Xtremism, Xperiences and X-Man John DeSouza Show Notes 20170606

Xtremism, Xperiences and X-Man John DeSouza

I want to talk today about the insanity we are all experiencing. If you are not experiencing this insanity, then your role is to help those who are. Like the old saying goes: If you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem, don’t be a part of the problem.

Many of us on TFR has discussed this change of frequency and energy. Yes, we all anticipate these changes and we welcome them as we instinctively know that the universe is unfolding as it should. This does not mean the changes are PLEASANT. It is strange how it seems that when you are supposed to be in a different place to achieve your destiny, the elements will open up to you. The environment you are in, will become uncomfortable for you. That can happen because you suddenly find things intolerable, or the people and constructs around you may start to drastically change so much that you will be forced to change your environment. Many of us here at Truth Frequency Radio has been predicting this upheaval. I know I have been warning of it and the proper flow that will occur afterwards.

This has just happened to me recently, and I am in the middle of the upheaval. Many of us are in this upheaval! I won’t tell of other hosts business, but some folks did not see this starting. It wasn’t until Kev of the Kev Baker Show had his heart incident, did we all realize that the change had started. I think we all braced ourselves, then. I know I did, and if it weren’t for that realization, I would have responded differently when my world went sideways. I used to have a terrible temper. Not a quick one, but a terrible one. It took a bit to get me to react, but back then, once my fuse was burnt, there was no stopping my reaction, it was a furious thing to behold, and there was no stopping it. I used to be sooooo devious, and fierce.

Here, decades later, I have been ‘awakened’ and have learned peace. Apparently, those who knew me back in the day, think that I have not only mellowed, but they think I aslo became a push-over. That is not the case. What they didn’t or don’t know is, I have learned that Karma, The Universe, God, what ever it is you call it, is faaaarrr more devious and clever than I am. And to do me wrong, it will be returned to those who have done harm to me, more effectively than I can fashion. In this whole thing, I have done nothing to ‘pay back’ anyone for their misdeeds. Nor will I. To those who were a part of this and may be listening, I am not lifting my hand or tongue against you. I refuse to, your fate is yours and will be handled by the Universe. This is why I kept calm throughout this whole thing. None of you all saw me react to this bad behavior. Very few people witnessed my suffering. As usual TFR folks were helpful and supportive. But as to what people call family and friends? Let me tell all you all something. When someone calls you for help, and they outline what help they need….

THEY ARE NOT ASKING FOR ADVICE! IF I WANTED ADVICE I WOULD SAY, ‘HEY I NEED YOUR ADVICE!’!

If your relation tells you they need a place to live, they need a place to live, not advice as to what shelter to contact, that relation is not asking you to pay for a hotel to stay at for a month. And when your relation asks for said help, don’t call the V.A. Crisis suicide hotline! There are real people, real veterans who need that help, and if you waste the time of the crisis personnel on situations like this, and a person who truly needs that help is not helped and they die as a result, that blood is on your head!

I have been in stuck situations before. I don’t like it and hate finding myself in them. Now, let me tell you all the good news. My step father stepped in to help. He couldn’t help me physically move my stuff, but he called me out of the blue and said: “You have only been asking for help with this for a month now, I don’t know why your family don’t understand that. I am on my way up there. When he saw all my things packed and ready to go. Let’s go get you a car so you can move this.”

He used his contacts and resources to help me. I asked for help, and finally got it. Speaking of which, those of you in the southeast or in South Carolina, and if you are in the market for a used vehicle, TNT Concepts in Anderson South Carolina was so helpful to me. And they deserve great praise for their help. 864-451-0273

I am not the only one going through this tumultuous shift. There are others. I encourage you to support me or Truth Frequency Radio. If you have a business that needs more traffic, you will definitely get that traffic when you sponsor TFR. I get reports from guests that their websites see a lot of traffic after being on my show. There are so many listeners next to their computers ready to buy products that are mentioned during our broadcasts. I am not kidding. Support us so we can continue helping others. That is what we are all doing. That is the fundamental basis of what we do here. We help others. We don’t brag about it, we don’t broadcast that “oh yeah, I helped so-and-so with this dilemna”, we don’t beat our chests with it. Chris and Sheree started this and have helped so many people on their way, many of us are following in their footsteps. AND That is what Truth Frequency Radio is about. Truth is not just a bunch of words strung together to form a picture of a current reality. Truth is a way of life. ACTIONS.

On now to the news!

We have had a heck of a weekend, haven’t we?

Trump pulled out of the Paris Agreement. Let me boil it down for everyone. The Global warming phrase is a lie and has been adjusted to be called ‘climate change’. This ‘treaty’ or ‘agreement’ is basically a tax that nations have to pay. It does nothing to reduce ‘carbon emissions’; except perhaps, to burden the poor with even more taxes until they die. This whole thing was a scam even when Obama signed it, it is a scam today. Trump said no. He has every right to say ‘no’. The MSM who spends millions to send reporters to and fro, to cover this ‘deal’, don’t see the irony it it. You must also know this. ‘Carbon Emissions’ means ALL MAMMALS who exhale, it means humans will have to pay a tax to the world government for emitting carbons. While it is true cars and trucks all emit carbons, and the use of them should be regulated so as to not pollute. But cars and trucks don’t emit the foul chemicals that many factories do. In case many of you hadn’t noticed, America’s factory jobs have gone overseas, why would we be holding the bill for so much tax? Right, because we are seen as a rich country that can afford it.

Decomposing leaves are a surprising source of greenhouse gases

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/06/170605121306.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily%2Ftop_news%2Ftop_science+%28ScienceDaily%3A+Top+Science+News%29

Michigan State University scientists have pinpointed a new source of nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas that’s more potent than carbon dioxide. The culprit?

Tiny bits of decomposing leaves in soil.

This new discovery is featured in the current issue of Nature Geoscience, could help refine nitrous oxide emission predictions as well as guide future agriculture and soil management practices.

“Most nitrous oxide is produced within teaspoon-sized volumes of soil, and these so-called hot spots can emit a lot of nitrous oxide quickly,” said Sasha Kravchenko, MSU plant, soil and microbial scientist and lead author of the study. “But the reason for occurrence of these hot spots has mystified soil microbiologists since it was discovered several decades ago.”

Part of the vexation was due, in part, to scientists looking at larger spatial scales. It’s difficult to study and label an entire field as a source of greenhouse gas emissions when the source is grams of soil harboring decomposing leaves. Changing the view from binoculars to microscopes will help improve N2O emission predictions, which traditionally are about 50 percent accurate, at best. Nitrous oxide’s global warming potential is 300 times greater than carbon dioxide, and emissions are largely driven by agricultural practices.

“This work sheds new light on what drives emissions of nitrous oxide from productive farmlands,” said John Schade, a program director for the National Science Foundation’s Long-Term Ecological Research program, which co-funded the research with NSF’s earth sciences division. “We need studies like this to guide the creation of sustainable agricultural practices necessary to feed a growing human population with minimal environmental impact.”

To unlock the secrets of these N2O hotspots, Kravchenko and her team took soil samples from MSU’s Kellogg Biological Station Long-term Ecological Research site. Then in partnership with scientists from the University of Chicago at Argonne National Laboratory, they examined the samples at Argonne’s synchrotron scanning facilities, a much more powerful version of a medical CT scanner. The powerful X-ray scanner penetrated the soil and allowed the team to accurately characterize the environments where N2O is produced and emitted.

“We found that hotspot emissions happen only when large soil pores are present,” Kravchenko said. “The leaf particles act as tiny sponges in soil, soaking up water from large pores to create a micro-habitat perfect for the bacteria that produce nitrous oxide.”

Not as much N2O is produced in areas where smaller pores are present. Small pores, such as in clay soils, hold water more tightly so that it can’t be soaked up by the leaf particles. Without additional moisture, the bacteria aren’t able to produce as much nitrous oxide. Small pores also make it harder for the gas produced to leave the soil before being consumed by other bacteria.

“This study looked at the geometry of pores in soils as a key variable that affects how nitrogen moves through those soils,” said Enriqueta Barrera, program director in NSF’s earth sciences division. “Knowing this information will lead to new ways of reducing the emission of nitrous oxide from agricultural soils.”

More specifically, future research will review which plant leaves contribute to higher N2O emissions. Plants with more nitrogen in their leaves, such as soybeans, will more than likely give off more N2O as their leaves decompose. Researchers also will look at leaf and root characteristics and see how they influence emissions.

Social media crisis management

I am so thankful for the news tip! https://twitter.com/Zoompad for Jesus! on twitter, here is your shoutout! If you have a news tip, send it to me at truthfrequencynews@gmail.com or if you follow me on twitter you can send me a news tip by tweeting to me: https://twitter.com/TruthFrqncyNews or Elizabeth McCabe on Facebook.

http://www.crisis-solutions.com/simulations-and-exercises/social-media-crisis-management/

Social media, digital media, the new media, call it what you will, has the unique ability to break and make stories.

Now that just about everyone has a smart phone it’s not surprising that crises often arise and are then amplified by social media. And as those who work in crisis management know, an early presence by an organization in crisis is essential as it shows the organisation is aware of the problem and has a plan in place to solve it. Social media is the perfect platform to disseminate messages to as wide an audience as possible.

If you don’t understand Twitter and other social media platforms, you are missing a major part of the crisis management jigsaw.

Part of that is understanding how social media works; it’s forced change on communications professionals in many ways.

THE CHANGING FACE OF DIGITAL COMMUNICATION

In days gone by it was a case of we speak and you listen, with PR departments putting out press releases which were then picked up by the press who acted as a conduit transmitting messages to the wider public.

It doesn’t work like that anymore – it’s no longer top down. In the past we communicated to our audiences; now, because of digital media, we must communicate with our audiences – it’s a two-way street. Above all we must listen to what individuals are saying about our organisation and, if we have the resources, respond accordingly.

SOCIAL MEDIA CRISIS MANAGEMENT UPS AND DOWNS

The upside

It allows you an immediate voice and presence. It proves you’re aware of the situation and are doing something about it – at the start of a crisis, update early and often; create your own #hashtags

It can act as an early warning system – monitoring is essential as crises often surface on social

It lets you see how your mitigation efforts are playing in a public forum.

Helps track the progress of recovery.

The downside

Some segments of society don’t use social media, so your messages may not reach an intended audience – think hi tech and low tech when selecting your message channels. Sometimes a megaphone is more effective than a smart phone

Information sourced from social can be inaccurate. A lot of people (to put it mildly) aren’t telling the truth. Hoaxes and trolls are everywhere.

It requires staff to monitor and create effective digital messages – don’t start using social media for the first time in the teeth of an incident

It can fan the flames of negative opinion aimed at your organisation.

SOCIAL MEDIA CRISIS MANAGEMENT PLANNING

As companies rely more and more on social media for marketing, crisis managers need to help companies disentangle marketing social media from crisis social media.

Effective social media crisis management requires an investment in time to understand how social works and above all a crisis social media plan to combat a social media crisis. Crisis Solutions has the unique ability to help you write a crisis social media plan and then test it during a social media crisis simulation.

Notice there are no Anti-Pollute treaties. Notice there are no “Hey let’s pick up all the trash in the world and in the oceans, and recycle it” treaties. You know why? Because all countries, organizations, and corporations, would be responsible for cleaning up their messes.

Fake Sean Spicer Twitter Account Sends Journalists, Democrats On Run Around

http://dailycaller.com/2017/06/05/fake-sean-spicer-twitter-account-sends-journalists-democrats-on-run-around/?utm_campaign=atdailycaller&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social

Many main stream news outlets, well known journalists, and a number of Democrats have fallen for a parody twitter account. The account is supposed to mimic White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, but many think the tweets are real.

The account Sean Spicier has been taking heat from many democrats, as they believe they are tweeting at the actual White House press secretary. Each tweet has hundreds of hostile responses.

Democrats are often made fun of for tweeting at the fake account with their opposing views.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Sean Spicier for comment, but his Twitter activity has so far left him fully engaged.

This start-up is offering $8,000 blood transfusions from teens to people who want to fight aging

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/31/blood-transfusions-from-teenagers-start-up-charging-8000-apiece.html

A company called Ambrosia has about 100 customers who are paying $8,000 for a transfusion of young blood.

The scientific research is far from definitive.

It might sound like science fiction, or a recent episode of “Silicon Valley,” but a start-up called Ambrosia is charging $8,000 for blood transfusions from young people.

About 100 people have signed up to receive an infusion, founder Dr. Jesse Karmazin said Wednesday at the Code Conference.

Anyone over age 35 can become an Ambrosia customer, said Karmazin, but most of the early adopters tend to be of retirement age. He also stressed that it’s a range of people, and not just Bay Area technologists, who have signed up.

The donated blood typically comes from teenagers, although anyone under age 25 is eligible. The company buys its supply from blood banks, which also sell blood to pharmaceutical companies. So high-schoolers donating their blood are not aware that it might be used on healthy adults.

Speaking to a roomful of technologists, Karmazin explained that the company does not claim that it can cure aging. Instead, he’s hoping to recruit hundreds more people to research whether the transfusions can help fight particular symptoms associated with aging. Traditionally, biological aging hasn’t been treated as a disease, which makes it challenging to study.

Karmazin said those who have signed up have seen some positive benefits and haven’t reported any negative ones. Blood transfusions come with a variety of risks, including allergic reactions.
Karmazin started the company after reviewing research into whether injecting older mice with the plasma portion of young ones can improve memory. Other so-called parabiosis studies went a step further in connecting older and younger animals so that their blood mingles.

These studies are far from definitive, and scientists have spoken out about the ethics of such a study, which they see as taking advantage of the public’s excitement and lacking much evidence. But the concept has seen a recent resurgence in interest because well-known Silicon Valley investors like Peter Thiel have spoken out about its promise.

But that does not mean Thiel gets teenage blood transfusions, said Karmazin, a graduate of Stanford Medical School. Karmazin stressed that Thiel is not an Ambroisa customer — and to his knowledge, Ambrosia is the only U.S. company on the market.

“Of course, it’s possible he could have gone abroad,” Karmazin shrugged. “But I haven’t heard anything about that.”

Thiel didn’t immediately reply to a CNBC request for comment.

Ok, now for the elephant in the room.

The Manchester attack and then the London attack. Let us get something clear. Back in the 80s we have FarmAid and all these concerts to help end world hunger. Did it work? No. Now we have concerts after all these terror attacks. What in the world are these people thinking?! In the old days, when an act of war or terror occurred, the response was an armed response. And it was most effective when the counterattack happened on the guilty party. Today we have a terror attack and some diva throws a concert, and the nation that was assaulted, sends military after a country already bombed to death that had nothing to do with the assault. WHAT THE HELL is going on here? All they are doing is rewarding the terrorists be immortalizing the terror attacks. Am I the only one who is seeing this pattern? Hello?

Let me explain something to you all. You need to arm yourselves. Every one of you. Find courses online on how to make anything a weapon, for those of you who are unable to get guns (and now, knives) figure it out. The cops in London RAN AWAY from the terrorists with knives! I am sure that everyone still is able to buy entrenching tools, they are little metal shovels that you go camping with. They are collapsable. And they are fantastic weapons without registration! Quit lollygagging around and get the damn thing. Ladies, you can carry them in your purse. For God’s sake, quit depending on the so-called authorities! Remember the old spy games, and the umbrellas that are secret weapons? Start inventing stuff people.

Americans, get armed, get practiced, get ammo, get your crap together! So you are a housewife whose occupation is home and child care? Fine, you best get cast iron skillets. Practice holding them and using them as sheilds for knife attacks. Practice using them in swinging motions in such a way to ward off an intruder. They want us weak and feable, let them think we are, but secretly, we have weapons. Got a lighter and a can of wasp spray or any distance type aerosol? You have an instant flame thrower. Get your crap together! Gone are the days of having peace. They are gone. Sorry, but that is the truth. Peace does not mean absence of conflict, Peace is the presence of Justice.

Justice.

Just as the dude comes in the door after you,

you

knock

his

ass

out! That is Justice! And that is Peace!

How Facebook’s tentacles reach further than you think

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/39947942

Facebook’s collection of data makes it one of the most influential organisations in the world. Share Lab wanted to look “under the bonnet” at the tech giant’s algorithms and connections to better understand the social structure and power relations within the company.

A couple of years ago, Vladan Joler and his brainy friends in Belgrade began investigating the inner workings of one of the world’s most powerful corporations.

The team, which includes experts in cyber-forensic analysis and data visualisation, had already looked into what he calls “different forms of invisible infrastructures” behind Serbia’s internet service providers.

But Mr Joler and his friends, now working under a project called Share Lab, had their sights set on a bigger target.

“If Facebook were a country, it would be bigger than China,” says Mr Joler, whose day job is as a professor at Serbia’s Novi Sad University.

He reels off the familiar, but still staggering, numbers: the barely teenage Silicon Valley firm stores some 300 petabytes of data, boasts almost two billion users, and raked in almost $28bn (£22bn) in revenues in 2016 alone.

And yet, Mr Joler argues, we know next to nothing about what goes on under the bonnet – despite the fact that we, as users, are providing most of the fuel – for free.

“All of us, when we are uploading something, when we are tagging people, when we are commenting, we are basically working for Facebook,” he says.

The data our interactions provide feeds the complex algorithms that power the social media site, where, as Mr Joler puts it, our behaviour is transformed into a product.

Trying to untangle that largely hidden process proved to be a mammoth task.

“We tried to map all the inputs, the fields in which we interact with Facebook, and the outcome,” he says.

“We mapped likes, shares, search, update status, adding photos, friends, names, everything our devices are saying about us, all the permissions we are giving to Facebook via apps, such as phone status, wifi connection and the ability to record audio.”

All of this research provided only a fraction of the full picture. So the team looked into Facebook’s acquisitions, and scoured its myriad patent filings.

The results were astonishing.

Visually arresting flow charts that take hours to absorb fully, but which show how the data we give Facebook is used to calculate our ethnic affinity (Facebook’s term), sexual orientation, political affiliation, social class, travel schedule and much more.

Image caption

Share Lab presents its information in minutely detailed tables and flow charts

One map shows how everything – from the links we post on Facebook, to the pages we like, to our online behaviour in many other corners of cyber-space that are owned or interact with the company (Instagram, WhatsApp or sites that merely use your Facebook log-in) – could all be entering a giant algorithmic process.

And that process allows Facebook to target users with terrifying accuracy, with the ability to determine whether they like Korean food, the length of their commute to work, or their baby’s age.

Another map details the permissions many of us willingly give Facebook via its many smartphone apps, including the ability to read all text messages, download files without permission, and access our precise location.

Individually, these are powerful tools; combined they amount to a data collection engine that, Mr Joler argues, is ripe for exploitation.

“If you think just about cookies, just about mobile phone permissions, or just about the retention of metadata – each of those things, from the perspective of data analysis, are really intrusive.”

Facebook has for years asserted that data privacy and the security of its operations are paramount. Facebook data, for example, cannot be used by developers to create surveillance tools and the firm says it complies with privacy protection laws in all countries. Thousands of new staff have been recruited to police its content.

Mr Joler, though, while admitting that his research made him a little paranoid about the information that was being harvested, is more worried about the longer term.

The data will remain in the hands of one company. Even if its current leaders are responsible and trustworthy, what about those in charge in 20 years?

Analysts say Share Lab’s work is valuable and impressive. “It’s probably the most comprehensive work mapping Facebook that I’ve ever seen,” says Dr Julia Powles, an expert in technology law and policy at Cornell Tech.

“[The research] shows in cold and calculated terms how much we are giving away for the value of being able to communicate with your mates,” she says.

The scale of Facebook’s reach can be stated in raw numbers – but Share Lab’s maps make it visceral, in a way that drawing parallels cannot.

“We haven’t really got appropriate historical analogies for the tech giants,” explains Dr Powles. Their powers, she continues, extend “far beyond” the likes of the East India Company and monopolies of old, such as Standard Oil.

And while many may consider the objectives of Mark Zuckerberg’s empire to be rather benign, its outcomes are not always so.

Facebook, argues Dr Powles, “plays to our base psychological impulses” by valuing popularity above all else.

Image caption

Experts say there are no historical analogies for the power that today’s tech giants hold

Not that she expects Share Lab’s research to lead to a mass Facebook exodus, or a dramatic increase in the scrutiny of tech titans.

“What is most striking is the sense of resignation, the impotence of regulation, the lack of options, the public apathy,” says Dr Powles. “What an extraordinary situation for an entity that has power over information – there is no greater power really.”

It is this extraordinary dominance that the Share Lab team set out to illustrate. But Mr Joler is quick to point out that even their grand maps cannot provide an accurate picture of the social media giant’s capabilities.

There is no guarantee, for example, that there are not many other algorithms at work that are still heavily guarded trade secrets.

However, Mr Joler argues, “it is still the one and only map that exists” of one of the greatest forces shaping our world today.

Air Pollution Linked To Measles Incidence, Proving Immune Status Is Vital In Disease Risk

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/air-pollution-linked-measles-incidence-proving-immune-status-vital-disease-risk

The idea that measles virus is solely responsible for causing measles infection, and that vaccination alone is the way to prevent it, has been undermined by a new study Chinese air pollution study.

A new study published in the journal Environmental Research reveals that exposure to air pollution is significantly associated with measles incidence in China. This is consistent with the view that infection is not solely determined by exposure to a virus particle but also involves the immune status of the subject which depends on various nutritional and environmental factors, including the immunosuppressive function of air pollution. In other words, it’s not just the “germ” alone but the terrain that determines disease.

In the new study titled, “Is short-term exposure to ambient fine particles associated with measles incidence in China? A multi-city study,” Chinese researchers examined the relationship between short-term exposure to ambient particles with a diameter of less than ≤2.5µm (i.e. 2.5 microns thick) and measles incidence in China. They noted that rapid economic development has resulted in “severe particulate matter (PM) air pollution.”

Their method was to collect data on the daily number of new measles cases and concentrations of ambient particles (≤2.5µm) from 21 cities in China between October 2013 and December 2014 and to analyze data to ascertain the effects at the national scale.

The results demonstrated a statistically significant association between increase in the number of ambient particles and measles incidence, leading them to conclude: “We provide new evidence that measles incidence is associated with exposure to ambient PM2.5 in China. Effective policies to reduce air pollution may also reduce measles incidence.”

As you may know from my previous writings, the concept that the transmissability and pathogenicity of enveloped viruses like measles don’t depend on host factors is untenable when you consider that, as was only just discovered for influenza three years ago, these viruses take from host proteins and lipids their viral particle envelopes. In other words, influenza and measles would not exist and be infective if it were not for them hijacking biosynthetic pathways within host cells and then using materials taken from these host cells to form themselves.

Clearly, therefore, it is not appropriate to envision measles as a “deadly virus,” a singular actor in the drama of infectitious disease, for this reason alone.

Why Is This Study Important?

This study is important for a number of reasons. First, it undermines the narrative maintained by the medical orthodoxy that measles virus alone is capable of inducing disease. By attributing this power to an invisible particle barely detectable by an electron microscope, instead of taking into account the multitude of preventable or mitigable factors linked to nutrition, lifestyle, and environmental exposures, the corollary myth that vaccines alone confer bona fide protection against infection, the agenda of universal vaccination and global eradication programs can continue unabated.

Second, by drawing attention to factors beyond the intrinsic pathogenicity of measles virus itself, it helps to explain why the Chinese measles eradication programs are notoriously ineffective at producing the expected outcome. The Chinese have one of the most vaccination compliant populations in the world due to the fact that it is mandatory there, yet they have had over 700 measles outbreaks from 2009 and 2012 alone. We explored this in greater detail in our article: Why Is China Having Measles Outbreaks When 99% Are Vaccinated?

Clearly, then, if toxicant exposure is identified as a key factor in disease causation, the vaccines themselves become highly suspect as a cause of the very disease they are designed to prevent because they often contain inordinately high amounts of immunosuppressive chemicals and metals. Also, given that there is a possibility that chemical exposure to things like DDT were historically misdiagnosed as caused by viruses, this latest study brings back into awareness the reality that viruses alone can not account for explaining the causality of most diseases which are often mislabled as “vaccine preventable.”

One last thing that should be discussed is the importance of acknowledging that the present-day fear surrounding measles infection is highly irrational. Excluding rare exceptions, measles is not only a benign childhood disease, but its health benefits have been extensively documented in the biomedical literature. And this extends to a wide range of viruses, together which comprise the virome, an integral and health-promoting component of the human microbiome. Moreover, when one considers that the measles vaccine is responsible for at least 100 deaths a year versus the less than 10 deaths caused by measles in the U.S. since 2003, the risk/benefit ratio, therefore, is clearly biased towards not vaccinating.

Vaccines get all the glory, but most plumbers will tell you that it was water infrastructure – sewage systems and clean water – that eradicated disease, and they’re right.

Disease Before Plumbing

After the fall of the Roman Empire, Europeans despised all things Roman, including bathing. There was a widespread belief that getting wet caused illness. This contempt and fear of bathing persisted through the Dark Ages.

Some Europeans defied local customs by bathing, but this was usually done over great protest. When Queen Elizabeth bathed, her servants panicked, fearing she would become ill and die.

This resistance to bathing was brought across the Atlantic to America, influencing habits all the way into the 1800s. In 1835, Philadelphia almost passed an ordinance forbidding wintertime bathing. Ten years later, Boston did outlaw bathing, except by medical directive. (Though this law was not widely enforced, it does illustrate the American resistance to bathing as late as the mid 1800s.)

How Plumbing Eradicated Disease

Before plumbing was widely used, indoor facilities consisted of a washstand and a washbowl, a pitcher, and a chamber pot or commode. Human waste was thrown into the street or anywhere convenient.

This total lack of sanitation in urban areas filled with rats and other vermin provided the perfect environment to spread disease. The Black Plague alone killed 75 million – 200 million people – including 1/3 of Europe’s population. Though this disease is not entirely eradicated, human infection has become a rare occurrence. The last plague epidemic in America was in the early 1900’s.

Polio and Plumbing

Polio thrives in fecal matter and is easily transmitted through human waste. Plumbing and water sanitation in India is way behind the rest of the industrialized world. In areas where sanitation and hygiene are good, polio is rare. In areas where sanitation and hygiene are poor, the disease can spread rapidly.

Immunization efforts have received a lot of publicity and have garnered most of the credit for India being declared “polio free” by the World Health Organization. As recently as 2009, India reported 762 cases of polio, and at that time, these numbers made India the polio capital of the world. In 2014, there are currently no “official” documented cases of polio, but without proper sanitation there is no way this can last.

A Polio Breeding Ground

India is the second most populous nation in the world, with an estimated population of 1.2 billion. Currently, 780 million Indians do not have a toilet; 96 million Indians do not have access to clean drinking water. In rural areas, open defecation is still more common than attempting to dispose of human waste in a more sanitary fashion, such as burying it.

There have been some efforts to improve sanitation, but they pale in comparison to the extensive efforts to vaccinate Indians. Over 9 billion has been spent in this vaccination public health campaign. In some parts of India, children have received as many as 30 doses of the oral polio vaccine before their fifth birthday. Bill Gates, the World Health Organization, and GAVI have ardently been pushing vaccines on people who still don’t have access to clean drinking water or the sanitary means to dispose of human waste.

They Say Tomato, I say Tomatoe

The current polio vaccine campaign in India is highly controversial due to the high rate of vaccine injury and death. There were 53,000 cases of NPAFP, a non-polio acute flaccid paralysis, among those vaccinated. NPAFP is a disease that is clinically indistinguishable from polio and twice as deadly that is caused by the live, weakened, polio viruses in the vaccine. Incidences of the disease rose and fell with the number of doses of the vaccine administered. To call this disease anything other than polio is semantic subterfuge, a whitewash for Big Pharma’s image.

In the past 13 months, India has reported 53,563 cases of NPAFP at a national rate of 12 per 100,000 children—way above the global benchmark set by WHO of 2 per 100,000.” – Jan, 13 2014 quote from LiveMint Newpaper, the second largest business newspaper in India.

It would be less expensive in human cost and far more effective to improve India’s water infrastructure, improving India’s sanitation and hygiene.

London England and Cholera

In the 1800’s the European infant mortality rate was very high, from 25% to 70%. In the early-to-mid 1800s, London had little in the way of water infrastructure. The majority of people used town pumps and communal wells to get their drinking water. Waste disposal was far from adequate. Most Londoners dumped raw sewage and animal wastes into open pits known as “cesspools” or directly into the Thames River. Unfortunately, the Thames River was also the source of drinking water for many Londoners.

Cholera spreads easily through contaminated water and food and kills very quickly; it often proves fatal within hours of the first symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea.

In 1854, yet another outbreak struck London, claiming the lives of tens of thousands of Europeans. In Soho, a suburb of London, there were more than 500 fatal cases of cholera in ten days.

Dr. John Snow, who lived near Soho, was able to directly investigate what was causing the outbreak. Five years earlier, Dr. Snow had written an article about what he believed caused cholera. It was in the water, he argued. This idea flew in the face of the “wisdom” of his time. In the 1850s, doctors believed that bad vapors, or a “miasma in the atmosphere” caused disease. Dr. Snow dared to believe something different, to try something different, believing he might see different results.

Dr. John Snow Traced Cholera To Its Source

Dr. Snow traced the cholera outbreak to the Broad Street pump. He persuaded the town officials to remove the pump handle, and the cholera outbreak abruptly ended. Some time later, the outbreak was traced back to a woman cleaning a dirty diaper in the well.

Correction 3/1/17: 

According to Wayne W. LaMorte, MD, PhD, MPH of Boston University School of Public Health, the mother had emptied the baby’s diarrhea into the cesspool next to the well, and the cesspool’s wall was decayed, so the sewage was seeping into the well.” – Thanks Heather!

Though it took some time, Dr. Snow convinced the authorities that fecal matter was contaminating the water supply. Today Dr. John Snow is widely regarded as the father of epidemiology.

Refugee Camps, Dysentery Epidemic, and Poor Sanitation

The Rwandan refugee camps set up in Zaire in 1994 struggled with outbreaks of dysentery. Sanitation was poor; the refugees defecated openly in common areas. Human waste built up in the same areas where the refugees drew water that was used for cooking and drinking. Heavy rain flooded the area and dysentery became epidemic, at its peak it was killing 2,000 people a day.

Refugee camps have always been a haven for diseases related to poor sanitation. Once U.S. and UN officials brought in purified water and encouraged people to use outhouses and latrines for defecation, the incidences of dysentery fell.

Chicago’s Population Grew from 350 in 1835 to More than 60,000 by 1850

The industrial revolution drove rapid population growth. Chicago’s water infrastructure wasn’t designed to handle such a rapid rise in population. Chicago was dealing with many different diseases, but it had especially high rates of typhoid fever. The source of the rapid increase in disease was traced to the city’s water and sanitation.

The majority of the city’s sewage was directed to the Chicago River, which flowed right back into Lake Michigan, which provided the city’s drinking water. This, of course, contaminated Chicago’s drinking water and created a cycle of disease.

It took many years to solve the problem, but in the early 1900s Chicago modernized their water infrastructure. They reversed the flow of several rivers and streams, and as a result, typhoid fever and all other infectious diseases plummeted.

Conclusion

Sanitation prevents disease by removing the cause of disease transmission, but this is not new information. Moses taught sanitation. He made many rules for encampments. The Greeks and the Romans created elaborate systems of aqueducts, baths, and drainage. When the Roman Empire crumbled, sanitation became a lost art. Civilization paid the price: plague after plague struck areas of dense population.

Smallpox continued to infect Europe’s population until plumbing infrastructure became commonplace. Although, sanitation ended this disease, the smallpox vaccine takes the credit.

When most of us think of a conscientious objector, we think of someone who refused military service for moral or religious reasons. In the 1800s, the term came into use for someone who refused vaccinations for their children. There was a great deal of resistance to the smallpox vaccine. Some statistics placed fatalities from the vaccine as high as 1 in 200

In modern times, objections to vaccines are mounting. Refusing to vaccinate is as controversial today as it was when the first vaccines were forced on British citizens almost 200 years ago.

Vaccines often contain toxins like aluminum and mercury, and many vaccines contain aborted fetal tissues. The reality of vaccine injury and death is making the news, though the propaganda and out and out lies from pharmaceutical companies cause a polarized division between those who are pro vaccine and those who are against.

If you are reading this, you probably have access to running water and a working toilet. If you choose to forego vaccines for yourself or your children, bear in mind that you will need additional protection to avoid contracting illnesses. Exercise, sleep, stress management, and a truly healthy diet are all essential for an immune system to work at optimal efficiency.

While the medical professionals and the pharmaceutical companies are quick to take credit for our increased life expectancy, in truth, they are not the heroes. Have you thanked a plumber lately?

Meet One Marine Still Fighting Chronic Pain and the VA

http://nationalpainreport.com/meet-one-marine-still-fighting-chronic-pain-and-the-va-8833661.html

In a column published on the National Pain Report, retired pharmacist Steve Ariens and I posed the question: “Is the Chronic Patient Giving Up?”

Well, you are about to meet (again) one who has not.

51-year old Robert Rose is a retired Marine (medical discharge in 1994) who has been fighting his VA—The Mountain Home VA Center in Johnson City, Tennessee—two doctors (Dr. Edwards and Dr. Vernon) and his Congressional representatives.

His request is simple—treat my pain—pain that was brought on by compressed spinal vertebrae, bad knees, hips and ankles. All the injuries are the result of Rose’s service to the country which ended in 1994 when the Marines medically discharged the man because, well, he was broken.

He has received nothing for his pain since December 29th and takes low level Motrin and Tylenol to address the pain—but they don’t address much, he said.

Because he’s a Marine, he’s a fighter—and has been inundating the VA, the doctors, Congressional representatives and the media with letters about his plight—with little response.

His latest one caught our attention and I asked if he would be ok with republishing it. The self-effacing Rose said it was ok, as long we checked the punctuation.

Deal, we said.

By the way, before we publish the letter, one thing Rose told us was especially troubling. When I explained to him that we were doing this story following our own question about whether the chronic pain patient was giving up—he said that veterans he works with through social media indeed are in tough shape—they don’t feel like anyone is watching out for them and says that he wishes the VA would do a statistical analysis of veterans who are committing suicide.

Chilling.

Here’s his letter written after his last interaction with the VA—an interaction you will read that left him frustrated.

Subject: Still being punished…. LMAO….

RAGE!!! — It is funny but I knew what was going to happen at today’s appointment with my PCP. I even sent him an email requesting the pain management doctor be present if he was going to be unable to proscribe something for pain. That’s the one who promised to take personal interest in my case and see me after the big meeting back in March and I haven’t seen since.

Why was I expecting something for pain? Simple, the PCP had been promising since March 20 that once the MRIs first ordered in October 2016 for my back were accomplished, he would treat the pain. He also has stated it was not in his powers to prescribe pain medications as it had to go through pain management which is hilarious considering a nurse practitioner with no special training other than Family Medicine had been prescribing those pain meds up until October when they adopted the new policy. So she has more power than a full-fledged medical doctor!!! LOL

Anyhow he can’t prescribe anything for my back. The pain management doctor apparently was still too busy to see me. And now, I have to go through additional tests which I have already been through including the nerve conduction tests (the needles are not so bad on the left side which is mostly numb; not as much on the right). I also get another multi-discipline meeting but the good news is going to amaze everyone… I now suffer from fibromyalgia instead of from damage to my spine!!! AND remember the CAT scan in November 2016 revealed damage to T9 in my back – the reason it has been hard to breath and documented since 1991? Well the new MRIs from last week show that it is HEALED!!! I am a walking miracle to modern medicine!!! Everything in the MRIs reveal minor stenosis, minor degenerative disk disease, minor arthritis and oh yeah the bulging disks in the cervical and thoracic are both minor nothing to be concerned about it… SMH… The only thing he did mention I wasn’t expecting is that T-8 is chipped but again it is no big deal which would not cause the problems I am experiencing… LMAO

Baby boxes’ shouldn’t be legalized in Russia, says Health Ministry

https://www.rt.com/politics/389438-health-ministry-opposes-legalization-of/

The Russian Health Ministry will not back the idea of so-called ‘baby boxes,’ special containers installed at hospitals where parents can abandon children anonymously and in relatively safe conditions, a representative has said.

We have decided not to support this initiative and the Education Ministry, the Labor Ministry and the Ministry of Justice have joined us in this decision,” the director of the Health Ministry’s Department for Children’s health and Childbirth, Elena Baibarina, said at a lower house roundtable session.

Russia’s human rights ombudsman, Tatyana Moskalkova, said on Tuesday however that she was strongly against the ban on baby boxes.

I think that anything that can potentially save lives or minimize harm connected with the fact that some families or mothers sometimes abandon their children has the right to exist,” she said.

Baby boxes are a chance to keep babies alive, keep them in good health and maintain a chance of their future adoption,” Moskalkova said.

In March this year, a group of Russian MPs drafted a bill giving regional authorities the power to decide whether baby boxes should be legal. However, the bill also states that the Health Ministry should develop unified requirements for the facilities and the rules of their use. The bill has not yet been considered by the State Duma, but received approval from the Committee on Federation and Local Governance.

Baby boxes appeared in several Russian regions in about 2011. The activists who launched the initiative claimed they were saving infants from health dangers that appear when parents simply leave them in public places or near hospitals and orphanages.

A legislative ban on baby boxes was proposed in August 2015 by lawmakers from the nationalist party LDPR. This draft ordered fines and correctional labor both for those who set up the facilities and for the parents who use them. The sponsors of the bill also explained that, in their view, baby boxes encouraged parents to give up their children by offering a simple and safe way to do so. Senator Elena Mizulina presented a similar motion in mid-2016.

On the other hand, Senator Konstantin Dobrynin from Arkhangelsk Region drafted a bill that would legalize baby boxes and detail state requirements for such facilities and the personnel who run them. He pointed out that wider use of baby boxes could prevent cases in which mothers either kill their unwanted newborns or leave them in the street, potentially leading to their deaths.

Currently baby boxes are banned in nine Russian regions. Two regions have officially recognized the initiative as legal, while in one region they remain in a gray area of the law. Mass media estimate the overall number of baby boxes across the country at about 60.

The first time in a while I am able to refer to the WaPo article as it has documents and sources in it.

The labels said ‘organic.’ But these massive imports of corn and soybeans weren’t.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/the-labels-said-organic-but-these-massive-imports-of-corn-and-soybeans-werent/2017/05/12/6d165984-2b76-11e7-a616-d7c8a68c1a66_story.html?utm_term=.e7b3cccd576b

A shipment of 36 million pounds of soybeans sailed late last year from Ukraine to Turkey to California. Along the way, it underwent a remarkable transformation.

The cargo began as ordinary soybeans, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post. Like ordinary soybeans, they were fumigated with a pesticide. They were priced like ordinary soybeans, too.

But by the time the 600-foot cargo ship carrying them to Stockton, Calif., arrived in December, the soybeans had been labeled “organic,” according to receipts, invoices and other shipping records. That switch — the addition of the “USDA Organic” designation — boosted their value by approximately $4 million, creating a windfall for at least one company in the supply chain.

After being contacted by The Post, the broker for the soybeans, Annapolis-based Global Natural, emailed a statement saying it may have been “provided with false certification documents” regarding some grain shipments from Eastern Europe. About 21 million pounds of the soybeans have already been distributed to customers.

The multimillion-dollar metamorphosis of the soybeans, as well as two other similar grain shipments in the past year examined by The Post, demonstrate weaknesses in the way that the United States ensures that what is sold as “USDA Organic” is really organic.

The three shipments, each involving millions of pounds of “organic” corn or soybeans, were large enough to constitute a meaningful proportion of the U.S. supply of those commodities. All three were presented as organic, despite evidence to the contrary. And all three hailed from Turkey, now one of the largest exporters of organic products to the United States, according to Foreign Agricultural Service statistics.

Agriculture Department officials said that they are investigating fraudulent organic grain shipments. But the agency declined to identify any of the firms or shipments involved.

We are continuing the investigation based on the evidence received,” it said in a statement.

The imported corn and soybean shipments examined by The Post were largely destined to become animal feed and enter the supply chain for some of the largest organic food industries. Organic eggs, organic milk, organic chicken and organic beef are supposed to come from animals that consume organic feed, an added expense for farmers that contributes to the higher consumer prices on those items.

While most food sold as “USDA Organic” is grown in the United States, at least half of some organic commodities — corn, soybeans and coffee — come from overseas, from as many as 100 countries.

USDA officials say that their system for guarding against fraud is robust.

Under USDA rules, a company importing an organic product must verify that it has come from a supplier that has a “USDA Organic” certificate. It must keep receipts and invoices. But it need not trace the product back to the farm. Some importers, aware of the possibility of fraud, request extra documentation. But others do not.

Regardless of where organics come from, critics say, the system suffers from multiple weaknesses in enforcement: Farmers hire their own inspection companies; most inspections are announced days or weeks in advance and lack the element of surprise; and testing for pesticides is the exception rather than the rule.

These vulnerabilities are magnified with imported products, which often involve more middlemen, each of whom could profit by relabeling conventional goods as “organic.” The temptation could be substantial, too: Products with a “USDA Organic” label routinely sell for twice the price of their conventional counterparts.

In recent years, even as the amount of organic corn and soybeans imported to the United States has more than tripled, the USDA has not issued any major sanctions for the import of fraudulent grain, U.S. farmers said.

The U.S. market is the easiest for potentially fraudulent organic products to penetrate because the chances of getting caught here are not very high,” said John Bobbe, executive director of the Organic Farmers’ Agency for Relationship Marketing, or OFARM, a farmer cooperative. In Europe and Canada, he said, import rules for organics are much stricter.

Moreover, even when the USDA has responded to complaints of questionable imports, action has come too late to prevent the products from reaching consumers.

Four months after the soybeans arrived in California and after The Post began making calls about the shipment, county officials acting on behalf of the USDA showed up at the warehouse where the soybeans were being stored. The officials took samples to test for exposure to pesticides.

By that time, about 21 million pounds of the 36 million-pound shipment had already reached farms and mills. The customers who have purchased the soybeans said they were unaware there may have been a problem until a Post reporter called.

Gauging the extent of fraud in imported organics is difficult because there is little incentive for organic companies to advertise their suspicions about suppliers.

To test USDA claims that organic imports are rigorously monitored, The Post examined pesticide residue testing conducted on organic products in China.

China is the leading source of organic tea and ginger in the United States, and its food exports have drawn repeated scrutiny.

In China, farmers have trouble following their own laws,” said Chenglin Liu, a professor at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio. “ So how can Americans expect Chinese farmers will follow U.S. organic rules?”

As in the United States, farmers in China seeking the “USDA Organic” label hire an inspection agency to certify that they meet the organic rules.

Using public-records laws, The Post obtained the results of pesticide residue tests conducted on farms with USDA organic certification in China. Although pesticide tests are not mandatory, inspection agencies are required to take samples from 5 percent of their clients, and The Post requested the results from the three most active inspection agencies overseeing Chinese farms.

The pesticide results showed very high levels of pesticide residue on some “organic” Chinese products. They also showed that the pesticide residue tests are applied unevenly.

One of the largest inspection agencies, a German company known as Ceres, appears to do rigorous testing.

Ceres conducts most of its tests on plant leaves, rather than on fruits, a method that can be more likely to detect pesticide use.

Their results from China, as a Ceres official said, were “quite shocking.”

Of 232 samples that Ceres tested from the Chinese organic farms, 37 percent showed more than traces of pesticide residue.

This is the reality we are battling with in China,” said Albrecht Benzing of Ceres.

Some of the problem arises from pesticides from neighboring farms drifting over, experts said, and some is contamination from China’s polluted soil and water.

For example, in Shandong province, the Laiwu Manhing Vegetables Fruits Corp. harvests ginger that has been grown organically. But the water available for washing the ginger is so polluted that it leaves pesticide residue.

After the ginger is washed, the water leaves behind pesticide residues too high to be considered organic” in the United States, said Li Hongtao, a sales manager at the company. He said the ginger is sold as organic in some countries but not the United States or Europe.

The pesticide residue results that were obtained by The Post also indicate that enforcement of “USDA Organic” rules for pesticides are uneven and possibly arbitrary, with results depending on the inspection agency.

While Ceres found remarkably high levels of pesticide residue, others reported extremely low levels.

For example, Ecocert, a French inspection agency, reported pesticide residue on about 1 percent of 360 samples from China in 2015 — a level of cleanliness remarkable for any country, let alone China and its well-documented pollution.

This wide range of pesticide use detected by organic inspectors in China — nearly 40 percent at one company and 1 percent in another — suggests a variety of methods and standards at work. Ecocert said their results may be low because they chose samples from a large number of farms. Different firms may also use different thresholds for what constitutes a positive result. The next year, Ecocert said, its testing criteria changed slightly, and the percentage of samples with pesticide levels rose to 8 percent.

Critics say the disparity in results shows that certifying agencies can make any farm look organic.

The certifying agencies can choose who and when they test,” said Mischa Popoff, a former USDA organic inspector turned critic. “That’s why the results they can get are completely arbitrary.”

Each of the questionable organic shipments of corn and soybeans examined by The Post passed through Turkey, a country whose organic exports have provoked criticism from international authorities.

In 2013, for example, a report by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture found that half of European importers and Turkish handlers had detected pesticide residue on organic products from Turkey.

The United States has seen large spikes in the amount of organic corn and soybeans entering from Turkey, according to USDA statistics. Between 2014 and 2016, the amount of organic corn arriving from Turkey rose from 15,000 metric tons to more than 399,000 metric tons; the amount of organic soybeans coming from Turkey rose from 14,000 metric tons to 165,000. (The three shipments examined by The Post represent roughly 7 percent of annual organic corn imports and 4 percent of organic soybean imports.)

Such sudden jumps in organic food production draw scrutiny because the organic transition process is slow — it can take three years for conventional land to be converted into organic farmland.

Where did all this big production come from? Where are these organic farmers?” Miles McEvoy, chief of the USDA’s organic program, said to a group of U.S. organic farmers earlier this year.

The rise of imports has helped drop prices by more than 25 percent, hurting U.S. organic farmers, many of them small operations.

My neighbor, small farm, lost $30,000 last year on 100 acres of organic corn,” said OFARM’s Bobbe. “In fact, there’s so much coming in, we’re finding buyers who won’t take any corn.”

To piece together the three questionable shipments, The Post was given records of the transactions by an industry expert who requested anonymity because they may conflict with the mandates of his employer. The documents included company invoices, shipping records and health certificates accompanying the shipments. Warehouse operators, importers, exporters and Ukrainian officials verified key documents and added details.

The first of the shipments arrived at the port of Wilmington in Delaware a year ago. It consisted of 46 million pounds of “organic” corn.

The Romanian company that provided the corn is not a certified organic company, and receipts show that the corn was initially purchased at the conventional price, not the organic one.

The shipper is listed as Hakan Organics, a Dubai-based company with operations in Turkey.

Hakan Organics is listed as an organic handler in good standing with the USDA.

The first intended customer for the corn, Perdue Agribusiness, asked for additional paperwork and then refused to accept the shipment, because “we could not confirm all the proper documentation” that Perdue requires, a company spokesman said.

The Post could not determine who ended up purchasing the “organic” corn.

Since then, Perdue has not received any shipments from Hakan Organics, a Perdue spokesman said.

Hakan Organics continued to ship agricultural products to the United States.

Hakan Bahceci, the chief executive of Hakan, indicated by email that he would answer questions but then did not respond further.

The second shipment, the soybeans from Ukraine and Turkey, arrived aboard the Four Diamond at the port of Stockton in December 2016.

A set of health certificates that accompanied the soybeans allowed The Post to trace the soybeans from California back to Turkey and to their origin in Ukraine.

The health certificates and associated receipts indicate that they were not really organic. For one thing, the soybeans were fumigated with tablets of aluminum phosphide, a pesticide prohibited under organic regulations; some of the soybeans originated from ADM Ukraine, a company that does not produce or trade organic soybeans and did not sell or label them as such, a company spokeswoman said; and finally, the soybeans were originally priced at the level of conventional soybeans.

Invoices and other documents for those soybeans showed that they were originally priced at about $360 per ton. By the time they reached the United States, the price reached almost $600 per ton.

Global Natural, the Annapolis-based firm that was marketing the soybeans in the United States, said it has stopped selling “all potentially affected product.” Company officials declined to answer further questions.

The importer of the soybeans is Agropex International.

Ashley Anderson, who is listed as the president of Agropex International, insisted that the soybeans that arrived in Stockton are legitimately organic.

The third shipment involved 46 million pounds of “organic” corn that sailed from Romania to Turkey and then to Baltimore, arriving in March.

The Romanian producers of the corn, a company called Belor, is not a certified organic company and sold the corn at conventional prices, according to receipts. But by the time the corn from Romania reached the United States, it was labeled organic. Its price had risen 72 percent. As with the cargo aboard the Four Diamond, the value of the shipment increased by millions.

Dennis Minnaard of DFI Organics said his company had been set to buy some of the corn but rejected the shipment because the broker did not “take away our doubts” about its authenticity.

Yet that “organic” corn continued to be marketed to other customers, according to industry officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the deals.

With “the complex supply chain of organic grain,” McEvoy, the USDA official, told concerned farmers at the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service conference earlier this year, “there are challenges.”

Alex Jones settles Chobani lawsuit, issues apology to refugees

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/333914-alex-jones-settles-chobani-lawsuit-and-issues-apology-to-refugees

Right-wing radio host Alex Jones settled his lawsuit with yogurt maker Chobani on Wednesday and issued an apology for remarks he made about the yogurt company and the refugee workers it employs.

“During the week of April 10, 2017, certain statements were made on the Infowars, Twitter feed and YouTube channel regarding Chobani, LLC that I now understand to be wrong,” Jones said in a statement given to The Los Angeles Times. “The Tweets and video have now been retracted, and will not be re-posted. On behalf of Infowars, I regret that we mischaracterized Chobani, its employees and the people of Twin Falls, Idaho the way we did.”

On April 10, Jones posted a video on his site Infowars titled “Idaho Yogurt Maker Caught Importing Migrant Rapists.” The video was viewed tens of thousands of times, in part due to posts on Infowars’ Twitter account.

In the lawsuit, Chobani said Jones’ remarks in the video “have caused and continue to cause harm to Idaho residents, including Chobani employees, their families and other members of the Twin Falls community.” The company sought damages in excess of $10,000 and a retraction of the posts from Jones.

This isn’t the first time this year Jones has had to apologize for his explosive comments. In March, Jones was forced to apologize on behalf of Infowars to Comet Ping Pong, a Washington, D.C., pizzeria that Jones had implicated in the “Pizzagate” conspiracy, which led to an armed gunman storming the building.

Chobani’s Idaho plant is famous for hiring refugees. Hundreds of refugee work[er]s are currently employed there, and the owner was awarded by the United Nations Foundation in 2015 for his work.

The Ancient Power of Chanting (Mantra) Validated by Modern Science

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/ancient-power-chanting-mantra-validated-modern-science

Posted on: Thursday, May 11th 2017 at 11:45 am

Chanting (mantra) is an ancient technology that modern science reveals connects us in a very real way to the farthest reaches of the universe.

I love chanting mantras, and I do so daily as an integral part of my kundalini yoga practice. I don’t need to know the specifics of how it produces a calming and sometimes even transcendent effect on my consciousness, but I’ve always been deeply curious about the mechanisms that may be at play beneath the surface of my awareness.

This is why I am both deeply grateful and amazed by the work of John Reid, the UK inventor of the cymascope — a technology that renders sound visible. In an article published on his website titled, “Cymatics — A Bridge To the Unseen World,” John and his wife Annaleise reveal facts about sound that are simply mind-blowing and worthy of far greater dissemination.

First, did you know that sound is actually not a wave but spheroidal phenomenon? In their words:

Before looking at cymatics more closely let us dispel the popularly held misconception that “sound is a wave”: It isn’t. All audible sounds are, in fact, spherical in form or spheroidal, that is to say audible sounds are sphere-like but not necessarily perfectly spherical. For the sake of simplicity we’ll call these spheroidal sound spheres “Sound bubbles.”

Take a look at the ultrasound beam produced by dolphins:

As you can see above, the sound is not produced in wave form but as a spheroidal beam. If you were to slice horizontally into the beam and look at the cross section it would appear to contain geometric patterns that contain a type of cymaglyphic information analogous to hieroglyphs. In other words, these sound structures carry information as real and meaningful as words do in human language.

John’s dolphin research using cymatoscope has revealed groundbreaking information about how dolphins communicate and “see” with sound. If you are interested, you can drill deeper into this discovery by reading his landmark paper published in the Journal of Marine Sciences: Research and Development titled, “A Phenomenon Discovered While Imaging Dolphin Echolocation Sounds.”

John and Annaleise go on to explain one of the most amazing facts about the ‘sound bubbles’ that we produce, which I find most compelling in connection to many powerful experiences I have had with mantras, both listening and reciting them, in the yoga tradition:

Our world is teeming with beautiful holographic sound bubbles that envelop us in shimmering patterns of acoustic energy, each bubble rushing away at around 700 miles an hour as new bubbles form from the source of the sound. Whether the sound is emitted from your voice or from some other source, such as a musical instrument, this ‘bubble-in-a-hurry’ leaves a fleeting vibrational imprint on the surface of your body: every cell in the surface tissues of your body actually receives sound patterns from the bubbles that surround you.”

Did you get that? When we speak or chant, we are producing sound bubbles that attain speeds of 700 miles per hour. But it gets better. Check this out:

You create infrared light even when you speak…The atoms and molecules of air within this expanding bubble are bumping into each other, each collision transferring your voice vibrations to the nearest atom or molecule. As these ‘bumps’ occur they cause infrared light to be created due to the friction between the magnetic shells of the air particles. The infrared light carries with it the modulations of your voice that rush away at the incredible speed of 186,000 miles per second. Unlike the sound of a voice, which becomes inaudible after about one mile, the infrared light created by your voice rushes out into space where it travels for eternity, carrying your words or songs to the stars.

Thus, there is a direct relationship between sound and light and in fact there can be no light in the Universe without sound because light is only created when atoms collide with each other, and such collisions are sound. So light and life owe their existence to sound.”

What I find so amazing about this is that kundalini practitioners have long made claims about the power of mantra to connect us to the universe that on the surface may appear like pseudo-science. But the science that John Reid is speaking to — the actual empirical phenomena — now lends scientific support to at least some of these claims.

Here is Yogi Bhajan, founder of the American tradition of kundalini yoga, making statements that make more sense in light of the mechanisms discussed by John Reid:

Every element of the Universe is in a constant state of vibration manifested to us as light, sound, and energy. The human senses perceive only a fraction of the infinite range of vibration, so it is difficult to comprehend that the Word mentioned in the Bible is actually the totality of vibration which underlies and sustains all creation. A person can tune his or her own consciousness into the awareness of that totality with the use of a mantra. By vibrating in rhythm with the breath to a particular sound that is proportional to the creative sound, or sound current, one can expand one’s sensitivity to the entire spectrum of vibration. It is similar to striking a note on a stringed instrument. In other words, as you vibrate, the Universe vibrates with you.”

What is a mantra? Mantra is two words: Man and tra. Man means mind. Tra means the heat of life. Ra means sun. So, mantra is a powerful combination of words which, if recited, takes the vibratory effect of each of your molecules into the Infinity of the Cosmos. That is called ‘Mantra.’”

By vibrating in rhythm with the breath to a particular sound that is proportional to the creative sound, or sound current, one can expand one’s sensitivity to the entire spectrum of vibration. It is similar to striking a note on a stringed instrument. In other words, as you vibrate, the Universe vibrates with you.”

“Mantras are not small things, mantras have power. They are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy having structure, power, and a definite predictable effect on the chakras and the human psyche.”

We live in a remarkable time where what was once purely the stuff of myth, and considered magical thinking and “woo” by skeptics the world over, is starting to receive validation through the ‘hardest of sciences.’ For instance, the concept of the body radiating light is now also accepted through the discovery of biophotons which we reported on in a previous article, and even the ritual of burning medicinal herbs sage to ‘ward off evil spirits’ like has been found to have powerful cleansing properties.

That said, the most powerful way to understand information like this is to experience it directly. I encourage readers to experience the tradition of mantra directly. Listen or recite them, and visualize the sound actually moving at tremendous speed, and producing light that is extending out into the farthest reaches of the universe. Perhaps then the aphorisms of spiritual masters like Yogi Bhajan will no longer seem strange and unattainable.

For The First Time, Physicists Have Observed a Giant Magnetic ‘Bridge’ Between Galaxies

http://www.sciencealert.com/for-the-first-time-physicists-have-observed-the-giant-magnetic-bridget-that-connects-the-milky-way-to-other-galaxies

For the first time, scientists have detected evidence of a magnetic field that’s associated with the vast intergalactic ‘bridge’ that links our two nearest galactic neighbours.

Known as the Magellanic Bridge, the bridge is a huge stream of neutral gas that stretches some 75,000 light-years between our two neighbouring galaxies, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC). Although researchers had predicted it was there, this is the first observation of its magnetic field, and it could help us understand how these vast bridges come to be.

“There were hints that this magnetic field might exist, but no one had observed it until now,” said lead researcher, Jane Kaczmarek from the University of Sydney.

Our closest galactic neighbours, the LMC and SMC (photographed below) are 160,000 and 200,000 light-years from Earth respectively, and are visible in the southern night sky.

Researchers have long known about the Magellanic Bridge that exists between these neighbours, a path with a few known stars inside it. But until now, very little was known about the magnetic field associated with the bridge.

The team has now shown that this newly detected magnetic field is one millionth the strength of Earth’s own protective magnetic shield – and it could provide some insight into how it formed.

Two of the leading options are that the magnetic field was generated from within the bridge after the structure formed, or it may have been ‘ripped’ from the dwarf galaxies thought to have merged and formed the bridge in the first place.

If a bridge between the stars sounds a little sci-fi to you, keep in mind that most of space is made up of different magnetic fields.

“Not only are entire galaxies magnetic, but the faint delicate threads joining galaxies are magnetic, too,” said one of the researchers, Bryan Gaensler from the University of Toronto.

“Everywhere we look in the sky, we find magnetism.”

The reason we’ve struggled to study this structure in the past is the fact that these types of cosmic magnetic fields can only be observed indirectly through their effect on other structures in space.

In this case, radio signals from hundreds of very distant galaxies was used to pick up the magnetic field associated with the Magellanic Bridge.

Radio signals can be thought of like waves on the surface of a pond, in that they vibrate along a particular plane in space.

When these radio signals pass through a magnetic field, that plane is rotated, and it allows astronomers to the measure the strength and polarity (direction) of the field.

“The radio emission from the distant galaxies served as background ‘flashlights’ that shine through the Bridge,” said Kaczmarek.

“Its magnetic field then changes the polarisation of the radio signal. How the polarised light is changed tells us about the intervening magnetic field.”

Now that we’ve been able to detect the field, scientists now have a chance to figure out not only how it formed, but the impact it’s had on the LMC and SMC.

“In general, we don’t know how such vast magnetic fields are generated, nor how these large-scale magnetic fields affect galaxy formation and evolution,” said Kaczmarek.

“The LMC and SMC are our nearest neighbours, so understanding how they evolve may help us understand how our Milky Way Galaxy will evolve. Understanding the role that magnetic fields play in the evolution of galaxies and their environment is a fundamental question in astronomy that remains to be answered.”

Even cooler is the fact that this is just one study that’s part of a bigger project to map the entire Universe’s magnetism.

The research has been published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, and you can read the full paper for free over at arXiv.org.

With all the discussion about unnamed sources, the following must be taken only into consideration. For those who do research, and or those who have some of these items of evidence need to collaborate to get the whole case nailed down.

I received these details of the Benghazi affair from a friend. I haven’t validated the info, but it’s very likely the events took place as described. You might already be aware of this info and it might be old data.

A friend posted this: MUST READ FOR EVERYONE!!!

What’s in the news? NOT MY WORDS:

Hmmm….So the cat is out of the bag, here’s the REAL story.

Amb. Stevens was sent to Benghazi post haste in order to retrieve US made Stinger missiles supplied to Ansar al Sharia without Congressional oversight or permission. Hillary brokered the deal through Stevens and a private arms dealer named Marc Turi. Then some of the shoulder fired missiles ended up in Afghanistan used against our own military.

It was July 25th, 2012 when a Chinook helicopter was taken down by one of our own Stingers, but the idiot Taliban didn’t arm the missile and the Chinook didn’t explode, but had to land anyway. An ordinance team recovered the serial number off the missile which led back to a cache of Stingers being kept in Qatar by the CIA. Obama and Hillary were now in full panic mode and Stevens was sent in to retrieve the rest of the Stingers. This was a “do-or-die” mission, which explains the stand down orders given to multiple commando teams.

It was the State Dept, not the CIA that supplied them to our sworn enemies, because Petraeus wouldn’t supply these deadly weapons due to their potential use on commercial aircraft. Then, Obama threw Gen. Petraeus under the bus after he refused to testify that he OK’d the BS talking points about a spontaneous uprising due to a Youtube video.

Obama and Hillary committed treason…and THIS is what the investigation is all about, why she had a private server, (in order to delete the digital evidence), and why Obama, two weeks after the attack, told the UN that the attack was because of a Youtube video, even though everyone knew it was not.

Further…the Taliban knew that this administration aided and abetted the enemy without Congressional approval when Boehner created the Select Committee, and the Taliban began pushing the Obama Administration for the release of 5 Taliban Generals. Bowe Bergdahl was just a pawn…everyone KNEW he was a traitor.

So we have a traitor as POTUS that is not only corrupt, but compromised…and a woman that is a serial liar, perjured herself multiple times at the Hearing whom is running for POTUS. Only the Dems, with their hands out, palms up, will support her. Perhaps this is why no military aircraft was called in…because the administration knew our enemies had Stingers.

The clip was taken from Aaron Klein’s book, “The Real Benghazi Story”. Aaron Klein is Jewish, runs the Breitbart Jerusalem website and did work for WorldNetDaily.

TGP: Kim Dotcom, a famous internet entrepreneur, recently tweeted out further information on Seth Rich, the DNC staffer who was murdered in July of 2016 in Washington, D.C.

Kim Dotcom now says he has evidence Seth Rich, the murdered DNC operative, is the Wikileaks source.

He’s ready to release the evidence! More

The tweet reads:

If Congress includes #SethRich case into their Russia probe I’ll give written testimony with evidence that Seth Rich was @Wikileaks source.”

Today Kim Dotcom should have given a statement.

US lawyers to argue female genital mutilation is constitutional https://www.rt.com/usa/389251-female-genital-mutilation-constitutional-lawyers/#.WSOinZxG0MI.twitter

Lawyers will argue in a landmark trial that female genital mutilation is a right under religious freedom protected by the First Amendment. Two Detroit doctors and one of their wives are facing multiple federal charges for cutting two seven-year-old girls.

Defense lawyers will argue the doctors didn’t cut the girls’ genitalia and only scraped it, and that the government’s prosecution is culturally and religiously insensitive and their clients were practicing their beliefs, according to the Independent.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) has been banned in the US since 1996. The practice involves removing part of the clitoris or clitoral hood, and is common in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The case is being watched by First Amendment scholars, although many think it will largely rest on scientific evidence.

It is hard for me to imagine any court accepting the religious freedom defense given the harm that’s being dealt in this case,” First Amendment expert Erwin Chemerinsky, a leading constitutional law scholar, told the Detroit Free Press.

The question for jurors will rest on whether the children were harmed. If they were, experts say, the religious freedom defense won’t stand.

The case against the defendants dates to at least February, after the FBI received information that the procedure was being performed at the Livonia clinic in Detroit. Court documents do not indicate the source of the information. Agents were watching the clinic when they saw the two girls and their mothers arrive.

The girls, both from Minnesota, later told investigators their mothers said they were going to Detroit for “a special girls’ trip,” according to court documents filed in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

The government argues the two girls had scarring and abnormalities on their clitorises and labia minora.

One of the girls told investigators after the procedure “she could barely walk, and that she felt pain all the way down to her ankle.”

Dr Jumana Nargarwala, 44, is alleged to have carried out the practice on young children aged six to nine for 12 years. Dr Fakhruddin Attar, 53, is accused of letting Nargarwala use his clinic to carry out the procedure, while his wife Farida Attar, 50, is accused of holding the hands of at least two victims during the cutting procedures to comfort them.

The three belong to the Dawoodi Bohra, an Islamic sect based in India, a “religious and cultural community” that investigators allege practices female circumcision on young girls.

A 2012 study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that over 500,000 women and girls in the US were at risk of undergoing FGM.

The World Health Organization (WHO) considers the procedure a violation of the rights of girls and women. Experts argue the practice creates physical harm, is damaging to mental and emotional health, and creates medical complications.

“According to some members of the Community (religious and cultural community that practices FGM) who have spoken out against the practice, the purpose of this cutting is to suppress female sexuality in an attempt to reduce sexual pleasure and promiscuity,” according to the complaint.

More than 200 million women and girls in 30 countries have undergone the procedure, according to the WHO.

“It reflects deep-rooted inequality between the sexes and constitutes an extreme form of discrimination against women. It is nearly always carried out on minors and is a violation of the rights of children,” according to the WHO.

The three defendants were arrested in April and have been charged with three federal criminal counts including conspiracy, female genital mutilation and aiding and abetting.

Circumcision Permanently Alters the Brain

http://www.circumcision.org/brain.htm

The surgery subjected the infant to significant trauma.

Two of my physics professors at Queen’s University (Dr. Stewart & Dr. McKee) in Kingston, Ontario, Canada were the original developers of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for medical applications. They and a number of other Queen’s physicists also worked on improving the accuracy of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for observing metabolic activity within the human body.

As a graduate student working in the Dept. of Epidemiology in 1998, I was approached by a group of nurses who were attempting to organize a protest against male infant circumcision in Kingston General Hospital. They said that their observations indicated that babies undergoing the procedure were subjected to significant and inhumane levels of pain that subsequently adversely affected their behaviors. They said that they needed some scientific support for their position. It was my idea to use fMRI and/or PET scanning to directly observe the effects of circumcision on the infant brain.

The operator of the MRI machine in the hospital was a friend of mine, and he agreed to allow us to use the machine for research after normal operational hours. We also found a nurse who was under intense pressure by her husband to have her newborn son circumcised, and she was willing to have her son to be the subject of the study. Her goal was to provide scientific information that would eventually be used to ban male infant circumcision. Since no permission of the ethics committee was required to perform any routine male infant circumcision, we did not feel it was necessary to seek any permission to carry out this study.

We tightly strapped an infant to a traditional plastic “circumstraint” using Velcro restraints. We also completely immobilized the infant’s head using standard surgical tape. The apparatus was then introduced into the MRI chamber. The infant’s head was in the chamber while the lower part of the infant’s body was accessible to the doctor performing the circumcision. Since no metal objects could be used because of the high magnetic fields, the doctor used a plastic bell with a sterilized obsidian bade to cut the foreskin. No anesthetic was used.

The baby was kept in the machine for several minutes to generate baseline data of the normal metabolic activity in the brain. This was used to compare to the data gathered during and after the surgery. Analysis of the MRI data indicated that the surgery subjected the infant to significant trauma. The greatest changes occurred in the limbic system concentrating in the amygdala and in the frontal and temporal lobes.

A neurologist who saw the results postulated that the data indicated that circumcision affected most intensely the portions of the victim’s brain associated with reasoning, perception and emotions. Follow up tests on the infant one day, one week and one month after the surgery indicated that the child’s brain never returned to its baseline configuration. In other words, the evidence generated by this research indicated that the brain of the circumcised infant was permanently changed by the surgery.

Our problems began when we attempted to publish our findings in the open medical literature. All of the participants in the research including myself were called before the hospital discipline committee and were severely reprimanded. We were told that while male circumcision was legal under all circumstances in Canada, according to their dubious interpretation of the ethical regulations, any attempt to study the adverse effects of circumcision was prohibited. Not only could we not publish the results of our research, but we also had to destroy all of our results. If we refused to comply, we were all threatened with immediate dismissal and legal action.

I would encourage anyone with access to fMRI and /or PET scanning machines to repeat our research as described above, confirm our results, and then publish the results in the open literature.

Scientists Have Observed Epigenetic Memories Being Passed Down For 14 Generations

The past lives on.

http://www.sciencealert.com/scientists-have-observed-epigenetic-memories-passed-down-for-14-generations

The most important set of genetic instructions we all get comes from our DNA, passed down through generations. But the environment we live in can make genetic changes, too.

Researchers have now discovered that these kinds of environmental genetic changes can be passed down for a whopping 14 generations in an animal – the largest span ever observed in a creature, in this case being a dynasty of C. elegans nematodes (roundworms).

To study how long the environment can leave a mark on genetic expression, a team led by scientists from the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) in Spain took genetically engineered nematode worms that carry a transgene for a fluorescent protein. When activated, this gene made the worms glow under ultraviolet light.

Then, they switched things up for the nematodes by changing the temperature of their containers. When the team kept nematodes at 20° Celsius (68° F), they measured low activity of the transgene – which meant the worms hardly glowed at all.

But by moving the worms to a warmer climate of 25° C (77° F), they suddenly lit up like little wormy Christmas trees, which meant the fluorescence gene had become much more active.

Their tropical vacation didn’t last long, however. The worms were moved back to cooler temperatures to see what would happen to the activity of the fluorescence gene.

Surprisingly, they continued to glow brightly, suggesting they were retaining an ‘environmental memory’ of the warmer climate – and that the transgene was still highly active.

Furthermore, that memory was passed onto their offspring for seven brightly-glowing generations, none of whom had experienced the warmer temperatures. The baby worms inherited this epigenetic change through both eggs and sperm.

The team pushed the results even further – when they kept five generations of nematodes at 25° C (77° F) and then banished their offspring to colder temperatures, the worms continued to have higher transgene activity for an unprecedented 14 generations.

That’s the longest scientists have ever observed the passing-down of an environmentally induced genetic change. Usually, environmental changes to genetic expression only last a few generations.

“We don’t know exactly why this happens, but it might be a form of biological forward-planning,” says one of the team, Adam Klosin from EMBO and Pompeu Fabra University, Spain.

“Worms are very short-lived, so perhaps they are transmitting memories of past conditions to help their descendants predict what their environment might be like in the future,” adds co-researcher Tanya Vavouri from the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute in Spain.

There’s a reason why scientists turn to C. elegans as a model organism – after all, those 14 generations would only take roughly 50 days to develop, but can still give us important clues on how environmental genetic change is passed down in other animals, including humans.

There are many examples of this phenomenon in worms and mice, but the study of environmental epigenetic inheritance in humans is a hotly debated topic, and there’s still a lot we don’t know.

“Inherited effects in humans are difficult to measure due to the long generation times and difficulty with accurate record keeping,” states one recent review of epigenetic inheritance.

But some research suggests that events in our lives can indeed affect the development of our children and perhaps even grandchildren – all without changing the DNA.

For example, studies have shown that both the children and grandchildren of women who survived the Dutch famine of 1944-45 were found to have increased glucose intolerance in adulthood.

Other researchers have found that the descendants of Holocaust survivors have lower levels of the hormone cortisol, which helps your body bounce back after trauma.

The latest study on nematodes is an important step towards understanding more about our own epigenetic inheritance – especially because it serves as a remarkable demonstration of how long-lasting these inter-generational effects may be.

The findings were published in Science.

Whistleblower: A Matter Of Extraordinary Aircraft Safety Threat

FAULTY CHINESE AIRCRAFT SOLD TO DOD with CHARLES SHI

A Matter Of Extraordinary Aircraft Safety Threat

http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1spti53

Charles Shi  @charlesshi888 28th May 2017 

Dear Lawmakers of US Congress and Senate;
FAA administrator Mr. Huerta,
FAA Directors Ms. Gilligan, and Mr. Foushee:

2017-05-29

Notice:
1.Due to the extraordinary nature of the matter and politics factor with a media organization, no exclusive reporting shall be considered
2.Due to DOL judge protective order, some exhibits disclosed by Moog during legal action discovery process mentioned but are not included at this moment. Disclosure of these exhibits shall be agreed upon with selected press Only

Pre- Statement
1.See Moog037and Ex. G, the aircraft safety threat matter I brought to Moog internally back 7th August,2015 and FAA on 13th January,2016 concerns a Suspected Chinese Organized Crime Entity who falsified material certification and used large quantities substitute material for aerospace customers B/E Aerospace and Moog. Moog defrauded Boeing, investors, air travelers as well as FAA in willfully leaking confidential whistleblowing to the very suspect,misrepresenting the material facts, endorsement of criminal activity of tampering and destroying evidences, committing perjury and forgery during FAA investigative and discovery process making the matter probably the biggest scam in the history of aviation industry.
2.FAA wrongdoing during the investigation including abuse of authority, dereliction of duty, endorsement of Moog cover-up should be investigated and sanctions should be imposed on any perpetrators found.
3.It is appealed that US lawmakers and public demanding a grand re-investigation by FAA and DOJ or LEA working together with Chinese counterparts to uncover the extraordinary criminality and fraud, eliminating the safety threat at whatever cost to save thousands of life that may get perished due to the hazard still with the airplanes in service.

I. Case History

1.My name is Charles (Chaosheng) Shi. a Chinese Notional, I was formerly employed by the Aircraft Group of Moog Inc. as East Asia Supply Chain Manager.  I served in that position for 10 years between 2006/09-2016/01.  Since January 13, 2016, I have acted as a whistle blower to the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) on an extraordinarily significant aircraft safety matter.(See Exh. 73 my updated resume)
2.FAA acknowledged my whistleblwoing on March 10,2016,See Exh. H. FAA assigned an investigator to my case, Mr. Robert Fortune, whom I communicated with several times in April,2016.  See. Exh. 42. I requested at least four times that Mr. Fortune verify material facts regarding faulty aircraft parts and informed him of the part numbers he should verify material facts. However, FAA ignored my requests, and on June 1st the FAA closed the case without substantiating any violations. See Exh. I and Exh.E
3.I then submitted new evidence on 12th July and requested through the FAA Safety Hotline that the case be re-opened and re-investigated.  See. Exh.40. Unfortunately my then US lawyer emailed me 2016/08/12 that FAA declined my request. See Exh.41.
4.Disappointed but not discouraged, on August 17th I submitted via my lawyer to the FAA Safety Hotline compelling objective evidence obtained from my own investigative endeavor that the Chinese supplier Suzhou New Hongji (NHJ) substituted 3 lots of approved raw material with over 700 pieces for a production order of some 1000 pieces of Moog machined parts. See. Exh. 22. The part number P665A-0039-02 that got particularly close attention in my whole internal and external whistleblowing is a single point of failure(SPOF) part for B737 spoiler. A SPOF part is a part of a system that, if it fails, will stop the entire system from working. See Exhibit RF20, the Part Description is block trunnion(mounting lug),Spoiler actuators are used to lift the wing flaps when airplane take-off and land to reduce/adjust speed. Exh. Moog116 and 117, If P665A0039-02, the SPOF fractured during landing or taking off due to use of fake material, the whole spoilers just get ripped off from the wing, causing catastrophic accidents.
5.At that time FAA did re-open the case, again with Mr. Fortune as the investigator.   See Exh. 52,53, as my own investigation effort had produced objective evidence indicating that criminality and fraud has occurred and is continuing to occur, I and my US lawyer communicated with Mr. Fortune in an effort to have him notify other law enforcement agencies and thoroughly investigate this matter per FAA Order 8120.16A, Suspected Unapproved Part Program and FAA Order 2150.3B.  On 4-3 of FAA Order 8120.16A, Coordinating Criminal Investigation, it states “If parts have been intentionally misrepresented, criminal activity may be involved, inspectors should refer to FAA Order 2150.3 for additional guidance and information about criminal investigation.”
6.According to FAA Procedure, the safety matter should be uncovered swiftly.  however, more than two months passed, and the investigation appeared to have made no progress.   This is notwithstanding the grave safety threat posed by the faulty/counterfeit parts that I have repeatedly asked FAA to look into.
7.Feeling Mr. Fortune might have abused his authority conducting the investigation, also feeling FAA itself did not take the matter seriously, I filed via email 31/10/2016 a request to FAA Administrator Mr. Michael Huerta demanding escalated investigation by FAA with LEA to uncover the criminality See Exh. 56.
8.Despite our efforts, we learned from Mr. Al Westrom of the FAA window person that no LEA was called or involved to Nov 8th,2016 when I did receive a letter of FAA violation finding. See Exh. K.
9.Not knowing what exactly FAA substantiated violations, I requested detailed FAA investigation reports via FOIA. I received 2 relatively detailed reports dated May 27,2016 and Nov 4,2016 respectively on December 21,2016 as Exh. E. After careful study and conducting my own verification with witnesses recently again, it is realized 2 FAA investigation reports are seriously flawed. They are mislead by Moog willful fraudulent misrepresentation and concealment of facts, FAA failed to identify and verify the critical material facts by not even conducting independent investigation. The investigator only accepted whatever Moog told him, not even verifying with objective evidences I submitted. The deadly flawed investigation was clear abuse of authority and dereliction of duty beyond any doubt. In the following Section, I shall rebut each of the FAA investigation findings.

#SETHRICH WAS A HERO By Kim Dotcom

http://kim.com

I KNOW THAT SETH RICH WAS INVOLVED IN THE DNC LEAK.

I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.

Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful.

I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and the influence of corporate money in politics.

He wanted to change that from the inside.”

I was referring to what I knew when I did an interview with Bloomberg in New Zealand in May 2015. In that interview I hinted that Julian Assange and Wikileaks would release information about Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.

The Rich family has reached out to me to ask that I be sensitive to their loss in my public comments. That request is entirely reasonable.

I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.

If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.

STATEMENT FROM

KIM DOTCOM
Facebook and radio audiences have sought Billy Hayes’ expertise for years without fully realizing the price he has paid for his extraordinary expertise. Known as “The HAARP Man,” Billy was a tower erector shadowed his entire life by U.S. government agencies and the defense contractors that work for them. He is also an MK-ULTRA survivor.

His father worked for one of those government agencies, so Billy became a “White House boy” who spent several years at the juvenile reform institute known as the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, northern Florida. In 2010, 30-some graves of “White House boys” were found during an investigation. Dozier was finally closed in 2011 after 111 years of abuse, beatings, rapes, torture, and murder of students. A Department of Corrections prison was quickly constructed over it, perhaps to hide at least 150 more graves of boys killed. In the early 60’s, Billy remembers drugs being administered to students pursuant to profiling victims for MK-ULTRA.

In 1962, Billy left Dozier and was sent to Niceville High School in Niceville, Florida where he missed a lot of classes while being MK-ULTRA programmed and trained in electronics and electromagnetics.

In those early years of programming and training seminars, he encountered many names listeners would recognize, such as Mark McCandlish, Jack Martin, Cathy O’Brien, Fred Bell, Ted Gunderson, and Mike Ruppert. (Billy maintained nearly daily contact with Ruppert and Gunderson until their deaths.)

 Elana Freeland, author of ‘Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth’, explained how the metals in the chem-trails are heating up and ionizing our upper atmosphere and the military has weaponed it. We cannot escape the frequencies we are being bombarded with inside and out but there is a way to stay healthy despite it all.

Computers and Your Eyes 

As more and more people are spending more and more time on computers, we are developing more and more computer induced problems. But there are ancient, natural solutions to these modern, technological problems.

Asthenopia, or eye strain caused by excessive work, is a growing complaint in a world of computers and smart phones. Common symptoms include dry eyes, eye fatigue, burning or stinging eyes, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, headaches and neck and back pain. When you stare at electronic screens you actually blink less, causing dry eyes and increased eye discomfort. 64-90% of computer users develop a condition called computer vision syndrome (CVS): asthenopia caused by computer use. People who work on computers for more than 4 hours—and that’s many of us today—have been shown to have significantly worse eye discomfort (Ann Med Health Sci Res 2014;4(2):179–85). People who use e-readers instead of books also have increased eye fatigue (PloS One 2013;8(12), e83676).

Bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) is the greatest of eye herbs: it has been shown to help several eye conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.  It can also help with near sightedness, eye strain and with adjusting to light and dark.

Recently, researchers set out to see if this great eye herb can also help with computer-induced eye fatigue. The results were exciting. 83 people between the ages of 20 and 40 took either a placebo or 160mg of bilberry extract 3 times a day for 8 weeks in this blinded study. The people played video games for 2 hours. Changes in vision were significantly reduced in the bilberry group. Eye fatigue, pain, and heaviness were all significantly reduced compared to placebo (J Nutr Health Aging 2015;19:548-54).

Ginkgo biloba, a herb shown to benefit glaucoma and macular degeneration, has also been shown to be helpful against eye strain from computer use.

In a double-blind study, 478 people with symptoms of computer vision syndrome who used computers for at least 3 hours a day for at least 1 year took either an olive oil placebo or omega-3 essential fatty acid supplements containing 360mg of EPA and 240mg of DHA for 3 months. The study concluded that omega-3 essential fatty acids alleviate dry eye symptoms in people suffering from computer vision syndrome (Contact Lens & Anterior Eye 2015;38(3):206-10

Lutein, a carotene, is another powerful eye nutrient. It has been shown to help both cataracts and macular degeneration. So, researchers tried giving 6g of lutein, 12g of lutein or a placebo to 37 people who were exposed to long-term computer display light exposure. After 12 weeks, there was a trend toward improved visual acuity in the 12g lutein group and significant improvement in contrast sensitivity. The researchers concluded that lutein improves visual function: especially contrast sensitivity (Paediatr Perinat Epidemiol 1998;12:176-81).

James Kohut, Santa Cruz brain surgeon, and nurse arrested in child sex abuse case

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/james-kohut-santa-cruz-brain-surgeon-and-nurse-arrested-in-child-sex-abuse-case/

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Authorities have arrested a brain surgeon and a nurse in Northern California on multiple charges involving child sexual abuse.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Dr. James Kohut was arrested Sunday at his home in Santa Cruz in cases involving a child under the age of 10 and a child under 14. He was booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail and is being held without bail.

Watsonville police Capt. Jorge Zamora says nurse Rashel Brandon was arrested May 10 and charged with 11 felonies involving child sexual abuse as well as multiple charges related to the production of child pornography.

Both Kohut and Brandon worked at Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz.

“Dignity Health Dominican Hospital is aware of the allegations and has taken the appropriate steps,” the hospital said in a statement to CBS affiliate KION. “In accordance with hospital policy, we cannot comment on personnel matters.”

Police said a community member alerted authorities about the alleged crimes about a week ago, reports KION. They are not saying if the cases are connected, the station reports.

Zamora says a third, unidentified suspect is in custody outside of California.

Kohut, 57, was arrested on suspicion of committing a lewd act upon a minor under age 10, a lewd act upon a child under 14, and a forcible lewd act upon a child under the age of 14, said Steven Moore, a Santa Cruz county deputy district attorney, reports CBS San Francisco.

The alleged crimes occurred in Santa Cruz County, Moore said.

Watsonville police called the case “a serious sexual assault case which crossed state lines,” the station reports.

The FBI, the District Attorney’s office and the regional Internet Crimes Against Children task force are assisting in the investigation, Watsonville police said.

Anyone with further information about the case is asked to contact the Watsonville Police Department Investigation Division at (831) 768-3350 or the Crime Tip Line at (831) 768-3544.

‘The Drug Whisperer’: Drivers arrested while stone cold sober

http://www.khou.com/news/nation-now/the-drug-whisperer-drivers-arrested-while-stone-cold-sober/439206628

COBB COUNTY, Ga. – Drunk driving arrests are down sharply after decades of aggressive enforcement, while drugged driving arrests are climbing.

Georgia now has more than 250 officers with special ‘drug recognition expert’ training.

But WHAS11’s partner station WXIA’s Chief Investigator Brendan Keefe discovered some drivers are getting arrested for driving stoned — even when their drug tests came back clean.

Cobb County Police Officer T.T. Carroll: “You said you haven’t had anything to drink tonight?”

Katelyn Ebner: “Not tonight, no.”

Officer Carroll: “Not tonight, okay. One of the things we do is we ask people to blow through this thing, okay.”

Katelyn Ebner crossed the center line, and got pulled over on the way home from work. She works in a bar, and does not drink while at work.

Officer Carroll: “Blow real hard, blow ’til I ask you to stop — keep going, keep going — you can stop. Okay.”

No, she had not been drinking. All tests for alcohol came up empty. But the Cobb County police officer who pulled her over was not done yet.

Officer Carroll: “I’m going to ask you a question, okay? When was the last time you smoked marijuana?”

Katelyn Ebner: “Oh, I don’t do that. I can give you a drug test right now.”

Officer Carroll: “You don’t smoke marijuana?”

Katelyn Ebner: “I do not, no.”

Officer Carroll: “Okay. Well, you’re showing me indicators that you have been smoking marijuana, okay?”

“I didn’t realize that you could get arrested for something that you didn’t do,” Ebner told Keefe. “That never crossed my mind until it happened to me.”

Officer Carroll: “Watch your wrists for me, I don’t want to pinch you.”

Katelyn Ebner: “I’m going to jail for marijuana?”

Officer Carroll: “No, ma’am — not possession, unless I find any in your car. I believe you’re impaired by the marijuana you’ve smoked.”

Katelyn Ebner: “Okay, so when I do a drug test, I’ll be free to go, correct?”

Officer Carroll: “You’re going to jail, ma’am. Okay? I don’t have a magical drug test that I can give you right now.”

“Before you felt the handcuffs closing over your wrist, did you understand just how serious this was?” Keefe asked Ebner.

“I didn’t understand,” Ebner said. “As soon as I took that breathalyzer, I thought I was going home.”

The waitress spent the night in jail, had her alcohol server’s permit revoked because of the arrest. After four months, prosecutors dismissed all her charges — because the blood test came back completely clean.

“You had to spend months — and thousands of dollars — proving your innocence,” Keefe said.

“I did,” Ebner said.

Officer Carroll: “When’s the last time you smoked weed?”

Princess Mbamara: “I don’t smoke weed.”

Officer Carroll: “You don’t smoke weed?”

Princess Mbamara: “No. Not at all.”

Officer Carroll: “Okay.”

The same thing happened to college student Princess Mbamara two weeks earlier — on Good Friday.

Princess Mbamara: “Wait — okay, hold on sir.”

Officer Carroll: “Just one second — Just give me one second.”

Princess Mbamara: “You’re arresting me!?”

Officer Carroll: “That’s correct.”

Princess Mbamara: “Sir, hold on one second. I’m complying.”

“I didn’t understand,” Mbamara told Keefe. “I was like, ‘Why are you arresting me? What did I do? I did everything. I walked the straight line, I touched my nose, I did everything you asked.’ I was like, ‘Why am I getting arrested?’ And he said, ‘DUI of a substance.’ And I was like, ‘What!?'”

Princess Mbamara: “You’re arresting me because you think I smoke marijuana?”

Officer Carroll: “I think you’re impaired by cannabis, yes, ma’am.”

Princess Mbamara: “Sir, I don’t smoke weed! Is there a way you can test me right now?”

Princess Mbamara was also jailed. She fought the DUI-drug charges for half of 2016.

“So the blood test comes back, and they toss the case?” Keefe asked.

“I remember my lawyer trying to talk about a deal,” she said. “I was like, ‘I’m not taking a deal. I didn’t do anything! I want more than just a deal — I want more than just dismissal; I want my life back. Can you reverse time? If you can go back in time, then that’s what I really want.'”

Mbamara’s toxicology screen came back and only showed positive for lidocaine — an over-the-counter local anesthetic used in transdermal patches to treat back pain, insect bites and other types of pain and discomfort. Lidocaine can be found in many other anti-burn, anti-itch and pain creams, lotions and medications sold both over-the-counter and by prescription under a myriad of brand names, including Aspercreme, Icy Hot, Salonpas, Preparation H, Gold Bond, Solarcaine and others.

Officer Carroll: “How’re you doing?”

Auburn Student: “I’m doing great.”

Officer Carroll: “Okay — Let’s just walk over here for a second.”

Auburn Student: “All right.”

ANOTHER INVESTIGATION: Trigger: Who shot the officer’s wife?

Months later, it happened again to an Auburn University student.

Officer Carroll: “You’re giving me indicators that you have consumed marijuana, okay? So at this time, I believe that your failure to maintain lane was the reason for that — so you’re being placed under arrest for DUI, okay?”

The prosecutor filed a dismissal of the DUI-drug charge five months later: “Defendant performed well on FSEs (Field Sobriety Evaluations) and blood and urine were negative.”

Three DUI drug arrests — Three clean toxicology screenings — One police officer: Cobb County Police Officer T.T. Carroll.

Documents show Carroll is one of the best-trained officers on Cobb County’s legendary DUI Task Force.

Officer Carroll: “Well you’re showing me numerous indicators.”

Katelyn Ebner: “I understand that. But I can 1,000 percent guarantee you that I don’t do that stuff.”

Officer Carroll: “Okay.”

He’s a certified drug recognition expert — one of 250 Georgia officers who have gone through a month-long training course.

The DRE Evaluation involves a dozen observations that allow officers not only to pronounce a driver is on drugs, but to identify which of seven types of drugs are in their system.

Princess Mbamara: “How can you look at somebody and say marijuana?”

Officer Carroll: “Because of the totality of the circumstances and a lot of things — and there are involuntary responses of the body that we can observe that have suggested impairment of marijuana, okay?”

“He looked at you. He did this technique that he was taught, and he determined you were on something you weren’t on,” Keefe said.

“Yeah, unfortunately for me,” Mbamara said.

Officer Carroll: “Because he’s ingested marijuana — that’s what my training suggests, okay?”

Officer Carroll relies on his drug recognition expert training — but in these three dismissed cases, he did not do the full evaluation after the arrests. The standard protocol requires all 12 steps to be completed — yet, any police officer can make a DUI-drug arrest on fewer observations.

Officer Carroll: “If I establish probable cause, and I believe that based on my training, so that’s why I put the handcuffs on you, okay?”

Auburn Student: All right.

Katelyn Ebner: “Sir, I can promise you, I have never — please — I have never smoked marijuana.”

Officer Carroll: “Okay. Well, ma’am, you’re giving me indicators — several, several indicators — that you have, okay?”

Katelyn Ebner: “Okay, so when I do a drug test, I’ll be free to go, correct?”

Officer Carroll: “You’re going to jail, ma’am. Okay? I don’t have a magical drug test that I can give you right now.”

“But he just did the ‘magical drug test’ that resulted in your arrest,” Keefe said.

“Yes,” Ebener said. “They’re ruining people’s lives.”

Katelyn Ebner filed an Internal Affairs complaint against Officer Carroll.

Cobb County Investigators exonerated the officer and doubted Ebner’s innocence, insisting, ‘the marijuana could have already metabolized out of the blood.’

“When you brought up that you had a clean blood test when complaining to Internal Affairs, their answer was what?” Keefe asked.

“They said, ‘Yeah, we see this happen all the time. Um, the test results come back wrong all the time,'” she said.

“So the test results were wrong?” Keefe asked.

“Yeah, that’s what they said,” Ebner replied. “The test results were wrong, and also, if I had a urine test, it would have come back positive for drugs.”

But Katelyn got her own urine test the same week as her arrest — scanning for any metabolites that would still be in her system. The urine test was also negative for marijuana — or other drugs.

“This training is so powerful, that they believe they can detect drugs that a blood test will not detect,” Keefe said. “Is that surprising to you?”

“That’s extremely surprising,” Princess Mbamara replied. “That’s extremely surprising — because this is my life that they’re playing with.”

Last week, Cobb County’s DUI Task Force was awarded a trophy by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and Officer Carroll was given a Silver Medal for 90 DUI arrests during 2016.

“He’s getting an award for just arrests,” Mbamara said. “Not even convictions. Arrests.”Mbamara said. “Not even convictions. Arrests.”

“And you were one of them,” Keefe said.

“And I’m one of these arrests,” Mbamara said. “So this guy is just stacking up on awards and trophies. On ruining people’s lives.”

“He’s getting praised for arresting innocent people,” Katelyn Ebner said. “I’m not saying all those people he arrested were innocent, but at least three of them were, and no one is doing anything about it.”

“It’s something that I’m going to have to carry for the rest of my life,” Mbamara said.

Officer Carroll got a promotion and a merit raise after a 2016 employment evaluation — which also noted most of his DUI arrests end in convictions or pleas. Supervisors call him the department’s ‘go-to officer when it comes to DUI-drugs.” He got top marks for making the correct arrest-no arrest decision on impaired drivers.

There’s no mention of the three drivers who had their DUI charges thrown out because of negative lab tests.

What is the Cobb County Police Department saying about all of this?

Commanders would not let Officer Carroll talk with us, but they stand behind the arrests. The department doubled-down on their assertion that the drug recognition expert is better at detecting marijuana in a driver than scientific tests.

Cobb County says the GBI Crime Lab reports negative when even trace amounts are detected.

Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano just made a stunning claim about the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and President Barack Obama.

http://conservativetribune.com/breaking-judge-reveals-scalia/

In a segment this week on the Fox News Business Network’s “Mornings With Maria,” Napolitano said he was told by Scalia that Scalia thought the Supreme Court was under surveillance by the administration of former President Barack Obama.

Justice Scalia told me he often thought the court was being surveilled, and he told me that probably four or five years ago,” Napolitano said in the clip shown below.

Whoa.

That’s huge for a couple of reasons.

First of all, if that claim is true, it’s a gross overreach of the executive branch into the judicial branch, to say the least. But much, much more than that, think of the massive rulings that were made over the course of the Obama presidency:

Two crucial Obamacare rulings. Gay marriage legalized nationwide — one of the most controversial rulings in recent memory. And if Obama’s White House really did have the Supreme Court under surveillance, Obama could have been inappropriately informed about all of it.

And, as the judge pointed out in the segment, “the use of intelligence data for political purposes is a felony.”

Let’s not forget that President Donald Trump had also made similar accusations against the Obama administration not long ago

It’s a strange coincidence for several prominent politicians — including Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who has recently made formal requests for information on his own possible surveillance by the Obama administration — to be claiming the same injury against a man not really known for his uprightness and honesty.

Could there be some truth to this?

At the Conservative Tribune, we’ve discussed Obama’s fascination, shall we way, with surveillance before — this is just further confirmation.

But by all means, mainstream media, go nuts about whatever conversation was had between Trump and the Russians last week.

Act by May 17: No Forced Spraying of Roundup on this Organic Farm!

https://action.organicconsumers.org/o/50865/p/dia/action4/common/public/

County officials want to spray a 2,000-acre certified organic farm in Oregon with Monsanto’s cancer-causing Roundup and other pesticides—and force the farm to pay for it!

Officials in Central Oregon’s Sherman County say they need to spray Azure Farms in order to eradicate “noxious weeds.” Owners of the farm (which has been USDA certified organic for 18 years) say if the county follows through with its plans, it could put the farm out of business.

DEADLINE MAY 17: Take action to stop Sherman County from spraying Azure Farms with Monsanto’s Roundup!

Fill in the form on this page to send a message to the Sherman County court, and then call Lauren, the court’s administrative assistant, at 541-565-3416. Azure Farms, located in Moro, Ore., is no small operation.

Azure provides nearly all the organic wheat, field peas, barley, Einkorn and beef for Azure Standard, a major independent distributor of organic and non-GMO foods in the U.S.

The “noxious weeds” in question—Morning Glory, Canada Thistle and Whitetop—have co-existed with the farm’s organic crops for years, without causing problems for the farm or the lands around it, according to the farm’s owners. They say they have successfully managed the weeds using organic farming and weed-control practices.

But Sherman County could issue a court order as early as Monday, May 22, to force the entire farm under quarantine while county officials douse the property in Roundup and other toxic herbicides. The chemicals, which could be applied to an area one-and-a-half times the size of the city center of Philadelphia, may also affect the surrounding areas, causing unpredictable health and environmental effects.

To add insult to injury, the County has threatened to place a lien on the farm to guarantee payment to the County for the labor and chemicals.

The order follows a change in the interpretation of a county code, from “controlling” noxious weeds to “eradicating them.” Azure Farm’s owners say the County’s plan is flawed because it’s nearly impossible to completely eradicate the weeds—so all the County will succeed in doing is putting Azure Farm out of business.

Erdogan came away from Washington meeting with Trump ‘empty-handed’

https://www.rt.com/op-edge/388695-gulen-washington-turkey-us/

I think Turkey is going to have to take what it gets here, especially if the US does move forward with cooperation with Russia against ISIS and other terrorist groups. The Kurds are going to be essential to that, Jim Jatras, former US diplomat, told RT.

The leaders of the two countries discussed a broad range of issues. Ankara and Washington’s greatest disagreements are on the questions of Kurdish fighters in Syria and the extradition of Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen.

RT: How would you describe the atmosphere of the Erdogan-Trump talks?

Jim Jatras: I would describe it as correct. I wouldn’t call it cordial; I wouldn’t call it hostile. But I don’t think there was a whole lot of substance to it. I think Mr. Erdogan basically came away empty-handed, that’s if you look at their comments after their meeting, which consists mostly platitudes. There were no questions taken that I don’t think there was a whole out of agreement on much of anything; that Trump paid lip service to the idea that PKK are terrorists, but of course the YPG in Northern Syria; that the US is working closely with, the Turks consider terrorists. He’s not going to get any movement out of Mr. Trump on that.

RT: Erdogan claims Turkey wants better ties with the US. But how possible is that, in view of Ankara’s stance on the Kurdish military considered by America as a leader in the fight against ISIS. What chance for a successful partnership between Ankara and Washington?

JJ: I think Turkey is going to have to take what it gets here, especially if the US does move forward with cooperation with Russia against ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other terrorist groups. The Kurds are going to be essential to that. And everybody in Washington knows that, and the Turks know that. The best that Erdogan can hope for is some kind of assurance from Washington that there will not be any further expansion of the Kurdish zone to the west, and that they will not be allowed to in any way threaten Turkish territory. Other than those kinds of assurances, I don’t think that Mr. Erdogan could expect very much and he will have to go along with what’s offered to him.

RT: It seems some journalists present were much more interested in US relations with Russia, not Turkey. Why is that do you think?

JJ: Of course, we’re in another frenzy here with the entire media, which is very hostile to Trump are busy chasing their tails. We’ve got the story about classified information that Trump supposedly told Mr. [Sergey] Lavrov and Mr. [Sergey] Kislyak, the National Security Advisor, the Secretary of State – everybody has denied the accuracy of the Washington Post story. This is fake news by any account. They are running on with it, splitting hairs, every word, trying to find something they can throw at the White House.

Ammar Waqqaf, Director of Gnosos, a British think tank that focuses on crises in Syria and the Middle East

RT: What’s your take on the latest visit of Erdogan to Washington?

Ammar Waqqaf: A large part of the Erdogan and Turkish leadership rhetoric is targeted domestically to their own electorate, to their own people to bring Turkish public opinion up to speed with whatever they want to do. Part of it is only a message toward the US. [Yesterday he was] in Washington – he would want to be as friendly as possible in order to get as much as possible from President Trump. He said Turkey would have to be a little bit cautious regarding the US… He is not going to pick up a fight with President Trump. He obviously knows that President Trump is not to be messed with in terms of rhetoric…

RT: The extradition of Fethullah Gulen still remains a key issue in Turkish-US relations. What do you make of it?

AW: In a sense probably the US recognizes that the entire Fethullah Gulen rhetoric and issue is more targeted toward the domestic affairs of Turkey, rather than as an international affair or dispute. They do not wish to concede on that, and they find it probably an opportunity for them to reinforce the image of their judicial system and the democratic values that they have: someone who is not convicted cannot be expedited, and so on, and so forth. This would go on for a long time, but for Turkey – or for the Turkish president – the more he uses the Gulen affair, the more he is able to mobilize part of the Turkish electorate behind him against others. We’ve seen that clearly during the coup d’état that happened a few months back. He’s carrying on with the same way

February 23

The Washington Post today announced that John Podesta will join the Opinion section as a contributing columnist. Podesta, former chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign, will provide commentary and analysis on the intersection of politics and policy, the Trump administration and the future of the Democratic Party.

$35bn hit: Zuckerberg, Gates among those to suffer massive losses amid Trump-Russia claims

https://www.rt.com/usa/388803-world-richest-lose-money-trump/

Billionaires and millionaires the world over have become poorer to the tune of $35 billion, following the media scandal surrounding allegations of highly classified data being leaked by US President Donald Trump to Russia.

Stock markets suffered a meltdown on Wednesday after the alleged revelations, resulting in huge losses for almost every one of world’s 500 richest people, according to Bloomberg.

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg took the biggest hit, estimated at more than $2 billion. Shares in the social media giant fell 3.3 percent, but Zuckerberg still holds fifth position on the global rich list with around $62.3 billion, according to the Bloomberg index.

The richest person on the planet, Bill Gates, lost around $1 billion amid the carnage, as Microsoft’s shares suffered the most significant drop in almost a year – 2.8 percent. Still, Gates’ net worth is $86.8 billion, according to Bloomberg.

Gates was fourth on the list in terms of the amount of reduced capital. Jeff Bezos, the co-founder of Amazon.com, the world’s largest online retailer, is second after Zuckerberg based on the size of losses incurred amid the political uproar.

Before the stock market dive, Bezos was second behind Gates in terms of overall wealth. The turmoil saw Amazon shares recede 2.2 percent, however, and he now stands third with a $81.9 billion – a loss of more than $1.7 billion.

Bezos was overtaken on the list by Amancio Ortega, a Spanish business tycoon and chairman of Inditex, the world’s largest clothing company, best known for its Zara chain. Ortega lost $355 million, five times less than Zuckerberg’s loss, and is now the second wealthiest person on the planet with $83.2 billion.

Wednesday’s market drop followed US media reports on alleged state secret leaks during the meeting between US President Trump and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov last week.

The revelations were dismissed by Russia, with President Vladimir Putin calling them “political schizophrenia.” Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry also dismissed the media claims, saying that reading US newspapers can “not only be harmful, but dangerous.”

The eight richest people on Earth are estimated to possess wealth equal to that of the 3.6 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity.

According to the latest Bloomberg estimates, the top 500 billionaires and millionaires are valued at around $4.9 trillion. A 2016 report by Boston Consulting Group said only 1 percent of the world’s population owns almost half of its wealth, and that the wealth of the rich is only growing.

Don’t forget, Bezos owns the WaPo and Amazon. WaPo is the ones who started the FakeNews about Trump Russia and Classified Info.

Message for the week:

The code of silence or the Thin Blue Line. The difference between Cops and Police.

We wonder at the criminal actions of cops and how they are never held accountable. We tend to hat all cops when we see these stories and videos of cops breaking the law and breaking the bodies and lives of those the are supposed to be protecting.

Donna “Jane” Watts has had her private information accessed by cops more than 200 times, and she has been harassed.

You see, she had crossed the Thin Blue Line Code of Silence (they call it Professional Courtesy) when she, in October 2011, pulled over a uniformed, off-duty Miami cop who was speeding at 120 mph in his cruiser through Broward on Florida’s Turnpike. She handcuffed him and cited him for reckless driving. The high-speed pursuit, caught on dashcam video, outraged the public.

Trooper who pulled over speeding cop loses privacy lawsuit against Miami officers

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/fl-sb-jane-watts-miami-case-20170208-story.html

Florida Highway Patrol trooper who made national news for pulling over a speeding cop at gunpoint lost the only part of her privacy lawsuit against police that made it to court.

An appeals court on Wednesday sided with five Miami officers, finding that Trooper Donna “Jane” Watts didn’t prove they violated her privacy by using a state database to look up her personal information.

Watts’ lawsuit alleged 88 law enforcement officers from 25 jurisdictions illegally accessed her personal information more than 200 times, violating her privacy. All of them settled — except for the five Miami officers, who were individually named in the lawsuit and took it to court.

The Miami officers argued that because Watts had pulled her gun on a Miami police officer, they “wanted to be able to identify her for their own safety” and so they needed to see her picture.

Watts drew attention in October 2011, when she pulled over a uniformed, off-duty Miami officer who was speeding at 120 mph in his cruiser through Broward on Florida’s Turnpike.

After following him, she handcuffed him and cited him for reckless driving. The high-speed pursuit, caught on dashcam video, outraged the public and led to a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation by the Sun Sentinel that found off-duty speeding throughout South Florida police agencies.

After the traffic stop, Watts said she became afraid of the police: She received online threats, hang-ups on her home phone and cellphone, according to her lawsuit. Police followed her for no reason, and pranksters sent pizza to her house, the lawsuit said.

Cars stopped and lingered on her cul-de-sac, she said in her suit.

Watts alleged that other law enforcement officers created a “life-threatening” situation that caused her to fear so much for her safety she became physically ill and began living as a “hermit.”

She also began opening her mailbox from the side instead of from the front in case there was something in it. She eventually moved from her Coral Springs home to the Florida Panhandle, her attorney has said.

In the months that followed, officers from across Florida looked up information such as Watts’ home address, picture, Social Security number, date of birth and a detailed vehicle description in the state’s official database.

So she made a public records request with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to be notified about anyone trying to find personal details about her.

In Broward that included the Broward Sheriff’s Office (which settled for $6,000); Hollywood (settled for $5,000) and Lauderhill ($6,500). Margate, to avoid being listed in the suit, settled for $10,000.

The city of Miami also settled for $24,500 in December, confirmed city spokeswoman Diana Gonzalez on Wednesday. And, the police department’s own internal affairs investigation determined the five Miami officers had done a search that was not for law enforcement purposes, and not allowed. They were officially reprimanded, but not punished.

Records show that even after seeing her picture, the Miami officers — Pablo Camacho, Roshan Milliagan, Jesus Pedraza, Jamie Ramirez and David Ciserno — still searched her information. But Watts couldn’t prove “these guys sent the pizza or drove by. They looked her up because she pointed a gun [at an officer] and they work in the area,” said the officers’ attorney, Robert Buschel. “There is no connection they harassed her.”

The incident “sent off hysteria throughout the Miami Police Department and these officers were concerned for their safety,” said Buschel. “They didn’t drive to Broward, they never harassed her, they never sent any pizza.”

An attorney for Watts could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-revealed-highly-classified-information-to-russian-foreign-minister-and-ambassador/2017/05/15/530c172a-3960-11e7-9e48-c4f199710b69_story.html?utm_term=.c8036464fb12

President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.

The information the president relayed had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from allies and tightly restricted even within the U.S. government, officials said.

The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and the National Security Agency.

This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

The revelation comes as the president faces rising legal and political pressure on multiple Russia-related fronts. Last week, he fired FBI Director James B. Comey in the midst of a bureau investigation into possible links between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Trump’s subsequent admission that his decision was driven by “this Russia thing” was seen by critics as attempted obstruction of justice.

One day after dismissing Comey, Trump welcomed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — a key figure in earlier Russia controversies — into the Oval Office. It was during that meeting, officials said, that Trump went off script and began describing details of an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.

I did a video about this pile of rubbish of an article. Since I had posted the video, the WaPo has changed and added tons more on this so-called story.

The fact is, POTUS is allowed to declassify any information he wants to. Clapper, I found after I posted the video, did indeed make a statement and utterly denied the accusations, he stated quite resolutely that POTUS did not divulge classified information. He maintained that Trump only spoke on military movements that is already reported by the media!

The WaPo keeps screwing up. The rest of this article is edited and added on with no mention of them having edited it after posting…..

For almost anyone in government, discussing such matters with an adversary would be illegal. As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law.

White House officials involved in the meeting said Trump discussed only shared concerns about terrorism.

The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organizations to include threats to aviation,” said H.R. McMaster, the national security adviser, who participated in the meeting. “At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed, and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.”

McMaster reiterated his statement in a subsequent appearance at the White House on Monday and described the Washington Post story as “false,” but did not take any questions.

In their statements, White House officials emphasized that Trump had not discussed specific intelligence sources and methods, rather than addressing whether he had disclosed information drawn from sensitive sources.

The CIA declined to comment, and the NSA did not respond to requests for comment.

But officials expressed concern about Trump’s handling of sensitive information as well as his grasp of the potential consequences. Exposure of an intelligence stream that has provided critical insight into the Islamic State, they said, could hinder the United States’ and its allies’ ability to detect future threats.

[On Russia, Trump and his top national security aides seem to be at odds]

It is all kind of shocking,” said a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials. “Trump seems to be very reckless and doesn’t grasp the gravity of the things he’s dealing with, especially when it comes to intelligence and national security. And it’s all clouded because of this problem he has with Russia.”

In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” the president said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.

Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States learned only through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. He did not reveal the specific intelligence-gathering method, but he described how the Islamic State was pursuing elements of a specific plot and how much harm such an attack could cause under varying circumstances. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat.

The Post is withholding most plot details, including the name of the city, at the urging of officials who warned that revealing them would jeopardize important intelligence capabilities.

Everyone knows this stream is very sensitive, and the idea of sharing it at this level of granularity with the Russians is troubling,” said a former senior U.S. counterterrorism official who also worked closely with members of the Trump national security team. He and others spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the subject.

The identification of the location was seen as particularly problematic, officials said, because Russia could use that detail to help identify the U.S. ally or intelligence capability involved. Officials said the capability could be useful for other purposes, possibly providing intelligence on Russia’s presence in Syria. Moscow would be keenly interested in identifying that source and perhaps disrupting it.

[Political chaos in Washington is a return on investment in Moscow]

Russia and the United States both regard the Islamic State as an enemy and share limited information about terrorist threats. But the two nations have competing agendas in Syria, where Moscow has deployed military assets and personnel to support President Bashar al-Assad.

Russia could identify our sources or techniques,” the senior U.S. official said.

A former intelligence official who handled high-level intelligence on Russia said that given the clues Trump provided, “I don’t think that it would be that hard [for Russian spy services] to figure this out.”

At a more fundamental level, the information wasn’t the United States’ to provide to others. Under the rules of espionage, governments — and even individual agencies — are given significant control over whether and how the information they gather is disseminated, even after it has been shared. Violating that practice undercuts trust considered essential to sharing secrets.

The officials declined to identify the ally but said it has previously voiced frustration with Washington’s inability to safeguard sensitive information related to Iraq and Syria.

If that partner learned we’d given this to Russia without their knowledge or asking first, that is a blow to that relationship,” the U.S. official said.

Trump also described measures the United States has taken or is contemplating to counter the threat, including military operations in Iraq and Syria, as well as other steps to tighten security, officials said.

The officials would not discuss details of those measures, but the Department of Homeland Security recently disclosed that it is considering banning laptops and other large electronic devices from carry-on bags on flights between Europe and the United States. The United States and Britain imposed a similar ban in March affecting travelers passing through airports in 10 Muslim-majority countries.

Trump cast the countermeasures in wistful terms. “Can you believe the world we live in today?” he said, according to one official. “Isn’t it crazy?”

Lavrov and Kislyak were also accompanied by aides.

A Russian photographer took photos of part of the session that were released by the Russian state-owned Tass news agency. No U.S. news organization was allowed to attend any part of the meeting.

Senior White House officials appeared to recognize quickly that Trump had overstepped and moved to contain the potential fallout. Thomas P. Bossert, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, placed calls to the directors of the CIA and the NSA, the services most directly involved in the intelligence-sharing arrangement with the partner.

One of Bossert’s subordinates also called for the problematic portion of Trump’s discussion to be stricken from internal memos and for the full transcript to be limited to a small circle of recipients, efforts to prevent sensitive details from being disseminated further or leaked.

White House officials defended Trump. “This story is false,” said Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser for strategy. “The president only discussed the common threats that both countries faced.”

But officials could not explain why staff members nevertheless felt it necessary to alert the CIA and the NSA.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said he would rather comment on the revelations in the Post story after “I know a little bit more about it,” but added: “Obviously, they are in a downward spiral right now and have got to figure out a way to come to grips with all that’s happening. And the shame of it is, there’s a really good national security team in place.”

Corker also said, “The chaos that is being created by the lack of discipline is creating an environment that I think makes — it creates a worrisome environment.”

Trump has repeatedly gone off-script in his dealings with high-ranking foreign officials, most notably in his contentious introductory conversation with the Australian prime minister earlier this year. He has also faced criticism for seemingly lax attention to security at his Florida retreat, Mar-a-Lago, where he appeared to field preliminary reports of a North Korea missile launch in full view of casual diners.

U.S. officials said that the National Security Council continues to prepare multi-page briefings for Trump to guide him through conversations with foreign leaders, but that he has insisted that the guidance be distilled to a single page of bullet points — and often ignores those.

He seems to get in the room or on the phone and just goes with it, and that has big downsides,” the second former official said. “Does he understand what’s classified and what’s not? That’s what worries me.”

Lavrov’s reaction to the Trump disclosures was muted, officials said, calling for the United States to work more closely with Moscow on fighting terrorism.

Kislyak has figured prominently in damaging stories about the Trump administration’s ties to Russia. Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was forced to resign just 24 days into the job over his contacts with Kislyak and his misleading statements about them. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced to recuse himself from matters related to the FBI’s Russia investigation after it was revealed that he had met and spoke with Kislyak, despite denying any contact with Russian officials during his confirmation hearing.

I’m sure Kislyak was able to fire off a good cable back to the Kremlin with all the details” he gleaned from Trump, said the former U.S. official who handled intelligence on Russia.

The White House readout of the meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak made no mention of the discussion of a terrorist threat.

Trump emphasized the need to work together to end the conflict in Syria,” the summary said. The president also “raised Ukraine” and “emphasized his desire to build a better relationship between the United States and Russia.”

WannaCry: What to do if your computer is infected

http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2017/05/wannacry-what-to-do-if-your-computer-is-infected.html

You’d think everyone by now would know not to open attachments in dodgy emails, but the spread of the WannaCry ransomware has proven many still don’t.

Computer security experts have doled out the usual advice – keep your computer’s operating system up to date and ignore emails from strangers. But what can you do if you – or more likely, your parents or grandparents – have a lapse in judgement and fall victim?

Here are a few options you might want to consider – but first, one you definitely shouldn’t.

Pay the hackers off

When WannaCry takes over your computer, it creates encrypted copies of your files, and deletes the originals. That means you can’t use those files until they’re decrypted. Helpfully, the hackers provide a tool for doing just that – you’ve just got to pay US$600.

Do not do this, under any circumstances. It only encourages them, and it’s a waste of your money.

Reset your computer

For the vast majority of viruses, a good old-fashioned reset will set your computer right. I don’t mean turning it off and turning it on again – hackers are bit cleverer than that. I mean literally wiping the hard drive clean and starting with a fresh installation of Windows.

For users of Windows 10, it’s easy – open your settings, go to the ‘update and security’ section, choose ‘recovery’, then ‘reset this PC’. From there you can choose whether to keep your files or go scorched earth, and wipe everything clean – since your files are encrypted, you want the second option.

Now hold on, you’re probably thinking – won’t this delete the very files I’m trying to recover? Yes, yes it will. Only go down this route if you want to nuke WannaCry at all costs, or all your important files are backed up in the cloud – in which case you can re-download them afterwards.

If you’re on an older version of Windows, it’s generally a bit trickier to reset your computer, often involving the original discs (remember those?!). There are plenty of how-to guides on the internet – find a reputable website and follow the instructions, or if you’re not confident, enlist a professional or young person with an interest in ancient tech.

If you want a picture guide on how to reset Windows 10, check out laptopmag.com’s guide here.

Restore your computer to a previous state

If you’re not prepared to wipe everything and start again, recent versions of Windows allow you to roll back the operating system to a previous state. Usually this is used to uninstall an update or app that didn’t quite go right. How-to-Geek has a guide on how to do this on Windows 7, 8 and 10, as does Microsoft.

The problem with WannaCry, however, is that a system restore doesn’t affect files – so even though this might get rid of the malware (though it’s not guaranteed), the files might still be encrypted.

Bleepingcomputer has a short guide on a related, but slightly different trick – how to use system restore to roll back file versions. As the site explained it’s not a guaranteed fix, but worth a shot if your files aren’t backed up anywhere.

Download a tool

A number of sites over the past few days have started offering apps which claim to be able to remove WannaCry.

If you decide to go down this route, proceed with caution – just like you’re not supposed to trust emails from strangers, the same goes for strange websites.

Some apps on offer require payment, others probably won’t work and many are bound to contain viruses of their own. A few Newshub has looked at were so complex, you’d need a pretty advanced level of computer knowledge to safely navigate their installation and operation.

Others might be easy to install, but come with additional apps you never asked for or won’t do the job unless you pay for a licence – and paying up is what we’re trying to avoid here!

If an app is being offered by a known, legitimate software security company – like Symantec, AVG, Sophos for example – you can probably assume it won’t do any harm, even if it doesn’t succeed in eliminating WannaCry. Same goes for popular, trusted anti-malware offerings like MalwareBytes and Spybot.

A number of websites are also offering tools to decrypt files locked up by WannaCry – same advice applies here. Be careful, and don’t do anything you don’t quite understand.

Follow a step-by-step guide

Some websites have guides on how to manually remove WannaCry, but again – proceed with caution.

Though they’re much less likely to deliberately harm your computer than any apps you might download off the internet, it’s very easy to break vital parts of your computer’s operating system if you don’t understand what you’re doing.

For example, many guides Newshub looked at suggested making edits to the Windows registry – if that phrase means nothing to you, it’s best you stay well away.

Here’s a tip Microsoft itself has suggested – disabling the very Windows function, SMBv2, which contained the flaw. Of course, if your version of Windows is up to date with its security patches, this isn’t necessary – the flaw WannaCry exploits was actually fixed back in March.

This site has another step-by-step method you could try that involves booting your computer into what’s called ‘safe mode’.

Again however, none of these methods are likely to decrypt your files – but could stop any more ending up that way.

How to keep your files safe even if you do get infected

You might have heard of something called ‘the cloud’. No, it’s not a literal cloud, or that wavy building on the Auckland waterfront.

In computer terms, the cloud literally just means someone else’s computer – usually thousands and thousands of them, packed into warehouses in cold climates.

If your important files are duplicated in the cloud, then even if your computer gets infected, you can have the peace of mind copies of them are kept safe elsewhere.

So how do you get your files in the cloud? It’s easy – there are plenty of apps to choose from, including Google Drive, Microsoft Onedrive and Dropbox. Most have a free offering, but if you need more storage it usually only costs a few bucks a month.

Many of them work by creating a folder on your computer, and anything that goes into that folder gets uploaded to the cloud, safe and sound in case anything ever happens to your machine. It really is that simple.

But of course, the old advice is still the best – don’t open dodgy emails, resist the urge to click on everything you see on the internet, and it’s unlikely you’ll have problems with ransomware and viruses in the first place.

Good luck!

Several experts highlighted the NSA’s non-disclosure of the underlying vulnerability, and their loss of control over the EternalBlue attack tool that exploited it. Edward Snowden said that if the NSA had “privately disclosed the flaw used to attack hospitals when they found it, not when they lost it, [the attack] may not have happened”.[103] British cybersecurity expert Graham Cluley also sees “some culpability on the part of the U.S. intelligence services”. According to him and others “they could have done something ages ago to get this problem fixed, and they didn’t do it”. He also said that despite obvious uses for such tools to spy on people of interest, they have a duty to protect their countries’ citizens.[104]

Others commented that this attack shows that the practice of intelligence agencies to stockpile exploits for offensive purposes rather than disclosing them for defensive purposes may be problematic.[62] Microsoft president Brad Smith wrote, “Repeatedly, exploits in the hands of governments have leaked into the public domain and caused widespread damage. An equivalent scenario with conventional weapons would be the U.S. military having some of its Tomahawk missiles stolen.”[105][106]

Arne Schönbohm, President of Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) stated that “the current attacks show how vulnerable our digital society is. It’s a wake up call for companies to finally take IT-security [seriously]”.[48]

Adam Segal, director of the digital and cyberspace policy program at the Council on Foreign Relations stated that “the patching and updating systems are broken, basically, in the private sector and in government agencies”.[62] In addition, Segal said that governments’ apparent inability to secure vulnerabilities “opens a lot of questions about backdoors and access to encryption that the government argues it needs from the private sector for security”.[62]

British Prime Minister Theresa May said of the ransomware, “This is not targeted at the NHS. It is an international attack. A number of countries and organizations have been affected.”[107] However, writing in The Guardian, technology expert Charles Arthur said that the effects of the hack were exacerbated by Conservative Party under-funding of the NHS as part of the government’s austerity measures, in particular the Department of Health’s refusal to pay extra to Microsoft to keep protecting outdated Windows XP systems from such attacks.[108] Home secretary Amber Rudd refused to say whether patient data had been backed up, and shadow health secretary Jon Ashworth accused health secretary Jeremy Hunt of refusing to act on a critical note from Microsoft two months previously, as other warnings from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and National Crime Agency.[109] On 14 May 2017 the NCSC updated its latest guidance on dealing with ransomware attacks.[110]

James Scott from the Institute of Critical Infrastructure Technology said that health care sector staff “have no cyber-hygiene training, they click on phishing links all the time. The sad thing is they weren’t backing up their data properly either, so that’s a big problem. They should be doing that all the time.” He also said that “you’re only as strong as your weakest link within your organisation from a cyber-perspective”.[111]

In the attack some see a dramatic demonstration of the value and importance of having good, regular and secure backups, good cybersecurity including isolating critical systems, using appropriate software and having the latest security patches installed.[112][113][114]

Well, it is about time that the MSM has picked up the Seth Rich Story!

Slain DNC staffer had contact with WikiLeaks, investigator says

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/05/16/slain-dnc-staffer-had-contact-with-wikileaks-investigator-says.html

There is tangible evidence on the laptop of a former DNC staffer that confirms he was talking to WikiLeaks prior to his murder, a private investigator suggested Monday.

Seth Rich was killed last July in what authorities have called a robbery gone awry.

But Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide detective and Fox News contributor, is leading a parallel investigation into Rich’s murder.

Wheeler told Fox 5 DC that he believes there is a cover up and the police department may have been told to back down from the investigation.

“The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming,” Wheeler told the station. “They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”

Wheeler added that a source in the D.C. police department “looked him in the eye” and told him that investigators were told to stand down in the case.

Now, that is highly unusual for a murder investigation, especially from a police department,” he said. “Again, I don’t think it comes from the chief’s office, but I do believe there is a correlation between the mayor’s office and the DNC and that is the information that will come out.”

Links between Rich and WikiLeaks was raised when the Julian Assange, the founder of the whistleblowing website, offered a $20,000 reward leading to the arrest of the killers.

Assange also implied in August that Rich was killed because he was the WikiLeaks source of emails from top DNC officials showing they WikiLeaks source of emails from top DNC officials showing they conspired to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. That controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz having to resign as DNC chairperson.

Joel Rich, Seth’s father, downplayed any possible link between his son and the website. He told Fox News in January he believes Seth was killed during a robbery and not because he leaked information.

Security footage showed two men following Rich home moments before he was shot twice in the back. The camera only captured the assailants’ legs. Police said nothing of value was stolen from Rich.

Rich would have had access to sensitive DNC information. His main duty at the DNC was to build an online system to get out the vote. The system, which combines government data, technologies and formats from all 50 states, allows anyone to check if they are registered to vote and, if not, where to register and how.

There is another interesting angle to all this Robbie Young has been in heavy private messages to Guccifer_2 of twitter fame. She has shown that Guccifer 2 had told her that Seth was the name of the source in the DNC. This

Alex, you missed an important fact. 8/25/16 @GUCCIFER_2 sent me a DM saying, “his name is seth, he was my whistleblower”

Planetary harmonies around TRAPPIST-1 save it from destruction, astrophysicists find

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170510115235.htm

When NASA announced its discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 system back in February it caused quite a stir, and with good reason. Three of its seven Earth-sized planets lay in the star’s habitable zone, meaning they may harbour suitable conditions for life.

But one of the major puzzles from the original research describing the system was that it seemed to be unstable.

“If you simulate the system, the planets start crashing into one another in less than a million years,” says Dan Tamayo, a postdoc at U of T Scarborough’s Centre for Planetary Science.

“This may seem like a long time, but it’s really just an astronomical blink of an eye. It would be very lucky for us to discover TRAPPIST-1 right before it fell apart, so there must be a reason why it remains stable.”

Tamayo and his colleagues seem to have found a reason why. In research published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters, they describe the planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system as being in something called a “resonant chain” that can strongly stabilize the system.

In resonant configurations, planets’ orbital periods form ratios of whole numbers. It’s a very technical principle, but a good example is how Neptune orbits the Sun three times in the amount of time it takes Pluto to orbit twice. This is a good thing for Pluto because otherwise it wouldn’t exist. Since the two planets’ orbits intersect, if things were random they would collide, but because of resonance, the locations of the planets relative to one another keeps repeating.

“There’s a rhythmic repeating pattern that ensures the system remains stable over a long period of time,” says Matt Russo, a post-doc at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA) who has been working on creative ways to visualize the system.

TRAPPIST-1 takes this principle to a whole other level with all seven planets being in a chain of resonances. To illustrate this remarkable configuration, Tamayo, Russo and colleague Andrew Santaguida created an animation in which the planets play a piano note every time they pass in front of their host star, and a drum beat every time a planet overtakes its nearest neighbour.

Because the planets’ periods are simple ratios of each other, their motion creates a steady repeating pattern that is similar to how we play music. Simple frequency ratios are also what makes two notes sound pleasing when played together.

Speeding up the planets’ orbital frequencies into the human hearing range produces an astrophysical symphony of sorts, but one that’s playing out more than 40 light years away.

“Most planetary systems are like bands of amateur musicians playing their parts at different speeds,” says Russo. “TRAPPIST-1 is different; it’s a super-group with all seven members synchronizing their parts in nearly perfect time.”

But even synchronized orbits don’t necessarily survive very long, notes Tamayo. For technical reasons, chaos theory also requires precise orbital alignments to ensure systems remain stable. This can explain why the simulations done in the original discovery paper quickly resulted in the planets colliding with one another.

“It’s not that the system is doomed, it’s that stable configurations are very exact,” he says. “We can’t measure all the orbital parameters well enough at the moment, so the simulated systems kept resulting in collisions because the setups weren’t precise.”

In order to overcome this Tamayo and his team looked at the system not as it is today, but how it may have originally formed. When the system was being born out of a disk of gas, the planets should have migrated relative to one another, allowing the system to naturally settle into a stable resonant configuration.

“This means that early on, each planet’s orbit was tuned to make it harmonious with its neighbours, in the same way that instruments are tuned by a band before it begins to play,” says Russo. “That’s why the animation produces such beautiful music.”

The team tested the simulations using the supercomputing cluster at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA) and found that the majority they generated remained stable for as long as they could possibly run it. This was about 100 times longer than it took for the simulations in the original research paper describing TRAPPIST-1 to go berserk.

“It seems somehow poetic that this special configuration that can generate such remarkable music can also be responsible for the system surviving to the present day,” says Tamayo.

Liquid-crystal and bacterial living materials self-organize and move in their own way

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170511165351.htm

Smart glass, transitional lenses and mood rings are not the only things made of liquid crystals; mucus, slug slime and cell membranes also contain them. Now, a team of researchers is trying to better understand how liquid crystals, combined with bacteria, form living materials and how the two interact to organize and move.

“One of the ideas we came up with was materials that live,” said Igor S. Aronson, holder of the Huck Chair and Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry and Mathematics. Living matter, active matter may be self-healing and shape-changing and will convert energy to mechanical motion.”

Liquid-crystal and bacterial living materials self-organize and move in their own way

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170511165351.htm

The living material Aronson is exploring using predictive computational models and experiments is composed of a bacterium — Bacillus subtilis — that can move quickly using its long flagella and a nematic liquid crystal — disodium cromoglycate. Liquid crystals as materials sit somewhere between a liquid and a solid. In this case, the molecules in disodium cromoglycate line up in long parallel rows, but are not fixed in place. Capable of moving, they remain oriented in only one direction unless disturbed.

According to Aronson, this type of liquid crystal closely resembles a straight-plowed field with the ridges the molecules and the furrows the areas in between.

Previously the researchers found that these tiny bacteria in a liquid crystal material can push cargo — tiny particles — through the channels in a liquid crystal and move at four times their body length when in small concentrations, but conservatively, at 20 times their body length when in large numbers.

“An emergent property of the combination of a liquid crystal and bacteria is that at about a 0.1 percent-by-volume bacterial concentration we start to see a collective response from the bacteria,” said Aronson.

This type of living material is not simply a combination of two components, but the two parts create something with unusual optical, physical or electrical properties. However, there is no direct connection between the bacteria and the liquid. The researchers’ computer models showed collective behavior in their system similar to that seen in actual liquid crystal/bacteria combinations.

The predictive computational models for this liquid-crystal bacteria system show a change from straight parallel channels when only a small bacteria population exists, to a more complex, organized, active configuration when bacteria populations are higher. While the patterns are always changing, they tend to form pointer defects — arrow shapes — that serve as traps and concentrate bacteria in an area, and triangle defects that direct bacteria away from the area. Increased bacterial concentration increases the velocity of the bacteria and configurations in areas with higher bacteria population change more rapidly than in areas with fewer bacteria. Aronson and his team looked at actual liquid-crystal living materials in a slightly different way than in the past. They wanted the liquid-crystal thin film to be independent, not touching any surface, so they used a device that created the film — in a way similar to that used to create large soap bubbles — and suspended it away from surface contact. This approach showed patterns of defects in the material’s structure.

Experiments with thin films of liquid crystals and bacteria produced the same results as the computational models, according to the researchers.

Another effect the researchers found was that when oxygen was removed from the system, the action of the living material stopped. Bacillus subtilis is usually found in places with oxygen, but can survive in environments devoid of oxygen. The bacteria in the living material did not die, they simply stopped moving until oxygen was once again present.

The researchers reported in Physical Review X that their “findings suggest novel approaches for trapping and transport of bacteria and synthetic swimmers in anisotropic liquids and extend a scope of tools to control and manipulate microscopic objects in active matter.” Because some biological substances like mucus and cell membranes are sometimes liquid crystals, this research may produce knowledge of how these biological substances interact with bacteria and might provide insight on diseases due to bacterial penetration in mucus.

You Tube sensation of the Underground Resistance Network Robbie Dee and Laurie Alexander

Robbie Dee is an M.C., DJ and promoter in UK Rave scene ( for about 30 years) who 3 years ago woke up to the nightmare which is the new world order. Since waking up decided to go on a quest to find out exactly what it is by going on a journey of total research which included reading the holy bible, The apocrypha and anything related, coming to the realization that the creator of this world truly exists and that the powers that be control this world and have been planning for 6,000 years to enslave mankind under a one world government.

Robbie was invited to join Kev Baker to guest host the Kev Baker Show on Truth Frequency Radio where Robbie cut his teeth on live radio chat for several months until he met up with Laurie Alexander, Christian Eschatologist, Watchman on the Wall and Outspoken Activist against the New World Order. Co-owner Facebook community Exposing Satanic World Government and co- owner Facebook community and you tube channel the Underground Resistance Network. She is Co-host of ‘3 minutes to midnight’ with Robbie, even though they are both the opposite sides of the Atlantic.

They decided to start the YouTube channel and facebook page The underground resistance network., where they broadcast their message to the world on various topics related to the New World Order. The show has been growing in numbers steadily to a quite reasonable 11,000 subs while their Facebook page has jumped to 25,000 up from 14,000 in the last week alone, since they also co-run Exposing Satanic World Government on facebook which it has grown a whopping 90,000 followers and continues to flourish to this day.

Trump Report

Comey is Fired. Stupid Media went to Putin and asked him his thoughts on it. He said that that was a funny question, and turned around and went to play hockey.

Now seriously though, I will cover this under the trump report, only because it proves that he isn’t draining the swamp, but just stirring it.

Comey lost confidence over months, the bi-partisans in congress lost confidence

and the FBI lost confidence. There are so many video clips of those in high government saying they lost confidence in Comey. He actually should have been fired at the inauguration. The President spoke to many of the DNC about the firing before it happened, there was no ‘surprise’. So the media and all acting like this is a scandal is hyperbole.

Now the new Acting Director of the FBI. Andrew McCabe – acting Director is tied to HRC,

his wife received >600G for her campaign donated by McCaulif and Virginia DNC. McCaulif is a long-time friend and money shaker for HRC since back in the 90s.

Check this out:

  • 2015 The Clinton campaign previously had indicated that her personal emails were deleted before Clinton received a congressional subpoena on March 4, 2015. But the FBI said her emails were deleted “between March 25-31, 2015” — three weeks after the subpoena. http://benghazi.house.gov/sites/republicans.benghazi.house.gov/files/Kendall.Clinton%20Subpoena%20-%202015.03.04.pdf
  • Jill and Andrew McCabe meets with Governor Terri McCaulif Va.(who also headed the DNC of Virginia) encourages Dr. Jill to run for State Senate and pledges backing.
  • In the same month, news broke that HRC had servers at her private home while Sec of State.
  • July 2015 Investigation is going on while McCabe had previously served as the Assistant Director in Charge of the Washington, D.C. field office, and became the Associate Deputy Director
  • He was also the part of the executive management team investigating HRC.
  • Jill McCabe did not win the election in 2016, but it is curious that McCabe was promoted twice! in one year!
  • 98% of the Gov. McAuliffe related donations to Dr. McCabe came after the FBI launched the investigation into Secretary Clinton
  • McCabe was part of the group that recommended that Comey NOT take HRC to DOJ about email scandal

Now recall if you will, Attorney General Lorretta Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton on a tarmac.

Now also recall how Bill Clinton speeches that paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by Russia then by no coincidence, HRC Sec. of State, approved the Uranium deal to the Russians.

the pattern of speechy payoffs to spouses, while those in authority are governing or controlling things in upper levels of government in the United States, there is a definite pattern here.

From The New York Whines, I mean Times! Trump Bars U.S. Press, but Not Russia’s, at Meeting With Russian Officials

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/10/us/politics/trump-russia-meeting-american-reporters-blocked.html

WASHINGTON — When President Trump met with top Russian officials in the Oval Office on Wednesday, White House officials barred reporters from witnessing the moment. They apparently preferred to block coverage of the awkwardly timed visit as questions swirled about whether the president had dismissed his F.B.I. director in part to squelch the investigation into possible ties between his campaign and Moscow.

But the Russians, who have a largely state-run media, brought their own press contingent in the form of an official photographer. They quickly filled the vacuum with their own pictures of the meeting with Mr. Trump, Sergey V. Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey I. Kislyak, Moscow’s ambassador to the United States.

Within minutes of the meeting, the Foreign Ministry had posted photographs on Twitter of Mr. Trump and Mr. Lavrov smiling and shaking hands. The Russian embassy posted images of the president grinning and gripping hands with the ambassador. Tass, Russia’s official news agency, released more photographs of the three men laughing together in the Oval Office.

The White House released nothing.

The result was a public relations coup of sorts for Russia and Mr. Lavrov in particular, who not only received a collegial Oval Office welcome from the president, but the photographic evidence to prove it. By contrast, when Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson traveled to Moscow last month, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia kept him waiting for hours before granting him an audience at the Kremlin. Then, too, Mr. Tillerson left his American press contingent behind.

Mr. Kislyak has figured prominently in the furor surrounding the Trump team’s contacts with Moscow. It was conversations between the ambassador and Michael T. Flynn, the president’s former national security adviser, that ultimately led to Mr. Flynn’s ouster in February, ostensibly because he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about whether the two had discussed United States sanctions on Russia. The White House had not divulged that Mr. Kislyak was to be present at Wednesday’s meeting.

Mr. Trump’s session with Mr. Lavrov was listed on his schedule as “Closed Press,” meaning the news media would not have a chance to photograph or otherwise document the meeting. “Our official photographer and their official photographer were present — that’s it,” a White House aide said, speaking on condition of anonymity, lacking authorization to describe the ground rules.

The difference, of course, is that while official White House photographers have broad access to the president, their presence is not considered a substitute for that of independent news media, which routinely request and secure access to official presidential movements and meetings so they can obtain their own images and produce their own reports. In Russia, where the independent news media are severely limited, there is no such regular press access to government officials apart from state-controlled organizations.

On Wednesday morning, when the American press pool was assembled unexpectedly in the West Wing, reporters thought that White House officials might have reconsidered and decided to allow a glimpse of Mr. Trump’s meeting with the Russians after all. But instead, they were allowed into the Oval Office for a few moments to cover another, previously undisclosed meeting: between Mr. Trump and Henry Kissinger, the Nixon administration’s secretary of state.

Former White House officials were left to wonder about the security implications of having allowed a Russian photographer unfettered access to the American president’s office.

Colin H. Kahl, the former national security adviser to Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., took to Twitter to pose what he called a “deadly serious” question: “Was it a good idea to let a Russian gov photographer & all their equipment into the Oval Office?”

David S. Cohen, the former deputy director of the C.I.A. during the Obama administration, responded: “No, it was not.”

[oh really? You mean there was no secret service there? You mean the photographer’s equipment was not thoroughly searched before entrance? Whiny jerks!]

AP Exclusive: Big child webcam sex bust reveals rising abuse

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/05/09/ap-exclusive-big-child-webcam-sex-bust-reveals-rising-abuse.html

MABALACAT, Philippines – Authorities in the Philippines have arrested an American suspected of exploiting dozens of Filipino children using webcams to sell videos, images and livestreams.

David Timothy Deakin’s arrest April 20, and the rescue of two girls, is one of the largest seizures of potentially illicit digital content in the Philippines. Authorities are reviewing about 30 hard drives, as well as numerous computers, to find suspected buyers and victims.

Deakin has been charged with cybercrime, child pornography, child abuse and child trafficking. The 53-year-old suspect originally from Peoria, Illinois, has been in the Philippines since 2000. He told The Associated Press he didn’t make videos of children. Webcam child abuse is increasing rapidly in the Philippines, with a growing pool of pedophile buyers in the U.S. and Europe.

Shocking Connection: 97% of all Terminal Cancer Patients Previously Had This Dental Procedure

http://www.getcancercure.com/shocking-connection-97-of-all-terminal-cancer-patients-previously-had-this-dental-procedure/

Do you have a chronic degenerative disease? If so, have you been told, “It’s all in your head?” Well, that might not be that far from the truth… the root cause of your illness may be in your mouth. There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years. Every day in the United States alone, 41,000 of these dental procedures are performed on patients who believe they are safely and permanently fixing their problem.

What is this dental procedure?

The root canal. More than 25 million root canals are performed every year in this country.

Root-canaled teeth are essentially “dead” teeth that can become silent incubators for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions—many not appearing until decades later.

Most of these toxic teeth feel and look fine for many years, which make their role in systemic disease even harder to trace back.

Sadly, the vast majority of dentists are oblivious to the serious potential health risks they are exposing their patients to, risks that persist for the rest of their patients’ lives. The American Dental Association claims root canals have been proven safe, but they have NO published data or actual research to substantiate this claim.

Fortunately, I had some early mentors like Dr. Tom Stone and Dr. Douglas Cook, who educated me on this issue nearly 20 years ago. Were it not for a brilliant pioneering dentist who, more than a century ago, made the connection between root-canaled teeth and disease, this underlying cause of disease may have remained hidden to this day. The dentist’s name was Weston Price — regarded by many as the greatest dentist of all time.

Weston A. Price: World’s Greatest Dentist

Most dentists would be doing an enormous service to public health if they familiarized themselves with the work of Dr. Weston Pricei. Unfortunately, his work continues to be discounted and suppressed by medical and dental professionals alike.

Dr. Price was a dentist and researcher who traveled the world to study the teeth, bones, and diets of native populations living without the “benefit” of modern food. Around the year 1900, Price had been treating persistent root canal infections and became suspicious that root-canaled teeth always remained infected, in spite of treatments. Then one day, he recommended to a woman, wheelchair bound for six years, to have her root canal tooth extracted, even though it appeared to be fine.

She agreed, so he extracted her tooth and then implanted it under the skin of a rabbit. The rabbit amazingly developed the same crippling arthritis as the woman and died from the infection 10 days later. But the woman, now free of the toxic tooth, immediately recovered from her arthritis and could now walk without even the assistance of a cane.

Price discovered that it’s mechanically impossible to sterilize a root-canaled (e.g. root-filled) tooth.

He then went on to show that many chronic degenerative diseases originate from root-filled teeth—the most frequent being heart and circulatory diseases. He actually found 16 different causative bacterial agents for these conditions. But there were also strong correlations between root-filled teeth and diseases of the joints, brain and nervous system.

Dr. Price went on to write two groundbreaking books in 1922 detailing his research into the link between dental pathology and chronic illness. Unfortunately, his work was deliberately buried for 70 years, until finally one endodontist named George Meinig recognized the importance of Price’s work and sought to expose the truth.

Must-read book on the subject: The Secret Poison in Your Mouth: Banish the Hidden Cause of Cancer, Heart Disease and Arthritis;

Dr. Meinig advances the work of Dr. Price

Dr. Meinig, a native of Chicago, was a captain in the U.S. Army during World War II before moving to Hollywood to become a dentist for the stars. He eventually became one of the founding members of the American Association of Endodontists (root canal specialists).

In the 1990s, he spent 18 months immersed in Dr. Price’s research. In June of 1993, Dr. Meinig published the book Root Canal Cover-Up, which continues to be the most comprehensive reference on this topic today.

What dentists don’t know about the anatomy of your teeth

Your teeth are made of the hardest substances in your body.

In the middle of each tooth is the pulp chamber, a soft living inner structure that houses blood vessels and nerves. Surrounding the pulp chamber is the dentin, which is made of living cells that secrete a hard mineral substance. The outermost and hardest layer of your tooth is the white enamel, which encases the dentin.

The roots of each tooth descend into your jawbone and are held in place by the periodontal ligament. In dental school, dentists are taught that each tooth has one to four major canals. However, there are accessory canals that are never mentioned. Literally miles of them!

Just as your body has large blood vessels that branch down into very small capillaries, each of your teeth has a maze of very tiny tubules that, if stretched out, would extend for three miles. Weston Price identified as many as 75 separate accessory canals in a single central incisor (front tooth). For a more detailed explanation, refer to an article by Hal Huggins, DDS, MS, on the Weston A. Price Foundation website.iii (These images are borrowed from the Huggins article.)

Microscopic organisms regularly move in and around these tubules, like gophers in underground tunnels.

When a dentist performs a root canal, he or she hollows out the tooth, then fills the hollow chamber with a substance (called guttapercha), which cuts off the tooth from its blood supply, so fluid can no longer circulate through the tooth. But the maze of tiny tubules remains. And bacteria, cut off from their food supply, hide out in these tunnels where they are remarkably safe from antibiotics and your own body’s immune defenses.

The root cause of much disease

Under the stresses of oxygen and nutrient deprivation, these formerly friendly organisms morph into stronger, more virulent anaerobes that produce a variety of potent toxins. What were once ordinary, friendly oral bacteria mutate into highly toxic pathogens lurking in the tubules of the dead tooth, just awaiting an opportunity to spread.

No amount of sterilization has been found effective in reaching these tubules — and just about every single root-canaled tooth has been found colonized by these bacteria, especially around the apex and in the periodontal ligament. Oftentimes, the infection extends down into the jawbone where it creates cavitations — areas of necrotic tissue in the jawbone itself.

Cavitations are areas of unhealed bone, often accompanied by pockets of infected tissue and gangrene. Sometimes they form after a tooth extraction (such as a wisdom tooth extraction), but they can also follow a root canal. According to Weston Price Foundation, in the records of 5,000 surgical cavitation cleanings, only two were found healed.

And all of this occurs with few, if any, accompanying symptoms. So you may have an abscessed dead tooth and not know it. This focal infection in the immediate area of the root-canaled tooth is bad enough, but the damage doesn’t stop there.

Root canals can lead to heart, kidney, bone, and brain disease

As long as your immune system remains strong, any bacteria that stray away from the infected tooth are captured and destroyed. But once your immune system is weakened by something like an accident or illness or other trauma, your immune system may be unable to keep the infection in check.

These bacteria can migrate out into surrounding tissues by hitching a ride into your blood stream, where they are transported to new locations to set up camp. The new location can be any organ or gland or tissue.

Dr. Price was able to transfer diseases harbored by humans to rabbits, by implanting fragments of root-canaled teeth, as mentioned above. He found that root canal fragments from a person who had suffered a heart attack, when implanted into a rabbit, would cause a heart attack in the rabbit within a few weeks.

He discovered he could transfer heart disease to the rabbit 100 percent of the time! Other diseases were more than 80 percent transferable by this method. Nearly every chronic degenerative disease has been linked with root canals, including:

HEART DISEASE

KIDNEY DISEASE

ARTHRITIS, JOINT, AND RHEUMATIC DISEASES

NEUROLOGICAL DISEASES (INCLUDING ALS AND MS)

AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES (LUPUS AND MORE)

There may also be a cancer connection. Dr. Robert Jones, a researcher of therelationship between root canals and breast cancer, found an extremely high correlation between root canals and breast cancer.iv He claims to have found the following correlations in a five-year study of 300 breast cancer cases:

-93 PERCENT OF WOMEN WITH BREAST CANCER HAD ROOT CANALS

-7 PERCENT HAD OTHER ORAL PATHOLOGY

-TUMORS, IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES, OCCURRED ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE BODY AS THE ROOT CANAL(S) OR OTHER ORAL PATHOLOGY

Dr. Jones claims that toxins from the bacteria in an infected tooth or jawbone are able to inhibit the proteins that suppress tumor development. A German physician reported similar findings. Dr. Josef Issels reported that, in his 40 years of treating “terminal” cancer patients, 97 percent of his cancer patients had root canals. If these physicians are correct, the cure for cancer may be as simple as having a tooth pulled, then rebuilding your immune system.

Good bugs gone bad

How are these mutant oral bacteria connected with heart disease or arthritis? The ADA and the AAE claim it’s a “myth” that the bacteria found in and around root-canaled teeth can cause diseasev. But they base that on the misguided assumption that the bacteria in these diseased teeth are the SAME as normal bacteria in your mouth — and that’s clearly not the case.

Today, bacteria can be identified using DNA analysis, whether they’re dead or alive, from their telltale DNA signatures.

In a continuation of Dr. Price’s work, the Toxic Element Research Foundation (TERF) used DNA analysis to examine root-canaled teeth, and they found bacterial contamination in 100 percent of the samples tested. They identified 42 different species of anaerobic bacteria in 43 root canal samples. In cavitations, 67 different bacteria were identified among the 85 samples tested, with individual samples housing between 19 to 53 types of bacteria each. The bacteria they found included the following types:

CAPNOCYTOPHAGAOCHRACEA

FUSOBACTERIUMNUCLEATUM

GEMELLAMORBILLORUM

LEPTOTRICHIABUCCALIS

PORPHYROMONASGINGIVALIS

Are these just benign, ordinary mouth bugs? Absolutely not. Four can affect your heart, three can affect your nerves, two can affect your kidneys, two can affect your brain, and one can infect your sinus cavities… so they are anything BUT friendly! (If you want see just how unfriendly they can be, I invite you to investigate the footnotes.)

Approximately 400 percent more bacteria were found in the blood surrounding the root canal tooth than were found in the tooth itself, suggesting the tooth is the incubatorand the periodontal ligament is the food supply. The bone surrounding root-canaled teeth was found even HIGHER in bacterial count… not surprising, since bone is virtual buffet of bacterial nutrients.

Since when is leaving a dead body part IN your body a good idea?

There is no other medical procedure that involves allowing a dead body part to remain in your body. When your appendix dies, it’s removed. If you get frostbite or gangrene on a finger or toe, it is amputated. If a baby dies in utero, the body typically initiates a miscarriage.

Your immune system doesn’t care for dead substances, and just the presence of dead tissue can cause your system to launch an attack, which is another reason to avoid root canals — they leave behind a dead tooth.

Infection, plus the autoimmune rejection reaction, causes more bacteria to collect around the dead tissue. In the case of a root canal, bacteria are given the opportunity to flush into your blood stream every time you bite down.

Why dentists cling to the belief root canals are safe

The ADA rejects Dr. Price’s evidence, claiming root canals are safe, yet they offer no published data or actual research to substantiate their claim. American Heart Association recommends a dose of antibiotics before many routine dental procedures to prevent infective endocarditis (IE) if you have certain heart conditions that predispose you to this type of infection.

So, on the one hand, the ADA acknowledges oral bacteria can make their way from your mouth to your heart and cause a life-threatening infection.

But at the same time, the industry vehemently denies any possibility that these same bacteria—toxic strains KNOWN to be pathogenic to humans — can hide out in your dead root-canaled tooth to be released into your blood stream every time you chew, where they can damage your health in a multitude of ways.

Is this really that large of a leap? Could there be another reason so many dentists, as well as the ADA and the AAE, refuse to admit root canals are dangerous? Well, yes, as a matter of fact, there is. Root canals are the most profitable procedure in dentistry.

What you need to know to AVOID a root canal

I strongly recommend never getting a root canal. Risking your health to preserve a tooth simply doesn’t make sense. Unfortunately, there are many people who’ve already have one. If you have, you should seriously consider having the tooth removed, even if it looks and feels fine.

Remember, as soon as your immune system is compromised, your risk of of developing a serious medical problem increases — and assaults on your immune system are far too frequent in today’s world.

If you have a tooth removed, there are a few options available to you.

1) Partial denture: This is a removable denture, often just called a “partial.” It’s the simplest and least expensive option.

2) Bridge: This is a more permanent fixture resembling a real tooth but is a bit more involved and expensive to build.

3) Implant: This is a permanent artificial tooth, typically titanium, implanted in your gums and jaw. There are some problems with these due to reactions to the metals used. Zirconium is a newer implant material that shows promise for fewer complications.

But just pulling the tooth and inserting some sort of artificial replacement isn’t enough.

Dentists are taught to remove the tooth but leave your periodontal ligament. But as you now know, this ligament can serve as a breeding ground for deadly bacteria. Most experts who’ve studied this recommend removing the ligament, along with one millimeter of the bony socket, in order to drastically reduce your risk of developing an infection from the bacterially infected tissues left behind.

I strongly recommend consulting a biological dentist because they are uniquely trained to do these extractions properly and safely, as well as being adept at removing mercury fillings, if necessary. Their approach to dental care is far more holistic and considers the impact on your entire body — not JUST your mouth.

If you need to find a biological dentist in your area, I recommend visiting toxicteeth.org, a resource sponsored by Consumers for Dental Choice. This organization, championed by Charlie Brown, is a highly reputable organization that has fought to protect and educate consumers so that they can make better-informed decisions about their dental care. The organization also heads up the Campaign for Mercury-Free Dentistry.

Phthalates increase the risk of allergies among children

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170503092926.htm

Phthalates, which are used as plasticizers in plastics, can considerably increase the risk of allergies among children, researchers show. According to this study, an increased risk of children developing allergic asthma exists if the mother has been particularly heavily exposed to phthalates during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The mother-child cohort from the LINA study was the starting and end point of this translational study.

Phthalates, which are used as plasticizers in plastics, can considerably increase the risk of allergies among children. This was demonstrated by UFZ researchers in conjunction with scientists from the University of Leipzig and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in a current study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. According to this study, an increased risk of children developing allergic asthma exists if the mother has been particularly heavily exposed to phthalates during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The mother-child cohort from the LINA study was the starting and end point of this translational study.

In our day-to-day lives, we come into contact with countless plastics containing plasticizers. These plasticizers, which also include the aforementioned phthalates, are used when processing plastics in order to make the products more flexible. Phthalates can enter our bodies through the skin, foodstuffs or respiration. “It is a well-known fact that phthalates affect our hormone system and can thereby have an adverse effect on our metabolism or fertility. But that’s not the end of it,” says UFZ environmental immunologist Dr Tobias Polte. “The results of our current study demonstrate that phthalates also interfere with the immune system and can significantly increase the risk of developing allergies.”

At the outset of the study, the team of UFZ researchers examined the urine of pregnant women from the LINA (lifestyle and environmental factors and their influence on the newborn-allergy-risk) mother-child cohort study and searched for metabolites of phthalates. The concentration level determined in each case was found to correlate with the occurrence of allergic asthma among the children. “There was a clearly discernible relationship between higher concentrations of the metabolite of benzylbutylphthalate (BBP) in the mother’s urine and the presence of allergic asthma in their children,” explains Dr Irina Lehmann, who heads the LINA study.

Researchers were able to confirm the results from the mother-child cohort in the mouse model in collaboration with colleagues from the Medical Faculty at the University of Leipzig. In this process, mice were exposed to a certain phthalate concentration during pregnancy and the lactation period, which led to comparable concentrations of the BBP metabolite in urine to those observed in heavily exposed mothers from the LINA cohort. The offspring demonstrated a clear tendency to develop allergic asthma; even the third generation continued to be affected. Among the adult mice, on the other hand, there were no increased allergic symptoms. “The time factor is therefore decisive: if the organism is exposed to phthalates during the early stages of development, this may have effects on the risk of illness for the two subsequent generations,” explains Polte. “The prenatal development process is thus clearly altered by the phthalate exposure.”

Phthalates turn off regulatory genes

In order to establish precisely what may have been modified, Polte and his team, in collaboration with colleagues from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), took a close look at the genes of the young mice born to exposed mothers. So-called methyl groups were found in the DNA of these genes — and to a greater extent than is usually the case. In the course of this so-called epigenetic modification of the DNA, methyl groups attach themselves to a gene like a kind of padlock and thus prevent its code from being read, meaning that the associated protein cannot be produced. After the researchers treated the mice with a special substance intended to crack the methyl “locks” on the affected genes, the mice demonstrated fewer signs of allergic asthma than before. Dr Polte concludes the following: “Phthalates apparently switch off decisive genes by means of DNA methylation, causing the activity of these genes to be reduced in the young mice.”

But which genes cause allergic asthma if they cannot be read? So-called T-helper 2 cells play a central part in the development of allergies. These are kept in check by special opponents (repressors). If a repressor gene cannot be read as a result of being blocked by methyl groups, the T-helper 2 cells that are conducive to the development of allergies are no longer sufficiently inhibited, meaning that an allergy is likely to develop. “We surmise that this connection is decisive for the development of allergic asthma caused by phthalates,” says Polte. “Furthermore, in the cell experiment, we were able to demonstrate that there is an increased formation of T-helper 2 cells from the immune cells of the offspring of exposed mother mice than is the case for the offspring of non-exposed animals. This enabled us to establish an increased tendency towards allergies once again.”

From humans to mice and back again

In mice, the researchers were able to prove that a repressor gene that has been switched off due to DNA methylation is responsible for the development of allergic asthma. But does this mechanism also play a part in humans? In order to answer this question, the researchers consulted the LINA cohort once more. They searched for the corresponding gene among the children with allergic asthma and studied the degree of methylation and gene activity. Here, too, it became apparent that the gene was blocked by methyl groups and thus could not be read. “Thanks to our translational study approach — which led from humans via the mouse model and cellular culture back to humans again — we have been able to demonstrate that epigenetic modifications are apparently responsible for the fact that children of mothers who had a high exposure to phthalates during pregnancy and breastfeeding have an increased risk of developing allergic asthma,” says Polte. “The objective of our further research will be to understand exactly how specific phthalates give rise to the methylation of genes which are relevant for the development of allergies.”

*ORLANDO, Fla. —

*One thing lawmakers won’t accomplish is the passing of a bill setting up the rules for the expanded sale of medical marijuana.

http://www.wesh.com/article/legislature-fails-to-pass-medical-marijuana-bill/9623654

WESH 2 News political reporter Greg Fox spoke with the man behind Amendment 2.

Local attorney John Morgan, of United for Care, bankrolled the campaign that led to the passage of Amendment 2 last November, with 71 percent of Florida voters voting “yes.”

But House and Senate lawmakers failed to reach a compromise, and now Morgan is threatening to sue the state if it fails to set up rules that enable patients to get this kind of medicine in any form that they want, including a form in which they can smoke it.

“Most people are disgusted with politics and politicians,” Morgan said.

Morgan said the voters who passed Amendment 2 have been cheated by lawmakers, who failed to pass a bill regulating medical marijuana.

“What it should have been about, which was patients and really sick people, but it was profit and money,” Morgan said.

Morgan blames lobbyists for persuading the Senate to cap the initial number of medical cannabis stores at 35. The House wanted more stores and quicker expansion as patient numbers grow. With no compromise, the measure died.

“And the Legislature has been derelict in their duties by not passing and implementing a law because now it goes to the (Florida) Department of Health, which could be a disaster for patients,” state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando, said.

Some of those patients have reacted with outrage at rules being proposed by the health department, which, right now, is not considering allowing medical cannabis to be smoked.

Morgan points out the Amendment bans “smoking medical marijuana in any public place,” clearly indicating a form that can be smoked should be allowed.

If it’s not, he promises to sue the state.

“You don’t need to go to circuit court. You could go to kiddie court to figure out what that means. It means that smoke was anticipated. So if they try to take smoke out, then I will sue, and I will win,” Morgan said.

The health department has until July to create the rules.

As Morgan weighs a possible run for governor next year, a woman he could face in the Democratic primary, former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, blasted Republican lawmakers on Monday and urged them to schedule a special session to discuss medical marijuana.

Vermont is steps away from legalizing marijuana

https://www.rt.com/usa/388024-vermont-steps-away-legalizing-marijuana/

Governor Phil Scott is expected to sign a bill that would make Vermont the first US state to legalize marijuana for recreational use through legislation, rather than a voter initiative. Scott indicated he had concerns about the bill but is “not opposed.”

The legislation was approved by a 79-66 vote on Wednesday and would eliminate penalties for adults 21 years and older, allowing them to possess one ounce or less of the drug beginning in 2018, according to WPTZ.

It also allows for adults 21 years and older to have up to two mature marijuana plants and four immature plants, according to the proposed measure.

However, public consumption and private sales would remain against the law.

The bill was identical to one passed by the Senate that also set up a commission to study the best way to regulate and tax marijuana.

It now on the desk of Republican Governor Phil Scott for consideration. His spokeswoman said he’s not philosophically opposed to legalizing marijuana but must be sure the bill answer certain public safety and health questions.

He’ll review the bill when received to determine if those questions are addressed,” spokeswoman Rebecca Kelley said after the vote, according to AP.

The governor’s office is now reviewing the draft legislation which could take a few weeks.

Before passing the law, lawmakers engaged in an hour long debate on the issue.

This is voting for trouble. We’ve had a lot of problems, and this is only going to make it worse,” said Rep, Ben Joseph, (D-North Hero), according to AP.

Others who oppose the bill say the state already has a heroin crisis.

Three years ago, then governor Peter Shumlin devoted his entire State of the State address to the crisis, focusing attention and resources on the public health problem before it became a nationwide issue. Despite those efforts, the “crisis” is still claiming lives. Figures, obtained by Seven Days, show that 100 Vermonters died from fatal opiate overdoses in 2016.

Supporters argued that marijuana use in the state is already prevalent and passing the law could give the state a say in its regulation, eliminate the black market and possibly increase state revenue.

I would contend it is irresponsible to not get a handle on this issue,” Rep. Susan Buckholz said.

The state legalized medical marijuana use in 2004. In 2013, former Governor Shumlin signed a bill that decriminalized marijuana possession of 1 ounce or less to a civil infraction.

Vermont lawmakers commissioned a Rand Corporation study in 2014, released in 2015, which showed the state could gain between $20 and $75 million a year in tax revenue. The study also noted the taxes could be vulnerable to either federal interference or market competition if a neighboring state were to legalize the drug.

Eight states and the District of Columbia have legalized the recreational use of small amounts of marijuana.

Message for the week: The Constitutional Lighter
by
Jeff Phillips

My lighters tend to disappear due to friends inadvertently snagging them so recently I had to snag one back as I was out. The one I grabbed felt much more comfortable to flick. The grip was simply a lot more traction and just fits my thumb nicely. It was a Bic lighter like [usual] but I assumed it to be an older design or something.

I was at the store the other day and saw a 5-pack of Bic lighters featuring one with the US Constitution printed as its design. Knowing I’d go through them, I bought it. At home I realized comparing them to my more comfortable stolen one, I realize they were in fact the same design. My stolen more comfortable one was merely missing a part that is springy and has to be mashed done in between the two grip wheels before you have traction with them. I realized this was probably a government safety mandate to keep you from accidentally flicking them inside pockets and purses rubbing up against the sides of things.

No sooner than I realized the non comfortable design was an unnecessary government required part, I immediately took the constitution lighter out of the package and began fighting with it via a pair of pliers to remove this unwanted safety spring clip.

This became quite a wrestle. The tyrant spring clip just didn’t want to go away. When I finally managed to get it out of there I had slightly bent this other part up around the flame holder. I bent it back, but its not quite the same as it originally was.

I thought to myself, gee, isn’t that a remarkable symbol of how things actually work in government. The constitution is beautifully simple and comfortable if we would just leave it that way. But after sacrificing the comfort of our liberties for some sort of safety thing, it sure can be a real fight trying to get our liberty back. Along the way our we are scarred and wounded. Things aren’t able to quite get back to exactly what they once were at their fullest. But, its still well worth the effort. We just have to be careful with our freedom so we don’t burn things up accidentally in the end.

Trump Report
White House considering Cindy McCain for State Dept. job: report
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/332005-trump-admin-considering-cindy-mccain-for-state-dept-job-report
The Trump administration is expected to appoint Cindy McCain, the wife of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), to a role in the State Department, The Associated Press reported Thursday.

Which position McCain could step into is not yet clear, though one potential option could be as an ambassador-at-large — a post in which she could focus on a specific issue, such as human trafficking.

The McCains discussed possible choices with President Trump during a dinner at the White House last month, the AP reported.

John McCain, the powerful chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee and 2008 GOP presidential nominee, has been fiercely critical of Trump’s foreign policy and national security operation since before the real estate mogul entered the White House.

He has taken particularly sharp aim at Trump’s proposed “America first” vision of foreign policy, which downplays the U.S. role in state building and foreign military intervention. McCain has also ripped Trump over his friendlier approach to Russia and other adversaries of the U.S.

But as he faces mounting foreign policy challenges in Syria and North Korea, Trump has begun to take a traditional approach to international relations. In recent weeks, Trump has toughened his tone with regards to Russia, a major ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, and has taken a more adversarial stance toward North Korea amid heightened international concerns over Pyongyang’s weapons programs.

By placing Cindy McCain in a senior role in his administration, Trump could deescalate tensions between himself and conservative foreign policy establishment figures, such as McCain and fellow GOP hawk Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.).

Millstone Report:
*900 suspected pedophiles arrested as ‘darknet’ child porn kingpin jailed for 30yrs – Codename: Operation Pacifier
https://www.rt.com/news/387317-pedophile-ring-arrested-playpen/

Nearly 900 members of a global ‘dark web’ pedophile ring sprawling Europe and the Americas have been arrested following a two-year investigation, the FBI and Europol reported after the website’s founder was handed a 30-year jail sentence.

Shedding light on the scope of the operation which is still active, the FBI revealed that in the US alone, 350 arrests were made as part of a wide-ranging investigation into Playpen – a secret website that is being referred to as possibly the biggest child pornography online dump that ever existed.

The arrests and other law enforcement actions related to the investigation were carried out “in countries far and near”, including Turkey, Peru, Chile, Ukraine, Israel and Malaysia, according to the FBI.

Europe accounts for the major share of arrests and convictions with 368 suspects being charged. A total of 870 arrests were made in connection with the case, according to Europol.

Over 300 children who had suffered sexual abuse at the hands of Playpen members have been identified or rescued.

EU Commissioner for the Security Union, Sir Julian King, said “a hugely significant blow has been struck against one of the most heinous of crimes, arguably the worst of all, thanks to the excellent transnational cooperation of Europol with the FBI and US Department of Justice, as well as other law enforcement agencies around the world.”

Playpen’s founder, Steven W. Chase, 58, was sentenced Monday to 30 years behind bars. The site he set up in August 2014 boasted some 150,000 users worldwide until it was taken down by the FBI following a controversial covert operation.

The agency said it had uncovered the site almost immediately after it had been launched but lacked information to trace the location or identity of the site’s owner as it was rooted in the deep web, meaning the site was only accessible through special software such as Tor.

Tor grants anonymity to its users and thereby is often described as a convenient platform for illicit activities, such as selling weapons, drugs or disseminating pornography.

However, Florida-based Chase inadvertently slipped up, revealing his site’s IP address, providing law enforcement with all the necessary leads.

Two of Chase’s aides, Michael Fluckiger and David Browning, both US citizens – who served as administrators of the site – were each jailed for 20 years.

Through a subsequent operation codenamed Operation Pacifier, the FBI succeeded in tracking down hundreds of the site’s users, sending “more than 1,000 leads” to FBI agents as well as to European authorities.

The FBI has been criticized for what it called a “court-approved network investigative technique” used to unearth information about the suspects. It emerged that the agency, with court approval, seized and ran the pedophile website for 13 days in February 2015.

The FBI’s command of the Playpen site enabled the agency to infect over 8,000 users’ computers with malware and hack them. Notably, the site was said to be more efficient and even experienced a boost in audience numbers with the FBI in charge of its content.

Internet privacy experts found the FBI’s handling of the case highly questionable and contrary to privacy laws.

“The warrant here did not identify any particular person to search or seize. Nor did it identify any specific user of the targeted website,” Electronic Frontier Foundation said, calling into question the legality of the FBI’s actions.

However, the head of the European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), Steven Wilson, appeared to defend the controversial practice, saying in a statement that “If we operate with 19th century legal principles then we are unable to effectively tackle crime at the highest level.”

“We need to balance the rights of victims versus the right to privacy,” Wilson argued, praising the cooperation between the US and European law enforcement in the case.

Over 7,000 Bodies May Be Buried Beneath Mississippi University
http://gizmodo.com/over-7-000-bodies-may-be-buried-beneath-mississippi-uni-1795016827

In what sounds like a clichéd horror movie premise, a recent investigation suggests as many as 7,000 bodies are buried across 20 acres at the Mississippi Medical Center Campus—the former site of the state’s first mental institution. Officials at the university now face the grim task of pulling 100-year-old bodies out of the ground for scientific analysis.

From 1855 to 1935, some 35,000 patients were admitted to the Insane Asylum, as it was called. Many of those who died during their stay were buried at the facility’s cemetery. The Insane Asylum was relocated over 80 years ago, and the grounds that hold the deceased now belong to the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Back in 2013, construction workers uncovered 66 coffins on the campus—but this proved to be the tip of the iceberg. When construction began on a parking garage in 2014, ground-penetrating radar revealed the presence of 1,000 coffins. Subsequent surveys revealed a total of 2,000 coffins. Current estimates now place the total number of coffins buried beneath the campus at approximately 7,000.

“We have inherited these patients. We want to show them care and respectful management.”
Officials at the university estimate that it’ll cost about $3,000 to exhume and rebury each body, at a total cost of $21 million. The university is now considering an alternative plan in which it’ll do the work in-house, at a cost of $400,000 per year over the course of eight years. The remains of the 66 patients uncovered in 2013 will be reburied following scientific analysis, but the university says it’ll leave the thousands of other bodies where they lie, and find new locations for its development projects. A memorial would be created to commemorate the remains, along with a visitor’s center and a lab where the bodies, clothing, and coffins will be analyzed. Should the science lab be built, it’ll be the first facility of its kind in the United States.

“It would be a unique resource for Mississippi,” said UM anthropologist Molly Zuckerman in The Clarion Ledger. “It would make Mississippi a national center on historical records relating to health in the pre-modern period, particularly those being institutionalized.”

To get things started, the university has created the Asylum Hill Research Consortium, a group of experts consisting of anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians. It’s hoped that grants will make it possible for outside researchers to join the study.

“We have inherited these patients,” said Ralph Didlake, who oversees UMMC’s Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities, in The Clarion Ledger. “We want to show them care and respectful management.”

A possible research angle would be to extract and study the DNA of all patients exhumed at the Asylum’s cemetery. This would make it possible to identify living family members who may come forward. The university is planning to compile a list of patients and post it online.

Some scientific work has already begun. Researchers at Mississippi State University’s Cobb Institute have been examining the remains of the 66 patients uncovered in 2013. Using genetic sequencing, the scientists have reconstructed oral bacteria from the remains, which can tell a story about each patient’s overall health. Another study is looking into the skeletons’ tooth enamel, which points to nutritional deprivation and other health markers. A third study is investigating the presence of pellagra, a disease caused by Vitamin B deficiency which was very common in the South during the early 20th century.

Prior to the founding of Mississippi’s Insane Asylum, people suffering from mental illnesses were simply thrown into jail cells, or banished to attics. The new facility offered a better place for patients, but conditions remained harsh. Between 1855 and 1877, around one in five patients died during their stay. The institute was expanded after the Civil War, and at its height around 6,000 patients were housed at the facility. In 1935, the Insane Asylum was moved to its current location of the State Hospital at Whitfield.

The discovery of these 7,000-or-so coffins must have come as quite a shock to the university and its students. It’s all very creepy, to be sure, but given the new opportunities for scientific investigation, it might actually be a blessing in disguise.
New research shows illegal levels of arsenic found in baby foods in the UK
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170504161538.htm

In January 2016, the EU imposed a maximum limit of inorganic arsenic on manufacturers in a bid to mitigate associated health risks. Researchers at the Institute for Global Food Security at Queen’s have found that little has changed since this law was passed and that 50 per cent of baby rice food products still contain an illegal level of inorganic arsenic.

Professor Meharg, lead author of the study and Professor of Plant and Soil Sciences at Queen’s, said: “This research has shown direct evidence that babies are exposed to illegal levels of arsenic despite the EU regulation to specifically address this health challenge. Babies are particularly vulnerable to the damaging effects of arsenic that can prevent the healthy development of a baby’s growth, IQ and immune system to name but a few.”

Rice has, typically, ten times more inorganic arsenic than other foods and chronic exposure can cause a range of health problems including developmental problems, heart disease, diabetes and nervous system damage.

As babies are rapidly growing they are at a sensitive stage of development and are known to be more susceptible to the damaging effects of arsenic, which can inhibit their development and cause long-term health problems. Babies and young children under the age of five also eat around three times more food on a body weight basis than adults, which means that, relatively, they have three times greater exposures to inorganic arsenic from the same food item.

The research findings, published in the PLOS ONE journal today, compared the level of arsenic in urine samples among infants who were breast-fed or formula-fed before and after weaning. A higher concentration of arsenic was found in formula-fed infants, particularly among those who were fed non-dairy formulas which includes rice-fortified formulas favoured for infants with dietary requirements such as wheat or dairy intolerance. The weaning process further increased infants’ exposure to arsenic, with babies five times more exposed to arsenic after the weaning process, highlighting the clear link between rice-based baby products and exposure to arsenic.

In this new study, researchers at Queen’s also compared baby food products containing rice before and after the law was passed and discovered that higher levels of arsenic were in fact found in the products since the new regulations were implemented. Nearly 75 per cent of the rice-based products specifically marketed for infants and young children contained more than the standard level of arsenic stipulated by the EU law.

Rice and rice-based products are a popular choice for parents, widely used during weaning, and to feed young children, due to its availability, nutritional value and relatively low allergic potential.

Professor Meharg explained: “Products such as rice-cakes and rice cereals are common in babies’ diets. This study found that almost three-quarters of baby crackers, specifically marketed for children exceeded the maximum amount of arsenic.”

Previous research led by Professor Meharg highlighted how a simple process of percolating rice could remove up to 85 per cent of arsenic. Professor Meharg adds: “Simple measures can be taken to dramatically reduce the arsenic in these products so there is no excuse for manufacturers to be selling baby food products with such harmful levels of this carcinogenic substance.

“Manufacturers should be held accountable for selling products that are not meeting the required EU standard. Companies should publish the levels of arsenic in their products to prevent those with illegal amounts from being sold. This will enable consumers to make an informed decision, aware of any risks associated before consuming products containing arsenic.”

*The liver increases by half during the day
Biologists have discovered how this organ adapts to the cycles of feeding and fasting, and the alternation of day and night
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/05/170504121737.htm

In mammals, the liver plays a pivotal role in metabolism and the elimination of toxins, and reaches its maximum efficiency when they are active and feed. Biologists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, have discovered how this organ adapts to the cycles of feeding and fasting, and the alternation of day and night within 24 hours. The researchers showed in mice that the size of the liver increases by almost half before returning to its initial dimensions, according to the phases of activity and rest. Published in the journal Cell, their study describes the cellular mechanisms of this fluctuation, which disappears when the normal biological rhythm is reversed. The disruption of our circadian clock due to professional constraints or private habits therefore probably has important repercussions on our liver functions.

Mammals have adapted to diurnal and nocturnal rhythms using a central clock located in the brain. The latter, which is resettled every day by the light, synchronizes the subordinate clocks present in most of our cells. In the liver, more than 350 genes involved in metabolism and detoxification are expressed in a circadian fashion, with a biological rhythm of 24 hours. “Many of them are also influenced by the rhythm of food intake and physical activity, and we wanted to understand how the liver adapts to these fluctuations,” says Ueli Schibler, professor emeritus at the Department of Molecular Biology of the UNIGE Faculty of Science.

The liver oscillates, but not the other organs

The mice forage and feed at night, while the day is spent resting. “In rodents following a usual circadian rhythm, we observed that the liver gradually increases during the active phase to reach a peak of more than 40% at the end of the night, and that it returns to its initial size during the day,” notes Flore Sinturel, researcher of the Geneva group and first author of the study.

The cellular mechanisms of this adaptation were discovered in collaboration with scientists from the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences (NIHS) and the University of Lausanne (UNIL) in Switzerland. Researchers have shown that the size of liver cells and their protein content oscillate in a daily manner.

The number of ribosomes, the organelles responsible for producing the proteins required for the various functions of the liver, fluctuates together with the size of the cell. “The latter adapts the production and assembly of new ribosomes to ensure a peak of protein production during the night. The components of ribosomes produced in excess are then identified, labeled, and degraded during the resting phase,” explains Flore Sinturel.

Asynchronous clock genes

The amplitude of the variations observed by the biologists depends on the cycles of feeding and fasting, as well as diurnal and nocturnal phases. Indeed, the fluctuations disappear when the phases of feeding no longer correspond to the biological clock, which evolved in the course of hundreds of millions of years: “the size of the liver and the hepatocytes, as well as their contents in ribosomes and proteins, remain nearly stable when mice are fed during the day. Yet, these animals ingest similar amounts of food, irrespective of whether they are fed during the night or during the day,” points out Frédéric Gachon of the NIHS, who co-directed the study.

Many human subjects no longer live according to the rhythm of their circadian clock, due to night work hours, alternating schedules or frequent international travels. A previous study (Leung et al., Journal of Hepatology, 1986) determining the volume of the human liver during six hours using methods based on ultrasound, suggests that this organ also oscillates within us. If mechanisms similar to those found in mice exist in humans, which is likely to be the case, the deregulation of our biological rhythms would have a considerable influence on hepatic functions.

In a town in between McMinnville and Murphreesboro, Tennessee
*Cannon rehab facilities CLOSED
http://www.cannoncourier.com/cannon-scientology-facilities-closed-cms-16478

MIKE WEST
Courier Editor

A series of rehabilitation facilities have been permanently closed in Cannon County and three suspects charged in the case.

“The Cannon County Sheriff’s Department would like to make the general public of this county aware that the Scientology facilities are closed and not operating in Cannon County,” a statement from the Sheriff’s office said.

Attorney David Veile, representing some of the individuals involved in the case, said the facilities were not operated by the Church of Scientology.

The 16th Judicial District of the state of Tennessee, Cannon County, has charged three suspects in the case. Two of the three, Dennis Flamond and Hans Snyder Lytle, entered guilty pleas in General Sessions Court on two counts of false imprisonment.

The third suspect, Marc Vallieres, was charged with two felony charges of facilitation to kidnapping in Circuit Court. Vallieres pleaded “by information” in Circuit Court.

Circuit Judge David Bragg ruled in this final disposition of the cases that “all facilities in Cannon County are closed and will not operate any resident facilities in Cannon County, TN.”

Faculties were discovered on Sunshine Lane and on Sycamore Creek Road.

A 911 emergency phone call provided the Sheriff’s Office with the opportunity to go inside the facility which they described as a double-wide trailer with several tiny cabins located behind it.

“We proceeded up the hill through a gated, makeshift paddock that is secured externally with a steel latch.” The officers reported the individual who called them was looking out through a Plexiglas window.

“He is locked inside the cabin with no way to remove himself from the building. The caretaker unlocks the door and lets us enter the cabin.

“The cabin is bare there is a small pile of sheets in the corner, there are no obvious amenity for life, ” the officers reported.

The man being held there tells the officers he is being held against his will and is given unknown medications. He explains that he is there to have rehab and get cleansed though Scientology.

“He states that he has been there for nine months and is being mistreated and falsely imprisoned and all he wants is to go home.” the officers said.

The man then shows his room to officers.

“It is a small room with a single bed in it, the bed is bare except for a one sheet that he covers up with, his bathroom is the only room with a light.”

When the officers stepped out of the little cabin, the door is locked back and they return to the double-wide trailer where the caretaker (identified as Dennis Flamond} gives them a history of the person. He also tells them the manager of the facility is currently in Los Angeles undergoing courses. He refuses to give them his contact information.

Cannon County Emergency Medical Service is called and officers to get to speak to the manager who is identified is Hans Snyder Lytle.

“I explained to him that no one on this facility is a licensed healthcare provider and no one here has power of attorney over him so if he feels that he needs to go to the hospital, then he will have to be transported,” Investigator Brandon Gullett said.

After transporting him to the Emergency Room, Gullett and Deputy Turney return to the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department to begin their investigation. Initially, the officers contact the subject’s mother, who lives in Beverly Hills, CA.

“We relay to her the events and she is in disbelief, she has never actually seen the facility and is only aware of the conditions from what is available on the Internet, which is presented in an entirely different manner than actual living conditions. After about approximately 15-20 minutes of explaining what is going on there she believes us, and at the time of our last conversation she was getting a plane ticket the next morning for Tennessee,” Gullett said.

At this point, the officers began to contact all of the appropriate agencies including Adult Protective Services, Sheriff Darrell Young and the District Attorney General. A search warrant is obtained and the hospital is notified about other potential patients.

When officers returned to the address on Sycamore Creek with a search warrant for all of the premises, they discovered that the personnel was in the process of packing up and moving out. The locking mechanism was removed from the front gate.

During the search of the facility, a female patient was discovered. She was transported to Saint Thomas Stones River Hospital and parents notified.

Deputies found the building at 3343 Sycamore Creek road heavily fortified. The officers used a ram to force the door open and several boxes of evidence were discovered, cataloged, photographed and confiscated by Inspector Gullett.

Later in the day, officers discovered Hans Lytle following a search at an address on Cedar Crest Lane. He was taken into custody on multiple charges

*Scientology facilities have been closed after a man alleged he was held against his will
http://www.businessinsider.com/scientology-facilities-in-tennessee-closed-2017-5

Officials said Scientology facilities in Cannon County, Tennessee, were closed this week after a 911 call led police to a man who said he was being held against his will with “no obvious amenity for life,” according to the local newspaper, the Cannon Courier.

“The Scientology facilities are closed and not operating,” said a statement from Cannon County Sheriff’s Department, the Courier reported.

The newspaper also reported that the department got a 911 call that allowed officers to go in the gated facilities, which they described as “a double-wide trailer with several tiny cabins located behind it.”

The man there who made the call told officers he was being held against his will and given unknown medications, according to the Courier. He told officers he was there for rehab and to “get cleansed through Scientology,” the Courier reported. The man told officers he’d been there for nine months.

Officers described the man’s bedroom as “a small room with a single bed in it.” They said the bed was “bare except for one sheet that he covers up with” and that “his bathroom is the only room with a light.”

The man and a woman whom officers found while searching the facilities were taken to a local hospital.

Three suspects have been charged and are in custody. The Courier reports that two of them entered guilty pleas on two counts of false imprisonment. An attorney said the Church of Scientology didn’t operate the facilities.

The Cannon County Sheriff’s Department and the Church of Scientology did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s requests for comment.

This Awesome Periodic Table Tells You How to Actually Use All Those Elements
http://elements.wlonk.com/ElementsTable.htm

Thanks to high school, we’ve all got a pretty good idea about what’s on the periodic table.

But whether you’re looking at something common like calcium, iron, and carbon, or something more obscure like krypton and antimony, how well do you know their functions? Could you name just one practical application for vanadium or ruthenium?

Lucky for us, Keith Enevoldsen from elements.wlonk.com has come up with this awesome periodic table that gives you at least one example for every single element (except for those weird superheavy elements that don’t actually exist in nature).

There’s thulium for laser eye surgery, cerium for lighter flints, and krypton for flashlights. You’ve got strontium for fireworks, and xenon for high-intensity lamps inside lighthouses.

Oh and that very patriotic element, americium? We use that in smoke detectors.

First unveiled in 1945 during the Manhattan Project, americium is produced by bombarding plutonium with neutrons in a nuclear reactor.

The resulting americium is radioactive, and while the tiny amounts of americium dioxide (AmO2) used in smoke detector produces alpha radiation to sniff out a fire, it will deliver approximately zero radiation to anyone living nearby.

I kinda want to tell you all about rubidium and how we use it in the world’s most accurate time-keeping devices, and how niobium can help make trains levitate, but you should just check out the periodic table for yourself.
UK Government Planning to Ban Encryption, Spy on All Communications in Real Time
https://sputniknews.com/europe/201705051053318433-uk-leaked-snooping-blueprint/
A leaked document reveals the UK government has drawn up yet further, disturbingly dystopian draft bulk surveillance powers, which would give authorities carte blanche to monitor citizens’ live communications, and effectively illegalize encryption. A cybersecurity expert told Sputnik this has terrifying implications not merely for internet privacy.

The draft, produced by private consultation, was leaked to the Open Rights Group. It details rules that would fall under Section 267(3)(i) of the Investigatory Powers Act.

The rules would compel all communications companies — including phone networks and ISPs — to provide real-time access to any named individual’s full content within a single working day, as well as any “secondary data” related to that individual, including encrypted content.

This means UK organizations will be precluded from introducing true end-to-end encryption of user data, and legally required to introduce backdoors to their systems, so authorities can monitor any and all communications. Such ease of access was demanded by Home Secretary Amber Rudd in the wake of the March 22 Westminster terrorist attack.

In addition, communication firms would be required to facilitate bulk surveillance by introducing systems capable of providing real-time interception of 1 in 10,000 customers — in essence, the government would be capable of spying on 6,500 individuals simultaneously.

“[Communications companies must] provide and maintain the capability to disclose, where practicable, the content of communications or secondary data in an intelligible form and to remove electronic protection applied by or on behalf of the telecommunications operator to the communications or data,” the document states.

There are mild safeguards in the proposals, which would theoretically prevent unchecked use and abuse of the powers. Live surveillance would require authorization from the Home and Justice Secretaries, and a judge appointed by the Prime Minister.

While still at draft level, the technical capability notices paper has already been circulated to communications firms as part of a four-week consultation process, and passed through the UK’s Technical Advisory Board, comprised of six telecom company representatives (O2, BT, BSkyB, Cable and Wireless, Vodafone and Virgin Media), six representatives of the UK’s intercepting agencies, and a board chair.

This means the contents have already been largely agreed to by the bulk of the organizations included in the private consultation, which ends May 19. It remains uncertain whether the Home Office will open up the consultation to the public, or simply forward the document to parliament for formal rubber stamping without external review. Concerned readers may wish to email the UK government directly.

Alex Walker, chief technology officer at UK cybersecurity firm Hook.ee, notes a particularly horrifying portion of the paper, covering requirements for postal operators, would allow the government to “open, copy and reseal any postal item.”

“It makes me feel sick. The utter ignorance of the people making the decisions is abhorrent. Such measures move beyond the web to encompass the masses — this is blatant Stasi levels of spying. It isn’t about the web anymore, this is 100 percent mass surveillance,” Mr. Walker told Sputnik.

Despite his nausea, Mr. Walker finds the government’s attempts to illegalize encryption somewhat mirthful. He notes that until the 1970s, information was often encrypted by hand — written down according to a set of rules, designed to make information unreadable to anyone who did not possess the necessary “key.” Such ciphers were genuinely unbreakable.

“Are the government going to stop people doing encryption by hand now? Encryption is indistinguishable from random gibberish — and there’s no way of proving if a code is one or the other. It’s impossible to uphold such stupidity. The obvious result of banning encryption would be to shift more and more communications over to the dark web, anyway,” he concluded.

Public Service announcement:

If anyone doesn’t know or hasn’t heard: If you are drinking beverages that have all those artificial sweeteners like aspartame and such, in them, and you are experiencing those inflammation, breathing difficulties, inexplicable mood swings, or like symptoms, stop drinking the sweeteners.

Aspartame and all those artificial sweeteners are toxic. I still cannot believe that they haven’t been banned, that people still are drinking this stuff, and most shocking, people out there still don’t know about this. So if you can hear me, please stop drinking that toxic brew.

There are natural things that work. Honey, stevia, NOT TRUVIA!,

Note that there are many ‘food products’ that also have those substances that end with ‘ose’ and such, those are bad for you. I will continue working on getting more information to you, and with documentation, as I find it.

FACEBOOK STEPS UP SECURITY TO SUPPRESS ‘FAKE NEWS’ IN UK ELECTION CAMPAIGN
https://en.news-front.info/2017/05/08/facebook-steps-up-security-to-suppress-fake-news-in-uk-election-campaign/

Social media giant Facebook, which has over 30 million users in the UK, is to step up security and crack down on unauthenticated accounts to prevent to the spread of “fake news” in the run-up to the UK general election, June 8.
Facebook has joined forces with FullFact to monitor accounts and news stories to “live fact check” posts on user accounts.

“In recent years, we’ve continued to make progress in these areas. We made it significantly more difficult for people to sell fake likes on Facebook, and developed sophisticated systems to help block automated programs (or ‘bots’) from trying to create fake accounts,” said Shabnam Shaik, a Technical Program Manager on the Facebook Protect and Care Team.

​”Overall, our security systems run in the background millions of times per second to help block suspicious activity. By constantly improving our techniques, we also aim to reduce the financial incentives for spammers who rely on distribution to make their efforts worthwhile. But we know we have to keep getting better,” she said.

“These changes help us detect fake accounts on our service more effectively — including ones that are hard to spot. We’ve made improvements to recognize these inauthentic accounts more easily by identifying patterns of activity — without assessing the content itself. For example, our systems may detect repeated posting of the same content, or an increase in messages sent.”

The FullFact website says that “fake news” stories often have catchy headlines in all caps with exclamation points. “If shocking claims in the headline sound unbelievable, they probably are,” the site states.

“False news stories often contain manipulated images or videos. Sometimes the photo may be authentic, but taken out of context. You can search for the photo or image to verify where it came from,” the website says.

“With these changes, we expect we will also reduce the spread of material generated through inauthentic activity, including spam, misinformation, or other deceptive content that is often shared by creators of fake accounts,” a Facebook spokesman told the London Guardian newspaper.

ADDRESSING TRADE AGREEMENT VIOLATIONS AND ABUSES

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/05/01/presidential-executive-order-addressing-trade-agreement-violations-and

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Every trade agreement and investment agreement entered into by the United States, and all trade relations and trade preference programs of the United States, should enhance our economic growth, contribute favorably to our balance of trade, and strengthen the American manufacturing base. Many United States free trade agreements, investment agreements, and trade relations have failed, in whole or in part, to meet these criteria. The result has been large and persistent trade deficits, a lack of reciprocal treatment of American goods and investment, the offshoring of factories and jobs, the loss of American intellectual property and reduced technological innovation, downward pressure on wage and income growth, and an impaired tax base. It is the policy of the United States to negotiate new trade agreements, investment agreements, and trade relations that benefit American workers and domestic manufacturers, farmers, and ranchers; protect our intellectual property; and encourage domestic research and development. It is also the policy of the United States to renegotiate or terminate any existing trade agreement, investment agreement, or trade relation that, on net, harms the United States economy, United States businesses, United States intellectual property rights and innovation rate, or the American people.

Sec. 2. Conduct Performance Reviews. The Secretary of Commerce and the United States Trade Representative (USTR), in consultation with the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Attorney General, and the Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, shall conduct comprehensive performance reviews of:

(a) all bilateral, plurilateral, and multilateral trade agreements and investment agreements to which the United States is a party; and

(b) all trade relations with countries governed by the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO) with which the United States does not have free trade agreements but with which the United States runs significant trade deficits in goods.

Sec. 3. Report of Violations and Abuses. (a) Each performance review shall be submitted to the President by the Secretary of Commerce and the USTR within 180 days of the date of this order and shall identify:

(i) those violations or abuses of any United States trade agreement, investment agreement, WTO rule governing any trade relation under the WTO, or trade preference program that are harming American workers or domestic manufacturers, farmers, or ranchers; harming our intellectual property rights; reducing our rate of innovation; or impairing domestic research and development;

(ii) unfair treatment by trade and investment partners that is harming American workers or domestic manufacturers, farmers, or ranchers; harming our intellectual property rights; reducing our rate of innovation; or impairing domestic research and development;

(iii) instances where a trade agreement, investment agreement, trade relation, or trade preference program has failed with regard to such factors as predicted new jobs created, favorable effects on the trade balance, expanded market access, lowered trade barriers, or increased United States exports; and

(iv) lawful and appropriate actions to remedy or correct deficiencies identified pursuant to subsections (a)(i) through (a)(iii) of this section.

(b) The findings of the performance reviews required by this order shall help guide United States trade policy and trade negotiations.

Sec. 4. Remedy of Trade Violations and Abuses. The Secretary of Commerce, the USTR, and other heads of executive departments and agencies, as appropriate, shall take every appropriate and lawful action to address violations of trade law, abuses of trade law, or instances of unfair treatment.

Trump to visit Israel, Saudi Arabia during 1st trip abroad – official

Donald Trump’s first foreign trip as US president will include Israel, the Vatican and Saudi Arabia, a senior administration official said on Thursday. Trump will also attend a NATO meeting in Brussels on May 25 and the Group of Seven summit in Sicily on May 26, the official said. Politico first reported the trip.

Cherokee Nation sues top drug distributors for ‘opioid diversion’.

https://www.rt.com/usa/385512-cherokee-opioid-lawsuit-distributors/

A Native American tribe is suing the six largest drug distributors and pharmacies in the country, charging the companies with flooding their community with hundreds of millions of highly addictive pain pills.

Lawyers for the Cherokee Nation filed a lawsuit on Thursday against the three largest drug distributors – McKesson Corporation, Cardinal Health and AmerisourceBergen – which control 85 to 90 percent of all prescription drug distribution in the country.

The suit also charges three of the largest retail drug distributors and pharmacies – CVS, Walgreens and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. – for failing to prevent the diversion of opioid drugs to the black market, profiting from the opioid epidemic, and decimating 14 counties in northeast Oklahoma that comprise the Cherokee Nation.

The defendants will need to answer for turning a blind eye to the grave harm they are causing individuals, their families and communities, which are left to pick up the pieces,” Richard Fields, a lawyer hired by the Cherokee Nation, said in a press release.

The lawyers argue distributors knew or should have known they were facilitating the opioid epidemic. They cite how the industry ignored guidance from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on how to identify “red flags,” monitor suspicious opioid orders, and properly report diversion.

These defendants really had the ability to limit the number of deaths and the level of addiction if they just followed the law,” said Fields, according to the Washington Post.

The lawsuit also claims distributors broke federal due diligence laws by allowing “opioid diversion” to occur. Opioid diversion happens when the supply chain is broken by distributors who fill orders that are suddenly thousands of pills above the average or larger than the population of the area. The supply chain can also be broken at the pharmacy level by pharmacists who fill illegitimate prescriptions, allow drugs to be lost or stolen or ignore other “red flags.”

They enabled prescription opioids to fall into illicit distribution channels, failed to alert regulators of extreme volume, and incentivized sales of these drugs with financial bonuses,” Todd Hembree, the Cherokee Nation Attorney General, said in the press release.

In 2015, the lawsuit claims an estimated 845 million milligrams of opioids were distributed in the 14 counties that comprise the Cherokee Nation. That averages out to 703 milligrams for every member of the Cherokee Nation within those counties or an estimated 7,200 milligrams a year for every prescription opioid user.

As drugs flooded into the community, the overdose rate among prescription opioid users quadrupled during the last 20 years. Between 2003 and 2014 there were more than 350 opioid related deaths within the Cherokee Nation, which is “significantly higher” than the rest of the nation. Now, the lawsuit claims, more adults in the Cherokee Nation die from overdoses than car accidents.

Meanwhile, the companies profited an estimated $378.4 billion in 2015, according to the lawsuit.

Their main goal is profit, and this scourge has cost lives and the Cherokee Nation millions,” said Todd Hembree, attorney general for the Cherokees, according to the Washington Post.

This marks the first time an Indian nation has filed a suit against opioid distributors for damaging the community. Lawyers claim that the lawsuit is “the Cherokee Nation’s only remaining weapon to fight against the worsening opioid abuse epidemic that Defendants have caused in the Cherokee Nation.”

Lawyers are seeking to hold the companies responsible for perpetuating the opioid crisis. They also hope to gain access to internal records that could prove the companies “Knowingly or negligently distributed and dispensed prescription opioid drugs” and purposefully “created an environment in which drug diversion can flourish.”

Tribal nations have survived disease, removal from our homelands, termination and other adversities, and still we prospered. However, I fear the opioid epidemic is emerging as the next great challenge of our modern era,” Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker said in the press release.

As we fight this epidemic in our hospitals, our schools and our Cherokee homes, we will also use our legal system to make sure the companies, who put profits over people while our society is crippled by this epidemic, are held responsible for their actions,” Baker said.

SCOTUS says Colorado must refund exonerated defendants

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-court-restitution-idUSKBN17L2CC

The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down a Colorado law that allowed the state to keep fees and restitution paid by criminal defendants even when their convictions are overturned, calling it an unconstitutional violation of their rights.

The court sided with two people whose sexual assault convictions were thrown out. The justices ruled 7-1 that a 2013 Colorado law called the Exoneration Act, which forced cleared defendants to prove their innocence in a subsequent lawsuit before getting back money paid to the state after conviction, violated the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of due process.

Writing for the court, liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg criticized the Colorado policy of keeping exonerated defendants’ money because at that point they are once again presumed to be innocent.

“Colorado may not presume a person, adjudged guilty of no crime, nonetheless guilty enough for monetary exactions,” Ginsburg wrote.

Shortly after January oral arguments in the case, Colorado officials proposed a bill in the state legislature to fall in line with other states and make it easier to recoup conviction-related penalties. The bill passed last month and takes effect in September.

The case involved two convicted defendants who were later exonerated. Shannon Nelson was found guilty in 2006 in Arapahoe County of incest and abuse of her four children. She was given a 20-year prison sentence and ordered to pay more than $8,100 in court costs, fees and restitution.

Her conviction was overturned due to trial error, and she was acquitted after a retrial. Nelson’s brother and his wife meanwhile were convicted of sexually assaulting the children.

Louis Alonzo Madden was convicted in La Plata County in 2005 after he allegedly propositioned a 14-year-old girl who was a passenger on the trolley he was driving, then pinned her against a window and sexually assaulted her, according to court papers. He was given prison time and more than $4,400 in related fees and restitution. His convictions were later set aside.

Both defendants’ bids to get back money they had paid failed in 2015 when the Colorado Supreme Court said it could authorize repayment only if they sued under the Exoneration Act, which was meant to compensate the wrongfully convicted.

They appealed, and the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Colorado’s argument that the funds belonged to the state because the convictions were in place when the funds were taken. Conservative Justice Clarence Thomas was the lone dissenter.

Only eight of the nine justices took part in the ruling because the case was argued before Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court on April 10.

A “World First” Fusion Reactor Just Created Its First Plasma

https://futurism.com/a-world-first-fusion-reactor-just-created-its-first-plasma/

ACHIEVING FIRST PLASMA

After being turned on for the first time, the UK’s newest fusion reactor has achieved first plasma. This simply means that the reactor was able to successfully generate a molten mass of electrically-charged gas — plasma — inside its core.

Called the ST40, the reactor was constructed by Tokamak Energy, one of the leading private fusion energy companies in the world. The company was founded in 2009 with the express purpose of designing and developing small fusion reactors to introduce fusion power into the grid by 2030.

Now that the ST40 is running, the company will commission and install the complete set of magnetic coils needed to reach fusion temperatures. The ST40 should be creating a plasma temperature as hot as the center of the Sun — 15 million degrees Celsius (27 million degrees Fahrenheit) — by Autumn 2017.

By 2018, the ST40 will produce plasma temperatures of 100 million degrees Celsius (180 million degrees Fahrenheit), another record-breaker for a privately owned and funded fusion reactor. That temperature threshold is important, as it is the minimum temperature for inducing the controlled fusion reaction. Assuming the ST40 succeeds, it will prove that its novel design can produce commercially viable fusion power.

Tokamak Energy CEO David Kingham commented in a press release: “Today is an important day for fusion energy development in the UK, and the world. We are unveiling the first world-class controlled fusion device to have been designed, built, and operated by a private venture. The ST40 is a machine that will show fusion temperatures – 100 million degrees – are possible in compact, cost-effective reactors. This will allow fusion power to be achieved in years, not decades.”

FUSION POWER: COMING SOONER

Nuclear fusion is a potentially revolutionary power source. It is the same process that fuels stars like our Sun, and could produce a potentially limitless supply of clean energy without producing dirty waste or any significant amount of carbon emissions. In contrast to nuclear fission, the atom splitting that today’s nuclear reactors engage in, nuclear fusion requires salt and water, and involves fusing atoms together. Its primary waste product is helium. It’s easy to see why scientists have tried to figure out how to achieve this here on Earth, but thus far it’s been elusive.

The journey toward fusion energy undertaken by Tokamak Energy is planned in the short-term and moving quickly; the company has already achieved its half-way goal for fusion power delivery. Their ultimate targets include producing the first electricity using the ST40 by 2025 and producing commercially viable fusion power by 2030.

Kingham remarked in the press release: “We will still need significant investment, many academic and industrial collaborations, dedicated and creative engineers and scientists, and an excellent supply chain. Our approach continues to be to break the journey down into a series of engineering challenges, raising additional investment on reaching each new milestone.”

Shingles Vaccine Dangers Exposed In FDA Letter to Merck

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/shingles-vaccine-dangers-exposed-fda-letter-merck

Written By: Anne Dachel

The CDC claims the shingles vaccine is safe, but a letter the FDA wote to Merck paints a different picture.

I recently wrote about the news of a suit against Merck over damage from the shingles vaccine. There are claims of serious side effects, including death associated with this vaccine.

The Zostavax vaccine is recommended for every adult “fifty years of age and older” in the Merck TV ad, yet the CDC says “people 60 years of age or older should get shingles vaccine.” [1]

On the CDC website it also states that the shingles vaccine is safe. “No serious problems have been identified with shingles vaccine.”

Despite the CDC claim that the shingles vaccine carries no real risks, the FDA wrote to Merck in February 2016 telling them to add, ‘Eye Disorders: necrotizing retinitis (patients on immunosuppressive therapy)’ to their product information.’ [2]

KP Stoller, a physician in San Francisco and author of the book, Incurable Me (Skyhorse 2016), is a strong critic of the current vaccine program because of its lack of safety science and oversight. He has coined the word Adversonomics to describe this neglected area of vaccinology. I asked him about the safety of this vaccine.

Q. Dr. Stoller, what concerns do you have about the way this vaccine is being sold to the public, especially with regard to what Merck says about it in their product information sheet? [3]

A. There is ZERO credible safety data on “vaccines” [defined as (adjuvants etc. + antigen)] when there are no saline vs. vaccine comparisons have been done. Vaccines are not tested for safety against a saline placebo, they are tested against a solution that contains all the adjuvants, metals, DNA, and other toxins etc. but just minus the infectious disease antigen itself – in this case the varicella virus. So, the safety data and adverse event data Merck cites in their package insert does not have a lot of meaning.

It would be the same as if Monsanto tested RoundUp for safety and compared it not to water but to RoundUp sans Glyphosate (the reported active ingredient). Even without Glyphosate, RoundUp is very toxic… one of the ingredients is 10,000 times more toxic than Glyphosate itself. Would comparing those two substances RoundUp with Glyphosate vs RoundUp without Glyphosate be a fair comparison for safety purposes?

Yet that is exactly what the vaccine manufacturers are allowed to pass off as an adequate safety comparison. RoundUp without Glyphosate isn’t anymore a placebo than the varicella vaccine without the varicella.

Q. What is the connection between the live virus chicken pox vaccine, now universally recommended for every child, and shingles in the adult population, which Merck claims will affect one in three adults in their lifetime.?

A. It has been two decades since the USA implemented Universal Varicella (Chicken Pox) vaccination. And we now know a whole lot more information about what this program has caused because what happened when children are no longer circulating wild Chicken pox virus (varicella or VZV) in the population is that adults who once had VZV as children but were unable to eradicate the virus completely from their bodies are no longer exposed to the wild virus and their own immunity drops.

When these adults lose their immunity to the virus, it comes out of its hiding places (the body’s dorsal-root ganglia) and that adult develops herpes zoster (HZ). Before VZV vaccination there were about 4 million cases per year and 1 million cases of HZ. Fifty children would die each year from complications (90 people die each year from lightening sticks just as a point of reference).

Now, initially the vaccine was found to be very effective but that was because not everyone was vaccinated so those that were vaccinated kept getting their vaccine induced immunity boosted by the wild virus just like the adults were keeping the HZ at bay for the same reason. Ten years after its introduction the efficacy of the vaccine had dropped to less than 60%, because there were almost no unvaccinated kids circulating the wild virus. At the same time HZ cases among adults went up 90%.

Big Pharma’s ever ready answer was to vaccinate the adults to replace the natural immune boosting presence of circulating wild virus.

The cost of vaccinating adults with a VZV vaccine to achieve protection close to that which occurs naturally when VZV incidence could cost as much as $40 billion dollars – that is a lot a chicken scratch to Big Pharma for a vaccine that wasn’t really needed in the first place.

Essentially, the VZV vaccine shifted the disease from children to an older age group and the vaccine lost efficacy in the childhood age group as well for the same reason – vaccinated children benefited from exposure to their peers who caught wild chicken pox.

In other words, while it would not be in Big Pharma’s interest to let kids opt out of the VZV vaccine it would benefit those who did get vaccinated if there were a lot of other kids who weren’t vaccinated.

But to Big Pharma this isn’t about disease control this is about money only. The cost-benefit of universal VZV vaccination needs to take into account the risk of off-setting the natural balance that results in continual disease and expensive remediation’s for illnesses that would never have taken place without the vaccination being given in the first place. With the meningitis vaccine is it worth killing three children and making 1000 more seriously ill to prevent one case of the disease?

This is a perfect example to demonstrate that vaccinology is far more nuanced than physicians and the public understand. It is not that vaccines are bad, it is you don’t force them on everyone, because you end up working against public health interests. The goal should not be to vaccinate everyone, the goal should be to protect the public health and in this case we get better disease control if everyone isn’t vaccinated. Additionally, most people think that most vaccines control the spread of disease, but they don’t. Many control how sick any one person gets should they come down with the disease, but the vaccine does not control the spread of that disease.

This is just not information Big Pharma wants politicians and the public to know. They want to sell their vaccines to everyone and many times over and over… it is all about the money to them. The IPV vaccine for polio is not capable of stopping the spread of polio, so why force it on the population? I could keep listing examples, but I think I made my point.

Q. Merck now faces mounting complaints of injuries and a lawsuit over damage from the shingles vaccine. How does the Zostavax controversy relate to the claim that our mandated childhood schedule is linked to epidemic increases in autoimmune disorders and autism in our kids?

A. The simple answer is vaccines set off autoimmune reactions in many who receive them – some vaccines more than others and some people are more vulnerable than others because of the makeup of their HLA genes, for example. That would be the area where Adversonomics concerns itself with.

The public doesn’t hear about all the weird and often tragic reactions to vaccines because you can’t sue anyone if you have a bad vaccine reaction.

The public is hearing about Zostavax lawsuits because that vaccine is currently not protected by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) created the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, provides a legal mechanism for determining whether vaccine injuries for covered vaccines should be compensated; albeit, an unfair and dysfunctional mechanism. To be a covered vaccine for which compensation is available under the VICP a vaccine must be added to the vaccine Table either by legislation or through administrative rule making by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This applies to all vaccines, whether for adults or childhood. While the NCVIA includes the term “Childhood” in its title, this is misleading as adult vaccines may be covered under the Vaccine Act. In fact, in recent years most cases that have been compensated have been filed by adults, primarily due to the increased number of doses of the flu shot that have been administered, mostly to adults.

Zostavax is NOT a covered vaccine under the NCVIA and, therefore, cannot be subject to a claim for compensation for vaccine injury under the VICP. The vaccine could be covered under NCVIA, but it is not yet…that could change.

The herpes zoster vaccine that is covered under NCVIA/VICP is Varivax, or varicella, also manufactured by Merck. As you know, this is the vaccine that is included in the ACIP/CDC recommended childhood vaccine schedule. (Usually, but not always, when ACIP recommends a vaccine, steps are taken to add the vaccine to the NCVIA/VICP Table of covered vaccines.) Both Varivax and Zostavax are diploid human cell line manufactured vaccines, manufactured using the MRC-5 (Medical Research Council cell strain 5) cell line. The Varivax has been shown to contain human DNA contamination. Zostavax also likely contains human DNA contamination. It has been theorized that the DNA contamination can cause injury by either DNA insertion or by provoking autoimmunity, although this theory is controversial and unaccepted to date in science or legal venues. There is an Omnibus proceeding pending in the VICP in which claimants allege that the diploid human cell line vaccines cause autism.

Thank you to Dr. Stoller for this explanation.

I also contacted Robert Krakow for a response. He was one of the principle authors of “Unanswered Questions”, the revelation in 2011 that our federal government had for years been compensating children for vaccine injuries that included autism, and he is a former prosecutor who now specializes in vaccine injury cases.

This is what he had to say about Zostavax.

Given the obvious risk of serious injury from the Zostavax vaccine, any person over 50 should proceed with caution regarding the commercially promoted recommendation to get this vaccine. While shingles can sometimes be serious in rare cases, my view is that efforts to maintain good health and a strong immune system will serve us better than obtaining this vaccine, which has the undeniable risk of serious injury. There are almost 5000 reports of adverse events after Zostavax. The vaccine contains substances that can provoke autoimmunity, including human DNA contamination, gelatin, neomycin and other problematic substances. As with many other vaccines, I am not convinced that the vaccine or its components have been properly tested.

The promotion of Zostavax on television and other places is as irresponsible as it is inappropriate. The value of the vaccine is overstated, while the risk of adverse reactions is downplayed. This skews the benefit/cost analysis that all of us must employ when we individually decide to take any vaccine or drug.

The result of all this is that an individual’s right to make informed decisions about his or her health is being overridden by bloated claims of efficacy and safety coupled with risks that are hidden from view. Because of misinformation, our informed consent is, effectively, being overridden. This is not an acceptable situation for any American.

Our emerging experience with Zostavax mirrors our experience with childhood vaccines. Benefits are exaggerated while risk is minimized, all in the context of relentless promotion. The difference with Zostavax is that we can more easily see when injury occurs as compared with developmental injuries that are difficult to recognize and diagnose, and are often confused with unrelated disorders. The result is the same for both adults and children: unnecessary injury and suffering, often lifelong.

It is the policy of our nation that vaccine injuries do occur and the victims of vaccines should be compensated. For the most part, it is unknown how such injuries occur and how often they occur. Despite this reality, there exists relentless commercial promotion of vaccines. For the sake of the health of our people, this must stop. Public education regarding vaccine risk should be increased, and more rigorous testing of all vaccine brought to market should be applied. Unless this happens, the disturbing trend of increasing vaccine injury will persist as new and exotic vaccines are introduced into the marketplace with dubious justification, except for the bountiful commercial windfall it confers on vaccine manufacturers.

Our thanks also to Robert for telling the truth about a vaccine being sold as safe and effective.

Bodies of 23 dead kids have been stolen from Idlib hospitals. The #WhiteHelmets may be preparing another chemical false flag. No MSM coverage! Either bone marrow is being harvested from their bodies, or they are preparing for another false flag! Aljazeera camera crews are setting up already. In the next few days or week, you see another atrocity splashed on the MSM and wonder why, know that Putin and Trump has been talking and the sense is that of friendlier than before.

White Helmets Preparing Another False-Flag Operation Similar to Idlib’s Chemical Incident

http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13960210001362

TEHRAN (FNA)- The White Helmets Organization is getting ready to write another fake scenario similar to the one they practiced in the town of Kahn Sheikhoun earlier this month, local sources said Sunday.

The sources reported that several White Helmets along with a number of civilians, including children, have arrived in Ariha in Idlib province.

The sources said that the White Helmets are in Ariha to possibly conduct another false-flag operation similar to Khan Sheikhoun chemical incident to create a fresh wave of accusations against the Syrian government’s involvement in a chemical attack on civilians.

On April 4, a chemical weapons incident in Syria’s Idlib province claimed the lives of some 80 people and inflicted harm on an additional 200 civilians. The Syrian National Coalition of Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, as well as a number of Western states, accused the Syrian government troops of carrying out the attack, while Damascus refuted these allegations, with a Syrian army source telling Sputnik that the army did not possess chemical weapons.

Local sources in Idlib province reported earlier today that each member of the White Helmets Organization receives almost $2,000 for making clips about their so-called humanitarian activities in the Northwestern province.

The sources that have been operating in one of the regions in Idlib in which the White Helmets have also been present said that the White Helmets have been receiving between $1,500 up to $2,000 to make a clip about pulling children out of the debris in Idlib.

The sources also said that a large number of the White Helmets along with their partners in Turkey are trading human body-organs in the region.

Earlier this month, Swedish Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR), a non governmental research organization, disclosed that White Helmets are risking civilian lives, rather than rescuing them, for false flag operations against the Syrian government.

Swedish Doctors For Human Rights analyzed videos, the rescue operation by White Helmets after an alleged attack by Syrian government forces, and found that the life-saving procedures seen in the film were incorrect – in fact life-threatening – or simply fake.

Dr. Leif Elinder, Swedish medical doctor profile, author and specialist in pediatrics, disclosed that “after examination of the video material, I found that the measures inflicted upon those children, some of them lifeless, were bizarre, non-medical, non-lifesaving, and even counterproductive in terms of life-saving purposes of children.”

In a statement by Dr. Lena Oske, Swedish medical doctor and general practitioner, she referred to the presumed, adrenaline injection, performed in the White Helmet video. Her specialist opinion dismisses the procedure conducted in the White Helmet video, as unqualified and incorrect.

If not already dead, this injection would have killed the child!,” She said, adding, “Intracutaneous injection with adrenalin may be used if any other resuscitation measure does not succeed. Especially under precarious circumstances – such as in field emergency settings– where safer ways for the administration of medication might be difficult or unavailable. But not in the way shown in the video.”

The Swedish specialist stressed, “In order to perform the injection, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) has to be interrupted, and then the CPR resumed immediately after. Which is not done in the procedures shown in the video.”

She referred to a correct medical procedure, emphasizing that “the technique is simple. Long needle, syringe with 1 mg adrenaline, find the 4th or 5th intercostal space and insert the needle just adjacent to the sternum, left side, deposit the medication after checking you are in the right position (aspiration of blood and no resistance), take out the needle and immediately resume CPR! So, the doctor who wrote the comment, ‘If not already dead, this injection would have killed the child’ was right! What a macabre scene; and how sad.”

According to the analysis provided by doctors, “the video should be life-saving measures after a chemical attack with chlorine gas (now claimed to be Sarin-not possible), including injection of adrenaline via syringe with a long needle into the heart of an infant. In no way were treatments correctly given for any potential chemical agent.”

“The handling and treatment of the child was done in a manner that was careless, dangerous and likely to cause serious harm,” it said, adding that “none of the children in the videos showed any sign of being a victim of a chemical attack.”

The medical personnel also said that they could safely call them actors at this point, failed to push the plunger on the needle. Thus, the contents of the syringe were never injected as is clearly visible in the video itself.

They added that the most telling was the fake repeated shots of adrenalin, supposedly into the heart.

The visible diagnosis by a team of actual medical experts, based on what was observed in the video, indicated that “the child was suffering from an injection of opiates and was likely dying of an overdose. There is no evidence of any other agent, chemical or otherwise.”

Based on the investigation by experts, “It was clear that the faked injection with the long needle administered through the stitches murdered the child in the video. This was a purposeful killing staged to appear as medical treatment.”

Despite the White Helmets claim, the organization is not an independent body and receives financial supports from several Western states that back terrorist groups in Syria and also has overt links with Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra Front.

A Russian newspaper said in a report in December 2016 that the White Helmets Organization was behind the fake reports about Russia’s airstrikes in Syria, adding that the organization was run by British agents.

Vzglyad daily disclosed in a report that there was reason to believe that the organization was supervised by the British intelligence service and the Soros Fund.

“The Government of the United Kingdom had allocated around 32 million pounds for the needs of the White Helmets in 2013 while another 12.5 million pounds has been paid to the organization only in the year 2016,” a source close to the organization told Tass news agency.

According to the source, the whole budget of the organization was about 50 million dollars a year.

The White Helmets should have also received an additional US $13 million from the United States and the United Kingdom, including the companies associated with George Soros, he added, saying that the organization also received $23 from the US International Development agency.

The source also underlined that one of the leaders of the White Helmets, Mosab Obeidat, was identified to have contributed a major role in the financing of the terrorist groups.

According to some reports, Obeidat played the role of a mediator in providing the Syrian militants with around 2.2 million dollars to pay for weapons and ammunition supplies.

Speaking about the founder of White Helmets James Le Mesurier, the source pointed out that, in all probability, “he is a graduate of the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, which to this day is at the service of Her Majesty (the British Queen), to be exact – in the British military intelligence.”

According to reports, also, the western media refer to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the White Helmets to report on what they call as the Syrian army’s civilians’ execution or detentions.

These sheer lies are told as many people in Aleppo remember the time that the so-called supporters of human rights occupied the people’s houses and threw them into rubbles immediately after turning off the cameras.

Vanessa Beeley, a British investigative journalist focused on the Middle East, disclosed November 2016 that the White Helmets Organization was not an independent body despite their claims and receive financial supports from several Western states that back terrorist groups in Syria.

“The White Helmets cannot be an independent organization because it works for the interests of the western countries that back terrorist groups in Syria and receives financial support from the US, Britain and Germany instead,” Beeley said, adding that “It seems to be strange that the White Helmets are constantly in the regions controlled by the ISIL and Fatah al-Sham Front (the al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) and their affiliated groups. Videos and images taken in these regions prove that the White Helmets cooperate with the terrorists”.

“The White Helmets not only offer medical services to terrorists and take part in their assassination and execution of civilians, but also work for overthrowing the Syrian government,” the journalist stressed.

A Syrian journalist proved in November 2016 via release of several images of a Syrian child that the US-linked White Helmet Humanitarian Organization’s claims of saving civilians in the war-hit country were mere lies.

Abbas Jom’eh released three images of a little girl that had been allegedly rescued by members of the White Helmet Organization in three different locations, disclosing the organization’s lies about rescuing civilians in Syria.

In his twitter page, the Syrian journalist placed three images form the girl that was rescued by the White Helmet’s agents in different places.

“Actors in the White Helmet rescue one girl in three different places! Can’t they play their role any better on this stage,” Abbas Jom’eh asked.

Moscow also said in November 2016 that the so-called reports about “hospitals” and “schools” allegedly located in terrorist-held Syrian territory were created by the “White Helmets” group financed by London.

“After three days it is absolutely clear for everyone that the allegedly bombed “hospitals” and “mobile clinics” in Aleppo exist only in US State Department spokesman John Kirby’s imagination. This “information blooper” will certainly remain a stain on Admiral Kirby’s biography,” Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashekov said, adding that if all the “bombed” “hospitals” and “mobile clinics” were counted, that would mean there is nothing else in Syria apart from them.

US State Department spokesman John Kirby blamed the Russian Aerospace Forces for allegedly “bombing hospitals” in Syria.

The Russian side requested international organizations to provide data on the presence of any medical facilities and schools in terrorist-held territories in Syria but the organizations said they did not have information on the existence of any of such facilities.

“We have repeatedly asked representatives of the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany, other countries and international organizations to provide any information on the location of medical aid posts (‘hospitals’) or schools in Syrian areas controlled by terrorists,” Konashenkov underlined.

“The answer is always the same — no one has such information,” he said.

“There are only reports by the “White Helmets” or anonymous local “journalists” (“activists”),” the spokesman added.

Konashenkov underscored that the UK government officially allocated funds for the activity of “White Helmets”, and so-called “mass media” in Syria which were tasked with posting on Facebook and Twitter information about chemical attacks and reports provided by locals and “White Helmets”.

“The White Helmets,” a documentary about volunteer rescue workers in Syria, won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short, while the analysts believe that it was a propagandistic move by Western media.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had hit out at the White Helmets, calling it a terrorist front, stressing that they are an example of Western narratives grotesquely distorting the truth about the conflict in the country.

Syria has been mired in bloody war since March 2011, with Damascus forces fighting numerous terrorist groups, including ISIL and al-Nusra Front.

Duplessis Orphanage, Canada’s Genocide

Our guest today is one of the many survivors of a horrific footnote of history. He is the author of Americas First Family of Adoptions: Pivas Portant People.

Canada 20 years. 1940’s. The Governor of Quebec and the Catholic church. 300,000 children. Sold on the black market. Tortured beaten and killed. 1999 mass graves found.

Near a pig farm. 10 dollars per body was sold to the medical laboratory. Guinea pigs. The survivors are today still called retarded. 100,000 of the children are missing or dead.

Major coverup. During the TB scare and the higher illiteracy era, some children were taken to ‘orphanages and forced to work, and sent then to mental institutions if they tried to run away or cried for their mothers. Sexual abuse and binding took place. The children were not educated so are illiterate often as adults. Doctors and politicians and priests who hold high positions today are guilty of this and there is no justice for these adult survivors. “Orphans do not deserve acknowledgement.” The Catholic church had control of all the schools, hospitals, and orphanages. They were 70 cents per head, and would get paid by psychiatric hospitals would pay 2.50 per head. Cardinals escaped to Rome. The adults who survived took menial jobs to survive, because of them not being educated. This was a secret because many don’t know how to talk about it. The story broke in the 90s, had some flash in the media, but then sudden silence. Some had been menaced to not speak on this. Journalists were threatened media stations were threatened with closure, so there was scant coverage. The cloth of the robe, is what protected the perpetrators.

The College of Physicians, the Government, the Catholic Church especially the Vatican must pay reparations and apologize for what they have done. All the records of those children must have the label of “Mentally Retarded” removed from the record immediately!
