"Modern psychiatry has become a hotbed of corruption, particularly the kind that seeks to demonize and declare mentally ill anyone who deviates from what is regarded as the norm. This is abundantly evident in the latest installment of the industry’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, which dubs people who do not conform to what those in charge declare to be normal as mentally insane. The so-called “condition” for why a person might choose to resist conformity has been labeled by the psychiatric profession as “oppositional defiant disorder,” or ODD. The new DSM defines this made-up disease as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” and also lumps it in alongside attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, another made-up condition whose creator, Dr. Leon Eisenberg, admitted it to be phony on his death bed."
"Petco on Monday said it has pulled all Chinese-made dog and cat treats from its shelves after fears they sickened and killed thousands of pets. The company said all of its treats are now made in the U.S., New Zealand, Australia, or South America. The Food and Drug Administration is investigating reports Chinese-made jerky treats sold at Petco and other stores have sickened more than 5,600 dogs, 24 cats, and three people. About 1,000 of the dogs died. The investigation is still ongoing and the agency has not yet determined if all of the cases are connected to the tainted treats. “We believe this is the right thing to do,” Petco CEO Jim Myers said of removing Chinese-made treats from its stores."
"The gun-control movement has a new catchphrase and a new strategy to get more laws restricting the right to bear arms passed. Instead of lobbying Congress or state legislators, gun controllers plan to use ballot initiatives to make gun-control measures part of state constitutions. The gun-control movement was emboldened by the passage in November of Washington state’s Initiative 594 (I-594), which mandates background checks for all gun sales, The New York Times reported. It received nearly 60 percent of the vote and took effect on Dec. 4. The National Rifle Association opposed the initiative, saying it was poorly written and would require background checks for simply handing a gun to a friend. A coalition of anti-gun groups and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg are now working to replicate that success in other states."
"While various CNBC anchors may be willing to say that the US is “growing gangbusters” yet again confusing the liquidity-oozing equity markets with the economy, there are a couple hundred million Americans who would bet to differ (which incidentally may also explain why the Comcast channel no longer wishes to have its viewership calculated by Nielsen): the reason is that according to the latest Bankrate survey released today, more than three in five Americans don’t have money in their savings accounts to cover any unexpected bills such as a $500 car repair or a $1,000 emergency room visit. In fact, only 38% of respondents said they have enough funds in their bank accounts to cover even the most mundane of spending emergencies. Most others would need to take on debt or cut back elsewhere."
"Peripheral neuropathy, which is characterized by sharp pain or numbing and tingling, affects people of all ages. But the cure isn’t some outlandish and expensive pharmaceutical medicine – it’s a vitamin found easily in fish or supplements. Patients suffering from a loss of muscular control, painful tingling, numbness and loss of sensation in their limbs don’t have to undergo invasive surgeries or take debilitating meds – they may be able to simply take high doses of Vitamin B12. This vitamin benefits many other diseases as well. Our bodies need 13 different B vitamins, and B12 can be especially lacking. Most of us are already familiar with B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6, and folic acid. But the B complex also includes vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), B12, biotin, PABA, choline, and inositol. These water-soluble vitamins are indispensable for good health. What’s more, the high sugar diet that many Americans partake of also destroys Vitamin B12 in the intestinal tract."
"At a recent town hall in Portland, Oregon, a panel of environmentalists and state legislators fluffed around about new environmental policies and legislation. One panelist, Quinn Read, of Oregon Wild, brought up the idea of 3 new things to tax; hiking boots, binoculars, and birdseed. Yes, birdseed. Again, these people literally want to tax birdseed, to fund more wildlife preservation projects."
"Where is it cold? Where is it hot? The GISS “departure from normal temperature” map below should paint a strikingly clear picture to answer this question. Where is the ONLY bright blue area of substantially below normal temperatures? The Eastern half of the North American continent, why? This is not just an anomaly, it has become the norm. The power structure’s goal is to continue confusing and dividing the US population in regard to the true state of the climate. If Americans woke up to what is unfolding in the world, and to what is being done to them by the climate engineers, there would be a shock wave around the globe. The dominoes of the power structure would begin to tumble. So, what was the temperature “departure from normal” exactly a year earlier, in November of 2013? The map below is almost a duplicate of the one above, the focused cool-downs of the Eastern US has been ongoing."
"A public records battle is brewing in Massachusetts between the state’s ACLU regional chapter and a coalition of law enforcement agencies who have formed a private corporation and are now claiming they are exempt from public records laws. The North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, or “NEMLEC,” is a 501(c)(3) corporation formed by 58 city police and sheriff’s departments in Middlesex and Essex County, Massachusetts. Each of the member departments has committed to devote 10 percent of its resources to NEMLEC when needed, pays annual dues, and in return can call in NEMLEC’s resources when requested. "NEMLEC counts 59 municipal police and sheriff agencies among its members."
"This kid was no killer — but some callous Bronx cops sure treated him like one. Instead of earning himself a simple trip to the principal’s office, a terrified 7-year-old boy was hauled out of class, handcuffed like a hardened criminal and “interrogated” by police for a grueling 10 hours — all over a playground dispute involving $5, his family is charging. “My son was crying, ‘Mommy, it wasn’t me! Mommy, it wasn’t me!’ I never imagined the cops could do that to a child. We’re traumatized,” Wilson Reyes’ distraught mom, Frances Mendez told The Post last night. “Imagine how I felt seeing my son in handcuffs!’’ she said. “It was horrible. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.” The bizarre overreaction by cops came after the child had been accused of swiping $5 from another student after school. The money, which was supposed to be used for a school trip that never happened, had fallen on the ground in front of Wilson and two other boys, and one of them scooped it up."
"It happens more often than you can imagine, but more Doctors are finally getting caught in the act of misrepresenting their oath and fraudulently diagnosing healthy patients with cancer to turn a quick buck from kickbacks on chemotherapy poisons. Why shouldn’t Doctors lie when the entire cancer industry is one gigantic fabrication from start to finish? Is it any wonder that cancer societies worldwide put a far greater financial initiative on chemotherapy and radiation research than disease prevention techniques? Preventing disease doesn’t make money, but treating disease certainly does. Take Dr. Farid Fata, a prominent cancer doctor in Michigan who admitted in court one year ago to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing healthy people with cancer. Fata also admitted to giving them chemotherapy drugs for the purpose of making a profit. Were his patients shocked? You bet they were. Who would ever suspect a Doctor of faking a diagnosis to collect money. It’s unconscionable. Yet it happens with cancer and almost every disease that medical doctors can generate income through kickbacks and commissions based on the volume of patients treated with specific pharmaceuticals. Like anything people are used as a commodity."
"I was looking over some of my older posts and noticed I haven’t written an article on using a firearm to CCW or for self-defense in quite some time. So I want to take the opportunity to give you information that I believe is important, and doesn’t necessarily fit into its own article. I’ll start off by saying that when it comes to the use of firearms for self-defense, there are some people who are so married to their belief, that they’re almost offended when presented with opposing information. If you have a belief that I say something against, please let me know why you think I am wrong. Some of what I will say today is my opinion, but much of it is backed up by science."
"Lemons are a powerful healing fruit that contain phenomenal antibiotic, antiseptic, and anti-cancer properties. Lemons are rich in vitamins C and B-complex and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, silicon, copper, and potassium. They are considered to be a wonderful tonic and can help to cleanse and detoxify the entire body. Although lemons have an acidic taste they actually have a very strong alkaline reaction on the body and can help to alkalize blood, cells, lymph, organs, and tissues. Lemons are known to help destroy putrefactive bacteria in the mouth and intestines which can help alleviate flatulence, indigestion, and constipation. Lemons contain a compound called limonene which is used to dissolve gallstones and kidney stones and can help to fight oral, lung, skin, breast, stomach, and colon cancer. Lemons are also rich in bioflavonoids which can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. Lemon juice is known to be particularly beneficial for colds, coughs, sore throats, hiccups, ear infections, fevers, arthritis, heart disease, COPD, atherosclerosis, diabetes, high cholesterol, autoimmune disorders, stroke, and cancer. Topically, lemon juice is a great remedy for wrinkles, warts, toothaches, corns, sunburns, poison ivy, acne, psoriasis, and as a hair rinse and facial astringent. A tall glass of lemon water upon waking is an excellent way to hydrate and cleanse the body first thing in the morning. Fresh lemon in tea and green juice and added to salads, wraps, hummus, guacamole, and nori rolls is another great way to add this healing and nutritious fruit into your diet. Fresh lemons can be found at your local grocery and health food store."
"When I talk about “taking the plunge,” I do not mean in an abstract, sitting-around-the-table-after-dinner, philosophical way. I’m talking about, “let us identify the absolute scariest thing you can think of and then do it.” In real life, like going from one income, to no income! I can imagine a number of scary things, some of them more plausible than others: alien invasion, torture, etc. My very worst, more realistic nightmare would be a major earthquake. The next best (worst?) thing would be my husband getting laid off and our family making do with no income. So it makes sense, doesn’t it, that my husband actually is going to quit his well-paying, benefit-providing, stable job so he can go to school full-time to finish his bachelor’s degree."
"Prepping and developing a Preparedness Plan has everyday applications, besides preparing for a collapse event. Developing a sense of situational awareness is important for Preppers, not just for everyday personal security, but as a fundamental building block in your security plan and the security of your Prepper Group. Because of this importance, we have stressed the importance of situational awareness for Preppers many times in the past. I define situational awareness as the practice of being aware of your surroundings, coupled with the ability to identify potential threats and recognize dangerous situations. Just like prepping is a mindset, a lifestyle, I believe situational awareness is more of a mindset than it is paranoia. However, one could argue that an ounce of paranoia will help you develop a keen sense of situational awareness. Situational awareness is not something that can be practiced only by highly trained government agents or specialized corporate security teams. Indeed, it can be exercised by anyone with the will and the discipline to do so. Situational awareness is not only important for recognizing day-to-day threats, but it also serves to identify other dangerous situations after TEOTWAWKI."
"Last year, 25 people were killed by avalanches in the United States. The number may not sound like much, but that’s 23 more than were killed by sharks last year, and 25 more than have ever been killed by a Yeti. The victims are typically backcountry recreationalists—skiers, snowboarders, climbers, and snowmobilers. Snowmobilers account for twice as many avalanche fatalities as the other groups, mostly because of their surging numbers, and also because the weight of the snowmobile and rider is greater than that of a person on skis, making them more likely to stress the weak layer in a snowpack and set off an avalanche (the noise isn’t the reason, by the way. The idea that noise can cause an avalanche is a myth). Avalanche victims are often risk takers that set aside safety concerns in the pursuit of their goals, and 89% of them are men. While the majority of avalanches happen naturally, 90% of avalanche fatalities occur in avalanches triggered by the victim himself, or by someone in the victim’s party. So avalanches aren’t exactly freak accidents, and there is a lot you can do to avoid getting swept up in one and to increase your chances of survival if you do. Now here in Oklahoma, the avalanche threat hovers right around zero percent. So I called up Sarah Carpenter, an instructor at the American Avalanche Institute in Victor, Idaho to fill me in on how to prepare for, survive, and help a buddy out of an avalanche."
