CORONAVIRUS Precautionary Measures and Health Tips
The Coronavirus Coach
The rapidly unfolding coronavirus pandemic should not be underestimated. Given what is known thus far, this highly contagious virus ought to be taken seriously by everyone. Hence, every person on the planet is encouraged to get their house in order (especially the medicine cabinet) so that they are ready for any eventuality.

It’s always best to take these proven preventive measures sooner than later where it concerns any type of viral infection. By doing so, even the various coronavirus infections can be avoided. Folks who can sequester themselves in their home offices and/or significantly reduce their exposure to public places always fare much better. “Catching the corona” is by no means a foregone conclusion for any individual.

List of Basic Things To Do
First, start to eat right (LOTs of garlic and ginger and turmeric and curried foods). Lean toward hot soups, stews and broths particularly at dinner time for the rest of the flu season. Avoid cold foods from the fridge especially yoghurt, sandwich spreads and cold drinks. Add just a little boiling water to quickly warm up juices as well as nut or seed milks. Frozen foods like ice cream are strictly forbidden. Cook all vegetables much softer than usual. Best to go vegan, if possible; otherwise, all animal meats ought to be very well cooked and eaten infrequently.

Drink Flu Tea, especially during the cold season (the essential ingredients are ginger, cayenne pepper, lemon and honey but don’t heat the lemon or the honey–add them after the fresh ginger tea is brewed). Also drink plenty of warm fluids, specifically herbal teas that are decongestants and expectorants. Herbal teas that have antimicrobial and immune-stimulating properties are important when viral infection symptoms are present.

Be regular about replenishing the diminished intestinal flora with probiotics; beverage and food-based forms are much preferred to nutraceuticals (e.g. capsules). For those with lactose intolerance and/or casein allergies, acquire some coconut, cashew or almond yogurt or kefir (let these warm up first before eating). Also, consider probiotic rectal implants when significant flora depletion is suspected.

Be sure to stay away from mucus-producing foods and beverages. Avoid dairy in particular (especially cheese, milk and ice cream). Also avoid wheat, white sugar, red meat, eggs, soy, alcohol, artificially sweetened sodas, desserts in general, etc. This is a great time to minimize the intake of processed foods, packaged food, canned food, frozen food and especially junk food and fast food. “Corporate food” in supermarkets ought to be reduced; fresh produce, whole grains, organic ingredients, etc. are much healthier choices. The shorter the distance from farm to table the better.

If restaurant food cannot be avoided, be careful to only order the most cooked items on the menu. Raw foods and dairy products are quite exposed to environmental pathogens as well as highly vulnerable to kitchen mismanagement practices and other types of contamination. Don’t eat out unless you must. And, go organic, fresh, locally-grown and what’s in season IN YOUR OWN KITCHEN. Remember: “The cure is in the kitchen.”

Start to transition your diet from acidifying foods to alkalizing foods so that you move to approx. 75% alkaline and 25% acidic. Especially cut down on constipating foods, beverages and nutraceuticals such as mineral supplements with too much Iron.

Regular Exercise and Stretching, Power Walking and Rebounding, Hatha Yoga and Pilates, Tai chi and Qigong are all great to do. Get as much exposure to Sunlight as possible for natural Vitamin D production. (Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants so the coronavirus doesn’t like it). A 20 to 30 minute aerobic walk in nature is the single best way to cleanse the entire lymphatic system—A MUST![1] Don’t power walk outside when the skies are heavily chemtrailed; you’ll feel the health consequences.

The respiratory system must be clear and clean, strong and efficient since this virus targets the mucus membranes in the lungs and sinuses. Use a Neti Pot regularly during this flu season with 1/4 tsp of sea salt dissolved in body-temperature distilled water. Have a saline nasal rinse kit on hand such as NEILMED’S SINUS RINSE. Breathwork as simple as daily deep breathing outside in the fresh air is highly recommended; so are certain pranayama practices. Coherent breathing is particularly effective in activating the body’s natural immune response (See this video link).

Try to sleep well between 10:00 PM and 4:00 AM every night. Keep all technology out of the bedroom including smartphones and TVs. Remove all light sources, cover the windows, and use an air purifier that generates white noise to cover up distracting night-time sounds.

Change all IT devices in the home from wireless and WiFi to wired connections. Even keyboards and mice ought to be hardwired. Those living or working in a 5G environment ought to eliminate all WiFi completely.

Use wired landline phones whenever possible, NOT smartphones. There are also free Internet-based phone lines available that are easily hardwired. Replace the smartphone with an old-fashioned 4G flip phone. (Wuhan City, China was designated a special “5G Demonstration Zone” in the months prior to the coronavirus outbreak.)

Assemble a first aid kit with Colloidal Silver or Silver Hydrosol, Zinc supplements, Turmeric power or extract, Vitamin C and Vitamin D. Have a CAL-MAG-POT mineral supplement handy as well as some Selenium.

Acquire some anti-microbial Essential Oils (especially Oils of Oregano, Basil, Thyme & Peppermint). Get some Thieves essential oil and an atomizer to diffuse in the ambient environment, particularly the bedroom before sleep!

Also, have Olive Leaf extract, Pau d’Arco tea and an Echinacea & Goldenseal combo in the medicine cabinet. Buy some Grapefruit Seed extract, in liquid form, for all sorts of medicinal and body care applications.

Keep some food-grade Hydrogen Peroxide in the fridge in the event that low-dose HP therapy becomes necessary. Lugol’s Iodine is an absolute must when fighting any coronavirus, and especially effective for cleaning ALL produce.

Buy some BAC-HP homeopathic remedy to quickly subdue any bacterial infections that can weaken immunity (Purchase link HERE).

Have a good supply of Sea Salt available for gargling as well as Rock Salt for cooking. Pink Himalayan Salt is especially good for medicinal use.

Manuka Honey has strong antibacterial and antiviral properties as well as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.

Mouth care should include daily tongue scraping first thing in the morning followed by a Sovereign Silver mouth bath (hold 1 tbsp of silver in mouth for 20 to 30 minutes after teeth-brushing.[2] Then spit it out and thoroughly rinse mouth with water. For us health nuts, this can be followed with 15 t0 20 minutes of oil pulling by swishing around in the mouth 1 tbsp of either sesame or coconut oil. (The toothbrush should be washed with peppermint soap after each use and soaked in hydrogen peroxide at least once a week.)

For those who get really sick or really are ambitious, do a coffee enema.[3] There’s no quicker way to cleanse and refresh the liver blood. Moreover, performing a gallbladder flush / liver cleanse is an effective way to decongest the liver which then enhances the detoxification pathways during sickness, disease or injury.

Take a crash course in strengthening your immune system at this website: The Health Coach. For those who are chronically experiencing any form of immunosuppression, it’s imperative to do an immune system checkup. Particularly for those folks who have suffered from any of the Chronic Degenerative Diseases or Third Millennium Maladies or Alphabet Soup Ailments (e.g. CFS, EBV, AIDS, HIV, COPD, MS, ALS, Lupus, Lyme, Morgellons, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders), conducting a systematic immune system audit is a MUST. Whereas a strong immune response is the BEST defense against the coronavirus, even a compromised immune system can be quickly strengthened. For example, an infected root canal or cavitation site can be properly remediated thereby removing a constant burden from the immune system.[4]

Wash hands thoroughly for at least 20 to 30 seconds with an anti-microbial soap after being out in public but especially after handling all mail and parcels; raw food items; and food packaging such as boxes, cans, cartons, bottles, plastic containers as well as beverage cups.

Regularly sanitize all door handles and faucet handles as well as vehicle door handles and the steering wheel. Be sure to keep Ethyl Alcohol and Distilled White Vinegar on hand to disinfect contaminated surfaces, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms. There are individually wrapped hand wipes, which use alcohol to kill pathogenic micro-organisms on contact, to keep in the vehicle as well as hand sanitizers that do the same for the home and office.[5] . Above all, avoid touching your eyes, ears, nose or mouth (your head, for that matter) with unwashed hands.

This particular strain of coronavirus could develop into a serious situation (i.e. Pandemic) which will then require great vigilance and resolve. Be alert to any unusual symptoms in the home and workplace for yourself and others. Stay away from any individual who is presenting any type of flu symptoms.

Avoid all public places, when practical, for the rest of this flu season. If you are the family caregiver or a healthcare provider, take all the extra precautionary measures to avoid exposure (wear the right type of hospital-grade mask rated as N95 anti-viral, wash hands regularly with antimicrobial soap, keep a safe distance when appropriate, etc.). Disinfect, Sanitize and Cleanse whatever, wherever and whenever necessary. The kitchen and bathrooms need to be cleaner than ever since that’s where most illness and disease begin.

Don’t travel unnecessarily. Especially avoid airplanes, trains, buses, subways and cruise ships. At least for the rest of this flu season, minimize attendance at family gatherings, office parties, restaurants, etc. Skip all the conventions, conferences, forums, seminars and other large meeting places this year, particularly those with overnight stays.

Lastly, stay out of fear and live life with courage during these challenging times. Have faith in the Higher Power and know that everything always happens for the best. Pray for protection for yourself, your family and friends, and all of humanity.

Everyone, take good care!

The Fauci Lie – He Continues to Support Covertly Bill Gates & Should be Criminally Investigated – NOW!

There is nobody who deserves to be thrown in prison more than Anthony Fauci. He survives ONLY because the left wing press and Democrats will continue to support him as long as he keeps undermining Trump every chance he gets. There are plenty of specialists who are screaming that this guy is a fraud. The mainstream press will never allow such a word to be printed and YouTube will act like Nazi and burn any post that contradicts a word this criminal has to say.

Fortunately, it was only back in October 2013 when Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation donated $100,000 to Manchester University for a study to improve the experience of using condoms by using nano-carbons such as graphene or carbon nanotubes incorporated into the condom material to enhance their thermal conductivity. That has been their real agenda – reduce population growth which is totally inconsistent with their demand to vaccinate the entire world. There were those who wanted Manchester to ask the Gates for financial support. Perhaps they will celebrate the day they did not.

A team of researchers from The University of Manchester, Salford Royal and Res Consortium, have shown that a significant proportion of people in the UK- over 25% – is likely to have been infected already by the COVID-19 virus. They have concluded that Gates’ vaccine is not necessary. They have stated that while social distancing helped, the critical fact was the

In other words, the very doctors who came out and YouTube Removed were correct. The virus is self-limiting in an of itself, which is what I have been stating from the outset. The virus would have peaked out by the Week of April 6th and that was from simply studying the cyclical life cycle of viruses.

It is TIME for a CRIMINAL investigation of Fauci!

Trump is disbanding his team on the virus and that include Fauci. It is hard to go against him for the Democrats will continue to raise him falsely as the savior of America along with Bill Gates. But in a NIH 2005 study, the found that “Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread.” Fauci has been rejecting the use of this and has been preaching the Gates vaccine solution. The report stated:

“We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.

Conclusion
Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. Favorable inhibition of virus spread was observed when the cells were either treated with chloroquine prior to or after SARS CoV infection. In addition, the indirect immunofluorescence assay described herein represents a simple and rapid method for screening SARS-CoV antiviral compounds.”

I have stated that my cousin caught from his wife who was a front-line nurse dealing with COVID-19 patients in New Jersey. He went to the hospital and after two days of administering the malaria drug, he was released and went home. It was 67 and overweight which was the typical risk factor for this virus.

It really would be a patriotic act for the Department of Justice to open a case on these conflicts of interests. If the public can be shown that this was a deliberate scare tactic used by Gates to launch his worldwide vaccine program when he control the entire health system as a monopoly, then this will help to restore the public confidence and get them to turn AGAINST any politician who has been supporting Gates.

Bill Gates Says his Vaccine is the Final Solution – But Why?

This COVID-19 is by no means even as bad a SARS. The death rate is confined to the elderly who die from the flu. So what is really going on here? All the data demonstrates that this is not a major threat to the world community. Nevertheless, it has been exploited and the real reason remains clouded in mystery. Some say it is to inject some vaccine that will sterilize much of the world to create his father’s goal of depopulation.

—As always, I suggest that readers go through my recent articles on the China epidemic (archive here). I can’t recapitulate all the relevant findings every time I write a new piece.

This article is a kind of summary of where I stand, at this moment. A rather crowded snapshot.

Judging from the history of epidemics that turned out to be duds—West Nile, bird flu, SARS, Swine Flu, and so on—and judging from my research on these frauds—I see no reason to jump the gun and say, “This one is different.”

Every time one of these threatening clouds passes across the sun, all sorts of people in both the mainstream and alternative press make dire predictions, ranging from “this looks like a global pandemic,” to “the virus is a bio-weapon and will kill millions,” to the ever-popular, “this is THE BIG ONE.”

And then, when the dust clears, and the dud is exposed, amnesia about having made those predictions sets in.

Now we have a variety of people claiming they know the Chinese coronavirus is a bio-weapon, for several different reasons. I have no cause to rail against these people. As far back as 1988, I documented astonishingly lax conditions in supposedly secure bio-research labs, and the distinct probability of all sorts of germs escaping. I devoted many pages in my book, AIDS INC., to a history of bio-war research, grotesque animal experiments, and incompetent safety precautions in labs. I have written about US companies and government-connected organizations sending bio-war materials to Saddam Hussein in the 1980s.

Proving that this Chinese coronavirus is a bio-weapon is a different matter. If, as proposed, there are peculiarities in the genetic sequence of the virus, and it has therefore been tinkered with by humans…well, perhaps that is correct. I don’t know. However, I have deeper and more basic suspicions about published genetic sequences of viruses, from which that assertion is derived. Meaning: I don’t automatically accept the published sequences as true or accurate or real.

For example, my most recent article included a very troubling interview that challenged the original isolation and identification of HIV—as in, did researchers ever really find that virus? If they didn’t, we would be looking at fraud on a mind-boggling level…and any so-called genetic sequencing of the virus would be impossible, except as gross error or fraud. If you can’t find the culprit and you don’t know what he looks like, how can you describe him?

To bolster this point—in past articles, I’ve detailed how, in the cases of SARS and 2009 Swine Flu, the purported viruses seemed to disappear. That is, they couldn’t be found in patients. Yet, reported case numbers of the “virus epidemics” continued to expand. One very real possibility looms: the researchers never actually found, located, isolated, and identified these viruses in the first place. Therefore, any published genetic sequences of these viruses were, to put in kindly, entirely irrelevant.

And therefore, to infer from those genetic sequences that such chimerical viruses were actually bio-weapons…well, that would be miles off the mark.

Many people would turn purple and apoplectic at the idea that published genetic sequences could be con jobs, hustles, and giant errors. But very early on, in the 1980s, I discovered how researchers will toe the official line, out of fear. Imagine a mainstream researcher contacting the World Health Organization, or a premier medical journal, and saying: “Your genetic roadmap of Virus X…I’m not getting the same result. My map is completely different from yours. I’m not even sure I’m sequencing a virus. Will you examine my finding? We need more independent work. What the hell is going on?” Here today, gone tomorrow. That researcher would suddenly find himself out in the cold in his underwear. No perks, no publisher, no job, no reputation. And he knows this UP FRONT. So he keeps his mouth shut and swallows his objections. For instance, in 1987, I had a highly respected virologist tell me he KNEW there was a serious problem in calling HIV the cause of AIDS, but he and his colleagues were going to “take a pass on this one.” He saw the political landscape. He knew there was a rig-job in progress. The human implications of naming a meaningless item as the cause of illness and death? Did he even pause and think about that? Regardless, he shrugged and turned his attention to other matters. An overarching rule: the researchers who disagree with the forced consensus don’t get published in “respected journals,” so their colleagues and the public never hear about them.

Moving on—THE VIRUS is a fake propaganda idea that has traditionally been used to cover up vast crimes and the destruction of human life in ways that have nothing to do with germs. THE VIRUS is one of the greatest cover stories ever invented. I’ve explained how propaganda about viruses is made to stand in for corporate and government crimes that make people sick and kill them: contaminated water supplies; lack of basic sanitation; giant toxic agricultural farms; industrial poison-pollution; hunger; starvation; protein-calorie malnutrition; fertile farm land stolen from native people by corporations and governments; toxic medical drugs and vaccines; and now, in Wuhan and other Chinese cities, unprecedented mixtures of toxic air pollution, causing lung damage. The basic theme is: DON’T LOOK AT ALL THOSE CRIMES, JUST FOCUS ON THE VIRUS AS THE ONLY PROBLEM. This is sheer invention.

Next: in fake epidemics, case numbers are always inflated by the devious use of categories that label and count people who aren’t sick, will not get sick, will only experience something on the order of mild flu, or who are only numbers in computer-modeled predictions.

I documented the astounding fraud perpetrated by the CDC in 2009, when the overwhelming percentage of tissue samples from so-called Swine Flu patients revealed they didn’t have ANY KIND OF FLU. And the CDC went on to estimate there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US in 2009.

The most widely used tests used to diagnose and label people as “case numbers of the virus” and “sick” and “infected” are inherently flawed. For different reasons, the antibody and PCR tests do NOT prove that people are ill or are going to become ill. This fact, of course, leaves a gaping hole in the assessments of “epidemics.” It also forces patients into toxic treatments they do not need. It puts a potent fearful diagnosis in their minds that is entirely wrong.

There is now a rush to develop a new vaccine against the Chinese coronavirus. I’ve warned readers that at least two of these vaccine technologies—DNA and RNA vaccines—are experimental and have never been openly licensed for use on the public. Therefore, the population of Earth—if these vaccines are deployed—will unknowingly step up to the plate in a vast guinea-pig test. DNA vaccines alter the genetic makeup of recipients PERMANENTLY, in unpredictable ways. RNA vaccines carry the admitted risk of causing auto-immune reactions. Basically, this means the body would attack itself. The vaccine is the hammer in this dangerous “epidemic” stage play. It is one of the extreme payoffs for having fomented fear and the desire to “obey authorities.”

In this “epidemic” and past similar instances, friends and colleagues have sent assessments up the flagpole which are far different from mine. They are still my friends and colleagues. I make no attempt to stir conflict among us. We agree on many vital issues. We will continue to agree.

All right—that’s my snapshot. This is where I stand, for the present, on the China coronavirus situation. Every point I’ve made, in broad strokes, in this article, is explained more fully in my recent articles.

I raise one more question for your serious consideration. If highly toxic pollution in the air, in Chinese cities, is causing deep lung damage, and if the Chinese government is covering that up with a story about a virus—what is now happening to the millions of Chinese people locked down, with nowhere to go, trapped in those cities—breathing the air?

P.S. Several readers have sent me significant emails stating that Wuhan is a global center of 5G technology and deployment. I have written about the health dangers of 5G. Is this yet another non-coronavirus vector for disease and damage? It would certainly not surprise me. I have not had the time to look into this thoroughly. For the present, at least, I leave the job to others.

Well, I thought I was through writing this piece, but I need to make another crucial point. As you can see from the list of crimes I mentioned above, where corporations and governments are making people sick and killing them—and then using the cover story of a virus to hide their crimes—illness and death can come and do come from multiple causes. However, the public finds it hard to accept and understand this. Most people would rather seek out THE ONE THING that is the explanation. There is a deep psychological need to discover THE ONE. That is a reason why THE VIRUS cover story works so well. IT is portrayed as the single cause and the single evil. It is the psychological magnet to which all sorts of particles attach. This addiction has to be conquered. And this paragraph is a short version of what would be an 800-page book on the subject.

(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.

Jimmy Carter: The U.S. Is an “Oligarchy With Unlimited Political Bribery”
Jon Schwarz
July 30 2015, 7:09 p.m.
https://theintercept.com/2015/07/30/jimmy-carter-u-s-oligarchy-unlimited-political-bribery/

Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday on the nationally syndicated radio show the Thom Hartmann Program that the United States is now an “oligarchy” in which “unlimited political bribery” has created “a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors.” Both Democrats and Republicans, Carter said, “look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves.”

Carter was responding to a question from Hartmann about recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing like Citizens United.

Transcript:

HARTMANN: Our Supreme Court has now said, “unlimited money in politics.” It seems like a violation of principles of democracy. … Your thoughts on that?

CARTER: It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. senators and congress members. So now we’ve just seen a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for themselves after the election’s over. … The incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody’s who’s already in Congress has a lot more to sell to an avid contributor than somebody who’s just a challenger.

I’ve added Carter’s statement to this list of politicians acknowledging that money controls politics. Please let me know if you have other good examples.

Nolte: Fox News Audience Grows as MSNBC, CNN Collapse Double Digits
JOHN NOLTE24 Jul 2019
https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/07/24/nolte-fox-news-audience-grows-msnbc-cnn-collapse-double-digits/

While Fox News grew its audience last week, CNN and MSNBC saw their audience flee by double digits.
Compared to this same week last year, the Fox News primetime audience grew by four percent, while MSNBC lost 15 percent of its audience, and the far-left CNN collapsed by a whopping 21 percent.

In total day viewers, Fox News grew by one percent, while MSNBC lost 15 percent of its viewers and CNNLOL lost a quarter of its viewers — a quarter! — a full 25 percent.
Here is the primetime total viewers breakdown for the week of July 15…
FOX: 2.55 million
MSNBC: 1.66 million
CNNLOL: 873,000

Fox News is not only attracting more primetime viewers than MSNBC and CNNLOL combined, even though Fox is already number one and appears to have no place to go but down, but is still growing its audience.

Meanwhile, CNNLOL, which has nowhere to go but up, still manages to go down. This fake news outlet is determined to prove there is a viewer number lower than zero.

CNNLOL, which has been in far-last place for years and has still lost viewers for years, is a five-alarm disaster, an unreliable conspiracy theory outlet that takes enormous pride in sinking its own ship — you know, if that’s what it takes to continue to deceive the public and encourage political violence.

Sidney Lumet’s classic movie Network (1976) revolves around a last-place network that brushes aside things like ethics, truth, morality, and decency as a means to increase its audience. No one could have ever imagined a news outlet like CNNLOL would someday come along and do the same even as its ratings hit all new lows week after week after week…

I’m starting to believe CNN chief Jeff Zucker is a brilliant right-wing plant hired by the late Roger Ailes to destroy CNNLOL in the most humiliating and permanent way imaginable.

As far as MSNBC, that network’s fall can be solely attributed to one thing: the debunking of the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax, which MSNBC, and most especially Russia Hoax Queen Rachel Maddow, went all-in on.

Once the Mueller Report proved there was no collusion and no obstruction, a whole lot of leftists felt betrayed and demoralized by a network that promised and promised and promised that Drumpf’s impeachment and arrest were right around the corner.

Here is the total day total viewers breakdown…
FOX: 1.385 million
MSNBC: 921,000
CNNLOL: 575,000

In primetime and in total day and in all of cable TV, Fox and MSNBC rank number one and two, respectively.

CNNLOL, however, was 11th in primetime and 7th in total day.

Things are so bad at CNN that a Discovery Channel spin-off network, Investigative Discovery, is attracting more primetime viewers.

In the all-important 25-54 age demo that sets advertising rates, everyone was down, but once again, MSNBC and CNNLOL were way, way down.

During primetime, Fox News slipped 11 percent, but MSNBC is down 33 percent, while CNN bottomed out with a 38 percent drop.

In total day, Fox again slipped just 11 percent, while MSNBC lot 37 percent of demo viewers and CNNLOL lost an incredible 42 percent.

Poor MSNBC… For a while, the openly left-wing outlet (that’s a compliment) was right on the heels of Fox News. Rachel Maddow and Sean Hannity were slugging it out for first place. But MSNBC, and Maddow, most especially, went way too far in gambling for a Big Win with the Mueller Report (which proved there was no collusion or obstruction).

Now MSNBC is a distant second place to Fox and Maddow is fighting for fourth place behind Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham.

The ratings collapse at CNN and MSNBC at least proves one thing: even Trump-hating leftists hate to be lied to and deceived.

Why is the U.S. government importing thousands of migrants from Ebola-stricken nations and distributing them across U.S. cities?

Image: Why is the U.S. government importing thousands of migrants from Ebola-stricken nations and distributing them across U.S. cities?

(Natural News) Health authorities have been warning the public about a new African ebola outbreak that they claim is on the verge of “leaping the border to other countries.” So why, then, are officials in the United States quietly importing — and distributing to communities all throughout America — potentially-infected migrants from these same high-risk areas?

InfoWars‘ Owen Shroyer recently attempted to get some answers about this, only to be forcibly removed from a makeshift processing center in San Antonio, Texas, where African migrants are, in fact, being dropped off before being loaded up in vans and shipped across the U.S. Watch the below video of Shroyer being flipped off, verbally-berated, and forced out of the building simply for trying to find out what’s going on, and why.

Even though Dew wasn’t able to get any clear answers about the situation, we do know that hundreds of illegal aliens from the Democratic Republic of Congo have already been brought into the U.S. under the cover of darkness – and many more are expected to arrive in the coming weeks.

Local news in San Antonio also reported on these incoming migrants, confirming based on information obtained from Border Patrol that another 200-300 asylum-seekers from both Congo and nearby Angola are headed to the U.S. in the coming days.

“We didn’t get a heads up,” stated Interim Assistant City Manager Dr. Collen Bridger about his city’s forced reception of these migrants.

Rob Dew and InfoWars crew physically, verbally assaulted by employees at Kimura Japanese restaurant
As Shroyer and his crew continued to seek answers about this unusual and highly disturbing situation taking place in San Antonio, they were physically and verbally assaulted by employees at Kimura, a Japanese restaurant located at 152 E. Pecan St. #102 in downtown San Antonio.

Watch the shocking video footage of the incident, which involved a Kimura waitress throwing chopsticks and Shroyer, as shared by Rob Dew on his Twitter page.

As usual, these deranged individuals at Kimura are heard accusing Shroyer of being “racist” simply for asking questions about why potentially ebola-infected individuals from Africa are being secretly brought into the U.S. and distributed across the country, without the knowledge or consent of the American people.

It’s further unclear who’s behind this illegal import of high-risk people, which is costing local charities “roughly $14,000 a week [for] bus tickets.”

The whole thing reeks of a planned invasion by the hidden movers and shakers who seem to be desperately trying to destabilize this country by unleashing a deadly ebola pandemic throughout North America – and at this point, there doesn’t appear to be any way to stop this from happening.

Despite being kicked out of a city building and falsely accused of “racism,” Shroyer was able to find few folks on the streets of San Antonio who agree that what’s going on with this continued import of Congolese and Angolan migrants; most think it is unacceptable and needs to be brought to light for public safety.

“Our government is trying to kill us off,” wrote one InfoWars commenter about the situation.

“They allow in ebola victims, antibiotic-resistant TB (tuberculosis) patients, diseases we had eradicated in this country, criminal illegals, and Islamic jihadists. If the ‘leaders’ cared about the American people, they wouldn’t do that.”

“Is it possible that the U.S. government actually wants to introduce disease vectors into the U.S. for the purpose of population control?” asked another. “Think about it…”

STOP eating or drinking ‘diet’ products: The artificial sweetener found inside can destroy brain function

https://www.naturalhealth365.com/artificial-sweetener-dementia-2821.html

artificial-sweetener(NaturalHealth365) According to the great physicist, Albert Einstein, insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Well, in the case of diet soda or other products that use an artificial sweetener, millions of consumers hope to lose weight or ‘get healthy’ by drinking these products, yet end up ruining their health.

The reason is simple: research shows that aspartame – the main and most popular type of artificial sweetener on the market – causes oxidative stress in the brain, a dangerous type of cell damage associated with inflammation, accelerated aging, and chronic disease.

Editor’s note: If you have any doubt about the dangers of aspartame – which is used in MANY diet products, I urge you to look (and listen) to this epic podcast. (shocking details!)

Consuming any artificial sweetener will INCREASE your risk of brain problems, according to research
In a 2017 study published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary, and Alternative Medicines, researchers discovered some disturbing data: the level of brain neurotransmitters serotonin, GABA, and dopamine were reduced in rats who had been fed aspartame compared to a control group.

Additionally, the aspartame-fed rats had higher levels of norepinephrine (a stress hormone) and acetylcholine and lower levels of brain antioxidant activity.

Based on their data, the authors concluded that consuming aspartame disrupts normal neurochemical function and causes oxidative damage to brain cells. They also pointed out that the effects of aspartame were dose-dependent – meaning that the more artificial sweetener consumed, the greater the negative effects.

This should be a major warning bell, especially when we realize that at least 20% of Americans consume diet soda every day, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And it’s not just soft drinks: remember that aspartame is also things like gum, candy, diet fruit juice, and yogurt!

Diet soda drinkers will probably NOT like this message, but it’s just the truth
Of course, this isn’t the only study (by a long shot) that shows how aspartame is hazardous to your health. We already reported on findings from the famed Framingham Heart Study Offspring cohort, which assessed dietary habits of over 4,372 participants.

This study showed that people who consumed even just ONE can or bottle of a diet soft drink had nearly TRIPLE the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

And another 2014 study published in PLOS One found that while rats fed with aspartame had lower body masses, they also had disrupted gut bacteria, higher blood sugar, and increased insulin resistance…yet somehow, people are supposed to believe drinking diet soda is good for people with diabetes!

Other research on animal models has also shown that aspartame is carcinogenic, too…rings a bell?

Two other types of artificial sweetener (cyclamate, aka Sucaryl, and saccharin, aka Sweet’N Low) were pulled off the market back in the 1970s because lab test showed they cause cancer in animals.

Yet somehow American consumers are supposed to believe that any other artificial sweetener is ‘perfectly safe.’ Let’s be real: if it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, and sounds like a duck…you get the idea.

Besides, aspartame is 200 times sweetener than sugar and can keep you in the food craving trap even worse than real sugar (which still isn’t a good choice, by the way).

Your best bet: avoid artificial sweeteners. If you need to satisfy your sweet tooth, opt for natural alternatives instead, including Stevia, organic local raw honey, and blackstrap molasses.

Poop Patrol: San Fran deploys squads to clear streets of human feces after residents raise stink

San Francisco has established ‘Poop Patrols’ to deal with human waste that’s contaminating sidewalks in one of America’s wealthiest cities, sometimes making them almost impassable.

A homeless person in San Francisco Complaints soar as San Francisco drowns in human waste

The city is about to launch the ‘Poop Patrols’ squad to remove man-made feces from the streets, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The task force, made up of five Public Works staffers, will begin patrolling sidewalks “in about a month.”

‘Poop Patrol’ will begin its unenviable work in the afternoon, by which time piles of feces tend to become visible. The poo crew will travel in a vehicle equipped with a steam cleaner. “We’re trying to be proactive,” explained Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru. “We’re actually out there looking for it.”

The Chronicle, however, good-naturedly trolled the city official, saying: “We’re all out there looking for it, our eyes are trained on the sidewalks as we walk so as to avoid that awful squishy feeling.”

It looks like the news is coming at just the right time, as around 65 complaints regarding sidewalk poop are made by San Francisco residents every day. Notably, the city, which is known for its skyrocketing housing prices, has only 22 public toilets.

Being part of a multi-million effort called Pit Stop, the toilets are open only until late afternoon or evening. So, at nighttime, there is only one option for homeless people to relieve themselves when urgently required.

Some of the waste also comes from dogs, as their owners fail to pick up after them.

Mayor London Breed had been taking unannounced tours to check out the city’s streets before she teamed up with Public Works to establish ‘Poop Patrols.’ Breed said she had “to deal it with myself in front of my home,” which was “not a pleasant feeling.”

Earlier this year, residents pounded city authorities with demands to remove “sh*t, poop and excrement” from public areas. “[A] homeless encampment is blocking [the] sidewalk and creates a health hazard [with] trash and feces. Please move them, and send a cleaning crew. Sidewalk is impassable, forcing pedestrians into the street,” read one municipal complaint.

The scale of San Francisco’s human-waste problem was graphically illustrated back in July, when photos of a sizeable plastic bag of excrement that was abandoned on a street corner were circulated on social media.

Tech hub San Francisco, California is the second-most expensive US city to live in. It’s also awash with human waste. This year, over 16,000 feces-related complaints have been lodged with city authorities.

As of Thursday, there have been 16,022 complaints made about ‘feces,’ and thousands of others made using words like ‘sh*t’, ‘poop’ and ‘excrement’, to San Francisco’s municipal authorities.

“Human feces still not cleaned up despite multiple complaints. How many weeks will pass?” reads one complaint lodged Wednesday.

“Bodily fluids and feces down the whole street, garbage, cloths, food thrown all over sidewalk,” reads another.

“Homeless encampment is blocking sidewalk and creates a health hazard w trash and feces. Please move them, and send a cleaning crew. Sidewalk is impassable, forcing pedestrians into the street,” reported one user, his complaint accompanied with a photo of a tent pitched under a tree in the city’s central Mission district.

San Francisco residents can make non-emergency ‘311’ municipal complaints with the touch of a button, thanks to a website and a mobile app. Complainants can attach photos as proof, and the authorities send a notification when the problem is resolved.

Many of the complaints are connected to the city’s homeless problem. Rent in the city averages over $3,500 per month, pricing out all but the highest earners and creating a city of wealthy tech employees on one side, and a teeming homeless underclass on the other.

San Francisco is beautiful, just don’t mind the giant bags of feces and step over the used hypodermic needles!

There are an estimated 7,500 homeless people in San Francisco at any given time, almost one percent of the city’s 871,000 population. Elsewhere in California, the problem is almost as grave, with more than one quarter of the US homeless population living in the state.

The city’s seedy underbelly leaves behind other forms of hazardous waste too. A February NBC report revealed that in addition to feces, downtown San Francisco is polluted with more garbage and used syringes than some of the world’s poorest slums.

Dr Lee Riley, an infectious diseases expert at the University of California in Berkeley, told NBC reporters that in some parts of the city, the contamination is “much greater than communities in Brazil or Kenya or Italy.”

Getting stuck by a used needle can pass on diseases like HIV and Hepatitis B and C. San Francisco has one of the largest HIV-positive populations in the US, with an estimated 16,010 people living with the disease.

The extent of San Francisco’s human waste problem was graphically illustrated last week, with photos of a 20-pound bag of excrement abandoned on a street corner going viral. The city received several 311 complaints about the bag, as citizens reported a “strong smell of feces” in the area. One reddit user described the bag as “the most atrocious smell I’ve ever smelled in San Francisco.”

Complaints about human waste in San Francisco have skyrocketed, increasing by 400 percent from 2008 to 2018, according to the City. The 311 site and app received over 21,000 reports last year. At the current rate, that figure will be more than doubled by the end of 2018.

The problem is starting to hit the Golden Gate City where it hurts too. This week, a major medical association decided to pull its annual convention out of the city, citing safety concerns.

The convention was expected to draw 15,000 attendees and bring $40 million into the city’s economy, but organizers told the San Francisco Chronicle that members were afraid to walk the streets and felt threatened by open drug use, unchecked mental illness, and threatening behaviour from the city’s vagrant population.

Twitter users have not been shy about their disgust with the city’s problems, with many blaming years of Democrat leadership for allowing the problem to fester.

San Francisco has reached critical mass in the drug, homeless, crime problem. Now major conventions are cancellingc. Participants too afraid to walk alone in the City by the Bay. So sad. Such a beautiful city being run into the ground.https://t.co/GGtecdpY6f

San Francisco has grappled with homelessness since the 1970s, with the shortage of housing, deindustrialization, welfare cuts, and the gutting of the city’s middle class through high taxes and gentrification all getting blamed for the problem. Attempts to fix the situation have thus far proven unsuccessful. The temporary shelters opened by Dianne Feinstein in the late 1970s were underfunded and buckled under demand, while the aggressive crackdowns of Frank Jordan and Willie Brown in the 1990s and 2000s drew public backlash and alienated the city’s liberal voters. The city has not had a Republican mayor since 1964.

Recently elected Mayor London Breed has faced even more urgent calls to address the issue before business and tourism are scared away for good. Industry leaders have encouraged the mayor-elect to increase police patrols, enforce panhandling laws, and fund mental health services. With tourism bringing in some $9 billion dollars per year, failing to clean up the streets could bankrupt the city by the bay.

Description:
A man has died in Uganda’s capital after an outbreak of Marburg, a highly infectious hemorrhagic fever similar to Ebola, authorities said on Sunday [5 Oct 2014], adding that a total of 80 people who came into contact with him were quarantined. Marburg starts with a severe headache followed by hemorrhaging and leads to death in 80 percent or more of cases in about 9 days. It is from the same family of viruses as Ebola, which has killed thousands in West Africa in recent months. There is no vaccine or specific treatment for the Marburg virus, which is transmitted through bodily fluids such as saliva and blood or by handling infected wild animals such as monkeys. The health ministry said in a statement that the 30-year-old radiographer died on 28 Sep 2014 while working at a hospital in Kampala. He had started feeling unwell about 10 days earlier, and his condition kept deteriorating. He complained of headache, abdominal pain, vomiting blood and diarrhea. Samples were taken and tested at the Uganda Virus Research Institute, and results confirmed the man had a marburgvirus. Doctors said his brother, one of the people he came into contact with, has developed similar symptoms and has been quarantined in a group of 80 others, 60 of whom are health workers. Those quarantined came into contact with the victim either in Kampala or his burial place in Kasese, a district in western Uganda bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. Marburg has a shorter incubation period of 14 days, compared with Ebola’s 21. The current outbreak of Ebola, the deadliest on record so far, has killed more than 3400 people in 4 West African countries. Uganda has been hit by several outbreaks of Marburg and Ebola in the past, but it has contained the outbreaks quickly, limiting fatalities. Its worst occurrence of hemorrhagic fever occurred in 2000, when 425 people contracted Ebola, and more than half of them died.
The name of Hazard: Marburg virus (MARV)
Species: Human
Status: Confirmed
