"Many adverse side effects and even deaths are occurring due to medical negligence. Specifically, this is due to the irresponsibility of scientists who are not reporting the results of their clinical trials to the public, as required by a 2007 law. According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the public access website clinicaltrials.gov draws 57,000 visitors a day, including people who are confronting serious diseases and seeking help to treat them with experimental drugs. The study from Duke University found that five years after the reporting law took effect, only 13% of scientists running clinical trials are divulging their results."
"China is ready to launch its SWIFT alternative in the most significant move in the unfolding process of de-dollarization yet. Forget all the nonsense and hoopla about the Apple Watch or the GM stock buy-back. Far and away the most important economic story of the week is one you won’t find on the front page of Bloomberg or MarketWatch. New reports indicate that China is ready to launch its SWIFT alternative, and for those who have their ear to the ground this is the most significant move yet in the unfolding process of de-dollarization that is seeing the BRICS-led “resistance bloc” breaking away from the financial stranglehold of the US-led “Washington Consensus.”
"On Friday, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar, along with Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ) and Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), sent a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and ICE Deputy Assistant Secretary Saldaña warning them not to release an illegal immigrant with drug-resistant tuberculosis into the general public."
"The Department of Homeland Security is seeking bids from companies able to provide law enforcement officials with access to a national license-plate tracking system — a year after canceling a similar solicitation over privacy issues. The reversal comes after officials said they had determined they could address concerns raised by civil liberties advocates and lawmakers about the prospect of the department’s gaining widespread access, without warrants, to a system that holds billions of records that reveal drivers’ whereabouts."
"In a video uploaded to Facebook on Wednesday, Michael Cates filmed a disturbing interaction between police and retired truck driver, Russel Ayers. The recording shows police threatening Ayers with incarceration after he refused to apologize to an officer, after calling him a “f*cking asshole.” The confrontation took place after the officer’s partner allegedly came close to plowing through a group of bikers on Highway 62 in Thomasville, North Carolina. The cruiser was reportedly going 100 mph in a 60 mph zone, with no siren or lights. “All I want you to do is apologize for what you called my brother, the guy I go into battle with every day,” the officer told Ayers. Ayers refused as he called the officer an idiot once again for his unsafe driving that could have been disastrous for the men on motorcycles. “I’m not justifying that, you’re right. That’s unsafe. I’m not justifying that behavior, what I’m telling you that when you call my brother an idiot we’ve got problems,” the officer continued on to say. “He said a f*cking idiot,” the man’s friend corrects the officer."
"Sometimes I think that the next Revolutionary War will take place in vegetable garden battlefields, all across America. Instead of bullets, there will be seeds. Instead of chemical warfare, there will be rainwater, carefully collected from the gutters of the house. Instead of soldiers in body armor and helmets, there will be backyard guerrillas, with bare feet, cut-off jean shorts, and wide-brimmed hats. Instead of death, there will be life, sustained by a harvest of home-grown produce. Children will be witness to these battles, but instead of being traumatized, they will be happy, grimy, and healthy, as they learn about the miracles that take place in a little plot of land or pot of dirt. Don’t worry if you aren’t trained in this kind of warfare. The Home Grown Food Summit is an absolutely free online workshop for training gardening guerrillas. Every day, Big Agri and Big Biotech take steps towards food totalitarianism. They do so flying a standard of “sustainability” but what they are actually trying to sustain is NOT our natural resources, but their control. Does it sound dramatic to state that if things continue on their current path of “sustainability” that we are all going to die? If you think I’m overstating this, read on. The case is clear that we are going to soon be “sustained” right into starvation via Agenda 21."
"The Wyoming Food Freedom Act (WFFA), which became law on March 3, has set the bar high for efforts at similar legislation elsewhere in the United States of America. Under the WFFA, the production and sale within Wyoming of any food except meat products by a producer direct to the “informed end consumer” is not subject to licensing or inspection. Poultry falls under the WFFA and is not included in the definition of meat products. The only requirement of the WFFA is “the producer shall inform the end consumer that any food product or food sold at a farmers market or through ranch, farm or home based sales pursuant to this section is not certified, labeled, licensed, packaged, regulated or inspected.” As of now, restrictions in the Federal Meat Inspection Act are the reason the WFFA does not include the sale of meat products but the Act’s sponsor, Representative Tyler Lindholm, indicated in an interview with Baylen Linnekin that there will be legislation in the future enabling farmers and ranchers to “sell beef and pork directly to consumers also.”
"Big Biotech/Agri companies like Monsanto and Del Monte are becoming increasingly desperate to sell us on their tainted goods. Now, not only are they averring that genetically modified crops are not harmful, but that they are actually BETTER for you than non-modified foods. A new pineapple is being rolled out by Del Monte. It’s pink and apparently it will keep you from getting cancer. Monsanto is one of the companies hard at work to deceive you. They even have their own propaganda department, as reported by Heather Callaghan of Natural Blaze."

"The April 1 snowpack assessment in California, which set an all-time record for lowest snowpack levels in the state’s history, finally spurred Governor Brown’s office to issue an executive order to residents and non-agricultural businesses to cut water use by 25 percent in the first mandatory statewide reduction in the state’s history. But some groups have been exempted from the water restrictions, specifically big agriculture, which uses about 80 percent of California’s water, and oil companies. Democracy Now! discussed on their show today the new mandates and the implications of exempting some of the biggest water users in the state."

"A breast cancer survivor once told me that she was ordered to stop drinking green tea while undergoing chemotherapy so that the chemo would have a chance "to take." The green tea was fighting off the drug's effects. It turns out, other substances have chemo-thwarting tendencies. Researchers have noticed that certain compounds make chemotherapy drugs less lethal towards the target. Are these substances "protecting the tumor" or strengthening the body to point it pushes away chemotherapy?"
"Every summer, Dean and I spend a measurable amount of time harvesting, cleaning, curing, and braiding the organic garlic we produce in our garden. We use garlic in almost every dish we prepare at home and often utilize its amazing curative powers, as well. I like garlic braids because they are beautiful to look at and compact enough to hang in the kitchen pantry without cluttering things up. But no matter how and in what conditions you store your garlic, there comes a time when the living bulbs begin to sprout and slowly rot. But you can salvage the wonderful flavor and medicinal properties of garlic before it’s too late…"
"The disk from the federal government contains two files. The data covers two days in 2014 that I am reviewing as I cover Chattanooga’s biggest environmental and health story of the past 25 years. On the disk are two files. One is 27,542 lines deep in 13 columns. It tells the story of what happened in the claw-streaked skies over Chattanooga on Oct. 19, 2014, a Sunday."
"For months, the U.S. economy’s strength has been flagging. Manufacturing slowed. Fewer homes were built. Cheaper gas failed to ignite consumer spending. Yet month after month, employers kept on hiring vigorously. In March, the economy’s slump finally overtook the job market. Employers added just 126,000 workers — the fewest since December 2013 — snapping a 12-month streak of gains above 200,000. At the same time, the unemployment rate remained at 5.5 percent. The slowdown reported Friday by the Labor Department posed a puzzle to economists:"
"One of the biggest stories for years in the alternative media was the mysterious and foreboding purchase by Homeland Security of more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. Thanks to coverage on prominent sites like DrudgeReport, the story reached into mainstream media, prompting official spin and downplaying of the purchase. Now, a new Homeland Security purchase order listed on FedBizOpps also raises an eyebrow or two, given the heated and divided political and social climate at hand. Just look at what happened in Ferguson… A request for “less lethal specialty munitions” for use by Homeland Security dated March 23, 2015 reads:"
"The older I get the more I realize that many of us in our attempts to maintain operational secrecy ignore what may turn out to be our most important prep. Most of us stock, food, water, medical kits and all types of preps for TEOTWAWKI. But many of us forget what may be the most important of all, friends and family. The older I get, I am now over 70 the more I find that we need friends and family. This was something that I never really thought about when I was younger. Thankfully, my parents did and always encouraged us to work together. Personally, I am still in fairly good shape, but I have to spend time taking care of my father who is over 90. He is not on any medication that he couldn’t get by without. But his legs and memory aren’t what they used to be. Fortunately, we are a large family and are quite close and help one another. In any real emergency, we will function together with our friends. This is a prep that is really valuable and not everyone is lucky enough to have it."
"In today’s post we’re going to discuss foraging for edible plants. Foraging is a skill that everyone should be “RE-learning” and practicing. That’s right…RE- learning. This basic skill, mastered by the human race over millions of years, is sadly now all but forgotten. There are a lot of skills like that; skills and knowledge that our ancestors mastered and relied on for everyday basic survival that have been pushed aside and forgotten in the name of convenience and “progress”. Hopefully today, you’ll be inspired to learn a little more about foraging, and to start re-learning one of those lost skills."
"Planting seeds or buying a seedling is probably the most optimistic thing I do all year. I have never had a green thumb and more houseplants have died under my care than I want to admit. Advanced gardening skills have not been my forte. However, every year, right about now, when the trees start bursting with fresh green leaves and blossoms are everywhere, I get in the mood to plant something! We’ve enjoyed huge herb gardens and very successful tomato and pepper plants over the years. We’ve also watched our eggplants wither away to nothing and about a dozen cilantro plants fizzle. For sure, my family and I have experienced both the ups and downs of gardening. This month, we’re trying some new things and I want to invite you to join us. Our April Skill of the Month is, Learn a New, Advanced Gardening Skill. Don’t be scared off by the word, “advanced” because what is “advanced” to me could be common knowledge to you, and vice versa! Over the next four weeks, I’ll be posting articles and links to the best websites and videos with a variety of gardening skills. Pick one or two, and then go for it!"
"Many believe that if a politician is a Republican that they support the constitution and our right to keep and bear arms. But Tennessee’s Republican Governor proves that is not always true. Last year the NRA downgraded Gov. Bill Haslam to a “C”. It was one of the lowest ratings for a Tennessee Republican up for election in 2014. State Rep. Rick Womick believes the Second Amendment gives Tennesseans the right to carry a weapon without obtaining a gun permit. But a House committee and the state’s governor did not agree. “The Second Amendment does not require any kind of permit,” Womick, a Rockvale Republican, previously said. “The Supreme Court upheld the fact that citizens are not required to have any kind of permit to carry a gun anywhere they want to, with exceptions of schools and that kind of thing.” Gov. Bill Haslam’s opposition to Womick’s bill is believed to have something to do with its failure. Haslam has continued to earn his “C” rating by opposing gun rights for Tennesseans. Some believe the governor gave into pressure from anti-gun groups like Mom’s Demand Action. Whatever his reason for opposing the Second Amendment, Tennessee gun owner’s should take note for the next election."

"In an earlier video, I discussed how the Russians, via Sputnik News, viewed Jade Helm 15. After doing an extensive evaluation, we have concluded Jade Helm has more to do with Federal control in the United States."
" The Arctic Ocean could be subjected to potentially harmful oil exploration now that the Department of the Interior has ignored its own scientific analysis and approved leases first sold during the George W. Bush administration. Thirty million acres in the Chukchi Sea will be opened to oil drilling by Shell under leases that the Bush administration sold in 2008. More than a dozen environmental and Alaska Native groups sued last year to stop the drilling, which succeeded in forcing the Interior Department under President Barack Obama to take another look at the plan. The agency’s supplemental environmental impact statement, released two months ago, warned drilling in the Chukchi Sea could have serious negative effects on the region. The analysis said if drilling goes ahead, there is a 75% risk of a large oil spill in an area where it would be virtually impossible to clean up such a mess. The sea is home to about 2,000 polar bears and is the feeding ground for gray whales. And yet, Interior officials decided recently to allow the drilling to go ahead."
