You are now Breathing Ethylene Dibromide, Virally Mutated Molds, Nano-Particulates of Aluminum and Barium, and Polymer Fibers with Unidentified Bio-Active Material


Do you have toxic levels of Barium and Aluminum in your blood?  A number of people living in Arizona have discovered that they have blood levels of Aluminum or Barium 150 times higher than the amount considered safe. Many are experiencing the classic symptoms of Barium poisoning. Barium damages the immune system, causes dose-related muscle weakness up to total paralysis including the heart & lung muscles.

documentation has put her in the forefront of those working to unravel the mysteries of this horrifying new disease.  The research and documentation presented at the link below is a must read.  Please pass this information on to your doctors, congressional representatives and the media.

Compare it with the next few images of earth taken during the era of chemtrails.  Shocking isn’t it?



BLOOD TESTING REVEALS BARIUM 150 TIMES HIGHER THAN SAFE
Arizona, like the rest of the country has experienced heavy chemtrailing since 1997. So there is good reason to suspect there may be widespread problem with toxic levels of Barium & aluminum in the U.S. population,
LIFE EXPECTANCY DROPS TO 69.3 YEARS IN THE USA
HOW MUCH IS 8 YEARS OF YOUR LIFE WORTH?
In 2003 life expectancy in the USA was 77.6 years. The drop to 69.3 years since 2003, a drop of over 8 years in less than 6 years, is startling information.  This period of time just happens to coincide with a time when there has been non-stop spraying of chemtrails coast to coast on an almost daily basis.  There is plenty of scientific research proving that any increase in airborne particulates causes a corresponding increase in the death rate of the exposed population so imo the chemtrails are a glaringly obvious factor in this significant drop in expected life span.
WIDESPREAD CHEMTRAIL SICKNESS IN IDAHO; SEDATIVES FOUND IN CHEMTRAILS
THE IDAHO OBSERVER
According to a report published 8/28/06 in The Idaho Observer recent lab reports found the following in samples of chemtrail fall-out: bacteria including anthrax and pneumonia, 9 chemicals including acetylcholine chloride, 26 heavy metals including arsenic, lead, barium, mercury and uranium, 4 molds and fungi, 7 viruses, 2 cancers, 2 vaccines and 2 sedatives.
PATIENTS HIGHLY CONTAMINATED, DOC BLAMES CHEMTRAILS

An Arizona Doctor speaks out after finding high levels of Barium contamination in his patients:
“… patients are coming in with frequent headaches, sinus congestion, asthma and ear infections… I attribute this to the chemicals which our government is spraying in OUR air!
… the “hair analysis” labs which I run on some of my patients are all indicating HIGH levels of Barium. My own hair analysis indicated high Barium levels…  high levels of barium in our hair means either barium is being stored from digestion or the hair is being contaminated by an outside source[barium from chemtrails]. I am quite concerned with this violation of our environment by a government that denies it is occurring… One only has to step outside and look up at the sky to see our tax dollars at work”

He has found that some of them contain bioactive materials, which can cause “serious skin lesions and diseases when absorbed into the skin.” He has identified microscopic polymers comprised of genetically-engineered fungal forms mutated with viruses. He says that trillions of fusarium (fungus)/virus mutated spores), which secrete a powerful mico-toxin, are part of the air we breathe.”

Man killed in his home during police raid over $2 worth of marijuana

TAMPA, FL — A man was shot to death in his bedroom by a SWAT team that had stormed in uninvited looking for contraband plants.  The violence — which netted only trace amounts of illegal vegetation — adds another casualty to the death toll in America’s bloody Drug War.
* * * * *
The raid occurred the night of May 27th, 2014, in the Tampa neighborhood of Seminole Heights.  Jason Westcott, 29, and his housemate were asleep in separate rooms when the Tampa SWAT team arrived to search the premises.
Police claimed that they knocked, received no answer, then barged in when they discovered the door was unlocked.  The individual sleeping on the couch was quickly detained and the intruders made their way to Mr. Westcott’s bedroom.

Jason Westcott
In the split-second confusion of being jarred awake by strange noises, Westcott picked up his pistol in a futile effort to defend himself.  It would be the last decision he ever made.  Police skillfully entered his sleeping quarters and opened fire on the man that supposedly “threatened the officers.”
Mr. Westcott did not fire a shot.  He was mortally wounded when struck with multiple shotgun slugs and pistol rounds.
Westcott had been targeted because the government suspected him of partaking in smoking and selling marijuana.  The raid did not produce any cache of drugs, however.  The search of the tiny 600 square-foot house netted a total of 0.2 grams of marijuana — valued at $2.  Police had committed a violent home invasion, taken a life, and ruined many others to rid the streets of roughly one marijuana cigarette.
Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor defended the raid, sheepishly saying that finding drugs “is not an exact science.”
The pretexts of the search warrant were questionable.  Initially, the department claimed their actions were based on neighborhood complaints, but their story changed when the Tampa Bay Times pressed for records to back up the assertions; apparently they did not exist.  The second version of events stated that Mr. Westcott had sold marijuana to an undercover police officer, but that story, too, was retracted.  The department’s third “revised” story alleged that a confidential informer — not complaining neighbors or an undercover cop — had told the police that Mr. Westcott was a drug dealer who had sold weed at the house in the past.
Even if one believes the secret witness — who is likely under police pressure to produce tips in order to avoid his or her own prosecution — the allegations held that four transactions took place, each for small amounts of cash. Over the course of months, these alleged sales totaled just a couple hundred dollars — hardly worth expending taxpayers’ resources fretting about.   But that did not stop the Tampa Police Department from deploying the maximum amount of force available.
Israel Reyes, roommate of the decedent, gave some insight to the Tampa Bay Times regarding the menial pot habit that inspired such a violent reaction:
Reyes said he and Westcott were not hardened drug dealers, but habitual pot smokers who sometimes sold to acquaintances. He said they never kept more than 12 grams — a misdemeanor possession amount — in the house.
“We would just sell a blunt here and there to our friends or whatever. It was no crazy thing. There weren’t people coming in and out of our house every day,” he said. “It wasn’t paying any bills. We were still broke . . . going to work every day.”
If investigators had witnessed the sales firsthand rather than relying an informer, he said, they would not have called in a SWAT team prepared to face violent drug traffickers.
“That much force wasn’t necessary for this little,” Reyes said.
Mr. Westcott, who worked as a motorcycle mechanic, had one arrest, 11 years prior, for misdemeanor marijuana possession.  Even his landlord vouched for him, praising the problem-free rental experience.  Besides paying the rent on time, neighbors said the two men “were nice and quiet and minded their own business.”
Nothing has ever suggested that Mr. Westcott would ever knowingly and intentionally threaten a police officer.  He had presented no problems to TPD and had in fact called them to request their help only a few months before.   When Westcott was threatened, it was TPD investigators themselves who had told him to arm himself and prepare to shoot intruders, the The Tampa Bay Times reported:
A man who had partied at Westcott’s home was plotting to rob him. An itinerant motorcycle mechanic, Westcott didn’t have much — two televisions and a handgun that once belonged to his brother were perhaps the most valuable possessions in his 600-square-foot house in Seminole Heights — but he was terrified by his would-be intruder’s threats to kill him.
Police tracked down the suspect and warned him to stay away. Westcott, those close to him said, was left with a word of advice from the investigating officers: If anyone breaks into this house, grab your gun and shoot to kill.
On the night of May 27, as armed men streamed through his front door, Westcott grabbed his gun. But the 29-year-old didn’t have a chance to shoot before he died in a volley of gunfire. And those who killed him weren’t robbers.
They were police officers from the same agency he had enlisted to protect his home.
After encouraging him to boost his personal security, police then used Westcott’s purchase of a home security system as evidence of his alleged illegal activity.
Upset with the changing stories and the smearing of her son’s reputation, Westcott’s mother told Tampa’s FOX 13 that police were engaging in a “coverup.”
“He goes and buys a security system, and Tampa police say it’s because he’s a big-time drug dealer? No. It’s because he called you to protect him, and then you killed him,” said his mother, Patti Silliman.

20 Signs The Epic Drought In The Western United States Is Starting To Become Apocalyptic

By Michael Snyder, on July 15th, 2014 


When scientists start using phrases such as "the worst drought" and "as bad as you can imagine" to describe what is going on in the western half of the country, you know that things are bad.  Thanks to an epic drought that never seems to end, we are witnessing the beginning of a water crisis that most people never even dreamed was possible in this day and age. at an alarming rate, and the longer this drought goes on the higher they will go.   Let us hope and pray that this drought is permanently broken at some point, because otherwise we could very well be entering an era of extreme water rationing, gigantic dust storms and crippling food prices.  The following are 20 signs that the epic drought in the western half of the United States is starting to become apocalyptic...
The state of California is getting ready to ban people from watering their lawns and washing their cars, but if this drought persists we will eventually see far more extreme water conservation measures than that.  And the fact that nearly half of all of the produce in America comes out of the state of California means that ultimately this drought is going to deeply affect all of us.  Food prices have already been rising
#1 According to the Los Angeles Times, downtown Los Angeles is now the driest that it has been since records began being kept all the way back in 1877.
#2 The California State Water Resources Control Board says that nearly 50 communities are already on the verge of running out of water.
#3 In a desperate attempt to conserve water, the state of California is considering banning watering lawns and washing cars.  Once implemented, violators will be slapped with a $500 fine for each offense.
#4 It has been reported that a new social media phenomenon known as "drought shaming" has begun in California.  People are taking videos and photos of their neighbors wasting water and posting them to Facebook and Twitter.
#5 Climate scientist Tim Barnett says that the water situation in Las Vegas "is as bad as you can imagine", and he believes that unless the city "can find a way to get more water from somewhere" it will soon be "out of business".
#6 The water level in Lake Mead has now fallen to the lowest level since 1937, and it continues to drop at a frightening pace.  You can see some incredible photos of what has happened to Lake Mead right here.
#7 Rob Mrowka of the Center for Biological Diversity believes that the city of Las Vegas is going to be forced to downsize because of the lack of water...
The drought is like a slow spreading cancer across the desert. It's not like a tornado or a tsunami, bang. The effects are playing out over decades. And as the water situation becomes more dire we are going to start having to talk about the removal of people (from Las Vegas).
#8 In some areas of southern Nevada, officials are actually paying people to remove their lawns in a desperate attempt to conserve water.
#9 According to Accuweather, "more than a decade of drought" along the Colorado River has set up an "impending Southwest water shortage" which could ultimately affect tens of millions of people.
#10 Most people don't realize this, but the once mighty Colorado River has become so depleted that it no longer runs all the way to the ocean.
#11 Lake Powell is less than half full at this point.
#12 It is being projected that the current drought in California will end up costing the state more than 2 billion dollars this year alone.
#13 Farmers in California are allowing nearly half a million acres to lie fallow this year due to the extreme lack of water.
#14 The lack of produce coming from the state of California will ultimately affect food prices in the entire nation.  Just consider the following statistics from a recent Business Insider article...
California is one of the U.S.'s biggest food producers — responsible for almost half the country's produce and nuts and 25% of our milk and cream. Eighty percent of the world's almonds come from the state, and they take an extraordinary amount of water to produce — 1.1 gallons per almond.
#15 As underground aquifers are being relentlessly drained in California, some areas of the San Joaquin Valley are sinking by 11 inches a year.
#16 It is being projected that the Kansas wheat harvest will be the worst that we have seen since 1989.
#17 The extended drought has created ideal conditions for massive dust storms to form.  You can see video of one female reporter bravely reporting from the middle of a massive dust storm in Phoenix right here.
#18 Things are so dry in California right now that people are actually starting to steal water.  For example, one Mendocino County couple recently had 3,000 gallons of water stolen from them.  It was the second time this year that they had been hit.
#19 At the moment, close to 80 percent of the state of California is experiencing either "extreme" or "exceptional" drought.
#20 National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Boldt says that this is "the worst drought we probably have seen in our lifetime".
Most people just assume that this drought will be temporary, but experts tell us that there have been "megadroughts" throughout history in the western half of the United States that have lasted for more than 100 years.
If we have entered one of those eras, it is going to fundamentally change life in America.
And the frightening thing is that much of the rest of the world is dealing with water scarcity issues right now as well.  In fact, North America is actually in better shape than much of Africa and Asia.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled "25 Shocking Facts About The Earth’s Dwindling Water Resources".
Without plenty of fresh water, modern civilization is not possible.
And right now, the western United States and much of the rest of the world is starting to come to grips with the fact that we could be facing some very serious water shortages in the years ahead.

The Final Warning: Individual Investors Piling Into Stocks, Market Leverage Hits All Time Highs

The story goes that in the Winter of 1928 Joe Kennedy, father of President John F. Kennedy, went to have his shoes shined. When the shoe shine boy finished he offered Kennedy a tip. “Buy Hindeburg,” he said.
Kennedy promptly sold off all of his stock holdings. Within a year the United States saw a massive stock market crash that wiped out the life savings of millions of Americans and ushered in a decade’s long Great Depression.
When asked why he sold all his stocks Kennedy replied, “You know it’s time to sell when shoeshine boys give you stock tips. This bull market is over.”
Throughout history there have always been critical warning signs in the midst of financial exuberance that signaled the bursting of the bubble.
According to a report from Bloomberg the warning siren may have just gone off again.
Individuals Pile Into Stocks as Pros Say Bull Is Spent…
Main Street and Wall Street are moving in opposite directions.
Individual investors are plowing money back into the U.S. stock market just as professional strategists say gains for this year are over. About $100 billion has been added to equity mutual funds and exchange-traded funds in the past year, 10 times more than the previous 12 months…

“If Wall Street, after poring over all known data, comes up with a target and we’re already there, and you still see individual investors buying and they’re typically the ones that are late to the party, it would seem there is limited upside,”

“As institutional investors, we’re always concerned when the retail investor is actually arriving in the market,” Skiming, who helps manage $10 billion at Ashburton, said by telephone from Jersey, the Channel Islands. “The retail investor arrives when they can only see blue skies.”
But that’s not the worst of it.
Here’s the kicker, and it’s one that could potentially lead to massive losses for all of these folks piling into stocks and exchange traded funds.
According to market veterans, average investors are heavily leveraged right now. That means they are actually borrowing money to buy more stocks in the hopes of making huge gains, an effect that could lead to extreme stock market volatility very soon.
Big moves in a handful of stocks provided traders with a worrying signal—an “ultra-high” level of leverage in the stock market, a veteran trader told CNBC.
“People must be three or four times normal leverage,” the trader said. “We’ve seen margin accounts go up. … If we start to get a protracted move, it could get very volatile.”
The Elliot Wave Financial Forecast noted that earlier this year investors had an unprecedented leveraged debt load of $466 billion. Though investors have slightly reduced that leverage since February, Elliot Wave notes that a very similar divergence was observed back in 2007, shortly before the implosion of the global financial system:
At the October 2007 stock market high, The Financial Forecast cited a similar divergence between rising stocks and a slump in margin debt as a clear signal that the market’s advance was at or near an end.
The Financial Forecast had foreshadowed the severity of the decline by noting that the then-record total of $381 billion in July 2007 was “well beyond the old record of $278.5 billion set in March 2000.” The 37% increase in borrowed money to trade stocks that occurred from the 2000 peak to the 2007 peak led to a 54% decline in the Dow. At this point, the latest record is 67% higher than the 2000 extreme.
What all this means is very simple. Investors have borrowed nearly half a Trillion dollars in an effort to realize multi-fold gains during the unprecedented rise in stock markets over the last several years.
After all, who wants to miss out on this one shot to early retirement?
What they may not be counting on, however, is that an economic recession is soon to be announced. Though not spoken about in most public financial circles, the elephant in the room is the deteriorating state of the American consumer who is cash-strapped, jobless, and maxed out on their personal credit.
Without that spending there can be no economic growth. The first quarter of this year, though initially touted as an economic success, turned out to be a total dud when the government announced that the economy actually shrank 3 percent.
Now it’s just a matter of time, because that negative growth trend hasn’t changed and at some point in the next several week it’s going to be making headlines, revealing the purported economic recovery to be nothing more than fantasy.
Those leveraged investors who have piled into stocks over the last twelve months should take heed.
Once the panic starts there’s going to be a stampede for the exits and all of those large-scale economic collapse simulations the U.S. government has been preparing for may soon become real world scenarios.

Facebook mind control experiment was nothing compared to the deliberate manipulations of the mass media

(NaturalNews) The internet erupted in protest last week over the revelation that Facebook ran a psychological experiment on 700,000 users designed to see just how easily information could be used to manipulate their emotions. "Facebook's ill-advised psychological experiment is alarming because it suggests that the Internet, in the wrong hands, can be a powerful weapon to subtly manipulate public opinion and promote a political agenda," wrote David Einstein of SFgate.com.

Everyone else chimed in with similar condemnations: The Wall Street Journal, ZDNet, CNN, USA Today and more. Messing with the emotions of people in a "grand social experiment" was wrong, they insisted.

But hold the presses for a second. Facebook may have run a mind control experiment on 700,000 people, but the mainstream media plays mind games on tens of millions every single day.

Every minute spent watching any mainstream media news program -- CNN, Fox News, etc. -- is a minute spent enduring a massive mind control experiment that has been played out on the public for decades. And what experiment is being played out, exactly? It depends on which brainwashing network you're tuned into.

CNN brainwashing runs 24/7

If you watch CNN, then you're being brainwashed into believing Big Government is always good, Constitutionalists are paranoid radicals, and Obama is a god-like savior. If you watched Fox News in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks, you were being brainwashed into believing Bush was our savior, war was a fun "sport" to watch with pizza and beer, and vengeance was morally justified because all those "evildoers" destroyed the Twin Towers. (Never mind that the real evildoers were never publicly identified. The war had already been justified in the minds of the masses...)

Facebook is playing Tiddly Winks compared to the mass social engineering conducted by the mainstream media every single day. The same media that's telling you Facebook should be condemned for playing with your head is rewiring your reality day in and day out. You think you're watching the news, but you're actually watching an elaborate theatrical production being played out on a global stage.

Don't believe me? Watch this totally fabricated CNN broadcast from the first Gulf War, not quite pulled off by CNN reporter Charles Jaco:



The entire broadcast was utterly fabricated, yet it was broadcast as if it were real news "live from Saudi Arabia."

CNN, of course, has become a lot more sophisticated since then, mastering the art of broadcasting fake news that viewers increasingly believe to be real.

Mainstream media mind control puts the Facebook experiment to shame

Almost everything the masses think they know was implanted into their heads by the mainstream media. These include all the following outright lies which have been absorbed by the brainwashed masses:

* Drinking fluoride is good for your teeth. (Lie)

* Health care in America was made "affordable" by Obamacare. (Lie)

* There is no radiation problem with Fukushima.

* Anyone critical of President Obama is automatically a racist.

* Vaccines always work and have zero side effects or risks.

* Your money is safe in the bank. (It isn't)

* You are stupid to buy gold. Keep your holdings in dollars. (Because somebody has to ride the collapse all the way down...)

* People who think critically about the corruption and failures of government are "anti-government extremists." (They aren't)

* TV news can be trusted because it looks really cool on screen. (Teleprompters mean all the news is scripted.)

* The Federal Reserve is part of the federal government. (It isn't)

* The FDA keeps the food supply safe and protects the interests of consumers like you.

* The greatest threat to America is "home grown terrorism." (It isn't. The greatest threat is unrestrained executive power leading to a dictatorship that commits mass murder against the People. North Korea, anyone?)

* Local police departments need more armored assault vehicles to "keep your communities safe." (Since when was the 'burbs a war zone?)

* Processed food is good for your babies, especially infant formula made with over 50% corn syrup. (Because babies can never have enough corn syrup, you see.)

* Drug companies care about humanity, and their high prices are necessary for more innovation to save lives. (Never mind the FDA-enforced monopolistic drug prices that create a high-profit protection racket.)

Truth-tellers are fired from mainstream media

I could go on, but you get the point: An utterly false network of beliefs has long been pounded into the heads of nearly every American through the mainstream media's elaborate (and incessant) mind warping theatrical productions.

Notice, too, that anyone who dares to tell the truth about the real world gets fired from their jobs. Judge Andrew Napolitano, for example, was booted from Fox News when his opinion speech on the importance of protecting the Constitution simply became too much for the network's corporate fairytale weavers to bear.

MSNBC, at the same time, won't hire anyone to be on air unless their resume is stamped in big red letters, "CLINICALLY INSANE." That's why almost every person featured on MSNBC already has one foot in the loony bin (and the other foot in their mouth).

So where can you find real news? You're looking at it right now: the alternative media where real voices come from real people who can't be fired because they have no bosses. We don't have all the fancy TV sets and teleprompter-reading supermodels, but we do tell the truth. And that's probably why the lying mainstream media continues to lose viewers while the alternative media keeps surging in popularity.

After all, we aren't trying to brainwash you with false information. Here at Natural News, we are working every day to dehypnotize you, clear your head and awaken you to the reality of the world around you...

Welcome to the real world, Neo.

Red Cross: How We Spent Hurricane Sandy Money Is a ‘Trade Secret’-Wait...WHAT!

The charity is fighting public records request for information on how it raised and spent money after the superstorm!


Just how badly does the American Red Cross want to keep secret how it raised and spent over $300 million after Hurricane Sandy?
The charity has hired a fancy law firm to fight a public request we filed with New York state, arguing that information about its Sandy activities is a "trade secret."
The Red Cross' "trade secret" argument has persuaded the state to redact some material, though it's not clear yet how much since the documents haven't yet been released.
As we've reported, the Red Cross releases few details about how it spends money after big disasters. That makes it difficult to figure out whether donor dollars are well spent.
The Red Cross did give some information about Sandy spending to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who had been investigating the charity. But the Red Cross declined our request to disclose the details.
So we filed a public records request for the information the Red Cross provided to the attorney general's office.
That's where the law firm Gibson Dunn comes in.
An attorney from the firm's New York office appealed to the attorney general to block disclosure of some of the Sandy information, citing the state Freedom of Information Law's trade secret exemption.
The documents include "internal and proprietary methodology and procedures for fundraising, confidential information about its internal operations, and confidential financial information," wrote Gabrielle Levin of Gibson Dunn in a letter to the attorney general's office.
If those details were disclosed, "the American Red Cross would suffer competitive harm because its competitors would be able to mimic the American Red Cross's business model for an increased competitive advantage," Levin wrote.
The letter doesn't specify who the Red Cross' "competitors" are.
The Red Cross is a public charity and occupies a unique place responding to disasters alongside the federal government.
Among the sections of the documents the Red Cross wanted redacted was "a two-line title" at the top of a page, one line of which was "American Red Cross."
The attorney general's office denied that redaction, writing that it "can not find disclosure of this two line title will cause the Red Cross any economic injury."
Asked about the effort to have Sandy materials kept secret, Red Cross spokeswoman Anne Marie Borrego told ProPublica: "We sought to keep confidential a small part of the letter [sent to the AG] that provided proprietary information important to maintaining our ability to raise funds and fulfill our mission."
Doug White, a nonprofit expert who directs the fundraising management program at Columbia University, said that it's possible for nonprofits to have trade interests — the logo of a university, for example — but it's not clear what a "trade secret" would be in the case of the Red Cross. He called the lawyer's letter an apparent "delaying tactic."
Ben Smilowitz of the Disaster Accountability Project, a watchdog group, said,
"Invoking a 'trade secret' exemption is not something you would expect from an organization that purports to be 'transparent and accountable.'"
In agreeing to withhold some details, the attorney general's office found that portions of the documents the charity wanted to redact "describe business strategies, internal operational procedures and decisions, and the internal deliberations and decision-making processes that affect fundraising and the allocation of donations."
The attorney general's office also found "that this information is proprietary and constitutes trade secrets, and that its disclosure would cause the Red Cross economic injury and put the Red Cross at an economic disadvantage."
Another section the Red Cross wanted redacted was a paragraph that noted the charity's "willingness to meet with the [Office of the Attorney General.]" The attorney general's office denied that part of the request
Borrego, the Red Cross spokeswoman, declined to say how much the charity is paying Gibson Dunn but said, "we do not use funds restricted to Superstorm Sandy to cover those expenses."
We'll let you know when we get the documents we asked for — at least the parts that aren't trade secrets.
