Obama’s War on Africa Heats Up

Source:Ap

A US Army brigade will begin sending small teams into as many as 35 African nations early next year, part of an intensifying Pentagon effort to train countries to battle extremists and give the US a ready and trained force to dispatch to Africa if crises requiring the US military emerge.

The teams will be limited to training and equipping efforts, and will not be permitted to conduct military operations without specific, additional approvals from the secretary of defence.

The sharper focus on Africa by the US comes against a backdrop of widespread insurgent violence across North Africa, and as the African Union and other nations discuss military intervention in northern Mali.

The terror threat from Al Qaeda-linked groups in Africa has been growing steadily, particularly with the rise of the extremist Islamist sect Boko Haram in Nigeria. Officials also believe that the September 11 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, which killed the ambassador and three other Americans, may have been carried out by those who had ties to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.

This first-of-its-kind brigade assignment – involving teams from the 2nd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division – will target countries such as Libya, Sudan, Algeria and Niger, where Al Qaeda-linked groups have been active. It also will assist nations like Kenya and Uganda that have been battling Al Shabab militants on the front lines in Somalia. …

It must be a strange lifestyle to write such brazen propaganda, knowing that AQ functions as a branch of the US state department and in all likelihood these “advisors” will be teaching torture techniques and sowing terror among innocent people.  The propagandist has to assume the mindset of the targets at home to know what will work and how far to push the lie without losing credibility, all while knowing enough of the true agenda to construct the appropriate cover for it.  Professional liars.

Why Some People Will Never Wake Up

Forget about intentions and conspiracies, just look at the systemic consequences of a society-wide reduction in IQ, keeping in mind that the USA is becoming a huge “company town” where all businesses and resources are already being vacuumed up into The Monopoly.  The result is a further centralization of power into the corporate state as a wholesale reduction in initiative and creativity starve local solutions.  People who are dependent are controlled.  And the destruction of families and communities through circumcision, obstetrical abuse and the drug war complete a comprehensive approach to grassroots totalitarianism, orwell’s nightmare come true.

“Scientific societies are as yet in their infancy. . . . It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished. . . . Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. . . .”—-Bertrand Russell,1953

The MSM Doesn’t Really Care About School Shootings

Otherwise they’d be talking about the connection with psych drugs.

Mainstream media avoiding any mention of link between psychiatric drugs and violent shootings

Whether it’s because most members of the mainstream media are simply oblivious to the effects of psychotropic drugs, whether it’s a biased political agenda, laziness or a combination of all of those elements, you will be hard-pressed to find many journalists who dare to link the dangers of these medications to the growing number of horrific mass murders that have occurred with alarming frequency in recent years.

The most recent of these involved 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who killed his mother before traveling to the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., earlier this month to murder 20 Kindergarten children and six adults.

In the days following the shooting, initial exclusive reports from the New York Daily News said that Lanza went on his rampage when he learned he was about to be committed to a psychiatric institution by his mother. According to the report, a “bar pal” who did not want to be named told the paper Nancy Lanza told him her son was “burning himself” and that she feared she was “losing him.”

The disappearing details

What that initial report also said, according to InfoWars.com, was that Adam Lanza was on a psychotropic drug.

“Adam’s uncle….said he was taking an anti-psychotic drug called Fanapt,” New York Magazine said in a follow-up report, quoting the initial New York Daily News story.

But then, InfoWars.com noted, that little factoid disappeared from the online versions of those initial reports.

“It’s almost certain that the original version of the article did mention this before being amended, and that the NY Mag piece was based on the original NY Daily News piece,” InfoWars.com reported.

Why would mainstream newspapers and magazines want to hide the fact that Lanza – and a host of previous mass murderers – were taking psychotropic drugs that almost certainly contributed to their deadly behavior?

The obvious answer is that blaming the drug takes away from their anti-gun agenda.

But the fact that these tragedies are being committed by psychiatric basket cases on drugs has not escaped the attention of everyone.

Big Pharma dollars doing the talking?

In calling for a long-overdue federal investigation into the link between psychiatric drugs and violence, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International cites three telling facts:

— Despite 22 international drug regulatory warnings on psychiatric drugs that cite effects like mania, violence, hostility and homicidal ideation, as well as scores of high-profile shootings and other killings tied to psychiatric drug use, “there has yet to be a federal investigation on the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of senseless violence,” the CCHRI said.

— At least 14 recent shootings at schools have been committed by someone taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs. The results are telling: 58 killed, 109 wounded. In other school shootings, “information about their drug use was never made public – neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs,” CCHRI said.

— Between 2004 and 2011, there have been 11,000 reports to the Food and Drug Administration’s MedWatch system regarding the side effects of psychiatric drugs in relation to violence. Included in these reports: 300 cases of homicide, nearly 3,000 cases of mania and over 7,000 cases of aggression. By the FDA’s own admission, CCHRI notes, only 1-10 percent of side effects are even reported to the agency, “so the actual number of side effects occurring are most certainly higher,” the international organization said.

Despite these horrendous statistics, there have been no calls by the mainstream media to have use of these drugs examined, let alone banned – unlike guns.

Could that be, in large part, due to the fact that Big Pharma spends tens of millions a year in advertising with the corporate media? …

Vaccine Mania: Linear Relationship Between Shots & Hospitalizations

A new study, published in Human and Experimental Toxicology, a peer-reviewed journal indexed by the National Library of Medicine, analyzed more than 38,000 reports of infant hospitalizations and deaths following vaccinations.[1] Researchers found statistically significant correlations between the number of vaccine doses administered to infants and infant hospitalization and mortality rates: babies who receive the most vaccines tend to have higher (worse) hospitalization and death rates.

Infants who received 2 vaccines simultaneously were significantly less likely to be hospitalized than infants who received 3 or more vaccines at the same time. Infants who received 3 vaccines simultaneously were significantly less likely to be hospitalized than infants who received 4 or more vaccines at the same time. Babies who received 6, 7, or 8 vaccines during a single pediatric well-baby visit were the most likely to be hospitalized following their injections. In fact, the hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0% for infants receiving 2 vaccine doses to 23.5% for infants receiving 8 vaccine doses.

The authors of the study, Dr. Gary Goldman and Neil Z. Miller, also discovered that younger infants were significantly more likely to be hospitalized after receiving vaccinations than older infants. In addition, infants who received 5-8 vaccines simultaneously were significantly more likely to die following their shots than infantswho received 1-4 vaccines simultaneously. …

My god, this data has been sitting there for years and no one has thought to look at these statistics?  How is this possible?  Here’s a hint:

Funding: This work is funded by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) who donated $2,500 towards the SAGE Choice Open Access fee for this article.

In other words, there’s no funding for anything but “scientifically correct” studies.  Independent funding sources must be found if you’re asking unapproved questions.  Still, anyone could have downloaded this data and put it in a spreadsheet.   Apparently the entire cost of the study was in paying for its publication.  This is a sad comment on the state of public oversight of our so-called medical “authorities.”  Buyer beware.

Unfortunately the database (http://vaers.hhs.gov/data/data) has no info on patient family income.  It would be interesting to know whether multiple vaccinations at an earlier age are occurring more frequently among poor people due to less reliable access or attendance to medical care (i.e. doctors’ doubts about patients’ ability to keep appointments might result in “shoehorning” more shots into each visit).

The Newtown School Tragedy: More than One Gunman?

It is now beyond question that the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King Jr. all involved patsies, additional gunman and perhaps most importantly, mass media complicity to achieve their political ends. Along these lines and in a fashion now characteristic of how such public executions are framed, the observations and analyses of citizen journalists and alternative media suggest how coverage of the Newtown Connecticut school shooting was substantially altered in the several hours and days following the event.

After the 1995 Murrah Federal Building bombing central elements that would help the citizenry make sense of the event, such as unexploded ordnance found in the structure and Timothy McVeigh’s accomplice, were stricken from the official narrative. Along these lines at the probable behest of government authorities a second gunman accompanying Jared Lee Loughner in 2011 was quickly tossed down the memory hole by news outlets covering the incident. Similar reportorial lapses took place at the Aurora Colorado massacre last July where eyewitnesses attested to spotting James Holmes’ collaborators (or handlers) inside the theater.

When the news media act as willing partners in such acts the public becomes an unwitting accessory in its own psychic imprisonment, lulled into the notion that fair play still exists and public servants remain are intent on service.

One of the most important red flags of a staged shooting is a second gunman,” health science and investigative writer Mike Adams observes, indicating the shooting was coordinated and planned. There are often mind control elements at work in many of these shootings … James Holmes, for example, was a graduate student actually working on mind control technologies funded by the U.S. government. There were also chemical mind control elements linked to Jared Lee Loughner. [1] …

Report finds harsh CIA interrogations ineffective

Ineffective?  It depends on the intent.  Clearly, it’s very effective at terrorizing americans who are awake to what is going on, who are likely to be labelled “terrorists” when they point out the obvious treason going on in washington.

After a contentious closed-door vote, the Senate intelligence committee approved a long-awaited report Thursday concluding that harsh interrogation measures used by the CIA did not produce significant intelligence breakthroughs, officials said.

The 6,000-page document, which was not released to the public, was adopted by Democrats over the objections of most of the committee’s Republicans. The outcome reflects the level of partisan friction that continues to surround the CIA’s use of waterboarding and other severe interrogation techniques four years after they were banned. …

 

Fictional Reserve Banking: Central Banks Missing Gold

Banks Pledge Same Collateral Numerous Times

Big banks pledged the same mortgage to numerous people.

Similarly, big bullion banks borrow gold from central banks, and then rehypothecate it numerous times (see interview at link below)

(Options contracts on all commodities are similarly over-leveraged.)

A 1999 study by the International Monetary Fund found that 80 central banks lent out 15% of their official gold reserves.

Central banks now appear to have too little gold to meet their commitments.

And private banks are raiding allocated gold accounts

The Lie of “Too Big To Fail” is Destroying the Economy

The Departments of Justice and Treasury are pretending that criminally prosecuting criminal banksters will destabilize the economy.

The exact opposite is true.

Failing to prosecute criminal fraud has been destabilizing the economy since at least 2007 … and will cause huge crashes in the future.

After all, the main driver of economic growth is a strong rule of law.

Nobel prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz says that we have to prosecute fraud or else the economy won’t recover:

The legal system is supposed to be the codification of our norms and beliefs, things that we need to make our system work. If the legal system is seen as exploitative, then confidence in our whole system starts eroding. And that’s really the problem that’s going on.

***

I think we ought to go do what we did in the S&L [crisis] and actually put many of these guys in prison. Absolutely. These are not just white-collar crimes or little accidents. There were victims. That’s the point. There were victims all over the world.

***

Economists focus on the whole notion of incentives. People have an incentive sometimes to behave badly, because they can make more money if they can cheat. If our economic system is going to work then we have to make sure that what they gain when they cheat is offset by a system of penalties.

Nobel prize winning economist George Akerlof has demonstrated that failure to punish white collar criminals – and instead bailing them out- creates incentives for more economic crimes and further destruction of the economy in the future.

Indeed, professor of law and economics (and chief S&L prosecutor) William Black notes that we’ve known of this dynamic for “hundreds of years”. And see this, this, this and this. ….

The coming drone attack on America

Actually “predator drone” has two meanings in colonial america.  It’s an excellent description of the statists and sheep in wolves’ clothing who are oblivious to the economic forces bearing down on this country, and who will carry out whatever orders are given from whoever wears a funny hat or poses in front of a flag.  Perfect pawns in someone else’s game.

Drones on domestic surveillance duties are already deployed by police and corporations. In time, they will likely be weaponised.

People often ask me, in terms of my argument about “ten steps” that mark the descent to a police state or closed society, at what stage we are. I am sorry to say that with the importation of what will be tens of thousands of drones, by both US military and by commercial interests, into US airspace, with a specific mandate to engage in surveillance and with the capacity for weaponization – which is due to begin in earnest at the start of the new year – it means that the police state is now officially here.

In February of this year, Congress passed the FAA Reauthorization Act, with its provision to deploy fleets of drones domestically. Jennifer Lynch, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, notes that this followed a major lobbying effort, “a huge push by […] the defense sector” to promote the use of drones in American skies: 30,000 of them are expected to be in use by 2020, some as small as hummingbirds – meaning that you won’t necessarily see them, tracking your meeting with your fellow-activists, with your accountant or your congressman, or filming your cruising the bars or your assignation with your lover, as its video-gathering whirs.

Others will be as big as passenger planes. Business-friendly media stress their planned abundant use by corporations: police in Seattle have already deployed them.

An unclassified US air force document reported by CBS (pdf) news expands on this unprecedented and unconstitutional step – one that formally brings the military into the role of controlling domestic populations on US soil, which is the bright line that separates a democracy from a military oligarchy. (The US constitution allows for the deployment of National Guard units by governors, who are answerable to the people; but this system is intended, as is posse comitatus, to prevent the military from taking action aimed at US citizens domestically.) ….

At the risk of being nauseatingly repetitive, all of this pre-hitlerian jackbooted takeover is justified by the utterly scientifically disprovable fable of the official story of 9/11.  Clearly, the only people in a position to neutralize NORAD or destroy crucial SEC records of pre-9/11 “puts” or plant tons of incindiary thermite in the WTC towers or steal military grade weaponized anthrax from a US bioweapons lab or orchestrate such a transparently laughable media coverup are moles inside the government and their corporate controllers.   Therefore, any “peace activist” who refuses to look at the evidence of a false flag operation which is now available on a silver platter for anyone to see is not really an activist at all, but a statist, a “loyal” pawn of traitors and mass murderers who are parading around in the open.  I guess nazi germany was full of them.

Look behind the throne: this is a coup in progress by the same interests which shipped our industrial infrastructure to china.

Epidemic of Kidney Disease from GMO Food

Severe, acute kidney injuries have doubled over the last decade and continue to rise by 10 percent a year according to a hot new study out of the University of California, San Francisco. Raymond K. Hsu, MD, a UCSF nephrologist who led the research said “That was a staggering revelation of how increasingly common and how life-threatening acute kidney injury has become over the past decade in the United States.” Of course, doctors are clueless and cannot account for the rise in acute kidney injury.

Meanwhile, the latest word from the American Society of Nephrology says that the total number of deaths associated with dialysis-requiring acute kidney injuries rose from 18,000 in 2000 to nearly 39,000 in 2009 – that’s more than double in a decade. When you look at all the studies that are coming out showing kidney failure and injuries in study animals after 90 days on GMO foods, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out “why.”…

A new study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences (IJBS), which analyzed the effects of GMO foods on mammalian health, found that Monsanto’s GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats. The study concluded: “Effects were mostly concentrated in kidney and liver function, the two major diet detoxification organs… some effects on heart, adrenal, spleen and blood cells were also frequently noted… We therefore conclude that our data strongly suggests that these GM maize varieties induce a state of hepatorenal toxicity….These substances have never before been an integral part of the human or animal diet and therefore their health consequences for those who consume them, especially over long time periods are currently unknown.”

Interestingly, this was a 90-day study that showed once-again, the damaging effects of GMO foods. The mammals used were rats that live about two years. These rats were fed GMO foods for 90 days and then compared to rats fed a non-GMO diet. 90 days of a rat’s life equates to the human equivalent of roughly 10 years of life – putting us on the threshold of cataclysmic health disaster. …

I’ve had two cats and a dog die from kidney disease in the last 2 years.  Looking at the ingredients in my dog and cat foods, I found corn and soy to be at the top of the list.  But in the USA, the vast majority of these crops are now GMO.  I’ve had two other cats who suffered some kind of allergic reaction that was diagnosed as a form of lupus.  One died.  The other recovered after switching her to normal (meat based) cat food.
