Zero Hedge - Having previously shown the dramatic build-up of NATO
fighter jets around Russia's border, we thought mapping the rising
number of "incidents" - which are worse than during the cold war -

Deutsche Bank's Modest Proposal To Central Banks: "Purchase The Gold

Zero Hedge - "... the idea of gold purchases has merit because of the

Rand Paul’s ISIS Proposal Allows Boots On The Ground… Say What!?
Robby Soave - The Daily Beast reported earlier today that Sen. Rand Paul
has flipflopped on his opposition to "boots on the ground" in the

violence between spouses and dating partners. As the tally of fatal
police shootings rises, law enforcement watchdogs say it is time to
treat deadly force as a potentially serious public safety problem.

from Your Pets
Dr. Becker - The Humane Society Legislative Fund (HSLF) estimates that

Cats and especially dogs are attracted to the taste of the antifreeze
and will lick it off the ground. Another way dogs ingest the toxin is
from the toilet bowl in homes where antifreeze is used to winterize
pipes. If a cat walks through a puddle of antifreeze and then licks her
paws, she can ingest enough to cause death.

Federal government to monitor Twitter, track conservative users,

Prescription drug vending machines now being installed on
college campuses across America
(NaturalNews) American college students -- who are already the
most over-medicated population on the planet -- now have an even
easier way to pollute their brains with SSRI drugs,
antidepressants, antipsychotics and prescription "speed"
amphetamines which are routinely abused by students for final
exam cram study sessions. "School officials didn't specify
exactly what kind of drugs will be available in the machine, but
said it would contain 50 medications that are most commonly
prescribed to college students," reports CBS News.
Modern pills shown to encourage people to eat more junk
(NaturalNews) Weight loss is difficult, not because losing
weight is impossible, but because it takes time, patience and
consistency in doing all the right things. So unappealing,
right? So, millions of people have turned to modern medical
fixes that are supposed to make it easy -- and it appears to be
backfiring, according to a recent study.
Antibiotics can increase spread, severity of Salmonella
(NaturalNews) In some cases, treating people or animals with
antibiotics may cause them to spread Salmonella infections more
rapidly, and even in some cases to develop more severe
infections. This may be more likely to occur in those who are
not showing any current symptoms of salmonellosis but are
receiving antibiotics for some other reason.
Preventing Kidney Stones May Be As Simple As Changing Your Diet
Dr. Mercola - Once you’ve had them, your risk of recurrence
increases. About 35 percent to 50 percent of people will have

issued by the American College of Physicians (ACP), one of the
simplest strategies you can take is to drink more water.
Mainstream media finally exposes secretive vaccine court
(NaturalNews) Part of the problem is that, unlike typical civil
court cases, vaccine court cases do not have to rule in favor of
the plaintiffs for vaccine attorneys to get paid. Because of
this, the vaccine court system is clogged with cases, some of
which lack even basic evidence of harm caused by vaccines -- who
cares when you're getting paid, right? Some vaccine attorneys
also intentionally over-bill for their time since they receive
payments directly from the government, a.k.a. taxpayers, rather
Cannabis ‘Dramatically Reduces’ Growth of Brain Cancer Cells:
Natural Society - The research showed that two active chemical
components found in cannabis plants, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
and cannabidiol (CBD), helped in the treatment of cancerous
brain tumors. This is one of the most difficult types of cancer
to treat effectively, and the rate of survival for patients who
get brain cancer is often very low. For many – once they receive
a diagnosis – they are given a short five years to live; any
hope of living after their prognosis is given a mere 10% chance.
Those are some stark statistics.

PETA Accused of Kidnapping and Euthanizing Family Dog
The Daily Sheeple - Cerate checked his security camera and the
video shows a van with “PETA” on the side back into his
driveway. Two women got out of the van and one walked up his
porch, took Maya, and put her in the back of the van.... It
turns out they were asked by the property owners to round up
stray dogs in the area.... After PETA was contacted, they
arrived at his front door a few days later bearing a token fruit
basket, and informed him that his dog had been euthanized. So
far the owner has showed more restraint than most people would
be capable of during such a bizarre and painful experience.

Ebola tests can show false negatives, doctors shocked to learn

Wireless Technology: The “Trojan Horse” Attack on Public Health
Memory Hole Blog - It’s the amount of energy it takes to begin
heating up your body like a microwave oven does. By the way,
cellphones and wireless use the same frequency–2.4 gigahertz–as
do microwave ovens. So they have the most harmful effects. The
reason a microwave oven works is that it’s the frequency that
has the most resonance with water. It heats up the water most …
The same thing happens in the body because we’re made of 80%
water or more. The body’s water resonates with this and absorbs
the radiation. It couldn’t be more of a deadly weapon.

13 Chemicals Used In U.S. Food Products That Are Banned In Other

many other countries ban these additives and find safer
alternatives. Why does this happen? Mostly because many American
citizens are just uninformed and uneducated on this matter, they
choose to not speak out against it, and instead they keep buying

GMO trees proposed to "rescue" American chestnut from invasive
Ars Technica - The relationship between the US public and
genetically modified organisms is a bit ambiguous. Efforts to

Watch out: the US government wants to pass new spying laws
behind your back
The Guardian - Now, as the post-election lame-duck session opens
on Wednesday in Washington, the Senate might try to sneak
through a “cybersecurity” bill that would, as the ACLU puts it,

ISPs Removing Their Customers' Email Encryption

Mercury, root canals, cavitations - Is your mouth killing you?
(NaturalNews) Few people are aware that auto-immune disease,
chronic illnesses, and acute illnesses may be related to mercury
poisoning from dental fillings or unresolved infection involving
a root canal or extraction. In our society, conventional
medicine and conventional dentistry both separate the mouth from

between each tooth and vital organs or the mouth's ability to
create systemic illness. Systemic illness is also often a sign
of undiagnosed oral disease.
Three natural remedies for removing skin tags

Can People Receiving Live Virus Vaccines Transmit Vaccine Strain
Virus to Others?
Dr. Mercola - Smallpox, for example, is transmitted via body
fluids. And, when you get a live attenuated smallpox vaccine,
which contains live attenuated vaccinia virus, you can develop
vaccinia virus (VACV or VV) strain infection, which you can then
transmit to others. The same is true for polio and the live oral
polio vaccine (OPV).
West Virginia: Forcing Children to Become Autistic, by LAW
Activist Post - Dr. William Thompson, Senior Scientist with the
Centers for Disease Control, publicly admitted in August 2014
that the CDC covered up data linking the MMR vaccine to Autism
in 1998. Since then, nothing at all has been done; children are
still lining up to play Russian Roulette with 'shots' of
Autism…. The state of West Virginia has been notified and the
above information is in the public domain, and yet NO ACTION AT
ALL has been taken to stop the forced maiming and possible
death. No standard waiver is available at all and medical
waivers are difficult and many times impossible to get. And,
politically, instead of a matter of policy, local health
departments have the final say.

(NaturalNews) Have you noticed that, in the past few weeks, the
mainstream media has stopped reporting on suspected cases of
Ebola in the United States? That's because they've been asked
not to do so -- at least until those suspected of having the

that the mainstream media -- The Associated Press in particular
-- was asked to refrain from reporting on the suspected cases by
the Obama Administration.

wealth confiscation, people controls, price and wage controls,
pension nationalizations, etc.

developer money would make up the difference to reach full sale
price, the mayor said.
