Chicago carjacking surge leads to highest number in a decade

A surge in carjackings in Chicago led to the highest number of vehicle thefts in more than a decade, as Windy City cops trying to get the city’s murder problem under control increasingly find themselves playing criminal whack-a-mole, with the carjacking menace the newest threat to show its head.

And it’s not just Chicago. St. Louis, Milwaukee and Baltimore are among the metropolitan areas experiencing an increase in carjackings, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. Police in St. Louis, a city which has established a carjacking task force to fight the problem, told the newspaper that gang members often take to the Internet to boast about their thefts.

“You’ll have one of them post that they got a Lexus, and then the other responds and say he stole a Mercedes,” said St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Maj. Kenneth Kegel. “It is almost like a game, where they want to one up each other.”

In Chicago, carjackings have risen sharply over the last year, from about 700 in 2016 to 950 in 2017 – the highest level in more than a decade. So far this year there have been at least 100, even though the city appears to be getting a better handle on murders and shootings, which fell 16 and 21 percent, respectively, between 2016 and 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Meanwhile, carjackings in St. Louis rose from 74 in 2012 to 197 in 2017, and went up 35 percent in Baltimore between 2016 and 2017, according to the Wall Street Journal. But nationally the crime can be difficult to track, as neither the FBI or the Major Cities Chiefs Association – a group of police officials from the largest cities in the nation – keep records on carjackings.

Police and crime experts told the Wall Street Journal the surge is also attributed to repeat offenders who use the stolen vehicles to carry out other crimes.

“Both car thefts and jackings have been driven by a need for a motor vehicle to commit additional crimes,” Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, told the newspaper. “That crime may be a retaliatory homicide…or the vehicle is sometimes traded for drugs.”

Recent carjacking arrests in Chicago include three teens who tried to escape with a car belonging to a retired police officer, who, with the help of witnesses, kept them at the scene until cops arrived, according to reports. Three teens were also arrested in December after being spotted driving the wrong way down a street in a car stolen from a Chicago Tribune reporter, police said.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson, lawmakers and community leaders called Sunday for tougher state laws to deal with carjackers.

Carjacking arrests have doubled in the Windy City this year because of more surveillance equipment and crime-prediction software. But officers and a police union there say light punishment for motor crimes in Illinois and a pursuit policy that prevents cops from chasing vehicles driving erratically – out of fear of injuring bystanders – is playing a role in the carjacking surge.

“Our mission is clear: we want to prevent carjackings and cars from being stolen to strengthen community safety,” Emanuel said Sunday. “As a challenge facing communities across the state, we are seeking to use the laws better and more effectively to give victims a better chance to get justice in court.”

Legislation proposed by the group would make it easier for victims of car thefts to pursue Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle charges, which can carry up to a 7-year prison term.

Under current Illinois state law, police can only pursue those charges if they establish that someone driving a reported stolen vehicle has knowledge it was stolen, which can be difficult to prove, the mayor’s office says.

Because of that, the majority of car thieves in Chicago and the state are getting off with a lesser misdemeanor charge, it added.

Since January of last year, 74 percent of motor vehicle theft charges were filed as misdemeanor criminal trespass to vehicle, while only 21 percent were hit with the more serious Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle charge, according to statistics from the mayor’s office.

“Whenever someone’s personal property and safety have been violated, we need to do whatever we can to ensure that they are made whole again,” said Illinois state Rep. Jaime Andrade Jr. “The legislation announced today will allow us to give some level of closure to victims and help us to reduce future incidents.”

Emanuel and Johnson also announced Sunday that police cruisers are being outfitted with license plate readers. The changes come about a week after police in Chicago said they were teaming up with federal authorities, including agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, to deal with the carjacking surge.

Corrupt Gov’t Tries to Snub Out Journalist After She Exposed Shocking Number of Jail Deaths

journalistjournalist

San Diego, CA — Even though the First Amendment of the US Constitution states “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,” one California reporter says she has been targeted by San Diego County for her investigative reports detailing extraordinary number of deaths of inmates in the county’s jails. Local journalist and Voice of San Diego (VOSD) contributor Kelly Davis has been pressured to reveal her sources and has been hauled in to court to defend her reporting.

In what is shaping out to be a clear violation of the Constitution, Davis’ report chronicled 60 inmate deaths in local jails from 2007 to 2012. The report should have been a wake-up call for jailers to work harder to keep people from getting killed or committing suicide while in custody, but VOSD said it was anything but a call to action.

Instead, the county’s attorney’s turned their attention and set their sights on one of the reporters covering the story. “They’ve upended her life, forcing her to do one of three things — expose sources by testifying about her work, agree to a deal that would protect her fragile health at the expense of harming the widow’s case or fight back,” writes VOSD.

In a blatant overreach of government, the attorneys issued several demands of the journalist:

The county demanded that Davis give testimony in a deposition and provide all the documents, notes and recordings that she used in her reporting about the county’s high jail mortality and suicide rates. It also demanded her communications with the widow’s attorneys regarding jail suicides.

Davis refused. Not only is she fighting to save her career and her independent rights to reporting without disclosing sources, she’s also fighting an advanced stage of breast cancer. She wonders openly if lawyers are trying to intimidate her.

I am just wondering if they are trying to intimidate me.

Davis got roped into a lawsuit brought about by Kris Nesmith’s widow. Nesmith, a veteran committed suicide while in jail, despite being warned by his widow he was suicidal. The county then named Davis as a party in the lawsuit and demanded Davis’ notes, statistics, interviewee’s names—everything she had on the deaths taking place in the jails. Her lawyers contended the data was a matter of public record and she would not turn over her private journalist files.

For the moment, the judge is on Davis’ side, telling the county the news stories should have been a wake-up call for the county to take action and implement a proper suicide-prevention policy.

It is plausible that if the County had reacted to the prior suicide incidents by implementing an appropriate suicide prevention policy or by remedying the alleged custom of indifference, Kris’s suicidal ideations would not have been ignored.

Earlier this month, the judge also ruled Davis would not have to disclose any information to the county’s lawyers. Davis was relieved and told reporters:

You want journalists to be free to do their stories and to gather their research, talk to their sources, without worrying that someone is looking over their shoulder.

While Davis’ case may seem like an isolated one, news media organizations all across the United States are under attack, particularly accused of being purveyors of “fake news” and threatened with censorship. Facebook, which used to be known for allowing freedom of speech from differing points of view, has recently implemented its new “algorithm” which supposedly chooses for its users what news they should see.

Predictably, alternative points of view have been weeded out to disallow the previously permitted free speech of its content creators. The measure has hurt the freedom of the press to disseminate the news. For now, Facebook is getting away with it. However, lawsuits will likely decide just how far, like San Diego County, Facebook can go to prevent the free exercise of the press.

USA set to be world’s number 2 oil producer for 2018

The International Energy Agency (IEA)’s most recent report offers a panorama of the global oil market.

Demand is slowly rising.

Supply which still exceeds demand, is stable for the following reason: while there has been a collapse in production in Venezuela and a drop in the levels of extraction in the North Sea and Libya, this has been offset by an increase in production in the United States, Canada and Brazil.

The United States which has now a lot of oil from fracking, especially from the Gulf of Mexico (Pemex), will probably overtake Saudi Arabia in 2018 and rival Russia.

It is predicted that the price of a barrel of crude, currently 63 dollars (West Texas Intermediate) and 68 (Brent), should reach 70 dollars.

11 11 Meaning: Do You Keep Seeing This Unusual And Powerful Number?

By 

Numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth. – St. Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354 – 430)

You have just glanced the number again on the clock: 11:11 am. A chill runs through your spine. Deep down you intuitively sense that this number has some kind of great importance … but you don’t know what.

If you have been seeing 11 11 and other repetitive numbers such as 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 1010, 1212, 777, and so forth, pay attention! There is an important reason why you’re seeing these numbers more often: these numbers are wake up calls from your Soul and the Universe.

THE SECRET MEANING OF NUMBERS

Numbers have a way of taking a man by the hand and leading him down the path of reason. – Pythagoras

It was the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras who first popularized the idea that all numbers have different vibrational properties. Since then, modern science and mathematics have proven that the world conforms to precise geometric mathematical principles. These principles govern everything from gravity to the movements of animals and the habits of humanity.

It was from Pythagoras’ discoveries about the world that the ancient system of Numerology was developed. Some scholars even believe that Numerology pre-dates Pythagoras and derives from the ancient mystical Hebrew Kabbalah which is thousands of years old.

Numerology is a system of divination which assigns various numbers unique meanings based on mathematical principles. According to numerology, everything can be calculated such as birth dates, names, and places to uncover deeper hidden truths.

11 11 MEANING

According to numerology, the number 11 is a “master number” which signifies intuition, insight, and enlightenment. When paired together, 11 11 is a clear message from the universe to become conscious and aware. Many people suggest that seeing 11 11 signifies that your spirit guides are attempting to contact you. In my experience, 11 11 seems to be the number of spiritual awakening, signifying that you are on the right path and your actions are aligned with your Soul’s purpose. In other words, seeing 11 11 is a good sign! An energetic doorway is being opened in which you will experience spiritual growth.

11 11 meaning in summary: You are on the right path and you’re being assisted by your Soul, spirit guides, and the Universe to consciously grow and expand. Pay attention, be aware, and remember to stay grounded in the present moment. You are going through a spiritual awakening process and you’re being asked to tune into the love and synchronistic guidance that is always available to you. Many profound changes will begin to occur in your life. Remember to stay open!

WHAT DO I DO AFTER SEEING 11 11?

As you consciously expand, you will find yourself seeing numbers such as 11 11 more and more. These instances are known as synchronicity, because you are in the divine flow of life. Personally, I would see 11 11 and other repetitive numbers sometimes four or five times a day as I began to experience a spiritual awakening. All of these numbers seemed to anchor me into the present moment and the truth I was experiencing. I would always feel more grounded and lovingly guided during these periods, knowing that there was “something happening” beyond the veil of physical reality.

In order to make the most of this energetic “doorway,” you might like to adopt a few practices:

1. 11 11 MEANING AND YOUR LIFE

Ask yourself, “What does 11 11 signify to me?” In other words, when you see this number, how do you feel or what thoughts arise in your head? Your 11 11 meaning will often vary each time you see it. For example, one moment it might mean “pay attention!” and on another day it might mean “you are on the right path, keep going.”

2. STAY OPEN AND RECEPTIVE

Be alert to new opportunities for growth. 11 11 often signifies that a period of change is about to start within you. Remember that all people, feelings, and situations that you come across are chances to spiritually evolve.

3. REMAIN GROUNDED AND PRESENT

Our tendency to live through the mind creates immense stress and anxiety. During this awakening period, try to stay grounded in the present moment. You might like to practice mindfulnessdeep breathing or meditation to help you stay centered. The more present you can be, the more you will be available for growth.

4. SHOW GRATITUDE

Life responds positively to gratitude. Even the simplest act of giving thanks for what you have and the guidance you’re receiving, uplifts your spirit immediately. Gratitude opens the heart, and when your heart is open, it is ready to expand. Some cultures like the Peruvian Q’ero people, even create gratitude offerings to the earth known as despachos. Why not create one yourself?

5. ASK FOR GUIDANCE WHEN NEEDED

All of us, no matter who we are or what period of life we’re in, need help. If you need advice or help, reach out to someone you trust. Speak with a close friend, family member, spiritual guide or best of all, your own Soul. One of the simplest but most effective ways to receive guidance, in my experience, is saying a prayer. Address your prayer to whomever or whatever you believe in, whether that be God, Goddess, Allah, Krishna, Life or Spirit. I prefer to address my prayers to my Soul.

***

The number 1 itself signifies creation, leadership, and manifestation, so 11 11 is a dynamic number full of great potential.

You may see this number on number plates, clocks, cash register tills, receipts, and just about anywhere. So pay attention! (On a strange sidenote, 11.11.11 was actually the date of my union with Sol.)

The Number One Enemy of Most Christians Is Their Church

 

nwo and the church

As this Sunday comes and goes, I will not be attending my former church. With a scant few exceptions the church has been invaded in the same manner that our Constitution has been obliterated. Why won’t I be attending my church? Because I want to save my soul for eternity.

Refusing to Stand Up to Evil

As the country struggles to come to grip with the unscreened immigrant invasion, which includes the importation of an unknown amount of Muslim terrorists, our economy is threatened like never before, our collective health and our national security is at extreme risk, and yet, we are unable to look to our churches to provide the leadership needed in this time of crisis. Most concerning is the fact that our country is being overrun by unscreened Muslims from areas of the world that hate Americans. Our FBI says 10% are likely terrorists. As a result, we are staring down the real possiblity that we are going to be facing multiple San Bernardino incidents. Yet, your pastor is silent. Christians are not being admitted as immigrants under the refugee/resettlement program from the Middle East. Christians are being beheaded, yet the Obama administration has condemned our Christian brothers, in certain parts of the Middle East, to a certain and brutal death, often by beheading. We admit many of the executioners to our country, but not the persecuted. In some parts of the world, being a Christian is a death sentence. If your pastor does not speak about this on Sunday. he is complicit with his silence.

 

AMERICA, WAKE UP! IT IS YOUR CHILDREN THAT GOES TO SCHOOL EVERY SINGLE DAY IN GUN FREE ZONES WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES. IT IS YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS THAT ARE SHOPPING AT THE MALLS THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON WITHOUT PROTECTION. IT IS YOU THAT COULD BE LOOKING DOWN THE BARREL OF AN AK-47! AND WHAT IS CONGRESS DOING ABOUT IT? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, EXCEPT TO LET IN MORE POTENTIAL TERRORISTS!!!

 Christians Usually Meet An Untimely End

 

Who is Next?

Who is Next? Has your pastor condemned the Islamic practice of beheading Christians? Does your pastor fear God or does he fear  HILLARY?

Maybe it is the fate of the modern Christian to die a martyrs death.

Most of the disciples of  Jesus were martyred for their uncompromising views towards corrupt civilian authority, except for John, who died of extreme old age and Judas, who committed suicide after betraying Jesus. Many of Jesus’ followers met an untimely end. For example, Peter was crucified, head downward, during the persecution of Nero. James, was thrown from a pinnacle of the Temple, and then beaten to death with a club. Thomas, the doubter, was run through the body with a lance at Coromandel, in the East Indies. Yet, today, most of our 501 C3 tax exempt churches have embraced the suicidal course of Judas as they have made a deal with the devil by espousing government doctrine even when it violates the word of God.

In opposition to the early founders of the church and in opposition to the teachings of Jesus Christ, today’s church bends over in the face of evil. It acquiesces to the evil and drags its followers to the gates of hell by demanding compliance to the illegitimate authority and decidedly non Christian forces which are subjugating this country. Today’s pastors are doing so under the guise and bastardization of Romans 13.

CASE IN POINT

Today’s churches have been bought off by embracing a false interpretation of Romans 13.  IF these churches care so much for these recent immigrants, then let them pay for the health screening physicals along with the national security checks that the FBI says they cannot afford, or have the manpower to execute. Churches in America are complicit in helping to transport potential terrorists into the heartland of country. WHY WOULD ANY CHRISTIAN GIVE THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY TO SUCH A CORRUPT ORGANIZATION?

Americans need to withdraw their spiritual and financial support from these churches that are part of the equation of putting every American citizen at risk. Start your own home Bible study. Let the churches die on the vine. You can still worship Christ without contributing to your own demise. When the churches go broke, DHS and Hillary Clinton, are going to have to find their minions in other places.

The Church and the Constitution Have Both Been Conquered

There are other reasons to leave your church beside the fact that most support the importation of an unknown number of terrorists to our country.

 

min_height=”none”]

Christians and Americans, as a whole, on the endangered species list.

Christians and Americans, as a whole, on the endangered species list.

501I recently condemned pastors who support and lead churches who “enjoy” the 501-C-3 tax exempt status offered by the IRS. Does your pastor command you to follow the will of the government, because it is your Christian duty to do so under Romans 13? If so, your pastor is likely a traitor to the word of God. The fake church’s message is simple, support radical Islam, no matter the cost. According to the Pope, Allah and God are equals because the government says so and Romans 13 commands you to obey.  However, the words I just wrote puts me in violation of the new interpretation of Romans 13. I am a sinner if I speak out about the forces who perpetrated the San Bernardino massacre.

The modern interpretation of Romans 13 is pure blasphemy. This scripture has been morphed into a doctrine espousing the “Divine Right of Kings” in which God has somehow chosen a king to ruthlessly rule over a people and it is incumbent upon the people to accept their “God-given fate”,  The flock are commanded to “…submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.”  This false interpretation is nothing but a divine coronation of a ruthless, self-serving government and Christians are expected to capitulate and honor the same kind of thievery, lawlessness and murder which inspired Jesus to expel the moneychangers from the Temple.

 

The Great American Holocaust just reach new lows in depravity through the sale of fetal body parts and organs.

The Great American Holocaust just reach new lows in depravity through the sale of fetal body parts and organs. Has your pastor had the courage to speak out against this heinous practice? If not, leave your church immediately!

As I contemplate what many of the churches will be like as they embrace a perverted interpretation of Romans 13, I am left wondering what kind of God would condone the horrific abuses being perpetrated by the Obama administration? What kind of God would command its religious leaders to simply ignore the American Holocaust which has witnessed the murder of over 70 million American babies, since Roe vWade, in 1973? What kind of God would have us ignore Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal body parts? Has your pastor said anything about this in your Sunday services?

What Kind of God Would Do This?

JESUS money chANGERSAsk yourself, what kind of God would fail to command his clergy to not speak out and to condemn the actions of the criminal money changers on Wall Street, who are inspired only by the love of money as they continue their heinous assaults upon humanity in the form of unlabeled poisonous GMO’s, the theft of solvent home mortgages by the mega banks, and the secret detentions and the murder of American citizens under the NDAA. What kind of God would order his followers to remain silent as the bankster controlled government plans to commence a world war starting with Syria in order to support the preservation of the Petrodollar which will result in the potential death of billions of human beings?

In actuality, no God of the Bible would ever command his followers to both enable and to serve the evil which permeates our government. For any church that encourages complete obedience to a corrupt administration has taken a big step towards accepting the Mark of the Beast. This is a very dangerous precedent, and this could potentially imperil the salvation of millions if Christians allow this false doctrine to further expand across our nation’s churches.

FOR CHRISTIANS TO SURVIVE, THE CHURCH IN ITS PRESENT FORM MUST DIE!

PICK ONE: There are either two genders, or an infinite number of genders … Which option is rooted in biological reality?

Image: PICK ONE: There are either two genders, or an infinite number of genders … Which option is rooted in biological reality?

(Natural News)
Liberals, you have a choice to make: There are either two genders, or an infinite number of genders; pick one.

It’s unfortunate that we are even having discussions like this in the first place, but nevertheless, there is an ongoing debate in this country regarding whether a person’s sex and gender is defined by biology or by how they feel on the inside. Those who argue the former believe (correctly) that those born with male genitalia are males, and those born with female genitalia are females. On the contrary, those who believe in the latter argument, argue that science and biology are irrelevant, and that the only thing that matters is how someone feels.

In other words, even if someone was born with male genitalia, if he feels like a woman, a liberal would argue that he is a woman. So which mindset should our society adopt and move forward with?

It’s worth noting that there are numerous problems with compelling all of society to switch from basing gender on science to basing gender on how one feels on the inside.

For one, if self-identity now trumps science, that means that there is an infinite number of genders because there’s no limit to what people can choose to self-identify as. Under this warped mentality, people can identify as anything they want, from a tree, to a car, to a polar bear, to a hamster, to a space alien. People would even be allowed to throw random letters together and use that as their gender, even though not a single other person on earth would have any idea what that word means. (Related: However you identify, there are only two types of brains: male and female.)

Liberals have even admitted that there is no way to put a number on the amount of genders currently in existence. In the latest installment in his YouTube series Change My Mind, conservative commentator Steven Crowder talked to several college students about this very issue, and not a single one was able to say how many genders there are.

“I would say, um – we would say there are two genders being man and woman, and then that there would be people that don’t accept either one of those, and that would be an X or in a non-identifying category,” one of the students told Crowder.

Another said, “You can’t put a number on the number of genders because everyone uses different words to classify themselves.” (Related: There has been a huge increase in the number of children being indoctrinated with gender identity propaganda.)

If the choice is between two genders or an infinite number of genders, it unfortunately seems as though the Left have chosen the latter, even though basic science and biology don’t back that theory up. What’s worse is that not only are liberals starting to reject science and replace it with people’s personal feelings, but they are also now trying to compel all of society to think and speak like they do as a matter of law.

In California, health care workers who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse to use a transgendered patient’s “preferred name or pronouns” could face time in jail, according to a new law that was signed by Governor Jerry Brown back in October. Even though some democrats, such as state Senator Scott Wiener, have argued that no one is going to be prosecuted for using the wrong pronoun, the language used in the legislation itself seems to suggest otherwise.

“It shall be unlawful for a long-term care facility or facility staff to take any of the following actions wholly or partially on the basis of a person’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status,” the bill reads.

So, there are an infinite number of genders, and if you use the wrong one, you could face jail time. If that’s not a recipe for disaster, then what is?

Chemotherapy found to increase the number of tumor cells circulating in the blood, spreading it to previously unaffected areas

Image: Chemotherapy found to increase the number of tumor cells circulating in the blood, spreading it to previously unaffected areas

(Natural News)
Chemotherapy is a pretty scary prospect, but a lot of people are convinced by their doctors that its potential benefits are worth enduring the very unpleasant side effects. Unfortunately, a new study shows that getting chemotherapy before surgery can actually increase the tumor cells in your blood and spread the cancer to other areas. This adds to the growing body of evidence that chemotherapy isn’t as solid of a cancer treatment as many doctors make it seem.

According to the study, which was published in Science Translational Medicine, several common breast cancer chemotherapy drugs that are used for treating localized as well as advanced breast cancer actually caused the number of microscopic structures found in breast tumors to grow. This is known as tumor microenvironment of metastasis (TMEM), and it helps invasive cancer cells to break out of the tumor and circulate into the body at large.

This is significant because it is usually distant metastasis – which occurs when cancer cells from a primary tumor in the breast form tumors in other parts of the body – that kills breast cancer patients rather than the breast tumor itself.

In the study, the researchers used four mouse models of breast cancer that were developed to imitate the clinical scenario of patients getting chemotherapy before surgery for shrinking primary tumors in locally advanced disease and killing the cancer cells that have moved into the nearby lymph nodes and elsewhere.

They found that the mice who were given the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel had anywhere from two to three times the number of TMEM as those who were not given the drug, and their TMEM activity was also heightened. This was manifested via a higher density of macrophages, a greater permeability in tumor blood vessels, and an increased expression of Mena protein forms found in invasive cancer cells.

As if that weren’t bad enough, the paclitaxel treatment also caused the number of tumor cells in circulation to double and led to increased micrometastasis in the subjects’ lungs.

Three drugs identified that cause breast cancer to spread

Paclitaxel wasn’t the only drug that spurred TMEM formation. Two other common chemotherapy drugs also had a pretty poor record in the study. Both cyclophosphamide and doxorubicin led to higher TMEM activity, more TMEM sites, and a greater number of circulating tumor cells in mice.

To see how humans fared, the researchers compared biopsy specimens that were taken from 20 breast cancer patients prior to and following treatment using a neoadjuvant regimen of doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and paclitaxel. They discovered that the majority of the patients studied had noted a rise in TMEM sites following the neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Five of the patients experienced an increase in the number of TMEM that was more than fivefold, while none showed a decrease.

Unfortunately, chemotherapy leaves a lot to be desired as a cancer treatment. While it would be unfair to say it has no benefits for anyone at all, many patients become sicker as a result of it. Since January 1, 2000, nearly 18 million people have died from chemotherapy, according to the Pharma Death Clock.

In addition, it brings with it a lot of unpleasant side effects. Most of us have heard about the nausea and hair loss that it causes, but studies have also shown that chemotherapy can cause breast cancer patients to suffer from brain damage. One study in particular, from the Stanford University School of Medicine, found that women who had undergone chemotherapy for breast cancer had reduced cognitive abilities in the areas of the brain responsible for planning, memory, and cognitive control. All of this seems like a very high price to pay for something that could end up spreading the cancer that it purports to treat.

Slowing Spin of the Earth Will Triple the Number of 2018 Quakes

Where is Superman when we need him most? New research into seismic data collected since 1900 has confirmed that minute slowdowns in the rotation of the Earth can result in a noticeable increase in earthquakes … and we are at the end of one of these slowing periods. While fracking and tectonic plate shifts often get blamed for local quakes, this phenomenon affects the entire planet and 2018 looks like it’s going to be a pretty shaky year no matter who your country’s leader is.

On five occasions in the past century a 25-30% increase in annual numbers of Mw≥7 earthquakes has coincided with a slowing in the mean rotation velocity of the Earth, with a corresponding decrease at times when the length-of-day (LoD) is short. The correlation between Earth’s angular deceleration (d[LoD]/dt) and global seismic productivity is yet more striking, and can be shown to precede seismicity by 5-6 years, permitting societies at risk from earthquakes an unexpected glimpse of future seismic hazard.

Rebecca Bendick of the University of Montana and Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado presented their earth-shaking findings at the 2017 Geological Society of America held recently. They plotted the rotational slowdown periods with earthquake periods and found that the end of deceleration resulted in the start of 5-6 year periods of increased earthquake activity. The bad news is that, in case you haven’t figured it out yet, we are at the finale of one of those decelerations. According to their calculations, the probability of magnitude 7 or greater earthquakes is about 25 to 30 percent higher during the next five years, with the average of 15-20 large quakes per year rising to 25-30 in 2018, especially around the equator.



If just a handful of our 600,000 monthly readers donated one dollar, I could easily crush my modest yearly fundraising goal of $10,000 by January 31 2018. If you value the information on this site and have the means, please consider making a donation below. Your support will help us expand, keep ads off the site and buy out any remaining advertising contracts we have with vendors. No contribution is too small and will undoubtedly go towards the many expenses this site incurs. If would like to learn more about our mission, please visit our manifesto here.

Thank you so much for your support,

The Truth About Vaccines Revealed By A Number of Doctors, Scientists & More







What do you really know about vaccines? Is it as much as you think? Do you know how they are made, or what’s in them? Do you know how these ingredients affect the immune system? Do you know their risks and potential side effects, or how often vaccine injuries occur?

If you are relying on your paediatrician to know all of these answers and keep up with the latest research, you may in fact be risking your family’s health.

Do you know how much training doctors actually receive about vaccines? And do you know exactly what they do and don’t learn about them? You might not know that they get told vaccine injury occurs “one in a million,” and when a patient or parent presents with a concern that think they are vaccine injured, the Doctor has been trained to say ‘no it’s not connected’.

With huge profits (vaccines make an estimated 30 billion dollar profit each year) associated with their promotion, vaccine ‘health benefits’ tend to be highly exaggerated, and their risks downplayed, denied, or outright ignored.  Parent’s get shown glossy promotional leaflets with the mild side effects listed on them and aren’t being shown the vaccine inserts which is where the serious information is found.

Running from November 28 to December 7 is Vaccines Revealed, a nine-part documentary series featuring some of the world’s most renowned experts when it comes to the ‘other’ side of vaccination — the side that most doctors, scientists, and parents often know little about.

The series has been produced with award-winning documentary maker Jeff Hays (the man behind Bought The Movie) and Dr. Beau Pierce, CEO of Circle Of Docs, and health activist Dr. Patrick Gentempo.

Mandatory Vaccination: The Violation of Human Rights

Did you know that mandatory vaccination is on the horizon for many states and countries, and is already in full effect in some? Certain jobs now require staff to get vaccines or else they will be fired. California now requires children to be fully vaccinated according to the CDC’s schedule, and in Australia you cannot get certain welfare payments unless your child is fully vaccinated. Nor can you put your child into day care unless they are vaccinated according to the Australian schedule.  You now may not abstain for religious or philosophical reasons any longer, and medical exemptions signed by doctors are being scrutinised.

There is nothing in place to protect children from possible injuries, nor is it easy to get financial help or compensation if they do become injured. Some families find themselves in financial ruin, and many simply cannot afford to pay for appropriate treatment.

Simply put, all of this violates our human and parental rights. Where there is risk, there must be choice.

Many people, including our doctors, tend to forget that vaccines are drugs, and all drugs have side effects — including death — which is why vaccine inserts are so lengthy. Vaccines can and do cause harm to some of us.  That is inevitable. The manufacturers know this because when they carry out studies, as they report the side effects reported by  the patients.

The Vaccine Debate: Why Is It Silenced, Ridiculed, and Shut Down?

Why are we allowed to debate the side effects of ‘regular’ drugs — of which there is zero denial they can cause harm — but when it comes to vaccines, we are shut down by those around us? Shouldn’t we be able to ask questions and not be abused for it? Or not get kicked out of our doctor’s office because we are questioning the status quo? With a medical procedure that carries frightening risks, shouldn’t we have to be fully informed about how they work in the body and the possible detrimental effects they can pose to our health?

Corruption, Control, and Lies

Vaccines Revealed shares with us how Big Pharma has controlled and manipulated the media for decades to keep this important truth hidden. They’ve silenced and ridiculed whistleblowers, and repressed brave scientists who questioned the so-called safety of vaccines. For the doctors who do speak out, they have taken away their licences, destroyed their reputations, and even put some of them in jail.

Big Pharma has bribed many politicians and government health officials and organizations. The public tends not to know about the revolving doors between the FDA, CDC, other health agencies and drug companies.

With corruption infiltrating most of our powerful industries today, we have had enough. The issue of vaccination affects each and every one of us and is impacting our most precious and our most vulnerable: our children.

This has to stop.

It’s Time to Become Fully Informed and to Expose the Truth
