What Big Pharma Doesn’t Tell Parents: The Truth About Aluminum & Mercury In Children’s Vaccines

Below are two previously published but important articles featured on our website that go into detail regarding mercury and aluminum. We are working to create more awareness on this topic as well as share an important documentary series about this subject that’s everyone should watch to stay informed.

Chemicals that are commonly used in the production of vaccines, according to the CDC, are done so to improve the effectiveness of the vaccine. Adjuvants like aluminum (one of the most common) are a component of vaccines that potentates the immune response to an antigen. The adjuvant is basically used to invoke the desired immune response.

Aluminum has been added to vaccines for approximately 90 years, and since then, a lot of controversy, especially in recent years, has emerged regarding their safety and effectiveness.

This is precisely why we are raising awareness about this new docu-series which features a number of experts (doctors and scientists) discussing the topic of vaccines. Click here or on the image below to find out more about the series. 

 This controversy comes as a result of a number of recent studies (some of which are presented in this article) outlining clear concerns over the use of aluminum in this manner, as well as the fact that over the past few years, billions of dollars have been paid to families with vaccine injured children.

There are a number of reasons why more parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children.

This is quite concerning, given the fact that recommended immunization rates have more than doubled in the past few decades. In some developed countries, by the time a child is 4 to 6 years old, they will have received a total of 126 antigenic compounds, along with high amounts of aluminum adjuvants through routine vaccinations.

Here are some eye opening reasons why so many people are starting to question the safety of administering vaccines that contain aluminum.

Below is a a video from Chris Shaw who you’ll more about later in the article

No Safety Assessments (Toxicity Studies) For Vaccine Ingredients

Again, aluminum has been added to vaccines for approximately 90 years, and one disturbing fact that many people still don’t know is that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and vaccine manufacturers themselves have not conducted or included appropriate toxicity studies/testing proving the safety of aluminum, or any other ingredients, for that matter. These ingredients have been put into vaccines based on the assumption that they are safe. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s kind of disturbing, isn’t it?

So because vaccines have been viewed as non-toxic substances, the FDA and vaccine manufactures have not conducted appropriate toxicity studies to prove the safety of vaccine ingredients – more specifically, aluminum.(source)

I have a document from 2002 from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)…discussing the assessment of vaccine ingredients…and testing specifically in animal models…Back then, the FDA states that the routine toxicity studies in animals with vaccine ingredients have not been conducted because it was assumed that these ingredients are safe, when I read this I was kind of pulling my hairs out [thinking] ‘So, this is your indisputable evidence of safety?’ – Dr. Lucija Tomlijenovic, PhD., a post-doctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia where she works in neurosciences and the Department of Medicine. (source)

She also has documents which reveal that vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. They show that health authorities and vaccine manufacturers made “continuous efforts to withhold critical data on severe adverse reactions and contraindications to vaccinations to both parents and health practitioners in order to reach overall vaccination rates, which they deemed were necessary for ‘herd immunity.’ ” (source)

If we take a look at the FDA’s website/guidelines, it’s not like this is a secret. The statement above (from Lucija) comes from their 2002 guidelines, which is a fairly recent document, but more than 10 years later, despite all of the studies demonstrating clear cause for concern, not much has changed.

Until recently, few licensed vaccines have been tested for developmental toxicity in animals prior to their use in humans. (source)

Despite their long use as active agents of medicines and fungicides, the safety levels of these substances have never been determined, either for animals or for adult humans—much less for fetuses, newborns, infants, and children. – Jose G. Dores, Professor at the University of Brasillia’s department of nutritional sciences. (source)

Aluminum Is An Experimentally Demonstrated Neurotoxin

A growing number of studies have linked the use of aluminum adjuvants to serious autoimmune outcomes in humans.  (source)(source)(source)(source)

The use of this adjuvant has been connected to all kinds of diseases, from autism to brain disease to Alzheimer’s and much more.

Experimental research … clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans –  Dr. Lucija Tomlijenovic (source)

There are numerous studies which have examined aluminum’s potential to induce toxic effects, and this is clearly established in medical literature, and has been for a long time. (source)

If significant aluminum load exceeds the body’s capacity to get rid of it, it is deposited into various tissues that include bone, brain, liver, heart, spleen, and muscle. Aluminum is found in cigarettes, cosmetics, food, medicines (aspirin), and much much more. It’s in our environment, and we are surrounded by it. This is concerning, because aluminum was not really around until the industrial revolution. Today, it shows up in so many products. And we know, from the work of Richard Flarend, that aluminum is commonly absorbed into the body, into areas it shouldn’t be, and has been found in various urine samples from multiple studies examining this topic… and that’s not just for aluminum in vaccines.

We increasingly have this compound that was not part of any biochemical process on Earth, that can now only go and do havoc, which is exactly what it does. It causes all kinds of unusual biochemical reactions. – Dr. Chris Shaw, a Neuroscientist and professor at the University of British Columbia

Here is a great video by Dr. Christopher Exley, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Keele University and Honorary Professor at UHI Millennium Institute. He is known as one of the world’s leading experts on aluminum toxicity.

Again, all of this information is exactly why we are promoting this new docu-series about vaccine safety. Here it for yourself from the mouth of a number of doctors and scientists from around teh world. 

The Body Reacts Differently To Aluminum Adjuvants In Vaccines Than To Aluminum Absorbed Into The Body From Food, Water, Medicine, etc…

Just imagine, you have a higher than normal body burden of aluminum. You are potentially accumulating it in certain areas in the body. You then receive multiple vaccinations, all of which contain some aluminum. In those multiple vaccinations, aluminum is acting as adjuvant and antigen, it sets off cascades of potential responses which I believe potentially can then cascade around the body, setting off potentially other stores of aluminum, whether they be in the brain, or the bone, the connective tissues, the places where we might expect to find high or raised levels of aluminum. Could this type of cascade effect explain why an aluminum adjuvant could then in some individuals only, produce such adverse effects? … Many of the adverse affects that you see in people who have suffered following vaccination are very similar to the known effects of aluminum intoxication. Dr. Christoper Exley (source)

One of the most common arguments to support the administration of aluminum into vaccines is the fact that a person usually accumulates more aluminum in their body each day from food alone, but what is not often considered is that your body has a different method of flushing it out of your system. They body is very good at doing this, usually through the kidneys, as illustrated by the video above.

But when you inject aluminum, it goes into a different compartment of your body. It doesn’t come into the same mechanism of excretion, and that’s the whole point of adjuvants, they are meant to stick around and allow that antigen to be presented over and over again. It can’t be excreted because it must provide that prolonged exposure of the antigen to your immune system. This is why they put it into vaccines in the first place. Something to think about.

Another great video here, a clip of Dr. Chris Shaw, a Neuroscientist and professor at the University of British Columbia, explaining the dangers of putting aluminum into vaccines as an adjuvant.

***HERE is an article that explores in depth (heavily sourced) why so many parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children. It’s important to present this information because these parents are often criticized and misunderstood.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries Has A Lot To Say About Aluminum In Vaccines

Mercury

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman of the World Mercury Project (WMP), announced a $100,000 challenge today aimed at putting an end to including mercury, a neurotoxin that is 100 times more poisonous than lead, in vaccines administered in the U.S and globally.

It’s offered to anybody, including journalists and scientists, who can provide a study showing that it is safe to inject mercury into babies. This will be difficult, as hundreds of studies (that were also present at the press conference in print form) suggest that it isn’t safe at all, and can significantly increase the risk of developing neurodegenerative disorders.

Robert De Niro and numerous other people support the World Mercury Project, many of which made a historical appearance at the National Press Club today bringing attention to an issue that more people are becoming aware of every single year. For nearly 100 years, appropriate safety assessments (toxicity studies) have not been conducted for the administration of vaccines containing mercury as an adjuvant, yet we continue to give them to the general public. Government health authorities have been putting mercury (and aluminum) in vaccines based solely on the assumption that it is safe to do so.

You can view the full press conference on the World Mercury Project Facebook Page.

Since vaccines have been perceived as non-toxic substances for decades, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not attempted to prove the safety of this particular vaccine ingredient. Considering billions of dollars have been paid to families of children injured by vaccinations, it’s fair to say that this is an alarming state of affairs, so it’s about time that this press conference was held. (source)

Here is a quote from Dr. Jose G. Dores, a professor at the University of Brasilia’s Department of Nutritional Sciences who recently published a study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. In the study, he offers the following observation: “Despite their long use as active agents of medicines and fungicides, the safety levels of these substances have never been determined, either for animals or for adult humans—much less for fetuses, newborns, infants, and children.”  (source)

A fairly recent Meta-Analysis published in the Journal Bio Med Research International found that:

 “The studies upon which the CDC relies and over which it exerted some level of control report that there is no increased risk of autism from exposure to organic Hg in vaccines, and some of these studies even reported that exposure to Thimerosal appeared to decrease the risk of autism. These six studies are in sharp contrast to research conducted by independent researchers over the past 75+ years that have consistently found Thimerosal to be harmful. As mentioned in the Introduction section, many studies conducted by independent investigators have found Thimerosal to be associated with neurodevelopmental disorders. Considering that there are many studies conducted by independent researchers which show a relationship between Thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders, the results of the six studies examined in this review, particularly those showing the protective effects of Thimerosal, should bring into question the validity of the methodology used in the studies.” (source)

Not only was the science (all from PubMed) present at the conference, facts about scientific fraud and industry influence were also brought up.

For example, Dr. William Thompson, a longtime senior CDC scientist, published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies, which showed that there was absolutely no link between the MMR vaccine and autism (Thompson, et al. 2007, Price, et al. 2010Destefano, et al. 2004). However, Dr. Thompson recently admitted that  it was “the lowest point” in his career when he “went along with that paper.” He went on to say that he and the other authors “didn’t report significant findings” and that he is “completely ashamed” of what he did. He was “complicit and went along with this,” and regrets that he has “been a part of the problem.” (source)(source)(source)

A  study with revised information and no data omitted was published by Dr. Brian Hooker (a contact of Dr. Thompson) in the peer reviewed journal Translational Neurodegeneration, and it found a 340% increased risk of autism in African American boys receiving the Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. The study has since been retracted around the same time of this controversy.

You can read the full study HERE; although, unsurprisingly, it has since been retracted.

Thompson’s attorneys, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Bryan Smith of Morgan & Morgan, also released a statement from Dr. Thompson, which mentioned Hooker: “I have had many discussions with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies  the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his belief that CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent.” (source)

He had to invoke whistleblower protection and turned extensive agency files over to Congress. He said that for the past decade, his superiors have pressured him and his fellow scientists to lie and manipulate data to conceal a causal link between vaccines and brain injuries, including autism.

In addition to these, there are countless other concerns involving vaccines, which is precisely why more and more parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children.

For a more in-depth look into this topic, you can read this heavily sourced article we published about it, but keep in mind that more information is always coming to light, even since we published this one:

The Top 6 Reasons Why More and More Parents Are Choosing Not To Vaccinate Their Children

The World Mercury Project $100,000 Challenge & The Livestream

The World Mercury Project’s mission is to raise public awareness of the sources and dangers of mercury, help treat those who have been personally affected by mercury exposure, and to push for safe and responsible removal of mercury in all consumer products and industrial processes.

You can view the full press conference on the World Mercury Project Facebook Page.

“On the occasion of our announcement of the World Mercury Project’s $100K challenge, we want to address America’s reporters, journalists, columnists, editors, network anchors, on-air doctors and news division producers….

Despite the cascade of recent science confirming that thimerosal is a potent neurotoxin that damages children’s brains, the American media has fiercely defended the orthodoxy that mercury-based vaccines are safe. We believe that even a meagre effort at homework will expose that contention as unsupported by science. In just the past month, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) review confirmed thimerosal’s profound neurotoxicity and a Yale University study connected vaccines to neurological illnesses including OCD, anorexia and tics…

Journalists, we have discovered—even science and health journalists—don’t always read the science! On the vaccine issues, many of them have let government and industry officials tell them what the science supposedly says. Instead of questioning, digging and investigating, journalists, too often, have taken the easy course of repeating the safety assurances of the pharmaceutical industry and the regulators at CDC’s Immunization Safety Office, which they have good reason to doubt.” 

As you can see, there are many issues to create awareness about, and the fact that mainstream media continues to ignore this type of thing is a big concern, and means we should probably be paying even more attention to it.

“It’s our hope that this challenge will elevate this important debate beyond name-calling and prompt a genuine examination of the relevant science. The American public is entitled to an honest, probing and vigorous discussion about this critical public health issue – a debate based on facts, not rooted in fear, or on blind faith in regulators and the pharmaceutical industry,” wrote Kennedy in a letter addressed to America’s reporters, journalists, columnists, editors, network anchors, on-air doctors and news division producers that was handed out at the press conference.

Can We Expect Peace Between Nations When Our Most Basic Relationships Fail?

To say that I’m sick of politics is like a chemo patient saying he feels under the weather. I’m dying here. I’ve pondered wearing earplugs to muffle the pundits. I’ve considered using Google glasses to program “Trump” and “Democrats” and “Republicans” out of my visual spectrum.

Because there’s one issue that must come before politics…

It’s marriage.

Our romantic relationships are the basic unit of civilization. Men and women have children and build families, which make up neighbourhoods, communities, cities, states, and nations. Basic logic, right?

And it takes civilized people to make a civilization. So how can we expect to have peaceful nations when our most basic relationships are downright crude? We have missions to Mars and particle colliders that are rumoured to open portals to new dimensions. But, when it comes to love… we’re dragging our knuckles on a flat Earth.

Our version of love is a cycle of insecurity

We can’t stand to be alone. But rather than learning to love our lives and find meaning alone, we place impossible standards for fulfillment on our lovers. We get a little security, and a lot of pleasure. But when the chemicals wear off, we’re left with the truth: We don’t know anything about our lovers.

And when we do get to know each other, we hate what we find. Then we split. But each split tears a thread in the fabric of our society, because family is our foundation.

We can thrust ourselves into heady political conversations, and pretend that our red (or blue) rage is going to build a better world. But those political solutions aren’t addressing the root cause of our pain. We just need to fix how we love first.

Foundations of love

Foundations are, well, foundational to success. So we pave them for our houses, we practice scales before learning a difficult piece of music, and we learn the fundamentals of math before going on to algebra and calculus. We know that we need a strong foundation for successful relationships, too. But who actually takes the time to build one?

Loving responsibly is hard. It seems outdated or religiously nonsensical by today’s standards (getting to know someone inside and out before you take them to bed?), but if you don’t have a strong foundation, you’ve got a house of cards. Just like every one of my previous relationships.

From age 12 I trained myself to objectify women by watching porn. And until my early twenties, I was more concerned about my next sexual fix than my career. I hooked up with girlfriends not because I wanted to love them with all my heart, but because they were my key to security and satisfaction — which I got, for a time. But the net result was an increasingly lonely, unfulfilled, and depressed version of me.

By the end of my last relationship, I seriously considered taking my own life. What was I doing wrong? After picking up reflective habits like journaling and meditation, I figured it out.

I wasn’t fulfilled alone. I was bored alone. And I was unsuccessful alone. But in my mind, relationships were magical things that would wash all the bad stuff away and make me happy — kind of like a drug. In reality, for each desire that I lacked on my own, like joy, or security, I was strangling my relationships with conditions.

I’d “love” a girl until I was no longer joyful with her, or until she bored me. Then, for each condition that she failed to meet — no one can be perfect 100% of the time — I withdrew my love from her, bit by bit. The withdrawals happened on her side, too.

By the end of my relationships, whether they were six-month flings or two-year engagements, the end was predictably uncivil. We abused each other with our language. We cheated on each other, and betrayed each other’s trust. We blamed each other on and on for what the other had failed to do. Almost sounds like our relationships with other countries…

But the real failure was in choosing each other as romantic partners. It was in pursuing love without getting to know each other’s values and character traits first — before we built a foundation. We gambled on placing our faith in each other. And, like most people, we lost. Big time.

Rather than castrating myself, or settling for an endless string of heartaches — somebody shoot me — I worked on the foundation of my next relationship. I worked on me.

I learned to lean into my insecurity

Instead of running for another girl when I got lonely, I leaned into my insecurity and learned more about me. I developed a prayer life and a relationship with God. And I stuck to my new habits of journaling and meditation.

Through mindfulness, I channeled my sexual desire into my goals and self improvement. I felt the urge to ogle gorgeous women, of course, and at 27, their beauty moves me now more than ever. But I trained myself to move in a positive direction, to express healthy emotions at a woman’s beauty — like gratitude, inspiration, and awe — instead of imagining how she could please me.

Then I took it a step further.

I disciplined myself to think of a woman’s future husband. Would he respect me for the way I was thinking about her? And then I’d think of my future wife. If I couldn’t expect myself to view other wives with dignity and respect, how could I expect that of other men in looking at mine?

In my new way of thinking, I shed my selfish ways and became a man — and a neighbour, and a lover. A year into the habit I became independent for the first time in my life. I discovered my writing career and found success in it. And I became a role model for other people.

My dramatic life change happened because I figured out how to harness my sexual desire in an uplifting way. And in learning how to love civilly, I became a functioning part of civilization. *But people still call me out for not voting…

How you can love civilly

The way we think about each other determines how we act: civil, or uncivil. So you’ve got to train yourself to think respectful and positive thoughts — especially when it comes to beautiful men and women.

No matter how much we hope, the magical love chemicals can’t erase reality: We either love each other with respect, or we don’t. And if we don’t, our relationships will degrade, and our families will degrade. And as our broken relationships pick up steam down the social gradient, our communities degrade, and our cities degrade. And if the cycle of uncivil romance continues, states and nations will degrade as well. It’s basic logic.

So, you can talk about what these morons in office are doing to feel important and keep you occupied… or you can do something that actually makes a difference. You can learn to love like a human-fucking-being. Pardon my crude language.

Learn to love for the long term. Build faith in yourself. Quit porn and casual sex. Become so joyful and inspired by your own life that you couldn’t imagine expecting anyone else to be responsible for your happiness. Channel your sexual desire into your highest self. Use those urges to remind yourself of the things you haven’t done yet to become the person you want to be. Direct that energy into a future you would admire, and a person you’d be proud of.

And when you’ve changed the way you live and think, you’ll change the way you love. You’ll love civilly.

By your example, you’ll inspire others to take the harder path and to love civilly themselves. And when enough people do that… I won’t ever have to hear another political pundit for as long as I shall live. And I’ll thank you.

 

 

 

5 Meditation Apps That Are Available Available Right Now For Download

We usually associate mindfulness with time away from technology, and it may seem counterintuitive to bring your phone into the equation if you’re trying to practice meditation, but as we all know, technology can offer more than just “likes” and “shares.” It really seems as though there is an app for everything these days, including helping you to disconnect, relax, and meditate.

If you struggle with finding time for this practice, clearing your head, or simply knowing what to do when it comes to meditation, then using an app could really help. People have been listening to guided meditations for years, and having a whole catalogue available to use at your fingertips seems like a no-brainer —no pun intended.

You may have been surprised to learn there is even one meditation app, but in fact, there are so many out there today that I had a difficult time narrowing them down to just five for this article. And that’s a wonderful thing. Enough people are starting to implement mindfulness and meditation into their day-to-day lives that there are tons of apps to accommodate each user.

Personally, I have a difficult time sticking to routine. I will plan to start doing something, be it meditation, walking, yoga, or whatever else, and I will just forget that I had this plan and end up working all day, not realizing that I missed the planned 15 minute meditation at lunchtime. By the time I realize it, it’s too late or I am out doing something else. The great thing about some of the meditation apps available today is that they have built-in timers and alarms to remind you of your mindfulness. These apps are quite handy, especially for anyone new to the world of meditation that doesn’t really know where to begin.

Without further adieu, I give you my top five meditation apps.

1. Headspace

Hailing from England, this app is endorsed by Silicon Valley execs and celebs alike, including Emma Watson. It has a simple, straightforward approach to meditation and will appeal to those who aren’t into the hippy-dippy, fluffy-wuffy stuff. Because let’s face it — it’s not for everyone. Not everyone who is interested in or practices meditation is spiritual. This app provides a “no-nonsense” approach for those who are simply looking for the benefits of lowered stress, better sleep, enhanced creativity, and overall improved well-being. This one does come with a price-tag of £9.99 per month, but it does feature a free 10-day trial so you can test it out before committing to buy. And for those who enjoy a little healthy competition, the app comes with a simple stat screen that tracks your progress and even compares it to your friends if they sign up too.

2. Calm

This app offers more than just meditation. Once you sign up, the sessions available to you include a 21-day program for general well-being and a week-long series dedicated to helping you sleep better. The app contains individual sessions ranging from 2-20 minutes, so if you have two minutes, you have time to meditate. (And if you don’t, you might want to re-evaluate your schedule!) There are also unguided sessions, which consist of music and/or nature sounds. This one costs £7.99 per month or £29.99 per year, but offers a 7-day trial so you can see if you like it or not.

3. Insight Timer

This is the top rated FREE meditation app for IOS and android, and for good reason! I just recently downloaded this one and so far I absolutely love it. It has the added element of community, as you are prompted to create an account and make a profile. There are over 1,800,000 meditators using this app and you can connect and communicate with all of them if you choose. The app also features a discussion and question forum, with a wide range of people from all over the world, both experienced and inexperienced, ready and eager to answer any questions you might have. After you have completed a meditation, the app will show you who else has completed it, which is a really cool and unique feature. This app utilizes some beautiful and calming sounds from various meditation bowls and bells.

4. Buddhify

This meditation app is not free but is inexpensive compared to most other subscription-based mindfulness apps, as it only asks for a one-time, up-front fee of £3.99 for iOS and £1.99 for Android. The included meditation exercises are organized by theme according to what you are up to or in the mood for. Whether you’re waking up, taking a break, waiting for something, feeling stressed out, or going through some emotional turmoil — Buddhify has got you covered. This app also has an area for you to ask questions from their team of experts, and allows you to track your progress with graphs and stats.

5. Smiling Mind

This app was developed for children or young people who struggle with handling and processing their emotions. Although anyone can use it, it is especially beneficial for beginners or those who are new to the world of mindfulness. If you want to introduce meditation to your children, this might be the app for you. Best of all, it is completely free. So you don’t have to worry about paying for something that may not be used too often.

Conclusion

There are so many more meditation apps available than these five. If none of these suit your needs, a quick online search is sure to reveal just what you’re looking for. While those that require a monthly subscription may seem expensive, especially in comparison to their free counterparts, I encourage you to ask yourself, can you really put a price on your physical and psychological well-being? Investing in ourselves is one of the best ways we can spend money. We are totally worth it!

Please, somebody play the race card: “like white on (Susan) Rice.”

Please, somebody play the race card: “like white on [Susan] Rice.”

And when will CNN say Susan Rice had to spy, to offset Russian spying?

By Jon Rappoport

CNN is already claiming the whole Susan Rice scandal is a tempest in a teapot, and the Trump team is exaggerating it to distract the public from…something. Fill in the blank yourself. For example: Trump isn’t actually the president, he cheated his way into the Oval Office, while acting as a secret agent for his handler, Vladimir Putin, who in turn was operating on behalf of aliens from Jupiter.

The Susan Rice scandal is out in the open. She, Obama’s national security advisor, led an effort to spy on legal phone calls the Trump team was making during the presidential campaign, in order to gain “intelligence on the enemy.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF) spoke with “Col. (Ret.) James Waurishuk, an NSC [National Security Council] veteran and former deputy director for intelligence at the U.S. Central Command.” Waurishuk said: “…many hands had to be involved throughout the Obama administration to launch such a political spying program…It’s unbelievable of [sic] the level and degree of the [Obama] administration to look for information on Donald Trump and his associates, his campaign team and his transition team. This is really, really serious stuff’.”

“Michael Doran, former NSC [National Security Council] senior director, told The DCNF Monday that ‘somebody blew a hole in the wall between national security secrets and partisan politics’. This ‘was a stream of information that was supposed to be hermetically sealed from politics and the Obama administration found a way to blow a hole in that wall’, he said.”

Yes, serious stuff. A felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Obama, of course, will have plausible deniability if the Susan Rice scandal blows up into a Watergate. He didn’t know. He didn’t order the spying. He was playing golf that day. Or any day.

And if a Congressional investigation of Rice and her antics reaches a fever pitch, somebody can play the race card. That’s always an option.

“If Rice were white, this never would have happened to her.”

“The Trump people are all over her like white on Rice.”

Meanwhile, CNN, in alternating segments, can say a) Rice and her people never spied on anybody, and b) everybody spies on everybody all the time, it’s not a big deal…and then some on-air goofball will add, “In fact, we here at CNN are spying—”

And the TV screen will go blank, then display colored stripes, then come back and the goofball will be gone, and an anchor will say, “We had a technical problem for a moment.”

But under no circumstances will CNN or MSNBC admit that the swaggering shoot-from-the-hip cowboy in the Oval Office was right when he lashed out and claimed the Obama administration was spying on him. Even if a few Obama people come out in the open and confess to the spying, those networks will insist Trump made a lucky guess, that’s all. It was all a coincidence.

And anyway, he’s not the real president, he’s a spy ultimately working for aliens from Jupiter; and on Jupiter, everyone is a racist.

And that will settle that.

St. Petersburg: Russia identifies Kyrgyz suicide bomber

Flags flew half mast in Russia as the country mourned at least 14 killed in the St. Petersburg suicide bombing [Xinhua]

The death toll from the St. Petersburg metro bombing rose overnight Tuesday to 14 with dozens dead as investigators identified a 22-year-old Kyrgyz male as the bomber.

Using closed circuit TV footage and DNA samples from human remains, security services were able to identify Akbarzhon Dzahilov as the suicide bomber who set off the explosion on the metro train between the

He was also identified as he left another explosive device in the Ploshchad Vosstaniya metro station. That bomb was later defused by security services.

Officials in Kyrgyzstan confirmed Dzahilov as the bomber and said he had moved from their territory to Russia where he became a Russian citizen.

The bombing was swiftly condemned by world leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel who called it a barbaric act.

In a press conference late Monday afternoon, European Union Foreign Policy chief Federica Mogherini pledged European support for Russia.

US President Donald Trump called Russian President Vladimir Putin and condemned the terrorist attack, pleding US support for the Kremlin as it pursued and brought terrorists to justice.
