A hypothetical story about one middle class American caught in the crossfire of a crashing economy and false belief system.
Just when did I get here, and how? As I look out to see the chaos surrounding me, food lines circling the block, and rats scampering for scraps across the feet of those waiting patiently for a partially full belly, I remember what it was like before the crash. Before everything that I knew turned to dust and was carried away by the wind of change. A change so drastic that I didn’t even realize it was happening until it was too late to do anything about it. And I wonder… Just what was I thinking?
I worked hard most of my life and thought that I had it made. A good job, house of my own, brand new car, friends with whom I could grab a beer at the local hangout every now and then, and enough cash to make things comfortable. The American Dream. And then it happened… Read the rest of this entry »

Once again, the federal government proves itself as trustworthy as a two-headed rattler on methamphetamine.
“Yucca Mountain and surrounding lands were central in the lives of the Western Shoshone and Southern Paiute peoples, who shared them for religious ceremonies, resource uses, and social events; Yucca Mountain continues to be considered sacred by the Shoshone people living today.” (Wikipedia)
So sacred in fact, that the U.S. Government wants to place a nuclear waste dump smack dab in the middle of it. Yep. You heard me. Land sacred to the tribes, chock full of spent nuclear waste. How does that grab you?
“There is ongoing debate about whether Yucca Mountain is the nation’s best place for a nuclear waste repository. The DOE maintains that Yucca Mountain was selected because it was consistently ranked as the site that possessed the best technical and scientific characteristics to serve as a repository. The Department says that Yucca Mountain is a good place to store waste because the repository would be:
- In a desert location
- Isolated away from population centers (Las Vegas, the nearest metropolitan area, is 90 miles away)
- Secured 1,000 feet under the surface
- In a closed hydrologic basin
- Surrounded by federal land
- Protected by natural geologic barriers
- Protected by robust engineered barriers and a flexible design”
What could possibly go wrong? Let me count the ways:
- It is in an active earthquake area with at least 33 earthquake faults in and around the site.
- There are volcanic cinder cones near the site.
- It is above the aquifer, and any faults and fractures could cause that water to be contaminated with nuclear waste.
- There is hydrothermal activity at the site.
And this is the best site that they could think of? The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) hasn’t made a final decision yet, but this site is the only player in contention. Read the rest of this entry »
The story is anchored by a working-class, single Mother on a hunt to uncover the cause of her son’s mysterious illness. Interwoven are the stories of an Organic farmer, the CEO of a biotechnology corporation, two Scientists on the verge of a major discovery, and an ex-Cop caught in the middle of it all.
It took filmmakers, Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister-Jones, over 7 years to get the first narrative film, “CONSUMED,” off the ground that tackles the subject of GMOs. Everybody told them they couldn’t do it but they went ahead and made it anyway. They were passionate to expose the truth behind GMOs and the impact they are having on people and the environment.

In the face of mounting evidence linking vaccines to autism, the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC’s) response is to stand firm and deny the facts. This is a pathologically narcissistic approach to managing the problem, as briefly but accurately described in the following quote:
Here are the three main ways we lie to ourselves:
We minimize the damage we’ve done
We rationalize our actions
We justify ourselves in doing them.
Through these lies we distort reality as we perceive it, we redefine the meaning of what we do, and we adjust what we consider to be right and wrong, in an escalating fashion. Ultimately, any act, no matter how hideous, can be carried out once we have developed the necessary level of denial…. (The Three Horsemen of Denial)
So, keeping this in mind, understand that no matter what studies are done showing vaccine harm, no matter if your child collapses immediately after receiving a vaccine, the CDC will never admit vaccine culpability. It is not in the agency’s nature or best interests of the pharmaceutical industry which controls it to do so.
…no links have been found between any vaccine ingredients and ASD [autism]. (CDC)
Watch Trace Amounts below to discover the facts regarding the synergistic toxicity of aluminum and mercury in vaccines and the blatant denial of government “authorities” that such a causal relationship to the increasing reports of autism and their correlation to the ever-increasing amounts of vaccines given to both children and adults exists. We all need to know this and not just take the jab whenever we are told, trusting that the medical cartel has our best interests at heart.
