THANKS TO FACEBOOK, YOUR CELLPHONE COMPANY IS WATCHING YOU MORE CLOSELY THAN EVER

Among the mega-corporations that surveil you, your cellphone carrier has always been one of the keenest monitors, in constant contact with the one small device you keep on you at almost every moment. A confidential Facebook document reviewed by The Intercept shows that the social network courts carriers, along with phone makers — some 100 different companies in 50 countries — by offering the use of even more surveillance data, pulled straight from your smartphone by Facebook itself.

5G DANGER: HUNDREDS OF RESPECTED SCIENTISTS SOUND THE ALARM ABOUT HEALTH EFFECTS AS 5G NETWORKS GO UP NATIONWIDE

Even though many in the scientific community are loudly warning about the potential health effects that 5G technology could have on the general population, Verizon and AT&T are starting to put up their 5G networks in major cities all across the nation. Today, the total number of cell phones exceeds the entire population of the world, and the big cell phone companies are making a crazy amount of money providing service to all of those phones. And now that the next generation of cell phone technology has arrived, millions of cell phone users are looking forward to better connections and faster speeds than ever before. In fact, President Trump says that 5G networks will be up to 100 times faster than the current 4G networks that we are using right now…

Roundup® & Glyphosate Exposed For What They Are: Toxic, Disease-causing Chemicals

Even though Monsanto has been ‘taken down’ via a buy-out by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the ‘legacy’ of its toxic herbicide, Roundup®, literally has become a chemical scourge upon human health, plus the environment by poisoning soil, ground water, insect pollinators and producing other adverse effects yet to be discovered.

One unsuspecting place glyphosate, the main chemical active in Roundup®, has been scientifically found is in certain vaccines per the Anthony Samsel, PhD, and Stephanie Seneff, PhD, independent, conflict-of-interest-free research on page 15 of the report Vaccines and Glyphosate: A Toxic Combination.

Twitter goes all-in for the vaccine deep state

Telling the truth about vaccines on Twitter, if you don’t get immediately shadowbanned or deplatformed for doing so, could land you, your account, and all of your tweeted content in Jack Dorsey’s digital "misinformation" bin, according to disturbing new reports.

The far-Left social media platform is reportedly launching a new ministry of propaganda "feature" that aims to stop Twitter users from sharing posts, videos, or other information that in any way suggests that vaccines aren’t 100 percent safe and effective all the time like the government claims.

What You Need to Know About the Latest WhatsApp Vulnerability

By Eva Galperin

If you are one of WhatsApp’s billion-plus users, you may have read that on Monday the company announced that it had found a vulnerability. This vulnerability allowed an attacker to remotely upload malicious code onto a phone by sending packets of data that look like phone calls from a number not in your contacts list. These repeated calls then cause WhatsApp to crash. This is a particularly scary vulnerability because the does not require that the user pick up the phone, click a link, enter their login credentials, or interact in any way...

Monsanto’s “Rain of Death” on Canada’s Forests

First Nations in Ontario have run out of patience. For 43 years, the forest industry has been conducting aerial spraying of glyphosate herbicide on Indigenous lands – a “rain of death” used in forest management practice that has slowly been killing off a wide range of animals, plants, fish and insects. First Nations have tried to stop this practice since the 1990s through a variety of measures including meetings with logging companies and government officials, protests and reports, but all to no avail. The “rain of death” keeps coming.

Bayer’s Stock Has Lost 44% Of Its Value Since They Bought Monsanto

By John Vibes

Bayer’s stock price fell to a seven-year low this week, after the company lost a $2 billion lawsuit over claims that the weedkiller Roundup causes cancer. Roundup weedkiller is a product that was developed by the controversial biotech corporation Monsanto, but the company was purchased by Bayer for $66 Billion in 2016. Along with the acquisition of the extremely profitable company, Bayer has also inherited a long list of lawsuits and reputation problems...

The media has turned against Monsanto, and Bayer is now facing a “snowball effect” of new lawsuits from victims of Roundup (glyphosate) exposure

With the acquisition of Monsanto by Bayer, a German corporation linked to the Third Reich and the chemical murder of Jews during the Holocaust, the U.S. media has now turned against Monsanto.

The $2 billion jury award against Monsanto that was just handed down by a California jury has been widely reported by the very same media that, for years, blacklisted any criticism of Monsanto, GMOs or glyphosate herbicide.

They did that because Monsanto ran a “black ops” division that bribed and threatened journalists across the country while keeping a “hit list” of which journalists to pay off or threaten with violence. Bayer has now become aware of this “black ops” division of Monsanto and has publicly apologized for its operation.

Chelsea Manning is jailed AGAIN after telling a judge she would 'rather STARVE to death' than testify before a grand jury investigating Wikileaks

Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning has been sent to jail - again - for refusing to testify to a grand jury.

A judge on Thursday ordered Manning back to the Alexandria Detention Center until she agrees to testify to a grand jury investigating Wikileaks or until the grand jury term expires in 18 months.

Manning, 31, has already served two months in jail but was released last week when that grand jury term expired.

Judge Anthony Trenga was not impressed with her rationale and said that jail time may cause her to reflect differently on the issue.

Manning told the judge that she would 'rather starve to death' than change her opinion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF she does die in jail (and I am hoping this will not happen), the Grand Jury will be unable to bring charges against Assange.

Bayer discovers “black ops” division run by Monsanto, shuts it down, initiates internal investigation as law enforcement prepares criminal charges against the chemical giant

For over a decade, Monsanto has been engaged in building and maintapining “hit lists” of journalists, lawmakers and regulators to be taken out if they opposed the evil agenda of GMOs and toxic glyphosate weed killer chemicals that now inundate the world food supply. Any influential person who opposed the Monsanto agenda was subjected to one or more of the following:

Attempted bribery

Death threats and intimidation

Character assassination through well-funded “negative P.R.” campaigns

Defamation via coordinated Wikipedia attacks, run by Monsanto operatives

Career destruction, such as getting scientists blacklisted from science journals

Being doxxed, having their home addresses publicized and their families and co-workers threatened

In other words, Monsanto has been running a “black ops” division for over ten years, spending perhaps $100 million or more on efforts to silence, destroy or assassinate anyone who interfered with the agricultural giant’s market dominance.

Why desperate Americans are driving to Canada in caravans for insulin

Quinn Nystrom was expecting the worst.

She thought the U.S. Border Patrol would want to search her car. That she would be bombarded with questions. That they would demand she show her prescription for insulin.

Worst of all, she was worried they would confiscate the small, cold vials of a life-saving drug that she had crossed the border to buy at a pharmacy in Fort Frances, Ont.

But it didn't happen. Not for Nystrom, not for anyone in her small group from Minnesota — calling themselves the Caravan to Canada — who were on a mission last weekend to buy insulin at one-tenth the price of what it's listed in the United States.

Canadian drug makers hit with $1.1B lawsuit for promoting opioids despite risks

Canadian drug makers enriched themselves at the expense of vulnerable patients by illegally and deceptively promoting highly addictive opioids that have killed thousands in recent years, a proposed class action filed Wednesday asserts.

The untested statement of claim filed in Ontario Superior Court seeks more than $1.1 billion in various damages from almost two dozen companies, including some of the biggest pharmaceutical names in the country such as Apotex, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Johnson and Johnson, and the Jean Coutu Group.

The suit, filed on behalf of patients who became addicted to prescribed opioids, also seeks a declaration that the companies were negligent in how they researched, developed and marketed opioids starting in the 1990s

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good; this should happen to any drug company which declared the risks of opioid pain killers to be "reasonable and manageable".

Google is about to have a lot more ads on phones

Google announced a bunch of new ad types today that’ll start showing up throughout its mobile products, including some that interrupt the core Google search and discovery experiences.

Google searches on mobile will soon include “gallery” ads that allow advertisers to display multiple images for users to swipe through. You’ll also begin to see ads in Google’s discover feed — the feed of news stories that you find built into many Android home screens, inside the Google app, and on Google’s mobile homepage — though they’ll only appear in select locations for now.

The new ad formats are meant to make ads a lot more noticeable. In a blog post, Google ad chief Prabhakar Raghavan says that, in tests, gallery ads resulted in “up to 25 percent more interactions” than traditional search ads.

Twitter Bans Official AOC Account After Mistaking It For Satire

The social network had banned several popular parody accounts of the congresswoman. The company then deployed an algorithm to identify and automatically ban accounts that satirized Ocasio-Cortez or her allies in Congress. Unfortunately, the algorithm got "a little too aggressive," and banned Ocasio-Cortez herself.

The AOC parody accounts are so spot-on, that Twitter can't tell the difference.

Varney Begs For Pity On Poor Monsanto After Massive RoundUp Cancer Verdict

Fox Business anchor Stuart Varney on Tuesday lashed out at a California court after it awarded more than $2 billion to a couple who accused Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer of causing cancer.

In a rant on his Fox Business show, Varney insisted that the cancer victims had been awarded too much money.

“I’m going to call that a travesty of justice,” Varney explained. “Get your case in front of a sympathetic jury and who knows how much money you can walk away with. But is it justice?”“There’s more [Monsanto] lawsuits to come,” the host warned. “The German company which makes Roundup faces absolute ruin.”

Americans driving to Canada for cheaper insulin as prices skyrocket

As insulin prices soar to new heights, some Americans have decided to cross the Canadian border to obtain cheaper medication.

People from Minnesota who are part of the #Insulin4All initiative organised a "Caravan to Canada", driving five hours to purchase insulin for $30 (£23) a vial rather than the $300 they would pay in the US.

Teva Is at Center of a Drug Price-Fixing Case Outlined by States

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. helped mastermind a sweeping conspiracy among generic drugmakers to raise prices for medicines, according to a new antitrust lawsuit filed by states that stems from a five-year investigation of the companies.

More than a dozen current and former executives at top generic-drug makers, including Mylan NV and a unit of Pfizer Inc., were sued on Friday by more than 40 states led by Connecticut Attorney General William Tong.

“We have hard evidence that shows the generic drug industry perpetrated a multi-billion dollar fraud on the American people,” Tong said in a statement Friday. “We all wonder why our health care, and specifically the prices for generic prescription drugs, are so expensive in this country — this is a big reason why.”

Big Pharma Exec Pushing Opioids Found Guilty of Racketeering

£14m pay deal for boss of 'unaffordable' cystic fibrosis drug

The chief executive of a company making a potentially life-saving cystic fibrosis drug that the NHS says is unaffordable was paid $18.8m (£14.4m) in cash and shares last year, the Guardian can reveal.

A circular to shareholders ahead of the company’s upcoming annual meeting showed that Jeff Leiden’s deal was 81 times more than the median Vertex employee was paid and an increase on last year’s $17.2m deal. Separate stock market announcements show that he has also sold more than $70m of company stock over the past two years, some or all of it handed to him as part of his pay deals.

His personal remuneration in 2018 is enough to fund a one-year course of its cystic fibrosis drug Orkambi for 137 patients. Vertex is asking £105,000 per patient per year for the drug, which the NHS insists is not value for money. There are 10,400 children and young adults with cystic fibrosis in the UK, 40% of whom could benefit from Orkambi.

Chemicals in Sunscreen Seep Into Your Bloodstream After Just One Day

By Elias Marat

If you’re like most people, you usually don’t step out into the blazing-hot sun unless you’ve slapped on a good amount of spray or lotion to ward off the cancer-causing UV rays that bombard us when we go outside. And for many among us, this isn’t simply a case of slathering on sunscreen when we head to the beach or to an outdoor all-day picnic—no, we need the stuff daily for our day at work, school, or simple outdoor recreation.

But according to new research from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the chemicals in our sunscreen don’t merely sit on top of our skin until we rinse it off. Instead, many of the active ingredients enter our bloodstream at levels far in excess of what was previously believed...

Early in April Noah was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. After 2 rounds of chemotherapy, which parents reluctantly agreed to because they were told the courts could force them to comply, along with other proven therapies used to treat cancer, including very specific dietary intervention, IV vitamin therapy, herbal supplementation, and alternative therapies, Noah and his parents celebrated that his cancer was no longer being detected. Due to the laws in the US children 18 and under are required to undergo the full recommended treatment plan of the pediatric oncologist regardless of the progress or desire for alternative opinions or treatments. Yes, children are being forced to continue undergoing toxic treatments even when their bodies are free of any cancer.

Germany proposes $2,790 fine for unvaccinated children amid measles outbreak in US

Germany's health minister is proposing fines for parents of school-age children who haven't been vaccinated for measles amid concern that the highly contagious and potentially deadly disease could make a comeback.

In an interview published Sunday with German weekly Bild am Sonntag, minister Jens Spahn said parents who can't prove their children have been vaccinated for measles should have to pay up to 2,500 euros ($2,790).

The minister also proposed that children without measles vaccinations be banned from going to daycare facilities, to protect others who are too young or medically unable to receive a measles immunization.

EPA Proposes Re-approving Glyphosate, Ignoring Cancer Risk

Relying heavily on confidential industry research, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed to re-approve glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.

EPA’s conclusion that glyphosate poses no risks to humans contradicts a 2015 World Health Organization analysis of the leading independent research that determined glyphosate is a probable carcinogen.

“American consumers have no reason to trust the EPA’s deeply flawed assessment of glyphosate’s safety,” said Nathan Donley, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity. “As with past EPA studies, the agency has relied heavily on confidential industry research that can’t be reviewed by independent scientists. This is an industry-friendly conclusion that’s simply not based on the best available science.”

TRUMP'S EPA DEFIES SCIENCE, PROPOSES NEW APPROVAL OF GLYPHOSATE

Yesterday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a "proposed interim decision" on glyphosate's registration review, denying the pesticide's widely-accepted carcinogenic threat, while leaving leaving several critical assessments unfinished.

In 2015, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) found glyphosate to be a probable human carcinogen, a determination supported by the medical science community. The State of California also lists glyphosate as a carcinogen under Prop 65. Juries have decided in favor of two cancer victims who sued Monsanto, a major glyphosate manufacturer, for failing to warn of the cancer risk posed by the company's glyphosate-based herbicides, and awarded them roughly $80 million each. Over 11,000 additional plaintiffs have similar cases pending. Monsanto was recently acquired by the German corporation Bayer.

Bombshell Flashback: Merck FAKED mumps vaccine research, released faulty vaccine that didn’t work, say virologists in False Claims Act filing

With the deceptive “mainstream” media now running measles hysteria 24/7, you might be shocked to learn that the MMR vaccine doesn’t work as claimed. Even Reuters is now reporting that 10% of those infected with the measles were previously vaccinated against the measles.

This stunning admission is found in an April 29 article from Reuters entitled, “U.S. measles outbreak raises questions about immunity in adults.” The article states:

Up to 10 percent of the 695 confirmed measles cases in the current outbreak occurred in people who received one or two doses of the vaccine, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Merck FAKED vaccine efficacy data and committed widespread scientific fraud, say virologists

Vaccination bill dead in Colorado Senate amid concerns from governor

A bill that would have made it more difficult for parents to exempt their children from vaccines — legislation that has consumed the General Assembly during the final days of the session — died Thursday.

Senate Democrats, who hold a narrow majority and cleared their crowded calendar Wednesday afternoon to hold a four-hour hearing on the bill, on Thursday delayed debate on it, effectively killing it.

A lot of factors led to the move, said Sen. Julie Gonzales, D-Denver, one of the sponsors. But Gov. Jared Polis’ objections certainly carried weight.

“I wish that he would have allowed the legislative process to do its work on this policy,” Gonzales said. “But I look forward to working with him during the interm to bring forward a stronger bill.”

Measles vaccines kill more children than the measles… and it’s not even close

With all of the hysteria and fear-mongering about measles that’s sweeping mainstream media headlines these days, one might assume that children everywhere are dropping dead from this chickenpox-like infection. But according to official data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), not a single person has died while being infected with measles in more than 15 years.

On the other hand, it’s an undeniable fact that at least 100 people have died as a consequence of receiving the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella, which we’ve all been told by government health authorities, is supposed to protect against measles.

As is now obvious to everyone who’s actually paying attention, the MMR vaccine is actually far more dangerous than measles itself, which back in the 1950s and 1960s was joked about in television shows like “The Brady Bunch” for being a harmless rite of passage from childhood into adulthood.

Merck 1Q net quadruples as cancer drug, vaccine sales soar

Surging sales of vaccines and the cancer immunotherapy drug Keytruda led to a quadrupling of profit at Merck during the first quarter as it blew past Wall Street expectations.

Sales of Keytruda jumped 55% to $2.27 billion, about one-quarter of total revenue. During the quarter, the injected biologic drug racked up U.S. approvals as an initial treatment for advanced kidney cancer and advanced nonsmall-cell lung cancer and for treating melanoma after surgery.

Keytruda is now approved for nearly 20 cancer types and patient groups here, and recently got approval for treating lung cancer patients in China, a huge market where Merck is ahead of competitors. Merck research head Roger Perlmutter told analysts on a conference call that the company just listed its 1,000th Keytruda patient study —either ongoing or completed — on the U.S. clinical trials registry site.

The stupid reason Apple is using to try to stop you from fixing your own iPhone

As Apple's iPhone business hits soggy ground, the company redoubled its efforts to get a right to repair bill in California pulled, offering up a plainly stupid reason why owners shouldn't fix their own iPhones.

According to Motherboard, Apple, along with lobbyists from tech trade organization CompTIA, reportedly told legislators that owners trying to fix their own iPhones could hurt themselves in the process if they damaged the lithium-ion battery.

They Want It to Be Secret: How a Common Blood Test Can Cost $11 or Almost $1,000

It’s one of the most common tests in medicine, and it is performed millions of times a year around the country. Should a metabolic blood panel test cost $11 or $952?

Both of these are real, negotiated prices, paid by health insurance companies to laboratories in Jackson, Miss., and El Paso in 2016. New data, analyzing the health insurance claims of 34 million Americans covered by large commercial insurance companies, shows that enormous swings in price for identical services are common in health care. In just one market — Tampa, Fla. — the most expensive blood test costs 40 times as much as the least expensive one.

Straight up: How the Kentucky bourbon industry is going high tech

Afternoon sunlight filters through the dusty windows of a 125-year-old bourbon warehouse as Wild Turkey master distiller Eddie Russell explains the process of making Kentucky's most famous export.

As Russell talks about the nuances of his art, the intoxicating scent of aging bourbon fills the air in the warehouse, which sits serenely on Wild Turkey Hill overlooking the Kentucky River and houses more than 14,000 bourbon barrels.

"You're smelling the angel's share. You're smelling some of that oak, some of the whiskey that's coming out of that oak, some of the water," he said. It's called the angel's share not because it's heavenly, but because it evaporates into the atmosphere before ever touching human lips.

Burger King says demand for its plant-based Impossible Burgers is outstripping supply as the company that supplies them pledges to open its factory longer and employ more staff

Demand for fake-meat products produced by Impossible Foods is so high that the company is running out of stock amid unprecedented demand and a lucrative deal with Burger King.

It was announced yesterday that Burger King would offer a plant-based burger, the Impossible Whopper, produced by Impossible Foods, at all its locations throughout the United States by the end of 2019. Burger King has over 7,000 locations across the country.

However, Impossible has reached out to distributors and restaurants to let them know that an Impossible shortage is 'entirely possible' and that demand is 'outpacing the company's manufacturing capabilities,' as first reported by Eater.

Impossible Foods issued a statement Tuesday saying it was stretched thin because of growth in 'every sales category' where it does business, including restaurants, theme parks and college campuses. The company is struggling from 'demand greatly outstripping supply.'

COINCIDENCE – CONVENIENCE – CONSPIRACY?

Now, before you get all worked up into a warm and fuzzy rejections of such an audacious claim, consider the following. George W. Bush gave the pharmaceutical industry a big bone when he gave them federal Medicare and Medicaid coverage. That’s like telling them they’ve got an unlimited advertising budget – have you seen more Big Pharma ads on TV lately? In other words, he told the pharmaceutical industry, that they would be paid whatever they wanted for medications they provided to any Federally subsidized patients on those two programs which are growing exponentially and both bankrupt, but people are still getting sick, and they’ve been convinced by propaganda to rely upon Big Pharma for their daily “fix”. It comes to 9 – 13 prescriptions a year for the elderly.

Trump EPA Sides With Bayer/Monsanto, Claims Cancer-Causing Weedkiller ‘Safe’

By Alex Formuzis

The Environmental Protection Agency said today the active ingredient in Bayer-Monsanto’s carcinogenic weedkiller Roundup is safe, ignoring a growing body of independent research showing a strong connection between glyphosate and cancer in humans.

“Today’s decision by Administrator Wheeler, like virtually every one he and the Trump administration make, completely ignores science in favor of polluters like Bayer,” said EWG President Ken Cook. “This move by EPA should not come as a surprise. Under the control of Trump and Wheeler, the agency is virtually incapable of taking steps to protect people from dangerous chemicals like glyphosate.”...

California’s High-Speed Train Makes Solyndra Look Like a Bargain

By David Boaz

The ongoing saga of California’s high-speed bullet train may end up being as classic a story of Democratic politicians’ hubris as the Solyndra debacle. The difference is that the bullet train is still going—well, not the train itself, but the taxpayer spending on the planning—despite some optimism earlier this year that Gov. Gavin Newsom was going to put the project out of its misery. A Los Angeles Times story last week by Ralph Vartabedian is a deep dive on the consulting companies that have been intimately involved in the whole process. Here’s the most revealing nugget...

By B.N. Frank

He seemed more than qualified for the job. In his interview with The New Yorker, he provides intricate details of why we should all be freaking out over 5G regardless of who installs it.
