Regional, World War Possible As Israel Continues To Provoke Full Scale Confrontation With Syria

The war in Syria is heating up yet again with signs that the conflict may soon be about to take greater international dimensions. This is all due to greater Israeli participation and aggression in Syria against the Syrian military and on the behalf of terrorist organizations fighting against the Syrian government. The questions that remain, however, are whether or not the Israelis are willing to tempt the resolve of the anti-terrorist coalition of Syria, Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia and how steadfast that resolve of those powers might actually be.

In the past week, we have seen an escalation in the Syrian conflict the likes of which we have not seen in decades in terms of Israeli-Syrian tensions as well as the potential for a clash of nuclear world powers in the Middle East as a combat theatre

After a mobilization of U.S. troops near Manbij – designed to prevent the Syrian military from retaking the city and as a means to stop combat between Turkish and Kurdish forces – Israel launched an air attack on Syrian targets near Palmyra, the Zionist settler state’s furthest penetration into Syria yet. Israel claimed it was bombing an Iranian-Hezbollah weapons convoy while the Syrian government claimed Israel had targeted Syrian military positions who were in the process of combating ISIS. Regardless, Israel clearly violated international law and the concept of national sovereignty.

This time, however, Israel was not able to bomb and bail as they have done eleven times in the past as Syrian air defense systems were mobilized and an Israeli jet shot down as a result. This shoot down was apparently launched after the Syrian military informed the Russian military of its intention to shoot the Israeli planes down. It is assumed that the Russians did not object to the use of force.

Donbass, East Ukraine On Its Way To Becoming Own Country By Default

After having fallen prey to Western machinations of destabilization and civil war, it is apparent that there may now be irreparable differences between the East and West portions of Ukraine. With the East of Ukraine more in line with Russia and the West more in line with Western Europe, all compounded by years of civil war and outright persecution and atrocities committed by the fascist Ukrainian forces, the DPR and LPR are showing signs of going their separate ways and breaking away from West Ukraine in a more final fashion.

When Crimea voted to reunite with Russia after a long separation, many suspected the DPR and LPR would follow suit. In fact, there was a movement within both republics to do the same. However, geopolitical and diplomatic concerns on the part of Russia prevented such a vote from ever solidifying a “reunification” with Russia.

A vote to reunify with Russia in the same fashion as Crimea would have no doubt caused a diplomatic emergency between Russia and the warmongering West. Indeed, it may have even caused military confrontation. However, after time passed and the impasse between East and West Ukraine has become more pronounced, it appears that East Ukraine is making moves toward becoming its own country even without formal recognition. East Ukraine – DPR and LPR (Donbass)– may very well become their own nation by default and by natural progression of events.

Eastern Ukraine (Donbass) has, for at least a year, begun working on setting up the framework of a governmental system, complete with a political framework, the seizing of banks, and the operation of various industries. Greater centralized military structure, as necessitated by the current conflict, has also become a reality.

Monsanto Launches War On Scientists, Says Science Will Ruin Their Business

monsanto scienceBrandon Turbeville
March 17, 2017

A new battle is now raging over glyphosate (Roundup weed killer) on the heels of the California decision to require a cancer warning on the pesticide at the state level.

Faced with having to defend a proven danger to public health in a court of law, as well as having to face tighter scrutiny in the EU, the chemical industry is lashing out at some members of the scientific community who dare to say what is. Namely, that glyphosate is detrimental to human health and the environment.

The spearhead of the new battle strategy, is the Campaign for Accuracy in Public Health Research (CAPHR). While CAPHR has such a nice sounding name to it, it was actually formed in February 2017 by the American Chemistry Council, an umbrella group representing the chemical industry whose membership includes Monsanto as well as other major, industrial chemical companies.

The purpose of the CAPHR is essentially to combat and discredit the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) which is a unit of the World Health Organization. Back in March 2015, an IARC scientific team declared glyphosate to be a “probable human carcinogen.” The declaration came after an extensive review of the research published on the subject.

Ever since, Monsanto and other multi-national chemical giants have gone after the IARC. Monsanto and friends have made demands, engaged in its typical bullying and threats and has even attempted legal maneuvers to get its way.

One of these methods included lobbying the U.S. House of Representatives to cut funding to the IARC. While one can scarcely argue with the need to reduce the United States’ unwieldy and disproportionate funding of the United Nations and related UN organizations, Monsanto is lobbying to destroy the IARC simply because the IARC represents a threat to a portion of its profits.

Did The U.S. Really Bomb A Mosque In Syria? Many Factors At Play In Latest Reports

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 17, 2017

If new reports are accurate, the Trump administration is now doing all it can to not only continue Obama’s war crimes in Syria but apparently to do so in the most visible fashion possible. Only a few days after mobilizing U.S. troops in Northern Syria near Manbij, the United States has allegedly launched airstrikes in al-Jineh under the guise of targeting terrorist organization, Ahrar al-Sham, an al-Qaeda affiliate. Instead of hitting terrorists, however, reports are suggesting that the U.S. simply blew up a mosque, killing around forty civilians.

At the very beginning, of course, the Western media apparently ran headlines claiming that it was the Russians who bombed the mosque. Later, it was reported that it was the United States who was the responsible party, however, the Russian headlines were scrubbed and new stories published reporting the bombing as well as the public denials by the U.S. military.

The airstrike took place in al-Jineh in Aleppo province. The U.S. claims that the bombing was intended for a building nearby that was believed to be hosting an al-Qaeda meeting. U.S. officials claim that the intended building is 40 to 50 feet away from the mosque and even state that the mosque is still standing. The military claims images actually prove the mosque is still standing.

"We did not target, nor did we strike a mosque," Major Josh Jacques, a spokesman for US Central Command (Centcom) told the BBC.

Syria Shoots Down Israeli Plane After Israel Launches Air Operation In Support Of ISIS

March 17, 2017

Only a week away from a number of Israeli officials making statements suggesting the buildup to a war with Hezbollah, the Israeli Air Force once again launched airstrikes in Syria, alleging that the strikes were taken against a weapons convoy of the Lebanese militia coming through Syria. Four airplanes took place in the operation according to the Syrian military.

However, the Syrian military activated their anti-aircraft missile defense system against the Israeli jets, taking one down and hitting one more. The jet crashed in Israeli territory, however, as the planes were back over Israeli soil by the time the missile was able to connect.

The Israeli operation and the missile firing were both confirmed by the Syrian and Israeli governments. Israel would not confirm that a plane had actually been shot down, however. This is typical of Israel who tends not to acknowledge any military defeats or setbacks publicly.

Israel claimed that its air defense system, Arrow, was able to intercept one of the missiles but would not elaborate. It also refused to say whether or not the missiles caused any further damage to Israeli territory, saying that the missiles did not compromise the safety of civilians or compromise any aircraft.

Passing The Baton: Trump Takes Over In The Race For Raqqa

The U.S. military has finally created its plan for “defeating ISIS” in Syria as ordered by President Trump earlier this year. Unfortunately, that plan is virtually a carbon copy of Obama’s plans to start World War 3 and cause a confrontation with Russia on Syrian soil. This is because the new plan involves the deployment of up to 1,000 American soldiers to Northern Syria for the purpose of shoring up the offensive to retake Raqqa.

As Thomas Gibbons-Neff of the Washington Post reports,

The deployment, if approved by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and President Trump, would potentially double the number of U.S. forces in Syria and increase the potential for direct U.S. combat involvement in a conflict that has been characterized by confusion and competing priorities among disparate forces.

Trump, who charged former president Barack Obama with being weak on Syria, gave the Pentagon 30 days to prepare a new plan to counter the Islamic State, and Mattis submitted a broad outline to the White House at the end of February. Gen. Joseph Votel, head of U.S. Central Command, has been filling in more details for that outline, including by how much to increase the U.S. ground presence in Syria. Votel is set to forward his recommendations to Mattis by the end of the month, and the Pentagon secretary is likely to sign off on them, according to a defense official familiar with the deliberations.

First Footage Of Suicide Bombs In Damascus; West, GCC Trying To Send A Message To Syria Ahead Of Peace Talks

March 16, 2017

As terrorists in Syria celebrated their six year anniversary of being pawns of the West, GCC, and Israel, the celebration was apparently capped off with suicide bombings throughout Damascus, including a court house where Syrians had gathered to sign marriage papers.

At least thirty people were killed at the Palace of Justice and sixty others were wounded when a terrorist detonated his explosive vest.

There have been a series of suicide bombings in Damascus as of late in an apparent attempt to send a message to the Syrian government and the Syrian people that, while the Syrian military might be making major gains throughout the country, terrorists are still able to penetrate to the heart of the government’s territory. The bombings also send the message that civilians are not safe no matter where they are.

On March 12, a bus full of Iraqi Shi’ia pilgrims was attacked on its way to take the passengers to pray at the mausoleums of revered Shi’ite saints near Baab al-Sagheer. The buses were first attacked by an IED before a suicide bomber with an explosive belt finished off the attack. Forty-five were killed and over one hundred and twenty wounded.

On March 11, terrorists from Jaysh al-Islam fired mortars and rockets at buildings in Damascus hitting one behind Daar al-Shifaa hospital. Many suspect these attacks were actually aimed at drawing attention and providing cover for the terrorists engaging in the attack on the buses.

Israeli Politician, Cabinet Minister Says Next War With Lebanon Should Target Civilian Infrastructure

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 16, 2017

Recently elected Lebanese President Michel Aoun visited Cairo in February where he uttered words previously treated as an open secret by preceding Presidents; namely, that Hezbollah is indeed a major part of the defense of the country. While other Presidents have tended to skirt the issue, Aoun essentially acknowledged the close relationship between Lebanon the state and Hezbollah the militia. The relationship between Hezbollah and the Lebanese state is apparent for all to see, of course, with Hezbollah acting as the major deterrent to Israel’s aggression.

“As long as Israel occupies land and covets the natural resources of Lebanon, and as long as the Lebanese military lacks the power to stand up to Israel, [Hezbollah’s] arms are essential, in that they complement the actions of the army and do not contradict them,” he said, adding, “They are a major part of Lebanon’s defense.”

But, while Aoun’s statements are entirely realistic and reasonable, Israeli warmongers have typically lept upon the statements to squeeze whatever justification for war and slaughter they can possibly manage by claiming that Aoun is essentially stating that Hezbollah and the Lebanese military are one and the same. For that reason, Brig. Gen. Assaf Orion of the Institute for National Security Studies claims that Lebanon now puts itself on the hook as responsible for anything Hezbollah might do.

Orion’s claim was that Aoun’s comments were a “lifting of the official veil and tearing off of the mask of the well-known Lebanese reality – which widely accepted Western diplomacy tends to blur. The Lebanese president abolishes the forced distinction between the ostensibly sovereign state and Hezbollah. Thus, the Lebanese president takes official responsibility for any actions by Hezbollah, including against Israel.”

U.S. Mobilizes Troops To Block Syria Military’s Progress, Halt Conflict Between Turks And Kurds

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 15, 2017

On March 2, U.S. troops were spotted moving in a convoy toward the Syrian city of Manbij in Northern Syria.

This new mobilization caught many Syrian researchers by surprise and has caused utter befuddlement on the part of the hapless mainstream average viewer. Why would the U.S., who has already invaded Syria, make another push inside Syria in such a limited way? And why Manbij? This is, of course, the confused response of the minority who actually know that there is even a conflict in Syria.

The mobilization and deployment comes as Turk Euphrates Shield troops exchanged fire with Kurdish forces (Manbij Military Council) in areas West of Manbij.

Spokesman for the Combined Joint Task Force for Operation Inherent Resolve, Col. John Dorrian, said that the deployment was a “deliberate action” taken in order to make sure that the forces of the US-led coalition were able to “deter aggression” and “keep the focus on defeating ISIS” elsewhere in Syria.

Dorrian’s statements were a response to Kurdish news agency Rudlaw’s tweet announcing the sighting of the American troops.

U.S. military officials have said that this deployment does not necessarily mean that there has been an increase in the number of American soldiers deployed to Syria as a whole, only that these specific soldiers have been mobilized. That, however, remains to be seen.

Photos Show ISIS Setting Up Checkpoints In Egypt’s Sinai

As terrorism and clashes between Sinai militants and Egyptian security has slowly increased since the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood member Morsi from his position as President of Egypt, so has ISIS activity in the peninsula.

Egyptian security have been facing an increase in activity for some time from the Sinai militants but the introduction of ISIS proper has also caused the situation to worsen. Yet, up until now, the situation seemed more sporadic even if it was increasing in frequency.

Recent photos emerging from the Sinai region, however, suggest that ISIS’ foothold in Egypt might be greater than many, including the Egyptian security forces, suspected.

If photos are actually depicting what they allege, then ISIS has become so powerful in the Sinai that the port city of al-Arish is now being subjected to ISIS checkpoints. Arish is the capital of the North Sinai and is the largest city on the peninsula.

These pictures show ISIS fighters, complete with rifles and RPGs, walking through traffic and inspecting drivers’ IDs. One picture shows a man being detained by the fighters in the city square.

The photos were released by Amaq Agency, which is the official ISIS news outlet (curiously, never hacked or shut down by the greatest technological power in the world, despite claims that it is fighting the terrorist organization).

Of course, there is a possibility that the photos were staged and are being used to instill fear in the Egyptian population. As of yet, there has been no independent confirmation of the veracity of the photos.

Reuters Reports Russia Deploys Special Forces To Libya

Emerging reports from Western mainstream outlets are now provoking a flurry of accusations and denials from Western, Russian, and African states regarding the allegation that Russia has deployed Special Forces troops to Western Egypt in support of one of the Libyan factions vying for control of the country.

The initial reports came on March 14 from Reuters, citing diplomatic sources from both the U.S. and Egypt. These alleged officials are claiming that any Russian deployment is likely part of an attempt to support Khalif Haftar, the Libyan militia commander who was dealt a blow by an attack on March 3 by the Benghazi Defence Brigades (BDB) on oil ports that his forces controlled.

Speaking on conditions of anonymity, the U.S. officials said the United States has observed what they believe to be Russian Special Forces and drones about 60 miles away from the Libyan side of the Egypt-Libya border, at Sidi Barrani.

Reuters also reported that its Egyptian sources provided more detail, stating that a 22 member Russian Special Forces unit had been deployed but the sources did not discuss the mission of the unit. They also said that Russia also used a base farther east in Marsa Matrouh in February.

An Egyptian Army spokesman, Tamer al-Rifai, denied that any Russian unit was on Egyptian soil.

“There is no foreign soldier from any foreign country on Egyptian soil. This is a matter of sovereignty,” he said.

The United States military declined to comment on the situation.

American Corporate MSM Is Merged With CIA And Has Been Since The 1950s

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 14, 2017

Hat tip to Washington’s Blog for collating much of this information.

With the recent back and forth seemingly taking place between two different factions of the American Deep State and playing out before the entire country, a few alternative media outlets have begun to question whether or not certain mainstream media outlets are actually connected to the Deep State, most notably the CIA. With an unimaginable scale of disinformation being released and promoted throughout mainstream channels on a daily basis, all propagandizing the public to go along with the desired direction of the American establishment, few could assume otherwise. However, such connections between American mainstream outlets and the CIA are more than mere conjecture, they are well-known and have been documented for some time.

For instance, back in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, Operation Mockingbird, a plan known to many researchers today but known to virtually no one at the time it was originally being implemented, was a secret CIA effort to influence and control the American media and, thus, to influence and control the information received (as well as the opinions) of the American people. The first report of the program came in 1979 in the biography of Katharine Graham, the owner of The Washington Post, written by Deborah Davis.[1]

Davis wrote that the program was established by Frank Wisner, the director of the Office of Policy Coordination, a covert operations unit created under the National Security Council. According to Davis, Wisner recruited Philip Graham of the Washington Post to head the project within the media industry. Davis wrote that, “By the early 1950s, Wisner 'owned' respected members of The New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles." Davis also writes that Allen Dulles convinced Cord Meyer, who later became Mockingbird’s “principal operative,” to join the CIA in 1951.[2]

WikiLeaks Release Confirms What “Conspiracy Theorists” Have Known For Years

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post 
March 13, 2017

The recent Wikileaks release is promising to be a much bigger bombshell than anything Edward Snowden ever released. Unlike Snowden, however, the corporate press in the West is not devoting 24/7 coverage with all the bells and whistles of an intentional push to promote the story. Instead, it is largely the alternative and independent press that is giving attention to the recent Wikileaks announcement. Interestingly enough, the mainstream press reports are largely focusing on accusations that Wikileaks has “joined the Trump administration” or that the leaker of the information is a traitor.

As part of a series of leaks regarding the CIA, Wikileaks has released “Vault 7,” containing over 8,000 documents coming from the CIA’s Center For Cyber Intelligence located in Langley.

So far, the 8,000 documents are only part of the first release, “Year Zero,” which reveals the CIA’s “global covert hacking program” and its “weaponized exploits” as well as the fact that it has used these tools against products produced by “Apple's iPhone, Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.”

Wikileaks claims it has received the information from a source inside the CIA’s CCI.

As Zero Hedge writes,

Among the more notable disclosures which, if confirmed, "would rock the technology world", the CIA had managed to bypass encryption on popular phone and messaging services such as Signal, WhatsApp and Telegram. According to the statement from WikiLeaks, government hackers can penetrate Android phones and collect “audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.” 

Canadian Journalist Eva Bartlett Exposes Mainstream Media Outlets For Reporting Falsehoods, Misinformation In Their Stories

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 13, 2017

Ever since having utterly destroyed a smug mainstream journalist at a UN Summit over corporate media’s claims that they had sources inside East Aleppo, hospital bombings, and other “atrocities” committed by the Assad government, Eva Bartlett has been the subject of a corporate media smear campaign.

Corporate media outlets and their NGO talking heads have maligned her as a “Russian agent,” a “Syrian agent,” and, probably the most ridiculous of all, even a racist (meaning white supremacist). This last one, of course, is a hallmark of the more NGO-funded or mentally handicapped SJW contingency, the usual suspects who compulsively make this accusation. The argument is that saying the alleged "revolution" of bearded jihadist freaks was funded and orchestrated by the West is to deny that Arabs have the ability to orchestrate their own subhuman revolution of savagery. (Yawn.)

Still, this is quite a resume for a Canadian woman writing for alternative media outlets who can afford to pay very little for contributors (if at all) and traveling to places like Gaza and Syria on a shoestring budget in often rather unpleasant conditions. With Russia taking over the world and all, it’s surprising they couldn’t at least find better travel arrangements for one of their agents (or at least a .com domain! After all, the Russian hacking ability knows no limits, right?). It’s also odd that a white supremacist would find her life’s calling defending the rights of brown people against Western, largely white, nations. But I digress . . .

The assertions made against her are so baseless and incredibly imbecilic that they do not warrant refutations, especially since her detractors will simply invent another attack when the current one no longer works. Today, a racist Russian/Syrian agent. Tomorrow an anti-white capitalist pig, perhaps. Only time will tell.

Study Shows Roundup Weedkiller Causes Liver Disease At Extremely Low Concentrations

roundup NAFLDBrandon Turbeville
March 13, 2017

If the toxic herbicide glyphosate had not provided enough reasons to justify a ban, a new study published in Scientific Reports is doing just that.

This study has revealed that Roundup, of which glyphosate is the main ingredient, has the potential to cause non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

The study involved a test on rats that showed that even at extremely low levels of exposure, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) was produced.

This peer-reviewed study showed that Roundup caused NAFLD at a concentration far below that which is found in the bodies of most Americans.

Indeed, the research showed that exposing the rats to Roundup in concentrations a thousand times lower than allowable limits in food and drinking water or even lower than concentrations found in the urine of most Americans caused changes in the liver which contained the molecular signature of NAFLD.

Around a third of U.S. residents are affected by NAFLD which generally causes no symptoms in most people but can lead to liver cirrhosis and cancer. There are known risk factors but these factors do not explain the increase of cases of NAFLD and why it is much more common in young people in the past. It is also worth noting that liver cancer has increased among Americans almost three-fold since the 1980s.

As Dr. David Schubert, Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies wrote,

In the world of drug development, in which I am a participant, before a drug is allowed into the clinic, it must be carefully screened in animals such as rats to determine if it shows toxic effects at the exposure levels where it is expected to be effective in humans. If any toxicity is observed, the drug is not allowed. In addition, once approved, signs of toxicity in patients must be monitored and reported to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). One would hope that this would also be the case with prevalent agricultural chemicals, but it is not. 

Gluten-Free Diet Can Expose You To More Heavy Metals Like Mercury

gluten-free diet mercuryBrandon Turbeville
Natural Blaze
March 13, 2017

According to a new report in the journal Epidemiology, people who eat a gluten-free diet may actually be at higher risk for exposure to arsenic and mercury.

This is quite concerning considering the growing popularity of the gluten-free diet with a quarter of Americans having gone gluten-free in 2015. That was a 67% increase from 2013.

The cause for the increased risk for arsenic and mercury exposure, however, is not necessarily a result of the gluten-free diet itself. Instead, it appears to be due to the fact that many gluten-free products contain rice flour as a substitute for wheat. Rice has been known to bioaccumulate both arsenic and mercury, as well as other toxic heavy metals, from water, soil or fertilizers.

Maria Argos, an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology in the UIC School of Public Health, looked at data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in order to search for a link between toxic metals in blood and urine and the gluten-free diet.

Out of 7,471 people who completed survey, 73 were gluten-free. The results were that the people who were eating gluten-free had higher concentrations of mercury in their blood and arsenic in their urine. Arsenic levels were nearly twice as high for gluten-free dieters and mercury levels were 70% higher.

Argos said:

These results indicate that there could be unintended consequences of eating a gluten-free diet. But until we perform the studies to determine if there are corresponding health consequences that could be related to higher levels of exposure to arsenic and mercury by eating gluten-free, more research is needed before we can determine whether this diet poses a significant health risk.

GM Golden Rice Flops In New Trial, Mutant Plants Reduces Crop Yield

gm golden riceBrandon Turbeville
March 13, 2017

After millions of dollars and untold amounts of hype, the GM Lobby’s favorite crop is demonstrating itself to do the opposite of what it was allegedly intended to do.

As evidenced by a new study, Golden Rice, which was engineered to produce the precursor of vitamin A (carotenoids) has shown extensive abnormalities in growth as well as reduced grain yield.

The researchers named several reasons for the poor performance of Golden Rice, one of which being, that the new gene interferes with the plant’s gene that produces growth hormones. In addition, the new gene was not solely active in the kernels as it was intended, but also in the leaves. Both issues caused a substantial reduction in the amount of chlorophyll which is essential for the life of the plant.

Interestingly enough, these unintended effects were not detected in previous experiments. And Golden Rice was advertised as being a crop that would be genetically stable.

For years, Golden Rice has been hyped by the GMO lobby, Big Ag corporations and the “charitable” NGO community as the miracle that would save the third world from vitamin A deficiency, blindness and starvation. But so far, as is the case with most GMO crops, golden rice has produced nothing.

Instead, it seems that years of repeating the term Golden Rice in relation to saving the world and painting anti-GMO activists as stubbornly forcing the third world to starve is mainly more effective as a PR campaign than anything else.

Big corporations and NGOs run by bankers and financiers could not care less about starvation in the third world. After all, banks and corporations are largely the reason why Africans live on a continent of unimaginable abundance yet starve to death on a daily basis.

Mercury Dental Amalgams Are Linked To Chronic Illness, Fatigue, Depression And Anxiety

mercury dental amalgamsBrandon Turbeville
Natural Blaze
March 13, 2017

It might seem surprising to some but in 2017 there is still debate in the medical community as to whether or not dental mercury amalgams are safe.

Despite voluminous amounts of evidence suggesting that mercury fillings are incredibly toxic, many dentists and medical doctors maintain that there is no major side effects from their usage. However, an article published in Neuroendocrinology Letters back in 2014 shows that the mercury filling hold outs are standing in stark opposition to the evidence.

The researchers for the article set out to review the evidence surrounding a possible link between mercury exposure from dental amalgams and certain chronic illnesses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, depression and suicide.

Studies had already previously shown that chronic mercury exposure is directly associated with a variety of health issues, especially depression, anxiety and fatigue. Interestingly enough, these are some of the main symptoms associated with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Other studies have shown that the [careful, staggered] removal of dental amalgams have shown an improvement in these symptoms.

As the authors of the study stated,

Although the issue of amalgam safety is still under debate, the preponderance of evidence suggests that Hg exposure from dental amalgams may cause or contribute to many chronic conditions. Thus, consideration of Hg toxicity may be central to the effective clinical investigation of many chronic illnesses, particularly those involving fatigue and depression.

Turkish Military, FSA, Terrorists Capture, Mistreat Syrian Soldiers – Signs Of Coming Turkey-Syria Confrontation?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 10, 2017

As Turkey marches forward in its plan to establish “Buffer zones” in Syria, the nature of the Turkish-backed forces and the real purpose of the Turkish invasion are becoming more and more clear for all to see.

As many in the alternative media have realized for quite some time, Turkey’s military incursion into Syria is an attempt to establish the solidification of ISIS/terrorist staging grounds inside Syria as well as to prevent the solidification of Kurdish forces in both Syria and Turkey. While the mainstream media tends to present Turkish-backed forces as moderates fighting against ISIS, the truth is that the Turk-backed fighters are barely distinguishable from ISIS. In fact, in many cases, the groups are one in the same.

They do, however, provide a good pretext for claiming victories over ISIS, justifying, and maintaining a hold on territory seized by these terrorists after they have “driven out ISIS.”

Interestingly enough, Turkish-backed forces are reported as having doubled their ranks by conquering ISIS territory in Syria by the western mainstream corporate press. Yet, in what other war does an army double its ranks simply by capturing territory? How would Turk-backed forces do so? That is, how would they do so unless ISIS fighters were joining their ranks as territory was “captured?”

Regardless, the nature of the Turkish-backed forces was recently put on display after the Turk-backed “Free Syrian Army,” along with a number of actual Turkish military forces, managed to capture a number of Syrian military soldiers after killing eight and wounding “tens” of soldiers. After capturing them, the coalition members then surrounded the Syrian soldiers, berating and slapping them throughout the course of the video along to the chant of “Allahu Akbar” so familiar to Neanderthal barbarians fighting against the Syrian government all across the country.

Medical Doctors Question Veracity Of Footage In White Helmets Documentary; Al-Qaeda Wins Oscar

Despite Oscar Win, Organization Revealed As Al-Qaeda Rescue Operation
Since 2001, Americans have lost the majority of their Constitutional rights under the guise of security and protection from terrorist attacks launched by al-Qaeda. Freedom of travel has been restricted, the Fourth Amendment has virtually been eliminated, due process scarcely exists, and even the First Amendment has been rapidly curtailed and is being chipped away even more with each passing day.

But sixteen years after Americans began throwing their rights at the U.S. government in fear of al-Qaeda, the terrorist organization blamed by the Bush administration for the 9/11 attacks, the United States’ film academy has given al-Qaeda an Oscar.

Unfortunately, however, the award was not granted because the academy was impressed by the technical skill of the highly staged and faked White Helmets’ videos designed to tear at the heartstrings of somnambulant American consumers but, instead, the award was given for best documentary short. Our only surprise was that the presenters and award winners could take a break from their staged and carefully marketed PC political speeches long enough to actually deal with awards.

But while we have to give props to the makers of the White Helmets video and documentary in terms of propaganda production, to informed observers, the truth about the group is even transparent through the film itself. Aside from the many short videos found on the internet showing the group taking part in executions, carrying arms, and chanting support for the extermination of specific ethnicities, religions, or the SAA, the film contains a number of questionable medical scenes designed to horrify the viewer at the “brutality” of the “Assad regime.” Upon a closer look, however, they reveal several anomalies.

Proposed Bill To Block Mandatory Microchipping Of Citizens

A new bill being proposed by a Nevada state senator is drawing attention not only from Nevada citizens but from people across the country.

This is because Senate Bill 109 proposed by Senator Becky Harris is seen by many as a preemptive measure against the obvious push to implant humans with microchips that is marching forward in virtually every country on the face of the earth.

Harris says the inspiration for the bill came from one of her constituents and told the Senate Judiciary Committee “as I began to look into the issue, I was surprised with the merit that I believe the issue warrants.” Her legislation would prevent RFID chips or any other technology that stores personal data or can be used to track an individual from being implanted in human beings without their consent.

It would also make mandatory microchipping a Class C felony.

“This is a completely new issue,” Harris stated. “I just want a safety measure in place until we better understand the technology and the reasoning behind people’s desire to require implanting chips.”

Similar legislation is already in place in Wisconsin, Oklahoma, California and North Dakota. Despite the fact that there was no opposition to the legislation in Committee, there has been no further action taken so far in regards to its passage.

Predictably, some are attempting to malign Harris’ bill ironically as government overreach as the Washoe County Deputy Public Defender attempted to do in his own statement.

Iowa City Carves 1000 Acres To Seed Habitat Rescue For Bees And Butterflies

As the bee population continues to decline, many people are becoming increasingly concerned. Some in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, however, are now taking action to do what they can to prevent bees from disappearing completely.

The plan coming out of Cedar Rapids seeks to seed 188 acres with wild flowers and native prairie grasses. Eventually the city wants to seed 1,000 acres of bee habitats.

The 1,000 Acre Pollinator Initiative is a result of a partnership between the Monarch Research Project and Cedar Rapids.

While MRP’s goal is to restore the Monarch butterfly population, bees and butterflies are both experiencing a crisis due to the same causes and solutions to save both are very similar as well.

The project so far has secured $180,000 in funding from both the state and MRP.

Cedar Rapids Parks Superintendent, Daniel Gibbins writes,

You don’t need to have a thousand spare acres to help bees and butterflies. Even devoting a few square feet of your garden – or even a few small planters – to wild flowers native to your area could make a difference.

Stephen Buchmann, a Pollination Ecologist at the University of Arizona and author of The Reason for Flowers said,

Pesticide Exposure Damages The Mouth Microbiome

A new study published in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology has demonstrated a disturbing link between pesticide exposure and the destruction of healthy bacteria of the mouth.

The study involved an examination of “oral buccal microbiota” in an agriculutural community involving 65 farm workers and 52 non-farm workers. The purpose fo teh study was to investigate whether or not pesticide exposure caused any changes in the mouth bacteria.

Of course, not all bacteria is bad including streptococcus which is actually one of the most common bacteria found in the mouth.

What was found was that not only did farm workers have a higher blood level of pesticides, they also had greater changes in mouth bacteria in individuals who did not work on farms.

As the authors of the study wrote,

We found a seasonally persistent association between the detected blood concentration of the insecticide Azinphos-methyl and the taxonomic composition of the buccal swab oral microbiome. Blood and buccal samples were collected concurrently from individual subjects in two seasons, spring/summer 2005 and winter 2006. Mass spectrometry quantified blood concentrations of the organophosphate insecticide Azinphos-methyl. Buccal oral microbiome samples were 16S rRNA gene DNA sequenced, assigned to the bacterial taxonomy and analyzed after ‘centered-log-ratio’ transformation to handle the compositional nature of the proportional abundances of bacteria per sample. Non-parametric analysis of the transformed microbiome data for individuals with and without Azinphos-methyl blood detection showed significant perturbations in seven common bacterial genera (>0.5% of sample mean read depth), including significant reductions in the common oral bacteria, Streptococcus. Diversity in ‘centered-log-ratio’ composition between individuals’ microbiomes was also investigated using principal components analysis (PCA) to reveal two primary PCA clusters of microbiome types. The spring/summer ‘exposed’ microbiome cluster with significantly less bacterial diversity was enriched for farmworkers and contained 27 of the 30 individuals who also had Azinphos-methyl agricultural pesticide exposure detected in the blood.

Parity Is The Answer To America’s Agricultural Crisis

Farming is, by nature, an up and down game, with so many variables going into the production of food that can drive both prices and production. Throughout American and, indeed, world history, agriculture has been susceptible to the climate, weather, human action, war, and economic policy. But, for all history, one thing has remained constant: the fact that human society totally depends on the ability of farmers to produce food. It is quite a simple realization but a powerful one. The death of the farmer is the death of humanity as a whole.

In the United States, since the early 1900s, the entire country has experience various farm crises – some as a result of weather and climate disasters but mostly as a result of governmental policy, i.e. the inability of the U.S. government to ensure that farmers actually have an incentive to produce food.

America made it through the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression and still lived to establish perhaps the greatest or near greatest fair agricultural system in the world . . . until the mid-1950s when that system was ended with the advent of the 1980s farm crisis and a series of events that has seen big banks and big corporations take the place of family farmers, a process that is continuing to this day. In 2017, American farming is in the worst shape of American history.

1983 CIA Document Reveals Plan To Destroy Syria, Foreshadows Current Crisis

As the Syrian crisis enters its sixth year, the Donald Trump administration is looking more and more like the Obama administration every day. With the Trump regime refusing to open useful dialogue with Russia regarding Syria, it’s obvious anti-Iran and pro-Israel positioning, and support for a very questionable “safe zone” plan for Syria, the odds of a rational U.S. policy in regards to Syria has lower and lower odds of existence as time progresses.

Yet, despite the fact that the Trump administration is apparently poised to continue the Obama regime’s proxy war of aggression against the people of Syria, an example of seamless transition, it should also be remembered that the plan to destroy Syria did not begin with Obama but with the Bush administration.

Even now, as the world awaits the continuation of the Syrian war through a Democratic and Republican administration, the genesis of that war goes back to the Republican Bush administration demonstrating that there is indeed an overarching agenda and an overarching infrastructure of an oligarchical deep state intent on moving forward regardless of which party is seemingly in power.

U.S. Sponsors New Sanctions Against Syria At UN Security Council, Russia “Has No Choice” But To Veto

If anyone doubts that the Trump administration is merely the continuation of the Anglo-American establishment, at least where Syria and Western imperialism is concerned, they need only follow the recent events having taken place in the United Nations Security Council.

In a draft initiated and supported by the United States, U.K., and France, a plan was put forward to impose new sanctions on the Syrian government in the form of a ban on all shipments of helicopters to the army or the government. It also included sanctions on a number of Syrian officials and government institutions allegedly involved in “chlorine attacks.” The draft resolution received nine votes, the minimum necessary for passing such a document. However, both the Russians and the Chinese as well as the Bolivians vetoed the measure with Egypt, Kazakhstan, and Ethiopia abstaining.

The coalition of Western powers who submitted the draft used dubious claims by the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism that attempted to blame the Syrian government for dropping “chlorine bombs” on civilians. That report, however, was fraught with shoddy investigation and relied mostly on “witnesses” cherry picked by pro-terrorist anti Syrian NGOs and “opposition” members.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stated,

Syrian Perspective

ALEPPO: The army is moving toward Al-Baab after crushing ISIS psychopaths in Taadif who have admitted to abandoning their positions there. As more reinforcements arrive to help in exterminating the Turk-supported derelicts, the latter started shelling our army. Our army fired back destroying 3 armored cars and killing over 20 of the rodents. We are getting assistance now also from the SDF as the Kurds are beginning to realize that their future is better served with Dr. Assad and the Syrian people than trying to surreptitiously establish federalism in Syria. Russia is working hard to avoid a confrontation between the Turk savages and the Syrian Army.
