As Overdose Deaths Soar To Record Highs, FDA Approves New Painkiller That's 1,000X More Powerful Than Morphine

Purdue Pharma and other pioneers of powerful opioid painkillers probably felt a twinge of regret on Friday when the FDA approved a powerful new opioid painkiller that's 10 times stronger than fentanyl - the deadly synthetic opioid that's been blamed for the record number of drug overdose deaths recorded in 2017 - and 1,000 times more powerful than morphine, ignoring the objections of lawmakers and its own advisory committee in the process.

After all that trouble that purveyors of opioids like Purdue and the Sackler family went to in order to win approval -doctoring internal research and suborning doctors to convince the FDA to approve powerful painkillers like OxyContin despite wildly underestimating the drug's abuse potential - the agency might very well have approved those drugs any way? And opioid makers might have been able to avoid some of the legal consequences stemming from this dishonesty, like the avalanche of lawsuits brought by state AGs.

SmartVine First Ever Glyphosate Residue Free Certified Wine

Sustainable Pulse interview with Christine Fitzgerald, Owner of SmartVine, the first ever Glyphosate Residue Free certified wine.

When did your company start to produce wine and what was your inspiration to launch SmartVine?

My company started producing wine in 2018, with our first orders going out in October.

My background in health and fitness drove this brand launch. As a nutritionist for the past 20 years, I quickly noticed that my clients loved their wine, and they couldn’t be told to give it up… no matter what! The problem was that it was screwing up their diet...

Toxic Vaccine Adjuvants & Ingredients: The Top 10

Toxic vaccine adjuvants and ingredient are not emphasized enough in the debate over the safety of vaccines. The medical establishment, which has essentially been wed to Big Pharma ever since its inception by the Rockefellers, routinely downplays the idea that these adjuvants are quite harmful. In reality, many are known carcinogens. Western medicine also tends to makes the excuse that it is a case of “benefit vs. risk”, and that the benefit outweighs the risk – but does it really, given the ton of natural alternative remedies and the fact that these adjuvants can get stuck in your body forever? I have listed 10 of the most common toxic vaccine adjuvants below, and after reading about each one, please consider whether you think we can accurately call vaccines “good medicine”, given that these 10 adjuvants are being injected directly into the bloodstream (thus bypassing the digestive filters) of every vaccine patient who receives them.

Judge: Son was ‘insane’ when he stabbed father dead in Gwinnett

Testimony shows the family helped him seek treatment, but he stopped taking his regular medication for about a month before he attacked his father on Nov. 5, 2014. He had, however, taken a new medicine that day: Vyvanse, a stimulant used to treat ADHD, which the defense argued caused Walker to lose control because the drug wasn’t paired with any anti-psychotic medications.

Proof vaccines are not properly tested for safety before approval — WATCH NOW

The US Vaccine Advisory Panel, called the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), is the group that approves vaccines for public use in the United States. Most members have connections to the pharmaceutical (aka vaccine) industry.

This 4-minute video was taken from a recent ACIP meeting discussing the approval of a new Hepatitis B vaccine for ADULTS. The vaccine uses a new ingredient that has NEVER been used before…and never tested for safety by anyone other than the vaccine maker.

Pre-approval studies signaled an increase in heart attacks and possibly autoimmune issues…but under pressure from vaccine makers, the committee unanimously APPROVES the vaccine.

Meaning…YOU ARE THE TEST SUBJECT!

But your doctor won’t tell you that…

The FDA is clearly concerned about side effects including HEART ATTACKS, AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS & HERPES…but the vaccine will be on the market for TWO YEARS before any data is compiled.

The Epidemic Of Peanut Allergy: Don’t Blame The Peanuts

What George Washington Carver achieved in the late 1800s and early 1900s in developing over 300 products derived from peanuts is being undone by a peanut allergy that is running rampant among school-age children.

Time Magazine reports there are accounts of school nurses confiscating school lunch boxes to search for nut products and another report of a school district that evacuated a school bus full of 10-year olds when a stray peanut was found on the floor of the vehicle.

An owner and a deliveryman of a restaurant in England were recently convicted of manslaughter for delivering take-out food to a teenage girl who experienced a reaction to peanuts that caused irreversible brain damage on Jan. 1, 2017. The court said the restaurant had no systems or conditions in place to protect customers with allergies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bill Sardi fails to mention Peanut oil as an adjuvant used in vaccines!

COPS HAD A WARRANT TO ARREST A STALKER. NINE DAYS LATER, HE WAS FREE, AND SHE WAS DEAD.

Rosemarie Reilly repeatedly begged police for help in the month leading up to her death. Her ex-boyfriend, Jeremy Kelley, had beaten her and held a gun to her head, then started following her, she told them, but police didn’t take him into custody. Nine days after an arrest warrant was issued, Kelley tracked Reilly down at a friend’s house. In the middle of the night, he dragged her into the street by her hair and shot her multiple times in the torso before killing himself. The 21-year-old Michigan nursing student died at the scene.

Two years later, Reilly’s mother is demanding that law enforcement take responsibility for her daughter’s death and alleging in a lawsuit that they went easy on Kelley because his father was a cop. Pamela Reilly, 55, who filed a lawsuit against Michigan’s Ottawa County and several members of local police forces Oct. 5, told BuzzFeed News that the lack of urgency police showed in response to her daughter’s pleas for help led to her murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This never, ever should have happened, period, end of discussion.

And BTW, where the hell was Attorney General Jeff Sessions, allegedly our "top cop", who is generally fond telling police officers that there is a "war against them" when things like this happen?!?

In his usual, preferred situation of "nowhere to be found", when it comes to cases like this.

Parents whose son died after Gardasil Vaccine in August just spoke at the CDC

We must continue to fight to make sure that no more children are needlessly sacrificed. (Especially for a vaccine like HPV which has never been tested properly and continues to do such harm to so many.) Even their own conventional neurologist, as seen in the video, stated that Christopher died of ADEM, which was most likely contracted by the HPV vaccine he had received just days before.

And a big thank you to all our readers who contributed to the family so they could hop a plane from Oklahoma to Atlanta (they have never flown before) because they had to be there for their son. And for countless other sons who still have their lives.

As his mother said, he will never have his first high school dance, never get married, or know the joy of having children. Because he is gone. Thanks to the HPV vaccine.

Apple Watch owners asked to return devices for repair after update glitch

Apple has pulled an update for its smartwatches after some owners complained the software had caused their devices to stop working.

The problem appears to have baffled the firm's repair staff, and there appears to be no way at present for owners to restore the products themselves.

Several have said they have been told they need to send in the devices for a fix.

Apple said it intended to release a revised update soon.

Those affected reported that their watches had become stuck in a state showing the Apple logo - but nothing else - on their screens.

US Government Loses Vaccine Lawsuit — Has Lied to the Public for Decades — Vaccines NOT Tested

Vaccine injury lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Del Bigtree, producer of the suppressed anti-vaccine documentary, Vaxxed and the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) are credited with this victory. They demanded the relevant government documents proving that all federally approved vaccines had been tested for quality over the past 32 years — and there were none.

Here are the huge legal and practical implications in this legal victory for the American people:

Decentralized Truth - aantonop


Published on Dec 16, 2017
In this talk, Andreas explores the confusion and instinctive disbelief from newcomers about how open, decentralized cryptocurrencies can scale and grow in value without the finality of approval from authorities. He also emphasises the importance of "don't trust, verify" and why we should become accustomed to uncertainty, so that we may individually discover authenticity and truth. Markets are emergent aggregations of subjective decisions.

What to Eat When You're Broke

The lower your income is, the more difficult it is to be particular about what you feed your family.

This probably isn't an earth-shattering revelation to anyone, but if you feel like experimenting, try to buy a week's worth of healthy food for a family on a budget of, say, $50-75.  Food manufacturers that target lower-income shoppers with more affordable products tend to include more GMOs and toxic ingredients in their offerings.

Here's a guide to the grocery store gauntlet.

All Found Murdered! Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines

A number of holistic doctors in Florida, over 60 of them within one year, who have been found, killed or dead all have one common denominator. They had all found out that an enzyme protein was cancer causing and the protein with the name of Nagalese had been added to vaccines that had been given to humans and this is something that has been happening on a global scale.

Doctors Were Said To Be Getting Ready To Reveal Findings
Nagalese is said to be an enzyme that stops vitamin D from being produced in the body and so stops the natural ability of the body to kill off any cancer cells. It is also a protein that is created by cancer cells and can be found in high concentrations in children with autism. It was revealed that it has been put into vaccines.

Multiple Studies Show Using CBD Oil for Sleep Disorders May Be Your Safest Bet

What if there was a much safer way to treat sleeplessness and other sleep disorders that didn’t have any side effects, versus dangerous prescription sedatives and hypnotics? This is where CBD oil extract or tincture comes into the picture. This cannabis-derived supplement seems to hold significant promise for those suffering from sleep ailments.

Monsanto’s top weedkiller now found in pet food as well as cereal

Two new studies show how extensively Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide glyphosate has permeated our food chain. Designated carcinogenic by some health authorities, it was found in over 40 pet foods and breakfast cereals.
Researchers at Cornell University found glyphosate in all 18 of the dog and cat food brands they surveyed, including one product that was certified GMO-free.

They stressed that the chemical was present in low concentrations – lower than those typically found in human food, at least – but glyphosate's effect on domestic animals in any concentration is unknown, and studieshave found human cells to show negative effects when exposed to levels of glyphosate-based herbicides far below those deemed "safe" by regulators.

THE AIDS INDUSTRY

We haven’t looked at this in a while, but millions are terrorized by it daily and the fear is used to make Big Pharma rich.

From one point of view AZT – the cure – killed more than immune system collapse.

How many pregnant women – usually low income minorities receiving government health care – have been “diagnosed with AIDS” by mistake and given dangerous drugs to “treat” them?

How many people in Third World countries have been given “AIDS medicine” instead of basic health care, clean water, adequate nutrition, and freedom from toxic environments?

Cancer-causing' weed killer found in 26 of 28 United States cereals

The weed killer was recently at the center of a trial in which a California jury found Roundup was responsible for giving groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, 46, terminal cancer.

None of the products in the new report had levels above what is allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but the EWG argues that customers should be concerned that any levels are being detected in products consumed by children everyday.

In August, the EWG conducted its first study, which found the presence of glyphosate in 45 samples of breakfast cereals from producers Quakers, Kellogg's, and General Mills.

On the heels of this study, the group wanted to dive further and test specifically Quaker Oats and Cheerios products, because high levels of glyphosate were found in the first study and they are two of the most popular cereal brands.

The EPA itself released a statement saying the report should not leave consumers concerned.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have any of these products in your home, deep-six them now, and go to an organic equivalent, which states, on its label, no gmos, no pesticides.

Even if it just a little bit of poison your kids are ingesting, it is still...poison.

New (NZ) law means competition regulator can now investigate fuel companies

A bill that empowers the Commerce Commission to investigate anti-competitive behaviour has passed its third reading in Parliament, allowing a study into the fuel market to start by the end of the year.

The Commerce Amendment Bill, which passed with the support of all parties with the exception of Act, will mean the commission can carry out a market study if it - or a minister - deems it in the public interest.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has prioritised the bill in the past two weeks and has already lined up petrol companies as the first sector to be looked at.

Dr. Russell Blaylock Warns: Don't Get the Flu Shot — It Promotes Alzheimer's

The government is ratcheting up its efforts to convince Americans to get flu shots. "You can't walk into a pharmacy without seeing lines, and the government is now telling preachers to tell their congregations to get flu shots," says Dr. Russell Blaylock, renowned neurosurgeon and editor of the Blaylock Wellness Report. "I've never seen anything like it.

"The incidence of flu across the United States is extremely low — there are virtually no outbreaks — and not a single child has died. Yet, the flu vaccine is being pushed as if it's the greatest health advance ever discovered.

"The vaccine is completely worthless, and the government knows it," says Dr. Blaylock. "There are three reasons the government tells the elderly why they should get flu shots: secondary pneumonia, hospitalization, and death. Yet a study by the Cochrane group studied hundreds of thousands of people and found it offered zero protection for those three things in the general community.

Growing uncertainty about whether San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos would rule in favor or against Bayer’s appeal of the Monsanto Cancer Verdict were resolved Tuesday morning as the judge upheld the jury’s decision that the glyphosate-based weedkiller (aka Roundup) sold by Monsanto caused a California man’s terminal cancer and that Monsanto intentionally hid its dangers.

"SMART HOME" COMPANIES REFUSE TO SAY WHETHER LAW ENFORCEMENT IS USING YOUR GADGETS TO SPY ON YOU

Transparency reports are standard practice across the tech industry, disclosing the nature, quantity and scope of all the law enforcement requests each company receives in a given year.

But there's a notable exception to this practice: the "smart home" companies who sell you products that fill your house with gadgets that know every intimate fact of your life -- all-seeing eyes, all-listening ears, all-surveillance network taps. The companies that sell these products refuse to say whether (or how) they are being suborned to serve as state surveillance adjuncts by law enforcement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why I would NEVER allow a "smart home" object into our home, like Alexa, ever, unless it became legally mandated.

And should that become legally mandated, I would find a way of disabling the device so it was no longer listening to what I am saying, but appeared to be on, from the standpoint of who might be eavesdropping.

“Smart” meters are wildly inaccurate: Study finds that readings can be 581% higher than actual use

To conduct the study, lead researcher Franz Leferink, Professor of Electromagnetic Compatibility at the UT, tested nine different electronic meters manufactured between 2004 and 2014. The meters were connected via electric switchboard to various power-saving devices – including energy-saving light bulbs, heaters, LED bulbs and dimmers. The team then compared actual energy consumption with the readings furnished by the electronic meters.

The results were profoundly disturbing. Five of the nine meters – more than half – gave readings higher than the actual power consumed – in some cases, a staggering 582 percent higher. Other readings were 475 percent, 566 percent, 569 percent and 581 percent higher than actual use. (This could theoretically reflect a near six-fold increase in a utility bill – a rip-off of outrageous proportions!)

Monsanto And Bayer Are Moving To Create A Monopoly On Marijuana

You’ve heard of Monopoly, right? The fun little board game with fake money, little plastic houses, and get out of jail free cards? It’s a great way to pass the time. That is, depending on who you’re playing with.

But when it comes to real-life properties, business, and products, however, a monopoly becomes a whole lot more dangerous.

Two major companies, Monsanto and Bayer, have recently joined together and seem to be plotting to take over the cannabis industry. In other words, create a monopoly on marijuana.

Maseca Corn Flours Test Positive for Toxic Residues of Monsanto Weedkiller

Organic Consumers Association Mexico (ACO), a project of US-based Organic Consumers Association (OCA), today announced that samples of Maseca brand white and yellow corn flours tested positive for residues of glyphosate and its main metabolite, AMPA. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller.

"It's clear from our testing that Maseca's claims of selling a 'natural' and 'nutritious' product are false and misleading," said OCA's international director, Ronnie Cummins. "Consumers in Mexico and the US who care about pesticide contamination and GMOs should seek organic non-GMO alternatives to Maseca flours until the company agrees to source only non-GMO grains for its products."

U.S. Responsible for 3,300 Civilian Deaths in Syria, Supporting Genocide in Yemen

A new report finds that the U.S is responsible for more than 3,300 civilian deaths in Syria since 2014. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continues to back Saudi caused genocide in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And by not standing up against this genocide, and simply accepting it as "the cost of doing business, because of the huge profits US weapons sales the military industrial complex is making from their sales to the Saudis", every single one of our alleged Congressional representatives are telling us that We the People do not matter; it's only the huge corporations, which "purchase" them though contributions to their campaigns, which do.

I have to wonder what a forensic audit of all of our Congressional Representatives would reveal, as to who has pocketed the most from the military industrial complex; if that were allowed to happen, I think we'd all be collectively gobsmacked by the numbers.

When scientists want their data fudged and why you should care

How often are you asked to do something unethical? That was the blunt question at the heart of a surprising survey of biostatisticians released this week.

McGill University bioethicist Jonathan Kimmelman said the results should be concerning to everyone.

'Hello, death': Coca-Cola's te reo marketing blunder

It's both an unfortunate mistake and a cautionary tale on the dangers of mixing languages.

A Coke vending machine with the words "Kia Ora, Mate" is doing the rounds on Twitter, with social media users pointing out the dangers of mixing te reo and English.

"Mate" is M?ori for "death" which brings a whole new meaning to the sentence - and definitely not the one Coca-Cola intended.

Twitter user @waikatoreo posted the photo on Sunday, saying "Coke got an unexpected result when they mixed M?ori and English".

Some Twitter users pointed out it could be an accidental case of "honesty in advertising".

"Obesity is the #1 cause of death in NZ, and Coke are just jumping on the marketing opportunity," someone said. Another Twitter user called it "fair warning".

With Saudi Arabia and Egypt—the outside—brought onside with the promise of continued military aid despite their crimes against humanity and violations of international law and the Palestinians weakened by being silenced, economically crushed and stripped of any friends to help them, the United States and Israel are now free to attempt to impose a peace plan on the Palestinians.

Campaigners have lashed out at the retail giant Amazon for selling in its adult section sex dolls that they say look strikingly like youngsters. The dolls are not advertised as silicone "kids," but they reportedly have the looks of young girls, thereby sparking concerns that their adult users may go on to abuse children next.

EFF To Texas AG: Epson Tricked Its Customers With a Dangerous Fake Update

Back in 2016, printing giant HP sent a deceitful, malicious update to millions of OfficeJet and OfficeJet Pro printers that disguised itself as a "security update." Users who trusted HP and applied the update discovered to their chagrin that the update didn't improve their printers' security: rather, the updated printers had acquired the ability to reject cheaper ink, forcing the printer owners to throw away their third-party and refilled ink cartridges and buy new ones.

Now, Epson has followed suit: in late 2016 or early 2017, Epson started sending deceptive updates to many of its printers. Just like HP, Epson disguised these updates as routine software improvements, when really they were poison pills, designed to downgrade printers so they could only work with Epson's expensive ink systems.

Intel Stands Behind Controversial Tests That Favored Its CPU Over AMD's

It's a basic rule of benchmarking. When you're comparing two competing products, you need to make all the testing conditions -- especially the settings -- as similar as possible. Otherwise, you're just comparing apples to crab apples, which is what may have happened in a recent benchmark report that showed Intel's new Core i9-9900K outperforming AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X in several games.

As part of its Coffee Lake Refresh launch, Intel paid test firm Principled Technologies to benchmark its new processors and compare them to chips in AMD's current lineup (PDF). However, Hardware Unboxed spotted a few test conditions that obviously could skew the results in favor of Intel's processor, including using a less-capable CPU cooler on AMD's chip, overclocking the RAM on Intel's platform only, and disabling half the cores on an AMD Ryzen processor.
