MS63 $20 ST. GAUDENS
$20 Saint-Gaudens double eagles are often considered one of the most beautiful of all U.S. gold coins. Minted from 1907 to 1933, $20 Saints were the crucial building blocks of expanding U.S. financial power early 20th century. In choice Mint State 63, they combine a beautiful design, true scarcity, large gold content, and low prices. Today, they are trading with premiums over gold melt near historic lows, making them an excellent value for bulk gold buyers.
Out of an original mintage of more than 60 million, most have been lost to the ravages of time and the melting pot. Only 536,318 survivors are known in choice Mint State 63 condition (PCGS + NGC, 07/25/2012). This true scarcity can mean higher premiums during periods of increased demand.
When premiums drop as low as they are today, these coins are an opportunity that should not be passed up!
• Premiums rebounding from under 20%. Average premium over the past 10 years is 45%.
• Huge upside potential. Last time premiums were under 20%, they rocketed over 101% in 10 months.
• Better than bullion. They offer all the advantages of bullion plus true scarcity, increased profit potential, and true financial privacy.

"Only buy something that you'd be perfectly happy to hold
if the market shut down for 10 years."—Warren Buffett
“What investment would you dare to hold
for 10 years—other than gold?”—Alfred Adask
by Alfred Adask
Most people who try to read books on economics come away with a single thought: these economists must be really, really smart ‘cuz I can’t understand a word they say.
The world has thousands of economists. Some study the past, but the ultimate object of economics is to predict the future. If we know what the economy is about to do, we also know how to invest and therefore make a fortune.
But there’s a problem. No matter how incomprehensibly bright economists may be, they’re not very good at their fundamental job: predicting the future.
For example, in the past decade,
1) Only a handful of economist predicted the financial crash of A.D. 2007-08.
There’s a fundamental reason why the “dismal science” provides unreliable predictions: it’s been highly politicized. As every politician knows, “It’s the economy, stupid.” The public is so fixated on the “economy,” that anyone who wants to be reelected knows that they must maintain a strong economy—or, if need be, the illusion of a strong economy.
2) Since A.D. 2008, most economists predicted a sharp "V"-shaped sustained economic recovery that has, so far, been illusory. Conversely, the vast majority of economists failed to predict the economic stagnation that’s persisted ever since.
3) Most economists failed to predict the sharp global decline that’s becoming a global depression.
The problem of politicization can be seen in two observations:
1) The economy is so dependent on consumer “confidence” that the “science” of economics has become subjective. Any serious mention of objective reality that might panic the “masses” and collapse the economy is avoided. Government officials and economists are therefore inclined to lie in order to support an unrealistically optimistic view of the “economy”.
As a result, the “science of economics” and “political science” have become inextricably confused.
2) Economic data is now “officially” falsified to support government’s assurances that all is well. Even economic predictions based on honest data are unreliable, but predictions based on officially falsified data can’t possibly result in accurate predictions.
I don’t mind the confusion and attendant impediments because:
1) I’m not an economist;
This is not to suggest that my predictions are any more accurate than those of recognized “economists”. But if my predictions aren’t any better, they’re surely not much worse. More, insofar as I try to rely on common sense (which, as you know, ain’t so “common”), my premises aren’t obfuscated by mathematics or convoluted language, my conclusions are fairly obvious (some might say “simplistic”), and my arguments are easily understood (or, if necessary, easily rejected) by most readers.
2) I’d rather we faced the truth now, even if it precipitated an economic depression; and
3) When the “science” of economics falters due to institutionalized lies and “politically correct” premises, it opens the door to predictions based on common sense.
So, as I gaze into my crystal bowling ball, what major premises do I see that will be most determinative for our economic future?
1) The truth will out.
Sooner or later—maybe before an economic collapse is obvious, maybe after the collapse is too far gone to be denied—the government’s unrealistic optimism will be recognized by most Americans as “official lies” and rejected. Market manipulation will cease. The “free” market will reassert itself. We may even see politicians forced to tell the truth.
Our economy is based on so many lies that when we hit our “moment of truth,” all hell will break loose. The public (which formerly delighted in government’s “sweet, sweet lies”) will be outraged when they’re forced to face the unpleasant truth: there’s no free lunch. I.e., folks will howl when they find themselves liable to pay for the “free” benefits previously provided by government.
Those who’ve depended on government welfare and subsidies will demand that someone be held accountable for all the (failed) lies. Scapegoats will be found. Heads will roll. Some politicians and even rich people may be jailed. The potential for political revolution will be great.
2) The debt is too great to be repaid.
The official national debt is $16 trillion—about $50,000 for every man, woman and child. Technically, that debt might be paid in full, but only after Americans were subjected to at least five years of austerity and Greece-like riots.
However, John Williams (Shadowstats.com) calculates that an honest measure of the national debt may be $85 trillion—about $275,000 for every man, woman and child. That debt can’t ever be paid in full, or even by half. Common sense sez there’s no way to squeeze $275,000 out of each American (over $1 million from the average family of four) simply because the people don’t have sufficient assets to pay such bills. If I had to bet, I’d predict that at least 80% (and perhaps 90%) of that debt can’t be paid and therefore won’t be paid. If so, at least 80% of the current value of existing treasury bonds will be repudiated. Those holding US bonds will lose their assets.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has calculated that the entire funded and unfunded national debt is about $202 trillion—about $650,000 for every man, woman and child. If it’s impossible to pay the national debt as calculated by John Williams, it’s doubly impossible to repay the national debt calculated by the CBO—and doubly certain that those holding paper debt-instruments are going to lose their assets.
3) Government wants inflation—except in presidential election years (see Minor Premise # A , below).
For big government to survive and continue to borrow, the existing national debt must be largely repudiated. I see only three ways to repudiate the national debt:
1) Admit national bankruptcy (which is true), openly repudiate much of the existing debt and rebuild the economy from scratch.
Declaring national bankruptcy and killing the creditors would destroy the economy—at least temporarily. Destroying the economy is both pointless and dangerous. The fundamental idea of “economics” is to control the people. If an economy collapses or is intentionally destroyed, economic controls disappear. In the resulting chaos, even the rich and powerful (who seek to rule by means of economic controls) become vulnerable to violent retribution. The Powers That Be may want an economic decline, but they shouldn’t want an economic collapse.
2) Cause significant inflation—which will allow the existing debt to be repaid with cheaper dollars and thereby “secretly” diminish the value of the existing debt. (I.e., we’ll repay $16 trillion, but that $16 trillion may only have $8 trillion in purchasing power.)
3) Kill the creditors.
The only remaining strategy that might get us out from under the massive, unpayable debt and still allow the economy to survive, is inflation—government’s most benign and “secret” strategy for reducing the unpayable debt. Therefore, I expect to see significant inflation—probably over 10% a year—starting as early as A.D. 2013.
4) One man’s debt is another man’s asset.
If I borrow $100,000, I’m burdened by a debt for that amount. But someone else will be holding a paper debt-instrument bearing my signature that they regard as a $100,000 asset. My debt will be his paper asset. But if I can’t pay my debt, his paper asset is wiped out.
We live in an economy where most debts (see Major Premise #2, supra) can’t and therefore won’t be paid. The conclusion is inescapable: most paper “assets” will be rendered largely worthless by inflation or outright repudiation. Those holding their wealth in the form of paper debt instruments will lose their assets.
• Gazing further into my crystal bowling ball, I also see some Minor Premises:
A) A.D. 2012 is a presidential election year.
A.D. 2012 has been one of the worst years for gold since A.D. 2000. Since November 2nd, A.D. 2011 until today, the price of gold has fallen from $1731 to today’s $1677—a 3% loss that’s far below the 18% average annual increase of the past twelve years.
The last time we saw a similarly poor performance for gold was A.D. 2008 when price of gold fell from $806 on November 2nd, A.D. 2007 to $733 on November 2nd, A.D. 2008—a 9% loss.
But A.D. 2008 and A.D. 2012 have a common denominator: both were presidential election years. It may strain my claim to common sense, but I doubt that these declines in the price of gold were coincidental. Instead, I suspect that presidential election-year declines are politically motivated and intentional.
Insofar as it’s true that “it’s the economy, stupid,” incumbent politicians don’t want to seek reelection in a bad economy. The vast majority of Americans are bewildered by the “science” of economics and know nothing of M3, U6 or the velocity of money. However, the people absolutely understand if the prices of food and fuel are rising. Rising food and fuel prices make folks angry. Angry folks don’t vote for incumbents. Therefore incumbents have a vested interest in pacifying the voters with low food and fuel costs—especially in presidential election years.
Crude oil is a major component of fertilizer and the fuel costs associated with growing and transporting food. Thus, when the price of crude rises, so do the prices of food and fuel.
The link between the prices of gold and crude oil isn’t absolute, but there’s a strong correlation. When gold goes up, so does crude oil. Usually. When gold goes down, so does crude. Usually. Therefore, I suspect that incumbent politicians have a vested interest in suppressing the prices of gold and crude in order to hold down the prices of food and fuel in election years.
Admittedly, the prices of gold, crude, food and fuel are not suppressed in off-year elections. But, under Major Premise #3, the government’s primary objective is to inflate the currency to escape the debt. Out of every four years, they may allow deflation (falling prices of gold, crude, food and fuel) during one presidential election year—but the other three years should be marked by inflation, inflation, inflation.
If this minor premise is correct, we can expect to see the price of gold rise through A.D. 2013, 2014 and 2015. Likewise, during the next presidential election year (A.D. 2016) we can expect another severe “correction” in the price of gold.
B) The election follies of A.D. 2012 will end in less than a week.
Minor Premise # A (the price of gold is artificially reduced in recent presidential election years) is supported by the fact that after falling 9% in the twelve months prior to the 2008 election, gold shot up $148 to $881 by the December 31st, 2008. That was a 20% rise in the price of gold in just two months after the A.D. 2008 presidential election.
If Minor Premise #A is valid, we can expect the rate of inflation and the price of gold to also increase dramatically after this year’s presidential election.
Although a 20% rise (to $2,000/ounce) in the next two months is not unprecedented or impossible, I’m not predicting that gold will jump another 20% by the end of this year. But if my Minor Premise #A is valid, I expect the price of gold to rise at least 10% to $1850 by year’s end.
(Of course, if the price of gold doesn’t rise over the balance of this year, my claim to common sense will be discredited. On the other hand, if the price does rise as I predict, it’ll be proof that I have enough horse sense to write for the Farmer’s Almanac.)
C) The “fiscal cliff” cometh in January of A.D. 2013.
The “fiscal cliff” refers to a series of laws that mandate tax increases and federal government spending cuts that should go into effect in the first week of January, A.D. 2013.
The “fiscal cliff” laws are intended to reduce government’s deficit spending, but are also projected to cause a recession in the first half of A.D. 2013.
The big question is whether Congress will allow some or all of the fiscal cliff laws to go into effect this coming January or if they’ll vote to suspend those laws.
Given that 1) A.D. 2013 is not an election year, politicians can act without regard to voter anger; and 2) some attempt (no matter how futile) must be made to deal with the debt and annual deficit, I predict that all or most of the fiscal cliff laws will be allowed to go into effect in January.
If so, the recession that some still deny will become undeniable in first quarter of next year.
D) The current economic depression is global.
We are heading into a global depression similar to that seen in the 1930s. No nation is immune. No nation sufficiently strong or prosperous to prevent or evade a coming global depression. No nation strong enough to save the global economy or other nationals economies.
E) The price of gold may be inhibited, but not truly suppressed. (see Major Premise #3—Government Wants Inflation.) Some people argue that the prices of gold and silver have been artificially suppressed. I believe their arguments. But it’s important to note that the price of gold has increased by an average off 18% per year since A.D. 2000.
Q: How do we square the argument that the price of gold has been suppressed with the fact that the price has increased by an average of 18% per year for over a decade?
A: See Major Premise #3—Government Wants Inflation.
Because government wants inflation, it must therefore allow the price of gold to rise. There can’t be any convincing inflation of the dollar unless the price of gold is also rising.
However, government does not want uncontrolled inflation and therefore will probably not allow gold to spike more than 20% per year. Thus, the price of gold is both rising and suppressed in that it’s not rising as dramatically as it might in a truly “free” (unmanipulated) market.
A.D. 2012 is nearly over. Not much left to happen except a presidential election that’ll give a whole new meaning to “the lesser of two evils” and a couple of possible wars in the Middle East. All in all (except for a rising price of gold), the next two months should be dull.
But next year, A.D. 2013—in the sense of the ancient Chinese curse “may you live in interesting times”—promises to be a lot more “interesting”.
President Obama has been recorded promising the President of Russia that once he’s reelected, he’ll be free to do a lot of things that he was prohibited from doing in his first term. Apparently, Obama has some surprises up his sleeve. So, if Obama is reelected, we might expect more Executive Orders, more wars (of course) from the President who won the Nobel Peace Prize for being black, possible gun control efforts, higher taxes, income redistribution from the productive (but not the rich, of course) to the non-productive, and even more globalism. I’m sure I’ll enjoy four more years of Obama even more than I enjoyed the first four.
On the other hand, if Romney is elected, we might expect him to fight valiantly to keep the world safe for the plutocrats. I fully expect to enjoy four years of Romney just as much as I enjoyed the last four years of G.W. Bush.
But, no matter who’s elected this month, we’re headed into an obvious recession and probable depression in A.D. 2013. Unemployment will rise and the economy will slow. But, based on Major Premise #3—Government Wants Inflation to reduce the national debt—prices will rise.
We are about to enter the worst of all possible economic circumstances: stagflation—a slowing economy marked by rising prices. So long as inflation can be precipitated, the price of gold will rise.
If there’s a bright side in the next few years, it’ll be the rising price of gold in A.D. 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Running Out – A Prepper's Worst Nightmare
By Survivalists Sheila & Dan Gendron
September is "National Preparedness Month". The one thing left out of all the hype for this new "celebration" (yes, I've read an ad on a alternative news web site that said "Celebrate [9/11] with a 20% discount...")is, for how long do you need to be "prepared"? You have to understand that you cannot buy enough toilet paper to save your fanny.
Say you're one of the smart ones who has been prepared for whatever is coming down the pike to survive through. You're already set up in a remote location, gotten your dwelling built, and you have separated yourself and your family from"normal society (the system)". You've been studying and experimenting with gardens, but haven't perfected the art yet. You haven't had a need for money in a year or two, because you've been living off your well-stocked larder for that time. Suddenly, and seemingly all at once, things in that larder begin to run out. Now what do you do???
When the baking powder runs out, you learn to make flat pancakes. When your chickens aren't laying to put eggs in the pancakes, you make breads instead (and a pot of chicken soup here and there). When the flour runs out, you grind rice and get creative with it. When the rice runs out, you start eating lentil soup, lentil burgers, lentil chili (even though your chili powder ran out a month ago, too) – and you lose a lot of weight.
Just take a trip into town to re-supply? Well, maybe that's ok for now, while there still is some semblance of an economy. But what will you do if that economy – and society – have completely collapsed and there are no stores in which to shop? Prepping is a great way to start to get you mentally ready for separating from the current average urban/suburban lifestyle. After "prepping" comes real survival.
You may have to check out the local flora for edible items. Do you know how to test a plant to see if it is poisonous? (Rub it on your arm and look for a rash, rub it on your gums and check for tingling... There's much more to it. Here is a site you may want to check out http://wikihow.com/test-if-a-plant-is-edible. You may need to go hunting. Do you know how to " field dress" an animal? Do you know where to shoot? Do you know how to shoot?
I'm not talking about being a weekend warrior. I'm not even talking about going on an extended hunting trip. I'm talking about learning to live a new way, a way that includes new ways to find food other than going to the local supermarket. A way that includes using washable rags instead of disposable toilet paper. The idea may be frightening to many – probably most – of you. You've been taught that there is only one way to live and that is the consumerist life. A sure sign of success is how much "stuff" you have. Well, in the near future, success may be boiled down to did you eat today, did you feed your family today, did you sleep inside, out of the cold last night?
With all the new "preparedness" consumables available, here is one thing you can't stock up on: TIME. Are you running out of time? Preparedness not only means buying as much "prepper stuff" as you can, it means watching world events so you will know 1) what you are prepping for and; 2) when you are prepping for. Believe me, it's not easy to look at everything going wrong with the world these days – economies in shambles, major war looming, wacky weather, violent solar activity. But you must gather up your skirts and stare it in the face, or why bother prepping?
So go ahead and get that extra bag of rice or beans at every trip to the grocery store. But have a plan, start educating yourself about what to do when that runs out.

Modifying organisms is a way of modifying the world. The scientific, business and political communities are organized to cross engineer that which is natural also known as genetically modify. There are six companies on the planet involved in genetic engineering and 90% are controlled by Monsanto. Currently all soy is GM and is included in almost all processed foods including baby and dog food. The gamble is if natural creation such as humans, animals, insects, soil and plants will be able to adapt or simply perish? The news has recently reported the latest victims of the GM squad; coffee and cow's milk. Instead of processing coffee beans after harvesting to decaffeinate them, they are genetically modifying the beans to be decaffeinated from the start. Children allergic to cow's milk have been growing in numbers they have cloned a cow (without a tail) to make GM milk without the allergens in it. Why the push to produce GM foods? We are told the GM crops with built-in pesticides will obliterate starvation from the planet. Scientists have exposed that to be false.
CAN DNA CHANGE YOUR MOOD?
Research from Canada published in the journal of Biological Psychiatry found that proteins can modify DNA and affect your mood. The Canadian study wanted to find out why depressed individuals commit suicide and found that protein chemicals in the brain can modify mood called epigenomic regulation. http://psychcentral.com/news/2008/07/31/can-depression-change-your-dna/2678.html
What do you suppose will happen to humans who consume lettuce spiced with spider DNA? We are told the lettuce will provide more vitamin C with spider DNA in it. Tomato is spliced with fish genes to make them more resistant to cold and won't freeze. With food modification changing nutrition and protein we have to ask what kind of impact will that have on the 40,0000 genes in each human cell? Chemical modification in the brain or other areas of the body may be difficult or impossible to reverse. The Alliance for Natural Health reports that genetically engineered food becomes part of the bacteria in the human digestive tract. So, if Monsanto is altering seeds for crops to grow producing their own insecticides and pesticides; then these organisms will become part of the human gut and produce these chemicals continuously. Even after stopping the consumption of GM foods, these proteins are already deposited. This was based on a limited human study using GM soy http://www.anh-usa.org/genetically-engineered-food-alters-our-digestive-systems/
OUR POOR PLANTS
The Institute for Responsible Technology reports that the genetic engineering process causes "massive collateral damage" throughout the plant's DNA. Think about what the scientists are doing. They are taking God's copyright and modifying it to take possession. Not a good idea to steel from God. The process of modifying genes will delete or permanently turn off or on proteins creating hundreds of changes. Inserting a foreign gene can damage or rearrange proteins and trigger allergies or promote diseases such as cancer. Remember the recent two-year French study feeding rats Monsanto's corn and they grew massive cancerous tumors and died young http://truth-out.org/news/item/11639-french-study-finds-tumors-and-organ-damage-in-rats-fed-monsanto-corn. The problem having GM genes living and reproducing inside our gut is it can create more antibiotic-resistant diseases. The Bt toxins in GM foods making them pesticide factories can make us pesticide factories as well and penetrate our bloodstream (93%) and also the unborn babies (80%). Don't forget the Canadian study I just mentioned because there is great concern in the scientific community that GM foods will alter our human DNA and brain chemicals causing more people to become schizophrenic or have various mood disorders. There is also the concern that the GM foods will exacerbate this problem in people already diagnosed with emotional disorders. There is also the concern that GM foods will promote leaky gut syndrome making us susceptible to various diseases.
Allergies are on the rise in the US and spiked by 50% with the introduction of GM soy in the UK . Nothing was done. In 1989 Japan had an outbreak of eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome which was traced to a Japanese company which produced a tryptophan supplement using their genetically engineered bacteria. You need to steer clear of GM bacteria, especially in the new generation of yogurt. Your herbal products have stricter purity standards than the genetically engineered products. One of the first scientists to speak out against genetic engineering is the late George Wald.
"Recombinant DNA technology (genetic engineering) faces our society with problems unprecedented, not only in the history of science, but of life on the Earth. Now whole new proteins will be transposed overnight into wholly new associations, with consequences no one can foretell, either for the host organism or their neighbors. For going ahead in this direction may not only be unwise but dangerous. Potentially, it could breed new animal and plant diseases, new sources of cancer and novel epidemics." George Wald, Nobel Laureate in Medicine or Physiology 1967
SCIENTISTS SPEAK OUT
Some scientists have been sounding the alarm and paying the price. Biochemist Arpad Pusztai worked in the field of genetic engineering at Scotland 's Rowett Research Institute. He worked on the GM potato pumped full of Bt toxin. He and his team discovered that what they were told about the expected outcome was in direct conflict to their results. The GM potato caused severe health damage in lab rats. They released the information to the news networks and paid the unemployment price for betraying their industry and government-backed sponsors. Some of the changes Pusztai noted in the lab animals were; shrinking kidneys, changes in liver, spleen and malignant tissues, hemorrhages in kidneys and intestine. Brain function was also altered affecting memory and learning. Researchers in Egypt also corroborated Pusztai's findings involving GM soy, corn, wheat and canola http://www.naturalnews.com/037665_GMO_scientists_organ_damage.html.
WHERE THIS LEADS
The GM food industry is designed solely to establish a new food source in order to control the masses through food. The intent is to phase out the organic food source making it as illegal as marijuana. You see precursors of this with certain townships across American implementing laws outlawing organic gardening. These laws are communicated as to protect the public from salmonella. The Chemtrail phenomenon has been said to control the weather. If that can be accomplished; control the rain to fall only on areas with compliant with GM crops or make the rain suitable only for GM crops and toxic to organic, then you could control masses of people through food and water. I will be interviewing environmental safety and health expert Therese Aigner on Herb Talk Saturday 10/27/12 at 7 am on GCN about this topic. If you miss the live broadcast, check the archives later for this show.
THE ROAD WE'RE ON
If the genetic engineering industries are hell bent on controlling people through food then in-home gardening may be worth looking into. Organic heirloom seeds will be worth their weight in gold. Don't forget about your medicinal herb garden seeds as well. It couldn't hurt to pick up several packages of these seeds and practice growing them.
Things have picked up speed and it becomes more of a challenge to get prepared. Do what you can and stock your medicinal herbs for colds, flu, pain, inflammation, blood pressure, allergies and more.

Kombucha tea is a simple combination of tea, sugar, water, and starter culture which has been used for thousands of years dating back to 221 B.C. during the Chinese empire of the Tsin-Dynasty where they called it "the remedy for immortality." It was later brought to Japan by Dr. Kombu to treat the Japanese emperor, Inkyo, for digestive problems. This unique, fermented tea has been used for millennia to lower blood pressure, improve digestion, and boost the immune system. It is alkaline-forming, simple to brew, and extremely inexpensive.
Numerous scientific studies have shown that kombucha tea helps populate the gut with probiotics (beneficial bacteria), enhances the immune system, fights off deadly pathogens, and protects vital organs. A 2011 study published inthe journal "Pathophysiology" found that kombucha helps protect liver cells from damage. One cell-based study printed in the June 2012 issue of the journal Swiss Society of Food Science and Technology, asserts that kombucha "has prophylactic and therapeutic properties" including anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal effects. Its authors speculate that kombucha " may be very healthful" in combating yeast infections, thrush, and other forms of candidiasis.http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0023643812000023
Like yogurt, kombucha contains healthy bacteria in the form of Lactobacillus Acidophilus, as well as a dozen other probiotic strains. It also contains a wide range of organic acids, enzymes, and vitamins (particularly B1, B2, B6 and B12) which provide the body with energy, help to process fats and proteins, and which are vital for the nervous system. Interestingly, when kombucha tea is made correctly, all the sugars are fully converted into organic acids during fermentation, enabling Kombucha tea to be is safely drunk by diabetics and Candida sufferers.
Also, glucuronic acid (a product of the oxidation process of glucose) is one of the more noteworthy constituents of kombucha culture. As a detoxifying agent, it is one of the few substances that can help detoxify herbicides, pesticides, plastics and resins. It literally "kidnaps" the phenols in the liver which are then eliminated easily by the kidneys. Another byproduct of glucuronic acid are the glucosamines (structures associated with cartilage and collagen), thus kombucha has been shown to be effective for reducing wrinkles (due to collagen) and reducing arthritis symptoms (due to replenishing cartilage and joint fluid).
You may have heard about the recent case of a Newport, California student being suspended from school for bringing a bottle of kombucha tea. Appartently, the "lunch brigade Nazis" were somehow able to see through the piles of GMO corn muffins and pink-slime chicken nuggets when they noticed the "dangerous" bottle of kombucha tea and reported the boy to the vice principal, who then called the police, claiming that the kombucha violated the "no-drugs-no-alcohol" policy. The boy was then interrogated for several hours by the cop (without parental notification or legal representation) who ignorantly and incorrectly told the boy that kombucha was illegal and dangerous to mix with medicines or antibiotics. Then (after eating a dozen donuts) the cop asked him if and what kind of medications he was taking.
The boy ended up spending the entire day in the school office and then was suspended for 5 days for violating the school's drug and alcohol policy. Most outrageously, the vice principal told the boy that he may have to transfer out of that school and she even tried to enroll him in an alcoholics class for teens!http://newportbeach.patch.com/articles/lunchbox-tea-lands-student-in-hot-water
One might say, "technically, kombucha does contain alcohol, so this was an appropriate reaction." HONK! WRONG! Kombucha is nothing more than a fermented tea with benefits of probiotics, enzymes, amino acids, and vitamins. While it can contain 0.5% ethanol alcohol (classified as non-alcoholic), the alcohol that is produced gets converted into acetic acid. You may remember the FDA calling for kombucha to be removed from store shelves claiming it contained alcohol. Of course they failed and kombucha is still available at most grocery stores and can be purchased by any kid in the USA! What will they go after next? Yogurt? Sour Kraut? Apple cider?
So, to sum up this latest absurd case of the "Nanny State Gone Wild":
• It's OK for the school to serve "pink slime" nuggets, "student sterilizing" GMO foods, antibiotic-laden milk products, cancer-causing sodas, and sugar-filled fruit drinks.
• It's NOT allowed for students to bring healthy, life-promoting foods (like kombucha) to school, and if you do, then you will be suspended and might even be forced to transfer schools.
"Now put down that bottle of Kombucha, little boy, and back away slowly with your hands on your head "

What's Ailing America?
The Wizard of OZ
by Rebecca Carley, MD
It is, of course, self evident that the mainstream media routinely tells lies to our vision on tel lie vision, and there is a reason they call it PROGRAMMING. In fact, as mentioned in my newsletter entitled "What's Ailing America? Vaccine propaganda throughout the media" (newsletter # 17), I gave the following link (http://foxnewsboycott.com/resources/fox-can-lie-lawsuit ) regarding a court decision which states the media CAN lie, and can even fire reporters who refuse to report lies to the public when ordered to do so. This court decision is a very important weapon of truth that all of you can share with your mind controlled friends and family as you gather for the holidays a very important "conversation starter" that can help to possibly bring up other topics to enlighten a critical mass of people to "just say no" and finally stop the psychopaths who are destroying our health, our planet, and everything that matters.
One show I try to monitor on a regular basis is "The Dr. OZ show". Of course, Oprah Winfrey "discovered" the wizard of Oz and crowned him "America's doctor" before her show went off the air; in fact, her time slot was replaced with the Oz show. As it is becoming more and more obvious to Americans with working brain cells that treatments by Big Pharma are causing death and disease (but curing nothing), how ingenious it was to bring forth the white coat (who rarely wears a white coat) to pretend that main stream medicine embraces "natural" solutions, and even more ridiculous that medical doctors learn anything about nutrition or "alternative" therapies when they are training. It is so obvious that he is being used to get Americans (especially women) to trust this shill for big pharma so that when he inserts his disinfo amongst the truth he does tell, people will lap it up.
You can find one of his biographies athttp://www.tvguide.com/celebrities/mehmet-oz/bio/215510 I found it very interesting that he "took time off from medical school to serve in the Turkish army in order to retain his dual citizenship". I find it astounding that he just "happens" to have the last name of "Oz". It is obvious that this name is an inside joke regarding his present job of "steering the herd" to trust mainstream medicine. He also appears on many other "talk shows" as a medical "expert", and was involved with a show called "NY MED" which aired on ABC and made it appear that the doctors at his hospital were compassionate healers who did all they could to help the public. WHAT A JOKE. (The book that I am working on will pull back the curtain and expose what the wizard is NOT telling you goes on in hospitals). If you have the ability to use critical thinking, you can easily see the agenda for example, the 1st NY Med show centered on a seventh day adventist man who was admitted into the hospital with alleged measles BECAUSE he never received the MMR vaccine. The 2nd show spent the entire hour pushing organ donation. I will do a whole newsletter on this topic in the future, but for now I strongly suggest that you NOT sign any forms that you want to become an organ donor because if you end up in the hospital and you have a rare blood type or are a match for a wealthy person in need of an organ, I assure you will end up as a donor. The 3rd show was especially revealing, as the cardiothoracic chief complained on camera that the residents work ONLY 80 (as opposed to 120) hours/week. This is how it was when I was a surgery resident in the late 1980's and early 1990's, and the psychopaths at the top loved to watch young residents suffer from sleep deprivation, falling asleep while standing at the operating room table and making terrible mistakes in many areas. Laws have been passed to restrict the hours that medical resident slave work units can work/week (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1169274 ), but hospitals can greatly increase profits by scheduling doctors in training to work ridiculously long numbers of hours, and there is no way to adequately oversee compliance.
After the summer break, there was a commercial for the new season of "The Dr Oz show" (which began on September 10, 2012) which asked the question "Can one show really save your life? YES the Dr Oz show! The commercial claimed the following:
9,281 life saving tips
73 heart attacks prevented
645 healthy recipes
266 warning signs
616 embarrassing questions answered
5 cancers caught early
94 sex lives sparked
$29,450.84 dollars saved
7 cases of diabetes reversed
327,366 bellies flattened
Over 3 million pounds lost
110 HEALTH MYTHS BUSTED .
The commercial for the upcoming season ended by stating that "There's only one show with simple plans and fast results FROM THE DOCTOR YOU TRUST!"
This obvious programming (mind control) of the public is most evident when the wizard does shows where he "busts health myths"; especially the alleged "myth" that you can get the flu from the flu vaccine (in fact, the best way to make sure you get the flu IS to get the flu vaccine). On 10/2/12, he had a panel of doctors on with him, including pediatrician Dr Richard Besser who he introduced as his medical school classmate that previously worked for the CDC but is now THE CHIEF MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT FOR ABC! (So now the wizard is being used to get his listeners to beLIEve whatever the CDC minion/vaccine pusher has to say as well). This is psyops of the HIGHEST order.
What becomes very obvious from watching this show is that he uses his suggestions of supplements and herbs as a way to make viewers beLIEve that he is interested in their health. In fact, once you see what he promotes (vaccines, electroshock therapy, the "cheapest" supplements you can find, etc.,) it becomes obvious that any legitimate suggestions he does give will never make a serious difference in restoration of health care as long as people keep getting their vaccinations, etc. (As I have mentioned before, the wizard has financial investments in vaccine companies (http://www.naturalnews.com/027451_vaccine_RealAge_technology.html). Of course, this conflict of interest is never exposed on his show.
Another very OBVIOUS lie he is telling the public is that microwave ovens are a GREAT way to cook their food. He has many guests who come on to make recipes, and in almost all cases he pushes that the food be microwaved. If you are not aware of how dangerous microwaved food is, please go to http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/health-hazards-to-know-about/microwave-ovens-the-proven-dangers . You can also tune into my internet radio show this Sunday, 11/4/12 onwww.thesechangingtimezradio.ning.com at 12 noon EST to learn how YOU are being microwaved as well
