Why Asbestos Litigation Won’t Go Away: Because Asbestos Won’t Go Away

By Jeb Barnes, University of Southern California – Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences

It is tempting to dismiss asbestos as a problem of the past. The height of its consumption was in the 1970s, and asbestos litigation began over a half century ago. Many of its leading manufacturers and mining companies are long gone.

Yet asbestos litigation is back in the news.

A trial court ordered Johnson & Johnson in July, 2018, to pay US$4.69 billion for failing to warn customers that its baby powder contained asbestos, which naturally occurs in talc...

Trump Tweets In Favor of Risky and Harmful 5G and 6G Tech Despite Opposition from Security Experts, Doctors, Elected Officials, Environmentalists, Scientists, etc.

By B.N. Frank

The Telecom Industry can’t even say that 5G technology is safe. Insurance companies don’t even cover them anymore – it’s too risky.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is also being investigated for COLLUSION with the Telecom Industry regarding already passed federal 5G legislation that eliminated municipal control over the installation of risky and harmful 4G and 5G small cell tower and infrastructure technology.

Not only that – embarrassingly awful Internet of Things (IoT) technology is part of the 5G game plan. IoT has been lambasted by security experts for the past few years because of its almost 75% failure rate. Almost 75%!...

America’s first non-binary person renounces transgenderism, says, “I have always been male”

The man who holds the title as the first in the United States to ever legally identify as “neither” in terms of his official gender status has since come forward to reveal that so-called “non-binary” gender identification is a total fraud, and that he’s “always been male.”

Jamie Shupe of Oregon has essentially had a 180-degree change of heart since the time he battled the courts, and won, to embrace “transgenderism” on his official government documents. But now Shupe says that he’s “renounced all ties to transgenderism,” referring to the transgender movement as “advancing harmful gender ideologies.”

“In my thirty-plus-year marriage, I am the husband,” Shupe now says. “To my daughter, I am her father … I no longer identify as a transgender or non-binary person and … I will not be a party to advancing harmful gender ideologies that are ruining lives, causing deaths and contributing to the sterilization and mutilation of gender-confused children.”

Take that! Japanese probe Hayabusa2 fires ‘bullet’ at asteroid in bid to discover how life began

A Japanese space probe on a data-collecting mission has shot a sampling ‘bullet’ into the surface of the Ryugu asteroid, hoping to retrieve organic material that could clue scientists in to how life was first seeded on Earth.

The Hayabusa2 probe used a device called a sampler horn to fire a tantalum projectile “bullet” at the surface of Ryugu, breaking off tiny fragments that are then collected and brought home for analysis. Scientists are on the lookout for amino acids or other organic molecules among the carbon-rich material that makes up C-type asteroids like Ryugu – compounds which could have given rise to the first life on earth under the right reactive conditions.

‘Jews a Race’ Genetic Theory Comes Under Fierce Attack by DNA Expert

For years now, the findings of Ostrer and several other scientists have stood virtually unchallenged on the genetics of Jews and the story they tell of the common Middle East origins shared by many Jewish populations worldwide. Jews — and Ashkenazim in particular — are indeed one people, Ostrer’s research finds.

It’s a theory that more or less affirms the understanding that many Jews themselves hold of who they are in the world: a people who, though scattered, share an ethnic-racial bond rooted in their common ancestral descent from the indigenous Jews of ancient Judea or Palestine, as the Romans called it after they conquered the Jewish homeland.

But now, Elhaik, an Israeli molecular geneticist, has published research that he says debunks this claim. And that has set off a predictable clash.

“He’s just wrong,” said Marcus Feldman of Stanford University, a leading researcher in Jewish genetics, referring to Elhaik.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Ashkenazi are descendents of central-Asian Khazars who converted to Judaism about 800 AD. Then Khazaria fell and the Khazarian Jews migrated northward into Russia and westward into Europe.

Important Vax Rights Attorney "Witch Hunt" Update!

The nation's leading Vaccine Rights attorney, Alan Phillips, is being sued by the NC State Bar in a classic "witch hunt." Designed from the start to take Phillips' law license, the lawsuit, supported by invented facts and law, is an attack on Phillips and the entire alternative vaccine community, because Phillips has dared to publicly challenge vaccine corruption and to help people nationally exercise their legal right to refuse vaccines required at birth, daycare, school, college, employment, military, immigration, etc. This should be no surprise, as North Carolina (where Phillips is licensed) is known as "Vaccine Central" in the pharma industry.

HUGE NEUTRON STAR SENT BLASTS OF GRAVITATIONAL WAVES AND RADIATION TOWARDS EARTH, ASTRONOMERS SAY

Scientists have detected a blast of material sent 130 million light years through the universe, flung towards Earth by the merging of neutron stars.

Using an international network of radio telescopes around the world, astronomers detected a jet of material that travelled through the universe at nearly the speed of light.

As it hit the Earth, it was picked up by telescopes and shook gravitational wave detectors in August 2017. That allowed scientists to pick up an explosion that happened in a galaxy 130 million light years away.

Gene-edited Chinese CRISPR babies may have mental ‘superpowers’, researchers warn

The genetically-modified Chinese twins born resistant to HIV last year may also have mental ‘superpowers’ their creator has kept quiet – a cognitive superiority that could kick off a genetic arms race, according to new research.
Lulu and Nana, the genetically-modified Chinese twins reportedly born HIV-resistant courtesy of the CRISPR gene editing tool, may also have been born with markedly superior mental abilities linked to the same gene edit. New research has confirmed that deleting the CCR5 gene – the same modification performed on the girls’ DNA – significantly improves cognition, learning, and memory in mice and men.

Congressional Democrats Block Anti-Infanticide Bill – Not Once – But Six Times

After the Virginia Governor Ralph Northam scandal revealing his presumed support of infanticide, Democrats should be doing everything they can to separate themselves from even the suggestion they supported Northam’s comments regarding infanticide.

Unless they actually do support his comments…

And from the looks of their deliberate attempt to block a vote on a bill which would protect babies of botched abortions, it is clear they refuse to go on the record, unless they are trying to hide the unthinkable.

The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is simple – it guarantees babies who are born from a botched abortion get the same life-saving medical care any baby would get.

It also criminalizes those doctors who deliberately kill a live baby.

Interview: Ron Paul and the Never-Ending Story of Empire

Today we stand on a point in the continuum, a possible inflection point in the direction the world will go. Embrace the tired and ugly Marxist filth that destroyed hundreds of millions of people in the twentieth century (and altered the trajectory of history) or reject it whole cloth and build new institutions learning from those incalculable mistakes and horrors.

Donald Trump has revealed himself to be a two-bit, tiny man with delusions of grandeur, the blackest of hearts and bad ideas. The only thing worse than him at this point is his opposition, those that erected this edifice of corruption, filth and death.

The New Police Motto: “Shoot First, Ask Questions Later”

Being a police officer was not just a career for me- for better or worse it defined me. Period.

Both my grandfathers were New York City cops; my late father was a Lt. in the New York City Fire Department; my uncle was a New York City cop for three years before he made the right move and switched over to the New York City Fire Department where he retired as a Battalion Chief. One of my cousins is a cop in the New York City suburbs. Another cousin is a former New York State correction officer and yet another one is a firefighter in upstate New York. All have worked in some of the toughest neighborhoods and assignments in this country.

Where are the ‘empty shelves’? Max Blumenthal tours Caracas supermarket (VIDEO)

Corporate media grieve for the barren shelves and empty bellies in Venezuela, but are the alleged food shortages real? After touring a supermarket in Caracas, Max Blumenthal found plenty to buy – even craft beer.
“Grocery shelves lie empty as food becomes increasingly scarce” in Venezuela, the UK Independent weeps. The country’s shops remain open but “sparsely stocked,” The Guardian laments. Even “basic commodities” such as toothbrushes aren’t available for purchase, CNN bemoans. “Hungry” Venezuelans must choose between “torture or starvation,” Bloomberg grimly concludes. Mainstream media coverage of Venezuela gives the impression that President Nicolas Maduro is slowly starving his own people – a narrative which, as journalist Max Blumenthal found after surveying a massive supermarket in Caracas, is wildly deceptive.

Hayabusa-2: Japan spacecraft touches down on asteroid

A Japanese spacecraft has touched down on an asteroid in an attempt to collect a sample of rock from the surface.

The Hayabusa-2 probe was trying to grab the sample from a pre-chosen site on the asteroid Ryugu just before 23:00 GMT on 21 February.

The spacecraft reached asteroid Ryugu in June 2018 after a three-and-a-half-year journey from Earth.

It is expected to return to Earth with the rocky material it has cached in 2020.

Audi Just Invented Fuel Made From CO? and Water

An Audi research facility in Dresden, Germany, has managed to create the first batches of diesel fuel with a net-zero carbon footprint — made from carbon dioxide (CO2), water and renewable energy sources such as wind or solar power.

Germany’s government has welcomed the new technology, created in partnership with a greentech company called Sunfire. Johanna Wanka, Germany’s Federal Minister of Education and Research, even test drove the fuel and called it, “a crucial contribution to climate protection and the efficient use of resources,” according to an Audi press release.

Trump Legalizes Hemp In Farm Bill; FDA Looking For "Pathways" To Legalize Cannabinoid Drinks and Snacks

The world's best-selling drug costs SIX times more in the US than the UK because Big Pharma is gaming the American patent system

The best-selling drug in the world, Humira, costs patients five times more in the US than in the UK - but no one else can make a competitor.

Humira, which treats a number of diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, made its maker, Abbvie, $18 billion in 2017.

And it can continue jacking its price up because the American patent system - and the company's abuse of it - keeps any other company from making a competing drug.

Abbvie has filed 247 different patents for, effectively, the same drug, keeping a monopoly on it for 39 years.

Yellowstone Supervolcano Eruption Fears SPIKE As Geysers Become More Active

Some of Yellowstone’s geysers have been more active lately reigniting fears that the massive supervolcano will erupt. The sudden bursts of steaming hot water highlight the dramatic nature of Yellowstone while reminding us we are all at the caldera’s mercy.

While average people seemed concerned, geologists seemed excited and thrilled when Yellowstone’s steamboat geyser began erupting again in 2018. It has been erupting as often as once a week since last March, according to National Geographic, and scientists continue to say the volatile activity is not a sign of an imminent eruption. The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory reported that Steamboat has now set a record by erupting a whopping 32 times in 2018, a personal best for the geyser for a single calendar year. It’s the world’s tallest active geyser, and at the best of times, it can shoot hot water 300 feet into the air. However, it isn’t just the Steamboat Geyser that has been concerning people.

Rockefeller, Big Pharma Facing $1 Billion Lawsuit for Intentionally Infecting People With Syphilis

A federal judge recently approved a $1 billion lawsuit against Johns Hopkins University, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (BMY.N) and the Rockefeller Foundation. The lawsuit is seeking restitution for victims who were intentionally infected with syphilis during government experiments in Guatemala during the 1940s.

Hundreds of Guatemalans were reportedly infected with syphilis during the studies, which were designed to test the ability of penicillin to treat sexually transmitted diseases. The lawsuit was pending and waiting in limbo for the past four years until it was finally approved by U.S. District Judge Theodore Chuang last month. In 2015, when the lawsuit was originally filed, there were 750 victims seeking restitution, now there are only 444 plaintiffs and some remaining relatives.

The test subjects in the experiments were mainly children, orphans, patients from mental hospitals and inmates.

Opioid Maker Sought to Addict and Treat Addiction With Their New Pills

Opioid overdose deaths are rising as over 202,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses between 2002 and 2015, and more than 70,000 died in 2017.1 Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50,2 and chronic use accounts for 20 percent of the increase in male unemployment.3

Narcotic pain relievers place an enormous economic burden on society, costing an estimated $504 billion each year.4 As noted by Dr. Tom Frieden,5 former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “We know of no other medication routinely used for nonfatal conditions that kills patients so frequently.”

Despite these risks, including birth defects and risks of addiction, nearly one-third of women of childbearing age are prescribed opioids,6 and more than 14 percent of pregnant women are prescribed opioids during their pregnancy.7

Yosemite's 'firefall' phenomenon is here, but visitors say getting there is 'treacherous and unsafe'

The clouds have parted and the water is running at Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park, which means the natural phenomenon commonly known as "firefall" is finally making an appearance.

As in years past, hundreds of people are making the trek out to Yosemite to see and photograph it for themselves. But with the recent snowfall and Yosemite's new parking policy, conditions for "firefall" chasers are being called dangerous.

Photographer Ryan Fitzsimons visited the park over the weekend and called the conditions "treacherous and unsafe."

"What would have been a 10-minute walk normally turned into a two-hour trek through waist-deep snow. People were falling in the river. Our clothes were soaked by the time we got to a viewing spot."

Measles Madness: Dr. Brian Hooker’s Statement to WA Legislators

There is a problem with measles in Washington State, but it’s not low vaccination rates, it’s actually high vaccination rates with a vaccine product unable to provide lifetime immunity or vigorous passive maternal protection to infants during the first year of life.

When the measles vaccine was first introduced, most people over the age of 15 who had wild measles had lifetime immunity. In developed nations, like other communicable infections, measles was no longer dangerous except in rare circumstances because of inadequate nutrition, poor sanitation, and / or lack of healthcare. Because having the measles was a routine part of childhood, teens, adults, parents, and grandparents were immune. And because of maternal passive immunity, infants were protected.

Harvard Immunologist to Legislators: Unvaccinated Children Pose ZERO Risk to Anyone

It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide.

You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement.

I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases.

If the analysis (by Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan among others) of the latest Bill that Trump signed is accurate then indeed we can finally put the last nail in the coffin of the Trump Revolution. Because that Bill appears to expressly forbid the building of The Wall, contains a de facto amnesty and opens the door to massive future immigration abuse through 'family reunion', 'legal immigration' and other such loopholes. Nothing has been done about the H1B visa scam which is devastating the employment prospects of American STEM graduates and changing forever the demographic profile of the country.

The researchers compared a broad range of health outcomes in 666 children from home school organizations spanning four states. Thirty-nine percent of the children (ages 6-12) were unvaccinated. The study found five alarming statistics about vaccinated children. Vaccinated children were 4.2 times more likely to be diagnosed on the autism spectrum or with attention deficit and hyperactivity. Learning disabilities are 5.2 times more prevalent in vaccinated children. Eczema was 2.9 times more likely. The most shocking problem facing the vaccinated children was allergic rhinitis. The study documented a 3,000 percent increase of allergic rhinitis in vaccinated children compared to the unvaccinated group.

Young trees are 25 per cent better at soaking up carbon dioxide from the air than tropical rainforests such as the Amazon, experts claim

Young trees are better at absorbing carbon dioxide than established tropical rainforests.

Older trees have long been thought to be more efficient carbon 'sinks', but new research has found this not to be the case.

Trees less than 140-years-old are responsible for purging Earth of more than half of the atmosphere's carbon dioxide.

Transgender people taking hormone therapy may be at TWICE the risk of heart attack or stroke as cis people, study finds

To measure how testosterone and estrogen injections therapies for trans men and women, respectively, alter heart risks, the study, conducted by the Amsterdam University Medical Center, followed 2,517 trans women and 1,358 trans men from the Netherlands over the course of nearly a decade.

Trans women who received estrogen therapy had over twice as many strokes as cis women over the course of nine years, and just short of twice as many strokes as cis men.

Clots were also five times more common among trans women than cis women, and almost as much more common than they were among cis men.

Trans women also had far more heart attacks than did cis women, with rates tripling among those who had transitioned.

STATINS FAIL: Another scientific study shows statin drugs to be totally worthless at protecting against anything

For this latest indictment of statins, researchers from the New York University School of Medicine looked at data compiled on 2,867 adults, all of whom had some degree of hypertension. None of these individuals were verified to have an actual build-up of plaque in their arteries, though all were potential risk candidates for such based on their health profiles.

Just over half of the participants were assigned to take 40 milligrams daily of pravastatin, one of the more common statin drugs on the market. The other half was not given the drug, but instead took the advice of their doctors in making necessary lifestyle changes that help promote heart health and maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

At the completion of the study, it was observed that far more deaths occurred in the pravastatin group than in the lifestyle change group.

Sofas and vinyl flooring are poisoning children: Scientists find high levels of toxins that affect brain development in kids exposed to flame retardants

Fire-resistant foam used in sofas and vinyl flooring are poisoning children, a study warned.

Kids who live in public housing, where those materials are commonplace, have toxin levels in their blood and urine up to 15 times higher than those who aren't exposed.

Researchers warn this is yet another reason driving health disparities between the wealthy and poor: flame retardant chemicals (known as PBDEs) are linked to neurodevelopmental delays, obesity, endocrine and thyroid disruption, cancer and other diseases.

Dr Heather Stapleton of Duke University, who presented here findings at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference this week, warned that despite attempts to curb these chemicals, they are still pervasive.

What's more, few studies have investigated how or whether these chemicals seep into the bloodstreams of children who are exposed to them.

Thanks to New York City Health Officials, New Yorkers Can No Longer Get CBD in Their Coffee

Last week New York City's health department, long the bane of food freedom supporters, banned city restaurants from adding cannabidiol—a compound found in both cannabis and hemp that's commonly known as "CBD"—as an ingredient in food or drinks they sell.
CBD products, purported to offer health benefits to consumers, also offer quite a premium for sellers. A coffee at Bushwick's Caffeine Underground costs $2.50. A CBD-infused coffee—presumably the same coffee with a couple drops of CBD added—will set you back $6.00.

Surgeon Hospitalized for 6 Weeks After Working 180-Hour Shifts, Gets Called an ‘Emotional Female’ (2 Pics)

“From the first week I was receiving phone calls every night until about midnight, and sometimes even a 3 a.m. call here and there. I would then get Monday night off — a momentary relief of one night’s uninterrupted sleep — and then back on call again the next morning until Friday afternoon — another 80 continuous hours of being on call. I got two days off, and then the cycle started again.”

Swedes Seethe Over Documentary Claiming Their Ancestors Were Dark-Skinned

The first Swedes were dark-skinned hunters and collectors, who moved to Scandinavia from the south at the end of the Ice Age. There, they were quickly joined by another immigration wave, this time from the east, resulting in stone age Europe's most diverse population, a new documentary by Sweden's national SVT broadcaster has claimed.

"The First Swedes", a new documentary by the SVT national broadcaster, has been met with critical reaction and backlash ahead of its airing.

According to SVT, the first modern people who entered today's Sweden were dark-skinned hunter-gatherers who followed the migrating reindeer.

Mattias Jakobsson, a professor of genetics at Uppsala University and a researcher of the Atlas project, which aims to map the genome of Sweden's early population, stressed that unlike present-day Swedes, their ancestors had dark skin, as a legacy of their African origin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think it is time to abandon this "Adam and Eve" idea of a single origin for the human race and consider the possibility that the various racial groups, Caucasoid, Negroid, Capiod, Mongoloid, and Australoid, are each descended from a unique early homonid.
