The Non-Existent Trial of British War Criminal and Monster Frederick Lindemann

Consistent with our recent article on the British ruling-class pederast cesspool comes yet another persona in despicable hidden history: one Frederick Lindemann, the first Viscount Cherwell (1886-1957). Lindemann, dubbed “The Professor,” served as an influential adviser to fellow reprobate Prime Minister Winston Churchill. See Churchill as Neocon Stooge. Lindemann and Churchill were close friends and remained so for 35 years, with Lindemann visiting the PM in Chartwell more than 100 times from 1925 to 1939.

During the war, Churchill, whose reliance on Lindemann was often called to question, reportedly said to a member of Parliament, “Don’t you know that he is one of my oldest and greatest friends?”

The two met almost daily for the duration of the war. It was said Lindemann wielded more influence over Churchill than any other civilian adviser.

It was also said that Churchill had an attachment to homosexuals, and so much so that even The Daily Mail ran a revealing article concerning a book that speculated he may have been a low-sex-drive closet queen. Homosexual Brendan Bracken was one of a trio of devoted Churchill henchmen during the 1930s and ’40s. The others were the intelligence officer Desmond Morton and Lindemann. Both of them were bachelors, and Morton — who arranged for his papers to be posthumously destroyed — was reputed to be a homosexual. Eddie Marsh, Churchill’s personal secretary was homosexual. Lindemann was a lifelong bachelor. Both he and Churchill disliked women. The only difference was that narcissistic, anti-social, asexual Lindemann also disliked men.

The Jewish Oxford Chabad Society claimed Lindeman as one of their own; however, David Irving‘s second book on Churchill claims he wasn’t. His father was from Baden, Germany, and emigrated to England. Lindemann spoke with a German accent, and was nicknamed behind his back as Baron Berlin. Ironic given the role Lindemann played in bombing Berlin back to the Stone Age. With a dicey psychopathic persona, perhaps he was Luciferian enough to be a Sabbatean and brought in on special assignment? See Tim Kelly and Russ Winter Discuss Sabbatean Frankism’s Impact on the World.

Whatever the case, Lindeman came straight from the Aldous Huxley school of real supremacist racism (versus contrived racism). Lindemann believed in the chosenite theory, meaning that a small circle of the so-called intelligent and the aristocratic should run the world, resulting in a “stable society” that they could milk and lord over.

Lindemann said “placid content rules in the bee-hive or ant-heap,” and that “the outcome would be a perfectly peaceable and stable society,” that was “led by supermen and served by helots.” (Helots is Greek for slave.)

Lindemann was a major proponent of kleptocratic run eugenics and held the working class in contempt. Biographer Mukerjee Madhusree in “The Most Powerful Scientist Ever: Winston Churchill’s Personal Technocrat” concludes — in referring to Lindemann’s lecture on Eugenics — that Science could yield a race of humans blessed with “the mental make-up of the worker bee. … At the lower end of the race and class spectrum, one could remove the ability to suffer or to feel ambition. … Instead of subscribing to what he called ‘the fetish of equality.’”

The silver-spoon Lindemann made no secret of his contempt for social and intellectual inferiors and, according to an acquaintance, “looked upon poverty as a fault.”

In the public realm during the 1920s, as labor tried to gain a little traction against big-capital plutocracy, Lindemann produced copies of Churchill’s anti-labor keep-them-on-the-plantation tomes in the newspaper the British Gazette.

In the 1930s, Lindemann got into the armaments lobbying business and advised Winnie when the latter was out of government by leading a campaign for rearmament. Lindemann was central in the recruitment of a number of German-Jewish physicists, primarily from the University of Göttingen, to emigrate to Britain for military work. During the war, Lindemann’s crackpot scientific ideas undermined the vital work of Sir Henry Tizard and his team, who developed all the important radar technology.

Madhusree’s “Secret War: The British Empire and Ravaging of India During World War II” points the finger squarely at Churchill and Lindemann for the Bengal Famine of 1943. These demons of die-offs licked their chops as four million starved. [See “Winston Churchill and the 1943 Starvation of 4 Million in Bengal”] Lindeman lobbied to cut Indian Ocean shipping 56% — and for a extended period. While there was mass starvation in Bengal, Britain’s stockpile of food and raw materials by the end of 1943 was a record 18.5 million tons.

In his memo to Churchill, Lindeman explained his Malthusian logic and suggested that the Bengal famine arose from crop failure and its high birthrate. He failed to mention that the calamity also derived from India’s role of supplier to the Allied war effort or that the colony was not being permitted to spend its sterling reserves or to employ its own ships in importing sufficient food. In reality, Britain should have been the first to starve, but it was being sustained by food imports that were six times larger than the one-and-a-half-million tons that the government of India had requested for the coming year.

In March 1942, Churchill’s war cabinet adopted the “Lindemann Pan” whereby terror bombings of civilians became official policy.

Historian AJP Taylor remarked, “There is an almost universal belief that Hitler started the indiscriminate bombing of civilians, whereas it was started by the directors of British strategy, as some of the more honest among them have boasted.”

Earlier in the war, Germany endured a solid five months of bombing of its cities and civilians before responding in kind.

J.M. Spaight, CB, CBE and Principal Secretary to the Air Ministry (RAF) conceded, “Hitler only undertook the bombing of British civilian targets reluctantly three months after the RAF had commenced bombing German civilian targets. Hitler would have been willing at any time to stop the slaughter. Hitler was genuinely anxious to reach with Britain an agreement confining the action of aircraft to battle zones.”

A side note on the May 14, 1940, German bombing of Rotterdam: Wikipedia gives a reasonably accurate account. This was not a terror bombing. The Dutch army had fortified the center of the city and provided fierce resistance. Most civilians evacuated. This bombing was entirely military.

Cologne

Working-class homes were preferred to upper-class because they were closer together, and so a greater incineration-per-incendiary bomb could be achieved. German working-class houses were targeted in preference to military objectives, the latter being harder to hit. Factories and “military objectives” had long since been forgotten, except in official bulletins, since they were much too difficult to find and hit. Middle-class homes had too much space around them, he explained. All cities and towns of over 50,000 could be destroyed or at least brought to ruin.

If you were to get on a city bus tour of Berlin, you would see that the plush pre-war Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf neighborhoods were largely spared, as the rest of the city was razed. When one goes through German cities today, it’s clear that the older working-class neighborhoods were wrecked in WWII, while many upper-class areas were spared.

Civilian deaths from British and American bombing of European cities are estimated to have been around a million, and some 61 cities were turned to virtual rubble, while some 60,000 civilians were killed in the U.K. More bombs by weight were dropped on the city of Berlin alone than were released on the whole of Great Britain during the entire war.

With the use of a favored Anglo-American-Zio plague upon non-combatants, phosphorus [see “Mad Dog’ Mattis, White Phosphorus, the Siege of Fallujah and Endless War Crimes“], the majority of the men, women and children indiscriminately killed in the air war had perished from the inhalation of poisonous carbon-monoxide gas. If they avoided that, they were cooked in shearing heat.

Unspoken in discussions is that many foreign laborers in Germany were killed in those air raids. Many of the bombs dropped upon German cities contained a perfidious mechanism that, rather than exploding immediately upon contact with the ground or with buildings, were designed to explode hours or days later, thereby causing harm to survivors when they had emerged from their bomb shelters and cellars. They also caused serious danger to the fire fighters and rescue personnel, sometimes killing them or making their duties virtually impossible.

The fire bombing of Dresden on Feb 13 and 14 of 1945 (near the end of the war) was totally about terror. Dresden was a hospital city for wounded soldiers. It had 600,000 refugees from Silesia, which doubled its normal population. Not one military unit and not one anti-aircraft battery was deployed in the city. Churchill had asked for “suggestions how to blaze 600,000 refugees.” They came close.

Civilians killed in non-military Dresden air-raid shelters.

The strategy of targeting civilians was kept from the public, and airmen in the know were severely sanctioned for talking about it. Lindeman produced false data from a study on the psychological impact of Germany’s Birmingham Blitz and Hull Blitz on the local population. All those who disagreed with his views were arrogantly dismissed as “perfect fools.”

In reality, such terror bombing hardened resistance. For example, Germany’s greatest solder, Michael Wittmann, specifically mentioned revenge for the terror bombing as motivating him to perform super-courageous, unprecedented fanatical feats of arms during the battle of Normandy – see video in the post. In his astonishing career as a Tiger tank commander, Wittmann had Americans and Brits in his sights even more so than Russians.

As the war wound down, Lindemann enthusiastically supported the infamous Morgenthau Plan, which Churchill subsequently endorsed. Cooler heads prevented its full implementation. It centered around depopulation, forced German labor outside of Germany and de-industrialization. Germany was to be made a agrarian international zone to be governed by a consortium of international security organizations.

Winter Watch Takeaway: Churchill and his sidekick Lindemann were monsters of the worst kind. No charges were brought and their crimes were ignored.

How Most of Our Water Gets Polluted

By Dr. Mercola

In the U.S., agriculture poses the greatest threat to water quality and is single-handedly impairing drinking water supplies across the country. The key culprits are nitrogen, phosphates and other toxins that run off from industrial cropland (i.e., genetically engineered corn and soy) and concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).

In the Midwest, Iowa is at the heart of the storm, as the leader in U.S. corn and soy production and a major producer of CAFO hogs, eggs, cattle and chickens. In fact, more than 85 percent of Iowa’s land is used for agriculture,1 much of it bordering key waterways.

More than half (58 percent) of the rivers and streams in the state fall short of federal water quality standards, making them unsuitable for swimming and fishing, while another 23 percent are “potentially impaired.”2

In the greater Des Moines area alone, a region that’s home to more than 500,000 people, a water filtration facility that cost more than $4 million was installed in 1991, and it costs $7,000 a day to run. Water prices have risen up to 10 percent a year to cover rising filtration costs, and it still can’t keep up with all the nitrogen flowing into the water, according to environmental journalist Mark Schapiro.3

Now the city is facing a need for another $15 million filtration system or it will be forced to find new groundwater sources. In the meantime, people in the state have been plagued with increased risks of cancer4 and birth defects,5 likely linked to the nitrogen-contaminated drinking water.

Industrial Farms and CAFOs Are the Primary Sources of Water Pollution

In Iowa, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) states that 92 percent of the nitrogen and 80 percent of the phosphates in waterways are the result of industrial farms and CAFOs.6 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also states that manure from industrial agriculture is the primary source of nitrogen and phosphorus in U.S. waterways.7

The resulting damage includes an excess of nutrients that leads to algae overgrowth, depleting the water of oxygen and killing fish and other marine life in expansive dead zones.

This, combined with the excess fertilizers applied to monocrops like corn and soy, sends a steady stream of nitrogen and phosphorus to both surface and groundwater, spreading potentially disease-causing organisms and unsustainable amounts of nutrients along the way.

The dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico is the largest recorded dead zone in the world, beginning at the Mississippi River delta and spanning more than 8,700 square miles — and industrial agricultural pollution is primarily to blame.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that removing nitrate from U.S. drinking water costs nearly $5 billion a year,8 which the industrial agriculture industry has been largely shielded from. The water utility in Des Moines, Iowa — Des Moines Water Works (DMWW) — sued three counties in 2015, alleging they polluted the river with nitrates from agricultural runoff.

Had the lawsuit succeeded, the agriculture industry would have had to make changes to limit runoff and would have been held accountable for cleanup costs.9 Unfortunately, the suit was dismissed.

According to Schapiro, “The judge ruled that a city water district has no legal standing to sue a county, and threw the matter to the state Legislature. The legislature, according to [Bill] Stowe [CEO and general manager of DMWW], has done little to address the problem.” Stowe continued:10

“Iowa has become the sacrifice state for industrial agriculture. As a native Iowan and somebody whose family has been around here for generations, we are the sacrifice, just like West Virginia has become the sacrifice state for coal.”

The state has also faced a plague of cutbacks in funding for water monitoring, environmental health positions within the state and initiatives to plant cover crops to help absorb excess nutrients and serve as a buffer between fields and streams. Even the Aldo Leopold Nature Center, which was working to promote regenerative agriculture and reduce fertilizer runoff, lost its funding in 2017.11

Iowa Ag Is Ruining the Mississippi River

Agricultural runoff doesn’t only affect those living near industrial farms, as much of the waterways in Iowa ultimately flow into the Mississippi River. A study published in PLOS One set out to quantify Iowa’s contribution of nitrogen pollution to the Mississippi river,12 which was named the second-most polluted waterway in the U.S. in 2012.13

There are well over 14,000 CAFOs in Iowa, primarily medium and large in size and housing pigs.14 In the 2016 State of the River Report by the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, the greatest source of chemical contamination to the river was found to be agricultural runoff.

For the featured study, stream nitrate and discharge data were collected from 1999 until 2016 at 23 Iowa stream sites near watershed outlets. The results confirm that much of the nitrates devastating the Mississippi river are coming from the state.

Iowa contributes an average of 29 percent of the nitrate load to the Mississippi-Atchafalaya Basin, 45 percent to the Upper Mississippi River Basin and 55 percent to the Missouri River Basin. Back in Des Moines, Schapiro reported, Stowe, the Water Works CEO, must choose one of two rivers from which to source the city’s water each day.

He’s often faced with an impossible choice of elevated nitrogen levels or phosphorous, the latter of which promotes the growth of toxic algae. Filtering out excess nitrogen requires use of the $7,000-a-day nitrogen filtration system, but allowing algae-contaminated water to flow could be even more damaging, leading to clogged filters and water shutdowns.

In 2014, citizens in Toledo, Ohio, were warned not to drink their tap water as it was found to contain significantly elevated levels of microcystins, caused by algae blooms in Lake Erie.15 Microsystins are nerve toxins produced by some blue-green algae that can cause fever, headaches, vomiting and seizures.

The city and surrounding areas became the first to report drinking water-associated outbreaks caused by harmful algal blooms.16 And, despite government agencies spending billions of dollars to help farmers prevent fertilizer runoff and circumvent the problem, algae blooms are getting worse instead of better.17

Overall, the EPA states that about 15,000 water bodies have been identified that have “nutrient-related problems,”18 and this is likely conservative. The EPA continued:19

Nutrient pollution remains the single greatest challenge to our Nation’s water quality, and presents a growing threat to public health and local economies — contributing to toxic harmful algal blooms, contamination of drinking water sources, and costly impacts on recreation, tourism and fisheries.”

What Are the Health Risks From Nitrates in Drinking Water?

A report released by the Iowa Environmental Council (IEC) summarized the health risks of nitrates in drinking water.20 Researchers reviewed over 100 studies on the health effects of nitrates in drinking water and found multiple studies linked them to birth defects, bladder cancer and thyroid cancer.

Infants and children may be particularly at risk from nitrates in drinking water, as it can lead to “blue baby syndrome,” or lack of oxygen that can be life-threatening. In 2015 and 2016, for instance, residents of Erie, Illinois, a farming community, were warned not to give their infants tap water because it contained elevated nitrate levels of 11 ppm.21

While many of the health problems were found with nitrate levels higher than the drinking water standard of 10 mg/L, some studies suggested nitrate levels lower than the drinking water standard may still pose health risks, even at levels of just 5 ppm.

About 15 percent of private wells in Iowa, which are exempt from the Safe Drinking Water Act, may have nitrate levels that exceed federal standards.22 Even areas that source their water from underground or groundwater aquifers may be at risk, as they may leach chemicals, including nitrates, from the soil.

About 90 million Americans get their water from groundwater sources, and the Environmental Working Group (EWG) revealed that more than 3 million of them may be getting water with nitrate levels of 5 ppm or higher. According to EWG:23

“Water utilities are doing their best to deliver water with nitrate within the legal limits, but it’s an ever-increasing challenge. Erie is working with the USDA to install filters to reduce levels of nitrate in the village’s water systems. But it would be wiser for the USDA to prioritize practices designed to reduce nitrate loads at the source.

To keep drinking water free of contamination, it’s time for states to adopt basic standards of care for cropland. Requiring common-sense conservation practices ensures a baseline to protect source water, which can then be increased by voluntary measures.

The 2018 federal Farm Bill must include a stronger conservation compact that requires farmers to adopt conservation practices to reduce polluted runoff.”

North Carolina CAFOs Spew Feces Into the Environment Following Hurricane Florence

Natural disasters like hurricanes only add to the environmental damage inflicted by industrial agriculture. North Carolina is home to thousands of CAFO waste lagoons, and data from the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality revealed that more than 100 of them had released pig waste into the environment or were at risk of doing so following Hurricane Florence.24

The Waterkeeper Alliance, a nonprofit dedicated to clean water, has been sending out members in planes to document the devastation, taking photos of flooded CAFOs that would otherwise remain invisible. Waste lagoons and buildings housing thousands of animals were photographed submerged in floodwaters. Others had structural damage to the waste lagoon walls.

What’s in the billions of gallons of hog waste produced in North Carolina every year (which has now entered waterways in disturbing quantities)? In addition to the usual nitrogen and phosphorus that may lead to fish kills, E. coli and other pathogens, viruses and bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant strains are all but guaranteed.

After a hurricane, these toxins can flow freely into waterways, but even under ideal circumstances, CAFO waste lagoons may contaminate shallow groundwater with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, nitrates and ammonia.25 After the storm, the breached CAFOs will likely rebuild, only to cause more environmental damage come the next hurricane.

Writes Rick Dove, founding member of the Waterkeeper Alliance, “We need to give farming back to people who have traditionally raised animals with a sense of stewardship. At the very least, we need to move these industrial operations out of flood-prone areas.”26

Cleaner Water for Everyone

The solution to cleaner water for everyone lies in changing agricultural practices from industrial to regenerative. Choosing grass fed products like grass fed beef and bison over those raised in CAFOs is a solution that we can all take part in.

In addition, some farmers are slowly adopting the use of regenerative agriculture techniques like cover crops and no-till farming, which improves soil health and reduces the need for chemical fertilizers and herbicides, benefiting insects. While changes are urgently needed on a national scale, on an individual level I encourage you to support the small family farms in your area.

In addition, it’s best to assume your water is less than pure and take steps to remedy it, such as using a high-quality water filtration system (unless you can verify the purity of your water). If you have well water, it would be prudent to have your water tested for nitrates and other contaminants. If you have public water, you can get local drinking water quality reports from the EPA.

You can also use EWG’s Tap Water Database, which allows you to enter your ZIP code to reveal what’s really in your tap water. To be certain you’re getting the purest water you can, filter the water both at the point of entry and at the point of use. This means filtering all the water that comes into the house, and then filtering again at the kitchen sink and shower.

Everyone deserves clean water, but for most people that’s not what they get. Don’t assume that because your water looks and tastes pure that it is; take proactive steps to identify toxins in your tap water and subsequently remove them.

Petition to Stop Weedkiller in Cereal

By Dr. Mercola

Most of the more than 250 million pounds of glyphosate sprayed on U.S. crops annually is used on genetically engineered (GE) crops,1 like Roundup Ready corn and soybeans that are engineered to withstand the chemical’s otherwise lethal effects. (Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide.)

Lesser known is the fact that glyphosate is also used by farmers as a desiccant. About two weeks prior to harvest of grain crops like wheat, oats and barley, glyphosate is sprayed onto the crop, which accelerates the drying process, allowing for earlier harvest.

The benefits of using glyphosate are clear for the farmer. It may allow them to complete their harvest before wet weather comes and, by drying out the grain, it may reap them a higher profit, as the greater the moisture content of the grain at sale, the lower the price they get.

The consequences of this shortsighted practice are steep for everyone else, unfortunately. It’s likely that applying this toxic chemical to crops so soon before harvest is one reason why levels of glyphosate have been rising in humans, and a petition has been launched to try and stop the destructive practice.

Consumer Groups Call for End to Preharvest Glyphosate Spraying

The Environmental Working Group (EWG), along with MegaFood, Ben & Jerry’s, Stonyfield Farm, MOM’s Organic Market, Nature’s Path, Happy Family Organics and other consumer groups, has petitioned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce the amount of glyphosate residues allowed in oats from 30 parts per million (ppm) to 0.1 ppm, as well as prohibit the use of glyphosate as a preharvest desiccant.2

The 0.1 ppm limit for glyphosate on oats was actually the legal limit in 1993 — it has since been raised 300-fold, in response to a petition from Monsanto around the time farmers began to widely use glyphosate as a desiccant late in the season.3

Speaking to Sustainable Pulse, Scott Faber, EWG’s senior vice president for government affairs, said, “No parent should worry whether feeding their children healthy oat-based foods will also expose them to a chemical linked to cancer. Using glyphosate as a desiccant is not necessary, but only a convenience for growers. That’s not worth taking a chance with our children’s health.”4

As it stands, neither the EPA nor the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) monitors for glyphosate levels on most food crops, even as studies suggest Americans’ exposure levels are increasing.

Is Glyphosate Preharvest Spraying Responsible for Rising Glyphosate Levels in Americans?

Researchers from University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine tested urine levels of glyphosate and its metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) among 100 people living in Southern California over a period of 23 years — from 1993 to 2016.5

At the start of the study, very few of the participants had detectable levels of glyphosate in their urine but, by 2000, 30 percent of them did, rising to 70 percent by 2016.6 Overall, the prevalence of human exposure to glyphosate increased by 500 percent during the study period while actual levels of the chemical, in ug/ml, increased by a shocking 1,208 percent.7

In an analysis for Environmental Health News, Richard Jackson, professor at the Fielding School of Public Health at UCLA, and Charles Benbrook, a visiting scholar in the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University, asked the question of why levels are increasing so dramatically.

The planting of Roundup Ready crops can’t explain the rise on their own, as they were already being widely used by 2004 to 2005, with only modest increases in glyphosate use since 2005. “The likely answer lies elsewhere,” they stated, with preharvest spraying of glyphosate:8

“Around 2002, farmers in the U.S. started adopting preharvest, desiccation uses of Roundup … Such ‘harvest aid’ uses of glyphosate entail spraying fields about two weeks prior to harvest … But spraying a mature grain or bean crop so close to harvest with a glyphosate-based herbicide results in much higher residues than traditional, spring or early summer applications.

Beginning around 2004 and over about the next decade, incrementally more acres were sprayed to speed up harvest in the U.S. It is nearly certain that residues from these applications were largely responsible for doubling the levels of glyphosate and its metabolite found in the urine of Rancho Bernado residents.”

Olga Naidenko, EWG’s senior science adviser for children’s health, told CNN, “We know it is possible to grow oats and other grains without herbicides. Companies do not need to wait for EPA; they can simply talk to their suppliers and say, ‘please grow our oats without glyphosate, because our customers are complaining.'”

EWG toxicologist Alexis Temkin added, “This type of use of glyphosate is a very small percentage of the overall use, yet it can have the greatest impact on human health, so we think this is the place to target reducing the use of glyphosate.”9

How Much Glyphosate Is in Your Favorite Foods?

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) commissioned independent laboratory tests to determine how much glyphosate is lurking in the U.S. food supply. While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been testing foods for glyphosate, and tests reportedly revealed “a fair amount” of residues, their findings have not yet been made public.10

EWG’s testing revealed, however, that 43 out of 45 food products made with conventionally grown oats tested positive for glyphosate, 31 of which had glyphosate levels higher than EWG scientists believe would be protective of children’s health.

Examples of foods with detectable levels of glyphosate include Quaker Dinosaur Eggs instant oatmeal, Cheerios cereal, Nature Valley granola bars, Quaker steel cut oats and Back to Nature Classic Granola. Further, out of 16 organic oat foods tested, five contained glyphosate, although at levels below EWG’s health benchmark of 160 parts per billion (ppb).

In 2016, tests conducted by the nonprofit organizations Food Democracy Now! and The Detox Project also found glyphosate residues in a variety of foods including Doritos, Oreos and Stacy’s Pita Chips.11

Glyphosate has even been detected in PediaSure Enteral Formula nutritional drink, which is given to infants and children via feeding tubes. Thirty percent of the samples tested contained levels of glyphosate over 75 ppb — far higher levels than have been found to destroy gut bacteria in chickens (0.1 ppb).12 Where else might you find glyphosate in your favorite foods?

As the most widely used pesticide in the world,13 you can guess that it’s showing up virtually everywhere. Advocacy group Moms Across America sent 10 wine samples to be tested for glyphosate, and all of them tested positive — even organic wines, although their levels were significantly lower.14 A study of glyphosate residues by the Munich Environmental Institute even found glyphosate in 14 best-selling German beers.15

Glyphosate Deemed a Probable Carcinogen

The prevalence of glyphosate in the food supply is alarming because of the many health risks it’s been linked to. Food companies like Quaker have stated that any levels of glyphosate that remain in food products are significantly below any limits set by the EPA,16 but this doesn’t necessarily make them safe.

“Small doses over large populations do have effects — we have learned this from radiation exposures, lead and other environmental pollutants, including pesticides,” Jackson and Benbrook said.17 Daily exposure to ultralow levels of glyphosate for two years led to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in rats,18 for instance.

In March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is the research arm of the World Health Organization (WHO), also determined glyphosate to be a “probable carcinogen” (Class 2A). This determination was based on evidence showing it can cause Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and lung cancer in humans, along with “convincing evidence” it can also cause cancer in animals.

California’s Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) also announced in 2015 that they intended to list glyphosate as a chemical known to cause cancer under Proposition 65, which requires consumer products with potential cancer-causing ingredients to bear warning labels.

In contrast, the EPA has stated glyphosate is probably not carcinogenic to humans, but internal documents have revealed the agency has colluded with Monsanto to protect the company’s interests.

Children May Be Most at Risk From Glyphosate Residues in Oats

A primary reason why the EWG petition is calling for glyphosate levels in oats to be limited to 0.1 ppm as they were in 1993 is because children consume a sizable number of oat products in the U.S. (cereal, cookies, breakfast bars, oatmeal and more).

Not only do EWG’s studies suggest that glyphosate levels may be higher in oat products than they are in even wheat and corn, but “real dietary exposure” is not limited to oat products. Children and adults are being exposed to glyphosate from a variety of sources, with potentially devastating effects.

In August 2018, jurors ruled Monsanto (which was taken over by Bayer in June 2018) must pay $289 million in damages to DeWayne “Lee” Johnson, a former school groundskeeper who claimed the company’s herbicide Roundup caused his terminal cancer.

The jury agreed, awarding Johnson not only in the form of monetary justice but also collaborating claims that Monsanto knew for decades that Roundup was dangerous — and acted with “malice or oppression” to cover up its risks.19 The EPA, likewise, has appeared to incorrectly dismiss concerns relating to glyphosate toxicity. In their petition, EWG noted:

“EWG contends that the EPA Office of Pesticide Programs incorrectly dismissed many study findings that showed statistically significant dose-response trends for glyphosate carcinogenicity. EPA’s dismissal of those studies has enabled the continued approval of increasingly high tolerance levels of glyphosate as a residue on common foods.”

Monsanto Hid Involvement in Ghostwriting Journal Studies

During the Johnson trial, court-ordered unsealed documents revealed that Monsanto scientists ghostwrote studies to clear glyphosate’s name and even hired a scientist to persuade the EPA to change its cancer classification decision on the chemical.20 Critical Reviews in Toxicology will also issue an “Expression of Concern” on a Roundup safety study because Monsanto didn’t disclose its involvement in the research.21 

The study was a supplement to the journal, titled, “An Independent Review of the Carcinogenic Potential of Glyphosate.” It claimed the articles had not been reviewed by Monsanto employees or attorneys, but internal emails revealed “Monsanto scientists were heavily involved in organizing, reviewing and editing article drafts,” Bloomberg reported.22

Unfortunately, the journal intends to leave the paper’s title alone, even though, as Nathan Donley, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity, told Bloomberg, “There is nothing independent about this review by any stretch of the imagination.”23

Dicamba Is Killing More Trees

Dicamba is another herbicide of concern, use of which has been increasing due to the release of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready Xtend cotton and soybeans — GE plants designed to tolerate both glyphosate and dicamba. Dicamba is notorious for drifting, and even the newer formulation, which was supposed to have low volatility, is continuing to drift.

When it hits neighboring crops or trees that aren’t dicamba-resistant, the results are often devastating. Previously, at least four states — Iowa, Illinois, Arkansas and Tennessee — have received complaints that dicamba may be damaging oak trees and other species, particularly sycamore, cypress and Bradford pear.24,25

In Tennessee, thousands of cypress trees near Reelfoot Lake, some more than 200 years old, have needles that are curling and turning brown as a result of dicamba drift. The EPA placed some restrictions on dicamba usage in 2017, but reports of damage have continued in 2018 — and state officials aren’t doing much to stop it. According to NPR:26

“There are billions of dollars at stake. Monsanto is arguing that the government can’t take this tool away from farmers. If used properly, the company says, dicamba doesn’t hurt anything but weeds …

Back at Reelfoot Lake, [Mike] Hayes [who owns a resort on the lake] says his prematurely brown cypress trees are evidence that this isn’t true. He thinks state politicians are ignoring the problem — in part because they’re scared of Monsanto.”

Monsanto, meanwhile, has continued to downplay the damage reports, sometimes blaming them on farmers’ use of the chemicals at wind speeds higher than outlined on the label, changes in wind speed or direction, or on other factors entirely.

They have no plans to scale back usage of the environmentally devastating chemical, instead boasting that they intend to sell even more GE Xtend crops (and the dicamba to go along with them) in 2019.”27

How Much Glyphosate Is in Your Body — and Your Drinking Water?

If you’d like to know your personal glyphosate levels, you can now find out, while also participating in a worldwide study on environmental glyphosate exposures. The Health Research Institute (HRI) in Iowa developed the glyphosate urine test kit, which will allow you to determine your own exposure to this toxic herbicide.

Ordering this kit automatically allows you to participate in the study and help HRI better understand the extent of glyphosate exposure and contamination. In a few weeks, you will receive your results, along with information on how your results compare with others and what to do to help reduce your exposure. We are providing these kits to you at no profit in order for you to participate in this environmental study.

In the meantime, eating organic as much as possible and investing in a good water filtration system for your home are among the best ways to lower your exposure to glyphosate and other pesticides.

In the case of glyphosate, it’s also wise to avoid desiccated crops like wheat and oats. If you want to know how much glyphosate may be in your drinking water, HRI has also developed a glyphosate water test kit that will allow you to determine glyphosate levels in your water source.

If you’re concerned about glyphosate residues in your food, you can help to prompt change by reaching out to the companies that make your food. Let them know that you prefer foods without glyphosate residues — and are prepared to switch brands if necessary to find them.

In addition to voicing your opinion to food companies, contact the EPA and encourage them to restrict preharvest applications of glyphosate in order to reduce the amount of this toxic chemical entering the food supply.

Roundup Weed Killer Called Out as a Bee Killer

By Dr. Mercola

Use of glyphosate, a weed killer registered in 130 countries, has risen exponentially since the introduction of genetically engineered (GE) glyphosate-resistant crops. Between 1974 — the year glyphosate entered the U.S. market — and 2014, glyphosate use increased more than 250fold in the U.S. alone. Today, an estimated 300 million pounds are applied on U.S. farmland annually.

Globally, nearly 5 billion pounds (over 2 billion kilograms) of glyphosate are applied to farm crops each year.1 While GE crops were the catalyst for this tremendous surge in usage (since they were specifically designed to encourage farmers’ use of glyphosate), the chemical has also become a popular tool for desiccating non-GE grains and legumes, and that has also spurred its use.

About 70 different commonly consumed food crops are sprayed with glyphosate, so just because a food is not genetically engineered does not mean it’s free of glyphosate. As previously discussed in many articles, glyphosate and glyphosate-based weed killer formulations such as Roundup have been linked to a wide variety of human health consequences, including:

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma2

Impairing your body’s ability to produce fully functioning proteins3

Inhibiting the shikimate pathway (found in gut bacteria)

Interfering with the function of cytochrome P450 enzymes, required for activation of vitamin D and the creation of nitric oxide

Chelating important minerals4

Disrupting sulfate synthesis and transport5

Interfering with the synthesis of aromatic amino acids and methionine, resulting in folate and neurotransmitter shortages6

Disrupting your microbiome by acting as an antibiotic7

Impairing methylation pathways8

Inhibiting pituitary release of thyroid stimulating hormone, which can lead to hypothyroidism9,10

Alas, humans are not the only species suffering the effects of this widespread use of glyphosate. According to researchers at the University of Texas at Austin, glyphosate may also kill bees by altering the bacterial composition in the bees’ guts, making them more prone to fatal infections.11,12,13,14,15,16,17

Glyphosate Implicated in Bee Die-Offs


For years, researchers have struggled to pinpoint the reasons behind dramatically dwindling bee populations. This certainly isn’t the first time a pesticide has been implicated. Previous findings have shown neonicotinoid pesticides are particularly harmful to bees and other valuable insects such as butterflies.

In April 2018, the European Union banned the use of neonicotinoids as a result of such findings.18 Glyphosate, however, has long been considered harmless by U.S. regulators. This misconception is now crumbling in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary. Not only is glyphosate harmful to humans and mammals; insects, microbes and even the plants themselves are harmed in various ways.

According to the authors of this study,19 “bees rely on a specialized gut microbiota that benefits growth and provides defense against pathogens,” and “Exposing bees to glyphosate alters the bee gut community and increases susceptibility to infection by opportunistic pathogens.” Erick Motta, a graduate student at University of Texas at Austin and lead author told Science Daily:20

“We need better guidelines for glyphosate use, especially regarding bee exposure, because right now the guidelines assume bees are not harmed by the herbicide. Our study shows that’s not true … It’s not the only thing causing all these bee deaths, but it is definitely something people should worry about because glyphosate is used everywhere.”

How Glyphosate Kills Bees

Glyphosate works by targeting an enzyme called 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) in the shikimate pathway, found in plants and certain microorganisms. This EPSPS enzyme is found in most of the gut bacteria in bees, which is how they become susceptible to the toxic effects of the weed killer. The researchers explain:

“The honey bee gut microbiota is dominated by eight bacterial species that promote weight gain and reduce pathogen susceptibility. The gene encoding EPSPS is present in almost all sequenced genomes of bee gut bacteria, indicating that they are potentially susceptible to glyphosate.

We demonstrated that the relative and absolute abundances of dominant gut microbiota species are decreased in bees exposed to glyphosate at concentrations documented in the environment. Glyphosate exposure of young workers increased mortality of bees subsequently exposed to the opportunistic pathogen Serratia marcescens.

Members of the bee gut microbiota varied in susceptibility to glyphosate, largely corresponding to whether they possessed an EPSPS of class I (sensitive to glyphosate) or class II (insensitive to glyphosate) …

All strains of the core bee gut species, Snodgrassella alvi, encode a sensitive class I EPSPS … Thus, exposure of bees to glyphosate can perturb their beneficial gut microbiota, potentially affecting bee health and their effectiveness as pollinators.”

Bayer Dismisses Findings

As you’d expect, Bayer — which now owns Roundup after acquiring Monsanto earlier this year — issued a statement21 dismissing the findings, saying “No large-scale study has ever found a link between glyphosate and honey bee health issues,” and Motta’s paper “does not change that.”

“The paper does not provide any evidence that the purported effects could have a negative impact on bee health under realistic field conditions.

It is also questionable whether the concentrations of the substance tested could at all be absorbed by bee populations in the open over a relevant period of time … Furthermore, the paper relied on a relatively small number of individual bees which were tested.”

Glyphosate Shown to Affect Microbiome in Rats

Other recent research22 has shown the glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup reduces beneficial bacteria in the colon of female rats. In fact, regardless of the dose — 0.1 part per billion (ppb), 400 parts per million (ppm) or 5,000 ppm — the animals’ gut bacteria underwent significant changes.

The study was conducted by Gilles-Eric Séralini, a French molecular biologist who has spent years researching GE food and the impact glyphosate has on human health.23

He is perhaps best known for his 2012 lifetime feeding study linking GE corn and Roundup to cancer. While pressure from Monsanto initially led to the retraction of Séralini’s study in November 2013, it was later republished in the Environmental Sciences Europe journal.24

In this rat study, some species of bacteria were found to be highly resistant to Roundup and the reason for this turned out to be because they do not have the EPSPS gene that glyphosate targets.

They also found that “these gut microbiome disturbances showed a substantial overlap with those associated with liver dysfunction in other studies.” According to Séralini, “The acceptable levels of glyphosate residues in food and drinks should be divided immediately by a factor of at least 1,000 because of these hidden poisons.”25

Glyphosate Also Impacts Plant Nutrition and Soil Biology

Glyphosate’s primary mode of action is that it shuts down amino acid synthesis, followed by inhibition of protein synthesis necessary for plant growth. As a result, the plant dies. However, this also causes the plant to be more susceptible to soil microbes, including pathogens.

The reason for this is because the amino acids are also building blocks for other compounds that have defensive functions against soil pathogens. As a result, the plant becomes more susceptible to attack and infection by microorganisms in the soil.

Glyphosate also acts as a mineral chelator, and minerals such as zinc, copper and manganese, which are essential cofactors in many plant enzymes. Chelating or removing these minerals from the plants is largely responsible for impairing their protein synthesis as the enzymes involved in syntheses require the minerals to function. This then opens the plant up to attack.

Now, since glyphosate becomes systemic when applied to the plant, meaning the chemical is integrated into every cell of the plant, it also ends up passing through the roots into the soil. That’s in addition to that coming into contact with the soil surface during application. Once the glyphosate is in the soil, it acts as an antibiotic and a chelator, making valuable minerals unavailable to the plant.

While that’s bad enough, as this affects the nutrient content of the food, nutrients also become unavailable to the beneficial microorganisms living in the rhizosphere. What’s more, if the minerals are bound to glyphosate in the plant, there’s no way for your body to dissociate that bond to make the nutrients available when you eat it. Instead, those minerals will simply be excreted back out, or stored in your body right along with the glyphosate.

Roundup Creates Antibiotic Resistance in E. Coli and Salmonella

In 2015, researchers also discovered that commonly used herbicides promote antibiotic resistance by priming pathogens to more readily become resistant to antibiotics.26 Roundup, dicamba and 2,4-D were all found to increase the antibiotic-resistant prowess of E. coli and salmonella specifically.

The researchers speculate that this effect is caused by turning on a set of genes in the bacteria that activate porins, proteins that create toxic compounds that essentially “immunize” the bacteria to the antibiotic, thereby rendering it more resistant to the drug. Importantly, this change was found to occur at concentrations commonly found on farm fields, lawns, gardens and public parks.

A 2017 study27
published in the journal Microbiology set out to determine which of the ingredients in the commercial formulations were the cause of this effect, and results showed it’s the active ingredients — including glyphosate — that are to blame.

“Active ingredients induced changes in antibiotic responses similar to those caused by complete formulations. This occurred at or below recommended application concentrations,” the researchers write.

While the concentration of glyphosate necessary to induce antibiotic resistance is lower than that typically found as residue on food, adults could probably reach the level that causes antibiotic resistance by eating large amounts of food with low levels of residue, while children could also be at risk, according to the researchers.28

Heather Hendrickson, senior lecturer in molecular bioscience at Massey University, told the Genetic Literacy Project, “The message from the paper is clear, we need to reconsider our use of herbicides in light of the effect that they are having on the microbial world.”29

Monsanto Sued for Misleading Consumers

Monsanto’s main argument for Roundup’s safety has been that glyphosate (the active ingredient) works by targeting the EPSPS enzyme, found in plants but not people or animals. Alas, researchers have clearly demonstrated that glyphosate affects more than just plants, and the reason for this is because this enzyme also exists in microbes, including bacteria found in soil and the intestines of not only humans but also animals and even some insects.

Aside from a probable cancer link, Roundup’s effect on gut bacteria also suggests the chemical may play a significant role in digestive issues, obesity, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, Parkinson’s disease, liver diseases and many other chronic health problems. And, as revealed in the featured bee study, the chemical may also play a role in the bee die-offs experienced around the globe over the past decade.

Since the company has refused to set the record straight, the Organic Consumers Association and Beyond Pesticides have sued Monsanto for false and misleading labeling.30 The lawsuit was filed in April 2017. Monsanto filed a motion to have the case dismissed, saying the label is accurate because “the enzyme targeted is not produced by the human body or found in human cells,” but U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly rejected the motion.

In his May 1, 2018, ruling, Kelly stated, “The court concludes that Plaintiffs have adequately pleaded a claim that the statement at issue was false or misleading,” and that “defendants cannot dispute that the label’s statement that the enzyme at issue is ‘found in plants, but not in people’ is, at least on one reading, literally false.”

Avoid Glyphosate by Buying Organic Foods

Time will tell the final outcome of that lawsuit. In the meantime, it’s up to you to take whatever precautions necessary to protect yourself and your family — and our all-important soils and pollinators — from this pernicious toxin.

One of the best ways to avoid it and discourage its continued use is to buy certified organic produce and grass fed animal foods whenever possible, as organics and grass fed standards do not permit the use of synthetic pesticides.

While many grocery stores now carry organic foods, it’s preferable to source yours from local growers whenever possible, as many organic foods sold in grocery stores are imported.31 If you live in the U.S., the following organizations can help you locate farm-fresh foods:

Demeter USA — Demeter-USA.org provides a directory of certified Biodynamic farms and brands. This directory can also be found on BiodynamicFood.org.

American Grassfed Association — The goal of the American Grassfed Association is to promote the grass fed industry through government relations, research, concept marketing and public education.

Their website also allows you to search for AGA approved producers certified according to strict standards that include being raised on a diet of 100 percent forage; raised on pasture and never confined to a feedlot; never treated with antibiotics or hormones; and born and raised on American family farms.

EatWild.com — EatWild.com provides lists of farmers known to produce raw dairy products as well as grass fed beef and other farm-fresh produce (although not all are certified organic). Here you can also find information about local farmers markets, as well as local stores and restaurants that sell grass fed products.

Weston A. Price Foundation — Weston A. Price has local chapters in most states, and many of them are connected with buying clubs in which you can easily purchase organic foods, including grass fed raw dairy products like milk and butter.

Grassfed Exchange — The Grassfed Exchange has a listing of producers selling organic and grass fed meats across the U.S.

After Reporting Massive Corruption Inside the EU, TV Reporter Was Raped and Murdered

A TV reporter who covered EU funds fraud cases was brutally murdered and allegedly raped in northern Bulgaria. The horrific indent is the third murder of a journalist in the EU amid concerns over press freedom.

The body of Victoria Marinova, 30, who hosted a show on local TVN, was found dead on a popular jogging route near the Danube River in the city of Ruse on Saturday. The city has never seen such a brutal crime, according to experienced criminologists cited by local media.

The woman was raped and beaten, and succumbed to head injuries and suffocation, according to local media citing investigators.  The victim’s cell phone, car keys, and some clothes were not found with her, but the car reportedly was not stolen.

No official version of the chilling murder has been presented so far as the authorities are trying to find the perpetrators, saying it’s “just a matter of time.” Police have not ruled out any motives for the heinous crime.

What the Hell Happened at Gaia?

I really think that greed and the power to hold a major monopoly on the spirituality-consciousness-alternative health/wellness-disclosure-conspiracy theory market was what was driving them at the inception of their enterprise. They marketed themselves to people like David Wilcock, Patty Greer and others, and very successfully, as a platform to bring their work to a much larger audience.

In hindsight, it was like a corporate stable with each of these people like prize horses in that stable. These prize horses made them rich, but meanwhile, over time, these “horses” found that their contracts were definitely limiting just like stable walls and corrals. Gaia corporate could be the gatekeepers of their content and owned copyrights to content produced on their platform.

Also, while corporate management was getting wealthy from the content their stable of “horses” produced, these individuals, while making decent money, were not having enough of the fruits of their labor coming back to them. They were making Gaia management rich with their unique content, but only sharing in a fraction of the money their unique content was making. Not at all fair.

It was bound to crash as it is now, and now Gaia corporate is really running scared, and trying to recoup and keep their cash flowing in after the departures of some of their prize “horses”.

They want to utterly and exclusively control the disclosure narrative and they want to punish those who left by making sure they can’t get work, attention, or use the word disclosure.

It’s not going to work, and this is why.

The very people first attracted to subscribing to the Gaia network are a demographic of folks of better than average intelligence and education, and by their very natures of wanting the information Gaia was promising, were people who value honesty and integrity highly. Gaia corporate, trying to do damage control by quickly finding their own “secret space program insider”, vetted by god-knows-who or by what standards, is an absolute affront to the intelligence, honesty and integrity of their subscribers.

Gaia corporate has now shown, and continues to show, their true face, and its a not a pretty face. And it’s a face most of their subscribers are not going to want any part of.

‘Satanic Cult Awareness’ Training Guide

Found in the archives of the US Department of Justice, this 1988 document lays out the rituals, mind control methods and symbolism of satanic groups in the United States

In Secret Recording, Polish PM Slams ‘Greedy’ Jewish, American Hedge Fund Owners

2013 conversation in Warsaw restaurant part of series of tapes that boosted popularity of Mateusz Morawiecki’s right-wing Law and Justice party

2 October 2018

THE TIMES OF ISRAEL (JTA) — Poland’s prime minister was heard making allegedly anti-Semitic remarks in secret recordings from 2013, before he rose to power.

The recordings of Mateusz Morawiecki complaining to friends about “greedy” and rich “Americans, Jews, Germans, Englishmen, and Swiss” that run hedge funds were published Tuesday by the news site Onet.

Part of a corruption scandal, the remarks appeared in a 3-hour recording of Morawiecki, who was then a senior banker, discussing politics and finance with his friends at a prestigious Warsaw restaurant. […]
