Indeed it is a sad day when scientific questioning is discarded in favor of facile and overly simplistic models that--whatever their good intentions may have originally been--are clearly flawed and designed only to make easier and more black and white the jobs of social services workers, police and prosecutors. In a telling bit of irony, the tribunal that ultimately led to the pulling of Squier’s license due to her supposed lack of medical expertise consisted of exactly zero medical doctors trained in neurology. They were a retired Air Force officer, a retired cop and a retired psychiatrist.
FDA Tells Cannabidiol Marketers that CBD is Not a Protected Dietary Ingredient In a report circulating the Internet, FDA’s position that Cannabidiol, from the hemp plant, is not “grandfathered” under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 has been questioned by a legal scholar. Ralph Fucetola JD blogged, On February 10, 2016 FDA sent warning letters to certain CBD companies.… Read the rest
The World Bank and Berta Caceres and how they connect to Hillary Clinton There are few people in the world who have had quite the breadth and depth of opposition all lined up against them as did Honduran indigenous activist and environmentalist Berta Caceres. At the time of her recent assassination, likely at the hands of the Honduran secret police, the Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH), listed more than 300 hydroelectric dams planned for Honduras, of which 49 are on COPINH lands.… Read the rest
It might be shocking to some, but the truth is pharmaceutical companies act under an umbrella of protective immunity when it comes to vaccines. There is a little-known but very powerful special court for people who want to sue Big Pharma over vaccines gone wrong, known colloquially as the Vaccine Court, where almost nothing can go wrong for companies. On the other hand, almost nothing can go right for people who have been injured or had loved ones killed by negligent vaccine manufacturers.… Read the rest
In a scorching rebuke to the traditional “science” of forcing Afghani women to undergo “virginity exams,” Human Rights Watch has strongly denounced the practice. For reasons that border on the ludicrous, women are routinely forced to undergo these exams, which are purported to identify “zina,” or sex outside of marriage. Reasons could include if a woman runs away, for instance. Never mind if she might have been running from an abusive situation at home, or even as the result of other sexual trauma. She would still be forced to undergo an examination that amounts to little more than a repeated sexual assault. Or in some cases, women have been forced to undergo the examinations just for sitting next to a man.
Another quote from Dr. Harris’ book makes the point: “Our research unit reviewed all orthopedic surgical procedures performed in three large public hospitals in our local area and found that of about 9000 procedures performed, only about half of the operations performed had been compared to non-operative treatment in randomized trials.”
Clearly the State believes it owns your children and is doing everything it can to subvert parental rights. Equally clearly, you can push back by pounding legislators and other decision makers with a hail of emails refusing to allow these violations. Our human rights & health freedoms are being destroyed. Our control of our children's bodies and our own are being ripped from our hands unless we stop this insanity now.
The creation of the TPP, in the works for over six years now, has been highly secretive with all the major corporate players given a seat at the table in writing the agreement, but with insanely onerous restrictions on who else might have a look. In fact, prior to Congress’ vote to allow the bill “fast-track” status last May, the only way even our elected representatives were allowed to view the text of the agreement was to enter a locked room with no cell phones or recording devices, no aides, and read it on the spot with no opportunity to even make copies.
