War Crimes Committed by Federal Forces During the Civil War

We have all come been taught that Abraham Lincoln was a gentle man, “Honest Abe,” a man who advocated “malice toward none and charity for all.” We have been taught that Lincoln would have opposed the policy pursued by Radical Republicans like Thaddeus Stevens, which pushed for vengeful, retributive policies against the South. We have been taught in books, movies and documentaries that Lincoln instead preferred a policy of healing that neither punished the defeated Confederate government and Army nor average Southern civilians.

The Sand Creek Massacre

Colorado Territory during the 1850's and 1860's was a place of phenomenal growth in Colorado homes spurred by gold and silver rushes. Miners by the tens of thousands had elbowed theirway into mineral fields, dislocating and angering the Cheyennes and Arapahos. The Pike's Peak Gold Rush in 1858 brought the the tension to a boiling point. Tribesmen attacked wagon trains, mining camps, and stagecoach lines during the Civil War, when the military garrisons out west were reduced by the war. One white family died within 20 miles of Denver. This outbreak of violence is sometimes referred to as the Cheyenne-Arapaho War or the Colorado War of 1864-65.

Was My Lai just one of many massacres in Vietnam War?

In a war in which lip service was often paid to winning "hearts and minds", the US military had an almost singular focus on one defining measure of success in Vietnam: the body count - the number of enemy killed in action.Very quickly the phrase - "If it's dead and Vietnamese, it's VC" - became a defining dictum of the war and civilian corpses were regularly tallied as slain enemies or Viet Cong.

Civilians, including women and children, were killed for running from soldiers or helicopter gunships that had fired warning shots, or being in a village suspected of sheltering Viet Cong.

At the time, much of this activity went unreported - but not unnoticed.

Family's newly built dream home in Hawaii is destroyed by the Kilauea volcano just two weeks after they moved from California

A California family's newly built dream home in Hawaii has been destroyed by the state's erupting volcano just two weeks after they moved to the Big Island.

Jon Parr said he had spent the last 10 years preparing to move his wife, Zusje, and their two sons from Santa Cruz, California, to Hawaii.

They sold their home in Santa Cruz to their dream home in Lanipuna Gardens for 'precisely two weeks' before they were forced to evacuate when the Kilauea volcano erupted on May 3, eventually causing fissure No. 20 to open just 200 feet from their home.

US opioid crisis: Mussels off Seattle found with oxycodone in their system

As the US continues to grapple with a widespread opioid epidemic, alarming research from Seattle indicates that the local population is consuming so much oxycodone that it’s seeping into the local water supply.

Scientists at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have found trace amounts of oxycodone in the Puget Sound using a study involving mussels. The shellfish are filter feeders who gain nourishment from their surroundings, while simultaneously absorbing whatever contaminants are also in the water – making them an ideal barometer for environmental scientists to test water pollution in a given area.

Drug Companies Want To Use The State To Shut Down The Competition

Blue jeans have more in common with drugs than you might think.

One of the more consequential episodes in the history of crony capitalism occurred in 17th and 18th century France. Cheap clothing made from cotton was threatening the rich woolen, linen, and silk manufacturers, so they persuaded the government to ban it. In short order, government agents began spying into homes and coaches and reporting on anyone who dared to wear the new fabric. Thousands of violators of the ban were rounded up and either sent to prison or to ships as galley slaves, which was a death sentence.

CANADIANS SUBJECT TO CIA BRAINWASH EXPERIMENTS SEEK DAMAGES

Canadians subjected to CIA brainwashing experiments at McGill University's Allan Memorial Institute are taking legal action against the federal government, demanding a public apology and compensation.

The Survivors Allied Against Government Abuse(SAAGA) group met in Montreal, Canada, on May 20. "The government should offer an apology and there should be recognition of the injustice that was done," said Gina Blasbalg, a patient at the institute in 1960.

Dr. Ewen Cameron, who co-founded the World Psychiatric Association, served as director of the Allan Memorial Institute psychiatric hospital between 1943 and 1964.

Cameron oversaw 'depatterning' and 'psychic driving' experiments which attempted to erase a patient's memories and reprogram them with new thoughts, according to CBC News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was a monstrous crime against humanity, and should be treated as such, by both the Canadian and American governments.

Hawaiians Panic As Lava Reaches Offline Power Plant, More Lava Pours Into Ocean

The Puna Geothermal Venture in Hawaii is secure, and if lava did encroach on it, the danger of a toxic gas release is “very low,” authorities said. Not only that, but the power plant was taken offline when the Kilaeau volcano began erupting earlier this month, so blackouts are not expected.

Nonetheless, the lava is threatening to destroy the power plant. Hawaii Electric Light officials confirmed that if the lava does take out the plant, no blackouts should occur. Older, diesel-powered plants have been brought online to provide electricity in the wake of the erupting volcano, Jim Kelly, a spokesman for HEL, told ABC News.

Dirty Doctors

In 2016, the number of drug overdose deaths in the U.S. rose to nearly 64,000 people, a 21 percent increase over 2015 and an all-time high. Roughly 2 in 3 of those deaths were attributed to opioids.

The heart of America’s opioid crisis isn’t just rooted in the people who use drugs – but also where the drugs originate. In February 2016, Dr. Hsiu-Ying “Lisa” Tseng of Los Angeles became the first doctor in the U.S. to be convicted of murder for overprescribing opioids to multiple patients. Tseng was sentenced to 30 years to life for the deaths of three patients, including after she sold Xanax and oxycodone to a college student who later died after mixing the substances with alcohol.

HAWAII POWER PLANT IN JEOPARDY AS LAVA FROM KILAUEA VOLCANO CREEPS CLOSER

Following significant activity from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, a geothermal power plant under threat of encroaching lava has plugged its production wells in order to prevent the release of toxic gases. Since the onset of volcanic activity, the Puna Geothermal has been a point of concern for citizens who fear heat generated could interact with chemicals used or toxic substances could be released.

Ten wells at the plant had to be “quenched,” or cooled down with cold water in order to fend off the volcanic pressure from below. Gas levels are being monitored closely, and any abnormal spike in such levels could potentially prompt a mass evacuation due to potential meltdown conditions being reached at the plant.

The plant has been a point of contention amongst citizens since its creation in 1998, as it is believed by many to be built on sacred land. However, scientists claim the location of the plant makes it primed to harness renewable energy from the earth.

Blue Flames Join the Lava Light Show on Hawaii During Kilauea Eruption

People around the world have been transfixed by images of red and orange lava fountains oozing out of volcanic vents on Hawaii’s Big Island. Now a new color has joined the mix: the blue flames of burning methane gas.

A photo shared by the United States Geological Survey shows striking blue flames peeking through the cracks in a street. Lava from the Kilauea volcano has been burning through plants and shrubs, producing methane.

The gas “can seep into subsurface voids and explode when heated” or “emerge from cracks in the ground several feet away,” the USGS said. Once ignited, it produces a blue flame.

“It’s very dramatic. It’s very eerie,” USGS scientist Jim Kauahikaua said.

Hawaii volcano belches new ash plume as geothermal wells secured

The restive Kilauea Volcano belched clouds of ash into the skies over Hawaii’s Big Island twice more on Wednesday as civil defense authorities reported that pressurized geothermal wells at a nearby power plant had been spared from approaching lava.

The latest back-to-back upheavals of ash from the main summit crater of Kilauea — one before dawn and another several hours later — came on the 21st day of what geologists rank as one of the biggest eruption cycles in a century from one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

Did Fracking Cause The Hawaii Volcano Eruption?

On the Big Island of Hawaii, where the Kilauea volcano has explosively erupted, there is a geothermal energy plant. It is the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) Plant, in Puna.

There is a long-running debate about whether PGV is fracking. The debate may be a matter of terminology, because in the geothermal process, as hawaiifracking.com reports, “…the drilling and the injection of cold water into hot rocks used in geothermal energy plants does fracture the rocks, which can induce earthquakes and through contamination of the atmosphere and water tables can affect our health and safety.”

Whether deep injection of fluid aims to capture oil, gas, or heat (geothermal), the beginning stage of the process is the same.

Earthquakes induced by this water-injection could obviously trigger a volcano.

Webmaster addition: Obviously there is no oil or gas to be found here in Hawaii. It's all volcanoes out here.

Empathy for Cannabis As One Choice for Depression

By Susan Boskey

Cherokee proverb:”Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.”

In my last article, "Depression on the Rise and the Cannabis Response," I wrote about how the diagnosis for depression rose 33% between 2011 and 2014, some possible causes for it and how cannabis used therapeutically is helping people.

Once the article was published, comments arrived. One comment spoke about taking personal responsibility for one’s decisions in life asserting that cannabis was “not the answer” and another, “It certainly helped me break free of debilitating depression.”...

Putin’s Peace Efforts Are Coming To Naught

The Trump regime has sabotaged Putin’s peace efforts in Syria, Iran, Ukraine, and North Korea.

In the interest of peace Putin has avoided responding to US and Israeli provocations in Syria. Putin went so far as to invite the war criminal and genocidal maniac Netanyahu to Russia for the celebration of Russia’s victory over Germany in World War II. Netanyahu accepted, but showed Putin who is boss by ordering illegal Israeli military attacks on Syrian army positions just prior to his departure for Russia.

Lycopene, the pigment that gives tomatoes their color, is one of the most powerful anti-cancer agents yet discovered

A new review of studies published in Journal of Biological Regulators and Homeostatic Agents credits lycopene with interfering with the proliferation of cancer cells and slowing the progression of the disease. The team reported that lycopene also helps prevent malignant tumors from metastasizing, or spreading to other sites in the body.

Another study, published in the Journal of Cellular Physiology, found that tomato extracts interfere with the ability of cancer cells to clone themselves.

Extensive studies have also been undertaken to examine the potential of lycopene to fight ovarian cancer – considered to be the most lethal of all gynecological cancers.

A study published in the American Journal of Cancer Research found that when mice which had been implanted with human ovarian cancer cells were given lycopene, their tumors were dramatically reduced in number.

Breast cancer drug lapatinib ACCELERATES cancer cell growth, concludes new study

The researchers say that lapatinib’s potential to cause accelerated cancer growth “may” explain why it did so poorly in clinical trials. While the drug may not always result in expedited cancer growth, the team found that lapatinib’s purported method of action is actually its undoing.

As sources explain, lapatinib is what’s known in the cancer industry as a “kinase inhibitor,” and its purpose is to “switch off” a protein called HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2). HER2 is responsible for encouraging cancer cells to grow and divide. Many cancer treatments (like lapatinib) work by turning off HER2 and thusly, telling cancer cells to stop growing or die. But, as the scientists now know, lapatinib doesn’t tell the cancer cells to die — it actually causes them to grow faster.

'Highly-experimental' gene-edited super crops rich in omega 3 will be grown in the UK for the first time after scientists exploit a legal loophole

The field trial will investigate whether genetic engineering can produce super-crops rich in omega 3 oils to boost production of the food supplement.

The government has approved the farming of gene-edited (GE) Camelina oilseed crops because, unlike genetically modified (GM) plants, they contain no 'foreign' DNA from other species.

Instead their genome is changed in ways that could have happened naturally or through traditional selective breeding methods.

However, green campaigners claim growing genetically engineered crops in fields risks reducing crop biodiversity and damaging the local ecosystem.

US is scrambling to fix a ‘serious’ cooling problem on its $350 MILLION weather satellite that could make its photos of Earth useless

The GOES-17 satellite's instrument for taking images of hurricanes, wildfires, volcanic eruptions is now malfunctioning, experts say.

Its infrared sensors aren't cooling properly, meaning they won't work when the satellite is on the night side of the Earth and directly exposed to the sun's rays.

Experts are scrambling to establish the cause of the problem to fix it, anticipating this will take at least several months.

Toxic cloud caused by Hawaii volcano lava emerges over ocean

White plumes of acid and extremely fine shards of glass billowed into the sky over Hawaii as molten rock from Kilauea volcano poured into the ocean, creating yet another hazard from an eruption that began more than two weeks ago: A toxic steam cloud.

Authorities on Sunday warned the public to stay away the cloud that formed by a chemical reaction when lava touched seawater.

Further upslope, lava continued gushing out of large cracks in the ground in residential neighborhoods in a rural part of the Big Island. The molten rock made rivers that bisected forests and farms as it meandered toward the coast.

The rate of sulfur dioxide gas shooting from the ground fissures tripled, leading Hawaii County to repeat warnings about air quality. At the volcano’s summit, two explosive eruptions unleashed clouds of ash. Winds carried much of it toward the southwest.

Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades

At the age of 46, DeWayne Johnson is not ready to die. But with cancer spread through most of his body, doctors say he probably has just months to live. Now Johnson, a husband and father of three in California, hopes to survive long enough to make Monsanto take the blame for his fate.

On 18 June, Johnson will become the first person to take to trial on allegations that it has spent decades hiding the cancer-causing dangers of its popular Roundup herbicide products – and his case has just received a major boost.

Last week Judge Curtis Karnow issued an order clearing the way for jurors to consider not just scientific evidence related to what caused Johnson’s cancer, but allegations that Monsanto suppressed evidence of the risks of its weed killing products. Karnow ruled that the trial will proceed and a jury would be allowed to consider possible punitive damages.

Monsanto Tries To Stop Lawsuit But Judge Greenlights Case Against Roundup’s Misleading Label

“In the face of EPA’s poor regulation of pesticides, misleading pesticide product labeling cannot be left unchecked. The court’s decision to allow our case to move forward, in denying Monsanto’s motion to dismiss, is critical to showing that the company is deceiving the public with a safety claim on its Roundup (glyphosate) label. Its advertising and labeling claim that Roundup ‘targets an enzyme found in plants but not in people or pets’ is false, given the devastating harm that glyphosate has on beneficial bacteria in the gut biome. The disruption of the gut biome is associated with a host of 21st century diseases, including asthma, autism, bacterial vaginosis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, Crohn’s disease, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, leaky gut syndrome, multiple sclerosis, obesity, Type 1 and 2 diabetes, and Parkinson’s.

Rudy Giuliani won deal for OxyContin maker to continue sales of drug behind opioid deaths

The US government missed the opportunity to curb sales of the drug that kickstarted the opioid epidemic when it secured the only criminal conviction against the maker of OxyContin a decade ago.

Purdue Pharma hired Rudolph Giuliani, the former New York mayor and now Donald Trump’s lawyer, to head off a federal investigation in the mid-2000s into the company’s marketing of the powerful prescription painkiller at the centre of an epidemic estimated to have claimed at least 300,000 lives.

While Giuliani was not able to prevent the criminal conviction over Purdue’s fraudulent claims for OxyContin’s safety and effectiveness, he was able to reach a deal to avoid a bar on Purdue doing business with the federal government which would have killed a large part of the multibillion-dollar market for the drug.

The former New York mayor also secured an agreement that greatly restricted further prosecution of the pharmaceutical company and kept its senior executives out of prison.

After another Kilauea eruption, photos show a slow-motion disaster

Hawaii’s Mount Kilauea volcano erupted once again yesterday, spewing ash more than 30,000 feet in the air.

It’s the latest in a series of eruptions on the state’s Big Island. The eruptions, which started several weeks ago, have resulted in 21 lava-seeping fissures, clouds of toxic gas, and the destruction of dozens of homes. Around 2,000 people have been evacuated.

“Every day has gotten worse,” one Big Island resident told CNN.

The May 17 eruption suggests that Kilauea’s heightened activity is far from ceasing. But Reuters also noted that while a miles-high ash cloud may seem apocalyptic, the volcanic activity so far has not been nearly as bad as it could have been.

Haunting Timelapse Shows Hawaii’s Glowing Kilauea Volcano From Above

Normally, the wide-angle camera at the Gemini North telescope is used to monitor atmospheric conditions, but officials at the high-altitude observatory recently used it to create this stunning, 45-second-long timelapse.

The vantage point is from Mauna Kea, a dormant Big Island volcano that’s 13,800 feet (4,200 meters) high, and located 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Mount Kilauea. The infrared filter was removed from the camera, giving the volcanic glow its whitish-blue hue, rather than the expected red glow from the lava.

THE LINK BETWEEN GUT BACTERIA AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

Humans are symbiots. About half of what makes us,us,isn't us. Anything that destroys your gut bacteria will make you sick with chronic disease.
Your genetics predispose you to various degenerative disorders when you encounter antibiotics,vaccines,Roundup and other poisons.

Scientists have uncovered a new molecular pathway connecting the gut with the brain, and if we can learn how to control it, we may be able to slow down or even stop multiple sclerosis and other neurological disorders, scientists say.

Yes, Virginia, There Is a Deep State

At the end dismissed by mainstream commentators as “conspiracy theory,” the Deep State is an invisible second government which acts in a coordinated manner to protect its prerogatives and advance its interests and favored policies versus changes supposedly demanded by “the people” via their elected representatives in Congress and the presidency. The premier example of this view is the claim that John F. Kennedy was assassinated by the CIA and the military industrial complex because (in one version) he was about to get the US out of Vietnam.

If that end of the spectrum sounds crazy to you, consider:

Hawaii Is Losing Its Most Iconic Tree to Disease

Over the last several years, a deadly fungal disease has killed hundreds of thousands of native Hawaiian ??hi?a trees. Before now, the disease—Rapid ??hi?a Death—was limited to Hawai?i Island. But the disease-causing fungus has now been found on the island of Kaua?i. And that’s a big problem, considering that ??hi?a is arguably the most important tree in the archipelago’s sensitive island ecosystems and traditional Hawaiian culture.

A.I. Takes Over Hospital Jobs In London, Implantable Smart Devices In Soldiers, And Growing Organs

By Aaron Kesel

University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and the Alan Turing Institute aim to bring ‘game-changing’ benefits of artificial intelligence to NHS patients and replace some workers, The Guardian reported.

The tasks traditionally performed by doctors and nurses, from diagnosing cancer on CT scans to deciding which A&E patients are seen first, will now be able to be conducted by A.I...

'No one has faced this before' --- New eruptions at Hawaii volcano sends lava closer to power plant

Authorities in Hawaii were scrambling to firm up contingency plans Tuesday as hot, powerful lava flowing from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano slowly encroached on a Big Island power plant.

The lava flow entered the 800-acre property of the Puna Geothermal Venture Plant on Monday and had stalled at a swale about 300 yards from the nearest underground well. On Tuesday, the lava was advancing.

"Fissure 6 reactivated last night and has been erupting since around midnight," Hawaii County civil defense officials said in a statement. "The flows from Fissure 6 are slowly flowing closer to PGV property."

If lava breaches wells, authorities fear it could release hydrogen sulfide, a toxic and flammable gas. Most of the wells have been capped with a thick, steel plate.

Thomas Travis, an administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, has warned that the intense heat could diminish the strength of the metal.

The psychiatric Matrix: what you need to know

First of all, as I reported some months ago, 25% of college students in America have received a diagnosis of a mental disorder, or are on psychiatric drugs. I mention this to indicate how widespread psychiatric control has become.

That statistic has been reported by NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

NAMI also states: “Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.8 million, or 18.5%—experiences mental illness in a given year.”

These figures are earthshaking. They reflect a relentless push, by organized psychiatry and their pharmaceutical partners, to expand the diagnoses of mental disorders and the toxic drugging that follows.

Kilauea's Wrath Threatens Power Plant — And Hawaii's Most Powerful Industry

In the weeks since the Kilauea volcano began belching lava into Hawaii's residential areas, the fiery flow has destroyed dozens of structures and covered scores of acres on the Big Island. But authorities fear its destructive reach could ravage at least two more cornerstones of the state: its power supply and, a little less tangibly, its all-important tourism industry.

On Monday evening local time, the Hawaii County Civil Defense agency announced that lava from nearby fissures had begun to encroach on the southern edge of one of the state's key sources of power, the Puna Geothermal Venture.

The plant harvests hot liquid and steam from underground wells to drive turbine generators for electricity, which is then sold to the state's largest utility. The plant provides roughly a quarter of the Big Island's power, according to Reuters.

Hawaii volcano eruption: Has Highway 137 Hawaii been hit? Lava enters sea

MOLTEN lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has sped towards major routes, threatening to cut off key evacuation roads for coastal residents - but has Highway 137 been hit yet? How far away is the lava flow?

Residents were airlifted to safety from the Puna area as new explosive eruptions caused boiling lava from two huge cracks at Fissure 20 to merge into a fast-flowing river.

One homeowner was seriously injured after being splattered with lava from the fresh eruptions as he sat on his third-floor balcony.

Janet Snyder, a spokesperson for the Office of the Mayor, County of Hawaii, said: "It hit him on the shin and shattered everything there down on his leg,”.

She added lava spatters “can weigh as much as a refrigerator and even small pieces of spatter can kill”.
