An American Water Crisis Is Just Around The Corner And No One Is Talking About It

Anyone who pays attention to their local news has seen the signs of a coming apocalypse in the United States, although they are probably not aware of it. While many equate a water crisis to the sucking up of resources by big business interests or an offhanded moment of pollution from the local industry, there is another type water crisis looming over America. It’s not just Coca-Cola and property rights, it’s the failure of municipalities, states, and the federal government to ensure that drinking water is actually drinkable.

SpaceX's three-core Falcon Heavy rocket launch deferred due to US govt shutdown

The US government shutdown has affected SpaceX's test fire of its three-core Falcon Heavy rocket that was scheduled for Monday at the Kennedy Space Centre (KSC), Cape Canaveral.

The launch, unfortunately, had to be deferred indefinitely or till the shutdown is resolved. "Due to the shutdown removing key members of the civilian workforce, the 45th Space Wing will not be able to support commercial static fires taking place on KSC," Florida Today reported.

ALERT: Vaccine advocate threatens mass murder “suicide mission” shooting at public autism event… “I’m gonna kill every single one of you f##kers… see you in Hell”

Thanks to the extreme hatred being whipped up against autism truth advocates by vaccine propagandists such as Jimmy Kimmel, deranged science troll Dr. David Gorski and the “fake news” media that’s beholden to vaccine industry propaganda, vaccine pushers are now resorting to extreme threats of violence and mass shootings to try to silence vaccine truth researchers, authors and lecturers.

In the last 48 hours, Dr. Suzanne Humphries, creator of the Honesty vs. Policy presentation and author of Dissolving Illusions — which expertly dismantles the most persistent myths of the pseudoscience vaccine industry — received a shockingly detailed death threat that promises a “suicide mission” mass shooting at a public autism event.

Microwaves emit as much carbon dioxide as nearly 7 million cars: Study

Many studies have shown how microwave radiation can be harmful while heating food as the appliance can significantly zap the nutritional value of your food and your health, leaving you susceptible to developing health complications due to continuous microwave use.

Now, another study has found that the radiations from microwaves can have serious environmental implications as well.

As per the findings of the study, microwave ovens across Europe alone emit as much carbon dioxide as nearly 7 million cars.

CDC Accused Of Inflating Flu Case Statistics

Are flu cases being exaggerated? According to some new documentation received by Vaxxter.com, the CDC is inflating cases of flu by essentially loosely tying family members who diagnose cases to diagnoses by relation.

If the document, which was received anonymously, is true, it would allow the CDC to severely inflate flu case statistics. And this, in turn, would allow more flu shots to be pushed.

'Benefits are exaggerated': Doctors urged to be 'inherently sceptical' about statins

THE benefits of statins are exaggerated and their side effects downplayed, claims a new report calling for all trial data on the drug to be released “as a matter of urgency”.

The article published in the British Journal Of Sports Medicine says doctors should be “inherently sceptical” when prescribing the controversial heart drug to people with a low risk of heart disease.

Written by the investigative reporter Dr Maryanne Demasi, it argues that statistics about the drug have been manipulated to play up its benefits.

Many trials have been carried out by drugs companies involved in their manufacture, she says, and are “tainted by industry sponsorship”.

And she claims the raw trial data is unavailable to public scrutiny, a practice Dr Demasi describes as a “contemptible breach in transparency”.

Mother of patient left in cold says her daughter was denied care

The mother of a mentally ill woman who was left outside a Baltimore hospital on a frigid night wearing only a flimsy gown and socks asserted she was denied care by medical professionals and left to face life-threatening conditions on the street. Cheryl Chandler said she was only made aware of her missing 22-year-old daughter's predicament on the night of Jan. 9 when she happened upon a viral video shot by a passer-by who was enraged at the way she was treated.

"I didn't even know that it was my daughter initially," Chandler told CBS News. "As he got close enough, I saw it was her and I got hysterical because in that moment, it was sheer fear that my daughter was going to die."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A society is only as good as its compassion for the most fragile among it; unfortunately, here in the US, we frequently see a massive propensity toward cruelty, and feigning ignorance, when one of its most vulnerable, like Rebecca, gets caught in the cracks of the system.

Dumping her at a bus stop, in her hospital garb, at sub-freezing temperatures?!?

This... is what "American compassion" looks like for far too many of its fragile members.

FLASHBACK - Clinton Foundation AIDS Program Distributed ‘Watered-Down’ Drugs To Third World Countries

Former President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed “watered-down” HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and “likely increased” the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The congressional report, titled,“The Clinton Foundation and The India Success Story,” was initiated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican and vice-chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The CHAI program to help AIDS victims is considered one of the Clinton Foundation’s most important contributions and is probably its best known initiative.

The congressional report focused on Clinton’s decade-long relationship with a controversial Indian drug manufacturer called Ranbaxy, which CHAI used as one of its main distributors of HIV/AIDS drugs to Third World countries.

Astronauts may soon have no way to reach NASA's $100 billion space station

NASA has spent the better part of 20 years and $100 billion working on the International Space Station.

But in a couple of years, astronauts may have no way to get to and from the US space agency's football-field-size laboratory in the sky, according to testimonies from government officials on Wednesday.

The problem is a lack of available spaceships, both foreign and domestic.

NASA contracted Boeing and SpaceX to build a safer and more cost-effective replacement for its space shuttle, which was retired in July 2011. The original contracts called for certification and regular flights with astronauts by the end of 2017, but that didn't happen.

To fill the gap while the companies developed their spaceships, NASA purchased seats aboard Russia's Soyuz spacecraft.

Delays by Boeing and SpaceX prompted the space agency to purchase more seats — at exorbitant prices — but it appears even that option will soon expire.

Massive flu outbreak? Here’s the real story the media won’t touch. The lies, the hoax, the scandal. Jan15

Why is this year’s vaccine ineffective? Because it’s made using chicken eggs, and researchers have discovered that the flu virus—which is placed in the vaccine—mutates in chicken eggs.

Therefore, by the time a person takes the flu shot, he’s not being protected against this year’s seasonal flu virus. He’s being protected against a mutated virus that isn’t causing the flu this year.

This is the conventional explanation. If you think it’s the whole story, I have condos for sale on the moon.

You see, vaccines have been made using chicken eggs—not just this year—but for the past 70 years.

Oops.

NASA's small nuclear reactor to power habitat on Mars

To provide safe and plentiful energy for future robotic and human missions for Mars and beyond, NASA is conducting experiments on Kilopower -- a small nuclear reactor that can generate a reliable power supply.

This pioneering space fission power system could provide up to 10 kilowatts of electrical power -- enough to run two average households -- continuously for at least 10 years, the US space agency said in a statement on Friday.

Four Kilopower units would provide enough power to establish an outpost.

‘It might get ugly:’ Bay Area cities brace for ICE sweeps

Swarming federal agents who are conducting raids and arrests will lead to people getting killed.This part of Cali's reaction appears to be a Seditious Conspiracy which may snowball into an Insurrection.

Fear is growing in immigrant communities that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is getting ready to launch massive raids across California — a threat that activists and politicians say is retaliation against the Golden State’s bold “sanctuary” policies.

ICE director Thomas Homan recently told Fox News that the agency will significantly increase enforcement across the state and warned California to “hold on tight.” And a report by the San Francisco Chronicle this week said ICE is planning raids targeting Northern California cities, with the goal of arresting more than 1,500 immigrants.

New Colorado Bill Could Implement Nanotechnology to Track Legal Cannabis

By Derrick Broze

A new Colorado bill would require the implementation of technology to scan cannabis to determine whether it was legally purchased.

Colorado lawmakers have introduced a new bill which would require the development of “marijuana tracking technology” to help law enforcement distinguish between legal and illegally purchased cannabis. The bill, SB18-029, was introduced by Representatives Leroy Garcia, Daniel Pabon, Kent D. Lambert and Yeulin Willett on January 10 under the title “Development of Marijuana Tracking Technology.”...

Engineering Faster Planes in WWII: Kelly Johnson, the P-38 and the P-80

It's unique twin-boom and central nacelle (for the cockpit) design gave it great stability and maneuverability at higher speeds than other planes offered... Until it entered a steep dive.

Head Skunk

The name of the super-secret project was Suntan. It was to be the ultimate reconnaissance airplane, flying so high and so fast—it was to cruise above 100,000 feet at Mach 2—that detection would be unlikely and interception impossible. But it also would have been a giant winged thermos bottle, with a fuel tank full of liquid hydrogen at –400 degrees Fahrenheit and its outer skin baking at 350 degrees or more. A proposed hydrogen liquefaction plant dedicated to producing fuel for several of the airplanes would have sucked up 10 percent of the natural gas supply of Los Angeles in two years. Flying the highly unstable and explosive liquid to the airplanes’ bases would have required a fleet of heavy transports. An accident with one of the transports would have made the Hindenburg disaster look like a campfire.

Texas girl suffers violent hallucinations after taking FDA-approved Tamiflu

The girls’ family ended up getting a lot more than they bargained for after giving her daughter the medication, with a range of scary side effects taking hold, including hallucinations and attempts at self-harm.

According to her father, the young girl used a desk to try to jump out of the second-story window in her bedroom. Fortunately, her mother caught her just in time to save her from taking what could have been a deadly leap. She also ran away from school.

When they brought her to the hospital, the doctor there told them that nervous system problems like psychosis are among the potential side effects of Tamiflu, although it is technically listed as being rare.

The chemical death of cancer cells creates inflammation, which feeds cancer growth: Yet another study links chemotherapy to the SPREAD of cancer

Chemotherapy is no walk in the park, yet many people subject themselves to its unpleasant effects in hopes of healing their cancer. Unfortunately, it could all be in vain as yet another concerning study has shown that chemotherapy can actually spread the very disease it is intended to stop.

In a study by the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, radiation and chemotherapy treatments that kill tumor cells were found to cause cancerous tumors to grow bigger and more prolific. In fact, the dying cancer cells that chemotherapy set into motion actually trigger the inflammation that causes tumors to grow more aggressively.

Deaths from synthetic opioids have risen from 3,000 to over 20,000 in just three years – and the carnage is expected to continue

The tragic cases of two suburban Atlanta teens succumbing to opioid overdose added to the growing and worsening number of deaths associated with drug overdose across the country. A report published in the Life Zette website revealed that deaths involving synthetic opioids grew from 3,000 to 20,000 within a three-year period, which marked a 560 percent increase in related deaths.

Reports have also pointed out that a vast majority of deaths were associated with fentanyl. According to reports, nearly 15,000 of these deaths were tied to cheaper and more lethal forms of heroin from China, which were then distributed by Mexican drug cartels.

Study: Flu Vaccination Makes the Flu Worse

New research just published confirms what other studies have already shown: that the H1N1 swine flu vaccine actually made flu symptoms worse. This was widely reported in 2010 in Canada, after the flu season that year.

The new research just published examined swine that received the H1N1 vaccine, and were subsequently exposed to a related strain of the same virus they were vaccinated for. The result: “enhanced pneumonia and disease after H1N1 infection.”

FLASHBACK - Vaccination may make flu worse if exposed to a second strain

A new study in the U.S. has shown that pigs vaccinated against one strain of influenza were worse off if subsequently infected by a related strain of the virus.

Microbiologist Dr. Hana Golding of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at Bethesda in Maryland and colleagues at the National Animal Disease Center in Ames, Iowa and elsewhere, vaccinated "naive" piglets (those that had never been exposed to flu viruses) against the H1N2 influenza strain and later exposed them to the rare H1N1 virus, which is the virus responsible for the 2009 swine flu pandemic.

FLASHBACK - Vaccine-Induced Anti-HA2 Antibodies Promote Virus Fusion and Enhance Influenza Virus Respiratory Disease

Vaccine-induced disease enhancement has been described in connection with several viral vaccines in animal models and in humans. We investigated a swine model to evaluate mismatched influenza vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease (VAERD) after pH1N1 infection. Vaccinating pigs with whole inactivated H1N2 (human-like) virus vaccine (WIV-H1N2) resulted in enhanced pneumonia and disease after pH1N1 infection. WIV-H1N2 immune sera contained high titers of cross-reactive anti-pH1N1 hemagglutinin (HA) antibodies that bound exclusively to the HA2 domain but not to the HA1 globular head. No hemagglutination inhibition titers against pH1N1 (challenge virus) were measured. Epitope mapping using phage display library identified the immunodominant epitope recognized by WIV-H1N2 immune sera as amino acids 32 to 77 of pH1N1-HA2 domain, close to the fusion peptide.

Unfortunately, what started as a fairly ridiculous meme about how delicious-looking the detergent-filled gel pods are has spiraled into a dangerous meme, with people actually filming themselves eating the blighted poison packs for a shot at 15 minutes of internet fame in the “Tide Pod challenge.”

That buck stops here though, with YouTube commenting that it would remove any Tide Pod challenge videos, noting in a statement to Fast Company that “YouTube’s Community Guidelines prohibit content that’s intended to encourage dangerous activities that have an inherent risk of physical harm.

WATCH: PRESIDENT TRUMP EXPLAINS WHY HE DOESN’T GET THE FLU SHOT

Unless you’re totally committed to the flu hysteria, it makes s lot of sense to question the flu vaccine narrative.

Which is apparently how President Trump feels.

In a 2015 interview with Sirius XM’s Opie and Jim Norton, Donald Trump was asked if gets a flu shot. His response was informed by a common experience: after once getting the flu shot, he got more sick than ever, then vowed never to do it again.

In other words, many people get the flu after getting the flu shot. How they factor this reality into the statistics at the CDC is unknown, but in the worst flu season in recent memory, with half the people getting the shot, you have to wonder if the shot isn’t partly to blame for the high levels of sick people.

Pennsylvania Lawmaker Seeks to Inform Parents of Vaccine Dangers Before Immunization

Pennsylvania state legislature Senator ,Mike Folmer, is seeking support for a law that would require medical professionals to obtain informed consent from parents, which would require that they be told of potential risks associated with the ingredients of vaccines. Folmer says the present laws limit parental rights to refuse vaccines and violate the constitutional right of due process.

The Unhealthiest State in America Has the Best Vaccination Rate: Offit’s Orwellian Logic Fails to Connect the Dots

In a Daily Beast opinion piece on December 15, Paul Offit—one of the vaccine industry’s most strident ambassadors—puzzles over a seeming contradiction. How, Offit wonders, could the state of Mississippi, which has “the worst overall health in the nation,” have used standout “efficiency” to achieve over 99.4% vaccine coverage in kindergartners? Rather than seriously investigate this apparent enigma, Offit presents his ready-made answer and reveals his article’s true purpose. According to Paul Offit, Mississippi’s high vaccination rates are due to the state’s 1979 decision to make the government—rather than parents—the primary vaccine decision-maker for children.
