Turkey army says has taken power over country

The Turkish army says it has taken power over the country and that the rule of law must remain a priority.

"The power in the country has been seized in its entirety," said a military statement read on NTV television, without giving further details.

Stewart Brennan-3 minutes ago
Let's see who the Turkish Military supports if this coup is successful...the US or Russia...then we will know for sure if US / Saudi Money bought them off or nationalism and security with their neighbours decided this defining moment...

Turkish military seizes state power according to media reports; jets flyover Ankara, Istanbul’s bridges closed

The Turkish military has reportedly released a statement to Reuters confirming they are in control of the government.
Turkish military aircraft were also reported flying low over the capital of Ankara late on Friday evening (July 15), according to Agence France-Presse.

Jul 15 13:14

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claims part of the military is attempting to overtake the country.

Yildirim added that it would be wrong to refer to the attempt as a coup, but denounced the "illegal attempt" to seize power by "a group" in the military.

"This is a mutiny attempt. We will not let this attempt win. We will uphold democracy," he said on Turkish NTV.

Official: 6 of 7 Remaining Obamacare Co-Ops on the Brink

Six of the seven Obamacare co-ops that are still in operation are currently on corrective action plans, according to an official from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The Illinois Department of Insurance announced this week that it was requesting an order of rehabilitation for the state’s Land of Lincoln Health co-op because of its unsustainable financial position. The co-op was originally awarded $160.2 million by CMS.

This closing announcement has brought the number of failed co-ops from 15, which was reported earlier this week, to 16.

Kevin Counihan, a top official for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services, told lawmakers on Wednesday that of the seven co-ops that are still in operation, six have been placed on corrective action plans. Co-ops are flagged for these plans when the agency has identified issues with the co-ops finances, operations, compliance or management processes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though this program is going to be yet another of Obama's "epic fail legacies".

It was never truly sustainable in the first place; and people who lose their coverage when these go under will be in one hell of a world of hurt, particularly if they have pre-existing conditions.

Sorry, Flint, Congress Has Nothing For You

Congress is set to adjourn for the summer without approving any of the big aid initiatives that had been discussed for Flint, Michigan.

Flint’s water has been tainted with lead since the state of Michigan switched the city’s water source to the Flint River in 2014 without following proper treatment protocols. The new water corroded the city’s lead pipes, and last fall research showed lead levels spiking in Flint kids’ blood. Lead is a dangerous toxin that can cause all kinds of health problems, including miscarriages and irreversible brain damage in children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single leader, from Flint's Mayor and City Council, to Michigan's Congressional Representatives, should be sued out of their positions, for having recklessly endangering the people of Flint, and do hard jail time for what they have allowed to happen to this city, and particularly to their children.

What Flint needs to do is appeal to the UN for funds to fix the problem, and the assignment of a water engineering specialist to make sure that the problem gets fixed correctly; that should embarrass the hell out of the state, the city fathers, and DC, which, on this issue, they richly deserve.

Clean, uncontaminated water should be a basic human right in this country, period, end of discussion.

Millions Of Tons Of Garbage Are Swirling In The Pacific Ocean “Trash Vortex”

By Brianna Acuesta

In the North Pacific, there is a sort of “trash vortex,” sometimes referred to as the great garbage patch, due to the diverging of ocean currents that have an estimated 13lbs of plastic per 2.2lbs of plankton. It swirls around “like a clock” in the ocean, along with other garbage, dead fish, and birds. Much of that plastic will not break down for generations after the people who threw them away...

Mike Pence, Trump’s likely running mate, has backed every free trade deal in the last 15 years

A horrible choice!

There are multiple reports that Mike Pence will be Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate. If he is, how will he explain away his support for the very same free trade deals that Trump has been bashing for more than a year?

Pence, like most economic conservatives, has been a staunch supporter of these deals—in particular, he backs the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade deal negotiated by the Obama administration with twelve nations around the Pacific rim.

Pence also defended the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and voted for the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) and continued trade with China during his 14 years in Congress.

Scientists Create Invisibility Cloak Made Of Nano-Sized Particles

Researchers from QMUL’s School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, worked with UK industry to demonstrate for the first time a practical cloaking device that allows curved surfaces to appear flat to electromagnetic waves. While the research might not lead to the invisibility cloak made famous in J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter novels quite yet, this practical demonstration could result in a step-change in how antennas are tethered to their platform. It could allow for antennas in different shapes and sizes to be attached in awkward places and a wide variety of materials.

The Delusion ‘I Am Not Responsible’

One of the many interesting details to be learned by understanding human psychology is how a person’s unconscious fear works in a myriad of ways to make them believe that they bear no responsibility for a particular problem.

This psychological dysfunctionality cripples a substantial portion of the human population in ways that work against the possibility of achieving worthwhile outcomes for themselves, other individuals, communities and the world as a whole. In an era when human extinction is now a likely near-term outcome of this dysfunctionality, it is obviously particularly problematic. So why does this happen and how does it manifest?

Toddler injected with 37 vaccines before the age of two left paralyzed and wheelchair-bound for life

At just 17 months of age, Otto Coleman's life changed drastically and suddenly. After receiving a shocking number of vaccines – 37 to be exact – he ended up being paralyzed with transverse myelitis, and will spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.

His father, Joshua Coleman, said that he took a close look at his son's vaccination records and was startled by what he found. "At seventeen months old, he had received thirty-seven vaccines, which is about three times the amount I got in my entire adult life."

House Passes GMO Labeling Bill, Obama Set To Sign

By Derrick Broze

A controversial bill that will prevent states from creating their own labeling standards for genetically engineered foods has passed the House of Representatives and now heads to President Obama’s desk.

On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure aimed at creating a federal standard for labeling genetically engineered or modified foods. Genetically modified or engineered seeds are engineered to have certain traits, such as resistance to herbicides. The majority of the United States’ corn and soybean crops are now GE, including a large portion that is used for animal feed...

Breaking: Renowned Holistic Doctor Found Stabbed to Death in Her Palo Alto Home

It is with heavy hearts that we announce yet another death in our tragic unintended series of holistic doctor deaths, Jenny Shi. In one short year, there have been over 50 deaths.

A well known holistic doctor/acupuncturist’s body was recently found inside her upscale Creekside Drive home, Palo Alto Police confirmed on Tuesday. Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office found the cause of death to be multiple stab wounds on the autopsy, officials said.

“Police department officials said they have no significant leads but noted there is no major threat to the community” (ya right- just a killer on the loose- why do they always say that?).

“In a city that averages fewer than one homicide a year, the gruesome crime in one of its quiet neighborhoods has left residents shaken.”

“It’s a real family-oriented, pleasant neighborhood,” said Robert Adams, who has lived in the area two years. “Homicides are not normal.”

The Reasons Why The Globalists Are Destined To Lose

By Brandon Smith

Under the surface of almost every sociopolitical and economic event in the world there burns an ever-raging, but often unseen, war. This war, for now, is fought with fiction and with truth, with journalistic combat and with quiet individual deeds. It is defined by two sides which could not be more philosophically or spiritually separate.

On one side is a pervasive network of corporate moguls and elites, banking entities, international financial consortiums, think tanks and political puppets. They work tirelessly to reshape public psychology and society as a whole into something they sometimes call the “New World Order;” a completely and scientifically centralized planet in which they control every aspect of government, trade, life and even moral compass. I often refer to them simply as the “Globalists,” which is how they at times refer to themselves.

Extended Blackouts: Power Grid Completely Vulnerable to Sabotage: “America Could Go Dark”

The 21st Century is run off of electricity, and in the United States, that electric grid is woefully out of date – and that has left the country quite vulnerable.

The Trumpster is right: Ruth Bader Ginsburg's 'mind is shot' because she was brain damaged by chemotherapy in 2009... (and hasn't been able to think straight since)

Three days ago, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg went on a discombobulated verbal rampage against Donald Trump, calling him a "faker" and claiming that if he were elected president, "then everything is up for grabs."

She then went on to declare that everybody should "move to New Zealand" where, apparently, they can all wear their liberal tin foil hats together while America finally builds a wall to keep them all out.

But what almost nobody seems to remember about all this is that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was brain damaged by chemotherapy in 2009. As this NY Daily News story explains, she underwent chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer that year.

Des Moines Register: Is it GMO? "Smart labels" aren't enough

And we should have the right to know when a food product contains genetically engineered (GE) ingredients, especially as they carry greater and greater residues of this probable cancer causing chemical. Some states such as Vermont, Connecticut and Maine have voted to mandate this labeling. But Congress is trying to preempt these states from giving their citizens what they have asked for.

The latest ploy is so-called “smart labels.” This is the most recent attempt by big agribusiness, the giant food processors and members of Congress who submit to their lobbying pressure to keep customers in the dark about what’s in our food. Instead of a simple declaration in plain language on the product, a smart label will require scanning each item with a smart phone. Besides the unbelievable time and inconvenience involved, many Americans don’t have smart phones and can’t afford them. More than half of rural Americans don’t have smart phones, let alone the network coverage required to access the information.

It’s Official: Robots Are Now Injuring And Killing Humans

By Nicholas West

Even as robotics experts, universities and tech luminaries sound the alarm about the potential for a future filled with killer robots, this technology evidently already has arrived … minus the stringent ethics.

There can be no debate about the use of killer robots in the military. We are in the middle of an admitted global drone arms race in which there are mass civilian casualties occurring under a specious U.S. legal framework that has thus far not even excluded its own citizens from being targeted for assassination. There is also a host of ground- and sea-based systems that are equally lethal and continue to be tested in massive joint military exercises.

Then there is the artificial intelligence contained in autonomous vehicles and security robots...

Combining Childhood Vaccines AT ONE VISIT IS NOT SAFE

Although health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claim that childhood vaccines are safe and recommend combining multiple vaccines during one visit, a review of data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows a dose-dependent association between the number of vaccines administered simultaneously and the likelihood of hospitalization or death for an adverse reaction. Additionally, younger age at the time of the adverse reaction is associated with a higher risk of hospitalization or death.

HORROR: Big Pharma developing baby vaccines for PREGNANT women

Vaccine industries have their sights set on a new market that they hope will someday be as massive as that created by the just-shy-of-obligatory childhood vaccine schedule: pregnant women.

The industry is working with the FDA to create new rules to test and develop vaccines designed to be given to pregnant women, in order to pass antibodies on to their unborn infants. The fact that this protection would only be short-term is not viewed as a problem.

Indeed, the industry is elated at the possibility to start vaccinating – via their mothers – babies too young to receive traditional vaccines.

We Now Know What Caused the Curiosity Rover to Glitch Out

Earlier this month, NASA approved a 2-year extension on the rover’s original mission that would have the rover operating straight through 2018 at least. Curiosity has been a remarkably tough little robot—especially considering that it’s already gone a full five years without a tune-up, all while rolling over some harsh terrain.

In that span, it’s undergone a broken arm, got stuck on a hill, punched a hole almost straight through its wheels, and lost the ability to focus in one of its cameras. Each time, NASA has managed to get around the problem without being able to actually physically fix the problem. Hopefully, they can keep patching Curiosity up from afar through its new, longer mission.

Artificial sweeteners really ARE bad for you: They make you crave real sugar even more

In experiments, fruit flies given food laced with a low-calorie sweetener ate 30 per cent more food than others.

Plus, their taste buds reacted more strongly than usual to real sugar.

Further experiments showed the problem to lie in their brains as they expected sweet-tasting food to be high in calories.

When the artificial sweetener didn’t provide the expected energy boost, the body told the brain more food was needed.

Lead researcher Greg Neely, from the University of Sydney, said: ‘After chronic exposure to a diet that contained the artificial sweetener, we saw that animals began eating a lot more.

Breaking: Norway Becomes First Nation In The World To Ban Deforestation

Waking Times Media

Did you know? Every year, an estimated 55 billion tons of fossil energy, minerals, metals, and bio mass is extracted from the Earth. As a result, humans are using up 50% more natural resources than the planet can comfortably provide. Scientists even speculate that within 100 years, the world’s rain forests could completely vanish.

This spells trouble for future generations, which is why Norway recently banned the practice of deforestation – the first in the world to do so.

In the icy depths of our solar system a tiny new rocky planet has been discovered orbiting up to 120 times further out from the sun than the Earth.

The new dwarf planet, which has not yet been officially named, has a width just half the length of Britain and its orbit swings up to twice as far out as Pluto.

You might be surprised at the number of senior advisors, chiefs of staff, judges, commissioners and others employed at agencies like the Department of Justice (DoJ), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who all have one thing in common: they used to hold executive-level positions at multinational corporations like Monsanto.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently came out with a stronger warning against a popular class of drugs called fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Unfortunately, this warning is too late for patients already suffering from permanent side effects caused by this dangerous category of antibiotics.

Sold under the brand names Levaquin, Cipro and Avelox, fluoroquinolone antibiotics are taken by an estimated 26 million Americans each year. The new FDA directive will force manufacturers to provide a stronger warning regarding their use. Keep in mind, when the FDA issues a warning, you know the drug is really toxic and dangerous.

Energy limits: Why we see rising wealth disparity and low prices

We can think of the situation as follows: An economy that keeps growing is (in energy terms) an out-of-balance system. Rising debt levels help maintain this out-of-balance condition by providing ever-higher commodity prices. These higher prices encourage greater extraction of energy products, even when the cost of extraction is rising because of diminishing returns. Even if extraction costs keep rising, the situation of ever-rising commodity prices cannot go on endlessly. At some point, prices become too high for workers to afford. Demand tends to fall at some point because workers at the bottom of the hierarchy find themselves “priced out” of buying goods such as houses and cars that would help maintain commodity demand.

What causes debt levels to stop rising? One reason why debt levels stop rising is that debt reaches absurd levels, making it difficult to repay debt with interest. Several examples of absurd debt levels are given in Slide 21. An additional example is excessive use of student loans. If incomes after student loans are not high enough, student debt may create a huge burden, preventing former students from buying homes and cars and starting families. The problem is that incomes after the educational experience are not sufficiently high to both pay back debt with interest and leave adequate funds for other needs.

I Was Sick For A Year After An Oil Spill. Five Years Later, Pipeline Accidents Are Worsening

Early in the morning on July 2, 2011, I walked down the gravel road on our Montana farm to let the goats out to graze for the day. I found an oily rainbow sheen on the Yellowstone River flowing through our hay fields and pasture, plus large clumps of crude oil sticking to trees, cattails and brush. The oily water was in our sloughs, our pond and the creek that runs along the eastern edge of the farm. I checked the local news on my phone and found that an Exxon oil pipeline had ruptured underneath the Yellowstone River upstream. More than 300 people upstream from us were evacuated, but no one had thought to notify those of us further from the spill. The smell of hydrocarbons was overwhelming.

Even With the Dallas Murders — Police Safer Now Than They Have Been in Decades

No matter what politicians and police unions would have you believe, police are safer now than they have been in decades — the number of targeted killings of law enforcement continues to decline each year.

Set aside whatever bias you might harbor on the issue of police violence and violence against police — it’s time to examine the facts.

Statistics prove, even if politicians like former congressman Joe Walsh refuse to face facts, the ‘war on cops’ is pure fiction

But politicians would prefer you not know the truth since that wouldn’t further their preferred narrative of misguided activists upset over police killing civilians — and would prevent effective reform through demilitarization or other means, instead of an escalation in police authoritarianism.

Wikipedia defines dual-use this way: “In politics and diplomacy, dual-use is technology that can be used for both peaceful and military aims. More generally speaking, dual-use can also refer to any technology which can satisfy more than one goal at any given time.”

Nurse suspended from job, facing disciplinary action for refusing to administer children expired vaccines

A nurse from northern Morocco recently refused to administer a large amount of vaccines to children at the Rural Health Center in Al Hoceima. The nurse stopped administering the injections because she was concerned that the lots had expired and would cause further medical complications for the children. In fact, the vaccines in question had been stored in an unsuitable environment. The vaccines were not handled properly, and over heated to 18 degrees Celsius, which is 10 degrees above the legal limit. This temperature change most likely rendered the vaccines even more dangerous than what they already were. This nurse did the right thing and kept the injections out of the children.

But, instead of being praised for preventing medical complications, this nurse was suspended from her job. The nurse, Azzahra Al Fiafi, is also being required to report to a disciplinary committee where she may face punishment.

Seventh grade boys, girls could be forcibly injected with HPV vaccine if they wish to remain in public school

In a highly controversial, unprecedented motion, members of the Allegheny County Health Department in Pittsburgh, PA, have publicly revealed that they're considering administering a countywide mandate to require all 7th grade girls and boys to receive the HPV vaccine before receiving admittance into school for the 2017–18 school year. Since the news broke last week, natural health advocates and anti-vaccine activists have been in an outrage, condemning the corporate Big Pharma-funded mandate.

A bug in fMRI software could invalidate 15 years of brain research

There could be a very serious problem with the past 15 years of research into human brain activity, with a new study suggesting that a bug in fMRI software could invalidate the results of some 40,000 papers.

That's massive, because functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is one of the best tools we have to measure brain activity, and if it’s flawed, it means all those conclusions about what our brains look like during things like exercise, gaming, love, and drug addiction are wrong.

Gardasil: The Decision We Will Always Regret

It has been three and a half years since Katie received the Gardasil vaccine and she still remains chronically ill. She was unable to attend school in 7th and 8th grades. This year, Katie decided to repeat 8th grade again rather than begin high school still sick. Katie has an IEP plan in school which reduces her daily schedule to three core classes only. Unfortunately, Katie is still too sick to attend school with any regularity. Most days, a teacher comes to our home to review the lessons she missed at school. Some days, Katie’s pain levels are too high so that she can’t even tolerate home tutoring. Although she longs to get back to dancing again, she spends most days in her room sleeping or resting and trying to cope with chronic pain. At 14 years old, Katie’s life closely resembles a sick elderly person instead of an active vibrant teenager she should be.

Monsanto, Bayer And The Push For Corporate Cannabis

The health benefits of cannabis are now well established. As I analyzed previously, cannabis is a cheap, natural alternative effective for a broad range of conditions, and the non-psychoactive form known as hemp has thousands of industrial uses. At one time, cannabis was one of the world’s most important crops. There have been no recorded deaths from cannabis overdose in the US, compared to about 30,000 deaths annually from alcohol abuse (not counting auto accidents), and 100,000 deaths annually from prescription drugs taken as directed. Yet cannabis remains a Schedule I controlled substance (“a deadly dangerous drug with no medical use and high potential for abuse”), illegal to be sold or grown in the US.

The Insanity of the Hepatitis B Vaccination

By Michelle Goldstein

The hepatitis B vaccination is one that even pro-vaccinators should question from a common sense perspective. The vaccination is now routinely given at birth for newborns, with follow-up vaccines scheduled during infancy...
