War Declared in Miami Beach as City Begins Air Drop of Neurotoxic Pesticide (Video)

4 Comments

I agree……..this is an act of war on the people of Florida by their own governments both state and federal.

Memory Hole

Ron Johnson

[As CDC Director Thomas Frieden threatens Congress that Zika will spread if his agency doesn’t receive more taxpayer money for questionable research on the virus, Miami Beach is officially moving forward with its program of spraying its population with the organophosphate pesticide Naled in an alleged attempt to control the area’s mosquito population, and thus Zika. Unfortunately as we have attempted to relate at MHB the inhalation of such a neurotoxic substance produces effects far more deleterious than Zika, and can resemble symptoms that could be easily mistaken for the virus.-Ed.]

What You Should Know About Zika and the Spraying of ‘Naled’

Memory Hole

zika-mosquitoSubmitted by Cori Gunnells

Pesticides are being used to kill adult mosquitoes, and authorities argue this is to prevent the spread of the Zika virus. It’s not.

Zika isn’t as frightening as ‘Naled’ and other organophosphate pesticides presently being  on a mass scale, purportedly for mosquito control.

The CDC is telling people that aerial applications of these insecticides can be done “safely, quickly and efficiently.”

Yet one must ask, “Who is making these decisions to spray civilian populations, without their permission, without properly informing them of the dangers, and who has a vested interest in the financial end of such decisions?

Florida Governor Rick Scott might have some things needing disclosure, as the Florida Bulldog  reports, especially since he is closely tied to entities profiting from the sale of such pesticides.

The 15th Anniversary of the Crime and Cover-up of the Century (9/11/01)

4 Comments

 “What Really Happened”?

new-logo25By Gary G. Kohls, MD

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sadly, NPR, MPR and WPR – my usually respected regional public radio stations (that regularly ask me for money) – have resolutely refused to interview any of the multitude of scientists, researchers, scholars and authors who have amassed mountains of court-of-law-ready evidence that 9/11 was a criminal false flag operation. All the evidence points to it being an inside job.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WTC Building exploding into fine dust (it is not burning down) by pre-planted explosives in an obvious controlled demolition. The arrow points to a “squib” of exploding gas which is commonly seen with controlled demolitions. Some of the “splinters” seen (the only solid objects that did not pulverize into dust) are actually chunks of steel beams that were being exploded upward and laterally. The nicely-sectioned steel beams and girders were soon ordered by New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to be trucked away and shipped to China – an order that constitutes disturbing a crime scene – which is a federal crime.

I just received the latest PBS (Public Broadcasting System) monthly schedule for September and discovered that PBS’s newest documentary, entitled “9/11: Inside the Pentagon” will be broad-casting and the re-broadcasting the program a total of 8 times over the week surrounding 9/11/16!

I tried but was unable to view the documentary in its entirety online, but in the trailer there was breathless, tear-jerking testimony from several of the Pentagon employees that survived the professed crash of Flight 77. However, researchers and true investigative reporters have long known that it wasn’t flight 77 that hit the Pentagon that day, since the damage to the various walls of the Pentagon could only have been done by a much smaller aircraft, such as a missile (or perhaps a $222, 000,000 USAF Global Hawk surveillance drone). Also there was no evidence of debris from the aluminum body, wings and tail section of a 100 ton Boeing 757.

The only so-called evidence for Flight 77 hitting the Pentagon that the DOD eventually produced were five ridiculously unconvincing and obviously photo-shopped images that supposedly showed a plane in one frame and fiery explosions in three of the frames. (For information on the crime and cover-up at the Pentagon and a detailed expose of the infamous, obviously doctored still pictures that, interestingly, were dated 9/12/01, 17:37 (5:37 pm) rather than 9/11/01, 9:37 (9:37 am)  the actual time of the hit), go to: http://911research.wtc7.net/mirrors/guardian2/pentagon/what-hit-it.htm.

And of course there was no plane debris from a 100 ton plane lying around outside of the  re-enforced concrete walls at the Pentagon. There are no indestructible titanium jet engines, no luggage, no passenger seats, no indestructible black boxes and no passenger body parts that always litter the scene of passenger plane crashes.

If you aren’t smelling a rat by now, you’re not paying attention. Don’t expect PBS to raise any uncomfortable questions about 9/11 in their documentary.

Sadly, NPR, MPR and WPR – my usually respected regional public radio stations (that regularly ask me for money) – have resolutely refused to interview any of the multitude of scientists, researchers, scholars and authors who have amassed mountains of court-of-law-ready evidence that 9/11 was a criminal false flag operation. All the evidence points to it being an inside job.

The unwelcome, provable facts documenting the conspiracies and the subsequent cover-ups (that are conspiracy theories no longer) that really happened on 9/11/01 is obviously a taboo subject that the mainstream media is terrified of, even among the many supposedly trustworthy investigative journalists that are on the staffs of those stations. They apparently have received orders from above to censor the truth, are afraid of losing their jobs or for some other reason can’t handle the truth.

Similarly, the usually-honorable PBS seems to keep subtly misinforming its viewers with various slanted Frontline documentaries that, for just one example, has promoted the alleged safety and efficacy of Big Pharma’s toxic drugs and Big Vaccine’s neurotoxic and autoimmunity-inducing infant vaccines. It also has continued accepting the sponsorship of NOVA from David Koch and then squashed an expose of the nefarious agendas of the Koch Brothers.

PBS has never screened any of the multitudes of powerful and irrefutable 9/11 Truth documentaries that are already out there (see a list of my personal best ones further below). And now, with the Pentagon on 9/11, PBS has produced what looks like another human interest pablum puff piece that will certainly get most undiscerning PBS viewers to look the other way.

And they are showing it EIGHT TIMES IN ONE WEEK! Outrageous!

But readers should be reminded about the fact that those who willingly and knowingly cover-up crimes are themselves guilty of criminal conduct, and they can be prosecuted. Most people regard the horrendous events of 9/11/01 as the Crime of the Century; so those who knowingly cover up those crimes are technically guilty of crimes themselves. Should that standard apply to editors and publishers (and their reporters) of the TV, radio and print media outlets that inform us (or misinform or dis-inform us)? I think so.

And, despite their supposed crime-fighting reputation, the FBI collaborated in – and covered-up the Crime by almost instantaneously confiscating private video surveillance cameras from nearby businesses. And the Pentagon never released the evidence that would have proved or disproved what many eyewitnesses observed: that no commercial jet hit the Pentagon on 9/11/01. (If the videos had actually showed an airliner, the Cheney/Bush administration would surely have flaunted those videos.) . More

Drug companies donated millions to California lawmakers before vaccine debate

This is the money that bribed the California legislators to pass the mandatory vaccination bill putting the lives, health and well being of hundreds of thousands of children in jeopardy.  This was never about the health of these children……it was about making money.  Never has there been such a clear cut example of how politicians sell their votes and the favors of their office while betraying the people they swore to represent.  Marti O

A subplot to the vociferous debate over the student vaccination bill moving through California’s Capitol is opponents’ allegations that the effort reflects the influence of the pharmaceutical industry.

Critics of Senate Bill 277, which would eliminate the personal belief and religious exemptions for schoolchildren, accuse the measure’s supporters in the Legislature of doing the bidding of donors who make vaccines and other pharmaceuticals.

CDC Unveils Forced Vaccination and Quarantine Policy

6 Comments

“At this point the concerned citizen has more than enough to question what’s really afoot here. A population so propagandized and ill-informed on the negligible threat posed by Zika could easily mistake Naled’s effects for the mild symptoms characterizing the virus–much as Pyriproxyfen proved cause for a similar frenzy among public health officials in Brazil. This would provide the basis for an ambitious and wide scale federal effort to quarantine one or more areas and introduce related emergency measures now being dictated by the CDC.”

 

There is something in these vaccines that is going to adversely affect the global population. There is something they are trying to do via the vaccines. You cannot look at the current state of medical/science/pharmacology and seriously conclude that our health is the focus. We have never been in more danger from corporate non-scientific, experimental programs than we are at this time. I have concluded…….they really DO what us dead.

Zika Vaccine Development Proceeds Alongside Mass Aerial Spraying of Subject Populations

By James F. Tracy 

On August 15, 2016 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) invited “public comment” on an especially disturbing edict that will allow the federal agency alongside the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to quarantine entire geographic areas of the United States, restrict the movement and behavior of inhabitants in these areas, and ultimately require they undergo vaccination–in a voluntary manner of course–or face criminal prosecution. 

Doctor Does Injection Child Vaccination Baby David Dees, ddees.com

In fact, municipalities need only be given a vague “precommunicable” designation to undergo an overall loss of civil liberties that can include mandatory vaccination. 

This action is being unilaterally undertaken by a bureaucracy that in recent months has proceeded in a thoroughly irresponsible manner to hype the alleged dangers of the Zika virus, even promoting the aerial dispersion of a toxic substance…

CDC Quarantine Committee Working To Force Vaccinate All Americans

5 Comments

Written and researched by Marcella Piper-Terry of VaxTruth.org

I am currently reading the Federal Register article on the CDC’s proposed measures for “Control of Communicable Diseases.”

This is REAL.

If you remember the movie, “Contagion,” the CDC’s power grab reads like the script.
Detainment, imprisonment (indefinite), forced medical examinations, forced treatment, forced vaccination…
for MEASLES.

The CDC is lumping MEASLES in with Ebola.

If you have seen the outrage over Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand during the national anthem, and you don’t think he has reason to protest the actions of the United States, you need to read this article. The United States government is rapidly surpassing Hitler in their oppressive and illegal use of force against citizens who refuse to inject themselves or their children with experimental vaccines that have never been tested for carcinogenic or mutagenic effects, or for impairment of fertility.

Our government is so financially invested in vaccines that they are passing rules and regulations to take away your BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS to say NO to forced vaccination – for what is a mild, childhood infection, and for which the death rate in the United States had decreased nearly 100% BEFORE the vaccine was even invented.

If this regulation passes, entire cities could be under forced quarantine and citizens lined up and vaccinated under government force – whenever there is a case of suspected measles identified. That means this will be happening routinely – and especially at the beginning of every school year when recently vaccinated children are spreading measles to their classmates. More

Intelligent Parents are Refusing Vaccinations

2 Comments

Dr Sircus.com

September 1, 2016Image result

Live Science is reporting that more parents are refusing to vaccinate their children now than a decade ago because they simply do not see a need for vaccination. Researchers have found that in 2013, 87 percent of pediatricians surveyed said they encountered vaccine refusals from parents of their patients, up from 75 percent of pediatricians who said the same in 2006.

Intelligent parents who refused to vaccinate their kids understand how unnecessary and dangerous vaccines are and such parents see the payoff, their kids tend to remain healthier with less colds and infections. Vaccine-preventable diseases are rare these days and many of them started to disappear before vaccines where created for each specific disease.

Live Science is biased when it comes to vaccines so it is not surprising that they say that many parents delay vaccination out of the mistaken belief that vaccines may burden children’s immune systems. There is no mistake about it. Vaccines do reduce natural immunity and can clobber the immune system causing death or many chronic diseases.

Mokie Pratt Porter  Bio

Mokie Pratt Porter, the Director of Communications for Vietnam Veterans of America, has been with VVA since 1985. From 1992-2007, she held the position of editor of The VVA Veteran, assigning hundreds of articles on the myriad issues facing America’s veterans.

She has attended several sessions of the World Veterans Federation; has taken 14 trips to Vietnam in her capacity as the staff coordinator for the Veterans Initiative Task Force, VVA’s veteran-to-veteran effort to assist the Vietnamese with their MIA accounting effort, with the hope of engendering reciprocal cooperation in the accounting of missing Americans; and has made three trips to Ukraine to meet with Vietnam veterans of the former Soviet Union who have been forthcoming with records of downed American aircraft.

Currently she is initiating the “Faces of Agent Orange,” an effort to educate the American public by putting a human face on the generational impact of Agent Orange/ Dioxin and other battlefield exposures.

Ms. Porter is the co-editor of Inside the Pentagon Papers, an oral history of those who participated in the leaking of these secret documents. She is the recipient of VVA’s highest award, the Commendation Medal, as well as the Chapel of Four Chaplains Legion of Honor Award; AVVA President’s Award, and Veterans Against Drugs Commit to Life Award.

An Overdue Expose of Electroconvulsive “Therapy”

3 Comments

Duty to Warn

new-logo25kohlsBy Gary G. Kohls, MD

 

 

 

Iconic Image from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”

ECTA couple of days ago I wrote to an internet acquaintance who had mentioned that a severely depressed friend of hers was at the end of her ropes after failing to improve with a recent series of electroconvulsant therapy (ECT), something that had helped in the past. The following is part of my response:

In response to your testimony about the person who had a temporary improvement from a series of ECT “therapy” sessions (AKA, “sub-lethal electrocutions of the brain that reliably produces seizures and coma”).

ECT is usually administered daily for a week or two. It is important to understand that electroshock psychiatrists can easily get rich if they have enough desperate or hopeless, medication-intoxicated patients in their practice who are drug-treatment “failures”. ECT is usually only recommend when every imaginable, potentially cocktail of neurotoxic or psychotoxic psych drugs has been tried and failed (or actually made the patient worse).

The variety of the cocktail combinations of the hundreds of different psychiatric drugs and doses approaches infinity, and none of the combinations has ever been tested for safety or efficacy (either short-term or long-term) even in rat labs! The experimentation with different combinations of psychiatric drugs is pharmacology at its worst. But the iatrogenic damage (iatrogenic means “an illness caused by a physician or a drug prescribed by a physician”) done to an innocent, trusting patient will hardly ever be proven in a court of law – only partly because lawyers who will take such cases are so rare, especially in an area where a lawyer’s livelihood depends on not offending the prestigious health care community.

Sadly, there are also close to zero psychiatrists who would consider going through the time-consuming effort of gradually and systematically eliminating potentially neurotoxic and psychotoxic drugs that might actually be making their psychiatric patients worse. To spend valuable clinic time trying to eliminate neurotoxic and neurotransmitter-depleting drugs would be akin to admitting that the patient might have an iatrogenic illness, and that seems to be a taboo subject.

Unfortunately, most physicians are not trained at safely helping to get their patients off potentially toxic drugs or admitting that the prescribed drugs could be poisonous and disease-producing. Physicians are, however, very good at putting their patients on drugs. As I have written many times in this column, it only takes 2 minutes to write a prescription, but it takes 20 minutes to NOT write a prescription.

ECT typically adversely affects both short-term and long-term memory (often permanently destroying it!), so that some of any perceived temporary “improvement” occurs because the patient may no longer remember the traumatizing interpersonal/sexual/social/psychological/spiritual conflicts that previously made them feel sad, nervous, depressed, anxious or hopeless.

Studies have shown that many physicians reach for their prescription pad within minutes of most clinic encounters. Knowing that time is money, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know which of the “two-or-twenty-minute” options is promoted by medical clinic administrators or the many profit-making sectors of Big Medicine, Big Psychiatry and Big Pharma.

The excerpts below come from a vitally-important article that most electroshock psychiatrists can’t bring themselves to read, much less acknowledge or understand, and that closed-mindedness also may include the physicians who refer patients for ECT after the experimental trials with drug cocktails have failed.

The piece was written by Leonard Roy Frank a “psychiatric survivor” (google the term) who lived in San Francisco until his death in 2015. Frank was also an electroshock/insulin coma survivor, a long-time activist for human rights, and an editor/writer.

In 1962, after finishing college, his alarmed parents found him living a hippie/vegetarian/meditative alternative life-style in California and, “logically” assuming that he was mentally ill, committed him – against his well – to psychiatric facilities where he was mis-diagnosed as schizophrenic. Frank somehow survived the large number of insulin shock/coma treatments that were followed by the “new and improved” electroshock treatments. He lost his memory but retained his intellectual ability to relearn what he had lost.

In 1974, after he recovered from those diagnostic and therapeutic misadventures, he co-founded the Network Against Psychiatric Assault (NAPA). He edited The History of Shock Treatment (self-published) in 1978 and wrote the Electroshock Quotationary.

A major part of the following article is based on his testimony on behalf of Support Coalition International at a public hearing on the dangers of ECT conducted by the Mental Health Committee of the New York State Assembly in Manhattan on May 18, 2001. Frank was deeply involved in MindFreedom International and often picketed the American Psychiatric Association’s annual meetings.

The story of Frank’s life is summarized at: http://www.madinamerica.com/2013/05/the-journey-of-transformation/.

If the Brain Is a Terrible Thing to Damage, Why Do Psychiatrists Electroshock People?

By Leonard Roy Frank (2001)

For more information, see: http://www.ect.org/news/newyork/franktest.html

Electroshock is psychiatry’s way of burying its mistakes without killing the patients.” –Leonard Roy Frank

Introduction

Electroshock (also known as electroconvulsive “treatment” or electroshock “treatment” [ECT or EST]) is one of psychiatry’s physical methods for ”treating” people diagnosed as “mentally ill.” The technique as presently used involves the administration of anesthetic and muscle-relaxant drugs prior to applying 100 to 400 volts of electricity for .05 to 4 seconds to the brain thereby triggering a grand-mal convulsion lasting from 30 and 60 seconds.

The convulsion is followed by a coma, usually lasting a few minutes, after which the subject awakens to experience a number of the following effects: fear, confusion, disorientation, amnesia, apathy (“emotional blunting”), dizziness, headache, mental dullness, nausea, muscle ache, physical weakness, and delirium. Most of these subside after a few hours, but amnesia, apathy, learning difficulties, and loss of creativity, drive, and energy may last for weeks or months. In many instances they are in some measure permanent. The intensity, number, and spacing of the individual electroshocks in a series greatly influence the severity and persistence of these effects.

Surveys indicate that two-thirds of those undergoing ECT today are women and that upwards of half are 60 years of age and older. Reports of ECT use on individuals as old as 102 (Alexopoulos, 1989) and as young as 34 months (Bender, 1955) have appeared in the professional literature. For people diagnosed with “depression,” the group most commonly electroshocked, an ECT series usually consists of 6 to 12 individual electroshocks administered three times a week on an inpatient basis. For people diagnosed with “manic-depression” (also called “bipolar disorder”), a series may consist of as many 20 seizures usually administered at the same rate but sometimes given daily. For people diagnosed with “schizophrenia,” as many as 35 electroshocks may be administered in a single series. More
