Superbugs in Factory-farmed Meats

Leave a comment

From: Whole Food USA: link

An AP article headlined Pressure Rises to Stop Antibiotics in Agriculture made the front page today that will help to educate consumers about the type of factory-farm meat they are eating. With the heavy use of antibiotics, the chickens, pigs and cows develop dangerous organisms in and on their infection-suppressed carcasses and end up on the dinner plate. This has long known been a reason for creation of superbugs and antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria , but it is good to see this information is going more mainstream; and, all the more reason to eat naturally raised beef, chickens, pork and other meats.

The article does not cover the hazards of genetically-engineered feed or cloned animals, but ironically the story is from show-me-state town of Frankenstein, Missouri. Here are some excerpts:

Researchers say the overuse of antibiotics in humans and animals has led to a plague of drug-resistant infections that killed more than 65,000 people in the U.S. last year — more than prostate and breast cancer combined. And in a nation that used about 35 million pounds of antibiotics last year, 70 percent of the drugs went to pigs, chickens and cows. Worldwide, it’s 50 percent. Read more

There really was a new Presidential Executive Order issued December 30, 2009 in relation to Terrorism in the United States. No – the “Alphabet Connection” was not “officially” released (Wink. Wink), but it seems that the “We” in my reporting from yesterday has decreed through an Official real and truly true Executive Order as reported in the NY Times (http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2009/12/30/us/politics/AP-US-Anthrax-Attack.html):

“If the nation ever faces a large-scale attack by a biological weapon like anthrax, the U.S. Postal Service will be in charge of delivering whatever drugs and other medical aid Americans would need to survive.”

Stop that! Now wipe off the keyboard and monitor. Good. Listen to We (oops) me.

Who better to be “in charge of dispensing ”medical countermeasures” to biological weapons because of its ”capacity for rapid residential delivery.””

Hey – lets deputize them as “Visiting Nurses” under the new “Obama Health Care Plan” and provide syringes too! That’ll get the economy rolling!

Personally I would have chosen FedEx or UPS.  My reasoning is that neither of their managements could afford to “stuff mail into closets and unused rooms at mail facilities in Waterbury and Wallingford because they don’t know how to keep up with such a high volume of mail…” That might be because their shareholders actually expect them to be profitable. Unlike the USPS which somehow managed to operate in the red to the tune of $68.09 million dollars in 2009 while still raising rates.

Or how about Wal-Mart? That corporation is the largest non-union civilian employer in the United States with 1.3 million employees (USPS has a paltry 656,000 unionized workers). Wait a minute – I see what that sneaky “We” guy is doing. You silly bugger – it’s a “bait and switch” tactic to pay back the Union Bosses that “We” ripped off behind closed doors during the Health Care debacle after they elected “We”.

Another little goodie is this one:

“Under the new order, federal agencies must develop a response plan that includes possible law enforcement escorts for Postal Service workers and gives anthrax ”primary threat consideration.””

One might question whether the “unionized” law enforcement escorts are there to “escort” or enforce, but that is going way too far. And why “anthrax”? Could it have anything to do with this story out of New Hampshire in which a third case of “natural” anthrax was identified  from African drums – wait – isn’t Nigeria in Africa?

Maybe I was wrong. Maybe yesterdays Executive Order could merge with todays Executive Order and save the “free-ish” World.

Excuse me. Off to call “We” in Hawaii.

Tri-Partisan Blue Ribbon Panel Investigation Reveals “Alphabet Connection”

1 Comment

After much discussion and an in-depth tri-partisan Blue Ribbon Panel Investigation lasting 72 hours, the White House today released it’s findings on the 8 Terrorist attacks in the last 6 months of the year:

1.The last Administration is responsible for not doing enough or doing too much depending on what was done.
2.Calling the Terrorists, well Terrorists, has hurt their itty bitty little feelings and made them “madder than a wet hen”.
3.All of the individuals involved have used, gasp, letters in their names. Some have even had the audacity to use multiple vowels!
4.Many have used garments to conceal and/or disguise the tools being used to perpetuate said “Domestic Badness”.

In order to discourage the “Really Bad Badness”, the following Executive Order has been put forth:

“By virtue of the authority vested in me as President by myself, the Chicago Political Machine and the Hope and Change Committee, including whichever statute and non-verified International Treaty that We call upon as an Independent Ruling Body, it is hereby ordered that:

1.All Administration Officials whom have served from  August 4th, 1961 forward and had the audacity to pass laws allowing for anything other than what I have deemed acceptable (except for the Officials currently serving in the House or Senate which support my Agenda), be removed from office.

2.No longer will we refer to the “T” word. Now we shall use “Bad Guys” (BG) in referring to the individuals who do “Bad Stuff” (BS).

3.All Global Citizens who use letters in their name, especially if multiple vowels are used, shall be placed upon the “Super-Dee-Duper Watch List” (SDDWL). (With the following exceptions of whom will be placed on the “Not Super-Dee-Super Watch List” (NSDDWL): CIA, FBI, POTUS, ACLU, ACORN, SIEU, etc.)

4.No individual, no matter what their status, who has been placed upon the SDDWL will be allowed to wear garments that are concealing in any manner.

The above decrees are not intended to abridge in any respect the privileges, exemptions or immunities which such Global Citizens may have acquired or may acquire by international agreement or by Congressional action. Those shall be “null and void” due to the power invested in me and because We said so.

MEXICO CITY – Mexican Drug Cartel (MDC’s) assailants Tuesday gunned down the mother, aunt and siblings of a marine killed in a raid that killed who many believe was Mexico’s most powerful cartel leader Arturo Beltran Leyva. Police say that action has sent a chilling message to all Mexico’s troops, Federal Police and all who battle the drug war: It says to them you go after us, we wipe out your, Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers and your Children and all your family. The families of soldiers and police are now going to suffer for the government’s campaign against MDC’s and other drug traffickers it is feared. More

The Enumerated Powers Act

The Enumerated Powers Act (EPA) requires that every bill must specify its source of Constitutional authority. This would prove very embarrassing to Congress, because there is no Constitutional authority for most of what they pass.

Good news!

Two more House members have co-sponored EPA over the past month, bringing the toal to 56. Sadly, the Senate is still stuck at 22 co-sponsors. You can find . . .

RFID Bling For Bovines – Just In Time For The New Year

Just when you thought you’d heard it all, something comes along that makes you say “Hm. I just wonder”.

While surfing around the UHF-RFID livestock world, I came across a new and snazzy tag. Trust me folks – you want to pass on this one.

While a cutie-wootie-slick-forward-looking tag can be an extra bonus in selling (riigghhtt) – this one has the stink of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) plastered all over it. Why would one think that? Here we go (links are provided at conclusion for ease of  review):

USDA approves eTattoo from Eriginate as First Official UHF Identification Device (1) That headline should cause one to wonder and the opening comment begs for investigation:

“Eriginate Corporation announced today the approval of its eTattoo tag by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The approval marks the first ultra-high radio frequency identification tag (UHF RFID) and the first non-low frequency tag (LF) to be approved for use with the “840” Animal Identification Number (AIN)”

Just whom is on the board of this  “Eriginate”? (2)

Why surprise surprise the Director is one Mr. Doran Junek. As his bio (3) clearly states, he has all the bells and whistles required to position this firm for the first “approved” eTattoo:

Lobbying responsibilities – check
Member of the Bovine Species Working Group for NAIS – check
Affiliation (past or present?) with Cargill – Check
“Key industry Contacts” – Check

…but that’s just my opinion.

Of course as “Advisors” (4) go, the most interesting could be Gerardo Flores of famed NASA affiliation. Nah. While his specialty could ensure that once we go “solar system wide” the critters could be properly traced, that’s a few years in the future, so lets see….here’s an interesting character. More

 Mexico’s unbelievable record breaking level of violent war deaths are piling up as casualties of Mexico’s on going civil war continues. These killings in Mexico are reveled by no country even other countries with active war zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

Thousands of people died in what the Mexican Government calls drug-related violence this year as Mexican Drug Cartels (MDC’s) and trained enforcer gangs fought each other, the Mexican Army and Mexico’s security forces.   Mexican border protesters earlier this year told this reporter that the MDC’s claim they are dedicated to over throwing the current Calderon government and the government is hiding the true Mexican army death totals.

The first person to stand up to any great evil is always the most courageous. To be the first one to call out any great injustice is to invite ridicule, scorn, even persecution. It is difficult to imagine today just how brave were the first slave owners to call for the abolition of slavery, the first men and women to advocate women’s suffrage, the first activists to call for the end of Apartheid. In the end, their cause is recognized as just and these brave souls are lauded, often posthumously, as heroes. But in the beginning, no one wants to admit that they are a party, even unwittingly, to a great evil. The wildest injustices can be legitimized simply because they are popular…

The primary research institute responsible for the studies and climate models used in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports on global warming being man-made, had it’s files leaked to the public. Emails, documents, computer code for the software that created the climate models . . . the whole ball of wax was dumped onto the public stage.

From the moment I stood in the lobby of the Pheasant Run Hotel and Conference Center in St. Charles Illinois on the morning of November 11, 2009, I knew that this would be an important gathering of American citizens. By the end of the day, more than one hundred and twenty delegates from 48 states had arrived and we began the deliberations of Continental Congress 2009 that would last 11 days. All of the delegates had high hopes that something good would come from this effort; something that would help the America people find their way at this crucial time in our history.

No one could have predicted the things that took place over those eleven days and no one who attended would ever be the same. American citizens from 48 of these united States, from all walks of life, had come together in a people’s congress to devise a plan to return America to Constitutional government. Working long into the night, every night, we huddled together in small and large groups, talking about the Constitution, discussing the Constitution, trying to find the way back to constitutional government for this great country.

From this historic gathering, a document entitled the ‘Articles of Freedom,’ was prepared for the Free People of America, written by the delegates themselves who made up a cross section of the American people. This document doesn’t pretend to have all the answers, nor do we expect all Americans to agree to each and every part. We do hope, however, that the Articles of Freedom, will serve as a wake-up call for our elected officials and the free people of America. The document represents a strategic plan that can be used by the people to turn America around and restore our Republic. More

Hello everyone,
 
This was not what I intended to do this Christmas. This is not making my family, my wife, three young children, happy one tiny bit.
But the evil in Wisconsin is so great, the intensity of pressure on our farm so massive, I am left with no other option.
Cheryl Daniels and Jackie Owens of Rod Nuelstein’s DATCP, Department of Ag Trade & Consumer Protection, Food Safety division, has attempted to torment us over the past two months, trying to make me shut up about the illegality, the scandal, the misuse of power up there. Their plan is to intimidate, and they have succeeded in removing, unjustly, our last ability to make a living: our meat licenses. Which of course I am welcome to appeal: To Rod Nuelstein. How do you think that’s going to go? When do you think he’ll make time for that? That is but one indication of how out of wack – out of control — non-democratic – that agency is. The meat licenses have nothing to do with their Raw Milk case. There is but one purpose: shut Scott Trautman up. Their arrogance is incredible.
 
Our media has a limited attention span, which Rod understands, and has used: to sound great in the word, but no one follows up to see just what he does.
Perhaps a farmer chaining himself to the governor’s MANSION and refusing all food and water will be enough of a “media event” to bring the proper light to this situation.
 
I am not asking anyone to join me at this time, I do not desire to ruin the holidays of good people everywhere — but I will be ‘on the wall’ for as long as it takes.

Marijuana – Reefer Madness or Cure-all?

Farm Wars

December 20, 2009

Controversy surrounding the use of marijuana, whether it is for recreational or medical purposes, is heating up.

The first state to legalize marijuana for medical purposes, California leads the country in decriminalizing the sale and use of cannabis. Other states are considering the issue… Now, a new initiative that will allow local governments to oversee and regulate cultivation, distribution, and sales – and to determine how and how much cannabis can be bought and sold within area limits – will be on the November 2010 ballot. National advocates say that regardless of the vote – signature gathering went fast and easy, according to reports – a major corner has been turned in national acceptance of marijuana use. (CSMonitor)

The real question is, why should a harmless plant that anyone can grow at home elicit such controversy. Why does the government care? Why criminalize it in the first place, and then keep it under control by regulating it after determining that people are going to use it anyway? The answer might lie here: READ MORE…

Two years ago, Californians stood up and fought back against government collusion with coporate interests and fought back against a bill meant to end fresh/raw milk sales. 
On October 8, 2007 AB 1735 was signed into law in California. This law did nothing to protect anyone, as it purported, but did everything to limit the rights of consumers in California. Had it been allowed to stand, raw milk would have dried up as of January 1, 2008. An emergency bill was written as a response and on January 16, 2008, Assemblymembers Nicole Parra (D), Mike Villines (R), and Tom Berryhill (R) demanded AB 1735 be changed by enacting AB 1604. Raw milk supporters turned out in droves and in a few short hours, democracy prevailed and raw milk drinkers and producers were protected. The following video shows history in the making.” More

Springfield, Missouri
By: Kathy Vimont

My family produces raw milk in southwest Missouri. I am responding to Douglas Bryan’s letter of Dec. 9 regarding the safety of raw milk.

Dr. Bryan quoted an explanation from Cornell about why pasteurization has been made mandatory for retail sales, but he doesn’t know the rest of the story. About 100 years ago, large amounts of milk were needed to feed people in the large cities. They also needed an answer about what to do with the distillery grain left over from making alcohol there. Answer: feed it to cows and use the resulting milk to feed the people. They should not have been drinking that milk.

It was produced in filthy conditions by very unhealthy animals and caused many deaths. Their only answer was to pasteurize the milk, and that’s how pasteurization on a large scale became entrenched. But, here’s the really interesting part: at that same time, Dr. J.R. Crewe of the Mayo Clinic was bringing in clean raw milk from the countryside and curing patients of cancer and other dread diseases with a strict raw milk diet. For more on this story and a critical analysis of milk safety studies, I refer you to “The Untold Story of Milk” by Dr. Ron Schmid.  Go to: http://www.realmilk.com/documents/ResponsetoMarlerListofStudies.pdf

for a balancing article on the safety of raw milk.

Considering modern advancements, the belief that we must pasteurize or die is outdated. Besides, we’re not talking about producing raw milk for the entire population; we’re talking about small family farms thriving and supporting our local economies. Buying milk from neighbors is a long-standing tradition in Missouri, one with which the legislature refused to interfere. READ MORE

The Truth behind the drive to outlaw raw/fresh milk sales or:

How the USDA and the federal government are actively working to end family and independent dairy farming for corporate interests.

 The BUSINESS OF CULLEN AGRITECH:

 Business Overview– Pg. 6

Cullen Agritech is a newly formed company formed in June 2009 committed to the development and commercialization of advanced agricultural technologies. Cullen Agritech’s principal focus will be to improve agricultural yields through pasture and animal sciences. Cullen Agritech’s primary operations will be conducted through Natural Dairy Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Cullen Agritech, through which it will attempt to engage in a long term scalable dairy farming operation utilizing the Cullen Agritech farming system in the Southeastern United States. Cullen Agritech will also offer advisory services associated with the development and implementation of efficient farming techniques. This will promote a methodology that incorporates components of New Zealand’s pasture-based farming system, scientifically adapted for use in local markets.” (end clip)

The new technology being promoted by Cullen- New Zealand is simply what farmers have done for thousands of years; the moving of their livestock routinely to fresh pastures making sure ample water was made available to them and incidentally; reducing the number and amount of toxic chemicals, vaccines, hormones and additives required to be used in private operations.  While there certainly is a scientific soundness to this practice, it most assuredly is nothing new. So where would the “scientific” application of what is commonly understood to be the best management practices of dairy herding, be applied?  And how?  And how could you rationalize the re-designation of traditional dairy farming methods as something new and innovative and apply for and receive a patent on that method?

As the first year of the Obama Administration comes to a close, many questions remain about the mysteries of the so-called “dark side” of the “war on terror”.  No investigation by this administration of the Bush/Cheney administration exists, even though during his campaign the investigation was promised by Obama. Therefore some of the most serious questions to face this nation remain unsolved. Some wonder if some sort of a deal was struck by Bush and Obama in the Oval Office of the White House during the transition. Al Qaeda’s 9/11 terror attacks, after all, were on the Bush/Cheney watch the day everything changed, and began the trillion dollar war on terror. More

Monsanto will OWN and CONTROL roughly 95 percent of all soybeans and 80 percent of all corn grown in the U.S.

2 Comments

Hi Supporter,

The Associated Press just uncovered a series of confidential commercial licensing agreements that give around 200 smaller companies the right to insert Monsanto’s genes (resistant to their Roundup herbicide) in their corn and soybean plants.

This means that Monsanto will OWN and CONTROL roughly 95 percent of all soybeans and 80 percent of all corn grown in the U.S. Monsanto is blocking competition in the seed industry, forcing farmers into growing genetically modified crops, and all the while increasing seed prices. Now, when farmers buy bags of seed from obscure brand names, they are paying for Monsanto’s seeds.

These practices are at the core of the investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice to determine if Monsanto is violating anti-trust laws.

Sign the FRESH petition to the Department of Justice: break up the food monopoly to free our farmers.

http://action.freshthemovie.com/petition.jsp?petition_KEY=617

This could be the first step towards the government taking long-needed action to help break the corporate control in our farming and food system.

For farmers to survive and thrive, we need the government to take action that restores real competition to the farm economy – not the current situation where a few corporations in the grain, seed, dairy and livestock sectors hold excessive control.

Three provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act will expire on December 31. Committees in both the House and Senate have approved renewal bills, but the House version includes much stronger civil liberties protections.

Let’s tell Congress to pass the House version, or pass nothing at all and let these provisions expire using our “I am not afraid” campaign. https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/77

Selective Memory Honorable Senator Durbin?

3 Comments

In another yet “factual” release, The most Honorable upon high Senator Dick Durbin made this statement in reference to the Guantanamo Bay Detainees movement to the state of Illinois:


But Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, the second-highest ranking Democrat in the Senate, has insisted the prisoners could be held “safely and securely.

“No one has ever escaped from one of these facilities,” Durbin told a press conference last month.”


One would beg to differ my esteemed friend. In no particular order one finds:

Two Inmates Escape From Central Texas Federal Prison Facility

Two Women Escape from California Federal Prison (affiliated with the Manson Case. Maybe that was not high profile enough?)

John Kenneth Leighnor, Jr.

Murderer Escapes La. Federal Prison

Federal Prison Escapee Captured

Ex-Johnston art dealer back in court on escape charge (He actually surrendered – much like the GITMO Gang would if they should escape I’m sure)

Andrade Case (reviewed by the United States Supreme Court)


In only the last instance could one give Senator Durbin a “pass” on knowing about  the situation.

After all as only the “Second-Highest Ranking Democrat”, he might never have heard of that obscure body of the Judicial Branch.

My Opinion?

You might want to remove your foot from your mouth Sir.

A Suggested Survival List

By Chuck Baldwin

December 15, 2009

This column is archived here:

One does not have to be a prophet to know that we are on the precipice of some potentially catastrophic–or at the very least, challenging–days. In fact, most of us are already in challenging days, and some are already enduring catastrophic events. That is, if one would call being out of work, losing one’s home, facing life-threatening medical conditions without any prospect of medical insurance, several families being forced to live in one house due to homes being foreclosed, etc., catastrophic.
 
The potential for an escalation of cataclysmic events, however, is very real. Only a “blooming idiot” would call someone who attempts to prepare for “the day of adversity” a Chicken Little now. Anyone who does not see the storm clouds on the horizon isn’t paying attention.

For example, can one imagine what would happen if terrorists nuked a major American city or cities? (Once again, I encourage readers to go get the videos of the CBS TV series “Jericho” to get an idea of how quickly life, and even civilization, could change.) Imagine if there was another 9/11-type event. What would happen if some form of Zimbabwe-style inflation hit the US? What would happen if anything disrupted the distribution of Welfare checks, or food to local grocers? Imagine a Hurricane Katrina-style natural disaster in your town. I think people everywhere are beginning to awaken to just how vulnerable we all really are.

As a result, people from virtually every walk of life have recently been asking my thoughts on how they should prepare. Therefore, I will attempt to share with my readers some of the counsel I have given these folks. READ MORE

 

 

CLIMATE CHANGE IS NATURAL: 100 REASONS WHY

Leave a comment

UK NEWS

HERE are the 100 reasons, released in a dossier issued by the European Foundation, why climate change is natural and not man-made:

1) There is “no real scientific proof” that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.

** EXPRESS NEWS: 100 REASONS WHY GLOBAL WARMING IS NATURAL**

2) Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.

3) Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.

4) After World War II, there was a huge surge in recorded CO2 emissions but global temperatures fell for four decades after 1940.

5) Throughout the Earth’s history, temperatures have often been warmer than now and CO2 levels have often been higher – more than ten times as high.

6) Significant changes in climate have continually occurred throughout geologic time.

7) The 0.7C increase in the average global temperature over the last hundred years is entirely consistent with well-established, long-term, natural climate trends. 

8) The IPCC theory is driven by just 60 scientists and favourable reviewers not the 4,000 usually cited.

9) Leaked e-mails from British climate scientists – in a scandal known as “Climate-gate” – suggest that that has been manipulated to exaggerate global warming  READ MORE

Take back control of your food!

Leave a comment

 

There are two million farmers and 300 million eaters in the United States. Standing between them are a handful of corporations who control how food gets from one side to the other.  

Let’s change the equation. 

For the first time ever, the Department of Justice is on a fact-finding mission looking at how big business controls food and farming — and they want to hear from YOU. They are specifically seeking comments and stories about how corporate control of the food system affects average citizens. If you’re concerned that just a few big businesses have so much power over where your food comes from and how it’s produced, tell the government! Your comments will help to inform a series of hearings on the issue next year.          

E-mail your comments to agriculturalworkshops@usdoj.gov BY DECEMBER 31. The few minutes you take to write your letter could curb big business’s power over our food!

A gigantic fraud

Leave a comment

Founding Father 1776

Essay by Don Stott

What is a gigantic fraud? Washington D.C., that’s what. Just think about Obama’s speech, as a classic example, or for that matter, his and the George Bush entire four year term. Might as well throw in senior Bush, Carter, LBJ and back to JFK for that matter, because JFK was probably the best we have had since colonial times. Obama’s deep voice and expert reading of the teleprompter, makes me think of a Latin term, “Sine scientia ars nihil est.” Which means, “Without knowledge, skill is nothing.”

46 years ago, JFK was murdered by the CIA, LBJ, and probably a lot of others, because he was going to bring the whole mess down. He was going to get rid of the Federal Reserve, bring everyone home from Vietnam, and stop the incessant war making. Do you think the bureaucrats and powers that be, would have stood for that? Of course not. The whole Lee Harvey Oswald, Warren Commission, and bullet that made 90 degree turns, was so false and fake, that it was then, and still is, totally unbelievable. JFK was murdered because he was going to straighten out the mess in D.C. Eisenhower warned about the “Military-Industrial Complex,” and not be ruined by it. That’s exactly what has happened, READ MORE

Wisconsin state officials….A case of the quacks running the institution

Dr. Julian Whittaker’s Newsletter:

The (ADA) American Dietetics Association Must be Stopped in it’s Tracks

WISCONSIN:

Two pending dietary licensing bills in Madison: SB115 AND AB440. If these bills pass health food stores, alternative practitioners and those interested in nutrient dense food protocols will become DIETARY CRIMINALS (charged with the unlicensed practice of dietetics)  if they discuss food. Exemptions: other groups that have lobbyists in Madison. You will be subject to legal fees to defend yourself before the (DPL) Wisconsin Department of Professional Regulation. The two DPL prosecutors have stated in court their alliance to www.quackwatch.org.

Funded by the Pharmaceutical industry. All natural healing and dietary advice is quackery.  See what happened in other states that passed similar laws: Legal expenses ranging from $30,000 to $200,000.

These bill will stifle consumer access to nutritional protocols. Only allowed protocols will be processed foods, Coke, Pepsi and junk food. Keep you ill and take drugs for the symptoms.

ADA advice: 25% of your daily calories from added sugars intake.  Have a soda and a candy bar, it’s OK.

No discussion of food allergies will be permitted.

No discussion of health benefits of raw milk, organic etc.

TOTAL GAG ORDER.

AB440 Dietary Licensing hearing Dec 17 at 10 AM.

Whereas, Patrick Henry said:

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”  James Madison wrote: “It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be tomorrow.  For far too many decades, government, at all levels, operating almost virtually unrestrained by the constitution and lobbied by socialists, radical environmentalists, corporations, bankers, unions and foreigners, has far exceeded its constitutional authority and has continuously assaulted or taken away our constitutional, individual rights as regards the ownership of our land, as well as many other of our freedoms and liberties, as guaranteed and protected by the U.

If you disagree with the CO2/global warming proponents, you will be verbally attacked and insulted

This is a difficult message to send out, because many of us have discovered that if you disagree with the CO2/global warming proponents, you will be verbally attacked and insulted. Regrettably, I participated in some of that nasty behavior myself. The good news for me is that I was able to attend a subsequent meeting of the group I had verbally attacked for their skeptical global warming position and apologize to them – which I did.

My message to the good Democrat environmentalists who care about the environment and loathe corruption
If you take the time to investigate the recently released email communications of the leading climatologists promoting man-made global warming, it becomes apparent that the CO2/global warming issue has corruption and fraud written all over it.

If you have don’t have time to review the following articles, their essence is superbly and eloquently expressed by Lord Monkton in this short 10 minute video:

South Dakota Milk Producers Under Fire By Department of Agriculture

South Dakota Dairy Farmers – Not Qualified – Can’t Meet Corporate

“I am now being led to ask all kinds of questions that every American should be asking. Are we to be forced into eating foods that cause diseases? Do the people of a free nation (this free nation) still have the right to pursue happiness and their health? Who is behind all of this? I am wondering: even if the SD Department of Agriculture really hears our cry, can they make a decision of their own? Do they represent the desires of the people of SD or are they being influenced by some big corporation or entity? Where does this agenda to rid the small dairies who provide raw milk really originate, because this fight is being seen in every state of our free nation.”

Publishers Note:

Dear readers the following letter was mailed to me from Lila Streff of Streff Ridge Farm Goat Dairy in Custer South Dakota.  I find this letter to be one of the most critical letters to the editor I have received in years and highly recommend you read it in its entirety.

I am the youngest of 10 children raised in the country on real food. We had a huge garden, raised our own beef, chickens, and even a pig once. Of course we had eggs from free-range chickens, we made bread everyday, and milked cows and goats. The goats were added to the farm when I was born.

My wonderful mom, who is 85 years old now, nearly died having me. She lived through it, Praise God, but after hemorrhaging so badly, she could not breast feed me. Doctors tried every different kind of formula and store produced milk that they could find , but  I couldn’t keep any of it down. Basically I was dying, is what the doctors said. Then one doctor said he thought goat’s milk might be my last hope. My parents purchased a goat and as I thrived, my whole family was also blessed with goat’s milk from that day on. We all grew up milking goats and cows learning many valuable lessons from farm life. We sold and shared milk with a whole lot of people.

My mom became the “goat lady” in our area. There were so many “real- life” stories of how people were helped by this unique commodity. Mostly I heard of those who had babies that needed it as I did. Goat’s milk digests in about 20 minutes and the nutrients are “bio-available” or “readily accessible”. Then there were those who had ulcers and found immediate relief. Goat’s milk has Alkaline Ash in it that neutralizes the acid in the stomach so that an ulcer can heal. This raw milk helped so many people. I never ever heard of anyone who got sick from it.

“Jeanette, it’s the most applicable spiritual work I’ve read since M.Scott Peck five years ago. I’ve read some Carl Jung and you do him proud—very clear. I’ve read Michael Morewood—you’re smoother and more personal. I’ve read John Shelby Spong—you’re more Catholic. I’ve read Matthew Fox and you’re more concise.

For me as a cradle Catholic also, it’s a radical, life-changing, soul-enhancing book. Congratulations! “

Christianity mistakes its myth for history and its symbol for fact.

In this non-literal and inclusive interpretation of Christian doctrine Jeanette Blonigen Clancy urges Christians to abandon their claim to being the one and only true religion. With evidence from scholars and a variety of traditions, Clancy examines questions about__ 

            the Christ

            truth and myth in scripture,

            God and human consciousness,

Her answers to these questions will delight many, disturb others, and fascinate all readers.

Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Native Americans, Jews, atheists, and pagans are included with Christians in this synthesis of spiritual currents. Here is a vision of global harmony

Are Federal Health Insurance Mandates Constitutional?

Leave a comment

Link

by Rob Natelson

There have been some on-line discussions recently of whether a federal mandate that individuals obtain health insurance would violate the U.S. Constitution. This issue is distinct from the issue of whether other sorts of government health programs – such as single-payer – would be constitutional.

It is also distinct from whether states can impose insurance mandates. They can: States have general governmental powers. But the federal government has only the powers enumerated (listed) by the Constitution.

Let us be clear at the outset that federal involvement in health care (except in a few isolated instances, such as federal employee benefits) certainly violates the Constitution as that document was originally understood.

I have now spent nearly twenty-years of my life researching and publishing scholarly studies on the Founding-Era record, and I have found no significant evidence that those who wrote and ratified the Constitution thought federal power would extend to health care. Quite the contrary: When the Constitution was being promoted to the public, one of the big selling points was that regulation of all such matters would remain exclusively with the statesContinue Reading
