French Court Rules Against Utility Smart Meters Because They Are Making People Sick

By B.N. Frank

Tens of millions of utility Smart Meters have been installed throughout the U.S and around the world so it’s likely that they are installed on your home and throughout your community whether you know it or not. There are many problems associated with them including adverse health effects and fires.

Plant-based burgers may not be as healthy as you think

The Meatless Farm claims its products are "almost indistinguishable from meat in terms of taste and texture" and are 100 percent plant-based, which is basically the same thing that Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods say about their burgers. “The trick to all of these meatless burgers is they want them to taste like real meat in order to convert traditional meat-eaters. When they do that, they add processed chemicals to them, they add high sodium content to them because if something doesn’t taste salty, it doesn’t taste like real meat.”

This US heartland has been flooded for five months. Does anyone care?

Dating back to late February, about 550,000 acres of land have been underwater in the rural Yazoo backwater area of the lower Mississippi delta. About half of the acreage is farmland, creating devastating effects in a region where agriculture is the lifeblood of the economy. While flooding in the region is common, this year’s floodwater has hung around longer than ever.

Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the Unraveling of US Empire

The results of centuries of U.S. empire, which began with Manifest Destiny that crossed the North American continent and grew into a global empire, are coming home to roost in Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

For far too long, the rules have been written for Puerto Ricans, not by them. The island has been a colony of the US for more than 100 years and was a colony of Spain before that. It is time to decolonize.

Hawaiian Independence Movement Grows

Native Hawaiians and allies are camped at the base of Mauna Kea to protect the summit of the mountain from the construction of a proposed Thirty Meter Telescope, a massive 18-story, five-acre telescope complex being built on sacred land. Mauna Kea, measured from its base, is the tallest mountain in the world and represents the birthplace of Hawaii island and the Hawaiian people. The summit is associated with a number of important gods and goddesses and is the site of numerous burial places and altars.

Nearly 60 percent of astronauts have “space herpes”

Researchers found that seven percent of the astronauts who previously reported herpes infections in the past suffered a new outbreak while in space. Furthermore, 57 percent of the participants displayed much higher levels of the viruses during missions than they did on Earth.

Herpes viruses cause cold sores, glandular fever, and shingles. When their host is healthy, the pathogens enter a dormant state and bide their time. Once the host gets exhausted or stressed, the viruses wake up to take advantage.

The findings raised concerns about the health of the astronauts during extended space voyages, such as the planned mission to Mars in the 2020s. If the human immune system grew so weak during short trips that inactive viruses came out of dormancy, long trips might pose more serious risks.

Many groups are promoting the use of Virtual Reality as a treatment strategy for pain patients.

Transgender Trauma: Parents Ask Surgeon General to Expose Dangers of Puberty Blockers, Gender Surgeries

Parents of children who have endured puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and permanent medical procedures as a part of their new gender identity are asking the United States Surgeon General to increase public awareness of the dangers of such practices.

The Kelsey Coalition, a non-partisan group, has delivered a petition signed online by people across the country to US Surgeon General Jerome Adams.

The petition advises how doctors are "now administering powerful puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones to a growing number of gender non-conforming pre-adolescents. 'Gender-confirming' surgeries — including mastectomies, radical hysterectomies, vaginoplasties, and orchiectomies — are now being performed on teenagers."

The petition also points out how parents are oftentimes being misled by clinicians.

Bad Name” 

A common cockroach species is becoming essentially immune to pesticides, researchers said.

A new study by researchers at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, found evidence that the German cockroach species is becoming harder to kill as the worldwide pest rapidly develops cross-resistance to multiple types of insecticide at one time.

The findings were published in the journal Scientific Reports last month.

“This is a previously unrealized challenge in cockroaches,” the study’s lead author, Michael Scharf, said. “Cockroaches developing resistance to multiple classes of insecticides at once will make controlling these pests almost impossible with chemicals alone.”

The researchers tested three methods of professional-grade insecticides on German cockroaches at multi-unit buildings in Indiana and Illinois over a six-month period in 2016.

Ebola Zone ‘Sharply Widened’ | TX Guv Tamps Down Concerns

An epidemic of Ebola in eastern DR Congo sharply widened on Wednesday, the eve of the first anniversary of the outbreak, with the announcement of a death in a major city and the quarantining of 15 people in a province that had previously escaped the disease.

A total of 1,803 lives have been lost in the second-worst outbreak of Ebola on record, according to figures released Wednesday.

The Democratic Republic of Congo’s pointman on the crisis, Jean-Jacques Muyembe, said a second person had died of Ebola in Goma, a densely-populated city on the border with Rwanda that has transport links to many parts of East Africa.

“A patient who was confirmed with Ebola in Goma has died. Every measure has been taken to block the chain of transmission,” Muyembe told AFP.

Addiction Expert Claims: Giving Your Child A Smartphone Is Like Giving Them A gram Of Cocaine

By Amanda Froelich

The world is changing at a dramatic pace. It’s shifting so fast, in fact, that the childhood you remember is vastly different than the one your own kids will experience. This is largely due to the development and saturation of technology in modern society.

While there are perks to being hyper-connected, allowing children access to their own smartphone could produce detrimental effects long-term. It’s so influential, top addiction therapist Mandy Saligari suggested in 2017 that giving your child a smartphone is like “giving them a gram of cocaine.”...

Merck’s former LEAD Supervisor for Vaccine Safety NEVER vaccinates his own children due to sterility concerns

Science is founded on and thrives from critical thinkers asking tough questions, but that’s the last thing Merck scientists want any vaccine recipients doing. You can’t make this stuff up. Scientist Jorge Araujo says that quality controls and all-important safety practices are simply not there at Merck pharmaceuticals, one of the “Pharma Five” that dominates the vaccine producing industry. This scientist may not work at Merck right now, but when he did, there simply were not any signs of “robust science” to be found, and that’s why he refuses to stick needles full of genetically mutated viruses, foreign animal proteins and mercury into his children’s muscle tissue.

Araujo’s wife is a nurse and she completely agreed that it’s simply not safe. In fact, vaccines are very dangerous and experimental, but still the CDC pushes them all on the country full of naïve “patients for life” with the big slogan LIE that claims they’re all always “safe and effective.”

What is Monsanto doing in Puerto Rico?

As you can imagine, it’s not good and it’s hurting the residents there.

The blades of the windmills revolve over crops of genetically modified plantations of soybean and corn, plantain and farms that have been crushed by the extended use of concrete. The Caribbean Sea appears, with green areas to the left, and to the right an exit leading to an occupied territory: multinational seed corporations, such as Monsanto, control 31% of the land with the greatest potential for agriculture in the municipality of Juana Díaz. It is the transgenic epicenter of Puerto Rico.

From north to south, from east to west, seed corporations already dominate about 9,712 public and private acres in the island. The area controlled by these corporations is equivalent to the area destined in 2016 for the cultivation of plantains, which the territory’s Department of Agriculture identifies as the most important crop in the country, economically speaking.

U.S. NUCLEAR ARMS PLANT FILES REPORTED MISSING

SOURCE: ECOWATCH

The U.S. Department of Justice won't turn over 60 boxes of files about a nuclear arms plant in Colorado because it says it can't find the files. The missing documents were presented to a grand jury during a two-year criminal investigation that looked into environmental crimes committed at Rocky Flats, which produced plutonium triggers for the nation's nuclear arsenal throughout the Cold War, as the Denver Post reported.

The nuclear plant, just outside of Denver, operated from 1952 to 1989 when it shut down amid the grand jury investigation. While running, it had a history of fires, leaks and spills. Files about the plant, however, have remained a state secret since the grand jury investigation concluded in 1992.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Can't find the files", MY ASTROLABE!!!

They have most probably been destroyed, and are a sitting heap of ashes on a landfill somewhere.

BIG PHARMA ADMITS MEASLES OUTBREAK AND SUBSEQUENT MEDIA HYSTERIA MADE THEM MASSIVE PROFITS

OURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Since the beginning of the year, the Free Thought Project has been reporting on the hysteria associated with the measles outbreak and the subsequent loss of liberties and police state crackdown that’s ensued. We’ve seen children banned from public spaces, mandatory vaccinations enforced with police action, and a pro-vaccine push in the mainstream media like we’ve never seen before. In May, the pro-mandatory vaccine push reached a new level, as the Washington Post published an article calling for the arrest of those who choose not to vaccinate. Now we are seeing the result of said hysteria and it comes in the form of massive pharmaceutical industry profits.

On Tuesday, the pharmaceutical giant Merck said consumer demand for its measles vaccine skyrocketed thanks to the “outbreak” which helped boost sales in its second quarter.

Zionist Puppet Trump Gives Israel a Free Hand in Genocide of Palestinian People

With all criticism toward Israel silenced in the West, Israel now enjoys complete impunity to make life a hell on earth for the Palestinians.
The arrival of Donald Trump in the White House two-and-a-half years ago has emboldened Israel as never before, leaving it free to unleash new waves of brutality in the occupied territories.

While engaged in the process of “saving” Israel, Donald Trump is going to destroy the United States.

Israel is a demonic evil entity. It has Amerika by the throat. Israel is in the process of destroying the United States because it is a parasite, a vampire. Trump is their man. Trump’s job is to serve Israel.

All the ‘Q’ talk about Trump playing 4d chess is utter garbage. That is the psyop they are using to fool the goyim into believing that Trump is somehow working for the American voter. He is not, he is working for Israel.

You cannot make Amerika great again by giving Israel everything it wants — and more.

New Vaccine Mandates: Your Choice

By Rosanne Lindsay, Naturopath

American freedom is being tested, once again, as new vaccine mandates are being announced, state by state, spurred on by fear of measles in the headlines.

In a state of amnesia, America has forgotten that measles, like the flu, had historically been considered a harmless, childhood cyclical infection. Natural infection is a right of passage that confers life-long immunity and strengthens the immune system to reduce the chance of cancers later in life. Further, there is a documented negative association between measles infection and Parkinson’s disease...

How Real Mind Control Works

By Brandon Smith

When people are confronted with the idea of “mind control” they often think of something out of television or film media; a lone prisoner tortured, chemically dazed and conditioned into a hollow zombie as his captors squeeze information from him or use him to complete a task he would not normally do or morally accept. And while there is actually some truth to this kind of Hollywood depiction, as is evidenced in the exposure of government programs like MK Ultra, the most insidious forms of mind control are far more subtle.

Governments and the elitists behind them do not necessarily need to physically cage, drug and brutalize people in order to influence how they behave. All they need to do is manage their perceptions, expectation and assumptions. This can be accomplished with large portions of the public, rather than one person at a time...

Could cheap drugs (up to a century old) be the new way to tackle cancer? That’s the intriguing question raised by patients who swear they work - but profit hungry big pharma is ignoring them...

It’s a story unfortunately familiar to far too many patients. But what is unusual is what happened next. As Lisa is a GP, she has a better understanding of the mechanisms of cancer than many people.

She used this to research other options, which she believes, in conjunction with her mainstream treatment, have helped her not only keep the cancer at bay, but even achieve a small amount of tumour shrinkage.

Central to this is metformin, a drug used for almost a century not for cancer, but as a safe and routine treatment for type 2 diabetes.

Brazil’s toxic pesticides ‘affecting people all over the world’ through agricultural exports

Brazil’s embrace of highly toxic pesticides – the government has approved 262 so far this year and loosened regulations on what is considered “extremely toxic” – is affecting people far outside its borders, an expert tells RT.

“EU-banned pesticide[s are] being manufactured in the EU, and then coming back to citizens in the EU, in the food we eat,” environmental journalist and founding member of the Green Economic Institute think tank Oliver Tickell told RT, explaining that as one of the largest soy exporters in the world, Brazil supplies a significant quantity of the feed that cattle and other livestock worldwide consume. European consumers tucking into a juicy steak have no idea that the creature they’re eating might have been nourished on soy sprayed with highly toxic pesticides.

Hurricane Erick churns toward Hawaii with winds of up to 80mph as Tropical Storm Flossie is expected to strengthen to another Pacific hurricane today

As Hurricane Erick gained strength in the eastern Pacific as it churned toward Hawaii, another weather system, tropical storm Flossie brewing farther east is likely to become a hurricane later on Tuesday, forecasters said.

Tropical Storm Erick grew into a hurricane late on Monday in the eastern Pacific, packing maximum sustained winds of 80 mph (130 kph) as it churned more than 1,000 miles (1,610 km) from Hawaii's Big Island.

Erick, the Pacific season's third hurricane, is rated Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale and could reach category 3, with sustained winds of more than 111 mph (178 kph) in the next two days, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

Government By Blackmail: Jeffrey Epstein,Trump's Mentor Roy Cohn and The Dark Secrets of The Reagan Era

July 25th, 2019

By Whitney Webb Whitney Webb
Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire who now sits in jail on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors, has continued to draw media scrutiny in the weeks after his arrest on July 6. Part of the reason for this continued media interest is related to Epstein’s alleged relationship to the intelligence services and new information about the true extent of the sexual blackmail operation Epstein is believed to have run for decades.

As MintPress reported last week, Epstein was able to run this sordid operation for so long precisely because his was only the latest incarnation of a much older, more extensive operation that began in the 1950s and perhaps even earlier.

Study: One Apple Carries Roughly 100 Million Bacteria — Which Is A Good Thing

By John Anderer

How does the old saying go? “100 million bacteria a day will keep the doctor away?” Sounds about right.
