Three New Studies Reveal Children Are Dumbed Down by Pesticide Exposure in Womb

Does it ever seem like the population is being "dumbed down"? Maybe that is literally happening -- even before birth. And at least one of the culprits appears to be organophosphate pesticides that are widely used on food crops throughout the U.S.

The evidence for the intelligence robbing effect of these poisons isn't some obscure study in lab animals, either. This is a major discovery involving human children in multiple studies.


Activists Occupy Oil Rig in Fight to Prevent Arctic Drilling

The fight to stop the global oil industry exploring the pristine deep waters of the Arctic has been dubbed the new cold war, and early on Friday it escalated as environmental activists from 12 countries occupied the world's second largest rig on its way from Turkey to Greenland to drill among the icebergs.

The protesters found the 52,000-tonne semi-submersible platform Leiv Eiriksson at around midnight, steaming due west at a stately six knots in the sea of Marmara, heading for the Dardanelle straits and the open Mediterranean. It took four more hours for Greenpeace to bring in its inflatables and a further 50 minutes in the choppy moonlit sea to intercept it.


Debt Will Hit £84,000 a Family in Four Years as Mortgages and Credit Cards Push Borrowing to Record Levels

Families will be crippled by a spiralling debt crisis over the next four years, equal to an average of £84,000 per household, figures revealed yesterday.By 2015, total household debt from mortgages to loans and credit cards will hit a record-breaking £2,126billion.

The debt mountain is laid bare in documents published by the Government’s spending watchdog, the Office for Budget Responsibility. It has massively increased its forecast for the size of Britain’s debt in recent months.


Drug Injection Delays Puberty

Children with supposed "Gender Identity Disorder" (GID), a rare condition involving sexual confusion, that are having a hard time deciding whether they want to be male or female can now choose to artificially delay puberty while they figure it out. A recent report in The Telegraph explains that a monthly drug injection will prevent sexual development in children to give them more time to make up their minds about having a sex change -- and kids as young as 12 are eligible to receive it.


US Deems 9/11 Responders Terrorists?

Thousands of Americans, who risked their lives to save lives during the 9/11 terror attacks on US soil, will soon be screened by the FBI terrorism watch list.

A host of 9/11 first responders, who saved countless lives, will now have their personal data put through a government terror database and will be considered possible terrorists under a provision in James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act -- a bill named after an NYPD detective who died of 9/11 -- related illnesses, The Huffington Post reported on Thursday.


DHS Launches New Alert System Designed to Terrorize Public

In order to keep the phony war on manufactured terrorism in your face 24-7, the government has trashed its old and absurd color-coded system in favor of a new and more obnoxious system.

“The terrorist threat facing our country has evolved significantly over the past ten years,” said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, regardless of the fact that there has not been a staged terror attack since cave Muslims did or didn’t slam airliners into skyscrapers and presumably the most defended building on earth.'


UK War Boss: Libya is the Next Afghanistan

Liam Fox compared the crisis in Libya to the war in Afghanistan yesterday, opening Britain to the prospect of a decade-long battle to oust Colonel Gaddafi.

The Defence Secretary said Britain was committed to training the Libyan rebels, in the same way as the Army is seeking to build up the Afghan security forces.

His words, during a Nato meeting in Italy, immediately sparked fears that Britain risks being sucked into an open-ended commitment in Libya.'


Besieging Belarus: Next on the Globalists' Chopping Block

With Libya preparing to face Western troops, and Syria fending off an overtly foreign-backed uprising, other nations long accused of being "rouge" by the global corporate-financier oligarchy are bracing for what is inevitably to come. While earlier assurances were made to the House of Saud, it seems even they are making provisions to secure their kingdom against their own society unhinging, fueled by both years of draconian brutality and now US funded sedition.

The groundwork has been laid for this global upheaval to spread as far as Moscow and Beijing, however a little known republic is getting increasingly more attention from the corporate-financier oligarchy, the Eastern European nation of Belarus. With 9.5 million people and sitting right across the border from Moscow, it serves as the next logical step for NATO's expansion toward the goal of encircling Russia.'


A Government of Monsanto, by Monsanto, and for Monsanto

With help from the FDA and USDA, the biotech industry is set to completely take over our food supply with genetically modified ingredients, irregardless of the wishes of “we the people.” Through collusion, subterfuge, and a bit of back-door manipulation, Monsanto can write it’s own ticket with the U.S. Federal Government’s stamp of approval. If the rules get in the way, then change the rules, or at least their interpretation, to fit the situation.

Monsanto is now ready to grow soybeans that are genetically modified to produce omega-3 fatty acids. The fact that the company is doing this comes as no surprise, but the important thing to note is the process that the FDA goes through to approve these types of substances as Generally Recognized as Safe, or GRAS, is to simply rubber-stamp the Monsanto application, no questions asked.'

Aleister Crowley: His Elite Ties and His Legacy

The man who revelled in being called “Great Beast 666″ and dubbed by the press as the “Wickedest Man in History” was more than a theatrical occultist: Aleister Crowley is at the heart of one of the most influential movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. He also had ties with some of the world’s most powerful figures, even working with the British Intelligence Agency MI-5. This article describes the life and works of occultist Aleister Crowley and looks at his ties with the world elite which facilitated the propagation of the Thelema.'


Feds to Supreme Court: Allow Warrantless GPS Monitoring

The Obama administration is urging the Supreme Court to allow the government, without a court warrant, to affix GPS devices on suspects’ vehicles to track their every move.

The Justice Department, saying “a person has no reasonable expectation of privacy in his movements from one place to another,” is demanding the justices undo a lower court decision that reversed the conviction and life sentence of a cocaine dealer whose vehicle was tracked via GPS for a month without a court warrant.'


Libyan War Gets Weird; Defending the Indefensible

Even those who have studied for years the criminal consolidation of this planet under the global corporate-financier oligarchy may be noticing that the war in Libya is turning into something new and unprecedented. The lies and propaganda have hit an all time high and no article encapsulates this better than the bizarre, grotesque piece out of the New York Times titled, "Inferior Arms Hobble Rebels in Libya War."

In it, the glorious, heroic rebels are described as under-armed, which has caused them to use weapons such as landmines and rockets that indiscriminately target civilians and government troops alike. They wield knives that they, "want to stuff into Qaddafi’s heart," and 400 rifles sent by Qatar in direct violation of the arms embargo included in UNSC r.1973.'



Boris Johnson and Violence

Phone 0207 096 3708 now (+44 207 096 3708 from outside the UK). Trust me, just phone. You will be listening to a conversation between two men, one of whom later became Mayor of London, and still is, and one of whom was later convicted of armed robbery. And that is Mayor of London, not Mayor of Chicago.

This has not gone as viral as it deserves. A week ago today Boris Johnson held a meeting on how to tackle youth violence. But here is a tape from Tim Ireland of Boris Johnson engaged in a conversation with Darius Guppy about having someone beaten up. While Johnson is not the one urging the beating, he does not protest against the idea that someone be given “two black eyes and a cracked rib”, and appears more worried about possible political fallout or attachment to him. There is a reference to someone “going through the files”.'

Obama's Mexicogate?

A secret operation to run guns across the border to Mexican drug cartels — overseen by U.S. government agents — threatens to become a major scandal for the Obama administration.

The operation, called “Fast and Furious,” was run out of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) office in Phoenix, Arizona. ATF sanctioned the purchase of weapons in U.S. gun shops and tracked the smuggling route to the Mexican border. Reportedly, more than 2,500 firearms were sold to straw buyers who then handed off the weapons to gunrunners under the nose of ATF.

But once across the border, the agency seemed to lose track of the weapons. Hundreds of AK-47s and Barrett .50 caliber rifles — favorites of warring drug cartels —made it easily into the hands of some of Mexico’s most ruthless crime organizations.'


Euro-American Land Invasion of Libya Imminent

As if hard-wired for theft of other people's lands, the European Union is preparing to put thousands of its once-and-forever colonial boots on the ground in Libya. "The mass ground onslaught may well commence with the imminent deployment of the European Union’s so-called 'battle groups' – multinational military units of about 1,500 men each." Libyan leader Moamar Gaddafi, who had earlier offered to accept some humanitarian assistance in Misrata, vowed to fight any foreign soldiers on Libyan territory.'


Japan's Radiation 20,000 Times Limit

The leaked contaminated water contained approximately 5,000 terabecquerels of radioactive substances, which is 20,000 times the annual allowable limit for the plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said on Thursday.

TEPCO added that 520 tons of radioactive water had leaked from reactors at the Fukushima plant, which was severely damaged during the 9.0-magnitude quake and the ensuing tsunami on March 11.'


France Urges Palestinian Statehood

French Ambassador to the UN Gerard Araud told a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East on Thursday that “recognition of the state of Palestine is one of the options which France is considering, with its European partners, with a view to creating a political horizon” to relaunch the Middle East talks.

Direct talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) broke down in late September after an Israeli partial moratorium on settlement construction expired.

Palestinians have said they will not negotiate while Israel's illegal settlement construction continues in the occupied West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem), areas they want as part of a future state.'


US Begins Drone Strikes on Libya

US President Barack Obama has approved the use of armed predator drones to attack targets in Libya as the UN warns about the humanitarian situation.

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates says American drones have carried out their first mission in Libya on Thursday, The Associated Press reported.

Israeli Car Ad Boasts Running Over of Palestinian Kids

A new photo advertisement of a Japanese car in Israel has drawn considerable outrage for its implied promotion of running over Palestinian kids.

The commercial advertisement, published by a Subaru dealership in Israel, features the scene photographed last year, when an Israeli settler struck two Palestinian children with his car in the East al-Quds (Jerusalem) neighborhood of Silwan before speeding away, Xinhua reported on Thursday.

What an Eyesore: Claims Sky 3D TV Makes Viewers Feel Queasy Prompts Broadcaster Investigation

Sky is investigating its 3D TV following claims viewers feel queasy when they watch it. The broadcaster, which launched Europe's first 3D television channel last year, has started an investigation to get to the bottom of the problem.

It follows claims of dizziness and disorientation as well as headaches and double vision. Karen Sparrow, from the UK Association of Optometrists, said: 'The short-term effects of watching 3D are the same for adults and children and could include, in extreme cases, headaches and double vision.

She said even when you stop watching 3D your brain is creating a form of binocular dysphoria, which can last a few seconds but perhaps for longer.

Israel 'Supplied Arms to Argentina During Falklands War'

Israel secretly supplied arms and equipment to Argentina during the Falklands War due to Prime Minister Menachem Begin's personal hatred of the British, a new book discloses.

As the British Task Force sent to reclaim the islands after the 1982 Argentine invasion of the Falklands began to get the upper hand, Argentina's ruling military junta was left with few choices from which to source replacements for equipment lost in war.

But according to 'Operation Israel: the rearming of Argentina during the dictatorship (1976/1983)' the junta found that Begin was willing to strike an agreement.


Radioactive Iodine Found in Breast Milk of Japanese Mothers

The government faced calls for a full investigation into the impact of the nuclear disaster on mothers and babies following the discovery.

The radiation contamination came to light after tests were conducted on breast milk samples taken from nine women living northeast or east of Tokyo.

Four of these women were found to be contaminated, with the highest reading of 36.3 becquerels of radioactive iodine per kg detected in the milk of the mother of an eight-month-old baby in Kashiwa, Chiba prefecture.


Nanoparticles Destroy Soil and the Environment, Study Finds

Though some might argue that nanotechnology offers benefits not afforded by normal molecules, the environmental and human health consequences of this "breakthrough" technology appear dire, to say the least. New research published in the Journal of Hazardous Materials explains that nanoparticles damage beneficial soil bacteria and ultimately ruin plants' ability to uptake necessary nitrogen.


Radioactive Spills at UK Plants Exposed

A leaked report has unveiled details of two incidents of radioactive spills and a breakdown in an emergency cooling system at the UK nuke plants in the past 3 months.

UK Plans Pre-Emptive Arrests Of Royal Wedding Protestors

Keen to prevent the scenes of disorder which accompanied the TUC march last month, the Metropolitan Police says it plans to identify and potentially arrest known trouble-makers in advance of the wedding on April 29.

Senior officers say that 60 anarchists arrested during the TUC march have bail conditions which prevent them entering central London two days before the wedding and two days after, as well as the actual day itself.

Police “spotters” – normally used to combat football hooligans - will be used throughout the country to watch those on bail, and other anarchists who have previously committed public order offences at demonstrations, to ensure they are not planning on disrupting the wedding.'

The file contains the latitude and longitude of the phone's recorded coordinates along with a timestamp, meaning that anyone who stole the phone or the computer could discover details about the owner's movements using a simple program.

For some phones, there could be almost a year's worth of data stored, as the recording of data seems to have started with Apple's iOS 4 update to the phone's operating system, released in June 2010.'

Fluoridation Makes us Stupid and Unhealthy

A recent Chinese study concluded that low dose sodium fluoride in drinking water diminishes IQ, especially among children. This is the twenty-fourth such international study with the same conclusion. Sodium fluoride has also been linked to reduced fertility and lower sperm counts.

Other health issues arise from the basic function of sodium fluoride's ability to block thyroid production. It was once used to inhibit hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). So if your thyroid is normal, it will be reduced to hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid), which leads to a plethora of health problems.'

Bankruptcy in America

Many banks are insolvent, yet are allowed to stay in business. Being allowed to keep two sets of books is obscuring their real estate loan problems. This is the shadow inventory you sometimes hear about. Those millions of homes “that exist, but they don’t.” They presently admit to owning some 1 million homes they cannot sell, which is almost 25% higher than last year. If you put everything together you could be looking at an 8-year supply. Making matters worse lenders are holding homes on the books at values 40% higher than what they are worth. This is very similar to what is going on in Spain presently. We’ll say this one more time. Most major banks and some middle tier and small institutions are broke and you are being lied to regarding their condition.'


The Energy Vampires

To hear the "humanitarian" interventionists tell it, the NATO alliance is currently bombing Libya in order to avert an alleged "massacre" that may – or may not – happen if Moammar Gadhafi gets his hands on the rebels now holding the eastern province known as Cyrenaica. It’s just a coincidence that Libya is a major oil producer, and that the NATO allies demanding the dictator’s ouster are thirsty for the stuff.

If you believe otherwise, well then you’ve fallen victim to a "conspiracy theory," as any number of unrepentant neocons will tell you. During the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, they were disdainful of the claim that their pet project was a thinly disguised oil grab, and still deny it. Yet now the documentary evidence is in, and it looks like the "war for oil" crowd was right, at least insofar as it concerns Tony Blair’s key supporting role as Bush’s British lapdog.

Japan's PM Declares No-go Zone

Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan has declared a plan which prevents people from returning to evacuated areas around the disaster-stricken Fukushima nuclear plant.

Kan made the announcement on Thursday saying the no-go zone covers an area of 20 kilometers (12 miles).

Watching Too Much TV Harms Kid's Heart

Children as young as six who watch too much TV are at a higher risk of developing heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes later on in life.

Sydney University researchers found that children as young as six or seven who spend most of their time watching TV have narrower arteries at the back of their eyes than those who regularly participate in outdoor activities.

Doctors consider narrowing of the retinal arterioles, the tiny arteries at the back of the eye, as a barometer of what's happening elsewhere in the body. The condition may be a sign of conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes in the individual.

The E.U. Cracks Up

Political upheaval has hit Finland, and it’s merely a foreshadowing of bigger changes ahead. The core issue is whether Finland ought to be paying for bailouts for other EU states. In reaction to establishment support for the bailout, voters ousted the pro-bailout ruling party and gave an upset victory to the bailout-critical conservative party. Against every expectation, the eternal rule of the social democrats is at an end.

But most striking of all are the gains made by a previously invisible party called True Finns. This is the only party to take a hardcore position: no bailouts at all. It also so happens that this party is predictably nationalist on issues of trade and immigration. But that’s not the source of the appeal. The bailout is what is on everyone’s mind. And you know that the anger must be palpable if it fired up the usually sleepy world of Finnish politics.'


Origins and Techniques of Monarch Mind Control

Monarch Programming is a method of mind control used by numerous organizations for covert purposes. It is a continuation of project MK-ULTRA, a mind-control program developed by the CIA, and tested on the military and civilians.

While mass media ignores this issue, over 2 million Americans have gone through the horrors of this program. This article looks at the origins of Monarch programming and some of its methods and symbolism.'
