It should be the scandal of the century. It potentially affects the health of almost everyone. Healthcare providers and consumers alike should be up in arms. But apart from coverage in a few credible news sources the problem of 'Marketing Based Medicine,' as psychiatrist Dr Peter Parry terms it, hasn't as yet generated the kind of universal outrage one might expect.

Comment: The pharmaceutical “business with disease” is the largest deception and fraud business in human history. Instead of delivering health, the patented chemical drugs produced by this investment industry most often result in the exact opposite: new diseases and frequently, death.

Monsanto’s GMO Food and its Dark Connections to the “Military Industrial Complex”

July 3, 2014

Monsanto, the world’s largest genetically modified (GM/GMO) seed producer, has been at the centre of controversy for decades as evidence of the harmful effects on humans of GM foods continues to mount. Joined with the likes of DuPont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred International and Syngenta, Monsanto and partners comprise the corporate nexus of Big-Agri, where the control over our food supply is increasingly transferred into the hands of private trans-national corporations as opposed to local farmers and governments.

What to know before you spray your lawn with pesticides

July 7, 2014

This is the time of year when pesticides get sprayed on lawns, parks and golf courses. Though the goal may be to make these green spaces more pleasant places to play — fewer bugs, fewer weeds — these treatments may not be as safe as you assume. Most people are “not aware of the hazards that the unthinking use of pesticides poses to their children,” says Philip Landrigan, dean for global health and a professor of pediatrics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

Taking Britain’s Communications and Intelligence Agency (GCHQ) to Court: The Legal Claim Against Surveillance

July 7, 2014

Can you take a signals intelligence agency to court, or at the very least, something approximating to it? Various bodies have been putting their minds together, considering the formidable obstacles, the endless riddling hoops. Last week, they lodged a claim1 before Britain’s Investigatory Powers Tribunal against both the UK’s GCHQ and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), arguing that the former’s targeting of Internet service providers was illegal, destructive and retarding of the goodwill such providers rely upon.

Italy to push for 'United States of Europe' when it holds the EU presidency

June 22, 2014

Matteo Renzi, the Italian prime minister, has said that Italy will push for a "United States of Europe" during its six-month EU presidency.
Read article in the Daily Telegraph (UK)

Comment: The creation of a “United States of Europe” dictatorship under the control of the Oil and Drug Cartel has long been a key goal of the Brussels EU. Notably therefore, back in the 1950s a group founded by Jean Monnet was specifically known as the “Action Committee for the United States of Europe”. This Committee’s ultimate goal, as stated at its inception, was “to arrive by concrete achievements at the United States of Europe.” One of the long-serving members of the committee’s Executive Committee was the German Kurt Georg Kiesinger, who sat on it between January 1956 and May 1965. Kiesinger had been a member of the Nazi Party (his Nazi-Party NSDAP-Membership number was 2633930) and he had worked in the Nazi Foreign Ministry's radio propaganda division during WWII. He later became Chancellor of West Germany, a post he held from 1966 to 1969. Other notable members included the Italian Aldo Moro, its political secretary between May 1959 and December 1962. Leading up to WWII, Moro had been a member of the Fascist University Organization (Gioventù Universitaria Fascista), a group sponsored by Mussolini's Fascist Party. He eventually became Prime Minister of Italy, a post he held twice, from 1963 to 1968 and from 1974 to 1976. You can learn more about the “Action Committee for the United States of Europe” in chapter 6 of our book, “The Nazi Roots of the ‘Brussels EU’”.
