January 2, 2020
Recommendation
FDA, CDC and state and local partners are investigating an outbreak of illnesses caused by Salmonella Javiana. Epidemiologic and traceback evidence indicate that fruit mix with cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes from Tailor Cut Produce of North Brunswick, New Jersey, is a potential source of this outbreak.

The firm recalled the fruit mix, called Fruit Luau, as well as cut honeydew, cut cantaloupe and cut pineapple products on December 7. Food service and institutional food operators should not sell or serve the recalled products.

Tailor Cut Produce reports that their products may be found in restaurants, banquet facilities, hotels, schools, long-term care facilities and institutional food service establishments in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Because the recalled products may have been distributed to nursing homes, schools, hospitals and other facilities that cater to vulnerable populations, it is important that these facilities do not sell or serve them. Please consult with your distributor to confirm the source of the fruit mix and cut fruit used in your operation.

Background
As of December 30, 2019, CDC is reporting 96 illnesses confirmed by Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) in CA, CO, CT, DE, IL, MN, NJ, NY, PA, VA, and WA. Illnesses were reported from states where Tailor Cut Produce distributes, including Pennsylvania, New York City, New Jersey, and Delaware. Ill people from other states reported traveling to these states in the week before their illness started. CDC reports only cases confirmed by WGS, and these numbers may differ from the numbers that states are investigating.

FDA’s inspection at Tailor Cut Produce is ongoing. FDA is currently collecting records to support a traceback investigation and will provide updates as more information becomes available.

What Products are Recalled?
Tailor Cut Produce of New Jersey, recalled its Fruit Luau mix, which contains cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes, as well as cut honeydew, cut cantaloupe and cut pineapple products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The recalled fruit products were distributed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware between November 15 and December 1, 2019. More recall information can be found on the FDA website. This list will be updated as new information becomes available.

What is Salmonella?
Salmonella are a group of bacteria that can cause gastrointestinal illness and fever called salmonellosis. Most people infected with Salmonella will begin to develop symptoms 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness, salmonellosis, usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment.

Most people with salmonellosis develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. More severe cases of salmonellosis may include a high fever, aches, headaches, lethargy, a rash, blood in the urine or stool, and in some cases may become fatal.

Children younger than five, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe salmonellosis infections.

General Food Safety Tips for Restaurants and Retailers
Restaurants and retailers should always practice safe food handling and preparation measures. It is recommended that employees wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot, soapy water before and after handling food.

Regular frequent cleaning and sanitizing of food contact surfaces and utensils used in food preparation may help to minimize the likelihood of cross-contamination.
Wash and sanitize display cases and refrigerators regularly.
Wash and sanitize cutting boards, surfaces, and utensils used to prepare, serve, or store food.
Wash hands with hot water and soap following the cleaning and sanitation process.
General Food Safety Tips for Consumers
People should consult their healthcare provider if they suspect that they have developed symptoms that resemble a Salmonella infection.

Consumers should follow these steps for preventing foodborne illness:

Wash the inside walls and shelves of the refrigerator, cutting boards and countertops, and utensils that may have contacted contaminated foods; then sanitize them with a solution of one tablespoon of chlorine bleach to one gallon of hot water; dry with a clean cloth or paper towel that has not been previously used.
Wash and sanitize surfaces used to serve or store potentially contaminated products.
Wash hands with warm water and soap following the cleaning and sanitation process.
Consumers can also submit a voluntarily report, a complaint, or adverse event (illness or serious allergic reaction) related to a food product.

Produce items should be rinsed in clean, running water without the use of cleaners or soaps. After washing, dry produce with a clean cloth towel or paper towel to further reduce bacteria that may be present on the surface.

Even if you do not plan to eat the skin, it is still important to wash produce first so dirt and bacteria are not transferred from the surface when peeling or cutting produce.

Scrub firm produce, such as melons and cucumbers, with a clean produce brush.

Previous Updates
December 11, 2019

According to CDC, there are currently 11 illnesses confirmed by Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) in Pennsylvania and Minnesota. The person from Minnesota traveled to New York at the time of infection. CDC reports only cases confirmed by WGS, and these numbers may differ from the numbers that states are investigating but are awaiting WGS confirmation to be included in the outbreak.

FDA has initiated an inspection at Tailor Cut Produce and is currently collecting records to support a traceback investigation. FDA will continue its investigation and provide updates as more information becomes available.

FDA and the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) are investigating an outbreak of illnesses caused by Salmonella Javiana in Pennsylvania. Epidemiologic and traceback evidence indicate that fruit mix with cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes from Tailor Cut Produce of North Brunswick, New Jersey, are a potential source of this outbreak. The firm recalled the fruit mix, called Fruit Luau, as well as cut honeydew, cut cantaloupe and cut pineapple products on December 7.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) reports that it is investigating 33 laboratory-confirmed illnesses of Salmonella at four healthcare facilities in southeast Pennsylvania. Salmonella Javiana has been identified among cases at three of four facilities. According to the Pennsylvania DOH the epidemiologic evidence collected thus far indicates that the Fruit Luau fruit mix (which contains cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes) from Tailor Cut Produce is a potential source of the illnesses. The state’s review of invoices shows that a common food eaten by many case patients was this fruit mix.

FDA has activated a team to coordinate its outbreak investigation. On December 6, 2019, the FDA and the Pennsylvania DOH shared the results of the investigation thus far with the firm, and the firm’s leadership stated that they would work with FDA to implement a recall of the products. On December 7, Tailor Cut Produce announced a recall.

FDA will continue its investigation and provide updates as more information becomes available.

Company Announcement
As part of a multi-state recall due to the potential risk of Listeria monocytogenes, Meijer – in conjunction with Almark Foods – is announcing a voluntary recall of frozen hard-boiled egg products used on two salad bars at two stores in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Meijer is recalling the following products:

UPC – 79379900993 – DICED EGGS FROZEN 5 LB

The multi-state recall involves product potentially sold between Oct. 25, 2019 and Dec. 23, 2019 at two stores in Grand Rapids, Mich. There have been no illnesses reported to date. Store locations are:

The Knapps Corner Meijer at 1997 East Beltline Road in Grand Rapids, Mich.
The Rockford Meijer at 2799 10 Mile Road NE in Rockford, Mich.
Almark Foods issued the initial recall, in cooperation with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, out of an abundance of caution to its customers. Meijer used the hard-boiled egg ingredients on its salad bars which originated from Almark Foods.

Consumers who have purchased this product should throw it away or return the product to the nearest Meijer store for a full refund. Consumers with questions regarding this recall should contact Meijer at 800-543-3704, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Consumers with questions or concerns about their health should contact their physician.

Candida Auris: The silent superbug that’s already too late to stop – full documentary
Tuesday, April 16, 2019 by: Mike Adams
https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-04-16-candida-auris-the-silent-superbug-thats-already-too-late-to-stop.html

(Natural News) Candida auris is a “silent superbug” that’s already spreading across U.S. hospitals and nursing homes. The CDC has reported hundreds of infections across seven states, and is tracking over 1,000 “colonizations” where the fungal strain has infected human carriers who spread it to others.

Notably, the CDC refuses to name which hospitals have been infected by Candida auris, even as it admits infections are spreading across Illinois, New Jersey and New York. (See the Natural News Medical Alert article here for full details and CDC maps.)

It has also spread across the world, with hospital-related infections documented in several countries. The following map is published by the CDC:

Candida-Auris-CDC-nations

According to the CDC, people infected with Candida auris have a 50% chance of being killed by it within 90 days.

There is no vaccine, which is probably why the corporate media almost never mentions this superbug. Even worse, this superbug fungal strain is a product of chemical agriculture, and as long as the agricultural giants continue to inundate crops with fungicides, more fungal superbugs are going to emerge and threaten humanity.

We’ve produced and posted a full 46-minute Counterthink episode that documents this emerging threat to humanity. Watch it exclusively at Brighteon.com, the YouTube alternative for free speech videos on science, medicine, health and more.

In 2014: The US is an oligarchy, study concludes

The US is an oligarchy, study concludes
Report by researchers from Princeton and Northwestern universities suggests that US political system serves special interest organisations, instead of voters
The Capitol building in Washington DC

By Zachary Davies Boren
10:58AM BST 16 Apr 2014

The US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country’s citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded.

The report, entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens, used extensive policy data collected from between the years of 1981 and 2002 to empirically determine the state of the US political system.

After sifting through nearly 1,800 US policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile) and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the United States is dominated by its economic elite.

The peer-reviewed study, which will be taught at these universities in September, says: “The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”

Researchers concluded that US government policies rarely align with the the preferences of the majority of Americans, but do favour special interests and lobbying organisations: “When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organised interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it.”

The positions of powerful interest groups are “not substantially correlated with the preferences of average citizens”, but the politics of average Americans and affluent Americans sometimes does overlap. This is merely a coincidence, the report says, with the the interests of the average American being served almost exclusively when it also serves those of the richest 10 per cent.

The theory of “biased pluralism” that the Princeton and Northwestern researchers believe the US system fits holds that policy outcomes “tend to tilt towards the wishes of corporations and business and professional associations.”

The study comes in the wake of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, a controversial Supreme Court decision which allows wealthy donors to contribute to an unlimited number of political campaigns.

CrowdstrikeGate: A Massive Deep State Scandal That Will Collapse the Democrat Party

“The impeachment hoax
was initiated because of
Trump’s determination
to fully expose
CROWDSTRIKEgate.
That radioactive scandal
perpetrated by CrowdStrike
and the DNC leadership
is so dangerous to the
Democrat Party they
desperately started the
impeachment inquiry.
Now Trump really wants
that epic fraud investigated
because his presidency
depends upon it.”
— Intelligence Analyst & Former U.S. Military Officer
State of the Nation

Truly, it doesn’t get anymore explosive than CROWDSTRIKEgate!

CONFIRMED: DNC paid the ‘Russian’ founder of CrowdStrike to hack its server so it could be blamed on Russia!
What, pray tell, could be more radioactive than the fact that CrowdStrike was specifically hired by the Democrat National Committee to plant fake evidence on the DNC servers. The cyber-perps deceitfully used Russian digital signatures in order to falsely blame Russia for the election hack that never even occurred … except that it did and it was actually conducted by CrowdStrike.

Screen-Shot-2019-10-17-at-6-31-00-AM

Wow … what a tangled web, indeed … and incredibly reckless scandal ! ! !

How did Deep State ever think they could get away with such a conspiratorial hoax?

Especially with President Trump using his Twitter account to expose the entire CIA-directed black operation?

“Fancy Bear”
____________________________________________________________________________
Why Crowdstrike’s Russian Hacking Story Fell Apart – Say Hello to Fancy Bear
____________________________________________________________________________
This is exactly why they named the CrowdStrike-implemented psyop “Fancy Bear”.

The real perps behind the non-existent Russian hack wanted the American people to believe that CrowdStrike was a Russian bear-killing cybersecurity firm, which they aren’t.

Let’s be clear, the single best way for Trump to completely exonerate himself of even the slightest appearance of ‘Russian collusion’ is to prove that the Democrats falsified the evidence in the first place, WHICH THEY DID.

Why else would the DNC continually refuse to hand over their severs to the FBI so that the necessary forensic analysis could be conducted?!?!

Why else would the CEO of CrowdStrike — Dmitri Alperovitch — the “Russian-born American computer security industry executive … and co-founder and chief technology officer of CrowdStrike” name his bogus hacker-hunting operation “Fancy Bear” except to implicate the Kremlin for a hack that CrowdStrike pulled off?

CROWDSTRIKEgate
Yes, the back story to this unparalleled Democrat scandal is long and complicated, convoluted and full of intrigue. The following exposé breaks it all down in a way that every voter ought to understand before November 3, 2020.
______________________________________________________________________________
DNC Russian Hackers Found!
______________________________________________________________________________
Let’s face it: the Democrats will do anything to overturn the 2016 election result. These serial traitors to the Republic are so overwhelmed by Trump derangement syndrome that they will use any means required to take down Trump.

Well, CROWDSTRIKEgate shows just how far these hopelessly crazy communists will go.

When even a casual observer takes a closer look at all the evidence — scientific, circumstantial and anecdotal — it’s clear that the Democrats contrived an extraordinarily absurd and fictitious story to launch this scandal. In other words, “Fancy Bear” is really “Fanciful Bear”.

Whereas Dimity Alperovitch is really Russian by birth and ancestry, he was employed by the C.I.A and NSA to carry out espionage and counterespionage operations similar to their Russian hack op. And, here’s the indisputable timeline that proves it:
Fancy Frauds, Bogus Bears & Malware Mimicry?

IMPEACHMENTgate
Which brings us to the true reasons behind IMPEACHMENTgate. See IMPEACHMENTgate: The Scandal Is Much Worse & Plot Much Thicker Than Anyone Knows

The Democrats know that Trump is not only on to them, he’s on a mission to expose the entire treasonous scandal.

What that really means is that it’s all-out war between Team Trump and Deep State.

See:
Deep State Attempts Yet Another Coup in Broad Daylight, Evidence Proves Treason and a Complex Criminal Conspiracy

This is it folks. The final battle in American politics is being played out between now and Election Day 2020.

What’s at stake is EVERYTHING … for both sides of the political aisle. It’s a winner take all proposition.

Try THIS on Your Car and You’ll Never Need to Wax it Again! (See Video)
That’s why the Democrats concocted out of thin air the patently false allegations that were used to trigger the impeachment inquiry.

That’s why the fake UKRAINEgate was immediately blown up by the CIA’s Mockingbird Media and has not relented despite the lack of any evidence whatsoever. As follows:

UKRAINEgate: CIA black op, Deep State psyop, Democrat coup, MSM distraction, Israeli espionage, Trump sting, or all 6?

Not only that, but seditious co-conspirators Pelosi and Schiff have even refused to present the so-called CIA ‘whistleblower’ whose ridiculous report was obviously fabricated to trigger the impeachment process.

See:
SOFT COUP IN PROGRESS: Deep State Democrats Staged Fake ‘Whistleblower’ Complaint to Orchestrate Impeachment Hoax
________________________________________________________________________________

KEY POINT: As always, there’s a much deeper and broader back story to CROWDSTRIKEgate. This particular video accurately connects so many dots it boggles the mind:
Super-sleuth drops more radioactive intel in 22 minutes than the entire Alt Media does in a month!
________________________________________________________________________________

5970-F7-B4-A58-A-45-C9-83-AC-6513718-B3-D81

Take a close look at this CrowdStrike piece taken from their website. Notice the heavy anti-Russian meming as well as the crucial dates. Everything points to a joint CIA-Madison Ave venture to further smear Russia.

Conclusion
Both Deep State and the entire Democrat Party are in extreme desperation mode.

Yes, they are facing the multifarious consequences associated with:
UKRAINEgate
BIDENgate
IMPEACHMENTgate
WHISTLEBLOWERgate,
but it’s really
CROWDSTRIKEgate
that has the highly explosive potential to destroy the thoroughly corrupt and criminal Democrat Party forever.

The stark reality is that, once the CrowdStrike crime wave is disclosed to the American people, the Democrats are history—FOR REAL!

This is precisely why Deep State has put the craziest of all the crazies — Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer, Newsom, DeBlasio, etc. in charge of their insane asylum at this pivotal point during their historic crash and burn. These bad actors (very bad by the looks of Shifty Schiff in every interview) were specifically chosen because of how profoundly compromised each of them is.

Try This Egyptian Copper Secret! You’ll Never Believe What It Does Until You See the Blood Video!
Just how compromised?

This compromised:
PEDOGATE: Pandora’s Box Has Been Opened for Deep State and the C.I.A.

Let’s also take a much closer look at Nasty Nancy’s well-hidden history here: COUP-IN-PROGRESS: Pelosi, the Mafia and the Black Nobility.

Bottom Line: This rapidly intensifying 3rd Millennium “War of the Titans” is gonna get hot—hotter, in fact, than either the Civil War or American Revolution.

Therefore, the best thing the Patriot Movement can do is to disseminate this incriminating information so that the body politic is totally saturated with it. The more folks who are informed, the greater the likelihood that the collective consciousness will expand sufficiently to prevent a national cataclysm. Wide circulation of this critical material can de-escalate this decisive conflict as much as anything.

A LOT of prayer for the protection and focused intention for the continuity of the American Republic would greatly help as well.

“The USSR experimented on humans and animals with 5G in 1977, 1972 and 1997. A proper military experiment. The humans suffered metabolic problems, ie everything started to fall apart, blood problems, immune system dysfunction, severe medical and neurological problems. With animals, since they were able to dissect them, they found the bone marrow was suffering (which produces the immune system), respiration damaged, enzyme activity damaged, nuclear dna damaged, and the total exposure time was only 15 hours over 60 days. Roughly 15 minutes a day and the levels were not high. Not as high as you are going to get in a classroom.” …. Dr Barrie Trower

Note: Since posting this people in NZ are asking what can we do? Some suggestions … visit the nz site http://www.5g.org.nz/ … they have addressed what we can do in NZ. Also Mark Steele from the video, he has a website https://www.saveusnow.org.uk/ (save us now) & all the detail on how he fought his council in Gateshead in court & won (article coming on that). Note there is a campaign to discredit him & his work which should tell you something. Please ignore the debunking links you will see when you search. If there were anything dodgy with this man Dr Barrie Trower would not be teaming up with him for this video interview. Also visit Josh del Sol’s site, if you go to https://takebackyourpower.net/ you will find his doco of the same name, an excellent although shocking intro to the shonky science we’re dished out on the so called ‘safety’ of emfs/wi-fi particularly relating to smart meters (if you are new to this or have hitherto believed it’s all good, no problems). When you land at that site you will be alerted to an upcoming online series of teaching (free at the viewing times, you can also purchase these for your own reference later). It screens in late August. Lastly Dr Trower has many other interviews on Youtube that will give you insight into how wi-fi is affecting us already. Particularly our children. 5G he illustrates is a military grade weapon they used for crowd control. Fact. (Here is a 14 minute clip with the essentials from him). EWR

With animals, since they were able to dissect them, they found the bone marrow was suffering (which produces the immune system), respiration damaged, enzyme activity damaged, nuclear dna damaged, and the total exposure time was only 15 hours over 60 days. Roughly 15 minutes a day and the levels were not high. Not as high as you are going to get in a classroom.” …. Dr Barrie Trower

This is such important information here I’ve transcribed half of the video in note form (note particularly there are some words that may not be spelled correctly, you will need to listen for yourself). Transcription below.
Here is some detail about how Dr Barrie Trower is someone we should be listening to about the dangers of wi-fi and in particular 5G.

Barrie Trower
 trained at the Governments Microwave Warfare establishment in 60’s
 worked for the Royal Navy and British Secret Service as a microwave weapons
expert
 helped de-brief spies trained in microwave warfare in the 70’s
 worked in the underwater bomb disposal unit which used microwaves
 has a degree in physics (specialising in microwaves), a research degree and a
diploma in human physiology. SOURCE

Barrie Trower has come out of retirement to blow the whistle & likewise Mark Steele who (in Barrie’s words) ‘has stuck his head above the parapet‘ to warn people of what is coming. He has taken on the fight & won in Gateshead UK where 5G has been rolled out since 2011. This interview will shock you. EWR

TRANSCRIPT:
(VIDEO-Barrie Trower and Mark Steele on 5G (2019)
350 environmental organizations from 96 countries have said, stop 5G.

WHO advisor came out & said stop 5G

Early on in its development they noted it kills birds, cattle, tadpoles & insects.

California fire fighters have an exemption from 5G because of dangers to their health.

A new weapon they have developed that is stronger than 5G was tested on Special Forces & caused them to drop to their knees.

A Professor of Medicine has said nature has no defense against 5G.

5G will affect our eyes … cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and kidney problems.

Another Professor has said 5G on lamp posts will cause insect Armageddon because they hover around lamp posts. They won’t survive.

5G has to be compliant because it has to be linked as it has been in other countries, to all radar systems, wi-fi, smart meters, hospital equipment … the internet of things… all have to be compatible. So not just getting 5G but all the other Gs and wi-fi.

The calculations for 5G are time averaged… the data is around a 100x greater than 4G.

The roll out already started in Vienna, the unsuspecting people immediately suffered from nosebleeds, cardiac problems, chest pains, fatigue, dizziness, vomiting in fact all of the symptoms of microwave sickness that Barrie Trower has known since 1932.

The USSR experimented on humans and animals with 5G in 1977, 1972 and 1997. A proper military experiment. The humans suffered metabolic problems, ie everything started to fall apart, blood problems, immune system dysfunction, severe medical and neurological problems. With animals, since they were able to dissect them, they found the bone marrow was suffering (which produces the immune system), respiration damaged, enzyme activity damaged, nuclear dna damaged, and the total exposure time was only 15 hours over 60 days. Roughly 15 minutes a day and the levels were not high. Not as high as you are going to get in a classroom.

So it has been used as a weapon, and it has been tested experimentally on animals and humans. So yes it is definitely going to make you ill.

Has to have megahertz frequencies to comply with other transmitters & receivers. Also in other countries it has to have the low gigahertz frequencies.

In some countries you have as many as 22 different frequencies when it’s fully functional because it has to comply with all of the other things. It will be added to wi-fi 2,3,4G, smart meters. Its compliance with smart meters is actually quite frightening because each smart meter has to have two transmitters. One low frequency to go into the house & talk to the fridge and the telly etc and one to reach the main transmitter. Each house may have up to 15 appliances. Each small group of houses, goes from 500-5000 houses, in a mesh. When look at the maths… like a little group of tower blocks on a big estate, you can have as many as 5000 smart meters, two transmitters for each smart meters, so you have ten thousand smart meters in a small area transmitting. Each of them (15 per house) so in one reasonably sized council estate can have up to 150,000 transmitters. They are producing the 5G wave forms and wi-fi, 2.4 gigs which is a known weapons frequency. It is known in the military & published, Stanford Institute Research California, did their own experiments and said the two most dangerous frequencies for living cellular structures which is all of nature, trees, animals, insects, humans, is the wi-fi frequency and .95 gigs … a Doctor with 22 years experience in WHO cancer dept. has said that all of this will cause cancer. No question.

5 Gigahertz isn’t 5G, it is a telecom signal frequency. Shows the deceit of these people. It is capable of spying, on every device in your home.

5G has already been here for many years. Rolled out in Gateshead in 2011 & 12. Mark didn’t know until Sept 2016 when LED … the architecture, the equipment 5G’s been attached to is LED streetlights. They’re also part of a weapons system … post modulated, terahertz range lights can be extremely hazardous. The blue phospha coating … professor John O’Hagan has stated these lights are a risk, a risk to biology, a risk to children, a risk to eye sight etc. This is Public Health England. You have American Medical Assn stating the same, Anzi (?) stating the same, and Shia (?) the emerging risk team in Europe stating that flicker, post modulation on these LED street lights is risky. Ask yourself, why are your local authorities at speed, rushing this technology out on top of you when there’s already been identified a double increase in prostrate cancer from the exposure to these blue light systems, phospha coated blue light systems, so what’s going on? These councils are totally disregarding this. Regulatory bodies we pay to protect are still rolling them out. They’re on the motorways. Children are being born today that by the time they’re 25 they won’t be able to see. That’s because the exposure to this type of radiation, non ionized radiation, the secretary of state has a duty of care he’s totally ignoring. The plan is to make sure these people are seen in a court of law to bring them to justice.

This brings you to half way through the video (32 mins in).

The American flag has become a symbol of resistance against China in the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, prominently waved throughout the city this past weekend as police fired tear gas and rubber bullets into the peaceful crowds.
Millions of Hong Kong residents have participated in rallies since early June against a bill proposed in the city’s legislature that would have allowed China to extradite anyone present in Hong Kong by accusing him or her of breaking Chinese law. Under the “One Country, Two Systems” policy China agreed to when the U.K. handed Hong Kong over in 1997, Hong Kong must abandon any claims to sovereignty in exchange for China not imposing communist laws on the city. The protesters objected that the extradition law would violate that policy.

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam claimed the bill was “dead” this month, but protesters astutely noted that lawmakers had tabled the bill, allowing them to revive it any time. Protesters are demanding that the Legislative Council withdraw the bill entirely.

Protests this weekend were not about the bill, but against gang violence towards protesters last week. Pro-democracy advocates congregated last week in northern Yuen Long, a rural area outside of the central city, to protest the bill. Following the protest, an estimated 100 white-clad thugs surrounded the peaceful crowds moving into the Yuen Long Mass Transit Rail (MTR) station, beating them with metal rods and bamboo sticks. Following the mob attack, 45 people were hospitalized and, despite the dozens of attackers, little more than ten people arrested.

Police have since confirmed that some in the crowd had ties to Hong Kong’s triads, or organized crime groups. Protesters in Yuen Long this weekend accused police of collaborating with the protesters, citing videos showing officers calmly chatting with some of the mob.

As Hong Kong police denied the protesters a permit to march, they attacked the crowd despite its peaceful nature, using tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse them. Journalists on the ground noted that the protesters appeared unarmed and did not move against the police when the attacks began. Video circulating on social media appeared to show elderly residents of a Yuen Long nursing home coughing and choking on tear gas seeping through the windows, angering many in Hong Kong.

Police also arrested Max Chung, the pro-democracy activist who initially requested a permit for the march. Police denied the permit despite the fact that, unlike previous protests, it was not exclusively against the Hong Kong government, but against the triads who attacked the protesters.

Protests continued Sunday despite the violence in Yuen Long on Saturday, this time within the Hong Kong city center. Protesters also waved American flags there. Some carried signs reading “We need the 2nd Amendment” and “President Trump, please liberate Hong Kong”:

“We hope the U.S. and other nations will be able to help Hong Kong fight against Communist China’s policies,” a protester identified as Kelvin Wong told Bloomberg News in remarks published on July 15. “We need human rights, democracy, and freedom. These are the same values we share with the U.S. These are universal values. Now we are resisting Communist China, which doesn’t like these values but also interferes with Hong Kong.”

Wong emphasized that, despite claims from Beijing, they “are not influenced by foreign powers.”

Another protester, Wildy Chan, told the Hong Kong Free Press that same week that he was waving a U.S. flag to urge America to act in support of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement. Chan stated that he, in particular, supported the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, a bill Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) introduced, which, if passed, would facilitate visas to Hong Kong residents to escape communist China if necessary and require the State Department to submit an annual report evaluating if “Hong Kong is sufficiently autonomous to justify special treatment by the United States for bilateral agreements and programs.”

China has dismissed the Hong Kong protest movement as an attempt by the United States to destabilize China’s economy, even given the minimal commentary on Hong Kong from the White House. President Donald Trump went as far as to recently compliment Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping, stating that he has “acted responsibly” in response to protests.

“Judging from what was on the media, we see clear signs of foreign manipulation, orchestration and even organization in the relevant violent incidents,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said last week following Trump’s positive comments. “I hope the US will answer this question honestly and clearly: what role did the US play in the recent incidents in Hong Kong and what is your purpose behind it?”

“Though lacking self-knowledge, the US, I believe, should at least know one thing. Hong Kong belongs to China, and China does not allow any foreign interference in Hong Kong affairs. Nor will we allow any foreign forces to mess up Hong Kong,” Hua concluded. “We advise the US to withdraw its dirty hands from Hong Kong as soon as possible.”

EPIC BACKFIRE: Angry migrants STORM Texas border crossing, injure agents, force port of entry CLOSURE

EPIC BACKFIRE: Angry migrants STORM Texas border crossing, injure agents, force port of entry CLOSURE

EPIC BACKFIRE: Angry migrants STORM Texas border crossing, injure agents, force port of entry CLOSURE

We have a saying in Texas that goes “don’t mess with Texas.” (A lot of our sayings have our name in them.) But people continue to try to mess with Texas anyway. And on Friday, an angry mob of “migrants” attempted to cross into this country illegally by basically attacking a border patrol guarded port of entry to the United States on our fine state’s southern border.

The geniuses caused what is one of this country’s biggest ports of entry to CLOSE as a result. Brilliant.

Around 4 a.m., officials said in a press release, around 50 individuals rushed the Customs and Border Protection at Pharr International Bridge and clashed with agents. The group attempted to overwhelm officials by organizing into three “waves” for the rush attack.

“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier,” said Customs and Border Protection in the release.

CBS-4 in Harlingen, near Brownsville (about 45 miles away from the bridge), reports:

Several males in the group physically pushed through the barriers and, when confronted by CBP, the individuals began assaulting officers and attempted to grab the officers’ protective devices.

Agents deployed tear gas and pepperball launching systems in efforts to stop the group.

The result? A temporary closing of one of the busiest points of access in the whole dang country. Smart move, dummies.

It’s a crisis. An emergency. Not merely because of conditions at detention facilities that are overwhelmed by the mass illegal immigration, but because of the emboldened, increasingly defiant and entitled “migrant” population that watch the news and hear Democrats telling them they have the right to be here, without document, without entering legally, and without restriction.

Glyphosate found in popular brands of beer and wine, including organic

Glyphosate found in popular brands of beer and wine, including organic
by: Lori Alton, staff writer | May 24, 2019

https://www.naturalhealth365.com/glyphosate-found-in-wine-2937.html

Glyphosate found in popular brands of beer and wine, including organic(NaturalHealth365) It seems there’s no escaping glyphosate – the primary ingredient in Roundup, a weed killer manufacture by Monsanto. In 2017, the FDA raised alarm with a bombshell report acknowledging the presence of the pesticide in everyday foods such as breakfast cereals, honey and ice cream. Now, a new report from the California Public Interest Research Group (CalPIRG), reveals that glyphosate residue has also been found in a variety of common wines and beers sold in the United States – including those certified as organic.

As you probably know, scientific studies have linked glyphosate with a host of illnesses, including liver disease, reproductive damage and cancer. In fact, the chemical is currently the subject of thousands of state and federal lawsuits linking it to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Glyphosate found in organic beer and wine, research reveals
To conduct the test, researchers evaluated 20 samples of domestic and imported wines and beers, all sold in the United States. Sampled wine brands included conventionally-grown varieties such as Barefoot, Beringer, and Sutter Home.

And, yes, two organically grown wines, Frey and Inkarri Estates, were included.

In terms of beer, researchers looked at Coors, Corona, Heineken, Sam Adams, Stella Artois and Tsingtao. A pair of organic beers, Peak and Samuel Smith, were tested as well.

Disturbingly, all samples of the beverages contained glyphosate – albeit in varying levels.

Did you know? The liver is the most important detoxifying organ in the body. When the liver can’t effectively neutralize and dispose of toxins, they accumulate in the body. Two essential nutrients for healthy liver function are milk thistle and glutathione. These two ingredients – plus much more – are now available in an advanced liver support formula. Click here to learn more.

Sutter Home Merlot was the “high-ringer” for glyphosate found, with 51 parts per billion. Not far behind was Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon, with 42.6 ppb.

Among the beers, Tsingtao – with 49.7 ppb – was most contaminated. Budweiser, Coors, Corona and Miller had less glyphosate found, but many brands still averaged over 20 ppb.

And, while the organic beverages had the lowest levels of glyphosate, they were not devoid of the chemical – as one would expect.

Inkarri Malbec: Certified Organic had 5.2 ppb, Frey Organic Natural Wine contained 4.8 ppb, and Samuel Smith Organic Lager had 3.5 ppb. Only one sample – Peak Organic Beer – did not contain detectable amounts of glyphosate.

While these readings are all below the EPA’s tolerance for glyphosate in beverages, the CalPIRG authors point out that even infinitesimal amounts of glyphosate may be hazardous. In one study, as little as one part per trillion of glyphosate was capable of stimulating the growth of breast cancer cells and disrupting the endocrine system.

In addition, ingestion of amounts as small as 0.1 ppb can destroy beneficial gut bacteria, thereby disrupting the balance of the all-important gut microbiome.

Natural health advocates call for total ban on glyphosate
Roundup – the most commonly used agricultural chemical in the world – is currently heavily sprayed on food crops in the United States, including wheat, soybeans and corn.

The development of Roundup Ready seeds – GMO seeds engineered specifically for use with glyphosate – has caused use of the pesticide to skyrocket in recent decades. For example, the U.S. applied close to 275 million pounds of glyphosate in 2016, compared to less than 10 million pounds in 1992.

Although glyphosate was originally billed as a ‘healthy alternative’ to more dangerous pesticides, a growing body of research is drawing attention to the health risks. Currently, many natural health advocates and experts – including CalPIRG, who authored the report – call for the banning of glyphosate until/unless it can be proven safe.

Of course, many natural health experts, physicians and researchers maintain that “glyphosate safety” is the very epitome of an oxymoron, along the lines of such famous examples as “jumbo shrimp.”

In 2015, the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as a probable carcinogen – and went on record as saying that the chemical could pose “significant risks” to human health. In 2017, the state of California agreed, officially listing the pesticide as a likely carcinogen as well.

And some California communities have completely banned the use of glyphosate-based pesticides on city property. No doubt, the growing backlash against glyphosate appears to be reflected in the courts.

Last year, a California jury ruled that Monsanto pay $289 million to a man dying of cancer, who said his illness resulted from repeated exposure to glyphosate in his job as a groundskeeper.

Use as a weed killer and drying agent allows glyphosate to enter food and drink
It’s really not much of a stretch to see how glyphosate enters foods made from conventionally-grown crops.

Roundup is routinely sprayed on agricultural fields, including on barley and wheat crops used in brewing, and in vineyards that yield grapes for wine. In addition to being used to kill weeds, glyphosate is sometimes used as a preharvest “dessicant,” or drying agent – and is sprayed directly on plants!

In addition, contamination can occur from water used to irrigate fields. Although we rarely hear about the issue of toxic water being used on our food supply.

Glyphosate easily enters waterways, runoffs, rivers and streams. In one study, glyphosate was found in 70 percent of rainwater samples tested.

Other studies detected glyphosate in several Midwestern streams at the height of the growing season. But, organic contamination is harder to explain – as organic brewers and vintners are prohibited from using glyphosate.

But possible culprits could include overspray from neighboring farms, toxic water supplies and contamination from airborne drift – which can occur over several hundred feet.

And, because glyphosate residue can linger in soil and water for years, contamination can occur in organic fields which have been converted from conventional farming.

Shocking fact: There are currently no safety limits for glyphosate in beer and wine
CalPIRG recommended that the United States follow the lead of countries such as France – and American communities such as Irvine, California – and outlaw glyphosate outright. Click here to sign the CalPIRG petition calling for a ban on glyphosate.

At the very least, CalPIRG asks that food tolerance levels for glyphosate be reconsidered – and that the EPA set limits for beer and wine (currently, safety limits for these beverages are non-existent. Also, items should be tested by the USDA for glyphosate before they appear in stores – not after the fact.

In addition, the report urged growers to stop spraying glyphosate on and near fields and between vines – and instead explore alternate methods of weed control, such as ground cover. To prevent cross-contamination of organic fields, there should be a wide buffer between these and neighboring conventional fields.

Health tip: If you still want to enjoy wine, but want a safer option, listen to Jonathan Landsman’s NaturalHealth365 podcast: “The Wine Industry Exposed.”

Continue to remind stores, breweries and vineyards in your area to look for sustainable ways to grow produce – and, as always, buy organic beers and wines. While not always free of glyphosate, these to contain much smaller amounts.

According to CalPIRG representative Laura Deehan, it is “incredibly difficult to avoid the troubling reality that consumers will likely drink glyphosate at every happy hour and backyard barbecue around the country.”

Glyphosate, warns Deehan, could prove a “true risk” to many Americans’ health.

It is up to us to try to stop the “horror show” of skyrocketing glyphosate use – and we can do so by working together to ensure that environmental agencies do their jobs – and that corporations such as Monsanto are held accountable for their actions.
