Calcium, Irritability and Convulsions

Convulsions in infants and small children occur when plasma calcium (ionic form, calcium lactate) is decreased by 50 percent. Evidence is irritability and twitching, leading to convulsions and a trip to the emergency room where a sedating drug is given—instead of ionizable calcium which is required to correct the condition.

Growing children need calcium lactate constantly to offset the excess phosphoric acid in cereal foods in order to promote bone building and muscle function. Low calcium bicarbonate in children results in excessive nervous energy—the type of child that cannot sit still. Acute deficiency of calcium bicarbonate results in fever and convulsions.

Swine Flu A Dud—Unless You’re Big Pharma

The great swine flu hoax is finally fizzling out.

Aside from an occasional public service announcement there is almost no mention of swine flu—or H1N1—in the media today. No more Kathleen Sebelius telling you to cough into your bent arm, no more government hucksters urging you get vaccinated.

And curiously, in the mainstream media there is no reflection on the “pandemic” as we approach the one-year anniversary of the first reports coming out of Mexico. Or maybe it’s not so curious after all.

It was last April that the outbreak began in Veracruz, Mexico. The mainstream media went nuts, providing daily tallies of infections and deaths from around the globe as it followed the spread of the so-called deadly disease. There were quarantines in Hong Kong and people wearing surgical masks in South America, China and Japan.

It wasn’t long before the World Health Organization (WHO) was proclaiming it a crisis in the making and predicting deaths in the millions worldwide—2 million in the United States alone.

Billions of tax dollars were sent to the largest drug manufacturers—GlaxoSmithKline, Roche and Novartis—to develop a vaccine. Governments quickly passed legislation absolving Big Pharma from any liability if people were harmed in the taking of the vaccines. And then Big Pharma foisted a harmful vaccine on the public.

Officials from all levels of government went to the media first encouraging, the suggesting and, finally, threatening to order people to take the vaccines. Early on people lined up hoping to get vaccinated but became frustrated when manufacturers failed to meet their quotas. Later, people stayed away in droves. In the end, more people stayed away than were vaccinated.

If you invested in GlaxoSmithKline, Roche or Novartis a year ago, pat yourself on the back. Either you were lucky, prescient or in on the scheme. You and your companies have made a killing. The stock prices of these companies were in a precipitous slide at the end of March 2009, and have each almost—or even more than—doubled since, thanks to the multi-billion dollar injections they received from government.

If you were one of the gullible public that subjected yourself to the harmful vaccine and came away unscathed, thank your lucky stars. Some weren’t so lucky and contracted Guillain-Barré syndrome and other afflictions. Many who had the vaccine saw no deleterious effects, but contracted swine flu anyway. However, the consequences of the harmful materials contained in the vaccines may not be known for years.

Here’s what we do know. The total number of swine flu-related deaths worldwide is around 14,000. And the number is only this high because WHO and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed the way the deaths were classified. To put that in perspective, about 36,000 die in the U.S. each year from seasonal flu. And about 100,000 a year die in this country from the effects of Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved drugs.

And here’s something else to consider—and something the U.S. mainstream media isn’t telling you. In January 2010, Professor Ulrich Keil, the director of the WHO’s Collaborating Centre for Epidemiology told the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) “governments wasted huge amounts of money by investing in pandemic scenarios whose evidence base is weak.”

( Column Continues Below )


PACE’s Health Committee Chairman, Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a former German lawmaker, medical doctor and epidemiologist, called the swine flu pandemic one of the greatest medical scandals of the century. Speaking on the Alex Jones radio program, Wodarg called it a hoax manufactured by the pharmaceutical companies in league with the WHO to make vast profits while endangering the public health. (

And Wodarg told the U.K Daily Mail, “The governments have sealed contracts with vaccine producers where they secure orders in advance and take upon themselves almost all the responsibility. In this way the producers of vaccines are sure of enormous gains without having any financial risks. So they just wait until WHO says ‘pandemic’ and activate the contracts.”

Wodarg also told the Daily Mail that to further push their interests, leading drug companies placed “their people” in the “cogs” of the WHO and other influential organizations.

To its credit, Time magazine ran an article in January 2010, that touched on Wodarg’s comments. So its couple of thousand subscribers—and a few thousand more patients in doctor and dentist offices—had access to the truth. But the magazine also included the typical government propaganda that people should still be vaccinated and a third wave of the “pandemic” could be in the offing.

The Time article also contains this curious tidbit:

“The current glut of vaccines in rich nations may at least prove useful to the 95 countries in the developing world that have no access to vaccines, 86 of which have written to the WHO requesting help obtaining supplies. The WHO already has 200 million doses for such countries, and the first doses of that stockpile arrived in Mongolia and Azerbaijan this month. These doses will be supplemented by bilateral deals: France, for example, plans to sell 2 million vaccine doses at cost to Egypt and 300,000 to Qatar, according to a report in the Parisien newspaper.

It appears that even in developing nations, however, the need for vaccines is not overwhelming. Despite fears that H1N1 would hit developing nations hardest, the pandemic is unfolding in those countries “in a similar pattern” to that in the developed world, says (WHO’s special advisor on pandemic influenza Dr. Keiji) Fukuda—which is to say with relatively few deaths. In fact, some developing countries, particularly in West Africa, are reporting lower rates of infection than in the developed world.

Which begs the question: why would developing countries waste what little money they have on a useless vaccine to treat a disease that’s not infecting or killing people as predicted?

The scam has been a boon to at least one British official and one CDC official. The Daily Mail reports that Sir Roy Anderson, a scientist that advises the British government on swine flu, holds a well-paying job on the board of GlaxoSmithKline.

Dr. Julie Gerberding, the former head of the CDC, recently left that organization for a lucrative job as president of Merck’s global vaccine operations. With that in mind, watch for the announcement of the next pandemic and, when it comes, consider jumping on Merck stock. That company obviously doesn’t want to get caught out of the loop again.

Just don’t take the vaccine next time. As we’ve told you before, vaccines are useless, inefficient and dangerous.

And if you don’t believe me, maybe the words of Dr. Shiv Chopra will convince you. Chopra has worked for European drug companies and served for 20 years as an advisor to the Canadian equivalent of the FDA. He recently told Dr. Joseph Mercola (

“No flu vaccine has ever worked. Swine flu, we don’t even know there is such a thing. It’s a misnomer. Avian [bird] flu, these are all made-up things. The whole thing is a hoax. It has been for the last 10 years. First they started with the avian flu, and then swine flu.”

“Who is the Directorate General of the WHO to say that ‘I’m raising it to pandemic level No. 6?’ Based on what? At the same time, from the same sources, we’re receiving information that we think sooner or later, the virus is going to mutate. We don’t know when but it is going to. How did they know that? How do they come to that conclusion?

“Then we hear the new virus H1N1 has components: the bird flu, H5N1, or the other way around. When you use these kinds of numbers and technical words, it frightens people because they don’t understand what H or N stands for. They take people’s words for it and the media picks it up and then starts to say, ‘This is very different. This is entirely different. This has components of the 1918 flu and the bird flu. It also has the swine flu.’

“And you go around in Mexico and you get H1N1 in the swine right now. So you make six, eight or 10 different drugs, different vaccines as many as the companies, and then you say, ‘Some will be live and they’ll be given in the nose, some will be killed, some will have adjuvants like squalene oils.’

“…And some people are being given nasal vaccine, so that means a live virus. If you’re putting a drop in the nose like you put the drop of polio in the mouth, then those are the portals of entry that obviously mean this is a live virus. If it’s a live virus, then you actually may be creating a pandemic with whatever you manufactured in the laboratory. If it’s a live virus then that’s what could happen.”

How is that for government incompetence? They predicted a pandemic, they hyped it in order to scare people into taking an untested vaccine, they enlisted government hacks, celebrities and a willing media to spread their propaganda, they deliberately infected people with a live virus and still they couldn’t make their pandemic meet their goals.

The Advantage of Being Armed

The United States Supreme Court is weighing the constitutionality of a 1982 ban on handgun ownership in the city of Chicago. It is one of the most stringent bans in the country.

The suit was filed by Otis McDonald, a resident of a Chicago neighborhood who says he is awakened at all hours of the night by all kinds of noises from outside his home. He wants to be able to protect himself from the thugs who roam the streets of his community.

Obviously the gun ban hasn’t worked. In 2008 there were 412 firearm homicides in Chicago, and in 402 of them a handgun was used.

Buoyed by a victory in District of Columbia v. Heller a year and a half ago, gun rights advocates are confident the Supreme Court will rightly rule the Chicago gun ban unconstitutional.

The Founding Fathers understood the necessity of an armed populace if a society was to remain free. Writing in Federalist No. 46, James Madison said, “The ultimate authority …resides in the people alone.…The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation …forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition.”

And that ambition can be from a tyrannical government or a common street thug.

Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, in his Commentaries on the Constitution, wrote, “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”

There is a growing sense of fear from many in our society over the usurpation and the arbitrary power of rulers. But more importantly, if a person is to remain secure in his home he has to have the ability to defend himself.

I believe that is called life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Programmed Cell Death

Our cells, if healthy, are programmed to die a natural death within a certain time. This process is called “apoptosis.”

When our cells grow wild and don’t die on time, we have cancer. Iodine promotes apoptosis or normal cell death.

But the "required daily allowance (RDA) is not enough for iodine dependent tissues of the thyroid, breasts, ovaries, uterus and prostate gland. Daily preventive adult doses range from 6-50 mgs/day for the vast majority of adults. Iodine levels can be measured by checking blood, urine and/or saliva." (From the book, Iodine, Why You Need It and Why You Can’t Live Without It, 3rd edition, page 160 by Dr. David Brownstein.)

Paper Money Will Be Worthless?

Dear Bob,

If, as stated in your summary report of the pending economic crisis (Surviving A Global Financial Crisis and Currency Collapse), paper money will be worthless because it is not backed by gold or silver, how will one be expected to pay their loan payment or utility bills? I have my paychecks automatically deposited and the same with my monthly pension payment. Are those checks supposedly worth anything during the economic collapse and what will the banks do with them? Could I become a victim of the system and lose my home because nothing I have to pay my mortgage with will be considered of any value? I really feel that there isn’t much I can do to prevent a lot of this because every source of income I have may have no more value than paper money. I don’t have a huge stash of gold and silver coins and it’s a little late and way to expensive to consider buying enough to make mortgage payments with. Any advice you can offer would be appreciated.

Ted Smith

Dear Ted Smith,

In the last days of the system, as its collapse is occurring, you will still have to make payments with cash or checks based on the inflating fiat currency. So you will have to exchange your gold and silver for paper. In Weimar Germany people were being paid with wheelbarrow loads of cash then rushing to the store to buy bread before the price rose again. I expect something similar to occur here. The key is to have something on hand for after the system collapses so you can continue to buy what you need.

Best Wishes,

Prosperity Can Return, And The Fix is Simple

Income tax to the Federal Government is not for income to the government—not one penny.

What is it for then? It is for social control. This is a fiat money syndrome. Fiat paper money causes more direct government control over citizens. In filing Federal Income Tax forms people reveal a complete profile of their public as well as their private lives.

The system requires that the people must believe that Federal income taxes are for income flow to the Federal Government. Nonsense, nonsense. No fiat (money) goes to Washington as taxes!

Where does it go? It returns to ether, from whence it came. Where does the Federal Government get its money? Modern government money is electronic. It is not your taxes.

And in reality, Federal Government has no debt. How can the Federal Government have debt with electronic money that is nothing more than computer symbols that can be created to infinity?

Every egghead in the land believes that there is Federal debt. The Federal debt elves have gotten into their heads. They totally misunderstand monetary realism.

Oh yes, the Federal debt hoax has a serious purpose. It throws sand in our eyes to keep the people from waking up to the fact that the Federal Government just creates all the “money.” There might be an “income tax” rebellion if a goodly number of people discovered the Federal debt hoax. Come now, if you could create trillions in electronic money, would you have debt? No, you wouldn’t, and neither does the Federal Government.

The income tax is totally a propaganda system to keep the population from discovering the nature of Federal Government finance. Income tax is not about money going to Washington as taxes.

It is about control and social engineering of transferring production and wealth from the producers to the non-producers, and it comes right out of Karl Marx’s Manifesto.

And dear friends, can you even imagine the parasite load of accountants and lawyers pretending to help the Federal Government collect taxes? They actually believe that they are collecting taxes. They have no concept of reality.

I challenge any living being to disprove what I have written here. What we need is truth.

The hour is past late.

Greed and vested interest have brought America to a state of collapse. Accountants and lawyers are parasites on the income tax fraud.

Since the income tax does not supply income to the government it can be permanently abolished. After all, Federal income tax was nil until 1939.

It’s all very simple except for the giant cover of deceit and fraud in America. Elimination of the Federal income tax would restore confidence and a new day of prosperity and economic relief.

Domestic labor could and would be cheaper and corporations which have moved offshore would move back.

America is not in economic trouble except for the fraud of politicians and vested interests. President Obama would have to know this.

Abolishing the income tax would eliminate the oppression of a whole army of tax collectors and their lackey accountants and lawyers. This would make way for sound and honest healthcare and Social Security.

Abolishing the income tax would not cost the United States government a dime. Federal income tax is the scam of and scourge of history used by tyrants to oppress the people and make them support a perpetual increase in the size of government.

What I have said here does not apply to state and local governments. All of you know that they can’t print money or create money electronically as does the Federal Government.

The American people need to know the truth now about the fraud and deceit of the Federal income tax. It will never be debated in the controlled media or by the politicians. They don’t want you to know.

But only 1 percent of the “taxpayers” could start an income tax rebellion simply by telling the truth to fellow Americans. It is our last chance!

The Unthinkable by Amanda Ripley

[pl_amazon_book_order src=""]

Each of us secretly hopes that, should we find ourselves facing a disaster, we would respond nobly if not heroically. And we certainly hope that we would never just freeze, like a deer caught in the headlights—or worse, panic.

But how we respond to crisis may be hardwired into our brain’s circuitry long before we’re confronted with a disaster situation. And while practice or preparation can help us to respond properly, we may have little actual control over what we do in a disaster.

That’s the conclusion of Amanda Ripley’s The Unthinkable, which has a subtitle: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes—And Why?

Ripley, an award-winning journalist for Time magazine, has covered some the world’s biggest disasters over the course of her career. In this book she retraces some of history’s biggest calamities—from the 1917 explosion of the munitions ship Mont Blanc, to plane crashes, calamitous fires, the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, hostage situations and mass shootings—and studies people’s responses in an effort to find out why some survive the seemingly unsurvivable while others perish in situations where survival should have been assured.

She interviews the survivors to learn how they made it out, the rescuers to learn how the victims were responding, and the heroes to learn what made them different. What she learned could help you understand your response should you ever be confronted with a disaster situation.

Ripley determined that most people did not respond the way they thought they would. Whether they froze, panicked or led, many people were, in retrospect, surprised by their actions.

Her research showed that the human mind goes through three basic steps when confronted with a crisis. The steps are denial, deliberation and decision.

During the denial stage, it’s not unusual for people to continue performing mundane tasks while chaos reins around them. During this stage the brain is processing information, delaying its decision-making process and assessing the risk. But because the event is so unlike anything ever experienced before, the brain has trouble putting the situation into perspective.

From her interviews with 9/11 survivors she learned that even after hearing what had actually happened in the Twin Towers and that there was a need to get out quickly, many workers continued to talk on the telephone, put away items on their desks, gather personal effects and mill about in casual conversation.

Often it took someone shouting or speaking in a rude or demanding voice to spur people into action. Still, many assessed the risk and determined it was better to stay put than to flee.

In the deliberation phase the mind begins to put together possible courses of action. It’s not unusual for people to describe this period as having time almost stand still. They remember in great detail words or images that would not normally be significant.

It’s in this stage that training or practice can step in and influence one’s behavior, affecting the response in the third stage, the decisive moment. Some overcome their fear and take the steps necessary to escape and some help those around them.

Ripley breaks down the decisive moment into panic, paralysis or heroism.

Panic takes many forms, none of them good, and rarely is panic productive. Some see paralysis as a form of panic, but Ripley writes that researchers have concluded that paralysis is an escape mechanism that is instinctive in many animals, and humans.

For instance, a prey animal being attacked by a predator may go limp, causing the predator to lose interest before inflicting a mortal injury. Humans have used it—though it is often an unconscious action, like when a killer is shooting people at random—to remain inconspicuous and out of harm’s way.

But Ripley writes that that instinctive action often works against people in today’s society. Remaining motionless in a situation where flight is needed to save you is deadly, and has cost many people their lives in plane crashes and other situations where there was ample time to escape and doing nothing was not a rational option.

Finally, there is heroism. A relatively small number of people step into this role and fewer still know why. When asked why they responded to the crisis with heroic actions they generally respond that if they hadn’t responded that way they wouldn’t have been able to live with themselves, Ripley writes.

And they don’t think of their actions as heroic. They think of them as simply doing what needed to be done.

Ripley’s The Unthinkable is a fascinating compilation of event descriptions, interviews and research that both entertains and informs. It can help you to make sense of the actions of those around you should you suddenly find yourself facing the unthinkable.

Sugars and Grains Lead to Weight Gain and Problems With Your Bones

When leptin and insulin are disrupted with a diet of sugar and grain there is a miscommunication in the body about where to store excess fat.

Some fat will be stored in the abdomen and liver, which throws the liver function off-kilter and starts a process of breakdown of muscle and bone—causing weakness and osteoporosis. Now we have a serious problem of insulin resistance and high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer.

When we see the big apple-shaped middle we are looking at insulin resistance and disease.
