When you bite into that juicy ground beef burger, you might find a little something extra in it - like chunks of blue plastic.

Yes, it's time to check your food again during this never-ending cycle of recalls. JBS USA has recalled 35,464 pounds of ground beef sold under numerous labels because it may contain chunks of hard plastic. This was discovered after a complaint was received from a consumer who found blue, hard plastic pieces in one of the products. The products are from March 22, so they would most likely be found in your freezer.

Here's the complete list.

DEEP FAKES VERSUS DEEP STATE: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU CAN’T TELL WHAT’S REAL

The arms race has started: deep fakes versus tech that exposes them. The only problem is that the technology that will supposedly tell us what is real and what is not… was created by DARPA. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is the government agency responsible for the developing things like killer robots, artificial intelligence, swarms of tiny drones, and even experiments with mind reading technology. And those are just the projects we know about.

Missouri House passes bill to prevent plant-based meat companies from using the word “meat”

In Missouri, plant-based proteins designed to look and feel like meat may no longer be allowed to use the term “meat” on their packaging, according to an omnibus agriculture bill which passed in the state’s House of Representatives yesterday.

The unprecedented piece of legislation would specifically prohibit the use of the term “meat” on products that don’t come from animals. And, to be clear, the prohibition applies not just to plant-based products. Other forms of alt-protein, including so-called “clean” meat cultured from animal cells, would also be barred from using the term. According to the bill, meat is only “meat” if it comes from traditionally raised livestock—that is, from live animals specifically farmed for their flesh.

House Rep. Jeff Knight, a former livestock auctioneer who sponsored a standalone bill identical to the meat-labeling provision in the omnibus bill, intends the new legislation to safeguard the state’s ranchers economically.

Alfie Evans’ Death Exposes The Government’s Real Agenda

You see, those who advocate for government-run healthcare attempt to sell it under the guise of “helping people” and “taking care of the least of these.”

But the case of Alfie Evans uncovers the chilling reality of the government using their power to strip parents of their right to protect their own children.

Stunning finding reveals autism is highest in areas with the highest vaccination rates

The surge of autism diagnoses in recent years has left many people looking for an explanation. Oft-labeled a “conspiracy theory,” or something to that effect, the suspicion that vaccines are a potential cause of autism is on the rise. New research from the Canadian government has indirectly shown that in highly vaccinated populations, autism rates are noticeably higher. These shocking findings are sure to leave vaccine propagandists reeling while they try to somehow discredit the findings of a government agency.

As The World Mercury Project reports, Canada ranks in the “top 10” countries for autism rates. In 2018, it was revealed that 1 in 66 Canadian children were on the autism spectrum, based on data collected in 2015.

The Public Health Agency of Canada even crafted the “National ASD Surveillance System,” or NASS, to track the number of people diagnosed with autism. The system was intended to provide a look at autism diagnoses “both across regions and over time.”

Court ruling confirms Gardasil vaccine kills people… scientific evidence beyond any doubt… so where is the outcry?

May God bless the Tarsell family, who fought the U.S. government eight long years to validate a medical burden of proof that the Gardasil vaccine killed their daughter. The Tarsell’s 21-year-old daughter Christina Richelle “died from an arrhythmia induced by an autoimmune response” to Gardasil, an HPV vaccine that she received only days before her death.

The final ruling has been confirmed by the Department of Health and Human Services: Merck’s Gardasil vaccine causes autoimmune problems that cause sudden debilitation and/or death. If the young girl had been gunned down by a madman with an AR-15, then there’d be national headlines and a march on Washington. Since this young woman was “shot” to death by a vaccine, the whole story gets swept under the rug.

Flint water whistleblower wins the Goldman Environmental Prize

LeeAnne Walters was a stay-at-home mother of four living in Flint, Michigan, when she and her children began noticing troubling health problems in the spring of 2014. Her 3-year-old twins kept breaking out in strange, burning rashes after their bath, and she and her daughters started losing clumps of hair in the shower. Her 14-year-old son was hospitalized several times for severe abdominal pains. At one point, Walters’ eyelashes fell out.

The family was baffled and alarmed, but they couldn’t find a logical cause. It was only months later, after the water from her kitchen sink started running brown, that Walters began to make the frightening connection.

Most of us have heard about Flint, Michigan’s lead-contaminated water debacle. But few know that it was Walters, working relentlessly behind the scenes, who finally exposed the problem and galvanized her community to fight for clean water.

Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: 'Is curing patients a sustainable business model?'

Goldman Sachs analysts attempted to address a touchy subject for biotech companies, especially those involved in the pioneering "gene therapy" treatment: cures could be bad for business in the long run.

"Is curing patients a sustainable business model?" analysts ask in an April 10 report entitled "The Genome Revolution."

"The potential to deliver 'one shot cures' is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies," analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. "While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow."

Gold Leaving US Vaults: Signs of Upcoming Currency War and Armed Conflict

An armed conflict with Iran might be much closer than generally believed. The nuclear deal has been honored, to everyone’s satisfaction but to Washington’s chagrin. Iran undoubtedly has no military capability that would be a threat to the US. It has never been responsible for any terrorist acts committed abroad or things like that. But it has done something unforgivable in the eyes of the US. It has threatened the USD. That’s what Washington cannot accept, because if it does not support the dollar, there will be problems financing the US government’s huge federal debt. A war with Iran would eliminate the largest non-USD oil exporter. One thing leads to another. The gold repatriations are a precursor to a currency war and armed conflict. That’s what drives US foreign policy.

It’s “open season” on vaccinating pregnant women with toxic, harmful substances confirmed present in many vaccines

Everybody knows that when you’re pregnant you don’t drink coffee, smoke cigarettes or take pain medications, right? And no matter how tempting that glass of wine might look, as a conscientious mom-to-be you wouldn’t think of drinking alcohol during pregnancy. For a mother, the responsibilities of parenting start from the second she finds out she’s pregnant, and most moms take that responsibility very seriously, doing all they can to protect their babies.

Why is it, then, that mothers who are admonished not to take anything stronger than Paracetamol during pregnancy are also advised to get toxic vaccines? The Centers for Disease Control has long recommended that pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu, for example, and yet one of their own studies recently confirmed an alarming link between spontaneous miscarriages and the influenza vaccine.

AFTER TOO MANY SHOTS MISSED, FALL RIVER, MASS., ENDS DEAL WITH SHOTSPOTTER

The Fall River, Mass., Police Department and ShotSpotter, the $120,000-a-year gunshot detection system, have officially parted ways. The California-based company decided it could no longer offer its service to the city for free after police and administration officials balked at funding a system that they said worked less than 50 percent of the time and even missed all seven shots that were fired when a man was killed two months ago in downtown Fall River.

“This is, of course, nonsense,” he wrote. There is a reason “pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars on the influencing, education, and entertainment of doctors around the world.”

Zero-Calorie Sweeteners Also Lead To Diabetes and Obesity

By Natasha Longo

Increased awareness of the health consequences of eating too much sugar has fueled a dramatic uptick in the consumption of zero-calorie artificial sweeteners in recent decades. However, new research finds sugar replacements can also cause health changes that are linked with diabetes and obesity, suggesting that switching from regular to diet soda may be a case of ‘out of the frying pan, into the fire.’...

Will the iPhone X be Apple’s downfall? Mobile manufacturers’ slowing sales are a ‘bad omen’ for the firm as high-end handsets fail to attract customers

Signs that the iPhone X has been poorly received by consumers continue to pour in, as analysts warn slowing sales for its manufacturers are a bad omen.

Apple's five largest assemblers for the high-end smartphone have reported a sharp downturn in revenue in the first quarter of 2018.

This suggests that demand for the 10th anniversary handset has petered out just one financial quarter after its release.

APPLE SUED AN INDEPENDENT NORWEGIAN REPAIR SHOP IN BID TO MONOPOLIZE REPAIR -- AND LOST

Apple's efforts in particular to monopolize repair run deep. The company has worked alongside the Department of Homeland Security and ICE to seize counterfeit parts in the United States and raid shops of independent iPhone repair professionals. FOIA efforts to obtain details on just how deeply rooted Apple is in ICE's "Operation Chain Reaction" have been rejected. The efforts to "combat counterfeit goods" often obscures what this is really about for Apple: protecting a lucrative repair monopoly and thwarting anybody that might dare repair Apple devices for less money.

And Apple's efforts on this front are a decidedly global affair. More recently, Apple has been harassing an independent repair shop owner in Norway named Henrik Huseby. After Norway customs officials seized a shipment of 63 iPhone 6 and 6S replacement screens on their way to Huseby's repair shop, Apple threatened to sue the store owner unless they agreed to stop using aftermarket screens and pay a hefty settlement:

Quitting a Bad Habit: Germany to Massively Restrict Monsanto Weedkiller

On Tuesday, German Agriculture Minister Julia Kloeckner announced that legislation is being drafted to end the use of glyphosate in the country’s home gardens, parks and sports facilities.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in agricultural giant Monsanto's Roundup product, is used to kill weeds. In Germany, an estimated 40 percent of all crop-growing land is treated with the toxic chemical.

The German minister is also planning on establishing additional restrictions for the use of glyphosate in agriculture, except in areas that easily erode and cannot be exposed to heavy machinery.

iPhone X is dead as consumers turn their backs on pricey smartphones – analyst

Apple is likely to stop producing iPhone X smartphones, according to Mirabaud analyst Neil Campling. The oversupply of chips and high prices are the reason, he says.

...

The record inventories at TSMC show that Apple will not be producing more iPhone X models next year, the analyst said. "With the declines in iPhone X orders and the inventory issue at TSMC at record highs, which basically reflect a need to burn off inventory. Why? Because the iPhone X is dead," Campling wrote, as quoted by the media.

"The simple problem with X is that it is too expensive. Consumers are turning their backs on high-priced smartphones," he said. The device typically costs $999.

Feature in Apple’s latest software update is reportedly causing grief for iPhone 8 owners

A NEW feature in Apple’s latest iPhone software update is rendering certain phones unusable.

Apple released iOS 11.3 at the very end of March, and the update is reportedly killing touch functionality in iPhone 8s that have been repaired with third party screens.

So people who have managed to already break their iPhone 8 screen and went the cheaper route of getting it fixed by a non verified Apple repair shop are now at risk of having a useless phone.

Mass Shootings May Be Linked To Psychotropic Drug Use

Zoloft, Lexapro and Prozac have all become household names, generating billions of dollars each year for the pharmaceutical companies that produce them. But why will no one talk about the effect they are they having on the nation’s psychology?

“Why does it always seem that the shooter in these type of mass killings has been on some sort of psychotropic drugs?” asks former Texas Congressman Ron Paul. “Why is it no one is questioning these medications? All of which come with labels warning of horrific side effects. Perhaps one reason they are ignored is that the pharmaceutical industry spends billions each year lobbying congress.”

Mania, suicidal thoughts and dangerous impulses are all common side effects of these medications. With one in six Americans taking these mind-altering drugs, the link between medication and the rise of abhorrent behavior in our nation has yet to be properly investigated.

'Do NOT eat romaine lettuce,' CDC warns - as an expert explains why the fields where the leaf is grown in winter could be contaminated with E. coli for YEARS

This month alone, 53 Americans have been sickened by E. coli linked to romaine lettuce, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The agency issued a foreboding warning to anyone who had purchased any romaine, or lettuce that might be romaine if it could have been grown in Western Arizona: 'throw it away.'

This outbreak is particularly dangerous because it involves a strain of the bacteria that produces the potentially deadly Shiga toxin.

A food product safety expert told Daily Mail Online that the romaine contamination is to be taken seriously - and the ground where 90 percent of winter lettuce grows could be toxic for years.

''7 Days In Entebbe,' Film About Israeli Hostage Rescue, Is Actually Worth Seeing

I had seen the trailer twice at theatres, and it mentioned "the plight of the Palestinian people" while showing a hijacked airline, so it caught my attention. I already knew that Netanyahu's older brother was the only soldier killed in the raid to rescue the hostages in 1976. The rescue took place in Uganda while this country celebrated our 200th anniversary, on July 4, 1976. I fully expected this movie to be a propaganda piece, but was very pleasantly surprised. Very good acting and the Jewish director, who consulted with many who were actually involved in the rescue, presents an accurate historical recount of events, as well as examines the opinions of the "terrorists" on the struggle between Palestine & Israel. For that reason alone, this film deserves our patronage.

Trump Puts his Logo on the Military-Industrial Complex, Sets Up US Arms Sales with Syria Demo

Trump’s bid to increase U.S. arms sales, by using the Syria strikes as a PR blitz to show the effectiveness of U.S.-made weapons, is just the latest action taken by the president to cement his role as America’s top arms dealer

WASHINGTON – The week after the U.S., along with the U.K. and France, launched unilateral strikes against the Syrian government, the Trump administration is rolling out a “Buy American” weapons-selling initiative aimed at allowing other nations to buy even more weapons from U.S.-based arms manufacturers. According to Reuters, the initiative, set to be announced today, will speed up the approval of arms deals to U.S. allies and will call for members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet, as well as the president himself, to act as “closers” in major arms deals and salesmen for U.S. weapons companies at international air shows and weapons showcases.

US Debt Load Ballooning, Set To Outpace Some African Countries In 5yrs – IMF

In five years, the American debt burden will also be worse than some countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, such as Mozambique or Burundi.

The IMF says its forecasts are similar to those recently published by the Congressional Budget Office. The CBO said the US debt “is far greater than the debt in any year since just after World War II.”

The office also predicted that the debt held by the public will rise from 78 percent of GDP (or $16 trillion) at the end of 2018>>>

he Painful Truth About Last Year’s Failed Flu Vaccine

“…most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average 16% are found to be influenza positive.” – From the British Medical Journal editor, Peter Doshi, MD

“71 people would need to be treated with the flu vaccine to prevent one case. In other words, the flu vaccine did nothing for 70 out of 71 who received it. That means this study found the flu vaccine failed 99% (70/71).” — Dr David Brownstein

“Under ideal conditions (when the vaccine actually matches the main viruses circulating that season) you need to vaccinate 33 healthy adults to avoid one set of influenza symptoms. 33 is what is called the NNV (Number Needed to Vaccinate).” – Dr Tom Jefferson of the Cochrane Collaboration (Cochrane Database Syst.

NH365 110: Toxic Bras – Cancer Risks EXPOSED

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the “internet and e-mail rumors and at least one book have suggested that bras cause breast cancer by obstructing lymph flow. There is no good scientific or clinical basis for this claim, and a 2014 study of more than 1,500 women found no association between wearing a bra and breast cancer risk.”

That book they are referring to … no doubt, has everything to do with my special guest – who will expose the true connection between bras and breast cancer.
