Low Vitamin D Levels Associated With Death—Majority Deficient

From: Science Daily, Low Vitamin D Levels Associated With Death From Cardiovascular, All Causes

Individuals with lower blood levels of vitamin D appear to have an increased risk of death overall and from cardiovascular causes, according to a new report.

A recent consensus panel estimated that about 50 percent to 60 percent of older individuals in North America and the rest of the world do not have satisfactory vitamin D status, and the situation is similar for younger individuals, according to background information in the article. Blood levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, a measure of blood vitamin D levels, lower than 20 to 30 nanograms per milliliter have been associated with falls, fractures, cancer, immune dysfunction, cardiovascular disease and hypertension. These effects are thought to be mediated by the compound 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, which is produced by the body and also converted from 25-hydroxyvitamin D.

From: Huliq News, Sunshine Vitamin D Vital For Health

For years doctors have been informing the public to stay out of the sun. The sun is bad for you. They have now realized they were wrong because of Vitamin D low levels in our blood. There has been increase in many types of disease in the past 10-15 years and some of it is attributed to Vitamin D deficiency.

Imagine how many BILLIONS of dollars Big Pharma has made and how many MILLIONS of people’s lives have been ruined by Big Pharma and its brother, the media’s suppression of the obvious truth about vitamin D deficiency!

And combine this with their cover-up of the massive iodine deficiency…. Yikes!!!

George Carlin Questioned Received REALITY: “The Consensus Reality is Often INTENTIONALLY Misleading”

From: InfoWars

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pow5_UYKaJ8]

Asked what he thought of the 9/11 truth movement and how Bill Maher’s show was interrupted by truthers at the time, Carlin responded, “I always question the received reality.”

The consensus reality is often intentionally misleading,” he added.

Asked if he would support a new investigation into 9/11, Carlin was skeptical, stating,

They don’t investigate themselves in this country – it would be a whitewash, it would be like the Kennedy thing, it would be like everything.”

“The people who are in charge do what they want and they will always do what they want, power does what it wants to and I wouldn’t trust an investigation….”

U.S. Will Be Complicit If Israel Attacks Iran

From: Democracy Now!

Is Israel Preparing to Bomb Iran?

The New York Times reported Friday that Israel recently carried out a major military exercise that Pentagon officials say appeared to be a rehearsal for a potential bombing attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. More than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighter planes took part in the maneuvers over the eastern Mediterranean and Greece. …

We’re joined right now by blogger, Quaker activist and veteran journalist Helena Cobban from Washington, D.C. She is a contributing editor for the Boston Review and writes regularly on the Middle East for the Christian Science Monitor and the London-based Arabic daily Al-Hayat. Her blog is justworldnews.org. Her latest book is called Re-Engage: America and the World After Bush.

…if they are indeed preparing—Israel is really preparing for an attack on Iran—and this is where it gets extremely scary—we, as Americans, need to understand that that has major and very, very catastrophic consequences for us, because there is no way that any kind of an Israeli bombing raid against Iran could reach the targets that they seek there without going through US-controlled airspace either in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, NATO air space in Turkey or whatever. So, the US would be complicit in that attack, would be seen as that, and would therefore be subject to reprisals, because, you know, launching a military attack on another country is an act of war. Maybe we’ve forgotten that. I guess, no, we haven’t forgotten that, because that’s what we did in Iraq in 2003.

So, if we are complicit in Israel’s act of war against Iran, then the 160,000 US military service people in Iraq are sitting ducks for Iranian reprisal. This is very scary stuff. And, you know, obviously the supply lines that support them in Iraq are long and vulnerable and mainly go through the waters of the Gulf. They could be cut off by the Iranians, but, you know, if the Iranians just did a couple of small things in the Straits of Hormuz and shut the Gulf, and that obviously also majorly affects the international oil market. So, one thing we did see when the report came out Friday was that oil prices spiked again, just with this kind of very sketchy report that the Israelis were upping the ante, upping the tension level against Iran. The oil prices spiked again.

So, this has major consequences for us as Americans. And I have a whole bunch of questions as to what was really going on. I mean, I cannot believe that anybody in the Pentagon would seriously be complicit in allowing Israel to use US planes that were given to Israel for defensive purposes only, to allow Israel to go ahead and bomb Iran, knowing that there would be, as the Iranians have promised and threatened—and we have every reason to believe them—major reprisals against everybody complicit in that attack afterwards. You know, so this is really the Israelis being very reckless in matters where it is the US that is primarily vulnerable.

Israeli Prime Minister: Bush Intends to Act On Iran Before the End of His Term. Many Say $10/Gallon Gas Would Result

From: Consortium News

Unlike the attack on Iraq five years ago, to deal with Iran there need be no massing of troops. And, with the propaganda buildup already well under way, there need be little, if any, forewarning before shock and awe and pox – in the form of air and missile attacks – begin.

This time it will be largely the Air Force’s show, punctuated by missile and air strikes by the Navy. Israeli-American agreement has now been reached at the highest level; the armed forces planners, plotters and pilots are working out the details.

Emerging from a 90-minute White House meeting with President George W. Bush on June 4, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the two leaders were of one mind:

We reached agreement on the need to take care of the Iranian threat. I left with a lot less question marks [than] I had entered with regarding the means, the timetable restrictions, and American resoluteness to deal with the problem. George Bush understands the severity of the Iranian threat and the need to vanquish it, and intends to act on that matter before the end of his term in the White House.”

Lack of Sunspots Causing a Global Cooling Phase

From: The Daily Galaxy

Dark spots, some as large as 50,000 miles in diameter, typically move across the surface of the sun, contracting and expanding as they go. These strange and powerful phenomena are known as sunspots, but now they are all gone. Not even solar physicists know why it’s happening and what this odd solar silence might be indicating for our future.

Although periods of inactivity are normal for the sun, this current period has gone on much longer than usual and scientists are starting to worry—at least a little bit. Recently 100 scientists from Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa and North America gathered to discuss the issue at an international solar conference at Montana State University. Today’s sun is as inactive as it was two years ago, and solar physicists don’t have a clue as to why. …

Dana Longcope, a solar physicist at MSU, said the sun usually operates on an 11-year cycle with maximum activity occurring in the middle of the cycle. The last cycle reached its peak in 2001 and is believed to be just ending now, Longcope said. The next cycle is just beginning and is expected to reach its peak sometime around 2012. But so far nothing is happening. …

In the past, they [solar physicists] observed that the sun once went 50 years without producing sunspots. That period coincided with a little ice age on Earth that lasted from 1650 to 1700. Coincidence? Some scientists say it was, but many worry that it wasn’t.

Geophysicist Phil Chapman, the first Australian to become an astronaut with NASA, said pictures from the US Solar and Heliospheric Observatory also show that there are currently no spots on the sun. He also noted that the world cooled quickly between January last year and January this year, by about 0.7C.

The Health Benefits of Thai Curry Paste & Thai Cuisine

From: Natural News

Capturing the essence of Thai food requires a handful of special ingredients that you likely do not have in your kitchen. This blend of plants is called Thai curry and contains natural preservatives while providing strong medicinal properties. Despite tremendous flavor, the purpose of a curry blend is primarily to prevent food spoilage. We’ll explore the main components of Thai curry in this article before providing three basic recipes to get you started making your own Thai dishes.

While many imagine that Thai curry paste grows on the Thai curry tree, in reality the paste is a blend of many plant foods. This blend will keep indefinitely so it is worth taking the time to understand and to prepare these ingredients.

The Death of The Internet?

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5RQrxkGgCM]

Major telecommunications companies are spending millions lobbying the U.S. congress to make the Internet into a private network. In political lingo this mean abandoning what is called “Net Neutrality”. In common sense terms it’s about the government withdrawing our right to Internet Freedom. This V-Doc. (viral documentary) is about the current threat to Internet Freedom and how we can hold on to the open Internet and our right to communicate.

The only way the telecommunications companies will be successful is if we fail to raise awareness about this situation. If people find out about the fact that we are about to lose our Internet freedom there is no way they will allow congress to do this.

This congressional decision will set a monumental precedent, and thus, impact not just U.S. citizens, but citizens all over world.

George W. Bush Appointed at Least 11, Fellow, Skull & Bones Members to Government Positions

See also the list of Bush’s Skull and Bonesman government appointees, published in Vanity Fair, July 2004 issue

From: Oil Empire, September 30, 2004. Election a ‘win-win situation’ for secretive Bonesmen, By Kris Millegan

Both major presidential candidates [John Kerry and George W. Bush] are members of a small secret society at Yale University – the Order of Skull & Bones. On different Sunday mornings, “Meet the Press” anchor Tim Russert asked George Walker Bush and John Forbes Kerry if they could talk about their memberships in this 172-year-old clandestine club.

Tossed off with nervous laughter, their answers were, “It’s so secret that I can’t talk about it,” and, “Not much, because it’s a secret.”

Should citizens be concerned about this unwillingness to discuss an elite organization? …

Three Bonesmen have occupied the Oval Office: William Howard Taft (who also served as chief justice of the Supreme Court), George Herbert Walker Bush, and his son. Members have included more than 20 U.S. senators, three U.S. Supreme Court justices and myriad lesser officials. …

George W. Bush has appointed 11 fellow Bonesmen to government jobs: Evan Griffith Galbraith, adviser to the U.S. mission to NATO; William Henry Donaldson, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission; George Herbert Walker III, U.S. ambassador to Hungary; Jack Edwin McGregor, member of the advisory board of the St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corp.; Victor Henderson Ashe, member of the board of directors of the Federal National Mortgage Association; Roy Leslie Austin, U.S. ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago; Robert Davis McCallum Jr., associate attorney general; Rex Cowdry, associate director of the White House’s National Economic Council; Edward McNally Sr., associate counsel to the president and general counsel to the Office of Homeland Security; David Batshaw Wiseman, an attorney in the Justice Department’s Civil Division; and James Emanuel Boasberg, an associate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

Michael Reagan in Full, Reverse-Christianity Mode—Twisting America into Full Disgrace

Warning: Disgusting language; though, Michael Reagan said this totally reverse-Christian comment during his midday, nationally broadcasted, conservative, AM radio show.

And he calls himself a going-to-heaven Christian:

A professing Christian, Michael Reagan said that when he dies, he and his father [President Ronald Reagan] and his sister Maureen — who died in 2001 of melanoma — would “dance” together.

But Jesus has a different standard:

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.” (Mt. 5:9)

In the video clip here, Michael Reagan suggests killing Arab and Muslim babies in the most cruel and inhumane fashion, thus revealing the disgusting and mentally depraved mindset of the neocons. For Reagan and the neocons, there will be peace “when everybody in the Middle East is dead.”

Is it possible Reagan wants to one up another scurrilous neocon, Ann Coulter? “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity,” said Coulter after the September 11 attacks. Coulter’s comment was so crazed and psychotic, the neocons at the National Review fired her, but Coulter did not blink. “I am often asked if I still think we should invade [Muslim] countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity. The answer is: Now more than ever!” she said in October, 2004.

Indeed, Reagan did Coulter one better, or that should be worse, when he called for killing everybody in the Middle East, that is to say every Arab and Muslim.

Colorado Congress critter Tom Tancredo was following the neocon script when he suggested bombing Mecca and Medina.

But Reagan’s vividly demented imagination appears to be second to none with his grenade inserted in a child’s….

Is this Paul’s prediction in 2 Timothy realized or what?

But know this,
that in the last days, grievous times will come.

For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of godliness, but having denied its power [trusting instead in the power of the gun – ed.].

Turn away from these [turn the channel – ed.].” (2 Tim. 3:1-5)

Shawn Phillips: The HEARTBEAT of America is a TRUCK—Frightened to Death of the TRUTH

Shawn Phillips: The Ballad of Casey Deiss | Shawn Exiled from USA’s Garbage-FM

This song was on one of my favorite albums during my high school days in Minneapolis, when I had the great blessing of being able to listen to one of the most creative radio stations in the country—KQRS-FM!!

Before they chose $$$commercial$$$ success over artistic achievement, they would actually play large portions of this LP regularly, to my never ending, GREAT DELIGHT! Until the music stopped in 1977:

In the summer of 1968, they [KQRS] started experimenting with freeform progressive rock in the late night hours. It became popular, and by the end of the year, this became the KQRS’ primary format.

By 1977, the freeform rock would give way to a tightly programmed rock approach, courtesy of radio consultants Burkhart/Abrams and their “Superstars” format, which was essentially just the hits from album oriented rock. Loyal KQ92 listeners were VERY UNHAPPY when this happened.

To me, Shawn Phillips opens up whole new horizons as to what can be done musically. He’s an artistic pioneer, not afraid to go where no man has ever tread, climbing the heights with his still (at age-65) more-than-4-octave vocal range. And I don’t recall any other musician who so effectively and not uncomfortably incorporates silence into his/her music, on occasion.

When Shawn is on, he’s mesmerizing. It’s sad that today’s mostly junk radio bans true artists like Shawn.

This is from the album Second Contribution, 1970. Casey was a friend of Shawn’s. And according to Shawn’s just-released DVD, Dianna still is.

Shawn Phillips: The HEARTBEAT of America is a TRUCK—Frightened to Death of the TRUTH

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from Radio Canada Session [1991, CBC’s French Network in Montreal] on Texas Days, African Nights: a musical journey with Shawn Phillips DVD

CBC Host: “Can you relate to that love/hate relationship that we [Canadians] have with the Americans?”

Shawn Phillips: “Yes, I can. I must preface this with the fact that I sell records everywhere in the world. It’s very difficult for me in the United States. America is a country that is frightened to death of the truth. And part of the problem of America right now is that the heartbeat of America is a TRUCK.”

Host: “And it sells commercials.”

Shawn: “And it sells commercials. They want to take as far as the culture and the art, moving back and forth. They want to make it a total business.”

Shawn Phillips: Why I Write Late at Night

“I’ve had a lot of people come up to me…and they want to know: ‘how do you write and when do you write?‘”

Everything that you’ve ever heard that I’ve ever written is written between the hours of 12 o’clock midnight and 6 o’clock in the morning. I have a reason for doing that because in those hours what’s happening is that you’re not so involved in the collective consciousness around you. Because we’re always being constantly bombarded by other minds and energy persona around us. And during those hours, 90% of the world around you is asleep. So you don’t have quite the same pressure going on.”

The trick is once you begin a song, once you begin the first line, don’t leave the room until you’ve written the last line. And it’s the same with anything. When you’re painting or writing a book, finish the paragraph or finish the chapter. If you’re painting, finish that section. But the whole trick is perseverance.”
