Human Experimentation Rampant in the United States

flagBy Janet Phelan

In an article in the New Republic in December, 1998, former UNSCOM leader Scott Ritter decried Iraq’s chemical and biological weapons experiments on human subjects. Wrote Ritter,

“We had received credible intelligence that 95 political prisoners had been transferred from the Abu Ghraib Prison to a site in western Iraq, where they had been subjected to lethal testing under the supervision of a special unit from the Military Industrial Commission, under Saddam’s personal authority.”

The stance of the United States and her allies has always been that such experiments bear the watermark of a brutal dictatorship and are never engaged in by the free world.

So when Abu Ghraib again hit the news in 2004, concerning the ongoing torture of prisoners by US forces, the US was swift to act in condemning the reports as constituting isolated incidents and not reflective of US policy.

And then the floodgates opened, with more revelations of torture, CIA “black sites” waterboarding and prisoner rape. And torture became a topic of heated debate.

Those who torture would like you to think that they do not, or that torture is necessary for reasons of “National Security.” However, any first year medical student can tell you that torture is unnecessary to gain confessions, which is the fall- back used by government officials to explain its necessity. All that is needed to obtain such ostensibly highly valued confessions is a good dose of sodium pentothal or another such chemical in the array of truth serum drugs.

What one gains by the use of torture is false confessions. False confessions would be highly valued in the continuing “war on terrorism,” to provide proof that acts of terror are being perpetrated by those who are detained.

Abu Ghraib may or may not have been the locus of experiments by the Iraqi leadership. What is certain is that the US is engaged in experiments on its own people, without informed consent, some of which achieve the definition of torture.

The US Continues to Evade the Mandates of Informed Consent

The issue of informed consent was central to the The Doctors Trials at Nuremberg, where twenty German doctors who experimented on Jews and others, often fatally, were tried and sentenced. What emerged from the Trials was the Nuremberg Code, which mandates that experimental subjects be given information about the nature of the experiment and the right to refuse.

The Nuremberg Code, however, remains a recommendation, not a law.

Some of these current experiments run by the United States are taking place within the borders of the US and some are taking place in foreign countries, with pharmaceutical and defense agencies as primary perpetrators.

As an act of apparent damage control following the 1994 disclosures of US radiation experiments during the Cold War, President Bill Clinton produced a memo, lodged in the Federal Register, calling for strengthened protections for human subjects.

These radiation experiments exposed US citizens to high levels of radiation, without informing them of the risks. According to reports, the radiation caused the deaths of a number of the experimental subjects.

Clinton subsequently established an Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments to review reports and recommend ways to prevent further unethical research from taking place in the future.

The Advisory Committee’s recommendations included mandating informed consent of all human subjects, among other recommendations. However, the Committee´s recommendations were never acted upon. And informed consent, which constitutes the core of the Nuremberg Code, was never codified into law.

Obama Perpetuates the Myth of Legal Protections for Test Subjects

Fast forward to 2010, when another embarrassing experimental project, this time launched by the US Public Health Service in Guatemala, hit the front pages of newspapers. US researchers were reported as deliberately infecting over 1500 human subjects in Guatemala with sexually transmitted diseases. This study took place back in the 1940’s and was effectively covered up for over sixty years.

In response to this disclosure, President Obama directed the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues to “determine if Federal regulations and international standards adequately guard the health and well-being of participants in scientific studies supported by the Federal Government.”

The Commission reported back in December of 2011 with their conclusions that the current US rules would deter such abuses from taking place again.

The Commission failed to take note that research protocols, classified and otherwise, are lacking an informed consent requirement. What this means is that if, for example, an intelligence agency decides to run an experiment using human subjects, that intelligence agency can waive any necessity to inform the subjects and to gain their consent.

The Commission’s report is largely a whitewash. In light of the following facts, it is clear that US nonconsensual human experimentation is rampant. Some of these experiments appear to be classified and some not. In many cases, neither the classified research nor non classified protocols appear to be abiding by the stated need for informed consent.

Children as Lab Rats

On January 4, 2002, President Bush signed into law the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act, which provides incentives for using children in drug trials. The Act offered pharmaceutical companies a six-month exclusivity term in return for their agreement to conduct pediatric tests on drugs. This Act was quickly followed in 2003 by the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA). PREA authorizes FDA to require manufacturers of new drug and biologics products to conduct pediatric studies in certain circumstances.

As a result, drug trials on children have gone through the roof.

An article at medicalkidnap.com states that: “In 2006, they found that there were approximately 45,000 children participating in experiments.”

Massive FDA Crackdown Coming on Natural Product Companies

FDA_Skull_VitaminsBy Mike Adams

Following the confirmation of new FDA head Robert Califf, I have been told by people in the legal field with close ties to FDA staffers that the FDA is planning to ramp up a wave of inspections and crackdowns targeting natural product companies.

This sweeping crackdown assault, I’ve been told, will be invoked under the Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA), which was aggressively pushed into law following a series of highly suspicious outbreaks of E.coli and salmonella in food products in 2010. These outbreaks were widely publicized by the mainstream media which obeyed its propaganda marching orders from the government to whip up a frenzy of irrational fear over all fresh food. From that fear, the political establishment passed the FSMA and Obama signed it into law on January 4, 2011.

 

Saudi Crown Prince Awarded France’s Highest Honor

hollande-saudi-prince-By Stephen Lendman

Saudi Arabia is a family dictatorship masquerading as a nation-state.

It’s one of the world’s most tyrannical regimes, infamous for public beheadings and whippings, as well as numerous other high crimes.

Torture and physical abuse are commonplace. So are arbitrary arrests, along with denial of fundamental human and civil rights.

State terror is official regime policy internally and abroad. So is religious extremism, Wahhabi clerics enforcing their theofascist interpretation of Islam. Shias are considered heretics.

Saudi tyrants want Shia Iran and Syria replaced by totalitarian Sunni dominance, Hezbollah eliminated in Lebanon.

ISIS, Al Qaeda and likeminded terrorist groups represent Wahhabi extremism.

Riyadh partners with America’s imperial wars, supplies ISIS and other terrorist groups with arms, chemical weapons and other material support.

Saudi rulers are among the world’s most ruthless, a crime family posing as legitimate governance – tolerating no opposition to their tyrannical rule.

Since March 2011, they’ve waged US-orchestrated terror-bombing and blockade of Yemen, slaughtering mostly civilians, committing genocide, millions of people at risk.

Last June, its UN ambassador in Geneva, Faisal bin Hassan Trad, was quietly chosen head of a five-member UN Human Rights Council panel, charged with reporting on abuses worldwide – mocking the legitimacy of the initiative.

HRC is a sham operation, serving US-led NATO interests. Former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay (2008 – 2014) was a reliable imperial tool.

France partners in all US wars of aggression. During his visit to Paris last Friday, President Francois Hollande quietly awarded Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Nayef France’s Legion d’Honneur, its highest award, established by Napoleon in May 1802.

The Saudi news agency SPA said it was for his “efforts in the fight against terrorism and extremism” – a shocking perversion of truth.

Angry social media criticism followed, many tweets featuring the hashtag “honte (shame).”

On Sunday, Riyadh carried out its 70th execution this year, a public beheading. Saudi tyrants lop off more heads than ISIS.

China’s Industrial Profits Rise to $120 Billion in Just Two Months

China moneyChina’s industrial profits in the period between January and February grew 4.8 percent against the same period in 2015, National Bureau of Statistics of China (NBS) data showed on Sunday.

BEIJING (Sputnik) — Chinese industrial companies’ profits in the first two months of 2016 grew the fastest since 2014, amounting to 780.7 billion yuan ($120 billion), according to the statistics bureau.

The rise in profits reverses December’s trend, when the profitability of China’s large industrial companies fell 4.7 percent against December 2015. Profits throughout the whole of 2015 also fell, contracting 2.3 percent against 2014 and amounting to 6.36 trillion yuan. Companies earning over 20 million yuan per year in profits were included in the data.The early 2016 drive in profitability comes following months of slowdown in the Chinese economy. China’s growth rates throughout 2014 and 2015 have been the slowest since the 2009 recession, amounting to less than half of the post-recession 2010 peak of over 12 percent. The yuan has seen numerous devaluations, while Chinese stock markets were marked by turbulence.

France Moves towards Full Ban on Pesticides Blamed for Bee Losses

deadhoneybees_1By Organic Consumers Organization

French lawmakers approved plans for a total ban on some widely used pesticides blamed for harming bees, going beyond European Union restrictions in a fierce debate that has pitched farmers and chemical firms against beekeepers and green groups.

The EU limited the use of neonicotinoid chemicals, produced by companies including Bayer CropScience and Syngenta , two years ago after research pointed to risks for bees, which play a crucial role pollinating crops.

Crop chemical makers say the research blaming neonicotinoid pesticides is not backed up by field evidence and a global plunge in bee numbers in recent years is a complex phenomenon due to multiple factors.

The French outright ban on neonicotinoid pesticides was adopted by a narrow majority late on Thursday by France’s National Assembly as part of a draft bill on biodiversity that also contains an additional tax on palm oil.

Depopulation Test Run? 75% of children who received vaccines in Mexican town now dead or hospitalized

Mexico-Flag-Syringe-VaccineBy Mike Adams

Despite the insidious attempts of the corporate-controlled U.S. media to censor the stories about the deadly side effects of vaccines, the truth keeps surfacing. The latest vaccine tragedy to strike has killed two babies in La Pimienta, Mexico and sent 37 more to the hospital with serious reactions to toxic vaccine additives.

“…14 children are in serious condition, 22 are stable and one is in critical condition,” the Chiapas Health Secretariat said in a statement via Latino.FoxNews.com.

What’s especially alarming is that only 52 children were vaccinated in all, meaning that 75% of those receiving the vaccines are now either dead or hospitalized.

The vaccines were administered by the Mexican Social Security Institute, known as IMSS. The IMSS confirmed the deadly reactions occurred after children received injections of vaccines for tuberculosis, rotavirus and hepatitis B — the same viral strains targeted by vaccines routinely administered to children in the United States.

 

Loretta Lynch Admits That Climate Change Deniers May Be Targeted With Legal Action By The Government

hoaxHow desperate are the Left-wing authoritarians in the Obama administration getting to push their global warming/climate change hoax? Desperate enough, apparently, to consider prosecuting anyone who dares to question their climate change orthodoxy, even if they do so with facts on their side.

According to The Blaze, Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified before a congressional committee recently that yes, her ‘Justice’ Department has indeed “discussed” taking civil legal actions against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” that the “threat of carbon emissions” is real when it comes to climate change.

During her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., just happened to mention that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies proving the dangers of using tobacco (a familiar line of Left-wing attack, by the way) and fossil fuel companies denying studies that are alleged to show the treat of carbon emissions.

Sheldon went on to note that under President Bill Clinton, the Justice Department brought a civil case that it won against the tobacco industry, while so far the Obama administration has “done nothing” in regards to the fossil fuel industry.

Corporatists Mobilize To Prevent TPP Opposition

tppNo better example on how the actually world operates can be found than the Corporatist argument that all the opposition to TPP is just wrong. Really ??? Understand that the record of trade agreements have been greatly beneficial to Transnational Corporations. So it is natural that enterprises that seek to crush competition, favor the term FREE, when in reality the practice of conducting commerce on highly structured agreements, eliminates upstarts and squeeze out weak rivals. TPP has finally taken off the mask for all to see.

Still, the sway of the corporatocracy influence is so powerful that establishment economists, main stream business media, and election money dependent politicians are beating the drums in spite of the growing public opposition to the disastrous consequences in TPP.

Don’t celebrate that the argument has been won, QUARTZ publishes the corporate line that Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are both wrong about the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

“But there’s a difference between not supporting free trade and being against trade agreements. Trade agreements, such as TPP or the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), promote trade by eliminating tariffs and other barriers. But they also (as is the case of TPP) enforce patents, labor and environmental standards, copyrights, and other legal protections. Rather than unfettered globalization, trade agreements steer trade to certain countries and give participating governments more control on how trade is conducted. You can be against a trade agreement because you think there should be less trade (like Sanders and Donald Trump) or because you don’t like the structure of the agreement (which Hillary Clinton claims is her issue). But opposing TPP for either reason is a mistake.”

The author of this total falsehood is Allison Schrager an economist, writer, and pension geek. Her distortion of the facts is astounding. When did Donald Trump ever take the position that he wants less trade? In Breitbart Trump states: The 5,544-page deal is far too long to be understood, said Trump. “Nobody understands it,” he said. “The deal is so bad because of the fact they don’t cover currency manipulation,” Trump added. “It’s the number-one weapon used by foreign countries to hurt the United States and take away jobs.”

Schrager goes on with even more lunacy. “The structure of TPP may not be perfect, but it is expected to increase real incomes in America by $131 billion and boost exports by $357 billion by 2030. In absolute terms, the United States will benefit most from the deal.”

Folks, only a fool or an idiot would claim that the suicidal trade deficits that America has experienced, directly from ill conceived trade agreements like NAFTA is a benefit to our economy. And we are supposed to believe and take on faith that real incomes will increase BECAUSE of the TPP?

Since all four of the contending candidates for President are giving lip service against the TPP, the political pressure from an angry electorate is finally hitting home. However, the Corporatist will not abandon their fast track plan to drain even more wealth out of the pockets of hard working Americans. Hording their manipulated ill gains off shore does not put food on the table of your neighbor. Inversions do not employ more domestic workers. And since The U.S. Has the Highest Corporate Income Tax Rate in the OECD, it would be totally insane to give the globalist corporations even more advantages, when they already avoid the long reach of the IRS.

Lying politicians have done the bidding of their corporate donors for as long as companies have made contributions to campaigns. Congress could reduce the corporate tax and grant a tax holiday to repatriate all those stashed billions. Allowing Citizens United to be the law of the land, guarantees control of the corporatist over trade policy.

Trade should not be an ideological issue. The merits of any agreement should be judged on how AMERICA and her people benefit, not on how much gain corporations command from the arrangements. Trump states he wants to negotiate trade deals with individual countries as opposed to all inclusive and putative global dictates.

This approach can and will stop the adverse trade hemorrhage that is destroying our future. Needless to say, a mouth piece for Marco Rubio, Scott Lincicome an international trade attorney, adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute and Visiting Lecturer at Duke University, disagrees. In Almost Everything Donald Trump Says About Trade With China Is Wrong, he contends:

“Moreover, basic economics teaches us that trade balances reflect national savings, consumption and investment, not trade policy. Thus, every dollar traveling overseas to buy imports (in excess of our exports) eventually comes back to the United States in the form of investment, and our “trade deficit” is matched by a “capital account surplus.” In other words, we buy goods and services from foreigners, and they buy an equal amount of our exports plus our financial assets (aka foreign investment in the United States).”

In this last statement, the ugly game plan of the internationalist rigged trade agreements is revealed. Transfer of domestic wealth and national treasure to the globalist companies who buy up America on the cheap. Just what this nation needs! Shills like Lincicome are certainly not nationalists.

When fronts for the supra-elites, ratchet up their attacks on Trump, they are really looking to stop the opposition against the TPP. The Club for Growth to launch million-dollar attack on Trump is a typical example of this tactic.

Get prepared for many more reposts like this. The Corporatists mobilization to prevent any opposition to the TPP is behind the establishment of any populist politician. Wake up America and know your trade enemy, they wrote the TPP.

GWEN TOWERS : Earthquake Machines – Zombie Makers “They Can Blow Up Your Mind!”

gwen towerWe were reviewing an old Weather Control Video when we noticed at the 8:45 mark, a Picture of the 1st Commercial Earthquake Machine. It looked just like a GWEN Tower [Ground Wave Emergency Network], except shorter.

Then I recalled seeing 2 large GWEN Towers only 100 feet apart at the MD./VA. Line near a bridge that crosses the Potomac River. I had also noticed another GWEN Tower, right next to a bridge that crossed over the D.C. Beltway near the same VA./MD. Line. And while I was driving down U.S. Route 70 between Baltimore and Frederick MD., I noticed that 3 out of 4 Bridges that crossed over U.S. Route 70, had large Gwen Towers within a 1/4 mile of the bridges.

If GWEN Towers are indeed, small self-contained Earthquake Machines, not only can Earthquakes be started anywhere in America at any time, but they can also bring down Bridges at a moments notice and shut down the entire U.S. Highway System to Civilian Traffic. This would in effect, stop the citizens from one city or county from helping other citizens from other cities or counties, or States for that matter. It appears to be a way of isolating citizens from each other.

GWEN stands for Ground Wave Emergency Network. The key words being GROUND WAVE, EMERGENCY, and NETWORK. They are everywhere.

mindcontrol2

And that’s not all. The Russians have what they and others call a Zombie Gun. It’s Microwave and Modern Extra Low Frequency (ELF) Weapons. If the Russians have it, so do we…on Steroids. It’s the GWEN Towers other function.

The ELF Waves can disrupt the higher functions of Human Brain activity. Making it so that the average person, can’t think straight. Can’t do even or only the most basic of tasks. They will in effect, become like zombies.

The Ground-Wave Emergency Network (GWEN) is a communications system that the military is in the process of constructing as we speak. It operates in the very-low-frequency (VLF) range, with transmissions between 150 and 175 kHz. This range was selected because its signals travel by means of waves that have a tendency to hug the ground rather than by radiating into the atmosphere. This signal drops off sharply with distance – a single GWEN stations transmits in a 360 circle to a distance of 250 to 300 miles. The entire GWEN system consists of approximately 300 such stations spread across the United States, each with a tower 300-500 feet high. The stations are from 200 to 250 miles apart, so that a signal can go from coast to coast from one station to another. When the system is completed around 1993, the entire civilian population of the United States will be exposed to the GWEN Transmissions. Read Appendix 4 and then re-read this section.

APPLICATION OF MILITARY FREQUENCY WEAPONRY

According to a 1982 Air Force review of biotechnology, ELF has a number of potential military uses, including “dealing with terrorist groups, crowd control, controlling breaches of security at military installations, and antipersonnel techniques in tactical warfare.” The same report states: “Electromagnetic systems would be used to produce mild to severe physiological disruption or perceptual dis- tortion or disorientation. They are silent, and counter- measures to them may be difficult to develop.”

GWEN TOWERS! How to Switch-On and Switch-Off a Pandemic

There has been a tremendous focus on the swine-flu epidemic, which certainly started out looking like it could turn into the long-awaited (and PROMISED) deadly pandemic. People were in a state of panic and behind it all the military was ready to be mobilized to handle the crisis. Never mind that according to the Center for Disease Control website: “CDC scientists estimate that an average of 36,000 people …..die from influenza-related complications each year in the United States” and at the point of panic at MOST there were less than a couple of hundred deaths attributable to the new killer. Somehow, they just KNEW this was the “big one”.

Lets’ just start with the Center for Disease Control (CDC), from whence it was reported samples of the swine-flu were being shipped around the World—and let’s focus on the word “Control”. In order to control a process, one must have the ability to START it, to CHANGE it and to STOP it; that is the definition of control.

What few people know (because they have not studied the information in the Phoenix Journals provided for the remnant) is that disease propagation by FREQUENCY allows the elite controllers to imply “pull the trigger” on a pandemic any time they want.
Up front, let us acknowledge the GOOD NEWS, that the opposite is also true: Just as easily as a virus can be activated by frequency, it can be STOPPED by the same technique.

Former Nixon Aide Admits War On Drugs Was A Big Lie; Was Never About Drugs

nixon-drugsBy Brandon Turbeville

In an interview conducted by Harper’s Dan Baum nearly 22 years ago, former Nixon domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman admitted what many have known ever since the beginning – that the Nixon administrations’ War On Drugs was a giant lie.

To clarify, it was not Nixon’s police state that was a lie. That was very real. It was the justification used for the war, the fearmongering, and the panic-inducing hype produced by the White House that was a monumental obfuscation.

Ehrlichman doesn’t mince words when he discusses the War On Drugs and it is not inference suggesting that the justification given for the War on Drugs was a lie. In fact, Ehrlichman even states that the policy was in order to attack political rivals and alleged “threats” to the Nixon administration like “blacks and hippies.”

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people,” Ehrlichman said.

“You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities,” Ehrlichman said. “We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

As Tom LoBianco writes for CNN, “It’s a stark departure from Nixon’s public explanation for his first piece of legislation in the war on drugs, delivered in message to Congress in July 1969, which framed it as a response to an increase in heroin addiction and the rising use of marijuana and hallucinogens by students.”

Of course, the War On Drugs and the ensuing police and incarceration states that followed had a much larger purpose than merely helping Nixon fight back against potential political threats. Indeed, most drugs were already illegal by Nixon’s election.

Hiding and preventing the knowledge of positive effects of some substances, shredding Constitutional and human rights, creating a culture of incarceration, and implementing a gradual but eventually total police state were most certainly part of the plan as well, which history has demonstrated. For instance, Reagan and especially Clinton were under no threat from the populations mentioned by Ehrlichman but they nevertheless sent the drug war and the natural results of it listed above into overdrive.

Nevertheless, after setting the United States further down the path of totalitarianism, we at least appreciate Ehrlichman’s honesty even if it is decades later. Perhaps now, we can begin dismantling the drug war.
