Germany to Begin Mandatory Vaccinations, Fines Of Up To $2,800*

Germany to Begin Mandatory Vaccinations, Fines Of Up To $2,800*

By Claire Bernish

Fines of up to €2,500 ($2,800) could await parents in Germany who fail to vaccinate their children, as panic and an ongoing outbreak of measles spread like wildfire across the nation.

Last week, a 37-year-old mother of three succumbed to the highly-contagious illness in North Rhine-Westphalia — and that troubling portent has officials rushing to quash the epidemic by requiring kindergartens to inform health authorities if parents do not receive vaccination counseling.

Noncompliance could find children expelled.

“Nobody can be indifferent to the fact that people are still dying of measles,” asserted Germany’s Health Minister Hermann Gröhe, reports Bild, adding the tightening of laws surrounding inoculations will be imperative, due to the widespread outbreak.

In March, the BBC reported “measles had become endemic (meaning that it is self-sustaining, continuing to spread within the country) in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Switzerland and Ukraine,” as Forbes paraphrased. “The worst measles outbreak is in Romania, which reported over 3,400 cases and 17 deaths in just the first 3 months of this year.”

By the middle of April, Germany had 504 reported cases of measles in 2017 — up from just 33 in the same time period the previous year, and already in excess of the 326 cases reported for the whole of 2016.

German authorities already have the legal means to fine parents who choose not to vaccinate their children — but reporting those parents had been left to the discretion of schools.

Notes the BBC, the “upper house of the German parliament, the Bundesrat, said forcing kindergartens to report some parents to the health authorities might breach data protection laws.”

European officials appeared to lay blame for the insidious epidemic squarely at the feet of the vaccine awareness and anti-vaxx movements, following the worst measles outbreak in two decades in 2015.

Italy, however — which has thus far experienced a threefold increase in reported cases, compared with last year — took requirements about inoculation a step further than Germany.

Last week, Italian politicians mandated vaccination against 12 common infectious diseases — measles, polio, whooping cough, meningitis, and hepatitis B, among them — for youngsters through age six before they would be permitted to enroll in State-operated schools.

Italian officials excoriated what they termed “anti-scientific” theories on vaccination, such as a possible but as-yet unproven link to autism, for a decline in children receiving measles and other shots — a sufficient gap as to be conducive to an outbreak of this magnitude.

While authorities from a number of European nations lambasted parents for putative negligence in failing to vaccinate kids against measles; but, as the BBC reports, the World Health Organization noted only around 5,000 cases across the continent in 2016 — the lowest total ever recorded.

Italy and Romania are experiencing the brunt of the measles epidemic this year, according to WHO.


Vaccines have come under fire in recent years in the United States, as the list of inoculations recommended for children grows lengthier by the year.

Parents opting not to follow the vaccine schedule cite a number of reasons, including a highly disputatious theory the shots might cause iterations of autism spectrum disorder, as well as the basic premise interactions between the disparate inoculations have not been fully examined.

As the vaccine debate — deemed an exercise in recklessness, by both sides — continues to heat up, governments seem increasingly prone to wresting that decision from parents, and taking up the cause for what they say is the good of the public’s health.

German parliament will likely adopt the measure on June 1.

U.S. Supreme Court Maintaining the Christian Manifest Destiny/Doctrine of Discovery*

To this day Native nations such as the Cupeños are still forced to operate within the constraints of Christian-premised ideas and arguments

By Steven Newcomb

In 1901, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling in Barker v. Harvey, a case involving Cupeño people in Southern California. They were resisting eviction from the “Aqua Caliente Hot Springs” in the Warner Ranch area. To defend themselves, the Cupeño people claimed a right of “permanent occupancy” on the land. The Supreme Court rejected that argument, saying that if the Indians had had any claims founded on some previous action by the Mexican government the Cupeños had abandoned those claims by not presenting them to the 1851 federal land commission for consideration.

Because the Cupeños had not filed a claim with that land commission, the Court said they could not successfully resist “any action of the government in disposing of the property.” Never mind that the Cupeño people had probably never been informed about a need to bring their own claims before the 1851 land claims commission. And never mind that U.S. treaty commissioners were creating draft treaty documents with Native leaders in California during that same 1851-52 period, albeit treaties which were never ratified. So which was the “correct” course of action for the Native people to take? Treaty talks, or the claims commission process? It they were supposed to follow both processes, then why didn’t the U.S. government let the Native people know that at the time?

The Court acknowledged that the Cupeño Indians might only be claiming “the right of occupation,” and not fee title to the land. The Court said it could also be argued that the Native people were not claiming lands in California on the basis of “any right or title derived from the Spanish or Mexican government.” Nonetheless, the Court cautioned that the Cupeños argument of “permanent occupancy” on the land could have a “far reaching effect.”

The Court said that if the “Aqua Caliente Hot Springs” lands were “burdened” with an Indian right of “permanent occupancy” that this would definitely prevent the United States from declaring those lands to be “part of the public domain” and “subject to the full disposal” by the United States government. The Court discussed the difference between a scenario in which the Cupeños were deemed to have a “temporary occupancy” and a scenario in which they were deemed to have “a right of permanent occupancy.” (emphasis added)

The Supreme Court said that a designation of “permanent occupancy” for the Cupeños would amount to a right of “private property” for the Cupeños, meaning, a form of property that would precede the title of the United States government, and be superior to the U.S. title. If the Cupeño people were recognized as possessing a permanent occupancy right on the land, the Court stated, this would “necessarily limit the power of the United States to dispose of or grant the soil to parties of its own choosing.” Obviously, this was a major concern for the Court.

The Court further stated that a claimant going before the land commission of 1851 would have little reason to present his claim to land to the commission in an effort to secure that claim, “if the only result was to transfer the naked fee to him, burdened by an Indian right of permanent occupancy.”

By rejecting the Cupeño’s claim of “permanent occupancy,” the Court was upholding the theory that the Cupeños only had a “temporary occupancy,” meaning transient, or short lived. The Barker Court’s use of the word “temporary” corresponds to something Joseph Story said in his Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States (1836) when he said of the Native people, “The territory, over which they wandered, and which they used for their temporary and fugitive purposes, was, in respect to Christians, deemed, as if it were inhabited only by brute animals.” (emphasis added)

In Byrne v. Alas (1888), the California Supreme Court quoted the Jones report on the title of the Indians pursuant to the systems of Spain and Mexico. That report said that the Spanish crown did not recognize any right of soil in “the wild and wandering tribes.” A lack of mental recognition by the Spanish crown resulted in no right or title for the original nations that the United States was obligated to acknowledge or respect. Stated differently, only in the event that the Spanish crown and Mexican government had mentally recognized the original Indian nations as having a fundamental right of soil would the United States be obligated as the successor to the Spanish Crown and the Mexican government to recognize the Indian nations as having a right of soil.

There is a form of reasoning behind the idea of a right of “temporary occupancy” for the Indian people. Once the United States had declared itself to have militarily and politically taken over the geographical area called “California” by means of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, and once the “state of California” had been declared into existence and admitted into the Union of other states, the United States federal government and the state of California considered themselves only obligated to do what the governments of Spain and Mexico had done before them. In 1885, attorney Frederick Hall published his book The Laws of Mexico, based his research in the archives of Mexico in Mexico City. Section 1 of his book begins:

  1. Grant by the Pope.—For the purposes of overthrowing heathenism, and advancing the Roman Catholic religion, Alexander sixth issued a bull in 1493, granting to the crown of Castile the whole of the vast domain then discovered, or to be discovered, between the north and south poles, or so much thereof as was not considered in the possession of any Christian power.

According to the rules of Christendom, lands regarded by Spain to be in possession of some “Christian power” deserved to be accorded a formal governmental recognition. Lands in the possession of non-Christian nations, such as, for example, the Cupeño, did not have to be accorded any recognition whatsoever according to Christendom’s rules. Lands that were, “in respect to Christians” “inhabited only by brute animals” (to use Justice Joseph Story’s wording), were not considered to be possessed by any form of power in relation to land and water which the Christian world was obligated to recognize. Christian nations did not obligate themselves to recognize non-Christian nations.

Non-Christian lands were considered void of Christian dominion (a property right of domination), and therefore “open” to the establishment of Christian dominion (domination) that was destined by the Christian “God.” The non-Christians, said Joseph Story, were “destined to yield to the superior genius of Europe” (emphasis added), an idea which Chief Justice John Marshall also expressed in the 1823 Supreme Court ruling Johnson v. M’Intosh. And to this day Native nations such as the Cupeños and others are still, on that religious basis, forced to operate within the constraints of those Christian-premised ideas and arguments in California and elsewhere.

Trump Administration Launches tough new Social Media Vetting for U.S. Visa Applicants*

Trump Administration Launches tough new Social Media Vetting for U.S. Visa Applicants*

By Matthew Hughes

For the majority of people who visit the United States, applying for a visa is a routine task of filling in the boxes. But for those applicants who have been flagged for further review, it’s going to get a lot more difficult.

The Trump administration just rolled out a tough new visa questionnaire which, among other things, asks applicants for their social media information, as well as every email address they’ve had for the past five years.

The questionnaire, Form DS-5535, was approved after two weeks of public comment, and will be presented to the 0.5% of travelers selected for further scrutiny.

Officials will request the additional information when they believe “that such information is required to confirm identity or conduct more rigorous national security vetting,” a State Department official told Reuters on Wednesday.

Form DS-5535 asks for the following information:

  • Every social media handle used during the past five years.
  • Phone numbers and email addresses used over the past five years
  • Fifteen years of travel history, with detail on the source of funding for the travel.
  • Fifteen years of address history
  • Fifteen years of employment history
  • Details on all passport numbers held, along with country of issuance
  • Names and dates of birth for all siblings
  • Names and dates of birth for all children
  • Names and dates of births of all current and former spouses, civil, or domestic partners.

The form is already circulating through official channels, and can be downloaded from the website of the US Embassy and Consulate in Turkey. It notes that it expires on November 30, 2017, and should take about an hour to complete.

While the form is voluntary, those who fail to complete it are likely to experience delays with their visa application, or have it denied entirely.

Proponents of the changes argue that it is a necessary step in order to protect Americans, others argue that it will trip up innocent travelers, who will struggle to remember every single login they’ve created, and every single international trip they’ve taken.

Asking for more information will also inevitably increase the administrative overhead, and will likely result in increased delays to visa applications.

Severe Water Crisis in Cape Town Caused by Worst Drought in over a Century*

Severe Water Crisis in Cape Town Caused by Worst Drought in over a Century*

Cape Town, South Africa’s seat of Parliament and the legislative capital, is enduring its worst drought in over a century and severe water crisis. This forced officials to impose strict Level 4 water restrictions, effective as of Thursday, June 1, 2017. While the measures will have short-term effects, some experts warn them alone will not solve the problem.

Cape Town is using 5 dams to collect its drinking water, and as of May 29 those dams, collectively, are at 19.7%. This is 0.8% down since last week. However, since the last 10% of that water is not usable, Cape Town’s 4 million residents have only 9.7% of usable water left, less than 60 days of normal consumption.

City officials have therefore approved Level 4 water restrictions, limiting residents to only 100 litres (26 gallons) of water per person per day. The measure also bans all use of municipal water for outside and non-essential use.

Several factors are to blame for Cape Town’s stressed water supply, including a growing population, ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) and a rapidly changing climate, according to the CNN meteorologists.

A long-term drying trend (also known as desertification) is evident in the decreasing levels of Cape Town’s parched reservoirs, which are intended to supply the city’s water. Winter cold fronts driven by strong westerly winds typically bring replenishing rains to Cape Town. But these rainfalls have become less and less frequent as an expansive area of high pressure in the Atlantic Ocean still dominates the weather in the region, acting as a barrier to wet weather systems.

University of Cape Town climate scientist Peter Johnston said officials are faced with a long-term problem. “What we’ve had now is three seasons in a row where the rainfall has been low, and that’s a one-in-a-hundred-year occurrence,” Johnston told AFP.

Although strong summer rains have seen much of southern Africa recover from drought, Cape Town receives most of its rain in the southern hemisphere’s winter – and scientists warn there is no guarantee of a good rainy season ahead.

What’s especially troubling is that even if the city gets a real wet winter this season, the dam levels would only go up by about 40 to 50% and this time next year, the city would be in the same problem. Experts say Cape Town needs at least 3 wet winters to replenish its water supplies, so city officials are forced to think about other solutions.

One of them involves recycling waste water and drilling into aquifers under the nearby Table Mountain landmark. This would only solve a part of the problem so the city is also trying to accelerate plans to build two desalination plants, a move already adopted by some of the driest towns in the region.

Past weather patterns suggest the drought will eventually end. And when it does, it will be a deluge.

A massive sandstorm swept through the Sudanese capital Khartoum on June 1, 2017, turning day into night and burying several homes.

The storm has brought vast amounts of sand and dust into the city, burying several homes and severely limiting visibility, CGTN reported.

“Ecosystems and natural resources in the country have been deteriorating due to climate change. Water supplies are scarce and severe droughts are common. After years of desertification, the country’s rich biodiversity is under threat and drought has hindered the fight against hunger,” the paper said.

Iraqi Army Temporarily Bans Burqa, Niqab to Protect Civilians in Mosul*

The Iraqi army has imposed a temporary ban on wearing Islamic veils, which cover the face, such as the burqa and niqab in newly liberated areas of Mosul, local media reports.

The new security measure has been implemented in order to improve security during the month of Ramadhan as coalition forces battle to retake the last neighbourhoods from militants.

Ramadhan is a holy month for Muslims during which they fast from sunrise to sunset. The month is dedicated to prayer and abstinence from worldly pleasures.

Unfortunately, this month did not stop terrorists from carrying out attacks on civilians.

Hence, the authorities in Mosul are taking all sorts of measures to protect people from jihadists.

A statement from the local police said that both the burqa and niqab would temporarily be banned so that Daesh militants could not disguise themselves as women in public places and carry out attacks.

The order came into effect on the first full day of Ramadhan. Using motorcycles, which have been used in the past to carry out terrorist attacks, has also been banned for the duration of the month.

The Iraqi operation to recapture Mosul, the key stronghold of Daesh in Iraq, began in October 2016 and resulted in the liberation of Mosul’s eastern part this January.

Fighting continues in the city’s west, with Iraqi forces closing in on the Old City.

The Birth Control Pills–Depression Link Big Pharma Does Not Want You To Know*

The Birth Control Pills–Depression Link Big Pharma Does Not Want You To Know*

Although men are fertile every day, the medical community consensus is that the onus of contraception falls on women, albeit they are only fertile for 6 days of the month. And as for one medical professional, an unwanted pregnancy “far outweighs” all other birth control side effects.

A study published in September last year examined the correlation between the use of hormonal birth control and depression.

According to the study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, which tracked over one million women using hormonal birth control for 13 years, those prescribed birth control – either the pill, hormonal IUD or vaginal ring – significantly increased their chances of being prescribed antidepressants.

The nationwide study found that of the million women living in Denmark who participated in the study, an increased risk of first use antidepressants and first diagnosed depression rated highest among adolescents.

It also outlined the importance of health care professionals informing their patients of the likely adverse side effects, including mood disturbances.

In an op-ed published in The Guardian late last year by Holly Grigg-Spall, the Danish findings are discussed. In pure figures, researchers discovered a 23% increase in those taking the combined oral contraceptive to develop depression. Those using the “mini-pill” saw a 34% increase. The hormonal IUS/coil, the patch and the ring showed an even larger increase in links to depression.

Those with pre-existing symptoms of depression experience worsening symptoms if they use the alternative LARCs (the long-acting reversible contraceptives), mainly prescribed to teens.


(The Business of Being Born by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein on Vimeo received its funds and is now a successful documentary series.)

According to one study published in NCBI, over 100 million women use oral contraceptives and mood changes are the main reason for discontinuing their use.

But according to Grigg-Spall, the appalling gatherings of medical ‘professionals’ that lined up to discredit the study only highlighted the position of woman in society.

In sharp contrast, the WHO documented through a large-scale study that men didn’t accept the male pill as viable because of the impact on their emotional wellbeing, highlighting the existing double-standard underscored by sexism.

Although men are fertile every day, the medical community consensus is that the onus of contraception falls on women, albeit they are only fertile for 6 days of the month. And as for one medical professional, an unwanted pregnancy “far outweighs” all other birth control side effects.

What is more devastating is these side effects have been known since the introduction of birth control pills for women, over 50 years ago. Pioneered by activist Margaret Sanger, biologist Gregory Pincus, Catholic physician and gynecologist John Rock, and self-funded by millionaire heiress Katherine McCormick, the development of the drug has a dark history.

Often, test subjects were given the pill without being told that it would stop pregnancy. When Americans by the dozens dropped out of the initial small studies – mainly to mood changes –  the group took their studies to unsuspecting Puerto Rican women. Again, however, women dropped out from the study due to the pill’s side effects.

It was then that women were forced to participate; those in mental asylums were enrolled in the program and female medical students in San Juan were told to take the pills, undergo invasive medical exams or face expulsion from college.

The potential side effects on mental health have been covered up since the pill’s initial development. Although they are surfacing now, they are still largely ignored. Unfortunately, in this largely sexist, one-sided debate, it is up to the woman to now educate herself and seize back her power.

Global Warming Melts Arctic Permafrost, Floods World’s ‘Doomsday’ Seed Vault*

The Vault stores and protects millions of precious seeds from more than 930,000 seed samples of essential food crops from all over the world to ensure humanity’s food supply in case of changing climate, natural disasters, and human conflicts.

The Global Seed Vault, buried deep inside an icy mountain on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, above the Arctic Circle, stores and protects millions of precious seeds from more than 930,000 seed samples of essential food crops (such as beans, wheat and rice). The seeds are sourced from across the world to ensure humanity’s food supply in case of changing climate, natural disasters, and human conflicts.

Located in the remote Arctic Svalbard archipelago, about 1,300 km from the North Pole, the Vault is described as “a fail-safe seed storage facility, built to stand the test of time — and the challenge of natural or man-made disasters.” It can store up to 4.5 million seed samples for hundreds of years. Since each sample contains an average count of 500 seeds, a maximum of 2.25 billion seeds can be stored in the facility.

But the world’s largest secure seed storage has been breached. Global warming resulted in soaring temperatures in the Arctic at the end of the world’s hottest ever recorded year (average temperatures of over 7 degrees Celsius above normal).

On May 19, the ensuing permafrost melting and heavy rain caused melt water to leak approximately 15 metres into the entrance of a 100-meter tunnel inside the Vault. Deimos Imaging, a Spanish company that provides imagery services for agriculture, forestry, and monitoring applications, released pictures of the damage to the ‘Doomsday’ seed Vault, as captured by its Deimos-2 satellite.

The Norwegian government confirmed the breach. Hege Njaa Aschim, a Norwegian government spokeswoman, told The Guardian:

It was not in our plans to think that the permafrost would not be there and that it would experience extreme weather like thatA lot of water went into the start of the tunnel and then it froze to ice, so it was like a glacier when you went in. It was supposed to operate without the help of humans, but now we are watching the seed vault 24 hours a day. We must see what we can do to minimize all the risks and make sure the seed bank can take care of itself. The question is whether this is just happening now, or will it escalate?”

Although the seeds remained safe inside the Vault at the required storage temperature of –18 degrees Celsius, the breach has questioned the ability of the vault to protect the world’s crops from calamities.

Therefore, the Vault’s managers are now constructing a 100m-long waterproof tunnel into the mountain and digging trenches into the mountainside to channel melt water away, Aschim told AFP.

All heat sources from the tunnel will also be removed from inside the Vault for additional protection while pumps will be installed in the Vault itself in case of a future flood, she added:

“It’s not good to have unnecessary heat inside if water is coming in and permafrost is melting. We have to listen to ‘climate experts‘ and we are prepared to do anything to protect the seed vault. The water that leaked in had turned into ice, but we had it removed. Norwegian authorities are taking this very seriously and following it continuously. We have to find solutions. It is a big responsibility and we take it very seriously. We are doing this for the world.”

Even as the Norwegian government detailed the plans to boost the Vault’s defences following the breach, Cary Fowler, former executive director of the Crop Trust — the firm that helped create the vault — took to Twitter to clarify there had been no ‘flooding’ at the facility and that the incident is being overplayed:

@RyanMaue It didn’t flood. Some water enters tunnel just inside beyond building you see yearly and is pumped out. Nothing new. Seeds at opposite end.

— Cary Fowler (@CaryFowler_) May 20, 2017

Seed Vault is fine. Seeds undamaged. No flood as widely but incorrectly reported. Take it from me.
