The city has now opened the first of three giant tents meant to contain the outbreak of the deadly virus.

The first of three industrial-sized tents to house the homeless as part of the city’s efforts to contain a hepatitis A outbreak.

In 2011, Consumers Digest predicted that “Smart” Meters “represents little more than a boondoggle that is being foisted on consumers by the politically influential companies”:   “Why Smart Meters Might Be a Dumb Idea.”

So it’s not all that surprising that so far – hundreds of thousands of “Smart” Meters have been recalled and/or replaced throughout North America due to various reasons including fires, explosions, general failure, and measurement errors.  There are utility companies who are already making plans to replace hundreds of thousands more.

All over the world, concerned citizens, elected officials, and organizations have been fighting to keep “Smart” Meters out of their communities due to health, safety, privacy, and cybersecurity concerns.  When they haven’t been able to completely stop utilities, they fight for the right to “opt out” of “Smart Meters” being installed on their homes and businesses.

The vaccine industry is under assault from various angles.  It’s only a matter of time before their fraudulent “consensus science” paradigm is exposed and picked apart as false and probably even will be discouraged from being considered as a prophylactic health modality.

One of the indicators of such a developing trajectory is found in the article “Immunity and Impunity: Corruption in the State-Pharma Nexus” published by Paddy Rawlinson, Associate Professor in International Criminology, Human and Development Studies, Western Sydney University, Bankstown Campus, Bankstown NSW, Australia.

Professor Rawlinson’s article is “Open Source.” I’d like to impress how a criminologist apparently views and assesses the deceitful shenanigans of Big Pharma, their research and toxic vaccines.  As most readers probably know, Australia is a ‘hotbed’ of repressive vaccine pseudoscience with deprivation of parental rights regarding informed consent, right to self-determination and mandatory children’s vaccinations.

Rawlinson opens his article stating that he examines “the corruption within the state-corporate nexus as it relates to vaccines and the pharmaindustry; that is the networks of industry, medical and political actors involved in their research, manufacturing, regulation and dissemination.”

Furthermore, he contends “The pharmaceutical industry (pharmaindustry) is no stranger to corruption.”

An estimated 5.5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. The symptoms of this debilitating illness include memory loss, agitation, mood swings, impaired judgment, difficulty handling money effectively, struggling with normal everyday tasks, confusion, misplacing things and difficulty communicating, among many others. The incredible strain this illness places on families and caregivers of those suffering with Alzheimer’s makes it understandable that many turn to antipsychotic drugs like haloperidol and risperidone to help to calm the affected person and make the condition more manageable.

A shocking new study by researchers at the University of Eastern Finland, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, however, may have many families thinking twice about turning to these toxic drugs.

IOS Press reported:

Antipsychotic drug use is associated with a 60 percent increased risk of mortality among persons with Alzheimer’s disease, shows a recent study from the University of Eastern Finland. The risk was highest at the beginning of drug use and remained increased in long-term use. Use of two or more antipsychotic drugs concomitantly was associated with almost two times higher risk of mortality than monotherapy.

The opioid crisis has killed thousands in the United States, and as more than 100 Americans die every day, opium poppy cultivation has hit a record high in Afghanistan in 2017. Coincidentally, President Donald Trump’s troop surge in Afghanistan has essentially been completed, boosting the number of service members on the ground from 11,000 to 14,000, the Pentagon said this week.

We’ve just completed a force flow into Afghanistan,” Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the Pentagon’s Joint Staff Director, said at a news conference. “The new number for Afghanistan is now approximately 14,000—might be a little above that, might be a little below that, as we flex according to the mission.”

Coinciding with the completion of the troop surge, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and Afghanistan’s Ministry of Counter Narcotics released a report claiming that the “area under opium poppy cultivation increased by 63% since 2016, reaching a new record high.”

Have you noticed that no matter how poor people are, anywhere in the world, they are all engaged in a desperate struggle for survival? 
 
No matter how bad their life is, they want more of it.
 
This survival instinct is mirrored by all people no matter their material status.
 
Life must be pretty good if people cling to it so tenaciously.
 
However, if we compare the time and energy we devote to ensuring our survival with the time and energy we spend feeling grateful for life; well, there’s no comparison. 
 
I doubt if we spend 1/10th of one percent of our energy feeling grateful for the thing we love so much that we dedicate the other 99.9% of our energy to maintain. 
 
Part of the reason is that we don’t know whom to thank because the Illuminati have stolen God. God is the magnificent power that gave us the gift of life.
 
Thank you, God!
 
Not only do we not feel gratitude, we devote a ton of energy to being actively ungrateful. 
 
I’m pretty comfortable but there is a hardly a day that goes by that I don’t rue some investment decision I didn’t made 20 years ago. 
Enough is always a little more than what one has, wrote Samuel Butler.
 
I have to think about people who are suffering in order to appreciate how good my life is. Isn’t that pathetic? 
 Thanksgiving is a time to think about the glass half-full rather than half-empty, a time to think of what’s right instead of what’s wrong. 
 
And while many have been traumatized by politics, we can be grateful that we still have democracy and a large measure of freedom.  Let’s not take that for granted either.

| 28 Nov 2017 | A medical researcher has been found dead after reporting a “breakthrough” discovery in the cure for cancer. 40-year-old Dr. Miguel Crespo’s body was found in the bathroom of the Weill Cornell Medical Center on the Upper East Side in New York where he worked after going missing for several hours. Police investigators say they are still trying to piece together how the young doctor had died but say that he most likely committed suicide [Yeah, right!] by taking a drug overdose after they found vomit next to his body in the 8th-floor bathroom and said he had been “foaming at the mouth.”

–The amount of radioactive water at Fukushima is still growing, by 150 tons a day. | 26 Nov 2017 | The Japanese government is being urged by experts to gradually release radioactive water in to the Pacific Ocean more than six years after a tsunami overwhelmed the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The water is stored on site in around 900 large and densely packed tanks and could spill should another major disaster strike. The government has been urged to release the water into the ocean as all the radioactive elements of the water except tritium have [*allegedly*] been removed through treatment. But if the tank breaks, the contents may not be able to be controlled.

Japan is poised to flood the Pacific Ocean with one million tons of radioactive water contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear power plant

| 07 Nov 2017 | The mother of a 10-year-old Edmonton boy who came down with diphtheria — potentially exposing his elementary school class to the disease — said her son is up to date on all of his vaccinations. [That’s likely how he got the disease in the first place.] Shewchuk’s son is a student at Evansdale Elementary School in north Edmonton. Edmonton Public Schools said it was notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) on Friday about a case of cutaneous diphtheria at one of its schools. Shewchuk doesn’t know how her son contracted the disease, but said he has battled severe eczema [a condition likely caused by vaccines] since he was five months old, and that makes him more susceptible to certain illnesses.

Story at-a-glance

  • While Americans faced more than 180 legislative attempts in the states to expand vaccine mandates and restrict or eliminate vaccine choices in the past two years, all but a few have been successfully defeated
  • The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is leading the charge in the U.S. to protect vaccine informed consent rights. By joining the NVIC Vaccine Advocacy Portal, you will have the latest information on upcoming state and federal vaccine bills requiring action
  • Americans are no longer alone in our fight for medical freedom of choice, as the aggressive push for mandatory vaccinations has gone international
  • Australian parents now forfeit nontaxable child benefit payments unless their children receive all government-mandated vaccines, and unvaccinated children are barred from day care and preschool
  • Italy has made 10 vaccines mandatory for preschool attendance, whereas before they had none. Noncompliance will result in a hefty fine. France is also threatening to add more vaccine mandates

By Dr. Mercola

I’ve written many articles discussing vaccine safety and freedom of choice. The encouraging news is that while we’ve faced more than 180 legislative attempts in the states to add more vaccine mandates and restrict or eliminate vaccine choices in the U.S. in the past two years, we’ve successfully defeated all but a few. As noted by Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):

“What we’ve seen in the last few years is a very orchestrated attack on vaccine laws that allow people to have choice … We’ve had some of the most restrictive and oppressive vaccine laws. We do have exemptions in the laws and that’s what they want to eliminate. They want to eliminate all choice.

We have organized, and — through the NVIC advocacy portal, which people can sign onto — we’ve kept people informed by monitoring all the bills in the States. We have been able to generate enough opposition to not lose, despite more than 180 bills this last legislative session trying to add more vaccine mandates, trying to monitor vaccine status of everyone, trying to restrict or eliminate exemptions — we defeated all of those bad vaccine bills.

The only bill that passed was a meningococcal vaccine mandate in Indiana for college students. This is an incredible accomplishment, but the heat is on. We’re going to see another mass attempt in 2018 to take away exemptions.”

A man born without thighs because of a rare medical condition has found love with a woman he met on Facebook.

Nathan Hrdlicka – who is 1.37m (4ft 6in) tall – has been called a ‘midget’ but is now happy in a loving relationship with girlfriend Chelsee Stuart.

When 34-year-old Nathan, from Santa Fe, New Mexico, met 19-year-old Chelsee – who is at least a foot taller than him – online, she initially saw his height as a ‘problem’.

But then she fell in love with him and has seen past his disability.

The couple have revealed their height difference draws stares but people can see they are in love.

Nathan is one of just 25 people in the world born with tbilateral proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD) type D – which means his knee bones are directly beneath his hip bones.

Nathan Hrdlicka, from New Mexico, pictured with girlfriend Chelsee Stuart, is one of 25 in the world with PFFD

The opioid problems notwithstanding, has it ever occurred to healthcare consumers and allopathic medicine’s patients as to why you aren’t told the warnings, contraindications or adverse effects regarding the Rx-prescription MDs give you, often as many as 3 “scripts” at a time, when no studies have been done to determine if there are adverse reactions or contraindications from taking various chemical pharmaceuticals and legal drugs simultaneously?

Doctors are swift to advise patients about not taking vitamins, supplements, herbal and natural remedies—that’s a known given.  However, are they as quick to tell patients about the chemicals they are prescribing, often willy-nilly-like and as guesstimates?  Furthermore, how many times are there prescription adverse reactions, especially with the elderly, probably resulting due to what Big Pharma’s sales reps pitch to physicians about mainstreaming new drugs or the kick-backs docs will receive for prescribing them?

Saving the planet, fixing healthcare, replacing conventional currency—there is apparently nothing that the shared-database technology known as blockchains can’t fix. At least, that’s the impression given by the horde of governments, banks, entrepreneurs, and tech companies working on the technology. But what is a blockchain and why the excitement? If you’ve got 2 minutes, WIRED can explain.
