SPREAD THE NEWS. Global Warming by Man Made CO2 Is a CONFIDENCE TRICK  
.

Over 30,000 scientists say 'Catastrophic Man-Made
Global Warming' is a complete hoax and science lie

NaturalNews August 31, 2016
By Daniel Barker

The highly-politicized climate change debate rages on as we approach the crucial 2016 U.S. presidential election, despite an ever-growing body of evidence revealing the fact that "catastrophic man-made global warming" is nothing more than an elaborate hoax.

And the November election may prove to be a victory for the hoaxers, according to experts who happen to be among those who dare to challenge the spurious climate change narrative.

One of these experts is Weather Channel founder John Coleman, who is now warning that the election could prove to be a "tipping point" in favor of people like Al Gore, who continue to amass vast fortunes based on the global warming scam.

In a recent interview with Climate Depot, Coleman said:

"Al Gore may emerge from the shadows to declare victory in the 'global warming' debate if Hillary Clinton moves into the White House. Yes, if that happens and the new climate regulations become the law of the land, they will be next to impossible to overturn for four to eight years."

Climate change proponents remain undeterred in their mission, ignoring numerous recent scientific findings indicating that there has been no warming trend at all for nearly two decades.

Al Gore's dire predictions of the melting of polar ice on a massive scale have proved to be completely false. In fact, in 2014 - a year that was touted as being "the hottest ever" in the Earth's history - there were record amounts of ice reported in Antarctica, an increase in Arctic ice, and record snowfalls across the globe.


Debunking the "97 percent" lie
On top of those "inconvenient truths," the White House's assertion that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is real has been completely debunked. Several independently-researched examinations of the literature used to support the "97 percent" statement found that the conclusions were cherry-picked and misleading.

More objective surveys have revealed that there is a far greater diversity of opinion among scientists than the global warming crowd would like for you to believe.

From the National Review:

"A 2008 survey by two German scientists, Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, found that a significant number of scientists were skeptical of the ability of existing global climate models to accurately predict global temperatures, precipitation, sea-level changes, or extreme weather events even over a decade; they were far more skeptical as the time horizon increased."

Other mainstream news sources besides the National Review have also been courageous enough to speak out against the global warming propaganda - even the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed piece in 2015 challenging the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) pseudoscience being promulgated by global warming proponents.

And, of course, there are the more than 31,000 American scientists (to date) who have signed a petition challenging the climate change narrative and 9,029 of them hold PhDs in their respective fields. But hey, Al Gore and his cronies have also ignored that inconvenient truth, as well.

Many of those scientists who signed the petition were likely encouraged to speak out in favor of the truth after retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist John L. Casey revealed that solar cycles are largely responsible for warming periods on Earth - not human activity.


Al Gore and cronies continue getting richer from the global warming hoax
But the global warming crowd continues to push their agenda on the public while lining their pockets in the process. If you're still inclined to believe what Al Gore has to say about global warming, please consider the fact that since he embarked on his crusade, his wealth has grown from $2 million in 2001 to $100 million in 2016 - largely due to investments in fake "green tech" companies and the effective embezzlement of numerous grants and loans.

You might want to take all of this information into serious consideration before casting your vote in the November election.

Meet the climate change bigoted professors who BANNED informed debate:
.
Rebecca Laroche, Wendy Haggren and Eileen Skahill... NO THINKING ALLOWED
NaturalNews August 31, 2016
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

If you're curious what real intellectual bigotry looks like, look no further than this story from The College Fix which details the anti-science absurdities of today's bigoted college professors.
According to the report, "Three professors co-teaching an online course called 'Medical Humanities in the Digital Age' at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs recently told their students via email that man-made climate change is not open for debate."
In invoking their intellectual bigotry and anti-science stance, these three female professors cite the widely debunked false claim that "97% of climate scientists agree on climate change." That statistic was fraudulently derived by a biased researcher hand-picking a few dozen email responses from an informal email survey that carries no scientific weight whatsoever (see below).
Apparently, teaching classes at the University of Colorado does not require you to actually know what you're talking about, because the 97% claim is the perfect example of politically motivated scientific quackery that's now accepted as consensus reality at America's zombie universities.
From the book A Disgrace to the Profession:
An opinion survey of earth scientists on global climate change was conducted by Margaret R K Zimmerman, MS, and published by the University of Illinois in 2008.
Aside from his support from Dr Pantsdoumi, Mann often claims the imprimatur of "settled science": 97 per cent of the world's scientists supposedly believe in catastrophic anthropogenic global warming requiring massive government intervention. That percentage derives from a survey conducted for a thesis by M R K Zimmerman.
The "survey" was a two-question, online questionnaire sent to 10,257 earth scientists, of whom 3,146 responded.
Of the responding scientists, 96.2 per cent came from North America.
Only 6.2 per cent came from Canada. So the United States is overrepresented even within that North American sample.
Nine per cent of US respondents are from California. So California is overrepresented within not just the US sample: it has over twice as large a share of the sample as Europe, Asia, Australia, the Pacific, Latin America and Africa combined.
Of the ten per cent of non-US respondents, Canada has 62 per cent.
Not content with such a distorted sample, the researchers then selected 79 of their sample and declared them "experts."
Of those 79 scientists, two were excluded from a second supplementary question. So 75 out of 77 made it through to the final round, and 97.4 per cent were found to agree with "the consensus". That's where the 97 per cent comes from.
So this is a very Michael Mann "reconstruction": just as a couple of Californian bristlecones can determine the climate for a millennium, so a couple of dozen Californian scientists can determine the consensus of the world.
Nonetheless, the compilers also invited comments from respondents and published them in the appendices. In terms of specific scientific material, the hockey stick attracted three comments - one blandly positive, the other two not so much.
No debate allowed: YOUR evidence doesn't count!

Mind control: New light technology can manipulate memories, emotions and thoughts
.
NaturalNews August 31, 2016 by: Amy Goodrich

New research on mice has shown that blue light stimulation of brain cells can recover memories in mice with Alzheimer's disease. Furthermore, they found that artificial reactivation of positive memories through light could suppress the effects of stress-induced depression.
A team led by RIKEN Brain Science Institute center director, Susumu Tonegawa, identified a population of brain cells that can be altered with light so that memories, emotions and even thoughts can be manipulated through a unique technique called optogenetics.
Optogenetics integrates genetic and optical methods to control the mind. Its key molecule is a light-sensitive protein extracted from green algae, called channelrhodopsin. This particular protein can be inserted into memory cells and activated with fiber-optic blue light. Once activated by light, this protein stimulates its host.
Watch the video where Professor Susumu Tonegawa discusses the potential of optogenetics for therapeutic use in humans:



Curing depression through optogenetics
The scientists found that optogenetics could successfully be used to manipulate memories in a mouse brain. They were able to implant a false memory causing depression which was then cured through the activation of happy memories.
As reported by Open Transcripts, depression is a terrible brain disorder that globally afflicts 350 million people. In most cases, depression is caused by chronic stress and a series of negative memories.
According to Susumu Tonegawa and his team, negative and positive memories are always competing with each other in the brain. Through the use of optogenetics, the scientists were able to cure depression in mice by overwriting negative memories with positive ones.
First, they implanted positive memories into the brain of a male mouse by letting it play with a female mouse. Then the mouse was subjected to chronic stress treatment which caused symptoms of depression. These feeling of depression were then cured by activating the positive memory through the use of light technology.
Another effective way to ease feelings of depression is to diffuse essential oils throughout your home.
Recover memories lost to Alzheimer's disease

Could this be the end of Alzheimer's? Revolutionary drug 'may stop the disease from ever developing'
.
Aducanumab is designed to target the underlying damage to the brain
Works by targeting the hallmark tangle of proteins in Alzheimer's patients
Study showed those who took drug had reduced build up after a year
Experts hailed the findings as 'game-changing' and 'unprecedented'
By Fiona Macrae Science Correspondent For The Daily Mail
31 August 2016 1 September 2016

A revolutionary drug that could stop people from ever developing Alzheimer’s disease has been unveiled by scientists.
Trials have produced ‘unprecedented’ results and the medicine has been hailed as a potential game-changer in the fight against the cruel disease.
In future, healthy pensioners could be prescribed the drug to ward off dementia, in much the same way as statins are given today to those at risk of heart attacks.
One British expert described the drug, which is about to be tested in hospitals around the UK, as the best yet, others called it ‘ingenious’ work with ‘tantalising’ results.
And a US doctor hailed it as the best news in his 25-year career.

Turkey’s Invasion Of Syria: The Roadmap To “Regime Change”?
.
By Mark Sleboda
Global Research, August 29, 2016
Moon of Alabama 29 August 2016

The US-backed Turkish invasion of Syria with its proxies in tow now moves further into Syria to seize Al-Bab in a landgrab to create Erdogan’s (and the U.S. neocon Brookings Institute’s) long desired jihadi “safe haven”/”no fly zone” for al-Qaeda & friends to operate and stage from with impunity from Russian and Syrian airstrikes.
Al-Bab is a “backdoor” on key routes south to Aleppo from the Turkish border.
Turkish supplies for the Islamic Army of Conquest offensives in South Aleppo and Latakia: arms, ammo, supplies, even artillery, tanks have been reported as flowing like water over the Turkish border
Turkey is obviously not coordinating its incursion with the Syrian government which condemns it as a violation of its sovereignty. The Kremlin’s impotent calls for Turkey to coordinate with Damascus while waving the old Geneva communique have been completely ignored. Unfortunately there is little they can do at this point without engaging in a full scale war with Turkey and the U.S. in Syria. Something the Kremlin lacks the will to do. Turkey/U.S. intend that their proxies take Aleppo as leverage in settlement negotiations to force Assad to step down, or partition if that fails.
Both the Turkish and FSA flags, (not the Syrian flag), were raised over “liberated” Jarablus
Securing the Jarablus corridor from a westward YPG advance in attempts to link their “cantons” east and west along the Turkish border prevents supply lines to “Syrian rebels” from Turkey from being cut. That’s why Turkey has taken action here while however grudgingly accepting Kurdish control over large stretches of Syrian-Turkish border everywhere else without taking action. The ratlines to the “rebels” are Turkey’s primary concern here. Kurds are an important but demonstratively second concern.
Turkey’s incursion was backed by US air-cover, drones, and embedded special forces per the WSJ. These were there largely to prevent Russia and Syria from even thinking about taking action against the invading forces.
Turkey is moving into Syria not just with its own military, but with thousands of “rebel opposition groups” including US-backed FSA brigades allied with AlQaeda/Nusra/Sham and the child head-chopping al-Zinki who are reported to form the vanguard. Syrian territory is outright being turned over to them by the Turkish military, simply exchanging control from one group of terrorist jihadis (ISIS) to others who are more media acceptable and more direct proxies of the Erdogan regime, the U.S., Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
That said, ISIS has not resisted the Turkish advance at all – simply “melting away” (or exchanging one set of uniforms for another?). No stay-behinds, no suicide bombers, no IEDS, nothing. No fighting. Zero casualties. Turkish and “Syrian rebel” forces literally strolled in to Jarablus taking selfies and posing for cameras. Tag-team turnover.
The Kurdish YPG/SDF have proven that they have become nothing but lickspittle currs for the U.S., despite being betrayed, dutifully responding to the leash and withdrawing from Manbij which they bled for, and all positions east of the Euphrates on Biden’s orders as he staged a press conference in Ankara with Erdogan. They have served their part in providing another layer of pretext for Turkey to invade Syria.

Turkey rejects truce with Kurds, lashes out at US over ‘unacceptable’ comments
.
RT America 31 Aug, 2016

Ankara has summoned the US ambassador to Turkey to explain Washington’s “unacceptable” comments about Turkey’s anti-ISIS operation in Syria, rejecting any talk of a ceasefire with the US-backed Kurdish militia and vowing to “eliminate all threats.”
Turkish forces crossed into Syria on August 24, targeting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) positions along the border. As IS fighters melted away, however, Turkish troops involved in ‘Operation Euphrates Shield’ clashed with the Kurdish YPG militia, part of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Washington has since called on Turkey to refrain from targeting the Kurds, with the State Department spokesman John Kirby saying this was “not helping us degrade and destroy” IS, while Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said the reports of clashes were “a source of deep concern.”
US Defense Secretary Ash Carter also called on Turkey to “stay focused on the fight against IS and not to engage the SDF.”

Final chemical weapon components removed from Libya by British & Danish navies - MoD
.
RT UK 31 Aug, 2016

British sailors, alongside the Danish Navy, have helped to escort the last chemicals that could have been used to make toxic weapons out of Libya, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) reports.
Libya was largely disarmed of chemical weapons in 2014 but the last remnants have now been taken out of the war-wracked North African state after a request by the country’s UN-brokered unity government to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
“RFA Mounts Bay will help ensure chemical weapons precursors do not fall into the hands of extremist groups, including Daesh [Arabic pejorative term for IS]. This contribution underlines our support to the Libyan Government of National Accord,” Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said in a statement.
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also applauded the effort.
“The UK, in close cooperation with our international partners, is taking practical and effective action to eliminate chemical weapon risks in Libya,” he said.
The chemicals will be taken to a specialist facility to be destroyed.
The military said samples of the chemicals would be “flown to the UK for analysis by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) at Porton Down – the MoD’s science arm.”

Why does anyone pay attention to John Coleman?,.
"Both Fox News and CNN have recently invited John Coleman, one of the founders of The Weather Channel and former TV meteorologist, to express his views about climate change to their national audiences. Coleman is simply an awful choice to discuss this issue. He lacks credentials, many of his statements about climate change completely lack substance or mislead, and I’m not even sure he knows what he actually believes..............The Weather Channel – which in part owes its existence to Coleman – has smartly distanced itself from him. “We’re grateful that he got us started 32 years ago,” David Kenny, the current CEO of The Weather Company which own The Weather Channel, told CNN. “But he hasn’t been with us in 31 years. So he’s not really speaking for The Weather Channel in any way today. After Coleman’s Fox News interview, The Weather Channel re-released its very sensible and centrist 2007 position statement on climate change. It says:
[O]bservations, together with computer model simulations and historical climate reconstructions from ice cores, ocean sediments and tree rings all provide strong evidence that the majority of the warming over the past century is a result of human activities. This is also the conclusion drawn, nearly unanimously, by climate scientists.
In a real HEAD SCRATCHER, in the same CNN interview in which Coleman called climate change “baloney”, he called The Weather Channel’s statement “PRETTY REASONABLE.”"

Jason's "attack the messenger" article quotes the IPCC as an authoritative source. That's a sub org of UNEP (see this: Illuminist Maurice Strong was Secretary-General of the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio 1992. There he smuggled the Conservation Bank/GEF of his friend, Edmund de Rothschild, into the UN system.) and the deeply corrupt luciferian UN whose agenda is world government and depopulation.
The IPCC was run by a railway engineer associated with TATA that went from a minor oil industry company to a multi national soon after Pachauri was hired. Its scientists are in the main activists with loyalties to other than the truth. Hockey stick, tree rings, poor activist Gavin has had some spectacular con jobs debunked.
... multiple, independent scientific assessments (e.g. the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change
Each report is systematically torn down and demonstrated to be a speculative document with a political agenda.
Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) does a good job in that direction.

Back-radiation
Greenhouse gas theory to support the notion of global warming, postulates heat transfer from cold atmosphere down to warm surface, heating surface further. The Kiehl-Trenberth diagram says back-radiation transfer rate is 333, which is 2.1x that impinging surface from the sun, 161. This extraordinary value defies common experience.
I have shown the existence of any back-radiation would violate the Second Law of Thermodynamics; heat only transfers from hot to cold or from high intensity radiators to lower intensity radiators. If back-radiation existed, it would lead to creation of energy, a violation of the First Law of Thermo, constituting a perpetual motion machine of the first and second kinds, which is impossible, but just what AGW proponents need to support their perpetual global warming idea.

US finds Israel’s retroactive approval of illegal settlements ‘particularly troubling’
.
RT News 1 Sep, 2016

Washington has criticized Israel’s announced settlement expansion in the occupied territories, once again stressing that increased construction activity jeopardizes the two-state solution between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
The Civil Administration's High Planning Committee on Wednesday went on to approve the development of 234 housing units for the elderly in Elkana Jewish settlement, south of Nablus city. In addition, Israel also approved the erection of 21 units in Givat Ze'ev, in East Jerusalem and 31 housing units in Beit Arie, central West Bank.
Furthermore, the committee retroactively approved 179 housing units in Beit Arie which have already been built without permits.
The Jewish settlements which have been expanding following the Six-Day War of 1967, are illegal under international law. Earlier this week, the UN went on to express concern about the increase in housing projects carried out by Israel in the occupied lands over the last couple of months.
On Monday, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov, reminded the Security Council that Israeli settlements in occupied territory have “no legal validity and are an obstruction to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East.”

Israel to ratify nuclear test ban treaty in 5 years - UN official
.
RT News 1 Sep, 2016

Israel will likely be the next country to ratify the nuclear test ban treaty, a UN official says, adding it that shouldn't take more than five years. The treaty is awaiting a greenlight from eight states, including the US, before it can come into effect.
“I'm putting five years as the longest it should take now based on the positive sign that I'm seeing from Israel,” Lassina Zerbo, the executive secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization, (CTBTO), told AP on Wednesday.
The comments follow Zerbo's June visit to Israel, during which he met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Zerbo went on to credit last year's Iran nuclear deal in the Middle East for “creating the confidence-building conditions in the region to help others to move forward.”
He said he believes it's just a matter of time before Iran – another country which has yet to ratify the CTBT – will also do so.

RT Business 31 Aug, 2016

Global crude prices are headed for their biggest gain in five months as speculation mounts over a deal to cap output by the world's biggest producers.
Prices for Brent crude are looking to gain over 13 percent in August, while US benchmark West Texas Intermediate is headed for a 14 percent gain for the month.
Earlier this week, Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abadi said Iraq is going to back the output freeze as the prolonged decline in prices was hurting the second-biggest member of OPEC.
Turkey’s reaction to Washington’s criticism was to summon US Ambassador John Bass to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and express Ankara’s official displeasure. During the meeting it was stressed that “such statements are unacceptable and do not correspond to the relations with the alliance,” said Turkish MFA spokesman Tanju Bilgiç, according to the newspaper Hurriyet.

Op-Edge: Tag-team trouble: ‘Taliban commanders swearing allegiance to ISIS in Afghanistan’
.
RT 31 Aug, 2016

US troops in Afghanistan are in a train-and-advise role, but increasingly they’re having to get more into combat situations, and they are not equipped for that, Michael Maloof, former Pentagon official told RT America’s Simone Del Rosario.
The war in Afghanistan has cost the US hundreds of lives and billions of taxpayers’ dollars all with promises to bring peace to the country and prevent another 9/11 attack. Despite all of the US government’s efforts to fight the war on terror, the Taliban continues to dominate many regions in Afghanistan.
RT: There is concern that the Afghan government could fall by October creating a crisis for security in the region. Is that correct?
Michael Maloof: That is correct, that is because we have too few US train-and-advise troops in there to give them that kind of training, limited resources, so that when Afghan forces go into a particular area, let’s say in Helmand Province, the Taliban tactically then will hit up in Kunduz up in the Northern Province. Those forces, because there are so few of them, have to leave the area that they have secured… and as a consequence the Taliban comes around and refills that void. The US troops who are left there are in a train-and-advise role, but increasingly they’re having to get more into a combat role, and they are not equipped for that. So the areas that they hold are very, very limited and Taliban realizes it.

I also think that there is like a tag-team effort that is going on between the Taliban and ISIS now. ISIS occupies Nangarhar, which is a province in the eastern portion of Afghanistan. It is right next to the province called Kabul, where the capital is located – of Kabul. In fact that region has been the source of ISIS fighters going into Kabul, attacking inside the capital itself, which happened just last month.

What would doctors and scientists know, anyway?
"This week saw celebrity chef Pete Evans advise a woman who had been diagnosed with osteoporosis to avoid dairy. That prompted a doctor from Brisbane to retort, "Can we make a deal? You don't give medical advice and I won't tell you how to best shuck oysters." Sounds fair to me.

The woman seeking medical advice from Evans and he feeling so free to give it are symptomatic of an alarming rush away from the ideals of the Enlightenment of the 18th Century, from scientific method, doubt, experiment and rational thought. Careful study and empirical evidence are wilting in the glare of our heated and polemical world. Science, knowledge and expertise are all under open attack.

Last week new research by brilliant Australian scientists determined that climate change first started to affect the planet in the 1830s.
But how can reason compete against people like Senator Malcolm Roberts, who blithely insists that climate change data is being cunningly manipulated by that well-known green-socialist institution, NASA.
Treasurer Scott Morrison last week advocated a "pub test" before the Australian Research Council gave any of the increasingly scarce money for academic research. Morrison was certain that the knockabout ignorance of blokes in the front bar of your local pub was more worthy than the knowledge of any ivory tower academic.

Then there's the crusade of a handful of Hollywood celebrities and some crackpot websites against millions of medical experts who every single day save children's lives through vaccinations.
Meanwhile Pauline Hanson wants to abolish the Family Court and replace it with a tribunal that consists of "people from mainstream Australia". Maybe they could borrow those blokes from Scott Morrison's mythical pub. And it's a banal knee-jerk stock-in-trade of shock-jocks to attack judges (with years of experience) for their supposedly lenient sentences.
Don't like the mountain of evidence that shows same-sex couples make good parents? That's no problem when you've got pseudo-science and prejudice in your corner.
Against this gold-plated Trumpian world of bluster and confusion I present a simple unalloyed truth: your delusional nonsense and even your sincere ignorance do not equal rational ideas based on Enlightenment values of reason and inquiry.
While we all can have valid opinions about quotidian matters such as the weather, sport and politics that does not mean wilfully turning our backs on wisdom and learning.
So here's to the experts, the nerds and the boffins - they've earned their white coats, their degrees and our respect."

Do you have doubts whether vaccines can really protect your child from illness or disease? Do you worry that your child could become autistic, or develop asthma, allergies or even a fatal childhood disease, like Sudden Infant Death syndrome? These are not theories. Millions of American infants have these conditions today. Yet most other countries recommend less than half the vaccines we do.
What you're about to read may come as a shock. It did for me when I first began to research vaccines and their effect on the body over a decade ago. Hundreds of hours of digging into the medical literature and checking the facts compelled me to speak out.
Much of what I discovered was in conflict with the way most of us are taught to care for our children. Let's face it — most parents agree to have their newborn child vaccinated and believe it is the right thing to do. It's what their parents did, and it's what their doctors recommend. Once they start, the child goes on to receive numerous vaccinations year after year, up through their teens. All the while you, the parent, continue to think you're doing the right thing.
Well. . .as it turns out, it's often a mistake.
What you'll see when you peek behind the curtain of the multi-billion dollar drug and vaccine cartels should scare the life out of you. . .because your child is being put in harm's way more than you are being told.
Vid Robert F. Kennedy Jr. comments on the cover-up:
Vaccines, Mercury/ thimerosal & Autism (4 min.)
The Harsh Truth
Whether or not to vaccinate is a decision only you can make.
Sadly, it's not likely you can turn to your pediatrician for help with this decision. You see, most doctors have staked their reputations and their financial well-being on the assumed safety and effectiveness of vaccines. They are bound by their profession to promote vaccinations.
But there's another point of view, just as valid.
You're about to discover that
= vaccination is big business and big money for doctors, for the drug companies and for the government;
= vaccines are by no means proven safe, as you are being led to believe.
You deserve to know the facts.
You deserve to have access to the information being put forth by doctors, scientists, and researchers all over the world who are speaking out today — the facts can no longer be denied.
Some top scientists in the field of human genetics go so far as to say it's an outright assault on children and the future of the human race.
One Canadian physician, Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, puts it this way:
"The medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been an assault on the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are actually changing our genetic code through vaccination. . .100 years from now we will know that the biggest crime against humanity was vaccines."

Zika Propaganda Is a ‘Virus of the Mind’
Rooted in Fabricated Hysteria, Government Junk Science and Dark Political Agendas
By: Mike Adams
News Target August 30, 2016

An article that I’m calling “the most important piece of investigative journalism yet published about Zika” has just appeared at Health Impact News.The article, found at this link, confirms and documents what I’ve been saying about Zika virus all along: It’s all a grand quack science HOAX rooted in political agendas, not legitimate medical science.
The article is written by John P. Thomas, and I’m reprinting a portion of it here while encouraging you to get the full article at Health Impact News. It reveals that just like every other mass hysteria pandemic propaganda campaign launched by the CDC, the WHO and Big Pharma, Zika propaganda is a “masterpiece of public mind control”.
Right on cue, Disney World has jumped on the Zika propaganda bandwagon and has started handing out DEET chemicals for parents to spray all over their children, oblivious to the scientifically documented fact that DEET chemicals cause seizures, comas and severe neurological disorders in children.
Part of the hoax, of course, is that as those neurological symptoms begin to appear in children treated with DEET, they will be blamed on Zika as justification for more chemical bombardment of everyone.
Here’s the beginning of the article. Read the rest at this link at this link.

"Sputnik" with George Galloway (Episode 139)
Aug 27, 2016

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are not so much two cheeks on the same backside as Godzilla 1 vs Godzilla 2. And as the plot unfolds, the billionaire Trump turns out not to be a billionaire at all, whilst down-home Hill and Bill have amassed a king’s ransom – some of it actually from kings. Who’s going to win? Can’t they both lose? We invited Inderjeet Parmar, writer and Professor of American studies at London’s City University, into the Sputnik studio to ask what it all means for the rest of the world.
And in part two, the world’s richest dictatorship, Saudi Arabia, is using Western weapons and expertise to destroy the scant infrastructure of its impoverished neighbor, Yemen – and no school, hospital, bridge, mosque, highway, or public building is safe from the latest military hardware on the market. Virtually no media is covering the subsequent slaughter, even though Yemen is a former British colony. Dr. RS Karim is a man who hasn’t passed the Yemenis by on the other side of the road. Co-founder of Mona Relief, he joins Sputnik to tell us how this fund is providing relief during this humanitarian crisis.

Pentagon cloaks ignorance in calling Russia’s killing of top ISIS leader ‘joke’– Russian Def
.
RT News 2 Sep, 2016

The Russian Defense Ministry has rebuked Pentagon officials’ statements that reports of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) top commander Abu Muhammad al-Adnani's death in a Russian airstrike were a “joke.”
It is not surprising that the US Defense Ministry doesn't know what the situation in Syria is like, since it doesn't want to work with Russia, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
“There is nothing unusual in the absence of any factual information about the Russian Air Force strike on August 30,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told a news briefing, adding that US officials have been boasting on a daily basis for more than a year that they “by no means coordinate or concert their operations in Syria with Russia.”
“How are you then supposed to get this information at all?” Konashenkov said. He added that the Pentagon has no choice but to call Russian reports “a joke” in order to “cloak its own ignorance.”
On August 31, Pentagon officials told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Moscow’s claim that Islamic State leader Abu Muhammad al-Adnani was killed in one of its air strikes was false and called it “a joke.”
Islamic State confirmed the death of Adnani in Aleppo region on August 30, providing no further details. Moscow then said that the terrorist leader had been killed in an air strike conducted by a Russian Su-34 bomber, adding that Adnani’s death in the strike was confirmed by several intelligence channels.
