NO on Proposition 1 – The Water Bond

The Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (AB1471), the Water Bond, is on the ballot this November for voter approval. Proponents want us to believe that it will ‘save’ water by building dams and reservoirs. It won’t. It is designed to remove dams, not create them. It supports wetlands restoration, not water storage.

In the beginning, this bill called for the removal of four Klamath River dams. The language has been changed to make its intent less obvious, and the intent stands.

79732. (a) In protecting and restoring California rivers, lakes, streams, and watersheds, the purposes of this chapter are to:

(4) Protect and restore aquatic, wetland, and migratory bird ecosystems, including fish and wildlife corridors and the acquisition of water rights for instream flow.

(6) Remove barriers to fish passage.

That’s dam removal.

Internet Tax Moratorium Held Hostage by “Dirty Harry ” Reid

______________________________________________

Without further Congressional action, states and localities will begin taxing Internet access as soon as December 11th. A permanent moratorium, the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, has passed the House with a simple voice vote, demonstrating bipartisan agreement about the importance of a tax-free Internet.

Unfortunately, Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid has refused to introduce the bill to the Senate, preferring to hold out for a remote sales tax increase through the so-called “Marketplace Fairness Act” (MFA), a highly controversial issue. Polling shows Americans overwhelmingly oppose Reid’s scheme to tax online sales, but a large majority of Americans can get behind a permanent continuance of a tax-free Internet.

Nonetheless, in a classic show of divisive politics, Harry Reid has held hostage the freedom of the Internet to pass a tax increase on Americans that buy products online or over the phone.

No American wants to pay more taxes, but taxes on access to the Internet is bad economic growth policy, not just tax policy. Here are the top four reasons why a permanent Internet tax moratorium is necessary to stop this.

1. Keeping the Internet tax free encourages online innovation and digital entrepreneurship. Online investment and tech startups would be disincentivized to the point of obscuring the open and inventive Internet we all know and love. The United States is a global tech leader due to our private development and deregulation of online ventures. A tax moratorium also promotes innovation in cost-defective expansion of broadband access. An Internet access tax would be another cost paid by customers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that would ultimately turn companies away from creating new developments in the tech space. Taxing Internet access would serve to hamper this industry in much the same way other great American industries (auto, manufacturing) have been hamstrung by government interference.

2. Taxing the Internet would have a harsh impact on lower income families. This is the demographic that a tax-free Internet serves to help and assist in seeking employment. Raising the cost of the Internet through a usage tax would diminish the overall number of users. A recent study predicted that a 10% increase in price can be expected to illicit a 15% reduction in adoption. This negative growth is the antithesis of a free Internet.

3. An Internet access tax would raise the costs of all Internet-related business. Whether it be the price of ISPs the cost of running and maintaining a website, or transaction fees of e-commerce including online shopping, a usage tax would hurt all Internet users in much the same way that rising gasoline prices are felt throughout the economy, raising the cost of using the Internet would be seen by all online participants.

4. Access taxes would be yet another permanent part of the government shakedown. If the moratorium expires, state and local governments will be able to tax access to the Internet. If the ban is allowed to expire and governments start taxing access (which they certainly would), these funds would be built into state budgets with vested interests devoted to keeping these taxes in place. As every previous tax has proven, you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube.

Permanently extending the Internet Tax Freedom Act is a crucial step in safeguarding long-term American Internet prosperity and continued online growth. Americans for Tax Reform, Digital Liberty, and supporters of Internet freedom throughout the country endorse a permanent moratorium on Internet access taxes.​

 

Ebo-Lie…from the Bolen Report

Here’s What I Think…

by: Kenneth P Stoller, MD, FACHM

Thursday October 16th, 2014

With so much misinformation floating around about the latest viral scare, it is hard to know what is real and what isn’t.

Tim Bolen asked me to write this post after I posed a question to him… “When is a Federal agency, such as the CDC, no longer protected by the immunities a Federal agency normally has because they are engaged in activities that are not consistent with their own regulations and procedures?”

The CDC is responsible for vaccine safety and yet they own patents on, for example, the Ebola virus and could potentially profit from an Ebola vaccine – a vaccine that would not be needed if the virus doesn’t spread far and wide. Yet if the CDC helps control the spread of the virus they would be working against their own financial interest.

Not only that, they have potential martial law like authority to order citizens take interventions that they financially profit from. That sounds just like any other corporation. In fact, it sounds like regular, everyday corporations would drool to have the ability to create a problem, be positioned to profit from it, and be able to order people, or scare people enough to take what you have to sell.

Medical Bureaucracy (and FDA Regulations) Also Stymie Efforts to Halt Ebola

Ebola Test

The current dearth of treatment options for Ebola is not from a lack of options, but from a zealous protection of current medical monopolies together with an overabundance of red tape.

In a related article, we discussed government hostility to natural remedies that are both cheap, effective, and more readily available. In this article, we’ll look at the FDA roadblocks to more conventional treatments.

The FDA is paid by drug companies and is generally friendly to them. Even so, getting a new drug or device approved is a torturous and insanely expensive process. The minimum cost these days is several hundred million dollars spent over many years. The average cost is in the billions.

Technology like Nanobiosym’s “iPhone-sized device,” which can be used to detect Ebola and other diseases in less than an hour, is being delayed by needless FDA red tape. The Dallas hospital that treated three patients with Ebola had a similar device, one that could detect Ebola with high degree of confidence within a few minutes, but were prevented from using it because of FDA regulations.

There are two important national elections coming up in the next two years and the corporate-owned and controlled mainstream media (MSM) is again orchestrating another series of lucrative “too-close-to-call”, “cliff-hanger” elections designed to sell the maximum number of political commercials (“projected non-competitive” landslide elections don’t make as much money for the press).

In the heat of the campaigns, we mis-informed and oft-deceived voters must be careful lest we blindly allow our future oppressors – or their paymasters – to win at the polls. Unfortunately, history tells us that it happens all the time. But this year an informed electorate (that makes possible a true democracy) is more important than it has been in many past elections.

THE KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE DOOR

I recall a great testimony one day which came from a person who played on a pro team. I think it was basketball. But the important message here is that keythe testimony was about a person that had passed away but who was well known among sports enthusiasts. Besides being a team player, he had a very rare quality. Instead of building himself up as a mega-talented player and giving his ego wings, he  constantly praised others and was always building up other people.

This is truly an amazing quality.

On another note one of my best friends who passed away a few years ago also falls into this same category. He was a very good golfer and he had quite a few trophy’s to show for it, however, he was constantly building up other people that he had been acquainted with
during his lifetime. He was also a very good guitar player and he would share his music by going around to the rest homes in the city  where he lived. His story is interesting. I met him at Chico State University, CA. one day and from that day forth we were friends forever. More

If You Want to Live, Ignore the CDC

“Last week, Dan Henninger wrote in the Wall Street Journal about “Killer Bureaucracies”: “Ebola, the Secret Service, Veterans Affairs, ObamaCare’s rollout, the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the Federal Emergency Management Agency.”

_____________________________________________________

I almost feel sorry for Tom Frieden, director of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). So many of his pronouncements have been eviscerated by events within hours or days. He has become a punchline and should resign for the good of the country.

Unfortunately, the Ebola crisis is no joke. Two Dallas nurses (who are special people in my book) have now become infected after taking care of an Ebola-infected patient who illegally flew to the U.S. when he knew he had been heavily exposed to the deadly virus.

To maintain, as does Dr. Frieden, that stopping travel to the U.S. from the few countries where Ebola is running rampant would somehow harm us is illogical to the point of absurdity. And it is now clear to every other sentient being that Ebola is far more contagious, and deadly, than AIDS, to which Dr. Frieden compared Ebola. The latest nugget is that Amber Vinson, the second Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola, called the CDC numerous times before boarding her flight from Cleveland back to Dallas and was told it was OK for her to fly because her fever did not quite reach the protocolized threshold!

CHILD HEALTH SAFETY

“The virus turned out not to be the killer it was hyped to be but its release would have generated billions of dollars in vaccine sales and the vaccine would have been fast-tracked past any safety testing – instant wealth for Baxter Pharmaceutical. The crankosphere would claim that is truly weapons-grade conspiracy mongering stupidity. But wait … it happened. It took place. And what prevented the release? In the whole of Europe just one Czech lab took the trouble to test it on animals – they died.”

Or maybe people remember the dud fake SARS pandemic scare [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome] or maybe even the HIV/AIDS scare? You know – HIV/AIDS with the 1980s TV ads telling everyone they were all going to die from having sex without a condom and billions of tax dollars diverted to a lot of pockets of “scientists” and drug companies promoting highly toxic drugs like AZT which killed people? Great news for condom manufacturers too. More

From Ghana: Ebola is not real and the only people who have gotten sick are those who have received treatments and injections from the Red Cross

People in the Western World need to know what’s happening here in West Africa. THEY ARE LYING!!! “Ebola” as a virus does NOT Exist and is NOT “Spread”. The Red Cross has brought a disease to 4 specific countries for 4 specific reasons and it is only contracted by those who receive treatments and injections from the Red Cross. That is why Liberians and Nigerians have begun kicking the Red Cross out of their countries and reporting in the news the truth. Now bear with me:

REASONS:

Most people jump to “depopulation” which is no doubt always on the mind of the West when it comes to Africa. But I assure you Africa can NEVER be depopulated by killing 160 people a day when thousands are born per day. So the real reasons are much more tangible.

Reason 1: This vaccine implemented sickness being “called” Ebola was introduced into West Africa for the end goal of getting troops on the ground in Nigeria, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. If you remember America was just trying to get into Nigeria for “Boko Haram”,  but that fell apart when Nigerians started telling the truth. There ARE NO GIRLS MISSING. Global support fell through the floor, and a new reason was needed to get troops into Nigeria and steal the new oil reserves they have discovered.

Reason 2: Sierra Leone is the World’s Largest Supplier of Diamonds. For the past 4 months they have been on strike, refusing to provide diamonds due to horrible working conditions and slave pay. The West will not pay a fair wage for the resources because the idea is to keep these people surviving on rice bags and foreign aid so that they remain a source of cheap slave labor forever. A reason was also needed to get troops on the ground in Sierra Leone to force an end to the diamond miners strikes. This is not the first time this has been done. When miners refuse to work troops are sent in and even if they have to kill and replace them all, the only desire is to get diamonds back flowing out of the country.

Of course to launch multiple campaigns to invade these countries separately would be way too fishy. But something like “Ebola” allows access to an entire area simultaneously… More

The fact of Ebola now uncontained internationally requires action. What action?

new-logo25Dick Eastman M.S., M.A.

 

__________________________________________________________

Action for what purpose? A debate.

Does Ebola deserve the attention it’s been getting lately? Is it as dangerous as some so-called “alarmists” (e.g., Mike Adams, Donald Trump, etc.) are suggesting? Or is it the easily manageable threat others (like the CDC) are proclaiming? Actually, the truth may lie somewhere in the middle.

Ebola as a contagious disease deserves appropriate action. The disease exists and it is on the loose. But there something else in play here. The disease is obviously not being handled intelligently and those whom are generally thought to be the responsible authorities, government, American medicine and the Center for Disease Control are clearly not taking measures to address this un-contained fatal virus.

This president who signed in a medical reform bill that seems to have been written for the profit of the financial sector and the big pharmaceutical companies has not taken the steps that must be taken now. A national quarantine of everyone — with absolute minimization of contact, including schools and, simultaneously, the closing airports and border crossings — except for minimum personal contact imports, say from container ships or trucks carrying products in which the truck drivers are limited in whom they may contact. The system will not be perfect and there is no time to perfect it – it simply must be done now — while containment is still possible. With an incubation period of 20 days and people exposed wandering freely about right now, the option of containment as I have described will not be open for long.

Yes, infectious disease experts may know the most about the viruses that cause Ebola virus disease (EVD) and the other hemorrhagic fever diseases; scientific facts are always preferable to unfounded theories and worst-case prognostication; and some people do attempt to profit/benefit from the hysteria that comes from potential threats.

US CDC Scientists Knew All Children At Risk of Autism from MMR Vaccine and Hid the Data – Again

This is some really stunning evidence of the fraud in vaccines. We do not vaccinate. We will not vaccinate. How many children and even adults will be sacrificed for big pharma profits while the CDC lies????

Historically, for nearly 400 years the American family which began with native Americans and European roots became an integral foundational part of the country that we now know.  Though many trials were encountered along the way the traditional family weathered the storms of life and not only built a country that became like no other, the people held on to cultural and moral values that were enshrined in one Judeo-Christian nation, under God, which also included holy matrimony between a man and a woman. But where are we today?

Here is a not so golden snapshot.

Since 2005, the majority of U.S. households have not been headed by married couples. The number of non-married-couple households continues to grow (ACS 2005-2007). There are more than 51 million households headed by unmarried Americans, representing roughly 44% of all households and the majority of households in 23 states, plus the District of Columbia (CPS, 2007).

A number of intriguing (and horrific) questions and theorized or partial answers have occurred to me over the past several weeks, which I will try to explore here.

For starters, what really provokes (or possesses) human beings to commit or endorse heinous acts of revolting violence and cruelty in the course of their purposeful lives?

What. For instance, would motivate the drivers of modern Zionism to endorse or commit genocide by strong military force endlessly for months against an already psychologically and physically abused, essentially unarmed population in Gaza over a desperately deployed arsenal of rockets akin to fireworks rockets?

What provokes a small percentage of extremist Islamic radicals to flaunt to the world and exult in apparent beheadings and mass-murders perpetrated hourly against any who dare to think differently?

And what provokes members of the world’s unified power-cult psychopathic cabal to blow to dust thousands of people, on 9/11/01, impossibly blaming fanciful foreign boogeymen, and then obliterate hundreds of thousands senselessly together with their targeted countries? More

Good Wolves and Other Fables: Part 2

OPINION: Part 2

__________________________________________________________

The Southwest is the area where Canadian and Mexican wolves mostly likely will meet and crossbreed. According to USFWS documents, the Mexican wolf’s inbreeding contributes to small litter sizes and low pup-survival rates. Cross-breeding with the non-native Canadian wolves would “solve” the Mexican wolf’s gene pool problem. Call it a “nonessential experimental Mexican wolf subspecies.” Or call it what it is—a bigger crossbred “Mexican” gray wolf.

Matt Cronin, a University of Alaska, Fairbanks and research professor of animal genetics, addressed USFWS officials at their Public Hearing Concerning Mexican Wolves in Arizona on December 3, 2013. He told the panel:

“. . . Mexican wolves went through a very large bottleneck. They don’t represent the original population. They came from a small Canis population. Assessing the subspecies is somewhat futile in that respect.

“. . . subspecies, in general, are basically a subjective category. They are not a hard scientifically blank category.

“. . . this phenomenon of naming species and subspecies has been termed by the broad scientific community as inflation, splitting things into groups with the intent of granting conservation, again. The entire scientific community outside of the wildlife is recognizing this. And it’s very important that we realize that subspecies as a scientific category is subjective. It’s not definitive. The scientific community agrees on it.

“ . . . I suggest you use the entire body of science and the recent discrediting of subspecies that have been listed and reconsider the science. . .”

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is delisting and relinquishing management of gray wolves back to state wildlife officials while simultaneously proposing “new rules”1 to “save” the Mexican gray wolf. The proposals include:

► Keeping the Mexican gray wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) on the endangered list as a subspecies. A conundrum. The Mexican wolf is a gray wolf that breeds with other gray wolves and is not a subspecies. A grizzly and a black bear are subspecies. A horse and donkey are subspecies that produce sterile offspring.

►Issuing permits to private landowners to kill wolves killing livestock on their property based on the number of Mexican gray wolves that exist in the wild, not immediate or continuing wolf depredations.

►Handling Mexican wolves killing livestock on private lands are not included in the USFWS’s new ‘problem’ wolf proposals. Mexican wolves killing livestock on private land are problem wolves. More
