Former NBC boss asserts his grandson damaged by vaccines ~ Jon Rappoport


Former NBC boss asserts his grandson damaged by vaccines

by Jon Rappoport

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

The roof is beginning to cave in on the vaccine empire.

Now, in the wake of the unsuccessful attempt to censor the film Vaxxed (trailer), we have Bob Wright, the former CEO of media giant, NBC Universal, authoring a new book, “The Wright Stuff: From NBC to Autism Speaks.”

In its review of the book, Accuracy in Media provides a devastating quote from Wright about his autistic grandson:

“Right after he got the standard one-year vaccinations, he developed a very high fever and screamed for hours. Katie [Wright’s daughter] was so frightened she called her husband to come home from work and they put the baby in an ice bath to bring down the fever. When they called the doctor they were told the reaction was completely normal.”

Yes, completely normal in the eyes of a lunatic licensed to practice medicine.

Normal, if brain damage is something parents should be expected to shrug off.

Normal, if destroying the life of a child, through officially sanctioned means, is simply written off as the cost of doing pharmaceutical business.

Wright goes on to say that he tried, without a shred of success, to convince Bush and Obama they needed to improve vaccine safety. According to Wright, the Bush people feared negative press reaction, and Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett killed the idea.

In the past few days, a long-time blogger for Huffington Post, Lance Simmens (twitter), submitted a positive review of Vaxxed. It was posted, then deleted—and Simmens’ account at Huff Po was canceled without notice. More censorship. The geniuses at Huff Po haven’t gotten the memo yet: blacking out information about the film only gives it more legs. Do they even have a press operation over there? I always assumed Huff Po was built as a façade/cardboard box, in order to sell it. That objective was achieved in 2010, when AOL gobbled it up for $315 million. What an extraordinary hustle.

Huff Po can’t even stomach allowing a positive review of Vaxxed to see the light of day. I wonder how they feel about vaccines causing brain damage—I mean the actual occurrence of it. Perhaps they don’t care. Perhaps they’re so far removed from the truth they don’t even think about it. But I’m willing to bet at least a few people on the payroll know the reality of it, and under the surface they’re boiling.


exit from the matrix


The CDC has large numbers of vaccine scandals buried in their files. One of them involves a vast over-exaggeration of flu deaths in the US every year. As researcher Peter Doshi noted, years ago, the old canned figure for annual flu deaths, 36,000, was a gross exaggeration. One year, the actual number of confirmed flu deaths in America—where the flu virus was positively identified—was, wait for it: 18. Of course, the CDC uses those flu-death stats to convince Americans they must take the flu vaccine.

Stay tuned.

Rob Kirby-Dollar Devaluation Clock About to Strike Midnight ~ Greg Hunter


Could there be a dramatic and overnight reduction in the value of the dollar? Kirby contends, “I think this is coming in very short order now. The trail of bread crumbs is indicating this is what is afoot right now.”

Does that mean dollar devaluation and a bank “holiday” coming soon? Kirby says, “How quickly this happens is open for conjecture, but that is clearly the direction we are heading. We are unmistakably headed in that direction. The only real question is how long these criminal central bankers can MacGyver the system together and keep it together with elastic bands, paperclips and bungie cords. This is going down. This is going to happen. I think it’s going down in the next two or three weeks. . . .We’ve all speculated that this would eventually happen. Now we are here, and the clock is about to strike midnight.”

What have the President and the VP been told by the Fed Chairman in these emergency meetings this week? Kirby says, “My guess is they are probably explaining to them just how deep the pooh is that they are about to be thrown into. It’s deep, and it’s going to be over their heads. . . . Historically, when banks have nothing else they can do, they take us to war.”

If they don’t take us to war? Kirby says, “Everything is on the table. . . . My thinking is there are an awful lot of U.S. dollars out there right now that are going to be coming home to America. . . . The adjustment in global reserve accounts could create a tsunami of dollars coming back to America in a very, very short period of time. That could trigger something approaching a hyperinflationary event or, at least, stagflation and super inflationary pressure. That’s the minimum occurring very, very soon.”

About the recent revelation of Deutsche Bank suppressing the price of physical gold and silver? Kirby points out, “The price rigging ultimately comes back to and will be shown that it really is an operation of the U.S. Treasury and the U.S. Federal Reserve. . . . The short interests, or the paper sales of precious metals, have been used on purpose to suppress the growing demand for precious metals, or to make it appear that people are still happy with dollars and don’t prefer precious metals to dollars. . . . Whether the U.S. central bank declares that gold or silver are not money in some hubris filled silliness doesn’t diminish the fact that gold and silver are money, and your U.S. Constitution says gold and silver are money.”

Enter The Buzzsaw ~ Hollywood Illuminati, Sex Magick & Satanic Super Bowl Ritual with Mark Dice


Illuminati infiltration of Hollywood and professional sports has created satanic celebrations at the Oscar Awards and Super Bowl, and we unmask them with Mark Dice. From Eyes Wide Shut, to Lady Gaga, and the Super Bowl halftime show celebrations of the Satanic–we try to separate the fad of illuminati imagery from the substantial effects of a mass designed mind-control. How the CIA collude with movies to brainwash people, the music industry pressure to sexualize and bend musicians to their agenda, and the voices that are actually using the medium to critique the conspiracy are revealed in this uncensored Buzzsaw hosted by Sean Stone.

GUEST BIO:
Mark Dice is the author of several popular books on secret societies and conspiracies, including The Illuminati: Facts & Fiction, Inside the Illuminati,The Bilderberg Group: Facts & Fiction, Big Brother: The Orwellian Nightmare Come True, and his newest book, The Bohemian Grove: Facts & Fiction, which are available in paperback on Amazon.com, or e-book on Kindle, iBooks, Nook or Google Play. While much of Mark’s work confirms the existence and continued operation of the Illuminati today, he is also dedicated to debunking conspiracy theories and hoaxes and separating the facts from the fiction; hence the “Facts & Fiction” subtitle for several of his books. He has a bachelor’s degree in communication from California State University.

Waking supervolcano in North Korea prompts rare collaboration with Western scientists

Rare example of collaboration with isolationist regime’s researchers helps reveal secrets of one of the world’s largest volcanoes

If it blows again, it could make Vesuvius look like a tea party.

Now, in a ground-breaking collaboration between the West and North Korea, vulcanologists are gaining new insights into Mount Paektu, on North Korea’s border with China, and whether it might blow its top any time soon.

If it does, the outcome could be catastrophic. Paektu’s last eruption, a thousand years ago, is the second largest ever recorded, topped only by the eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia in 1815.

“If it erupted, it would have impacts way beyond Korea and China,” says James Hammond of Birkbeck, University of London, one of the scientists involved.

In 946 AD, the eruption of Mount Paektu, Korea’s highest mountain, blasted 96 cubic kilometres of debris into the sky, 30 times more than the relatively puny 3.3 cubic kilometres that Vesuvius spewed over Pompeii in AD 79.

Yet despite is size and the potential impact of an eruption, little is known about this enigmatic volcano.

Growing fears

Western researchers got involved because the team investigating the volcano in North Korea, led by Ri Kyong-Song of the government’s Earthquake Administration in Pyongyang, needed access to extra scientific equipment and know-how.

Chinese vulcanologists, who have been monitoring the volcano they call Changbaishan from their side of the border, also wanted more information from the Korean side.

They and the Koreans have been monitoring the volcano closely ever since suspicious bulges were seen in and around the volcano between 2002 and 2005. These involved ground deformations measured by GPS, increased gas emissions and seismic rumbles.

“It’s a priority for both countries, and both have monitoring networks on the volcano, keeping an eye on it,” says Hammond.

Hammond and others from the West were invited to Korea in 2011 to install six seismometers at distances up to 60 kilometres from the volcano. These were sited to detect seismic waves from earthquakes elsewhere in the world passing through the ground beneath Paektu.

Seismic waves travel at different speeds through solid and molten rock, giving the researchers crucial information about what lies beneath.

The results reveal that there is indeed extensive magma beneath the volcano. “It’s a mushy mixture of molten rock and crystals that goes down right through the crust around 35 kilometres deep,” says Hammond.

It’s rare to see a partially melted type of magma with such a large fluid component throughout the whole crust, he says.

These are the first known estimates of the crustal structure of the volcano’s North Korea side and for anywhere beneath North Korea.

The partially melted crust is a potential source for magma in past eruptions and it may be associated with the recent volcanic unrest there.

At the moment, though, there’s no pool of liquid magma gathering near the surface – often a prelude to an eruption.

“One of the challenges now is to go beyond simply saying there’s magma in the crust, discovering instead how it’s sitting, how much there is and what are the implications,” says Hammond. “It’s only when it gets to a certain amount and a certain overpressure that it will erupt.”

At present, the researchers are not sure how much has to accumulate before the volcano erupts, he says.

That’s why the collaboration is set to continue for some time, with Hammond due back in Pyongyang next week. “We’ll be discussing what we’ll do over the next 12 months, and longer term over the next five to 10 years,” says Hammond.

After years working together, the two teams have got to know each other well, talking geology through an interpreter during the day, and in the evening heading for a restaurant or karaoke bar.

No politics, just science

“With what we’re doing, there’s no political element – we’re involved to understand a huge volcano, and the fact we’re having this dialogue is a great example of science transcending political differences,” says Hammond.

Ri also spent a month in the UK finalising the results and the draft for publication. “Our project is an example that it’s possible to build these collaborations and establish mutual trust,” says Hammond. “It’s been an advantage that our science doesn’t come with much political baggage.”

North Korea is keen to open doors for more scientists through an institution called Piintec, Hammond says. “The Koreans are very open to science engagement in most areas.”

“This is a bit of a first, in terms of a collaboration resulting in publication in a high-profile Western journal,” says Hammond.

So next week, when he reaches Pyongyang, he and his Korean colleagues will be celebrating, probably in a karaoke bar in Pyongyang, drinking soju, the rice liquor popular in the country.

“We get on very well,” says Hammond. “That’s why it works, through relationships and trust, and for that to work you need to understand each other.”

Delusional Judge orders company to label all-natural milk ‘IMITATION,’ and has thousands of gallons flushed down the drain


 

Friday, April 15, 2016 by: Amy Goodrich

Dairy products

(NaturalNews) For three generations, the Ocheesee Creamery, a tiny family-owned dairy farm located in Grand Ridge, Florida, has skimmed milk the old-fashioned way to produce the most natural cream, ice cream, whole milk and butter. For years, they have been selling the byproduct, skim milk, in its most natural form at the local farmers’ markets and health food stores.

While Mary Lou Wesselhoeft has always had the desire to provide her customers with the most natural products, she’s now being forced to dump about 400 gallons of skim milk each day, because a judge in Florida has ruled that they can’t call it skim milk because there are no synthetic vitamins added.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs has now forced her to call the all-natural pasteurized skim milk they produce “imitation milk,” or infuse it with synthetic vitamin A, which would make it anything but all-natural.

“I just want to tell the truth,” said Mary Lou Wesselhoeft of Ocheesee Creamery. “Our skim milk was pure skim milk, and nobody was ever confused when we called it skim milk. I refuse to lie to my customers, so I have stopped selling skim milk until I am allowed to tell the truth again.”

The controversy of our food labeling system

How can it be possible that a perfectly natural product is forced to be labeled as imitation?

The dictionary definition of skim milk is simply milk with the cream removed. Even Chief Judge Robert Hinkle couldn’t deny that.

“You know something’s been removed in order to make it skim milk,” Judge Hinkle said.

“It’s hard to call this imitation milk. It came right out of the cow,” Hinkle said. “Anyone who reads imitation skim milk would think it didn’t come out of a cow.”

However, he could not rule in favor of the creamery, because this would go against the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as well as the state laws upon which the food labeling system is based. Judge Hinkle added that most of the skim milk sold in stores has added vitamins to comply with state laws.

The Department of Agriculture notes that under state and federal law, skim milk can’t be sold as skim milk unless vitamins in the milk fat are replaced so that it has the same nutritional value as whole milk.

“Consumers have the expectation they’ll get a certain amount of nutrition,” Davis said. “(Ocheesee’s milk) is not skim milk and that disclaimer of imitation accurately portrays that. It’s either they make their product skim milk or they sell it as imitation.”

Wasting a perfect all-natural product

Mary Lou and Paul Wesselhoeft have refused to add synthetic vitamin A to their skim milk, nor will they call their natural product imitation milk.

The Wesselhoefts and their attorneys note that the state is violating their First Amendment rights by forcing them to label something they say it is not. The creamery’s attorney, Justin Pearson of the Institute for Justice, will not accept the decision, and plans to appeal the case to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

“Her entire business is based on selling pure, all-natural items and that’s exactly why her customers purchase dairy items from her. So the idea of being forced to label one of these all-natural dairy items as imitation is absurd,” he said. “It would be disastrous to her business.”

While this may take months, the creamery will continue to sell other natural dairy products, such as whole milk, cheese and butter. However, they will have to disappoint at least some of their customers, since Florida has made it impossible for them to sell skim milk. They will also be forced to keep wasting thousands of gallons of all natural skim milk, thanks to absurd state rules.

CHINA SAYS “NO DOLLARS” FOR NEW YUAN


788ff92e9a59aeb146ed681b6c832028_xl

In a shocking move likely to crush the US economy overnight, China is refusing to make its new gold-backed Yuan, convertible from or to US Dollars.  The new Yuan will be introduced next Tuesday, April 19.

When the International Monetary Fund (IMF) agreed to add the Yuan to the basket of world currencies used for Global Reserves and International Trade, they wanted China to make the Yuan more reliable as a currency. Since then, China has almost un-pegged its Yuan from the Dollar, allowing its value to fluctuate on world markets.

But for years, China has been amassing huge amounts of gold bullion; some have said their appetite for bullion has been “staggering.”  And with a new gold-backed Yuan to be issued next Tuesday, the entire world will have a choice of a new currency to use for international trade:  The old US Dollar which is backed by nothing, or the new Chinese Yuan, which is backed by gold.  Which currency would YOU use?

When this new currency is issued, countries that have been forced to use US Dollars for decades, and have had to keep billions of dollars in their foreign currency reserves, will be free to dump those dollars.  But they won’t be able to dump them to China for the new gold-backed, Yuan!

China has reportedly decided “there can be no conversion of gold-backed Yuan to or from US dollars.”  What China fears is that many countries around the world will want to trade their reserve US dollars  for the new Yuan, leaving China with mountains of worthless US dollars.  China already has several trillion in US dollar reserves and does not want or need more.

If news of this decision by China is correct, then countries around the world may just have to decide whether or not they wish to continue trading with the USA at all?

The upheaval this could cause as early as next week, would be staggering.

This is a fast-=developing story; check back.

Dramatic Turn in Brussels Glyphosate Battle


2564490Since the unexpected refusal last month of three EU member states to go along with the decision of the EU Health and Food Safety Commissioner and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to re-approve the world’s most widely used weed killing chemical, Glyphosate, dramatic and encouraging developments suggest that for the first time the power of GMO agrochemical giants like Monsanto and Syngenta, Dow and DuPont, BASF, Bayer could undergo a devastating defeat. Were this to happen, it could well be the death knell for the misbegotten Rockefeller Foundation Genetic Manipulation project that has destroyed much of Western farmland and poisoned hundreds of millions of GMO fed farm animals and humans.

On March 4, Europe’s Health and Food Safety Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis indicated that his directorate, DG SANTE, is exploring the possibility of full transparency for industry studies on pesticides.

As we described in a previous writing, the EU Commission had recommended approval of another 15-year license for the controversial glyphosate based on the suspicious determination by the EU’s corrupt EFSA that there was no reason to believe glyphosate is a carcinogen. That determination, not backed up by open disclosure of the relevant health and safety studies EFSA claimed to rely on, went totally against the 2015 determination by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) that glyphosate, the weed-killer used in most every GMO plant worldwide and most other crops and even home gardens as well, was a “probable carcinogen.”

EFSA, basing its view on a report by Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), which in turn was given it by Monsanto and other agrochemical industry groups, said it is unlikely to pose a cancer risk. IARC used only data that was in the public domain, but the corrupt German BfR based its report on secret industry studies that it refused to release to IARC or to the public.

Currently the Monsanto and other agribusiness industry studies submitted to support regulatory authorizations of pesticides are kept secret under commercial confidentiality agreements with regulators. Now Andriukaitis, clearly feeling the pressure, has said that this needs to change. He stated, “We are ready to assess the legal environment,” as there are certain legal protections on industry data. But, he added, “It’s absolutely crystal clear, we need to change today’s situation. We see different options, but at the moment, yes, the idea is to change the rules, especially keeping in mind the overriding public interest.”

On initially announcing his plans to approve re-licensing of glyphosate based on the fraudulent November, 2015 EFSA determination claiming that it was no carcinogen, EU Commissioner Andriukaitis received an open letter of protest from 96 prominent scientists, including most of the scientists of the WHO’s 2015 IARC study. The letter declared that the basis of EFSA’s research was “not credible because it is not supported by the evidence. Accordingly, we urge you and the European Commission to disregard the flawed EFSA finding.” Among other “flaws” they argued, EFSA chose to completely dismiss seven positive animal studies showing an increase in cancerous tumors.

Not only did that letter of scientists seem to have encouraged a moral rethink by Commissioner Andriukaitis. He has also received a staggering 1.5 million signed petitions from citizens and organizations across the European Union demanding a ban on further use of the highly toxic glyphosate. The totalitarian, usually arrogant EU Commission is answerable to no citizens as would be normal national politicians who can be kicked out by their voters. It’s known as the “democratic deficit” in official parlance. Brussels is an anti-democratic construction. That makes the rethink even more interesting, unless it is yet another deception by the influential agribusiness lobby.

It’s the glyphosate, stupid!

The true secret of the toxic danger of GMO crops in the animal and human food chain is gradually coming to light. It is becoming clearer that perhaps as much or even more a toxic danger for human and animal consumption of GMO corn, soy products and other GMO varieties, are the chemicals the GMO seeds are by contract agreement necessarily mated with. No farmer anywhere in the world is allowed to buy Monsanto GMO “Roundup Ready” seeds without at the same time signing a binding contract to annually buy and use Monsanto glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer. In fact, the only trait that Monsanto Roundup Ready corn or soybeans are genetically modified for is to resist the toxic killing effect of Roundup while every living biological matter around not “glyphosate resistant” is killed.

Until a recent study by the courageous group of scientists under Professor Giles-Eric Seralini at France’s Caen University, few independent scientific long-term rat studies of Roundup or glyphosate were done. Monsanto and other GMO companies refused to disclose the adjuvant chemicals paired with Roundup or other herbicides claiming “business secrets.”

Since the WHO’s March 2015 IARC determination that glyphosate, alone and in combination with adjuvant toxic chemicals was a probable human carcinogen, the dam of secrecy around glyphosate has burst. To parody the line of then Presidential candidate Bill Clinton in a debate with opponent George H.W. Bush in the 1992 election race, “It’s the glyphosate, stupid!”

Now the veil of EU secrecy surrounding studies of agriculture herbicides and pesticides is beginning to crack. The public demand for full disclosure is spreading. On March 16, three European Parliament members formally demanded, under EU rules, in a Freedom of Information request to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), full disclosure of the secret Biotech industry studies that EFSA used in their controversial risk assessment on glyphosate.

The European Parliamentarians’ letter to Bernhard Url the head of EFSA is worth quoting in part:

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as enshrined in Regulation 1049/2001 and in the Aarhus Regulation, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

There is an alarming scientific controversy between the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (IARC) with regard to the carcinogenicity of glyphosate. In March 2015, IARC concluded that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen (category 2A) . However, later that same year, in November 2015, EFSA concluded that glyphosate is “unlikely to pose a carcinogenic hazard to humans and the evidence does not support classification with regard to its carcinogenic potential.”

Proper classification of glyphosate is crucial because it potentially affects public health and entails important regulatory consequences. It is therefore vital to investigate why there are contradictory results in the EFSA and IARC assessments. To date EFSA has explained that its “evaluation considered a large body of evidence, including a number of studies not assessed by the IARC which is one of the reasons for reaching different conclusions” (EFSA news story, 12 November 2015 – http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal…). This means that the EFSA peer review is based on unpublished studies whose findings cannot yet be verified and subjected to independent scrutiny.

The need to achieve clarity in this regard is both urgent and evident. Glyphosate is used in around 750 pesticides commercialized by 91 companies across the globe. According to data published by IARC, glyphosate is registered in “over 130 countries as of 2010 and is probably the most heavily used herbicide in the world.”

By April 8 according to EU treaties and law, EFSA must reply. If they continue to stonewall, the controversy will now escalate in a major dimension. The GMO glyphosate genie is long out of the bottle.

Independent scientific test of glyphosate

Regardless of what reply the notoriously corrupt pro-GMO industry-influenced EFSA gives on April 8, the opposition to renewing the EU license for glyphosate grows daily. Beginning in May this year, Italy’s independent Ramazzini Institute in Bologna, Italy will begin preparing a long-term self-funded research study into the effects of glyphosate on rats and on modelling effects on the embryo of pregnant women. Dr Fiorella Belpoggi, director of the Institute’s Cesare Maltoni Cancer Research Centre, which will carry out the study, said: “To settle disputes between IARC and EFSA, what we need is the results of independent research such as we are proposing to carry out. Meanwhile, the precautionary principle stands.” The institute issued a statement that, “In view of the uncertainty, one simply must apply the precautionary principle and strictly limit exposure to this substance so that we don’t damage our health.” Their study will begin in 2017 once all preparations are ready.

The Ramazzini Institute has been concerned with glyphosate effects for four years. They announced that scientists all over the world helped draw up a protocol which will enable one single experiment (thus minimizing the numbers of rats involved) to evaluate and identify the risks associated with glyphosate at doses comparable with what is currently allowed in humans both in the USA and in Europe.

Notably, a recent German study revealed alarming concentrations of glyphosate in a majority of the population there. An alarming three-quarters of the German population have been contaminated by glyphosate according to a study done by the Heinrich Böll Foundation. The report analyzed glyphosate residue in urine and it concluded that, “75% of the target group displayed levels that were five times higher than the legal limit of drinking water. A third of the population even showed levels that were between ten and 42 times higher than what is normally permissible.”

All in all this is adding up to a refreshing popular revolt against the GMO death industry. Hooray for those of us who wish to live. The “killer Queens” of Monsanto, BASF, Syngenta and co. are in their greatest battle for survival on this one. Glyphosate may turn out to be the Achilles heel that kills GMO once and for all. That would be nice.

Complete MSM Blackout as Americans Protest Their Fake Presidential Election Process ~ TRUTHstreammedia


Over 500 people have been arrested now for “unlawful demonstration activity” as protests against our rigged presidential election process continue on Capitol Hill this week with over a thousand people showing up in just that one city alone, maybe more. Not only did the mainstream media fail to really cover the protests and misrepresent the reason people are protesting when they did cover it for a whole 12 seconds, but the MSM also blacked out the mass arrests, a record for the Capitol, effectively censoring the fact that people are waking up and willing to take a stand against this tyranny so that more Americans don’t join them.

Everyone who can should.

Here’s something you don’t see every day.

Officers from Ontario’s Peel Regional Police attended a temple last week for a lecture on mindfulness meditation and Buddhist philosophy.

The event at the West End Buddhist Temple and Meditation Centre was led by deputy abbot Bhante Saranapala.

“They were very nice and they liked it and they think it should be part of their daily practice,” Saranapala told The Huffington Post Canada. He offers similar lectures to young professionals, teachers and students in Canada and the U.S.

Saranapala said an officer approached him to organize the event.

“I think generally people have negative impressions about the police officers, and seeing some officers trying to do mindfulness meditation, [and] being at the front row of a Buddhist temple, they think it’s very positive.”

Saranapala — who says students gave him the nickname Urban Buddhist Monk because he “was a city monk” — said he’s offering a similar course to Ontario Provincial Police officers in May.

HERE WE GO! Austria Initiates First Ever Bank Bail-In! The Economic Collapse Is Here


RED ALERT! THE SHUT DOWN HAS BEGUN!!!!!!!

On Sunday, April 10, 2016, the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA) issued a press release for the resolution [pursuant of the Bank Recovery and Resolution Act—BaSAG – Bundesgesetz über die Sanierung und Abwicklung von Banken] of the Heta Asset Resolution AG, announcing involuntary “bail-in” measures for creditors, and even depositors.

Said to be the first “official” proposed “bail-In” of creditors, these measures included cuts to Heta’s senior liabilities by up to 54%, with extended maturities of all eligible debt to Dec. 31, 2023—to help cover an 8 billion-euro ($9.1 billion) hole in Heta’s balance sheet. This bail-in announcement was made shortly after the destabilization of the Hypo Alpe Adria bank, due to the European debt crisis of 2014.

Couple that with the ongoing economy status in Greece, Italy, Portugal, China, Japan, Venezuela, and Cyprus, and it’s NOT looking good… Because remember, these are only just TESTS…

It’s only a matter of time until ALL of this reaches American shores, and it’s EVEN at the Door.

Democracy Spring: Hundreds of protesters arrested for non-violent sit-in and march on the US capitol

Democracy Spring protesters participate in a sit-in at the U.S. Capitol to protest big money in politics, April 11, 2016 in Washington, DC.

Hundreds of Americans, many of whom are elderly, marched in support of political reform in Washington, DC, taking part in a sit-in and risking arrest as they pushed for fairer elections. RT’s “Redacted Tonight” host Lee Camp was detained as he reported from the scene.

Already, multiple arrests have been made, according to reports from those on the ground near the demonstrations.

According to RT’s correspondents, police have started releasing some of the protesters.

The sit-in comes one day after more than 400 people were arrested for participating in what has been been termed the “Democracy Spring” movement. The organization has planned for 10 days of demonstrations and mass sit-ins at the US capitol, with day two highlighting efforts from older Americans who want to see change.

“As ‘elders’ we have a moral imperative to care for and speak for future generations,” the Democracy Spring website reads. “We aim to use our wisdom and life experience to guide our actions, and stand together to create our legacy and reclaim our democracy.”

“Every voice is needed to speak up and say what we know is true – that a thriving and just democracy is the path towards a sustainable world for all children, for all life.”

As protesters marched on the US capitol, many elderly Americans held signs and chanted slogans such as: “Democracy is not for sale, [we’re] not too old to go to jail.”

“I’m not dead yet; I care deeply; I vote,” read another sign held by a demonstrator.

Social media users have reported seeing dozens of police officers out to keep an eye on the protesters and make arrests.

As part of its movement, Democracy Spring is pushing lawmakers to pass legislation that would boost the power of small campaign contributions, offer public funding for political candidates, and update the Voting Rights Act of 1965 in order to protect minority and lower-income voters at the polls.

The group is also calling for a constitutional amendment that would essentially overturn Supreme Court rulings giving corporations the ability to freely spend in elections. The amendment would end “the big money dominance of our elections and allows for Congress and the States to set overall limits on campaign spending, including prohibitions on corporate and union spending in the political process.”

Additionally, Democracy Spring wants to see Congress hold hearings and vote on filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court. The group does not have a position on whether President Barack Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland should be approved, but it does want the Senate “to fulfill its constitutional duty to hold hearings so that the American people may learn more about his positions on campaign finance and voting rights and, ultimately, take an up or down vote on the nominee.”

“Fukushima Kill List 2016” and “The Wigner Effect” *Full Interview* ~ Rad Chick


As promised, here is the list of what I have collected since Leuren Moret and I did our original “Nuked in the Skies” series covering sick celebrities, and what I have collected since “The Wigner Effect” series, in terms of aviation anomalies post-Fukushima.
“I doubt if you will ever find anything better to render death to an enemy than Wigner Dust. Fukushima is an industrial plant for creating the dust, the worse weaponized powder ever created, Wigner Dust with one exception — radioactive nano particulates; and the process of making this dust is enough to kill the entire planet, much less the continuous dust releases for thousands of years.”
~ Laurens Battis, ex-Navy Engineer.


*Note from RC: In February of 2014, we discussed ‘flying through fallout’ and the effect it has had on the health of pilots, flight crews, and frequent fliers since the Fukushima accident in Airline Anomalies Post-Fukushima. Following that interview, and in conversations with both pilots and nuclear engineers who reviewed our material, it became increasingly apparent that an even greater concern may be the compromised integrity of aircraft that have been flying through radioactive fallout for the past three-and-a-half years. So we embarked on a new journey, which involved charting the numerous aircraft emergencies and crashes post-Fukushima. We uncovered extraordinary scientific studies from weapons testing, nuclear labs, aerospace, previous nuclear accidents such as Sellafield and Chernobyl, and from the IAEA on accelerated metal fatigue and material science studies done in radioactive environments. We found similar data in regards to glass, electrical components, and computer systems. Discussions about how to approach this subject and its numerous complexities across multiple fields of science posed a unique set of challenges, and needed to be laid out carefully pre-interview so that people could easily digest this important information, regardless of their field of study. And, most importantly, keeping up with the ever-growing list of plane emergencies and crashes, and approaching each instance with a critical eye. This interview is the result of that investigation.”

Voting with your dollars: Monsanto’s profits drop 25%


The biotech giant Monsanto just released quarterly earnings statements noting that their profit has fallen by 25 percent compared to the previous year. In the last year alone, the overall value of Monsanto stock has seen a similar downward spiral, falling by nearly 30 percent since the end of Q1 2015.

Last quarter, net income was $1.06 billion, or $2.41 per share, compared to $1.42 billion, or $2.92 per share, in the same period a year ago.

Total sales for the agricultural behemoth have plummetted by double digits in the last year as well.

While Monsanto blames this downward trend on farmers cutting back on spending while being squeezed by plummeting commodity prices, they fail to mention that this trend is only within the biotech realm.

As GMO sales decrease, an almost directly proportional increase can be seen in non-GMO and organics. What’s more is the fact that the increase in organic and non-GMO sales owe absolutely nothing to the government. As the FDA greases the skids for their corporate masters, they do nothing but inhibit the growth of companies who ethically compete with them.

One example can be seen in initiatives to label GMO. In spite of a massive outpouring of support in favor of labeling GMO products, state and federal government continue to deny it. However, because of consumer demand, companies have taken it upon themselves to begin labeling their own products. Private third-party groups have also risen to the task and have created their own lists of non-GMO foods.

As more people become informed about the environmental and health effects of various aspects of the chemical-industrial farming complex, they are spending their money on alternatives. The subsequent increase in demand for organic and non-GMO has driven down costs thereby increasing availability.

Less than a decade ago, the only place to find organics was at specialty stores. However, organics now even have a presence at convenience stores.

It cannot be emphasized enough, that this massive shift in the food paradigm is due to consumer demand, i.e., voting with your dollars — not government intervention. Sadly and expectedly, the federal government is little more than a revolving door for industry insiders who use their elected and unelected authority to grant themselves special privileges to weed out their competition.

This year, for the first time, the FDA has been forced to begin testing certain food products for the presence of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Round-Up. This move by the FDA was not based on the interest of the public, but only because private companies had been exposing dangerous levels of this herbicide in everything from baby formula to beer.

The FDA’s failure to test for glyphosate was among the things the agency was criticized for in a 2014 audit by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). While stopping short of demanding that the FDA conduct glyphosate testing, the GAO said the agency should, at the very least, publicly disclose that it does not do so.

“Maybe we shamed them into it,” John Neumann, a spokesman for the GAO, told Civil Eats. The FDA is facing a follow-up evaluation from GAO in June this year.

While it once may have seemed that Monsanto was this cancer spreading across the globe in their attempt to control the world’s food supply, this image seems far less likely now as more consumers wake up to the dangers of funding such unsustainable practices.

However, although the organic industry is still growing at double-digit rates approaching $37 billion annually, we cannot let down our guard. Rest assured that the biotech insiders within the marble halls of D.C. are pining away at this very moment thinking of ways to eliminate their sustainable adversaries using government legislation.

UPDATE: Coca-Cola Recalls Dasani Water After Clear Parasite Worm Was Found In Bottles Across U.S.


UPDATE: I apologize folks, when vetting this website I didn’t look close enough at the site itself. When I saw KTLA in the url I “assumed” it was the Los Angeles news station, looked a little deeper today and it appears to be a fake news site. Please my apology’s for letting this one slip thru the cracks. Blessings, {~A~}

NEWS 4 –  If you purchase/drink Dasani water you might want to listen up. There has been a major recall by the Coca-Cola company today after several thousand bottles of their drinking water was found to be contaminated with a parasite. It has sent several hundred people to the hospital and is responsible for parasitic symptoms such as fever, rash, vomiting and stomach bloating.

This comes on the heels of a recent report in which Coca-Cola admitted that Dasani is really just “purified” tap water. The corporation admitted in January that their water brand was just purified tap water dressed in a fancy looking bottle. Like many other bottled waters, Dasani is sold at a premium price, and many people perceive it to be superior to tap water – even though it actually is just tap water.

Even though the majority of the impurities have admittedly been removed from Dasani water, and minerals added back in, these parasites have somehow worked their way into their supposedly “clean” water system which has been passed on to the consumer. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has shut down the manufacturing facility and issued a major recall on the brand. Do not drink this water! The FDA is recommending that if you have no choice but to consume the water, you MUST boil the water first to kill the parasite. Otherwise, it will host itself in your stomach lining and intestine and breed offsprings.

http://news4ktla.com/coca-cola-recalls-dasani-water-clear-parasite-worm-found-bottles-across-u-s/

 

Note: Several weeks ago on FB, there was a post circulating from a lady who bought several bottles of Arrowhead water from a Walmart. She and a friend each drank a bottle, then later she was pouring water from one of the bottles into her dogs bowl and noticed that the water coming out was a rubbery like slush – it reminded me of chemcially nucleated ice Dane Wigington talks about. It didn’t look like or have the consistency of melting ice which forms slush.

Honestly, it looked like big blobs of the parasites without the eyes…There’s no way to know if the two cases are related, the lady who drank the Arrowhead didn’t report any symptoms of illness when she made the video. So they’re most likely unrelated.

Oathkeeper Sheriff Blocks Feds From Raiding Local Farmer


Sheriff Brad Rogers

Indiana – Elkhart County Sheriff Brad Rogers, successfully stood up for his constituents in a showdown, when the Food and Drug Administration sent in some federal officials to pester a raw milk and organic food farmer.

Sheriff Rogers followed up on a complaint from a local farmer, David Hochstetler and discovered that he would use his position to side with them because he saw that there was no justified cause for the obtrusive inspections that have going on since 2011 around twice a month.

They were searching for a reason to shut down Forest Grove Dairy Farm, so Rogers stepped in and blocked it. Then he started speaking out about it.

The big agriculture backed FDA along with the Department of Justice (DOJ) started the harassment approximately four years ago just because the hard-working farmer was producing raw milk and supplying some of the organic food co-ops. Thankfully, the government’s steady war on small farmers was halted in this particular case.  Sheriff Rogers, authored a 600-word break down of the ordeal for the local newspaper in his contribution column called “Ask The Sheriff”.

“Specifically, the FDA was inspecting his farm without a warrant as much as every two weeks. Typical inspections occur annually. The Department of Justice (DOJ) had subpoenaed him for a grand jury in Michigan in which he was to bring his production documents. The Feds wanted to make this farmer an example.”

Rogers continued, “My research concluded that no one was getting sick from this distribution of this raw milk. It appeared to be harassment by the FDA and the DOJ, and making unconstitutional searches, in my opinion. The farmer told me that he no longer wished to cooperate with the inspections of his property.”

Sheriff Rogers wrote to the DOJ and let them know that he would take action if the federal inspectors came without a signed warrant that specified probable cause to give a clear reason why they needed to conduct their invasive searches:
“I understand that you have made recent requests to (the farmer) for documents and to appear before a grand jury, and he has had a number of inspections and attempted inspections on his farm within Elkhart County. This is notice that any further attempts to inspect this farm without a warrant signed by a judge, based on probable cause, will result in federal inspectors’ removal or arrest for trespassing by my officers or I. In addition, if any further action is taken by the federal government on (the farmer), while he is in Elkhart County, I will expect that you or federal authorities contact my office prior to such action. I will expect you to forward this information to your federal associates, including the FDA.”

Soon after his email was sent, the farmer got a certified letter in the mail from the DOJ that notified him that the grand jury subpoena was now cancelled. “Now, over four years later, the FDA inspectors and the DOJ, have not returned to the property since I interposed for the farmer. Some have suggested it was my interposition that caused the feds to stand down. I have no way of knowing this for sure, but the evidence would suggest so,” wrote the sheriff.

Sheriff Brad RogersSheriff Rogers exclaimed “Your local elected officials can stem the tide of federal overreach if they apply just a little backbone in supporting and defending the Constitution. Expect it! Demand it! Some bloggers and natural food writers have hailed me as a hero. I’m no hero. I’m just doing my job.”   He added, “Many of our parents/grandparents drank raw milk and survived. There are risks with raw milk, but careful handling and storage will mitigate the risk. Many people believe that raw milk is healthier to drink than the pasteurized version. There is no law in Indiana that prohibits the distribution of raw milk in this fashion. In short, I don’t believe the government should be our nanny and telling us what we can or cannot drink/eat.”

These key actions performed by Sheriff Rogers are right and this is what the people should expect and receive from their county sheriff’s and other elected officials.

Rogers came out a few months ago with his firm stance that he would ignore any and all gun control executive orders. With his solution to the problem as abolishing gun free zones. He also defended his decision to visit the Bundy Ranch back during the 2014 stand-off with the Bureau of Land Management.

Sheriff’s possess the most power in their home counties and are locally elected officials that can be a thorn in the side for the federal automatons that are hell-bent on the encroachment of Freedom. Blocking the government overreach in this instance can set forth an example for other sheriff’s to rise up and stand strong for the people they serve. The ultimate solution of educating the populous on how to repel the Tyranny can be accelerated with the continued support of these county bosses.

6 Colorado Teenagers File Appeal in Fracking and Climate Lawsuit ~ Our Children’s Trust


From  Our Children’s Trust

Six youth plaintiffs on Monday appealed Denver District Court Judge Eric Elliff’s adverse decision to their fracking and climate change lawsuit. In his decision, Judge Elliff affirmed the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission’s order to deny the fracking petition brought by the young plaintiffs, determining that the commission is required to “strike a balance between the regulation of oil and gas operations and protecting public health, the environment and wildlife resources.”

cofrack750

Contrary to the plain language of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Act, the court said that is appropriate for the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission to “balance” oil and gas development with the need to protect public health, the environment and wildlife. In reaching this conclusion, the court ignored plaintiffs’ arguments that such an interpretation of Colorado’s Oil and Gas Conservation Act would allow for the continued infringement of their constitutional rights, including “the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; of acquiring, possessing and protecting property; and of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness,” rights that oil and gas development are harming. The court also ignored the plethora of evidence before it detailing the serious harms that oil and gas development is causing to Coloradans public’s health and to the environment.

“Our health and safety are on the line,” said Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez, 15-year-old plaintiff and youth director of Earth Guardians.

“For the future of all Coloradans, it was imperative for us to file this appeal. It’s a preposterous idea that the commission need to strike a balance between regulation of oil and gas operations and protecting the health of Coloradans. The commission’s priority should be the health and safety of us, the people. Right now, our government is putting their profits above our futures and that needs to stop.”

The case was brought by six inspiring youth who are all members of the Boulder-based organization Earth Guardians. The youths’ case against the commission arose out of a petition for rulemaking that asked the commission to stop issuing permits that allow oil and gas drilling until it is proven that drilling can be conducted without adversely impacting human health and safety and without harming the environment and wildlife. The commission denied the petition, finding that it did not have the authority to issue the requested rule and that “other commission priorities … must take precedence.” The plaintiffs challenged this decision, arguing that the commission must place human health and safety above the interests of the oil and gas industry in Colorado.

“Without question, this decision places public health at a level that is only as important as corporate dollars,” said Julia Olson, a native Coloradan and executive director and chief legal counsel at Our Children’s Trust.

“The health, safety and welfare of all Coloradans are now subordinate to the interests of fossil fuel industry’s development of oil and gas resources. While no one suggests that public health, safety and welfare should be the sole factors, they should certainly be the primary factors in everything the state does, including natural resource development. This court went so far as to say that there is no legislative intent to make public health the primary factor in defendants’ decisions to issue oil and gas permits.”

The six youth plaintiffs and their attorneys are hopeful that the district court’s decision will be reversed by the Colorado Court of Appeals.

20 Attorneys General Launch Climate Fraud Investigation of Exxon


 

By Lauren McCauley

In a move many are hailing as a “turning point” in the climate fight, 20 state Attorneys General on Tuesday launched an unprecedented, multi-state effort to investigate and prosecute the “high-funded and morally vacant forces” that have stymied attempts to combat global warming—starting with holding ExxonMobil and other industry giants accountable for fraud and suppression of key climate science.

"Everyone is impacted by climate change, which means everyone has a stake in these investigations," said 350.org executive director May Boeve. "A trial of ExxonMobil and the fossil fuel industry would be even bigger than the cases against Big Tobacco." Photo credot: 350.org
“Everyone is impacted by climate change, which means everyone has a stake in these investigations,” said 350.org executive director May Boeve. “A trial of ExxonMobil and the fossil fuel industry would be even bigger than the cases against Big Tobacco.” Photo credot: 350.org

“This is about facts, and science, and transparency,” said Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, who spoke at a press conference alongside New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, former Vice President Al Gore and seven other Attorneys General.

“Fossil fuel companies that deceived investors and consumers about the dangers of climate change should be, must be held accountable,” Healey continued, saying there is a “troubling disconnect between what Exxon knew, what industry folks knew and the company and industry chose to share with investors and the American public.”

The coalition of Attorneys General from 16 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands was convened by Schneiderman, who in November announced a state investigation into Exxon after reporting revealed that the oil giant had for decades known and suppressed evidence about the dangers that fossil fuels posed to the environment and then purposely disseminated false information in order to boost its profits.

California has also launched an investigation and on Tuesday Healey and U.S. Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude Earl Walker confirmed their states have as well. Schneiderman said that additional states were pursuing similar action and that the purpose of the coalition is to work together in this “common interest.”

“The scope of the problem we are facing, the size of the corporate entities and alliances and trade associations [working against science and public interest] is massive and it requires a multi-state effort,” Schneiderman said.

AG Walker said that Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are already “experiencing the effects of global warming,” from coral bleaching and the proliferation of seaweed, to ever-more powerful hurricanes.

“It is troubling that, as the polar caps melt, there are companies that are looking at that as an opportunity to go and drill, to go and get more oil. How selfish can you be?” Walker asked. “Your product is destroying this Earth and you want to do what? Destroy the planet further,” he added, saying they have “documents” showing just that.

“We will not stop until we get to bottom of this and make it clear we have to do something transformational,” he added. “We cannot continue to rely on fossil fuels.”

Environmental groups that have spearheaded the call for accountability and investigations into what Exxon knew heralded the announcements and the new AG climate coalition.

“This creates a huge sense of momentum. Exxon may have been able to brush aside a few isolated inquiries, but with more states jumping on board, these investigations are sure to generate some serious waves,” said May Boeve, executive director of 350.org, which on Tuesday launched the website ExxonKnew.org to share information about the investigations and petition the U.S. Department of Justice and state Attorneys General to “hold Exxon accountable.”

“The Exxon revelations may turn out to be the largest corporate scandal in history,” Boeve continued. “Everyone is impacted by climate change, which means everyone has a stake in these investigations. A trial of ExxonMobil and the fossil fuel industry would be even bigger than the cases against Big Tobacco.”

As Katherine Sawyer, senior international organizer for watchdog group Corporate Accountability International, explained in an emailed statement following the press conference:

“In the ’90s, investigations by attorneys general were the beginning of the end for Big Tobacco as we knew it and ushered in a series of lawsuits that shuttered its front groups, forced the release of internal documents and held it liable to pay the high cost of its impacts on society. Just as a similar coalition did with Big Tobacco, this powerful coalition of state Attorneys General are leading the way in holding Exxon and the rest of the fossil fuel industry accountable for their decades of deception and protecting climate policy from their profit-driven interference.”

“Big Polluters have done everything in their power to deny climate change, it is time for our justice system to take back the climate debate,” declared Annie Leonard, Greenpeace USA executive director, who said the AGs’ announcement was “a clear demonstration of climate leadership.”

The coalition includes Attorneys General from California, Connecticut, District Of Columbia, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, Washington state and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Appearing alongside members of that group, former Vice President Al Gore, whose 2006 documentary film An Inconvenient Truth is credited with spurring public debate about climate change, said, “I really believe that years from now this convening … may well be looked back upon as a major turning point in the effort to hold to account those commercial interests … who have been deceiving the American people about the dangers of climate change.”
