Ten Reasons Not to Mourn John McCain
  • 1. On July 29, 1967, the spoiled brat McCain pulled a prank and wet-started his jet while aboard the USS Forrestal. His mother lovingly called him a ‘scamp’ and it was well-known he was a practical joker and rule breaker. He finished near rock bottom in a class of over 800 at Annapolis because he tried to break every rule in the book there while also making terrible grades. Such a prank befits his character. The huge flame created touched off a bomb on the plane behind him which led to more bombs going off from other parked planes, which then led to the deaths of 134 sailors. McCain did nothing to help during the fire. He was whisked off the carrier and protected because his father and grandfather were Navy admirals. The Deep State Swamp media has since tried to cover this up. They protect their own.
  • 2. He was not a hero. Getting shot down and captured may make him a victim, but not a hero. He probably didn’t pay attention during a training class, and so he didn’t pull in his arms when he ejected over North Vietnam–and that’s why they were broken. His captors knew he was the progeny of four-star admirals and if anything gave him special treatment. McCain begged for medical treatment and sang like a bird at the ‘Hanoi Hilton’ to get it. He gave up vital intelligence that led to the deaths of more aviators.
  • 3. Upon his return to America he immediately stabbed his wife in the back. She was badly injured in a car accident and he couldn’t be bothered to help her. Instead, he quickly dumped her and married a wealthy heiress who could fund his political career. People get divorced all the time, but the manner in which he proceeded only underscores his cold-hearted selfishness.
  • 4. He’s painted as a happy and brave ‘Maverick’ and strong ‘Independent’ by the Deep State media. Wrong. He was a jackass of major proportions. The ‘Warrior’ of the Senate was owned by the Deep State and George Soros in particular. McCain became a shill for open borders who also supported globalism and carbon taxes to fight ‘climate change.’ At the same time, he was the worst enemy of military veterans, whom he left mistreated and in the lurch. Now there’s a bill in Congress meant to provide aid for vets and they want to name it after their ‘hero,’ McCain. Disgusting.
  • 5. He supported Bush in the Iraq war, even though the entry into that quagmire was based on lies. McCain claimed we would stay there 100 years if necessary. Such stubbornness and war mongering combined with his flash-temper only highlight the fact that he should have been nowhere near the nuke button. McCain was a reckless ‘hot head.’
  • 6. He was a spoiled and entitled brat who was repeatedly backed and bailed out at every turn by his pappy and grandpappy. He should never have been admitted into Annapolis in the first place. He should have been kicked out of Annapolis for his outrageous and rebellious behavior. He crashed a total of five military aircraft. He loved partying more than flying. He should have been kicked out of the Navy for crashing several jets during his daredevil clowning. He should have been nowhere near the Senate. The NeoCons rigged the primaries for McCain who contemptuously laughed at Ron Paul during the debates. He should have been nowhere near the Republican nomination, but the Deep State wanted McCain, the reckless ‘hot head’ to lose to Obama. He chose Sarah Palin as his running mate and years later blamed her for his loss. The hot head backstabber never took responsibility for his actions.
  • 7. He displayed great contempt for his constituents while showing his arrogance and hatred for America by never bothering to resign from the Senate when he knew he had terminal brain cancer. He wanted to go to the grave with his power, thus depriving Arizona from representation.
  • 8. He made sure trade restrictions were softened with Vietnam and hailed as a forgiving man of peace. Wrong! He did it so he could get his Budweiser distributorship there. He was first in line to make money from such legislation. The lust for money and power ruled rule-breaker McCain.
  • 9. He supported ISIS terrorists and wanted us to start another war in Syria, which might have lead to World War III. McCain was not a ‘maverick.’ He was an establishment war-mongering stooge and enabler for the Deep State.
  • 10. He leaked Hillary’s paid-for pack of lies, the Steele Dossier, to James Comey, in an attempt to bring down President Trump. This was illegal, but hey—he’s John McCain! Instead of showing remorse he said, “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell!” A faux conservative, he voted against his own party and President Trump when he could—including his vote to keep ObamaCare. The lying backstabber McCain became much loved and he’s now being profusely praised by the Deep State Swamp and its propaganda media. That only proves what a scumbag he truly was.

Good riddance to the bad rubbish who was John McCain.
—Ben Garrison
PS. Petty to the end, McCain said he did not want Donald Trump to attend his funeral and asked for Swamp Presidents, Obama and Bush to deliver eulogies. That’s all you need to know.
PSS. Suicide?  How do you stop medical treatment one day and the next day you are dead…hmmmm

Caitlin Johnson Addressing Ron Paul Conference

Do NOT Let Them Make A Saint Of This Asshole

My statements about my desire for John McCain to shuffle off this mortal coil sooner rather than later have been highly publicized, and I stand by all of them, but I don’t wish him a painful or agitated end.

And, also, I am going to keep hammering on how very important it is that we refuse to bow to the aggressive demands from establishment loyalists that we be respectful of this warmongering psychopath and his blood-soaked legacy.

…now, while they are telling us that we are not permitted to speak about McCain’s unforgivable record of facilitating military bloodshed in Iraq, Syria, Libya and elsewhere, it is precisely the time to speak. By publicly disrupting the narrative of McCain’s sanctification, we make it harder for the war propagandists to manufacture consent for more war. It really is that simple.

Creating a world where neoconservative war whores experience an appropriate amount of rejection is more important than looking good. Kill their propaganda narratives with mockery and irreverence and help usher in a new world where it is no longer considered okay to be a psychopathic neocon. [PBI: Emphasis added.]

Let death get its wish. Let death die so that life may live. So long, John McCain, you despicable death cultist. I wish you and everyone like you a peaceful, painless, permanent end.

Robert David STEELE Vivas

ROBERT STEELE:  I must agree with Caitlin. John McCain sold out the balance of the prisoners of war left to die in North Viet-Nam when the USA would not pay the last billion or so; he was quickly co-opted by the Deep State and its Zionist underbelly, long being an undeclared unregistered agent of a foreign power, Israel, and he is explictly responsible for both enabling the Clinton Foundation crime wave including the sale of Libya to France, Syria and Yemen to Saudi Arabia, and Uranium One to Russia; and the false flag attacks in Syria funded by Israel and Saudi Arabia and intended to lure our President into putting 150,000 US troops in Syria. John McCain — and his loving closet gay possibly pedophile pal Lindsey Graham — are along with arch-Zionists and Deep Staters Joe Lieberman and Chuck Schumer nothing more than posturing pervert crooks helping the 1% loot not just the US Treasury but the world at large. The degree to which they were all being controlled (and very likely blackmailed) by a combination of CIA and Mossad remains to be established but Wayne Madsen has been quite clear in documenting this being a major issue.

As best I can tell McCain’s decision is Donald Trump’s victory: McCain is choosing God’s justice over public justice quite certain to eviscerate him before 2020. He died — one suspects with an assisted suicide — last night. The obituaries were ready to roll and so they are. No mention of war crimes or treason. So rolls the fake news in service to to the Deep State.

Like Dick Cheney and Lindsey Graham, John McCain is everything we do NOT want in the Grand Old Party (GOP).

He did not represent the people of Arizona very well, and explicitly turned down my proposal that Fort Huachuca be used as a base for running 50 million gallons a day into Arizona from water desalination plants to be placed on the Gulf of Mexico with an innovative water sharing agreement with both Northern Mexico and the Indian Territories.

Click on Image to Enlarge

He was  — as Caitlin says — a warmonger to which I would add, a warmonger partially but instrumentally responsible for thousands of US deaths, tens of thousands of US amputees, hundreds of thousands of US mental disorders in the aftermath of battle, millions of dead and displaced around the world and especially in the Middle East, and trillions stolen with impunity because he along with all the other Senators turned a blind complicit eye.

Most recently, in direct hateful action, John McCain spread lies about Russians meddling in the election (it was actually his Deep State collaborator, John Brennan, using CIA tools on behalf of Hillary Clinton and seeking to make it look like the Russians with the Vault 7 protocols designed to do just that), and has sought to undermine the grand strategic entente between President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin.

The only two people worse than John McCain who deserve the gallows in their lifetime — and who will, like McCain, choose an accelerated natural death over death by hanging — are George H. W. Bush and Dick Cheney (the Clintons are the second string, the Obamas and Rahm Emanuel the third string in US political crime families). This is yet another reason we must have Presidential embrace of #UNRIG Election Reform Act – Integrity Act — the GOP is a co-equal  threat with the DNC to the US Constitution. We must eradicate the Neo-Conservatives and all Zionist collaborators in both parties. We do this by bringing the 70% shut out of our false democracy back into the process: Independents as well as Greens and Libertarians and any other small parties, each deserving of a fair and equal ballot access and honest vote counting. Honest government: authentic, inclusive, truthful, making evidence-based decisions Of, By, and For the 99%, not the 1%. May God Have Mercy on John McCain.

“Golden Library” Found in Caves Built by Giants?

Share on Facebook
Share on Twitter

A little over a year ago, we shared the story surrounding a mysterious discovery, that was once claimed to have been made, deep within cave systems within Ecuador which some believe, were originally man made.

A discovery, that although now concealed from the world, was photographed, studied and documented, thanks to the array of artefacts, which had been amassed by an individual known as father Crespi.

An entire, seemingly alien metallic library, completed with hundreds of sheets of gold, platinum, and other precious metals, hammered out to reveal an astonishing, unknown language, clearly left by a people of tremendous capabilities.

The caves in which this find is claimed to have been made, is known as Cueva de los Tayos. And although any such discovery is denied by the Ecuadorian authorities, the Ecuadorian and interesting united kingdom’s governments, funded an extensive search of the cave systems, soon after the claims became public.

Find Out More >

88,739

It attracted the attention of numerous individual, who travelled into the depths of these caves, including Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.

What we wish to focus on this video however, is the enormous, seemingly man-made caverns, which are to be found within the cave systems.

We feel, if these cave systems are indeed one day admitted, as having once been artificially hewn from the bedrock, then this would undeniably reveal tremendous flaws in academia’s claims, as to the geology and indeed true history of the area.

The cave system is so enormous, it has yet to be fully explored by modern man, yet what has been explored, has revealed highly compelling features, which corroborate earlier claims of an artificial origin.

The Moricz portal for example, named after Juan Moricz, the individual who claims to have originally discovered the metallic library, is clearly of an artificial nature.

Emigrate While You Still Can! Learn More…

The question is, why go to such lengths to construct this natural looking cave system?

Was it all created merely to hide this library?

And if so, how important could the information held within be?

And why did such a find, attract the attention of the first man on the moon?

Did the astronaut know something we are yet to discover?

Juan Moricz signed affidavit dated 8 July 1969, in which, he confessed to a meeting with the Ecuadorian president, where he received complete control over his discovery, provided he could produce photographic evidence, and an independent witness corroborating the discovery.

When Moricz met with von Däniken in 1972, he took him to a secret entrance, through which, they entered a large artificial hall within cave system. Apparently, von Däniken never got to see the library itself, he wrote in his book, The Gold of the Gods: quote,

“The passages all form perfect right angles. Sometimes they are narrow, sometimes wide. The walls are smooth and often seem to be polished. The ceilings are flat and at times look as if they were covered with a kind of glaze… My doubts about the existence of the underground tunnels vanished as if by magic, and I felt tremendously happy. Moricz said passages like those extended for hundreds of miles, under the soils of Ecuador and Peru.” End quote.

It seems unquestionable whether sections of cuevas de los tayos, were indeed man-made, we feel the question now is, who went to these unimaginable efforts, so far back within history?

Why create such a place deep within the earth, with such an intended illusion of natural origin, if you did not seek to hide something.?

Many still believe that the truth, is still hidden deep inside its unexplored caverns, a truth that will force us to completely rewrite the history of mankind.

Even today, the caves remain the obsession of many explorers, seeking to find the answer to its artificially created blocks of stone.

Are the legends true surrounding Cuevos De Los Tayos?

Did it once indeed contain an ancient metallic library, left to us by an ancient civilisation?

We find the evidence to suggest so, highly compelling.

Wolfgang Halbig: In Solidarity with Alex Jones — CT State Police gave False Affidavits about Entering Sandy Hook Elementary School

Mr. President,

Here is a sample of the kind of information that I now have in my possession, which ought to justify calling a Grand Jury by the Attorney General of the State of Connecticut. I have in hand ten affidavits by Connecticut State Troopers, most of which cannot be true because they describe making their entry into Sandy Hook Elementary School by way of a relatively modest hole in the front of the building.

No trained law enforcement officer would have entered that window without first breaking it out using his baton. When you have so many sworn law enforcement willfully and knowingly lying in sworn affidavits regarding the Sandy Hook School “shooting”, it would appear incumbent upon the Governor of Connecticut and the Connecticut State Attorney to open an investigation of the conduct of the investigating authorities.

Moreover, while they may not realize this, but even a dead Adam Lanza deserves his day in court to prove his innocence in light of all the intentional lies by police and their supervisors in their witness statements. Ask yourself about the truthfulness of affidavits like the following, which I have taken from the Sandy Hook script to illustrate why their statements are not credible and appear to be false, which means that those who signed them may have committed perjury.

Here is the content of three of their affidavits with my comments:

Comment: WHY? How is that possible when they the police officers inside could have opened the doors and not disturbed the crime scene? Here is another unbelievable but sworn police officer’s statement.

Comment: Why would so many CT State Troopers enter the broken glass window when other officers are already inside? Why go through the broken glass window exposing you to serious injury?

Comment: HOW CAN YOU NOT REMEMBER?  The lie comes in a later report. How can a sworn trained police officer not remember how he and the other officers entered the school on 14 December 2012.

I have ten of these sworn affidavits—but I have to stop with these three as examples, because, as a former Florida State Trooper, having to read these police officers’ witness statements as to their actions on 14 December 2012 is an insult to every police officer who puts his or her life on the line of duty every single day.

Just to make the obvious point, officers are not going to enter a jagged class opening where they might cut their uniforms or enlarge the opening and thereby affect the crime scene. Even The Three Stooges would have done better, where Moe would have entered and then opened the door for Curly and Joe.

Every school district, private and parochial, is now having to deal with Sandy Hook, when it has become increasingly evident, based on evidence in my possession, that Sandy Hook was a drill, not a real event. It was a FALSE FLAG event, orchestrated by DHS , and the government – including the government now under your leadership, appears committed to lying about this event to the public and the Courts.

Very respectfully,
Wolfgang Halbig

Wolfgang Halbig is a former Florida State Trooper and US Customs Agent with 36 years of experience in public school administration. A nationally recognized school safety expert, he began his inquiries about Sandy Hook to learn what had happened there in order to advise other school systems how to avoid it happening to them. He found his FOIA requests were not being answered and his phone calls were not being returned. Before he knew it, two homicide detectives from the local precinct were on the steps of his home in a gated community in South Florida, explaining that they were there at the request of the CT State Police and that, if he continued to ask questions about Sandy Hook, then he would be prosecuted.

Robert Steele & Martin Armstrong: Bullshit on Impeachment, Time to End Two-Party Tyranny, Deepen Information Sharing Between Trump and Putin Against Deep State

Cultural IntelligencePeace Intelligence

Robert David STEELE Vivas

I marvel at the persistent mendacity of the media, including Faux News. Politicians have always given hush money to prostitutes, porn stars, pole boys, and more.   The amount of hush money paid by  the  Obamas and Clintons very likely exceeds that paid by Trump by a factor of ten — plus the Clintons simply murder witnesses, over 100 of them by one recent count, never mind their treason, pedophilia, charity fraud, and electoral fraud.  The upside of Stormy Daniels is that she is not a child — it confirms Trumps’ penchant for aging heterosexual porn stars and playmates, very adult.   Still shameful to his elegant wife who helped him win the election, but he is a genius on other fronts and on balance he is just what we need now.

The President cannot be impeached for anything he did prior to becoming President.  This is a bullshit story from word one.

Below is a somewhat rushed commentary from Martin Armstrong, whose economic and political forecasting I admire. Note his emphasis in closing on how the two-party tyranny is terrified of  US law enforcement having full access to Russians and vice versa. The Deep State is going down.

What Politics Regards us as the Great Unwashed & We the Subjects not People

This is NOT about Trump as an individual, this is all about keeping the swamp filled. He cannot be impeached for any act PRIOR to becoming President and anything that took place during the campaign is a gray area. Make no mistake about it, BOTH Republicans and Democrats are behind the curtain cooperating on this one. Just as they were out to destroy the Tea Party, they have targeted Trump and this is all about PRESERVING the establishment.

I (Robert) will add my own prediction: the US public is not stupid, they are fed up with the witch hunt and the false flag propaganda fear-mongering, the GOP will not just hold the House but increase its seats slightly. Not clear to me is whether the President will use his speech on 9/11 to order the criminal grand jury on  9/11 asked for in the Southern District of New York, and also embrace the Barry Mcllvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act, demanding that Congress pass that Act before election  day. Not clear to me is whether the President is ready to throw the press out of the White House, create a proper Truth Channel, and empower the  70% of the public now disenfranchised by the two-party tyranny that enables the Deep State and Shadow Government,   by sponsoring the Election Reform Act of 2018 —  the #UNRIG Integrity Act — and funding paper ballots counted publicly on site for federal elections in November 2018 — which BURIES the foreign meddling issue.

On balance, I regard 80% of what the public is being told as absolute crap, and 80% of what the President is doing to be utter genius. My sole concern is that  he is not connecting to the 99%, which 9/11 & Sandy Hook Truth combined with an Election Reform Act and reinforced by a Truth Channel, would do.

Dr. Eowyn: In Solidarity with Alex Jones — Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence Sandy Hook was moving to Chalk Hill months before ‘massacre’

07 Other AtrocitiesCorruptionGovernmentIO Deeds of WarLaw EnforcementMedia

Dr. Eowyn: In Solidarity with Alex Jones — Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence Sandy Hook was moving to Chalk Hill months before ‘massacre’

Mr. President,

We have been told that after, the massacre on 14 December 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) relocated to an empty school in neighboring Monroe, CT — Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd. — until a swanky new SHES was rebuilt with the $50 million from Connecticut. But Wolfgang Halbig has now acquired five proofs that SHES had moved to Chalk Hill months before the massacre:

  • An email exchange between the principal and the school custodian on moving the school.
  • An invoice from Dean Foods of a food delivery to SHES at Chalk Hill in Monroe.
  • A spreadsheet listing invoices of Dean Foods deliveries to SHES in Monroe.
  • A Dean Foods employee email confirming food deliveries were sent to SHES in Monroe.
  • A USAC form indicating that services were provided Chalk Hill Middle School, even though that specific school has not been used by the Monroe School District since June 2011.

(1) Email on moving SHES

On 19 July 2012, SHES principal Dawn Hochsprung exchanged conspiratorial-toned (“mum’s the word”) email with school custodian Kevin Anzellotti, bemoaning the moving of SHES and a screenshot thereof:

Here are the words as extracted from the screen shot:

Hochsprung: “How does this look? NOT set in stone! I have to notify teachers after we meet next Thursday then we can get moving. Of course, they will need to come in and pack….This is going to be really hard!”

Anzellotti:  “I got it and it is what it is it’s bad for us but I could not what [sic] to be in your shoes as your [sic] telling them but all still have jobs I guess that’s a good thing mums the word.” Emphasis added.

(2) Food service invoice

Dean Foods is a national food and beverage company and the largest dairy company in the United States. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, the company has 66 manufacturing facilities and distributes its products across all 50 states. On April 26, 2012, 8 months before the alleged massacre, Dean Foods prepared an invoice of an order from Sandy Hook Elementary School for “American/Continental” style cuisine. Strangely, the food was to be sent not to 12 Dickinson Drive, Sandy Hook, CT 06482, but to the address of Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd., Monroe, CT. Here’s a screenshot of the invoice:

(3) Dean Foods Spreadsheet

Here is a screenshot of a Spreadsheet listing 15 invoices from 1 September 2012 to 15 December 2012, for food deliveries to SHES at 375 Fan Hill Road in Monroe, which confirms the change in location:

(4) Email from Dean Foods Employee

Halbig received the invoice and spreadsheet from X, an employee of Dean Foods. I have verified the identity of X on LinkedIn, but I’m not revealing X’s name to protect his/her life. Halbig fully intends to introduce X’s emails, the invoice and spreadsheet as evidence should a malicious lawsuit against him go to trial. Below is the email from X confirming that the food orders for SHES were being delivered to the Chalk Hill Middle School address in Monroe, CT. I’ve blacked out the sender’s name:

(5) USAC Form 471

After reading the above, one might well ask: If Sandy Hook Elementary School was moved to Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, what happened to Chalk Hill’s own teachers and students? The answer: Chalk Hill Middle School has also been empty since June 2011! (See news report in CTPost of 30 April 2017.)

Though officially empty since June 2011, Chalk Hill Middle School curiously applied for broadband and Internet connectivity services from Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), as indicated in an USAC Application Form 471 on 13 March 2012. All U.S. public schools and libraries are required by the FCC to use USAC Form 471. Obviously, if Chalk Hill were not in use, there would have been no point:

Nothing about Sandy Hook turns out to be as it was presented to the public. The school itself was closed by 2008 and there were no students there. It was refurbished to serve as the stage for a two-day FEMA drill, for which we even have the manual. Anticipating they would have to be able to account for moving their classes to another location following the fake massacre, they set up Chalk Hill for that role, never in their dreams imagining that anyone would take the time and effort to sort out such an elaborate fraud.

Very respectfully,
Dr. Eowyn

Dr. Eowyn, “Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before ‘massacre’” (18 June 2018) My blog was abruptly removed on 15 August 2018, no doubt because of posts like this one.

Dr. Eowyn, Ph.D., professor emeritus of political science at a U.S. university and author of university press books and countless peer-reviewed articles, is the owner of the blog, Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM), where more than 80 articles of original research on Sandy Hook had already been archived before the publication of Nobody Died at Sandy Hook (2015).. In the early morning hours of August 15, 2018, WordPress arbitrarily and without forewarning took down FOTM, blocking Dr. Eowyn and her readers from accessing the blog. Five days after the site was taken down, WordPress gave the reason as the vague and all-purpose “we no longer feel that your account aligns with our Terms of Service and User Guidelines. As such, you will no longer be permitted to use WordPress.com.”

Phi Beta Iota: Subsequent investigation determined that one persistent fake parent from Sandy Hook was able to get a New York Times article done that initimidated the founder of WordPress.com into closing down any site showing photos of the fake Sandy Hook victims under the pretense of invading the privacy of minors.  There will come a day when all those complicit in the US Government cover-up of any false flag operation can be sued for damages — but first an honest government must be restored.

Russia accuses UK of backing a false flag chemical attack in Syria

Russian defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement that the jihadist group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham is “preparing another provocation of the ‘use of chemical weapons’ by Syrian government forces against the peaceful population of the Idlib province.”

He said the group delivered “eight chlorine tanks” to Jisr al-Shughur town in order to “stage” the attack and that these were later taken to a village eight kilometers (5 miles) away.

Phi Beta Iota: The cabal is desperate.  Trump is not stupid, he knows Bolton is an unregistered agent of a foreign power, Israel; he knows Pence is compromised; he knows Cheney is now thinking about how to do his own assisted suicide, John McCain having led the way. The clean-up has begun.

James Fetzer: In Solidarity with Alex Jones – Sandy Hook Impostors seek Social Media Giants Protection for their Criminal Acts

Mr. President,

In an astonishing exhibition of chutzpah, fake Sandy Hook parent imposters are seeking protection from exposure on the fantastic ground they are being subjected to harassment and bullying, which, under the circumstances, is completely absurd. The Sandy Hook hoax made them rich beyond belief, splitting between $28-130,000,000 in donations from sympathetic but gullible Americans who mistakenly believed that they had lost children–a myth massively propagated by the mainstream media.

Their appeals to Facebook have nothing to do with harassment or bullying but a desperate attempt to ward off their exposure through the social media. The mainstream has already been co-opted by the Deep State, which has been sponsoring fake school shootings in a determined effort to constrict and eventually abolish American’s right to keep and bear arms under the 2nd Amendment–where a nation with 100,000,000 armed citizens cannot be dominated by the forces of tyranny. (See my video below.)

They took an abandoned school and used it as the stage to conduct a two-day FEMA drill. There was a rehearsal on the 13th, going LIVE on the 14th. We have proven they faked the kids out of photographs of older kids when they were younger. Some “parents” may have used photos of themselves as children. Wolfgang has produced photos of eight of the girls all grown up and looking very much alive, where he has affidavits from 3 of them (now high school graduates), who want to regain control over their lives.

You may think of Sandy Hook as a primer on how to make obscene amounts of money by staging faux acts of terrorism The 26 fake families spilt the donations and pocketed at least $1,000,000 apiece. The Newtown School Board was given a grant of $50,000,000 for a new K-4 elementary school, even though the average cost across country is only $7,000,000. With the help of their friends in the media, including Facebook, they are going to continue to profit by their criminal acts of fraud and of theft by deception.

As Wolfgang observed during our conversation on “The Power Hour” (24 January 2018), children from Sandy Hook were featured at the Super Bowl that year and no doubt vast sums were donated on their behalf, but no one knows what happened to the money. The Super Bowl Program did not identify them by name and an injunction has been issued to prevent any of them from being interviewed about their participation. The perps are using the law to protect and benefit themselves. That’s the American way!

Very respectfully,
James Fetzer

DESCRIPTION:

God Bless America. On 15 February 2016, our President, speaking to a wildly enthusiastic crowd in Bluffton, South Carolina, promised that he would find out — and inform the American public — “who really knocked down the World Trade Center.”

As all engaged and informed citizens now know, the 9/11 Commission was a controlled cover-up at the same level of atrocity as 9/11 itself, and totally comparable to the Warren Commission controlled cover-up on the assassination of John F. Kennedy by Lyndon Baines Johnson, Allen Dulles, J. Edgard Hoover, and varied private sector participants as well as the government of Israel, which sent two witnesses to Dallas.

This collection of twenty-seven memoranda, most one page but a few two pages and one four pages, provide the President all he needs to know to do three big things when he gives his planned speech on 9/11 on 11 September 2018:

01 Direct the Attorney General, Jefferson Sessions, to direct the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey S. Berman, to act on the petition for a Grand Jury and criminal investigation into 9/11 as delivered on 10 April 2018 from the Lawyer’s Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, a 54-page petition with 57 categories of evidence about 9/11 crimes.

02 Support and call on Congress to pass — prior to the November 2018 elections — the Bobby Mcllvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act, to be completed and reported out to the President and the Public by 4 July 2019.

03 Utilize the information in this collection to inspire the expelling of the fake news media from the White House, the creation of a two-way truth channel engaging all 200 million US voters, the passage of #UNRIG Election Reform Act to give all #WalkAway voters a fair shake in a broader political system that terminates the two-party tyranny; and an end, for once and for all, of Deep State and Zionist control of the Shadow Government including the secret intelligence community that persists in advancing lies inciting assassination, defamation, and impeachment proceedings against the President.

The two most shocking memoranda reveal that the WTC was condemned by 1989 and all parties including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Mayor of New York City knew the buildings would have to be brought down at a cost of $2B — this provides the commercial insurance fraud motivation and the foundation for the planning of a political false flag operation years in advance; and that 9/11 was used to launder $240 billion dollars used from 1998 to 2001 for a Gold War against Russia — an economic covert war not authorized by Congress or declared to the public, in which Buzzy Krongard, John Brennan, and William Browder appear to have been the principal actors, under the direction of George H. W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and George Tenet.

All of those named are innocent until proven guilty. What this collection does is make it crystal clear to the public who has not been investigated, and why they should be.

U.S. civil war stalemate to end soon; Next phase of planetary liberation to begin

By Benjamin Fulford White Dragon Society

The death, probably by execution, of the traitor John McCain, signals a new phase in the removal of the criminal cabal that has controlled the U.S. since 1913, Pentagon and agency sources agree.  “Traitor McCain may have been the first death penalty by military tribunal, allowed to die with honor like Rommel to protect the Navy’s reputation while spooking the deep state,” is how one Pentagon source described the situation.

The real battle, though, will begin after the U.S. branch of the cabal is removed and it will pit the U.S. military-industrial complex against a loose Eurasian alliance headquartered in Switzerland.

Emigrate While You Still Can! Learn More…

This battle will either end in a world war or a complete remake of post-war institutions like the UN, BIS, IMF, EU, etc.  The key is to target the complex of foundations (plus the Vatican Bank) used by the Khazarian mafia to camouflage their control of the privately owned central banks, the Fortune 500 corporations, and most so-called world leaders.

The fireworks should start in September and intensify in the run-up to the U.S. November midterm elections, where the U.S. branch of the Khazarian mafia is hoping to recover its power and remove U.S. President Donald Trump.

However, keep in mind that Trump so far has been only the lesser of two evils compared to Hillary Clinton.  He has yet to prove he is anything more than a Rothschild agent fighting against the U.S.-based Bush/Clinton/Rockefeller nexus.  Remember, the Trump regime has yet to expose the truth about crimes like 9/11 and Fukushima.  Nor have they tried anything remotely like a jubilee.

Former CIA and Marine intelligence officer Robert David Steele says “9/11 Truth is on the table.  The President promised to get to the bottom of it.  He is undecided about whether to do this before or after the elections, for fear that the crucifixion (cruci “fiction”?) of Dick Cheney and the neo-conservatives working as agents of Zionist Israel would be one election too soon.”  A volume containing a collection of the presidential memoranda prepared by 28 top scholars, spies, and engineers is free online:
https://phibetaiota.net/2018/07/memorandums-for-the-president-on-9-11-experts-say-what-the-9-11-commission-was-too-corrupt-to-address/

The rabbit hole that runs even deeper than 9/11, of course, is the March 11, 2011 (3/11) Fukushima nuclear and tsunami mass-murder event.  On this front, the removal last week of Goldman Sachs Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull of Australia may lead to 3/11 truth coming out, according to two Australian Secret Intelligence Service agents who were involved with Fukushima.

These agents provided evidence to Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in 2010 that a nuclear weapon stolen from…

Gunman ‘clearly targeted other gamers’ at Florida tournament

YouTube: Police: Suspect targeted other gamers
AP
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A California man who played video games to earn money for college and a West Virginian whose e-sports winnings helped support his young family were slain at a Florida tournament where a gunman specifically targeted fellow gamers, authorities said Monday.David Katz, 24, of Baltimore, fatally shot himself after killing the two men and wounding 10 others Sunday inside a pizzeria and bar hosting a “Madden NFL 19” tournament. Katz was among about 130 gamers attending the competition at a mall in Jacksonville.Court records in Maryland reviewed by The Associated Press show Katz had previously been hospitalized for mental illness. Divorce filings from his parents say that as an adolescent he was twice hospitalized in psychiatric facilities and was prescribed antipsychotic and antidepressant medications.

Katz carried two handguns, including one equipped with a laser sight, into the tournament venue but only fired one of them, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams told a news conference Monday. Surveillance video revealed Katz was the only shooter, but his motive remains unknown.

“The suspect clearly targeted other gamers who were in the back room” of the pizzeria, Williams said. “The suspect walked past patrons who were in other parts of the business and focused his attention on the gamers.”

Investigators determined Katz bought both guns in Baltimore within the past month. But Williams said there’s no indication he planned the shooting before Sunday.

In a statement Monday evening EA CEO Andrew Wilson said he is canceling the remaining qualifier events to focus on safety.

“We have made a decision to cancel our three remaining Madden Classic qualifier events while we run a comprehensive review of safety protocols for competitors and spectators.”

The sheriff had previously said nine people were wounded by gunfire, but told reporters Monday the total was 10. All were expected to recover, he said.

The sheriff’s office identified the dead as 22-year-old Elijah Clayton of Woodland Hills, California, and 28-year-old Taylor Robertson of Giles, West Virginia.

Clayton’s parents and other relatives gathered outside police headquarters Monday in Jacksonville. A cousin, Brandi Pettijohn, said the family is “devastated by yet another senseless act of gun violence.” She said Clayton was a good, peaceful man who never had a fistfight.

“He loved football, and out of all the videogames he could play, he settled on and mastered ‘Madden,'” Pettijohn said. “He made a good living gaming, and he saved his earnings so he could afford to go to college to continue his education.”

Robertson, who used the gamer tag “Spotmeplzzz,” won the Madden Classic tournament in 2016. In a YouTube interview published by EA Sports, Robertson said he had played Madden NFL since he was 10 and started playing competitively a few years ago.

“It’s certainly possible for any player to do this,” Robertson said in the video. “You’ve just got to put in the time. You’ve got to grind. You’ve got to play a lot of games and just working on getting better.”

Fellow gamers described Robertson as a family man dedicated to his wife and children.

Gamer Derek Jones, who lost to Robertson in the 2016 tournament, said his onetime rival was “one of the nicest people I ever met.”

“There’s no way that guy did anything to deserve to get shot,” said Jones, who traveled to the Florida tournament from Santa Fe, New Mexico. “He’s got a family at home, and he just came out here to try to win some money for this family.”

Gamer Shay Kivlen of Seattle said he met Clayton, whose gamer tag was Trueboy, about five years ago. They bonded because both of them played games on a PlayStation 4 — which put them at odds with many gamers who prefer Microsoft’s Xbox.

The two friends would chat daily online and see each other about six times a year at gaming tournaments. About a week before the Florida shootings, Kivlen said, he was visiting San Diego and Clayton drove 2 ½ hours in rush hour traffic to meet him.

“He was one of the kindest people, most genuine guys I’ve ever met,” said Kivlen, 21. “He was super real, and that’s what I loved about him. If he was happy, you knew he was happy. He wore his emotions on his sleeve.”

Kivlen and Jones said they barely knew Katz, who seemed to avoid conversation with fellow players during tournaments. Katz’s gameplay was often erratic, Kivlen said.

“He would do kind of weird stuff online that other people wouldn’t do. He would catch a ball and just start jumping out of bounds and stuff when he could have gotten more yards, just hurting himself,” Kivlen said. “I don’t know what he was doing.”

Kivlen, who said he had once beaten Katz for a coveted spot in a tournament, heard secondhand from a friend that Katz was asking for his whereabouts shortly before the shooting.

After losing his single-elimination game Sunday, Kivlen said, he left to take a nap at his hotel about 20 minutes before the attack. He was watching a live stream of the tournament online when the gunfire erupted.

A friend hiding in a bathroom at the venue answered his phone. When he said Kivlen may have been a target, Kivlen called police and an officer was sent to his hotel room for about 90 minutes until they received word that the gunman was dead.

“It just doesn’t make sense why he would do it,” Kivlen said. “In ‘Madden,’ you never get so mad at a loss that you would want to do that.”

Trump takes on Google, alleges bias in searches

By Darlene Superville and Barbara Ortutay, Associated Press | Posted – Aug 28th, 2018 @ 10:59am

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump lashed out at U.S. tech companies Tuesday, accusing Google and others of suppressing conservative voices and “hiding information” and good news. He cited no evidence for the claim, which echoes both his own attacks on the press and a conservative talking point.Google, operator of the world’s most popular search engine, responded by saying: “We never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.”Trump tweeted before dawn: “This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!” Hours later, Larry Kudlow, the president’s top economic adviser, said the White House is “taking a look” at whether Google searches should be subject to some government regulation.

Trump has made similar complaints before, but he carried it a step further Tuesday.

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal?”

He added, without offering evidence, that “96% of results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous.”

A query Tuesday morning several hours after the president tweeted showed stories from CNN, ABC News, Fox News and the MarketWatch business site, among others. A similar search later in the day for “Trump” had Fox News, the president’s favored cable network, among the top results.

Trump tweeted that Google and others “are controlling what we can & cannot see.”

In response, Google said its goal is to make sure users of its search engine get the most relevant answers to their queries quickly.

“Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology,” the Mountain View, California-based company said. “Every year, we issue hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure they surface high-quality content in response to users’ queries.”

“We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment.”

Google searches aim to surface the most relevant pages in response to a user’s query, even before he or she finishes typing. The answers that appear first are the ones Google’s formulas, with some help from human content reviewers, deem to be the most authoritative, informative and relevant. Many factors help decide the initial results, including how much time people spend on a page, how many other pages link to it, how well it’s designed and more.

A search for “why is the sky blue?” for example, yields initial results from NASA, universities and “Scientific American.”

Similarly, entering “Trump” and clicking the “news” tab will produce results from mainstream media outlets that large swaths of the population tend to trust. That is even though Trump has derided some of these outlets as “fake news.”

Trump and some supporters have long accused Silicon Valley companies of being biased against them. But, while some company executives may lean liberal, they have long asserted that their products are without political bias, and indeed no such bias has been proven.

Trump didn’t say what he based his tweets on. But in a blog post over the weekend, conservative activist Paula Boylard had said she found “blatant prioritization of left-leaning and anti-Trump media outlets” in search results.

Boylard based her judgments on which media outlets were left- or right-leaning on a list by Sharyl Attkisson, host of Sinclair Television’s “Full Measure” and author of “The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, Think, and How You Vote.” Sinclair is a significant outlet for conservative views.

Trump began complaining about the issue earlier this month as social media companies moved to ban right-wing “Infowars” conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from their platforms. The president also argues regularly — and falsely — that the news media avoid writing positive stories about him and his administration.

Apple, YouTube and Spotify have permanently removed some of Jones’ content, Facebook has suspended him for 30 days and removed some of his pages, and Twitter gave Jones a weeklong timeout and was mulling deeper changes to try to limit the spread of fake news, misinformation and hate speech.

Trump has not named Jones, who is being sued for saying the 2012 shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was staged, in any tweets on the issue. Jones has since said he believes the shooting did occur and has argued that the lawsuit should be dismissed because he was acting as a journalist.

Trump has praised Jones’ “amazing” reputation.

The issue is also of concern on Capitol Hill, where the House Energy and Commerce Committee, chaired by Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., recently announced that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey will testify before the panel on Sept. 5 about the platform’s algorithms and content monitoring.

Umm… Mass shooting with a 3d printed plastic gun? Good luck getting more than 3-6 shots out of it, since that is all they last for. Plastic and explosions aren’t a good combination. People need to understand 2 things. The constitution allows home made guns. For various reasons both for self-defense and hunting. The 2nd thing is, these plastic guns don’t last more than a few shots at most. There is no way a mass shooting could be accomplished with these guns. However, as unrealistic and ridiculous the threat is, it needs to be taken seriously and the law must be fully enacted and this kid needs to know that even threatening comes with harsh consequences.

I must have missed the parts of the article where they said: 1. He actually had a printed gun. 2. He had a 3d printer of sufficient quality that it produce a gun that could actually fire more than once without exploding. 3. Somebody came up with a 3d gun plan that allows for a rate of fire faster than the muzzle loader like rate currently available. I suppose he could print 30 guns and bring them in on a fork lift and dip back into the crate for each new shot (they are quite bulky), but the fact of the matter is that there is no intelligent reason to fear a 3d printed mass shooting with currently available materials and technology.

Utahn threatened mass school shooting using 3D-printed gun, police say

By Pat Reavy, KSL | Posted – Aug 28th, 2018 @ 12:20pm

SOUTH SALT LAKE — A South Jordan man faces a criminal charge after police say he threatened to commit a mass shooting at a small South Salt Lake school using a gun made from a 3D printer.Austin James David West, 23, was charged Aug. 9 in South Salt Lake Justice Court with making a threat of violence, a class B misdemeanor.On Aug. 8, West was arrested at his home after he talked with another student “about using a gun to shoot students at Broadview University,” according to a Salt Lake County Jail report.

“The statements were forwarded to the university which caused the university dean to be fearful that a school shooting was actually going to take place. An email had to be sent to faculty and students warning them of the threat of a shooting at the school. The school chose to remain open,” the report states.

Broadview Entertainment Arts University is located at 240 E. Morris Avenue (2430 South).

West sent several texts to another student he has known for several years, stating that he would commit a shooting that “people would be talking about,” according to a search warrant affidavit unsealed Tuesday in 3rd District Court.

“The text messages sent by the suspect reference killing people with a 3D printed gun so the gun could not be traced back to him. The message contained images of what appears to be a male in a video holding a rifle while standing over another male that is lying on the ground,” the warrant states.

The messages were allegedly sent on Aug. 7 between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. The other student forwarded the messages to a school professor at 11:20 p.m.

Police interviewed the student who received the messages.

“(He) believed Austin has a fascination with firearms and violence. (He) described Austin as being quite interested in serial killers, school shooters and other mass casualty type events. He described Austin as liking up close and personal violence such as wounds caused by a knife,” according to the affidavit.

“(He) believed Austin could be capable of committing a mass casualty type event such as a school shooting.”

The student also told police that West had been “verbally aggressive” in the past, and that he was fearful of his demeanor, the warrant says.

Police served a warrant at West’s South Jordan home on Aug. 8 where he lives with his parents and seized a 3D printer, according to the affidavit. His next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 26.

On Monday, a federal judge in Seattle approved a motion to block a Texas man from releasing blueprints that could be downloaded online for 3D-printed guns.

The Iodine Deprivation Conspiracy

Another helping of crow

Anyone who has followed my advice and tried to get Lugol’s solution at pet stores is probably disappointed. I finally tried to do it myself, which I assumed would be as easy as falling off a log, and struck out. It would seem that the DEA has made it necessary to get the 5% solution via mail order and pay $10 S&H, thus preventing anonymous, “low-cost” purchases of this strength which is apparently more useful in meth production than the 2% solution. (The 5% version costs a couple of bucks per ounce in large quantities for companies “registered” with the DEA. “Registration” is very involved and expensive, and it not available to consumers. The DEA has to limit the number of people allowed to buy large quantities in order to keep the situation under control.)

In the course of searching the internet for a reasonably-priced source, I discovered that Swanson’s, a reputable source of all sorts of dietary supplements, carries J. Crow’s USP-certified 2% Lugol’s solution for about $10 (2 oz), plus about $5 S&H (via USPS first class). So, for me, the choice is obvious. While you’re at it, you can order some other items which scientists routinely find to be useful in preventing degenerative disease, but which the mainstream media (which sells ads to pharmaceutical companies) periodically assure us are useless.

The Iodine-Deprivation Conspiracy [1]

Rev D [article revision – see notes]

From about 1840 until about 1950, doctors used a mixture of water, potassium iodide, and iodine crystals developed by Dr. Jean Lugol of France, known as Lugol’s solution, to treat wide variety of ailments. In the mid 1940’s, apparent agents of the pharmaceutical companies conned the medical profession into believing that such high doses of iodine are toxic, and that we require only about 1% of the levels that doctors had found through long experience to be safe and effective. About 60 years later, Guy E. Abraham, M.D. realized that these (apparent) drug-company agents had perpetrated a giant fraud upon the medical profession, and he launched a campaign to snap it out of its anti-iodine spell and to convince them that iodine deficiency is behind many of the diseases which have been baffling them and plaguing mankind.

Through a more rigorous approach than the one which originally led to the widespread use of Lugol’s solution in medical practice, Dr. Abraham and his colleagues established that our bodies require both forms of iodine contained in Lugol’s solution, in the amounts contained in a couple drops of the solution, on a daily basis (proper dosage depends on several factors). Dr. Abraham dubbed his iodine research “The Iodine Project,” and if you search the internet using this term, you will find many articles which are typically quite long and technical. He and his colleagues also turned up some old literature about using Lugol’s solution which the drug-company agents hadn’t managed to destroy.

As part of his research, Dr. Abraham developed Iodoral, which is essentially two drops of Lugol’s solution in the form of a tablet, but with certain advantages. Its main disadvantage is that its long-term cost can be significant for those on a tight budget, whereas Lugol’s solution is dirt cheap over the long term, especially when purchased in larger quantities. But when large doses are required to treat serious conditions, Iodoral is often the only form which the patient can tolerate.

There are quite a few articles on the internet about the benefits of Lugol’s solution and Iodoral. A couple of the better ones are Iodine for Health by Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD, and Iodine: Its Role In Health and Disease by Michael B. Schachter, M.D. For details on using it, I suggest Orthoiodosupplementation. For some people, such as cancer victims, getting the right dosage right away is very important, and they should consult an expert immediately.

The Conspiracy in Action

The following excerpt from Iodine: The Universal Nutrient by Dr. Abraham provides some details on how the medical profession was hypnotized into ignoring the evidence about iodine right under their noses:

Most physicians by the 1950s neglected the rest of the human body, in terms of sufficiency for iodine, and forgot that their predecessors were using amounts of iodine/iodide 2 orders of magnitude greater than the amounts present in the average daily consumption of table salt. This was mainly due to iodophobic publications appearing in the late 1940s and also due to the erroneous assumption that absence of goiter means iodine sufficiency. Published studies on the safe and effective use of Lugol solution in hypo- and hyperthyroidism mysteriously disappeared during the 1940s, concurrent with the appearance of iodophobic publications. The promotion of thyroid extracts and thyroid hormones as an alternative to Lugol solution in the management of iodine deficiency induced goiter and hypothyroidism; and of goitrogens and radioiodide as an alternative to Lugol solution in the management of hyperthyroidism with both alternatives well synchronized with the iodophobic publications. It was a brilliant move and it worked wonderfully. By the 1970s, following the iodophobic publication of Wolf [the “Wizard of Oz” of iodine, whose specious excuses were accepted as scientific fact because of his impressive credentials], physicians concluded that one must avoid inorganic non-radioactive iodine “like leprosy,” unless it was incorporated into the toxic organic iodine-containing drugs. Then, iodine could be tolerated [i.e. the pharmaceutical companies would allow it to be used in this form] because iodine could be blamed for the toxicity of these drugs. [end of excerpt]

Practical aspects of using Lugol’s solution

After some investigating via the internet, I concluded that Lugol’s solution is indeed the most cost-effective means of obtaining sufficient amounts of both forms of iodine required by the body. I have been using “lab grade” solution for over a year, with no noticeable bad effects, and intend to continue to obtain this grade through pet stores, where it is sold for use in aquariums (more on this in other postings). Ideally, Lugol’s solution would be sold in small quantities at a low price through pharmacies, which would require suitable ID, including a fingerprint or retinal scan to prevent it from being used for meth production. But I doubt that’s going to happen, considering the pharmaceutical companies’ war on iodine. In my experience with Lugol’s solution, the main problem is that it causes stains, especially if absorbed (such as by clothing), although if spilled on skin, it will typically be absorbed into the body and disappear within a few hours. Because the glass dropper bottles in which it typically comes can spill when open (which is often), and they can break, I transferred some into a Target-brand eye-drop bottle for everyday use. These eye drops cost approximately $1.50, and the bottles will not contaminate the Lugol’s solution. But if you do this, I highly recommend covering the label so that nobody ends up putting Lugol’s solution in an eye. Another drawback to using these squeeze bottles is that there is a tendency for an extra drop to come out after dispensing the desired dose, so keep a close eye on the nozzle so you’ll know exactly when to stop squeezing.

Based on my research, Lugol’s solution will last indefinitely when stored at room temperature. But in case you’re skeptical, go to Potassium Iodide Anti-Radiation Pill FAQ & iodine sources (PART II) and search for the question about “long term stability of stocked potassium iodide.” (Also see entry below entitled “Antique chemistry text sheds light on Lugol’s solution shelf-life issue.”) Dr. Abraham’s article, quoted above, also states that “the addition of potassium iodide to an aqueous solution of iodine STABILIZES the iodine by forming a complex triodide I3….” Furthermore, a Material Safety Data Sheet on Lugol’s solution refers to it as “stable,” and Les Shannon, VP of Clarkson Labs stated in an e-mail to me that Lugol’s solution is “very stable and should still be good 30 years from now.”

Notes

Rev A 12/22/07: Deleted references to Clarkson Labs as a source, since it no longer sells to individuals. Also deleted references to proposals to change the DEA regs since they’ve been revised.

Rev B 5/31/08: Copied Rev A (bottom of page), made minor clarifications, and posted at top of page.

Rev C 6/7/08 Brought last section, Practical aspects of using Lugol’s solution, up to date, because the DEA has increased restrictions on it since Rev 0.

Rev D 7/3/08

Deleted: Anything sold as “Lugol’s solution” is required by law to be made with pharmaceutical-grade (USP) or superior ingredients. Just be sure to obtain it from a trustworthy source, not from some fly-by-night operator.” [This statement is not precisely correct, but based on what I’ve learned since posting it, anything sold as Lugol’s solution from a reputable source, such as an established manufacturer of aquarium chemicals, is safe for human consumption because the ingredients typically used are tested to higher (ACS) standards. The manufacturers would have to go out of their way to find lower-grade ingredients, and if they did this to save a little money, they would put their reputation and business at risk. It cannot be advertised as safe for human consumption, however, because the “manufacturing process” (mixing iodine with water) has not been USP-certified, and it the end product has not gone through the formality of being tested to USP standards. This is why Lugol’s solution which has not been USP-certified is typically labeled as unfit for human consumption, although it’s probably identical to the version sold for human consumption.]

Antique chemistry text sheds light on Lugol’s solution shelf-life issue (thanks, Google Books!)

“Iodine is slightly soluble in water, one part of the element requiring about 3700 parts of water to dissolve it, forming a yellowish solution, which, on exposure to light, decolorizes with formation of hydriodic acid. The solubility of iodine in water is much increased by the presence of potassium iodide or hydriodic acid. The official Liquor lodi Compositus, U.S.P. (Lugol’s Solution), is a preparation based on this property. In strong alcohol iodine is soluble to the extent of one part in ten of the solvent, forming a dark-brown liquid, which is stronger than the Tincture lodi, U.S.P., which contains 7 parts of iodine and 5 parts of potassium iodide in 100 of alcohol. ALCOHOLIC SOLUTION OF IODINE READILY UNDERGOES DECOMPOSITION UPON STANDING, THE LOSS IN FREE IODINE VARYING FROM 15 TO 25 PER CENT, IN ONE YEAR’S TIME OR EVEN LESS. THE IODINE IS CONVERTED INTO HYDRIODIC ACID AND ETHYL IODIDE. THIS DECOMPOSITION MAY BE PREVENTED BY THE PRESENCE OF POTASSIUM IODIDE AS DIRECTED IN THE U.S.P.” [emphasis added]

Lugol’s solution retailer recommends shaking it immediately before use

Alpha Omega Labs’ web-page on Lugol’s solution indicates that it should be shaken well before using, which I gather is a precaution taken to put any iodine which has come out of solution back into solution, at least temporarily. I haven’t seen such an instruction before, at least made so emphatically. I would suggest transferring some to a Target-brand eyedrop-bottle to eliminate the risk of breaking your bottle of Lugol’s solution while shaking it. Just be certain to cover the original label so that nobody puts LS in one of their eyes before realizing what’s in the bottle. It’s unlikely that anyone would make this mistake, because the nozzle will become discolored by the LS, but better safe than sorry.

‘We are totally happy,’ says paid Amazon workers on Twitter

By Joseph Pisani, Associated Press | Posted – Aug 27th, 2018 @ 5:49pm

NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon is taking an out-of-the box approach to answering its critics — paying workers to be “ambassadors” and tweet full-time about how satisfied they were at their jobs.One worker who Amazon says used to pack boxes at its warehouse in Jacksonville, Florida, tweeted about air circulation at the online retailer’s warehouse being “very good.” Plus, the worker whose account gives her name as Shauntrelle, says workers there get two 30-minute breaks during their 10-hour shifts, something she calls “a benefit.”Others on social media were skeptical of her cheery messages, calling her a bot. Shauntrelle responded to them, too, even with a misspelling: “We are totally noraml and not bots and we are totally happy working for an amazing company.”

The tweets are part of Amazon’s plan to fight back against negative headlines and online chatter about poor working conditions at its warehouses. Workplace experts say negative tweets can be a turnoff to potential employees who have more options during a strong economy. And Amazon will soon need to hire thousands of temporary warehouse workers to pack boxes during the hectic holiday shopping season.

“It’s important that we do a good job of educating people about the actual environment inside our fulfillment centers,” Amazon said.

The “ambassadors,” as Amazon calls them, reassure critics that they are allowed to take bathroom breaks and that they make enough money to pay their bills. Some defend Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s CEO and founder: “Mr. Bezos pays me a very comfortable wage,” one of them wrote, responding to a tweet that compared Amazon’s wages to Bezos’ billions.

Amazon did not say how many workers it has enlisted for its ambassador program. The company also didn’t respond to a request to interview them, but did say the ones quoted in this story are genuine.

The Twitter accounts all look alike: They were created in August and have Amazon’s smile logo at the top of their pages; some have fewer than 20 followers. They clearly state that they are ambassadors for Amazon, but list only their first names. The Associated Press could not verify their names or reach them. Amazon says its ambassadors are not scripted or told what to write.

Amazon has good reason to try to clean up its online reputation. The job market is strong, making it harder to find people to work in its warehouses. Potential employees search Twitter to learn about companies, says David Lewis, CEO of human resources consultancy OperationsInc, and positive messages could “mitigate the sting or bite” of negative ones.

Some of Amazon’s cleanup crew target a loud foe of the company: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. His Twitter account, which has nearly 9 million followers, frequently points out the disparity between Amazon’s median employee pay and Bezos’ vast fortune. When one Twitter user responded to Sanders by suggesting that Amazon employees organize a union, an Amazon ambassador responded : “The only thing I need to organize is my closet.”

Sanders, in an emailed statement, said, “If Amazon actually paid all its workers a living wage and treated them with dignity, they would not have to pay dozens of people to tweet all day.”

Pay at Amazon’s warehouses varies by location, according to its job postings. Its starting pay is $10 an hour at a warehouse in Austin, Texas, and $13.50 an hour in Robbinsville, New Jersey. The median pay for an Amazon employee last year was $28,446, according to government filings, which includes full-time, part-time and temporary workers. In comparison, Bezos’ total compensation was nearly $1.7 million. (Most of Bezos’ wealth is tied to Amazon.com Inc.’s stock price: His 16 percent stake in the company is worth more than $150 billion.)

“As an Amazon employee, I can tell you that I would never feel resentful about Mr. Bezos,” one “ambassador” wrote on Twitter about the disparity.

It’s not just tweets — the ambassadors also want critics to see Amazon’s warehouses for themselves. They post links to warehouse tours that the company has offered for a few years.

“See if you can take a tour,” Shauntrelle the ambassador tweeted to one user. “And then you may have a different opinion about the “famously hideous” amazon that you speak of.”

KSL investigates the pricey cost of airport citation

By Mike Headrick, KSL TV | Posted – Aug 28th, 2018 @ 7:19am

10PM: KSL investigates the pricey cost of airport citation
Mike Headrick, KSL TV
SALT LAKE CITY — It’s probably safe to say nobody likes getting a ticket, especially when that ticket runs you upward of $6,000.When a Utah man contacted the KSL Investigators about his pricey citation, they had one question: is it fair?

Innocent mistake or intentional violation

Aaron Meservy drives for rideshare company Uber. Earlier this year, he picked up a family friend from Salt Lake International Airport.

Rather than using the Uber app, the friend texted Meservy directly asking for a ride. Meservy met the friend in the Uber/Lyft pickup location.

“I had no idea I was breaking any laws,” said Meservy.

An airport officer took notice, and asked Meservy to see the Uber way bill, which is basically a receipt showing the person you’re picking up used the Uber app.

“I told him I was here to pick someone up who wasn’t on the Uber app, and that’s when he gave me the citation,” said Meservy, “I was doing this really to be a nice person. I have never solicited people at the airport.”

Because he was not “on the clock” as an Uber driver, yet playing the role of an Uber driver, Meservy broke airport rules, and the airport fined him for it. “They were treating me as a taxi driver who didn’t have a taxi license,” said Meservy.

Meservey says he made an innocent mistake.

That mistake led to a citation for seven violations for things like no business license, no insurance, no inspection, no department seal, no automated vehicle identification, and no operator’s badge.

Grand total: $6,500.

“An astounding $6,500!” said Meservy, “which blew me away at first.”

Is it fair?

“You know, if you just follow the rules, you won’t have to pay those high fines,” said Nancy Volmer, spokesperson for Salt Lake International Airport.

Volmer says the high fines were established about eight years ago by the city council, to act as a deterrent for unlicensed taxis and Ubers.

The idea was to prevent illegal taxi-like services that aren’t regulated by the city or state, that might not be safe.

“All of the permits and regulations we have in place are to protect the passengers,” said Volmer.

But is it fair?

“You know,” said Volmer, “I think it’s fair for those providers who are following the law.”

Airport numbers show taxi and limo companies make about 65,000 trips to the airport each month.

Uber and Lyft make roughly 110,000.

So, the KSL Investigators went digging through city records to see how big of a problem these illegal pick-ups have been.

The numbers don’t lie

Over the past five years it’s primarily been in the single digits:

But take a look at those four months from February-May in 2015: 166 drivers cited. In some cases, fines ballooned to more than $7,000 per driver.

“That’s because Uber and Lyft were operating out here illegally, so they were being fined for that,” said Volmer.

Once the rideshare companies got the proper permits, Volmer said the number of citations dropped.

There is no indication the cost of illegal pick-ups is going down anytime soon. The belief is, the fines are doing their job. But Meservy argues, it’s too much, forcing him into a financial setback.

Does the punishment fit the crime?

“I mean, even people who are criminals trying to get out on bail, I don’t even know if they pay that much,” said Meservy.

So the KSL Investigators decided to do some comparisons and checked Utah courts for the suggested fines and bail forfeiture for criminal offenses. This is what they found:

Combined, these crimes still cost less than Aaron’s $6,500 non-criminal citation for driving an Uber “off the clock.” In fact, it’s even cheaper to bring a loaded weapon to the airport ($150) than it is to illegally pick someone up on the curb.

“It’s hard for me to say I’m not responsible,” Meservy confesses, “because I do have responsibility.”

But chances are he’ll never do it again, and frankly, he can’t afford to. He works for Uber to put himself through school with a car that’s barely worth more than the fine he had to pay.
