A Tricky Supreme Court Case Might Completely Shift Cannabis Laws In Canada (Good News)

by

Cannabis_CupcakeAs convoluted and confusing as legislation can sometimes be, there does exist the odd case where it actually works in the people’s favor.

Take, for instance, what is currently happening in a Supreme Court case involving a former weed banker named Owen Edward Smith. Smith was called to Canada’s Supreme Court because the Crown wants to appeal his acquittal and convict him of being a drug dealer.

Back in 2009, Smith was one of the leading cannabis bakers for the Cannabis Buyer’s Club of Canada (now operating under the name Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club), an organization that sold edibles and oils to medical marijuana users. Unfortunately, Smith was eventually charged because it was later revealed that only 5-10 percent of his clients were actually licensed medical marijuana users, obviously a big no-no under Canadian law.

Americans Have No Idea What They Are Eating

“I just eat it and hope that I don’t die.”

We took the streets just to ask people if they could recognize the five-syllable-plus ingredients listed on average food packaging (which are anything but basic even though they are commonly found everywhere).

Hardly anyone could, which begs the question: what in the hell are we actually eating and why aren’t we allowed to know what’s really in our food?

New Alzheimer’s treatment fully restores memory function

brain-tangles_Of the mice that received the treatment, 75 percent got their memory function back.

Australian researchers have come up with a non-invasive ultrasound technology that clears the brain of neurotoxic amyloid plaques – structures that are responsible for memory loss and a decline in cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients.

If a person has Alzheimer’s disease, it’s usually the result of a build-up of two types of lesions – amyloid plaques, and neurofibrillary tangles. Amyloid plaques sit between the neurons and end up as dense clusters of beta-amyloid molecules, a sticky type of protein that clumps together and forms plaques.

Neurofibrillary tangles are found inside the neurons of the brain, and they’re caused by defective tau proteins that clump up into a thick, insoluble mass. This causes tiny filaments called microtubules to get all twisted, which disrupts the transportation of essential materials such as nutrients and organelles along them, just like when you twist up the vacuum cleaner tube.

133 Nations Vow To Destroy America’s NWO

by Dane Wigington | geoengineeringwatch.org

table-with-flagsA great many countries around the world are now banding together against the empire of US hegemony. Though the US mainstream media is not saying a word, the pillars of the power structure that has been wreaking havoc around the globe are beginning to come down. From the insanity of geoengineering to the plunder of weaker countries all over the world, the NWO has been funded by the endless printing of the US dollar. The formerly endless supply of funding for the empire is rapidly coming to an end.

133 G77 Nations vow to destroy America’s New World Order

June 17, 2014. Bolivia. The American and European media are doing everything they can to black this news out. But it’s not going to stay a secret for long. As of this weekend, there’s a new New World Order on Earth and its enemy is the United States, the EU, the UN Security Council and the world’s shadow government led by the IMF and WTO. This new alliance of poor countries wouldn’t be much of a threat, except it includes two-thirds of the world’s nations including China and India.

Bank’s Dealt Massive Blow with High Court Judgement Today: Home owners celebrate

high-courtby Finbar Markey

There’s been a con going on in our Circuit Courts for the last few years. It’s a con that the courts, the legal profession and the banks have all been in on together and the veracity of the claim that it has been a con emerged today from the High Courts and a ruling by Ms. Justice Murphy.

Over the years, in an effort at putting efficiency before the rules of the court, the banks have been applying to the Circuit Courts for possession Orders on family homes. The Circuit Court rules are clear that only matters involving less than €75,000 can be heard in the Circuit Court. Now we know most houses are still worth more than €75,000 and to circumvent the rule the banks have, with the complicity of court Registrar’s and the legal industry, been allowing family home possession applications into the Circuit Courts claiming that the rateable value of the property is within the rules as, they claim, the rateable value of the property is under €253 odd. Today’s ruling by Ms. Justice Murphy simply blows the rateable value argument out of the water.

A home does not have a rateable value and has not had a rateable value since the early 1970s. Activists have been arguing this around the country but their arguments have been falling on deaf ears until now. Today in the High Court a jubilant appellant, appealing an Order of Possession on her home from the Circuit Court, and with the advice, support and backing of the Hub-Ireland, broke the mould. In her judgement Ms. Justice Murphy said…

Israel to ‘anti-vaxxers’: No vaccination, no child support

Rights groups say ‘draconian’ conditioning of welfare benefits on vaccines is discriminatory as Haredim, Bedouin have most to lose from proposed penalty

by Marissa Newman

.When United Torah Judaism inked its coalition agreement with Likud on April 29, party members triumphantly hailed the reversal of a slew of legislative measures implemented by arch-nemesis Yair Lapid, including an increase in monthly child allowances — but it came with one caveat.

Under the terms of the coalition deal, which appointed party member Yaakov Litzman deputy health minister, “the National Insurance law will be amended, such that child allowances will not be given in cases where a parent refuses to vaccinate their child.”

That condition — which did not specify which vaccines would be included — revives a six-year-old debate on the legality of linking over the past few years welfare benefits to vaccinations. It also comes on the heels of a quiet climb in the number of parents opting out of some or all vaccinations, primarily from within some segments of the ultra-Orthodox community as well as Bedouin families in southern Israel with limited access to medical treatment (another group is found among upper-to-middle class Israelis, based on ideological grounds).

The Haredim and Bedouin, among those most resistant to inoculations, are also among Israel’s most impoverished and have the largest families, so they are ultimately the most dependent on the monthly allowances. Hinging benefits on vaccinations, then, puts them in a tight spot.

Elites Panic as Information Control Flounders

Internet-Controlby James Corbett
TheInternationalForecaster.com

Do you want the good news first or the bad news?

Alright, here’s the bad news: Google is about to start ranking sites according to their conformity with mainstream opinion. Or at least that’s what the headlines would have you believe.

The usual sources in the controlled corporate media are telling you that this is a good thing and that only “Anti-science advocates are freaking out about Google truth rankings,” but if that seems like a remarkably blase attitude to take when facing the prospect of a 1984-like reality where the modern-age Ministry of Truth (Google) is going to determine the “truth” of controversial subjects and rank search results accordingly, then keep in mind that such articles are written by the likes of Joanna Rothkopf, daughter of mini-Kissinger and author of “Superclass,” David Rothkopf.

New Scientist–the website that broke the story with their article “Google wants to rank websites based on facts not links“–also framed the story, predictably enough, as “science” versus “anti-science,” starting their article by lamenting the fact that “Anti-vaccination websites make the front page of Google, and fact-free ‘news’ stories spread like wildfire.” The article rejoices in the fact that the good chaps at Google have come up with a bulletproof answer to this mess: “rank websites according to their truthfulness.”

Colombia Ends Crop Dusting Due to Health Concerns from Monsanto Chemical

crop-dustingColombia has made the decision to suspend aerial fumigation of illegal coca plants. Countless people, both in Colombia and abroad, have protested and criticized the fumigations for years. One of the main reasons is that they have wiped out 1,000s of hectares of LEGAL crops belonging to numerous farmers, Afro-Colombians and indigenous people. There were also disastrous environmental impacts such as destroying soil fertility, poisoning water, and pushing the cultivation of coca further into environmentally sensitive regions like the Amazon. Another main reason? The frightening health impacts. Conditions like nausea and vomiting, dermatological rashes and burnings, eye irritations and visual problems, miscarriages, loss of hair, breathing issues including lung cancer, fetal deformations, low sperm count, lowered red blood cell count, and mental health complaints have all been reported.

What are in these fumigations that are causing so much damage? The answer is glyphosate, a toxic herbicide (and main ingredient in RoundUp) developed and patented by Monsanto. So far, at least 1.6 million hectares (3.95 million acres) have been destroyed by aerial fumigations over the past 20 years and were funded and supported by the United States’s “War on Drugs”. Glyphosate is the worst kind of poison. Even after ceasing spraying, glyphosate residues in the soil can become reactivated by the use of phosphate fertilizers or other methods.

BBC admits breaching its own rules by broadcasting pro-Israel propaganda

Will the BBC change its ways now Palestine Solidarity Campaign has forced it to admit pro-Israeli bias in its broadcasts and online articles?

bbc_monkeys_460A BBC investigation has found that one of its senior presenters, Sarah Montague, breached the organization’s editorial standards on impartiality in a radio interview she conducted with Israeli defense minister Moshe Yaalon in March.

The investigation was carried out following allegations of pro-Israel bias against Montague’s interview by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) and a number of concerned individuals who complained to the BBC.

The ruling against Montague is the second time in recent months that the BBC has upheld a complaint initiated by the PSC.

In the first ruling, the BBC’s Editorial Complaints Unit (ECU) agreed with complainants that an online BBC article about Gaza’s tunnels had breached the organization’s accuracy guidelines by presenting its pro-Israel author, Eado Hecht,  as an “independent” defense analyst.

The two ECU rulings highlight just how often the BBC provides an unchallenged platform to Israel’s spokespeople.

Why Are We Still Vaccinating? 25 Questions From A Former Pro-Vaccine Advocate

by Brian Rogers

I used to be pro vaccine. I know the feeling of thinking others were just plain crazy and wrong for not vaccinating their children and themselves. ‘Irresponsible!’ I said when pointing my finger. I’d use the same old arguments about polio and small pox and how vaccines saved us from all those horrible diseases and just swallowing and regurgitating the propaganda I was brought up with. It was only recently, in 2009 that I started questioning my long held beliefs and began digging in to the history, efficacy and safety of vaccines. I was appalled at what I found and the recklessness of those government health agencies entrusted with our health and our children’s safety, and angry with myself that I had put my family’s health at risk by blind faith in others when I was ultimately responsible for the medical decisions of my family.

vaccinebabyWhen I began to put this article together I specifically chose not to include research from or links to websites that are considered untrustworthy by most pro-vaxxers, sites such as Natural News, Mercola, etc. even though I personally trust those sites and much more than I would WebMd and for good reason [a]. Instead I chose to employ basic logic and also incorporate independent and .gov scientific studies-mostly peer review, journals, news from mainstream sources (that pro-vaxxers love and totally trust) and articles that link to other .gov scientific studies, as well as government statistical resources. So, I started writing down questions and then looking for answers. I’ll admit, some of these questions have already been asked by others, but I just expanded upon it to form a helpful list.

I hope the following information helps you in your lifelong journey in search of health, vitality and truth in your own lives and your children’s lives.

1. Why are newborn babies vaccinated on their first day of life against a disease that is primarily transmitted sexually and by needles in drug users?
(Pregnant women are already tested for STD’s prior to birth so there’s no reason to give it to an infant). Interesting to note, of the few vaccines that still are given to infants and STILL has thimerasol in it is Hep B and DipTet (and Flu shot recommended to pregnant women). So, the claim that it has been removed from all vaccines is a lie and misdirection. If they give it to all newborns then ALL the newborns are getting that thimerasol (mercury derivative). “It was removed from many child vaccines in 2002 but remains in some vaccines (e.g., hepatitis B virus and)” Page 21.

2. Why are babies given vaccines to produce antibodies when they do not produce antibodies until after the age of 3 to 6 months?
They get the required antibodies from breastfeeding.

Omar Barghouti On 10 Years Of BDS & Where We Go From Here

Source: Edward Briody Omar Barghouti, founder of BDS and an excellent speaker, discusses the BDS movement, its goals and successes, how Brand Israel is reacting, the decolonisation of the mind, the ethicality of the oppressed, and more. Ten years ago, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel, to last until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights. In that time a global movement has rapidly emerged against Israeli Apartheid, and corporations and campuses across the world have yielded to demands to divest. At the same time, the mainstream of Israeli society has continued to lurch rightward, including the 51-day military assault on Gaza in 2014.

Solar Warden: Secret Space – You live at the bottom of a deep gravity well…

NASA-constellationDepiction of Constellation lauch vehicle (Ares 1)  leaving Earth. Photo NASA

by Michael Salla, PhD

On April 13, 2009, the National Archive Records Administration made available almost 250,000 pages of documents from President Reagan’s administration… The released material may yield insight into a curious comment found in President Reagan’s Diary.

The entry for Tuesday, June 11, 1985 (page 334) reads:

Lunch with 5 top space scientist. It was fascinating. Space truly is the last frontier and some of the developments there in astronomy etc. are like science fiction, except they are real. I learned that our shuttle capacity is such that we could orbit 300 people.

This is curious since the Space Shuttle holds a maximum of eight people and only five were built for space flight.

Even if all five took off fully loaded it would be impossible to place and maintain 300 astronauts in orbit. Was Reagan revealing the existence of a highly classified space program that could accommodate hundreds of astronauts in orbit?

Major Victory for Free Speech in Landmark Settlement

By Claire Bernish

FreeSpeechArrestsAn unprecedented settlement stemming from an incident of mass arrest in 2002 means protesters will no longer be subject to “kettling” in Washington DC, and potentially nationwide. The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund represents the plaintiffs in the class-action suit and calls the settlement “a major victory for First Amendment rights” as police must now implement strict guidelines for managing protests.

In a statement, PCJF Executive Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard said,  

Although many media pundits and politicians have suggested that the social justice movement and the free speech and assembly rights of protesters have to be constricted for the sake of security and order, this settlement disproves that myth.

If you have ever attended a demonstration where police encircled the crowd, preventing movement into or out of the area for any reason — sometimes for hours at a time — often in order to perform massive and indiscriminate arrests, then you have been “kettled”.

On September 27, 2002, demonstrators gathered in Pershing Park in Washington DC during meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. US Park Police coordinated with DC Metropolitan Police to cordon off the park, refused access in or out, then arrested everyone who happened to be trapped inside, including 649 protesters, bystanders, journalists, legal observers, and even tourists — 400 of whom were represented in the class action suit. According to the PCJF statement, “Many were held bound wrist to ankle in stress-and-duress positions on a police gym floor for upwards of 24 hours.”

Frankenweed: What You Need To Know About Monsanto’s Patent On Marijuana

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.

gmo-monsanto-frankenweed-marijuanaDespite marijuana being classified as a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, GMO conglomerate Monsanto was recently approved for a patent on marijuana (U.S. Patent No. 6630507).

At one point in time, you could actually be arrested for NOT growing hemp, as mentioned in the article, “ The Marijuana Conspiracy“:

REFUSING TO GROW HEMP in America during the 17th and 18th Centuries WAS AGAINST THE LAW! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow hemp from 1763 to 1769; Hemp in Colonial Virginia, G. M. Herdon.

Piers Morgan Calls for War

by Kurt Nimmo

piers-morganPiers Morgan, the former CNN show host bounced due to dismal ratings, is calling or all-out war in the Middle East.

Taking to the pages of the Daily Mail, where he is the American editor at large, Morgan argues the ISIS capture of Ramadi in Iraq portends further victories in Baghdad and ultimately in Yemen, Egypt, and Libya.

ISIS is spreading “like a furiously mutating virus” that will not stop “until the whole Middle East is in their clutches,” he writes.

“They will also, inevitably, try to launch big attacks inside America to act as promotional tools back home.”

According to the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, however, ISIS does not pose a threat to America.

Bill Bard says:

Go on then Piers.  ISIS are just the populations not wanting the US puppet governments, namely everyone.
