If you thought the TAPS Act was bad, wait until you read this.


Our politicians are hard at work introducing bills that promise to turn America into a mirror image of China.


Rep. Kathleen Rice’s H.R. 3374 bill, otherwise known as the End Drunk Driving Act, would put breathalyzers and ignition interlock devices in every new car.


According to the LI Herald, Rice wants to force auto manufacturers to put breathalyzers and ignition interlock devices in new cars by 2029.


         



      

The End Drunk Driving Act would mandate that, within 10 years, all cars sold nationwide come equipped with technology that would detect a driver’s blood alcohol content and prevent the vehicle from moving if it is above the legal limit.


With close to 280 million cars in the U.S. and over 226 million drivers licenses, nearly every American will be affected by this and other bills.


If Rice’s bill is passed it would effectively turn 226 million people into suspects.


SEC. 3. Advanced Technology To End Drunk Driving:


(a) In General.–Not later than 10 years after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall issue a final rule prescribing or amending a Federal motor vehicle safety standard that would prevent operation of a motor vehicle when the operator is under the influence of alcohol. The standard–


(1) shall prevent the operation of the motor vehicle if the operator’s blood alcohol content is above the legal limit; and
(2) shall require such technology to be–


(A) reliable and accurate;
(B) set at the legal limit;
(C) unobtrusive and fast;
(D) tamper-proof/circumvention-resistant;
(E) functionary in extreme environments (both hot and cold); and
(F) easily maintained.


If Rice’s bill becomes law, then motorists in Utah, who have consumed one alcoholic beverage would not be allowed to drive.


As I reported last year, at least six states are considering criminalizing consuming one alcoholic beverage. Earlier this year, Michigan expressed their desire to do the same, bringing the total to seven states.


Rice’s plans for law enforcement and accused drunk drivers will leave your head spinning in disbelief.


Law enforcement to give drivers mental health assessments


Rice’s H.R. 7099 bill, otherwise known as the Prevent Impaired Driving Child Endangerment Act would force anyone convicted of a DWI with a child in the car, to undergo a mental health assessment.

The LI Herald states that every state would force law enforcement to give drivers mental health assessments or lose federal funding.


Offenders would also be required to undergo an alcohol, substance abuse and mental health assessment and receive treatment if necessary. The case would be added to state child abuse registries and states that fail to comply could have certain federal funding withheld by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation.


Rice’s claim that only motorists who have been convicted of DWI will be given mental health assessments is a lie. Why? Because it is already happening.


For the past three years, Police officers in Texas have been giving everyone they arrest, a mental health assessment.


Once at jail, anyone who is arrested will be screened for mental illness. The jail will send those results to judges to consider when setting bond. The county will also start using a risk assessment tool to arrive at an estimated level of danger and flight risk posed by each defendant.


H.R. 7099 would turn America’s police into psychologists with unimaginable powers.


(D) A law that—




Avoiding The Eye - Ships Free Today!



(i) requires the individual, if convicted of the offense, to undergo an alcohol abuse, substance abuse, or mental health assessment; and
(ii) if the assessment indicates a need for treatment, authorizes the appropriate court (or monitoring agency) to require the individual to undergo treatment as part of the individual’s sentence in connection with the conviction or as a condition for reissuance of a State driver’s license to the individual.


And if that wasn’t bad enough, Rice’s bill would turn drunk drivers into instant child abusers.


(E) A law that requires, if the individual is convicted of the offense and is the parent, guardian, or custodian of the child passenger or is otherwise legally responsible for the child passenger, the law enforcement agency that charges the individual with the offense or the appropriate court to file with the appropriate State register of child abuse a report on the individual concerning the offense.


Turning people into instant child abusers for having one alcoholic beverage or being judged mentally unfit by law enforcement is appalling.


The TAPS Act, the End Drunk Driving Act and the Prevent Impaired Driving Child Endangerment Act are all indicators that America is headed down a dark and dangerous road.

Activist Post has reported before about how digital, electronic, and wireless technology has created an already huge and increasing environmental E-Waste problem due to short life-spans and planned obsolesce.  Unfortunately, some self-proclaimed environmentalists continue to turn a blind eye to this (see 1, 2, 3) and still promote problematic technology as “green” despite E-Waste and other ways it is harmful biologically and environmentally (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).


A recent article from Time Magazine confirms the seriousness of E-Waste worldwide and emphasizes how 5G will make this MUCH WORSE:


         



      

“That stream (of E-Waste) is expected to turn into a torrent as the world upgrades to 5G, the next big step in wireless technology.”


“…50 million tons of e-waste generated globally last year–a number that stands to skyrocket as consumers replace their old devices with the newest 5G-ready gadgets money can buy.”


“But less than a quarter of all U.S. electronic waste is recycled….The rest is incinerated or ends up in landfills. That’s bad news, as e-waste can contain harmful materials like mercury and beryllium that pose environmental risks.”


“…technology companies are speeding the pace of obsolescence….”


“Our products today don’t last as long as they used to, and it’s a strategy by manufacturers to force us into shorter and shorter upgrade cycles…”






Activist Post has reported on the many ways that 5G is awful as well as its increasing worldwide opposition.

The press room at Judicial Watch sent out a Press Release June 7, 2019 wherein JW stated:


DOJ Documents Show Bruce Ohr Was Given a $28,000Bonus During Russiagate Investigation Plus a Raise.


Holy mackerel!  But why?


         



      

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, which were filed by JW in January, 2018, were fulfilled recently, and this is what came back:



The documents show that on November 13, 2016, Ohr was given a performance award of $28,000. This was during the time of his deep involvement in the highly controversial Justice Department surveillance of the Trump presidential campaign. The bonus was nearly double the $14,250 performance award he was given on November 29, 2015.


Bruce Ohr was married to Nellie Ohr of Fusion GPS and was removed because of his conflict of interest and role as conduit for Fusion GPS material. The documents show that Ohr was removed from his position as Associate Deputy Attorney General on December 6, 2017. On January 7, 2018, Ohr was reassigned from his position of director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) and shifted to Counselor for International Affairs in the Department of Justice Criminal Division. Ohr received a $2,600 pay increase.

“These documents will raise questions as to whether the conflicted Bruce Ohr, who the FBI used to launder information from Christopher Steele was rewarded for his role in the illicit targeting of President Trump,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. [CJF emphasis]


Judicial Watch has five current lawsuits pursuing information on Bruce Ohr.



Can anyone even imagine what eventual releases of the Mueller investigation documents by Attorney General William Barr will reveal further?

By Laraine C. Abbey-Katzev, RN (emeritus), MS, CNS


How much death or life-long health damage will it take for the world to wake up to the dark side of vaccines?  The stories are legion; the independent science stands in opposition to safety claims; the industry science is misleading, manipulated, and outright fraudulent in some cases. Scientific peer-reviewed journal articles, highlighting all manner of concerns, are steadily accumulating.


While the autism/vaccine debate rages on, MIT researcher Dr. Stephanie Seneff tells us (based on current trajectory) by the year 2032—50% of all children, and about most of the boys— will be autistic! How will they be cared for, and by whom—especially as they age and their parents pass away? How does a country survive if 50% of its children are severely disabled and in need of lifetime care? The astronomical cost of their desperately needed services will consume and destroy whatever is left of our economy.


         



      

Despite Big-Pharma’s wishful non-sense claim that the science is settled on vaccines and autism, independent observers, researchers, and health professionals are declaring in ever increasing numbers that vaccines are contributing to the exponential rise in autism, other chronic conditions—particularly auto-immune disorders.


Having tracked this issue over many years, it is beyond clear to me that we are trading PERCEIVED BENEFIT in vaccine-preventable infectious diseases, for damaged brains, dysfunctional immune systems and a growing list of vaccine induced chronic maladies that include childhood diabetes. J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab. 2003 Apr-May;16(4):495-508.; http://www.nvic.org/vaccines-and-diseases/Diabetes/juvenilediabetes.aspx


Autism, currently said to affect 3.5 million people, represents only a portion of the neuro-developmentally damaged youth that make up one-sixth of the kids we see in our classrooms today. When we view ALL types of chronic disorders the number rises to approximately 50%, a statistic never experienced until recent times. As a retired nurse, born when such percentages were unthinkable, I am heartbroken at our national loss of health.


While we can’t lay all this at the ‘feet of vaccination’, there are multitudes of unvaccinated children who have NONE of the disorders so exponential in our time. Families with vaccine damaged children who stop vaccinating their later-born children, consistently report how healthy and bright they are—no ear infections, no allergies, no asthma, no weird behaviors, no ADHD, and no autism!


This reality has come to awareness since the producers of the movie VAXXED began interviewing the families all over the country that came forward after showings of the movie to share their stories of vaccine injuries. These families, numbering in the thousands, have made it clear that vaccines are a major contributor to the death, disability and developmental damage with which our nation is besieged. If these problems were hereditary in nature, we would not see a clear divide these parents are describing between healthy unvaccinated and unhealthy vaccinated children within a given family. One would expect the likelihood of health problems to increase in later-born children rather than stop occurring altogether, as has been repeatedly described by parents.


The stories and insights of these thousands of families and from various internet groups and sites, including their comment sections, are helping to connect the dots of vaccine injury for disorders previously thought unrelated or labeled “coincidental” by physicians.


There is even evidence that getting some naturally occurring childhood diseases strengthen the immune system, which is beneficial to later health, such as wild type measles and mumps which appear to be associated with a reduction of certain types of cancers.


You may challenge my saying “perceived benefit” referring to reduction of infectious diseases, but the facts in recorded research on deaths and disability from dreaded diseases had sharply, and steadily, declined over the decades, independent of vaccines. Diseases such as yellow fever, plague, cholera, scarlet fever, and TB have mostly disappeared despite the vaccines for these diseases being either non-existent or not used in the United States.


Deaths in the United States, from the so-called ‘vaccine–preventable’ infectious diseases, had all but disappeared before the targeted vaccines had even been introduced—and this is according to our own CDC graphs!  It was NOT vaccines but public health advances and initiatives in sanitation, refrigeration and nutrition; as well as reductions in unhealthful environmental factors like reductions in crowded and poor living conditions that drastically reduced death and permanent disability from infectious diseases. Before the relevant vaccines entered distribution, individuals simply got sick, recovered and went on to have long-term or lifetime immunity.


Our government health agencies, with revolving door staffing from the pharmaceutical and medical industries are engaged in massive PR (public relations) campaigns spewing alarming death and disability statistics, which conveniently fail to mention severe disability and deaths from those infectious diseases occur almost exclusively outside the US in countries or regions with poor sanitation and malnutrition.


Vaccine proponent, Bill Gates, founder of GAVI Alliance (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization), could do real service to the world through a foundation by helping provide clean water, nutritional awareness, compost toilets and other community sanitation endeavors, rather than vaccines filled with health damaging substances, which are additive to the health damages of squalor. Many of these third-world vaccine programs have increased the incidence of the diseases they are supposed to prevent like the vaccine-induced polio outbreak in India.


Here’s an excellent article by Dr. Joe Mercola, DO, detailing some recently discovered disease effects from certain vaccines like Pandemrix resulting in a 400% increase in narcolepsy in Sweden with similar results in a Finnish study.


GSK’s Infanrix Hexavalent vaccine is associated with 69 [SIDS]deaths


The manufacturers had reported these sudden and unexpected deaths were not caused by the vaccine but were merely coincidental SIDS deaths. Dr Puliyel analyzed the data and found that 97% of deaths (65 deaths) following Infanrix hexa, occur in the first 10 days and only 3% (2 deaths) occur in the next 10 days. Had the deaths been coincidental SIDS deaths unrelated to vaccination, the numbers of deaths in the two 10-day periods should have been the same.


Since most SIDS deaths occur within 3 weeks of vaccination and the bulk of them within 3 days of vaccination it is clear that vaccines are strongly implicated in SIDS.



The manufacturers of this vaccine GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) disclosed in a confidential report to the Regulatory Authority that about 72 babies died within 20 days of receiving Infanrix hexa. They reported that the deaths of these children were due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome (SUDS) unrelated [to] vaccination. However an Italian Court of Justice Nicola Di Leo ordered that it be made public and is now available on the internet (http://autismoevaccini.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/vaccin-dc3a9cc3a8s.pdf)


Analysis of the data shows that at least 69 out of 72 deaths reported were likely to have been caused by the vaccine.


Infanrix hexa combines vaccines against 6 diseases [namely Diptheria, Tetanus and Acelluar Pertusis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, inactivated Poliomyelitis and Haemophilus influenza type B] in a single vaccine. The DPT vaccine, Hepatitis B, Hib and injectable Polio Pentavalent vaccine deemed responsible for more than 237 deaths. Jacob Puliyel, MD November 2016–Under Right to Information we know that up to August 2016 there have been 237 deaths reported to the government here within 72 hours of vaccination with Pentavalent. We examined deaths in states which were giving DPT and Pentavalent vaccine concurrently. There were three deaths following the use of Pentavalent vaccine in Sri Lanka. The Government of Sri Lanka suspended the use of the vaccine. WHO experts investigated the deaths. They found there was a clear temporal association of the deaths.



The report maintained that although it was probably related to vaccine, they were reporting it as “unlikely” to be related to vaccination.


The full report was not published online, only the conclusion was made public.


The full report was presented to the Delhi High Court in a vaccine case. Once this devious methodology employed by the WHO experts was known, it was exposed by the British Medical Journal.


Powerful forces within the pharmaceutical and medical industry are colluding with each other and government agencies in the deliberate concealment of vaccine damage, in my and many others’ opinions.  I see it as racketeering on a grand scale, not unlike the tobacco science of yesteryear, the Hinckley Water/PG2&E lawsuit of Erin Brockovich fame, and the corporate and government concealment of the Love Canal health disaster. For those unaware and interested, read the story and get the book Love Canal: and the Birth of the Environmental Health Movement by Lois Marie Gibbs. Also, recall the Vioxx heart attacks affair in which Merck plotted to destroy those bringing that to light.


I was struck by Gibbs section title: How Many More Children Must We Lose Before a Decision Is Made? …followed by her comment, “It took me a long time to give up the idea that the state and the health department would do what is right and just.” (p.147).


I’m asking the same question regarding exposure of the real dangers of vaccines. As Gibbs notes, the powers-that-be in industry and government do not do the “right and just” thing.


Remember the commercials touting physician recommendations of this or that brand of cigarettes? One company actually claimed their cigarette would “soothe your throat.”


This horrific abuse of our children must stop, but it will not be industry or government that saves them. It will take an uprising by families and the good ethical physicians who care for them. It will require the courts, in response to lawsuits, to weigh the evidence and issue judgements. The uprising of parents, and those who serve their damaged children, will have to stop this vaccine public relations errant freight train aimed squarely at every living being.


The ability to bring lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injuries from their individual improperly tested products, promoted as safe and effective based on manipulated and fraudulent research was dealt a death blow with the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Program as an alternative remedy to judicial action for specified vaccine-related injuries. You might wonder why this act was passed.  There were simply too many lawsuits, so vaccine producers threatened to stop producing such vaccines. Too many lawsuits! Do you hear that?


Nothing in that act protects industry from lawsuits proving manipulated or fraudulent research and concealing knowledge of harms. Mandating of vaccines will be stopped in its tracks, when all the newest independent (non-pharma) science is effectively garnered demonstrating the falsity of the current ‘religion’ of vaccinology.


Why, in my opinion, is this clear-cut racketeering? It should be obvious to all but the most naïve, that there is an aggressive media marketing campaign backed by a well-orchestrated industry agenda that is misrepresenting both the benefits and the harms associated with vaccines.  Why would they do that?  Follow the money, as they say.


I’ve experienced first-hand what I feel is collusion some years back at an open-to-the-public


Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) hearing at the FDA in Rockville, MD in which a false statement was issued of no abnormal rate of miscarriages among pregnant woman following flu vaccination, when in fact there were large numbers of such events reported through the governments Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), as presented in testimony by Ms. Eileen Dannemann, director of the National Coalition of Organized Women, whose survey was included in this study:


Gary Goldman, PhD: 4250% increase in fetal deaths via VAERS after flu vaccines 2009-2010 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3888271/)Hum Exp Toxicol. 2013 May; 32(5): 464–475.
doi:10.1177/0960327112455067






I made repeated efforts by email and then phone calls to their respective offices to clarify the discrepancy, first with its presenter Marie McCormick, MD, and later to another committee member, but all to no avail.


More recently, Ms. Dannemann captured evidence that sure feels like collusion and racketeering in this March 2017 email statement:


“103 bills this legislative session in 30 states…why would there be such a coordination nationally when states have their independent, non federal [SIC] jurisdiction on vaccines?  Because…each State Health Dept is a coordinated long arm of the CDC.  And the “health advisory committees” ​on which the general legislators depend​ on is stacked!  We need to acknowledge this fact that the State Health Depts are being coordinated by the CDC which due to the CDC whistleblower Dr. Thompson is being investigated for fraud concerning the link between vaccines and autism, t​hey can not [SIC] depend on information coming from their Health Advisory Committees.”


So, what’s wrong with vaccines—as Elizabeth Barrett Browning once wrote, “Let me count the ways.”http://vaccineliberationarmy.com/2017/02/03/intl-journal-vaccines-vaccinations-study-vaccines-dirty/http://prepareforchange.net/2017/02/03/dirty-vaccines-every-human-vaccine-tested-was-contaminated-with-metals-and-debris-in-new-study/


Aluminum, a brain neurotoxin, present in most vaccines as an adjuvant, produces an antigen response, and has been identified as hazardous to adults undergoing kidney dialysis and via accumulation in the brain of Alzheimer’s dementia. We are injecting ever-larger amounts of hazmat materials, including aluminum and mercury, into our kids!


Many unwanted vaccines must be disposed as hazardous material.


Behavioral abnormalities in female mice following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil:http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12026-016-8826-6


Gardasil vaccination is noted by many vaccine experts as damaging to health and based on fraudulent science.  Watch this emotional video in which doctors and vaccine injured families speak out. More information and emotional stories at www.sanevax.org


The powers-that-be and the phony front groups they’ve created don’t want a Vaccine Safety Commission. Truth seekers would not oppose a Vaccine Safety Commission, so who is really opposing? Here’s your answer: http://ahrp.org/why-would-anybody-not-want-a-vaccine-safety-assessment/ Yale study links vaccines to neurological disorders in children” published by researchers at Pennsylvania State University and Yale Child Study Center correlated neuropsychiatric disorders in children to vaccines. The study was published in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry (2017).

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., “…not only that the science they were citing me was bogus, but that they knew it was weak, and they were unwilling to defend it in front of informed criticism. And that shocked me because…I was used to environmental agencies becoming captured, but a public health agency that is charged with protection the health of our children, to lie about science and to manipulate science, which is what they were doing, just seemed criminal.  RFK, Jr. specifically cited communication with Paul Offit and Kathleen Stratton at CDC as who he was referring to regarding these conversations.


Some CDC insiders have told journalist Jennifer Margulis, PhD, co-author of The Vaccine Friendly Plan, OFF THE RECORD that they do not follow the CDC schedule for their own children because their research of the science shows them it is not safe.


The Mantra of no studies showing problems with vaccines is an “absolute lie” according to Neil Z. Miller who stated, “There are hundreds, if not thousands of such studies in peer-reviewed journals documenting safety and efficacy problems associated with vaccines.” He edited this in his 2016 book citing 400 of them: “Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Summarized for Parent and Researchers.”



Speaking of safety, read what Mahin Khatami, PhD, Molecular/Cellular Biologist, Immunologist, Retired from NCI/NIH has to say on the topic—“Safety Concerns and Hidden Agenda Behind HPV Vaccines: Another Generation of Drug-Dependent Society?” Mahin Khatami, author, December 2016.


Then consider this—repeating a lie makes it seem true.


And finally…If you still believe the lie that vaccines are safe and effective explore this on the current hot media topic of measles:https://physiciansforinformedconsent.org/measles/

Chicago, IL — Thomas J. Franzen, 37, has never been arrested or committed a crime before he was diagnosed with stage three testicular cancer that has spread to both his lungs and abdominal cavity last year. However, because government claims the authority to throw people in jail over a plant, Franzen’s self-medication process for his cancer has now landed him in prison—for the next four years.


Last month, Franzen was forced to plead guilty in Kane County Circuit Court to possession of more than 5,000 grams (176 ounces) of cannabis, a felony that carried a prison term from 12 to 60 years. He ordered THC-infused chocolates from California to treat his cancer and he will now be put in a cage for it.


         



      

Because Franzen ordered such a large amount of the chocolates from California, police accused him of trafficking it, so prosecutors — who had to take this “dangerous drug dealer” of the streets — followed through with the case.


Luckily for Franzen, however, at least one of the prosecutors showed him some compassion for his cancer and they knocked the distribution charges down to possession.


“He’s very relieved to have the case over,” Franzen’s attorney David Camic said. “The judge was cognizant of his health and wanted to give him a break, but ultimately 40 pounds of cannabis is a large amount.”


Sadly, Franzen will now be thrown in a cage as he continues to battle cancer, and he will not have the added help of the cannabis.


“In recognition of the seriousness of Mr. Franzen’s medical condition, our office reduced a 12-year mandatory minimum sentence to 4 years, of which he is required to serve only 2 years,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said in the statement. “We did this in spite of evidence that proves that Mr. Franzen is a drug dealer.”


On June 14, Franzen will be locked in a cage — despite never causing harm to anyone, and despite the fact that Illinois just passed a bill last month that legalizes the possession and commercial sale of marijuana in the state. That bill is awaiting Governor JB Pritzker’s signature.


Naturally, Franzen’s case is infuriating to many folks, especially considering the fact that child rapists often get far less stricter sentences.








“He got the best disposition that was available given the constraints of Illinois law,” Camic told CNN. But the constraints of the law are immoral.


Franzen’s case is especially egregious considering the fact that cannabis has been documented to kill cancer cells. The government is going to lock him in a cage for quite literally saving his own life with a plant.


As TFTP has reported, in April 2015 the National Institute of Drug Abuse acknowledged that cannabis kills cancer cells and dramatically reduces the growth of new brain cancer cells. This was a startling admission, considering that federal government’s position on cannabis retains it as a Schedule 1 drug with “no medical benefit.”


Research has continued despite this roadblock, and now the pharmaceutical industry even admits it.


British company GW Pharmaceuticals has been testing cannabis extracts for the past few years, and now has clinical evidence that certain formulations reduce the mortality rate of people with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), a form of brain cancer that typically kills patients within two years.


Combined with temozolomide, the current medication used to treat GBM, patients’ median survival was more than 550 days, compared to 369 days without the cannabis treatment. The CBD (cannabidiol)-THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) treatment helped produced an 83 percent one-year survival rate, compared with 53 percent for non-cannabis patients.

Prior studies had shown that a CBD-THC combination “led to a synergistic reduction in the viability of U87MG glioma cells,” and the “co-administration of temozolomide with THC and CBD had further synergistic effects, causing a significant reduction in cell viability.”


In their press release, GW noted that there is substantial oncologic research on cannabinoids to treat several forms of cancer, with 15 publications on the positive effects on tumor growth and suppression – especially in promoting autophagy, or “the process of regulated self-degradation by cells.”


“We believe that the signals of efficacy demonstrated in this study further reinforce the potential role of cannabinoids in the field of oncology and provide GW with the prospect of a new and distinct cannabinoid product candidate in the treatment of glioma,” said CEO Justin Gover.


Science be damned, however, when it comes to the state.

A “perfect storm” is brewing for Midwestern farmers. Unending rains have led to the flooding of tens of millions of acres of farmland. The deluge comes on the heels of years of low crop prices.


It has the makings of an agriculture disaster on a scale never seen before.


The nation may see a “perfect storm” in terms of food inflation. Prices for some farm commodities figure to be a lot higher in the months ahead as markets adjust to dramatically lower crop yields. This will be coupled with price hikes associated with tariffs on all manner of goods from China and elsewhere.


To top it off, the Fed is signaling a reversal. The next move in interest rates now figures to be lower.


         



      

Grain and soybean prices are already on the move. Corn prices began climbing rapidly in early May. Today the price per bushel is 20% higher than a month ago. Wheat prices are 7% above the lows of a month ago, and soybeans are 11% higher.


Chinese tariffs on U.S. agricultural products pushed prices lower earlier in the year. However, the longer-term effect of those particular tariffs may wind up being less than many think. The market for food commodities is global and demand is somewhat inelastic.


More than a billion Chinese need to be fed. What they don’t purchase directly from the U.S. will need to be purchased elsewhere. We can expect to see an increase in American exports to other places.




CPI Inflation Surpassed 3% in Past Year

CPI Inflation Surpassed 3% in Past Year




President Trump increased the tariffs on Chinese imports from 10% to 25%. Americans can look forward to paying higher costs for many consumer goods in the months ahead. The chart below shows recent CPI data through April.


Costco told investors to watch for higher prices on the merchandise they sell in the most recent earnings call. The retail giant recently declared “prices will go up on things.”


Fed Chair Powell is using the tariffs and the prospect of price inflation as justification for changing course. He said last week the central bank “will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion.” He and his cohorts stand ready to combat a weakening jobs market and dwindling international trade by lowering interest rates.


Bond yields are deeply inverted. Historically inversions of this sort have been a dark omen. They often signal a recession and falling stock prices.






Given the central bankers’ obsession with stock prices and ongoing pressure from the Trump administration to avoid any major correction, the Fed moving preemptively to cut interest rates isn’t surprising.


However, it isn’t at all certain that lowering rates now can forestall what is coming. Individuals and corporations have already binged on debt. The growing mountain of borrowed money is weakening the nation’s economic prospects, not making them stronger.


S&P Forward Earnings Expectations


The adjacent chart is telling:


Stock prices are riding upon the “Fed Put.” There is no great earnings strength anymore. Stock investors simply won’t sell stocks because they anticipate the Fed will step in with stimulus.


That expectation is 100% logical given the central bank’s track record. But logic also dictates something else: stock prices will one day reflect earnings reality.

If lowering rates doesn’t work to prop up stock prices, we can count on the Fed to double down by dropping rates again or by finding even more exotic and aggressive ways to stimulate.


This all amounts to bad news for the U.S. dollar and for consumers who will have to contend with higher prices.


But there is a silver lining for precious metals investors…


Concerns over price inflation have been absent from the markets for nearly a decade. Gold and silver markets are heavily reliant upon safe-haven demand as a key driver. With powerful inflationary forces now building, that demand looks like it’s about to surge.

Once upon a time, school field trips didn’t involve strapping goggles onto kids’ faces to intentionally expose them to harmful (and sometimes blinding) blue light and harmful (and sometimes cancerous) Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). But that’s how Virtual Reality (VR) works – not by magic.


That’s why scientists asked Google and schools to stop promoting and sponsoring these “trips” over 3 years ago.



Environmental Health Trust (EHT) scientists are calling on Google to stop the spread into schools of wireless virtual reality system Global Expeditions Pioneer Program where middle-school children hold a cell phone encased in a cardboard box in front of their eyes to take virtual expeditions to Mars, the moon, and other special places.


“Two-way microwave radiation transceivers, in the form of Smartphones, should not be used directly in front of children’s eyes and brains,” cautions University of Utah Distinguished Prof. Om Gandhi, who is one of the original developers of testing to evaluate wireless radiation from cellphones and is a Senior Advisor to EHT.



         



      


Since 2012, The American Academy of Pediatrics has been issuing warnings about children’s exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices and infrastructure.  Research had already proven that children were more vulnerable to it.  Unfortunately, that didn’t seem to be enough for Google and schools from strapping goggles onto kids’ faces for “trips.”


Inside these the cool cardboard boxes Google gave the kids, there is a cheap smartphone. The phones are wirelessly connected through a special router to an iPad the teacher uses to lead them through this “adventure” to far away lands


Additional research has been released since these scientists made their appeal and more warnings from multiple sources have been issued especially regarding kids’ exposure (see 1, 2).


Not only that, there is still no “safe” level of radiation exposure that has been scientifically determined for children or pregnant women.


Last but certainly not least – for many years already – Silicon Valley parents have gone to great lengths to limit their own kids’ use of screens.  It’s been reported recently that they are taking more extreme measures to shield their kids from tech.  This includes spying on their nannies and making them sign “no screen” contracts.


It’s one thing if parents allow their kids to use harmful devices at home.  It’s another thing when schools use them as part of their curriculums.  After all, Google won’t be the only one that may eventually be held liable for harming students.

By John W. Whitehead


“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984


Tread cautiously: the fiction of George Orwell has become an operation manual for the omnipresent, modern-day surveillance state.


It’s been 70 years since Orwell—dying, beset by fever and bloody coughing fits, and driven to warn against the rise of a society in which rampant abuse of power and mass manipulation are the norm—depicted the ominous rise of ubiquitous technology, fascism and totalitarianism in 1984.


         



      

Who could have predicted that 70 years after Orwell typed the final words to his dystopian novel, “He loved Big Brother,” we would fail to heed his warning and come to love Big Brother.


“To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are different from one another and do not live alone— to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone: From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink — greetings!”—George Orwell


1984 portrays a global society of total control in which people are not allowed to have thoughts that in any way disagree with the corporate state. There is no personal freedom, and advanced technology has become the driving force behind a surveillance-driven society. Snitches and cameras are everywhere. People are subject to the Thought Police, who deal with anyone guilty of thought crimes. The government, or “Party,” is headed by Big Brother who appears on posters everywhere with the words: “Big Brother is watching you.”


We have arrived, way ahead of schedule, into the dystopian future dreamed up by not only Orwell but also such fiction writers as Aldous Huxley, Margaret Atwood and Philip K. Dick.


“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”―George Orwell


Much like Orwell’s Big Brother in 1984, the government and its corporate spies now watch our every move. Much like Huxley’s A Brave New World, we are churning out a society of watchers who “have their liberties taken away from them, but … rather enjoy it, because they [are] distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing.” Much like Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the populace is now taught to “know their place and their duties, to understand that they have no real rights but will be protected up to a point if they conform, and to think so poorly of themselves that they will accept their assigned fate and not rebel or run away.”


And in keeping with Philip K. Dick’s darkly prophetic vision of a dystopian police state—which became the basis for Steven Spielberg’s futuristic thriller Minority Report—we are now trapped in a world in which the government is all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful, and if you dare to step out of line, dark-clad police SWAT teams and pre-crime units will crack a few skulls to bring the populace under control.


What once seemed futuristic no longer occupies the realm of science fiction.


Incredibly, as the various nascent technologies employed and shared by the government and corporations alike—facial recognition, iris scanners, massive databases, behavior prediction software, and so on—are incorporated into a complex, interwoven cyber network aimed at tracking our movements, predicting our thoughts and controlling our behavior, the dystopian visions of past writers is fast becoming our reality.


Our world is characterized by widespread surveillance, behavior prediction technologies, data mining, fusion centers, driverless cars, voice-controlled homes, facial recognition systems, cybugs and drones, and predictive policing (pre-crime) aimed at capturing would-be criminals before they can do any damage.


Surveillance cameras are everywhere. Government agents listen in on our telephone calls and read our emails. Political correctness—a philosophy that discourages diversity—has become a guiding principle of modern society.


“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”―George Orwell


The courts have shredded the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures. In fact, SWAT teams battering down doors without search warrants and FBI agents acting as a secret police that investigate dissenting citizens are common occurrences in contemporary America. And bodily privacy and integrity have been utterly eviscerated by a prevailing view that Americans have no rights over what happens to their bodies during an encounter with government officials, who are allowed to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.


“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”―George Orwell, Animal Farm


We are increasingly ruled by multi-corporations wedded to the police state.


What many fail to realize is that the government is not operating alone. It cannot. The government requires an accomplice. Thus, the increasingly complex security needs of the massive federal government, especially in the areas of defense, surveillance and data management, have been met within the corporate sector, which has shown itself to be a powerful ally that both depends on and feeds the growth of governmental overreach.


In fact, Big Tech wedded to Big Government has become Big Brother, and we are now ruled by the Corporate Elite whose tentacles have spread worldwide. For example, USA Today reports that five years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the homeland security business was booming to such an extent that it eclipsed mature enterprises like movie-making and the music industry in annual revenue. This security spending to private corporations such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft and others is forecast to exceed $1 trillion in the near future.


The government now has at its disposal technological arsenals so sophisticated and invasive as to render any constitutional protections null and void. Spearheaded by the NSA, which has shown itself to care little to nothing for constitutional limits or privacy, the “security/industrial complex”—a marriage of government, military and corporate interests aimed at keeping Americans under constant surveillance—has come to dominate the government and our lives. At three times the size of the CIA, constituting one third of the intelligence budget and with its own global spy network to boot, the NSA has a long history of spying on Americans, whether or not it has always had the authorization to do so.


Money, power, control. There is no shortage of motives fueling the convergence of mega-corporations and government. But who is paying the price? The American people, of course.


Orwell understood what many Americans, caught up in their partisan flag-waving, are still struggling to come to terms with: that there is no such thing as a government organized for the good of the people. Even the best intentions among those in government inevitably give way to the desire to maintain power and control over the citizenry at all costs. As Orwell explains:


The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.


“The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it.” ― George Orwell


How do you change the way people think? You start by changing the words they use.


In totalitarian regimes—a.k.a. police states—where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used. In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind.


Dystopian literature shows what happens when the populace is transformed into mindless automatons. In Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, reading is banned and books are burned in order to suppress dissenting ideas, while televised entertainment is used to anesthetize the populace and render them easily pacified, distracted and controlled.


In Huxley’s Brave New World, serious literature, scientific thinking and experimentation are banned as subversive, while critical thinking is discouraged through the use of conditioning, social taboos and inferior education. Likewise, expressions of individuality, independence and morality are viewed as vulgar and abnormal.


And in Orwell’s 1984, Big Brother does away with all undesirable and unnecessary words and meanings, even going so far as to routinely rewrite history and punish “thoughtcrimes.” In this dystopian vision of the future, the Thought Police serve as the eyes and ears of Big Brother, while the Ministry of Peace deals with war and defense, the Ministry of Plenty deals with economic affairs (rationing and starvation), the Ministry of Love deals with law and order (torture and brainwashing), and the Ministry of Truth deals with news, entertainment, education and art (propaganda). The mottos of Oceania: WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.


All three—Bradbury, Huxley and Orwell—had an uncanny knack for realizing the future, yet it is Orwell who best understood the power of language to manipulate the masses. Orwell’s Big Brother relied on Newspeak to eliminate undesirable words, strip such words as remained of unorthodox meanings and make independent, non-government-approved thought altogether unnecessary. To give a single example, as psychologist Erich Fromm illustrates in his afterword to 1984:


The word free still existed in Newspeak, but it could only be used in such statements as “This dog is free from lice” or “This field is free from weeds.” It could not be used in its old sense of “politically free” or “intellectually free,” since political and intellectual freedom no longer existed as concepts….


Where we stand now is at the juncture of OldSpeak (where words have meanings, and ideas can be dangerous) and Newspeak (where only that which is “safe” and “accepted” by the majority is permitted). The power elite has made their intentions clear: they will pursue and prosecute any and all words, thoughts and expressions that challenge their authority.

“Until they became conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”—George Orwell


Americans have been conditioned to accept routine incursions on their privacy rights. In fact, the addiction to screen devices—especially cell phones—has created a hive effect where the populace not only watched but is controlled by AI bots. However, at one time, the idea of a total surveillance state tracking one’s every move would have been abhorrent to most Americans. That all changed with the 9/11 attacks. As professor Jeffrey Rosen observes, “Before Sept. 11, the idea that Americans would voluntarily agree to live their lives under the gaze of a network of biometric surveillance cameras, peering at them in government buildings, shopping malls, subways and stadiums, would have seemed unthinkable, a dystopian fantasy of a society that had surrendered privacy and anonymity.”


Having been reduced to a cowering citizenry—mute in the face of elected officials who refuse to represent us, helpless in the face of police brutality, powerless in the face of militarized tactics and technology that treat us like enemy combatants on a battlefield, and naked in the face of government surveillance that sees and hears all—we have nowhere left to go.


We have, so to speak, gone from being a nation where privacy is king to one where nothing is safe from the prying eyes of government. In search of so-called terrorists and extremists hiding amongst us—the proverbial “needle in a haystack,” as one official termed it—the Corporate State has taken to monitoring all aspects of our lives, from cell phone calls and emails to Internet activity and credit card transactions. Much of this data is being fed through fusion centers across the country, which work with the Department of Homeland Security to make threat assessments on every citizen, including school children. These are state and regional intelligence centers that collect data on you.


“Big Brother is Watching You.”―George Orwell


Wherever you go and whatever you do, you are now being watched, especially if you leave behind an electronic footprint. When you use your cell phone, you leave a record of when the call was placed, who you called, how long it lasted and even where you were at the time. When you use your ATM card, you leave a record of where and when you used the card. There is even a video camera at most locations equipped with facial recognition software. When you use a cell phone or drive a car enabled with GPS, you can be tracked by satellite. Such information is shared with government agents, including local police. And all of this once-private information about your consumer habits, your whereabouts and your activities is now being fed to the U.S. government.


The government has nearly inexhaustible resources when it comes to tracking our movements, from electronic wiretapping devices, traffic cameras and biometrics to radio-frequency identification cards, satellites and Internet surveillance.


Speech recognition technology now makes it possible for the government to carry out massive eavesdropping by way of sophisticated computer systems. Phone calls can be monitored, the audio converted to text files and stored in computer databases indefinitely. And if any “threatening” words are detected—no matter how inane or silly—the record can be flagged and assigned to a government agent for further investigation. Federal and state governments, again working with private corporations, monitor your Internet content. Users are profiled and tracked in order to identify, target and even prosecute them.


In such a climate, everyone is a suspect. And you’re guilty until you can prove yourself innocent. To underscore this shift in how the government now views its citizens, the FBI uses its wide-ranging authority to investigate individuals or groups, regardless of whether they are suspected of criminal activity.


“Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull.” ― George Orwell


Here’s what a lot of people fail to understand, however: it’s not just what you say or do that is being monitored, but how you think that is being tracked and targeted. We’ve already seen this play out on the state and federal level with hate crime legislation that cracks down on so-called “hateful” thoughts and expression, encourages self-censoring and reduces free debate on various subject matter.


Say hello to the new Thought Police.


Total Internet surveillance by the Corporate State, as omnipresent as God, is used by the government to predict and, more importantly, control the populace, and it’s not as far-fetched as you might think. For example, the NSA is now designing an artificial intelligence system that is designed to anticipate your every move. In a nutshell, the NSA will feed vast amounts of the information it collects to a computer system known as Aquaint (the acronym stands for Advanced QUestion Answering for INTelligence), which the computer can then use to detect patterns and predict behavior.


No information is sacred or spared.


Everything from cell phone recordings and logs, to emails, to text messages, to personal information posted on social networking sites, to credit card statements, to library circulation records, to credit card histories, etc., is collected by the NSA and shared freely with its agents in crime: the CIA, FBI and DHS. One NSA researcher actually quit the Aquaint program, “citing concerns over the dangers in placing such a powerful weapon in the hands of a top-secret agency with little accountability.”


Thus, what we are witnessing, in the so-called name of security and efficiency, is the creation of a new class system comprised of the watched (average Americans such as you and me) and the watchers (government bureaucrats, technicians and private corporations).

Clearly, the age of privacy in America is at an end.


“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”—Orwell


So where does that leave us?


We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed and controlled by our technology, which answers not to us but to our government and corporate rulers. This is the fact-is-stranger-than-fiction lesson that is being pounded into us on a daily basis.


It won’t be long before we find ourselves looking back on the past with longing, back to an age where we could speak to whom we wanted, buy what we wanted, think what we wanted without those thoughts, words and activities being tracked, processed and stored by corporate giants such as Google, sold to government agencies such as the NSA and CIA, and used against us by militarized police with their army of futuristic technologies.


To be an individual today, to not conform, to have even a shred of privacy, and to live beyond the reach of the government’s roaming eyes and technological spies, one must not only be a rebel but rebel.


Even when you rebel and take your stand, there is rarely a happy ending awaiting you. You are rendered an outlaw.


So how do you survive in the American surveillance state?


We’re running out of options.


As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we’ll soon have to choose between self-indulgence (the bread-and-circus distractions offered up by the news media, politicians, sports conglomerates, entertainment industry, etc.) and self-preservation in the form of renewed vigilance about threats to our freedoms and active engagement in self-governance.


Yet as Aldous Huxley acknowledged in Brave New World Revisited: “Only the vigilant can maintain their liberties, and only those who are constantly and intelligently on the spot can hope to govern themselves effectively by democratic procedures. A society, most of whose members spend a great part of their time, not on the spot, not here and now and in their calculable future, but somewhere else, in the irrelevant other worlds of sport and soap opera, of mythology and metaphysical fantasy, will find it hard to resist the encroachments of those would manipulate and control it.”

A teenager who has been imprisoned by the Saudi Arabian government for nearly 5 years is facing execution for taking part in a protest that happened 8 years ago when he was just 10 years old. Murtaja Qureiris was initially arrested when he was 13 years old, 3 years after an Arab Spring related protest that he took part in.


He has spent at least 15 months of his 5 years in prison isolated in solitary confinement.


The Saudi government has charged him with engaging in anti-government protests, possession of a firearm and they also allege that he was affiliated with a terrorist organization. A boy that was only ten years old at the time is accused of being a gun-wielding terrorist, and now they want to torture and kill him, then mutilate his body.


The prosecutor in the case has recommended that after the now 18-year-old young man is killed, his body should be dismembered, or crucified.


A video that was obtained by CNN, shows Qureiris at ten years old, leading a young group of Shia protesters through the street on his bike.






When Qureiris was arrested, he was the youngest known political prisoner at the time.






CNN reported that the prosecution’s case is built entirely on forced confessions and that Qureiris is now denying the charges that he initially confessed to.


Human rights groups have been pleading with the Saudi government to not execute the young man.


Lynn Maalouf, Amnesty International’s Middle East research director, says that this case shows the ruthlessness of the Saudi government.


“There should be no doubt that the Saudi Arabian authorities are ready to go to any length to crack down on dissent against their own citizens, including by resorting to the death penalty for men who were merely boys at the time of their arrest,” Maalouf said.


Saudi Arabia has been notorious for its brutal regime for many years, but its tactics have become even more violent and inhumane since the Arab Spring. The regime has become even more tyrannical in order to assert its dominance and scare its subjects into submission.


The country performed at least 158 executions in 2015, then at least 154 in 2016, and a minimum of 146 executions in 2017. The regime has also continued to shock the world with its mass executions, which include both beheadings and crucifixions.


Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia announced executed 37 men, all of whom were accused of being terrorists. However, a vast majority of those executed were members of the country’s Shia minority, who have been protesting for freedom and equal rights, just as young Qureiris was.

If Qureiris is executed as planned, he will become the fourth teenager to be killed by the Saudi government this year.


The Saudi government has essentially been a puppet dictatorship for the US for many years, so despite their terrible human rights record and their history of fostering terrorism, they maintain a good relationship with most Western nations. Meanwhile, the US military uses these excuses to invade other regions in the Middle East where the leadership is less cooperative with their interests, all the while ignoring that the Saudi government is considerably more brutal than the states that are currently targeted for regime change by the US.
