Borneo (Kalimantan) - A frontline for survival of our planet

A new documentary film about a big island, Borneo, which is shared by three Asian countries. It was a magic, gentle and pure world... Then, Western colonialism changed, basically ruined everything; as it had ruined everything almost everything, all over the world. Dutch and British invaders, showing no respect and no interest in local people and their habitat, began doing here what they have been doing everywhere for centuries: plundering, stealing, cutting down trees, extracting riches from under the earth, enslaving the locals. Later on, after semi-independence, the West corrupted local elites and introduced savage capitalism onto basically the entire island of Borneo. In Indonesia, the situation has been the most brutal, since 1965, when the pro-Western treasonous military overthrew the progressive anti-imperialist President Sukarno, putting on the throne a beast, a nitwit and a shameless collaborator, General Suharto.

4 Examples of Monumental Hypocrisy in Health and Healthcare

Op-Ed by Paul A. Philips

Hypocrisy in health and healthcare runs rife throughout the Big Pharma-owned and -controlled medical pharmaceutical establishment. This hypocrisy may be downright unethical. Hypocrites include those self-serving doctors who want the largest slice of the pie that they can get from a healthcare system that places profits over the genuine welfare concern of people. Like other healthcare hypocrites, these doctors will contradict themselves in a number of health-related scenarios...

The birth control pill is killing women, but no one’s warning them of the risk

The truth is, “(t)he relative risk for thrombosis in patients who take COCs [combined oral contraceptives] is three- to five-fold higher compared with that of nonusers.” Thrombosis means blood clots that can cause stroke, heart attack, blindness, brain damage, and death. Still, women are not warned about the risk of blood clots with their daily steroidal hormone pill. This is serious and senseless deception and negligence.

According to a Canadian Broadcasting Company report in June 2013, birth control pill manufacturer Bayer paid out in excess of $1 billion to settle thousands of birth control pill lawsuits in the United States. Those settlements were all related to two low-dose contraception pills, Yaz and Yasmin. At the same time, an investigation by the CBC revealed that pharmacists suspected the deaths of 23 Canadian women were attributable to those two same pills.

Another View: An Objective Account of the #UniteTheRight Event

Wow, the Unite The Right event in Charlottesville, Virginia today was a total shit show, thanks largely (in my opinion) to the decisions made by local and state political and law enforcement authorities.

Unfortunately – and unsurprisingly – the actual event was in fact shut down prior to it even getting started, as local and state officials declared a state of emergency and canceled the event. The organizers and participants of the Unite the Right rally were ordered to disperse, and the event was shut down. Of course, chaos erupted, fights broke out, and the radical, anti-White scum were emboldened.

FAKE RALLY & FAKE CAR ATTACK IN VIRGINIA

Something smells extremely Gefilte-fishy about the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia and the alleged bizarre car-killing which took place there. Not only do the video of the incident (here) and the images of the aftermath present all the usual earmarks of a crisis-actor stunt, but the prominent presence at the previous night's "torch rally" of one "Richard Spencer" of the "National Policy Institute" also gives us cause for great suspicion.

From the article:
Spencer, an effeminate-sounding atheist, does not tolerate "anti-gay" views at his events, and his pedigree seems more establishmentarian that rebel -- having graduated from St. Mark's elite prep school in Dallas, Texas before moving on to Duke University. His election night rallying cry of "Hail Trump" and occasional use of German terms stink of contrived imposterism. And a very strange unearthed old photo of him and his wife posing with Laura Bush really sets Sugar's animal instincts off!

Same science status quo that claims “women have more active brains than men” simultaneously insists men and women have no differences at all

According to the political correctness police, there’s absolutely no difference whatsoever between men and women, and gender is just a social construct. But a new paper published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease begs to differ, making the everyone-would-be-crying-sexist-if-it-favored-men claim that women have “more active brains” than men, at least when it comes to areas of the brain associated with emotion (take that, you evil patriarchy!).

Researchers from the Amen Clinics in Newport Beach, California, say they compared tens of thousands of brain scans from nine different clinics to make this determination. And while news blips citing the study seem to be emphasizing the “more active brains” part about women, what the study actually found – and this is very pertinent with regards to all of the gender madness currently sweeping the Western world – is that the brains of women tend to function much differently than the brains of men.

Trapped under ice with no oxygen for months, goldfish turn to booze. And can you blame 'em?

Scientists have discovered how goldfish and their wild ilk survive months of winter in frozen-over lakes of oxygen-free water. The answer is alcohol – the cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems.

There aren't many vertebrates that can survive without oxygen. However, goldfish, and their wild relatives, the crucian carp, share a genetic mutation that allows them to anaerobically convert excess lactic acid into ethanol and flush it out of their gills. The fish are thought to be the only known vertebrates with this talent – the more's the pity.

First data transmission through terahertz multiplexer reported

Multiplexing, the ability to send multiple signals through a single channel, is a fundamental feature of any voice or data communication system. An international research team has demonstrated for the first time a method for multiplexing data carried on terahertz waves, high-frequency radiation that may enable the next generation of ultra-high bandwidth wireless networks.

Similar To Morphine: The Weed Every Prepper Should Know About

During a SHTF situation, pain could become an annoyance for some, but unbearable for others. If doctors are scarce and medicine becomes even scarcer, this one little weed, found all over North America and similar to morphine, could be a saving grace.

Lactuca Virosa is the scientific term for the morphine-like plant, and many people have used it in place of addictive prescription pain medication, like opioids. The plant is called “wild lettuce,” and it’s fairly abundant. Known as a weed to most, it gets plucked from lawns and tossed in compost piles, but it’s important to know what it can do, and how safe it actually is.

Cell Towers On EVERY CITY Block

By Catherine J. Frompovich

California is going off the deep end, in my candid opinion.

Some members of that state’s legislature think cell towers on every block or in front of individuals’ homes are the way to go in order to have faster Wi-Fi or what I think may be an undercover strategy, comprehensive surveillance!

Those of us, who are researching electromagnetic frequencies including radiofrequencies and the newer terahertz frequencies, are wondering if science has lost its marbles and is acting as if it were the ‘supreme, ultimate, consummate’ deciding factor in how humans live our lives...

Warning to pregnant women, don't use antibacterial soap! Chemicals in the products can make children fat and disrupt their development

Children could become fat if their mother used antibacterial soap during pregnancy, a new study warns.

Full of one toxic chemical, scientists found exposure to the contaminant in the womb can make youngsters obese.

In studies on mice, they showed female offspring to weigh 11 per cent more. Males were 8 per cent heavier on average.

The chemical, called triclocarban (TCC), is passed through both the placenta and through breastfeeding, trials suggest.

Free Market Alternatives to Obamacare

By Jeff Paul

Why do car insurance companies charge more for teenage boy drivers? Because they pose a higher risk of filing an insurance claim from accidents, mud bogging, speeding tickets, etc. Insurance companies must manage a pool of risk against potential expenses. Riskier participants pay a higher premium. This is not rocket science.

Yet health insurance companies are now prevented by the Obamacare law from charging a higher premium to “riskier” clients. Thus the cost of insurance premiums and copays had to be raised on healthy people to absorb this perversion...

WENDELL — The president of the Magic Valley Portuguese Hall shot and killed one of the men working on the hall’s renovation and then killed himself, a police report says.

Several of Sousa’s friends and family told deputies he was stressed over the progress of the hall’s construction, had been having trouble sleeping and worried it would not be finished in time, with one friend saying he had mentioned suicide.

Sousa had sought help from a doctor and was prescribed medication the day before the shooting.

Mark Cuban Slams U.S. Plan To Give Chinese Billionaire Monopoly On Cancer Drug

Mark Cuban on Wednesday condemned a federal agency’s plan to give a pharmaceutical company controlled by a Chinese billionaire exclusive rights to a new liver cancer treatment developed with U.S. government researchers.

The Dallas Mavericks owner, himself a billionaire, told HuffPost the decision “ignored” the need to use taxpayer-funded research in a way that advantages Americans.

“USA inc has got to start operating in the best interests of all of us shareholders,” the “Shark Tank” host wrote in an email, after retweeting a link to a HuffPost report on the licensing plans. “Our taxes should be an investment that expects a financial and social return.”

The National Institutes of Health proposed awarding Salubris Biotherapeutics Inc. exclusive worldwide rights to a portfolio of patents on an antibody drug used to treat liver cancer, according to a notice published Monday in the Federal Register, first reported by HuffPost.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, why would the NIH give the rights to this drug to this particular company, when it was developed by U.S. government researchers?!?

This status of the award needs to be halted, and a complete investigation of how it is that a Chinese owned company was awarded the rights to this drug, needs a full and complete investigation.

The Netherlands have been testing the controversial new technique, which is banned by the European Union but can be used on an experimental basis.

Environmentalists have branded the new technique as cruel as some larger fish, such as cod, have broken their backs following the shock of the current.

Fishermen using the new technique insist that the new techniques are less damaging to the environment than traditional beam trawling.

Speaking to BBC’s Newsnight, George Monbiot took a swipe at the Dutch Government and EU for allowing the experimental tests.

China will prevent US first strike against North Korean regime – govt daily

China just said NO!

China will prevent the US and South Korea from carrying out strikes on North Korea and trying to overthrow the leadership there, but will remain neutral if Pyongyang launches missiles at American targets first, the state-run Global Times said.

Beijing should make it clear that “if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US soil first and the US retaliates, China will stay neutral,” the Global Times wrote.

But if the US and its ally South Korea take on Pyongyang and try to “overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so,” the paper stressed.

Skyrocketing Male Infertility

Human fertility is in a downward spiral, scientists warn and modern life — with its technological and chemical “progress” — is likely to blame. Female infertility tends to get the most attention, but in this case, it’s male infertility that has made headlines, as recent research shows sperm concentration and quality has dramatically declined in recent decades.

The Real McCoy: AKA D.B.Cooper

Certain names in the following description are fictitious names to protect people's identities.

Fourteen year-old Peter Fanning (fictitious name) of Provo, Utah, made a surprising discovery. Lying in front of him, beside a steel culvert, was what he thought might be a parachute pack. He brought the strange object to his father who was replacing a flat tire on the family car a short distance away. The father notified the local sheriff of their find after returning home that afternoon.

It was soon learned that the Fannings had stumbled upon one of the four parachutes furnished to a lone gunman who had commandeered a passenger plane on April 7, 1972, in the Colorado skies.

Waitrose, Asda, Sainsbury's and Morrisons forced to withdraw thousands of products as it's revealed 700,000 contaminated Dutch eggs are now in the UK

Four of Britain's biggest supermarkets have been forced to withdraw thousands of products after it emerged 700,000 eggs from farms implicated in a contamination scare have been distributed to the UK.

Waitrose, Asda, Sainsbury's and Morrisons are all being forced to withdraw sandwich fillings and other chilled foods after the Food Standards Agency made the announcement today - and revealed a far higher number of contaminated eggs than the previously estimated 21,000.

Today Dutch authorities arrested two men in an investigation into the use of pesticide in poultry farms.

While in some European countries eggs containing Fipronil residues have been sold as fresh eggs, in the UK this is not the case.

Scientists hack a computer using DNA: Malware encoded in strands of genetic code takes 'full control' of a machine in a world first

Scientists have synthesised a strand of DNA that can be used to hack computers in a world first.

Scientists warn that cyber criminals could one day use faked spit or blood samples to steal information from police forensics labs, hack into university computers, or infect genome files shared by researchers.

GMO scientists just created “doomsday crops” containing RNA fragments that intentionally cause mass infertility

The purpose of the fragmented RNA in these newly modified crops is to disable insects, by either inducing death or infertility. When pests consume crops engineered with RNA fragments, the RNA interference literally causes the insects’ essential genes to shut down.

Supposedly, this somehow makes them “safer” for the environment and less harmful to humans. However, the idea of “shutting down essential genes” is really quite alarming, leading many people to question if these RNA-engineered crops will cause infertility in humans.

When one considers the globalist depopulation agenda, the RNA interference scheme grows even darker.

Pennsylvanians Are Taking On AMI Smart Meters Big Time

The horrific harassment and health issues utility customers across the USA and elsewhere have to deal with can be exemplified in what the good folks of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have been dealing with regard to what seems to be skullduggery at state capital administrative agency, and possibly at one legislator’s level, who just happens to be Chairman of the PA House Consumer Affairs Committee.

Several groups are becoming extremely proactive and vocal now that a set of three AMI Smart Meter Opt-out bills have been introduced into the 2017-18 legislative session and don’t want those bills to be subjected to the same treatment and routes previous opt-out bills have taken over the course of the last six years...

Cleveland Clinic drug pusher Steven Nissen claims statin drug side effects are all “imagined” by patients, blames Natural News for covering side effects

Angry about the fact that sales of statin drugs have reached record lows, a cardiologist from the Cleveland Clinic is blaming both science and online media websites like Natural News for the drop, claiming that this “internet-driven cult” is needlessly scaring people away from taking the cholesterol-lowering medications.

Denying the reported side effects of statins as being “imagined” by patients, Steven Nissen claims that statins are 100 percent safe and effective, and that anyone who says otherwise is a charlatan. He wrote in a recent editorial that anyone who claims to be suffering side effects of statins is experiencing the “nocebo effect,” meaning they’re just making it up “in their heads.”

Space drugs: how to cure people in zero gravity?

The effects of space flights on humans are unpredictable. Radiation is the greatest danger: out of the 22 Soviet cosmonauts that have passed away to date, over 40 percent died of cancer. Orbital flights cause other illnesses as well, from partial deafness to osteoporosis. Some probiotics were developed to restore astronauts’ digestion, and space foods have probiotic supplements. In microgravity, the calcium in our bones is lost by excretion into blood and urine, which may exacerbate kidney stone disease. In 1982, cosmonaut Anatoly Berezovsky experienced an acute colic during a space flight. “It hurt so much I wanted to jump out into open space,” he recalls. Berezovsky decided not to report the incident to the control center in order to avoid aborting the mission, and he even agreed to stay in orbit to set a new record: 211 days. Treating diseases in space is not an easy task. The human body behaves differently in microgravity, even on the cellular level.

Devastating Toll of Hunger on US School Children

Hunger is a growing problem for US children and increasingly affects their performance in school, making it more difficult for them to focus on their classes or do homework. It also contributes to behavior and discipline problems.

This was the finding of a report issued last week by the anti-hunger charity Share Our Strength, based on a survey of 500 low-income parents and their teenage children in public schools. Some 325 teachers were also interviewed. “Low-income” was defined as at or below 185 percent of the official poverty line, or $45,417 a year for a family of four.

Among children in low-income families, 59 percent said they had gone to school hungry. In the richest country in the world, with the largest concentration of billionaires, one in six children faces hunger, some 13 million in all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is so horrifically, morally wrong on so many levels, I hardly know where to speak. And yet, local and national politicians seem pathologically impotent to fix the problem.

Editor of science journal that forced retraction of Seralini GMO study entered a promotional contract with Monsanto right before smearing the research

On March 20, 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) unleashed a firestorm with its analysis of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides, including glyphosate. Their finding that “the herbicide glyphosate and the insecticides malathion and diazinon were classified as probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A)” has resulted in at least 100 lawsuits against agri-giant Monsanto, whose Roundup herbicide contains more than 50 percent glyphosate. The lawsuits, which are being handled in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, allege that exposure to this dangerous chemical has resulted in the plaintiffs or their loved ones developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In the course of these lawsuits, some very damaging documents have come to light, including evidence that the editor-in-chief of the journal that retracted a damaging glyphosate study had a contractual relationship with Monsanto.

A danger to public health? Uproar as scientist urges us to eat more salt

Public health experts in the UK have spoken out against a new book that claims many of us should be eating more salt, not less – claiming the advice could endanger people’s health.

New York scientist James DiNicolantonio says in his book The Salt Fix that the World Health Organisation and the US and UK advisory bodies on diet have got it wrong with their advice to cut down on salt.

Salt is necessary and good for us, he says. Eating more salt will reduce the amount of sugar in our diet and help us lose weight, he says. Indeed low-salt diets may be causing brittle bones and memory loss and more salt could fix diabetes, he claims.

US expert links North Korea's nuclear stockpile with light water reactors

North Korea can significantly increase its nuclear stockpile if a light water reactor under construction at its Yongbyon nuclear complex goes into operation, a U.S. nuclear scientist warned, urging Washington to restart negotiations with Pyongyang.

North Korea has so far used a 5-megawatt reactor at Yongbyon to make plutonium for nuclear weapons, roughly at a speed of one bomb worth of plutonium a year. But since a few years ago, the North has been building a larger-scale light water nuclear reactor that experts say could give Pyongyang enough plutonium to make about five or six weapons a year.

The two faces of Rumsfeld

LINK FIXED

Randeep Ramesh

Friday 9 May 2003 03.48 EDT
First published on Friday 9 May 2003 03.48 EDT
Donald Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, sat on the board of a company which three years ago sold two light water nuclear reactors to North Korea - a country he now regards as part of the "axis of evil" and which has been targeted for regime change by Washington because of its efforts to build nuclear weapons.

Mr Rumsfeld was a non-executive director of ABB, a European engineering giant based in Zurich, when it won a $200m (£125m) contract to provide the design and key components for the reactors. The current defence secretary sat on the board from 1990 to 2001, earning $190,000 a year. He left to join the Bush administration.

The reactor deal was part of President Bill Clinton's policy of persuading the North Korean regime to positively engage with the west.

FLASHBACK:Clinton, in Letter, Assures North Koreans on Nuclear Reactors

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26— President Clinton promised North Korea's leader in a letter released today that if the planned international financing for new nuclear reactors fell through, he would do his utmost to have the United States provide them.

Last week the United States and North Korea reached an agreement in which the North pledged to freeze its nuclear program in return for having the United States and other members of an international consortium build two light-water reactors and provide oil until the reactors are built.

Never Forget: The Nukes N. Korea is Threatening to Use on America CAME FROM AMERICA

In fact, the only thing that makes North Korea a threat is their nuclear capability — made possible by the Clinton and Bush administrations.

These two administrations played key roles in helping the late Kim Jong-Il develop North Korea’s nuclear prowess from the mid 1990’s onwards.
Former US Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld was on the board of technology giant ABB when it won a deal to supply North Korea with two nuclear power plants.

According to the 2003 report from SWI, the Swiss-based ABB told swissinfo that Rumsfeld was involved with the company in early 2000, when it netted a $200 million (SFr270million) contract with Pyongyang.

The ABB contract was to deliver equipment and services for two nuclear power stations at Kumho, on North Korea’s east coast.

However, Rumsfeld was simply taking the baton from the Clinton administration, who, in 1994, agreed to begin replacing North Korea’s domestically built nuclear reactors with light water reactors.

Police Are Killing Citizens at Highest Rate Ever While Govt and Media Ignore It

Police have killed an average of over 3 people per day in 2017, and the numbers will only increase under the rhetoric used by the Trump Administration

Police in the United States are breaking records in 2017 by killing a record number of the same people they claim to serve and protect, and there is no change in sight under the current administration.

In 2017 alone, police have killed 746 people in the U.S., according to the Killed By Police database, which puts this year on pace to become the deadliest year on record. In contrast, in the first seven months of 2016, police killed 714 people; the number was slightly higher in 2015 with 725 killed; and it was noticeably lower in 2014 with 663 killed and in 2013 with 353 killed.

Farmer Heartbroken After Cop ‘Feared for His Life’ and Killed His Prize Goat

Portland, OR — Matt Minnick is a small farmer in Portland who is now very upset after a Washington County Sheriff’s Office Deputy shot and killed his top breeding goat Sunday morning.

Because of the new construction by Minnick’s property, some damage was caused to a portion of his fence that his $1,200 prized New Zealand goat named Volt managed to escape through.

Volt was not some pit bull or rabid German Shepard — he was a goat.

As a friendly reminder, when children go to petting zoos, they are surrounded by these animals. There are thousands of petting zoos throughout the country at which children interact with goats on a daily basis. Amazingly enough, none of these children ‘fear for their lives’ and kill any of these goats

White House petition demands moratorium on childhood vaccines… sign it here

The official petition on WhiteHouse.gov, which currently has over 6,600 signatures, asks the White House to do four things: Enact a five year moratorium on vaccines for children below the age of eighteen, repeal the 1986 National Childhood vaccine injury Act, perform large scale studies on both vaccinated and unvaccinated children in order to learn more about the effects of vaccines, and ban direct pharmaceutical advertising to consumers and only permit advertising that is directed towards medical professionals.

While there is still an ongoing and rigorous debate in this country over the potentially harmful effects of vaccinations, what we know to be true is that there are countless stories out there of young people who have experienced tremendous amounts of suffering after receiving vaccines. Below are three of those stories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The petition has now been closed, having failed (so we are told) to garner the required number of signatures.

FBI agents conducted a predawn raid of Paul Manafort’s home

In other words,this raid was done to bully the target and his family. Appointing Jeff Sessions was Trump's biggest mistake and probably a fatal one!

The significance of the records seized from the home isn’t clear, according to the Post. But most of the documents were already in the hands of Congress, which means the raid may have been to send a message to Manafort that he should not expect any courtesies from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team. “If the FBI wanted the documents, they could just ask [Manafort] and he would have turned them over,” an adviser close to the White House told the Post.

Put down the Red Bull! Young people who consume energy drinks are significantly more likely to use cocaine in later life

Young people who regularly consume energy drinks are significantly more likely to use cocaine in later life, new research reveals.

They are also more at risk of taking prescription drugs for non-medical reasons and having alcohol problems at 25, a study found.

Study author Dr Amelia Arria from the University of Maryland, said: 'The results suggest that energy drink users might be at heightened risk for other substance use, particularly stimulants.'

Although it is unclear why energy drink consumption is linked to illegal drug use, the researchers argue their findings warrant further investigation.

“Where is Trump?” Sheriff Arpaio Asks

Trump could have ended this as well as the Bundy case. He is extremely weak.

Sheriff Arpaio points finger at Obama holdovers in DOJ.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – After being convicted of criminal misdemeanor contempt, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has come out swinging, arguing the judge was biased and asking why President Trump is abandoning him, considering Arpaio was an early campaign supporter whose conviction reflects the determination to enforce immigration laws the Trump Justice Department is now exhibiting.

“Where is President Trump on this case?” Arpaio asked Infowars.com in an exclusive interview. “This is a witch hunt against me that is being carried forward by Obama holdovers in Attorney General Sessions’ Department of Justice.”

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

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

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

...

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

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

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

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

What the Act says

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Catherine J. Frompovich

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

However, many people are chomping at the bit about what’s going on in Pennsylvania and there’s been a new set of bills affecting AMI Smart Meters introduced in to the House Consumer Affairs Committee.

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

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

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

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

Federal Court Dismisses US Veterans’ Lawsuit Over Burn Pits

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Long before the internet, and even before television, science demons (evil humans in white lab coats) were hard at work inventing ways to slowly poison Americans with chemical-based food and chemical-laced medicine, and they needed marketing experts to fool the public with catchy tag lines and slogans that could be plastered all over print media.

Court deals major blow to veterans suing military contractor KBR

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

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

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

Natural Antioxidant Prevents Severe Flu

By Mae Chan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The government fought cannabis — and cannabis won.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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