“Studies have shown that in many cases the virulence of a virus is actually based on its ability to trigger immune overreaction.” — Russell Blaylock, MD
Poliovirus is a relatively harmless virus. Most people would be surprised at that statement. But it’s true. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 95 percent of the people who are infected with polio display no symptoms. About four to eight percent of those infected display “minor symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, nausea, headache, flu-like symptoms, stiffness in the neck and back, and pain in the limbs, which often resolve completely.”1

Of he many excellences which I perceive in the order of our State, there is none which upon reflection pleases me better than the rule about poetry.

To what do you refer?
To the rejection of imitative poetry, which certainly ought not to be received; as I see far more clearly now that the parts of the soul have been distinguished.

(Natural News) A fascinating new study published in Precision Oncology has found that a combination of three plant-based nutrients “melts away” prostate cancer cells. The study, led by University of Texas researcher Stefano Tiziani, is entitled Combinatorial treatment with natural compounds in prostate cancer inhibits prostate tumor growth and leads to key modulations of cancer cell metabolism.
As described in the University of Texas newsletter, this breakthrough discovery allows people to “starve prostate cancer with what you eat for dinner.”

Burning Fat for Fuel Increases Quality and Quantity of Life by Dr. Mercola

Burning Fat for Fuel Increases Quality and Quantity of Life

Story at-a-glance

  • More than half of all Americans struggle with chronic illness, and 1 in 5 deaths in the U.S. is obesity-related. This is a direct result of eating far too much sugar and grains, too much protein and far too little healthy fat
  • To optimize your mitochondrial function through diet, you need to eat so that your body is able to burn fat as its primary fuel rather than sugars. Ketogenic diets are very effective for this, as is fasting
  • When your body is able to burn fat for fuel, your liver creates ketones that burn more efficiently than carbs, thus creating far less reactive oxygen species and secondary free radicals that can damage your cellular and mitochondrial cell membranes, proteins and DNA

The Status of the Global Oligarchy By Francesca de Bardin Global Research


The Status of the Global Oligarchy
Global Research, June 29, 2017




The term oligarchy is derived from the Greek words meaning “rule or command by a few.” The term is generally used in the derogatory sense to describe a tyrannical system that practices oppression to ensure obedience. While oligarchies are generally associated with antiquity and as being localized, many of today’s larger democracies can justifiably be called oligarchies. The following is a brief discourse on how modern oligarchs manage control over societies, using power exercised through economic and political means. Today the global oligarchy is controlled by a few hundred families.
Many modern democracies are systems where the actual differences between political rivals are very small, and in these systems the oligarchic elite impose strict limits on what constitutes an acceptable and respectable political position. As for the “politicians”, their careers depend heavily on unelected economic, political, and media elites. Therefore, we have the popular saying, “There is only one political party.” An oligarchy, as we know, is a governing structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people could be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, or military control, and so on. In these governing structures control is maintained by a few prominent families who typically pass their influence from one generation to the next. But, inherited power is not the only means of transference.

Where were the Sandy Hook children in the Newtown schools? Anonymous Student with Jim Fetzer

Where were the Sandy Hook children in the Newtown schools?


Anonymous Student with Jim Fetzer

One of the key claims for those who believe Sandy Hook “massacre” to be a false flag is that the school was closed in 2008, as Dr. Eowyn and others contend in Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015). This claim is mainly based on evidence of no Internet activity since 2008, obvious disrepair of the school, serious environmental problems such as asbestos contamination, no updating of parking signs to reflect then-current disability laws, eyewitness testimony that pointed to the school’s closure, and  the inability/unwillingness of Newtown School officials to provide documents of maintenance activity at the school after 2008. 
For abundant proof of the deplorable condition of Sandy Hook Elementary School, go to "SANDY HOOK: Wolfgang Halbig goes for the jugular in FOIA hearings" (8 May 2015), which includes the following interview in which Wolfgang reviews the deplorable condition of the school building:

Washington Has Been At War For 16 Years: Why? Paul Craig Roberts

Washington Has Been At War For 16 Years: Why?

Washington Has Been At War For 16 Years: Why?
Paul Craig Roberts
For sixteen years the US has been at war in the Middle East and North Africa, running up trillions of dollars in expenses, committing untold war crimes, and sending millions of war refugees to burden Europe, while simultaneously claiming that Washington cannot afford its Social Security and Medicare obligations or to fund a national health service like every civilized country has.
Considering the enormous social needs that cannot be met because of the massive cost of these orchestrated wars, one would think that the American people would be asking questions about the purpose of these wars. What is being achieved at such enormous costs? Domestic needs are neglected so that the military/security complex can grow fat on war profits.

Texas Boys State Votes to Secede

Gary North - June 28, 2017
Printer-Friendly Format
Boys State is an annual one-week summer assembly of high school seniors held in every state in the union except Hawaii. It is sponsored by the American Legion.
The boys for one week organize themselves into rival political parties. Then they conduct mock civil government.
I attended in 1958 in California. It had a profound effect on me. I gained my self-confidence that week. I was elected to state office.
In my day, the two parties were Tories and Whigs. The head of the Whig party was Stacy Keach. The head of the Tory party was Dwight Chapin. Chapin later served as Pres. Nixon's appointments secretary, and he went to jail as part of the dirty tricks campaign. I almost was hired by Chapin. It just didn't quite work out. I think that was for the best.

Sharon and the other Israeli leaders aspire to fulfil what the goals of the political Zionist movement have been since its origin a century ago: to turn all of historic Palestine into an exclusively Jewish state. A central tenet of the Zionist ideology is expressed in the racist slogan, "A land without people for a people without a land." (38) The implication of Palestinians in the 9/11 attacks would have handed Zionists a golden opportunity to achieve the above because all Palestinians would have been labelled terrorists.

Syrian Children Get Polio from Oral Polio Vaccine

Syrian children
Syrian authorities conducted polio vaccination campaigns in Deir-Ez-Zor in March and April 2017 using “bivalent oral polio vaccine.”
Three children in the Deir-Ez-Zor eastern region of Syria have contracted polio during the past three months. The World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed on June 8, 2017 that a polio virus strain designated as vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2) was found in a healthy Syrian child and two other children diagnosed with Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP)—an acute form of paralysis. The children with AFP experienced the onset of paralysis on March 5 and May 6.1 2

Chapter 9


CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN OF DENIAL, SMEAR AND FALSIFICATION

Rumours of the forcible conversions of the Ustashi massacres began to leak out of the Independent Catholic State of Croatia from its earliest stage. At first they received hardly any credence. That people should be killed for their religion could not be accepted in the middle of the 20th Century.
Yet the tales of individual witnesses, when added to the stories of Italian Fascist troops and even Nazi ones, could not be ignored forever. In view also of the fact that many described the Croatian horrors in their letters home, some having even taken "snaps" of the deeds.
When, finally, these could no longer be denied, counterrumors began to circulate to the effect that they were anti-Catholic propaganda, anti-Croat lies. Indeed, even "Gestapo-cooked" inventions. The Croats and their Catholic supporters accused the Nazis, the Communists, the Serbs, and even the Allies, in turn, of having started the atrocity stories.
Since evidence, however, went on accumulating, they were finally compelled to adopt

Indians because they weren't Christian.


The Second Big Lie


Later, the Colonists tried to buy the land from the Indians who told them that they didn't own
the land – the land owned the people. The Colonists ignored this and forced the Indians to
accept “gifts” as payment and concocted contracts of sale based on this practice.

Most Americans have no idea that depleted uranium munitions used by the U.S. military are causing one of the greatest environmental nightmares in the history of the world. In fact, most Americans have no idea what depleted uranium even is. But even as many Americans gobble down their burgers and french fries and pizza and enjoy the "good life" watching their big screen televisions, an entirely different story is being written on the other side of the world. In Iraq and Afghanistan today, there are some areas that have been so polluted by depleted uranium that they have literally become uninhabitable hellholes. Americans like to think of themselves as so "environmentally conscious", but the truth is that one of the greatest environmental tragedies of all time is being caused by the U.S. military and yet nobody seems to care.

  • Treating fever with Tylenol (acetaminophen) is counterproductive for many reasons, not least of which is the drug’s toxic effects on the liver.
  • Fever is one of the body’s oldest and most reliable tools for fighting disease or infection, creating an inhospitable environment for pathogens and activating the immune system.
  • Reducing a fever with acetaminophen has a number of negative effects, including reduction of glutathione levels important to numerous cellular functions.

When George Orwell published his famous novel “1984” in 1949, he wouldn’t have imagined how his fiction will be turned into a reality in the country of his birth only three decades later.
Orwell was born on June 25, 1903 in British India in the state of Bihar. His father was a civil servant posted with the Opium Department.
“1984” is about an imaginary totalitarian regime where any voice of dissent could be stifled and the society is expected to be homogeneous with no alternative thoughts ever allowed to exist.

A report yesterday by the Pulitzer-prize winning reporter who broke some of the biggest stories of the Vietnam and Iraq wars showed that Trump bombed Syria on April 4th based upon false pretenses.
Specifically, Trump said the Syrian government carried out a chemical weapons attack on civilians. But U.S. military and intelligence officials say that they told Trump there was no evidence for that claim … and they say that what really happened is that Syria bombed Islamic terrorists, and that accidentally released chemicals being stored by the terrorists.
So how does Trump respond to the report?

Iraq War Records Reignite Debate Over US Use of Depleted Uranium By Samuel Oakford Global Research,


Iraq War Records Reignite Debate Over US Use of Depleted Uranium
Global Research, October 13, 2016
















Records detailing as many as 181,000 rounds of depleted uranium munitions shot in 2003 by American forces in Iraq have been unearthed by researchers, representing the most significant public documentation of the controversial armament’s use during the US-led invasion.
The cache, released to George Washington University in 2013 but until now not made public, shows that a majority of the 1,116 sorties carried out by A-10 jet crews during March and April of 2003 were aimed at so-called “soft targets” like cars and trucks, as well as buildings and troop positions. This runs parallel to accounts that the munitions were used on a wide array of targets and not just against the tanks and armoured vehicles that the Pentagon maintains super-penetrative DU munitions are intended for.

luvbugSo in my other life (non-autism life) I work in the world of oil spills. I don’t get to do anything glamorous like scrub oil off of swans, or pull up alongside oil tankers in my speed boat shouting through a bullhorn. I’m in the back office counting the beans, paying the bills and filing forms with the government. Stop yawning – somebody’s got to do it! But during the daily grind this month, my partner (and hubby) pointed out this opinion piece about “How to Prevent Oil Spills” by Joe Nocera. The basic premise of the New York Times article is that in order to make the Big Oil CEOs care about, and curb, the damage their companies cause you’ve got to send them to jail. Because if you’ve got enough money, fines don’t faze you one bit. Case in point, BP recently
