ROTARY International argues that vaccine-derived polio, caused by polio vaccines, is somehow caused by NOT ENOUGH children being vaccinated Philosophers Stone a superior example of the circular logic of mainstream medicine, Rotary International has announced that a recent polio outbreak in Syria, caused by the polio vaccine itself, could have been averted if more kids had been vaccinated. Thats right: The polio vaccine is giving kids polio, so we should be sure to vaccinate more kids as quickly as possible. Wait, what?

There are two types of polioviruses: Vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) and wild polioviruses (WPVs). While WPVs have been all but eradicated worldwide, VDPVs keep popping up all over the place.

Caused by the weakened form of the live poliovirus contained in the polio vaccine, VDPVs develop after the vaccine is ingested, replicates in the vaccinated childs gut, and is then excreted. In poor areas like Syria, where war has resulted in compromised sanitation measures, the virus can then spread to other vulnerable children. As it circulates, the virus begins to mutate, and can eventually develop into a strain strong enough to cause paralysis. (Related: Stay in the loop with the latest developments in healthcare at

Rotary insists that if more children are vaccinated, then when the vaccine is excreted and starts spreading, it wont be able to infect other children. While this appears logical on the surface, surely the more intelligent solution is to just not vaccinate any kids at all? Since two of the three known strains of WPVs have already been exterminated, and naturally occurring cases of WPV are few and far between, it seems illogical to insist on vaccinating hundreds of thousands of children 355,000 little kids in Syria alone in an attempt to prevent a disease that is now primarily only caused by the vaccine itself!

Without even a hint of irony, Fran Equiza, UNICEFs representative in Syria, proudly announced, UNICEF applauds local partners and health workers for their extraordinary efforts and commitment to vaccinate children against th...

If You Have A Teenager You Should Be Concerned: Big Pharma Was Just Caught Lying About The HPV Vaccine Philosophers Stone

by Robert F. Kennedy Jr

New Documentary: Watch: The Truth about vaccines

A new study published in Clinical Rheumatology exposes how vaccine manufacturers used phony placebos in clinical trials to conceal a wide range of devastating risks associated with HPV vaccines. Instead of using genuine inert placebos and comparing health impacts over a number of years, as is required for most new drug approvals, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline spiked their placebos with a neurotoxic aluminum adjuvant and cut observation periods to a matter of months.

Researchers from Mexicos National Institute of Cardiology pored over 28 studies published through January 201716 randomized trials and 12 post-marketing case seriespertaining to the three human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines currently on the market globally. In their July 2017 peer-reviewed report, the authors, Manuel Martnez-Lavin and Luis Amezcua-Guerra, uncovered evidence of numerous adverse events, including life-threatening injuries, permanent disabilities, hospitalizations and deaths, reported after vaccination with GlaxoSmithKlines bivalent Cervarix vaccine and Mercks quadrivalent or nine-valent HPV vaccines (Gardasil and Gardasil 9). Pharmaceutical company scientists routinely dismissed, minimized or concealed those injuries using statistical gimmicks and invalid comparisonsdesigned to diminish their relative significance.

Of the 16 HPV vaccine randomized trials, only two used an inert saline placebo. Ten of the sixteen compared the HPV vaccine against a neurotoxicaluminum adjuvant, and four trials used an already-approved aluminum-containing vaccine as the comparison.

Scientific researchers view double-blind placebo trials as the gold standard for testing new drugs. To minimize bias, investigators randomly assign patients to either a treatment group or a control (placebo) group and then compare health outcomes. The standard practice is to compare a new drug against a ...


Monsanto Caught Ghostwriting Its Own GMO Safety Reviews For A Stanford Scientist Philosophers Stone

by Kalee Brown

Monsanto was recently caught ghostwriting pro-GMO content for a Stanford University Fellow, Henry I. Miller. In light of this information and the emails released exposing the companys ties to Miller, the public is now questioning Monsantos influence over both mainstream news and scientific research.

The GMO giant already faces criticism and public scrutiny over their monopoly over the seeds and farming industries, and particularly for their carcinogenic herbicide, RoundUp, which endangers both human health and the environment.

If youve never heard of the term ghostwriting, it refers to when an author writes an article, speech, or other text knowing it will be accredited to another person. This is common practice in the publishing world, as many popular authors simply dont have the time to pump out tons of content, and many other writers dont have the fame to increase the reach of their articles.

Its often a win-win situation, as one writer gets to be credited for more content that theyve simply paid for, while another is able to reach a greater audience by ghostwriting a piece of content under someone elses name. In many cases, ghostwriting allows people to spread information and content to a greater number of people by using another persons name to do so.

However, ghostwriting can become a huge issue when conflicts of interest exist. In the case of Monsanto employees ghostwriting pro-GMO content under a respected Stanford scientists name, its pretty easy to see the ethical issues at hand.

Theresa May's idea of providing certainty is to demand unicorns! AAV

Given Theresa May's lamentable failures to clear up doubts about her Brexit strategy, it's time to consider whether this absolute shambles has come about through abject incompetence, or as more and more people are beginning to suspect, an underhand strategy of deliberately undermining the Brexit process until the negotiations fail. 

Theresa May's reliance on her "no deal is better than a bad deal" rhetoric is a strong indicator that she might actually want the negotiations to fail. Otherwise why on earth does the centrepiece of her negotiating strategy play right into the hands of those in her own party who desperately want the negotiations to fail, by allowing them to characterise any UK concession in the negotiations as proof of a "bad deal", which May has continually portrayed as being a worse option than marching the country over the "no deal" cliff edge?

The suspicion that Theresa May is less than fully committed to achieving a negotiated settlement was further aroused when she rushed to meet her own arbitrary and self-imposed March 2017 deadline for triggering Article 50, starting the clock ticking on the time limited process of leaving the EU before her government had developed anything even remotely resembling a coherent negotiating position. 

What made this rush to trigger Article 50 even worse was that immediately after initiating the time limited process of quitting the EU, she suddenly decided to squander two months of the very limited negotiating period on a needless vanity election.

After wasting two months of the negotiation period in order to throw away her parliamentary majority in a fit of hubris, Theresa May and the Tories have made shockingly little progress on the first stage of the Brexit negotiations that need t...

Neo-Con Traitors, Trumpian Deception, And The Israeli Agenda Philosophers Stone

To refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain the last best hope of earth for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems, is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma that Americans consigned to the ash heap of History   John Traitor McCain

Its a big Club and were not in it. The table is tilted folks, the game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. And thats what our owners want. Its what they count on. They want us willfully ignorant. * George Carlin

Traitor McCain forgets that it was those spurious nationalists that rightly said invading Iraq for Israel was a horrible idea. I suppose he thought invading Iraq was part of our obligation of international leadership.  The Iraqis would beg to differ Mr. McCain. Those crazy nationalists wont soon forget the phony evidence cooked up by McCains handlers in Tel Aviv to deceive our nation into an illegal war. They wont forget disgraced former General Colin Powells fabricated yellowcake uranium speech at the UN and they wont likely forget the little Eichmanns that made up the Project For A New American Century that planned the war for Bibi Netanyahu years before 911.

You might remember some of the authors of this long-planned war in Iraq. There was Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Jeb Bush to name just a few. History wont likely forget McCains support for the unconstitutional and illegal Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act that gutted the Bill of Rights.

What tired dogma is he referring to? Is he talking about our precious American sovereignty that he thinks so little of?  When he said, We have a moral obligation to continue our just cause, did he mean arming terrorists in the Middle East? Traitor McCain was more responsible for the rise of ISIS than any other single person on the planet. The fact that this despicable human stain is still in a position of power should send chills through every American.

Unbelievably, Traitor McCain was giving his recent speech in Philadelphia while receiving The National Constitution Centers Liberty Medal in recognition of his decades of service. This vile, belligerent, warmongering little bully who has broken promise after promise to the people of the State of Arizona and to America should spend his remaining years apologizing to his constituents for his years of lying and his disappointing leadership.

I dont recall McCain ever criticizing Obama the way he has whined about Trump. Obama took some time off from his highly lucrative speech-making to stump for candidates in New Jersey and spoke about the unnamed former reality star turned politician who ha...


That Futurist Decision North Yorks Enquirer

Todays Letter to the Editor, from Bernard BLAGDEN of Hunmanby, is perhaps the most representative of a great many expressions of incomprehension, sadness and anger at Scarborough Borough Councils (almost) last nail in the coffin of The Futurist Theatre, Scarborough.

It omits only one main strand of the general expressed resentment; the name of Councillor Vanda INMAN [Ind. ex-Lab.] the rogue Councillor whose predetermined vote (making it 22:21) effectively conferred a death sentence on The Futurist.

A vestigial scintilla of hope now resides with possible intervention of the Secretary of State, who has been called upon to commute the sentence.


Dear Sir,

I, like many of my fellow Scarborians, am very disappointed at this irreversible decision to destroy The Futurist Theatre.

With all the horrid cladding removed and some minor repairs to superficial damage caused to the stonework by its fitting, this would again be a showcase building.

Then, with the few upgrades that have already been proposed, it would be capable of stageing all the large scale productions available.

All this could be achieved for a great deal less cost to the Council than the demolition cost and would not risk causing any land slippage of the escarpment behind the Theatre, as is likely to happen in direct consequence of the demolition.

Plus, if the Council were prepared to set up a Charitable Trust for the willing and able group to run it, offers have been made by various groups to supply materials and labour FREE of charge to carry out the required work.

This offer has been publicly made with, I believe, no hidden stipulations.

There would be no major disruption to the area during this work and it could, I am told, be executed fairly quickly, unlike the demolition process.

I, like many others, assume that there is some hidden reason for the Leader, Cabinet and Senior Officers wanting to demolish this UNIQUE Theatre, the SIXTH LARGEST OF ITS KIND in ENGLAND, which was, I am given to understand the forerunner of several LONDON Theatres.

From recent publicly released photographs of the interior, it is in near perfect condition with only superficial work to be done prior to re-opening.

The amount of disruption that would be caused during demolition will cause a huge loss of trade to other businesses along the sea front for at least one season and maybe more, a loss that is totally unnecessary.

I do hope that the pleas made by many of us for this decision to be overturned by government departments is successful, as the demolition of The Futurist will be a GREAT LOSS to Scarborough as it is the ONLY QUALITY THEATRE left now, and could be used for a large variety of events and purposes.

Isn't it amazing how short some people's memories seem to be?

Of Course the Labour MP Jared O'Mara's bigoted comments about female celebrities and gays back in the early 2000s were unacceptable, and he's done the right thing by apologising for making them, explaining that his views have changed and then resigning from the Equalities Committee in shame.

However it's impossible not to notice the opportunism of point-scoring Tories like Sarah Wollaston who was literally dripping with hypocrisy when she decided to tweet "Hard to see how anyone with his views was selected and retains the Labour whip. Sheffield Hallam deserves a By-election".

Is it remotely possible that Wollaston has completely forgotten about the furore over the candidate the Tory party fielded in Darlington in the election just four months ago?

Has she really forgotten how it was revealed that the Tory candidate Peter Cuthbertson had written a load of quite extraordinary blog posts attacking the women's movement, LGBT activists and ethnic minorities, praising bigots and homophobes, criticising gay public figures, and whipping up outrage about gay couples adopting children?

Does she seriously expect anyone to believe that she's completely forgotten how Theresa May (who had even made personal visits to Tory target seat of Darlington in order to support Cuth...


Two of the Biggest Bailed Out Derivative Banks, Citi and Merrill, Get Fined for Breaking Derivatives Rules Rigged Game

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens of Wall Street on Parade

Over the past month, with little media attention, both Citigroup and Merrill Lynch have received fines from regulatory bodies for failure to properly report their trading in derivatives an opaque trading arena that played a significant role in bringing down both firms during the financial crisis. As reported by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in 2011, Citigroup received $2.5 trillion in cumulative, secret low cost loans from the Federal Reserve during the 2007-2010 financial crisis while Merrill received $1.9 trillion. These loans, many at almost zero interest rates, were made without the authorization or awareness of Congress. (See GAO chart below.) The loans to the two firms were on top of the publicly disclosed and Congress-approved TARP bailout funds.

Significant portions of the money loaned to Citigroup and Merrill Lynch were authorized by the Federal Reserve to be funneled to the broker-dealer subsidiaries of the firms in London where it found its way into pursuits that remain undisclosed to this day. The GAO noted in its report:

without more complete documentation, how assistance to these broker-dealer subsidiaries satisfied the statutory requirements for using this authority remains unclear. Moreover, without more complete public disclosure of the basis for these actions, these decisions may not be subject to an appropriate level of transparency and accountability.

Derivative losses in the tens of billions of dollars were a major contributor to the financial crisis of 2007-2010. Wall Street banks had used the same counterparty for many of their derivative trades, firms like AIG and Lehman Brothers, who lacked the money to make good on the trades. AIG received a $185 billion bailout from the taxpayer with about half of that money going to pay Wall Street banks for their derivative trades and other exposure to the banks. Lehman filed bankruptcy, leading to panic and contagion on Wall Street

Wannabe MP Rachel Eden and the Zombie Alliance Writings - Gilad Atzmon


I was invited to speak about my new book Being in Time - A Post Political Manifesto at Reading International Festival on October 22 2017. Zionist organisations were outraged. They mounted pressure on the venue and the council. They demanded the event cancelled. They mobilised a Rabbi to terrorise the resilient peace loving solidarity campaigners. Nothing worked. But one Labour Councillor was willing to do the Sabbos Goy job. Rachel Eden didn't bother to check who I am or what I stand for. She wants to be an MP, and she needs the paymasters at the LFI to approve her loyalty. I wish her luck...

Update: The Jewish Chronicle just confirmed that Rachel Eden, who was caught on camera notrecognising Gilad Atzmon and was clueless about his work, was the organiser of the anti Atzmon protest. The JC wrote, "Congregants from the Jewish Community of Berkshire and members of Readings LGBT+ community held a protest outside the event and were joined by Rachel Eden, a Labour councillor on the local authority, who organised the protest." It is important to mention that the JC is lying (as usual) about the most obvious facts. The picketers, as you can count in the video, number between 10 to 15. The only orthodox Jew in the picket is the kippa wearing boy who happened to be the Rabbi's son. Needless to mention that in Gilad's talk we witnessed many more Jews who were actually disgusted by this entire campaign . And as we far as we could see on the ground,  there was one LGBT protester carrying the rainbow flag. The protesters were invited to join the talk. One protester did and was active at the Q&A.

The post Schaeuble says Greece will soon be in a position to borrow from markets appeared first on Keep Talking Greece.



The Tory party have decided to openly pilfer one of Jeremy Corbyn's core economic policies, and in order to defend this astounding U-turn on borrowing to fund public investment, they've resorted to bizarre displays of meaningless economically illiterate jabbering.

This latest screeching U-turn came when the Tory Communities Minister Sajid Javid announced that the government should borrow money to invest in building affordable housing.

The reason this investment strategy is such a massive U-turn is that it completely contradicts the insane Tory austerity narrative, which relies on the economically illiterate fairy story that the only way to balance the national budget is to impose harsh across the board cuts in spending on public infrastructure and services.

After Ed Miliband and Ed Balls torpedoed Labour's chances of winning the 2015 General Election with their insipid and catastrophically uninspiring "austerity-lite" campaign, Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader and began to inject some actual economic sense into the political debate, including a clear manifesto commitment to invest money in the construction of affordable housing.

Wall Street Piles into Cryptocurrencies, Others Speak of Biggest Scam Ever Rigged Game

I dont remember ever having seen crazier times of more pandemic proportions.

By Wolf Richter of WOLF STREET

It is the biggest scam ever, such a huge gigantic scam thats going to blow up in so many peoples faces. Its far worse than anything I was ever doing, explained Jordan Belfort concerning ICOs (initial coin offerings) of cryptocurrencies. The former penny-stock broker portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street should know: He spent 22 months in the hoosegow for securities fraud and money-laundering.

Just about anyone can call themselves a startup, make promises of future products or services, and sell digital tokens to raise funds. These digital tokens become tradable cryptocurrencies. Buyers do not receive any ownership of the startup, which is what traditional startup investors get. Instead theyre usually promised something in the future, such as free access to the service once available. It doesnt really matter what the promises are because people buy the tokens to get rich, hoping that theyre getting into the hottest cryptocurrency on the ground floor. ICOs are not regulated and anything goes.

So far this year, there have been 202 ICOs that have raised just over $3 billion, according to the Financial Times.

Including those ICOs, there are now about 1,000 cryptocurrencies with a total market capitalization of around $170 billion, from bitcoin on down. Hundreds have fizzled, their value has evaporated, and trading activity has died. Whoever bought them has now become the end user of a useless digital token

How did I get to be king of the Jews? Writings - Gilad Atzmon

hope no fake.jpg >Share

By Gilad Atzmon

Yet again, I have managed to unite them all, the Zionists, the so called anti, you name it. For the last few days the Berkshire Orthodox Chief Rabbi has been working hard to cancel my book launch at Reading International Festival. Next, Jonathan Arkush, the chairman of the BOD, a body that claims to represent British Jews, who also hates my guts begged others to cancel my Reading talk.

The mere idea that Reading International Solidarity Centre refused to follow Jewish institutional orders left the Jewish community in horror, no less, according to the Jewish Chronicle. Is it possible that the Goyim are nostalgic about freedom of speech? Is it possible that they are tired of the constant Zionist witch hunt that has been set to silence criticism of Israel and Jewish power? 

In a desperate attempt to make a change, Hope not Hate, an offshoot of the ultra Zionist Searchlight Magazine, was called into action. And guess what, even they couldnt make a change.  Paul Meszaros, apparently a spokesperson for Hope Not Hate wrote: Gilad Atzmon is due to launch his latest book at an event in Reading, yet as a friend to Holocaust deniers and revisionists he should not be given a platform.

One may wonder what is it in this message that conveys hope? Hate towards dissent is a better description.

Atzmon is an antisemite (* who has promoted the works of Holocaust deniers. Meszaros shamelessly links to Arutz Sheva, the rabid rightwing outlet of the Israeli West Bank Settlers. Is this where progressives and New Leftists now find validity?

Are You Infuriated Yet? Rigged Game

You should be. I certainly am.

By Chris Mortenson of Peak Prosperity

More and more, Im encountering people who are simply infuriated with how our leaders are running (or to put it more accurately, ruining) things right now. And I share that fury.

Its perfectly normal human response to be infuriated when an outside agent hurts you, especially if the pain seems unnecessary, illogical or random.

Imagine if your neighbor enjoyed setting off loud explosives at all hours of the day and night. Or if he had a habit of tailgating and brake-checking you every time he saw your car on the road. Youd been well within your rights to be infuriated.

Or to use a much more common example from the real world : When your politicians repeatedly pass laws that hurt you in favor of large corporations that, too, is infuriating. Especially if those actions run directly counter to their campaign promises.

Theres a lot of be infuriated about in the world today, so go ahead and embrace your rage. By doing so, youll be in a better mindset to understand things like Brexit, Catalonia, and Trump, each of which is a reflection of the fury of your fellow citizens, who are finally waking up to the fact that theyve been victims for too long.

An easy prediction to make is that this simmering anger of the populace is going to start boiling over more violently in the coming years. Welcome to the Age of Fury.

Over The Top Dumb

Do you ever get the sense that, as a society, were being dangerously reckless? Perhaps so dumb that we might not recover from the repercussions of our stupidity for many generations, if ever?

There are economic and financial idiocies in motion that are, by themselves, unsolvable predicaments without a peaceful solution. But when combined with resource depletion and declining net energy, theyre positively intractable.

Take for example the hundreds of trillions of dollars-worth of underfunded entitlement and pension promises. Those promises cannot be kept and they cannot be paid. Everybody with a basic comprehension of math can conclude as such.

Yet we continue to operate as if the opposite were true. We comfort ourselves that, somehow, all the promised future payouts will be made in full even though the funds are insolvent, their returns are much lower than the actuarial projections require, and payout demand mercilessly rises each year.

Spoiler alert: This isnt some future disaster lying in wait. Its unfolding right now

Feathers flying and ad homs Is the BBC biased?

News-watch's main findings are:
  • that the BBC invited a third more pro-EU than Eurosceptic speakers to appear during the election campaign.
  • that the BBC, during this period, has placed a heavy one-sided emphasis on the difficulties of withdrawing from the EU.
  • that left-wing voices in favour of withdrawal from the EU were ignored for years by the BBC (of the 5,037 guests speakers on EU matters on Today between 2002 and 2015, only five were left-wing advocates of Brexit - 0.1% of the total speakers on the subject).
The BBC's response has been aggressive (to put it just as mildly): 
We do not recognise the allegations made by News-watch and to describe this as a 'report' would be a gross overstatement for what is a defective and loaded piece of work which wouldn't pass basic academic scrutiny.   
Across the election campaign we heard from a range of voices, provided our audiences with clear and balanced analysis and rigorously scrutinised the issues and this is quite simply as an obvious attempt by a lobby group to discredit the BBC when all we are doing is holding all politicians, no matter their view, to account.
I see that response as a ratcheting-up of the BBC's usual stonewalling whenever reports of this (unwelcome) kind come out - a ratcheting-up made all the easier by that absolutely dreadful Sun 'analysis' of 'BBC bias'...


Start the Week Open Thread Is the BBC biased?

Just because this open thread is headlined 'Start the Week Open Thread' doesn't mean that you have to confine yourself to comments about tomorrow's edition of Radio 4's Start the Week. That would be silly. So please feel free to comment below on any BBC programme you like. Even Strictly (if you really have to). Thank you.
