If the U.S. Goes to War With Iran, Netanyahu Will Be the Prime Suspect

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the only world leader to openly express support for the escalating U.S. campaign against Iran, but his statement is an exception to the general Israeli rule. In the two weeks that have passed since the U.S. announced it was reinforcing its military presence in the Persian Gulf, official Israel has mostly taken on a vow of silence. “Luckily, we are not involved,” naively optimistic defense officials briefed reporters.

Officials Reject Pompeo’s Claim Iran Is Working With al-Qaeda

In testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared that “there is no doubt there is a connection between the Islamic Republic of Iran and al-Qaeda. Period. Full stop.”

If the connection was that al-Qaeda has been fighting against Iran, and vice versa, for decades he might have a point. That’s clearly not Pompeo’s intention, however, and other officials are noting that he’s wrong.

Pentagon and State Department officials say Pompeo’s comments were “way out of proportion,” and that there “is nothing in the intelligence to suggest” that Iran and al-Qaeda are working together in some grand anti-US alliance.

ACTION ALERT: WaPo Must Acknowledge CIA Role in Pakistan Polio Crisis

The editorial, “The World Is Close to Conquering Polio. Humans Are Holding Us Back,” started off naming the Official Oriental bad guys:

The world’s long and ambitious quest to conquer polio has come tantalizingly close to success, only to slip away because of unforgivable behavior by thugs and exponents of ignorance.

The “thugs” named by the Post are “hard-line Islamist forces,” fueled by nebulous “social media.” While no doubt Islamist forces and their ability to communicate amongst themselves contribute to the problem, the other party primarily responsible for the recent surge in anti-vax sentiment in Pakistan—the US Central Intelligence Agency—is notably unmentioned.

War Crimes Pardons: A Terrible Memorial Day Idea

On May 16, 2008, near the town of Baiji in Iraq, 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna, US Army, murdered a prisoner. That was the verdict of the jury in his 2009 court martial, anyway. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison, but paroled in less than five. On May 6, 2019, US president Donald Trump pardoned Behenna.

As I write this, news reports indicate that Trump intends to celebrate Memorial Day by pardoning several other Americans convicted of (or accused of and not yet tried for) war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. That’s a horrible idea for several reasons.

One reason is that it’s morally repugnant to excuse the commission of crimes, especially violent crimes, for no other reason than that the criminal is a government employee.

A second reason is that it is detrimental to the good order and and discipline of the US armed forces to excuse violations of law by American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.

Has the New York Times declared war on Iran?

Once upon a time, the United States launched a war on Iraq with the help of false allegations of WMD.

The corporate media - and most memorably the US newspaper of record, the New York Times -thrust itself onto the PR frontlines by presenting as reality the unhinged claims of the George W Bush administration.

A repeat performance

Now, more than 16 years and an obscene quantity of Iraqi deaths later, it seems we may be witnessing a repeat performance of the same old media tricks, this time targeting Iran - although at least Times foreign affairs columnist Thomas Friedman has not yet decreed that the Iranians be made to “suck on this”.

First off, of course, there’s the ongoing nuclear hysteria, which apparently can’t be put to rest no matter how many times we review the facts.

THE PENTAGON ASKS TRUMP TO SEND THOUSANDS OF U.S. TROOPS TO THE MIDDLE EAST AS TENSIONS WITH IRAN CONTINUE TO RISE

SOURCE: THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

The more steps that we take toward a war with Iran, the more likely it becomes that somebody will do something really stupid that will actually trigger one. By cutting off Iran’s oil exports, we are threatening to completely wreck their economy, and at this point they feel backed into a corner. And the Iranians have already watched the U.S. invade two countries that they share a border with (Afghanistan and Iraq), and so it is understandable that they are a bit paranoid that it could happen to them too. President Trump keeps saying that he doesn’t want a war with Iran, but the Iranians do not believe a single word any U.S. politician says. Instead, they watch what we actually do very, very closely, and the fact that the Pentagon wants to deploy thousands of new troops to the Middle East is definitely going to freak them out. The following comes from Fox News…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, just because something is one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US and its military could do, is absolutely no guarantee that they won't do it.

And there is a paragraph after the last one I copied, which I don't believe at all; the writer of this article, characterizes Iran's leadership as "insane", and frankly, I wouldn't go there.

I think that the Iranians care as much for their kids, and their country, as we do for our kids and our country. In reading presstv.com (an English language version of Iranian state-approved news), you see kids, young men and young women, competing in both sports, and intellectual combat, like building and programming robots, and mathanasium challenges.

One of the best, highest ranked global universities for computer science, to be found in Iran

They understand that they live in the 21st century, and want their kids to be as competitive and ready, as they can possibly be.

So Mr. President, a word, please: any kind of invasion/attack against Iran, of course, preceded by a "false flag, to be blamed against it, (most probably courtesy of Mossad) is NOT what We the People wanted, when they voted you into office. They hired you to run this country on a peace and prosperity platform; not more endless wars.

And please understand, that if you do this, Israel's Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu will not give a rat's anus, if we wind up with hundreds, or thousand American troops dead or maimed for life.

Israel is always eager for other countries to fight their wars for it, so that the costs in blood, and money, will only be absorbed by those proxy fighters, and not Israel.

And there is another question about this potential for further deployment of Americans in the Middle East; what happens when Russia and/or China, decide to come in on Iran's side?!?

Do you remember what happened in Syria, when Russian troops and weaponry got rid if most of the jihadi there (including those paid for by US tax funds?!?)

Sir, please don't back away from asking this of Kenneth McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, and Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan; as of an article dated 16 May, at bloomberg.com stated:

US "Evidence" of Iran Threat readied for Release by the Pentagon. The article went on to state:

"The evidence may be released within a day, according to one of the officials, because the White House recognizes it needs to disclose more documentation to skeptical allies, U.S. lawmakers and the public.

These include images of the two dhows, slow-moving vessels that U.S. analysts believe were carrying cruise missiles that are designed to attack land targets and would be fired directly from the boats rather than shipped to other locations, according to one of the defense officials.

The vessels could be easily disguised among the many dhows that transit the Persian Gulf in routine commerce -- unlike the easily spotted speedboats that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has long used to intimidate crews of oil vessels from other nations and occasionally to harass American ships in the Persian Gulf"

Translation; they are "cherry picking" the data, to make it appear that there IS a credible threat from Iran, and that is what will be shown to Congress and to you, President Trump.

And Mr. President, forgive me, but if US lawmakers, the public, and allies may be characterized as being "skeptical", about these claims, please remember the following: The US government flat out lied about "Saddam Hussein's having alleged "weapons of mass destruction", to get the Iraq war going

It was all about the oil, and insuring that it was only sold in US dollars, and Iraq is still one hot, sticky mess from that never-ending war.

Mr. President, you and Congress may state the need for "confrontation", because Israel wants to get this war going quickly, as they are unsure if you are getting "cold feet" about it; but sir, if you do this, it will be another war, based on lies, to create confrontation where there could possibly be collaboration.

US governmental credibility has been well and truly flushed, when you ordered that the US withdraw from the P5+1 Agreement; please don't make this any worse than it already is, as the Middle East is already on the cusp of disaster.

The perverse logic of Britain’s foreign minister

Boycotting Israel is anti-Semitic.

That at least is the view of the German parliament, where a vote Friday saw lawmakers denounce – in a non-binding vote – the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, because “the ‘don’t buy’ stickers of the BDS movement on Israeli products [could be associated] with the Nazi call ‘don’t buy from Jews.’”

Now, of course, one might suggest that if anyone knows anything about anti-Semitism, well then the German parliament is where you might find them.

But that would be a rather crude World War II/Nazi reference which, when invoked, means you’ve already lost the argument. So we’ll steer clear.

One might also suggest that this is hardly a very watertight argument, that pretty much anything “could be associated” with or can be seen as “reminiscent of” pretty much anything.

It’s Time to Tell the Truth: Israeli Journalist Gideon Levy Supports Ilhan Omar’s Critique of Israel

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution Thursday condemning anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination, white supremacy and other forms of hate, following a week of debate among congressional Democrats. The controversy began after some lawmakers accused Democratic Congressmember Ilhan Omar of invoking anti-Semitic tropes while questioning U.S. foreign policy on Israel. The House leadership initially drafted a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in what was seen as a direct rebuke of Omar. But many progressive Democrats said Omar, one of the first two Muslim Congresswoman in U.S. history, was unfairly being singled out. The split within the Democratic Party forced the leadership to withdraw its initial resolution and then present a much broader one.

With a state Senate vote Tuesday, Nevada is close to becoming the latest state to drop the traditional practice of awarding all its electors to the presidential candidate who won the state. Instead, Nevada would award its six electors to whomever receives the most votes across the entire country.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – MAY 23, 2019: MILITANTS DEVELOP LARGE-SCALE ADVANCE ON ARMY POSITIONS

Militant groups are attacking key military and civilian infrastructure in the government-controlled area.

The Reconciliation Center for Syria revealed that militants launched 17 rockets at the Russian Hmeimim airbase early on May 22. 8 rockets did not reach the base. 9 – were intercepted.

In the evening of May 22, a squadron of armed unmanned aerial vehicles attacked Hama’s airbase. Pro-government sources said that the Syrian Air Defense Forces intercepted all the UAVs and the airbase sustained no damage.

Nonetheless, the Hama airbase was not the only target. The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency confirmed that at least one UAV attacked the Zara’a power plant in southern Hama causing “extensive damage to the plant’s equipment.”

The new wave of UAV attacks took place amid fierce fighting in northwestern Hama where the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recently lost the initiative and is now in defense.

Why North Korea called Joe Biden an “imbecile” and “a fool of low IQ”

North Korea just signaled its immense disdain for a top American leader. And no, it’s not President Donald Trump.

In a Tuesday statement, the state-run Korean Central News Agency published a scathing article targeting top Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden. While it contains bombastic language, the piece also includes pointed, insulting remarks about the former vice president and references the controversy over how he has interacted with women.

The reason North Korea is lashing out dates back to Biden’s campaign launch last Saturday, where he rhetorically asked a Philadelphia crowd, “Are we a nation that embraces dictators and tyrants like [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and [North Korean leader] Kim Jong Un?” That comment referred to Trump’s admiration of autocrats and apparent preference for them over democratic leaders.

The lies about World War II

In the aftermath of a war, history cannot be written. The losing side has no one to speak for it. Historians on the winning side are constrained by years of war propaganda that demonized the enemy while obscuring the crimes of the righteous victors. People want to enjoy and feel good about their victory, not learn that their side was responsible for the war or that the war could have been avoided except for the hidden agendas of their own leaders. Historians are also constrained by the unavailability of information. To hide mistakes, corruption, and crimes, governments lock up documents for decades. Memoirs of participants are not yet written. Diaries are lost or withheld from fear of retribution. It is expensive and time consuming to locate witnesses, especially those on the losing side, and to convince them to answer questions.

US Accuses Syria Of More Chemical Attacks Just As Chemical Weapons Narrative Crumbles

The Institute for Public Accuracy published a report today about the leaked engineering assessment from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons investigation into an alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria which directly contradicts the findings of the official OPCW report on the matter. Until the unauthorized release of this internal document the public was kept entirely uninformed of its existence, despite the serious military consequences of the questions it raises; the official story that the Syrian government had dropped chemical weapons in Douma was used to justify an airstrike on Syria days later.

Planned Parenthood donating $38 MILLION to 2020 Democrat candidates

Seems there are millions of dollars just laying around, folks, made "available" for Planned Parenthood to give away to anyone who supports executing live birth babies on the day they’re born. That’s strange. How did that come to be? Even Republicans, via paid taxes, are involuntarily funding population control by the extreme Left. Now the slush fund from this infanticide "movement" will be used to help Demoncrat-Socialist-Communists win more offices and others keep the ones they shouldn’t even have now.

Great. Murder babies in the womb, in the third trimester, and even on the day they’re born (the day they survive abortion), then use taxpayer money to fund more insane INFANTICIDE laws across America. What a plan. Planned Parenthood is planned genocide. They want black babies and Jewish babies removed from this planet before they ever take a breath. This is no conspiracy theory. They’ve been caught on video paying cash for baby parts. Keep reading.

PLUNDER – WHAT IS IT & WHO DOES IT?

France is the home of Frederick Bastiat whose philosophy of economics and freedom is noted and summarized below. Obviously, the leaders of France either never heard of Bastiat, or reject his philosophy out of hand.

In 1850, Frédéric Bastiat’s political theory was published in his work The Law. In this work, the Frenchman vigorously challenged what he believed to be a perversion of the real meaning of law and justice and called on his countrymen to seek true liberty that leads to prosperity. In France today, the people’s liberty has been plundered – that’s thanks to socialism – hey AOC; check it out!!!

For the sake of brevity, his work can be distilled down to a few basic points in question-and-answer format:

City Demands Giant US Flag Come Down, Camping World CEO Says ‘No Way’

At what point does government overstep its bounds and begin meddling too closely in the freedom of the American people?

That question has been at the heart of the left-right divide since the founding of our nation. And while that debate won’t be settled anytime soon, it’s safe to say that the line might be crossed when flying a large American flag is prohibited.

In Statesville, North Carolina, that’s exactly what the local government is trying to do. The city has filed a lawsuit intent on taking down a large U.S. flag from high atop a private business … and they’re demanding over $10,000 in fines at the same time.

Apple to be more upfront about the impact of iPhone updates

Apple has promised to be clearer and more upfront with iPhone users about battery health and performance, following action by the UK's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

The competition watchdog said it opened an investigation last year after finding that iPhone owners were not being warned clearly that their phone's performance could slow down following a 2017 software update designed to manage demands on the battery.

The CMA was worried that users might have tried to repair their phone or replace it because they didn't realise the software update had caused the handset to slow down. It also said that people found it hard to access information about the health of their phone's battery, which can degrade over time.

Kellyanne Conway Snaps at Pelosi After Speaker Says She Doesn’t Talk to President’s Staff

Kellyanne Conway snarked at Nancy Pelosi for being “really pro-woman” after the House Speaker said she only talks to the President, not his staff.

The two exchanged words after a tense moment in which President Trump walked into a meeting on infrastructure, blasted Democrats for conducting “phony investigations,” and promptly walked out.

Trump took issue with Pelosi’s claims that he had “engaged in a cover-up.”

After he bolted from the room, Pelosi reportedly told those in attendance that previous Presidents, unlike Trump, were willing to work with the opposition on infrastructure over the years. One source stated that Pelosi said she wasn’t surprised that Trump walked away.

China says trade talks can’t continue unless US addresses its ‘wrong actions’

The latest U.S. actions on trade are preventing negotiations with Beijing from proceeding, China’s Commerce Ministry said Thursday.

“If the U.S. would like to keep on negotiating it should, with sincerity, adjust its wrong actions. Only then can talks continue,” Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Gao Feng said Thursday in Mandarin, according to a CNBC translation.

He did not mention any U.S. actions specifically, but it’s been a tense couple of weeks between the world’s two-largest economies. President Donald Trump unexpectedly accused China of reneging on a deal earlier this month and announced that tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods would increase to 25% from 10% on May 10. Beijing retaliated with raising levies on $60 billion worth of U.S. products. In the last two weeks, his administration also put Chinese telecom giant Huawei on a blacklist that prevents it from buying from American companies without U.S. government permission.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Veritas over the past few days. Federal court is a grueling experience that I wish on no one. Your support and well-wishes have inspired my team to continue to fight for the rights that you and I hold so dear.

Friend, I wish you could have been there to witness this very important moment in the history of journalism. It was simply incredible.

When the judge explained his decision, he spoke eloquently, and he vindicated our methods and our existence.

SAN FRANCISCO PD EARNING UNIVERSAL CONDEMNATION FOR RAIDING A JOURNALIST'S HOME DURING ITS INTERNAL LEAK INVESTIGATION

SOURCE: TECH DIRT
When the San Francisco Police Department decided to externalize its internal investigation of a leaked document, things got unlawful and unconstitutional in a hurry. Deciding the best way to sniff out the leaker of a police report detailing the death of prominent public defender Jeff Adachi was through the front door of a local journalist, the SFPD now has a lot of explaining to do.
The SFPD raided journalist Bryan Carmody's home supposedly to find information that would lead them to one of its own officers. Carmody is a stringer and had shopped around a copy of the police report someone inside the SFPD leaked to him. None of this is criminal. Nothing about Carmody's information-gathering fell outside of the law. If anyone broke the law, it was the officer or PD employee who gave him the report.

GOLDMAN AND JPM SET THEIR SIGHTS ON THE “LITTLE PEOPLE’S” MONEY

When Goldman Sachs was negotiating its deal with New York City in 2005 to build its new headquarters building at 200 West Street, one of its requirements was that it have a seat along with the New York City Police Department in a taxpayer-funded spy center to keep the Main Street riffraff under surveillance. Goldman wanted the new surveillance center to be in place no later than December 31, 2009. Curious, isn’t it, that Goldman was prescient enough to think that the pitchforks might be coming out after an epic crash on Wall Street. The spy center was, indeed, built and both Goldman and JPMorgan Chase were given seats, along with the New York Fed, Citigroup and others. (See Wall Street Firms Spy On Protesters in Tax-Funded Center and 60 Minutes Takes a Pass on Wall Street’s Secret Spy Center.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me unsurprised by these moves.

Why people are investing in the stock market, during these volatile times, is a mystery to me, unless they have inside information which nearly guarantees that such investments are "bullet-proof"; of course, this is information to which both houses of Congress are privy, and because they are not required to put their investments into a blind trust, as is the President.

Let's, for example, look at the financial wellness of The Pel, and her husband: After the historic 2018 midterm elections, Rep. Nancy Pelosi was again confirmed to the role of speaker of the House of Representatives on Jan. 3, 2019.
As a couple, Pelosi and her husband have a combined net worth between -$58.7 million and $72.1 million.
Until 1987, the career politician worked in unpaid roles.

So, after she has made the statement in her news conference today, that "President Trump is after his own interests, not the people's interest", one has to wonder; what sweetheart deals has this lady made, to earn The Pel and her hubby, somewhere +/- $65 million dollars per year?!?

AFTER READING THIS ARTICLE ABOUT THE DANGER OF GMOS, YOU WILL PROBABLY NEVER WANT TO EAT GENETICALLY-MODIFIED FOOD AGAIN

Every single day, most Americans eagerly gobble down foods that contain ingredients that have been genetically-modified without ever considering the consequences. Most of us simply assume that the federal government would never allow us to eat GMOs if they were not safe. Unfortunately, it appears that the federal government has completely failed us. The material that I am about to share with you is deeply disturbing, and after reading this article there is a very good chance that you will never want to eat genetically-modified food ever again. But at this point it is almost impossible to completely avoid GMOs, because they are in almost everything. Unless they are specifically designated “organic”, most corn, soy, canola and sugar beets grown in America today have been genetically modified, and almost all packaged foods contain ingredients derived from at least one of those sources.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Playing with the building blocks of life, in the food chain, can be hazardous to your health; and Congress does nothing about this, because they get huge amounts of campaign money from companies like Sygenta and Monsanto, to look the other way.

NO WONDER OBAMA INTEL CHIEFS PANICKING – TRUMP TO DECLASSIFY “BUCKET 5” RUSSIAGATE DOCS

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE

As Congressional Democrats insist on conducting post-Mueller probes into President Trump and those around him, much of the recent infighting and backpedaling we’ve seen from former Obama intel chiefs is starting to make sense.

Appearing with Fox News‘s Sean Hannity Tuesday night, The Hill‘s John Solomon revealed that according to his sources (and Hannity’s as well), President Trump will begin declassifying ‘Russiagate’ documents in the next 6-7 days.

Among those will be the so-called “Bucket Five” – documents which were originally presented to the Gang of Eight in 2016, which included everything the FBI and DOJ used against Trump campaign aide Carter Page – including the FISA surveillance application and its underlying exculpatory intelligence documents which the FISA court may have never seen.

According to John Solomon, #declas is coming in 7-8 days; looks likely after POTUS Japan visit and just before a visit to UK, or between 5/29 and 6/2.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely why we had that"Pelosiopolous" moment yesterday (a place for those living in that deluded and dangerous mental construct which is near that of Nancy Pelosi) when "The Pel" accused President Trump of a "cover-up."

It was all planned political theatre, just as Kabuki-like, as one could imagine, and carefully scripted by those who pathologically fail to understand, that when they are prone to these outbreaks of bad, but well-timed, political theatre, the people who hired these people to represent them, are the ones who suffer.

I am watching the crawl on Faux right now, and it is as though nothing else but else but this wretched mud slinging matters. The Pel is speaking right now, again, accusing President Trump of a "cover up". Of course, she really has nothing;, but in the fog-filled, ambien-esque reality of fact-free, political theatre, emotional couching and attempted emotional manipulation, are much more important than facts.

The Pel is stating that President Trump's priority "is his personal interest, not public interest"; I would really like to know precisely what she means, because she has, so far, said a great bunch of nothing, and now has made the statement that President Trump has "pulled a stunt", and "wants the US to be on a path to impeachment." This is how she is laying the groundwork for impeachment. But as we know with the impeachment spectacle of her BFF, President Clinton, during one of his "infidelity fests" with Monica Lewinsky, the accusation does not always mean conviction.

Folks, we are hovering on the verge of World War 3, precisely because Congress has virtually abnegated its responsibility to declare war in Iraq; Somalia, Afghanistan; Libya; Yemen; and here comes the wind-up, and the pitch, for a war against Iran, whose only collective "crime" has been, that it has refused to allow its oil to be sold only in US dollars.

We the People cannot tolerate this lack of action by Congress, and this vile, vituperative "misdirection" by The Pel, and if, somewhere between Memorial Day, and the 4th of July, we see a huge false flag to be blamed on Iran, (most probably courtesy of Mossad), please don't tell me we didn't warn you, that this was coming.

ICE SEEKS TECH TO TRACK ELECTRONIC DEVICES—EVEN THROUGH TIME

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is looking for a cloud-based subscription service that can pinpoint the exact locations of cellphones, laptops and other connected devices—even going back in time.

ICE is searching for geolocation services technology that can give an accurate location—either pinpoint or a designated polygonal area—for connected devices within a specific time window. The service should be able to identify locations going back at least two years or more.

According to a request for information posted Monday to FedBizOpps, ICE agents may use the service to locate electronic devices from geolocation data obtained through providers and applications, though it is unclear if the service could be used to pull geolocation data from confiscated devices. The service should be to pull data from numerous sources, including “Wi-Fi, Apps, Software Development Kit (SDK), Bidstream, Beacons, etc.,” and then reduce that information to a single data point.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am actually having a hard time in understanding why ICE would be putting out this RFI, other than to spy even more intensely on innocent civilians, who are doing nothing wrong.

I would be interested in the percentage of illegal aliens who come across our Southern border, who are actually set up with cell phones and laptops; my sense would be, doggone few, because if they have cell phones and laptops, they most probably would be doing reasonably well, economically, in their countries of origin.

Color this, should it get fulfilled, just another illegal data grab against ordinary Americans.

Fluoride chemicals added to U.S. drinking water are unprocessed TOXIC WASTE; water fluoridation needs to end

In fact, America is one of very few developed countries that fluoridates its water, with Green Med Info reporting that just 5 percent of the world’s population consumes this type of water. More people in America drink it than in all other nations combined, and we’re paying the price in terms of our health.

That’s because the fluoride chemicals that are placed in our drinking water are actually unprocessed toxic waste products. Most people never take the time to question where all that fluoride added to our water comes from, and the answer is shocking: It is generally pollutants captured from the phosphate fertilizer industry in Florida or chemical imports that come from China, known for a lack of regulation and adulteration. These chemicals aren’t purified before they’re added to drinking water, and it’s not at all unusual for them to contain significant amounts of heavy metals like arsenic, mercury and lead.
