Severe Flu Cases on the Rise in U.S.

This year’s influenza season started earlier than expected and is sending more patients to the hospital, raising concerns this could be a more severe outbreak than in recent years.

Thirty-six states are now experiencing high levels of flu activity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, as this year’s flu vaccine may not fully protect against a strain known as influenza A H3N2 that is currently circulating and tends to be more severe.

Reports Saying Patients with Ebola-like Symptoms in NYC Are False

Five people were displaying Ebola-like symptoms in the Brooklyn borough of New York City on Monday, according to rumors that were being circulated on Twitter. However, the Health Department says that the reports are not true.

The information appeared to come from police scanner traffic but was unconfirmed. A number of users retweeted the information from several accounts which posted the scanner traffic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wasn't paying much attention to this story until it was officially denied. NOW I am worried! :)

Let's see, tonight there will be a million plus people jammed into Times Square for the New Year. One Ebola carrier added to the mix, an r-naught of 2.2, and I can guess why all those merchants and vendors would not want to see any stories about Ebola in New York right now, along with the government that needs those tax revenues.

Nobody knew what…Famous Scientist: Henry Norris Russell was going to do!

Until the early 19th century, astronomers could do little more than watch the night sky and the movements of the stars charting. But astrophysics brought many new opportunities. The American Henry Norris Russell was one of the first astrophysicists he suggested a color-luminosity diagram for research into the life of stars. This so-called HR diagram is still a resource for astronomers.

Obamacare: How Screwed Are You?

Since the ACA was deemed to have passed Congress, rewritten and declared a tax by Justice Roberts, altered, parsed and carved up by Presidential fiat, had its many exemptions and waivers issued to the fortunate and filibustered against its funding; dozens of minions in various administration agencies have also cranked out over 100 final regulations on how this fraud will be implemented.

That’s the long way of saying you’re about to be subjugated. Think I’m paranoid?

Okay, riddle me this:

Since when does enforcement of a law require thirty times more words and regulations than the law itself?

The answer is when enforcement is the entire point of the law.

But most importantly, the Administration will have you by the short hairs. They’ll have your medical history and the ability to share it or exploit it when it suits them.

Ukraine turns off reactor at its most powerful nuclear plant after 'accident'

Ukraine shut down one of the six reactors in its most powerful nuclear power plant today – for the second time in a month – because of an apparent electrical malfunction.

The Zaporizhia nuclear plant’s website insisted that radiation levels in the area remained normal after the sixth reactor was “disconnected from the grid by the generator’s internal defence mechanism”.

An official statement said the plant was “operating at 40 per cent power… The reasons for the outage are being investigated”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'd hazard a guess here, and that would be, in a country both corrupt and horribly broke, needed maintenance protocols have not been observed, because they were "too costly"

I would like to politely point out to Ukrainian officials that the results of not doing such maintenance, and immediately, may well be even more costly to the health of the Ukrainian people.

The most censored health news stories of 2014 - here's what the establishment doesn't want you to remember

2014 was a year in which we watched the mainstream media devolve into a spot-on depiction of George Orwell's Ministry of Truth, engaging in White House-ordered news story blackouts, CDC-inspired anti-health propaganda that endangered the public and corporate-funded disinfo campaigns disguised as news.

But what were the biggest health-related censored news stories of the year? That's what this Natural News article is all about. Consider it a short list of things the establishment doesn't want you to remember actually happened.

School teachers forced to wear scarlet letter flu masks, gloves when they refuse flu shots that don't even work

The vaccine mafia is upping the stakes in its endless war against free thinking and personal choice. A shocking new report indicates that some daycare workers in Texas are now being forced to wear face masks and gloves throughout the duration of "flu season" if they refuse to be injected with live viruses and mercury.

Citing a letter received from a concerned daycare worker in the College Station area of central Texas, VacTruth.com reports that at least one daycare center in the region, Covenant Presbyterian Children's Center (CPCC), has implemented the egregious policy, which is akin to forcibly labeling all resisters with a giant scarlet letter in order to coerce compliance.

Despite ban Monsanto & Bayer's GMO plants contaminate Europe

New evidence reveals that despite a ban on cultivation of GM rapeseed in Europe, Monsanto and Bayer's plants are now freely growing there.

A new study published in PLoS titled ,"Unexpected Diversity of Feral Genetically Modified Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.) Despite a Cultivation and Import Ban in Switzerland," is believed to be the first report of its kind showing that despite a cultivation and seed import ban of genetically modified (GM) oilseed rape in Switzerland, Monsanto and Bayer's GM plants have been introduced into the environment there, confirming fears that once the GM genie has been let out of the bottle it can not be put back.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The secret GMO war: double agents, betrayal, greed?Dec26

Well, let me put it to you this way. What would happen to Whole Foods’ program of voluntary GMO labeling if there were mandatory labeling across America, or in any state where Whole Foods does business?

Can you guess?

I’ll break it down. Whole Foods has pledged to put “non-GMO” labels on their products by 2018. They’ll do everything they can to sell as many non-GMO products as possible. The products that don’t carry the non-GMO seal will obviously be GMO, and customers can avoid them if they want to.

On the other hand, if suddenly, out of the blue, mandatory labeling became law, the whole voluntary non-GMO label enterprise would be obsolete. Why voluntarily put that label on products when mandatory labeling handles the whole issue?

“We put non-GMO labels on our food. Aren’t we wonderful?”

“Not really. The mandatory labels tell me everything that’s GMO. All the other products are non-GMO. Thanks, but no thanks.”

Ebola Update: CDC Lab Error May Have Caused Exposure

A laboratory technician in Atlanta may have been exposed to the Ebola virus, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A small amount of material from an Ebola virus experiment that was transported Monday from one lab to another may have contained live virus. The material was on a sealed plate but should not have been moved into the second laboratory, the CDC said in a statement.

There was no exposure outside the secure laboratory and no exposure or risk to the public, the CDC says. The mistake was discovered by laboratory scientists Tuesday.

The lab technician who processed the material has no symptoms of the illness, the CDC says, and will be monitored for 21 days. Others who entered the lab will be assessed for possible exposure.

Fukushima Children Thyroid Cancer Rate Continues To Rise

Fukushima prefecture has been conducting regular checkups of over 360,000 people who were in Fukushima in March 2011 and were age 18 or under when the nuclear crisis struck. As WSJ reported in August, a study by researchers in Fukushima prefecture found 57 minors in the prefecture have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer so far and another 46 are showing symptoms that suggest they may also have the disease. Today, as The Japan Times reports, four more children are suspected of suffering from thyroid cancer in the latest survey bringing the total to 107 out of 385,000 now surveyed. This is dramatically higher than the normal "between 5 to 11 cases per million people," that Okayama University professor Toshihide Tsuda cites for national statistics between 1975 and 2008.

As The Japan Times reports,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why the TEPCO leadership and former governmental leadership have not been sued out of existence for this very preventable catastrophe, absolutely eludes me.

Apparently, Japan's future generations are expendable to the Japanese government. And that is going to have profound consequences for this country.

Whole Foods sued for false non-GMO labeling

The case is Michelle Richard v. Whole Foods, as reported by the Food Navigator (12/5/14) and other press outlets.

The plaintiff’s claim? Whole Foods advertised and sold Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk and Vanilla Almond Milk with non-GMO labels, when these products hadn’t been verified as such by the Non-GMO Project.

The Non-GMO Project is, by far, the largest North American group that tests and verifies food products as non-GMO, and grants the use of its “Verified” seal.

Concerning the lawsuit, Whole Foods declined to comment. The Non-GMO Project declined to comment. Blue Diamond declined to comment.

Untested Ebola drug given to patients in Sierra Leone causes UK walkout

Ebola patients at a treatment centre in Sierra Leone have been given a heart drug that is untested against the virus in animals and humans, a move that has been deemed reckless by one senior scientist and has prompted UK medical staff at the centre to leave.

A 14-strong team of British doctors, nurses and paramedics stopped working at the Lakka treatment centre in Freetown because of their concerns over what they considered the experimental and potentially dangerous use of the drug, and other safety issues.

Immigration, open US borders: the secret reason

NAFTA. Obama, during his 2008 Presidential campaign, said he would take another look at that treaty. It needed to be reexamined.

Perhaps he did take a subsequent look, down to the left and far away, as he was flying toward Hawaii on one of his vacations.

NAFTA. From The Guardian, 4 Jan. 2014, “NAFTA: 20 years of regret for Mexico,” by Mark Weisbrot:

“The most basic measure of economic progress, especially for a developing country like Mexico, is the growth of income (or GDP) per person. Out of 20 Latin American countries…Mexico ranks 18, with growth of less than 1% annually since 1994 [when NAFTA went into effect].

“Millions of Mexicans were displaced from farming, for example, after being forced into competition with subsidized and high-productivity agribusiness in the United States, thanks to NAFTA’s rules.”

Pharmacists Charged with 25 Murders in Meningitis Outbreak

Responsible for the deaths of at least 64 people resulting from injections of contaminated medication, the co-owner and supervisory pharmacist of a compounding pharmacy were charged this week with 25 acts of second-degree murder. Sacrificing safety standards for profit, 14 suspects associated with the pharmacy have been charged with 131 counts including conspiracy, mail fraud, racketeering, and violations of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Although the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) believes this is an isolated incident, sources assert these crimes occur on a daily basis in compounding pharmacies throughout the nation.

Ebola Cover Up: CDC Monitoring 1,400 Active Cases: “Government Effort To Control The Message”, by Mac Slavo

According to Fox News Channel’s investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who recently reached out to the Centers for Disease Control, the agency is still very much involved in monitoring individuals for the deadly African-borne virus. The problem, says Attkisson, is that the CDC is covering up the numbers, presumably to minimize panic across the United States.

Attkinson says that following the appointment of Ebola Czar Ron Klain media involvement became almost non-existent because the government stopped releasing statistics and granting interviews in an effort to control the news.

The infectious disease experts I consulted were and remain very concerned about this because if it gets out of control in this country because we will not be able to deal with it.

A lot of the media coverage has gone from overtime to almost nothing since they appointed the Ebola Czar, and I don’t think that’s any accident – I think it’s a strategy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because we have not heard about it in the corporate media does not mean that the threat of Ebola no longer exists in this country; but that it has been deliberately made to fall off the proverbial radar concerns me greatly.

How the CIA Launched the «Financial Pearl Harbor» Attacks on Russia and Venezuela

The net result of the CIA-inspired fracking operations, which the Saudis were warned not to pursue by petroleum engineers working for some foreign-based firms like Schlumberger, is that there will be an oil supply glut for the next 5 years. The glut will be followed by a reduction in Saudi oil production unless new oil fields are brought on line. There is now a major push by U.S. and Canadian oil companies to bring online the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the United States to offset the expected sharp rise in oil prices in four to five years. But with Canada suffering financially from the drop in oil revenues, the Keystone XL project is also on financially shaky ground.

How Nonprofit Hospitals Are Seizing Patients' Wages

On the eastern edge of St. Joseph, Missouri, lies the small city's only hospital, a landmark of brick and glass. Music from a player piano greets visitors at the main entrance, and inside, the bright hallways seem endless. Long known as Heartland Regional Medical Center, the nonprofit hospital and its system of clinics recently rebranded. Now they're called Mosaic Life Care, because, their promotional materials say: "We offer much more than health care. We offer life care."

Two miles away, at the rear of a low-slung building is a key piece of Mosaic—Heartland's very own for-profit debt collection agency.

When patients receive care at Heartland and don't or can't pay, their bills often end up here at Northwest Financial Services. And if those patients don't meet Northwest's demands, their debts can make another, final stop: the Buchanan County Courthouse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the US, we have the most expensive health care in the world, and many times, some of the most lousy outcomes.

And even if you HAVE insurance, you can still get financially crucified if that policy doesn't come from a union, an association, or membership organisation of some kind.

We know. With the insurance Mike had when he got ill with pneumonia last year, the insurance we had for him only paid 10% of the bill, and we are stuck with the other 90%. I am already in negotiations with the hospital, and having worked collections myself, understand that as long as you are consistent, and offer a reasonable payment plan, the hospital cannot drag you into collection.

Intelligent, enlightened countries in Europe have figured out how to fund health care, and have a single payer system, where you have to have the basic insurance, but if you want more coverage, you can get it by buying more.

FLASHBACK - Curiosity might prove we've already found life on Mars

GILBERT LEVIN aims to appropriate the Mars Science Laboratory for his own ends. "Since NASA has disdained any interest in MSL looking for life, I'm taking over," he says. "I claim it."

He is only half joking. If MSL's rover Curiosity finds carbon-based molecules in the Martian soil, Levin - who led the "labelled release" experiment on NASA's 1976 Viking mission - will demand that his refuted discovery of life on Mars is reinstated.

A New Resistance film to expose dangers of Roundup in food, water and all around us

It has been in constant and increasing use for more than 50 years. But glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, isn't at all safe for humans. And a new film project known as A New Resistance seeks to make this fact known on a wide scale, warning the public that this deadly chemical is now present in water, soil, air and food, and is slowly killing us all.

Since 1974, conventional farmers have been dousing their crops with what they were told is a completely safe, broad-spectrum weedkiller. This weedkiller has since become the number one selling herbicide in the world, but a growing body of independent science now shows that it is destroying human health, promoting obesity, infertility, cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, autism and dementia.

11th Sierra Leonean Doctor Dies From Ebola

One of Sierra Leone's most senior physicians died Thursday from Ebola, the 11th doctor in the country to succumb to the disease, a health official said.

Ebola has killed more than 350 health workers in West Africa, depleting the ranks of doctors and nurses in countries that already had too few to begin with. Because Ebola is spread through bodily fluids, it is only transmitted through close contact. It is often called the "caregivers' disease" because those infected are typically family members caring for the sick or health workers treating them.

FLASHBACK - The Calm Before The Storm: An Interview With Dr. Gilbert Levin

In a little over one month, the British built Beagle 2 exobiology lander will look for signs of extinct or extant life on the surface of Mars. Not since NASA's Viking mission 27 years ago has another search for life on Mars been attempted.

One has to wonder why since the Viking mission left behind important unanswered questions - such as: are there organic molecules from either life and meteorites laying on the surface? Or are they destroyed by the hypothetical oxidants many NASA researchers say are certainly there? One of the Principal Investigators for the NASA Viking biology team was Dr. Gilbert V. Levin who invented and built the Viking Labeled Release Experiment. His experiment tested the soil of Mars nine times at two different landing sites under different temperature regimes and environmental conditions. All his data point to microbes metabolizing a nutrient solution and giving off an indicative radioactive CO2 gas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sadly, the Beagle 2 lander failed to communicate from the surface of Mars.

Humans Started Using Fire Habitually 350,000 Years Ago, Researchers Claim

Two years ago the team at UNESCO declared the cave to have “universal value” because of its documentation of human history dating back to half a million years. The site allowed researchers to precisely document how the use of fire by humans evolved over a lengthy period of time.

Researchers examined the caves sediment layers and found that most flints were not burned in layers that were older than 350,000 years old. The flints, characterized by cracking, red or black coloration began regularly showing up 350,000 years ago. The group found small round depressions where fragments called pot lids flaked off the stone, indicating exposure to fire.

Big food corporations committing massive organic fraud - investigation

Expected to reach an estimated $35 billion in profits this year, the organic market has become attractive to food companies on all sides of the spectrum, opening up the door for potential abuses.

The USDA fails to prosecute violators due to giant corporations' lobbyists pressuring the agency to "favor their preferred industrial model of food production," according to Mark Kastel, the Senior Farm Policy Analyst at The Cornucopia Institute.

Nasa finds evidence of 'life on Mars'

Evidence of life on Mars could have been found by Nasa's Curiosity Rover.

One of the instruments on the robot found mysterious spikes of methane that cannot easily be explained by geology or other theories. Scientists can’t be sure what is causing the spikes, but it is possible that it could be very small, bacteria-like living organisms.

If the gas is coming from living, breathing microbes then it would mark one of the biggest discoveries in history.

Scientists have said that the rover now has to test and re-test the possibility of life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1976 the Viking Landers carried two different experiments to detect life. The first took a sample of Martian soil and dropped it into a generic nutrient solution tagged with a radioactive isotope and waited for radioactive gas to be released by metabolic processes. This experiment showed a positive result.

The second experiment was a gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer that heated a sample of Martian soil to cause large organic molecules to leave the soil and be drawn into a mass spectrometer, but unlike the inorganic mass spectrometer the heat was kept low enough to not cause the molecules themselves to come apart. This experiment returned a negative for the organic molecules it was designed to detect.

NASA was faced with one positive and one negative result. Most of us sitting at those consoles were convinced the positive needed to be given priority.

NASA was under a huge amount of public pressure over the issue of life on Mars. In particular the Buy-bull bangers were adamant that there could not possibly be life on Mars because the Bible did not mention it, and life on other planets meant Earth was not special in the eyes of whatever gods were being prayed to. Some of the controllers were getting death threats from fanatics like the Children of God. The post-Apollo "New" NASA was already entrenched. The scientists with the PhDs were no longer in control, but political appointees with MBAs ran the show, and so a political decision was made to ignore the positive result, rely on the negative, and declare that Viking had not found any life on Mars at all. That placated the masses at what we all felt was the expense of the truth.

Now, years later, subsequent probes to Mars have discovered a high amount of perchlorate in the Martian soil. In the presence of heat, perchlorate will decompose organic molecules. So the Viking organic mass spectrometer was destroying the organic molecules before it ever had a chance to detect them. That means the negative result was bogus data and can be discarded. That leaves just one positive result.

In subsequent years, other scientists have re-examined the Viking data and come to the conclusion that we did indeed find life on Mars.

And before anyone shouts, "Oh no, NASA would never hide such an important find", please recall that when Marco Polo returned from China he was promptly locked away in a dungeon by the Dominicans on the orders of the church, who thought that their control over Europe would be threatened by public awareness of a great civilization to the East that had never heard of Jesus. Eventually, word of Marco Polo's discoveries leaked out and he was released.

There is no question that confirmation of extraterrestrial life will be a socially transformative event. Humans might decide to put down their weapons of war and unite to find our just who is out there. For those governments dependent on war, that is a huge threat to their power and ample motive to bias their assessment of the Viking results towards the negative.

We started Babes Against Biotech in response to the blatant financial ties between elected officials and the agrochemical biotech companies poisoning the Hawaiian islands. Monsanto, Dow, BASF, Syngenta and DuPont/Pioneer use Hawai’i as an open air laboratory to test genetically engineered crop seeds for export. In developing pesticide resistant Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs,) these multi-national companies create zero local food sending profits off island, while exposing our communities to obscene amounts of restricted and general use pesticides up to ten times the national average.

Yet even though hard evidence exists to warrant a full re-examination of the basic assumption of the expanding universe, our science classes and TV programs still promote the "Big Bang" view, just as the erroneous theory of Aristotle continued to be promoted even after Galileo proved it wrong, because one theory fits into a theology, and the other does not.

Man's progress is not measured by the reaches of his science but by the limits of his superstition. The truth is known. But the truth is unpopular.

U.S. Attorneys General Form Secret Alliance To Help Energy Companies

Major energy companies have effectively created a secret law firm of conservative attorneys general to persuade Washington lawmakers to gut environmental regulations, according to an investigation by the New York Times. In return, these senior government officials have received millions of dollars to help them win political campaigns.

Lead Developer of HPV Vaccines Comes Clean, Warns Parents & Young Girls It’s All A Giant Deadly Scam

Dr. Diane Harper was a leading expert responsible for the Phase II and Phase III safety and effectiveness studies which secured the approval of the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines, Gardasil™ and Cervarix™. Dr. Harper also authored many of the published, scholarly papers about the vaccines. She is now the latest in a long string of experts who are pressing the red alert button on the devastating consequences and irrelevancy of these vaccines. Dr. Harper made her surprising confession at the 4th International Converence on Vaccination which took place in Reston, Virginia. Her speech, which was originally intended to promote the benefits of the vaccines, took a 180-degree turn when she chose instead to clean her conscience about the deadly vaccines so she “could sleep at night”.

Ebola vaccine trial suspended for checks after joint pains

A clinical trial of an Ebola vaccine has been suspended in all 59 volunteers in Geneva a week early “as a measure of precaution” after four patients complained of joint pains in hands and feet, the University of Geneva hospital said.

“They are all fine and being monitored regularly by the medical team leading the study,” it said on Thursday.

Did Deadly Gamma-Ray Burst Cause a Mass Extinction on Earth?

A gamma-ray burst, the most powerful kind of explosion known in the universe, may have triggered a mass extinction on Earth within the past billion years, researchers say. These deadly outbursts could help explain the so-called Fermi paradox, the seeming contradiction between the high chance of alien life and the lack of evidence for it, scientists added.

"This may be an explanation, or at least a partial one, to what is called the Fermi paradox or the 'Big Silence,'" said lead study author Tsvi Piran, a physicist at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. "Why we haven't encountered advanced civilizations so far?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With all due apologies to Professor Stephen Hawking, I rather doubt any alien civilization that has achieved interstellar travel would find Earth and its inhabitants to be of any interest. It is human vanity alone that creates the image of aliens just itching to cross the vast distances between stars to admire (or invade) us. While Fermi was aware that Einstein's General Relativity established the speed of light as an unbreakable limit, Fermi, like so many Star Trek fans would later do, assumed that someone would find a way around that limit. But science fiction is always presented as people just like us, only with superior technology. Indeed Gene Roddenberry's "elevator pitch" for Star Trek was "Wagon Train to the stars", derived from the successful series "Wagon Train" that showed contemporary people solving contemporary problems but set comfortably remote in the old west so as not to offend anyone. But the historical reality is that each advance in technology changes us; our awareness, our behavior, our perceptions. An alien civilization advanced enough to leap between the stars will have so little in common with us that contact becomes pointless. Do you stop and visit every anthill you pass as you drive to Las Vegas? Of course not; you have far more important things to be doing.

That being said, there is another possible solution to the Fermi paradox aside from the very real issue of gamma ray bursts. And that is or tinkering with the code of life itself. Sooner or later every advanced civilization will achieve the ability to rewrite their genetic programming, and if our own early efforts are any measure, they will make mistakes, possibly ones leading to their own extinction (as could become the case with the Epicyte gene). This is a crisis point that every advanced civilization will encounter as they evolve, and precious few may survive it.

German Poultry Industry Giant Returns to GMO-Free Production

Wiesenhof’s U-turn comes just 10 months after the German Poultry Association (ZDG) unilaterally declared that it was stopping using GM-free animal feed, following similar moves by other associations in England and Denmark. The reasons provided for the step after over a decade of GMO-free feeding were an alleged shortage of GMO-free soya, the risk of contamination, and the associated legal uncertainty.

VETERAN FALSELY CONVICTED BY LYING JUDGE

A mineral is not a drug; and, since David kept the minerals in their pure form, the FDA and “Big Pharma” could not stop him from selling them. But it was within their power to falsely accuse him of mislabeling his products – a felony. Whether he mislabeled or not wasn’t their real motivation. He became a force they could not control. David, like many veterans today, has been persecuted by his own government – a government that he, like other veterans supported unconditionally when they were in the service. (So what happened to reciprocal support for veterans today?)

A Case Of Mistaken Identity Sends Healthy Boy To An Ebola Ward

As part of Sierra Leone's broader effort to contain the deadly Ebola virus, the country opened a new ambulance dispatch center in September in the capital, Freetown. Along with a new Ebola hotline, the center is considered an important step forward in the war on Ebola.

But on the center's second day of operation, a series of errors put the life of an apparently healthy 14-year-old boy at risk.

Why flu shots are the greatest medical fraud in history

As one of the very few independent voices willing to stand up against the scientific dogma of our modern medical regime, I've long felt a need to communicate the dangers of flu shots to the public so that people can have better information to prevent vaccine injuries and save lives.

This doesn't mean I'm opposed to the theory of vaccination, by the way. In fact, I'm the author of A Blueprint for Safer Vaccines, an audio guide to saving lives and preventing vaccine injuries and deaths.

Ebola diary: 'There are reports of people disappearing into the forest to die'

“Ebola is a hidden killer. You can’t count it until people are infected with symptoms, by which time they have infected other people. So cases will be under-reported.

“There is a second fact compounding this. People are afraid to report their numbers to the government. They are afraid to call the helpline. They are afraid they will be taken away to treatment centres and never see their families again. There are reports of people disappearing into the forest because they’d rather die with their family than be taken into a treatment site.”

Obamacare Creates Boom for Federal Contractors

The new money is buying medical-record software, insurance websites, claims processing, data analysis, computer system overhauls, consumer education and consulting expertise to control costs and identify fraud.

True, it’s a fraction of the $200 billion-plus the Pentagon spent on planes, bombs and other purchases in fiscal 2014. But thanks largely to automatic cuts set in 2011, defense contracting has dipped by more than a third since 2008 despite continuing conflict in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

Sierra Leone Overtakes Liberia in Number of Ebola Cases

The World Health Organization says new cases of Ebola continue to rise in West Africa, and it says Sierra Leone has overtaken Liberia as the country with the highest number of cases.

Data published Monday by the WHO shows that Sierra Leone has recorded 7,798 cases of the deadly virus, indicating that the disease is now spreading fastest in that country.

Infection rates for Ebola are decreasing in Liberia, which now has just over 7,700 cases. Liberia still has more Ebola deaths than any other country.

Whooping cough outbreak at Massachusetts high school affected only vaccinated students

Unvaccinated children are supposedly the cause, according to state health officials, of a recent whooping cough outbreak that occurred in the posh Cape Cod area of Massachusetts. But as reported by CBS Boston, all of the children affected by the outbreak were already vaccinated, proving once again that vaccines don't really work.

Some 15 children at Falmouth High School reportedly came down with the respiratory illness, which also goes by the name pertussis, sparking a wave of panic about a corresponding increase in vaccine exemptions. But as usual, nobody affected by the outbreak was unvaccinated, and no matter how hard the media tries to spin the issue, those who were vaccinated were not protected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Indeed the inescapable conclusion is that the vaccine CAUSED the illness!

Hard Times in a Boom Town: Pennsylvanians Describe Costs of Fracking

Expectations ran high when the boom first began. In 2010, 60 Minutes introduced a new word to the national media – “shale-ionaires,” or landowners who made millions simply by leasing their land for drilling.

“Once a well is built and producing, royalty checks start popping up in the mailbox,” explained 60 Minutes anchor Leslye Stahl. “It can last years and add up to many more millions.”

But even in the most productive shale play in the country, these early hopes have often been dashed, with some landowners reporting that leasing has already wound up costing them money.

Sierra Leone Baffled by Doctors' Ebola Deaths

Sierra Leone’s chief medical officer has said he is baffled by the deaths of three doctors from Ebola over a three-day period.

Dr. Brima Kargbo said a survey conducted jointly with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that 70 percent of infections did not come from either the country’s Ebola holding centers or treatment facilities.

Kargbo said Dr. Aiah Solomon Konoyeima died Saturday, becoming the 10th Sierra Leonean physician to die of the virus.

He said Konoyeima was the third doctor to die from Ebola since Friday.

New Study Claims US Shale Gas Quantities Grossly Exaggerated

US government estimates of the amount of natural gas that can be extracted by fracking may be far too optimistic, according to a new study by the University of Texas (UT) at Austin.

In 2013, the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) issued a report saying that, according to its analysis, shale wells, which require fracking to release their gas, would be productive at current levels for “over 30 years,” that is, at least until 2040.

Ebola Czar Ron Klain to Return to Private Sector

After less than six months on the job, Ron Klain, the former White House adviser appointed by President Barack Obama to handle the nation's response to the threat of Ebola, will return to his private sector job in March.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Klain's mission was to get Ebola out of the media ahead of the mid-term elections. He succeeded. Seen any Ebola coverage in the corporate media lately, like the fact that there are currently 1400 patients under Ebola watch in the US?

When Big pharma has their new whiz-bang vaccines and treatments ready to sell next spring, they will WANT Ebola all over the news and that is why Klain is no longer needed.

Sierra Leone said Friday that between 80 and 100 new cases of Ebola are being reported every day and the country now hardest-hit by the deadly virus desperately needs over 1,000 beds to treat victims.

Sierra Leone's Finance Minister Kaifalah Marah painted a grim picture to the U.N. Economic and Social Council Friday of the challenges facing his West African nation which failed to meet a World Health Organization interim goal of isolating 70 percent of Ebola patients and safely burying 70 percent of victims by Dec. 1.

Flu Shot Fail: Vaccine Chiefs Forced to Admit it Won’t Work

Any decent, honest physician will tell you that the the seasonal Flu mutates like mad, and that there are many dozens of different strains making people sick, and when Big Pharma rolls out its annual Flu vaccine – it simply cannot protest you against most of these strains floating around.

“There’s a little bit of a guessing game each year. Sometimes it’s not a good match,” admits Dr. Alicia Fry, a physician with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention’s Influenza Division.

That’s right – it’s one big guessing game.

But that’s not the worst of it – the vaccine contain some ingredients which could cause health damage…

Illegal pro-GMO observers accused of disrupting Oregon labeling law vote count

Amid a recount of Oregon’s ballot initiative over labeling of genetically-modified foods, the pro-agribusiness contingent, known as the “No on 92 Coalition,” tried to illegally place out-of-state election observers in at least four counties, opponents say.

The statewide vote on Measure 92 - which, if passed, would demand genetically-engineered ingredients to be labeled as such - is subject to a hand recount given the original, computerized tally showed that the initiative failed by just 812 votes, within the mandatory-recount margin. The recount began on Tuesday and will continue through Dec. 9.

The campaign over Measure 92 was the most expensive in the state’s history, as powerful biotechnology firms like Monsanto and DuPont pumped about $21 million against the initiative, while supporters culled about $9 million.

ObamaCare incentivizes hiring amnestied illegals to the tune of $3000 each

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about ObamaCare - aside from the fact that it’s an abject disaster in terms of meeting its stated goals - it’s that the unintended consequences of its passage just keep piling up. Sure, conservatives warned of the chaos that would stem from the Dems’ “signature legislation,” but even those of us who were sounding the alarm are amazed at how it keeps managing to fail in new, exciting, ways.

Today we’re learning that the law actually incentivizes corporations to hire the millions of illegals who are currently enjoying Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty order - instead of hiring actual, legal, U.S. citizens. In fact, under the ACA, companies who hire an amnestied illegal can dodge a $3,000 penalty that they would have had to pay if they’d hired a citizen.

Breastfed, Homebirthed Babies Taken Away From Parents For Not Using Hospital

All three of their babies have been taken away from them and placed in the care of strangers. Levi was 10 months old when his mother, local singer and songwriter Erica May Rengo, gave birth to his twin brother and sister, at their home in Bellingham, Washington.

“Our birth was glorious,” she said, and the twins were reportedly healthy, full-term babies, who had no problem quickly figuring out how to breastfeed. The little family was overjoyed until CPS stepped in to “help.”

It is another medical kidnapping according to the parents. The Rengos have chosen a wholesome, holistic lifestyle, based in their Christian faith. But CPS has stepped in to override the parents’ decisions. Now Erica and Cleave are living what they call a nightmare, separated from their children for reasons that don’t make any sense at all to them.

An army of 15,000 robots is ready to roll as Amazon.com prepares for Cyber Monday, its biggest order day of the year.

Cold Fusion and Beyond - Dr. Eugene Mallove

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this interview was filmed in October 2000, Dr. Eugene Mallove was Editor-In-Chief of the magazine, Infinite Energy and Director of the New Energy Research Laboratory in New Hampshire. "He held two MIT degrees in Aeronautical-Astronautical Engineering and a Harvard Doctorate in Environmental Health Sciences (Air Pollution Control Engineering). He had broad experience in high- technology engineering at companies including Hughes Research Labs, TASC (The Analytic Science Corporation) and MIT Lincoln Laboratory. "Dr. Mallove was the Chief Science Writer at MIT when the cold fusion story broke in March 1989, and he resigned in 1991 after his requested investigation into the altered cold fusion data at MIT (which helped to discredit the whole subject) was not properly done." Mallove's book, 'Fire from Ice' detailed the 1989 report of table- top cold fusion from Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann at the University of Utah. Among other things, the book claims that the team did produce "greater-than-unity" output energy in an experiment successfully replicated on several occasions, but that the results were suppressed through an organized campaign of ridicule from mainstream physicists, including some at his own alma mater, MIT.
