Trump neuters ObamaCare birth control coverage mandate, tightens regulations on plans covering abortion

In a post-midterms one-two punch to ObamaCare, the Trump administration on Wednesday finalized major rule changes aimed at rolling back the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage mandate and tightening restrictions to ensure that taxpayer subsidies aren't used to fund abortions.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that the changes would allow some employers with religious or moral objections to opt out of providing no-cost birth control for female workers.

Last year, the White House vowed to provide "full protection” to a wide range of companies and organizations that claim a “religious or moral objection” to providing the coverage.

Under former President Barack Obama's health care law, most employers must cover birth control at no charge as a preventive service for women. Accommodating religious objections has been a sticking point with conservatives for years, and was the subject of legal challenges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out that pregnancy...is not an illness.

And in 2018, one month of birth control pills at Walmart averages out to $9.00 per month. That averages out to $108 dollars per year.

And any female employee has the right to work for any company, not under religious auspices, which provides coverage.

This is not about providing coverage; it is about forcing organisations to provide coverage, even though that coverage is completely at odds with a company's moral compass.

EXTREMIST ANTI-CHOICE LAWS PASS IN TWO STATES WHILE OREGON VOTERS REJECT ATTEMPT TO CURB ABORTION RIGHTS FOR LOW-INCOME WOMEN

While rejoicing over Oregon voters' decisive rejection of a measure that would have left low-income residents and state employees without abortion coverage, reproductive rights advocates prepared for battles in two red states where extremist anti-choice proposals were passed on Tuesday night.

In Alabama, the passage of Amendment 2 will give a fetus the same right to life held by a person under the state constitution, paving the way to criminalize abortion with a "trigger ban" like the ones that exist in Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, and South Dakota, should the Supreme Court overturn Roe vs. Wade. Access to contraception and the morning-after pill could also be restricted as a result.

The amendment passed by 18 points, with Alabama voters supporting a proposal that made no mention of exceptions in which a woman's right to abortion care would trump the rights of a fetus, like in cases involving rape, incest, or risks to a pregnant woman's life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but I never knew that this country actually HAD a National Abortion Federation, before reading this article!!

But the statement that ""This amendment is so far-reaching that it would allow the state to prosecute women for using IUDs, emergency contraception, and IVF or even for missing prenatal care appointments or not being able to leave an abusive partner..." absolutely jumps the proverbial shark.

I am, personally, pro-life.

But if a 17 year old young woman knocked at my door, crying that she thought she had skipped a period, I would encourage her to weigh all her options, before consenting to an abortion as "the only way" to deal with the pregnancy.

In my world, adoption is a beautiful thing, but I understand that it is not an option for every pregnancy.

I have actually known a couple here on Oahu who opted to adopt a baby whose mom was withdrawing from crack at the time of her delivery, and were holding her hands, when the baby was delivered. The little girl is just fine, thank you very much, and is growing up with love, structure, and a happy household. As she matures, she will make a positive contribution to society because of that.

Vaccine court admits that the chickenpox vaccine permanently disabled a young boy

While vaccine makers and the mainstream media continue to deny that vaccines can be harmful, the vaccine court in the United States is quietly awarding money to victims of vaccine injuries, and after a protracted legal battle, the Department of Health and Human Services has even admitted the chickenpox vaccine caused one boy’s paralysis.

THE FDA REQUESTED A $25 MILLION STUDY ON CELL PHONE RADIATION, BUT IGNORED THE RESULTS THAT LINK THE RADIATION TO CANCER

A $25 million comprehensive study on the effects of cellphone radiation on rats that spanned 19 years found clear evidence of tumors in the hearts of male rats and some links to tumors in the brains and adrenal glands of male rats. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which had requested the study in the first place, is casting doubt on the study’s conclusions claiming that the results on the rodents cannot be extrapolated to humans. David Carpenter, the Director for Health and Environment at the University of Albany in New York, said that many studies have shown increased risk of brain cancer (glioblastoma) in humans due to excessive cell phone use, and that animal models like mice and rats in experiments are common because it is very rare for a substance to cause cancer in an animal, but not in humans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When an industry makes enough money, and contributes generously to both sides of the aisle, it is no wonder that outcomes of studies like this become suppressed.

Just look at what Monsanto has been allowed to get away with for decades!!!

Wind farms are the 'new apex predators': Blades kill off 75% of buzzards, hawks and kites that live nearby, study shows

A study of wind farms in India found that predatory bird numbers drop by three quarters in areas around the turbines.

This is having a 'ripple effect' across the food chain, with small mammals and reptiles adjusting their behaviour as their natural predators disappear from the skies.

Birds and bats were assumed to be most vulnerable to the rise of the landscape-blotting machines.

But their impact is reverberating across species, experts warned, upsetting nature's delicate balance.

Cocktail of drugs including antidepressants is polluting our rivers and streams: Insects are passing the chemicals to larger predators such as fish and platypus

Many of the insects examined contained pharmaceutical chemicals at concentrations that may threaten the lives of animals that feed on them.

Study co-author Dr Emma Rosi, an expert at Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in the United States, said: 'Stream life is swimming in a mixture of pharmaceuticals.

'Our study is the first to show that this chronic drug pollution can concentrate in aquatic insects and move up food webs, in some cases exposing top predators to therapeutically-relevant doses.'

Curiosity is on the move again one month after NASA switched its 'brain' to a backup computer

NASA’s Curiosity rover is back to work after switching its ‘brain’ last month to resolve a memory anomaly.

The Mars rover ventured to a site called Lake Orcadie for its latest drive, in which it traveled about 197 feet (60 meters).

It might not seem like much, but according to the team, this is the longest drive it’s accomplished since the issues arose earlier this fall, signalling that the hardy robot is back in the game.

Planned Obsolescence of Health Under The 5G Grid

By Rosanne Lindsay, ND

When your stuff is designed to break down, that’s ‘planned obsolescence.’ In fourteen short years, we have gone from 2G wifi (2004) to 5G, from flip phone to smart phone. By design. Are we smarter? Healthier?

On September 26, 2018, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) voted to implement its Wireless Infrastructure Order (dockets 17-79 and 17-84). The order preempts local control of the public rights-of-way. Wireless companies can now more easily install cell towers in front of your home without your consent...

Fox News Promotes RFID For Medical Purposes — Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Take The Chip

By Aaron Kesel

Fox News is pushing RFID chip implants, encouraging people that the tech is safe and good for medical by stating it’s similar to getting a tetanus shot.

Recently in Sweden, thousands of people have reportedly had chips implanted. Fox highlights this news expressing that a company called Biohax has already “installed” around 4,000 chips into “customers.”

The article then goes onto explain how awesome it is to have a chip in one’s hand, stating that those chipped can open secure doors, pay for tickets, and share emergency medical information...

Your Kid’s Vaccines May Actually be Making Them Sick…

Periodically injecting cocktails of toxic substances such as mercury, aluminum, live viruses, formaldehyde, chicken egg albumin, squalene, glutamate, DNA fragments, etc, into the muscles of unaware, innocent babies and adults puts them all at risk of being diagnosed with vaccine-induced brain disorders including, much later in life, Alzheimer’s disease. (The chronic use of neurotoxic prescription drugs [especially psychiatric drugs] is also a major risk factor for Alzheimer’s especially when vaccines are also periodically injected.)

One of the major problems with infant vaccines is that they are mandated (!) to be given to infants and young children in cocktails of hyperimmunity- and/or autoimmunity-inducing and potentially brain-damaging vaccines and brain-damaging prescription drugs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Money is demanded by the medical industrial complex, in terms of these vaccinations, then more money is demanded to "cure" you of the illnesses the vaccines created; sounds like a sweet deal for big pharma!

GMO POTATO CREATOR NOW FEARS ITS IMPACT ON HUMAN HEALTH

Of all the genetic engineers who have renounced the technology—Arpad Pusztai, Belinda Martineau, Thierry Vrain, John Fagan and Michael Antoniou, among others—because of its shortsighted approach and ability to produce unintended and potentially toxic consequences, Caius Rommens' story may be the most compelling.

Rommens was director of research at Simplot Plant Sciences from 2000 to 2013 where he led development of the company's genetically engineered Innate potato. But over time, Rommens started to have serious doubts about his work and worried about potential health risks from eating the GMO potatoes, which are now sold in 4,000 supermarkets in the U.S.

Rommens' concerns about the GMO potato led him to write a book, Pandora's Potatoes, which was recently published. The book is a case study on how a scientist's initial enthusiasm about genetic engineering turns to doubt and fear as he realizes the hazards the technology can create.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any one who really wants to understand the dangers of GM products to human health, ought to read the research of Seralini, whose first paper on this issue got published, then, retracted, because a Monsanto board member became an editor of this scientific journal, and finally got it republished, and won a court case about the merits of his research, and got his professional reputation back.

The Seralini Research on GMO

This man is one of my favorite unsung heroes for the pioneering work he did, even after Monsanto tried to smack him down.

A mysterious polio-like illness that paralyzes people may be surging this year

In the hospital, Carter lost control of his right arm, then over his legs and other muscles within a few days. He now can only wiggle a toe and move the left side of his face. He has been diagnosed with a mysterious, polio-like illness called acute flaccid myelitis, a condition that seems to be surging this year.

Through July, 32 new cases of AFM have been confirmed across the United States this year by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a sharp rise compared with last year, when just seven cases had been confirmed by that month. The numbers have risen steadily since April. In past years, most cases have occurred between August and December, with a peak in October.

How The CDC Made 30,000 Diagnoses Of Polio Instantly Disappear

The polio vaccine was licensed in the U.S. in 1954. From 1950 thru 1955, the striped and clear portions of the bars represent about 85% of the reported cases, or 30,000 per year, on average. Those cases were automatically eliminated by two radical changes the CDC made to the diagnostic parameters and labeling protocol of the disease as soon as the vaccine was licensed – 30,000 cases a year we were subsequently told were eliminated by the vaccine.

That success, held aloft as a banner of the industry, is an illusion. The CDC has an awesome power of control over public perception, sculpting it from behind closed doors in Atlanta, with the point of a pen.

Over the last sixty years in the U.S., more than a million cases of what would have been diagnosed as polio pre-vaccine – same symptoms – were given different labels.

Veterans say ADF drug trial left them debilitated

Ex-serviceman Mark doesn’t want priority boarding on Australian airlines.

He just wants help for medical conditions that go back to 2001, when he was deployed to Timor-Leste and took anti-malarial drugs in a seven-month trial.

A Senate inquiry in Melbourne on Monday heard from Mark and others like him, veterans with a range of symptoms they have had for almost two decades: memory loss, vertigo, migraines, vivid nightmares, hearing and vision loss, aggression and suicidal thoughts.

“I don’t care if I get to board a jet first or get discounts on my shopping. I want my body and mind back,” Mark told the inquiry.

“I loaned them to you and you broke them.”

The Other Pipe Bombs? US’ Ancient Gas Infrastructure Keeps Killing People

A series of linked explosions around the US have killed and injured dozens this year, but without a politically convenient antagonist behind them, they’ve garnered few headlines. It’s not a terrorist who’s stalking an unsuspecting US population ? it’s the country’s decrepit gas infrastructure and the toothless safety regimen governing it.

US natural gas infrastructure is painfully old, under-regulated and under-inspected, and the nation's growing appetite for natural gas is pushing the aging network to the limit. Utility companies exploit this vulnerability to dodge necessary safety rules, costing lives.

Aftershocks Rattle Southern California After 4.4 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes

A 4.4 magnitude earthquake struck in southern California on Tuesday night. Shortly after, a 3.4 magnitude aftershock shook the area sparking more talks and fears of “The Big One.”

According to USA Today, the earthquake was centered near the Los Angeles County city of La Verne, about 83 miles northwest of Palm Springs and 25 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Both the original quake and the aftershock were recorded shortly after 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time, and were separated by just under a minute. Tuesday night’s quake also came just one day after the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs was jolted by a magnitude 3.0 quake north of Indio and east of Desert Hot Springs, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Dawn Is Dead: NASA's Pioneering Asteroid-Belt Mission Runs Out of Fuel

NASA's Dawn spacecraft — which orbited the two largest objects in the asteroid belt, Vesta and Ceres, during its long and accomplished life — has run out of fuel and died, agency officials announced today (Nov. 1).

"Today, we celebrate the end of our Dawn mission — its incredible technical achievements, the vital science it gave us and the entire team who enabled the spacecraft to make these discoveries," Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C., said in a statement.

San Andreas Fault Line: An Unstoppable Geyser Of Mud

An unstoppable geyser of mud is continuously pouring from the San Andreas fault line and slowly creeping across California. The troublesome mud in California’s Imperial County has caused local authorities to declare it an emergency earlier this year.

It’s called the Niland Geyser, according to Science Alert, and it’s exactly that, a geyser of bubbling mud. But there’s a strange twist – this menacing puddle has been slowly creeping across the ground, to the point where it’s now threatening railroad tracks and a state highway. The Niland Geyser had first appeared in California in 1953 but it sat around without incident for decades. Then, around 11 years ago, things began to change. The geyser started moving across the dry ground at a glacial pace.

10th child dies amid adenovirus outbreak at New Jersey pediatric care center

A 10th child died Wednesday night from adenovirus after an outbreak at a New Jersey long-term care center that has infected 27 medically fragile children, the state Health Department said.

The death came as the outbreak entered its sixth week at the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation. A second outbreak, believed to be a different type of adenovirus, was confirmed Wednesday at the Voorhees Pediatric Center in Camden County.

Four children have been affected in Voorhees with a milder form of illness, Shereef Elnahal, the state health commissioner, said. Preliminary tests indicated it was not the same type of the virus as has swept through the Wanaque center.

“The loss of these young lives is heartbreaking, and our thoughts are with the families who are affected,” Elnahal said of the death. “We are working closely with the facility to conduct respiratory illness surveillance and ensure all infection control protocols are continuously followed.”

Smartphones and tablets are causing mental health problems in children as young as TWO by crushing their curiosity and making them anxious

Just an hour a day staring at a screen can be enough to make children more likely to be anxious or depressed.

This could be making them less curious, less able to finish tasks, less emotionally stable and lowering their self-control.

Although teenagers are most at risk from the damaging devices, children under the age of 10 and toddlers' still-developing brains are also being affected.

But research shows 'zombie' British children spend nearly five hours every day gawping at electronic devices.

Tests Reveal More of Monsanto's Weedkiller in Kids’ Cereals Than Common Vitamins

A shocking amount of the popular herbicide glyphosate, marketed by Monsanto/Bayer as RoundUp, has been found in breakfast cereals marketed to children. Even more appalling is the revelation that some of the cereals contain more glyphosate than common vitamins.

According to the results of laboratory tests commissioned by the Environmental Working Group, the amount of the toxic herbicide glyphosate “exceeded the amount of both Vitamin D and Vitamin B12” in General Mills’ Honey Nut Cheerios. More glyphosate than Vitamin A was found in Quaker Oatmeal Squares.

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.

SEED VAULTS CAN’T SAVE A THIRD OF CRITICALLY ENDANGERED PLANTS

More than a third of all the critically endangered plant species on Earth grow from a type of seed that can’t be dried, meaning we can’t preserve them in seed vaults as an insurance policy against extinction. Unless we can find other preservation techniques, once these plants—which include oak trees, mango trees, and horse chestnut trees—are gone, they’re gone, according to a new study published Friday in Nature Plants.

“Conventional seed banking is not suitable for all seed plants, with some species having recalcitrant seeds unable to survive the drying process and therefore incapable of being frozen,” the paper, written by scientists at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, reads.

Recalcitrant seeds need to keep their water content in order to grow. Think of an avocado: if you keep a fresh avocado pit and root it in a container of water, it can still grow. But if you dry it out in your cupboard for a few weeks, it’s basically dead.

IN THE MIDST OF CRISIS, FDA APPROVES OPIOID DRUG 10X STRONGER THAN FENTANYL FUNDED BY DOD

The FDA has approved the rollout of a new opioid drug up to 1000 times stronger than morphine, despite the opioid crisis that is currently killing more Americans than any other cause of accidental death.

The agency sided with its Anesthetic and Analgesic Advisory Panel, which voted 10-3 to approve Dsuvia, a sublingual tablet form of sufentanil, against the recommendation of its chairman. At 5-10 times the strength of fentanyl, sufentanil is 500-1000 times stronger than morphine, and will supposedly only be administered to treat acute pain in medically-supervised settings.

Fentanyl, too, is available only by prescription, yet a significant quantity is manufactured in illegal labs or diverted to the street, where it regularly kills opioid addicts who aren’t even aware they are taking it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you ever had a doubt in your mind who - or what - actually owns the FDA, the approval of this drug, given its very limited-use capabilities, should give you at least a tiny clue; it is the drug companies themselves.

I have zero doubt that shortly after this drug's approval, it will be reverse-engineered by chemists who work for the drug criminals, and available on the streets in relatively no time, adding to the hideous statistics on US narcotic addiction and death.

Russia to have permanent moon base – space chief

Russia’s plans for moon exploration are to be updated within two weeks, but Moscow still wants to have a permanent base on its surface, the head of Russian space agency Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin said.

Rogozin, who was appointed Russia’s space chief in May, announced the looming lunar changes in an interview with RIA Novosti, as he was outlining his plans for a major overhaul of the space industry.

“We expect the suggestions form the Academy of Sciences and the Science and Technology Council of Roscosmos to come very soon. Within two weeks they are expected to present their vision for exploring Moon,” he said. He didn’t offer further details about how the program may change, but said plans for a surface base would remain in it.

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.

Ange trialled a few different CBD oils before finding oil by Kanaco, containing 1,000mg of CBD, worked best on Lilly.

“I give it to her every day.” said Ange. “I give her two drops in the morning and about four drops at night, every day, and it really, really relaxes her. She’s got such increased muscle tone so it really relaxes her muscle tone a lot - within seven minutes.

“Her fists are usually really clenched, and this has just really opened up her hands.

“She was having a lot of tonic-clonic seizures [a type of epileptic seizure]. She hasn’t had one for a long time now.

“At her school and at the charity group she goes to every other Saturday they’ve noticed her absence seizures [which causes you to blank out or stare into space for a few seconds] are pretty much gone.”

An expert has warned cheap tests for the BRCA gene mutations, which increase the risk of breast cancer, are giving out false results and worrying women.

The BRCA mutations were made famous by Angelina Jolie, who had both her breasts surgically removed when she discovered she was at risk of cancer because she carried a mutated version of the gene.

And while tests are available online for as little as £25, they may not be reliable, 'cause more worry than benefit', and cost the NHS money in follow-up tests.

Two spacecraft 'die' in two days: NASA retires asteroid studying probe Dawn after it runs out of fuel 48 hours after the demise of planet hunting Kepler

Scientists have known for about a month that Dawn was almost out of hydrazine, a fuel that kept the spacecraft's antennae oriented toward Earth and helped turn its solar panels to the sun to recharge.

The spacecraft this week stopped communicating with flight controllers, prompting NASA to declare it dead on Thursday.

It comes two days after the Kepler Space Telescope, which spent nine-and-a-half-years hunting for planets outwith our solar system, also ran out of fuel needed for pointing the spacecraft.

They both kept working longer than anticipated and their demise had been expected.
