California legislators who passed SB 277 to force vaccines on children now want to do the same for adults with SB 792


California

(NaturalNews) Now that nearly all school-age children in California have been summoned into the state’s growing medical dictatorship through Senate Bill 277, corrupt politicians are now trying to pass a companion bill that would force adults to be vaccinated in accordance with the government’s prescribed vaccine schedule.

Introduced by California Senator Tony Mendoza of Senate District 32, Senate Bill 792 is the medical mafia’s latest attempt to force vaccines on individuals without informed consent. It would mandate that adults who work in settings where children are being cared for or educated to be jabbed with many or all of the same vaccines that the children are forced to receive, without the option for a personal or religious exemption.

Those who refuse the mandate would face criminal penalties for non-compliance, according to the bill’s verbiage, which takes it one step further than SB 277 in forcing people under duress to accept a medical treatment that they might otherwise refuse due to the risk of serious adverse events, including death.

“This bill would make California the first state to require mandated vaccinations for all childcare workers, including all private and public school early childhood education programs (Headstart, Private preK and preschools), family daycares, and daycare centers,” warns Vaccine Impact.

“This bill eliminates medical autonomy, crushes religious freedom, undermines personal freedom, and burdens quality providers with a non-optional series of medical interventions in the form of mandated vaccines that are not even 100 percent effective.”

SB 792 would force adults in childcare settings to get annual flu shots

If passed, SB 792 would require all qualifying adults to be vaccinated for influenza, pertussis, and measles beginning on September 1, 2016. These same individuals would also have to receive annual flu shots between August 1 and December 1 of each subsequent year, in perpetuity.

“This bill, commencing September 1, 2016, would prohibit a day care center or a family day care home from employing any person who has not been immunized in accordance with the schedule for routine adult immunizations, prescribed by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” reads and excerpt from the bill.

“The bill would make conforming changes to provisions that set forth qualifications for day care center teachers and applicants for licensure as a family day care center. Because the bill would extend the application of a crime under the act, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.”

The California Assembly Human Services Committee held a hearing for SB 792 on July 14 and voted 15-2 in favor of passing it. SB 792 will now go to the Assembly Appropriations Committee for consideration.

Your help is needed to stop SB 792 dead in its tracks before more personal liberty and health freedom is stolen from Californians. Please take the time to contact the members of California’s Assembly Appropriations Committee and tell them to KILL SB 792!

Drivers, Beware: The Costly, Deadly Dangers Of Traffic Stops In The American Police State ~ ZeroHedge


 

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

“The Fourth Amendment was designed to stand between us and arbitrary governmental authority. For all practical purposes, that shield has been shattered, leaving our liberty and personal integrity subject to the whim of every cop on the beat, trooper on the highway and jail official. The framers would be appalled.”—Herman Schwartz, The Nation

Trying to predict the outcome of any encounter with the police is a bit like playing Russian roulette: most of the time you will emerge relatively unscathed, although decidedly poorer and less secure about your rights, but there’s always the chance that an encounter will turn deadly.

The odds weren’t in Walter L. Scott’s favor. Reportedly pulled over for a broken taillight, Scott—unarmed—ran away from the police officer, who pursued and shot him from behind, first with a Taser, then with a gun. Scott was struck five times, “three times in the back, once in the upper buttocks and once in the ear — with at least one bullet entering his heart.”

Samuel Dubose, also unarmed, was pulled over for a missing front license plate. He was reportedly shot in the head after a brief struggle in which his car began rolling forward.

Levar Jones was stopped for a seatbelt offense, just as he was getting out of his car to enter a convenience store. Directed to show his license, Jones leaned into his car to get his wallet, only to be shot four times by the “fearful” officer. Jones was also unarmed.

Bobby Canipe was pulled over for having an expired registration. When the 70-year-old reached into the back of his truck for his walking cane, the officer fired several shots at him, hitting him once in the abdomen.

Dontrell Stevens was stopped “for not bicycling properly.” The officer pursuing him “thought the way Stephens rode his bike was suspicious. He thought the way Stephens got off his bike was suspicious.” Four seconds later, sheriff’s deputy Adams Lin shot Stephens four times as he pulled out a black object from his waistband. The object was his cell phone. Stephens was unarmed.

If there is any lesson to be learned from these “routine” traffic stops, it is that drivers should beware.

At a time when police can do no wrong—at least in the eyes of the courts, police unions and politicians dependent on their votes—and a “fear” for officer safety is used to justify all manner of police misconduct, “we the people” are at a severe disadvantage.

According to the Justice Department, the most common reason for a citizen to come into contact with the police is being a driver in a traffic stop. On average, one in 10 Americans gets pulled over by police. Black drivers are 31 percent more likely to be pulled over than white drivers, or about 23 percent more likely than Hispanic drivers. As the Washington Post concludes, “‘Driving while black’ is, indeed, a measurable phenomenon.”

As Sandra Bland learned the hard way, the reason for a traffic stop no longer matters. Bland, who was pulled over for allegedly failing to use her turn signal, was arrested after refusing to comply with the police officer’s order to extinguish her cigarette and exit her vehicle. The encounter escalated, with the officer threatening to “light” Bland up with his taser. Three days later, Bland was found dead in her jail cell.

You’re doing all of this for a failure to signal?” Bland asked as she got out of her car, after having been yelled at and threatened repeatedly. Had she only known, drivers have been pulled over for far less. Indeed, police officers have been given free range to pull anyone over for a variety of reasons.

This approach to traffic stops (what I would call “blank check policing,” in which the police get to call all of the shots) has resulted in drivers being stopped for windows that are too heavily tinted, for driving too fast, driving too slow, failing to maintain speed, following too closely, improper lane changes, distracted driving, screeching a car’s tires, and leaving a parked car door open for too long.

Motorists can also be stopped by police for driving near a bar or on a road that has large amounts of drunk driving, driving a certain make of car (Mercedes, Grand Prix and Hummers are among the most ticketed vehicles), having anything dangling from the rearview mirror (air fresheners, handicap parking permits, troll transponders or rosaries), and displaying pro-police bumper stickers.

Incredibly, a federal appeals court actually ruled unanimously in 2014 that acne scars and driving with a stiff upright posture are reasonable grounds for being pulled over. More recently, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that driving a vehicle that has a couple air fresheners, rosaries and pro-police bumper stickers at 2 MPH over the speed limit is suspicious, meriting a traffic stop.

Unfortunately for drivers, not only have traffic stops become potentially deadly encounters, they have also turned into a profitable form of highway robbery for the police departments involved.

As The Washington Post reports, traffic stops for minor infractions such as speeding or equipment violations are increasingly used as a pretext for officers to seize cash from drivers.” Relying on federal and state asset forfeiture laws, police set up “stings” on public roads that enable them to stop drivers for a variety of so-called “suspicious” behavior, search their vehicles and seize anything of value that could be suspected of being connected to criminal activity. Since 2001, police have seized $2.5 billion from people who were not charged with a crime and without a warrant being issued.

“In case after case,” notes The Washington Post, “highway interdictors appeared to follow a similar script. Police set up what amounted to rolling checkpoints on busy highways and pulled over motorists for minor violations, such as following too closely or improper signaling. They quickly issued warnings or tickets. They studied drivers for signs of nervousness, including pulsing carotid arteries, clenched jaws and perspiration. They also looked for supposed ‘indicators’ of criminal activity, which can include such things as trash on the floor of a vehicle, abundant energy drinks or air fresheners hanging from rearview mirrors.”

If you’re starting to feel somewhat overwhelmed, intimidated and fearful for your life and your property, you should be. Never before have “we the people” been so seemingly defenseless in the face of police misconduct, lacking advocates in the courts and in the legislatures.

So how do you survive a police encounter with your life and wallet intact?

The courts have already given police the green light to pull anyone over for a variety of reasons. In an 8-1 ruling in Heien v. North Carolina, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed that police officers can pull someone over based on a “reasonable” but mistaken belief about the law.

Of course, what’s reasonable to agents of the police state may be completely unreasonable to the populace. Nevertheless, the moment those lights start flashing and that siren goes off, we’re all in the same boat: we must pull over.

However, it’s what happens after you’ve been pulled over that’s critical. Survival is the key.

Technically, you have the right to remain silent (beyond the basic requirement to identify yourself and show your registration). You have the right to refuse to have your vehicle searched. You have the right to film your interaction with police. You have the right to ask to leave. You also have the right to resist an unlawful order such as a police officer directing you to extinguish your cigarette, put away your phone or stop recording them.

However, as Bland learned the hard way, there is a price for asserting one’s rights. “Faced with an authority figure unwilling to de-escalate the situation, Bland refused to be bullied or intimidated,” writes Boston Globe contributor Renee Graham. “She understood her rights, but for African-Americans in encounters with police, the appalling price for asserting even the most basic rights can be their lives.”

So if you don’t want to get probed, poked, pinched, tasered, tackled, searched, seized, stripped, manhandled, arrested, shot, or killed, don’t say, do or even suggest anything that even hints of noncompliance when it comes to interactions with police.

One police officer advised that if you feel as if you’re being treated unfairly, comply anyhow and contest it in court later. Similarly, black parents, advising their kids on how to deal with police, tell them to just obey the officer’s orders. “The goal,” as one parent pointed out, “is to stay alive.”

It seems that “comply or die” has become the new maxim for the American police state.

Then again, not even compliance is a guarantee of safety anymore. “Police are specialists in violence,” warns Kristian Williams, who has written extensively on the phenomenon of police militarization and brutality. “They are armed, trained, and authorized to use force. With varying degrees of subtlety, this colors their every action. Like the possibility of arrest, the threat of violence is implicit in every police encounter. Violence, as well as the law, is what they represent.”

In other words, in the American police state, “we the people” are at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, this mindset that any challenge to police authority is a threat that needs to be “neutralized” is a dangerous one that is part of a greater nationwide trend that sets the police beyond the reach of the Fourth Amendment. Moreover, when police officers are allowed to operate under the assumption that their word is law and that there is no room for any form of disagreement or even question, that serves to chill the First Amendment’s assurances of free speech, free assembly and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Frankly, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a casual “show your ID” request on a boardwalk, a stop-and-frisk search on a city street, or a traffic stop for speeding or just to check your insurance. If you feel like you can’t walk away from a police encounter of your own volition—and more often than not you can’t, especially when you’re being confronted by someone armed to the hilt with all manner of militarized weaponry and gear—then for all intents and purposes, you’re under arrest from the moment a cop stops you.

Sad, isn’t it, how quickly we have gone from a nation of laws—where the least among us had just as much right to be treated with dignity and respect as the next person (in principle, at least)—to a nation of law enforcers (revenue collectors with weapons) who treat us all like suspects and criminals?

Clearly, the language of freedom is no longer the common tongue spoken by the citizenry and their government. With the government having shifted into a language of force, “we the people” have been reduced to suspects in a surveillance state, criminals in a police state, and enemy combatants in a military empire.

3-Year-Old London Child Deemed “Extremist”; Placed In Government Reeducation Program


Note: Tyler Durden: “The United Kingdom has gone batshit crazy.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself! Stunning degree of psychopathy on behalf of British officials, absolutely unbelievable. Of course, over here in the U.S. we drug kids into subordination and indoctrination, where toddlers are prescribed prozac to control a variety of “mental disorders”.

What’s the difference between locking a kid up behind bars, or making them prisoners in their own minds?

Blessings, {~A~}

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

The United Kingdom has gone batshit crazy. There’s simply no other way to put it. I warned about Britain’s “war on toddler terrorists” earlier this year in the post: The War on Toddler Terrorists – Britain Wants to Force Nursery School Teachers to Identify “Extremist” Children. Here’s an excerpt:

Nursery school staff and registered childminders must report toddlers at risk of becoming terrorists, under counter-terrorism measures proposed by the Government.

The directive is contained in a 39-page consultation document issued by the Home Office in a bid to bolster its Prevent anti-terrorism plan.

The document accompanies the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, currently before parliament. It identifies nurseries and early years childcare providers, along with schools and universities, as having a duty “to prevent people being drawn into terrorism”.

Never fear good citizens of Great Britain. While your government actively does everything in its power to protect criminal financial oligarchs and powerful pedophiles, her majesty draws the line at toddler thought crime. We learn from the Independent:

A three-year-old child from London is one of hundreds of young people in the capital who have been tipped as potential future radicals and extremists.

As reported by the Evening Standard, 1,069 people have been put in the government’s anti-extremism ‘Channel’ process, the de-radicalization program at the heart of the Government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy.

The three-year-old in the program is from the borough of Tower Hamlets, and was a member of a family group that had been showing suspect behavior.

Since September 2014, 400 under 18s, including teenagers and children, have been referred to the scheme.

The fact that this story broke on the same day that chairman of the UK’s Lords Privileges and Conduct Committee, Lord John Sewel, was caught on video snorting cocaine off the breast of a prostitute with a £5 note, is simply priceless. You just can’t make this stuff up.

From the BBC:

Lord Sewel is facing a police inquiry after quitting as House of Lords deputy speaker over a video allegedly showing him taking drugs with prostitutes.

The footage showed him snorting powder from a woman’s breasts with a £5 note.

In the footage, Lord Sewel, who is married, also discusses the Lords’ allowances system.

As chairman of committees, the crossbench peer also chaired the privileges and conduct committee, and was responsible for enforcing standards in the Lords.

Lord Sewel served as a minister in the Scotland office under Tony Blair’s Labour government.

Tony Blair, why am I not surprised:

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 11.48.13 AM

He has been a member of the Lords since 1996, and is a former senior vice principal of the University of Aberdeen.

Here’s a clip, in the event you’re interested:

 

The UK government is so far gone that it insists on protecting the public from toddlers, rather than protecting toddlers from powerful sexual predators. In case you need a reminder:

New definition of extremist: ‘Anybody who challenges the established order’


Note: American’s better wake-up to the smell of tyranny, the same thing is happening in the U.S., only more covertly.

There is a worrying and dangerous tendency in the UK to label as extremists anybody who poses a challenge and who wants to protest against the unfair economic system that exists in the UK, journalist and broadcaster Neil Clark told RT.

City of London police have been attacked for pigeonholing an anti-capitalist group, alongside Al-Qaeda and IRA. An anti-terror presentation for nursery and school staff featured a picture of the Occupy London campaign alongside images from the 7/7 London bombings in 2005 and an IRA attack in 1996. The anti-inequality group was also categorized as an example of domestic extremism.

RT: As we’ve heard London police have placed movements like the Occupy London movement alongside international terrorist groups. What are your thoughts on calling movements like these extremist?

Neil Clark: I think this all fits in with what’s been happening here in Britain because the government has got this new so-called ‘counter extremism initiative.’ They want to bring in a bill and… their definition of ‘extremism’ is deliberately designed to bring in people who challenge the established order. Of course it’s not just simply about terrorists; it’s about anybody who criticizes the capitalist system, anybody who poses any kind of challenge, and anybody who wants to protest against the existing very unfair economic system that we’ve got in Britain. This is worrying, this is dangerous.

I think we’ve got the biggest threat to our civil liberties in Britain at the moment under this government of David Cameron that we’ve had for many, many years – over 100 years certainly. I remember Cameron a few weeks ago made a very sinister speech when he said that for too long we’ve been a passively tolerant society [and] we’ve got to change that. And he said that in the past people who were not causing trouble would be left alone, and we’ve got to change that – I think it’s very sinister, really, because he is trying to clamp down on legitimate dissent.

RT: Why do you think the intention of the authorities was here?

NC: It’s very clear that what the intention of the authorities is to try to group together anyone who challenges the established order, and to group them all together as terrorists and extremists. So anybody who has any kind of dissenting views that wants to change our economic and political system will be equated with and put together with the most appalling terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda. This is all deliberate, it is all what it’s meant to do is meant to frighten people into conforming. And who wants to be equated with Al-Qaeda, let’s face it? But what they are doing, the authorities, are trying to use this anti-extremism agenda to really try to clamp down on legitimate dissent, legitimate protest, because the aim is, as I said, quite clearly is to group all these people together: ‘Occupy London,’ Al-Qaeda, terrorists, they all are the same, they all are extremists people, animal rights people…

RT: Does labeling of this kind have any impact on individuals and groups that disagree with government policies?

NC: I think lawful campaign groups will be absolutely incensed by this because we are in a very, very dangerous position here in Britain – our civil liberties are threatened in a way they have not been threatened for hundreds of years, probably. David Cameron in that very sinister speech said that he thinks that we’ve been passively tolerant society for too long…

One of the repercussions of that is that the legitimate groups who don’t like the way that country is run, who don’t like our very oligarchal ‘bankocracy’ system of government, who, for example want direct democracy, environmental campaigners, animal rights campaigners- all these people are not happy with the way things are. They were quite rightly being sensed that they are being bracketed with groups like Al-Qaeda. I think there is going to be a huge backlash to this, and that is the question of everybody who is dissenter drawing together now and saying: “Look, we’re not going to put up with this. We’ve got legitimate rights, we’ve got our concerns about the way the country is going, and we’re not going to allow ourselves to be branded extremists simply because we disagree with Mr. David Cameron.”

© Peter Nicholls

RT: Why are the authorities wary of protest movements? After all, they have a legitimate right to their opinion…

NC: Yes, I think that the City of London police has been accused in the past of not doing enough against the criminals in the City, the corrupt ‘banksters’, the financial crooks if you like of the City of London, and instead focus the attention on the petty crimes. You’re more likely to be arrested in the City of London for pick-pocketing than you are for doing a bank fraud worth millions of pounds. So I think that for the City of London police this is very regrettable. And they can’t just say they didn’t know what they were doing. The Occupy movement was very popular, the people made a legitimate statement against the kind of hardcore capitalist system that operates now in Britain. I think it’s a shame on the City of London police for doing this because their job is to be catching criminals and focusing on big criminals, not on trying to smear and put together legitimate protest groups with the most awful terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda.

RT: Can civil disobedience ever be linked to terrorism?

NC: They are doing that. I think the word ‘extremist’ is a very subjective term. The way that the British politics has gone over the last 30 years is that for anybody who holds the sort of what used to be a mainstream in the 1960-70’s in Britain, and I do: mixed economy, a fairer society, anti-war positions. Anybody who holds these views now is at risk of being labeled an extremist. We’ve gone so far to the neo-liberal right in this country; the neo-conservative takeover of power, the neo-conservative and neo-liberals that they brand anybody who doesn’t agree with their agenda as extremists.

The irony is that the biggest extremists are the British government at the moment. They are the ones who have been backing terrorists in Syria who they call rebels; they are the ones who have enabled and facilitated the rise of ISIS with their Middle East policies – these are the real extremists. They are the people who are pursuing extremist economic policies, extremist foreign policies, and they have the audacity to label people who want a more democratic Britain, to get back to the kind of fairer society that we had in the 1960’s and 1970’s in this country. They have the nerve to label these people as extremists, so it’s quite Orwellian. It is beyond George Orwell where you’ve got the moderates- other people who are being labeled as extremists. And the real extremists are the people in power at the moment in Britain.

‘The real terrorists are not those in tents’

Matthew Varnham, Occupy London’s legal advisor, suggests the UK government is labeling the movement as anti-social behavior just because it doesn’t fulfill their criteria of what they would like to see as protest.

RT: As we’ve heard City of London police have placed the movement you represent alongside international terrorist groups. What are your thoughts on being called an extremist?

Matthew Varnham: The fact is that being labeled an extremist is nothing new. In 2011, we were labeled ‘domestic extremists’ through the City of London’s terrorism and extremism update. London’s mayor, Boris Johnson, also referred to the protest as a ‘boil’ that needs to be removed. So it’s nothing new but it does disturb me that the City of London and the police would see a peaceful protest and a movement as something akin to terrorism. I find it particularly sickening that the movement was pictured next to 7/7 [London tube and bus bombings] and I would call on the commissioner, for example, to explain why those two images were next to each other.

RT: It’s been revealed that the mayor spent nearly £2 million pounds on policing a similar movement – Occupy Democracy. Was there any need to spend so much on policing dozens of protestors?

MV: That particular protest was held outside parliament in the run-up to the General Election and it was the most recent iteration of the Occupy movement. The policing of that protest was absolute and people were prevented from protesting on the square. That decision to close the square itself is actually open to a legal challenge currently being taken to the courts. What it does show is that a government – be it in the City of London, Square Mile or elsewhere – who is adamant that the rights of people who object to them are not going to be hurt. The real terrorists are not those in tents but are certainly the corporate and financial world… climate change, the melting ice caps… and high tuition fees. These are some of the things that Occupy was right about in 2011; its other things like that that they are raising now and the real terrorism are those who are introducing policies that prevent those view from being expressed.

RT: Does labeling of this kind have any impact on individuals and groups that disagree with government policies?

MV: The government is… looking at the issue of protesting the wrong way. It’s labeling it as anti-social behavior just by fact; it doesn’t fulfill their criteria of what they would like to see as protest. Protest isn’t going to fit in a particular box, it’s going to be messy and loud; it’s going to have an element of disruption. And the government increasingly can’t handle that.

*The following is a partial transcript of a press release sent out by Occupy London on July 21, 2015: Charges against 12 Occupy Democracy protesters were dropped [July 20] in the first two trials relating to the peaceful pro-democracy group’s occupation of Parliament Square in October 2014. Charges included refusing to comply with a direction to leave and for being in possession of a prohibited article, namely tarpaulin. A further trial relating to charges of aggravated trespass was dropped previously.

Autism, Cancer and viral viruses: The Nagalase link in Vaccines


Note: More on the recent spate of doctor deaths which “appear” to have a link to vaccines. As the dots begand to connect earlier this week, some of the below storys were published here. Reblogged from RemovingtheShackles

From Dani:
The story of , now 8, doctor deaths in the south eastern US has rocked social media recently. A very large finger is being pointed at the fact that this is NOT a “coincidence”.  The vast majority of people re-posting these stories on facebook etc, are focused on the autism angle, but there is, I suspect, SOOOO much MORE.

“Autism” is the “go to” reason that many people refuse vaccines for their children, and the main focus of a vast majority of the outspoken families trying to wake the world up to the dangers of vaccines.  But Autism is just one single piece of this puzzle and many of the other pieces are way bigger in scope.

I am not going to get into  the finer details on this right now.  I have been writing about the dangers of vaccines for many years, and as I have said several times, autism is just the tip of the iceberg.  We are talking about the introduction of several forms of cancer,  HIV/AIDs, Sterilizing/ antifertility drugs, and yes, mind numbing agents, that dull the basic ability of people to even organize their thoughts.

…. and that is without even looking at the nanotechnology being inserted into various vaccines, and the effects of nanites on on our physical bodies and mental capabilities…

I am going to be digging into the Nagalase factor hopefully later next week when I have some time to really do some research, but I wanted to publish this info now as the basic first step into understanding exactly WHY these doctors are being murdered.

Below are 3 articles on the subject, all three give a good jump start into figuring out what’s happening and why.   The simple truth is that the more we know about this and the more we spread the awareness of this in the public, then people will perhaps realize that there is a lot more going on than the media would have us know , and that it’s rather dark and oppressive.

Another article to add, that really blows up a LOT of warning signals for me. When you start talking about Vitamin D, there is a whole new door that opens in this massive puzzle.   Now we are talking about Sunlight.  ….. Do you see the connecting dots now?   I wrote an article a long while ago about Neuromelanin, and melatonin, which has just dropped me into another rabbit hole….  I”m researching…..

Is this the real reason Holistic Doctors are being killed and vanishing?

http://www.richardpresser.com/wordpress/is-this-the-real-reason-holistic-doctors-are-being-killed-and-vanishing/

Human GcMAF, otherwise known as Vitamin D binding protein macrophage activating factor, holds great promise in the treatment of various illnesses including cancer, autism, chronic fatigue and possibly Parkinson’s. Since 1990, 59 research papers have been published on GcMAF, 20 of these pertaining to the treatment of cancer. 46 of these papers can be accessed through the GcMAF web site.
GcMAF is a vital part of our immune system which does not work without it; and is part of our blood. GcMAF stimulates the macrophage element of the immune system to destroy cancer cells. It also blocks the supply of nutrients to cancer cells by stopping blood vessel development to the site (anti-angiogenesis). Cancer cells are weakened and starved, making them more vulnerable to attack by the GcMAF stimulated macrophage system. Research has shown macrophage activation and stopping diseased blood vessel development can also help in various neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory conditions, and diabetic retinopathy…
…In the past months Dr. Bradstreet has become interested in nagalese (also spelled nagalase in this document), which he describes as an enzyme “produced by cancer cells and viruses.” He thinks it unlikely that children with autism have undiagnosed cancers, and thus suspicion falls on a viral etiology. Dr. Bradstreet writes, “Viruses make the nagalese enzyme as part of their attachment proteins. It serves to get the virus into the cell and also decreases the body’s immune reaction to the virus-thereby increasing the odds of viral survival.”

THOSE EMERGING DOCTOR DEATHS: THE THEORY OF JIM MARRS, AND UNCOMFORTABLE PARALLELS WITH THE GMO ISSUE

Explosive: Is This The Real Reason Holistic Doctors Are Being Killed And Vanishing?

In recent news, we’ve seen the mysterious deaths disappearances of numerous alternative and holistic physicians and a recent video may explain why.
According to the video researcher, GcMAF is a naturally occurring process in the human body. It starts off as a Gc protein. The Gc protein in an absolutely healthy human being will create its own, natural Gc Macrophage Activating Factor (GcMAF) to help protect the human immune system.
What is being found by these doctors is that something is being introduced into the human body that is called Nagalase. This Nagalase protein is this:
Nagalase is a protein made by all cancer cells and viruses (HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, influenza, herpes, Epstein-Barr virus, and others).
Nagalase causes immunodeficiency. Nagalase blocks production of GcMAF, thus preventing the immune system from doing its job.
There is something that is being introduced into the human body that is causing this Nagalase to block the naturally occurring production of GcMAF.
Like a stealth bomber, the Nagalase enzyme synthesized in and released from a cancer cell or a virus particle pinpoints the GcMAF production facilities on the surface of your T and B lymphocytes and then wipes them out with an incredibly precise bomb. How precise? Let me put it this way: Nagalase locates and attacks one specific two-electron bond located at, and only at, the 420th amino acid position on a huge protein molecule (DBP), one of tens of thousands of proteins, each containing millions of electrons. This is like selectively taking out a park bench in a major city from six thousand miles away. More astonishing, if that is possible, Nagalase never misses its target. There is no collateral damage.
What Dr. Bradstreet found, considering that this Nagalase blocks the naturally occurring GcMAF production in the human body, he found that with autistic children, that they had a highly elevated protein count of Nagalase. Then what he determined, and what many of these other alternative medical doctors were determining was, the Nagalse is surely causing the autism.
So then they were starting to wonder, “If this is happening and it’s occurring right at the very beginning of autism, when autism is occurring, then it has to be being introduced into the human body at the time, or just before the autism is occurring in the human body which appears to be at a state of infancy, not at birth. What does that tell you? That’s right, the Nagalase inhibitor that this GcmAF protein blocker is being introduced into the human body DURING vaccination
You are intentionally having your immune system compromised with a vaccination and some children are automatically coming up with autism, depending on their blood make-up, are acquiring autism.
In the past months, Dr. Bradstreet has become interested in Nagalase, which he describes as an enzyme “produced by cancer cells and viruses.” He thinks it unlikely that children with autism have undiagnosed cancers, and thus suspicion falls on a viral etiology. Dr. Bradstreet writes, “Viruses make the Nagalase enzyme as part of their attachment proteins. It serves to get the virus into the cell and also decreases the body’s immune reaction to the virus-thereby increasing the odds of viral survival.”
Dr. Bradstreet and others believe that this Nagalase, which Dr. Bradstreet and Dr. Gonzalez have proven unequivocally, is being introduced into the body at vaccination.
Since the GcMAF naturally occurs in the body but it’s being inhibited by the introduction of Nagalase protein blocker. There is a product that is being worked on in Europe that has been blocked and is highly illegal in the United States to use because the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies want it kept out of the United States and it goes by the exact same name as the naturally occurring GcMAF. that occurs in your body. So what they were finding is that this GcMAF treatment product, which is being created, actually was reversing autism, reversing tumors, shrinking tumors, curing cancers… that’s what they were finding.
The video researcher stated the following:
“The FDA is known to have visited almost every single one of these alternative medical doctors before they died. Why?  It’s because they have found undercover, that they (these alternative doctors), were working secretly and trying to help out their patients SURVIVE… to LIVE… to reshrink their tumors, to reverse their cancers. They were finding evidence that autism was being reversed.  They were finding, as what Dr. Bradstreet has found that this protein obviously is being introduced… the Nagalase protein is being introduced at the vaccination stage of someone’s human life.”

Spanish firemen and locksmiths refuse to evict homeowners


Firemen and locksmiths in Spain are refusing to help bailiffs open ruined homeowners’ doors to throw them out of their homes.

With Spain’s unemployment rate over 26pc, the country has seen a huge amount of homeowners default on their rents or mortgage payments, prompting a wave of repossession by government-backed banks.

However, following several suicides some locksmiths are no longer willing to carry out banks’s orders to evict people from their houses.

David Ormaechea, president of the Locksmiths Union, told AFP that: “Families’ lives were being ruined and we were acting as executioners”. He added: “It was causing us tension and unease.”

The Spanish government authorities and banks have turned to the fire service to step in and break open the doors of those resisting eviction because.

Some firemen, though, have said they are unwilling evict people from their homes.

Last Tuesday, firefighters in Coruna, a town in Northern Spain, were called to help evict an 85-year-old woman who had defaulted on her rent.

A crowd of protestors gathered outside the apartment to block the eviction. When the firefighters arrived they refused to open the door and some of them joined in the protest.

Since then, firefighters in other regions such as Catalonia and Madrid have followed their example.

“We come to the aid of people in emergencies. It is contradictory to help the banks that are putting people’s lives in danger by evicting them,” said Antonio del Rio, a labour union representative for the Catalonia fire service.

“The only thing we do is help citizens,” said Pedro Campos, a Madrid-based fireman.

Greece is Disaster Capitalism-Catherine Austin Fitts ~ Greg Hunter


Investment banker Catherine Austin Fitts says the world is getting tired of what she calls “disaster capitalism.” What does she mean? Look no further than Greece as Fitts explains, “Greece essentially looks to me like disaster capitalism. You are trying to get another positive return by liquidation, but the reality is if you liquidated the global economy, you are not going to get a positive return. The game can go on for a while. The reason I said Greece and Puerto Rico rang the bell is you can see this game is getting very old. The IMF (International Monetary Fund) . . . is saying this is not sustainable. This debt is not sustainable. This is why this is important. When we loan money to somebody and it is predatory, we reduce the ability of paying back the debt. So it’s a lose/lose situation. If you skim off the top as a predator, you get a kick, but the reality is the longer you play that game, you cannot get a return on the money you have stolen. What I am saying is it is a spiral down, and it’s not going to work. . . . The IMF is saying we can get more debt paid back with a sustainable plan than we can get with an unsustainable plan.”

Fitts says what you are really seeing is change of attitude from around the planet on how to grow the economy. Fitts explains, “What is beginning to happen is the feedback loop is coming back around, and it’s coming in from the BRIC nations. It’s coming in from the Greek people, and what they are saying is we need an economy that produces wealth if we’re going to get anything done. Whether it’s getting kids working again or get debt paid back, there is a rational voice that is coming back through, and it’s a human voice that is saying inhuman plans can only depopulate or bring war.”

Fitts goes on to say, “The central banking warfare model is wearing thin. There are three things you can do: You can have war, you can have depopulation or you can have change. The voice you are hearing coming back from the BRICS, the voice you are hearing coming back from the Greek people is let’s try change. The IMF is saying . . . you know they have a point. Puerto Rico and Greece have rung that bell that says we have to create value in the real economy. You can’t eat it if you don’t grow it, and we can’t grow it if we are all engaged in disaster capitalism.”

So, could they crash the bond market by giving debt relief to overly indebted countries like Greece? Fitts says, “It depends on how you do it. In theory, yes, anything is possible. The big issue is you have been printing money and printing money and putting it into the bond market and not letting it get into the real economy. You get huge asset bubbles. You think asset bubbles are bad now, wait until you see that money come across. . . . This money is going to have to leave the bond market. It’s going to have to go into real estate. It’s going to have to go into equities. It’s going to have to build infrastructure. It’s going to have to do all these things and it can’t work, and we are going to have a mess if we don’t have the leadership to bring it out in a way that is going to be productive, which is possible. If you look at the leadership in the United States, that’s not the leadership to do that.”

On the deal to curtail Iran’s nuclear program, Fitts says, “I think Kerry and the G-7 did the right thing. This whole thing needs to de-escalate. This deal will bring the oil price down, and the Saudis are scared. . . . This is bringing another $20 billion a year on to the market in oil revenues.” I think this deal will not de-escalate violence in the Middle East. I say it will make a bad situation worse and violence will escalate. Fitts and I have a lively debate on this issue. It includes Israel, Saudi Arabia and other Arab neighbors teaming up against Iran over this this deal.

Ashely Madison Hacked: America’s 37 Million ‘Cheaters’ About To Be Exposed


Note: Absolutely hilarious, the ramifications have infinite blackmail potential! Who needs expensive, time consuming “Honey Pot” operations to obtain blackmail evidence on powerful peeps, when hackers can download ALL the dirt onto a flash drive for a fee? Priceless…

Tyler Durden's picture


Two months ago, AdultFriendFinder was hacked, exposing fuck buddy friend-finding federal employees among its 3.5 million user ‘exposure’. Today, as KrebsOnSecurity reports, large caches of data stolen from online cheating site AshleyMadison.com have been posted online by an individual or group that claims to have completely compromised the company’s user databases, financial records and other proprietary information (including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies). The hacker group “The Impact Team” manifesto concludes, “too bad for those [37 million] men, they’re cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion.”

As KrebsOnSecurity reports, the still-unfolding leak could be quite damaging to some 37 million users of the hookup service, whose slogan is “Life is short. Have an affair.”

The data released by the hacker or hackers — which go by the name The Impact Team — includes sensitive internal data stolen from Avid Life Media (ALM), the Toronto-based firm that owns AshleyMadison as well as related hookup sites Cougar Life and Established Men.

Reached by KrebsOnSecurity late Sunday evening, ALM Chief Executive Noel Biderman confirmed the hack, and said the company was “working diligently and feverishly” to take down ALM’s intellectual property. Indeed, in the short span of 30 minutes between that brief interview and the publication of this story, several of the Impact Team’s Web links were no longer responding.

“We’re not denying this happened,” Biderman said. “Like us or not, this is still a criminal act.”

In a long manifesto posted alongside the stolen ALM data, The Impact Team said it decided to publish the information in response to alleged lies ALM told its customers about a service that allows members to completely erase their profile information for a $19 fee.

According to the hackers, although the “full delete” feature that Ashley Madison advertises promises “removal of site usage history and personally identifiable information from the site,” users’ purchase details — including real name and address — aren’t actually scrubbed.

“Full Delete netted ALM $1.7mm in revenue in 2014. It’s also a complete lie,” the hacking group wrote. “Users almost always pay with credit card; their purchase details are not removed as promised, and include real name and address, which is of course the most important information the users want removed.”

Their demands continue:

Avid Life Media has been instructed to take Ashley Madison and Established Men offline permanently in all forms, or we will release all customer records, including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses, and employee documents and emails. The other websites may stay online.”

“Too bad for those men, they’re cheating dirtbags and deserve no such discretion,” the hackers continued. “Too bad for ALM, you promised secrecy but didn’t deliver. We’ve got the complete set of profiles in our DB dumps, and we’ll release them soon if Ashley Madison stays online. And with over 37 million members, mostly from the US and Canada, a significant percentage of the population is about to have a very bad day, including many rich and powerful people.”

As the Wall Street Journal noted in a May, the company had voiced plans for an initial public offering in London later this year with the hope of raising as much as $200 million.

“Given the breach at AdultFriendFinder, investors will have to think of hack attacks as a risk factor,” the WSJ wrote. “And given its business’s reliance on confidentiality, prospective AshleyMadison investors should hope it has sufficiently, er, girded its loins.”

So much for that IPO because that word, it definitely did not mean what the company’s equity sponsors thought it means…

Finally, it is time to rotate out of the massively profitable 3x levered Belgian caterer ETF and dump it all in the 3x levered US divorce lawyer ETF which Larry Fink’s Blackrock is furiously working on right now.

Maher Tells Bernie Sanders: Your Campaign Must Be Working ‘You’ve Got Hillary Talking Like Elizabeth Warren’


The HBO host seems to be taking a liking to the Vermont senator.

Friday night Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) got the rock star treatment from Real Time host Bill Maher who praised the darkhorse candidate’s campaign for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, telling the fiercely liberal senator that his run from the left has forced consensus favorite Hillary Clinton to start “talking like Elizabeth Warren.

“Walking onto the stage to chants of “Ber-nie, Ber-nie” the Vermont independent sat down and explained that his campaign was about something other than normal politics, stating, “It’s a very radical idea: we’re going to tell the truth.”

“The truth is that, for forty years, the middle class of this country has been disappearing. And there has been a huge transfer of billions of dollars from working families to the top one-tenth of one percent.” Sanders said. “And what the people of this country are saying is, ‘Enough is enough, our government, our country, belongs to all of us, not just a few billionaires.’”

“So let’s dig down a little deeper into the campaign,” Maher replied. “I mean you are closing the gap on Hillary, but obviously she’s still way ahead with women. You do very well with men and the older — older men, especially. Now some women you will just never get…I don’t mean you personally.”

Maher went on to advise the candidate that “You could do well with younger voters. They liked Ron Paul.  He was not a young-un, but he had that same authenticity thing going,” before jokingly asking Sanders “Are you on Tinder?”

Sanders explained that his campaign has “a very active social media effort.”

“In the Senate, we have more people on our Facebook page, than any other member of the United States Senate,” he said, before adding, “Look, what we want to do is tap the idealism of the kids. And what the kids are saying, for example, is that this country should lead the world in transforming our energy system and dealing with climate change. And that solution we’re going to talk about a whole lot.”

Disloyal to the United States? Wesley Clark Wants to Detain You For Duration of War on Terror


By Activist Post

Former US General Wesley Clark went on MSNBC to promote detaining domestic ‘radicals’ or people ‘disloyal to the United States’ in internment camps for the duration of the war on terror.

The host asked Clark “How do we fix self-radicalized lone wolves, domestically?”

First, Clark cites people who lose a job or break up with a girlfriend as being especially dangerous. Next he tells us what he’d do to those who’re disloyal to the U.S. during the war on terror.

“In World War II, if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech. We put them in a camp,” Clark continued, “They were prisoners of war.”

“If these people are radicalized, and they don’t support the United States, and they’re disloyal to the United States, as a matter of principle, fine, that’s their right, but it’s our (the government’s) right and our obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict. And I think we’re going to have to get increasingly tough on this.”

Note: Talk about a slippery slope! My question is, exactly how does the government define ‘domestic radicals’ or people ‘disloyal to the United States’? Seems like there’s a lot of room for interpretation in defining these terms….

California Water Wars Escalate: State Changes Law, Orders Farmers To Stop Pumping ~ ZeroHedge


Tyler Durden's picture

“In the water world, the pre-1914 rights were considered to be gold,” exclaimed one water attorney, but as AP reports, it appears that ‘gold’ is being tested as California water regulators flexed their muscles by ordering a group of farmers to stop pumping from a branch of the San Joaquin River amid an escalating battle over how much power the state has to protect waterways that are drying up in the drought. As usual, governments do what they want with one almond farmer raging “I’ve made investments as a farmer based on the rule of law…Now, somebody’s changing the law that we depend on.” This is not about to get any better as NBCNews reports, this drought is of historic proportions – the worst in over 100 years.

The current drought has averaged a reading of -3.67 over the last three years, nearly twice as bad as the second-driest stretch since 1900, which occurred in 1959.

 

Other studies using PDSI data drawn from tree-ring observations reaching even further back in time reveal similar findings. One such study from University of Minnesota and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute researchers showed the current drought is California’s worst in at least 1,200 years.

And as AP reports, regulatords are changing the laws to address the problems…

The State Water Resources Control Board issued the cease and desist order Thursday against an irrigation district in California’s agriculture-rich Central Valley that it said had failed to obey a previous warning to stop pumping. Hefty fines could follow.

The action against the West Side Irrigation District in Tracy could be the first of many as farmers, cities and corporations dig in to protect water rights that were secured long before people began flooding the West and have remained all but immune from mandatory curtailments.

“I’ve made investments as a farmer based on the rule of law,” said David Phippen, an almond grower in the South San Joaquin Irrigation District. “Now, somebody’s changing the law that we depend on.”

Phippen said his grandfather paid a premium price in the 1930s for hundreds of acres because it came with nearly ironclad senior water rights.

Phippen said he takes those rights to the bank when he needs loans to replant almond orchards or install new irrigation lines. He fears that state officials are tampering with that time-tested system.

Several irrigation districts have filed unresolved legal challenges to stop the curtailments demanded by the state.

Among them is the West Side Irrigation District, which claimed a victory in a ruling last week by a Sacramento judge who said the state’s initial order to stop pumping amounted to an unconstitutional violation of due process rights by not allowing hearings on the cuts.

Superior Court Judge Shelleyanne Chang also indicated, however, that the water board can advise water rights holders to curtail use and fine them if the agency determines use exceeded the limit.

West Side is a small district with junior water rights, but the ruling also has implications for larger districts with senior rights.

West Side’s attorney Steven Herum said the order issued Thursday was prompted after the judge sided with his client.

“It is clear that the cease-and-desist order is retaliatory,” Herum said. “It’s intended to punish the district.”

Still the farmers face an uphill battle…

Buzz Thompson, a water rights expert at Stanford Law School, expects California to prevail in the fight to pursue its unprecedented water cuts because courts have consistently expanded its authority.

“It’s only when you get into a really serious drought that you finally face the question,” he said.

California is an anomaly among Western states in the way it treats water rights. Thompson said other states use widespread meters and remote sensors to measure consumption or don’t provide special status to those with property next to natural waterways.

“In any other state, this wouldn’t be a question,” he said.

California rights holders are going to have to abide by more strict measurement requirements starting next year after fighting several attempts to overhaul the rules for decades, said Andy Sawyer, a longtime attorney at the water board.

“They long thought it’s nobody else’s business,” said Lester Snow, executive director of the California Water Foundation, which advocates for better measurement of water consumption to improve management.

The Water Wars are just beginning and, it appears, with big oil still exempt, the small businessman and average joe face the costs…

Chicago’s Rebel Rabbi Standing with Palestinians: “We Must Stand with the Oppressed and Call Out the Oppressor”


An Interview with Brant Rosen

rabbi-brant-rosen

If you’ve heard of Rabbi Brant Rosen, chances are that you know about his vocal and principled stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Rosen has been on a personal journey ever since Israel’s 2008-2009 Operation Cast Lead, the brutality of which compelled him to question his beliefs about the State of Israel and Zionism. Much of this journey unfolded in public as Rosen courageously wrote about his evolving views on Israel/Palestine in his well-read blog, Shalom Rav. These blog posts and some of the responses to them formed the basis for his 2012 book “Wrestling in the Daylight: A Rabbi’s Path To Palestinian Solidarity.”Rosen is the founder of the Jewish Voice For Peace Rabbinical Council and for 17 years he was the Rabbi of the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation in Evanston. He stepped down from this pulpit in September and took a position as the Midwest Regional Director of the American Friends Service Committee. On July 5th, he announced the founding of a new community called Tzedek Chicago. I contacted Rabbi Rosen earlier this week to learn more about his politics, identity, and new community.

When did unquestioning support for the State of Israel become a centerpiece of Jewish identity in the United States? Why did this happen?

Israel became a centerpiece of Jewish identity following the trauma of the Holocaust – an identity which became more or less solidified following Israel’s military victory in the Six Day War. In retrospect, it is staggering to contemplate how quickly and thoroughly this new narrative has taken hold of the Jewish community. In a nutshell, it is a narrative that teaches that the traumas of the past will inevitably become our future unless the Jewish people embrace the ways of empire, nationalism and militarism. I do believe that this narrative is in many ways a betrayal of a central narrative that has sustained the Jewish people for centuries: the story of a people born out of the ashes of a Temple destroyed by the world’s mightiest empire – who responded by creating a tradition rooted in an allegiance to a Power yet greater than any human power.

We have integrated this new narrative so thoroughly that we rarely stop to consider its implications. There are so many examples I could point to; to cite but one simple instance: virtually every synagogue in America has a US and Israeli flag on either side of the Aron Kodesh [the cabinet in a Synagogue where the Torah scrolls are kept].In other words, in our most sacred Jewish spaces, we are literally bowing down to physical symbols of national power. This is a powerful demonstration of how completely this new narrative has taken hold of post-Holocaust Jewish identity. To my my mind, it is nothing short of idolatry – and our inability to recognize it as such shows just how deeply we have bought into a religious mindset that radically values physical/military power over spiritual power.

What does solidarity with the Palestinian people mean to you?

By standing in solidarity with the Palestinian people, I believe I am fulfilling one of the central spiritual directives of my religious tradition – namely that we must stand with the oppressed and call out the oppressor. It’s really that simple. Now of course, I’m not so naïve as to deny the enormous complexities that are raised when Jews stand in solidarity with Palestinians. I know full well that in the eyes of many in my community, standing in solidarity with Palestinians is a profoundly transgressive act.

Since so many frame this issue as a binary conflict between “us and them,” to stand in solidarity with Palestinians must mean that I am choosing not to stand with my own people. I reject this binary meme in no uncertain terms. I believe to my core that standing with the Palestinians is one of the most Jewish things I can do. In the end, my solidarity is not with Palestinians alone but with all who have suffered from prejudice, oppression and structural racism. Needless to say, this has historically included Jews as well. So in the end, I view solidarity as an act that defies “zero sum attitudes.” It is ultimately an act of love that will ensure a future of dignity and security for all.

How do you respond to people who claim that the BDS Movement is antisemitic?

I defy anyone to read the 2005 Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions and explain to me how it is rooted in anything other than values of equality and international human rights – and it is certainly not anti-Semitic to hold Israel to these standards. There is nothing anti-Semitic in the three essential goals of BDS: namely, an end to the occupation, equal rights for Palestinian citizens of Israel and a recognition of the Palestinian right of return. And there is certainly nothing anti-Semitic about the time honored nonviolent means by which the BDS movement seeks these ends.

Now I know there are those who claim that the “double standard” created by BDS is somehow anti-Semitic; in other words of all the odious regimes in the world, why is Israel being singled out for this treatment? This claim utterly misunderstands the nature of the BDS call – and of the nature of solidarity itself. The BDS call was a call that came from Palestinians themselves. It comes from a myriad of Palestinian civil society organizations and institutions that are asking the international community to give popular support to their cause. The BDS call was not initiated by campus organizers, Protestant church groups, or international solidarity organizations. On the contrary, these groups have made the decision, in many cases after considerable deliberation, to respond to the Palestinian call for support and solidarity. So the real question, it seems to me, is not “What about all these other horrible countries?” but rather: “In the face of international political inaction to solve this unjust situation, the Palestinians have put out a call and are asking for our support and solidarity. Do we believe their call is worth responding to or not?”

In September you announced that you would be stepping down from your pulpit at the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation in Evanston. What precipitated this move?

I made the decision to resign from JRC because my activism on the issue of Israel-Palestine had created too much stress for my congregation – and for me as well. For the past several years, I have become a increasingly high profile Palestine solidarity activist and we had been doing our best to manage this complicated reality for many years.  To their credit, JRC’s congregational leadership consistently and courageously supported my right and responsibility to speak my conscience on this issue even when most of them did not agree with me politically. In the end, however, I think my activism was just too painful for some members of my congregation. Last year, they became more vocal and organized in expressing their upset – and the atmosphere soon became so intolerable that it became impossible for me to do my job any more. I want to stress that my decision to leave was mine and mine alone. It was not easy for me to leave a congregation to which I had been devoted and that had been home to me and my family for almost twenty years. But if I’m truly honest with myself, I don’t know that it could have ended any other way, given the circumstances.

Do you have any regrets about leaving?

I have great sadness about leaving JRC, but no regrets. Given my current path, I don’t think it would be fair to the congregation – or to me – for me to remain there. While it was a traumatic break for us, I have incredible fondness for the congregation and its members and am proud of what we were able to accomplish there. I wish them nothing but the best.

What is Tzedek Chicago?

Tzedek Chicago is an avowedly non-Zionist congregation rooted in core values of spiritual openness, anti-racism, universalism and solidarity with the oppressed. It is a conscious attempt to create a Jewish spiritual community that celebrates Judaism as a global diaspora-based spiritual peoplehood. I will be serving as its rabbi part time while continuing to work in my full time capacity at AFSC.

Most liberal congregations describe themselves with words such as “open,” “inclusive,” and “welcoming.” Although it might sound odd to say, Tzedek Chicago is really not an inclusive community. We’re an intentional community rooted in very specific values.  We’re not for everyone and we don’t pretend to be.

At this point in my career, I’m not interested in creating another liberal Jewish congregation. There are plenty of them out there and some of them do wonderful, creative, important work. However, over the years I’ve increasingly met people who seek Jewish community but are kept at bay from congregational life because Zionism and support for the State of Israel assumes such a prominent role in virtually every American synagogue. I’m meeting more and more Jews who have no interest at all in enrolling their children in a religious school that considers a personal connection with the State of Israel to be a core Jewish educational value. Quite frankly, many Jews – particularly younger generations of Jews – are asking what this over-militarized ethnic nation state has to do with their Jewish identity.

Now for those who do place a high value on Israel and Zionism, there are a myriad of synagogues to choose from. But for those who do not, there really are no choices at all to speak of. Tzedek Chicago really is an attempt to create a Jewish congregational community for those whose Judaism is not dependent upon identification with Jewish nation-statism. And by extension for those who seek a Judaism rooted in sacred values of such as nonviolence, anti-racism and universalism.

25 Signs That The Global Elite’s Ship Is About To Sink


This is a compilation of developments for the first half of 2015 lending credence to the notion this year will be a major nexus point of change. This was prophesied to some degree by the Blood Moon Tetrad which we reported on earlier this year.

Make no mistake about it. The tide has turned on the global elite and there will be no going back. A new day is rising for humanity as those who have planned for complete control are now being exposed, cornered and investigated from many different angles. There is no need to buy into the fear-based propaganda the major media and even several alternative media outlets dispense. Very good things are happening and even better things are coming. Let’s take a look at some of the major stories that have occurred in the last 8 weeks alone. Piecing the puzzle together, we see that the jig is up and the events surrounding it are growing in size and speed.
1. 57 Nations approved as founding members of the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. Notable countries who signed on June 29th, 2015 include Russia, India, Iran, Switzerland, Germany, France, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Indonesia, the UK, Italy and Austria. Notables who did not join are the U.S. and Japan.
2. May 12th, 2015: Russia asks Greece to join the BRICS Alliance. Notice the BRICS trend in the stories to follow.
3. May 24th, 2015: The Pentagon released documents to Judicial Watch, a government watchdog law firm,
proving that the US Government played a central role in creating ISIL. Interestingly, the mainstream media failed to cover this story. A few weeks later, ex US Intelligence officials confirm the report.
4. May 31st, 2015: Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras writes an open letter, warns European leaders they are “making a grave mistake,” and suggests they re-read Hemingways’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls.”
5. June 2nd, 2015: The U.S. Federal Government was hacked as the personal data of 4 million current, former and prospective employees believed to have been breached. 3 weeks later FBI Director James Comey told US Senators the actual number could be 18 million. Some believe the hack was coordinated to gather further evidence
of crimes by certain government officials. More on that further down.
6. June 2nd, 2015: Kentucky Senator Rand Paul calls for the U.S. Government to declassify 28 pages in the 9/11 attack report that the Bush Administration blacked out.
7. June 3rd, 2015: Famous musician Akon announces his Solar Academy will bring solar power to over 600 million people in Africa. A major victory for clean energy and humanity.
8. June 4th, 2015: Whistle-blower Edward Snowden says a “profound difference” had occurred since releasing the NSA documents and that the balance of power has shifted in our world.  Is he referring to the BRICS Alliance?
9. June 5th, 2015: “There Will Be A Reset of The Financial Industry.” The International Monetary Fund says the Chinese yuan is no longer undervalued. This sets the stage for the yuan to be recognized as a global reserve currency, something the U.S. Dollar (which is backed by war and oil) does not like.
10. June 7, 2015: Deutsche Bank, one of the world’s largest banks, co-CEO’s Jain and Fitschen resign. Two days later, German prosecutors raided the Bank’s headquarters in a criminal tax-fraud probe.
11. June 15, 2015: China says the G-7 Summit in Germany was a “gathering of debtors.” They mean this literally as the Bretton Woods western financial system is based on debt. And in fact, the entire western financial system has been running illegally and is technically bankrupt. For more on the real history of Bretton Woods and its connection to JFK, The Global Collateral Accounts and the gold standard, read here.
12. June 17th, 2015 is quite the day with the next four stories all being reported at that time. First, JP Morgan’s number 2, the Vice Chairman Jimmy Lee, suddenly and unexpectedly passes over. Since late 2013, the list of high-level banking officials to have passed over has grown to 70. Clearly, something is happening.
13. June 17, 2015: Russia and China announced that all natural gas and crude oil sales between
the two countries will now be done in Chinese yuan( formerly the U.S. Dollar) and will be convertible into Russian Rubles. The U.S. Dollar hegemony is waning.
14. June 17, 2015: The State of Texas has signed a bill that calls for the repatriation of their gold from the Federal Government. When asked what would happen if the government tried to steal back the gold, State Representative Giovanni Capriglione said this: There is a motto in the office of almost every state legislator in Texas, and it’s a flag that we have [from the Texas Revolution], it’s below a cannon and what the motto says is, “Come and Take it.”
15. June 17, 2015: Greece’s Hellenic Parliament’s Debt Truth Committee released a report stating that the debt Greece “owes” is illegal, illegitimate and odious, according to international law. Further, they stated the IMF and ECB ( European Central Bank) having illegally and knowingly imposed these illegitimate debts upon Greece and other nations. A direct call out to the global banking cartel.
16. June 18th, 2015: Baron David de Rothschild has been indicted by a French court over financial fraud. French police have been ordered by the court to track down Baron. The Rothschild family has long been viewed as the family sitting atop the global financial ponzi scheme. Lawyer Antonio Flores told reporters, ” it’s a real breakthrough moment for everyone involved.”
17. June 18, 2015: In a 2-1 ruling, the 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals says Bush era officials can be held liable for detaining innocent people after the 9/11 attack. Will this lead to some major arrests?
18. June 19, 2015: While European leaders try to save face on the debt crisis, Greek PM Alexis Tsipras was in Russia and gave a speech at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, stating that “the economic center of the planet has already shifted” and that new powers are playing an “important role on an economic and geopolitical level.” * Reread story header number 8…BRICS, anyone? Oh, and Greece and Russia signed a €2 billion gas pipeline deal that day too…a strategic economic and geopolitical game-changer.
19. July 5th, 2015: Greece votes “NO” to the creditors’ bailout offer. This is a massive stance for humanity that Greece just took against the banking elite. As of this writing, a “deal” has been reached but is expected to fall apart in the coming days. Kicking the can down the road does not solve the issue, but rather speeds up the revolution mindset of many frustrated Greek citizens. September/October is when many financial experts are saying that some fireworks are to be expected. 
21. July 8th, 2015: On this day, several strange events occurred. The NYSE was taken down for multiple hours, the Wall Street Journal was taken offline just after the stock exchange went down, United Airlines was forced to ground all of its flights nationwide due to computer “issues,” and 2,500 people losing power in Washington D.C. This whistle-blower journalist just wrote that his Pentagon sources said the Pentagon/BRICS Alliance took it down as a “dry run.”
22. July 7th, 2015: Backing up one day we see that the hacking group Anonymous tweeted this on the evening prior to the stock exchange hack: Wonder if tomorrow is going to be bad for Wall Street….we can only hope. 
David Wilcock has previously written a detailed document stating that Anonymous is working with certain patriotic US Military forces to legally take down the banking elite.. This aligns nicely with what the whistle-blower journalist, Benjamin Fulford, just wrote this week about the Pentagon and BRICS Alliance in the previous story.
23. July 14th, 2015: Iran, China, Russia, France, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. reach a historic deal on Iran’s nuclear program. Entire books could be written on the geopolitical, financial and technological implications of this move. There are also reports that the reality of this situation is that Iran has free energy technology and will be using this to help bring down the banking/political/oil industry elite. This would make sense as the strongest opponents to this deal have been Israel and its Prime Minister and several American politicians like the Bushes, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. 
24. July 15th, 2015: Santa Cruz County votes to stop doing business with 5 major banks, including JP Morgan Chase, Barclays, Citigroup, Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS. Watch this set off a chain reaction in those who will follow suit.
25. Now: You are here on the planet at this time to make a wonderful contribution. Please continue playing your role for the benefit of us all.

Tennessee Woman Arrested For Printing Money: “All These Other Bitches Get To Print Money So I Can Too”


 Note: As the Frequency Shift begins to take hold and people from all walks of like “wake-up”, this blog editor has a feeling we’ll see evidence of the “Divine Comedy” busting loose everywhere. Over the last couple weeks, the best daily laughs have been derived from skimming the headlines at ZeroHedge.com where bankster manipulation behind global economic collapse is so obvious, it’s seriously beginning to resemble a “Three Stooges” show….
Tyler Durden's picture

In what is either the best example why one should never believe anything they read on the internet, or just blatant frontrunning of the last QE by a few years, earlier this week a woman from Kingsport, Tennessee was arrested for counterfeiting money. That in itself is not surprising – it was her justification why she did it: she told police that she thought she was doing nothing wrong because she had read online that President Barack Obama made a new law allowing her to print her own money.

Pamela Downs, 45

TimesNews reports that police were called to a local grocery store on Sunday night in regards to a complaint about counterfeit money. When the reporting officer arrived, he spoke with a gas station clerk who said that just prior to the officer’s arrival, a white female had handed him a $5 bill, which he suspected to be counterfeit.

Since the bill had been printed on regular computer paper and each side had been glued together (but was falling apart), the officer immediately recognized the bill as a fake.

The officer spoke with the female, identified as Pamela Downs, 45. After initially responding that she had gotten the fake bill from a gas station, Downs was asked by the officer if her purse could be searched, to which she agreed. Inside her purse, the officer found a $100 which was also counterfeit, according to the report. The bill was printed in black and white and the backside of the bill was upside down.

A couple of receipts from Walmart were also found inside the purse, showing Downs had purchased copy paper and a printer.

At that point she was arrested, and she gave the best money-counterfeiting “defense” we have heard in a long time:

I don’t give a ****, all these other bitches get to print money so I can too.

It was not immediately clear which “bitches” she was referring to.

The police then searched the apartment and found several items consistent with being used to print counterfeit currency including paper, scissors, glue and a printer.  Several more counterfeit bills, both cut and uncut, were located at the apartment. Officers estimated the total to be around $30,000 to $50,000.

While at the jail, Downs reportedly told the officer the receipts that were found were items she used to print money in her apartment.

And back to the rationalization: “She then told officers she read online that President Obama had made a new law that permitted her to print her own money because she is on a fixed income, the report stated.

She was charged with criminal simulation and counterfeiting.

While there are literally countless angles one can go with this story, maybe the best conclusion is that if only she had waited a few more years before printing her own money with the “president’s blessing”, all of this unpleasantness could have been avoided.

Portents and signs: Doubled-headed bullock sold at auction in Mareeba, Australia


Image

Two faces! This unnamed two-face bullock was successfully sold at Mareeba Saleyards by Queensland Rural selling agent Jack Shepherd

For a bullock with two heads, he’s mighty healthy.

A cattle saleyard in Mareeba, North Queensland, hosted an unusual sight on Tuesday when a livestock agent arrived to hawk a two-faced cow.

Its second face, mounted on top of its first, had one eye, a single tooth and functional nostrils, according to the saleyard. It was in ‘great condition’.

‘Mate, he’s as fat as a fool!’ said Elders selling agent Mark Peters, who witnessed the animal’s purchase yesterday.

Mr Peters said: ‘It was an absolute prime condition animal, he just had two faces’.

Unsurprisingly, the two-faced animal attracted curious glances at the saleyards.

‘It received a fair amount of attention,’ said Queensland Rural livestock agent Jack ‘Jacko’ Shephard, who sold the bullock.

Mr Shephard said he had not seen another two-faced cow during his 17 years on the job, although he had seen other abnormalities.

The 440kg animal successfully sold for $537AUD, or 122 cents per kilo.

But the future is not bright for this cow.

He was purchased by an abattoir.
