The Peoples of the world are in trouble!!!

This article is about the state of freedoms in England. It is the same in Canada, the United States, all the rest of the EU. All of us are losing our rights.

According to The Tax-Payers’ Alliance, the total cost, to The United Kingdom, of membership of The European Union - business regulations, VAT & other EU Tax, higher food prices, enforcing EU rules, administration, miscellaneous .. is £1 billion every three days :

£1,000,000,000 EVERY THREE DAYS

In return we have completely, or largely - and soon to be completely - lost control, to the E.U., of our
legal system ... economy ... local government ... immigration ... coastal controls ... business regulations ... tax ... foreign policy ... defence ... social, health and education policy .... NATIONAL DEMOCRACY : NATIONAL SOVEREIGNITY

Thanks to the EU Common Fisheries Policy, in 2007, alone, in the North Sea, alone, and considering three species of fish, alone,
23,600 tonnes of cod : 31,048 tonnes of haddock ; 6,000 tons of whiting ... were thrown back, dead, into the sea : 60,000 tonnes on the sea bed

On All-Fools Day, 2011, EU rules, ALREADY PASSED, come into force with regard to our health freedoms : the targets are herbal remedies, vitamin/mineral supplements, essential oils, organic foods : everything in the natural section which is a threat to the Pharma/GM disease machine.

These were drawn up by European Commission bureaucrats, who have a very cosy relationship with the pharmaceutical industry, and The Medicines & Healthcare products Regulations Agency (MHRA).

In return for passing legislation designed to destroy all opposition to the pharma-cartel, the EC/EU bureaucrats benefit from the “revolving door” route to well-paid positions within the pharmaceutical industry.

As for the MHRA .... “Despite being a department of the British Government, the MHRA is funded entirely by pharmaceutical companies and a percentage of staff and executives come from the pharmaceutical industry. ...

In 2001, the American Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) embarked upon a campaign named ‘Operation Cure All’ aimed at wiping out the producers and retailers of any kind of herbal treatments for cancer. The FDA & MHRA work in close collaboration.” Martin J Walker

The MHRA is the largest pharmaceutically-funded enforcement and policing agency in Europe.
If you were part of the problem, at the last election, i.e. if you voted Lib/Lab/Con OR DID NOT VOTE AT ALL now is the time to wake up.

The passing of Doug Dales

Too steep he paid a price poor prince
now dead and gone beyond us far.
How much I miss your honesty and love.
The twinkle in your eye meant much more.

But you are gone now away for ever and a day
into places we have yet to see or feel or know.
I'm not so far behind so it will not be too long
till we put our heads together and sing another song

I cannot seem to catch my breath
winds blowing hard against my every leaf.
There is not place outside to find a niche.
What should I feel when pummeled toward my death.

Five months ago I rose and saw a great adventure
before my eyes. An energy I love awoken
A goal to reach, a new rider to strut his stuff;
A dear friend, with really such a lively brain.

No easy task I undertook for age and confused temperament :
best just to say both are old and certainly I have a bent.
Some tinged with barbs as hard as barbs can be
but not with malice but with love laid where not all see

Not all saw that and so I grieve far more than most
My health has disappeared and cancers found me tasty
The rider now like me is fighting but far more risky.
The adventure taken back for others to be host.

And that is only part of all that tilts my bowler.
I struggle now to find the path to bring back health.
Years now I know good healing with herbs and homeopathy
That stand out in my mind gainst Chemo and XRay killer.

I listen to the folks I trust and place down all the questions
and sit with doctors who have figures to their benefit.
So I’ve changed my food and take supplements too
And mix up things that look like goo.

My last big chore is to give up the weed.
Addiction is a potent greedy freak
I’m coming close to the devil now
And soon I'll regain my strong know how.

And I sit alone in my dark third floor
With my solitaire and my mind out the door’
I can’t seem to find my feet on the floor
Just a mind caught nowhere and nowhere to go.

It’s the lot of my life to live in between
A mind in the wind with the leaves all akilter
But I try my best to stand up in the storm
I’m not much for quitting. I can take lots more.

My Life wends its way.

My life wends its way. I am a leaf on a breezy street.

The movie is shot. The director is in the hospital.

I took his seat and finished his last four days

full of sadness for a friend I love: my heart bleeds.

A few days ago leaving the studio for a weekend

we smiled and allowed that the filming was great.

We will not fail was in our eyes and I full of joy,

to help a new director; someone worthy to create.

I am with hope for all is not lost until the last breath out.

We are strong creatures and within is all the power

and us the masters to love ourselves back to health.

I am with hope both for my friend Doug and myself.

TIme tells all!!!

Lymphoma! Hodgkin’s! the gentle worried woman said
And followed with, “But you are far from dead.”
She waited calmly to feel my first reply
It was not news to me, not really, I know not why.

Encouraged by my tranquil unaltered state
She went on to describe my newfound fate
Chemo, radiation, who knows what for sure
She has a friend who’s studied, knows the cure

Relax and wait until this new sage can examine
There is much time for this woe is not like famine
It sits inside my right armpit that finds me
A royal cushion ready to move throughout its sea.

The news has passed to all who counsel this happy soul
And I, the keeper, shuttered eyes like some forest troll
Will wait to hear the sure fire paths
Of all the pundits who can kill this wrath.

Soon, quite soon I’ll choose the allies in this game
Will I choose right or wrong? Will I ever be the same.
Time is time and moves at its own pace.
There is always an end in the human race.

Karma plays its hand and always will
Tomorrow is day one of our fine film
Hello October is all ready, the first shot due.
My work some done, will now begin anew.

I am inundated with life!!!

I am inundated with life and its all encompassing needs
I am just another ear but my mouth just feeds
Oracles have an easier time and are more sublime
But I do my best and try to live in rhyme

So the tests were done and my arm now waits
Perhaps its how life lives with the fates
What is time but a passing self born fantasy
For in each second all life takes its eternity

A week to go and the film starts shooting
And now the urgency of weeks ago are real
And those who did not understand the minutes
Now have seconds to discover my realities

I rise to all the questions from others and myself
For is not life just a parade of waiting on a shelf
Karma plays loud and answers are revealed
Was it ever otherwise? We are all the same breed.

Doctor surgeon save me now before I come to greater harm.
Take the tests; more ultrasound, the needle biopsy too.
You felt the lumps, called for a mammogram and last of all
yes last of all, the Kat scan to see me through and through.

My weight loss lends to make me know something is amiss
Is it infection or is it cancer is what you must decide.
And then its up to me to hear the path you wish to take
And me decide just how to move what vehicle I’ll ride.

Will I say yes if you say go the route of surgery?
Take the chemo, radiation just like most would do.
Or should I go a natural way, right food and actions clear
And know that path is open and it too can be true..

There are no guarantees in life.
No secret ways of knowing.
But I am master of my path.
Of which way I’ll be going.

We mortals grasp at every straw, maybe it is nothing at all,
The Cat scan says my heart is fine so’re my lungs and liver
Just the armpit finds me doc and makes me a strong believer
Except I don’t pray or maybe I do a sinner hoping to save a fall.

Still more tests to go and they will tell me more
so I live on the edge of an apartment ledge
hoping the wind will be just a breeze
and the worst I will have is the occasional sneeze.

I’ll stay off the coffee and drink ginger tea
Alter the foods that go into me
Guard my body with a mind more sane
Think better thoughts and take care of me.

A leaf needs no strength to live through a storm
It is only a matter of relaxing to the blow.
So it is with all things come to pass
It is not what but how we bend gently.

Yes the biopsy is next with the mammogram and the ultrasound.
There is not telling what the seed of the discomfort is,
enough to know it rests isolated in its space
bigger yes, but not invasive to other parts as yet.

The herbalist said that after diagnosis she can tell
how to fit into a healing shell.
So all wait patiently to hear the longish name,
translated into plants to end the game.

Calmness, grace and inner strength

A way of being to enfold the form

As simple as breathing out

Life is what its all about.

A busy life explained.

For the last two months I have been busy preparing a feature film to begin shooting on October 9th. Hello October is a romantic comedy: A young man’s world is turned upside down when a pregnant stranger shows up at his door.

It is a challenge to produce.

I have other challenges too and here are a few poems that tell you about them.

My Armpit Finds Me Doc.

My armpit finds me Doc. Its found me for a month.
What just seemed sore muscles has popped up as a lump
Mushroom head, really quite hard, big as a loony. Yes I’m sure.
It moves about protecting itself way up high when I am standing;
Tucked under the flesh at the edge of my breast when I’m lying.
Its got good places for comfort and ease cares,for itself if you please .
My mind is aware as I am the creator, the prime generator, the progenitor.

My armpit finds me Doc. Lung x-rays clear, ultra sound says its real.
You’ve felt it there, my bloods gone for testing you wait to find out.
The surgeon’s stood by to read the results, soften me to what he thinks best.
My homeopath tested a hundred ideas but right opines it rests just there.
And so I must wait as the story goes on; waiting for the notes of some new song.
Friends hope the best and fear things worse and so do I, the mind is a curse.
But life is life and has its own mind. All things in time and time is not mine.

Doctor Surgeon Save Me Now.

Doctor surgeon save me now before I come to greater harm.
Take the tests; more ultrasound, the needle biopsy too.
You felt the lumps, called for a mammogram and last of all
yes last of all, the Kat scan to see me through and through.

My weight loss lends to make me know something is amiss
Is it infection or is it cancer is what you must decide.
And then its up to me to hear the path you wish to take
And me decide just how to move what vehicle I’ll ride.

Will I say yes if you say go the route of surgery?
Take the chemo, radiation just like most would do.
Or should I go a natural way, right food and actions clear
And know that path is open and it too can be true..

There are no guarantees in life.
No secret ways of knowing.
But I am master of my path.
Of which way I am going.

I Wander The Green Grass.

I wander the green grass just freshly mowed.
I see the piles of clippings waiting to be moved.
Some fields away I hear a tracker doing fall work
The Bluejays squawk; the hummingbirds fight.

I sense the world is right and fall will soon be here
The leaves will turn their awesome gaudy colours
The grass go brown and the wind die down
And then the snows; when all is white.

To hear and see the present is what is in my life
To feel and think of things right now this instant
Not wonder what is past or what is yet to come
For in each moment is the life worth living.

Britain's Parliament has struck for Peoples right to choose

Government defends right to homeopathy on the NHS

26 July 2010

By Ian Quinn (Pulse Today)

The Government has strongly rejected demands by MPs for the funding of homeopathy on the NHS to be withdrawn, claiming it would fly in the face of patient choice and local decision-making.

In its response to a report from the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, which issued a damning verdict on the practice and called for GPs to be barred from referring patients under the NHS, the Department of Heath said it would not be stepping in - despite MPs' concerns over the lack of evidence and regulation of homeopathic treatments.

MPs had called not only for doctors to be barred from referring patients to homeopathic hospitals or homeopaths, but for the MHRA to intervene and to apply the same standards of regulation as for medicines, which they said would remove any medical claim supporters of homeopathy had.

But in its response today the DH said: ‘It is not appropriate for the Department of Health to remove the right of PCTs to make these decisions on a case-by-case basis.'

‘Capital investment decisions in the NHS are planned and decided at local level. The commissioning plans of local PCTs set out the type of services that need to be provided and therefore drive decisions about the nature of new facilities needed, or the need to maintain, update or replace existing facilities.’

The committee had also called for an investigation into the cost of homeopathy to the NHS and for new research into the evidence-base for homeopathy, but this too was rejected.

MPs had wanted regulators to ‘remove any medical claim and any implied endorsement of efficacy by the MHRA’ by ensuring the same evidence of efficacy used to assess conventional medicines was used, but the Government said this would potentially deal a fatal blow to the homeopathy market and limit consumer choice.

‘Homeopathy has a long tradition in Europe and is a recognised and widely used system of medicine across the EU,’ it said.

‘The Government takes the view that consumers who choose to use homeopathic medicines should be fully informed about their purpose and assured that standards of quality and safety are maintained. If homeopathic medicines were not subject to any kind of regulatory control consumers would not have access to such information or assurances.'

'Conversely, if regulation was applied to homeopathic medicines as understood in the context of conventional pharmaceutical medicines, these products would have to be withdrawn from the market as medicines. This would constrain consumer choice and, more importantly, risk the introduction of unregulated, poor quality and potentially unsafe products on the market to satisfy consumer demand.’

However the campaign group Sense About Science hit out at the Department of Health's ruling.

'The Government has ignored the Committee’s detailed consideration of the licensing of homeopathic products as medicines,' it said in a statement.

'It has acknowledged that “there will be an assumption that if the NHS is offering homeopathic treatments then they will be efficacious” and that homeopathic products can be licensed with no requirement for evidence that they treat any condition at all. However, the Government has put forward a weak point about ‘patient choice’ instead of considering what to do about these problems. At a time when PCTs are reviewing expenditure on ineffective treatments, this is perverse.'

'We urge them to go back and give proper consideration to this part of the Committee’s report. In the meantime, we recommend a warning on the label of homeopathic products telling people that the product is licensed without any evidence that it works.'

So much for evidence-based government and healthcare decisions!

Brian Kaplan - London | 26 Jul 10

This is truly marvellous news - simply the most heartening thing I've read in PULSE for years.

The government's decision is a victory for liberty and democracy in this country and a slap in the face for those who would seek to thwart the rights of GPs to send patients to fully qualified doctors on the NHS who use homeopathic medicine.

Seems our personal freedoms are being usurped.

The Bitch is Back: Bill C-6 reincarnates as C-36

Dee Nicholson | July 11, 2010 at 11:24 am | Tags: Activism, Bill C-36, Canada, Canadians, choices, constitution, due process, education, freedom, health care, Health Freedom, justice, natural health, propaganda, Urgent Action, W.H.O. | Categories: Activism, Big Pharma, Bill C-36, Bill C-6, Codex Alimentarius, Corruption, Uncategorized | URL:

By Dee Nicholson

Battle-worn health freedom activists waited six months for the shoe to drop, knowing full well that at any moment, their latest nemesis, the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act called C-6, might reappear.

Last month, their impatience was rewarded, as Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq rose to introduce Bill C-36, complete with the same troublesome, rights-stomping provisions as in its momma. And of course, the same really, really nasty language making Canadians “subject to the dictates of foreign authorities”, the words that allow foreign committees (like trade groups) decide how we’re going to run things.

It’ll be their way, or the highway.

Witness the fact that the 106th US Congress voted to change American corporate tax law, not because it wanted to, but because it was ordered to – by the World Trade Organization. Now, if the WTO can yank the chains of the Yankees that easily, do we really think domestic Canadian laws are any less vulnerable?

There have been ten major trade agreements signed by Canada over the past sixteen years, and there are twelve more pending, including the “Free Trade Area of the Americas”. These trade obligations, signed eagerly by our successive governments, have Canada in shackles, and somehow, hardly anybody’s noticing.

Recently, master filmmaker Kevin P. Miller released a documentary showing Canadians how this has happened, in a dynamic retrospective leading to a dubious future: “A Question of Sovereignty” is now online for viewing at, and every red-blooded Canadian needs to see it, and now. It’s 23 minutes of jaw-dropping wakeup call.
Miller describes the film as “patriotic and sentimental” and I have to admit that it brings an uncomfortable lump to the throat as you watch our sovereignty being hijacked. But it also sets your couch on fire.

Miller’s take: “Quietly, over a period of many years, unconstitutional legislation encompassed in Bills C-51, C-6, and the current Bill C-36 have placed not only basic civil liberties and freedoms at risk, but Canada's national sovereignty as well. The film shares how entangling alliances with groups like the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, Codex Alimentarius, the United States and even multinational corporate interests have become so powerful that they literally threaten to make elected officials in Parliament irrelevant.”

I have to thank Kevin for saving me a whole lot of time explaining what’s going on, and let the film speak for itself, because it does. And it’s going to play an important role in how Canadian health freedom fighters will be approaching the nascent battle against Bill C-36, while proving especially valuable in rousing more Canadians from their sleepwalking state.

Take a moment to absorb the very real danger of Canada’s virtual absorption into a global trade network that hovers over this nation right now. Piece by piece, department by department, our self-rule is being eroded by obligations to committees where our vote doesn't matter. For example, at the World Trade Organization, Canada is one out of nearly 200 nations. One. None of the other members really give a rat’s behind what we want. Worse yet, if we insist on doing our own thing, we face sanctions, in some cases cross-industry trade sanctions of millions per day, or quitting and being viewed as anathema by all the other suckers in the group.

So, no sovereignty, no health freedom. No freedom guaranteed at all. That candle is going out, bit by bit, as the trade groups meet and decide what the whole group will do, and if our laws conflict, too bad, so sad for our laws. And our self-rule.

Meanwhile, there are massive collisions set to happen. All these contracts with all sorts of terms, and what happens when they start to need enforcing? Gridlock. And what do you need when you have gridlock? A traffic cop. Do you see the platform for global government being "necessitated into existence" by the ongoing commitments of our governments, no matter which party was in power? Commitments to trading. To profit. Not to people. To share wealth, meaning spread what we have across the whole slice of bread while they retain the loaf. This is what Harper meant at the G8 when he spoke of "shared prosperity".

And those were the exact words used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth at the UN this past week.

Bill C-36 swings the doors to Canada wide open to outside domination by foreign authorities that we will never vote for and who could not care less what we want. These are the same foreign authorities waiting, butter knife in hand, to spread the wealth, which really means to bring the world equal-opportunity poverty.

Without sovereignty, we have nothing, and Bill C-36 takes away a sizeable chunk of it with Codex looming, as well as a big pact with the EU, where the food regulations are just as bad as Codex already. You need to understand the depth and breadth of what Codex will do, and how our government is absolutely committed to going there. (See for full details on Codex, and read constitutional lawyer and health freedom advocate Shawn Buckley's analysis of Bill C-36 at|

Bear in mind that Health Canada, with C-36, is asking to be granted police and judicial powers, the right to be judge, jury and executioner at will, to impose fines and imprisonment, without recourse to courts or recompense. But we're supposed to be satisfied by the fact that they promise to call a judge for a warrant? These are the powers that Leona Aglukkaq says are necessary for her agency to "protect Canadians against hazardous consumer products".

The posts at show what sort of “protection” Canadians got from their government when Health Canada foisted that particular hazardous product on the population. Bear in mind, they did so at the advice of whom? The same WHO that's been exposed as being in a huge conflict of interest beneficial to Big Pharma for its re-jigging of the very definition of a pandemic in order to declare one, on the advice of people connected to Big Pharma, which made a gazillion dollars feeding the toxic stuff to people around the world, from which many people suffered severe health problems. People like the ones on that page.

This is the same Health Canada that is asking for quasi-judicial powers, to "protect Canadians from hazardous products".
Remember Leona Aglukkaq, cajoling the Senate with portents of babies dying from faulty crib and playpen designs, if Bill C-6 didn't pass? She's trotted that one out already again for its doppelganger, C-36.

Now, unfortunately for Aglukkaq, there are actual dead babies which would today in all likelihood be alive, were it not for Health Canada's following of foreign "suggestions" in the promotion of the largely-untested H1N1 vaccine to Canadians, with the full expectation of “collateral damage”. And this Minister wants us to believe that this agency could be trusted with police and judicial powers? This Minister wants us to believe that the agency honors the rights of Canadians, after the shameful raid against Dr. Eldon Dahl last year, holding his family at gunpoint for 11 hours because he sold some vitamins in a sting operation by the health police? Dahl had what looked to him like the G20 security force bash in his front door. This protects Canadians, how? In my humble opinion, it doesn’t.

Instead, it endangers the very fabric of our nation.

Thankfully, there is a new army being assembled against Health Canada’s assault on our sovereign right to health freedom, with the establishment of The National Health Federation (Canada). Its parent organization, the NHF (, is the world’s largest and oldest health freedom organization, with branches in nine nations and membership in thirty countries, and is a recognized International Non-Governmental Organization.

The move gives Canada, for the first time, standing as delegates to Codex Alimentarius with the right to speak to the committee, and to Canadians, the ability to speak truth to power. In addition, the organization’s international scope means that we speak with the voices of twenty-nine other nations behind us, sharing the same concerns. That’s more votes than Canada has at the WTO.

I am honored to be one of three Co-Executive Directors of the new NHF Canada, and am gleefully sharpening my teeth. My partners in crime are both heroines in health freedom: Marilyn Nelson, founder of Freedom of Choice in Health Care and veteran of decades of skirmishes with ministers of health; and Candace Hill, nutritionist, passionate educator, and master instigator of stuff happening. With us will be many of the health warriors from Canadians for Health Freedom who barraged the Senate last year with a demand they couldn’t refuse.

Bill C-36, the bitch, is back. We think that calls for neutering.

Hemp: a great plant vilified


The Marijuana Trick
Doug Yurchey – 2005

And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land. – Ezekiel 34/29

Where did the word 'marijuana' come from? In the mid 1930s, the M-word was created to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp you will read. The facts cited here, with references, are generally verifiable in the Encyclopaedia Britannica which was printed on hemp paper for 150 years:

* All schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s; Hemp Paper Reconsidered, Jack Frazier, 1974.

* It was LEGAL TO PAY TAXES WITH HEMP in America from 1631 until the early 1800s; LA Times, Aug. 12, 1981.

* REFUSING TO GROW HEMP in America during the 17th and 18th Centuries WAS AGAINST THE LAW! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow hemp from 1763 to 1769; Hemp in Colonial Virginia, G. M. Herdon.

* George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers GREW HEMP; Washington and Jefferson Diaries. Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from China to France then to America.

* Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America and it processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp. Napoleon wanted to cut off Moscow's export to England; Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer.

* For thousands of years, 90% of all ships' sails and rope were made from hemp. The word 'canvas' is Dutch for hemp; Webster's New World Dictionary.

* 80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.

* The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp; U.S. Government Archives.

* The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th Century; State Archives.

* Oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.

* Rembrandts, Gainsborough’s, Van Gogh’s as well as most early canvas paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.

* In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement such programs; Department of Agriculture

* Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935; Sherman Williams Paint Co. testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.

* Henry Ford's first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONTRUCTED FROM HEMP! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, 'grown from the soil,' had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel; Popular Mechanics, 1941.

* Hemp called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, Feb., 1938.

* Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article entitled 'The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.' It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

The following information comes directly from the United States Department of Agriculture's 1942 14-minute film encouraging and instructing 'patriotic American farmers' to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for the war effort:

'...(When) Grecian temples were new, hemp was already old in the service of mankind. For thousands of years, even then, this plant had been grown for cordage and cloth in China and elsewhere in the East. For centuries prior to about 1850, all the ships that sailed the western seas were rigged with hempen rope and sails. For the sailor, no less than the hangman, hemp was indispensable...

...Now with Philippine and East Indian sources of hemp in the hands of the Japanese...American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as well as of our industries...

...the Navy's rapidly dwindling reserves. When that is gone, American hemp will go on duty again; hemp for mooring ships; hemp for tow lines; hemp for tackle and gear; hemp for countless naval uses both on ship and shore. Just as in the days when Old Ironsides sailed the seas victorious with her hempen shrouds and hempen sails. Hemp for victory!'

Certified proof from the Library of Congress; found by the research of Jack Herer, refuting claims of other government agencies that the 1942 USDA film 'Hemp for Victory' did not exist.

Hemp cultivation and production do not harm the environment. The USDA Bulletin #404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp as wood with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution.

From Popular Mechanics, February 1938:
'It has a short growing season...It can be grown in any state...The long roots penetrate and break the soil to leave it in perfect condition for the next year's crop. The dense shock of leaves, 8 to 12 feet above the ground, chokes out weeds.

...hemp, this new crop can add immeasurably to American agriculture and industry.'

In the 1930s, innovations in farm machinery would have caused an industrial revolution when applied to hemp. This single resource could have created millions of new jobs generating thousands of quality products. Hemp, if not made illegal, would have brought America out of the Great Depression.

William Randolph Hearst (Citizen Kane) and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst's grandfather, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions because of hemp.

In 1937, DuPont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. DuPont's Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80% of DuPont's business.


Andrew Mellon became Hoover's Secretary of the Treasury and DuPont's primary investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

Secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons. Hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to go. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: 'marihuana' and pushed it into the consciousness of America.


A media blitz of 'yellow journalism' raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst's newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marihuana. The menace of marihuana made headlines. Readers learned that it was responsible for everything from car accidents to loose morality.

Films like 'Reefer Madness' (1936), 'Marihuana: Assassin of Youth' (1935) and 'Marihuana: The Devil's Weed' (1936) were propaganda designed by these industrialists to create an enemy. Their purpose was to gain public support so that anti-marihuana laws could be passed.

Examine the following quotes from 'The Burning Question' aka REEFER
*a violent narcotic.
*acts of shocking violence.
*incurable insanity.
*soul-destroying effects.
*under the influence of the drug he killed his entire family with an axe.
*more vicious, more deadly even than these soul-destroying drugs (heroin, cocaine) is the menace of marihuana!

Reefer Madness did not end with the usual 'the end.' The film concluded with these words plastered on the screen: TELL YOUR CHILDREN.

In the 1930s, people were very naive; even to the point of ignorance. The masses were like sheep waiting to be led by the few in power. They did not challenge authority. If the news was in print or on the radio, they believed it had to be true. They told their children and their children grew up to be the parents of the baby-boomers.

On April 14, 1937, the Prohibitive Marihuana Tax Law or the bill that outlawed hemp was directly brought to the House Ways and Means Committee. This committee is the only one that can introduce a bill to the House floor without it being debated by other committees. The Chairman of the Ways and Means, Robert Doughton, was a DuPont supporter. He insured that the bill would pass Congress.

Dr. James Woodward, a physician and attorney, testified too late on behalf of the American Medical Association. He told the committee that the reason the AMA had not denounced the Marihuana Tax Law sooner was that the Association had just discovered that marihuana was/is hemp.

Few people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been reading about on Hearst's front pages was in fact passive hemp. The AMA understood hemp to be a MEDICINE found in numerous healing products sold over the last hundred years.

In September of 1937, hemp became illegal. The most useful crop known became a drug and our planet has been suffering ever since.

Congress banned hemp because it was said to be the most violence-causing drug known. Anslinger, head of the Drug Commission for 31 years, promoted the idea that marihuana made users act extremely violent. In the 1950s, under the Communist threat of McCarthyism, Anslinger now said the exact opposite. Marijuana will pacify you so much that soldiers would not want to fight.

Today, our planet is in desperate trouble. Earth is suffocating as large tracts of rain forests disappear. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are killing people. These great problems could be reversed if we industrialized hemp. Natural bio mass could provide all of the planet's energy needs that are currently supplied by fossil fuels. We have consumed 80% of our oil and gas reserves. We need a renewable resource. Hemp could be the solution to soaring gas prices.


Hemp has a higher quality fiber than wood fiber. Far fewer caustic chemicals are required to make paper from hemp than from trees. Hemp paper does not turn yellow and is very durable. The plant grows quickly to maturity in a season where trees take a lifetime.

ALL PLASTIC PRODUCTS SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP SEED OIL. Hempen plastics are biodegradable! Over time, they would break down and not harm the environment. Oil-based plastics, the ones we are very familiar with, help ruin nature; they do not break down and will do great harm in the future. The process to produce the vast array of natural (hempen) plastics will not ruin the rivers as DuPont and other petrochemical companies have done. Ecology does not fit in with the plans of the Oil Industry and the political machine. Hemp products are safe and natural.

MEDICINES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. We should go back to the days when the AMA supported hemp cures. 'Medical Marijuana' is given out legally to only a handful of people while the rest of us are forced into a system that relies on chemicals. Hemp is only healthy for the human body.

WORLD HUNGER COULD END. A large variety of food products can be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature. ALSO: They have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature! Consuming hemp seeds is the best thing you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.

CLOTHES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. Hemp clothing is extremely strong and durable over time. You could hand clothing, made from hemp, down to your grandchildren. Today, there are American companies that make hemp clothing; usually 50% hemp. Hemp fabrics should be everywhere. Instead, they are almost underground. Superior hemp products are not allowed to advertise on fascist television. Kentucky, once the top hemp producing state, made it ILLEGAL TO WEAR hemp clothing! Can you imagine being thrown into jail for wearing quality jeans?

The world is crazy...but that does not mean you have to join the insanity. Get together. Spread the news. Tell people, and that includes your children, the truth. Use hemp products. Eliminate the word 'marijuana.' Realize the history that created it. Make it politically incorrect to say or print the M-word. Fight against the propaganda (designed to favor the agenda of the super rich) and the bullshit. Hemp must be utilized in the future. We need a clean energy source to save our planet. INDUSTRIALIZE HEMP!

The liquor, tobacco and oil companies fund more than a million dollars a day to Partnership for a Drug-Free America and other similar agencies. We have all seen their commercials. Now, their motto is: 'It's more dangerous than we thought.' Lies from the powerful corporations, that began with Hearst, are still alive and well today.

The brainwashing continues. Now, the commercials say: If you buy a joint, you contribute to murders and gang wars. The latest anti-hemp commercials say: If you buy a are promoting TERRORISM! The new enemy (terrorism) has paved the road to brainwash you any way THEY see fit.

There is only one enemy; the friendly people you pay your taxes to; the war-makers and nature destroyers. With your funding, they are killing the world right in front of your eyes. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY TOBACCO. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY ALCOHOL.

Ingesting THC, hemp's active agent, has a positive effect; relieving asthma and glaucoma. A joint tends to alleviate the nausea caused by chemotherapy. You are able to eat on hemp. This is a healthy state of being.

The hemp plant is an ALIEN plant. There is physical evidence that hemp is not like any other plant on this planet. One could conclude that it was brought here for the benefit of humanity. Hemp is the ONLY plant where the males appear one way and the females appear very different, physically! No one ever speaks of males and females in regard to the plant kingdom because plants do not show their sexes; except for hemp. To determine what sex a certain, normal, Earthly plant is: You have to look internally, at its DNA. A male blade of grass (physically) looks exactly like a female blade of grass. The hemp plant has an intense sexuality.


Today many around the world and across our nation search for ultimate health remedies. From Cancer, Tumors, ALS, Parkinson, heart/blood, Aids, skin issue's, eye sight issues to Glaucoma, Rick has found the answer. Rick Simpson from Nova Scotia has spent years healing many diseases using one of our Father's most powerful oils. For years in America it was law and standard practice that families always keep the oil on hand.

The drug cartel which controls the Allopath a wisely clocked extension of the Military Industrial Complex no longer allows the use of this all powerful curative oil. It is time to awaken and learn the truth. Bless you on your journey to Freedom glorifying the Father who came to liberate the oppressed giving every free man the right to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. Through education we can become the Architect of our health and future for family and friends.

An example of what is happening everywhere as Governments grab more money

Dalton McGuinty is Ontario's present Premier.

Here is what he has implemented in Ontario in the past seven years!!!!!!

He began with a no tax increase election campaign.

He increased all the licensing fees from your car to your boat including fishing and hunting.

He introduced the health care premium (not called a tax) some couples pay as much as $1,500.00 a year.

He doubled the price of most lottery tickets. (Not called a tax).

He has put a ECO tax on many containers such as paint cans and window washer fluid most people still don’t realize that they are paying it. He kept that one real quiet

He has put a disposal tax on all electronics.

He has put the disposal tax back on tires

Now don’t forget that all except the health care premium are subject to the GST and PST (taxes on taxes.)

And now he has pasted the HST the largest tax on the province ever, the only other tax in Ontario that ever came close to this in the past was the health care premium.

He passed this bill even though 76% of the people in Ontario were against it.

This HST will provide the Province with an additional THREE BILLION dollars a year.

And now we will have our S.M.A.R.T. meters that we will have to pay rent on and do our laundry in the middle of the night and we are going to pay big time for air conditioning from now on because when we need it the most that will be prime time. As if it costs any more to produce hydro at two in the afternoon or ten at night another tax grab.

Let us not forget the E health scandal with one point two billion dollars wasted and paid out to friends and relatives.

Mr. McGuinty’s answer to this was "well if the people of Ontario don’t like it they can show it in the next election. Nice. This was after he fired the CEO and gave her a severance package of three hundred thousand dollars not bad for only having the job for seven months.

Then the windmill power plant he awards the contract to KOREA seven BILLION DOLLARS. One would think that there was some place in Canada or North America that could have built these.

He closed the emergency rooms in Port Colborne and Fort Erie because there is not enough money and there has been two deaths since because by the time they got to St.Catharines it was to late.

He awards a hospital in Toronto involving three million dollars in the riding where there just happens to be a by- election to replace George Smitherman

He has taken the richest most prosperous province in Canada to one of the poorest and has created a deficit of TWENTY SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS and he still has a year and a half to go.

And don’t forget his nice little salary increase of $40,000.00 a year, millions of people in the province don’t earn half that.

All the MPP’S got 14% increase

Now that they all got nice increases he comes out with a new budget and freezes all provincial employees wages for two years.

He has increased the hydro by 10% in April of 2010.

He has increased the tax on liquor and wine by 10% in May of 2010

But mister no tax McGuinty will retire with his nice comfortable pension and all his paid benefits.

I hope this gets passed around the province of Ontario and everybody remembers the way Mister McGuinty treats his voters. Not one liberal MPP had enough guts to vote against any of the above.

The cost of safety for G8 and G 20

The federal government put the G20 in the middle of Toronto and the cost is below, almost 1 billion dollars. What a waste of money this is when you consider the poor people in Canada and how better to use this money. It is irresponsible to do this and shows a complete disrespect for the people of the country. But it does show the ego of the PM and his need to look big.

OTTAWA (AFP) - Canada has boosted its budget for security costs for upcoming G8 and G20 summits in and around Toronto next month, with some estimates approaching a billion dollars, officials said.The costs were original estimated at 179 million Canadian dollars, but an additional 654 million Canadian dollars was requested Tuesday, for a total of 833 million Canadian dollars (780 million US).

The figures were outlined in a document presented to parliament. They include 321.5 million Canadian dollars for federal police, 262.6 million for the public safety department, 63.1 million for the military and 6.7 million for other agencies.But officials said the costs could be even higher than requested so far.
"Based on a medium threat assessment, we're budgeting up to 930 million (Canadian) dollars," Christopher McCluskey, spokesman for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, told AFP.

"It costs what it costs," he said. "We're prepared as hosts to respond to any possible threat and ensure all of the delegates' safety."

The Group of Eight summit is to take place in Huntsville in the Muskoka region north of Toronto on June 25-26 and be immediately followed by a G20 summit in Toronto on June 26-27.

The International Cartel that rules us.

Cartel - Definition

A group of companies or countries which collectively attempt to affect market prices by controlling production and marketing. Illegal in the United States and the European Union. Very few major cartels exist; the most prominent example is OPEC, a cartel which can not be considered illegal because it is made up of sovereign states, not companies. also called trust.

Merridian Webster
Main Entry: car·tel
Pronunciation: \kär-ˈtel\
Function: noun
Etymology: French, letter of defiance, from Old Italian cartello, literally, placard, from carta leaf of paper — more at card
Date: 1692

1 : a written agreement between belligerent nations
2 : a combination of independent commercial or industrial enterprises designed to limit competition or fix prices
3 : a combination of political groups for common action

I have been trying for some time now to understand what is going on in the world as we are being internationalized. In Canada it seems we are losing personal freedoms and these are being arbitrated outside our sovereign state. Hence I must conclude that our country is under other’s control. I do not feel comfortable with this idea.

I think the political/Corporate Cartel which includes all the major corporations and the banking empire of the world is working on its own behalf and not on the behalf of people.

The case below is a report from England in the Daily Telegraph. If you take the time to read it you will see that the winners of this fight should it be the BMA and the Pharmaceuticals is certainly not in the best interest of the people of England. Which is my point entirely.

The efforts of the International Cartel in every country of the world, is to direct the masses through media and marginalize all alternate competitors in the name of profits: Banking, chemical companies, military manufacturers, energy, etc. In the end it will mean less freedom of choice for individuals everywhere.

At this time peaceful people the world over have taken to the internet and the streets to bring the information forward and do what they can to influence governments through petitions and at the voting booths that this must stop. It is an uphill battle against a stacked deck.

If this fails I fear for the world will become a battleground as people rise up to claim their freedoms from this oppressive cartel.

Ayn Rand said it all:
" We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”

Following is the newspaper article. Read it and recognize the propaganda it spews in its efforts to denigrate and destroy this financially viable safe and successful alternate to their expensive questionable cures that have side effects which can even cause death.

Homeopathy is witchcraft, say doctors
Homeopathy is "witchcraft" and the National Health Service should not pay for it, the British Medical Association has declared.

Homeopathy is witchcraft, say doctors
The BMA has previously expressed scepticism about homoeopathy Photo: GETTY

Hundreds of members of the BMA have passed a motion denouncing the use of the alternative medicine, saying taxpayers should not foot the bill for remedies with no scientific basis to support them.

The BMA has previously expressed scepticism about homoeopathy, arguing that the rationing body, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence should examine the evidence base and make a definitive ruling about the use of the remedies in the NHS.

Now, the annual conference of junior doctors has gone further, with a vote overwhelmingly supporting a blanket ban, and an end to all placements for trainee doctors which teach them homeopathic principles.

Dr Tom Dolphin, deputy chairman of the BMA's junior doctors committee in England told the conference: "Homeopathy is witchcraft. It is a disgrace that nestling between the National Hospital for Neurology and Great Ormond Street [in London] there is a National Hospital for Homeopathy which is paid for by the NHS".

The alternative medicine, devised in the 18th century by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann, is based on a theory that substances which cause symptoms in a healthy person can, when vastly diluted, cure the same problems in a sick person.

Proponents say the resulting remedy retains a "memory" of the original ingredient – a concept dismissed by scientists.

Latest figures show 54,000 patients are treated each year at four NHS homeopathic hospitals in London, Glasgow, Bristol and Liverpool, at an estimated cost of £4 million.

A fifth hospital in Tunbridge Wells in Kent was forced to close last year when local NHS funders stopped paying for treatments.

Gordon Lehany, chairman of the BMA's junior doctors committee in Scotland said it was wrong that some junior doctors were spending part of their training rotations in homeopathic hospitals, learning principles which had no place in science.

He told the conference in London last weekend: "At a time when the NHS is struggling for cash we should be focusing on treatments that have proven benefit. If people wish to pay for homoeopathy that's their choice but it shouldn't be paid for on the NHS until there is evidence that it works."

The motion was supported by BMA Chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum, though it will only become official policy of the whole organisation if it is agreed by their full conference next month.

In February a report by MPs said the alternative medicine should not receive state funding.

The Commons science and technology committee also said vials of the remedies should not be allowed to use phrases like "used to treat" in their marketing, as consumers might think there is clinical evidence that they work.

In evidence to the committee, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain said there was no possible reason why such treatments, marketed by an industry worth £40 million in this country, could be effective scientifically.

Advocates of homoeopathy say even if the effect of the remedies is to work as a placebo, they are chosen by thousands of people, and do not carry the risks and side effects of many mainstream medicines.

A survey carried out at England's NHS homeopathic hospitals found 70 per cent of patients said they felt some improvement after undergoing treatment.

Crystal Sumner, chief executive of the British Homeopathic Association (BHA), said attempts to stop the NHS funding alternative medicines ignored the views of the public, especially patients with chronic conditions.

She said: " Homeopathy helps thousands of people who are not helped by conventional care. We don't want it to be a substitute for mainstream care, but when people are thinking about making cuts to funding, I think they need to consider public satisfaction, and see that homoeopathy has a place in medicine."

She said junior doctors' calls for an end to any training placements based in homeopathic hospitals ignored the lessons alternative medicine could provide, in terms of how to diagnose patients.

Estimates on how much the NHS spends on homoeopathy vary. The BHA says the NHS spends about £4 million a year on homeopathic services, although the Department of Health says spending on the medicines themselves is just £152,000 a year.

Two weeks ago, a charity founded by the Prince of Wales to promotes alternative medicines announced plans to shut down, days after a former senior official was arrested on suspicion of fraud and money laundering.

The Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health said its plans to close had been brought forward as a result of a fraud investigation at the charity.

George Gray, a former chief executive of the organisation, and his wife Gillian were arrested by Scotland Yard officers last month in an early-morning raid on their home in North London. medicine/7113054/Homeopathy-medicine-thats-hard-to-swallow.html

Steven Harper, Conservatives and Totalitarian ideas.

Steven Harper says groups like C.R.U.S.H. -Canadians Rallying to Unseat Stephen Harper who oppose his government are subversives and are watched. He sets a dangerous anti-humanitarian precident. In a democracy such as ours disagreement is allowed and in totalitarian regimes it is not.

It is the same when his Government promotes the idea of employees tattling on their company to the Government. Soon children will be reporting parents to authorities. This is not the kind of world I want to live in. Do you?

This years comedy with a predictable ending we can change

Citizens like you and I are losing personal freedoms supposedly protected by our countries. Freedom of choice in the food we eat as labeling is being taken away and you won't know if food is GMO or not. WHO right now can under the pandemic laws that govern many countries like Canada, can rule that we have to get a vaccine and we are obliged to. No exception and enforced. Sounds heavy to me. The banks and money are playing us all to poverty as we support their failures with out money. We are being used. it is called Usury.

This is a plot for a bad scifi film except that is what is going to happen at the G6 and G20 conferences in Huntsville and at the Toronto Convention centre. Our fate as people is being put under new orders of existence (large groups of countries with a central control that can override our Government and country rights. Those agreements are not much about freedom and supporte for ordinary people.

The Canadian Government plus Ontario and Toronto, our tax money, is paying over 150 million dollars for G20 security. It is more than just the odd mad bomber that the barriers are being set up for but for the protesters, mostly pacifistic and wanting to have their understandings and cautions heard. Relegated to official protester locations.

The media will go for the sizzle and forget the steak as they say in show bis. They will show the drama of confrontation and not the messages that should be heard. The most inteteresting aspect is that this is all happening before our eyes. In some countries where one votes and has political parties one would expect a strong opposition to where we are headed as human beings in a country that we seem to claim.

The reason is the media is captured and we are led blindly following for who else do we have to believe in. Any other ideas contrary to the directions of the ruling Industrial, pharmaceutical, chemical and military powers is vilified, distorted and marginalized in the media to deflect any opposing ideas wanting to be presented.

Worst part of a bad movie you can predict the outcome and I get a creepy feeling it is a very unpleasant end of our stay here on earth. Maybe and maybe not. Pass this on if you think as I do and we will mount a great army to turn the battle in our favour. We must act. We are the creators, what we dream we create, what we create we become.

tomorrow Listen 12.30 EST. WebTV Liquid Lunch

I will be on this program with Dee Nicholson of Canadian For Health Freedom. Below is what we will be discussing. She is following the bouncing ball of our freedom losses and tells it like it is. Plug in and watch.

The loss of our rights to International agreements is as fatal to our freedoms as losing them through Government bills that seem protective but in fact limit our rights in many areas. It might be a good review to explain this and some of the agreements our Government is signing on our behalf and the ones presently being presented internally to bring us to heal. The fact that you can point to the overall codex plan allows people's eyes to glaze over and lose the salient fact that we are being done in. But that being said it sounds like a topic that all of us can be interested in. Homeopathy is successful because it works and growing as it should as people spread the news to people. Much of what is being passed now will fall as the Corporates are more and more losing credibility and few are adhering to the draconian laws enacted. Remember HMO should have been able to insist we all take vaccines as a pandemic had been declared last year but no country insisted on this and it was a failure of the strong forces against the weaker citizenry that just did not buy into it at any level.

U.S. exempted BP's Gulf of Mexico drilling from environmental impact study

The citizens and the country are not being protected by our Governments.

By Juliet Eilperin
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, May 5, 2010

The Interior Department exempted BP's calamitous Gulf of Mexico drilling operation from a detailed environmental impact analysis last year, according to government documents, after three reviews of the area concluded that a massive oil spill was unlikely.

The decision by the department's Minerals Management Service (MMS) to give BP's lease at Deepwater Horizon a "categorical exclusion" from the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) on April 6, 2009 -- and BP's lobbying efforts just 11 days before the explosion to expand those exemptions -- show that neither federal regulators nor the company anticipated an accident of the scale of the one unfolding in the gulf.

Rethinking the rules

Now, environmentalists and some key senators are calling for a reassessment of safety requirements for offshore drilling.

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), who has supported offshore oil drilling in the past, said, "I suspect you're going to see an entirely different regime once people have a chance to sit back and take a look at how do we anticipate and clean up these potential environmental consequences" from drilling.

BP spokesman Toby Odone said the company's appeal for NEPA waivers in the past "was based on the spill and incident-response history in the Gulf of Mexico." Once the various investigations of the new spill have been completed, he added, "the causes of this incident can be applied to determine any changes in the regulatory regime that are required to protect the environment."

"I'm of the opinion that boosterism breeds complacency and complacency breeds disaster," said Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) on Tuesday. "That, in my opinion, is what happened."

Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute, said it is important to learn the cause of the accident before pursuing a major policy change. "While the conversation has shifted, the energy reality has not," Gerard said. "The American economy still relies on oil and gas."

While the MMS assessed the environmental impact of drilling in the central and western Gulf of Mexico on three occasions in 2007 -- including a specific evaluation of BP's Lease 206 at Deepwater Horizon -- in each case it played down the prospect of a major blowout.

In one assessment, the agency estimated that "a large oil spill" from a platform would not exceed a total of 1,500 barrels and that a "deepwater spill," occurring "offshore of the inner Continental shelf," would not reach the coast. In another assessment, it defined the most likely large spill as totaling 4,600 barrels and forecast that it would largely dissipate within 10 days and would be unlikely to make landfall.

"They never did an analysis that took into account what turns out to be the very real possibility of a serious spill," said Holly Doremus, a law professor at the University of California at Berkeley who has reviewed the documents.

The MMS mandates that companies drilling in some areas identify under NEPA what could reduce a project's environmental impact. But Interior Department spokesman Matt Lee-Ashley said the service grants between 250 and 400 waivers a year for Gulf of Mexico projects. He added that Interior has now established the "first ever" board to examine safety procedures for offshore drilling. It will report back within 30 days on BP's oil spill and will conduct "a broader review of safety issues," Lee-Ashley said.

BP's exploration plan for Lease 206, which calls the prospect of an oil spill "unlikely," stated that "no mitigation measures other than those required by regulation and BP policy will be employed to avoid, diminish or eliminate potential impacts on environmental resources."

While the plan included a 13-page environmental impact analysis, it minimized the prospect of any serious damage associated with a spill, saying there would be only "sub-lethal" effects on fish and marine mammals, and "birds could become oiled. However it is unlikely that an accidental oil spill would occur from the proposed activities."

Kierán Suckling, executive director of the environmental group Center for Biological Diversity, said the federal waiver "put BP entirely in control" of the way it conducted its drilling.

Agency a 'rubber stamp'

"The agency's oversight role has devolved to little more than rubber-stamping British Petroleum's self-serving drilling plans," Suckling said.

BP has lobbied the White House Council on Environmental Quality -- which provides NEPA guidance for all federal agencies-- to provide categorical exemptions more often. In an April 9 letter, BP America's senior federal affairs director, Margaret D. Laney, wrote to the council that such exemptions should be used in situations where environmental damage is likely to be "minimal or non-existent." An expansion in these waivers would help "avoid unnecessary paperwork and time delays," she added.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill were talking Tuesday about curtailing offshore oil exploration rather than making it easier. In addition to traditional foes of offshore drilling such as Democratic Sens. Robert Menendez (N.J.) and Bill Nelson (Fla.), Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and centrists such as Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.) said they are taking a second look at such methods.

"It's time to push the pause button," Baucus told reporters.

Staff writer Steven Mufson contributed to this report.

This safety concern bypassed leaves us vulnerable just as forgiving the Pharmaceuticals of any legal responsibility for their vaccines is truly criminal. Instead the Government has funds for this. What is going on???

Think about it - The environmental impact of the spill and its impact on lives in the area will last for years and cost billions. We pay the bill and live with the consequences of bad Government.

It is no different for a child who reacts badly to a vaccine impact on families who are thrown into medical interventions, constant care and sometimes both hospitalization and institutional care plus a lifelong suffering of the damaged person. We pay for that through a Government fund so we pay all that for pharmaceuticals forgiven mistakes.

FEAR - a tool to control people.

Living in Toronto I am afraid to go to Iraq for a holiday. Why?
My first reason is I am afraid I might be killed by terrorists. If I actually lived in Iraq I would be living by the minute with this fear. Fear is what terrorists want; people afraid give way and do what the terrorist wants them to do.

As I watch the media today I am bombarded with fears. Told to be afraid. Told to be cautious. I follow directions through fear and fear mongering by money masters and mortgage lenders, and GMO food creators to save the world from starving and WHO creating pandemics and demanding Flu vaccines for the world or we will be at risk.
All are presented by promoting fear if we do not obey.

Fear is exported by our Governments who are broke and need more taxes but give less services. In the end it is democracy that needs Capitalism and a consumer public to pay for itself. The needs for profit encouraging consumer overindulgence to earn profits for shareholders. We think for a while we are in the cat bird seat with everything we want and now we realize there is a price to pay. Money is being made that promotes this. Fear about no money and poverty keeps us in line.

In responding to the fear of terrorism, Americans and much of the world's people are losing personal rights through "Patriot" like laws that limit personal freedoms and one of those rights is the freedom of choice.

At every major Corporation and in Governments there is stategy afoot to limit our freedom of choice through all media including the internet. A consistent negative published point of view is trying to restrict vitamins, organic foods, medication to follow their dictates by law. Alternates will become illegal.

As we join in larger groups like Nafta and G8 and G20 countries become subject to outside judgments that will be binding on how we the people will respond. A small group of appointed executives somewhere in the world will be able to dictate to us what we must do.

Our citizens will be no longer free to choose.

Fear disorients people and adds huge stress to every life.

Fear mongering leads to control. Obey and be safe is the mantra.

Whether it is the Terrorist or the Government or the International Corporations, we are being continually stressed to follow their edicts and do what we are told or democracy and our way of life will fail.

It is dangerous if we do not resist this movement toward a new kind of dictatorship; one overseen by the Corporate management at an International level and driven by excessive profits at people's expense.

From my 3rd floor window on a sunny Friday

There’s sweetness in the morning air
Now that spring is really here
And flowers of red and gold
Bless the gardens that are near

The tulips open with the dawn
And spread their petals to the sun
It is a glorious thing to see
and bees buzz by, it is such fun

Across the street the trees are red
And branches of forsythia yellow
The orioles hide and whistle loud
While doves parade in gray so mellow

deep in the shadows of the trees
green spines come shooting up
The lilies of the valley grow
Soon smells to fill a loving cup

How rich we are to be alive
And witness this our human hive

Hahnemann's early life in his own words.

This is an excerpt from The Life and Letters of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann by Thomas Lindsley Bradford, M. D. It is clear on reading this how special Hahnemann is. His early life is a marvel for the education he received from people who recognized his abilities. The moral and ethical underpinnings of his role models guided him all his life.

August 30, 1791

I was born April 10, 1755, in the Electorate of Saxony, one of the most beautiful parts of Germany. This circumstance, as I grew up to manhood, doubtless contributed a great deal to my veneration for the beauties of nature. My father, Christian Gottfried Hahnemann, together with my mother, Johanna Christiana, born Spiess, for a pastime taught me to read and write. My father died four years ago (1787.) Without being deeply versed in science (he was a designer in a porcelain manufactory in his native place, and is the author of a brief treatise on painting in water colors) he had the soundest ideas of what may be considered good and worthy, and he implanted them deeply on my mind.

To live and to act without pretence or show was his most noteworthy precept, and his example was even more impressive than his words. He was always present, though often unobserved, in body and soul wherever any good was to be done. In his acts he discriminated with the utmost nicety between the noble and the ignoble, and he did it with a justness which was highly creditable to his tender feelings. In this respect, too, he was my preceptor. He seemed to have ideas of the first principles of creation, of the dignity of humanity, and of its ennobling destiny, that were not in the least inconsistent with his manner of acting. This gave direction to my moral training. To speak of my mental training, I spent several years in the public school of Meissen so as to go thence, in my sixteenth year, to the private school (Fiirstenschule), in the same place, and four years thereafter to attend the University of Leipsic. There was nothing noteworthy respecting me at school, except that Master Muller, my teacher in ancient languages and German composition, who besides living a great deal for the world and me, was rector of the Meissen private school, and scarcely has had his equal in industry and honesty, loved me as his own child and allowed me liberties in the way of study, which I am thankful for to this day, and which had a perceptible influence upon my subsequent studies. In my twelfth year he entrusted to me to impart to others the rudiments of the Greek language. Moreover, in his private classes with his boarders and myself, he listened attentively and lovingly to my critical exposition of the old writers, and often preferred my meaning to his own. I was often overtaxed and became ill from study, and was the only one who was excused from lessons at times unsuitable for me, and who was permitted to hand in written exercises or other work performed subsequently, and to read foreign treatises on the lessons. I had free access to him at all times of the day, and in many respects was given the preference in public to many others; and, nevertheless, which is very strange, my fellow pupils loved me. All this together speaks volumes in praise of a Saxony private school.

Here I was less solicitous about reading than about digesting what was read, and was careful to read little, but to read correctly and to classify it in my mind before reading further. My father did not wish me to study at all; he repeatedly took me from the public school for a whole year, so that I might pursue some other business more suited to his income. My teachers prevented this by not accepting any pay for my schooling during the last eight years, and they entreated him to leave me with them and thus indulge my propensity for learning. He did not resist their entreaty, but could do nothing more for me. On Easter, 1775, he let me go to Leipsic, taking with me twenty thalers for my support. This was the last money received from his hand. He had several other children to educate from his scanty income, enough to excuse any seeming negligence in the best of fathers.

By giving instruction in German and French to a rich young Greek from Jassy, in Moldavia, as well as by translating English books, I supported myself for the time, intending to leave Leipsic after a stay of two years.

I can conscientiously bear testimony that I endeavored to practice in Leipsic also, the rule of my father, never to be a passive listener or learner. I did not forget here, however, to procure for my body, by outdoor exercise, that sprightliness and vigor by which alone continued mental exertion can be successfully endured.

During this stay in Leipsic I attended lectures only at such hours as seemed best suited to me, although Herr Bergrath Porner, of Meissen, had the kindness to furnish me with free tickets to the lectures of all the medical professors. So I read by myself, unweariedly of course, but always only of the best that was procurable, and only so much as I could digest. My fondness for practicing medicine, as there is no medical school at Leipzig, led me to go to Vienna at my own expense. But a malicious trick which was played upon me and which robbed me of my public reputation acquired in Leipsic (repentance demands atonement, and I say nothing about names and circumstances) was answerable for my being compelled to leave Vienna after a sojourn of three-fourths of a year. During these nine months I had had for my support only sixty-eight florins and twelve kreutzers. To the hospital of Brothers of Charity, in the Leopoldstadt, and to the great practical genius of the Prince’s family physician, named Von Quarin, I am indebted for my calling as a physician. I had his friendship, and I might also say his love, and I was the only one of my age whom he took with him to visit his private patients. He respected, loved and instructed me as if I had been the first of his pupils, and even more than this, and he did all without expecting to receive any compensation from me.

My last crumbs of subsistence were just about to vanish when the Governor of Transylvania, Baron von Bruckenthal, invited me under honorable conditions to go with him to Hermanstadt as family physician and custodian of his important library. Here I had the opportunity to learn several other languages necessary to me, and to acquire some collateral knowledge that was pertinent and still seemed to be lacking in me.

I arranged and catalogued his matchless collection of ancient coins as well as his vast library, practiced medicine in this populous city for a year and nine months and then departed, although very unwillingly, from these honorable people to receive at Erlangen the degree of doctor of medicine, which I was then able to do from my own attainments. To the Privy Councillor, Delius, and Councillors Isenflamm, Schreber and Wendt, I am indebted for many favors and much instruction.

Councillor Schreber taught me what I still lacked in Botany.

On August 10, 1779, I defended my dissertation, and, thereupon, received the honorable title of doctor of medicine.

The instinctive love of a Swiss for his rugged Alps cannot be more irresistible than that of a native of Saxony for his fatherland.

I went thither to begin my career as a practicing physician in the mining town of Hettstadt, in Mansfield county. Here it was impossible to develop either inwardly or outwardly, and I left the place for Dessau in the spring of 1781, after a sojourn of nine months. Here I found a better and more cultured society. Chemistry occupied my leisure hours and short trips made to improve my knowledge of mining and smelting filled up the yet quite large dormer windows in my mind.

Towards the close of the year 1791, I received an insignificant call as physician to Gommern, near Magdeburg. The size of the town being considerable, I looked for a better reception and business than I found in the two years and three-fourths which I passed in this place.

There had lived as yet no physician in this little place to which I had removed, and the people had no idea concerning such a person.

Now I began for the first time to taste the innocent joys of home along with the delights of business in the companionship of the partner of my life, who was the step-daughter of Herr Haseler, an apothecary in Dessau, and whom I married immediately after entering upon the duties of this position. Dresden was the next place of my sojourn.

I played no brilliant role here, probably because I did not wish to do so. However, I lacked here neither friends nor instruction. The venerable Doctor Wagner, the town physician, who was a pattern of unswerving uprightness, honored me with his intimate friendship, showed me clearly what legal duties belonged to the physician (for he was master in his art), and for a year delivered over to me on account of his illness, with the magistrate’s consent, all of his patients (in the town hospitals), a wide field for a friend of humanity. Moreover, the Superintendent of the Electoral Library, Councillor Adelung, became very fond of me and, together with the Librarian, Dossdorf, contributed a great deal towards making my sojourn interesting and agreeable. Four years thus elapsed, more speedily to me in the bosom of my increasing family, than to the unexpected heir to great riches, and I went about the time of Michaelmas, 1789, to Leipsic, in order to be nearer to the fountain of science. Here I quietly witness the Providence which Destiny assigns to each of my days, the number of which lies in her hand.

Four daughters and one son, together with my wife, constitute the spice of my life. In the year 1791 the Leipsic Economical Society, and on the second of August of the same year the Electoral Mayence Academy of Science, elected me a fellow member.

There are serious people objecting to Healthcare fraud.


How Citizens, Scientists, and Even Politicians are Saying No to Healthcare Fraud

Vitality Magazine April 2010

“He’s a man way out there in the blue, riding on a smile and a shoeshine. And when they start not smiling back – that’s an earthquake.”
Death of a Salesman (1949) by Arthur Miller

Saying No! is a social responsibility none of us may safely ignore. Heroes reveal the fact of oppression and demand opposition; their example helps us to build courage, but in the end each one of us must act personally.
Farmer Michael Schmidt, who was recently acquitted of all charges brought against him by Health Canada on the raw milk issue, took part in a health freedom panel at the Total Health Show in March. While there, he stated that the only way to achieve change in the current food and drug regulatory system which favours corporate interests over human rights and scientific evidence, is to say “No!” to the bureaucrats’ assumption of obedience. “It drives them crazy!”, he said. Schmidt was sharing the panel with Health Canada rebel Dr. Shiv Chopra, lawyer Shawn Buckley of the Natural Health Products Protection Association, and world-famous cancer-industry debunker Ralph Moss.
Saying No! becomes effective when one employs three tools: the uncovering of suppressed facts, the demonstration of regulations contravening mandatory procedure and current law, and the soliciting of public response to misinformation campaigns. It is this reasoned method of cutting through the BS and insisting on “informed consent” that “drives them crazy.” Complaining that the world is going to hell , or despairing over what some great cabal of crooks are going to do next merely feeds that corruption.
Over the past couple of years, public opposition to corporate agendas aiming to make people into consumers and nothing but (at great cost to health and environment) has gained momentum. Indeed, the famous Flynn Effect appears to be validated. It states that average intelligence rises with every generation in all measurable areas of cognition, language/semantics, and memory. This effect has been measured in all cultures. I am especially impressed by the intelligence that people demonstrate in the art of saying No! They trust their own judgment and ignore “experts” in droves. Here are some inspiring examples of vital significance because they are funded by governments and institutions whose focus was forced to shift by overwhelming evidence.

Patients Abandon Their Prescriptions
The University of Saskatchewan found that women, especially, have been avoiding taking their antidepressants despite the fact that the numbers of prescriptions increased: they either don’t fill them or don’t take them once filled.
Less than 1% of women who have survived estrogen-dependent breast cancer actually take their prescribed Tamoxifen, the drug that supposedly prevents recurrence of breast cancer but has a high chance of causing liver and uterine cancer instead. The National Cancer Institute in the U.S. was so astonished by this statistic, they launched a study into the reasons for this outbreak of superior female intelligence.
Not only patients are wising up. The former pundits of medical orthodoxy are announcing truths most Vitality readers have known for some time. For example, the American Cancer Society no longer supports mammograms as an effective tool for breast cancer prevention, nor PSA testing for prostate cancer screening.

Governments React to Healthcare Fraud
The European Union published the results of a multi-year mega study late last year, entitled “Healthy Living is the Best Revenge”. It showed that people who didn’t smoke, exercised moderately, ate fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts, and ate very little meat reduced their risk of diabetes by 93%, heart attacks by 81%, and the incidence of all cancers by 36%. Interestingly, around the same time President Obama called for a total ban on candy and soda in the nation’s schools in February and is considering crippling taxes for such products.
Some governments acted outright heroically: Sweden banned all uses of mercury last year, which means the rest of the EU will have no choice but to do the same soon. The vaccine industry must be in shock (what will they use as preservatives now?), and those 50% of EU dentists who still use mercury amalgam must be assessing their options nervously.
Republican Senator Charles Grassley recently disarmed the agenda of Big Pharma when he introduced a bill that would require Big Pharma to publish all payments made to doctors and researchers above $50. And he has bi-partisan support – Massachusetts pre-empted Congress and already requires publication of all payments over $5! I anticipate a disproportionately low death rate and dramatic decrease in healthcare expenditures for that State.
In January of this year, Senator Grassley exposed Glaxo SmithKline’s fraudulent “science”. Turns out that the diabetes drug Avandia is based on “no science at all” and GSK was proven to have lied to the FDA regulators and the public, killing thousands (Avandia increases the risk of heart attacks by 43% in diabetics). GSK now faces liability storms similar to those that shook Pfizer with a fine of $2.3 billion due to the fraud uncovered with regard to the painkiller Bextra, the antipsychotic drug Geodon, the antibiotic Zyvox, and the antidepressant Lyrica. Additional revelations included Merck fabricating an entire bogus medical journal to support its disastrous anti-inflammatory drug Vioxx, and sales for Pfizer’s rival drug Celebrex were boosted by a study which reported results gathered by a renowned expert, Dr. Scott Reuben, based on no patients at all. The entire study was faked – as were this researcher’s studies on Bextra and rival company Merck’s Vioxx. This takes science fiction to quite a new level.

New Research Exposes Pharma Fraud
The complex edifice of lies, which often fatally misled many desperate patients for many years, is crumbling so fast that I find it difficult to keep up with the relevant publications.
The American Journal of Psychiatry recently published the results of a huge study showing that sudden death in children increases by about 500% when taking ADHD drugs, of which Ritalin is the best-known. The researchers who undertook this study set out, explicitly, to disprove such a connection and were forced by the evidence to admit the opposite. This data caused something of a house-fire in the mansions of psychiatry: researchers Greenberg and Kirsch published bestselling books showing that a whole class of antidepressant drugs are actually not much different in their effects on depression than placebo – i.e. sugar pills. However, what they do cause is personality changes, including extreme violence and a dramatic increase in the rate of suicide, as psychiatrist Peter Breggin testified a few weeks ago before the U.S. Congress.
Last year, The New England Journal of Medicine, the British Medical Journal, the Mayo Clinic, JAMA, the Lancet, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Cancer, and the PLoS-Medicine (open-access on-line journal), all published exhaustive re-analyses of large databases showing that the most vital information on the dangers of drugs mysteriously is missing in virtually all patient information, that 94% of all positive information on Big Pharma products comes from authors who are financially compromised, nearly 29% of all cancer studies are thus financially conflicted and unreliable, and the claims for survival in cancer therapy studies were essentially wishful thinking at best.
The proposal that caused my jaw to drop and left me (almost) speechless appeared on April 1 last year, but it is was not a joke. Published in the Journal of the American Medical Assn, it was authored by the editors of the world’s leading medical journals and provided a “proposal for controlling conflicts of interest”. If anybody had asked me how to accomplish such control, I would have recommended “a complete ban on pharmaceutical and medical device industry funding …”. To my astonishment, that is exactly what these editors recommended! The above is a quote from them, not from yours truly. JAMA’s list of revolutionary demands included the following: that the education of doctors “must be carefully distinguished from marketing” (who will fund medical conferences?) and that medical organizations should no longer accept money from Big Pharma at all; such “fundamental reforms” were stated as being imperative because otherwise “the public trust” is, well, down the toilet. I didn’t think I would live long enough to read something like this in JAMA.
Speaking of public trust, here is a zinger! Early in March, Dr. Poul Thorsen disappeared along with $2 million in research money. The money is nothing compared to the importance of the doctor. He published a series of studies, starting in 2003, that supposedly proved that the MMR vaccine cannot cause autism. Using the large government database of Denmark as his source, Thorsen misrepresented the data showing that Denmark supposedly experienced a 20-fold increase in autism after mercury was banned there as a vaccine preservative. Therefore, mercury could not be the cause of childhood autism. In March, new reports appeared showing Thorsen’s studies to be fraudulent; so he took off with what money was still in the cash box.

Scientists, Soldiers, and Citizens Revolt
Unlike Dr. Thorsen, one of the key researchers into the Gardasil vaccine Cevarix, Dr. Diane Harper, said No! to her employers and went public. She had worked on the development of this vaccine, which supposedly protects against cervical cancer. But then she became a whistle blower and informed the UK’s Sunday Express and the New York Times that this vaccine does nothing but possibly prevent genital warts and “will not decrease cervical cancer rates at all.” She also stated that this vaccine was being “over-marketed” and that parents of young girls should know that it carries the danger of serious side effects. Dr. Harper recalled that “Merck had lobbied every opinion leader, women’s group, medical society, politician, and went directly to the people … it created a sense of panic that says you have to have this vaccine now …”
The last place I would have expected a resounding No! to come from is the German army. In Germany, obedience to authority is a virtue. Last September, when the H1N1 hysteria gripped the world, Germany’s soldiers said “Nein, danke!” and refused the vaccine. That prompted Germany’s Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, chair of the Council of Europe’s 47-nation Sub-Committee on Health, to launch an investigation into the vaccine and the pandemic’s origins. Its findings included testimony from key researchers of the World Health Organization. The Sub-Committee ended up declaring that the “pandemic” is a “hoax” and the vaccine is a bust. Dr. Wodarg said that “people are much cleverer than the government and figured it out for themselves”, and so less than 6% of the citizens of France and Belgium, for example, took the vaccine. Even in Japan, where obedience also tends to be regarded a virtue, only a tiny minority took it.
With regard to food safety, refusal to put up with business as usual was also unexpected and dramatic. The National Cancer Institute took on the food industry, declaring that restaurant meats are high in carcinogens and that foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids “essentially reverse the risk” for prostate cancer.
The U.S. food industry voluntarily stopped the use of bovine growth hormone – a cause to which Dr. Shiv Chopra devoted most of his rebellious career at Health Canada. That long battle which he and his colleagues waged also publicized the cancer-producing effect on humans from food-producing animals given prophylactic antibiotics throughout their lives, as is the norm in industrial farming. The research supporting these findings has increased all over the world, and now this practice may soon be history because a natural substance, chitosan, appears to be a great deal better.
Monsanto was hit as hard as Big Pharma: the BBC reported on October 15, 2009, that the Supreme Court of France found Monsanto had lied all along about the safety of its flagship herbicide, the allegedly environmentally safe and harmless Roundup; the European Union classified it as “dangerous to the environment” because it is a carcinogen and environmentally unsafe.
The next blow came from an international team of researchers who proved that genetically modified corn causes damage to “the heart, the adrenal glands, the spleen,” the blood, and is toxic to the liver. This study certainly was welcome support for a chorus of No! that greeted the EU’s approval of a GM potato for certain restricted purposes; several countries announced their absolute refusal to cooperate with this EU decision.
In India last fall an eggplant war broke out, the fires of which were fanned by our very own Dr. Shiv Chopra who traveled throughout India explaining GMOs to the crowds. India has several hundred varieties of this vegetable, a staple in the Indian diet. When India approved a GMO variety, 11 States declared themselves GMO-free zones, and a dozen federal cabinet ministers expressed their unconditional refusal to cooperate. A proposed law limiting freedom of speech on GMO issues was publicly dismissed as lunacy and is now under review; although Dr. Chopra suggested it might be useful because millions of people would crowd the jails and information on the truth of GMOs would spread unchecked and then pour forth from India’s jails to rid not only that country, but possibly the world of this science fiction nightmare.
One of the greatest successes was scored by the American people who rose in protest against a bill proposed by Senator McCain that would have essentially handed over the natural supplements industry to Big Pharma and abolished the current protective legislation. Bill S. 3002 was killed on March 10th.

Public Action Makes a Difference
What can we do to further this process of truth and freedom in Canada? We can support MP Alex Atamenenko’s federal bill C-474 (via which would make it mandatory to consider the trade implications for any genetically modified food product before it gets Health Canada approval. The fact is, nobody wants to buy this stuff in Europe, so why grow it?
We can support the NHPPA, which is poised to take legal action against Health Canada for its arbitrary abuse of natural health products. Visit their website and consider their requests before you pop that next vitamin capsule. There is intelligent life on planet Earth, and you can be proof of that fact.
