Vaccine-induced tissue damage almost universally misdiagnosed as child abuse

Vaccine-induced tissue damage almost universally misdiagnosed as child abuse

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) Imagine agreeing to have your child vaccinated as part of the typical pediatric process, only to have your little one suddenly come down with a mystery disease following the shots, for which you get falsely accused of child abuse. This is increasingly the case with “mystery” conditions like Kawasaki disease, Reye’s syndrome, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and various other related afflictions that a prominent doctor recently exposed as being misdiagnoses of vaccine-induced tissue damage.

Dr. Michael Innis, a retired hematologist from Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia, recently published a paper in the journal

Clinical Medicine Research

that addresses this general phenomenon of tissue scurvy, a vaccine-induced autoimmune disorder that inhibits the body from properly metabolizing vitamin C. Because of a lack of insulin, vitamin C is prevented from passing out of the bloodstream and into the cells where it is needed, resulting in a host of symptoms that mainstream medicine has erroneously classified as “non-accidental injury,” or child abuse.

This alleged child abuse takes many forms, including as the aforementioned diseases which have sent many a parent to prison. But Dr. Innis’ paper reveals that each one of these disorders has a common link which cannot be attributed to physical trauma. To the contrary, hyperglycemia, or a lack of insulin resulting from antigenic stress caused by vaccines, is the common denominator in all of these diseases, and the one that serves as the smoking gun in vindicating falsely accused parents of crimes they did not actually commit.

“The many faces of tissue scurvy in childhood include sudden infant death syndrome, alleged non-accidental injury, shaken baby syndrome, abusive head trauma, inflicted brain injury, Reye’s syndrome, Kawasaki disease, anaphylaxis and diabetes type I,” wrote Dr. Innis, who decided to conduct his research after desperate parents sought him out in search of answers.

“All have one feature in common — hyperglycemia, the signature of insulin deficiency resulting from vaccines, and other forms of antigenic stress which

damage

the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans resulting in hypoinsulinemia and tissue scurvy.”

Misdiagnosed child abuse and the great vaccine coverup

Dr. Innis’ observations are groundbreaking in that they expose the deeply embedded corruption within the vaccine industry. This is further evidenced by the fact that vaccine-induced tissue scurvy was discovered at least as far back as 1962, when a doctor by the name of Archie Kalokerinos first identified its presence in Australian Aborigine children.

After observing an extremely high death rate among children recently vaccinated, Dr. Kalokerinos, being an honest and inquisitive physician, decided to investigate the situation further. He discovered not only that vaccines were the culprit but that administering high doses of vitamin C either intramuscularly or intravenously helped reverse the symptoms.

“I observed that many infants, after they received routine vaccines like tetanus, diptheria, polio, whooping cough or whatever, became ill,” he explained in the June 1995 issue of the

International Vaccine Newsletter

, as excerpted in a recent piece by

VacTruth.com

‘s Christina England. “[W]ith some of these reactions which normally resulted in death, I found that I could reverse them by giving large amounts of vitamin C intramuscularly or intravenously.”

Eager to share his discovery with public health officials in the interest of saving children’s lives, Dr. Kalokerinos alerted the government about vaccine-induced tissue scurvy and its apparent remedy, high-dose vitamin C. But rather than welcome this information, the government actually attacked Dr. Kalokerinos, showing its true colors as what he suggests is a purveyor of death and disease rather than health and life.

“After studying more than 50 SBS cases, I have yet to find one where a detailed analysis of the complete individual or family history, or a proper evaluation of all the necessary coagulation/bleeding factors was undertaken,” he stated during a later interview, noting that the same government policy of ignoring both the cause and the remedy of tissue scurvy is still the norm. “Often, a diagnosis of trauma due to shaking is made at an early stage and any further investigation is considered unnecessary.”

Hurricane warnings wildly exaggerated by NOAA to terrorize Americans about climate change

Hurricane warnings wildly exaggerated by NOAA to terrorize Americans about climate change

http://ift.tt/2e31hCT

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) When Matt Drudge, founder of the popular

Drudge Report

news headline aggregation site, tweeted out recently that the federal government’s preeminent weather agency might be just a bit politicized under the policy direction of President Obama, the “scientific” media went ballistic.

Guess Drudge must have hit a nerve or something.

As Hurricane Matthew was battering the Caribbean on its way to the Florida coastline, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which was tracking the storm and warning of its potential to develop into a Category 4 monster with winds over 150 miles per hour, Drudge was tweeting out that the agency’s warnings might be just a bit overplayed:

Hurricane Center has no monopoly on data. No way of verifying claims. Nassau ground observations DID NOT match statements! 165mph gusts? WHERE?

Drudge was making accurate observations about what NOAA was saying and the reality on the ground.

In addition, Drudge

invoked a term

used by Democratic presidential

nominee Hillary Clinton

to describe half of

GOP opponent

Donald J. Trump’s supporters in a follow-up tweet that questioned NOAA’s sincerity:

The deplorables are starting to wonder if govt has been lying to them about Hurricane Matthew intensity to make exaggerated point on climate

These tweets prompted much consternation and response from establishment scientific journals and organizations that have bought into the whole government “climate change” narrative hook, line and sinker,

including Popular Science

, which ran a piece headlined, “Don’t Take Weather Advice From Matt Drudge – Seriously, Stay Safe.”

“And then there was Matt Drudge, who was instead declaring a state of conspiracy,” wrote Grennan Milliken of

PopSci

. “The founder of the Drudge Report spent his evening blasting out tweets that the storm’s forecast was grossly overblown. He even went so far as to accuse the government of exaggerating Hurricane Matthew’s intensity just to make a point about the dangers of

climate change

. Not kidding. What. The. Bleep.”

Of course, it is easy to denigrate opinions that go against the status quo.

PopSci

wasn’t the only outlet that picked up his tweeted statements and ran with them. Many questioned Drudge’s judgment and intelligence. Some even dragged other conservative media figures into the mix, such as

Rush Limbaugh

– all because they and others have dared question the government’s nonsensical (and unproven) claims that modern human activity is responsible for changing weather patterns.

What Drudge was questioning was the Obama administration’s (and Hillary Clinton’s) narrative on global warming, climate change, and climate shift. This past September, Clinton herself

tied Hurricane Hermine to man-made climate change

, saying it was “another reminder of the devastation that extreme weather can cause…”

Yes, hurricanes happen. But, mankind isn’t causing them.

There are

30 peer-reviewed studies

that debunk the so-called “link” between hurricanes and global warming/climate change, despite Clinton’s (and Obama’s) claims that the link is “real” and that it’s “established science.”

Tell that to green guru James Lovelock, who now believes the ‘issue’ of climate change is nothing more than a fabricated problem for political purposes.

“Anyone who tries to predict more than five to 10 years is a bit of an idiot, because so many things can change unexpectedly,” he

told The Guardian

last month. “CO2 is going up, but nowhere near as fast as they thought it would. The computer models just weren’t reliable. In fact,

I’m not sure the whole thing isn’t crazy, this climate change

[emphasis added]. You’ve only got to look at Singapore. It’s two-and-a-half times higher than the worst-case scenario for climate change, and it’s one of the most desirable cities in the world to live in.”

Who is Lovelock? A British independent scientist who

introduced the Gaia theory

to the world, a hypothesis that is now accepted as a leading principle in climate science.

This is the hypocrisy and misguided “science” that Drudge was attempting to showcase. And he was right.

This November, vote for food and medicine freedom – Top 4 reasons NOT to vote for Hillary!

This November, vote for food and medicine freedom – Top reasons NOT to vote for Hillary!

http://ift.tt/2dNW06E

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) For many Americans, neither candidate for President, in their eyes, is suited for the job, and they’d much rather vote for Mickey Mouse than to choose from the current front-runners. But the main problem is that one of the candidates will surely infringe upon personal freedoms that make a huge difference in health for all members of the family, including adults, children, infants, and babies on the way.

If you think there’s no difference regarding food and medical freedoms at stake in this election, you couldn’t be more gravely mistaken. One candidate is massively funded by corporations, lobbyists, biotechnology companies, pharmaceutical regimes, and Wall Street. In 2014, that same candidate openly stated at the

Biotechnology Industry Organization

(BIO) convention in San Diego that food genetically engineered to contain pesticides is something we should all want.

1. Hillary Clinton is the Bride of Frankenfood and has already sold out to the Kings of GMO–Monsanto (now owned by Bayer)

Hillary Clinton (of the Clinton Crime Family) is a shill for biotech, regurgitating their very own scripted language and twisted terms used to falsely describe cancer-causing and Alzheimer’s-causing food that has besieged our staple food and caused chronic damage to the environment. Hillary talks the biotech game language, throwing propaganda terms around to help pad her own pockets and to help fund her campaign for President, which is falling apart at the seams.

Most Americans are quickly waking up to the dangers of GMOs, figuring out the real research that’s revealing lab animals dying from horrific cancer tumors, children exacerbating allergies and autism, and the elderly losing their memories and their collective minds faster and younger than ever before. It’s not a coincidence. Crooked politicians will say anything to get more money to gain more power, and that’s all that “Hitlery” Clinton is about. She’s been figured out. Simply put, a vote for Clinton is a vote for Monsanto.

2. Hillary will continue Obama’s raiding of organic farms and natural supplement distributors

Like no other president in the history of this country, Obama has been relentless at having his stooges–heavily armed regulatory goons from the FDA, USDA, DEA, EPA, and DHS–raid organic farms in order to destroy, intimidate, and annihilate, by example, anyone who defies his poisoned, corporate-infested country full of GM corn, soy, canola, and cottonseed.

Obama has opened the GMO doors wide, hiring biotech industry insiders to run the FDA, and if Hillary were to win the election next month, the reign of terror would simply continue and get even worse. Stand up for organic

food

and organic farmers and refuse to vote for a tyrannical regime that illegally destroys hard working farmers who actually care about the health and livelihood of their customers and a sustainable environment.

3. Hillary and the Clinton Crime Family will continue to attack natural medicine doctors and bury the cures for cancer

Just last year, eleven cancer cure doctors were all found dead within months, and each death fell under

suspicious circumstances

. Why would the government of the United States have nearly a dozen holistic doctors murdered? The doctors had discovered an enzyme protein (nagalase) present in vaccines that causes disease and disorder, including cancer and autism.

Make no mistake, Big Pharma, the vaccine industry, and the cancer industrial complex of America is filthy rich and awfully powerful.

4. Hillary supports forced mass vaccination of infants, children and adults

Let’s be very clear here: Globalists like Bill Gates, who contributes heavily to the

Clinton regime

, believe in depopulation and reducing the world’s population by the billions, as he has clearly stated can be done through the use of vaccines. This is why flu shots are free and the government wants mandatory vaccinations for all pregnant women, babies, children, teens and adults across America.

It’s not a conspiracy theory. Vaccines still contain mercury, aluminum, monosodium glutamate (MSG), embalming fluid for the dead (formaldehyde), peanut oil, genetically modified viruses, and live versions of experimental diseases like Zika, Swine, and Bird Flu. Vaccines are already mandatory in the state of California, and if Clinton had her way, no human being living in America could ever be exempt for any reason from getting every single toxic jab the CDC concocts and “recommends” (enforces at gunpoint).

Proof Trump actually cares about organic food and medical freedom

Go online and take a look at most of Donald Trump’s hotels and restaurants and you will find that he

promotes organic food

in most of them, so he’ll probably not be “owned” by Monsanto and Bayer when it comes to food regulations. Plus, Trump has spoken out about too many vaccines too close together causing autism.

For the first time in decades, a possible new President won’t be “owned” by the corporations that pump money into campaigns and then demand their poisonous products get pushed on the American people with no regulations. Trump is our best chance at preserving and promoting food and medical freedom. Be intelligent and resourceful. Get out to the polls and state your case!

There are amazing health benefits from drinking camel’s milk

There are amazing health benefits from drinking camel’s milk

http://ift.tt/2e31aH6

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) Before you dismiss drinking camel’s milk as yet another exotic and unappetizing health trend, you should consider the fact that it’s been used for more than 5000 years, not only as a survival food but also for its remarkable disease-fighting properties.

Recent research has shown that camel milk is effective in treating and preventing diabetes – among other diseases – and it also contains health-boosting enzymes. Another great thing about camel milk is the fact that it can be consumed by those who are

lactose-intolerant

.

From

Before It’s News

:

“Camel milk has been deemed to hold superfood benefits, and research has shown that this milk contains more nutritional value than other forms of milk On top of the many surprising health benefits, camel milk is also rich in unsaturated fatty acids, and is high in vitamins and minerals. The great news is that those with lactose intolerance will likely be able to enjoy this milk without the symptoms associated with drinking homogenized cow’s milk. In fact, this milk has actually be shown to reduce lactose intolerance.”

Camel milk fights disease

Here are some of the main benefits of drinking camel milk:

Fights diabetes

– Although the exact mechanism isn’t fully understood, camel milk has been proven to reduce insulin dependence in type 2 diabetes patients. It has been theorized that it contains

“insulin-like” substances

that mimic the interaction of insulin within the body.

Benefits for ASD

– Some believe children with autism can benefit from camel’s milk.

Reduces anxiety

– Camel milk contains high levels of the neurotransmitter GABA, which is important for proper brain function and is also believed to relieve anxiety symptoms.

Promotes gut health

– Camel milk provides a powerful

probiotic

effect. Drinking it helps the body produce healthy gut bacteria that fight disease and also help to regulate mood and alleviate the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression.

Fights cancer

– Camel milk has been shown to kill

cancer

cells, but the specific anti-cancer molecule has not yet been isolated. Further research may unlock the secret and lead to an effective natural treatment for cancer, but meanwhile, simply drinking camel’s milk may help in treating and preventing some types of cancer.

Overall benefits of drinking camel milk

Camel milk has been proven effective in fighting and preventing specific diseases, and its overall health-boosting benefits make it a beverage worth considering as part of your diet.

It’s a rich source of protein –

camel milk

contains more than 200 different types of protein, some of which are known to boost the immune system. Drinking camel milk can help in reducing meat intake to obtain the necessary amount of proteins for a healthy diet.

Camel

milk

is believed to be the closest thing to human mother’s milk. It may be a good choice when a milk alternative is needed for infants and toddlers — it’s so nutritious that it can be considered as having therapeutic value, according to researchers.

You should only buy camel milk from a

trusted source

— it’s available online and in most states in can be sold directly from farms to consumers. Make sure you purchase milk that comes from organically-raised camels and take the normal precautions in consuming any raw milk product.

Nomads have depended on the camel for survival for millennia – it turns out they were right all along. Camel milk not only can keep you alive in the wilderness, it can keep you healthy, too.

Prescription painkillers kill far more people than heroin and cocaine

Prescription painkillers kill far more people than heroin and cocaine

http://ift.tt/2dNUPnI

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) A leading pathologist is warning that one prescription painkiller is causing more deaths than cocaine and heroin.

The expert, Prof. Jack Crane – Northern Ireland’s top pathologist – says Tramadol is currently “claiming more lives than any other drug,” and as such ought to be upgraded to the Class A category. Currently, the drug is listed as a Class C medication in the UK; Class C medications are deemed to be the least harmful.

When taken with other medications or mixed with alcohol, Crane said, the combination can be deadly. The drug is taken by thousands of people every day, the UK’s

Daily Mail reported

.

Tramadol is used to treat both moderate and severe pain. Its last reclassification in 2014 made it illegal to use without a prescription.

Others claim that the drug is safe if taken appropriately, but Crane still thinks it should be more tightly regulated. “I don’t think that people realise how potentially risky taking Tramadol is,” he

told ITV News

. “I think it’s because it’s a prescription drug – people assume it’s safe.”

Britain’s deadliest drug

Activists working to get the drug more tightly regulated, say that they believe a rising number of users are trying to get the drug via the black market. Crane says he believes more

people

will die unless there is a concerted effort by police and government agencies to crack down on illegal sales of Tramadol.

His warning comes on the heels of a report calling for the legalization of cannabis in the UK for medicinal use, the

Daily Mail

said. The controversial report, which was written by a cross-section of lawmakers and peers from various parties and interest groups, says that the British government should allow people with chronic illnesses to grow their own cannabis under license.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Drug Policy Reform said it would also like to see companies given permission to import or grow marijuana, as well as having lawmakers cut down legal controls and make it less regulated that most other painkillers.

A

separate report

in

West Briton

also quotes Crane, who called Tramadol the UK’s deadliest drug. The report said that in 2014, 240 deaths in Britain were linked to Tramadol.

Currently in the U.S. there is an opioid epidemic, and it, too, is a killer. But, as

we reported

in September, U.S. healthcare makes it easier for opioid-addicted patients to get more medications at hospitals.

A report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found that 1-in-20 Americans abused

prescription painkillers

at some point in 2015. The agency found that some 119 million Americans aged 12 and older were on prescription psychotherapeutic medications – a term used in the report in reference to “pain relievers, tranquilizers, stimulants, and sedatives” – in 2015. The report noted further that painkillers were, by far, the most prescribed and abused.

Obamacare partly to blame for epidemic?

To produce the report, SAMHSA researchers employed an estimate derived from about 68,000 surveys. According to findings, “All estimates (e.g. percentages and numbers) presented in the report are derived from NSDUH [National Survey on Drug Use and Health] survey data.” SAMHSA also noted that the use of such medications over the past year was “fairly common” in the United States, with 44.5 percent of the population claiming to have used them at some point during 2015.

And while most of those who abused opioids and other psychotherapeutic drugs got them from family and friends, the second-most common method for obtaining them was via a primary care provider – either as a

prescription

or by stealing them from doctor’s offices.

Still others blame Obamacare. Under that law, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services allocates $1.5 billion in Medicare payments as a reward to hospitals based on patient satisfaction surveys. Some questions on survey forms include: “During this hospital stay, how often did the hospital staff do everything they could to help you with your pain?” and, “How often was your pain well controlled?”

So, patient satisfaction surveys, in essence, leave administrators with the choice between costing hospitals reimbursement dollars or fueling the opioid epidemic.

Wearable ‘flexible UV exposure sensor’ helps you reach daily dose of healthy Vitamin D from sunlight

Wearable ‘flexible UV exposure sensor’ helps you reach daily dose of healthy Vitamin D from sunlight

http://ift.tt/2e2ZzB9

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) Tens of millions of people are deficient in vitamin D largely because they don’t get enough natural sunlight every day. But a new wearable device can help with that.

Researchers at the University of Southern California, in noting that the sun is vital for the production of vitamin D, which in turn is necessary for skin and bone health and may even help prevent some cancers, have developed a device that notifies users of their total sun exposure.

Andrea M. Armani, the Fluor Early Career Chair and associate professor, along with Michele E. Lee, a doctoral candidate in the Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering, have designed a wearable 0.5 by 0.5-inch millimeter-sized flexible patch that changes color based on the level of UV exposure. When the sensor turns orange, the wearer has reached the

daily dose of vitamin D

, as recommended by the World Health Organization.

The sensor patch is less than half-a-millimeter thick, and as such is very flexible, making it ideal for people who love to be outdoors, as well as for athletes. What’s more, the patch does not use a power source, unlike apps for the iPhone or Samsung watches.

Studies show some cancer risks may be cut by as much as 50 percent

Also, the sensors created by the Armani Lab continue to function if they get wet, and work while adjusting responses when sunscreen is applied to the skin. The sensors, which are made of a material that Armani and Lee have patented, were constructed using FDA-approved non-toxic polymers for human use and food contact. They can be stored for as long as five weeks.

Armani and Lee published their findings in the journal

ACS Sensors

, USC said in

a press release

. They noted that the sensor addresses unique challenges posed by trying to properly gauge how much sun is enough and how much can be excessive, which could lead to other problems including some cancers.

Each patch is able to adjust for varying geographical and environmental influences, as well as for the biological makeup of the individual user. In the future, the researchers plan to adjust the performance of the sensors so that they can optimize them for various skin types via the use of additional coatings and tailoring the active layer that changes colors.

The overall importance of proper vitamin D intake has been known for decades, as

we have reported

in the past. Besides getting vitamin D from the sun, it is also present in many foods.

As a source of health, vitamin D is associated with improving a number of conditions and ailments, including asthma, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and periodontal disease.

Just a few minutes a day

As for getting enough sun, there are studies that show that proper exposure can cut your risk of getting some cancers

in half

.

Studies conducted recently by Prof. Rachel Neale, of the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane, Australia, show that when people spend more time in the sun there are major health benefits. She found that people who live in regions where there are higher UV levels have a 30 to 40 percent lower chance of being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. In addition, some epidemiology studies found that excess exposure to the

sun

can cut the risk of some cancers by as much as 50 percent.

“We certainly are not hand on heart saying this is definitely true, in these types of epidemiological studies we are always very cautious about saying something is casual, but we do see an association between UV exposure and some cancers,” she said, adding that exposing more skin over a shorter period of time – 3 minutes a day – is enough to soak in the required daily amount of vitamin D.

People are spending thousands on risky cosmetic genital surgeries

People are spending thousands on risky cosmetic genital surgeries

http://ift.tt/2dNWWYX

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) Plastic surgery has become so commonplace that no one bats an eyelid when a woman gets breast implants these days. It’s been more than 50 years since the first breast enlargement surgery using silicone implants took place, and it’s now the second most popular type of cosmetic surgery across the world.

Now, however, men are starting to get in on the act, with a new procedure that enhances the appearance of the testicles gaining in popularity. Commonly referred to as “scrotox”, this involves having Botox injected to the scrotum in order to help ease sweating, fill out wrinkles, and make the area appear larger. The number of men undergoing the procedure has doubled in the past year, with men happily shelling out thousands of dollars in hopes of getting the desired results.

The clinical director of Transform in the UK says that his clinic will not perform the procedure because it’s simply too risky. He said that although it might help with sweating, there is too much loose skin on that part of the body that cannot be shifted by

injections of Botox

. He says the only real solution is surgery to get rid of the excess skin.

Women

are also shelling out top dollar to make some changes below the waist. Labiaplasty, which is a surgery that entails reducing the size of the flaps of skin on either side of the opening of the vagina, has been growing in popularity over the past few years.

While some women are getting this done to ease discomfort, many are doing it for cosmetic reasons. Doctors are particularly concerned about the number of teenagers who are seeking the

procedure

. In response, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recently issued guidance to doctors urging them to reassure their patients that these variations are normal and suggest alternatives to these risky operations that might help with any discomfort. They are also recommending that some of these patients be screened for psychiatric disorders.

Lots of unknowns

The chairwoman of the ACOG’s adolescent health care committee, Dr. Julie Strickland, warns that this procedure has a lot of unknowns. She told the New York Times: “The labia have a lot of nerve endings in them, so there could be diminishment of sexual sensation after surgery, or numbness, or pain, or scarring.”

The procedures have not been proven safe of effective, and there can be a lot of complications. The

NHS reports

that women can experience swelling, bruising and soreness for as long as two weeks afterward, and sitting and using the restroom during recovery can be painful. Tissue scarring, infection and bleeding can sometimes occur, and some women might note reduced sensitivity in the area. Like all operations, there is also the risk of having an allergic reaction to the anesthesia or developing a blood clot.

80 percent rise in young girls undergoing labiaplasty

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 400 girls aged 18 and younger underwent a labiaplasty last year. This is an 80 percent rise over the number of girls who had it done in 2014, and it’s also important to note that this figure only refers to those who had the procedure done by plastic surgeons; some girls are having it done by gynecologists. This is particularly concerning in this age group because the body is often not done developing by the time these young women get the procedure done.

The prevalence of young girls who shave or wax their pubic hair – more than 70 percent, according to one study – could be behind the increasing concern over the appearance of the labia as it’s more visible. The internet is also shouldering some of the blame, with the unrealistic and often airbrushed pictures found online making young girls feel insecure about what are actually normal variations in the size, shape, color and symmetry of this part of the body.

How have we reached the point where

people

are so willing to get botulinum neurotoxin injected into their scrotum or have their labia cut down so their body can fulfill some misguided ideal? These are risky procedures that can carry serious side effects. There are enough

dangers lurking in our food

, air and water that we don’t need to stack the odds against us even further by going under the knife unnecessarily.

When will Congress finally address the autism epidemic in America?

When will Congress finally address the autism epidemic in America?

http://ift.tt/2e3012r

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) The Autism Action Network has called on its supporters to make autism an issue for the current election cycle, by contacting their members of Congress and asking them to answer the following question: “What have you done since the last election in your capacity as a member of Congress to help find the causes of autism; develop effective prevention and treatment; improve educational outcomes; and improve the lives of people with autism. Please be specific.”

On November 8, every single seat in the House of Representatives is up for election, along with 34 Senate seats.

As rates keep rising, where is Washington?

Autism is a neurological disorder characterized by difficulty with social interaction and communication, along with repetitive or restricted behaviors. Although it has historically been considered a primarily genetic condition, evidence continues to emerge linking it to a variety of environmental factors.

One of the strongest lines of evidence for an environmental trigger is the fact that rates of autism keep rising. According to a 2014 study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), US autism rates increased by almost 30 percent just between 2008 and 2010, leaping from a rate of one in 88 (among 8-year-olds) to one in 68. Experts mostly agree that the jump is too large to be explained solely by improved screening and diagnosis. And while some of the increase can be explained by people having children later in life, that does not fully explain the dramatic increase, either.

The 2014 study spurred vocal calls for the government to address a condition that is now so prevalent that nearly every elementary school class has at least one autistic student.

“This is a loud message to people in Washington that we need leadership here,” said Liz Feld, president of Autism Speaks. “A national strategy that addresses all the needs of the autism community across the lifespan is what is needed now more than ever.”

Evidence of environmental causes mounts

Recent research has uncovered a number of potential environmental triggers for autism. A 2013 study by researchers from Arizona State University suggested that

heavy metal exposure

might be one such trigger. The researchers found that autistic children had a significantly higher body burden of heavy metals than non-autistic children. Notably, children with more severe symptoms also had

higher heavy metal levels

than autistic children with less severe symptoms. In fact, as much as 47 percent of the variation in autism severity could be explained by levels of heavy metals, especially mercury and cadmium.

Another possibility being explored by current research is that disruption to the natural community of microbes living within the human body – the microbiome – might contribute to the neurological changes that produce

autism

. Studies have confirmed that autistic children have a different microbiome composition than non-autistic children, while microbiome-disrupting procedures including antibiotics and cesarean sections, have also been shown to influence autism risk and symptoms.

Of course, the possibility that has sparked the most controversy is that vaccines might be to blame for some cases of autism. The case for a

vaccine injury

trigger was strengthened in 2014, when senior CDC scientist William Thompson admitted that he and fellow researchers had manipulated the data from one of their studies to conceal a finding that the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine was linked to higher autism rates in black boys.

Catherine J Frompovich, author of

Vaccination Voodoo

, added her voice on

Natural Blaze

in support of the Autism Action Network call to action, and also suggested a call to presidential candidates asking, “What will you do, if elected into office, to investigate and to stop the fraud and collusion regarding vaccine research, plus the dissemination of fraudulent vaccine science and data by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration?”

Media cover-up as New York’s nuclear plant leaks into the Hudson River

Media cover-up as New York’s nuclear plant leaks into the Hudson River

http://ift.tt/2dNY6DG

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) Environmentalists are calling New York’s leaking nuclear plant “Chernobyl on the Hudson” and rightly so, as the aging plant has been plagued with welding problems. The plant is leaking a drop of contaminated water every five seconds, shockingly including 600 gallons of petroleum, some of which has even reached the discharge canal, according to Governor Andrew Cuomo, who toured the area by boat on October 1st.

Will Cuomo end up severely disabled like the U.S. sailors who came close to Japan’s leaking nuclear plant Fukushima?

Indian Point’s dysfunctional nuclear power plant

is only a couple dozen miles north of New York City’s boundary, and just 50 miles from densely populated areas. New York State Environmental Commissioner Basil Seggos suggested that the booms placed in that discharge canal meant to absorb the petroleum “may not have been effective.” He went on to say that one of the booms has actually been ripped off, so if oil got into the water at any rate, it would have entered the canal. Nuclear control room operators actually removed the unit’s number 2 reactor so that

weld repairs

could be made on some piping, as well as for electrical testing.

Back on May 5th, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said that a previous Indian Point nuclear plant accident “analysis was flawed.” The plant was totally shut down in June citing bolt failure. Last spring, officials were making up some of the

hokiest excuses ever

for complications. In March, they even went so far as to blame bird poop as a suspected cause for a shutdown. Before that, in February, there were calls for a federal investigation into radioactive

leaks

coming from the plant. The plant is almost 50 years old, and there have been widespread calls for shutting the whole operation down, including repeated requests from Governor Cuomo himself.

Another Fukushima? Unprecedented degradation of bolts and excessive groundwater contamination continue, with zero mass media coverage

Thanks to the American mass media, most Americans know absolutely

nothing

about

nuclear

catastrophes happening in Japan or the United States. Nothing to see here! If the news isn’t about Trump talking smack or Kim Kardashian missing some jewelry, it doesn’t get published. Meanwhile, in the real world, the

crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility in Japan

leaks massive amounts of radiation into the Pacific ocean, and that cancer-causing water has already reached the shores of California.

Japanese officials are on the record saying that people shouldn’t worry and should just continue smiling and drinking alcohol as a way to get through it all. In New York, Governor Cuomo warns everyone about

“unprecedented degradation of Indian Point Unit 2”

and “groundwater contamination.” He warns that the repeated shutdowns are “yet another sign that the aging and wearing away of important components at the facility are having a direct and unacceptable impact on safety, and is further proof that the plant is not a reliable generation resource.”

Despite major objections from residents, lawmakers and environmental groups, the nuclear power company spent $120 million for inspections and upgrades to equipment, including the analysis of over 200 bolts. In spite of this, several systems are still in dire need of work, and bolts have been reported “missing” on the reactor’s inner lining.

Still, the

media

covers the whole catastrophe up, claiming that the plant is “safer than ever.” Has it ever been safe to begin with? If this is what they call safe, it would be horrifying to hear news they would consider dangerous. Will this be like the EPA covered-up lead-in-the-water crisis from Flint, Michigan, where children had to suffer irreparable brain damage before anyone even heard there was a problem? In just the last decade,

Indian Point

has had nine incidents, including leaks from spent fuel pools and transformer fires. Is the plant so defective that it totally breaks down now when a bird poops on it? What is wrong with our country that we have to live like this?

Young women have the highest risk of mental health issues

Young women have the highest risk of mental health issues

http://ift.tt/2e2ZwoW

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) Data that was recently released by NHS Digital shows that young women have the highest risk of mental health problems in England. According to the information, one out of every five women reported having a mental disorder like depression or anxiety in 2014; only one out of every eight men said the same. Moreover, young women had high rates of post-traumatic stress, bipolar disorders and incidents of self-harm. Overall, one out of every six British adults has a common mental disorder.

The study showed that the gender gap in mental illness was the widest in young people. This gap had widened since the first survey in 1993, when 19 percent of women and 8 percent of men aged 16 to 24 reported symptoms of a common mental disorder. In 2014, 26 percent of women and just 9 percent of men reported these issues, which means women in this age bracket were three times more likely to have

symptoms of depression

and anxiety.

A troubling 26 percent of young women say they have self-harmed, while 13 percent have post-traumatic stress disorder. Just 10 and 4 percent of men fall into the same categories respectively.

The information was taken from the National Study of Health and Wellbeing, which involved 7,500 people and is carried out every seven years. According to the CDC, similar trends are also seen in the U.S. population when it comes to gender and mental health.

Medication most common treatment

A rise in those seeking mental health treatment has also been noted. While just one in four people turned to experts for help in 2007, one in three were doing so in 2014. The most common treatment for all conditions was medication, with 10 percent of those surveyed turning to pills to help them cope.

This is an extremely troubling trend. As the proportion of the population

taking antidepressant

s rises, society at large is poised to suffer. The heightened suicide risk caused by these pills can devastate families, and these medications have been connected to the

perpetrators of a number of high-profile school shootings

and other mass killings in recent years. The people going this route are also unlikely to note significant improvement, as a recent study showed that 13 of the 14 most commonly prescribed antidepressants

worked no better than a placebo

.

Social media to blame?

Something else that has arisen during this time period is the use of social media. While social media is sometimes touted as helping people feel more connected and less isolated, it can also have the opposite effect. Many people try to paint a misleadingly “perfect” picture of their lives on social media, causing others to fret about not measuring up. There is also tremendous pressure for girls in particular to look flawless in online photos, and there can also be a lot of mean-spirited talk that can shatter those already in fragile emotional states.

The head of information at Mind, a UK

mental health

charity, Stephen Buckley, said of social media: “Its instantaneous and anonymous nature means it’s easy for people to make hasty and sometimes ill-advised comments that can negatively affect other people’s mental health.”

The findings of the NHS study are in keeping with a

2013 analysis

of 12 broad epidemiological mental illness studies out of Oxford University, which found that women had as much as a 75 percent higher likelihood of suffering anxiety disorders and depression than men. This was true even after taking into account the fact that

women

are more likely than men to seek help for mental illness.

The majority of Brits are turning to medication to deal with mental health issues, possibly due to the marketing efforts of Big Pharma. Many women who are suffering from

depression

or anxiety don’t realize that they have much safer options than antidepressants.

Some find that exercise takes the edge off as it releases endorphins that lift their spirits, with yoga being particularly beneficial. Others turn to cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy such as coloring or painting, meditation, and spending time outdoors

breathing clean air

and observing natural beauty. Pharmaceutical companies might have you believe that their solutions are the only ones, but countless people – men and women alike – are noting benefits from natural treatments without any of the downright scary

side effects of SSRIs

, like opening fire on a crowd or taking their own lives.

10 simple tips to get better sleep

10 simple tips to get better sleep

http://ift.tt/2dNWGsY

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) Most of us know that getting a good night’s rest is important for our overall well-being. It is one of the key factors of a healthy lifestyle. Nonetheless, too few of us make those seven to eight hours between the sheets a priority.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 50 to 70 million U.S. adults do not get enough quality sleep, and the number of people suffering from a sleeping disorder is rising by the day.

If falling asleep or feeling fully rested in the morning sounds like an impossible dream to you, these ten helpful tips and tricks may be just the thing you need.

1. Turn off nightlights

Many people like having a muted light in their bedroom to help them fall asleep or make it easier to find the bathroom in the middle of the night. However, sleeping with even a little bit of light has been shown to decrease melatonin secretion, which is a hormone that makes you sleepy.

2. Create a sleeping pattern

Your body loves a set rhythm or routine. Therefore, having a regular sleeping pattern is an excellent way to make sure your body gets plenty of quality sleeping time. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. Also, make sure to get at least 7 hours of undisturbed sleep.

3. Take a nap

While many people don’t find it hard to maintain a sleeping pattern during the week, most of us like to sleep in or sleep late on the weekend. Research, however, has shown that even disrupting your

sleeping

pattern for two days can make you feel tired. Therefore, it is better to maintain your normal sleeping rhythm during the weekend and take a small afternoon nap if you feel sleepy.

4. Get moving

Regular exercise helps to relieve stress and relaxes muscles to improve sleep. Note that any form of exercise should be done at least three to four hours before hitting the sack. Your body needs time to relax and unwind after the metabolic high that physical activity creates.

5. No phones before bed

Since we’ve entered the era of technology, many of us don’t seem to be able to disconnect from a screen when they go to sleep. Whether it is the screen of your mobile phone, laptop, or TV, these appliances will keep you awake much longer no matter how tired you are. Best is to turn off all devices 30 minutes before bedtime.

6. Sleep-assist apps

While you shouldn’t check Facebook or your emails in bed, some applications on your phone can actually help you to get a better night’s rest. Some of these apps lull you to sleep through calming music or sounds.

And why not

diffuse relaxing essential oils

while listening to these sounds to enhance the relaxing effects and soothe yourself to sleep ?

7. Avoid carb-rich food and caffeine

While eating carbohydrates can make you feel tired and sleepy, research has shown that eating significant amounts of carbs before sleep makes you prone to a restless

sleep

or intermittent waking. Also, coffee or other caffeine-rich foods or drinks can negatively disrupt your sleeping time.

8. Warm milk and honey

A combination of warm milk with a spoonful of honey has been the go-to-sleep remedy for centuries. While it may seem like just another natural home remedy, there may be a method to the madness. According to some scientific evidence, the combination of the warmth of the milk and the insulin spike from the honey will make you sleepy and calm.

9. Take a bath before bedtime

A hot bath ten to twenty minutes before bed can relax the body and mind. You can make it even better by adding sleep- and relaxation-inducing essential oils such as lavender, chamomile, frankincense, marjoram, sage, and valerian.

10. Wake up with the sun

As mentioned above, light reduces melatonin levels which wake you up. Enjoying your morning coffee or tea with natural sunlight is the best wake-up call you can have after a good night’s rest.

CDC: Sharp uptick in cases of mysterious polio-like illness paralyzing children

CDC: Sharp uptick in cases of mysterious polio-like illness paralyzing children

http://ift.tt/2e30TEo

&;

&13;
(NaturalNews) A severe uptick in the incidence of a polio-like illness is worrying doctors and public health officials across the U.S. The CDC, concerned about a

potential outbreak

, has issued a public health warning.

In the summer of 2014, health authorities noticed a disturbing trend of heavily vaccinated children coming down with something that resembled polio. Over a hundred hospitalized patients have yet to recover. In some cases, a mysterious, paralytic condition of the face and limbs accompanied the sickness. The illness is called transverse myelitis, but it includes many sub-types producing various effects. One of the sub-types that have become most worrisome is acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. (Myelitis stands for inflammation of the spinal cord.) The CDC reports that this mysterious illness likely stems from enteroviruses, just as polio does.

Speaking with

The Atlantic

, Keith Van Haren, a child neurologist at Stanford University School of Medicine, said, “It actually looks just like polio, but that term really freaks out the public-health people.”

Weakened immune systems and damaged nervous systems give enteroviruses an easy way in

When an infected child’s body naturally responds with a fever, and the fever is weak and ineffective at destroying the virus, the sickness may take hold and progress into other areas of the body. In an age of overall weakened immunity and chemically damaged nervous systems, something as routine as an enterovirus can find a way to inflame the neurological system, manifesting as AFM.

As the infection takes hold of the weakened immune system, it does damage to the fatty substance that protects the nerve cells. This inflammation along the width of the spinal column can lead to paralysis. As the child’s body weakens, they begin to struggle with movement of their limbs, body and face, especially their tongue and eyes. It’s a situation that is beginning to look a lot like polio.

Medical professionals today don’t understand and cannot fully measure the

many facets of the immune system

. Where a fever is productive in one case, it may not be in another case, due to underlying deficiencies in the child’s body or due to drugs that are suppressing the body’s ability to defend itself.

Vaccine methodology apparently not working

We’ve heard the story repeated time and time again, that thanks to vaccines, poliomyelitis (polio) has been eradicated from the U.S. However,

pre-exposure to pathogens

alone does not take into account the many facets of the immune system that work together to keep the body strong in the face of all pathogens.

When the dead polio virus Salk vaccine was first introduced, the medical categorization of

polio

and other diseases changed as well. Before the vaccine, cases of aseptic meningitis and coxsackie virus were classified as polio too. After the vaccine was introduced, the data for all these infections was separated, artificially lowering polio numbers and giving the false impression that the vaccine was lowering polio

cases

.

In addition, widespread use of the insecticide DDT was popular at the height of the polio hysteria, poisoning central nervous systems and weakening immune systems, allowing benign viral infections to become full blown nervous system disorders that resemble what we call polio cases.

According to the hard data, death due to polio infections steadily declined throughout the 1900s, well before the dead virus and live virus vaccines were introduced. By the time the live virus vaccine was introduced, the CDC stated that most remaining cases of polio were due to the vaccines. The live virus remains in the throat for one to two weeks and in the feces for up to two months, permitting viral shedding that can transmit illness to others.

In the past five years, there have been 13,641 reports of adverse events following the use of the oral polio vaccine, leading to over 6,000

ER

visits, further complications and 540 unnecessary deaths.

Today’s dependence on increasing numbers of vaccine chemicals and pre-exposure to an ever increasing number of pathogens is obviously not working. It’s the abandonment of sunlight, minerals in soils and nutrient/antioxidant consumption from food and plants that is causing generally weakened immunity in the population. Through lowered breast feeding rates, over-chemicalization of the food supply and increasing environmental toxins in the water supply, humans are creating a situation where benign viruses are becoming a grave threat to entire populations, manifesting yet again as neurological disorders.

Iran Scandal Deepens: US Signed Secret Deal Lifting Sanctions THE SAME DAY Hostages Released

&;

&13;
&13;

5251595

The Obama administration secretly helped lift UN sanctions on two Iranian banks, on the exact same day four American hostages were released, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The sanctions revelation, coupled with a now revealed 400 million dollar payment to Iran that day, further contradict the original administration narrative that credited “strong American diplomacy.” The sanctions were not supposed to be lifted until 2023, and were in place for the banks’ role in supporting Iran’s ballistic missile system.

“By agreeing to remove U.N. and EU sanctions eight years early on Iran’s main missile financing bank, the administration effectively greenlighted their nuclear warhead-capable ballistic missile program,” Foundation for Defense of Democracies head Mark Dubowtiz told TheWSJ.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury called one of the banks the administration lifted sanctions on “the financial linchpin of Iran’s missile procurement network,” in 2007.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

Previous reports confirmed the U.S. wouldn’t let a plane carrying $400 million take off for Iran until three U.S. prisoners departed Iran in January. The mechanics of the exchange all but confirm accusations that the $400 million in cash was a ransom payment. Saeed Abedini, a former Iranian hostage said, Iranian intelligence officials told him his plane could not take off until the movements of a second plane were confirmed. The second plane is like the U.S. cargo plane carrying $400 million in cash.

After the details of the exchange came to light the U.S. Department of State admitted to reporters they used the money as “leverage.”

“The timing of this, despite administration protests to the contrary, suggests that this was a ransom payment,” Jonathan Schanzer, an expert on terrorism finance and the vice president of research at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, previously told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “And even if this was not what the administration intended, it certainly looks that way to the Iranians.”
Before the revelations the administration crowed about how imperative the administration’s Iran deal made the hostage agreement possible. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry praised “the relationships forged and the diplomatic channels unlocked over the course of the nuclear talks,” the day after the hostage announcement.

Obama claims he announced the payment concurrent with the hostage announcement, and declared on August 4, “The United States does not pay ransom and does not negotiate ransoms.”

Third World Invasion to Destroy English

&;

The ongoing Third World invasion of Britain will cause the “th” sound to vanish completely from the English language in London by the year 2066, linguistic experts have claimed.

There are so many Third Worlders in Britain’s capital who struggle to pronounce interdental consonants—the technical term for the “th” sound—that it will be replaced by a “f,” “d,” or “v” sound.

london-street

According to Dr. Dominic Watt, a sociolinguistics expert from the University of York, because London is the “linguistically most influential city in the English-speaking world, we can expect to see significant changes between now and the middle of the century.”

“The major changes in the way we speak over the next 50 years will involve a simplification of the sound structure of words; they’ll become shorter,” he said.

The destruction of traditional English was started with the mass Third World invasion of east London, which effectively exterminated the famous “cockney” English dialect.

East London is now majority nonwhite, and the cockney people—white Britons born within earshot of the bells of St Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside—have long since been ethnically cleansed out of the area.

As a result, what is now officially called “Multicultural London English,” or MLE, is now the dominant language in the area, described as being “heavily influenced by Caribbean, West African, and Asian Communities.”

Now, the next step in the ethnic cleansing of white people from London is to take place, as exemplified by the looming disappearance of the “th” sound, with a report in the Telegraph announcing that “within the next few decades immigration will have fundamentally altered the [English] language.”

The “th” sound is likely to change to be replaced an “f”, “d”, or “v” meaning “mother” will be pronounced “muvver” and “thick” will be voiced as “fick.”

Other changes likely to become widespread by 2066 include a habit known as “yod dropping” in which the “u” sound is replaced with an “oo”. It means that “duke” becomes “dook”, “news” is pronounced “nooze” and “beauty” changes to “booty.”

Consonant “smushing” is also predicted where two sounds collapse together completely so that “wed” and “red” will soon be indistinguishable.

Likewise the “l” at the end of words will be dropped so that the words “Paul,” “paw” and “pool” all sound the same. Similarly, “text” will lose the final “t” to become “tex.”

The Telegraph reported that “visitors expecting to hear the Queen’s English spoken on the streets of London in 50 years may need to ‘fink’ again.”

Entrepreneur Bradley Charvet – who is opening the first fellatio café in Switzerland later this year – has lifted the lid on his plans to open a erotic cyborg cafe in Britain.

Sex-mad customers will choose their desired robot and coffee from an iPad before they enjoy a steamy 15-minute sex session for as little as £60.

And the daring entrepreneur has revealed how erotic cyborgs will improve the sex service and put his cafe ahead of the game.

&13;

Bradley told Daily Star Online: “Sex robot will always be pleasing and could even become better at technique because they would be programmable to a person’s need.

“They will improve the sex service.

“It’s totally normal to see a new way of using robots and others sex toys to have pleasure.”

Protests over police shooting near San Diego turn violent…

EL CAJON (CNS) – Protests of the fatal police shooting of a Ugandan emigre at an El Cajon strip mall turned violent Thursday night, prompting the arrests of two men and the use of pepper balls by officers to disperse the crowd of about 50 to 75.

The third night of demonstrations over the death of 38-year-old Alfred Olango, which protesters maintain was unwarranted and racially motivated, started heating up around 8 p.m. in the area of North Mollison Avenue and Broadway where police said the crowd occupied the intersection.

The protesters stopped vehicles, broke car windows and knocked a motorcyclist off his motorcycle, according to Lt. Rob Ransweiler of the El Cajon Police Department.

The ECPD received numerous 911 calls about the disturbance in the intersection and a group of officers from the multi-agency composite platoon moved into the area, he said. An unlawful assembly was declared by law enforcement at the scene and notice was given to the protesters to disperse.

The protesters began throwing glass bottles at the police and after the group refused to disperse pepper balls were deployed, Ransweiler said.

Two men from El Cajon, ages 19 and 28, were taken into custody on suspicion of participating in the unlawful assembly but their names were not released.

There were no injuries reported, Ransweiler said.

Protests began shortly after 38-year-old Uganda native Alfred Olango was mortally wounded during a confrontation with officers outside a strip mall restaurant near the intersection of Interstate 8 and state Route 67 Tuesday afternoon. Demonstrators contend that an officer was unduly quick to open fire and that the decision was at least in part racially motivated.
   
“These senseless killings have to stop — not just in El Cajon but in the entire country,” community activist Estela De Los Rios said.

One witness told reporters Olango had his hands raised when shots rang out, and another indicated he may have suffered a seizure. However, police said Olango was uncooperative, had repeatedly refused to remove his hand from his pocket, assumed “what appeared to be a shooting stance,” and pointed an object that turned out to be an electronic smoking device at one of the officers.
   
On Wednesday afternoon, demonstrators headed to where the deadly encounter played out less than 24 hours earlier, a commercial district a few blocks north of El Cajon Valley High School. A rally continued into the evening and protesters at times blocked streets and faced off with rows of officers in riot gear. The disruptions prompted the temporary closure of nearby Parkway Plaza mall.
   
El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells said during a late afternoon briefing that he was “completely fine” with peaceful protests is concerned about the potential for the protests to turn destructive.
   
“I see what’s happening all over the country,” Wells said. “Of course I’m worried. … I don’t expect anything bad to happen, but I certainly don’t want to be caught unaware.”
   
A still image lifted from witness video that showed a crouching man holding something at face level as two officers apparently trained weapons on him was released hours after the shooting. Protesters criticized police for releasing one photo, instead of the entire video.
   
Wells said he had seen the full video and was deeply affected by it but was holding off on any judgments.
   
“I saw a man who was distraught, a man who was acting in ways that looked like he was in great pain,” Wells said. “And I saw him get gunned down and killed, and it broke my heart.”

Each of the officers, who had more than 20 years of law enforcement experience, were placed on administrative leave, per protocol. Police have promised a thorough and transparent multi-agency investigation. Protesters called for a federal investigation.
   
Critics have questioned why personnel with special training to deal with the mentally ill were not dispatched after police received a report that Olango was behaving erratically and walking in traffic. A distraught woman who identified herself as Olango’s sister could be heard just after he was shot asking why officers shot her brother after she called for help and told police he was troubled.
   
Police later said a Psychiatric Emergency Response Team clinician was on another call at the time.
   
Christopher Rice-Wilson of Alliance San Diego attributed what befell Olango to “three strikes” — being black, being mentally ill and not following orders.
   
“Black lives matter,” Rice-Wilson said. “And if a black life doesn’t matter, then no life matters.”
   
Authorities disputed claims that bystanders’ cellphones were taken at the scene. Only one was voluntarily turned over.
   
According to friends, Olango was born in Kampala, Uganda, as one of nine children. His mother and siblings emigrated to New York as refugees in 1991, apparently because his father — who worked for the late Ugandan President Idi Amin — made threats of violence against them.
   
The family eventually moved to Southern California, and Olango attended San Diego High School for a time before dropping out, though he later earned a GED. According to his Facebook page, he attended San Diego Mesa College and worked at a Hooters restaurant.

Ancient Roman Coins Found in Japan

&;

Roman coins dating from the reign of Constantine the great (272 A.D.–337 A.D) have been found in the ruins of a Japanese castle dating from around 1300—more than 20 years before European explorers first reached that island nation.

The coins were found in the ruins of Katsuren Castle, which is located near Uruma, Okinawa, the southernmost Japanese islands.

excavation

According to a report in the Japan Times, it is the first time such ancient European artifacts have been discovered in Japan.

The board of education in the city of Uruma said that the four copper coins would appear to have been acquired during Okinawa’s trade with China and Southeast Asia.

The find is a “precious historical material suggesting a link between Okinawa and the Western world,” the board of education said.

Each coin measures 1.6 to 2 cm. in diameter. The designs and patterns on both sides are unclear due to abrasion. X-ray analysis, however, revealed that the coins showed an image of Constantine I and a soldier holding a spear.

Other relics unearthed from the site include a coin from the 17th century Ottoman Empire, as well as five other round metallic items that also appear to be coins.

“It is a strange and interesting find. We don’t think that there is a direct link between the Roman empire and Katsuren castle, but the discovery confirms how this region had trade relations with the rest of Asia,” a spokesperson from the board of education said.

Japanese archaeologist Hiroyuki Miyagi told media that when he had heard that Roman and Ottoman coins had been unearthed from the ruins, he initially thought it was a hoax, or that replicas that had been dropped there by tourists or pranksters.

Now, however, he believes that the coins ended up in Japan after passing through different trade routes that linked the West to Asia.

France: ‘The Jungle’ Migrant Camp

French President François Hollande has vowed “definitively, entirely and rapidly” to dismantle “The Jungle,” a squalid migrant camp in the northern port town of Calais, by the end of this year.

Hollande made the announcement during a September 26 visit to Calais — but not to the camp itself — amid growing unease over France’s escalating migrant crisis, which has become a central issue in the country’s presidential campaign.

The French government plans to relocate the migrants at the camp to so-called reception centers in other parts of the country. But it remains unclear how the government will prevent migrants from returning to Calais.

Sceptics say the plan to demolish “The Jungle” is a publicity stunt that will temporarily displace the migrants but will not resolve the underlying problem — that French officials refuse either to deport illegal migrants or else to secure the country’s borders to prevent illegal migrants from entering France in the first place.

The decision to demolish the camp came just days after construction work began on a wall in Calais, a major transport hub on the edge of the English Channel, to prevent migrants at the camp from stowing away on cars, trucks, ferries and trains bound for Britain.

In recent months, peoplesmugglers armed with knives, bats and tire irons have forced truck drivers to stop so that migrants can board their vehicles. The Deputy Mayor of Calais, Philippe Mignonet, has described the main route to the port as a “no-go area” between midnight and 6am.

“The Jungle” — the name “jungle” comes from “dzhangal,” the Pashto word for forest — now houses around 10,000 migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East who are trying to reach Britain. Migrants at the camp are from Sudan (45%), Afghanistan (30%), Pakistan (7%), Eritrea (6%) and Syria (1%), according to aid agencies. The migrants at the camp are mostly young men and boys, including some 800 unaccompanied minors, who are seeking jobs in Britain’s underground economy.

Migrants have been gathering in Calais in large numbers ever since the Channel Tunnel linking France and Britain opened in May 1994, and the Schengen Agreement, which abolished border controls between France and most of its neighbors (but not the UK), entered into force in March 1995.

In 1999, the French government asked the Red Cross to build a migrant “reception center” in Sangatte to accommodate a growing number of migrants on the streets of Calais and surrounding areas. The Sangatte camp, which was housed in a giant warehouse situated about a half mile from the entrance to the Channel Tunnel, had a capacity of 600 people.

Far from resolving the migrant problem in Calais, the Sangatte facility served as a magnet, quickly drawing thousands more people to the area. Within months, some 2,000 migrants were living in the camp in increasingly cramped conditions. Many of those staying at Sangatte tried to jump onto slow-moving trains at the entrance to the Channel Tunnel, or hide inside trucks crossing to Britain on ferries.

At the time, French authorities reported a massive increase in the number of arrests in or around the Channel Tunnel. In 1999, 8,000 people were arrested in Calais for immigration offenses. By 2001, that number had jumped ten-fold to 80,000 arrests. Eurotunnel, the company that manages and operates the Channel Tunnel, said that in 2001 alone, 54,000 people had “attacked” the terminal in Calais and 5,000 had gotten through. Many of those were living in Sangatte.

The Sangatte camp was closed in late 2002, after a series of riots between Afghan and Kurdish migrants. In all, some 67,000 migrants stayed at the facility during its three years in operation.

In February 2003, France and Britain signed the Treaty of Le Touquet, which allows for so-called juxtaposed controls, meaning that travelers between the two countries now clear immigration in the country of departure rather than upon arrival. In effect, the treaty pushed parts of the British border to France. By doing so, it exacerbated the migration bottleneck in Calais.

As part of the agreement to close Sangatte, Britain took in 1,200 migrants. Those who remained in France sheltered in at least a dozen different squats both inside and on the outskirts of Calais. These camps — Africa House, Fort Galloo, Leader Price/Sudanese Jungle or Tioxide Jungle — have been repeatedly raided or bulldozed by French police, only for other squats to crop up elsewhere.

Many of the migrants housed at Sangatte moved a few kilometers east to a disused industrial zone called The Dunes. Situated just steps from the Port of Calais, the area would become known as “The Jungle.” Over the years, French authorities have repeatedly tried to demolish all or parts of the camp, only for it to reemerge time and time again, and always with more migrants.

On September 22, 2009, French police bulldozed “The Jungle” and rounded up hundreds of migrants hoping to stow away on trucks headed for Britain. A day later, Calais Mayor Natacha Bouchart said she had “spotted between fifteen and twenty new squats” nearby. She also reported that Afghan migrants were establishing makeshift camps at the Hoverport, a disused collection of buildings which closed in 2005 after the last hovercraft sailed from Dover to Calais.

September 12, 2014. Police in Calais warned that migrants were becoming increasingly violent in their quest to reach Britain. Gilles Debove, the Calais area delegate for the French police union, said tear gas was being used to stop “mass onslaughts” on vehicles about to cross the Channel:

“The other day, two to three hundred migrants tried to get into a lorry park and we fired tear gas to scatter them because there are too few of us to control situations like this any other way. We’re also facing an increase in crimes by migrants who mug people, steal mobile phones and carry out sexual assaults.”

September 10, 2015. French media reported that police were searching for an Islamic State jihadi who was hiding in “The Jungle” in the hope of reaching Britain to launch an attack there.

November 11, 2015. More than 250 French riot police were deployed to “The Jungle” after weeks of unrest. Local government official Fabienne Buccio said the rise in violence was due to the migrants’ frustration at being prevented from reaching Britain.

January 19, 2016. French authorities leveled one-third of “The Jungle” to create a 100-meter “buffer zone” between the camp and an adjacent highway that leads to the ferry port.

February 7, 2016. The migrant crisis spread to other parts of France due to an increased police presence in Calais. Migrant camps sprouted up in the nearby ports of Dunkirk, Le Havre, Dieppe and Belgium’s Zeebrugge, as migrants seek new ways to cross the English Channel to Britain.

February 29, 2016. After a court in Lille approved a plan by the French government to evict 1,000 migrants from “The Jungle,” demolition teams began dismantling the southern part of the camp. The government tried to relocate the migrants to official accommodation inside converted shipping containers in the northern part of the camp. But most refused the offer, fearing they would be forced to claim asylum in France. “Going to Britain is what people here want,” Afghan migrant Hayat Sirat said. “So destroying part of the jungle is not the solution.”

March 7, 2016. Migrants evicted from “The Jungle” moved to a new camp in Grande-Synthe near the northern port of Dunkirk, just up the coast from Calais. Critics said the new camp risks becoming a “new Sangatte,” referring to the Red Cross center in Calais that was closed in 2002.

May 31, 2016. Migrants evicted from Calais moved to Paris and established a massive squatter camp at the Jardins d’Eole, a public park near the Gare du Nord station, from where high-speed Eurostar trains travel to and arrive from London. The area, which is so dangerous that the government has classified it as a no-go zone (Zone de sécurité prioritaires, ZSP), has become a magnet for human traffickers who charge migrants thousands of euros for fake travel documents, for passage to London.

August 11, 2016. In an interview with Le Figaro, a French counter-terrorism officer warned that Islamic State jihadis were hiding in “The Jungle.” He said: “What is happening in The Jungle is truly mind boggling. Our officers are rarely able to penetrate the heart of the camp. It is impossible to know if a jihadi from Belgium, for example, is hiding in the camp. This camp is a blind spot for national security.”

September 5, 2016. Hundreds of French truck drivers, businessmen and farmers blocked off the main route in and out of Calais, in an attempt to pressure the French government to close The Jungle. The blockage brought to a standstill the route used by trucks from all over Europe to reach Calais and Britain.

September 12. A document leaked to Le Figaro revealed the government’s plan, dated September 1, to relocate 12,000 migrants from Calais to other parts of France. The migrants would be relocated to around 60 so-called Reception and Orientation Centers (centres d’accueil et d’orientation, CAO), each with a capacity of between 100 and 300 migrants.

September 13, 2016. The President of the Alpes-Maritimes region, Eric Ciotti, criticized the government’s “irresponsible” plan to relocate migrants in Calais to other parts of France. He said the plan would “proliferate a multitude of small Calais, genuine areas of lawlessness that exacerbate lasting tensions throughout the country.” He added:

“This plan reflects the resignation of the government in the face of massive illegal immigration. It weakens national cohesion under a false pretext of humanity which hides a dangerous ideology that denies any distinction between foreigners who seek asylum, who France should decently receive, and those who are economic migrants, whom we can no longer tolerate, and who should be returned to their countries of origin.

“The only solution is to deport, without delay, all illegal immigrants who do not intend to remain on our territory, and to place asylum seekers in centers dedicated to the study of their cases.”

September 14, 2016. The President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Laurent Wauquiez, expressed anger at the government’s “diktat” to relocate 1,800 migrants from Calais to his region. He said: “This is madness and it is not a matter of solidarity. The problem of Calais is not solved by multiplying Calais throughout France. We expect the government to solve the problem of Calais, not move it to other parts of the country.”

September 16, 2016. Steeve Briois, the Mayor of Hénin-Beaumont and Vice President of the National Front criticized the government’s plan to relocate migrants from “The Jungle” to the rest of the country. He said:

“This crazy policy would consequently multiply mini-Calais on the entire national territory, without consulting the people and local elected officials. This forced policy of the Socialist government is simply unacceptable; it seriously threatens public order and the safety of our citizens.”

September 20, 2016. Construction work began on a wall to prevent migrants at the camp from stowing away on cars, trucks, ferries and trains bound for Britain. Dubbed “The Great Wall of Calais,” the concrete barrier — one kilometer (half a mile) long and four meters (13 feet) high on both sides of the two-lane highway approaching the harbor — will pass within a few hundred meters of “The Jungle.”

September 21, 2016. A whistleblower reported that volunteer aid workers at “The Jungle” were forging sexual relationships with migrants, including children. “I have heard of volunteers having sex with multiple partners in one day, only to carry on in the same vein the following day,” he wrote. “And I know also, that I’m only hearing a small part of a wider scale of abuse.” He added that the majority of cases in question involved female volunteers and male migrants. “Female volunteers having sex enforces the view (that many have) that volunteers are here for sex,” he wrote.

September 28. Calais Mayor Natacha Bouchart expressed skepticism about President Hollande’s pledge to close “The Jungle.” In an interview with Europe 1, she said: “This dismantling will be very complicated. I am skeptical about the commitment of François Hollande that there will be no migrant camp in the territory of Calais. I do not know how he will do it.”

Thursday at a rally in New Hampshire, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump took a shot at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, by saying the “deal he made with Hillary was not the right thing” and that Sanders “sold out to the devil” by supporting his former opponent Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump said, “Look at how many people are here and look at what happened recently. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had very few people at their rally yesterday and that’s because they don’t like Hillary, and Bernie sold out to the devil. You know, Bernie, if Bernie had made the deal and just done something where maybe he did nothing and just went away, he would have been a legendary character or legendary political figure.”

“But the deal he made with Hillary was not the right thing and it was not representative of what he should have done to people,” he continued. “We’ll have a lot of Bernie’s people supporting us, especially because of my views on trade. We are going to have a lot of Bernie people. He should’ve never made the deal. I bet you he wishes that he did not make that deal. That was not the right deal. The people of New Hampshire and everywhere else, don’t care about Bernie anymore because they are looking into the future and the future is going to be something special.”

On Wednesday, Tim Tebow, outfielder in the New York Mets organization, knocked the first pitch thrown his way in professional baseball over the fence.

Many laughed at the ESPN college football analyst when he made the decision to play baseball because he could not find work in the sport he excelled at in college and he had not played baseball since high school.

When Tebow held his workout in front of scouts from 28 of the 30 MLB teams, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith called it a “disservice and a level of disrespect to members of the baseball community who had to compete on their grind and work their tails off.” Smith later added that he was disgusted because Tebow was “experiencing a level of privilege that most people don’t get to experience.”

On Thursday, Smith was admittedly in shock when he saw that Tebow homered in his first at-bat, only to be OK when he saw Tebow finished his instructional league debut with only one hit in six at-bats.

Over on Fox Sports 1’s carbon copy of “First Take,” co-host Shannon Sharpe argued with former “First Take” co-host Skip Bayless over the authenticity of Tebow’s home run, saying the whole thing was “scripted” for a movie in the making.

Rand Paul: Agencies Use It Or Lose It Philosophy On Gov’t Spending Needs To Stop

&;

&13;
&13;

5251125

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said the government should encourage agencies to spend less federal dollars instead of creating an incentive to spend frivolously in fear of losing future appropriations.

“Well what happens is, for example, they give a $12 billion budget and you spend $11 billion and you have a billion dollars left at the end of the year, a lot of times it stays in your agency, you get to spend it, but the appropriators may say, ‘Well, we gave them twelve and they only spent eleven, so we’ll only give them eleven this year,” Paul told The Daily Caller News Foundation Thursday.

The senator said something needs to change, citing two of his office’s recent waste reports: one on Veterans Affairs spending $300,000 on 300 unusable TVs that are sitting in storage, and the other on the city of Honolulu dumping nearly $10 million of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) money into buying apartments over property value to remain eligible for the funds.

Paul noted polices similar to those in Hawaii, where communities may lose access to CDBG dollars if year-end available funds exceed 150 percent of the current grant two years in a row, motivates agencies to dump money into contracts last-minute regardless of how unnecessary the project.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

“The one in Hawaii is similar to the one about the VA television sets in that agencies have money at the end of the year and they sort of have this use it or lose it philosophy, they either spend it or they don’t get it the next year, so they tend to just rush it out the door,” he said.

Paul said if changes were made to encourage employees to save instead of spend, it would help alleviate the country’s debt problem.

“We actually have a solution to it, or we think part of the solution, which would be giving bonuses to federal employees if they turn money back in, so if you’re in charge of a $12 billion budget and you turn a billion back in, we give you personally a bonus,” he told TheDCNF. “Right now it’s the opposite, you think, ‘My job won’t be here next year if I spend all this money,’ so this is a perverse incentive to spend it.”

The senator said his office has tallied billions of government funds annually, which invalidates advocates of big government spending’s argument there is no room in the budget to make cuts.

&13;

&13;
&13;

Despite releasing weekly reports highlighting senseless federal spending regularly over the course of the past year, Paul said he hasn’t had much luck on breaking through to those doling out funding.

“Our goal is by putting it out, that perhaps the people next year won’t appropriate it again, but so far we’re finding the appropriators just keep appropriating the same amount every year,” he said.

Newspapers Face Death Threats, Lost Subscriptions for Endorsing Hillary…

Newspapers with a history of endorsing Republican presidential candidates are losing subscribers and even receiving death threats after endorsing Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

The Arizona Republic’s editorial board has received death threats since publishing its Clinton endorsement earlier this week, according to  Arizona’s NBC affiliate 12news. It was the first time the paper endorsed a Democrat in a general election since it launched in 1890.

Meanwhile, Cincinnati Enquirer editor Peter Bhatia said his paper has lost “hundreds” of subscriptions since its editorial board broke a nearly century-long habit of backing the Republican in the presidential contest.

“There has been a substantial amount of blowback, that’s for sure,” Bhatia told TheWrap. “The people who are reacting are predominantly unhappy with the endorsement.”

The Enquirer’s Clinton endorsement has racked up nearly 1,000 comments and Bhatia has personally responded to at least 150 emails. He said the editorial board expected a reaction but never imagined how venomous some of the feedback has been.

“I expected it would be vigorous–it has been vigorous,” Bhatia said. “I guess what disappoints me on some level is how nasty some of it is. You’d be stunned by some of the names we’ve been called.”

In recent weeks, a growing number of traditionally right-leaning papers — including the Houston Chronicle and the Dallas Morning News — have broken decades-long traditions by endorsing the Democratic nominee.

The Detroit Daily News also bucked its Republican endorsement streak on Thursday by backing Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson.

Arizona Republic did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment about the death threat reports.

Earlier in the week, Arizona Republic editorial page editor Phil Boas told The New York Times that he expected “a lot of cancellations” from its decision but that financial concerns were “never a factor” when the paper decided whom to endorse.

The Dallas Morning News had not endorsed a Democrat for president since before World War II and is also feeling the effects.

“Certainly we’ve paid a price for our presidential recommendation,” Dallas Morning News editor Mike Wilson told Poynter.

Why would a newspaper risk polarizing readers with an unpopular endorsement? The Arizona Republic published it’s own explanation: “It’s a key part of our mission as journalists. It’s a tradition we’ve honored since our founding.”

The paper said it has endorsed candidates for more than 120 years because it believes its choices can inform readers and spur community debate.

“Let’s make this clear: We’re not telling you how to vote. We respect the sanctity of your decision, based on your beliefs, research and contemplation,” the editorial board wrote.

CROSS COUNTY, AR (WMC) -&13;

One Mid-South sheriff is implementing what he calls a zero-tolerance policy against creepy clowns in his county.

Tuesday, Cross County Sheriff JR Smith posted to his Facebook page and said the county had received one report of a clown sighting.

According to Smith, one person reported seeing four men dressed as clowns driving on West Meriaman Street in Wynne, Arkansas.

Smith said he wanted to quell some fears that the sheriff’s office had received multiple calls, but added that he will not tolerate the intimidation.

“If someone wishes to dress up and conceal their identity with the intent to scare or harass our citizens, they will be arrested and transported to the sheriff’s office,” Smith wrote. “Not one citizen should be or will be subjected to this act of foolishness.”

The post has been shared almost 500 times on Facebook. In the comments section, many asked whether dressing up as a clown is grounds for arrest. The sheriff responded by explaining that entertainers will not be arrested, but those dressing as clowns with the intent to conceal their identity and scare citizens will.

“Were not talking about someone dressed as clown such as Bozo,” Smith wrote.

So, unless you’re heading to entertain at a birthday party or go trick-or-treating, it might be best to leave the clown costume at home in Cross County.

Lawmakers grilled Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf on the two million fake accounts company employees created to meet sales expectations at a four-hour House Financial Services Committee hearing Thursday.

Members on both sides of the aisle lambasted Stumpf for his mismanagement of the bank and failure to take responsibility for the mass fraud at the banking giant.

“Mr. Stumpf, I have a mortgage with your bank. I wish I didn’t,” Chairman Jeb Hensarling said. “I wish I was in the position to pay it off because you have broken my trust as you have broken the trust of millions and it’s going to take a long time to earn it back”

The embattled CEO, who was raked over the coals by members in the upper chamber last week,  argued individual employees, not the company’s culture are what led to the scandal that shook the banking industry.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

“I don’t want our culture to be defined by these mistakes,” he told the panel, which were less than impressed with his answers.

While the bank was handed a $185 million fine by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the company’s board clawed back $41 million of Stumpf’s salary and 5,300 people were fired — lawmakers said the punishment doesn’t fit the gravity of the crime.

“When your stocks were bought, it benefited you and top level executives to the detriment of lower level entry employees. They get fired,” Texas Democrat Rep. Al Green said. “Top level executives get golden parachutes. And it’s business as usual. Well, Mr. chairman, this will not end by simply having some lower level employees go to jail.”

Several committee members called for his resignation, arguing the fraud happened on his watch and he should have done more to prevent it.

&13;

&13;
&13;

“I came to Congress to deregulate and because of your actions it’s really making it extremely difficult for me to advocate for main street or community banks,” Texas Republican Rep. Roger Williams said. “So I’ve got one simple question for you. When are you going to resign?”

Stumpf reiterated his promise to correct the company’s wrongdoings, noting Wells Fargo has already reimbursed $2.6 billion in fees on the unauthorized accounts.

Black Murder Violence Swamps US

&;

There were 15,696 murders in America in 2015, and nonwhites made up the vast majority of offenders, according to the latest FBI statistics.

According to the FBI, 70 percent of all murder offenders in the U.S. are nonwhite—but they include all Hispanics as “whites,” which means that the actual white offender rate is tiny.

dc-murder-scene

The figures also make it clear that nonwhite—and specifically black—violence and murders are swamping the U.S., with a dramatic 10.8 percent increase in the number of homicides from 2014 to 2015.

The murder rate—which has now reached a staggering 43 homicides per day—is driven primarily by black and Hispanic gunmen.

According to the FBI, 30.2 percent of murder offenders arrested in 2015 were classified as “white”—but the FBI infamously follows the Federal Government guidelines of race, which includes all Hispanics as “whites.”

The Federal Government only has the following categories of offenders: “white,” “black,” “American Indian or Alaska Native,” and “Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. All Hispanics are added to the “white” category, along with all North Africans, Arabs, Middle Easterners, and Jews.

As a result, the “30 percent white” murder offender figures are grossly exaggerated.

For example, a 2014 report revealed that the murder rate for Hispanics is twice the murder rate for whites, and homicide is the second-leading cause of death for Hispanics ages 15 to 24.

The FBI victim statistics show that in 2015, at least 900 more black males were killed in that year than in 2014.

This rising violence was driven by an increase in the murders of black men, and by an increase in the number of gun murders, the data shows.

The percentage of murders committed with guns increased to 71.5 percent, the figures also showed.

In 2015, black men were about nine times more likely to be murdered than white men, and black women were three times more likely to be murdered than white women.

A third of the murder increase was driven by upticks in all large cities with nonwhite populations: Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Washington DC, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Nashville, and St Louis.

Baltimore saw the greatest increase in murders, with 133 more people killed in 2015 than in 2014, pushing the city to its highest-ever murder rate.

In St Louis, which already had one of the highest murder rates in the U.S., murders increased again last year.

* The FBI figures also included a section on rapes committed in the U.S. during 2015. According to their statistics, there were 90,185 rapes committed in America last year—or an astonishing 247 rapes every day.

For this crime—and this crime only—the FBI report refuses to provide any breakdowns on race of offender or victim. This is an obvious ploy to try and hide the fact that the vast majority of rapes in America are carried out by nonwhites, and that white victims make up a disproportionately large number of victims.

The tiny chip could be embedded into batteries of all sizes and monitor how healthy and charged they are. That in turn would mean that the batteries would become much safer and quicker to charge, according to the scientist that developed it. Unhealthy lithium-ion batteries can be at risk of exploding or catching fire, as well as gradually losing their capacity so that they run out more quickly.

Man may have contracted Zika from dying dad’s tears…

&;
&13;
&13;
&13;

The father, 73, had been diagnosed with prostate cancer eight months before his June death, the report says. He was receiving radiation therapy and anti-androgen therapy, which may have made it easier for the virus to replicate, said Dr. Sankar Swaminathan, chief of the infectious diseases division at University of Utah Health Care. But Swaminathan said the cancer and treatment doesn’t totally explain why the man had such extremely high levels.

He became ill after returning from a three-week trip to the southwest coast of Mexico, his native country that he left in 2003 to move to the United States, the paper says. The report still doesn’t provide the man’s name or the exact spot in Mexico he visited.

In Mexico, he ate ceviche and soft boiled turtle eggs and went fishing in the ocean, but those food choices and activities played no role in coming down with the virus, Swaminathan said. He and other family members were bitten by mosquitoes, leading him and several others to come down with Zika.

His son, a healthy 38-year-old, became sick five days after visiting his father in the hospital and was diagnosed with Zika. He recovered and later told doctors that he had helped nurses care for his father, including wiping his eyes without gloves.

None of the nurses or doctors who treated his father became sick, or did other family members. Health officials and researchers tested mosquitoes in the Salt Lake City area and didn’t find any Zika-infected bugs.

The virus causes only a mild illness in most people. But during recent outbreaks in Latin America, scientists discovered that infection during pregnancy has led to severe brain-related birth defects.

Researchers in this new report concur with a previous assessment by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the son contracted the virus through a new method other than the two main sources: mosquito bites and sexual activity with an infected person.

But Swaminathan said the findings don’t mean people visiting Zika-infested areas and countries need to wear gloves all of the time. They believe the rare transmission happened primarily because the father’s extremely high levels of the virus.

“There’s no risk of shaking hands with a person who has a typical Zika infection,” said Swaminathan, who treated the two.

Trayvon Martin’s Parents Sign Book Deal To Write ‘Rest In Power’

&;

&13;
&13;

5250286

Trayvon Martin’s parents have signed a book deal with publisher Random House’s One World to tell the story of the life and death of their son.

The book, by Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, will be called “Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayon Martin,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Florida teenager was shot and killed by George Zimmerman after he left a convenience store. Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder on the basis that it was self-defense. Chris Jackson, editor-in-chief at One World, said the book will cover how his acquittal led to the national movement called Black Lives Matter.(RELATED: Beyonce Brings Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin And Eric Garner’s Mothers On The Red Carpet)

“It first brings Trayvon back to life as the full, three-dimensional, complex kid he was, through his parents’ eyes,” Jackson said. “And then to the dark and confusing days following his death, which slowly transform into the blossoming of a powerful, historic movement for change and healing that we’re still watching unfold five years later. Everyone who’s been reading the manuscript is in tears by the second chapter.” (RELATED: Al Sharpton: Prince Donated To Trayvon Martin’s Family)

&13;

&13;
&13;

“It’s not just about the mournful story about losing a child, but it’s also how that moment ignited this global movement,” Jackson told the Hollywood Reporter.

The book is scheduled to come out Jan. 31, 2017.

Suspect In Texas Killings Was Deported Not Once, Not Twice, But Three Times

&;

&13;
&13;

5250063

A murder suspect who was arrested in Austin, Texas, Tuesday is a Mexican man who has been deported three times from the U.S.

Authorities deported Juan Navarro Rios in 1996, 2009, and 2014. Reasons for Rios’ deportations include an unspecified felony conviction, claiming to be a U.S. citizen, and for coming back to the U.S. after being previously deported.

“This is an example of the worst of the worst that we go after on a daily basis,” said Hector Gomez, supervisory deputy marshal of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. Rios, 40, is wanted for having allegedly shot and killed two people driving down the road ans then kidnapping a landscaper.

The illegal immigrant has also been convicted of assault and hindering prosecution. Rios had a showdown with the police at his sister’s apartment complex where authorities caught him as he tried to run away from them. Before running away though, Rios started a fire in his sister’s place and broke into the neighboring apartment while fleeing a SWAT team’s pursuit.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) put an immigration detainer on Rios, meaning that they don’t want to prevent him from making bail. “This is an indictment against the federal government’s failure to police the border and another reason that Texas must continue to focus on border security,” Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said of Rios’ ability to get back into the U.S. despite multiple previous deportations.

Elon Musk Groks Mars Colonization

&;

&13;
&13;

5249856

You might have heard that billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk wants to colonize Mars. While many are describing it as “ambitious,” not everyone groks this idea. Some on the Left are already mocking it (see The Grist’s “Spaced Out” post), at least partly because they see it as a form of escapism. (Why would we worry about saving the environment on Earth if we can just move to another planet?) And I’m sure that the same conservatives who mocked the “starry-eyed” Newt Gingrich for promising to build a moon base by the end of his second term as president will think this a utopian scheme, if not a boondoggle.

The good news for those who are skeptical of governmental projects is that Musk is proposing a private (not public) venture. The bad news is that, whether it was by John F. Kennedy or Ronald Reagan, a nation that once challenged our spirit of discovery has lost its sense of adventure. Instead, we just get excited about the newest iPhone.

If you think I’m exaggerating, consider that in the wake of the Challenger disaster, President Reagan explained to America’s schoolchildren that horrible accidents are an inherent danger: “It’s all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It’s all part of taking a chance and expanding man’s horizons. The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave,” he said.

At some point, we quit reaching for the stars. But there are good arguments for taking on such challenges.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

During a recent episode of The Tom Woods Show, Dr. Robert Zubrin, founder and president of the Mars Society (yes, such a thing exists), argued there were three reasons to do this: (1) the Science; (2) the Challenge: “Societies grow when they are challenged,” Zubrin said, “And stagnate when they’re not.” He also noted that this growth would create intellectual capital (kids become scientists, engineers, etc., when they get excited about something); and (3) the Future. By establishing the first “Plymouth Rock human settling on Mars,” Zubrin continued, “People 500 years from now won’t think of all our little political rumbles…compared to what we did to open up the future.”

So for the naysayers who can’t imagine the possibility of colonizing Mars, I would say this: the future looks much brighter for those who bravely seek opportunities and possibilities for growth than for those who imagine disaster after disaster.

At least one dead…

DEVELOPING: More than 100 people were reported hurt — and others remained trapped — after a train slammed into a station in Hoboken, New Jersey Thursday morning as emergency workers rushed to the scene.

&;

Witnesses said the train never slowed down, crashing through barriers into the terminal’s reception area. Photos showed major structural damage to the Lackawana Station, including a crumbled wall and mangled beams.

&13;

The crash unfolded around 8:30 a.m., a peak time in the morning commute for the New York City area.

&13;

The National Transportation Safety Board told Fox News it was gathering information on a possible cause.

&13;

Rail service was suspended in and out of Hoboken, roughly 7 miles west of New York City.

&13;

A similar crash at the station in December 1985 left 30 people injured. That train also slammed through a barrier.

Bill Cosby’s Rape Scandal Has Inspired New Legislation In California

&;

&13;
&13;

Gov. Jerry Brown of California has signed a new bill into law that will eliminate the statute of limitations in certain rape and child molestation cases, the Associated Press reports.

The previous statute of limitations included a 10-year time limit for prosecutors to file charges of rape or child molestation. Due to the statute, a number of women who claim they were sexually assaulted by Cosby were unable to file a case despite having “sufficient evidence to prove a case beyond reasonable doubt.”

At the start of 2017 in the state of California, the statute of limitations in such cases will end as well as the time limits on “cases in which the statute of limitations has not yet expired.”

The new law won’t help those who made allegations “dating back more than 10 years,” including some of Cosby’s alleged victims. (RELATED: Cosby Pulled Out The Race Card In Sex Assault Case)

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

California is not the first state to sign new legislation regarding rape and molestation cases since the nationwide attention resulting from Cosby’s alleged assaults. Seventeen states, in addition to California, have already dealt away with their statute of limitations on rape.

Colorado doubled the amount of time sexual assault victims have to file charges, from 10 to 20 years, in June. Nevada has also extended its time limit “from four to 20 years last year after testimony by one of Cosby’s accusers,” the Associated Press reports.

Brown made the announcement of the new state law Wednesday without comment.

California state Sen. Connie Leyva said the law “tells every rape and sexual assault victim in California that they matter and that, regardless of when they are ready to come forward, they will always have an opportunity to seek justice in a court of law.”

&13;

&13;
&13;

“Rapists should never be able to evade legal consequences simply because an arbitrary time limit has expired,” the California Democrat continued. “There must never be an expiration date on justice!”

Cosby and his lawyers continue to maintain the comedian’s innocence against dozens of women who have accused him of assault. Cosby’s trial date is set to begin no later than June 5, 2017.

And, it’s an unprecedented move, and one that, as Mr. DeMint pointed out, is irreversible. Once we give up this oversight role, we can’t get it back.”

He added that Internet oversight is a case of, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Pai further stated, “[I]f you cherish free expression, and free speech rights generally, you should be worried, I think, when there’s — this oversight role’s going to be ceded to potentially, foreign governments who might not share our values.”

A resolution requesting a formal Department of State investigation into the disappearance of David Sneddon passed the House of Representatives today, according to a press release.

Sneddon, a Utah native and Brigham Young University student, vanished Aug. 14, 2004, while on a hike along the Jinsha River near Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan, China. Chinese authorities said that David, who was 24 at the time of his disappearance, probably fell in the river and drowned, but his body was never recovered.

Sneddon may have actually been kidnapped by the North Koreans, reports indicate. Earlier this month, Choi Sun-yong, head of the Abductees Family Union in South Korea, revealed that David matched the description of Kim Jong Un’s personal English teacher. Sneddon is said to be alive, healthy, and married with children.

An official Department of State investigation into this matter depends on the approval of pending legislation.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

Utah Rep. Chris Stewart introduced House Congressional Resolution 114 Feb. 10, 2016 after evidence that Sneddon might have been taken by North Koreans surfaced. The resolution calls for a formal State Department investigation into whether or not the Korean government actually abducted Sneddon and U.S. efforts to recover him.

His family and North Korean policy experts believe that Sneddon was, in fact, abducted by North Koreans. A number of reports suggest that North Korean operatives working in China may have picked David up for his language abilities. Sneddon is a native English speaker and fluent in Korean, skills that the North Koreans would likely see as highly valuable.

The congressman knows the Sneddons personally and has a vested interest in this case, Rep. Stewart’s office told TheDCNF. The Sneddons, as well as many others, are eager to see David come home. The passing of House Congressional Resolution 114 is a step towards that goal.

“As the resolution indicates, there is more work to be done by the State Department and Intelligence Community,” Rep. Stewart said in the press release. “Particularly given the recent reports out of South Korea that David may be alive, David’s family deserves answers, and until we find those answers we should continue to pursue all possible explanations for David’s disappearance.”

&13;

&13;
&13;

Launching an investigation into Sneddon’s disappearance will be challenging. U.S. ties to China are strained, and the U.S. and North Korea have been in a firm standoff since Pyongyang conducted its fifth nuclear test Sept. 9.

Sen Dem Report Blasting EPA’s Critics Has Ties To Enviro-Group

&;

&13;
&13;

5249140

A Democratic senator known for crusading against global warming skeptics scrambled Wednesday to scrub a report criticizing Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) critics on his website of connections to environmental groups.

EPA’s critics are in cahoots with shadowy figures in the fossil fuel industry, a report posted Monday on Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s website claimed.

The document appears to have been created by an attorney in conjuction with EarthJustice, a green legal group currently defending the EPA in the courts, according to data obtained by The Washington Free Beacon.

After reporters reached out to Whitehouse and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a new version of the report materialized online, scrubbed of digital fingerprints and linked to David Baron, an EarthJustice attorney working on behalf of the Sierra Club.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

The original report was released Monday by Whitehouse, Reid, and Sens. Barbara Boxer of California, and Ed Markey of Massachusetts, and is crafted to resemble a lawsuit challenging environmental regulations on carbon emissions.

Metadata of the report indicates that Baron assisted the Democratic senators in putting together the report. Baron is listed as the “author” of the report in the metadata.

The updated version of the report was submitted to the website at 9:42 a.m. Wednesday, according to the document’s metadata, and lists a White House staffer as its author.

While Baron is slated as the “author” of the initial report, there is clear evidence that he or EarthJustice explicitly had a hand in writing the report.

&13;

&13;
&13;

The report “demonstrates that the state officials, trade associations, front groups, and industry-funded scientists participating in the [EPA regulation legal] challenge actually represent the interests of the fossil fuel industry,” a press statement on Whitehouse’s website states.

Ironically, many of the same senators involved in Whitehouse’s report were also instrumental in carrying out a clandestine effort to publicly shame on the senate floor non-profit groups they considered global warming “denialists.”

Whitehouse directed 19 of his fellow Democratic senators July 11 to attack conservative and libertarian organizations such as Americans for Prosperity and the Cato Institute on the chamber floors for engaging in what the senators call a “web of denial.”

Democratic Sens. Al Franken of Minnesota, Boxer and Whitehouse needled various groups – the Heritage Foundation, the Reason Foundation, and the Hoover Institute among the various groups targeted.

Whitehouse is also known for browbeating groups into divorcing from the fossil fuel industry, in addition to those refusing to fall in line with environmental political narratives.

The American Geophysical Union (AGU), which boasts more than 62,000 members worldwide, announced in May, for instance, that it would review and possibly reconsider a decision it made in April to continue its relationship with Exxon after Whitehouse and California Rep. Ted Lieu, a Democrat, harassed the group into separating from the oil company.

No Screening for Radical Views in U.S. Refugee Vetting…

&;
&13;

The United States runs the names of potential refugees through terrorism and law enforcement databases and conducts health screenings but makes no effort to learn whether they harbor extremist views, an administration official acknowledged Wednesday.

Simon Henshaw, principal deputy assistant secretary of the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, made the admission during testimony at a Senate hearing on President Obama’s Syrian refugee program.

“Do you make any inquiry about practices that we reject in the United States, like female genital mutilation?”

Republicans on the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest have expressed concerns that Obama’s decision to admit more than 10,000 Syrian refugees over the past 12 months and his plan to increase that number in the coming 12 months is reckless in light of the threat posed by Islamic extremism.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, the Alabama Republican who chairs the subcommittee, grilled Henshaw about the procedures for screening refugee applicants. “Do you make any inquiry about practices that we reject in the United States, like female genital mutilation?” he asked. “Do you say, ‘Do you believe in that and when you come to the United States will you comply with the laws of the United States on that kind of question?’”

Henshaw said U.S. officials explain American law and customs but do not inquire about refugees’ political beliefs.

“On all questions, we make it clear to refugees that we’re a nation of laws and that they need to comply with our laws,” he said.

Sessions pointed to a Justice Department report indicating that the United States last year experienced 27 “honor killings,” a practice that wins widespread approval in some Muslim-dominated countries that practice Sharia Law.

Henshaw drew a distinction between Muslim refugees and other Muslim immigrants.

“I’m not sure those honor killings took place among the resettled refugee community in the United States,” he said.

Henshaw said the government operates a cultural orientation program and insisted that refugees make a smooth transition to Americanism.

“Senator, I see no evidence to show that refugee communities are bringing these values into the United States,” he said. “I see that they’re becoming good American citizens, members of the military, members of our police … people that have U.S.-American values.”

Sessions noted that the perpetrators of Muslim honor killings come from the same cultural backgrounds as refugees. He also noted that 40 refugees have been charged with terrorism-related crimes in the United States.

“So you’re not perfect in your admission, I have to admit,” Sessions said.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has proposed adding an ideological component to America’s screening procedures to try to weed out people who would be hostile to American values. It is an idea first floated by Trump adviser and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in July.

&13;

There is strong evidence that many Muslims hold views that clash with Western norms. In the Great Britain, police recorded more than 11,000 “honor” crimes between 2010 and 2014. A British think tank counted 18 honor killings in that country from 2010 to 2014.

A 2013 survey sponsored by Pew Research Center fond that 99 percent of Muslims in Afghanistan and 91 percent of Iraqi Muslims favored making Sharia law the official law of their countries. A 2011 Pew survey found that 40 percent of Pakistanis believed it is often or sometimes justified to kill a woman engaged in premarital sex or adultery in order to protect the family’s honor.

Aside from security questions, Sessions probed Henshaw about whether the education and language skills of refugees make them a good fit for the United States. Henshaw acknowledged that the government’s decisions to grant refugee applications “are based [exclusively] on their vulnerabilities.”

But he added, “I have to say, we receive many refugees with a high level of education, particularly from the Middle East.”

The government’s own statistics suggest that is an exaggeration, however. According to the latest report by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, refugees from the Middle East in 2014 — the most recent year available — had an average of 10.9 years of education before entering the United States. That was above average for refugees, as was the 20 percent who had a college degree.

&13;
&13;

But it was still below the education level of Americans, and it did not translate into job success. Only 37.1 percent of Middle East refugees were working, compared with the overall refugee rate of 48.5 percent.

Obamacare Dying…

When Health Republic Insurance of New Jersey announced recently that it’s $46 million in debt and shutting down, it became the 17th failed ObamaCare co-op since the Affordable Care Act launched three years ago.

&;

Those failures – just six of the original 23 co-ops remain – have left hundreds of thousands of people scrambling for coverage. 

&13;

Meanwhile, insurers claiming big losses are leaving some state exchanges — including Indiana University Health Plans, whose exit is expected to result in 27,000 Indiana residents losing ObamaCare plans in 2017. And companies still operating in the federal and state exchanges are raising premiums for next year. 

&13;

Together, the developments are posing new challenges for Americans seeking affordable coverage, and show the highly touted overhaul of the country’s health care system is in some cases not yielding the savings President Obama once promised.

&13;

As a candidate on the campaign trail in 2008, Obama once said: “If you’ve got health insurance, we’re going to help that employer save $2,500 per family per year. … Those savings are going to be passed along to the workers.”

&13;

Nationally, though, premium hikes are expected to average 8 percent next year. Many insurance companies are seeking much more than that, for the exchange plans and those offered to employers. 

&13;

Premera in Washington state is approved to charge 19 percent more next year. Rates across California will go up an average of 13 percent. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas is asking to raise premiums a stunning 60 percent.

&13;

Long-time critics of ObamaCare say they saw it coming.

&13;

“That basic promise, that it’s going to make health care more affordable, it’s not making health care more affordable,” said Avik Roy, an author and Republican adviser. “It’s making health care more expensive, especially for the uninsured.” 

&13;

The problem remains a risk pool with too many sick people and not enough who are young and healthy. Also, federal backstop programs, aimed at helping companies that miscalculated how much to charge, are now expired. So insurance companies need higher premiums to cover payouts to doctors and hospitals.

&13;

The alternative is pulling out of health exchanges, which many companies have been doing. In recent months Aetna, United Health Care and several Blue Cross and Blue Shield subsidiaries have announced they will be leaving many of the exchanges in 2017.

&13;

“That’s going to be the future,” said Roger Stark of the Washington Policy Center in Washington State. “What we’re seeing here is the beginning of a death spiral as far as exchanges are concerned as more companies pull out.” 

&13;

In Indiana, the company pulling out of the exchange had covered 15 percent of those covered under ObamaCare. Indiana Sen. Dan Coats, a Republican, told The Washington Times this is further evidence the health care law is “collapsing before our eyes.”

&13;

The Obama administration says its signature legislation can boast plenty of successes. Twenty-million additional people are insured, whether through the exchanges, through expanded Medicaid or young adults who are able to stay on their parents’ policies. Also, the growth in health care spending nationally has slowed. 

&13;

As for rising premiums, many Democrats including presidential nominee Hillary Clinton favor offering a government public option that would compete directly with for-profit insurance companies.

&13;

“If a public option could bring premiums down, primarily by paying doctors and hospitals less and having lower overhead and no profit, that would lower federal government costs,” said Larry Levitt of the Kaiser family Foundation.

&13;

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump opposes a public option. Trump has called for scrapping ObamaCare and starting over. He favors more competition by allowing people to buy health insurance across state lines.

‘Your father is a sexual predator’…

After Bill and Hillary Clinton’s daughter attacked GOP nominee Donald Trump for daring to mention her father’s sexual “transgressions” this week, Juanita Broaddrick – who famously accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her – took to Twitter Wednesday to deliver the bad news to Chelsea Clinton: “Your parents are not good people,” and “Your father was, and probably still is, a sexual predator.”

A series of six tweets came from Broaddrick, who says Clinton raped her in a hotel room 38 years ago. WND recently reported that a nurse who treated her after the alleged sexual assault confirmed Broaddrick’s account.

After the first presidential debate Monday, Trump said he didn’t want to discuss the issue of Clinton’s sexual “transgressions” because the former first daughter was present at the event.

“I didn’t want to do it with Chelsea … I didn’t want to say what I was going to say with Chelsea in the room,” Trump told ABC News.

Chelsea responded to Trump’s statement during an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine:

“It’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country safe and Americans safe here at home and around the world. …

“And candidly, I don’t remember a time in my life when my parents and my family weren’t being attacked, and so it just sort of seems to be in that tradition, unfortunately. And what I find most troubling by far are Trump’s — and we talked about this when you interviewed me the night before the Iowa caucus — are Trump’s continued, relentless attacks on whole swaths of our country and even our global community: women, Muslims, Americans with disabilities, a Gold Star family. I mean, that, to me, is far more troubling than whatever his most recent screed against my mom or my family [is].”

That’s what prompted Broaddrick to send the following six tweets to Chelsea:
Broaddrick-TW1

Broaddrick-TW2

Broaddrick-TW3

Broaddrick-TW4

Broaddrick-TW5

Broaddrick-TW6

As WND reported, Broaddrick has accused Hillary of concealing her husband’s sex crimes.

In 1978, during then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton’s gubernatorial bid, Broaddrick was a nursing home administrator and volunteer for the Clinton campaign.their-lives

She told Clinton noticed her during a campaign stop.

“He would just sort of insinuate, you know when you are in Little Rock let’s get together. Let’s talk about the industry,” she recalled during a November interview on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.” “Let’s talk about the needs of the nursing homes, and I was very excited about that.”

In the spring, Broaddrick attended a convention in Little Rock, along with her friend and nursing employee Norma Rogers. The two women stayed in a room at the Camelot Hotel.

“Their Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine” – available at the WND Superstore – is a wake-up call to Americans everywhere to re-evaluate this ruthless power couple and prevent Hillary Clinton from returning to the White House.

When Broaddrick checked in with the Clinton campaign, she said she was given instructions to contact Clinton at his private apartment.

“I called his apartment and he answered,” she said. “And he said ‘Well, why don’t we meet in the Camelot Hotel coffee room and we can get together there and talk. And I said ‘That would be fine.’”

But then Clinton decided to meet her inside her room, rather than at the hotel coffee shop.

“A time later and I’m not sure how long it was, he called my room, which he said he would do when he got to the coffee shop,” she said. “And he said ‘There are too many people down here. It’s too crowded. There’s reporters and can we just meet in your room?’”

She continued, “And it sort of took me back a little bit, Aaron. But I did say, ‘OK, I’ll order coffee to the room,’ which I did and that’s when things sort of got out of hand. And it was very unexpected. It was, you might even say, brutal. With the biting of my lip.”

A lip-biting fetish

Broaddrick didn’t go into detail about the alleged rape, as she said most of the information has been reported through the years.

In 1999, she said Clinton kissed her and began biting her lip as she tried to pull away. Then, she claims, Clinton pushed her down onto the bed. She told NBC’s “Dateline”: “I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen but he wouldn’t listen to me. … It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.’”

At that point, she says, Clinton held her right shoulder down and continued biting her lip.

After the assault, she told “Dateline,” “[Clinton] got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at the moment and he walks to the door, and calmly puts on his sunglasses. And before he goes out the door he says ‘You better get some ice on that.’ And he turned and went out the door.”

In the November interview, Broaddrick recalled how her friend returned to their room to look for her after she noticed Broaddrick had been absent from the convention.

“I was in a state of shock afterward,”  she told Aaron Klein.  “And I know my nurse came back to the room to check on me because she hadn’t heard from me. … She came up and it was devastating to her and to me to find me in the condition that I was in.

“We really did not know what to do. We sat and talked and she got ice for my mouth. … It was four times the size that it should be. And she got ice for me and we decided then I just wanted to go home. I just wanted to get out of there, which we did.”

Broaddrick’s account is backed up by Norma Rogers, the nurse who said she treated her in the hotel room after the incident. Asked if she has any doubts about Broaddrick’s story, Rogers said, “Oh, absolutely none whatsoever.”

“The Clintons’ War on Women” is available at the WND Superstore

Broaddrick’s claim that Clinton bit her lip repeatedly is reminiscent of a similar charge by former Miss America pageant winner Elizabeth Ward Gracen, who had a consensual affair with Clinton. Gracen reported that Clinton bit her lip during their sexual encounters.

Hillary and Bill approach Broaddrick

After three weeks had passed, Broaddrick told Klein, Hillary approached her at a private fundraiser.

“And so then about that time, I see them coming through the kitchen area. And some people there are pointing to me,” she recalled. “He goes one direction and she comes directly to me. Then panic sort of starting to set in with me. And I thought, ‘Oh my God, what do I do now?’”

Broaddrick told Klein that Hillary said, “It’s so nice to meet you.”

“And [Hillary] said, ‘I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate the things you do for him.’ And I just stood there. I was sort of you might say shell-shocked.

“And she said, ‘Do you understand? Everything you do.’

“She tried to take a hold of my hand and I left. I told the girls I can’t take this. I’m leaving. So I immediately left.”

Broaddrick added, “What really went through my mind at that time is, ‘She knows. She knew. She’s covering it up and she expects me to do the very same thing.’”

Then, in 1991, Clinton approached Broaddrick at a meeting at the Riverfront Hotel in Little Rock.

When the Clinton campaign learned Broaddrick was at the meeting, she said, “they called me out of the meeting and pointed to an area to go down around the corner by an elevator area. And I walked around the corner and there he stands.”

“And he immediately comes over to me with this gushing apology. Like, ‘I’m so sorry for what happened. I hope you can forgive me. I’m a family man now. I have a daughter. I’m a changed man. I would never do anything like that again.’”

Broaddrick said she believed Clinton was remorseful until one week later – when he announced his campaign for the White House.

“But still I have to thank him for that day because the blame then went off of me and on to him. And I knew that it wasn’t my fault. I knew that I didn’t use good judgement but I knew that the incident was no longer my fault.”

The rape is described by Juanita Broaddrick to Candice Jackson in gruesome detail here.

White House Knew Syrian Aid Convoy Would Be Hit By Air Strikes, Did Nothing

&;

&13;
&13;

5248679

The Obama administration’s top man in Syria was warned of one of the most devastating attacks on a premier humanitarian organization a full two days before it happened, but the administration failed to do anything about it.

Michael Ratney, the U.S. special envoy to Syria, and envoys from the Netherlands, U.K., and Canada were warned that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was planning to conduct an air strike on several outposts belonging to the Syrian Civil Defense, reported The Daily Beast’s Michael Weiss Monday. Commonly known as the White Helmets, the Syrian Civil Defense is a rescue organization famous for pulling Syrian civilians from rubble created by Assad and his Russian allies.

“We just received a message from the spotters, just an hour ago, they detected messages from the regime radio that they will attack [Syrian Civil Defense] centers in northern Aleppo,” a source who was present when the meeting where the envoys were informed of the impending attacks told Weiss, quoting White Helmets head Raed al-Saleh. “First with surface-to-surface missiles and, if they miss, they will use spies on the group to adjust coordinates and come back.”

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

Saleh discovered the plot upon receiving intercepted radio chatter between Assad’s military officers while they were planning the strike on several White Helmets staging areas in Aleppo. Two days later, three out of four of the areas staging areas were obliterated, including two ambulance depots and a fire station.

Ratney did not comment to The Daily Beast on the warning or whether the administration did anything to help prevent the attack, however, a Daily Beast source present at the meeting said it was “very fucking bizarre. They were basically saying ‘yes, this is awful, but we’re not going to do anything about it.” A second source told Weiss that the intelligence seemed to have little effect on the envoys.

Syrian Official Giggles When Confronted About Hospital Bombing [VIDEO]

&;

&13;
&13;

5248447

Syria’s UN Ambassador Bashar Al Jaafari giggled when an Al Jazeera English reporter asked him if the Syrian regime was responsible for bombing two hospitals in Aleppo.

WATCH:

The question comes after the Assad regime targeted the last two remaining hospitals in the rebel-held areas of Aleppo.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

Aleppo residents report it was the worst bombing in the nearly five years of civil war, including the use of bunker busting bombs by Russia.

Hundreds of Aleppo residents have been killed in the last five days, after a failed ceasefire brokered by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

The hospitals were struck in the middle of the night, and wiped out the only remaining rapid response trauma center in that area of the city. There are nearly 250,000 residents in rebel-held Aleppo, and food supplies have nearly hit zero.

Russia and Syria have undertaken a concerted effort to make life as miserable as possible inside Aleppo, to accelerate their siege of the city. Save the Children, an international non-governmental organization told The New York Times yesterday children were “dying on the floors of hospitals” for want of medical supplies.

&13;

&13;
&13;

After the bombing, there is no hospital floor for them to die on.

FREEFALL: Fall TV Premiere Week Ratings Down Double Digits…

Fall TV Premiere Week Ratings: “Nothing’s Breaking Out Like Last Year”

No ‘Empire’ (or even a ‘Blindspot’), but NBC and CBS have possible hits on their hands and Fox and ABC struggle as overall live tune-in on the Big Four networks falls double digits from 2015.

&;

It’s good to be NBC and CBS. The dueling broadcast networks kicked off the fall tightly matched in the key demo.

&13;

Ahead of time-shifting lifts, a handful of promising premieres, stable returns and the lingering appeal of the NFL delivered NBC an average 2.51 rating in adults 18-to-49 — with CBS right behind with a 2.46. Each of the two networks pulled nearly the combined total of softer ABC and Fox.

&13;

“First week just shows what promotion can do,” observes analyst Sam Armando, lead investment director at MediaVest-Spark, noting especially strong turn-outs for heavily advertised This Is Us (NBC) and Designated Survivor (ABC). “Half of the battle is getting the sampling, and the networks seem to be doing a good job of that.”

&13;

This Is Us and Designated Survivor also lead early improvement as well, each climbing roughly 1.5 points in the first round of live-plus-3 ratings. But neither of those shows — nor CBS stand-outs Kevin Can Wait and Bull — have yet to boast near the impact of an Empire or even the top launch of last fall’s premiere week, NBC’s Blindspot, which netted a 3.1 rating in the key demo for its live premiere. In fact, Big Four ratings overall were down 12 percent from 2015.

&13;

“Nothing’s breaking out like last year,” adds Armando, “But we’re seeing some consistent performance across the different nights of the week.”

&13;

&13;

As has become an annual part of the premiere week narrative, each member of the Big Four has succeeded in having at least one thing to crow about. NBC won the week in the key demo for the fifth straight year, successfully launching This Is Us and seeing little ratings erosion for reality flagship The Voice. CBS is the most stable, year over year, and scored a boffo win on Friday with its MacGyver reboot — on top of strong launches on more easily programmed nights. ABC’s Designated Survivor currently ranks as the biggest grower among adults 18-49, enjoying the best live-plus-3 ratings lift since Empire premiere in 2014. (And, though it currently ranks a distant third, ABC would be a narrow No. 2 if sports were cut out of the ratings equation.) And, speaking of Empire, the sting of Fox’s current fourth-place status is lessened by the fact that it still boasts the No. 1 series on broadcast. Empire‘s season premiere has already climbed to a 5.5 rating among adults 18-49 after just three days of time-shifting.

&13;

But wins remain relative this early in the game. The current rankings, indicative as they might be of the weeks and months to come, are relatively immune to the performance of any one member of the freshman crop. Even the strongest fall launches — even the ones that have already nabbed a full season — will have to prove endurance with both linear and nonlinear viewers to still be in the conversation this time next year.

The Conservative Lion Of The 9th Circuit Is Reitiring

&;

&13;
&13;

Judge Diamuid O’Scannlain, the conservative pillar of the sprawling, solidly liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, will assume senior status at the end of the year.

A federal judge who assumes senior status abdicates regular duties, but may still participate in a handful of cases as needed.

O’Scannlain’s departure from the bench is important in several respects. In the first place, the 9th Circuit will be deprived of its leading conservative voice. His departure effectively leaves four vacancies on the nation’s largest appeals court (there are currently two empty seats on the 9th Circuit, and the nomination of District Judge Lucy Koh to fill the third empty seat is unlikely to be taken up by the U.S. Senate.) With O’Scannlain’s retirement leaving a fourth opening, the next president will be able to meaningfully affect the direction of the 9th Circuit.

This is especially important in that the 9th Circuit is tracking closer to the center in recent years. Though the court is still stacked with liberal jurists (two thirds of the court’s 29 judges were appointed by Democratic presidents), most of the court’s Carter-appointees have retired in recent years, depriving the bench of its far-left flank. Stripping the court’s right-wing of its center of gravity could arrest this process — or hasten it. (RELATED: It’s Now A Federal Crime To Visit Someone’s Website If They Tell You Not To)

&13;
&13;
&13;

Secondly, as Above the Law’s David Lat points out, O’Scannlain was a powerful advocate for splitting the 9th Circuit into two new appeals courts. 9 states sit within the Court’s jurisdiction, representing a significant swath of the population. At nearly 30 judges, it is by far the largest circuit court in the country. Justices Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy endorsed his view in 2007, telling a Congressional panel that splitting the 9th was the consensus position on the Supreme Court.

Finally, he was a leading “feeder judge.” A feeder judge is a judge whose law clerks are often subsequently selected to clerk for a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. He consistently produced clerks (about 20) for the high court’s right wing during three decades on the federal bench.

Known for his cordiality, O’Scannlain occasionally turned a sharp phrase, such as this footnote from a recent dissent:

‘Circuit split’ perhaps does not fully describe the resulting state of affairs. It is more like we have spun out of the known legal universe and are now orbiting alone in some cold, dark corner of a far-off galaxy, where no one can hear the scream ‘separation of powers.’

Maryland Proposes America’s Strictest Fracking Rules

&;

&13;
&13;

5247739

Maryland unveiled what may be country’s strictest regulations on hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” yet.

In Maryland, State Department of the Environment introduced new rules which would prevent fracking within 1,000 feet of a private drinking water well, require four layers of steel casings and cement around wells, and force energy companies to replace any contaminated water.

These rules “will be the most stringent and protective environmental shale regulations in the country,” Ben Grumbles, Maryland’s Environmental Secretary, said in a statement Tuesday. “If fracking ever comes to western Maryland, these rigorous regulations will be in place beforehand to help ensure safe and responsible energy development.”

State officials said they expect fracking regulations to be formally proposed in mid-November with a 30-day public comment period. State lawmakers have until the end of the year to formally adopt the regulations.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

Maryland currently has a total ban on fracking which lasts through late 2017, and environmentalists are worried state officials won’t regulate fracking as strictly as possible.

“If they don’t have enough capacity to write the regulations, how can we believe they’ll have enough capacity to effectively implement all the safeguards?” Josh Tulkin, director of the Maryland Chapter of The Sierra Club, told The Baltimore Sun.

Environmentalists and the oil industry disliked Maryland’s previously proposed regulations. Environmentalists claim the regulations would lead to earthquakes and groundwater contamination, despite being drafted by former Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan supports fracking because of the new jobs and wealth into the state. Several counties in western Maryland are on top of the Marcellus shale formation, which is the largest reserve of natural gas in the U.S. Even modest landowners on the shale formation can make up to $35,000 a month in royalties payments.

&13;

&13;
&13;

O’Malley and the state’s Democratic-led General Assembly imposed a moratorium on fracking in 2011, citing alleged risks of groundwater contamination and increased earthquake activity.

Scientists and government bodies have repeatedly agreed that fracking does not cause the contamination of groundwater. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) science advisers recently stated that fracking has no “widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water in the United States.” The EPA’s assessment of fracking risks to groundwater concurs with numerous scientific studies from regulatory bodiesacademics, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.

“To my knowledge, I still have not seen any evidence of fracking per se contaminating groundwater,” Obama’s Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz told reporters.

Private Space Plane To Fly First Ever UN Space Mission In 2021

&;

&13;
&13;

5247966

The United Nations’ announced plans Tuesday to launch its first-ever space mission in 2021 with the help of U.S. -based company Sierra Nevada.

A two-week long robotic mission to low-Earth orbit will be paid for by the U.N. Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and launched on Sierra Nevada’s shuttle, called Dream Chaser. Any U.N. member states would be able to put a small payload of scientific experiments onto the shuttle.

“One of UNOOSA’s core responsibilities is to promote international cooperation in the peaceful use of outer space,” Simonetta Di Pippo, Director of UNOOSA, said in a statement. “I am proud to say that one of the ways UNOOSA will achieve this, in cooperation with our partner SNC [Sierra Nevada Corporation], is by dedicating an entire microgravity mission to United Nations member states, many of which do not have the infrastructure or financial backing to have a stand-alone space program.”

UNOOSA and Sierra Nevada are also looking for sponsors to help fund the mission and any country which launched an experiment would pay a small fee. Similar international projects have a dismal record.

&13;

&13;
&13;
&13;

Dream Chaser will undergo its first test flight later this year and the company plans to send the shuttle into space in late 2019. Sierra Nevada shipped Dream Chaser, the world’s first private and pilot-less space shuttle, to California for testing in July.

“We’re going to take it up to a very high altitude. We’re going to drop it and it’s going to fly itself,” Mark Sirangelo, the vice president of Sierra Nevada Space Systems, told a local Colorado news outlet. “It’s autonomous space vehicle, which means that onboard computers control everything that it does.”

NASA has a contract to use Dream Chaser to resupply the International Space Station by carrying cargo and eventually people up to it. Further development of the shuttle includes a manned version that would be capable of carrying up to seven people to and from low-Earth-orbit.

Sierra Nevada intends Dream Chaser to be fully reusable, which could make the drone shuttle much cheaper than NASA’s manned shuttle. Reusable space technology is considered a major advance because it has the potential to lower the costs of getting into orbit, which are high due to expensive rocket components. Currently, the only working space shuttle drone is the Boeing X-37, operated by the U.S. Air Force for orbital spaceflight missions.

&13;

&13;
&13;

America’s now decommissioned Space Shuttle was only technically reusable because its giant fuel tank was discarded after each launch, and its side boosters were parachuted into corrosive salt water. This required them to be extensively refurbished after use, making the Space Shuttle extremely expensive.
