The White House Just Blamed Bitcoin for America’s Opioid Crisis

By Graham Smith

The opioid epidemic is the new devil Bitcoin is being blamed for inflaming, to be added to the already long list of heinous crimes crypto is supposedly responsible for, like terrorism, money laundering, and trafficking. While it’s painfully clear that the U.S. dollar is a much more common tool for these unethical and illicit activities, that doesn’t stop the powers that be from continuing their propagandistic assault on financial freedom — ignoring their own central role in creating these massive problems by pumping up the artificial monopolies that peddle them, and outlawing less dangerous and non-addictive solutions...

Report Reveals Number Of Environmental Activists Killed Each Week

By John Vibes

As images of the Amazon burning were shared across social media this week, the world is turning its attention to the battle between indigenous people and the powerful interests who are seeking to take their land for financial gain. It is important to note that many of the images shared in the wake of the recent fires were actually falsely attributed; however, there is a very real crisis taking place in the Amazon, and in other tropical regions throughout the world.

Last month, a group of gold miners invaded a remote Amazonian village that was inhabited by the Waiãpi tribe and killed their leader, sending the rest of the tribe to flee in terror. Sadly, this is no isolated incident...

Law Firm Investigates Smartphone RF Levels Exceeding Federal Safety Limits and Coverup By Telecoms

By B.N. Frank

The Chicago Tribune conducted an investigation of various smartphone models and found that many exceed federal RF safety limits. Thanks to law firm Fegan Scott for starting their own investigation.

U.S. safety limits for cell phones were established in 1996. They don’t apply to today’s cell phones or other wireless devices. They also don’t apply to the way most people are exposed to wireless radiation emitting sources either...

The Gov’t Gave Her Son a Sex Change Without Parental Consent, And Other Weekly News from The Twilight Zone

Ginkgo Biloba May Aid in Treating Type 2 Diabetes

The extract of the leaves of Ginkgo biloba, a popular dietary supplement, may offer some therapeutic benefits in fighting Type 2 diabetes, according to a study co-authored by a researcher at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine.

“In diabetic rats Ginkgo biloba had a very good effect on the beta cells of Langerhans–cells in the pancreas responsible for insulin secretion–by creating a restorative effect similar to what we see in healthy non-diabetic rats,” says Helal Fouad Hetta, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow and scientist in the UC Division of Digestive Diseases.

Venezuela’s Health Care System Is in Shambles, but Markets Are Already Responding

By Byron Carson

Hospitals are supposed to help people, not become a source of their ailment. Generally, hospitals do help people. According to the data and graphing tools of Gapminder, rates of child mortality and malnourishment are negatively correlated with the number of physicians per 1,000 people and the number of hospital beds per 1,000 people. Similarly, the percentage of a population surviving to age 65 increases with the number of physicians and hospital beds.

Chicago Tribune Reports Various Smartphones Substantially Exceed Outdated Gov’t Safety Limits

By B.N. Frank

Those of us who are old enough remember that there were no “Smart” phones in 1996. There were cell phones for making calls — that’s it. Most people didn’t own them. Parents certainly weren’t giving them to their kids.

U.S. safety limits don’t apply to today’s cell phones and other wireless devices. They don’t apply to the way most people are exposed to them either. It’s not surprising that the Chicago Tribune discovered that various smartphones exceed the FCC safety limits. What’s unfortunate is that these limits have offered no protection to any of us for many years now...

Medical Destruction: It’s Not Just a Conspiracy Theory

By Jon Rappoport

We’re now living in a time of accusations. A public official or mainstream press outlet doesn’t like what they’re hearing, and they say, “Well, that’s just another conspiracy theory.”

And then know-nothing people breathe a sigh of relief and move on. “Thank goodness THAT’S NOT REAL.”

If enough authorities repeat “conspiracy theory,” the truth goes begging.

In this case, the facts have arrived. What’s missing is widespread knowledge of those facts. The mainstream press is a cover-up operation...

Study Says BPA is Causing Severe Hormone Imbalances in 80% of Teens

By John Vibes

According to new research, four out of five teenagers in the UK are having their hormones disrupted by chemicals found in plastics. Experts believe that the chemical responsible for these widespread hormone issues is bisphenol A, which is more commonly known as BPA. This chemical is often used to make plastics, and can be found in products that come into contact with food.

Since this chemical can mimic the sex hormone estrogen, it has been found to lower sperm count in men. The chemical has also been linked to a variety of illnesses including breast and prostate cancer...

After Covering Notre Dame Fire Non-Stop, Media Silent as the Amazon Burns for Weeks

By Matt Agorist

When the famous Notre Dame Cathedral erupted in flames last April, images of the blaze were plastered across television and computer screens alike. For days on end, mainstream media networks around the world devoted round-the-clock coverage to this burning church. While the burning of such a historical place was undoubtedly a tragic incident, the coverage devoted to it versus the coverage — or, rather, lack there of — given to the Amazon rain forest fires is insulting.

After the fires in Paris, donors from all over Europe came together and pledged millions to rebuild it and the work started almost immediately. Consequently, the Amazon has been on fire for three weeks, and there are no calls for unity, no 24-hour media coverage, and no one is pledging anything to help stop it. In fact, if you search Google News for “Amazon,” the first ten stories are about Jeff Bezos. And, if you look for “Amazon Fire” you get ads for the tablet...

American Apocalypse: The Government’s Plot to Destabilize the Nation Is Working

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out … without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.” — H. L. Mencken

The U.S. government is working hard to destabilize the nation.

No, this is not another conspiracy theory.

Although it is certainly not far-fetched to suggest that the government might be engaged in nefarious activities that run counter to the best interests of the American people, doing so will likely brand me a domestic terrorist under the FBI’s new classification system.

Impeachment Time

It is astonishing to observe some Americans twisting themselves into pretzels so they can continue to make excuses to explain the bizarre behavior of President Donald Trump on the world stage. The line most commonly heard is that he has “kept us out of new wars.” The reality is somewhat different. He has kept us in old wars in Afghanistan and Syria that he could have ended while also needlessly ratcheting up tension with countries like Russia, Venezuela, Iran and China that could easily escalate into armed conflict. The situation with Moscow is particularly dangerous as President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly warned that his country’s defense doctrine includes going nuclear if there is an attack on Russia by a superior force.

Yemen: Coalition Warships Attack Fishing Boats

(Beirut) – Saudi-led coalition naval forces have carried out at least five deadly attacks on Yemeni fishing boats since 2018, Human Rights Watch said today. Coalition warships and helicopters have been involved in attacks that killed at least 47 Yemeni fishermen, including 7 children, and the detention of more than 100 others, some of whom were tortured in custody in Saudi Arabia.

The coalition attacks on fishermen and fishing boats appear to be deliberate attacks on civilians and civilian objects in violation of the laws of war. Coalition officials who ordered or carried out the attacks or tortured detainees are most likely responsible for war crimes.

US Navy ‘ready’ for Venezuela mission, says a top commander

The US Navy is ready to “do what needs to be done” on Venezuela, a top commander said on Monday, as America ramps up pressure on the crisis-wracked country.

US Southern Command chief Admiral Craig Faller made the remarks in Rio de Janeiro as the United States kicked off its annual UNITAS maritime exercise involving nine Latin American countries as well as the UK, Portugal and Japan.

“I won’t speak to details of what we’re planning and what we’re doing, but we remain ready to implement policy decisions and we remain on the balls of our feet,” Faller told reporters.

China to build military base near Chabahar?

BEIJING: US President Donald Trump’s recent outburst on Pakistan will further boost economic and defence ties between Beijing and Islamabad, including China acquiring a Pakistani military base close to Iran’s Chabahar port, an official media report said on Friday.
Trump’s January 1 Twitter attack against Pakistan where he accused it of providing safe havens to terrorists appears to be helping boost already close ties between Pakistan and China, a report in the state-run Global Times said. It attributed Islamabad’s decision to allow Chinese currency in bilateral trade and financing transactions as China has stepped up its investments in the $50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

An interesting sequence of events has recently taken place that makes many wonder what Russia’s up to in the Iranian port of Chabahar. It’s widely known that Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, and India are cooperating on the North-South Transport Corridor (NSTC) project to integrate each of their economies more closely together, with Chabahar being this initiative’s terminal port in connecting India to the other three and also Central Asia.

Seattle residents blame inefficient elected officials for homeless problem, say they've 'lost faith' in system

The District of Criminals bears most of the responsibility for the destruction of America and its' People.

SEATTLE -- The richest man in America calls Seattle home. So do thousands of others who are forced onto the streets because they are too poor, too addicted or too detached from reality. At night, the city's homeless sleep wherever they can -- in tents crammed in parking garages, in parks or under highway overpasses. Some feel victimized by a society that has moved on without them. Others feel preyed upon by politicians eager to push pet projects and scattered initiatives that make themselves look good but do little else. Sick of stepping over used condoms, broken lighters and needles, residents say they are heartbroken to see the city they've loved turn into a dangerous, drug-infested den of filth and human misery.

If you use “regular” sunscreen, you are poisoning your blood with cancer-causing chemicals

Studies have found that people who have low vitamin D levels are at increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, respiratory illnesses and cancer. They are also more likely to die earlier than people with optimal vitamin D levels.

Now, a recent study by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) raises another concern about the use of mainstream sunscreens. The research, which was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), found that four of the chemicals most commonly used in commercial sunscreens are absorbed directly into the bloodstream, where they can linger for up to seven days, reaching levels significantly higher than those deemed to be safe by the FDA.

Study Confirms Cannabis is Effective Natural Medicine to Significantly Alleviate Pain

Using the largest database of real-time recordings of the effects of common and commercially available cannabis products in the United States (U.S.), researchers at The University of New Mexico (UNM) found strong evidence that cannabis can significantly alleviate pain, with the average user experiencing a three-point drop in pain suffering on a 0-10 point scale immediately following cannabis consumption.

With a mounting opioid epidemic at full force and relatively few alternative pain medications available to the general public, scientists found conclusive support that cannabis is very effective at reducing pain caused by different types of health conditions, with relatively minimal negative side effects...

CBD is proving to be an effective natural treatment for depression

In 2018, research published in Molecular Neurobiology found that CBD supplementation induced long-term antidepressant effects in animal models.

According to the researchers, a single dose of CBD yielded detectable anti-depressive effects within one hour of administration — and the benefits of this single dose lasted an entire week. Study leader Samia Joca, from Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies and University of São Paulo, and their team, have authored two other studies demonstrating the antidepressant benefits of CBD.

In a previous study, the team found that CBD essentially helps the brain “heal” from depression.

Tom turned 60 recently, and he’s thinking about retirement. After two decades of cracking eggs and frying bacon at his restaurant, he’s ready to spend more time with his family. And fortunately for Tom, he’s sitting on an extremely valuable asset: his real estate. Tom’s diner is located in downtown Denver in an area that has been heavily redeveloped.

In fact, a local real estate developer offered Tom nearly $5 million for his land; it’s an ideal spot to build condominiums given how popular downtown Denver has become.

After hearing about the deal, five local residents filed an application with the city to have Tom’s Diner declared a historic landmark...

Portland residents, business owners want city officials to 'fix' homeless problem

PORTLAND, Ore. – In the summer of 2019, Fox News embarked on an ambitious project to chronicle the toll progressive policies have had on the homeless crisis in four West Coast cities: Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Portland, Ore. In each city, we saw a lack of safety, sanitation and civility. Residents, the homeless and advocates say they've lost faith in their elected officials' ability to solve the issue. Most of the cities have thrown hundreds of millions of dollars at the problem only to watch it get worse. This is what we saw in Portland.

Is White Genocide Possible?

Paul Craig Roberts

Readers agree that the demonization of white people is unfair and divisive. Many report that they have experienced reverse discrimination, and they expect discrimination against whites, such as the announced anti-white policy of the New York public school system, to worsen as the media’s demonization of white people escalates. A few readers noted that both the Jewish and Armenian genocides are disputed. They asked if there are any historical episodes of genocides. A few others noted that even when white Americans become a minority, it will be a large and numerous minority and, thus, too numerous for a genocide.

BIG CITIES THAT ARE STRUGGLING WITH HEPATITIS, TYPHUS, MOUNTAINS OF HUMAN FECES AND MILLIONS OF RATS ARE ALL RUN BY DEMOCRATS

SOURCE: MICHAEL SNYDER
Major cities all over America are being transformed into rotting, decaying, disease-infested hellholes, and it doesn’t exactly take a genius to figure out why this is happening. Our actions are the product of our belief systems, and the major U.S. cities where the conditions are the worst are always dominated by a particular political ideology. If the citizens of those major cities like the results that they are currently getting, then they should just continue to do what they have been doing. But if they want real change, then those citizens are going to have to be willing to make fundamentally different choices than they have been making in the past.

Today, large cities all over the country are dealing with mountains of feces, millions of rats and horrific diseases that we once had completely under control. Let’s start our tour in Philadelphia, where cases of Hepatitis A are starting to spread like wildfire…

Asa native San Franciscan, I have watched the devolution of a once-beautiful, once proud, and diverse city, collapse to the point of no return.

Trump’s Anti-Iran Warrant

Time and again, hard evidence shows the US is a nation run by hawkish right-wing extremists, dismissive of the rule of law and democratic values they abhor and don’t tolerate.

Operating exclusively by their own rules, they maintain that UN Charter principles and other international law applies to other nations, not imperial USA.

All nations the US doesn’t control are on its target list for regime change, part of its longstanding plot to rule the world unchallenged, control its resources, and create ruler-serf societies everywhere — enforced by Pentagon-run NATO, operating as a global police force.

Since its 1979 revolution, ending a generation of US-installed fascist dictatorship, Iran has been a key target to transform back to US client state status — by brute force it that’s what it takes.

Tommy the tortoise is celebrating her birthday and is now the world’s oldest living pet.

She has survived two world wars, six different monarchs and 21 US Presidents.

Born in 1898, Tommy has been in Sheila Floris’s family since 1909 when her grandmother Margaret Cloonan bought her for £1 – when the tortoise was already 11 years old.

Sheila claims that Tommy’s longevity can be attributed to her healthy diet of garden weeds and plenty of love and care from her owners over the last 121 years.

The Saudis Learn the Term “Asymmetric Response”

The Saudis just learned that some moments in history show their significance as they unfold. Iran shooting down a U.S. Global Hawk stealth drone and President Trump refusing his war-hawk cabinet in retaliating militarily is one of them.

I said then and still maintain that this was a turning point in the history of the world.

Any retaliation by the U.S. would be catastrophic for the world economy. It would unleash a regional conflict on multiple fronts which would not be any kind of controlled theater…

… That for all the might of the U.S. military and financial empire, its weaknesses are deep enough that even a relatively weak military and economy like Iran’s can stop it all dead cold because of basic things like geography, logistics and simple human resolve.

Images show Iran satellite launch looms despite US criticism

Read the comments. It would appear that many Americans are friendly towards Iran.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran appears to be preparing another satellite launch after twice failing this year to put one in orbit, despite U.S. accusations that the Islamic Republic's program helps it develop ballistic missiles.

Satellite images of the Imam Khomeini Space Center in Iran's Semnan province this month show increased activity at the site, as heightened tensions persist between Washington and Tehran over its collapsing nuclear deal with world powers.

The Way Not to Fix Education, Housing, and Health Care

By Daniel J. Boudreaux

As long as the reality of human existence remains on the imperfect side of paradise — mired in scarcity, often unpredictable, and always carrying at least a small risk of calamity for each individual as well as for groups — some people will complain about the state of reality. Indeed, as human welfare improves, such complaints grow more frequent and fervent. If nearly everyone’s life is miserable, and if such misery is all that we know and remember, we accept misery as an unalterable condition of existence, much as we accept as unalterable our inability to fly by flapping our arms.

But as the masses have become materially more prosperous, the possibility of even greater prosperity has become more evident. And so any shortfall of the masses’ current prosperity from what can be imagined or plausibly foreseen strikes many as an intolerable condition that should be remedied forthwith.

The Enemies of Our Civilization

The Left is the most dangerous ideological phenomenon in the history of mankind. It glorifies poverty, the total state, and mass death. The Left wants to destroy Western civilization, based on Christianity, the traditional family, and the free market.

It’s no coincidence that Communists killed more than 100 million people, not including their wars.

By the way, young people are not taught about the evils of the Left, only its myths. They do not believe there were gigantic atrocities in the Lenin-Stalin Soviet Union, nor Mao’s China. Socialism is good! Everyone is better off under socialism. Everyone is Equal.

Hospital Reduces Children’s Exposure to WiFi Radiation Because They Are More Vulnerable to It

By B.N. Frank

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other health experts warn that kids are more vulnerable than adults to exposure. In fact, no safe level of exposure has even been determined for children or pregnant women. This is why many health experts, parents and teachers in the U.S. and around the world have been trying to get schools to replace WiFi with wired internet.

One hospital is determined to reduce exposure to pediatric patients AND encourage parents to reduce their children’s exposure everywhere else...

Another Reason To End Fluoridation: Fluoride Consumption During Pregnancy Lowers IQ Of Children

By Aaron Kesel

An influential medical research Journal the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a very interesting study that links fluoride consumption during pregnancy to lower IQs in children.

The study funded by the Canadian government and the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Science, was conducted using 512 pregnant women from six Canadian cities. The scientists then measured their exposure in various different ways including – analyzing the amount of fluoride in their urine; looking at how much tap water and tea they drank; and comparing the fluoride concentration in the community drinking water.

Then, after the women had birth and the children were 3 or 4, the researchers administered IQ tests to the kids...

Study shows Ritalin and other ADHD drugs change the structure of children’s brains

Researchers don’t know what this finding could mean in the long term, but it’s clear that changing the development of a child’s brain structure is far from natural. The researchers believe that the decision to take these meds should not be made lightly and that only those who are significantly affected by the illness on a regular basis should turn to medication.

Study Links Fluoride Consumption During Pregnancy to Lower IQ in Children

The study, published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics on Monday, found that increased levels of fluoride exposure during pregnancy were associated with declines in IQ in children. Previous research has made similar findings, but this is the first such study to evaluate the effect of fluoride on populations receiving what the US Public Health Service considers optimal levels of 0.7 milligrams of fluoride per liter of drinking water, such as in the United States and Canada.

Threat to kill alleged over $10,000 bet that the Earth is flat

A $10,000 bet between two Queenstown men over whether the Earth is flat or round resulted in one being charged with threatening to kill the other.

Jamie Mathew Sutherland, 36, car groomer, of Frankton, denied threatening to kill Louie Lanz in Queenstown on February 14 - an incident which resulted from a dinner the pair had attended a couple of months earlier, during which the bet was made.

Giving evidence in the Queenstown District Court before Judge Bernadette Farnan this morning, Lanz, a tennis instructor, said the pair had known each other since primary school and over dinner in Queenstown he spoke about ''the flat Earth, because I believe it's flat''.

"I said 'I will bet you $10,000 it's flat'.

"Mr Sutherland quickly jumped on that bet - we shook hands and then he said 'you owe me $10,000'.''

World-first LSD trial in Auckland could open door to its use as medicine

Auckland University is looking to trial the effects of small doses of LSD on healthy people, which could eventually pave the way for its potential use as a medicine.

Its application comes on the back of overseas research showing promising results from using psychedelic substances LSD and psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, to treat conditions as diverse as PTSD, existential distress in palliative patients and addiction to smoking.

The application for the world's first randomised-controlled trial of LSD microdosing, at Auckland University's Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, is seeking final approval and aims to start next year.

CNET Journalist Promotes 5G as Safe Even When Telecom Execs Say They Have No Evidence That It Is

By B.N. Frank

In February, the Telecom Industry gave congressional testimony that they have NO scientific evidence that exposure to 5G is safe. This being said, it’s always bizarre and annoying when journalists defend it.

CNET Science Editor Jackson Ryan must not have gotten that memo. Then again, maybe Jackson prefers living in a fantasy world remaining completely oblivious to any research that has already determined exposure to all sources of wireless radiation is harmful – not just 5G...

It looks like sobriety is having a moment in the spotlight, with drinking rates around the world on the decline – particularly among young people.

Mom Thrown in Jail, Her Child Stolen—for Successfully Treating Her Cancer with CBD Oil

By Matt Agorist

In the land of the free, parents whose children voluntarily wish to abstain from chemotherapy and have their parent’s consent, can and will be kidnapped and their parent jailed. This is exactly what is happening to Christina Dixon and her daughter Kylee—in spite of the fact that stopping chemo and using alternative treatment has worked.

“The only reason I’m in this position is because I stood up for my daughter’s life when she was on her last breath,” said Christina. “I’m literally getting punished for saving my daughter’s life.”...

Leprosy Persists in Los Angeles County, and Elsewhere

Just great! Biblical Diseases are back!

By Will Boggs MD

August 15, 2019

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

"Hansen's disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians," coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Asteroid shock: How asteroid Bennu revealed something NASA scientists weren't ready for

A BILLION dollar NASA space probe has reached a massive asteroid called Bennu – but astonishing new pictures taken from just above the surface have left the US science team very worried.

Because high resolution snaps show asteroid Bennu is actually made up of rocks, not sand as scientists initially predicted – and this poses a problem for the Osiris lander which is about to touch down on the surface. Indeed, the shocking reveal has stunned the world of science.

NASA's probe Osiris-REX has mapped the asteroid's unique surface ahead of next year's planned landing.

But the ship was loaded with tools to land on sand and collect a “beach-like sand substance” - the hyper rocky terrain has now thrown the scientists.

NASA chief Rich Burns said: “Although Osiris-REX was designed to collect a sample from an asteroid with a ‘beach-like’ area.”

American Capitalism Is Based on Plunder The plunder is getting worse

Capitalism is private monopoly,communism is government monopoly.
America is suppossed to be a Free Enterprise Country.
Capitalism,Communism and Fascism as well as Socialism are ALL gifts from ther International Banksters!

Paul Craig Roberts

American capitalism is based on plunder. With the continental USA plundered, American capitalism hoped to continue enriching itself by plundering Russia as it did under Yeltsin, carefully including the Russian “Atlanticist Integrationists” in the spoils in order to have support from the liberal, progressive forces in Russia for stripping Russia of its assets. But Putin more or less put a halt to the American/Israeli rape of Russia, although it still continues through the neoliberal economics that Harvard brainwashed into the Russian central bank and economics profession. Brainwashed Russian economists are the main reason Washington is able to punish a powerful country such as Russia with economic sanctions.
