UN “Peacekeeping” forces still committing atrocities in Haiti

Rather than protecting local civilians, United Nations “peacekeeping” forces in Haiti are behaving as ruthless predators that systematically prey on Haitians, raping and sexually abusing even children with impunity, according to a new report detailing the horrors. Instead of dealing with the ghastly and systemic abuses perpetrated under its latest decade-long occupation, UN military officials seek to cover it up and even retaliate against whistleblowers. On top of that, the global outfit’s “peace” armies have been spreading deadly diseases among the traumatized population — particularly cholera, which has killed almost 10,000 Haitians so far. All the while, the UN continues to avoid any semblance of accountability under the guise of “immunity.”

According to the report, when UN peacekeepers were not partying and enjoying themselves at the beach, partly at U.S. taxpayer expense, many of them were sexually exploiting children, trafficking drugs, hiring prostitutes, and more. “For less than $5, the Sri Lankan soldiers exploited the very population they were sent to safeguard,” wrote investigative journalist Kathie Klarreich. “They conveniently disregarded the trampled condition of the fence surrounding their military base so that Haitian boys and girls could crawl under and over it, which they did with great frequency. In their wake, they left behind condoms, which were noted by UN investigators when they finally cracked down on the security breach and the flagrant violation of UN policy.”

The UN, of course, knew full well what its “peace” troops were engaged in. Klarreich describes a team of UN investigators who investigated the UN’s Sri Lankan troops in Haiti and “found that transactional sex among the peacekeepers was rampant.” Over the years, Klarreich reported, “rotating peacekeepers from Sri Lanka gave the new recruits the SIM cards that held the names and numbers of those willing to engage in sex, including boys and girls just entering their teens.” Often they met in the UN military base, other times they raped children in UN vehicles, with fellow UN soldiers keeping a lookout from the UN’s observation tower, according to a UN investigator cited in Klarreich’s chilling investigation.

“Transactional sex with peacekeepers isn’t new, nor is sexual exploitation and abuse — S.E.A., in UN jargon,” Klarreich reported. “The first widespread exposure of the practice, including exploitation of children, pornography, trafficking and sexual assault, occurred in the early 1990s. Then there was the sex-trafficking in Bosnia, Herzegovina and Kosovo.” Over the decades, The New American and other sources have also documented myriad abuses and horrors — murder, mass rape, pedophilia, human trafficking, systematic sexual exploitation of children, deadly attacks on protestors, and more — by UN forces around the world.

The report also highlights the grotesque sexual abuse of a mentally handicapped young boy — starting when he was just eight years old and lasting for five years — by UN troops from Pakistan. When it was reported to the Pakistani UN commander, rather than reporting it to the UN mission, the commander “decided to handle it himself.” Apparently the UN officer was hoping the case would disappear, “since he was also abusing the boy,” Klarreich reported. The UN force also reportedly hired a kidnapper to hide their victim from investigators.  …

Orwellian Irony: People Who Distrust the State Said to be “Faith Based”

I know I shouldn’t be bothering with old propaganda given the current onslaught, but it’s still good for a laugh.   The article is “Americans Have Little Faith In Scientists, Science Journalists: Poll” at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/21/faith-in-scientists_n_4481487.html?utm_hp_ref=tw

Predictably, the author makes no distinction between “tobacco science” which is so pervasive today, and real science.  Her litmus test for scientific literacy seems to be whether one believes what one is told by the “authorities”, and she laments the breakdown of public trust in them.     But the truth is that the widespread acceptance of the 9/11 hoax is the most depressing illustration of the scientific illiteracy of the american people and the willingness of the “authorities” to lie to their faces.   The top rated reader comment is positively orwellian:

The people that trust in science are the educated people. The less educated are usually the faith based class. The numbers really don’t shock me at all. It takes a well educated mind to understand what really happens in our universe, not a imaginary man floating in the clouds.

The writer’s indoctrination and faith in the religion of statism is unshakable and positively touching.   Why can’t we all just believe whatever we’re told?  Isn’t there safety in numbers?  Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

How do you even begin to get through to such people?   This is mind control.

Junk Food Eugenics: More Deadly than War, Famine, Genocide

Food in the end, in our tradition, is something holy. It’s not about nutrients and calories. It’s about sharing. It’s about honesty. It’s about identity. ~ Louise Fresco

You may already know that junk food is bad for your health, but you may not realize how bad it can be. new study from the School of Medical Sciences at Australia’s University of New South Wales points to profound brain changes that junk food causes, making a junk food habit “more deadly than war, famine, and genocide”.

Say what? Yep, the food war is real, and though the UNSW study was conducted on rats, the brain changes observed matter to us humans. As mammals we share similar brain functioning in the orbitofrontal cortex, the part of our gray matter responsible for sensing and evaluating the pleasurable aspects of food.

Makers of junk food know it is highly addictive, but the UNSW study proves unequivocally that junk food alters behavior by causing near-permanent changes in the brain’s reward circuiting, an alteration that can trigger obesity.

The study abstract concluded:

“We observed that rats fed a cafeteria diet for 2 weeks showed impaired sensory-specific satiety following consumption of a high calorie solution. The deficit in expression of sensory-specific satiety was also present 1 week following the withdrawal of cafeteria foods. Thus, exposure to obesogenic diets may impact upon neurocircuitry involved in motivated control of behavior.”

While mammals developed a natural trigger over our evolutionary history which prevents us from over-eating, a phenomenon termed “sensory-specific satiety,” the consumption of junk food overrides this natural ‘kill’ switch that allows us to regulate the calories we consume.

Junk food consumption also causes mitochondrial dysfunction and tissue inflammation, which leads to a host of other diseases. Perhaps most troubling, though, is that these fake foods also mess with our internal motivation and reward system – which causes us to seek more nutrition-less junk. It’s like programming a time bomb and just waiting for it to blow. …

Need I point out that fast food is especially consumed by people who don’t have the time to prepare real food at home (i.e. the working poor)?   “Organic food” used to be called just “food”.   Now through the miracle of marketing and the steady erosion of the middle class, it’s considered a luxury.

As Republicans prepare to cut billions of dollars from food stamps, a Bay Area activist has stirred a hornet’s nest on the left by questioning how much the program ends up benefiting corporations that peddle soda, candy and other junk food to low-income people.

Michele Simon, a public health expert in Oakland who has battled food marketing to children, issued a report last month, “Food Stamps: Follow the Money,” that called the program the “largest, most overlooked corporate subsidy in the farm bill.”

Simon opposes cuts to food stamps, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP and renamed CalFresh in California. But she said the best defense is to make sure the program is doing its best to help the poor, rather than Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Mars and General Mills.

“Nutrition shouldn’t just mean not going hungry,” Simon said. “It should mean actually feeding people nutritious food.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture does not collect data on what people buy with food stamps. Tobacco, alcohol, pet food and vitamins are banned, but candy, soda and ice cream are allowed….

Congressional Hearing Showcases Boldfaced Lies About Vaccines

Why do so many CDC “officials” sport military uniforms? Who is in charge of the CDC?

Exclusive: This marathon report is anchored by a Feb 2014 Senate Hearing on vaccines, featuring Senator Elizabeth Warren and Dr. Anne Schuchat, the director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. They use this national platform to continue the hoax that vaccines are perfectly safe and effective.

Infowars.com Nightly News director Rob Dew methodically covers the evidence that vaccines are in fact dangerous, in addition to the fact the vaccine manufacturers are not liable for their toxic products and as a result you will never see credible, impartial studies.

Those who do look at vaccines are attacked and demonized by the media and big pharma.

Rob also examines why autism saw an explosion in the late 80s, and concludes the report with a must-read article from retired neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock and an amazing quote from one of the first anti-vaxxers, Mahatma Ghandi. This report has a lot of amazing information, please check out the links below.

Eugenical Psychiatry Increasingly Worried About Healthy Food Movement

In an attempt to curb the mass rush for food change and reform, psychiatry has green lighted a public relations push to spread awareness about their new buzzword “orthorexia nervosa,” defined as “a pathological obsession for biologically pure and healthy nutrition.” In other words, experts are saying that our demand for nutrient-dense, healthful food is a mental disorder that must be treated.

CNN, Fast Company, Popular Science, and other top outlets have all began to trumpet the talking points on cue relatively recently:

“Orthorexia nervosa is a label designated to those who are concerned about eating healthy. Characterized by disordered eating fueled by a desire for “clean” or “healthy” foods, those diagnosed with the condition are overly pre-occupied with the nutritional makeup of what they eat”.

In short, if you turn your back on low quality, corporate food containing known cancer causing toxic additives and a rich history of dishonesty rooted in a continuous “profits over people” modus operandi, then you may suffer from a mental illness. The cherry on top is that if you have the pseudo-science labeled disorder of orthorexia nervosa, you will be prescribed known toxic, pharmaceutical drugs from some of the same conglomerate corporations that you are trying to avoid by eating healthy in the first place. ….

American Eugenical Medicine is 3rd Leading Cause of Death

America’s Healthcare System is the Third Leading Cause of Death

Starfield, B. (2000, July 26). Is US health really the best in the world? Journal of the American Medical Association, 284(4), 483-485.

Summary by Kah Ying Choo

This Journal of the American Medical Association article illuminates the failure of the U.S. medical system in providing decent medical care for Americans.

In spite of the rising health care costs that provide the illusion of improving health care, the American people do not enjoy good health, compared with their counterparts in the industrialized nations. Among thirteen countries including Japan, Sweden, France and Canada, the U.S. was ranked 12th, based on the measurement of 16 health indicators such as life expectancy, low-birth-weight averages and infant mortality. In another comparison reported by the World Health Organization that used a different set of health indicators, the U.S. also fared poorly with a ranking of 15 among 25 industrialized nations.

Although many people attribute poor health to the bad habits of the American public, Starfield (2000) points out that the Americans do not lead an unhealthy lifestyle compared to their counterparts. For example, only 28 percent of the male population in the U.S. smoked, thus making it the third best nation in the category of smoking among the 13 industrialized nations. The U.S. population also achieved a high ranking (5th best) for alcohol consumption. In the category of men aged 50 to 70 years, the U.S. had the third lowest mean cholesterol concentrations among 13 industrialized nations. Therefore, the perception that the American public’s poor health is a result of their negative health habits is false.

Even more significantly, the medical system has played a large role in undermining the health of Americans. According to several research studies in the last decade, a total of 225,000 Americans per year have died as a result of their medical treatments:

• 12,000 deaths per year due to unnecessary surgery

• 7000 deaths per year due to medication errors in hospitals

• 20,000 deaths per year due to other errors in hospitals

• 80,000 deaths per year due to infections in hospitals

• 106,000 deaths per year due to negative effects of drugs

Thus, America’s healthcare-system-induced deaths are the third leading cause of the death in the U.S., after heart disease and cancer.

One of the key problems of the U.S. health system is that as many as 40 million people in the U.S. do not have access to healthcare. The social and economic inequalities that are an integral part of American society are mirrored in the inequality of access to the health care system. Essentially, families of low socioeconomic status are cut off from receiving a decent level of health care.

By citing these statistics, Starfield (2000) highlights the need to examine the type of health care provided to the U.S. population. The traditional medical paradigm that emphasizes the use of prescription medicine and medical treatment has not only failed to improve the health of Americans, but also led to the decline in the overall well-being of Americans. Starfield’s (2000) comparison of the medical systems of Japan and the U.S. captures the fundamental differences in the treatment approach. Unlike the U.S., Japan has the healthiest population among the industrialized nations. Instead of relying on sophisticated technology and professional personnel for medical treatment as in the U.S., Japan uses its technology solely for diagnostic purposes. Furthermore, in Japan, family members, rather than hospital staff, are involved in caring for the patients.

The success of the Japanese medical system testifies to the dire need for Americans to alter their philosophical approach towards health and treatment. In the blind reliance on drugs, surgery, technology and medical establishments, the American medical system has inflicted more harm than good on the U.S. population. Starfield’s (2000) article is invaluable in unveiling the catastrophic effects of the medical treatments provided to the American people. In order to improve the medical system, American policymakers and the medical establishment need to adopt a comprehensive approach and critically examine the failure of the richest country in the world to provide decent health care for its people. The reason that they have difficulty doing that is explained on the following page.
