Baltimore: A Legacy of Failed State Experiments : Anything Peaceful : Foundation for Economic Education

Baltimore: A Legacy of Failed State Experiments : Anything Peaceful : Foundation for Economic Education: What do all these policies have in common? They represent the fatal error, common for the better part of a century, of believing that policy elites can manage the social order better than the social order can manage itself. Only the ruling class can decide where and how people should live, how they will be educated, what they can buy and sell, the terms of labor contracts, what businesses come and go, and who gets to enter into certain occupations and the terms under which they may do so. The government would do it all: build and maintain the housing, provide the education, make the jobs, set the pay, enable the security, and administer the justice.... How many other cities will burn before we admit it? How much longer must we endure pious lectures by left-wing intellectual elites about how “we haven’t done enough,” as well as the angry brown-shirted bromides by right-wing pundits about how recalcitrants need more iron-fisted blows to the head? We are witnessing the terrible costs of a failed worldview that resulted in many failed states. What remains to us is the option to try what we should have done long ago: permit people to work out their problems for themselves, unmolested and unimpeded in the exercise of their human rights. They can and will take care of themselves.

The Chart that Could Undo the Healthcare System : Anything Peaceful : Foundation for Economic Education

The Chart that Could Undo the Healthcare System : Anything Peaceful : Foundation for Economic Education: "Part of this, Mr. Cowen observes, stems from well-meaning efforts to do more with education, government, and health care that instead seem to have backfired and left us with noncompetitive institutions closer to failing us than to serving us well.

With respect to healthcare, this chart gives us an indication of why these efforts are backfiring: The more an industry becomes like a regulated utility, the more administrators are required to enforce the regulations and administer the programs. And they, as well as the programs they administer, are expensive. All manner of distortions follow, and the costs of healthcare go up proportionally.... The trouble with any further healthcare reform is that a massive coalition of special interests in multiple sectors has formed as a husk around the entire industry — a care-tel, if you will — and they will be very difficult to dislodge."

TV2 Denmark documentary on HPV vaccine shows lives of young women ruined

Health Impact News Editor Comments:TV2 Denmark has done something no mainstream media network in the United States will dare to do: look into the controversial HPV vaccine that many have claimed has ruined the lives of so many young women, and publish an investigative report. In December of 2013 Katie Couric did a show on the HPV Gardasil Vaccine where she dared to interview the mother of a young woman who died shortly after receiving the vaccine. Couric's program was hardly pro-vaccine, as she gave both sides of the controversy, with a huge emphasis on the pharmaceutical side claiming the vaccine was safe, but she was viciously attacked by the mainstream media anyway and forced to apologize for even asking questions about the possible risks of the HPV vaccine. With such censorship so obvious in the U.S. mainstream media, it is refreshing to see the Danish media make this documentary available with English subtitles for the rest of the world to watch. Families and doctors are interviewed, and the tough questions are not censored. Similar to the U.S., these vaccine damaged girls can find no help from their government since the vaccine injuries are vigorously denied by their government, leaving them and their parents feeling "betrayed."

Monsanto sued in Los Angeles County for False Advertising on Glyphosate Claim

On April 21, 2015 a class action lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County, California against the Monsanto corporation. The suit alleges that Monsanto is guilty of false advertising by claiming that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, targets an enzyme only found in plants and not in humans or animals. Monsanto makes this claim to support the contention that glyphosate is harmless to humans. In the lawsuit, the argument is made that the targeted enzyme, EPSP synthase, is found in the microbiota which reside in our intestines and therefore this enzyme is found in humans and animals. It is further stated in the lawsuit that there are many human and animal health problems associated with the disruption of our intestinal microbes. Residents of California can become members of the class in this action.

France’s Intelligence Bill: legalising mass surveillance

The French government claims its new Intelligence Bill is defined in opposition to the American and British models – but this just doesn't hold once the text is examined. Quite the contrary.

During a rally against the new Intelligence Bill in Paris, April 2015. Demotix/Yann Korbi. All rights reserved. During a rally against the new Intelligence Bill in Paris, April 2015. Demotix/Yann Korbi. All rights reserved.

On 19 March , French Prime Minister Manuel Valls organised a press conference to announce the Intelligence Bill that his government had just adopted and was presenting to Parliament. Confronting the media, Valls sought to dismiss growing concerns that the bill, the contents of which had been leaked to the press a few days earlier, would undermine the right to privacy. “This has nothing to do with the generalised surveillance of citizens”, Valls said to journalists. He even went on to claim that the bill would “forbid” mass surveillance.

This posture came all the more naturally to the French Government as it has kept its head down and weathered the storm since the Snowden disclosures began almost two years ago. Even when documents exposing the cooperation between the French General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) and the NSA and other Five-Eyes agencies (the LUSTRE agreement) came to light, public officials either refrained from any comment or issued denials. Today, the Valls government is claiming that the bill is simply a matter of securing the legitimate intelligence collection practices of the French security services, which hitherto lacked a proper legal framework.

These reassurances, however, do not survive proper scrutiny. A close reading of the Bill shows that it authorises the government to engage in preventive surveillance of private communications and public spaces for a broad range of motives – from terrorism to economic espionage and the monitoring of social movements – without proper ex ante control. It also orchestrates the legal whitewashing of mass surveillance, and legalizes tools and policies that directly echo those of other surveillance superpowers, like the US, the UK or Germany. Three examples are particularly telling.

Black boxes: legalizing “plug-and-spy” surveillance devices

The most fiercely debated item of the bill relates to so-called Internet “black boxes” aimed at detecting terrorist threats. Article 2 makes provision for the Prime Minister to require telecom operators and online platforms to install technical devices on their infrastructure (networks or servers) that will use custom algorithms to detect suspicious online behaviour.

According to examples quoted by government ministers and high-ranking officials in the intelligence community, the goal is to detect the use of particular encryption protocols or web browsing habits. Though the government denies this is the case, there is every indication that these black boxes will deploy some kind of Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology.

From a British and American perspective, these black boxes are hardly news. In the UK, a similar provision was debated as early as 2000, and eventually subsumed in the Regulatory Investigative Powers Act, section 12. More recently, documents leaked by Mark Klein – a former AT&T employee turned whistleblower – revealed that the NSA had implemented DPI technologies to monitor Internet traffic on US soil.

Of course, the technology will be provided by the private sector. Mark Klein's documents showed the NSA's DPI gear was built by a division of Boeing. In France, a likely candidate to manufacture these black boxes is the home-grown Qosmos, a worldwide expert in DPI technology. Qosmos has  nurtured close ties with the French intelligence services and even received public funding through the French sovereign fund in 2011. The company is also at the centre of an investigation by a Parisian judge specialised in crimes against humanity for its role in providing censorship and surveillance tools to the Libyan and Syrian dictatorships.

Quite daringly, the government claims such black boxes have nothing to do with mass surveillance, arguing that they will only scan “anonymous” metadata, while only a small portion of suspicious data will trigger further investigations. From a legal perspective, however, it is clear that these devices amount to a massive processing of personal data, including that of people for whom there is no suspicion of direct or indirect relationship to a crime. As such, they run counter to the case law of the EU Court of Justice and that of the European Court of Human Rights.[1] Moreover, as leading computer experts have long argued, such data-mining systems are bound to be ineffective when it comes to finding “the needle in the haystack”, leading to huge amounts of false leads and investigative dead-ends.

International surveillance: negating the universality of human rights

In article 3, the French Intelligence Bill defines “international surveillance measures” as communications “sent or received abroad” and then goes on to establish a minimal framework for the surveillance of such international communications. The bill's rapporteur, Jean-Jacques Urvoas, argues this is a major step forward since until now international surveillance was left unregulated.

However, as was implicitly recognised by the head of the DGSE in parliamentary hearings, surveillance activities carried on beyond French borders will remain completely unregulated. The provision is actually drafted in a way that makes it only applicable to the interception of international communications when conducted from French territory. In sum, French agencies will be able to massively tap into global communications networks located under French jurisdiction or anywhere else in the world, and then legally store, retrieve and analyse collected data on French territory.

In that regard, the provision echoes the collection practices at the heart of the unfolding BND scandal in Germany (authorized under the G-10 law that regulates the surveillance activities of intelligence agencies) as well as section 702 of the US FISA law. Considering that most of French residents' online communications are “made or received abroad” – particularly in the US or in other European countries where the servers of the largest online service providers are located – it will be used against national citizens and residents, much like FISA section 702 for “US-persons”. Intelligence agencies will therefore use it to circumvent the protections provided for national surveillance, such as the ex ante opinion issued by the intelligence oversight commission. As for foreigners, they will remain completely “fair game”.

So why are the bill's advocates completely confident that the provision is compliant with human rights standards? In their defence, they quote a recent study on “fundamental rights in the digital sphere” conducted by the Council of State – the French supreme court for administrative justice. The latter invoked the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights to back up a contested legal premise according to which “(...) the fact that there are lesser safeguards surrounding the interception of communications when it is located abroad rather than on the [national] territory is justified”.

Traditionally, such a dual regime distinguishing national and international surveillance has been justified by the practical limitations to the ability of states to engage in mass surveillance outside of their territory. But in the age of global and digital communications networks, where whole civilian populations have become subject to systematic surveillance, this outdated “laissez-faire” approach does not only completely negate the universality of human rights when it comes to foreigners. It also leads to opportunistic strategies where the cross-border nature of communications is used to bypass the checks-and-balances that protect the state's own citizens, all within the comfort of the national territory.

Secret trials: procedures for unaccountability

Finally, the government alleges that the bill brings more protection to fundamental rights by opening the possibility of legal redress. According to the text, any person who thinks they might be subject to preventive surveillance will be able to have their day in court by appealing to the Council of State.

But this new procedure has many loopholes. First, it is unclear how individuals will be able to demonstrate that they have “a direct and personal interest” in bringing a case against what are by definition clandestine operations. More importantly perhaps, the procedure heavily relies on secrecy, as intelligence agencies will be able to submit classified material to judges and make oral arguments during closed-door in camera sessions. In the name of national security, these evidence and arguments will remain inaccessible to claimants and their lawyers.

Once again, this provision seems modelled on other surveillance superpowers. They particularly bring to mind one of the most worrying trends in British law: the growing resort to “Closed-Material Procedures” (CMPs) in national security cases. According to a recent EU Parliament study on the use of secrecy in courts (as discussed on openDemocracy), such secret procedures come with important challenges:

“(...)The use of information and materials provided by intelligence communities, which are kept secret and not disclosed to the defendants in the name of national security, not only sparks debate in terms of respect for fair trials, equality of arms and fundamental rights. It also poses important questions linked to the changing practices of the intelligence communities and the extent to which materials provided by these services in courts is properly scrutinised by judicial authorities.”

Although the secret procedures created by the French bill have a much narrower scope than British CMPs – they are limited to cases of alleged illegal surveillance –, they also come with less protections. For instance, there will be no security-vetted lawyers allowed to access secret material and participate in closed-door hearings so as to defend the claimants' interest (so-called “special advocates”). This is all the more worrying considering the institutional arrangements undermining the independence of the Council of State: half of its judges are directly designated by the President and many go back and forth between the Council's benches and high-ranking jobs in the executive branch during the course of their career. Such proximity only reinforces the risk that magistrates will uncritically rely on intelligence information based on a presumption of good faith, thereby protecting government interests in cases of illegal surveillance.

Can the French political system resist mass surveillance?

These three examples reveal only some of the many dangers contained in France’s Intelligence Bill. But they clearly show how untruthful the public relations strategy of the Valls Government is. The notion that France’s surveillance apparatus is defined in opposition to the American and British models just does not hold good once the text is examined in detail. Quite the contrary: we see similar technical, legal and procedural devices being used to subject whole populations to surveillance, while sheltering the reason of state from appropriate checks and balances.

Manuel Valls is confident the bill will sail through Parliament. The terrorist threat and the collective trauma ensuing from the Paris attacks is of course playing into the hands of the government. Many leaders of the main opposition party, the UMP (conservative) are engaging in a securitarian horse-race, warning that they will oppose any measure hindering the power of the intelligence services. As for his own majority, Valls knows he can rely on the bill's rapporteur, Jean-Jacques Urvoas, one of his most loyal allies in the Socialist Party, who is a member of several intelligence oversight agencies and one of the bill's key architects.

Finally, though the government quite paradoxically claims the law was not “dictated by circumstances”, it has chosen to trigger a fast-track parliamentary procedure, allowing only one reading of the bill in each chamber of Parliament. From this perspective, the adoption of the Intelligence Bill is a matter of weeks (after adopting a few amendments mid-April, the National Assembly will hold a formal vote on May 5 before the bill goes to the Senate floor, probably in June).

Yet, opposition to the bill is unprecedented. Digital rights groups, international human rights organisations as well as judges and lawyers unions are teaming up. They are joined by prominent institutions like the data protection authority as well as media and international organisations. Several officials of the Council of Europe or the United Nations also came out strongly against this law. Even the president of the CNCIS – the French intelligence oversight commission – denounced the legalisation of mass surveillance practices as amounting to “trawl fishing” rather than “targeted harpooning”.

If the government were to get the approvals of the Parliament and the French constitutional court despite this near-unanimous opposition, it would be yet further evidence of the profound crisis of a political system determined to distort the truth if necessary, to break away from the rule of law.

 


[1] See, e.g., ECHR, Amann v. Switzerland, February 16th, 2000, §69: “The Court reiterates that the storing by a public authority of information relating to an individual’s private life amounts to an interference within the meaning of Article 8. The subsequent use of the stored information has no bearing on that finding.” See also EUCJ, Digital Rights v. Ireland, April 28, 2014, §57: The Court invalidated the 2006 data retention directive after finding that the latter “cover[ed], in a generalised manner, all persons and all means of electronic communication as well as all traffic data without any differentiation, limitation or exception being made in the light of the objective of fighting against serious crime.”

Why Life in America Can Literally Drive You Insane | Alternet

Why Life in America Can Literally Drive You Insane | Alternet: "Yet another explanation for the epidemic may also be evolving from radical to mainstream, thanks primarily to the efforts of investigative journalist Robert Whitaker and his book Anatomy of An Epidemic (2010). Whitaker argues that the adverse effects of psychiatric medications are the primary cause of the epidemic. He reports that these drugs, for many patients, cause episodic and moderate emotional and behavioral problems to become severe, chronic and disabling ones.

Examining the scientific literature that now extends over 50 years, Whitaker discovered that while some psychiatric medications for some people may be effective over the short term, these drugs increase the likelihood that a person will become chronically ill over the long term. Whitaker reports, “The scientific literature shows that many patients treated for a milder problem will worsen in response to a drug—say have a manic episode after taking an antidepressant—and that can lead to a new and more severe diagnosis like bipolar disorder.”

With respect to the dramatic increase of pediatric bipolar disorder, Whitaker points out that, “Once psychiatrists started putting ‘hyperactive’ children on Ritalin, they started to see prepubertal children with manic symptoms. Same thing happened when psychiatrists started prescribing antidepressants to children and teenagers. A significant percentage had manic or hypomanic reactions to the antidepressants.” And then these children and teenagers are put on heavier duty drugs, including drug cocktails, often do not respond favorably to treatment and deteriorate. And that, for Whitaker, is a major reason for the 35-fold increase between 1987 and 2007 of children classified as being disabled by mental disorders. "

Comey: The most frightening lesson from the Holocaust - Richmond.com: Commentary: "I want them to see that, although this slaughter was led by sick and evil people, those sick and evil leaders were joined by, and followed by, people who loved their families, took soup to a sick neighbor, went to church and gave to charity.
Good people helped murder millions. And that’s the most frightening lesson of all — that our very humanity made us capable of, even susceptible to, surrendering our individual moral authority to the group, where it can be hijacked by evil. Of being so cowed by those in power. Of convincing ourselves of nearly anything.
In their minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, and so many, many other places didn’t do something evil. They convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to do. That’s what people do. And that should truly frighten us.
That is why I send our agents and our analysts to the Holocaust Museum. I want them to stare at us and realize our capacity for rationalization and moral surrender. I want them to walk out of that great museum treasuring the constraint and oversight of divided government, the restriction of the rule of law, the binding of a free and vibrant press. I want them to understand that all of this is necessary as a check on us because of the way we are. We must build it, we must know it and we must nurture it now, so that it can save us later. That is the only path to the responsible exercise of power."

Food And Chemical Companies Spent $63.6 Million In 2014 To Defeat GMO Labeling

Food and biotechnology companies spent $63.6 million in 2014 alone to oppose mandatory labeling of genetically modified food ingredients, or GMOs, according to a new analysis by EWG. The Grocery Manufacturers Association, for example, disclosed $5.8 million in lobbying expenditures around GMO labeling in 2014, “up sharply from $60,000 in 2013,” according to the analysis. PepsiCo nearly doubled the amount it spent, dedicating more than $4 million to the anti-labeling effort in 2014, up from 2.6 million in 2013. Other iconic companies that spent big in 2014 to deny consumers the right to know if their foods contain GMOs include Kellogg ($2.1 million), General Mills ($2.6 million) and Coca-Cola, which put up more than $9 million – the most of any food company, according to the report.

Cop Ruptures Man’s Spleen as Fellow Officers Take Pics and Laugh

Robert Liese was in jail for being unable to pay a $60 bar tab.

Orlando, FL — An Orlando cop has been arrested after surveillance video showed him violently kneeing a handcuffed man. But further investigation into the matter shows that his fellow officers were not only complicit in covering it up, but also sadistically laughed as the man lay bleeding internally in the cell.

Orlando police Officer Peter Delio was arrested in March and charged with felony battery after surveillance video showed him kneeing a handcuffed, Robert Liese, in the gut.

Several hours later Liese underwent emergency surgery to remove his spleen.

What happened between the initial blow to the stomach and the time the paramedics were notified is disturbing, to say the least.

Robert Liese was in jail after he says a friend left him with a $60 bar tab that he was unable to pay. Besides being drunk, not once did Liese ever pose a threat to officers. In fact, he peacefully offered Delio his hands to be brought to jail after knowing that he was not going to be able to pay.

But Liese says that Delio didn’t care that he was nice and then kicked the handcuffed man in the stomach as he was loading him into the squad car.

Once in jail, Liese headbutted the door because he was upset and injured, and he was trying to get the attention of someone besides the officers who were outside of the door ridiculing him.

Officer Delio, who apparently wanted to take out more frustrations on the restrained man, then walked into the cell and kneed him in the stomach so hard, that it ruptured his spleen.

The pain was so great that Liese was immobilized. Delio picks the man up like a ragdoll and laughably yells to Liese, “stop resisting.”

He could barely breathe, and he fell to the floor in agony. He was then picked up and dragged out of the cell to be placed in leg restraints.

During the two hours long video after Liese was struck by the officer, he begged for help.

Sgt. Michael Faulkner reported to internal affairs that Liese not only didn’t ask for medical attention, but that he refused it.

Unlike Sgt. Faulkner, however, the video does not lie. Not five, not ten, but at least twenty times Liese can be heard on video begging for medical attention.

“I need medical attention, please,” Liese said.

“What do you need medical attention for?” Faulkner asked.

“I have to lay down, please. I want to lay down,” Liese said. “My chest.”

“What’s wrong?” Faulkner asked Liese.

“I can’t breathe right,” Liese said.

But the sadistic Faulkner did not render aid, nor did he call paramedics; instead, he took cell phone pics of the injured man.

According to WFTV, Faulkner told internal affairs investigators that he was investigating Delio’s use of force. But the video shows Liese is the one who brought it up and Faulkner never asked about it.

“I got kicked in the chest in the backseat of the car,” Liese said.

Crucial minutes past that could have led to the death of Liese. During this time, the officers can be heard on the surveillance video laughing and joking about the man who lay dying just a few feet away.

“Somebody, please call the – paramedics,” Liese said suffering as the laughter continued.

Finally after nearly two hours, paramedics arrived, and Liese’s life was saved.

Once again, heroes are exposed for villains, thanks to the power of the camera lens. Luckily no lives were lost due to these criminal actions.

The Time a Newspaper Stared Down the Country’s Largest Advertiser  - ProPublica

The Time a Newspaper Stared Down the Country’s Largest Advertiser  - ProPublica: "Yet, however modestly they portrayed it, the showdown with General Motors had been a watershed moment for Kilgore and the Journal. Kilgore's deputy wrote that it "firmly established in the public mind, including millions who never had read The Wall Street Journal, and presumably never would, that here was a newspaper of unshakable independence and integrity. GM had done us a priceless favor." David Lilienthal, former Tennessee Valley Authority and Atomic Energy Commission chairman, wrote Kilgore that it was "a classic in the history of newspapering." Author Edward Scharff later concluded that this "new-won reputation was worth inestimably more than the General Motors advertising account." Donald MacDonald, then a junior ad salesman but later head of all sales for the Journal and Dow Jones, summed up the implications simply: "Our future was assured.""

The Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Death of the Republic | WEB OF DEBT BLOG

The Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Death of the Republic | WEB OF DEBT BLOG: Something else besides attracting investment money and encouraging foreign trade seems to be going on. The TPP would destroy our republican form of government under the rule of law, by elevating the rights of investors – also called the rights of “capital” – above the rights of the citizens.

That means that TPP is blatantly unconstitutional. But as Joe Firestone observes, neo-liberalism and corporate contributions seem to have blinded the deal’s proponents so much that they cannot see they are selling out the sovereignty of the United States to foreign and multinational corporations.

Hey Mr. President: Transparency Applies to the TPP, Too

President Barack Obama speaks with Michelle Bachelet, the President of Chile, at the White House in Washington, June 30, 2014. The bilateral meeting was to touch on the ongoing Trans-Pacific Partnership trade negotiations and other regional issues. (Stephen Crowley/The New York Times) President Obama speaks with Michelle Bachelet, the president of Chile, at the White House in Washington, June 30, 2014.

Do you want media that's accountable to YOU, not to corporate sponsors? Help publish journalism with real integrity and independence - donate to Truthout!

Transparency belongs in all parts of a democracy.

This morning, President Obama announced that back in January we accidentally killed two hostages, including one US citizen, with a drone during a counterterrorism operation targeting al-Qaeda operatives in a compound along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

The hostages, American Warren Weinstein and Italian Giovanni Lo Porto, were apparently in the compound when it was hit by the drone strike.

See more news and opinion from Thom Hartmann at Truthout here.

Officials are saying that they had no idea Weinstein and Lo Porto were in the compound at the time of the attack.

The strike also killed two US-born al-Qaeda operatives, Adam Gadahn and Ahmed Farouq.

Speaking about the tragic deaths of Weinstein and Lo Porto, President Obama said that, "As president and as Commander-in-Chief, I take full responsibility for all our counterterrorism operations including the one that inadvertently took the lives of Warren and Giovanni."

The president then talked about why the government had chosen to make the operation and its tragic results public.

He said that, "As soon as we determined the cause of their deaths, I directed that the existence of this operation be declassified and disclosed publicly. I did so because the Weinstein and Lo Porto families deserved to know the truth. And I did so because, even as certain aspects of our national security efforts have to remain secret in order to succeed, the United States is a democracy, committed to openness in good times and in bad."

President Obama is absolutely right. The United States is a democracy, and transparency is an absolutely necessary prerequisite for a democracy to properly function.

But when it comes to transparency you can't play pick and choose.

You can't be transparent about a counterterrorism operation that went horribly wrong, but then be incredibly secretive about something like... the TPP.

Earlier this week, President Obama was interviewed by Chris Matthews. One of the major topics of that discussion was the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

In his interview with Matthews, President Obama continued to tout the TPP, saying that he wouldn't promote something that would hurt our economy and hurt working-class Americans.

President Obama also called out TPP opponents like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying that she and others are wrong about the facts of the deal.

But here's the problem. It's hard to know who's right or wrong about the facts of the TPP because it's been negotiated largely in secret behind closed doors.

Any information we do have about it is from leaks, and there is still a great deal we don't know about the agreement.

In a statement on her website, Senator Warren responded to the president, saying that, "The government doesn't want you to read this massive new trade agreement. It's top secret. Why? Here's the real answer people have given me: 'We can't make this deal public because if the American people saw what was in it, they would be opposed to it.'"

Senator Warren went on to say that, "If the American people would be opposed to a trade agreement if they saw it, then that agreement should not become the law of the United States."

So, what do we know about the TPP?

Well, according to Public Citizen, we know that the TPP could ship millions of good-paying US jobs overseas.

We know that the TPP could increase the costs of health care and medicine, while hurting health and safety standards.

And we know that the TPP could make corporations even stronger and undo what few reforms are left on Wall Street.

And we know that the Republicans, Wall Street and lots of transnational corporations are salivating at getting the TPP - also known as the Southern Hemisphere Asian Free Trade Agreement (SHAFTA) - passed.

Maybe President Obama is right. Maybe unlike every other so-called free trade we've signed on to, the TPP will actually help working-class Americans and help our economy get back on track.

But, we can't possibly know that without seeing the full agreement in writing, and without giving Congress the right to debate and amend it.

That's why I've let my elected officials know that I'm strongly opposed to the "Fast-Track" bill that's currently before Congress, that would take away from Congress the power to debate or amend this trade agreement. As citizens of a free country, we deserve transparency and debate. It's that simple.

This study has empirically demonstrated an association between more widespread exposure to fluoridated water and increased ADHD prevalence in U.S. children and adolescents.

PMID:  Environ Health. 2015 ;14(1):17. Epub 2015 Feb 27. PMID: 25890329 Abstract Title:  Exposure to fluoridated water and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prevalence among children and adolescents in the United States: an ecological association. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Epidemiological and animal-based studies have suggested that prenatal and postnatal fluoride exposure has adverse effects on neurodevelopment. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between exposure to fluoridated water and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) prevalence among children and adolescents in the United States. METHODS: Data on ADHD prevalence among 4-17 year olds collected in 2003, 2007 and 2011 as part of the National Survey of Children's Health, and state water fluoridation prevalence from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collected between 1992 and 2008 were utilized. RESULTS: State prevalence of artificial water fluoridation in 1992 significantly positively predicted state prevalence of ADHD in 2003, 2007 and 2011, even after controlling for socioeconomic status. A multivariate regression analysis showed that after socioeconomic status was controlled each 1% increase in artificial fluoridation prevalence in 1992 was associated with approximately 67,000 to 131,000 additional ADHD diagnoses from 2003 to 2011. Overall state water fluoridation prevalence (not distinguishing between fluoridation types) was also significantly positively correlated with state prevalence of ADHD for all but one year examined. CONCLUSIONS: Parents reported higher rates of medically-diagnosed ADHD in their children in states in which a greater proportion of people receive fluoridated water from public water supplies. The relationship between fluoride exposure and ADHD warrants future study.

How Can Homeopathy Be Both a Useless Placebo and Dangerous at the Same Time?

The FDA wrapped up a two-day hearing this week on whether or not homeopathic remedies should be regulated like drugs. Listening to critics of homeopathy try to justify why they don't think the American public should have free access to homeopathic remedies leaves one wondering just what the real motivation is behind these criticisms. The two dominant criticisms made against homeopathic remedies are antithetical to each other. Critics complain that due to a lack of regulation homeopathic remedies are dangerous, but then they turn around and say that homeopathic remedies are simply useless sugar pills with no therapeutic effect whatsoever, and no better than a placebo. Both cannot be true. Is this the new standard of scientific scrutiny that federal agencies are using to supposedly protect the public? The FDA is clearly not concerned about homeopathic remedies because they are a danger to the public. There are no deaths associated with homeopathic remedies, and very few side effects. By contrast, FDA-approved drugs have millions of adverse side effects, including over 100,000 deaths each year. Homeopathic remedies are a danger to the FDA's monopoly on drugs, and so they clearly want to either eliminate the competition, or get in on the action and take over the market.

Glyphosate Is Spreading Like A Cancer Across The U.S.

American growers sprayed 280 million pounds of glyphosate on their crops in 2012, according to U.S. Geological Survey data. That amounts to nearly a pound of glyphosate for every person in the country. The use of glyphosate on farmland has skyrocketed since the mid-1990s, when biotech companies introduced genetically engineered crop varieties (often called GMOs) that can withstand being blasted with glyphosate. Since then, agricultural use of the herbicide has increased 16-fold. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, Monsanto’s widely used weed killer, which according to the World Health Organization is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

Proof: Pertussis vaccine causes illness | Natural Health 365

Proof: Pertussis vaccine causes illness | Natural Health 365: "The truth is that the medical community has known about the pertussis vaccine dangers since at least 2010. One study done in California after a whooping cough outbreak there showed that 81 percent of whooping cough cases in children occurred in those who had received the pertussis vaccine; only eight percent of the infected persons had not been vaccinated.
The study also showed that infection rates markedly increased after three years of receiving the vaccine.
This study, as well as the current Park City outbreak, are more than enough evidence that the pertussis vaccine is not only ineffective, but that is seems to be causing more cases of the illness. However, instead of renewing their explorations into the truth, medical professionals are characterizing these developments as a “good reminder to keep kids up to date on immunizations.”"

What they do is they pull all deaths in the winter that have anything to do with respiratory symptoms together and they all label them as Flu deaths whether they’ve even documented Flu or not. And so the CDC loves to promote the Flu vaccine because the CDC’s been very much in cahoots with the industry. This vaccine doesn’t work, it’s a waste of our money, it’s a waste of our time.

The judge noted that the U.S. was unique among nations in having no “official secrets act,” no law against telling the truth to the public.
No more. The brutal 35-year prison sentence for Manning on espionage charges and the continuing effort to arrest Edward Snowden make it clear that the Obama administration considers truth-telling a crime.

Vicious attack on Dr. Oz actually waged by biotech mafia; plot to destroy Oz launched after episode on glyphosate toxicity went viral

http://m.naturalnews.com/news/049395_Doctor_Oz_Monsanto_Mafia_glyphosate_toxicity.html

Dr. Oz should be given a Congressional medal of some kind for his willingness to expose the truth about glyphosate on national television. In a recent episode that went viral, Dr. Oz discussed the toxicity of the biotech industry's favorite pesticide "glyphosate" -- a dangerous chemical that even the World Health Organization now admits likely causes cancer.

In response to this episode, the so-called "Monsanto Mafia" went berserk with all their usual character assassination tactics, and now they've come up with a contrived plot -- a campaign of intimidation and character smearing -- to try to silence Dr. Oz by destroying his credibility.

"But what is not mentioned in the Bible (which was long ago perverted by the ruling class) is that the Christ character signified that we are all Sons and Daughters of the Creator. In a matter of speaking, we are meant to rule ourselves.

"What our so-called leaders at the highest levels have always feared the most is not so much that we overthrow them through violent means. Those pulling the strings in the background can always replace one set of puppets with another by taking over the revolution and steering it in the direction they desire. What they fear most is that their puppets are merely ignored due to everyone following the same Source known as conscience and living in harmony with one another....

"The Christ character came to tell us that worshipping anything or anyone outside of yourself (including the Christ character himself) is a violation to your soul.   This is why the masses in this story went along with their religious and government “authorities” and called for his death.   He revealed to them that they were fools for bowing down to another human being. They had to kill the voice on the outside which testified to the voice on the inside. This type of mob mentality that had Christ killed has now become the hive mind of both Israel as well as America.   The people residing in these countries must literally strive to “crucify their conscience” in order to continue to support the horrific atrocities committed by their respective governments both at home and abroad.   And just like the myth, anyone who tries to expose this risks being killed off just like the Christ character was killed with the approval of the masses. That they allowed government enforcers in this fable to carry out his torture and murder is exactly what is being done now when they support the current government’s law enforcement officers killing off those who would not comply to orders given as well as blindly supporting the troops who simply kill anyone their masters tell them to kill without conscience playing a part at all."

A Trade Rule That Makes It Illegal to Favor Local Business? Leak Shows TPP Would Do Just That

A Trade Rule That Makes It Illegal to Favor Local Business? Leak Shows TPP Would Do Just That:



"A quick reading of the leaked chapter makes it clear why TPP sponsors have gone to great lengths to keep their negotiations secret. The document substantiates claims by opponents that the TPP is a corporate-rights agreement designed to facilitate the export of US jobs, allow corporations to sue governments for enacting labor and environmental protections, make it illegal for governments to favor local businesses, and advance the colonization of national economies by global corporations and financiers."

Monsanto is the Department of Homeland Security for food

http://www.sott.net/article/295311-Monsanto-is-the-Department-of-Homeland-Security-for-food

...the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has taken the position that organic farming, such as free-ranging chickens and cows and non-GM seeds that you can't 'control' are potential biosecurity threats. USDA has even begun putting, in writing, directives on how they want organic farming 'contained' - which resembles turning organic farms into nothing more than factory farms.

Can the President Kill Americans?

Can the president kill you? The short answer is: Yes, but not legally. Yet, President Obama has established a secret process that involves officials from the Departments of Justice and Defense, the CIA, and the White House senior staff whereby candidates are proposed for execution, and the collective wisdom of the officials then recommends execution […]

Student Who Refused to Lie About Vaccines and was Kicked out of Nursing School Fights Back with Lawsuit


In 2013, nursing student Nichole Bruff was dismissed from Baker College in Michigan for allegedly asking questions about the way her instructors were teaching nursing students how to coerce parents into receiving vaccines for their children, even if the children or parents did not want them. Nichole wondered why a patient's right to choose or refuse a medical procedure was not being followed in administering vaccines. To her, this seemed to violate medical ethical issues she had been taught in nursing school, so she wanted clarification on why vaccines were different when it came to patient rights and ethics. Is this not part of the American educational process, the right of students to question their instructors? Shortly before she was due to graduate, she was dismissed from the school without warning, and with no recourse to appeal the dismissal. She soon found out that her dismissal prevented her from being accepted at other nursing schools. Nichole tells Health Impact News: "My dream of being a nurse practitioner of midwifery is gone." Now, she is fighting back by filing a lawsuit against the school.
