Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods To Autoimmune Disease

And who knows exactly how many types of cancer, and yet the wheels of deceit, keep on spinning, without hope in sight!

The modern diet of processed foods, takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, including alopecia, asthma and eczema.

A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame.

‘This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases,’ they said.

Junk foods at fast food restaurants as well as processed foods at grocery retailers represent the largest sources of sodium intake from refined salts.

The Canadian Medical Association Journal sent out an international team of researchers to compare the salt content of 2,124 items from fast food establishments such as Burger King, Domino’s Pizza, Kentucky Fried…

Leonard Cohen – Bird on the wire, Pop-Rock (Munich 1979): This is soul search time my friends, It’s time to understand the song of the bird!

The most beautiful interpretation of “Like The Bird On The Wire“, ever. Perla flies like a dove above all, off a wire up in the skies, and dive on the winds of the accordeon, so divinely played. Perla Batalla is the priestess of freedom and joy of life everlasting in this magnificent scene: Sweet like nectar, and the salt of the Earth. If Leonard is the man, Perla is the woman, the lover, enchanter, charmer, the voice. Do you see that too, or is it only me?

Songwriters: COHEN, LEONARD
Like a bird on the wire, 
Like a drunk in a midnight choir 
I have tried in my way to be free. 
Like a worm on a hook, 
Like a knight from some old fashioned book 
I have saved all my ribbons for thee. 
If I, if I have been unkind, 
I hope that you can just let it go by. 
If I, if I have been untrue 
I hope you know it was never to you. Like a baby, stillborn, 
Like a beast with his horn 
I have torn everyone who reached out for me. 
But I swear by this song 
And by all that I have done wrong 
I will make it all up to thee. 
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch, 
He said to me, “You must not ask for so much.” 
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door, 
She cried to me, “Hey, why not ask for more?” Oh like a bird on the wire, 
Like a drunk in a midnight choir 
I have tried in my way to be free.

Rand Paul Ends Historic Filibuster After Nearly 13 Hours. But He Finally Gets The Elusive Answer From Eric Holder

Family Survival Protocol - Microcosm News

Grace Wyler and Brett LoGiurato | Mar. 6, 2013, 11:46 PM

Senator Rand Paul took over the Senate floor for nearly 13 hours Wednesday with an old-fashioned talk-till-you-drop filibuster, railing against the Obama administration’s drone policy and holding up a vote on John Brennan’s confirmation as CIA director.

“I will speak until I can no longer speak,” Paul began at 11:47 a.m. Wednesday.

He didn’t end until 12:39 a.m. Thursday, when he closed his marathon speech to thunderous applause.

“I would go for another 12 hours to try to break Strom Thurmond’s record, but I’ve discovered that there are some limits to filibustering and I’m going to have to go take care of one of those in a few minutes here,” Paul quipped.

Although Paul’s filibuster was technically against Brennan’s nomination, his remarks focused primarily on civil liberties issues, offering a scathing critique of the Obama’s administration’s use of unmanned drones…

WASHINGTON — Airline passengers will be able to carry small knives, souvenir baseball bats, golf clubs and other sports equipment onto planes beginning next month under a policy change announced Tuesday by the head of the Transportation Security Administration.

The new policy conforms U.S. security standards to international standards, and allows TSA to concentrate its energies on more serious safety threats, the agency said in a statement.

The announcement, made by TSA Administrator John Pistole at an airline industry gathering in New York, drew an immediate outcry from unions representing flight attendants and other airline workers, who said the items are still dangerous in the hands of the wrong passengers.

Transport Workers Union Local 556, which represents over 10,000 flight attendants at Southwest Airlines, called…

Locust swarm hits Israel as a million insects cross border from Egypt

By Alex Ward and Steve Nolan

PUBLISHED: 04:05 EST, 6 March 2013 | UPDATED: 09:03 EST, 6 March 2013

A swarm of locusts has crossed the border from Egypt into neighbouring Israel, raising fears that the country could be plagued by the insects over the forthcoming Passover holiday.

A swarm of an estimated 30 million insects had been devastating crops in Egypt putting authorities in Israel on high alert.

But a smaller swarm of some one million locusts has now hit Israel.

The Economics of World Government

Hans-Hermann Hoppe

ANNOUNCER: This is the Lew Rockwell Show.

ROCKWELL: Recently, at the 2009 Mises University, Professor Hans-Hermann Hoppe talked about the economics of political centralization. What is it that brings about unification, unfortunate unification and centralization within a country like the United States where the states gradually become irrelevant under an all-powerful D.C., and, for that matter, drives countries to join together into an even worse situation, of course, a world government?

Here’s Dr. Hoppe.

HOPPE: OK, I will begin my lecture.

At the beginning, I want to repeat a few points that I have made in my previous lecture on law and economics, and then I want to get to an entirely different subject than…

Homeless In NYC

And they think people would rather die of hunger, than work? That’s crazy, antisocial, cruel and inhuman!


New York City Leads Jump in Homeless




” More than 21,000 children—an unprecedented 1% of the city’s youth—slept each night in a city shelter in January, an increase of 22% in the past year, the report said, while homeless families now spend more than a year in a shelter, on average, for the first time since 1987. In January, an average of 11,984 homeless families slept in shelters each night, a rise of 18% from a year earlier

“New York is facing a homeless crisis worse than any time since the Great Depression,” said Mary Brosnahan, president of the Coalition for the Homeless.”

Report: Most of the $60 Billion In Iraqi Aid Wasted

Q: Wasted, or swindled?


170px-Bush_and_al-Maliki220px-Barack_Obama_&_Jalal_Talabani_in_Baghdad_4-7-09In the last few weeks, the Administration has been pushing hard to show how sequestration has produced dire consequences even though it involved only $85 billion (including the implausible claim that thousands of illegal aliens had to be released due to the cuts). For some of us who have complained about the Administration giving billions to Israel and other countries, it was a hard sell even if you do not agree with sequestration. Now a report has come out showing, as has been discussed for years on this blog and other sites, most of the $60 billion given to Iraq in the last ten years was wasted or lost to open corruption. The long documented waste of billions did not cause either the Bush or Obama Administration (or Congress) to take meaningful steps to stop the funding or, better yet, pull out of the country.

Anna Magnani (1908)

An illegitimate child abandoned by her parents and raised by her grandparents in a Roman slum, Magnani overcame incredible odds to become an internationally acclaimed, Academy Award-winning actress. She began her performing career singing bawdy street songs in the nightclubs of Rome, but before long she was starring on the stage and screen, earning recognition for her dynamic and forceful portrayals of earthy, lower-class women. A believer in the supernatural, Magnani claimed to have what power? More… Discuss


British Parliament Votes in Favor of All-Elected House of Lords (2007)

In the UK, Parliament consists, technically, of the monarch, the House of Commons, and the House of Lords. The great power of the House of Commons lies, historically, in its control of government finances. However, the powers of the House of Lords have been negligible since 1911, when an act stripped the House of Lords of its veto power on money bills and on other bills under some circumstances. The vote in 2007 for an all-elected House of Lords came after several votes on what other options? More… Discuss


PROPOSAL TO BAN DRUNKENNESS AT UN BUDGET DEBATES ( I Hope this matter will be remembered 20,000 years from now, as a vacuum of decency!)

Proposal to Ban Drunkenness at UN Budget Debates

One would think it goes without saying that the people determining the budget of the world’s leading international diplomatic organization should be sober when doing so, but apparently, it does not. Diplomats who have participated in the UN’s budget debate sessions say that it is not uncommon to see delegates who are visibly drunk. It is apparently such a significant problem that a US ambassador to the UN has proposed making the negotiating rooms inebriation-free zones. More… Discuss



The Kit-Cat Club

The Kit-Cat Club was an association of some of the best young writers and most prominent Whig politicians in early 18th-century London. Among the roughly four dozen members were figures such as Sir Robert Walpole, William Congreve, and Joseph Addison, in addition to a number of dukes. They first met in the tavern of Christopher Catling, whose mutton pies were called kit-cats. In its time, the club was well known for drinking toasts to notable women of the day.

Anna Kondratenko: Solo-recital on 16.11.2011

NEW YORK, October 24, 2008 – In advance of the Shanghai Quartet‘s two performances at the Asia Society, Weigang Li, the quartet’s first violinist, granted an exclusive on-camera interview to the Asia Society’s La Frances Hui about politics and music—specifically, about his own memories of growing up during the Cultural Revolution and the quartet’s recording of an entire CD, Chinasong (2002), evocative of that period.
Li’s recollections encompass both a teenage Red Guard appearing at his family’s house and demanding to see his father’s diaries and the rash of suicides that swept over the local music faculty during the Revolutionary years. Nonetheless he acknowledged the peculiar nostalgia many Chinese feel for music associated with that era, which was one reason behind the quartet’s decision to record Chinasong.
