U.S. Teen Pregnancies At All-Time Low; Are Vaccines Involved?

Never in my life would I have thought I’d be writing a blog about what just may be the unsuspected, but possibly planned, ‘effectiveness of vaccines in accomplishing a certain public health goal: reduced population growth’. Bill Gates, the Microsoft-wizard-turned-‘vaccine-expert’, makes vaccines an integral component of his famous “Population Control”

Undeniable evidence from numerous studies proves that fluoride causes cancer

The California Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) recently released a document called Evidence on the Carcinogenicity of Fluoride and Its Salts that highlights the many health hazards caused by the consumption of fluoride. And the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) recently submitted a compilation of its own to OEHHA, which is soon to make a final decision concerning fluoride's toxicity, providing additional evidence that fluoride causes cancer.

FAN has been working for many years to raise awareness about the toxicity of fluoride, with the eventual goal of getting it removed from public water supplies. And its most recent efforts involving OEHHA could be the straw that breaks the camel's back, so to speak, as it has the potential to unleash the truth about fluoride on a massive scale, and spark a revolt against its use.

Mumps Being Spread by and Among Vaccinated People

Recently, 41 students at Harvard University came down with mumps and, according to the Public Health department in Cambridge, every single one of those students had been vaccinated.4

Four other campuses in Boston are also starting to see cases, as have four universities in Indiana. About 13 cases of mumps have also cropped up in California.

One ridiculous explanation offered by Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious-disease specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Center for Health Security, is that the vaccine only works if the exposure to the virus is low; it can't be expected to work if there are high amounts of exposure, such as in dorms:5

"The exposure that they have to mumps is so high in these situations that it overcomes the ability of the vaccine to protect them," Adalja told Live Science. "It may be that, in these special situations, a much higher level of antibodies [against mumps] is needed to keep the virus at bay."

All Angles Covered: Is The EU Completely In The Pocket Of The Biotech Industry?

“IN LESS THAN A FORTNIGHT, EU MEMBER STATES WILL TAKE A DECISION ON THE RE-APPROVAL OF GLYPHOSATE. GENIUS [LOBBY FIRM] IS WORKING TO GET THIS TOXIC HERBICIDE RE-APPROVED BY COMMUNICATING THE INDUSTRY’S MANTRA THAT GLYPHOSATE IS SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN SAFE, SPONSORED BY MONSANTO, DOW AND SYNGENTA. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE BEING PAID BY GERMAN AUTHORITIES AND EU-FUNDED PROJECTS TO WORK ON ISSUES THAT ARE CLOSELY RELATED TO GLYPHOSATE AND THAT ARE KEY TO THE INTERESTS OF THE SAME CORPORATIONS.

VAXXED is now playing in Los Angeles

The explosive new documentary exposing the true story of CDC scientist and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson is now playing at select theaters in Los Angeles, the country's second-largest media market (see here and here).

In the film, VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe (see the trailer here), Dr. Thompson discusses his role in fabricating scientific data at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention so that he and others could hide established links between vaccines and autism – "links that the entire lying media complex denies exist at all," writes Natural News editor and author of the upcoming book Food Forensics Mike Adams, because "the entire mainstream media is largely funded by pharmaceutical interests."

China Plans to become GMO Giant

At the very highest levels it is now clear that the Chinese regime of President Xi Jinping and his Prime Minister, Li Keqiang, who is also head of the State Council, have decided to make China a world leader in the highly controversial field of Genetically Manipulated Organisms or GMO and the related highly toxic (to humans) pesticides and herbicides. This was made clear in November when the Chinese state ChemChina announced it was seeking to buy the Anglo-Swiss pharmaceutical giant, Syngenta of Basel. This is for me a personal disappointment and for the world, a major blow.

How Rhode Island Parents Are Winning Back Their Rights to Vaccine Choice

By Missy Fluegge

Families in Rhode Island are winning the war against mandatory vaccination. They have joined together with two powerful advocacy organizations whose efforts have successfully aided the of introduction five legislative bills to their state government related to vaccine choice. Their diligence offers a strong example to other parents who also question the implications of mandating so many vaccines.

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18. Different kinds of exemptions, including religious exemptions, medical exemptions, or philosophical exemptions, are available in all fifty states, but some state governments have recently increased their efforts to limit vaccine exemptions and make additional vaccines “mandatory” for school attendance...

Future Options: From Militarism And Monsanto To Gandhi And Bhaskar Save

US Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders recently tweeted: “It is no mystery why Monsanto fights against our right to know about GMOs in food – business is booming for this huge chemical company.”

Supporters of GMO are fond of telling everyone that this technology will ‘feed the world’ and those who oppose it are below the standards of common decency. But Sanders hits the nail on the head by implying commercial interests and huge profits take precedence over concern for the public good. Labelling would lead to consumers rejecting food containing GMOs.

5-7-2016 - tornados in CO, Icy roads in AZ, floods in S. CA

A series of tornadoes swept across eastern Colorado Saturday, causing several minor injuries and damaging motorhomes and buildings. Another spring storm brought deadly driving conditions to northern Arizona.

The National Weather Service said at least four tornadoes hit in Yuma County, about 100 miles east of Denver, near Colorado's borders with Nebraska and Kansas.

Meanwhile, two people died and six others were injured in a series of weather-related traffic crashes in northern Arizona.

Around 10 a.m., a vehicle rolled due to icy roads and hail on Interstate 40 near the community of Ash Fork. Two people tried to help the occupants and were struck and killed by a commercial vehicle, authorities said.

Those wrecks caused a chain reaction of at least three more crashes. Six people were taken to Flagstaff Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Disturbing Truth Behind Your Swim With The Dolphins

Throngs of Americans are heading south to the Caribbean right now, for the balmy sunshine, intoxicating evening breeze, turquoise waters … and the opportunity to swim with dolphins. But despite their popularity, swim-with-the-dolphin programs have a dark underbelly, and those on the inside are starting to speak out against them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While Sea Life Park on Oahu has captive dolphins you can swim with, the vast majority of dolphin adventures here in Hawaii involve boating out to where the dolphins naturally congregate and hopping over the side with a mask and snorkel . The rules are very strict. You have to stay by the boat. You are not allowed to approach the dolphins (if you try to touch one it is a $25,000 fine). However if the dolphin approaches you out of curiosity (and they often do) that is also fine, so long as you don't touch them.

Breaking Point: Heroin in America

The overdose death rate in 2008 was nearly four times the 1999 rate. Although this program claims that most of the heroin that enters the US comes through Mexico, it fails to mention that 90% of the world's heroin supply comes from Afghanistan. 15 years after the US invasion undid the work of the Taliban, who'd nearly obliterated heroin production prior to 2001, today 35% of Afghanistan's legal GDP is derived from raw opium.

Opiates have been used as a weapon between nations for hundreds of years. If the situation in America seems epidemic, Russia has less than half the population of the United States and more than four times the number of heroin addicts.

Mount St Helens is recharging 36 years after 'deadliest blast in US history’: Volcano’s replenished magma stores are setting off a series of earthquakes, warn scientists

Since March of this year, scientists have detected more than 130 small magnitude earthquakes beneath Mount St. Helens, with up to 40 occurring per week.

This behaviour indicates that the volcano is steadily recharging – but while it may sound alarming, the experts say they haven’t yet spotted any signs of an imminent eruption.

VICTORY! Munduruku People Win Fight Against Tapajós Dam

By Derrick Broze

The Munduruku Peoples of the Brazilian Amazon are celebrating a victory in their fight to protect their lands from planned hydroelectric plants.

The National Foundation for the Indian (FUNAI) has issued a historic ruling that will demarcate and protect a 700-square-mile territory of the Munduruku Peoples along the Tapajós River, in the Brazilian Amazon. The ruling is the latest decision in the Munduruku’s fight to protect their ancestral lands from flooding as part of planned hydroelectric dams. The demarcation and protection of the lands will now prevent the Munduruku’s land from being flooded. The final demarcation must be approved by presidential decree after 90 days before becoming law...

The Case Against Hillary Clinton

A proven catastrophe is far worse than a merely possible catastrophe; so, if Hillary Clinton turns out to be the Democratic nominee, I shall vote for Donald Trump, and then just hope that the worst things that he had said regarding public policy were lies, and that the best things that he had said regarding public policy reflected his actual beliefs.

Hillary offers not only her lies but something real (a record that’s highly relevant to the office she’s seeking) — and it’s repulsive. Trump, by contrast, offers no relevant track-record at all on public-policy matters. That’s not a virtue on his part, it’s a lack of the worst possible vice (a vile record of actual policies while in public office), for a potential U.S. President.

Given a choice between a proven psychopath, versus merely a possible (or even a likely) psychopath, I’ll definitely opt for the latter. It’s the only intelligent thing to do. Anything else would be suckerdom.

Survival Communications After a Collapse: “Pringles Can And Broadband Routers Could Create a WiFi Network”

Has anyone ever tried this, or think it will work in off-grid or survival communities?

Your best option, then, may be to set up your own community computer network – and the most sensible technology would be Wi-Fi, as the components are easily available. “You could loot a PC World for broadband routers and then hit a garage or supermarket for some Pringles cans,” says Bloch. “With those, you can probably build a reasonable network across a scorched suburb.”

Why a Pringle can? Well, it can be used to create a cantenna which would be capable of boosting a Wi-Fi signal from your computer. “Some students in Kansas made a cantenna that transmitted over 100 miles a few years ago,” says Bloch.

Eco-terrorists plot? Second wildfire in Canada near an oil & gas operation in British Columbia on the same latitude as Ft McMurray

New Alert for people in Canada, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse. Now a new large area has began burning in British Columbia on top of what is already going on in Alberta Canada.

As most people might already know, an extremely large fire has broken out across Northeast Alberta Canada near Fort McMurray. The massive fires have now forced the evacuation of over 88,000 people, with the loss of thousands of houses, and burning over 210,000 square acres in a matter of a few days time.

Now all of a sudden, massive plumes of smoke are appearing EXACTLY due West in British Columbia at another Oil + Gas pumping operation just North of Fort St. John, BC Canada.

(The new widespread fire location is upwind by 350 miles / 500km on the exact same latitude 56 43 N)

U.S. giant Dannon announces plan to remove all dairy supplies and farmers who don't comply with GMO-free standards

Some goliaths must fall (like Monsanto), for all the suffering they cause, but other giants can be transformed from the inside out, through a change in heart. That's what is happening to the top US yogurt producer Dannon.

The entire company is having a positive change of heart. A company this size has tremendous influence over the dairy industry. Their product standards strongly influence dairy farmers and whether or not cows are fed GMOs and antibiotics. If enough giants like Dannon start siding with consumer and planetary health, then the evil ones poisoning our future (like Monsanto) will slowly fade away into the dark vestiges of history.

Big Pharma knowingly created prescription drug epidemic and raked in billions: report

An investigation by the Los Angeles Times has revealed that the pharmaceutical company that sells the opiate painkiller OxyContin knew the drug was highly addictive — but pushed it anyway.

The Times obtained thousands of pages of confidential Purdue documents and learned company executives have known about the problem for decades.

“Even before OxyContin went on the market, clinical trials showed many patients weren’t getting 12 hours of relief. Since the drug’s debut in 1996, the company has been confronted with additional evidence, including complaints from doctors, reports from its own sales reps and independent research,” the Times reports.

And even more damning, “The company has held fast to the claim of 12-hour relief, in part to protect its revenue. OxyContin’s market dominance and its high price — up to hundreds of dollars per bottle — hinge on its 12-hour duration. Without that, it offers little advantage over less expensive painkillers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one thing to know about all high-level executives at drug companies; before accepting that very well paying position, they have to have their consciences surgically removed before taking the job, in order to lie well to protect corporate profits at all cost.

TWO MORE MMR VACCINE WHISTLEBLOWERS: THEY’RE SUING

“The bigger the lie, the bigger the truth it is concealing. The truth is what people are afraid to accept.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

The censored film, Vaxxed (trailer), has escaped the claws of the “protectors of all truth.” It has been showing to packed houses all over the country. It relates the specific crime of scientific fraud at the CDC. A whistleblower, William Thompson, confesses that he and his CDC colleagues lied and cheated and omitted vital data, in order to give the MMR vaccine a free pass and claim it had no connection to autism—when it did have a connection.

That’s the purpose and meaning and focus of this astonishing film.

But there is more. There are other whistleblowers shining a light on the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine. Specifically, the mumps component of the vaccine and its ineffectiveness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The medical/industrial complex lies in order to protect profits; it is just that simple.

Big Pharma Exposed for Knowingly Causing Opioid Epidemic, Ushering in a Heroin Nightmare

By Claire Bernish

Big Pharma created the legal opiate addiction epidemic and its outgrowth, rampant heroin abuse, because pharmaceutical corporations’ own addiction to profit arguably trumps any concern it may have had for patients. Though the accusation may seem harsh, the evidence has never been more apparent thanks to an investigation by the Los Angeles Times — which presents a scathing condemnation of the company behind the notorious painkiller, OxyContin.

Two decades ago, Purdue Pharma began marketing OxyContin — a chemical cousin to heroin — with the claim its 12-hour “smooth and sustained” dosing would revolutionize the treatment of pain. However, the claim is not only problematic in that its duration is often hours less than promised — leading patients to experience symptoms of withdrawal — but Purdue knew that before the painkiller ever hit the market...

8 Things You Can Do Now to Promote Medical Self-Care

By Gaye Levy

Something not frequently addressed by the survival and prepping community is the importance of good health and medical self-care. What I am referring to is individual responsibility for our own physical and mental wellness.

Why is this important? If there were to be a major disruptive event, whether local, regional or global in nature, you will need the stamina to survive adverse and even austere conditions, perhaps with minimal food, shelter, and water. Health care facilities may be scarce, if they exist at all.

Think about it. As much as we prep and do our best to store a year’s worth of food and supplies, how much attention do we actually pay to taking care of ourselves and staying informed of medical issues and topics?...

Massive Earthquake Looming As Pressure Builds On San Andreas Fault: “Wound Very, Very Tight”

Scientists have issued a dire warning that Southern California and the Los Angeles area could be in the path of a major earthquake of 7.0 magnitude or greater.

Southern California’s section of the San Andreas fault is “locked, loaded and ready to roll,” a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach.
[…]

The devastating potential of the fault became clear with a 1857 temblor, which had an estimated magnitude of 7.9… The quake was so powerful that the soil liquefied, causing trees as far away as Stockton to sink. Trees were also uprooted west of Fort Tejon. The shaking lasted 1 to 3 minutes.

I'm going to excerpt the seven points entirely from Trump's web site:

San Andreas Fault is "Ready to Go" According to Experts

For decades Californians have been warned repeatedly that the “big one” is coming. Someday a massive earthquake is going rip through the San Andreas Fault, possibly causing thousands of casualties and billions of dollars in damage. So far nothing that serious has occurred in recent memory. With the exception of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the state has been largely spared from any serious tectonic disaster.

But according to some experts we may not have to wait much longer, especially in regards to the southern portion of the San Andreas fault near San Diego and Los Angeles. That’s because it’s been so long since this fault has had an earthquake. The pressure is building there. The fault typically has a major earthquake every 100 years or so, but this particular portion hasn’t experienced a major quake since 1857, which was a magnitude 7.9.

TTIP - American Economic Imperialism Exposed

These so-called “free trade agreements” are not trade agreements. The purpose of the “partnerships,” which were drafted by global corporations, is to make corporations immune to the laws of sovereign countries in which they do business. Any country’s sovereign law whether social, environmental, food safety, labor protections—any law or regulation—that impacts a corporation’s profits is labeled a “restraint on trade.” The “partnerships” permit corporations to file a suit that overturns the law or regulation and also awards the corporation damages paid by the taxpayers of the country that tried to protect its environment or the safety of its food and workers.
