In his latest close encounter with top US CEOs, President Donald Trump told drugmakers at a White House meeting Tuesday they were charging “astronomical” prices and promised to get better bargains for government health programs, something even Bernie Sanders would agree with. He also said he would focus on finding ways to get new medicines to market faster.
“The pricing has been astronomical,” Trump said to CEOs of some of the world’s biggest drugmakers, who came to Washington after Trump’s criticism of the industry earlier this month sent drug and biotechnology stocks plunging. “You folks have done a very great job over the years but we have to get the prices down.”
At the meeting was Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America CEO Stephen Ubl, Merck & Co. CEO Ken Frazier, Eli Lilly & Co. CEO Dave Ricks, Celgene Corp. CEO Bob Hugin and others. They embraced Trump’s calls for lower taxes and fewer regulations. The gathering with drug CEOs came after Trump’s said on Jan. 12 that the industry was “getting away with murder” and promised to act on drug prices. Since then, drugmakers have turned up their lobbying efforts with Congress as a potentially friendlier force that might counter Trump.
“Some of the policies you’ve come out and suggested i think can help us do more — tax, regulations,” said Lilly’s Ricks. Also at Tuesday’s White House meeting were Novartis AG CEO Joe Jimenez and Johnson & Johnson Worldwide Chairman of Pharmaceuticals Joaquin Duato.
The Monsanto company is still reeling from a spring 2015 declaration by the World Health Organization that its flagship product Roundup is a “probable human carcinogen.”
Now, the company’s image, and the image of its top-selling product, have taken yet another hit, this time in the United States.
In California, where organic farming and healthy living has gained a huge foothold, the company’s flagship product Roundup will now be labeled in similar fashion to the WHO ruling — with a label stating that it is a possible cancer threat.
Monsanto Defense Team Denied
According to this report from the Associated Press out of Fresno, CA where the court proceedings took place, Monsanto attorney Trenton Norris argued on Friday that the potential warning label would have direct financial consequences for the company.
“It will absolutely be used in ways that will harm Monsanto,” he said according to the report, which can be read in full by clicking here, adding that consumers would likely see the labels and stop buying Roundup. The firm also said that it will challenge the ruling.
The Winter Solstice sparked some very different vibes than usual.
New experiences for the soul, the character and the ego often come in stealth. This was almost a collected force of ‘new’ that hit the weary pilgrims in Morph City. Weary of the year of 2016, mostly being based on both mundane confusion and celestial confusion. It would be a fair statement to say the impact is like this:
It´s time to step out of doubt, time to step out of confusion and take a stand for your – Self and follow the voice within that will lead you out of any Status Quo.
There often is a lot of Status Quo in our lives that we hold on to because by doing that, we hold on to our comfort zones. People struggle with different things; the classics are:
Clinging on to a romantic relationship – even after the embers in the fireplace of that have gone out and only smoke is left.
Clinging to the place you live – even though it doesn’t suit you anymore. (On the same day well before Solstice I had four friends I have known for years write me that they got evicted.)
Clinging on to a work that holds no value for you anymore, other than the paycheck. Which is reason enough in itself in this decade of manufactured poverty and lack of jobs.
These three are pretty mundane.
So are these and that is the Shift that occurred:
-Am I walking in spiritual worn out shoes?
-Am I following blindly what somebody said years ago or do I need to challenge that and find my own way in this ‘mess’?
During the Solstice, I advised a client to take a specific compound. She answered: My Guru, who is dead, never pointed to that compound in general, so I can’t do that. I answered: Maybe your Guru didn’t point to water sports – does that mean that you can’t take a swim?
Obviously she´s not talking to me anymore. I don’t need to be right, but: That’s silly ei?
-Which boundaries have I set for myself, and are they holding me down, and did I examine them before I took them as mine, and really investigate that if they are good for somebody else they might not be that good for me?
-I am (still) floating around in a soup of doubt, if so, is it time to get ashore?
Not any of these sensations will outlive 2017, if we do not do something about them. Land Ho!
2017 will be a year well suited for changing the things we deep down know that we need to change, and to be gone with mundane or spiritual bypasses and ‘over jump’ reactions, confusing them with ‘spiritual self-defense’.
It´s time to be challenged in every which way thinkable.
As The Corbett Report reported last year, Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, has slithered out from his hiding place and re-emerged as a figure on the political stage. He is now advocating for a rebirth of the US’ infamous “Phoenix Program” to target the ISIS terrorists the US created, and he is advising Trump from the shadows. Today Douglas Valentine, author of The Phoenix Program and The CIA As Organized Crime joins us to discuss what The Phoenix Program is and why its resurrection is so ominous.
Nigeria’s Farmers Alliance of over 14 million farmers have called on all farmers especially in the Northeast to reject the genetically modified organisms (GMO) and Hybrid seeds distributed by the United Nation’s World Food Program (WFP) and the World Bank.
The body in a letter to the UN Security Council (UNSC), called for intervention to stop WFP and World Bank from using their international status to spread GMO seeds for Monsanto and Cargill in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa.
Farmers’ Alliance said that ‘Bill Gates has used the UN World Food Program and World Bank to promote and distribute GMO seeds aimed at displacing use of natural seeds in Black Sub-Saharan Africa as the first step of displacing all indigenous farmers, who will be left out with no means of livelihood, while Monsanto (owned by Bill Gates) would have a monopoly of the seed market’.
However, what was kept silent and unknown to the poor Nigerian farmers is that their natural crops were destroyed by hired mercenaries called Boko Haram by the same billionaire sponsors, so that they would be replaced with GMO and Hybrid seeds from Monsanto and Cargill. This would mean that after this first cropping season with the GMO and Hybrid seeds planted in the entire Northeast food basket of Nigeria, the Food Security of Nigeria would be effectively captured by Monsanto! Farmers cannot replant the patented GMO and Hybrid seeds from Monsanto.
Every planting season they must go to Monsanto seed brokers to purchase the seeds at a cost yet to be told to them. Should they replant the GMO and Hybrid seeds they will get a harvest which is less than one-third their first, and subsequently the yields would fall to no yields at all! According to a spokesman for the group, Ahmed Sule, ‘the situation is dire and is an international emergency.
Over the past decade, Cellebrite – an Israeli technology company – has become the go-to supplier for British police forces wanting to crack phones.
‘In the past few years, mobile phone examination has been rolled out to local officers for investigating low-level crime on a mass scale’
The firm is contracted by the FBI and security services worldwide. It has quickly come to dominate the domestic policing market for mobile phone forensics. “Mobile phone examination has become absolutely routine,” says Peter Sommer, a professor at Birmingham City University and digital forensics expert witness, who has observed its use in the investigation of high-level crime.
Police documents seen by the Cable back up Sommer’s assessment. They reveal that over the past few years, mobile phone examination has been rolled out to local officers for investigating lower-level crime on a mass scale. The types of crimes that can warrant a mobile phone search include the likes of assault, burglary and traffic offences.
Meet your local phone crackers
According to Avon and Somerset procurement records, the force uses a combination of in-house and external services to crack phones and digital devices. The South West Digital Forensics team consists of Avon and Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, Wiltshire, and Dorset police forces.
Bannon is correct that the US media – indeed, the entire Western print and TV media – is nothing but a propaganda machine for the ruling elite. The presstitutes are devoid of integrity, moral conscience, and respect for truth.
Who else but the despicable Western media justified the enormous war crimes committed against millions of peoples by the Clinton, Bush, and Obama regimes in nine countries—Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, Palestine, and the Russian areas of Ukraine?
Who else but the despicable Western media justified the domestic police states that have been erected in the Western world in the name of the “war on terror”?
Along with the war criminals that comprised the Clinton, Bush, and Obama regimes, the Western media should be tried for their complicity in the massive crimes against humanity.
The Western media’s effort to sustain the high level of tension between the West and Russia is a danger to all mankind, a direct threat to life on earth. Gorbachev’s warnings are correct…
The world today is overwhelmed with problems. Policymakers seem to be confused and at a loss.
But no problem is more urgent today than the militarization of politics and the new arms race. Stopping and reversing this ruinous race must be our top priority.
The current situation is too dangerous.
…Politicians and military leaders sound increasingly belligerent and defense doctrines more dangerous. Commentators and TV personalities are joining the bellicose chorus. It all looks as if the world is preparing for war.
Yet presstitutes declare that if Trump lifts the sanctions it proves that Trump is a Russian agent. It is paradoxical that the Democrats and the liberal-progressive-left are mobilizing the anti-war movement to oppose Trump’s anti-war policy!
By refusing to acknowledge and to apologize for its lies, euphemistically called “fake news,” the Western media has failed humanity in a number of other ways. For example, by consciously telling lies, the media has legitimized the suborning of perjury and false testimony used to convict innocent defendants (such as Walter McMillian in Bryan Stevenson’s Just Mercy) in America’s “justice” system, which has about the same relation to justice as genocide has to mercy. If the media can lie about world events, police and prosecutors can lie about crimes.
Breaking News: a Polish colleague, renowned naturopath Jerzy Zieba, just sent through a complete game-changer piece of information on exactly the subject I am endeavoring to write about. This is it “Judges at the German Federal Supreme Court have confirmed that the measles virus does not exist and that the measles vaccination may have been injected into millions of unsuspecting German citizens for sinister reasons.” This really is a bombshell, because although many vaccine sceptics have, for many years, expressed grave doubts about the veracity of vaccination programmes, this is the first time a High Court has ruled on the issue.
The seriousness of this expose is beyond question. Millions of children worldwide have been immunized against a virus that does not exist. It is surely the medical scam of the decade. What substances have been transferred into the veins of these innocent children?
So, where to go from here.. I would like to open-up the whole subject for wider scrutiny, exploring the bigger picture issues that hover just under the surface of the status-quo’s giant propaganda exercise to sell conventional pharmaceutical medicine as the only reputable road to protection and cure of known diseases.
After some 40 years as an organic farmer who shunned the use of all the pharmaceutical ‘cures’ recommended by non-organic practitioners and vets, I can say quite categorically: a natural diet and living conditions that express and promote the psychological and physiological needs of sentient animals (and plants) go at least 90% of the way to producing a disease free life.
Now I say this because I witnessed it on my farm – and have to report that I marveled at the results. Once my dairy herd, beef cattle, pigs and chickens had been offered the life-style that each needed in order to live-out their natural propensities in a stress and toxic-free environment, everything fell into place. I never had to call the vet to administer pharmacological drugs, vaccinations or emergency revitalization remedies of any description.
A former “chief propagandist” for the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), now turned cannabis advocate, made startling comments at the recent Marijuana for Medical Professionals Conference in Denver, Colorado. There, Belita Nelson described what many of us suspected – the DEA is corrupt to the bone and full of lies.
“Marijuana is safe, we know it is safe. It’s our cash cow and we will never give up,” Nelson said to the audience of doctors and nurses, describing the modus operandi of the DEA.
“Nelson represented the DEA in the international media from 1998 to 2004. She did regular appearances on the talk show circuit, including the Oprah Winfrey show and Nightline, espousing the dangers of cannabis. Today she advocates for its medical use, specifically in the treatment of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in professional football players through an organization she founded: The Gridiron Cannabis Foundation.”
It didn’t take long for Nelson to realize cannabis has medical benefits. In 2000, she was watching her close friend suffer from late-stage cancer, losing more than 50% of his weight and no longer being able to eat or sleep.
Being aware of cannabis’ ability to treat these symptoms, Nelson procured some for her friend, who, along with a better diet, was able to live nine more years. Nelson even grew the cannabis herself, knowing black market products were potentially unsafe.
How many times have you finished an exam only to remember the answers to some of the questions an hour or so later? Did you have the knowledge in your mind? Yes. Do you understand the important concepts that go along with a subject but maybe haven’t memorized the less useful details? Yes.
“How many times have you remembered something 5 minutes just after the teacher said: “Stop writing,” only to receive your results a month later to realize that you were only 1 mark short of the top grade? Does that mean remembering 5 minutes earlier would’ve made you more qualified for a particular job?” – Suli Breaks
Why Do We Pedestal The Exam & Grades?
So why is the EXAM the one thing that is put on a pedestal beyond everything else? Why are we letting our grades, which are ultimately the tools by which people determine how well we have learned any given material, tell people what we understand? In my view, herein lies the absurdity of how we measure our knowledge.
In the video below, Suli Breaks delivers a powerful spoken word piece drawing attention to not only exams but the entire school system. He sheds light on the fact that as a society we are simply repeating methods of learning and doing that are based off of inherently faulty ideals.
According to an article in the Daily Mail, long time friend of Bill Clinton, Jeffrey Epstein, is being accused of luring a young woman into his elaborate sex trafficking enterprise by making false promises.
Disgraced Wall Street mogul Jeffrey Epstein is being accused by a woman of luring her into his elaborate sex trafficking enterprise under the ruse he would use his wealth and connections to get her into college.
She has slapped him a federal lawsuit in US District Court in New York demanding damages for forcing her to perform sex acts on him, according to documents filed Thursday and obtained by DailyMail.com.
Using the alias ‘Jane Doe 43,’ the woman filed a federal lawsuit against Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, Sarah Kellen, Lesley Groff and Natalya Malyshev.
She describes the 64-year-old Epstein – then 50 – as a billionaire who usesd his wealth to commit illegal sex crimes in violation of the law. and accuses him of having a compulsive sexual preference for young girls as young as 13 and as ‘old’ as 25.
In 2008 Epstein plead guilt to only one charge of soliciting an under-age prostitute and only served 13 months of his 18 month prison sentence. According to the Daily Mail the move came under intense fire for being overly lenient. Epstein was also forced to register as a sex offender.
Needless to say, as we teeter on the precipice, the human riddle has not been solved.
It is a fierce hatred that drives the war machine. We see it now in the way calculating commentators criticize President Trump for quoting Andrew Jackson about the banks that rule the world. We’ve had our fill of seeing our presidents lie about the reasons they take us to war. All the politicians and journalists who profit under the table from their rabid defense of kosher swindles do so because their livelihoods depend on the bribes they get for supporting Jewish control of reality, and for exonerating Jews for all the crimes they continue to commit. Jewish companies like Monsanto and their terminator seeds reveal what they have in store for the rest of us. Our current Congress is full of these drooling propagandists who continue to ardently assist in the conversion of America into a Jewish plantation, which it basically is already.
Human history of the last 200 years has been dominated by Jews. Because the Jews own virtually all the mass media, we don’t get to hear what Jews really do, running country after country into the ground with their fractional reserve lending schemes in which they create money out of nothing and then charge you for using what was yours to begin with. They cater to diseases and profit from what they say are cures but are usually avenues to new afflictions, and endless medical bills.
There is a phenomenon in life that affects doctors, and cops, and newspaper types. They all profit from discovering what they say are bad things, so in order to maximize their profits, they help invent these bad things. You see it everywhere. The FBI invents terror threats so they can look like heroes. The State Department ratchets up hair raising stories about foreign leaders who actually are benefitting their people, but with the power of Jewish media and a pliable president like Obama, that benevolent leader can be turned into an ogre. And then raped and murdered in the street by terrorists the U.S. and Israel hired to do him in.
Israel and the United States are conducting a worldwide campaign to create smoldering failed states in all those countries who fail to knuckle under to the Jewish worldwide tyrannical superstate in which Holy Bibles have been replaced by stock market tickers, and Boy Scout leaders leer at their young charges now that their pederasty has been ruled legal by the homophiliacs on our Supreme Court.
A.I is bullshit – exactly what I’ve been spouting for years. Nothing more than “if then else”. Faster and faster processors will give the illusion of “intelligence” because it can process instructions faster than a human can think, but it will never be able to “think” or act “outside of the box” in reaction to a unexpected input. This is not to say that these “expert systems ” have no value, but they can never replace or even equal human thought. Suffice to say – a computer can never be “conscious” as touted by Hollywood and the fear mongers. Unfortunately in the struggle for more and more profit for less and less work – some humans will allow machine to take aware the burden of decision making.
“The British Government has colluded with Monsanto and should be held accountable in the International Criminal Court in The Hague for crimes against humanity and ecocide.” Dr Rosemary Mason.
The British public and the environment are being poisoned with a deadly cocktail of 320 pesticides. Moreover, Wales has become a storage dump for Monsanto’s most toxic chemicals. These are the messages conveyed by Dr Rosemary Mason in her recent open letter to Councillor Rob Stewart, the leader of Swansea City and County Council.
Dr Mason adds that Swansea has over the years been a testing ground for glyphosate with the outcome being a huge spike in illness and disease among the local population as well as ongoing environmental devastation. There has been a long-term reckless use of a glyphosate-based weedkiller in Swansea, regardless of EU recommendations.
Dr Henk Tennekes, an independent toxicologist from the Netherlands, and Dr Pierre Mineau, an expert on ecotoxicology from Canada, both prophesied environmental catastrophe from the self-regulated and unsustainable use of pesticides by the agrochemical industry.
In Tennekes’ book, ‘The Systemic Insecticides: a disaster in the making’, he showed that these chemicals act on the brains of insects (and humans). He showed that collapse of bee colonies, the loss of other invertebrates and bird declines in Europe are associated with chronic low levels of these chemicals. Dr Pierre Mineau wrote a Report for the American Bird Conservancy ‘Neonicotinoids and Birds’ in which he accused the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of collusion with the agrochemical industry and negligence.
Mason has written to the relevant UK authorities about these issues and the situation in Wales, but the UK Environment Agency has refused to act.
Monsanto using Wales as a toxic dump
Monsanto established a factory in Newport in 1949, and Mason notes that the company paid a contractor to illegally dump chemical waste in Brofiscin Quarry, Grosfaen. These included polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the defoliant Agent Orange and dioxins used in the Vietnam War. When PCBs were banned in the US, the UK government agreed to ramp up production in a Monsanto-owned factory in Wales in 1971. They were manufactured until 1977. Toxic dumps were established at seven quarries around Wales.
Brofiscin Quarry in Grosfaen, near Cardiff, is one of the most contaminated places in Britain. In 2003, the lining of the quarry burst and the orange contents drained into west Cardiff. According to engineering company WS Atkins, the site contains at least 67 toxic chemicals. The Environment Agency claimed: “they offered no identifiable harm or immediate danger to human health.”
Citing a study by WWF-UK in 2003, Mason shows that residues of PCBs and other organochlorines were found in 75 adipose tissue samples taken from human cadavers throughout 1990 and early 1991 from Welsh populations. The researchers found: “little changes in the concentrations of these compounds in the Welsh population over the last decade, despite reduction in their use that came into force in the 1970s.”
Mason states that children in Wales have low scores in the PISA tests, a measure of reading, maths and science ability in 15 year olds, and low educational achievement in primary schools.
She also notes that organophosphate pesticides have supposedly been banned but are now used on salmon lice in fish farms: from 2006-2016 the salmon produced by fish farms has increased by 35%, but the use of OPs increased by 932%.
Theresa May promoting the great agrochemicals-pharmaceuticals scam
Glyphosate contamination of food is associated with an epidemic of diseases: in 2012, the area treated by glyphosate in the UK was 1,750,000 ha and by 2014 it had increased to 2,250,000 ha. Glyphosate (captures) and washes out the following minerals: boron, calcium, cobalt, copper, iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, nickel and zinc.
Hypercholesterolaemia caused by glyphosate is now treated by statins.

In a recent ruling, judges at the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) confirmed that the measles virus does not exist. Furthermore, there is not a single scientific study in the world which could prove the existence of the virus in any scientific literature. This raises the question of what was actually injected into millions over the past few decades.
Not a single scientist, immunologist, infectious disease specialist or medical doctor has ever been able to establish a scientific foundation, not only for the vaccination of measles but any vaccination for infants, pregnant women, the elderly and even many adult subgroups.
The fact that many vaccines are ineffective is becoming increasingly apparent. Merck was slapped with two separate class action lawsuits contending they lied about the effectiveness of the mumps vaccine in their combination MMR shot, and fabricated efficacy studies to maintain the illusion for the past two decades that the vaccine is highly protective.
In the United States, children typically receive their mumps vaccination as part of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises children to receive their first dose between 12 and 18 months, and their second between the ages of 4 and 6.
