Some People Are Holding Grudges Against You For Things They Did To You | I Heart Intelligence.com

Some People Are Holding Grudges Against You For Things They Did To You | I Heart Intelligence.com

Holding grudges is ultimately a toxic habit. There’s a quote about this I like: “Holding a grudge is like drinking a poison and expecting the other person to get sick.”
When someone holds a grudge, it isn’t good for them. But it’s also of no consequence to you, especially if they’re holding a grudge for the wrong reason.

Some people will hold a grudge against you for something that they did.

They’ll hold a grudge against you for the way you reacted to their wrong-doing, whether you blew up at them or let it slide. If you blew up, they might hold a grudge for your aggression. If you let it go, they may hold a grudge against you for not feeding the fire they wanted to start.

The Last Time There Was This Much CO2, Trees Grew at the South Pole

The Last Time There Was This Much CO2, Trees Grew at the South Pole

Distressingly, another study revealed that melting permafrost across the Arctic could now be releasing 12 times as much nitrous oxide as previously thought. Nitrous oxide is an extremely powerful greenhouse gas, 300 times more potent than carbon dioxide, and can remain in the atmosphere for 114 years.

Recent research shows that Canada’s Arctic is now the warmest it has been in 10,000 years, and the temperatures are continuing to climb. Duane Froese, a professor at the University of Alberta and a co-author of the recent study on the topic, told the CBC,

“I would guess we’re getting back over 100,000 years since we’ve seen temperatures at least this warm.”

FDA Repays Industry by Rushing Risky Drugs to Market — ProPublica

FDA Repays Industry by Rushing Risky Drugs to Market — ProPublica

The FDA’s growing emphasis on speed has come at the urging of both patient advocacy groups and industry, which began in 1992 to contribute to the salaries of the agency’s drug reviewers in exchange for time limits on reviews. In 2017, pharma paid 75 percent — or $905 million — of the agency’s scientific review budgets for branded and generic drugs, compared to 27 percent in 1993.

“The virginity was lost in ’92,” said Dr. Jerry Avorn, a professor at Harvard Medical School. “Once you have that paying relationship, it creates a dynamic that’s not a healthy one.”

Industry also sways the FDA through a less direct financial route. Many of the physicians, caregivers, and other witnesses before FDA advisory panels that evaluate drugs receive consulting fees, expense payments, or other remuneration from pharma companies.

The FBI, which is investigating the three deaths, said further toxicology results on the Americans could take up to 30 days.

Since news of the deaths was reported, families have shared similar stories of their relatives mysteriously dying while staying at resorts in the Dominican Republic.

At least two died after taking a drink from minibars, families said.

At least half a dozen people have reported abruptly falling ill while staying at resorts in the Dominican Republic. All of them said they stayed at Bahia Principe properties

Pompeo Declares War (Again). This Time on Her Majesty’s Opposition – Astute News

Foreign interference in other people’s elections is rightly abhorred by all who care about national sovereignty and the principle of non-interference in other people’s internal affairs.

More so surely when the country in question is not just your ally but, as expressed repeatedly by US President Donald Trump on his recent state visit to the UK, your closest ally with whom you are in a “special relationship.”

Yet as the president plighted his troth before the Queen in Buckingham Palace last week his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was secretly pledging to US ‘Jewish leaders’ that he planned action to stop the leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn PC MP ever coming to power. A blatant, brazen and wholly illegal intention to subvert British democracy. It doesn’t get much bigger than that.

If the US does not like foreign interference in US elections and affairs, then it may want to stop interfering in other nations elections and affairs.

When America had an open prison – the story of Kenyon Scudder and his ‘prison without walls’

When America had an open prison – the story of Kenyon Scudder and his ‘prison without walls’

In a country with mass incarceration, horrific prison conditions and a penal system suffused with racism, some American prison reform activists wistfully look to Scandinavian institutions as beacons of humane prisons.

Many Scandinavian countries even have open prisons – minimum security institutions that rely less on force and more on trust. Some don’t even have a locked perimeter, and they emphasize rehabilitation and preparation for a return to society.

Back in the U.S., this might seem like an unattainable ideal.

But in California, nearly 80 years ago, there was an open prison.

As part of our work as human rights researchers who specialize in prisons, we were studying the United Nations resolution on open prisons, which was adopted in 1955 in Geneva. In a meeting prior to this resolution, penal experts discussed open prisons in the U.S., with the American delegate calling them “the contribution of this generation” to modern prison management.

Grenfell Tower Deaths: A Gross Failure of UK Government and Justice

Counter Information

Global Research, June 13, 2019

Survivors and families of the Grenfell Tower disaster in London, in 2017, in which 72 people were either burned to death or poisoned by lethally toxic fumes of hydrogen cyanide gas, are this week reported to have instructed lawyers to file one of the largest class actions for product liability in US history, against the manufacturers and suppliers of allegedly fire-accelerant cladding and insulation materials.

How is it then conceivable that the police and/ or Crown Prosecution Service, in Britain, have indicated that it is most unlikely that the current investigation will result in any prosecutions for either corporate manslaughter or gross criminal negligence against any architect, surveyor, building inspector, local authority, manufacturer or supplier who were involved in the external cladding contract for Grenfell Tower?

This would appear to be a scandal of very serious consequences and a gross failure not…

US to Jail 1,400 Immigrant Children at WWII Japanese Internment Site – Counter Information

Mass internment had been statutorily “legalized” by the Alien Registration Act of 1940—also known as the Smith Act. Months before the mass internment of Japanese-Americans began, the act was first used to prosecute 29 members of the Socialist Workers Party during the Minneapolis Sedition Trial of 1941. The trial ended less than eight weeks before Executive Order 9066 when 18 Trotskyists were sentenced to federal prison for opposing US intervention in World War II.

Fort Sill was the site of one of the many murders conducted by US Army prison guards during internment. The Encyclopedia of Japanese American Internment explains:

“On May 12, 1942, Kanesaburo Oshima, a barber from the island of Hawaii, climbed the outer barbed-wire fence in broad daylight reportedly shouting, ‘I want to go home!’ A guard barked out a warning, while another shot Oshima dead in front of his friends who had urged they be allowed to help him get down from the fence and return to the camp. Oshima was depressed, his friends revealed. He had been forced to leave his wife and 12 children who had little means of support.”

Resistance Versus The Flow

Trinity Esoterics | Daily Message ~ Thursday June 13, 2019

What is your favourite tool to move yourself out of resistance? It is very important to develop your go-to strategies to help shift you out of resistance because it is resistance that keeps you out of embracing the flow, the unfoldment, and receiving the love and support of the universe. Any time you are avoiding your own expansion you will experience discomfort.

So what are some ways to help you get back into the flow? You might try an affirmation that is soothing and supports forward movement, such as “God (or whatever being that resonates with you) is guiding me now” or “My forward movement is guided and supported”. “It is safe for me trust in the flow”.

You might simply decide to sit and love the part of you that is resistant until it is feeling better and ready to move. You might deepen your trust and faith through prayer or meditation. You might think back to other times when embracing the flow led you to wonderful results.

You might deliberately practice gratitude because you cannot be grateful and resistant at the same time. You might seek the beauty of nature or spending time in an activity that brings you joy. Dance! Sing! Move your body in ways that feel good. You might find an energetic cleansing helpful, such as immersing yourself in salt water or another healing modality you enjoy. There are so many methods to help you embrace getting back into the flow!

Don’t be afraid to experiment since every person is different. Take notes when you discover something that really helps so you can refer back to them because when you are uncomfortable you tend to forget what you know.

Pay attention to how you are resistant to yourself and replace your negative self talk with encouragement and love. You are at the core of everything so if you are busy rejecting yourself you will not be in a space to receive or move forward in an empowered way.

For every time you think you, or things around you are wrong ask, “What if they aren’t?” “What if they are serving a purpose?” “What if everything is divinely perfect exactly as it is?” “What if there is nothing for me to do but accept this now moment?” Pay attention to what you feel in your heart chakra. As you consider these new ideas you will almost always feel a release within your heart.

Whenever you stop digging your heels in you will feel relief because you will move from contraction to expansion. Ask for guidance. Be willing to be open. Take your surrender one now moment at a time, and know we are only a request away to help lead you through the unknown to where your soul is beckoning you to go. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young

“One ‘Aw, Shit’ Wipes Out a Thousand Attaboys”: Why Billionaire GOP Donor Jennifer Pritzker Is Abandoning Trump After Coming Out as Trans | Vanity Fair

In January she published another opinion piece, in The Washington Post. This time she expressed her disapproval of Trump and the Republican Party by issuing perhaps the only kind of warning they might heed: the threat to close her pocketbook. “I have hoped the Republican Party would reform from within and end its assault on the LGBTQ community. Yet the party continues to champion policies that marginalize me out of existence, define me as an eccentric character,” she wrote. “I ask Republicans to prioritize policies that improve our country for all Americans. When the GOP asks me to deliver six- or seven-figure contributions for the 2020 elections, my first response will be: why should I contribute to my own destruction?”

Even for a billionaire with a loyal family, transitioning is arduous. “I’ve had troubles and woes being transgender. Anyone who is does,” she says. “Anyone who’s transgender I think has like this inner compass. Whenever it is used it will point to true north. Femininity is my true north. I think I had these feelings going all the way back to when I was a child. I had a dual current. I had a male body, but I would gravitate to feminine things, like wanting to dress. In my youth, in a lot of places, it was against the law. And forget about going in the Army.”

For years Pritzker cross-dressed in private. “It was a vehicle, a tool, to take you to another state. I discovered that I really do think of myself inwardly as a female. I don’t deny biological reality. I was born with a male body. But the whole point of being transgender is that human beings are complex and multidimensional. It is possible to have a person who has the physical characteristics of one sex, but the emotions and psychological makeup of the other.”

Dr. Theresa Deisher Warning: Children Could Be Infected With Heavily Contaminated Human Fetal DNA In Vaccines

Dr. Theresa Deisher Warning: Children Could Be Infected With Heavily Contaminated Human Fetal DNA In Vaccines

Dr. Theresa Deisher Founder and Lead Scientist at Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute, whose mission is to educate the public about vaccine safety, as well as to pressure manufacturers to provide better and safer vaccines for the public.

She obtained her doctorate from Stanford University in Molecular and Cellular Physiology in 1990 and completed her post-doctoral work at the University of Washington

Merck’s MMR II vaccine (as well as the chickenpox, Pentacel ,and all Hep-A containing vaccines) is manufactured using human fetal cell lines and are heavily contaminated with human fetal DNA from the production process. Levels in our children can reach up to 5 ng/ml after vaccination, depending on the age, weight and blood volume of the child. That level is known to activate Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9), which can cause autoimmune attacks.

To illustrate the autoimmune capability of very small amounts of fetal DNA, consider this: labor is triggered by fetal DNA from the baby that builds up in the mother’s bloodstream, triggering a massive immune rejection of the baby. This is labor.

It works like this: fetal DNA fragments from a baby with about 300 base pairs in length are found in a pregnant mother’s serum. When they reach between 0.46– 5.08 ng/mL, they trigger labor via the TLR9 mechanism. The corresponding blood levels are 0.22 ng/ml and 3.12 ng/ml. The fetal DNA levels in a child after being injected with fetal-manufactured vaccines reach the same level that triggers autoimmune rejection of baby by mother.

Anyone who says that the fetal DNA contaminating our vaccines is harmless either does not know anything about immunity and Toll- like receptors or they are not telling the truth.

If fetal DNA can trigger labor (a naturally desired autoimmune reaction), then those same levels in vaccines can trigger autoimmunity in a child. Fragmented fetal DNA contained in vaccines is of similar size, ~215 base pairs.

This is direct biological evidence that fetal DNA contaminants in vaccines are not in low innocuous amounts. They are a very strong proinflammatory trigger.

Administration of fragments of human fetal (primitive) non-self DNA to a child could generate an immune response that would also cross-react with the child’s own DNA, since the contaminating DNA could have sections of overlap very similar to the child’s own DNA.

$4 Billion and Growing: U.S. Payouts for Vaccine Injuries and Deaths Keep Climbing • Children’s Health Defense

$4 Billion and Growing: U.S. Payouts for Vaccine Injuries and Deaths Keep Climbing • Children’s Health Defense

Over the vaccine court’s 30-year history, individuals and families have filed over 20,000 petitions for vaccine injury compensation. This month, even as 12% of filed petitions remained unadjudicated, the payouts crossed over the $4 billion threshold. This amount was awarded in response to barely a third (31% or 6,276) of the filed petitions. There is no telling how much more money the taxpayer-funded program might have shelled out if the court had not chosen to dismiss the remaining petitions (56%)—possibly doing so fraudulently in at least some cases.

Running the Gauntlet

Over the three decades, despite the stated intent to furnish an “accessible and efficient forum for individuals found to be injured by certain vaccines,” the NVICP has devolved into a protracted and litigious David-versus-Goliath battleground. The vaccine court, in actuality, is “not a court at all but…a consumer-funded government claims program that uses…employees of Health and Human Services (HHS), rather than judges to make decisions on compensation.” While government-funded Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers vigorously represent and defend the interests of HHS and vaccine manufacturers, the consumer-unfriendly system forces the vaccine-injured to meet an exceptionally high burden of proof. For dismissed claims, there is no assurance that the program will even cover attorneys’ fees and costs.

Children’s Health Defense recently called attention to a glaring example of the NVICP’s pro-industry and anti-vaccine-injured bias. In 2007 and 2008, DOJ attorneys exhibited “highly unethical and appallingly consequential official misconduct” during an Omnibus Autism Proceeding (OAP) orchestrated to determine the fate of 5,400 families who had filed claims for vaccine-induced autism. The potential value of the claims exceeded $100 billion—an amount that “would have bankrupted the [compensation] program many times over.” HHS’s Department of Justice lawyers, “under pressure” to deprive petitioners of their rightful relief, successfully achieved that aim through allegedly fraudulent means. In September 2018, Children’s Health Defense Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Rolf Hazlehurst (parent of one of the vaccine-injured children involved in the OAP) requested that the DOJ Inspector General and Congress investigate this fraud and obstruction of justice by HHS and DOJ officials.

Opinion -The Neocolonial Arrogance of the Kushner Plan

The Trump administration has made it clear that while the Israelis are to have ample input into deciding what happens in Palestine, the Palestinians themselves do not deserve to be consulted on their future: in their arrogance, Kushner, Friedman, Greenblatt, and their right-wing Israeli mentors know better. The tired routine of depriving Palestinians of agency, as Kushner’s plan does in a pointed and disrespectful way, has been tried for over a century. It did not work under the British Mandate, it did not work between 1948 and the rise of the Palestine Liberation Organization in the 1960s as the Arab regimes tried to impose their tutelage on them, and it has not worked under Israel’s military rule. All that the Palestinians have been allowed by their Israeli overlords, from Menachem Begin in 1977 until Benjamin Netanyahu today, are severely constrained and largely cosmetic degrees of “self-rule” under the Israeli thumb. This is manifestly all Kushner is willing to offer.

The status quo of military occupation and colonization that Kushner proposes to extend indefinitely is entirely at odds with decades of stated US policy, and with every principle of freedom, justice and equity the United States is supposed to stand for. It brings the United States into disrepute to allow its policy to be framed by such a trifling figure, acting under the influence of the retrograde ideas of the Israeli right.

While Jared Kushner’s hobnobbing with royalty in London may have turned his head, whether he knows it or not, the days of Lord Curzon and Lord Balfour are long gone, the colonial era is over. With the neocolonial plans they have concocted for the Palestinians, he and his Israeli allies are swimming against the tide of history.

Looking Inside the Fish Industry: Why Farmed Salmon is One of the Most Toxic ‘Junk Food’ We Can Put in Our Body

Looking Inside the Fish Industry: Why Farmed Salmon is One of the Most Toxic ‘Junk Food’ We Can Put in Our Body

Below the salmon farms of the Norwegian fjords is a layer of waste which is 15 meters high and as you can guess, it is teeming with bacteria, as well as drugs and pesticides. As these farms operate in open water, the whole seafloor has been destroyed, and the pollution that is created by these farms is not contained. A salmon far can hold about 2 million fish in fairly small space and as a result of these crowded conditions disease among the fish is inevitable.

To stave off diseases, different pesticides are used, and there is no doubt that eating this fish means that you are also eating these pesticides.

One toxicologist, named Jerome Ruzzin, has confirmed some of the claims made by Oddekalv. Testing some different food groups sold in Norway for toxins, Ruzzin has discovered that farmed salmon contains the greatest amount of toxins of every other fish, and to an extremely large degree. Also, the farmed salmon was five times more toxic than any other food product which was tested.

President Trump promised he wouldn’t allow the CIA to use spies against North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un after reports surfaced that Kim’s half brother had been a U.S. intelligence asset before he was assassinated in Malaysia.

Kim Jong Nam was killed in February 2017 — allegedly while he was en route to meet a CIA contact — by two women who sprayed a nerve agent in his face. U.S. officials quickly placed the blame for the killing on North Korea.

First Genetically Engineered ‘Frankenfish’ Now in US

This is the first time a genetically modified food animal will be raised and sold in the United States. A company spokesperson said AquaBounty hopes to begin harvesting by late 2020, according to United Press International.

The salmon contain a spliced-in growth hormone gene that makes them grow up to five times faster, reaching market size in about 18 months instead of three years. It’s an experiment that poses a significant threat to the environment and natural fish stocks, according to a Purdue University computer model that tracked the effects of releasing just 60 “Frankenfish” into a population of 60,000. The model found there was a complete extinction of the normal fish in just 40 fish generations.

Other oddities with the “Frankenfish” studies that were pooh-poohed by the FDA include one that showed that when there was insufficient food, the “Frankenfish” went berserk, became cannibals and began attacking and killing the other fish — both GE and natural.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The constant rains this spring are leaving some Ohio farmers wondering whether they’ll be able to plant any crops this year.

Just one-third of Ohio’s corn crop had been planted as of a week ago. In normal years, farmers in the state would have nearly all of their corn fields planted.

Soybean planting also is way behind because of the wet weather.

WASHINGTON — The House Oversight and Reform Committee advanced a resolution Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for withholding documents on the Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

The vote, 24-15 largely along party lines, came only hours after President Donald Trump asserted executive privilege to block access to the information. The Department of Justice announced the move in a letter to the committee’s chairman, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., just as the panel was preparing to vote on the resolution Wednesday morning. Only one Republican, Justin Amash of Michigan, voted in support of the measure.

A federal judge dealt a blow to President Donald Trump on Wednesday, ruling that two banks can hand over his financial documents in response to congressional subpoenas.

The Trump family and company sued Deutsche Bank and Capital One last month in an effort to block them from turning over financial documents sought by Congress. The House Intelligence and Financial Services committees had issued subpoenas to several banks as part of their investigations of alleged foreign influence on U.S. elections.

In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos said he disagrees with the arguments from the Trump family attorneys that the subpoenas don’t have a legitimate legislative purpose.

Fluorescent Evergreen Glow Tells When Trees Are Taking Up Carbon | Sierra Club

Fluorescent Evergreen Glow Tells When Trees Are Taking Up Carbon | Sierra Club

Decades ago, researchers realized that chlorophyll gives off a tiny, difficult-to-detect fluorescent glow. When sunlight hits chlorophyll—the green pigment that produces energy in most plants—it bumps it into an excited energy state. When the chlorophyll returns to its normal state, it emits 2 to 4 percent of that energy as a photon, or light particle, in the red and far-red light wavelengths. The glow is called solar-induced fluorescence (SIF) and, though not visible to the naked eye, it can be picked up by spectrometers, sensitive instruments that detect wavelengths of light.

In 2011, researchers first used satellite data to measure plant fluorescence, but scientists are still figuring out what the glow actually means. “Because they’re always green, it’s harder to know when photosynthesis might ramp up and when it might ramp down in evergreens,” says Troy Magney of the California Institute of Technology and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, first author of the new study in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “Beyond that, the typical remote sensing techniques we use to look at evergreen species basically just measure the amount of reflected radiation in the near infrared and red spectrum, which really just tells us how much green stuff there is. But we really don’t know what that green stuff is doing. We have no idea when they start photosynthesis and how much carbon they take up.”

High Aluminum Levels Contaminate Brains of Autistic Children – The Weston A. Price Foundation

High Aluminum Levels Contaminate Brains of Autistic Children – The Weston A. Price Foundation

High concentrations of aluminum characterize the brains of autistic children, according to a 2018 study published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology.[1]

Researchers from Keele University in the U.K. examined brain tissue from deceased individuals with a diagnosis of autism, finding some of the highest values for aluminum in human brain tissue yet recorded. The research investigated brain tissue from ten donors, representing all donors available at the Autism Brain Bank, and a standout observation was the location of aluminum in primarily inflammatory, non-neuronal cells with evidence of these cells moving from blood and lymph into brain tissue.

Sources of ingested aluminum include infant formula, foods in aluminum packaging, and foods cooked in aluminum pans or foil. However, in general less than 1 percent of dietary aluminum is absorbed.[2]  A highly probable source of aluminum in the brains of autistic children is vaccines. A fully vaccinated child receives almost 5,000 mcg aluminum by 18 months of age.[3] The amount of aluminum in the eight doses given at the two-month baby check-up is 1,225 mcg.3 By contrast, the maximum allowable aluminum per day for intravenous feeding in children is 25 mcg.

Everyone always gets exactly what they need for evolution sake

Dear Ones, you are always, always being provided with exactly what you need for your expansion and evolution. If there is something you need to experience and someone else is not ready or willing to have that experience with you, another will come in to serve your growth.

You can rest assured if another is resistant to evolution it will never stall your own enlightenment journey. Their free will is always respected and supported, as is yours, and the universe will shift to provide you new circumstances that allow you to continue your own growth and expansion.

Do you see? Everyone is honoured in whatever choices they make, in a beautiful flow of love and support that is always shifting to meet everyone’s needs. Your desire for your own evolution is always heard and supported and can never be derailed by another’s lack of participation.

Sometimes souls will decide to break apart for a time to learn individually and then reconnect in the future.  In fact, there are times when that is the only way the next phase of growth can occur for one or both of the people. Again, this is part of the beautiful dance of the universe – souls lovingly moving together and moving apart, all depending on what is for the highest good of everyone involved. From this perspective you can see that love and expansion is at the heart of it all. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young

Court Awards $137,500 After 8 Vaccines Kills Infant In Just 12 Hours

Court Awards $137,500 After 8 Vaccines Kills Infant In Just 12 Hours

Kara Krause tragically lost her baby girl, Peyton, 12 hours after being injected with eight vaccines in 2008. Through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) and Special Master’s “Vaccine” Court, it was proven the DTaP, Hib, Hepatitis B, PCV, IPV, and Rotavirus vaccines killed her daughter. Kara describes her darling daughter, “She was a normal, happy, healthy baby. I still hear her little sounds so clearly. She was my first true love.”

Kara discloses her painful story below to educate others before they make a decision to vaccinate: “I’m hoping it will at least reach someone allowing them to do their own research and not rely on doctors alone.”

Kara: I lost my daughter Peyton at 6 weeks old, approximately 12 hours after receiving her two month vaccinations, when she was a month and 12 days old. She was given eight total vaccines, [DTaP/ IPV (Polio)/ Hep B (Pediarix), Pneumococcal conjugate (Prevnar), Hib, and Rotavirus (Rotateq)]. According to the autopsy report and medical examiner, her death was classified as “Sudden Unexplained Death in Infancy (SUDI).”

According to the autopsy report and medical examiner, her death was classified as “Sudden Unexplained Death in Infancy (SUDI).”

Almost two years after her death, I was told about the NVICP (National Vaccination Injury Compensation Program). This is a “non-fault” government-run program funded by a tax on the vaccines. It acts as an insurance policy to protect vaccine manufacturers from being sued for vaccination related deaths and injuries. Their cases go to trial as any other court cases, but they are overseen by a Special Master, not a jury. The Special Master hears both the victim and government’s arguments. If, and only if, proven scientific data or testimony (not a casual link or circumstance) is presented by the plaintiffs, the master then decides on the amount of compensation to be awarded to the victim or their family.

I was told by the lawyers who accepted Peyton’s case, (apparently VICP lawyers take very few of the cases submitted to them) that in order to be able to pursue a wrongful death or civil case, I had to go through the VICP process first. This was a complete lie. (I blame myself for not doing more research on the program.)

The VICP process took approximately 2-1/2 years. In that time, all my questions were answered. The medical experts found the evidence that proved that the DTaP, Hib, Hepatitis B, PCV, IPV and Rotavirus vaccines, were in fact, the cause of her death. I thought this was a great thing. I now had scientific proof, expert testimony, and a sum of money to be able pursue other suits, to bring awareness that vaccines actually do cause deaths. What I didn’t know, was filing with the VICP did not extend the statute of limitations (as I thought), in essence making it legally impossible to file for a wrongful death, medical malpractice, or any civil suit. But at least I had the medical evidence to educate others, right?? Instead what I’ve found is no one listens.

Germany was Defeated on the Eastern Front, Not Normandy – Astute News

Germany was Defeated on the Eastern Front, Not Normandy – Astute News

Germany’s mighty Wehrmacht, which included the Luftwaffe, was destroyed by Stalin’s Soviet Union. The Red Army claims to have destroyed 507 German divisions, 48,000 German tanks, 77,000 German aircraft, and 100 divisions of Axis troops allied to Germany from Italy, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and Finland.

Few Americans have ever heard of the Soviet Far East offensive of 1945, a huge operation that extended from Central Asia to Manchuria and the Pacific. At least 450,000 Japanese soldiers were killed, wounded or captured by the Red Army, 32% of Japan’s total wartime military losses. The Soviets were poised to invade Japan when the US struck it with two nuclear weapons.

Of Germany’s 10 million casualties in WWII, 75% were inflicted by the Red Army. The once mighty Luftwaffe was decimated over Russia. Almost all German military production went to supplying the 1,600 km Eastern Front where Germany’s elite forces were ground up in titanic battles like Kursk and Stalingrad that involved millions of soldiers.

Soviet forces lost upwards of 20 million men. Total US losses, including the Pacific, were one million. To Marshal Stalin, D-Day, the North African and Italian campaign were merely diversionary side-shows to tie down Axis forces while the Red Army pushed on to Berlin.

In India, “Horrid” Heat Wave

Climate Denial Crock of the Week

A stunning heat event in Asia that most Americans know nothing about.

I interviewed veteran Journalist Keith Schneider last summer after he had just returned from an extended visit to Asia, and India.

Washington Post:

NEW DELHI —When the temperature topped 120 degrees (49 Celsius), residents of the northern Indian city of Churu stoppedgoing outsideand authorities started hosing down the baking streets with water.

Churu — home to more than 100,000 people — has been the hottest place in India in recent days, part of a summer heat wave suffocating most of the country as temperatures rise above normal even for this sweltering time of year.

According toweather website El Doradoon Wednesday, five of the hottest 15 places on the planet over the previous 24 hours were in India or neighboring Pakistan. In Churu, the mercury hit 118 degrees, down from 122 degrees on Monday. That…

DDT’s Five-Day Invasion on Foreign Soil

Nel's New Day

Dictator Donald Trump (DDT) and his entourage—including the whole family whether they’re in government or not—have left Britain, probably with many signs of relief from his hosts. It was preceded by an odd occurrence, even odd for DDT, when he wandered into a Virginia megachurch from the golf course. After praying for DDT, Pastor David Platt wrote a quasi-apology for his actions to church members who were “hurt” by Platt’s decision. He stated that he was not endorsing DDT, his policies, or his party. DDT stood on the stage during the prayer and then walked off without any comment. The day before the service, Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son, had called for Sunday to be a “Special Day of Prayer for the President.” The White House issued a statement that DDT had gone to pray for the Virginia Beach shooting victims, but no mention was made of…

How To Get Rid Of Tapeworms In Humans Naturally – David Wolfe

How To Get Rid Of Tapeworms In Humans Naturally – David Wolfe Shop

Raw fish, in its various forms, is becoming increasingly popular as a delicacy. According to food safety experts (3), this is leading to a rise in tapeworm infections.

This topic received a lot of attention when a Californian patient (yes, California in the United States – parasites are not just a third-world occurrence!) arrived at a hospital with a 1.7-meter tapeworm that had come out of him.

The patient, who had been complaining of abdominal pain for a while, had a bout of bloody diarrhea one day. While on the toilet, he alarmingly noticed something that looked intestinal hanging out of him. As the object continued to come out of him, he feared the worst, thinking his intestines were falling out.

But when the object was fully out of his body, it began moving.
Doctors eventually deduced that the tapeworm entered the patient’s body by way of his daily sushi intake.

When you eat uncooked fish (and other types of meat, although most people are sane enough to not eat raw beef or chicken), you run the risk of ingesting tapeworm larvae that has embedded itself into the meat. (4)

More than 2,000 infected with Ebola in Congo as outbreak intensifies | CBC News

The number of cases of Ebola in eastern Congo has passed 2,000, government figures show, as the rate of new cases tripled and containment efforts faltered in the remote, unstable region.

Local mistrust of health workers and attacks on Ebola clinics by armed militias have contributed to an acceleration in what is now the second-worst outbreak of the virus on record.

The outbreak reached 1,000 cases in March, more than seven months after it was first detected in August last year. It took less than three more months to reach 2,000, according to Congo’s health ministry and aid agency figures. More than 1,300 have died.

Natural Supports

There are so many supports in place to help you navigate changing energies. The sun will cleanse, heal, and nourish you. Salt is a wonderful cleansing element both for your body (submerge your body in salt water) and for your living space (sprinkle around your space and vacuum up and dispose after you intuitively feel it has done its job). The earth will ground and balance you.

The synergistic relationship between you and the natural elements around you has always been in place in order to assure your success. Embracing the supports that are there to serve you moves you through your own evolution with much greater comfort and ease. Sometimes the simplest methods are the most effective, and taking advantage of the loving support your environment wishes to provide you is actively choosing to be a wise and willing part of the whole. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young

Record number of undocumented immigrants flooded the southern border in May

Border Patrol officers encountered more than 144,000 undocumented immigrants at the southwest border in May, the largest monthly total in 13 years, officials said Wednesday.

More than 132,000 were stopped while crossing the border illegally; the rest presented themselves at legal ports of entry, Customs and Border Protection officials said.

May marked the third month in a row that more than 100,000 immigrants were taken into custody at the border amid a surge of migrants heading north in large groups from the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

This is going to get MUCH WORSE as climate change due to ignored and denied global warming acclerates.

No matter what Mexico or the US does, this will eventually overwhelm all efforts to ‘contain’ or coral climate change refugees.

Oakland, California, decriminalizes magic mushrooms and peyote

Oakland, California, decriminalizes magic mushrooms and peyote

SAN FRANCISCO – First pot, now ‘shrooms. Oakland City Council in California on Tuesday voted unanimously to decriminalize hallucinogenic fungi, otherwise known as “magic mushrooms.”

The vote makes Oakland the second U.S. city to decriminalize the natural hallucinogens after Denver decriminalized them on May 8.

The city council’s vote directed law enforcement to cease investigating and prosecuting individuals for using or possessing drugs sourced from plants, cacti and – most commonly – mushrooms that contain the hallucinogen psilocybin.

Are You Good Enough?

There is a pervasive belief that if you are good enough you gain favour. If you are a good enough person, you will please God. If you work long and hard enough you will have abundance. If you are good enough, fortune will shine on you.

This is old conditioning, Dear Ones, and not valid at all. The problem with this thinking is twofold. First, it is keeping you in troubleshooting mode, always looking for all the ways you are not good enough. This creates a negative focus, which leads to low self esteem and a lack of self love and acceptance.

Second, it is trying to live up to standards that are undefined. What is good enough? When have you worked hard enough? This belief system keeps you trying to get somewhere but never quite arriving. It keeps you out of alignment and out of receiving the love, acceptance, and abundance that is your birthright.

The reason why all of this is faulty is because the basis of these old beliefs is conditional love. There has never been a time that you have had to gain the favour of anyone. As a beloved individuated aspect of Source, there has never been a time that you were not good enough. We love, accept, and celebrate you in your divine perfection, unconditionally, exactly as you are.

While we understand people use such thinking as a means of self improvement, how are you improving if you are never allowing yourselves to arrive? So many of you are beautiful beings of love and yet perceive yourselves as not being loving at all. We urge you to start to see yourself in your truth and beauty.

Celebrate your successes. See all the ways you are kind, loving, mindful, sensitive, and caring. Embrace the goodness that you already are! You will get much farther watering the flowers of your soul than you will looking for weeds. It is by allowing yourself to acknowledge your truth and your innate goodness that you will shift into the acceptance of the supports, abundance, and adventures that are just waiting for you to experience and finally shine in your full potential. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young

Heartburn drugs linked to fatal heart and kidney disease, stomach cancer – Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

Heartburn drugs linked to fatal heart and kidney disease, stomach cancer – Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

Extended use of popular drugs to treat heartburn, ulcers and acid reflux has been associated with an increased risk of premature death. However, little has been known about the specific causes of death attributed to the drugs.

Now, a study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Veterans Affairs St. Louis Health Care System has linked long-term use of such drugs — called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) — to fatal cases of cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and upper gastrointestinal cancer.

More than 15 million Americans have prescriptions for PPIs. Further, many millions more purchase the drugs over the counter and take them without being under a doctor’s care and often indefinitely.

The researchers also found that such risk increases with the duration of PPI use, even when the drugs are taken at low doses.

The study is published online May 30 in the journal The BMJ.

This Wasn’t Supposed To Happen: U.S. Employment Growth Just Plunged To The Lowest Level In 9 Years

If the 5% US tariff on all goods from Mexico takes effect and is maintained, more than 400,000 jobs in the United States could be lost, an analysis released this week found.

The tariffs on Mexico, set to go in effect on Monday, would cost Texas alone more than 117,000 jobs, according to the analysis by The Perryman Group, an economic consulting firm. Texas is Mexico’s largest export market, making the two economies closely intertwined.

And the truth is that those numbers could actually be on the low side.

According to Marc Thiessen, a trade war with Mexico would literally put millions of U.S. jobs at risk…
