Infertility Gene in GMO Corn

rising infertilityWould you believe that the United States is the only industrialized country in the world that does not permit the labeling of GMOs for either fresh or processed foods? However, 14 states have legislation introduced regarding GMO labeling that seems to be going nowhere fast.

Perhaps the most insidious aspect of GMO crop technology is the fact that GM seeds and plants have been programmed to withstand inordinate amounts of herbicide spraying during the growing season. Herbicide spraying contaminates crops with more pesticides than ever before due to crop abilities to withstand pesticide saturation. We know the dramatic health problems herbicides and pesticides cause, but we really don’t know the health problems GMOs will cause. However, the CRIIGEN rat study confirms cancerous tumors! We do know GMOs are endocrine disruptors; they produce new protein coatings that have never been seen, plus mutations occur in the gene splicing process. What will that cause?

However, the most insidious of all, I think, is the Epicyte gene patented in 2001, which can prevent human conception. It was ‘contraceptive corn’ developed by the biotech company Epicyte, which Monsanto and DuPont bought out and subsequently commercialized the Epicyte gene. What that gene does is creates human antibodies that attack sperm. More…

Eisenhower rejected military chiefs’ demand for nuclear war on China, classified account of ’58 Taiwan Strait crisis reveals
by Gareth Porter
Posted July 24, 2021

US military wanted nuclear war with ChinaA previously censored account of the 1958 Taiwan Strait crisis that was sponsored by the Pentagon has been published in full by the leaker of the Pentagon Papers, Daniel Ellsberg. The report provides a hair-raising portrait of a reckless US military leadership relentlessly pressing President Dwight Eisenhower for the authority to carry out nuclear attacks on communist China.

After holding the still-classified version of the account in his possession for fifty years, Ellsberg said he decided to release it because of the growing threat of US war with China over Taiwan, and the danger that such a conflict could escalate into a nuclear exchange.

A May 22 New York Times report on the account offered only general details of the role the US Joint Chiefs of Staff played in the run-up to the 1958 Taiwan crisis. However, it is now clear from the original highly classified documents as well as other evidence now available that from the beginning, the Joint Chiefs aimed first and foremost to exploit the tensions to carry out nuclear strikes against Chinese nuclear military targets deep in highly-populated areas.

Minnesota Police Expected Pipeline Budget Boost to Fund New Weapons

police receiving windfall from pipeline corporationThe same cops tasked with policing resistance to pipelines anticipate financial benefits from oil companies moving into their areas.

Shanai Matteson, who is from Aitkin County and currently lives at a pipeline resistance camp in the area, said that she’s seen police officers escorting Enbridge trucks and machinery as well as sitting with pipeline security at construction sites. “How can we pretend this is a neutral response?” she said. “They are expecting some kind of benefit longterm from the pipeline. To me that says a lot about their motivations for protecting Enbridge and protecting their worksites.”

“They clearly have a belief or awareness that there is a pot of gold should they succeed in stopping the water protectors from being able to stop Line 3,” said Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund’s Center for Protest Law and Litigation and an attorney representing water protectors. “This deputy is obviously looking to line the county sheriff’s armory with this money.” More…

The facts:
Police who are using their public positions to protect private interests and are receiving financial benefits from these same private interests.

Reflect On:
Are these police forces not acting as defacto mercenaries for private financial interests under the cover provided by being “public servants”?
Isn’t this sort of merger of corporate and state not the very definition of fascism?

epicyte gene causes sterlityIn 2001, Epicyte, a California bio-engineering company, revealed that it had created spermicidal GM (Genetically Modified) corn. So how do you know if you have consumed this fertility-destroying corn? You don’t…because products containing GM corn aren’t labeled with a warning.

According to research cited by Whole Foods Market, in 2011, 88% of the commercial corn was GM modified. Does all 88% of corn have this Epicyte gene? We really don’t know. And that’s a problem. But if someone I loved was trying for a pregnancy (male AND female), I’d say just avoid anything with corn in it unless you know it’s grown from an “Heirloom Seed”.

But the problem doesn’t end with the Epicyte Spermicidal gene that man has shoved into the DNA of the corn. There are two other major GMO gene villains in most commercial corn: More…

Web of DebtThe state of New Jersey, its 21 county governments and 565 localities hold billions of public monies in private banks. These funds are managed by commercial banks and have been used to bankroll destructive enterprises such as private prisons, immigrant detention centers, assault weapon manufacturers, fossil-fuel infrastructure and additional properties that prioritize profit over ethical and moral decision-making. Some of these institutions also engaged in risky and fraudulent practices that collapsed the global markets during the 2008 financial crisis, particularly in the mortgage derivatives segment.

Now New Jersey has an opportunity to build an alternative banking operation through locally controlled, ethically, socially and environmentally responsible public banks that will permit cities and counties to recapture public dollars and have a say over community financing.

The idea of creating this type of public entity for New Jersey was first proposed as a campaign promise by then gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy in 2017, but the only step that has been taken toward achieving that goal was a 2019 executive order that created and appointed a 14-member implementation board. With a large influx of over $10 billion from American Rescue Plan allocations coming to the state over the next two years, it is now time to successfully implement this plan by taking advantage of this immediate cash inflow — the necessary start-up liquidity required to establish the banking enterprise.

This is Why Big Pharma Doesn’t Want Covid to End

big pharma profitsI know it sounds like conspiracy theory. But you should know it, and know it’s true. Big Pharma seems to be betting that Covid will go permanent, so its profits go through the roof, and makes one of the biggest fortunes in human history.

You doubt me, probably, and I don’t blame you — who could really be that cynical? It’s one thing to profiteer off a pandemic — but permanently? Come on. That’s paranoid!

So don’t take it from me. Take it from the horse’s mouth.

“In early February, Pfizer CFO Frank D’Amelio described Pfizer’s $19.50-per-dose price as ‘pandemic pricing’ and ‘that’s not a normal price like we typically get for a vaccine, $150, $175 per dose.’”

D’Amelio said later in the same call, “Now let’s go beyond a pandemic-pricing environment, the environment we’re currently in. Obviously, we’re going to get more on price. And clearly, to your point, the more volume we put through our factories, the lower unit cost will become. So clearly, there’s a significant opportunity for those margins to improve once we get beyond the pandemic environment that we’re in.” More…

Ministry of Truth 2.0

The Ministry of TruthSecretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas is reportedly considering the development of tools that would help America’s children discern truth from lies and know when they are being fed “disinformation.”

The Washington Times, which first reported the story, says a department spokesperson declined to give details, but that more information would be revealed “in the coming weeks.”

Should anyone, regardless of political party or persuasion, be comfortable with government telling especially children what they can believe and whom they can trust? This is what totalitarian states do. It’s called propaganda.

We are already inundated with political correctness, cancel culture, and woke-ism. TV networks spend more time delivering opinion and slanting stories to particular points of view than what once resembled—if not objective journalism—then at least fairness.

The list of government officials who have lied is long and dates back to the founders of the nation. Some lies could be defended on national security grounds. Others were used to cover up wrongdoing or enhance the image of the one who lied. More…

Orange County Prosecutors Operate “Vast, Secretive” Genetic Surveillance Program

Orange County Prosecutors Operate “Vast, Secretive” Genetic Surveillance Program
by Jordan Smith
Posted July 20, 2021

growing collection of DNA by law enforcementStates have long maintained DNA databases containing the profiles of people convicted of felony crimes as well as unknown profiles developed from crime scene evidence. But those systems are created by legislation, strictly regulated, and publicly funded. They typically link up to the Combined DNA Index System, a nationwide network administered by the FBI that was built with the goal of helping to solve and deter crime.

In contrast, the Orange County database is unregulated and targets individuals charged with some of the lowest-level misdemeanor offenses imaginable — generating DNA samples that, by law, cannot be uploaded to CODIS. It is the only known DNA database in the country run by prosecutors, who now routinely predicate many misdemeanor plea deals or case dismissals on an individual agreeing to give up their genetic privacy. As of 2019, the database contained nearly 200,000 DNA profiles, making it far larger than many state-run, legislatively created DNA databases.

The scheme is questionably legal and ethically dubious. “The prosecution of marginal petty misdemeanor cases has allowed prosecutors to create a vast genetic surveillance system that would otherwise not exist,” University of California, Berkeley law professor Andrea Roth wrote in a 2019 law review article on the OCDA program, known locally as “spit and acquit.” Roth was the first to do a deep dive into the “vast, secretive” database.

Oracle Boasted That Its Software Was Used Against U.S. Protesters. Then It Took the Tech to China.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison believes NSA spying is As tens of thousands of people flooded into Chicago’s streets, carrying signs that read “FOOD NOT BOMBS” and “NO TO WAR AND AUSTERITY,” McLoughlin was one of several organizers who posted updates on Occupy Chicago’s two Twitter accounts, sharing information on planned march routes and where protesters could find food and lodging. Newly discovered documents show that many of his tweets likely ended up flowing through CIA-funded data analytics software accessed by police.

According to the documents and to video presentations, CPD used a tool called Endeca Information Discovery, a product from tech giant Oracle, to merge crime records, 911 calls, and other routine police information with protesters’ tweets.

Oracle claims that Endeca helps police and other agencies make sense of mounds of big data. Like the more well-known government analytics software Palantir Gotham, the software owes its rise to “war on terror” surveillance and to backing from the CIA venture capital firm In-Q-Tel. Oracle acquired Endeca in 2011. More…

New Report and Scorecard Shows Which Retailers Are Using Facial Recognition on Shoppers, Employees

New Report and Scorecard Shows Which Retailers Are Using Facial Recognition on Shoppers, Employees
by Caitlin Seeley George
Posted July 19, 2021

Corporations using facial recognitionDigital rights group Fight for the Future has launched a new website and scorecard that tracks whether or not top retailers use, don’t use, or might use facial recognition on people in their stores. Walmart, Albertsons, Kroger, Lowes, and Macy’s are among the stores flagged as using facial recognition on shoppers and workers. Walgreens, McDonald’s, 7-11, and Best Buy are among retailers that have not clarified their policies. Home Depot, Target, Costco, CVS, Dollar Tree, and Verizon confirmed to Fight for the Future that they are not using facial recognition in their stores.

In fact, according to Senator Ron Wyden, the Pentagon is already using surveillance data purchased from corporations to evade warrant requirements. Facial recognition systems used by police around the country have led to false arrests of Black people, and disabled students have been sounding the alarm about discriminatory biometric monitoring in education throughout the pandemic. Last year, Portland, Oregon, became the first city in the country to ban commercial use of facial recognition in places of public accommodation, with one City Commissioner stating: “1984 by George Orwell is a dystopian novel, not a business plan.”

Fight for the Future demands that retailers using facial recognition stop immediately, and is calling on lawmakers to pass legislation that bans stores and other corporations from using facial recognition. More…

The Facts:
Government is using corporations as a tool to circumvent privacy laws.

Reflect On:
Is a person who is under 24 hour surveillance really someone who is free? Can we resist these Orwellian tools by not patronizing corporations who are helping to implement these Orwellian systems?

Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.

It is obvious that the US government is destroying Assange to signal to journalists the consequences of publishing information. It is therefore also obvious that any journalist who fails to use whatever platform they have to speak out against Assange’s persecution has no intention of ever publishing anything that the US government doesn’t want published. Their silence on or support for what is being done to this man can and should be taken as an admission that they are nothing other than state propagandists.
