Hacker doxxed nearly 30,000 government agents while you were watching the Super Bowl

  On Sunday, a day after threatening to do as much, an anonymous hacker released the names, job titles, email addresses and phone numbers of over 20,000 Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employees and 9,000 from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), just for good measure. The hacker also claims to have hundreds of gigabytes of data from a Department of Justice (DOJ) computer, although this information has yet to be released. Of the leaked information, many of the employees and operatives are working in non-public positions, including approximately 1,000 FBI employees currently holding intelligence analysis roles. A spokesperson for the DOJ told Motherboard that is it, “looking into the unauthorized access of a system operated by one of its components containing employee contact information.” According to Motherboard’s conversations with the hacker, the cybercriminal appears to have gained access by compromising a DOJ email account last week, and then used that account to access a DOJ portal after tricking a representative into providing a token code. The hacker then used the compromised credentials to access an online virtual machine. From there, databases of both the DHS and FBI were accessible on the DOJ intranet. Though the hacker has claimed no affiliation with any group, it’s possible they are involved with ‘Crackas With Attitude’ (CWA). The hackers facilitating this intrusion used the hashtag #FreePalestine in several tweets, the same as CWA had done previously. The group claims the hashtag is an effort to show support for Palestine, which was the motivation behind the...

Secret Societies Stifle Free Speech at Yale

Secret Societies Stifle Free Speech at Yale

avatar
  There was a lot of ruckus in the media when a Yale student, Jerelyn Luther, was recorded screaming at a Yale professor whose wife, Erika Christakis, had sent a now infamous e-mail critical of politically-correct campus organizations. Just two days ago, Ms. Christakis spoke to the New York Times, for the first time recounting how an e-mail meant to foster dialogue turned into national outrage directed at her and her husband. The Times wrote: “Increasingly, college administrators are pushing back against student demands perceived as doctrinaire on matters involving cultural sensitivity, and are asking for a spirit of negotiation rather than ultimatums, as Ms. Christakis urged in her email.” The Times further goes on to report that Ms. Christakis’ friends asked her why she would stick her neck out by commenting on a “hot-button issue” that they see as stemming from a new generation of “inflexible, spoiled brats” who have no tolerance for what other people have to say, thus highlighting how the older generation perceives this anti-speech crisis in academia to be a problem that did not exist before; but the truth is that this inflexibility in the Yale community is not something new, it’s been a cultural aspect of the university for almost two centuries. When Skull & Bones was founded in the 1830s, it immediately cloaked itself in secrecy and silence. Members of the society would sometimes get up and leave a room if someone even asked them a question related to their membership in the extremely wealthy organization that has included in its roster a laundry-list of statesmen and oligarchs. When I first started at Yale, we were taken to countless events and orientations and even humorous performances by some of the campus groups. Campus groups are primarily led by seniors, naturally, and they set the tone for the freshmen, handing down ultimatums on silence. One performance which I still vividly remember involved a group which was led by two Bonesmen; the list of members is published annually by The Rumpus, the college tabloid, for which I was a contributor, so I can confirm who was a member during my time there. In that performance, we were comically shown the horrendous situations that could...

Disturbing Video Shows Cop Lose it on a Handcuffed Child and Hit Him in the Face Multiple Times

Disturbing Video Shows Cop Lose it on a Handcuffed Child and Hit Him in the Face Multiple Times

avatar
    Sandoval County, NM — Last August, Sandoval County deputy Fred Switzer, and another deputy were transporting a teenage child from a court appearance when things went shockingly awry. After the teen was placed in handcuffs and put in the back of the patrol car, Switzer took it upon himself to dole out not, one, but four hard slaps to the teen’s face. While the patrol car’s camera doesn’t have sound, the teen appears to move his head in a motion to spit at the officer. However, the actual spit was not caught on the camera, and even if it had been, it did not warrant the violent response to a handcuffed kid. Switzer, 70, retired from the Albuquerque police department as a lieutenant and has been with the Sandoval County sheriff’s department for eight years. However, he has since been fired. After a fellow officer had witnessed the assault, he filed a report with Switzer’s supervisors. Despite the incident happening six months ago, the video of the attack, and news of the officer’s firing was just released publicly. Young children often find themselves on the receiving end of police state violence while attending public school. In January of last year, Colton Granito, an 8-year-old boy with autism, threw a tantrum during class. Instead of following the boy’s IEP plan, police were called. Colton was handcuffed, transported to jail, and forced to sit in a cell for hours wearing a straight jacket. He was subsequently charged with assault and sentenced to probation. The photo below is of a 10-year-old child handcuffed, laid out on the back of a police cruiser. The boy’s name is Ryan, and he has autism. He misbehaved at school and was also arrested and treated like a criminal.   In September of last year, we reported on body cam footage showing a 9-year-old special needs boy handcuffed as his father pleaded with the officer to release him. That same month, a highly disturbing video of cops manhandling a 13-year-old autistic child as he screamed for help emerged on Facebook. And these cases contain only autistic children. If you truly want a glimpse into the horrid effects of the police state on all children, take...

337 Dead Whales In Chile Is Worst Case Of Mass Deaths So Far

337 Dead Whales In Chile Is Worst Case Of Mass Deaths So Far

avatar
According to Chilean newsagencies. the whales were discovered by scientists on November 17, but only now has the mass death been reported to the authorities (and leaked to the press). In May, in the same part of the Aysen region, biologist Vreni Haussermann discovered 30 dead Sei whales. Baffled scientists suggested at the time that the deaths might have been caused by a virus, and promised to launch an investigation. At first, researchers counted 20 carcasses but warned that the number could increase following their investigations. The final count is shocking. After the first deaths in May, Haussermann teamed up with Dr. Carolina Simon Gutstein and they pooled their resources together. Using aerial and satellite photography, the scientists have counted 305 carcasses and 32 skeletons in the area between the Gulf of Penas and Puerto Natales. This is the single biggest mass whale death known to science. Haussermann said it was “an apocalyptic sight.” Sei whales can weigh up to 50 tons, and they usually live in deep waters far from coastlines. They feed on krill and other small sea creatures by using a filter system, which makes them vulnerable to plastic pollution, and in particular, microbeads. Due to the remote area and rough seas on the Southernmost tip of Chile, not to mention the decomposition of many whales, conducting experiments to determine the exact cause of death isn’t easy. The case was recently reported to Chilean fishing body Servicio Nacional de Pesca, and will be followed up by the Chilean police.

Instead of Helping Flint, Michigan Republicans Just Passed a Bill That Makes Anal Sex Illegal

Instead of Helping Flint, Michigan Republicans Just Passed a Bill That Makes Anal Sex Illegal

avatar
    Up to 8,000 children in Flint, Michigan have potentially been poisoned by their own water supply, and so the Michigan Senate has bravely come together to push through a bill that… bans anal sex. The insanity of this move is made even more outrageous by the fact that 1) Michigan already has a sodomy ban and 2) the ban is completely pointless. The 2003 Supreme Court case of Lawrence vs. Texas declared sodomy bans unconstitutional in all states. So, to reiterate, rather than help citizens that are being poisoned by their own water, Michigan senators chose to spend their time and money upholding an already existing sodomy ban that is impossible to enforce. The ban was able to pass because it was attached to an animal-rights bill mostly aimed at keeping pets out of the hands of animal abusers. The discriminatory measure is squeezed inside the section banning bestiality, an asinine suggestion by Michigan Senators that two consenting adults having the freedom to be intimate is equatable to sexual abuse of an animal. The language of the bill reads “A person who commits the abominable and detestable crime against nature [sodomy] either with mankind or with any animal is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 15 years…” READ MORE  ...

California rapidly turning into medical police state: Mandatory vaccines and genetic discrimination now routinely harming children

California rapidly turning into medical police state: Mandatory vaccines and genetic discrimination now routinely harming children

avatar
California health authorities are increasingly applying police state measures by forcing vaccinations and practicing genetic discrimination – violating constitutional principles and privacy rights. The state’s schools are now being penalized financially for not enforcing mandatory vaccinations; meanwhile children are being expelled for having a genetic predisposition to certain diseases – even when they don’t actually have the diseases in question. Despite much controversy and outrage over California’s vaccination laws, it seems that now health officials are emboldened to push even more authoritarian measures regarding the ‘health’ of the state’s citizens. California has some of the strictest mandatory vaccination laws in the country. Natural News founder Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has written extensively about the bullying and poisoning of the populace at the behest of Big Pharma – in California, particularly. Adams wrote: “These people — the ‘vaccine pushers’ — ignore real science and use wildly dishonest tactics of fear mongering, social shaming and blatant lying about scientific facts to demonize informed parents and attempt to criminalize those who pose intelligent, scientific questions about vaccine safety. “In this way, U.S. doctors, vaccine patent holders (such as Paul Offit), legislators and health regulators are marching America right down the path of medical crimes against humanity — the very same thing we once witnessed carried out by scientists operating under the Nazi regime in Germany.” Get vaccinated – or else! Schools in California are now being threatened with financial penalties for admitting “kindergartners who were overdue for their second dose of the measles vaccine.” From Southern California Public Radio: “The state acted because its data analysis indicates that many schools are erroneously enrolling kindergartners who are overdue for one or more vaccinations and by law should be excluded from class until they’re up to date with their shots. … “If children entered school with only one of two required measles shots and had not received their second shot within three months, as required by state law, the guidelines require auditors to verify the students were excluded from class.” If the students were not excluded from classes, auditors were instructed “disallow the [average daily attendance payment] for any days after three calendar months and ten days from the first dose until the...

Genetic modification of human embryos given the green light in Britain, unleashing a horrifying new era of engineered mutants and human-hybrid monsters

Genetic modification of human embryos given the green light in Britain, unleashing a horrifying new era of engineered mutants and human-hybrid monsters

avatar
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has given the go-ahead for British scientists at the Francis Crick Institute to genetically modify human embryos, and it could happen as soon as March 2016. In fact, they’re already in talks with fertility clinics across the country who may be willing suppliers of leftover embryos. The process would entail deactivation of genes in these leftover IVF clinic embryos, which the scientists say will help them to better understand human development, cell division and faulty genetic codes.(1) According to a spokesman for the HFEA, “Our Licence Committee has approved an application from Dr Kathy Niakan of the Francis Crick Institute to renew her laboratory’s research licence to include gene editing of embryos.”(1) “We would really like to understand the genes that are needed for an embryo to develop into a healthy baby,” Dr. Niakan says.(1) Concerns about editing embryos and making ‘designer babies’ However, many people are vehemently opposed to such experimentation. They raise questions about the horrors that could unfold, not to mention the ethical implications involved. They also point out the fact that this is only the second time ever in the world that similar efforts have been conducted; just last year a Chinese research team attempted similar measures and the reception was hardly warm. It was met with massive public resistance and hesitation.(1) Tampering with embryos and genetically modifying, or “editing” them, has critics rattled, saying that it paves the way for the creation of “designer babies.” Anne Scanlan of the charity, LIFE, is one such person. “The HFEA now has the reputation of being the first regulator in the world to approve this uncertain and dangerous technology,” she says. “It has ignored the warnings of over a hundred scientists worldwide and given permission for a procedure which could have damaging far-reaching implications for human beings.”(1) Admission that incubator to be used will be shared with others; lock system in question Interestingly, one such danger includes the unstable nature of the process, as outlined in the HFEA minutes for what the scientists call Project R0162. It states: The additional research objectives applied for involve the use of an incubator in a room that is shared with other research groups....

MASS EXODUS — MORE AMERICANS THAN EVER BEFORE IN HISTORY ARE RENOUNCING THEIR CITIZENSHIP

avatar
As Donald Trump and his ilk boast building a giant wall to keep immigrants out of the United States, more Americans than ever before are fleeing. According to a new analysis, the number of American citizens turning their backs on the United States has skyrocketed in the last decade, breaking records each year. Since 2008, the number of Americans renouncing their citizenship has increased 18 fold, making 2015 the third record-breaking year in a row. As the US government continues to spread war across the globe and pass legislation granting tax breaks to mega-corporations while squeezing small businesses for every last dime, people are saying ‘enough is enough.’ According to CNNMoney, unlike most other countries, the U.S. taxes its citizens on all income, no matter where it’s earned or where they live. For Americans living abroad, that results in a mountain of paperwork so complex that they are often forced to seek professional help, forking out high fees for accountants and lawyers. This excessive burden of handing over 30-40% of one’s income is unsustainable, and we are now seeing its effect. However, those who are renouncing their citizenship do so because they can afford to flee to another country. As they leave, the tax burden will continue to be passed on to the middle class as the state attempts to squeeze more blood from a turnip. The irony here is that those who are fleeing are not the super rich elite as they could care less about the tax laws — that they wrote. Just last week, the Free Thought Project reported on the newly established tax haven for the super-rich — located inside the US. The words of Andrew Penney, managing director of Rothschild & Co., are extremely clear to the elite, who need not flee; the U.S. is now the world’s biggest tax haven. In a draft for a presentation in San Francisco, Penny wrote that the U.S. “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world.” In the meantime, that same skewed tax code is forcing small business owners out of the country just so they can make ends meat. Small business owners and the upper middle class aren’t the only ones fleeing at record rates...

Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange Reveals Real Intentions Behind The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

  WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been seeking refuge for close to three years inside Ecuador’s Embassy in London where he has political asylum. Facing both investigations in Sweden and the US, he claims that he is doing well despite his circumstances. Assange is wanted in Sweden for questioning on claims of sexual misconduct, however no charges have been formally filed against him. In the US, a secret grand jury is investigating him for his role in publishing a collection of leaked documents regarding the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as well as state department modes of communication known as cables. And despite Assange’s asylum, WikiLeaks continues to disclose documents from leaked drafts of the British nuclear submarine whistleblower William McNeilly, and hidden information about a European union plan that seeks to use military force in order to curb the influx of migrants from Libya. Of the latter, WikiLeaks said, “The documents lay out a military operation against cross-Mediterranean refugee transport networks and infrastructure. It details plans to conduct military operations to destroy boats used for transporting migrants and refugees in Libyan territory, thereby preventing them from reaching Europe. WikiLeaks has also published leaked chapters of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which is a secretive trade agreement among twelve Pacific Rim countries, including the United States. It would allow them to cover 40 percent of the global economy. The agreement was reached just this past October, after seven years of negotiations. But as these matters of economic concern continue to be negotiated amongst the countries, details continue to be hidden from the public while WikiLeaks discloses information, like the “Investment Chapter,” which discusses the US negotiators’ motive to allow corporations to sue governments if their laws disrupt future profits a company has declared. Assange says the plan could “chill” the approval of health and environmental administrations. Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! sat down at the Edcuadorean Embassy in London for an exclusive interview with Assange to discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the US debate of what WikiLeaks has revealed concerning the treaty. “It is very well guarded from the press and the majority of people and even from congressmen. But 600 U.S. companies are part of the process and have been...

A woman’s kind-hearted gesture made a world of a difference to a man who was “being aggressive” on a train. Facebook user Ehab Taha captured the moment when the 70-year-old woman reached out to hold the hand of the man, who was sitting on the floor of the train. The photo of the two has had more than 27,000 shares since Taha posted it to his page. According to Taha, who was riding the Sky Train in Vancouver, B.C., the man was cursing and shouting, while everyone else looked on scared. Taha writes how the man may have been struggling with drug abuse or mental health issues. Instead of turning away, the elderly woman reached out her hand and “tightly gripped his hand until he calmed down,” Taha writes. “I’m a mother and he needed someone to touch,” she told Taha after the incident, and then started to cry. Taha told CTV News that when the man arrived at his stop, he got up and said, “Thanks, grandma,” before getting off. “[The photo] resonated with people,” Taha told the news outlet. “It’s incredible to see that sometimes human touch can do so much more than anything else.” Read More...

The Game on Why He Donated $500K to Flint : ‘Talk Is Cheap’

  The platinum-selling rapper donated half a million dollars to provide water to Flint, Michigan. He discusses why he opened his wallet and pseudo-philanthropic celebs. The Game took some time out from his busy schedule of beefing with Young Thug, posting thirst traps, and releasing a line of emojis for a very good cause: donating $500,000 towards providing water to the people of Flint, Michigan. And yes, we have the receipts. On Tuesday, the Compton rapper posted a picture to his Instagram account of a wire transfer from his charity, the Robin Hood Project, to Avita for half a million bucks. Avita, an artesian alkaline water company, is matching The Game’s $500,000 for a grand total of $1,000,000. It’s the biggest public celebrity donation so far to Flint, which is in the throes of a federal emergency after it came to light that its water supply contained high levels of lead, poisoning its people. Experts estimate that roughly 8,000 to 9,000 children under the age of six may have suffered permanent brain damage after being exposed to the tainted water. And that’s just the kids. “It’s obviously a very big deal and a tragedy in Flint, and I saw people donating small amounts, and I just thought I’d go above and beyond that,” says The Game. “So I donated the funds from the first 11 shows of my European tour. Avita matched it and they’ll be one million bottles of water given out—33,000 bottles of water at a time because of trucking and shipping it in and out. It’s not easy shipping it out because of the snowstorms, and trucks being backed up. But we’ll get it there, however long it takes.” The Game isn’t the only celebrity who’s come onboard to help. Pop diva Cher got the ball rolling, donating 180,000 bottles of water; Mark Wahlberg and Diddy’s AQUAhydrate, joined by Eminem and Wiz Khalifa, pledged one million bottles; Meek Mill donated $50,000; and Madonna and Jimmy Fallon forked over $10,000 apiece. In his Instagram post, The Game also called out celebs like Madonna and Fallon for donating only $10,000, which he felt was insufficient given their immense wealth. read more...

An Arizona senator who wanted to make it a crime to take close-up video of police has killed his own bill because of public outcry. Senate Bill 1054 would have criminalized shooting video of police from a distance closer than 20 feet, unless permission was given. Arizona Sen. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, sponsored the bill, which was introduced earlier this month, but he was pressured into killing it this week, citing public backlash over concerns about free speech under the First Amendment. “It generated very emotional opposition on both sides,” Kavanagh said in a statement. “That dooms a bill to failure. Once a bill becomes so mired in controversy…it’s time to move on.” Kavanagh told U.S. News & World Report that he sponsored the bill based on his experience as a Port Authority officer at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City during the 1970s. He says he found syringes on one of R&B singer Wilson Pickett’s bandmates and had him up against the wall, when Pickett approached him and asked, “Is this going to take long?”  ...

  Let’s Imagine the character of this story is Mr. X. He had gone to malappuram for a company meeting, the same one which happens every year. A hundred people turned up, to boast about themselves and each other. A hundred mechanoids meeting, to discuss about the lingering question, what now. His mind was also a machine, sooty and greasy from the grind. The meeting got over. He got a room for the night, so that morning could be fresh for departure. And he was hungry. A quick shower and a change of clothes later, he found himself in the restaurant next door, where every table was merry, and food smelled delicious. His hunger increased twofold thinking about the food, and the legendary malappuram cuisine. He ordered a plate of porotta, chicken curry and tea. Before he knew it, there was food in front of him, steaming. That’s when he saw two tiny eyes through the display glass. Two eyes which were darting from table to table, taking in as much as it could, without sending anything to the tummy which was waiting to be fed. The owner of the young eyes had a sack in his hand. But no one was paying any heed to the sounds made by his stomach, which was crying by now. Pain shot through his heart, which was a feeling less part running the machine that was him. He beckoned the young eyes inside. It was when the young boy came inside, that he saw that the boy was not alone. A little girl was with him, who appeared to be his sister. Two pairs of eyes were staring into his plate. He told them to sit down. And they did; sack, dirty clothes and all. When he asked them what they wanted to eat, they silently pointed to his own plate. He ordered it again, porotta and chicken curry. As soon as it came, the young boy got ready to dip his hands into the food. Ravenous hands were stopped by his sister’s, who made sure both of them washed their hands before they put a morsel into their mouths. Everyone was staring, as though some grand event was happening.

Iceland Sentences 26 Corrupt Bankers To 74 Years In Prison

Iceland Sentences 26 Corrupt Bankers To 74 Years In Prison

avatar
(Source: AmericanNewsx) – Iceland just sentenced their 26th banker to prison for his part in the 2008 economic collapse. The charges ranged from breach of fiduciary duties to market manipulation to embezzlement. When most people think of Iceland, they envision fire and ice. Major volcanoes and vast ice fields are abundant due to its position on the northern part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. (A hot July day in Reykjavik is around 55 degrees.) However, Iceland is also noted for being one of the Nordic Socialist countries, complete with universal health care, free education and a lot other Tea Potty nightmares. Therefore, as you might imagine, they tend to view and react to economic situations slightly differently than the U.S. When the banking induced “Great Recession of ’08” struck, Iceland’s economic hit was among the hardest. However, instead of rewarding fraudulent banking procedures with tons of bailout money, they took a different path. Prior to the recession, Iceland had one of the more thriving economies in the world, in spite of the fact that their total population (327,000) wouldn’t even fill a mid-sized American city. When the recession struck, they were among the earliest and hardest hit. However, instead of running to the vaults to shower the banks with money, they let the banks fail. They also resisted traveling down the European/Republican austerity road. Instead, they kept their social programs intact at a time when they were most needed. And, they sent fraudulent bankers to jail. When Iceland’s three major banks collapsed, it resulted in defaults totaling $114 billion in a country with agross domestic product (GDP) of only $19 billion. In October, 2008 the parliament passed emergency legislation to take over the domestic operations of the major banks and established new banks to handle them. They did not, however, take over any of the foreign assets or obligations. Those stayed with the original banks, right into bankruptcy. They then brought charges against several banking executives for fraud and market manipulation, resulting in sentences ranging from four to five and a half years. As the special prosecutor said, Why should we have a part of our society that is not being policed or without responsibility? In the U.S., we simply...

Ross Ulbricht, Sentenced to life for running website silk road, files for appeal.

  Ross Ulbricht, convicted and sentenced to life in prison last year for running the darknet sales website Silk Road, had his legal team file an appeal yesterday. (I reported on his lawyer Joshua Dratel’s initial appeal plans right after sentencing). The defense’s main points of contention, as specifically expressed in the suit (in forceful ALL CAPS) below. Interpolated will be excerpts and summations from me and more extended quotes from the appeal explaining what the defense’s contentions mean: THE COURT ABUSED ITS DISCRETION AND DENIED ULBRICHT HIS FIFTH AND SIXTH AMENDMENT RIGHTS TO DUE PROCESS, THE RIGHT TO PRESENT A DEFENSE, AND A FAIR TRIAL BY (A) PRECLUDING THE DEFENSE FROM USING AT TRIAL THE EVIDENCE RELATING TO DEA SPECIAL AGENT CARL FORCE’S CORRUPTION; (B) REFUSING TO ORDER THE GOVERNMENT TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL DISCOVERY AND BRADY MATERIAL REGARDING CORRUPTION; AND (C) DENYING ULBRICHT’S MOTION FOR A NEW TRIAL BASED ON ADDITIONAL POST-TRIAL DISCLOSURES REGARDING FORCE AND ANOTHER CORRUPT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENT INVOLVED IN THE SILK ROAD INVESTIGATION…. Here is some previous reporting on Force and his corruption. He was a DEA agent who did a lot of the communication with “Dread Pirate Roberts” (DPR), the pseudonymous operator of Silk Road, and was responsible for entrapping him into an alleged murder for hire. Force also leaked info about the ongoing investigation to DPR in exchange for bitcoin payoffs. Dratel in the appeal continues to argue that Ulbricht being the admitted launcher of Silk Road does not mean he was necessarily the “Dread Pirate Roberts” who continued to run it. He posits that the purely digital nature of most of the evidence linking DPR to Ulbricht could have been falsified, and that agents deeply involved in the case are known to have been in the game essentially for the chance to steal bitcoin. This leads the appeal to state that all that evidence against Ulbricht “was permeated by corruption of two law enforcement agents participating in the investigation, the restrictions on cross-examination, and preclusion of expert witnesses offered to overcome those restrictions” and that all that “eviscerated Ulbricht’s defense and denied him a fair trial.” Dratel tried during the trial to get it delayed until Force’s case had been adjudicated—the...

By Mark Wachtler, whiteoutpress.com After decades of passionate debate, parents probably missed the repeated admissions by drug companies and governments alike that vaccines do in fact cause autism. For concerned parents seeking the truth, it’s worth remembering that the exact same people who own the world’s drug companies also own America’s news outlets.

It was Dr. Wakefield that first publicized the link between stomach disorders and autism, and taking the findings one step further, the link between stomach disorders, autism and the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine. For that discovery way back in 1996, and a subsequent research paper published by the doctor in 1998, Andrew Wakefield has found himself the victim of a world-wide smear campaign by drug corporations, governments and media companies. And while Dr. Wakefield has been persecuted and prosecuted to the extent of being unable to legally practice medicine because of his discovery, he has instead become a best-selling author, the founder of the Strategic Autism Initiative, and the Director of the Autism Media Channel. But in recent months, courts, governments and vaccine manufacturers have quietly conceded the fact that the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine most likely does cause autism and stomach diseases. Pharmaceutical companies have even gone so far as to pay out massive monetary awards, totaling in the millions, to the victims in an attempt to compensate them for damages and to buy their silence. Grassroots outcry It was a regular reader named Kathleen that brought this ongoing story to our attention here at Whiteout Press. When asked what her connection to the vaccine-autism battle was, the young reader replied, “I just researched it for a school project a while back and then I stayed on top of it, until I couldn’t stand it anymore. I’m not a parent, nor do I belong to any organization – a mere outside observer.” This reader isn’t alone. The news that vaccines cause autism has spread across the US despite a coordinated media black-out. She takes her concerns one step further explaining, “All I want is to see this information...

Known neurotoxin injected into “Zika” mothers in Brazil

Known neurotoxin injected into “Zika” mothers in Brazil

One of the key ingredients in vaccines such as DTaP, polio and Hep B is Phenoxyethanol. The DTaP vaccine became mandatory for pregnant women in Brazil in 2015 and is suspected to be the real cause behind the thousands of cases of microcephaly that have been linked to Zika. Phenoxyethanol is a glycol ether. Glycol ether are solvents that are found in all sorts of things such as paint, cleaners and fuel. Recently cosmetic companies have been replacing parabens with phenoxyethanol as the public have become more aware of the dangers of parabens, not that it is actually a safer ingredient. The product’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) says that it phenoxyethanol is harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin and that it can cause reproductive damage. The FDA has warned that Phenoxyethanol can cause damage to brain cells and the central nervous system when used in large quantities. The FDA has also issued warnings that the ingestion of Phenoxyethanol can be toxic and harmful for infants and suggest that breastfeeding mothers avoid using cosmetics containing this ingredient so that it is not transfered to the baby. so the FDA doesn’t think it’s safe for breastfeeding mothers to apply a small amount of phenoxyethanol topically, but it is being injected into the blood streams of pregnant women. According to the EPA, when tested on mice it caused interference with reproductivity, chromosomal changes and DNA mutations. Injecting pregnant women with a toxic substance that is known to cause brain damage seems like a much more likely explanation to the thousands of cases of microcephaly in Brazil than a mosquito virus that usually causes nothing more than a rash and fever.   Written by Sierra...
