Mike Adams ~ Pet Treats Found Contaminated With Heavy Metals Lead, Mercury And Cadmium

NaturalNews  April 21 2014

mikeAdamsMy food science research in the Natural News Forensic Food Labs has turned up yet another alarming discovery… and this time, it’s about pet treats that may be poisoning your dogs and cats with toxic heavy metals.

Over the last several months, I’ve been testing popular brands of pet treats sold by retailers like Amazon.com, and what I found is downright alarming:

• An astonishing 1.8 ppm of lead in Mundy Rawhide Gourmet Dog Treats made by a company called Cadet. The treats are made in China and labeled “NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.”

• A startling 6 ppm of cadmium found in “Red Shrimp” reptile treats made by Zoo Med.

• A shocking level of mercury — over 0.5 ppm found in “Ocean Whitefish” cat treats made by PureBites and labeled “100% natural” and “made in the USA.”

• Over 1.5 ppm lead found in “Natural Rawhide Rings” dog treats from a company called PetSafe. The product package says “Protect. Teach. Love.” and is made in Taiwan.

See the full results right now for over 16 products at the Natural News Forensic Food Labs results page.

All results were achieved via ICP-MS laboratory testing that I conducted myself, using EPA-approved methodology variations. The Natural News Forensic Food Lab is in the process of achieving ISO 17025 accreditation.

Watch out! You may be poisoning your pet

What these results show is that high levels of toxic heavy metals are commonly found in pet treats. Even worse, these heavy metals are invisible to the human eye, and because they aren’t labeled on products, there’s no way to know how much lead, mercury, cadmium or arsenic you may be unintentionally feeding to your pet.

Mike Adams ~ American Revolution 2.0 Has Begun: Battle Of Bunkerville Won By The People Without Firing A Single Shot

NaturalNews  April 13 2014

“We were among 500 militiamen at the gates [of the BLM cattle compound]. The militia went muzzle to muzzle with BLM. Fingers on triggers, safeties off. We told them we’re not backing down and we are prepared to lay our lives on the lines for these principles.” — actual quote relayed to Natural News from an American Citizen who took part in the raid on the BLM cattle compounds to free Bundy’s cattle. The BLM later surrendered and evacuated the area, fearing for their lives.

The second American Revolution has begun. You are watching history unfold in real time now, and of course the lamestream media has intentionally decided U.S. history isn’t worth covering because, frankly stated, the media is largely run by anti-American interests who absolutely do not want any victory by the People to be broadcast anywhere.

While the U.S. government claims to be supportive of freedom in Kiev or Iraq, it is absolutely terrified of freedom within U.S. borders.

Among big media, only Fox News has dared cover this story with anything resembling responsible reporting, as you can see in this video. The video text says “Govt backs down due to safety concerns.” In reality, BLM backed down because they were grossly out-gunned and didn’t want to die.

In this video, Fox Radio host Todd Starnes says, “For the past five years, we’ve seen the American people become increasingly frustrated with these government intrusions into their lives. [A tweet characterized this] as the 1st salvo of the American Revolution.”

I couldn’t agree more. This was the 1st salvo of the American Revolution, and the framework of the Revolution has now been cast. The People now realize they can defeat tyranny by merely showing up in huge numbers armed mostly with mobile phones and video cameras (plus lawfully-obtained firearms as needed).

What you are seeing here is precisely the reason why the federal government has been pushing so hard to criminalize private firearms ownership. The government knows that as long as citizens own firearms, there is a balance of power in America. When citizens are denied the right to own those firearms, power shifts to those who own the guns (i.e. the government) who can then engage in unlimited tyranny, confiscation, intimidation and violence against the People who are left utterly defenseless.

Mike Adams ~ BLM Fracking Racket Exposed! Armed Siege And Cattle Theft From Bundy Ranch Really About Fracking Leases

NaturalNews  April 11 2014

mikeAdamsThe Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an “endangered tortoise.” But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.

This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870′s. The “Gold Butte” area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.

What’s also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself.

Mike Adams ~ Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge

NaturalNews  April 9 2014

mikeAdamsOne of the most powerful yet secretive groups in all of food activism is Organic Spies, a group of dedicated researchers and whistleblowers who first came to fame by exposing Whole Foods employees lying on camera about GMOs being sold in their stores.

That story, exclusively released by Natural News, ultimately helped push Whole Foods to announce mandatory GMO labeling across all their stores by 2018 – an enormous victory for honest labeling (if indeed Whole Foods makes good on their promise).

Now Organic Spies has partnered with Food Democracy Now to launch another groundbreaking video: the Monsanto Stock Plunge.

Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge targets Fidelity, Vanguard and State Street

Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge was designed to make people aware that they may inadvertently own Monsanto stock through the mutual funds they hold.

Fidelity, Vanguard and State Street mutual funds own and control enormous volumes of Monsanto stock. As is common in Wall Street investing, this is all done with total disregard for anything resembling ethics, respect for life, concern for the ecosystem, compassion for human health, etc. These mutual funds aren’t interested in doing what’s right; they’re interested in doing what’s profitable!

Mike Adams ~ Organic Mangosteen Powder Found Heavily Contaminated With Lead

NaturalNews  April 1 2014

MangosteenPowderUSDA certified organic mangosteen powder imported into the USA from Thailand and sold as a bulk material to numerous superfood manufacturers and retailers has been confirmed at the Natural News Forensic Food Labs to be heavily contaminated with alarming levels of lead (see laboratory results below). While the Certificate of Analysis (C of A) for the material claims the mangosteen powder contains just .056 ppm of lead (56 ppb), triple lab testing by Mike Adams at the Natural News Forensic Food Labs has confirmed the powder actually contains over 11 ppm of lead (11,000+ ppb), a truly alarming concentration of a toxic substance.

This heavily contaminated organic mangosteen powder is currently offered for sale in bulk quantities to anyone who wishes to buy it, repackage it, and retail it in the USA. This material could theoretically appear in any mangosteen product sold throughout the USA, including superfood powders, bulk powders sold on Amazon.com and even in mangosteen beverages.

Nearly 100 times more toxic lead

A “normal” mangosteen powder will typically show only 0.12 to 0.17 ppm of lead. But this USDA certified organic mangosteen powder contains nearly 100 times the typical levels of lead (and is obviously contaminated). This also tells you that in some cases, “organic” means nothing at all.

Mike Adams ~ USDA To Allow U.S. To Be Overrun With Contaminated Chicken From China

NaturalNews  November 13 2013

The USDA has announced its intention to allow China-grown chicken meat to be imported into the USA. “The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that China is eligible to export processed, cooked chicken to the United States,” says an official announcement on the USDA website.

The announcement goes on to ridiculously claim that the USDA “has determined that China’s poultry processing inspection system is equivalent to that of the United States, and cooked chicken imported from China would be processed under equivalent conditions as in the United States.”

This statement holds about as much water as Obama’s claim that “you can keep your health plan if you like it.” It’s a lie, in other words, and everybody knows it.

USDA to destroy the domestic poultry industry by selling out to China

It’s also a disastrous policy. If put into action, it will not only further destroy the economic base of U.S. farmers and chicken growers, it will also wildly contaminate the chicken supply across the U.S. with China-grown chicken laced with arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium and toxic chemicals.

Mike Adams ~ Betrayed: Democrats Now Admit They Knew All Along That Millions Would Lose Their Existing Health Plans

NaturalNews  October 30 3013

The degree of betrayal found in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is finally coming to the surface… and it’s intense. As a top Democrat admitted today, the Democrats knew all along that Obamacare would cause millions to lose health care coverage. Yet they continued to promote it with premeditated lies such as, “You can keep your current health plan if you like it” and “your health insurance costs will be lower than a phone bill.”

“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would [lose their existing coverage],” said House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer in a NationalReview.com article.

National Review goes on to report this astonishing exchange:

Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with — ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”

In other words, lying to the public is not “wrong.” It’s accurate but not precise!

This is how Democrats think, of course: lie to the public to gain their contrived support, and then when things go wrong, shove a gun in everyone’s face to force them to comply with their Big Government mandates. That’s the entire plan of Obamacare and most socialists: obedience at gunpoint. Mao would have been proud to call Obamacare his own.

Obama administration also knew that “millions could not keep their health insurance

Mike Adams ~ Secret List Of Food Companies Funding GMO-Labeling Opposition Slush Fund Revealed After Illegal Activities Of GMA Exposed

NaturalNews  October 18 2013

As Natural News reported yesterday, the Grocery Manufacturers Association got caught red-handed violating Washington state fair election laws by running a money laundering slush fund designed to conceal the identities of food companies giving money to block I-522.

The CEO of the GMA, Pamela Bailey, reportedly told donors in an email that their identities would be hidden from the public, thereby shielding them from any public backlash even while their money would be used to try to buy the election and defeat GMO labeling (so that consumers would be left in the dark about what they’re buying).

In response to this, the Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson accused the GMA of violating state law, and the AG’s office asked a Superior Court to issue restraining order to force the GMA to comply with state election laws.

Just one day after this scandal surfaced, the GMA apparently decided to stop violating the law and disclose the list of companies that funneled money into its secret slush fund. That list is published below. You can also find the list at HeraldNet.com.

It goes without saying that all these companies are now subject to a lifetime boycott. The GMA itself has now destroyed its own credibility by engaging in mafia-style illegal activities that discredit itself as well as all its members. We have now entered an era where food companies will knowingly violate the law in their desperate attempt to block GMO labeling and hide genetically engineered ingredients in their toxic, disease-causing foods.

Secret slush fund donors revealed

The companies that funneled money into the GMA’s money laundering slush fund are: Continue reading

Mike Adams ~ Obamacare Must Be Scrapped

I worked for an Information Technology (IT) Systems Architecture team and can confirm that Mike’s conclusion – SCRAP IT! – is the only realistic one.  Healthcare.gov represents an absence of project design, testing, and implementation that is mind-boggling to me.

Here’s an idea, guys! Develop a project plan (hint, hint) consisting of AT MINIMUM 1 – system requirements, 2 - system architecture, 3 – system design, 4 – code development, 5 – code beta test  6) scaled roll-out plan 7) Beta test roll-out 8) make revisions to code and/or roll-out, 9 – beta test modified design. If successful 10 – Implement. From the sounds of it they went from 1 to 4 to 10 minus all intervening steps.

Thank you, God! What a bust ~G

NaturalNews  October 11 2013

The mainstream media is reluctantly coming around to the reality that the Healthcare.gov Obamacare exchange is fatally broken. At the same time, the media is also pushing a new story that claims mid-November is the “new deadline” for fixing what they call “Obamacare glitches.” See Reuters for an example.

The media is, of course, just as delusional about Obamacare as Obama worshippers themselves. Consider these three points:

1) The media is lying to you when they describe the problems with Healthcare.gov as “glitches.” In reality, the website suffers from disastrously failed computer code, critically flawed architecture and an astonishing lack of quality control testing. These cannot be fixed with “patches” or “updates” as the media is pretending.

2) It is now abundantly clear from my code analysis of the client-side Javascript that Healthcare.gov needs to be scrapped and redesigned from the start. That is at least a three-year project. Fixing the current code would probably take 3 – 5 years. Yet the absolute hard deadline for all this working is less than 3 months away: January 1, 2014. There is zero chance it will be fully functioning by January 1, 2014.

3) As a result, the IRS will be fining Americans for not purchasing a mandatory insurance product which they are unable to purchase because the government-run exchange system is broken. This is, of course, the epitome of failed government, reaching Orwellian heights of absurdity.

People will “panic” if it’s not fixed

Reuters quotes the chief executive of a health insurance provider saying, “As we get closer to January 1st, if in fact some of these glitches are not fixed, then I think people will become more and more concerned, and maybe panic about it.”

This person, too, is delusional about the real status of the computer code underlying Healthcare.gov. He believes the site merely suffers from a few “glitches” which can be “patched” in a month or two. He does not grasp the reality of just how disastrously broken the Healthcare.gov code really is.
