New weapon could sink N.Y. same-sex marriage
Alleges 'corrupt legislative process' included payoffs, back-room deals

A pro-family lobbying organization in New York is challenging the state's new law legalizing same-sex marriage, claiming improper procedure and back-room payoffs should render the law "null and void."
In a lawsuit filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, officers of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms argue that the state's Marriage Equality Act was passed only with the help of suspended voting rules, shady campaign contributions and a violation of the New York State Open Meeting Laws.
"In what many are heralding as a big step forward for gay rights," the lawsuit charges, "others are questioning whether the corrupt legislative process by which the Act passed renders the entire Act a nullity."
Josh Vlasto, a spokesman for Governor Andrew Cuomo, blasted the suit as "without merit," but Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel and dean of Liberty University School of Law, disagrees.
See how Americans and their Constitution have been betrayed by judge-made law
"Back room tactics were rampant in the passage of this law," Staver wrote in a statement announcing Liberty Counsel's assistance in the filing of the suit. "New York law requires that the government be open and transparent to keep political officials responsible. When government operates in secret and freezes out the very people it is supposed to represent, the entire system fails. … The law should be set aside and the process should begin again to allow the people a voice in the process."
(Story continues below)

Specifically, the lawsuit alleges the Act became law through:
  • Meetings that violated the state's open meeting laws, including a closed-door gathering reported by the New York Times in which billionaire and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg lobbied with Republicans to vote for the Act;
  • The suspension of normal Senate voting procedures to prevent senators who opposed the bill from speaking;
  • Failure to follow Senate procedures that require a bill must be sent to appropriate committees prior to being placed before the full Senate for a vote;
  • Governor Cuomo's violation of a constitutionally mandated three-day review period before the Legislature votes on a bill by issuing a "message of necessity";
  • A private dinner with Republican senators at the governor's mansion, with the public and press excluded, in which Governor Cuomo attempted to persuade passage of the Act;
  • Fulfilled promises by elected officials and Wall Street financiers to make large campaign contributions to Republican senators who switched their vote from opposing to supporting the Act.
The New York Daily News reported that Bloomberg, indeed, contributed over $10,000 apiece to the campaigns of four Republican senators who voted in favor of same-sex marriage.
Î’loomberg aide Micah Leaher told the paper, "The mayor said he would support Senate Republicans who stood up – and he did."
"It is unfortunate that state senators chose to protect their personal interests, rather than the people they were elected to represent," said Rev. Jason J. McGuire, executive director of New Yorkers for Consitutional Freedoms, in a statement. "Some of the players may have changed, but it looks like same old Albany game. It is time the curtain be pulled back and the disinfecting light of good government shine upon the Cuomo administration and our state Legislature."


I pray this puts a monkey wrench in their abominable agenda.... at least for a while.

TSA agents in violation of US Constitution, police must arrest them, says group

by Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The Libertarian Party of Florida recently sent a letter to all 67 county sheriffs in the Sunshine State urging them to stop ignoring the abuses taking place by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) against innocent travelers, and to begin actually enforcing the law and making arrests.

The letter addresses the TSA's blatant disregard for state and federal laws with its routine operations, and correctly identifies the agency's enhanced screening methods as clear constitutional violations.

The letter begins with a petition to Florida's sheriffs to remember that all men and women are granted certain rights that are meant to be protected by the government, not violated or restricted in any way. One of these is protection against unreasonable search and seizure, which is the pretense of the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution.

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, and against the unreasonable interception of private communications by any means, shall not be violated," states the amendment. It goes on to basically say that without a warrant or probably cause, no free individual can be arbitrarily searched or restrained.

And yet every single day, TSA agents unlawfully take naked pictures of innocent air travelers, and subject them to invasive pat-down procedures that are really nothing more than sexual assault. Just because the TSA is a federally-appointed agency does not mean that it is legitimate or even lawful, and the Libertarian Part of Florida hopes that Florida sheriffs will take responsibility and fulfill their duties as law enforcement by putting an end to the abuses.

"As Sheriff, you have the absolute duty to enforce the law uniformly and without prejudice," says the letter. "You are, at best, engaged in selective enforcement by choosing to further ignore these flagrant violations of federal and state law. At worst, you are complicit."

This selective enforcement and complicit dereliction of duty is not limited to Florida, either. Sheriffs all across the US have essentially turned a blind eye to the TSA's criminal activity, most likely out of fear of retribution. But these same sheriffs took an oath to support, protect and defend the Constitution, even if that threat comes from within, and they are lawfully bound to uphold it.

My prayer is that all law enforcement throughout the US will do the same.
Therre is such a spirit of lawlessness throughout the country and the world that I am not sure things will ever return to where they were.
It only serves to remind us saints that this world is not our home.

Murdoch's media malpractice and the genetic altering of human beings through DNA vaccines

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Rupert Murdoch's media empire News Corp., which represents the second largest media conglomerate in the world behind the Walt Disney Company, is taking a severe beating as Murdoch himself is having to address various criminal allegations, including that his News of the World tabloid illegally hacked private phone lines and committed various other crimes (http://www.naturalnews.com/033034_N...).

But Murdoch's media malpractice runs even deeper as his strong connections to the pharmaceutical industry also fueled his media machine's fabrication of lies against Dr. Andrew Wakefield, as well as hid from the public the true dangers of DNA vaccines that permanently corrupt human genes and cause autism.

Murdoch has built quite a reputation for himself as a scoundrel of sorts, as many Americans who identify with the "left" side of the political spectrum have accused him of pandering to the "right" by skewing the news to appeal to "conservatives" (Murdoch owns FOX News, after all).

But what Murdoch's organization is actually doing on all fronts with its various media outlets, including FOX, is pushing much bigger agendas that supersede any alleged "right vs. left" paradigm. One such agenda is News Corp.'s routine censorship of the dangerous truth about drugs and vaccines, which include smear campaigns like those levied against Dr. Wakefield who conduct legitimate research that contradicts mainstream medical thought.

News Corp. systematically destroyed the reputation of Dr. Wakefield, lied about his work

If you are unfamiliar with the Dr. Wakefield story, you can read more about it in previous NaturalNews articles (http://www.naturalnews.com/Andrew_W...). But as a quick recap, Dr. Wakefield basically discovered through credible research that the combination measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine was linked to mental and physiological health problems, and that the individual measles vaccine should be given to children instead until further research on the safety of MMR could be conducted.

The findings were credible, responsibly-derived, and honest in their assessment -- but they resulted in a tirade of lies and slander against Dr. Wakefield.

The statements included false accusations that he is opposed to all vaccinations, that he had manipulated his data, and that he is basically unfit to be a doctor, despite the fact that he is arguably one of the most well-respected and highly-educated gastroenterologists in the world. In the end, though, Dr. Wakefield ended up having his study pulled from the esteemed UK journal Lancet, and his UK medical license was revoked.

And just who was responsible for the annihilation campaign against Dr. Wakefield? None other than Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., which literally fabricated lies about Dr. Wakefield and disseminated them around the world via its multinational media network. News Corp.'s London Times, for instance, falsely accused Dr. Wakefield of being "callous, unethical and dishonest," and published numerous articles saying he was a fraud, and that he "abused his position of trust."

And why, exactly, did News Corp. feel the need to destroy the life and reputation of a man that had done so much to help children with autism and other neurological disorders?

Because Dr. Wakefield's findings were incongruent with the multi-billion-dollar profit ring of multinational pharmaceutical companies like GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Merck Inc., both of which produce and market MMR vaccines.

Murdoch media empire, judicial system closely knit with drug companies

Did you know that Rupert Murdoch's son James Murdoch, who manages the UK paper Sunday Times, is on the board of GSK? Or how about Sir Nigel Davis, the High Court judge that denied parents of children treated by Dr. Wakefield the right to have their claims against vaccine manufacturers heard in a real court? Davis' brother, who is an executive board member of Elsevier, the group that publishes the Lancet, is also on the board of GSK.

An article in the COTO Report also explains that the head of the popular Reuters news service serves on the board of Merck, while a prominent writer at the UK's Daily Mirror is married to the former chairman of GSK. And the list goes on and on.

With all of these strong connections to drug companies, it is no wonder that the media at large wholly participated in the Dr. Wakefield slander campaign -- after all, Dr. Wakefield's work caused millions of people to wake up and begin questioning the safety not only of the MMR vaccine, but also of vaccines in general. And this continued awakening is taking its toll on Big Pharma's profits.

MMR and dozens of other DNA' vaccines essentially create genetically-modified humans

Dr. Wakefield's work uncovered a crucial detail about certain vaccines that ultimately exposes those in this particular category as highly-dangerous, life-altering poisons. Third-generation DNA vaccines like MMR contain genetically-engineered (GE) materials that are injected directly into the body, sort of like how genetically-modified (GM) crop seeds have been injected with altered DNA that changes their genetic makeup -- and these GE traits can permanently alter proper human development.

As far as DNA vaccines are concerned, the GE material they contain is included as part of an overall effort to induce "DNA uptake," a term that is very vaguely defined, but one that appears to infer a literal adoption of altered DNA into the human genetic structure. If this is the case, then DNA vaccines like MMR are overriding normal DNA with altered DNA, which causes the untold changes in human development and health that have been observed.

Based on Dr. Wakefield's findings, this is exactly what appears to occur with MMR vaccines in particular, and it is why he urged the public to skip the MMR vaccine and get the individual vaccines instead. His findings showed that the MMR vaccine is linked to mitochondria dysfunction caused by DNA mutations. And since no proper review of MMR has ever taken place to prove its safety, his professional conclusion was that it was best to stop using it for childrens safety.

Mitochondria, of course, are what power cells and convert energy into forms that are usable by the body. When these do not work properly, the entire human body becomes compromised. Individuals with autism demonstrate mitochondria dysfunction as well as various other problems, which may or may not be possible to cure -- and this, again, is precisely why Dr. Wakefield urged the public to beware of the MMR vaccine.

According to the same COTO Report article mentioned earlier, DNA vaccines like MMR were actually derived from failed gene therapy experiments. In other words, they appear to be a type of genetic experiment that is permanently altering human gene expression and proper DNA development, which in turn lands its victims with permanent, life-altering developmental disorders like autism.

But none of this will ever be addressed by the likes of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., or by most other mainstream news outlets for that matter, because of their close alliance with the drug industry. It is in their best interests to hide the truth from the public, and to continue pushing the lie that all vaccines are safe, and have never been implicated in causing any long-term health problems.

CBS News, however, did recently report on a new review published in the Journal of Immunotoxicology that addresses the issue of third-generation DNA vaccines and autism. That review, entitled Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes -- A review, admits that "[d]ocumented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination."

Scientists find a mass of synthetic chemicals in every glass of milk

by Christina Luisa

(Natural News) When you wake up and go to the kitchen to pour yourself a cold glass of milk, it seems you are filling your body with calcium, vitamins, and an abundance of goodness. That seemingly white beverage may look innocent, but the hidden ingredients packed into the liquid that is a popular staple in the American diet are anything but.

According to a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, scientists have found through analysis that one single glass of milk can contain a delightful (or not) medley of up to 20 different kinds of painkillers, antibiotics and growth hormones (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021...). These medicinal residues, found in samples of cow, goat, and human breast milk, are from a variety of chemicals used to treat animal and human illness.

This research revealed that cow, goat, and human breast milk tested for traces of numerous anti-inflammatory drugs such as niflumic acid, mefenamic acid, flunixin, ibuprofen, diclofenac and ketoprofen -- all of which are commonly used painkillers for animals and humans.

Traces of other drugs, such as lipid regulators, anti-epileptics, beta-blockers, antibiotics and various hormones (such as ethinylestradiol and estrone) were found as well.

A total of 20 pharmacologically active substances were found in the various types of milk in the study. The highest quantities of drug residues and hormones were found in cow's milk. Researchers used an extremely sensitive testing method, called Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry, in order to ensure the testing was successful and accurate.

According to an online article (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...), the milk tested also contained the hormone 17-beta-estradiol, a form of the sex hormone oestrogen.

This hormone was detected at three millionths of a gram in every kilogram of milk, while the highest dose of niflumic acid was less than one millionth of a gram per kilogram of milk. The scientists running the test, led by Dr Evaristo Ballesteros from the University of Jaen in Spain, said their testing method could also be used to check the safety of other types of food.

The amount of these drugs found in milk may have be minute; however, the research results make it entirely too clear how prevalent man-made substances, drugs, and chemicals really are in our food chain.

Researchers believe that the growth-promoting hormones and drugs are all given to cattle and cows at some point, or are often present within contaminated cattle feed.

But wait, there's more. Suffice it to say, everything you know about cow's milk and dairy in general is most likely part of a dairy industry myth. In general, cow's milk is a tainted bodily fluid from diseased animals that contains a wide range of dangerous and disease-causing substances. Here are some further reasons to avoid it altogether.

It can cause and worsen cancer

All cow's milk (both regular and "organic") has 59 active hormones, countless allergens, lots of fat (unless it is skim) and cholesterol. Most cow's milk also has perceptible quantities of herbicides, pesticides, dioxins up to 200 times the safe levels of dioxins, up to 53 powerful antibiotics, blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses (http://www.rense.com/general26/trut...). This milk can potentially have traces of anything the cow ate or was exposed to during its lifespan, including such things as residue from radioactive materials.

Of those 59 mentioned hormones, one is a powerful growth hormone called Insulin- like Growth Factor ONE (IGF-1). This hormone is essentially a "fuel cell" for any cancer. In fact, it has been proven that IGF-1 is the key factor in the growth and proliferation of every breast cancer; the medical world has clearly stated that IGF-1 is not only a key factor in the rapid growth and increase of prostate and colon cancers, but is suspect to promote and worsen ALL cancers, including those that are existing.

This is especially significant considering nearly 40% of women between the ages 40 and 50 have existing cancer in their breasts. The naturally-occurring hormone is identical in humans and cows, and every 12 ounce glass of milk doubles the amount of this hormone in your body. IGF-1 is linked not only to rising cancer rates, but the growth of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

IGF-1 is a normal part of all milk -- and while newborns are supposed to grow quickly, what makes the 50% of obese American consumers (or any adult consumer in general) think they need substances that cause MORE growth? If the residual hormones in milk aren't enough to scare you away from milk, surely the amount of other drugs, man-made chemicals, and dioxins are.

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 90% of the dioxins entering the human body come from dairy products and meat. Considering dioxins are some of the most toxic chemicals known to science, and the EPA has published a report confirming they are cancer hazards to humans, should we really be purposely ingesting substances known to contain them?

It isn't a good source of calcium?

Contrary to popular belief, commercially sold milk is not the best way to get calcium. According to (notmilk.com), American women have been consuming an average of 2 pounds of milk per day throughout the course of their lives, yet 30 million American women have osteoporosis. Ingesting dairy products and drinking milk does not prevent bone loss; in fact, bone loss is expedited by consuming an excess of protein, and milk has often been labeled "liquid meat."

After all, where do the cows get calcium for their big bones? You guessed it... from plants! The calcium they consume from plants has a large amount of magnesium, which is necessary for the body to absorb and actually use the calcium properly.

The calcium in cow's milk, and in dairy products in general, is basically useless because it has insufficient magnesium content. Those nations with the highest amount of milk and dairy consumption also have the highest rates of osteoporosis. Proof? How about a controlled study of 78,000 nurses over a period of 12 years? (http://www.notmilk.com/deb/030799.html) In this Harvard study, women that were consuming greater amounts of dairy foods had significantly increased risks of hip fractures, while there was no recorded increase in fracture risk observed for the same levels of calcium from nondairy sources.

The text of the anti-dairy advertising campaign from the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) specifically reads, "Don't count on milk to beat osteoporosis." The ad mentions the Harvard nurse study and how it proved drinking a few glasses of milk per day did not reduce fractures at all. PCRM's ad campaign is based upon two studies, one published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, and the other in the American Journal of Public Health. The campaign from PCRM refreshingly counteracts the infamous dairy industry "GOT MILK" ad nonsense.

Giving up dairy products, in other words, does not increase one's chances of suffering from a lack of calcium. What it does do is decrease the amount of synthetic chemicals, drugs, and harmful hormones being consumed. Good non-dairy sources of calcium include leafy green vegetables, orange and apple juice, beans, rice milk, tempeh, and calcium/magnesium supplements.

The FDA's End Game may severely limit nutritional supplements and natural products

by Christina Luisa

(NaturalNews)In an interview on The Alex Jones Show, Mike Adams discusses Codex Alimentarius and how it is the FDA's "End Game" to destroy the dietary supplements industry once and for all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kc31...

Under the new laws proposed for the Codex, nutritional supplement, vitamin, and natural product companies would be required by the FDA to analyze each individual ingredient in every product formulated after 1994 and then apply for new approval for these ingredients.

The approval process requires companies to submit extensive applications for each ingredient then research the efficacy and safety of them with clinical trials; if the ingredient is a plant, companies are then required to uncover the name of the original scientist that gave the plant its Latin name. As a result of these new proposed laws, many natural products and supplements will be labeled as "adulterated" and made unavailable to consumers.

If the new laws which call for such action are implemented, this dire situation would cause a serious blow to the economy and result in the devastation of the natural product and supplement industries.

In the following video segments, Mike Adams discusses the implications of these new laws and how they will affect those of us who rely on these products to supplement our healthy lifestyles or offer a form of natural relief from ailments and disease.

Shower filters head off water contaminants

by Alex Malinsky aka RawGuru
See all articles by this author
Email this author


(NaturalNews) Shower filters - Zeolite, Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF), Carbon or Vitamin C - filter destructive particles from shower water and remove harmful vapors in shower stalls by electrochemically charging and converting dangerous particles to harmless ones and/or by neutralizing harmful molecules. Once shower water contaminants are neutralized, people generally see an improvement in skin, hair, lungs and heart health.

Skin disorders, such as eczema or excessively dry/sensitive skin; respiratory disorders, such as asthma and other lung disorders; eye irritation; and dry, brittle hair can all be caused or exacerbated by shower water which is contaminated. Depending upon geographic location and type of water system, shower water may contain fluoride, chlorine, bacteria, arsenic, heavy metals, iron, hydrogen sulfide, VOCs, chloramines, sodium, nitrates and/or other harmful microorganisms. Different types of filters absorb different types of particles, last longer than others, and cost more or less than others.

Shower Filters with Zeolite

Micronized zeolite powder, KDF-55, American-mined virgin quartz, activated alumina, activated charcoal, and Shungite are the components that make up this powerful filtration system. Each of these medias have a very specific purpose such as removing heavy metals, bacteria and viruses with the zeolite and removing fluoride with the activated alumina. The result is softer skin, more manageable hair, and less allergies caused by "dirty" water.

Shower Filters with Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF)

These filters are more expensive than the typical Carbon filters, are made from copper and zinc, and can eliminate certain heavy metals, such as lead, iron, hydrogen sulfate, mercury and chlorine. KDFs have the ability to electrochemically alter harmful particles, thus making them safe for human skin (the actual water) and lung cells (the steam from a hot shower). Another benefit of KDFs is that they prevent mold, fungus and lime from accumulating in the shower. These filters can be expensive and work well with other filtering systems in place. KDFs do not eliminate bacteria, viruses, nitrates, or fluoride.

Shower Filters with Carbon

These filters are the least expensive of all shower filters; yet, they require multiple replacements in one year. Carbon shower filters also have a tendency toward bacterial growth if not changed often. These filters work to eliminate chlorine, radon, sediment and bad tastes/odors; they do not work well on minerals, fluoride, copper, barium, nickel, arsenic, salts or sulfates.

Shower Filters with Vitamin C

This type of shower filter is used mostly in Asia; however, on the Internet, one has access to purchase these more readily, although cost may be an obstacle. A Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, block is the actual filter which the water runs through, mostly eliminating chlorine and chloramines. These filters also have a long showerhead life, lasting anywhere between six and twelve months.

For healthier skin and hair and for improved respiratory capacity, people using shower filters for health can relax, knowing that their lungs are not breathing and their skin is not "drinking" substances which have ill effects upon their health.

Hollywood begins mass brainwashing campaign to get people ready for the next bioengineered virus release

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The entertainment industry is no stranger to government propaganda campaigns, and the latest Hollywood flicks are no exception. A quick look at the trailer for the upcoming release of the movie Contagion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sYS...) reveals what appears to be a massive brainwashing campaign designed to prepare the American psyche for the next intentional release of a bioengineered virus -- and it also conveniently and subtly programs viewers into accepting the idea that vaccines might be the solution to a major, devastating disease outbreak.

This tactic is nothing new, of course. If you look back at the themes of major movie releases over the past several decades and compare them to what ends up taking place in the real world not too long after, it becomes eerily clear that Hollywood is deeply connected to the agendas of those that are now in control of various world governments, including the US government.

Many, if not most, movies released today appear to be nothing more than psychological manipulation designed to either dull the minds of the people into accepting a certain agenda, or to literally condition people's minds for upcoming disastrous events.

Armageddon movie conditioned public for September 11, 2001, attacks

If this sounds like crazy talk to you, consider a few examples of pre-9/11 warnings. In the 1998 movie Armageddon, there is an ominous scene where, upon hitting terrible New York City traffic, a taxi driver tells his passengers that the reason for it could have been a "terrorist bomb."

A few moments later, the World Trade Center towers appear on the screen greatly damaged from having been hit by asteroids. And at another point in the movie, a space ship countdown clock is shown stuck in the "9:11" position. You can view a clip containing these scenes here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkwa...

Is all this just a coincidence? Perhaps. But the fact that in the movie Saddam Hussein is blamed for the "attacks," the damaged twin towers appear oddly similar to the way they actually appeared years later on 9/11 prior to their collapse, and the countdown clock is stuck in the "9:11" position, point to concerted preconditioning efforts to the actual event that would take place just a few years later.

Numerous movies and television shows were also fixated on the numbers 9 and 11 prior to the actual events on that date

If the Armageddon example is not enough, consider the following additional references to 9/11 in various movies and television shows:

- In the movie The Matrix, which was released in 1999, a discreet image of a passport belonging to Mr. Thomas A. Anderson, aka "Neo," shows an expiration date of September 11, 2001. Even more interesting is the fact that this image appears at 18 minutes and 11 seconds into the movie, which translates into 8 + 1 = 9, followed by the 11 (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-image...).

- In the movie Pearl Harbor, which was also released in 1999, the results of the Ben Affleck character's eye exam read a clear "911." The Pearl Harbor event itself, of course, was a surprise military strike against the US by the Imperial Japanese Navy (http://photo.livevideo.com/photo/pe...). Coincidence?

- In an episode of the popular television show The Simpsons that aired in 1997, the premise involves Homer Simpson having to go retrieve his illegally-parked car from the World Trade Center.

Lisa Simpson is seen holding up a brochure with an advertisement for $9 bus rides to New York City, and the "9" is positioned right next to the two towers, which together appear as "911." The episode also happened to be season 9, episode 1 (http://photo.livevideo.com/photo/th...).

These are just a few of the many examples of odd occurrences prior to the events of 9/11. You can view a larger photo set that includes many other examples here:
http://photo.livevideo.com/photo/ha...

Popular media has been hinting at a deadly virus outbreak for years

Based on the positioning of what appear to be 9/11 hints prior to the actual event, it appears that one of the next disastrous events on the agenda will be a deadly bio-warfare pandemic of some sort.

The movie Contagion, as well as numerous others in recent years including the 1995 movie Outbreak and the 2009 movie 2012, just to name a few, all seem to be pointing to the release of a deadly virus that will kill millions of people.

Even the media has had a hankering for deadly viruses over the past several years. In 2009, it was the great swine flu / H1N1 scare (http://www.naturalnews.com/swine_fl...). And prior to that, it was the deadly bird flu epidemic (http://www.naturalnews.com/bird_flu...).

Perhaps it is all just one giant coincidence, and there really is no deliberate plan to release deadly, bioengineered viruses. But if mainstream news and entertainment media really is laced with psychological warnings about future events, it is important to take careful note of them now in order to be as prepared as possible.

This proves to me that many incidents are being planned to cause  the anihilation of millions of people. As we pray, trust God. He is in control.

Congressmen File SUIT Against Obama's illegal WARS

US government openly admits arming Mexican drug gangs with 30,000 firearms - but why?

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) It is now a widely-reported fact that under the Obama administration, U.S. federal agents actively placed over 30,000 fully-functional weapons into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, then halted all surveillance and tracking activities of where those weapons were going.

This is not a conspiracy theory, nor a piece of fiction. It is now an openly-admitted fact that this was pulled off by the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, more commonly called "ATF") under orders from Washington. The program was called "Fast and Furious."

Even Reuters is now covering the news and reporting how members of Congress are outraged to learn that this happened (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011...).

Details are also starting to leak about the cover-up inside ATF, which was led by the U.S. Attorney in Arizona, Dennis Burke, an Obama appointee (http://dailycaller.com/2011/07/06/i...). The engineering of the illegal gun running went right up the chain of command to the director of the ATF, Kenneth Melson, who is now expected to resign. The real planning of this event went even higher up the chain of command in Washington, possibly all the way to Attorney General Eric Holder (http://dailycaller.com/2011/06/21/i...).

Among the firearms sold to the Mexican drug gangs were AK-47s, thousands of pistols and, remarkably, .50-caliber rifles which are typically used to disable vehicles or carry out sniper-based assassinations at extremely long ranges (up to two miles). The mainstream media is now reporting that these weapons are turning up in violent crimes being committed in Phoenix, Arizona. As an ABC news affiliate reports:

"According to the testimony of three Phoenix ATF agents, including Dodson, hundreds of weapons are now on the streets in the United States and Mexico, possibly in the hands of criminals. Dodson estimated the number could be as many as 1,800 weapons. He estimated agents in the Phoenix field division facilitated the sale of approximately 2,500 weapons to straw purchasers. A few hundred have been recovered." (http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/local...)

How the "Fast and Furious" program put thousands of weapons directly into the hands of Mexican drug gangs

Here's how "Fast and Furious" worked: Under orders from Washington, ATF agents were specifically told to acquire these weapons using "straw" buyers in the USA, find new buyers in Mexican drug gangs, then sell the weapons and "lose track" of them. Although some agents raised concerns about the insanity, they were overruled by the higher-ups in Washington who wanted to pursue this policy for their own reasons. "It made no sense to us either, it was just what we were ordered to do, and every time we questioned that order there was punitive action," said Phoenix Special Agent John Dodson.

But what could be the reasons for Washington initiating such a program in the first place? Why would the Obama administration actively send 30,000 sniper rifles, assault weapons and firearms into Mexico even while claiming to follow an anti-gun stance back in the USA?

To answer that question, you need to understand P.R.S -- Problem, Reaction, Solution. It is the "playbook" that governments use to get what they want, which usually involves: 1) Disarming their populations, 2) Taking away all their rights and freedoms, and then 3) Ruling over their people as tyrants with complete power.

Precisely such an effort is now underway in the United States, led by the Obama administration which has repeatedly demonstrated itself to be an enemy of the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

How Problem, Reaction, Solution really works

If you're the U.S. government, you can't just announce a new program to disarm the country, end the Bill of Rights and install yourself as the King. People won't go for it if you try to sell it that way. Instead, you need to find a way to get people to BEG you to do all that.

So you need a way to put people in a state of mind where they are terrified of drugs, terrified of guns and terrified of the border violence -- to the point where they insist that somebody in Washington do something about it.

Therefore, you first need a way to cause the problem that results in all the violence that people react to. You effectively need to create violence and then wait for people to beg you to stop it.

This is where the Obama administration's program to send 30,000 firearms into Mexico comes into play. If you want to cause gun violence and drug war violence, what better way to accomplish it than to just arm all the bad guys?

Think about it: 30,000 weapons in the hands of drug criminals! Then all you have to do is sit back and wait for all the violence to kick in. And it has kicked in -- in huge numbers. Shootings on the border, kidnappings, armed conflict across the border with U.S. border agents, and so on. Violent crimes in Arizona are now being committed with these very same weapons the ATF trafficked into the hands of Mexican drug gangs.

As Judicial Watch president Tim Fitton explains, his belief is that Operation Fast and Furious was purely an anti-gun political ploy from the Obama administration, designed to put more guns into the hands of criminals as a justification for confiscating guns from all citizens. He adds, "I think another major part of this story is that the narrative of the Obama administration and the ATF is that, 'wouldn't it be great if we could tie guns, as part of our anti-gun agenda, to the Mexican civil war, as opposed to, you know, our lack of enforcement of the drug laws or failure to protect the borders.'" (http://dailycaller.com/2011/06/21/i...)

And here's the real kicker: Of all the weapons now being confiscated by police in Mexico, an astonishing 70 percent came from the United States. So now you have a situation where the USA is actually arming the criminals in Mexico and destabilizing that country's entire system of law and order. The drug gangs are at war with the police there, and thanks to thinks like U.S.-supplies AK-47s and .50-caliber sniper rifles, the drug gangs are winning!

ATF can now demand more power and bigger budgets

Getting back to the U.S. issue, if you're the DEA or the ATF, you now have 30,000 more reasons to have your own budgets increased. There's a wave of violence coming across the border! The drug gangs are out of control! They're shooting back!

Well gee, I wonder why? It's because the ATF actually sold them these 30,000 rifles under orders from Washington.

And now the Obama administration is, predictably, saying there's so much "gun violence" in the Southern USA that new laws are needed to curb gun sales there.

Seriously? New laws? What about the 30,000 guns the ATF openly and admittedly sold to the Mexican drug gangs? Wasn't that already a violation of law?

It all comes back to Problem, Reaction, Solution, you see. Want to keep the useless War on Drugs going a little longer? Just dump a few thousand pounds of cocaine into the hands of criminals and let 'em run loose with it. Want to beef up the budgets of the ATF? Just distribute 30,000 illegal weapons into the hands of drug gangs and then sit back and wait for people to beg for your help. Want to justify a war on "terror" in the Middle East? Dream up some stupid story about Weapons of Mass Destruction and then launch a war.

For every power-hungry tyrannical agenda in Washington, there's a false flag operation that will make it come true.

If the U.S. government would actively arm drug gangs, in what other ways might it betray the American people?

Now that you know the truth about how Washington put 30,000 guns into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, it naturally makes you start to wonder about the government's involvement with things like vaccines.

Want to make people so afraid of infectious disease that they beg for vaccines? Just release an infectious disease into the population yourself! It's a simple matter, really.

Want to get the public to beg for new food safety regulations? Just release e.coli into the food supply and then wait for the deaths to be reported in the news. All of a sudden people are demanding more food safety regulations.

Want to justify military imperialism and expansion? Just stage your own terrorist attack against your own country! Then magically find the passports of some terrorists at the scene of the crime and blame the whole thing on them.

When theory becomes fact

You see, all this used to exist solely in the realm of conspiracy theory. A few years ago, if you even suggested this kind of thing was going on, you were called a kook. But now it's an established fact being reported by Reuters, Washington Post and other major news outlets. Now the U.S. government has been forced to admit that yes, it actively delivered 30,000 firearms into the hands of Mexican drug gangs and then intentionally stopped tracking where they went.

This is no longer conspiracy theory. It's conspiracy FACT. And similar types of operations are being planned right now for other agendas the government has in mind: Taking away your Fourth Amendment rights, for example. How do you accomplish that? Just stage an airport terrorism attack, just like the one the TSA was caught rehearsing in Minnesota (http://www.naturalnews.com/032458_T...).

Want to take away peoples' Second Amendment rights? Just brainwash some low-IQ psychopath to walk into a shopping mall and start blazing away with fully automatic weapons that were provided to him by the ATF!

It's simple, you see. Pick a topic, choose an agenda, then cause the problem yourself. Then sit back and wait for the reaction. Works every time.

The CDC pulled the same stunt back in the 1980's with AIDS. At a time when the CDC was facing severe budget cuts, it actually hyped up the whole AIDS epidemic and started releasing complete scientific fictions as if they were fact. The disease mongering by the CDC caused widespread fear and panic across the country, earning it huge budget increases from the U.S. government.

This is all fully documented in the movie House of Numbers, by the way, using recorded video interviews from many of the key scientists involved in the whole fiasco who finally went on record to tell the truth. Almost everything you've been fed about AIDS is a fabrication or a distortion of the scientific truth. Watch these astonishing videos to see for yourself:

The American government is working AGAINST you, not for you

The point in all this is that much of what you see happening in the world today in terms of terrorism, the drug war, infectious disease and health care are just fabricated, staged events actually pulled off by the very people who stand to benefit from the reaction!

Suckers and sheeple always believe the mainstream news at face value. They believe we're under attack from terrorists who bring down tall buildings, or we're being assaulted by Mexican drug gangs on the border, or we're threatened by the Swine Flu. That's what suckers are supposed to believe, you see: That your government is never working against you... it's always working FOR you, right?

But intelligent people know the opposite is true: Your government is usually plotting against you and trying to figure out how to expand its power, expand its reach, reduce your freedoms and control your life. This is accomplished by unleashing the very problems that the government claims to be fighting to prevent.

The government, for example, says it's trying to solve our nation's economic problems. And how does it accomplish that? By generating trillions of dollars in new fiat currency and handing it over to the criminals running Wall Street. This has the net effect of stealing money from everybody else through dollar devaluation.

How does the government solve our national health care crisis? By enacting Obamacare, which mandates that more people buy into a system that has utterly failed to serve the health interests of the American people in the first place!

So at the very same time the government says it's working to improve the economy, it's actually stealing from you behind your back. At the very same time the government says it's trying to stop cancer, its own health-related agencies (National Cancer Institute, for example) are openly engaged in massive disinformation campaigns that spread false information about sunlight being "dangerous" to your health (while conveniently ignoring the truth about vitamin D and its cancer preventive properties).

The government says it wants to make your food safer, and yet the USDA keeps approving genetically modified foods that are essentially massive biological experiments that cause widespread infertility and disease.

The same story goes on and on... with fluoride in the water, mercury in dental fillings, aspartame in diet sodas, pesticide use in agriculture and so on. At nearly every turn, the government itself is actively plotting against the People to keep them financially enslaved, biologically diseased and mentally ignorant.

Shipping guns into Mexico, you see, is just a tiny part of the big picture that's going on today in the USA. The same process -- Problem, Reaction, Solution -- is in use almost everywhere in government at both the state and federal level.

Big Government is the enemy of peace and freedom

Bureaucrats hate to lose their jobs, and if there's a way to stage something that makes them suddenly look more important, they won't hesitate to roll it out. The U.S. government, just so you know, has been actively engaged in weapons trafficking, drug running and counterfeiting for decades. If you or I did what our own government does every single day, we'd be arrested as felony criminals. But when the government runs guns into Mexico, or traffics in cocaine, or prints counterfeit dollar bills that have no backing with real value, somehow it's all okay.

Amazing how our own government has now turned into the very criminals that it claims to be protecting us against, isn't it? Who are the real terrorists in America? The ATF agents running guns into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, of course. And the FBI agents who set up Arab-looking patsies to try to set off fake bombs that the FBI actually assembled for them!

By the way, Alex Jones (www.PrisonPlanet.com) has been covering all this for years. He's been saying this all along, and time and time again, he's been proven right. I realize his presentation style may seem a little intense to some people, but at the end of the day, Alex Jones is far more accurate at decoding what's really going on behind the scenes than any mainstream news channel or newspaper. Here's an article from InfoWars on this very topic: http://www.infowars.com/obama-admin...

I'm scheduled to host the Alex Jones show next week and will likely be discussing more about the ATF's gun-running activities in Mexico. In the mean time, stay tuned to NaturalNews.com for more stories that aren't afraid to report the truth about what's really happening in our world today.

World to be force-fed test tube meat after livestock failure

by C.E Burch

(NaturalNews) In vitro meat is one of the latest attempts from scientists and bio-engineers to create a substitute for traditional meat production. The technology for creating meats through meat cultures in vitro is far from perfected, but enthusiasm for the effort is plentiful. Support for cultured meat technology comes from a wide spectrum of interests as well.

Many vegans are stepping forward in endorsement of the pseudo meats citing the cruelty of traditional animal meat production, the use of hormones, antibiotics and ultimately the slaughter of millions of animals yearly.

Animal rights advocates have also stepped forward in support of this technology. In fact, PETA has gone so far as to offer a reward of a million dollars to any entity that can develop an in vitro meat product that can be cost effectively mass produced.

The scientists and backers of this technology suggest that a burgeoning population makes developing in vitro meats a necessity for a litany of reasons. For instance, traditional animal husbandry requires vast tracts of land, and stores of water.

Livestock also contributes to global warming. Pundits suggest that in vitro meat will be safer and healthier. Their reasoning includes the argument that cholesterol and fat can be regulated during production. In addition, because the product will be produced under strict quality control, food borne bacteria will be significantly reduced.

How is in vitro meat produced?

A simple explanation of in vitro meat includes:

1. Harvesting of cells from a healthy donor animal

2. Separation of cells from tissue - Primarily muscle cells and stem cells

3. Cultivating cells in a nutritious solution

4. Bulking newly formed tissue up

5. Mincing for meat product

That sounds easy enough. What's the problem? Apparently there are a few. For example, though there has been success in making in vitro meat strips suitable for mincing, the appearance and taste of the meat is less than appealing up to this point.

The technology is far from economical at this stage for a variety of reasons. For instance, much of the current production of in vitro meat relies on using non animal based nutrients to grow the cells in. Animal products can't be used in the process because the cells can't digest animal derived nutrients themselves. Instead solutions must contain nutrients from other sources such as plant and microorganisms. This result in a slower process, so mass production is not available at this point.

Though in vitro meat production doesn't require the use of genetically modified organisms, the idea of using enhanced meat is being discussed as a means to speeding up the production process. In addition, the use of growth hormone has also been considered by some researchers.

Engineered meat may help meet the high demand world wide as traditional ranching and farming flounders under the demand, but there are unanswered questions with the use of these products. For instance, how will in vitro meat stack up nutritionally to natural beef?

Will in vitro meats be affordable especially to people in third world countries or to poor people in developed nations? Will GMOs and growth hormones be necessary for the production of this food, and who will have control over this new technology?

Meat consumption may not necessarily be essential to survival, but animal products remain one of the most efficient ways of acquiring certain nutrients such as B12, and iron. This is especially important for areas with limited agricultural opportunities and for cultures that rely heavily on animal products for sustenance.

In vitro meats are also a concern for people who are concerned about turning over control of the world s food supply to a handful of agribusinesses. For specialized food production such as in vitro products may be cost prohibitive, and traditional family owned agribusinesses will likely go bankrupt.

The world has an enormous appetite for animal products and that combined with a population explosion means that we will have to look for solutions that are affordable, safe and nutritious. If we are unable to do so, control of the world's food supplies will slip away from individuals, families, regions, and even independent nations and fall into the hands of large agribusinesses and corporations. Even more disturbing will be having no control whatsoever in what goes in to the foods we eat.

Furthermore relinquishing control over what foods we eat and how it is produced sets a dangerous president as well. For instance, will we be penalized if we choose to raise our own foods, or buy natural or organic foods produced by small companies?

Will the in vitro meat industry be required to label their foods for any genetic modifications they deem necessary? Science has made huge contributions to food production and feeding the population.

However, science shouldn't rule the world; rather it should enhance and support the population and their will. Here is a quote from the web page of The Centre for Society and Genomics, a think tank heavily invested in in vitro meat based in the Netherlands, for your consideration:

"Genomics can lead to better quality foodstuffs. What's more, genomics research can contribute towards a personalized diet, leading to a healthier lifestyle. But are these promises not too rash, considering the complex relationship between food and health? And what if the knowledge and opportunities are available, but consumers refuse to follow the lifestyle that is good for them, should they then be held personally responsible for the consequences?"

TSA screener sticks traveler's iPad down his pants, steals $50,000 in other electronics

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) For all the advanced security and screening techniques it uses against innocent air travelers, the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) sure has a hard time keeping its own corrupt workers from committing crimes against those it is supposedly tasked with protecting.

According to a recent report in Broward - Palm Beach New Times, 30-year-old Nelson Santiago, a former TSA worker, stole at least $50,000 worth of electronics from passengers at Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood International Airport's Terminal 1 within the last six months, including a traveler's iPad that he shoved down his pants during a routine screening.

So while innocent airline travelers were busy being herded through naked body scanners and physically violated by other government workers who were grabbing their private parts, Santiago was rummaging through their luggage and snagging whatever appeared to be of high value.

His spoils included laptop computers, GPS devices, video cameras, and a slew of other high-dollar electronics -- and this time when he was actually caught, it was an iPad that he literally swiped from a bag and tried to hide in his pants.

Somehow the entire TSA security circus was distracting enough for Santiago to have the time to dig through travelers' personals, find items of value, steal them, take pictures of them, and immediately upload them online to sell.

Reports indicate that Santiago often sold the items to buyers online before he had even finished his TSA shift at the airport for the day. But this time, he was caught red-handed with his loot, and was subsequently fired from his TSA position. He was also arrested and later released on a $4,000 bond where he awaits potential further charges.

TSA officials claim the incident is isolated, and that it has a "zero tolerance for theft." But if this is true, why did the agency fail to address the countless other thefts committed by Santiago in the months prior to the iPad incident?

Surely the passengers from whom he stole at least $50,000 worth of electronics from reported their losses to police and to the agency -- upon which they were likely told that authorities would "look into the situation."

In truth, the only reason it appears Santiago was held responsible for his crimes is because he was actually caught doing it this time. His many other thefts, which took place behind the cloak of TSA's "advanced" security protocols, were never properly addressed, and they likely never would have been were it not for Santiago's idiocy in the iPad stunt.

The real danger when flying is having to deal with the TSA and its screening methods. Not only do air travelers have to worry about deadly radiation being blasted at them from the naked body scanners, as well as the probing and prodding fingers of agents violating their personal privacy and freedom during pat downs, but now they have to worry about getting robbed.

Since December 2010, roughly ten TSA screeners have been arrested for property theft, while numerous others have been arrested for serious crimes like possessing child pornography, trafficking drugs, and even assaulting passengers (http://www.naturalnews.com/the_TSA.html).

In other news, TSA agents working at Newark International Airport in New Jersey were recently disciplined summoned to additional "training" after their coworkers accused them of acting like "Mexican hunters" by profiling passengers of Mexican and Dominican descent for no particular reason (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/06/12/national/main20070709.shtml).

They want to watch us but we have to watch them also. As believers the Lord is looking out for us. When someone steals from us they are stealing from the Lord. He will repay them to their face ( Deut.7:10 ).

Activist Post: Agenda 21 Indoctrination Going Global at Warp Speed

Doctors refusing to treat overweight patients?

by J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) Increasingly, if you're not a healthy person already, more and more doctors are shying away from you. In a profession where the axiom, "Do No Harm" is supposed to reign supreme, some physicians are saying "Don't Come to Me" instead, especially for patients who are obese.

A few doctors in Florida have begun to turn away obese patients, claiming they come with too many health problems and risks. Some physicians who specialize in obstetrics and gynecology in particular, have set weight limits for new patients or other measures of obesity. Any woman who surpasses those standards is turned away.

"People don't realize the risk we're taking by caring for these patients," said Dr. Albert Triana, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "There's more risk of something going wrong and getting sued. Everything is more complicated with an obese patient in GYN surgeries and in [pregnancies]."

In the South Florida region alone, 15 OB/GYN practices out of 105 polled by the newspaper turned away obese patients. Some practices set weight limits of 200 pounds; others 250 pounds.

Part of the problem, say the physicians, is that obese patients tend to have more health issues. Another reason is continuity of practice; since obesity causes other medical problems, the doctors say they then have to send their patients to other physicians who specialize in those problems.

"This is not a high-risk practice," one medical office manager told the paper, adding that the physicians in that particular OB/GYN office "are not experts in obesity."

Doctors who specialize in OB/GYN practices have for years turned away pregnant women who are obese, referring them instead to specialists. But now, that trend is moving towards women who are not pregnant, just obese.

Not all physicians feel that way. Some area doctors interviewed by the paper said they would never consider turning away obese patients.

"If I had that policy, I wouldn't have a practice. I'd lose half my patients," Dr. Maureen Whelihan, a West Palm Beach OB/GYN said. "We never turn down anyone. We would see them, and if we had to, we would refer them to a specialist."

Medical ethicists say doctors turning people away because of what is clearly a medical condition is just plain wrong.

"To refuse to even see a patient because they are overweight is not reasonable and not ethical," said Dr. Charles D. Rosen, president of the Association of Medical Ethics, told CBS News.

"This is discriminating against people who have a medical problem. It is like discriminating against someone who is African-American or short or has a certain employment," he added.
Coconut sugar quickly replacing agave nectar as natural sweetener of choice

Dear NaturalNews readers,
Over the last two years, we've witnessed a mass exodus away from agave nectar and a search for more natural sweeteners that are both low on the glycemic index and high in nutrient density. Several candidates have emerged, but my all-out favorite has become coconut sugar, which is really more like a coconut caramel sap.
This sweetener is fast becoming extremely popular among raw foodies, vegans and vegetarians. Many have switched from agave nectar to coconut sugar for all the reasons I'm covering here.
The coconut sugar (sap) I've been using is a 100% pure organic crystallized coconut sap from Thailand. It's harvested from the sap of unopened coconut blossoms, then boiled under controlled heat to drive off the water and condense the liquid to a dark brown sap. There are no additives used, no bleaching, and absolutely no stripping of minerals or other nutrients. It's not a raw food, however. Cooking the sap is a necessary part of concentrating it, just like with maple syrup, which is really a concentration of the watery maple sap.
The result is a thick, liquid "caramel" sap that's brown in color and extremely sweet. It tastes almost like fudge, and some people even eat it like fudge. (Intense sweetness!) I use it in smoothies, where I've found it to offer the most full-spectrum sweetness taste from any natural sweetener I've ever tried. Agave nectar was great, but coconut sugar is so much better -- it actually reminds me of the richness of raw cane sugar juice that I used to drink in South America.
Works in smoothies, recipes and hot beverages
This caramelized coconut sugar is also very handy in its sap format: It melts easily in hot beverages, it mixes easily in recipes, and it blends easily in smoothies. Amazingly, it's only 12% sugar, and it's high in potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. It's also high in several key B vitamins, so eating it is not just delicious; it's also healthy! (My theory is that the presence of certain trace minerals enhances the sweetness and richness of the flavor without needing high sugar content like you'll find in refined sugar...)
This is my new sweetener of choice, and it's so good that we shipped in a few thousand units and put it on sale so that NaturalNews readers can try it at a 29% discount off regular pricing. Click here to check out our 3 lb. Thai Coconut Sugar at the NaturalNews Store.
When you buy a 3-pack (three pails) of our Thai Coconut Sugar (9 lbs total), the discount is increased to 36% off. We're doing this at such a great discount to help introduce you to this amazing product so you can try it yourself.
We also have the same product available in smaller jars at up to 36% off, too. However, it's a far better value to purchase in the larger pails, where the final price is less than $6 / pound based on the 3-pack discount.
You will be amazed by the taste of this Thai coconut sugar. There's nothing like it in the world of natural sweeteners. I encourage you to actually try it straight! It's an intense, fudge-like taste with an amazing texture that just melts in your mouth. Drop it into smoothies or recipes to give them a taste of heaven.
The claimed glycemic index (GI) of this food is 35 -- which is extraordinarily low for a sweetener. Over the years, however, I've gained a fair amount of skepticism about the GI numbers that sweetener companies claim. However, I've been using it regularly and have had no blood sugar issues at all -- and I used to be hypoglycemic and borderline diabetic, so I'm extremely sensitive to my own blood sugar fluctuations. Try it yourself and I think you'll be surprised at the minimal impact this has on blood sugar (which is probably due in part to the high trace mineral content it contains).

Enjoy!
