Ohio Legislature moves towards mandatory vaccines, proposing to eliminate philosophical exemptions entirely

A growing number of parents across the nation are now going against the recommendations of the CDC vaccine schedule – which currently promotes the injecting of 49 doses of various vaccines before a child turns 6 years old. The number of parents opting out of the onslaught of childhood vaccinations has doubled since 2009. As vaccine use plummets, state legislatures are trying to find new ways to bully parents into the vaccination cycle.

A new bill in Ohio (HB 564) seeks to intimidate parents into vaccine compliance by forcing them to be re-educated about the benefits of vaccines. Ohio parents will no longer be allowed to send their children to public schools unless they see a state-licensed medical doctor first to receive such re-education. If the parent objects to a vaccine, and determines it's not worth the risk to their child, they will no longer get to make that choice freely.

HIGHWAY BLUETOOTH DETECTORS ARE SPYING ON MOTORISTS AND PEDESTRIANS

DHS, the Dept., of Transportation and probably the DEA are using Bluetooth detectors to spy on motorists and pedestrians.

Government agencies like DHS and the DEA use Bluetooth detectors to gather Bluetooth data from a Wireless Sensor Network.
Wireless technology that allows electronic devices to communicate directly with one another
Recently emerged as viable travel time collection technology
Open standard, allows for off-the-shelf equipment
Detection range limited to about 328 feet (100 meters)
Less expensive than many other options
Flexible installation
Some potential privacy concerns
Detection technology relies on drivers' use of Bluetooth-enabled devices
“The whole country is doing this,” Paul Misticawi, vice president of public sector sales for traffic data software company.

Bluetooth detectors will soon be able to identify everyone

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are the acts of a government terrified of their own people.

And in terms of surveilling ME?!?

The question would be, why the heck?!?

I'm a Christian pacifist activist, and the choral director of a small local church choir; what "threat level", please, do I present to this government?!?

The logical, short answer would be, zero.

But because I post to this blog, and work through information as logically and intelligently as I can, under the NDAA, I can be imprisoned indefinitely without due process whatsoever.

And as Shakespeare said, "Aye, there's the rub."

When logic itself becomes criminalized, the society in which this is happening is in deep kim chee. (Here in the Islands, that's literally a sour cabbage dish, but it means being in deep trouble.)

And folks, this is already starting to happen in this country.

Dark matter still MIA after most exhaustive search yet

Today, the team behind one of the most sensitive dark matter detectors announced its full experimental run had failed to turn up any of the particles it was looking for. The LUX detector (Large Underground Xenon) is designed to pick up signs of weakly interacting massive particles, or WIMPs, when they engage in one of their rare interactions with normal matter. The null result doesn't rule out the existence of dark matter, but it limits its potential properties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The proponents of the Big Bang theory have a real problem. Starting with the assumption that the observed red shift of distant objects is caused by relative velocity, calculations trying to find the estimated time of the Big Bang, which include the assumed slowing of expansion based on the estimated mass of the visible universe, don't work back to a single moment of divine creation. Rather than question that first assumption that the observed red shift is only caused by relative velocity, the "Bangers" came up with the theory of dark matter, to add enough mass to the cosmos to make the math work out. But, nobody can find the dark matter! And it may well be that the theory of dark matter, like the theory of epicycles, is a fiction intended to avoid going back and challenging that first assumption.

How Alex Jones Uses Fear of the Government to Sell Diet Supplements

Alternative media mogul Alex Jones—one of the most prominent opponents of the New World Order, “scientific dictatorship,” and the secret society that controls the police—has come a long way since he started his first radio show at KJFK in Austin, Texas. The Alex Jones Show, which peddles far-right and libertarian leaning political and social views to its emotionally-invested listeners, is syndicated on over 160 AM and FM stations across the country, carried by the America’s Talk channel on internet radio juggernaut iHeartRadio, and distributed as a popular podcast on iTunes. His website Infowars, which runs various news stories and serves as a hub for his show, gets around 6 million unique visitors per month, according to web analytics firm Alexa.

FLASHBACK - John K. Vance; Uncovered LSD Project at CIA

Code-named MKULTRA (and pronounced m-k-ultra), the project Mr. Vance uncovered was the brainchild of CIA Director Allen Dulles, who was intrigued by reports of mind-control techniques allegedly conducted by Soviet, Chinese and North Korean agents on U.S. prisoners of war during the Korean War. The CIA wanted to use similar techniques on its own POWs and perhaps use LSD or other mind-bending substances on foreign leaders, including Cuba's Fidel Castro a few years after the project got underway in 1953.

Heading MKULTRA was a CIA chemist named Sidney Gottlieb. In congressional testimony, Gottlieb, who died in 1999, acknowledged that the agency had administered LSD to as many as 40 unwitting subjects, including prison inmates and patrons of brothels set up and run by the agency. At least one participant died when he jumped out of a 10th-floor window in a hotel; others claimed to have suffered serious psychological damage.

The Real Reason Pharma Companies Hate Medical Marijuana (Spoiler Alert: It Works)

Whenever an irrational and inhumane law remains on the books far longer than any thinking person would consider appropriate, there’s usually one reason behind it: money.

Unsurprisingly, the continued federal prohibition on marijuana and its absurd classification as a Schedule 1 drug is no exception. Thankfully, a recent study published in the journal Health Affairs shows us exactly why pharmaceutical companies are one of the leading voices against medical marijuana. It has nothing to do with healthcare and everything to do with corporate greed.

So is it a war on drugs, or a war on cheap medicine. Decide for yourself.

The anomaly on the White island: the ground is covered with methane bubbles (video)

Not had time to subside scientific passion around the famous Yamal crater, as scientists have started talking about a new sensation in the Arctic circle: on the White island, in the Kara sea (this is the most Northern point of Yamal autonomy), abnormal gas bubbles were discovered. The participants in the annual research expedition have not seen anything like that here before. The tundra under their feet suddenly swelled up and began to vibrate like jelly. Scientists have found 12 such air bubbles. Each one of them is about metre in diameter. When a small layer of grass and soil was removed, gas began to come on the surface under pressure. The first studies showed that the concentration of greenhouse gases — carbon dioxide and methane — reads off scale. This incident for Yamal can be considered as a phenomenon, scientists say. Such a "swelling" of the land is typical rather for more southern areas, but in permafrost it is an alarm occasion.

BREAKING: Robert De Niro was clearly threatened by the vaccine establishment to censor the VAXXED documentary from Tribeca... new details emerge

There has never been an assault against a documentary film in the history of America like the one we've just witnessed over the last 48 hours. The entire mainstream media waged a coordinated, simultaneous attack against the Tribeca Film Festival to censor a film none of them had even seen.

That film, of course, is called VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, and it documents the admission of the CDC's Dr. William Thompson, who admitted taking part in a massive scientific fraud to conceal the truth about vaccines causing autism.

These Beekeepers Are Saving the Forest and Producing Honey at the Same Time

By Christina Sarich

Zimbabwe’s beekeepers won’t let you go near their forest. Hundreds of their beehives are hidden within a dense patch of forest along the river in the Mpudzi Resettlement, and the beekeepers watch out for the trees just as vehemently as their bees.

They need to, since the country’s forests have been dwindling rapidly due to tobacco farmers cutting them down for wood to cure their crop. With this practice, the bees’ habitat is also destroyed...

BEX ALERT - Greenland loses a trillion tonnes of ice in four years - compared to 90 billion tonnes a year during the last century

It’s no news that Greenland is in serious trouble — but now, new research has helped quantify just how bad its problems are. Asatellite study, published last week in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, suggests that the Greenland ice sheet lost a whopping 1 trillion tonnes of ice between the years 2011 and 2014 alone. And a big portion of it came from just five glaciers, about which scientists now have more cause to worry than ever.

Study: Glyphosate proves incredibly hazardous to women, affecting fertility while promoting uterine cancer

The researchers found that the rats who were exposed to GBH showed signs of morphological changes in their uteri from exposure as early as a week after being born. The GBH group also showed altered expression of the proteins responsible for uterine organo-genetic differentiation. This is very significant, and can mean changes in the form of embryos, such as birth deformities or being born with three ears, for example. It was also shown to affect their organs.

The findings led the researchers to conclude that glyphosate exposure affects female fertility, and could even promote the development of uterine cancer. In addition, glyphosate herbicides can disrupt the endocrine function of prepubescent rats, which indicates that the chemicals are likely endocrine disruptors.

“The several military missions have agreed upon future military operations against Japan. They covet no gain for themselves and have no thought of territorial expectation. It is their purpose that Japan shall be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the first World War in 1914, and that all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, such as Manchuria, Formosa, and the Pescadores, shall be restored to the Republic of China. Japan will also be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed. The aforesaid three great powers, mindful of the enslavement of the people of Korea, are determined that in due course Korea shall become free and independent.”

BEX TRASH ALERT! Donald Trump Gets AIDS In A New Movie, And That Has Studio Execs In A Panic

Huffpo has advocated the assassination of Donald Trump. I hope the place gets closed down and the editors arrested. Huffpo sees nothing wrong with getting rid of the 2nd amendment. They have abused the first horribly!

Audiences at screenings around the world, and some even in the United States, have been cheering and applauding a macabre scene in a new film by Sacha Baron Cohen in which “Donald Trump” accidentally contracts HIV.

“The Brothers Grimsby“ opens March 11 in the U.S., though chances are you’re learning that for the first time here, given a decision by Sony Pictures to limit its marketing of the satiric comedy. The studio is concerned about the reaction from the real Donald Trump, according to industry sources familiar with the situation.

Third-party evidence for Apollo Moon landings

Third-party evidence for Apollo Moon landings is evidence, or analysis of evidence, about Moon landings that does not come from either NASA or the U.S. government (the first party), or the Apollo Moon landing hoax theorists (the second party). This evidence serves as independent confirmation of NASA's account of the Moon landings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Today is the 47th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. I wondered what to post as a celebration, but no matter what I post it would result in the usual flood of emails and phone calls from propagandists trying to make the independent media look like nuts by claiming the Apollo landings were faked; part of a campaign to try to lure Amerians back to the Soma of ABCNNBCBSFOX. So, I chose this article about all the other nations (not all of whom are friendly to the US at the moment) who have used their satellites to image the Apollo landing sites.

For myself, I personally participated in the LRRR experiment when I was at Table Mountain Observatory, as well as proton luminescent studies of rock samples returned by Apollo 12, along with pieces from the Surveyor III camera which are now on display at the Smithsonian (another reminder of how old I am getting!)

Why Aren’t We as Enraged About Vaccine Deaths as We are About Gun Deaths?

One type of death—gun—is targeted to be dealt with publicly, while the other—vaccine deaths—are totally disregarded and apparently considered ‘normal collateral damage’ necessary to protect ‘herd immunity’.

What’s wrong with such mental perceptions? Innocent lives are impacted by both types of deaths! What happens when it’s your child?

According to Page 5 of the HRSA Vaccine Payout Schedule [1], we see that 1,197 deaths from vaccines have been reported since October 1, 1988 to July 1, 2016. Granted, it’s not 30,000 per year but, if people are concerned about deaths perpetrated by others, shouldn’t there be more concern about vaccinees’ lives too?

And yet, seemingly, there’s no one in HHS, CDC, FDA or federal bureaucrats doing anything to expose the problems of vaccines causing deaths or even the fraudulent science that goes on in those agencies, especially at the CDC [2]. Something is tragically wrong!

How Your Tax Dollars Are Used Against You by Promoting Obesity and Disease

Poor health is typically the result of a metabolically inappropriate diet. Many studies have confirmed that processed foods and sugary beverages are significant contributors to obesity and chronic disease, including cancer.

Unfortunately, while the U.S. government appears to be concerned about rising obesity and disease statistics, it has done virtually nothing to address its own role.

Subsidizing corn and soy is about as smart as subsidizing tobacco when it comes to public health, but when our federal government is run by dominate corporations - what else would you expect?

Urban Farmers Targeted By City, Issued Multiple Threats After Their Property Was Vandalized

'It's Working:' New Analysis Shows Insurers Losing Tens of Millions Annually on Obamacare

Via John Sexton, here's a Politico report on the 'Affordable' Care Act's unstable, unsustainable status quo:

For the insurance companies doing business in the state–the ones issuing policies to those 600,000 people–Obamacare has turned into a financial sinkhole. United Health Group, the nation’s largest insurance company, is pulling out of the Obamacare business in North Carolina next year. Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, which dominated the individual market with more than a half-million customers, reported that losses on its Obamacare business in 2014 and 2015 topped $400 million. The insurer said that figure includes government payments designed to shield insurers from big losses during the early years of Obamacare. The only other current competitor, Aetna, wants to hike rates by nearly 25 percent next year...

Congress Passes Opioid Bill — While Entirely Ignoring New Studies Showing Cannabis Kills Pain

By Justin Gardner

Congress is patting itself on the back after passing the Comprehensive Addiction & Recovery Act (CARA) and sending it to Obama’s desk. The “overwhelmingly bipartisan” bill is meant to address the opioid epidemic currently gripping the U.S.

It was an easy one for congressmen to brag about to their constituency, but the legislation is notable for its failure perhaps more so than its achievement. Namely, the failure to recognize medical cannabis as part of a viable alternative for treating chronic pain, and failure to call out the role of Big Pharma in getting the nation hooked on opioids...

Study: Asthma attacks linked to fracking in Pa.

A new study found that asthma patients in Pennsylvania living near unconventional natural gas developments, also known as fracking, were up to four times more likely to experience an asthma attack.

The study, released Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, classified asthma exacerbation into three categories: mild or needing medication, moderate or needing an emergency room visit, or severe, needing hospitalization.

Asthma patients living close to more or bigger natural gas wells had a higher risk of attacks in all three asthma stages, said lead author Sara Rasmussen, a Ph.D candidate at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Researchers found that the greater risk showed up in all four phases of well development: pad preparation, drilling, stimulation — the actual fracturing — and production.

Sun Exposure: Cancer Cause or Part of the Solution?

Article Summary

Sunlight is not the primary cause of skin cancer. In fact, sunlight actually prevents cancer! There is considerable evidence that shows vitamin D (which is produced from the sun’s rays) is protective of many cancers ? including melanoma.

At a 2012 conference, Dr. Daniel Coit, surgical oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), shared his startling research on melanoma: that melanoma is directly related to family history and that most melanomas are not related to sun exposure, and therefore sunblock or avoiding sun exposure does not prevent melanoma.

Other studies have also shown that sun exposure does not cause melanoma, and that the use of sunscreen can actually increase the risk.

Why Do We Pretend to Clean Up Ocean Oil Spills? Many scientists describe such efforts as 'prime-time theatre.' Yet the farce continues.

In many respects, society's theatrical response to catastrophic oil spills resembles the way medical professionals respond to aggressive cancer in an elderly patient. Because surgery is available, it is often used. Surgery also creates the impression that the health-care system is doing something even though it can't change or reverse the patient's ultimate condition. In an oil-based society, the cleanup delusion is also irresistible. Just as it is difficult for us to acknowledge the limits of medical intervention, society struggles to acknowledge the limits of technologies or the consequences of energy habits. And that's where the state of marine oil spill response sits today: it creates little more than an illusion of a cleanup. Scientists -- outside the oil industry -- call it "prime-time theatre" or "response theatre."

The applications for such a device, referred to as “the sound of silence,” for education are evident. One could conceivably download to one’s brain information that otherwise would have to be delivered via a classroom lecture or by reading a textbook.

Trump is either a phony or he just set himself up. Ala JFK AND LBJ!

And a war on terror neocon

Although unconfirmed by the Trump campaign, it is being reported that the candidate has chosen Indian Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate.
If true, this will be problematic for Donald Trump and his criticism of globalist trade and the neocon wars.

Death by Guns Contrasted Against Death by Vaccines

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Please be forewarned. I’m going to go where no one probably has gone before or probably will attempt to go again. However, after reading statistics about gun deaths in the USA and how they are spun in order to gain gun control and negate the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, I feel perhaps something’s just not quite cricket, so I’d like to know if readers think the same.

Furthermore, if one Constitutional Amendment is negated, that sets the stage that all can be lost! Ever think of that? Do we want that?

Recently a reader emailed me the Rense.com article “Gun Control Facts You’ll Never Hear.” Knowing how statistics are spun in general, I began to appreciate there’s an agenda for controlling the population’s perception and also what’s been called “problem-reaction-solution”—the apparent solution being a preprogrammed end result impacting special interests’ agendas, e.g., total gun control...

Nursing Student Kicked Out College For Refusing to Lie about Vaccines

Nichole Rolfe, formerly Nichole Bruff, was a nursing student at Baker College in Michigan who dreamt of being a nurse practitioner of midwifery before the nursing department’s director dismissed her–shortly before she was to graduate–after Rolfe questioned instructors who were teaching students to lie to patient’s in order to coerce them into getting vaccinated.

Turkey army says has taken power over country

The Turkish army says it has taken power over the country and that the rule of law must remain a priority.

"The power in the country has been seized in its entirety," said a military statement read on NTV television, without giving further details.

Turkish military seizes state power according to media reports; jets flyover Ankara, Istanbul’s bridges closed

The Turkish military has reportedly released a statement to Reuters confirming they are in control of the government.
Turkish military aircraft were also reported flying low over the capital of Ankara late on Friday evening (July 15), according to Agence France-Presse.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim claims part of the military is attempting to overtake the country.

Yildirim added that it would be wrong to refer to the attempt as a coup, but denounced the "illegal attempt" to seize power by "a group" in the military.

"This is a mutiny attempt. We will not let this attempt win. We will uphold democracy," he said on Turkish NTV.

Official: 6 of 7 Remaining Obamacare Co-Ops on the Brink

Six of the seven Obamacare co-ops that are still in operation are currently on corrective action plans, according to an official from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The Illinois Department of Insurance announced this week that it was requesting an order of rehabilitation for the state’s Land of Lincoln Health co-op because of its unsustainable financial position. The co-op was originally awarded $160.2 million by CMS.

This closing announcement has brought the number of failed co-ops from 15, which was reported earlier this week, to 16.

Kevin Counihan, a top official for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services, told lawmakers on Wednesday that of the seven co-ops that are still in operation, six have been placed on corrective action plans. Co-ops are flagged for these plans when the agency has identified issues with the co-ops finances, operations, compliance or management processes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though this program is going to be yet another of Obama's "epic fail legacies".

It was never truly sustainable in the first place; and people who lose their coverage when these go under will be in one hell of a world of hurt, particularly if they have pre-existing conditions.

Sorry, Flint, Congress Has Nothing For You

Congress is set to adjourn for the summer without approving any of the big aid initiatives that had been discussed for Flint, Michigan.

Flint’s water has been tainted with lead since the state of Michigan switched the city’s water source to the Flint River in 2014 without following proper treatment protocols. The new water corroded the city’s lead pipes, and last fall research showed lead levels spiking in Flint kids’ blood. Lead is a dangerous toxin that can cause all kinds of health problems, including miscarriages and irreversible brain damage in children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single leader, from Flint's Mayor and City Council, to Michigan's Congressional Representatives, should be sued out of their positions, for having recklessly endangering the people of Flint, and do hard jail time for what they have allowed to happen to this city, and particularly to their children.

What Flint needs to do is appeal to the UN for funds to fix the problem, and the assignment of a water engineering specialist to make sure that the problem gets fixed correctly; that should embarrass the hell out of the state, the city fathers, and DC, which, on this issue, they richly deserve.

Clean, uncontaminated water should be a basic human right in this country, period, end of discussion.

Millions Of Tons Of Garbage Are Swirling In The Pacific Ocean “Trash Vortex”

By Brianna Acuesta

In the North Pacific, there is a sort of “trash vortex,” sometimes referred to as the great garbage patch, due to the diverging of ocean currents that have an estimated 13lbs of plastic per 2.2lbs of plankton. It swirls around “like a clock” in the ocean, along with other garbage, dead fish, and birds. Much of that plastic will not break down for generations after the people who threw them away...

Mike Pence, Trump’s likely running mate, has backed every free trade deal in the last 15 years

A horrible choice!

There are multiple reports that Mike Pence will be Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidate. If he is, how will he explain away his support for the very same free trade deals that Trump has been bashing for more than a year?

Pence, like most economic conservatives, has been a staunch supporter of these deals—in particular, he backs the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade deal negotiated by the Obama administration with twelve nations around the Pacific rim.

Pence also defended the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and voted for the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) and continued trade with China during his 14 years in Congress.

Scientists Create Invisibility Cloak Made Of Nano-Sized Particles

Researchers from QMUL’s School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, worked with UK industry to demonstrate for the first time a practical cloaking device that allows curved surfaces to appear flat to electromagnetic waves. While the research might not lead to the invisibility cloak made famous in J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter novels quite yet, this practical demonstration could result in a step-change in how antennas are tethered to their platform. It could allow for antennas in different shapes and sizes to be attached in awkward places and a wide variety of materials.

The Delusion ‘I Am Not Responsible’

One of the many interesting details to be learned by understanding human psychology is how a person’s unconscious fear works in a myriad of ways to make them believe that they bear no responsibility for a particular problem.

This psychological dysfunctionality cripples a substantial portion of the human population in ways that work against the possibility of achieving worthwhile outcomes for themselves, other individuals, communities and the world as a whole. In an era when human extinction is now a likely near-term outcome of this dysfunctionality, it is obviously particularly problematic. So why does this happen and how does it manifest?

Toddler injected with 37 vaccines before the age of two left paralyzed and wheelchair-bound for life

At just 17 months of age, Otto Coleman's life changed drastically and suddenly. After receiving a shocking number of vaccines – 37 to be exact – he ended up being paralyzed with transverse myelitis, and will spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.

His father, Joshua Coleman, said that he took a close look at his son's vaccination records and was startled by what he found. "At seventeen months old, he had received thirty-seven vaccines, which is about three times the amount I got in my entire adult life."

House Passes GMO Labeling Bill, Obama Set To Sign

By Derrick Broze

A controversial bill that will prevent states from creating their own labeling standards for genetically engineered foods has passed the House of Representatives and now heads to President Obama’s desk.

On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure aimed at creating a federal standard for labeling genetically engineered or modified foods. Genetically modified or engineered seeds are engineered to have certain traits, such as resistance to herbicides. The majority of the United States’ corn and soybean crops are now GE, including a large portion that is used for animal feed...

Breaking: Renowned Holistic Doctor Found Stabbed to Death in Her Palo Alto Home

It is with heavy hearts that we announce yet another death in our tragic unintended series of holistic doctor deaths, Jenny Shi. In one short year, there have been over 50 deaths.

A well known holistic doctor/acupuncturist’s body was recently found inside her upscale Creekside Drive home, Palo Alto Police confirmed on Tuesday. Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office found the cause of death to be multiple stab wounds on the autopsy, officials said.

“Police department officials said they have no significant leads but noted there is no major threat to the community” (ya right- just a killer on the loose- why do they always say that?).

“In a city that averages fewer than one homicide a year, the gruesome crime in one of its quiet neighborhoods has left residents shaken.”

“It’s a real family-oriented, pleasant neighborhood,” said Robert Adams, who has lived in the area two years. “Homicides are not normal.”

'Extinct' volcano near Rome is waking up and entering a new eruptive cycle

A volcano near Rome thought to be extinct appears to be waking up and entering a new eruptive cycle, geologists have said. While Colli Albani is not expected to erupt for at least another 1,000 years, when it does it could be as destructive as Mount Vesuvius, which destroyed the ancient city of Pompeii in 79 DA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No doubt this announcement will be followed by a request for a larger research grant to study the problem!

The Reasons Why The Globalists Are Destined To Lose

By Brandon Smith

Under the surface of almost every sociopolitical and economic event in the world there burns an ever-raging, but often unseen, war. This war, for now, is fought with fiction and with truth, with journalistic combat and with quiet individual deeds. It is defined by two sides which could not be more philosophically or spiritually separate.

On one side is a pervasive network of corporate moguls and elites, banking entities, international financial consortiums, think tanks and political puppets. They work tirelessly to reshape public psychology and society as a whole into something they sometimes call the “New World Order;” a completely and scientifically centralized planet in which they control every aspect of government, trade, life and even moral compass. I often refer to them simply as the “Globalists,” which is how they at times refer to themselves.

Extended Blackouts: Power Grid Completely Vulnerable to Sabotage: “America Could Go Dark”

The 21st Century is run off of electricity, and in the United States, that electric grid is woefully out of date – and that has left the country quite vulnerable.

The U.S. electric system is in danger of widespread blackouts lasting days, weeks or longer through the destruction of sensitive, hard-to-replace equipment.

“Virtually any region would suffer major, extended blackouts if more than three key substations were destroyed.”

The Trumpster is right: Ruth Bader Ginsburg's 'mind is shot' because she was brain damaged by chemotherapy in 2009... (and hasn't been able to think straight since)

Three days ago, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg went on a discombobulated verbal rampage against Donald Trump, calling him a "faker" and claiming that if he were elected president, "then everything is up for grabs."

She then went on to declare that everybody should "move to New Zealand" where, apparently, they can all wear their liberal tin foil hats together while America finally builds a wall to keep them all out.

But what almost nobody seems to remember about all this is that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was brain damaged by chemotherapy in 2009. As this NY Daily News story explains, she underwent chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer that year.

Des Moines Register: Is it GMO? "Smart labels" aren't enough

And we should have the right to know when a food product contains genetically engineered (GE) ingredients, especially as they carry greater and greater residues of this probable cancer causing chemical. Some states such as Vermont, Connecticut and Maine have voted to mandate this labeling. But Congress is trying to preempt these states from giving their citizens what they have asked for.

The latest ploy is so-called “smart labels.” This is the most recent attempt by big agribusiness, the giant food processors and members of Congress who submit to their lobbying pressure to keep customers in the dark about what’s in our food. Instead of a simple declaration in plain language on the product, a smart label will require scanning each item with a smart phone. Besides the unbelievable time and inconvenience involved, many Americans don’t have smart phones and can’t afford them. More than half of rural Americans don’t have smart phones, let alone the network coverage required to access the information.

It’s Official: Robots Are Now Injuring And Killing Humans

By Nicholas West

Even as robotics experts, universities and tech luminaries sound the alarm about the potential for a future filled with killer robots, this technology evidently already has arrived … minus the stringent ethics.

There can be no debate about the use of killer robots in the military. We are in the middle of an admitted global drone arms race in which there are mass civilian casualties occurring under a specious U.S. legal framework that has thus far not even excluded its own citizens from being targeted for assassination. There is also a host of ground- and sea-based systems that are equally lethal and continue to be tested in massive joint military exercises.

Then there is the artificial intelligence contained in autonomous vehicles and security robots...
