Big Pharma looks to capitalize on success of vitamin D by turning it into a 'drug' for kidney disease

It can never be stressed enough: only an FDA-approved drug can cure or treat disease. At least, that's what the law says. It took them a while to figure out, but now they will patent vitamin D for distribution for profit at pharmaceutical prices.

As Codex Alimentarius is incrementally implemented, more and more of your vitamins and supplements will be declared drugs, and you will need a prescription for them. And even then, except for fluoride of course, most of those vitamins and supplements will be in doses so inadequate they're not even worth taking. This leaves you with but one choice: cultivate your own vitamins, naturally. Learn which fruits and vegetables give you the vitamins your body needs, and grow them organically. For Vitamin D, don't fear the sun. No matter how bad they tell you it is for you.

    Natural News -

    With an incredible success rate for vitamin D in treating a myriad of health conditions, it is no wonder that some drug companies are looking for new ways to capitalize on this natural, inexpensive nutrient.

    Biopharmaceutical giant Rockwell Medical recently announced that it has acquired a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for a generic, injectable form of vitamin D called Calcitriol, that it openly refers to as a "drug."

    Marketed under several brand names including Rocaltrol (Roche), Calcijex (Abbott), and Decostriol (Mibe, Jesalis), Calcitriol is really nothing more than vitamin D3, or 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol, that has been placed in a syringe with sterile fluids and other additives. And yet Rockwell Medical, as well as various medical information sources, refer to Calicitriol as a "drug," which is why Rockwell Medical obtained an ANDA in the first place.

If at First You Don't Get a Prison Sentence, Try, Try Again

Fire that Lee Greenwood back up. It just never gets old. And you probably think, who cares? He's a scumbag child porn freak. And you thought the same thing about the Patriot (sic) Act. Who cares if you're not a terrorist? Then they started using it in drug cases. Then against anti-war activists. And then we find out the NSA has a secret interpretation of the Patriot (sic) Act, one even more lose and vague than the original. Who knows who the victims are now? People who opposed Obamacare? Ron Paul supporters? You know..."terrorists".

Now all they have to do is leave it to the states to prosecute, so they get two shots at the suspect if the system doesn't uhhh work the way it's supposed to. The Soviets would be very proud.

    Reason Magazine -

    Two years ago Steven D. Ballinger of Collinsville, Illinois, was sentenced to two and a half years of probation in state court after he pleaded guilty to sexual abuse and child pornography charges stemming from his videotaped encounter with a 12-year-old girl in July 2006, when he was 26. Last Friday he was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the same crime, this time in federal court. A federal prosecutor explained that U.S. Attorney Steve Wigginton was "very offended by what he perceived as an extremely lenient sentence for this type of crime."

    While Wigginton's reaction is understandable, do we want to let prosecutors try a defendant again whenever they think he got off too lightly the first time around? Isn't that sort of serial prosecution barred by the Fifth Amendment's Double Jeopardy Clause? Not, according to the Supreme Court, if it involves two different levels of government. According to the "dual sovereignty" doctrine, even though Ballinger pleaded guilty to the same crime (producing child pornography) both times, the fact that it was a state offense the first time and a federal offense the second time means the Double Jeopardy Clause does not apply. In fact, even if Ballinger had been acquitted in state court he still could have been convicted in federal court. Or if he had received a 30-year sentence in state court, he could have received another 30-year sentence in federal court.

Nasa warns solar flares from 'huge space storm' will cause devastation

I've been focusing a lot on economic apocalypse lately. A lot of people are also watching space. Particularly our sun. Ironically, 2012 also happens to be an important year in terms of solar activity. Prepare for all eventualities.

    London Telegraph -

    National power grids could overheat and air travel severely disrupted while electronic items, navigation devices and major satellites could stop working after the Sun reaches its maximum power in a few years.

    Senior space agency scientists believe the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

    In a new warning, Nasa said the super storm would hit like “a bolt of lightning” and could cause catastrophic consequences for the world’s health, emergency services and national security unless precautions are taken.

    Scientists believe it could damage everything from emergency services’ systems, hospital equipment, banking systems and air traffic control devices, through to “everyday” items such as home computers, iPods and Sat Navs.

Park service to thin out Yosemite's growing crowds -- of trees

Guess they're not really worried about their carbon footprints. Let's cut down all the carbon dioxide-sucking trees so people can see the scenic vistas. And while the government - the real environmental criminals we insanely look to to protect the environment - is cutting down the trees that supposedly could help reduce global warming, they'll punish you for your supposed carbon footprint, triple your energy bills, and put you out on the street.

    Los Angeles Times -

    Thousands of younger pines and cedars will be cut down this fall to restore many of the park's original scenic vistas that in previous decades were managed by natural and controlled fires.

    The granite walls of the Yosemite Valley are illuminated by stars and the moon on a clear winter night. The stand of evergreens at the base of the cliff would obscure such a view for most drivers and visitors.

    National parks tend to be a tree hugger's paradise. Layers of federal laws, strict park service rules and even the disapproving scowls from some visitors prohibit so much as driving a nail into a tree, much less cutting one down.

    But it's getting a bit crowded in Yosemite, where more than a hundred years of prompt firefighting have allowed towering pines and cedars to clog the park's meadows and valleys. These days, you can barely see the granite for the trees.

    That's about to change. Yosemite National Park officials say thousands of trees will be felled to preserve the iconic views of the park's waterfalls and the craggy faces of El Capitan and Half Dome.

Police inquiry reveals violations in arrest, beating of videographer

I'm proud to be an Amurr'can...where at least I know I'm *cough...hack...spit...*

What did they do to this slob of a cop? They sent him on paid vacation.

    Las Vegas Revue Journal -

    A Las Vegas police officer under investigation for the videotaped beating of a man in March violated several Metropolitan Police Department policies, an internal investigation found.

    Mitchell Crooks' complaint about officer Derek Colling's excessive force was sustained, Deputy Chief Gary Schofield said Friday.

    The specific policy violations will not be released until the case is finalized.

    Crooks, 36, received a letter from the Internal Affairs Bureau notifying him of the findings earlier this week.

    He said he was pleasantly surprised.

    "It seems like they're saying he was guilty, which is what I've been saying," Crooks said. "I really hope he gets fired."

    Colling has been on paid suspension since April 1.

Spending Has Collapsed, the Economy Is Next

At this point, there are only two factors to consider: will the economy continue its paced, gradual decline, or will it fall off a cliff and collapse suddenly and violently. That's about the only factor I can't predict, along with what, exactly, the government reaction will be once total collapse is realized.

    SHTF Plan -

    We’ve been warning about it since the beginning of this crisis – that consumers are simply not interested in spending money they don’t have. In the first quarter of 2011 the government attempted to convince us that the economy was growing at a slow, but steady, rate of 1.8%. This was used as evidence the economic recovery had taken hold.

    President Obama and his administration specifically told us that a depression had been avoided:

    We can safely say that we are no longer facing the potential collapse of our financial system and we’ve avoided the depression many feared.

    President Barrack Obama – December 9, 2009

    But today’s growth domestic product revisions suggest otherwise.

    That 1.8% that convinced the average uninformed American economic activity had increased was nothing but a fabrication – a bold faced lie – and that’s official. The government revised that number to 0.4% – a significant difference. They were only off by about 75%.

    Today, the government released it’s second quarter GDP numbers, and as was predicted in many alternative media circles, it’s a clear indication that things are turning for the worse. Karl Denninger weighs in:

    Sorry guys, the clock has rung. It’s not ringing any more, it has rung and the spring-powered alarm has run out.

    There is no recovery to speak of.

    Four years into this the policies of the government and Fed have failed.

    It gets worse:

    “The price index for gross domestic purchases, which measures prices paid by U.S. residents, increased 3.2 percent in the second quarter, compared with an increase of 4.0 percent in the first Excluding food and energy prices, the price index for gross domestic purchases increased 2.6 percent in the second quarter, compared with an increase of 2.4 percent in the first.”
    (source: US Dept. of Commerce)

    Your standard of living is being shredded.

    “Real personal consumption expenditures increased 0.1 percent in the second quarter, comparedwith an increase of 2.1 percent in the first.”
    (source: US Dept. of Commerce)

    Spending has effectively collapsed.

    This puts into stark relief the reality of the government deficit spending – it is doing nothing more than covering up an economic Depression, and the so-called “exit plan” – that private consumption, investment and borrowing will “take the baton back” is not working.

'Growth Recession' Latest Bad News for Faltering US Economy

The newest term to the Newspeak dictionary: Growth Recession. Used to be that depression was the only economic term for a negative GDP. They didn't like that, so they started calling it a know, for those times when the economy is depressed but not depressed enough to call it a depression. It makes you feel better. Through all this, always keep in mind that over 40% of the GDP is government spending, which is not a domestic product. It's wealth redistribution. And even with all the government spending, there's barely a pulse.

    CNBC -

    In addition to all the other ignominy heaped upon the US economy comes the latest insult Friday—confirmation of a “growth recession” that foretells a long, ugly road ahead.

    “Growth recession” is a term that means the economy actually is growing but not at a fast enough pace to head off rising unemployment, which is at 9.2 percent and trending higher.

    The term was unleashed Friday by Deutsche Bank economist Joseph LaVorgna, who said the government’s latest reading on the economy showing just a 1.3 percent gain in gross domestic product in the second quarter is ominous in more ways than one.

    “The disappointing Q2 GDP results and downward revisions to the prior three quarters lead us to believe that this (growth recession) indeed is the case,” LaVorgna wrote in an analysis.

Layoffs May Worsen if Economic Growth Doesn't Pick Up

You might as well say something like, the sky may turn blue once the sun rises. Because as sure as the sun rises every day, economic growth will not pick up. How can it?

A service sector economy is completely unsustainable, because it doesn't create wealth. If we don't produce anything, where does the money come from? All of our goods are created in China, and therefore that's where all our wealth is going. If it's not coming back in from somewhere, then sooner or later we run out of it. Common sense enough for you?

The only source at that point is the Fed's printing presses, which devalues the currency and causes prices to rise. Where does the money come from; where do the jobs come from, especially when Obama's jobs czar, Jeffery Immelt, who is also the CEO of General Electric, is shipping tens of thousands of jobs to China? When Hummers are now made in Brazil? Who can grow enough to hire people when there's no money left, or when the money they do have can't counter inflation? This is so fundamental.

    CNBC -

    Thousands of layoffs were announced in just the past week, and that trend could continue if economic growth does not start to pick up speed.

    Merck [MRK 34.13 -0.80 (-2.29%) ] on Friday became the latest company to announce a new round of job cuts, saying it would trim 13,000 employees from its work force of 91,000 by 2015. It joins HSBC, which is reported to be trimming 10,000 jobs from its global staff, and Borders, letting go another 10,700 workers, as it shuts down all of its retail stores.

    "These heavy cuts are a sign the economy is stalling. The GDP numbers back it up. This is a concrete result of what you get when you see GDP stalling under 2 percent, like we've seen for two consecutive quarters," said John Challenger, CEO of Challenger Gray and Christmas, which monitors layoffs.

    "It's across the board industries. It's not like the auto sector or something doing poorly. We are seeing pharmaceuticals; defense; retailers - in terms of Borders; and financial firms - in terms of Goldman..It's so very broad-based and it certainly poses a risk to the economy turning around, as people lose their jobs, and a lot of consumers who support these companies lose their jobs," he said.

It's all over but the shouting. Read it all.

Data Show Deeper US Recession, Sharper Slowdown

I've been telling people for a long time: if they admitted how bad things were, too many people might be tempted to go off the grid, which is the only way to shelter yourself from the storm in progress, the eye still approaching. Why does it matter to them that you stay dependent on the grid? Because attached to the grid, you're increasingly dependent, especially as the grid collapses, and you don't bite the hand that feeds. They need to rob you of all your wealth and means to sustain yourself, so that when the grid collapses they, the people who created the crisis, can throw their solution at you. And they won't shove it down your throat; you'll be so desperate at that point that you'll beg them to do something.


The "Great Recession" was even greater than previously thought, and the U.S. economy has skated uncomfortably close to a new one this year.

New data on Friday showed the 2007-2009 U.S. recession were much more severe than prior measures had found, with economic output declining a cumulative of 5.1 percent instead of 4.1 percent.

The report also showed the current slowdown began earlier and has been deeper than previously thought, with growth in the first quarter advancing at only a 0.4 percent annual pace.

The data indicated the economy began slowing in the fourth quarter of last year before high gasoline prices and supply chain disruptions from Japan's earthquake had hit, suggesting the weakness is more fundamental and less temporary than economists had believed.

GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, The Head Of Obama’s Jobs Council, Is Moving Jobs And Economic Infrastructure To China

It's not really difficult to figure out where things are going. On the one hand, you could learn economics. On the other, you can just look at what they're doing, blatantly, to destroy the economy. I don't know about you, but when the head of the president's Jobs Council is shipping jobs to China, that says to me that economic recovery and growth is not the agenda. Economic ruin and depression is. But that's just me.

    The Economic Collapse -

    Jeffrey Immelt, the head of Barack Obama's highly touted "Jobs Council", is moving even more GE infrastructure to China. GE makes more medical-imaging machines than anyone else in the world, and now GE has announced that it "is moving the headquarters of its 115-year-old X-ray business to Beijing". Apparently, this is all part of a "plan to invest about $2 billion across China" over the next few years. But moving core pieces of its business overseas is nothing new for GE. Under Immelt, GE has shipped tens of thousands of good jobs out of the United States. Perhaps GE should change its slogan to "Imagination At Work (In China)". If the very people that have been entrusted with solving the unemployment crisis are shipping jobs out of the country, what hope is there that things are going to turn around any time soon?

First Quarter Growth Revised: 0.4%

The original data was 1.9%. So what will the second quarter's 1.3% GDP be revised to next quarter? Now would be a good time to detach your ass from the couch and go prepare for an inflationary depression.

    CNBC -

    The U.S. economy grew less than expected in the second quarter as consumer spending barely rose, and growth braked sharply in the prior quarter, a government report showed on Friday.

    Growth in gross domestic product—a measure of all goods and services produced within U.S. borders—rose at a 1.3 percent annual rate, the Commerce Department said.

    First-quarter output was sharply revised down to a 0.4 percent pace from 1.9 percent.

    Economists had expected the economy to expand at a 1.8 percent rate in the second quarter.

    In addition, fourth-quarter growth was revised down to a 2.3 percent pace from 3.1 percent, indicating that the economy had already started slowing before the high gasoline prices and supply chain disruptions from Japan hit.

Ron Paul: Default is coming

Real Clear Politics -

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) explains why default by inflation is worse than default by not raising the debt ceiling.

Rep. Paul also talks about how the devaluing of the U.S. has led to record prices in gold bullion.

"Default is coming. The only argument that's going on now is how to default, not send the checks out or just print the money. In all countries our size, they always print the money," Paul said.

"They're going to raise the debt limit, and then they're going to print the money, and then they'll default by inflation, and that's much more dangerous than facing up to the facts of what's happening today."

White House threatens take extra-Constitutional action to avoid default

Bill Would Force Intel Chief to Renounce ‘Secret Patriot Act’

Wait...what's this? A secret Patriot Act?! Well I'm sure it's fine, because Americans would never illegally persecute their own people. And besides, who cares? You aren't doing anything wrong, are you?

    Wired -

    For months, two Senators have screamed bloody murder that the government holds a secret legal interpretation of the Patriot Act so broad that it amounts to a whole different law giving the feds massive domestic surveillance powers. Now, a measure by Sens. Ron Wyden and Mark Udall would force the U.S. intelligence chief, and by extension the entire intelligence community, to admit that they went too far in their Patriot Act interpretations — if they don’t find a way to wiggle out of it.

    The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence meets Thursday to prepare the annual bill authorizing the U.S. intelligence agency’s operations. During that “mark-up” process, Wyden and Udall will ask their colleagues to include a measure compelling the Director of National Intelligence and the Attorney General to produce a “detailed assessment of the problems posed by the reliance of government agencies” (.pdf) on “interpretations of domestic surveillance authorities that are inconsistent with the understanding of such authorities by the public.” Wyden’s staff provided Danger Room with a copy of the proposed amendment.

    Specifically, Attorney General Eric Holder and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper would have to produce “a plan for addressing such problems” with secret legal interpretations regarding the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and the Patriot Act, the government’s two most important domestic spying laws.

Ghost towns on the increase as rural America accounts for just 16% of population

The policy is to herd everyone into mega-cities and shut off the rest of the country, so they know exactly where you are and you can't leave the quarantine zones. And if you think that's a quack conspiracy theory, you obviously have never heard of Agenda 21.

    UK Daily Mail -

  • Migration will form a virtual mega-city stretching through Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Baltimore, Maryland and ending in the capital Washington D.C.
  • In 1910 72% of Americans lived in rural areas

    Vast swathes of the U.S. countryside are emptying and communities becoming ghost towns as rural America now only accounts for just 16 per cent of the population.

    The 2010 census results suggest that by 2050 many of these areas could shrink to virtually nothing as businesses collapse and schools close.

    This dramatic population implosion is the culmination of a century of migration to cities, as in 1910 the share of rural America was at 72 per cent.

Economy growing at slowest pace since recession

These numbers are fake. Always remember: at least 40% of the GDP is government spending:

    Yahoo News -

    The economy likely grew in the first half of the year at the slowest pace since the recession ended, and the second half isn't looking much better.

    Weak consumer spending, dismal hiring and cuts in government spending likely held back growth in the April-June quarter. The government will report on second-quarter growth on Friday.

    Economists forecast the economy expanded at an annual rate of 1.7 percent, according to a FactSet survey. That follows a 1.9 percent (it's actually 1.3%) growth rate in the first three months of the year. Those are the slowest back-to-back quarters since the economy began recovering from the recession two years ago.

What's really in the food? The A to Z of the food industry's most evil ingredients

Mike Adams
Natural News -

Ever wonder what's really in the food sold at grocery stores around the world? People keep asking me, "What ingredients should I avoid?" So I put together a short list that covers all the most toxic and disease-promoting ingredients in the food supply. These are the substances causing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and leading to tens of billions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs across America (and around the world).

If you want to stay healthy and out of the hospital, read ingredients labels and make sure you avoid all these ingredients:

Acrylamides - Toxic, cancer-causing chemicals formed in foods when carbohydrates are exposed to high heat (baking, frying, grilling). They're present in everything from bread crusts to snack chips, and because they aren't intentional ingredients, acrylamides do NOT have to be listed on labels.

Aspartame - Chemical sweetener that causes neurological disorders, seizures, blurred vision and migraine headaches. (

Autolyzed Proteins - Highly processed form of protein containing free glutamate and used to mimic the taste-enhancer chemical MSG.

BPA (Bisphenol-A) - A hormone mimicking chemical found in nearly all food packaging plastics. Active in just parts per billion, BPA promotes cancer, infertility and hormone disorders. It also "feminizes" males, promoting male breast growth and hormone disruption (

Casein - Milk proteins. Hilariously, this is widely used in "soy cheese" products that claim to be alternatives to cow's milk. Nearly all of them are made with cow's milk proteins.

Corn Syrup - Just another name for High Fructose Corn Syrup (see below). Frequently used in infant formula products (

Food Colors - FD&C Red #40, for example, is linked to behavioral disorders in children. Nearly all artificial food colors are derived from petroleum, and many are contaminated with aluminum.

Genetically Modified Ingredients - Not currently listed on the label because the GMO industry (Monsanto and DuPont) absolutely does not want people to know which foods contain GMOs. Nearly all conventionally grown corn, soy and cotton are GMOs. They're linked to severe infertility problems and may even cause the bacteria in your body to produce and release a pesticide in your own gut. If you're not eating organic corn, you're definitely eating GMO corn. ( Learn more at or watch my GMO music video (hilarious) at

High Fructose Corn Syrup - A highly processed liquid sugar extracted with the chemical solvent glutaraldehyde and frequently contaminated with mercury ( It's also linked to diabetes, obesity and mood disorders. Used in thousands of grocery items, including things you wouldn't suspect like pizza sauce and salad dressings.

Homogenized Milk - The fats in the milk are artificially modified to change them into smaller molecules that stay in suspension in the milk liquid (so the milk fat doesn't separate) ( While it makes milk look better on the shelf, it's also blamed for promoting heart disease and may contribute to milk allergies. Raw milk is healthier, which is why the government had outlawed it (

Hydrochloride - When you see anything hydrochloride, such as Pyridoxine Hydrochloride or Thiamin Hydrochloride, those are chemical forms of B vitamins that companies add to their products to be able to claim higher RDA values of vitamins. But these are synthetic, chemical forms of vitamins, not real vitamins from foods or plants. Nutritionally, they are near-useless and may actually be bad for you. Also watch out for niacinamide and cyanocobalamin (synthetic vitamin B-12). (

Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein - A highly processed form of (usually) soy protein that's processed to bring out the free glutamate (MSG). Use as a taste enhancer.

Partially Hydrogenated Oils - Oils that are modified using a chemical catalyst to make them stable at room temperature. This creates trans fatty acids and greatly increases the risk of blocked arteries ( It also promotes what I call "sludge blood," which is thick, viscous blood that's hard to pump. This is usually diagnosed by doctors as "high blood pressure" and (stupidly) treated with blood-thinning medications that are technically the same chemicals as rat poison (warfarin) (

Phosphoric Acid - The acid used in sodas to dissolve the carbon dioxide and add to the overall fizzy-ness of the soda. Phosphoric acid will eat steel nails. It's also used by stone masons to etch rocks. The military uses it to clean the rust off battleships. In absolutely destroys tooth enamel ( Search Google Images for "Mountain Dew Mouth" to see photos of teeth rotted out by phosphoric acid:

Propylene Glycol - A liquid used in the automotive industry to winterize RVs. It's also used to make the fake blueberries you see in blueberry muffins, bagels and breads. (Combined with artificial colors and corn syrup.) See shocking "Fake Blueberries" video at:

Sodium (Salt) - The processed white salt lacking in trace minerals. In the holistic nutrition industry, we call it "death salt" because it promotes disease and death. Real salt, on the other hand, such as "dirty" sea salt or pink Himalayan salt, is loaded with the trace minerals that prevent disease, such as selenium (cancer), chromium (diabetes) and zinc (infectious disease). Much like with bread and sugar, white salt is terrible for your health. And don't be fooled by claims of "sea salt" in grocery stores. All salt came from the sea if you go far back enough in geologic time, so they can slap the "sea salt" claim on ANY salt!

Sodium Nitrite - A cancer-causing red coloring chemical added to bacon, hot dogs, sausage, beef jerky, ham, lunch meats, pepperoni and nearly all processed meats. Strongly linked to brain tumors, pancreatic cancers and colon cancers ( The USDA once tried to ban it from the food supply but was out-maneuvered by the meat industry, which now dominates USDA regulations. Sodium nitrite is a complete poison used to make meats look fresh. Countless children die of cancer each year from sodium nitrite-induced cancers.

Soy Protein - The No. 1 protein source used in "protein bars," including many bars widely consumed by bodybuilders. Soy protein is the "junk protein" of the food industry. It's made from genetically modified soybeans (often grown in China) and then subjected to hexane, a chemical solvent ( that can literally explode.

Sucralose - An artificial chemical sweetener sold as Splenda. The sucralose molecule contains a chlorine atom ( Researchers have repeatedly found that artificial sweeteners make people fat by actually promoting weight gain (

Sugar - The bleached, nutritionally-deficient byproduct of cane processing. During sugar cane processing, nearly all the minerals and vitamins end up in the blackstrap molasses that's usually fed to farm animals. (Blackstrap molasses is actually the "good" part of sugar cane juice.) Molasses is often fed to farm animals because every rancher knows that farm animals need good nutrition to stay alive. Amazingly, conventional doctors don't yet realize this about humans, and they continue to claim that eating sugar is perfectly fine for you. Sugar promotes diabetes, obesity, mood disorders and nutritional deficiencies.

Textured Vegetable Protein - Usually made of soy protein which is extracted from genetically modified soybeans and then processed using hexane, an explosive chemical solvent (see Soy Protein, above). Widely used in vegetarian foods such as "veggie burgers" (most of which also contain MSG or Yeast Extract, by the way).

Yeast Extract - Hidden form of MSG that contains free glutamate and is used in many "natural" food products to claim "No MSG!" Yeast extract contains up to 14% free glutamate. You'll find it in thousands of grocery store products, from soups to snack chips. I even once spotted it used on fresh meat!

Vacant Homes Will Drown Housing Recovery

They have this back asswards definition of "recovery". It will never be a recovery in their eyes until prices return to and exceed the highs of the previous bubble, which was completely fake, fueled by the Fed's monopoly money. Housing will recover when the price reflects demand. Right now there are somewhere around 19 million unoccupied homes in America. That means there's a mega-surplus in supply, and nowhere near enough demand. Prices have to come down.

Keynesians think price deflation is some kind of horrible evil, and they make the average American believe it too, but why buy a house if you know prices still have a long way to the bottom? And isn't that good for the buyer? Not good for the seller, but chances are their choice to buy that home was malinvestment anyway. They had no idea of how bubbles are formed, and were duped by idiot establishment economists into thinking housing prices could never, ever, ever go down. So they leaped before they looked. Mark my words, like FDR forcing farmers to kill every other pig and plow under every other row, in order to create artificial scarcity and drive up food prices in a depression when people were starving, the government and the banks will somehow keep these houses off the market - either by simply refusing to sell them, or by demolishing them altogether. That's how sick these people are. And sure enough, Bank of America is doing just that.

    CNBC -

    A real estate source I knew recently told me about a guy he knows in Atlanta who has been hired by several different banks to winterize their REO's (real estate owned, i.e. the bank-owned foreclosures).

    The homes are abandoned and empty, and clearly the banks think they're going to stay that way for a while.

    The winterizer didn't want to do an interview, for fear he would lose his clients, the banks, who might not want us all to know about this.

Let's stop assuming the police are on our side

And let the gnashing of teeth begin.

    From mass arrests to surveillance, confidence in the Metropolitan police is at an all-time low

    London Guardian -

    Can confidence in the Metropolitan police sink any lower? Even before the past few weeks revealed the possibility of their complicity in the News of the World hacking scandal, and the past few months their brutal attitude towards the policing of students and other protesters, there were many who already had reason to mistrust those who claim to be "working together for a safer London".

    Take Ann Roberts, a special needs assistant, who was recently given the go-ahead in the high court to challenge the allegedly racist way in which stop-and–search powers are used: her lawyers claim statistics indicate that a black person is more than nine times more likely to be searched than a white person.

    Or take the family of Smiley Culture, still waiting for answers after the reggae singer died in a police raid on his home in March this year. They are campaigning on behalf of all those who've died in police custody. Inquest, a charity which deals with contentious death, particularly in police custody, reports that more than 400 people from black and ethnic minority communities have died in prison, police custody and secure training centres in England and Wales since 1990.

Air Force Cites New Testament, Ex-Nazi, to Train Officers on Ethics of Launching Nuclear Weapons

God loves when you bomb brown pseudo-humans into the stone age.

    Jason Leopold
    Truthout -

    The United States Air Force has been training young missile officers about the morals and ethics of launching nuclear weapons by citing passages from the New Testament and commentary from a former member of the Nazi Party, according to newly released documents.

    The mandatory Nuclear Ethics and Nuclear Warfare session, which includes a discussion on St. Augustine's "Christian Just War Theory," is led by Air Force chaplains and takes place during a missile officer's first week in training at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Ranks of hungry children swell, worrying doctors

This in no way should encourage you to store food, and buy seeds (and a shotgun or rifle). You know, so you could actually feed yourself as the economy continues to crumble - I mean recover. Remain hopelessly dependent on the grid, and trust that government will take care of you. Stories like these, you should ignore. Or, even better, blame the parents for being lazy, worthless parasites. There there...everything is okay. Go watch TV.

    Boston Globe -

    Doctors at a major Boston hospital report they are seeing more hungry and dangerously thin young children in the emergency room than at any time in more than a decade of surveying families.

    Many families are unable to afford enough healthy food to feed their children, say the Boston Medical Center doctors. The resulting chronic hunger threatens to leave scores of infants and toddlers with lasting learning and developmental problems.

    Before the economy soured in 2007, 12 percent of youngsters age 3 and under whose families were randomly surveyed in the hospital’s emergency department were significantly underweight. In 2010, that percentage jumped to 18 percent, and the tide does not appear to be abating, said Dr. Megan Sandel, an associate professor of pediatrics and public health at BMC.

    Food is costing more, and dollars don’t stretch as far,’’ Sandel said. “It’s hard to maintain a diet that is healthy.’’

New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism

As we focus on the fake economic crisis, real environmental destruction continues, carried out by the same people we demand save us from global warming. Meanwhile, hardly a day goes by that some sort of corruption is exposed among the "scientists" among this cult.

    Yahoo News -

    NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.

    Study co-author Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA's Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from NASA's Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.

    "The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show," Spencer said in a July 26 University of Alabama press release. "There is a huge discrepancy between the data and the forecasts that is especially big over the oceans."

Threat Of Right-Wing Extremism In U.S. Debated By Feds, Analysts

We need a bigger police state, to protect the police state. Because if you oppose the grotesque Stalinist police state taking shape in this country, no matter what your political ideology, you are a right-wing extremist and they are coming for you. Wouldn't you rather just put on Lee Greenwood and act like a real right-wing extremist, celebrating the Patriot Act and the DHS and the TSA for keeping us safe from turr'ists all over the world? Me either.

    HuffPo -

    NEW YORK -- The bombing and shooting spree in Norway on Friday has raised questions about whether federal law enforcement agencies in the United States are devoting enough resources and attention to the threat posed by right-wing extremists here. On the alert for such threats posed by white supremacists and members of a sovereign citizen movement that rejects government authority and militias, law enforcement officials around the country have reportedly asked for budget increases to handle the task.

    Department of Homeland Security officials insist that the level of activity by such groups has remained consistent over the past few years and that the agency is focused on the menace posed by such groups.

    "As it stands today, we have been much more focused than at any time in the last 10 years on threat posed by homegrown terrorism," a senior DHS counterterrorism official told The Huffington Post.

    Yet analysts who track extremist activity claim that the threat posed by right-wing extremists in the United States is on the rise and that federal law enforcement agencies may not be giving them enough resources or attention.

Theft is on the rise in a worsening economy

There are many reasons why this Depression will be worse than the first. The criminal factor is one. Because back in the 30's and 40's, a much larger percentage of Americans were self-sufficient. Back then, you weren't considered a quack if you had a pantry full of emergency food and water, and a garden growing in your back yard. You hoped for the best but prepared for the worst, just in case. This was common sense. Today, we are invincible. At least in our own ridiculous minds. And it seems like no matter how bad things get, few people can be bothered to perk their ears up and look around at what's happening.

As the situation deteriorates, and more and more people who cannot take care of themselves without the State get torn from the grid, they will be forced to turn to violence. Especially as the currency is destroyed and precious metals such as copper becomes more and more valuable. As the economy continues to crumble, we will start tearing each other apart. I won't be around for that.

    Natural News -

    It is not strange to hear about cars, jewelry or money being stolen. These days, desperate thieves are choosing bizarre targets: copper wires, air conditioning units, storm drain covers, grapes, ambulances, pain killers and even bees. This petty thievery of agricultural goods and odd supplies is the new norm in a rapidly worsening economy where unemployment is rampant.

    The downturn in the economy and record unemployment numbers have created a heightened sense of desperation, which subsequently is leading to a rapid increase in crime levels all over the country.

Drought Withering Away Any Chance of Recovery

From late-season frosts, scorching heat, and record flooding wiping out crops, to the worst drought in recent memory, added to the ongoing destruction of our currency pushing the price of food up, up, up, our food security is fragile at best, and deteriorating by the day. There are those who are prepared, and there are those who will suffer. Choose.

    SHTF Plan -

    It is no secret that we are in one of the worst droughts of our lifetime. Could these weather conditions be the beginning of something much worse? Or even create a perfect storm that will lead to the beginning of the end of America’s vitality?

    To begin, farmers in Oklahoma and in Texas are already bracing themselves for what may be their largest TEOTWAWKI event ever experienced. These two states are the largest producers of hay and cattle in the United States. However, due to persistent drought conditions plaguing this part of the country, the outcome has the two states seeing the smallest hay crop in over a century, thus creating a shortage of feed for livestock. ”Farms may harvest only one crop from alfalfa and Bermuda grass this year, compared with three normally”, said Larry Redmon, a state forage specialist at Texas A&M University.

No link between 9/11 exposure and cancer: U.S.

Well I guess that settles it. The government says it doesn't cause cancer, even though asbestos, known to be in the dust, is a proven carcinogen, and one of the more potent ones at that, and even though the White House ordered the EPA to lie about the air quality around Ground Zero in the days after 9-11 so that Wall Street could begin trading again. More people will die from this crime than the actual attack itself, and the government just swept it under the rug, nice and tidy. But since we all know conspiracies don't exist, just pretend you didn't read all that. Go watch TV.

    The Raw Story -

    A US government review of scientific studies has shown no proof that exposure to the dust and rubble from the World Trade Center after the attacks of September 11, 2001 caused cancer.

    The review of peer-reviewed medical and scientific literature sparked anger among some firefighters, police and other first responders who said they have seen too many colleagues suffer from cancer to believe that there was no link.

    "Insufficient evidence exists at this time to propose a rule to add cancer, or a certain type of cancer, to the list of WTC-related health conditions," said the review released Tuesday by John Howard, a doctor who heads the US government's World Trade Center Health Program.

States Count Cash While Hoping for U.S. Debt Agreement

Unfortunately there is no easy, painless solution to this problem. The least painful, quickest recovery would be for America to default now. A lot of people - tax feeders, mostly - would lose their jobs. They'll lose their jobs anyway, now or at a later date. The debt isn't even ours anyway. Default, default, default.

    Bloomberg -

    Arizona is prepared to draw on its $1 billion in cash to cope with a possible federal government shutdown. South Carolina has plans to idle all but its most essential employees. Michigan may have to cut aid to the poor.

    With Washington in a political deadlock that may stop the federal government from borrowing money as soon as next week, states are preparing for the fallout should the Treasury Department run out of cash. Used to the brinkmanship in their own legislatures, state officials say they expect Congress to reach a deal to head off a shutdown, or that any disruption would last only a few days.

Long-term, universal flu shot on horizon

Being based on quack science, you should not expect this vaccine to perform any better than any of their other ones. Unless of course you look at it from their perspective, and consider vaccines a biological weapon which fries our brains and destroys our immune systems. Then it will perform swimmingly. And if you have a seizure, catch the flu, die, or are afflicted with some other illness you've never suffered from immediately after getting it, just remember: it's not the vaccine that did it to you.

Consolidation of seed companies leading to corporate domination of world food supply

The world is just screaming at you, "GROW YOUR OWN FOOD!" Between the ecological and nutritional destruction of factory farmed, genetically modified, pesticide plastered food, to the monetary devaluation causing this increasingly worthless and toxic food to cost more and more, to the cornering of the seed market by the maniacs who genetically modify seeds so they can be blasted with pesticides without dying, you are literally suicidal if you're not stocking up on organic seeds and growing your own food. Unfortunately, most Americans are either too ignorant to notice or too lazy to care (I've actually met such people). "Grow my own food? Why do that when I have other people I've never met and have no idea of their ethics to grow it for me?"

    Natural News -

    Throughout the history of agriculture across the globe, farming has always been a diversified sector of the economy. Small, self-sustaining, family farms were the order of the day in most cultures. Even as small farms grew larger and more specialized over time, many of them still saved seeds or purchased them from other farmers, which kept control of farming in the hands of the people.

    But today everything has changed, as large chemical and agribusiness firms have acquired or merged with seed companies and other agricultural input companies. They have successfully gained a foothold on genetically-modified (GM) crops with transgenic traits.

    These primary factors and several others have facilitated a crescendo towards the global domination of agriculture by corporations, and thus the world's food supply.

Truth, Justice, Movements

A great deal of teeth gnashing ensued the supposed turncoating of Charlie Veitch, from 9-11 truther to alleged globalist/NWO shill. It was a sad sight to see: people supposedly free of mind losing their minds over the meaningless incantations of one clown with a bullhorn and a video camera. For me at least it was evidence of how easy our minds are controlled, because no matter how enlightened many take themselves to be, if they can be kept inside the cage of groupthink, they are still very much plugged in.

Any movement, no matter how profound, no matter what issue it wraps itself around, is a distraction, and cannot be kept free from at least some outside influence, outside control. Here we saw how easily a movement could be thrown into chaos, that one supposed leader – one man – changed his mind, for whatever reason, and rather than shrug it off, as if the truth could be affected by such an insignificant turn of events, the whole movement acts like the sky is falling. He probably received death threats, which must have been quite disheartening for him, because it was likely threats from the other side that led him to reverse course in the first place. We'll never know, and it couldn't be any less significant.

Was Charlie the only one telling the truth, and is he now the only one slanging lies? Was he some kind of oasis of truth that is now gone, leaving everyone helpless? No. So what has changed? Certainly not the truth. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth, said Gandhi.

Yes, it's good to understand that government is a gang of criminals and thieves, writ large. Great. Get over it. The deception of deceptions is this whole idea that those with power have something that they took from you that you must fight to take back. This is a form of control. They never had any power that you didn't give them, and that includes the power to commit false flag terrorism against their "own people" (they're not Americans, they're globalists, but I digress). That includes the power to commit these crimes with impunity, to be immune from punishment if for no other reason than plausible deniability, much less having control of the media and all three branches of government.

More teeth gnashing ensues when I imply that we are to blame, but self-examination is not presently one of the better qualities of the mob. What power do they have without us? Who gave them this power? Of course, we didn't create the Federal Reserve in 1913 – most of us weren't alive then. We weren't alive or at least old enough to bear responsibility as this fascist institution wrapped its tentacles around every essential aspect of American society and culture. But, here and now, having grown up, we still use their currency, which is debt-based and worthless. We still borrow money to pay for everything we “own”. We still vote in their crooked and rigged elections. We still join their military, or if we don't, a great many of us worship the institution as if it were of God; we prostrate ourselves before its hired killers. Many of us still go to work for their military industrial complex. And we still pay taxes.

Movements and groupthink are nothing but avenues for us to relinquish responsibility for our own actions, or inactions. We stand outside their buildings waxing hysterical about truth and justice, and they laugh at us as their hired thugs, AKA the militarized police, tear gas us and assault us with batons, attack dogs and sound cannons. Face it, folks: the game is rigged. They've very carefully and meticulously created this matrix over generations with nothing but their own aggrandizement and perpetuation in mind. They haven't come this far to let a mob of people clamoring for justice stop them.

    I shouted out, "Who killed the Kennedy's?" when after all, it was you and me. - The Rolling Stones

It is difficult to wrap your head around, because it is part of your programming. They killed 3,000 people...someone has to pay! The Matrix we live under does not have at its source some external influence. The global power elite are not aliens (well, maybe they are...), they're not gods or supervillains. They are a manifestation of the diseased egoic mindset of the collective. They are you. They are me. If you want justice for 9-11 you just as well might wrap the noose around your own neck.

The only justice to be had in this world is to accept responsibility for your actions, or inactions, and do what must be done to change. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Take responsibility. It is ridiculously simple yet staggeringly difficult. We hate them, and yet we think we need them. For as long as the current egoic malaise exists in the collective psyche, you can hang all the Dick Cheney's and Larry Silverstein's, et al, you like, and more will simply take their place. This state of the world will change when you change. If you feel like change cannot take place until other people change, then change will never take place. If you feel like leaders like Charlie Veitch, people who are vulnerable and fallible and human, are needed to wake people up, then change will never take place. Change only takes place when you step into your own power, and jealously guard that power and let no one have it. You are part of the collective, and your own personal awakening evolves the collective towards consciousness and freedom. That is all you can do, and it is enough.

What you resist, persists; if you're fighting the system, you're still a slave to it. It will never end, no matter how hard you fight it, until you "take back" that power by simply ceasing to give it to them. That is the closest thing to "justice" that you'll ever get, and personally, for me, true freedom, true sovereignty, *is* justice.

Food Toxins and How They're Killing Us

Note: This is an abbreviated version of a previous article I wrote on food and water toxins that make us fat, stupid, sick and weak. In its abbreviated form, it focuses more on the who, what and where and less on the why, which may seem overwhelming to a lot of people. More important that they understand what is killing us and making us sick than why it's in our food. If you want the answer to that question, see here for the full article.

The amount of toxins we likely ingest on a daily basis is staggering. Their harmful effects are known to the establishment, yet not only are we not adequately warned about them, we are told they are safe. There are actually laws that allow food producers to add chemicals to our food - upwards of 17,000 of them - without telling us, because these additives are toxic and, were we to know they were in our food, it would affect the corporation's bottom line. Since they are not required to tell us what these additives are, I can only speak to what is known for fact. Without even scratching the surface, these are the worst, and their effects on the human mind and body.


Fluoride is by far the most pervasive toxin we are exposed to on a daily basis. A 2001 report from Scientific American stated that it is literally impossible to avoid overexposure to fluoride. Two-thirds of American municipalities dump it in their water, and thus, even if you do not drink tap water, or your water is not fluoridated, you can expect to find fluoride in your soda, beer, juice, sports drinks, vitamins, cold and flu medications, and pretty much any food product that is made with or contains water. This is to say nothing of our toothpastes and mouthwash.
    "In the 1930's, Hitler and the German Nazis envisioned a world to be dominated and controlled by the Nazi philosophy of pan-Germanism. The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass control, which was submitted to, and adopted by, the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies. By this method they could control the population in whole areas, reduce population by water medication that would induce sterility in women and so on. In this scheme of mass control sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place.

    Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual’s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him. [A convenient light lobotomy]

    The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children’s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty. - Charles Perkins

Fluoridated water was first used in Hitler's death camps, because it lowers IQ and makes you docile and placid; relaxed. For this reason sodium fluoride is also found in Prozac. Given that the global power elite, many of whom are "Americans" (Rockefeller, Gates, Bush, Cold Spring Harbor, etc.), is married to the eugenics movement, and considering their cooperation and support of Hitler, it cannot be said that this was unknown to them when they decided to start fluoridating the water in America, or that their intent was not the same as Hitler's.

Sodium fluoride is a toxic industrial waste product from phosphate fertilizer, aluminum, and nuclear weapons manufacturing, among others. It is so toxic that it is illegal to dump in rivers or streams. Read this as many times as you deem necessary, before it registers in your brain; break through the programming and see it for what it is: THEY ARE DUMPING TOXIC WASTE INTO OUR WATER. Sodium fluoride is often the active toxin in rat poison and insecticides. And you're drinking it. More on your doctor and dentist later.

High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)

Fat has 250 times more calories than sugar, yet even with this nutritional disadvantage, high fructose corn syrup is the number one source of calories in the United States. Fructose is much more readily metabolized to fat in the liver than glucose, and in the process can lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD in turn leads to hepatic insulin resistance and type II diabetes. It increases your triglyceride and bad cholesterol (LDL) levels, whereas glucose does not. It harms the way primary organs like the liver and pancreas function, leading to bone loss, anemia and heart problems, just to name a few. And it has recently been discovered that HFCS is contaminated with mercury, which is as you know a violent neurotoxin.

The HFCS industry cites studies that claim it's no different than sugar, but all of these studies were funded by groups with a financial stake in HFCS - such as Pepsi. Like fluoride, HFCS is extremely prevalent in foods and beverages. It's found in soda, juice, breads, yogurt, frozen foods, salad dressings, ketchup, spaghetti sauce, and many other products. In fact by the time you're finished reading this, you may come to the same conclusion that I have: don't eat anything processed. But if you're not at that point yet, keep reading.

Monosodium glutamate (MSG)

MSG, or Monosodium Glutamate is an excitotoxin - a substance that over-excites brain cells to the point of damage and death. It is worse than alcohol, worse than nicotine, and worse than most illegal drugs.

MSG is toxic particularly in children whose blood-brain barrier have not yet fully developed; they are four times as sensitive to MSG as adults. This is disturbing considering MSG is found in most baby formulas. More on this in a moment.

In rats, MSG caused them to crave sugars and simple carbohydrates over protein-rich foods. This is because the pancreas is stimulated to produce insulin, which explains MSG's association with obesity and type 2 diabetes, regardless of caloric intake or activity. It causes retinal damage, insomnia, heart disease, and high blood pressure. It can cause arrhythmia and cardio artery spasm, leading to sudden cardiac arrest. In cancer, MSG dramatically promotes growth and metastasis. It causes cancer cells to become mobile, spreading more quickly from one part of the body to another. In the elderly, whose blood-brain barrier is weakened, the cumulative effects of MSG act as a "slow neurotoxin," not resulting in observable damage such as dementia immediately but only after long periods of exposure. There is practically no system of the body that is not damaged by MSG.

MSG is found in nearly any processed food, even those that don't specifically list MSG as an ingredient and claim to be natural. Some foods such as seaweed or tomatoes have complex amino acid groupings, which are bound (as opposed to free). When these groupings are autolyzed or hydrolyzed, the amino acids - glutamates - are released in an unnatural way, enhancing the flavor the same way MSG does, with the same toxic effects. Like the 17,000 chemicals food manufacturers can add without telling you to protect their bottom line, these are some of the dirty little tricks they play to keep you from knowing you're eating unnatural MSG. There are literally dozens of food additives that contain MSG, such as broth, casein, anything hydrolyzed or autolyzed, and many others. Soybean extracts are loaded with glutamate, in many cases higher than pure MSG; people who consume large amounts of soy products have high incidences of dementia and brain atrophy. All soy products should be avoided as if they were poison - they are.

Particularly in baby formula, unsuspecting parents will choose a brand believing there to be no MSG, as it is not listed on the label, not realizing that caseinate or hydrolyzed protein broth are really MSG; physiologically these children could be abnormal for the rest of their lives.


Of all the poisons the eugenicists have foisted onto the American people, only sodium fluoride tops aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal) in terms of pure evil. And I say this only because of sodium fluoride's Nazi history and the fact that it's a toxic industrial waste product that is too toxic to be dumped in rivers and streams, yet we have been fooled into accepting it's healthy to dump it in our drinking water. The story of how aspartame became a staple of the American diet is a long and disturbing one.

Aspartame, also an excitotoxin and an rDNA derivative, is made from two amino acids - L-phenylalanine, L-aspartic acid - and methanol. The amino acid content in aspartame allows for mouthpieces for this poison to call it "healthy" or "natural", ignoring the methanol found in it and what it does to the body when ingested.

But once upon a time, for eight years, aspartame was banned by the FDA. This would seem natural, having at the time only recently been found on a Pentagon list of biochemical warfare agents submitted to Congress. Take a moment to ingest that: aspartame is a biochemical warfare agent.

Aspartame saw a new day in the FDA court in the early 70's, but G.D. Searle, the company that produces it, faced serious ethical questions in its methodology and data used to prove its safety. The 1974 FDA task force set up to examine aspartame and G.D. Searle reported "serious deficiencies in Searle's operations and practices, which undermine the basis for reliance on Searle's integrity in conducting high quality animal research to accurately determine the toxic potential of its products." They concluded with the recommendation that G.D. Searle should face a Grand Jury "to identify more particularly the nature of the violations, and to identify all those responsible.

The final 1976 report noted serious and criminal misrepresentation and suppression of data in G.D. Searle's research. Desperate to suppress this information, G.D. Searle appointed Nixon and Ford administration operative Donald Rumsfeld its chairman. The FDA requested that U.S. Attorney Samuel Skinner investigate Searle's aspartame testing procedures. Skinner was the federal prosecutor responsible for convincing the Grand Jury to investigate Searle's criminal and fraudulent research. Skinner met with Searle attorneys at the Chicago law firm of Sidley & Austin. Suddenly, newly elected President Carter announced that Skinner would not remain in office, and Skinner thereafter announced that he would be hired by Sidley & Austin. The case was taken over by US Attorney William Conlon, who blatantly dragged his feet in prosecuting Searle. Failing in his duties, Conlon also joined Searle's law firm. The fix was in.

In 1981, Rumsfeld's boy at the FDA, Commissioner Arthur Hayes, approved the initial use of aspartame in dry foods and as a tabletop sweetener. Disregarded as anecdotal were the public's concerns, as well as 3 FDA scientists, regarding brain tumors, which every scientific study not funded by Searle showed were prevalent in long term aspartame exposure. Naturally, after resigning from the FDA Hayes under a cloud of conflicts of interest, was hired as senior medical consultant for the public relations firm retained by Searle.

After aspartame was approved for soft drinks in 1983, complaints of side effects poured in - headaches, dizziness, vomiting, nausea, blurred vision, seizures, convulsions, and more. Long-term aspartame ingestion can disturb the metabolism of amino acids, protein structure and metabolism, the integrity of nucleic acids, neuron function, and endocrine balances. The breakdown of aspartame causes nerves to fire excessively, which can indirectly lead to a high rate of neuron depolarization.

The harmful effects of aspartame are practically endless. When you ingest aspartame, it breaks down into its two constituent amino acids, and methanol.

    Aspartame is 40% aspartic acid. When aspartic acid is consumed, it significantly raises the level of aspartate in your blood, which over-excites neurotransmitters in the brain, destroying neurons. Again, this is what is referred to by Dr Blaylock as excitotoxicity.

    Aspartame is 50% phenylalanine. Excessive levels of this amino acid can decease serotonin levels in the brain, leading to depression. Again, the aspartame lobby would have you believe that the presence of amino acids in aspartame makes it natural and healthy, however, as we've seen, monosodium glutamate is also an amino acid; this has nothing to do with it being natural or healthy. It is neither.

    The remaining 10% of aspartame is methanol, or wood alcohol. Not only is methanol poisonous by itself, when ingested it further breaks down into formaldehyde, a deadly neurotoxic carcinogen. Formaldehyde is embalming fluid. Methanol poisoning can cause visual impairment, including blindness; headaches, ear buzzing, and dizziness; nausea and gastrointestinal disturbances; weakness, numbness and shooting pains in the extremities; behavioral disturbances and memory lapses. Formaldehyde further breaks down into formic acid, which is also toxic and commonly used as an activator to strip epoxy and urethane coatings. Delicious!

Aspartame causes, mimics, or worsens the conditions of the following diseases:

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Alzheimer's
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Multiple chemical sensitivity
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Attention deficit disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Depression and other psychological disorders
  • Lupus
  • Diabetes and diabetic complications
  • Birth defects
  • Lymphoma
  • Lyme's Disease
  • Hypothyroidism

Aspartame, like MSG, is linked to obesity and diabetes, because it creates a craving for simple carbohydrates.

Dr Russell Blaylock, a leader in aspartame and MSG research who coined the term "excitotoxin", cites an Italian study in which animals were fed aspartame throughout their entire lives, and were studied until they died natural deaths. They found a dramatic increase in related cancers of lymphoma and leukemia, as well as several histological lymphomas of the brain. He continues:

    When you look it up in the neurosurgical literature, there is a rather significant rise in the incidents of what used to be a rare tumor. We're seeing a lot more of the primary lymphoma of the brain, which is a little different than lymphomas you see elsewhere. When you look back at the original studies done by the G.D. Searle company, they found lymphomas as well as primary brain tumors and tumors of multiple organs. All of this correlation shows that we've got a powerful carcinogenic substance here. It is either acting as a co-carcinogen or a primary carcinogen. Most likely, it's the formaldehyde breakdown product.

    What the Italian study found is that if you take these same animals and expose them to formaldehyde in the same doses, they developed the same leukemias and lymphomas. If you look back at the Troker Study conducted in Spain a couple of years ago, what they found was when they radiolabeled the aspartame, they could actually see formaldehyde binding to the DNA, and it produced both single and double strand DNA breakage.

    We know that when formaldehyde binds to DNA, it's very difficult to remove it. It will stay there for long periods of time. What that means is if you just drink a single diet cola today, or sweeten something with NutraSweet, you're accumulating damage every day. Eventually, you're going to produce this necessary pattern of DNA damage to initiate the cancer, and once you develop the cancer, the aspartic acid component of aspartame will make the cancer grow very rapidly. You've got a double effect; it's causing the cancer, and it's making the cancer move very rapidly.

These were swept under the rug by the government, which blatantly and overtly lied and vouched for its safety. The FDA, true to its corporate shill form, declared that "no evidence has been found to establish that aspartame's methanol by-product reaches toxic levels." This of course is a lie, since, according to a Medical World News report in 1978, the methanol content of aspartame is 1,000 times greater than most foods under FDA control. Today aspartame is found in over 4,000 products worldwide and is consumed by over 200 million people in the United States alone.

Corporatism (Fascism) in Our Health Ministries

Benito Mussolini once said, "Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Specifically, it is the control of the State by the corporation (whereas socialism is the reverse: the control of the corporation by the State). And this is what we see today in our government - for the purposes of this essay, the pharmaceutical, chemical, and agricultural mega-corporations (some corporations transcend all three) have usurped control of our health ministries, so that they are entrusted with watching over themselves. Obviously they will be looking out for their own bottom line, not the health and safety of the American people.

Some would say its hyper-cynical to say that corporations only look out for their own profits at the expense of the consumer. In a free market we would not have to worry about this, because independent studies on the safety of these products would show them to be harmful, and no one would buy them, forcing these corporations to either produce healthier products or go out of business. But when the FDA is staffed by lobbyists for, say, Monsanto, Monsanto doesn't have to worry about the safety of its genetically modified foods or its Roundup product these foods are designed to be sprayed with because the lobbyists for Monsanto working within the FDA will give themselves the FDA seal of approval. Who watches the watchmen? The watchmen.

Examine who funds such medical journals as the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition or College Nutrition, or major studies on food safety. Corporations like Bayer and Monsanto. Con Agra. Kraft. All major corporations responsible for infesting our foods with the toxins making us fat, sick, stupid and weak. You also see pharmaceutical giants like GlaxoSmithKline; I can imagine nothing that would please a pharmaceutical corporation more than widespread chronic illness. In fact, the pharmaceutical industry benefits greatly from the harmful additives in our food, and plays a major roll in facilitating their approval, use, and protection.

The US government and Monsanto has had a revolving door between its employees for decades. President Obama recently appointed former Monsanto lobbyist Michael Taylor as a senior adviser to the Food and Drug Administration Commissioner on food safety. Ann Veneman was on the Board of Directors of Monsanto's Calgene Corporation before becoming Secretary of Agriculture under George W Bush. Bush also appointed Monsanto executive Linda Fisher as deputy director of the EPA; Fisher worked for the EPA before becoming an executive at Monsanto. Revolving door. Former acting commissioner of the FDA under Clinton Michael Friedman became senior vice president for clinical affairs at G.D. Searle. William D. Ruckelshaus was the first commissioner of the EPA under Nixon, and spent 12 years on Monsanto's board of directors. Mickey Kantor served on Monsanto's board of directors before being tapped as Bill Clinton's Commerce Secretary. Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice, is a former Monsanto lawyer presiding over a case that would completely deregulate Monsanto's GM seeds and allow them to contaminate the entire country. How will he rule? We'll see. Thomas certainly does not see what is clearly a conflict of interest. And, as discussed earlier, there is Rumsfeld, Conlon, and Skinner's scandalous connections to GD Searle and aspartame.

A Stacked Deck

Presented in this report is a two-fold threat to all of our health and well-being. First of course is the toxic and harmful products most Americans feed themselves and their children on a daily basis. This, along with vaccines, has a cumulative dumbing down effect; not only an erosion of the mind, but an erosion of the body. We are, collectively and in a compounding manner, becoming ever more stupid, fat, lazy and weak. Not only is this profitable to those who benefit from this - the food manufacturers who make more money as Americans become addicted to and eat more of their food, as well as the pharma giants who benefit from an engineered crisis of chronic illness - it is beneficial to those in power who wish to expand the size and scope of their power completely, totally, and utterly.

Second is the cover of protection these products receive from health and safety regulatory arms of government most Americans falsely believe are looking out for them. This makes it ever more difficult for even people like myself and those who are aware of the poison that passes for food, because not only does it severely restrict the choices we have in what we can eat, since harmful products are found in nearly all foods, including fresh produce, which could be genetically modified for all we know (the FDA says we do not have the right to know), but we cannot trust what is "certified" as organic, since the same regulatory arms of government responsible for such labeling are controlled by the same people who have driven many of us to eat organic in the first place.

What can be done? Unfortunately our choices are limited. As long as the masses believe and trust the State to be their lord and savior, it will be difficult to tear away the tentacles these corporations have around our government and our entire lives. We can educate people to these truths, but, speaking from experience, we can expect one of two reactions: either they will not want to know how harmful their food is, because they enjoy it too much. Most people have an intuition that what they're eating is killing them, or shortening their life (is there a difference?), but as long as they can pretend they don't really know what food is doing what to their body, they can be blissful in their ignorance. Or, they will dismiss your warnings as quackery, conspiracy theory kookiness, or the like. Part of the indoctrination we receive from birth is that, as Madeline Albright so aptly put it, "We are America; we are the indispensable nation." America doesn't poison or murder its own citizens; that's what other countries do. Our leaders may be liars or crooks, but there's a line they simply would never cross. Because they're Americans. The air here is different; or maybe there's something different about the soil or the water. Or, of course, we are simply sanctioned by the Creator. Rest easy. Your government is keeping you safe. This is the ultimate threat of a fascist government and economy: again, the watchmen are the ones watching the watchmen. There is no oversight; it's a corporate free-for-all.

So we must vote with our wallets and pocketbooks; we must, whenever possible, spend the extra money to buy real food. And, if possible, we must put forth the extra effort to grow our own food, from our own seeds, in our own soil, harvested by our own hands. That is the only way you'll ever know for sure your food is safe. That's the only way to keep yourself strong and healthy, to keep your mind sharp and clear. It is simultaneously one of your strongest weapons and best line of defense against the elite and their eugenics cult.

Stay healthy. Stay awake. Stay free.
