LAWSUIT: Former FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg bribed her way into the FDA by handing over money to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

According to a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Margaret Hamburg, the former head of the Food and Drug Administration, is accused of using the agency to operate a huge conspiracy of racketeering and fraud so that she could generate millions of Big Pharma profits for a hedge fund involving her husband.

The suit alleges that while acting as the commissioner of the FDA, Hamburg was engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to approve a very dangerous drug that was known to cause severe and even deadly side effects, as it would financially benefit her husband's hedge fund, which at the time held large positions in the drug's maker, Johnson & Johnson.

"Defendants, each and every one of them, operated a criminal conspiracy at least between the years 2009 to 2015 to fraudulently suppress warnings about the devastating effects of Levaquin," the complaint noted.

The vaccine empire strikes back: Rumors swirl that Dr. Thompson has been bought off by the CDC and will submit 'reanalyzed' MMR research to destroy vaccine safety skeptics

Rumors have been swirling over the weekend that the CDC is planning a major offensive against vaccine safety skeptics due to the remarkable popularity of the VAXXED documentary film. As censorship of the film spectacularly backfired, more people became aware of the "CDC whistleblower" Dr. William Thompson, the subject of the documentary film. Dr. Thompson publicly confessed to taking part in a scientific fraud at the CDC to alter data that linked vaccines to autism in African-American boys.

Now Dr. Thompson has been turned by the CDC where he is still employed, explained investigator Brian Hooker, PhD, in a panel discussion at the Manhattan Film Festival. According to Dr. Hooker, Dr. Thompson has been promised a large research foundation and a "major cash award" by the CDC to stay employed with the agency where his research is set to be "reanalyzed" to eliminate any link between vaccines and autism.

Metro sank into crisis despite decades of warnings

Metro’s failure-prone subway — once considered a transportation jewel — is mired in disrepair because the transit agency neglected to heed warnings that its aging equipment and poor safety culture would someday lead to chronic breakdowns and calamities.

For nearly half a century, almost since construction of the subway system began, federal experts, civic and business groups, private transit organizations, and some Metro general managers and directors have raised red flags.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Part of Agenda 21 is to get people to surrender their cars and rely on mass public transportation. But the systems being built are costly, unreliable, and unsafe!

Africa's Largest Cotton Producer Bans Use of GMO Cotton

Burkina Faso, Africa's top cotton producer and the sole West African nation to venture into biotech farming, is dropping genetically-modified (GM) cotton on quality grounds. The world's 10th largest cotton producer, with four of its 19 million people dependent on the "white gold", Burkina Faso earlier this month said it was giving up Monsanto's GM Bt cotton because it had proved uneconomical.

University of Florida Holds First Brain-Powered Drone Race

The brain drone race is the first of its kind, according to Juan Gilbert, a professor of computer science at the University of Florida where the competition took place. The race works by fitting pilots with a Brain Computer Interface device, which sits on users’ heads and measures electrical signals from the brain. Users “think forward,” to move the drone forward, and “think right or left” to move it from side to side.

River of Fire: Politician Makes Intense Video to Illustrate the Dangers of Fracking

By Matt Agorist

Five years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was commissioned by Congress to undertake a study on the impacts of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on drinking water. This newer method of oil and gas extraction involves the pumping of highly pressurized water, sand and chemicals into underground rock formations.

Fracking has driven the boom in U.S. oil production and contributed to the steep drop in gasoline prices, but the environmental impacts of this relatively new technique are not well understood.

The EPA’s draft study—released in June to solicit input from advisers and the public—found that fracking has already contaminated drinking water..

Flint water treatment plant foreman was found dead days before three of his colleagues were charged over the city's contaminated water crisis 

The death of a Water Treatment Plant foreman, who was found dead at his home on April 16 by a friend who went to visit him, comes amid charges against three men involved in the city's water crisis.

Flint Mayor Karen Weaver announced the sudden death of foreman, Matthew McFarland on Thursday.

A friend discovered the 43-year-old's body when he went to visit him at his Otter Lake home last Saturday, according to MLive.

His death comes as Flint's water plant deals with the attorney general's announcement of three men facing criminal charges in connection with the city's water crisis.

Gagging The Scientists: Britain’s Proposed Rules

Has the British political establishment had an atrophying episode on the science front? Suggestions that this might be the case came last week when there were suggestions that a gag of Britain’s scientists might be in the works. The Cabinet Office had busied itself with proposals in February that, if implemented, would prevent organisations from using tax-payer funds to lobby parliamentarians.

WATCH: Australian MP lights river near gas fracking site on fire

You may not want to light a match near the Condamine River in Queensland, Australia or you might catch fire.

Jeremy Buckingham, an Australian MP for the Green Party, uploaded a video to his Facebook page showing him on a boat in the middle of the river, lighting the surface of the water on fire as what appears to be methane gas bubbles up from the depths.

The exact moment Buckingham lights his lighter above a gas seep, a section of river immediately caught on fire forcing Buckingham to jump to the other side of the boat – while using an appropriate expletive anyone would use if a wall of flames was about to engulf you.

“Unbelievable, a river on fire,” said Buckingham wide eyed.

Japan panel greenlights gene editing of human eggs for basic study

A government bioethics panel on Friday approved gene modifications of fertilized human eggs for basic research purposes, while rejecting the technology’s clinical use due partly to the unknown impact on the next generation. Studies on so-called genome editing are under way to use it for animals, plants and human body cells, but whether the technology should be applicable to fertilized human eggs is being debated worldwide after Chinese scientists reported gene editing of human embryos last year, in what was believed to be the world’s first such case.

Even the Thought of Earning Less than Their Wives Compells Former Male Hillary Supporters to Swtch to Trump T

Merely asking the question about spousal income led to enormous shifts in men’s preferences in the upcoming presidential election.

Men who weren’t asked about spousal income until late in the survey preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in a hypothetical general election matchup by a 16-point margin; men who were asked about spousal income only a few questions before being asked about the Clinton-Trump matchup preferred Trump by an eight-point margin — a 24-point shift in preferences.

The conclusion that this is about gender is reinforced by the fact that the spousal income question had no effect at all on a matchup between Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Fructose Alters Hundreds of Brain Genes, Leads to Wide Range of Diseases

Consuming fructose, a sugar that’s common in the Western diet, alters hundreds of genes that may be linked to many diseases, life scientists report.
However, the researchers discovered good news as well: An omega-3 fatty acid known as docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, seems to reverse the harmful changes produced by fructose.

“DHA changes not just one or two genes; it seems to push the entire gene pattern back to normal, which is remarkable,” said Xia Yang, a senior author of the study and a UCLA assistant professor of integrative biology and physiology. “And we can see why it has such a powerful effect.”

Misdiagnosis can kill: Young woman suffers from agonizing pain after 7 years of unnecessary chemotherapy

A specialist at Guy's Hospital, London, now believes that Kirsty has been misdiagnosed and has received damaging treatments, including chemotherapy, for a condition she does not have. He believes her symptoms, including chronic pain and seizures, could be due to a genetic skin and bone disorder such as Ehlers–Danlos syndrome (EDS).

"I can't believe it. Kirsty has been receiving chemotherapy, steroids and all sorts of damaging stuff, which she might not have needed. If it's EDS she should have been having vital physiotherapy and she hasn't had any for seven years. I've read so much about lupus for years and now I've got to start again with something else. I'm so angry," Kirsty's mom said after the medical appointment at Guy's Hospital.

Controversial $400bn F-35 fighter jet now has computer 'brain' problem which could see entire fleet grounded

Lack of testing on software may mean it's not ready for its deployment
The problem is with the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS)
Major issue is data produced by ALIS goes through a on operating unit
The lack of back up could mean that the entire feet has to be grounded.

The issue is with what the Department of Defense officials call the 'brains' of plane, also known as the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS).
A Government Accountability Office report says a failure 'could take the entire fleet offline' because there is no backup system.
The report also says a lack of testing done of the software will mean it's not ready for its deployment by the Air Force in August and the Navy in 2018.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the myriad reasons I would strongly caution the President, Pentagon, and State Department against any major wars against Russia or China right now.

In Russia and China, when weapons are delivered, they field test as advertised, or better.

But unfortunately, the US weapons systems are many times delivered very late, very much over budget, and do not live up at all to the weapons developers' hype.

There is a problem with the institutional culture of US weaponry, because weapons companies' executives will support every Congressional representative with money to get all the weapons contracts they possibly can.

It is painfully clear that this F-35 is an absolute turkey, which continues to cost Americans billions of dollars, with no real correction of its problems and flaws in sight.

US suicide rate hits 30-year high, female rate spikes while males are majority

A new analysis by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has reported that the rate of suicide in the US steadily increased from 1999 to 2014 after consistently decreasing from 1986 to 1999. The report found that greater annual rises occurred after 2006.

From 1999 to 2014, suicide rates increased for males and females of all ages between 10 and 74, the NCHS revealed Friday. Only those aged 75 and older saw declines in suicides in that time period.

The rate of suicide among women is climbing at a rate faster than men. The age-adjusted suicide rate for females increased by 45 percent from 1999 to 2014, as opposed to an increase of 16 percent for males.

However, males (20.7) still hold a suicide rate that is triple the rate of female (5.8) suicide.

AFTER FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM, 76-YO VET SENTENCED TO DIE IN PRISON FOR TREATING HIS ILLNESS WITH CANNABIS

As public frustration helps sound the death knell for the drug war, its arbitrary laws and policies appear even more absurd. In the latest inexcusable enforcement of an antiquated law, 76-year-old disabled veteran Lee Carroll Brooker will live out what should be his golden years behind bars — for simple possession of cannabis.

Brooker had been treating multiple chronic conditions with cannabis he grew in his son’s backyard; but when officials in Alabama officials discovered the three dozen plants, they threw him in prison for life — without the possibility of parole.

Thanks to a pointless mandatory minimum sentencing catchall — and the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear his case this week — Brooker has been left little recourse but to ultimately die in jail for treating his ailments with a plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The prosecutor in this case must be very pleased with himself; another scalp on the belt, I am sure, must have made him nothing less than ecstatic.

And that the Supreme Court refused to hear it makes them culpable in the quicker death this man in prison than he would most likely have had outside of captivity.

But the way this case came down, on a 76 year old, decorated Veteran, dealing with multiple, chronic illnesses has to be insult to injury, and never should have happened.

This is what happens when you have a "one size fits all" piece of legislation which is so clumsily constructed that there is no room for either mercy or justice.

Costco Financing Organic Farmers to meet with High Consumer Demand

By AnonWatcher
If you want to go organic, go to Costco’s. It seems that Costco can’t get enough organic fruit and vegetables to supply its customers; and is now bypassing its competitor Whole Foods with a whopping $4 billion in its annual organic sales.

In a bid to assist the supply to their warehouses, Costco is lending money to farmers to help them purchase land and equipment to grow more organic produce.

Costco CEO Craig Jelinek told investors in Washington earlier this year “We cannot get enough organics to stay in business day in and day out.”...

RESEARCHERS ACCIDENTALLY MAKE BATTERIES LAST 400 TIMES LONGER

Smartphones, tablets, and most other electronics rely on rechargeable batteries, but after a few thousand uses the batteries start to lose their ability to hold a charge. The batteries of today are mainly lithium, and over time that lithium corrodes inside the battery.

Instead of lithium, researchers at UC Irvine have used gold nanowires to store electricity, and have found that their system is able to far outlast traditional lithium battery construction. The Irvine team's system cycled through 200,000 recharges without significant corrosion or decline.

However, they don't exactly know why.

GMO poison to be carpet bombed across 10,000 acres of Western Washington to kill moths

Washington residents should brace themselves for an aerial assault of GMO poison that is being launched throughout the Western part of the state in an attempt to prevent a widespread gypsy moth infestation.

Last weekend saw the launch of a pesticide-bacteria spraying campaign that was authorized by Washington State's Department of Agriculture (WSDA). The areas affected include around 7,000 acres near the Port of Tacoma, 640 acres along Old Pacific Highway SE near the Nisqually River, 600 acres near Gig Harbor, 640 acres near Kent, and 640 acres just north of the Lacey area.

The aim of this program is to kill European and Asian gypsy moths. The bacteria, which is known as Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has pesticide properties. In fact, the gene that is used to kill insects in GM crops actually comes from this bacteria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in effect, every edible plant in Washington State is now GMO!

'Impossible' EmDrive flying saucer thruster may herald new theory of inertia

An explanation for Roger Shawyer's seemingly impossible EmDrive has been offered.

The RF resonant cavity thruster was first proposed by British aerospace engineer Roger Shawyer in 1999. It bounces microwaves around within a cone-nosed container, with the container moving in the direction of the cone end.

Despite skepticism from the scientific priesthood – who are adamant that an EmDrive would violate the conservation principle – tests in Germany, China and at NASA have corroborated that the EmDrive produces thrust that could not be explained.

The amounts of thrust produced by experimental EmDrives so far is rather small – but are enough to nudge the orbit of a satellite.

The promise is of a propulsion technology that enables high speed interstellar travel – but with only minimal fuel.

Industry Whistleblower Claims This is What’s Really Killing Honeybees

In an interview with Miles Johnston, Gabe revealed that he used to work in the mobile or cell phone industry in Britain, and was trained to understand frequencies and bandwidth. As part of his job, he used to carry around a backpack containing all sorts of devices of varying frequencies.
Webmaster addition: This appears to be an attempt to shift the blame for the bee die-offs away from the biotech industry. Cell phones started wide-spread use in the 1980s, and the frequencies used by cell phones were in use by other systems prior to that. The bees did not suffer any adverse effects during all that time. Bee colony collapse became widespread during the 2000s, as GMO crops and associated pesticides came into wide use.

EXCLUSIVE: Quaker instant oatmeal and Silk non-GMO soy creamer found contaminated with alarming levels of glyphosate weed killer... and they're not even GMO!

According to glyphosate laboratory testing conducted at Microbe Inotech Laboratories, Inc., in St. Louis, the Quaker Instant Oatmeal (Strawberries and Cream) sample tested at the lab contains an astonishing 1,327.1 ppb (parts per billion) of glyphosate weed killer.

The test results, achieved via the ELISA methodology (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay), are astonishing for two reasons:

1) They are extremely high, far surpassing the levels of glyphosate that have so far been detected in other foods.

2) Oats are not GMO! While glyphosate might be expected at some concentrations in GM soy and other herbicide resistant crops, very few people are aware that glyphosate is being routinely sprayed on wheat, barley and oat crops as a powerful desiccant, right before harvest.

Using lead pipes to carry water supply was stopped after 1970, but a new study shows they may have links to violent crime

The use of lead in water pipes has been linked to cities with soaring murder rates , according to a new study.

US cities which were found to have lead water pipes were also found to have higher murder rates in the first half of the 20th century.

The report says that on average “cities that used lead water pipes had homicide rates that were twenty-four percent higher than cities that did not".

Japan faces fresh earthquake panic as 6.1 magnitude tremor hits coast near Fukushima nuclear plant

Japan was plunged into fresh panic today as a 6.1 magnitude tremor hit the northern coast - the third major earthquake within a week.

The tremors struck near the northern island on Honshu around 60 miles southeast on Sendai.

To the dismay of rattled survivors, the latest quake happened close to the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster - which saw 15,000 killed in March 2011.

Billionaire Koch brothers allegedly fund pro-uranium mining plans in Grand Canyon – report

Moguls Charles and David Koch are reportedly funding an Arizona-based company that's been pushing against a plan to make Grand Canyon area a natural monument with no uranium mining allowed.

Those who are in favor of the plan include the majority of local residents, environmental groups and Native American tribes.

In January, a survey showed that over 80 percent of Arizonans supported the proposal, and nearly half of the population specifically said that more should be done to protect the Grand Canyon and the 7,000 square kilometers around it.

6 Reasons Why Most Scientific Research is Fake, False or Fraudulent

How often do scientists smugly quote the latest research on a topic only later to be made the fool by insider revelations that published research in peer-reviewed journals is abjectly false? This happens so frequently now, that it has become clear: Science is broken, and most scientific research is fraudulent.

It isn’t broken like a bike needing a new tire, or even an outdated paradigm that has reached its tipping point, as in the time of the renaissance. Modern science is broken for reasons that might shock you.

First, there’s a replication crisis. More and more studies simply cannot be replicated, so any false theories are not thrown out, but left floating as acceptable ‘fact’ in the hallowed scientific ethers, when they are nothing more than studies paid for and promoted by the companies who have a marked interest in proving their personal hypothesis.

Chemotherapy kills far more Americans than all acts of war, suicide and terrorism combined

Since 2000, according to the tracking site Pharma Death Clock, more than 16.3 million people have died from chemotherapy – more than wars, terrorism and suicide, combined.

"While drug companies profit billions, people are dying by the millions," the site notes.

In addition to chemotherapy, there are scores of other deaths that were all caused by modern medicine, like hospital errors (as of this writing 7,176,929), medical error (1,598,497), hospital infections (1,223,340) and surgery-related death (521,958), among others.

Flint, Michigan water quality scientists charged with felony conspiracies... altered lead contamination data... committed scientific fraud that harmed the public

The charges filed include felony official misconduct, conspiracy and tampering with evidence. The individuals charged with the crimes now face up to five years in prison. While serving time in prison, ironically, they will likely receive cleaner water than what they fed to the residents of Flint.

What's notable here is that one of the individuals, Mike Prysby, is an official with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). I have personally come to know that the DEQ of Michigan is an extremely corrupt, criminally-run organization, so it's absolutely no surprise to me that this individual allegedly committed fraud as part of the cover-up.

Koch brothers behind group attempting to derail ban on uranium mining in Grand Canyon: report

Billionaire businessmen Charles and David Koch are channeling money into an Arizona-based organization that’s fighting a plan that would include a permanent ban on uranium mining around the Grand Canyon.

A proposal to declare the area around the Grand Canyon a national monument – Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument – calls for protecting 1.7m acres of land from uranium mining. A number of environmental groups and native tribes as well as the vast majority of Arizonans support the plan.

Still, a handful of Arizona Republicans and a major not-for-profit group are trying to block it. Much of the group’s efforts apparently are being funded by the Koch brothers, according to Greg Zimmerman of the Center for Western Priorities.

The World Health Organization is finally raising concerns about antidepressants prescribed to children

There is such a dramatic increase in the prescribing of antidepressants for children in the West, that the World Health Organization (WHO) is taking a closer look – and is becoming concerned.

As reported by the BBC, the increases are sizable: 60 percent in Denmark; 49 percent in Germany; 26 percent in the United States; and 17 percent in the Netherlands, between 2005 and 2012, a new study shows.

After a warning was issued about the drugs in 2004, based on concerns that some of them were leading to suicidal behavior, usage fell. But as new research indicates, the numbers are back up – way up, in fact.

TEFLON TOXIN CONTAMINATION HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

IN RECENT MONTHS, PFOA, the perfluorinated chemical formerly used to make Teflon, has been making news again. Also known as C8, because of its eight-carbon molecule, PFOA has been found in drinking water in Hoosick Falls, New York; Bennington, Vermont; Flint, Michigan; and Warrington, Pennsylvania, among many other places across the United States. Although the chemical was developed and long manufactured in the United States, it’s not just an American problem. PFOA has spread throughout the world.

In early April, a contingent from Keep Your Promises DuPont, an activist group representing residents of West Virginia and Ohio, traveled to the Netherlands and met with local politicians, scientists, Dordrecht residents, and the union representing workers at the plant.

Private Tests Show Cancer-Linked Herbicide in Breakfast Foods; FDA mum on Its Assessments

If you started your day off with a whole wheat bagel and a bowl of instant strawberries-and-cream-flavored oatmeal today, you might think you made some fairly healthy breakfast choices.

You might want to think again.

According to a report released Tuesday by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, testing procured from an independent laboratory found detectable levels of the herbicide glyphosate in oatmeal and bagels as well as coffee creamer and seven more products, for a total of 10 out of 24 breakfast food items showing levels of glyphosate - a chemical the World Health Organization’s cancer experts have linked to cancer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cumulative effect of glyphosate has a murderous effect on the human system; Monsanto executives, and executives of the other large manufacturers of this kind of product product, should be tried, and convicted, for crimes against humanity.

Obama’s UK visit: The hostile reception for US president over Brexit vote ‘meddling’

Looks like Obama's Brit trip is going well.

US President Barack Obama arrives in the UK on Thursday to urge the British public to vote to ‘remain’ in the European Union in the June 23 Brexit referendum. Since the presidential visit was announced, however, critics have told him to “butt out.”
“This is an unwelcome interference from the most anti-British American president there has ever been. Mercifully, he won’t be in office for much longer,” Farage said.

Senior Tory ‘leave’ campaigners have been just as withering in their commentary, with US-born London Mayor Boris Johnson accusing Obama of “outrageous and exorbitant hypocrisy.”

Avoiding Disaster

Many people today are addicted to this drug. We’re flooded with advertisements and endorsements from our sports heroes, telling us how great this drug is. It tastes delicious, is convenient, cheap, adds no nutritional value, and is completely unsustainable. It takes tons of fossil fuels to produce, ship, package, and market to you. It can sustain you, but gives you nothing.

What I’m talking about is industrially produced, highly processed, hyper-palatable food. These foods flood our markets, taking over the center of our grocery stores. We’re told they’re fortified with all the vitamins and minerals we need to lead healthy lives. We’re told it’s completely safe to consume. It resembles nothing close to what we are biologically designed to eat. In fact, instead of providing us with nutrition, it can actually cause a slow, painful death. What do you think of it now? Do you still feel compelled to eat it?

Flint water crisis defendants could lead to higher-ups

The first round of criminal charges against three men involved in the handling of the Flint water crisis will likely set the stage for a broader investigation that could reach higher, legal experts say.

"That's how you build these cases, you start from the lower levels and work your way up," said Peter Henning, a former federal prosecutor who now teaches law at Wayne State University. "The question is how much can the lower level help? Nobody is ever satisfied with getting the sort of mid-level bureaucrat."

Charged today were Mike Glasgow, Flint's laboratory and water quality supervisor; Mike Prysby, a Michigan Department of Environmental Quality official, and Stephen Busch, the suspended Lansing district coordinator of the Department of Environmental Quality's Office of Drinking Water and Municipal Assistance.

FLASHBACK: Ted Cruz Busted Lying About Losing His Insurance Due To Obamacare, He Still Has Coverage

On Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz declared that he and his wife have no health insurance because their carrier canceled their policy due to Obamacare.

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s campaign on Friday said the Texas senator never lost his health insurance — contradicting his claim a day earlier that his plan had been canceled due to Obamacare. Campaign spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told the Wall Street Journal that Cruz’s insurance broker told him he had lost coverage after Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas terminated his preferred provider organization, or PPO, on Dec. 31. But he had actually been automatically enrolled by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas in a “health maintenance organization” plan that kept him covered in January.

SCIENTISTS WORK TO DESTROY OLD POLIO VACCINE AFTER ADMITTING IT CAUSES POLIO

Clinics around the world are destroying an old, problematic polio vaccine in favor of a new oral one, in an unprecedented effort that has never before been attempted.
The problem with the old vaccine? It was causing polio. Oops.

The massive global eradication effort takes place within the next few weeks at thousands of sites in 155 different countries, and requires a complete destruction of every single vial of the vaccine for the worldwide plan to work.

“Health workers have been taught to destroy the old vaccine by boiling it, incinerating it, even burying it in the ground,” reports NPR.org.

The old vaccine, health experts claim, targeted a polio strain – type 2 – that has been all but wiped out since 1999. Since vaccines contain live, but weakened strains of the viruses they intend to fight, the strains often mutate and can cause polio.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you are a parent of a kid who is scheduled for a polio vaccine injection, email this article to your Doctor's office, and ask them if they are aware as to whether they are using the old vaccine, or the new one.

If they do not know, cancel that appointment until they do, and let your kid's school know precisely why Johnny isn't getting his polio vaccine jab.

In a just world, the head of vaccine manufacturers, knowing this was the case, would be headed off to jail for most of the rest of their miserable lives; but after the Homeland Security Act in 2002, which held vaccine makers harmless and indemnified them from ANY damage their products might cause, when it comes to pharmaceuticals, the US is no long a just country.

I am NOT an anti-vaxxer; but in the world of pharmaceutical trickery, thuggery, and sharp practices which puts profits uber alles, I have learned that knowledge is power.

So arm yourselves, intellectually, with knowledge before you ever let a physician stick a needle into your arm, or the arm of someone you love.

Patient complaints about Dr. David Gorski are just the beginning... why Karmanos Cancer Institute patients must save their own lives from mentally deranged doctors

If you ask people to comment on cancer surgeon Dr. David Gorski ("ORAC"), a lot of words and phrases get repeated with striking frequency. "Sociopath" "Hate monger" "Pathological liar" and even "A danger to society."

It's little surprise that Dr. Gorski's own patients also warn about his hateful demeanor and bizarre neglect of patient care. In a patient review titled "Egomaniac," one patient says Dr. David Gorski is a "Garbage doctor with his nose up in the air and a head too big to fit through the door."

Another patient, Barbara L., posted, "I felt like I was in the way. As if this doctor didn't want to see me as a patient. As if my health problems aren't difficult enough without an uninvolved, not helpful doctor. Ugh. I am going to see someone else next time."

Former NBC boss asserts his grandson damaged by vaccines

Now, in the wake of the unsuccessful attempt to censor the film Vaxxed (trailer), we have Bob Wright, the former CEO of media giant, NBC Universal, authoring a new book, “The Wright Stuff: From NBC to Autism Speaks.”

In its review of the book, Accuracy in Media provides a devastating quote from Wright about his autistic grandson:

“Right after he got the standard one-year vaccinations, he developed a very high fever and screamed for hours. Katie [Wright’s daughter] was so frightened she called her husband to come home from work and they put the baby in an ice bath to bring down the fever. When they called the doctor they were told the reaction was completely normal.”

Yes, completely normal in the eyes of a lunatic licensed to practice medicine.

Normal, if brain damage is something parents should be expected to shrug off.

Normal, if destroying the life of a child, through officially sanctioned means, is simply written off as the cost of doing pharmaceutical business.

Japan Regulators Ignore 'Cascading Quake' Threat To Nuclear Reactors

The pair of killer quakes that pummeled the Kumamoto region in mid-April occurred along the Japan’s longest fault line, called the Main Tectonic Line (MTL, chuo kozo sen), a horizontal-moving “strike-slip” similar to California’s San Andreas Fault.

It, therefore, seems odd that one of Japan’s leading geophysicists would say to the news media: "I don't quite understand what is happening with the recent earthquakes, because it's an unfamiliar phenomenon."

Georgia busts 6 for illegally selling uranium-238

Georgia has arrested six people on charges of trying to sell $200 million worth of radioactive substance uranium-238, the country’s security service says.

“Officers of Georgia's State Security Service detained three citizens of Armenia and three citizens of Georgia… for planning to sell the nuclear material,” said security service investigator Savle Motiashvili in a news briefing on Monday.

The prefabricated transportation containers full of uranium were found in one of the detainee's apartment, he further said without disclosing the precise amount of the radioactive material.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Uranium 238 is the most common isotope of uranium, and not fissile, i.e. it is not the uranium used to make nuclear weapons. It can be used to make reactor fuel rods. Current spot price is $20 per pound, so they would need 10 million pounds of it to reach a value of $200 million ... which makes the entire story suspect.

It Might Not Be Dementia—How Pharma for Seniors Can Go Seriously Wrong

Forgetfulness. Falls. Adding a new prescription or over-the-counter drug to address problems that are side effects of a previous drug. These are increasingly common problems, says a new book from Hazelden, because people are taking more drugs than ever before and not always aware of their side effects and interactions. This "polypharmacy" can produce everything from falls and accidents to behavior that is quickly termed dementia in the elderly, even when it is clearly from drug effects.

The problem is compounded by doctors not always aware of what other doctors are prescribing a patient and the addictive nature of many popular drugs today.

Same national media that freaked out over lead poisoning in Flint, remains totally silent on nationwide mercury poisoning through vaccines

In 2014, a scientist working for the public interest tested mercury levels of a flu vaccine produced by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline. Using advanced mass spectrometry technology, Mike Adams the Health Ranger found that the Flulaval vaccines contained upwards of 51 parts per million of mercury, or 25,000 times the legal maximum for drinking water established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This is an unprecedented level of mercury being injected directly into people and developing children all over the planet. Has the mainstream media scrambled to cover the story of pervasive mercury poising, like they covered the story of lead poisoning in Flint, Michigan? The answer is a resounding NO, because the mainstream media is sponsored by the pharmaceutical giants who make multi-billions of dollars peddling toxic vaccines.

FLASHBACK - Clinton Involved In Arkansas 'Blood Scandal'According To New Documentary Released

The documentary called "Factor 8: The Arkansas Prison Blood Scandal," written and produced by Arkansas native Kelly Duda, made it's debut two weeks ago at the prestigious American Film Festival Institute.

Duda's documentary deals with fresh evidence about the Arkansas prison blood scandal where officials knowingly sold AIDS tainted blood for a huge profit, then deliberately shipped to thousands in Europe and Canada who unknowingly contracted AIDS and hepatitis.

Duda's documentary shows how senior officials in the Arkansas prison system paid inmates to donate AIDS tainted blood while at the same time altering prisoner medical records to make it look like they were not carrying the deadly virus.

Actor Aidan Quinn Says Vaccines Caused His Daughter's Autism

The house of cards may be falling around the “vaccines are totally safe and effective” lie that’s traditionally been propped up in part by the Hollywood establishment.

First Robert De Niro backpeddled on censoring a documentary on the CDC whistleblower from the Tribeca Film Festival, going public about changing his mind on the matter, and now actor Aidan Quinn has gone on the record in an interview to say he believes his daughter was a normal, healthy child until she got vaccines.

FEDERAL RESEARCHERS BUILD MASSIVE ONLINE DATABASE OF GENOMIC DATA

A new online portal would let scientists access vast amounts of genomic data from patients involved in heart, lung, blood and sleep research studies.

The hub, called GenPort, is supposed to help researchers look into the results of several studies at once, tracking individuals in different trials who might share the same characteristics, known as “synthetic cohorts.”

The Health and Human Services Department is currently looking for small businesses who can help build that hub, so even researchers without informatics or genomics training can make “practical use” of data from cohort studies other scientists have already conducted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Without the patients' consent, in writing?!?

This means that anytime you will have any kind of test done, no matter if you have no criminal record whatsoever, you will have that data shared with the Federal Government.

USS Destroyer Donald Cook Incident (Baltic Incident)

“(C)ommanders and their signals staff on board the Donald Cook” knew they weren’t threatened. They were being watched and warned.

Deploying an anti-ballistic missile (ABM) system aboard the Donald Cook violates the 2010 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, said Helmer.

The ship simulated an attack on Russian subsurface and shore-based systems, installed to defend against potential US Aegis missile attacks.

Russian aircraft were deployed as a self-defense measure - to monitor close up what the Donald Cook and other US warships are up to, along with vessels from other countries like Poland.

Watch “Positive Hell,” The Film Banned By The London Not So Independent Film Festival

“Imagine the sudden announcement of a plague and a death sentence with no real science to support it. It doesn’t seem possible, does it?”

The Truth Barrier presents here the short award winning documentary film by Andi Reiss and Joan Shenton pulled from the lineup by the London Independent Film Festival, after pharmaceutically supported “AIDS Charities” complained the film was “dangerous.” The details of this absurd protest, and how the film makers turned it around, are chronicled here.

Positive Hell is about people who live their lives, in a coastal town in Northern Spain. Doesn’t sound very “dangerous” does it?

I happen to love this film.

HPV vaccine makers to be sued in Japan for damage and deaths caused by toxic immunizations

In response to vaccine injuries linked to the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix, 12 plaintiffs in Japan plan to file a class action lawsuit against the Japanese government, Merck and GlaxoSmithKine after June 2016. The plaintiffs are seeking answers about why they were not told about the HPV vaccine risks before they received the vaccination.

As it currently stands, Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has advised local governments not to actively promote HPV vaccine use. In fact, the health ministry reversed their HPV vaccination recommendation in 2013 after HPV vaccine recipients began experiencing horrible side effects including everything from paralysis to short-term memory loss.

US Government Report Admits Poisoning Drinking Water Of Millions

The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) has issued a shocking report that says drinking water across the United States is being knowingly contaminated with dangerous poisons by the federal government.

According to the GAO, the Environmental Protection Agency has failed to protect underground drinking water supplies from oilfield contamination, and been grossly negligent in allowing companies to dump wastewater into aquifers – putting the health of millions of citizens at risk.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Look, if you can get cheap safe water out of your faucets, then you won;t buy the more expensive bottled water sold by our campaign donors! So, by letting your water become dangerous, we force you to spend MORE money for water, and that is good for the economy (and for those of us who own stock in those bottled water companies)! See how it works?" -- Official White Horse Souse

Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption

Recently Senator Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, has been looking into financial ties between the pharmaceutical industry and the academic physicians who largely determine the market value of prescription drugs. He hasn’t had to look very hard.

Take the case of Dr. Joseph L. Biederman, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and chief of pediatric psychopharmacology at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital. Thanks largely to him, children as young as two years old are now being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and treated with a cocktail of powerful drugs, many of which were not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for that purpose and none of which were approved for children below ten years of age.

Virus Fakery: My Conversation With a White House Insider; And Another Conversation With a Virologist

By Jon Rappoport

There are a number of cases in which a virus is said to be the cause of a disease—but the evidence doesn’t stand up.

I first realized this in 1987. I was writing my book, AIDS INC., Scandal of the Century.

Robert Gallo, who claimed he had found the cause of AIDS, hadn’t done proper work. From everything I read, he had discovered HIV in 35 to 60 percent of AIDS patients he had studied.

He should have been able to isolate HIV in virtually every patient.

Then there was the fact that the most popular tests for HIV, the Elisa and Western Blot, were fatally flawed. They could register positive for a whole host of reasons that had nothing to do with HIV.

And no one had found sufficient quantities of HIV in humans to justify claiming it caused any kind of illness...

THIS DESK-SIZE TURBINE PRODUCES ELECTRICITY FROM CARBON DIOXIDE AND CAN POWER 10,000 HOMES!

General Electric (GE) Global Research has just announced the development of a prototype turbine which converts carbon dioxide into electricity. While the size of the turbine does not exceed that of a desk, the inventors say it could actually power a town of 10,000 homes!

This sounds really promising, given that this innovation has the potential to help solve two critical issues of the modern world – CO2 pollution and energy crisis – at the same time.

As Doug Hofer, GE steam turbine specialist who is leading the development of the carbon dioxide turbine technology, said in a press release, “the world is seeking cleaner and more efficient ways to generate power. The concepts we are exploring with this machine are helping us address both.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this turbine is actually that good,this technology will most likely be privately purchased, and disappear completely from public view.

Before commenting on that study, let’s recall a devastating statement the NEJM’s former editor, Marcia Angell, issued in 2009, after she had headed up that non-science machine for 20 years:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

Pro-vaccine shill Dr. David Gorski, linked to cancer fraudster, in cahoots with pharma to develop lucrative autism drug

Dr. David Gorski is an established pro-vaccine internet troll with ties to the Barbara Anne Karmanos Cancer Institute, notorious for experimental cancer treatments and drugs that have been fast-tracked by the FDA.

Karmanos is also where cancer fraudster Dr. Farid Fata had his clinic. Fata used aggressive chemotherapy treatments on cancer-free individuals, over-administered chemotherapy on people with no chance of survival, undertreated cancer patients, overbilled insurance, and defrauded the government out of $17 million.

Gorski consistently trashes holistic medicine and vaccine skeptics under the pen name "Orac" on the website ScienceBlogs, heavily sponsored by the drug industry.

The CULT of 'Scientism' explained: How scientific claims behind cancer, vaccines, psychiatric drugs and GMOs are nothing more than corporate-funded science FRAUD

Sadly, what often passes for "science" today in the world of health is little more than "Scientism" -- a dangerous cult founded on irrational dogma and faith-based beliefs in faulty, fraudulent ideas being paraded as science.

A common trait that weaves its way through every topic of "Scientism" is corporate profits. Any time something is being pushed with aggressive demands of "SCIENCE!" that also happens to enrich wealthy corporations, it's probably based on fraud, not real science.

Perpetrators of fraudulent scientism include Paul Offit, Dr. David Gorski, Monsanto pal Bill Nye, discredited biotech shill and former Forbes.com writer Jon Entine and too many others to even name.

Mandatory euthanasia coming soon to California so that medical industry can harvest organs from everyone right before killing them

In medical systems around the world, the hunt for viable, transplantable organs is on. The knowledgeable Jan Bollen of the Maastricht University Medical Centre points this out in two separate papers published this year in the American Journal of Transplantation and in the Journal of Medical Ethics. He suggested that the more "normalized" euthanasia becomes, the more the boundaries will be pushed for expediting organ harvesting.

In Belgium, euthanasia rates have skyrocketed since it became legal in 2002. More and more people complying to be euthanized are opting to have their organs donated. Doctors are beginning to pressure patients into euthanasia, requesting that their viable organs be donated.

Caltech professor claims Israeli spy infiltrated JPL

A physics professor at the California Institute of Technology filed a lawsuit against the university Thursday, alleging it allowed a potential Israeli spy on campus for two years even after she reported that he violated federal laws and shared classified information with his home country and on the Internet.

Sandra Troian alleges Caltech administrators ignored the school’s whistleblower policy and retaliated against her for the past four years because if they had documented her concern, they could have put an $8 billion contract with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at risk and put the school in a bad light. Troian said she is frightened for her career.

Vaccine Damage, The Hidden Truth

The experts, like preening peacocks, assure us that the shots are amazingly safe. After all, they’ve done the studies. They’ve published the studies.

There is widespread fraud in those reports, because, for example, of the short follow-up period—as if adverse effects could only occur in a 72-hour window, or over the course of a few weeks. Who decided that? Who made that arbitrary rule?

And then, most importantly, studies are not real life. We have seen glowing assessments of medical drugs in print, but when they are (like Vioxx) released for public use, people start dropping like flies.

In the case of vaccines (in real life), the one system for reporting human damage is broken. Completely broken. It’s called VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. It’s run by the CDC and the FDA.

I was a New Hampshire girl who'd left a beautiful green land."

The second, she said, was how she was told by in-processing personnel not to get pregnant while stationed there.

"I was young, I didn't question it," she said. "I already had a daughter."

IF YOU THINK G M O’s ARE BAD …. LOOK AT THIS

The technology originated in research from over a decade ago at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev when an Israeli scientist sought ways to use oils to create organic preservative properties, Gal-Or explained to Tazpit Press Service (TPS)

“These oils have been known about for thousands of years, but they are very volatile and evaporate very rapidly so their effectiveness disappears very quickly. The researchers wanted to transform the preservative properties into a liquid or powder and then release it very slowly and therefore multiply its effectiveness,” he said.

Gal-Or and his team then set about combining past research to create a powder that does not need to be sprayed or applied to the produce to provide protection. Instead, the powder dissolves piecemeal and can preserve the produce for up to three times longer than usual. Using these powders for the household simply “made sense,” Gal-Or said.

New strain of super-gonorrhoea is spreading across UK and medics warn it may become untreatable

A highly drug-resistant type of 'super-gonorrhoea' is spreading across the country, with senior medics warning it may become untreatable.

A powerful strain of the sexually transmitted superbug first seen in the north of England has now been found in the West Midlands and the South East, Public Health England (PHE) said.

The strain is 'highly resistant' to the antibiotic azithromycin, meaning medics are relying on a second drug, ceftriaxone, to treat it.

But there are no other effective drugs to tackle it, raising the prospect of it becoming untreatable if it builds further resistance.

Disasters waiting to happen: 8 most dangerous nuclear plants near earthquake fault lines

The Japanese government says there won’t be any catastrophic damage, this time, at its nuclear facilities following Thursday night’s devastating earthquake and subsequent aftershocks.

Nine people are confirmed dead and more than 1,000 others injured after a 6.5-magnitude quake hit east of the city of Kumamoto.

The disaster revived terrifying memories of the Fukushima disaster, when a 15-meter post-quake tsunami caused a nuclear meltdown that polluted a sizeable portion of the country for decades.

Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga confirmed that there were no abnormalities at any nuclear facilities in the area, the Japan Times reported.

New Technology Promises to Decentralize The Biomedical Industry

By Brian Berletic

Taking care of human health is not like fixing a car or a computer. Not only is there a wide range of conditions that can afflict a human being, but each human being also has a unique personality and ability (or inability) to deal with that affliction. Navigating this complicated challenge are doctors and nurses all over the world who must confront and overcome these unique challenges on a daily basis.

Often these challenges require inventive solutions that are hacked together on the spot using material already on hand. For such solutions that deal with recurring problems, healthcare professionals might consult a biomedical design firm to produce a finalized and marketable solution. However, this takes time and money. What if there was a better way? A cheaper way? A faster way?...
