Misc. Quotes, Comments & Questions

• According to Bloomberg (“Metals, Currency Rigging Is Worse Than Libor, Bafin Says”),
“Germany’s top financial regulator said possible manipulation of currency rates and prices for precious metals is worse than the Libor-rigging scandal, which has already led to fines of about $6 billion. . . . Elke Koenig, the president of Bonn-based Bafin, . . . is the first global finance regulator to comment publicly on the investigations as probes into the London interbank offered rate, or Libor, expand into other benchmarks.”
What difference a year makes, hmm?
A year ago, if you believed that the gold market was manipulated, you were dismissed as a tin-foil-hat, conspiracy nut.
But, today, high government officials and mainstream media are admitting that market manipulation has been on-going and undeniable for most of a decade.
Insofar as the crime of market manipulation has become undeniable, how long before the manipulators are sued civilly or prosecuted criminally?
How much longer can the price manipulation continue?
What will happen to the price of gold if the market manipulation is reduced or even ended?
• Keith Barron, PhD. is a world-renowned geologist who’s responsible for one of the largest gold discoveries in the past 25 years. In a recent radio interview, Mr. Barron said,
"I'm starting to believe it is getting easier and easier for a major player or players to pull a 'Bunker Hunt' and corner the gold market. The Hunt Brothers took the price of silver into the stratosphere back in 1980. With the lack of available physical gold, I believe wealthy entities will shock the gold market and send prices soaring in 2014 because it is now so vulnerable."
Actually, the physical gold market has already been “cornered” by a conspiracy composed of major Wall Street banks, the Federal Reserve and the U.S. government. However, unlike the Hunt Brothers’ attempt to corner silver and push its price higher in A.D. 1980, today’s gold market “cornering” is intended to push the price of gold lower. Why? To protect the fiat dollar.
Evidence? It’s undeniable that the prices of gold and silver have been manipulated and suppressed for at least a decade. Even the mainstream media finally agrees.
That persistent and long-term manipulation proves that some “major players” have already “cornered” the paper gold market for the purpose of holding the price of physical gold down and thereby making the fiat dollar seem unnaturally valuable.
Therefore, if the price of gold began to suddenly rise, would that be more likely to be caused by a new group of “major players” conspiring to “corner” the gold market and send gold prices higher? Or would it be caused by a failure of the existing group of “major players” (the Wall St. banks, Federal Reserve and US government) to continue to hold the price of gold down?
Will the price of physical gold rise because a new group of conspirators “corner” the gold markets? Or will the price of physical gold rise because the existing group of market manipulators who have “corned” the paper gold market, finally run out of the resources needed to defy the free market?
Either way, the forces favoring a rise in the price of gold are strong.
I doubt that any new group is about to “corner” the gold market. Instead, I believe that the existing conspiracy to corner gold is about to collapse and allow the price of gold to once again be determined by the free market.
• John Hathaway, January 7th, A.D. 2013:
“We believe that the resolution of the disconnect between paper and physical gold will be a dramatic upside repricing of the real thing. Most important is the steady migration of physical gold bars held in Western vaults to China and other parts of Asia, where they seem unlikely to be returned, other than for exorbitant ransom.”
Exactly. We’ll never regain the gold we’ve sold to China at a price anywhere near the price China has paid.
China won’t ever resell the gold it bought for $1200 an ounce, for $1300, $1500 or even $2000 per ounce.
If and when Asia finally agrees to sell some of its gold back to the US (or anyone else still using US fiat dollars), I’ll bet the price is at least $3,000, maybe $5,000—and perhaps much more than that.
• The Washington Timesreports in “Rep. Louie Gohmert drop health insurance,” that:
“Rep. Louie Gohmert, Texas Republican, said he’s had to drop his health care coverage because Obamacare has made it too expensive.
Congressman Gohmert is trying to blame the loss of his and his wife’s health care insurance on President Obama. But the truth is that real blame lies with Mr. Gohmert, himself, and the rest of Congress.
“Other people are going to see what I did when I looked into health insurance for my wife and me—that the deductible rate, it doubled, about $3,000 to $6,000, and our policy was going to go from about $300 to about $1,500 a month,” he said during a local radio interview in his home state.
“I actually don’t have insurance right now, so thank you very much, Obamacare,” Mr. Gohmert said during the interview, according to the Dallas Morning News.
“Mr. Gohmert said he’ll instead pay the penalty tax, about 1 percent of his annual $174,000 congressional income.
“I lost my health care,” he said. “I liked it OK, but I didn’t get to keep it. I couldn’t afford to go up four or five times what I was paying and double my deductible, and so I’m better off with just setting money aside for health care and paying the penalty.”
Remember Nancy Pelosi telling Congress that they needed to first vote for Obamacare so they could then see what was in it?
Well, the damn fools voted for Obamacare without bothering to read the bill. But, just Ms. Pelosi predicted, they now know what’s in it. And they don’t much like it.
In Congressman Gohmert’s case, he now knows that, thanks to be the bill he voted for without reading, he (who is 60) and his wife (who is 59) no longer have medical insurance. Not a good time of life to be without insurance, hmm?
I wonder if this lesson teaches Congressman Gohmert to read the bills proposed in Congress before he votes for them. Probably not.
Still, the story provides a wonderful irony, no?
What justice. Even Congress is forced to suffer under a bill they voted to enact.
I’m amused. I’m even impressed.
The treasonous whores in the Cathouse on the Potomac have been made to bear the weight of their own idiocy. The crap that they didn’t mind dumping on the taxpayers is also flowing back down onto Congress.
• Speaking of Obamacare, The Washington Times reports in “Hacking expert David Kennedy says he cracked HealthCare.gov in 4 minutes,” that,
“The man who appeared before Congress last week to explain the security pitfalls of HealthCare.gov took to Fox News on Sunday to explain just how easy it was to penetrate the website.
How inspiring. If you sign up for Obamacare, a hacking expert can capture your personal identification info in less than four minutes—and with nothing more sophisticated than a web browser.
“Hacking expert David Kennedy told Fox’s Chris Wallace that gaining access to 70,000 personal records of Obamacare enrollees via HealthCare.gov took about 4 minutes and required nothing more than a standard browser . . . .”
Grade school kids have browsers.
Perhaps the firm responsible for Obamacare computer security is the same one employed by Target to protect all those credit cards.
Incidentally, President Obama and the Democrat Party have begun to insist that people stop calling the new health law “Obamacare” and instead refer to it by its proper name: the “Affordable Care Act”. President Obama and the Democrats want to distance themselves from the health care debacle by changing the name from “Obamacare” to “Affordable Care Act”.
Hmph. It’s not enough that we have to pussyfoot around the “N-word”. Now, we must also pussyfoot around the “O-word” (“Obamacare”).
The way things are going, there’ll soon be an “A-word,” “B-word,” “C-word,” etc. until we have so many taboo words that they’ll probably have to add more letters to the alphabet.
• Agence France-Presse reports (“Japan tells world to stand up to China or face consequences”) that,
“In a landmark speech on Wednesday to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe issued what amounted to an appeal for international support in a potentially explosive dispute with its superpower neighbour over islands in the East China Sea.
Japan is warning that if China is allowed to challenge and defeat Japan over control of some small islands and petroleum in East China Sea, Japan’s economy will suffer and (because Japan is the world’s #3 economy) cause the global economy to decline or even collapse. Japan is essentially claiming to be “too big to fail” and all but demanding that it be treated with the same deference as major Wall Street banks.
“Abe told the annual meeting of global business and political leaders, that "If peace and stability were shaken in Asia, the knock-on effect for the entire world would be enormous. . . . the world must stand up to an increasingly assertive China or risk a regional conflict with catastrophic economic consequences.”
Japan is also admitting that it’s too weak to resist China’s power.
And Japan at least implies that the US—which is treaty-bound to protect and support Japan in the event of conflict with China—has secretly informed Japan that we may not be able to provide the necessary support. That might be why Japan is appealing to the “world” (not the US) for support in resisting China.
If the US has secretly notified Japan that we won’t stand with Japan and against China, that might merely indicate that our new associations with China are more politically important than our old associations with Japan. It might also indicate that our government is too broke to get into another shooting war.
(What will happen to America’s foreign prestige, if we fail to protect Japan against China? Will a loss of international prestige adversely affect the fiat dollar’s standing as “world reserve currency”? Could these events help push the price of gold higher?)
None of this bodes well for Japan. If Japan is too weak to resist China’s aggression on its own, and can’t count on the US or world to defend it, Japan may be about to become China’s vassal.
If Japan is that weak and defenseless, its status as a major economy may be about to decline significantly.
If Japan loses its former stature and power, will the balance of Western economies also suffer losses? I think so.
The real point to this is that Japan could be the “black swan” event that triggers a global depression. Or maybe it’s not Japan, but is instead, Spain, or Italy, France or the European Union itself. The world economy and most national economies are overly indebted, fragile and unstable. Any one of a score of trouble-spots might be the one to push the global economy over the line and into collapse.
How many times can we roll the dice before they come up “snake eyes” and the global economy “craps out”?
Given the global economy’s vulnerability and the number of trouble-spots threatening that economy, it seems all but inevitable that one of those trouble-spots will soon explode and push the global economy into a full blown depression.
• Speaking of China, Reuters reports in “China grants gold import licenses to foreign banks for first time,” that:
“China has granted licenses to import gold to two foreign banks for the first time, sources said, as moves to open the world's biggest physical bullion market gather pace.
Q.: What’s the big news?
“Allowing more banks to import gold could increase the supply of the metal into the country, easing local prices that are higher than in most Asian nations.”
A.: “Moves to open the world’s biggest physical bullion market gather pace.”
The price of physical gold has been suppressed over the past decade because New York and London gold markets have predominantly traded in paper, rather than physical, gold. As a result, we know today’s manipulated-market price for paper gold, but no one knows the true, free-market price of physical gold.
All that will change if China opens the “world’s biggest physical bullion market”. Once that physical gold market opens, the world may quickly discover that the free-market price of physical gold is much higher than the manipulated-market price of paper gold.
More, the resulting divergence between the prices of paper and physical gold might evolve suddenly. Given that savvy investors know the price of physical gold has been artificially and significantly depressed over the past decade, they also know that the real, free-market price of gold is much, much higher than the current paper price. How much higher is anyone’s guess, but speculators might jump into the first modern physical gold market with both feet and cause the price of physical gold to skyrocket.
Thus, once the “world’s biggest physical bullion market” opens fully to the public, it’s conceivable that the price of gold could double, triple or more in just the first few days or weeks.
If so, those holding gold anywhere in the world when the new “biggest physical bullion market” opens may enjoy a profit more sudden and spectacular than anything peviously seen in any free market.
This is from the first part of a news storie with Laurie Roth and her regular guest Andy Ramirez, President of Law Enforcement Officers Advocates Council, Inc.
Breaking News: Part 1
Documentation, whistle blowers from DHS and well over 30 pages of names, dates and facts exposed on my nationalradio show.
Congress says they don’t want to hear it because they are pushing for amnesty with Boehner. This week one of my fabulous and regular guests, Andy Ramirez, President of Law Enforcement Officers Advocates Council, Inc. broke on my national radio show evidence of massive corruption, lies, perjury and crime peppered through our border patrol, immigration policy and enforcement over many years inside of the Department of Homeland Security.
Andy stated that David Aguilar, who in March 2013 retired from DHS as the long-time Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (and Chief of the Border Patrol between 2004-2009), perjured himself before Congress, including February 2007 before the House Committee on Homeland Security’s Border Subcommittee. As a result of the Aguilar appearance, Andy was asked by GOP Members to testify in a follow-up hearing in March 2007 and tell the facts given as they believed Aguilar lied before the committee. Andy was informed he was needed to tell the truth and facts, which he did.
http://www.andyramirez.com/pdf/Ramirez_HHSC_03-08-07.pdf – Andy’s official written testimony
http://www.andyramirez.com/pdf/CQ_Ramirez_Testifies_HomelandSecurityComm_032007.pdf – Article by Congressional Quarterly comparing the testimony of Ramirez and Aguilar
Aguilar, appointed in 2004, transformed the border patrol into a dangerous, kiss up brigade, where Border Patrol agents could not do what they needed to do to defend the borders, nor have the technology to operate. Ramirez states that Aguilar had total cover from Rep. Silvestre Reyes, who was Aguilar’s former boss in the Border Patrol in South Texas where Reyes was a Chief Patrol Agent. Reyes lost his re-election bid in the 2012 El Paso, TX primary after serving 8 terms. They were both transforming the Border patrol into nothingness so the illegals could continue storming through.
Aguilar lied before the committee. Andy was informed he was needed to tell the truth and facts, which he did.
In a private briefing in Mid-July 2013 with top GOP Congressmen who serve on committees with direct oversight over the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Andy informed Members of Congress that official DHS representatives lied in official sworn testimony on June 27, 2013 before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s Border Subcommittee headed up by Jason Chaffetz, R-UT. In his confidential report filed in late July, he identified the specific times where representatives from the Border Patrol, Office of Field Operations (known previously as Customs), and the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency were not only stonewalling questions by the committee members but clearly misleading Congress. But that is a pattern that has long gone on for years at DHS under both the Bush and Obama Administrations.
Andy identifies that a well placed confidential source informed him they were ordered to do so by superiors, which was not surprising given that the Gang of 8’s amnesty bill, S-744 was up for final vote, and was passed by the U.S. Senate that very day.
I asked Ramirez: “Why is there so little enforcement on real border security and such an obsession with amnesty? We both believe it has never had a thing to do with helping poor and desperate people…as Bush used to say, ‘family values’ coming across the border…bla bla and bla. It is two fold: 1) The Democrats and the Republicans want to bring over slave labor AND a voter block they think they can control – desperate people who vote their way 2) Billions of dollars in drug money going all the way to the top. There are no doubt people and leadership all along with way from the Mexican Government up to our White House who will do anything to protect their drug money. It is big business.
Andy forwarded me several documents, as evidence as well as the actual report provided to Congress from July 2013 and testimony before Congress clear back in July 5, 2006 on the corruption, mismanagement, and perjury. The 2013 information was initially well-received but once he departed DC, the information was virtually ignored by August.
See the testimony of Andy Ramirez before the House International Relations, now known as Foreign Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee on International Terrorism and Global Nonproliferation, where he first identified a border security program, Project Athena that not only accurately monitored the U.S. – Canadian Border but also the U.S. – Mexican Border and exceeded all expectations unlike the fraud-filled Secure Borders Initiative or SBI, which was selected by DHS (and ultimately then-Chief Aguilar) in 2006.
The next four links show Andy Ramirez testimony as it happened on July 5, 2006.

During the same July 2013 visit to Capitol Hill, Andy Ramirez also spoke to the top staff of Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee who were thoroughly briefed on his documentation and the corruption in DHS. Issa’s staff also received a written copy of the report provided to other Members he met with. I must note that Issa is also a senior Member of the House Judiciary Committee.
Unbelievably, Andy was informed by another Congressman that he met with that it was pointless to seek support from GOP Chairmen Bob Goodlatte of the Judiciary Committee as Goodlatte was being pressured by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor who had an adjacent district in Virginia. Congressman Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee would want to turf this to his committee as an “immigration matter”, though in reality, this is a corruption matter. Given McCaul’s approach on immigration legislation, and knowing that Speaker Boehner would not back this, Issa’s Oversight Committee was believed to be our best bet due to the pure corruption issue at hand given he’d taken on Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, the IRS, and other top Obama officials in his committee.
Why wouldn’t they really help? According to Andy, Boehner, Cantor, and many other Republicans were trying to get ‘amnesty’ pushed through and his report was simply in the way. Apparently we can’t have the public knowing just how corrupt DHS really is regarding border security and immigration issues. That might hurt their deceitful and progressive plan to cram amnesty through and have the same criminals run it.”
Ramirez stated to me that the doors were also shut by other leading conservative anti-Amnesty Reps, sighting the push for amnesty and Boehner not wanting to be sidetracked. One Member who was most interested in helping fight this informed Andy that his hands were tied, but he had informed Chairman Chaffetz and his staff and forwarded the report and documentation.
We will be revealing all their names over the next few weeks in continued articles.
Hearing all this on my show from Andy was just about making my head explode I was so angry. Here we are facing the 2014 elections and are desperately needing and hoping for real conservative leadership to win — repeal Obamacare and fix things. Then we hear how even the ‘conservative’ republicans like Darrell Issa who know better are supporting the manipulative and deceitful push for amnesty. They are doing this while they look the other way in exposing massive and multi year corruption in the DHS regarding border security and the border patrol! It is just inconvenient to confront and deal with corruption and observe the law.
At this time Andy Ramirez and I are exposing the slammed door and inaction by Oversight Chairman Issa and his staff because they were fully informed by Andy and chose not to act. Instead Ramirez was given smiles, thanked for his time, and what have you, but ultimately showed the door because ‘Boehner’ wouldn’t go for it and they were pushing for amnesty.
Andy and I feel like we were on the set of ‘Alice in wonderland part 2’ as many GOP and most Dems and Obama are trying anything they can to slam ‘amnesty’ through while people aren’t looking and are being swallowed up in horror by Obamacare.
The same corrupt DHS, internal affairs cover-ups and fraud will run ‘amnesty’ in its various color of the week, as was running and destroying our border patrol and national security at ports of entry. At least the crime family is organized and experienced so crime will continue to roll out smoothly against Americans.

What is the value of life?
by Herbalist Wendy Wilson
Recently I interviewed Dr. Rebecca Carley on my radio show, Herb Talk Live, and she shed some light on the codes medicine uses to process your medical claims to your insurance company. I didn't stop to really think about these codes. In the 1980's I used to work in a medical office and the ICD9 (diagnosis) and CPT (procedure) codes were commonly used in the field of medicine. Who hasn't left their doctor's office with a receipt of their visit with codes circled for the gals in billing office to enter into the computer to bill insurance? So, what are these codes and how do they impact our health? Let's find out.
ONE-WORLD HEALTH CARE
The ICD9 codes are really the International Classification of Diseases and have become the brainchild of the United Nations and World Health Organization. These codes are their standard tools to apply a statistical value to not just your diagnosis but also to the value of human life. We're told the codes are for health management, clinical and billing purposes. This may be true, however with the push for a one-payer global healthcare system, these codes will help to determine if patients (or should I say "units" according to the ACA), are worth saving. So, looking at any health-related bill the deception is that these codes look as innocent as a product item inventory number. However, these codes are taking your personal health assessment and establishing a value to it. Anyone who saw the move I Robot will recall that the police officer was saved by a robot from drowning while the young girl, also involved in the accident, was determined by the robot to have less of a life value and was left to drown. The robot could only save one and chose the person with a statistical higher life value. I think these medical codes are instituted to make statistical life assessments on who should receive medical treatment and who should not. We've heard about the ACA's "death panel" of bureaucrats which are authorized to determine who should receive life-saving medical treatments and these ICD codes will help them with such life value assessments
According to the WHO, the ICD9 codes classify disease with a wide range of findings including but not limited to: symptoms, abnormal findings, social circumstances, external causes etc. These codes help map genetics and the mapping can become so specific that some codes can have six characters. These codes track morbidity and mortality rates and the reimbursements paid to doctors and hospitals. They also promote automated healthcare decisions. These statistics are gathered globally and are used to compare disease worldwide. The ICD9 code classification is statistic-based and classifies health disorders and offers diagnostic assistance. The WHO and the UN produced a new version of this statistical health manual in 1992 called ICD-10 and these codes are current through 2015. These codes put patients into categories. Each code references a patient's level of health function, disability, mental capacity, social capacity and other correlations related to life value. There are over 155,000 different codes in the ICD-10 which guide or instruct physicians on diagnosis and procedures. So, the ICD9 publication had a mere 17,000 codes. These codes seem to be the training manual for treatment for healthcare providers. We can't neglect to mention that folks under Medicare or Medicaid have their own version called ICD-10-CM. The ICD9 codes were replaced October 1, 2013 by the Department of Health and Human Services. However, the ACA is such a mess the use of the ICD9 has been extended a year. The WHO is currently working on a new version called ICD-11 and this publication is designed for Internet workspaces as a Collaborative Authorizing Tool Platform and should be active by 2015 in 41 languages.
The statistical classification of health started in France around 1893 by Dr. Jacques Bertrillon and the information compiled was called Bertillon Classification of Causes of Death. The primary purpose of this publication was to help doctors distinguish differences in diseases. By 1898 the American Public Health Association recommended that the US, Mexico and Canada adopt this concept and it went from a European regional publication to an International one and thus the International Classification of Causes of Death was published in 1900. Every decade there was a new revision published and by 1910 it became the International Statistical Classification of Diseases, Injuries and Causes of Death; also known as your ICD codes. The responsibility to manage this publication fell on a group from the International Statistical Institute but by 1948 the WHO took it over.
UNITS OF UNIVERSAL CODE
What we have is a health system which is programmed to reduce the treatment and life value of a patient into bits of universal code. According to IngeniousMed.com, US doctors must use the ICD-10 codes by October 2014 if they want to be paid by insurance companies or the government. Currently 25 countries are using the ICD-10 and it is a tool medical offices and doctors use for all insurance providers and there are no exceptions if they want reimbursement. These codes affect decision making and analytical systems. The Department of Health and Human Services will rely on this system of codes to determine if surgery or other medical interventions are warranted. This new coded system called ICD-10 requires doctors and hospitals to upgrade their IT systems, which is of significant expense and small medical practices struggle to comply. Healthcare professionals and the patients are told that the additional 138,000 codes will make the system more efficient and make documentation easier. What this system will do is weed out the health professionals that are non-compliant and black list them from insurance providers. They will have no choice but to either leave the patient care medical field or to no longer accept insurance to survive. This system will also increase the audits of healthcare practices and they will be paperless audits. Backdoor access into this IT system allows several government agencies access to monitor accounts and watch for insurance fraud. This system will dictate to physicians the recommended care for patients or risk their reimbursements. Make no mistake that his is also a health reporting system on patients and physicians.
According to the US News.com and WatchDog.org more of the top hospitals across the US are opting out of the ACA. It's been reported that 95% of the physicians in California also have opted out. Patients may have insurance through their state exchanges but nowhere to use it. It appears that the nation's premier hospitals are accepting maybe one or two insurance providers under the ACA. Why is that? The ACA has caps on what doctors and hospitals are paid. Seven of every ten physicians in the state of California are refusing to participate in the ACA exchanges.
"It doesn't surprise me that there's a high rate of nonparticipation. We can't do a service to the community for free and we can't do it at a loss. No other business would lose money. And yet, that is the expectation of the big government masterminds who brought us Obamacare." Dr. Richard Thorp, President of the California Medical Association
Provided by Dr. Rebecca Carley regarding the Affordable Care Act:
42 USC § 18115 - Freedom not to participate in Federal health insurance programs
"No individual, company, business, nonprofit entity, or health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall be required to participate in any Federal health insurance program created under this Act (or any amendments made by this Act), or in any Federal health insurance program expanded by this Act (or any such amendments), and there shall be no penalty or fine imposed upon any such issuer for choosing not to participate in such programs."
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6
The Congressional Budget Office estimates that 30 million Americans will remain uninsured under the ACA. For varied reasons people are not participating in their state exchanges citing; the premium is too high, the insurance is not a good value, political reasons, religious reasons or they found a better deal elsewhere. Not everyone really needs heath insurance just like not everyone needs birth control drugs. What most people may need is protection from catastrophic hospitalization and the expense it carries. For this you could investigate your very affordable options with www.chministries.org (Christian Healthcare Ministries 800-791-6225). As long as The People continue to tolerate their government taking their God-given Rights and turning them into government controlled privileges, then The People will continue to be enslaved. Start saying no to tyranny. Your life value depends on it.
SAVED MY LIFE
In the early 1990's I started using medicinal herbs and they saved my life. Had I not paid attention to the precious option God had provided I would today suffer from a myriad of illnesses including chronic fatigue syndrome. I had low energy, my lower back constantly ached, I had annual bouts of tonsillitis, ear infections and sinus infections. I was always constipated and had skin problems such as acne and eczema. I was not overweight but was slightly underweight at 108 pounds. Then one day I did my first bowel cleanse and it was like lifting a 50 pound weight off of my body. I was amazed that the back pain was gone (and never came back). My skin cleared up as well as my constipation and my energy was back to normal. I later learned I was allergic to milk and removed it from my diet and with it my tonsillitis, ear and sinus infections never returned. I was dumbfounded that this cleanse and dairy removal from my diet changed my life for the better forever. This was the best kept secret and I wanted to know more and share it with others. Everyone reading this has this power if they exercise it. Cleanse and nourish the body and you have the best prevention against disease and your life value is limitless.

What's Ailing America?
Never ending distraction from ongoing genocide and treason
by Rebecca Carley, MD
In last week's newsletter, I asked readers who appreciate the time and effort I spend to write these newsletters to contact me if they want me to continue speaking the brutally honest truth. I thank all of you who responded that I am NOT wasting my time; that you are sharing the information with others who are standing up against the psychopaths in your own ways. So here we go again
When you know how the psychopaths work, it is easy to see how we are constantly distracted from what is really important. Hollywood is used on a regular basis, but the "red carpet" distraction has been on steroids lately with all the movie and music awards. Most people (not me) had yesterday off to celebrate Martin Luther King day, where we were once again inundated with various TV specials about MLK my favorite was the one starring traitor to the people "Rev" Al Sharpton at his "national action network". This publicity hog never discusses anything that matters, even though he knows what is going on. When I lived in NY I did a talk at his place about vaccine induced diseases he was too scared to even come in the room. He sat outside at a reception desk, apparently to give himself plausible deniability about the information presented. But the most amusing recent distraction was the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal involving NJ Governor Chris Christie, which has been on the news for days and has now escalated to include the alleged withholding of funds for superstorm Sandy damage from Hoboken due to that city's mayor not doing as she was told by Gov Christie. This is how corrupt politicians work so one has to wonder what did Governor Christie do to piss off the psychopaths pulling the puppet strings that this is coming out now? Or did they need another distraction from things that are really important such as the poisoning of water in West Virginia?
Check out the article published in the Charlotte Observer titled "Chemical Spill tests Lawmakers" posted at http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2014/01/20/4625582/chemical-spill-tests-lawmakers.htm#.Ut6-BftOmt8 . This is VERY important as it reveals not only how the agencies that are supposed to protect us from poisons do not, but how the traitor politicians sell us out. Because the info in this article is so important, I am pasting it below
"There are more than 80,000 chemicals in the United States cataloged by government regulators, and the health risks of most of them are unknown. This became glaringly obvious when, on Jan. 9, a clear, licorice-smelling chemical leaked from an old storage tank into the Elk River in West Virginia, contaminating the drinking water for a big chunk of the state, including the capital, Charleston.
What made the spill alarming was not only the reports of rashes, stomach aches and other ailments, but also the paucity of solid information about the potential toxicity of Crude MCHM, which is primarily composed of a chemical named 4-methylcyclohexane methanol.
The 15-page Material Safety Data Sheet for the chemical, which is manufactured by the Tennessee-based Eastman Chemical Co., uses the phrase "No data available" 152 times.
Repeated dose toxicity: "No data available."
Carcinogenicity: "No data available." [SAME THING STATED FOR ALL VACCINES]
Reproductive toxicity: "No data available." [SAME THING STATED FOR ALL VACCINES]
Specific target organ toxicity, repeated exposure: "No data available."
So sketchy is the public health system's understanding of the chemical's toxicity that officials wound up backtracking on whether it was safe for everyone to start drinking the water again after the do-not-use order was lifted last week.
At first, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the water would be safe if it had less than 1 part per million of Crude MCHM. But then on Wednesday, the state Department of Health and Human Resources, after consulting with the CDC, said pregnant women shouldn't drink the water until officials declare it free of any trace of the chemical.
"There are extraordinary gaps in knowledge," said Daniel Horowitz, head of the U.S. Chemical Safety Board, an independent agency that investigates industrial accidents. Of the West Virginia case, he said, "There are so many chemicals around, and in most cases the toxicology is not complete."
Chemicals in the United States are generally treated as innocent until proven guilty. A company does not have to prove that a chemical poses no health hazard in order to introduce it into the commercial market. Maranda Demuth, a spokeswoman for Eastman Chemical, said the company "goes to great lengths to ensure our commercial products and facilities meet or exceed regulatory standards."
She said that, although U.S. law did not require Eastman to test Crude MCHM, the company voluntarily conducted 18 toxicity tests on the product and its major component. She played down the significance of the "No data available" entries, noting that nine of 152 such entries refer to water, which is harmless. She said the company abides by the European Union's strict requirements for toxicity disclosure, and that, had the company followed the U.S. standard, it wouldn't have included the "no data" entries at all.
It has been 38 years since Congress passed a major piece of legislation regulating toxic chemicals. No one on any side of the debate over chemicals disputes that the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA – usually referred to as "Tosca") is outdated and needs an upgrade.
Two senators, the late Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., and David Vitter, R-La., introduced anindustry-friendly bill last year called the Chemical Safety Improvement Act. Lautenberg died just days later. The bill is mired in a Senate committee; on the other end of the Capitol, a House subcommittee has held hearings on chemical safety and is crafting a bill similar to the Senate's.
The Senate bill is opposed by Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, a coalition of environmental, labor and public health organizations. What happened in West Virginia is a scandal, said coalition director Andy Igrejas, and "the second scandal is that the reform that's on the table now would do almost nothing to change that situation."
The new act would separate chemicals into two categories, high and low priority, and the Environmental Protection Agency would be allowed to conduct tests on ONLY the high-priority chemicals. States would have to follow the federal lead – a one-size-fits-all approach that the industry favors.
But the chemicals are categorized according to the hazards they pose if used properly, for their intended industrial purpose. As Demuth, the spokeswoman for Eastman Chemical, noted, "Eastman tested the mixture Crude MCHM for its intended use as an industrial chemical in a controlled industrial environment using a variety of toxicity tests."
Crude MCHM would probably be considered a LOW-priority chemical by the EPA, said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., ranking member on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The EPA would then be prohibited from subjecting the chemical to further tests, he said.
"That is a recipe for new regulatory and knowledge gaps that could prove just as harmful as the ones we're facing in West Virginia," Waxman said. But Charlotte Baker, spokeswoman for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said the two-tiered approach is sensible: "Of the thousands of chemicals out there, we need to focus on the ones that present the most risk." Chemical safety is not a West Virginia problem, it's a national problem, said Devra Davis, a founding member of the U.S. Chemical Safety Board and now president of an organization called Environmental Health Trust. "It would be farcical were it not so grave. This is a huge threat," she said. "In a sense, we all live downstream now."
THIS INFORMATION IS SO IMPORTANT, PEOPLE! The fact that "Chemicals in the United States are generally treated as innocent until proven guilty. A company does not have to prove that a chemical poses no health hazard in order to introduce it into the commercial market" is a key reason why we are all being poisoned! The factory that released this poison into the water in WV had not been inspected in 20 years. And we have seen many times before how it works when cancer rates increase dramatically in the area of the spill, they will say they "can't be sure" what the cause is. In fact, we are exposed to so many poisons due to the treachery of these federal agencies and the congressional traitors passing laws to keep the continuation of the poisoning, there is no way to know exactly what part all of these factors play in causing dis-ease. The insanity of "looking for the cure" while allowing the cause to continue is beyond the pale.
And if the above information is not enough to move you to DO SOMETHING about what is going on, I will close with 2 more examples of how the psycho cops are killing and maiming:
Proof that cops have a license to murder: http://www.infowars.com/kelly-thomas-verdict-cops-now-have-license-to-murder ""This is carte blanche to police officers to do whatever they want," said Ron Thomas, the victim's father and a retired Sheriff's Deputy."
