Lie Detectors really work

My blog can get pretty serious sometimes, so here is something on the lighter side:

Are Flu Vaccines useless?

Interesting article examining the science behind flu vaccines: Does the Vaccine Matter?

As is the case with so many drugs, the science is just not there to back up the claims.

Dangers of Swine Flu Vaccination

I saw this article and thought it was important enough to blog:

Urgent lawsuit filed against FDA to halt swine flu vaccines; claims FDA violated federal law

An urgent lawsuit was filed this week by health freedom advocate attorney Jim Turner in an effort to stop widespread inoculations of American citizens with swine flu vaccines. The lawsuit charges that the FDA violated federal law and rushed to approve four swine flu vaccines and failed to scientifically determine the safety and efficacy of the vaccines."The suit will seek an injunction against the FDA from approving the vaccine," attorney Jim Turner told NaturalNews on Thursday evening's Natural News Talk Hour show. "And the core of the argument is that they have not done the proper safety and efficacy tests on the vaccine to allow it to be release at this time."The suit, filed on Friday in the state of New York, seeks to not only reverse the FDA's "approval" of the four H1N1 influenza vaccines, but to asks ask the court to issue an injunction that would halt any mandatory vaccination requirements.According to Turner the FDA is required by law to establish that a vaccine is safe and effective before it can be sold and distributed to the public.

The four H1N1 vaccines and their combined drug enhancing chemical agents (also called “adjuvant combinations”), together more popularly known as the "swine flu” vaccines, apparently have never been safety tested or properly approved by the FDA.

In fact, in many cases, these particular vaccines are being sent to clinics, pharmacies and other health establishments separately from their drug enhancing chemical agents leaving it up to each local vaccine retailer to properly mix the vaccine with the chemical agent, according to information provided by Turner.

With hundreds of millions of Americans potentially being targeted with this vaccine, the potential for improper mixing, improper dosages, and inevitable human error is alarming.Normally, when a pharmaceutical obtains their "FDA approved" status, there is quite a considerable paper trail of scientific scrutiny, peer review, clinical trials and other supporting evidence. However, according to the lawsuit, no such documents exist for the swine flu vaccines. The FDA's approval of these vaccines appears to be quite an outrageous and potentially lethal error.

If true, it means that the FDA has blatantly abandoned medical science and violated its own procedures and regulations in approving not only these four vaccines, but the potentially deadly adjuvant chemicals that combine with them as well.

To date, we note that the FDA has produced no scientific evidence documenting safety tests for any of these swine flu vaccines. There are no published studies, clinical tests, no records of any clinical trials, and no publicly-available paper trail demonstrating that any safety testing was done whatsoever.

"What has been tested?" asked attorney Jim turner. "Where has it been tested? Who reviewed the test? Who looked at the test and said yes they proved safety and efficacy? There is no record that we can find that shows these things have been done."By approving the four vaccines in the absence of such safety testing, the FDA itself stands in direct violation of federal law. "There is a law that they're supposed to follow and they are not following it," Turner added.

Billions of dollars are at stake

One could ask why, then, did the FDA apparently violate the law and push these vaccines into full public distribution without securing the safety testing required by law?
Turner suspects a profit motive may be involved: "They're charging $24.95 to get a vaccine. Multiplied by 100 million people, that's a lot of money. If you do the whole society, you're talking about several billion dollars."In fact, the U.S. vaccination push could ultimately target over 200 million Americans, generating nearly $5 billion in vaccine-related revenues. Cashing in on those revenues, however, requires three things:1) Spreading fear about H1N1 swine flu by exaggerating its dangers.2) Quickly making a vaccine available for sale, even if it has never been thoroughly tested for safety and efficacy.3) Aggressively marketing the vaccines before the H1N1 swine flu fizzles out and can no longer be hyped up as "highly virulent."All three of these conditions are now being pushed aggressively in the U.S. by pharma-influenced health authorities at both the state and federal level. There is a mad, cult-like rush under way to vaccinate American citizens with an unproven, untested chemical that was thrust into distribution in apparent violation of federal law. And if this vaccine is not stopped, the price that may ultimately be paid in terms of lost lives could be quite dire.It all harkens back to 1976 when a previous formulation of the swine flu vaccine paralyzed and killed thousands of Americans.
At that time Turner was one of the attorneys instrumental in successfully halting that vaccine, and he fears a repeat situation could potentially recur today. He told NaturalNews, "[In 1976] they were intending to inoculate 200 million people. We stopped them... and somewhere between 40 and 50 million people were vaccinated. What ultimately brought it down is that a substantial number of people got 'French Polio' [Guillain-Barre syndrome], a paralysis that goes... through the body, and if it goes far enough you die."

Someone talking sense about the economy

A few years ago the "economic experts" were laughing at Peter Schiff when he predicted a collapse in real-estate and a recession. But he turned out to be right.

Here is an interview with him on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Wikipedia - The Controlled Encyclopedia

I've long suspected that Wikipedia was as free as the biases of its core owners and editors allowed. I've seen articles about individuals that are simply hatchet jobs, for example, the entry of one individual in particular who is a natural health advocate and has written best selling books very critical of the pharmaceutical industry, is about as objective as a profit hungry Big Tobacco CEO when asked if he thinks cigarettes cause cancer. (I'm not linking to it because I refuse to spread the lies about the man that the article contains. If you are interested then check out his book: Natural Cures .)

Now the high priests of Wikipedia have decided to ban edits of Scientology related articles by church members. Can you believe that? Wow, what next? Only allow KKK members to edit articles about Jews and African Americans? Ban Mormons from editing articles about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Who made these Wikipedia nerds the arbiters of all knowledge? So much for community editing and contribution. Anyone can contribute to Wikipedia as long as the high priests approve.

To be honest, I have rarely found Wikipedia to be useful because you never really know where the data is coming from. Who wrote it? What is their bias? Then there are all the annotations indicating that something is not backed up or that it is disputed. I'd rather go to a source that tells me who wrote the article so I can evaluate it for myself.

Now and then I have used Wikipedia to get a basic idea about something technical but from now on I'm going elsewhere.

Corruption at the Federal Reserve

Watch this video and then ask yourself: If no-one at the Federal Reserve is keeping track of the trillions of dollars they are handing out then isn't the door wide open to corruption and criminality?
