Few corporations in the world are as loathed—and as sinister—as Monsanto. But the threat it poses to people and planet could be reaching new heights, as the World Health Organization has recently upgraded Monsanto’s main product as carcinogenic to humans. With protests against the agro-chemical giant held in over 40 countries in May, learn why the global movement against Monsanto is of critical importance to our future. In this episode of The Empire Files, Abby Martin issues a scathing expose on the corporate polluter, chronicling it’s rise to power, the collusion of its crimes by the US government, and highlighting the serious danger it puts us in today.
The corporate monster must be brought down (…I actually wrote this before I heard her concluding words…) It is the ‘lynch-pin’ of the entire structural behemoth. This is the rotten core of the sickest, slickest con-game yet devised.
When something this diseased has such a pervasive criminal hold, no matter how superficially ‘wondrous’ and irresistible its fabricated appearance & iniquitous political ‘authority,’ the spectral run-away illusion of benign control is destined to peel away, degrade rapidly & disintegrate. It is only a question of time. When this vile contrivance collapses, a lot of big, ugly heads will roll and the stench of their demise will encircle the globe.
Watch this space America, their sleazy number’s up, and if you have any sense you’ll stay clear of the wreckage. To hell with this gremlin Monsanto and all the despicable crony villainy it incorporates.

Billy Demoss is a public figure for his outspoken views on vaccines, GMO’s, the fluoridation of our tap water, geongineering, and all government corruption. He is also the founder of CalJam which is a convention for alternative medicine, chiropractic, that caters to awake, like minded people. He also runs the most successful chriporactic practice in Orange County, where he runs free nutrition, and vaccine workshops on his free time. Some major names have spoke at CalJam since the creation, making it the place to go if you care about humanity, our planet, healthy living by eating organic, and any other topics mainstream media tries to keep us in the dark from.
Through the fog I saw Billy one day surfing, and said “that was weird, it was totally sunny, and those planes went by and made it cloudy, and foggy”. He responded “yeah, it’s called chemtrails, or geoengineering, they are spraying us like cockroaches”. He also added something about the relation to Monsanto, vaccines, depopulation, slow kill, and how it all connects. I got a chance to sit with Billy and ask him what he thought about vaccines. Not only vaccines, the Zika virus as well? Billy: “The media is headlining articles with “Zika Time To Go Back To DDT”;(dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) an insecticide sprayed by airplanes. I knew they were going to be selling another hoax, another fear mongering, to create panic, so the people think we need to do something, I predicted in one of the videos I made the second I learned of Zika, after I saw “Zika Spreading To America” just like SARS, swine flu, Ebola, and all these false flags to create a vaccine,
I guarantee they will come out with a vaccine that they are going to rush. No science to even back that this thing is even caused by Zika, which was a virus created in 1947 by the Rockefellars. They are going to have a reason to spray DDT on everybody, when they stopped spraying DDT, that’s what stopped Polio, as seen in Suzanne Humphrie, MD’s book “dissolving illusions” http://drsuzanne.net. The government is going to spray DDT, Polio is going to come back, and we are going to need more vaccines. When you get out of the Matrix of being so brainwashed, you have this clarity, you see how the game is being played, when you understand the chess game, you see how it all fits together for global human depopulation.
I’m not going to try to stop parents that want to shoot up their kids with a bunch of viral particles grown on dead animal parts, aborted human fetuses, mixed with carcinogens mixed and heavy metals, go ahead, they’re your kids. I am not trying to sell anything, I’m just trying to give people hope and faith, and give them confidence in their own body’s immune system. To help them stop believing all the bullshit that is being fed to them by big pharma, they make money when you are sick!
Their main objective is to lower the population, if you want to be part of the project, and be part of the people that go down, then be it. Those of us that are doing things like: not eating GMO, drinking clean, un-fluoridated alkaline water, not vaccinating our youth, or ourselves, getting chiropractic, we lead a healthy lifestyle. I have people come to my practice and tell me “I lead a completely 100% healthy lifestyle” drugs are not in a healthy lifestyle, and vaccines are one of the most dangerous drugs on the planet. DDT’s are just about poisoning more and more people
I don’t know how people have faith in the news anymore, you have to be a moron to watch TV and actually believe what you hear, because everything I see, I know there is an agenda behind it. Those of you that have faith in the pharmaceutical cartel, one of the most evil empires on the planet, and you stick a needle in your child, something that was made in a laboratory, you have no idea what is in there, you are going off blind faith, even if they had good intentions, people make mistakes, you are sticking this needle into your kid with this hypothetical, mythical, fairytale, that the vaccine is going to raise their immunity to protect from all the microbes out there, we have co-existed with microbes since the beginning of time, and your body has an innate way to protect you from everything out there, but if you eat crap food, you have bad thoughts, you are suffering from subluxation in your back, and neck, from sitting at a computer all day, are a mad person, and don’t have love in your heart, you are going to exist at a lower level.
People always ask to see my science, I’m not the one telling you to stick needles
in your kids, my point is, I’m living congruent to genetics, congruent to expressing 100% of my potential, living congruent with the universal order. I’m not sticking needles in myself, I’m not sticking needles in my kids, show me one independent study on vaccines with a controlled group, double blind, there isn’t any. Kids are getting about 40 vaccines before they are 12 months old, show me one study on the interaction of all of those different vaccines all delivered at the same time, which creates just chaos in the body, and confusion in the body, that’s why you have all of these kids with cancer, and autoimmune diseases, the people just believe it because they are so blind they would rather watch a football game, than pick up a book and learn the reality of you, and your kids health.
I don’t even have to do this, I only do this because I care, I could just go surfing, why don’t I just move to Costa Rica and surf all day?, because there is literally a burning purpose of love within me for my fellow man, and the children of the universe, to wake people up, get people to read, help pull people out of the fog. What a trippy world we live in, and it is only going to get worse if we don’t stand up against the machine. Come to CalJam, support my mission.”
If you love the taste of an ice cold soda, you may want to determine whether the flavor is actually worth the risk. Sugary drinks are killing around 184,000 people each year, according to a new study.
The research, published in the American Heart Association’s Circulation journal, points the finger at sugar-laden drinks ranging from sodas to sweetened iced tea, fruit drinks, and sports/energy drinks. (more…)
After years of research and a series of unpleasant experiences concerning the current child protection services system, Alec Cope decided to combat the cancerous corruption through information. Freelance writing articles as a form of protest and distributing them throughout his former high-school and local area, Alec struck special chords with whomever he was in contact with.
Alec has been involved in activism such as sit down protests as well as Idle No More gatherings. Being independent for the majority of his time, Alec became a member of the WeAreChange family to assist one of the organizations that inspired him to become active in the first place. With a larger platform and positive support Alec has committed the majority of his time to research, writing, and maintaining social media with the goal to continue expanding the awakening sweeping throughout all levels of society.
Growing up within a rural area in Northern Michigan as well as being a native American descendant, Alec is seeking to expose environmental abuse in his state as well as globally. A high-school dropout, Alec chases his passion for writing and empowering individuals while showing any isolated person that they too can overcome the odds with a community that will support them. Alec lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan near Kalamazoo.
MEDIA ROOTS– When was the last time you stopped to think about the one thing you can’t live without? I don’t mean the Internet – I’m talking about water. Without clean drinking water, life could not go on. This is why it’s so important that we know what is in our water. For the past sixty-five years, city governments nationwide have been adding a controversial substance called fluoride to municipal water supplies.
You probably recognize the word fluoride from the back of your toothpaste tube or from your visits to the dentist. But the fluoride added to our water is not the same as that in our toothpaste. The chemical added to our water is a fluorine compound called hexafluorosilicic acid that is generated as a by-product from the phosphate fertilizer industry.
Phosphates are minerals that are used to make fertilizer, and phosphate mining industry is a giant moneymaker. Fluoride is created by the production of fertilizer as well as in the manufacturing of steel, aluminum, glass, and cement. Previously, the lack of government regulation allowed gaseous fluoride to move through factory smokestacks and straight into our atmosphere. Now, environmental regulations require giant filtration systems called “scrubbers” atop the stacks to keep these toxic chemicals from escaping into the air. Fluorosilicic acid is then extracted from these scrubbers and condensed to a water-based solution which is packaged unrefined and sold to city governments for the purpose of water fluoridation.
By selling the fluoride byproducts for this purpose, companies avoid the huge cost of disposing of these chemicals in the environment safely, and according to regulation. Back in the 1930’s, a band of industrial corporations – including Monsanto, U.S. Steel, Union Carbide, and Aluminum Company of America (ALCOA), the leading producer of aluminum – had been cheaply disposing of their fluoride byproducts into the environment for years. This changed when their toxic waste became the target of negative press in the local news. A 1933 toxicology report by the USDA had warned of fluoride’s toxicity, singling out the aluminum industry as the biggest culprit.
The new potential of legal liability due to the exposure of workers and communities to industrial fluoride scared these corporations. Knowing that disposing of industrial fluoride waste safely was expensive, ALCOA employed biochemist Gerald Cox in 1936, to argue for fluoride’s dental benefits through experimentation on rats. Cox, neither a doctor nor a dentist, concluded that fluoride strengthened and protected teeth against decay and began to tour the country promoting water fluoridation on behalf of his employers. Interestingly, Cox’s findings ran contrary to the position originally held by the American Dental Association (ADA) on water fluoridation.
In 1944, the Journal of the American Dental Association published the following statement:
“We do know that the use of drinking water containing as little as 1.2 to 3.0 parts per million of fluoride will cause such developmental disturbances as osteosclerosis, spondylosis, and osteopetrosis, and we cannot afford to run the risk of producing such serious systemic disturbances…”
In spite of this warning by the ADA, Grand Rapids, Michigan became the first community to fluoridate its drinking water the very next year.
In 1947 Oscar R. Ewing, a paid attorney for ALCOA, was picked to head the Federal Security Agency. In this position he oversaw the Public Health Service or PHS (which is now the Department of Health and Human Services). This enabled him to change the Code of Federal Regulations, and place all control of drinking water fluoridation in the hands of his own department. Making clear his lingering ties to the aluminum industry and their expensive toxic waste, Ewing made fluoridation promotion one of the first official policies of the PHS. Over the next three years, 87 additional American cities began fluoridating their water.
The study that is often referred to in fluoride’s defense was conducted by the National Institute of Dental Research (NIDR) of the United States Public Health Service (PHS). It sought to determine whether there was a relationship between fluoridation and tooth decay. Released in 1988, the multi-million dollar nationwide survey examined 39,000 U.S. school children aged 5-17 from 84 different fluoridated and non-fluoridated geographical areas.
Surprisingly, the study uncovered a declining trend in tooth decay rates in both fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas, mostly due to overall better hygiene. The overriding conclusion from the extensive study was that there is no relationship between tooth decay and fluoride ingestion. Despite this consensus, this study is still commonly cited to link lowered decay rates in fluoridated areas. A seldom-reported fact is that the same trend was found in non-fluoridated areas too.
Fluoride overexposure can bring serious health risks. The most common affliction due to overconsumption is called fluorosis, a condition characterized by a discoloration of teeth or changes in bone density. An excess of fluoride eats away at the enamel of your teeth, causing craters and surface discoloration. Dental fluorosis is the first clear and obvious sign that your body is being poisoned by too much fluoride, and cases can range from mild to severe. This occurs because only 50% of all fluoride taken in by the body is excreted. The remaining fluoride is disseminated throughout the body, accumulating in our bones, pineal gland and other tissues. In Karnataka, India, an excess of fluoride has turned the ground water into a slow poison, crippling at least 10,000 people.
The Director of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, Dr D Nagaraj, says that “due to fluoride concentration in water, many people in districts [in Karnataka, India] like Dharwad and Tumkur have spinal cord diseases. These are progressive diseases, after decades of consumption. People are battling with permanent disabilities.”
Alarmingly, a 1991 study by the U.S. Public Health Service found that the rates of osteosarcoma, a deadly type of bone cancer, were significantly higher in fluoridated communities than in non-fluoridated communities. The Harvard School of Dental Medicine found the same link in study done ten years later. Additional studies have associated fluoride ingestion with other serious health problems, including chromosomal damage, morphological changes to their kidneys and brain, hypo activity (or inactivity), damage to the thyroid gland, skeletal fluorosis, osteoporosis, liver cancer, and fertility problems.
The most distressing findings come from 18 human studies done in China, India, Iran and Mexico that show a substantial lowering of IQ in fluoridated areas. The ingestion of fluoride has been shown to increase the gastrointestinal absorption of aluminum by over 600%, and the absorption of heavy metals like aluminum is speculated to have a direct correlation to Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological brain disorders. Although a direct correlation between Alzheimer’s disease and fluoride ingestion is inconclusive, it is interesting to note that the rate of Alzheimer’s is twice as high in America than in Europe, where many countries have banned fluoridation.
Many countries around the world are skeptical of the benefits of adding fluoride to drinking water. Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan and China have all ruled out water fluoridation as a safe and fair practice.
If you want to find out whether you’re drinking fluoridated water, the first thing you can do is access your city’s fluoridation status on the Center for Disease Control’s website in its oral health section.
If your water is fluoridated, it’s not a lost cause. You can speak out in your community or at city council meetings to let your local representatives know your concerns. To remove fluoride from your water you have a couple of options. You can equip your home with water filtration systems like those at Equinox or Burkey. Filters like Pur and Brita do not remove fluoride. If you buy bottled drinking water, reverse osmosis and distillation remove almost all fluoride.
If your city is planning to fluoridate you can stop it! Activists in Pennsylvania have successfully fought off fluoridation legislation since 1987 and they’re at it again. There is still a chance to put a halt to the fluoridation process in your own city.
Whether or not you support water fluoridation, the real issue here is having a choice. No chemical, no matter what its supposed benefits are, should be forced upon the public without their consent. Having access to clean water should be a fundamental right for every human being.
“Water is the lifeblood of our bodies, our economy, our nation and our well-being.” -Stephen Johnson
After numerous attempts to get data from city officials proving the benefits of mass fluoridation, I kept getting referred back to either the respective city’s water website or other government controlled sites. I also attempted to get in contact with Ellie Nadler, the head of San Diego’s Coalition for Fluoridation, but couldn’t find any legitimate website or group presence for that matter. Ellie backed out of any interviews and refused to give a statement.
Health authorities are planning to sterilise nearly 10,000 people in southern China over the next four days as part of a population control programme.
Some of the people in Puning City will be forced to have the procedure carried out against their will.
Amnesty International says forced sterilisation “amounts to torture”.
Reports in the Chinese media say that Puning Health authorities in Guangdong Province have launched a special campaign to sterilise people who already have at least one child in order to ensure local birth control quotas are met.
Chinese newspaper reports say that those who refuse to be sterilised have seen their elderly mothers or fathers taken away and detained.
Hundreds of people in Puning are said to have been locked up.
Kate Allen, Director of Amnesty International UK, said: “It is appalling that the authorities are subjecting people to such an invasive procedure against their will.
“Reports that relatives are imprisoned as a means of pressurising couples into submitting to surgery are incredibly concerning.
“The Puning City authorities must condemn this practice immediately and ensure that others are not forcibly sterilised.”
More than 1,300 people in the city have been held in local government buildings where they were given “lectures” on China’s family planning regulations.
Huang Ruifeng is the father of three girls.
“Several days ago, a village official called me and asked me or my wife to return for the surgery,” Huang told the local paper. “Otherwise they would take away my father.”
His father was later rounded up and detained by the authorities.
According to Puning rules, farmers are allowed to have a second child if the first child was a girl.
