(Natural News)
Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer among men, and it occurs when abnormal cells develop in the prostate. It is a slow-growing disease and men who have it do not usually exhibit any symptoms. However, prostate cancer is an age-dependent disease which means that the risk of developing it increases with age. While genetics plays a role in one’s health, it is still important to understand that diet and lifestyle are both the major key players attributing to one’s health.

Alcohol, for example, has always been believed to increase the risk of prostate cancer among men. However, a new research study disputes this old adage and claims that drinking red wine has protective side-effects and may reduce the overall risk of getting the disease.

Shedding new light into evidence is Shahrokh Shariat, Head of MedUni Vienna’s Department of Urology, who led the international research study of linking wine consumption to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Shariat impugns that moderate wine consumption – approximately one glass a day – does not significantly increases the risk. He further relayed that drinking this particular type of liquor is beneficial to the body for as long as one also takes other health factors into consideration, such as smoking and eating too much sugar or red meat.

Using the data gathered from 17 high-quality studies involving 611,000 patients, cuts off the risk of developing prostate cancer by 12 percent, while consuming white wine increases the risk by 26 percent.

Originally published in Clinical Epidemiology, the study claimed that the difference between the effects of white wine and red wine lies on the resveratrol; a chemical found in the skin of red grapes released during the winemaking process. Resveratrol inhibits cancer cell growth in many cell lines, including cancers of the lung, prostate, colon, breast, and ovaries.

Through several animal studies, it has been concluded that rich sources of polyphenol antioxidants can actually reduce tumor incidence in animal models by interfering with carcinogenesis.

“Indeed, it has already been shown that polyphenols, which are predominantly found in red wine, can have a protective effect in other diseases and other types of cancer,” the lead author said.

Furthermore, it’s been confirmed by the European Food Authority that polyphenol-rich olive oil protects blood lipids from oxidative stress. “Potentially the polyphenols from red wine can be used preventatively.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Mihai Dorin Vartolomei from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Tirgu Mures in Romania said that further studies have to be created to analyze their findings.

Prostate cancer in the U.S.

In the U.S., prostate cancer, alongside skin cancer, remains one of the most common forms of cancer. This year, the American Cancer Society estimates that around 164,690 new cases of the disease will be reported and that the condition will result in at least 29,000 deaths.

Many accounts in the past have been reported where men did not know that they had prostate cancer until it was too late. This makes understanding its symptoms very important.

  • Frequent urges to urinate both day and night
  • Weak flow of urine
  • Difficulty in urinating
  • Urinary retention
  • Difficulty in controlling urges to urinate
  • Pain during urination
  • Pain on the lower abdomen, lower back, hips, or thighs
  • Blood in urine or semen

Trump’s military drops a bomb every 12 minutes, and no one is talking about it

While you argue with the 17-year-old at the movie theater who gave you a small popcorn when you paid for a large, someone is being obliterated in your name. While we sleep and eat and make love and shield our eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in our names.

Once every 12 minutes.

The United States military drops an explosive with a strength you can hardly comprehend once every 12 minutes. And that’s odd, because we’re technically at war with—let me think—zero countries. So that should mean zero bombs are being dropped, right?

Hell no! You’ve made the common mistake of confusing our world with some sort of rational, cogent world in which our military-industrial complex is under control, the music industry is based on merit and talent, Legos have gently rounded edges (so when you step on them barefoot, it doesn’t feel like an armor-piercing bullet just shot straight up your sphincter), and humans are dealing with climate change like adults rather than burying our heads in the sand while trying to convince ourselves that the sand around our heads isn’t getting really, really hot.

You’re thinking of a rational world. We do not live there.

Instead, we live in a world where the Pentagon is completely and utterly out of control. A few weeks ago, I wrote about the $21 trillion (that’s not a typo) that has gone unaccounted for at the Pentagon. But I didn’t get into the number of bombs that ridiculous amount of money buys us. President George W. Bush’s military dropped 70,000 bombs on five countries. But of that outrageous number, only 57 of those bombs really upset the international community.

Because there were 57 strikes in Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen—countries the U.S. was neither at war with nor had ongoing conflicts with. And the world was kind of horrified. There was a lot of talk that went something like, “Wait a second. We’re bombing in countries outside of war zones? Is it possible that’s a slippery slope ending in us just bombing all the goddamn time? (Awkward pause.) … Nah. Whichever president follows Bush will be a normal adult person (with a functional brain stem of some sort) and will therefore stop this madness.”

We were so cute and naive back then, like a kitten when it’s first waking up in the morning.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reported that under President Barack Obama there were “563 strikes, largely by drones, that targeted Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. …”

It’s not just the fact that bombing outside of a war zone is a horrific violation of international law and global norms. It’s also the morally reprehensible targeting of people for pre-crime, which is what we’re doing and what the Tom Cruise movie “Minority Report” warned us about. (Humans are very bad at taking the advice of sci-fi dystopias. If we’d listened to “1984,” we wouldn’t have allowed the existence of the National Security Agency. If we listened to “The Terminator,” we wouldn’t have allowed the existence of drone warfare. And if we’d listened to “The Matrix,” we wouldn’t have allowed the vast majority of humans to get lost in a virtual reality of spectacle and vapid nonsense while the oceans die in a swamp of plastic waste. … But you know, who’s counting?)

There was basically a media blackout while Obama was president. You could count on one hand the number of mainstream media reports on the Pentagon’s daily bombing campaigns under Obama. And even when the media did mention it, the underlying sentiment was, “Yeah, but look at how suave Obama is while he’s OK’ing endless destruction. He’s like the Steve McQueen of aerial death.”

And let’s take a moment to wipe away the idea that our “advanced weaponry” hits only the bad guys. As David DeGraw put it, “According to the C.I.A.’s own documents, the people on the ‘kill list,’ who were targeted for ‘death-by-drone,’ accounted for only 2% of the deaths caused by the drone strikes.”

Two percent. Really, Pentagon? You got a two on the test? You get five points just for spelling your name right.

But those 70,000 bombs dropped by Bush—it was child’s play. DeGraw again: “[Obama] dropped 100,000 bombs in seven countries. He out-bombed Bush by 30,000 bombs and 2 countries.”

You have to admit that’s impressively horrific. That puts Obama in a very elite group of Nobel Peace Prize winners who have killed that many innocent civilians. The reunions are mainly just him and Henry Kissinger wearing little hand-drawn name tags and munching on deviled eggs.

However, we now know that Donald Trump’s administration puts all previous presidents to shame. The Pentagon’s numbers show that during George W. Bush’s eight years he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, which is 8,750 per year. Over the course of Obama’s time in office, his military dropped 34 bombs per day, 12,500 per year. And in Trump’s first year in office, he averaged 121 bombs dropped per day, for an annual total of 44,096.

Trump’s military dropped 44,000 bombs in his first year in office.

He has basically taken the gloves off the Pentagon, taken the leash off an already rabid dog. So the end result is a military that’s behaving like Lil Wayne crossed with Conor McGregor. You look away for one minute, look back, and are like, “What the f*ck did you just do? I was gone for like, a second!”

Under Trump, five bombs are dropped per hour—every hour of every day. That averages out to a bomb every 12 minutes.

And which is more outrageous—the crazy amount of death and destruction we are creating around the world, or the fact that your mainstream corporate media basically NEVER investigates it? They talk about Trump’s flaws. They say he’s a racist, bulbous-headed, self-centered idiot (which is totally accurate)—but they don’t criticize the perpetual Amityville massacre our military perpetrates by dropping a bomb every 12 minutes, most of them killing 98 percent non-targets.

When you have a Department of War with a completely unaccountable budget—as we saw with the $21 trillion—and you have a president with no interest in overseeing how much death the Department of War is responsible for, then you end up dropping so many bombs that the Pentagon has reported we are running out of bombs.

Oh, dear God. If we run out of our bombs, then how will we stop all those innocent civilians from … farming? Think of all the goats that will be allowed to go about their days.

And, as with the $21 trillion, the theme seems to be “unaccountable.”

Journalist Witney Webb wrote in February, “Shockingly, more than 80 percent of those killed have never even been identified and the C.I.A.’s own documents have shown that they are not even aware of who they are killing—avoiding the issue of reporting civilian deaths simply by naming all those in the strike zone as enemy combatants.”

That’s right. We kill only enemy combatants. How do we know they’re enemy combatants? Because they were in our strike zone. How did we know it was a strike zone? Because there were enemy combatants there. How did we find out they were enemy combatants? Because they were in the strike zone. … Want me to keep going, or do you get the point? I have all day.

This is not about Trump, even though he’s a maniac. It’s not about Obama, even though he’s a war criminal. It’s not about Bush, even though he has the intelligence of boiled cabbage. (I haven’t told a Bush joke in about eight years. Felt kind of good. Maybe I’ll get back into that.)

This is about a runaway military-industrial complex that our ruling elite are more than happy to let loose. Almost no one in Congress or the presidency tries to restrain our 121 bombs a day. Almost no one in a mainstream outlet tries to get people to care about this.

Recently, the hashtag #21Trillion for the unaccounted Pentagon money has gained some traction. Let’s get another one started: #121BombsADay.

One every 12 minutes.

Do you know where they’re hitting? Who they’re murdering? Why? One hundred and twenty-one bombs a day rip apart the lives of families a world away—in your name and my name and the name of the kid doling out the wrong size popcorn at the movie theater.

We are a rogue nation with a rogue military and a completely unaccountable ruling elite. The government and military you and I support by being a part of this society are murdering people every 12 minutes, and in response, there’s nothing but a ghostly silence. It is beneath us as a people and a species to give this topic nothing but silence. It is a crime against humanity.

Females Are Outperforming Males On Every Educational Level, And That Has Staggering Implications For The Future Of Our Society

This report originally appeared at our friend The Economic Collapse Blog.

It is an uncomfortable truth that most educators simply do not want to talk about.  Females are dramatically outperforming males on every educational level, and many are wondering what this means for our future.  If men do not feel a strong sense of purpose and meaning, they can get into trouble really quickly.  As I write this article, the vast majority of those that abuse drugs are men, the vast majority of those that commit violent crimes are men, and the vast majority of those that we put into prison are men.  I began researching this article by looking into the fact that the labor participation rate for men has been declining for decades, but our problems run much deeper than that.  Today, so many men feel lost.  Millions of them don’t have a sense of direction, millions of them don’t have anything that really drives or motivates them, and millions of them are deeply depressed and greatly dissatisfied with life.

For a lot of them, it started very early.  As Dr. Michael Thompson told CBS News, all across America girls are outperforming boys at every educational level…

“Girls outperform boys in elementary school, middle school, high school, and college, and graduate school,” says Dr. Michael Thompson, a school psychologist who writes about the academic problems of boys in his book, “Raising Cain.” He says that after decades of special attention, girls are soaring, while boys are stagnating.

“Girls are being told, ‘Go for it, you can do it. Go for it, you can do it.’ They are getting an immense amount of support,” he says. “Boys hear that the way to shine is athletically. And boys get a lot of mixed messages about what it means to be masculine and what it means to be a student. Does being a good student make you a real man? I don’t think so… It is not cool.”

Perhaps one of the big reasons why young males are so drawn to sports is because it allows them to do the sorts of things the come naturally to males.  Sporting events allow young males to engage in battle, to hunt and to conquer.  Yes, it is a simulated environment, but sporting events really do bring out something primal in young boys.

We all have natural tendencies, and it appears that modern forms of schooling are doing a much better job of connecting with females.  In fact, one extremely large study found that girls all over the world are substantially outperforming boys in the classroom

According to a recent study from University of New Brunswick in Canada, girls have been outperforming boys consistently through the years. It is a popular belief that boys perform better in subjects like Math and Science; however, a review of 308 studies involving more than 1.1 million children across the globe has challenged this stereotype. The study looked at data from 1914 to 2011 and the findings suggest that girls do better in school than boys in the classroom regardless of the material.

So it isn’t just in the United States that this is happening.

And it is a trend that does not seem to diminish with age.

Young women are dominating in high schools all over the nation, and at one high school in Massachusetts girls make up 70 to 80 percent of the students in advanced placement classes…

At graduation ceremonies last June at Hanover High School in Massachusetts, it was the ninth year in a row that a girl was on the podium as school valedictorian. Girls also took home nearly all the honors, including the science prize, says principal Peter Badalament.

“[Girls] tend to dominate the landscape academically right now,” he says, even in math and science.

The school’s advanced placement classes, which admit only the most qualified students, are often 70 percent to 80 percent girls. This includes calculus. And in AP biology, there was not a single boy.

I suppose the silver lining for young men is that if they really want to meet more girls they should just work really, really hard to get into those AP classes.

But the truth is that this is no joking matter.  At this point, higher education in the United States is totally dominated by women.  Just check out these numbers

Women earned approximately 57 percent of the bachelor’s degrees awarded by U.S. institutions of higher education in the 2016-2017 academic year, according to data released this week by the National Center for Education Statistics, which is part of the U.S. Department of Education.

That, according to NCES data, makes 2016-2017 the eighteenth straight academic year in which women have earned approximately 57 percent of the bachelor’s degrees awarded by U.S. colleges and universities.

Did you understand what that excerpt was saying?

Women have received about 57 percent of all bachelor’s degrees in this country for 18 years in a row.

Our future doctors, lawyers, politicians and societal leaders come from our pool of college graduates, and the numbers tell us that women are going to be dominating those fields for the foreseeable future.

So what will men be doing?

Well, in recent years more of them have been dropping out of the labor force than ever before.  The following comes from the New York Times

Among women, the share out of the labor force has fallen from 66 percent in 1950 to 43 percent today. That is not surprising in light of changing social norms and the greater career opportunities now open to women.

Men, however, exhibit the opposite long-term trend. In 1950, 14 percent of men were out of the labor force. Today, that figure stands at 31 percent.

For those of you that prefer graphics, here is a chart from the Federal Reserve that shows this staggering decline over the last several decades.  Please note that we are currently at a much lower level than we were at during the last major recession…

If men aren’t working, how are they supporting themselves?

For many, the social safety net provided by the government is an easy answer.  Here is more from the New York Times

One might wonder how these less educated, prime-age men support themselves after leaving the labor force. The social safety net plays a role. In a study for the Mercatus Center of George Mason University, Scott Winship reports that “75 percent of inactive prime-age men are in a household that received some form of government transfer payment.” Mr. Winship believes that government disability benefits in particular are one reason for the lack of interest in work.

For others, living with Mom and Dad for as long as possible is the solution.  Today, a staggering 38.4 percent of all Millennials live with their parents, and that number seems to keep going up with each passing year.

We live during an era of dramatic societal change, and many are concerned about where all of this change is taking us.

Yes, we need a society in which females can thrive, but we also need a society in which males can thrive as well, and right now that simply is not happening.

Michael Snyder is a nationally syndicated writer, media personality and political activist. He is the author of four books including The Beginning Of The End and Living A Life That Really Matters.

What we eat directly translates to how vulnerable we are to disease: Here’s why 1 in every 100 people now suffer from celiac disease


Image: What we eat directly translates to how vulnerable we are to disease: Here’s why 1 in every 100 people now suffer from celiac disease

(Natural News)
There was a time when celiac disease (CD) was known as a rare condition that almost exclusively afflicted individuals of European descent. Today, one out of 100 persons around the world is thought to have the disease. To understand how a supposedly uncommon genetic disorder now afflicts such a considerable percentage of humanity, it’s time to cut to the chase and examine the very factor that triggers its symptoms – wheat.

It’s not a genetic disorder

CD is attributed to the presence of the HLA-DQ susceptibility locus, a point in one’s chromosome where a mutation is likely to occur and result to disease, in chromosome 6. This is taken to explain how the condition is likely to occur among members of the same family.

However, mounting evidence has challenged the very reality of a genetic disorder. Previously, biologists believed that genes were the end-all and be-all of determining how cells behave, including how susceptible one is to disease. Current findings reveal this to be inaccurate.

To understand cellular behavior, it is not enough to look at genes alone. One also has to look at epigenetic factors or those factors that are beyond the control of genes. These could include nutrition and the substances in the environment that the cells are exposed to.

A good example is cystic fibrosis (CF), a supposedly incurable genetic disorder that causes mucus buildup in the lungs, leading to difficulty breathing and frequent respiratory infections. However, a study has shown that curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, can correct the defects of CF, proving that epigenetic factors can rectify even those conditions that are supposedly caused by genetic errors.

In the case of celiac disease, symptoms are triggered by the gluten in wheat. These can include abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, and reduced weight, among others. Sufferers also tend to have anemia because of reduced iron intake.

CD is often seen as an inability to process substances that most people would normally tolerate. But what if it’s the other way around? As in the case of CF, it’s possible that CD, also a genetic disorder, arises not because of errors in one’s genes, but because of an epigenetic factor, specifically, exposure to an item humans shouldn’t eat.

CD, therefore, is not a disease and HLA-DQ is not a genetic error; rather, they are smart adaptations that help keep the body safe from the harmful effects of toxins derived from wheat.

The problem with wheat

A study of human history reveals that wheat and other cereals were originally not part the Homo sapiens‘ diet, with ancient people preferring nutrient-heavy meats and vegetables instead. But over the last few millennia, wheat has become an indelible part of human existence and civilization. Today, it occurs around the world in various forms, including bread, pasta, and even the host consumed during Catholic Mass. This prevalence of wheat in human diet could help explain the sudden surge in the numbers of people with CD.

Over the years, several studies have looked into the different components of wheat. Their findings shed light on why it is not fit for human consumption and why the body rejects it.

Wheat contains the protein gliadin, a component of gluten. A 2007 study revealed that in both sufferers and non-sufferers of CD, exposure to gliadin resulted in an interleukin-15-mediated response, an immune response that occurs when the body detects infected cells.

“The data obtained in this pilot study supports the hypothesis that gluten elicits its harmful effect, throughout an IL15 innate immune response, on all individuals,” the researchers concluded.

Gliadin was also linked to the overproduction of zonulin, resulting in increased gut permeability that may lead to various conditions, including Type 1 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and liver problems.

When not broken down properly, gliadorphin, one of the amino acids and peptides that make up gliadin, can pass through the brain and disrupt brain function, leading to conditions that include ADHD, schizophrenia, and autism. Gliadorphin may also imitate molecules found in certain bacteria, leading the body to initiate an immune response against itself. (Related: Gluten attacks the brain and damages the nervous system.)

Wheat Germ Agglutinin (WGA) is a lectin, a protein that binds with sugar molecules, found in wheat. Studies have shown that it can cause damage to intestinal tissue and may contribute to weight gain and insulin resistance. It may also be linked to kidney cancer.

Finally, the high levels of glutamic and aspartic acids in wheat may be linked to increased risk of various neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and multiple sclerosis. Both of these acids can damage nerve cell receptors and lead to nerve and brain injury.

Here’s What Eating A Banana And An Avocado Every Day Can Do To Your Body

Fruits and vegetables are vital for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They contain vitamins and minerals that keep our body functioning at a high level. So, if you’re familiar with your fruits and vegetables, than you probably know that bananas and avocados both contain potassium and magnesium.

These two fruits are considered powerhouses because of the endless benefits they provide, but it was only recently that scientists have found that bananas and avocados may also prevent a serious health risk from occurring.

To find out what serious health risk can be prevented, continue reading!

The heart is the biggest organ in the body. It keeps us alive and pumps blood throughout our whole body. But when it becomes compromised, scary things can happen, like a heart attack.

Doctors and scientists are constantly researching ways to prevent heart attacks from occurring, and now they believe that consuming bananas and avocados could potentially be added to that list of ways to prevent one.

The research was done at the University of Alabama and can also be found in the journal JCI Insight. What scientists gathered from their research was that if an individual consumes at least one banana or avocado per day, they could increase their chances of protecting their heart from heart disease.

The research team also found that bananas and avocados could also lower the risk of arterial blockages, which often requires a major bypass surgery. Their reason behind their findings is that the potassium found in bananas and avocados actually reduced vascular calcification, which is one of the complications that kidney disease and cardiovascular disease encounter.

In order to gather their findings, the team gave mice different diets that contained low, normal or high levels of potassium.

What they found was that the mice who received the highest level of potassium had substantially more pliable arteries, while those who were given lower amounts had harder arteries.

This also goes the same for humans. When you include foods in your diet that have high levels of potassium and magnesium, it’s natural that these types of symptoms (soft and hard arteries) are alleviated, mainly the stiffness of the arteries.

The reason why stiff arteries are a main concern for doctors is because they can cause the heart to work harder to pump blood through the body. Artery calcification is just one of the many problems a large amount of potassium in your diet can help prevent.

Protecting your arteries can help you prevent serious related conditions such as: heart disease, a stroke, metabolic syndrome, chronic kidney disease, and hypertension.

Now I’ve been using the word calcification a lot, and it is  the buildup of calcium in your tissues, organs and blood vessels. While the calcium builds up, it can stop necessary processes that keep your body working properly.

According to scientists: “Arteriosclerosis is a defect occurring in the artery (blood vessels carrying oxygenated blood) walls. It refers to hardening of the normally flexible walls due to loss of elasticity of the arterial musculature. When young, the arteries are flexible due to the presence of a protein called elastin.”

They also explained that “As age advances, there is loss of this elastin causing thickening of the arterial walls. Atherosclerosis is another condition that refers to the deposition of fat plaques and cholesterol globules within the arteries causing narrowing of the lumen of the arteries.”

Scientists also made reference that vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), also contribute to vascular calcification in arteriosclerosis. They also went on to state that “Arterial stiffness has become an independent predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, representing an important health problem for the nation as a whole.”

I’ve been raving about how bananas and avocados are the world’s super foods, and here is why. Bananas are one of the easiest snacks to carry around. They don’t require refrigeration, high levels of potassium and provide you with large amounts of fiber, which is what gives you energy.

Bananas help balance your sugar level, because they don’t raise your glycemic index. They can help maintain your blood pressure level, and they can also help lower your chances of developing kidney stones because of the high amounts of potassium.

Avocados provide loads of nutrients that positively impact almost every part of your body, but mainly your heart and arteries. They contain fiber, which like bananas, will provide you with energy. They also contain vitamin C, vitamin K and folate, which are all essential ingredients to maintaining a healthy body.

Every Bishop In Chile Resigned Over Sex Scandal. Are We Seeing The Implosion Of The Catholic Church?

  • The Facts:

    Historic meetings between Trump & Kim Jong Un move towards peace talks between the two nations. What’s really going on here is about disrupting the old elite regime.

  • Reflect On:

    Who really holds the power in our world? Are we getting a true picture of what is going on with events like this from the mainstream media? Is the hate for Trump a result of his level of disruption of elite plans?

The first thing we should all consider, and something that should be downright obvious by now, is the fact that our perceptions of events and people are purely programmed into us by the machine that is mainstream media.

When it comes to Donald Trump, historian Richard Dolan put it quite well, saying that: “It is important to understand why Trump was demonized. Sure, his character can make it easy. There is no shortage of narcissistic, sexist, or otherwise intense statements in his repertoire. But I have never, and will never believe, this is why he was demonized. Ultimately, Trump is a disruptor, and his disruption falls squarely against the two key pillars of the American ruling elite’s ideology: neoliberalism and neoconservatism.”

I often wondered how it was possible for so many people to support Obama & Hillary when the same geopolitical agenda continues unchanged for decades, I compare it to a global holocaust, in the Middle East and within many other parts of the world. A powerful group of people, using politics as their tools & politicians as their puppets, is and has been imposing their will on other countries by creating events and then proposing a solution, all to justify back home reasons for “infiltration.” Patriotism is heavily used, especially to hold up the perspective that our militaries are actually used to defend a country and bring democracy to other nations. In some cases yes, in most cases, no, unfortunately, they’ve been used by old men for unthinkable purposes.

There are so many examples to choose, from 9/11 to the recent supposed chemical gas attacks in Syria by Assad.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic societyThose who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).

Yes, when another politician speaks upon these facts, like Vladimir Putin outlining the ‘magical and mythical’ threats the global elite use to impose their will on other countries, it’s labelled as propaganda by mainstream media.

So, it makes absolutely no sense to really think anything of Trump, except as an outsider, one who was not “controlled” by the corporations, and the big banks like the Clinton’s, and Obama’s, and many presidents before them. Trump represents a difference in that sense, a change, but also has numerous suspicious ties and associations that are similar to the likes of Deep State puppets as well.

Again, genocides have occurred under presidents past, yet they are viewed as heroes and celebrities…News reports of Hillary Clinton covering up a massive pedophile ring in the state departments, and strange WikiLeaks documents, have also simply been brushed off as ‘propaganda.’

Things are certainly strange within the realm of politics, to say the least.


For a deeper look into our perspective on Trump, you can refer to this article: You Asked For Our Stane On Trump, So Here It Is


Trump is a great example, and one of many who has said and acted different in their campaign, but then all of a sudden change when their presidency takes place. It seems they become aware of things they were not once aware of, and greater powers begin to influence their decisions. Perhaps they are ‘checkmated’ by the national security community?

The Real ‘Powers’

The bottom line is, when it comes to politics, there are powers greater than the presidency calling the shots, and we can never really know what’s going on. All we get are the puppets, some of which may attempt in some ways, to oppose various groups within the Deep State or those who rank among the worlds ‘elite.’ They are simply used for us to point our fingers at, or idolize and worship as Gods while people behind the curtain pull the strings.

This is why the whole idea of voting is completely useless, it simply continues a cycle and system that clearly doesn’t work.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. – Buckminister Fuller

Another thing to really consider is the fact that, as retired Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghamton University and adjunct professor at Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, James Petras recently wrote,

The world is riven with class conflicts in Latin America, political conflicts between the Anglo-Americans and Russians, and economic conflicts between Washington against Europe and Asia. The conflicts have called into question the capacity of ruling elites to promote growth, to secure international stability and to foster global as co-operation.

All this comes, simply because of the fact that there is a secret government in control of politics, and what we are presented with, we never really know the details and what is really going on. Presidents throughout history have called awareness to this entity, and there are several great examples where they’ve voiced their concern of, in some cases, what they had become apart of.

Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of today. – Roosevelt

North Korea & Nuclear Weapons

Another important fact to consider is that the entire world is making nuclear weapons. Just look at the nuclear deals happening between Israel and Saudi Arabia, how come nobody is talking about that? What about America and their inventory of nuclear weapons? The fact that nuclear weapons even exist is troublesome, and what’s even worse are findings like the one Dr. Helen Caldecott, a researcher and anti-nuclear advocate describes:

In 2015, ninety-two American missile officers were suspended because they had been cheating, taking drugs, or sleeping in the missile silos. These men are employed to guard and to operate 150 nuclear missiles at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming which constitutes one-third of the 400 Minuteman 3 missiles that stand “on hair trigger alert” 24 hours a day in silos which are scattered across the northern Great Plains…

During the investigation, fourteen airmen had allegedly been using cocaine. Other drugs involved were ecstasy, cocaine, LSD and  marijuana.  All in all roughly one hundred officers were involved in the cheating scandal in 2015 and 2016.

After that, she goes on to describe more shocking “episodes of gross malfeasance,” stating that it’s amazing to her that  “we are still here having not been incinerated in a global nuclear holocaust. Suffice it to say, we are in the hands of fallible men armed to the teeth with missiles and hydrogen bombs.”

This is why I don’t even want to get into North Korea & Trump because our geopolitical world is completely out of control. I don’t know what’s going on, but I do know that the powers that be and the countries that they control have been imposing their will on the world for a very, very long time, and have used us, the human race, and our own consciousness, our own perceptions, to justify this behaviour.

The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception –  Mark Twain (source)

There is always some sort of problem in another country, and North Korea is a great example, that gives the Deep State an upper hand with regards to intervening, but thankfully the world is beginning to see through this. Even US Generals, like Ex-Supreme Allied Commander General Wesley Cark, have outlined the fact that this plan, to basically take over the world, has been in the works for years.

Again, let’s use Syria as an example.

The CIA began its active meddling in Syria in 1949—barely a year after the agency’s creation. Syrian patriots had declared war on the Nazis, expelled their Vichy French colonial rulers and crafted a fragile secularist democracy based on the American model. But in March of 1949, Syria’s democratically elected president, Shukri-al-Kuwaiti, hesitated to approve the Trans Arabian Pipeline, an American project intended to connect the oil fields of Saudi Arabia to the ports of Lebanon via Syria. In his book, Legacy of Ashes, CIA historian Tim Weiner recounts that in retaliation, the CIA engineered a coup, replacing al-Kuwaiti with the CIA’s handpicked dictator, a convicted swindler named Husni al-Za’im. Al-Za’im barely had time to dissolve parliament and approve the American pipeline before his countrymen deposed him, 14 weeks into his regime. – Robert F. Kennedy

One thing that is encouraging, however, is the denuclearization of any region by any country. The fact remains, the US has always wanted to emphasize the nuclear programs other other countries who do not currently have a central bank, and countries whose resources that the US and their allies could use. Is this agreement between Trump and the North Korean president something that only a president who opposes the Deep State could do? Because it’s hard to imagine any other president doing so.

This is the first time a president has been able to sit down with the leader of North Korea, and have come to some sort of peaceful resolution. That being said, most of these things are done with political, greedy and elitist goals in mind. Not peace…

The North Korean president referred to the meeting as a “historic turning point.”

In western mainstream media, Trump is praised by some outlets, like fox news, and others, like CNN, you will get a completely different perspective. It’s best to just not really through any negativity, fear, and judgment into what you are watching, and understand that you don’t really have any piece of the story unless you turn off your T.V. and spend a considerable time doing some independent research.

Trump Is Challenging Us To Reflect & See

If you haven’t read our stance on Trump, check it out. The amount of anger, emotions, and frustration we collectively have had about Trump being president is incredible. While I believe this shows how much we collectively need to shift our perspectives on things in general, I also believe that in many ways our emotional outcries are where things start. We have to observe our emotions and what they telling us about our beliefs and perspectives in order to see how we can move beyond them. We are massively limiting our world and reality by holding on so rigidly to what we believe. To be clear, we cannot change things from a state of anger or aggression, we must first move past this. This is a lesson humanity is learning big time right now.

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties . . . [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.”   John F. Hylan was Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925 (source)(source)

1,657 Invaders Apply for “Asylum” in Europe Every Day

Home » Europe, Immigration, Statistics / Polls » 1,657 Invaders Apply for “Asylum” in Europe Every Day

Posted by on Jun 12th, 2018 // No Comment



 


At least 1,657 nonwhites applied for “asylum” every day during April 2018, making a total of 49,716 for that month—about 1,400 more than in March—with the level of asylum applications comparable to of April 2017.

According to the latest figures issued by the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), only 6,421 of the “asylum seekers” were from Syria–or “only” 12 percent—evidence once again that the racial population movement has nothing to do with the conflict in Syria, but is just a mass Third World invasion of Europe.

The other supposed “conflict zone,” Iraq, produced 3,267 applications, or 6.5 percent of all applicants. Afghans lodged a similar number—3,117 applications—meaning that the three supposed “war zones” together accounted for less than one third of all “asylum applications.”

The biggest increase in “asylum” applications came from Venezuela. In April, Venezuelan applicants lodged 2,349 applications for international protection in the EU, a significant 62 percent increase compared to March.

This means that for the first time since 2014, Venezuela appeared among the five most common “countries of origin” and the volume of Venezuelan applications in April was the highest-ever observed across the EU since the European-wide data exchange was established.
Nigerians lodged 2,179 applications for “international protection” in April, maintaining West Africa’s claim to be one of the single biggest sources of “asylum” applications despite there being no war or other conflict in that region.

Pakistan, Iran, Eritrea, Albania and Georgia completed the list of the 10 most common citizenships of origin. Nationals of these countries lodged fewer applications than in March, with the notable exception of Iran (+ 295 or + 20 %). The declines were most notable for Georgia (- 226 or – 13 %) and Pakistan (- 200 or – 9 %). At lower levels of asylum flows, it is worth mentioning that, in April, Colombian nationals lodged almost twice as many applications (865, + 393) as in March.

The EASO figures also revealed that 1,447 applicants claimed to be “unaccompanied minors! (UAMs), with a third being from Afghanistan (250), Eritrea (172) and Syria (88), but the highest concentration of UAMs was observed among applicants from Gambia: 87 of 418, or 1 in 5.

The day to beat plastic pollution is every day

Despite the fact that it has been an issue as long as plastic has been a part of our everyday lives, the concept of “plastic pollution” is finally finding itself at the front of common lexicon—what it is, how it affects us and how we can prevent it.

The common understanding of plastic pollution has evolved beyond the image of trash as a mere eyesore to a pervasive presence permeating the environment on land, air and sea. In the news and on the internet, we see it in ocean gyres, as microplastics in the bellies of the smallest links on the food chain and in the water we drink. We know what plastic pollution looks like, and it is no longer out of sight, out of mind.

We now know that it leaches chemicals into the ground where we grow our food, and the food that feeds our food, and releases toxins and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as it breaks down (slowly) in landfills and in the environment. That we’re projected see more plastics than fish in the ocean by weight by 2050 if things don’t change is a rallying call to governments, businesses and individuals to steer a course away from inevitable crisis.

“Ending plastic pollution” is the theme this World Ocean’s Day (June 8), as it was this year’s World Environment Day and this year’s Earth Day (and Earth Month), encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment from its negative impacts. This particularly pressing concern is addressed from several angles, but the unifying front is the idea that every day is a day to end plastic pollution, no action too big or too small.

Earth Day Network, the organization that leads Earth Day worldwide, provides a plastic pollution calculator to find out how many plastic items one consumes and discards each year by asking individuals how many items they use in a day. Items used daily, such as plastic dining disposables and to-go cups, and occasionally, such as plastic bags or medicine bottles, add up quickly. Once this consumption has been calculated, there’s a call to pledge to reduce this amount, engaging consumers around a plan to end plastic pollution.

The United Nations’ World Environment Day is the “people’s day” for doing something to take care of the Earth. This year hosted by India, WED’s “Beat Plastic Pollution” message reached hundreds of millions of consumers through the #uselessplastic ad campaign, a light-hearted, funny series of television spots that gives a new spin to the phrase “be useless.” Humor has been cited as inspiring people around climate activism, and getting through to people is the first step in changing behavior.

Plastic pollution prevention is the action focus for today’s World Oceans Day, a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future. Changing our behavior towards plastic by reducing our purchases is, much more than recycling, the most effective way to effect change, but actively finding solutions for the plastic we do consume is also important. TerraCycle’s many free programs are sponsored by brands committed to recycling what is still considered difficult to recycle, and we have Zero Waste Boxes for hundreds of plastic items.

The world didn’t become littered with plastic pollution overnight, and it’ll take a bit more than that to beat it. Mobilizing around the environmental holidays celebrates awareness and brings to attention the resources available to all of us in the battle against plastic pollution. Making the decision to act in the interest of reducing the impacts our consumption makes on the environment doesn’t need to be grand or sweeping, but an honest one that you continue to make every day.
