“If the market shut down for 10 years, what investment would you
dare to hold—other than gold?”—Alfred Adask
by Alfred Adask
“The trend is your friend” is an investment cliché that’s both absolutely true and absolutely confusing because, while we can easily say what the trend “was” at some distinct period in the past, we can never be absolutely sure what the “trend” is right now.
That’s because a general trend is a kind of vector that results from the combination several (or even innumerable) other, smaller, ever-changing vectors moving in different directions and with different degrees of force.
Imagine a ship at sea. The ship is heading due south at 15 knots, powered by its engine. But the wind is blowing due East at 10 knots, and the current is moving nor’west at 3 knots. The ship’s actual course and speed (the ship’s “trend”) will be the result of all combining the three “vectors” of ship’s engine, rudder direction, wind speed and direction, and the force of the current. By the time we compute all of those factors, the ship that’s headed due south at 15 knots may be actually moving sou-southwest at 12 knots.
The “trend” is the result of combining a number of underlying and often contradictory factors.
So long as we know the general trend, we can steer the ship appropriately to reach our destination. But if we don’t know the trend at any given moment, we may be in danger since we don’t know where we’re actually headed and we can’t reliably control our destination. I.e., we could steer our ship due south, and still wind up traveling south-southwest.
The principle of “trend” applies to navigating investments as well as ships. If we can identify fundamental trends, we can invest our wealth in ways that minimize our expenditures and maximize our gains.
For example, when the trend for the stock market is down, if you invest in stocks you’ll probably lose some of your investment.
But not necessarily. Given that the “trend” of the Dow is composed of 30 smaller “vectors” (individual stocks) and some of those stocks are going up while others are going down, the Dow’s general “trend” could be down at the same time one of its component stocks is vectoring up. If you’re smart enough to invest in a stock that’s going up while the Dow’s trend is down, you can prosper.
The trend is your friend, alright—but which trend? The general trend for the market? Or the specific trend for a particular stock or commodity?
• When the trend in gold is dramatically up—as it was from A.D. 2001 when gold was priced at $280/ounce until September, 2011 when gold peaked at $1922—it seemed easy to know how to invest our wealth. Gold was up 580% in 11 years, that upward trend seemed certain to carry gold to an ever-higher level over the next 5 years, so gold seemed a sure thing.
However, in the last 20 months since gold peaked at $1,900, gold has moved significantly downward. Today, gold is $1,361—down 29% since its $1,900 peak.
So, we’re faced with some very fundamental questions:
Is the 29% decline in the price of gold merely a temporary “correction” in the up-trend (“bull market”) for gold that’s existed since A.D. 2,000 and is likely to continue for at least another five years? Or does the recent decline mark the end of the up-trend for gold and the beginning of a new down-trend (bear market) for gold?
These questions are vital because “the trend is your friend”. The trend is an implicit guarantee that, so long as the trend is intact, if you invest in way that’s consistent with that trend and hold your investment long enough, you’ll prosper. On the other hand, if you fail to recognize the current trend and invest in a way that defies that trend, you’ll probably suffer significant losses.
So, is gold’s uptrend still intact—or is the downtrend here to stay?
• To understand today’s trend, let’s first consider gold’s previous trends.
1800 to 1934—From America’s beginning until 1934, the price of gold was basically $20 per ounce.
1934 to 1971—government arbitrarily changed the price of gold from $20 to $35/ounce.
1971 to 1975—President Nixon stopped redeeming foreign-held dollars for gold. The dollar became a pure fiat currency without any legally-fixed relation to the price of gold. By February, 1975, the average monthly price of gold jumped from $35 to $175/ounce—a 400% increase in less than four years. It’s important to note that his 400% increase was brought on by government degrading the dollar to a pure fiat currency.
1975 to 1976—From February, 1975 to August, 1976, gold suffered a 37% “correction” as it fell from $175 to $110/ounce. (Coincidentally, this 18-month, 37% correction is not so dissimilar from to our current 20-month, 29% “correction” in the price of gold.)
1976 to 1980—From August, 1976 to July, 1980, gold rose from $110 per ounce to the monthly average price of $645—almost 600% in four years. (The similarity between the 1975-1976 “correction” and our recent 20-month decline in gold prices, is not proof that we can likewise expect another 600% increase in the price of gold in the next couple of years. However, given that that sort increase has happened before, it could therefore happen again. If it did, and today’s gold jumped 600% over the next four years, it might top out around $8,000/ounce.)
1980 to 1982—After the average monthly price of gold peaked at $645 in July of 1980, the price fell in a 51% “correction” until it hit a $315 bottom in June of 1982.
1982 to 2001—During the 9 years between 1982 and 2001, gold ranged from $300 to $500 but moved mostly sideways and ended up at about $265/ounce in February, 2001—down 11% from its 1982 bottom of $315. And the fun began.
2001 to 2011—From its $265 bottom in February, 2001, the price of gold rose steadily to $1900 in September, 2011. That’s a $1,635, 617% rise in ten years. Whew! What a ride, hmm? Left you “breathhhless!” and wanting more, didn’t it? (Note that both price rises between 1976 to 1980 and again between 2001 to 2011 worked out to about 600%.)
The ten years between 2001 and 2011 created the up-trend that most “goldbugs” have come to count on when we talked about $3,000, $5,000 and even $10,000 gold.
If that trend is still intact, we are golden.
If that trend is broken, we have a problem.
In a moment, we’ll reconsider this extraordinary decade and ask “Why did it happen?” If we can discover a primary event that precipitated the 2001-2011 uptrend in gold, we might also be able to discover whether that uptrend is over or still ongoing.
2011 to 2013—Aww, snap. In just 20 months, the price of gold fell 29% from its $1900 peak in 2011 to today’s $1361. I wouldn’t have thought it possible. I still don’t think it could’ve happened in a true free (unmanipulated) market.
Nevertheless, here we are. The price of gold is back to where it was in February, 2011.
Not much fun, is it? Ohh, it’s great for those who want to buy gold at a cheap price. But for those who’ve held gold for five or ten years, the past 20 months have been depressing. This 20-month loss is particularly disturbing because we don’t know if it’s merely a “correction” of the sort seen in 1975-1976 or if it marks the end of the magical 2001-2011 uptrend when gold was almost perfect.
Our ignorance makes us anxious. If we knew today’s trend for sure, we’d know what to do.
• Part of the problem with identifying trends is that they’re all time-sensitive. For example, did the current trend in gold start in the 1800s when gold was officially $20/ounce? In 1934, when gold was $35/ounce? 1975, when gold was $175? 1980, when it jumped to $645? 2001 when it was $265, or 2011 when it hit $1900?
The answer in every instance except the period starting in 2011, is Yes. We can choose to arbitrarily define any starting date to mark the beginning of today’s “trend”. If we claimed today’s trend started in the 1800s, gold is up. If we claimed today’s trend started in 1934, gold is up. If we started today trend in 1971, gold is up. If we started today’s trend in 2001, gold is up.
It’s only if we start today’s trend in 2011 (when gold peaked at $1922), that trend (if it’s s true “trend” rather than a mere “correction”) is down.
For me, that’s cause for some satisfaction. The trend for gold is up, up, and up for most of two hundred years—except for the past 20 months. Yes, there were other instances (like 1975-1976) when the price of gold fell significantly, but those were only “corrections” since they interrupted but did not terminate the long-term uptrend in gold.
It’s only the past 20-month decline in the price of gold that is ambiguous in that it might merely be a correction in the long-term uptrend for gold—or it might mark the onset of a completely new downtrend in gold and the corresponding end of the previous, 2-century long, uptrend.
Looking at the recent price decline from any perspective over 2.5 years old, gold is up. So, it seems improbable that the current price of gold is in a long-term downtrend. Such downtrend isn’t impossible, but it would defy the odds established by the past 10, 40, 80, and even 200 years of gold price changes.
Odds are, the current 20-month price decline is merely a “correction” in the ongoing uptrend in gold. If so, the price of gold should go higher in the near future.
Next, let’s reconsider some fundamentals.
• Fiat dollars. As I pointed out previously, in 1971, President Nixon stopped redeeming foreign-held dollars for gold and reduced the dollar to a pure fiat currency. By late February, 1975, the average monthly price of gold jumped from $35 to about $175/ounce—a 400% increase in less than four years. It’s important to note that his 400% increase was brought on by government degrading the dollar to a pure fiat currency.
Given the fact that a pure fiat dollar made the price of gold jump dramatically, has anything happened since 1971 to change our dollar’s status from that of a fiat currency? Is any such future change easily foreseen? Unless and until the dollar abandons its fiat nature, what are the chances that the price of gold is in a permanent downtrend? Just about zero.
Therefore, odds are, the price of gold is going back up in the foreseeable future.
• Petro-Dollars. After the dollar because pure fiat in 1971, the Nixon administration cut deals with Saudi Arabia and OPEC whereby those oil-producers guaranteed to sell their crude oil for only fiat dollars. As a result, any nation in the world that wanted to buy crude oil (and most nation’s did), had to have first have fiat dollars to pay for the crude. This created a global demand for intrinsically-worthless fiat dollars. The demand gave the dollars an implicit value. Thus, we had “petro-dollars” implicitly backed by petroleum rather than gold or silver.
The Nixon administration’s audacious scheme worked brilliantly until about 2001 when Saddam Hussein started selling Iraqi crude for currencies other than the fiat dollar. By selling Iraqi crude for euros, Saddam launched a mortal attack on the “petro-dollar”. If the world could purchase crude oil with currencies other than fiat dollars, the global demand for fiat dollars would fall, and the apparent value of “petro-dollars” would decline and might even die in a burst of hyperinflation.
The Powers That Be didn’t want a dead dollar and therefore determined to punish Iraq for daring to sell crude for currencies other than dollars. Under the pretext of seeking Weapons of Mass Destruction, we invaded Iraq in 2003, gave ‘em a dose of “Shock and Awe” to scare any other oil-producing country away from the idea of selling their crude for anything other than “petro-dollars,” imposed US dollars a Iraq’s primary currency, hanged Saddam and pretty much devastated Iraq.
Saddam had only sold Iraqi crude for euros for about 2 years. But, our invasion was nevertheless too late to save the dollar. The underlying fundamentals (i.e., the dollar is intrinsically worthless) were still too strong to be completely overcome by a mere dose of “Shock and Awe”.
Q: Will today’s market manipulation and gold price suppression be any more effective as saving the dollar? Or are the underlying fundamentals still too strong to be stopped?
• National Debt. Although President Obama says that debt is $17 trillion, John Williams at Shadowstats.com says the debt is actually closer to $90 trillion; the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says that, including unfunded liabilities, the national debt is over $200 trillion. I believe Williams and the CBO are right. If so, the national debt averages out to between $300,000 and $700,000 per living American.
There’s no way that even half of that debt can be repaid. I guesstimate that at least 80%—perhaps 90%—of that debt must be repudiated by inflation and/or government admission of overt bankruptcy. If I’m right, at least 80% to 90% of all government bonds and paper debt instruments that memorialize the national debt must be “vaporized”. I expect the repudiation of paper debt instruments to spread from bonds to stocks, mortgages, So-So Security, pension funds and even bank accounts. Insofar as paper debt instruments become worthless, people should start screaming for gold and silver. If so, the prices of precious metals should soar.
Has the national debt disappeared? Is it likely to disappear in the foreseeable future?
Therefore, I believe the national debt will guarantee that the price of gold must go up.
• Inflation. Today’s dollar is worth about 3% of what it was worth in A.D. 1970. In order to repudiate much of the national debt, the government has steadily inflated the dollar throughout my lifetimes. Quantitative Easing (QE) is intended to be inflationary. The central banks of the world are currently printing more and more fiat currencies in order to “stimulate” global economies with more inflation.
If central banks succeed in causing major, global inflation, the price of gold must go up at least enough to match inflation—and probably even more as demand for gold soars.
• The previous “fundamentals” have remained largely unchanged for the past several years. When each of those “fundamental vectors” are combined, the result is an economic “ship” that’s still “sailing” (trending) in virtually same direction as it was from 2001 to 2011. Insofar as fundamentals remain unchanged, I have to presume that the direction (trend) of our economic “ship” must also be unchanged. The trend in gold is still up and the recent 20-month decline in the price of gold should be a mere correction in an ongoing uptrend rather than the onset of a new, long-term downtrend.
But even if we agree that the uptrend should continue, the fact remains that gold is down 29% for the past 20 months. More, we can’t use “fundamentals” as an excuse to completely ignore reality. On average, gold has fallen over 1% per month for 20 months—and no one seems to know why.
The mysterious cause for that “correction” (or for that fundamental change in the “trend”) is both bewildering and scary because it hasn’t yet been identified. A number of possible explanations have been suggested. But, so far, no suggested explanation has been convincing.
Not wanting to be left behind in the “explanation derby,” I also have a theory as to what might’ve caused gold to fall for the past 20 months which I call,
• “Petro Currencies”. We know that in 1971, the Nixon administration stopped redeeming foreign-held US dollars with gold. We know that Nixon thereby reduced the dollar to a pure, intrinsically-worthless, fiat currency. We know that Nixon cut deals with the Saudis and OPEC wherein the world’s oil-exporting nations agreed to sell their crude oil for only fiat dollars. We know that the resulting global demand for fiat dollars caused the dollar to be implicitly backed by petroleum and thereby created an illusion of value for intrinsically-worthless fiat dollars. We know that Saddam Hussein threatened that illusion when he started selling Iraqi crude for euros in A.D. 2001. We know that since Saddam’s threat in A.D. 2001, that the value of the dollar as measured on the US Dollar Index (USDX) has fallen from 120 to 84 (about 30%).
All of this knowledge is evidence that, since A.D. 1971, the fiat dollar’s perceived value has been primarily based on its relationship to crude oil.
Given the intimate relationship between fiat dollars and crude oil over the past 42 years, it’s not unreasonable to wonder if something dramatic has happened in the last two years or so that might’ve reinvigorated that relationship. If the relationship between the fiat dollar and crude oil had been recently strengthened, it might explain the dollar’s rising value on the USDX and the falling price of gold.
Did something dramatic happen in the oil industry since A.D. 2010 to strengthen the dollar’s relationship to petroleum?
In the past two years, America has increased domestic oil production and has once again become an oil-exporting nation. That means that foreigners holding fiat dollars can use them to purchase crude oil directly from the US.
The current situation is not the same as the former “petro-dollar” scheme where foreigners were forced to acquire dollars—and only dollars—as a prerequisite for purchasing crude oil. Nevertheless, if any foreign nation has voluntarily acquired any fiat dollars, those fiat dollars can be used to purchase crude oil from the US.
The world still wants petroleum. Insofar as the world can now purchase crude oil from the US, the fiat dollar is, once again, implicitly backed by petroleum. Where, from 1971 through 2001, the fiat dollar was backed (primarily) by the world’s petroleum, today it’s backed by US petroleum.
The net result is that over the past two years, the fiat dollar (which was losing its perceived value as the world’s only petro-dollar) has, by virtue of rising US oil exports, become one of several “petro-currencies” and thereby regained some value—especially in view of the growing instability in the Middle East .
Insofar as that backing is now voluntary rather than mandatory, I’m calling this new global monetary system “Petro-Currencies”.
As such, the fiat dollar is not as strong as it was when it was the only “petro-currency,” but it has recently strengthened by becoming one of several “petro currencies” that are each implicitly backed by their country’s export of petroleum. Once again, the fiat dollar is implicitly-backed by at least some of the world’s crude oil. Once again, the fiat dollar has assumed an illusion of value.
Result? Dollar up; gold down.
Consider this hypothesis in light of the following principles:
1) So long as the US was a net importer of crude oil, any war or instability in the Middle East that threatened the global supply of crude oil could be expected to cause the fiat dollar to lose value and the price of gold to rise. But,
2) if the US becomes a net exporter of crude oil, Middle East instability and war would not cause the value of the US dollar to fall, but would instead cause increased demand for US petroleum. Increased global demand for fiat dollars should thereby cause the price of gold to fall.
Thus, this “Petro-Currencies” hypothesis seems consistent with current events over the past two years when Middle East instability has increased but the price of gold has declined.
Is this proof that my theory of “Petro-Currencies” is valid? No. But it’s evidence that it might be valid.
• The big question is How important or predominant might this theory be?
To go back to the ship analogy, the ship’s ultimate destination is the result of combing the several “vectors” of ocean current, wind speed and direction, and engine speed into a single vector or “trend” that will determine where the ship is actually heading and when it will arrive. The “SS Ship of Gold” has been heading in a particular direction towards, say, $5,000+ gold since A.D. 2001. The fundamental “vectors” (fiat currency, inflation, national debt) are basically unchanged. But a new “vector” (US oil exports) has been added. As a result, we will need a “course correction” just as if we’d had a sudden growth of barnacles on our ship’s hull. The magnitude of that course correction remains to be seen.
I believe that the “fundamentals” tell us that we’re still headed for the same destination ($5,000+ gold). But so long as the US exports oil, the dollar will be strengthened and it may take a little longer to reach that destination.

by Herbalist Wendy Wilson
Homesteading is an old fashioned term that seems to be coming back into fashion. What homesteading defines is self-sufficient living such as; planting your own food, having some livestock, building or maintaining your home and small scale production of home goods (clothes and crafts etc). The term homestead was widely used in the US around 1862 and the US Federal Government drafted the Homestead Act and it signed by President Lincoln. This law allowed individuals who did not take up arms against the US Government, who were 21 or older, a US resident and the head of a family could apply for a federal land grant. Northern farmers wanted to own their farms and operate them differently from the southern plantations, which didn't include slavery. The grant was designed to give farmers 160 acres of free land to foster the westward expansion of the United States . A National Homestead Monument is located in Southeast Nebraska.
"It is the purpose of our government to elevate the condition of men, to lift artificial burdens from all shoulders and to give everyone an unfettered start and a fair chance in the race of life." Abraham Lincoln, July 4, 1861
The concept of homesteading in American came from England and the British called it "smallholder." These terms were often associated with countries engaged with national expansion and Acts such at the US Homestead Act helped to control expansion and population in certain areas. These federal laws later lead to the management of timber and livestock. This was the starting point for laws to subsidize households in the 1930's and 1940's under President Roosevelt, which lead the way for future socialized government programs.
"A degree of independence comes when you grow it,
you build it and you provide it yourself. "
—Wendy Wilson, Herbalist
A resurgence of homesteading, self-sufficiency, living off the grid, preppers or whatever you want to call it, reemerged in the late 1990's. There are various levels of homesteading from those involved in growing their food to those living totally off the grid. By then urban homesteading was in full force with small scale family and community gardens popping up along with home-grown businesses operating out of the family garage. Self reliance was picking up speed as the tax burden grew in America Some Americans are determined to be self sufficient and that means backyard gardens needed more real estate. A degree of independence comes when you grow it, you build it and you provide it yourself. The homesteading lifestyle is different from the standards most US households are used to. For those on limited incomes and establishing a self-sufficient homestead from scratch can be challenging. The financial savings from adapting the homesteading lifestyle can correlate with fewer material luxuries. The cost of living is lowered by using less of the major infrastructure such as utilities.
WHY IS IT ATTRACTIVE?
Why is homesteading alluring? If it is hard work, long hours and fewer luxuries why would people dream of homesteading? For the most part it is about lifting the burden of government control and the unknown which can cause anxiety. It is also about connecting with like-minded, modern homesteaders and providing more security. In the modern world most people work for someone or some corporation, which at any moment the employment arrangement could end. There is also a sense of pride when we rise up to meet the challenge of homesteading. The urban life is comfortable and convenient but some are saying the price of stress to keep it is too high. And homesteading doesn't mean you have to go it alone. Many are connecting their homesteads, sharing skills and helping each other.
"Living simply doesn't mean living in poverty."
—Wendy Wilson, Herbalist
THE NEW AMERICAN DREAM
For some the concept of the American Dream has changed. The value system of the modern homesteader is different and they are more economical and creative in their life plan. They know that living simply doesn't mean living in poverty. These are folks that have tasted the rat race and chocked on it. They know the difference between the quality of life and quantity in your life. Keeping up the Jones is not part of their life plan. Mother Earth News Magazine has been running a series of homesteading articles such as; at what age is I time for a chicken to become the family dinner? Here are their links:
If you live on a homestead there is no time to be bored. The days are always filled with something to do. There are no idle hands among the self sufficient. Candle making isn't just for the Renaissance Festival. It takes teamwork and with practice comes proficiency. Homestead children are learning new words such as clothesline and clothes pins. The homestead folks know how to adjust and they will be able to cope with whatever the future holds. More people are realizing that governments can't and should not have to take care of them. The homestead concept is liberating and is attracting folks, which is a reason why they are leaving the urban areas for greener pastures.
MOST CHERISHED SYMBOL
The most cherished symbol of the US is the Declaration of Independence. Homesteading embraces this document. No other document, including the Constitution, confirms the rights and liberties God gave us and which can't be taken away by governments. If you need a little refresher, here is a twenty minute reminder why Thomas Jefferson authored this document http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FasYi_vqdWY&feature=youtu.be
If you think about it, homesteading is a form of self defense. What governments can give they can also take away. It is a shame that we live in times where we have to defend our self from the government. A recent example is the IRS harassing conservative groups seeking tax exemption.

Curative Properties of Colloidal Silver
by Ty Bollinger
Colloidal silver is a solution of extremely fine (submicroscopic) particles of pure silver suspended in water by a positive electric charge on each particle. The particles remain suspended throughout the solution because these positive-charged particles repel each other with a greater force than gravity. A powerful germicidal, silver is an exceptional metal in that it is non-toxic to the human body but lethal to over 650 disease-causing bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and molds. The daily ingestion of colloidal silveris like having a "second immune system."
I remember Granddad telling me that they used to put silver dollars into milk to keep it fresh longer, before they had refrigerators. It is well-known that the ancient Greeks knew the medical value of silver. They realized that families who used silver utensils were rarely sick and had few infections. This knowledge passed on to kings, emperors, sultans, and their families and members of their royal courts. They ate from silver plates, drank from silver cups, used silver utensils, and stored their food in silver containers.
As a result of this use, the silver rubbed off and mixed with their foods and drinks. As a general rule, they were much healthier than the peasants who ate with dishes made of earthenware and utensils made of iron. This is why royalty became known as "blue bloods," since their skin had a blue-grey tint from the accumulation of minute traces of pure silver. This is also where the phrase"born with a silver spoon in your mouth" arose.
While studying regeneration of limbs, spinal cords and organs in the late 1970's, Dr. Robert O. Becker, author of The Body Electric, discovered that silver ions promote bone growth and kill surrounding bacteria. The March 1978 issue of Science Digest, in an article, "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," reported: "Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic." The article ended with a quote by Dr. Harry Margraf, a biochemist and pioneering silver researcher: "Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have."http://ebookbrowse.com/science-digest-march-1978-pdf-d49168987
How does it work? The presence of colloidal silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme. In other words, it disables the pathogen's "chemical lung" so that it cannot breathe. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies and is cleared out of the body by the immune, lymphatic, and elimination systems. Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics (which destroy beneficial bacteria and enzymes), colloidal silver selectively targets pathogens and leaves healthy tissue alone.
Taken orally, colloidal silveris absorbed from the mouth into the bloodstream then transported quickly to the body cells. Swishing the solution under the tongue briefly before swallowing may result in faster absorption. In three to four days, the silver may accumulate in the tissues sufficiently for benefits to begin. Colloidal silver is eliminated by the kidneys, lymph system, and bowels. Prior to 1938, colloidal silver was used by physicians as a mainstream antibiotic treatment and was considered to be a "cutting edge" treatment for a variety of ailments.
Not surprisingly, however, Big Pharma moved in and caused colloidal research to be set aside in favor of financially lucrative drugs.

What's Ailing America?
Big Pharma Lies & Terror Tactics
by Rebecca Carley, MD
The self evident truth that our "public servants" are actually in service to Big Pharma continues to mount, as do the terror tactics being used to force inoculation of bioweapon vaccines on sentient beings (i.e., beings with perception and consciousness; those very aspects being under direct assault by these bioweapons). I continue to report to you the threats to your lives and to humanity itself. I wait for the tipping point, when a critical mass of people with a conscience realize that they are under direct assault. Your lives and future generations are at stake. How long will you consent with your silence?
Some relevant activities of our "public servants" which, of course, are NOT being reported by the main stream media, include the following:
Government Funded Phone App Tracks "Vaccine Refusers"
"Police State" Registry System Being Set Up to Track Your Vaccination Status
Pharma-backed legislation to allow secret vaccinations of children without parental consent about to become law in California
Parents have no 'right' to homeschool their kids, says Justice Department
Hmmm first they try to stop homeschooling from being "legal"; then they have the audacity to pass laws allowing children to be inoculated with disease without parental consent. Since all of the parents I know who home school do NOT vaccinate their children, is it not self evident that they want to get those home schooled children into public school so they can be assaulted with bioweapon vaccines? Is this obsession with the insane practice of inoculation with disease happening to increase health, or is this a biological assault; and thus a crime against humanity?
This medical tyranny is happening all over the world:
Australian Telegraph newspaper endorses medical child abuse: Unvaccinated children should be raised as outcasts: Learn more
But we do have some GOOD news (which proves that when enough people demand that their "public servants" address their actual concerns, things start to happen) can be found in some state legislatures:
Sanford lawmaker wants doctors to disclose vaccine ingredients
You can listen to Representative Boland being interviewed at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/themaryandsallieshow/2013/05/05/legislator-of-the-week-repandrea-boland-maine.
She will be on my show on RBN this Sunday, May 19th. I sent her an email that another document that prediatricians (and veterinarians) should be mandated to five to potential vaccinees is 42 USC § 300aa-25-Recording and reporting of information, which can be located at http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/42/300aa-25.
There you will see the following: A report under paragraph (1) respecting a vaccine shall include the time periods after the administration of such vaccine within which vaccine-related illnesses, disabilities, injuries, or conditions, the symptoms and manifestations of such illnesses, disabilities, injuries, or conditions, or deaths occur, and the manufacturer and lot number of the vaccine.
I have waited for over a decade for the CDC to reveal what "vaccine-related illnesses, disabilities, injuries, or conditions, the symptoms and manifestations of such illnesses, disabilities, injuries, or conditions" are. To date, NO RESPONSE. However, my 16 years of research has already proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that essentially all diseases in "internal medicine" are caused by vaccines (as validated in the research contained in the article "Science of Vaccine Damage, which can be accessed here.
These documents PROVE that the true purpose of vaccines is to CREATE DISEASE (so that Big Pharma can then make billions by selling you drugs that cure nothing, yet create further side effects. I take the time to provide you links on information I cover so you can CHECK THINGS OUT FOR YOURSELF. I anxiously await a mass realization that we are being murdered by corrupt agencies within our own government, who simultaneously claim that chemical weapons are being used on the citizens in Syria, supposedly validating an attack on that country that we all know is coming.
There is also some good news on the psychiatric fraud front:
Psychiatric Diagnostic and Statistical Manual denounced by the National Institute of Mental Health
Lastly, off the subject (but very important), my radio guest on May 12, 2013 was Jerry Day, an expert on CAFR's (comprehensive annual financial reports). If you were not aware, every layer of our government is incorporated, and they have 2 sets of books; their "budget" and the CAFR, which reveals the truth about how much money they have hidden from the public; while crying "broke" and continually increasing taxes. Check out this interview.
