Bill Passed: EPA Must Only Take Advice from Industry Shills, NOT from Independent Scientists

The Environmental Protection Agency is a federal agency that is charged with the responsibility of writing and enforcing legislation to protect human health and the environment. Established under Nixon in 1970, the EPA is another one of those agencies that sounds like a good idea, until you peel off the shiny friendly top layer to discover the stench of corruption underneath. Up until now, they at least pretended to be there to serve as watchdogs, but it seems like they've decided to give up on that silly illusion.

Since they are looking after all things environmental, they need unbiased specialists to advise them on policies and issues.

Silly me, I always thought that sounded sort of...I dunno...science-y.

Our estimable House of Representatives disagrees.

Could SUNSCREEN stop men having children? Chemicals that block UV rays 'may impair male fertility'

Slapping on sunscreen could reduce a man's ability to have a baby, according to new research.

A study found that chemicals commonly found in sunscreen, which filter out UV rays, can impair male fertility.

Experts warned when these chemicals are absorbed by the skin, they can interfere with the body's hormones.

Men exposed to specific chemicals called BP-2 or 4OH-BP had a 30 per cent reduction in fertility.

Ebola Blood Samples Stolen by Bandits in Guinea

A bizarre - and quite confusing - story was reported by the Associated Press today.

It was a highway robbery but the bandits got more than they bargained for when they stopped a taxi van in Guinea and made off with blood samples that are believed to be infected with the deadly Ebola virus.

Details are a bit sketchy, but apparently the Red Cross used a minibus taxi to transport blood samples for a 165 mile trip from central Kankan prefecture to a test site in southern Gueckedou.

Here's where it gets odd...

Right now, the heart of the ACTUAL American struggle against Monsanto is in Maui.

Maui is a very important piece of Monsanto’s empire. Because of the year-round weather, they can run many, many tests on new GMO crop varieties.

Living under the sea: Japanese visionaries unveil underwater city plan

Will people ever live in underwater cities? Japanese construction firm says it is possible by 2030. The visionaries revealed a $25 billion deep-sea eco-city plan called Ocean Spiral for 5,000 people that will produce energy from sea resources.

Many have pondered the idea of living under the sea while sci-fi film directors such as George Lucas tempted our imagination with stunning images of underwater cities. Such was the Gungan city consisting of a mass of hydrostatic bubbles shown in the first part of the “Star wars” epic space film series.

Now a Japanese construction firm Shimizu Corp. says that building an underwater residential area is not a fantasy and aims to build one by 2030 – in just 15 years.

How to Avoid GMOs When You're on a Budget

The anti-GMO movementhttp://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=elg02-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00J2PQY5E is picking up steam, for a multitude of excellent reasons. My family is making continuous efforts to remove genetically modified products from our lives. If you want to learn how you can banish them too, read on!

Forget about GMO labeling.

First of all, let’s face some facts here. Crony capitalism in America isn’t going to allow changes that would require the labeling of genetically modified ingredients in your food. While in a perfect world, a place that requires people selling healthfully grown organic foods to jump backwards through hoops and turn a cartwheel to be allowed to place a “certified organic label” on their items, Big Agri can blithely don hazmat suits to spray ever-increasing amounts of glyphosate on crops that have been genetically modified to withstand the poisons, with nary a word to consumers.

“Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev recently announced that Russia will no longer import GMO products, stating that the nation has enough space, and enough resources to produce organic food. ‘If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat them. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food.’” (Collective Evolution, April 15, 2014, “It’s Official—Russia completely bans GMOs.”)

Rise in ADHD cases is 'due to marketing, not medicine': Study blames increase on drug companies, pushy support groups, and people self-diagnosing online

After examining the growth of ADHA in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Brazil, they concluded there are five trends which contribute to its growth.

They blame the rise on lobbying from drug companies, who have spurred some countries to relax the restrictions put on stimulants like Ritalin, the most well-known drug used to treat ADHD.

Psychoanalytic treatment of the condition, usually with talking therapies, is slowly being eroded in favour of treating the problem with drugs, they said.

More psychologists and psychiatrists are now adopting the American Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) standards, which are broader and have a lower threshold for diagnosing ADHD, they added.

Unfortunately, this painful and lucrative procedure of removing lymph nodes has long been routine for breast cancer patients.

Feds crack down on phony Ebola cures

Would you buy an Ebola cure over the Internet?

At least three companies hope so. Internet retailers Bodyhealth.com, Ebola-C and LifeSilver imply on their web sites, Facebook pages or Twitter accounts that their products will help ward off or mitigate the Ebola virus.

This week, federal regulators are cracking down.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Federal Trade Commission sent warning letters Tuesday and Wednesday to the three companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last summer, the World Health Organization stated that unproven cures could be tried during the Ebola crisis. But the US Government, the same US Government that just crippled health care in general for the sake of corporate profits with Obamacare, is once again protecting corporate profits by shutting down anyone but the giant pharmaceutical corporations, yet every Ebola treatment offered by the big pharmaceutical companies remains unproven, and some have turned out to be totally ineffective.

Remember, this is the same government that mandated everyone take a vaccine for Swine Flu back in 1976 which killed fifty times more people than the actual flu did. Are you willing to bet your life that they are right this time? I am not.

9 Simple Foods to Naturally Change Your Health

For years, scientists believed aging was a foregone conclusion and out of our control. Recent research, however, indicates that we have more authority over the aging process than previously realized. In fact, aging has more to do with the stress and function of our cells than it does with the number of candles on our birthday cake. The best way to protect cells from aging involves regular consumption of potent antioxidants, many of which are freely available in plant-based foods.

Flashback: "Deep Impact" Comet Spewed Tons of Water, Study Finds

Scientists are stumped by the behavior of the comet Tempel 1 after NASA sent the Deep Impact space probe hurtling into it last year some 83 million miles (133.5 million kilometers) from Earth.

The flare that resulted from the July 4 collision was originally measured by optical telescopes as being a weak, five-day-long burst.

This suggested that only a small amount of water and other material had been released after impact.

But an analysis of x-ray images taken after the collision indicates that the flare lasted for a full 12 days and released about 250,000 tons (226,800 metric tons) of water in the form of ice-covered dust grains.

"There was disappointment that Deep Impact didn't cause a major optical outburst, but it did cause an x-ray outburst. Why that is, we don't know,'' said Dick Willingale, an astronomer at the University of Leicester in England whose team operated NASA's Swift X-Ray Telescope.

Doomed comet lander delivered harvest of science

And ROSINA, a Rosetta instrument that uses spectrometers to measure gas abundances, has obtained a highly sought after result: the so-called deuterium-to-hydrogen ratio of water in the comet’s thin atmosphere, or coma. The measured value for 67P is much higher than the ratio in Earth’s oceans and higher than in other comets, says ROSINA principal investigator Kathrin Altwegg, of the University of Bern. Three years ago, the comet Hartley-2 was found to have a D-to-H ratio near that of Earth’s oceans—sparking interest in the notion that comet impacts delivered much of Earth’s water. Altwegg says the result for 67P could make asteroids the primary suspect again.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel billed $950K US after giving birth in U.S.

"My water broke two days into our holiday," Huculak-Kimmel said. "I spent six weeks on bed rest and then baby Reece was delivered by emergency C-section on December 10th."

Reece had to stay in the hospital for just over two months. Huculak-Kimmel thought that her insurance would cover the almost $1 million US bill.

In the end, Blue Cross denied payment. In a letter to the family, a Blue Cross worker wrote, "We are unable to provide coverage for any medical expenses incurred for Ms. Huculak's baby" and "please note that Ms. Huculak's travel policy expired on Nov. 9, 2013."

Rosetta's comet reveals its first secrets: Carbon compound found on 67P could explain how life thrived on Earth 3.8 billion years ago

The data returned from the Cosac (Cometary Sampling and Composition Experiment) instrument showed that the comet has an organic compound containing carbon - an important progenitor for life as we know it.

It was also announced that the surface of the comet was far harder than researchers had expected. Before Philae's battery died they were also able to form a 3D mapping mission of the comet's interior using the Rosetta spacecraft.

Food Fascists: GMO and Pesticide Manufacturers Down and Dirty

After decades of rearing hogs, Danish farmer IbBorup Pedersen was alarmed at the growing incidence of malformations and biological defects among his newborn piglets. Deformities included gaps in piglets’ skulls, deformed bones, missing limbs and even a female piglet with testicles. Never having witnessed such large numbers of deformed pigs before, Pedersen realized that it was after switching three years earlier to Monsanto’s GMO feed-- which had been grown with glyphosate--that these birth defects began to appear. Pedersen had the piglets’ bodies sent to a Danish laboratory for analysis. The results were clear; there were high concentrations of Monsanto’s glyphosate pesticide, commonly known as Roundup, in the piglets’ organs.

Man recovering from Ebola quarantined at Delhi airport

Officials have quarantined a man who was cured of Ebola in Liberia but continued to show traces of the virus in samples of his semen after arriving in the country, the health ministry said on Tuesday.

The ministry said in a statement that the Indian national had been shown to be negative for Ebola in tests conforming to World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines, but had been quarantined as a precautionary measure when he arrived at New Delhi airport on November 10. Later, tests of his semen detected traces of the virus.

Soap power: Handwash chemical linked to cancer

Washing your hands with antibacterial soap may be dangerous, a new US study reveals. A chemical found in many liquid handwashes and other basic household products like shampoos and toothpaste has been linked to cancer.

Triclosan is an antimicrobial agent of broad-spectrum and one of the most common additives used in a wide range of consumer products, from kitchenware to toys. Studies have also found traces of the chemical in 97 percent of breast milk samples from lactating women and in the urine of nearly three-quarters of people tested. Triclosan is also common in the environment, being one of the seven most-frequently detected compounds in streams across the US.

One man's lung cancer death sentence permanently removed by honey and herbs

Thirteen years ago, Croatian doctors told Ante Kresich that his lung cancer was beyond treatment and to get things in order and prepare to die. It's unclear how he came upon using local raw honey with herbs, but he did, and he fully recovered.

Kresich's exact formula remains a mystery, but a woman from nearby Bosnia shared her cancer-curing honey ginger recipe. Maybe she was his first source. It seems the Eastern Europeans are open to curing disease naturally without medical authorities threatening them.

Are You Guilty of These 14 Prepper Mistakes?

by Gaye Levy

Webster defines an expert as a person “who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill in a particular area” That being said, when it comes to preparedness, is anyone ever really an expert?

Let’s be realistic. Every prepper, myself included, was a novice at one time or another. Along our journey, we have consulted books, websites, blogs, and various government publications in our quest to learn abut preparedness in general and the prepper lifestyle in particular. Were any of the individual authors of these sources experts? Perhaps they were but if that were the case, why does our search continue?...

Petitioning Jim Benson - Stop Fracking next to El Paso, Texas

Fracking endangers the health, safety and welfare of people, pollutes the air and ground, results in rising crime and social and medical costs, utterly destroys ecosystems and permanently contaminates underground aquifers with toxic compounds and consumes billions of gallons of water. Yet, just a few minutes away from the city limits of El Paso, Texas a major metropolitan area of 675,000 people, and a few miles from the farming community of Dell City, Texas, the University of Texas System has leased over a hundred thousand acres to Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. for the sole purpose of fracking. Torchlight Energy says that it may drill up to as many as 2500 wells on this area immediately east of El Paso called the Diablo Plateau which, with the Otero Mesa in New Mexico, forms a rich ecosystem of plants and animals. Torchlight Energy Resources must not drill there. The University of Texas Lands System must not allow them.

Have scientists finally found the 'gay gene'? Major new study of 800 brothers backs claims sexuality is in our genes

A large study of gay brothers has reignited the debate over whether a 'gay gene' exists - and adds to evidence that genes influence men's chances of being homosexual.

Some scientists believe several genes might affect sexual orientation.

Researchers who led the new study of nearly 800 gay brothers say their results bolster previous evidence pointing to genes on the X chromosome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it amazing how the buy-bull bangers continue to demonize gays as sinful, especially when you consider that Jesus spent all his time with other men (except his wife Mary Magdalene). :)

Beyond that, I think all the people screaming about population control need to understand that humans have a built-in population-limiting mechanism; homosexuality! If you study history it quickly becomes apparent that the per-capita occurrence of homosexuality increases during times of social stress. The gays not only have as much right to be here as anyone else, but in the long run they are essential to the long term survival of the human race.

Comet lander: Camera sees Philae's hairy landing

High-resolution pictures have now been released of the Philae probe in the act of landing on Comet 67P last Wednesday.

They were acquired by the Narrow Angle Camera on the Rosetta satellite, which had dropped the little robot towards the surface of the "ice mountain".

The images are presented as a mosaic covering the half-hour or so around the "first touchdown" - the probe then bounced to a stop about 1km away.

Philae lost battery power on Saturday and is no longer talking with Earth.

President Barack Obama was equally effusive, saying the gathering was not a “chinwag,” an Australian word for meaningless talk. Rather, he said, “it has been a good week for American leadership.” At a press conference, Obama listed expanding trade, a visa accord with China, and “a big advance on climate change” as tangible achievements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the headline accomplishment is a deal to take seriously a problem that was made up in the first place. Left unsaid in this article is the agreement by the G20 to consider bank savings accounts as investments in the bank, subject to loss if the bank gets into trouble.

Big Pharma Sells Ineffective, Potentially Deadly Anti-cancer Drugs

Medical experts are saying that the biggest flaw of Big Pharma today is a high percentage of ineffective products being sold without previous clinical trials. This is particularly true when anti-cancer medications are concerned.The sad fact is that Big Pharma prefers to invest in advertising and bribing officials instead of attempting to make their products truly effective. Today pharmaceutical manufacturing is handsomely funded by politicians and organized crime, since it’s has become one of the most efficient money laundering schemes and has already corrupted a large number of US and EU officials.

Maui's GMO Ban Blocked By Federal Judge

A federal judge says Maui County may not implement a new law banning the cultivation of genetically modified organisms until he can consider arguments in a lawsuit against the measure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the GMO planters will just go on planting and by the time the judge finally hears the lawsuit it will be too late. Maui will be fully contaminated by these dangerous plants. The entire case against the ban is that the GMO companies will suffer harm. The exact same argument could be made about companies that dump toxic and nuclear waste; banning them from dumping their "product" onto Hawaii harms them financially. Does that mean we have to let them go on doing it?

Obamacare Facebook page comments mostly from small group of supporters

Americans began heading anew this weekend to President Obama’s official Obamacare Facebook page to gather information on the new round of health care enrollment, share their experiences shopping for insurance on the federal exchange and voice their opinions on the president’s signature domestic achievement.

However, what some would view as a robust marketplace of ideas is actually controlled by just a few, an analysis of the Web page shows.

Sixty percent of the site’s 226,838 comments generated from September 2012 to early last month can be attributed to fewer than 100 unique profiles, according to an analysis completed by The Washington Times with assistance from an outside data analytics team. Many of those profiles belong to just one person who created multiple aliases or personas to widen her influence and multiply her voice.

There are countless chemicals in use all over the world today, many of which have been linked to cancer and other serious illnesses. Once the chemical is linked to these illnesses the excuse is often that they just didn’t know that the long-term effects of these chemicals would cause such disorders. Kind of like smoking, they just didn’t know that smoking would lead to cancer back then, but now they do because they are seeing it first hand. Even after it was proven that smoking caused cancer, however, it took a long time to fully let the public know. When there is money to be lost the truth often becomes very shady...

Monsanto, Dow Chemical File Lawsuit to Destroy Maui County's GMO Ban

Lawsuit comes just one day after supporters of GMO planting ban in Hawaii filed a motion of their own with local courts seeking "transparency and proper implementation" of the moratorium approved by voters on Election Day.

Though not unexpected, the suit exposes the threat posed to the agrochemical giants when local people rise up in opposition to the destructive nature of their business model.

Alongside other plaintiffs, two of the world's most powerful agrochemical companies, Monsanto and Dow Chemical, filed suit against Maui County in Hawaii on Thursday, less than two weeks after voters there approved a moratorium on the planting and cultivation of genetically-modified crops within the boundaries of their communities.

Their cause of death remains unclear. The surgeries were part of a state-run mass sterilisation campaign.

Navy Plans Electromagnetic War Games Over National Park and Forest in Washington State

These protected national commons are also the areas in and near where the US Navy aims to conduct its Northwest Electromagnetic Radiation Warfare training program, wherein it will fly 36 of its EA-18G "Growler" supersonic jet warplanes down to 1,200 feet above the ground in some areas in order to conduct war games with 14 mobile towers. Enough electromagnetic radiation will be emitted so as to be capable of melting human eye tissue, and causing breast cancer, childhood leukemia and damage to human fetuses, let alone impacting wildlife in the area.

The Bee’s Vanishing Act: Destruction of Honeybee Populations in America

The decline in honeybees is alternately blamed on the unpredictability of flowering by many plants due to climate change, the ravages of the neonicotinoid pesticides introduced in the 1990s, parasitic mites and, more recently, the viruses harbored by these mites. Were it not for several spectacular traffic accidents in 2010 and 2011, we might not have learned about the lucrative business — also started in the 1990’s — of trucking bees in the Spring by the tens of millions, to vast monocultures of fruit trees or plants such as almonds or blueberries grown by agribusiness, from a series of massive industrial hives. Nor would we have considered that the overcrowded industrialized hives represent ideal breeding grounds for parasites. Just as antibiotics are fed to chickens living in overcrowded coops, chemicals are sprayed on bees to extend their survival in the abnormally crowded industrial hives.

Currently one industrial hive costs about $100, but its price in bee misery is inestimable. Examinations of CCD hives have shown most of the insects to be afflicted with multiple infections, as if the parasites are behaving opportunistically on a depressed immune system in the honeybees. Often single insects have been discovered to be simultaneously infected by mites, bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.

There is far too much financial interest for these medicines to be withdrawn.

New Study: Monsanto’s #1 Herbicide Directly Linked to Chronic Disease Spike

A new correlation study published in the Journal of Organic Systems has linked glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide, Roundup, to an enormous increase in chronic diseases across the United States.

Supporting countless studies before it, this new report is a detailed analysis proving an undeniable link between glyphosate-based herbicides and the rates of chronic disease all over the country.

Dr. Nancy Swanson and the President of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), Andre Leu, led the research team which proved – once again – that glyphosate and Roundup are lethal, even in small amounts.

The chemical is prevalently used on crops across the nation and world. Friends of the Earth Europe, says that more than 650,000 tonnes of glyphosate products were used over five years ago, with the amount being used increasing each year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question which has to be asked of our state and federal governments is this: how can a corporation be allowed to sell a product with impunity which sickens and ultimately kills?!?

Robin Williams Was on Drugs at the Time of His Death—Antidepressant Drugs

If news headlines were to be believed about the autopsy findings of beloved actor/comedian Robin Williams, who tragically committed suicide nearly two months ago, no drugs were found in his system at the time of his death, as evidenced by headlines from USA Today, NBC News, the BBC and others proclaiming “no alcohol or drugs” were found. These headlines couldn’t be more wrong.

Comet lander: Future of Philae probe 'uncertain'

The Philae lander has attempted to drill into the surface of comet 67/P, amid fears that its battery may die in hours.

Researchers at Esa say the instrument is being deployed to its maximum extent despite the risk of toppling the lander.

Scientists hope they will also be able to capture some samples for analysis in the robot's onboard laboratories.

If the battery dies the results may not make it back to Earth.

Vaccines and “herd immunity” nonsense

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

Hail to the group! The group is all!

The concept of herd immunity (protection for the population) is often used by vaccine addicts as a way to push guilt at people who don’t line up, with their children, like robots for their shots.

From the point of view of protecting people who are already vaccinated, herd immunity is flat-out absurd...

"Pure Arctic Outbreak": Staying Warm During the Polar Vortex

If you turn on the news or look at any type of social media today, the theme of the day is....Brrrrr....

That's because most of the United States is getting hit with the first storm of the winter - and it's a doozy.

If this storm is as bad as the experts are warning that it could be, the vulnerable power grid may go down due to high winds and heavy ice. What's more, in economically depressed places like Detroit, many residents have had their utilities shut off due to an inability to pay their bills. With temperatures in the negatives, people could quite literally freeze to death in their homes. You don't have to be a prepper to realize that secondary heating systems and a frigid weather plan could be vital to your survival.

Death Panels: Another Obamacare Architect Thinks We Should Die at Age 75

Right now everyone is talking about how one of the Obamacare architects, Jonathan Gruber, said it was the huge political advantage of a lack of transparency in the bill being written combined with the stupidity of the American voter that got the monstrosity that is Obamacare passed.

As reported on The Daily Sheeple, Gruber said quote:

"Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass."

Yeah. That happened. Even left-leaning gatekeeper Snopes had to admit it. Why? It's on videotape.

How Big Oil Plans to Win Ugly in New York

A PR firm well known for its hardball tactics in defense of Big Tobacco will deliver the keynote address at tonight’s Independent Oil and Gas Association of New York’s (IOGA-NY) annual conference in Buffalo. The same talk titled, “Big Green Radicals: Exposing Environmental Groups,” was presented at the Western Energy Alliance annual meeting in Colorado this summer. Richard Berman, president of the consulting firm Berman and Company, told the audience of oil and gas executives that they were engaged in “an endless war,” and warned that, “You can either win ugly or lose pretty.”

An anti-fracking rally in front of the New York State Assembly in Albany in 2013. Berman and Company’s strategy fails to recognize that long before celebrities were touring gas fields, local landowners, farmers, and activists had already started asking questions about the merits of fracking.
