(Article by Jon Rappoport, republished from jonrappoport.wordpress.com)

If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.

Read carefully—ABC News reports. My comments are in brackets:

“Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that’s ‘vital to our national interests’, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Friday that he’s designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure…”

[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]

“’Given the vital role elections play in this country, it is clear that certain systems and assets of election infrastructure meet the definition of critical infrastructure, in fact and in law’,” Johnson said in a statement. He added: ‘Particularly in these times, this designation is simply the right and obvious thing to do’.”

[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]

“The determination came after months of review and despite opposition from many states worried that the designation would lead to increased federal regulation or oversight on the many decentralized and locally run voting systems across the country. It was announced on the same day a declassified U.S. intelligence report said Russian President Vladimir Putin ‘ordered’ an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election.”

[Also known as: “we needed an excuse, a fake cover story for our takeover, and Russia is it.”]

“Such a change [in who controls the US election process] does not require presidential action [or Congressional approval], and only requires the secretary [of DHS] to first consult with the assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism.”

[Also known as: “this is a coup by the White House.”]

“Johnson said election infrastructure included storage facilities, polling places and vote tabulation locations, plus technology involved in the process, including voter registration databases, voting machines and other systems used to manage the election process and report and display results.”

[Also known as: “We’re taking over every significant aspect of the national election process.”]

“The designation [of US elections as critical infrastructure] allows for information to be withheld from the public when state, local and private partners meet to discuss election infrastructure security — potentially injecting secrecy into an election process that’s traditionally and expressly a transparent process. U.S. officials say such closed door conversations allow for frank discussion that would prevent bad actors from learning about vulnerabilities. DHS would also be able to grant security clearances when appropriate and provide more detailed threat information to states.”

[Also known as: “we can intercede in the election process and determine its outcome without any need to pretend we’re being transparent; only people we approve will know the details of how we run elections; secrecy works.”]

“The Obama administration has proposed international cyber rules for peacetime that would expressly note that countries shouldn’t conduct online activity targeting critical [US] infrastructure, which will now also include election systems.”

[Also known as: “in case there is any doubt, elections systems in America will be property of the federal Executive Branch.”]

This is a coup.

This is equivalent to declaring a national state of emergency, including martial law: the DHS, if it deemed it necessary, could utilize armed agents to enforce the new directive and take over states’ offices that resist.

Election-processes belong to the states. But not anymore.

And of course, with this awesome new power, the DHS could intercede, behind the scenes, in the voting process and rig elections.

There is an additional aligned factor at work in this op: the proposed elimination of the Electoral College—yet another measure designed to “federalize” the election process.

Most people are entirely ignorant of the fact that the Constitution was a pact among states. With reluctance, the independent states agreed to relinquish certain specified powers to the newly created central government, while retaining all other powers.

The Electoral College was, therefore, a natural invention, because the states would maintain crucial influence in determining the outcome of presidential elections. State Electors would cast their presidential votes based on which candidate won in their state.

Eliminating the Electoral College now would add one more layer of federal control over the whole country, and take control from the states. More centralization.

Imagine it. Only the popular vote counts. The states are dumped. And on top of it all, the Dept. of Homeland Security has the power to run the election process as a piece of “critical infrastructure.”

Rigging the vote in New York and California, plus a few other populous states, would decide the election. And in time, no one would think about “New York” or “California” as separate entities—because they wouldn’t be. They would just be “more land and people” that are part of “wholly unified” America.

This is perfect for the “unity politicians” who spout empty rhetoric every chance they get—“we’re all in this together.” As I tirelessly point out, such slogans are nothing less than covert ops, and their goal is roping in as many dullards as possible under a messianic banner of A Better Life for All under a Beneficent Government.

Also known as: we the rulers decree, you the people submit; your survival depends on us; we give and take as we will, and that shall be the whole of the law.

Eventually, why have presidential elections at all? Just allow the DHS to determine which candidate will best serve the needs and desires of the controllers.

It’s cleaner, simpler, and more direct.

It’s a coup.

Will Trump cancel it?

Obama is basically challenging him to do it—which would create one more firestorm in the press directed at Trump.

“See, the new president just stopped the DHS from protecting our sacred free elections. Trump is exhibiting more treasonous cooperation with his Russian masters…he’s leaving the door wide open for their secret invasion against our liberties…”

The timeline is clear. One: Hillary will surely win the election. Two: Trump won the election. Three: Trump won because Russia “hacked the election” in his favor. Four: We must protect our national election process from foreign hacking. Five: Homeland Security must put itself in charge of national elections.

Stay tuned.

A coup just occurred.

Plans to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding could save hundreds of millions of dollars (and thousands of lives) /biggovernment/2017-01-13-plans-to-strip-planned-parenthood-of-federal-funding-could-save-hundreds-of-millions-of-dollars.html /biggovernment/2017-01-13-plans-to-strip-planned-parenthood-of-federal-funding-could-save-hundreds-of-millions-of-dollars.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-13-plans-to-strip-planned-parenthood-of-federal-funding-could-save-hundreds-of-millions-of-dollars.html As part of the Republican majority’s plans to take out Obamacare and replace it with a free-market plan, taxpayers horrified by past actions of high-ranking officials at Planned Parenthood in selling baby body parts for profit will be happy that the organization’s taxpayer funding will dry up.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the GOP plan is to strip hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding by adding it to legislation repealing much of President Obama’s signature legislation.

The Speaker said that cutting off taxpayer funding to the organization will be part of a “reconciliation” bill that also repeals the core elements of Obamacare, The Hill reported.

“Planned Parenthood legislation will be in our reconciliation bill,” said Ryan in recent days, without providing more details beyond that.

While insane Leftists like President Obama and most of his Cabinet, along with the vast majority of Democrats in Congress and some “centrist” Republicans, are dead set on providing abortions on demand, and at any point during pregnancy, pro-life and religious organizations have long opposed providing taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood.

“If the same liberals that champion Planned Parenthood really had any faith in the ‘healthcare’ they claim is provided through the organization, then they would have no problem dipping into their own, private funds, in order to keep the lights on in their local abortion mills,” RedState noted.

“As it is with liberals, however, they’re rather insistent that the public be compelled to fund their irresponsible lifestyles.” (RELATED: Find more news about sick, twisted agendas at Twisted.news)

To be sure, it is against federal law to use taxpayer funding to pay for abortions, except in certain cases to save the life of the mother. This is known in congressional circles as the “Hyde Amendment,” for the late Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., which was signed into law in 1976. But when an organization is given $500 million a year in taxpayer funding to pay for infrastructure—salaries, building rent, utilities—it is a backdoor way of funding abortion, because actual abortion funds from other sources don’t have to be used for those expenses.

Nevertheless, Democrats even want this minor protection repealed, even though, as The Federalist reported, it has saved millions of very young lives. It’s just the latest effort in the Left’s war against the unborn and children.

Already Democrats led by Obama have begun criticizing and even mocking Republican repeal efforts. In recent days the president stepped out of his Ivory Tower and made a rare visit to Capitol Hill, where he huddled with congressional Democrats to strategize how to save a law that has become completely un-affordable for tens of millions of Americans, while reducing health access, insurance choices and other options for nearly everyone.

He was parried by Vice President-elect Mike Pence, former governor of Indiana, who was also on Capitol Hill meeting with Republican members to strategize a way forward in getting the law gutted, at a minimum, and replaced with a better plan as is the goal.

“It was a promise made on the campaign trail,” Pence said at a press conference after meeting with House Republicans. “The first order of business is to repeal and replace Obamacare … People voted for a better health care system, and we owe them that.”

“It will be a legislative and executive action agenda to assure an orderly transition to something better,” Pence added.

As for Planned Parenthood, it’s federal funding should have been cut with President Obama’s blessing after the Center for American Progress—in an undercover investigation—released a series of damning videos depicting, among other things, high-ranking officials with the organization discussing harvesting and selling of aborted fetal tissue and body parts.

Many of those discussions, between Planned Parenthood officials and CMP investigators posing as buyers for a phony research firm, were made casually over dinner and wine.

In retaliation, Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit against CMP, which a federal judge in California allowed to proceed to the discovery phase in October.

Californian Senator Richard Pan pushing to outlaw parental rights in all medical decisions /biggovernment/2017-01-12-californian-senator-richard-pan-pushing-to-outlaw-parental-rights-in-all-medical-decisions.html /biggovernment/2017-01-12-californian-senator-richard-pan-pushing-to-outlaw-parental-rights-in-all-medical-decisions.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-12-californian-senator-richard-pan-pushing-to-outlaw-parental-rights-in-all-medical-decisions.html California is no stranger to controversy. In February of 2016, Natural News reported on The Golden State’s highly debatable approach to enforcing vaccination. California’s strict mandatory vaccination laws have been a subject of contention for quite some time now, and it seems that the state is only seeking to grow its power over parents and families.

A new bill, SB-18, has been introduced by Senator Richard Pan, seeking to give the government the right to seize children from their parents if they are making medical decisions that the state feels are “not in the child’s best interests.” (RELATED: Read more news about evil bureaucrats at Evil.news)

Dr. Pan, of course, was also behind the state’s current mandatory vaccination bill, SB-277. When taking both bills into consideration, one cannot help but wonder if they will be targeting parents who have unvaccinated children, or perhaps those who homeschool their kids. One thing is clear: The state of California is all but trying to outlaw dissent.

SB-18 is still in its early stages and will not be enacted until 2022, if it somehow manages to pass. While that may seem far off in the future, it is only a few short years away.

One of the more puzzling aspects of SB-18 is its blatant acknowledgement of existing laws to protect children. The bill itself acknowledges that there are already laws to provide for the “care and welfare of children and youth in various contexts, including, but not limited to, child welfare services, foster care, health care, nutrition, homeless assistance, and education.”

In what some might call rather unsettling language, the bill declares that the state of California will be seeking to “achieve specified goals to create an optimal environment” for the children’s “healthy development.”

Critics say that the language of the bill is really what is most concerning. Under the guise of doing what is best for the child, Section 1(a) of Pan’s bill outlines a seven-point list of rights children ought to have:

(1) The right to parents, guardians, or caregivers who act in their best interest.
(2) The right to form healthy attachments with adults responsible for their care and well-being.
(3) The right to live in a safe and healthy environment.
(4) The right to social and emotional well-being.
(5) The right to opportunities to attain optimal cognitive, physical, and social development.
(6) The right to appropriate, quality education and life skills leading to self-sufficiency in adulthood.
(7) The right to appropriate, quality health care.

This list may seem innocuous, but it is also incredibly vague. These are all basic things that children should indeed have. The problem is that the state is also seeking to grant itself the right to determine what does and does not meet its own arbitrary standards.

The bill is also seeking “to establish a comprehensive framework that governs the rights of all children and youth in California, outlines the research-based essential needs of California’s children, and establishes standards relating to the health, safety, well-being, early childhood and educational opportunities, and familial supports necessary for all children to succeed.”

The vagueness of this bill is truly what is most concerning, as it almost doesn’t really say anything at all – leaving plenty of room to the imagination of whoever is deigned to enforce it. For example, the rights to “appropriate, quality education” and “social development” could be said to be infringed upon by homeschooling your child. Not vaccinating your kid, of course, is also likely to be considered a violation of several of these rights. (Read more about government assaults on your liberty at Liberty.news)

As Modern Alternative Health notes, the bill could also pave the way for more new laws, programs, taxes and other such government tripe.

Allowing a small group of people to decide what is “best” for the rest of population is never a good idea – especially when they all but give themselves carte blanche to do so. One must also wonder, how will any independent thought survive under such circumstances?

Why it’s time to eliminate the BLM forever… and return millions of acres to the people /biggovernment/2017-01-12-why-its-time-to-eliminate-the-blm-forever-and-return-millions-of-acres-to-the-people.html /biggovernment/2017-01-12-why-its-time-to-eliminate-the-blm-forever-and-return-millions-of-acres-to-the-people.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-12-why-its-time-to-eliminate-the-blm-forever-and-return-millions-of-acres-to-the-people.html In recent days, as he rushes to ‘cement his legacy’ before he leaves office Jan. 20, President Obama has signed a rash of executive orders and initiated several executive actions. Among them: Grabbing more state property and designating it federally-protected lands.

The most recent grab, as reported by The National Sentinel, involved designating 1.6 million acres of land in Nevada and Utah new national monuments, to prevent them from being developed commercially.

These come on top of earlier land grabs by Obama—the most ever for a president, using the century-old Antiquities Act—which now total enough to form the state of Texas three times over.

As reported by The Hill, reversing Obama’s latest (and previous) land grabs may prove difficult, legally, with Christy Goldfuss, managing director of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, telling the newspaper that the Antiquities Act does not contain any language specifically allowing a follow-on president to undo federal land designations made by previous presidents. (RELATED: See more news on Obama’s treason against America at Treason.news)

Environmental groups also say such designations can’t be undone, though some Republican lawmakers have disagreed. And therein lies the rub.

Obama, throughout his tenure, pushed the limits of his executive powers. There’s no reason to expect that Trump, who is not beholden to any special interests but only to the American people, won’t do the same thing in an attempt to devolve power from Washington and its massive bureaucracy.

In fact, Obama’s impetus for stealing land from states was to eliminate any chance they could develop it economically. Given Donald Trump’s campaign motto, “Make America Great Again,” combined with his business acumen, that is motivation enough for the president-elect to find ways to reverse as much of the damage Obama has done as possible: To provide new opportunities for American workers while strengthening our economy and security.

Those who don’t think Trump has a prayer of reversing the Obama land grabs are forgetting one key element: Trump is used to getting things done, and he has the pieces in place—GOP majorities in the House and Senate—to be successful. That could include reforming land-grab and land use laws in a way that would make the Bureau of Land Management dormant or, better still, extinct:

* Trump and the GOP Congress could amend the Antiquities Act, giving presidents specific authority to designate or repeal federal land designations, and make the repeal authority retroactive;

* The Legislative and Executive Branches could pass legislation defunding the BLM and its land-management activities, rendering the agency irrelevant;

* Congress could pass legislation granting states new authority to manage federally designated land as they see fit, including developing natural resources on said land;

* The Trump administration could go to court and test the parameters of the current Antiquities Act after President Trump reverses Obama’s land grabs via his own executive orders.

There are a number of things Congress and President Trump could do—and should do—to render the BLM unnecessary and return the land to the people. Not only would returning land to states save billions of dollars in annual management costs for taxpayers, but the opportunities being able to utilize and develop those lands will provide are limitless.

Then again, states could opt to leave those lands alone—to leave them as natural preserves, for habitat and wildlife to enjoy instead.

They should have the choice, is the thing; outside of building post offices, highways, military bases and other necessary infrastructure, the federal government should not be designating land as “preserves” without state approval, at a minimum.

The Trump administration, along with Congress, can and should make changes to current law that would give local governments more control over how best to use the land surrounding them.

New quietly approved rule allows companies like McDonald’s to sponsor and advertise in national parks /biggovernment/2017-01-12-new-quietly-approved-rule-allows-companies-like-mcdonalds-to-sponser-and-advertise-in-national-parks.html /biggovernment/2017-01-12-new-quietly-approved-rule-allows-companies-like-mcdonalds-to-sponser-and-advertise-in-national-parks.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-12-new-quietly-approved-rule-allows-companies-like-mcdonalds-to-sponser-and-advertise-in-national-parks.html When seeking an escape from the bustle of daily life and the marketing messages that bombard us everywhere we go. from our kids’ TV shows to the local grocery store, many of us head to the great outdoors. Out in nature with an abundance of fresh air and clean water, and surrounded by plenty of greenery, we relish the chance to unwind and unplug.

If your idea of “getting away from it all” entails visiting a national park, however, you might soon find that it is less of an escape from corporate America than it once was. While you were busy enjoying the holidays with your family and friends, a controversial set of rules was quietly granted approval that will allow advertisements to intrude on the parks’ natural beauty.

Order lifts ban on ads in national parks

The new order signed by National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis on December 28, puts an end to the ban on commercial advertising in national parks and removes restrictions on naming rights. The order, which is known as Order #21 on Donations and Philanthropic Partnerships, expands commercial contracts with private firms and corporate sponsorships. (RELATED: Read more examples of total stupidity at Stupid.news)

The National Park Service controls 412 parks, monuments, recreational areas and battlefields that together cover 84 million acres of land, which means an influx of new marketing opportunities will be opened up to corporate sponsors. The National Park Service recently said it was launching a fundraising campaign to the tune of $350 million; the federal budget set aside nearly $3 billion for the agency in 2016.

Public outcry

More than 200,000 people have signed a petition against the controversial move. Kristen Strader, the coordinator of the advocacy group, Public Citizen, who organized a campaign against these proposed reforms, said the move was “disgraceful.” In addition to the petition, hundreds of individuals have lodged official objections with the National Park Service.

Public Citizen joined forces with the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood to publish public comments on the proposal after the Parks Service failed to do so. They say that 78 percent of commenters were opposed to the policy.

“Now that this policy has been finalized, park visitors soon could be greeted with various forms of advertisements, like a sign reading ‘brought to you by McDonald’s’ within a new visitor’s center at Yosemite, or ‘Budweiser’ in script on a park bench at Acadia,” Strader said.

The park service is now trying to allay people’s fears by implying that the public does not fully understand the order. While it will allow donors to be recognized by the parks with labels on some items, corporations and other types of sponsors will not be allowed to rename parks. They also point out that logos and ad language will not be allowed. They liken these provisions to those found in hospitals, museums and universities whereby certain rooms might be temporarily renamed in recognition of a donor that supported renovations, for example. The NPS director must approve of all signage.

Despite these assurances, opponents insist that the move is opening up our national parks to a previously unseen amount of commercial influence, and many fear this is only the beginning. This approach embodies much of what is wrong with America these days. Commercialization already reaches us everywhere we go, and the value of nature is being increasingly marginalized in favor of the all-important bottom line. Whether it’s the push by Big Pharma to make people think their toxic prescriptions are superior to the healing plants provided by the earth, or the ongoing global deforestation to clear land for other money-making endeavors, governments around the world are turning a blind eye to corporate tactics that destroy our planet’s natural resources and beauty.

Trump takes aim at vaccines, names Robert F. Kennedy Jr. head of new commission to expose dangers of mercury preservative (Thimerosal) /biggovernment/2017-01-11-trump-takes-aim-vaccines-robert-f-kennedy-jr-head-of-commission-expose-dangers-of-mercury-preservative-thimerosal.html /biggovernment/2017-01-11-trump-takes-aim-vaccines-robert-f-kennedy-jr-head-of-commission-expose-dangers-of-mercury-preservative-thimerosal.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-11-trump-takes-aim-vaccines-robert-f-kennedy-jr-head-of-commission-expose-dangers-of-mercury-preservative-thimerosal.html After taking aim at Big Pharma’s monopoly profits earlier today, President-elect Donald Trump is going right for the throat of the corrupt, criminally run vaccine industry by naming Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as head of a new commission to study “vaccine safety.”

This is the beginning of the implosion of the decades-long vaccine cover-up conspiracy run by the CDC, FDA, a corrupt federal government, criminally-run vaccine manufacturers and a complicit “fakestream media” that prints whatever the CDC tells them to print. (See detailed infographic below that outlines the many players in this massive criminal conspiracy that targets children.)

Here, I’m give you an overview of RFK and his position on vaccines, Thimerosal, neurotoxicity and the latest established science. First, however, review these indisputable facts about vaccines as background. (RELATED: Stay informed on the truth about vaccines at Vaccines.news)

Eleven indisputable facts about vaccines that the lying “fakestream media” won’t tell you

Indisputable Fact #1) Vaccines given to children in the United States still contain mercury (Thimerosal), a potent neurotoxin. Anyone who argues that Thimerosal is not a neurotoxin may have already been brain damaged by it. (The science is overwhelming and irrefutable.)

Indisputable Fact #2) All forms of mercury are neurotoxic. There is no such thing as “safe” mercury that can be injected into children.

Indisputable Fact #3) ANY amount of mercury injected into a child is unsafe. No “safe” quantity of mercury for injection into a child has ever been established by any credible scientific body, especially not the IoM whose “studies” all suffer from extreme conflicts of interest.

Indisputable Fact #4) Flu shots given to children in the United States still contain over 50,000 ppb mercury (I personally tested flu shot vaccines in my internationally accredited laboratory, which is ISO-17025 accredited). This concentration of mercury is over 25,000 times the EPA limit of mercury in drinking water.

Indisputable Fact #5) Mercury, in the form of Thimerosal, is used as a preservative in multi-dose vaccine vials. If vaccines were offered solely in single-dose form, no mercury would be needed whatsoever. There is no technical or medical reason why mercury cannot be removed from all vaccines, in other words. (Thimerosal doesn’t even work very well as a preservative, it turns out.)

Indisputable Fact #6) The vaccine industry currently enjoys blanket legal immunity from all claims of defective products or mercury damage, a condition that has completely eliminated any incentive for vaccine product safety or quality control. No child damaged by vaccines has any right to legal due process in America today, and the secretive “vaccine court” has apparently been granted higher legal authority than the U.S. Supreme Court.

Indisputable Fact #7) According to the CDC, vaccines are still deliberately formulated with numerous neurotoxic chemicals, including aluminum, MSG, formaldehyde and mercury.

Indisputable Fact #8) Vaccine manufacturers such as GlaxoSmithKline have been repeatedly found guilty of criminal bribery and fraud. No pharma CEOs are ever arrested, however. Instead, they pay huge fines and continue on with “business as usual.”

Indisputable Fact #9) Virologists who worked for Merck filed a False Claims Act with the federal government, swearing that they were ordered by Merck management to falsify vaccine efficacy results in order to trick the FDA into approving vaccines that didn’t work. They also told the government they believed that Merck’s “fake vaccines” were contributing to the spread of infectious disease.

Indisputable Fact #10) A top CDC scientist named Dr. William Thompson publicly and openly admitted to taking part in massive scientific fraud to hide statistical links between vaccines and autism in African-American boys. The entire fakestream media — now known to be chronic liars and pushers of “fake news” — blacklisted the story, and most American have never heard the truth about the CDC’s criminal science fraud.

Indisputable Fact #11) The FDA has long possessed documentation linking vaccines to autism. The corrupt agency has gone to great lengths to bury this evidence in order to protect the profits and false science narratives of the vaccine industry.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s view on vaccines, mercury and Thimerosal

RFK is extremely well informed about the dangers of mercury (Thimerosal) in vaccines. To the vaccine industry, he is called a “skeptic,” which means he’s intelligent and informed about vaccines. (Nearly everyone inside the vaccine industry and those in the media reporting on vaccines are nothing more than medical prostitutes who exercise no rational skepticism whatsoever.)

In his book, RFK writes:

Indeed, the evidence of Thimerosal’s neurotoxicity is so overwhelming and the lack of any safety data so complete that anyone who is willing to read science and who believes in the capacity for scientific methods to determine empirical truths must conclude that Thimerosal causes serious brain damage.

Notably, RFK is not “anti-vaccine” as he is sometimes falsely accused. He is on the record countless times affirming his belief in the medical value of targeted immunizations as a strategy for infectious disease prevention. His disagreement with the vaccine industry rests primarily with the use of toxic mercury in vaccines. Again, from his book:

People who advocate for safer vaccines should not be marginalized or denounced as anti-vaccine. I am pro-vaccine. I had all six of my children vaccinated. I believe that vaccines have saved the lives of hundreds of millions of humans over the past century and that broad vaccine coverage is critical to public health. But I want our vaccines to be as safe as possible.

In essence, RFK shares the view of many others who want “clean” or “green” vaccines. They are not attempting to eliminate vaccines altogether. In many ways, I share many of RFK’s views, and I’m the author of “A Blueprint for Safer Vaccines,” which argues many of the same points.

RFK is the author of “Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak: The Evidence Supporting the Immediate Removal of Mercury — a Known Neurotoxin — from Vaccines.” It’s a highly recommended read and it’s packed full of reliable scientific citations that spell out the clear evidence of harm caused by Thimerosal in vaccines. I’ve included some key excerpts from his book in a separate, related article. A particularly cognizant passage from his book sums up its basic premise:

For many years, I’ve been puzzled by the bland and apparently baseless insistence by public health regulators and members of the press that it is safe to inject mercury—one of the world’s most neurotoxic elements—into young children and pregnant women. Over the past three years, I’ve engaged a crack team of respected scientific researchers to review the voluminous peer-reviewed literature related to Thimerosal and human health. Not surprisingly, that team was unable to find even a single publication that credibly demonstrates Thimerosal’s safety. Meanwhile, reams of toxicological, pharmacological, epidemiological, animal, and human studies have implicated Thimerosal in a range of neurological disorders. In fact, there is a virtually unanimous scientific consensus among the hundreds of research scientists who have published peer-reviewed articles in the field that Thimerosal is immensely toxic to brain tissue and should not be injected into children.

However, many informed vaccine skeptics like myself also believe that there are far too many vaccines given all at once… and many vaccines are given far too early in a child’s development, greatly increasing the risk of harm to the child while achieving no time advantage whatsoever.

My own views on vaccines also extend into exposing the rampant scientific fraud behind vaccines, something I am uniquely qualified to attest to because of my position as laboratory science director of an ISO-accredited mass spec analysis laboratory (CWClabs.com). Few vaccine skeptics are also accredited scientists or published scientific authors (I’m the author of Food Forensics, a laboratory science book that achieved the No. 1 bestselling science book on Amazon.com).

In summary, I agree with RFK’s concerns about mercury in vaccines, but my own concerns go even further. RFK’s skepticism, in other words, is a subset of my own skepticism about vaccines, vaccine marketing, vaccine science fraud, vaccine contamination, vaccine scare tactics, vaccine false flag operations and much more.

RFK to chair a new commission that Trump will use to make vaccines less toxic

The upshot of all this is that RFK will head a new commission whose ultimate goal is to eliminate mercury from all vaccines. Knowing what I know about RFK, both on and off the record, I’m confident this is the top goal of the new commission.

And it’s a worthy goal. I share that goal as a start. It’s an important step in the right direction. If President Trump is truly dedicated to this mission, it stands a very good chance of succeeding, after which the vaccine industry will then claim all vaccines are “now perfectly safe across the board” because the mercury has been removed. It will be a false claim, of course, but at least it moves the goalposts.

As we all know very well, mercury isn’t the only thing that’s toxic about vaccines. HPV vaccines, for example, are extremely dangerous for other reasons unrelated to mercury toxicity. Vaccines are only quite frequently contaminated with cancer causing viruses. For example, the CDC openly admitted that as many as 98 million Americans were exposed to the cancer causing SV40 virus which was “accidentally” manufactured into polio vaccines. It is no coincidence, of course, that the cancer industry remains a multi-billion dollar profit center for the same drug companies that also manufactured the contaminated vaccines.

The real history of vaccines, if you care to dig a little deeper, is rife with criminality, quackery, corruption, medical tyranny and the most outrageous medical propaganda ever catapulted into the minds of the American people.

Mandatory vaccines are a violation of medical ethics, parental choice and human rights

In addition, there are serious medical ethics and human rights issues surrounding mandatory vaccination policies such as California’s SB 277. According to the American Medical Association, mandatory vaccines are gross violation of medical ethics.

By requiring a medical intervention that has also been granted legal immunity via an act of Congress, mandatory vaccines violate both the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution. Section 1 of Amendment XIV clearly states:

No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Yet mandatory vaccines that require medical intervention with a non-zero risk while denying citizens due process to seek damages for the toxic effects caused by such medical interventions is a clear and gross violation of the Fourteenth Amendment.

This is why the Trump administration’s pursuit of vaccine safety must encompass three key areas described below. (RELATED: Stay up to date on President Trump’s victories at Trump.news)

How President Trump and RFK may restore vaccine safety, medical choice and basic human rights across America

Step #1) Outlaw toxic additives in all vaccines. This includes mercury but must also include various chemical adjuvants such as squalene.

Step #2) Protect medical choice. No parent should be forced to inject her child with a toxic substance that imparts a non-zero risk of serious, lifelong neurological damage. California’s SB 277 must be overturned and outlawed. That law is truly Kafkaesque in its intentions and enforcement.

Step #3) Eliminate blanket legal immunity for vaccine manufacturers. Why should vaccine manufacturers enjoy absolute legal immunity when they are making defective products that are being forced onto citizens against their will? This situation is absurd and intolerable in any free or just society.

In effect, current vaccines laws at both the state and federal level have transformed America into a medical police state. When parents are deprived of their medical choice, and when citizens are denied due process, and when known faulty and dangerous products are forced upon children across the nation, we can no longer call it “medicine” at all. It is a medical cartel that invokes the coercion of the state to enforce compliance with its desired product sales goals.

Watch to see the vicious media attacks aimed at Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (and all who want to protect children from toxic mercury)

I believe that RFK can play a tremendously important role in this urgent effort to protect America’s children from the criminals and quacks running the corrupt vaccine industry. (Seriously, one vaccine researcher absconded with millions of CDC dollars and is still wanted by the FBI as an international fugitive.)

Because RFK can bring real level-headedness to this issue, you can fully expect the mainstream media to wage a massive character assassination campaign against him (just like they often against me). Before long, you’ll probably hear absurd reports on CNN that claim RFK has unprotected intercourse with goats while wearing baby bibs (or something similarly hilarious). The vaccine industry will scream and pout and roll out an endless parade of corrupt, paid-off “scientists” in the spirit of Big Tobacco’s decades-long obfuscation of real science. The CDC and FDA will insist that mercury is harmless, vaccines hurt no one, and parents should never have a choice when it comes to “good medicine” that only benefits society.

Yet in the end, the era of toxic vaccines will eventually crumble. Perhaps not this year, or next year or even during the Trump administration at all. But sooner or later, the weight of the evidence linking vaccines to autism and other neurological defects in children will be so overwhelming that even the vaccine pushing “medical child molesters” won’t be able to stop the avalanche of public outrage.

Vaccines, as administered, marketed and approved today, are the most devastating criminal fraud in the history of medicine.

Obama has placed more land and water under federal control than any other president in history /biggovernment/2017-01-11-obama-has-placed-more-land-and-water-under-federal-control-than-any-other-president-in-history.html /biggovernment/2017-01-11-obama-has-placed-more-land-and-water-under-federal-control-than-any-other-president-in-history.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-11-obama-has-placed-more-land-and-water-under-federal-control-than-any-other-president-in-history.html In what appears to be a thinly-veiled slap in the face to President-Elect Donald Trump, who’s made it clear that he supports expanded domestic energy production, outgoing President Barack Obama has once again decided to seize land in the United States and place it under the jurisdiction of the federal government, effectively rendering it off-limits to any and all human activity.

Taking advantage of a little-known law passed by former President Theodore Roosevelt back in 1906, Obama has officially declared 1.5 million acres of U.S. land, most of which is located in the state of Utah, as “national monuments.” By doing this, said land will be closed of to any sort of human expansion, including for development, farming, or energy use.

Reports indicate that the 1.3 million acres of land in Utah has been declared as the “Bears Ears Monument” in honor of Native American tribes and other conservationist groups that claim it to be sacred. Obama has also claimed another 300,000 acres of land in Clark County, Nevada, declaring it to be the “Gold Butte National Monument” for many of the same reasons.

Despite bipartisan opposition from Utah’s state legislature, which vehemently opposed this unprecedented land grab, Obama went through it anyway, presumably to stifle potential efforts by the incoming administration to utilize these geographical locales for domestic energy production — even when doing so would help decrease U.S. dependence on foreign oil and other forms of energy.

“It’s one of the biggest land grabs in the history of the United States, and it was done as this midnight monument in the waning hours of the Obama administration,” said Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz during a recent interview with Fox News.

Will a Trump administration be able to restore control of land back to states? House Republicans are hopeful

There have been many instances during Obama’s eight years in the Oval Office when the controversial president decided to seize land for federal purposes. Since his first inauguration, Obama has collectively seized more than half a billion acres of land and water in the federal interest, utilizing the so-called “Antiquities Act of 1906,” the law that allowed him to do so, a whopping 29 times.

In 2016 alone, Obama claimed more than 260 million acres as federally-protected space, including a 100-million-acre piece of land in Alaska that’s roughly equivalent in size to the entire state of New Mexico. Obama has also utilized the Antiquities Act of 1906 more times than any other president since it first became law, his executive land grabs accounting for some 20 percent of all such land grabs combined.

“In the eight years he’s been in office, President Obama has seized more than 553 million acres of land and water (roughly 865,000 square miles) and placed it under federal ownership and control — enough square mileage to cover the entire state of Texas more than three times over,” writes Brittany Hughes for MRCTV.com.

“In fact, the self-aggrandizing conservationist-in-chief has placed more land and coastal areas under federal control than any other president in history, shutting off millions of miles of land to energy production or human settlement, along with shifting it outside the scope of local and state jurisdictions.”

House Republicans are already moving forward with trying to reverse these land grabs and restore control of the seized lands back to state and local jurisdictions. But this may not be possible, some reports indicate, as such reversals may not be lawful. At the same time, Obama’s use of the Antiquities Act of 1906 to seize land for non-emergency political purposes may, in and of itself, not have been lawful in the first place.

Draining the Pharma swamp: Donald Trump announces plan to hammer Big Pharma’s monopoly profits by requiring competitive bidding for government drug purchase contracts /biggovernment/2017-01-11-donald-trump-announces-plan-to-attack-big-pharma-monopoly-profits-by-requiring-competitive-bidding-government-drug-purchases.html /biggovernment/2017-01-11-donald-trump-announces-plan-to-attack-big-pharma-monopoly-profits-by-requiring-competitive-bidding-government-drug-purchases.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-11-donald-trump-announces-plan-to-attack-big-pharma-monopoly-profits-by-requiring-competitive-bidding-government-drug-purchases.html In a welcome announcement during a press conference today, President-elect Donald Trump announced a plan to shatter the monopolistic pricing of Big Pharma that has been draining literally trillions of dollars from the government for the past two decades.

“Pharma has a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power,” said Trump. “There’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest drug buyer in the world, and we’re going to start bidding. We’re going to start saving billions of dollars on drugs.” (RELATED: See more coverage of President Trump at Trump.news)

Trump is referencing the fact that all the former Presidents in recent memory — Clinton, Bush and Obama — have maintained what can only be called a “monopoly pricing drug cartel” in the United States, where the U.S. government pays outrageously high prices for prescription medications purchased via Medicare, federal health coverage plans and VA Hospital operations. The utter lack of competitive pricing has been kept in place by an army of pharma lobbyists “bribing” complicit lawmakers and bureaucrats to keep high prices in place and eliminate competitive bidding for prescription medication purchase contracts. (RELATED: See daily coverage of medicine news at Medicine.news)

$324.6 billion a year in overpriced prescription medications to appease Big Pharma lobbyists

As a result, the federal government is spending hundreds of billions of dollars on overpriced prescription drugs each year, dolling out a whopping $324.6 billion on prescription drugs in 2015 alone. “Spending on prescription drugs outpaced all other services in 2015,” says a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid report entitled National Health Expenditures: 2015 Highlights.

That same report reveals that U.S. health care spending has now reached $3.2 trillion annually, or nearly $10,000 per person. If this spending isn’t curtailed, it’s going to bankrupt America and will soon hit an astonishing 25% of GDP, meaning 1 out of every 4 dollars generated in the entire U.S. economy will be going to drug companies, cancer treatment centers, hospitals, doctors and medical device manufacturers.

High drug prices weaken U.S. worker competitiveness in global marketplace

Obviously, that rate of expenditure is unsustainable. It also makes U.S. workers far more expensive than workers in overseas regions, harming the economic competitiveness of U.S. companies. In order for U.S. workers to remain competitive, U.S. health care costs need to be drastically reduced… and that means finally forcing drug companies to compete on pricing rather than receiving “full retail” monopoly-priced reimbursements from the federal government.

Making America Great Again, in other words, means stopping the federal government from being ripped off by Big Pharma.

Notably, Hillary Clinton’s campaign accepted millions of dollars from Big Pharma sources, and there’s little question that Clinton, if she had won the election, would have maintained the status quo of monopoly prices. See “Hillary Clinton will not challenge FDA Monopoly” and “If you support Hillary Clinton, you support big pharma and mandatory vaccinations.” (RELATED: Find more news on Hillary Clinton at Clinton.news)

In contrast, Donald Trump is genuinely “draining the swamp” by eliminating waste, fraud and abuse across many sectors of the federal government. Big Pharma just got served: The era of easy profits and a compliant federal government writing unlimited fat checks is now coming to an end.

Every American fed up with unaffordable drug prices, outrageous health insurance premiums and the corruption and influence of lobbyists in Washington D.C. should applaud this announcement by Trump.

Illinois turns hair stylists into snitches; tells them to spy on their customers and report to law enforcement /biggovernment/2017-01-10-illinois-turns-hair-stylists-into-snitches-tells-them-to-spy-on-their-customers-and-report-to-law-enforcement.html /biggovernment/2017-01-10-illinois-turns-hair-stylists-into-snitches-tells-them-to-spy-on-their-customers-and-report-to-law-enforcement.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-10-illinois-turns-hair-stylists-into-snitches-tells-them-to-spy-on-their-customers-and-report-to-law-enforcement.html Service professionals working various positions in Illinois will now be required to complete domestic abuse prevention training as part of their licensing requirements. The new law, which just went into effect on Sunday, impacts hair stylists, barbers, cosmetologists, estheticians, hair braiders and nail technicians. Although workers won’t be required to report violence, they are protected from any liability under the law. Some believe this is a deliberate effort to take advantage of the intimate relations between the service professionals and their clients.

The required training aims to teach beauty professionals how to spot signs of abuse. The new law could prove to be a great aid for rescuing sex trafficking victims from their captors, but that appears to be the only potential upside. The Department of Financial and Professional Regulation is a federally run department which will be enforcing the new state law, but the Department of Homeland Security runs the Illinois Department of Human Services, which handles domestic abuse in the state.

The trusted relationships between beauty workers and their clients are now questionable in Illinois. State Rep. Fran Hurley believes that the “openness and freeness” of those relations puts the employees in position to see something that just isn’t quite right. It’s easy to give away information that should be kept private when you are enjoying a conversation with someone you trust. Illinois is ready to take advantage of that information with the some 88,000 beauty professionals intended to complete the training program within the next two years.

Some clients do have a tendency to open up about the on goings of their personal lives. Sometimes they reveal so much information that they are too embarrassed to go back again. While the hour-long training sessions won’t make any barbers an instant expert in domestic abuse, it does help raise awareness in two separate areas.

Anything you say can and will be used against you

No, you are not being read your Miranda rights, but that statement applies just about everywhere. Everything you say and do is subject to scrutiny. The more information you give away, the more opportunities exist for unforeseen circumstances to arise, which may impact you negatively. We live in a world where people will try to bring you down. You can read the news on any given day and you will find stories pertaining to job loss and fallout — because somebody decided to open their mouth.

Water crisis: Obama’s EPA to approve dramatic increase in limits on radiation exposure allowable in public drinking water /biggovernment/2017-01-10-water-crisis-on-obamas-final-day-epa-plans-for-huge-spike-in-radiation-exposure-allowed-in-public-drinking-water.html /biggovernment/2017-01-10-water-crisis-on-obamas-final-day-epa-plans-for-huge-spike-in-radiation-exposure-allowed-in-public-drinking-water.html#respond Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://162.244.66.231/biggovernment/2017-01-10-water-crisis-on-obamas-final-day-epa-plans-for-huge-spike-in-radiation-exposure-allowed-in-public-drinking-water.html As one of its closing acts before leaving the stage, the Obama administration plans to relax EPA guidelines regarding maximum allowable radiation levels in the nation’s drinking water, increasing them to levels thousands of times above current legal limits.

A federal lawsuit filed by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) led to the release of documents confirming details of the planned “Protective Action Guides” (PAGs) to be implemented, which include the new radically higher maximum allowable radiation levels.

PEER has accused the EPA of jeopardizing public health in favor of public relations.

From a PEER press release dated December 22, 2016:

“Following Japan’s Fukushima meltdown in 2011, EPA’s claims that no radioactivity could reach the U.S. at levels of concern were contradicted by its own rainwater measurements showing contamination from Fukushima throughout the U.S. well above Safe Drinking Water Act limits. In reaction, EPA prepared new limits 1000s of times higher than even the Fukushima rainwater because ‘EPA experienced major difficulties conveying to the public that the detected levels…were not of immediate concern for public health.’”

EPA kept details of new guidelines a secret

Although the EPA released its proposed PAGs for public comment, it conveniently neglected to include “all but four of the 110 radionuclides covered, and refused to reveal how much they were above Safe Drinking Water Act limits.”

Only after the PEER lawsuit forced the EPA to release the pertinent documents did it become clear how much the levels were to be increased. Even so, more than 60,000 people had already left comments in opposition of the proposed guidelines on the agency’s website.

Current drinking water radiation limits are defined under the Safe Drinking Water Act, established in the 1970s.

The documents obtained by PEER revealed that the EPA plans to raise maximum allowable limits of iodine-131, cobalt-60 and calcium-45 to more than 10,000 times the levels allowed under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Others would be hundreds or thousands of times higher under the new guidelines.

The agency’s justification for withholding the new proposed limits from the public until after the proposal had been adopted was that it wanted to “avoid confusion.”

The EPA deliberately hid the details not only from the public, but also from some of its own staff, according to PEER:

“The documents also reveal that EPA’s radiation division even hid the new concentrations from other divisions of EPA that were critical of the proposal, requiring repeated efforts to get them to even be disclosed internally.”

Even the George W. Bush administration’s attempt to introduce higher limits – a plan that was ultimately withdrawn – was modest in comparison to the levels proposed under the Obama EPA.

On December 1, outgoing EPA administrator Gina McCarthy gave final approval to all of the proposed PAGs – except for the drinking water standards. It’s unclear at this point whether she will actually approve the water section before leaving office, or whether she will leave the issue to the next administration to deal with.

Voice your opposition (before it’s too late)

There appears to be a good chance McCarthy will approve the rest of the PAGs before the changing of the guard, and there is still time to make your opposition to the proposals known.

It’s important to understand that higher allowable radiation limits will take pressure off the nuclear and fracking industries as well, which may be the real motivation for the establishment of the new guidelines – with Fukushima merely serving as an excuse to do so.

“The Dr. Strangelove wing of EPA does not want this information shared with many of its own experts, let alone the public,” said PEER executive director Jeff Ruch. “This is a matter of public health that should be promulgated in broad daylight rather than slimed through in the witching hours of a departing administration.”
