Wireless “Smart” Meter Warnings

By Warren Woodward

This month there were a couple of very important developments regarding the near constant microwave transmissions of “smart” meters that the utility industry insists are safe.

On May 11th, 190 independent, published scientists who specialize in ElectroMagnetic Field (EMF) research from 39 countries petitioned the United Nations to protect humans and wildlife from electromagnetic fields and wireless technology.

Now, less than two weeks later, the International EMF Scientist Appeal has grown to 205 EMF scientists from 40 countries. Between them all, they have over 2,000 peer-reviewed EMF studies published...

Activists Prepare for 4th Global March Against Monsanto

By Derrick Broze

For the fourth time since 2013, the March Against Monsanto will take place in cities around the world. On May 23, 2015, concerned activists, urban farmers, and environmental activists will hit the streets of 428 cities spread across 38 countries.

The MAM movement was started in late 2012 in an effort to raise awareness to the potential dangers surrounding Monsanto’s genetically modified seeds, as well as the carcinogens present in the company’s top herbicide, Roundup...

Why Is Bird Flu Hitting Millions of CAFO Birds but Sparing Backyard Flocks?

Bird flu is hitting an unprecedented number of CAFO lot chickens right now, but the situation is being reported in the mainstream media as a mystery. Why are backyard flocks escaping the virulent bird flu that’s wiping out millions of caged birds in biosecure metal buildings? Is it because birds raised in fresh air and sunshine are more capable of fighting off viruses? If that was true then why are the wild waterfowl: ducks and geese, etc., catching the deadly flu? Or maybe they’re not. Something is just not adding up here…

Cops who flash banged infant’s crib blame the baby

Nearly a year has passed since a Habersham County SWAT team stormed into the Phonesavanh residence, and very nearly killed their 19-month-old child. The no-knock raid was prompted by an anonymous tip which suggested there were drugs in the house. As the officers forced their way into the home, they lobbed a flash grenade which wound up landing in the crib where baby “bou-bou” was sleeping. As it erupted, the infant suffered severe burns and had to be taken to the hospital, and placed in a medically induced coma.

Major Lawsuit Targets Monsanto for Selling Cancer-Linked Herbicide

Glyphosate is harmful to humans and animals…

Those claims that Monsanto made – that glyphosate was harmless to humans – well, the company is about to pay for that ‘false advertising’ in the form of a class action lawsuit put forth by the offices of T. Matthew Phillips in Los Angeles, California.

In the lawsuit filed in California, Monsanto is accused of:

The deliberate falsification to conceal the fact that glyphosate is harmful to humans and animals.

The class action lawsuit (Case No: BC 578 942) was filed in Los Angeles County, California against biotechnology giant Monsanto. It alleges that Monsanto is guilty of false advertising by claiming that glyphosate, the active ingredient in their best-selling herbicide, Roundup, “targets an enzyme only found in plants and not in humans or animals.” You can see this statement marked clearly on some of Monsanto’s products sold in the state.

What Do Takata Air Bags Have in Common with Vaccines?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Both are consumer products. Both are manufactured by mega corporations. Both products have sales in the millions, if not many times more. Plus, both have killed individuals. However, there’s a significant uncommonness between both products, though: Takata air bags have killed only five (5) people in the USA, which set off a massive recall effort of accountability on the part of the manufacturer, whereas vaccines have killed hundreds, if not thousands or more, and nothing—zilch, other than apparent cover-ups—have occurred to prevent future child abuse!

Here’s proof for the above statement...

GOOGLE FIBER USERS SUSPECTED OF DOWNLOADING ILLEGAL CONTENT MAY FIND AUTOMATIC DEMANDS FOR MONEY

Demands for payment, often settled online, can range from $20 to several hundred dollars.

Google Fiber, the high-speed broadband service, is quickly expanding across the United States. Touting speeds which leave current Internet offerings in the dust -- allowing consumers to enjoy up to 1 GB/ps -- the service has moved from its original pilot grounds in Kansas City and is expected to appear in Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, NC along with Nashville, TN and Atlanta, GA later this year.

Consumers are clamouring for broadband speeds up to 100 times faster than the national average, but may have a nasty shock if they plan to use the service in order to download content from file-sharing websites and torrent search engines which infringe upon intellectual copyright.

SPECIAL OPERATORS ARE USING RAPID DNA READERS, THE POLICE WILL BE TOO SOON

On Wednesday, representatives from the U.S. Special Operations Command revealed that they were testing two rapidDNA readers in forward locations. The operators feed in a DNA sample, and the reader compares it against a database that matches DNA to identities. The machines weigh some 60 pounds, so they aren’t small. And they aren’t cheap: each costs about $250,000. But they can give a result in 90 minutes, a process that used to take weeks.

Fantasy: Vaccines Remarkably "Safe and Effective"

For years, critics on the fringes of medicine have pointed to problems with vaccines. It is generally acknowledged that, given to people whose immune systems are compromised, they can be immunosuppressive.

And from time to time, stories have surfaced about vaccines which have been dangerously contaminated by extraneous viruses or bacteria, as a result of the manufacturing process.

We are taught to believe that untoward reactions to vaccines are rare, and that there has never been a question about the overwhelming success of all vaccines at all times, wherever they have been used.

The history of vaccines, though, shows a much more disturbing record than one might think. Here is a series of excerpts from authors on the subject. It is a quite different slant on vaccines.

GM SAYS YOU DON'T OWN YOUR CAR, YOU JUST LICENSE IT

GM has joined with John Deere in asking the government to confirm that you literally cannot own your car because of the software in its engine. Like Deere, GM wants to stop the Copyright Office from granting an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that would allow you to jailbreak the code in your car's engine so that you can take it to a non-GM mechanic for service, or fix it yourself. By controlling who can service your car, GM can force you to buy only official, expensive parts, protecting its bottom line.

WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION OVERRULES U.S. COUNTRY-OF-ORIGIN RULES FOR MEAT PRODUCTS

U.S. government attempts to inform consumers about the origins of the beef and pork they purchase in stores have been undermined by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Siding with officials from Canada and Mexico, the WTO ruled that American regulations that require the meat industry to use country of origin labels (COOL) represent a violation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). COOLs are intended to tell shoppers in which country the meat they buy was born, raised and slaughtered. In addition to letting consumers know if the meat was produced locally, they gave regulators a way to begin tracing the meat in case of a problem with it.

Just Not That Kind of Place: Walmart Uses Entire Training Video To Bad-Mouth Unions

Today's victory for workers in L.A., which passed a $15 minimum wage, is one more sign the nation's biggest, sleaziest retailer may land on the wrong side of history. When Walmart caved to worker pressure last year and agreed to give its "associates" paltry wage increases - paltry enough many of them still must rely on food stamps and other government assistance to survive - some observers thought the greedy behemoth might be changing, albeit glacially, its exploitative ways.

Are Monsanto’s Worst Fears Coming True?

The decision of the Chipotle restaurant chain to make its product lines GMO-free is not most people’s idea of a world-historic event. Especially since Chipotle, by US standards, is not a huge operation. A clear sign that the move is significant, however, is that Chipotle’s decision was met with a tidal-wave of establishment media abuse. Chipotle has been called irresponsible, anti-science, irrational, and much more by the Washington Post, Time Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, and many others. A business deciding to give consumers what they want was surely never so contentious.

AE911Truth - "Overwhelming Majority of AIA Delegates Make the Political Decision and Vote Down Resolution 15-6"

“We are a professional – not a political – organization. But in this case, if we vote “no” on this resolution, we are making a political decision, not a professional one. Thank you very much.” – Daniel Barnum, FAIA

Those were the closing remarks from the lead sponsor of AIA Resolution 15-6, Daniel Barnum, FAIA. Seconds later, the AIA delegates cast their votes. The unfortunate outcome was that an overwhelming majority made the political decision. Resolution 15-6, which called upon the AIA to support a new WTC 7 investigation, was voted down 3,892 to 160, garnering 4% of the delegates’ votes. . .

. . . However, that does not signal to us that we should give up on reaching out to the AIA membership. We are pleased to have gained the signatures of another 150 AIA members, seven of whom are fellows of the Institute. We will continue and intensify our outreach efforts with ever more creative and incisive strategies.

Free home heating offered by e-Radiators

The e-Radiators stored in the test homes are being used to run complex calculations and other computer-intensive jobs for an array of companies and research institutions. Nerdalize will pay the bill for powering the radiators, allowing Eneco customers to stay warm for free. Nerdalize say that the scheme is also environmentally friendly, because energy is effectively used twice in the new system.

"The people's benefit is actually quite simple, what we do is we reimburse the electricity the server uses, and that we can do because of the computer clients on the other side, and in that way home owners actually get heating for free and compute users don't have to pay for the overhead of the data center, so it's pretty much a win-win situation," said Leupe.

Great idea.

Is Diabetes the Easiest Incurable Disease to Cure?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but an incurable disease is being cured. I went over to my local library last fall, to do some research on diabetes. It was an interesting experience. I picked about 10 books off the shelf, and took them to a study table. You can see a list in the references at the bottom.

One of the books, one in ten, claimed to cure diabetes. The others provided ‘treatments’ and guidelines on ‘how to live with your diabetes’, assuming, even stating clearly in most cases, that “diabetes cannot be cured”. The truth is a bit longer sentence: “”Diabetes cannot be cured by medicines”.

There are two ‘types’ of diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes (in theory) exists when your body loses ALL of the islet cells in the pancreas, thus, according to the Theory of Cures, it is a disability, not a disease. Disabilities cannot be cured. But if the theory is wrong, if our understanding of type 1 diabetes is wrong, it might be curable. Or maybe it’s curable some of the time?

Toyota and Nissan recall 6.5MILLION more cars over airbag faults - and total will rise even higher as Honda is set to follow suit

Japanese car giants Toyota and Nissan are recalling 6.5million cars worldwide after the companies discovered yet more faults with their airbags.

The new action takes the total recalled since 2008 to 31million, and it is set to rise even higher as Honda confirmed it would follow suit, but refused to say how many cars would be affected.

The car makers say they have identified a fault with the airbags that can make them deploy abnormally or rupture during a crash, putting the safety of drivers at risk, and potentially opening them up to the threat of lawsuits.

The airbags were all made by Japanese firm Takata, with the first fault reported as early as 2001.

“Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” – The Georgia Guidestones The full-spectrum global attack on human health is quite obvious to see for anyone who is paying attention and in search of wellness. So many of the factors

The US government has finally admitted they’ve overdosed Americans on fluoride and, for first time since 1962, are lowering its recommended level of fluoride in drinking water.1,2,3

About 40 percent of American teens have dental fluorosis,4 a condition referring to changes in the appearance of tooth enamel—from chalky-looking lines and splotches to dark staining and pitting—caused by long-term ingestion of fluoride during the time teeth are forming.

In some areas, fluorosis rates are as high as 70-80 percent, with some children suffering from advanced forms.

The former recommendation called for a fluoride level of 0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter (mg/L) of water. The new upper limit set by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is 0.7 mg/L, to prevent these visible signs of toxic overexposure.

“Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” – The Georgia Guidestones

The full-spectrum global attack on human health is quite obvious to see for anyone who is paying attention and in search of wellness. So many of the factors that are negatively influencing public heath could easily be prevented or removed from society, yet the decisions of the ruling class continue to ensure that our food supply is toxic, that our environment is compromised, and that our exposure to chemicals and industrial waste is total. Why?

With the stroke of a pen carcinogenic poisons like Monsanto’s Roundup could be banned. Industrial disasters like Fukushima or the Deepwater Horizon could easily get the attention they deserve from world powers, but the will to intervene on behalf of human and environmental health is zero, while the will to intervene militarily in corporate and political affairs is guaranteed.

People always say that whatever technology The Powers That (Shouldn't) Be are flaunting, whatever they keep all to themselves away from public consumption is likely decades into the future... and much, much worse.

So if these are the futuristic police state horrors they were talking about nearly a decade ago, can you even imagine what lovely little goodies they've got tucked away now?

New Example of the Pentagon, DEA and Private Companies Conspiring to Beat Encryption, Track Everything You Do

Yet another report has surfaced describing how tools created by the companies selling software that can damage and hack into people’s computers are being deployed by U.S. security services. While the coverage surrounding this story focuses primarily on federal agencies it’s important to step back for a moment and view the big picture. In particular, looking at who builds, operates, and profits from mass surveillance technology offers insight into the nature of the global panopticon.

The program appears to be directed at Pakistan, although the underlying technology could be used to analyze data collected on Americans through the Section 215 dragnets.

Ex-NSA security staffer: Apple Macs are wide open to malware

Patrick Wardle, a former NSA staffer and NASA intern who now heads up research at crowd-sourced security intelligence firm Synack, found that Apple’s defensive Gatekeeper technology can be bypassed allowing unsigned code to run. Apple’s Gatekeeper utility is pre-installed in Mac OS X PCs and used to verify code. The tool is designed so that by default it will only allow signed code to run or, depending on settings, only packages from the Mac App Store.

Congress Tells Court That Congress Can’t Be Investigated for Insider Trading

In a little-noticed brief filed last summer, lawyers for the House of Representatives claimed that an SEC investigation of congressional insider trading should be blocked on principle, because lawmakers and their staff are constitutionally protected from such inquiries given the nature of their work. The legal team led by Kerry W. Kircher, who was appointed House General Counsel by Speaker John Boehner in 2011, claimed that the insider trading probe violated the separation of powers between the legislative and executive branch.

A Shopping & Eating Guide to Non-GMO Foods

By Catherine J. Frompovich

A dear friend gifted me with a sweatshirt that said, “GMO OMG WTF Are We Eating?” I can’t tell you how much I really appreciated that thoughtful gift. I even wore it to the screening of a film about GMOs where I was a member of the panel discussion afterward. Almost everyone who saw the message gave a thumb’s up! However, once or twice I saw a different finger response, so I asked if they didn’t like the sweatshirt. Oh no, the sweatshirt was fine; they didn’t like being forced to eat foods not knowing which edibles had GMO ingredients since there is no mandatory labeling of GMOs in the USA.

Hopefully, this guide can make that easier and, certainly, more reliable. I’ve pulled together as comprehensive a guide as possible from various online sources to take into consideration as many relevant aspects and angles of the Non-GMO / GMO conundrum...

It should not then be surprising that companies like Chevron are extending their magnanimous offer of "crop water" in the form of fracking waste chemicals - for a price, of course.

Will superweeds, regulation create a perfect storm in Iowa farmlands?

Let’s unpack what has happened. Farmers’ dissatisfaction with rising costs of herbicide-resistant weeds has been evident since 2008. But another superweed, Palmer amaranth, has now arrived in five Iowa counties. By 2004, this weed was already costing Southern farmers $35-40 an acre to control. Now even more tolerant to herbicides, this amaranth costs as much as $150 per acre to control in some states. But EPA’s decision to constrain glyphosate use is not just focused on Palmer amaranth, because a dozen other superweeds also plague 60 million acres of U.S. croplands. As Iowa State University’s Mike Owen conceded, “Simple and convenient tactics are failing rapidly and farmers must diversify, not just the herbicides they use, but everything.”

In March, the WHO claimed a possible link between glyphosate exposure and non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Conclusive or not, this report will be hotly debated. But what is not debated is that non-Hodgkins rates in the U.S. have doubled since the 1980s. It has become the fifth-leading cause of cancer in the United States. Farmers’ and farmworkers’ exposure to a variety of stresses already affects their health. Since they are the people who feed America, our agricultural workforce must consider whether additional safeguards are needed to avoid potential health risks.

People are being told to run out of the building for 15 minutes, open windows and turn off the heat. Additionally the bulbs do not last as long as advertised and they take a long time to warm up, decreasing in brightness over time. The light they emit is not a full spectrum steady light. Few Bulbs actually get recycled and they need to be treated as hazardous materials when discarding them. Consumers be alerted!

Hollywood is making it difficult for me not to write the same A.I. analysis over and over, but some new ground is tread here to investigate in the midst of the same pattern we’ve been witnessing of late, the extinction of man through mass depopulation and his subjugation and/or replacement with an A.I. control grid.

Boeing 787 software bug can shut down planes' generators IN FLIGHT

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a new airworthiness directive (PDF) for Boeing's 787 because a software bug shuts down the plane's electricity generators every 248 days.

“We have been advised by Boeing of an issue identified during laboratory testing,” the directive says. That issue sees “The software counter internal to the generator control units (GCUs) will overflow after 248 days of continuous power, causing that GCU to go into failsafe mode.”

When the GCU is in failsafe mode it isn't making any power. That'll be bad news if all four of the GCUs aboard a 787 were powered up at the same time, because all will then shut down, “resulting in a loss of all AC electrical power regardless of flight phase.”

Oil Prices Up, Gasoline Prices Up

“A rebound in crude oil prices has fueled up gasoline prices in the last week across the United States, with even bigger spikes in the West Coast, where refinery problems have returned. The national average stands at a four month high, though for this date prices remain at their lowest since 2009. Late last week, West Texas Intermediate crude oil stood near $58 a barrel, the highest since December 15, 2014. That price stands some $10 a barrel higher than a month ago, and has been a key contributor to the rise in gasoline prices that many states are witnessing. Refinery issues along the West Coast have added insult to injury for Californians, where prices are up by 25 cents per gallon just in the last week in some areas.”

British Doctors Now Asking Elderly If They’re Ready to Die

Ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed, Americans have been asking themselves if our healthcare will ever resemble the UK’s socialized medical system. Some have greeted it with praise, while others have been concerned that our healthcare could turn to death panels to cut costs. Now the UK’s National Health Service has given us another unfortunate condition to look forward to. They recently told all doctors to ask every patient over 75 if they would like to establish a “do not resuscitate” order for future emergencies. In some cases, the doctors are ordering their nurses to cold-call every elderly patient, and everyone with a long-term condition, to see if they have “thought about resuscitation.”

71% OF WALL STREET BANKERS ADMIT THEY ARE TOO BIG TO FAIL (AND UNDERPAID)

Wall Streeters are not happy. According to the latest Bloomberg poll, 48% believe they are paid less (or much less) than they had hoped for.

With the biggest banks cutting costs as new regulations force derisking and deleveraging (in theory), pay is taking a hit (although not so much for the CEOs). As one headhunter noted, "they're still making decent money, but it’s nothing like 2007," but ironically, a massive 71% of Wall Street bankers admit that their banks are still Too Big To Fail.

Public School “Child Nutrition Supervisor” Served Students Reeking, Six-Year-Old Pork

(Nutritional Anarchy) Stories continually coming out of public schools illustrate time and again that our school lunches are “bad,” but this story makes Michelle Obama’s school lunch program look like a fancy dinner at a four-star restaurant.

After a determination made by someone given the title “Child Nutrition Supervisor” and the school’s cafeteria managers who performed “tests,” a decision was made to serve school children six-year-old pork in Hawkins County, Tennessee.

First of all… if you have to perform tests before you serve something obviously questionable enough to warrant tests to hundreds of trusting, innocent children…

Here’s an actual quote about the meat from local news outlet WBIR:

“The actual woman making a stink about it said it smelled so bad they made gravy to put over the meat to give it a smell and give it a better taste,” said [Hawkins County Commissioner Michael] Herrell.

Utility-issued 'smart' meters explode on 5,000 homes after truck rams utility pole

Thousands of California residents were left without power recently after their so-called "smart" meters exploded due to an unexpected power surge. According to CBS Sacramento, more than 5,000 homes in the Stockton area were left with blackened, charred, and completely destroyed smart meters after a dump truck crashed into a nearby utility pole, pulling the static line down onto the distribution line.

When the two lines intersect, stated PG&E spokeswoman Brandi Ehlers to the media, the resultant surge causes a major overload to the system. And when smart meters are involved, this overload can cause the meters themselves to pop and literally blow up, potentially causing a fire or other property damage not typically caused by traditional analog meters.

US Postal Service is CRAP!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In yet another symptom of the decline and fall of the American Empire, the US postal service has, for the second time this year, lost a package headed towards me routed through their Richmond, CA sorting center. Attempts to complain about the missing package are met with a non-working customer complaint email system, as seen above. The Richmond center has been a source of major complaints about missing/stolen items for years and every 6 months the USPS issues a statement that the problem has been solved, and we quickly learn it has not. America the greatest nation on earth? They can't even deliver the mail reliably any more!

Apple Bans Fart Apps From the Apple Watch

Apple is pitching the Apple Watch as a time-saver, a fitness companion and a stylish fashion accessory. But it could also be a pretty great office prank tool, if the makers of the “Fart Watch” app had their way.

Essentially, the app turns the Apple Watch and a paired up iPhone into a whoopie cushion for the 21st century. Place the iPhone near your intended target, wait for the opportune moment, then tap the Apple Watch app to release fake flatulence at will.

But unfortunately for the Fart Watch developers, Apple doesn’t see this all as one big gas.

F-35 Engines From United Technologies Called Unreliable

F-35 engines from United Technologies Corp. are proving so unreliable that U.S. plans to increase production of the fighter jet may be slowed, according to congressional auditors.

Data from flight tests evaluated by the Government Accountability Office show the reliability of engines from the company’s Pratt & Whitney unit is “very poor (less than half of what it should be) and has limited” progress for the F-35, the costliest U.S. weapons system, the watchdog agency said in a report sent to lawmakers this month.

The GAO cited the need to make design changes to the engines and then retrofit planes already built, along with continuing flaws in the plane’s software, in a report that warned the Defense Department’s “procurement plan may not be affordable.” The military plans to spend $391.1 billion for a fleet of 2,443 planes from prime contractor Lockheed Martin Corp.

Attempting to squeeze every last drop of credibility from the “safe and effective” argument, senators across the U.S. appear to be ignoring the voices of their people in addition to over $3 billion of payouts in the U.S. alone from The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the George W. Bush administration ordered the National Security Agency (NSA) to ignore the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 by beginning the secret warrantless surveillance of international phone calls, emails and data without going through the Judicial Branch of government. This surveillance evolved into a program called Stellarwind. Now, newly declassified documents show that the data obtained from Stellarwind was so secret that it was not useful in tracking terrorists.

Figures Don’t Lie, But Liars Figure — Medically Speaking

By Catherine J. Frompovich

From very early on in life, everyone learns how important math is, especially that one and one equal two, not three or even two-and-a-half! However, when it comes to statistics and other mathematical markers for business, industry, and even science, numbers sometimes belie the reality of the facts, depending upon who wants to prove what, and to whom.

Recently, I’ve been thinking about the cost of healthcare—or is it sickness care—in the United States, and how it’s been escalating despite the purported advances in medical science and even the outlandish contention that vaccines can help to reduce sickness and its costs by improving, what’s euphemistically called, ‘herd immunity’. Let’s get one thing accurate: I don’t consider myself—or any person—to be a member of any animal herd. I’m a human being...

Toyota's killer firmware: Bad design and its consequences

Embedded software used to be low-level code we'd bang together using C or assembler. These days, even a relatively straightforward, albeit critical, task like throttle control is likely to use a sophisticated RTOS and tens of thousands of lines of code.

With all this sophistication, standards and practices for design, coding, and testing become paramount – especially when the function involved is safety-critical. Failure is not an option. It is something to be contained and benign.

So what happens when an automaker decides to wing it and play by their own rules? To disregard the rigorous standards, best practices, and checks and balances required of such software (and hardware) design? People are killed, reputations ruined, and billions of dollars are paid out. That's what happens. Here's the story of some software that arguably never should have been.

Company breaks open Apple Watch to discover what it says is 'planned obsolescence'

“The S1 SiP [internal system in package] is encased in resin, and is further held in place by a mess of glue and soldered ribbon connectors. In short, basic component replacements look nearly impossible.”

The s1SiP is custom-designed Apple technology that integrates a number of subsystems like the chip into one package. It is encased in resin to increase its durability.

Therefore, according to iFixit, the Apple Watch has intentional obsolescence built into it as it will become technologically redundant as processors become faster and apps are supported only by the newest models.

This tactic is known as 'planned obsolescence' and has been an accusation levelled at Apple for a number of years.

Is it time to put a woman’s face on the $20 bill?

It is no coincidence that the target of this effort is Andrew Jackson. Really, the last President to fight the private central bankers centered in the City of London, UK, and win. It is also no coincidence that Jackson was the target of a unsuccessful assassination attempt in the wake of his battles with the private central banks. The two are connected.

In fact, it is my opinion, the assassinations of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and even Kennedy are linked, in part, to their attitudes towards the private central bank that really has been running the world since the Battle of Waterloo: their opinion that the money ownership of the United States should be vested in the people and the states per the US Constitution.

False economy - 98% of cars can't match their mpg claims

If you bought a car advertised as offering fuel economy of 148 miles-per-gallon, but it then failed to deliver more than 67mpg – less than half – you’d be pretty disappointed. You’d also be spending a whopping £459 more a year on fuel than you expected.

Astonishingly, that’s exactly the situation you could be in if you bought a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – a plug-in hybrid that is marketed on the strength of its efficiency.

But Mitsubishi’s SUV is far from the only car that fails to reach its official fuel economy figure – in fact, Which? testing has found that 98% of the 200 cars we assessed over the past two years couldn’t match or beat their mpg claims, with all but three missing their official figures.
