US Forces that Repeatedly Bombed Afghan Hospital, Knew it was a Hospital All Along
By Mike Sawyer Earlier this month, an aerial bombing in the Afghan city of Kunduz was conducted by the United States. During the bombing raid, a hospital was hit multiple times by US bombs. The bombardment left more than 20 members of staff and patients dead and dozens more injured. Almost immediately, the play on semantics began with Col…
US Rejects Hospital Bombing Investigation, Instead Smashes into Hospital in Tank, Destroying Evidence
After changing its story many times, the US now admits that it intentionally threw bombs, for more than an hour, at the now famous Doctors Without Borders hospital, proving accurate the assessment of DWB staffer Meinie Nicolai, who saidthe US attack was “a premeditated massacre.” Since initial US claims that the protected DWB hospital was a “Taliban stronghold” and so forth have been debunked as stupid, the US now claims it targeted the hospital because one man, a “Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence spy”, was inside.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero
No Medical Exemption for You
Published October 13, 2015
When vaccine risks turn out to be 100% for you or your child, you are expected to quietly accept that you are “unavoidable collateral damage” in the war on microorganisms. This cruel utilitarian rationale, also known as “the ends justify the means,” has been used by public health officials and medical trade groups to narrow the medical vaccine exemption, so that, today, almost no medical condition qualifies as an official reason for a doctor to grant someone a medical exemption to vaccination. At the same time, there are no good biological mechanism studies or large clinical trials validating the…
“Cured” Ebola Nurse in Critical Condition
October 16th, 2015 Via: Independent:
The exact nature of Ms Cafferkey’s illness is not known, but experts have expressed shock at the severity of her condition.
Jonathan Ball, professor of molecular virology at the University of Nottingham, said the news was “frankly staggering.”
“I am not aware from the scientific literature of a case where Ebola has been associated with what we can only assume as life threatening complications after someone has initially recovered, and certainly not so many months after,” he said.
Health authorities have emphasised that the risk to the general public remains low. However 58 people who had been in close contact with Ms Cafferkey are being monitored by Health Protection Scotland. 25 have been vaccinated using the jab successfully trialed earlier this year in Guinea.

Oakland: Outlaw Shipping Container Community, Containertopia
October 15th, 2015 And in Texas, instant slums.
“It’s pretty much my dream post-apocalyptic cyberpunk setup,” says Luke Iseman near his 160-square-foot box home. With a camp stove and a fridge “that’s a really simple hack,” his miniature shipping container nightmare chamber sits alongside 11 others in a warehouse at an undisclosed location in Oakland. File under: Apartment Sadness?
Bloomberg reports that the 31-year-old cool guy Wharton graduate has been chased from two other locations by the authorities. But, like an idiot, Iseman has no plans to give up. “I’d rather ask forgiveness than ask permission,” the entrepreneur says in high Silicon Valley fashion.
Iseman rakes in $1,000 a month for each of the 11 structures docked in the 17,000-square-foot warehouse he rents for $9,100. His tenants include a Facebook engineer, a SolarCity programmer, and a bicycle messenger. This, as Iseman calls it, is “Containertopia.”

Want Babies? Maybe Move Away From Fracking Country, New Studies Suggest
A recent protest against fracking in Chaco, New Mexico. (Photo: WildEarth Guardians/flickr/cc) From decreased sperm count to messed up hormones to premature births, exposure to fracking chemicals could lead to long-term reproductive health consequences, according to a pair of studies published this month. Research that appears Thursday in the journal Endocrinology shows that “23 commonly used oil and natural gas operation chemicals can activate or inhibit the estrogen, androgen, glucocorticoid, progesterone, and/or thyroid receptors, and mixtures of these chemicals can behave synergistically, additively, or antagonistically in vitro.”

ALERT: California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom to Push War On Gun Owners With Dangerous Anti-Gun Ballot Prop
California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is proposing a 2016 ballot initiative that would ask voters to strengthen the state’s gun laws by restricting ammunition sales, requiring owners to turn in assault-style magazines that have a large capacity and requiring gun owners to report lost or stolen guns to law enforcement.
If adopted, the proposal Newsom planned to release Thursday [October 15] would make California the first state in the nation to require background checks at the point of sale for ammunition, although other states require purchasers to obtain licenses and go through background checks ahead of time.
The proposal was drafted by Newsom, a candidate for California governor in 2018, and sponsored by the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
The reported ballot initiative would, if passed, make numerous changes to state law, including:
— Requiring that gun owners with “large capacity magazines” sell them, take them out of state, or turn them in to law enforcement to be destroyed.
— Requiring background checks for all ammunition purchases and that dealers acquire an ammunition sales permit. Retailers also would be required to report lost or stolen ammunition.
— Requiring that all lost or stolen firearms be reported to law enforcement.
We need you to help us fight back!
- How will you help us fight Gavin Newsom’s war against gun owners?*
Choose the ways that you will fight back:
- Donate and help FPC fight back against Newsom’s outrageous and dangerous gun control ballot proposal
- Support a pro-gun counter-proposal that would add a Right to Keep and Bear Arms to the California Constitution, require strict scrutiny, and repeal unconstitutional gun laws

NDAA 2016: ALMOST $1B TO ARM AND TRAIN SYRIAN, UKRAINIAN REBELS
By veto-proof 70-27 vote, Senate voted to approve Pentagon appropriation bill for 2016, known as National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) The Senate has approved a 2016 Defense Department spending bill that earmarks nearly $1 billion to arm Syrian and Ukrainian rebels, including several batallions adopting neo-Nazi symbols and slogans. By a veto-proof 70-27 vote, the Senate voted on October 7 to approve the $612 billion Pentagon appropriation bill for 2016, known as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). While most of the items in the bill would never be approved were our government to be bound by the enumerated powers of the Constitution, a few of the provisions are particularly pernicious.

Overdiagnosis and Overtreatment in CancerAn Opportunity for Improvement
Over the past 30 years, awareness and screening have led to an emphasis on early diagnosis of cancer. Although the goals of these efforts were to reduce the rate of late-stage disease and decrease cancer mortality, secular trends and clinical trials suggest that these goals have not been met; national data demonstrate significant increases in early-stage disease, without a proportional decline in later-stage disease. What has emerged has been an appreciation of the complexity of the pathologic condition called cancer. The word “cancer” often invokes the specter of an inexorably lethal process; however, cancers are heterogeneous and can follow multiple paths, not all of which progress to metastases and death, and include indolent disease that causes no harm during the patient’s lifetime. Better biology alone can explain better outcomes. Although this complexity complicates the goal of early diagnosis, its recognition provides an opportunity to adapt cancer screening with a focus on identifying and treating those conditions most likely associated with morbidity and mortality.
