Do We Eat and Drink Adulterated Food?

Do we eat and drink adulterated food? Yes, we do! Because adulterated food is forced upon us by government authority and government police power.

There are many that fall into this category. Let’s take one big one! It’s processed milk. "Got milk?"

The processed milk that is forced upon the public is a dead, lifeless liquid that simulates whole raw milk only in its white color and similar taste. Pure water would be far healthier.

Government inspectors confirm that processed heated milk is dead and lifeless and okay for sale to the public by their alkaline-phosphatase enzyme test. This enzyme must be dead or the milk cannot be sold.

Without the live alkaline-phosphatase enzyme, processed milk is worthless for bone health. Bone will not renew without this enzyme. Also there is the appearance of bone pain in the lower limbs.

So we have widespread osteoporosis because we drink dead milk which is not fit for human consumption.

It gets worse! Our blood calcium only—with the live enzyme—is what stands between us and pathogenic disease. This is called ionized calcium and it is a preventive for Epstein Barr, back pain, fever in children and adults, canker sores and fever blisters, seizures and more. Even though most emergency patients who enter the hospital have high fever, doctors never check for low ionized or difusable calcium. A sick body indicated by high fever needs ionized calcium in the blood. It is not available in processed cooked milk.

Diarrhea is the leading cause of death in the world. Processed milk does not inhibit salmonella and e-coli infection as would raw whole milk with the live enzyme and calcium lactate. The single greatest predictor of survival of lethal infection is ionized or difusable calcium which is not available in processed milk.

The medical publication, The Lancet, states that resistance to tuberculosis increased in children fed raw milk instead of pasteurized or processed sweet milk.

In processed milk, vitamins, hormones and enzymes that control mineral assimilation, body development and general resistance to disease are not available. Processed milk promoted by the government diminishes the potency of the growth-promoting factors that determine the skeletal development of children.

Today’s overgrown youth get massive doses of synthetic hormones from hamburgers from beef cattle fed synthetic growth hormones.

Children fed on processed milk should have unprocessed orange juice and raw potato water added to keep down susceptibility to infection.

The Lancet states that in children, the teeth are less likely to decay on a diet of raw milk than with processed milk. Processed milk destroys vitamin A, vitamin B complex and vitamin C.

In a study conducted by Dr. Francis Pottinger on cats:

Group I: Cats fed raw milk.
Results: Move about well in pen. Good, clear coat, good agility, sexual interest with other cats, sheen to coat, reproduce healthy offspring.

Group II: Cats fed processed milk like we get today.
Results: Developed arthritis, very lethargic, impaired coordination, dental deterioration, bones were paper thin and soft, very small structures, developed allergies, exhaustion, failure in development and by the third generation could not reproduce.

This is a picture of one of many adulterated foods that by law we are forced to consume.

Hydrogen Peroxide Cancer Treatment

It has been clinically demonstrated that the spread or metastasis of cancer is directly proportional to the amount of oxygen around the cancer cells. The more oxygen, the slower the cancer spreads. The less oxygen, the faster the cancer spreads. If cancer cells get enough oxygen they die because they are anaerobic. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) provides extra oxygen atoms that not only slow down the spread of cancer, but also kills cancer cells.

This refers to an intravenous drip (IV) used by doctors using dilute 35 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide.

Nobel prize winner Otto Warburg, M.D., demonstrated more than 50 years ago the basic difference between normal cells and cancer cells. Both derive energy from glucose, while cancer cells break down glucose without oxygen, yielding only 1/15 the energy per glucose molecule that a normal cell produces. This is why cancer cells have such a huge appetite for sugar, and also why people who consume excessive quantities of sugar tend to get cancer more often. Note: I don’t think oncologists warn cancer patients not to eat sugar and stay on a low-carbohydrate diet.

Controlling cancer can be done by creating alkaline pH which will free up oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide, or other oxygen therapies, is one of the most widely used cancer therapies worldwide because hydrogen peroxide provides oxygen to the cancer cells safely and effectively. Hydrogen peroxide is also used for other ailments, including AIDS and other virus- or bacteria-based illnesses.

From David G. Williams, D.C. (chiropractor): “A single atom of oxygen, however, is very reactive and is referred to as a free radical. Over the past several years, we’ve continually read that these free radicals are responsible for all types of ailments and even premature aging. What many writers seem to forget, however, is that our bodies create and use free radicals to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi.

“In fact, the cells responsible for fighting infection and foreign invaders in the body (your white blood cells) make hydrogen peroxide and use it to oxidize any offending culprits. The intense bubbling you see when hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with a bacteria-laden cut or wound is the oxygen being released and bacteria being destroyed. The ability of our cells to produce hydrogen peroxide is essential for life. H2O2 is not some undesirable by-product or toxin, but instead is a basic requirement for good health.” (From the Alternatives Newsletter by David G. Williams)

Seniors may boost bone health with exercise, report says

Seniors may boost bone health with exercise, report says According to researchers, moderate exercise can be a great health resource in that it may help boost and maintain bone strength and prevent falls and fractures in older people.

To arrive at this conclusion, Cochrane researchers conducted a systematic review of available data from 111 trials that included 55,303 older people. They found that in that group the individuals who were more physically active had on average greater strength, flexibility, balance and endurance than their peers who were not.

According to lead researcher Lesley Gillespie from Dunedin School of Medicine at the University of Otago in New Zealand, exercise regimes such as supervised group workout, tai chi or individually prescribed exercise programs at home have shown the highest benefits.

The analysis suggested furthermore that falls, with the accompanying risk of serious fractures, were reduced in those who gradually ceased to use certain types of sleep medications, worked to reduce anxiety and depression and had cataract surgery on the first affected eye earlier than originally planned.

Of course, nutritional supplements containing calcium and vitamin D may also be an option for those who would like to boost their bone health.

Does the stock market upswing mean we are out of the woods?

Does the stock market upswing mean we are out of the woods? A recent stock market rally fueled by better than expected earnings has had commentators predict the end of the current financial troubles, but some analysts caution against excessive optimism.

Surprisingly strong quarterly earnings and growing opposition to a massive government spending bill caused a more than 11 percent increase in the major indices in the course of just two weeks from July 13 to July 24, one of the largest in history.

However, some economist suggests that the rally may not last or herald a more sustained recovery as the vast majority of positive earnings results stem from cost cutting and workforce trimming.

"[Y]ou can’t keep on shrinking your way to profitability," says Steven Ricchiuto, chief economist at Mizuo Securities USA, quoted by a CNN business blog.

"Eventually, you do damage to your end users," he adds. "You have to get revenues up to have a sustainable upturn."

In fact, for many companies even while earnings have risen, actual revenues have gone down, indicating a persisting weakness in demand.

Ultimately as long as unemployment remains high, squeezing wallets and consumer confidence, any stock market rally will be temporary, analysts believe.

Committee vote on Sotomayor prompts criticism

Committee vote on Sotomayor prompts criticismThe Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-6 to recommend the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor as a Supreme Court Justice yesterday, prompting criticism from some conservative quarters.

On the Republican side only one of seven committee members, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, voted for the nomination.

Sotomayor has spent much time defending herself from allegations that she is an activist judge and that she will bring a racial and gender bias to the highest court.

Her critics have queried her on an opinion she issued in 2008 – which was subsequently overturned by the Supreme Court – that supported the city of New Haven’s decision to annul the results of a firefighter promotion exam because almost no minorities qualified.

According to media reports, only five Republicans are planning to support the nomination when the full Senate gets to vote on the nomination next week.

Among those who expressed outrage over the vote was gun rights expert and a former National Rifle Association editor John M. Snyder who currently serves as public affairs director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, treasurer of the Second Amendment Foundation and serves on the Advisory Board of the National Association of Chiefs of Police.

Among other things, he noted Sotomayor responded "I don’t know" to the question as to whether an individual citizen of the United States has a right to self-defense.

"The right to self-preservation is basic to our nation, to our culture, indeed to civilization itself," says Snyder. "To not know if this right exists is an absolute disqualifier."

FEMA Exercises Include Foreign Troops Practicing on U.S. Soil

This week the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been conducting its annual National Level Exercise program to prepare governmental agencies to respond to emergencies. But this year’s exercise has ominous underpinnings: it is the first to focus exclusively on terrorism protection and planning, and, for the first time, foreign troops are being trained to respond to emergencies in the U.S.

That’s right, troops from Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom are being trained in Washington, D.C., Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas to help impose martial law in the event of a terrorist incident in the U.S.

This from FEMA’s own website: “This scenario enables participating senior officials to focus on issues related to preventing terrorist events domestically and protecting U.S. critical infrastructure… Exercises such as NLE 09 are an important component of national preparedness, helping to build an integrated federal, state, tribal, local and private sector capability to prevent terrorist attacks, and rapidly and effectively respond to, and recover from, any terrorist attack or major disaster that occurs. The full-scale exercise offers agencies and jurisdictions a way to test their plans and skills in a real-time, realistic environment and to gain the in-depth knowledge that only experience can provide. Participants will exercise prevention and information sharing functions that are critical to preventing terrorist attacks.”

Of course, we live in a world where an attack is possible any time from Islamo-fascist terrorists who are desperate to hit America whenever and wherever they can. And Timothy McVeigh’s bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma in 1995 is an example of what domestic terrorists can do (though evidence uncovered by reporters indicated an Iraqi connection that the government never pursued).

But don’t forget that your government may consider you a terrorist as well. Do you believe in the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution? Terrorist. Do you believe in a limited government? Terrorist. Do you believe in state’s rights? Terrorist. Do you oppose abortion? Terrorist. Do you oppose illegal immigration? Terrorist. Former member of the military? Terrorist.

These descriptions are right out of a special assessment issued by the Department of Homeland Security entitled: Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.

And then there is this: Two bills pending in Congress sponsored by Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL). That’s the same Alcee Hastings who, while a judge, was impeached by a Democrat-controlled Congress 18 years ago by a vote of 413-3 for conspiring to accept bribes. The good citizens of Florida’s House District 23 then elected him to represent them the next year to a seat he still holds.

The two bills are HR 645 and HR 2647. What do they do?

HR 645 requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers on military installations. These are designed, according to the bill’s language, to provide temporary housing and humanitarian assistance in case of an emergency or national disaster. And one clause of the bill reads: “to meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security.”

And Hastings’ other bill, HR 2647, gives the Attorney General the power to determine who or what is a hate group.

We touched on the possibility of foreign or United Nations troops enforcing laws on American soil in conjunction with U.S. census takers recording Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates, Census Workers Marking GPS Coordinates of U.S. Homes, June 19.

Now to connect the dots: Foreign troops brought to the U.S. use GPS coordinates to locate and arrest domestic terrorists (as defined by Attorney General) and taken to military installations where they are held in detention in concentration camp-style facilities.

As the march toward fascism continues and civil unrest grows, who knows what the government boys and girls might try next?

Researchers describe how diet may protect prostate

Researchers describe how diet may protect prostate Reasonable dieting has a range of health benefits, including weight loss, but scientists believe men who limit their carbohydrate intake may also experience a slower growth of prostate tumors.

A team from the Duke Prostate Center conducted animal studies which found that insulin and an insulin-like growth factor contribute to the growth and proliferation of prostate cancer, and that a low-carb diet decreases insulin levels, producing an opposite effect.

Dr. Stephen Freedland, a urologist at the center and lead investigator on the study, says the results are "very exciting," offering doctors a potential new tool to fight prostate cancer growth and extend patient’s life expectancy.

There are plans currently underway to recruit humans for a clinical trial.

The work of the Duke team is only the latest contribution to the growing body of evidence which links dietary factors to prostate cancer outcomes.

For example, doctors have also recommended a vegetable-rich diet and pomegranate juice which studies have shown may lower the risk of prostate cancer due to their antioxidant power.

Meanwhile, other research has uncovered the beneficial effects of omega-3 fatty acids, while the association between lower cholesterol levels and prostate cancer inhibition suggests some may also benefit from cholesterol-fighting natural remedies such as niacin supplements, fish oil and red yeast rice extract.

Healthcare battle continues

Healthcare battle continues The fight over healthcare reform has intensified as one organization is planning a webcast warning of government takeover of the health system, while a newly published report has found lawmakers who oppose the reform have received the highest industry donations.

The FRC Action, the legislative lobbying arm of Family Research Council, is hosting a special webcast on Tuesday morning to mobilize opposition to what it sees as the government’s effort to take over the healthcare system.

The panel, which will include congressional leaders as well as FRC Action President Tony Perkins, will analyze the moral, ethical and financial aspects of the proposed reform.

"The takeover will suffocate small business owners with incalculable new taxes [and] it would mandate taxpayer-funded abortion, abortifacient drugs and limit end-of-life care," Perkins complained.

"From the inevitability of rationed care to diminishing human dignity, the president’s plan amounts to a prescription for a health care disaster," he added.

Meanwhile, Public Campaign Action Fund (PCAF), a nonprofit organization which advocates campaign finance reform and holding elected officials accountable, has published results of its analysis of campaign contributions to members of key congressional committees handling health reform legislation.

It found that members of three committees who voted against reform have received significantly more in campaign contributions from the health and insurance industries than those who voted for reform.

"The blocs of lawmakers on both the House Energy and Commerce and Senate Finance Committees who are slowing the pace and scope of reform are also huge recipients of health and insurance money," says David Donnelly, national campaigns director of PCAF.

June home sales report suggest sector may be rebounding

June home sales report suggest sector may be rebounding During the last several months investors with cash on hand could find great deals on houses as inventories reached historical highs, but a new government report suggests this window of opportunity may soon be closing.

The report released on Monday by the Commerce Department showed an 11 percent spike in new single-family home sales last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 384,000.

That was higher than what most forecasters anticipated, predicting the figure to be around 350,000.

"The improvement in sales is another heartening sign that housing is stabilizing," said Celia Chen from Moody’s Economy.com, quoted by Agence France Presse.

And although some other analysts have warned against premature celebration, many are in agreement that the times when buyers were able to obtain extra perks such as high-end appliances or swimming pools may soon be over.

"People are going to find builders are not going to be quick to make concessions," said Bernard Markstein, a senior vice president and economist with the National Association of Home Builders, quoted by CNNMoney.com.

"The time for getting deals is going away," he added.

Analysts’ focus is now shifting towards next month’s new construction figures which will confirm whether or not the housing market is in fact rebounding and contributing to bring the economy out of the recession.

Summertime doldrums return as old adage holds true

It seems you can’t fight the calendar after all.

In June, as you’ll fondly remember, gold and gold stocks were in full-blown rally mode. At the time, I was telling you how this summer was shaping up to be the exception to the rule of seasonality for gold and other investments.

That rule—capsulized by the adage, “Sell in May, and go away”—holds that buying demand for investments withers away during the summer months, as vacations and other pursuits distract attention from the markets. For gold the effect is even more pronounced, because physical demand from Asia also dries up during this time frame.

But, as gold and other commodities were rallying in April and May… as even the much-beleaguered U.S. stock market was marching steadily higher… it seemed that we might be in store for an exception to the rule. In short, the summertime doldrums were on the verge of being replaced by a very hot summer market.

That might still happen. But there have been some big shifts in market direction and sentiment since our last issue. As far as the commodity play goes, not only has the bloom come off the rose, but the entire plant has begun withering under the summer heat.

The Rally Falters…

The rally in commodities was based on the idea that the worst was over for the global economy and a rebound was either imminent or already under way.

This idea was helped along by a Chinese buying spree in commodities, particularly copper. While most recognized this for astute restocking at bargain-basement prices, it also helped build faith in a China-led global economic recovery.

The Middle Kingdom, after all, led the world in the relative size of their economic rescue plan and the speed in which they enacted it. Moreover, their spending was directed toward infrastructure projects that actually stimulated the economy—an idea that would seem obvious anywhere but Washington. Therefore, one would expect that China would lead the world out of the recession, and in fact economic data out of China, to whatever degree it was reliable, began to point toward recovery.

So, there was some basis for the argument that the tide had turned for the global economy. And there was enough basis to lead speculators to pile into commodities, driving prices to heights that discounted a far stronger economic rebound than could possibly be provided.

Money was finally being made again. And considering the depth of the bottoms from which stocks and commodities were bouncing, the profits were quite extraordinary.

Coming from a trying period when profits of any kind were scarce, investors began to take profits by early June. The momentum was dying, and all that was needed by mid-June was some kind of spark to send the crowds rushing for the exits.

On June 22, a World Bank report projecting a deeper global economic downturn through the end of the year provided that spark. Commodities plunged, extending a slide that had begun at the beginning of the month for the metals, and about mid-month for oil. This sell-off further bolstered the argument that the party had ended for commodity bulls.

Rebound…Or Double-Dip Recession?

The late-spring rally in metals faltered because there just wasn’t enough evidence supporting the argument for a significant and imminent economic rebound in the U.S. and the rest of the developed world.

Yes, China was looking better. But would it be enough to pull the entire world higher? Not likely.

At this point, investors are still torn between the prospects of an extended downturn (perhaps even a double-dip recession that would test previous lows), or a recovery beginning in the third or fourth quarter of this year.

The factors that would contribute to a continuance of the recession are painfully obvious, and it wouldn’t take much for them to destroy any hope of a rebound.

From an economic viewpoint, the U.S. remains in a precarious position. Housing must recover before any significant or sustained recovery will be possible, and the real estate market remains mired on the downward slope of the cycle. Prices have only begun to fall to levels that reflect reality, and massive inventories remain to be drawn down.

In addition, the credit markets, while improving upon the disastrous state of affairs last fall, are still dancing along the edge of a precipice.

Mortgage rates must remain low if there is any hope of a housing market recovery, which places the Fed smack dab into a vicious cycle. To keep rates low, the Fed will be forced to continually accelerate its purchases of Treasury and mortgage paper…thereby monetizing the debt, fueling inflation and pressuring interest rates higher.

The investment markets recognize the trick box Bernanke and Co. are locked into, and will certainly take full advantage of the Fed’s supporting bid.

From the viewpoint of the markets, the rally in stocks, and commodities, was obviously far ahead of any economic justification. In stocks, every standard of value, from P/E ratios to book values, show that the market has made the transformation from undervalued to quite expensive.

While the U.S. stock market has come up with more than its share of surprises over the past few months, the technical and fundamental underpinnings look exceptionally weak at this point.

Add it all up and you might consider the path to recovery as being uphill…and passing through a minefield. After all, while the pace of the U.S. economic decline is slowing, it is still in decline. Any negative development at all—from new interruptions in credit flows, to a crisis in commercial real estate, to a major banking default or any other “dropped shoe”—could collapse fragile consumer sentiment and send the economy back in the tank.

Conversely, we have to recognize that there are valid arguments for a rebound in the second half. Bulls on the economy argue that companies wasted no time cutting to the bone in this downturn. Employment and inventories are at barest minimums, and any increases in production will lead to dramatically improved inventory builds, employment and investment.

The auto industry is a prime example. Analysts estimate that auto production has fallen so low in the U.S., that it could increase by up to 75 percent without adding anything to inventories.

Because of this anticipated effect, some bullish economists are forecasting that July will be the first month this year to show actual growth in industrial production.

And, of course, companies also used the global economic collapse as an excuse to take massive write-downs and losses, which led to even worse earnings (and losses) over the last two quarters. Thus, any earnings at all in the quarters ahead will show dramatic improvement. While these earnings improvements will be somewhat misleading, they will still add fuel to a potential market rally and resulting positive sentiment.

Any positive sentiment will add to another factor many analysts are now banking on: pent-up consumer demand. The idea here is that consumers have put off many purchases that are temporarily discretionary but ultimately necessary. It’s the theory of a “threadbare economic recovery”—businessmen, for example, can put off buying a new suit for some time. But eventually, when they wear a suit down to bare threads, they simply have to go out and get a new one.

Those arguing for economic growth this year are banking on this effect helping to some degree.

But the most important factor may be the long-awaited arrival of stimulus spending. Granted, the stimulus package foisted upon us by Congress and the Obama administration was misdirected and hugely inefficient. But it was also stupendously large—so large that its sheer size ensures that the flood of spending will assuredly juice up the U.S. economy to some extent.

On balance, looking at both sides of the argument, it would seem that the prospects for an economic rebound in the near term remain dim, and that the summer slowdown in the markets—including the metals—will remain in force.

Stepping down, Sarah Palin takes aim at media, Hollywood

Stepping down, Sarah Palin takes aim at media, Hollywood Alaska governor Sarah Palin officially resigned on Sunday, offering few clues as to her political future but scolding media for "making things up" and the liberal elites for attempts to restrict access to guns.

Echoing suggestions she made on July 3, when she announced her surprise resignation a year and a half before the end of her first term, Palin repeated that the intense media scrutiny of her family contributed to her decision.

"Our new governor has a very nice family, too, so leave his kids alone," she stressed, referring to Sean Parnell, a Republican and Palin ally.

In her speech, the outgoing governor also went after Hollywood "starlets" who oppose gun rights, warning against "anti-hunting, anti-second amendment circuses from Hollywood."

Her political future and ambitions remain shrouded in mystery, but a spokesperson has confirmed Palin’s political action committee, SarahPAC, has raised more than $1 million to date.

And her parting words leave no doubt she is not leaving the spotlight.

"With this decision, now I will be able to fight even harder for you, for what is right and for the truth," she vowed, adding, "I have never felt you need a title to do that."

Top Democrat calls for bipartisan healthcare bill

Top Democrat calls for bipartisan healthcare bill As the battle over healthcare reform heats up, two influential congressmen appeared on a Sunday talk show to call for cooperation and compromise.

Despite assurances from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that Democrats in her chamber have enough votes to pass the bill, Senator Kent Conrad, a North Dakota Democrat and chairman of the budget committee, said Republican support will be needed.

What is more, he suggested a bipartisan legislation would also be desirable, saying on ABC’s This Week, "We’re probably going to get a better product if we go through the tough business of debate, consideration and analysis of what we’re proposing."

Appearing on the show alongside Conrad was South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint, who, although he clashed with his Democratic counterpart on many issues, sounded a similar note when he said that "We could have a plan in a few weeks … if the goal is not a government takeover."

In DeMint’s view, removing the proposal of a public insurance option will facilitate a compromise across the aisle and result in a reform that has a broad political support.

President Obama and the Democrats want to introduce the bill before congressional summer recess begins in August.

However, commentators have suggested that even if the Democrats – who have 60 votes in the Senate – manage to push the reform through on their own, such a partisan legislation might spell political trouble for the party as well as President Obama in the years to come.

‘Electronic’ cigarettes deemed unsafe, according to the FDA

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently revealed that devices that were meant to be safe alternatives to smoking may be harmful to a user’s health.

Electronic cigarettes, also known as ‘e-cigarettes,’mimic actual cigarettes and pump out nicotine, flavors and other chemicals to remind ex-smokers of the taste and feel they miss. However, the cartridges also emit harmful chemicals like diethylene glycol that is commonly found in antifreeze, according to the FDA.

The FDA has not approved these e-cigarettes, yet they are marketed to young people and can be found online and in shopping malls where youth spend time.

In response, Dr. Margaret Hamburg, FDA comissioner, said, "the FDA is concerned about the safety of these products and how they are marketed to the public."

Another study by Wake Forest School of Medicine revealed young people should not be exposed to even more nicotine or cigarette product.

Secondhand smoke exposure has become a problem, with 83 percent of survey participants admitting that they had been around it at least seven days prior.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19279185-ADNFCR

Three Dragons Battle a Mouse Over Value of Money

In the scorching Nevada heat a battle is taking place that pits, essentially, three enormous dragons against a mouse. It’s the case of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) vs. Robert Kahre, and its outcome could have an enormous impact on our nation’s money, particularly if the economy collapses and hyperinflation sets in as we expect.

But Kahre isn’t just facing the IRS. His antagonists include the Federal Reserve and U.S. Justice Department. All three entities have ever-full money sacks, giving Kahre long odds of success indeed.

We mentioned Kahre July 7 in an article about the Justice Department’s attempts to gather information on people posting comments on the Las Vegas Review-Journal website about the case. So this case is about both freedom of speech in the U.S. as well as monetary policy. But since we dealt with the freedom of speech issue last time, we’ll deal with the monetary policy now.

Kahre, a contractor, is one of four people charged in a 57-count indictment of fraud and conspiracy. What he did was expose the Fed for the fraud it is. So now he’s fighting the three behemoths, the IRS, the Fed and U.S. Justice Department.

According to the government’s case, Kahre and others concocted a fraudulent cash payroll “scheme” and then peddled it to other Las Vegan contractors. What was Kahre’s “scheme?”

He paid his subcontractors in gold and silver coins. Then, using the face value stamped on the coins, determined their payments didn’t pass the threshold for reporting to the IRS.

Appearing on a screen in the courtroom during the government’s opening trial arguments were the words, “This is a case about money, greed and fraud.” Truer words couldn’t have been spoken, and the fact that a government lawyer was uttering them is truly ironic.

For the money, greed and fraud angle falls on the heads of the three dragons. The money Kahre used to pay his subcontractors is stamped by the money creators as legal tender, with dollar denominations stating their value. The fact that their face value represents amounts far less than their actual value is evidence of the fraud the government has perpetuated on its people.

Just as junk silver coins printed prior to 1965 are worth more for their metal content than their printed face values, the gold and silver in U.S. Mint legal tender coins are too. And the reason this has occurred lies with the non-constitutional entity called the Fed, which prints fiat money backed by nothing. This has devalued our nation’s currency.

In Kahre’s defense, lawyers argue that the workers agreed to be independent contractors so he did not have to withhold taxes for them. His six businesses are in the trades of painting, drywall, tiling, plumbing, heating, cooling and electrical work. It is not at all unusual to pay this type of employee as a subcontractor without withholding taxes and sending the IRS and subcontractor IRS Form 1099 at tax time if the payment threshold is met.

By claiming the payments on the face value of the coins, that threshold was never met. So the IRS got irritated because no taxes were owed.

In essence, Kahre manipulated the government’s own laws to his and his contractors’ advantage and the big government boys and girls at Justice and IRS, and the thugs at the Fed didn’t appreciate Kahre’s imagination.

So they came down on him and his friends hard. And to put another kicker on it, it’s Kahre’s second trial on essentially the same charges. The first, last fall, ended without a conviction, so Justice lawyers dropped a few defendants, added one, and reworked their charges. Not a true case of double jeopardy, as he wasn’t acquitted the first time. But the big government boys and girls are so unhappy with him they’re taking a second shot.

When hyperinflation hits, the economy collapses and gold and silver coins are used for payments and trade, how will we be taxed? The face value of the coin? The coin’s value in dollars? Will there even be a government left to tax us? These are questions we’ll be dealing with in a few years.

And one other thing: a curious aspect of this trial is the lack of interest shown it by the media. Nothing reported in the mainstream media, and not much even from local media—just the original story and another that ran July 5 without actually covering details of the trial.

Perhaps the media is afraid big government boys and girls will target them once they’re finished feeding on the little mouse appetizer.

Concealed weapons amendment disapproved

Gun owners will not be allowed to cross state lines with concealed weapons as the Senate voted against this proposed amendment. The proposal was rejected by a thin margin after a 58-39 vote, with 20 Democrats registering their disapproval of the measure.

In order to pass this amendment, 60 senators would have had to vote in favor of the movement. According to USA Today, the vote was supported by mainly Republican senators with strong approval from Democrats from rural states where senators are more inclined to be pro-gun.

The amendment was strongly supported by the National Rife Association, Gun Owners of America and Senator John Thune of South Dakota.

In addition, this bill would have allowed those with a concealed weapons permit in one state to transfer the document to other states that, according to The Hill, Thume said was a "common sense" plan.

On the other hand, those against the bill, namely New York Senator Charles Schumer, were quite vocal in their dislike. He is quoted as saying that "if this had passed, it would have created havoc for law enforcement and endangered the safety of millions of New Yorkers."ADNFCR-1961-ID-19279154-ADNFCR

Obama continues to push healthcare reform

President Obama is adamant that Congress embrace his healthcare reform proposals and continues to work to push the issue forward.

Obama communicated that he understood many in Congress were opposed to his reform plans, telling press and officials "I know that there are those in this town who openly declare their intention to block reform." He maintains that he will keep his attention focused on helping the American people.

"We can choose action over inaction," he explained, urging the wary to approve his point of view. "We can build on the extraordinary common ground that’s been forged, and we can do the hard work needed to finally pass the health insurance reform that the American people deserve."

It seems that Obama also wants to remind Congress and the public that his plans are intended to unite, not divide those of opposing views, working for the greater good. "I look forward to working with Congress in the days ahead to getting the job done," he said.

Police step on Harvard Professor’s civil liberties

Harvard professor Henry Gates was allegedly the victim of police harassment as he tried to force his way back into his own home in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

A neighbor heard a disturbance at his residence and subsequently called the police, who then appeared at the scene and began to question Gates.

The officer, Sergeant James Crowley, reportedly questioned the professor in a way he felt was inappropriate and potentially offensive in Gates’ opinion. He implied that the police were called because Gates is African American and were racially profiling him.

Gates was told that the police were called to investigate a potential burglary and media sources report that he replied "Why, because I’m a black man in America?"

He was then taken into custody for further exclamations – his account now differs from that of the police – but today’s charges against him were dropped.

Due to the apparent infringement of Gates’ civil liberties and potential racial profiling, the renowned professor is rumored to be considering making a documentary on racial profiling, using the incident as inspiration. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19277757-ADNFCR

Study: Honey used for antimicrobial purposes

More often, people stir honey into tea, use it to make desserts such as baklava and sometimes even spread it on toast. Now a new paper reveals that one kind of honey may be used as a novel first aid treatment.

The paper appears in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiological Infectious Diseases and examines the Leptospermum honey, found commonly in New Zealand and Australia.

Because honey has a low pH level, researchers found, it does not irritate the wound site. In addition, the treated, medical-grade honey also promotes the growth of new tissue and helps eliminate pain and scarring.

CEO and chairman of Derma Sciences, Edward Quilty produces MEDHONEY which is derived from the Leptospermum honey and he feels that the recent article "does a great job" of highlighting its medical benefits.

MEDHONEY has subsequently been used to treat surgical wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, burns and other skin complications.

Researchers further discovered that this honey also has antimicrobial properties, in that it acts as an antibiotic against bacteria like methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant strains (VRS).

Honey is also reported to have other benefits such as helping to smooth skin when mixed up in all-natural creams and lotions. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19277732-ADNFCR

What is C-Reactive Protein?

C-Reactive protein (CRP) is the concentration of a protein that is produced by the liver during episodes of acute inflammation. It is a part of the body’s basic emergency response system.

As far as my study goes, everybody should at least have a CRP test annually.

CRP is a health marker that indicates early signs of the risk of heart disease and stroke. Without this test most doctors rely on lipid profile (cholesterol and triglycerides) as their indicators or predictors of heart disease and stroke. Evidence is substantial that high CRP levels double the risk of heart disease and stroke. Millions of people have normal cholesterol levels but high levels of inflammation in their cardiovascular system as identified by the CRP blood test.

Many studies in the last few years have shown that inflammation is always present in the heart blood vessels of heart attack patients with normal cholesterol levels.

An inflammatory response is a normal response to disease or injury and particularly to infection. The trouble with inflammation is that it is sometimes an over response doing more harm than good.

It is now clear that atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) is an inflammatory disease rather than a cholesterol buildup problem.

Infection and inflammation are closely related. Researchers have suspected for some time that artery disease may have an infectious component.

Chronic low level or subclinical infection or inflammation is a tipoff that something is out of stasis, or balance. Those who have had bacterial or viral infections are more susceptible later to inflammation leading to heart attacks or stroke.

A CRP blood test can accurately predict future heart problems even in otherwise low risk patients, such as those who don’t smoke, who have normal cholesterol and blood pressure, and no family history of heart disease or diabetes.

Above normal CRP has multiple, independent affects that cause heart disease not seen and not suspected. The very important thing is that a CRP blood test may predict many months or years in advance of an incident.

Keep in mind that many heart disease risk factors such as obesity, lack of exercise, smoking and high blood pressure are all known to increase inflammation and CRP levels. In fact, fat cells by themselves and independent of the rest of the body produce inflammation and higher CRP levels leading to heart disease. Fat is an organ in and by itself that can, over time, destroy the rest of the body with subclinical infection and eventually heart disease.

Many of us are dying as walking time bombs, totally unsuspecting.

What to do? Get a CRP test at least once a year. Be sure to get the high-sensitivity CRP test because it can detect the extremely low level of inflammation (infection) linked to early heart disease.

Get inflammation down to get CRP down.

It’s what you eat! The American people live on commercial non-foods. Get off all trans fats such as French fries, cookies and crackers.

With high CRP goes high ratios of omega-6s to omega-3s. To restore balance to approximately 1:3, take high dose fish oil (3 teaspoons daily), and eat fish three to five times weekly. Be careful of other blood thinners because fish oil is a natural blood thinner—one of the best. Too much omega-3 fatty acids could cause bleeding in some people. Not much of a risk though, in my opinion. But be sure to see your doctor—especially if you are on any prescription drugs.

Aloe vera benefits teeth and gums too

Some use aloe vera to ease the pain on sunburn while others apply it to small abrasions or minor burns for skin pain and irritation relief.

Now, new research shows that aloe vera can also help keep teeth and gums healthy.

According to the most recent Academy of General Dentistry’s Journal, General Dentistry, aloe vera in a tooth gel form may help prevent cavities and promote gum health by helping eradicate disease-causing bacteria from the mouth.

Certain anthraquinones in the plant prevent inflammation, therefore helping to keep gums healthy. Aloe vera is less likely to irritate those with sensitive teeth and gums.

Dr. Dilip George, who co-authored this study, suggested that users research aloe-containing products to find out which ones are produced to best maintain the plant’s nutrients. Overheating the aloe, for example "destroys or reduces the effects of certain essential compounds, such as enzymes and polysaccharides," he says.

The American Dental Association recommends that each person brush his or her teeth twice a day to maintain good oral health. Individuals should also floss regularly.ADNFCR-1961-ID-19275704-ADNFCR

No new F-22 jets next year

In a 58-40 vote the Senate approved an amendment that proposed to stop production on the newest F-22 fighter jet models.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates deemed the planes to be unnecessary and wanted the next line to be stricken from the 2010 defense budget.

President Obama supported Gate’s stance and declared the spending would have been "an inexcusable waste of money" for it meant less funding for troops.

Those who opposed this decision included Georgia republican Senator Saxby Chambliss and Connecticut’s Democratic Senator, Christopher Dodd, as well as labor unions such as the International Association of Machinists.

Ending production on the F-22, such opponents argued, would hurt, not help the economy and lead to job losses across the country. According to Bloomberg, 70,000 jobs are indirectly supported across 40 states by the F-22’s manufacturing.

There are currently 183 fighter jets in use, with plans to manufacture only 4 more. Instead, the Armed Forces aim to develop approximately 500 of the F-35 planes, CNN reports.

Ultimately, ending production on these fighter jets will cut the defense budget by $1.75 billion.
