Juno probe returns close-up Jupiter pictures

The US space agency (Nasa) has released spectacular new images of Jupiter acquired by its Juno probe.

The pictures show the swirling clouds of the gas giant at both its poles - views that no previous mission has managed to acquire in such detail.

Juno captured the data last weekend as it made its first close approach to the planet since going into orbit in July.

Nestle Pays Only $524 to Extract 27,000,000 Gallons of California Drinking Water

Nestle has found itself more and more frequently in the glare of the California drought-shame spotlight than it would arguably care to be — though not frequently enough, apparently, for the megacorporation to have spontaneously sprouted a conscience.

Drought-shaming worked sufficiently enough for Starbucks to stop bottling water in the now-arid state entirely, uprooting its operations all the way to Pennsylvania. But Nestle simply shrugged off public outrage and then upped the ante by increasing its draw from natural springs — most notoriously in the San Bernardino National Forest — with an absurdly expired permit.

Because profit, of course. Or, perhaps more befittingly, theft. But you get the idea.

Our View: As if doctor bills weren’t high enough already

Aphysician who sees patients every day — patients with health insurance — Dr. Laura Dean of suburban St. Paul hears the complaint often.

“I pay more and more and I get less and less,” she said her patients are telling her.

Can you relate? Most Minnesotans would nod yes.

“So they come in to see me, and they have a problem, and I want to order an ultrasound. They say, ‘I can’t afford the ultrasound because my insurance won’t cover the ultrasound until I’ve hit my cap,’ which is now $10,000 or $15,000. So they’re paying a big premium cost (and) they’re not having everything covered until they’ve hit a huge cap. And so people are choosing not to have tests that they might need to diagnose or to treat their problems,” Dr. Dean said in an interview this week with the News Tribune editorial board; she was traveling with her husband, Rep. Matt Dean, who was speaking in Duluth, which this editorial will get to in a bit.

Prescription Painkiller Deaths Have Dropped 25% In States That Legalized Cannabis

Waking Times Media

There is still heated controversy in the United States about whether or not marijuana should be legalized for recreational use, let alone medicinal purposes. After reviewing a study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2014, you’ll likely agree that it’s much safer for cannabis to be doled out than most prescription opioids.

DEA Adds Kratom To Schedule 1 List Alongside Heroin, Idiots!

Mitragyna speciosa, aka kratom, and its two primary constituents, mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine are going to be placed onto schedule 1 temporarily beginning on September 30th.

Opponents of Dakota Access Pipeline Call For National Direct Action Campaign

By Derrick Broze

On Wednesday, the Red Warrior Camp and the Sacred Stone Spirit Camp issued a press release calling for “Global Weeks of Solidarity Action” aimed at targeting the banks and corporations behind the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Since early August activists, protesters, protectors, and members of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation have been opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline project. The opposition has come in the form of protests, rallies, prayers, Internet campaigns, petitions, and direct action. The opponents of the pipeline say that the project will put the Missouri River and other bodies of water at risk, as well as disturb important cultural sites...

Cannabis found to be possible 'cure' for organ transplant rejection

Researchers at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine found that, when given to mice, THC – the active ingredient in pot – seems to aid in preventing the rejection of incompatible organs. This would be huge, because according to Stanford University's School of Medicine, one-quarter of kidney transplant recipients, and about 40 percent of heart transplant recipients, experience organ rejection within the first year. That, coupled with the difficulty in even finding viable organs to transplant, means that anything that would lower rejection rates would immediately become a highly coveted medical discovery.

BEX Alert!!! - "Gun sale bans for medical marijuana users constitutional, US appeals court rules"

Gun restrictions applying to medical marijuana patients don’t violate any constitutional rights, a US appeals court has ruled. The decision comes in response to a Nevada woman, who accused the government of breaching her Second Amendment rights.

The Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously voted 3-0 in support of the government’s power to ban medical marijuana card holders and users from buying arms.

Senior District Judge Jed Rakoff said that the ban was justified because using marijuana "raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated,” according to the Associated Press.

‘Like it’s been nuked’: Millions of bees dead after South Carolina sprays for Zika mosquitoes

In parts of South Carolina, trucks trailing pesticide clouds are not an unusual sight, thanks to a mosquito-control program that also includes destroying larvae. Given the current concerns of West Nile virus and Zika — there are several dozen cases of travel-related Zika in South Carolina, though the state health department reports no one has yet acquired the disease from a local mosquito bite — Dorchester decided to try something different Sunday.

COLLATERAL DAMAGE: BEES DIE IN SOUTH CAROLINA ZIKA SPRAYING

There's been some collateral damage in the fight against Zika - millions of honeybees in South Carolina.

News outlets report that Dorchester County officials have apologized for killing the bees when the county failed to notify local beekeepers about mosquito spraying last weekend.

Four travel-related cases of the Zika virus have been confirmed in the county northwest of Charleston. Aerial mosquito spraying operations were conducted Sunday morning.

Flowertown Bee Farm and Supply in Summerville lost more than two million bees,. Company co-owner Juanita Stanley says the farm "looks like it's been nuked." Andrew Macke, a hobby beekeeper, says he lost thousands of bees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dorchester County needs to do more than "apologise": the literature is very clear about Naled insecticide's toxicity to bees. As recorded in an abstract from Cornell University in 1993:

Effects on Other Animals (Nontarget species) Naled is highly toxic to bees.

The County of Dorchester should replace these hives, gratis, because this has been a known problem for the last 23 years.

It is apparent that the employees of Dorchester County who made the decision to spray, using this pesticide, were absolutely pig-ignorant of the potential for damage here.

Turns out the signal astronomers saw was “strong” because it came from Earth

Ars was among the first news outlets to report on discussions among astronomers about observations of an intriguing "signal" that may have originated from a distant, Sun-like star. We cautioned readers that, because the signal was measured at 11Ghz, there was a "significant chance" it was of terrestrial origin, likely due to some military activity.

Well, it apparently was. First, astronomers with the search for extraterrestrial intelligence downplayed the possibility of an alien civilization. "There are many other plausible explanations for this claimed transmission, including terrestrial interference," Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer with SETI, wrote.

Now the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences has concurred, releasing a statement on the detection of a radio signal at the RATAN-600 radio astronomy observatory in southern Russia.

Drama in orbit: Brazen UFO attacks Earth's Sentinel-1A satellite

"Such hits, caused by particles of millimeter in size, are not unexpected. These very small objects are not trackable from the ground, because only objects greater than about 5 cm [2 in] can usually be tracked and, thus, avoided by maneuvering the satellites," said Holger Krag, head of the Space Debris Office at ESA.

"In this case, assuming the change in attitude and the orbit of the satellite at impact, the typical speed of such a fragment, plus additional parameters – our first estimates indicate that the size of the particle was a few millimeters."

A vote for Clinton is a vote for lots more space debris.

FLASHBACK: Myth Of US Invincibility Floats In The Persian Gulf

This was in 2002. The Iranians have vastly increased their firepower in the Persian Gulf. They have torpedoes that do over 180 mph and hundreds if not thousands of cruise missiles including some that are supersonic.
The US is a destabilizing force wherever it goes.Our military does not protect America.They protect the corporation and banks that own them lock,stock and barrel!

His name was Lt. Gen. Paul Van Riper, and he had played the role of the crazed but cunning leader of the hypothetical rogue state. Gen. Van Riper dismissed the new military concepts as empty sloganeering, and he had reason to be skeptical. In the first days of the "war," Van Riper's Force Red sent most of the US fleet to the bottom of the Persian Gulf.

In the interview, Scheiner argued that Clinton’s letter from her doctor, which details that Clinton had follow-up testing in 2013 that showed a full recovery from a concussion and that she tested negative for clotting disorders, is not enough.

The Global Health Coalition: Declaration on HPV Vaccine Safety

May 2016: AutismOne hosted the first International HPV Vaccine Safety Symposium in Chicago, Illinois. For perhaps the first time in history, people from around the globe came together to discuss their experiences with a single type of vaccine. Multiple presentations made it abundantly clear to all that HPV vaccines embody a broad spectrum of problems common to other vaccines, graphically illustrating everything that could possibly go wrong with a vaccine or vaccination program.

The meetings in Chicago brought vaccine safety advocates, HPV vaccine survivors, medical, scientific, and legal professionals from 3 continents together to learn about the global HPV vaccine controversy. By the end of the symposium several conclusions were reached...

Lord Dannatt, who was chief of the general staff between 2006 and 2009, apologised on the BBC to troops who took Lariam while under his command.

It has been associated with depression, hallucinations and panic attacks in some users - and Lord Dannatt admitted the side-effects could be ‘pretty catastrophic’.

But the Ministry of Defence confirmed that Lariam is still being prescribed to some troops because officials ‘have a duty to protect our personnel from malaria’.

Earth just had a 'close shave' with a 180ft asteroid - and no one saw it coming

Brazilian sky watchers had only just discovered the asteroid, called 2016 QA2, the day before it zoomed by within 50,000 miles (80,000 km) of Earth.

That's less than a quarter of the distance between Earth and the moon.

Astronomers at the Sonear observatory in Brazil discovered the rock on Saturday 27th August, and estimate its size to be between 80 and 180 feet wide (25 and 55 metres).

The upper end of the range would make it far larger than the object which exploded over Chelyabinsk in Russia in 2013, smashing windows and injuring more than 1,000 people.

Judge Gives Cancer Patient 90 Days Of Jail For Being Too Sick To Pay Bills

Judge Milas “Butch” Hale from Sherwood, Arkansas has been accused of [allegedly] running a “modern-day debtor’s prison” after he recently sentenced a 44-year-old man with pancreatic cancer to 90 days in jail.

President and Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Kristen Clarke said of sentencing people like this to jail:

“People are doomed for failure when they appear before the court, and most significantly trapped in this never-ending cycle of expanding debt. With the resurgence of debtors’ prisons, we will continue to see people cycle in and out of jails and prisons across our country merely because of their inability to pay fines and fees tied to low-level, nonviolent offenses.”

PROTESTERS SWARM PIPELINE FIRM AFTER CORPS OF ENGINEERS PROVES NATIVE AMERICANS WERE RIGHT

“That’s true they don’t have the easement that’s required to install the segment that’s across the Oahe project,” said Larry Janis, Army Corps Of Engineers, according to KFYR.

Now, the project seems to be in limbo as there is no current timetable on when the easement will be granted. However, the Corps has stated that they have issued a permission that will allow for the easement to be written.

Insulin price spike leaves diabetes patients in crisis

A massive spike in insulin prices is causing a health crisis for millions of diabetes patients who depend on the lifesaving drug, doctors say.

Now, after years of rapid increases having nothing to do with available supply and not matched elsewhere in the world, those in the U.S. insulin supply chain are blaming each other.

Tens of thousands of medical professionals are engaged in an intricate therapeutic ballet performed to protect the health, limbs, and lives of the almost 30 million people in the U.S. suffering from diabetes.

But their efforts have been dramatically complicated by the soaring increase in the cost of insulin. They find themselves balancing the cost of the essential medication and their patients' ability to pay.

Biofuels 'worse than petrol' for the environment, new study finds

“Green” biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel are in fact worse for the environment that petrol, a landmark new study has found.

The alternative energy source has long been praised for being carbon-neutral because the plants it is made from absorb carbon dioxide, which causes global warming, from the atmosphere while they are growing.

But new research in the US has found that the crops used for biofuel absorb only 37 per cent of the CO2 that is later released into the atmosphere when the plants are burnt, meaning the process actually increases the amount of greenhouse gas in the air.

The scientists behind the study have called on governments to rethink their carbon policies in light of the findings.

The use of biofuels is controversial because it means crops and farm space that could otherwise be devoted to food production are in fact used for energy.

The data will be publicly ‘released’ and also shared with city officials, “policy makers”, scientists/experts, law enforcement and (surely) government agencies, all of whom will process and analyze the data.

Most pediatricians say parents have refused vaccines for their kids

More doctors are reporting run-ins with parents refusing to vaccinate their kids than a decade ago, but parents' reasons for skipping immunizations have shifted in the past decade.

A new survey published in Pediatrics on Monday reports that 87 percent of pediatricians in the United States say they encountered parents refusing to vaccinate their children in 2013. A decade earlier, 75 percent of doctors reported they had experienced vaccine refusals.

The most common reason parents gave: the vaccines weren't necessary.

"Vaccines have been so good at taking diseases away that when we don't see diseases, we don't think they're important," said Dr. Kathryn Edwards, a pediatrician and director of the Vanderbilt Vaccine Research Program.

Vaccine Maker Admits On FDA Website That DTaP Vaccine Causes Autism

213 Women Who Took Gardasil Suffered Permanent Disability

Vaccines Have Serious Side Effects - The Institute of Medicine Says So!

Government Wipes Recent Vaccine Injury Data from Website

Guillain Barré Syndrome is #1 Side Effect of Vaccine Injury Compensations due to Flu Shots

I am not saying to parents, don't vaccinate; but for Pete's sake, do the due dilligence before your child is immunized.

I have a very smart acquaintance here, whose kids go to public school. The kids had their immunizations, but separately, not bundled into a mega-dose.

The problem with bundling vaccines is that they have not been tested in combination, only individually.

Dr. Edwards, parents deserve the best outcomes, if they are having their kids vaccinated; not permanent injuries or deaths.

We have to come down hard on the vaccine companies to test those combinations, and for them to be be very public with the results of those studies; otherwise, no one is going to trust vaccines ever again.

Media Blackout: Top Doctor Says Fears Over Hillary’s Health Not a ‘Conspiracy’

Once relegated to the back-pages of conservative news outlets such as Breitbart and Daily Caller that pointed mockingly at every slip and fall by the former Secretary of State began to be a full-fledged public outrage after a startling video surfaced of what appears to be Hillary suffering a seizure or, at minimum, a 30-second long uncontrolled fit that would hardly be described as normal. At the time, Secretary Clinton immediately downplayed the scene that left an AP reporter with a horrified expression on her face asking the journalists whether they’ve tried the iced latte before her handlers shuffled her away from the interview, one saying "it’s time."

"Stay quiet about what you saw"Firemen told not to tell the truth about 'Katrina'

New Orleans firemen riding out the storm high up in an office building saw levees collapse dooming the city.

They were ordered not to tell what they saw when they appeared before a Congressional committee hearing about the devastation.

Why not?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The levees that failed were in the process of being replaced, but the replacement was halted due to the costs of the war in Iraq. They had not been properly tamped down and sealed.

BONKERS: Disney World and Seaworld now handing out DEET insect repellent that causes seizures, encephalopathy and comas in children

Yet as I have exhaustively documented here on Natural News, DEET is one part of a binary chemical weapon that causes brain damage in humans. Known as "N,N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide" from a chemistry point of view, when DEET is combined with carbamate class pesticide chemicals -- which are found everywhere in the food supply -- the result is a "hyper toxic" brain damaging chemical cocktail that radically damages brain function. One of the chemical classes in this binary weapon system is similar to VX Nerve Gas chemical weapons that kill mammals within seconds.

This chemical cocktail functions as an "acetylcholinesterase inhibitor," meaning it "paralyzes" brain cells after causing them to be hyper stimulated. The result is cognitive confusion, fear, memory loss and other symptoms that curiously resemble the brain damage we're all told is caused by Zika virus.

Beware of cancer-causing ingredients in many sunscreens

Although sunscreens are promoted as the best way to protect yourself against skin cancer, the FDA has admitted that it is "not aware of data demonstrating that sunscreen use alone helps prevent skin cancer." In fact, many of the toxic chemicals found in sunscreens have actually been shown to increase skin cancer risk!

Adding insult to injury, it turns out that many chemical sunscreens don't even protect your body from the damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. That's because many chemical ingredients act by physically filtering out UV radiation, and therefore are effective only while sitting on the surface of the skin. But the chemical formulations of many sunscreens cause the active ingredients to be rapidly absorbed into the skin's lower layers, where they are just as toxic but provide little or no sun protection.

Commercial flights are too ‘burdensome’ for Clinton

“It’s going to rain all day and I still don’t feel great, so the idea of playing a guessing game w the shuttle is really burdensome to me. What do you think? Could be any time that works for the Air Force,” Clinton told Abedin.

An hour and 40 minutes later, the trusted aide replied: “Yes of course. Looking into it. Around what time do u think?”

“Six or 7 — does that work?” Clinton asked.

Abedin quickly got the job done. “Plan confirmed. Its the c21, the little one that we’ve taken before. Will be at white plains ready for a 6pm departure,” she wrote. At 5:15 pm, 45 minutes before the departure time, Clinton had a change of plan.

American Electorate Loses As Partisan Media Coverage Of Candidate Health Turns Outright Bizarre

The recent media frenzy surrounding Clinton and Trump's health records has accomplished little more than to, once again, expose a "press" that is becoming increasingly partisan with each passing day.

Right-leaning media outlets have spent countless hours reporting on the various health issues experienced by Clinton over the years and pointing to pictures of her falling down on the campaign trail or seemingly zoning out at times as evidence of her frailty. Meanwhile the left-leaning organizations have mostly dismissed the Hillary health concerns as conspiracy theories of right-wing nut jobs.

GOVT EXPOSED FOR FORCING FOSTER KIDS, EVEN TODDLERS TO TAKE DANGEROUS PSYCHOTROPIC DRUGS

After years of growing concern, the California state auditor has produced a damning report describing how the state’s 79,000 foster children are being drugged with psychotropic medications at abnormally high rates.

The report found that nearly 12 percent of kids in California’s child welfare system were prescribed psychotropic medications – including antipsychotics, antidepressants and mood stabilizers – during 2014-2015. This compares to a rate of 4 to 10 percent for non-foster kids.

Some of these vulnerable children were drugged “in amounts and dosages that exceeded state guidelines,” with no follow-up by the county to ensure these prescriptions were appropriate. Some counties also violated the law by failing to obtain court or parental approval for psychotropic medications.

California spent $226 million on psychotropic medications for foster kids over the last decade, which amounts to almost 72 percent of total drug spending for foster youth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is criminal to do to helpless kids, who have no idea what they are being given, and can have no way of understanding how the effects of these drugs will play out later in their lives.

Scientists stunned by huge MIT discovery

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has done a lot of important scientific work over the years, and you can add another discovery to the pile: researchers at MIT have created new 3D printed structures that can “remember” their shapes, even after they are stretched and bent to oblivion, which could lead to breakthroughs in solar cells and drug capsules that release medicine only when a fever is detected.

In cooperation with the Sinapore University of Technology and Design, the MIT researchers found a way to print tiny features on a micron scale, and then bent them — causing them to spring back into their original shape afterwards after being heated to a certain temperatures, according to an MIT statement.

Mandatory Vaccination in CA: Let’s School a Federal Judge

Judge Sabraw: here’s something you didn’t know about the DPT shot…

I’ll repeat myself a bit here, in case you missed my last article. Then I’ll get into something else, something dangerous that a Federal Judge knows nothing about…

Federal Judge Dana Sabraw is overseeing a lawsuit against mandatory vaccination in California.

So far, Sabraw has denied a petition to suspend mandatory vaccination for school children while the case moves forward.

He believes tradition and history are on the side of forced vaccinations. That’s because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Or he’s just making it up out of thin air...

There’s a reason that the most tech-cautious parents are tech designers and engineers. Steve Jobs was a notoriously low-tech parent.

Military Mind Control Shocking Breakthrough: Implanting Neural Dust to Remotely Abuse Targets

U.S. military contractors have admitted wireless mind control by implanting human brains with neural dust, to remotely “monitor” human neurological activity. Targeted Individuals in record numbers are becoming victims of secret human experimentation, mind control, gangstalking, remote neural monitoring. According to Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contractors, their “testing” is solely for benevolent purposes, of course. All Americans, except Targeted Individuals, know that DARPA spends billions of U.S. citizens’ tax payer dollars for betterment of humanity — supposedly through weapons aimed to control all of humanity and target-kill remaining humans who oppose militarized removal of God-given free will.

It’s no secret that there is a genetic aspect to our looks ? how many times have you heard you look like a relative? It turns out that specific genetic mutations are responsible for many facial features, from nose size to face width, a new study finds.

Researchers led by John Shaffer, assistant professor of human genetics at the University of Pittsburgh, analyzed the genomes of more than 3,000 people with European ancestry. The subjects then had 3D scans done of their faces, which the scientists used to focus on 20 different facial traits, including measurements and sizes across different areas of the face.

Just 90 companies are to blame for most climate change, this 'carbon accountant' says

Last month, geographer Richard Heede received a subpoena from Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX), chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. Smith, a climate change doubter, became concerned when the attorneys general of several states launched investigations into whether ExxonMobil had committed fraud by sowing doubts about climate change even as its own scientists knew it was taking place. The congressman suspected a conspiracy between the attorneys general and environmental advocates, and he wanted to see all the communications among them. Predictably, his targets included advocacy organizations such as Greenpeace, 350.org, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. They also included Heede, who works on his own aboard a rented houseboat on San Francisco Bay in California.

Parents Sue Over EPA’s Glacial Pace In Lead Paint Reform

Parents are suing the Environmental Protection Agency for taking seven years to update its standards on lead paint regulations. The suit argues hundreds of thousands of families are uninformed about possible lead paint exposure in their homes.

The “unreasonably delay” lawsuit was filed Wednesday in the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

The suit, brought by California Communities Against Toxics, the Sierra Club, New Jersey Citizen Action and United Parents Against Lead National among others, seeks the court to require “the Environmental Protection Agency to promulgate a rule updating the dust-lead hazard standards and the definition of lead-based paint under the Toxic Substances Control Act,” and to do so “within 90 days and to finalize the rule within six months.”

Black Women Do Breastfeed, Despite Intense Systemic Barriers In The US

The movement to normalize breastfeeding in this country has generated positive results, but a racial gap in breastfeeding rates persists. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 79 percent of all newborn infants in the US started out breastfeeding in 2011. That is good news for both babies and mothers, as breastfeeding yields significant health benefits, such as a lower risk of asthma and childhood leukemia for children, and a lower risk of gynecological cancers and osteoporosis for mothers. But the data suggest that US mothers require more support in order to continue breastfeeding. Among US-born children in 2011, only 49 percent were still breastfeeding at six months; and at 12 months, only 27 percent of those babies were still breastfeeding. For Black mothers and their babies, support needs are greater, as Black women’s rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration are significantly lower than the US average.

Stunning Maps Depict Collapse Of Obamacare "Coverage" In 2017

Well, as we've pointed out numerous times things are not really playing out as Obama had hoped with premiums skyrocketing (see "Obamacare On "Verge Of Collapse" As Premiums Set To Soar Again In 2017") and "competition" collapsing (see "Tennessee Insurance Commissioner Warns Obamacare "Very Near Collapse"").

The two maps below prove that point beautifully by illustrating the epic collapse of Obamacare coverage in just 1 year. A collapse that will leave a stunning number of people across the country with only 1 option for health insurance. Meanwhile, healthcare shoppers in Pinal County, Arizona will actually be left with no options in 2017 as all carriers have abandoned service there.

FDA declared veggies ‘unapproved drugs’ after NYC allowed doctors to prescribe fresh fruit and vegetables as treatment for obesity

“This program makes New York City the largest U.S. city to officially acknowledge that fruits and vegetables have a role to play in preventing chronic degenerative disease — an idea that the FDA insists is delusional. According to the FDA, there is no such thing as any fruit, vegetable, supplement or superfood that has any ability whatsoever to prevent, treat or cure any disease.

“. . . according to the FDA, the mere ‘prescribing’ of a food as something to prevent obesity automatically transforms that food into a ‘drug.’ Under current FDA regulations, then, NYC is guilty of promoting ‘unapproved drugs’ which are really just fruits and vegetables. But that’s how FDA logic works.”

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson just sold out to Big Pharma... says children should be forcibly injected with mercury at gunpoint... claims government 'science' overrides medical freedom

Wow, the 2016 Presidential race is getting more bizarre by the day, it seems, and the latest example of people wandering off into la la land is found in libertarian party candidate Gary Johnson. He just announced that whatever chemicals and viral strains the corrupt, scientifically incompetent federal government decides should be injected into your children must be obediently accepted by parents or they should face arrest, imprisonment or gunpoint enforcement.

Gary Johnson, in other words, has just had official immunization science "splained" to him and has now surrendered the entire idea of liberty upon which the libertarian party was founded. Suddenly, your human rights -- medical choice rights -- are no longer considered inalienable by Gary Johnson, who believes that people should be forced against their will to be injected with toxic substances linked to comas, seizures, autism, cancer, neurological disorders, paralyzation and even death.

These weed killers are specially formulated to pair with genetically modified seeds made to be resistant and unaffected by them. However, as the weeds have gotten stronger and more resilient, Monstanto has had to make its herbicide products stronger as well, adding a chemical called dicamba.

Glyphosate and the weed killer products that contain it have faced quite a bit of controversy lately, and with good reason. The cancer research arm of the World Health Organization has linked the compound glyphosate with cancer in humans and other living beings. Dicamba is largely untested and not yet approved for use in the United States.

Society News Doctors Sue Obama Administration for Forcing Them to Perform Gender Transition Procedures

Five states and a group of religiously-affiliated hospitals and physicians are suing the Obama administration over a federal mandate that forces doctors to perform gender transition procedures on adults and children against their medical judgment.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Texas federal court, attempts to roll back a rule imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services in May that expanded the interpretation of “sex” under the Affordable Care Act to include “gender identity.”

In doing so, the Obama administration added transgender people to the list of protected classes under the Affordable Care Act, which states that individuals can’t be denied certain federally-funded health benefits because of their “race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.”

The move was part of a broader push by President Barack Obama to further transgender rights in the U.S.

Dry Planet: NASA Claims No Liquid Water on Mars

Dark gullies on Mars earlier believed by NASA to be an indicator of the presence of liquid water on the Red Planet appear to contain as much moisture as the driest of Earth’s deserts -- in other words, almost none, according to new research based on observations by the agency’s Mars Odyssey mission.

I'll tell you why NASA keeps whipping back on forth on the issue of water (and life) on Mars. It's to keep the funding flowing! Once NASA says definitively that there is water (or life) on Mars, funding (other than to promote human-caused global warming) will be slashed.
