Does Pentagon want gene-altering insects to spread viruses in our farms, or to overthrow other nations?
If the atomic bomb wasn’t enough to possibly end the world, a new military-agricultural-complex program threatens to destroy humanity – not with a big bang, but with tiny bugs.
The Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) began genetically modifying insects last year. The goal – alter the bugs to carry gene-altering viruses. This was allegedly a method for farmers to fight climate change and disease. The infected bugs would fly over farms, land on crops and infect the plants with viruses that created new “resilient genes.” Continue reading →
Poison snake venom vial – $12 in India, $20,000 U.S. – and there’s even cheap vaccine for dogs, not people
Matt McMillan was bit by a copperhead snake, while he was camping in July at Fall River Lake, Kansas, and was flown to Via Christi Hospital in Wichita. He recalls “that was $47,600 for that 30-minute ride. To me that’s a lot of money.”
“The snake antivenom is the costly part. I guess that’s $20,000 to $30,000 a vial and I had four,” Matt explained.
Dr. Li Jia, at Via Christi Hospital said they used CroFab. “I don’t know the exact price but it’s very expensive,” he admitted.
McMillan’s insurance covered most of the bills. Otherwise, he would have owed $150,000 to $200,000 for care of one snakebite. Continue reading →
Gosnell – America’s worst serial killer exposed in movie kept in wraps for years to hide it from you
Five years and five months ago a West Philadelphia doctor was convicted of murder, and only avoided lethal injection through a plea deal. The press ignored the case – a hot potato – because it focused on a monster, who performed hundreds of illegal late-term abortions, covered up his crimes, and also killed many living babies who briefly survived his sloppy and unsanitary procedures.
This Friday night, the movie describing his crimes, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer“, will debut on 600-750 screens nationwide. The media, for the most part, will ignore the film.
Some may picket it, but anyone who goes to see it, will be horrified.
The film, produced in 2014, was blocked after Jeffrey Minehart, a judge on the case, sued the filmmakers. Minehart claimed that the movie (and a book) portrayed him as part of “Philadelphia’s liberal corrupt government.” Continue reading →
250 colleges take tens of millions from globalists, and you wonder why their “studies” make no sense
Hurricane Maria killed 64, 247 or 2,975 persons last year, depending on what source you believe – FEMA, the Puerto Rico government or the Koch-backed GWU’s Milken Institute School of Public Health.
As recently as Sept. 5, Puerto Rico officials had complete details on only 64 individuals, who died in the hurricane and its aftermath. At the same time. those same officials told CNN the actual total should be 247 – the number of families whose deaths FEMA confirmed to be storm-related.
These 247 families received a total of $565,882 in assistance from FEMA to cover some funeral and burial expenses, according to Dasha Castillo, an agency spokeswoman. To compound matters FEMA said there were another 2,350 cases that were still under review for FEMA burial aid.
What happened to the agreed official death toll of 247? Continue reading →
A half million will sleep on the streets tonight, but nothing seems to wake up Congress to this tragedy
The smoking guns in mass killings may not be just the weapons, but also the danger posed by the untreated mentally ill, who are responsible for ten percent of homicides in the U.S.A., according to the Treatment Advocacy Center.
And many of these mentally impaired are nearly dead, forgotten, sleeping in cardboard boxes, homeless because of a federal program launched in 1963 by JFK, that has become deadly, useless and exorbitant.
Our do-nothing Congress knows the danger, but the homeless don’t vote or give politicians payoffs.
The National Institute of Mental Health focuses on the problem this way: Continue reading →
Ask the Kochs, they’ll say you can’t buy happiness, but there’s a price to buy politicians in both parties
Brothers of a feather, Charles and David Koch, are once again spreading their wings, not in some benevolent embrace to aid their 120,000 workers worldwide, but instead to hover over the 2018 Congressional election and elect stooges who have pledged to kiss their bony talons.
That may seem a bit harsh. It’s not fashionable to criticize two craggy-faced zealots worth about $100 billion, who own the second largest (after Cargill) privately held firm in the U.S.A.
The Kochs will spend big bucks in 2018 – reportedly some $889 million – a lousy one percent of their total wealth, but enough to buy elections.
The Koch “investment” in 2016 was slightly less – $800 million, but compare that to $80,000 in 2016 ads by the Russians to influence the same election.
This proves American tycoons meddled best – the Kochs spent 10,000 times as much as cheapskate Vlad.
Grass fed beef called product of U.S.A. may be from cattle that never had one breath of air in America
“Where’s the beef…from?”
You’ll never know by just examining the supermarket package’s contents.
The problem started in 2015, when the B. Obama administration’s USDA decided to ignore food safety regulations, and rolled back Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) for both beef and pork products, allowing meat to be sold without disclosing its home country on the label.
The result: meat can now be sold without disclosing the home country on the label.
But it gets even worse.
Because of the way regulations were written, beef and pork products shipped to the United States, and just processed here, can be labeled “product of U.S.A.” Continue reading →
Illegal drug dealers, who are designated as major suppliers, will face the electric chair or gas chamber if President Donald Trump has his way. Our sometimes alert members of Congress voice agreement, now suddenly aware that criminals who sell opioids, like heroin and oxycodone, deserve more than slap-on-wrist fines or jail time.
Don’t bet on the death penalty just yet for these creatures. With decades of litigation possible, it’s easier to prescribe life in prison.
And speaking of prescribing, when are we going to deal with the legal drug dealers, whose companies have priced life-saving medicine in the stratosphere, so that only the very rich, or those with golden health plans, are able to afford?
An illegal drug dealer who hooks 200 victims deserves their fate.
A legal drug dealer who ruins the lives of millions deserves no less a prison term.
Which brings me to the example of Hepatitis C and the story of Marsha Lecour, who contracted the condition when she was four, after open heart surgery that exposed her to contaminated blood. Lecour is a native of Canada, the only nation, other than the U.S., which doesn’t have government-provided prescription drugs, where there is national healthcare for everything else.

That buy your green card pitch by Kushner’s sister in China renews controversy over visas for the rich
If you had $300 during the Civil War you could avoid that first Draft by just paying the dough and walking away. No money, you could go to jail or possibly become one of the 620,000 Americans killed on the battlefields.
When it comes to citizenship, the rich don’t need to climb that wall or swim that Rio Grande, now they just put up money, $500,000 or more to be exact, to invest in some project in the U.S. and agree that somehow that will create ten new jobs.
Some 85% of all these “investment citizens” are from China. The deal is called EB-5 Visa, and not only can you become an American, but so can the wife and children – all for the same price.
By this criterion, anyone with enough money can buy citizenship. Poor folks need not apply.
The program was extended last week by President Donald Trump, even though he said he had qualms about it during the campaign last year. The day after he signed the extension, the Kushner organization was in Beijing, selling investments in the luxury apartment building, One Journal Square, that is set to be built next year in Jersey City. A brochure blasted:
“Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”
It’s as easy as: one, two, three!
The 2018 Donald Trump Federal Budget can be balanced, even when including nearly $54 billion in increased Defense Department spending, and not one federal department would require any cuts in spending.
These are the proposed $54 billion in department cuts that would not have to take effect under my 123 Plan:
Agriculture 2018 Budget
- Eliminates $500 million Water and Wastewater loan/grant program
- Eliminates $200 million McGovern-Dole International Food for Education program
- Cuts Women, Infants and Children nutrition assistance from $6.4 billion to $6.2 billion
- Unspecified staff reductions at USDA service center agencies
- Cuts $95 million from Rural Business and Cooperative Service
