Monsanto’s Friends in High Places

Many companies hope to send an employee into a government agency to influence regulation. How much better if the employee can actually shape government regulation to promote and sell a specific product! Monsanto seems to have accomplished this — and much more. Michael Taylor is among a number of people with Monsanto ties who have worked in government in recent years. He worked for the Nixon and Reagan Food and Drug Administration in the 1970s, then became a lawyer representing Monsanto. In 1991, he returned to the FDA as Deputy Commissioner for Policy under George H. W. Bush, and helped … Continue reading Monsanto’s Friends in High Places

Marijuana Miracle: 5 Exciting New Discoveries About Pot

The discovery of pot’s astonishing medical potential is the most compelling new reason for legalizing the plant. For many years, the federal government has subsidized studies designed to prove the negative effects of marijuana, while blocking inquiry into its potential benefits. Ironically, the government’s steadfast search for harm has yielded remarkable scientific insights that explain why cannabis is such a versatile remedy and why it is the most sought-after illicit substance on the planet. Cannabis and the unique chemical compounds produced by the plant, called cannabinoids, have been at the center of one of the most exciting—and underreported—developments in modern … Continue reading Marijuana Miracle: 5 Exciting New Discoveries About Pot

DARPA To Spend $70 Million Investigating Brain Implants

The ostensible purpose is to better treat mental illness, but I think we all know what the experimental research wing of the military’s real motives are. As reported by the Boston Globe: The federal Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, known as DARPA, announced Thursday that it intended to spend more than $70 million over five years to jump to the next level of brain implants, either by improving deep brain stimulation or by developing new technology. The new program, called Systems-Based Neurotechnology and Understanding for the Treatment of Neuropsychological Illnesses, is part of an Obama administration brain initiative that is … Continue reading DARPA To Spend $70 Million Investigating Brain Implants

What ONE TRILLION dollars looks like in dollar bills…

Have you ever though about it. What would 1 trillion dollars look like, layed out in front of you? I mean, these numbers numbers are tossed around like doggie treats. So I thought I’d take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like. We’ll start with a $100 dollar bill. Currently it’s the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation. Pretty much, everyone has seen a $100 bill. But fewer have owned them. 🙂 They’re also guaranteed to make friends wherever you go! http://www.dailycognition.com/index.php/2009/03/25/what-1-trillion-dollars-looks-like-in-dollar-bills.html Continue reading What ONE TRILLION dollars looks like in dollar bills…

CNN Airs Outrageous Lies About Nuclear Energy

Pandora’s Propaganda By Dick Allgire Honolulu 11-8-13   I happened to catch the CNN special program “Pandora’s Promise” last night. CNN has reached a new zenith of falsehood and fabrication. In the final days of the US invasion of Iraq the world chuckled at the ridiculous utterances of the Iraqi Information Minister Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf. “Baghdad Bob,” as he came to be known, gained prominence for his ridiculous declarations. His words were so pathetically false they were actually humorous. CNN (our own Ministry of Truth) has broadcast a documentary that rivals Baghdad Bob for knee-slapping false information; lies, fiction and … Continue reading CNN Airs Outrageous Lies About Nuclear Energy

The US Power Grid Failure: It’s When, Not If

The evidence is mounting by the day. The United States is on the verge of a power grid failure. It seems that everyone in the “club” knows this fact except for you and me. Who could forget when George Carlin once reminded us that, “We ain’t in the ____ club”. Maybe we should pay attention to what the members of the “club” are saying. My overwhelming fear for my fellow Americans is that the power grid will fail, as some important people are predicting, and millions of us will be unprepared. We could experience massive civil unrest and be forced … Continue reading The US Power Grid Failure: It’s When, Not If

The Invention of the Jewish People

A historical tour de force, the amazing book “The Invention of the Jewish People” offers a groundbreaking account of Jewish and Israeli history. Exploding the myth that there was a forced Jewish exile in the first century at the hands of the Romans, Israeli historian Shlomo Sand argues that most modern Jews descend from converts, whose native lands were scattered across the Middle East and Eastern Europe. In this iconoclastic work, which spent nineteen weeks on the Israeli bestseller list and won the coveted Aujourd’hui Award in France, Sand provides the intellectual foundations for a new vision of Israel’s future. … Continue reading The Invention of the Jewish People

Yes… Arafat was Poisoned and Israel Killed Him, But What Can We Do?

We are surprised by the silence of the Palestine Authority (PA) and their continuation with the negotiations, not only after discovering this crime and Israel’s role in it. Especially as settlement activity continues at an unprecedented rate… There are three countries in the world that possess the radioactive polonium used to assassinate the Palestinian president Yasser Arafat; the United States, Russia and Israel. The two superpowers had no direct benefit from committing this war crime. So, fingers are now pointed at Israel, the country that has specialised in carrying out assassination operations against Arabs, Palestinians and international envoys over the … Continue reading Yes… Arafat was Poisoned and Israel Killed Him, But What Can We Do?
