"Today one of the greats in the business warned King World News that Greece will default within two weeks, sending shockwaves around the world! He also stunned KWN when he said what the ECB is about to do to Greece. James Turk: "The situation is Greece is deteriorating rapidly, Eric, and the implications extend far beyond the euro. KWN readers need to be ready just in case there are some nasty surprises over the next couple of weeks that roil markets around the globe…."
"While gold is a main focus of the Central Bank market rigging apparatus, physical silver investment demand is their real enemy. The reason is simple. Central Banks have gold in their vaults to dump on the market (or to lease) to control the price, but they have very little if any silver for this purpose."
"Thirty-one million IQ points. That’s what Dr. David Bellinger determined Americans have collectively forfeited as a result of exposure to lead, mercury, and organophosphate pesticides. In a 2012 paper published by the National Institutes of Health, Bellinger, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, compared intelligence quotients among children whose mothers had been exposed to these neurotoxins while pregnant to those who had not. Bellinger calculates a total loss of 16.9 million IQ points due to exposure to organophosphates, the most common pesticides used in agriculture."
"North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple (R) signed a bill into law on Friday that lays the groundwork for a commercial hemp industry and explicitly cuts the federal government out of the state’s licensing process. House Bill 1436 establishes guidelines for the state’s industrial hemp program and allows people to apply to grow the plant for either research or commercial purposes. With its provision for commercial hemp, the law goes beyond the federal Farm Bill, passed by Congress last year, which allowed some states to cultivate the plant, but only for research purposes and in more restricted pilot programs."
"Many people in the independent media have reported that an estimated 28,000 pastors were recruited by FEMA/DHS, as part of the Clergy Response Team, and that their initial and primary training was to tell their flock to obey the DHS version of Romans 13. Romans 13, in the King James version of the Bible, begins: “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” Romans 13:1. Many of us have been quick to point out that this bastardization of the Romans 13 is designed to force compliance to government edicts who might not otherwise comply. Certainly all governments are not established by God. Were the governments of Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, all ordained by God? What about George the III?"
"We already know that 61% percent of Americans are eager to legalize marijuana, but a 2013 poll shows that a surprising number of doctors are also in support of making cannabis available for medicinal purposes. In response to the survey’s results, researchers stated: “We were surprised by the outcome of polling and comments, with 76% of all votes in favor of the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes – even though marijuana use is illegal in most countries,”
"A 1,000-year-old treatment for eye infections could hold the key to killing antibiotic-resistant superbugs, experts have said. Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow's stomach. They were "astonished" to find it almost completely wiped out methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA. Their findings will be presented at a national microbiology conference. The remedy was found in Bald's Leechbook - an old English manuscript containing instructions on various treatments held in the British Library. Anglo-Saxon expert Dr Christina Lee, from the University of Nottingham, translated the recipe for an "eye salve", which includes garlic, onion or leeks, wine and cow bile. Experts from the university's microbiology team recreated the remedy and then tested it on large cultures of MRSA."
"I’ve always thought those giant Easter bunnies that walk around the mall were sort of creepy. I remember once when my oldest daughter was a toddler her absolute terror when one such mascot bent over her stroller and asked, “Want some candy, little girl?” Well, it seems that her instincts were right. Now that I know what’s in the “treats” that they push, I’m positive that taking candy from strange rabbits is a terrible idea. Today, I’m here to “ruin” Easter for you by telling you exactly what’s in that adorable little basket that pretty much everyone in America gives to their kids. Because, you know, nothing says “Happy Easter” like a beautifully decorated basket full of prettily packaged GMO high fructose corn syrup, dye, processed GMO sugar, and chemical flavoring. (Don’t worry, though. I’ll also “save” Easter with some non-toxic treat suggestions too!) The contents of the average American Easter basket are so genetically modified, it’s a wonder the Easter Bunny hasn’t sprouted an extra ear and a couple of tumors. While they look absolutely adorable, with their marshmallow peeps, chocolate rabbits, mini-eggs, and colorful jelly beans, the ingredients are mostly synthetic, highly processed, and very high on the GMO scale. Here’s a closer look at what is lurking within those cute little candies. Without any further ado, let’s take a closer look at what is lurking within those cute little candies."
"Political elites and super-bureaucrats are worried. It’s becoming harder to control consensus reality. A history stitched together by lies and cover-ups, political assassinations, slight-of-hand false flag deceptions, secret societies, dual loyalties and stolen fortunes – this has been the exclusive privilege of organized crime and the ruling elite for centuries. Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimalize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of “extremist” to speech. They want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas."
"These days it seems that everywhere you turn, the signs are there that the petro-dollar-juiced system is coming unglued. The gale-force winds that have been driving the world to de-dollarize have now literally become almost a raging storm. I’ve always believed that this would indeed be the end game which we’re now witnessing playing out, but currently, even I’m bowled over at how fast the whole deck of cards is being reshuffled. Speaking of reshuffling, over the weekend, several more prominent countries have all but joined China’s regional bank, the AIIB. The East’s star continues to rise to the heavens, as the credit lifeline of the West gets nearer to the end of its rope. We’re not talking about some two-bit players either, these newest nations to sign onto this project are some real doozies! Let’s examine these newest signees together, and discuss the implications."
"The U.S.’news’ media are so censored and controlled, so that even America’s ‘media watchdog’ organizations — mediamatters.org and fair.org on the left; and aim.org and mrc.org on the right — have hidden from the American public President Barack Obama’s Ukrainian coup in February 2014 that violently overthrew Ukraine’s democratically elected President and replaced him with a Ukrainian nazi (racist-fascist) rabidly eliminationist anti-Russian, police-state regime in Kiev, which, ever since America’s coup there, has been ethnically cleansing the Ukrainian Donbass region that had voted 90% for the man, Viktor Yanukovych, whom the Obama Administration overthrew. None of this is reported in the U.S. ‘news’ media — and America’s ‘media watchdog’ organizations hide the media’s hiding of it, though these events could bring on a nuclear war with Russia, which is America’s real target in Ukraine, right next door to Russia."
"Do you realize how often your smartphone is sharing your location data with various companies? It is more than 5000 times in just two weeks. That is little Shocking but True! A recent study by the security researchers from Carnegie Mellon reveals that a number of smartphone applications collect your location-related data — a lot more than you think."
"Among other sweeping new requirements to enhance digital privacy, the bill notably imposes a warrant requirement before police can access nearly any type of digital data produced by or contained within a device or service. In other words, that would include any use of a stingray, also known as a cell-site simulator, which can not only used to determine a phone’s location, but can also intercept calls and text messages. During the act of locating a phone, stingrays also sweep up information about nearby phones—not just the target phone."
"Nashville prosecutors have made sterilization of women part of plea negotiations at least four times in the past five years, and the district attorney has banned his staff from using the invasive surgery as a bargaining chip after the latest case. In the most recent case, first reported by The Tennessean, a woman with a 20-year history of mental illness had been charged with neglect after her 5-day-old baby died mysteriously. Her defense attorney says the prosecutor assigned to the case wouldn’t go forward with a plea deal to keep the woman out of prison unless she had the surgery. Defense attorneys say there have been at least three similar cases in the past five years, suggesting the practice may not be as rare as people think and may happen more often outside the public view and without the blessing of a court."
"We were twenty minutes into one of the most boring Power Point presentations I have ever seen. While we looked at “shaded areas of cross-sections of multiple productive zones of oil fields,” the regulator was droning on and on. You’d think I’d be nodding off. But no, my heart was beating and my palms were sweating. I was about to do one of the boldest actions I have done since becoming an activist three and a half years ago. Professionally dressed in a sedate gray dress and heels, I was seconds away from disrupting something called an “aquifer exemption workshop” led by DOOGR, the Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources, the very state agency that recently had been exposed for illegally allowing oil companies to inject toxic fracking wastewater into 2500 wells near California aquifers."
"Reading and writing skill standards have dropped considerably along with other language skills, especially English. When it comes to actually educating children, schools are really nothing more than daycare warehouses for children to become conditioned for corporate jobs and social compliance. What used to be taught at the high school level is now college level, and before that, high school level was once covered in grade school. Instead of focusing on what should be covered better and on essays to prove a grasp of what's studied instead of multiple choice exams that can be cleverly manipulated by students for higher grades than deserved, the trend is now focusing on politically correct behavior."
"A few months ago, I spoke with a traditional oncologist about laetrile (aka vitamin B17 and amygdalin), which is found in the pits of peaches and apricots, apple seeds, and many other plants and grasses. Despite the fact that the oncologist is really an “outside the box” type thinker, he still believed that the studies have shown laetrile to be ineffective at treating cancer, citing specifically the “California Report” of 1953. Nothing could be further from the truth. The 1953 “California Report” was performed by Dr. McDonald and Dr. Garland, both of whom were advocates of smoking at least at pack of cigarettes a day and both of whom died from cigarettes. It turns out that this “study” was a complete fraud and was later proven to be so (1963 public record). There were also “studies” done in 1953 project at Stanford University, a 1961 study at the University of California-Berkeley, one in 1962 at the Diablo Labs in Berkeley, and a 1965 study on behalf of the Canadian Medical Association at McGill University in Montreal. Every one of these has been tarnished by the same kind of scientific ineptitude, bias, and outright deception and fraud as found in the 1953 California report. Then we have the Sloan-Kettering study by Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura in the 1970s where the Board of Directors ordered him to LIE about his positive laetrile research as being one of the natural cures for cancer. The list goes on and on, but you get the picture, right?"
"If you have a young child, better watch out: She or he may be misdiagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) simply because of their age. That's right, your daughter or son could be linked with a behavioral condition for no other reason than the fact that they were born during a certain year and happen to have a penchant for giggling and well, behaving as children often do. In other words, if they're the youngest and considered the most immature in their kindergarten class, they're more likely to be labeled as having ADHD. In turn, they're prescribed medications like Ritalin. Shockingly, such harmful psych medications are being doled out to 1 million children in the United States for this reason, which often comes from the interpretation of teachers whose opinions are often heavily weighed in the determination of whether or not a child should be prescribed such drugs. Yes, these days, a child being a child is apparently a Ritalin-worthy excuse."
