Big Pharma’s toxic drugs will kill over 45,000% more people than global warming by the year 2100, scientists discover … Media SILENT

According to the Daily Mail, the researchers believe that hotter temperatures will cause an increase in the speed of the chemical reactions that cause air pollutants, and that as areas become increasingly drier, there will be less rain to remove these pollutants. These higher temperatures will also cause trees to emit more organic pollutants.

The study predicts that this toxic combination will result in killer smog that will kill 260,000 people across the globe (with the exception of Africa) by 2100.

...

Based on the aforementioned average, by the year 2100, 122,762,000 people will have been killed by Big Pharma – a number that is more than 45,000 percent higher than the number of people predicted to die from so-called global warming.

This begs the question: Why is the media silent? Who will speak for the millions who have died and will continue to die at the hands of the greedy pharmaceutical giants?

Justice Department Looks To ‘Strengthen’ Forensic Science Guidelines

The Justice Department will begin work on two projects centered around improving forensic science practices amid nationwide concerns over certain kinds of forensic evidence presented in criminal trials.

On Monday at a private gathering of forensics professionals in Atlanta, Georgia, US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that the DOJ will revive a project aimed at setting federal guidelines for what forensic scientists can say in court.

Human ‘Body Farm’ For Decomposing Corpses Could Be Set Up To Help Police Solve Murder Cases

Britain’s first body farm, where researchers study decaying human corpses to help police solve murder cases, could be set up if forensic scientists get the green light from the government.

The US has several such centers to help researchers understand the precise way in which bodies decay in water, in soil, or in open air.

China's Hydro Dominance in Africa and Beyond

The Pen Is mightier than the Sword!

The $4.5 billion scheme, being financed by the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, will be constructed by the state-owned China Gezhouba Group.

When complete around 2023, it will generate 2.2 GW of power from the Kwanza River in North Kwanza province, expected to meet more than half of the country's power needs. Nearly 10,000 local jobs will be created during the peak construction period.

Chinese state-owned conglomerates behind colossal dams like The Three Gorges and some of the world's highest-situated dams on the Tibetan Plateau have flexed their engineering muscles in Africa.

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany .

What the Act says
That's All Folks!

Psychiatric association violates its own ethics, urges members to attack the mental health of Donald Trump … ANYTHING goes

Under the so-called Goldwater rule, it was previously considered an ethical violation for psychiatrists to offer an opinion about the mental health of a public figure that they had not personally examined and evaluated, and without that person’s consent.

In 1964, U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater, an Arizona Republican, lost the presidential election to incumbent Democrat Lyndon Johnson in a landslide victory.

The Goldwater rule was adopted that same year, when psychiatrists responded to a survey about Goldwater’s psychological fitness to serve. About 50 percent of the respondents indicated that Goldwater, who was demonized by the media (sound familiar?) during the election campaign, was unfit to serve, without ever having examined him.

Fast-forward to 2017: Apparently many shrinks seem to be obsessed with Trump and apparently aren’t able to help themselves.

Violent shooter video games really DO rot your brain: Frequent players have less gray matter, study reveals

Researchers at the University of Montreal got around 100 people to play a range of popular 'shooter' games such as Call Of Duty, Killzone and Borderlands 2 for a total of 90 hours.

They also gave them copes of non-violent games from the Super Mario series.

By the end of the study, they found that people who habitually played action games had fewer neurons in their hippocampus, a key memory center in the brain.

However, those who played non-violent games ended the study with more essential gray matter in their brains.

University develops miracle device that can heal organs and tissue in a ‘fraction of a second’

Ohio State University has developed a breakthrough technology called tissue nanotransfection, also called TNT, that allows for the healing of damaged tissue as quickly as a “fraction of a second,” according to researchers.
USA Today reported Monday the process starts with a silicone chip no bigger than a dime that is placed on the surface of the skin of a living body. A strong electric field is then applied across the device, which then delivers genes to the skin cells beneath it, morphing them into different kinds of cells.

AMI Smart Meter Politics: Can Pennsylvania Pass Into Law An Opt-Out Bill Just Introduced?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The good people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have been deprived of their U.S. and State Constitutional rights regarding the forced imposition along with aggravated harassment by utility companies of those who stood their rights for refusing an AMI Smart Meter because the law enacted (Act 129 of 2008) was written as an Opt-In bill/law.

However, many people are chomping at the bit about what’s going on in Pennsylvania and there’s been a new set of bills affecting AMI Smart Meters introduced in to the House Consumer Affairs Committee. Below is an overview of what’s happened in the past so previous bills wouldn’t be enacted, plus information why there has to be an investigation into the chairman of that committee...

Rare Earths Are China's Most Potent Weapon In A Trade War

In October 1973, the world shuddered when the Arab members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries imposed an oil embargo on the United States and other nations that provided military aid to Israel in the Yom Kippur war. At the same time, they ramped up prices.

The United States realized it was dependent on imported oil — and much of that came from the Middle East, with Saudi Arabia the big swing producer. It shook the nation. How had a few foreign powers put a noose around the neck of the world’s largest economy?

Well, it could happen again and very soon. The commodity that could bring us to our knees isn’t oil, but rather a group of elements known as rare earths, falling between 21 and 71 on the periodic table.

Federal Court Dismisses US Veterans’ Lawsuit Over Burn Pits

The long, sad story of burn pits has included years of US veterans facing major health ramifications from being stationed near the pits, breathing in the toxic fumes from them. With studies showing the open burning of munitions and waste was wildly dangerous, you’d think this would be a slam dunk for a lawsuit.

That’s not the case, however, as US District Court Judge Roger Titus has dismissed a lawsuit by veterans and family members related to the health problems, and even deaths, caused by the burn pits, saying there was no way to hold anyone accountable for it.

The burn pit problem has been well documented for several years, but Titus insisted the lawsuit against KBR could not proceed, because the military contractor which ran the burn pits didn’t get to decide where to position them, that being a military decision.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, cynically, have to wonder: just how much of Judge Titus' portfolio is invested directly in KBR, or other members of the military/industrial complex, to the point where he believe (and rightly) that allowing this law suit to go forward would be a slippery slope, opening the door to other lawsuits, which would destroy his portfolio's value horrifically?!? And if, in fact, that was the case, did he not have the moral and legal obligation to recuse himself from the case?!?

The lawyers for those who brought this case forward should have known if this was true, and demanded that another judge try the case because the judge would have been economically biased against the plaintiffs, if that reality existed.

Apparently, in his bitterly cold, sang-foid appraisal, those Vets killed or maimed for life due to proximity to these burn pits, were simply "collateral damage" to the military process, and irrelevant, expendable human beings anyway, so they, and their families, were utterly unworthy of any compensation whatsoever, due to the damage their proximity to these burn pits caused.

Tortured logic serves the military industrial complex, and their profit margins, quite nicely, and this decision is a brilliant demonstration of this kind of soulless, mental exercise.

Duterte’s ‘golden age’ of infrastructure hits the peso

Gee! Wonder who is manipulating the Peso. The NWO Boys don't like this guy.

While the peso’s dip is raising eyebrows in a region where the Thai baht and the Malaysian ringgit are flirting with multi-year highs, it’s come mainly because the Philippines, one of the world’s fastest growing economies, has been enjoying a construction boom.

Besides private construction, companies like Teravera are confident of more contracts coming from the government’s drive to upgrade its dilapidated roads, railways, ports and airports, which have been a drag on the economy.

The 10 worst health HOAXES pushed as “science” over the last 100 years

When a trend goes viral, millions of Americans “board that train” without giving it a second thought; however, come to find out, most of these massively popular trends aren’t trends at all, but rather propaganda-led health Ponzi schemes that have led millions of “sheeple” (people who act like ignorant sheep) off their own health cliff. Long before the internet, and even before television, science demons (evil humans in white lab coats) were hard at work inventing ways to slowly poison Americans with chemical-based food and chemical-laced medicine, and they needed marketing experts to fool the public with catchy tag lines and slogans that could be plastered all over print media.

New Monsanto Emails Raise Questions On Safety Of RoundUp Products

Court deals major blow to veterans suing military contractor KBR

A federal judge has dismissed a major lawsuit against a defense contractor by veterans and their family members over burn pit operations in Iraq and Afghanistan that plaintiffs said caused them chronic and sometimes deadly respiratory diseases and cancer.

The dismissal — the second by Titus in the case — deals a major blow to the more than 700 veterans, family members and former KBR employees who brought the suit.Plaintiffs were disappointed, and some were furious.

“My husband is DEAD because of burn pits,” Dina McKenna, whose husband, former Army Sgt. William McKenna, died in 2010 from a rare form of T-cell lymphoma after serving in Iraq, told McClatchy in an email. “I want someone to be held accountable.”

Natural Antioxidant Prevents Severe Flu

By Mae Chan

Microbes that live in the gut don’t just digest food. They also have far-reaching effects on the immune system. Now, a new study shows that a particular gut microbe can prevent severe flu infections, likely by breaking down naturally occurring compounds — called flavonoids — commonly found in foods such as black tea, red wine and blueberries.

Strong evidence from several studies have shown that individuals consuming fruits and vegetables rich in different flavonoids have a reduced risk of overall mortality and of several chronic diseases...

Monsanto is facing over 100 lawsuits in a Federal district court in San Francisco brought by people who attribute their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma to exposure to glyphosate in Monsanto’s Roundup weed-killer, and as part of the discovery process, it submitted internal documents to the court that detailed shenanigans in the company’s internal science and its dealings with regulators and the press.

Factory chickens grown in the U.S. are too heavy to stand on their own feet; meat begins ROTTING even before they’re killed

The American poultry industry is largely controlled by big agricultural firms, and some whistleblower farmers have provided some chilling insight into the lives of these poor animals.

One North Carolina farmer says that because the birds are bred for breast meat, they are too heavy to stand up and must spend their entire lives squatting. He likens them to “two toothpicks sticking out of a grape.” This position places them on the litter 95 percent of the time, which he describes as a mixture of pine shavings and fecal matter from the current flock as well as those that preceded it. Infections on the underside of their chests from contact with the filthy litter are common, with around 1,000 of the 30,000 chickens he raises every six weeks dying before reaching maturity.

He says, “Their flesh would rot and, when you have them crammed in so tight, they will walk over other birds if they want to get to the food or scratch the others and cause a wound. It is awful.”

1.8 million California acres were set aside for frogs. Ranchers say decision ignores them

Tiny frogs and toads used to swarm over the Sierra Nevada. Now, the government says nearly 2 million acres of land needs to be preserved to prevent them from going extinct.

California ranchers and logging groups say those protections are hurting their ability to make a living. So another conflict over the Endangered Species Act is going to court.

The California Farm Bureau and two ranchers’ associations sued the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Monday, challenging a year-old decision to designate more than 1.8 million acres of rural California as “critical habitat” for three species of frogs and toads that are protected by the Endangered Species Act.

Loggers and ranchers who harvest timber or graze cattle on public lands worry the new restrictions on land use will eventually make it more difficult – if not impossible – to make a living in the Sierra, said Shaun Crook, a Tuolumne County cattle rancher whose family also owns a logging company.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but 1.8 million acres.... for an endangered species of frog... sounds like overkill to me, so I have to wonder: was this done, in order to stop loggers and ranchers from being able to work the land, and put them out of business?!?

McMaster solidifies power at NSC — and supports Iran deal, sees Israel as occupier

Updated. Last night President Trump issued a statement affirming his support for National Security adviser H.R. McMaster in the face of a storm of criticism from rightwing outlets. The statement is a sign that Trump and his new chief of staff are taking the realist side of the debate inside his administration over foreign policy.

So while Trump claims to be doing everything he can to trash the Iran deal, the good news is that his foreign policy team is for it. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson clearly advocated for the deal at a press briefing earlier this week, while suggesting that he could differ with the president on how effective it’s been.

Police departments forced to take back hundreds of officers fired for misconduct

Since 2006, the nation’s largest police departments have fired at least 1,881 officers for misconduct that betrayed the public’s trust, from cheating on overtime to unjustified shootings. But The Washington Post has found that departments have been forced to reinstate more than 450 officers after appeals required by union contracts.

A San Antonio police officer caught on a dash cam challenging a handcuffed man to fight him for the chance to be released was reinstated in February. In the District, an officer convicted of sexually abusing a young woman in his patrol car was ordered returned to the force in 2015. And in Boston, an officer was returned to work in 2012 despite being accused of lying, drunkenness and driving a suspected gunman from the scene of a nightclub killing.

More than 800 children given sex change drugs on NHS

Young people who are convinced they are living in the wrong body are receiving hormonal injections to stop the onset of puberty and make sex change operations easier.

According to a Mail on Sunday investigation more than 600 children were undergoing treatment from the NHS' Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) clinic in London, and a further 200 in Leeds.

The lower age limit of 16 was scrapped in 2014 meaning any child in the early stages of puberty with gender dysphoria can now be considered for treatment - meaning some children as young as 10 are eligible.

Smartphones and Social Media Causing Mental Health Disaster with Children

Even when a seismic event—a war, a technological leap, a free concert in the mud—plays an outsize role in shaping a group of young people, no single factor ever defines a generation. Parenting styles continue to change, as do school curricula and culture, and these things matter. But the twin rise of the smartphone and social media has caused an earthquake of a magnitude we’ve not seen in a very long time, if ever. There is compelling evidence that the devices we’ve placed in young people’s hands are having profound effects on their lives—and making them seriously unhappy.

More war and any ole war will do.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said Saturday the threat of North Korea launching a nuclear weapon at the U.S. or another rival nation is “impossible to overstate” and repeated that a preemptive military strike remains an option.

“It’s impossible to overstate the danger associated with a rogue, brutal regime,” McMaster told Hugh Hewitt on the conservative commentator’s MSNBC TV show.

“Are we preparing a plan for a preventive war? … The president has been very clear that he’s not going to tolerate North Korea being able to threaten the U.S. … So of course we have to provide all options to do that, and that includes a military option,” McMaster said.

Cut the Americans off from space? Here’s how Russia might respond to new US sanctions

There is one area where the Kremlin can markedly damage Washington’s interests, without much economic pain. And that’s in the realm of space. Because since the shuttle Atlantis staged its last flight, in 2011, NASA has been entirely reliant on Soyuz launchers to reach the cosmos. Should Putin decide to cancel agreements where Americans hitch a ride on Russian-led trips, for the first time in decades, US astronauts will be completely earth bound.

Also, the cost to Russia wouldn’t be much. At $80 million a seat, dropping Americans from the flights won’t break the bank. Plus, to make matters worse for the US, Boeing, which is developing its own proposed rival to Soyuz, is reliant on Russian rocket engines.

Perseid Meteor Shower 2017: When, Where & How to See It

The peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower is coming in just a few weeks! According to NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke, the Perseids are perhaps the most popular meteor shower of the year. Typical rates are about 80 meteors an hour, but in outburst years (such as in 2016) the rate can be between 150-200 meteors an hour. The meteor shower's actual peak is around 1 p.m. EDT Aug. 12, which means that the night before and the night after will both have good rates; Cooke said the show would be slightly better in the predawn hours of Aug. 12, but that there'd be a decent show both nights.

In 2017, the Perseids will be a little more difficult to see due to the presence of the moon, which will be three-quarters full and will rise shortly before the shower hits its peak around midnight local time.

IT’S BEEN EXACTLY 80 YEARS SINCE THE US DECLARED WAR ON WEED — AND WEED IS STILL WINNING

The government fought cannabis — and cannabis won.

This Wednesday is the eightieth anniversary of the first major action the federal government took against cannabis in the United States, and eight decades later, that same federal government has still failed to reduce Americans’ consumption of the plant. In fact, it’s on the rise.

Long before the era of prohibition, druggists used cannabis as a medicine. According to Origins, a joint publication by the Ohio State University and Miami University history departments:

“Cannabis, like opiates and cocaine, was freely available at drug stores in liquid form and as a refined product, hashish. Cannabis was also a common ingredient in turn-of-the-century patent medicines, over-the-counter concoctions brewed to proprietary formulas.”

Monsanto leaks suggest it tried to ‘kill’ cancer research about notorious weed killer

Controversial agricultural giant Monsanto attempted to ‘kill’ research on Roundup weed killer, which is suspected of causing cancer, leaked documents show. The company also reportedly influenced EPA officials to conceal information about the cancer risks.
A trove of documents was released by LA-based plaintiff firm Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman earlier in August. The company is representing people who claimed that they or their relatives got cancer due to Monsanto products.

In particular, the case concerns the notorious Roundup, a non-selective herbicide which kills weeds that compete with agricultural crops. Its active ingredient is called glyphosate.

The documents, mostly emails between Monsanto executives and researchers working for or connected with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), are dated between 1999 and 2016.

“MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS”: THE DARK SIDES OF AFGHANISTAN’S MOAB TRAGEDY ARE UNFOLDING

The use of destructive weapon as such could kill several birds with one stone. It earned Donald Trump somewhat uplift in status amid disgraces whirling around White House at that time. It also played a commercial advertisement for purchasers of the US arms, in part for being over-hyped.

In an interview, an Afghan environment protection expert explained that MOAB-like bombs exposes hazardous chemicals into air that causes cancer, respiratory and digestive problems, deformities in babies, strokes, high blood pressure and weakened vision. It severely contaminates food and water that even stay afloat to affect next generation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, I am peacefully, and politely, putting you on notice: in my world, there is no such thing as "collateral damage."

Sir, the reality is we are talking about brother and sister human beings who have been deafened; blinded; hit with aggressive cancers and birth defects; and outright assassinated, in order to control the oil pipelines and mineral deposits in Afghanistan.

We have never had the moral high ground in this war, or at all been on the right side of history; this is why US/NATO troops have lost control of huge amounts of territory to the Taliban.

It is high time, sir, that the US and NATO bring their troops home, as quickly as is safely possible, and negotiate with whatever government left standing in Kabul for the pipeline and mineral rights.

How too much medicine can kill you

During a recent clinic consultation, I saw Mary, in her early 60s, with type 2 diabetes. She was concerned that the muscle pains in her legs may have been a result of the cholesterol-lowering statin drug she was taking. “But I’m scared of stopping it.” She explained how a specialist nurse had told her a clot could break off from her aorta, travel to her brain and cause a massive stroke.

I assured her that even in those with established heart disease, who stand to gain most from taking the drug, the risk of death from stopping the medication for two weeks to see if the side-effects would go was close to 1 in 10,000 .

Unfortunately, such misinformation and fear-mongering is common. One of the root causes is undoubtedly driven by the commercial interests of the pharmaceutical industry.

Once big data systems agglomerate enough data about you to predict whether you are likely to get sick or badly injured, insurers will be able to deny coverage (or charge so much for it that it amounts to the same thing) to anyone who is likely to get sick, forcing everyone who might ever need insurance into medical bankruptcy, and turning Medicaid into a giant "high-risk pool" that taxpayers foot the bill for.

For this to happen, we only need for insurers to have discretion over whom they insure (something they lost under Obamacare) and for insurers to not care too much if they over-exclude a few low-risk people who false-positived into the big data "high-risk" bucket -- when you go fishing with a dragnet, you always get a few dolphins along with your tuna.

The existence of more personal health data and better algorithms for sorting it suggest that private medical insurance is just incompatible with 21st century technology.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why everyone out there needs to educate themselves on nutrition and supplements. Knowledge is power here, folks.

For example, when did your MD happen to mention that magnesium and zinc supplements are effective tools in helping people deal with depression?!?

The Role of magnesium and zinc in depression

Probably never.

When was the last time your family practitioner mentioned the role of turmeric in preventing, and/or treating cancer?!?

Cancer Prevention With Natural Compounds

Probably never.

There are things the medical/industrial complex really doesn't want to concern itself about, because the sicker you get, the more you will opt for their treatments, which generally do not, and cannot, cure.

No Matter How Bad You Thought Big Pharma Was, This is Worse

By Tony Cartalucci

Impropriety among big-pharmaceutical corporations has ranged from multi-billion dollar bribery rackets, to marketing drugs to patients for uses they were never approved for by regulators, to covering up known dangerous side-effects of medications they produce and sell.

More recently, big-pharma has been embroiled in a series of price-gouging controversies over equipment and treatments. This includes the hijacking of and profiteering from a revolutionary new treatment called gene therapy...

MONSANTO'S LAWYERS FORGOT TO ASK A COURT TO SUPPRESS DAMNING EVIDENCE ABOUT CANCER AND CORRUPT SCIENCE

Monsanto is facing over 100 lawsuits in a Federal district court in San Francisco brought by people who attribute their non-Hodgkin's lymphoma to exposure to glyphosate in Monsanto's Roundup weed-killer, and as part of the discovery process, it submitted internal documents to the court that detailed shenanigans in the company's internal science and its dealings with regulators and the press.

Then Monsanto's lawyers neglected to a motion seeking continued protection of the confidential documents, believing that a "a standing confidentiality order" was in place, something that the plaintiff's lawyers disagree with, which is why they released a huge tranche of damning memos.

Aldi pulls eggs from German stores over fipronil poison fear

Supermarket giant Aldi has withdrawn all eggs from sale from its stores in Germany as they may have been contaminated by insecticide.

Tests showed that the chemical fipronil, which can harm people's kidneys, liver and thyroid glands, was found in eggs from the Netherlands.

Fipronil is used to treat lice and ticks in chickens.

One German official said up to 10 million of the contaminated eggs may have been sold in Germany.

Designer baby backlash: Research into editing genes in human embryos should be confined to the lab, warn scientists

Scientists have spoken out to warn against allowing babies to be born with edited genes.

It comes after a world first technique was unveiled to ‘fix’ an embryo’s faulty DNA, which could eventually eradicate genetic diseases like cystic fibrosis and breast cancer.

Amid growing debate that the breakthrough could pave the way for designer babies, international experts have put out a statement which states it would be ‘inappropriate’ for a woman to become pregnant with a genetically altered embryo.

TERMINAL HOSPICE PATIENT EXPOSES TRUTH ABOUT ENSURE “NUTRITION” DRINKS

A few months ago she started having digestive issues and could no longer eat normal food. What hospice workers brought her as meal replacements horrified her.

Krause writes: “Hospice had the very best of intentions, [but] the stuff they sent over was not real FOOD. In fact, I’m outraged at the idea that they feed this stuff to dying people.”

What the hospice provided to Krause was a bag full of products by Ensure: pudding, shakes, and a drink that pretends to be apple juice.

All three are full of chemicals with about as much actual nutritional value as most commercial junk food1 and these drinks are meant to be the nutritional lifeline for people who are extremely sick.

Surprised? Massive Weed Shortage in Nevada Orchestrated by Big Alcohol

This is bizarre.

Las Vegas, NV Ever since recreational cannabis was legalized for retail sale a few weeks ago, dispensaries have had difficulty maintaining their stock and say they will run out if the broken supply chain is not fixed.

We didn't know the demand would be this intense, Al Fasano, co-founder of Las Vegas ReLeaf, told the Los Angeles Times. All of a sudden you have like a thousand people at the door! We have to tell people we are limited in our products.

TFTP spoke to a dispensary owner in Nevada who explained that there is plenty of cannabis to go around. However, thanks to the alcohol distributors who are distributing the cannabis the dispensaries have no product.

Corrosion inhibitor chemical found in thousands of hot dogs, bacon, sausage and processed meat products

A powerful corrosion inhibitor chemical used in wood stove boilers is also deliberately added to most processed meats in the United States, a Natural News investigation has found. Dozens of popular brands of hot dogs, bacon, sausage, lunch meat, sandwich ham and cured meats are sold in grocery stores across America that carry the rust inhibitor chemical known as sodium nitrite.

Sodium nitrite is a known cancer-causing chemical that’s being developed by the USDA as a deadly bait that poisons wild hogs to death. Scientific research shows that it increases the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67%, and any chemist knows that if you combine nitrites with the hydrochloric acid in the stomach and the amino acids found in meat, you get nitrosamines, widely used by the pharmaceutical industry to induce cancer in lab rats so that drug companies can test their cancer drugs.

Trump wants US access to Britain’s food market, and Scotland to forget independence

US President Donald Trump has called for an expansive post-Brexit trade deal with Britain, offering American food producers greater access to the UK market. He also cautioned Scotland against holding a second vote on independence.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump called for one big deal that would “include everything.”

Asked whether such an agreement “could kick in pretty much as soon as Brexit happens,” Trump said “as soon as it’s appropriate to have it kick in, absolutely. And it’ll be a big trade deal - much, much more business than we do right now, many, many times.”

“We have a very good relationship. I have a very good relationship with the prime minister. And we are absolutely looking to do a major trade deal.”

Trump said the “very all-in” deal will involve greater trade in such sectors as financial services and agriculture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word please.

Before we start selling food to the UK, the US must produce food that UK (and US) citizens actually want to eat, which is not sprayed with a known carcinogen, and is hormone and GMO free.

Omega-3 oils found to halt neuroinflammation that leads to Alzheimer’s disease

Past studies have shown that DHA and another omega-3 fatty acid, EPA, help maintain optimal brain health. A study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that omega-3 rich foods like salmon, mackerel, and sardines help prevent the illness by promoting the flow of blood in the parts of the brain responsible for the regulation of learning and memory.

A 2013 study in the same journal found that combining omega-3 fatty acids with vitamin D could enhance the ability of the immune system to eliminate deposits of amyloid plaque in the brain, which are connected to the development of the disease.

One of the world's most lucrative industries, spending on cancer drugs reached an all-time high last year, as it was valued at more than $100 billion. Spending on cancer drugs increased 6.5 percent annually over the past five years and is expected to continue growing at a rate of 8 percent each year through 2018, according to figures provided by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.

That spending is highly concentrated, as the US and five of Europe's largest countries account for nearly two-thirds of the entire market.

Servco Pacific Inc. to break ground on Honolulu's first hydrogen fuel station

On Wednesday, Servco Pacific Inc. Chairman and CEO Mark Fukunaga and Hawaii Gov. David Ige will be among the officials scheduled to break ground on the company's hydrogen station, the first such station to be built on Oahu.

Located at 2850 Pukoloa St., Honolulu, the facility is expected to be completed by early 2018 and will electrolyze water to produce hydrogen on site. The target market for the station will be future owners of the hydrogen-fuel-cell powered Toyota Mirai. Servco first brought that alternative fuel vehicle to the Islands in 2016, making Hawaii the second state in the nation to receive them, and will begin limited sales of the vehicle when the hydrogen station has been built.

Trump: Newly-signed Russia sanctions law ‘significantly flawed’

This is the Man I voted for....finally!

US President Donald Trump says the Russian sanctions law he signed into force is "significantly flawed" and includes unconstitutional provisions which usurp presidential authority.

"Today, I have signed into law HR 3364, the 'Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.' While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed," Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

In its haste to pass the legislation, Congress "included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions," Trump said.

The biggest problem with the bill is that it "encroaches on the executive branch’s authority to negotiate," which will make it harder for the US to strike good deals and will "drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together," according to the president.

Insurers seeking huge premium hikes on ObamaCare plans

Top health insurance companies in numerous states are looking to hike premiums by double-digits – some by roughly 30 percent or more – for ObamaCare plans in 2018, according to newly released figures that could light a fire under stalled efforts on Capitol Hill to fix the program.

“A lot of us have lost focus on the fact that the system we have doesn’t work,” White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday, referring to the proposed premium hikes.

The Wall Street Journal reported that major insurers in Idaho, West Virginia, South Carolina, Iowa and Wyoming are pitching premium hikes averaging 30 percent or higher.

Other states also could see double-digit hikes, including New Mexico, Tennessee and Texas – while elsewhere, insurers are eyeing smaller increases.

TRUMP TARGETS CONGRESS MEMBERS' OWN HEALTH PLANS

The requests are preliminary and could change before insurers strike 2018 agreements with federal officials in the fall.

EXCLUSIVE: Al Gore’s Home Devours 34 Times More Electricity Than Average U.S. Household

Gore’s hypocritical home energy use and “do as I say not as I do” lifestyle has plunged to embarrassing new depths.

In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

It gets worse.

Last September alone, Gore devoured 30,993 kWh of electricity. That’s enough to power 34 average American homes for a month. Over the last 12 months, Gore used more electricity just heating his outdoor swimming pool than six typical homes use in a year.

Do You Think Al Gore Lives By The Principles That He Advocates For?

In fact, the study it goes on to cite, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), only compared the effects of two different dosages of vitamin D administered to children. It did not compare the health of children who were not given vitamin D supplements at all, to those who were.

The title above is a verbatim quote taken from any number of seriously uninformed TV physicians, paid trolls and paid celebrities as they have gleefully joined the popular CDC, WHO, AAP, AAFP and AMA-sponsored campaigns that have denigrated (and therefore infuriated) the witnesses of the hundreds of thousands of over-vaccinated, vaccine-injured, vaccine-disabled or vaccine-killed infants, children, adults and soldiers.

Particularly angered are the parents, siblings, neighbors and other loved ones of the vaccine-traumatized victims, for they

KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT THE VACCINES POISONED THEIR LOVED ONES BECAUSE THEY SAW WHAT WAS HAPPENING BEFORE THEIR VERY EYES.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The medical/industrial complex in this country is NOT about keeping people well; were that the case, we would be educated about nutrition, and certain things would be banned from supermarket shelves.

The US medical/industrial complex is all about keeping people weak and ill enough, to have to keep coming back in for more "treatments' which do not cure. It is about huge amounts of money, not wellness.

So it falls on the individual consumer to educate yourself about diet and nutrition, and know why you are taking the supplements you are taking.

Knowledge is power, particularly in the realm of nutrition.

Public Utility Consumer Abuse For Refusing AMI Smart Meters, PECO Style

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) main surveillance device, the AMI Smart Meter, has caused much grief, fright, concerns and actual bodily harms from non-thermal microwaves emitted by the ZigBee radios in all smart meters in every state. Those harms are called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), plus any of a roster of symptoms that can/may contribute to or exacerbate numerous chronic diseases.

As an EMF/RF science data researcher, I hear from people all over the globe offering personal tales of woe how electric companies, particularly in the USA, have done some nasty things to cause much grief for customers from whom utilities had received no previous problems, not even unpaid bills. But why such rather callous treatment? Well, it all revolves around the retrofitting of AMI Smart Meters on to electric, natural gas and water utility services...

Iran May Start Giving Drugs To Addicts In Effort To End Illegal Drug Trafficking

Defying Western perceptions, however, the Middle Eastern nation recently announced its plans to move toward decriminalizing drugs in order to combat addiction and weaken the power of drug traffickers. If the plan receives final approval, the country will join a handful of other nations that have opted to help addicts rather than punish them.

The Independent reports that “[b]y allowing the government to give out diluted drugs to addicts, the proposal aims to cut the relationship between drug addicts and drug traffickers.”

The plan would allow the government to distribute methadone to addicts in place of heroin, cannabis, and other commonly used drugs in Iran. It would also allow the government to provide addicts with diluted forms of these commonly used drugs to help wean them off the substances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is both an enlightened and humane policy.

Neither the US, or the UK, however, will ever adopt such a policy, as drug money fuels the political machines in both countries.

The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (it’s not the gluten)

Common wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields as the practice allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest.

Pre-harvest application of the herbicide Roundup or other herbicides containing the deadly active ingredient glyphosate to wheat and barley as a desiccant was suggested as early as 1980. It has since become routine over the past 15 years and is used as a drying agent 7-10 days before harvest within the conventional farming community.

US Army Boosts Spending on Genetically Engineered Spider Silk for Body Armor, Underwear

What’s almost as tough as Kevlar, as flexible as silk, has the DNA of a spider but comes from a worm? Something the Army is looking to buy for as much as $1 million.

The U.S. Army is upping its investment in genetically engineered spider silk for body armor. Last year, the service paid almost $100,000 to Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, which makes spider silk that can be produced at scale — with silkworms. On Wednesday, the company announced that the Army will move to the second phase of the contract and will look to Kraig to produce a customized strain of the silk for “high-performance fibers for protective apparel applications.” That is: flexible body armor made from genetically engineered spider silk. The total contract amount would reach $900,000 if parameters are met. Army representatives said that interested in the material purely from a research perspective, for now.

Webmaster's Commentary:

142 people fell ill from fecal contaminated food in UK Muslim restaurant

Last November, I first posted about the disgusting toilet habit of Muslims in “Muslim washes his anus at public drinking fountain in Italy”.

But it’s one thing for Muslims to use their (left) hands, instead of toilet paper, to “clean” their butts after defecating. It’s another thing entirely when Muslim restaurant employees do that and then contaminate food and drinks that they serve to the public, which I chronicled in two subsequent posts:

Vladimir Putin's Great Speech On Russia & Immigration

Ignore the commie remark.

No wonder he was selected by Forbes as the most powerful person in the world. This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.

I would suggest that not only our leaders, but every citizen of USA, should pay attention to this advice. How scary is that?

Iceland Could Be About To Experience A Major Volcanic Eruption

Iceland’s largest volcano, Katla, was just moved to yellow status. But that isn’t all that’s concerning. There have also been over 500 earthquakes in Iceland in the last four days.

Experts now believe that a volcanic eruption that could be quite large, may soon occur in Iceland. A series of 40 small earthquakes occurred just North East of Mount Fagradalsfjall two days ago, with the final one felt in Reykjavik, measuring at almost 4 on the Richter scale. Following tremors at Katla in South Iceland and a glacial river flood in Múlakvísl, the Icelandic Met Office has raised the status of the famous volcano on its “Aviation Colour Code Map for Icelandic Volcanic Systems” from green to yellow. People have even been warned to stay away from the Múlakvísl River because of the odor of sulfur.
