What could go wrong? Genetically modified mosquitoes to swarm Houston in latest Zika hoax lunacy

So far, there have been no actual trials involving GM mosquitoes in the United States. A planned trial in the Florida Keys last fall never materialized because residents there expressed concern about the genetic engineering, which led to local officials canceling a proposed trial there.

What’s even more bizarre is that officials in Harris County, which is home to Houston, note there have been no documented cases of Zika virus being transmitted locally. In fact, the only Texas cases at all have been in Cameron County, which borders Mexico.

Blaming conservatives, Trump signals new openness to Dems

WASHINGTON >> President Donald Trump today attacked conservative lawmakers for the failure of the Republican bill to replace former President Barack Obama’s health care law, as aides signaled a greater willingness to work with moderate Democrats on upcoming legislative battles from the budget and tax cuts to health care.

On Twitter, Trump complained: “Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!”

How many African Green Monkeys are infected, euthanized and then organ harvested each year to make FDA-approved vaccines?

Now that it’s been proven that vaccine manufacturers harvest kidney cells from African Green Monkeys to produce vaccines that are injected into children, many are now wondering just how many of these monkey are captured, euthanized, and processed into vaccine ingredients each year to make these FDA-approved poison jabs?

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

The CDC’s Historical Vaccine Swamp

By Catherine J. Frompovich

“Why is it so hard for mainstream media, independent journalists, and government officials on both sides of the aisle to grasp the dangers of micro small toxins? If they believe that the unseen greenhouse gas particulates and molecules can superheat the world and change climate, why is it so hard to believe that traces of mercury and aluminum in vaccines have harmed so many once promising, healthy children for the past two decades?” [1, Pg. 259]

That’s James Ottar Grundvig, the author of Master Manipulator, The Explosive True Story of Fraud, Embezzlement, and Government Betrayal at the CDC, asking poignant questions after spending much time in Sweden, Atlanta, and places in between investigating yet another apparent fraudulent vaccine fiasco no one seemingly wants to resolve but everyone wants to slide under the carpet.

Why do I say no one seemingly wants to resolve?...

I gave my little boy CANNABIS to help cure his cancer: Mother reveals how her teenage son who was given days to live made a miracle recovery when she gave him the drug behind his doctors' backs

One evening, I heard Deryn yell: ‘Mum – look!’ The bandage on his middle finger had worked its way loose and completely come off, showing his third finger – which had been blackened and dead – had now healed. How on earth had a child with no immune system and no way of fighting infection managed to heal himself after being off medication for more than three weeks?

I called Deryn’s team to tell them what had happened. Not one of them could give me any answers.

We knew his bone marrow wasn’t functioning and it was not scientifically possible for his wounds to heal. Deryn had spent months in isolation because a common cold could be fatal – yet, somehow, he had overcome three catastrophic infections.

Hundreds of people had been praying for Deryn, blessing him in their own ways. Was this a miracle?

Later that evening, the hospice doctor arrived. ‘We’re no longer sure Deryn is dying,’ she admitted.

BEX ALERT - Climate Catastrophe Is Here: 2016 Hottest Year on Record

Dr. Michael Mann emphasizes says we are already seeing global impacts; within one to two decades we are on track for an iceless Arctic

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Experts" predicted an ice free Arctic in 1817, 1922, 1923, 1932, 1941, 1927, 1951, 1958, etc. It never happened. Al Gore predicted an iceless Arctic in 2014. Not only was there ice, there was more of it! Back in 2000 the "experts" claimed snow was a thing of the past ... to be followed by several record winters! Michael Mann was one of the scientists caught up in the Climategate scandal, where leaked emails and computer code showed it was all a fraud to trick people out of carbon taxes and into obedience to a global environmental authority.

Fool me once...

Scott Adams: Trump and Healthcare

Today we are witnessing one of the most important events in political history. But you probably can’t see it because the news is talking about healthcare, and how Ryan and Trump totally failed to get enough votes.

The real story is happening in parallel with the healthcare story, and that’s what renders it invisible. Something enormous is happening that has nothing to do with anything you are seeing in the news. In fact, you’ll probably read it here for the first time.

I’m dragging this out to see if you can guess the big news before I tell you. It is something I predicted would happen. It is something the country needs MORE than healthcare. It was, until yesterday, perceived as the biggest problem in the United States, if not the entire world.

Alert: Sneaky GMO labeling to hit shelves by summer, 2018

The Center for Food Safety states that this GMO labeling bill “discriminates against more than 100 million Americans.” Instead of simply indicating on the package that the food product is made with genetically engineered ingredients, there will be “QR codes, 1-800 numbers and other difficult to access technology.” Additionally, the “bill’s narrow and ambiguous definition of ‘bioengineering'” may mean that “many foods from GE sources will not be subject to this bill.”

Nasa to launch a space LASER that will provide internet 100 times faster than current broadband within two years

A powerful laser shining up into space will soon transmit data between the Earth and the International Space Station.

Nasa is hoping to establish laser links at a rate of over one gigabit per second - a speed most home broadband users could only dream of.

This would pave the way for 3D video from space and enable high definition remote robotic exploration of other moons and planets.

The 'snake dunes' of Hellas: NASA reveals stunning image of strange shapes on Mars near the largest impact crater in the universe

Hellas is the largest known surviving impact structure in the Solar System, but claiming it is the largest in the universe is just sloppy journalism! The universe is the entire cosmos, and who knows what impact structures are on other planets around other stars! The present theory of the formation of the Moon is that a pre-Earth body in our orbit collided with another large object, and the debris from that impact became our Moon. Clearly the Earth would have had a much larger impact structure than Hellas, but it has long since eroded away.

The brain of a blind person ‘rewires’ itself to enhance their other senses - just like the Hollywood film Scent of a Woman, according to new research.

Those born blind also make new connections in the absence of visual information, resulting in enhanced abilities such as a heightened sense of hearing, smell and touch.

Similarly, academics in Massachusetts found people without sight often have better cognitive function, such as memory and language.

PRESIDENT TRUMP, PLEASE MAKE AMERICAN MEDICINE GREAT AGAIN AND IMPLEMENT THIS 10 POINT PLAN

The time has come for a major overhaul of the American healthcare system. “While Obamacare had some noble intentions, Obamacare and politicians have driven medicine into a constant state of disarray. It’s time for medical leaders such as the A4M to voice their opinion,” asserts Dr. Ronald Klatz.

Dr. Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O., physician-founder of the American Academy for Antiaging Medicine and patentholder of over 30 medical innovations stated, “Physicians must resume control of patient care. Today the insurance company rep has more influence than a doctor. That’s a sad statement. It is necessary to have a plan that restores authority to highly experienced, regulated and educated medical professionals. We should focus on effective, preventative healthcare to extend quality of life and increase longevity, and simply bring back common sense to medicine.”

Gun Owners of America: Paul Ryan’s Obamacare 2.0 Still Contains Gun Control

Trump is becoming a nightmare!

Gun Owners of America (GOA) is warning that House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Obamacare 2.o still contains measures that will allow doctors, insurance companies, and the ATF to use medical records to further a gun control agenda.
The first thing GOA points out is that Ryan’s bill “needs to be amended to prohibit the ATF from trolling the national health database, or Medicaid, or any new entitlement program for persons with PTSD, Alzheimer’s, ADHD, or merely ‘anxiety.’” GOA says the recently repealed Social Security gun ban allowed such trolling, which opened the door to the ATF growing the list of the persons prohibited from gun ownership based on otherwise private information gathered from health records.

Our Sun's been using facial scrub: No spots for two weeks

As we reported in 2014, a single Sunspot-free day is notable. A fortnight without Sunspots is decidedly unusual, but not concerning because humanity has been watching the Sun for more than two centuries and in that time we've learned about the Sun's roughly eleven-year cycle of Sunspot activity. A low point in that cycle is due in 2020 and NASA reckons the recent weeks of low Sunspot activity is nothing more than normal descent towards an expected minimum of solar activity.

Untold Story of the Clintons Cashing In on HIV/AIDS Sufferers

On Thursday, March 23, a New York City-based non-profit AIDS service organization, the GMHC (formerly Gay Men's Health Crisis), is due to honor Bill Clinton, the founder of the Clinton Foundation and the 42nd President of the United States for "battling the epidemic since 2002" and "saving the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide."

However, according to Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst who exposed financial fraud at General Electric back in 2007, "there is no evidence that can be verified that the 'international' charity ever lawfully provided any help to victims of HIV/AIDS anywhere."

In his earlier interview with Sputnik on the Clinton Foundation's HIV/AIDS initiative, Ortel revealed that not only were the Foundation's efforts to fight the deadly virus never lawfully organized, but the charity could have also been involved in the distribution of adulterated antiretroviral (ARV) drugs.

Trump's ultimatum: Donald calls House Republicans' bluff and tells them to hold healthcare vote today or KEEP OBAMACARE

The White House issued a blunt warning to House Republicans Thursday night, telling them to vote on an Obamacare replacement on Friday or risk squandering their only chance to get rid of the law they have voted more than 50 times to repeal.

The White House dispatched chief strategist Steve Bannon, chief of staff Reince Priebus, chief counselor Kellyanne Conway and budget director Mick Mulvaney to meet with Speaker Paul Ryan and other GOP members of Congress Thursday evening.

Mulvaney delivered a blunt warning to the GOP conference: Vote on the American Health Care Act or Trump will leave them twisting, Obamacare will remain the law of the land, and they'll be stuck with the blame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could backfire. If the vote fails and Obamacare goes on, the corporate media will blame Trump, not Ryan!

Russian scientists discover body’s own ‘cannabis’ fights epilepsy and brain damage

Scientists from RAS’ Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics (ITEB RAS) and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have demonstrated that analogues of cannabis-acting substances produced by the body are very effective disease-fighting agents, the MIPT press office said. The results of the study have been published in the journal, Brain Research. "We have shown that symptoms of epilepsy might substantially subside or be completely blocked if the test animals are injected with the epilepsy-simulating substances together with the formula triggering the activity of the endocannabinoid system of the brain," Chief of the Laboratory of System Organization of Neurons at ITEB RAS and Doctor of Biological Sciences Valentina Kichigina said...

Thousands of people now have non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma due to glyphosate (Roundup) exposure, warns legal firm that’s suing Monsanto

Former EPA scientist Marion Copley’s heartbreaking email not only illustrates the cancer-causing capacity, but that the EPA is riddled with corruption and greed.

Vitamin C breakthrough discovery: Low-cost nutrient halts growth of cancer stem cells… 1000% more effective than cancer drug… peer-reviewed science confirms powerful effects

Led by Michael P. Lisanti and Gloria Bonuccelli, the study results astonished researchers when it found that vitamin C worked up to 10 times better than a pharmaceutical cancer drug at interfering with cancer stem cell metabolism, effectively shutting down cancer tumors’ ability to process cellular energy for survival and growth.

“Vitamin C is cheap, natural, non-toxic and readily available so to have it as a potential weapon in the fight against cancer would be a significant step,” said Dr. Michael P. Lisanti, Professor of Translational Medicine at the University of Salford, in the Alpha Galileo summary of his research. It goes on to report:

Vitamin C has previously been shown to be effective as a non-toxic anti-cancer agent in studies by Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling and was recently shown to reduce mortality by 25% on breast cancer patients in Japan.

Trump's Labor Secretary nominee faces questions over why he cut a deal with pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein instead of indicting him on federal sex crimes

Another BAD appointment by Trump! Trump's appointee gave a serial child molester a pass!

President Donald Trump's labor secretary nominee is facing questions over the unusual plea deal he oversaw for billionaire sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, while serving as US attorney in Miami.

Alexander Acosta made a deal with Epstein which meant he avoided federal prosecution and a potential life prison sentence when he was found guilty of soliciting prostitution in 2008.

He is now at the center of a lawsuit, which names President Donald Trump as a witness, which accuses him of mishandling the case a decade ago.

Critics, including attorneys for some underage victims of financier Epstein, claim the plea agreement was a 'sweetheart deal' made possible only by Epstein's wealth, connections and high-powered lawyers.

The story resurfaced just hours before his confirmation hearing for the secretary of labor was set to start.

The War on Water Is a Very Real Crisis

One of the hidden costs of industrial agriculture is its intensive water usage. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), about 80 percent of U.S. consumptive water (and more than 90 percent in many Western states) is used for agricultural purposes.1

Only about 3 percent of the water on Earth is fresh water, which is dependent on rain for replenishment. Fresh water stored in aquifers, meanwhile, is being increasingly depleted, at a rate that cannot be naturally restored.2

In some areas, pollution has left water largely undrinkable while industry (often the same ones responsible for the pollution) is draining underground aquifers at alarming rates. Irrigation is necessary to grow crops (including alfalfa hay used primarily for cattle feed) in arid regions of the U.S., but experts say it's unsustainable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What really concerns me is the toxicity of water levels in many places in the US.

We here in Hawaii are very lucky, because the water here is very pure and clear of contaminants, but kind of already lousy in many areas of the continental US.

UK schoolboy corrects Nasa data error

A-level student Miles Soloman found that radiation sensors on the International Space Station (ISS) were recording false data.

The 17-year-old from Tapton school in Sheffield said it was "pretty cool" to email the space agency.

The correction was said to be "appreciated" by Nasa, which invited him to help analyse the problem.

"What we got given was a lot of spreadsheets, which is a lot more interesting than it sounds," Miles told BBC Radio 4's World at One programme.

The research was part of the TimPix project from the Institute for Research in Schools (IRIS), which gives students across the UK the chance to work on data from the space station, looking for anomalies and patterns that might lead to further discoveries.

Mandatory vaccine push by Big Pharma tied to Australian Prime Minister’s wife

Vaccines are a touchy subject in Australia, where government officials aggressively push for total compliance with vaccination mandates by whatever means possible. There is even a “No Jab No Pay” law on the books that essentially bars citizens from receiving government welfare unless they and their children are fully vaccinated. And at the root of it all, as usual, is government collusion with big industry, including with Australia’s new prime minister — and more specifically, his wife.

The San Joaquin Valley is rapidly sinking due to groundwater extraction… some areas have fallen 28 feet… and it’s accelerating

Groundwater extraction has caused immense damage to San Joaquin Valley, California, as image data from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has shown. The region has suffered pronounce land subsidence over the years. The California Water Science Center defines land subsidence as the gradual settling of the earth’s surface. Simply put, San Joaquin Valley is sinking, and it has been for years. According to the CWCS, the primary causes of land subsidence include aquifer-system compaction, underground mining, oil and gas extraction and drainage and decomposition of organic soils.

Excessive pumping has been the primary culprit in this subsidence. According to data from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, groundwater extraction that began in the 1920s has caused various parts of land in the region to subside or sink by as much as 8.5 meters.

‘Explosive events’ rock Pacific Ocean

AN ACTIVE island volcano situated in the Pacific Ocean under one of the world’s busiest flight paths has barely stopped erupting since Christmas and is nearing its 40th explosion in months.

Bogoslof volcano, nestled in the Aleutian Islands about 98km northwest of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, US, has been in the midst of an “active eruption sequence” since mid-December 2016.

It has erupted more than 37 times since then and sent up another ash cloud as recently as Monday. The Alaska Volcano Observatory said the latest eruption lasted 12 minutes.
The observatory said the magnitude of the eruption was being monitored.

Coincidence? Monsanto patented glyphosate as an “antibiotic” drug, claiming weed killer is medicine

While you’d be hard pressed to find anyone willing to use a known herbicide for medicinal purposes, that hasn’t stopped Monsanto from patenting the star ingredient of their flagship herbicide, Roundup, as a type of antibiotic. In 2003, the corporate giant first submitted a patent for glyphosate as a parasitic control-type antimicrobial agent — or, in other words, a type of antibiotic.

Vaccines are a touchy subject in Australia, where government officials aggressively push for total compliance with vaccination mandates by whatever means possible. There is even a “No Jab No Pay” law on the books that essentially bars citizens from receiving government welfare unless they and their children are fully vaccinated. And at the root of it all, as usual, is government collusion with big industry, including with Australia’s new prime minister — and more specifically, his wife.

Malcolm Turnbull has repeatedly been exposed for his own ties to multinational corporations. He has large investments in many of them, particularly tech companies, that many say is clouding his judgment on various matters more than just a little bit. At issue with the vaccination debate is his wife Lucy’s ties to pharmaceutical companies, and how this influence is steering public policy to force Aussies to be jabbed against their will in order to function normally within society.

Monsanto Weed Killer Roundup Faces New Doubts on Safety in Unsealed Documents

The court documents included Monsanto’s internal emails and email traffic between the company and federal regulators. The records suggested that Monsanto had ghostwritten research that was later attributed to academics and indicated that a senior official at the Environmental Protection Agency had worked to quash a review of Roundup’s main ingredient, glyphosate, that was to have been conducted by the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

The documents also revealed that there was some disagreement within the E.P.A. over its own safety assessment.

Emails show Monsanto tried to 'ghostwrite' research

Emails released as part of a federal lawsuit against Monsanto suggest the agriculture supplier cozied up to an EPA regulator and sought to whitewash studies to ignore potential cancer-causing effects of an herbicide found in weed-killer.

NPR reports the emails show the company asked scientists to co-sign safety studies on glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup, after the International Agency for Research on Cancer found glypshosate may cause cancer. NPR wrote the company emails were revealed earlier this week in a lawsuit brought by cancer victims accusing the company of working with the EPA to bury health dangers of the herbicide.

The emails show company representative William Heydens suggesting the company "ghost-write" a finding. He wrote, according to NPR, "we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak."

Countless teenage girls suffer paralysis, blood clots, brain damage and chronic pain from force-vaccination of Gardasil’s HPV “shot in the dark”

Why are HPV vaccines, like Gardasil (made by Merck) and Cervarix (made by GSK) so dangerous? Answer: They’re made with “denatured” forms and fragmented strains of the virus, meaning the virus is weakened and can remain dormant for months, if not years, so if you do get the virus later, who’s to say you didn’t get it from the vaccine itself? No studies on this have ever been conducted, nor will they likely ever be. Plus, Gardasil contains aluminum, sodium chloride, polysorbate 80 and l-histidine, the latter of which interferes with the brain’s defenses against metal toxins. That means the aluminum has a heightened chance of crossing the blood/brain barrier. Got brain damage? No wonder. The following are just four examples of the hundreds (if not thousands) of girls permanently damaged by HPV vaccines.

D.C. DAIRY LOBBYING ORGANIZATIONS TRYING TO KILL BILL TO LEGALIZE RAW MILK IN MONTANA

Deep-pocketed national organizations representing big dairy have thrown their political clout behind efforts to kill a bill that would legalize limited raw milk sales in Montana

Last week, the National Milk Producers Federation and the International Dairy Foods Association sent a 26-page document to members of the Senate Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Committee urging them to kill House Bill 325 (HB325).

“Due to the significant public health risks associated with the consumption of raw milk, the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) respectfully urge that you oppose HB 325, legislation designed to allow the sale of unpasteurized milk in Montana. HB 325 would remove existing regulations prohibiting the direct sale of raw milk, consumption of which has been opposed by every major health organization in the United States, including the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics.”

Want to Eat Fish That’s Truly Good for You? Here Are Some Guidelines to Reeling One In

By Keri Szejda, Arizona State University

Seafood is very healthy to eat – all things considered. Fish and shellfish are an important source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and they are low in saturated fat. But seafood’s claim to fame is its omega-3 fatty acids...

One of the things I research is Americans’ meat and protein consumption. Though many of us are concerned about getting enough protein, most Americans actually get more than enough protein in their diets. Rather, the problem is that most of us don’t include enough variety of protein sources in our diet...

'New thalidomide' scandal over 1960s pregnancy test pill: Damning new evidence exposes scale of alleged cover-up of Primodos super-strength hormone tablets, prescribed by GPs 

A pregnancy test pill given to more than a million British women in the 1960s and 1970s may have caused severe birth defects and life-threatening abnormalities in thousands of cases, a shocking investigation has revealed.

Damning new evidence exposes the scale of the growing scandal and an alleged cover-up over Primodos super-strength hormone tablets, given to women by GPs.

A review of archived documents found a study by renowned Professor Bill Inman, who was responsible for helping to revise medication safety regulation following the thalidomide scandal.

He concluded that the 1.5 million women given Primodos were five times more likely to have a disabled child than those who didn’t take the drug.

The findings have renewed hope for the affected families, who have so far not been compensated by the drug’s manufacturer - but could now have a 'strong case' to sue the manufacturer for tens of millions.

Two major studies from the US reveal that those choosing gluten-free foods have twice as much arsenic in their urine as those who eat gluten.

They also have 70 per cent more mercury in their blood and worryingly high levels of other metals such as lead and cadmium.

Contamination comes mainly from rice flour, which is used as a substitute in products such as bread, spaghetti and cereals.

Rice is already known to contain relatively high levels of arsenic and the Food Standards Agency has warned parents against giving toddlers rice milk as a substitute for cows’ milk because of the dangers.

Long-term exposure is also linked with skin lesions, weight loss, high blood pressure, muscle wasting and diabetes.

A Mexican immigrant who twice entered the U.S. illegally has one man in particular to thank for being able to live and work in Oklahoma City with his family -- Judge Neil M. Gorsuch.

Gorsuch, the nominee President Donald Trump is betting on to be his Supreme Court tie-breaker, wrote a 2016 ruling permitting Hugo Rosario Gutierrez-Brizuela to stay in the U.S. and, his lawyer hopes, within a few years become a citizen.

Monsanto Finally Admits What We All Suspected About Roundup & Cancer

Rowland’s relationship with Monsanto was suspicious, U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria said at a hearing in San Francisco. Plaintiffs’ attorneys want Rowland to testify and explain his actions.

The attorneys are charging that Rowland leaked a report to the media that claimed there was insufficient evidence to say glyphosate caused cancer. It was written by a committee he chaired. Rowland quit his job at the EPA days after the study was leaked.

“My reaction is when you consider the relevance of the EPA’s reports, and you consider their relevance to this litigation, it seems appropriate to take Jess Rowland’s deposition,” U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria said, according to Reuters.

Monsanto employees were the ghost writers for two reports on Roundup that the committee headed by Rowland relied on for its findings, plaintiffs’ attorneys charged. The reports concluded that glyphosate was not carcinogenic.

The Crumbling American Superpower

A Wall Street-driven agenda of globalization of US manufacturing and out-sourcing of production has left America a hollowed-out, crumbling Superpower. Since the 1980’s the United States has significantly under-invested in both new infrastructure and in renewing old. As US multinational corporations moved their factories overseas to cheap labor production in Mexico, then in Asia, especially China, and elsewhere, they found tax loopholes that allowed them to walk away from supporting the country that as recently as the 1960’s was the world industrial economic leading nation. Today US corporations hold $2.4 trillion in overseas profits that they keep abroad to avoid US taxes.

The result of all this neglect is that over the past three decades since the end of the 1980s, federal funding of major infrastructure projects such as dams has dropped by half, from 1 percent to 0.5 percent of GDP.

‘Tsunami of sewage spills’ at Mexican border ‘deliberate,’ says California mayor

The massive sewage spill in Tijuana, Mexico that polluted Southern California beaches last month appeared to be a deliberate move, a local official said.

More than 140 million gallons of sewage spilled into the Tijuana River in Mexico that flowed into the Pacific Ocean on the U.S. side of the border.

Serge Dedina, the mayor of Imperial Beach which is located about 10 miles outside Tijuana, told the Los Angeles Times the spill looks like it was “deliberate.”

“It saves (the Mexican agencies) a lot of money in pumping costs, and ultimately, they can get away with it and do it all the time, just on a much smaller scale,” Dedina said.

He described the incident as the “tsunami of sewage spills.”

NASA swerves serious cash cuts – but Earth climate probes, asteroid snatcher face axe

Funding was cut by $200m, and the total going to America's space agency is $19.1bn per year. Even so, NASA has had to cancel some popular programs. The mission to catch and bring an asteroid back to Earth for examination has been scrapped, as too are plans for a lander on Europa, although the Europa Clipper probe will still pay a visit to Jupiter's watery moon.

In a statement, NASA acting Administrator Robert Lightfoot said that while those two programs were being cut, the initial research carried out will still be used – notably the solar electric propulsion systems that were designed to bring an asteroid to Earth.

The planetary science budget has actually increased, so NASA can spend more on investigating other planets and moons. But the Earth science budget was cut 13 per cent, meaning the space agency will have to pull out of the climate-studying DSCOVR satellite system, and has cancelled other satellites due to study the Earth's ecosystem.

The complaints against Mr. Sullivan appear to have focused on how disruptive his comments were to the planned vaccination event rather than the accuracy or inaccuracy of his views. The reality of vaccine risks for death and serious side effects has been acknowledged by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). All of these organizations have stated that vaccines may cause adverse reactions and death in a small percentage of patients. According to the CDC, “although immunization has successfully reduced the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccination can cause both minor and, rarely, serious side effects.”2

The Impacts of Vaccines: Aluminum, Autoimmunity, Autism and Alzheimer’s

There are a number of whistle-blower experts (see below) who are trying to alert doctors, journalists and law-makers to the dangers of Big Pharma’s highly profitable over-vaccination business plan. These out-numbered and silenced whistle-blowers are stepping on some very big toes, namely huge multinational pharmaceutical corporations that have large numbers of clever lawyers, cunning front groups, well-paid lobbyists and control of what gets reported on the mainstream news. That combination can easily destroy the careers of honest altruistic researchers that threaten their financial bottom line – and they have – most dramatically and cruelly in the case of Dr Andrew Wakefield (watch one of his powerful talks on YouTube).

Common painkillers linked to increased risk of heart failure, BMJ finds

The study found that people who had taken any NSAID in the previous 14 days had a 19% increased risk of hospital admission for heart failure compared with people who had used NSAIDs at any point in the past. The BMJ research was led by a team from the University of Milano-Bicocca in Italy.

The risk of admission for heart failure increased for seven traditional NSAIDs (diclofenac, ibuprofen, indomethacin, ketorolac, naproxen, nimesulide, and piroxicam) and two COX 2 inhibitors (etoricoxib and rofecoxib). The increased risk of hospital admission ranged from 16% for naproxen to 83% for ketorolac.

Myocarditis after Vaccination

“Vaccination causes myocarditis in 3% of healthy patients (Helle, Koskenvuo, Heikkilaet al.1978; Amsel, Hanukoglu, Friedet al.1986) . Part of this can be explained by circulating antigen precipitating in the heart tissue however people often develop autoantibodies to myocardial tissue after damage to the heart (Rose, Herskowitz, Neumannet al.1988) and this response may be exacerbated by a vaccine draining into a lymph node where the autoimmune process is developing. In either case the myocarditis induced by vaccination can lead to chronic autoimmune destruction of the myocardial tissue. ”

Science Teacher May Be Disciplined for Urging Students Be Informed of Vaccination Risks

In March 2015, science teacher Timothy Sullivan approached public health nurses administering vaccines to high school students at his school in Waterford, Ontario, Canada and asked whether they had appropriately informed the students about the potential risks of the shots they were giving. He noted that the teenagers were required to give informed consent and the nurses, therefore, had the obligation to make sure they were fully informed.1

Mr. Sullivan also made the point that, “some of the components in the vaccines were deemed ‘toxic’ in his science lab.” The nurse allegedly answered that they alerted parents and teens about common vaccine risks like fever or soreness at the injection site and she claimed that “a screening tool allows nurses to assess if there are any underlying conditions that would trigger a more serious reaction among students” and added that “the risk of death from receiving a vaccine is so very, very rare.”1

Scott Adams: Start-ups that Lower the Cost of Health Care

Most of the remaining problems in the world are information problems in disguise. For example, our politicians in the United States are trying to figure out how to provide health insurance to low-income people without breaking the budget.

It looks impossible, at least with our political system as it stands.

So I thought I would help.

The Deep Pacific Ocean Is Broken/Dead; Devoid Of Life For Thousands Of Miles, Where It Used To Be Filled With Life, Tide Pools From Mexico To BC Sterilized, Devoid Of 99 Percent Of What Used To Be There

A different kind of dead zone in the Pacific may potentially be slowly moving towards the US, as described by a sailboat captain below. This dead zone may be due to a combination of the tsunami washout from Japan, plus the added layer of radiation coming from the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster that continues up to today. Fukushima is still pouring massive quantities of radioactive water into the Pacific, right up to today. This mega nuclear disaster is just beginning and it is getting worse and worse.

The nuclear industry and mass media stopped covering Fukushima, or they claim it is in cold shutdown, and normal decommissioning. Low dose radiation is 'harmless' according to pro nuclear apologists and biologists repeating it ad nauseum. But is that really true?
