Washington Drives The World To War

WW3isComingBy Paul Craig Roberts
April 16, 2014

The CIA director was sent to Kiev to launch a military suppression of the Russian separatists in the eastern and southern portions of Ukraine, former Russian territories for the most part that were foolishly attached to the Ukraine in the early years of Soviet rule.

Washington’s plan to grab Ukraine overlooked that the Russian and Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine were not likely to go along with their insertion into the EU and NATO while submitting to the persecution of Russian speaking peoples. Washington has lost Crimea, from which Washington intended to eject Russia from its Black Sea naval base. Instead of admitting that its plan for grabbing Ukraine has gone amiss, Washington is unable to admit a mistake and, therefore, is pushing the crisis to more dangerous levels.

If Ukraine dissolves into secession with the former Russian territories reverting to Russia, Washington will be embarrassed that the result of its coup in Kiev was to restore the Russian provinces of Ukraine to Russia. To avoid this embarrassment, Washington is pushing the crisis toward war.

The CIA director instructed Washington’s hand-picked stooge government in Kiev to apply to the United Nations for help in repelling “terrorists” who with alleged Russian help are allegedly attacking Ukraine. In Washington’s vocabulary, self-determination is a sign of Russian interference. As the UN is essentially a Washington-financed organization, Washington will get what it wants.

The Russian government has already made it completely clear some weeks ago that the use of violence against protesters in eastern and southern Ukraine would compel the Russian government to send in the Russian army to protect Russians, just as Russia had to do in South Ossetia when Washington instructed its Georgian puppet ruler to attack Russian peacekeeping troops and Russian residents of South Ossetia.

Washington knows that the Russian government cannot stand aside while one of Washington’s puppet states attacks Russians. Yet, Washington is pushing the crisis to war.

The danger for Russia is that the Russian government will rely on diplomacy, international organizations, international cooperation, and on the common sense and self-interest of German politicians and politicians in other of Washington’s European puppet states.

For Russia this could be a fatal mistake. There is no good will in Washington, only mendacity. Russian delay provides Washington with time to build up forces on Russia’s borders and in the Black Sea and to demonize Russia with propaganda and whip up the US population into a war frenzy. The latter is already occurring.

Kerry has made it clear to Lavrov that Washington is not listening to Russia. As Washington pays well, Washington’s European puppets are also not listening to Russia. Money is more important to European politicians than humanity’s survival.

In my opinion, Washington does not want the Ukraine matters settled in a diplomatic and reasonable way. It might be the case that Russia’s best move is immediately to occupy the Russian territories of Ukraine and re-absorb the territories into Russia from whence they came. This should be done before the US and its NATO puppets are prepared for war. It is more difficult for Washington to start a war when the objects of the war have already been lost. Russia will be demonized with endless propaganda from Washington whether or not Russia re-absorbs its traditional territories. If Russia allows these territories to be suppressed by Washington, the prestige and authority of the Russian government will collapse. Perhaps that is what Washington is counting on.

If Putin’s government stands aside while Russian Ukraine is suppressed, Putin’s prestige will plummet, and Washington will finish off the Russian government by putting into action its many hundreds of Washington-financed NGOs that the Russian government has so foolishly tolerated. Russia is riven with Washington’s Fifth columns.

In my opinion, the Russian and Chinese governments have made serious strategic mistakes by remaining within the US dollar-based international payments system. The BRICS and any others with a brain should instantly desert the dollar system, which is a mechanism for US imperialism. The countries of the BRICS should immediately create their own separate payments system and their own exclusive communications/Internet system.

Russia and China have stupidly made these strategic mistakes, because reeling from communist failures and oppressions, they naively assumed that Washington was pure, that Washington was committed to its propagandistic self-description as the upholder of law, justice, mercy,and human rights.

In fact, Washington, the “exceptional, indispensable country,” is committed to its hegemony over the world. Russia, China, and Iran are in the way of Washington’s hegemony and are targeted for attack.

The attack on Russia is mounting.


10 Health Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be Real

medical-conspiracy-theoriesMarch 24, 2014
By Michael Snyder

Do you believe in any “health conspiracy theories”? Do you believe that there are “natural cures” for diseases that the medical establishment is not telling you about? Do you believe that vaccines, cell phones or the fluoride in the water can have a harmful impact on the health of your family? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are not alone. According to one recent survey, approximately half of all Americans believe in at least one “medical conspiracy theory”. Thanks to the Internet, more people than ever are questioning the established dogma of the medical community. As a result, more people are starting to make their own health decisions, and this has resulted in quite a backlash from the medical establishment. They are spending a lot of time, effort and money to combat these “health conspiracy theories”.

Fortunately, the truth is starting to get out there. The following are 10 health conspiracy theories that turned out to be real…

· Unvaccinated Children Are Far Healthier Than Vaccinated Children

·The Use Of Antidepressants By Mothers Has Been Scientifically Linked To Autism In Their Babies

·The Fluoride In Our Water Is Really Bad For Us

·Taking Vitamins And Supplements Can Help Cure Disease

·The Overprescription Of Antibiotics Is Causing The Rise Of Antibiotic-Resistant “Superbugs”

·Hospitals Are Massively Overcharging Their Patients

·Thanks To The Big Pharmaceutical Companies, Americans Are The Most Drugged Up People On The Face Of The Earth

·Caffeine Addiction Is Real And It Can Be Incredibly Difficult To Break

·Eating Pork Is Really Bad For You

· If You Are Eating Seafood Caught In The Pacific Ocean, There Is A Very Good Chance That It Is Polluted With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima


Kiev preperes to attack civilian protesters in eastern Ukraine

Ukraine’s coup-installed president, Aleksandr Turchinov, has proposed the conducting of a joint operation with UN peacekeeping forces, signing a decree immediately imposing a special anti-terrorist operation in the east of the country…..

On Sunday evening Kiev threatened “full-scale” military force if protesters and paramilitaries declined to vacate occupied government buildings by a Monday morning deadline…..



agenda21 death starBy The Post Sustainability Institute

UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals,all construction,all means of production, all energy,all education,all information, andall human beings in the world.

Considering that its policies are woven into all the General Plans of the cities and counties, it’s important for people to know where these policies are coming from. While many people support the United Nations for its ‘peacemaking’ efforts, few know that they have very specific land use policies that they expect to see implemented in every city, county, state and nation. The specific plan is called United Nations Agenda 21 Sustainable Development, whichhas its basis in Communitarianism. By now, most Americans have heard of sustainable development but are largely unaware of Agenda 21.


The War Against Truth

Thanks Corporate NewsBy Butler Shaffer

February 24, 2014

Every political system is firmly grounded in lies, deceit, fraud, distortions, corruption, and other falsehoods and acts of dishonesty. Accordingly, it is the nature of such agencies to propagandize lies as truth, and to control the revelation of demonstrable truths by classifying otherwise embarrassing documents as “secret;” as well as using censorship and the threat of trials for treason. Like insects that prefer to live in the protective darkness beneath rocks, sunlight is most disruptive.

The American nation-state is firmly entrenched in this interconnected war against truth and insistence upon propagandized perversions of reality. Through mechanisms beyond the imagination of George Orwell, the NSA is now able to gather the most micro-detailed information about each of us. In order to maintain and extend its control over us, the state presumes itself entitled to know everything it wants to know about each person. At the same time, we are allowed to know only that which serves the state’s interests to have us know, employing its media sycophants to impart the party line.

BBC Propaganda: “Why I Want A Microchip Implant”

RFID-Microchip-Implant-450x262February 12, 2014

By Michael Snyder for Activist Post

Would you like to have an RFID microchip implanted under your skin? If you are anything like me, you would never allow such a thing to be done. But many others, especially among the younger generations, see things very differently. RFID microchip implants and other forms of “wearable technology” are increasingly being viewed as “cool”, “trendy” and “cutting edge” by young people that wish to “enhance” themselves. And of course the mainstream media is all in favor of these “technological advancements”.

For example, the BBC just published a piece entitled “Why I Want A Microchip Implant”. We are told that such implants could solve a whole host of societal problems. Identity theft and credit card fraud would be nearly eliminated, many other forms of crime would be significantly reduced, children would never go missing and we wouldn’t have to remember a vast array of passwords and PIN numbers like we do now. We are told that if we just adopted such technology that our lives would be so much better. But is that really the case

As our society becomes “digitally integrated”, technologists tell us that it is “inevitable” that wearable technology will become as common as smart phones are today. And the BBC article that I just mentioned is very eager for that day to arrive…

Ultimately, implanted microchips offer a way to make your physical body machine-readable. Currently, there is no single standard of communicating with the machines that underpin society – from building access panels to ATMs – but an endless diversity of identification systems: magnetic strips, passwords, PIN numbers, security questions, and dongles. All of these are attempts to bridge the divide between your digital and physical identity, and if you forget or lose them, you are suddenly cut off from your bank account, your gym, your ride home, your proof of ID, and more. An implanted chip, by contrast, could act as our universal identity token for navigating the machine-regulated world.

And for some people, that day is already here. In fact, at some technology conferences people actually line up to get chipped…

This month at the Transhuman Visions conference in San Francisco, Graafstra set up an “implantation station” offering attendees the chance to be chipped at $50 a time. Using a large needle designed for microchipping pets, Graafstra injected a glass-coated RFID tag the size of a rice grain into each volunteer. By the end of the day Graafstra had created 15 new cyborgs. How creepy is that?

Government Labels Those Who Grow Their Own Food ‘Extremists’

extremists_grow-food-263x164February 11, 2014

By Christina Sarich

Those who mean to lord over us, such as the Department of Defense, have now called people who grow their own food ‘radical’ and extremists. Sound familiar? It’s just like the US calling other nations terrorists when our government has terrorized more of the ‘free’ world than we could even imagine. It has basically called its own citizens terrorists already with NSA spying.

How in the world has it come to this? Americans are becoming ‘serfs’ to their own government much the same way that the British monarchy forced self-sufficient farmers to divide up their land into mono-cropping plots so that they could tax the heck out of everyone and make them reliant upon the same system of tenet farming which then enslaved the masses.

What’s worse, even the founding fathers are considered ‘extremists’ by the Pentagon, according to a new training manual that labels farmers as such. This bit of information was discovered by the legal watchdog, Judicial Watch, as part of a Freedom of Information Act request, and was included in over 133 documents provided by the Air Force. To teach our military to root out ‘extremism’ in a ‘student guide’, those who would decide to grow some organic cabbage, non-GMO corn, and tomatoes, for example, would be considered a threat to national defense. Even though the document says that this is ‘for training purposes only’ and ‘do not use on the job,’ why on earth would such a reference be made? It is simply preposterous.

The manual goes on to pigeonhole those who would have the gall to grow their own food:

An “extremist” is “a person who advocates the use of force or violence; advocates supremacist causes based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or national origin; or otherwise engages to illegally deprive individuals or groups of their civil rights.”

In addition, it says, “Nowadays, instead of dressing in sheets or publically espousing hate messages, many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.”

I am a writer, but I have no words.

So essentially – as we ‘ve all suspected of late, if we believe in supporting our own rights, if we believe in freedom – sovereignty of food, and lifestyle, then we are enemies of the state and federal government. I’m not sure what country we live in anymore, but it certainly isn’t one in which we allow ‘freedom to ring.’

Mumps Outbreak affecting ONLY vaccinated students

Girl-Vaccine-Doctor-Syringe-Shot-Upset-HospitalFeb. 27, 2014

By Jonathan Benson, staff writer for Natural News

One of New York’s lesser-known institutions of higher learning is making headlines after 13 confirmed cases, and counting, of mumps emerged on two of its campuses, prompting school officials to impetuously ban all unvaccinated students from attending classes. But these same reports clearly indicate that all affected students had already been vaccinated for mumps, proving once again the utter uselessness of vaccines and the imbecilic tendencies of organizations chained to the vaccine status quo.

According to reports, concerns first arose after several Fordham University students suddenly came down with flu-like symptoms in recent weeks, which later turned out to be adult mumps in every case. The infection numbers continued to swell, prompting an inquiry into the vaccination records of the affected students. But this inquiry revealed that not a single unvaccinated student had contracted the mumps — only those who had previously been vaccinated for mumps developed the disease.

Nevertheless, Fordham officials have decided to prohibit all unvaccinated students, none of whom have contracted the disease thus far, from attending classes unless or until they agree to provide proof of vaccination. At the same time, all the vaccinated students who contracted mumps are being allowed to continue attending classes after exceeding the supposed contagious stage, a completely irrational policy move that only unfettered adherence to mainstream vaccine dogma.

“All of the students who were tentatively diagnosed with mumps had been vaccinated,” ABC News reported. “Vaccinations do not offer 100 percent protection.”

Vaccines don’t work, admits Fordham, but you must have them to attend classes

While both school and public health officials admit that the vaccine does not work for everyone, Fordham is still insistent that everyone receive it regardless. In a show of tyrannical ignorance, Fordham officials recently issued a public demand that all students be vaccinated for mumps, and those who have already been vaccinated receive booster shots.

Nothing about this type of scenario is at all reasonable from a logical perspective, as any rational-thinking person who has not been brainwashed into the vaccine religion will clearly see that vaccines do not work and actually reduce immunity. And yet in our demented society this type of decision-making is considered par for the course and a reasonable response to handling infectious disease outbreaks among the vaccinated.

White House attempts to unleash Ministry of Truth to control all news sources in America

liberty-silencedFeb. 25, 2014

By Julie Wilson

If you weren’t already outraged by the illegal and unethically intertwined relationships between government and the mainstream media, then this revelation is sure send you over the edge.

Aside from the fact that the Obama administration has waged an unprecedented war on journalists, prosecuting more whistle-blowers while in office than any other president in history, now he’s announced that his administration will send government contractors into newsrooms across the nation to supervise the content they’re creating and producing through a series of involuntary surveys.

The project, known as the “CIN Study,” pronounced “sin,” involves government officials monitoring content created by the media, including articles, television reports and internet content.

Under the newly proposed Federal Communications Commission (FCC) initiative, journalists must provide to the public content that meets one of eight groups of “critical needs,” or face unknown penalties.

Much like the term is used in relation to Fusion Centers, where data is collected, synthesized and sold to law enforcement and any sector of business falling under the broad category of “critical infrastructure,” the government wants to ensure that the public’s “critical needs” are met.

Scholars at the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Communication and Democracy conducted a study to determine what “critical needs” are necessary for Americans.

These eight “critical needs” are defined by the government as correct or adequate information regarding “emergencies and risks,” “health and welfare,” “education,” “transportation,” “economic opportunities,” “the environment,” “civic information” and, lastly, “political information.” All approved by the government.

FCC refers to the CIN study as a “fact-finding mission,” reported The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

If and when the FCC’s initiative, proposed last May, moves forward, it’s unclear what will happen to media organizations that fail to adhere to the government’s proposed standards.

It’s important to note, the FCC grants broadcasters their license to operate, which must be renewed every eight years. It seems probable that the FCC could use this law to penalize media companies they dislike, potentially forcing them out of business.

One question that reporters will be asked is “Have you ever suggested coverage of what you consider a story with critical information for your customers that was rejected by management?” Officials will also investigate how “editorial discretion” is performed and will inquire about the philosophy behind making decisions.

The results of such inquiries will be filed into a report and submitted to Congress every three years on “eliminating barriers to entry for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the communications industry.”

WSJ columnist and one of the FCC’s five commissioners, Ajit Pai, questions how “news judgments made by editors and station managers” can prohibit “small businesses from entering the broadcast industry?”

The FCC’s initiative also includes regulating newspapers, which according to the law do not need licenses or airwaves to operate. This fact should prohibit the FCC from implementing said restrictions simply because they hold absolutely no jurisdiction.

Over 65 years ago, Democrats sponsored the “Fairness Doctrine,” a proposal intended to curb mainstream media networks from misusing their broadcasting license by distributing a “biased public agenda.” Lawmakers justified the imposed law, claiming it should force media to “provide balanced and fair coverage of controversial issues,” reported About.com.

The doctrine remained in effect until 1987 when FCC chairman Mark Fowler began to repeal it during President Reagan’s second term.

Democrats who have helped bring similar legislation back under the “CIN project” hope to use the legislation to eliminate conservative radio talk show hosts like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.

In previous years, both the Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations prevented the Fairness Doctrine from returning; however, the FCC’s latest initiative was passed without a vote.

FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn (directly appointed by Obama), daughter of prestigious House Democratic Rep. James Clyburn, defended the initiative, stating that the FCC “must emphatically insist that we leave no American behind when it comes to meeting the needs of those in varied and vibrant communities of our nation — be they native born, immigrant, disabled, non-English speaking, low-income, or other.”

The FCC’s initiative was meant to begin as a pilot program in South Carolina; however, following FCC commissioner Pai’s article criticizing the program, it was reportedly significantly amended.

According to the FCC, all media owners and journalists have been removed from participating in the survey.

Mercury is good for children and other insanely stupid health lies still pushed by the nutritionally illiterate media

mercury broken thermometerFeb. 25, 2014

By Mike Adams, Editor of NaturalNews.com

If you want to get truly terrible advice on health, foods and nutrition, just tune into the mainstream media. Across all the three-letter networks, high-circulation newspapers and establishment websites, you’ll discover a bizarre cesspool of truly dangerous, outdated and pharma-influenced health advice that’s more likely to get you killed than keep you informed.

In this article, I examine the five biggest insanely stupid health lies still being pushed by the mainstream media, almost as if these organizations think the world is flat or that mercury vapors can chase away evil spirits that cause disease.

Insanely stupid health lie #1: Mercury in lobster is bad for you, but mercury in flu shots is good for young children!

Insanely stupid health lie #2: There’s no such thing as a food that helps prevent cancer

Insanely stupid health lie #3: Fluoride improves public health

Insanely stupid health lie #4: Nutrition is a waste of money

Insanely stupid health lie #5: Disease outbreaks are caused by a lack of vaccinations

Harvard research links Fluoridated Water to ADHD mental disorders

Tap-Water-GlassFeb. 25, 2014

By Ethan A. Huff, staff writer for Natural News

A leading cause of ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder) and autism in children could be the hidden chemicals lurking in the foods we eat, the water we drink and the products we consume, says a new study recently published in The Lancet. Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) found that, among other things, the fluoride chemicals added to many public water systems in North America directly contribute to both mental and behavioral disorders in children.

Building upon earlier research published in 2006 that dubbed fluoride as a “developmental neurotoxicant,” the new review included a meta-analysis of 27 additional studies on fluoride, most of which were from China, that linked the chemical to lowered IQ in children. After thorough analysis, it was determined that fluoride obstructs proper brain development and can lead to autism spectrum disorders, dyslexia, ADHD and other health conditions, a “silent epidemic” that many mainstream health authorities continue to ignore.

According to the two main researchers involved in the study, Philippe Grandjean from HSPH and Philip Landrigan from ISMMS, incidences of chemical-related neurodevelopmental disorders have doubled over the past seven years from six to 12. The reason for this is that an increasing number of mostly untested chemicals are being approved for use without the public being told where and in what quantities such chemicals are being used.

“[S]ince 2006, the number of chemicals known to damage the human brain more generally, but that are not regulated to protect children’s health, had increased from 202 to 214,” writes Julia Medew for The Sydney Morning Herald. “The pair said this could be the tip of the iceberg because the vast majority of the more than 80,000 industrial chemicals widely used in the United States have never been tested for their toxic effects on the developing foetus or child.”

While pesticides dominated the duo’s list as the most pervasive and damaging chemicals whose presence the public is largely unaware of, fluoride, which is intentionally added to public water supplies as a supposed protectant against tooth decay, is also highly problematic. It is also largely ignored by public health authorities as a possible factor in childhood development problems, even though the science is clear about its dangers.

Like lead, certain industrial solvents and crop chemicals, fluoride is known to accumulate in the human bloodstream, where it eventually deposits into bones and other bodily tissues. In pregnant women, this also includes passing through the bloodstream into the placenta, where it then accumulates in the bones and brain tissue of developing babies. The effects of this are, of course, perpetually damaging, and something that regulatory authorities need to take more seriously.

“The problem is international in scope, and the solution must therefore also be international,” stated Grandjean in a press release, calling for improved regulatory standards for common chemicals. “We have the methods in place to test industrial chemicals for harmful effects on children’s brain development — now is the time to make that testing mandatory.”

Serious Health Risks associated with Cell Phone use

cell-phone-brain-tumorFeb. 26, 2014

By Jonathan Benson, staff writer for Natural News

That slick new smartphone you’ve been eyeing could end up damaging your brain or even giving you cancer later in life. This is according to data compiled for a powerful infographic on mobile phone use, which pins electromagnetic radiation emitted from mobile devices to nervous system damage, hemoglobin loss in blood cells, endocrine damage, digestive problems, elevated cholesterol levels, asthma, memory loss and mental confusion, headaches and fatigue, and cancerous tumors, among other conditions.

Compiled by MobilePhone.co.in, the infographic explains how a shocking 5 billion people globally now use cell phones, which includes 303 million people living in the United States. Of this 5 billion, most keep their phones with them all throughout the day either in a pocket or purse, and nearly 70 percent keep their phones next to their heads on a nightstand while they sleep. What this means is that the vast majority of humanity is now being exposed to a constant stream of health-damaging electromagnetic radiation.

Such health effects include the aforementioned conditions, and especially cancer and cancer-related conditions. The overall number of gliomas, for instance, or tumors of the brain or spine, has spiked dramatically since the advent of mobile phones. According to the data, some 10,000 new glioma cases are diagnosed every year just in the U.S., and heavy mobile phone users have been found to be 40 percent more likely than others to develop them.

“Based on mixed epidemiological evidence on humans regarding an association between exposure to RF radiation from wireless phones and head cancers (glioma and acoustic neuroma), RF fields have been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B),” admits the World Health Organization (WHO) on its website.

Cell phone radiation absorbed directly into brain, potentially causing host of chronic diseases

Other conditions linked to mobile phone use include those aforementioned, as well as reduced immunity, decreased sensory and motor function, organ damage, obstructed sleep patterns, skin rashes, joint pain and muscle spasms. A study out of Israel’s Tel Aviv University (TAU) that was published last summer also found that excessive mobile phone use causes general oxidative stress throughout the body, which in turn can lead to DNA damage and cancer.

“[T]here is considerable oxidative stress on the tissue and glands which are close to the cell phone when in use,” stated the TAU study’s lead author Dr. Yaniv Hamzany about the findings. “The damage caused by oxidative stress is linked to cellular and genetic mutations which cause the development of tumours.”

This is particularly alarming for conditions related to the brain and nervous system, as these are the areas most exposed to mobile phone radiation. Not surprisingly, at least 50 percent of cell phone radiation is absorbed directly by the head and body during use, as cell phone users typically press their devices up against their heads while talking.

Even worse is the fact that children with developing brains are most prone to damage by cell phone radiation, as their brains tend to absorb more of it on average than the brains of adults. The types of phones and the technologies that they use are also important factors, as smartphones using so-called “4G” or “LTE” network service are believed to be among the most damaging.

10 Years of Failure – New film documents struggle of farmers deceived by biotech industry

Man-Sad-Dead-CropsFeb. 26, 2014

By Jonathan Benson, staff writer for Natural News

It has been 10 years since the Philippine government approved the country’s first genetically modified (GM) crops for commercial cultivation, and its farmers are now far worse off becauseo f it. In the new documentary film 10 Years of Failure, Farmers Deceived by GM Corn, the farmer advocacy group Farmer-Scientist Partnership for Development, or MASIPAG, reveals the plight of GM corn farmers in the Philippines who were hoodwinked by the biotechnology industry and are now suffering from massive debt, poor yields and even starvation as a result.

The 25-minute film, which is available for free viewing on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCuWs8K9-kI), was released on so-called “World Food Day,” the day that Monsanto and Syngenta were given awards by the World Food Prize Foundation for their abominable transgenic creations. It tells a much different side of the GMO story, one you will probably never hear from the mainstream media or the bought-and-paid-for politicians that go around claiming that genetically engineered foods are the saviors of humanity.

On the contrary, GM crops, and particularly GM corn in the Philippines, has all but destroyed the traditional maize industry in this southeast Asian country. Rather than boost yields, reduce inputs and create crop stabilization as claimed, GM corn in the Philippines has completely ravaged what used to be an industry owned and managed by individual farmers rather than powerful multinational corporations. And the farmers who now realize that they were lied to are having a difficult time escaping the clutches of Big Biotech.

“In the film, GM corn farmers relate how they became indebted because of the rising cost of GM corn seeds and increasing cost and quantity of inputs being used,” reads a press release about the film. “The film also share[s] the farmers[‘] account on the effect of GM corn farming such as emergence of new pests, soil erosion, corn contamination and human and animal health impacts… [and] the difficulty to go back to traditional or organic corn farming because of the loss of traditional seeds and practices replaced by GM corn farming and the effects of neighboring GM corn plantations.”

GM corn has turned Philippine farmers into biotech industry slaves

According to the latest available data, there are currently eight approved varieties of single, stacked-trait and pyramided GM corn being grown in the Philippines on some 685,317 hectares of agricultural land. But rather than create prosperity and food independence, this takeover by the chemical industry has essentially enslaved a nation that previously took care of its own food needs without having to rely on profit-driven corporations for seeds and inputs.

“It is quite tragic that on World Food Day, huge agrochemical companies who wrested away farmers’ rights on seeds, caused environmental degradation and pollution of our valuable genetic resources are put in high regard, while small and resource-poor farmers who nurtured the seeds and who feed the population are left landless and hungry,” says Dr. Chito Medina, MASIPAG’s national coordinator, about the travesty.

You won’t want to miss this powerful film, which dutifully deconstructs the myth that GMOs are necessary for human sustenance. By exposing this common GMO lie, MASIPAG hopes to redirect the conversation and convince policymakers to take a different route that is truly sustainable: decentralized, biodiversity-based agriculture controlled by the people and for the people.

“Please watch this video and reconsider being straight forward with everyone you know about the health dangers [of] GMOs/Glyphosate,” reads a review of the film by MomsAcrossAmerica.com. “If we don’t buy it, they can’t sell it, and the farmers won’t grow it. Once you watch this video you will see how we will be helping the farmers by facilitating this change.”

Rise of the Machines – Google robots, AI and why self-aware machines will inevitably seek to destroy humanity

Cyborg-Hold-EarthFeb. 26, 2014

by Mike Adams, Editor of NaturalNews.com

Earlier this week, AI expert Ray Kurzweil predicted that robots would “outsmart humans” by 2029. It’s probably going to be much sooner, given that humans are currently suffering a rapid cognitive decline due to widespread water fluoridation (which even Harvard experts say causes lowered IQs), heavy metals contamination of the food supply, and of course the IQ-cannibalizing broadcasts of MSNBC and CNN.

As much as Kurzweil seems somewhat loony for his ideas about “merging with the machines” and uploading your mind into a supercomputer, he’s not someone who can be readily dismissed, even by his skeptics. He’s obviously a very intelligent individual, and he’s been right about a great many things in the history of technological achievement. When Kurzweil publicly predicts robots will out-think humans by 2029, we’d better take note.

“By 2029, computers will be able to do all the things that humans do. Only better,” reports The Guardian in an interview with Kurzweil.

Google is rapidly acquiring advanced military robotics and breakthrough artificial intelligence technologies. Kurzweil is a top executive at Google, the very same company which has been on a robotics buying spree, purchasing top military-level robotics companies for billions of dollars.

Recently, for example, Google purchased Boston Dynamics, the company whose creepy, Terminator-style robots already have “human stalking” algorithms which are politely described as “follow the leader” games.

But what will power the brains of these weapon-yielding military robots? Google also just spent hundreds of millions of dollars to purchase the DeepMind company, DNNresearch and a long list of others. What’s clear is that Google is piecing together the technology needed to deploy a literal army of highly intelligent, armed, “self aware” and self-mobile machines. Their uses are, of course, incredibly diverse. They could be servant robots for homeowners or they could be Terminator-style battlefield soldiers. There’s no limit to their application, and whatever company owns this technology will, without question, dominate our world.

If Kurzweil is right, the beginning of this is barely 15 years away, and it begs the question: What would a new race of intelligent machines choose to do with humanity?

Geoengineering Could Cause Real Global Warming

Earth-Atmosphere-Glow-Space-United-StatesFeb. 27, 2014

Climate-change researchers at the University of Washington (UW), in considering a range of mitigation scenarios, say that the injection of sulfate particles into the earth’s atmosphere to reflect sunlight away from the planet’s surface to curb warming might pose a further threat if it is not maintained indefinitely and additionally supported with strict restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions.

The results of the study, published Feb. 18 in IOP Publishing’s journal Environmental Research Letters, “has highlighted the risks of large and spatially expansive temperature increases if solar radiation management (SRM) is abruptly stopped once it has been implemented,” said a press release from the university.

The scientists said SRM is one proposed method of geoengineering that is being floated as a potential technique to control warming. It involves injecting tiny sulfate-based aerosols into the upper atmosphere to reflect sunlight and cool the planet — theoretically, anyway.

“The technique has been shown to be economically and technically feasible; however, its efficacy depends on its continued maintenance, without interruption from technical faults, global cooperation breakdown or funding running dry,” said the press release.

Family Farms Under Attack

Protest-Riot-Rally-NYCPoles to stage massive protest at embassy in defense of traditional farming

The industrial model of corporate agriculture that is now a mainstay of modern American food production — and a major cause of environmental pollution and widespread illness — is spreading like a deadly virus into eastern Europe, where new draconian regulatory standards in the country of Poland threaten to eliminate the heritage of farming practices that have sustained the country’s millions of small-scale family farmers, and their loyal customers, for centuries.

According to The Ecologist, the Polish government is right now trying to enforce oppressive new sanitary standards for food production that make it near-impossible for local food producers to grow and sell their goods in local shops and restaurants, which they have done for many years without issue. Countless small- and medium-scale Polish farmers are effectively being barred from the food market entirely due to these regulations, as only the largest food producers in Poland will be financially able to comply with the new rules.

Twelve European ministers have sent the health commissioner of the European Union a letter asking that the European Commission withdraw its proposal to approve a new strain of genetically modified (GM) maize known as “Pioneer 1507.”

The GM corn strain, co-developed by DuPont Pioneer (formerly Pioneer Hi-Bred) and Dow Chemical, produces a pesticide in its tissues originally derived from the bacteria species Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). It is also resistant to the herbicide glufosinate ammonium.

If approved, Pioneer 1507 would be only the third GM crop ever approved for commercial cultivation in the European Union. Another variety of GM maize and a GM potato were formerly approved, although a court later blocked all cultivation of the potato strain. Opposition to GM crops is widespread throughout Europe, due to both health concerns and concerns over the crops’ effects on the environment. Critics allege that GM crops encourage increased use of toxic herbicides, and that Bt varieties cause deaths of moths and butterflies, including threatened species.
