Nafta Free Trade Destroys Economies Aug 20/14
NAFTA Is 20 Years Old – Here Are 20 Facts That Show How It Is Destroying The Economy
By Michael Snyder, on August 14th, 2014
Back in the early 1990s, the North American Free Trade Agreement was one of the hottest political issues in the country. When he was running for president in 1992, Bill Clinton promised that NAFTA would result in an increase in the number of high quality jobs for Americans that it would reduce illegal immigration. Ross Perot warned that just the opposite would happen. He warned that if NAFTA was implemented there would be a "giant sucking sound" as thousands of businesses and millions of jobs left this country. Most Americans chose to believe Bill Clinton. Well, it is 20 years later and it turns out that Perot was right and Clinton was dead wrong. But now history is repeating itself, and most Americans don't even realize that it is happening. As you will read about at the end of this article, Barack Obama has been negotiating a secret trade treaty that is being called "NAFTA on steroids", and if Congress adopts it we could lose millions more good paying jobs.
It amazes me how the American people can fall for the same lies over and over again. The lies that serial liar Barack Obama is telling about "free trade" and the globalization of the economy are the same lies that Bill Clinton was telling back in the early 1990s. The following is an excerpt from a recent interview with Paul Craig Roberts...
I remember in the 90′s when former Presidential candidate Ross Perot emphatically stated that NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) would create a giant “sucking sound” of jobs being extracted away from the U.S. He did not win the election, and NAFTA was instituted on Jan. 1, 1994. Now, 20 years later, we see the result of all the jobs that have been “sucked away” to other countries.
According to an article by the Economic Policy Institute on 1/3/14:
“Clinton and his collaborators promised that the deal would bring “good-paying American jobs,” a rising trade surplus with Mexico, and a dramatic reduction in illegal immigration. Considering that thousands of kids are pouring over the border as we speak, well, how’d that work out for us?
Many Americans like to remember Bill Clinton as a "great president" for some reason. Well, it turns out that he was completely and totally wrong about NAFTA. The following are 20 facts that show how NAFTA is destroying the economy...
#1 More than 845,000 American workers have been officially certified for Trade Adjustment Assistance because they lost their jobs due to imports from Mexico or Canada or because their factories were relocated to those nations.
#2 Overall, it is estimated that NAFTA has cost us well over a million jobs.
#3 U.S. manufacturers pay Mexican workers just a little over a dollar an hour to do jobs that American workers used to do.
#4 The number of illegal immigrants living in the United States has more than doubled since the implementation of NAFTA.
#5 In the year before NAFTA, the U.S. had a trade surplus with Mexico and the trade deficit with Canada was only 29.6 billion dollars. Last year, the U.S. had a combined trade deficit with Mexico and Canada of 177 billion dollars.
#6 It has been estimated that the U.S. economy loses approximately 9,000 jobs for every 1 billion dollars of goods that are imported from overseas.
#7 One professor has estimated that cutting the total U.S. trade deficit in half would create 5 million more jobs in the United States.
#8 Since the auto industry bailout, approximately 70 percent of all GM vehicles have been built outside the United States. In fact, many of them are now being built in Mexico.
#9 NAFTA hasn't worked out very well for Mexico either. Since 1994, the average yearly rate of economic growth in Mexico has been less than one percent.
#10 The exporting of massive amounts of government-subsidized U.S. corn down into Mexico has destroyed more than a million Mexican jobs and has helped fuel the continual rise in the number of illegal immigrants coming north.
#11 Someone making minimum wage in Mexico today can buy 38 percent fewer consumer goods than the day before NAFTA went into effect.
#12 Overall, the United States has lost a total of more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities since 2001.
#13 Back in the 1980s, more than 20 percent of the jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only about 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs.
#14 We have fewer Americans working in manufacturing today than we did in 1950 even though our population has more than doubled since then.
#15 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, only 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.
#16 As I wrote about recently, one out of every six men in their prime working years (25 to 54) do not have a job at this point.
#17 Because we have shipped millions of jobs overseas, the competition for the jobs that remain has become extremely intense and this has put downward pressure on wages. Right now, half the country makes $27,520 a year or less from their jobs.
#18 When adults cannot get decent jobs, it is often children that suffer the most. It is hard to believe, but more than one out of every five children in the United States is living in poverty in 2014.
#19 In 1994, only 27 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, more than 46 million Americans are on food stamps.
#20 According to Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University, 40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades if current trends continue.
For much more on this, please watch the video by Charlie LeDuff posted below. It is well worth a few minutes of your time...
So if NAFTA is so bad for American workers, then why don't our politicians just repeal it?
Well, unfortunately most of them are not willing to do this because it is part of a larger agenda. For decades, politicians from both major political parties have been working to slowly integrate North America. The eventual goal is to turn North America into another version of the European Union.
Just check out what former general and CIA chief David Petraeus had to say about this...
“After America comes North America,” Petraeus said confidently in answering the question about what comes after the United States, the theme of the panel discussion. “Are we on the threshold of the North American decade, question mark? I threw that away — threw away the question mark — and boldly proclaimed the coming North American decade, says the title now.” He also boasted about how the three economies have been put “together” over the last 20 years as part of the “implementation” of the North American Free Trade Act.
The “highly integrated” forces of Canada, the United States, and Mexico, Petraeus continued, will become the world’s powerhouse for energy and science. “There are four revolutions that are ongoing at various levels in each of the countries but foremost in the United States,” said the former CIA chief, who now serves as chairman of the KKR Global Institute. “The energy revolution is the first of those, which has created the biggest change in geopolitics since the rise of China since 1978.” The other “revolutions” include IT, manufacturing, and life sciences, which, “as highly integrated as they are, allow you to argue that after America comes North America,” he added.

Monsanto's Vaccine Will Kill More Than the Ebola Itself
AND HERE IT IS, THE KILLER VACCINE, PULLED OUT, MIRACULOUSLY JUST IN TIME
NFL Makes Stunning Announcement That Players Will Receive RFID Microchips For 2014 Season
The NFL has just made the stunning announcement that beginning in the 2014 football season, all players will receive RFID tracking chips that will be integrated into their shoulder pads. Their every movement will be tracked, cataloged and analyzed in massive computer systems, with the stats being spat back out in real-time. Overnight, millions of rapid sports fans the world over will be completely sold on the idea of human-wearable RFID microchip technology. From there, it will be the shortest of leaps to implanting those chips into the bodies of the players. The Devil is very smart, and his plan is right on schedule.
ebola And Ebola Vaccine Patents Found
A patent and a vaccine for Ebola haemorrhagic fever has been found and reported by Jonathan Eisen, editor of Uncensored Magazine in New Zealand early Monday morning, indicating possible asymmetrical warfare being waged against humanity. “THEY MADE IT (A LETHAL VARIANT OF THE WILD EBOLA). THEN THEY TOOK OUT A PATENT ON IT AS WELL AS A VACCINE, AS YOU DO IF YOU WANT TO SCARE OFF THE COMPETITION,” Eisen wrote in an email Monday. “HERE (below) IS THE ACTUAL PATENT. READ IT AND WEEP. “THEN STOCK UP ON COLLOIDAL SILVER, VITAMIN C, MMS and VITAMIN D.” Young Living Essential Oils is your best defense.

Why does the CDC own a patent on Ebola 'invention?'
Sunday, August 03, 2014
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
(NaturalNews) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control owns a patent on a particular strain of Ebola known as "EboBun." It's patent No. CA2741523A1 and it was awarded in 2010. You can view it here. (Thanks to Natural News readers who found this and brought it to our attention.)
Patent applicants are clearly described on the patent as including:
The Government Of The United States Of America As Represented By The Secretary, Department Of Health & Human Services, Center For Disease Control.
The patent summary says, "The invention provides the isolated human Ebola (hEbola) viruses denoted as Bundibugyo (EboBun) deposited with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC"; Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America) on November 26, 2007 and accorded an accession number 200706291."
It goes on to state, "The present invention is based upon the isolation and identification of a new human Ebola virus species, EboBun. EboBun was isolated from the patients suffering from hemorrhagic fever in a recent outbreak in Uganda."
It's worth noting, by the way, that EboBun is not the same variant currently believed to be circulating in West Africa. Clearly, the CDC needs to expand its patent portfolio to include more strains, and that may very well be why American Ebola victims have been brought to the United States in the first place. Read more below and decide for yourself...
Harvesting Ebola from victims to file patents
From the patent description on the EboBun virus, we know that the U.S. government:
1) Extracts Ebola viruses from patients.
2) Claims to have "invented" that virus.
3) Files for monopoly patent protection on the virus.
To understand why this is happening, you have to first understand what a patent really is and why it exists. A patent is a government-enforced monopoly that is exclusively granted to persons or organizations. It allows that person or organization to exclusively profit from the "invention" or deny others the ability to exploit the invention for their own profit.
It brings up the obvious question here: Why would the U.S. government claim to have "invented" Ebola and then claim an exclusively monopoly over its ownership?
U.S. Government claims exclusive ownership over its "invention" of Ebola
The "SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION" section of the patent document also clearly claims that the U.S. government is claiming "ownership" over all Ebola viruses that share as little as 70% similarity with the Ebola it "invented":
...invention relates to the isolated EboBun virus that morphologically and phylogenetically relates to known members filoviridae... In another aspect, the invention provides an isolated hEbola EboBun virus comprising a nucleic acid molecule comprising a nucleotide sequence selected from the group consisting of: a) a nucleotide sequence set forth in SEQ ID NO: 1; b) a nucleotide sequence that hybridizes to the sequence set forth in SEQ ID NO: 1 under stringent conditions; and c) a nucleotide sequence that has at least 70%, 75%, 80%, 85%, 90%, 95%, 96%, 97%, 98%, or 99% identity to the SEQ ID NO:
1. In another aspect, the invention provides the complete genomic sequence of the hEbola virus EboBun.
Ebola vaccines and propagation
The CDC patent goes on to explain it specifically claims patent protection on a method for propagating the Ebola virus in host cells as well as treating infected hosts with vaccines:
In another aspect, the invention provides a method for propagating the hEbola virus in host cells comprising infecting the host cells with the inventive isolated hEbola virus described above, culturing the host cells to allow the virus to multiply, and harvesting the resulting virions.
In another aspect, the invention provides vaccine preparations, comprising the inventive hEbola virus, including recombinant and chimeric forms of the virus, nucleic acid molecules comprised by the virus, or protein subunits of the virus. The invention also provides a vaccine formulation comprising a therapeutically or prophylactically effective amount of the inventive hEbola virus described above, and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.
No medical reason to bring Ebola to the United States
This patent may help explain why Ebola victims are being transported to the United States and put under the medical authority of the CDC. These patients are carrying valuable intellectual property assets in the form of Ebola variants, and the Centers for Disease Control clearly desires to expand its patent portfolio by harvesting, studying and potentially patenting new strains or variants.
Dr. Bob Arnot, an infectious disease specialist who spent time on the ground in developing nations saving lives, recently told Judge Jeanine, "There is no medical reason to bring them here, especially when you see how well Dr. Bradley was." (2)
There is, however, an entirely different reason to bring Ebola patients to America: so they can be exploited for medical experiments, military bioweapons harvesting or intellectual property claims.
Surely, medical authorities at Emory University and the CDC are working hard to save the lives of the two patients who have been transported to the U.S. But they are also pursuing something else at the same time: an agenda of isolating, identifying and patenting infectious disease agents for reasons that we can only imagine.
Only hoping to save lives?
On one hand, it's worth pointing out that the CDC's patent on Ebola is at least partially focused on methods for screening for Ebola and treating Ebola victims with drugs or vaccines. This seems like a worthwhile precaution against an infectious disease that clearly threatens lives.
On the other hand, why the patent? Patenting Ebola seems as odd as trying to patent cancer or diabetes. Why would a government organization claim to have "invented" this infectious disease and then claim a monopoly over its exploitation for commercial use?
Does the CDC hope to collect a royalty on Ebola vaccines? Is it looking to "invent" more variants and patent those too?
Make no mistake that billions of dollars in profits are at stake in all this. Shares of Tekmira surged over 11% last Friday as pressure was placed on the FDA to fast-track Ebola vaccine trials the company has set up. "Health campaigners have started a petition which has already been signed by approximately 15,500 people on change.org pressurizing FDA to approve the drug in the minimum possible time frame," reports BidnessEtc.com. (3)
Carefully scripted medical theater
With this, we start to see the structure of the elaborate medical theater coming together: A global pandemic panic, a government patent, the importation of Ebola into a major U.S. city, an experimental vaccine, the rise of a little-known pharmaceutical company and a public outcry for the FDA to fast-track the vaccine.
If Act II stays on course, this medical theater might someday involve a "laboratory accident" in a U.S. lab, the "escape" of Ebola into the population, and a mandatory nationwide Ebola vaccination campaign that enriches Tekmira and its investors while positioning the CDC with its virus patents as the "savior of the American people."
Yes, we've heard this music before, but the last time around it was called Swine Flu.
The formula is always the same: create alarm, bring a vaccine to market, then scare governments into buying billions of dollars’ worth of vaccines they don't need.

Doctors Claim Aspartame Dangers Aug 20/14
Let's say you never researched aspartame. You see all the trade organizations and other "ladies of the evening" funded by the manufacturers going overboard to convince you aspartame is safe. Consider:
1. Why have millions of articles filled with facts been written to say aspartame is deadly continued for over 30 years? Go to google and put in aspartame dangers and probably get a half a million hits and then read some of the articles. Then put in aspartame and cancer and get close to 2 million hits. Read the articles. Would millions of articles with references and indisputable facts be always available if aspartame was safe?
2. Read the history of approval and note FDA never scientifically proved aspartame to be safe. Instead they attempted to have the company indicted for fraud and revoked the petition for approval. Note the power of the company as both U.S. Prosecutors hired on with the defense team instead of indicting the company. Note that G. D. Searle hired Don Rumsfeld to get it on the market and that he "called in his markers" to do this, confirmed in congressional hearings. He got President Reagan to write an executive order making the FDA powerless to sign the revoked petition into law. Then he had the FDA Commissioner fired and appointed a friend of Rumsfeld, Arthur Hull Hayes, to over-rule the Board of Inquiry and allow aspartame to be approved.
3. Note once aspartame was on the market consumers complained of going blind, having seizures and 91 problems listed on the FDA's own report (including death!). http://www.mpwhi.com/92_aspartame_symptoms.pdf
4. Read the congressional hearings and note the outrage by physicians and researchers about allowing a poison on the market, and the only ones saying its safe are the paid professional organizations - "ladies of the evening", and those paid to do so. Read the testimony of those suffering from aspartame. http://www.mpwhi.com/congressional_record1.pdf and http://www.mpwhi.com/congressional_record_1985.pdf Note that the lead scientist and toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, told Congress that aspartame was illegally on the market because it violated the Delaney Amendment which forbids allowing anything in food that causes cancer. His last words were "And if the FDA violates its own laws who is left to protect the public?" Their compliance officer, Jerome Bressler, said to me those very same words. Also note FDA toxicologist, Dr. Verrett also said in 1987 that aspartame is on the market never having been proven safe! It was allowed on the market in 1981 although I was even told by the builder of the Aspartame plant in Augusta, Georgia that they were selling it before 1981.
5. Read the Bressler Report authored by this compliance officer of the shenanigans and fraud of the manufacturer. http://www.mpwhi.com/complete_bressler_report.pdf When I read this report I noticed part of it was missing. When Jerome Bressler retired I called him and thanked him for being honest and telling the truth about aspartame. He asked me if I noticed part of his report was missing and I said yes. He begged me to find two of the studies the FDA had removed, and told me the public had no idea of the horrors that aspartame could cause and these studies were the worst. I told this to Doctors H. J. Roberts and Russell Blaylock who also called Jerome Bressler and confirmed these facts. It took me 8 years to find these studies, but finally with the help of Dr. Madeline Price who worked with the famed Dr. John Olney who attempted to prevent approval of this deadly addictive, excitoneurotoxic, carcinogenic, genetically engineered, teratogenic drug and adjuvant, the studies were found. No wonder Bressler was so concerned. They were teratology studies showing neural tube defects - autism, spina bifida and cleft palate. Now you understand the autism epidemic. The FDA statement: "aspartame causes birth defects".
Dr. Roberts had asked his congressman to get these studies and it should be noted that the FDA wrote and send they couldn't be released, they were confidential. So here 30 years later the FDA knew aspartame was causing birth defects and autism and still did not want the public to know. They were willing to continue allow pregnant women to use the product with no warning of birth defects, and have babies born with autism and other horrors. You can understand why I call them Fatal Drugs Allowed folks. Maybe they should be called the Food and Death Association. I added these studies back to the Bressler Report and had Lane Shore, Mission Possible Chicago, take them to Jerome Bressler who was now in a nursing home. Lane has lost 8 members of his family from aspartame and had mouth cancer from it. He still suffers from the ear problems (aspartame destroys the central nervous system). Lane became a dear friend of Jerome Bressler and visited him often and spoke with him on the phone. Bressler until his dying day warned people in the nursing and when he saw them drinking it in the cafeteria he would say, "don't drink that its poison, its poison!"
Monica Eng of the Chicago Tribune, Lane Shore, Diane Murphy, Mission Possible Illinois, and myself visited Bressler one night as he reminisced about the years G. D. Searle attempted aspartame approval. He told how they would lock their doors from the FDA and Dr. Adrian Gross would shout "open the doors or we will get a court order". They did everything they could to hide the facts. Do you want to believe aspartame is safe?
Jerome Bressler has now passed on but he will never be forgotten for trying to warn that aspartame is a deadly poison and should never have been approved.
6. If aspartame was safe would a thousand page medical text be available on the symptoms and diseases and cancers it causes, as well as other medical texts and countless books on its horrors?
"Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic", www.sunsentpress.com by H. J. Roberts, M.D.
"Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills" , www.russellblaylockmd.com by Russell Blaylock, M.D.
"While Science Sleeps: A Sweetener Kills" by Dr. Woodrow Monte, www.whilesciencesleeps.com
See the Aspartame Resource Guide at the end of this article.
7. If aspartame is so safe than why does the FDA refuse to answer the attempted bans. There are laws. The FDA must answer in 180 days. On an "imminent health hazard" they must answer in a week or ten days according to DC Attorney James Turner who worked with Dr. Olney to prevent approval. I filed my demand for ban in 2002 and the imminent health hazard in 2007. Neither have been answered. The FDA wrote and said they had more important to do. They did call in 2009. I said " I lecture all over the world and people are sick and dying". The answer: "So what, we need to depopulate!" Famous words from the agency that is suppose to protect the public!
8. On what basis did the European Food Safety Authority say aspartame is safe? There were 82 scientific peer reviewed studies showing aspartame is deadly., EFSA threw them out and said they were unreliable. So they had full knowledge aspartame is not safe and did this because of a conflict of interest. Why have their doors not been shut forever?
Bans in states and countries have been attempted since aspartame was approved. It was banned in Romania because it causes cancer. With all this knowledge the FDA has just approved another aspartame product even more potent, Advantame: http://www.mpwhi.com/how_safe_is_advantame.htm This must be repealed and never allowed to be sold.
September is Aspartame Awareness Month. Dr. Ralph Walton is doing an aspartame birth defect study. If you have given birth since 1984 please complete the form on www.mpwhi.com, second banner, very short and return to Dr. Ralph Walton at firstname.lastname@example.org We will be doing this all month. It doesn't matter what country, the only criteria is that you gave birth in l984 or afterwards.

Caution: UK non-diet soft drinks
laced with artificial sweeteners!
Science & communications officer, ANH-Intl
The infamous artificial sweetener aspartame is definitely, absolutely, incontrovertibly safe, or so the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) continues to tell us. It’s also cheaper to produce than sugar. Is that why it’s making the jump from diet soft drinks to the non-diet, ‘full fat’ versions – and frequently not alone?
Although I’m not at all keen on them personally, I know plenty of people who regularly take soft drinks and even some soft-drink ‘addicts’. I often idly pick up their bottles to examine what dastardly ingredients might lurk within in the latest updated formulations. Recently, I spotted something that sent my eyebrows rocketing skyward: the inclusion of artificial sweeteners like aspartame or acesulfame K in sugar-loaded, non-diet drinks! Many of us have been conditioned to avoid diet drinks because of our aversion or sensitivity to sweeteners. But now we have to be much more careful to check food and drink labels in the non-diet sector as well. One quick trip to a local UK supermarket later, cameraphone in hand, was enough to gather evidence of this seemingly strange phenomenon.
This supermarket-brand lime cordial contains lots of glucose–fructose syrup, AKA high-fructose corn syrup – a gift from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) – along with acesulfame K.
Apple Tango proudly proclaims it doesn’t contain “any of those poncy ingredients like ginseng or elderflower”, but tops up its sugar content (5.25 g per 250 mL) with both acesulfame K and aspartame. Give us the ginseng and elderflower, a whack less sugar and no artificial sweeteners every time! And in case you’re wondering, it’s the same story for Cherry Tango, although the Orange version prefers the controversial sweetener saccharin to acesulfame K.
Not to be outdone, Tango’s competitor, Fanta, weighs in with both acesulfame K and aspartame. And a whopping 17.3 g of sugar per 250 mL.
Lilt, however, deems it necessary to cram in no less than three artificial sweeteners in its non-diet incarnation: acesulfame K, aspartame and sodium saccharin. Sugar content? 12 g per 250 mL.
Work this one out: the diet version, Lilt Zero, contains only two sweeteners, one less than the non-diet version!
R White’s Lemonade contains the same three sweeteners as Lilt.
While Schweppes lemonade manages with a mere two sugar substitutes, along with 11 g of sugar per 250 mL.
Even Schweppes Indian tonic water contains saccharin.
Fanta, Lilt, R White’s and Schweppes are all owned by one company: Coca-Cola. So, while ‘full-fat’ Coke itself doesn’t contain any artificial sweeteners – at least so far – many of its parent company’s other brands contain several.
UK bears the brunt
We asked our friend and colleague Corinne Enders of Wissenschaft & Natürliche Gesundheit (Science & Natural Health), who also translates ANH-Intl articles into German, to investigate the situation in Germany.
Fanta contains no artificial sweeteners at all. Neither does Schweppes tonic water.
Punica, a brand similar to the UK’s Tango, contains sodium cyclamate (Natriumcyclamat) and saccharin (Saccharin-Natrium) in its tropical (pictured), cherry and fruity red versions.
From this limited survey, it would seem that UK consumers are confronted with a far greater array of artificial sweeteners in soft drinks than their German counterparts.
A sweet way to save money
There are two obvious reasons why artificial sweeteners may be creeping into non-diet soft drinks. One is cost. In general, it’s far cheaper to manufacture or buy artificial sweeteners than it is to extract natural sugar from beet or cane crops (Figure 1). However, although the world sugar price hit a record high of around $0.34/lb in 2011, it has since dropped back to $0.16 cents/lb (figures correct as of Tuesday 5th August 2014). So, although sugar prices are a long way from their peak, soft drink manufacturers can still make an easy killing by going down the artificial sweetener route.
According to a 2012 report from the International Sugar Organization (ISO): “There is evidence of some direct substitution of HIS [high-intensity sweeteners] for sugar, particularly through blending of caloric sweeteners and HIS in non-diet products...the advent of even more potent HIS...is compounding incentives for food/beverage manufactures [sic] to substitute sugar (and HFCS) with HIS in non-diet products.” Clearly, this strategy is not about to reverse any time soon, a trend that the report foresees will cause increased competition for sugar in the medium to long term
Feeding the monster
Secondly, it’s highly likely that the soft drinks industry is responding to a widespread and ongoing change in preferences toward ever-sweeter tastes, along with some recognition of the public’s desire to reduce calories from sugar. Sugar, especially fructose, is in a bewildering range of foods these days and carries a lengthy list of health problems in its wake. Even more disconcerting is the apparent desire of the food and drink giants to continue to tickle our palates and brains with sweetness. Recent published science shows that sugary foods and drinks, including alcohol, can create addiction through an effect on the nucleus accumbens in our forebrain. How better to create a generation of addicts but to surround people with sweetened foods, even if the calorie count might sometimes appear a little lower?
Oh, and because these sweeteners are determined as safe by the likes of EFSA and the FDA, let’s ignore their potential health consequences!
The 2012 ISO report informs us that “A blend of sweeteners tends to impart a more rounded aftertaste with reduced shortcomings of individual sweeteners. This is referred to as qualitative synergy.” Welcome to a bizarre world where soft drink fans can easily avoid sugar and its known health dangers, but are confronted with human-made sweeteners and corporate concepts like ‘qualitative synergy’ at every turn. We await the inevitable bleed-through of artificial sweeteners into other food sectors as the media backlash against sugar gathers pace.
There is a bright side to all this, of course. Corporations appear to be locked into a short-sighted pattern of greed that they risk forcing consumers into a stark choice: either eat and drink hyper-sweet – sorry, ‘qualitatively synergistic’ – and profoundly unhealthy foods stuffed full of artificial chemicals, or make the switch from processed foods entirely. Assuming enough people become awake to the dangers, it’s a strategy that could well backfire on the corporations in the long run, to the benefit of human health worldwide. Remember: we, the citizens, hold the power. Big Food will stop making products for which there is no demand. Please forward this widely to your contacts, especially those responsible for children.
I sent an email to the press offices of both Coca-Cola UK, owners of Fanta, Lilt, R White’s and Schweppes, and Britvic UK, owners of Tango, to ask for their point of view on why artificial sweeteners are now found in their non-diet products. As yet, I’ve heard nothing – but we’ll keep you posted should any replies be forthcoming.
Call to action
- How simple does this get? Cut out soft drinks from your diet entirely, both ‘full fat’ and diet versions! If you’re drinking plenty of either, start by replacing one or two servings/cans per day with an equivalent volume or more of purified or spring water. Then taper down to zero from there, perhaps by cutting out one extra serving per week
- And while you’re at it…why not cut out processed foods and replace them with fresh, locally grown foodstuffs that are organic where possible?

Consciousness Guardian Lisa Renee Update! Aug 19/14
Consciousness is Energy
(friends remember NAA stands for Negative Alien Agenda that controlled and dictated to every government and major corporation on the planet as well as sectors Lisa describes in this update enjoy Tami)
During the Ascension Cycle the planet and humanity is undergoing vibrational shifts which radically impact the individual mind, the collective race mind, the planetary mind; all which exist at uniquely different frequency rates of Consciousness. Each of the uniquely different frequency rates of Consciousness form a distinctive level of energetic intelligence or sentience. Sentience is the varied ability of any type of entity to have a subjective perceptual experience as a characteristic of intelligence or as a facet of developing higher sensory perception.
The higher the overall frequency of the Consciousness that uniquely forms the energy of any entity is the relationship to more advanced levels of intelligence and sentience. It is a natural biological process for all human beings to have the ability to evolve and to Expand Consciousness whichincreases levels of sentience.
- What is Consciousness? Consciousness is energy, and energy is Conscious, they are both interchangeable. All energy is intelligent. Our Soul and Monadic spiritual body is Consciousness and therefore Intelligent Energy.
- What is Sentience? Sentience is the ability of any type of entity to have a subjective sensory or perceptual experience as a characteristic of intelligence, higher mind or as a facet of developing higher sensory perception. Sentience levels, the acquiring of senses, are based on the quality of energy and Consciousness rate of frequency which works as a function through that body.
- What is Expanding Consciousness? Increasing energy through the intentional connection with higher frequencies is what changes the rate of vibration. What we think and how we behave is a rate of frequency. If we change how we think and behave we raise our frequency. Access to higher frequency is how one accesses higher intelligence which are levels of higher operating sentience. Expanding Consciousness goes beyond acquiring mental knowledge in linear thinking and into the realm of direct cognition and higher sensory perceptual experiences. Expanding Consciousness allows one to perceive things as they really are and not what one wishes them to be. Expanding Consciousness means:
- increasing energy to the body, mind, heart and spirit
- increasing intelligence through non linear thinking
- increasing consciousness frequency
- increasing sentience and sensory abilities
- increasing connectivity between body functions; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual
- increasing awareness of intelligent energy in all things
- increasing the connectivity of higher spiritual bodies
- increasing frequency rate of combined energetic bodies
- increasing energetic synthesis which initiates dormant DNA/RNA
- increasing health and wellbeing through homeostasis
- increasing peaceful and benevolent feelings
- decreasing energy blocks which reduce density levels in matter
- decreasing pain, addiction and suffering
- decreasing deception, lies and delusions from magical or wishful thinking
With the Sophianic Body Correction underway, the transformation of our Expanding Consciousness merges with the greater scientific understanding of initiating previously dormant DNA/RNA. The capacity of DNA activation made through expanding consciousness, by expanding energy and higher frequency rates, plays an important and direct role in spiritual ascension. The continual expansion of consciousness will push humanity to go beyond linear thinking and adapt to nonlinear thinking in order to resolve the many issues humanity faces.
Linear vs. Non-Linear Thinking
Linear thinking is the process of thought following known step-by-step progression where a response to a step must be elicited before another step is taken. (Step 1, Step 2, Step 3….) Linear thinkers put things in order as they experience them in a sequential manner, like a straight line. A straight line between two points has been the way we have been educated as the most effective way to get from one place to another. Linear thinkers see the world mostly as black and white (the polarity structure or bi-wave influence). A person limited to linear thinking has mental blocks in reaching more options for resolution or reaching compromise because they cannot perceive outside a certain parameter. An example of limitation in linear thinking is the capacity to creatively problem solve an issue if the primary procedure breaks down, to find alternative ways, to inquire or ask the right question in the problem solving equation, or to find the balance point for resolution. Additionally, linear thinkers do not communicate with the consciousness inherent in living things, like the land, animals and nature. Because linear thinking is repetitious and in many situations the outcome or result never changes, this stunts higher sensory perception and suppresses consciousness. The mind gets stuck in a gear of belief and linear experience that it cannot shift out of. The more inflexible the mind, the weaker it is.
Most people perceive the external structures of reality based on information conveyed by their main senses, which is their operating sentience level. Some people have five main senses that are controlled by their Unconscious Mind functions, and others with developed higher sensory perception, have accumulated more sensory ability by expanding their access into their higher mind function. If sensory information is missing, partially blocked, or misunderstood through wrong perception, people impose their semblance of linear order without the benefit of all the proper information. This is assuming something to be true and accurate while holding only the tiniest infinitesimal variable that prevents one from seeing the whole facts or larger picture. Purely linear thinking ultimately confines the intelligence to the lower aspects of mind and lower instinctual senses. Linear thinking contracts energy. Linear thinking contracts consciousness and limits expanded sensory feelings such as intuition. Thought addicted linear thinkers close down their heart and this closes down their body feeling mechanism.
Non-linear thinkers have developed a capacity for spiral thinking and problem solving which extends into multiple directions or as an outward expansion spiral. Rather than thinking in step by step moving in one direction, spiral thinkers inherently know that there are multiple starting points from which one can apply the solution to a problem. Spiral thinkers are able to traverse the many directions the problem may have and find the central root or causal issue of the problem, rather than trying to solve the surface symptom. Most world problems have a causation of which many layers of other problems are stacked on top in layers as the result. This is the same as a medical diagnosis giving a label to something that does not address the deeper cause and its root infection. Most linear thinking keeps the mind sliding on the surface going back and forth and finally in a circle which remains static. Nonlinear or spiral thinking allows the mind to go deeper to the root of the problem, spiral it out in multiple directions from its source, which is the most effective way to impact deeper resolution and change. Spiral thinkers are accessing beyond the functions of the three layers of ego mind. They access a new higher sensory ability through the contact made to the higher mind, which is a function of higher consciousness or spirit-energy intelligence. Training your mind to go beyond linear thought and into nonlinear thinking expands energy, expands consciousness and potentially opens ones heart and feeling centers.
How Does Energy Contract and Expand?
Energy is Consciousness and it either contracts or expands to maintain or increase its frequency rate. The process of how fast or slow energy contracts back towards its center point of source field is the Vibration rate. The process of how fast or slow that same energy expands away from the center point of the source field is the Oscillation rate. The combination of both the pattern of Vibration (contraction) and Oscillation (expansion) speed is what determines the frequency rate of all energy and things. As our personal, collective and planetary consciousness raises frequency, the matter world, including our physical bodies, also becomes less dense as our frequency increases.
The meaning of higher frequency consciousness and sentience are intentionally confused through linear thinkers. Some of those linear thinkers are in panel debates arguing in circles as the supposed experts because they have many initials behind their name and credentials in their scientific field. Rather than have open dialogues of cross pollination in the progressive development of mainstream sciences, divide and conquer mentality is present within the circles of experts competing for some precedence in their field. The NAA does not want any of the scientific communities collaborating together in nonlinear thought in a unified stance for serving humanitarian based ethics. That would foster expanding consciousness, compassion and empathy for the human condition where nonlinear thinking could actually solve some major planetary problems. They would rather reward the standard procedures which generate conflicts of interest, backbiting, lack of empathy and one-upmanship for a competitive race to the finish line to see who gets the next awarded grant money from the Rockefellers.
Mainstream Science Confirmation Bias
Linear thinking along with this problem of selfish ambition before human ethics, contributes to scientific confirmation bias. No person in academia wants to suffer the consequences of making new scientific discoveries that the mainstream science community will aggressively crucify. Academic careers are ruined in this way while out casting the target for victimization. Sadly, this negative behavior is neither supportive to developing human potential, nor resolving the many critical problems of the planet through acquiring new scientific technologies.
Depending on which of the mainstream sciences that attempts to discuss the nature of Consciousness, Consciousness takes on a variety of meanings in the area of science that has confirmation bias based on peer consensus. Confirmation bias is the tendency to favor information that confirms one's beliefs or personally invested hypotheses. People display this bias when they gather in a "reality bubble" of group consciousness, that they interpret in a biased way to defend their power, status or position.
At Oxford Universities with such fellow emeritus as Charles Darwin and his protégé Richard Dawkins, there is an intellectually superior advocacy of atheistic science as an agenda in the high status, high powered and highly awarded academics. Atheism holds the belief there is no soul, there is no after life existence, and all of the people that have those experiences directly are discredited through a diagnosis of delusions or brain hallucination. In his 2006 book "The God Delusion", Dawkins contends that a supernatural creator does not exist and that religious faith is a delusion—"a fixed false belief". The likelihood that any person achieving a Master Degree in Science at Oxford would be willing to challenge this absolute precedence, set by fellow emeritus that atheism and Darwin are intellectually superior as models of evolutionary biology, is made slim to none. Anything beyond this Darwinian belief system is thought idiotic and ignorant because Oxford implies it so. This is confirmation bias.
Although Dawkins has reacted to the religious dogma of NAA religion with atheistic fervor, (and we all know why) he has missed the major connection point. The marriage between expanding consciousness, higher levels of operating sentience and ethical world humanism all relate entirely. One cannot be a true humanist and be separated from the Soul by insisting it is a delusion. The Soul is an intrinsic part of the empathic sentience of a human being. The World Soul and its empathic sentience have nothing to do with World Religion. When one cannot recognize Soul in the self, one cannot recognize Soul or levels of sentience that is present in other living things. This sets precedence for confirmation bias for the scientific basis of atheism across all mainstream sciences. Most certainly this gentleman has not had direct communication with his Soul or contact with higher intelligence beyond himself. These are the people in academic leadership responsible for molding the world's most prestigious educators and thinkers.
The goal is to create intellectual mind machines at the most prestigious academic levels to block direct sensory experience of higher Consciousness, as directed through highly respected faculty like Dawkins. This way humans will use high technology in barbaric methods to cut into other humans, chop up animals, rip out body parts, fuse DNA with cross species and genetically implant our brain with computer chips as the academics at Oxford applaud this as humanist based "evolutionary biology". This is the newly burgeoning ideology of Transhumanism, merging eugenics, artificial intelligence and technology with human biology, which essentially is the idea of evolving humans into cyborgs. This is a perfect cover for promoting the Controller reptilian mind control in the academic ranks to oppress human consciousness and shut down direct knowledge of heart based sentience.
Defending Ego Position in Confirmation Bias
Any group of people will display confirmation bias when the impact of acquiring new knowledge, new sentience will create drastic changes around emotionally charged issues and in deeply entrenched beliefs. We have the same issues here in educating people about Ascension, World Humanism and Expanding Consciousness. People tend to interpret ambiguous evidence to support their existing position to defend their belief systems that their mind is most comfortable with. Rather than knowing the truth and considering evidence, when people are in fear based bias, they may aggressively attack others. Generally, this is the ego taking a position personal and brandishing its sword to defend its personal beliefs, whether accurate, true or not. People that identify with an ego position feel personally attacked even when it has nothing to do with them as a person. This keeps the human race playing out the archetypes of drama in the victim and victimizer roles interchangeably to maintain their confirmation bias.
Those of us on the expanding consciousness path of Ascension must be aware to always question beliefs and confirm our own direct experiences staying clear of confirmation bias because we may feel afraid of the consequences. Selfish Tyrants intimidate others to keep control while Compassionate Leaders serve the vision for the highest potential for all. Together, we must stand in our truth, be true to our heart while developing clear humanitarian ethics and strength in the development of our personal character, the best way we are capable to stay awake.
We must train ourselves to learn about practicing Compassion, if this quality of loving kindness is not naturally present. Compassion is an important facet required to continually Expand Consciousness; we must be willing to expand beyond our current beliefs without fear in order to experience our greater connection with energy and all of life that is fully sentient. If we remain mentally closed, rigid and inflexible, wallowing in the pain of our vices, refusing to adapt to required changes, we constrict energy and wither away. Compassion expands our heart, expands our intelligent energy, expands our sentience and allows us to perceive the holistic parts that interconnect into the Whole. Compassion is the key ingredient to developing human potential, accessing higher knowledge, experiencing higher sentience and feeling benevolence towards all of life. We must practice compassion to expand consciousness and help to reshape world organizations.
Shaping of World Organizations
There are five pillars of the main structures that use anti-human control which influence all planetary affairs. These pillars of society are manipulated to shape all World Organizations through the agenda of control enforced by the Power Elite classes.
- Power Elites or Controller
- Military Industrial
- Intelligence Agencies, Covert Groups and Government
- Controlled Media and Press
In choosing one of the main Pillars of Society – Religious-Academic-Financial - we can see how even though these three areas of belief systems feel completely separate and opposed from each other, in reality they are not. They are used interchangeably to appear in diametric opposition to the onlooker, but that is not how they actually work. They all have the same underlying goal to reinforce each other to manipulate power to be given to the top of the chain. Divide and Conquer mentality to continually create victims and victimizers is how all of these pillars of society work. So let us choose the Academic world for an example. (spirituality has nothing to do with what you where on your body, head or what building you worship in. Tami)
Current mainstream atheistic science forms the current parameter of the collective accepted belief systems in the academic world which further direct the consortium of world organizations which impact human and planetary affairs. Science promotes atheistic consensus and barbaric medical practices, while Religion promotes spiritual terrorism and war through Hell fire and brimstone. Both make massive amounts of money for the financial, medical and military sectors with the primary goal to invest in controlling human beings. Effectively, they are all functioning components of the same thing.
Science and medicine is monitored aggressively as these mainstream world organizations are used to reinforce anti-human and anti-life ideological beliefs in the public. These anti-life belief systems require the termination of any progress or discovery which proves Consciousness exists through the consistent elimination of the acquisition of any knowledge that recognizes nature and life as fully sentient. Terminating mainstream knowledge of the existence of extraterrestrials or extra-dimensionals is another scientific strategy to suppress the higher knowledge of sentience beyond human life. In many cases the method to terminate that knowledge from becoming public is through persecution, victimization, and threat of bodily harm or lost economy. Most scientists are forced to play the NAA game with their rules and stay in a certain parameter of discovery, or be forced to lose their lifetime careers, and financial ability to support their families. This is why we, as the public, must increase our compassion, awareness and support for those who endure these unethical situations.
What would happen to the Military Complex, Multinational Corporations and the World Economic Industries that profit directly from the anti-human ideological beliefs rampant on earth, if those humans truly experienced and understood that all Life, even non-human life, is fully sentient and aware? That all thoughts, actions, behaviors, wars, killing and murder are recorded in consciousness; no one gets away with hiding anything even if they think they are. It is all recorded in intelligent energy that is conscious. That is the result of Expanding Consciousness, where potential dialogues in such conflict can begin to be fruitful.
The human collective has been shaped upon the influence from extra dimensional sources that remain hidden about our true origin. Hence, the true nature of science merged with ethical philosophy as in the pursuit of higher knowledge, has been extracted and replaced with a soul less machine promoting divide and conquer belief systems. If a highly intellectual scientific atheist cannot prove existence of such things as the Soul, or as animals and plants having sentience, it allows the mad scientist community to slice and dice body parts, extract vital organs and tissues without regard for the total consciousness that functions within the holistic organism. Today's mainstream science ridicules new discoveries, outcasts those that want to develop and improve human potential, and persecutes those who choose interests beyond profiting the multinational corporations and stockholders.
This is why it is left to each of us to be our own spiritual scientist, be an ethical human based researcher and true scientist to test out the nature of consciousness for ourselves. Be an experiencer! Then we may do our best to share our knowledge of consciousness with others through stating calm, unbiased and evidential facts.
The Nature of Consciousness
The first thing that is important to understand is that all that exists, whether seen or unseen, when it is broken down into its simplest and most basic form of energy, consists of a rate of frequency.
To begin to comprehend the nature of Consciousness, and to directly experience Expanding Consciousness through increasing personal frequency, one must go beyond flat linear thinking, thought addiction and stop accepting everything one has been told by other people as fact and truth. The public has been lied to repeatedly about the true motivation behind many world events that are used to continually steal energy resources. Stealing energy is also directly related to the theft of consciousness. Tyrants wreak havoc on the population through oppression, taking away fundamental human needs to enforce fears of survival while promoting genocide and war to feed the pillars of society that continually enforce anti human belief systems.
