‘New legislation that would override Vermont’s mandatory GMO labeling laws have unearthed a new shady prospect; a Monsanto and Whole Foods compromise. Two members of the Senate Committee of Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry – Chairman Sen. Pat Roberts (KS) and Ranking Member Sen. Debbie Stabenow (MI) — created a “compromise” in a new legislation that would override the Vermont law.
The CEOs of Monsanto, Whole Foods, Stonyfield, Smucker’s and Organic Trade Association lobbyists were at the supporting press conference to back the new bill.’
‘Mindfulness-based teachings have shown benefits in everything from inflammatory disorders to central nervous system dysfunction and even cancer. Training groups in mindfulness has become a powerful tool in preventative intervention. Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) are studying how cognitive therapy that uses mindfulness techniques serve as an alternative to pharmaceuticals.
Mindfulness is “the intentional, accepting and non-judgemental focus of one’s attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment”, which can be trained by a large extent in meditational practices.’
‘Federal land managers are engaged in a reckless experiment as they spray North American wildlands with enormous quantities of herbicides without collecting any data on the effects of these practices, warned a team of international researchers from Europe, the United States, Mexico and Canada in a study published in the Journal of Applied Ecology.
The study marks the first effort to quantify herbicide use on North American wildlands.
“The numbers are much less than those for croplands, but they are astonishing,” said lead author Viktoria Wagner, of Masaryk University in the Czech Republic.’
‘Despite the growing body of evidence proving that natural cancer treatments are more effective than those involving dangerous pharmaceuticals, the cancer industry continues killing patients in its reckless pursuit of profits – as evidenced by the latest death which occurred during clinical trials of an experimental drug made by biotech company Ziopharm Oncology Inc.
A patient suffering from a recurrent brain tumor died from bleeding in the skull shortly after beginning treatment with the Ziopharm gene therapy drug known as Ad-RTS-hIL-12.
The drug is designed to be injected directly into a tumor, theoretically producing a tumor-shrinking autoimmune response, but the patient in question instead suffered from an intracranial hemorrhage 15 days after receiving the Ad-RTS-hIL-12 injection.’
‘In the past few years, LSD, mushrooms, ketamine and MDMA are coming out of the closet, with researchers studying these substances as potential treatments for anxiety, depression, PTSD and addiction. It’s exciting research and it’s taking off for the first time since 1970, when Richard Nixon signed the Controlled Substances Act into law.
The law classified hallucinogenic substances like LSD, DMT, psilocybin (the psychedelic alkaloid in mushrooms) and mescaline as Schedule I substances—the most restrictive category, reserved for drugs with “high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use.” Although there are still research bans on the drugs, scientists are getting creative about obtaining funding, while governments are facing increasing pressure to allow medical research on psychedelic substances.’
‘Never doubt the ballistic factor of Laura Ingraham. Ingraham is never into facts, which tend to be the unwanted gate crashers of her party. What matters in that particular world view is sentiment, often tinged by viciousness. In so far as it matters, she is the great weapon that someone like Trump needs: intangible, but feeling; vicious but at heart sincere about her prejudices. In truth, the most prejudiced are as sincere as the great idealists.’
‘The Hague-based International People’s Tribunal has ruled that the Indonesian regime that replaced Indonesian President Sukarno committed crimes against humanity in 1965. The governments of Australia, Britain, and the United States have also been pronounced guilty as complicit partners in the massacre of 500,000 to 1000,000 people or more in Indonesia.
People were murdered in Indonesia due to their principles, political ideology, ethnic backgrounds, and opposition to foreign influence. Albeit the ruling is an important historical acknowledgment, the assistance that the Australian, British, and US governments provided to the coup and played in the massacres is not a secret.’
‘The Unites States, once more, under false pretenses is attempting – and possibly succeeding – in punishing, or in Washington’s jargon, ‘sanctioning’ Russia for allegedly having systematized doping during the 2014 Sochi Olympics. They know no scruples, these masters of lies and manipulations in Washington. Fortunately, they are becoming more and more careless and flagrant in what they are doing – so that increasingly people will become aware of the criminal nature of the Washington government and its European vassals which support whatever atrocities the US is inflicting – or attempting to inflict – on the world.
In this case Washington already enlisted their vassal Canada to write to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in Lausanne, Switzerland, requesting exclusion of Russia from the 2016 Olympics in Rio. They are doing the same with European vassals – asking them to put pressure on the IOC.’
