Whole Foods Ranked Worst on Cancer-Linked Package Chemicals

Whole Foods Market, hailed for its high standards for healthy food, ranked worst in a study of five major U.S. grocery chains for chemicals it uses in packaging at its popular hot-food bar. In response, the company said it has removed all the coated paper products in question and has started a search for new biodegradable packaging. The study — released by watchdog groups Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families and Toxic-Free Future — found that Amazon.com Inc.’s grocer was the biggest offender when it came to food contact papers that appear to have been treated with a class of chemicals, some…

U.S. Navy to release genetically engineered organisms into the ocean, unleashing mass genetic pollution with devastating consequences

No longer content to tinker with the genetic design of crops and humans, scientists – at the behest of the U.S. Military – are now turning their attention to the world’s oceans. As reported by Defense One, the Pentagon is looking at various ways in which to genetically engineer marine microorganisms into living surveillance equipment capable of detecting enemy submarines, divers and other suspicious underwater traffic. The Military is also looking at using genetic engineering to create living camouflage in which creatures react to their surroundings to avoid detection, along with a host of other potentially nefarious applications. While such…

Porch Pirates Sting uses fake Amazon boxes, GPS to catch would-be thieves

The explosion in online shopping has led to porch pirates and stoop surfers swiping holiday packages from unsuspecting residents. The cops in one New Jersey city are trying to catch the thieves with some trickery of their own. Police in Jersey City, across the Hudson River from New York, are teaming up with Amazon to install doorbell cameras and plant dummy boxes with GPS tracking devices at homes around the city. They didn’t have to wait long Tuesday for someone to take the bait. “We had a box out on the street for three minutes before it was taken,” said…

GE Slumps To Ominous $6.66…

GE stocks plunged once again to its ominous closing low from March 2009 of $6.66… The GE share price is now unchanged since October 1992… The company announced Monday that it added Paula Rosput Reynolds, former restructuring chief of AIG, to its board of directors to bolster turnaround efforts. The change is the latest move by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Larry Culp, who took the helm in October, to pull GE out of one of the worst crises in its 126-year history. And we note that the broad market bottomed to the tick when GE hit $6.66… This article…

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. This quake was one of the…

Doesn’t Matter, Hillary is UNTOUCHABLE: Three Clinton Foundation Whistleblowers To Testify About Tax Fraud, Pay-For-Play

Don’t get your hopes up…nothing will ever happen to Bill and Killary… Following allegations of sloppy accounting, potential tax fraud and pay-to-play, the Clinton Foundation will be under a Congressional microscope this week after three whistleblowers have come forward and agreed to testify – one of whom secretly submitted 6,000 pages of documents to the IRS and FBI in August of 2017, and all three of whom have submitted various documents to Congressional investigators. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, told Fox News‘s Martha MacCallum on Monday night that there are three whistleblowers who have spent the…

When Not Hiding Cameras In Traffic Barrels And Streetlights, The DEA Is Shoving Them Into… Vacuums?

If it exists, the DEA probably wants to stash a camera in it. A Denair, California-based company called the Special Services Group, LLC won a $42,595 DEA purchase order at the end of November for a “custom Shop Vac concealment with Canon M50B.” Canon describes the M50B as a “high-sensitivity…PTZ [Pan-Tilt-Zoom] network camera” that “captures video with remarkable color and clarity, even in very low-light environments.” The M50B retails for about $3,400; the acquisition is being funded by the DEA’s Office of Investigative Technology and is presumably intended to assist agents in a specific operation, rather than for wider, passive…

Small Massachusetts town decides to spend $1.4m building its own fiber, rather than paying Comcast $500K for shitty broadband

Comcast offered to get internet service to (96% of) the good people of Charlemont, Mass in exchange for a $462,123 subsidy; instead, the town of 1300 voted to reject the offer and spend $1.4M to build their own super-fast fiber network. The town will charge $79/month for symmetrical gigabit access with no data-caps, and people can add phone and TV service for an extra payment. If enough townspeople sign up, there will be no extra taxes levied for the network rollout as they will be able to cover the whole costs through subscription fees. Go Charlemont! Today, you are the…

Kentucky Court Upholds License Plate Scan Traffic Stops…

The use of license plate cameras linked to insurance records is known to produce a number of false positives. Nonetheless, the Kentucky Court of Appeals on Friday declared such systems were good enough to for police to use as justification to stop a motorist. Roy Lee Lynem told a court that the real reason that Lexington Police Officer Todd Hart and Recruit Officer Head stopped him was that they did not like the way he looked. Lynem is a large black man with facial tattoos and blond-dyed dreadlocks. The officers spotted him as he was leaving the Speedway gas station…

Bomb threat triggers evacuation at Facebook…

A bomb threat has forced the evacuation of at least one building at Facebook’s Menlo Park office campus. The San Mateo bomb squad has been deployed to the scene and authorities have called on the public to avoid the 200 block of Jefferson Drive, where the offices housing Facebook and Instagram are located. They were tipped off by an anonymous phone call to New York City Crime Stoppers, according to ABC. #UPDATE: Tip about threat to Facebook campus came from NYPD’s Crimestopper Unit, which in turn notified Menlo Park Police.

China Is Data Mining DIRECTLY FROM THE BRAINS of Workers

China is deploying emotional surveillance technology that mines data from the minds of its citizens. Essentially, they’re data mining by reading their brains. The light-weight sensory helmets have been rolled out on an industrial scale. The mind data-mining and emotional surveillance programs are eerily similar to trends in the United States to monitor and probe the mental health of its citizens through facial recognition. This past spring, Facebook landed in hot water over a data leak which felt like a major privacy violation to millions of its users. But China was taking data mining to the next level. Around the…

Vatican No. 3 Cardinal George Pell Convicted on Charges He Sexually Abused Choir Boy…The highest-ranking Catholic Church official to face such criminal chargess

The Vatican’s third-most powerful official has been convicted in Australia on all charges he sexually abused two choir boys there in the late ’90s, according to two sources with knowledge of the case. A unanimous jury returned its verdict for Cardinal George Pell on Tuesday (Australian time) after more than three days of deliberations, the sources said, in a trial conducted under a gag order by the judge that prevented any details of the trial being made public. Pell, the Vatican’s finance chief and the highest Vatican official to ever go on trial for sex abuse, left Rome in June…

Powerful foods that eliminate intestinal parasites

Your body can be a host to parasites, most of which exist even without your knowledge. Among the body parts you can find them most commonly in are your intestines. Although most of them are small, these intestinal parasites can wreak havoc on your health. Fortunately, there are foods you can eat that contain powerful, anti-parasite ingredients. Most of the parasites in your body seek the nutrients you consume. They, therefore, compete with your own nutritional needs and can cause nutrient malabsorption. Some parasites hunger for your blood – their presence can give a deficiency in both iron and protein.…

Very high levels of HDL (good cholesterol) can increase your risk of heart attack and death, concludes study

For a long time, people have been told that foods rich in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) are healthy. It turns out, getting too much HDL can be a bad thing, even if it’s called the “good cholesterol,” according to a study presented at the  European Society of Cardiology Congress. The research, led by a team from the Emory University School of Medicine, revealed that people with extremely high levels of good cholesterol have an increased risk of heart attack and death. HDL is generally good for the body since it moves bad cholesterol from the blood vessels to the liver so that it can be broken…

ARREST Google CEO Sundar Pichai for lying to Congress

We’re constantly reminded by the left-wing media’s coverage of the Robert Mueller fiasco that “lying to the government is a crime.” In fact, Robert Mueller, utterly unable to find any real evidence linking Trump to Russia, has resorted to charging people with “lying to the government.” The same government that constantly lies to us will prosecute you for lying to it. But you’re only prosecuted for lying if you’re a political target of the deep state regime in power. And that’s why Google CEO Sundar Pichai spent most of his day outright lying to the United States Congress today, with…

Federal judge rules Mass. law prohibiting secret audio recording of police, government officials is unconstitutional

A federal court judge Monday ruled a Massachusetts General Law prohibiting the secret audio recording of police or government officials is unconstitutional. Chief United States District Judge Patti B. Saris made the ruling on two similar cases — one involving two Jamaica Plain residents who frequently record police officers and a second case involving Project Veritas, the undercover organization founded by conservative political activist James O’Keefe. Both cases involved defendants who had not secretly recorded police but claimed that the Suffolk District Attorney’s office and the Boston Police Department were interpreting state law in such a way that was preventing…

Trump: “I’m proud to shut down the government” over border wall

Prior to his meeting with Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, President Trump brought reporters into the Oval Office and — in an extended, heated exchange before the cameras — clashed with the two Democratic leaders over congressional support for funding for his border wall, declaring that he is “proud to shut down the government for border security.” Why it matters: The president taking ownership of any potential government shutdown hinders Republicans’ ability to pin the blame on Democrats, while also giving a glimpse into what Trump’s negotiating style with a Democrat-controlled House may look like over the next…

Profound Threat: Americans are being urged prepare for the up to six months without electricity, transportation, fuel, money, and healthcare….

In a new report that warns that the electric grid is the “prime target” of terrorists, Americans are being urged prepare for the up to six months without electricity, transportation, fuel, money, and healthcare. “People no longer keep enough essentials within their homes, reducing their ability to sustain themselves during an extended, prolonged outage. We need to improve individual preparedness,” said a just-published report to President Trump. “There needs to be more individual accountability for preparedness,” adds the report, “Surviving a Catastrophic Power Outage,” from the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council and published by the Department of Homeland Security. t…

Whats going on in Detroit? 300 fetuses and infants found in leaky plastic containers at Detroit cemetery

Investigators say they’ve discovered the remains of 300 fetuses and infants stored in leaky plastic containers at a cemetery in suburban Detroit. The state disclosed more details Tuesday from an inspection last week at Knollwood Memorial Park in Canton Township. Regulators say the cemetery is barred from any new business while the case is pending. The suspension comes five days after regulators said they discovered 27 plastic containers and took other enforcement steps. Most of the remains came from Perry Funeral Home in Detroit whose license was suspended weeks ago. CONTINUE @ WNDU

DuPont Has Spread Its Pollution Around the World….Now It Wants to Filter Your Contaminated Drinking Water.

DuPont opened a factory in Saudi Arabia last week that will produce reverse osmosis water filters. The filters use ultra-thin membranes to remove water impurities, including PFAS — chemicals made and used by DuPont that have caused widespread water contamination around the world. Reverse osmosis is one of the technologies that the Environmental Protection Agency recommends for reducing water contamination from PFAS chemicals, which are associated with cancers, immune dysfunction, reproductive issues, and other health problems. According to the agency’s website, reverse osmosis “membranes are typically more than 90 percent effective at removing a wide range of PFAS, including shorter…

Russia has started transferring Tu-160 strategic bombers, which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons, to Venezuela

Russia has started transferring Tu-160 strategic bombers, which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons, to Venezuela. “This will be the seventh “sortie” by Russian strategic aircraft in the last three months – the frequency of flights is increasing, and this is perceived by the US as provocation,” says Mark Schneider, a former Pentagon official. At the end of October, Tu-160 bombers were spotted on the Norwegian border. British and Norwegian fighters were scrambled to intercept them. In August, they were spotted flying across the North Pole, which is “very unusual”, and indicates that a potential target of the training flights…

Global Cleaning Giant to Get Rid of 100,000 Jobs

ISS A/S of Denmark, which is one of the world’s largest private employers, is planning to get rid of about 100,000 jobs as it exits 13 countries that were among its least profitable markets. The move represents about a fifth of the company’s global workforce. Shareholders will get at least a quarter of as much as 2.5 billion kroner ($383 million) in anticipated net proceeds, Chief Executive Officer Jeff Gravenhorst said by phone on Monday. The countries ISS plans to leave are mostly in emerging markets, including Asia and Eastern Europe. At the same time, the company wants to do…

Performance Bicycle retail stores nationwide are closing down, including the one in Boulder at 2450 Arapahoe Ave. A news release from Boston-based Gordon Brothers, a company hired to liquidate Performance Bicycle’s inventory, announced the closure of 102 stores. Colorado has seven locations. The store’s parent company, Advanced Sports Enterprises, Inc., filed for voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November to reorganize for long-term profitability. Discounts are being offered on store inventories. Because of the pending closure, all sales are final and free in-store assembly is no longer being offered, according to a post on the company’s website. The layaway program also…

Newly-Released MKUltra Docs: The CIA Made Remote-Controlled Dogs With Brain Surgery

The Central Intelligence Agency made six remote-controlled dogs as a part of their MKULTRA “behavior modification” or mind control program.  Using brain surgery, newly requested documents show that the dogs were “field operational” and controlled by human beings. The CIA marked the 65th anniversary of the launch of Project MKULTRA. And the public is finally getting a more broad and detailed look at just how far those attempting these gruesome experiments were willing to go in order to gain control of our thoughts. The documents were provided under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by  The Black Vault founder, John Greenewald. According to a report…

The Rise And Fall Of Netflix: Here Are 5 Reasons Why Netflix Stock Is Crashing As The Company Heads For Oblivion

Netflix originally had a truly disruptive business model and they fundamentally changed the way that Americans consume media, but now they are heading for the same fate as Blockbuster.  For years, Netflix was really the only game in town, but now content costs are spiraling out of control and new competitors with even deeper pockets threaten to become the dominant players in the industry.  Of course Netflix is not going to die overnight, but the writing is on the wall.  In fact, Netflix stock has already been crashing over the last several months as investors have begun to realize that…

Since nobody else wants them, Facebook is buying back its own shares by the billions

Facebook’s board of directors approved a plan this week to buy back an extra $9 billion of the company’s stock. This is on top of a $15 billion share repurchase program launched last year. This chart pretty much sums up the renewed push to prop up the company’s stock price: The social media giant’s shares have fallen nearly 40% since late July, hit by a steady stream of bad news that includes, but is not limited to, failing to act against Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 US presidential election; letting the site play a role in stoking ethnic and religious violence in several countries, including Myanmar;…

‘Miracle’ Excavation of ‘Little Foot’ Skeleton Reveals Mysterious Human Relative

Following an epic 20-year-long excavation in South Africa, researchers have finally recovered and cleaned the nearly-complete skeleton of an ancient human relative: an approximately 3.67-million-year-old hominin nicknamed Little Foot. Little Foot is likely a previously unknown species, the researchers said. In four newly posted studies — all available on bioRxiv, meaning they are not yet published in a peer-reviewed journal — the researchers delved into Little Foot’s anatomy. Their findings reveal that Little Foot likely walked upright on two feet and probably had an nearly lifelong injury on her left arm. The successful two-decade-long excavation of Little Foot was “almost…

Biometric screening is expanding to the rental car industry….

Hertz said Tuesday it is teaming up with Clear, the maker of biometric screening kiosks found at many airports, in an effort to slash the time it takes to pick up a rental car. Clear hopes it will lead more travelers to its platform, which has 3 million members in the U.S. It’s the latest place consumers will find biometric technology, which has migrated over the last 50 years from secure government facilities and banks to airports, stadiums and even smartphones that unlock with the touch a fingerprint. Hertz is the first rental car company to use the technology. Improvements…

Google Employees Sought To Block Breitbart From Ads, Emails Show

Google employees sought to block Breitbart from Google AdSense less than one month after President Donald Trump took office, leaked emails from the company reveal. Google employees sought to use alleged “hate speech” as a pretense for banning Breitbart from taking part in the advertising program, the emails show. Barring Breitbart from the advertising program would have a devastating effect on the site’s ad revenue as Google accounts for roughly 37 percent of all digital advertising revenue. (RELATED: Top Ad Writer Behind Boycott Campaign Targeting Breitbart, Ingraham) Breitbart obtained the emails and published them Monday night, one day before Google CEO…

Syndicated columnist censored for writing about the risks of Wall Street and billionaires buying the media

Jim Hightower is a longstanding, respected columnist distributed by Creators Syndicate — but Creators refused to distribute his latest column, “Free the Free Press from Wall Street Plunderers,” which warns about Wall Street vultures like Digital First Media and GateHouse Media buying up newspapers, including the Austin Statesman. The Austin Chronicle reports that Creators wouldn’t distribute the column because it feared retribution from the Wall Street firms; Creators managing editor Simone Slykhous told the Chronicle that “We have more than 200 columnists and cartoonists, and our job is to make sure that our actions do not negatively impact them.” Thankfully,…

Macron Announces Wage Hikes, Tax Cuts Amid “Economic, Social State Of Emergency”

In his first public comments in more than a week, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that his administration will show “no mercy” towards “Yellow Vest” protesters who have committed violence over the last four weeks of demonstrations across the country, while also announcing a series of economic measures in an attempt to restore calm. “When violence is unleashed, freedom ends,” said Macron – while acknowledging that there is a “deep anger” at the French government that is justified – yet which should not devolve into violence. Macron added that he shares some responsibility for the situation – which…

Microwaving your food is one of the most damaging things you can do to reduce nutrition

There are probably worse ways to ruin the nutritional value of food and, indirectly, your health. But a Green Med Info article warned that there is no faster way to destroy the nutrients in your food than to pop it into a microwave oven. The days of cooking fresh, whole foods on the stove or in the oven seem to be long past. Now, you just pop prepared food into the microwave oven and wait for a few minutes at most. But microwaving doesn’t just heat the food. It also alters the flavor and the texture, turning food rubbery and…

Customs officers searching more mobile phones and computers

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers are searching the electronic devices of travelers more often, and did not always follow proper protocol, a new watchdog report has found. The report made public Monday found there were 29,000 devices searched at a port of entry out of 397 million travelers to the U.S. in budget year 2017, up from 18,400 the year before from 390 million travelers. Customs and Border Protection officials note it is less than 1 percent of all travelers. Officers are allowed under law to look through devices of travelers who are referred for a secondary inspection. During…

Ecosystem below Earth TWICE size of world’s oceans…

The Earth is far more alive than previously thought, according to “deep life” studies that reveal a rich ecosystem beneath our feet that is almost twice the size of that found in all the world’s oceans. Despite extreme heat, no light, minuscule nutrition and intense pressure, scientists estimate this subterranean biosphere is teeming with between 15bn and 23bn tonnes of micro-organisms, hundreds of times the combined weight of every human on the planet. Researchers at the Deep Carbon Observatory say the diversity of underworld species bears comparison to the Amazon or the Galápagos Islands, but unlike those places the environment…

Big Brother app reports your location over 14,000 times a day

The millions of dots on the map trace highways, side streets and bike trails — each one following the path of an anonymous cellphone user. One path tracks someone from a home outside Newark, New Jersey, to a nearby Planned Parenthood. Another represents a person who travels with New York’s mayor during the day and returns to Long Island at night. Yet another leaves a house in upstate New York at 7am and travels to a middle school 14 miles away, staying until late afternoon each school day. Only one person makes that trip: Lisa Magrin, 46, a math teacher.…

AT&T Finds Yet Another Way To Nickel-And-Dime Its Broadband, TV Customers

While AT&T’s marketing wing often likes to pat itself on the back for “innovation,” the company’s real skill set revolves around finding creative and ways to nickel-and-dime its own customers. Like the multiple times the company was caught aiding drug dealing directory assistance scammers, IP Relay credit card scammers, or crammers because it was getting a cut of the profits. Or the time the company started charging everybody more money for broadband if they wanted to protect their own personal privacy. Or the company’s well-documented net neutrality shenanigans.

Baltimore spending $1.4M to replace police department guns that could accidentally misfire or fail

Baltimore County is spending more than $1.4 million to replace pistols used by county police that may have a tendency to accidentally misfire — or not fire at all. The county awarded a no-bid contract to replace more than 2,000 FNS-40 pistols used by its police officers, sheriff’s deputies and correctional officers with weapons made by Glock. The move came after mounting concerns about the pistols’ safety. “The department understands that officers lost confidence in carrying this service weapon, so there was an immediate need to explore a new service weapon that our officers will have confidence carrying,” said Cpl.…

Generic drug price-fixing investigation expands to 300 drugs and 16 companies

Executives at more than a dozen generic-drug companies had a form of shorthand to describe how they conducted business, insider lingo worked out over steak dinners, cocktail receptions and rounds of golf. The “sandbox,” according to investigators, was the market for generic prescription drugs, where everyone was expected to play nice. “Fair share” described dividing up the sales pie to ensure that each company reaped continued profits. “Trashing the market” was used when a competitor ignored these unwritten rules and sold drugs for less than agreed-upon prices. The terminology reflected more than just the clubbiness of a powerful industry, according…

People Are Months Away from Living in 3D Printed Homes

Speed has never been a quality associated with building a home, but that may be changing. Eindhoven University of Technology plans to build five 3D-printed houses in the new residential district of Bosrijk. The endeavor, known as Project Milestone, was initially announced during Dutch Design Week in 2016 as a partnership between the University and Municipality of Eindhoven and is billed as the world’s first commercial housing project using 3D-concrete printing. Among the collaborators that have come on board since then is the local firm Houben / Van Mierlo Architects, which created the organic-inspired design. While concrete tends to be…

Google has found another bug in its Google+ social network that it says affects as many as 52.5 million users

Google has found another bug in its Google+ social network that it says affects as many as 52.5 million users. It said the flaw allowed “name, email address, occupation, and age” to be exposed to third-party developers, even if accounts had been set to private. The bug, discovered “recently”, was introduced to the network in November. In October, Google decided to close Google+ to the public after finding data on 500,000 of its users had been exposed. As a result of this latest find, it said, the closedown had been brought forward. “With the discovery of this new bug, we…

YouTube Kicks off Proud Boys Founder Gavin McInnes

Far-right commentator and Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes has been kicked off YouTube on Monday, marking the latest social media platform to remove the Proud Boys founder. According to a banner on his page, McInnes’ channel was “terminated” after the Google-owned video giant “received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement.” Google did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for details on the content McInnes was inappropriately using. The move wipes out more than 200,000 subscribers for McInnes and removed the last major platform for reaching his audience, after Twitter, Facebook and Instagram removed him in recent months. “I have a swarm…

Jerome Corsi sues Mueller, Justice, CIA, FBI, NSA for $350 million….The suit accuses the special counsel of blackmailing him to lie as part of a “legal coup d’etat” against President Donald Trump

The conservative writer and conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi filed a lawsuit on Sunday accusing special counsel Robert Mueller of blackmailing him to lie about President Donald Trump in the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The suit, which seeks $350 million in actual and punitive damages in U.S. District Court in Washington, was filed six days after Corsi entered a formal complaint with the Justice Department alleging prosecutorial misconduct by Mueller. Corsi, 72, the former Washington bureau chief of the conspiracy website InfoWars, accuses Mueller’s office of having illegally leaked secret information from the grand jury investigating Russian…

Over a million people DIE from chemotherapy every year, but only 750,000 pass away from cancer – what’s WRONG with this picture?

Chemical warfare on humanity was launched nearly a century ago by the American Medical Association when they eliminated nutrition classes from medical colleges and approval-stamped any chemical medication that came down the pike as the drug of choice for whatever ailment any doctor chose to manage for their “patients for life.” Then came processed foods, vaccines, chemotherapy, and GMOs to fuel the fire of preventable disease epidemics in America. Pay if forward to 2001 – 2018, and we’ve seen nearly 19 million deaths from chemotherapy, not cancer, when only roughly 750,000 Americans are dying from cancer itself each year. The…
