What “Bringing American Democracy to the Rest of the World” Really Looks Like

McDonalds Fast Food: Toxic Ingredients Include Putty and Cosmetic Petrochemicals

 Every mouthful of McDonalds meal contains a handful of chemicals that raise ‘bad’ cholesterol levels, increase diabetes risk, lower immunity, and damage DNA. In fact fast food contains so many harmful ingredients that I wouldn’t even feed it to a pet because it would be cruel. When you go to the fast-food drive-through, you are:
  • paying to harm your own health;
  • your children’s health;
  • reducing your quality of life because the toxicity of eating synthetic chemicals will trigger illness;
  • put more money into the hands of the medical insurance companies.
Still lovin’ it?
Heard it before? Well despite the illusion of a gradual switch to a healthier menu containing salads and smoothies, McDonald’s line-up still contains nasty health-eroding chemicals: trans-fats, high levels of sugar, artificial sweeteners, petro-chemicals, and high-fructose corn syrup. The kids meals and salads also contain frightening ingredients and high levels of sugar.
Having perused their menus and nutritional information for their meals, it’s incredible what synthetic chemicals they add to salads, chicken meals, burgers, and even to their drinks. Did you know that many of their foods and drinks contain tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), a chemical preservative that is so deadly that just five grams is fatal? One gram of TBHQ can cause nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse.
McDonald’s foods still contain trans-fats, in addition to a whole host of synthetic chemicals to produce a taste which they deliberately engineer to be addictive, so you spend more money with them according to investigations by Eric Schlosser in his book Fast Food Nation.

Trans Fat Lie

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration decided that a food can contain trans-fats and that the amount doesn’t have to be listed on the ingredient or nutrition list, providing the amount is not more than half a gram. Many burgers, shakes, and breakfast meals contain trans-fats. The problems with these oils is that they induce free radical damage in the body, which leads to artery damage, DNA damage, and oxidation of cholesterol, a.k.a. ‘bad cholesterol’. You are getting this with every mouthful.
Almost all foods on McDonald’s menu contain hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, that are also harmful to the body because they damage your tissues and raise your ‘bad’ cholesterol. Did you know that if a food manufacturer’s food contains less than 0.5g of trans-fats then it doesn’t have to legally list trans-fats on the label?
Here is just one example of what McDonalds put in their foods. The unhealthful ingredients in McDonalds’ Chicken nuggets (straight from the McDonalds’ web site) include:
  • sodium phosphates;
  • bleached wheat flour (nutrients removed);
  • food starch-modified (likely genetically-modified);
  • dextrose (sugar);
  • partially hydrogenated soybean oil and cottonseed oil with mono-and diglycerides, (trans fats);
  • Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil) (trans fats);
  • TBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleium dervived product;
  • Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent (a form of silicone used in cosmetics, and Silly Putty).
Look for yourself
Download this nutritional information chart. It’s a long PDF document of all their menu items. Find the foods you buy in the left column, and see how much trans-fats, and sugars are in them. THEN, visit McDonald’s web site, select the foods you eat, click on the nutrition link, and scroll down to the ingredients list. If you can’t pronounce any of the ingredients and don’t know what they are then is it wise to eat them? This is a choice only you can make, but give your kids a choice too.

Pay now and later

I’m not just picking on McDonald’s here. Visit the web sites of KFC, Wendy’s, and the other companies. Their foods contain the same harmful chemicals that age you and leave your wallet and body feeling empty inside within an hour of finishing the meal. Does this make sense from a financial standpoint? What about from a health perspective? If you buy fast food, you’ll pay now (with your money) and also later (with your health).
Why do I say that feeding fast food to a carnivorous pet would be cruel? Humans have a choice about what to eat, even if the choice is sometimes limited by finances, location, or time availability. When it comes to their food, pets rely on us making the best choice for them and trust that the food we put down for them is safe. If they don’t like it, they’d leave it. The sweetness, aroma, and fat content however make fast food as appealing to pets as it would to humans, and feeding them food containing toxic ingredients would be cruel in my view.

Cuba, Venezuela, Russia and China now more free than America in notable ways

In reviewing all the breaking news over the last few months and looking for the “big picture” of where America is headed, one pattern has emerged with striking regularity: America has quietly become less free in many ways than nations like Cuba, China and even Venezuela.
This is especially true in California, where “justice” has become a joke, and the power of the state is unleashed in personal vendettas against innocent citizens who have done absolutely nothing wrong other than refuse to bow down to state-run tyranny.

In California, the most freedom-crushing region of America, a man was recently thrown in jail for four days for photographing police. Photographing or video recording police is not a crime if done in a manner that does not directly impede their actions. But California police simply don’t “like” being photographed, so they throw people in jail, without charge, and let them rot in California’s third-world prisons for a few days as a form of retaliation.
In another case, California’s raw milk man James Stewart has just been released from jail after being forced to sign a plea deal with L.A. County which accused him of the heinous crime of distributing unpasteurized milk. His punishment? Nearly four months in jail, being treated as a terrorist and denied nutrition to the point where he emerged looking like a Nazi war camp prisoner. The state then slapped on two felony charges, five years of probation, and a $300,000+ fine that the man has no way to pay because California raided his business at gunpoint, stole all his cash and then destroyed all the inventory of his business, including over $50,000 in fresh food.
This was all done, remember, for the “crime” of running a members-only club where people could pick up farm-fresh milk, eggs, cheese, melons and other better-than-organic foods. This is the new California, where the government literally destroys your business, your inventory, your livelihood, your freedom and even your health. It’s all done on a whim by truly evil prosecutors like Kelly Sakir, one of the many prosecutors who went after James Stewart using infiltration agents, hidden cameras and other Stasi-style tactics borrowed straight out of the Communist Party.
Consider this for a moment: There is greater food freedom in Russian, Cuba and even China than in California. The idea of arresting people for selling raw milk is unthinkable everywhere else in the world except the United States of America (the new global communist state of oppression). Throughout Mexico, Central America and South America, the idea of arresting people for selling fresh milk is considered total lunacy. But it’s now the status quo in America, the land of the previously free.

Fetal Deaths up 4000% after pregnant mothers took Flu Vaccine

Documentation received from the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) states that between 2009 and 2010 the mercury-laden combined flu vaccinations have increased Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Systems (VAERS) fetal death reports by 4,250 percent in pregnant women. Eileen Dannemann, NCOW’s director, made abundantly clear that despite these figures being known to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the multiple-strain, inactivated flu vaccine containing mercury (Thimerosal) has once again been recommended to pregnant women as a safe vaccination this season.

Outraged by the CDC’s total disregard for human life, Ms. Dannemann accused the CDC of ‘willful misconduct,’ saying that they are responsible for causing the deaths of thousands of unborn babies. She stated that the CDC deliberately misled the nation’s obstetricians and gynecologists and colluded with the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG) to mislead the public by advertising the flu vaccine as a safe vaccine for pregnant women when they knew fully well that it was causing a massive spike in fetal deaths.
In a letter to Dr. Joseph Mercola, Ms. Dannemann wrote:
“Not only did the CDC fail to disclose the spiraling spike in fetal death reports in real time during the 2009 pandemic season as to cut the fetal losses, but also we have documented by transcript Dr. Marie McCormick, chairperson of the Vaccine Safety Risk Assessment Working Group (VSRAWG) on September 3, 2010, denying any adverse events in the pregnant population during the 2009 Pandemic season.” [1]
Because the H1N1 pandemic vaccine had never been tested on the pregnant population, and to lessen the intensity of fears of the unknown risks, Dr. Marie McCormick of the CDC was employed to keep track of all adverse events during the 2009 pandemic season, including those adverse events in the pregnant population. Dr. McCormick was responsible for sending monthly reports to the Secretary of the Health and Human Services (HHS), citing any suspicious adverse events.
According to Ms. Dannemann, NCOW has been unable to obtain access to these monthly reports. After sending a Freedom of Information Act request to the CDC, she was told that she may have to wait 36 months to access what should be published public reports.

Almost everybody knows that something is terribly wrong

Even the most politically unaware person has a sense of foreboding, the calm before the storm feeling, if you will. Unfortunately, most Americans have been conditioned, dumbed down and kept in the dark regarding the hell that will soon await them.
Americans now live in a complete police state. The framework has been completed and now the real construction and implementation of this police state apparatus has begun in earnest.
Our banker hijacked government has eviscerated the Constitution through tyrannical legislative acts such as The Military Commissions Act, The Patriot Acts I and II, The John Warner Defense Act, The NDAA, Quantitative Easing I, II and to infinity.
Most disturbingly, over government shows every sign of beginning to carry out the Bill Ayer’s promised extermination of millions of Americans who could not be re-educated. Who was Bill Ayers? Ayers and fellow communist terrorist, his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, paid for Obama’s Harvard education and launched his political career in their Southside Chicago neighborhood home.
How do I know the American Genocide is ready to commence? I know this partly because Obama is the right man at the right time to carry this out. Further, every totalitarian regime commences its initial reign of terror by following the same exact steps   The plan is already in motion and consists of the following parts.

Gun Confiscation

Outlawing guns, followed by gun confiscation is the key step which precedes an impending holocaust. The masses must be rendered defenseless prior to the reign of terror commencing. It worked for Hitler, Stalin and Mao and now the same plan is being put together by Obama. It is no secret that Obama supports the UN version of gun confiscation. Obama has gone so far as to publish his gun ban list. Suffice it to say, if the gun has a trigger and fires bullets, it is probably on Obama’s list of banned guns.

Regime Control of All Communications

The state must prevent a coalescence of consciousness in which victims of the regime are allowed to communicate with another as a prelude to organized resistance. Therefore, every totalitarian regime must and will seize control of all major communications. It worked for Hitler, Stalin and Mao and now it is being put in place by Obama.

NWO will take guns next: Here’s How it Will be Done….

This is how the citizens of the United States will be disarmed.

No sudden, mass ban or attempt at confiscation – because that would probably lead to open violence on a large scale and they – people like Dear Leader Obama and his Vyshinsky, AG Eric Holder, know this.

So, instead, they will first pass “reasonable”restrictions.
They will target not guns – just dangerousguns. So easy to demagogue anything with, say, a high-capacity magazine. Or which looks “military.” Think how the ground has already been ceded by mainstream “gun rights” groups like the NRA – which invariably talk about “sportsmen” and “hunting.” Who needs an AR-15 (or Sig 220) to hunt?
Open carry will be next. How many millions of Clovers would support a ban?
Next, they’ll lobby for a new law (or just issue a fatwa) that makes it much harder to get a CC permit. Such as at a judge’s discretion. And only if you have a “legitimate” purpose. Self-defense will not be considered a legitimate purpose.
But the big one – tied to Obamacare – will be the transformation of gun ownership into a public healthissue.
The assault on smoking (and lately, soft drinks) should have alerted people – but as with “sobriety checkpoints,” most people readily supported the imposition of massive taxes on smokers because, after all, it is unhealthy to smoke. And of course, they didn’t smoke. So their rights were not on the table (foolish them). They – most people – never see that an attack on anyone’s rights is an attack on theirrights.They are easily gulled by their moralistic fetishes – their disapproval of some concrete thing other people do which they don’t like. Not seeing that if the government can ban (or control or regulate) thisthan it certainly can ban, control or regulate that. The particulars don’t matter. The principle is everything.
Thus, smoking has been anathematized – and rendered exorbitantly expensive to partake of. Not an outright ban – not yet. But ever closer, every year.

And guns? It will be argued it is unhealthy to have a gun in the house. There will be talk of all the suicides and domestic violence (red herrings, these – but exceptionally effective tools of emotional manipulation).
Inevitably, the children will come into play.
It will be argued that anyone who possesses a gun must also possess insurance. Just as car owners are required to buy insurance; just as we are soon to be forced to buy health insurance. The same arguments will be used – because they’ve already been accepted. Thus, just as it is not illegal to have a car – so long as you buy insurance for it – it will not be illegal (yet) to own a gun. So long as you are “properly insured.”
That will be the first step.
The second step ought to be obvious. Legal gun ownership will rendered increasingly unaffordable.
As with collectivized car and health insurance, the insurance you will be forced to buy in order to keep a gun will be based on the costs imposed by the collective. It will not matter that you handle your gun safely. Because others have not, you will be made to pay.
People can afford to buy a $500 rifle or pistol. How many will be able to afford paying $500 a year to lawfully keep that rifle or pistol? How many will be able to afford keeping more than one rifle or pistol? Can you see where this is headed? Is it not brilliant in its subtlety?

Five Reasons Why Urban Farming is the Most Important Movement of our Time

I love suburbia not for what it is, but for what it could be. While most other houses on my street have grass lawns, my yard sprouts zucchinis, tomatoes, pomegranates, kale, spinach, apples, figs, guavas, almonds, garlic, onion, strawberries, and more. Over 500 plant species all in all. We grow more than 3000 pounds of food per year on a plot of land the size of a basketball court—enough fruits and vegetables to feed my family of four year-round. Our house is part of a growing global movement of people involved in urban farming.

TSA Threatens Opt Out Journalist: ‘We Know Who You Are’

The TSA has publicly slammed a journalist who opted out of an x-ray body scan and then reported that her genitals were groped by an agent who refused to provide her name and even wore her TSA badge UPSIDE DOWN to avoid being identified.

Talk radio host Amy Alkon related the recent incident at JFK airport, during which she was threatened with arrest by a TSA supervisor who also refused to identify himself.

After alleging that the TSA screener touched her labia, breasts and bare skin inside her clothing, Alkon noted on her blog that the supervisor also refused to provide a complaint form.

“It seems to me that when a government worker is doing a contested activity like groping my body for “security” purposes, sans probable cause, or engaging in any search of me as a citizen, I am entitled to that person’s full name and badge number.”

Alkon wrote in an email to the TSA, demanding to know if the agent and the supervisor will be reprimanded.

Now, the TSA has responded on its own blog, claiming that Alkon’s post is”offensive to say the least.”

TSA blogger Bob Burns claims that the screener in question “by all accounts other than Ms. Alkon’s, did her job by the book.”

Burns then accuses Alkon of being “somebody who makes a living by agitating situations and writing about them.”

Burns admits that the checkpoint supervisor threatened to call police on Alkon but states that he did so because “Ms. Alkon continued to make a scene.”

Before regurgitating his usual diatribe about how it’s great that we have the freedom to complain about TSA policies (despite the fact that screeners refused to provide her with an official complaint form), Burns then ironically suggests that the privacy of TSA screeners should be considered.

“After all, these individuals are doing the job the way they’ve been trained to do it. They show up to work daily with the intent of protecting our Nation’s transportation network.” he writes.

Burns then issues a tacit threat to Alkon:

“I can assure you of one thing, an infinitesimal number of our employees know of Ms. Alkon.”

Is this the way the TSA deals with people who complain now? By taking to the internet and attempting to publicly smear them?

Is it all good and well for a federal government agency to tell reporters “we know who you are”, when they express disagreement with its policies?

Sears reports net loss of almost $500 million

Sears Holdings reported a net loss of almost $500 million versus $410 million last year, showing the retailer continues to struggle to turn business around.

Revenue was also down, though mostly due to closing several Sears and Kmart stores. Sales for stores open at least a year were down 3.1%, slightly better than a 3.7% decline in the second quarter.

The retailer continues to focus energy on its rewards program, Shop Your Way, which accounts for more than half of revenue for Sears and Kmart U.S. operations, CEO Lou D'Ambrosio said in a conference call Thursday afternoon.

"We're rapidly moving to a member-based business model," he said.

Shop Your Way members get access to personalized deals and earn points for purchases that can be redeemed at Sears, Kmart or Lands End, online or in stores. The company doesn't disclose how many Shop Your Way members it has, but spokesman Chris Brathwaite says it's in the "tens and tens of millions."

Online business for the company grew more than 20% in the quarter.

The Sears announcement comes on the heels of Target and Wal-Mart's third quarter earnings out Thursday morning. Both retailers reported increases in net income heading into Black Friday next week and the subsequent holiday shopping season.

Tragedy of fallen NFL star found homeless on streets of LA 'after suffering traumatic brain damage with 49ers'

After finishing nine seasons with the NFL some might expect Terry Tautolo to be living the high life.

Few might expect the 58-year-old to instead be living beneath a Los Angeles freeway, homeless, while feared to be suffering a lasting affect by the professional sport: Brain damage.

Today the former linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins appears frail though as his former 49ers roommate George Visger says, still 'very proud.'
'You look at him and, the teeth missing, the eyes sunken in, but you ask him, and, "Oh, I don’t have any issues," Mr Visger told CBS Sacramento.

Mr Visger, who played alongside Mr Tautolo until his own career was ended early due to a series of concussions, successfully sued the NFL for workers compensation after a gruelling battle.

He has had nine brain surgeries since, pointing to a hidden tube running through the side of his head to a pump in one instance, and says he could require more.

California Number 1 in Poverty Rankings Overtakes Mississippi : New Census Data Makes History

The Golden State has reached a poverty rate that is now twice as bad as West Virginia’s and substantially worse than the rates of poverty in Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Texas, according to a new measure of poverty developed by the federal Census Bureau.

Democrat-run California earned its last-place rank under the federal government’s new measure of poverty, which incorporates more detailed analyses of welfare payments and the local costs of food, gasoline and housing. (View the new census data report)

The state’s costs are boosted by its environmental and workplace regulations, and by 38 million residents’ competition for housing close to the sea.

The new measure, however, also incorporates a controversial calculation of relative equality that demotes states, including California, that have wide gaps between wealthy people and people with less than one-third of state residents’ average income.

California snatched the last-place prize from Mississippi, which had the highest poverty rate under the older and simpler measure, which gauged people’s ability to buy basic services and goods.

Democratic California Gov. Gerry Brown’s office did not release a comment Nov. 15 about the new ranking, but did note that he would be attending a housing conference, the “Greenbuild International Conference and Expo,” in San Francisco Nov. 16.

The new measure, dubbed the “Supplemental Poverty Measure,” revised the California’s poverty rate from 16.3 percent up to 23.5 percent.

The report estimates that roughly 8.8 million people in California were poor during between 2009 and 2011, when Democrats controlled the state legislature and governorship, as well as the White House.

The stunning reversal in fortunes for the Democrat-dominated state — once a worldwide symbol of glitz and wealth — is underlined by previous census reports, which showed that only 11.1 percent of the state’s population was poor in 1969.

Only 13.7 percent of Americans were poor in 1969, and many of them were found in the agricultural states of the Old South. A third of Americans in Mississippi, and a quarter of Americans in Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina and Western Virginia, were poor.

Forty years later, after waves of federal and state regulations on housing, banking, health care and air quality, and amid increased financial aid for unmarried parents, youth, immigrants and unskilled people, the national poverty rate has climbed to 15.8 percent, according to the new Census Bureau measure.

The new measure supplants a poverty gauge developed in the 1960s. It incorporates the economic impact of welfare programs, transportation and child-care costs, changes in child-rearing practices — especially the impact of single parents raising kids — plus differences in the region’s average prices and health care costs.

After GMO Labeling Shot Down, Citizens Start Labeling Products Themselves

 Activists and concerned citizens around the world have had enough with corrupt corporations censoring their right to know what’s in their food, and frankly they’re beyond upset. And if the government will not side with the 90 plus percentage of consumers who are in favor of GMO labeling, then they’re going to do it themselves. As it turns out, many are doing just that through the ‘DIY’ GMO labeling campaign known as ‘The Label It Yourself Campaign’. Sporting a skull with cornstalks for crossbones, the DIY labels inform customers as to whether or not a product ‘may’ include GMO ingredients or most certainly does.

Police Taser Homeowner For Trying To Save Burning House With Garden Hose

The fire was all around Dan Jensen.

He could see it. He could smell it. He could hear it.

It was close enough to touch. It was burning down his neighbor's house. It was creeping toward Jensen's own fence 10 feet away, and he started spraying the fire with his hose.

Police ordered Jensen to get back, and he complied.

But after a few minutes passed without firefighters arriving, a frustrated Jensen stepped forward and leaned down to grab the skinny gray garden hose once again.

That's when he heard the order.

"Hit 'em! Take him down! Tase him!"

Within moments, Jensen was on the ground. He felt electric.

"It was all over me," Jensen said. "Crawling all over me."

The 42-year-old commercial fisherman is still struggling to comprehend exactly how things deteriorated so quickly Thursday. He said he doesn't understand why police shot him with a Taser that night as he tried to battle a house fire at 3420 Beechwood Ter. N.

Jensen's family, friends and neighbors have been quick to defend him and accuse police of crossing a line.

"It was wrong," he said. "There's no way around it. … I was fighting a fire. I wasn't fighting police. I thought they were here to help me. Instead, they hurt me."

Detroit Could Go Bankrupt Before End Of Year

When I bloged over 2 years ago that US Cities would soon be bankrupt I gots lots of remarks like "Where do you get this crap" and "oh No the sky is falling" or "Stop the fear mongering." Whelp according to CNN "641 cases of municipal bankruptcy have been filed." See Here
Now Detroit is on the brink...So go ahead and guffaw and twitter and tell me every thing is OK....Don't wake the sheeple and do turn on the game.....

Detroit’s financial condition is rapidly deteriorating, and City Hall could run out of cash in December, an official told a state oversight board Monday.

City program management director William Andrews made the assessment at a meeting of the Financial Advisory Board, a city-state panel overseeing Detroit’s finances under its fiscal stability agreement with the state.

Detroit’s cash-flow crisis is “more challenging than it’s ever been and more challenged than we reported last month,” Andrews said.

The city must find new revenue sources, he said, blaming the worsening outlook on rising medical expenses and lower receipts from taxes and other revenue sources than the city had previously projected.

“Those aren’t materializing,” Andrews said.

Projections show Detroit’s cash on hand dropping as low as $3.6 million by Dec. 21. It stood at $53 million on Friday.

To keep afloat, the state will be asked to release about $30 million in bond funding from an escrow account under the consent agreement.

But before they cut a check, Lansing will want the City Council to allow an independent firm to look through the city’s operations for more money.

Advisory board chairwoman Sandy Pierce said that despite Michigan voters’ repeal last week of the state’s emergency manager law, the financial stability agreement and the advisory board remain intact.

But she said Detroit may no longer impose new contracts or employment terms or reject collective bargaining agreements unilaterally.

The primary foundation of the consent agreement wasn’t the now-repealed Public Act 4, but rather a state law on intergovernmental agreements and related state laws.

After hearing from Andrews, the board began a closed session to discuss the impact of the repeal of the emergency manager law on Detroit’s consent agreement.

Mayor Dave Bing and four City Council members participated.

Bing and Gov. Rick Snyder agreed in April on state oversight as an alternative to a state financial takeover.

"O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle -- be Thou near them! With them -- in spirit -- we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved fire sides to smite the foe.
 O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells;
help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead
help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain;
help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire;
help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst,
sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it
-- for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen."

Why American & European Fruits And Vegetables Have No Flavor

GMOs aren’t the only nasty thing from Agribusiness. Breeding for mass production instead of taste and nutrition has cost us. Little produce in supermarkets has flavor worth the trouble of eating, & the lack of nutrition is destroying health.

The first time I went to a grocery store after moving to the US, I literally jumped in joy at the opulence of it all. It was 1989, and the Berlin wall was six months away from being toppled. Having grown up in socialist India, I had never before seen anything like this amazing symbol of American consumerism known as, SAFEWAY!

I danced and danced down the wide aisles of the huge grocery store, and rode the supermarket trolley like it was a mini-scooter, admiring the extraordinary variety of every category of, er, stuff. Eighteen types of toothpaste, twenty yogurts, an entire aisle dedicated to varieties of soda pop, wow!
The fruits and vegetables were perfectly waxed and huge compared to the little discolored runts found in India. I marveled as my host-mother Marlene selected these enormous, beautiful tomatoes and white onions and a head of lettuce that was bigger than my own head.

We went back home, and I helped her make this wonderful looking salad, and we sat down to eat.

I bit into a slice of tomato, ready for the burst of fresh flavor to attack my tongue.

And … nothing!

I blinked. I ate another slice. Same result.

The lettuce leaf was also just a watery bite of nothing. Deflated, I followed my host mother’s suggestion and loaded up my salad with some sugary honey mustard dressing.

Now, my dear American consumer friends, I have a question. How is it that the wealthiest nation on the planet produces the worst tasting vegetables and fruits?

The main reason is actually a scientific one.

It turns out that fruits and vegetables that ripen more consistently are also flavorless. In the wild, tomatoes ripen inconsistently. There is an evolution/natural selection pressure that favors this because inconsistent ripening allows the tomatoes a greater chance to be eaten by birds and animals, thereby allowing for those seeds to spread and germinate.

However, there is a genetic mutation that allows uniform ripening that affects a percentage of tomatoes, and this genetic change also happens to make the tomatoes less nutritious and flavorful.

The full explanation on this mutation is found in Scientists Find Gene Behind Ripe, Tasteless Tomatoes..

Now think about this. There are two broad categories of tomatoes.

Type 1 is full of nutrition and flavor, but this type ripens inconsistently, and comes in all kinds of colour shades, shapes and textures.

Type 2 looks perfectly shaped, is in a uniform color, shows perfect behavior and ripens uniformly, but it also happens to have no flavor and little nutrition.

If you were a big US grocery chain, even a purportedly organic one, which type of tomato would you stock?

If you guessed Type 2, you would be right, and you would also solve the mystery of why not only American tomatoes, but the vast majority of fruits and vegetables in the USA have no flavor and are less nutritious compared to fruits and vegetables found in, say, a much-poorer country like India.

It is also true that most American consumers have never really tasted decent fruits and vegetables and they don’t know the difference. This largely explains why when Americans go abroad, to Italy or Japan or India, and taste real vegetables for the first time, it is a major eye-opener!
Implications for Health

What happens when we eat these tasteless vegetables? Actually, the reality is that even flavorless vegetables and fruits are quite nutritious and good for you; if this were not the case, no grocery store would stock or sell them.

The problem is more indirect. When healthy food is tasteless, our taste buds will simply guide us towards junk food like chips, sugary drinks, and saturated fats, so instead of a tasteless salad, we end up preferring to eat burgers and fries.

The golden rule of public health is that we have to make healthy food taste good. Think how wonderful a Mediterranean diet tastes like! This diet is difficult to follow in the US because the same vegetables that are so yummy in Greece taste like nothing in the US. There is a mountain of difference between freshly-grated parmesan cheese, and the pre-packaged mass-market crappy shite that passes for parmesan in grocery stores.

40 Outrageous Facts Most People Don't Know

Once you go down the rabbit hole, you will discover things that most people don't know. Here are 40 outrageous facts that most people are clueless about.

1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed. Pg. 816)

3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921. (41 Stat. Ch.214 pg. 654)

4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents Volume 29-No.4 pg. 113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288)

5. The United States does not have any employees because there is no longer a United States. No more reorganizations. After over 200 years of operating under bankruptcy its finally over.

6. The FCC, CIA, FBI, NASA and all of the other alphabet gangs were never part of the United States government. Even though the "US Government" held shares of stock in the various Agencies. (U.S. V. Strang , 254 US 491, Lewis v. US, 680 F.2d, 1239)

7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF. The Application for a Social Security Number is the SS5 form. The Department of the Treasury (IMF) issues the SS5 not the Social Security Administration. The new SS5 forms do not state who or what publishes them, the earlier SS5 forms state that they are Department of the Treasury forms. You can get a copy of the SS5 you filled out by sending form SSA-L996 to the SS Administration. (20 CFR chapter 111, subpart B 42 2.103 (b) (2) (2) Read the cites above)

8. There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statutes and Codes. (FRC v. GE 281 US 464, Keller v. PE 261 US 428, 1 Stat. 138-178)

11. We have One World Government, One World Law and a One World Monetary System.

12. The UN is a One World Super Government.

13. No one on this planet has ever been free. This planet is a Slave Colony. There has always been a One World Government. It is just that now it is much better organized and has changed its name as of 1945 to the United Nations.

14. New York City is defined in the Federal Regulations as the United Nations. Rudolph Gulliani stated on C-Span that "New York City was the capital of the World" and he was correct. (20 CFR chapter 111, subpart B 422.103 (b) (2) (2)

15. Social Security is not insurance or a contract, nor is there a Trust Fund. (Helvering v. Davis 301 US 619, Steward Co. V. Davis 301 US 548.)

16. Your Social Security check comes directly from the IMF which is an Agency of the UN. (Look at it if you receive one. It should have written on the top left United States Treasury.)

17. You own no property, slaves can't own property. Read the Deed to the property that you think is yours. You are listed as a Tenant. (Senate Document 43, 73rd Congress 1st Session)

20. The King of England financially backed both sides of the Revolutionary war. (Treaty at Versailles July 16, 1782, Treaty of Peace 8 Stat 80)

From Fantasy To Fact: Four Ways The Fake Media Creates A False Reality

The mainstream media has abused its power. The global alternative media is demanding accountability.

1. Hyper-attention On A Particular Event, Issue, and Mantra.

The mainstream media exclusively focuses on a single storyline about an event or an issue, which has the effect of marginalizing other points of view that are equally valid, if not more so. Narratives, not facts and objective data, have taken center stage in the aspiring journalist’s mind. Journalists and editors who oversee the making of the news play the same role as screenwriters in the filmmaking process. Their power stems from the fact that the public looks at news as “real,” whereas they know movies are totally fake. But news in the United States and the West is the farthest thing from being real.

Journalists who are in the service of the U.S. intelligence community and other government intelligence agencies are messengers for power. Their job is to repeat government narratives and government mantras. For example, Al-Qaeda is a mantra, not an international terror organization that is at war with America. Read, “Al Qaeda And Human Consciousness: Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda. . . . An Incessant And Repetitive Public Discourse,” by Prof Michel Chossudovsky. The “Arab Spring” is another mantra that Washington has used to fulfill its foreign policy objectives in the Middle East.

The latest mantra that the mainstream media is using in a domestic context is the “fiscal cliff.” Media messengers for the tyrannical establishment do not discuss how the Federal Reserve’s private money machine, Wall Street bailouts, and the military-industrial complex’s wars have caused the skyrocketing of U.S. debt. They just keep repeating “fiscal cliff,” and then offer bipartisan solutions that will benefit the banksters in power while destroying the living standards of middle class taxpayers and workers.

By focusing on the “fiscal cliff,” rather than the Grand Canyon of Deception that is the unconstitutional Federal Reserve system, the mainstream media legitimizes the looting and pillaging of the American people by the transnational banksters.

2. Production of Fake News Reports.

War propaganda is not a new feature of warfare, but the modern Western mass media has taken this art to its highest technological development. What the American, Israeli, and Western media accomplished on the day of September 11, 2001, is simply astonishing. 9/11 was a riveting Hollywood production, from start to finish, from morning to nightfall. It made Hitler’s propaganda team weep from the beyond. But the official 9/11 story is just one example of how news is manufactured by the government in tandem with the press.

Examples abound in Syria. Propaganda stations like CNN, Al Jazeera, and BBC have reported on fake massacres by the Syrian government, made up the size of anti-Assad protests, and generally exaggerated the intensity of the hatred for Assad within Syria. We cannot rely on the official number of the people who have died in the conflict because the malicious media routinely makes up figures and repeats them until they become accredited as facts.

Up to now, the Western media has painted a very rosy picture of the anti-Assad “rebels” who are foreign-funded Jihadist terrorists, while minimizing the suffering and needless deaths of Assad’s supporters like Syrian-Palestinian actor Mohamad Rafea.

We can clearly see that the revolution in Syria is an imagined revolution and not a real revolution. The Arab Spring is not like an organic plague that spreads from country to country. The U.S., Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia transported the Arab Spring into Syria, and it met resistance from the politically aware Syrian people and the powerful Syrian state. This is natural because there was never a demand for a violent Jihadi revolution in Syria. The anti-government sentiments in Syria never reached the level of despair, unlike in Egypt, Bahrain, and other countries in the region.

3. Omission of Facts and Alternative Opinions.

Since the mainstream media operates in a politically constructed universe, facts that contradict the word of the U.S. government are suppressed. The integrity of the fake universe is preserved at the cost of destroying the real universe.

Those who have a different opinion of events that transformed America like 9/11 and the 2008 bankster bailout are ridiculed as crazy. When you express alternative opinions that conflict with the official narratives of the U.S. government you are accused of being paranoid, conspiracy theorizing, aiding Al-Qaeda, and drumming up fear for ratings. To learn more about how media propaganda against dissent works, read, “The Propaganda Battlefield: Militants Abroad, Conspiracy Theorists At Home.”

Canceling out reality may work for a while, but it has the last word. It is getting harder for the mainstream media to ridicule independent investigators as conspiracy theorists for pointing out that the U.S. and its dictatorial allies are sponsoring Jihadi terrorism against Syria. Even mainline journalists are beginning to admit it. How can they not? It is pretty tough to cover-up reality.

There are videos of Jihadist mercenaries mass executing civilians and the Western media spin machine is powerless in the face of this kind of explosive evidence. They will just look foolish if they say mass executions by anti-government terrorists isn’t happening and that all the blame for the crisis in Syria falls on Assad’s shoulders.

4. Mass Indoctrination of The Public Through Myth and Ritual.

The example of the 9/11 ritual proves that we think mythically, not rationally. It is easy for a totalitarian government with vast media resources to condition the public and put it under a spell indefinitely. The trouble arises with the arrival of a competing narrative, one that is actually based on scientific facts as opposed to propaganda.

But a sustained media campaign to brainwash the public in combination with the trauma of terror can effectively keep the public under the government’s spell for a very long time. Read, “Seven Ways Events Like 7/7 Empower Socialized Warfare,” to learn about the effectiveness of false flag terrorism. Also, read, “7 Reasons Washington’s Grand Counter-Terrorism Myths Persist In The Face of Evidence.”

What is it about mass public rituals that galvanize political leaders and embolden them to take radical action that otherwise would not be accepted by the majority of the public? They are trigger events that create mass panic and chaos, resulting in greater government power over the minds of spellbound citizens. Martin S. Day, author of the book, ‘The Many Meanings of Myth,’ says there are six sociological purposes of cultural and social rituals, and you can read them here.

When an entire civilization is emotionally and intellectually invested in a particular myth, it is nearly impossible to divorce the civilization from the myth. How has the 9/11 myth benefited Western civilization? In terms of war, the West has been politically able to wage aggression against numerous innocent countries in the Middle East by holding up the 9/11 myth to the rest of the world as a moral justification for its war crimes.

But America and the West has also been destroyed because of the 9/11 myth and the illegitimate global war on terrorism. Economically, politically, morally, intellectually, and spiritually, Western governments are reaching the point of bankruptcy.

Poll: Nearly One Third Of Americans Would Accept ‘TSA Body Cavity Search’ in Order to Fly

A new survey conducted by Harris Interactive has found that almost one third of American adults would accept a “TSA body cavity search” in order to fly, with a majority of Americans also feeling a law that would make disobeying a TSA agent in any public place illegal is reasonable.

American adults were asked the following question as part of the poll;

“Given the recent reports concerning the threat posed by terrorists who plan to implant bombs within their own bodies, how willing, if at all, would you be to undergo a TSA body cavity search in order to fly?”

A total 30% of American adults said they would be “willing” or “somewhat willing” to accept a body cavity search. 57% would be “completely” or “somewhat unwilling” to submit to it and 13% answered “don’t know”.

How reasonable or unreasonable do you feel it is that travelers should be made by law to obey every command given by a TSA agent inside an airport or any other public place given the threat posed by terrorists?

A total 57% of American adults said this was “completely” or “somewhat reasonable”. A minority of 43% said passing a law that would mandate total obedience to a TSA agent was “completely” or “somewhat unreasonable”. Out of that figure, just 16% thought it was “completely unreasonable”.

Surprisingly given their traditional distrust of big government, 60% of Republicans thought it reasonable compared to 64% of Democrats and 46% of Independents.

In 2008, the Department of Homeland Security expressed an interest in having travelers wear electric shock bracelets that would both track travelers through the airport as well as allow airport officials and flight crews to incapacitate potential terrorists. How willing, if at all, would you be to wear such a bracelet in order to fly?

35% of American adults would be “completely” or “somewhat willing” to wear the shock bracelet, compared to 52% who would be “completely” or “somewhat unwilling”. Republicans were more likely to be willing than Democrats, 41% to 34%.

The Truth About Obamacare

The main source for this review happens to be FDL Action - a well-known, left progressive website.

FEMA Disaster Centers Shut Doors 'Due to Weather'???

They fly into disaster areas, but flee from raindrops.

FEMA disaster recovery centers in Hurricane Sandy-ravaged sections of the city that were supposed to provide assistance to hurricane victims went MIA Wednesday morning, posting signs saying that they were closed due to the approaching Nor'easter.

The temporary shuttering of the facilities, which help victims register for disaster relief, as well as city food distribution centers come even as many of those still reeling from the monster storm were not told that they had to leave the battered areas.

On Tuesday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that residents in the low-lying portions of Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn were advised to leave ahead of the nor'easter, which could hit the city with 60 mph gusts and several inches of rain Wednesday afternoon, but that the evacuation was not mandatory like the one issued for all of Zone A ahead of Sandy.

“We do not believe that it’s necessary to evacuate people,” said the mayor Wednesday.

The move left residents of the storm-ravaged areas fuming.

It's Official: Liberals and Conservatives Becoming Zombies

In the wake of the 2012 Presidential election, the expected gloating over Obama’s victory and sulking over Romney’s defeat by their respective supporters is taking its typical turn toward the absurd, at least for those who are aware of the true lack of choice that was presented in this election.

As every other failed presidential campaign in history has done, the Romney camp will soon come to grips with their loss. The Obama camp, however, will now be presented with four more years of a President who has been and will continue to be identical to the President they claimed to have hated for so many years.

As Obama continues to execute, for another four years, the very same policies implemented by Bush (and by Romney had he been elected), individuals who call themselves “liberals” or “progressives” will be faced with the challenge of defending what they perceive to be “their candidate” irrespective of reality, facts, and common sense.

Like the first four years, self-proclaimed progressives will continue to support the wholesale slaughter of innocent people in foreign countries, indefinite detention, banker bailouts, free trade, and a gross violation of civil liberties and Constitutional rights. While these very acts were once what liberals claimed was fueling their hatred of George W. Bush, it turns out that what passes for a progressive in 2012 is a rejection of war and totalitarianism directed by Republicans – not war and totalitarianism itself.

Indeed, when asking your average Obama fan their reason for such irrational support, one can scarcely receive an answer that does not have its root in false and divisive social paradigms such as his party, his race, or his age. Simply put, Obama supporters main reason for their allegiance to Barack Obama can be boiled down to two words – “He’s Obama!”

Even so, when Obama was first elected in 2008, and in the face of his obvious support for the banker bailout, continued war, and blatant disregard for civil liberties, we critics were met with pleas to “just give him time.” After all, he can’t fix eight years of Bush in one year of his own. This was the same statement that was repeated after Obama’s second year. And then his third. Even his fourth year as President still held echoes of the argument to just “give him time.”
