Evidence The War OF Terror
- Senate Bill to Force Citizens to Register Cash Not in a Bank, Violators Get 10 Years in Prison
A new bill seeks to track your money and assets incessantly, will enjoin any business with government ties to act as a de facto arm of DHS, and would steal all of your assets — including Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies — should you fail to report funds when traveling with over $10,000.
Under the guise of combating money laundering, Senate Bill 1241, “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017,” ramps up regulation of digital currency and other autocratic financial controls in an attempt to ensure none of your assets can escape one of the State’s most nefarious, despised powers: civil asset forfeiture.
All of this under the farcically broad umbrella of fighting terrorism.
Civil forfeiture grants the government robbery writ large: your cash, property, and assets can be stolen completely sans due process, your guilt — frequently pertaining to drug ‘crimes’ — matters not.
A court verdict of not guilty doesn’t even guarantee the return of State-thefted property.
In fact, the government can seize virtually whatever it wants if it so much as suspects some of your assets might have been acquired through or used in the commission of even lesser crimes.
For some time, a war on cash has been brewing behind the closed doors of government, and — although officials prefer to claim counterfeiting, terrorism, and money laundering as the impetus for asset tracking — in actuality, physical currency facilitates black market and untaxed transactions, and, most imperatively to the U.S., cannot be thefted under civil asset forfeiture laws as easily as money exchanged digitally.
Characterized as an effort to “to improve the prohibitions on money laundering, and for other purposes,” the bill severely curtails the right to travel freely, without undue hindrance, as travelers with more than $10,000 in assets — including those held digitally, like Bitcoin — must file a report with the U.S. government.
- ISUS deploys mobile artillery rocket launchers in Syria
The United States has deployed mobile artillery rocket launchers in southern Syria, aiming to defend its At-Tanaf base where it trains anti-Islamic State forces, Pentagon officials confirmed Thursday.
Officials would not say how many of the HIMARS units, a truck-mounted multiple rocket launch system, had been moved into the area.
But the deployment came after forces backing the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad moved into an established “de-confliction” zone close to the At-Tanaf garrison inside the southern Syria border weeks ago, creating a new threat.
The move sparked a protest from Russia, which supports Assad and said the HIMARS system would be used against Syrian government forces.
“Deploying any type of foreign weapons on Syrian territory… must be approved by the government of the sovereign country,” Russia’s defense ministry said.
“Forces of the US-led anti-IS coalition have repeatedly issued strikes on Syrian government forces fighting IS near the Jordanian border.”
“It’s not hard to guess that similar strikes will be continued against contingents of the Syrian army in the future using HIMARS,” it said.

- MonSatan Spin Doctors Target Cancer Scientist in Flawed Reuters Story
In a well-orchestrated and highly coordinated media coup, Monsanto Co. and friends this week dropped a bombshell on opponents who are seeking to prove that the company’s beloved Roundup herbicide causes cancer.
A widely circulated story published June 14 in the global news outlet Reuters (for which I formerly worked) laid out what appeared to be a scandalous story of hidden information and a secretive scientist, “exclusive” revelations that the story said could have altered a critical 2015 classification that associated Monsanto’s Roundup to cancer and triggered waves of lawsuits against Monsanto.
It was a blockbuster of a story, and was repeated by news organizations around the globe, pushed by press releases from Monsanto-backed organizations and trumpeted by industry allies like the American Chemistry Council.
It was also flawed and misleading in a number of critical respects.
Authored by Reuters’ reporter Kate Kelland, who has a history of cozy relations with a group partly funded by agrichemical company interests, the piece accused a top epidemiologist from the U.S. National Cancer Institute of failing to share “important” scientific data with other scientists as they all worked together assessing the herbicide glyphosate for the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). That group reviewed a wide body of research on glyphosate and determined in March of 2015 that the pesticide should be classified as a probable human carcinogen. Had the group known of this missing data, it’s conclusion could have been different, according to Reuters.
The story was particularly timely given glyphosate and Roundup are at the center of mass litigation in the United States and under scrutiny by U.S. and European regulators. After the IARC classification, Monsanto was sued by more than 1,000 people in the United States who claim they or their loved ones got non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) from exposure to Monsanto’s glyphosate-based Roundup and the company and the cases could start going to trial next year. Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world and brings in billions of dollars a year for Monsanto. The company insists the IARC classification is meritless and the chemical is proven safe by decades of research.
So yes, it was a big story that scored big points for Monsanto in the debate over glyphosate safety. But. drilling deeply into the sourcing and selective nature of the Reuters piece makes it clear the story is not only seriously flawed, but that it is part of an ongoing and carefully crafted effort by Monsanto and the pesticide industry to discredit IARC’s work.
The story contains at least two apparent factual errors that go to the credibility of its theme. First the story cites “court documents” as primary sources when in fact the documents referred to have not been filed in court and thus are not publicly available for reporters or members of the public to access. Kelland does not share links to the documents she references but makes it clear her information is largely based on a deposition from Aaron Blair, the National Cancer Institute epidemiologist who chaired the IARC working group on glyphosate, as well as related emails and other records. All were obtained by Monsanto as part of the discovery process for the Roundup litigation that is pending in federal court in San Francisco. By citing court documents, Kelland avoided addressing whether or not Monsanto or its allies spoon-fed the records to her. And because the article did not provide a link to the Blair deposition, readers are unable to see the full discussion of the unpublished study or the multiple comments by Blair of many other studies that do show evidence of links between glyphosate and cancer. I’m providing the deposition here, and disclosing that I requested and obtained it from attorneys involved in the Roundup litigation after Kelland’s story was published.
It would be naive to think that the FDA endeavors to protect the public’s health as its primary focus. Indeed, that would be a conflict of interest, as it serves its master, the pharmaceutical industry. Has the Food and Drug Administration engineered a shortage of intravenous vitamin C as part of an overall attack on natural and non-toxic approaches to healing that compete with prescription drugs? An analysis by Natural Blaze would suggest that the answer is yes.
Natural Blaze claims that a critical shortage of IV bags, in general, followed an FDA ban on the mass production of intravenous vitamin C. The FDA limited the availability of IV-C and the pharmaceutical industry halted production of injectable vitamins and minerals, after a 60 minute story about the miraculous recovery of a swine flu patient on life support. Because of the shortage of IV-C, doctors called upon compounding pharmacies to produce it. But the FDA began to limit compounding pharmacies after injectable steroids produced by the New England Compounding Center were contaminated with a fungus that caused a deadly outbreak of meningitis. Here is an example of an entire industry being punished for the dubious practices of one compounding pharmacy.
Try and follow this convoluted story: Doctors began to source NECC for its more expensive product because cheaper generic versions were in short supply. But it was the FDA’s increased inspection of drug factories that disrupted the supply chain in the first place. So the meningitis deaths were in part caused by the onerous actions of the FDA.
- A Norfolk doctor found a treatment for sepsis. Now he’s trying to get the ICU world to listen.
The patient was dying.
Valerie Hobbs, 53, was in the throes of sepsis – an infection coursing through her veins that was causing her blood pressure to tank, her organs to fail and her breathing to flag.
“When you have a person that young who’s going to die, you start thinking, ‘What else can we pull out of the bag?’ ” said Dr. Paul Marik, who was on duty that day in the intensive care unit of Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
In this case, he reached for Vitamin C.
Marik, chief of pulmonary and critical care at Eastern Virginia Medical School, had recently read medical journal articles involving the vitamin, and decided to order IV infusions of it, along with hydrocortisone, a steroid, to reduce inflammation.
Then, he went home.
The next morning, Hobbs had improved so much she was removed from four different medications used to boost her blood pressure. Her kidney function was better. Her breathing eased.
Three days later, she left the ICU.
That was in January 2016. Today, Hobbs is back at her home in Norfolk.
“At first we thought it was a coincidence, that maybe the stars aligned just right and she got lucky,” Marik said.
Ten days later, another patient, a paraplegic, arrived in the ICU with sepsis, and Marik prescribed the same thing. That patient improved as well.
A third patient, a man so sick with pneumonia he was on a ventilator, also received the treatment. The results were the same.
Marik’s response: “What just happened?”
He suggested changing the protocol for patients who arrived with sepsis. He also added another ingredient to the concoction: thiamine, which is Vitamin B.
At first, doctors and nurses were skeptical.
Kathi Hudgins, a critical care nurse for 23 years, confesses she doubted Marik’s idea: “I thought it was too simplistic.”
Soon, she was sold.
“We started having patient after patient have these remarkable results,” she said. “They’d be at death’s door and 24 to 48 hours later, they had turned around. We have seen patients walk out of here we didn’t think would leave. To see them turn around so quickly was nothing short of amazing.”
They started tracking the numbers, comparing them with patients who came through the ICU with sepsis the previous year.
A study published online in December by CHEST, an American College of Chest Physicians medical journal, revealed the results:
In 47 patients with sepsis treated in Norfolk General’s ICU, four died in 2016, an 8 percent mortality rate. Of those four, none died of sepsis but rather the conditions that led to sepsis in the first place. The previous year, 19 of 47 septic patients died, a 40 percent mortality rate.
Medical residents started calling the concoction “miracle juice.” Marik dubbed it “the cure for sepsis.”
- ‘Game Changer’: Study Finds 100-year-old Drug Reverses Autism Symptoms in Kids
According to a revolutionary new study, a drug discovered more than a century ago may hold the key to combating the symptoms of autism. After just one dose, parents of the children in the study watched their kids make incredible improvements, with some speaking for the first time.
The study’s lead researcher, Dr. Robert Naviaux of the San Diego School of Medicine is an internationally known expert in human genetics, inborn errors of metabolism, metabolomics, and mitochondrial medicine. He is the discoverer of the cause of Alpers syndrome — the oldest Mendelian form of mitochondrial disease — and the developer of the first DNA test to diagnose it. Naviaux is, by far, one of the most qualified people in the world to conduct this study.
During his research, Naviaux noted the transformative results of the drug suramin which was first developed in 1916 and used as an anti-parasitic drug for treating African sleeping sickness and river blindness. After giving a single dose of suramin to boys with autism, between the ages of five and 14, Naviaux recorded something incredible — their symptoms were significantly alleviated.
“After the single dose, it was almost like a roadblock had been released,” he said. “If the future studies show that there’s continued health benefits, this could be a game-changer for families with autism.”
The study was published in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology. During the study, five children were given suramin, while the remainder were given placebos. Included in the group were four non-verbal children, two 6-year-olds, and two 14-year-olds.
“The six-year-old and the 14-year-old who received suramin said the first sentences of their lives about one week after the single suramin infusion,” Naviaux told the UC San Diego Health website. “This did not happen in any of the children given the placebo.”
One parent, who noted that her son had not spoken a full sentence in more than a decade, said, “Within an hour after the infusion, he started to make more eye contact with the doctor and nurses in the room. There was a new calmness at times, but also more emotion at other times.”
He started to show an interest in playing hide-and-seek with his 16-year-old brother. He started practicing making new sounds around the house. He started seeking out his dad more.
Naviaux’s expertise led him to the theory that there is a fundamental metabolic problem in all people with ASD — namely, that cells in affected people experience abnormal levels of something that Naviaux has termed the “cell danger response” (CDR), according to Seeker.
The CDR, Naviaux explained to Seeker, happens when a cell responds to external stressors or toxins. He describes this process as the cell hardening its membranes, ceasing interaction with neighbors, and withdrawing into itself until the danger has passed.
Naviaux believes that the CDR process gets stuck in children with autism, and that it can permanently alter how the cells interact with their external environment. When this happens in early child development, Naviaux believes it results in the development of autism and various other chronic childhood disorders.
The trial aimed to “un-stick” the CDR cycle using an infusion of an old drug called suramin, which was first developed in 1916 to treat parasitic diseases, including African sleeping sickness (trypanisomiasis) and river blindness (onchocerciasis).
Suramin is also the only drug used in humans that can “inhibit extracellular ATP signaling,” Naviaux said, giving cells that are stuck in the CDR cycle the “all-clear signal” that they need to continue with their normal development.
“Suramin produced the most dramatic improvement in autism symptoms that we have ever seen with anything we have tried,” one parent of a child in the study wrote.
Suramin is a medication used to treat African sleeping sickness and river blindness. It is the treatment of choice for sleeping sickness without central nervous system involvement. It is given by injection into a vein.
Suramin causes a fair number of side effects. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, skin tingling, and weakness. Sore palms of the hands and soles of the feet, trouble seeing, fever, and abdominal pain may also occur. Severe side effects may include low blood pressure, decreased level of consciousness, kidney problems, and low blood cell levels. It is unclear if it is safe when breastfeeding.
Suramin was made at least as early as 1916. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system. In the United States it can be acquired from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The cost of the medication for a course of treatment is about 27 USD. In regions of the world where the disease is common suramin is provided for free by the World Health Organization.
Suramin is used for treatment of human sleeping sickness caused by trypanosomes. Specifically, it is used for treatment of first-stage African trypanosomiasis caused by Trypanosoma brusei rhodesiense without involvement of central nervous system. It is considered second-line treatment for early-stage disease due to its side effects.
Consensus-Science Fails Again
- What A Mess! Spiegel Reveals Scientists Don’t Know Real Temperature Of The Planet
The Germany-based European Institute For Climate and Energy (EIKE) alerts here that it is now obvious nobody really knows what the real mean global temperature is, and that claims that the planet is the hottest it’s been since measurements began are not making any sense.
In 1995 it was 15.4°C. Today we are told it is 14.8°C – a new record!
For decades it had been assumed that the globe’s normal 20th century mean temperature was 15°C. But suddenly this year it is reported all over the media that 2016 reached a new record: 14.8°C!
14.8°C in 2016?
In 1995 Spiegel and many others, citing James Hansen, reported that the global temperature had reached a “record” 15.4°C!
This led EIKE Vice President Michael Limburg to write: “The warmest year since the start of measurements is revealed to be significantly cooler than the 1995 mean value, which was 15.4°C.”
Readers by now are certainly asking themselves what the hell is going on here!
It turns out that researchers of the Klimamanifestes von Heiligenroth put out a video that examines the absolute temperature value of the globe instead of the anomaly. And what they found in the literature, Limburg writes, “is something astonishing“:
The hottest year ever 2016 (14.8°C) is in fact 0.6°C cooler than 1995 (15.4°C)!
The video here sums up the history of the normal absolute global mean temperature, which for decades had been in fact assumed to be 15°C. Here’s the chronology of what literature kept stating in the past:

- O’neil v. Dept. of Professional & Vocational Standards
“[Civ. No. 10276. Second Appellate District, Division Two. June 5, 1935.]
JOHN J. O’NEIL, Appellant, v. DEPARTMENT OF PROFESSIONAL AND VOCATIONAL STANDARDS et al, Respondents.
John E. McCall for Appellant.
U.S. Webb, Attorney-General, and Eugene M. Elson, Deputy Attorney-General, for Respondents.
Stephens, P. J.,
This is an appeal from a judgment of the superior court in a writ of review sued out against the “Department of Professional and Vocational Standards, Carlos W. Huntington, Registrar of Contractors and Isabel Lambert”. The matter here is upon the amended petition.
Title 130-a, Act 1660, General Laws, Deering’s 1933 Supplement, sets up an elaborate system of licensing general contractors and places its administration under the jurisdiction of, and creates a bureau within the Department of Professional and Vocational Standards (sec. 377, Pol. Code) which shall be known as the contractor’s license bureau. A “registrar” and “deputy registrar” of contractors is authorized (sec. 4). To obtain a license under the act, application must be made setting forth certain detail and no license is issued until and unless the applicant has satisfied the “registrar” of his integrity and fitness (sec. 5). All licenses expire on the last day of June of each year and renewals may be had (sec. 7). The registrar is authorized to initiate or to entertain upon a verified complaint an investigation looking to the suspension or permanent revocation of such license for certain causes (sec. 9). The instant case was started before the registrar by the filing of a complaint against petitioner by Isabel Lambert [7 Cal. App. 2d 397] alleging various causes of complaint in petitioner’s execution of a dwelling contract that had theretofore been entered into between them. The prayer for relief is general in nature. The hearing was had before a “District Supervisor”, the testimony was reduced to writing and such district supervisor made “Findings and Recommendation”. Under such heading the district supervisor found certain facts alleged to be true and recommended that petitioner be “found guilty and his name be flagged in Sacramento, and that no renewal of license or new license be issued until such time as the Registrar of Contractors is satisfied that he is worthy of having a contractor’s license”. Apparently, though this does not definitely appear, this report reached the “Registrar of Contractors”, who made a decision in conformity with such recommendation.
From the first, petitioner objected to any proceedings upon the ground that there was no jurisdiction therefor and he offered no evidence, although he answered questions put to him by the “District Supervisor”. One ground as to jurisdiction was that petitioner was not at the time of the proceeding a licensed contractor and it is not claimed that he was. His license had expired and he had not asked its renewal. Another ground is that the whole matter was the subject of a pending lawsuit in which the complainant was plaintiff and petitioner defendant. Petitioner alleges that such suit has been determined in his favor. This seems to be undenied.
The superior court entered the following order as a judgment: “It is therefore ordered, adjudged and decreed that the order of said respondents heretofore made finding petitioner guilty of the violation of subdivisions 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 10 of Section 9 of the Contractor’s License Law of the State of California (Stats. 1929, Chap. 791, as amended; Stats. 1933, Chap. 573) be, and the same is hereby affirmed.”
This judgment omits the penalty and therefore does not completely conform to the decision of the registrar who apparently realized that the act only authorized the revocation or suspension of a license in existence. The registrar’s decision provided that petitioner was guilty of charges made and that defendant be “flagged” in Sacramento so that he could get no renewal or new license until the “Registrar of Contractors [7 Cal. App. 2d 398] is satisfied that he is worthy of having a contractor’s license”.
Although the point is not raised, neither the source nor the authority of the officer designated as “District Supervisor” is clear. Throughout the act it is provided that the registrar (he is allowed deputy registrars) shall hear complaints.
We think it is clear that neither the Department of Professional Standards nor the bureau nor the officers provided for by the act herein under consideration, nor any other official acquired any jurisdiction of petitioner to consider or make any order and that the order made is null and void. This, of course, because petitioner herein was not a licensed contractor at the time of the proceeding which is a precedent necessity before any action is authorized.
The judgment of the superior court is reversed with direction that it adjudge and decree that the order made by the Registrar of Contractors be declared null and void for lack of jurisdiction.
Crail, J., concurred.
