U.S. $360b in deals. Now they want Trump to rescind 9/11 lawsuit law.

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA

President Donald Trump struck a series of deals with Saudi Arabia on his two-day visit but the kingdom is still anxiously waiting for him to deliver on something else: the repeal of a contentious 2016 law that allows relatives of 9/11 victims to sue the kingdom for their deaths.

Saudi officials have been quietly lobbying the administration and Congress to overturn the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, which led more than 800 families to file suit in New York in March.

Nestlé Faces Backlash Over Collecting Water From Drought-Stricken Southern California

In the San Bernardino Mountains, an intricate maze of pipes collects and funnels tens of millions of gallons of water each year, which is the original source for Nestle’s Arrowhead Water.

Larry Lawrence, who manages the spring for Nestle Waters, said it is a naturally flowing source. They do not pump anything, siphon anything. It just naturally flows.

Spring water collects in a tunnel and moves downhill through a pipeline. At the bottom, tanker trucks load and transport it to a nearby plant, where the water is bottled.

According to the Beverage Marketing Co., the water business is booming, and bottled water sales were up 9 percent over the last year. The trend has sent Nestle looking for new sources to meet customer demand.

Forest Service Official Who Let Nestle Drain California Water Now Works for Them

Along with Nestle’s natural resource manager, Larry Lawrence, Zimmerman is a long time member of the board for the nonprofit Southern California Mountains Foundation. Zimmerman played a key role in helping launch the foundation — which is dedicated to youth initiatives and programs focused on the national forest — back in 1993.

And don’t forget who happens to be the foundation’s most noteworthy longtime donor — Nestle.

Shocking to absolutely no one, on the foundation’s 20th anniversary in 2013, the Zimmerman Community Partnership Award — so named for Zimmerman’s efforts “to create a public/private partnership for resource development and community engagement” — was presented to Arrowhead.

Not so coincidentally, Zimmerman, who retired in 2005, has since found gainful employment — as a paid consultant for Nestle.

New Ebola Outbreak, Or Is It A Hoax?

I’ve been around the block on the Ebola story a dozen times. Here are the issues the press isn’t reporting—

There is one predictable outcome: at Congo clinics and hospitals, frightened people who arrive with what are labeled “early signs” of Ebola will be labeled as probable cases. What are those symptoms? Fever, chill, sore throat, cough, headache, joint pain. Sound familiar? Normally, this would just be called the flu.

Here’s another point you won’t see discussed on the mainstream news: the reliability of tests used to diagnose Ebola.

Two of those major tests—antibody and PCR—are notoriously unreliable.

Scott Adams: The Time I Nudged Climate Scientists into Debunking their Own Models

If you have been reading this blog and following me on Periscope, you know I announced I was going to use my own powers of persuasion to nudge climate scientists into doing a better job of communicating their side of things. The climate models are the least-credible thing scientists do, and yet scientists have been using their models as their featured evidence. No matter which side you are on with the climate change debate, you don’t want either side using their weakest argument. You want both sides to do their best so we can accurately judge who has the strongest thinking. To that end, I framed the “climate models” as being necessarily incomplete because you really need economic models to decide how to react to climate change, not scientific models. And long-term economic models have zero credibility. Even scientists would agree on that point.

THE PRICE OF HELLFIRE MISSILES: EVERYTHING AMERICANS COULD BUY AT THE COST OF A DRONE STRIKE

As Donald Trump’s plan to Make America Great Again unfolds, there is at least one thing he will not need to worry about because the United States is already greatest at it — spending the most money to kill people. With US defense spending being more than the next 7 countries combined, none of our competitors will be catching up to us anytime soon. In this case, the greatness of the US is beyond question and it comes at a cost — but that is the price we pay for our freedom. And no one can put a price on freedom. But have any of you wondered — if you could put a price on freedom — what its cost would be? Or, in other words — how great exactly is the price of things like Hellfire missiles?

New evidence: Balkan Peninsula instead of Mesopotamia was the cradle of civilization

More and more evidence confirm a very brave thesis, according to which the Balkan Peninsula, rather than ancient Mesopotamia, is the cradle of our civilization. The evidence of a little known culture which preceded the Egyptian and even the Sumerian cultures attracts the attention of the scientists, thus turning the perceptions of antiquity upside down. Remains of this ancient society have been gradually emerging from the ashes of the human history to take us some 6-7 millennia back in time when a highly-developed unknown civilization flourished on our lands. We are talking about a period which preceded the Sumerian one at least one millennium, BNR reports.???????? ?? standartnews.com

Trump's Budget Will Slash $1.7 Trillion In Entitlements, Cut Food Stamps By 25%

Here are some of the highlights from the latest batch of trial balloons:

The budget will slash $1.7 trillion in spending on entitlement programs, according to Bloomberg.
Trump’s budget will include a massive nearly $200 billion cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the modern version of food stamps, over the next 10 years – what amounts to a 25% reduction, according to The Washington Post.
The food stamp cuts are part of a broader $274 billion welfare-reform effort, according to a report by The Associated Press.
The budget calls for about $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid for fiscal year 2018, WaPo reported.
The budget also calls for $2.6 billion in border security spending, $1.6 billion of which will be earmarked for Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.’s southern border.

Mount Everest's Hillary Step collapses, mountaineers confirm

A famous feature near the summit of Mount Everest, known as the Hillary Step, has collapsed, potentially making the world's highest peak even more dangerous for climbers.

Last year, pictures appeared to show a change in shape to the 12-metre rocky outcrop, named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person to scale the mountain.

It is thought to have been destroyed in Nepal's 2015 earthquake, but snow coverage made the news hard to confirm.

British mountaineer Tim Mosedale confirmed the collapse after he reached the summit this week.

"It's official — The Hillary Step is no more," he said in a Facebook post.

State of emergency is declared on Greek island battling a plague of locusts on a Biblical scale!

A tiny Greek island has declared a state of emergency after being plagued by a swarm of locusts. Villagers and volunteers have been trying to spray pesticides all over the sleepy port island of Agios Efstratios in an attempt to fix the problem.

But they have only had limited success and declared a state of emergency after the rampant pests ate much of the islands vegetation - leaving livestock starving.

Students from a university in Athens have arrived to try and help the 200 residents to get rid of the swarm using bug spray but have been hampered by the Aegean island's rocky terrain.

SPECIAL: Jared Kushner Working for Israel to Enable Saudi Arabian Nuclear Attack Against Iran UPDATE 2: Gulf NATO to Wage War on Iran & Syria

ROBERT STEELE: I have learned from a person I trust that Jared Kushner is being used by Israel to rapidly enable Saudi Arabian nuclear attack capability against Iran. In his recent call to the Lockheed CEO asking for a 12% discount (it should have been 50%) on Lockheed’s missile defense system, Kushner was overheard discussing the arming of the Saudis with nuclear missiles with what sounded like an Israeli intelligence officer. See the Updates. Donald Trump is becoming impeachable by We the People.

My source tells me that the Israeli’s believe they can incite a limited nuclear war between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and that the nuclearization of Saudi Arabia will discourage Russia from deepening its support of Syria while also serving as a threat against Iran.

Hawaii seeks to ban toxic chemical sunscreens to save the coral reefs from chemical decimation

Many snorkelers who are drawn to Hawaii’s coral reefs have noticed that they are not brimming with life the way they once did, and it looks like they only have themselves to blame. A lot of explanations have been put forth for coral die-offs, but one of the biggest culprits is the sunscreen that is worn by people who swim in the waters. In fact, a staggering 14,000 tons of sunscreen are washed off into our planet’s oceans each year.

The problem has gotten so bad that Senator Will Espero has proposed a state bill that will outlaw the sale of sunscreen that contains octinoxate and oxybenzone. These two ingredients are responsible for many of the problems coral reefs are currently facing, and they enter the water when people who wear sunscreen go swimming, surfing, snorkeling or even take beach showers.

This green and poisoned land: River is devastated by toxic tsunami of sludge from a 'green' energy plant receiving thousands in subsidies from YOU

You would struggle to find a lovelier view anywhere than that from Pencefn, a hilltop farm near Tregaron in mid-Wales.

Lush meadows with sheep grazing peacefully roll down towards the valley of the Teifi, renowned for its salmon and sea trout. Close by are the Cambrian Mountains, where the river begins its journey at the limpid Teifi Pools.

But dwarfing the main farm are the towers and tanks of an anaerobic digester. The Government-subsidised 'green guzzler' turns animal excrement, human food waste and specially grown rye into methane gas, which is burnt in a generator to make supposedly environmentally friendly electricity for the National Grid.

How much Marijuana has been Grown in Washington? Over 150,000 Pounds of Useable Marijuana was Produced in Fiscal Year 2017

How much marijuana has been grown in Washington? Over 150,000 pounds of useable marijuana produced in fiscal year 2017 under Washington’s Legal System. Washington’s legal marijuana market is booming, which is resulting in a lot of cannabis being grown.

According to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, there has been 363,268 pounds (lbs) of marijuana harvested in fiscal year (FY) 2017, which began on July 1, 2016 and ends on June 30. Of this harvested marijuana, 155,494 lbs is considered “useable”, which is what is sold at marijuana retail outlets.

Flashback: Six Diseases Return To US as Migration Advocates Celebrate ‘World Refugee Day’

The returning diseases are;

1. Tuberculosis
2. Measles
3. Whooping Cough
4. Mumps
5. Scarlet Fever
6. Bubonic Plague

The near eradication of these diseases in the United States during the twentieth century was a remarkable accomplishment of American civilization. Until recently, most Americans believed these diseases were gone from our shores for good.

But a politicized public health system, and a rise in the subsidized migration into the United States, however, have combined to reverse a century of progress.

Flashback: WHY BLAME "ANTI-VAXXERS" INSTEAD OF IMMIGRANTS FOR MEASLES OUTBREAKS?

The usual clickbait sites are gleefully blaming "anti-vaxxers", parents opposed to vaccines for their children, for the measles outbreak.

Italy makes 12 vaccinations compulsory for children

The government in Italy has ruled that children must be vaccinated against 12 common illnesses before they can enrol for state-run schools.

Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni blamed a decrease in vaccinations in part on a "spread of anti-scientific theories".

Italy has recorded nearly three times as many measles cases so far this year than for all of 2016.

If children are not vaccinated by the age of six, the school starting age, their parents will be fined.

...

The twelve conditions children must be immunised against are:

polio
diphtheria
tetanus
hepatitis B
haemophilus influenzae B
meningitis B
meningitis C
measles
mumps
rubella
whooping cough
chickenpox

"We are sending a very strong message to the public," said Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin.

Getting Assange: The Untold Story

It may have seemed that way, but there was always serious purpose. In 2008, a secret Pentagon document prepared by the “Cyber Counterintelligence Assessments Branch” foretold a detailed plan to discredit WikiLeaks and smear Assange personally.

The “mission” was to destroy the “trust” that was WikiLeaks’ “centre of gravity”. This would be achieved with threats of “exposure [and] criminal prosecution”. Silencing and criminalising such an unpredictable source of truth-telling was the aim.

Image result for wikileaks

Perhaps this was understandable. WikiLeaks has exposed the way America dominates much of human affairs, including its epic crimes, especially in Afghanistan and Iraq: the wholesale, often homicidal killing of civilians and the contempt for sovereignty and international law.

Preparing for the Collapse of the Petrodollar System, Part 2

In part one of this four part article series, I provided a background to our modern petrodollar system by explaining the "dollars for gold" arrangement that was put in place by global leaders through the Bretton Woods conference in the final days of World War II.

The article provided a brief evolution of the Bretton Woods agreement from its inception in 1944 to its ultimate demise in 1971. As detailed, in the late 1960's, this "dollars for gold" system had become unsustainable as Washington insisted upon the adoption of a "welfare state" that relied upon massive entitlements and a "warfare state" that required perpetual wars.

Preparing for the Collapse of the Petrodollar System, Part 1

As an economist, I have been trained to view the world through the lens of incentives. (I am a "bottom line" kind of guy.) And just as every action is motivated by an underlying incentive, every decision has a related consequence.

This brief article details the actions, incentives, and related consequences that the United States has created through its attempts to maintain global hegemony through something known as the petrodollar system.

Giant Plants of Southern Oregon

Jack would have forgot about the beanstalk if he was growing some of these seeds!

Oregon medical marijuana growers are allowed up to six plants per patient, and many patients grow for themselves. So if you’re an experienced and ambitious grower, but you’re only allowed half a dozen plants, what do you do? You grow them really, really big.

Under the Radar

The Pacific Northwest grows some of the world’s best marijuana, and legalization in Washington and Oregon has legitimized this rapidly expanding industry. Huge green crosses now advertise cannabis businesses along I-5, and the region’s green rush has been augmented by legalization in California, creating a sold green bloc of legal West Coast states. Competition has lowered prices, but the demand remains high, especially for organic, pesticide-free, medical-grade cannabis.

Jeff Sessions Intent on Including Medical Pot in His Sinister War on Drugs

Given Sessions relentless opposition to medical marijuana ,underscored recently when he said it has been hyped, maybe too much, advocates are worried that the administration is planning a full frontal assault on state MMJ programs, 29 in all.Meanwhile, a Quinnipiac poll last month found that 94 percent of Americans, including 90 percent of Republicans, support medical marijuana.

Ebola Spreading: Infections Up 800% In Last Week: Officials Race To Track Down 400 Possible Contacts

Last week three suspected Ebola infections were detected in a remote region of the Congo. Since then, World Health Organization officials have been scrambling to contain the virus.

Their efforts appear to have failed.

The contagion continues to spread, and though it’s nowhere near the 11,000 people who were infected during the outbreak in 2014, the infection rate has spiked over 800% in just the last seven days, with at least nine new cases reported in the last 24 hours:

The number of suspected cases of Ebola has risen to 29 from nine in less than a week in an isolated part of Democratic Republic of Congo, where three people have died from the disease since April 22, the World Health Organization said on Thursday.

The risk from the outbreak is “high at the national level,” the W.H.O. said, because the disease was so severe and was spreading in a remote area in northeastern Congo with “suboptimal surveillance” and limited access to health care.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I feel so sorry for the people who got hit with this.

But I want to find out, with so many US operations in Africa, how the US military is planning to keep our soldiers safe from this scourge,in light of the fact that there has been developed a vaccine against ebola which has offered 100% immunity to test subjects?!?

Ebola vaccine gives 100% protection, study finds

Russia’s ‘Killer Satellites’ Re-Awaken

Now after being idle for a year or more, two of the mystery-sats are on the move again. On April 20, 2017, one of them reportedly shaved hundreds of meters off its orbit in order to zoom within 1,200 meters of a big chunk of a defunct Chinese weather satellite that China smashed in a controversial 2007 test of an anti-satellite rocket.

By orbital standards, that's pretty close.

The Russian spacecrafts' impressive maneuvers have got observers scratching their heads. No one outside of the Russian government -- and probably the U.S. military -- seems to know for sure what the satellites are for.

Cannabis Prevents Brain Aging

By Marco Torres

Memory performance decreases with increasing age. Cannabis can reverse these aging processes in the brain. Low doses of the active ingredient in cannabis, THC, has the opposite effect on the elderly, reversing brain aging and restoring learning and memory.

This was shown in mice by scientists at the University of Bonn with their colleagues at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel). Old animals were able to regress to the state of two-month-old mice with a prolonged low-dose treatment with a cannabis active ingredient. This opens up new options, for instance, when it comes to treating dementia. The results are now presented in the journal Nature Medicine...

China claims breakthrough in mining 'flammable ice'

Azure Farms submits a tentative weed management plan

The local agribusiness boys are the ones trying to get the organic farm sprayed with herbicides. The local courthouse got over 400,000 emails from you good folks,but the agribusiness boys wont give up.

http://katu.com/news/local/oregon-organic-farm-plans-to-control-weed-i...

The organic farm in Sherman County has been criticized by neighboring farmers, who say noxious weeds are spreading to their ground.

A last-minute weed management plan filed by an organic farm may be “workable” if the farm managers follow through, a Sherman County official said.
The Oregon Wheat Growers League urged a “prompt and rigorous review” of Azure’s proposal.

“From our members on the ground, it’s become clear that even a casual observation of Azure’s property makes it clear that their noxious weed problem is severe and has been worsening for many years,” league CEO Blake Rowe and growers Bryan Cranston and Chris Moore said in a prepared statement.”

Driving on eggshells: Researchers develop way to make TIRES from ground up food waste (and tomato peels will give them a reddish hue)

Researchers have discovered that food waste can partially replace the petroleum-based filler that has been used in producing tires for more than a century.

The team found that substituting different portions of filler with ground eggshells and tomato peels allowed them to create the same synergistic effects – the rubber retained its flexibility.

The discovery was made by researchers at The Ohio State University, which believes it will pave the way for cleaner methods for producing tires, all while reducing America's dependence on foreign oil and keeping waste out of landfills.

A New Potential for Cannabis:Treating Drug Addictions

It’s long been known that cannabis’ main ingredient can help treat pain and lessen the effects of and sometimes even treat seizures. With more and more studies being conducted on the plant, there will likely be even more cures found. And maybe, cannabis could help those who suffer from alcohol or drug addictions. Abstinence when recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction proves difficult, and many addicts relapse several times before becoming completely sober. But now, maybe cannabis can help those who suffer from chemical dependency.

But new research out of Yale University just about dashes the entire drug approval process to pieces, revealing that an astounding one-third of all pharmaceutical drugs approved by the government as safe and effective later turn out to be dangerous or ineffective.

The measure will be set in motion starting July 2018, and it is expected to raise millions of dollars while punishing those who don’t want to vaccinate their kids.

The Buttinski Should Butt Out of Korea

Korea is none of the U.S. government’s business. The only proper course of action is for the Pentagon and the CIA to exit the country and bring those 23,000 American soldiers stationed in Korea home. No negotiations. No agreements. No talks. Just butt out of what is none of your business and exit the scene by coming home.

Why are there 23,000 U.S. troops in Korea? It’s because the U.S. government, headed by President Harry S. Truman and his newly established national-security establishment, decided to intervene in another country’s civil war more than half-a-century ago.

Officials say the Airway Heights water supply may be contaminated with chemicals from Fairchild Air Force Base just west of Spokane.

The city and Air Force said in a joint statement Tuesday evening that Airway Heights water customers are advised to not drink city water nor use it for cooking until the water system is considered free of contaminants.

Our military service members and their families are not "expendable", thank you very much!!

And by when is this issue going to be remedied?!?

If I were a family member at this base, particularly if I had kids, I would respectfully request that the base commander hold a press conference, and explain the entire scope and breadth of this problem, what the chemical contaminants are, and the timeline for remediation.

This is tantamount to reckless endangerment of our service members and their families, and must be stopped ASAP.

Her comments border on hysteria and are reminiscent of Donald Trumps constant, stupid comments that get him into hot water regularly.

Theresa May, the conservative Tory party leader, trotted out the typical lies that are repeated by ignorant prohibitionist fools, like Mary Fallin’s recent comments in the U.S.A.

NEWLY UNSEALED RECORDS SHOW DYLANN ROOF WAS TAKING ANTIDEPRESSANTS BEFORE MASS MURDER

Dylann Roof’s mental state was hidden from jurors, according to a November report which concluded Roof suffered from delusions of grandeur and was identified as autistic. Roof was convicted in the killing of nine Black parishioners in 2015 at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston.

Make no mistake, Dylann Roof is a deranged mass murderer who slaughtered innocent people in cold blood. He deserves to die a horrid death. However, as noted below, there is a lot more to this story than what’s on the surface.

The new details about Roof’s mental state were recently unsealed. According to CNN, “The revelations came after US District Judge Richard Gergel unsealed 19 documents from competency hearings that help paint a picture of the 23-year-old’s mental state both as a teen and while he was being held in prison after the church massacre.”

The government has stated it will abide by the court’s decision (although that remains to be seen and some question the court’s impartiality). The final hearing will probably take place in July. The case before the Supreme Court was brought by Aruna Rodrigues who accuses various officials and the regulatory authorities of unremitting fraud and regulatory delinquency.

OREGON OFFICIALS THREATEN TO SEIZE 2,000 ACRE ORGANIC FARM, SPRAY IT WITH ROUNDUP

Sherman County Oregon believes the 2,000 acre Azure Farms is not doing enough to control Canada Thistle, a noxious weed. In this case, not doing enough means not spraying weeds with herbicides.

To remedy the alleged problem, the county proposes seizing the farm and spraying everything with Roundup and other herbicides. Azure Farms is certified organic. Of course, organic farms cannot by definition use herbicides, so the farm would be forced out of business by the county government.

Adding insult to injury, the county would place a lien on the property forcing it to pay for the herbicides.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sherman county officials have most likely been purchased by Monsanto, and/or other manufacturers of aligned poisons; it was, most probably, an easy "investment" to the benefit of these chemical companies.

Jewish life in Iran was 'always better than in Europe'

In Iran it is prohibited by law to have any contact to Israel. Is that difficult for you as Jew?

According to our religious teachings, we must obey the laws of the country we live in. And being a Jew is very different from being a Zionist. There are - and have always been - Jews all around the world who are very critical of the behavior of Israel's government and army. Being a Jew means we must obey Torah and Talmud. Invading other countries and killing innocent people are not Moses' teachings. We cannot accept Israel's behavior as Jewish; it is a political and not a religious movement. I personally think that, as the victims of the greatest genocide in the world, Jews should have more empathy with the Palestinian people.

Massachusetts Attorney General says it’s okay for mainstream media to publish death threats against “anti-vaxxers”

The mainstream media has just been given a green light by the Massachusetts Attorney General to openly publish death threats against so-called “anti-vaxxers” (a derogatory term which means anyone who questions the sanity of injecting children with mercury, a brain-damaging heavy metal and known neurotoxin). Proof of this is found in the letter shown below.

BACKGROUND: Following the Boston Herald’s call for anti-vaxxers to be “hanged to death”, Natural News issued an urgent action item for readers and fans to report the Boston Herald to law enforcement authorities. A wave of complaints hit the Boston FBI, Boston Police and the Massachusetts Attorney General, requesting criminal investigations into the Boston Herald for its unabashed call for anti-vaxxers to be executed in the same way black slaves were once lynched in America.

In response, as shown in the letter below, the Massachusetts Attorney General has declared it will not investigate the matter.

For starters, Natural News urged its readers and fans to report the Boston Herald to the Boston FBI and Boston Police, resulting in a wave of criminal complaints, phone calls and tweets being unleashed against the Herald for its advocacy of “murder in the name of science.” Not only are vaccine pushers murdering and maiming children with toxic vaccines that harm over 100,000 children a year in the USA alone, they’re also now openly calling for the mass executions of those who oppose the medical murder of children.

HELP NEEDED: Azure Organic Farm in Oregon about to be forcibly mass poisoned with glyphosate by the county government

Sherman County may be issuing a Court Order on May 22, 2017, to quarantine Azure Farms and possibly to spray the whole farm with poisonous herbicides, contaminating them with Milestone, Escort and Roundup herbicides.

This will destroy all the efforts Azure Farms has made for years to produce the very cleanest and healthiest food humanly possible. About 2,000 organic acres would be impacted; that is about 2.8 times the size of the City of London, England, and 1.5 times the size of the city center of Philadelphia that could be sprayed with noxious, toxic, polluting herbicides.

The county would then put a lien on the farm to pay for the expense of the labor and chemicals used.

New Jersey lawmakers introduce recreational marijuana bill

Contrary to Gov. Chris Christie’s anti-pot stance, New Jersey lawmakers are working to become the next state to legalize marijuana.

A bill to legalize, regulate, and tax the recreational adult use of marijuana was introduced in the state Senate on Monday, reports NJ.com.

Under the bill, adults 21 and over would be allowed to possess up to one ounce of marijuana or 16 ounces of cannabis-infused products, including edibles. A tax on marijuana sales would be established, beginning at seven percent and rising to 25 percent over the course of five years.

Although Democratic Sen. Nicholas Scutari doesn’t expect the law to pass this year under Gov. Christie, he hopes the bill will gain enough support once Christie leaves office in January.

However, those previous incidents could pale in comparison to the destructive capacity of Campi Flegrei; a massive supervolcano that lies just outside of Naples. Researchers in Italy are currently trying to determine if recent activity around the site could be warning us of an impending disaster.

Prominent Lawyer Prashant Bhushan Urges Indian Government To Stop Commercialisation Of GM Mustard

The environment ministry in India will make the final call after the Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee recently gave a positive recommendation for the commercial cultivation of GM mustard. Whether the crop is commercially cultivated could depend on the Supreme Court, which is hearing a case seeking a moratorium on its commercial release. The government has stated it will abide by the court’s decision (although that remains to be seen and some question the court’s impartiality). The final hearing will probably take place in July. The case before the Supreme Court was brought by Aruna Rodrigues who accuses various officials and the regulatory authorities of unremitting fraud and regulatory delinquency.

Health Ranger SCIENCE: Horsetail herb prevents Alzheimer’s and dementia by removing toxic ALUMINUM from your body

Aluminum is a toxic metal that damages your brain, accelerating Alzheimer’s and dementia. No wonder the vaccine industry puts it into the vaccines, huh? In combination with mercury, another potent neurotoxin, aluminum ravages the brain, causing permanent brain damage that’s quite literally leading to the Vaccine Rage wave of insanity and mental illness now sweeping our society.

Vectors of aluminum exposure include vaccines, over-the-counter medications (antacids are often loaded with aluminum), cookware and even deodorants which are typically made with aluminum salts.

But how do you remove aluminum from your body in a safe, natural and affordable way? The answer is found in the humble Horsetail herb that grows like a weed in many regions of the Americas.

U.S. MILITARY IS WORLD’S LARGEST POLLUTER – HUNDREDS OF BASES GRAVELY CONTAMINATED

Last week, mainstream media outlets gave minimal attention to the news that the U.S. Naval station in Virginia Beach had spilled an estimated 94,000 gallons of jet fuel into a nearby waterway, less than a mile from the Atlantic Ocean. While the incident was by no means as catastrophic as some other pipeline spills, it underscores an important yet little-known fact – that the U.S. Department of Defense is both the nation’s and the world’s, largest polluter.

Producing more hazardous waste than the five largest U.S. chemical companies combined, the U.S. Department of Defense has left its toxic legacy throughout the world in the form of depleted uranium, oil, jet fuel, pesticides, defoliants like Agent Orange and lead, among others.

In 2014, the former head of the Pentagon’s environmental program told Newsweek that her office has to contend with 39,000 contaminated areas spread across 19 million acres just in the U.S. alone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely insane, and must be fixed as quickly by the US government as is possible.
