Fast food marketing for children disproportionately targets certain communities

A newly published research study examining only marketing directed at children on the interior and exterior of fast food restaurants has found that black, as well as middle-income communities and rural areas, are disproportionately exposed to such marketing tactics.

Authored by Arizona State University researcher Punam Ohri-Vachaspati and her colleagues, the study is the first to examine the use of child-directed marketing on the interior and exterior of fast food restaurants and its relationship to demographics. It adds to a substantial body of literature on the effects of various marketing efforts on fast food consumption and their relationship to health outcomes in children...

Over 214,000 Doctors Opt Out of Obamacare Exchanges

Over 214,000 doctors won’t participate in the new plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA,) analysis of a new survey by Medical Group Management Association shows. That number of 214,524, estimated by American Action Forum, is through May 2014, but appears to be growing due to plans that force doctors to take on burdensome costs. It’s also about a quarter of the total number of 893,851 active professional physicians reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Definition of Medical Billing Fraud

Medical billing fraud is a big problem in the United States. It costs the American health care industry billions of dollars each year. The trickle-down effect is the insurer passing down the higher costs to the insured through elevated premiums and deductibles. This type of fraud, like many others, can be difficult to prove

Fraud has become the standard mode of business in the United States!

Always (Always!) Double-Check Your Medical Bills

This past November, my wife had to see a doctor at our local Urgent Care. Unfortunately, when the bill showed up the claim had been denied. The reason? Out of network. The problem? It wasn’t out of network! It’s supposed to be a $20 co-pay with the rest going to insurance. So… I called the Urgent Care billing office on December 15th. They confirmed that it should’ve been covered, and promised to re-submit the claim. Fast forward to this week…

We just got another bill from Urgent Care. Same deal — they want the full balance. This time, however, it seems that our insurance company decided to split the difference and apply it to our deductible instead of flat-out denying the claim, or paying it like they’re supposed to. When I called the Urgent Care billing office, they weren’t sure what went wrong, but promised to re-file the claim. Again.

Although Amazon isn’t releasing official numbers on units sold, the company did mention in its Q3 report today that it’s taking a $170 million charge on inventory commitments, and that the massive hit is largely due the Fire phone’s dismal sales. The company said it’s currently stuck with $83 million worth of unsold Fire phones. That’s a whole lot of phones sitting in warehouses, looking for good homes.

No one who has had dealings with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health can be surprised that its managers are systematically protecting nursing home operators at the expense of abused or neglected residents.

CDC whistleblower: also a player in the vaccine-mercury-autism fraud

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

Anyone who’s awake knows by now that William Thompson, CDC scientist and whistleblower, has admitted egregious fraud.

He and his colleagues, in a famous 2004 study, gave the MMR vaccine a free pass and pretended it had no connection to autism—when it did.

Here is another study on which Thompson was a co-author: “Thimerosal [mercury] exposure [from vaccines] in early life and neuropsychological outcomes 7-10 years later.” (J Pediatr Psychol, Jan-Feb 2012)

Obviously, this is a key piece of research, because a) mercury is known potent neurotoxin; b) parents of autistic children have been, for many years, telling anyone who would listen that their kids withdrew from the world after receiving a shot containing mercury; and c) the US government has been claiming, over and over, that mercury in vaccines has absolutely no connection to autism...

Dutch Judges Fed Up With Government Cannabis Policy

Synopsis:
A Dutch judge delivered a surprising verdict in a case concerning an owner of a cannabis distribution center ("coffeeshop"): guilty of possession of 100 kilograms marihuana and hashish but no punishment.
A few weeks ago, another judge ruled that 2 growers of marihuana were guilty without giving sanctions. http://mobiel.nu.nl/binnenland/3905054/rechter-geeft-twee-principiele-...

The judges demand that the Dutch government adjusts its front door/back door policies. Right now, the selling of small amounts of cannabis in special pubs is allowed, but possession is strictly limited to 500 grams in total for the owner of the shop. In other words, the front door of the shop is more or less legal while the back door is illegal, so the shop owners and producers of cannabis risk arrest at any time. Until the rules change, the judges refuse to take any kind of punitive measures against unlucky growers and owners.

A study published by Mayo Clinic found that almost 70% of Americans are on at least one pharmaceutical; antibiotics top the list, followed by antidepressants, and opioid pain killers. This is a problem in of itself, as it the United States has transformed into a pill-popping, medication-dependent nation. What’s worse is that antibiotics in particular are doled out in copious, unnecessary amounts, so much so that bacteria are developing major resistance to this conventional treatment. This is now a potential danger of antibiotics, and a serious grand-scale side effect of antibiotic use.

Dodging the Tuition Debt Bullet

Waking Times

In the US, a college education is so insanely unaffordable that only the wealthiest students from the wealthiest of families, or the ones fortunate to have been granted full scholarship, can afford to go to the school without racking up tens of thousands of dollars in debt. Some – for example PhDs and medical students – will enter the work force with the burden of a six-figure student loan debt. As a result of high tuition fees in the US, the student loan debt stands at about $1.2 trillion and is the second-highest form of consumer debt in the country. The US Institute for College Access and Success reports that two-thirds of today’s students will leave college in significant debt, estimated to average at $26,600.

Pro-GMO Database: Monsanto is Most Common Funder of GMO Research

The partisan group has always incorrectly stated that the scientific literature shows that GMOs are safe. But with the release of GENERA, the group now boasts that “half of GMO research is independent,” and notes that this finding “should turn the heads of people who thought it was skewed to private, U.S.-based laboratories.”

My head is turning—at the partisan spin that Biofortified continually employs.

First, Biofortified draws its funding conclusion not on its analysis of all GMO research, but only the 400 studies currently available in the GENERA database.

Judeo-American imperium manipulates Canada into farcical ISIS quagmire

Like a blind mule,Canada has been led by the nose into nearly all of America’s militarist incursions in the Middle East and everywhere else the US imperium decides to plant its seed of destruction. Canadian troops, like their American and European counterparts, are essentially globalist cannon fodder, shipped halfway across the planet to fight unwinnable wars against bogus enemies manufactured in the propaganda caverns of the Pentagon.

On October 7 the Canadian parliament, effectively operating under the Stalinist dictatorship of Stephen Harper’s Neoconservative Party, voted to join the farcical US-led anti-ISIS campaign in Iraq and Syria.

wehatevonage.com

:My company has contracted vonage as our VOIP provider. Since this happened I have had nothing but problems. Often when I am speaking with anyone internal or external, it constantly, and I mean constantly goes blank during the conversation. So we can talk for a minute, it blanks out, and then comes back while me and the other party are saying "are you there". Its not a good way to conduct business and affects my ability to work with customers. I also constantly have problems calling international. If I'm not getting a fast busy, it is totally dead air and never completes the call. I also have this weird recording that comes on when I try to make a domestic call that says "we are calling your party, please stand by"...and about 60% of the time it comes back on and says "we could not reach your party, please call again later". UGH! I then have to pick up my cell phone and make the call which goes right thru.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have two Vonage lines here on Oahu, one of which my wife is heavily dependent on. Starting a couple weeks back, she started seeing a problem where calls would not go through. Today the problem was sop bad she had to try every single call two or three times. So I chatted with Vonage customer support, and spent almost an hour going through all the dog-and-pony tricks of resetting the local Vonage modem, unplugging this, cross connecting that, yadda yadda yadda even though it was clear that we had no trouble reaching Vonage, but Vonage was having trouble completing the calls. Finally I demanded to chat with a supervisor who admitted that there is a known issue with a new feature Vonage added some weeks back, "Comfort Calling", which has some voice messages to lull you into a daze during the very long time it takes for calls to get through the Vonage system. So why doesn't the customer service person in the chat START with that known issue instead of implying this is all somehow our fault? The supervisor downloaded a patch to our Vonage modem and now we can't make ANY outgoing calls. None. Zip. Nada. They promise they will fix it "soon."

Our Nation Depends on Restoring Product Liability

Sadly, we have seen a trend in recent decades for the government to protect corporations against the people, rather than protecting the people against corporations. Along with computers, other industries we are dependent on are being protected against product liability lawsuits, such as vaccine manufacturers, and other biotech corporations. This is a practice typically seen under fascist governments, and it never ends well.

The computers don't last. The software will not install. The aqueducts are leaking. The roads are cracking.

Rome is falling.

Off-the-grid texting device GoTenna attracts antisurveillance crowd

Daniel Levy, a Web developer living in the Puna District of Hawaii, lived through a 12-day blackout after a rather vicious hurricane earlier this summer. Many residents in his community were stuck powerless until the local utility company restored the grid, while some subsisted on solar energy. It was after that, Levy said, that he sought a solution and came upon GoTenna.

The gadget -- a small Bluetooth-enabled rod packed to the brim with modern radio innards -- lets you create your own private, secure communication network for sending messages without cell service using your smartphone. Though marketed toward outdoors and emergency situations like hiking and disaster relief, GoTenna is getting a boost from the cryptography community. Levy, whose neighborhood gets little to zero reliable cell service, happens to represent both. He's among the more than 25 percent of GoTenna preorder customers who paid for the product with the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.

Measles-mumps-rubella vaccination timing and autism among young african american boys: a reanalysis of CDC data

A significant number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder suffer a loss of previously-acquired skills, suggesting neurodegeneration or a type of progressive encephalopathy with an etiological basis occurring after birth. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectof the age at which children got their first Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine on autism incidence. This is a reanalysis of the data set, obtained from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), used for the Destefano et al. 2004 publication on the timing of the first MMR vaccine and autism diagnoses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the report by Brian Hooker which Translational Neurodegeneration has removed from their servers after the whistle was blown regarding the CDC's cover-up of the link between vaccines and autism.

Attorney General Eric Holder Paid No Attention to Bank Fraud: “Wall Street Wasn’t Even On His Radar”

Attorney General Eric Holder’s statements that prosecuting Wall Street fraud would hurt the economy is exactly backwards: the experts say that failing to prosecute fraud is dooming our economy.

But prosecuting fraud was never on Holder’s radar.

In reality, Holder laid the groundwork for the “too big to jail” approach in 1999.

And Holder and his head of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division were partners at a law firm which used to represent the big banks, Fannie and Freddie, and which wrote the legal opinion which allowed the creation of the cancerous MERS scam … which was at the heart of the foreclosure crisis.

Indeed, Wall Street was Holder’s priority … specifically, protecting Wall Street criminals and prosecuting whistleblowers.

Baby bust: US fertility rates hit all-time lows

The Great Recession has more women, especially Latinas, postponing childbirth?

The impact of the U.S. recession will reverberate for generations to come as women — both Anglos and Hispanics — continue to postpone having children.

For the second year in a row, deaths of non-Hispanic whites outnumbered births from July 1, 2012, to July 1, 2013, according to population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

“These are the only two years in U.S. history when more non-Hispanic whites died than were born,” said Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer at the University of New Hampshire’s Carsey Institute. Births have been fewer for some time, “but the decline since the onset of the Great Recession has been precipitous.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I really feel for these women, but I cannot blame them one bit for postponing their pregnancies; but there is a finite limit for gals in terms of time as to how long they can postpone their pregnancies, and still deliver a healthy baby.

I hope they are in contact with their health care professionals (if they have them) about how long they can reasonably postpone having kids, if they do want to have a family.

Illinois Bans Cosmetics Containing Microbeads

Illinois has become the first American state to ban cosmetics containing microplastics. The move has been taken in response to growing concern over the marine damage caused by plastic waste, which a report published recently by the U.N. Environment Programme puts at $13 billion or more annually.

Among the products that will be removed from Illinois shelves are several brands of exfoliating face wash. While natural versions of this popular product use the likes of oatmeal or ground kernels as an exfoliant, cheap commercial varieties use nonbiodegradable plastic beads, known as microbeads. One average-sized tube can hold thousands of them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, when you are using personal products, try to find the most natural, with the fewest ingredients, you can.

You might want to patronize a store featuring the highest number of pure, natural products you can find.

Is it going to be more expensive than a trip to the local drug store? Yes. But will it be better, in the long run, for both you and the environment? Absolutely.

Beware of fake 32gb micro sd card on ebay!!!!!!

Right now these are one of the hottest item counterfeitors like to make. It is sold as a 32gb micro sd card, but in fact they are about 2gb in storage and prgrammed to look like you have 32gb in storage, even if you put it in a phone or use a micro sd reader the phone or computer when you check the capacity you will see that you have 32gb in storage, thats where they get you. After you put in more than 2 gb of data on the fake 32gb card it will start to delete or corrupt old data and you will in fact LOSE valuable data if you dont watch out for this. If the 32gb you bought for so cheap and wonder why, now you know. One way to check if your 32gb card is good is load data onto it (stuff thats not important) around 3 or 4 gb, and then check on the 32gb card that all the files are there. that is the easiest way to check. there are alot of these floating around ebay, Alot of times sellers arent even aware of this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I buy microSD cards on eBay because there are no stores that sell the high-capacity ones here on Oahu. I use them for extra data backups, but recently got burned with the 64Gb and 128Gb microSDs I bought. I use h2testw to test the media and suggest you all start doing the same. Apparently, this has become a major problem, with fraudulent memories or factory rejects that are stolen and packaged for sale. Overall I have had great luck with eBay, but apparently they are for the most part turning a blind eye to this problem.

All of the bad microSD cards I bought from eBay came in the following package, notable for the absence of a manufacturer's name!

Prop 37 - Argentina's Roundup Human Tragedy

Argentina has become a giant experiment in farming genetically modified (GM) Roundup Ready (RR) soy, engineered to be tolerant to Roundup, Monsanto’s formulation of the herbicide glyphosate. The Argentine government, eager to pull the country out of a deep economic recession in the 1990s, restructured its economy around GM soy grown for export, most of which goes to feed livestock in Europe. In 2009, GM soy was planted on 19 million hectares - over half of Argentina’s cultivated land - and sprayed with 200 million litres of glyphosate herbicide [1]. Spraying is often carried out from the air, causing problems of drift.

Founder plans to give up Oaksterdam after raid

It’s a risk he has lived with for many years, first as an underground pot grower and then as the leader of a serious legalization effort, which drew vigorous opposition from the federal government.

“I never wanted to be the quote unquote leader of the legalization movement,” he said in a telephone interview. “I saw myself as just one small soldier in a big war. But I look at it as a battlefield promotion.”

He said the Government should consider a pilot project for a town in Ireland where lithium salts could be added to the water in very small doses and examine the results.” He said there was already strong precedent for governments intervening in the operation of public water supply for health benefits by adding fluoride.

GM Enviro-Pig Won't Go To Market; On To Humanely Solving an Environmental Problem

Heather Callaghan
Activist Post

Last year, the media was buzzing about the possibility of Enviro-pig entering the American and Canadian food markets.

The way our regulatory agencies work is to keep pending approvals for genetically modified animals on file, in secret, until a decision determines if it's suddenly in the stores unlabeled, or no, not yet.

Enviro-pig is a creation from Canada's University of Guelph scientists and hog industry Ontario Pork. Birthed in 1999, with 10 generations since. The DNA of Yorkshire pigs were spliced with DNA from e.coli for phosphorous digestion and mice DNA to promote the e.coli gene. The pigs' make-up was changed to allow the enzyme phytase in their saliva to cut the phosphorous in their manure by about 30 percent.

Even worse than SOPA: New CISPA cybersecurity bill will censor the Web

H.R. 3523, a piece of legislation dubbed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (or CISPA for short), has been created under the guise of being a necessary implement in America’s war against cyberattacks. But the vague verbiage contained within the pages of the paper could allow Congress to circumvent existing exemptions to online privacy laws and essentially monitor, censor and stop any online communication that it considers disruptive to the government or private parties. Critics have already come after CISPA for the capabilities that it will give to seemingly any federal entity that claims it is threatened by online interactions, but unlike the Stop Online Privacy Act and the Protect IP Acts that were discarded on the Capitol Building floor after incredibly successful online campaigns to crush them, widespread recognition of what the latest would-be law will do has yet to surface to the same degree.

Forget Asteroids and Volcanoes: Chemically Induced Infertility Threatens Human Race

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

With the increase in solar flares and expert warnings over the threat of asteroids, volcanoes, and earthquakes, it’s understandable to be concerned about the future of the earth and mankind alike.

What many experts and publications are forgetting, however, is that these disasters may actually be less threatening than the harm being placed on our own bodies.

Known by some as the ‘infertility timebomb’, men are increasingly becoming infertile at an astounding rate that worries many scientists. We can’t control the trajectory of asteroids, but we can control what we put into our bodies...

European Commission Blames Social Networks For ACTA Failure; Worried About Its Imminent Directive On Copyright Enforcement

He noted that opposition had increased in the run-up to January’s planned vote in the US Congress on two legislative initiatives -- the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) -- aimed at increasing the protection of intellectual property rights on the Internet; in the end the vote had not been held, following a hostile campaign by social networks and the loss of White House support.
It's interesting to see De Gucht linking the growing hostility to ACTA with the storm generated by SOPA/PIPA, and giving the credit for stopping those US bills to a "hostile campaign" waged by social networks. You can tell this really worries him, because he says something similar about social networks and ACTA immediately afterwards:

Beekeepers Want Government to Pull Bayer's Pesticide "Poncho" for Causing Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)

Beekeepers and environmentalists Wednesday called on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to remove a pesticide that could be linked to colony collapse disorder from the market and to issue an order to stop its use.

The request to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson from the American Beekeeping Federation, headed by Florida beekeeper Dave Mendes, and five other groups follows the leak of a Nov. 2 EPA memo about the product.

The insecticide sold under the brand name Poncho has an active ingredient called clothianidin. Bayer CropScience AG obtained conditional EPA registration for the product in 2003. The leaked memo identified a study that is the basis for the registration as unsound, said Florida beekeeper Dave Hackenberg, who was checking hives Wednesday in Fort Meade.

Myths and Facts: Study Verifies That There Is No Value In Any Flu Vaccine - Five Busted Myths about Vaccines

A remarkable study published in the Cochrane Libary found no evidence of benefit for influenza vaccinations and also noted that the vast majority of trials were inadequate.

The authors stated that the only ones showing benefit were industry-funded. They also pointed out that the industry-funded studies were more likely to be published in the most prestigious journals...and one more thing: They found cases of severe harm caused by the vaccines, in spite of inadequate reporting of adverse effects.

The study, "Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults", is damning of the entire pharmaceutical industry and its minions, the drug testing industry and the medical system that relies on them.

The authors found that vaccines administered parenterally, that is, outside the digestive tract, usually meaning by injection. reduced influenza-like symptoms by 4%. They found no evidence that vaccination prevents viral transmission! (There goes the whole herd immunity argument!) They also found no evidence that they prevent complications, either.

We implement a Monte Carlo simulation using as input what is known about the x-ray spectra used for imaging, device specifications and available images to estimate penetration and exposure to the body from the x-ray beam, and sensitivity to dangerous contraband materials. We show that the body is exposed throughout to the incident x-rays, and that although images can be made at the exposure levels claimed (under 100 nanoGrey per view), detection of contraband can be foiled in these systems.

Top Military Brass Working With BP to Promote Gulf Seafood

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus is pushing all members of America's armed service to buy and eat as much seafood as possible.

This is as sinister as it gets! BP has destroyed the gulf and is now working with the U.S. military to get it in the homes of American troops (already poisoned by continued exposure to depleted uranium) throughout the country! Multiple scientists have declared gulf seafood toxic and for good reason. Over 2 million gallons of toxic dispersant has been sprayed in and around the gulf. The facts are so heavily documented that there is no logical way that any literate human being not pushing an agenda could believe otherwise.

To top it off, Ewell Smith, executive director of the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board, is pushing for this toxic cocktail to be served in in school lunch programs nationwide!

“He expressed what we wanted to hear; he is in favor of the federal government buying seafood from the Gulf,” said Smith, who said he would like to see Gulf seafood as the choice throughout the public domain, “whether it’s the military or prison systems or school systems.”

S 510 Food Safety bill is still alive and may unleash a new army of FDA agents

(NaturalNews) The U.S. government wants to know where your greenhouse is. Under Senate Bill 510 -- which is now back in the hands of the U.S. Senate after the House hid an amendment in an appropriations bill and passed it last night -- American food producers would be required to register their facilities with the U.S. government. The feds, it seems, want a database of food growers so they know who to target for surprise inspections (show me your papers!).

"The registration shall contain an assurance that the Secretary will be permitted to inspect such facility at the times and in the manner permitted by this Act."

What this language shows is that the point of registration is so that government agents can conduct surprise inspections of food facilities. At least 4,000 new FDA agents will need to be hired if this bill becomes law, greatly expanding the FDA's agent presence in much the same way the TSA expanded over the last few years.

So essentially what we have here is a food tyranny bill that would hand a group of un-elected bureaucrats who answer to no one the power to control virtually the entire U.S. food supply.

Remember $4 gasoline? Oil speculators are back

WASHINGTON — Despite weak demand in the U.S. and Europe, oil prices climbed this week to near $90 a barrel and gasoline prices have passed $3 a gallon on the West Coast and parts of the Northeast.

Why? If demand is down and supplies are plentiful — and they are — why would prices be going up?

---Comment---

Oil speculation might be one aspect that is causing oil prices to climb, but there are other factors to consider as well. Refinery slow down, very harsh winter season, and dollar devaluation by the Federal Reserve Bank, would be prime causes of gasoline price increases. - kdtroxel

Assange Prosecution: A Brazen Effort to Kill Alternative Media

Now that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is in custody, we can expect the U.S. government to request his extradition and prosecute the Australian for espionage. “Any such proceedings would set up a test of whether the First Amendment’s protection for a free press extends to a website with a worldwide audience,” notes McClatchy today.

In 1917 the United States enacted the Espionage Act, a law that has made it a crime to “willfully communicate” secret government information that could expose national secrets held by officialdom. Since the law was passed, however, the government has avoided prosecuting journalists for publishing classified information.

The "Hi Tech" Corporate Police State: "Reengineering" the Internet ... for Persistent Surveillance

The secret world of "cyber situational awareness" is a spymaster's wet dream, made all the more alluring by the advent of ultra high speed computing and the near infinite storage capacity afforded by massive server farms and the ubiquitous "cloud."

Lost in the debate surrounding privacy invasion and data mining however, is the key role that internet service providers (ISPs) play as intermediaries and gatekeepers. From their perch, ISPs peer deeply into and collect and analyze the online communications of tens of millions of users simultaneously, in real-time.

Concerted efforts to eliminate online anonymity, in managed democracies and authoritarian regimes alike, are greatly enhanced by the deployment of deep packet inspection (DPI) sensors and software on virtually all networks.

"To unpack this a little" they aver, "all data traffic that courses across the 'net is contained in individual packets that have header (i.e. addressing) information and payload (i.e. content) information. We can think of this as the address on a postcard and the written and visual content of a postcard."

All of which is there for the taking, "criminal evidence, ready for use in a trial," Cryptohippie chillingly informs.

Marijuana Cuts Tumor Growth by 50%

The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies.

They say this is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), inhibits EGF-induced growth and migration in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressing non-small cell lung cancer cell lines. Lung cancers that over-express EGFR are usually highly aggressive and resistant to chemotherapy.

THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.

Cap-and-Trade Market Spanning North America Weighed by States

California, New Mexico and 10 U.S. Northeastern states may try to create a North American carbon market on their own now that President Barack Obama has given up on cap-and-trade legislation that stalled in Congress.

The emissions-trading system would be based on a planned carbon market in California, the most populous state, and an existing regional cap-and-trade program for power plants in the Northeast, according to state environmental officials. Three Canadian provinces have also shown interest in a cross-border carbon-trading system, the officials said.

“The key is to have as large and as liquid a market as possible,” John Yap, British Columbia’s climate-change minister, said in a telephone interview. Under cap-and-trade, the government creates a market for pollution rights by issuing a limited number of carbon-dioxide permits, which companies can buy and sell.

Of the six states in the Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord -- Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin -- Democrats lost the governor’s race or control of the legislature to Republicans in five, according to data from the National Conference of State Legislatures. Many Republicans in national and state politics have opposed cap-and- trade, which they say is an energy tax in disguise.

Feds Warrantlessly Tracking Americans’ Credit Cards in Real Time

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2010/12/realtime/

Federal law enforcement agencies have been tracking Americans in real-time using credit cards, loyalty cards and travel reservations without getting a court order, a new document released under a government sunshine request shows.

The document, obtained by security researcher Christopher Soghoian, explains how so-called “Hotwatch” orders allow for real-time tracking of individuals in a criminal investigation via credit card companies, rental car agencies, calling cards, and even grocery store loyalty programs. The revelation sheds a little more light on the Justice Department’s increasing power and willingness to surveil Americans with little to no judicial or Congressional oversight.

“Unconstitutional” food bill driven by Big Food lobby dollars

Rady Ananda, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

While over 200 organizations lobbied on the Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510), no one seemed to notice an unconstitutional section in the bill until after it passed on Tuesday.

That day, Roll Call advised that the bill contained a provision, Sec. 107, allowing the Senate to raise revenues. This violates Article I, Section 7, of the U.S. Constitution, granting that power exclusively to the House. S.510 opponents now celebrate the House’s use of the “blue slip process” to return the bill to the Senate.

Fed wants to strip a key protection for homeowners

Americans continue to lose their homes in record numbers, the Federal Reserve is considering making it much harder for homeowners to stop foreclosures and escape predatory home loans with onerous terms.

The Fed's proposal to amend a 42-year-old provision of the federal Truth in Lending Act has angered labor, civil rights and consumer advocacy groups along with a slew of foreclosure defense attorneys.

Since 1968, the Truth in Lending Act has given homeowners the right to cancel, or rescind illegal loans for up to three years after the transaction was completed if the buyer wasn't provided with proper disclosures at the time of closing.

Attorneys at AARP have used the rescission clause for decades to protect older homeowners stuck in predatory loans with costly terms. The provision is also helping struggling homeowners to fight a wave of foreclosure cases in which faulty and sometimes-fraudulent disclosures were used.

The violations must be of a material nature to invalidate a loan under the extended-rescission clause. To do so, homeowners — usually those facing financial problems or foreclosure — hire an attorney to scour their mortgage documents for possible violations regarding the actual cost of the loan or payment terms.

TSA turns off naked body scanners to avoid opt-out day protests

Anticipating a nationwide grassroots surge of protests against naked body scanners and aggressive pat-downs, the TSA simply turned off its naked body scanners on Wednesday and let air travelers walk right through security checkpoints without being X-rayed or molested.

All across the country, air travelers are reporting that the TSA simply deactivated the naked body scanners and let people go right through without a scan. "Backscatter scanners are off. No scan. No patdown." reported a traveler from the Seattle airport. "Backscatter machines aren't being used at LAX," reported another traveler. "They're all roped off."

As soon as the TV cameras leave, however, they can turn those machines right back on and start molesting people once again. This is classic behavior of police state tyrants: They present a calm, professional image to the media, but once the cameras leave, all of a sudden their hands are back down in your pants.

Top ten lies about Senate Bill 510, by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) The Food Safety Modernization Act looks like it's headed to become law. It's being hailed as a "breakthrough" achievement in food safety, and it would hand vast new powers and funding to the FDA so that it can clean up the food supply and protect all Americans from food-borne pathogens.

Here are the ten biggest lies that have been promoted about S.510 by the U.S. Congress, the food industry giants and the mainstream media:

Lie #1 - Most deaths from food poisoning are caused by fresh produce

Lie #2 - Under S.510, the FDA would only recall products it knows to be contaminated

Lie #3 - They didn't tell you that nearly 70% of grocery store chickens are contaminated with salmonella every day

Lie #4 - S.510 will exclude and protect small farmers

Lie #5 - The FDA needs more power to enforce food safety

Lie #6 - Fresh produce is contaminated because of a lack of paperwork

Lie #7 - The American people are dying in droves from unsafe fresh food

Lie #8 - The FDA just wants to make food "safer"

Lie #9 - Food smuggling is a huge problem in America

Lie #10 - S.510 will make America's food supply the safest in the world

Fed Names Recipients of $3.3 Trillion in Crisis Aid

The Federal Reserve, under orders from Congress, today named the counterparties of about 21,000 transactions from $3.3 trillion in aid provided to stem the worst financial panic since the Great Depression.

Bank of America Corp. and Wells Fargo & Co. were among the biggest borrowers from one program, the Term Auction Facility, with as much as $45 billion apiece. Some aid went to U.S. units of foreign institutions, including Switzerland’s UBS AG, France’s Societe Generale and Germany’s Dresdner Bank AG. The Fed posted the data on its website to comply with a provision in July’s Dodd-Frank law overhauling financial regulation.

The information, which also includes the amounts of transactions and interest rates charged, spans six loan programs as well as currency swaps with other central banks, purchases of mortgage-backed securities and the rescues of Bear Stearns Cos. and American International Group Inc.

It’s time to recognize the overwhelming evidence of unlawful and lie-based US Wars of Aggression, rigged-casino economics, and a complicit corporate media that echoes propaganda for our lying sacks of spin “leaders” who operate above and in contempt of US law.

It’s time to recognize “leadership” of both parties are the Left and Right arms of one oligarchic political body. The proper academic label for this government, not even close to a constitutional repubulic, is fascism.

The US government is run by dicts, as in dictatorship; doing whatever they dictate and unlimited by rule of law.

Industry bought Congressional votes to pass S. 510 food safety bill

Despite an incredible outpouring of public opposition to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) "Food Safety Modernization Act", or S. 510, the Senate voted 73 to 25 to pass the bill anyway. And data presented by Maplight.org, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization, shows that big industry groups and large food producers spent millions of dollars buying off Congressmen to garner support for it.

According to the site, Senators that ended up supporting the bill received nearly $10 million in political contributions from interest groups that also supported the bill. This amount was more than four times as much as groups opposed to the bill spent on overall contributions.

S.510 PASSES: THE SENATE EFFECTIVELY DECLARES ITSELF AN AGENT OF FOREIGN PRINCIPALS

As most of you know, S.510 the fake food safety bill which had nothing to do with food safety, passed the Senate this morning. This bill, which will go down in history as one of the greatest weaponless assaults on the States by the central government, is intended to knock the knees out from under what little is left of our economy.

Section 404 of the bill, forces the subjugation of the citizens of the States to unlawful trade agreements, international organization demands, and will reduce operating standards across the board for bio-piracy corporations in order to maximize their profits and to end as much competition in those markets as possible. These unlawful agreements and the mandates from such odious organizations as the World trade Organization, Codex Alimentarius committees, and other foreign principals have unlawfully usurped US laws and sovereignty, forfeiting our right to self determination and governance.

The bill, which expands a notoriously dysfunctional and incompetent agency, the FDA, is also intended to abrogate the rights of the citizens. The multiple constitutional violations in the bill went by unnoticed by members of the Senate; probably because the majority of them never even read the bill and had no idea what was in it. These violations of rights also seemed to by pass the mental faculties of several high profile front groups and individuals.

TSA Agent Claims Videotaping Against the “Rules” Declares TSA Above The Law

The TSA has now been caught denying American citizens the right to videotape their encounters with airport security. It is very clear that TSA believes they are 100% above the law.

Apparently, the TSA goon was not even aware of his own rules. No where in TSA regulations does it say that TSA agents have the right to deny American citizens their right to film in a public setting.

See, the TSA needs to ban cameras in airports so that citizen journalists can no longer document their molestation at the hands of an agency that should have no legal authority to supersede the Constitution.

Not only did the agents declare videotaping illegal, they went as far as to claim that TSA is above the law!

The U.S. army is to begin using a futuristic rifle that fires radio-controlled 'smart' bullets in Afghanistan for the first time, it has emerged.

The XM25 rifle uses bullets that be programmed to explode when they have travelled a set distance, allowing enemies to be targeted no matter where they are hiding.

The rifle also has a range of 2,300 feet making it possible to hit target which are well out of the reach of conventional rifles.

The XM25 is being developed specially for the U.S. army and will be deployed with troops from later this month, it was revealed today.

Stop S.510, the fake food safety bill, at your state line

"S..510 calls for the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, to contact the governors of each state to determine which agencies within the state will contract on behalf of the state to administer the USDA/FDA federal plans for seizing control of food production and supply, handing it over to multi-national corporations and setting into motion the eradication of family and independent farms and ranches. These new “business plans” (which is what S.510 is, a business plan), require contracting with state agencies accompanied of course, by bags of USDA bribery money called “cooperative funding”.

The federal government, including Senator Reid, who is yet again pushing for a vote on S.510, the fake food safety bill, know they cannot pass any enforceable law on the federal level dealing with agriculture; it is not in the enumerated powers, and will exist only as a non-positive code and title. Because these “laws” are outside the scope of the federal government, they cannot be used to criminalize what was other wise your right to do without their interference. Non-positive code and title, in this case Title 7 USC, cannot be revised, codified and assigned a public law number as these corporate codes are outside the authority of the federal government. Should S.510 pass, it is null and void on its face, as if it never existed, but not one of your Senators or Representatives will tell you this.

It is expected, that failure to pass this assault on private agriculture and the intent to export as much of the US food supply as possible, President Obama will incrementally implement the provisions of S.510 using Executive Orders and using the Food Czar’s office to issue edicts and mandates that we, as citizens of the sovereign states will be told, we must comply with. No hell we don’t have to comply.

Too many Americans, and their leaders as well, haven’t got an accurate sense of the real world.

US Government seizure of the internet has begun; DHS takes over 76 websites

As part of a new expansion of government power over information, the Department of Homeland Security has begun seizing and shutting down internet websites (web domains) without due process or a proper trial. DHS simply seizes web domains that it wants to and posts an ominous "Department of Justice" logo on the web site.

Over 75 websites were seized and shut down last week, and there is no indication that the government will stop such efforts. Right now, their focus is websites that they claim "violate copyrights," yet the torrent-finder.com website that was seized by DHS contained no copyrighted content whatsoever. It was merely a search engine website that linked to destinations where people could access copyrighted content. Google also links to copyrighted content -- does that mean the feds will soon seize Google, too?

I know this because I am an American, and I escaped from the prison you call home.

Farmers, slow food activists, natural food growers and distributors have all condemned the federal government seizing control of how food is grown and sold. Yet, every day, in corporate and first tier “alternative” media sites, support for the bill is promoted. Here’s why you shouldn’t fall for the psyops . . .

The Nation called out on attempt to smear John Tyner (don't touch my junk) as a right-wing tool

The ACLU, always fighting to protect our Constitutional Rights were right in the middle of the battle and it was one of the few victories we had against the Bush administration's march toward totalitarianism that court challenges managed to keep them out of our airports, until last year.

The ACLU and its members have now, apparently, become 'rightwing trolls' 'astro-turfers' for the Koch brothers, or whatever other smears that are coming from, incredibly, the 'left'!

That the Nation would sink to this level of yellow journalism, worthy of Fox News, almost makes me lose hope that there is anyone in this country, left or right, who actually cares about PRINCIPLES. Is it all about party loyalty after all?

Monsanto Says it's the "Right Time" for GMO Wheat

Editor's Note: Problem = wheat shortages due to extreme weather and speculation driving commodity prices; Reaction = global starvation and outrage; Solution = Drought-resistant GMO wheat seed from Monsanto.

Monsanto Co., the world’s largest producer of genetically modified seed, backed off commercialization of “Roundup Ready” wheat several years ago, amid concerns it could hurt the U.S. wheat market. But earlier this month, the firm said it's the "right time" to pursue development of drought-resistant and high-yielding wheat.

7 Mega-Cartels That Run the World

Activist Post

Think we have a free market? Think again. Think it was free market capitalism that collapsed the financial system? Think again.

What America has, and what we've had for a long time, is Cartelism. It is becoming increasingly evident that every industry has been infected by "Too-Big-to-Fail" consolidation that has resulted in a near-picture-perfect oligarchy -- a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small segment of society distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, or military control (Wiki).

Big victory against Monsanto's rBGH treatment for dairy cows.

Now, here's the BIG news. The court challenged the FDA's finding that there is "no measurable compositional difference" between milk from rbGH-treated cows and milk from untreated cows. According to those who have worked on this issue for nearly two decades now (maybe more), the FDA's claim that there was no compositional difference between milk from rbGH-treated and untreated cows was THE MAJOR roadblock to any good regulation. And the court finally struck it down, citing three reasons why the milk differs: 1. Increased levels of the hormone IGF-1, 2. A period of milk with lower nutritional quality during each lactation, and 3. Increased somatic cell counts (i.e. more pus in the milk).

Below, you will find the exact language of the court's ruling, as well as testimony submitted to the FDA's Veterinary Medicine Advisory Committee all the way back in 1993 by Michael Hansen, Senior Scientist at Consumers' Union. Amazing how it only took 17 years to get the truth legally recognized.

Its no longer a conspiracy theory people.Time to wake up & fast.We can stop this if we stand up & be counted.

Jim Corr on Irish radio show The Last Word with Matt Cooper, on Today FM, talking about The Lisbon Treaty & The New World Order. On the 29th of May 2008. The Documentary Jim mentions at the end is 911 Mysteries.

The protection of national sovereignty is crucial; not for patriotic, nationalistic OR xenophobic reasons but because this is where the battle lines have been drawn; between an elite intent on total control, and the masses of people who should have the right to govern their own lives.

Copyright infringement bill could bring the FBI to your intranet

A senator from Oregon has threatened to block a copyright enforcement bill that would give U.S. law enforcement the right to shut down Web sites without trial or defense if it finds the central reason for the site is to distribute copyrighted information illegally.

Ron Wyden, (D-Ore.) calls the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act, or COICA bill the "wrong medicine" for copyright infringement, partially because it includes enforcement measures like a sledge hammer, when ice tongs are more appropriate.

New Food Crisis Looms

The world experienced a major food crisis in 2008 that led to civil and political unrest from Bangladesh to Haiti and added millions more to those suffering from malnutrition. Though prices have dropped somewhat, some analysts say the crisis never totally ended. With prices rising dramatically in 2010, the world could be on the brink of a new crisis.

UCSF professors raise safety concerns about backscatter x-ray scanners.

Unlike a medical X-ray, the TSA X-ray machines are a sci-fi fan's dream: they are lower-energy beams that can only penetrate clothing and the topmost layers of skin. This provides TSA agents with a view that would expose any explosives concealed by clothing. But according to the UCSF professors, the low-energy rays do a "Compton scatter" off tissue layers just under the skin, rather than the bone, possibly exposing some vital areas and leaving the tissues at risk of mutation.

When an X-ray Compton scatters, it doesn't shift an electron to a higher energy level; instead, it hits the electron hard enough to dislodge it from its atom. The authors note that this process is "likely breaking bonds," which could cause mutations in cells and raise the risk of cancer.

Because the X-rays only make it just under the skin's surface, the total volume of tissue responsible for absorbing the radiation is fairly small. The professors point out that many body parts that are particularly susceptible to cancer are just under the surface, such as breast tissue and testicles. They are also concerned with those over 65, as well as children, being exposed to the X-rays.

Tester Amendment to food ‘safety’ bill puts lipstick on a pig

Rady Ananda, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

The voice of controlled opposition wants Americans to believe that the Tester Amendment to S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, elevates the bill to something we should adopt. The Tester Amendment puts a bandaid on a head wound. It does not stop the most lethal agency in American history from seizing control of the food supply from farm to fork.

Even though Big Ag now opposes S 510, we should continue to oppose the bill, as it amounts to federal assault on food freedom . . .
