After Steinle verdict, rep unveils bill to imprison officials who shelter illegal immigrants

There is already a law on the books. In the case of a death, the penalty is life. Indict SF officials and put them on trial for a life sentence!
Try enforcing this law. Governmental officials can be indicted now for harboring illegal aliens.

EXCLUSIVE – A Republican congressman plans to introduce a bill Monday that would threaten huge fines and prison time for elected officials accused of sheltering illegal immigrant criminals from deportation, in the wake of the not-guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial.

Your 'gluten sensitivity' might not have anything to do with gluten

It turns out there's a very good reason why people like Allen, who test negative for celiac disease, report feeling better after avoiding gluten. And it's not because they are sensitive to gluten. A new study published in the journal Gastroenterology suggests another culprit that travels along with gluten in wheat, rye, and barley — fructan — may be causing their digestive problems.

Planned Parenthood Is in Deep Trouble With the Law. This Could Be a Turning Point.

Just as news of the FBI inquiry broke, the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals declined to revisit its ruling that the state of Arkansas can redirect Medicaid funds away from abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, which the state is completely justified in doing considering the ongoing baby parts scandal.

These two major breakthroughs would have been inconceivable under the Obama administration, which repeatedly abused federal power to prop up the abortion industry.

President Barack Obama’s aggressively pro-abortion administration put the “bully” in “bully pulpit.” Under Obama, the Justice Department became a tool to harass and intimidate pro-life advocates, labeling them domestic terrorists alongside groups like the Ku Klux Klan.

Instead of investigating Planned Parenthood for the shocking, potentially illegal practices exposed in the videos, pro-abortion Attorney General Loretta Lynch decided to investigate the whistleblowers.

Tehran Acquires Breakthrough Technology to Manufacture Nuclear Batteries

Iran has mastered a technology to build nuclear batteries, becoming the fifth country worldwide to acquire the skill after Russia, France, UK and the United States, a senior advisor to the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Asghar Zare'an, said Sunday, cited by Iran Daily.

The batteries can be used in the health sector and other industrial fields, for example, to produce cardiac pacemakers or advanced laptops.

Eruption warning: Antarctic volcano's ash could ‘encircle globe’ sparking health problems

The eruption on Deception Island could also disrupt air traffic in South America, Australia and Africa and globally as air currents spread deadly ash.

A scientific report said: “Ash emitted during explosive volcanic eruptions may disperse over vast areas of the globe posing a threat to human health and infrastructures and causing significant disruption to air traffic.”

Experts have warned that ash from an eruption could quickly circulate around the world posing threats to countries all over the Southern Hemisphere and beyond.

Israel cancels Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit as Germany won’t guarantee their return

Israel has cancelled a Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit in Frankfurt after the German government refused to guarantee it would block Palestinian and Jordanian authorities from claiming ownership of the ancient manuscripts.

The Frankfurt Bible Museum announced the September 2019 exhibit was cancelled this week. Israel wanted the German government to guarantee the scrolls would be returned to Israel in a legally binding agreement before going ahead with the exhibition.

Germany’s foreign ministry and commissioner for cultural affairs were unable to do so, as the ownership of the scrolls is not clear, Hessenschau reports. Such an agreement would have blocked Palestinians and Jordanians from claiming the scrolls as their own, according to the Jewish News Agency.

A Holistic Approach to the Healthcare Crisis

By Chris Kanthan

In 2017, America will spend more than $10,000 per person on healthcare, or 18% of our GDP. In every measure of cost – total spending, per capita spending, spending as percentage of GDP – the US is #1. However, the results are abysmal: worst healthcare and 4th highest child mortality among developed nations, 31st in the world in life expectancy and ranked as one of the fattest countries in the world (70% are overweight or obese). Why? We have a fundamentally misguided approach to health, disease and treatments...

Progress report on the US-Russian war

I am often asked if the US and Russia will go to war with each other. I always reply that they are already at war. Not a war like WWII, but a war nonetheless. This war is, at least for the time being, roughly 80% informational, 15% economic and 5% kinetic. But in political terms the outcome for the loser of this war will be no less dramatic than the outcome of WWII was for Germany: the losing country will not survive it, at least not in its present shape: either Russia will become a US colony again or the AngloZionist Empire will collapse.

At the end of the day, political regimes can only survive by the consent of those it rules. In the United States this consent is clearly in the process of being withdrawn. In Russia it has never been stronger.

Iran rocked by MASSIVE 6.0 magnitude earthquake 'near city with 800,000 people'

The earthquake, which hit at 2.32am GMT, was intially recorded at a magnitude of 6.3 but was later downgraded to 6.0.

The aftershock measuring in at a 5.0 magnitude struck around 15 minutes later, according to the USGS.

The earthquakes struck near Kerman which has a population of around 800,000.

An earthquake of 6.0 magnitude is considered a powerful and is capable of causing severe damage.

However, no reports have emerged about casualties or damage so far.

It follows a deadly quake in the region last month.

San Diego opens giant tent to house 350 homeless people to help contain a hepatitis A outbreak that has killed 20

San Diego on Friday opened the first of three industrial-sized tents to house the homeless as part of the city's efforts to contain a hepatitis outbreak stemming from the deplorable conditions people were living in on the streets.
About 20 people made their way to a bunk bed Friday in the tent that will house 350 single men and women.

Two other giant tents will open later this month - one for families and one for veterans. The tents will house a total of 700 people.

The city turned to tents to get people off the streets and contain a hepatitis A outbreak that has killed 20 people in the past year, marking the worst epidemic of its kind in the US in 20 years. The virus lives in feces.

'There's going to be a marked different in what we see on the streets today and what we see at this time next year,' said Bob McElroy of the Alpha Project, the nonprofit group that will operate the tent that opened Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is way too little, and way too late; I am very concerned that even this desperate measure by the city of San Diego, is not going to stem this outbreak significantly.

Mystery of the 230-foot-long killer whale geoglyph found in the middle of the Peru Desert

The orca geoglyph was discovered in the 1960s by a team of German archaeologists – but, for decades after, it was considered lost, according to the Bradshaw Foundation.

Few traces of it existed in the records, but, it was finally found again during efforts led by Johny Isla, of the Ica branch of Peru’s Ministry of Culture.

The 230-foot-long (70 meter) orca etching was found in the Palpa region of southern Peru.

The team first attempted to find it by scouring Google Earth, Live Science reports.

But, its location and size were not well described.
Eventually, the archaeologists set out on foot, and found it after months of searching in January 2015.

Aluminum In Vaccines May Cause Autism According To Experts in New Study

A new controversial study confirms aluminum in vaccines may cause Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and those children who suffer from it to have up 10 times more metal in their brains than what is considered a safe amount for adults. But is anyone surprised that metals cause deficiency in one’s own body?

Mercury and aluminum have long been debated by people like Robert Kennedy Jr. as ingredients in vaccines that could cause autism; and for good reason since we know that both aluminum and Mercury are neurotoxins that harm the body at high levels. But now researchers have discovered that aluminum causes the membrane to separate the brain from blood flowing to it, thus affecting its internal temperature, non-neuronal cells and inflammatory cells, Daily Mail reported.

A whole branch of science turns out to be fake

Devotees of science often assume that what is called science is real and true. It must be. Otherwise, their faith is broken. Their superficial understanding is shattered. Their “superior view” of the world is torpedoed.

Such people choose unofficial “anti-science” targets to attack. They never think of inspecting their own house for enormous fraud.

For example: psychiatry.

An open secret has been slowly bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.

Why Is There So Much Human Shit on the Streets?

There are more than 10,000 people living on the streets at any given time in our fair City by the Bay. San Francisco must be scrambling hand over foot to provide at least some semblance of a plan for their very apparent human needs. Right? Wrong. I reached out to Jennifer Friedenbach, the executive director of San Francisco’s Coalition on Homelessness over the phone, and she laid out the overarching cause of our defecation dilemma.

NASA fires up Voyager's backup thrusters for the first time in 37 YEARS in bid to extend the life of the only human-made object in interstellar space

Not only is Voyager 1 the only human-made object in interstellar space, it's also astonishingly reliable, NASA has revealed.

After 37 years, engineers this week tried to fire up a set of thrusters on the craft - and they worked perfectly.

The spacecraft, which has been flying for 40 years, relies on small devices called thrusters to orient itself so it can communicate with Earth.

These thrusters fire in tiny pulses, or 'puffs,' lasting mere milliseconds, to subtly rotate the spacecraft so that its antenna points at our planet.

Now, the Voyager team is able to use a set of four backup thrusters, dormant since 1980.

'With these thrusters that are still functional after 37 years without use, we will be able to extend the life of the Voyager 1 spacecraft by two to three years,' said Suzanne Dodd, project manager for Voyager at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California.

Imagine police knocking on your door because you posted a ‘troubling comment’ on a social media website.

Imagine a judge forcing you to be jailed, sorry I meant hospitalized, because a computer program found your comment(s) ‘troubling’.

You can stop imagining, this is really happening.

A recent TechCrunch article warns that Facebook’s “Proactive Detection” artificial intelligence (A.I.) will use pattern recognition to contact first responders. The A.I. will contact first responders, if they deem a person’s comment[s] to have troubling suicidal thoughts.

Facebook also will use AI to prioritize particularly risky or urgent user reports so they’re more quickly addressed by moderators, and tools to instantly surface local language resources and first-responder contact info.

A private corporation deciding who goes to jail? What could possibly go wrong?

Facebook’s A.I. automatically contacts law enforcement

This "Big Brotherness" of Facebook almost reeks of the old Soviet style detention in "psychiatric hospitals" for the politically incorrect.

Perhaps we now have the link between vaccination and autism': Professor reveals aluminium in jabs may cause sufferers to have up 10 times more of the metal in their brains than is safe

Aluminium in vaccines may cause autism, controversial new research suggests.
Autistic children have up to 10 times more of the metal in their brains than what is considered safe in adults, a study found.
Aluminium crosses the membrane that separates the brain from circulating blood and accumulates in cells involved in maintaining a constant internal environment, such as temperature, the research adds
Study author Professor Chris Exley from Keele University, said: 'Perhaps we now have the link between vaccination and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the link being the inclusion of an aluminium adjuvant in the vaccine.'

The researchers speculate autism sufferers may have genetic changes that cause them to accumulate aluminium which healthy people are able to remove.
The findings are controversial after the disgraced gastroenterologist Andrew Wakefield said in 1995 that the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine is linked to bowel disease and autism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like we finally have the "smoking gun" connection between autism and vaccines.

Please understand that vaccines are pushed because they are profitable for the medical/industrial complex; not because they are truly safe.

Because if vaccines were truly safe, then why did this happen?!?

Mouthwash twice a day 'puts diabetes risk 50 per cent higher'

Using mouthwash twice a day increasing a person's chances of contracting diabetes by 50 per cent, a new study has claimed.

Scientists in the US claim those using over-the-counter mouthwash twice a day run a significantly higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The author of the study, Professor Kamudi Joshipura, says mouthwash kills helpful as well as harmful bacteria, destroying those that protect against diabetes and obesity.

Prof Joshipura, a professor of epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, found the risks were heightened for all mouthwash users, regardless of sex, weight or diet.

Collecting Russian DNA? Confronting the Threat of Ethnic-Specific Bioweapons

The United States Air Force’s 59th Medical Wing’s molecular biology branch recently was revealed to have been collecting specifically Russian RNA and synovial (connective) tissue samples, prompting fears in Russia of a possible US directed ethnic-specific bioweapons program.

TeleSUR’s article, “‘Ethnic Bomb’ Feared as US Air Force Confirms Collection of Russian DNA,” would report:

Russia has raised its concerns over attempts by the U.S. military to collect DNA samples from Russian nationals, noting the potential use of such biological samples for the purpose of creating new genetic warfare weaponry.

The U.S. Air Force has sought to calm the Kremlin’s concerns, noting that the samples would only be used for so-called “research” purposes rather than for bioterrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF any element of the US government or military says something is not so, it most probably is; we have just become accustomed to their lying so completely that plausible deniability cannot possibly work for them.

And if they are not working on a biological weapon against the Russian people, what other possible motive could they have for doing this?!?

The short answer in, none whatsoever.

Controversial pesticide is causing songbirds to lose their way and suffer dramatic weight loss

The pesticides - known as neo-nicotinoids or 'neo-nics' - are meant to kill insects that eat crops.

They are used in sprays and coatings on seeds – killing sap-sucking weevils and aphids.

Increasing evidence shows they also cause harm bees' ability to forage for food and to reproduce.

Scientists who tested 198 honey samples from every continent except Antarctica discovered that 75 per cent were laced with at least one of the neonicotinoid chemicals.

The European Commission proposed a ban on three neonicotinoids on flowering crops such as oil seed rape in 2013 because of the threat to bee health. The UK had originally opposed the ban.

3M named in massive contamination scheme that allegedly caused widespread cancer

According to Minnesota’s attorney general, chemicals that were dumped by 3M Co. in the Twin Cities metro area has caused cancer and infertility rates to rise, and has also resulted in the babies with low birth weights.

In a court filing last week, Attorney General Lori Swanson alleged that the contamination resulted in $5 billion in health and environmental damage which, according to Swanson, 3M should be liable for. In addition, the court filing accused 3M of knowing that the groundwater was being contaminated for years, and that the company intentionally withheld important information from the Environmental Protection Agency.

“3M, in pursuit of profit, deliberately disregarded the substantial risk of injury to the people and environment of Minnesota from its continued manufacture of PFCs and its improper disposal,” the state said, referring to the dangerous chemicals that have polluted the groundwater.

Those Living Bacteria "From Space" Found on the ISS Aren't What You Think

As National Geographic and others have pointed out, it’s much more likely that the bacteria came from us filthy humans.

Even in this latest report, TASS notes that in a previous mission, Russian scientists brought bacteria aboard the ISS via some tablet PCs. So it’s quite possible that these newly discovered bacteria aren’t actually from some random part of space — they’re probably bacteria that have hitched a ride on humans. Of course, NASA understands this risk of contamination, which is why they sterilize all their probes.

Bacteria can be hardy little things, even in space. Scientists have sent Bacillus pumilus SAFR-032 and Bacillus subtilis 168 into space for experimental purposes, and both have survived. It’s possible that these bacteria found on the ISS — though we don’t know what strain — survived the long journey from Earth and decided to make the ISS their new home.

Super-high Levels of Toxic Aluminum Found in Brains of Autistic Patients

“What does this mean for today’s generation of children who receive 5,000 mcg of aluminum in vaccines by the age of 18 months and up to 5,250 additional mcg if all recommended boosters, HPV and meningitis vaccines are administered.”

This might well constitute a “clue,” pointing to where at least some of that highly toxic aluminum in autistic brains comes from.

As “the experts” deny this vaccine-aluminum-autism connection, I would suggest they back up their “science” by stepping forward themselves and taking ALL the vaccines on the official schedule, including boosters, in order to catch up with their shots. They should do this in the limited time recommended by public health agencies.

After all, if aluminum (and other toxic substances) in vaccines aren’t a problem, what do they have to lose?

The Catch-22 that keeps many vets from getting help

Joseph Heller would have had a field day describing what happens to too many American soldiers these days. While on active duty in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, they begin suffering mental health problems -- often they reflect the early onset of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Because of their illness, they act out, get in trouble with their chain of command, and are forced to leave with less than honorable discharges.

But when they return home, their less than honorable discharges prevent them from being considered veterans, so they can't get help from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to address their PTSD.
It's a classic Catch-22.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please share this article with anyone even thinking about enlisting.

And please remind them; all wars are economic in nature, and are not fought for honor, glory, or "The American Way of Life", whatever that is.

Wars are all about resources, and their acquisition, period, end of discussion.

Iraq was all about the oil, and insuring that it was only sold in US dollars.

Afghanistan was, and is, about pipelines, natural resources, and the opium.

The coming war against Iran is, again, about the oil, and making sure it is sold in US dollars.

2,000-year-old Sundial Changes Perception of Ancient Rome

One day around 2,000 years ago, a Roman named Marcus Novius Tubula ordered an elaborate sundial, University of Cambridge researchers report after finding it intact two millennia later during excavation in the Roman town of Interamna Lirenas, near Monte Cassino, in Italy.

Carved in limestone and 54 centimeters in width, the sundial's concave face was engraved with 11 hour lines intersecting three day curves. Thus the device could give indicate the season: the winter solstice, equinox and summer solstice, the archaeologists say. Its gnomon (pointer) was mostly gone, but a bit of it survived under lead fixing.

The sundial is one of less than 100 of its type that have survived, say archaeologists.
