Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die, so, let us all be thankful.
In a groundbreaking study, researchers have shown why a chemical once thought to be a safe alternative to bisphenol-A, which was abandoned by manufacturers of baby bottles and sippy cups after a public outcry, might itself be more harmful than BPA.
University of Calgary scientists say they think their research is the first to show that bisphenol-S, an ingredient in many products bearing “BPA-free” labels, causes abnormal growth surges of neurons in an animal embryo.
The same surges were also found with BPA, though not at the same levels as with BPS, prompting the scientists to suggest that all structurally similar compounds now in use or considered for use by plastic manufacturers are unsafe.
“A lot of the alternative chemicals have not been adequately tested because they don’t have to be,” said lead author Deborah Kurrasch. “A compound is considered safe (by the Food and Drug Administration) until proven otherwise.”
Kurrasch said her lab’s research suggests that pregnant women in particular should limit their exposure to plastics and sales receipts.
One of the most significant findings is that low doses can be more harmful than larger ones.

Literacy is a form of slavery until a systematic form of critical thinking is practiced by the reader.
If you want to free your mind, you first have to come to understand the process by which words were used to program and control your mind in the first place ; thereby you will have the ability to re-write the programming in your own image. That’s on an individual level, but what about humanity as a whole?
The status quo, or our existing state of affairs, amounts to this: Human actions are in conflict with Human needs for survival. The perfect storm of irrationality that we’re all experiencing has three major components which create its devastating effect:
1. Censorship or Secrecy which is the act of occulting information\
2. Corruption of Education which conveniently leaves you Intellectually Self-
3. Absence of compassionate communication, which prevents constructive action Ending secrecy and revealing the truth, does not automatically give people critical thinking and non-violent communication skills. Providing intellectual self-defense, does not automatically prevent censorship, nor does it teach one how to communicate. Learning how to communicate does not end secrecy, nor does it provide critical thinking. To free our minds, we must take 3 steps; and repeat those steps, over and over.
Let’s begin by defining 13 simple concepts, so that we
can all start on the same page:
1. Axiom of non-aggression is an ethical stance which asserts that “aggression” is inherently illegitimate. “Aggression” is defined as the “initiation” of physical force against persons or property, the threat of such, or fraud upon persons or their property. In contrast to pacifism, the non-aggression principle does not preclude violent self-defense. The principle is a deontological (or rule-based) ethical stance.
2. Education: to bring out, to extract,to produce from a state of occultation,
(Johnson’s Dictionary 1854); from the Latin verb educo, to lead or draw out.
3. Occult: from the Latin verb, occuto, to hide or to keep secret.
* Therefore, education is the process of un-occulting reality.
4. Polymath: A polymath(Greek polymathēs, “having learned much”) is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas.
5. Autonomy: Autonomy (Ancient Greek: autonomos from auto-“self” +
Nomos , “law” “one who gives oneself their own law”) is a concept found in moral, political, and bioethical philosophy. Within these contexts, it refers to the capacity of a rational individual to make an informed, un-coerced decision.
6.Government: is derived from the Latin word gubernare, a verb, meaning ―to control‖ combined with mente, a Latin noun, meaning mind. Government
means: To control the mind.
7. Cybernetics: The term cybernetics stems from the Greek (kybernētēs, steersman, governor,pilot, or rudder—the same root as government). Cybernetics is a broad field of study, which includes equations to control human behavior through the use of language; in other words, if the purpose of government is to control the mind, cybernetics would be the instruction manual on how to control your mind. This will mean more when we get to Norbert Wiener in a few minutes.
8. Conspiracy: from the Latin verb, conspire, to conspire; it is the act of occulting information in order to prey on those who have been denied access to the same set of useful information. See also: Cabal
9. Terrorism: Government by force or coercion. (OED)
10. Nescient: a lack of awareness or knowledge, as a consequence of never having had the choice or opportunity to be exposed to it. Had they been exposed to awareness or knowledge, it would have been integrated into their thoughts and actions, had they only been given the opportunity.
11. Ignorant: someone who is aware of a concept or knowledge, and yet does not integrate this information, and thus are resistant to learning by their own choice; or choosing not to learn. See also: denial.
12. Liber: The Latin word for book is also the same Latin word used to articulate the idea of freedom, and thus is the root word of liber-ty. Reading books provides a road to cognitive liberty.
13. Compassionate Communication: observing without judgment, we process our f
eelings and identify mutual needs, whereby we can communicate in order to meet the needs of all parties.
If the word government literally means ―to control the mind‖, wouldn’t learning how to control your own mind, negate the opportunity for external government? You see, it is the simple act of asking questions, which illustrates the Achilles’ heel of the control system; you can condition animals, but if humans ask questions, they
can learn your way to freedom.
Government will continue to exist until it is no longer necessary. The absence of government is anarchy; not autonomy. Absence of someone else controlling your mind does not automagically give you critical thinking, so it’s more logical, reasonable, and rational to learn how to learn anything for ourselves, and
thereby become autonomous, whereby external mind control-or government-
is no longer necessary.
Government, ―to control the mind‖, is a form of aggression when it is against your consent. When governments occult information-for example with ―top secrecy‖
it is a form of aggression, as it denies you the opportunity to make an informed choice. If 16,000,000 documents were made top secret by our government last year; how could we possibly expect to be informed as to what reality actually is ?
When secret societies occult information, and use oaths as a method of ensuring the secrets stay secret; they generate a power differential, if they prevent others from accessing useful information. Does the superclass which runs the world have superpowers? They do. Their super power is to have access to a systematic
method to attain certainty, while at the same time denying you access to the same
The purpose of this lesson is to transfer the super powers of the non-elected rulers to you, whereby you can inspect, validate, and if you so choose-install your own super-powers – of learning, thinking and deciding for yourself.
At a minimum — an absolute minimum — it starts with the defining statement of Edwards Bernays’ 1928 book Propaganda. “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.”
“This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.”
“In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons… who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
In the first two paragraphs of his influential book, Bernays makes stunningly clear that 1) democracy is a farce, 2) manipulation by hidden forces are at work behind the scenes, and 3) corporate agendas are steering the decisions and mass social patterns of the population.
This is why we are being conquered. Who is the Author of “Authority”. You or them?
The subject was instructed to teach word-pairs to the learner. When the learner made a mistake, the subject was instructed to punish the learner by giving him a shock, 15 volts higher for each mistake.
The learner never received the shocks, but pre-taped audio was triggered when a shock-switch was pressed.
If the experimenter, seated in the same room, was contacted, the experimenter would answer with predefined ‘prods’ (“Please continue”, “Please go on”, “The experiment requires that you go on”, “It is absolutely essential that you continue”, “You have no other choice, you must go on”), starting with the mild prods, and making it more authoritarian for each time the subject contacted the experimenter.
If the subject asked who was responsible if anything would happen to the learner, the experimenter answered “I am responsible”. This gave the subject a relief and many continued.
During the Stanley Milgram Experiment, many subjects showed signs of tension. 3 subjects had “full-blown, uncontrollable seizures”.
Although most subjects were uncomfortable doing it, all 40 subjects obeyed up to 300 volts.
25 of the 40 subjects continued to complete to give shocks until the maximum level of 450 volts was reached.
Conclusion – Obedience to Authority
Before the Stanley Milgram Experiment, experts thought that about 1-3 % of the subjects would not stop giving shocks. They thought that you’d have to be pathological or a psychopath to do so.
Still, 65 % never stopped giving shocks. None stopped when the learner said he had heart-trouble. How could that be? We now believe that it has to do with our almost innate behavior that we should do as told, especially from authority persons.
Stacie Starr was not just any teacher, however. She was the number one finalist in 2014’s “Live with Kelly and Michael” ‘Top Teacher’ award, a people’s choice and enviable contest of sorts. It’s like the “American Idol” for teacher contestants, and it drove her into the national limelight. This prompted many news segments to ask her how it felt to win that kind of recognition. In multiple pieces you can see her getting tearfully choked up at the honor, and calling it one of the greatest days of her entire life. Furthermore, she did not simply download information into her learning-disabled, at-risk students – she taught them how to think. That is why she was recognized!
That was near the end of the 2013-2014 school year, so for her to announce her resignation the following year, nowhere near retirement age, is astonishing and enough to make the greater majority of people to say, “what gives?” In the speech below, she will tell you exactly what gives.
But more than that, this speech is utterly heart wrenching because it erupts in tears of another kind.
Earlier this month, Starr was merely to provide information at a Lorain County Education Forum about PARCC testing as it relates to special education students. PARCC is the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, a coalition of states that is using the test to drive Common Core by assessing students (and teachers) to see how “up to par” they are on the new, fast-paced and nonsensical programming.
What is even more insidious, is that special needs students have been left out of the mix to fall by the wayside. By that I mean, while they are normally allowed to have helps for their disability (like having the test read aloud), they are not allowed any such thing with PARCC. Which means that PARCC is acting outside and above the law with a “survival of the fittest” standard. Starr demonstrates the irony of all the children becoming “left behind” in this new system.
Hear the disturbing account of Robert Oppenheimer, the Manhattan Project, A-Bomb, and Truman’s decision to bomb questions being used for 9th grade reading! She also shows how PARCC and Common Core will contribute to the school-to-prison pipeline. She explains what happens when you ask a modern student a question – “they can. not. think. for themselves.”

Obamacare program costs $50,000 in taxpayer money for every American who gets health insurance, says bombshell budget report
Stunning figure comes from Congressional Budget Office report that revised cost estimates for the next 10 years. Government will spend $1.993 TRILLION over a decade and take in $643 BILLION in new taxes, penalties and fees related to Obamacare. The $1.35 trillion net cost will result in ‘between 24 million and 27 million’ fewer Americans being uninsured – a $50,000 price tag per person at best. The law will still leave ‘between 29 million and 31 million’ nonelderly Americans without medical insurance. Numbers assume Obamacare insurance exchange enrollment will double between now and 2025.

With limited oversight, the wealthy get a charitable tax break
January 2, 2015, San Francisco Chronicle (San Francisco’s leading newspaper)
Nicholas and Jill Woodman … will receive a huge tax deduction for their [charitable] donation of 5.8 million shares of company stock to a donor-advised fund. But there’s no guarantee that one dollar of their October donation will ever be spent [on charity]. Donors gets an immediate, one-time tax break by depositing their money or assets in a donor-advised fund. They can advise the institution holding their money where and when to spend it on their timetable. Boston College Law School Professor Ray Madoff points out, “It is like money-laundering.” There was $54 billion under management in donor-advised funds in 2013. Top financial houses like Fidelity, Schwab and Vanguard have fully embraced donor-advised funds. Fidelity Charitable, with $13.2 billion worth of assets under management, is now the nation’s second-largest charity. Even though organizations like Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable and Vanguard Charitable were founded by their financial house namesakes, they are separate 501(c)3 charities. But while Fidelity Charitable is independent from the financial institution, roughly two-thirds of the money in the charitable arm is invested in Fidelity mutual funds. Madoff said that because investment advisers can charge a fee for managing the money in these accounts, they have a natural incentive to keep the money in these accounts growing — and not leaving.

At first glance, Colorado would seem to be one of the federal health law’s clearest success stories, offering nearly 200 plans and average premiums nearly unchanged in the coming year.
But zoom in closer, and it is clear that a kind of pricing pandemonium is underway, one that offers a case study of the ambitions and limits of the Affordable Care Act during this second year of enrollment.
An analysis by The New York Times shows, for example, that the cost of one midlevel silver plan in Colorado rose 36 percent west of the Rocky Mountains this year, while another dropped nearly 40 percent in the northeastern plains.
It was October 2012. Roei Elkabetz, a brigadier general for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), was explaining his country’s border policing strategies. In his PowerPoint presentation, a photo of the enclosure wall that isolates the Gaza Strip from Israel clicked onscreen. “We have learned lots from Gaza,” he told the audience. “It’s a great laboratory.”
Elkabetz was speaking at a border technology conference and fair surrounded by a dazzling display of technology — the components of his boundary-building lab. There were surveillance balloons with high-powered cameras floating over a desert-camouflaged armored vehicle made by Lockheed Martin. There were seismic sensor systems used to detect the movement of people and other wonders of the modern border-policing world. Around Elkabetz, you could see vivid examples of where the future of such policing was heading, as imagined not by a dystopian science fiction writer but by some of the top corporate techno-innovators on the planet.

The Unknown, Untold True history of the United States.
As we also discussed in Part 2 of this series, it is an indisputable evidentiary fact that the slave trade from Africa to America did not commence until after the War for Independence ended. The slave trade did not start till 1783. While the Royal African Company was recognized in an act of parliament in 1752
Sadly, there is one such state and country in existence today – only one out of 193 members of the United Nations– that not only endorses the notion of slavery in its laws, but has embedded it in its own constitution. Worse still, this regime considers slavery its Divine and moral right – putting itself in direct opposition to all major religions and all history of civilized society and all forms of international law. Even worse still, by its own false constitution being a corruption to the original documents of its founders, this imposter regime considers that it has a legal right and commission to practice slavery across the planet and not just within the bounds of the nation it holds hostage. Thus, this regime is the personification of the parasite, and Enemy No. 1 to the survival of our species.
This is what this regime inserted into its own fake constitution in 1864 without due process, to make Slavery a Divine and Moral Right:
Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Now did you read it correctly or did you misread it as so many people are taught to do. Do these words abolish slavery forever? Or do these words merely adapt slavery and refine slavery into a moral and legal right, being even more perverse than prior to their drafting? Does it not state that slavery and involuntary servitude are to be used as punishment and that criminals are to be the new term for slaves? Does it not also claim a mandate to pursue such anti-Christ thinking not only within the United States but to anywhere else they claim jurisdiction?
So there you have it, the United States is the only country on the planet that explicitly states Slavery as a moral and legal right by its constitution in open defiance to the norms of civilized society and the rest of the world. Now, if you are concerned – and you should be – remember that this thirteenth amendment is a terrible and horrible fraud, that really shouldn’t even be allowed to stand.
The Original Thirteenth Amendment of the United States was ratified and passed in 1819 and forbid anyone in the United States from receiving payment, compensation or titles or working for foreign powers. In 2013, I provided through the blog the irrefutable evidence from surviving official Congressional papers and Public Statutes not destroyed in the great purge of 1865 onwards that prove the existence of the true 13th amendment.
So why did the parasite New York bankers behind the war machine of the North present the false thirteenth amendment in 1864 to perpetuate slavery? And how did they get away with it given all the laws in the world against slavery? To answer that, we need to return to some of the missing documents and facts of the period of 1860 to 1876 that we were not able to cover in the previous parts of this series.
