This article from ‘Prevent Disease‘, by  MARCO TORRES, has much to offer. Undoubtedly, it receives criticism from the mainstream medical fraternity, but it is substantially sound in its claims.

Much of the supporting evidence is to be found in the source full article, but the following provides the general picture and reason to read it all. Each item really deserves its own separate post, thinking about that!

Do you ever question what doctors, nutritionists, institutions and even science tells you about your health, food, environment and lifestyle? You should, because we live in an era of deception and duplicity where the most trusted and valued sources of information are hijacked by much bigger interests than you can imagine. The internet is one of the last frontiers for truth, informing and educating billions on why our systems of health, agriculture, medicine and many other areas we depend on…

A new Holocaust is imminent, if one is to believe Israeli MPs, who spent the afternoon berating European officials about the growing antiwar protests across their countries, centered on criticizing the Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip.Officials blamed “one-sided” media reports on the large number of dead civilians in Israel’s attack, and demanded the European Union impose “strict regulations on the format and content” of antiwar demonstrations going forward.

Some of the EU officials present, notably Danish officials, insisted that they had a right to free expression that would be abridged by the proposed “regulations,” but Israeli officials were having none of it, insisting that criticism of Israel was anti-Semitism in and of itself, and that “there is a difference between free speech and incendiary speech.”

The Israeli proposal would see the creation of a Special Commissioner in the European Union that would empowered to “monitor” antiwar protesters and restrict them from portraying Israel an “an aggressor” during its assorted invasions of Palestinian territory.

If my fellow Americans understood the history of Israel and Palestine, their views would change overnight … and they would demand that Israel no longer be given unconditional support and blank checks to do whatever they want:

With Mass Incarceration, U.S. is Guilty of a Slow Motion Genocide | ATV 004
If this were happening anywhere else in the world, Americans would be justifiably horrified:

1 out of every 100 adults are living behind bars in the United States, with 1 in 31 in some sort of correctional control, including prison, jail, parole, and probation.

The United States, with 5% of the world’s population, has 25% of the worlds prison population.

Private prisons are operating around the country at the local and state level, and a majority of them include “occupancy requirements mandating that local or state government keep those facilities between 80 and 100 percent full. In other words, whether crime is rising or falling, the state must keep those beds full.”

Thousands are serving life sentences for non-violent crimes.

The School to Prison Pipeline is still funneling mostly black and brown children into the juvenile and adult criminal legal systems.

Solitary confinement, defined as torture by the UN, is commonly practiced in both Guantanamo Bay prison and in mainland US prisons.

Police can murder suspects, and then claim they shot themselves in the head and get away with it, even if the suspect is handcuffed behind their back.

You get the picture.

According to Carl Dix, the co-founder (along with Cornel West) of The Stop Mass Incarceration Network, all of this and more are tantamount to genocide. As he tells Dennis Trainor, Jr. in the embedded episode of Acronym TV:

“Genocide is not a final act of putting people in gas chambers (…) Genocide is a process. A process by which groups of people are identified, targeted, demonized, separated, and then as this process goes on, the question of mass killings comes up later. That has been going on in this country. Black people in particular have been historically targeted, demonized, segregated (…) the definition of genocide flowing from the United Nations is when a group of people are put (in whole or in part) in circumstances that make it impossible for them to thrive and survive as a people. That is the situation with Mass Incarceration and all of its consequences in this country.”
Joining Carl on the program is Juanita Young. Ms. Young relates her story as the mother of an unarmed young man who was murdered by the NYPD, and how that fuels her life as an anti-police brutality activist.

The two discuss plans for a month of nationwide resistance to Mass incarceration, police terror, repression, and the criminalization of a generation.

The call for an October month of resistance put forth by Dix and Cornel West (and is supported by a growing list of endorsing groups and individuals) states:
“The malignancy of mass incarceration did not arise from a sudden epidemic of crime. Nor did it result from people making poor personal choices. Instead it arose from cold political calculations made in response to the massive and heroic struggle for the rights of Black and other minority peoples that took place in the 1960’s and 70’s, and in response to the enormous economic and social changes brought about by globalized production. This cancer of mass incarceration has been, from the beginning, nothing but a new Jim Crow in place of the old one. Like the old Jim Crow, it drew on, fed off and reinforced the deep-seated roots of the racism that grew up with slavery. Like the old Jim Crow, it has been, from the beginning, unjustifiable, utterly immoral and thoroughly illegitimate…

It is not enough to oppose this in the privacy of your own conscience or the company of like-minded people. It is not enough to curse this out, but then tell yourself nothing can be done. If you live your life under this threat, you MUST act. If you understand how wrong this is and how much it devastates the lives of so many millions, you MUST act.”

An Alternative Future.

From ‘Whiteout Press’, some, what I see as, very encouraging earth-shattering news.

Much has been said of the “New World Order”, the basis of which is explained in the article, and its apparent stranglehold on the rest of the world. It has recently become apparent that China, Russia with open support from Iran, are prepared to stand up to the serious threat of the world being controlled by a World Government that has little empathy for citizens and much self-interest in wealth and control.

Yet, it has not been clear as to how an effective opposition could be successful, though the current attack on the US Dollar provides some optimism. Here, we learn of a much more formidable opposition, with 133 nations prepared to participate and defend their sovereignty and independence from the “NWO”, a new “New World Order”.

Undoubtedly, the will and resources are present, with goodness on their…

DISCUSSED: Abortion, Pope Francis, Patriarchy, Does the choice movement need an “it gets better” campaign to empower women to not hide/ apologize about their abortions?, Roe v. Wade, Clinic defenders, Abortion stories, How the Bible teaches women to abort unwanted pregnancy, Bad Choices, Being a target of a pro-life “wanted” poster, Abortion as a local issue, Single women who love sex and don’t want babies.

Kelly Carlin and Katie Klabusich join Dennis this week on Acronym TV.

Kelly Carlin frames her experience of being a woman in the current cultural and political climate in the following way: “The bottom line is, as a woman, I don’t feel safe in the world. I feel like an object. I feel like I could be raped or beaten at any moment. And I feel like I don’t have real control over my destiny and my future. And I have to feel ashamed of my body and who I am. If I could wake up and know that my culture no longer thought those things about me, the world would be such an incredible place because women could actually feel the power they have to help solve the problems that this planet is facing right now.”

Katie Klabusich relates her harrowing experience as a target of a “Wanted Poster” campaign from the Pro-Life Action League. “They decided for Lent this year to put together an Internet meme asking people to pray for (three people): me, (and also) an abortion doctor, and a pro-choice journalist. They put the three of us, with our names, cities, where we work, etc., (and published) it in the blog post and told people to ‘pray’ for us.” This was a major concern because, as Katie says,” the anti-choice movement has used wanted posters to kill people. It has lead to assassinations.”

The USA and its allies are backing the Islamist forces (ISIS) which are attacking the Iraqi government.

The idea is to lure Iranian forces into Iraq, to support the Iraqi government, and thus start a war between the Sunni ISIS and the Shiah Iranians.

A cunning plan to start another war between Iran and Iraq.With NATO’ ISIS ATTACKING THE IRAQ GOVERNMENT, IRAN has intervened in the conflict.

Two Iranian Guards’ units, dispatched from Iran’s western border provinces on 11 June 2014, have been tasked with protecting Baghdad and the holy Shiite cities of Karbala and Najaf, security sources said.

Iran Deploys Forces to Fight al Qaeda-Inspired Militants in Iraq

The Iraq leader Nouri al-Maliki is a Shia Moslem; Iran is Shia Moslem.

The American backed ISIS, which is trying to capture Baghdad, is Sunni Moslem.

The CIA’s idea behind the original Iran Iraq war (1980-88) was to weaken both Iran and Iraq.
When the USA first promoted the Islamists in Afghanistan, starting around 1979, the idea was to drag in the Russians and weaken their empire.
The current US idea seems to be to drag Iran into a conflict in Iraq.

The US idea will be to thus weaken Iran.And to drag Russia into a conflict in Ukraine.

Despite being billed a “top priority” for American efforts in Afghanistan, a new government watchdog report found that the United States spent more than $3 million obtaining eight patrol boats that were never used.

Authored by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, the report stated the purchases were made back in 2010, but about four years later the boats are still sitting unused in a Virginia warehouse.

What’s more, the report is raising questions about why the boats were needed in the first place. After all, Afghanistan is a landlocked country, with no coastline or prominent waters to speak of.

According to the Washington Post, military officials said the boats were originally intended desired as a way to move government supplies along the Amu Darya River near the border of Uzbekistan, as well as to “deter smuggling and illegal entry into Afghanistan.”

Additionally, the cost of each boat turned out to be about $375,000 – far more than the $50,000 they usually sell for in the US. As noted by Fox News, the SIGAR report also raised concerns over how the boats would be repaired, since the nearest port would have been 1,000 miles away in Pakistan.

Yet despite authorizing the expenditure of millions of dollars, just nine months later US and NATO officials determined the boats were not needed. Since 80 percent of the money was already spent and the boats were nearly completed, inspector general John Sopko found that “it was decided that the contract should be allowed to proceed to completion.”

During his investigation into the matter, Sopko discovered that records related to the purchase and cancellation of the patrol boats are severely lacking, and his questions to the military have not resulted in adequate answers.

“The military has been unable to provide records that would answer the most basic questions surrounding this $3 million purchase,” his office told the Post in a statement.

In the report, a series of letters exchanged between Sopko and the military, the inspector general also highlighted the lack of transparency, noting it hampers the “ability to conduct our congressionally-mandated mission to oversee U.S. reconstruction funds.”

“The list of unanswered questions is particularly troubling given the fact…that this program had been an important national security priority for the Afghan National Security Forces prior to its cancellation,” he added.

Although Army Maj. Gen. Jeffrey N. Colt acknowledged in a letter that it was unlikely “proper procedures” were followed in the run-up to the cancellation of the order, he also denied that any wrongdoing took place. Meanwhile, Pentagon spokesman Marine Corps. Maj. Bradlee Avots downplayed the event.

“The Department of Defense strives to ensure every reconstruction project is executed in a manner that demonstrates responsible stewardship of taxpayers’ dollars,” he said to the Post. “While there have been some instances of underperforming projects, these are vastly outweighed by the positive cumulative impact of the wide array of successful projects.”

Still, the $3 million purchase is just the latest instance of wasteful spending related to Afghanistan. In January, SIGAR discovered that none of the country’s 16 ministries could be trusted to receive and spend aid from the United States. In nearly every department, there was a high risk of the money being stolen or wasted.

Multiple instances of waste were uncovered in 2013 as well. As RT reported previously, SIGAR found the military constructed a $34 million base in southern Afghanistan only to never put it to use. An additional $50 million intended to strengthen local governments, meanwhile, was instead spent on workshops and overhead.

I am comfortable with promoting this article because it makes sense. The medical industry do not make public announcements refuting these allegations with scientific evidence that that they are incorrect. They simply persist in claiming safety, benefit to the majority,  “herd immunity” and are unable to provide evidence to deny the allegations made.

Definitely worthy of a complete read and serious thought.

Medical health authorities, including doctors, nurses, and other members of the allopathic fraternity, employ a number of strategies designed to elicit parental submission to vaccine guidelines. Currently, parents are expected to grant authorities permission to toxify their children’s pure and sacred little bodies with more than 30 blends of rare germs, bacteria, and other foul substances — all before they enter school!

An opportunity to learn and make up your own mind.

Big Agra giants Monsanto, Dow and Syngenta have flatly denied any negative reproductive effects of the best-selling herbicide glyphosate, stating:

“Glyphosate does not cause adverse reproductive effects in adult animals or birth defects in offspring of these adults exposed to glyphosate, even at very high doses.”

However, in a 2011 Earth Open Source report, eight researchers question whether or not the industry along with government agencies including the European Union are obscuring information on glyphosate’s links to birth defects:

The public, in contrast, has been kept in the dark by industry and regulators about the ability of glyphosate and Roundup to cause malformations. In addition, the work of independent scientists who have drawn attention to the herbicide’s teratogenic effects has been ignored, denigrated, or dismissed. These actions on the part of industry…

Lawyers claim the Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey, should not be held liable for sexual abuse allegedly committed by a priest because he wasn’t officially “on duty” when he molested a teenage boy.

Chris Naples claimed Rev. Terence McAlinden, who once headed the diocese’s youth group, sexually abused him during church-sponsored trips to Delaware in the 1980s.

But diocese lawyers told the Delaware Supreme Court that McAlinden was not officially on duty when the abuse took place.

“You can determine a priest is not on duty when he is molesting a child, for example,” the attorney argued. “A priest abusing a child is absolutely contrary to the pursuit of his master’s business, to the work of a diocese.”

That statement left Naples reeling, he told The (Newark) Star-Ledger.

“Any hope I had that the church was concerned about me as a victim or about the conduct of its priests was totally gone,” Naples said. “They were washing their hands of it. I was shattered. I just couldn’t believe that was one of their arguments.”

Delaware courts ruled Naples did not have jurisdiction to sue the diocese in that state because he couldn’t prove the trips were church sanctioned, but he did win a $3 million judgment in that state against McAlinden.

The 42-year-old Naples has filed another suit against the diocese in Mercer County, New Jersey, although he expects he’ll never see a penny from McAlinden, who has few assets.

“This has never been about the money,” Naples said. “It’s about exposing him for the monster that he is, and it’s about transparency in the diocese. They knew about McAlinden. They could have done something about it. And they did what every other diocese did. They kept it hush-hush and paid behind-the-scenes settlements.”
