Kankerpatiënt te grote melkkoe om te laten genezen

De kankerindustrie in de VS is echt “big business”, en deze industrietak kan het zich niet veroorloven dat iemand een middel vindt om deze vreselijke ziekte te overwinnen. Als er een redelijk goedkoop, uiterst effectief middel zou zijn om kanker te bestrijden, dan zou de hele industrietak ineenstorten.

Het farmaceutische cartel zal dat niet laten gebeuren.
Uit onderzoek is gebleken dat aan het begin van de vorige eeuw, in de VS slechts één op de 20 personen kanker kreeg. In de periode rond 1940 was dat gestegen naar één op de 17, en in de zeventiger jaren was het al één op de tien. Vandaag de dag? Schrikt niet: (in de VS) zal één op de drie personen de een of andere vorm van kanker ontwikkelen tijdens zijn of haar leven. Lees meer.

Dit is het bewijs voor een op hande zijnde recessie

Terwijl de Federal Reserve hint op het verhogen van de rente, zijn er 2 indicatoren die ontegenzeggelijk uitwijzen dat een nieuwe recessie reeds van start is gegaan in de Verenigde Staten. Systeemkenner Mike Maloney diept een bericht op Zerohedge verder uit en overtuigt dat deze trend een nieuwe recessie heeft verraden.

Waar de reguliere media de oren van de massa strelen met positieve geluiden vanuit de Federal Reserve die klaarstaan om de rente iets verder op te trekken omdat macro-economische omstandigheden dit zogezegd zouden toelaten, ontwikkelt er zich op de achtergrond een trend dat lijnrecht tegenover deze schijnbaar positieve ontwikkeling staat.

The Broken Chessboard: Brzezinski Gives Up on Empire

The main architect of Washington’s plan to rule the world has abandoned the scheme and called for the forging of ties with Russia and China. While Zbigniew Brzezinski’s article in The American Interest titled “Towards a Global Realignment” has largely been ignored by the media, it shows that powerful members of the policymaking establishment no longer believe that Washington will prevail in its quest to extent US hegemony across the Middle East and Asia. Brzezinski, who was the main proponent of this idea and who drew up the blueprint for imperial expansion in his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, has done an about-face and called for a dramatic revising of the strategy.

Here’s an excerpt from the article in the AI: “As its era of global dominance ends, the United States needs to take the lead in realigning the global power architecture. Read more.

Turkish special forces enter Syria



The office of the Turkish prime minister says the army has entered northern Syria to conduct an operation against Daesh terrorists

The operation is launched with the backing of US warplanes on the border town of Jarablus. Turkish media say the town has also been hit by heavy Turkish artillery fire and airstrikes.

It comes after foreign-backed militants announced an upcoming assault from Turkish territory on Jarablus. They said it is aimed at preventing the Kurdish YPG militants from taking over the town. Turkey considers the Kurdish armed group as a terrorist organization.

It is not clear whether the foreign-backed militants have entered Syria along with Turkish forces.

“Chemtrails" not real, say leading atmospheric science experts

Washington, DC— Well-understood physical and chemical processes can easily explain the alleged evidence of a secret, large-scale atmospheric spraying program, commonly referred to as “chemtrails” or “covert geoengineering,” concludes a new study from Carnegie Science, University of California Irvine, and the nonprofit organization Near Zero.

Some groups and individuals erroneously believe that the long-lasting condensation trails, or contrails, left behind aircraft are evidence of a secret large-scale spraying program. They call these imagined features “chemtrails.” Adherents of this conspiracy theory sometimes attribute this alleged spraying to the government and sometimes to industry. Read more.

CIA Breaks Its Silence On “New Silk Road”: Says Challenging The BRICS And AIIB Was A “Mistake”

By Rusticus For the geopolitically alert audience, there’s little worthwhile on television these days (assuming there ever was); but for those willing to wade through the Matrix Box’s flashing imagery of disinformation, entrainment technology, and trash TV, a select few programs contain the occasional glimmer of Deep Political lucidity from a typically tight-lipped “ruling class.”

One such show is MSNBC’s Morning Joe, due in no small part to co-host Mika Brzezinski’s segment that I’ve come to lovingly refer to as Conversations with Daddy Zbigniew. Another long-running example, the “prestigious” PBS program hosted by Bilderberger and Trilateral Commission member Charlie Rose, provides unparalleled access in this regard – that is, when he’s not busy passing off celebrity interviews as “cultured” and “sophisticated” or even “newsworthy.” Read more + video.

Volgens de klacht waren de Oekraïense autoriteiten op de hoogte van de gevaren van het vliegen boven de conflict zone van oostelijk Oekraïne, maar hebben zij bewust geen maatregelen getroffen wat resulteerde in de dood van hun familieleden op 31 juli 2014. Lees meer.

Verenigde Staten, terrorist nummer 1

Het militair-industrieel complex aan de macht.

Volgens de New York Times van 15 oktober 2014 (*) liet Obama de CIA een onderzoek doen naar wat het stiekem financieren en leveren van wapens (‘covert aid’), met de bedoeling onwelgevallige regimes te ontwrichten en ten val te brengen, de VS had opgeleverd. Dat was omdat hij wilde weten of het zin had Syrische rebellen op te zetten tegen het regime Assad.

De vraag die Obama niet stelde was waarom de VS het recht zou hebben (anders dan het recht van de sterkste) gewapende opstanden te organiseren in landen waarvan het regime ze niet aanstaat en hoe de VS zou reageren als die landen opstandige groepen in de VS van wapens en training zou voorzien om de Amerikaanse regering ten val te brengen.

Joegoslavië-tribunaal spreekt Milosevic vrij van oorlogsmisdaden

Het International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), in de omgang wel Joegoslavië-tribunaal genoemd, heeft vastgesteld dat de voormalige Servische president Slobodan Milosevic niet verantwoordelijk was voor oorlogsmisdaden die werden gepleegd tijdens de Bosnische oorlog van 1992 tot ’95.

De kamer die de Bosnisch-Servische president Radovan Karadzic wegens oorlogsmisdaden tot 40 jaar gevangenisstraf veroordeelde, concludeerde unaniem dat Slobodan Milosevic geen onderdeel was van een ‘gezamenlijke misdadige onderneming‘ die het tijdens de Bosnische oorlog op Moslims en Kroaten gemunt had.

Zika Psyop to Justify Releasing Millions of Bill Gates' GM Mosquitoes



Classic Hegelian dialectic: we are seeing a ridiculous level of fearmongering over what has predominantly been a benign virus for decades right on cue to justify the proposed "emergency" release of millions of billionaire eugenicist Bill Gates' $20 million genetically modified mosquitoes on a strongly opposed public in what will essentially be a giant science experiment with unpredictable results... problem — reaction — solution style.

Erdogan: West supports coup plotter, terrorists



Turkey’s President Rejeb Tayyib Erdogan has unleashed his fiercest verbal attack against the country’s Western allies for the first time since the failed coup in Mid-July. He says the West is supporting the coup plotters.

Erdogan particularly criticized the United States questioning the possibility of a strategic partnership between Washington and Ankara if America refuses to extradite US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen.

The Turkish president said the plot was hatched outside Turkey. According to Erdogan those who were thought to be Ankara’s friends stood by the putschists and terrorists. The Turkish president vowed to have no mercy on those who tried to unseat him.

Erdogan also talked about quick implementation of economic reforms, reconstruction of the intelligence apparatus and the army.

‘EU laat oren hangen naar suikerlobby’

De kapitaalkrachtige voedingsindustrie slaagt erin EU-regelgeving die het gebruik van suiker moet terugdringen, tegen te houden of te ondermijnen.

Door de invloedrijke lobbypraktijken van de voedingsindustrie verliest Europa de strijd tegen hartziekten, zwaarlijvigheid en diabetes als gevolg van overmatig suikergebruik. Dat stelt lobbywaakhond Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) in het rapport A spoonful of sugar. Lees meer.

Research reveals cancer pathway to spreading through the body

Scientists show role oxygen plays in cell movement

Cancer cells need oxygen to survive, as do most other life forms, but scientists had never tracked their search for oxygen in their early growth stages until now -- a step toward a deeper understanding of one way cancer spreads that could help treat the disease.

In a paper published online by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, bioengineers from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania report results of their work showing how sarcoma cells in mice pursue a path toward greater concentrations of oxygen, almost as if they were following a widening trail of breadcrumbs.

Nederland, surveillancestaat

Vandaag viel mijn oog door toedoen van Petra op een artikel met de titel ‘Hij werd met zak over hoofd afgevoerd alsof hij Holleeder was‘. Ik zal even kort samenvatten wat er hier precies gebeurde: Rob C. werd in zijn nieuwe woning door de politie aangehouden. En dus bepaald niet subtiel of respectvol, iets wat je van je allerbeste vrienden toch wel zou verwachten.

Rob werd aangehouden omdat hij “via de inlogcode” van zijn buurvrouw online was. Voor veel mensen waarschijnlijk een valide opmerking. Maar voor mensen die iets van IT weten, oogt dit best wel raar. Lees meer.

Wie is terrorjournalist Richard Gutjahr?

Stel je bent journalist en je woont in München. Je boekt voor jezelf een lang weekend Nice om daar te ervaren hoe het is om Bevrijdingsdag, 14 juli, mee te maken. Je zit op je balkon en er komt een witte vrachtauto stapvoets voorbij rijden. Alle reden natuurlijk om je camera ( telefoon ) te pakken en de stapvoets rijdende vrachtwagen te filmen. Hoe vreemd is het immers dat in een drukke stad een vrachtwagen stapvoets rijdt tijdens een nationale feestdag? Heel vreemd! Not!

Richard Gutjahr is de naam van de journalist die dit overkwam. Geluk? Lees meer + video.

Schnabbelende artsen onderhouden warme banden met Big Pharma

Sommige medicijnen leveren nauwelijks gezondheidswinst op, maar leiden mogelijk wel tot ernstige bijwerkingen. Desondanks worden dergelijke geneesmiddelen soms toch toegelaten tot de markt. Farmaceutische bedrijven krijgen daarbij hulp van arts-onderzoekers die in ruil voor een royale vergoeding fungeren als reclamezuil.

Onder artsen heerst teleurstelling over de nieuwste generatie statines en antidepressiva. De middelen blijken nauwelijks effect te hebben. Dat Big Pharma dit soort producten toch op de markt brengt, verbaast en frustreert artsen. Lees meer.
