How Aspartame Became Legal – The Timeline

2 Comments

As the reports of Aspartame related diseases, malignancies and diabetes occurrence and/ or exacerbation mount, the patent by G.D. Searle is about to run out.  When it does, aspartame will be added to thousands of new products.  As it is, over 5,000 products now contain aspartame and many of them are not labeled as such. 

 

The following article from Rense, 2002, lays out an exacting timeline of how this poisonous substance was approved for human consumption in spite of all the evidence that it was lethal.

“Excellent documentary showing how dangerous artificial sweetener Aspartame is. From its history, to its effects this video is enough to shock anyone into really looking at there food labels next time they shop. Aspartame is a toxic food that came into the world as an investment By Donald Rumsfeld, while ignoring the deadly effects the tests showed. Take a good look at this video, it could save lives.”

 

 

 

 

What Barack Obama Will Not Do as President

Leave a comment

                                       by Alan Adaschik

 

America just survived the nightmare of living under the worst possible president anyone could imagine; George W. Bush.  No one can say anything good about his accomplishments while in office and this includes Republicans who are loyal to him.  This is because everything George Bush did was to the detriment of the people of this Nation and to the rest of the world.  As a President, he was a total failure and he deliberately worked to destroy everything that was right about our Nation and its government.  This includes:

 

·     Turning the office of the President into a dictatorship

·     Tightening the New World Orders grip upon our Nation

·     Increasing government secrecy

·     Opening the revolving door between corporations and government agencies

·     Reducing the effectiveness of and politicizing all government agencies

·     Increased the national debt bringing the Nation to the brink of bankruptcy

·     Broke down the wall between the separation between church and state

·     Wrongfully rewrote legislation through the use of signing statements

·     Wrongfully rewrote legislation through the use of executive orders

·     Worked to eliminate checks and balances in government

·     Eliminated citizen rights including inalienable ones

·     Introduced torture as a legitimate tool of government

·     Broke treaties and ignored international law

·     Lied to the American people about everything

·     Established an illegal prison system outside our borders

·     Wrongfully invaded a weak foreign nation on a lie

·     Failed to prevent 9/11 and is remiss in fighting the war on terror

·     Mishandled the Katrina disaster

·     Etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum

No, George Bush did nothing good for America and nothing good for the world.  While in office, his actions were undertaken solely for the benefit of our New World Order masters and the corporate executives who hold him firmly in their pockets.  In the final analysis, the ultimate irony of this is that what he wrought is not even beneficial to these Fascists because the destruction of our environment and the collapse of our economic system benefits no one including the demented criminals of the New World Order.  Indeed, America is ready for change but it goes far beyond just being ready because George Bush has driven a dagger into the very heart of what America is supposed to be and if his actions are not reversed, the American experiment in Republican Democracy is definitely over.

Enter Barack Obama into the picture!  What a breath of fresh air this man brings to the Presidency.  He is intelligent, articulate, handsome, and dedicated to his beautiful family.  Beyond this, he honestly wants to be a President for all Americans including those who do not have six figure incomes.  Furthermore, he is black and the vast majority of us living today never thought we would see the day when a black man would be elected as our President.  Americans should be proud that we are mature enough to look past the color of a man’s skin and judge a person based upon the character and abilities he has to offer in the service of his country.  Truly, Barack Obama has already changed America by the very act of being elected and to further succeed all he has to do reverse and not do what George Bush did.  The real issue is how committed he really is to doing this?

Barack Obama is our President because he promised to bring about “change” and the areas he intends to concentrate his efforts on are the economy, Iraq, and health care.  Anyone who owns a television knows this is the case and certainly a majority of us are in favor of changes in these areas.  This is all well and good as far as it goes, but the reality of our situation is such that it doesn’t go very far and the truth of the matter is that we really know very little about what Barack Obama will actually do when he takes office.  This is the problem with electing a populist President.  He makes you feel good and proud to be an American and there is certainly something to be said for this, but substance and perceptions are two different things and it is substance that makes or breaks a presidency.

Like most Americans, I was overjoyed when Barack Obama was elected President, but I had reservations because he is a member of one of our two dominating political parties.  To be sure, our electoral process boils down to the party seeking power trying to convince people that they will solve the problems created by the party still in power.  But the real truth, which most Americans do not understand, is that we are where we are today because both political parties collaborated and cooperated to get us here.  Eight years is not time enough to entirely change where our Nation is heading, so it stands to reason that our hijacked ship of state is on a course determined by its equally culpable co-captains; the Republicans and Democrats in keeping with the wishes and mandates of our New World Order masters.  Therefore, while Barack Obama focused his entire campaign upon change, a prudent citizen is more than justified in wondering just how committed to change Barack Obama really is.  While no one can make this determination with definitive certainty, enough information is available to make a reasonable determination as to what he will and will not do.

National Security Presidential Directive and Homeland Security Presidential Directive

  White House News

      NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD — 59
      HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD — 24

SUBJECT: Biometrics for Identification and Screening to Enhance National Security

Purpose

This directive establishes a framework to ensure that Federal executive departments and agencies (agencies) use mutually compatible methods and procedures in the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information of individuals in a lawful and appropriate manner, while respecting their information privacy and other legal rights under United States law.

Scope

(1)  The executive branch has developed an integrated screening capability to protect the Nation against “known and suspected terrorists” (KSTs).  The executive branch shall build upon this success, in accordance with this directive, by enhancing its capability to collect, store, use, analyze, and share biometrics to identify and screen KSTs and other persons who may pose a threat to national security.

(2)  Existing law determines under what circumstances an individual’s biometric and biographic information can be collected.  This directive requires agencies to use, in a more coordinated and efficient manner, all biometric information associated with persons who may pose a threat to national security, consistent with applicable law, including those laws relating to privacy and confidentiality of personal data.

(3)  This directive provides a Federal framework for applying existing and emerging biometric technologies to the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of data in identification and screening processes employed by agencies to enhance national security, consistent with applicable law, including information privacy and other legal rights under United States law.

(4)  The executive branch recognizes the need for a layered approach to identification and screening of individuals, as no single mechanism is sufficient.  For example, while existing name-based screening procedures are beneficial, application of biometric technologies, where appropriate, improve the executive branch’s ability to identify and screen for persons who may pose a national security threat. To be most effective, national security identification and screening systems will require timely access to the most accurate and most complete biometric, biographic, and related data that are, or can be, made available throughout the executive branch.

(5)  This directive does not impose requirements on State, local, or tribal authorities or on the private sector.  It does not provide new authority to agencies for collection, retention, or dissemination of information or for identification and screening activities.

Definitions

(6)  In this directive:

(a)  “Biometrics” refers to the measurable biological (anatomical and physiological) and behavioral characteristics that can be used for automated recognition; examples include fingerprint, face, and iris recognition; and

(b)  “Interoperability” refers to the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged.

Background

(7)  The ability to positively identify those individuals who may do harm to Americans and the Nation is crucial to protecting the Nation.  Since September 11, 2001, agencies have made considerable progress in securing the Nation through the integration, maintenance, and sharing of information used to identify persons who may pose a threat to national security.

(8)  Many agencies already collect biographic and biometric information in their identification and screening processes. With improvements in biometric technologies, and in light of its demonstrated value as a tool to protect national security, it is important to ensure agencies use compatible
methods and procedures in the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric information.

(9)  Building upon existing investments in fingerprint recognition and other biometric modalities, agencies are currently strengthening their biometric collection, storage, and matching capabilities as technologies advance and offer new opportunities to meet evolving threats to further enhance national security.

(10) This directive is designed to (a) help ensure a common recognition of the value of using biometrics in identification and screening programs and (b) help achieve objectives described in the following:  Executive Order 12881 (Establishment of the National Science and Technology Council); Homeland Security Presidential Directive‑6 (HSPD‑6) (Integration and Use of Screening Information to Protect Against Terrorism); Executive Order 13354 (National Counterterrorism Center); Homeland Security Presidential Directive‑11 (HSPD‑11) (Comprehensive Terrorist Related Screening Procedures); Executive Order 13388 (Further Strengthening the Sharing of Terrorism Information to Protect Americans); National Security Presidential Directive‑46/Homeland Security Presidential Directive‑15 (NSPD-46/HSPD-15) (U.S. Policy and Strategy in the War on Terror); 2005 Information Sharing Guidelines; 2006 National Strategy for Combating Terrorism; 2006 National Strategy to Combat Terrorist Travel; 2007 National Strategy for Homeland Security; 2007 National Strategy for Information Sharing; and 2008 United States Intelligence Community Information Sharing Strategy.

Policy

(11) Through integrated processes and interoperable systems, agencies shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, make available to other agencies all biometric and associated biographic and contextual information associated with persons for whom there is an articulable and reasonable basis for suspicion that they pose a threat to national security.

(12) All agencies shall execute this directive in a lawful and appropriate manner, respecting the information privacy and other legal rights of individuals under United States law, maintaining data integrity and security, and protecting intelligence sources, methods, activities, and sensitive law enforcement information.

Policy Coordination

(13) The Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, in coordination with the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, shall be responsible for interagency policy coordination on all aspects of this directive.

Roles and Responsibilities

(14) Agencies shall undertake the roles and responsibilities herein to the fullest extent permitted by law, consistent with the policy of this directive, including appropriate safeguards for information privacy and other legal rights, and in consultation with State, local, and tribal authorities, where appropriate.

(15) The Attorney General shall:

(a)  Provide legal policy guidance, in coordination with the Secretaries of State, Defense, and Homeland Security and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), regarding the lawful collection, use, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information to enhance national security; and

(b)  In coordination with the DNI, ensure that policies and procedures for the consolidated terrorist watchlist maximize the use of all biometric identifiers.

(16) Each of the Secretaries of State, Defense, and Homeland Security, the Attorney General, the DNI, and the heads of other appropriate agencies, shall:

(a)  Develop and implement mutually compatible guidelines for each respective agency for the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information, to the fullest extent practicable, lawful, and necessary to protect national security;

(b)  Maintain and enhance interoperability among agency biometric and associated biographic systems, by utilizing common information technology and data standards, protocols, and interfaces;

(c)  Ensure compliance with laws, policies, and procedures respecting information privacy, other legal rights, and information security;

(d)  Establish objectives, priorities, and guidance to ensure timely and effective tasking, collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information among authorized agencies;

(e)  Program for and budget sufficient resources to support the development, operation, maintenance, and upgrade of biometric capabilities consistent with this directive and with such instructions as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget may provide; and

(f)  Ensure that biometric and associated biographic and contextual information on KSTs is provided to the National Counterterrorism Center and, as appropriate, to the Terrorist Screening Center.

(17) The Secretary of State, in coordination with the Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security, the Attorney General, and the DNI, shall coordinate the sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information with foreign partners in accordance with applicable law, including international obligations undertaken by the United States.

(18) The Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, through the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), shall coordinate executive branch biometric science and technology policy, including biometric standards and necessary research, development, and conformance testing programs.  Recommended executive branch biometric standards
are contained in the Registry of United States Government

Recommended Biometric Standards and shall be updated via the NSTC Subcommittee on Biometrics and Identity Management.

Weather Warfare: Beware the US military’s experiments with climatic warfare

Leave a comment

 

Climatic warfare’ has been excluded from the agenda on climate change.

 

by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

 

Global Research, December 7, 2007

The Ecologist, December 2007

 

“HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction, capable of destabilizing agricultural and ecological systems globally.”

‘Climatic warfare’ potentially threatens the future of humanity, but has casually been excluded from the reports for which the IPCC received the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.”

Pdf version of article on Weather Warfare by Michel Chossudovsky, The Ecologist, December 2007 (pdf)

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

The Truth behind the Citigroup Bank “Nationalization”

Colossal Financial Collapse

The Truth behind the Citigroup Bank “Nationalization”

By F. William Engdahl  (excerpted from the article)

On Friday November 21, the world came within a hair’s breadth of the most colossal financial collapse in history according to bankers on the inside of events with whom we have contact. The trigger was the bank which only two years ago was America’s largest, Citigroup. The size of the US Government de facto nationalization of the $2 trillion banking institution is an indication of shocks yet to come in other major US and perhaps European banks thought to be ‘too big to fail.’

November 25, 2008 “Global Research” — The clumsy way in which US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, himself not a banker but a Wall Street ‘investment banker’, whose experience has been in the quite different world of buying and selling stocks or bonds or underwriting and selling same, has handled the unfolding crisis has been worse than incompetent. It has made a grave situation into a globally alarming one.

‘Spitting into the wind’

A case in point is the secretive manner in which Paulson has used the $700 billion in taxpayer funds voted him by a labile Congress in September. Early on, Paulson put $125 billion in the nine largest banks, including $10 billion for his old firm, Goldman Sachs. However, if we compare the value of the equity share that $125 billion bought with the market price of those banks’ stock, US taxpayers have paid $125 billion for bank stock that a private investor could have bought for $62.5 billion, according to a detailed analysis from Ron W. Bloom, economist with the US United Steelworkers union, whose members as well as pension fund face devastating losses were GM to fail.

That means half of the public’s money was a gift to Paulson’s Wall Street cronies. Now, only weeks later, the Treasury is forced to intervene to de facto nationalize Citigroup. It won’t be the last.

Paulson demanded, and got from a labile US Congress, Democrat as well as Republican, sole discretion over how and where he can invest the $700 billion, to date with no effective oversight. It amounts to the Treasury Secretary in effect ‘spitting into the wind’ in terms of resolving the fundamental crisis.(end excerpt)

All terrorism all the time……BRASSCHECK TV/video

Leave a comment

It’s Thanksgiving which means a lot in America and nothing here in Milan, Italy where I’m spending a few days.

 

But where ever you are, if you turn on CNN or the BBC (the only two English channels you can reliably get in Europe), it’s been “all terrorism, all the time” on TV since last night. 

 

Now I don’t dispute that the attacks in India are news or that the deaths and injuries are tragic, but does this story merit all day and night coverage.

 

And you can hear the newscasters doing everything they can to build up the story, its significance, and its dire portents for the future of humanity.

 

I notice that the European news stations note what happened and then get on to news from the rest of the world.

 

Not so for the terrorism obsessed US and UK. They’re going to make this

into the biggest event since landing a man on the moon if its the last thing they do.

 

What gives?

 

Yesterday, the day began with news that the US just threw another trillion dollar log on the fire to try to stop the slow motion train wreck that threatens to collapse the world financial system.

 

Less than 24 hours later, that’s history.

 

Now it’s “all terrorism, all the time” this time at a luxury hotel in Mumbai, India.
