The ‘assassination’ of former Polish President Lech Kaczynski: Who benefits?

Jaroslaw Kaczynski – the twin brother of Lech Kaczynski, the former Polish president who was killed in a plane crash in Russia in April 2010 – has recently spoken out and stated that his brother’s death is looking increasingly like an assassination. Currently head of Poland’s Law and Justice party, Jaroslaw had already previously suggested that the incident, from which there were no survivors, may not have been a pure accident. But his latest comments have gone even further. Calling for the Brussels EU to investigate, as quoted by the Associated Press, he has now openly suggested that “if there were explosions (on board the plane), if this catastrophe looks increasingly like an assassination, then this means there is a new quality to international politics.”

Dr. Raths Call to the People of Germany and Europe

At a Cancer Free World conference in Berlin, Germany, on 13th March 2012, Dr. Rath called on the people of Germany and Europe to take responsibility for building a democratic Europe for the People and by the People. Describing how widely available scientific research on natural remedies already makes it clear that the incidence of common diseases can now be reduced to a fraction of their current occurrence, he explained how the building of a new global health care system, based on the prevention and elimination of diseases, is now possible. Dr. Rath stressed, however, that this stunning "world without disease" will not be handed to us on a plate, because each disease represents a billion dollar market for the Pharma Cartel and its political stakeholders in the Brussels EU politburo. As such, if we want to create a world without disease for us and our children, we must all act now.
