Washington Confirms Link Between Roundup and 40 Percent Cancer Risk Reader 02/17/2019 (Sun) 15:37:25 Id: 0c8cad [Preview] No. 14025 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

A new large-scale study has found that exposure to the chemical glyphosate – the main ingredient in week-killer Roundup – increases the risk of getting cancer by over 40 percent.

According to researchers at the University of Washington, a meta-analysis of studies published between 2001 and 2018 found that glyphosate may have led to the cancers of millions of people.

Yahoo News reports: https://archive.fo/zBB1y

The findings, published in the online journal Mutation Research/Reviews in Mutation Research, suggested that the link between glyphosate and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is stronger than previously reported, with exposure to chemical linked with a 41 percent increased risk of developing the disease.


“Our analysis focused on providing the best possible answer to the question of whether or not glyphosate is carcinogenic,” added senior author Lianne Sheppard. “As a result of this research, I am even more convinced that it is.”

The team noted that previous reviews have produced mixed results about whether glyphosate is linked to an increased risk of cancer in humans.

However, they also added that the findings are consistent with results found in previous meta-analyses, with co-author Rachel Shaffer commenting that, “This research provides the most up-to-date analysis of glyphosate and its link with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, incorporating a 2018 study of more than 54,000 people who work as licensed pesticide applicators.”

Govt Subsidized Amazon Wants To Control Electronics Inside Our Homes To SPY On US Reader 02/16/2019 (Sat) 20:08:23 Id: ba68d5 [Preview] No. 14018 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Amazon acquired another startup this week, the maker of the tech product Eero, a mesh router that improves dead Wi-Fi spots in the home. To that, you might have said, fuck them they can fuck off!

Sure, it's just another purchase by the world's largest online retailer. But, more importantly, it's an indication of how Amazon wants to go further than just making our homes "smart." In reality, spy beacons to steal personal data and sell it to other corporations and allowing government access into our lives.

Think about it for a minute.

Your guests are greeted at the door with a camera spybell from Ring, a company Amazon bought in 2018. They enter a living room where an Amazon Echo speaker as it records voices.

Then they head to the kitchen, where an Amazon microwave fries your brain with WiFi frequencies bought at Amazon-owned Whole Foods, naturally, as you guzzle down toxic soda and GMO waste, as the Amazon Fire TV Edition television records all the footage to sell to third parties, with hackers and spooks snooping in.

You ask Alexa to dim the 'smart' lights, and suddenly the lights start to flicker. Don't worry, those are just hackers playing pranks on you.

And the Wi-Fi, the guts of the system, without which none of the other products could operate, is being controlled by the latest device bought by Amazon, the Eero.

Are you comfortable with Amazon controlling so much of your home? On Twitter, some weren't this week.

"Terrible news," @RickWilliams wrote in a tweet. "I liked that they (Eero) seemed privacy conscious and were very responsive. Now they are going to be owned by one of the biggest data suckers out there. Scares me a bit."

BBC Producer's Syria Bombshell: Douma "Gas Attack" Footage Was Staged Reader Board owner 02/15/2019 (Fri) 08:51:01 Id: bb6082 [Preview] No. 13989 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
"Now approaching nearly a year after the April 7, 2018 alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria — which the White House used as a pretext to bomb Syrian government facilities and bases throughout Damascus — a BBC reporter who investigated the incident on the ground has issued public statements saying the "Assad sarin attack" on Douma was indeed "staged". Riam Dalati is a well-known BBC Syria producer who has long reported from the region. He shocked his nearly 20,000 twitter followers on Wednesday, which includes other mainstream journalists from major outlets, by stating that after a "six month investigation" he has concluded, "I can prove without a doubt that the Douma Hospital scene was staged."

"The "hospital scene" is a reference to part of the horrid footage played over and over again on international networks showing children in a Douma hospital being hosed off and treated by doctors and White Helmets personnel as victims of the alleged chemical attack. The BBC's Dalati stated on Wednesday: "After almost 6 months of investigations, I can prove without a doubt that the Douma Hospital scene was staged. No fatalities occurred in the hospital." He noted he had interviewed a number of White Helmets and opposition activists while reaching that conclusion."

"Tragic and gruesome images of what appeared the "gassed" corpses of young children and women strewn about an apartment building, were recycled endlessly in mainstream media at the time, which the Trump administration referenced in its decision to strike Damascus with some 100 Tomahawk cruise missiles. Russia is now demanding that the BBC produce the results of its investigation for Moscow to review and evaluate. The BBC's Dalati made the statements in response to a lengthy investigative report by James Harkin writing for The Intercept. Harkin had examined the scenes and physical environs of the alleged Douma attack and interviewed eyewitnesses on site. His report paints a complex picture of propaganda and deeply compromised rebel sources such as Saudi-backed Jaish al Islam, which had control of Douma amidst a Syrian government onslaught to retake the town."

"The Intercept report also highlighted the fact that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons investigation flatly contradicted Washington's claims that sarin had been used. Instead, "samples collected at both locations turned up 'various chlorinated organic chemicals' along with 'the residues of explosive' — not quite the same thing as saying that chlorine had been used as a chemical weapon..." according to the report. Interestingly, the BBC's Dalati had actually first hinted he knew that elements surrounding the Douma attack had been staged a mere days after the incident. In a now deleted April 11, 2018 tweet, he had stated: "Sick and tired of activists and rebels using corpses of dead children to stage emotive scenes for Western consumption. Then they wonder why some serious journos are questioning part of the narrative." - Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge reports

Good! US Jury Convicts Mexican Drug Lord, Gets Life Behind Bars Reader 02/12/2019 (Tue) 20:28:04 Id: ab516a [Preview] No. 13968 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera, the infamous Mexican drug lord who escaped twice from maximum-security prisons, was convicted by a U.S. jury of 10 criminal counts in connection with his narcotics empire, a victory for drug-enforcement authorities who had pursued him relentlessly for more than two decades.

Mr. Guzmán, 61 years old, is now expected to spend the rest of his life in a U.S. prison without possibility of parole. As part of the verdict, he was found guilty of leading the Sinaloa cartel in a “continuing criminal enterprise,” which carries a mandatory life sentence. The U.S. promised Mexico it wouldn’t seek the death penalty against him.

“It is a sentence from which there is no escape and no return,” said Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue, calling the verdict a victory for “every family who’s lost a loved one to the black hole of addiction.”

Jurors reached the verdict on the sixth day of deliberations.

They determined the government had proven Mr. Guzmán committed a range of federal crimes across nearly 30 years, including smuggling massive quantities of illegal drugs into the U.S. and conspiring to murder dozens of cartel enemies. Prosecutors have called the Sinaloa cartel the largest drug-trafficking organization in the world.

The judge commended the jurors for their attention to detail in what he called a complicated case. “The way you went about it was really quite remarkable,” he said, adding it made him “proud to be an American.”

Mr. Guzmán’s lawyers said they planned to appeal the verdict, saying they “fought like hell” in the face of overwhelming evidence.

Drinking Diet Soda Increases Risks of Heart Attacks, Strokes Reader 02/15/2019 (Fri) 14:27:28 Id: 14b044 [Preview] No. 13991 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Drinking Diet Coke everyday increases your risk of dying young, experts have warned.

Two or more artificially-sweetened drinks a day ups the risk of stroke by a quarter and heart disease by a third, new findings show.

And compared with people who never touch them, the risk of early death is 16 per cent higher for diet drink guzzlers.

Scientists warned their findings should serve as a warning to those on diets.

Dr Yasmin Mossavar-Rahmani, lead author of the study at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York said: "Many well-meaning people, especially those who are overweight or obese, drink low-calorie sweetened drinks to cut calories in their diet.

"Our research and other observational studies have shown that artificially sweetened beverages may not be harmless and high consumption is associated with a higher risk of stroke and heart disease."

Heart disease is where the blood vessels that supply the heart with blood narrow, increases the risk of a heart attack, angina and stroke.

VP Pence Berates EU For Dumping US Dollar (SWIFT) Transactions, Demands War With Iran Reader 02/15/2019 (Fri) 14:29:35 Id: 8a7912 [Preview] No. 13993 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Speaking at the US-sponsored Warsaw summit on the Middle East, Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday railed against European efforts to circumvent American sanctions on Iran, and crucially as Bloomberg concludes, his speech confirms the "US and its oldest allies across the Atlantic are becoming estranged."

He slammed European efforts to "break American sanctions against Iran’s murderous revolutionary regime" — a theme also repeated by Pompeo and Israeli PM Netanyahu on the same day.

Pence specifically reprimanded the UK, France, and Germany for launching a so-called "SWIFT alternative" or special purpose vehicle to allow non-dollar trade with Tehran and to facilitate humanitarian goods-related transactions, called INSTEX — or "Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges". Europe sees it as a crucial step in keeping the 2015 nuclear deal alive after Washington was able to pressure the Belgium-based SWIFT financial messaging service to cut off the access of Iranian banks last year.

“They call this scheme a ‘Special Purpose Vehicle’,” Pence said, as cited by Bloomberg. “We call it an effort to break American sanctions against Iran’s murderous revolutionary regime.’’ The Paris-based INSTEX initiative represents the most concrete action Europe has taken to directly thwart Washington sanctions.

“We call it an ill-advised step that will only strengthen Iran, weaken the EU and create still more distance between Europe and America,’’ Pence said.

Pence further urged the Europeans to break completely with the Iran deal: “For the sake of peace, security, stability, and human rights in the Middle East, the time has come for our European partners to stand with us, stand with the Iranian people, stand with our allies and friends in the region — and we reject the Iran nuclear deal,” he said.

Pence also met with Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, and the two agreed that Iran is "the leading state sponsor of terror in the world."

I'm not seeing anything addressing boycotting Israel in that bill made law. You're talking about the "Israel Anti-Boycott Act", which makes it illegal to participate in political boycotts of Israeli products. What you do as far as personal consumer choice, that hasn't been affected yet. The way this is going, it probably will. Our taxes already go towards Israel with $38 billion. I can see the future being: they'll stock only Israeli products, eventually everyone unable to buy or sell unless they have the mark of the beast. Because the ZOGempire won't stop here.

Bad! Government Spending Spree, Debt Insolvency Worse Than Under Bush, Obama Regimes Reader 02/15/2019 (Fri) 17:48:10 Id: e4a58a [Preview] No. 14004 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
BE PREPARED: https://archive.fo/elYwR

We’re now $22 trillion in debt, yet despite all that red ink, the Mexican cartels have control of our border and we’re not one bit closer to spending money on our own security. We’ve gone into deep debt for everything except the core function of the federal government.

It feels like it was yesterday when I was watching the news as a kid with my parents in 1995, listening to Newt Gingrich, during the infamous shutdown fight, warn about the dire consequences of crossing the $5 trillion debt milestone. It feels like it was yesterday when I was writing press releases for candidates in “the year of the Tea Party” on how Obama and the Pelosi Congress took the debt to $14 trillion in such a short period of time. Now, over eight years into varying degrees of GOP control of Congress and the White House, we have crossed the $22 trillion mark, expanding the debt more rapidly than at any time in our history. Whereas the debt exploded by $5 trillion during Bush’s eight-year tenure, a shocking figure at the time, it has now increased $8 trillion just since Republicans controlled the House in 2011 and by $4 trillion over the past four years, since they controlled at least two of the three political organs of government.

Now, the only question Republicans have is how many pennies of border security they will fight for, while refusing to challenge any of the nonessential and even harmful programs of the federal government. The GOP platform on debt and spending is a lie from top to bottom, as Republicans plan to pass more budget bills allowing us to blow through the budget caps without any effort to systemically reform the way we budget.

Now that Republicans are planning to cave on border funding, can they at least force a confrontation with Democrats over spending levels for functions of government that are nowhere near as important as border security? Thus, departments like HUD, which were able to completely shut down for a month with nobody noticing, will continue to enjoy record spending. We will continue to provide security for Kabul and Baghdad with the beefed-up military budget since last year’s budget deal, but no funding for our border or meaningful use of the military to protect our own sovereignty from the daily incursions by the most brutal cartels on earth.

Why even have a Republican Party any more?

Even more indefensible, unlike during the end of Bush’s years and the beginning of Obama’s tenure, when we first began accruing trillion-dollar annual deficits, we are not facing a deep recession. In fact, we are enjoying the most robust period of job growth since the late 1990s, and revenue is at a record high baseline.

Let it be known for all of time that dire predictions of revenue slumping as a result of the tax cuts were fake news. The entirety of the current deficit problem is due to increased spending. According to the latest monthly report released by the Treasury Department yesterday, spending was up 9.6 percent for the first three months of fiscal year 2019 relative to the first three months of FY 2018. What about revenues? They actually rose slightly by 0.2 percent, despite some declines in certain revenue categories. This is an important statistic, because it is the first clean metric we have comparing a period of time with the tax cuts in full implementation to a period before the tax cuts.

Moreover, some of the increased tax revenue from more payroll taxes likely would not have occurred without the job creation spawned by the tax cuts. If you isolate the revenue tallies for individual and corporate taxes, the government obviously did lose some revenue in certain categories, but it was made up by a $15 billion increase in payroll tax revenue (FICA, Social Security taxes), in addition to increased revenue from excise taxes.

Thus, this bipartisan era of debt is worse than anything we’ve seen this generation, and it is all happening with record revenue and a booming economy – with no world war consuming our economy and budget.

The United States is heading towards complete collapse and third world debt insolvency.

The United States is already largely a third world country. The reckoning will come when the debt bubbles burst all over the place, as more and more countries abandon the US dollar for trade.

Hyperinflation is now inevitable, there will be no escaping third world poverty at this point. Prepare for collapse and brutal civil war. If they come for your guns, just die fighting. It is better to be dead than a slave.

Good! Trump Declares National Emergency To Pay For Border Wall Reader 02/15/2019 (Fri) 17:12:44 Id: e65b0b [Preview] No. 14001 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

As previewed last night, in a national address, Trump said would declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and build $8 billion in barriers on the border, a critical step toward his long-desired wall along the southern border. Trump's move, announced in an improvised address from the Rose Garden, will launch a fierce constitutional battle in the courts with lawmakers and outside groups opposed to his decision.

“I am going to be signing a national emergency,” Trump said after a long introduction to his remarks that touched on trade, China and the caravans of immigrants that Trump made a political issue of ahead of last fall's midterm elections.

“It’s a great thing to do because we have an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs, invasion of people,” the president said in seeking to justify the need for an emergency declaration.

"People that should have stepped up did not step up... It would have been easy," Trump said of the national emergency to fund the border wall, saying it would have been "great to have done it earlier."

Trump is separately set to sign legislation approved by Congress that funds the government and prevents a new shutdown set to begin on Saturday. But that legislation fell far short of his demands for $5.7 billion in wall funding.

Trump will redirect $3.6 billion in military construction funding toward the border project, and will also take separate executive action repurposing about $2.5 billion from the Defense Department’s drug-interdiction program and $600 million from the Treasury Department’s asset-forfeiture fund. Officials said the goal is to ultimately build roughly 234 miles of barriers along the border, including bollard-style wall.

Here’s how the $8B for border barrier/wall/fencing breaks down:

Sex Robots Will Upgraded With Government Backdoors and Spyware Reader 02/15/2019 (Fri) 14:32:42 Id: 7af0a7 [Preview] No. 13996 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
From the Drudge Report to The New York Times, sex robots are rapidly being shilled to the mindless masses.

Behind the headlines, a number of companies are currently developing robots designed to provide humans with companionship and sexual pleasure – with a few already on the market.

Unlike sex toys and dolls, which are typically sold in off-the-radar shops and hidden in closets, sexbots may become mainstream. A 2017 survey suggested almost half of Americans think that having sex with robots will become a common practice within 50 years.

And a question almost entirely overlooked is how the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission should regulate the hazards associated with sex robots. Existing sex products are not well regulated, and this is cause for concern given the multitude of ways in which sex robots could be harmful to their users.

For example, dangers lurk even in a seemingly innocent scene where a sex robot and human hold hands and kiss. What if the sexbots’ lips were manufactured with lead paint or some other toxin? And what if the robot, with the strength of five humans, accidentally crushes the human’s finger in a display of passion?

Governments are now trying to regulate sex robots and it is only a matter of time before they mandate forced GPS tracking, along with hidden WiFi cameras and microphones with these sexbots. One could only imagine how big tech would profit from all the personal data stolen and sold as well.

But, goyim will be goyim.
