A new paper finds that the active ingredients of the commonly used herbicides, RoundUp, Kamba and 2,4-D, (glyphosate, dicamba and 2,4-D, respectively), each alone cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations well below label application rates. The paper also finds that inert ingredients (surfactants) that are commonly used in some herbicide formulations and processed foods also cause antibiotic resistance. These authors first observed this antibiotic resistance in their paper published in in the American Society of Microbiology’s journal mBio in 2015, and this follow up study was conducted in order to identify which ingredients in herbicides were responsible.

The new study found an antibiotic resistant response was caused by both the tested surfactants, Tween80 and CMC. These both are also used as emulsifiers in foods like ice cream and in medicines, and both cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations allowed in food and food-grade products.

I want what I want and I want it now!

When we are children, we only know what we want. And we only know that we want it now. As we grow up, we begin to realize that we cannot always have what we want when we want it. That is, until now.

Charlotte Iserbyt’ s book, “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America,” states:

“The billions of dollars being spent by the federal government to destroy educational freedom must be halted, and that can only be done by getting American legislators to understand that the American people want to remain a free people, in charge of their own lives and the education of their children.”

I contend that the legislatures understand this, have understood it for years, but also understand that a free populace is a dangerous one, and their best interests are served by manipulating that populace to serve them. Freedom be damned. People that only know the gratification of immediate wants and desires with no long-term goals are people that can be controlled by the perceived ability to obtain whatever shiny object they desire at the moment. And public education is one of the main tools put in place to achieve that state of deliberate short-sightedness. Read the rest of this entry »

Barb’s note: For those still wondering why Bernie Sanders supported Hillary Clinton, and why Donald Trump is not who the alternative media thought he was, read on. The political circus is composed of a many-headed snake, designed to trick us into believing we have real choice.

Rising up against the Oligarchs does not equal socialism

By Jon Rappoport

No More Fake News

There are “people’s” groups all over the world who advocate the overthrow of the men at the top —the Oligarchs—who control nations.

These people’s groups want to install socialism as the answer to Oligarchy.

That’s preposterous.

The Oligarchs—bankers, mega-corporate CEOs, financiers, government leaders, intelligence agencies—collude to cut out competition so they can stand alone at the summit of the mountain. And they call this arrangement SOCIALISM. They PROMOTE socialism. They’ve staked out OWNERSHIP of socialism worldwide.

In other words, the “people’s” groups, who claim to be battling for a better world, are doing the Oligarchs’ bidding. Unconsciously, or on purpose.

Useful idiots. Read the rest of this entry »
