Peter R. de Vries helpt de Anne Faber psyop verder spinnen met bericht over vader slachtoffer Michael P.

Oct 16th 2017, 10:23, by Martin Vrijland

Peter R. de Vries, mag de Anne Faber psyop verder spinnen door vanochtend een bericht op Twitter te plaatsen, waarin hij beweert dat de vader van 1 van de verkrachte meisje te vergeefs om hulp bij de Nederlandse politiek aanklopte. Als half Nederland grote vraagtekens bij geloofwaardigheid van de moord op Anne Faber begint te stellen, […]

DNA op jas van Anne Faber leidde naar Michael Panhuis, maar wel veel te laat!

Oct 14th 2017, 09:31, by Martin Vrijland

Het DNA op de jas van Anne Faber zou nu volgens de officiële mededeling van de NOS naar Michael Panhuis hebben geleid. Anne’s jas werd al op 3 oktober gevonden. Michael’s DNA zat 100% zeker in de database van het NFI. Michael was immers veroordeeld zedendelinquent. Michael had dus op 4 oktober aangehouden moeten en kunnen […]

Waarom Michael Panhuis de moord op Anne Faber opbiechtte

Oct 13th 2017, 09:53, by Martin Vrijland

In de persconferentie van gisteren werd duidelijk dat de politie het lichaam van Anne Faber zou hebben gevonden op aanwijzing van Michael Panhuis. Dat betekent dus automatische dat Michael een bekentenis moet hebben afgelegd. Je kan immers niet zeggen waar het lichaam licht als je niet zelf de dader bent. Past dit wel in het […]

Lichaam Anne Faber gevonden na aanwijzing Michael Panhuis, 13 dagen na eerste vermissing

Oct 12th 2017, 17:18, by Martin Vrijland

Iets over zessen vanavond werd in een persconferentie van de politie gemeld dat het lichaam van Anne Faber op aanwijzing van Michael Panhuis is gevonden. Rutger Jeuken, de plaatsvervangend hoofdofficier van parket Midden Nederland bracht de trieste mededeling als eerste. De afgelopen dagen werd Michael P. afgeschilderd als een enorme psychopaat die zou hebben lopen pochen […]

Als je de plannen van het nieuwe kabinet Rutte III ziet, dan vraag je je onmiddellijk of je die 4 apen in pak niet meteen in de boeien moet slaan voor diefstal. Dat mag overigens niet meer gezegd worden, want op belediging staat voortaan 2 jaar. Je mag ze ook geen ‘dames en heren’ meer […]

Aanhouding Michael P. inzake Anne Faber is extreem verdacht en veel te laat

Oct 10th 2017, 00:57, by Martin Vrijland

De aanhouding van verdachte Michael P. inzake de vermiste Anne Faber is uitermate verdacht te noemen. Michael P. was een gedetineerde en dus zou zijn DNA zeker bij politie bekend moeten zijn geweest. Op dinsdag 3 oktober werd het eerste kledingstuk van Anne gevonden; haar jas. Op 6 oktober stelde het NFI vast dat de […]

Anne Faber het meest waarschijnlijke scenario: ontvoering, moord of iets anders?

Oct 8th 2017, 11:18, by Martin Vrijland

Uit alle media berichtgeving tot nu toe kunnen we een waarschijnlijkheidsanalyse maken over wat de oorzaak van de vermissing van Anne Faber is. We gaan dan kijken naar het laatst verzonden appje, de locatie waar haar jas, fiets en rugzak gevonden zijn en kunnen dan al snel tot de conclusie komen dat er geen sprake […]

Los van de vraag of de zaak Anne Faber nu wel of niet in scene is gezet om toepassing van de sleepwet in een positief jasje te steken, lijkt de politie nu in te zetten op de introductie van apps die moeten gaan helpen bij opsporing.

40 Jaar Duitse Herfst 4&5: Peter O. Chotjewitz, Niet Verzoend en Nog steeds geen vrede

Oct 16th 2017, 13:41, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Peter O. Chotjewitz)

Peter O. Chotjewitz (1934-2010) was advocaat van Andreas Baader, die hij reeds uit de oprichtingsperiode van de RAF kende. Hij vertaalde werken van Dario Fo en van Nina Ballestrini en schreef onder meer ‘De bezoekers van de dageraad’ (Wereldvenster, Baarn, 1979) over de repressie in West-Duitsland in de zeventiger jaren, en ‘Saumlos’ (Wereldvenster, Bussum, 1981) over het antisemitisme in Duitsland in de jaren dertig.

Red het pensioenstelsel, nieuwe strijd van de vakbeweging

Oct 16th 2017, 12:32, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Sjarrel Massop/solidariteit)

Het lijkt erop dat de leiding van de vakbeweging geen serieuze zaak wil maken van het op orde houden van het pensioenstelsel. Dat staat niet los van de relatieve zwakte van de vakbeweging en de onderlinge verdeeldheid. Onrust over de sociale verslechteringen bracht een aantal kaderleden uit de sector Senioren tot het initiatief van een actiecomité onder het motto: ”Red het Pensioenstelsel”. Het woord actiecomité verraadt de intentie. Het vertrouwen dat de polder het zal regelen, is er niet. Dat betekent dat de strijd door vakbondsleden zelf gevoerd moet worden.

VNO/NCW achter afschaffen dividendbelasting

Oct 16th 2017, 09:08, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Pyt van der Galiën/krapuul)

Waar komt de afschaffing van de dividendbelasting in het regeerakkoord toch vandaan? Geen enkele partij had dit cadeautje aan multinationale bedrijven en beleggers in het verkiezingsprogramma staan. NRC levert vandaag het antwoord.

De ‘Monsanto Boys’: Schurken Zonder Grenzen

Oct 15th 2017, 08:48, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Stéphane Foucart en Stéphane Horel/Thom Holterman/Le Monde/Libertaire Orde)

De verdenkingen omtrent het kankerverwekkende karakter van glyfosaat in onkruidverdelgers van Monsanto stapelen zich op. Naar mate dit duidelijker wordt, komt het verdienmodel van Monsanto meer in gevaar. Uiteindelijk gaat het om miljarden. Die wil Monsanto zich niet laten ontnemen. Dus dringen de ‘Monsanto boys’ van de firma diep in de organisatie van Europese en Amerikaanse overheidsinstanties, die toxicologische (= betrekking hebbend op de werking van giftige stoffen) middelen op hun schadelijkheid voor de gezondheid van mens, dier en milieu beoordelen. Dit binnendringen gebeurt om de besluitvorming in die overheidsinstanties ten gunste van de ‘firma’ te beïnvloeden. Fraude, bedrog, onder druk zetten, belonen, het zijn middelen die niet worden geschuwd. 

Chomsky: Wie regeert de wereld?

Oct 14th 2017, 19:13, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Jonas Slaats/DeWereldMorgen)

De bekende linguïst en politicoloog Noam Chomsky, die vaak terecht omschreven wordt als één van de belangrijkste en meest geciteerde intellectuelen in de wereld, wordt ondertussen een dagje ouder. Volgend jaar wordt hij immers negentig. Niettemin geeft hij geregeld interviews, onderzoekt en becommentarieert hij de hedendaagse geopolitiek en laat hij zo nog steeds zijn licht schijnen over de complexe conflicten die onze wereld in de ban houden.

Oct 12th 2017, 09:39, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Diversen le Monde, Johny Lenaerts)

Veertig jaar geleden woedde de ‘Duitse Herfst’ met bloedige aanslagen en ontvoeringen van de Rote Armee Fraction en kiezelharde reacties van de staat. In een serie artikelen, hier het eerste deel over de Franse documentaire ‘Une Jeunesse Allemande’. Een recensie van de film uit Le Monde en een interview met de maker Jean-Gabriel Périot. Met een korte introductie door vertaler Johny Lenaerts.

De EU en de hete glyfosaat-aardappel

Oct 12th 2017, 08:39, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Herman Michiel/Ander Europa)

Op 15 december 2017 vervalt de huidige Europese toelating voor het gebruik van glyfosaat, de chemische stof die door Monsanto in zijn onkruidverdelger RoundUp gebruikt wordt. Hernieuwing van de toelating is de voorbije jaren steeds feller bediscussieerd geworden, aangezien wetenschappelijk onderzoek wijst op het mogelijks kankerverwekkend en  hormoonverstorend karakter van glyfosaat. De Monsanto-lobby doet er natuurlijk alles aan om dit als larie van de hand te doen en haar kip met de gouden eieren het eeuwig leven te geven.

40 jaar na de ‘Duitse Herfst’

Oct 10th 2017, 15:37, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Diversen Duitse herfst)

Op 19 oktober 1977 werd het doodgeschoten lichaam van de Duitse ondernemerschef en ex-SSer Hans Martin Schleyer gevonden in de kofferbak van een auto in Mulhouse. Een dag eerder hadden Duitse commando’s in Somalië een vliegtuig bestormd, dat Palestijnen hadden gekaapt om Duitse politieke gevangenen vrij te krijgen. Drie van die politieke gevangenen – oprichters van de RAF – werden diezelfde nacht in Stuttgart dood in hun cel aangetroffen. Het hoogtepunt van de Duitse Herfst, veertig jaar geleden, en tevens hoogtepunt van de meest militante vorm van zelfverklaard links verzet in na-oorlogs Europa. Het is aanleiding om een aantal kritische teksten over deze geschiedenis van (gewapende) linkse strijd te publiceren.

Kill All Normies – Alt-Right nog niet verklaard

Oct 10th 2017, 11:53, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Alex de Jong/grenzeloos.org)

Het Trump tijdperk heeft de wereld nieuwe begrippen gebracht; fake news, alternative facts en ‘Alt-Right’, kort voor Alternative Right. Na de onverwachte verkiezingsoverwinning van Trump en de sterk gegroeide zichtbaarheid van allerlei vormen van extreem-rechts in de Verenigde Staten raakte de term snel ingeburgerd, vaak als containerbegrip voor de meest extreme groepen onder de achterban van Trump. Maar wat deze groepen dan anders maakte dan traditioneel extreem-rechts, dat bleef onduidelijk.

Frankrijk 10 oktober : blokkades en manifestaties tegen de ‘ordonnances’

Hieronder de oproep van scholieren, om op die dag mee te doen door (eerst) hun school te blokkeren en vervolgens aan (de kop van) de demonstratie deel te nemen. Deze oproep is gericht op mensen in en om Parijs, maar er zijn weer mobilisaties op vele plekken in Frankrijk.

Handelsoorlog VS China

Oct 9th 2017, 08:47, by keesstad@xs4all.nl (Antoine Uytterhaeghe/Uitpers)

Peking toont zich in het handelsconflict met Washington zeer bedaard, in de wetenschap dat beide landen sterk van elkaar afhankelijk zijn. Aan de andere kant is men luidruchtiger. President Trump dreigt met hoge geldboetes, maar ook hier tonen de cijfers van zijn minister van financiën duidelijk de afhankelijkheid aan van beide landen.

thumbnail Mainstream Medicine Admits Medical Cannabis is Effective in Treating Leukemia – But Only Synthetic Patented Version

Oct 16th 2017, 21:28, by Admin – Orissa

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

There has been a bit of a stir recently over mainstream medical analysis that supports cannabis for treating leukemia. Unfortunately, most of it involves cannabis as an adjunct or supporting treatment for chemotherapy, while the rest supports synthetic THC for leukemia.

An example of this is a 2016 study referenced in a June 2017 issue of Herb in the article “Is Cannabis Effective Against Leukemia,” which surprisingly cautiously skirted the issue of curing leukemia with cannabis.

The study referenced, Dronabinol has preferential antileukemic activity in acute lymphoblastic and myeloid leukemia with lymphoid differentiation patterns, which basically examined the efficacy of a pharmaceutical drug called dronabinol, the active synthetic THC compound of Marinol.

The study was very favorable, concluding:

Our study provides rigorous data to support clinical evaluation of THC as a low-toxic therapy option in a well defined subset of acute leukemia patients. (Source)

So this synthetic THC drug dronabinol is okay with the FDA, and the DEA has it listed as a Schedule III controlled substance. Yet the whole plant cannabis commonly known as marijuana with its balanced assortment of 80 or so cannabinoids and terpenes and flavonoids that contribute to a safe synergistic entourage effect of healing is still listed as Schedule I, dangerous, addictive, and without medical merit.

Empirical Evidence of Cannabis for Leukemia

Reported cancer remissions and complete resolution testimonials using cannabis oils are abundant. But they are labeled anecdotal. Promoting or using cannabis based on these reports is considered anti-science or science denial.

Instead of anecdotal, empirically proven is more appropriate. Empirical describes events proven by actually experiencing or observing it. Here’s an example of empirical proof that cannabis works for leukemia.

Holistic doctor Jeffrey Dach, M.D., and author of Natural Medicine 101, (How to Win the Medical Information War and Take Control of Your Health), presented the video provided below from his website’s four part cannabis healing series.

He went on to discuss an official case study of a 14 year old girl with an acute aggressive form of leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who had undergone an aggressive series of mainstream oncology treatments that included chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and a bone marrow transplant.

The girl underwent all those treatments yet after 34 months, her leukemia returned full strength again. The doctors gave up on continuing treatments, mostly because her condition had debilitated so much from their aggressive toxic treatments there was no way she could survive further conventional treatments.

She was sent home to die. But her parents did not give up. They researched alternative cures and came upon cannabis as a solution. A Rick Simpson online group they contacted got them the information they needed about RSO or Rick Simpson Oil. Canadian Rick Simpson rediscovered how to make cannabis oil, a highly concentrated decoction, a result of boiling down a solution with herbs to a concentrated thicker fluid.

This teenage girl’s life and death drama occurred in Toronto, Canada. After her release from oncology treatments at the Hospital for Sick Children aka SickKids, her cannabis treatment from her parents was monitored in Toronto. The teenage girl also needed ongoing blood transfusions due to her constantly rising blood “blasts,” or lymphoblasts.

Because of her destroyed immune system from toxic oncology treatments, she came down with infectious diseases and had to be put on a heavy antibiotic regimen. But during all this, the authors of this case study were graphing the decline of high blast blood levels with that administration of cannabis oil and observed a very significant drop of her blast levels. (Source)

In other words, regardless of her extreme illness, her leukemia was in remission.

They concluded that her remission was from cannabis oil, evidenced from the dose dependent effects of lowering her blast levels and the fact that she was on palliative care for all her other debilitating illnesses. Therefore she did not have a spontaneous remission.

The remission was caused by the cannabis. This case study was published in Case Reports on Oncology in 2013, and the abstract and full text is available here.

She did pass on from all her other health complications, created (at least mostly) by the toxic and aggressive standard of care mainstream medical treatments she had endured. This is more typical than most know.

Dr. Gary Glum, who authored Calling of an Angel to promote Rene Caisse’s herbal Essiac tea for cancer, told of how he helped the family of a young boy whose aggressive chemo treatments failed to curb his leukemia.

The young boy was given Essiac tea often enough to cause a remission of his leukemia, but he died anyway. An autopsy was performed and it determined the actual cause of death was heart failure due to heart muscles weakened from chemo drug toxins.

Cannabis is likely a more potent herb against cancer than the herbs involved with Essiac tea, which cured many over the course of several years until Rene Caisse passed away. And it is just as safe.

Politics Disrupts Cannabis Medical Progress

It’s been a few weeks since Health Impact News reported on the saber rattlings of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ letter to Congress urging them to disallow inclusion of the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment in the next passage of the federal spending bill.

This amendment has served as a buffer protecting marijuana legal states from the DEA’s use of force to harass cannabis users, dispensaries, and producers as long as they are within that state’s laws and guidelines. It does this by not allowing funds authorized for the Justice Department to be used for any legal interventions in medical marijuana legal states.

Not including this short amendment in the omnibus federal spending bill or Consolidated Appropriations Act that’s haggled over and passed annually would allow Sessions to execute the crackdown on cannabis that he desires. (Source)

Update: The Senate committee disagreed with Sessions and included it in their version of the spending bill last July 2017. After a couple of House Committee obstacles this past month, the situation has been patched up temporarily. It remains in the House version until December 8, 2017. The 2018 omnibus spending bill will hopefully end the suspense on a positive note.

An even more positive note would be at least having a proper discussion on the latest marijuana friendly proposal, the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017, introduced into the House in March 2017 for discussion toward voting for legislation. That could be the sanest approach to the nonsense surrounding medical marijuana.

A Less Localized Harmonic of Legal Marijuana Issues in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the largest city in the state that started the whole medical marijuana movement, California, which is on the verge of expanding from very liberal medical cannabis regulations to allowing pot for adult recreational use.

With that eventuality coming to pass, many cannabis entrepreneurs were ready to expand their businesses. But within the new local legislation for 2018, Los Angeles cannabis operations would have to shut down until new city business licenses are issued.

This is a process that takes time and would adversely affect an estimated 80 percent of existing cannabis operations that are operating within state law guidelines. It is hoped that a win-win agreement could be forged soon, such as grandfathering existing dispensaries and providers while license applications go through their processes. (Source)

Despite these obstacles, cannabis continues to prove itself medically. But getting it changed from a Schedule I controlled substance (dangerous, addictive, and without medical merit) to Schedule II or III (useful under medical supervision) has been long overdue since 1988.

Here’s a surprising comment from DEA Chief Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young, ruling in the matter of a Marijuana Rescheduling Petition, September 6, 1988:

Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within a supervised routine of medical care. … It would be unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious for DEA to continue to stand between those sufferers and the benefits of this substance in light of the evidence in this record.

Of course Judge Young’s advice was ignored. All 69 pages of his commentary and ruling can be accessed here.

thumbnail Report: The Corruption and Sadistic Culture Within Child Protective Services is a Threat to Every Family in America

Oct 16th 2017, 21:24, by Admin – Orissa

CPS-Foster-Care-report

Some of the many foster children abused in CPS custody

by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff

The Huffington Post has released a report on Child Protective Services (CPS) by Child Advocate and contributor Patricia Mitchell, founder of Patricia’s Children, Inc. The report is filled with documented data that is important for all families to know, due to the threat that CPS poses to literally every family in America.

Some of the data in the report will come as no surprise to the families impacted by medical kidnapping. While children and parents are being destroyed behind closed agency and courtroom doors, the majority of the public remains blissfully ignorant of the reality, much like the citizens in Eastern Europe were unaware of the atrocities happening to their fellow citizens in the concentration camps under the Nazi regime.

This is information that needs to be shared with friends and neighbors, politicians, media, and policy makers, and it needs to provide a catalyst for change. We simply cannot maintain this trajectory and survive as a culture. The cost – our children – is simply too high.

According to the report:

Southern states have had the highest numbers of babies dying in CPS custody, in the south CPS agencies commonly shred their files in lieu of reporting the deaths.

In the footnote to that statement, Patricia Mitchell notes that the:

Author of CPS Report was told by several professionals in the CPS industry that ―it is has become common practice in CPS agencies to shred the files of a child that dies or goes missing in CPS.

Retired CPS Supervisor a veteran of 30 years from Oklahoma, Marilyn Rainwater, has made it her mission to announce to the public these unsettling disturbing practices that occur daily in CPS offices across the nation.

Majority of Children in Foster Care are Abused – Foster Care Overall is Worse than Troubled Homes

At Health Impact News, we have learned that children are at least 6 times more likely to be abused, raped, molested, or killed in foster care than they would be even if left in troubled homes.

See:

Foster Care Children are Worse Off than Children in Troubled Homes – The Child Trafficking Business

Excerpt from the CPS Report:

We have interviewed several retired CPS supervisors, with at least 30 years of experience, who have confirmed these trends and added brutal horror stories of their own. Newspaper articles from all over the country have reported children in CPS enduring months of serial rapes, vicious beatings, dehydration, and malnourishment.

Foster parents sedating foster children, placing them in cages, handcuffing them to objects, and locking them in dark rooms for days. Healthy children (including those as young as 3 months old) dubbed ― “emotional problems” once in CPS custody are given pharmaceuticals supplied by the CPS caseworker, paid for by our government, administered by the foster parents.

80 percent of children in CPS custody are considered having― “emotional problems” ripe for ‘meds,’ while more than half of all children in foster care are considered to have ― “chronic medical problems,” [Source] every time a caseworker labels a child, a prescription is made out for that child.

According to the Children’s Bureau, 64 percent of children in foster care are abused. [Source]

Many people closer to this industry believe the number is closer to 87 percent. 82 percent of the severely abused and deaths are under the age of four. [Source]

These children were taken from their birth parents and given to unqualified and unfit foster parents. CPS staff members and affiliates themselves also register as foster parents, as it suits their financial interests.

CPS-affiliated workers in every state have been charged with some of the most sadistic forms of child abuse, including the rape of toddlers and infants. [Source]

This includes caseworkers, CPS nurses, doctors, supervisors, and regional directors charged with raping newborns and toddlers, pornography, and child abuse.

These findings are consistent with what we have discovered in our research at Health Impact News.

Devani was taken from her parents based on allegedly false allegations. Arizona DCS placed her into a pedophile pornography ring. After she was taken out of that, DCS adopted her out to a woman who reportedly scalded 80% of her body. Source: AZ Childrens Lives Matter Facebook page.

See just a tiny sample of the abuse that has happened to the children in the stories we have covered:

Medically Kidnapped South Carolina Boy Raped in Group Home – Attorney Speaks Out on State Abuse

Missouri Teen Medically Kidnapped Was Raped and Sodomized While in Illinois Foster Care

Kidnapped Twins in Michigan Physically Abused: Being Shipped out of State to Destroy Family Ties

Excerpt:

Each year, thousands of more children and parents fall prey to CPS’s fractured system, with only 6 percent (or 39,000 out of 650,000) of these children having been in legitimate danger.

[Footnote] AFSCARS Report /Children’s Bureau/ Child Welfare Gateway. In these reports the charts read 39,000 (children) were in “high risk environments.” In the CPS industry this simply means endanger. Comparing the yearly number of children in foster care with the number of children in “high risk environments,” this comes out to only 6 percent of children in foster care were in dangerous environments.

Mitchell states the sad truth that we have seen time and time again:

Laypeople assume there was probable cause to have taken these children, and that CPS will give them a better life. But prior to CPS’s involvement, the majority of these children were healthy and happy.

Children often suffer permanent damage from both the abuse suffered in foster care and from the trauma of being separated from their real families.

Excerpt:

Relying on the current statistics, within a five-year period, that’s close to 5 million children separated from their parents, families, and homes. Many will suffer permanent damage, although the grand majority should have never been separated from their parents.

Parents Often Bullied and Threatened into Silence – Public Largely Unaware of Atrocities in Foster Care

We hear repeatedly from parents who have been told not to talk about their stories. The CPS Report notes this as well.

Excerpt:

CPS caseworkers and court officials often tell traumatized parents that it won’t help their children’s well-being (or prospects of their children’s return) if they go to the press. Scared but silenced, these parents may never learn their children’s whereabouts or outcomes in time.

Many parents have told us horrific stories of medical kidnappings, only to be bullied into silence by social workers, attorneys, Guardian ad litems (GALs), or judges. There are stories that never reach the public eye because the parents are too frightened to risk retaliation by going public.

One of the most difficult stories that never made it to press was from the mother of a child who wrote of her medically fragile child being taken by CPS. She decided that it was too risky to go public with their story. Only a few months later, the same mother sent us her child’s obituary notice.

Many parents and even children have told us that they know that their freedom only came about because they took the chance in speaking up and taking their story to the public. It is in bringing the truth into the light that their children have been returned home.

The gag orders to silence parents only serve to give the true perpetrators of abuse the cover of secrecy. The wicked deeds happen behind closed doors, shrouded in darkness. The very reason that the Founding Fathers included Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press in the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution was in order to avoid the very thing that is happening now.

Foster Care – A System of Destroying Families and Lives

Excerpts:

Children are kept in State Custody for as long as possible, even after the CPS caseworker and affiliates discover allegations against the parent(s) were false.

CPS protects the foster parents.

For example, a caseworker will assure prospective foster parents that CPS will not check in on them without calling first, most likely to further entice them into registering.

However, this practice has had unintended consequences, attracting pedophiles and predators to become foster parents.

An anonymous caller (i.e., a scorned girlfriend, sour neighbor, spiteful partner, envious family member) phones in a complaint against a parent, without any evidence that the allegation is true – that’s all it can take for children’s removal from their homes, snatched out of their parents’ arms by under-qualified CPS caseworkers.

Caseworkers have enough authority to direct police officers to escort them into any home, to take children away, regardless of whether the Officers, Doctors, Therapists, Judges, Mayors, Senators, or other professional experts adamantly disagree.

Sometimes those who fight against the system face retaliation. According to the CPS Report:

While serving as an Arizona State Senator, Rick Murphy’s children were taken away by CPS caseworkers. His case remained unresolved for over a year (with his children in foster care) and his local CPS agency had the ability to terminate his parental rights. [Source]

Many believe this was an act of defiance by CPS, without real concern for his children’s safety. [Source]

Georgia Senator Nancy Schaefer’s murder is believed to be related to her exposure of the atrocities of CPS. See:

Parents and children are manipulated by the various players in the CPS system, and the foxes are guarding the henhouse. Mitchell reports:

ALL court-appointed attorneys are paid through CPS, thus are a part of this system. The CPS courts have a tremendous amount of flexibility and plenty of room to manipulate each case to ensure the desired outcome. When Guardian Ad litems, therapists, psychiatrists, etc., do not support the CPS caseworkers’ allegations against the parents, or CPS’s decision where to place a child, CPS will almost always sever, and not renew, its contract with that professional. This has caused a conflict of interest, and has caused professionals not to act in the best interests of the child and parents.

CPS may keep a child in state custody for as long as it wants, for as long as it can. Even though States have internal rules (such as returning the child in three weeks – in some States, it’s seven days), no one is enforcing these internal rules, resulting in children left in foster care for three months on average, even after CPS courts know the allegations against the parent were false. Supervisors rarely, if ever, intervene.

The more children in foster care, the more money a CPS branch office will receive from the federal government. CPS staff and Affiliates’ salaries are directly affected by how many children the local CPS office places in State Custody. News of these loopholes (financial incentives) within the CPS industry has spread like wildfire throughout local communities. It became known as an easy way to ―“make a buck.”

Predators, pedophiles, drug addicts and the emotionally unstable gravitated toward CPS foster care as a means to make ends meet – to pay rent, put food on the table, and subsidize their alcohol or drug habits.

CPS often uses generic terms (i.e., a ―”history of substance abuse”), without offering any substantiation. A ―”history of mental illness” can be found in almost every CPS petition filed against a parent, without a doctors diagnoses, without referring to an incident or ‘a history.‘ I’ve spoken to mothers who’ve never taken drugs or been in the presence of drugs and never drank a glass of alcohol; yet their CPS petition against them suggests otherwise —‘history of substances abuse.’

When mental health professional or any expert witness/professional testifies ‘in favor’ of a parent; (against CPS’s decision to place the child in State custody) CPS caseworkers will insist that the professionals’ opinion’s are ONLY to be used to help CPS caseworkers and CPS employees make ‘their’ decision; reminding the judge that legal authority (where to place the child) remains solely with CPS (not with the pro’s & experts’ suggestions, evidence and opinions).

Financial Incentives to Create “Special Needs”

Excerpts:

The 1980 Act provided additional financial incentives for prospective foster parents. Its main provisions encouraged foster parents to adopt ―”special needs” children, who were eligible for the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program. Foster parents are paid anywhere from $408 in the South, to $3,990 in Connecticut, per month, per child. The dollar amounts vary from State to State, according to the child’s age, health status, special needs, or ―”intensive structural and clinical level care.” The ―”intensive structural and clinical” children are the ones who can go for approximately $3,990 per month and up.

More typically, foster children go for $600 to $1,200 a month, with ―special needs children coming in at $900 to $3,990 a month, but can go as high as $13,000 a month for a severely disabled child. [Source]

Foster parents willing to adopt a child receive an additional *flat sum of *$2,000 to $4,000, a federal adoption tax credit, and health insurance incentives (with, again, the special needs and ―”intensive structural” children proving the most profitable). [Source]

According to the 1980 Act, a foster child with ―”Special Needs”

  • Cannot be returned to the parents;
  • Has a special condition, such that the child cannot be placed without providing assistance; and
  • Has not been able to be placed without assistance.

With so much room for interpretation, the CPS caseworkers, alone, call the shots when it comes to labeling a child as ―”special needs” not a professional.

Malakai-skin-and-bones-photos

Malakai was healthy before entering foster care, but he was since starved and labeled as “special needs.” His family says that this was so they could get more money for him. See his story here.

In one case, a CPS affiliate became a foster parent (a common practice) and registered the child as ―”special needs,” due to a small and common type of birthmark (called a ―”strawberry” or hemangioma), to receive larger checks each month.

Children in State Custody are often given unnecessary surgeries or, on the flip side, denied surgery for legitimate medical conditions, even in cases where the parent still legally holds parental rights, such as in this birthmark scenario.

The CPS paperwork clearly refers to the birthmark-removal procedure as ―”Elective surgery” [Source] – so here is yet another instance of the CPS openly flouting federal mandates. The birth mother pleaded with CPS not to perform surgery on her child, quoting the CPS law to the caseworker making the decision: ―”the child in state custody may be operated on if it is a life-threatening situation.”

The child”s doctor (not the CPS doctor) expressed his own concerns – if the surgery went awry, the child could be permanently damaged, with the possibility of a stroke or death. The mother (who still had parental rights) pleaded with CPS to allow her to be there for her two-year-old child before and after the unnecessary surgeries (five surgeries in total), but CPS refused.

The upshot?… The Guardian Ad litem, CPS doctors, judges, foster parents, and caseworker and all others involved with this child’s case received larger paychecks.

Caseworkers label perfectly healthy children as ―”special needs” for extra profit; and fraudulently report 82 percent of foster care children have ―”chronic medical problems.” Encouraged by caseworkers, a majority of foster parents sedate —”special needs” children 24 hours a day. CPS claims that 82 percent of children in foster care ‘are in need’ of medication, [Source] funded by our federal government. Note: Pharmaceutical companies have contracts with DHS/CPS.

Federal Funding to Steal Children

At Health Impact News, we have discussed many times the financial incentives for the state to take children from their parents. The Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) of 1997 that was instrumental in unleashing financial motivation for taking children is being manipulated by unscrupulous and corrupt agencies and individuals who don’t care about “protecting” children at all.

ASFA enables this corruption, and many of the problems that we see with children being taken from innocent families could be stopped if the flow of federal dollars were simply cut off.

Mitchell discusses these monetary incentives in her report.

Excerpts:

ASFA’s most troubling feature involves its ― “Title IV-E of the Social Security Act” funding- related amendment. State and local CPS offices interpreted this as a financial free-for-all, unlimited federal funds for the entire community. This law intended to ― “shift emphasis toward children‘s health and concerns, away from the policy of reuniting children with their birth parents.”

Days after this 1997 Act went into effect, CPS solidified its role as a Big Business, with American children as commodities. At this time CPS began to remove children from their homes and parents, with weak allegations.

Disgruntled neighbors, scorned exes, angry employees, and envious family members are using the CPS courts as weapons against innocent parents. This has become a common practice in every county. CPS supervisors are encouraged ― “to get there [sic] numbers up” which mean we need more kids in foster care, CPS caseworkers are known to target parents who are vulnerable in some capacity.

ASFA’s ―Title IV-E amendment created a long list of financial beneficiaries at the local levels.

There are anywhere from 150 to 300 counties in each State, there are approximately 2 to 6 CPS offices per county and have more than 300 employees per agency.

Not including all the sub agencies, like Family First and Head Start etc., there are approximately 10,000 to 20,000 CPS employees per state and have approximately 250 agencies/offices per state, not including the hundreds of CPS affiliates paid under the umbrella of the DHS federal funding that covers an even wider range of employees and services: CPS supervisors, caseworkers, and staff; foster parents; adoptive parents; attorneys; counselors, therapists and psychiatrists; investigators; sub-state agencies such as Family First; private agencies; outside contract agencies, insurance companies, magistrates; classes; child welfare researchers; child development programs; trauma crisis and intervention programs; pediatrics, emergency medicine, and mental health; probate and criminal law proceedings; education and substance abuse treatment.

All of these agencies and individuals receive salaries or supplemental income from DHS/CPS.

According to Marilyn Rainwater, a retired Oklahoma CPS Supervisor, who worked for CPS for 30 years, ― “It was drilled into supervisors on the local levels – if the caseworker did not meet the federal mandates of moving kids quickly in and out of the system [caseworkers interpreting this as taking custody of the child and quickly terminating their parental rights], then that CPS office would not receive the funding needed to keep the office open.”

There are now federal penalties to further ensure the CPS offices deliver their ― “numbers” (children).

What’s troubling is how the ― “moving kids quickly in and out of the system” language was originally created at the federal level to quickly move the children back home with their parents, and/or move the child from foster care into a permanent home, with real adoptive parents.

Unfortunately, CPS has re- interpreted it to mean the termination of innocent parents’ rights, and terminating them as quickly as possible.

Rainwater has vowed to dedicate the rest of her life to exposing the horrors occurring daily in the current CPS industry. As she shouted out to a packed auditorium at the Sister Giant Conference (in LA, Nov. 2012): ― “We are killing babies, hundreds of them, they are being raped and tortured every year and then thrown out like garbage, and no one is doing anything about it!

Rainwater continued: ― “caseworkers are shredding the dead child’s files so no one knows about it, caseworkers are overworked/overwhelmed and have begun to falsify paperwork to reach their mandatory financial numbers.‘

The Public Is Being Lied to and Data is being Manipulated to Hide the Truth

Excerpts:

National “intelligence” services, such as the Children’s Bureau’s Child Maltreatment Report, are misleading. For instance, regarding the statistics on foster parent child abuse vs. birth parent child abuse, the birth parents’ high numbers are based on CPS allegations, not on facts.

Once the allegations are proven false, CPS has no obligation to update its original reports, deceiving federal regulators who depend on these reports when deciding how and where to make system- wide adjustments.

…statistics reveal 64 percent of foster parents have been “reported” to mistreat the children in their care. As said earlier, experts close to this industry know the majority of foster parents’ abuse goes unreported and the percentage of foster parents abusing their foster children is closer to *87 percent, possibly as high as 94 percent.

Since CPS does not report or document abusive foster parents, the only foster care abuse numbers the Child Maltreatment Report has access to would come from local police departments. The Children’s Bureau receives its information solely from Child Protective Services.

Drastic Measures to Shut Down the System CAN Happen – It Happened with State Mental Hospitals

The corruption and inconceivable cruelty within the CPS industry are similar to those that once involved this country’s state mental hospitals. In the 1970s, when Dr. Robert Felix, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health, was asked to explain his radical decision to close every State mental hospital in the country, he made it clear that drastic measures were called for.

For more than 100 years, the general public knew the mental patients in State (custody) hospitals were severely abused, raped, and medically experimented on, and so on; but the notion of releasing them out into the open was thought to be too risky and nobody had any solutions.

Nevertheless, Dr. Felix’s courageous decision was based on his statement; “We saw too many people who should have never been in there.

Finally, in 1973, the federal government, through Dr. Felix’s recommendations, began to shut down/close the doors to every state hospital in the United States. It is not a perfect system, but it is more humane.

Ending the Corruption and Sadistic Culture within Child Protective Services is the Civilized Thing to do

The author concludes:

Currently, billions of dollars are used to support the barbaric treatment of our most vulnerable citizens. Ending the daily corruption and sadistic culture within Child Protective Services is the civilized thing to do.

We agree.

Rejecting Flu Vaccine in Pregnancy

By Kelly Brogan, MD

Excerpts:

The Medicalization of Pregnancy

Women have permitted doctors and pharmaceutical companies privileged access to their fierce and primitive drive toward protecting a pregnancy. They have been made to feel fear, convinced that they need the support of the apparatus of allopathic medicine to get them through this perilous trial.

I’d like to take a moment to pause. Take a deep breath. And ask the women reading this to look inside and to check if that compass is there. Ask if they can hold it gently in their hand and trust that their bodies and minds know how to guide them, when properly supported and cared for.

If you must relinquish your power to doctors, I recommend finding one who acknowledges the awesome dangers of blindly following medical doctrine. Outsourcing our health to pharmaceutical companies is an extremely myopic approach to securing lasting wellness. I’d like to show you that the guiding authorities you have been led to believe are acting in your best interest are guilty of some pretty heinous crimes of abuse and neglect, and never more so than in the pregnant population.

Who Said to Get a Flu Shot While Pregnant?

I dare say that the modern woman has handed over her inner compass. It’s as if we came from generations of master chefs – natural giants in the kitchen, using our senses and instincts to guide us toward nourishing preparations – but we have been recently convinced through the promise of technology and corporate prowess that processed food is more reliable, nutritious, and beneficial. We’ve been convinced that Hamburger Helper is better for our families than a homemade Bolognese.

Enter the ACIP, or the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices

This group of “thought leaders” is charged with the task of determining what vaccines will be pushed upon you during your doctor’s check-ups and wellness visits. It consists of heads of pharmaceutical companies such as Novartis and Sanofi Pasteur, and is a prime example of the enmeshment between the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and industry.

There are several reasons why a committee that behaves in the way this one does should not be one that you trust with your body or your baby.

Since 1997, the ACIP has recommended the trivalent inactivated flu vaccine to pregnant women after the first trimester. Then, in 2004, this recommendation, inexplicably changed and grew, as is the way with vaccine recommendations, to encompass all pregnant women (and every human over 6 months of age), regardless of personal risk factors, immune determinants, diet, regional exposures, and timing of injection.

But they Must Have Determined that it was Safe? How Could They Recommend it?

Determining that something is “safe” in pregnancy is like saying that because individuals don’t have car accidents on passage from point A to B, that riding in a vehicle is safer than walking. For ethical reasons, pharmaceutical products cannot be studied in a randomized manner in pregnancy, severely limiting our ability to look at short or long-term outcomes. The surprising news is that vaccines, the pharmaceutical product in question, have never been studied in a truly placebo controlled manner, in single, or multiple deliveries, and not for long-term outcomes, even in a general population.

I have discussed, in previous articles, the concerns surrounding the recommendation of a pharmaceutical product to healthy pregnant women despite the lack of any general population studies. Here are some of my major gripes and reasons why you might want to reject the flu vaccine in pregnancy:

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?

Medical_Doctors_Opposed_to_Forced_Vaccinations_Should_Their_Views_be_Silence_sm

eBook – Available for immediate download.

One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this eBook, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.

eBook – Available for immediate download.

Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

Flu Vaccines in Pregnancy and Childhood: What You Need to Know

by The World Mercury Project Team

You want to do everything right for your child, and would never knowingly allow someone to inject a neurotoxin into your infant. Before getting a flu shot, you need to know this: MERCURY is a NEUROTOXIN.

What You Need to Know

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns pregnant women and young children not to eat fish containing high levels of methylmercury. Yet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends pregnant women and infants get influenza vaccines, many of which contain ethylmercury from the preservative thimerosal. Receiving them may result in mercury exposures exceeding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended maximum levels.

World Mercury Project is deeply concerned that the risks of getting mercury-containing seasonal influenza vaccines may outweigh the benefits for pregnant women, infants and children. Mercury is known to be highly toxic to brain tissue and can impact critical stages of brain development.

A 2017 CDC study links miscarriage to flu vaccines, particularly in the first trimester. Pregnant women vaccinated in the 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 flu seasons had two times greater odds of having a miscarriage within 28 days of receiving the vaccine. In women who had received the H1N1 vaccine in the previous flu season, the odds of having a miscarriage within 28 days were 7.7 times greater than in women who did not receive a flu shot during their pregnancy.

A study published in 2016 that looked at the safety of flu vaccines found a moderately elevated risk for major birth defects in infants born to women who had received a flu vaccine during the first trimester of pregnancy. A study published in 2017 found an elevated risk of autism spectrum disorders in children whose mothers had a first trimester flu shot.

Flu vaccine administration is documented to cause an inflammatory response in pregnant women. Recent research found inflammation during pregnancy is associated with the development of autism spectrum disorders.

A large study in approximately 50,000 pregnant women over five flu seasons found no difference in the risk for developing influenza or similar illnesses between those who received the influenza vaccine during pregnancy and those who did not.

An independent 2014 review found no randomized controlled trials assessing vaccination in pregnant women. It states, “The only evidence available comes from observational studies with modest methodological quality. On this basis, vaccination shows very limited effects.”

Know the Facts

In 2004, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated that one in every six women has mercury blood levels that could pose a risk to an unborn child.

2017-2018 Flu Vaccines

TABLE 1. Influenza vaccines — United States, 2017–18 influenza season*

Influenza vaccines table 1Influenza vaccines table 2Influenza vaccines table 3

*NR = not relevant (does not contain thimerosal).

If You Are Pregnant or Have Small Children . . .

  • If you decide to vaccinate, insist on mercury–free influenza vaccines for yourself and your children and do not get a flu vaccine the same day as other vaccines.
  • Do not let yourself be pressured into receiving a vaccine that you don’t want; should you choose to vaccinate, insist that your doctor or pharmacist find you a mercury-free vaccine.
  • If mercury-free vaccines are unavailable, look at the evidence and decide if the influenza virus is a significant concern for your family.
  • Also, consider the evidence regarding the effectiveness of the flu vaccine in actually preventing influenza. For information visit www.summaries.cochrane.org

More Vaccine Facts to Know…

All vaccines, with or without mercury, pose health risks. However, the influenza vaccine is of great concern, as many brands contain high levels of mercury in their multi-dose vials. Be sure to read package inserts for any vaccine prior to getting vaccinated.

According to flu vaccine package inserts,

Safety and effectiveness has not been established in pregnant women or nursing mothers and should only be given to a pregnant woman if clearly needed.

A study that compared children who received flu vaccine to those who did not found no significant difference in the rate of influenza between the active and placebo groups. It also found that the group of children who received the flu vaccine had a 4.4 times relative risk of non-influenza respiratory tract infections.

An Australian study found one in every 110 children under the age of 5 had convulsions following vaccination with the FLUVAX H1N1 vaccine in 2009. Additional research found a spike in cases of narcolepsy in children associated with the H1N1 vaccine.

A review in the medical journal The Lancet found a lack of health benefits from influenza vaccine in children under two along with significantly increased rates of vaccine-related adverse events.

Tips for Preventing the Flu

Simple techniques such as avoiding those with flu-like illnesses, eating a healthy diet and good hand washing can prevent many cases of flu. If you do contract influenza, optimizing vitamin D levels, fluid intake and rest can boost immune function.

Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this eBook, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.

eBook – Available for immediate download.

Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

thumbnail Are Government Nutrition Recommendations Killing Us?

Oct 13th 2017, 21:38, by Admin – Orissa

A brand new study suggests the answer may be yes.

The study, published in The Lancet, is the first major study to look at all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease and nutrition. Here are just two of the major takeaways

  • High carb diets are killing many of us around the world. The study tracked over 135,000 people aged between 35 and 70 from 18 countries; those on a low fat/high carb diet had an increased risk of early death compared to those on a lower carb/higher fat diet.
  • Raw and cooked vegetables are not created equal. Broadly speaking, the study showed that consumption of raw vegetables was more protective against cardiovascular disease than cooked vegetables. As our colleagues at ANH-International point out, many phytochemicals, vitamins, and other nutrients are heat-sensitive and may be damaged by heat.

These findings, particularly on fat versus carbs, echo our criticisms of the government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans that were released in 2016. Those guidelines encourage Americans to reduce consumption of saturated fat, based on the outdated notion that fat leads to heart disease.

Don’t wait until 2020 when the US government next updates its Dietary Guidelines. History tells us the revised guidelines won’t change much. Pressure from Big Food, Big Ag, Big Biotech and their revolving doors with the USDA, NIH and FDA will likely still override the state-of-the-art of nutritional science. 

The bottom line is that government should not be in charge of doling out nutrition advice. As the latest research suggests, government advice is likely killing us.

We’re going to continue doing everything we can with our medical and scientific partners and collaborators to influence decision-making and expose the corruption of science.

But in the meantime, those wanting to use food to help live longer and healthier lives should check out ANH-International’s Food4Health guidelines for some excellent nutritional guidance.

Time For A Flu Vaccine? Fugetaboutit!

by Dr. Brownstein’s
Holistic Medicine

The flu and cold season is upon us.  I have already seen numerous patients suffering with upper respiratory illnesses and even weathered my first bout.

The CDC and the Powers-That-Be would have you believe that you should receive the influenza vaccine on a yearly basis. (1) They claim that the flu vaccine can save thousands of lives.  Of course, I have written to you many times that there is not a single study that has ever supported the claim that the flu vaccine saves any lives.  In fact, the history of the flu vaccine shows clearly that it fails nearly all who take it.

A recent article in Family Practice News (September 1, 2017, p. 10) was titled, “Inactivated quadrivalent influenza vaccine safe, effective.”  The article states, “An intramuscular inactivated quadrivalent influenza vaccine reduced the risk of laboratory-confirmed influenza by up to 69% in previously unvaccinated children aged 6-35 months in a large randomized trial, reported at the annual meeting of the European Society for Paediartic (sic) Infectious Diseases.”

Wow. I have studied the influenza vaccine for years and I know that there is not one study that has shown the flu vaccine very effective for preventing the flu.  Is this something new?

I pulled the study and read it. Here’s what I found.

The study included 5,806 healthy 6-35-months-olds.  More than 5,400 were randomized to two doses of the quadrivalent vaccine (Fluzone) or placebo .  The trial was conducted in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa between March 2014 and September 2016.  The incidence of any laboratory-confirmed strain of influenza illness during the period from 14 days post-vaccination to the end of the flu season was 1.01% in the Fluzone group and 3.28% in those who received the placebo.

How did they get the 69% efficacy rate?  They used the relative risk statistical analysis by simply dividing 1.01 into 3.28.  When I lecture to health care professionals about statistics, I tell them that the relative risk analysis is used by the Big Pharma Cartel to make a poorly performing drug or therapy look better than it actually is.   Relative risk analysis should never be used when making clinical decisions about whether to prescribe a drug or therapy.  Sadly, most doctors and other health care professionals have no knowledge about how to properly review a medical study because they do not understand statistics.

The more accurate way to determine the effectiveness of the flu vaccine in this study (and all other studies as well) is to use the absolute risk difference.  In the Fluzone study, the absolute risk difference between the Fluzone and the placebo group was 2.27% (3.28%-1.01%). That means that Fluzone was nearly 98% ineffective in preventing the flu as there was only a 2.27% benefit received for those who were vaccinated. In other words, this study showed that injecting Fluzone failed nearly 98%–they received no protection from the flu.

Folks, this is another study showing a flu vaccine failing the vast majority who receive it.  This study is consistent with other flu vaccine studies.  Why would anyone prescribe–much less take–a therapy that fails nearly 98% who receive it?

Flu season is approaching.

Should you get a flu vaccine that fails the vast majority–98%–of the time?

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?

Medical_Doctors_Opposed_to_Forced_Vaccinations_Should_Their_Views_be_Silence_sm

eBook – Available for immediate download.

One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

Whooping Cough Reemergence Traced Back to Vaccine Failure and Flawed Assumptions

by Dr. Mercola

The pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine is included as a component in “combination” shots that include tetanus and diphtheria (DPT, DTaP, Tdap) and some pertussis-containing shots now also include polio, hepatitis B and/or Haemophilus Influenza B (Hib). Whole cell pertussis vaccines in DPT, used in the U.S. from 1949 until the late ‘90s, were estimated to be between 30 and 85 percent effective, depending upon the type of DPT and vaccine manufacturer, with protection lasting only two to five years. [1]

The DPT vaccine was highly reactive and carried a high risk of serious allergic reactions and brain inflammation leading to permanent brain damage, as detailed in the groundbreaking 1985 book DPT: A Shot in the Dark, co-authored by Barbara Loe Fisher, cofounder of the National Vaccine Information Center.

DTaP shots — which contain the less reactive acellular pertussis vaccine licensed for infants in the United States in 1996 — are given five times to children under age 6, with additional Tdap booster doses recommended for teenagers and adults. Since the late 1980s, CDC data shows that kindergarten children in the U.S. have maintained a high vaccination rate with four to five DPT shots and, today, more than 94 percent of kindergarten children have had four to five acellular DTaP vaccines.

Very high pertussis vaccination rates in the U.S. and many other countries for the past several decades should be more than sufficient to achieve vaccine-acquired herd immunity, if the theory of vaccine-acquired herd immunity is correct. [2] Yet, despite high vaccine coverage, statistics show reported whooping cough cases continue to rise. So, what’s really going on?

Studies Show Pertussis Vaccine Doesn’t Work

Scientific findings suggest whooping cough vaccines — both whole cell and acellular — fail to provide adequate protection against infection and the transmission of infection. There are indications that subclinical and undiagnosed pertussis infections have been occurring since the early 1980s among both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons.

Now, a recently published scientific study [3,4] confirms the acellular whooping cough vaccine does not work as expected — and that the continued circulation of the disease can be traced back to the vaccine itself. Unfortunately, the study authors still maintain the false notion that the older, more toxic whole cell pertussis vaccines were more effective at preventing the spread of whooping cough than the current acellular versions. According to the authors:

Fundamental aspects of pertussis epidemiology and immunology were left unexplained following the introduction of wP [whole cell] vaccines in the 1950s. The wP vaccines worked: disease rates plummeted, mortality fell, and the pertussis problem appeared largely solved. The fact that we did not know then, and still do not know now, how wP vaccines did this was inconvenient and has remained problematic …

Had carriage studies been conducted … then this might have provided supportive evidence that infections were being blocked. But carriage studies were not done. Rather, it was assumed that because wP vaccines appeared to confer herd immunity, they therefore blocked carriage. In hindsight and in light of subsequent evidence, that assumption was probably correct.

It was subsequently assumed that aP [acellular] vaccines, most of which include combinations of adhesion protein antigens … that enable B. pertussis to bind to respiratory epithelium, would also block carriage. But, while logical, that assumption appears to have been incorrect.

Whooping Cough Resurgence Traced Back to Vaccine Failure and Flawed Assumptions

In a nutshell, the authors of the new pertussis study blame the apparent global resurgence of whooping cough cases on the failure of acellular pertussis vaccines, which were licensed for infants in the U.S. in 1996 after parents in Japan in the 1970s, and parents in the U.S. in the early 1980s, lobbied for a purified pertussis vaccine to cut down on the numbers of children being brain damaged and dying from DPT shots.

The authors allege that acellular pertussis vaccines, which demonstrated superior safety and effectiveness in prelicensure clinical trials conducted in the 1990s, do not work the way older whole cell pertussis vaccines did, and that it is this difference that is causing reported cases of whooping cough to increase. In 2014, there were more than 32,000 reported cases of whooping cough in the U.S., most of which occurred in vaccinated populations.

However, evidence shows pertussis deaths dropped by 75 percent between 1922 and 1948, a year before the introduction of DPT in 1949. In 1948, the mortality rate was less than 1 pertussis death per 100,000, and this rate has not been surpassed since. [5,6] So, the plummeting disease and mortality rates noted in the recently featured pertussis review were not the direct result of the whooping cough vaccine.

The authors allege that, while both acellular and whole cell pertussis vaccines may inhibit symptomatic disease (the actual coughing fits), the older whole cell vaccines to a large degree also appeared to block the spread of infection, while acellular vaccines do not as efficiently prevent disease transmission.

However, when you take a much closer look at this assumption — that only acellular vaccines produce asymptomatic carriers capable of spreading the disease while whole cell vaccines are incapable of doing the same thing — the scientific evidence demonstrates that the assumption is incorrect.

The paper’s authors cite evidence that pertussis transmission “readily occurs” between infected animals vaccinated with an acellular pertussis vaccine and nearby uninfected and unvaccinated animals. As noted in the paper:

Disease among infants <3 months old (i.e. too young to have been vaccinated) increased sharply in the late 1970s, coincident with declines in wP coverage rates. As wP coverage improved in the 1980s, pertussis incidence fell, including among young infants. Surprisingly, though, the infant rates stabilized in the 100–200 cases/100,000 infants/year range, even as disease among older age groups fell almost to zero.

Since those infants are unlikely to be their own reservoir for infection, a more plausible explanation was transmission from a sustained pool of asymptomatic older individuals in the population. This also emphasizes that even very high rates of wP vaccination may fail to completely interrupt pertussis transmission.

However, a seminal 2014 infant baboon study published in PNAS gave strong evidence that both whole cell and acelullar vaccines are incapable of preventing infection or transmission of infection. The scientists found that whether baboons were vaccinated with whole cell or acellular vaccines, they were all capable of being infected, sometimes asymptomatically, and transmitting infection to other baboons.

The only difference was that baboons that had previously recovered from pertussis, or had been given whole cell pertussis vaccine, were infectious for a shorter period of time than those vaccinated with acellular vaccines. [7]

Both Pertussis Vaccines Have Been Proven Ineffective

While the admission that acellular pertussis vaccines don’t work may be shocking to some, it is important to point out that this paper seriously minimizes the evidence for the ineffectiveness of whole cell pertussis vaccines.

As detailed in Fisher’s fully referenced 2016 article, “Pertussis Microbe Outsmarts the Vaccines as Experts Argue About Why,” [8] scientific evidence dating back decades shows that the whole cell pertussis vaccine in DPT shots ALSO failed to prevent infection and transmission of infection that could be spread to vaccinated persons by carriers who were asymptomatic or had few symptoms. [9]

This article, published on Mercola.com, was the first in-depth analysis written for the lay public to make this important point. The B. pertussis organism actually began evolving to evade whole cell pertussis vaccine soon after DPT was introduced in 1949, developing new strains that produce more pertussis toxin to suppress the human immune system and cause more serious disease. Today, the pertussis strains included in the vaccine no longer match the pertussis strains causing the disease.

Evidence also shows that subclinical, asymptomatic pertussis capable of being transmitted to vaccinated and unvaccinated alike has been circulating for several decades — regardless of which vaccine has been in use.

Doctors assume that when children and adults have been vaccinated and present with mild respiratory symptoms, they do not have whooping cough, and so cases of pertussis have been systematically underdiagnosed in vaccinated persons for decades. By perpetuating the myth that whole cell pertussis vaccine did in fact work, it opens the door for those who want to simply reintroduce the older, more toxic whole cell pertussis vaccine for infants and children. As noted by Fisher in 2016:

When there are a lot of people with silent asymptomatic pertussis infections, it is impossible to know who is a carrier and who is not, which means that reported cases of pertussis are just the tip of a very big iceberg. It also means that articles blaming whooping cough cases on unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children are nothing more than wishful thinking and scapegoating.

Bottom Line: Both natural and vaccine-acquired immunity is temporary and while vaccination may prevent clinical symptoms, it does not block infection, carriage or transmission. If vaccinated people can get silently infected and transmit infection without showing any symptoms — even after getting four to six pertussis shots — then pertussis vaccine acquired “herd immunity” is an illusion and always has been.

In other words, the whole cell pertussis vaccine was no more effective than the acellular pertussis in blocking infection and transmission of infection. So, while the featured paper offers some important admissions, it doesn’t go far enough.

Vaccine manufacturers selling vaccines, medical trade groups promoting vaccines and public health officials responsible for regulating and making policy for vaccines clearly do not want to be held responsible for the failure of both DPT and DTaP/TdaP vaccines. At the same time, the failure of the whooping cough vaccine has become so obvious it cannot be swept under the rug much longer.

In that respect, this paper is a timely one, providing the perfect message for propagandists: The more toxic whole cell pertussis vaccine had a superior effectiveness compared to the less toxic acellular vaccine and should not have been replaced. But this is simply a way of trying to deflect attention away from the fact that vaccines, including pertussis vaccine, not only cause harm but also fail to work as advertised.

Public Distrust in Vaccine Safety Is Becoming a Public Relations Crisis

The study authors do recognize that by not openly and honestly addressing vaccine failures, public distrust will only continue to grow. As noted by the authors, “We are approaching a critical decision point … The resurgence of pertussis in the [acellular] vaccine era is evolving into a slow-moving global public health crisis,” and that “with the public’s trust in vaccines waning, this has also become a public relations crisis.”

At present, infant deaths associated with pertussis infection are at a 70-year high, despite the fact that uptake of pertussis vaccines is higher than ever. According to the authors, this casts “doubt on whether further increasing aP vaccine coverage can ever compensate for their fundamental limitations.” Lead author Dr. Christopher Gill, infectious disease specialist and associate professor of global health at Boston University added: [10]

This disease is back because we didn’t really understand how our immune defenses against whooping cough worked, and did not understand how the vaccines needed to work to prevent it. Instead we layered assumptions upon assumptions, and now find ourselves in the uncomfortable position of admitting that we may made [sic] some crucial errors.

They also stress the importance of making sure that any future pertussis vaccines can clearly demonstrate ability to both prevent clinical disease AND prevent the transmission of infection. But, unfortunately, by perpetuating the false idea that whole cell pertussis vaccine was able to prevent transmission, we may actually end up taking a huge step backward. As noted by Fisher: [11]

The whole cell DPT vaccine used until the late 1990s in the U.S. was an extremely reactive vaccine. DPT vaccine reactions like fever, pain and irritability were experienced by between 50 and 85 percent of children and seizures and collapse/shock reactions followed 1 in 875 DPT shots. [12,13] Brain inflammation was reported following 1 in 110,000 DPT shots with permanent brain damage after 1 in 310,000 DPT shots. [14]

The Problem With Modern Pertussis Vaccines

Shortcomings aside, the paper does make a few other points of note. In summary, they discovered that:

Contributing factors such as detection bias, waning immunity and evolutionary shifts in the pertussis’ genome alone cannot fully explain the epidemiologic data. Importantly, vaccine refusal was one hypothesis considered as a cause behind the resurgence of whooping cough that was ultimately discounted. In other words, they agreed that reemergence of whooping cough cannot be blamed on parents who opt not to vaccinate their children.

According to the authors: “[G]iven that U.S. pertussis vaccine uptake is so high on average, the impact of vaccine-refusing communities must, by definition, be small and largely limited to those communities. It is difficult to see how this could significantly affect the overall increases seen across the general population in the U.S.”

Ever since the pertussis scare of summer 2010, the attacks on religious and conscientious belief exemptions have intensified and spread across the U.S., and it’s completely unwarranted.

The practice of “cocooning,” where Tdap is given to all household contacts of a newborn to prevent whooping cough in the infant does not work. As noted by the authors, “Cocooning is logical but presupposes that aP vaccines prevent asymptomatic infections.

Unfortunately, several controlled trials of cocooning in the U.S. found no efficacy. These counterintuitive results conflict with expectations if aP vaccines block carriage and transmission but fit well if aP vaccines only prevent disease but have more limited ability to block infections.”

Th1 Versus Th2 Immune Responses

To understand why vaccine-induced immunity is so short-lived compared to naturally-acquired immunity, you have to understand how your immune system works. Your immune system is divided into two different parts, each of which fights disease in your body in its own way, and the second of them is further subdivided into two arms with separate immune functions:

1. The innate immune system, which is always at the ready and a first-line defense against foreign invaders

2. The adaptive immune system, which in turn consists of two separate arms

  1. Th1, commonly known as the cell mediated arm
  2. Th2, known as the humoral or antibody arm, i.e., the part of your immune system that produces antibodies

Most vaccines, including acellular pertussis vaccines, preferentially stimulate Th2 — a fact that other research suggests may compromise your immune function in the long term and increase your risk of cancer. Vaccine efficacy is determined by measuring antibodies, which is a sign of humoral immunity activity. The benefit of measuring antibodies as a means of assessing vaccine effectiveness is that it can be easily determined by drawing blood samples.

If specific vaccine-induced antibodies are present, the person is presumed to be immune to that infection and protected because vaccine developers and regulators have maintained that if vaccines stimulate antibody production, it is a demonstration of vaccine-acquired immunity that is protective against infection and transmission of infection.

The theory goes back to the early days when it was believed that the humoral (antibody) arm of the immune system was the most important part of stimulating immunity. There’s a problem with this theory, however.

Research reveals that individuals who, due to a genetic variation, are unable to generate antibody production, actually recover from infectious illness just as well as those able to make normal antibodies. [15] They also usually have protection in the future upon re-exposure.

This demonstrates the importance of the Th1 arm of immunity, and suggests humoral immunity may only play a secondary role in natural resistance against targeted “vaccine-preventable” diseases. This, and the fact that vaccines fail to confer lifelong immunity, suggests that having a cell mediated (Th1) response is in fact necessary to confer robust, long-lasting immunity.

Today, vaccine manufacturers are developing genetically engineered vaccines and adding novel vaccine adjuvants that hyperstimulate immune responses in an attempt to generate cell mediated immunity, not just humoral immunity.

A Timeline of Whooping Cough Failures and Science

Since 2011, I’ve reported studies showing the whooping cough vaccine is failing, and the many reasons why. Here’s a quick summary of such findings. For more information, follow the hyperlink provided for each year.

2011

A 2011 investigation found the pertussis bacteria mutated nearly 20 years prior. Newer strains, such as the strain called P3, produces more pertussis toxin and/or have evolved to become vaccine resistant. Another Bordetella organism called parapertussis — for which there is no vaccine — can also cause symptoms of whooping cough, and this too is contributing to rising rates of infection.

Canadian researchers also published evidence showing “cocooning” is grossly ineffective. They determined at least 1 million parental immunizations were needed to prevent a single infant death from whooping cough. [16]

Research published in 2012 found that 81 percent of 2010 California whooping cough cases in people under 18 occurred in those fully up to date on the whooping cough vaccine. [17] It also confirmed that acellular pertussis vaccines only stimulate a type of immunity that lasts about three years at best.

In an article published in the journal Pediatrics, Dr. James D. Cherry also revealed that estimates for pertussis vaccine efficacy [18] have been significantly inflated due to the case definitions adopted by the World Health Organization in 1991, which required laboratory confirmation and 21 days or more of paroxysmal cough.

All less severe cases were excluded. As a result of these updated case definitions, the efficacy of the vaccine Infantrix was boosted from 71 to 84 percent. A New England Journal of Medicine study [19] also reported that after the fifth dose of DTaP, the odds of acquiring whooping cough INCREASED by an average of 42 percent per year.

An infant baboon study [20] led by U.S. Food and Drug Administration researchers showed that while the pertussis vaccine in DPT and DtaP reduces serious clinical disease symptoms, it does not eliminate infection or transmission of B. pertussis whooping cough.

The study’s lead author Tod Merkel explained that when exposed to B. pertussis after recently getting vaccinated, you could be an asymptomatic carrier and infect others, adding, [21] “When you’re newly vaccinated, you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population.” Another study [22] published in the BMJ found the Tdap booster shot is only 53 to 64 percent effective.

A British study showed that of the 20 percent of children diagnosed with whooping cough, 18 percent were fully vaccinated against it. Another study, [23] which analyzed the genomes of whooping cough bacteria, found that the “acellular vaccine antigen encoding genes are evolving at higher rates than other surface protein encoding genes,” again suggesting the disease is not being prevented with mandatory, mass vaccination programs.

2015:

Noting the reemergence of pertussis as a major public health concern despite very high vaccine uptake, a 2015 paper addressed the scientific and practical problems of developing an optimal booster vaccination schedule. According to the authors, “Our results argue that booster vaccination schedules developed based on misdiagnosis of the problem are likely to be epidemiologically ineffective and economically costly.”

Here, the four hypotheses presented for the rise in prevalence were: insufficient vaccine coverage; frequent primary vaccine failure; waning of vaccine-derived protection and vaccine “leakiness” (when a vaccinated individual somehow becomes infected upon exposure). Significant variations were noted in the proposed booster schedule depending on which of these scenarios were chosen as the basis for the algorithm.

2016

A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) [24] report highlighted the transmission of whooping cough among vaccinated children. The outbreak occurred at a Tallahassee, Florida, preschool in 2013. Twenty-six students between the ages of 1 and 5 contracted whooping cough, as did two staff and 11 family members.

The majority of the students were fully vaccinated against whooping cough according to the CDC’s recommended schedule. In one particular classroom in which all students had received the pertussis vaccine, 50 percent still developed whopping cough. According to the authors:

This outbreak raises concerns about vaccine effectiveness in this preschool age group and reinforces the idea that recent pertussis vaccination should not dissuade physicians from diagnosing, testing or treating persons with compatible illness for pertussis … Reports of genetic changes in circulating B. pertussis have raised concern that this organism could be adapting to vaccine-induced immunity …

Questions Abound

The new pertussis study authors attempted to answer a number of pressing and unresolved questions about the whooping cough vaccine in their paper, such as:

  • Why is whooping cough increasing in the U.S. despite record rates of pertussis vaccine uptake?
  • Why has vaccinating household contacts of newborns (so-called “cocooning”) failed to prevent pertussis among infants?
  • Does B. pertussis exist in an asymptomatic infection state?
  • Can pertussis be transmitted from asymptomatic individuals?
  • Do pertussis vaccines interfere with transmission processes and, if so, how?

All of these questions have been raised in the past, and a number of scientific studies have offered compelling clues to their answers. Unfortunately, concerns have been largely swept under the proverbial rug, and the “solution” has been to simply add booster shots. Based on the conclusions in this new paper, the real problem — the fact that the B. pertussis bacteria have evolved to survive vaccine pressure and will continue to do so as long as we insist on mass-vaccinations — may well continue to be ignored.

How Great a Concern Is Whooping Cough?

Whooping cough can indeed be serious, especially for newborns and babies whose tiny airways can become clogged with the sticky mucus produced by the toxins in B. pertussis bacteria. That said, the vast majority of children and adults get through a bout with whooping cough without complications, and it’s important for them to get proper nutrition, hydration and rest to support the healing process that sometimes can take as long as two to three months before coughing ends.

For a list of natural remedies that can help someone with whooping cough move more comfortably through the healing process, please see “Whooping Cough Vaccine Not as Effective as Thought.” Similarly, while some children and adults get pertussis-containing vaccines and experience no complications, others suffer serious reactions and injuries, or have died after getting vaccinated.

It is well known, for instance, that whole cell and acellular pertussis vaccine in DPT and DTaP/Tdap vaccines may cause brain inflammation and permanent brain damage in both children and adults.

If you want to learn more about vaccines, consider picking up a copy of Neil Z. Miller’s book, “Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Summarized for Parents and Researchers” — a book written in response to the common refrain that ‘there are no studies showing vaccines are unsafe or ineffective.’ In it, he reviews the concerns about vaccine safety and efficacy raised by 400 peer-reviewed published studies.

Protect Your Right to Informed Consent and Defend Vaccine Exemptions

With all the uncertainty surrounding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, it’s critical to protect your right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone in America stand up and fight to protect and expand vaccine informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws. The best way to do this is to get personally involved with your state legislators and educating the leaders in your community.

THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY.

National vaccine policy recommendations are made at the federal level but vaccine laws are made at the state level. It is at the state level where your action to protect your vaccine choice rights can have the greatest impact.

It is critical for EVERYONE to get involved now in standing up for the legal right to make voluntary vaccine choices in America because those choices are being threatened by lobbyists representing drug companies, medical trade associations, and public health officials, who are trying to persuade legislators to strip all vaccine exemptions from public health laws.

Signing up for NVIC’s free Advocacy Portal at www.NVICAdvocacy.org gives you immediate, easy access to your own state legislators on your smart phone or computer so you can make your voice heard. You will be kept up-to-date on the latest state bills threatening your vaccine choice rights and get practical, useful information to help you become an effective vaccine choice advocate in your own community.

Also, when national vaccine issues come up, you will have the up-to-date information and call to action items you need at your fingertips. So please, as your first step, sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal.

Share Your Story With the Media and People You Know

If you or a family member has suffered a serious vaccine reaction, injury, or death, please talk about it. If we don’t share information and experiences with one another, everybody feels alone and afraid to speak up. Write a letter to the editor if you have a different perspective on a vaccine story that appears in your local newspaper. Make a call in to a radio talk show that is only presenting one side of the vaccine story.

I must be frank with you; you have to be brave because you might be strongly criticized for daring to talk about the “other side” of the vaccine story. Be prepared for it and have the courage to not back down. Only by sharing our perspective and what we know to be true about vaccination, will the public conversation about vaccination open up so people are not afraid to talk about it.

We cannot allow the drug companies and medical trade associations funded by drug companies or public health officials promoting forced use of a growing list of vaccines to dominate the conversation about vaccination.

The vaccine injured cannot be swept under the carpet and treated like nothing more than “statistically acceptable collateral damage” of national one-size-fits-all mandatory vaccination policies that put way too many people at risk for injury and death. We shouldn’t be treating people like guinea pigs instead of human beings.

Connect With Your Doctor or Find a New One That Will Listen and Care

If your pediatrician or doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your child unless you agree to get vaccines you don’t want, I strongly encourage you to have the courage to find another doctor. Harassment, intimidation, and refusal of medical care is becoming the modus operandi of the medical establishment in an effort to stop the change in attitude of many parents about vaccinations after they become truly educated about health and vaccination. However, there is hope.

At least 15 percent of young doctors recently polled admit that they’re starting to adopt a more individualized approach to vaccinations in direct response to the vaccine safety concerns of parents.

It is good news that there is a growing number of smart young doctors, who prefer to work as partners with parents in making personalized vaccine decisions for children, including delaying vaccinations or giving children fewer vaccines on the same day or continuing to provide medical care for those families, who decline use of one or more vaccines.

So take the time to locate a doctor, who treats you with compassion and respect, and is willing to work with you to do what is right for your child.

eBook – Available for immediate download.

One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this eBook, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.

eBook – Available for immediate download.

Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

thumbnail Another Mass Shooting, Another Psychiatric Drug—27 Drug Warnings and 1,531 Cases of Drug Related Shootings

Oct 11th 2017, 21:25, by Admin – Orissa

mass-shooting-psychiatric-drugs2

The drug Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was prescribed, Valium, is a benzodiazepine documented by several studies to cause violence, aggression, homicidal ideation and suicide risk or attempts.  New court records obtained by CNN indicate Paddock had been prescribed the drug as far back as 2013

Twenty-seven drug regulatory agency warnings cite psychiatric drug side effects of mania, psychosis, violence and homicidal ideation; 1,531 cases of psychiatric drug induced homicide/homicidal ideation have been reported to the US FDA; 65 high profile cases of mass shootings/murder have been committed by individuals under the influence of these drugs, yet there has never been a federal investigation into the link between seemingly senseless acts of violence and the use of mind-altering psychotropic drugs.

by CCHR – International
The Mental Health Watchdog

On October 3rd, from a Las Vegas Mandalay Bay hotel room, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire upon a crowd of people, killing 59 and wounding more than 500 in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Almost immediately the press began speculating as to a possible motive in the shooting; rumored ties to terrorist organizations came and went, dispelled by law enforcement as groundless. No criminal records or ties to radical organizations were uncovered by the press. Yet amidst the speculation immediately following the shooting, none of the journalists attending the live broadcast press conference posed the question: Was there any indication the shooter was under the influence of a mind-altering prescribed drug?

Considering that mainstream media rarely pursues this line of questioning, that law enforcement isn’t required to reveal it, and that the psychiatric-pharmaceutical industry certainly doesn’t want to address it, the task often falls to individual journalists to dig up relevant facts.

Such was the case with Stephen Paddock.

Paul Harasim from the Las Vegas Review-Journal obtained records from the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program showing Paddock was prescribed 50 10-milligram diazepam (Valium) tablets on June 21st, as well as 50 10-milligram tablets in 2016.

The drug Paddock was prescribed, diazepam, is a benzodiazepine documented by several studies to cause violence, aggression, homicidal ideation and suicide risk or attempts.

paddock-250

Court records obtained by CNN indicate Paddock had been prescribed mind-altering drugs as far back as 2013

Now CNN has found that Paddock was prescribed the drug as far back as 2013.

In a 97-page 2013 court document exclusively obtained and released by CNN, Paddock himself admitted to being prescribed Valium when he was deposed as part of a civil suit he filed against the Cosmopolitan Hotel, after slipping on a walkway in 2011. According to  CNN, the 2013 document reveals Paddock stating he was prescribed Valium for “anxiousness” and when asked whether he had a good relationship with the doctor who prescribed him the pills, he responded, “He’s like on retainer, I call it, I guess. It means I pay a fee yearly … I have good access to him.” CNN also notes that “Rage, aggressiveness and irritability are among the possible side effects of taking diazepam — better known as Valium, according to a manufacturer of the drug. It is not known when Paddock last took the drug.”

The fact is psychiatric drugs are documented by 27 international drug regulatory agency warnings and 16 published medical studies to cause side effects including mania, hostility, violence and even homicidal ideation.  And while not everyone taking the drug will experience these particular side effects, what the warnings prove is that a percentage of the population will.

Furthermore according to the FDA’s MedWatch reporting system for drug side effects, over a 10-year period, the FDA received 1,531 cases of homicidal ideation/homicide attributed to psychiatric drugs, 40% of which were reported by medical professionals. The FDA admits that only 1-10% of drug side effects are ever reported to MedWatch, so taking a medium range of 5%, the number could easily be 30,620 cases of homicidal ideation/homicide attributed to psychiatric drugs.

Regarding the concept that psychiatric drugs could not have been a contributing factor in a case where the perpetrator was involved in extensive planning or preparations, we look to the definition of “homicidal ideation,” a similar concept to the  “suicidal ideation” black box warning on antidepressant drugs:

Homicidal ideation:  “Thoughts about homicide. They may range from globally aggressive thoughts to a specific lethal plan with available means to carry it out.”

Emergency Psychiatry journal

There have been 65 high profile acts of senseless violence, including mass school shootings, mass stabbings, and even the intentional crashing of a commercial airplane, committed by individuals taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs, resulting in 357 dead and 336 wounded. Drug proponents argue that there are thousands of shootings and acts of violence that have not been correlated to psychiatric drugs, and that is exactly the point. They have neither been confirmed nor refuted to have been connected to psychiatric drugs, as law enforcement is not required to investigate or report on prescribed drugs linked to violence, and media rarely pose the question.

Newyork-1-300x188

New York legislation introduced in 2000 sought to require law enforcement to report psychotropic drug use in cases of violent crime

The New York State Senate recognized the lack of reporting correlating mind-altering psychiatric drugs to both suicide and violence as far back as 2000, when the senate introduced a bill which would “require police to report to the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS), certain crimes and suicides committed by persons using psychotropic drugs,” citing “a large body of scientific research establishing a connection between violence and suicide and the use of psychotropic drugs.”

Unfortunately that bill stalled out in the finance committee, yet if that bill had passed, a reporting system would be in place to determine the extent to which violence is committed by those under the influence of mind-altering prescribed drugs.

A cursory review of the 27 international drug regulatory warnings, the tens of thousands of cases of  medical personnel citing psychiatric drug side effects of  homicide, aggression, violence, mania and psychosis, and the 65 high profile acts of senseless violence committed by individuals either taking or withdrawing from these drugs, more than meets the criteria for a federal investigation.

With millions of Americans being prescribed psychiatric drugs, it’s apparent not everyone will experience violent reactions to the drugs, besides which, violence is only one of many documented side effects of psychiatric drugs.   But what the drug regulatory agency warnings confirm, is that a percentage of the population will. And no one knows who will be next.

Some examples of high-profile cases where the individual was under the influence of such drugs include:

While there is never one simple explanation for what drives a human being to commit such unspeakable acts of senseless violence, one common denominator has surfaced in a percentage of cases—prescribed psychiatric drugs which are documented to cause mania, psychosis, violence, suicide and in some cases,  homicidal ideation.  Those with a vested interest will continue to champion the use of such drugs, as the psychiatric-pharmaceutical drug industry rakes in $80 billion a year through psychiatric drug sales alone.

It is long past time that government healthcare agencies launch an investigation.  Moreover the New York bill which would have required law enforcement to report any use of mind-altering psychiatric drugs prescribed to those who committed violent criminal acts should be reintroduced.

None can argue against the fact that disclosure would serve the public interest. Except those with a vested interest in keeping the public in the dark.

UPDATE 10/11/2017

Since this story went to press, Health Impact News has learned that Nhyariah is still being given doses of morphine, against her mother’s wishes. Jasmin Mack spoke with someone at the hospital who confided to her that the records show that she was given a dose of morphine yesterday, even while the staff has been telling her that they stopped it when she made the request Saturday.

She was told that Nhyariah’s heart is still declining, but the last echocardiogram on her heart was done on September 28. So how do they know?

It is clear that Nhyariah is having a difficult time breathing, but former army medic and advocate Sherrie Saunders explains that the morphine will do that to her, with her impaired lung function.

by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff

According to doctors at Atlanta’s Egleston Children’s Hospital at Emory, ten-year-old Nhyariah Mack is on death’s door. Her mother Jasmin Mack has been told that she could die at any moment because her heart is failing her. There has been recent talk of a possible heart transplant.

Just before the heart transplant was suggested, Jasmin says that the hospital risk management team offered her a very large sum of money as a settlement if she would just walk away, leaving her daughter with the hospital and the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS), and stop talking about her daughter’s situation.

If that meant that her child would live, Jasmin might have taken the settlement. She said that the only way that she would consider it would be if they would send Nhyariah to the Pensacola hospital that had already offered to give a second opinion. As a mother, her daughter’s life means more to her than anything in the world.

When they refused, so did she. She believes that they are more interested in her organs and the research they can use her for than they are in her. Nhyariah has an extremely rare chromosomal disorder – Trisomy 9 mosaic. There are just over a hundred people worldwide who have that diagnosis, making Nhyariah a prime target for those who would like to use her as a lab rat for medical research.

Unfortunately, Child Protective Services can legally sign for the children in their custody to be used in medical experiments, even without their parents’ knowledge or consent.

See:

Medical Kidnapping in the U.S. – Kidnapping Children for Drug Trials

This has allegedly already happened to Nhyariah. Twice the hospital has allegedly performed experimental surgeries on her that were not necessary.

Jasmin Mack recently obtained a complete copy of her daughter’s medical records, and she says what she is learning is quite disturbing. As she reads through the documents, she reports that she is finding things that appear to support her suspicions that the hospital and DFCS are interested in medical experimentation on her daughter rather than her health.

During the first one, her tonsils were removed, and, according to hospital records, the tonsils and any other tissue removed may be used for medical research. A DFCS social worker signed the consent for the surgery and for the tissue to be used for research.

The surgery was not at all about improving Nhyariah’s health, and, in fact, the surgery actually caused her harm. One lung collapsed. She is still functioning on only one lung.

Jasmin learned that the most recent surgery was a procedure that the DFCS worker who signed for it knew was unnecessary. One document states that Nhyariah’s odds if she did not have the surgery were still good. In other words, the surgery was not necessary for her health or survival.

See original story and follow up:

Young Girl with Rare Trisomy 9 Condition Medically Kidnapped in Georgia – Life in Danger

Is Georgia DFCS Preventing Nhyariah from Having a Chance to Live?

Things are not adding up. Jasmin told Health Impact News:

I just don’t see the sickness that they are saying she has.

Former Army medic and military vaccine whistleblower Sherrie Saunders agrees. She says:

I don’t either.

Jasmin believes that her daughter has a very good chance of living – IF she can get her transferred to another hospital for a second opinion. However, DFCS currently is standing in the way of a second opinion.

It may well be that DFCS is literally standing in the way of Nhyariah’s chance to live. The hospital where Nhyariah is essentially being held prisoner has repeatedly told her mother that she will likely die soon. They seem bent on keeping her in their grasp until she dies.

The picture that Egleston Hospital paints of Nhyariah’s health is not consistent with what Jasmin is seeing.

On Friday afternoon, October 6, 2017, Saunders joined Brenda Hampton, an environmental activist who fights for clean water, and Health Impact News reporter Terri LaPoint for a visit with Nhyariah and her mother at Egleston Children’s Hospital.

The group expected to see a very sick child barely clinging to life, based on the fact that doctors have been talking about Hospice care for Nhyariah and have told her mother that she could go into cardiac arrest at any time. Instead, what they found was a child who is full of life.

During the first hour and a half of the visit, most of Nhyariah’s face was covered up by a BiPAP machine that helps her to breathe after she lost the use of one lung during the first surgery.

She only has the use of one lung. The other collapsed during the first of 2 unnecessary experimental surgeries performed on her without her mother’s consent after DFCS seized custody of Nhyariah, based on allegations that have since been allegedly proven to be false.

Even with the BiPAP machine, Nhyariah wanted to play with her mom. The only time she showed any signs of discomfort was when the nurse gave her water through her feeding tube. The syringe of water was at least the size of a turkey baster, and the nurse pushed it through pretty quickly, over about ten seconds.

Up until that point, Nhyariah had been happy and playful, her eyes showing the smiles that were hidden by the machine. It was obvious that the water was going through too fast for her and was uncomfortable because she batted at it and tried to push the nurse’s hand away.

During the group’s visit on Friday, the staff moved Nhyariah to her wheelchair and removed the BiPAP machine, replacing it with a nasal cannula for oxygen. She currently has two 2- hour sessions per day with the cannula.

With more freedom of movement, Nhyariah was able to play and interact more. It seemed to take less effort for her to breathe.

She is developmentally delayed, and doesn’t speak much. However, she is quite responsive and took great delight in throwing her toys on the ground and watching her guests pick them up for her. She enjoys blowing kisses with her mother, and the loving bond between the two was readily apparent.

She and her mother appeared to have a language all their own, and several times Nhyariah broke out into giggles of delight.

The entire visit lasted more than 3 hours. Sherrie Saunders, former Army medic, noted that the monitors showed that Nhyariah’s oxygen saturation levels remained very good the entire time she was using the nasal cannula for oxygen.  The numbers stayed between 96 and 100, most commonly 98 and 99.

Are Doctors Motivated by Harvesting Organs for Research?

As we have previously reported, there was never even any mention of heart problems until just a few weeks ago, when a doctor approached Jasmin with the suggestion of a heart transplant.

Could this discussion simply be a ploy to get Nhyariah into another surgery where doctors can take another one of her organs out for research purposes?

Jasmin refused the heart transplant after she saw the cardiologist literally skipping down the hall when she thought that Jasmin might agree to the surgery.

Since that time, doctors have stopped all treatment and told Jasmin to prepare for her seemingly inevitable death. They also prescribed morphine, presumably for the pain of her dislocated hip.

Jasmin was concerned that the morphine could hasten her daughter’s demise, and she requested that the morphine be stopped. She is grateful that the hospital honored that request.

Nhyariah has a feeding tube and sits in a wheelchair – both conditions that she had prior to DFCS or Egleston hospital involvement. She is not currently on any other medications. Her hip causes discomfort, but it is certainly not life-threatening.

She has breathing problems, which were created from the first unnecessary surgery. She has a collapsed lung and has battled pneumonia ever since. That has led to her difficulty in breathing. However, it does not appear to be life-threatening. Indeed, the negative prognosis that Egleston doctors are reporting is unrelated to her lung function.

True Medical Kidnapping for Wanting to Transfer to Another Hospital for a Second Opinion?

Jasmin wants to know – what is really going on? Why has this hospital given her daughter a death sentence? Why won’t they allow her to transfer to another hospital that gives her hope of survival? If she is really at death’s door, why is she so full of life? If Child Protective Services is about protecting children, why aren’t they letting her transfer to the hospital that believes that she has a chance to live?

Why did the hospital offer her such a large sum of money to keep quiet and walk away from her daughter? If they actually expected her to take it, does that mean they are accustomed to other parents complying with such offers? How many other parents have sold their children to be studied and turned their backs on their own flesh and blood?

Jasmin hospital listening

How can this be happening in America? How can a child so full of life be sacrificed on the altar of medical research, while her mother fights for her life? Why cannot a parent get a second medical opinion in the land of the free and the home of the brave? How can Child Protective Services push aside an innocent, loving mother and allow a hospital to experiment on her child?

These are very disturbing questions with even more disturbing implications. The bottom line is that a child wants to live and her mother wants to give her every chance to do so. Yet, she is fighting the might of a huge hospital network and the state for the very life of her child.

Dolly Parton speaks out on that Trump-bashing Emmy speech — and why she held her tongue

Oct 16th 2017, 21:43, by Sarah Taylor

Dolly Parton broke her silence and addressed the look-heard-round-the-world when her fellow Emmy Awards presenters Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda verbally attacked President Donald Trump in a speech.

What did Tomlin and Fonda say in their speech?

Parton’s “9 to 5” co-stars, Tomlin and Fonda, launched not-so-thinly veiled jabs at the president during the Emmy Awards in September.

“Personally, I have been waiting for a ‘9 to 5’ reunion ever since we did the first one,” Parton said.

“Well, back in 1980,” Fonda added, “in that movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot.”

“And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot!” Tomlin responded to heavy applause.

“So that being said, tonight we’re here to recognize some men who conduct themselves with the utmost integrity,” Fonda continued, and introduced the Emmy award nominees.

Throughout the speech, Parton kept her lips sealed and let her eyes do her talking — a move many took to interpret as disagreement with Tomlin and Fonda.

What did Parton say about Tomlin and Fonda’s speech?

During a Monday appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Parton revealed what was going through her mind at the time.

“Lily and Jane are Lily and Jane and I’m Dolly,” Parton explained. “I can’t tell everyone what to do. Everybody knows I don’t do politics. My mother was a Democrat and my daddy was a Republican, so I’m a hypocrat (phonetic).”

She continued and added that she doesn’t “play politics.”

“I’ve got as many Republican fans as Democrats and I don’t want to make any of them mad at me, so I don’t play politics,” Parton explained. “Plus I’m an entertainer, and I don’t usually voice my opinion in a situation like that. I was just happy to be back with them to get that standing ovation about the movie. I was there about the movie.”

When asked if she was nervous about the political rhetoric that permeated the evening, Parton admitted that she was.

“I was a little nervous, but I knew I wasn’t going to play the game,” she said. “But a lot of people got mad at me because I didn’t say something, and I thought ‘What if I had said something?’ I didn’t know what to say. I just always go to a boob joke if all else fails.”

Hundreds of people walk 11-year-old Utah boy home from school after bullies shout racial slurs

Oct 16th 2017, 21:18, by Kate Scanlon

Hundreds of people volunteered to walk an 11-year-old Utah boy home from school earlier this month after he said bullies shouted racial slurs at him from a car, according to KSTU-TV.

What happened?

Heather Romauldo told KSTU that her son, Mateus, called her after he walked home from school recently and he was very upset.

“He was walking home from school [Oct. 5] when a car full of teenagers drove by repeatedly yelling a racial slur at him,” Romauldo said. “He felt very terrified and actually told me he thought the kids were going to shoot him.”

Romauldo said she filed a police report and the incident is being investigated.

She also wrote on Facebook about what allegedly happened to Mateus, and her post caught the attention of Mateus’ basketball coach, Troy Harlan.

‘We are all the same’

Harlan told KSTU, “I know that when I read the post that his mom wrote about him being scared, I’ve gone through all that.”

“I grew up in Davis County, and I know what it feels like to be one of only two black kids at my school,” Harlan said.

Harlan told the station that he wished he would have been there when Mateus was walking home, so he decided to organize a walk so the boy wouldn’t be alone when he walked home from school.

Hundreds of people volunteered for the walk. Harlan’s basketball connections helped, too — the Utah Jazz Bear came to the walk, as did retired Jazz basketball player Thurl Bailey.

“The message I want to happen is that people need to be held accountable,” Harlan said. “You’re not born to hate people, you’re taught to hate people. I don’t care what color you are: We are all the same.”

China’s runaway space station will fall to earth in coming months, but no telling where it will hit

Oct 16th 2017, 20:53, by Jana J. Pruet

China’s space agency expects Tiangong-1, its out-of-control space station, to crash to Earth some time between now  and April 2018.

Tiangong-1 or “Heavenly Palace” lab was launched in 2011 and described in a report by The Guardian as a “potent political symbol” of China, part of an ambitious scientific push to turn China into a space superpower. It was used for manned and unmanned missions. Also, China’s first female astronaut, Liu Yang, visited the space station in 2012.

Last year, after months of speculation, the Chinese government confirmed it had lost control of the 8.5-metric ton space station and warned that it would plunge to Earth in 2017 or 2018.

What will happen?

“Based on our calculation and analysis, most parts of the space lab will burn up during falling,” a spokesperson for China’s space agency told Fox News.

However, large chunks of metal could still fall to Earth and injure or kill anyone standing on the impact site, according to Jonathan McDowell, a Harvard University astrophysicist.

“There will be lumps of about 100 [kilograms] or so, still enough to give you a nasty wallop if it hit you,” McDowell told The Guardian, last year. “Yes, there’s a chance it will do damage, it might take out someone’s car, there will be a rain of a few pieces of metal, it might go through someone’s roof, like if a flap fell off a plane, but it is not widespread damage.”

Will we know when it’s getting ready to hit?

“You really can’t steer these things,” McDowell said in 2016. “Even a couple of days before it re-enters, we probably won’t know better than six or seven hours, plus or minus, when it’s going to come down. Not knowing when it’s going to come down translates as not knowing where it’s going to come down.”

Has this ever happened before?

Yes. In 1991, the Soviet Union’s 20-metric ton Salyut 7 space station crashed to Earth while still docked to another 20-metric ton spacecraft called Cosmos 1686. They broke up over Argentina, scattering debris over the town of Capitán Bermúdez, according to The Guardian.

Also, NASA’s enormous 77-metric ton Skylab space station came hurtling to Earth in an almost completely uncontrolled descent in 1979, with some large pieces landing outside Perth in Western Australia.

Has anyone ever been injured?

No. The Guardian reported that larger spacecraft than Tiangong-1 have made uncontrolled re-entries and there have been no reported injuries to people.

Should we be worried?

Nope. You can’t change anything by worrying, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Besides, the chances of being injured by falling debris are considered remote, but China told the United Nations “Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space” in May that it would carefully monitor the craft’s descent and inform the U.N. when it begins its final plunge.

Teacher scolds Spanish-speaking student to ‘speak American’ — and outraged classmates react

Oct 16th 2017, 20:38, by Dave Urbanski

Dozens of students staged a walkout Monday morning from New Jersey’s Cliffside Park High School over a video of a teacher scolding a Spanish-speaking student to “speak American,” NorthJersey.com reported.

How did this start?

  • The video from a classroom shows the teacher saying, “… Men and women are fighting. They are not fighting for your right to speak Spanish. They are fighting for your right to speak American.”
  • A student who was in the classroom said that prior to the comment, the teacher several times asked students whispering in Spanish to stop, WPIX-TV reported.
  • The teacher was substituting in a junior- and senior-level math class, the station added, and students said she teaches English at the high school.
  • It isn’t clear when the comments were made, but a YouTube video of the incident was posted Friday:

How did students in the class react?

  • A large number of Latin American students attend the school, NorthJersey.com said, and students in the class can be heard reacting angrily to the teacher’s statement. At least one gets up and leaves the class.
  • The student who left the classroom can be heard saying, “You’re being racist. I know how to speak English,” WPIX reported.
  • During the subsequent school walkout Monday morning, some protesting students wore or waved flags — including those of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Brazil — as they gathered on the steps in front of the high school during fourth period, the NorthJersey.com added.
  • They also chanted in English and Spanish: “C.P. United” and “All Lives Matter,” the outlet said.
  • “Mostly every student here is basically from another country,” Seda Avci, a freshman, told NorthJersey.com. “So it hurts other people, knowing that they don’t want them to speak their own language.”

How did the school respond to Monday’s walkout?

  • Students told the outlet they’d been warned that walkout participants would be suspended and that some were already handed suspensions.
  • School employees took photos during the walkout, NorthJersey.com added.
  • A fire alarm sounded around 11:30 a.m., the outlet reported, and the resulting evacuation broke up most of the protesters. Others continued chanting and waving their nationalities’ flags, however, NorthJersey.com said.
  • The school board is holding a special closed-session meeting Monday night with no public portion, school officials told the outlet. Superintendent Michael Romagnini declined to comment, saying the issue was a personnel matter, NorthJersey.com reported.

What are students and others saying in opposition to the teacher?

  • Alana Lopez, a freshman, told WPIX the teacher should resign over her words: “It’s really disrespectful. That’s not right. You don’t do that.”
  • One student said to the station that the teacher previously has warned students in the hallways to refrain from speaking Spanish.
  • Some who used to attend the high school called for the school board to investigate the “discriminatory” behavior and the “belittling” of a bilingual student, WPIX said.
  • Rene Lavergneau — a Cliffside Park resident and former coordinator of foreign languages, bilingual education and English as a second language for Hackensack Public Schools — told NorthJersey.com that the teacher’s words were “deplorable.”
  • “That a teacher should say something of that nature to a student — who’s here to really get an education, who’s here because this is a land of opportunity,” he added to the outlet. “People don’t come to this country to fail, they come to succeed, and they should be encouraged to do their most and best at all times… Speaking Spanish is an asset, and should be seen as one.”

What are others saying in support of the teacher?

  • Others defended the teacher as a “great person” and a “wonderful teacher,” WPIX added.
  • Some also said English should be spoken in a class taught in English out of respect for the teacher, the station reported.
  • “I think what she said was wrong, definitely,” sophomore Patrick Martinez told the NorthJersey.com. “But I also think the school should give a chance to hear her out, people should try to talk to her. Even though what she said was wrong, it was in the heat of the moment.”

Gov. Rick Scott declares a state of emergency over an upcoming speech on a Florida campus

Oct 16th 2017, 20:13, by Sara Gonzales

Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) has declared a state of emergency in Alachua County, Florida, in preparation for an upcoming planned speech by white supremacist Richard Spencer.

A state of emergency over a speech? What gives?

Spencer is scheduled to speak Thursday at the University of Florida in Gainesville, and Scott said the decision was a proactive move based on the history of Spencer’s past speeches having “sparked protests and counterprotests resulting in episodes of violence, civil unrest and multiple arrests.”

“I find that the threat of a potential emergency is imminent,” Scott wrote in the seven-page executive order.

What will the state of emergency executive order do?

The order will activate the state’s Mutual Aid Plan to allow state and local law enforcement agencies to coordinate their resources. It will also give state agencies the power to suspend rules and regulations. It will also allow Scott to spend surplus money as he deems necessary.

“We live in a country where everyone has the right to voice their opinion. However, we have zero tolerance for violence and public safety is always our No. 1 priority. I have been in constant contact with Sheriff [Sadie] Darnell who has requested this Executive Order to ensure that county and local law enforcement have every needed resource. This executive order is an additional step to ensure that the University of Florida and the entire community is prepared so everyone can stay safe,” Scott said in a statement.

Who is Richard Spencer?

Richard Spencer, president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank, is a well-known leader of the “alt-right” movement. Spencer led the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in the death of a young woman and left 19 others injured after violence broke out between the protesters and counterprotesters.

 

California becomes the first state to officially recognize a ‘third gender’

Oct 16th 2017, 19:58, by Sarah Taylor

California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown wasn’t just busy keeping guns out of the hands of school officials this weekend, he also signed legislation Sunday formally recognizing a “third gender.”

What does this mean?

The new legislation will create a third gender option — “nonbinary” — for legal items such as birth certificates, identification cards, driver’s licenses, and more.

The law will not require a doctor’s statement nor will it require those wishing to legally change their gender to appear in court to file legal paperwork.

The law will also provide for minors who want to change their legal genders and who have parent or guardian permission to do so.

When did this start?

California’s Gender Recognition Act was proposed in January. The bill was crafted to “ensure that intersex, transgender, and nonbinary people have state-issued identification documents that provide full legal recognition of their accurate gender identity.”

After several amendments, the bill passed the Senate and the Assembly in September and subsequently sent to the governor.

What are some saying about this?

The bill’s co-author, Sen. Toni Atkins (D), issued the following statement to Buzzfeed on the new law:

I want to thank Gov. Brown for recognizing how difficult it can be for our transgender, nonbinary, and intersex family members, friends, and neighbors when they don’t have an ID that matches their gender presentation. The Gender Recognition Act will eliminate unnecessary stress and anxiety for many Californians, and it exemplifies the leadership role that our state continues to take in LGBTQ civil rights.

This writer’s perspective

Modern society has begun to create amorphous labels that only serve to further divide in the name of “self-expression.”

Frankly speaking, there is no third gender — there are two: male and female.

Even transgender people change from one gender to the other — from male to female, or from female to male — hence the term “transgender.”

What’s more is that no surgery or hormone therapy is required or encouraged for a male or a female to change to “nonbinary” … because a “nonbinary” gender doesn’t exist.

It’s as simple as this: Your reproductive parts determine whether you are a male or a female — not a state-issued ID.

Ahmad Khan Rahimi found guilty in 2016 New York bombing that injured 30

Oct 16th 2017, 19:13, by Jana J. Pruet

Ahmad Khan Rahimi was found guilty Monday on all counts of planting pressure-cooker bombs on New York City streets, including one that injured 30 people with a rain of shrapnel when it detonated in the Chelsea neighborhood on Sept. 17, 2016.

It took jurors in a Manhattan Federal Court just four hours to convict Rahimi, 29, of Elizabeth, New Jersey, after his eight-day trial, according to DNAInfo.

“Today’s verdict is the most forceful deterrent for anyone considering waging terror in our City,” NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said in a statement following the verdict, calling the fact that no one was killed in the West 23rd Street explosion “miraculous.”

What happened?

Prosecutors said Rahimi left his home before sunrise to plant a pipe bomb along the route of a Marine Corps charity race in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, an oceanside community, CBS News reported. No one was injured in that explosion because the race had been delayed and then canceled.

Just hours later, dozens of videos tracked Rahimi’s movements as he dragged his bombs in suitcases through Manhattan streets, and they also captured the explosion at 23rd Street in the Chelsea neighborhood that injured 30 people, according CBS News. Another bomb was planted on 27th Street but didn’t detonate.

According to the BBC, federal prosecutors described the Afghanistan-born U.S. citizen as a “soldier in a holy war against Americans.” He was inspired by the Islamic State group and al-Qaida to carry out the attacks in New York and New Jersey, CBS News reported.

What were the charges?

Rahimi, who lived with his family in Elizabeth, New Jersey, was charged with crimes including bombing a public place, using a weapon of mass destruction, and interstate transportation of explosives.

He researched online how to make bombs, bought ingredients and then assembled the bombs after watching how-to videos, prosecutors said in court.

What is his possible sentence?

He faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison for the crimes, prosecutors said, according to DNAInfo.

Rahimi is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 18. The defense plans to file an appeal.

HS marching band members walk off field during national anthem; spectators reportedly curse at them

Oct 16th 2017, 18:23, by Dave Urbanski

Thirteen members of an Iowa high school marching band linked arms and walked off the field in protest as fellow band members played “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a Friday night home football game, the Des Moines Register reported.

What went down?

  • Some spectators cursed at protesting members of the Ames High School marching band as they walked off the field, sophomore Lara Murray told the paper.
  • A number of fellow band members who remained on the field decided not to play their instruments, the Register added.
  • The protesting band members originally planned to take a knee, but principal Spence Evans told them they had to walk off the field instead, students told the paper.

Thirteen linked arms and walked off the field, and more decided not to play their instruments during the anthem. https://t.co/nFDheUVLlj

— Des Moines Register (@DMRegister) October 14, 2017

What did protesting band members have to say?

  • “How can we be unified if there’s racism, sexism and homophobia in our school?” Murray added to the Register. “I had a lot of second thoughts on it, but I thought I was going to regret it more if I didn’t do something.”
  • “We wanted to make this a movement, not a trend,” Petr Karpov told the paper, noting the protest wasn’t meant to demean the flag or military. “It was for taking a stand against racial prejudice.”
  • “It was an expression of my anger and sadness in the direction our country is heading,” Kira Davis added to the Register. “It’s to express I stand with people who are feeling persecuted or marginalized by the current president or people in power.”
  • “I felt like not doing it just because there was a lot of hate and suppression would defeat the entire purpose,” Owen Murphy told the paper. “The idea of hate is to make people fear standing out.”

How did the band director react?

  • Band director Chris Ewan declined to comment to the Register about the band members’ protest.

What else happened before the game?

  • The Ames student section planned on wearing America-themed clothing to the game, but administrators told them to choose a different theme, which became a hot topic on social media and at school Friday, the paper reported.

It was brought to our attention that USA theme is too controversial and we are just trying to have good time. PINK OUT tomorrow. #rollclones

— AHS Student Section (@AHSStudSection) October 13, 2017

  • But a school district tweet said the theme-change decision was from the students.

Ames High has great student leaders and the decision to change tonight's student section theme was student driven. #AmesCSD #AmesHighPride pic.twitter.com/CR6ZAViACs

Florida man takes drastic measures to send a message to protesting NFL players

Oct 16th 2017, 17:48, by Sara Gonzales

A Florida man who was upset about the NFL national anthem protests, particularly when it came to his home team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, took a drastic approach to convince others to join his NFL boycott.

What did he do?

Terry Smiley had the message “BE AMERICAN. BOYCOTT THE JAGS AND THE NFL” printed on a banner and hired a pilot to fly the giant banner over Everbank Field for two full hours on Sunday as the Jaguars played against the visiting Los Angeles Rams, who won the game 27-17.  Smiley said he was disgusted after several Jaguars players took a knee during the national anthem last month in London. The players did not kneel during the British national anthem.

“I am asking people to boycott the football games. I don’t watch it on TV,” Smiley told WJAX-TV.

“Do you believe in your country? Do you believe in ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’? If you don’t stand up for it now, you won’t have it in the future,” he added. “If you don’t like being in this country, get out of this country.”

To further advertise his cause, Smiley is also giving away free bumper stickers depicting Calvin from the comic book “Calvin and Hobbes” urinating on the words “NFL and the Jaguars.”

“If we boycott them, and we hit them in the pocketbook… Before long we’ll have them on both their knees,” he said.

Why does it matter?

The NFL has had a seemingly permanent spot in the headlines since the season began and players protested the national anthem in various ways, as the debate started by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick last season was reignited.

NFL owners will meet this week for the league’s fall meetings and plan to discuss a possible rule change requiring all players to stand for the national anthem or face fines.

Classic novel on racism pulled from 8th-grade curriculum. The reason is more than a little ironic.

Oct 16th 2017, 17:23, by Dave Urbanski

Mississippi’s Biloxi School District received complaints about the language in “To Kill A Mockingbird” — a classic novel dealing with racism in the American south — and then pulled the book from its 8th-grade English Language Arts curriculum last week, the Sun Herald reported.

What were the complaints about “To Kill a Mockingbird”?

  • “There is some language in the book that makes people uncomfortable, and we can teach the same lesson with other books,” Kenny Holloway, vice president of the Biloxi School Board, told the paper. “It’s still in our library. But they’re going to use another book in the 8th-grade course.”
  • The Sun Herald reported that it got an email from a concerned reader who said the ruling happened “mid-lesson plan, the students will not be allowed to finish the reading of ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ …. due to the use of the ‘N’ word.”

What else did the concerned reader say?

  • “I think it is one of the most disturbing examples of censorship I have ever heard, in that the themes in the story humanize all people regardless of their social status, education level, intellect, and of course, race,” the reader said to the paper. “It would be difficult to find a time when it was more relevant than in days like these.”

What is “To Kill a Mockingbird” about?

  • The 1960 novel by Harper Lee — which won the Pulitzer Prize in fiction the following year and was turned into an Oscar-winning movie in 1962 — is about a southern lawyer who defends a black man against a trumped-up rape charge and teaches his children about racial prejudice.

Who made the decision to pull the novel?

  • The school board told the Sun Herald it was an administrative and department decision, and the board didn’t vote on it.
  • Superintendent Arthur McMillan told the paper in a statement that “there are many resources and materials that are available to teach state academic standards to our students. These resources may change periodically. We always strive to do what is best for our students and staff to continue to perform at the highest level.”

What does Common Core have to say about “To Kill a Mockingbird”?

  • It’s listed on the curriculum as a core text for 8th grade ELA, the Common Core state standards for English Language Arts, the Sun Herald said.

What does the American Library Association have to say about the novel?

  • The organization lists “To Kill A Mockingbird” as among the most banned or challenged books.

Former Vanderbilt professor Carol Swain — an outspoken conservative as well as a critic of the left’s hold on public education — weighed in on the issue on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends”:

This writer’s perspective

It’s ironic that the Biloxi School District pulled “To Kill a Mockingbird” over concerns that it “makes people uncomfortable.” The subject is supposed to make one feel uncomfortable — and the acts of reading and discussing the novel can, in fact, help do away with racism.

Instead, students will be protected from eyeballing language they’ve no doubt heard or read already and subsequently miss the opportunity to become conversant not only with a classic of American literature but more importantly about the subjects of race and racism for the betterment of society.

To what extent will the perpetually offended hold sway in this area? What other language will be sanitized so that deeper meanings are rendered invisible? This circumstance is not dissimilar from college students and professors pushing to do away with free speech and expression that doesn’t align with their far-left viewpoints.

Such cowering political correctness and censorship must end — and Atticus Finch would no doubt argue that point.

Weinig charmant, wel leuk: de chinfie nieuwe trend op social media?

Oct 16th 2017, 11:20, by Désirée du Roy

Vergeet de perfecte poses van de fitgirls, gefilterde travelpics en moeders met hippe draagdoeken op Instagram, hier is Michelle Liu. Haar specialiteit? De chinfie. Ze is mateloos populair met haar reisfoto’s waarop ze met dubbele kin te zien is.

Michelle Liu reist de hele wereld rond, maar in plaats van fancy foto’s in bikini of stoer op de top van een berg heeft ze zo haar eigen stijl. Ze trekt een gek gezicht, zodat ze een dubbele kin heeft en maakt haar foto’s vanaf de onderkant. Deze zogenaamde fotografiefouten maken haar een welkome afwisseling in de perfecte wereld van Instagram.

Haar middelvinger naar het bekende schoonheidsideaal levert haar bergen volgers op, die de hilarische reisfoto’s wel kunnen waarderen.

I leaned in to say hello and got a big horse kiss in the ear, and luckily @nomadasaurus was there to to capture the moment. I think the horse even has a cheeky little smirk.

Tropische storm Ophelia teistert Ierland

Oct 16th 2017, 11:18, by anp

De orkaan Ophelia is inmiddels afgezwakt tot een tropische storm en teistert maandag de zuidkust van Ierland. Het leidt tot nu toe tot omgevallen bomen, kapotte hoogspanningslijnen en tien meter hoge golven voor de kust. De Ierse regering heeft waarschuwingen doen uitgaan dat het de ergste storm van de aflopen vijftig jaar kan worden.

Ongeveer 15.000 woningen hebben geen elektriciteit en op de luchthaven van de hoofdstad Dublin zijn 130 vluchten geannuleerd. Scholen en ziekenhuizen zijn gesloten en het openbaar vervoer rijdt niet. Het leger is met zandzakken paraat voor het geval er overstromingen ontstaan.

De storm kwam maandag aan het eind van de ochtend aan land. Op het zuidelijkste punt van Ierland werden snelheden van 176 kilometer per uur gemeten aldus de Ierse meteorologische dienst.

Nooit was het 16 oktober zo warm in Nederland

Oct 16th 2017, 11:04, by anp

Het is maandag officieel de warmste 16 oktober ooit in Nederland. In De Bilt bereikte het kwik om 12.40 uur 21,5 graden. Het oude dagrecord stond op 21,2 graden. Hierbij geldt de temperatuur die wordt gemeten bij het KNMI in De Bilt, in het midden van het land.

Sinds het begin van de weermetingen in 1901 kwam de temperatuur in de tweede helft van oktober tweemaal uit boven de 25 graden: in 1921 en in 1937, beide keren in Maastricht. Op 27 oktober 1937 werd 25,2 graden gemeten en op 18 oktober 1921 zelfs 27,2 graden.

,,Dat record uit 1921 zal vermoedelijk niet sneuvelen vandaag, maar de kans dat het meer dan 25,2 graden wordt in bijvoorbeeld Maastricht of Eindhoven is erg groot´´, aldus een woordvoerder van Weeronline. Als het zover komt, is dat volgens hem ,,ergens in de eerste uren van de middag''. In het dorp Ell, in Midden-Limburg, was het kort na het middaguur al 23,8 graden. ,,Ter vergelijking: in 2015 lag er medio oktober sneeuw in de Limburgse heuvels.''

Waarom zoveel koppels niet in hetzelfde bed slapen

Oct 16th 2017, 10:04, by Jeannette Kras

Slaap je niet met je partner in één bed? Je bent niet de enige. Uit een nieuwe studie blijkt dat een kwart van de Britten regelmatig gescheiden slaapt.

Stress, lange werkdagen en kinderen die de nachtrust verstoren zijn de oorzaken zo concludeert beddenverkoper Bensons for Beds na onderzoek onder 2.000 Britse koppels. De stellen konden meerdere redenen noemen voor het gescheiden slapen.

Een kwart zei in de logeerkamer te gaan slapen vanwege het gesnurk van de partner. Nog eens 19 procent geeft aan dat hun partner regelmatig in slaap valt op de bank en daar dan de rest van de nacht blijft liggen. 14 procent wil de partner niet wakker maken als hij vroeg op moet voor werk. Maar daarnaast gaf 60 procent ook toe het gewoon comfortabeler te vinden om niet in één bed te slapen. Ook relatieproblemen lagen vaak ten grondslag aan de keus voor een ander bed.

Het gescheiden slapen blijft niet zonder gevolgen voor de relatie. Een tiende van de ondervraagden dacht dat daardoor hun relatie was verslechterd. 28 procent zei dat ze minder seks hadden en een derde gaf aan dat ze hun alternatieve slaapkamergewoonte niet aan vrienden en familie vertelden.

Psycholoog en relatie-expert Donna Dawson vindt de uitkomsten zorgwekkend. “De kans is groot dat partners emotioneel uit elkaar groeien als ze gescheiden slapen. Je intimiteit als koppel verslechtert als je ‘s nachts alleen bent. Ook loop je het risico dat je seksleven minder wordt, aangezien je niet langer wordt gestimuleerd door de fysieke aanwezigheid van je partner.”

Het schokkende aantal kinderen met obesitas wereldwijd

Oct 16th 2017, 08:10, by Jeannette Kras

Je kunt spreken van een wereldwijde epidemie als het gaat om kinderen met obesitas. In de afgelopen vier jaar is het aantal zeer zwaarlijvige kinderen vertienvoudigd.

Onderzoekers bestudeerden obesitas over de hele wereld en ontdekten dat 124 miljoen jongens en meisjes te dik zijn. Het meest zorgwekkend is de situatie in westerse landen, maar ook in China en delen van Zuid-Amerika neemt het aantal kinderen met overgewicht snel toe.

Het onderzoek, dat in The Lancet verscheen en is uitgevoerd in samenwerking met de Wereldgezondheidsorganisatie, vergeleek 2.400 studies waarin lengte en gewicht van zo’n 32 miljoen 5 tot 19-jarigen is bijgehouden.

In 2016 waren het kleine eilanden in de Pacific, zoals Nauru, de Cookeilanden en Palau, waar obesitas bij kinderen het meeste voorkwam, maar op onderstaande kaarten is te zien dat van de jongens in de VS en Argentinië eveneens meer dan 40 procent overgewicht heeft.

In Europa zijn vooral Maltese, Italiaanse en Griekse kinderen te dik. Zo’n 40 procent van de jongens weegt te veel. In Nederland gaat het om een kwart. Dat is vergelijkbaar met de Scandinavische landen, Duitsland en België.

Op onderstaande kaarten is te zien hoeveel kinderen overal ter wereld overgewicht hebben (klik op de kaarten voor de precieze cijfers).

5,4 miljoen werkenden gaan minder inkomstenbelasting betalen

Oct 16th 2017, 07:36, by Jeannette Kras

De invoering van de sociale vlaktaks door Rutte III gaat 5,4 miljoen werkenden geld opleveren, 2,1 miljoen gaan er op achteruit. Dat berekende het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS).

Het kabinet schaft twee van de vier belastingschijven af. Dat betekent dat de ruim 2 miljoen mensen met een inkomen tot 19.982 euro iets meer gaan betalen: ze gaan van 36,55 naar 36,93 procent.

Het overgrote deel van de werkenden gaat er echter op vooruit. Zij zaten in de tweede of derde belastingschijf van 40,8 procent en gaan nu ook 36,93 procent inkomstenbelasting betalen. De grens vanaf waar het toptarief geldt, is iets omhoog gegaan, van 67.072 naar 68.600 euro.

De middeninkomens profiteren dus het meest, maar de laagste inkomens worden gecompenseerd door een verhoging van de heffingskorting. De wijziging van het belastingstelsel kost de staat structureel 6,4 miljard euro.

Het CBS heeft niet gekeken naar de gevolgen van het versneld afbouwen van de hypotheekrenteaftrek en het verhogen van de arbeids- en ouderenkorting. “Wat de opeenstapeling van al deze maatregelen betekent voor het bedrag dat individuele burgers aan belasting verschuldigd zullen zijn, is sterk afhankelijk van hun specifieke situatie”, klinkt het.

 

 

Oud-mariniers: regering wist dat bij einde treinkaping De Punt doden zouden vallen

Oct 16th 2017, 07:09, by Jeannette Kras

De mariniers die de treinkaping bij De Punt moesten beëindigen werden ingezet om te doden. Dat zeggen twee oud-mariniers maandag in de Volkskrant. Ze noemen de rechtszaak dan ook een schijnvertoning.

De afgelopen weken zeiden mariniers, die bij de bevrijdingsactie in 1977 betrokken waren, in de rechtszaal dat ze levensbesparende geweldsinstructies hadden opgevolgd. Maar volgens de oud-mariniers, zelf ingezet bij een gijzeling in een basisschool in Bovensmilde, is dat onzin. “Wij schieten niet op benen. Dat doet een wijkagent“, zegt oud-marinier Peter Gatowinas in de Volkskrant.

De oud-mariniers denken dat hun collega’s de opdracht kregen van de Nederlandse regering om deze onjuiste verklaring af te leggen. “Wij zijn getraind om te doden”, zegt Gatowinas. “Martelen. Een strot doorbijten als het moet. Wij zijn killers. Na ons is er niemand meer. Als je ons inzet, wordt doden ingecalculeerd. Anders bel je de politie.” “Ik was hun schietinstructeur”, zegt collega Jack Schollink. “De jongens trainden met uzi en revolver. Ik leerde ze: richt op romp en gezicht.”

De gijzeling in Bovensmilde vond gelijktijdig plaats met die bij De Punt. “Bij onze briefing werd letterlijk gezegd dat er doden zouden vallen,” zegt Gatowinas. “Ons werd verzocht, nee, bijna gesmeekt: “Heren, ik heb een dringend verzoek: in de trein gaan doden vallen. Om de goeie naam van het korps mariniers hoog te houden verzoek ik jullie met klem, als je de mogelijkheid hebt, de terroristen levend uit de school te halen.”

Op 23 mei 1977 gijzelden 9 Molukse jongeren 20 dagen lang 54 van de 94 passagiers van de intercity van Groningen naar Assen. Bij de bevrijding kwamen 2 gegijzelden en 6 kapers om het leven. Tegelijkertijd vond ook een gijzeling op een basisschool in Bovensmilde plaats.

Halbe Zijlstra minister van Buitenlandse Zaken, Wiebes EZ

Oct 16th 2017, 06:56, by Gerard Driehuis

Halbe Zijlstra, nu fractievoorzitter van de VVD, wordt de nieuwe minister van Buitenlandse Zaken, als opvolger van PvdA-er Koenders. Dat bericht de Telegraaf, doorgaans goed ingevoerd in nieuws uit de VVD. Eric Wiebes krijgt Economische Zaken, inclusief het belangrijke thema Klimaat onder zijn hoede. Wiebes kwam als ‘wonderkind’ naar Den Haag om de falende Weekers te vervangen als staatssecretaris over de belastingdienst. Dat werd geen succes: onder Wiebes groeide de chaos bij de belastingen verder. Het was de vraag of Wiebes een tweede kans zou krijgen. De immer loyale Rutte geeft hem die tweede kans met een ferme promotie

Nog even zomer in Nederland: het wordt 26 graden!

Oct 16th 2017, 06:30, by Jeannette Kras

Het is bijna niet te geloven dat het herfst is. Na een geweldig zonnig weekend vormt maandag de kers op de taart. In het zuidoosten wordt het naar verwachting maar liefst 26 graden.

Het zijn temperaturen waarvoor menig gezin deze herfstvakantie is afgereisd naar Zuid-Europa. Niet nodig, blijkt nu, maar het is wel een zeldzaamheid. Sterker nog, vermoedelijk wordt het de warmste 16 oktober ooit. Sinds het begin van de metingen is het nog nooit zo heet geweest.

Weerman Michiel Severin van Weerplaza: “Het is maar twee keer eerder gebeurd dat het zo warm werd. Het datumrecord is 24,2 graden en is gevestigd in Maastricht.  Het staat al sinds 1949, dat is 68 jaar!”

Het was te merken dat het mooi weer was dit weekend. Heel Nederland leek de weg op te willen. Er stonden lange files richting de stranden en ook ‘s avonds was het nog druk op de weg.

Slaap in het donker: licht maakt dik

Oct 16th 2017, 03:58, by Gerard Driehuis

Als je vaak slaapt met licht aan kom je onherroepelijk aan. Dat zegt onderzoeker dr. Rosa van den Berg van het Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum (LUMC) tegen De Telegraaf. ‘Nachtbrakers’, die ‘s nachts van alles doen en nog slapen als het buiten al weer licht wordt verstoren hun biologische klok en lopen daarmee risico met hun gewicht, denkt zij.
„We doen tegenwoordig alsof het altijd dag is”, zegt Van den Berg. „Kijk maar eens naar foto’s uit de ruimte van Europa bij nacht, het is één grote zee van licht.”
Rosa van den Berg is een van de Leidse onderzoekers die zich in de afgelopen jaren boog over het fascinerende verband tussen de biologische klok en het zogeheten ’bruine vet’, dat slank maakt. „Voor het eerst hebben we nu laten zien”, zegt zij, „dat dit bruine vet minder actief wordt bij langere blootstelling aan licht.”

Engeland is 500 miljard armer dan gedacht

Oct 16th 2017, 03:48, by Gerard Driehuis

Nieuwe slag voor Engeland: het land blijkt veel minder aan buitenlands tegoed en buitenlandse waardepapieren te bezitten dan gedacht. Een herziening van de cijfers maakt dat er geen postieve balans is van bijna 500 miljard, maar dat de schulden de bezittingen overtreffen, schrijft de Daily Telegraph. Daarbij komt dat er – per saldo – geen buitenlandse investeringen meer het land binnenstromen: er gaat meer weg dan er komt. In de eerste helft van 2016 overtroffen de buitenlandse investeringen in Engeland de uitstroom van Engelse investeringen in de rest van de wereld met 125 miljard. In de eerste helft van dit jaar stroomde er meer geld weg dan er binnenkwam. Kortom: Engeland is armer dan gedacht en wordt nu al steeds armer.
En dan moet Brexit nog beginnen

DENK: Nederland moet Suriname betalen voor slavernij

Oct 16th 2017, 01:00, by anp

De Tweede Kamerfractie van DENK vindt dat Nederland Suriname moet compenseren voor het slavernijverleden. Dat zou kunnen door te betalen voor het herstel van cultureel erfgoed in het land, zegt bestuurslid Gladys Albitrouw. De partij vindt het onvoldoende dat Nederland spijt heeft betuigd over het slavernijverleden.

DENK is voor een vijfdaags bezoek in Suriname. Behalve bezoeken aan projecten die door Nederland gefinancierd zijn via het Twinning-project, heeft de fractie ook afspraken met het Surinaamse parlement en de Surinaamse minister van Buitenlandse Zaken.

Fractievoorzitter Tunahan Kuzu benadrukt dat de trip ,,geen politiek karakter" heeft. ,,Het gaat ons om de relatie tussen twee volken," aldus Kuzu. ,,Wij zien de relatie tussen landen als die tussen broers. Maar de regering hier voelt de houding van Nederland als een vader die zijn zoon toespreekt."

René van der Gijp is verliefd

Oct 15th 2017, 22:57, by anp

René van der Gijp heeft nieuw liefdesgeluk gevonden bij de 41-jarige Minouche. De twee kennen elkaar al een poosje van het schoolplein en via hun kinderen die samen in dezelfde klas zaten, vertelt de voetbalanalist in De Telegraaf. ''De laatste tijd is de liefdesvlam echt overgeslagen: we zijn dol op elkaar."

Van der Gijp verloor vorig jaar zijn levenspartner Daniëlle. Na haar overlijden kwam hun zoon Nicky op veertienjarige leeftijd bij René in huis wonen. Met Minouche heeft René opnieuw een latrelatie. ''We voelen ons hierbij allebei prettig. Zo'n drie keer in de week zoeken we elkaar op'', vertelt René.

''Na mijn eerste relatie heb ik nooit meer de behoefte gevoeld om samen te wonen. Ik vind het lastig als vrouwen zich geforceerd aan mijn leefstijl moeten aanpassen. Bovendien houd ik van rust op zijn tijd."

Ierland maakt zich op voor orkaan

Oct 15th 2017, 19:26, by anp

Ierland zet zich schrap voor de orkaan Ophelia, mogelijk de zwaarste storm sinds meer dan vijftig jaar die het land treft. In grote delen van het land blijven scholen maandag gesloten, meldt de Irish Times. Het hoogtepunt van de storm wordt verwacht tussen maandag 09.00 uur (10.00 uur Nederlandse tijd) en dinsdag 03.00 uur.

Volgens de Ierse meteorologische dienst trekt de storm langs de westkust richting Schotland. Er worden windsnelheden boven de 130 kilometer per uur verwacht. In sommige kustgebieden staat het leger met zandzakken paraat voor het geval er overstromingen ontstaan. Ook wordt rekening gehouden met stroomstoringen. Luchtvaartmaatschappij KLM heeft zes vluchten van Schiphol naar Ierland en weer terug voor maandag geschrapt.

Eenmaal boven Groot-Brittannië zal de storm zijn afgezwakt, maar de Britse autoriteiten waarschuwen dat het weg-, spoor- en luchtverkeer en de veerdiensten hinder kunnen ondervinden.

SPD wint verkiezingen Nedersaksen

Oct 15th 2017, 17:01, by anp

De Duitse sociaal-democratische partij SPD heeft zondag in de deelstaat Nedersaksen dan toch een verkiezingsoverwinning behaald. De partij heeft volgens prognoses van de publieke omroepen ARD en ZDF ruim 37 procent van de stemmen gekregen, een duidelijke winst ten opzichte van de vorige verkiezingen in 2013 (32,6 procent). De CDU valt met 35 procent iets terug (2013: 36 procent).

De Groenen, die in de aan Nederland grenzende deelstaat met de SPD regeerden, leveren fors in, van 13,7 naar 8 tot 8,5 procent van de stemmen. Ze blijven daarmee wel de liberale FDP (7 procent) voor.

De rechtse Alternative für Deutschland, die vier jaar geleden nog niet bestond, komt met 5,5 procent het deelstaatparlement binnen. Die Linken halen met 4,8 procent opnieuw de kiesdrempel niet.

De bizarre reden waarom veel mannen geen condoom gebruiken

Oct 15th 2017, 15:39, by Désirée du Roy

Je verwacht dat veel mannen zonder problemen een condoom gebruiken tijdens het vrijen, maar dat geldt niet voor een derde van de Amerikanen. De reden is enigszins opmerkelijk: de meeste condooms zijn te groot voor de gemiddelde Amerikaanse penis.

Dat schrijft althans The New York Times naar aanleiding van een nieuwe studie. Seksuologe Debby Herbenick van de universiteit van Indiana en haar team vroegen 1.661 mannen naar de lengte van hun penis in erectie. De gemiddelde lengte blijkt 14,15 centimeter. Dat is bijna 3 centimeter korter dan het standaardcondoom dat 17 centimeter meet. Het gevolg is uiteraard dat de meeste condooms veel te los zitten en daardoor niet fijn aanvoelen.

Je vraagt je ongetwijfeld af waarom we dat nu pas weten. Herbenick verklaart: “Jaren geleden werd de standaardlengte van een condoom bepaald op 17 centimeter. Het uitgangspunt was destijds dat het groot genoeg moest zijn voor iedereen. Het ‘teveel’ werd gewoon opgerold.”

Maar het bedrijf Global Protection Corp. komt met een oplossing. Onder de naam ‘myOne Perfect Fit’ komen er binnenkort condooms op de markt met een lengte variërend van 12,45 tot 23,88 centimeter en met een omtrek tussen de 8,90 en 12,70 centimeter.

Laatste slag om Raqqa begonnen

Oct 15th 2017, 13:11, by anp

Syrische milities die worden gesteund door de VS zijn de laatste slag om Raqqa begonnen. Het doel is de paar overgebleven verzetshaarden van Islamitische Staat in de voormalige hoofdstad van het kalifaat zo snel mogelijk op te ruimen.

,,De strijd gaat door totdat de hele stad ook vrij is van de terroristen die weigerden zich over te geven'', verklaarde een woordvoerder van de Syrische Democratische Strijdkrachten (SDF). Naar zijn inschatting gaat het nog om 200 à 300 IS-strijders, overwegend buitenlanders.

De SDF liet weten dat in de nacht van zaterdag op zondag een IS-konvooi, met behalve 275 jihadisten ook zo'n 400 burgers, de stad heeft kunnen verlaten. De evacués verblijven nog wel in het gebied dat SDF controleert. Tot de veilige aftocht is besloten om de herovering van Raqqa te bespoedigen.

Man rijdt rond in Drenthe met vermoord meisje van12

Oct 15th 2017, 08:40, by anp

Agenten hebben zaterdagavond in Assen een overleden kind in een auto aangetroffen. Een man die de politie naar de auto leidde, is opgepakt. Hij wordt verdacht van betrokkenheid bij de dood van het kind.

Het slachtoffer is vermoedelijk een 12-jarig meisje uit Hoogeveen. Agenten hebben een 46-jarige man uit dezelfde gemeente aangehouden op verdenking van betrokkenheid bij haar dood. Over de toedracht is nog niets bekend.

De chauffeur had de agenten zelf aangesproken bij het politiebureau aan de Balkengracht in de Drentse hoofdstad. Toen ze het kind in zijn auto zagen werd de man direct aangehouden. Zijn relatie tot het slachtoffer is nog onbekend.

Tot dertig jaar geleden werden baby’s onverdoofd geopereerd

Oct 15th 2017, 08:27, by Jeannette Kras

Tot begin jaren tachtig was de heersende opvatting dat baby’s geen pijn voelen. De gedachte was ook dat verdovingsmiddelen slecht zouden zijn voor pasgeborenen. En dus werden baby’s onverdoofd geopereerd. Daarover schrijft de Volkskrant.

Het idee was dat baby’s een onrijp zenuwstelsel hebben, waardoor ze geen pijn voelen en zouden ze toch wat voelen dan was dat niet zo erg, omdat ze zich er later toch niets van zouden herinneren. Pijnstilling zou gevaarlijk zijn, omdat de bloeddruk dan gevaarlijk kon dalen. Maar begin jaren tachtig zag de jonge Indiase dokter Kanwaljeet Anand steeds dat baby’s in shock terugkwamen van een operatie. Ze waren klam en bleek en hadden een zwakke pols. Hij betwijfelde dus of baby’s niets voelden bij een operatie.

Hij zette een onderzoek op wat nu nooit meer zou mogen: hij liet een groep pasgeborenen opereren met en een groep zonder verdoving. De resultaten, die in 1987 in The Lancet verschenen, zette de medische wereld op zijn kop: bij de baby’s die geen pijnstilling kregen ontstond zoveel stress dat zich een hormoonstorm ontwikkelde. Hun bloedsuikerspiegel piekte, hun ademhaling was onregelmatiger. Het was zo’n aanslag op hun kleine lijf dat organen konden uitvallen. Soms overleed een kind daardoor.

De artsen moeten zich rot zijn geschrokken, zegt Dick Tibboel, hoogleraar research intensive care op de kinderleeftijd aan het Erasmus MC, in de Volkskrant. “Het is eigenlijk verbazingwekkend: vraag een moeder of haar baby pijn heeft en ze zou, ook in die tijd, meteen ja hebben gezegd. Maar bij de artsen is lang sprake geweest van ontkenning. We waren vooral bezig om al die te vroeg geboren kinderen in leven te houden. Onderzoek naar pijn was bijzaak.”

Uiteindelijk werden overal ter wereld de richtlijnen veranderd en werd duidelijk dat het hele pijncircuit van de huid en zenuwbanen tot de hersenen bij foetussen van 22 weken al volledig is aangelegd.

 

Oud-generaal: “VS op weg naar oorlog met Noord-Korea tegen de zomer”

Oct 15th 2017, 07:11, by Jeannette Kras

Voor het eerst noemt iemand een tijd waarop een oorlog tussen de VS en Noord-Korea zou gaan beginnen. De belangrijke Amerikaanse oud-generaal Barry McCaffrey spreekt van volgende zomer.

Met Donald Trump aan het roer wordt een diplomatieke oplossing steeds moeilijker meent de ex-militair. “Het probleem is dat we op dit moment potentieel met zo veel crisissen zitten dat hij de diplomatieke inspanningen overbelast, net als de capaciteit van het Amerikaanse leger om ze het hoofd te bieden. We mogen onze ogen niet afhouden van Noord-Korea. Het huidige taalgebruik van de regering, dat gebrek aan een diplomatiek en serieus plan van aanpak, zal ons, naar mijn mening, doen verglijden naar een oorlog tegen volgende zomer.”

De presentator van het programma waarin hij zijn uitspraken deed, vertelt dat Barry McCaffrey normaal gesproken niet zo van de grote woorden is. “Ik ken de generaal al jaren. Ik ken hem als iemand met gezond verstand, wars van overdrijvingen.” Met andere woorden: we moeten zijn uitspraak misschien wel serieus nemen.

Katja Schuurman: Beschuldigingen Weinstein verbazen me niks

Oct 15th 2017, 06:50, by Désirée du Roy

Ook Katja Schuurman had een nare ervaring met Hollywoodproducent Harvey Weinstein. “Hij had een houding van: Alle meisjes gaan altijd mee als ik iets vraag,” vertelt ze in het AD.

Schuurman ontmoette de machtige producer op het Sundance Film Festival bij de première van de film Interview met Sienna Miller. “In mijn geval was er geen sprake van sexual harassment, maar dat kwam meer omdat ik niet mee ging. Ik was daar met Sienna Miller en hij was natuurlijk weer erg met haar bezig.”

Weinstein vroeg haar namelijk om met Sienna en hem mee te gaan. “Toen zei ik: ‘leuk, gezellig, maar dan moet ik wel even mijn vrienden meenemen’, want ik ga natuurlijk niet zonder Theodor (Holman) en Gijs (van de Westelaken).”

Dat kon Weinstein niet hebben. “Hij werd opeens heel agressief. Hij had een houding van luister je niet naar mij? Alle meisjes gaan altijd mee als ik iets vraag.” Katja besloot om dan maar niet mee te gaan. “Ze zijn zonder mij weggaan en daar heb ik geen spijt van. Als ik daar achteraf op terugkijk: de arrogantie droop ervan af. Als ik zeg dat we gaan, dan gaan we. Dus toen ik dit hoorde verbaasde mij dit niks.”

Orkaan op weg naar Europa

Oct 15th 2017, 05:01, by Gerard Driehuis

Orkaan Ophelia – nu nog bij de Azoren – is op weg naar Europa en zal maandag aankomen in Ierland. Mogelijk is het dan geen orkaan meer, maar een extreem zware storm, maar het is ook dan zeer ongebruikelijk. Orkanen horen thuis in Amerika (noord en zuid) of in Azie (waar een tropische storm tyfoon wordt genoemd). Kenmerk van orkanen en tyfoons is dat het tropische stormen zijn. Vandaar dat Europa zelden wordt getroffen. De laatste tropische storm dateert van56 jaar geleden. Dat was orkaan Debbie en hij zij maakte in Ierland 16 dodelijke slachtoffers.

Of de komst van Ophelia verband houdt met de opwarming is niet te zeggen

‘Ik ben te mooi voor een jonge man”

Oct 15th 2017, 04:43, by Gerard Driehuis

“Het is niet fijn om zo mooi en jeugdig te zijn als ik ben,” zei de 44 jarige Dawn Cousins, moeder van 4,  in een TV-programma. Sinds haar laatste echte relatie (van de 4 kinderen) in 2003 op de klippen liep heeft ze niemand meer gevonden.”Ik begin in paniek te raken.” Oorzaak: “Nummer 1: ik ben erg knap, nummer 2: ik heb een jeugdige uitstraling, nummer 3: ik ben erg geestig en leuk om mee om te gaan. Ik ben niet de ‘gewone’ vrouw van 44 met 4 kinderen.” Dawn kan wel leuke mannen krijgen van haar eigen leeftijd, maar die vindt ze te oud.

“Mannen worden boven de 40 dikker en ik kan niet met een uitgezakte man zijn als ik zelf zo mooi en jeugdig ben.”

Haar (volwassen) kinderen vinden dat ze niet zo gek moet doen.

 

Pornobaas biedt 10 miljoen voor info Trump

Oct 15th 2017, 00:07, by anp

Pornobaas Larry Flynt biedt tien miljoen dollar voor belastende informatie over president Donald Trump. Fox Business meldt dat de uitgever een paginagrote advertentie in de zondageditie van de The Washington Post heeft gekocht.

Flynt zoekt naar een ,,smoking gun", een onomstotelijk bewijs van misstanden die kunnen leiden tot het aftreden van de president. Hij noemt in de advertentie onder meer financiële documenten of betrekkingen met de Russen.

Flynt heeft in het verleden vaker miljoenenbeloningen uitgeloofd voor informatie die politici ten val kon brengen. Toen Trump kandidaat was voor de presidentsverkiezingen, bood hij een miljoen voor informatie over illegale seksuele praktijken van Trump.

23 jaar onterecht vast, maar nu is hij vrij: “Ik ben zo gelukkig”

Oct 14th 2017, 10:14, by Jeannette Kras

Op zijn zeventiende werd Lamonte McIntyre veroordeeld voor een dubbele moord. De Amerikaan kreeg tweemaal levenslang, maar hield altijd vol onschuldig te zijn. Gisteren kwam hij op zijn veertigste eindelijk vrij.

23 jaar van zijn leven bracht McIntyre ten onrechte door in een gevangenis in Kansas. Er is nooit forensisch bewijs gevonden in de moordzaak. Wel waren er zo gezegde getuigen, maar die hebben nu hun verklaring ingetrokken. Actiegroepen hebben er acht jaar aan gewerkt om de zaak heropend te krijgen.

Het was nog niet gezegd dat McIntyre vrij zou komen. De openbaar aanklager verraste dan ook alle aanwezigen in de overvolle rechtszaal door direct te zeggen dat justitie de zaak liet vallen.

McIntyre is dolblij. “Het gaat goed met me. Ik ben zo gelukkig”, zei hij toen hij de rechtbank verliet. “Ik ben God dankbaar dat ik hier nu sta.” Hij viel zijn huilende moeder in de armen. “Hier heb ik zo lang op gewacht.”

Trump zegt dat hij de president van de Maagdeneilanden heeft ontmoet. Dat is hij zelf

Oct 14th 2017, 09:43, by Jeannette Kras

Donald Trump is kennelijk niet op de hoogte van de omvang van zijn land. Hij weet nog net dat Puerto Rico onder zijn bewind valt, maar dat de Amerikaanse Maagdeneilanden ook tot het grondgebied van de VS behoren, is klaarblijkelijk nieuw voor hem.

De eilandengroep was net als een groot deel van de rest van het Caribisch gebied zwaar getroffen door orkaan Irma. Tijdens zijn reis door de regio ontmoette Trump een heleboel politici. Daar vertelde hij over in een speech afgelopen vrijdag. Één ding was opmerkelijk: hij beweerde de president van de U.S. Virgin Islands te hebben ontmoet. Maar zoals de naam al zegt, is dit Amerikaans territorium. Die president, dat is hij dus zelf.

Nu vraag je je af wie Trump dan heeft ontmoet. Vermoedelijk gaat het om Kenneth Mapp, een New Yorker die sinds 2015 gouverneur is van de eilanden.

Twitter vindt het uiteraard weer erg grappig.

When I returned from reporting in #PuertoRico and USVI many asked how my foreign trip was. Had to remind them that I never left the country.

Economen concluderen: multinationals hebben te veel macht

Oct 14th 2017, 09:18, by Jeannette Kras

Grote multinationals hebben te veel macht. Daardoor blijven de lonen laag en de prijzen hoog. De extra winst gaat naar de bedrijven. Dat concluderen de Vlaamse economen Jan De Loecker en Jan Eeckhout in een nieuwe studie.

De Loecker en Eeckhout keken naar de marge op verschillende producten van Amerikaanse bedrijven. Ze stellen dat het gat tussen de productiekosten en de verkoopprijs schrikbarend snel groter wordt in bijna alle sectoren. Dat komt niet door stijgende prijzen maar door dalende kosten. Maar de enigen die dat voordeel terugzien zijn de bedrijven zelf.

“Omdat er niet voldoende concurrentie is om bedrijven te dwingen hun kostenvoordeel aan de consument door te spelen”, zegt De Loecker in het AD. “In bijna alle sectoren zien we dat steeds minder bedrijven actief zijn, die wel steeds groter worden. Het aantal overnames rijst de laatste jaren de pan uit. Tegelijkertijd daalt het aantal nieuwkomers in sectoren die de gevestigde spelers uitdagen. Tel daarbij op dat de winstmarges van die grote bedrijven een veelvoud zijn van die van twintig jaar geleden en er moet wel sprake zijn van marktmacht.”

Volgens de onderzoekers zit de grootste pijn in de loonongelijkheid. “Het hogere management krijgt vaak een deel van de bedrijfswinst uitbetaald, terwijl de ‘gewone’ werknemers het van loongroei moeten hebben. De winsten groeien dus hard, maar in veel westerse landen stagneren de lonen. Ook in Nederland zou er ruimte voor loongroei moeten zijn, maar als een steeds kleinere groep bedrijven meer macht krijgt, dan hebben vakbonden het moeilijk.”

De grote multinationals krijgen ook politiek steeds meer in de melk te brokkelen. “Overheden doen van alles om die grote bedrijven naar zich toe te trekken. Dat is van alle tijden. Maar als alle overheden dat doen, krijg je een race naar de bodem waarbij de bedrijven de lachende derde zijn.”

Ruim 1000 genodigden bij afscheid Van der Laan

Oct 14th 2017, 09:15, by anp

Ruim duizend familieleden, vrienden, collega's en andere relaties zijn zaterdagmiddag bij de herdenkingsdienst van de overleden burgemeester Eberhard van der Laan. Tijdens de bijeenkomst in het Koninklijk Concertgebouw in Amsterdam spreken familie en vrienden, onder wie minister-president Mark Rutte en historicus Geert Mak.

Verder zijn er optredens van Wende Snijders, enkele leden van het Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest, Trio Bier en Acda en De Munnik, maakte de woordvoerder van Van der Laan bekend.

Voorafgaand aan het afscheid luiden om 12.50 uur de klokken van de Amsterdamse torens. Om 13.00 uur, als de dienst begint, staat het Amsterdams openbaar vervoer een minuut stil als eerbetoon aan de burgemeester.

Na afloop van de bijeenkomst in het Concertgebouw wordt de burgemeester in besloten kring begraven. Vrijdag konden Amsterdammers afscheid nemen van Van der Laan. Duizenden mensen kwamen naar het Concertgebouw om hem een laatste groet te brengen.

‘Een of meer doden gevonden in huis in Haren’

Oct 14th 2017, 07:20, by anp

In een woning aan het Jufferpad in Haren (Groningen) zijn volgens de politie 'een of meerdere overleden personen' gevonden. De straat is afgesloten en de politie doet onderzoek. Meer is nog niet bekend.

‘DNA op jas Anne leidde naar Michael P.’

Oct 14th 2017, 06:36, by anp

Een DNA-spoor op de teruggevonden jas van Anne Faber heeft geleid naar verdachte van haar dood Michael P. Dat meldt De Telegraaf op basis van bronnen dichtbij het onderzoek. Een woordvoerder van het Openbaar Ministerie (OM) kan het verhaal bevestigen noch ontkennen.

Volgens De Telegraaf matchte het spoor op de jas met een profiel van P., dat na een eerdere veroordeling werd opgenomen in de DNA-databank van het Nederlands Forensisch Instituut. De woordvoerder van het OM wil niet meer kwijt dan dat ,,alle bevindingen in het onderzoek zondagochtend hebben geleid naar P." Over de verdere onderzoeksresultaten wil het OM nu geen mededelingen doen in het belang van het onderzoek en omdat P. in beperkingen zit.

Het AD meldt daarnaast dat momenteel ook wordt onderzocht of P. in de nacht van 23 op 24 september in Nijkerk een vrouw heeft aangerand. Het signalement dat de politie eerder vrijgaf van deze dader zou overeenkomen met dat van P. De woordvoerder van het OM kan hier echter ook niets over vertellen. ,,Wij zijn de gangen van die man heel nauw aan het nagaan. Wat daarbij naar boven komt, zullen we bevestigen en erover vertellen zodra de tijd daar rijp voor is. Onze hoofdverantwoordelijkheid nu is ervoor te zorgen dat we een goede zaak hebben.''

Hoe je Netflix veel goedkoper kan maken

Oct 14th 2017, 06:23, by Gerard Driehuis

Netflix wordt steeds duurder. Slim: eerst zoveel mogelijk mensen goedkoop verslaafd maken en dan de prijzen verhogen. Maar er is iets tegen te doen. In andere landen, zoals Mexico, is Netflix veel goedkoper. De site Pepper legt uit hoe je als Nederlandse Netflix-verslaafde kunt kijken voor het Mexicaanse tarief. Je moet er wat energie in steken, maar dan kun je heel lang goedkoop kijken.

Volg de volgende drie stappen:
1. Zet je VPN aan op een Mexicaanse server (geen VPN? kijk hier)
2. Ga naar Netflix.com en kies daar het voor jou het beste abonnement
3. Vul je gegevens in en kies bij betaalwijze uit Credit Card (met deze prepaid kaart werkt het sowieso), OXXO, Debit Card of Gift Card. Tip van @Johansson86: je hebt een gratis Mastercard debit Creditcard bij N26.com‌ next.n26.com/en-eu/ Is het gewoon gratis.

De kosten voor de verschillende abonnementen zijn als volgt:
Basic kost MXN99, omgerekend zo’n €4,42
Standaard kost MXN129, omgerekend zo’n €5,77
Premium kost MXN159, omgerekend zo’n €7,11
