This a call for Congress to review and put an end to the Executive Orders made by Obama that allow us to be killed, Jailed, and detained forever, without cause, witness, or charges.
It is the first of several that I plan to author in an effort to repeal some of the restrictions on our liberties, which will include one to repeal Obamacare, making it voluntary, not forced, and some to force the FDA to remove its protections for preferred corporations and protect the American people against systematic poisoning, and one to force the Government to give us back our choices for our own health and children, and protect us from the pandering of dangerous drugs by the pharmaceutical companies.
Please support me in this effort, and in doing so, you will not only support yourself, but the very health and well being of all American children and families, your own included.
It is time that We, the People, let our voices be heard, whether the politicians want to hear us or not!
Please, bring your voice and join me, one of We, the People, in taking back America, one shout at a time!

The Susan B Kohmen foundation was caught misappropriating funds. Google it for proof. Also, mammograms cause cancer and the folks pushing them on us turn out to own stock in the machines themselves. Please search herbal remedies and cure yourself naturally. Women have been victimized enough by money grubbing Drs., radiologists, and pharmaceutical companies. Educate yourselves and refuse to be a patsy anymore! we are strong enough to do this, Ladies, and all men who love women! Don't give yourself cancer just so Susan b can make money off your "cure".
And for Heavens sake, DO NOT cut off your breasts to prevent cancer! Keep your body PH alkaline and you will NEVER get cancer. Do not support the very people that care even less about your quality of life than they do about your breasts.
Google herbs for PH alkalinity, and follow the steps. PLEASE!

(NaturalNews) The CDC has released a new zombie apocalypse preparedness campaign, and at one level, it almost begins to be useful. The "Preparedness 101 Zombie Apocalypse" novella is viewable online, connecting with the public through a pop culture theme -- zombies -- that has experienced a strong resurgence over the last few years.

The zombie novella even offers a small taste of some realistic, practical advice. Early in the novella, for example, a concerned citizen clicks on the CDC's preparedness website and prints out a list of items needed to create an emergency preparedness kit. Those items include:

Water, food, flashlight, battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra batteries, first aid kit, medications and medical items, multi-purpose tool, sanitation and personal hygiene items, copies of personal documents, cell phone with chargers, family and emergency contact information, extra cash, emergency blanket, map(s) of the area, medical supplies (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, cane), baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers), games and activities for children, pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl), extra set of car keys and house keys, manual can opener (http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/images/zombie/Alt_Text_for_Graphic_Novella.pd...)

There's only one problem with this list: There's nothing in it for self defense against the zombies.

(Story continues below...)

Here's the cover of the novella: (http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombies/#/page/1)




A zombie novel without a shotgun? First off, everybody knows that if you want to stop a zombie, you need a good shotgun. A 12 gauge is preferred, and Remington pump action shotguns are very, very reliable. However, I kind of take a liking to the Benelli M4 autoloader (http://www.benelliusa.com/shotguns/benelli-m4.php), which can blast six zombies in less than three seconds.

There are no shotguns, pistols or any other tools of self defense even mentioned in the CDC's novella. The entire message is "wait for the government to save you."

Instead of defending yourself, the novel suggests you make your way to what is essentially a "FEMA camp" -- an area surrounded by wire fencing, where masses of people sleep on cots in a gymnasium-style staging area.

The zombie apocalypse is halted, predictably, by a vaccine. Yep, the CDC's amazing scientists are depicted as developing a miracle vaccine that halts the zombie infection and saves the world. There's no mention of mercury side effects, or the effects of chemical adjuvants that cause convulsions, paralysis and even autism in some people. That little factoid is completely left out of this fiction novel. There's also no mention of how the drug companies have already been caught faking their vaccine trials, spiking blood samples with antibodies to try to make them appear more effective than they really are (http://www.naturalnews.com/036417_Glaxo_Merck_fraud.html).

The CDC's world-saving vaccines are, of course, to be injected into all the people in the FEMA camp. But not before an attack wave by the zombies, fended off by the U.S. military.

In the end, the main character of the novella suddenly awakens. The whole thing was a "bad dream" (kind of like all the fiction surrounding the H5N1 hysteria pushed by the CDC and the WHO). But the character remembers one thing: It's important to be prepared.

Except he still has no shotgun.

Supplies recommended by the CDC will only position you to die like everybody else On the final page of the novella, the CDC recommends a list of supplies that include politically correct preparedness items such as baby diapers and extra batteries for your hearing aid. You're also supposed to have a whistle and a copy of your health insurance policy. (Yep, because paperwork is always important in a collapsing police state.)

The list does NOT include many of the basics that will really save your life in an emergency: A portable water filter, colloidal silver, an emergency tourniquet, a large utility knife or combat knife, and a well-oiled firearm with tritium night sights. Nope, because the CDC doesn't want to encourage anyone to take care of themselves. You're supposed to just report to the local FEMA camp, take your vaccine shots, and rely on the government to save you. That's the message from the CDC.

This novella is, of course, pure government propaganda. More importantly, it's a recipe for being "culled" out of the human population. That's the point of the FEMA camps, of course, which are heavily stocked with human incinerator coffins. You can see the pictures (and the patent) at: http://www.naturalnews.com/036951_financial_collapse_optimism_silver_...

Real survivors have shotguns, rifles, pistols and plenty of ammo. They have night vision devices and the skills to use them. Real survivors have ballistic vests that stop bullets. (www.BulletProofMe.com)

Real survivors carry tactical flashlights (www.SupplySource.com) and own survival garden seeds. They are decisive, self-reliant and determined to make it through almost anything.

The CDC doesn't teach real survival skills. It teaches a watered-down fairy tale version of "polite" survival... survival for people who live in denial of the real world. If you really want to survive a zombie apocalypse, don't listen to the CDC. They'll get you killed. For real preparedness, read websites like this one (NaturalNews.com) or James Wesley Rawles' site www.SurvivalBlog.com

The bottom line? The CDC's list is really just "preparedness for people who want to die." If you want to actually LIVE through a crisis, or a pandemic, or even a zombie apocalypse, step up to real preparedness which inevitably requires a firearm plus the skills to safely and effectively use it in an encounter with violent attackers.

Senior citizens are buying firearms like crazy Did you know that most of the people buying firearms right now are senior citizens? Did you know that senior citizens who carry concealed weapons routinely stop crime? Watch this video we created, which has been viewed over one million times, to see an example from a security camera: www.youtube.com/watch?v=epZod2qyyN4

Did you know that gun sales are skyrocketing through the roof? 16 million gun sale background checks were performed by the FBI in 2011 (http://www.cnbc.com/id/48943733), and that number may exceed 20 million this year.

If you buy a firearm, make sure you get a firearm that actually works in the field. There's a lot of stuff on the market that falls apart or jams when you need it most. My firearms instructor told me the two most reliable models he's seen across thousands of students are Glock (http://us.glock.com/) and M&P (www.Smith-Wesson.com). If you get a Glock, go with "Gen 3" because it's proven in the field and spare parts are easily available. Many firearms instructors swear by the Glock 19, which turns out to be a perfectly balanced firearm for most women as well as men.

Do you know why senior citizens are buying firearms like crazy these days? Because crime is UP thanks to the economy being gutted by government policies that seem intent on destroying the jobs base in America. At the same time, police forces are being downsized. So you've got more crime, but fewer police on the streets. That means more innocent victims unless you can protect yourself. The great advantage with a firearm such as a Glock 19 is that even a small, elderly woman can handle it and thereby give herself a mechanism for instant defense against much larger muggers, murderers or other violent criminals.

Even liberals are buying guns these days because they want to be safe, even if they don't "like" guns. I don't particularly like guns, either. I just like being safe and self-reliant. A firearm just happens to be the most effective way to accomplish that. I'm FAR more interested in seeds, permaculture, superfoods, philosophy and natural living, but in order to protect all those things -- plus my farm and my family -- I also own firearms.

Firearms are "force equalizers," which is why the government doesn't want citizens to have them... because it would make the citizens "equal" in power to the government. Watch my video here for an explanation of the "monopoly of violence" being pushed by the government today:

(NaturalNews) It has been more than 50 years now since German drug giant Grunenthal unleashed for medical use the infamous horror drug known as thalidomide in 1957. The controversial morning sickness medication was quickly withdrawn worldwide in 1961 after it was discovered that thousands of babies whose mothers were exposed to it lost their limbs, developed other serious birth defects, or died. But despite its incredible dangers, thalidomide is still in use today as a chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients.

As reported by BBC News and several other sources, the city of Stolberg in Germany, where Grunenthal is based, recently unveiled a bronze memorial in commemoration of the tens of thousands of young children that were born with birth defects or died as a result of thalidomide. And part of the terms of the project included requiring Grunenthal to participate in both the funding and presentation of the statue, which features a girl with disfigured feet and no arms, and an empty chair. (http://www.npr.org)

Grunenthal reluctantly accepted the proposal, as the company really had no choice, and agreed to issue a formal apology for the damage caused by thalidomide 50 years after its horrific side-effects first began to emerge. But this apology, which was soft-peddled and virtually meaningless, is hardly adequate as thousands of thalidomide's living victims still struggle daily to care for themselves and their loved ones, as well as pay their exorbitant medical bills.

Grunenthal 'apology' completely whitewashes company's deliberate denial of thalidomide dangers A recent settlement made by British and Australian thalidomide distributor Diageo that resulted in a multimillion dollar payout to a thalidomide victim uncovered that Grunenthal actually knew two years before thalidomide was pulled from the market that the drug caused birth defects. And yet in his apology, which was really more of a public relations whitewash than anything else, Grunenthal CEO Harald Stock denied that his company had any prior knowledge about thalidomide's dangers.

Adding to this crafty lie, Stock also failed to even apologize for the damage caused by thalidomide, which was supposed the be the whole point of the company's involvement in the memorial unveiling. Instead, Stock sought forgiveness from the public for his company's failure to "find a way of reaching out to [them] from human being to human being," whatever that means. He even tried to claim that Grunenthal's silence on the matter for more than 50 years was because the company was in "shock" -- nice.

The validity of such statements is laughable, considering the fact that numerous outside sources have confirmed that Grunenthal knew all along about thalidomide's gruesome side-effects, but did nothing about them. The company apparently thought the issue would eventually just be swept under the rug. But now that it has reemerged in the limelight, Grunenthal decided to carefully piece together a canned "apology" that neither apologizes nor admits any responsibility for the damage caused by its deadly thalidomide drug.

"In March 1961, the (Grunenthal) board could have sensibly decided to withdraw thalidomide from the market in light of claims of birth defects and nerve damage to people taking it," wrote Geoff Adams-Spink, a former BBC journalist who himself suffers multiple impairments as a result of thalidomide, in a recent CNN editorial. "Instead, [the company] decided to carry on regardless -- there was far too much money to be made from peddling its toxic 'wonder drug.'"

Thalidomide's origins traced back to Nazi death camps It is also worth noting that, according to numerous credible sources, thalidomide got its start in Nazi death camps. In his editorial piece, Adams-Spink explains how two solicitors working on behalf of thalidomide survivors discovered that thalidomide was tested on Nazi prisoners in Poland during the Holocaust. Convicted Nazi war criminal Otto Ambros, who was Hitler's chief chemical weapons expert, also served on Grunenthal's board in the 1950s. (http://www.heraldsun.com.au)

"This is a company that has evil written into its DNA," Dr. Martin Johnson, a respected historian and Director of the U.K.-based Thalidomide Trust, is quoted as saying by Adams-Spink. (http://www.cnn.com)

Deadly thalidomide still used today in Western medicine None of this is really all that surprising when you consider the fact, for every individual baby exposed to thalidomide that survived, albeit with permanent birth defects, 10 others died as a result of exposure to thalidomide. Grunenthal, after all, has a long legacy of serving the interests of the Nazi Party -- thalidomide's creator, Heinrich Muckter, was also a Nazi -- so it is not surprising that the company knowingly dispensed deadly drugs, and later tried to cover it up.

This is illustrated in that thalidomide was never properly safety tested or proven to be safe prior to its release, despite what Grunenthal now claims. Documents exposing this truth conveniently went missing in the 1970s when prosecutors actively began to pursue Grunenthal on behalf of thalidomide's many victims. (http://www.cnn.com)

And though it was never approved in the U.S. as a treatment for morning sickness like it was in many other countries at the time, thalidomide is actually still used today in the U.S. as a chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients. The very same drug that killed countless children and maimed many others is now being regularly injected into those suffering from cancer, as well as administered as a treatment for leprosy. (http://www.chemocare.com/bio/thalidomide.asp)

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), of course, is the entity responsible for allowing thalidomide to reemerge as a supposedly safe and effective drug treatment. While a memorial commemorating the tragedy unleashed by thalidomide in the 1950s is being established in Europe, the FDA is actively promoting the use of thalidomide in the U.S., where more research is now being conducted on potential new "uses" for this deadly drug.

(NaturalNews) Genetically engineered wheat contains an enzyme suppressor that, when consumed by humans, could cause permanent liver failure (and death). That's the warning issued today by molecular biologist Jack Heinemann of the University of Canterbury in Australia.

Heinemann has published an eye-opening report that details this warning and calls for rigorous scientific testing on animals before this crop is ever consumed by humans. The enzyme suppressor in the wheat, he says, might also attack a human enzyme that produces glycogen. Consumers who eat genetically modified wheat would end up contaminating their bodies with this enzyme-destroying wheat, causing their own livers to be unable to produce glycogen, a hormone molecule that helps the body regulate blood sugar metabolism. This, in turn, would lead to liver failure.

"What we found is that the molecules created in this wheat, intended to silence wheat genes, can match human genes, and through ingestion, these molecules can enter human beings and potentially silence our genes," said Heinemann in a press conference on the threat of GM wheat (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI7n_caiTvE).

"We found over 770 pages of potential matches between these two genes in wheat and the human genome," he continued. "We found over a dozen matches that are extensive and identical, and sufficient to cause silencing in experimental systems. The findings are absolutely assured. There's no doubt that these matches exist. ...from this information, we know that it's plausible there will be an adverse effect and therefore that's why we're calling for a particular battery of experiments to be done before humans eat this wheat."

Professor Judy Carman, biochemist and director of the IHER, Flinders University, Adelaide, added: "If this silences the same sort of gene in us -- as it silences in the wheat -- then, well, children who are born with this enzyme not working tend to die by the age of about five. And adults with this problem, just kind of get more and more sick, and more and more tired, until they get very very ill indeed."

She continues, "Before this comes near any human feeding studies, you need to undertake thorough animal safety assessments, where you actually look to see if the animals get sick. So you need to see if this genetic modification survives digestion and gets into the bodies of the animals. You need to see what effect it has on them. You need to do proper long-term toxicology studies... you need to check for cancer, you need to see if there are any reproductive problems, and you need to check for allergies..."

CLARIFICATION: This note was added after initial publication to help clarify the status of GM wheat. Currently, GM wheat is not commercialized. It's not yet found in everyday foods. But the GMO industry is trying to commercialize it while skipping any real safety testing and buying off regulators to declare it safe. GM corn, of course, is already widely used in foods, as is GM soy. But GM wheat is not yet in the food supply. If we don't resist the domination of the biotech industry, however, it soon will be.

GMO pushers want you and your children to be the guinea pigs As you consider this information, keep in mind that GMO pushers want you and your children to eat GMOs that have never been safety tested on anyone! You are simply supposed to believe in the safety of GMOs, like a cult followers, without any scientific evidence proving it.

In today's corporate-run quack science agricultural system, YOU are the human guinea pigs. There is no science behind the safety of GMOs, and in fact the real science shows that GMOs cause infertility, sickness and disease in the animal tests that have been done. GMOs are a threat to humanity, and those who promote them are junk science villains who have sold their souls to the criminal biotechnology industry.

The GMO industry is so evil that it doesn't even want you to know you're eating GMOs! That's why industry giants are funneling tens of millions of dollars into a scheme to try to defeat Proposition 37 in California (www.CArighttoknow.org) which would legally mandate the labeling of GMOs on food products.

Even popular brands that "sound" natural are actually fighting against GMO labeling: Kashi, Larabar, Cascadian Farm, R.W. Knudsen, Silk and other brands have all betrayed consumers and are now the subject of a global Natural News boycott.

Australian regulators sell out to Monsanto In commenting on all this, Dr Brian John of GM-Free Cymru said:

"What we see here is yet another example of a GM wheat variety released into the environment without any proper assessment of health and safety issues. CSIRO and the Australian and New Zealand regulators have long had a strategy of promoting GM crops which nobody actually wants, with a degree of enthusiasm that verges on criminal negligence. We see a very similar scenario in the UK, where GM wheat is being grown at Rothamsted in spite of strong public opposition and in spite of zero market demand, just to satisfy the whims of politicians and multinational corporations. It is high time for this absurd and dangerous experiment with GM technology to be stopped in its tracks, since new evidence of harm to health and the environment now seems to be appearing on a weekly basis."

(NaturalNews) A growing number of Americans are already outraged over the government's use of high-powered, ultra-revealing and potentially dangerous backscatter x-ray machines at a growing number of the nation's airports, and as bad as that problem is, it's about to get a whole lot worse unless Congress intervenes to stop the madness.

In the late 1990s, travel experts doubted the government would ever employ such machines in a security checkpoint role at airports or other locations. The terrorist attacks on 9/11 dramatically reversed that mentality to the point that now, no doubt afraid of being accused of doing "too little" to enhance security, lawmakers and select government agencies have done a complete reversal, permitting the use of high-powered x-ray machines to "scan" airline travelers (and perhaps, we near bus, train and other modes of travel in the future).

The all-knowing Transportation Security Administration insists the machines it is currently using - some 250 of them - are safe, but the agency relies primarily on its own in-house and government experts to support their claims.

The non-governmental experts speak

But other private-sector experts, including a bevy of health and radiation scientists cited by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, disagree. They include Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D., a board certified neurosurgeon, who wrote:

The growing outrage over the Transportation Security Administration's new policy of backscatter scanning of airline passengers and enhanced pat-downs brings to mind these wise words from President Ronald Reagan: The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help you. So, what is all the concern really about - will these radiation scanners increase your risk of cancer or other diseases? A group of scientists and professors from the University of California at San Francisco voiced their concern to Obama's science and technology adviser John Holdren in a well-stated letter back in April (2010).

The letter he referred to was signed by doctors John Sedat Ph.D., David Agard, Ph.D., Marc Shuman, M.D., Robert Stroud, Ph.D., all of whom are faculty at the University of California, San Francisco. They wrote:

We are writing to call your attention to serious concerns about the potential health risks of the recently adopted whole body backscatter X-ray airport security scanners. This is an urgent situation as these X-ray scanners are rapidly being implemented as a primary screening step for all air travel passengers. Our overriding concern is the extent to which the safety of this scanning device has been adequately demonstrated. This can only be determined by a meeting of an impartial panel of experts that would include medical physicists and radiation biologists at which all of the available relevant data is reviewed.

These experts went on to say that even though the overall dose of radiation "would be safe if it were distributed throughout the volume of the entire body, the dose to the skin may be dangerously high."

Despite what the experts say, the government continues to employ more powerful x-ray machines

No matter. Again, the TSA knows better. And apparently, judging by the lack of concern shown by a majority of members of Congress, most of them agree with this rogue agency.

So, law enforcement agencies, including the TSA and others, are continuing to expand their use of x-ray scanners, "including machines that expose people to as much as 50 times more radiation than an airport scanner, and are sometimes using them on people without their knowledge or consent," AllGov.com reported.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is currently installing some 35 drive-thru x-ray gates that will scan vehicles at the border with passengers still inside.

New York City, meanwhile, has utilized specially equipped vans to scan vehicles for drugs and weapons, again while people are inside them.

Also, prisons have begun to use x-rays that can see through the body in search of contraband that may be hidden inside the bodies of prisoners - and jail employees as well.

Where are the government regulatory agencies?

The Food and Drug Administration, which is responsible for the safety of medical machines like x-ray equipment, apparently has no jurisdiction over their non-medical use, according to reports. So, they've done nothing about the use of x-ray scanners by police.

7 "Secret" Ways We Are Being Poisoned

The objectivism of the scientific method seems to have been hijacked by corporations who often pay for scientists to support their products, as well as politicians who move through the revolving door between the private and public sector. Even worse is that sometimes the consumer protection agencies themselves are complicit.

The trust placed by consumers in scientific studies and Federal oversight committees has been violated in service to profit so that products are allowed to enter the marketplace with reduced safety standards. The synthetic chemicals we encounter on a daily basis in our food, water, and environment are increasingly shown to be disastrous to our physical and mental well-being. Volumes can be written -- indeed have been written -- by experts in both mainstream and alternative medicine who have documented the sleight of hand used to hoodwink consumers and threaten our health. The categories below are worth deeper investigation as prime examples of what we might face as a species if this chemical bombardment continues.

GMO foods -- Monsanto started as a chemical company that brought the world poisons like Agent Orange and Roundup. Now they are more well known for their domination of Genetically Modified agriculture, owning nearly 90% of staple GMO crops such as corn, soy, and cotton. In independent studies GMO "frankenfood" has been linked to organ failure, and a recent Russian study has concluded near-total sterility in GMO-soy-fed hamsters by the third generation. Despite these and many other legitimate health concerns, it is unlikely that the Monsanto-controlled FDA will curb the growth of GMO foods, while the USDA's biotechnology risk assessment research arm has a paltry $3 million at its disposal. Of course the industry-funded studies show that the effects GMO on human health are "negligible."

Food additives -- When most of us think of harmful food additives we think of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) which is still in many processed foods, but unfortunately MSG appears to be the least of the poisons now found in our food. In 2008 Melamine was found in infant formula and some food products from China; the FDA went on record to say it was OK, despite sickening tens of thousands. Dangerous food additives appear in nearly all processed foods with even the most common food dyes Red 40, Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 being linked to cancer. Most recently 92,000 pounds of frozen chicken was recalled because it contained "blue plastic pieces," while McDonald's Chicken McNuggets have been found to have "silly putty" chemicals in them. In fact, some researchers estimate that today's chicken is so full of chemicals that it only contains 51% actual meat.


Fluoride -- Not all fluoride is bad; only the type promoted by dentistry and added to our water and food supply. Calcium fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral, while its synthetic counterpart, sodium fluoride (silicofluoride), is an industrial-grade hazardous waste material made during the production of fertilizer. Its past history includes patented use as rat poison and insecticide. There are many blind- and double-blind studies that show sodium fluoride has a cumulative effect on the human body leading to allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, bone weakening, cancer, and neurological problems. In this case, the EPA's Union of scientists issued a white paper condemning fluoridation of drinking water. However, as a hazardous waste, it is extremely expensive to dispose of as such. And here might be a clue as to why this chemical, more toxic than lead and almost on par with arsenic, has been disposed of for our consumption.

Mercury -- A dangerous heavy metal in its natural quicksilver form, but more so as the neurotoxin, methylmercury, released into the environment by human activity. In both organic and inorganic form, mercury wreaks havoc with the nervous system -- especially the developing nervous system of a fetus. It penetrates all living cells of the human body, and has been documented most as increasing the risk for autism. This calls into question mercury's use in dental fillings, vaccines, and just about anything containing high fructose corn syrup -- a near staple in the American diet . . . including baby food. But the Corn Refiners Association naturally supports this chemical that is "dangerous at any level."

Aspartame -- The king of artificial sweeteners was allowed to the market in 1981 when the U.S. Commissioner of Food and Drugs, Arthur Hull Hayes, overruled FDA panel suggestions, as well as consumer concerns. Aspartame is a neurotoxin that interacts with natural organisms, as well as synthetic medications, producing a wide range of proven disorders and syndromes. So who installed this commissioner that would rule against scientists and the public? Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of G.D. Searle; the maker of Aspartame. Rumsfeld was on Reagan's transition team, and the day after Reagan took office he appointed the new FDA Commissioner in order to "call in his markers" with one of the most egregious cases of profit-over-safety ever recorded. Aspartame is now nearly ubiquitous, moving beyond sugarless products and into general foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and even products for children. It recently has been renamed to the more pleasant sounding AminoSweet.

Personal care and cleaning products -- Everyday household items and cosmetic products are applied directly to the skin, absorbed through the scalp, and inhaled. The Story of Cosmetics uses an animated video to tell a haunting tale of industrial violations and complicit "public safety" groups . . . and still only tells half of that story. The list of common products and their chemical components is encyclopedic. The sum total of the overwhelming presence of these chemicals has been linked to nearly every allergy, chronic affliction, and disease known to man. Most recently, household cleaning products have been linked to breast cancer and ADHD in children.

Airborne pollutants -- In a NASA article titled "Airborne Pollutants Know No Borders" they stated that, "Any substance introduced into the atmosphere has the potential to circle the Earth." The jet stream indeed connects all of us. There is one category of airborne pollution that has been conspiracy theory despite a voluminous number of unclassified documents from 1977 Senate hearings: chemical spraying (chemtrails) by both private and commercial aircraft. Recent admissions by public officials strengthen the case. Fallout from these chemical trails has been tested and shows very high levels of barium and aluminum.

Interesting to note that Monsanto announced that they recently developed an aluminum-resistant gene to be introduced. Chemtrails might seem like abject paranoia, but there is a current example of chemical spraying that is undeniable: the spraying of Corexit oil dispersant over the Gulf. This process of aerial application can be likened to crop-dusting, which we know has been going on for nearly 100 years. Wars abroad even seem to be affecting global air quality, as military munitions such as depleted uranium have entered the upper atmosphere, spreading around the planet. The observable effects of depleted uranium are not pleasant. Airborne pollutants have been linked to allergies, genetic mutations, and infertility.


This is all leading to scientific, governmental, and medical management of the health and rights of the individual. It is ironic (or coincidental) that when one becomes sick due to the unnatural products listed above, the mainstream medical establishment aims to treat the afflictions with more unnatural chemicals. Furthermore, some of the people at high levels of American government and academia such as John P. Holdren, the current White House Science Czar, have advocated population control via "pollution particles" as far back as 1977 in books such as Ecoscience. Holdren's views of humanity could make one question the intentionality of the poisons in our environment.

Constitutionalists Labeled as Terrorists for Speaking Out Against the Government

Susanne Posel - Occupy Corporatism

In August, Brian Loftus, commercial fisherman and member of Oathkeepers, was harassed by local police for purchasing “a few boxes of ammunition.”

The local shop keeper contact the police because he was concerned Loftus “wasn’t going to do something crazy” with the ammunition. Without probable cause, police checked his criminal background – finding no further cause for questioning, however they continued to question Loftus as to why he purchased the ammunition.

Loftus explains: “As things are progressing in the country, this is becoming more prevalent and as someone who has swore an oath to defend the Constitution like I have and these officers have, they have to wonder how many people are they gonna call? Are they gonna call their brother in law next time he goes to buy some ammunition or their brother or sister or son – where does it end?”

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force have indicated to owners of gun shops and gun ranges the US government’s new definitions of domestic terrorist that coincide with their demonization of US veterans and propaganda claims that domestic terrorists are more of a threat than their manufactured insurgent groups like al-Qaeda and the Free Syrian Army .

Last month, John Whitehead, constitutional attorney for former US Marine Brandon Raub, told Glenn Beck in an interview that veterans all over the country have been disappearing.

Whitehead says that he is receiving correspondence from people across America that report that US veterans are being detained in psychiatric hospitals for speaking out against the US government. Back in January of this year, Whitehead pointed out that the US government, under directives of Obama, has labeled constitutionalists as terrorists with the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that “would allow the military to show up at your door if you’re a &lsquootential terrorist,’ and &ldquout you in military detention where seeing a lawyer is difficult.”

Just as Raub was forcibly detained in a mental ward, another veteran has been taken without charge or criminal activity. His firearms were confiscated and he was given a court date.

In central Ohio, another US veteran was involuntarily detained in a VA psychiatric hospital. His guns were confiscated “for the safety of the defendant and the general public,” according to a warrant supplied by the Ohio Sheriff’s office.

The warrant also stated: “The person is under adjudication of mental incompetence, has been adjudicated as a mental defective, has been committed to a mental institution, has been found by a court to be a mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order, or is an involuntary patient other than one who is a patient only for purposes of observation. As used in this division, ‘mentally ill person subject to hospitalization by court order’ and &lsquoatient’ have the same meanings as in section 5122.01 of the Revised Code.”

Earlier this year, Federal Court Judge Katherine Forrest ordered that the US military could not arbitrarily imprison Americans based on alleged terrorist activity in regard to the indefinite detention clause in the NDAA. While Obama’s lawyers are trying to fight this decision, there is also a more subversive plan to commit veterans to mental hospitals because this is not illegal.

In Phoenix, Arizona, Quartzite Chief of Police Jeff Gilbert labeled the Oathkeepers and Sons of Liberty organizations as “terrorists”. Gilbert elaborated: “I take these terrorist threats very seriously and I have reported them to the FBI and anyone else who will listen.”

Back in 2011, Vice President Joe Biden accused the Tea Party of having “acted like terrorists” asserting that “we have negotiated with terrorists. This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.” This comment came on the heels of assertions that talking to representatives affiliated with the Tea Party are liken to discussing buracracy with Republicans with “guns to their heads” referencing that the Tea Party wielded violent authority of the political party.

In 2009, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis published a report entitled Rightwing Extremism, wherein US veterans become domestic extremists, particularly white supremacists, who are proposed to be the newest and most dangerous threat to the US since al-Qaeda.

The DHS admitted that they had “no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment.”

The DHS wanted to instill the idea that veterans were being recruited to become “right-wing extremists” upon returned from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Janet Napolitano intimated that military veterans could become instruments of domestic terror. When Napolitano’s comments were met with public distain, the DHS amended their assertion that extremist groups were highly-marked; but rather it was a lone wolf type that would carry out the biggest act of domestic terrorism. Still the seed had been planted in the social meme that US veterans were turning on America and becoming a threat to continuity of government.

The US Armed Forces have announced wars within its ranks as they claim white supremacists are joining the military to infiltrate and overthrow what is referred to as the Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG).

The purveying scheme includes a secret infiltration of racists who are expressly trying to divide the US military. However, the controllers of this concept are the FBI-sponsored Southern Poverty Law (SPLC) Center and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) who are working with the military to train soldiers on how to spot extremists in their ranks. This is the military’s answer to the Department of Homeland Security (DH See Something, Say Something campaign to create Stasi out of ordinary citizens.

In Manchester, New York, the Traffic Services Unit of the police department is attempting to recruit ordinary citizens to observe traffic violations by sitting in designated areas and reporting their findings to the local police department.

In Ludowici, Georgia, Army soldiers were arrested; charged with the murders of a cohort and his girlfriend to supposedly &ldquorotect an anarchist militia group they formed that stockpiled assault weapons and plotted a range of anti-government attacks.”

From the Fort Stewart Army post, this alleged militia group called Forever Enduring Always Ready (FEAR) comprised of “active and former U.S. military members spent at least $87,000 buying guns and bomb components” has an unknown amount of members who are organizing to target “soldiers who were in trouble or disillusioned” according to prosecutor Isabel Pauley.

The inclusion of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) is not arbitrary. In conjunction with the manufactured threat our US veterans pose, they are being tied to IEDs to add to the mix the threat of a false flag explosion that can be later attributed to the actions of either an active duty solider or a US veteran.

(NaturalNews) A doctor at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) in Silver Spring, Maryland, the same locale where the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) coordinates its own tyrannous operations, has been awarded a $5 million grant to complete the development of a combination "anti-heroin" and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) vaccine, the latest in a long lineup of vaccines that is now emerging for practically every known condition and predisposition.

A recent announcement issued by the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a division of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), explains that Dr. Gary R. Matyas is this year's recipient of the NIDA Avant-Garde Award for Medications Development, an award that NIDA says was designed specifically for projects such as this one.

The impetus behind the research is based on the idea that heroin addiction is closely associated with HIV infection, and that addressing both problems with a dual-charged vaccine is a viable solution for both problems. As ludicrous as this seemingly hair-brained idea sounds -- heroin addiction, after all, is not even a disease capable of being prevented through inoculation -- Dr. Matyas will be receiving a whopping $1 million a year to turn the vaccine concept into a reality.

The idea actually goes back even further than Dr. Matyas, in fact, as the announcement explains how the U.S. Military's HIV Research Program teamed up with NIDA back in 2010 for the specific purpose of developing a combination anti-heroin, HIV vaccine. Dr. Matyas has apparently already developed the anti-heroin component, and will use his incoming millions from the award to move into the second phase of the project, which involves the HIV component.

For years, NaturalNews has been warning about the ongoing campaign to create vaccines for everything, as researchers are now openly working on vaccines they say will prevent salmonella infection, for instance (http://www.naturalnews.com/035058_vaccines_salmonella_pathogens.html), or even depression (http://articles.chicagotribune.com). If you suffer from it, the medical mafia will soon have a jab for it.

Vaccines as a form of mind control for 'mental disorders' Depression, as we all know, is not an infectious disease, and neither is heroin addiction. These are primarily psychological conditions, which means they are not the types of conditions that can be addressed by a vaccine, at least according to the prevailing vaccine theory. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

But there is a lot of money to be made by creating so-called "vaccines" for these conditions, even if the vaccines do not actually work, which is why mainstream medicine is shifting gears and claiming that individuals can now be inoculated against psychological and other non-infectious conditions like depression and addiction.

So you can be sure that this latest form of institutionalized quackery will not be the last for the vaccine industry, as researchers will more than likely introduce even more vaccines for "mental illnesses" like "oppositional defiant disorder," (ODD), also as thinking for one's own self and not going along with the crowd. This so-called "condition" is one of many suggested for inclusion in the psychiatric industry's latest Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

If you appear to be "antisocial," for instance, or have personality traits that deviate from the norm, then you may already be considered by some to have a mental disorder. And since vaccines for other "mental disorders" like depression are already rolling down the pipeline, it is not a far stretch to assume that vaccines for these and other conditions could soon become a reality as well.

(NaturalNews) Like Chicken Little running around screaming, "the sky is falling," too many mainstream media and doctors have issued dire warnings about deadly bacteria that are no longer susceptible to antibiotics, leaving people virtually helpless if Big Pharma doesn't soon find more drugs that can kill potentially deadly germs. While it is true that so-called superbugs are dangerous, a healthy immune system bolstered by good diet and exercise helps lower the odds you'll ever be a victim to antibiotic-resistant pathogens. And now comes word that a natural substance -- nicotinamide, more commonly known as vitamin B3 -- can combat antibiotic-resistant staph infections.

These specific types of superbugs are increasingly common around the world and have taken the lives of thousands. One of the most common and serious forms of the staph infection, called methicillin-resistant S. aureus, or MRSA, was used in a study just published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation by researchers from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University (OSU), UCLA, and other institutions. MRSA can cause life-threatening illness and, due to the widespread overuse of antibiotics, researchers say it is spreading rapidly and poses a serious health risk.

The new research showed that high doses of B3 increased the ability of immune cells to kill staph bacteria by 1,000 times. The study involved both laboratory animals and human blood.

"It's a way to tap into the power of the innate immune system and stimulate it to provide a more powerful and natural immune response," Adrian Gombart, an associate professor in OSU's Linus Pauling Institute, said in a press statement.

Dr. Gombart discovered 10 years ago that a human genetic mutation makes some people more vulnerable to bacterial infections. However, nicotinamide, B3, has the ability to "turn on" certain antimicrobial genes that greatly rev up the ability of immune cells to kill bacteria. His research team discovered that high doses of B3 increased the numbers and efficacy of "neutrophils," a type of white blood cell that can destroy harmful bacteria. While the doses of B3 tested were far beyond what a normal diet would provide, the scientists noted that they were in amounts that have already been shown to be safe for humans.

Dr. George Liu, an infectious disease expert at Cedars-Sinai and co-senior author on the study, also noted that B3 "is surprisingly effective in fighting off and protecting against one of today's most concerning public health threats (super bugs)." Such approaches, he added, could help reduce dependence on antibiotics.
