The only protection the Constitution has from government corruption or perversion, is the people demanding that the government adhere to the principles of the constitution or face the consequences of armed revolution." -- Ron Ewart

Dumbed-Down America, Propaganda and Weaponized Social Media with Brandon Turbeville

After finding out that our world has been under the influence of propaganda since the beginning of written history, it only makes sense that our society is uninformed and doesn’t care about what is happening in their world. According to Brandon Turbeville that is exactly what we are up against. He references a variety of scenarios throughout world history, going all the way back to Plato, where so-called leaders wanted to control what people either read or listened-to; be it music or news or stories. I sat with Brandon from BrandonTurbeville.com and UCY.tv to find out a little more about what is actually happening with one of the more disturbing developments to surface over the past decade.

The Next War In The Middle East Has Begun And Israel Vows ‘To Act Powerfully On All Fronts’

Israel and Hezbollah are at war. On top of everything else that is going on in the world, now we have a new war in the Middle East, and nobody is quite certain what is going to happen next. Israel has been preparing for this moment for more than 8 years. So has Hezbollah. According to some reports, Hezbollah has amassed an arsenal of 50,000 rockets since the end of the Hezbollah-Israel war in 2006. If all-out warfare does erupt, we could potentially see tens of thousands of missiles rain down into an area not too much larger than the state of New Jersey. And of course the Israeli military is also much more sophisticated and much more powerful than it was back in 2006. If cooler heads do not prevail, we could be on the verge of witnessing a very bloody war. But right now nobody seems to be in the mood to back down.

ISIL Pakistani operative admits to getting funding through US

The ISIL operative, identified as Yousaf al-Salafi, told Pakistan’s law enforcement agencies that he received funding through the US, the Express Tribune reported on Wednesday.

Salafi was taken into custody in December 2014, according to the paper, although other reports said he was arrested on January 22.

“During investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organization in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” a source close to the investigations made the announcement.

The operative also admitted to receiving $600 for each person he managed to recruit and send to war-torn Syria.

Water Is Black and Stinks In Southern California Community

For months now families are complaining about black and smelly water pouring from their faucets, toilets, and showers in a Southern California community just south of Los Angeles.

“We don’t want to drink our water, because our water is black,” said Emy Sebastian, a citizen of Gardena California. “My daughter says, ‘Mommy the water is black and it stinks. Why does the water stink?’ She doesn’t want to wash her clothes.”

The phenomenon has been going on too long for residents and they don’t feel that enough is being done to correct the situation. Diane Morita, disgusted by the smell, told NBC4 Southern California, that the water “has an odor of rotten eggs or sewer smell. I’m concerned because it’s getting worse, if it’s even safe.”

Islamic State operative confesses to receiving funding through US

A man believed to be a Pakistani commander of Islamic State or Daish, Yousaf al Salafi, has confessed to law enforcement agencies in Pakistan to getting funds via the United States, according to a leading Pakistani newspaper siting its sources.

Al Salafi and two companions were arrested in Lahore, Pakistan on January 22, according to AFP.

“During investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organization in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” a source close to the investigations revealed toUrdu-language Daily Express on condition of anonymity, according to its sister English newspaper The Express Tribune. The newspaper also claimed that Al Salafi was in fact arrested last year sometime in December.

D.C. Whispers: Bill Clinton Literally Hangs Up On Obama

Rumors are circulating of an ever widening rift between the Clinton and Obama camps, most recently worsened by the president’s State of the Union address last week. Clinton operatives repeatedly asked to be allowed input into the SOTU messaging in the weeks leading up to the address. These requests were ignored – entirely, by the Obama White House. Now with dissatisfaction regarding the general tone and content of Barack Obama’s SOTU, the Clinton Machine is said to be preparing a “talk right over them” offensive, which will further minimize the importance and influence of the now fading Obama presidency as the Clintons prepare to launch their 2016 campaign in earnest later this spring.

The saddest thing in the world is not poverty; it's loss of dignity

In a much-awaited report released at the end of last year, UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon set out his vision for after the millennium development goals expire this year. At its heart, and in its title, is the word “dignity”.

It is not uncommon for “dignity” to be rolled out in the opening salvo of UN documents, but it is a concept seldom contemplated in depth. In this report, it is used as a title to gather the goals aimed at tackling poverty and inequality under one more manageable theme – those at the bottom of the economic ladder lack dignity, and it is the job of the rest of the world to help give it to them.

But that is actually a very limited interpretation of a word that, if understood properly, could mean fundamental changes to our ways of working, and the overall story we are trying to tell. The thing about dignity, and the reason it is a transformational concept, is that it knows no social, economic, gender or ethnic barriers.

The Canadian court case the mainstream media will not cover

The Bank of Canada, unlike the Federal Reserve in the U.S., is wholly owned by the people of Canada. It was nationalized in 1938 and was used very successfully to fund infrastructure, social programs, education, etc, for the benefit of all Canadians. It was used to bring us out of the depression, funded WWII, to build highways such as the McDonald-Cartier freeway, public transportation systems, subway lines, airports, the St. Lawrence Seaway, our universal healthcare system and our Canada Pension Plan.

Unfortunately, since Canada adopted economist Milton Friedman’s theory of monetarism in 1974 this has not been the case and one can track the progression of the dismantling of Canada since then.

It should come as no surprise to patriots that Barack Hussein Obama is a deceiver. A duplicitous and organized mastermind, Obama has done nothing short of light the fuses of many bombs that have exploded since he took office in ’08.

A recent report showed that under both Obama and Hillary Clinton, the U.S. government switched sides and went from opposing Al-Qaeda to supporting them. The “reason” is because they wanted Al-Qaeda to help them depose of then Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi.

New bill proposes a ban on body armor

A new bill has been introduced to the House which could make civilian ownership of body armor illegal.

The bill, called the Responsible Body Armor Possession Act, would strip the right of civilians to purchase or own body armor. The bill reads, “It shall be unlawful for a person to purchase, own or possess enhanced body armor.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States Supreme Court ruled in United States vs Miller that the Second Amendment reserves to the American people the same arms as used by the military. That has to include defensive arms, i.e. body armor.

This law supposedly targets Type III body armor, but there is no clear definition of what that really means, and most body armor is not labeled as to type. Enforcement of the law becomes dependent on the mood of the arresting officer. Also, for those who already own body armor (I have some with "PRESS" on it) there should be a grandfather clause, but this bill does not include that, making such a ban an ex post facto law, which is prohibited by the Constitution.

FLASHBACK 2008 - Bush Signs Bill To Take All Newborns' DNA

President Bush last week signed into law a bill which will see the federal government begin to screen the DNA of all newborn babies in the U.S. within six months, a move critics have described as the first step towards the establishment of a national DNA database.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even with all the computers the government can buy with your money, the reality is that they do not save all three billion pieces of your DNA. DNA taken from a person is distilled down to a much simpler form, using 13 "standard" STR loci selected by the FBI for CODIS, which is the National DNA database. This severe reduction leads to individuals having matching DNA profiles in the database! For a full and complete profile, each American is estimated to match 20 other Americans. For partial, or incomplete profiles, which are the norm for degraded DNA collected at a crime scene, the number of innocent matches jumps into the 100s! And if the crime scene DNA is actually a mixture of multiple individuals, the probability of a false conviction becomes large enough to be of concern.

But the propaganda is that DNA is infallible, and while that may be true for proving that a suspect was not at the scene of a crime, it is far from true for DNA results indicating guilt. This is over and above the well-documented history of the FBI crime lab falsifying their lab results.

Waging A Phony War on Terror. “Terrorists R US” Defines U.S. Foreign Policy

Waging it isn’t new. Enemies are needed. When none exist they’re invented.

Reagan denounced the “evil scourge of terrorism.” Specifically state-sponsored international terrorism. The “plague of the modern age,” he said.

His Secretary of State George Schultz called it “modern barbarism. (A) form of political violence. (A) threat to Western civilization. (A) menace to Western moral values.”

GW Bush declared war on terrorism. To “rid the world of evildoers. (N)ot let evil stand.”

Orwell said political rhetoric defends the indefensible. So-called wars on terrorism are wars of terrorism. State-sponsored. Against designated individuals, groups or nations.

The late Howard Zinn asked “(h)ow can you make war on terrorism if war is terrorism.” Governments are the greatest terrorist threats.

Senate Dems Won’t Back Iran Sanctions for At Least Two Months

Several key Democratic Senators, including Sen. Robert Menendez (D – NJ), have announced they will withhold support for any new Iran sanctions until at least March 24, giving negotiations a chance to continue at least until then.

The March 24 date was picked as the informal deadline for a framework agreement by the P5+1 on negotiations with Iran. The lack of Democratic support essentially makes it impossible that the Senate can override a threatened presidential veto until then.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This delay has absolutely NOTHING to do with the P5+1 negotiations, and EVERYTHING to do with Netanyahu's address to a joint Congressional session in March, right before he addresses AIPAC, where he will do everything in his power to prevent the P5+1 negotiations from succeeding, as will AIPAC

Netanyahu and AIPAC want negotiations to fail; and for the US to attack and "neutralize" its alleged "existential threat" in the region, Iran, just as it did with Iraq; and we can all see, looking through the lens of hindsight, JUST HOW BRILLIANTLY THAT worked out for the US.

The delay is engineered for both Israel and AIPAC to put maximum pressure on Congress to move forward with more sanctions, and cause Iran to walk away from the negotiating table.

Please remember: your alleged Congressional representatives believe that they are infinitely more beholden to Netanyahu and AIPAC than he or she is to the people who actually elected them.

And sometimes, AIPAC can make, or break, a congressional representative; AIPAC and Netanyahu are counting on this, as they apply "leverage" toward more sanctions, and away from negotiations, in the form of a poisonous cocktail of threats, innuendo, and bribes.

In fact, right now, voters who are more than a little upset at this Israeli-sponsored agency's power over Congress (and remember; they do not have to register as a "Foreign Government Agency"), should begin a little social media blitz of their own, something like #Congress, don't drink Israel's Koolade on more Iran Sanctions!!!

Sanctions are almost, invariably, a prelude to war; and Russia and Iran have just inked a mutual military accord. War with Iran will most likely mean war with Russia, and possibly, China.

TSA Plans to Remove Social Media Screening From Airport Security Proposal

The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that it was going to remove social media and purchase history screening from an updated amendment to the proposal concerning the security control at airports.

MOSCOW, January 27 (Sputnik), Anastasia Levchenko — The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) told Sputnik on Tuesday that it plans to remove social media and purchase history screening from its proposal concerning the security control at airports.

"The line on social media and purchase history was inadvertently included in this request for proposal (RFP), and will be removed in an updated amendment to the solicitation. All proposals will be evaluated for privacy and civil liberties risks," a TSA press officer said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see if the final wording includes - or does not include - this language about social media posts, and purchasing activity.

I have made no bones about what I think of the TSA (tourist suppression agency) here on this blog.

And for all the crotch groping and downright thievery from passengers, to date, this group of individuals has not caught one single baddie, determined to do us harm.

The agency exists NOT to protect Americans, but to badger the American people into unthinking acceptance of governmental authority.

And note just how quickly the American character has morphed from "the land of the free...and the home of the brave" to "the land of the cowed...and the home of the surveilled."

“In this context, it is underlined that Greece does not consent to this statement,” Tsipras added.

He voiced his “discontent” in a phone call to EU foreign relations chief Federica Mogherini.

U.S. Signs $2 Billion Loan Agreement With Ukraine, Offers To Increase Pressure On Russia

The United States on Wednesday signed an agreement providing war-torn Ukraine with $2 billion in loan guarantees to help it with "near-term social spending" in 2015 and said it was prepared to step up sanctions against Russia if necessary.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This call for further sanctions against Russia is an absolute, complete abysmal joke, courtesy of an Administration pathologically incapable of thinking a thought through from inception to logical conclusion.

What these sanctions have done is pushed Russia more firmly into the arms of China and other countries, economically, militarily, and geopolitically.

The dollar has been dumped, in favor of trade in national Chinese and Russian currencies between Russia and China; Iran just dumped the dollar yesterday in favor of the renimbi; and Australia and New Zealand have dumped the dollar and are now exchanging their currency for that of China.

And BTW, did anyone at the White House happen to get the memo that Russia and Turkey are developing oil pipelines directly through Gazprom?!?

And the US government declares that Russia is "isolated" by these economic sanctions?!? ISOLATED, MY ASTROLABE!!!!

Two years ago, I sat in the hushed fortress of the Bank of England, listening to one of its secretive boffins, a languid fellow named Paul Fisher, explain the creation and meaning of money.

This note is worth 10 pounds, he said, because you and I and all the people walking around on the streets out there believe it's worth 10 pounds.

That's it. That's the only reason it has any value beyond the intrinsic value of the paper and ink itself. It's all about trust and belief.

A short memo to Victoria Nuland: forgive me, but did I blink and miss the fact that Ukraine had actually become a NATO member?!?I do not believe that has yet actually happened; please forgive me if I am wrong (which I am most assuredly NOT).

And as reported at yahoonews.com two days ago:

NATO has made clear it has no plans to intervene militarily in Ukraine, which is not a NATO member, but it has stepped up cooperation with Kiev, including help with modernizing its armed forces. Diplomats said Ukraine was mainly looking for political support from NATO at the meeting rather than any concrete aid.

I am so terribly sorry, Ms. Nuland, that you did not get the memo.

But if I, as an ordinary American citizen, know this, why, please, is it that you do not?!?

Russia, Turkey announce new gas route with hub in Greece borders

The first gas pipe with a capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters will be operational by December 2016.

Six hundred and sixty kilometers of the new Turkish Stream pipeline will go through the old South Stream corridor and a further 250 kilometers will head in the direction of the European part of Turkey.

The four threads which make up the pipeline will have a capacity of 63 billion cubic meters, Gazprom said in a statement following Tuesday’s meeting between CEO Aleksey Miller and the Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yildiz.

The company will apply to carry out design and exploration work in Turkish territorial waters on Wednesday, January 28.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So much for Russia being "economically isolated" by sanctions!!

And after this weekends elections in Greece, the country's ruling majority must be feeling pretty chipper at the speed with which this deal unfolded, because the economic implications of this deal will be terrific for the new Greek government.

AU, China agree big infrastructure deal

Addis Ababa - China and the African Union agreed on Tuesday an ambitious plan to develop road, rail and air transport routes to link capitals across the continent.

African Union chief Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma praised the proposal at "the most substantive project the AU has ever signed with a partner", although the ambitious project that includes highways and high speed railways is at present just a commitment to develop the infrastructure, and contains few details.

The memorandum of understanding was signed at AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, ahead of a summit meeting of the leaders of the 54-nation pan-African bloc on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF fully implemented, this agreement could mean substantial economic growth for Africa, and a real coup for Chinese business entities.

And THAT is what they are most afraid of, which is why we get all this fanning of racial tension by the government across the nation.

The FBI’s plan to collect everyone’s DNA just got a huge boost from Congress

In 2011, 1 in 25 Americans was arrested. In a few years, if the FBI has its way, the federal government will possess the DNA of all of those people and more. Under the radar of most lawmakers and journalists, the Bureau—with private industry and congress’ help—is pushing the most massive expansion of biometric state surveillance since the invention of the fingerprint.

Late last year, the FBI cut the ribbon on its one billion dollar biometrics database, called Next Generation Identification. Since NGI’s official launch, state and local law enforcement officials have been encouraged to submit face prints, fingerprints, retina scans, photos of tattoos and scars, and DNA collected from people nationwide to the FBI’s central database. Those state and local officials can also search against the FBI’s biometrics store, if they want to identify someone. With NGI in full operation, the scary future of Minority Report infamy takes a giant leap forward into the world of non-fiction.

Greece’s new dream team vows to defy foreign creditors

In a taste of what lies ahead, Yanis Varoufakis, the flamboyant new finance minister, said on his way to the government’s swearing-in ceremony that negotiations would not continue with the hated troika of officials representing foreign lenders.

“They have already begun but not with the troika,” said Varoufakis, an economist who has disseminated his anti-orthodox views through blogs and tweets almost daily since the debt crisis exploded in Athens in late 2009 – something he promised on Tuesday to continue to do. “The time to put up or shut up has, I have been told, arrived,” he wrote on his blog. “My plan is to defy such advice.”

Why A Fake Article Titled "Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs?" Was Accepted By 17 Medical Journals

As a medical researcher at Harvard, Mark Shrime gets a very special kind of spam in his inbox: every day, he receives at least one request from an open-access medical journal promising to publish his research if he would only pay $500.

"You block one of them with your spam filter and immediately another one pops up," Shrime, an MD who is pursuing a PhD in health policy, tells me.

These emails are annoying, for sure, but Shrime was worried that there might be bigger issues at stake: What exactly are these journals publishing and who is taking these journals to be credible sources of medical information?

Shrime decided to see how easy it would be to publish an article. So he made one up. Like, he literally made one up.

A message from Gene Roddenberry to the world

But once we got on the air, and within the limits of those accident ratio limits, we did not accept the myth that the television audience has an infantile mind. We had an idea, and we had a premise, and we still believe that.

As a matter of fact we decided to risk the whole show on that premise.

We believed that the often ridiculed mass audience is sick of this world's petty nationalism and all it's old ways and old hatreds, and that people are not only willing but anxious to think beyond most petty beliefs that have for so long kept mankind divided.

Ukraine’s Government Is Losing Its War. Here Is Why:

On January 27th, Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense headlined “Militants Continue to Suffer Losses,” and reported that four helicopters, and other weapons of the “militants,” were destroyed in battle, but no evidence was given to support the assertion.

Just two days prior, the (also pro-Government) Kiev Post had, in fact, bannered “Ukraine Hides Devastating Losses as Russia-Backed Fighters Surge Forward,” and reported “Ukraine’s worst-kept secret — that the Ukrainian army is drastically understating its casualties.” After detailing, there, what seems to be outrageous unconcern by the Government, for the welfare of troops it’s sending into battle (even by jamming battlefield-injured soldiers into regular civilian hospitals, which aren’t equipped to handle their injuries), this report ends with a doctor saying, “It’s bad everywhere. Yes, the soldiers are still standing at their positions ready to fight. But we don’t see any help coming for them.”

Jewish sex abuse victims pressured not to assist police, secret tapes and emails reveal

Members of Australia's Orthodox Jewish community who assist police investigating alleged child sexual abuse have been pressured to stay silent, secret tape recordings and emails obtained by Fairfax Media reveal.

The details of the pressure being exerted on victims have emerged as the Royal Commission into child sex abuse prepares to hold public hearings next week to examine the responses of Melbourne and Sydney's yeshivah centres to alleged offences dating back to the 1980s.

In one secret, legally recorded 2011 telephone conversation, prominent Melbourne criminal lawyer Alex Lewenberg tells a victim of St Kilda Yeshivah centre sex offender David Cyprys he should not have co-operated with police.

Obama allegedly deploys 'hit team' to Israel to defeat Netanyahu in election

While still traveling overseas to India and Saudi Arabia, President Barack Obama allegedly is seeking revenge on a man he treats more as his nemesis rather than his "closest ally" in the Middle East -- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama and his White House are steaming over the invitation to speak directly to House of Representatives which was extended to the Israeli leader by Speaker of the House John Boehner, no fan of President Obama. But according to the Israeli media on Tuesday, an Obama friend and political ally was dispatched to Israel to help Netanyahu's opposition defeat him in the upcoming Israeli elections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu can hardly complain without the issue of AIPAC's tinkering with the US Government being dragged into the public spotlight!

Americans' satisfaction with the federal government is at an all-time low

If you have to deal with the federal government - be it the seemingly innocuous Social Security Administration or the eternally-despised Treasury Department, home to the IRS - prepare to be even more annoyed than in the past.

According to a report released Tuesday by the American Customer Satisfaction Index, our satisfaction with the federal government has hit an all-time low (at least since the company began collecting data for this index in 2007). The federal government now scores a 64.4 out of 100 in terms of satisfaction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously doubt it is even that high!

Independents now outnumber Republicans, Democrats; Americans awaken to the two-party system scam

For years, they have been sought after by both major parties as the one political demographic that could swing national elections in their favor, and going forward into 2016 and beyond, voters who identify themselves as neither Republican nor Democrat, but as "independent," will become even more important.

That's because the number of independents has grown dramatically in recent years -- so much so that now they outnumber voters who describe themselves as belonging to one of the two primary parties. It's a sign, say political scientists, that more voters are becoming frustrated with a "two-party system" in which they see little difference between choices.

Missing flight MH370: Malaysia to release report one day before anniversary of jet's disappearance

Malaysia will release an interim report on its investigation into flight MH370 on March 7, a day before the first anniversary of the jet's mysterious disappearance, an official says.

However, deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi declined to comment on whether the report would contain any revelations on the fate of the Malaysia Airlines jet.

"It is a report by the investigation team. It will be a lengthy report of a few hundred pages," he said.

The report is being compiled and released by the Department of Civil Aviation and is required by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) one year after air accidents, he said.

MH370 vanished on March 8 last year with 239 passengers and crew aboard en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in what remains one of history's great aviation mysteries.

A whole branch of science turns out to be fake

An open secret has been slowly bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of “research.”

Iran warns US of 'consequences' for Israeli attack

Iran has told the United States that Israel should expect consequences for an attack on the Syrian-controlled Golan Heights that killed an Iranian general, a senior official said Tuesday.

Revolutionary Guards General Mohammad Ali Allahdadi died alongside six fighters from Lebanon's Hezbollah group in the Jan. 18 attack on forces supporting President Bashar Assad in Syria's civil war.

Israel has not officially acknowledged carrying out the attack, but was already warned last week of an eventual response.

Gaza war ‘unlawful’: Israeli rights group blames IDF for deliberately targeting residential areas

An Israeli human rights group has accused the IDF of war crimes during last year’s Gaza invasion by launching airstrikes that intentionally targeted residential areas, killing women and children, while claiming that Hamas was hiding behind civilians.

As prosecutors at the International Criminal Court in The Hague are conducting a preliminary inquiry into possible war crimes committed by Israel in the Palestinian territories, the 49-page report by B'Tselem human rights group claims the allegations are true.

CIA’s Failed Syria Rebel Arming Program in Tatters

There’ve been stories going around for awhile about how poorly the CIA program to smuggle arms in to various Syrian rebel factions is going, but the Wall Street Journal is offering some of the most stark details of a failed program, which failed to get those so-called moderate rebels any real gains, and indeed has seen a large number of them abandoning the battlefield, or joining ISIS and other Islamist groups outright.

Is John Boehner a Traitor?

So, why is Boehner's invitation to Netanyahu such a big deal?

First off, it's a huge violation of protocol and massively disrespectful to President Obama and the authority of the executive branch.

It is completely unprecedented for the Speaker of the House, or any member of Congress, to invite a foreign leader to come to the US and speak to Congress without getting authorization and/or cooperation from the White House.

As Guy Ziv, a professor at American University who has studied US-Israeli relations told TPM, "It's unprecedented. It's hitting below the belt. It's taking partisanship to a whole new level."

By inviting Netanyahu to speak to Congress without the authority of the executive branch, Speaker Boehner is badly blurring the lines of national sovereignty, and again massively disrespecting typical protocol.

The flu shot is a fraud. But it's a fraud that's so deeply embedded in the delusional pro-vaccine culture of the pharma-controlled medical industry that even well-meaning doctors and pharmacists (who are otherwise very intelligent) fail to realize flu shots don't work. In fact, flu shot vaccine inserts openly admit there is no scientific evidence demonstrating flu shots work. See the vaccine insert photos below for proof.

Vaccines cause sudden death, proves document hidden by Big Pharma for two years

An Italian court has unearthed a formerly classified document that proves vaccines cause death, and that vaccine companies don't want you to know this. As published on the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) website, a 1,271-page report by British drug firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) reveals that certain combination vaccines administered to children are known to cause sudden death, but the company chose to obscure and conceal this in official safety reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another aspect of this scandal is that babies who are harmed by vaccines are claimed to suffer from "shaken baby syndrome" and parents have been sent to prison to cover up vaccine damage.
