Suppression Of Great Truth Is The Norm It Seems

Antibiotics are “a cruel and criminal joke” for the most part. Antibiotics ALMOST ALWAYS do “more damage than good”… EVEN IF THEY KILL the bacterial issue they were supposed to kill. This is because even a single course of antibiotics can mess up a person’s gut flora for decades, if not his or her entire life. And “good gut flora” is CRITICAL to human health

( Erythromycin is especially cruel to me. Two days after the course of medication ends I go for the Acidophilus. )

The Cancer Industry EXPOSED! Ways to Prevent and CURE Cancer ►

It turns out, THC when ingested in highly concentrated forms (such as EATING CANNABIS OIL) will attack any mutated cells in your body while strengthening and rejuvenating the healthy cells. 

Intelligent people realize that the scientific method does not work by *d
isproving* information or people. Cannabinoids are listed on the National Cancer Institute website and once you see how fast the cure works, the cognitive dissonance wears off pretty quickly.

Bin Laden film leak was referred to Justice; leaker top Obama official

Read more here:

The case is emblematic of an ongoing debate over what information the government deems to be a secret, who can disclosure classified material and to what degree leaks of such information jeopardize national security.
Obama’s Justice Department has prosecuted a record number of U.S. officials for leaking secret information to the news media that critics contend shouldn’t have been classified or did no harm to national security. The most prominent case involves the ongoing prosecution of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is accused of providing thousands of secret and confidential diplomatic and military documents to Wikileaks, the online whistleblowing organization.
In a Dec. 6 report, a presidential advisory panel that studied the classification issue found that “the current classification system is fraught with problems. In its mission to support national security, it keeps too many secrets, and keeps them too long; it is overly complex; it obstructs desirable information sharing inside of government and with the public.”
“A culture persists that defaults to the avoidance of risk rather than its proper management*,” the Public Interest Declassification Board said in recommending an extensive overhaul to the system.

The Visible Government 
How the U.S. Intelligence Community Came Out of the Shadows
The Invisible Government, was published in 1964 and it was groundbreaking, shadow-removing, illuminating.  It caused a fuss from its very first paragraph, which was then a shockeroo: “There are two governments in the United States today. One is visible. The other is invisible.”
I mean, what did Americans know at the time about an invisible government even the president didn't control that was lodged deep inside the government they had elected?
By 1964, the “U.S. Intelligence Community,” or IC, had nine members, including the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and the National Security Agency (NSA).  As Wise and Ross portrayed it, the IC was already a labyrinthine set of secret outfits with growing power.  It was capable of launching covert actions worldwide, with a “broad spectrum of domestic operations,” the ability to overthrow foreign governments, some involvement in shaping presidential campaigns, and the capacity to plan operations without the knowledge of Congress or full presidential control.  “No outsider,” they concluded, “can tell whether this activity is necessary or even legal.  No outsider is in a position to determine whether or not, in time, these activities might become an internal danger to a free society.”  Modestly enough, they called for Americans to face the problem and bring “secret power” under control.  (“If we err as a society, let it be on the side of control.”)
NSA (once known jokingly as “no such agency” because of its deep cover).  Like its geospatial cousin, it has been in a period of explosive growth, budgetary and otherwise, capped off by the construction of a “heavily fortified” $2 billion data center in Bluffdale, Utah.  According to NSA expert James Bamford, when finished in 2013 that center will “intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks.”  He adds: “Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails -- parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital ‘pocket litter.’” We’re talking not just about foreign terrorists here but about the intake and eternal storage of vast reams of material from American citizens, possibly even you.
Or consider a little-known post-9/11 creation, the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), which is not even a separate agency in the IC, but part of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.  According to the Wall Street Journal, the Obama administration has just turned that organization into “a government dragnet, sweeping up millions of records about U.S. citizens -- even people suspected of no crime.”  It has granted the NCTC the right, among other things “to examine the government files of U.S. citizens for possible criminal behavior, even if there is no reason to suspect them... copy entire government databases -- flight records, casino-employee lists, the names of Americans hosting foreign-exchange students, and many others. The agency has new authority to keep data about innocent U.S. citizens for up to five years, and to analyze it for suspicious patterns of behavior. Previously, both were prohibited.”
The Agency runs what are called “covert” drone wars in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia in which most strikes are promptly reported in the press and about which the administration clearly leaked information it wanted in the New York Times on the president’s role in picking those to die.

Toxic Train Wreck Exposes Weakness in Federal Chemical Policy

There are immediate concerns—that residents were not adequately informed about the exposure risks, or that in the initial emergency response, workers may not have received appropriate protective gear.
Paulsboro is just one of the latest in a spate of recent disasters in industries that handle massive amounts of toxins with minimal oversight.But in the backdrop looms what many see as a chronic government failure to uphold key aspects of federal environmental safety law. In a joint statement following the incident, Greenpeace, the Virginia-based Center for Health, Environment & Justice (CHEJ), and the New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC) renewed their demand for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to revamp chemical safety rules under the Clean Air Act. They want Washington to set new rules to push industrial facilities to implement “inherently safer technologies” or safer chemical processes whenever feasible.

 The National Conversation in the Wake of Littleton is Missing the Mark

 The issue is not just violence in the media but the construction of violent masculinity as a cultural norm. From rock and rap music and videos, Hollywood action films, professional and college sports, the culture produces a stream of images of violent, abusive men and promotes characteristics such as dominance, power, and control as means of establishing or maintaining manhood.

Pollack said Mississippi has a lot of potential to be greener. State public policy could play a major role in that.

“The potential is there,” he said. “It just requires political action and political will, a political system that puts a priority on green economic growth, and growth that is sustainable instead of growth that over time is chipping away from the resources future generations will depend on. The dirty economic model is one in which we are undercutting the very building blocks we need for sustained long-term growth. It is by definition unsustainable. That is why we push for sustainable economic development so future generations can experience the same type of prosperity that we have.”
