Young-People-Abstract-Public-DomainOp-Ed by Michael Snyder


A shocking new survey has found that support for capitalism is dying in America.  In fact, more than half of all adults in the United States under the age of 30 say that they do not support capitalism at this point.  You might be tempted to dismiss them as “foolish young people”, but the truth is that they are the future of America.  As older generations die off, they will eventually become the leaders of this country.  And of course our nation has not resembled anything close to a capitalist society for quite some time now.  In a recent article, I listed 97 different taxes that Americans pay each year, and some Americans actually end up returning more than half of what they earn to the government by the time it is all said and done.  So at best it could be said that we are running some sort of hybrid system that isn’t as far down the road toward full-blown socialism as most European nations are.  But without a doubt we are moving in that direction, and our young people are going to be cheering every step of the way.



When I first heard of this new survey from Harvard University, I was absolutely stunned.  The following is from what the Washington Post had to say about it…



The Harvard University survey, which polled young adults between ages 18 and 29, found that 51 percent of respondents do not support capitalism. Just 42 percent said they support it.


It isn’t clear that the young people in the poll would prefer some alternative system, though. Just 33 percent said they supported socialism. The survey had a margin of error of 2.4 percentage points.



Could it be possible that young adults were confused by the wording of the survey?


Well, other polls have come up with similar results…


The university’s results echo recent findings from Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who surveyed 1,000 Americans between the ages of 18 and 26 and found that 58% of respondents believed socialism to be the “more compassionate” political system when compared to capitalism. And when participants were asked to sum up the root of America’s problem in one word, 29% said “greed.”



This trend among our young people is very real, and you can see it in their support of Bernie Sanders.  For millions upon millions of young adults in America today, Hillary Clinton is not nearly liberal enough for them.  So they have flocked to Sanders, and if they had been the only ones voting in this election season, he would have won the Democratic nomination by a landslide.


Sadly, most of our young people don’t seem to understand how socialism slowly but surely destroys a nation.  If you want to see the end result of socialism, just look at the economic collapse that is going on in Venezuela right now.  The following comes from  a Bloomberg article entitled “Venezuela Doesn’t Have Enough Money to Pay for Its Money”…



Venezuela’s epic shortages are nothing new at this point. No diapers or car parts or aspirin — it’s all been well documented. But now the country is at risk of running out of money itself.


In a tale that highlights the chaos of unbridled inflation, Venezuela is scrambling to print new bills fast enough to keep up with the torrid pace of price increases. Most of the cash, like nearly everything else in the oil-exporting country, is imported. And with hard currency reserves sinking to critically low levels, the central bank is doling out payments so slowly to foreign providers that they are foregoing further business.


Venezuela, in other words, is now so broke that it may not have enough money to pay for its money.



We are losing an entire generation of young people.  These days, there is quite a lot of talk about how we need to get America back to the principles that it was founded upon; but the cold, hard reality of the matter is that most of our young people are running in the opposite direction as fast as they can.


And Americans under the age of 30 are not just becoming more liberal when it comes to economics.  Surveys have found that they are more than twice as likely to support gay rights and less than half as likely to regularly attend church as the oldest Americans are.


So why is this happening?


Well, the truth is that our colleges and universities have become indoctrination centers for the progressive movement.  I know, because I spent eight years at public universities in this country.  The quality of the education that our young people are receiving is abysmal, but the values that are being imparted to them will last a lifetime.


And of course the same things could be said about our system of education all the way down to the kindergarten level.  There are still some good people in the system, but overall it is overwhelmingly dominated by the progressives.


Meanwhile, the major entertainment providers in the United States are also promoting the same values.  In a recent article entitled “Depressing Survey Results Show How Extremely Stupid America Has Become”, I discussed a Nielsen report which detailed how much time the average American spends consuming media on various electronic devices each day…



Watching live television: 4 hours, 32 minutes
Watching time-shifted television: 30 minutes
Listening to the radio: 2 hours, 44 minutes
Using a smartphone: 1 hour, 33 minutes
Using Internet on a computer: 1 hour, 6 minutes

Overall, the average American spends about 10 hours a day consuming one form of entertainment or another.


When you allow that much “programming” into your mind, it is inevitable that it is going to shape your values, and our young people are more “plugged in” than any of the rest of us.


So, yes, I believe that it is exceedingly clear why we should be deeply concerned about the future of America.  The values that are being relentlessly pounded into the heads of our young people are directly opposed to the values that this nation was founded upon, and it is these young people that will determine the path that this country ultimately takes.

TSAGroperBy Lily Dane


Travelers aren’t the only ones who are tired of being bullied by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA): whistleblowers are speaking out now, too.


Today, three TSA executives told members of Congress that poor leadership, a lack of oversight, low morale, and widespread retaliation has led to a culture of fear at the agency.


Mark Livingston, a program manager with the TSA’s office of risk management, told members of Congress:


If you tell the truth in TSA you will be targeted. I call it the Lord of the Flies — either attack or be attacked.



From NBC:


The House Oversight Committee is investigating allegations TSA officials gave hefty bonuses to supervisors who ignored security warnings and retaliated against employees who spoke up by reassigning them and giving them negative performance reviews. Dozens of TSA employees have come forward to speak with congressional investigators about abuses of power.


Livingston told lawmakers:


I am concerned that TSA employees responsible for transportation security, intelligence and analysis fear their supervisors more than they fear a potential terrorist threat.


Unfortunately, I think many people can relate to that.



The TSA does seem like more of a threat than terrorism these days, with agents seizing cheese, conducting invasive pat-downs on 10-year-old children, humiliating people with cancer, stealing from passengers, molesting kids, seizing cash, targeting travelers for “suspicious” behavior including yawning, throat clearing, and whistling, harassing stroke victims and deaf people, and other bizarre and irrational actions that do nothing to make anyone safer, but do much to make air travel extremely unpleasant for people.


All of this ultimately undermines the agency’s supposed mission to help keep the nation’s travelers safe.


Last year, the TSA failed 95 percent of undercover breach tests.


The agency has also faced criticism for long lines at security checkpoints, high employee attrition rates and allegations of waste, fraud, and abuse. An inspector general testified last year that at TSA there are problems with technology, procedure, and human errors and that “layers of security were simply missing.”


Livingston said:


You should be alarmed and concerned with these issues, because TSA employees are less likely to report operational security threats or relevant issues out of fear of retaliation. No one who reports issues is safe at TSA.


When he raised concerns, Livingston said, his supervisors ignored them and punished him instead. He told lawmakers he was demoted and lost $10,000 from his annual salary after reporting a coworker who was sexually harassing another employee:


They reduced me two pay grades. This action was intended to publicly humiliate me. They sought to make an example of me.


As airports anticipate what may be a record number of passengers this summer, the employees testified that morale was near rock bottom among TSA security workers.


Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said that 103 of the TSA’s 48,000 airport screeners quit each week:


Many airports are complaining that TSA is getting worse, not better.


Jay Brainard, a TSA security director in Kansas, told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform:


These leaders are some of the biggest bullies in government. While the new administrator of TSA has made security a much-needed priority once again, make no mistake about it, we remain an agency in crisis.


Witnesses emphasized that the problem stems from a select group of executive leaders who are unqualified and abuse their power, but have managed to keep their jobs.


Brainard elaborated:


From 2011 to early 2015, TSA chose, in abundance, unprepared employees to fill key senior leadership vacancies. Many of these leaders lacked any security experience or had ever worked in a field operation their entire career.


The agency was once again ranked one of the worst places to work in federal government, ranking 313 out of 320, reports The Hill.


The whistleblowers said senior managers often use directed reassignments and early retirements to force out disfavored employees.


Andrew Rhoades, assistant federal security director for TSA’s office of security operations, said he was abruptly issued a directed reassignment because a supervisor believed he was leaking information to the local press. He said he was told to profile Somali-American leaders and was accused by a supervisor of “going native” after attending a meeting at a Minneapolis mosque.


All three of the men have run afoul with their supervisors. Livingston has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the agency. Brainard and Rhoades reportedly are under internal review by the TSA.

toxic sealcoatBy Catherine J. Frompovich


Before you resurface and freshen up the macadam on the driveway to your house using coal-tar based sealcoats, you had better take note of new research that found those sealcoats are more toxic than anyone ever thought before now.


According to research done at Oregon State University,



sealcoats are polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs, which are common products of any type of combustion, and have been shown to be toxic to birds, fish, amphibians, plants and mammals, including humans.


Studies done with zebrafish – an animal model that closely resembles human reaction to toxic chemicals – showed developmental toxicity to embryos. [1]  [CJF emphasis]




Moreover, they found that PAHs in sealcoats were thirty times more toxic than common PAHS that previously were studies by the U.S. Geological Survey!  Just imagine how many kids play basketball on those driveways.


However, there is a difference between sealants sold in geographic locations of the USA.  Sealcoats sold in the western part of the USA are based on asphalt, which is less toxic than the coal-ash based sealcoats sold in the Midwest and eastern part of the country.  Did you know that?


Here’s information every homeowner ought to know and consider when it comes to their driveway:


A 2011 report from the USGS outlined how PAH compounds from sealcoat products can find their way into soils, storm waters, ponds, streams, lakes, and even house dust, as the compounds are tracked by foot, abraded by car tires, washed by rain and volatilize into the air. They reported that the house dust in residences adjacent to pavement that had been treated with a coal tar-based sealcoat had PAH concentrations 25 times higher than those normally found in house dust. [1]   [CJF emphasis]



The above should become the prime motivation for the practice of using house slippers inside your house, and leaving outside shoes parked in a tray inside the mud room, the garage, the front hallway, or somewhere everyone won’t be contaminating carpets, flooring infants and children play on, and indoor living space by the soles of everyone’s shoes.   In my house, I have guest slippers for visitors and everyone knows to park their shoes right inside the front door.


OSU researcher Staci Simonich offers this about their research:


Our study is consistent with previous findings made by the USGS.  But we were able to study a much wider number of PAH compounds than they did. As a result, we found even higher levels of toxicity in coal-tar based sealcoats than has previously been suspected. [1]


If that be the case, then what are the toxic implications, plus ramifications, for human health from the suspected coal fly ash ingredient [2,3] that’s been thought to be in the mix sprayed as part of the sky graffiti laid down in the Solar Radiation Management [4] project overhead, colloquially called “chemtrails”?

fluoride_testingBy Jon Rappoport


In 1997, Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson, two respected mainstream journalists, peered into an abyss. They found a story about fluorides that was so chilling it had to be told.


The Christian Science Monitor, who had assigned the story, never published it.


Their ensuing article, “Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb,” has been posted on websites, sometimes with distortions, deletions, or additions. I spoke with Griffiths, and he told me to be careful I was reading a correct copy of his piece. (You can find it—“Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb,” at fluoridealert.org.)


Griffiths also told me that researchers who study the effects of fluorides by homing in on communities with fluoridated drinking water, versus communities with unfluoridated water, miss a major point: fluorides are everywhere—they are used throughout the pharmaceutical industry in the manufacture of drugs, and also in many other industries (e.g., aluminum, pesticide).



I want to go over some of the major points of the Griffiths-Bryson article.


Griffiths discovered hundreds of documents from the World War 2 era. These included papers from the Manhattan Project, which was launched to build the first A-bomb.


Griffiths/Bryson write:


Fluoride was the key chemical in atomic bomb production…millions of tons…were essential for the manufacture of bomb-grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War.


The documents reveal that fluoride was the most significant health hazard in the US A-bomb program, for workers and for communities around the manufacturing facilities.


Griffiths/Bryson:


Much of the original proof that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by A-bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide ‘evidence useful in litigation’ [against persons who had been poisoned by fluoride and would sue for damages]… The first lawsuits against the US A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage, the [government] documents show.


So A-bomb scientists were told they had to do studies which would conclude that fluorides were safe.



The most wide-reaching study done was carried out in Newburgh, New York, between 1945 and 1956. This was a secret op called “Program F.” The researchers obtained blood and tissue samples from people who lived in Newburgh, through the good offices of the NY State Health Department.


Griffiths/Bryson found the original and secret version of this study. Comparing it to a different sanitized version, the reporters saw that evidence of adverse effects from fluorides had been suppressed by the US Atomic Energy Commission.


Other studies during the same period were conducted at the University of Rochester. Unwitting hospital patients were given fluorides to test out the results.


Flash forward. Enter Dr. Phyllis Mullenix (see also here), the head of toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston. In the 1990s, Mullenix did a series of animal studies which showed that, as Griffiths/Bryson write: “…fluoride was a powerful central nervous system (CNS) toxin…”


Mullenix applied for further grant monies from the National Institutes of Health. She was turned down. She was also told that fluorides do not have an effect on the CNS.


But Griffiths/Bryson uncovered a 1944 Manhattan Project memo which states:


Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect…it seems most likely that the F [fluoride] component rather than the [uranium] is the causative factor.


The 1944 memo was sent to the head of the Manhattan Project Medical Section, Colonel Stafford Warren. Warren was asked to give his okay to do animal studies on fluorides’ effects on the CNS. He immediately did give his approval.


But any records of the results of this approved project are missing. Most likely classified.


Who was the man who made that 1944 proposal for a rush-program to study the CNS effects of fluorides? Dr. Harold Hodge, who worked at the Manhattan Project.


Who was brought in to advise Mullenix 50 years later at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, as she studied the CNS effects of fluorides? Dr. Harold Hodge.


Who never told Mullenix of his work on fluoride toxicity for the Manhattan Project? Dr. Harold Hodge.


Was Hodge brought in to look over Mullenix’s shoulder and report on her discoveries? It turns out that Hodge, back in the 1940s, had made suggestions to do effective PR promoting fluoride as a dental treatment. So his presence by Mullenix’s side, all those years later, was quite possibly as an agent assigned to keep track of her efforts.


Getting the idea here? Build an A-bomb. Forget the toxic fluoride consequences. Bury the fluoride studies. Twist the studies.


More on Hodge. In 1944, “a severe pollution incident” occurred in New Jersey, near the Du Pont plant in Deepwater where the company was trying to build the first A-bomb. A fluoride incident. Farmers’ peach and tomato crops were destroyed. Horses and cows became crippled. Some cows had to graze on their bellies. Tomato crops (normally sold to the Campbell company for soups) were contaminated with fluorides.


The people of the Manhattan Project were terrified of lawsuits and ensuing revelations about the toxic nature of their work. A heads-up memo was written on the subject. Its author? Harold Hodge. Among other issues, he reported on the huge fluoride content in vegetables growing in the polluted area.


Also the high fluoride levels in human blood.


The farmers began to bring lawsuits. Big PR problem.


The lawsuits were settled quietly, for pittances.


Harold Hodge wrote another memo. Get this quote:


Would there be any use in making attempts to counteract the local fear of fluoride on the part of residents [near the A-bomb facility]…through lectures on F [fluoride] toxicology and perhaps the usefulness of F in tooth health?


Griffiths/Bryson write:


Such lectures were indeed given, not only to New Jersey citizens but to the rest of the nation throughout the Cold War.


This was a launching pad for fluorides as “successful dental treatments.”


In the film, Dr. Strangelove, Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper rails about the destruction fluorides are wreaking on the “pure blood of pure Americans.” Of course, this character is fleshed out as some kind of far-right-wing fanatic. How odd that he and other military men in the movie are, in fact, ready and willing to start a nuclear war. Odd because, unknown to the Strangelove script writer, fluorides were, in fact, very toxic and were an integral part of the very program that created atomic bombs.

voting fraudBy Lily Dane


“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” – Unknown, commonly misattributed to Franklin D. Roosevelt


According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, about half of American voters believe that the system U.S. political parties use to pick their candidates for the White House is “rigged” and more than two-thirds want to see the process changed.


Only half?


One would think that, by now, most (if not ALL) people would realize that the entire voting system is a sham.



From Reuters:



The United States is one of just a handful of countries that gives regular voters any say in who should make it onto the presidential ballot. But the state-by-state system of primaries, caucuses and conventions is complex. The contests historically were always party events, and while the popular vote has grown in influence since the mid-20th century, the parties still have considerable sway.


One quirk of the U.S. system – and the area where the parties get to flex their muscle – is the use of delegates, party members who are assigned to support contenders at their respective conventions, usually based on voting results. The parties decide how delegates are awarded in each state, with the Republicans and Democrats having different rules.


The delegates’ personal opinions can come into play at the party conventions if the race is too close to call – an issue that has become a lightning rod in the current political season.


Another complication is that state governments have different rules about whether voters must be registered as party members to participate. In some states, parties further restrict delegate selection to small committees of party elites, as the Republican Party in Colorado did this year.




In other words: the establishment selects two candidates and “allows” us to choose from them on election day.


Third-party candidates? Forget about it. The mainstream media largely ignores them. Suggest voting for one, and most Americans will tell you that you are “wasting your vote.” Unfortunately, they aren’t wrong: the elite will never allow a third-party non-establishment candidate a real shot at the presidency.


In the recent article The System Is Rigged: Widespread Dissatisfaction Among US Voters, The Guardian says:


The rise of anti-establishment candidates like Sanders and Trump has thrown into sharp relief the mess of rules and processes deliberately designed to keep these candidates from clinching the nomination. For these voters, and the many more across the political spectrum just waking up to the ground rules of the highest-stakes game in the country, the primary races can seem horribly unfair.


The Guardian also polled Americans to ask what they think about the election system. More than 300 readers responded, and many expressed their misgivings about the way the parties select nominees, describing the modern primary process as “rigged”, “undemocratic,” and a “charade.”


Their comments are quite telling:



“Why should the states, the party organizations and the voters go through all the hype, expense and time to have a primary when the party poobahs make the ultimate decision?” – Don Grafues


“Now that we have true grassroots, anti-establishment, populist candidates on both sides [Sanders and Trump], the political machine is in full survival mode to maintain the status quo. Party leaders sense a real and direct threat from both campaigns…and both major parties are going to use every tool they have to block what they feel is a threat to their very existence.”  – Chris Ritz


“The reason I never voted is because I thought of corruption. I thought maybe I was wrong or unfair, but it’s [the electoral process this year] kind of making me think there’s a lot of corruption and your voice doesn’t count.” – Wendy Kranmer



Earlier this month, RT discussed the rigging of elections with Dr. Ron Paul, who called the system “rotten” and a “charade”:



In the article “Illusion of Choice,” Bernhard Guenther says



…as the saying goes, “the path to hell is paved with good intentions”. In a ponerized society with a corrupt political system, good intention, hope and voting don’t result in positive change, but merely wishful thinking and denial.


There are no free elections in this country. There hasn’t been in a long time. The Voting System is a fraud sold to the public to give them the illusion of choice. The same goes for the two-party set-up. Democrats and Republicans. Back and forth. Two sides of the same coin. Despite popular belief we actually don’t live in a democracy anymore. People are so caught up in this left/right tunnel vision that they don’t see how they’re being duped and played with.



Elections are nonsense. They serve to maintain the illusion that we actually have a say in selecting a new master every four years. Participating in this system gives it validity – voters are giving their permission to keep the current system in place.

Freightliner-Inspiration-TruckBy Melissa Dykes


According to the American Trucking Association, there are some 3.5 million truck drivers in the United States alone.


That’s 3.5 million people who may lose their jobs once driverless trucks hit the roads in full force… which appears to be in the not-too-distant future.


Tech Crunch reports that a convoy of these trucks recently drove across Europe and arrived without incident at their destination at the Port of Rotterdam for 75% cheaper than it would have cost had human beings been driving them:



Shipping a full truckload from L.A. to New York costs around $4,500 today, with labor representing 75 percent of that cost. But those labor savings aren’t the only gains to be had from the adoption of driverless trucks…


A large part of the economic efficiency boost will include the fact that driverless trucks never get tired and can drive for 24 hours straight non-stop, whereas humans obviously need to eat, take pee breaks, and sleep. Drivers are restricted by law from driving more than 11 hours a day and are required to take breaks each day. “That means the technology would effectively double the output of the U.S. transportation network at 25 percent of the cost,” Tech Crunch explains.



In addition, truck drivers drive faster because they are paid by the mile and they’re trying to get more done, a situation which throws fuel efficiency out the window in a way that won’t happen with robotrucks which will drive at a steady, set pace the entire trip. There are many ways that robotrucks will enhance the efficiency of the entire trucking industry… but, glaringly, those ways don’t involve humans having jobs.


The list goes on and on but the message is clear: robots and AI are here and millions of people, from factory workers to front desk clerks to truck drivers, are going to have their entire livelihoods yanked away. How are so many people going to be able to put food on the table and pay their rent when there are no jobs for them to get paid to do so?


That’s one percent of the population right there just… unemployed…


Perhaps that’s why law enforcement is training so hard for martial law.

mar1-1By Brianna Acuesta


A couple weeks ago, True Activist reported on protesters who smoked weed openly in front of the White House as part of their protest calling for the descheduling of marijuana. At 4:20, the protestors lit up their joints and fired up their bowls amidst other methods to draw attention to their demands.


As it turns out, their “smoke-in” worked because the advocates who staged the protest have been invited to the White House to meet with the Obama Administration to discuss the national drug policy.



Adam Eidinger, the lead organizer of the smoke-in outside the White House, stated that he had written numerous letters to the White House asking for a “Bud Summit” to discuss Obama’s drug policy. Although Eidinger led a successful ballot measure to legalize marijuana in Washington, D.C., he had not yet received any response from the White House about his meeting proposal.


After the protest, which also featured a 50-foot inflatable joint that read “Obama, Deschedule Cannabis Now!”, the White House extended an invitation to Eidinger and a small group of activists from the DCMJ, the group behind the protest, to meet with officials for half an hour.



Both White House officials and Eidinger declined to state who it was that they met with, but many suspect that they met with the Office of National Drug Control Policy. The Office has had similar meetings in the past with other national lobbying groups that are calling for the descheduling of marijuana and less strict laws in regards to possession and growing.


The meeting, which occurred on Monday, was apparently “friendly” and Eidinger explained,


They didn’t say much, but their body language was so positive.


After the meeting, the group met at the front of the White House once again with a banner that said,


President Obama, We Need A Higher Level Meeting.


The initial meeting was a great start to the DCMJ’s communication with the Obama Administration, and the group hopes to increase the communication in order to eventually legalize pot in D.C. and the nation.


What do you think about descheduling marijuana? Please comment on, like, and share this article!

cia-wall-streetBy Jake Anderson


Swiss multinational bank, Credit Suisse, will collaborate with data analysis firm, Palantir, to launch a trader surveillance program. According to Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Voegeli, the joint venture, called Signac, aims to catch rogue Wall Streeters engaged in illegal trading. It comes in the wake of a number of trading scandals in recent years that have cost banks billions of dollars.


Palantir was co-founded by Peter Thiel and seed-funded by the CIA. The company was funded in part by In-Q-Tel Inc., the venture capital investment arm of the CIA that has a long, symbiotic history with startups, the NSA, the FBI, and DARPA. In fact, In-Q-Tel specifically funds tech start-ups “to advance ‘priority’ technologies of value” in the intelligence community. The group has ties to Donald Rumsfeld’s Total Information Awareness initiative and is believed by some to have worked closely with Google in its earliest years.



Palantir itself has lived in the shadows since its 2004 inception, working primarily to create a proprietary data mining system used by law enforcement agencies, finance firms, and security companies to isolate criminality. For example, Palantir’s software was used to analyze the troves of millions of documents related to the Bernie Madoff scandal.


Palantir has an extensive relationship with the U.S. government, and includes among its clients the CIA, DHS, NSA, FBI, the CDC, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, Special Operations Command, West Point, the Joint IED-defeat organization and Allies, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.



Another client is the Los Angeles Police Department. A leaked document from 2013 included a quote from Sergeant Peter Jackson, who said Palantir’s technology is allowing the LAPD to become more efficient.


The new trader surveillance co-venture comes at a time when Credit Suisse finds itself in dire straits. After adhering to a so-called Pursuit of Revenue “At All Costs” policy, the company now finds itself facing $90 billion of distressed debt and rampant illiquidity.


Now bank executives view the problem as stemming largely from rogue traders, and believe Signac will help them turn things around. Signac will use algorithmic artificial intelligence to monitor unauthorized trades.


It is perhaps worth noting that Signac will monitor internal transactions that harm Credit Suisse – not any of the myriad transgressions made by the financial industry at large, such as the kinds of predatory lending we saw prior to the Great Recession. We may have to wait for a larger, more aggressive artificial intelligence presence for that kind of oversight.

cannabis-dnaBy Jay Syrmopoulos


A pioneering biotechnology startup has launched an online interactive guide that maps the genetic evolution of the cannabis genome, allowing for specific strains of marijuana that are already in the public domain a form of protection from patenting by large biotech firms such as Monsanto.


After two years of collecting samples, sequencing the plant’s DNA and developing the software to allow for a 3-D visualization of the collected data, the company was ready to unveil their long-awaited project.


“Sample collection was a huge part of this process,” Carolyn White, Sales and Marketing Manager at Phylos Bioscience told Willamette Week. “One side was a collaboration with growers, dispensaries and labs to collect modern samples, and the other a process of hunting down ancient landrace strains from all over the world.”



The Portland company, fittingly on 4/20, went online with its interactive guide, which the company calls Galaxy.


According to a report in The New York Times:




The resulting visualization will offer anyone the ability to easily travel in cyberspace through a three-dimensional projection of the genetic information drawn from sequencing samples of the plant, which is increasingly being legalized for medical and recreational use in states throughout the country…


Phylos has created a colorful 3-D map that visually represents the statistical relationships between different breeds of the plant. The company hopes that having genetic information easily available will help bring order to a business that began underground and is now making a commercial transition.


Over time, the scientists believe, this sort of visual map can be applied to other types of plants, or even to animals.



While there are a number of other companies that offer various services in identification and cataloging, none offer actual DNA sequencing, which provides an unparalleled level of accuracy.


According to a report in Willamette Week:


With the Galaxy, users can view the hereditary sequence of each plant by following lines that connect strains to their genetic parent or offspring. Similar plants are located close to each other, while color groups the plants into “tribes” based on their region.


“We’ve collected samples from all over the world, and cataloged the genetic information encoded in their DNA,” Dr. Holmes, Phylos’s chief science officer and molecular and evolutionary biologist, in addition to being a co-founder of Phylos Bioscience, told the NY Times, relating the DNA sequencing to an actual bar code in terms of identification and evolutionary relationship relative to other samples.


The data could theoretically help protect the intellectual property rights of growers from potential big business interests, such as Monsanto, from gaining a patent foothold in the growing industry.


Due to the social media attention given to the subject, Monsanto has attempted to refute any interest in producing GMO cannabis, posting on their website that the companies reported interest in GMO marijuana is nothing more than “an Internet rumor.”


Additionally, on April 25, Monsanto spokeswoman Charla Lord told Willamette Week that the company will not be getting involved in the marijuana business.


“Monsanto has not, is not and has no plans for working on cultivating cannabis,” Lord told WW.


Contrary to the public statements by Lord, White says that he expects companies like Monsanto will attempt to eventually patent cannabis.


“We think Big Pharma and Big Ag will be the primary audience after patents, and it will likely require writing new DNA in to the plant,” White told WW. “None of the folks at Phylos really see patenting as a viable tool for the average breeder.”


Phylos looks to assist in pushing more data into the public domain as a hedge against patenting by large bio-agribusiness as information in the public domain can’t be patented after one year.


“You can’t patent anything that’s been in the public domain longer than a year,” White told WW. “We set out to bring more knowledge and transparency to the industry and that’s still what we’re doing.”


The next step for the innovative company is the launch of a commercial sequencing product to allow for anyone to send in a sample to Phylos and have it sequenced. The sample would be placed into the Galaxy, with the customer being given a detailed analysis of the strains sequenced data.

rhoden-family-massacr-1By Justin Gardner


Authorities are sharing few details of their investigation into the appalling murder of eight family members in Pike County, Ohio. Autopsy reports confirm that the victims all died of gunshot wounds, and several pieces of evidence have been sent to the Bureau of Investigation for analysis.


There was one piece of information, however, that government was quick to release to the public—the existence of cannabis growing facilities at three of the properties. The plant is still illegal in Ohio, although a ballot measure for the legalization of medical cannabis use has cleared its first hurdle.


The victims are 40-year-old Christopher Rhoden Sr.; his ex-wife, 37-year-old Dana Rhoden; their three children, 16-year-old Christopher Rhoden Jr., 19-year-old Hanna Rhoden and 20-year-old Clarence “Frankie” Rhoden; Christopher Rhoden Sr.’s brother, 44-year-old Kenneth Rhoden; their cousin, 38-year-old Gary Rhoden, and 20-year-old Hannah Gilley, whose 6-month old son with Frankie was unharmed.



Two other children, Hanna Rhoden’s 4-day-old daughter and Frankie Rhoden’s 3-year-old son, also were unharmed.


The fact that the victims grew cannabis and probably sold it to others will undoubtedly play into the hands of drug war crusaders. Some in the media have already picked up on the narrative, dutifully echoing government spokesmen.


The opening paragraph of an article titled “Mexican cartels have used Pike County for pot grows” appearing at Cincinnati.com reads:


The remoteness of Pike County’s wooded countryside makes it a perfect place for Mexican cartels trying to grow marijuana stateside.



Although there is no link whatsoever to the brutal Mexican cartels and the Rhoden family, and no actual evidence is offered of Mexican drug cartels operating in Ohio, this media outlet feels fine wielding such a red herring.


The article goes on to talk about three past cases of large cannabis grow operations in Pike County that were “related to some kind of organized crime,” although no details were offered. Cincinnati.com even asserted that extracting oil from cannabis is as prone to explosions as methamphetamine labs, and these “shatter” labs are on the rise.


About 200 cannabis plants were found inside some of the homes of the Rhoden family victims.


The most important thing to remember is that there is nothing wrong with growing a therapeutic plant that is legal for medicinal use in 23 states. And, if the Rhoden family sold cannabis to others, there is nothing inherently violent or victimizing in the voluntary exchange of a dried plant.


Despite this, law enforcement and media are pushing a narrative that serves the interest of perpetuating the war on drugs. Simply mentioning the possibility of Mexican drug cartels being involved is enough to sway the minds of citizens, especially with a vote on legalizing medical cannabis possibly on the horizon.


Mexican cartels are notorious for having tortured and killed thousands of people in recent years as they operate the black market for drugs. The fact that government prohibition of drugs is the creator of this vicious black market is becoming increasingly known to all, and the momentum to change course is growing. This is the point that the narrative pushers refuse to acknowledge.


Mexico’s own president, Enrique Peña Nieto, recognizes the folly of the drug war, which is why he helped initiate the recent UN special session on drugs. The meeting turned out to be a disappointment, but Peña Nieto set the tone for the future, saying:


So far, the solutions [to control drugs and crime] implemented by the international community have been frankly insufficient. We must move beyond prohibition to effective prevention.


Former Colombian president, who also hails from a country mired in the drug black market, said that the UN’s goal of a “society free of drug abuse” is “unrealistic, totally naive, almost stupid.”


The growing of 200 cannabis plants by the Rhoden family could have nothing to do with “organized crime,” much less the Mexican variety, as it was suggested by law enforcement and parroted by Cincinnati.com and CBS.


Violence originates from the black market and cops who facilitate the drug war, not from the growth, use and sale of a therapeutic plant.


In fact, cannabis growers like the Rhodens are defying the drug war in prohibitionist states like Ohio for the sole purpose of helping others. Medical cannabis provides a miraculous treatment to children suffering from epileptic seizures, along with the ability to treat a vast array of other ailments.


Desperate parents looking to cure their children, or veterans of war who cannot treat their PTSD with other means, or any number of other patients will assuredly seek out the right medicine. Such was the case with Cyndimae Meehan’s mother, who had to become a criminal in Connecticut for her epileptic daughter before moving to a state with medical cannabis.


Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine admitted he has “no idea” whether a Mexican drug cartel is behind the Piketon murders. He has mixed feelings on cannabis, saying that legalizing recreational use would be “setting up kids for failure” (even though teen cannabis use in Colorado has declined) but does not oppose medical use.


Dewine certified a petition for a medical cannabis ballot measure that could appear in November. If approved by voters, the constitutional amendment would mean:



Adults could grow, buy, and use marijuana if a physician recommends marijuana for a qualifying medical condition such as cancer, seizure disorders, or post-traumatic stress disorder. Minors could use marijuana with written permission of a parent or guardian.


Approved patients could buy and possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and grow up to six plants or designate another adult to grow for them.


The first 15 commercial growing licenses would be for large-scale growers who pay a $500,000 application fee, but then there would be an unlimited number of licenses available for small- and medium-scale growers.



Although it would represent some progress against the immoral war on drugs, in many Ohioan minds the amendment would not go far enough. By giving a little bit of “freedom,” authorities can preempt or at least stall any further dismantling of government prohibition. Real reform would mean putting an end to criminalizing people for voluntarily using substances in their own body.


There is not much hope that media and government drug war crusaders will abandon their hints that the Rhodens were caught up with notoriously violent foreign drug cartels. There is even less chance that they will inform the public that their own primitive, failed prohibition of drugs is to blame for these cartels.

Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. ​​Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.“​ Margaret Mead​​​


We are at a pivotal moment in history – one that dramatically affects our health, freedom, economy, and survival as we are headed now toward the Sixth Extinction Level Event. The outcome will be determined by the choices of each person makes now.


My new Urban Gardens Revolution website shows that an increasing number of people are choosing to be the change they want to see in the world simply by growing their own food! Dr. Vandana Shiva says that the “Urban garden is the greatest revolution!” Jules Dervaes, founder of the Urban Homestead, calls his 1/5 acre city garden on which he grows 6,000 lbs of food each year “The Path to Freedom”.



The Urban Gardens Revolution site links to the free online Food Revolution Summit which takes place April 30-May 8. Dr. Joseph Mercola, who has one of the most popular health sites, says in his article “Reinventing Our Food System, One Small Farm At A Time”:


I cannot encourage you strongly enough to take control of the food that you’re eating. A great way to get started on your own is by sprouting. They may be small, but sprouts are packed with nutrition and best of all, they’re easy and inexpensive to grow.


Dr. Mercola points out the major health risks of GMO foods and asks:


The question is, what kind of food system do YOU want? If every American decided to not eat at a fast food restaurant tomorrow, the entire system would collapse overnight. It doesn’t take an act of Congress to change the food system. All that is required is for each and every person to change their shopping habits to support the system they prefer.


Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation says:


A meaningful change is going to start at the bottom and make its way to the top. It isn’t because there’s a president who has a new point of view, but because there’s a movement that represents that point of view and demands that change come.


GMO Foods / Disease Link


The 2014 research paper by Dr. Nancy Swanson “Genetically engineered crops, glyphosate and the deterioration of health in the United States of America” shows the correlation between the escalation of 21 diseases and the use of glyphosate in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide beginning in 1974.


In a video linked to in the article “Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide – The Ultimate Killing Machine,” author and filmmaker Jeffrey Smith interviews Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at MIT. Dr. Seneff says glyphosate is possibly “the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”


Dr. Seneff has documented the connection between GMO foods and diseases that include but are not limited to autism, obesity, allergies, ALS, cardiovascular disease, depression, cancer, infertility, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis, as well as gastrointestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, colitis, and Crohn’s disease.


Dr. Seneff points out that America is the only country that spends just 7% of its GDP on food. We spend twice as much on healthcare as the next highest nation – yet we rank low in terms of health. She says we are poisoning ourselves and expecting drugs and surgeries to heal us although Hippocrates, the founder of Western medicine, said: “Let food be your medicine and medicine your food”. Wendell Berry, an American novelist, environmental activist, and farmer points out that we have a food system that pays no attention to health and a healthcare system that ignores food.


Monsanto’s herbicides have contributed to the death of 90% of our bees which provide 30% of our foods. Einstein warned, “If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.”


2016 Sea Change


On March 16, Congress voted against the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know). It was an attempt by Big Agra to defeat state mandatory labeling of foods that have genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). The goal was to avoid the mandatory GMO labels required by the Vermont law which goes into effect on July 1.


With the defeat of the DARK Act, there has been a sea change! General Mills, Mars, Kellogg, and ConAgra announced in March that they will label GMO foods nationwide since they cannot create labels for just one state. This powerful shift is a grassroots movement led by tiny Vermont that has the power to re-structure the national food system and cure the epidemic of disease.


Jeffrey Smith, author of Genetic Roulette says that doctors report to his Institute For Responsible Technology that thousands of patients have recovered quickly from serious illnesses when they switch to organic foods. Dr. Terry Wahls was wheelchair bound and hopeless with “incurable” Multiple Sclerosis in 2007. When she switched to organic foods, she was able to take an 18-mile bike ride in 2008 and go horseback riding in the Canadian Rockies in 2009. Her TEDx Talk in 2011 went viral and Dr. Wahls has documented her new organic paleo diet in two books.

Urgent Action Needed Now


Where are the FDA and the AMA on this critical health issue? Shouldn’t the media be telling Americans about the connection between GMO foods and the epidemic of diseases? Shouldn’t doctors be required to advise patients to switch to organic foods? Conventional medicine continues to claim that the cause of many of these diseases is “unknown” and often prescribes toxic drugs. Isn’t it malpractice not to tell patients the links between these diseases and the standard American Diet? Med schools need courses in nutrition on the dangers of genetically-modified foods and the importance of organic foods.


In his Seeds of Deception video, Jeffrey Smith, author of the DVD Genetic Roulette says that the American Academic of Environmental (AAEM) recommends that ALL doctors prescribe non-GMO diets for EVERYONE. The position paper of the AAEM on GMOs is here.


Garth Davis, M.D., renowned bariatric surgeon and advocate of plant-based eating, has partnered with Memorial Hermann Medical Center and the Rawfully Organic Co-Op to open Houston’s first hospital-based organic produce stand. The project is an extension of Dr. Davis’ “Farmacy” program launched in 2012. “Along with a recommendation for regular exercise, I write all of my patients a prescription for more fruits and vegetables,” said Dr. Davis, who created “Farmacy” prescription pads for this purpose.


However, millions of Americans have been and continue to be made sick and are killed each year by this toxin in our food. If another country were responsible for this assault on our health, our lives, and our nation, we would be at war to defend ourselves. As a first step in that defense, Monsanto’s GMO foods should be banned – as they are in 38 countries. That would help heal not only millions of Americans, but the bees, the land, and the rivers made toxic by Monsanto’s GMOs. The need for action is urgent because if Monsanto’s genetically-engineered crops are not banned soon, the destruction of life on Earth may soon be irreversible.


GMO-Quiz-Banner-1


Values Change For Survival


Every dollar spent on food is a vote for health or illness that sends a message all the way up the food chain. If enough Americans stop buying GMO foods, companies will stop producing them.


Fortunately, the tide is rapidly turning toward organic foods around the world now. The Urban Gardens Revolution site documents this growing shift and shows how you can help. The site shows that we have the technologies to solve the problems. We have just been using the wrong map of reality. The site shows the pivotal shift in the role of Native America on the world stage in helping us revise our map. Increasingly ecologists, ethnobotanists, doctors, and Westerners seeking physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing are recognizing that we must all adopt the indigenous worldview now to survive.


The following Issues and Solutions Map on my Urban Gardens Revolution site shows the pivotal role that healthy foods play in solving a variety of issues crucial to our survival. Check the Updates page in the Contacts+ section for new and updated pages in this fast-evolving story.

05-GAVI-09-Olivier Asselin-Sierra Leone_sourceBy Catherine J. Frompovich


The implementation of a pentavalent (5 actives in one vaccine) into the Indian health system has caused great concern, especially since “Every few days one more child dies after receiving the pentavalent vaccine… Yet as these deaths mount, it has been announced that pentavalent vaccine is to be introduced in 3 more states…” [1]


The five-in-one vaccine contains actives for diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B, and Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib).  It seems that the hepatitis B active is questioned as not being protective of infections in babies.  How interesting!  As a result, parents are refusing to have their children vaccinated, while vaccination rates have fallen off dramatically—25 percent in the last four years.



Ten Indian health experts, Dr Amitav Banerjee, Dr Arun Gupta, Dr BM Hegde, Dr JP Dadhich, Dr Jacob Puliyel, Dr KP Kushwaha, Dr Ritu Priya, Dr SK Mittal, Dr S Srinivasan and Dr Vikas Bajpai, wrote a letter to the Indian PMO (Property Management Officer) [2] wherein they stated that


The study conducted by the Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, and the National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad and two editorials in the journal (Indian Paediatrics) raised several questions regarding the universal immunization programme (UIP) itself. Dr T Jacob John in his editorial noted that the frequency of chronic infection was similar in both the unvaccinated and the vaccinated – about 0.15%. The Hepatitis B vaccine was thus completely useless in this population. Professor Jacob John further observed that the immunological and epidemiological outcomes of rolling out Hib are not being monitored as UIP has no capacity for that function. [CJF emphasis]


And concluded with:


In short, expensive vaccines that have little utility are being rolled out without monitoring benefits or harms and which are causing deaths and serious adverse effects. As a result, inspite of official attempts at denial, the public are losing trust in the entire immunization programme. [CJF emphasis]


Those ten health experts expressed concern and questioned what many other health professionals globally ask about:  Transparency within the organization in India that gives the green light for vaccine use in India.  India, I offer, is neither unique nor alone regarding the transparency issue.  From my research into vaccines and its politics for decades, every country relies upon the U.S. CDC/FDA pseudoscience regarding vaccines and that has to stop, especially when so much scientific fraud regarding vaccines not producing autism or other adverse health effects are trashed, minimized, or withheld deliberately from health agencies and the public.  That, in my opinion, is unmitigated FRAUD!



One of the doctors, Jacob Puliyel, raised the issue of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s involvement and conflict of interest!  Seems the Gates Foundation is involved in many of the problems in foreign countries’ vaccine programs.  I wonder why.  Several years ago in India, 47,500 children were paralyzed, plus some deaths, after receiving the Gates Foundation oral polio vaccine [3] as reported in2013.  And still, government officials haven’t learned a lesson about vaccines’ ability to harm!


Regarding the hepatitis B vaccine, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) conducted a benefits received study in 2014 and found that after ten years of children receiving the hepatitis B vaccine there were no differences between children who received the vaccine and those who did not!  The only difference, I might add, is that those who received the hepatitis B vaccine may find that there may be long-term health effects like:



Autoimmune inflammatory polyneuropathy
Multiple sclerosis
Chronic arthritis
Autism
Bell’s palsy [4]

Anaphylactic shock and death in infants, though, are more immediate reactions, which sometimes prompt doctors to suspect and accuse parents or caregivers of physical abuse or Shaken Baby Syndrome.


It seems Indian health officials question the efficacy of the Hib vaccine and performed several studies including a probe study and found that “The vaccinated kids reported more pneumonia cases, says Dr Puliyel. The same study was repeated in Bangladesh with similar results.”  That, I offer, is not unusual, as vaccinated children make up the higher percentage of those contracting diseases for which they have been vaccinated.  That’s been proven in various demographics taken in the United States, too.


Here’s what’s sounding alarm bells for everyone in India:



Now the issue was not just of relevance but of risk to children in being given a mixture of five vaccines in a single shot or the pentavalent vaccine. Three deaths were reported in Sri Lanka when the pentavalent vaccine was introduced there. Here, the deaths were probably caused by the vaccine as no other reasons were found, said critics like Dr Puliyel. Experts seemed to have flouted the standard norms of classification of adverse events following vaccinations. This was exposed in a paper published by the critics group in the British Medical Journal.


Hence, when it was introduced in India in 2011 it was restricted only to one state, Kerala. In the first year, at least 12 deaths were reported in vaccinated children, beginning with a death of a healthy child on the first day itself. [1]   [CJF emphasis]



Interestingly, Indian health activists cite a German study, the TOKEN study, wherein “they say has shown that the hexavalent vaccine (a six-in-one vaccine) results in sudden unexplained deaths of children within 48 hours of vaccination.”


Furthermore, the TOKEN study also found “that deaths could be explained by other reasons like maternal smoking or over-heating of the environment. It said there was no increased risk of sudden death within one week after hexavalent vaccination.” Question:  Weren’t those risks prevalent before the children were vaccinated and they still lived, but coincidentally died within one week after a hexavalent vaccination?


The vaccine problem in India has caused concern for health officials since vaccination rates are going down, something they don’t want, but which parents obviously do.  Professor Dr Jacob John points out that


[T]he immunisation programme in our country is as flawed as the rest of the healthcare programmes. It is divorced from preventive healthcare or public healthcare which would mean monitoring disease, its causes and prevention. The way we immunise children in India leaves much to be desired, as pointed out by Dr Jacob Puliyel. Immunisation is for disease prevention, but in India MoH does not monitor if vaccines are preventing diseases in the community. For that ‘public health surveillance’ has to be practised, but India does not follow that principle. In India healthcare and immunisation are like a set of rituals with no basis in reason. [1]


Immunization a ritual with no basis in reason is a good way of describing what many would call the ‘religious belief dogma of vaccinology,’ which states dogmatically that vaccines are safe regardless of the fact that no study ever has been undertaken, either retrospectively or ongoing, on the interaction and/or adverse events of multi-valent vaccine actives in one vaccination and giving as many as nine vaccines at one time to a less than 25 pound infant!


Dr Puliyel sums vaccine programs not only in India, but for elsewhere, when he claims,



We do not have a programme for ‘control of childhood communicable diseases’, while we have a robust vaccine delivery platform, giving vaccines as rituals, without accurately measuring the outcome and carefully documenting every case of vaccine failure.


The point is that the Indian health ministry leaders are either incredibly stupid or absolutely compassionless.  Could be both.  [1]



I second Dr Puliyel’s comments; they apparently can be applied to every country that blindly implements mass vaccination programs by following the U.S. CDC/FDA’s ostensible Big Pharma vested interest influences and federal agency mandates.  Some countries, after experiencing the adverse health effects of the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccines, officially do not recommend the HPV vaccines.  India and Japan have suspended HPV vaccination recommendations. [5]


It’s time for a real evaluation of the poisoned needles.

Regarding the hepatitis B vaccine, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) conducted a benefits received study in 2014 and found that after ten years of children receiving the hepatitis B vaccine there were no differences between children who received the vaccine and those who did not!  The only difference, I might add, is that those who received the hepatitis B vaccine may find that there may be long-term health effects like:



Autoimmune inflammatory polyneuropathy
Multiple sclerosis
Chronic arthritis
Autism
Bell’s palsy [4]

Anaphylactic shock and death in infants, though, are more immediate reactions, which sometimes prompt doctors to suspect and accuse parents or caregivers of physical abuse or Shaken Baby Syndrome.


It seems Indian health officials question the efficacy of the Hib vaccine and performed several studies including a probe study and found that “The vaccinated kids reported more pneumonia cases, says Dr Puliyel. The same study was repeated in Bangladesh with similar results.”  That, I offer, is not unusual, as vaccinated children make up the higher percentage of those contracting diseases for which they have been vaccinated.  That’s been proven in various demographics taken in the United States, too.


Here’s what’s sounding alarm bells for everyone in India:



Now the issue was not just of relevance but of risk to children in being given a mixture of five vaccines in a single shot or the pentavalent vaccine. Three deaths were reported in Sri Lanka when the pentavalent vaccine was introduced there. Here, the deaths were probably caused by the vaccine as no other reasons were found, said critics like Dr Puliyel. Experts seemed to have flouted the standard norms of classification of adverse events following vaccinations. This was exposed in a paper published by the critics group in the British Medical Journal.


Hence, when it was introduced in India in 2011 it was restricted only to one state, Kerala. In the first year, at least 12 deaths were reported in vaccinated children, beginning with a death of a healthy child on the first day itself. [1]   [CJF emphasis]



Interestingly, Indian health activists cite a German study, the TOKEN study, wherein “they say has shown that the hexavalent vaccine (a six-in-one vaccine) results in sudden unexplained deaths of children within 48 hours of vaccination.”


Furthermore, the TOKEN study also found “that deaths could be explained by other reasons like maternal smoking or over-heating of the environment. It said there was no increased risk of sudden death within one week after hexavalent vaccination.” Question:  Weren’t those risks prevalent before the children were vaccinated and they still lived, but coincidentally died within one week after a hexavalent vaccination?


The vaccine problem in India has caused concern for health officials since vaccination rates are going down, something they don’t want, but which parents obviously do.  Professor Dr Jacob John points out that


[T]he immunisation programme in our country is as flawed as the rest of the healthcare programmes. It is divorced from preventive healthcare or public healthcare which would mean monitoring disease, its causes and prevention. The way we immunise children in India leaves much to be desired, as pointed out by Dr Jacob Puliyel. Immunisation is for disease prevention, but in India MoH does not monitor if vaccines are preventing diseases in the community. For that ‘public health surveillance’ has to be practised, but India does not follow that principle. In India healthcare and immunisation are like a set of rituals with no basis in reason. [1]


Immunization a ritual with no basis in reason is a good way of describing what many would call the ‘religious belief dogma of vaccinology,’ which states dogmatically that vaccines are safe regardless of the fact that no study ever has been undertaken, either retrospectively or ongoing, on the interaction and/or adverse events of multi-valent vaccine actives in one vaccination and giving as many as nine vaccines at one time to a less than 25 pound infant!


Dr Puliyel sums vaccine programs not only in India, but for elsewhere, when he claims,



We do not have a programme for ‘control of childhood communicable diseases’, while we have a robust vaccine delivery platform, giving vaccines as rituals, without accurately measuring the outcome and carefully documenting every case of vaccine failure.


The point is that the Indian health ministry leaders are either incredibly stupid or absolutely compassionless.  Could be both.  [1]



I second Dr Puliyel’s comments; they apparently can be applied to every country that blindly implements mass vaccination programs by following the U.S. CDC/FDA’s ostensible Big Pharma vested interest influences and federal agency mandates.  Some countries, after experiencing the adverse health effects of the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccines, officially do not recommend the HPV vaccines.  India and Japan have suspended HPV vaccination recommendations. [5]


It’s time for a real evaluation of the poisoned needles.
