This eloquently sums up the Obama position on the NSA and Snowden:

Obama to Snowden: thanks for showing me the gaping hole we tore in the Constitution. Here’s a Band-Aid. Now please go to jail.

Pentagon arming US police with MRAP combat vehicles

If you carry your fair share of years like me, you will remember the days when the police wore short sleeve blue shirts, might have even been unarmed and perhaps even where you encouraged your children to go if they got lost…

This scenario is a long, long way from that.

Truth about the Séralini rat-tumor-GMO study explodes

Jon Rappoport discusses the double standards in handling of Séralini’s rat tumour experiments far more eloquently than I could begin to. It was OK for Monsanto to use those same rats and the same sample size years before and have the results published – but not when Séralini replicated their work, ran it for longer and got a different outcome. But the gun has been fired and it is smoking.

As I discussed in this article, there was an outcry from scientists when the Seralini paper was withdrawn, and it was also pointed out that ex-Monsanto employee Richard Goodman was appointed to the newly created post of associate editor for biotechnology at FCT, the publisher. This is how they play the game. It’s how the FDA was willing to introduce the “doctrine of substantial equivalence” back in Bush Snr’s Presidency. Yep, GMO and ordinary grains are the same. Let’s just allow them to flow unfettered into the American food chain with no testing. And it continues to today.

What Jon does mention is the European Commission is spending 3 million Euros to actually do that Séralini study again, run it for two years, use 50 or more rats and look at the carcinogenicity. The lid will not be kept on these processes to reduce the population through unhealthy grain and all of the fast food and pre-packaged products that contain them. At the very least, the truth will out if not lives saved. And perhaps the games played with wheat that precede what is considered GMO that I discuss here will also come forth. You begin to get very selective about what you eat when you understand these things.

Is our Sun falling silent?

Thank you, Graham.

Well, well, well. The good old Beeb Beeb Ceeb has reported the solar shutdown. Not only that, it mentioned the Maunder Minimum. Don’t they know it’s politically incorrect to mention EITHER of these things?

I quote:

“It’s completely taken me and many other solar scientists by surprise,” says Dr Lucie Green, from University College London’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory.

The drop off in activity is happening surprisingly quickly, and scientists are now watching closely to see if it will continue to plummet.

“It could mean a very, very inactive star, it would feel like the Sun is asleep… a very dormant ball of gas at the centre of our Solar System,” explains Dr Green.

This, though, would certainly not be the first time this has happened.

During the latter half of the 17th Century, the Sun went through an extremely quiet phase – a period called the Maunder Minimum.

Historical records reveal that sunspots virtually disappeared during this time.

Dr Green says: “There is a very strong hint that the Sun is acting in the same way now as it did in the run-up to the Maunder Minimum.”

Mike Lockwood, professor of space environment physics, from the University of Reading, thinks there is a significant chance that the Sun could become increasingly quiet.

An analysis of ice-cores, which hold a long-term record of solar activity, suggests the decline in activity is the fastest that has been seen in 10,000 years.

“It’s an unusually rapid decline,” explains Prof Lockwood.

Londoners enjoyed frost fairs on the Thames in the 17th Century

“We estimate that within about 40 years or so there is a 10% to 20% – nearer 20% – probability that we’ll be back in Maunder Minimum conditions.”

The era of solar inactivity in the 17th Century coincided with a period of bitterly cold winters in Europe.

Londoners enjoyed frost fairs on the Thames after it froze over, snow cover across the continent increased, the Baltic Sea iced over – the conditions were so harsh, some describe it as a mini-Ice Age.

And Prof Lockwood believes that this regional effect could have been in part driven by the dearth of activity on the Sun, and may happen again if our star continues to wane.

End of quote.

No doubt our global warming “experts” will continue to explain it away…
