‘Poison Papers’ reveal chemical industry secrets
By Caroline Cornell [Full article here]
Tucked away in an Oregon barn for decades was a collection of internal documents, correspondence, and chemical safety studies detailing the lengths the chemical industry took to conceal the dangers of their products.
The documents in this collection—dubbed the “Poison Papers”—allege fraudulent chemical safety testing, corporate concealment of chemical dangers, and collusion between the industry and the regulators who were supposed to be protecting the public and environment. Commonly used herbicides like Roundup (glyphosate), dicamba, atrazine, and 2,4-D feature prominently among the papers, as do nearly every large chemical corporation.
Now, thanks to the combined efforts of the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) and the Bioscience Resource Project (BRP), this collection is available online for the first time.
We spoke with Lisa Graves, CMD’s executive director, about what the collection reveals and how we’re still feeling the effects from improper chemical approvals from decades past.
Lo and behold, out in my part-time job as a medtech/driver, after, count ’em, SIX full days of abiding by the one meal per day (OMAD) prescription by a guy named WIL (What I’ve Learned): http://bit.ly/2rNkUVY_Fasting_OMAD_WIL.
But I made the mistake of buying a large—standard size today is 22 oz, remember how soft drinks all used to be 12 oz?—Pepsi vanilla-cherry carb-onated, caffeinated cola to pick me up for the leg home. Which must have helped to launch a sudden craving-based notion that I would stop and buy a Hot ‘n’ Ready pepperoni pizza from Little Caesars, some potato chips, then go home and eat until stuffage.
Binge junk food supper.
Actually, this is the first time I’ve stopped for a ready made pizza, and I was only expecting to get maybe three pieces for like $6. So I was kind of astonished that for only $5 they give me a grownup-sized eight pieces, shown above right with accouterments. Think about that for a minute: A six-inch turkey sub from Subway, which costs about the same, has roughly the same number of calories as a single piece of the Hot ‘n’ Ready above (~300). So in calories per dollar, the majorly junk option is 800% more economical for the average consumer. Continue reading →
To obtain justice for the people, think independent grand juries and think BIG!
Please refer to this preview package from The Truman Prophecy, which describes and envisions one of the two major salients of the Toto (Truth) phase for fulfillment of the Prophecy. Namely, the reclamation of the American people’s inherent, First Principles tool of the common sense grand jury—an institution qua sword directly monitoring and controlling public official behavior (thus negating government-and- associates’ corruption/criminality), as well as to provide qua shield a defense for every individual against any public official trying to run over an individual’s liberty.
Initially, I considered the idea of forming ‘virtual’ grand juries, which would be set up just as we envision real grand juries, only we would do the work online under auspices of a public service organization that would be populated nationwide at all the levels with virtual grand juries for high-profile, liberty-affecting cases. We would publicize the results of GJ deliberation to put pressure on public officials to start resurrecting real GJs for all jurisdictions. This will work, and I have set it in motion with a writeup, but we need a major breakthru on this justice front NOW.
The Bingo-Eureka Discovery
At a 9/11 Truth event featuring a visit from independent journalist Christopher Bollyn, I had a Bingo-Eureka moment. I believe this is it: the best idea for encouraging the proliferation of people’s grand juries is to start out BIG. In this case, essentially convene a system of international ‘war crimes’ tribunals… only configure them as true courts with First Principles grand juries at the foundation with all the basics: Continue reading →
‘Deprogramming’ the Blue Pillars—the imminent prospect of human liberation
The significant finding reported from Part 1 of this column is that truth-seeking independent human minds are figuring out how to unravel the mind-control lock that afflicts many of our ‘respected, moral productive peers’ due to the Global Mob’s (Glob’s) brainwashing programs. This is a HUGE discovery for advocates of humanity and liberty (via independent psychology), because when we Independents turn these so-called Blue Pillars away from their belief that American coercive establishment institutions (in particular) are morally legitimate, then in a nanosecond that malevolent beast of the establishment crashes and burns.
It will be like the Second Little Boy in the Hans Christian Andersen fable, The Emperor’s New Clothes. If you recall, in that story, the First Little Boy blows the whistle on the vain king. Then the boy suffers a whole lotta indignant reactions from all the adults, who say, “How dare you question our good and gracious king? You should be spanked and even sent to your room.” BUT—and the original fable doesn’t make it clear what causes the loyal subjects all at once to attest to the obvious truth. Continue reading →
… plus did we just hear the death knell for biotech and Big Agra/Pharma?
Okay, sad to say, I wasn’t always this brilliant and worked out, completely correct on every issue that I deign to wield my pen at. 🙂 No sir. In fact, as recent as late 2008 I wrote a column—in the interests of full disclosure it remains at this location in my old format—that advocated voting for Obama above John McCain (even over the LP candidate that year, Bob Barr).
[I’ll never live that one down, but you can see the problem that McCain was simply a continuation of the warmonger Bush machine; a lot of other libertarians held their noses for peace and helped to launch the presidency of the Great Dictator born in Kenya. Also, I’m on record in some forum or book in 2004-ish as favoring John Kerry over LP choice, Michael Badnarik, to give a more emphatic NO to George Bush II. I know, in particular, I created hard feelings over the Badnarik slight. And I’m not happy in retrospect with the flippant-bordering-on-disrespectful style I used to disparage a vote for Michael. Sorry. (He was and is a wonderful stalwart for liberty, who has written an excellent book, Good to be a King, and teaches classes on the Constitution to audiences, nationwide.) ] Continue reading →
