Obama kill switch | Breaking News

(www.Borganic.org) The Obama administration is busy attempting to pass legislation that would give the President a kill switch for the Internet in the United States while at the same time decrying Egyptian authorities for shutting down the Internet in a bid to deflate the unfolding revolution against Hosni Mubarak. The reason is simple – the government fears an Egypt-style revolt occurring in the U.S. and wants to block access to the world wide web if and when it happens.

Chicago radio host and occasional Alex Jones Show guest Mancow Muller called it right during an appearance on Mike Huckabee’s show this weekend.

“It’s in all the newspapers, ‘Ohblahblah’, we’ve got to free up Twitter, we’ve got to free up the Internet and Facebook for these poor Egyptians – this is the President that let Wikileaks and all of this stuff happen,” said Mancow.

“They create the problems and we react to fear — the the four letter f-word that controls the masses and they offer the solution, “they” being the government. This is the President that wants the kill switch for the Internet….he wants a kill switch.”

“They fear….social networking, Twitter, Facebook, all of this stuff, but oh, no, we must have it in Egypt, but we don’t want to have it in America.”

Mancow also pointed out how Egyptians were rioting over an economic fallout that has led to crippling tax hikes, wage reductions and spiraling food prices, a similar situation to what is unfolding in America, making reference to how Illinois state authorities recently agreed to hike taxes by a whopping 66 percent.

As we have illustrated, despite invoking supposedly genuine security concerns, the only time governments have resorted to shutting down the world wide web is when they feel the need to crush legitimate dissent against the state.

Indeed, at the height of the Stuxnet worm attack, the crisis was cited as another reason why cybersecurity legislation giving government control of the Internet was necessary. It later emerged that the Stuxnet virus itself was created by the US and Israel to target Iran’s nuclear program.

The Communist Chinese government is now blocking searches for the word “Egypt” on social networking websites in China, reflecting “the government’s fears that the protests in Egypt could whip up unrest in China.”

Sina.com public relations officer Ma Taotao confirms that Chinese searches for Egypt are blocked on its instant messaging site, Sina Weibo.

Ma says the company itself did not make the decision, but is only following the “relevant Chinese laws and regulations.” He gives no details and does not say which government department is responsible. He says he does not know how long the restriction will be in force.

The authoritarian Chinese government routinely blocks Internet access when it wishes to derail organized protests and marches, a telling lesson for Americans given the fact that cybersecurity guru Senator Joseph Lieberman openly admitted that the goal of the new kill switch in the U.S. was to mimic the Chinese system of Internet censorship.

“Right now China, the government, can disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here too,” Lieberman told CNN’s Candy Crowley last year.

However, China’s “war” is not against foreign terrorists or hackers, it’s against people who dare to use the Internet to express dissent against government atrocities or corruption. China’s system of Internet policing is about crushing freedom of speech during times of political upheaval and has nothing to do with legitimate security concerns. By Alex Jones at infowars .com

Lawsuit: Taco Bell 'meat' not technically meat

(www.Borganic.org) Many people have heard the rumors and jokes about fast food chains not actually using real meat in their products. But a new class-action lawsuit, filed by the Montgomery, Ala.-based law firm Beasley Allen on behalf of a California woman, accuses fast food chain Taco Bell of deceitfully calling its taco filling "beef" when less than 40 percent of it is actually composed of real beef.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines meat as simply "flesh of animals," and even allows for products called "meat" to contain as little as 40 percent meat. But Taco Bell's "meat" filling only contains about 35 percent ground beef, with the rest composed of various fillers, additives, and extenders, alleges the suit.

The official Taco Bell website explains that its ground beef contains beef, followed by a "seasoning" mixture composed of things like "isolated oat product" and silicon dioxide, an anti-caking agent. The ingredient list even contains soybean oil, which is described as an "anti-dusting agent."

Taco Bell has issued a statement countering the suit, insisting that it "prides itself on serving high quality Mexican inspired food with great value." The company vehemently denies that its advertising is "misleading in any way" and indicated that it intends to "vigorously defend the suit."

And a recently-amended response to the suit, issued by Taco Bell President and Chief Concept Officer Greg Creed, goes even further, explaining that the company plans to take offensive action as well.

"Unfortunately, the lawyers in this case elected to sue first and ask questions later -- and got their 'facts' absolutely wrong," alleges Creed. "We plan to take legal action for the false statements being made about our food."

But facts are facts. If Taco Bell's meat filling contains less than 40 percent meat, than it cannot legally be called meat. And instead of seeking monetary compensation, the goal of the lawsuit is to simply require Taco Bell to be honest with its customers about what they are eating.

Use licorice root to treat adrenal fatigue

(www.Borganic.org) Licorice root is a natural herb used by many holistic health practitioners for various health and wellness needs, including the treatment of adrenal fatigue. In fact, many herbalists recommend licorice root to boost adrenal health.

The adrenal glands are responsible for releasing hormones in response to physical, emotional, or even chemically-induced stress. Stress, in turn, often causes adrenal fatigue and stamina issues. Licorice root has been shown to boost energy levels as well as to increase endurance by regulating the production of hormones in the adrenal glands.

Popular since ancient times, licorice root is still the second most-often prescribed herb in Chinese medicine. In today's society, fatigue can be brought on by many things such as fear of losing one's job, relationship issues, lack of sleep, or pregnancy. Such stressors cause the adrenal glands to produce adrenaline, cortisol, and other hormones. If the stress isn't relieved, these hormones can build up, resulting in high blood pressure and adrenal exhaustion. All of this can cause fatigue of varying levels.

Brewing and consuming one cup of licorice tea each day can restore proper adrenal function, allowing a stress-affected person to feel more energetic and better able to cope with stressful situations. Prepare the tea using dried or powdered licorice root, steeping one teaspoonful in one cup of boiling water for three to five minutes. Licorice root is strongly flavored, so adding a small piece of cinnamon stick, a drizzle of honey, or a teaspoon of peppermint leaves can temper the taste. Licorice root can also be taken in tablet or capsule form. Ground licorice root can also be used in cooking and baking.

There is some evidence to suggest that high doses of licorice root or extended use of it could cause serious side effects such as water retention, high blood pressure or headaches. Anyone who suffers from high blood pressure, diabetes or migraines should avoid licorice. Also, while taking licorice root, plenty of potassium-rich foods should be consumed. Some examples include bananas or avocados.

In general, low or occasional use of licorice root is considered by many to be a beneficial treatment for adrenal gland issues. It is a natural and well-established herb with a long history of successful use.

Ten new ways to use vinegar around the home

(www.Borganic.org) Vinegar has been used in kitchen recipes for hundreds of years, but it's valuable for more than cooking. It's a natural disinfectant, a cleanser, and a health supplement as well. Here are ten new ways to use vinegar around the house:

1. It makes glass sparkle. White vinegar added to water makes a wonderful cleaning agent for windows. It will even remove mildew that builds up outside, making it a perfect cleanser for greenhouses and garage windows.

2. With its natural antiseptic qualities, it is a safe kitchen cleaner. A small amount mixed with water can disinfect counters, the refrigerator, and stove top. The front of the dishwasher, the oven door and window, the sink and faucets are areas that benefit from a quick wipe down with a vinegar and water mixture.

3. The natural anti-bacterial properties of vinegar can be used on minor cuts and bruises. Wrapping a bruise in brown paper that has been soaked with vinegar was a method of drawing out bruising since medieval times, and is being rediscovered today.

4. Vinegar can be used to soothe some symptoms of the common cold. Added to a mixture of honey and lemon juice, organic vinegar can be used as a natural cough controller.

5. Vinegar is a natural weed killer when poured undiluted in driveway and sidewalk cracks. It can also keep ants out of the house when sprayed across door jambs and window sills.

6. Raccoons and rabbits will stay out of the garden when vinegar is there. Cotton balls can be soaked in vinegar and then placed in small plastic containers with holes punched in the tops. The scent will even keep cats away from your flower beds. But care should be taken not to spill vinegar on grass or garden plants as it can be harmful to them.

7. And on the other hand, some plants appreciate the acidic value of vinegar. Azaleas in particular will flourish when two tablespoons of vinegar are added to a quart of water and poured around the base of the plants.

8. Outdoor fixtures like water faucets and exposed pipes can be cleaned with diluted vinegar. The casing for the air conditioning unit and pool pump can also benefit from a quick shower with a vinegar and water mixture.

9. Vinegar offers many health benefits. Added to a glass of water with honey first thing in the morning, organic apple cider vinegar has been shown to lower bad cholesterol and control blood sugar. It can be added to fruit juice or to salad dressings as well.

10. Vinegar makes a safe vegetable and fruit wash. One tablespoon of white vinegar in a quart of water can be sprayed on apples, cucumbers, and other foods. Rinsed with water, they are then clean and tasty.

Almost every kitchen contains a bottle of vinegar. Inexpensive and safe, it has many more uses than simple salad dressings.

10,000 cattle in Vietnam mysteriously die from cold weather

(www.Borganic.org) Thousands of cattle recently turned up dead in various Vietnamese provinces, reportedly due to the long cold spell that has hit the area in recent weeks. Officials from the Veterinary Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) had allegedly been working with local cities and provinces to help keep animals fed and warm once reports emerged of them dying, but such efforts largely failed as thousands more continued to die across the country.

According to reports, the province of Cao Bang experienced the worst losses with nearly 2,000 cattle deaths, followed by Lang Son with 1,380 and Son Law with 1,300, all supposedly due to cold weather. However, no specific scientific testing results were revealed proving that the deaths were truly caused by the cold weather, including simple pieces of evidence like thermostat readings or autopsy reports.

In many other parts of the world, farmers raising cattle have done so in much worse cold conditions than those allegedly experienced in Vietnam, which raises questions about what is truly causing these deaths. North Dakota, for instance, experiences temperatures as low as -60 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter, but animals somehow survive this type of weather year after year.

The Vietnamese cattle deaths follow a trail of other mysterious animals deaths that all began occurring right around the start of 2011. Many of those deaths remain unexplained, while others have been attributed to strange causes like winter storms and even drunkenness. Yet few, if any, of these death cases have been conclusively explained with actual scientific evidence.

Food companies caught faking blueberries with artificial colors

(www.Borganic.org) A Food Investigations mini-documentary released today exposes the "blueberry deception" in name-brand cereals, bagels, breads and bars. As revealed in the investigative video (www.FoodInvestigations.com), big-name food companies that offer blueberry cereals, muffins, pastries and bars have been caught "faking" the blueberries by creating them out of artificial colors, partially-hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

This investigation was conducted by award-winning investigative journalist Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, as part of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org), which provides nutrition grants for children's education programs around the world. The non-profit "blueberry deception" video can be viewed in its entirety at www.FoodInvestigations.com

Total cereal called "Total fraud"

Named in the video are Kellogg's, Target, Betty Crocker, General Mills and other food companies that use artificial colors to create the illusion of real blueberries in their products. One General Mills cereal singled out in the mini-documentary is called Total Blueberry Pomegranate Cereal. But a Consumer Wellness Center investigation reveals that this cereal contains neither blueberries nor pomegranates.

Source: General Mills website nutrition facts label:
http://www.naturalnews.com/images/T...

The cereal does, however, contain an astonishing 8 different sweeteners: Sugar, Corn Syrup, Barley Malt Extract, Brown Sugar Syrup, Malt Syrup, Sucralose, Molasses and Honey. The front label of the Total cereal box claims "100% Nutrition."

After investigating the real ingredients of Total cereal, Mike Adams called the product a "total fraud." He added, "It's clear to me that General Mills is deceptively marketing Total Blueberry Pomegranate cereal by trying to deceive consumers into believing it contains both blueberries and pomegranates -- two foods that are gaining a reputation as healthy ingredients in the minds of consumers."

"If consumers don't read the ingredients label, they may be easily misled into believing they are purchasing a cereal containing health-enhancing blueberries and pomegranates, when in reality they are buying sugared-up grains promoted with shamelessly deceptive marketing," said Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, who researched, scripted and narrated the Food Investigations episode.

General Mills, however, isn't the only big-name food company called out in the shocking video documentary. Several other companies are also exposed in the mini-documentary available for viewing at www.FoodInvestigations.com

How to avoid fake blueberries in food products

As explained in the video, consumers can avoid being deceived by food companies by following these three simple steps:

#1) Read the ingredients labels and look for artificial colors such as Red #40, Blue #1 and Blue #2. They are usually found near the end of the ingredients list.

#2) Don't buy foods made with artificial colors because the purpose of those colors is to cosmetically alter the appearance of those foods to make them appear more visually stimulating in order to "trick" or influence the consumer's purchasing decisions. When eating blueberry-colored cereals or pastries, many consumers actually believe they're eating real blueberries, even though no blueberries whatsoever may be used in the making of the product.

#3) Don't let your kids eat foods with artificial colors. At least one artificial color has been linked to symptoms of ADHD. Artificial colors are derived from coal tars and several colors have been banned in the past few decades due to human health hazards.

Furthermore, you can refuse to buy products from companies that use artificial colors. These include all the major cereal companies and mainstream food producers.

Artificial colors are also widely used in processed meats where the ingredient known as "sodium nitrite" is actually a red color fixer that gives dead, putrid-looking meat a fresh red appearance. Sodium nitrite, which is found in nearly all mainstream hot dogs, lunch meats, ham products, bacon, sausage and jerky products, is linked to alarming increases in risks of pancreatic cancer, color cancer and even brain tumors in children. (http://www.naturalnews.com/sodium_n...)

Real blueberries are great for you!

Adams believes it is important to emphasize that real blueberries are very good for human health. "Real blueberries offer a powerhouse of health-enhancing nutrition. They protect arteries, health lower blood pressure and provide an assortment of natural antioxidants to protect the eyes, brain and nervous system," Adams says.

Blueberries are also known to help prevent cancer, boost memory and even help reduce belly fat (http://www.naturalnews.com/blueberr...).

Join the online protest against General Mills

General Mills is not an evil company, at least not in the sense of "Monsanto evil." Although they made a huge mistake with their misleading Total Blueberry Pomegranate cereal, they do provide several healthy brands such as Cascadian Farm and Muir Glen. They also bought Larabar a year or two ago, and that's a decent food bar (although it's still not organic).

We want to help educate General Mills to the fact that customers are smarter than they think. We are paying attention, and we will boycott General Mills when they decide to treat us like consumer morons.

Join us in contacting General Mills and urging them to stop their deceptive marketing practices that deceive consumers about what's really inside the box.

Congressman uses Tucson massacre to demand preferential treatment by TSA

(www.Borganic.org) Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) wasted no time trying to take advantage of the Tucson massacre for his own personal benefit. Not long after the tragic shootings took place, Clyburn told "Fox News Sunday" that because of the shooting spree, members of Congress should be given special treatment by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) when flying.

"I really believe that this is the place where we feel the most ill at ease, is going through airports," he said. "We've had some incidents where TSA authorities think that Congresspeople should be treated like everybody else. Well, the fact of the matter is, we are held to a higher standard in so many other areas, and I think we need to take a hard look at exactly how the TSA interact with members of Congress."

Clyburn did not, however, offer any sort of rationale as to why the shootings should prompt special treatment for Congressmen at airports. The incident has absolutely nothing to do with airport security requirements, so it is unclear how the two are related in his mind. Nevertheless, Clyburn stood his ground, even demanding that the House "beef up the funding" so individual Congressmen can install private security forces at their own homes. According to reports, Clyburn has already taken such action at his own home.

But not everyone in Congress agrees with Clyburn's positions. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), for instance, expressed serious concern over such proposals.

"I'm concerned about putting up more walls between myself and the people that I represent," she told Fox. "I want to make sure that we're looking at it, that we're making an appropriate response, that we as members are being smart in our interactions."

Top ten violence-inducing prescription drugs

(www.Borganic.org) The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) recently published a study in the journal PLoS One highlighting the worst prescription drug offenders that cause patients to become violent. Among the top-ten most dangerous are the antidepressants Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), Paxil (paroxetine) and Prozac (fluoxetine).

Concerns about the extreme negative side effects of many popular antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs have been on the rise, as these drugs not only cause severe health problems to users, but also pose a significant threat to society. The ISMP report indicates that, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System, many popular drugs are linked even to homicides.

Most of the drugs in the top ten most dangerous are antidepressants, but also included are an insomnia medication, an attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drug, a malaria drug and an anti-smoking medication.

As reported in Time, the top ten list is as follows:

10. Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) – An antidepressant that affects serotonin and noradrenaline. The drug is 7.9 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

9. Venlafaxine (Effexor) – An antidepressant that treats anxiety disorders. The drug is 8.3 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

8. Fluvoxamine (Luvox) – A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drug that is 8.4 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

7. Triazolam (Halcion) – A benzodiazepine drug for insomnia that is 8.7 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

6. Atomoxetine (Strattera) – An ADHD drug that is 9 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

5. Mefoquine (Lariam) – A malaria drug that is 9.5 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

4. Amphetamines – This general class of ADHD drug is 9.6 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

3. Paroxetine (Paxil) – An SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.3 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs. It is also linked to severe withdrawal symptoms and birth defects.

2. Fluoxetine (Prozac) – A popular SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.9 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

1. Varenicline (Chantix) – An anti-smoking drug that is a shocking 18 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

Republicans to strike 'civil liberties' and 'civil rights' from subcommittee

(www.Borganic.org) In an odd demonstration of seemingly pointless controversy, the new Republican House majority has announced its intention to strike the words "civil rights" and "civil liberties" from the name, "Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties." Instead, the new committee will simply be called the "Constitution Subcommittee", an act that some Democrats say demonstrates the new House's true colors.

"Once again, the new Republican majority has shown that it isn't quite as committed to the Constitution as its recent lofty rhetoric would indicate," explained Rep Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), chairman of the committee since 2007, to reporters. "It has yet again shown its contempt for key portions of the document -- the areas of civil rights and civil liberties -- by banishing these words from the title of the Constitution Subcommittee."

Nadler also stated that after reading selective portions of the U.S. Constitution on the House floor -- which estimates say cost taxpayers over $1 million -- the House ironically permitted Reps. Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA) to violate the Constitution by casting votes before being officially sworn-in. The two were allegedly not present at the official swearing-in ceremony because they were at the Capitol Visitors Center.

On top of all this, Congressman Steve King (R-IA) introduced a controversial new House bill pertaining to birth right citizenship that some say is unconstitutional by nature because it aims to subvert the 14th Amendment's Citizenship Clause. All of these actions are indicative of a total disregard for the Constitution, despite pro-Constitution rhetoric, insists Nadler.

Laura Murphy, Director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Washington Legislative Office, is also quoted in a Raw Story article pointing out the irony of the new Congress's outspoken support for the Constitution before getting elected, and their current unconstitutional actions.

California delivers on toxic strawberries

(www.Borganic.org) In a time of intense propaganda about food safety, California recently approved the use of a chemical regularly used to create cancer in lab animals for use on strawberries that will be shipped around the world. The chemical is methyl iodide and some scientists call it the most dangerous chemical known to man. Scientists use protective gear when using it in the lab because of the cancer risk and the chemical's easy ability to damage our DNA. Of course, damaged DNA leads to problems for the holder of that DNA, and for all future generations that inherit it too. The chemical is also known to cause brain and reproductive damage, so it's a move that California has made to ensure strawberries will be about as unsafe as possible.

It's also a move that calls into question what exactly food safety is all about. In a lot of minds, having produce that isn't grown in a toxic soup of poisons would be a very logical first step. Getting rid of factory farms that improperly feed and drug the animals, pollute the air and water, and turn out diseased animals would be another logical step. Instead, the government supports these activities and allows even more toxic chemicals into our food supply, like methyl iodide - in spite of consumer and scientific community protest.

Scientists have assured us that using methyl iodide on strawberries will mean it will end up in California's groundwater. And groundwater makes up over 30 percent of the water delivered to California homes. California water already has numerous poisons in it and even if people drink purified water, it's common to absorb about a gallon of water with each shower.

California regulators have failed to look at what this will do to the future of California and California's children. In years to come, it's unlikely property values will maintain, when even more of the population is developing cancer due to this cancer-causing chemical being pumped into homes as drinking water. Just ask residents of Pompton Lakes, New Jersey. It's a DuPont factory town with poisoned groundwater and an uncanny number of residents with cancer - and they're finding it's really hard to sell their homes. http://www.naturalnews.com/027818_D...

Some Native Americans live by the principle of seven generations. This means they look at how their actions today affect the population seven generations down the line. Today, lawmakers often have trouble looking even one generation down the line. If they did, decisions like this one to use poisons in the food supply would never be made.

It's a sad reflection of the state of consciousness of legislators and 700 California strawberry farmers that would just as soon poison the population, as try something different. A process called soil solarization has been shown to be just as effective in improving crop yield and controlling pests as the use of dangerous chemicals like methyl iodide. And soil solarization only involves covering the fields with plastic tarps for a few weeks before planting to heat the soils. The heating process effectively destroys many pathogens and it also releases beneficial nutrients from the soil. Solarization is also less expensive for farmers than chemical treatments, which is a bonus, but when it comes down to whether or not to poison the Earth and population, cost shouldn't be the dominate factor.

If strawberries are grown without toxic chemicals, they're very healthy foods. They're known to protect our cells and heart and they have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties too. Strawberries are actually the most popular berry fruit in the world - and ninety percent of the strawberries eaten in the U.S. are grown in California.

AZ gunman was under mind control

(www.borganic.org)

A full scale demonization campaign against conservatives, free speech and the Second Amendment on behalf of Democrats and the establishment media in the wake of Saturday’s shootings has sensationally backfired after it emerged that gunman Jared Lee Loughner was a left-wing, pot-smoking liberal who was into dressing like the grim reaper and dabbling in the occult.

In their fervor to tear down the First and Second Amendments, Democrats and their allies in the corporate media hastily characterized Loughner as an anti-government right-winger in their rush to link him to the Tea Party and Sarah Palin, a connection that is still being invoked as Dems seek to rush through gun control legislation as well as a bill that could make criticism of government a form of hate speech.

However, precisely as Alex Jones forecast on his show last night, it has emerged this morning that Loughner is a devil-worshipper wannabe who idolized fake human skulls and dressed up like the grim reaper.

How often have you witnessed a “tear partier,” an anti-government activist or a conservative engage in any of the following behaviors, all of which are confirmed to have been conducted by Loughner. (1) (2) (3) (4)

- Burning the American flag
- Being a “left-winger” and a “liberal”
- Smoking pot
- Having long hair
- Dressing up as the grim reaper
- Dabbling in the occult by worshipping a replica of a human skull
- Expressing the desire to be a woman
- Describing Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto as a favorite book

Does it sound like Jared Lee Loughner was a right-wing conservative, as the liberal smear machine is attempting to claim?

Despite the fact that Loughner’s former classmate described him as “quite liberal” and “left wing,” the New York Times, Washington Post, along with a host of statist blogs like Huffington Post and the Daily Kos, were beating the drum for so-called right-wingers (opponents of Obamacare or big government) to be politically silenced in the name of “toning down the rhetoric”.

In reality, Loughner’s political views were all over the map, sharing characteristics of conservatism, liberalism and libertarianism. He was a fundamentally disturbed and deranged individual, which was the main reason for the carnage he become embroiled in, not because he was a tea partier influenced by the resistance against big government, as the establishment is now trying to claim.

The haste with which the attack machine had manufactured Loughner’s persona before his name was even known as a dangerous right-winger proves that the establishment had already embarked on a sickening plan to exploit the tragedy mere minutes after news of the shootings broke.

We don’t even have a clear motive for why Loughner apparently targeted Congressman Giffords. Indeed, since both Giffords and federal judge John Roll were both very conservative in their policies towards gun control and immigration, how do we know that Loughner’s anger wasn’t rooted in leftist rage?

Another key facet to this story is the fact that Loughner’s mental instability was well known on his campus, and yet “College authorities ignored repeated warnings that the drug-taking 22-year-old was a potential danger, a former teacher claimed last night.”

Stock up with Fresh Food that lasts with eFoodsDirect

Despite the fact that Loughner’s profile is now confirmed as a black-clad, occult-dabbling, pot smoking unstable loner, in a similar mould to Columbine killers Harrison and Klebold, the establishment is still blaming so-called right-wing radio and talk show hosts for the tragedy and demanding that Americans “tone down their rhetoric,’ which is a mere euphemism for a brazen attempt to stifle criticism of the state altogether.

Speaking to Fox News, the father of the 9-year-old girl killed as a result of Loughner’s rampage commendably labeled the tragic events a “random act” and said that the death of his daughter should not be exploited to revoke freedoms.

Speaking on the subject of how travel became a nightmare after 9/11, John Green said, “We don’t need any more restrictions on our society,” as a consequence of the shootings, and said that tragic events such as those that led to the murder of his daughter was the price Americans have to pay for freedom.

Liberal Smear Machine Backfires | top search news

(www.borganic.org) In the aftermath of the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, the mainstream media is now desperately trying to blame the attack on “anti-government” sentiment. USA Today ran a tabloid journalism piece that selectively cherry-picked certain phrases used by Jared Lee Loughner in order to create the impression that he was some sort of anti-government nut. Loughner was actually a mentally deranged individual who ranted about everything from “grammar” to imaginary birds (http://www.naturalnews.com/030953_G…). His state of mind, as evidenced from his YouTube posts, seems incapable of holding any traditionally-recognized political philosophy.

The Associated Press, meanwhile, actually blamed the “political climate” for the shooting, saying, “The nation’s caustic political climate has become a suspect of sorts in the rampage that left six dead and a lawmaker critically injured in Arizona.” The implication from these kinds of stories is that if you criticize the government, you therefore promote violence.

That is, of course, a silly idea, especially considering the fact that the government nearly always uses the threat of violence against its own citizens to get what it wants. To use the example of Obamacare, the law itself says that if citizens don’t buy health insurance, the U.S. government will essentially extract a large sum of money from you by force through the use of IRS agents and, if necessary, the government seizure of your assets.

On the health care front, remember it was the U.S. government that committed medical violence against children by forcing teens with cancer to undergo chemotherapy against their will (http://www.naturalnews.com/019617.html). Various local governments also routinely threaten vegan parents with having their children taken away by Child Protective Services if they don’t start feeding their children processed factory foods such as hamburgers.

The FDA, for its part, routinely sends extremely threatening letters to natural product companies (cherry growers, walnut growers, green tea importers, etc.) that contain extremely threatening language that imply company executives will be “criminally prosecuted” by the FDA, or have their assets seized, or even have their businesses shut down if they don’t agree to admit to crimes they never even committed (selling “unapproved drugs” which are really just cherries). (http://www.naturalnews.com/019366.html)

No one is surprised when the government uses the threat of violence to get what it wants these days. Today, the government actually commits felony crimes against the American people on a daily basis! It’s called the “enhanced pat-down” by the TSA. If you did the exact same thing to another person at your office, you would be arrested as a “violent criminal” and charged with sexual assault.

GM corn releases insecticide chemicals that are now polluting rivers and streams

(www.borganic.org) Corn plants genetically modified (GM) to produce pesticides in their tissues are contaminating water supplies across the US Midwest, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

The study was conducted on corn engineered to carry a gene from the Bacillus thuriengensis (Bt) bacteria that produces an insecticidal protein, Cry1Ab. The researchers tested 217 Indiana streams for traces of Cry1Ab, and pesticide the chemical in 13 percent of them. Every contaminated stream was within 500 meters (1,600 feet) of a corn field.

In the Midwestern "Corn Belt" states of Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, 90 percent of streams and rivers are within 500 meters of a corn field. This amounts to 159,000 miles worth of waterways at risk from Bt corn contamination.

Eighty-six percent of the streams tested in the study contained corn cobs, husks, leaves or stalks.

"Our research adds to the growing body of evidence that corn crop byproducts can be dispersed throughout a stream network, and that the compounds associated with genetically modified crops, such as insecticidal proteins, can enter nearby water bodies," said researcher Emma Rosi-Marshall.

Although this study is among the first to show that the tissues of GM crops can harm the environment after the plant has died, other dangers of GM agriculture have already been well established.

"Genes from genetically modified plants have already been shown to be capable of escaping into the environment and contaminating natural crops," write Michael Murray and Joseph Pizzorno in their book The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods.

"Manipulating genetic material changes the expression of proteins and antigens in foods, a situation that could lead to allergic reactions. ... Another concern is that some GM foods, such as GM corn, are being manipulated to resist synthetic pesticides. As a result, more of the pesticide is being used and humans' exposure to toxic pesticides is actually increasing while insects develop resistance to the pesticides' toxic effects."

CDC adjusts fluoride poisoning of America's water supply to a lower level

(www.Borganic.org) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) today issued a startling report that admits 2 in 5 children in America show signs of fluoride poisoning (streaking, spotting or pitting of teeth due to dental fluorosis). The agency concluded that fluoride levels need to be lowered in municipal water supplies, reducing fluoride to 0.7 milligrams per liter (the previous recommended upper limit was 1.2 milligrams per liter).

This ends over five decades of the U.S. government recommending up to 1.2 milligrams of fluoride in every liter of water. But even the new lower levels are still more than enough to cause serious harm to children, and when mothers make infant formula using fluoridated tap water, they inadvertently poison their infants with hundreds of times the level of fluoride that would normally be found in healthy human breast milk.

Fluoride is still a poison

It's so rare to find any agency of the federal government actually doing anything that even resembles a good decision these days that the CDC's decision deserves some level of kudos. Even though it doesn't end the destructive practice of poisoning the water supply with fluoride, it's a step in the right direction. But it doesn't go nearly far enough, say industry watchdogs.

"It' a good start that they've finally recognized that after 65 years they needed to lower the 'optimal' level of fluoride," Professor Paul Connett told NaturalNews. He's the executive director of the Fluoride Action Network (www.FluorideAlert.org), which is spearheading the fight against water fluoridation in the United States. "It should have happened years ago."

Connett goes on to explain why the CDC's decision doesn't go nearly far enough:

"The bad news is that the CDC and ADA are still trying to maintain that the only issue of concern is dental fluorosis [while] they are trying to ignore all the other health concerns. If they were really serious about reducing dental fluorosis, they would stop fluoridated water altogether. But short of that, if they were really serious, then the next best thing would be to warn parents in fluoridated communities not to use fluoridated tap water to make baby formula. That's the most practical thing to do."

It is unknown how many children in America and around the world have been poisoned by infant formula made with fluoridated tap water, but that number continues to grow each day that water fluoridation continues.

Is the announcement a P.R. stunt?

About the CDC's motives for this announcement, Connett characterizes it as a bit of a P.R. stunt:

"All that's happening here is really a P.R. exercise to make it look as if they are addressing the public's concerns without really doing anything substantial. [They] give the message that they're going to choose a level which would allow the water fluoridation program to continue. That's a travesty of science and another example where these Washington based agencies are more interested in protecting a policy than in protecting the health of the American people."

"They've completely ignored all the IQ studies and the notion that fluoride damages the brain," Connett explains.

Connett isn't the only one hoping to see the CDC ban fluoride outright. ABC News is reporting today that Dr Griffin Cole, a dentist in Austin, Texas, said, "I still don't think it's enough, honestly," he said. "I don't think there should be fluoride in the water at all."

"Ingesting fluoride in any form does nothing for your teeth," he said (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/fluori...). He also points out that dental fluorosis leads to costly (i.e. high-profit) dental work being needed to restore the patient's teeth. "When you see a case of somebody coming in with bad fluorosis, to restore those teeth you either have to crown them completely or at least do a veneer. So it's a very costly thing to fix."

That's sort of the whole point of fluoride, actually: To bring in repeat business to dental offices around the country. It's the same scam as mercury fillings which crack teeth and result in a steady stream of repeat business to repair the damage. Over half of today's practicing dentists have already stopped using mercury fillings ("silver fillings") due to the toxicity of mercury (http://www.naturalnews.com/030741_m...).

Both mercury and fluoride are founded in the corrupt dental industry which has, for over a hundred years, poisoned the American people in order to protect its business model of harming people in order to generate repeat business. The dental industry operates in almost precisely the same way as the pharmaceutical industry: If you keep people sick, they'll keep coming back for more "treatments."

Fluoride is dangerous to your health - here's why

Even though the CDC's decision still supports water fluoridation, it nevertheless sends a powerful message across the country that too much fluoride is dangerous for your health.

This should slap shut the mouths of at least some of the fluoride-pimping dentists and doctors who have been advocating this mass poisoning of our nation for the last several decades. But there's much more to this story that's not being reported anywhere else.

For one thing, do you know where fluoride comes from? It turns out that so-called "fluoride" is really fluorosilicic acid, a toxic waste byproduct of the phosphate mining industry. If it wasn't being dumped into the water supplies of major cities, it would have to be disposed as a hazardous toxic waste chemical under EPA rules.

See my fluoride CounterThink cartoon here: http://www.counterthink.com/Fluorid...

When the phosphate mining industry used to release fluoride byproducts directly into the atmosphere (from the fumes of the acidic slurry used to process phosphate rock), it caused the widespread death of cattle and crops. In order to protect local livestock from fluoride poisoning, wet scrubbers were installed at the phosphate mining processing sites in order to collect the toxic fluoride and prevent it from being released into the atmosphere.

Fluorosilicic acid (http://www.fluoridealert.org/pestic...) is derived from these wet scrubbers, then sold to cities and towns to have it dumped into the water supply. That's one reason why so-called "fluoride" is so toxic: It's not a naturally-occurring mineral! It's actually a toxic waste chemical that, if it were dumped into the water supply by a terrorist, would be called a Weapon of Mass Destruction. The act of dumping it into the water, from any rational perspective, must be considered an act of terrorism.

For the CDC to limit this act of terrorism to only 0.7 mg per liter rather than 1.2 mg per liter isn't exactly a huge victory. As Connett explains, it is actually an admission that the CDC supports the mass poisoning of the American people with a dangerous toxic chemical.

Take action to oppose fluoride in New York City and San Diego - NEW LINKS

If you live in San Diego, you may be subjected to water fluoride poisoning this year. Please use these new links that were just set up by the Fluoride Action Network:

Residents of San Diego use this link: http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/...

Non-Residents of San Diego use this link: http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/...

Also, if you live in NYC, or work in NYC or even live in the state of New York, please stay tuned to NaturalNews for upcoming action items on that front. A new bill is now slated to be introduced in New York City on January 18th that would eliminate water fluoridation throughout the city. We intend to garner grassroots support for that bill and thereby eliminate toxic fluoride from the NYC water supply.

After all, don't NYC citizens deserve clean water? Doesn't America? Doesn't the entire world?

By the way, the reason some dentists so vehemently support water fluoridation is because they know fluoridation brings them repeat business in the highly lucrative cosmetic dentistry industry. If fluoride is removed from the water supply, these dentists will lose out on one of their top sources of repeat business.

Interestingly, with today's report, the CDC has decided that "too much" fluoride is bad for you, but "a smaller amount of fluoride poison" is just fine for your health. Like I said, it's a step in the right direction, and the CDC deserves some credit for this decision, but until the fluoride poison is removed from ALL the water in America, children are still being harmed by fluoride. The CDC has a moral and regulatory responsibility to ban fluoride from being dumped into municipal water supplies.

Let us hope this agency will soon rise to this moral standard and take action to protect the health of the American people rather than protecting the financial interests of the morally repugnant (and highly corrupt) industry of conventional dentistry.

Aspartame exposed - GM Bacteria used to create deadly sweetener

(www.borganic.org)
The manufacturers of the most prevalent sweetener in the world have a secret, and it`s not a sweet one. Aspartame, an artificial sweetener found in thousands of products worldwide, has been found to be created using genetically modified (GM) bacteria. What`s even more shocking is how long this information has been known. A 1999 article by The Independent was the first to expose the abominable process in which aspartame was created. Ironically, the discovery was made around the same time as rich leaders around the globe met at the G8 Summit to discuss the safety of GM foods.

The 1999 investigation found that Monsanto, the largest biotech corporation in the world, often used GM bacteria to produce aspartame in their US production plants. The end result is a fusion between two of the largest health hazards to ever hit the food industry -- artificial sweeteners and an array of genetically altered organisms. Both have led to large-scale debate, with aspartame being the subject of multiple congressional hearings and scientific criticism. Scientists and health advocates are not the only ones to speak out against aspartame, however. The FDA received a flurry of complaints from consumers using NutraSweet, a product containing aspartame. Since 1992, the FDA has stopped documenting reports on the subject.

The process in which aspartame is created involves combining an amino acid known as phenylalanine with aspartic acid. First synthesized in 1965, aspartame requires bacteria for the sole purpose of producing phenylalanine. Monsanto discovered that through genetically altering this bacteria, phenylalanine could be created much more quickly. In the report by The Independent, Monsanto openly admitted that their mutated bacteria is a staple in the creation process of aspartame.

"We have two strains of bacteria - one is traditionally modified and one is genetically modified," said the source from Monsanto. "It's got a modified enzyme. It has one amino acid different."

Multiple studies have been conducted regarding genetic manipulation, with many grim conclusions. One study found that the more GM corn was fed to mice, the fewer babies they had. Another study, published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences, found that the organs that typically respond to chemical food poisoning were the first to encounter problems after subjects consumed GM foods. The same study also states that GM foods should not be commercialized.

"For the first time in the world, we've proven that GMO are neither sufficiently healthy nor proper to be commercialized. [...] Each time, for all three GMOs, the kidneys and liver, which are the main organs that react to a chemical food poisoning, had problems," indicated Gilles-Eric Seralini, an expert member of the Commission for Biotechnology Reevaluation.

Consumer groups are now curious as to whether or not other products secretly contain genetically modified ingredients. Due to the fact that the finished product`s DNA does not change when using genetically modified bacteria, it is hard to know for sure. With the FDA ruling against the labeling of GM salmon, it is becoming more of a challenge to determine whether or not a product contains GM ingredients. Consumers are voicing their opposition for GM ingredients going incognito, with the largest growing retail brand being GMO-free products.

"The public wants to know and the public has a right to know," said Marion Nestle, a professor in the Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health Department at New York University.

Unveiling the secret process in which aspartame is created acts as yet another reminder to stay away from artificial sweeteners, and one should choose natural alternatives such as palm sugar, xylitol, or stevia.

GMO Monsanto connected to at least 200,000 suicides in India throughout past decade

(www.borganic.org)
When India's seed economy was forced by the World Bank to become globalized in the late 1990s, economic conditions within the nation's agricultural sector almost immediately took a nosedive for the worst. Much of the common Indian seed stock turned from saveable heirloom varieties to patented, genetically-modified (GM) varieties that expire after a single use and require the application of expensive and cumbersome pesticides in order to grow, which plunged many Indian farmers into abject poverty. And nearly 25 years later, the devastating effects of this corporate takeover of Indian agriculture has resulted in countless suicides, 200,000 of which have occurred just in the past ten years.

According to a recent report in the U.K. Independent, many Indian farmers have lost their farms and land over the past several decades. One of the primary causes is failed investments by farmers that banked heavily on the success of newly-introduced GM crops. Multinational biotechnology giants like Monsanto and Syngenta promised farmers that GM crops would bring incredible yields at lower costs, and save the country from poverty. But in reality, many of the crops ended up failing, leaving millions of Indian farmers with absolutely nothing.

"One farmer every 30 minutes (commits suicide) in India now, and sometimes three in one family," explained Palagummi Sainath, an Indian journalist, to the U.K. Independent. Left with nowhere to turn and a complete loss of their livelihoods, many farmers are literally drinking their crop pesticides. And since many of these suicides go unreported or unnoticed, actual rates could be even higher than those reported.

Years of drought and poor agricultural policy are also to blame for the widespread failure of agriculture in many Indian regions, but it all appears directly connected to the introduction of GMs in the 1990s. The U.K. Independent report states that the Indian government removed cotton subsidies in 1997, which resulted in a significant profit loss for many cotton farmers. But during that same year, GM varieties of cotton were also introduced, which many attribute directly to the crop failures that left the agriculture sector largely in ruin.

"Every suicide can be linked to Monsanto," explained scientist Vandana Shiva to the U.K. Independent. After subsidies were lifted, the cost of cotton production rose dramatically, especially when GM cotton was introduced because it required the application of expensive pesticides and herbicides. Natural varieties of cotton, on the other hand, do not necessarily require chemical applications to grow and flourish. And since farmers can save and reuse natural seeds every year, all is not lost during years of poorer yields because farmers can often try again the next year.

But in the GM crop paradigm, the stakes are far higher. Farmers must borrow large sums of money to invest in GM technology. They do so based on promises that yields will increase and profits will soar. But when the promises fail to pan out and farmers are unable to keep paying for the expensive pesticides, they typically end up losing everything, including access to reusable heirloom seeds. So, many end up killing themselves because they literally have nothing left.

The introduction of GM agriculture in India shifted the agricultural economy from one of biodiversity to monoculture, which is hugely significant in India's agricultural failures. Rather than grow a variety of different heirloom crops that each respond differently to periodic changes in climate -- which Indian farmers have always done prior to the introduction of GM crops -- many farmers began to grow only one single GM variety. And when conditions turned out not to be favorable for that crop, both economically and in terms of climate conditions, disaster ensued. In fact, one statistic from a government report in India states that more than 90 percent of known suicide victims were in debt, which was largely brought about when farmers took the plunge into GM crops from their former methods.

The globalization of agriculture in general has dramatically increased poverty in India, as crop subsidies in other nations began to affect Indian agriculture, driving down crop profits. Indian farmers have lost billions of dollars over the years from having to compete in the global agricultural marketplace rather than grow their own biodiverse crops to feed their own people. Global powers have literally robbed India of its self-reliance and self-sustenance in the name of "ending poverty" by thrusting upon them a system of monopolized agriculture controlled and operated by companies like Monsanto. And unless India somehow secedes from the global system of corruption, conditions will only become increasingly worse for its people.
