Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. asks why liberals lose their minds and abandon all principles when it comes to the issue of vaccines

Somehow, making medical decisions for oneself is entirely off limits whenever these decisions defy what the rest of the “herd” is expected to comply with – something that vaccine truth advocate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. sees as a major societal problem.

21 June, 2018 by

(Natural News) One of the basic tenets of liberalism, at least in a classical sense, is the idea that government is necessary to protect individual liberty. It’s a doctrine that centers around emancipating the individual from undue subservience to oppressive authoritarian ideals, whether they be cultural, ethnic or otherwise. But when it comes to certain pet issues like vaccines, for instance, many liberals take a completely opposite approach in defiance of personal freedom.

While claiming to champion “tolerance” above all else for things like abortion on demand and unlimited “rights” for members of the LGBT cult, many liberals all but lose their minds when the idea of vaccine choice is brought to the table. Somehow, making medical decisions for oneself is entirely off limits whenever these decisions defy what the rest of the “herd” is expected to comply with – something that…

How you can help protect Medicare and Social Security

The U.S., being Monetarily Sovereign, has the unlimited ability to create its own sovereign currency, the U.S. dollar. The notion that a department of the U.S. government can become insolvent is like saying the mail room of a large, infinitely wealthy corporation can become insolvent — an obvious impossibility unless the corporation were arbitrarily to decide not to pay the mail room’s expenses.

#Monetary Sovereignty - Mitchell

.

It takes only two things to keep people in chains:

The ignorance of the oppressed
And the treachery of their leaders

============================================================================

You endlessly have been told that Medicare and Social Security Trust funds will, in the near future, run short of money unless benefits are decreased or taxes are increased.

In the post, Fake federal trust funds and fake concerns we debunk this false idea. Today, I’ll suggest what you can do to help protect your Medicare and Social Security.

First, as a quick refresher, here are excerpts from a very short article in THE WEEK Magazine, June 22, 2018:t

Nolan Finley: The annual report from the trustees of Social Security and Medicare shows that both programs “have accelerated their race toward the brick wall of insolvency.”

Social Security will spend more money this year than it takes in for the first time since 1983.

Fermented foods

Fermented foods lead to an increase of antibodies, a stronger immune system, regulate the appetite and reduce sugar and refined carb cravings.

The consumption of fermented, probiotic foods has tremendous benefits. The microflora that lives in fermented foods creates a protective environment in the intestines and shields it against disease and infection factors, such as salmonella and E-coli. In fact, your overall health comes from your intestines and probiotic bacteria is the main factor that fights bad bacteria and disease.

To get that healthy dose of bacteria, it is essential to regularly consume top probiotic foods. Fermented foods lead to an increase of antibodies, a stronger immune system, regulate the appetite and reduce sugar and refined carb cravings.

Amazon Shareholders Call On Jeff Bezos To Stop Selling Facial “Rekognition” Software To Police

Quote

By Aaron Kesel | Activist Post

An astounding 20 groups of Amazon shareholders sent its CEO, Jeff Bezos, a letter urging him to stop selling the company’s face recognition software to law enforcement, CNN reported.

The software, called Rekognition, came under greater scrutiny last month when the ACLU published revealing internal documents related to its use by police. Numerous civil rights organizations co-signed a letter demanding Amazon stop assisting government surveillance, and several members of Congress have expressed concerns about the partnerships.

“We are concerned the technology would be used to unfairly and disproportionately target and surveil people of color, immigrants, and civil society organizations,” the shareholders, which reportedly include Social Equity Group and Northwest Coalition for Responsible Investment, wrote. “We are concerned sales may be expanded to foreign governments, including authoritarian regimes.”

Amazon’s Rekognition software can analyze images from all types of sources—images or videos from any police surveillance tool—including CCTV, body cameras, and drones all matched against databases.

This isn’t the first time that Amazon was caught working with law enforcement. Amazon’s fifth transparency report revealed earlier this year that the company provided more customer data to U.S. law enforcement in the first half of last year than in its history with a shocking 1,936 different requests between January and June 2017, ZDNet reported.

Of those 1,936 requests, Amazon complied and replied to 1,200 subpoena requests, 189 search warrants and 76 other court orders – for a whopping 1,465 requests they responded to. That’s 42 percent of all subpoenas, 44 percent of search warrants and 52 percent of other court orders.

That’s an incredible rise from the year prior where Amazon received:

  • 1,618 subpoenas, which the company fully complied with 679 cases.
  • 229 search warrants, which the company fully complied with 100 cases.
  • 89 other court orders, which the company fully complied with 46 cases.

Amazon didn’t state why there was a spike in U.S. government requests during the first half of the year, but for a company that openly has a partnership with the CIA for $600 million for cloud servers, this information should be troubling. The oddest part of this data is the fact that Amazon stated they received no content removal orders, which begs the question what merit were the cases based on if not illegal content?

Amazon has publicly promoted how police have used its face recognition software to identify people of interest to law enforcement. On Amazon’s website, a systems analyst with Oregon’s Washington County explained how Rekognition was fed a database of 300,000 arrest photos to match against faces seen in surveillance images. It’s significant to note that when a person is arrested typically they are put into a database, whether they are convicted of a crime or not.

In May, the ACLU released troubling internal documents, including an email from a Washington County official telling Amazon they were using Rekognition to identify “unconscious or deceased individuals” as well as “possible witnesses.”

The privacy concerns are obvious and growing as the U.S. deploys face recognition in airports and at borders, and even schools are installing cameras which soon could be equipped with facial recognition. Increasingly our rights are decreasing with the help of big corporations like Amazon. Recently, Google saw its employees stop a military contract in a petition after the company was revealed to be involved with helping Project Maven (an artificial intelligence drone initiative.) It’s up to everyone to take a stand wherever and whenever they see injustice taking hold. . .

U.S: The Koch Brothers Are Bankrolling Local Efforts to Kill American Public Transit

While the brothers’ opposition to investment in public transit aligns with their far-right, libertarian ideals, it also dovetails with their financial interests, which benefit from automobiles and highways.

The oil baron billionaires Charles and David Koch are bankrolling astroturf campaigns across the United States to kill investment in public transit, according to a “must-read” investigation published Tuesday by the New York Times.

Vaccine Authoritarians Try To Censor Billboard That Dares Ask, “Do You Know What’s In A Vaccine?”

Why are they so afraid of people asking what’s in vaccines? They probably don’t know what’s in them either — and as long as they remain ignorant, they can try to escape culpability.

Truth To Power

Do you know what’s in vaccines — or perhaps, more importantly, is it “wrong” to ask such a question? LearnTheRisk.org, a non-profit organization founded by an ex-Merck employee, put up a billboard in Perth, Australia, which asked one important question: “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?” It’s a simple question, yet astonishingly few people know the answer to this question.

Image: Vaccine authoritarians try to censor billboard that dares ask, “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?”

In response, the Australian Medical Association has demanded that this thought-provoking billboard be removed. The vaccine propaganda group says that even raising such a simple question is a “public health risk,” “misleading” and “conspiracy theory garbage.”

Demanding transparency in virtually any other arena would not be met with such hostility; in fact, you might even get a gold star for demanding to know what’s in your food or your infant’s baby formula. But when it comes to vaccines, “transparency” is a four-letter word. Indeed, the fact that simply…

Oil traders ready for musical chairs as China tariffs loom

Tariffs on US oil imports will make US oil too expensive in China – so they will shift to importing oil from Russia and Saudi Arabia. China is the world’s biggest oil importer.

NEW YORK (Reuters) ? Oil markets are bracing for a reshuffle of global trade flows as China threatens to impose tit-for-tat tariffs on imports of U.S. energy products, including crude.

China, which has bought an average 330,000 barrels per day (bpd) of U.S. crude oil this year, is threatening to place a 25 percent tariff on various U.S. commodity exports, including crude oil, although it is so far unclear when such a measure would come in place.

The decision came in response to U.S. President Donald Trump saying he was pushing ahead with hefty tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports.

And it triggered an aggressive response by Trump, who on Monday threatened to slap a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion of Chinese goods in addition to the import duties previously announced.

The tariffs could restrict the flow…
