Could A Democratic President End Fracking?

Love it or hate it, hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has become central to the United States’ energy portfolio. Fracking has unlocked vast domestic fossil fuel reserves over the past decade, and plenty of oil and gas still remains in the ground. Whether it stays there or not is the question now facing the politicians scrambling to curb climate disruption, and the debate over fracking has driven a wedge down the middle of the Democratic Party.

Saturn's moon has grown a TENTACLE! Nasa image shows Enceladus has huge groove in its ice caused by tectonic activity

The latest image from Nasa's Cassini spacecraft shows a sinuous feature that snakes northward from Enceladus' south pole like a giant tentacle.

The dramatic feature is created by tectonic stresses in the icy shell of Enceladus.

How brushing your teeth can ward off CANCER: Bacteria found in the mouth 'linked to deadly strains of the disease'

Since childhood we are told to brush our teeth twice a day, or risk painful cavities and rotting teeth.

But new research suggests that properly cleaning our teeth may also help ward off a particularly vicious form of cancer.

Scientists have discovered that pancreatic cancer - one of the most deadly - is linked to two types of bacteria that also cause gum disease.

A team in the US found that people who had these two bugs in their mouths were up to twice as likely to develop pancreatic cancer over the next decade.

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.

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?

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.

Remember what happened to cold fusion?!?

Zika fake science back in the news; con artists at work - Their media androids dutifully record a “breakthrough”

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?...

Flashback April 2015: Top medical journal, The Lancet, warns much published science is bogus, can't be trusted

A lot of what is published is incorrect. I am not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides. Those who worked for government agencies pleaded that their comments especially remain unquoted, since the forthcoming UK election meant they were living in purdah — a chilling state where severe restrictions on freedom of speech are placed on anyone on the government's payroll. Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium — on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week — touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations.

The case against science is straightforward:much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes,tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.

Yet other In-Q-Tel-backed companies are now openly embracing the practice.

Police departments in Oakland, Chicago, Detroit, and other major municipalities have contracted with Geofeedia, as well as private firms such as the Mall of America and McDonald’s. Lee Guthman, an executive at Geofeedia, told reporter John Knefel that his company could predict the potential for violence at Black Lives Matter protests just by using the location and sentiment of tweets. Guthman said the technology could gauge sentiment by attaching “positive and negative points” to certain phrases, while measuring “proximity of words to certain words.” Privacy advocates, however, have expressed concern about these sorts of automated judgments.

Deliberate fraud uncovered in antidepressant studies: Falsified data led to millions of children being poisoned by psychiatric drugs

Paroxetine, which was marketed under the names Paxil and Seroxat, was introduced in 2001, following the publication of a trial carried out by the company itself that claimed the drug was "generally well tolerated" by children and adolescents suffering from depression.

The drug was prescribed to more than 2 million American children the following year.

An independent re-analysis of the trial was recently conducted by The BMJ (formerly the British Medical Journal). Their research concluded that paroxetine was no more effective than a placebo and caused suicidal thoughts in 12 of 93 children who took the drug.

CDC likely fabricating link between Zika virus and microcephaly cases; admits people self-immunize against Zika and that 'no single piece of evidence provides conclusive proof'

"People usually don't get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika," says the CDC's Zika information page. "For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected. Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections."

In other words, a Zika virus infection usually produces no symptoms, requires no hospitalization and builds self-immunity against future Zika exposure. The CDC refuses to describe it this way, of course, because there's a fortune to be made spreading Zika scare stories and selling Zika vaccines to people who largely don't need them. The visual shock factor of babies with shrunken heads makes the media frenzy an automatic success, even if those shrunken heads were caused by something else entirely.

Many doctors in South America believe that microcephaly is caused by a larvicide chemical linked to Monsanto, and that the Zika virus scare is just a cover story.

Consensus Science: The Rise of a Scientific Elite

The full speech provides evidence that Mr. Obama's words were carefully selected to exploit the accelerating drift of the scientific community's upper echelons from determining "scientific validity" based on rigorous observation and experiment, to basing it on consensus authority. Thus, preserving "scientific integrity" would not mean keeping the scientific process from going awry, but keeping scientific outcomes in line with policy.

Scientists have published the first images of what the human brain looks like under the influence of LSD, one of the most powerful drugs ever created.

What’s more, the new study by Imperial College London explores what researchers say are potential medical uses for the illegal psychedelic known as acid, including treating mental health disorders.

“For brain researchers, studying how psychedelic drugs such as LSD alter the ‘normal’ brain state is a way to study the biological phenomenon that is consciousness,” David Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and senior researcher on the study, told the science journal Nature.

“We ultimately would also like to see LSD deployed as a therapeutic tool.”

Study: Junk Food Kills Bacteria that Protects Against Obesity, Heart Disease and Cancer

A study by a Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College, London has revealed that eating junk food kills stomach bacteria, which protect the human body against obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, inflammatory bowel conditions and autism. Professor Tim Spector specifically used McDonalds’ food for his study, arriving at this disturbing finding. Telegraph reports that Professor Spector enlisted the help of his son Tom, a 23-year old genetics student, who agreed to spend 10 days on a fast-food-only diet of McDonald’s hamburgers, chips, chicken nuggets and Coca Cola.

Superbugs on Track to Kill More People Than Cancer

Antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” are on track to kill more people than cancer, the UK’s chief financial minister will warn Thursday. By 2050, Chancellor George Osborne will say, antimicrobial resistance could claim the lives of as many as 10 million people a year globally unless global action is taken. By comparison, the World Heath Organization (WHO) estimates that 8.2 million people die each year from cancer. The message that Osborne is set to deliver in Washington, D.C. to delegates at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) meeting will focus on the economic costs of the problem as well.

I’ve gotten some emails from folks asking my opinion on “How’s it all going to end?” As in, what major crisis is going to finally cause the American Giant to fall down and go boom? Guess what? There won’t be a major crisis that does it. It’s going to be a slow cascade reaction of crisis and disasters. What’s more, it has already begun. We’ve already seen several of these disasters. More are on the way. The end has begun and is upon us.

Kerry: Shooting down Russia jets 'would have been justified'

HMMM! The USS Donald Cook. This USS Donald Cook?

www.voltairenet.org/article185860.html

Two Russian jets flew within metres of the ship on Monday, US officials said.
Russia's defence ministry said the Su-24 fighter jets "turned away in observance of all safety measures" after observing the USS Donald Cook.
Mr Kerry criticised the gesture and said contact had been made with Moscow.
"We condemn this kind of behaviour," he told the Miami Herald and CNN Espanol in a joint interview.
"It is reckless. It is provocative. It is dangerous. And under the rules of engagement, that could have been a shoot-down."

Let Me Ask America a Question

By DONALD J. TRUMP

On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an “election” without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred.

A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined.

Let me ask America a question: How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?

I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.

World's tiniest engine is the size of an ATOM: Breakthrough paves the way for powerful quantum machines

Scientists have created the smallest engine ever, in which the piston and connecting rod are replaced by a single atom of calcium.

By alternately heating and cooling the electrically-charged atom, an ion of calcium-40, they were able to turn heat energy into useful work.

In principle, this is exactly the same process as occurs in the petrol-powered internal combustion engine in a car, but this unimaginably small motor could prove to be many times more efficient.

“We Are Being Silently Poisoned By Thousands Of Untested And Unmonitored Chemicals” The Case Against Glyphosate

EU parliament votes to re-approve glyphosate despite ‘concerns about carcinogenicity’

The European Parliament has backed a re-authorization of a pesticide believed to be carcinogenic for another 7 years, despite a widespread protest campaign calling for a full ban instead of a downsized “compromise” deal.
The weedkiller glyphosate is to be given market approval for another seven years, instead of 15 as originally requested, while its use should be limited to professionals only, the European Parliament said in a non-binding resolution approved on Wednesday. The body also advised the chemical shouldn’t be used in public locations, such as parks and playgrounds.

Despite coming up with the approval, the resolution, passed by 374 votes to 225, with 102 abstentions, still noted “concerns about the carcinogenicity and endocrine disruptive properties of the herbicide glyphosate, used in many farm and garden applications.”

The Green Party rioting for a ban said European governments and the European Commission are obliged to take into account the concerns raised by MEPs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, EU Parliament, for the record number of cancer cases we will see in Europe from this approval going forward.

Monsanto must have met their price; knowing that this product has been incontrovertably proven to be carcinogenic, yet allowing its use for another 7 years?!?

This is pure madness, driven by occult money, or blackmail.

Glyphosate’s carcinogenic potential has been known to Monsanto and the US EPA from long term animal experiments since the early 1980s but repeatedly dismissed. This has resulted in two decades of people and planet being poisoned by glyphosate herbicides on a misclassification of ‘noncarcinogenic’ that has allowed the manufacturer to claim it is ‘safe’ and perpetrating many other falsehoods to promote its ubiquitous and liberal use Dr Mae-Wan Ho and Prof Peter T. Saunders A fully referenced version will be available in an updated version of Banishing Glyphosate Sign the Independent Scientists Manifesto on Glyphosate here: http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Independent_Scientists_Manifesto_on_Glyphosate.php Introduction The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is part of the World Health Organization (WHO), has released the results of its year-long assessment of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides. In this, the 112th study into potentially carcinogenic agents, it has reclassified glyphosate in Group 2A ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’ [1, 2]. This category is used [1] “when there is limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans and sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals.” Previously, the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA), which last reviewed glyphosate in 1993, classified glyphosate in Group E ‘noncarcinogenic’ [3]. Similarly, a 2013 review by the German Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) conducted on behalf of the European Union did not recommend a carcinogen classification of either 2A or 2B (‘possibly carcinogenic’); though that review is mired in controversy, having been largely conducted by a consortium of chemical companies including Monsanto [4] (Scandal of Glyphosate Re-assessment in Europe, SiS 63). Monsanto has called on IARC to retract its assessment [5]. But Aaron Blair, scientist emeritus at the National Cancer Institute who chaired the 17 member Working Group of the IARC that carried out the assessment, robustly defended the decision, saying it is “appropriately based on current science” [6]. The IARC experts in the Working Group were selected for their expertise and most importantly, the absence of real or apparent conflicts of interest. Following the protocol required by the IARC, the Working Group considered only “reports that have been published or accepted for publication in the openly available scientific literature” as well as “data from governmental reports that are publicly available”. Notably, Blair told a journalist there were good grounds to declare that glyphosate definitely causes cancer [7]. But “the epidemiologic data was a little noisy.” While several studies suggested a link, another study in the US of farmers in Iowa and North Carolina did not. There had been a similar inconsistency in epidemiological studies of benzene now universally acknowledged as a carcinogen, Blair added. What Blair did not mention, for example, was that crucial evidence of carcinogenicity in animal experiments had existed at least since 1981 but successively dismissed as documented in EPA’s own archives (see below). In the meantime, US government data show steep rise in dozens of chronic diseases including cancers closely tracking the rapid increase in glyphosate use and the adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops, of which USA is the top producer by far [8]. In Argentina, the third producer of GM crops, where the use of pesticides including glyphosate has increased more than 8.5-fold since the introduction of GM crops 20 years ago, non-government organizations and doctors have been documenting rising incidences of cancers and birth defects among farmers and their families and others exposed to glyphosate spraying (see Chapter 3 of [9] Banishing Glyphosate, ISIS special report). Taking these and other additional findings into proper account would surely have been sufficient to classify glyphosate as a carcinogen. Asked to comment on the IARC’s reclassification, Fernando Manas, a member of the Genetics and Environmental Mutagenesis (GEMA) Group at the National University of Río Cuarto in Cordoba, Argentina, who has investigated the effect of agrochemicals for the past 9 years, confirmed the link between glyphosate and genetic damage, which leads to cancer and a higher risk of spontaneous abortions and birth defects in the new born, and said that the classification by IARC-WHO is a consequence of the growing scientific evidence generated by independent investigators. Furthermore, he pointed out that [10] this evidence, which has been deliberately ignored until now, means that “millions of gallons of herbicide with carcinogenic potential have been used according to regulations designed for a virtually harmless substance.” For two decades, entire populations were “subjected” to chronic pesticide exposures “based on criteria developed by the same companies that produce and market” agrochemicals.

NAVY VET MAKES THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE — SETS HIMSELF ON FIRE TO PROTEST THE VA’S LACK OF HEALTHCARE

Doused in gasoline, a former chief petty officer stood outside a Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient clinic when he lit himself on fire and eventually died nine hours later. His wife recently confirmed that her husband was upset with the inadequate care that he had been receiving at the VA facility shortly before his suicide. A seven-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, Charles Ingram III walked nine miles from his home, past an American Legion park and a military veteran memorial, before arriving at the parking lot of the VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic around 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 19. While standing on a grass lawn near the clinic, the 51-year-old poured several gallons of gasoline on himself before committing self-immolation.

Quantum Extremeophiles Discovered Thriving on Radiation

"Life finds a way." Thanks to a research time involving Princeton, Indiana University, and others, that isn't just a sappy Disney quote - it's an incredible fact. They found extremophile bacteria buried over two miles into solid rock, where the life-giving energy of the sun never reaches - the energy every other species on Earth depends on. Instead they found their own power source - radiation!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the search for extraterrestrial life, scientists are often blinded by a certain species chauvinism. They assume (probably because of science fiction movies and TV shows) that life means life as we know it, water and carbon based. But as the extremophiles on our own world prove, life evolves to fit the environment.

I keep hearing and reading about how "lucky" we are that Earth is in the perfect place for life to evolve, but they have it backwards. We are comfortable on Earth because we evolved here. Searching for Earth-like planets on which to search for life is limiting. Life will be found in conditions we would consider lethal, based on chemistry we would consider toxic. We may not even recognize it as life at first glance. See VIKING, LIFE ON MARS, AND DR. GILBERT LEVIN

Fluoride Officially Classified as a Neurotoxin in World’s Most Prestigious Medical Journal

The movement to remove industrial sodium fluoride from the world’s water supply has been growing in recent years, with evidence coming out against the additive from several sources.

Now, a report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin — in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember when the fluoride issue first came up, and the government propagandists handled it the way they always handle public opposition to policy, by trying to make anyone who was concerned look like a kook, as seen in films of the day such as "In like Flint", and "Doctor Strangelove."

And here we are, years later, finding out that the people concerned about what was coming out of their faucets, the people the establishment media made such fun of, were right all along.

Just keep that in mind when you see people being ridiculed for doubting human-caused global warming, or the official story about .... anything.

Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House is getting threats from Donald Trump supporters

This was predictable.

Emails obtained by ABC News sent to Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House tell him to “quit whining” about all the threatening calls and emails he’s receiving. Another email tells him to “pray” he makes it to Cleveland, and instructs him to support Trump or “you are done.” One email provided to ABC News tells House to hide his family members.

“This does not have to do with Trump. This has everything to do with “the people” having a chance to vote,” one email sent today read. “Stop being a j-----f and admit that the residents of Colorado SHOUT [to] have the chance to vote rather than a slim minority telling the residents of CO who they have to vote for. That is the real story here. Quit whining about all the calls and email you’re getting. It’s your job. If you don’t want it – RESIGN.”

The Incredibly Sexist Ads Big Pharma Has Used Peddle Pills to Women

Ads hawking hormone replacement therapy to spare women the living decay of old age and failed ovaries did not end until fairly recently. Wyeth (who made the most popular hormone drugs) ran high-budget TV ads in the early 2000s, with model Lauren Hutton telling the viewer that aging and loss of hormones was terrible—and voluntary. Menopause, said the Hutton ads, “contributes” to heart disease and other “age-related diseases,” but hormone replacement therapy would prevent diminished memory, loss of sight and even tooth-loss. According to these ads, women didn’t lose hormones because they aged; they aged because they lost hormones.

If hormone replacement therapy was mostly hype or barely worked, that would be one thing. But more then ten years ago, hormone replacement therapy was found to cause most of the age-related afflictions it was supposed to prevent.

The toxic takeaway containers: Fast food lovers are exposed to 40% higher levels of chemicals that are known to disrupt hormones and have been linked to autism

The study showed that fast food lovers are at greater risk from phthalates - a group of chemicals used to soften and increase the flexibility of plastic and vinyl - often found in packaging.

Phthalates have been banned from children's toys and products such as teething rings and soft books because of their potential toxic effects.

The chemicals are known to disrupt hormones and have been implicated in several illnesses and condition including asthma to autism.

The new study, published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, is one of the first to look at fast-food consumption and exposure to phthalates.

Lead author Assistant Professor Ami Zota, of Milken Institute School of Public Health in the United States, said: 'People who ate the most fast food had phthalate levels that were as much as 40 per cent higher.

Censorship of medical truth reaches fever pitch as corrupt medical establishment attempts to silence growing number of films and books about cancer and vaccines

The censorship of medical truth has reached a fever pitch as books, films and documentaries are now being maliciously attacked and censored in a desperate ploy to prevent the public from learning the truth about cancer, vaccines, antidepressant drugs and more.

But it was not without controversy.

LONDON FILM FESTIVAL PULLS FILM ABOUT LONG TERM SURVIVORS AFTER PHARMA-AIDS CHARITIES THREATEN PROTEST

London, UK. LIFF, the London Independent Film Festival (http://www.liff.org/), has controversially axed its screening of the film Positive Hell, scheduled for April 17, in a move described by the film’s writer and narrator, Joan Shenton, as “blatant censorship” and “the latest case of ‘no platforming'”.

This morning, Ms Shenton announced that she had been contacted by LIFF director, Erich Schultz, to say that he had “pulled” the film after four HIV/AIDS charities had threatened protests at the screening venue and at festival sponsors’ premises “if we [LIFF] don’t comply”. Schultz also said he had received “over twenty protest letters”.

The axing has some echoes of Robert De Niro’s decision to remove the anti-vaccinaton documentary Vaxxed from the Tribeca film festival in New York at the end of March (http://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/mar/27/robert-de-niro-pulls-vacci...), though there is no suggestion that the two films are in any way similar.

For people with cataracts, a diet rich in vitamin C can stop the condition from progressing as rapidly

The new study featured more than 1,000 pairs of 60-year-old British female twins. Researchers say that they discovered those who took in large amounts of vitamin C in their diet were one-third less likely to develop cataracts over a 10-year period.

Why chemo is not the answer to cancer: shorter life spans, destruction of the immune system, and more

You may not know this, but there is an interesting – and disturbing – statistic regarding chemotherapy. When it all comes down to it, you might be surprised to know that 75 percent of doctors surveyed in a 2013 report said they would refuse the treatment for themselves.

That's three out of four.

And do you know why? Because they know of its devastating effects on the body and the immune system, and they are well aware that chemotherapy generally has a low overall success rate. And yet, this ineffective treatment is prescribed for just about every cancer there is.

Maryland Makes History By Banning Bee-Killing Pesticide

Maryland just led the way to save bees from harmful pesticides by passing a bill to eliminate the use of neonicotinoids, a first for any state in America. This class of agricultural chemicals is especially harmful to these important pollinating insects. In a major victory to protect the bees locally, the state…

Just Flasking Ridiculous!

By Jack Perry
April 12, 2016
Hey, did you know in Texas, it’s illegal to possess an Erlenmeyer flask without a permit from the government? What’s an Erlenmeyer flask? It’s that glass conical-bottom, narrow-necked flask you see in all the science labs. Remember high school science class? So why is a piece of science lab equipment illegal without das paperwerken from das government? Because it’s allegedly used to manufacture illegal drugs. Well, gosh, so are a lot of things! But this is a thing I have mentioned before here and now would like to expand on: Local government is often the most tyrannical because they can pass laws faster than the federal government can spend a billion dollars.
Webmaster addition: I use an Erlenmeyer flask to make nano-silver!

David Dolldolldoll • 6 hours ago
I know someone who is actively working in the mass spec labs to analyze this lead problem, and he reassured it's not that dangerous. Must of it is lead sulphates which are not toxic. Lead ions are toxic. This has been known for years, and I think it's just a sensationalized news article on a slow news day.

‘Perfect storm’ of factors made 2014-15 flu shot a bust

A “perfect storm” of conditions during the 2014-15 flu season may have contributed to the lowest effectiveness of the annual influenza vaccine that Canadian researchers have observed in more than a decade of monitoring.

Generally, getting inoculated reduces the risk of contracting influenza by about 40 to 60 per cent. But last year’s vaccine was found over all to be less than 10 per cent effective in preventing cases of flu – and in some people may have actually helped increase the risk of getting sick.

Scientist Releases EPA Study They Didn’t Want Published – Links Fracking to Water Contamination

By Claire Bernish

A new study has confirmed a controversial EPA draft report that was never fully completed: in one location, fracking chemicals contaminated a drinking water aquifer. Unlike previous reports which found potential contamination from methane seepage and wastewater elements, this study found the presence of chemicals employed to perform hydraulic fracturing in a potable aquifer.

Capitalism And Global Agribusiness: From Ford To Monsanto, It’s For Your Own Good

“We must… build our own local food systems that create new rural-urban links, based on truly agroecological food production… We cannot allow Agroecology to be a tool of the industrial food production model: we see it as the essential alternative to that model, and as the means of transforming how we produce and consume food into something better for humanity and our Mother Earth… Agroecology is political; it requires us to challenge and transform structures of power in society. We need to put the control of seeds, biodiversity, land and territories, waters, knowledge, culture and the commons in the hands of the peoples who feed the world.” – Extract from The Declaration of the International Forum for Agroecology, Nyeleni, Mali, 27 February 2015

Why VAXXED Was Shot Down At Tribeca — Up Close And Personal

Now, moving along: Jane Rosenthal’s husband, Craig Hatkoff, sits on the board of the NYU Child Study Center in New York—and that major, major Center is deeply involved in the research, study, and treatment of child psychiatric disorders. In case you’ve forgotten, autism is officially listed as a psychiatric disorder.

The NYU Center would never, ever, in a million years imagine that vaccines could cause autism. If they did imagine it, they’d shut up and march straight ahead with their brain imaging studies and other mainstream distractions.

Atrocious State of Cancer Treatment in the U.S.

Being diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a type of brain tumor, is considered a death sentence by modern medicine.

Despite a decades-long war on cancer, and the “most advanced” treatments known to 21st century oncologists, people who develop this aggressive, fast-growing cancer are given a prognosis of about 15 months to live — if they’re lucky.

Aggressive treatment, including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, is often started, even though oncologists know it won’t cure the disease.

Exclusive: Blocking Trump could hurt Republicans in election - Reuters/Ipsos poll

Without Trump at the head of the ticket the Repubs will go the way of the Whig Party. BYE!BYE! Repubs! Don't let the door hit you in the ass when you leave America!

A third of Republican voters who support Donald Trump could turn their backs on their party in November's presidential election if he is denied the nomination in a contested convention, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The results are bad news for Trump's rivals as well as party elites opposed to the real estate billionaire, suggesting that an alternative Republican nominee for the Nov. 8 presidential race would have a tougher road against the Democrats.

"If it’s a close election, this is devastating news" for the Republicans, said Donald Green, an expert on election turnout at Columbia University.

The Beginning Of The End For Obamacare: Largest US Health Insurer Exits Georgia, Arkanasas

In a statement, UnitedHealth said that "the company is evaluating the viability of the insurance exchange product segment and will determine during the first half of 2016 to what extent it can continue to serve the public exchange markets in 2017."

Needless to say, the implications for Obamacare - which had seen a surge in problems over the past year - were dire: As Bloomberg reported at the time, "a pull-back would deal a significant blow to President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. While UnitedHealth has been slower than some of its rivals to sell Obamacare policies since new government-run marketplaces for the plans opened in late 2013, the announcement may indicate that other insurers are struggling."

Rise Of The Independent Microfactory Could Decentralize Multinational Conglomerates

By Brian Berletic

General Electric (GE) in cooperation with opensource distributed automaker LocalMotors, MakerBot, and several other names in digital fabrication, opened FirstBuild, a microfactory that crowd-sourced design ideas, prototyped and manufactured them in small batches, before using GE’s mass production and marketing power to bring them to the international market.

As of 2016, over 1,000 ideas have been created there.

One potential advantage of this business model is that it allows large conglomerates struggling against growing competition worldwide to cut down on R&D and marketing.
