How Long Have Vaccines Been Tainted with Monsanto's Roundup?



Again, the issue at stake here is calling for SAFE vaccines rather than zero vaccines, and to apply only the minimum amount of vaccines deemed necessary. Big pharma, being a business, wants YOU (every member of the population) to take as much medicine as they can manufacture.

It's a Toilet, Not a Trash Can!
Even if they're small, even if the package says "flushable," some everyday items can cause messy and expensive problems for your plumbing and our sewer treatment facilities.
Products that might seem safe to flush down the toilet, such as personal care wipes, dental floss and paper towels, don't dissolve quickly – or at all – in water. If a scrap of undissolved material gets caught on a nick, bend or bump within a pipe, it can trigger a growth of buildup that could cause a sewer backup in your home or neighborhood.
Sewer agencies, environmentalists and consumer advocates are working with manufacturers to correct product labeling. In the meantime, please make sure to dispose of personal care products, cleaning supplies and other household waste properly: in the trash can, in the recycling bin or at your local household hazardous waste disposal site.
Cease the Grease
Fats, cooking oils and grease are not water-soluble. They coat household pipes and public sewer mains, causing nasty clogs. To dispose of household fats, oils and grease, carefully pour them into an empty metal can. Let it cool, then throw it in the trash. For details, download the Boston Water and Sewer Commission's Currents newsletter about Fats Oils and Grease (PDF).
A Healthy Environment Starts at Home - Household Hazardous Waste
Some household items shouldn't be flushed because they do break down in water. Dissolved chemicals can travel through the sewer system and pollute Boston Harbor and the marine environment.
Medications and supplements should not be flushed or disposed of down the drain. They should be wrapped and thrown in the trash, or brought to a local drug take-back site. Visit the US Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administrations' web site for more information.
Unwanted solvents and other chemicals used around the home, like paint, cleaners and nail polish remover, should not be flushed down the toilet or poured down the drain. You should use them up or bring them to your local household hazardous waste disposal site. For more information about disposing of household hazardous waste and ideas for safer alternatives, download "A Healthy Environment Starts at Home (PDF)," our free guide to reducing household hazardous waste products.

Microbeads are found in many household products and their sale will be prohibited after July 1, 2018. In the meantime, please consider discontinuing their purchase and use. (Image courtesy Minnesota Pollution Control Agency)

Our daily routines are causing more than eight trillion plastic microbeads to enter aquatic habitats every day in the U.S. alone, according to a study published in the September 2015 edition of Environmental Science and Technology. According to the study, that’s enough to cover 300 tennis courts daily.
These plastic microbeads, designed to exfoliate, are about the size of a pinhead and can be found in toothpaste, body wash, facial scrubs, and soaps. When used, they go down the drain. Wastewater treatment plants are not designed to treat them, so they end up in our nation’s waterways. Once they are in the water they are eaten by fish and other aquatic organisms. Once ingested, toxins absorbed in the plastic transfers to fish tissue. These pollutants move up the food chain when these organisms are consumed by larger predators, including humans.
In December 2015, President Obama signed into law a bill entitled, “HR 1321, Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015”. The bill prohibits the manufacturing of products containing plastic microbeads after July 1, 2017 and prohibits the sale of these products after July 1, 2018.
In the meantime, please consider disconcontinuing the purchase and use of products containtaining microbeads in your home.

A look back at the first chemical attack in Syria in 2013 and how it compares to the latest attack in 2017.


A look back at the first chemical attack in... by debunkerbuster

I'm personally not absoving any side of anything completely as it pertains to chemical weapons, including the US. We should stay out of this mess.

Use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Civil War has been confirmed by the United Nations. Deadly attacks during the war included the Ghouta attack in the suburbs of Damascus in August 2013 and the Khan al-Assal attack in the suburbs of Aleppo in March 2013. While no party took responsibility for the chemical attacks, the Syrian Ba'athist military was seen as main suspect, due to a large arsenal of such weapons. A U.N. fact-finding mission and a UNHRC Commission of Inquiry have simultaneously investigated the attacks. The U.N. mission found likely use of the nerve agent sarin in the case of Khan al-Asal (19 March 2013), Saraqib (29 April 2013), Ghouta (21 August 2013), Jobar (24 August 2013) and Ashrafiyat Sahnaya (25 August 2013). The UNHRC commission later confirmed the use of sarin in the Khan al-Asal, Saraqib and Ghouta attacks, but did not mention the Jobar and the Ashrafiyat Sahnaya attacks. The UNHRC commission also found that the sarin used in the Khan al-Asal attack bore "the same unique hallmarks" as the sarin used in the Ghouta attack and indicated that the perpetrators likely had access to chemicals from the Syrian Army's stockpile. Those attacks prompted the international community to pressure disarmament of the Syrian Armed Forces from chemical weapons, which was executed during 2014. Despite the disarmament process, dozens of incidents with suspected use of chemical weapons followed throughout Syria, mainly blamed on Syrian Ba'athist forces, as well as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and even on Syrian opposition forces.
In August 2016, a confidential report by the United Nations and the OPCW explicitly blamed the Syrian military of Bashar al-Assad for dropping chemical weapons (chlorine bombs) on the towns of Talmenes in April 2014 and Sarmin in March 2015 and ISIS for using sulfur mustard on the town of Marea in August 2015.[1] Several other attacks have been alleged, reported and/or investigated. In 2017, the 2017 Khan Shaykhun chemical attack drew international attention and provoked the first U.S. military action against the Syrian government.

'Rebels, Not Assad, Benefit from Idlib Chemical Weapons Attack'

The Syrian government was quickly blamed by the West after the opposition-controlled Idlib region saw a chemical attack that reportedly killed dozens of civilians. However, a UK security analyst told RT the rebels were the only force that benefited from the incident.



There seems two possibilities, that either the chemical incident occurred because Syrian jets bombed a rebel ammunition depot containing toxic munitions or the rebels staged the entire incident.

There is no motive for Assad to use chemical weapons since the Government side is winning and to do so would invite outside intervention.

It's a voyage of exploration like no other - to Titan, Saturn's largest moon and thought to resemble our own early Earth. For a small team of British scientists this would be the culmination of a lifetime's endeavour - the flight alone, some 2 billion miles, would take a full seven years. This is the story of the space probe they built, the sacrifices they made and their hopes for the landing. Would their ambitions survive the descent into the unknown on Titan's surface?

New Michael Brown Footage and the Crazy Story Behind it Leaking in a Fake News Documentary

New footage has been released of Michael Brown which attempts to put in context the now-infamous strong-armed robbery footage that had been previously released during the investigation of his “unarmed’ death at the hands of Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. It was released during South By Southwest (#SXSW) in Austin, Texas in a documentary film entitled “Stranger Fruit.” The film’s producer, Jason Pollock, claims he was in St. Louis (close to Ferguson) for two years putting the documentary together. The new footage was patched together in a way that made it appear as if Brown actually exchanged marijuana for the items he took from the store rather than stealing them. The intention of the film is to essentially vindicate those that say Michael Brown did not rob the store, therefore should not have been approached by Darren Wilson on that fateful day in 2014.

A big problem with Jason Pollock’s “film” is that it is obviously patched together and does not play the unreleased surveillance footage in full. Because if it did show all of the unreleased footage, then a different story would be painted. Not only was the Pollock’s footage deceptively edited, it also contained his narration of the story to support the deceptive editing. 

The convenience store in question’s lawyer delivered a press conference on Tuesday March 14th in which he played all of the previously unreleased footage. It painted an entirely different story. Rather than Michael Brown paying for the merchandise with weed and leaving it behind the counter to pick up later, he attempts to pay for the merchandise with weed but the people behind the counter refuse. He tries to walk off with the goods but is stopped by the people in the store. He comes back to the counter and gives them the bag, they re-stock it, and that’s it. Michael Brown comes back the next morning and tries to do the same thing and this time, he simply walks off with the product, therefore he robs the store. And from there, Darren Wilson encountered him and the rest is history. 

Long story short, Jason Pollock is simply trying to cash in on black people’s misery. On the misery of Michael Brown’s family. Apparently he doesn’t care if innocent people get hurt as a result. As long as he’s able to get his 15 minutes of fame. There have already been shootings at “demonstrations” in Ferguson in light of this “new” video that he most likely obtained through illegal methods. The purpose of the video I created is to present actual, real information to counteract Jason Pollock’s false and self-serving information.

Demand FULL Repeal of ObamaCare Now - Stop Ryancare


Republicans have promised to repeal ObamaCare for years. Instead of repealing and replacing ObamaCare with a bold conservative plan, these weak kneed Republicans have opted for RINOcare. This is unacceptable.
Paul Ryan’s watered down ObamaCare plan just isn’t going to work. That’s why we’ve got to force these spineless politicians to support Senator Rand Paul and Rep. Mark Sanford’s ObamaCare repeal bill, HR 1072 and S 222.
Help them get it passed by contacting your Members of Congress right now. Tell them to oppose RyanCare. Tell them to support the ObamaCare Replacement Act (HR 1072 & S 222)today.

WIKILEAKS’ VAULT 7 RELEASE CONFIRMS INFOWARS’ DECADES OF RESEARCH

TVs, phones and smart devices dangerously vulnerable to government compromise


The latest WikiLeaks’ release of CIA hacking tools confirms Infowars’ decades of reporting into the government’s ability to hack devices previously assumed to be safe.
The “Vault 7” data dump, which begins with the “Year Zero” release of 8,761 documents, concerns highly-sensitive files from within the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley.
“Recently, the CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized ‘zero day’ exploits, malware remote control systems and associated documentation,” a WikiLeaks’ press release states. “This extraordinary collection, which amounts to more than several hundred million lines of code, gives its possessor the entire hacking capacity of the CIA.”
The targets include electronic devices that for years Infowars has warned are vulnerable to compromise.
Alex Jones Warns Everything In Your Home Is Designed To Spy On You
For example, one such attack “infests smart TVs” and transforms them into “covert microphones.”
Americans Embrace Smart Gadgets Used to Spy on Them
“After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a ‘Fake-Off’ mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on,” WikiLeaks writes. “In ‘Fake-Off’ mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server.”
Alex Jones: Xbox Kinect Is Spying On You
The data dump also highlights how Microsoft Windows has long been vulnerable to government intrusion.
“The CIA also runs a very substantial effort to infect and control Microsoft Windows users with its malware,” the press release states. “This includes multiple local and remote weaponized “zero days”, air gap jumping viruses such as “Hammer Drill” which infects software distributed on CD/DVDs, infectors for removable media such as USBs, systems to hide data in images or in covert disk areas ( “Brutal Kangaroo”) and to keep its malware infestations going.”

Mark Levin Issues Open Letter To CNN's Brian Stetler: "You Are Thoroughly Dishonest"

Mar 6, 2017 1:01 PM

zerohedge.com


Mark Levin, the man who started the ball rolling on 'Obamagate' by connecting the dots across various President Obama actions over the last year, has issued an open letter to CNN's Brian Stetler, exclaiming "you are thoroughly dishonest."
In response to this...
Levin writes... "You Are Thoroughly Dishonest"
Did you listen to my show on Thursday, before President Trump tweeted? Did you watch my appearance on Fox and Friends Sunday morning? I know you are ticked I did not appear on your show, despite your numerous requests. Your ad hominem attacks about "right wing" radio host and conspiracy theory stuff ... incredible.

I simply put together the stories that YOUR profession reported, on the public record. Do you deny there were two FISA applications? Do you deny the first was turned down? Do you deny the second was approved? It's called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. It is about surveillance. The fact that we cannot discern all the details because of the secrecy, except for what the media have revealed and selective leaks by the government, should cause you to want to know more, not to trash those who point it out.

And yes, we can make several logical implications based on events and experience. A FISA application is a big deal. One, or two in this case, that involve campaign surrogates, or a server or computer related to a candidate or campaign, etc., is a big deal. President Obama's statement is not a definitive statement of anything, other than he, personally, did not order a wiretap, which I never claimed. But that does not mean he was unaware of surveillance activity by several of his departments, even through routine reports to the president, such as the Daily Intel Briefing or information conveyed to him or his staff via the Justice Department re the FBI counter-intelligence activities. As for Clapper, despite his past dissembling before Congress, he may not have been aware of what was taking place since the FBI counter-intel operation reportedly sought the warrant. The Daily Intel Briefing might provide useful information in that regard as well.

Of course, the release of the FISA applications would also shed a lot of light on events, assuming YOU believe reports that they were filed.

Furthermore, Clapper has said, as recently as yesterday, that no connections between the Russians and the Trump campaign have been found. I am extremely critical of Russia, Putin, and the efforts to influence our election, although I do not believe they succeeded. That said, how would Clapper know of no connections if he, as former Director of National Intelligence, didn't look? On what is that based?

Your lack of curiosity and dishonesty about such matters and in dealing with me demean you and your profession. You are free to circulate this communication to whomever you wish, as I am making it public.
Stetler was quick to tweet a reply...

Levin emailed me, "Do you deny there were two FISA applications?" I replied: "I don't know. You don't know. The reporting is very murky." https://twitter.com/marklevinshow/status/838804965502119936 

So, as a reminder of just what the so-called 'Obamagate' timeline looks like - and where the DoJ was allegedly involved - here is Levin's story so far...
1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking.

3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians.

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington.

6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked.

7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.

8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama’s newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them. Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation.

9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites “four current and former American officials” in reporting that the Trump campaign had “repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is “no evidence” of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks.

10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event and once at a meeting in Sessions’s Senate office. The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions’s testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the “dossier” of ongoing contacts. The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House “rushed to preserve” intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By “preserve” it really means “disseminate”: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies “to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators” and perhaps the media as well.
