Whoa! President Donald Trump sends a letter telling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that her scheduled trip to Egypt, Brussels and Afghanistan “has been postponed.”

“Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative,” Trump added.

President Trump Signs Bill Guaranteeing Back Pay For Federal Workers

President Trump on Wednesday signed the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act of 2019, guaranteeing back pay to over 800,000 federal workers at the conclusion of the government shutdown.

The White House quietly noted the move, saying it was done behind closed doors and with no media present.

Workers were not in any real danger of losing wages due to the shutdown, but a bill guaranteeing their pay puts it on record that any wages not earned during that time will be recompensated.

FISA shocker: DOJ official warned Steele dossier was connected to Clinton, might be biased

When the annals of mistakes and abuses in the FBI’s Russia investigation are finally written, Bruce Ohr almost certainly will be the No. 1 witness, according to my sources.

The then-No. 4 Department of Justice (DOJ) official briefed both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative’s work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and might be biased.

Ohr’s briefings, in July and August 2016, included the deputy director of the FBI, a top lawyer for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and a Justice official who later would become the top deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller.

Report: DOJ’s Bruce Ohr Shared Unverified Dossier Intel with Prosecutors Now on Mueller Team

In 2016, DOJ official Bruce Ohr shared details from his meetings with anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steele with his colleagues, including senior FBI officials and prosecutors now assigned to the Mueller investigation, according to Fox News.

In August, Ohr testified behind closed doors to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees where he discussed details of his 2016 meetings with Steele. It was during that testimony that he confirmed he shared information from Steele with then-deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, then-FBI attorney Lisa Page, then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and the man now known as Mueller’s “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann.

“Andy McCabe, yes and met with him and Lisa Page and provided information to him. I subsequently met with Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, and eventually (an FBI agent),” he testified. “And I also provided this information to people in the criminal division specifically Bruce Swartz, Zainab Ahmad, Andrew Weissmann.”

Key Justice Department officials, including Mueller deputy, knew about dossier

Testimony last year before a House task force investigating the Trump-Russia affair confirmed that top Justice Department officials knew about the Trump dossier earlier than first thought, and that among those who knew was Andrew Weissmann, who went on to become the top deputy of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Bruce Ohr, the fourth-ranking official in the Justice Department, told the House task force that he met with Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the dossier, at a Washington hotel on July 30, 2016. At that point, Steele, recruited for the job by Glenn Simpson of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, had completed a few installments of the dossier, including the salacious and never-verified sex allegation featuring Donald Trump and prostitutes in a Moscow hotel. Ohr testified that shortly after meeting with Steele, "I wanted to provide the information he had given me to the FBI."

EXCLUSIVE: In Closed-Door Testimony, Papadopoulos Identified Alleged Spy in Trump Campaign

George Papadopoulos, the former foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, revealed during a closed-door interview with congressional lawmakers in Washington the name of the man he believes was a spy working within the campaign, according to a transcript of the testimony reviewed by The Epoch Times.

During a day-long session with lawmakers on the House Judiciary and Oversight committees on Oct. 25, 2018, Papadopoulos, under penalty of perjury, detailed a series of what he described as “strange” interactions with a member of the Trump campaign. The timing and content of that person’s communications led Papadopoulos to suspect that the person was covertly working on behalf of U.S. intelligence.

Five Reasons I’m Excited About Tulsi Gabbard’s Candidacy

Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard has announced her intent to campaign for President of the United States, and the entire political spectrum is shitting bricks about it. Mainstream liberals and neocons are calling her a Putin puppet and Assad’s BFF, leftists and progressives are criticizing her associations with right-wing factions in India and anti-LGBT comments she made in the early 2000s, conspiracy analysts are criticizing her Council on Foreign Relations membership, and the Zionist elements of Trump’s base are openly promising to destroy her candidacy. A lot of others, myself included, got a lot more interested in the 2020 elections when she threw her hat in.

We have no meaningful enemies, but because a handful of lunatics is riding around with US provided vehicles and weapons in the Middle East creating mayhem, we have to spend trillions to police them.

It’s nuts.

Never in its history has the US been involved in so many wars without an aggressor and worst of all, it’s now considered “business as usual.”

William Barr’s Connection to Ruby Ridge, Defending FBI Snipers

The Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Attorney General nominee William Barr have focused heavily on Barr’s views on Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But nobody is asking about Barr’s legal crusade for blanket immunity for federal agents who killed American citizens.

Barr received a routine questionnaire from the Judiciary Committee asking him to disclose his past work including pro bono activities “serving the disadvantaged.” The “disadvantaged” that Barr spent the most time helping was an FBI agent who slayed an Idaho mother holding her baby in 1992. Barr spent two weeks organizing former Attorneys General and others to support “an FBI sniper in defending against criminal charges in connection with the Ruby Ridge incident.” Barr also “assisted in framing legal arguments advanced… in the district court and the subsequent appeal to the Ninth Circuit,” he told the committee.

Google caught censoring search results on abortions, Maxine Waters & more – report

Internal discussions from Google indicate that the search giant is “manually” curating blacklists of search terms – including Rep. Maxine Waters, anti-gun activist David Hogg, and abortion – on YouTube and other services.

The conservative news site Breitbart says it obtained an internal discussion thread from a Google employee showing the existence of a blacklist, as well as a partial list of blacklisted terms from another source within the company.

“We have tons of white- and blacklists that humans manually curate,” Breitbart quoted one Google employee. “Hopefully this isn’t surprising or particularly controversial.”

EU Wails Austria’s Exit from UN Migrant Pact Aligned Bloc with Trump, ‘Damaged Us All’

Austria’s decision to leave the UN Migration Compact while holding the European Union’s rotating presidency brought “shame” on the bloc by aligning it with U.S. President Donald Trump, EU forces have angrily proclaimed.

At a debate with Sebastian Kurz in Strasbourg on Tuesday, critics including the European Commission president lined up to slam the Austrian Chancellor’s withdrawal from the agreement, which declares mass migration to be “inevitable, necessary, and desirable”, as the low point of the country’s six-month stint in charge of the presidency.

Jean-Claude Juncker, who has previously claimed the so-called Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration would somehow reduce illegal immigrant flows, said Austria’s refusal to sign was the only stain on an otherwise “really impressive” presidency, denouncing Kurz for sending out “negative signals” about the document.

Remainer Chancellor Tells Big Business MPs Will Stop Clean Brexit in Leaked Call

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip “Remainer Phil” Hammond told corporate bosses that senior MPs would stop a “No Deal” Brexit — where Britain makes a clean break from the EU — according to a leaked telephone call.

The audio, obtained by The Telegraph, also outlines how the Remain-supporting Chancellor had discussed how Article 50, the treaty mechanism for leaving the EU, could be extended in a call with the 330 business people following Prime Minister Theresa May’s historic parliamentary defeat on her Withdrawal Agreement on Tuesday.

Raising the issue early on in the conversation of whether “the option of No Deal” can be taken “off the table,” Mr Hammond said: “Everyone on the call will be aware that a bill has been tabled today and amendments will be tabled on Monday by backbenchers from across the House which would have the effect of removing the threat of No Deal.

Delingpole: Brexit Is Now Hanging by a Thread

Prime Minister Theresa May has (narrowly) survived the vote of no confidence and delivered another of her bullish speeches about how the people voted for Brexit and how Brexit is what she plans to deliver.

“Overwhelmingly, the British people want us to get on with delivering Brexit, and also address the other important issues they care about. But the deal I’ve worked to agree with the European Union was rejected by MPs and by a large margin. I believe it is my duty to deliver on the British people’s instruction to leave the European Union and I intend to do so,” she tells us.

Don’t believe a word.

Kobach: Democrats Finally Acknowledge That Voter Fraud Exists

Not so long ago, prominent Democrats were insisting that voter fraud did not exist in the United States. Others conceded that it existed, but that it was so rare as to be irrelevant to the outcome of elections. Liberal media sources like U.S. News scoffed that looking for voter fraud was like going on a “unicorn hunt.”

Notably, in early 2017 then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi mocked President Trump’s claim that voter fraud occurred in the 2016 presidential election. She called his focus on voter fraud “really strange,” adding, “I frankly feel very sad for the president making this claim.” She asked Republicans to join her in declaring that “we have confidence in our system and that we always respect the results of the election.”

Exclusive– Marsha Blackburn: Sundar Pichai ‘Less than Truthful’ about Manipulating Google’s Search Results

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement on Wednesday that Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s congressional testimony was “less than truthful” regarding his statement that Google does not “manually intervene” on any search result.

Breitbart News senior tech reporter Allum Bokhari revealed in an exclusive report on Wednesday that, despite Pichai’s sworn testimony, Google and YouTube use “blacklists” for “controversial YouTube queries” which contain a list of search terms the Silicon Valley giant considers sensitive. In one instance, YouTube downranked pro-life videos from its top ten search results for “abortion.” Further, Bokhari revealed that Google employs “huge teams” dedicated to the manual intervention of its search results, which serves as an apparent contradiction to Pichai’s sworn testimony.

Angel Moms Show Nancy Pelosi’s Office Walls Kept Them Out

Angel families stormed Pelosi’s office Tuesday asking for the Speaker to meet with them and hear their pleas for a wall and border security.

“It’s nice walls in here, all the way, four walls in here,” said angel mom Sabine Durden. Her son Dominic Durden was killed by an illegal alien. Durden asked the staff if she was to go through the secondary office door, would she be arrested. A Pelosi staffer simply told Durden she would ask her not to go through.

Durden then told the staff, “We asked my son’s killer not to and he still did.” – a reference to the foreign national who illegally crossed the U.S. southern border before killing her son. “And Pelosi doesn’t care about that.”

Durden told the group she’d be arrested if she went through the door into Pelosi’s office but wouldn’t because she obeys the law and respects the rules of the office.

No SOTU till government reopens: Pelosi threatens to deplatform Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is demanding President Donald Trump postpone his State of the Union address until after the government reopens, threatening to use her little-known power of invitation to deplatform the president.

In a letter sent on Wednesday, Pelosi requested Trump reschedule his speech until they can pay the Secret Service – part of the Department of Homeland Security, which has gone unfunded since the shutdown began 26 days ago. She used Trump's own Homeland Security secretary's words to twist the knife, quoting Kirstjen Nielsen's insistence that “the full resources of the Federal Government … be brought to bear” for the high-security event -– then finished the job by suggesting Trump submit the speech in writing.

Israeli Museum To Take Down 'McJesus' Statue After Christians Clash With Police

The controversial artwork features McDonald's mascot Ronald McDonald nailed to a cross - something the author views as a touch of consumerism on Christian values. The artist himself, however, asked the museum to withdraw the statue from display after joining a pro-Palestinian movement.

The Haifa Museum of Art has been forced to take down an artwork which offended the country's Arab Christian minority community.

The exhibit called "McJesus", which depicts a crucified Ronald McDonald, will be removed "as soon as possible", Haifa Mayor Einat Kalisch-Rotem said, as quoted by the Haaretz newspaper.

'Asian Trapped in a White Body': Hawaii Rep's Remark Stirs Public Outrage

A spokesman for Ed Case explained that the newly sworn-in congressman was referencing something that his Japanese-American wife says about him, but some accused him of trying to score political points by playing the race card.

Democratic Representative for Hawaii's first district Ed Case faced public backlash criticism for his comments on racial identity, prompting him to apologise.

"I'm an Asian trapped in a white body," Case claimed on Tuesday at a Washington, D.C. event dedicated to newly minted members of Congress with Asian American and Pacific Islander roots.

Outrage as Swedish TV Cuts Word 'Islam' From Saudi Refugee Girl Story

The story of Rahaf Mohammed, an 18-year-old Saudi girl who has become an international media darling for her flight to the West from "persecution", aired by Swedish national broadcaster SVT has made Swedes see red.

In their piece on Rahaf Mohammad, the Saudi refugee girl who claimed to have suffered "abuse" back home due to her non-conformist behaviour, SVT omitted the reference to Islam, triggering many Swedes' ire.

In the interview aired by SVT Aktuellt, Rahaf Mohammed said that she was kept locked up for six months after getting a short haircut and suffered abuse from her brother and her mother. The reason for it, she claimed, is that short haircuts for women are forbidden in Islam, because it makes women look like men.

However, SVT's translation left out the Islam reference completely, with words "Islam" and "haram" ("forbidden" in Arabic) conspicuously absent from the subtitles, despite clearly being uttered by the teen.

Russia's Top Diplomat Lavrov Branded German Foreign Minister at Presser (VIDEO)

A slip of the tongue by a German journalist has “granted” Russia’s foreign minister a new post and lightened up his annual press conference to sum up the results of the country’s foreign policy in 2018.

A journalist from Germany’s public broadcaster ARD garnered a laugh from reporters at the Russian foreign minister’s annual presser by accidentally calling Sergei Lavrov the German foreign minister.

“Our foreign minister Lavro… Lavrov, no…Heiko Maas. We are not there yet!” the reporter began her question in Russian, quickly trying to reverse the damage.

OCASIO-CORTEZ THREATENS: DEMS GOING TO POLITICALLY GANGBANG REPUBLICANS

Socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) evoked some provocative imagery after mocking Republicans, telling them to “enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda.”

The phrase “run train” generally means to “gangbang” someone with several people, in colloquial terms.

The freshman congresswoman made the eyebrow-raising remarks during an extensive interview with The Washington Post, where she asserted that conservative media is turning her into “another boogeyman on the left.”

“What have you got left?” she asked. “I’m six days into the term, and you already used all your ammo. So enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda.”

‘More truth’? Second cache of 9/11 docs released by Dark Overlord hackers

The Dark Overlord hacker group has released decryption keys for a second batch of 9/11 documents, totalling over 7,500 files. Additional document leaks containing “more secrets” and “more truth” have been promised, for a price.
The first batch of the supposed 18,000 documents was made available by the hackers at the weekend, along with a decryption key for ‘layer 1’ of the dump. The documents are believed to have been stolen from insurance companies, law firms and government agencies, and the hackers originally demanded an unspecified bitcoin ransom to keep them unreleased.

After apparently failing to secure the ransom, the group then took bitcoin donations from the public, releasing ‘layer 1’ after collecting $12,000 – but then also releasing ‘layer 2’ on Wednesday despite not meeting its funding target.

So far, no ‘smoking gun’ has emerged detailing conspiracy or government involvement in the terrorist attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this is all a hoax to distract from the grand jury that will hear the evidence of explosives used in the WTC.

The threat of a Brexit coup in Parliament is real – and terrifying

Today’s Sunday Times splash – about a ‘coup’ being plotted by Tory rebels to take over Brexit – looks and feels like it was dreamed up in No. 10. It wasn’t and the story shouldn’t be dismissed because of that. The Speaker’s actions last week have changed the calculations: something previously judged procedurally impossible (for rebels to call the shots in parliament) is now a genuine risk. In my view, it risks the very stability of the government.

The story so far: that Dominic Grieve and Oliver Letwin are seeking a way to seize control of business in the Commons, so that backbench motions take precedence over government motions. This matters because, until last week, a whole load of options were unthinkable. Tory rebels may be frustrated but they could not act on their plans because they could not call them to a vote. Under the Westminster system the government controls the agenda parliamentary agenda. Or did, until John Bercow upended things last week.

Understanding Why the Deep State Had to Take Down General Michael Flynn

The despicable and unethical attack on Flynn immediately after his appointment by Trump was just one element of a shameful Deep State campaign to discredit and destroy the Trump presidency. As Trump’s national security adviser, Flynn had Trump’s ear. He was potentially the Deep State’s worst nightmare. Flynn knows in detail how the Intelligence Community and the FISA courts operate. With a 33-year military career, including heading up the Defense Intelligence Agency, Flynn was an existential threat to outgoing President Obama and his shameless and highly partisan CIA director, John Brennan, who cynically and criminally corrupted the Intelligence Community for political purposes on behalf of Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The Conservative Tree House linked Flynn’s fall from grace to his knowledge of what happened in Benghazi. Flynn knew how they lied and covered up the disaster that cost four American lives, including an ambassador’s.

Billboards are appearing all over Germany making this latest offer. Believe it or not, more than 20,000 refugees vanished when they were going to be deported. This illustrates that politicians should simply NOT be allowed to make unilateral decisions. In this case, Merkel’s decision has impacted ALL of Europe when the rest of Europe had NO opportunity to agree or vote on the issue.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – JAN. 17, 2019: 4 AMERICANS KILLED, 3 INJURED IN ISIS ATTACK IN MANBIJ

On January 16, a suicide bombing attack hit the center of Manbij in the province of Aleppo. According to initial reports, over 25 people were killed or injured in the attack, which also caused casualties among US service members. Minutes after the explosion, a coalition H-92 helicopter landed in Manbij for an evacuation operation.

Later the US military stressed that 2 US service members, a US Defense Department civilian employee and a contractor supporting the department were killed while “conducting a routine patrol” in the area. The names of those killed were not released immediately.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack and revealed that it was carried out by a suicide bomber named “Abu Yasin al-Shami”. According to local sources, al-Shami blew himself up in front of a US-led coalition patrol outside the Prince Restaurant in the center of Manbij.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another reason to think the attack was a false-flag to justify cancelling the withdrawal from Syria.

Norman Finkelstein and Neocon Denial

While a number of mainstream media pundits have acknowledged that the neocons played a major role in bringing about the war on Iraq (though usually without mentioning their connection to Israel or their predominantly Jewish ethnicity), there are stringent critics of Israel and US policy in the Middle East who totally reject this interpretation. One of the most notable of these is Norman Finkelstein, who expounds on his view in his latest book, “Knowing Too Much.” Because I must limit the length of this article, my argumentation must be kept to a minimum. My book, “The Transparent Cabal: The Neoconservative Agenda, War in the Middle East, and the National Interest of Israel,” provides a detailed and extensively-documented account of all the issues covered here.

‘Russiagate’ investigator crowdfunds ‘fact-finding’ trip...to Hawaii

One ‘Russiagate’ researcher wants to crowdfund a trip to “investigate” 2020 Democratic contender Tulsi Gabbard in sunny Hawaii. Some critics say it’s a ploy to grab a free vacation.

Gabbard’s announcement last weekend that she will challenge Donald Trump for the presidency in 2020 united the left and the right in panic. A combat veteran, the Hawaiian congresswoman unveiled a platform focused on foreign policy issues, namely opposition to foreign wars and intervention.

Gabbard had long been an opponent of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as Barack Obama’s air campaign in Syria. A 2017 meeting with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad was enough to convince the establishment that Gabbard was an “Assad sympathizer,” an agent of the Kremlin, and a racist, homophobic, right-wing plant.

How police steal from citizens

In most of the United States, police can seize your property without charging or convicting you of a crime.

It’s called civil asset forfeiture. If it doesn’t sound fair to you, you’re not alone.

But thanks to a bipartisan coalition of grassroots volunteers across the country, lawmakers in at least 15 states are weighing legislation to do away with the practice.

Under civil asset forfeiture, police can and have seized cash, cars and even houses from people who ultimately are found innocent — and pocketed the proceeds. Many police departments depend on such seizures to bolster their budgets, and have fought tooth and nail to defend the practice despite the public outcry. Yet the tide is beginning to turn. In a sea change of public opinion that would have seemed impossible even a decade ago, people of all political stripes are beginning to recognize that there are some serious concerns with this practice — and lawmakers are taking note.

UNITED STATES DOESN’T EVEN MAKE TOP 20 ON GLOBAL DEMOCRACY INDEX

A new index released this week offers a sobering look at how democracy is faring in the United States.

According to the 2018 edition of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index, the U.S. doesn’t even make the list of top 20—its demonstrably “flawed democracy” notching it the 25th spot.

The ranking is based on 60 indicators spanning five interrelated categories: electoral process and pluralism; civil liberties; the functioning of government; political participation; and political culture. Each category gets a 0-10 score, with the final score being the average of those five.

Topping out the index are Norway, Iceland, Sweden, New Zealand, and Denmark. They are each declared “full democracies,” as their scores, all above 9.22, were easily above the 8.2 threshold. With a final score of 7.96, the United States, in contrast, earned the “flawed democracy” label. The country’s highest score was 8.22, which it earned back in 2006 and again in 2008.

CASE STUDY: REUTERS AND US MEDIA URGE OFFENSIVE AGAINST IRAN

A 2013 news investigation of Iranian corruption by Reuters news service has been cited by at least four books published one after another, the most recently in 2018.

It has also been cited by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in 2018 speech. Given the article’s ongoing influence, this article will scrutinize flaws in the reporting techniques and raise reasonable questions about several of its findings. The article will also mention, a piece of important historical context, that was long assumed, but made official in 2013 – the same year the story was published – when the US government released classified documents about its involvement in the overthrow of Iran’s democratically elected leader in 1953 and the establishment of the Shah. The purpose of this article is not to stain the reputation of an entire news agency – but to simply lay out an alternative context for interpreting a single, influential story.

Stunning: Ohr Testimony Reveals Top DOJ Officials Briefed About Steele Before FISA

Three top Senior Justice Department officials, two who are senior prosecutors on Robert Mueller’ Special Counsel, met with Bruce Ohr in the summer of 2016, well before the FBI sought a FISA warrant on a Trump campaign official. Ohr informed the trio of DOJ officials about his close contact with former British Spy Christopher Steele, whose dossier was used as the bulk of evidence to obtain the warrant to spy on Carter Page.

Ohr, who was then the Associate Deputy Attorney General, told members of Congress during his closed-door testimony in August 2018 that he had informed senior officials that he was delivering information he was gathering from Steele and Glenn Simpson, the founder of embattled research firm Fusion GPS.

Rudy Giuliani says Trump didn't collude with Russia but can't say if campaign aides did

Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that he never denied President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign, only that the President himself was not involved in collusion.

In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time," Giuliani, a former New York mayor and Trump's attorney, said he doesn't know if other people in the campaign, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, were working with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential race.
"I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or people in the campaign," Giuliani said.

He added, "I said the President of the United States. There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC."

Guardian all alone as MSM fail to corroborate Assange/Manafort ‘dud’ story

The Guardian’s ‘bombshell’ story that ex-Donald Trump adviser, Paul Manafort, met with Wikileaks Julian Assange is falling apart, as outlets fail to corroborate the claims, some even questioning the paper’s standards.

On November 27, the Guardian splashed with an eye-catching article, claiming that its journalists had seen an Ecuadorian intelligence agency document detailing that Manafort and Assange had met three times in the London Ecuadorian embassy, including during the run-up to the 2016 US Presidential Election.

The piece suggested that "Russians" were also guests at the embassy, though it failed to identify any individuals in question. The article also didn’t include any non-anonymous sources nor did it reproduce, in any capacity, the document in question.

The story didn’t quite have the impact desired, instigating an ongoing debate even among the most ardent members of so-called ‘Resistance.’

Not to mention the fact that they are keeping mum on where our citizens Yulia Skripal and her father [Sergei Skripal] are now. Why are they hiding [them]?” Naryshkin said.

Top 5 additives and drugs BANNED from the food supply in Europe and Russia, but approved by the FDA for Americans to eat

In America, there’s basically only one industry that would prosper from everyone being healthy, and that’s the organic food industry. About a century ago, all food in America was naturally organic because farmers and corporations weren’t using chemical pesticides on the crops, and they weren’t juicing up livestock with drugs. All of that has changed. The biggest source of revenue in America has to do with consumers getting sick from the food and staying sick from the medicine, meanwhile, other developing countries try to help their citizens stay healthy, by banning known toxins and carcinogens from the food and medicine supply.
