UFO or Transformer Explosion

Many unusual events have occured over the last few days, leaving some people to claim that UFO’s are sending a message. The first video was taken in Kenner, Louisiana in the early morning of December 27. The official story is that all the transformers blew out from high winds that damaged an electrical grid. A witness named Charles Walton claimed to see a UFO a mile wide. While I am open minded, I couldn’t see any detailed UFO’s in the videos, but the explosions are a spectacular display.

Sanofi/Merck “6 in 1” vaccine approved by FDA for kids and is coming soon

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Sanofi’s new pediatric vaccine immunizing children against six diseases, the French pharmaceutical lab said on Wednesday.

Sanofi developed the new vaccine, dubbed Vaxelis, in partnership with Merck.

Vaxelis is designed for children aged 6 weeks to 4 years old and is designed to keep them from contracting diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, and invasive disease due to haemophilus influenza type B.

Sanofi and Merck are now working on the production and supply of Vaxelis aiming to make it available on the market in 2020 or later.

Inspiring Woman Invents Refugee Tents That Collect Rainwater and Store Solar Energy

Facing the difficulty of finding basic shelter and a home to live in, award-winning Jordanian-Canadian architect Abeer Seikaly was inspired to come up with a solution to help transform the lives of these refugees.

Named ‘Weaving a Home’, this design uses a unique structural fabric composed of high-strength plastic tubing molded into sine-wave curves that can expand and enclose during different weather conditions, and also be broken down to allow an ease in mobility and transport.

Aside from that, the tent can also collect rainwater and provide basic sanitation like showering, as the rainwater is collected from the top of the tent and and filters down the sides to storage pockets.

Through its innovative engineering design, the tent can also absorb solar energy and transform it into electric energy, which is stored in special batteries.

International traveler with measles arrived at New Jersey airport, state health officials say; warn of possible exposure

An individual who flew to a New Jersey airport on Christmas Eve has a confirmed case of the measles, health officials said Friday, warning that others could have been exposed.

The traveler with the “highly contagious disease” flew into Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal B on Dec. 24 from Brussels, the New Jersey Department of Health revealed in a news release.

The infected person was contagious at the time and possibly went to other parts of the travel hub, officials said.

Indonesia Raises Danger Level for Anak Krakatau Volcano, More Tsunamis Feared

Indonesian officials raised the danger level for the Anak Krakatau volcano on Thursday to the second-highest level, increasing the size of the no-go zone around the volcano from two to five kilometers.

Local citizens were also urged to back away from coastal regions as more tsunamis could occur.

Last weekend’s deadly tsunami was triggered by a landslide from the volcano that was not accompanied by major seismic tremors, baffling an Indonesian tsunami-warning system that relies on detecting earthquakes.

New GMO label rules don't use the term GMO

Remember this word: Bioengineered.

It's the term the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has settled on for food labels that will indicate the presence of genetically modified organisms or GMOs in our food. In a final rule published earlier this month, the Agricultural Marketing Service arm of the USDA spelled out the new national mandatory food disclosure standard for bioengineered or BE foods.

It will require "food manufacturers, importers, and other entities that label foods for retail sale to disclose information about BE food and BE food ingredients. This rule is intended to provide a mandatory uniform national standard for disclosure of information to consumers about the BE status of foods. Establishment and implementation of the new Standard is required by an amendment to the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946."

Satellite Images Show Krakatau Eruption, Landslide Triggered Tsunami

The landslide that caused the Sunda Strait tsunami last week was likely the result of a flank collapse. A 2012 paper “Tsunami hazard related to a flank collapse of Anak Krakatau Volcano, Sunda Strait, Indonesia” notes that Anak Krakatau is built on the northeast side of the caldera created by the explosion of Krakatau and is most active on its own southwest flank. In human terms, this is known as a very, very bad place to build a house.

That paper notes that a collapse-caused tsunami has ample opportunity to inflict damage across the islands in the Sunda Strait, which we now know is precisely what happened. The images show that the landslide occurred on the SW side of Anak Krakatau, as predicted in 2012.

Continent-Sized Lava 'Blobs' Sit Deep Inside Earth, Study Finds

A pair of gigantic lava blobs, each the size of a continent, sit far beneath Earth's surface, and a new study has learned more about their composition.

The study, published June 20 in the journal Nature Geoscience, found each of the lava lamp-like blobs sit at the base of the planet's mantle, just above the core, miles and miles below the surface. Contained by structures that are 100 times taller than Mount Everest, scientists hope to learn more about these chambers, which may reveal more secrets about how the Earth formed billions of years ago, Live Science reports.

What's especially interesting about this study is the revelation that the chambers' composition may be different from that of the surrounding mantle, but the scientists admit they'll need to further study the area to confirm that.

Abortion Is at An All-Time Low – Here’s Why

New federal data shows that the abortion rate in the United States has decreased dramatically over the last decade.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have come out with a a new report that shows America’s abortion rate has declined 26% between 2006 and 2015. This is the lowest level of abortions the government has on record.

This is great news. However, while abortions have significantly declined as reported by the CDC, Life News reports that a number of states don’t actually report their abortion numbers to the CDC. Those states include California, Maryland, and New Hampshire. A number of states also didn’t provide comprehensive numbers and only gave the CDC limited information.

CHINESE SCIENTISTS REPORTEDLY LOST TRACK OF GENE-EDITED PATIENTS

China is finally looking into its scientists’ human gene-editing trials — but some patients are already out of view.

According a newly published Wall Street Journal story, Chinese scientists using CRISPR technology provided by the startup Anhui Kedgene Biotechnology have lost touch with at least some of the late-stage cancer patients whose DNA they altered.

That means no one knows for sure how the editing may have affected the patients in the longer term — and according to experts, that lack of follow-up could affect CRISPR research far beyond China’s borders.

Keeping Tabs
In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration recommends that researchers follow up with patients involved in gene therapy trials for 15 years. No such recommendation exists in China, however, and Chinese CRISPR researchers’ lack of extended follow-up could prove disastrous as the nascent technology finds its footing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah yes, gene editing; what could possibly go wrong, except patients walking away for scientific monitoring?!?

The developers of this technology .... have some 'splaining to do!!

CDC Warning: A Respiratory Virus Is Attacking Both Children And Adults

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning of a respiratory virus that is currently attacking both children and adults. The CDC says that everyone should watch out for Respiratory Syncytial Virus or “RSV.”

RSV may start out by noticeable symptoms that are very similar to those of the common cold and most people will recover in less than two weeks believing they only had a cold. Some symptoms are coughing, wheezing, loss of appetite, runny nose, and a fever. Those symptoms are very similar to those of the common cold, and most people have actually had RSV before possibly believing it to be a cold.

First-ever comprehensive project finds that 93% of Americans have glyphosate in their bodies

If you think the proliferation of crop chemicals throughout the environment isn’t all that big of a deal, think again. A comprehensive analysis of glyphosate in particular – glyphosate being the main ingredient in Monsanto’s (now Bayer’s) Roundup herbicide – found that a shocking 93 percent of all people have the chemical lingering inside their bodies.

The research project out of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) involved conducting urine samples on test subjects from all across the country, including in areas far away from crop fields where glyphosate and other chemicals are applied. What they found is that almost everyone nowadays is contaminated with glyphosate, which has been identified as a contributor to cancer.

Europe Bans Airport Body Scanners For "Health and Safety" Concerns

The European Union issued a ruling this week that bans X-ray body scanners in all European airports. According to the European Commission, the agency charged with enforcing the ruling across the EU’s 27 member nations, the prohibition is necessary “in order not to risk jeopardizing citizens’ health and safety.”

X-ray body scanners, which use "backscatter" ionized radiation technology, emit enough radiation to theoretically damage DNA and cause cancer. While the level of radiation is extremely low, some studies have found that over time a small number of cancer cases could result from scanning millions of people a year. Statistically the incidence is minuscule, but it’s a possibility nonetheless.

Health officials warn of virus that sends infants to intensive care

Federal health officials warned this week of a highly contagious cold-like virus that affects everyone, and leaves the elderly and young kids especially vulnerable — including a 14-month-old girl who landed in the intensive care unit.

New Orleans mom Mary Danna Daste and her husband, Kevin, rushed their daughter Vivian to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV.

The toddler had developed a troubling cough and high fever earlier this month, 4WWL reported.

“About 3 a.m., she started with this bark-like cough,” Daste told the network. “It sounded like a seal cough. At 5 a.m., her fever spiked to 103 degrees, so we went straight to Children’s Hospital [in New Orleans]. When they told me within 24 hours after that, that she was being put in ICU, that’s when I freaked out.”

Doctors told the parents that the tot also had pneumonia and adenovirus.

Ebola BREAKOUT: 24 patients flee treatment centre sparking emergency search

The patients, some of whom had not yet been tested, broke out of the treatment centre in the Congolese city of Beni.

Officials have tracked three of them, but the rest remain at large, sparking a fear of the deadly disease spreading.

The attack was orchestrated by demonstrators angry at being excluded from voting in the weekend's election.

Beni and its surrounding area has had voting cancelled by the government due to the ebola outbreak and militia violence.

If Solar Panels Are So Clean, Why Do They Produce So Much Toxic Waste?

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in 2016 estimated there was about 250,000 metric tonnes of solar panel waste in the world at the end of that year. IRENA projected that this amount could reach 78 million metric tonnes by 2050.

Solar panels often contain lead, cadmium, and other toxic chemicals that cannot be removed without breaking apart the entire panel. “Approximately 90% of most PV modules are made up of glass,” notes San Jose State environmental studies professor Dustin Mulvaney. “However, this glass often cannot be recycled as float glass due to impurities. Common problematic impurities in glass include plastics, lead, cadmium and antimony.”

Researchers with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) undertook a study for U.S. solar-owning utilities to plan for end-of-life and concluded that solar panel “disposal in “regular landfills [is] not recommended...

The collapse of science: Respected journal publishes “study” that superimposes Trump’s face on monkey feces… Penn State professors rejoice

It is well documented that scientific journals routinely publish fraudulent studies, but never before has academia made such a mockery of science, scientific literature, and their own academic institutions. The left’s infatuation with Donald Trump has tainted their professional careers and exposed the collapse of science. For one, how can Americans trust all the “climate change” studies coming from universities today if the science is being conducted by “scholars” whose main objective is to smear the President, instead of presenting real data?

Vitamin D can STOP the development of liver problems, researchers find

One prospective study that looked at more than 33,000 individuals revealed that sufficient vitamin D intake could reduce the risk of developing liver cancer by an incredible 50 percent. It’s a thrilling finding given the fact that 24,000 people succumb to this aggressive cancer each year.

They also found that vitamin D could potentially serve as a good therapy against chronic hepatitis C infection by impairing the virus’s ability to replicate and slowing its spread. It also helps to stop the liver scarring associated with the illness. In addition, getting sufficient vitamin D lowers the chances of metabolic syndrome by 67 percent.

Shocking research: Prozac could be driving the antibiotic resistance crisis

The misuse and overuse of antibiotic drugs in both humans and animals has played a large part in the development of these “superbugs,” but a recent study has warned that the use of other medications is also driving the development of antibiotic resistance.

The study, published in the journal Environment International, confirmed that the antidepressant drug fluoxetine – commonly known as Prozac or Sarafem – “directly causes multi-antibiotic resistance via genetic mutation.”

PUTIN OVERSEES FINAL HYPERSONIC MISSILE TEST BEFORE 2019 DEPLOYMENT

The Russian Defence Ministry, on special orders from President Vladimir Putin, on Wednesday conducted a successful final test launch of a new hypersonic glide missile system ahead of its official deployment in 2019, according to reports from Russian state media. The new weapon, called the Avangard, uses an intercontinental ballistic missile and a hypersonic glide vehicle and can travel 20 times the speed of sound.

In Wednesday's field exercise, the hypersonic weapon was launched from the Dombarovsky Air Base in the southern Ural Mountains. Moscow said the missile successfully struck a designated practice target on the Kura Missile Test Range, more than 3,700 miles away.

“Putin arrived at the National Defense Control Center and gave the command to start the tests,” the Kremlin’s press office said, according to Russian media outlet Sputnik. “The launch was conducted by combat troops of the Strategic Missile Forces from the Dombarovsky launch facility.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You see, the difference between Russian and American weaponry manufacturers is, that the Russians actually test their equipment before deploying them, to make absolutely certain that they work as they are supposed to; with American weapons manufacturers the results are .... somewhat less stellar.

As those of you who read my posts understand; as a Christian pacifist activist, I abhor war as a way for the US to achieve its geopolitical goals. That having been said, when our military are actually in a war environment, I want to see the best weaponry possible for them, and not fraught with the kinds of delays, foul-ups, bleeps, and blunders we see as a chronic problem in American weapons programs.

And as an example, I give you America's 21st century "Honorary Edsel" of a jet fighter, the Lockheed Martin F-35.

January 24, 2018: the F-35, the world's most expensive weapons system, still has plenty of problems

July 2018: WTF-35: How the Joint Strike Fighter Got to Be Such a Mess

F-35 flaws are being hidden, so that they can claim development phase is done

September, 2018: the F-35 still has unresolved design flaws

October 17, 2018: Heading into F-35 Operational test, threats of delays loom

You do, I am sure, catch my drift here; the necessary, and highly complex, process of solving these problems appears to be in its absolute infancy, and unless the process is intelligently addressed by both Martin Lockheed and the US military, this will continue to be the Edsel of US weaponry.

TRIPLETS all become autistic within hours of vaccination… see shocking video that has the vaccine industry doubling down on lies and disinfo

A VAXXED video that has been banned almost everywhere is going viral on Brighteon.com, the Youtube alternative video community for free speech on vaccines, GMOs, natural medicine and more.

As the video shows below, healthy triplets all became autistic within hours of vaccination, once again demonstrating that vaccines cause autism. The parents, the McDowell family in Detroit, Michigan, have spoken out publicly against the horrific medical violence being committed against children every day across America through toxic vaccines. (See AutismTruthNews.com for more reporting on vaccines and autism.)

The names of their three children, pictured above, are Richie, Robbie and Claire. All three children were vaccinated on the same day, and within hours, they all become severely autistic.

Bayer Stock Crashes After Monsanto Cancer Verdict Upheld By Judge; Analyst Estimates $800 Billion In Future Liability

They’ve been waiting for the news about how San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos would rule in a certain case. Would she rule against or in favor of Bayer’s appeal of the Monsanto Cancer Verdict?

The case was finally resolved Tuesday morning. Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos upheld the jury’s decision, ruling that Roundup – a dangerous glyphosate-based weedkiller sold by Monsanto – lead to California man’s terminal cancer. She also ruled that Monsanto, in fact, intentionally hid the potential dangers of the weedkiller. (1)

Bayer had to know that such news would result in serious damage to the company. As the news of Judge Ramon Bolanos’ ruling spread like wildfire, it, of course, affected the stock market as well. The ruling resulted in an immediate crash in Bayer’s stock value.

COVER-UP: Scientists who find glyphosate herbicide in common foods are silenced or reassigned

Do you know what’s really in the foods you eat? Sure, there’s a list of ingredients on the package, but your food could contain one very toxic substance that isn’t disclosed: glyphosate. You might not be too surprised to find this deadly herbicide ingredient in non-organic fruits and vegetables, but the truth is that it has also made its way into a surprising number of popular foods – and countless unsuspecting people are ingesting this dangerous carcinogen.

The Guardian reports that U.S. government scientists found glyphosate in foods like crackers, cornmeal, and granola cereal. Of course, this information wasn’t publicized; it was uncovered in emails that were obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

For two years, the FDA has been testing food samples for glyphosate residues, but they have yet to release the official results. Nevertheless, one email written by a chemist for the FDA, Richard Thompson, to his colleagues showed how pervasive the problem is.

Fluoride is a neurotoxin that damages your brain

For many people, fluoride has become a fact of life. The addition of fluoride to public water supplies en masse has made avoiding exposure to this toxin very difficult. While proponents of fluoride say that this “mineral” is essential for dental health, the truth is that fluoride is not an essential nutrient. Human beings do not need to consume fluoride to be healthy — and in fact, you are much better off without it.

While it is true that fluoride can be found in the Earth’s crust, the fluoride used in dental products and tap water is not derived from the Earth. Instead, water fluoridation relies on chemicals known as “silicofluorides.” These are byproducts of the phosphate fertilizer industry — and municipalities nationwide allow these chemicals to be dumped into the water supply for the explicit purpose of human consumption.

Krakatoa Alert: Another Eruption Could Potentially Kill Millions And Significantly Lower Global Temperatures For 5 Years

Because most Americans are so focused on preparations for Christmas, not a lot of attention is being paid to the massive disaster that just took place in Indonesia, and that is a huge mistake.

Anak Krakatoa has sprung to life, and there is a reason why it is known as one of the most dangerous volcanoes on the entire planet. When Krakatoa erupted on August 27th, 1883 the explosion was so loud that it was literally heard 3,000 miles away, and it was estimated that the tsunami waves were over 100 feet tall in some places. If such an eruption happened today, it would be an even worse disaster than the 2004 Indonesian tsunami which killed more than 200,000 people globally. We are talking about an event that would instantly alter all of our lives for reasons that I will share below.

So the fact that this mountain of fire has come alive is a really big deal.

Ohio Bans Dismemberment Abortions

The common second trimester abortion procedure – also known as dilation and evacuation (D&E) – involves dilating the mother’s cervix and then removing the baby’s limbs using surgical instruments prior to extracting his or her remains from the uterus.

“Ohio Right to Life is immensely grateful to our governor and our pro-life legislature for prioritizing this crucial legislation,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, adding:

Ohio Right to Life has seen 21 pro-life initiatives become law in the last eight years. All of these initiatives have led to abortions decreasing by more than 25% in Ohio, and half of Ohio’s abortion clinics shutting down. With four years of pro-life Governor-elect Mike DeWine ahead of us, the prospect of ending abortion in Ohio has never looked better.

Abortionists who perform dismemberment abortions in defiance of the law could face fourth-degree felony charges, including a jail sentence and fines, reports Fox 31.

Japan to Leave International Whaling Commission to Resume Whaling - Reports

Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Wednesday that Tokyo decided to pull out from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) starting in 2019 to resume commercial whaling in July after a 30-year pause, local media reported.

Japan decided to withdraw from the organization since its calls for the whaling resumption due to the growing number of whales had not been supported by other states in the IWC, the NHK World broadcaster reported.

Despite the fact that Japan officially refrained from whaling for about 30 years, whale meat from time to time could be found in the country's supermarkets and restaurants.

The IWC banned commercial whaling in 1986, but some countries including Japan, Norway and Iceland have exploited a provision in the 1946 Convention for the Regulation of Whaling that allows whales to be killed for scientific purposes.

My great great grampa fought at Gettysburg with the 6th Virginia Infantry Regiment,Army of Northern Virginia,General Robert E. Lee commanding.They were assigned the job of guarding Lee's artillery or I probably would not be here.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- One hundred and fifty-six years ago, America was ripped apart by the greatest conflict it had ever seen. Two years into the Civil War there was no end in sight, and rebel forces were making headway.

The Battle of Gettysburg was the high-water mark of the Confederacy, as General Robert E. Lee marched northward through the Shenandoah Valley with designs on penetrating deep into Pennsylvania.

Over the course of three days, Union and Confederate armies suffered between 46,000 and 51,000 casualties, making Gettysburg the most costly battle in U.S. history.

Incoherent Thoughts from the Yankee Capital: Papua New Guinea Looks Better and Better II

Having just returned from two weeks in the curious environs of Washington, DC, I offer a few observations on the national lunacy deposit:

The de-Christianization of the country, or at least this part of it, is almost complete. I can think of hearing the word “Christmas” only twice in two weeks of trough-inciting retail advertising.

Culture shock: We stayed with friends who for various reasons, such as being in the business, always had a television on. At home in Mexico we got rid of the lobotomy box some fifteen years ago, seeing little advantage in paying seventy dollars a month for 250 channels, none worth watching, adorned with twenty minutes an hour of stupid commercials. Coming back to this was like jumping into raw sewage. Perhaps the worst of it was the contempt for the public manifested in running the same ad twice in one commercial break, and in the loving close-ups of pizzas with dripping cheese. Buy, buy, buy.

Did Defense Secretary James Mattis Commit War Crimes in Iraq?

Retired Gen. James Mattis earned the nickname “Mad Dog” for leading U.S. Marines into battle in Fallujah, Iraq, in April 2004. In that assault, members of the Marine Corps, under Mattis’ command, shot at ambulances and aid workers. They cordoned off the city, preventing civilians from escaping. They posed for trophy photos with the people they killed.

Each of these offenses has put other military commanders and members of the rank and file in front of international war crimes tribunals. The doctrine that landed them there dates back to World War II, when an American military tribunal held Japanese Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita accountable for war crimes in the Philippines. His execution later was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

During the siege of Fallujah, which I covered as an unembedded journalist, Marines killed so many civilians that the municipal soccer stadium had to be turned into a graveyard.

Dahr Jamail | James Mattis Is a War Criminal: I Experienced His Attack on Fallujah Firsthand

In November 2005 US marines in Iraq committed a massacre of 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians. The slaughtering of unarmed men, women, children and elderly people, shot multiple times at close range, was retribution for a roadside bomb attack on a convoy of marines. The war crimes were extremely well documented and the atrocity garnered international attention.

When it came time to bring the marines responsible for the massacre to justice, Mattis was the convening authority over the eight charged with crimes at Haditha.

Mattis went on to dismiss all of the charges leveled against the marines who had been accused of killing the civilians and of the eight originally charged, only one still faces possible prosecution, but one can guess how that will end up.

Hey, Remember How James Mattis Was Accused of Doing War Crimes?

It’s also worth remembering that Mattis is hardy deserving of the respect stowed upon him simply because he’s a military guy. In fact, Mattis very may well have committed war crimes while commanding Marines in Iraq. Per Aaron Glantz, who wrote a retrospective for Reveal when Mattis was first nominated for defense secretary:

Retired Gen. James Mattis earned the nickname “Mad Dog” for leading U.S. Marines into battle in Fallujah, Iraq, in April 2004. In that assault, members of the Marine Corps, under Mattis’ command, shot at ambulances and aid workers. They cordoned off the city, preventing civilians from escaping. They posed for trophy photos with the people they killed.

James Comey's high crimes and misdemeanors: It's in the memos

The James Comey memos were just released for public viewing and with a quick glance, a most cursory of looks, it’s obvious: The former FBI guy looks guilty enough to go to jail now. In fact, an American with lesser political protection and Deep State shield would probably already be behind bars, awaiting trial.

Breast cancer drug given to hundreds of thousands of women on the NHS affects brain function and memory

A drug commonly given out by the NHS to breast-cancer patients may affect their brain function and memory, research suggests.

Letrozole is primarily used to treat breast cancer and was prescribed 755,866 times last year in the UK, NHS Digital statistics show.

Although Cancer Research UK states up to 30 per cent of patients experience side effects like hot flushes and fatigue, new research suggests the medication's complications may be far more serious.

When given to monkeys, the drug reduced the function of their brain cells in a region known as the hippocampus, and worsened their performance on memory tests, after just four weeks.
