POPE SAYS MIGRANTS MORE IMPORTANT THAN NATIONAL SECURITY
Pope Delivers Pro-Open Borders Remarks In Wake Of Barcelona Terror Attack

Adan Salazar

Pope Francis is again urging governments around the world to open their doors to migrants, regardless of national security concerns. “The principle of the centrality of the human person… ...obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security,” Pope Francis stated Monday. “Let us beg the Lord, God of mercy and peace, to free the world from this inhuman violence,” the Pope stated.

The pontiff’s comments, delivered in anticipation of World Refugee Day 2018 taking place January 14, followed numerous radical Islamic terror attacks targeting Europe, including a truck attack in Barcelona last week which left 15 people dead and more than 130 people injured, possibly maimed for live. The Vicar of Christ didn’t let the non-stop terror attacks derail his argument in favor of open borders. The world should see “every stranger who knocks at our door” as “an opportunity for an encounter with Jesus Christ,” who the Pope claimed "welcomed and rejected strangers of every age.” The pope directed border guards to be properly trained to guarantee refugees’ personal safety and provide them with “access to basic services.” “In countries of arrival, [I hope that] migrants may be offered freedom of movement, work opportunities, and access to means of communication.” The pope also called to “simplify the process for granting humanitarian visas” and insisted on “special temporary visas” for fleeing migrants. “Collective and arbitrary expulsions of migrants and refugees are not suitable solutions,” The Holy See said.

Pope Francis has previously sparred with U.S. President Donald Trump over his hardline stance on immigration, and disagreed with calls to build a wall on the southern US border with Mexico. “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel,” the pope, referring to Trump.

“If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened.” Trump also reminded the pope that the Vatican is surrounded by a 40 foot wall.



HB 3391 OREGON: ABORTION IS LEGAL THROUGH ALL 9 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY
Sex Selection Abortions Are Legal - State Pays For All- Including Women In The Country Illegally

Charlie Butts

Oregon's Democratic lawmakers and governor have decided the state's taxpayers will be financing abortions in full, even though it might violate their conscience or their religious beliefs. Voter opposition to the new law has been silenced. On Wednesday, Governor Kate Brown (D) signed into law a bill that breaks down all existing barriers in Oregon to a woman or girl obtaining an abortion. HB 3391 which passed along party lines in the Senate in July (17 Democrats for, 13 Republicans against) – forces all insurance companies but one to pay for abortions with no co-pay; and the state pays for abortions for those who lack insurance – including for women in the country illegally.

Abortion is legal through all nine months of pregnancy in Oregon, sex selection abortions are legal, no parental notification is required. Literally it's abortion on demand, freely paid for in the state of Oregon. Included in the bill was an emergency clause requiring that it go into effect immediately upon the governor's signature, even though there is no emergency. According to the ORTL executive director, the bill's sponsors did that for a specific reason.

"That means that there can be no referendum against them," says Atteberry. "It insures that there's no way for the citizens of Oregon to rise up and suggest a referendum that would overturn the bill. They're doing that quite frequently now on their bad bills so that no one can stop them."

A Fox News report points out that opposition to the bill came from the eastern portion of the state, which is predominately Republican and "extremely conservative" on social issues like abortion. But in the western portion – described as "among the least churched areas in the entire country" – the bill has plenty of support.



DOJ HALTS OPERATION CHOKEPOINT, WHICH TARGETED FIREARM DEALERS AND PAYDAY LENDERS
Obama-Era Program Targeted Law-Abiding Firearms Businesses

Kerry Picket | Daily Caller

The Department of Justice has ended its Obama-era Operation Chokepoint initiative, which aimed to block some businesses, including firearm dealers and payday lenders, from having access to bank loans. House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and ranking committee member John Conyers, Assistant Attorney General Stephen F. Boyd wrote that DOJ considers Operation Chokepoint a “misguided initiative conducted during the previous administration.”



USS MCCAIN SUFFERED STEERAGE FAILURE CAUSING COLLISION WITH COMMERCIAL TANKER
The Remains Of Miissing 10 Sailors Found After Collision

Brad Lendon & Jim Sciutto- Updated Tue August 22, 2017

The remains of 10 missing US sailors have been found after the collision between the US destroyer John S. McCain and the Alnic MC, a 600-foot, Liberian-flagged oil and chemical tanker, near Singapore, Navy Admiral Scott Swift said Tuesday. Navy and Marine Corps divers found the remains in the sealed compartments aboard the USS McCain, said Admiral Swift, commander of the Pacific Fleet. The Royal Malaysian Navy has located one body at sea, and officials are working to determine whether it is one of the missing sailors. Divers have located others.

US military divers continue to search the flooded areas of the USS McCain. Ships and planes are scouring the seas east of Singapore. Divers will also assess the extent of damage to the warship, which is docked at a Singapore naval facility, according to the Navy. "Until we have exhausted any potential of recovering survivors or bodies, the search and rescue efforts will continue." 5 sailors were injured in the crash, and a Singaporean air force helicopter airlifted 4 of them to a Singapore hospital.

The White House expressed its "great sadness" about the incident. "As the Navy begins the process of recovering our fallen sailors, our thoughts and prayers go out to their families and friends," the statement said.

A Navy official reported the USS McCain suffered a steering failure as the warship was beginning its approach into the Strait of Malacca, causing it to collide with Liberian oil and chemical commercial tanker. The official said it was unclear why the crew couldn't use the ship's backup steering systems to maintain control. Another Naval officer said there were indications the destroyer experienced a loss of steering right before the collision, but steering had been regained afterward. "The USS McCain was up and running as an operational ship almost immediately after the collision. It was quite extraordinary," he said.

The USS McCain has been towed to Singapore's Changi Naval Base. The other ship, the Alnic MC, a 600-foot, Liberian-flagged oil and chemical tanker, was towed to Singapore's eastern anchorage for inspection.

NAVY POSSIBILE TARGET OF A CYBERATTACK
Investigators Would Not Discount The Possibilities Of Cyberattack

David Knight

The USS McCain recently collided with a merchant ship. How could the most powerful nation in the world make these kinds of mistakes at sea?

A spate of US Navy warship accidents in Asia since January.
♦ The USS McCain collision this August bears a resemblance to other incidents.
♦ The USS Fitzgerald, was involved in an incident in June which collided with a container ship off the coast of Japan and led to the deaths of 7 US sailors.
♦ In addition, the USS Lake Champlain hit a South Korean fishing boat in May.
♦ The USS Antietam ran aground off the coast of Japan in January.

Lawmakers and defense analysts have warned that longer deployments for ships and less time and money for maintenance and training could be playing a role in the accidents. A press release on the USS McCain last week said the crew had completed 350 maintenance and repair jobs while at sea. At least 100 of those were classified as "depot-level" jobs that would usually be conducted at a shipyard. "We are not letting this deployment eat away at our material readiness," said Cmdr. Jessie Sanchez, the executive officer of USS McCain. "We continue to maintain our upkeep, so that when we come back, we are just as good if not better than when we left."

There was no indication the collision was intentional nor was there evidence the ship was the target of a cyberattack, but investigators would not discount these possibilities, Richardson told reporters. "We are taking a look at all (options) as we did with the USS Fitzgerald as well," he said.



BEIJING CLAIMS AMERICAN WARSHIP USS JOHN S. MCCAIN VIOLATED CHINA’S SOVEREIGNTY & SECURITY
Territorial Disputes In Area With 5 Regional Nations –Vietnam, Taiwan, Brunei, Malaysia And The Philippines- US Says Should Be Neutral Space Available For Free Navigation

RT

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang said, "The US destroyer’s actions have violated Chinese and international laws, as well as severely harmed China’s sovereignty and security. China is very displeased with this and will bring up the issue with the US side.” The Foreign Ministry pointed out that that the so-called US “freedom of navigation” mission was carried out without authorization from Beijing, which has “indisputable sovereignty over the Nansha Islands (Spratley) and its surrounding waters.”

“The Chinese army immediately sent warships (to the area) in accordance with the law to implement the identification of the US ship and warn it off,” the spokesperson said. Beijing has also urged Washington to respect “the joint efforts of the regional countries to maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea.” “The US provocation also forced the Chinese side to take measures to further enhance the national defense capability,” the ministry added.

Earlier Thursday, American warship USS John S. McCain sailed within a 12-mile range of Mischief Reef in the disputed Spratly chain in the South China Sea, US officials told the media. It was the third mission aimed at challenging China’s claim on the territory under the Trump administration. 2 other US Navy ships approached China-claimed islands in the South China Sea in July and May.

Beijing is tangled in a web of territorial disputes in the areas with 5 regional nations – Vietnam, Taiwan, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines. The South China Sea is crucial for Chinese foreign trade, serving as a major transportation route for minerals, energy and Chinese-made goods. It is also believed to be rich in natural resources, including oil.

The US says it supports none of the nations’ claims in the area and insists that the sea should be a neutral space available for free navigation. Washington is accusing China of taking an aggressive stance on the issue because of its island reclamation projects. Beijing insists that the artificial islands primarily serve civilian purposes like support of rescue operations and weather observation. Thursday’s mission comes as the US seeks greater Chinese involvement on resolving the tension over its neighbor, North Korea’s, continuing missile tests, which are perceived in Washington as a serious threat to the US and its regional allies.



STABBING SPREE IN FINLAND: KNIFEMEN ATTACK EIGHT PEOPLE- FIVE WERE WOMEN INCLUDING ONE WOMAN PUSHING A BABY CARRIAGE
Cops Gun Down One Suspect ‘And Hunt Gang Of Attackers’

TheSun.co.uk

People were left covered in blood after the shocking mid-afternoon attack which saw 8 people rushed to hospital. Armed police scrambled to the middle of Turku as a knife-wielding group reportedly rampaged through the city – a manhunt was launched to find the attackers. Police warned people to stay away from the city and reinforced security nationwide, with increased patrols and more surveillance, in case more people were involved.

Markus Laine from the National Bureau Of Investigation said, at this stage, there is only one suspect and we are investigating whether there are more people involved. "At this stage, we do not investigate this (as a terrorism attack) but the possibility has not been ruled out," he told a news conference. Horrified bystanders reported hearing screaming as a number of people were stabbed in Market Square before one person was arrested by Finnish police. Interior Minister Paula Risikko said, "We have not been able to confirm the person's identity... we have been in contact with the immigration service as the person looks like a foreigner."

Witnesses said they saw a pool of blood following the attack. "A man walked towards the ice cream stand where I work, and he hit a woman 3 times. He started running, went past my kiosk, and he had a knife in his hand," Terttu Lehtinen told Reuters. She said that some other men ran behind, apparently chasing him. "We were sitting by the market square, just enjoying the afternoon. Suddenly people started screaming and yelling, they were hysterical," said another witness, who gave her name only as Retta. "We started running towards our car and, as we got there, my boyfriend said a woman had been stabbed several times in the neck," she told Reuters. One person tweeted: "At least 5 victims, most likely some fatalities one was a woman with a baby." Others said a young man and woman were stabbed in the back during the rampage. Witness Kent Svensson told CNN: "This guy had this huge knife in his hand, and several times he was stabbing this person."



EU POLICIES ENABLE ‘FREE MOVEMENT OF TERRORISTS
Former UKIP Leader Nigel Farage Said The Free Movement Of People Also Means The Free Movement Of Terrorists

RT.com

Free movement around the European Union (EU) allows terrorists to easily cross international borders and commit mass murder, former UKIP leader Nigel Farage said. Security forces across the bloc are currently hunting for terrorists linked to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) after a van rammed into tourists on Barcelona’s Las Ramblas, killing 15. More than 130 people were injured in the attack in the Catalonian capital. However, as armed officers moved in, 22-year-old Moroccan national Younes Abouyaaquoub hijacked a car and escaped.

As a transnational manhunt gets underway, Mr Farage the former UKIP leader said EU policies are allowing terrorists to go undetected. Mr Farage and MEP took to Twitter to claim terrorists can roam freely across EU borders. The free movement of people also means the free movement of terrorists. Despite the work of agencies such as Interpol, which links police forces in 190 countries, and Europol, which combines EU police, Mr Farage pointed out that terrorists are moving freely across the bloc.

Maastricht Treaty in 1992, which allows citizens of all EU member states to move around and live in other member states without difficulty. From this, the Schengen zone was born, which allows residents to cross borders without stringent passport control.

Mr Farage, who fought for Brexit for almost two decades, blamed immigration and free movement in the European Union for terrorist attacks in the immediate aftermath of the Spain assault. He told Fox News immigration and terrorism are “linked.” "There is a direct link and relationship between the number of people you let in from different religions and different cultures and the number of terror attacks,” he said.

However, a special report delivered to the UN General Assembly in 2016 found evidence to suggest otherwise. Ben Emmerson, the special rapporteur, said: “Overly-restrictive migration policies introduced because of terrorism concerns are not justified and may in fact be damaging to state security.” Mr Farage’s latest comments, however, has proved divisive. The post was liked 250 times in less than half an hour, but was also met with a backlash from angry commenters.



JEH JOHNSON: REMOVAL OF CONFEDERATE STATUES A MATTER OF ‘HOMELAND SECURITY’
Confederate Monuments Across The Country Have Been Taken Down.

Washington Free Beacon

Former Obama administration official Jeh Johnson said the removal of Confederate statues was a matter of “public safety and homeland security”, on Sunday in the aftermath of deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., when a man was arrested for ramming his car into a crowd of counter-protesters last week and killing a woman. Confederate monuments across the country have been taken down. The furor in Charlottesville began with a group of citizens United The Right organized with a permit to protest against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. Other groups took the opportunity to add their own agenda like white supremacists, a group of people who were paid to be there and the Antifa who are against anything conservative, Republican or right political leanings.

Johnson served as Secretary of Homeland Security under Obama, and he said on ABC’s “This Week” that the monuments to Confederates were helping to rally white nationalists. “What alarms so many of us from a security perspective is that so many of the statues, the Confederate monuments, are now, modern-day, becoming symbols and rallying points for white nationalism, for neo-Nazis, for the KKK, and this is most alarming,” Johnson said. “We fought a world war against Naziism. The KKK reigned terror on African Americans for generations.”



VICE PRESIDENT PENCE SAID WE NEED ‘MORE MONUMENTS NOT LESS
We Have To Walk Away From A Desire By Some To Erase Parts Of Our History

Adan Salazar

Vice President Mike Pence weighed in on the forcible removal of statues across the country Tuesday, saying historical monuments pay tribute to the progress America has made. Speaking to Fox news, the former Indiana governor said the decision to remove monuments should be left to local governments, and public property should not be defaced in the name of political causes. “Seeing people destroy public property in the name of any cause is just simply unacceptable. Communities can have conversations about what displays happen,” the vice president declared. “But I hold the view that it’s important that we remember our past and build on the progress that we’ve made.”

Vice President Pence stated, “What we have to walk away from is a desire by some to erase parts of our history just in the name of some contemporary political cause. Obviously I think that should always be a local decision. VP Pence continued, “I’m someone who believes in more monuments, not less monuments.”

Leftists have increasingly set their sights on the removal of historical statues following President Trump’s comments regarding a demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, which left one protester dead. The president accused those calling for statues to be taken down of “changing history,” and “changing culture” – something VP Pence said is important to reflect upon. “We ought to remember our history, but we also ought to celebrate the progress we’ve made since that history.” “Rather than tearing down monuments that have graced our cities for years, we ought to be building more monuments. We ought to be celebrating the men and women who’ve helped our nation move toward a more perfect union and tell the whole story of America.”



AT LEAST HALF OF AMERICAN VOTES SIDE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP PRESERVING HISTORY AND CONFEDERATE MONUMENTS
Contrary To What Mainstream Media Conveyed Erasing Civil War History Will Not Ease Racial Tensions

Michael F. Haverluck

At least half of American voters side with President Donald Trump when it comes to preserving Confederate monuments, while only 1 in 4 believe that removing them will alleviate racial tensions, according to a recent poll. On Monday, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey divulged that 50% of registered voters in the United States stand in agreement with a tweet Trump posted about saving the Civil War memorials across the United States – instead of leaving it up to radical Leftists to decide for them and erase history – while only 37% disagree with the president’s tweet, with 12% undecided.

The Daily Signal reports that eight monuments - some not related to the Confederacy - have been attacked and/or defaced since the events in Charlottesville:

  • A 225-year-old statue of Christopher Columbus (Baltimore, MD)
  • 'Boys Who Wore Gray' statue (Durham, NC)
  • 'Peace Monument' depicting Confederate soldier laying down his arms (Atlanta, GA)
  • The Lincoln Memorial (Washington, DC)
  • Bust of Abraham Lincoln, attacked twice (Chicago, IL)
  • Statue of Father Junipero Serra (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Holocaust Memorial (Boston, MA)
  • Statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee (Duke University Chapel, Durham, NC)

More Americans behind Trump than the media shows

The survey was conducted immediately after Trump’s powerful series of Thursday tweets, where he lamented the “foolish” removal of Confederate monuments from public areas from coast to coast, referring to some of the slavery-linked artifacts as “beautiful statues” that help America remember its painful past … so it is not repeated.

“Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments,” Trump’s first Thursday post on Twitter read.

The next in the series equated removing the Civil War monuments with tearing out the pages on the Civil War in history textbooks.

“You can’t change history, but you can learn from it,” the president’s second tweet exclaimed. “Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who's next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!”

He then reminded Americans of the permanence of the removal that would take place due to the rash and heated decisions made by a handful of virulent protesters. “The beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!” Trump exclaimed to his 36.5 million Twitter followers on his third tweet. When asked about their take on the president’s view of the attack on American monuments, more voters – by double-digits – believe the gesture is more harmful than helpful.

“Just 28% believe that the removal of Confederate monuments from many cities will help race relations,” Rasmussen's report on its poll stated. “39% think the removal of those Civil War-era statues will hurt race relations instead. 26% say it would have no impact.”

Contrary to what the mainstream media has conveyed to the American public, more blacks and other ethnicities than whites in the U.S. agree with the president that erasing Civil War history will not ease racial tensions.

“Interestingly, blacks (43%) and other minority voters (42%) are more likely than whites (38%) to believe the removal of the Confederate statues will hurt race relations,” the pollsters revealed in the survey, which has a plus or minus 3% point margin of error. “35% of blacks think the statues’ removal will help race relations, but only 28% of whites and 24% of other minorities agree.”

Furthermore, Rasmussen noted that 52% of Americans think that race relations are worsening.

Statue smashing not good for America “73% of Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party by a 50% to 36% margin agree with the president that it is ‘sad to see the history and culture of our great country ripped apart,’ the researchers revealed. “54% of Democrats disagree.”

However, a partisan divide was witnessed on the issue concerning urban areas.

“53% of GOP voters believe it will hurt race relations to remove Confederate statues from many cities, but only 30% of Democrats and 36% of unaffiliated voters share that concern,” Rasmussen explained. “Slightly more Democrats (39%) think the removal of the statues will help race relations, but unaffiliated voters (29%) are less sure of that.”

The racial divide on the issue is actually much smaller than what the media has led Americans to believe.

“Just over half (52%) of both whites and other minority voters agree with Trump’s tweet,” the survey shows. “Blacks disagree by a narrow 45% to 41% margin.” More analysis of the figures shows that backers and detractors of Trump differ on the matter. “Among voters who agree with the tweet, 60% think removal of the statues will hurt race relations,” the pollsters informed. “58% of those who disagree with what the president said believe the removals will help relations between the races.”

No better under Obama … promoting historical illiteracy. A poll last summer shows that racial tensions in America were no better – if not worse – under former President Barack Obama. “In July 2016, as the presidency of the first black president was drawing to a close, 60% of all voters said race relations had gotten worse since Barack Obama’s election,” Rasmussen noted. Furthermore, it appears as if Americans’ historical illiteracy is already bad enough without the removal of historical monuments.

“68% of Americans believe Americans should be proud of the history of the United States, but 66% think most of their fellow countrymen don’t know much about their country’s past,” Rasmussen’s report indicated. “37% don’t know when the Civil War took place. The majority of voters have said in surveys for years that most school textbooks are more concerned with being politically correct than with accurately providing information.”

Corroborating Rasmussen’s findings, another poll on the monument issue indicates that most Americans strongly disagree with cities’ efforts to remove Confederate monuments from public spaces.

The Washington Post and ABC News from August 16–20 also reveals that Republicans are more supportive of Trump on the Confederate statue debate than the mainstream media lets on. "A majority of self-identified Republicans – more than 6 in 10 – approve of Trump’s response to the protests, according to the Post-ABC poll, while about 2 in 10 disapprove and the same share offer no opinion."



MONSANTO ATTEMPTS TAKEDOWN OF AGENCY LINKING ITS WEEDKILLER TO CANCER
Debate Focuses On Whether Scientists Failed To Consider German Studies On The Safety Of Glyphosate

Simon Marks-Politico.eu

Monsanto is on the attack to keep its weedkiller glyphosate on the European market, the American agrichemical giant has spent the last 6 months fighting accusations that it suppressed negative findings, even ghostwriting key research about whether the herbicide causes cancer.

Now the company is opening a new front with evidence it says debunks the only appraisal by a major world body to label glyphosate as carcinogenic. POLITICO analyzed hundreds of previously undisclosed documents from a high-profile court case in San Francisco and conducted interviews with numerous scientific experts to tell the tale of the intense battle between Monsanto and scientists over the controversial finding. Monsanto gave POLITICO exclusive access to the court documents.



UNITED NATIONS ISSUES RARE “EARLY WARNING” – SIGNALS POTENTIAL CIVIL CONFLICT IN AMERICA
It’s Clear That The United States Is Being Purposely Divided

Zero Hedge

United Nations Committee tasked with combating racism on a global scale has issued an ultra rare “early warning” for the United States citing “alarming racism” trends. As StockBoardAsset.com notes, this rare signal often preludes the potential for civil conflict. In the past 10-years, the early warning has been issued in Burundi, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria.

The United Nations Committee on the Eliminations of Racial Discrimination has called on high-level politicians and public officials of the United States to condemn “racist hate speech and crimes in Charlottesville and through the country”. Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) said, "We are alarmed by the racist demonstrations, with overtly racist slogans, chants and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and hatred."

As per UN News Centre: In a decision issued under its ‘early warning and urgent action’ procedure, the Committee, which monitors implementation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, stated “there should be no place in the world for racist white supremacist ideas or any similar ideologies that reject the core human rights principles of human dignity and equality.” In addition to the criminal investigation of the individual who ploughed his car into a crowd of peaceful protestors killing a woman, the UN experts asked the US authorities to undertake concrete measures “to address the root causes of the proliferation of such racist manifestations.”

Let’s take a moment to gain another perspective from Los Angeles Times writer Jesse Walker asks in an Op-Ed. Are we headed for a second civil war? Not inconceivable? That’s a low bar. It’s certainly possible to imagine America returning to the violence of the 1960s and ’70s, and beneath the overwrought language, that’s what some – though not all – of these civil war prophets seem to have in mind. But a near-future war with two clear sides and Gettysburg-sized casualty counts is about as likely as a war with the moon. These “new civil war” stories frequently take a bait-and-switch approach. They invoke the violence at demonstrations like the rally in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend, where a man reportedly sympathetic to Nazism drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman. In the same breath, they discuss the broad divisions separating “red” America from “blue” America. If you flip quickly between small violent clashes and big political disagreements, those big disagreements will look bloodier.

Conclusion: In our opinion, the continued division in America will only be achieved through more events such as Charlottesville that will polarize the sheep into the streets for slaughtering.

Finally we note that The United Nations dropped this little beauty in their progonstication… CERD also called on the Government to asked it to provide the necessary guarantees so that such rights are not misused to promote racist hate speech and racist crimes. In other words – speech should be free… as long as it does not hurt my feelings.



MOST ‘SAFE’ U.S. TAP WATER CONTAMINATED, ANYTHING BUT RISK-FREE
EWG Found Tens Of Thousands Of Water Utilities Contain Levels Of Cancer-Causing Cntaminants.

Mike Barrett- Natural Society

Your tap water might look crystal-clear, but there are a lot more contaminants floating around in there than you realize. An analysis of 28 million water records from nearly 500,000 American water utilities collected by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reveals most Americans’ tap water contains contaminants at levels acceptable to the government, but may actually pose health risks to the people.

The government doesn’t bother to impose requirements on hundreds of contaminants. Instead, health guidelines are issued by states and the federal government, but these are mere suggestions and goals. Amazingly, the guidelines are not enforceable by law. However, there is zero tolerance for the presence of any cancer-causing contaminant. I went to the database and put in every zip code I’ve ever lived in – you can test your water here – and each one tested positive for higher-than-acceptable levels of at least 3 carcinogens, including chloroform. The EWG found that tens of thousands of water utilities contain levels of cancer-causing contaminants. What’s more, every single zip code the group looked at turned up some form of contamination. Senior analyst at EWG, Sonya Lunder said, “We’re attempting to fill a huge gap here. I have not yet found any that have zero contaminants.” EWG President Ken Cook said on the group’s website “Americans deserve the fullest picture possible of what’s in their tap water. They won’t get that information from the government or, in many cases, from their utilities. The only place they’ll find that is EWG’s drinking water report.” Mr Cook noted that even if the contaminants in a water system fall below federal guidelines, that doesn’t mean the water is safe. This is because it has been 20 years since the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) added a new contaminant to its list of regulated contaminants.

Since more than half of the contaminants found in U.S. tap water had no regulatory limit at all, the substances can be legally present even in high concentrations, and utilities must neither test for them nor inform residents about their presence. EWG Pres Mr Cook stated,“Just because your tap water gets a passing grade from the government doesn’t always mean it’s safe. It’s time to stop basing environmental regulations on political or economic compromises, and instead listen to what scientists say about the long-term effects of toxic chemicals and empower Americans to protect themselves from pollutants even as they demand the protective action they deserve from government.” The legal limits that are set for drinking water often include political and economic compromises. They’re not purely based on health limits, so that’s part of the education process.”
Example of contamination. Findings From The Analysis

  • According to the EWG, contaminants detected in the country’s tap water included: 93 linked to an increased risk of cancer. The presence of known or likely carcinogens exceeding established federal or state health guidelines were found in more than 4,000 water systems. The contaminants pose minimal but important health risks, but levels found in tap water are not legally enforceable.
  • 78 associated with brain and nervous system damage.
  • 64 linked to developmental problems in children or fetuses.
  • 45 tied to hormone disruption.
  • 38 that potentially cause fertility problems.

  • Example of contamination.
  • Chromium-6, a carcinogen with no federal regulations, was found in the drinking water supplies serving 250 million Americans in all 50 states. If the contaminant sounds familiar, it’s likely because it was made notorious by the film “Erin Brockovich.”
  • 1,4-Dioxane, an unregulated compound detected in tap water that supplies 8.5 million people in 27 states at levels above those the EPA considers to pose a minimal cancer risk.
  • Nitrate was detected in more than 1,800 water systems in 2015, serving 7 million people in 48 states above the level that research by the National Cancer Institute shows increases the risk of cancer – a level just half of the federal government’s legal limit for nitrate in drinking water. Nitrate is common in rural communities, where the chemical comes from animal waste and agricultural fertilizers.

    AIR POLLUTION MAY BE TO BLAME FOR 20% OF DEMENTIA CASES
    Toxic Nanoparticle Air Pollution Found in Human Brain Tissue

    Julie Fidler Natural Society

    Translational Psychiatry suggests that women who are exposed to air heavily polluted by vehicle exhaust and other sources of fine particulate matter have a significantly higher risk of developing dementia. The researchers used EPA data to estimate the women’s daily particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) where they lived. PM2.5 are fine particles that are up to 2.5 micrometers in diameter. They are made up of solid and liquid droplets which are emitted from power plants and motor vehicles, and other sources of combustion. The miniscule size of PM2.5 makes them easy to inhale, and inhalation of the particles can increase the risk of heart disease, asthma, reduced lung function, and other health problems.

    For the new study researchers tracked the cognitive health of 3,647 women ages 65-79 for 10 years. All of the women were dementia-free at the beginning of the study. As part of the Women’s Health Initiative Memory Study (WHIMS), researchers assessed the participants’ cognitive function annually.

    High Levels Of Pollution, High Levels Of Risk. The team found that women who live in areas exposed to high PM2.5 levels an 81% increased risk of global cognitive decline and a 92% increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias compared to women who live in areas with low PM2.5 levels. Researchers also looked at the brain tissue of lab mice and discovered amyloid beta protein clumps the die-off of cells in the brain’s hippocampus, where memories are formed.

    Air pollution was also shown to affect a woman’s cognitive abilities even more dramatically if she carries, a gene variant which puts them at higher risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

    Using air pollution standards set by the EPA, researchers found on all those measures between those who breathed clean air and those exposed to pollution levels deemed unsafe. In the lab mice, breathing air collected over the 10 Freeway in Los Angeles led to denser brain concentrations of amyloid protein which were more likely to form dangerous clumps than breathing air that met EPA standards pre-2012. Toxic Air Affects 90% of World’s Population. Approximately 54% of the world’s population lived in urban areas as of 2014, more than 55% of the population live in the city.

    Lancet showed that the number of people in that country with Alzheimer’s disease soared from 3.7 million in 1990 to 9.2 million in 2010. These are eclipsing figures from the 2012 World Alzheimer’s Report which predicted an estimated 5.4 million dementia cases in China in 2010.

    Potential Legal Ramifications? The authors of the study, geriatric and environmental health specialists at USC, estimate that prior to the 2012 air pollution standards set by the EPA, about 21% of new cases of dementia and of accelerated cognitive decline could likely have been the result of exposure to air pollution. When the EPA devises its pollution standards, the agency is required to consider the impact they will have on the health of “vulnerable populations.” The EPA is also tasked with using its regulatory authority to protect those populations. The standards set in 2012 clearly do not adequately protect women (and mice) who are genetically predisposed to developing Alzheimer’s disease. Though air pollution has been decreasing since 2012, Dr. Jiu-Chiuan Chen, an environmental health specialist at USC’s Keck School of Medicine and the study’s senior author, said it’s not clear that even current standards are safe for aging brains, or for brains that are genetically vulnerable to Alzheimer’s.



    POOR DIET CAUSED NEARLY HALF OF ALL DEATHS IN THE U.S. IN 2012
    Find Out What To Eat More Of And What To Avoid

    Julie Fidler & Natural Society

    A study released earlier this year reveals that some 45% of all deaths in the U.S. in 2012 were due to “cardiometabolic disease,” or CMD – all because of the average diet. CMD encompasses heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Researchers say that the largest number of diet-related CMD deaths are due to high consumption of sodium, processed meats, and sugar-sweetened drinks, and low intake of nuts and seeds, seafood omega-3 fats, and fruits and vegetables.

    Published March 7, 2017 in JAMA the study found that more men than women die from diet-related causes. The researchers say that, generally speaking, the findings are consistent with the fact that men tend to have unhealthier eating habits. Additionally, there were a greater number of diet-related deaths among African-Americans and Hispanics compared with non-Hispanic whites.

    Author Renata Micha, R.D., Ph.D., assistant research professor, Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy in Boston, Massachusetts, said “These results should help identify priorities, guide public health planning, and inform strategies to alter dietary habits and improve health. Increased intakes of specific minimally processed foods, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fish, vegetable oils, and decreased intakes of salt, processed meats and sugar-sweetened beverages appear to be key relevant priorities for dietary and policy recommendations. Future studies should evaluate the potential effects of specific interventions to address the diet-related cardiometabolic mortality and reduce disparities.”

    According to Dr Micha, the estimated number of deaths that were linked to not getting enough of the healthy foods listed was at least as substantial as the number of deaths associated with eating too much of the unhealthy foods listed.

    Researchers reported that the highest number of deaths attributed to cardiometabolic disease, deaths in 2012 are list as follows:

  • High salt-sodium intake ( 66,500 deaths)
  • Not eating enough nuts and seeds (59,000 deaths)
  • Eating too much processed meats (58,000 deaths)
  • Eating too little seafood omega-3s (55,000 deaths)
  • Not eating enough vegetables (53,000 deaths)
  • Not eating enough fruits (52,500 deaths)
  • Drinking too many sugar-sweetened beverages (52,000 deaths)
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Be the Key to Preventing Most Disease
  • The study did have its limitations. For instance, the studies the researchers used were observational, which don’t prove cause-and-effect. In addition, other dietary factors may have been at play, such as added sugar and some dietary factors are potentially linked, sodium with processed meats.

    The Apocalypse Chronicles

    Internet Television

    Dead Mens Bones

    Dead Men's Bones DVD
    A 2 hour DVD in which James Lloyd refutes the false doctrine of the Divine Council Paradigm. Spreading like wildfire, prophecy teachers are claiming God turned over the Gentiles (at the Tower of Babel) to a "council" of angels and the false "gods" of the Gentiles. The heresy is based on heathen manuscripts praising Baal and, incredibly, many Christian scholars are claiming certain Old Testament verses were derived from writings dedicated to Baal!

    The Matter Of The Mingling

    The Matter Of The Mingling
    The prophetic expectation of the return of the Fallen Ones (Nephilim in the Hebrew) described in Genesis 6:4 has now reached unprecedented levels of interest. In The Matter Of The Mingling, prophecy figure James Lloyd shows how this controversial subject is an indication the body of Christ has gone astray, and this incendiary book proves it.

    Monster DVD

    Monster
    This enlightening DVD details how the final Beast government prophecies point directly to America. Still clinging to the centuries old fraud of the so called Revived Roman Empire, millions of believers are still being fed egregious lies from their pastors and prophecy leaders.

    Dragons Book

    Dragons Of Esdraelon
    The place/name Esdraelon is the Greek word for the Hebrew Jezreel – a very significant locale adjacent to Megiddo – the ancient locale seen in Revelation as Armageddon. In this perceptive work, James shows how the evil Spirits, seen in the Old Testament in geographic proximity to Old Covenant Israel, have now spread around the world as they switch from territorial to global control of all the nations.

    Light To The Nations

    Light To The Nations
    This book includes the astonishing prophetic metaphor wherein Jonah, symbolizing Old Covenant Israel, resists the call to prophesy to the Gentiles, and sails to Europe to escape the LORD's will. Swallowed up in symbolic Death – and then deposited back onto the land, where the Christ rejecting state re-emerges in 1948 as an involuntary witness, Jonah is an important figure in prophecy. Meanwhile, true Spiritual Israel is seen passing through the sea, walking in the will of the LORD, at the Exodus, even as the earthdwellers (the Egyptian host in the text) are destroyed.

    Counterfeit Antichrist

    Counterfeit Antichrist
    Many Christian preachers and prophecy authors are now embracing a variation on the ancient "revived Roman Empire" lie with a scenario in which the end times "Antichrist" arrives as a powerful leader from the Islamic world. Leaning on Islamic prophecy itself, in the process of presenting their case in books, television programs, and speaking engagements, these false prophets are pitching another gospel (II Corinthians 11:4) which fails to recognize the truth about the Spiritual entities – commonly identified as Antichrist and The False Prophet -- found in Revelation.

    Culting Book

    Culting Of Christianity
    The Culting Of Christianity links Egyptian mysticism to leaders in the early church, as well as Jewish opponents of Christianity. An incendiary breakthrough, James conclusively shows the idea of a pre-tribulational evacuation was written in religious documents before Jesus was born. And it doesn't stop there, as James tracks how Occultic writings influenced the development of early Christian doctrine.

    Even He Is The Eighth

    Even He Is The 8th
    The mysterious passage in Revelation, related to the Beast in prophecy, is one of the most enigmatic themes in Scripture. Now, in the new book Even He Is The Eighth, prophecy figure James Lloyd has developed a coherent, compelling probe of how this subject leads to far more than the identification of Antichrist, as it breaks down the processes involved in how mankind responds to Spiritual stimuli.

    Collective Book

    The Collective
    The Collective details how the Spiritual entity is essentially the opposite of the body of Christ. Symbolically articulated in the book of Revelation as the Image of the Beast, the Spiritual formation could also be described as the body of Antichrist. This polarity places the body of Christ on one end of the Spiritual spectrum, and the body of Antichrist on the other.
