Big Pharma Invents Diseases to Market Their Poison

True to it’s criminal nature, Big Pharma continually concocts phony diseases so they can sell you their drugs. How many made-up illnesses are you taking drugs for?

Warning! Don't Take Another Drug Until You Read How You're Being Conned...

Posted by: Dr. Mercola
January 28 2010 | 25,810 views is a disease that causes bones to become thinner, more porous and break more easily. Osteopenia is different from osteoporosis -- it is a slight thinning of bones that occurs naturally as women get older and typically doesn't result in disabling bone breaks.

Osteopenia is a condition that only recently started to be thought of as a problem that required treatment. Until the early 1990’s, only a handful of people had even heard of the word. But osteopenia has transformed from a rarely heard word into a problem that millions of women swallow pills to treat.

The term “osteopenia” was never originally meant to be considered as a disease -- it was a research category used mostly because some thought it might be useful for public health researchers who like clear categories for their studies.

But in 1995, a man named Jeremy Allen was approached by the drug company Merck. The pharmaceutical giant had just released a new osteoporosis drug called Fosamax. Since osteoporosis is a serious problem that affects millions of women, the potential market for Fosamax was enormous. But the drug wasn’t selling well.

Allen persuaded Merck to establish a nonprofit called the Bone Measurement Institute. On its board were six of the most respected osteoporosis researchers in the country.

But the institute itself had a rather slim staff: Allen was the only employee.

In 1997 the institute and several other interested organizations successfully lobbied to pass the Bone Mass Measurement Act, a piece of legislation that changed Medicare reimbursement rules to cover bone scans. More and more women got bone density tests (at Merck’s urging), and the very existence of the word "osteopenia" on a medical report had a profound effect.

Millions of women were worried by the diagnosis. And when clinicians saw the word 'osteopenia' on a report, they assumed it was a disease. Merck did not disabuse them of the notion.

There are no long-term studies that look at what happens to women with osteopenia who start Fosamax in their 50’s and continue treatment long-term in the hopes of preventing old-age fractures. And none are planned.

I don’t believe for a minute that Merck’s motivation for pushing the label “osteopenia” was to make it convenient for the researchers. It’s very clear that Big Pharma has one overriding goal—a handsome sales report at the end of the quarter.

Since 2003, annual sales of osteoporosis drugs have about doubled to $8.3 billion, and $3 billion of that was from Fosamax alone.

Convincing you that you have a disease when you don’t is nothing short of medical molestation. It’s unethical, self-serving, and demonstrates the upside-down priorities of the pharmaceutical giants.

But it isn’t surprising, I’m sorry to say.

Manipulating Research and Massaging Data

The manufacturers of osteoporosis drugs exaggerate the benefits and downplay the risks of so-called bone-strengthening drugs, according to a report in the January 2008 issue of British Medical Journal (BMJ)[i].

The paper states that the strongest single risk factor for fracture is falling, not osteoporosis.

Authors emphasize that “drug treatment is not a panacea,” and that women with osteopenia have such a low risk of fractures that drug treatment provides no benefit at all—but comes with all of the risks.

The paper states:

“What the drug makers do is argue that the effect of treating pre-osteoporosis (osteopenia) and osteoporosis is similar. This move to treat pre-osteoporosis raises serious questions about the benefit-risk relationship for low-risk individuals and about the costs of medicalizing and potentially medicating an enormous group of healthy people.”

The paper also states that all four studies cited by drug companies to substantiate the benefits of giving osteoporosis drugs to women with osteopenia were exaggerated[ii]. For example, one study claimed a 75 percent reduction in the risk of fracture, but the real risk reduction was only 0.9 percent.

These same studies also downplayed the potentially harmful side effects of these drugs. In one, they simply “forgot to mention” that raloxifene (Evista by Eli Lily) increased your risk for blood clots.

The BMJ article also mentions that many of the authors of the four studies were employees of the pharmaceutical industry, not surprisingly.

New Tools for Calculating Your Fracture Risk

In response public concern about the risks of these drugs, the World Health Organization recently developed an online tool meant to help physicians and patients determine when treatment for deteriorating bones is appropriate. It’s called FRAX (Fracture Risk Assessment Tool), and it claims to take into account risk factors other than bone density alone.

Before you get too excited about this handy new tool, it turns out that FRAX is proving to be as controversial as osteopenia.

It just so happens that FRAX was developed by the same people who came up with the faux-disease osteopenia in the first place! It’s no surprise, then, that the advised threshold for medication is too low.[iii]

There is some promise, however, offered by another tool called the FRISK (Fracture Risk Score), which was developed by an independent group of scientists[iv]. The FRISK score is based on multiple-site bone mineral densities (BMDs) and other risk factors such as likelihood of falling, bone mass, body weight, and other variables.

What You Risk With Fosamax

Merck tried to hide the fact that Fosamax is causing jawbone death, a disease now known to oral surgeons as Bisphosphate-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (BRONJ) or “Fossy Jaw,” a nasty side effect of Fosamax and related drugs that is difficult to treat.

Essentially, the condition causes your jawbone to rot and decay—quite ironic considering the drugs are primarily taken by people looking to strengthen their bones.

In addition to BRONJ, bisphosphate drugs have also been associated with:

* Serious eye inflammation and possible blindness
* Liver damage
* Atrial fibrillation
* Increased risk of ulcers
* Esophageal cancer
* Renal failure
* Skin reactions
* Hypocalcemia (blood calcium levels are too low)

With a resume like this, it’s not surprising that Merck may have intentionally tried to keep the side effects of Fosamax under wraps—what drug representative would want to share this information with potential clients?

Merck did the same thing with their tragically dangerous painkiller, Vioxx.

Fosamax: Works on Bone Cells AND Soap Scum

Bisphosphonate drugs like Fosamax, Actonel and Boniva, are problematic because they stay in the bone indefinitely and disrupt the normal bone regeneration process.

Healthy bones maintain their strength from a continual process of bone breakdown and bone rebuilding. Osteoclasts are the cells that break down your bone, and osteoblasts are the cells that rebuild it.

Fosamax and similar drugs poison your osteoclasts, permanently killing them—the normal bone repair process is halted. So, your bones will indeed get denser. However, denser bones are NOT stronger bones, which is the part they don’t tell you. In fact, eventually your bones become weaker and more prone to fracture.


Because bone is a dynamic structure that requires the removal of unhealthy bone and REPLACEMENT with new bone to stay strong. Fosamax does NOT build any new bone. It only kills the cells that break bone down, so your bone is not benefitting from its natural regenerative process.

But don’t throw out that Fosamax just yet!

It’s in the same chemical class (phosphonate) as the cleaners you use to remove soap scum from your bathtub. So, maybe you can make use of it in your bathroom after all.

Osteoporosis MYTHS: Calcium and Protein

I have already busted the myth that you need to use a bisphosphonate drug to keep your bones healthy. But there are two other myths that need dispelling:

1. Osteoporosis is caused by calcium deficiency: Bone is composed of at least a dozen minerals, and if you focus exclusively on calcium supplementation you are likely going to worsen your bone density and actually increase your risk of osteoporosis.

Overconsumption of calcium creates other mineral deficiencies and imbalances, which then increase your risk of heart disease, kidney stones, gallstones, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, obesity, opportunistic infections and type 2 diabetes.

1. A high-protein diet leads to osteoporosis: The myth that eating a high protein diet will cause calcium loss through the urine is simply false. Consuming plenty of high quality protein, like free-range eggs and grass-fed meats, ensures that you’ll have the amino acids your body needs to form a strong bone matrix.

My Prescription for Bone Health

These simple guidelines will help you maintain or increase your bone strength safely and naturally, without the use of drugs:

* Increase your consumption of vegetables based on your body's unique nutritional type. If you find it difficult to eat the recommended amount of vegetables you need daily, you can also try vegetable juicing. Make sure your veggies are fresh, organic, locally grown vegetables that are not genetically modified.
* Consume a healthy balance between omega-6 and omega-3 fats, and reduce or eliminate the amount of processed vegetable oils such as corn, canola, safflower, and soy.
* Eat according to your nutritional type. This will ensure that you’re getting enough nutrients for your bones, as well as helping to correct your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.
* Avoid gluten, a grain protein that has been shown to decrease bone density. Gluten is found in wheat, barley, rye, oats and spelt.
* Avoid soda and sugar, which increase bone damage by depleting your bones of calcium.
* Avoid steroids, especially if you have asthma or any other autoimmune disease. Steroids increase your risk for osteoporosis.
* Consider supplementing with vitamin K2 if you are not getting enough from food alone. Vitamin K2 serves as the biological "glue" that helps plug the calcium into your bone matrix. The dose is about 185 mcg per day.
* Get enough vitamin D, ideally from proper amounts of sun exposure. Vitamin D builds your bone density by helping your body absorb calcium.
* Exercise. Studies show that exercise is just as important to your bone health as eating a calcium-rich diet. Strength building exercises like weight training are especially helpful here.
* Consider natural progesterone[v], which can increase your bone strength. It does this by serving as a growth promoter for the osteoblasts (the cells that build bone). For more on progesterone, please review Complications Regarding Progesterone Cream

Osama bin Laden, Climate Expert

Osama bin Laden, Climate Expert

January 30, 2010
To the world’s experts on climate change, let us now add the name of Osama bin Laden to those of Al Gore; UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon; the Chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Rajendra Pachauri; numerous heads of state over the years; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi; members of Congress still trying to pass Cap-and-Trade legislation; and the odious IPCC scientists who apparently colluded to foist false data on the public in order to further the fraud of global warming.

featured stories Osama bin Laden, Climate Expert


In this quest, Obama has now been joined by Osama.

This is, of course, a short list given the vast number of people who attended the recent UN Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen. It reportedly cost the taxpayers over a million dollars for the U.S. delegation and that does not include the cost of the President’s attendance. In his State of the Union speech, Obama received a chorus of laughter when he spoke of the “overwhelming evidence” of climate change.
Bin Laden is getting increasingly desperate in his appeals to the world’s Muslims and, in a recent audiotape, “he blamed the Western industrialized nations for hunger, desertification, and floods across the globe,” according to a report by the Associated Press.
Bin Laden’s real complaint, however, has always been that he cannot replace the Saudi royal family and control that nation’s oil and the revenues that flow from it. One of the many sons of a prominent Saudi family, bin Laden went off to aid the Afghans in their fight against the Soviet Union and, ironically, it was covert American weapons aid that made their victory possible.
He could have settled for being a hero of that conflict, but like so many egomaniacs, he decided to fight the crusades over again and all subsequent Western influence in the Middle East in the name of Islam.
A succession of terrorist attacks flowed from that decision. U.S. embassies in Africa were bombed, an American warship was attacked in Yemen, and the most spectacular attack was, of course, the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. A fourth plane was brought down by its passengers.
Americans seem to have forgotten that George W. Bush responded forcefully to 9/11 and to the threat of Saddam Hussein to the entire Middle East. This is in contrast to President Obama’s futile efforts to get the Iranian ayatollahs to cooperate. Dictators are not famous for being nice.
As the AP report noted, bin Laden has mentioned climate change and global warming in past messages, but his latest on January 29 was the first to focus on it as a major theme along with the need to destroy the American economy. With regard to the latter, he seems to be getting a lot of help from President Obama who has tripled U.S. debt during the past year.
The significance of his latest audiotape seems to be a belated effort to piggyback the global warming issue at the same time it is crashing and burning worldwide due to revelations that the data on which it was based was deliberately falsified.
Claims that Himalayan glaciers were melting were false and this was made known to the IPCC Chairman Pachauri two months before the Copenhagen conference, but he managed to wait until after the conference to publicly correct the IPCC report.
Bin Laden’s bad timing suggests that his campaign is losing support. It is almost comical that he would try to enlist the support of global warming diehards in his quest to overthrow the Great Satan, America, and the Little Satan, Israel, but there is nothing comical about his continued threat to the nation and the world.
The silence of Al Gore as the planet has cooled since 1998 suggests that even he knows that his self-enrichment plan is coming to an end. Only President Obama seems or pretends to be oblivious to the idiocy of cutting “greenhouse gas emissions” in the name of a planet that is not warming.
In this quest, Obama has now been joined by Osama.

Taking Credit for Failure

January 27, 2010 | 1813 GMT

By Scott Stewart
On Jan. 24, a voice purported to be that of Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for the botched attempt to bring down Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas Day. The short one-minute and two-second audio statement, which was broadcast on Al Jazeera television, called the 23-year-old Nigerian suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab a hero and threatened more attacks. The voice on the recording said the bombing attempt was in response to the situation in Gaza and that the United States can never dream of living in peace until Muslims have peace in the Palestinian territories. The speaker also said that attacks against the United States would continue as long as the United States continued to support Israel.
While the U.S. government has yet to confirm that the voice is that of bin Laden, Al Jazeera claims that the voice is indeed that of the al Qaeda leader. Bin Laden’s health and welfare have been the topic of a lot of discussion and debate over the past several years, and many intelligence officials believe he is dead. Because of this, any time an audio recording purporting to be from bin Laden is released it receives heavy forensic scrutiny. Some technical experts believe that recent statements supposedly made by bin Laden have been cobbled together by manipulating portions of longer bin Laden messages that were previously recorded. It has been STRATFOR’s position for several years that, whether bin Laden is dead or alive, the al Qaeda core has been marginalized by the efforts of the United States and its allies to the point where the group no longer poses a strategic threat.
Now, questions of bin Laden’s status aside, the recording was most likely released through channels that helped assure Al Jazeera that the recording was authentic. This means that we can be somewhat confident that the message was released by the al Qaeda core. The fact that the al Qaeda core would attempt to take credit for a failed attack in a recording is quite interesting. But perhaps even more interesting is the core group’s claim that the attack was conducted because of U.S support for Israel and the treatment of the Palestinians living in Gaza.
Smoke and Mirrors
During the early years of al Qaeda’s existence, the group did not take credit for attacks it conducted. In fact, it explicitly denied involvement. In interviews with the press, bin Laden often praised the attackers while, with a bit of a wink and a nod, he denied any connection to the attacks. Bin Laden issued public statements after the August 1998 East Africa embassy bombings and the 9/11 attacks flatly denying any involvement. In fact, bin Laden and al Qaeda continued to publicly deny any connection to the 9/11 attacks until after the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. These denials of the 9/11 attacks have taken on a life of their own and have become the basis of conspiracy theories that the United States or Israel was behind the attacks (despite later statements by bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, that contradicted earlier statements and claimed credit for 9/11).
In the years following 9/11, the al Qaeda core has continued to bask in the glory of that spectacularly successful attack, but it has not been able to produce the long-awaited encore. This is not for lack of effort; the al Qaeda core has been involved in several attempted attacks against the United States, such as the attempted shoe-bomb attack in December 2001, dispatching Jose Padilla to the United States in May of 2002 to purportedly try to conduct a dirty-bomb attack, and the August 2006 thwarted plot to attack trans-Atlantic airliners using liquid explosives. Interestingly, while each of these failed attempts has been tied to the al Qaeda core by intelligence and investigative efforts, the group did not publicly claim credit for any of them. While the group’s leadership has made repeated threats that they were going to launch an attack that would dwarf 9/11, they simply have been unable to do so. Indeed, the only plot that could have come anywhere near the destruction of the 9/11 attacks was the liquid explosives plot, and that was foiled early on in the operational planning process — before the explosive devices were even fabricated.
Now, back to the failed bombing attempt on Christmas Day. First, the Yemeni franchise of al Qaeda, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), has already claimed responsibility for the attack, and evidence strongly suggests that AQAP is the organization with which Abdulmutallab had direct contact. Indeed, while some members of AQAP have had prior contact with bin Laden, there is little to suggest that bin Laden himself or what remains of al Qaeda’s core leadership has any direct role in planning any of the operations conducted by AQAP. The core group does not exercise that type of control over the activities of any of its regional groups. These groups are more like independent franchises that operate under the same brand name rather than parts of a single hierarchical organization. Each franchise has local leadership and is self-funding, and the franchises frequently diverge from global al Qaeda “corporate policies” in areas like target selection.
Furthermore, in an environment where the jihadists know that U.S. signals-intelligence efforts are keenly focused on the al Qaeda core and the regional franchise groups, discussing any type of operational information via telephone or e-mail from Yemen to Pakistan would be very dangerous — and terrible operational security. Using couriers would be more secure, but the al Qaeda core leadership is very cautious in its communications with the outside world (Hellfire missiles can have that effect on people), and any such communications will be very slow and deliberate. For the al Qaeda core leadership, the price of physical security has been the loss of operational control over the larger movement.
Taking things one step further, not only is the core of al Qaeda attempting to take credit for something it did not do, but it is claiming credit for an attack that did little more than severely burn the attacker in a very sensitive anatomical area. Some have argued that the attack was successful because it has instilled fear and caused the U.S. government to react, but clearly the attack would have had a far greater impact had the device detonated. The failed attack was certainly not what the operational planners had in mind when they dispatched Abdulmutallab on his mission.
This attempt by the al Qaeda core to pander for publicity, even though it means claiming credit for a botched attack, clearly demonstrates how far the core group has fallen since the days when bin Laden blithely denied responsibility for 9/11.
The Palestinian Focus
Since the beginning of bin Laden’s public discourse, the Palestinian cause has been a consistent feature. His 1996 declaration of war and the 1998 fatwa declaring jihad against the West and Israel are prime examples. However, the reality of al Qaeda’s activities has shown that, to bin Laden, the plight of the Palestinians has been less an area of genuine concern and more of a rhetorical device to exploit sympathy for the jihadist cause and draw Muslims to al Qaeda’s banner.
Over the years, al Qaeda has worked very closely with a number of militant groups in a variety of places, including the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat in Algeria, Jemaah Islamiyah in Indonesia and the East Turkestan Islamic Movement in China. However, while one of bin Laden’s mentors, Abdullah Azzam, was a Palestinian, and there have been several Palestinians affiliated with al Qaeda over the years, the group has done little to support Palestinian resistance groups such as Hamas, even though Hamas (as the Palestinian offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood) sprang from the same radical Egyptian Islamist milieu that produced al-Zawahiri’s Egyptian Islamic Jihad (EIJ), which al-Zawahiri later folded into al Qaeda.
Jihadist militant groups such as Jund Ansar Allah have attempted to establish themselves in Gaza, but these groups were seen as problematic competition, rather than allies, and Hamas quickly stamped them out.
With little help coming from fellow Sunnis, Hamas has come to rely on Iran and Iran’s Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, as sources of funding, weapons and training. Even though this support is flowing across the Shiite-Sunni divide, actions speak louder than words, and Iran and Hezbollah have shown that they can deliver. In many ways, the political philosophy of Hamas (which has been sharply criticized by al-Zawahiri and other al Qaeda leaders) is far closer to that of Iran than to that of the jihadists. With Iran’s help, Hamas has progressed from throwing rocks and firing homemade Qassam rockets to launching the longer range Grad and Fajr rockets and conducting increasingly effective irregular-warfare operations against the Israeli army.
Hezbollah’s ability to eject Israel from southern Lebanon and its strong stand against the Israeli armed forces in the 2006 war made a strong impression in the Middle East. Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas are seen as very real threats to Israel, while al Qaeda has shown that it can produce a lot of anti-Israeli rhetoric but few results. Because of this, Iran and its proxies have become the vanguard of the fight against Israel, while al Qaeda is simply trying to keep its name in the press.
Claiming credit for failed attacks orchestrated by others and trying to latch on to the fight against Israel are just the latest signs that al Qaeda is trying almost too hard to remain relevant.

Could Vancouver 2010 be the next 9/11?

Could Vancouver 2010 be the next 9/11? (UPDATED 12AM EST 1-28-10)

Posted by sakerfa on January 25, 2010

WARNING: I now believe I have reasonable grounds to suspect there may be a “false flag” attack carried out during the Olympics in Canada. The games will take place in Vancouver and Whistler from Feb. 12th until Feb. 28th. Below, I have compiled the following suspicious activity by searching and analyzing the news from various media sources and by speaking with citizens in Canada themselves.

In my opinion, an attack on the Olympics while it is being highly guarded would be the perfect way to bring in more police state measure and to more fully integrate the US and Canada into a functioning North American Union. But the question remains, is that really what is happening right now?

I hope you will look at the information and make up your own mind as to what pattern you see unfolding, any information provided is for analytical and educational purposes only and is meant to raise public awareness of current events and the potential dangers they could present.



Two tons out of 6,000 tons of Ammonium Nitrate, (a material used in making powerful explosives) have gone missing from a shipment to a storage facility in the Vancouver area from a company that was recently bought out for $22 billion by some of the world’s largest financial companies. These companies are Goldman Sachs, AIG, The Carlye Group and others. The company that was purchased is called Kinder Morgan. Kinder Morgan didn’t report the two tons missing for over a month, when they did report it they came back a week later only to say they simply made a “clerical error”. Soon after the announcement, the RCMP started their investigation and came back saying they can’t confirm that it was really accounted for. Kinder Morgan has also tried to point out that they are only one company in the chain that had contact with the shipments. 250 truckloads were reportedly sent to Dyno Nobel (an explosives company) for packaging. There were also trucking companies hired to ship the product that the RCMP is attempting to track down. To put this into perspective, it is claimed that only one ton of this material was used during the Oklahoma City bombing, and now two tons are missing. That amount is more than enough material to cause substantial damage to numerous locations. With all of this said, the question arises, who has the capability and the motive to steal two tons of Ammonium Nitrate? (Ammonium Nitrate not confirmed to be accounted for) (Kinder Morgan bought out by financial giants)

2.) The media is suddenly going wild about how Al-Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan are now using Ammonium Nitrate for explosives and the Afghani government has banned the use of the material. Afghanistan has also banned the use of Ammonium Nitrate for fertilizer due to this problem. There are many articles like these. (Al-Qaeda behind recent Ammonium Nitrate bombing) (Afghanistan bans Ammonium Nitrate fertilizer)

3.) Right on cue, as if it were a screenplay, and four days before the State of the Union address, the guy you have all heard of since 9/11, haven’t seen in a long time and who is probably dead, Mr. Usama Bin Laden ladies and gentlemen, give him a round of applause! He just came out in what is probably going to turn out to be yet another faked video and predictably praised the underwear bomber that burned his genitals in a failed bombing attempt on Christmas Day of 2009 and said the attacks will continue until we stop supporting Israel. In fact, look just how effective these guys are, they can get our freedoms taken away by our own governments, simply by penetrating our security and hurting only themselves in the process, clever aren’t they? (Bin Laden, just in time)


In a recent development Canadian parliament has been prorogued (A term where they are suspended typically in order to make new legislation and where all governmental power resides within the office of the Prime Minister.) until March 3rd (Remember that date.) after the games. The Prime Minister has also been given the sole responsibility for making the judgment call to shoot down any high jacked aircraft; normally this is not his responsibility.

This is strangely the same as before 9/11 where Dick Cheney was given control of the military air defenses for a short time due to war games being conducted, and he denied the request to shoot down the plane approaching the Pentagon. This was testified to by Transportation Secretary, Norman Mineta in front of the 9/11 Commission, though no mention of this was given in the final report you can still watch the video of his testimony. (Parliament Prorogued) (Dick Cheney on 9/11 info) (Norman Mineta before the 911 Commission) (PM in charge)

5.) On February 14th, 2008, Canada and the US signed an agreement which allows for the deployment of US troops inside Canada.

And if the military wasn’t enough, police officers are allowed to come join in now.

Headline: New maritime security law will deputize U.S. officers “in every part of Canada” during integrated operations. (North American Union anyone?)

“On November 27, Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan and Justice Minister Rob Nicholson tabled legislation that would transform designated U.S. police and security agents into peace officers equal to the RCMP “in every part of Canada” during joint maritime border operations.”

The Olympics in of 2010 will be a “joint maritime border operation”.

6.) British Columbia’s privacy office has been frozen, leaving the government unaccountable, says a leaked letter.

“Operations at the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner have ceased, leaving British Columbians with no independent office to hold the government accountable, says a leaked letter marked “Extremely Urgent” to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. The letter, sent Friday, is from the executive director of the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner, Mary Carlson, and is addressed to Bill Barisoff. She said staff have shut down the whole operation to avoid any legal issues that could arise from reviewing cabinet files or law-enforcement information. Their duties also include opening appeal files and privacy complaints, securing and reviewing records on the subject of an appeal, authorizing time extensions to respond to access requests and policing the timeliness of government responses to access requests.”

7.) Hospitals cancelled 2,400 elective surgeries to make room for apparently, much expected patients needing surgeries during the Olympics. Of course, public relations is blaming them for doing it for other reasons like saving money. They say that even if that makes no sense, because the government had no problem spending well over a billion dollars on the Olympics, they are clearly not hurting for money, even if that is what some people think.

8.) It seems that people may be getting tipped off or have prior knowledge already! What are they afraid of if the largest joint security operation ever taken on by Canada and the US is there to protect them? “Obama is not alone; presidents and prime minister of other countries around the globe are sending representatives as well.”

9.) The same Israeli company Verint, whose camera systems were on buses and the London underground and inconveniently (for us) malfunctioned on 7/7/05 during the London Bombings, was the same company to install cameras in Vancouver Airport, the subways in Montreal, and other key locations around Canada. Also, worthy of noting is that in the past, during a large terrorist attack where their systems are installed, as the DOW goes down, stocks at Verint have always shown to have gone up. They are said to be connected to the Madrid bombings on 3/11, as well as 9/11. In more interesting news about Verint’s systems,

“It appears that there is a backdoor in Verint’s system that can be accessed any time from any where. Still the U.S. continues turning the other cheek and allowing it to happen.” (Verint stock and other info) (Verint press release on Vancouver Airport contract) (Backdoor in Verint security systems) (Verint 7/7 bus camera malfunction) (Verint press release on London Underground contract)

10.) Security measures have been increased to an historic all-time high with a budget of $900 million dollars, amid financial turmoil. Security includes the foreign United States military using NORAD to secure the air, purchases of 800 CCTV security cameras, new fences, two remote submarines to check for underwater threats and even bomb sniffing dogs. Canadian military with warships, black helicopters and fighter jets have been seen floating and flying around the Vancouver area already in January causing fear to many Canadians. There will also be tens of thousands of police and private security forces who are reported to be renting schools and trailers to use as bases for their operations.

Strangely enough, regardless of the build-up of security they have undertaken and the threat of attacks, they seem to double-think and claim to not be worried about it that much and are even allowing weaknesses in security to be exploited through the media. The contracted security companies have even been hiring people with zero background in security to help run security at the games, people who will not even have enough time to train properly to do their job. (American troops ready to cross the border in the case of attack) (Big Brother at the Olympics) (Unprecedented security) (NORAD says lethal force is an option) (Law enforcement renting trailers) (Law enforcement renting elementary schools)

(Vancouver Airport Authority Not Serious About Olympic Security) (Strict airport security needed)–security-olympic-screening-assigned-to-novices (Security personnel will be novices)

11.) The corporate/government-controlled media outlets are exaggerating the threat of radical Islamic terrorism and the UK has raised the threat level to “severe”. The media is also throwing around the term “Al-Qaeda” specifically, it almost seems as if they are trying to scare people. In addition, they’ve even said there is fear of a repeat of the 1996 Atlanta bomb blast. (Afraid of a bomb) (Terror threat level raised to severe) (Al-Qaeda attacks being prepared for by the military)

*My explanation of why the media is used to scare people:

The method for control that professional mind manipulators use is referred to as “Problem, Reaction, Solution” and works using basic mind manipulation techniques, like this; first they cause a traumatic event, a good example that relates to this is 9/11. This causes people lots of grief, pain and fear, and when a traumatic event occurs, the mind naturally attempts to figuratively construct what is sometimes called an “amnesia wall” around that event to block it out, this is a way our mind helps us to deal with fear by forgetting about it. But you can’t just forget about it, you have to have a reason that behavior is acceptable in light of the present danger.

Next, the programming is set in place of who is the enemy and who can stop them. The next phase is to cause the people to recall the traumatic event(9/11/01). By suggesting and warning about the possibility it could happen again, they help to reinforce peoples’ fears of having to experience another traumatic incident.

So by causing them to access the (traumatic) memory that their conscious mind is actively trying to block out, this actually causes them to access the programming they were given after that previous traumatic event happened. The programming was set in place for what should happen next in the case that the traumatic memory is ever brought up again. Subsequently, this causes them to chase after the “hero image” (The government in this case.) that was previously set up for them to trust in to save them from ever having to experience another traumatic incident. Thus the people are willing to relinquish their freedom for security.

By doing so they are exploiting natural processes in the mind and exploiting the “Problem, Reaction, Solution” formula for control. In short, it works by creating a problem, getting the victim to respond to the problem, and providing the victim with a predetermined solution to that problem that was created for them, to bring about a desired outcome for the controller.

12.) Olympic protests are being rightly predicted to be held by people who are being labeled radicals, (Who in the public mind have begun being associated with “terrorists” and even labeled “domestic terrorists”.) some of the protesters may truly be radicals, and some have publicly stated that they will use violence to disrupt the Olympic games. Certainly though, not all of the protestors are violent extremists. That to me is suspicious as well, who would publicly call for acts of violence and destruction other than someone who is being protected? As if this isn’t enough, Vancouver Integrated Security Unit basically stated that they would not necessarily rule out using agent provocateurs in protests (another false-flag technique), that is very alarming for the peaceful protestors planning to attend. (Police won’t rule out using agent provocateurs) (Olympic protestors called terrorists) (Anti-Olympic protestor supports violent direct action)

13.) We also have some strange things happening that have proven in the past to be unusually accurate about predicting the future (Ex. Tom Clancy’s novel that predicted the incident between Russian and Georgia). Here, we find a recent novel written about the Olympics being attacked by terrorists in 2010 in Vancouver, setting the precedent that this is something possible and we should expect it and be afraid. This also is used, once again to cause us to recall a traumatic event such as 9/11 (by the Al Qaeda association) and associate it with the new potential traumatic event (Olympics attack) so the same programming about what to believe and how to act carries over. (Olympics attack novel: BC Red Snow)

14.) Another strange thing someone noticed is that we have a Hollywood movie (2012) placed in the year 2012, (a movie about the destruction of the world and the elite leaving behind the masses in protective bunkers only to save themselves) mentioning British Columbia 2010. Why was that put in there? Before 9/11 we saw 9/11 in the movies, on TV shows, in books and in video games. Someone knew a long time ago what was being planned for the future. (2012 clip) (This is an 8 part series showing the Illuminati, New World Order, Freemasonry and 9/11 in entertainment before 9/11 happened, it is very fun to watch.)

15.) I believe that there will still be hundreds of thousands of people in the area on March 3rd trying to get out using the underground rail, boats, planes and other various modes of transportation. This sets the stage as a prime target for a large death toll and mass hysteria. Locals that left on vacation will also be returning home around this time; the events officially end on Feb. 28, 2010.

Also, I want to point out something a bit strange. Notice the pattern of doubled odd numbers with each of the three previous false flag terrorism events; 3/11 in Madrid, 9/11 in New York, 7/7 in London, and possibly 3/3 in Vancouver. Could another false flag fall on March 3rd?

16.) There was a foiled “terror plot” called the “Toronto 18” in which 18 people were arrested and detained. Their plan was reportedly to behead the Prime Minister and use Ammonium Nitrate bombs to blow up targets around Canada. The leader has been sentenced to prison for life and is serving that time, but another walked away free after being sentenced 7 years in prison because of his four years already spent in jail. Why did the judge let someone who states he wants people to die to leave jail? And what has happened to the other 16 people? Could they be agents and the “ringleader” a patsy? It’s not out of the question. (Terrorism conspirator walks free) (Mastermind sentenced to life)

17.) An electrical hydro vault in downtown Vancouver also exploded recently and injured three workers while they were doing “regular maintenance”. Electrical maintenance on a thing they claim isn’t even being used for anything? Now, I don’t know about you, but that’s at least a little bit suspicious to me. Why were they working on something that isn’t even used? I find it even more suspect because in the novel that I mentioned earlier, the author calls for cutting power to certain areas in order to facilitate the terrorist attacks. None of the injured workers have been named or interviewed by anyone at all and the cause of the explosion is still “under investigation” by WorkSafe BC. Could this relate to preparations for an attack? Was it a cover for illegal things happening nearby? Or was it just an accident? (Workers injured in downtown blast)

18.) The Canadian government bought over $1 million worth of tickets, over 3,200 seats, and refuses to tell why, or who gets them, if anyone does. In some seemingly good news, some politicians are refusing to accept tickets as perks because they say it is “inappropriate”. More recently though,

“The federal and provincial governments are trying to say that the tickets are only being used to ‘advance government agendas’, as though that admission makes it sound any better.”

Now that doesn’t sound suspicious to you, does it? ($1 million in tickets purchased) (Tickets being used to advance agenda) (Government spending money on tickets raises debate)

19.) Originally, tickets were sold out in two days, prices varied but went as high as $750 per event. Soon after, those who purchased the tickets began to resell them online for higher prices, some as high as $5,000. Ticket sales at those prices have been steady for months until a couple of weeks ago. Suddenly tickets aren’t being purchased, and lots of people are selling their tickets! Tickets are now being sold at prices lower than they were originally. Usually, before an event, the price will go up, but apparently people don’t want to go now, why would that be? (As the Olympics near, people are dreading the games.)

Is it possible that after 9/11, spotting false-flag style terrorism is so much easier now that people have been educated and people have begun seen these things on their own? Is it that people don’t trust their own governments? It’s becoming very evident that people are losing trust in their governments, and they shouldn’t trust them either. There are scores of sites now popping up warning about this possible attack on the Olympics, and searching for more evidence that this could be a false-flag attack. A friend of mine in the Army at Ft. Bragg, NC said to me in recent months that he believes the US military is preparing for a false-flag attack. Now that was scary for me to hear, because he didn’t go into any more detail than that. Anything is possible, and these things are plausible. We don’t need to be afraid, we just need to get the word out, if we do, this may never happen. The reason it would happen is so it could be blamed on another entity, if they can’t do that anymore, they lose that method and have less power over us. Together by spreading the information about this, we can eliminate the threat of false flag terror take away that weapon from those who wish to exploit it and we can use this information as a weapon and turn it right back around on them. I would rather nothing happen, but if it does, we’re going to be here ready to answer why we thought it would happen, and ready to turn this event back against them. So please, join in the search for more information, check out the companies involved, check out the people involved, check their connections, check out previous false flag attacks, learn how they work and find out if anything you see this time reminds you of a previous event. Together, we can save the world, one person at a time, wake up to the world around you, and wake up those around you. Thank you.

Important Note From Brian

Hello Folks,

I've gotten a lot of emails from many of you asking for more information
about what is happening with 'free' media and rather than write
individual replies I'll just do this one so everyone can be kept up to

For those of you who may have joined this list in the past month here is
what I had written previously:

What the future holds for you is already being planned and in 2010
you'll begin to see it implemented, and it goes basically like this.

1.) Introduce a new communication medium that has the appearance to the
public of being 'free'.

2.) Use this new communication medium to destroy the previous society's
means of obtaining news and information. (Radio destroyed mass public
gatherings and tens of thousands of newspapers/Television destroyed mass
influence of Radio, further destroyed newspapers/Internet destroys
EVERYTHING and becomes the SINGLE SOURCE of news, information, music,

3.) Upon the destruction of each previous communication medium establish
greater control by consolidating into global government controlled
outlets. (Just 7 corporations control 98% of the news and entertainment

4.) Once accepted by an easily duped public, and the 'free' concept of a
new communication medium is firmly established, begin rapid destruction
of all opposition by the introduction of paid services for content. From
'free' Radio to paid Internet-Satellite Radio/ From 'free' Television to
'paid' Cable Television/From 'free' Internet to paid Internet
subscriptions for content.

Since writing this too you 'way back then' (last month actually) here's
what has been happening:

Citadel Broadcasting Corporation, one of the United States largest radio
broadcasters, files for bankruptcy

New York Times Ready to Charge Online Readers

Free broadcast TV may go way of the VHS tape

Google to limit free news access

Air America to File for Bankruptcy

These are but the 'trickle' through the 'dam' of what is going to be a
'flood' of 'free' media changes creating more restrictions and controls
to be put on what you will be allowed to know, and from whom you are
allowed to know it from.and it gets worse!

Now in order for you to fully know how worse it is going to get, you
have to first remember what it was like.and there is no better example
for you to understand this than the eighth-grade final exam given in
1895 to 13-year-old students from Salina, Kansas.see how many you can

The 13-year-old students who passed this exam went on to higher
educational levels where the classical languages (Latin and Greek) were
REQUIRED subjects. In 1900 every single high-school, collage and
university in America required at least 2 years of classical language
study, but do you know why?

Firstly because they were considered an obvious requirement for educated
people. Latin, for instance, trains your mind and memory. Unraveling a
Latin sentence is an excellent exercise in thought, a real intellectual
puzzle, and a good introduction to logical thinking. Secondly because
without one knowing the classical languages they would have no
independent way to verify the entire history of the modern world as ALL
OF IT is written in either Latin or Greek.

How many of you know either one of these classical languages? Why don't
you? Because they have been DELIBERATELY taken out of the curriculum of
your schools to keep you from knowing some of the most basic truths of
whom you are and why you are here!

But guess what? What has been done to you, your children and your
grandchildren, the elite classes WOULD NEVER DO to their children. Why
do you think they send their children to private schools in the first

One example (and there are many of them) is the Groton School, an elite
private, Episcopal, college preparatory boarding school located in
Groton, Massachusetts, US. It enrolls approximately 350 boys and girls,
from the eighth through twelfth grades. Groton is a portal to power
whose graduates trod a well-worn path to the US State Department and the's just part of the curriculum for their students..

"The curriculum in the 2nd and 3rd Forms challenges students across the
intellectual spectrum and encourages students to immerse themselves in
the basic disciplines. The definition of "basic disciplines" includes at
least two years' study of a classical language, Latin or Greek, in the
belief that this exposure will provide an ability to analyze carefully
and to synthesize various expressions of thought."§ionId=404

Now at this point you may be thinking that even though Latin and Greek
have been taken away from you at least your children and grandchildren
will always be able to read you own historical documents. You've thought

With very little exception, the entirety of all of America's historical
documents were written in Latin and English using what is called the
cursive style of writing. Cursive is any style of handwriting that is
designed for writing notes and letters quickly by hand.

In the Arabic, Latin, and Cyrillic writing systems, the letters in a
word are connected, making a word one single complex stroke. In fact,
the word comes from the Latin cursivus, meaning "flowing". Cursive is
considered distinct from the so-called "printing" (what you're reading
now) or "block letter" style of handwriting, in which the letters of a
word are unconnected, and from "print-writing".

And the most important thing about cursive writing you need to know
RIGHT NOW is that it is due to become extinct because the vast majority
of American schools are no longer teaching it to their students!
( )Even worse is that
under President Obama's "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act" over
$77 Billion was given to US schools with a 'mandate' to totally
eradicate the teaching of cursive writing in every classroom as it has
been deemed 'outmoded' for the 21st Century American Economy where the
computer will be 'king'. ( )

So here's what we have folks.for the past 100 years there has been a
deliberate plan to de-educate the American people and deny them the
ability of knowing the truth behind their history by not allowing them
to be taught the very languages they need to understand what has been
handed down to them and is their right to know. For these past 100
years the elite classes have separated their educational system from
that of the publics and continue to teach their children subjects
forbidden to those of the 'lower' classes. For these past 100 years the
ability of Americans to know the truth of what is happening in their
country and in world has been severely limited by the destruction of
'free' media to that of 'pay to know' and thus disenfranchising those
without the ability to pay from knowing the truth.

Any way you want to look at this folks is fine, but make no mistake
about it..for the past 100 years you have seen the deliberate
establishment of what is called a two-tier of masters and
slaves..which one do you belong to?

Now this is where the Sisters of Sorcha Faal come in as they not only
know the classical languages they also know the 'game plan' of these
elites and are able (should you avail yourselves of their knowledge) to
both keep you informed and educated at the same time so that you can be
as prepared and as knowledgeable as those elite classes who really think
they rule over you.

For those of you who are new to reading Sorcha Faal reports it must be
understood that their primary purpose is to stimulate those thought
processes in your own mind that your 'enemies' are also seeking to
destroy. Where the elitist propaganda media seeks to always use the
lowest common denominator so as to leave you in a position of never
daring to ever question their authority, the Sisters of Sorcha Faal
drive right to the core of the issue literally 'exploding' the perceived
meaning into each of its constituent pieces so that when lain before you
you'll be able to see the 'clear truth' for yourself without anyone
telling you.

But I'm here to remind you once again that in this war for your minds
(and make no mistake about this being a war because it is) you
absolutely must become a participant in it. And your first duty is to
help those who are protecting you. The best way you can help right now
is to go the Sisters latest appeal ( ) and give what you can so
they can keep working for you.

For those of you who have already given (and too few mind you) Thank
You. For those of you who haven't given I can only warn you that unless
you begin to help those who are helping you you're going to wake up one
day and find nothing but the trash that passes for news as your only
resource for knowledge.

So do what you can to help out folks, and (hopefully) we'll talk again
next month.

All The Best,





At least 10 years ago J J Hurtak, author of 'Keys of Enoch' showed films of this discovery at a UFO Conference in Laughlin. No one could film it as he had sworn to keep it unpublished til they were ready to release the info on it.
Sent: Tue, December 8, 2009 1:57:00 PM

Jomon (ancient northern Japanese) DNA has been found
in small colonly in S. America dating back to last ice age.




One of the greatest discoveries in the history of archaeology was made last summer, off Japan There, spread over an amazing 311 miles on the ocean floor, are the well-preserved remains of an ancient city. Or at the very least, a number of closely related sites.
In the waters around Okinawa and beyond to the small island of Yonaguni, divers located eight separate locations beginning in March 1995. That first sighting was equivocal - a provocative, squared structure, so encrusted with coral that its manmade identity was uncertain. Then, as recently as the summer of 1996, a sports diver accidentally discovered a huge, angular platform about 40 feet below the surface, off the southwestern shore of Okinawa. The feature’s artificial provenance was beyond question. Widening their search, teams of more divers found another, different monument nearby. Then another, and another. They beheld long streets, grand boulevards, majestic staircases, magnificent archways, enormous blocks of perfectly cut and fitted stone - all harmoniously welded together in a linear architecture unlike anything they had ever seen before.
In the following weeks and months, Japan’s archaeological community joined the feeding-frenzy of discovery. Trained professionals formed a healthy alliance with the enthusiasts who first made the find. In a progressive spirit of mutual respect an working alliance, academics and amateurs joined forces to set an example of cooperation for the rest of the world. Their common cause soon bore rich fruit. In september, not far from the shore of the island of Yonaguni, more then 300 airline miles south from Okinawa, they found a gigantic, pyramidal structure in 100 feet of water. In what appeared to be a ceremonial center of broad promenades and flanking pylons, the gargantuan building measures 240 feet long.
Exceptionally clear sub-surface clarity, with 100 foot visibility a common factor, allowed for thorough photographic documentation, both still photography and video. These images provided the basis of japan’s leading headlines for more than a year. Yet, not a word about the Okinawa discovery reached the US public, until the magazine, “Ancient American” broke the news last spring. Since that scoop, only the CNN network televised a report about Japan’s underwater city. Nothing about it has been mentioned in any of the nation’s other archaeology publications, not even in any of our daily newspapers. One would imagine that such a mind-boggling find would be the most exciting piece of news an archaeologist could possibly hope to learn. Even so, outside of the “Ancient American” and CNN’s single report, the pall of silence covering all the facts about Okinawa’s structures screens them from view more effectively then their location at the bottom of the sea. Why? How can this appalling neglect persist in the face of a discovery of such unparalleled magnitude? At the risk of accusations of paranoia, one might conclude that a real conspiracy of managed information dominates America’s well-springs of public knowledge.
Frank Joseph - “Ancient American”
Divers Find World's Oldest Building
by Trushar Barot
A STRUCTURE thought to be the world's oldest building, nearly twice the age of the great pyramids of Egypt, has been discovered. The rectangular stone ziggurat under the sea off the coast of Japan could be the first evidence of a previously unknown Stone Age civilisation, say archeologists.
The monument is 600ft wide and 90ft high and has been dated to at least 8000BC -- the center of the Japanese Matriarchal Jomon (braid rope) period. The oldest pyramid in Egypt, the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, was constructed more than 5,000 years later.
The structure off Yonaguni, a small island southwest of Okinawa, was first discovered 75ft underwater by scuba divers 10 years ago and locals believed it was a natural phenomenon.
Professor Masaki Kimura, a geologist at Ryukyu University in Okinawa, was the first scientist to investigate the site and has concluded that the mysterious five-layer structure was man-made. "The object has not been manufactured by nature. If that had been the case, one would expect debris from erosion to have collected around the site, but there are no rock fragments there," he said.
The discovery of what appears to be a road surrounding the building was further evidence that the structure was made by humans, he added.
Robert Schoch, professor of geology at Boston University, dived at the site last month. "It basically looks like a series of huge steps, each about a metre high. Essentially, it's a cliff face like the side of a stepped pyramid. It's a very interesting structure," he said. "It's possible that natural water erosion combined with the process of cracked rocks splitting created such a structure, but I haven't come across such processes creating a structure as sharp as this."
Further evidence that the structure is the work of humans came with the discovery of smaller underwater stone mounds nearby. Like the main building, these mini-ziggurats are made of stepped slabs and are about 10m wide and 2m high.
Kimura said it was too early to know who built the monument or its purpose. "The structure could be an ancient religious shrine, possibly celebrating an ancient deity resembling the Goddess Nirai-Kanai, whom locals say gave happiness to the people of Okinawa from beyond the sea. This could be evidence of a new culture as there are no records of a people intelligent enough to have built such a monument 10,000 years ago," he said.
"This could only have been done by a people with a high degree of technology, probably coming from the Asian continent, where the oldest civilisations originate. There would have to have been some sort of machinery involved to have created such a huge structure."
Teruaki Ishii, professor of geology at Tokyo University, said the structure dated back to at least 8000BC, the middle of the Jomon peiod, when the land on which it was constructed was submerged at the end of the last ice age. "I hope this site is artificial as it would be very exciting."
The first signs of civilisation in Japan are traced to the Neolithic period around 35,000BC, but could go back to 200,000BC. The people at this time lived as hunters and food- gatherers. There was nothing in the academic literature before to suggest the presence of a culture advanced enough to have built a structure like the ziggurat.
British archeologists are, however, cautiously enthusiastic about the discovery which will be featured this summer in a Channel 4 documentary.
Jim Mower, an archeologist at University College London, said: "If it is confirmed that the site is as old as 10,000 years and is made by the Jomon matriarchy, then this is going to change an awful lot of the previous thinking on southeast Asian history. It would put the people who made the monument on a par with the ancient civilisation of Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley."

The Kidnapping of Haiti

By John Pilger

January 27, 2010 "Information Clearing House" -- The theft of Haiti has been swift and crude. On 22 January, the United States secured “formal approval” from the United Nations to take over all air and sea ports in Haiti, and to “secure” roads. No Haitian signed the agreement, which has no basis in law. Power rules in an American naval blockade and the arrival of 13,000 marines, special forces, spooks and mercenaries, none with humanitarian relief training.

The airport in the capital, Port-au-Prince, is now an American military base and relief flights have been re-routed to the Dominican Republic. All flights stopped for three hours for the arrival of Hillary Clinton. Critically injured Haitians waited unaided as 800 American residents in Haiti were fed, watered and evacuated. Six days passed before the US Air Force dropped bottled water to people suffering thirst and dehydration.

The first TV reports played a critical role, giving the impression of widespread criminal mayhem. Matt Frei, the BBC reporter dispatched from Washington, seemed on the point of hyperventilation as he brayed about the “violence” and need for “security”. In spite of the demonstrable dignity of the earthquake victims, and evidence of citizens’ groups toiling unaided to rescue people, and even an American general’s assessment that the violence in Haiti was considerably less than before the earthquake, Frei claimed that “looting is the only industry” and “the dignity of Haiti’s past is long forgotten.” Thus, a history of unerring US violence and exploitation in Haiti was consigned to the victims. “There’s no doubt,” reported Frei in the aftermath of America’s bloody invasion of Iraq in 2003, “that the desire to bring good, to bring American values to the rest of the world, and especially now to the Middle East … is now increasingly tied up with military power.”

In a sense, he was right. Never before in so-called peacetime have human relations been as militarised by rapacious power. Never before has an American president subordinated his government to the military establishment of his discredited predecessor, as Barack Obama has done. In pursuing George W. Bush’s policy of war and domination, Obama has sought from Congress an unprecedented military budget in excess of $700 billion. He has become, in effect, the spokesman for a military coup

For the people of Haiti the implications are clear, if grotesque. With US troops in control of their country, Obama has appointed George W. Bush to the “relief effort”: a parody surely lifted from Graham Greene’s The Comedians, set in Papa Doc’s Haiti. As president, Bush’s relief effort following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 amounted to an ethnic cleansing of many of New Orleans’ black population. In 2004, he ordered the kidnapping of the democratically-elected prime minister of Haiti, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and exiled him in Africa. The popular Aristide had had the temerity to legislate modest reforms, such as a minimum wage for those who toil in Haiti’s sweatshops.

When I was last in Haiti, I watched very young girls stooped in front of whirring, hissing, binding machines at the Port-au-Prince Superior Baseball Plant. Many had swollen eyes and lacerated arms. I produced a camera and was thrown out. Haiti is where America makes the equipment for its hallowed national game, for next to nothing. Haiti is where Walt Disney contractors make Mickey Mouse pjamas, for next to nothing. The US controls Haiti’s sugar, bauxite and sisal. Rice-growing was replaced by imported American rice, driving people into the cities and towns and jerry-built housing. Years after year, Haiti was invaded by US marines, infamous for atrocities that have been their specialty from the Philippines to Afghanistan.

Bill Clinton is another comedian, having got himself appointed the UN’s man in Haiti. Once fawned upon by the BBC as “Mr. Nice Guy … bringing democracy back to a sad and troubled land”, Clinton is Haiti’s most notorious privateer, demanding de-regulation of the economy for the benefit of the sweatshop barons. Lately, he has been promoting a $55m deal to turn the north of Haiti into an American-annexed “tourist playground”.

Not for tourists is the US building its fifth biggest embassy in Port-au-Prince. Oil was found in Haiti’s waters decades ago and the US has kept it in reserve until the Middle East begins to run dry. More urgently, an occupied Haiti has a strategic importance in Washington’s “rollback” plans for Latin America. The goal is the overthrow of the popular democracies in Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador, control of Venezuela’s abundant oil reserves and sabotage of the growing regional cooperation that has given millions their first taste of an economic and social justice long denied by US-sponsored regimes.

The first rollback success came last year with the coup against President Jose Manuel Zelaya in Honduras who also dared advocate a minimum wage and that the rich pay tax. Obama’s secret support for the illegal regime carries a clear warning to vulnerable governments in central America. Last October, the regime in Colombia, long bankrolled by Washington and supported by death squads, handed the US seven military bases to, according to US air force documents, “combat anti-US governments in the region”.

Media propaganda has laid the ground for what may well be Obama’s next war. On 14 December, researchers at the University of West England published first findings of a ten-year study of the BBC’s reporting of Venezuela. Of 304 BBC reports, only three mentioned any of the historic reforms of the Chavez government, while the majority denigrated Chavez’s extraordinary democratic record, at one point comparing him to Hitler.

Such distortion and its attendant servitude to western power are rife across the Anglo-American corporate media. People who struggle for a better life, or for life itself, from Venezuela to Honduras to Haiti, deserve our support.

A majority of Americans “just said no” to getting an H1N1 influenza shot last year. The truth is, most people just didn’t buy the hype about swine flu. Perhaps it is because everyone is tired of constantly living in fear.

As Barbara Loe Fisher, president and co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, shares in the video above, those who criticized the quality and quantity of government-regulated vaccine science -- or questioned the ethics of mandatory vaccination laws -- have been marginalized by those in positions of authority.

Hopefully, 2010 will be the beginning of a fearless and fierce search for the truth about health and vaccination that will enlighten us all.

When there are clouds, there’s almost always a silver lining, and this is even true in the case of the swine flu pandemic that wasn’t.

It’s becoming increasingly clear that the swine flu pandemic of 2009 will go down as one of the biggest government and pharmaceutical scams ever. And this has not only renewed a healthy, and necessary, skepticism about the swine flu vaccine, but it has also created a more open debate about vaccinations in general.

And, really, this debate is long overdue.

As Barbara Loe Fisher, president and co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, explained above, fear was the overriding emotion of the first decade of the 21st century in the United States. And that fear drove U.S. vaccine policy even further down a black hole.

How Fear Was Used as a Political Tool to Further the Vaccine Industry Agenda

I want to make it clear that I’m not anti-vaccine, but rather pro-vaccine safety and informed consent. Unfortunately, both safety and informed consent have been largely removed from the vaccine picture in favor of one-size-fits-all policies. These policies have been further pushed and perpetuated by carefully orchestrated fear-mongering that took place over the last 10 years.

Here is just a short recap of what took place over the past decade, along with its implications on vaccine policy:


In the weeks and months following 9-11, government officials warned that terrorists might attack using smallpox, which necessitated stockpiling enough smallpox vaccine to vaccinate the entire U.S. population.

Around this same time, U.S. soldiers were forced to receive multiple doses of experimental anthrax vaccine, also due to terrorism fears.

The Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act and then the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act were passed, the latter of which expands the police powers of state health officials during a public health emergency.

Legislation was then passed that shields vaccine manufacturers, doctors and public health officials from all liability if Americans are killed or injured by experimental drugs and vaccines used during a public health emergency.

In 2009 a major campaign was launched to convince Americans to get vaccinated with an experimental swine flu vaccine, for a disease that was mild in most cases and a pandemic that was completely oversold.

Throughout all of this, media and public health officials would chastise anyone who dared to question the safety of these vaccines, or the motives driving them to market.

Now, however, the swine flu hysteria has actually opened many people’s eyes to the unsupported and unproven practices behind vaccine policies. The public is finally starting to wonder and question, en masse, what’s being injected into them and their children.

A One-Size-Fits-All Vaccine Program is Not a Safe One

The current U.S. immunization schedule calls for children to get 48 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they’re just 6 years old. By age 18, federal public health officials say they should have gotten a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines from day of birth to age 18.

This “prescription” is the same for every U.S. child, even though it’s well known that some children do not react well to this schedule, and some will actually die from it.

Tragically, most doctors are far too arrogant to even consider that there is any possibility that there might be something wrong with vaccines.

Most pediatricians are indoctrinated to simply tell parents that anything related to a bad outcome from a vaccine is a mere coincidence.

What you currently have is a one-sided policy; a way of thinking that is impossible to really allow for the appropriate debate. Science is a field where you ask a question, you find an answer, and you don’t have the biases or the influences that change the way an answer or a conclusion is made.

You just are not seeing that with vaccines.

The Proper Safety Studies Just Have Not Been Done

Most of you are well aware that if you take a drug combination, you need to watch out for harmful interactions. The greater the number of drugs you take, the higher the risk that an adverse outcome could result.

Yet, the FDA has assumed that there is no difference in giving a child one vaccine to giving them five, 10 or 14 all at once. They have simply chosen to ignore the fact that giving multiple vaccines at one time is, in fact, very different from giving just one.

Dr. Larry Palevsky, a board-certified pediatrician trained at the New York School of Medicine, explains how even many of his colleagues are unaware of the lack of safety studies surrounding vaccines:

“I think that if you ask most of my colleagues where they get their information, they will say that they read it from the American Academy of Pediatrics, from the AMA, from the CDC, and in their journals.

But I would like to challenge most of my colleagues to look through the studies themselves to actually see if the proper scientific studies were done using a proper study group and a proper control group.

Were the ingredients in vaccines properly studied?

Is there a difference between being exposed to a virus, bacteria, heavy metal or toxin through the air, food, your intestines and your skin, versus when it’s injected into your body?

Have we really looked at what happens to vaccine materials once injected into a child? Is an antibody sufficient to provide protection for a child against disease?

More and more studies are coming out to show that:


The proper studies haven’t been done

Antibodies are not the final way in which your body is protected

There is a difference between how children process material through air and food versus through injection

There are particles in vaccines that do accumulate in your body and cause impairments in your immune system

There are particles in the vaccines that get into your brain

There are foreign DNA particles that get into your body

For many health professionals it is a shock to discover that there is such a lack of information on the safety and efficacy, and a mounting degree of information that actually raises suspicions about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, and whether or not they have been properly studied.”

It’s Time to Get These Questions Answered

Health officials like those at the CDC are often unwilling to even briefly entertain the possibility of a connection to a vaccine, but there are physicians and researchers who do believe vaccines are to blame.

So isn’t it time a real, unbiased investigation was made, and these questions finally answered? For some, it is already too late. But there are generations of children, some being born as you read this, that are depending on a new conversation about vaccine science, policy, ethics and law.

One that leaves the fear of the last decade behind you; one based on real science, that takes the best interests of your child into consideration rather than what biased government planners cite as being best for society.

Show us the science and give us a choice as to whether to get a certain vaccine, and whether to risk any possible adverse reactions that might be connected with it.

That’s all you want, really, when you ask questions about vaccines, or any medical procedure, isn’t it?

And truly, isn’t that your right?

Rule by the Rich

Don't Look to Washington for Help
Rule by the Rich


The election of Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate by Democratic voters in Massachusetts sends President Obama a message. Voters perceive that Obama’s administration has morphed into a Bush-Cheney government. Obama has reneged on every promise he made, from ending wars, to closing Gitmo, to providing health care for Americans, to curtailing the domestic police state, to putting the interests of dispossessed Americans ahead of the interests of the rich banksters who robbed Americans of their homes and pensions.

But what can Obama do other then spout more rhetoric?

The Democrats were destroyed as an independent party by jobs offshoring and so-called free trade agreements such as NAFTA. The effect of "globalism" has been to destroy the industrial and manufacturing unions, thus leaving the Democrats without a power base and source of funding.

Obama and the Democrats cannot be an opposition party, because Democrats are as dependent as Republicans on corporate interest groups for campaign funding.

The Democrats have to support war and the police state if they want funding from the military/security complex. They have to make the health care bill into a subsidy for private insurance if they want funding from the insurance companies. They have to abandon the American people for the rich banksters if they want funding from the financial lobby.

Now that the five Republicans on the Supreme Court have overturned decades of U.S. law and given corporations the ability to buy every American election, Democrats and Republicans can be nothing but pawns for a plutocracy.

Most Americans are hard pressed, but the corporations have only begun to milk them.

Wars are too profitable for the armaments industry to ever end. High unemployment is now a permanent state in the U.S., thus coercing job seekers into military service.

The security industry profits from the police state and regards civil liberties as a hindrance to profits. By announcing that he intends to continue the Bush policy of indefinite detention, a violation of the Constitution and U.S. legal procedures, Obama has granted the Democratic Party’s consent to the Republicans’ destruction of habeas corpus, the main bastion of individual liberty.

Jobs offshoring is too profitable for U.S. corporations for Obama to be able to save American jobs and restart the broken economy.

Americans are being squeezed out of health care not only by the loss of job benefits, but also by corporate takeover of medical practice from physicians. Today medical doctors are wage slaves of corporate health providers that leverage doctors by turning them into supervisors of physician assistants, lower paid people without medical degrees who perform the services that doctors once provided. As neither doctor nor physician assistant has any independence, there is no one to represent the patient’s care against the profits of the corporation.

Even environmental concerns are being used to create "cap and trade" rights to buy and sell the ability to pollute. Wall Street is licking its lips over a new source of leveraged derivative instruments.

The American public cannot even get reliable information about their plight as the "mainstream media" has been concentrated into a few corporate hands that do not permit independent reporting. The media is as dependent on corporate money as are politicians.

How can President Obama restart an economy that has been moved offshore? Millions of manufacturing jobs are gone, as are millions of jobs for college graduates, such as software engineering, Information Technology--indeed, any intellectual skill the product of which can be conveyed via the Internet. Even those intellectual skill jobs that do remain in the U.S. are filled increasingly by foreigners brought in on work visas.

The wipeout of blue collar and middle class job growth has stopped the growth of American incomes except, of course, those of the super rich. For a decade American consumers substituted increased personal indebtedness for income growth. In order to maintain and to increase their consumption, Americans consumed their assets, such as their home equity. Americans reached their maximum debt load just as the real estate bubble burst and just as the banksters highly-leveraged, toxic financial instruments brought down the stock market and the values of Americans’ pensions.

The enormous damage done to the U.S. economy by jobs offshoring, work visas, and financial deregulation cannot be offset by government stimulus plans, which expand the debt burdens that are crushing Americans. The federal government’s massive budget deficits and the Federal Reserve’s easy monetary policy are setting the stage for an inflationary depression to follow a deflationary depression.

The Federal Reserve chairman says not to worry about inflation, because the Fed can take the money back out of the economy. But can the Fed take the money out without contracting the economy?

The Federal Reserve says not to worry about financing the federal budget deficit. Banksters are buying the Treasury bonds with the proceeds from their sales of their toxic derivatives to the Fed.

So what is happening to the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet? And when will the Fed have no recourse but to print new money in order to finance the federal deficit?

How long can the dollar retain its reserve currency role in such circumstances, and how does the U.S. pay for its imports when this role is lost?

Don’t look to Washington for answers to these questions.

Perhaps it is time to get out of the UN and give the tax savings back to the American workers who are having to skimp and sacrifice to pay the taxes (and gasoline).

Pass this along to every taxpaying citizen you know.

Disgusting isn't it?
