‘US interventions a reason for migrant crisis, US should share burden’ – Austrian Chancellor

The Austrian Chancellor hit the nail on the head. The US government and the American people are solely responsible for the mass of Muslim refugees invading Europe and the US.
You were elected to stop the wars Trump not continue the atrocities that drive these people out of their homes and countries. Stop the damn illegal,unconstitutional wars!

The US shares responsibility for the ongoing migrant crisis, according to Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern. Speaking on the sidelines of an EU summit in Malta, he stated that American “interventions” are in part to blame for the refugee flows.

“There is no doubt that America shares responsibility for the refugee flows by the way how it intervened militarily,” Kern said on Saturday, as cited by AFP.

“It’s unacceptable for the international community if America wants to avoid responsibility.

The 8 Most Dangerous Medicines on Earth... are you taking any of these?

Many "Western" medicines are made in laboratories using chemicals and are highly experimental, and worse yet, they're never tested on humans, except when they're actually prescribed, applied, or injected into them. Humans are the ultimate guinea pigs in America, while Big Pharma pockets trillions in profit. How did this all come to be? Simple answer: After WWII, Nazi scientists were hired fresh out of prison to work on pharmaceuticals, vaccines, chemotherapy, and chemical food additives, in order to fuel the most insidious business on earth–allopathic medicine. It's no conspiracy theory either.

Prescription euthanasia: Elderly being killed off by antipsychotic drugs… is it on purpose?

Older individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease are often prescribed antipsychotic drugs. This controversial practice has been frowned upon for many years. New research has now found that the use of these drugs in Alzheimer’s patients substantially increases their risk of mortality — which begs the question: is this risky practice being conducted with malicious intentions?

TRUMP, RFK JR, AND VACCINES

Regular readers of this site are aware that from time to time I have blogged about the controversy over vaccines and autism, and more recently, about vaccines being used covertly, under the guise of mandatory vaccination laws, to inject people with a whole host of things from nanobots to new types of vaccines designed to vaccinate others, against their will and even without their knowledge, through such a simple thing as a human sneeze, which is the latest gizmo being cooked up in Big Corporation Land. I have also blogged about studies of the vaccine-autism link that were based on the testimony of mothers who have had their children vaccinated who then came down with symptoms on the autism spectrum. The paper was first approved for publication, then withdrawn with the usual Big Corporation pressure was exerted.The paper was withdrawn for being based on "anecdotal" and not "scientific" evidence.

Virginia House Passes Bill to Expand Health Freedom

By Mike Maharrey

A Virginia bill that would help facilitate healthcare freedom passed the state House yesterday.

Del. R. Steven Landes (R-Verona) introduced House Bill 2053 (HB2053) on Jan. 10. The legislation specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code...

Dept. Of Transportation Warns: "Tesla's Autopilot Requires The Continual And Full Attention Of The Driver"

The National Highway Traffic Safety Admnnistration, under the U.S. Department of Transportation, has issued its official report on the crash of a Tesla so-called "Auto-pilot" vehicle which crashed into a big rig last summer. While the corporate media has tried to merely blame driver error, the very first line of the actual NHTSA report admits that the vehicle may not functioned as designed: "Problem Description: The Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) or Autopilot systems may not function as designed, increasing the risk of a crash." The NHTSA continually emphasizes throughout the report that "Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, such as Tesla's Autopilot, require the continual and full attention of the driver to monitor the traffic environment and be prepared to take action to avoid crashes." They conclude noting "The closing of this investigation does not constitute a finding by NHTSA that no safety-related defect exists."

Bill Gates, soon-to-be trillionaire, exposed

In 2000, Bill and his wife Melinda set up the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which, so far, has given away $28B billion in the fight against global poverty. The foundation was expanded exponentially with the help of fellow billionaire elites including Warren Buffet (who significantly funded the baby-murdering Planned Parenthood organization) and David Rockefeller (a Bilderberg group attendee and a key member of the globalist cabal). Of course, such affiliation with those two other elites (both of whom have well-documented criminal histories) alone should immediately trigger warning alarms to the discerning individual

The billionaire who lives in the comfort of a 66,000 square foot mansion — which cost over $63M to build — nested in the picturesque backcountry of Medina, Washington also laughably offered some “advice” for the world’s poorest in an absolutely bizarre blog post, telling people that raising chickens is the key to prosperity.

GMO Apples Hit American Stores This Month: How and Why to Avoid Them

If a food company invented a new version of a typical food and then packaged it in a box without the ingredients etc. listed on the packaging, there would be quite the outcry.

So why is it that Okanagan Speciality Fruits is allowed to market a new variety of GMO apples without telling people the reason they're so "special" is that they are genetically modified?

Here's the scoop on how - and why - you should avoid these frankenfruits.

Stunning scientific breakthrough allows DNA “rebirth” of animals from long-dead, partially decomposed tissue samples

To begin their study, the research team tested their newly developed technique on 10 fluid-preserved snake specimens. Almost no genetic material from these snakes could be found in public collections. The scientists then extracted a tissue sample from each snake’s liver, and exposed the tissue to heat. After heating, an enzyme was applied to the sample to digest the tissue. From there, DNA was extracted with ease.

With this new method, scientists were able to extract and sequence DNA from each of the preserved snakes. Some of the snake specimens were more than 100 years old, and one was especially exciting: it was a Günther’s mountain snake from India, which had never before been sequenced.

POISON FRUIT

The Galindos wish they could have protected their daughter from whatever originally caused her troubles, which began in infancy, when she screamed incessantly. As she got older, Eva was slow to talk and make friends. Nine years ago, when her pediatrician diagnosed her with autism, he told the Galindos that nobody really knew why children developed such problems. And in some ways, that is still true; both the causes of these neurodevelopmental conditions and their increase among American children remain mysterious.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The executives who signed off on the development of this poisonous chemical should be tried for promoting an environmental hazard to children, and jailed for the rest of their lives, and not in a club Fed.

That is the only way, in the US, that safety standards will be rigorously imposed, and this kind of developmental danger to children stopped.

Moral responsibility for the consequences of the actions of corporations must be enforced; otherwise, these chemical companies will kill us all for profit.

Middle-aged adults who take more than 5 pills a day are 3 times more likely to become frail - increasing their risk of falls, disability and even death

Taking more than five prescription tablets a day causes pensioners to become frail, new research suggests.

While consuming more than 10 doubles an elderly person's risk of falls, disability and even death within three years, scientists claim.

Mixing numerous medications causes pensioners to become prematurely weak as they affect the body's ability to function.

Experts say the practice, known as polypharmacy, actually causes all of the drugs to negatively interact with each other.

Laundry pods are poisoning our kids: 30-fold increase in children burned by the capsules since 2012 - because new designs look tastier and tastier

Researchers found the detergent pacs have caused a 30-fold increase among preschool-aged kids when it comes to chemical eye burns.

The pods were first introduced to the market in 2012, and wide-spread use was adopted due to their being marketed as a more convenient way to do laundry.

But scientists say that the products' packaging and candy-like appearance have resulted in scores of children playing with, and even ingesting, them.

Cold and flu remedies TRIPLE your risk of having a heart attack, study finds

Researchers analysed claims data from nearly 10,000 patients who were hospitalised for a heart attack over a seven-year period in Taiwan.

The goal was to investigate whether non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) had an effect on the risk of a heart attack.

While acute respiratory infections, such as a cold or flu, were also monitored in the study published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The results showed that using oral painkillers during a respiratory infection saw a 3.4-fold heart attack risk.

While that jumped to 7.2 when patients were given the drugs via a hospital drip, according to the researchers.

Conversely, when patients had an infection but didn't take NSAIDs their risk was 2.7 times greater than a healthy person.

However, that fell to 1.5 when they took the drugs while infection-free.

Volcanoes erupted on Mars for 2 BILLION years: Meteorite study confirms Mars had the longest-lived volcanoes in the solar system

A meteorite found in Africa has revealed information about volcanic activity on Mars.

Researchers have determined that Mars was home to erupting volcanoes for 2 billion years - nearly half of the planet's life.

The red planet was previously known to have the largest volcanoes in the solar system, but the new discovery suggests it also had the longest-lived.

Bernie Sanders and Rand Paul in a Steel Cage Death Match

Prompted by Senator Paul, Price said that during his days working in a hospital and later when he was in private practice, everyone who turned up was treated even if they could not pay. What Paul and Price neglected to mention is that you’ll still get a bill and God help you if you can’t pay. If you have assets—say, a house, you may have to kiss your house goodbye.

Neither Price nor Paul once uttered the dread word “bankruptcy.” Nor did they hint that medical costs are a leading cause of personal bankruptcies in the US.

Genetically engineered cyborg dragonflies now being weaponized for surveillance missions

The DragonflEye is a genetically-modified version of a dragonfly, equipped with a man-made guidance system that taps directly into the insect’s own built-in steering mechanism using pulses of light.

A gene is inserted into the insect that adds light-sensitive proteins (opsins) to its neurons, so that the DragonflEye can respond to optical stimuli rather than the crude electrical signals used in the past to send steering commands to cyborg insects:

Columns of fire underneath ice of Lake Baikal: Mystery solved

Lake Baikal, the world's deepest freshwater lake, is known for its mysteries and legends. Many travelers and local residents can often eyewitness strange phenomena happening on the lake - mirage and fiery flashes. In ancient times, merchant convoys would disappear when traveling on the ice o the frozen lake in winter. Naturally, people would explain unusual phenomena with mysticism of the lake. The water reservoir itself would be referred to as "standing fire" or "bai gal" in the Buryat language, which explains the origin of the word 'Baikal'... A local resident, a fisherman, showed how to make the ice on the lake burn. The man pierced the ice with an ice pick and bounced back. At first, one could hear the sound of a deflating car tire. The next moment, a flame of fire appeared on the surface of the ice. The flame was about one meter high. A minute later, the flame began to fade. Several minutes afterwards, there was only a small hole left on the ice of the natural burner.

Trump to Mexico: Take care of 'bad hombres' or US might

CNN is reporting Trump offered Mexico aid not troops. My guess is carrot and stick.
Both stories are half of the truth even though both countries are denying the reports from AP and CNN. Brilliant the way it was released. After some Mexican politician threatened to unleash the cartels on the US a few days ago, I have been waiting for the Hammer of Don to drop!

Japan's 'space junk' collector is in trouble after scientists say it may have failed to release its giant 'fishing net'

Scientists at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) are testing an electrodynamic 'tether' - created with the help of a fishing net company - to slow the junk down and bring it into a lower orbit.

The hope was that the clutter - built up after more than five decades of human space exploration - would enter the Earth's atmosphere and burn up harmlessly long before it has a chance to crash to the planet.

About 700 metres (2,300 feet) in length, the tether was due to be extended out from a cargo ship launched in December carrying supplies for astronauts at the International Space Station.

But JAXA says it is not sure if the tether, made from thin wires of stainless steel and aluminium, successfully deployed or not.

Say goodbye to the Northern Lights: Plunging solar activity could cause auroras to DISAPPEAR from UK in the next few decades

Dr Mathew Owens, from the University of Reading, said: 'The magnetic activity of the sun ebbs and flows in predictable cycles, but there is also evidence that it is due to plummet, possibly by the largest amount for 300 years.

'If so, the Northern Lights phenomenon would become a natural show exclusive to the polar regions, due to a lack of solar wind forces that often make it visible at lower latitudes.'

At the same time, some of the natural protection against radiation offered to the Earth by the solar atmosphere and its 'wind' of particles could be lost, he said.

A reduction in the solar wind would see the heliosphere - the 'bubble' around the solar system made up of fast moving particles emitted by the sun - shrink significantly.

Physicists inadvertently discover a way to mass-produce graphene

Lead inventor Professor Chris Sorensen described the discovery to Digital Trends as “serendipity” striking. “We got lucky,” he said — noting that the discovery was a fortunate byproduct of work being done into carbon soot aerosol gels. Nonetheless, it is a particularly exciting step forward,

“We’ve looked at what other people have achieved with synthetic methods and we feel our method has a number of advantages,” Professor Sorensen said. “The biggest of those is simplicity. All we have to do is to fill a chamber with some oxygen and hydrocarbon, and then use a detonation. We don’t need a catalyst, there are no nasty chemicals, and it looks scaleable. We think it’s a very nice process.”

Existence of 'Lost Continent' Under Indian Ocean Confirmed --"Remnant of the Primeval SuperContinent Gondwana"

Scientists have confirmed the existence of a "lost continent" under the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius (above) that was left-over by the break-up of the supercontinent, Gondwana, which started about 200 million years ago. The piece of crust, which was subsequently covered by young lava during volcanic eruptions on the island, seems to be a tiny piece of ancient continent, which broke off from the island of Madagascar, when Africa, India, Australia and Antarctica split up and formed the Indian Ocean.

Dr Stephanie Seneff - Vaccines, Glyphosate and Autism

Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996. The percentage of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses jumped from 7% to 13% in just 9 years; food allergies skyrocketed, and disorders such as autism, diabetes, reproductive disorders, digestive problems, and others are on the rise. Dr. Stephanie Seneff explains how glyphosate (Round Up) causes nutritional deficiencies leading to diseases such as autism, alzheimer's, crone's, parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, muscle wasting, irritable bowel disease and leaky gut syndrome.

Autism Explained: Synergistic Poisoning from Aluminum and Glyphosate - Stephanie Seneff

The number of children diagnosed with autism in America has risen alarmingly over the past fifteen years, in exact step with the rise in the use of glyphosate (Roundup) on corn and soy crops. Coincidence? I think not. In parallel, children in the United States have been burdened with an increased aluminum load from the world's most comprehensive vaccination schedule. Glyphosate has a number of known biological effects that align with the known pathologies associated with autism. Glyphosate also likely promotes aluminum uptake into the tissues. Aluminum, a well-documented neurotoxin, is the established cause of dialysis dementia. I propose that aluminum accumulation in the brain, synergistically promoted by glyphosate, is the principal cause of autism in the US.

Glyphosate in Vaccines as Well as Food?

A report published last week found glyphosate in a number of childhood vaccines. Now more study is needed to learn more about the presence of other weedkiller ingredients in both our vaccines and our food.

Keep in mind that absolutely no studies have been done on the toxicity of weedkiller when injected into children. The US Environmental Protection Agency analyzed Monsanto’s self-serving safety studies on the potential toxicity when glyphosate is ingested, but not when it is injected. EPA documents studying how the body metabolizes glyphosate (that is, how it moves through the body) found that glyphosate shows up in bone marrow thirty minutes after injection.

Portland activist accused of sex crimes

Update

Portland police on Monday filed new criminal accusations against an activist involved in organizing recent downtown protests.

Micah Rhodes, 23, faces four felony accusations of second-degree sex abuse. The allegations were filed Monday after officers arrested him during an anti-police protest last week. He was among 12 adults picked up for traffic citations for improper position on a highway and other offenses.

"All four charges relate to one juvenile victim," Simpson said. "Our detectives started looking into this, after his arrest Wednesday. They found information about a prior incident, and from there, conducted their investigation."

Court records show a Portland police detective received information that Rhodes met a 17-year-old male through a dating phone app in 2015, and the two had sex on multiple occasions.

‘Unnecessary Risk’: FDA Says Homeopathic Teething Product Is Toxic, Company Won’t Recall

After the FDA issued a warning about a homeopathic medication for teething infants, the manufacturer refused to recall the product, saying that they are confident that the product is safe.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said on Friday that the levels of belladonna, a toxic substance also known as deadly nightshade, found in the teething tablets were sometimes “far exceeding the amount claimed on the label.”

Healing With Medical Marijuana

Bottom line to marijuana—it mitigates human suffering. It is the best and safest pain medication. It is cheap if you grow it yourself. It is better than any pharmaceutical on the market. It treats cancer. It is a wonder drug and can even be used by healthy people to keep their stress down.

Everyone who is against marijuana is against freedom. They are against God and they are against the will of the people who clearly want to be able to use marijuana when they want to or need to. Wherever there is freedom marijuana will be legal and unregulated.

Wherever there is marijuana there will be reductions in suffering, pain, and reductions in side effects from pharmaceutical drugs that kill people.

Physicists might have made a mistake in claiming to have turned hydrogen into a metal, experts say

The scientists who claim to have crushed hydrogen into a metal might have made one important mistake, according to experts.

Two physicists claimed that they had finally succeeded in a feat that scientists have been attempting for almost a hundred years – crushing hydrogen and turning it into metal through an “alchemical” process. Such a discovery would potentially revolutionise technology and space travel, and has been hailed as one of the biggest breakthroughs in history.

But experts have cast doubts on the claims of the two scientists, Ranga Dias and Isaac Silvera, both physicists at Harvard University. They might have mistaken something else for the important metal, a number of other scientists have said.

Substance in Crude Oil Harms Fish Hearts, Could Affect Humans

By Taylor Kubota

Research from Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station has identified a substance in oil that’s to blame for the cardiotoxicity seen in fish exposed to crude oil spills. More than a hazard for marine life exposed to oil, the contaminant this team identified is abundant in air pollution and could pose a global threat to human health...

Genetically Modified Insects Could Put Organic Farmers At Risk And Disrupt International Food Trade

By The Max Planck Institute

Genetically modified organisms for pest control could end up as contaminants in agricultural products throughout the globe.

“There’s a fly in my soup.” This statement conjures up the image of a dead fly in a bowl of soup rather than a genetically modified insect being served up with organic vegetables. However, this is not a totally unrealistic scenario as experimental releases of genetically modified insects have been approved by US regulators in 2014 very near farming areas. The question is whether fruit and vegetables exported from the USA to Europe and China can be sold under the “organic” label if genetically modified insects have developed on them...

'Doctors gave me depression pills I DIDN'T need for 20 years': Coming off his antidepressants drove Viscount Hinchingbrooke to the brink - but his story is alarmingly common

My story illustrates how an entirely normal person can suddenly find themselves on the wrong end of a diagnosis and, as a result, spend the next 20 years on a medication merry-go-round of antidepressants and sleeping pills that weren't needed in the first place.

But this isn't just my story — as I've discovered, a large number of people across the globe have been similarly afflicted.

Thanks to the internet, a once-invisible group of patients is now able to share experiences — confronting together the double injustice of being harmed, and then having that harm denied by the doctors and institutions that are supposed to help them.

Bus rider who broke his cane defending RideKC driver receives tearful thanks

This good Samaritan beat the %$#! out of the attacker! With his cane!

Rodney Goldman didn’t think twice about coming to the defense of a RideKC bus driver he saw struggling against an attacker early Saturday.

The 56-year-old Goldman, a frequent rider on the bus, knew the driver by sight but not by name. Regardless, he was raised not to stand for anyone mistreating a woman, and when he saw a disturbed passenger holding the female driver in a headlock, Goldman beat the attacker with his cane until it broke.

“My adrenaline kicked in, and I did what I had to do,” Goldman said later in an interview. “I just got my cane.”

Weed-killer Roundup to get cancer warning after chemical giant Monsanto loses California court battle

If it carries out the proposal, California would be the first state to order such labeling for the weed-killer, which is used by farmers and home gardeners worldwide.

Monsanto had sued the nation's leading agricultural state, saying California officials illegally based their decision for carrying the warnings on an international health organization based in France.

The chemical giant has insisted that its product poses no risk to people.

These are the messages conveyed by Dr Rosemary Mason in her recent open letter to Councillor Rob Stewart, the leader of Swansea City and County Council.

Dr Mason adds that Swansea has over the years been a testing ground for glyphosate with the outcome being a huge spike in illness and disease among the local population as well as ongoing environmental devastation. There has been a long-term reckless use of a glyphosate-based weedkiller in Swansea, regardless of EU recommendations.

EU Parliament Committee Votes To Give Robots Rights (And A Kill Switch)

Foreseeing a rapidly approaching age of autonomous artificial intelligence, a European Parliament committee has voted to legally bestow electronic personhood to robots. The status includes a detailed list of rights, responsibilities, regulations, and a “kill switch.”

The committee voted by 17 votes to two, with two abstentions, to approve a draft report written by Luxembourg MEP Mady Delvaux, who believes “robots, bots, androids and other manifestations of artificial intelligence” will spawn a new industrial revolution. She wants to establish a European Agency to develop rules for how to govern AI behavior. Specifically, Delvaux writes about how increased levels of autonomy in robot entities will make usual manufacturing liability laws insufficient. It will become necessary, the report states, to be able to hold robots and their manufacturers legally responsible for their acts.

Ocean changes upend North Coast fisheries… once reliable ocean rhythms have been seriously unsettled of late, confounding those who depend on predictable, seasonal cycles… a symptom of widespread marine anomalies that have prevailed for the past three years, threatening everything from seabirds and sea lions to treasured catches such as salmon and abalone. “The ocean is changing,” one glum crabber aboard the vessel New Horizon said… Irregularity “is starting to look like the new normal,” he said… Evidence of starvation in abalone populations prompted authorities to impose new restrictions in the sport abalone fishery next year to limit the catch. The commercial red urchin fishery is suffering, as well…

Gaps In Lead Screening Policies Across States Put Our Children At Risk

Until a few weeks ago, I’d not considered the problem of lead contamination as something I should worry about personally. This, despite the fact that I live in a house built in the 1930s with old doors and windows with lead paint. We replaced those a few years ago and the renovations were done in keeping with US Environmental Protection Agency guidelines. So that, I thought, was the end of it. Lead in the water supply, which I’d researched when the Flint, Michigan crisis began became public, wasn’t much of an issue in the California Bay Area.

Caution: Salmon From Seattle, WA Region Contains Cocaine And Prescription Drugs.The contaminant levels found in Puget Sound were some of the highest in the United States.
Why do Puget Sound salmon contain contaminates?
Researchers speculate that the fish have contaminates because drug use is rampant in the region or because septic tanks are leaky. Another theory is that wastewater plants are not able to remove all of the estimated 97,000 pounds of contaminants flowing into Puget Sound each year.
Perhaps even more worrying is that the amount of drugs in the water near outfall pipes and in deep water may be underreported, according to researchers. Yikes. What the researchers found and measured is scary enough already.

Documentary film Vaxxed is directed by Andrew Wakefield, who was struck off for his discredited research suggesting there was a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

The film, which has been supported by actor Robert De Niro, had been scheduled to be shown at the Curzon Cinema in Soho on February 14.

Cancer-causing ingredient found in toothpaste and chewing gum

A dangerous ingredient that may trigger the development of cancer has been found in toothpaste and certain food products, a recent study, published in Scientific Reports said. It goes about food coloring known as E171 (titanium dioxide). The substance is used for the production of toothpaste and food products. It was found that titanium dioxide causes pre-cancerous diseases, researchers from France and Luxembourg concluded as a result of a series of experiments on rodents. The experiments were conducted on rats. During 100 days of the experiments, the rodents would receive injections of E171 in quantities proportional to what humans take with food and cosmetic products. Precancerous lesions were found in either intestines or colon in 40% of rats exposed to the chemical. The influence of the coloring on people is yet to be established. Titanium dioxide is widely used in the production of sweets, chocolate, biscuits and chewing gum, as well as in toothpaste and sunscreens.

Hydrogen turned into metal in stunning act of alchemy that could revolutionise technology and spaceflight

For nearly 100 years, scientists have dreamed of turning the lightest of all the elements, hydrogen, into a metal.

Now, in a stunning act of modern-day alchemy, scientists at Harvard University have finally succeeded in creating a tiny amount of what is the rarest, and possibly most valuable, material on the planet, they reported in the journal Science.

For metallic hydrogen could theoretically revolutionise technology, enabling the creation of super-fast computers, high-speed levitating trains and ultra-efficient vehicles and dramatically improving almost anything involving electricity.

And it could also allow humanity to explore outer space as never before.

But the prospect of this bright future could be at risk if the scientists’ next step – to establish whether the metal is stable at normal pressures and temperatures – fails to go as hoped.
