REVEALED: Tesla involved in crash that killed driver WAS on autopilot after victim's family say he complained about the technology veering toward VERY SAME safety barrier he smashed into

Tesla says the vehicle in a fatal California crash was operating on autopilot, the latest accident to involve self-driving technology.

The automaker says 38-year-old Walter Huang, who was killed in the accident on March 23, did not have his hands on the steering wheel for six seconds before the crash.

But according to Huang's family, the Mountain View resident complained 'before' the accident about the car's autopilot feature.

His brother, Will, alleged that Walter raised concerns that '7-10 times the car would swivel toward that same exact barrier during autopilot.'

Patriot Missiles Are Made in America and Fail Everywhere

I talked to a fellow who worked at White Sands years ago about the Patriot. He called it the best 1950's tech that money could buy!

The point is there is no evidence that Saudi Arabia has intercepted any Houthi missiles during the Yemen conflict. And that raises a disquieting thought: Is there any reason to think the Patriot system even works?

NOW IT’S OFFICIAL: FDA ANNOUNCED THAT VACCINES ARE CAUSING AUTISM!

THE FDA HAS PUBLISHED CONCLUSIVE PROOF ON THEIR WEBSITE THAT THE DTAP VACCINE CAN CAUSE AUTISM.

According to the FDA’s online Biologics Blood Vaccines document, a vaccine manufacturer admits on its package insert that their vaccination can cause autism as one of many adverse reactions.

These adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequencies or to establish a causal relationship to components of Tripedia vaccine.

GM corn found in over 90% of tortillas in MX

A team of researchers has been surprised by the discovery that slightly over 90% of tortillas sold in Mexico contain traces of genetically modified corn.

Overall, the study by the National Autonomous University of México found that 82% of all corn products, such as tostadas, flour, cereals and snacks, contained some level of genetically modified sequences.

The researchers also found the herbicide glyphosate in approximately 27.7% of the samples that tested positive for transgenic corn.

Mail-order cancer tests deliver false positives 40% of the time, new analysis claims

At-home genetic test for cancer risk are inaccurate 40 percent of the time, a new analysis claims.

The tests like the recently-approved version by DNA testing firm 23andMe are intended to detect mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes that are associated with higher risk of developing breast, ovarian and prostate cancer.

However, an analysis by Ambry Genetics, a company that interprets data from consumer DNA tests, found that nearly half of the results supplied in the last month from various other firms were false positives.

As a result at least seven people were given an unnecessary scare, adding yet another reason to question the reliability of such tests that the FDA has warned is 'seriously limited'.

Mainstream media blackout as Italian parliamentary commission find major problems with vaccines after an 18-year investigation, finds higher risks of death and illnesses such as cancer, autoimmune disorders and hypersensitivity associated

On Feb. 7th 2018, an Italian Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry has issued a report that finds higher risks of death and illnesses such as cancer, autoimmune disorders and hypersensitivity associated to the administration of combined vaccines.

After an 18-year investigation into causes of thousands of cases of serious illnesses and deaths amongst personnel affected to military missions abroad, this Parliamentary Commission has found a significant risk of cancer and autoimmune diseases associated with the use of combined and multiple vaccines in the prophylactic schedule. While the 4th ‘Uranium’ Commission initially investigated other factors such as exposure to uranium from bombshells and other war hazards, the causal association with vaccines was raised both by personnel accounts and by the fact that soldiers who did not leave the country had also been affected.

Vaccines in the military vaccine program are the same as those used for infants.

A moment later the electric car burst into flames. It was unclear if the autopilot was involved in the crash, but the the good news was that the driver survived the dramatic crash unscathed.

Johns Hopkins researcher releases shocking report on flu vaccines

The esteemed Dr. Russell Blaylock, who is quoted in this article, wrote the very first review on Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. He totally gets Technocracy, and his assessment of vaccines is spot on. ? TN Editor

In 2015, a whole new slew of flu vaccines found themselves getting approved by the Federal Drug Administration. This isn’t an uncommon practice; most flu vaccines pass inspection every year. It’s well-known advice that has been passed down from doctor to patient that the flu vaccine is something that we all should get, but it has been quickly surfacing that what’s in the vaccines–especially those from 2015 and after–might actually be more damaging than simply rolling the dice on getting the flu.

Future of TV in balance as AT&T, Time Warner plead merger case

***
The Justice Department filed a lawsuit in November to stop AT&T, which has some 25 million pay-TV subscribers, from closing the $85 billion deal. AT&T says a merger benefits consumers by creating efficiencies.

If the government loses, that could open up the field for similar tie-ups between distributors and content providers. But a win could strengthen the hand of antitrust regulators looking at other, similarly structured mergers.

Opening arguments in the case are set for Thursday before Judge Richard Leon>>>
