Tribes Unite Across U.S. and Canada to Oppose Keystone XL in Declaration*

Tribes Unite Across U.S. and Canada to Oppose Keystone XL in Declaration*

It is intended as a message to President Donald Trump and may be sent to the United Nations.

Today (May 17), tribal leaders are gathering in Calgary, Alberta to sign a 16-page declaration against the Keystone XL Pipeline.

From the United States are the Great Sioux Nation and Ponca tribes and from Canada, the Blackfoot Confederacy. They will sign the “Declaration Opposing Oil Sand Expansion and the Construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline” as a message to President Donald Trump, reports Native News Online.

“There is a historic union between first Americans in Canada and Native Americans in the United States,” said Casey Camp-Horinek, a councilwoman with the Ponca tribe in Oklahoma, to The Associated Press.

“Long before a border ever existed on a map, a fictitious line on a map, we were a united peoples in our approach to care of Mother Earth.”

Pipeline opponents seemingly won the battle against the 1,179 mile-long pipeline in 2015 when former President Barack Obama rejected developer TransCanada’s permit application. However, Trump entered the White House January 20 and signed a presidential memorandum to repeal that just four days later.

With this declaration, indigenous people across North America want Trump to know why this pipeline is destructive to their culture, safety and history. The preamble reads, per Native News:

“We, The First People, were and remain the stewards of the land and with this Declaration renew our vow to carry that sacred obligation in defense of our Mother, the Earth, and all born of her body and nurtured at her breast who are no longer heard amidst the dissonance of industrialization and corporate domination.”

One of the declaration’s strongest demands revolves around treaty rights. Tribal leaders want consultation processes to change and require consent. Currently, companies such as TransCanada may include a Native American Relations Policy or Aboriginal Relations Policy (both of which TransCanada has), but a tribe’s rejection doesn’t factor in significantly. Tribal members might send this declaration to the United Nations, the AP reports.

Currently, the $8 billion pipeline is not guaranteed to happen. Groups have sued the federal government for the permit it issued TransCanada. In Nebraska, the project has still not been approved. Opponents have been preparing to build camps—similar to what was seen in North Dakota against the Dakota Access Pipeline—along the proposed pipeline route.

Norway’s largest trade union body has voted in favour of economic, cultural, and academic boycott of Israel over its treatment of Palestinians. In response, Tel Aviv said that the union “placed itself shoulder to shoulder with the worst enemies of Israel.”

The Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) made the decision at the Congress on Friday, local media report. The Congress is the organization’s highest authority and holds its meetings every four years.

The Confederation should launch an effort “to achieve an international economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel,” representatives at the gathering stated. It is not yet clear, however, how the proposed ban would be implemented.

The boycott would serve as an instrument for Palestine to be recognized as state, and to bring an end to Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land and the Gaza blockade, Norwegian media report, citing the Congress.

The confederation went against the recommendations of its newly elected leader, Hans-Christian Gabrielsen, and voted 193 (some media report 197) to 117 in favour of boycotting Israel. Gabrielsen said that the decision would hurt Palestinian workers.

“The situation for Palestinian workers is fragile. Many rely on work in Israel,” he said.

Jan Olav Andersen, a member of the LO editorial committee who voted for the boycott, said “enough is enough.”

“This year is the fiftieth year since Israel’s violation of international law of occupation [of Palestine]… And diplomacy has not made the situation better,” he said.

The LO has “a strong position in society and has set its stamp on society’s development for more than 100 years,” according to its website. The umbrella organization is affiliated with 24 unions with around 900,000 workers.

The country’s foreign minister, Borge Brende, criticized the confederation’s vote, saying the government “strongly opposes” the idea.

“We need more cooperation and dialogue, not boycott,” he tweeted.

In the meantime, Israeli Ambassador to Norway Raphael Schutz said his country condemns the boycott against the Jewish State “in the strongest terms.”

“This immoral resolution reflects deeply rooted attitudes of bias, discrimination and double standard towards the Jewish state,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

According to the ambassador, “accepting the claim of return for millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants, not to the Palestinian state but to Israel, means in reality the dissolution of the Jewish state.”

“By adopting these positions LO placed itself shoulder to shoulder with the worst enemies of Israel,” he added.

For decades, the Palestinian Territories – currently a non-member observer state at the United Nations – have been demanding that both the U.N. and the international community fully recognize their territories as an independent, sovereign nation.

At least 137 of the 193 U.N. member nations have recognized Palestine’s independence so far. In December 2016, the UN Security Council passed a resolution demanding that Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities” on occupied Palestinian territories, with the US abstaining. It was the first resolution passed by the United Nations Security Council on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in nearly eight years.

Big Oil Now Has Authority to Arrest Citizens Who Protest a Pipeline on Their Own Property*

Big Oil Now Has Authority to Arrest Citizens Who Protest a Pipeline on Their Own Property*

By Claire Bernish

If you’re a resident of Huntingdon County unfortunate enough to have your property in the path of Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 pipeline, you can forget to protest — unless arrest and jail time aren’t an issue for you.

Common Pleas Court Judge George Zanic signed a rare and factious “writ of possession” order last week in favour of Sunoco, which had sought an “emergency measure” to thwart landowners protesting pipeline construction by occupying trees — on their own property.

In short, protesting encroachment of this pipeline on one’s own property will earn an arrest.

“We’re seriously looking at going to jail,” Elyse Gerhart told NPR.

“I’m not the type of person who lets injustice go unchallenged, and neither is my mother. What we’re doing makes [Sunoco] show their true face.”

NPR’s StateImpact Pennsylvania reports,

“Ellen and Stephen Gerhart in Huntingdon, Pa., along with their daughter Elyse, have become outspoken critics of the pipeline and the use of eminent domain by the company to take possession of land along the 350-mile route.

“Charges against Ellen Gerhart were dropped after she was arrested last year for trespass on her own property. But with this new writ, Sunoco can enlist law enforcement to arrest anyone within the easement, including the actual property owners.”

Sunoco, in no uncertain terms, has garnered the full weight of support via force of the U.S. government against the interests of citizens who have done literally nothing else wrong but have their properties awkwardly situated where Big Oil wants its pipeline to run.

Elyse Gerhart took to the trees in early February with an unknown number of others facing similarly offensive corporate actions, after the unironically monikered Department of Environmental Protection granted permits for Sunoco to begin construction of Mariner East 2.

As the Gerharts’ attempt to stave off the corporo-government’s eminent domain seizure of private property winds its way through courts, Judge Zanic’s order effectively quashes any remnants of effective protest the landowners had at their disposal — rendering moot their objections in favor of Sunoco’s plans to complete its pipeline until court proceedings play out.

Sunoco Logistics, it is imperative to note, completed a long-anticipated merger with Energy Transfer Partners — of Dakota Access Pipeline notoriety — just two days ago.

Given the extreme measures ETP employed against the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and supporting Indigenous and non-Native water protectors from around the globe — who were camped in opposition to DAPL for months near the banks of the Missouri River’s Lake Oahe reservoir — the move to usurp law-abiding civilians’ private property hardly comes as a shock.

Indeed, the pompousness of corporate theft of property under the already-contentious governmental program known as eminent domain seems par for the course for Big Oil — particularly now that industry darling, Donald Trump, occupies the White House.

Occupying treetops on their own properties has already led to the sort of disputatious confrontations, albeit on a smaller scale, which brought international scorn to the Dakota Access Pipeline Project. Although charges were ultimately dropped, authorities arrested Ellen Gerhart last year — for trespassing on her own property.

Attorney Rich Raiders is representing the Gerhart family in its challenge of eminent domain, and noted the court’s use of ‘writ of possession’ is “very rare and very unusual.”

A writ of possession technically allows authorities to seize control of everything you own — giving you and everyone in your household limited time to vacate the premises.

Twenty-seven acres of forests and wetlands comprise the Gerharts property in Huntingdon County, and the family has thus far stood resolute in refusing to voluntarily grant an easement and its 50-foot wide right-of-way with an additional 25-foot staging area for the Mariner East line.

In their appeal to the Commonwealth Court, the family argues, in part, Sunoco’s planned liquid natural gas pipeline — “which would carry ethane, propane, and butane from the Marcellus Shale to an export terminal in Delaware County” — is not in the public interest.

A common defense against eminent domain, any company arguing for seizure and use of private property normally bears the brunt of proving necessity and public interest — Sunoco, in this instance, claims Mariner East 2 would deliver needed heating oil to parts of Pennsylvania. Mariner East 1, the Gerharts and their attorney rebuff, already supplies what is needed — the second line is redundant and unnecessary.

In an email response to that claim, Sunoco spokesman Jeff Shields asserted the writ of possession holds to the confines of the law, telling StateImpact,

“We are proceeding with construction in Huntingdon County and elsewhere and will conduct ourselves according to the law at all times.”

As with Energy Transfer Partners’ horrendous steamrolling of Native American rights concerning the justifiably maligned Dakota Access Pipeline, that black-and-white simplistic view of Big Oil’s manifest rights hardly comes as a shock — though it might make right attitude has won no favour with landowners who otherwise couldn’t care less about the exploits of the industry.

This writ of possession and its granting authority to arrest property owners on their own land should they not permit notoriously faulty oil and gas infrastructure to impede in their lives proves yet again the government’s subservience to the corporate industry over the rights of people supposedly governed.

No matter Sunoco’s and ETP’s brazen claims to superiority over individual property rights, the argument legality supersedes inalienable rights will never tacitly equate a moral high ground.

And as Big Oil finds new impunity to run roughshod where it sees fit, that legality does not equal morality has never been more clear.

Millions of gallons of drilling fluids have spilled into Ohio’s wetlands.

By Fiona Macdonald

Environmentalists say their “worst fears” have been confirmed, with the company behind the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline getting caught producing two major spills in its latest project, just one month after construction started.

The Rover Pipeline will ultimately carry natural gas across Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, and Canada, crossing three major rivers in its path – but these latest incidents have caused millions of gallons of drilling fluids to flow into Ohio’s wetlands.

News of the leak came out this week thanks to regulatory filings obtained by the Ohio chapter of environmental group, the Sierra Club.

In the documents, Energy Transfer Partners – the company behind the Rover Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline – confirmed receiving notice of these “inadvertent” environmental violations.

According to the paperwork, on 13 April 2017, 7.6 million litres (2 million gallons) of drilling fluids were detected spilling into a wetland next to the Tuscarawas River in Stark County by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.

The drilling fluids covered an estimated 46,000 square metres (500,000 square foot) area of the wetlands and had “impacted water quality“, according to the report.

On 14 April 2017, another 190,000 litres (50,000 gallons) of drilling fluids were detecting, spilling into a wetland in Richland County in the Mifflin Township.

Drilling fluids themselves aren’t necessarily toxic or dangerous – you can think of them like a type of mud-based lubricant used to assist in the drilling of boreholes.

In this case, the fluid contained a type of clay known as bentonite, as well as mud and cuttings from the hole.

Those ingredients aren’t in themselves dangerous in small doses, but what’s concerning is that when they’re released on waterways and wetlands in large quantities, they can affect water quality and the fragile balance of local ecosystems.

Spokesperson Alexis Daniel told Bloomberg that the spills wouldn’t change the timeline of the US $4.2 billion pipeline, which is scheduled to be completed November 2017.

“Once the incidents were noted, we immediately began containment and mitigation and will continue until the issues are completely resolved,” she said.

Once it’s completed, the Rover Pipeline will cross some particularly important waterways in its 1,147-km (713-mile) length – including the Maumee, Sandusky, and Portage rivers, all of which feed into Lake Erie.

The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved the Rover Pipeline’s construction in February, and when it’s finished, it will transport an estimated 92 billion litres (3.25 billion cubic feet) of natural gas from the U,S,’ eastern shale to the market each day.

But the Ohio Sierra Club says these early spills are evidence that Energy Transfer Partners aren’t properly equipped to construct the pipeline without further environmental damage, and are protesting the continuation of the project.

“Construction just began just a few weeks ago, yet Energy Transfer has already spilled more than 2 million gallons of drilling fluids in two separate disasters, confirming our worst fears about this dangerous pipeline before it has even gone into operation,” director of the Ohio Sierra Club, Jen Miller, told Eco Watch.

“We’ve always said that it’s never a question of whether a pipeline accident will occur, but rather a question of when. These disasters prove that the fossil fuel industry is unable to even put a pipeline into use before it spills dangerous chemicals into our precious waterways and recreation areas.”

“Construction on the Rover Pipeline must be stopped immediately, as an investigation into Energy Transfer’s total failure to adequately protect our wetlands and communities is conducted,” she added.

To be fair, pipelines haven’t had the best environmental track record lately.

In December last year, as the Standing Rock protests continued over the Dakota Access Pipeline, a nearby pipeline spilled 176,000 gallons of oil into a creek just 2.5 hours away.

Worse, no one knows how long the pipeline was leaking before a local property owner noticed the spill.

That incident wasn’t associated with Energy Transfer Partners, but it’s just another sign that companies need to do a better job of monitoring and regulating these pipelines if they’re going to continue to build them.

Let’s hope the affected Ohio waterways can be cleaned up quickly, and that these notices from the Environmental Protection Agency are enough to keep Energy Transfer Partners vigilant throughout the rest of construction.

Spain Follows Iceland and Arrests Top Bankers*

Spain Follows Iceland and Arrests Top Bankers*

By Ariana Marisol

Spain is following in Iceland’s footsteps by charging their top bankers for failings that led to the loss of millions of Euros for smaller investors.

Last year, Iceland jailed nine of its top bankers for a total of 46 years for crimes relating to the 2008 economic crash.

Last year, Spain’s Supreme Court ruled that there were “serious inaccuracies” in the listing that led investors to back certain banks. Because of this, the bank has had to pay out millions of Euros in compensation.

Wolf Street explains,

“As part of the epic, multi-year criminal investigation into the doomed IPO of Spain’s frankenbank Bankia – which had been assembled from the festering corpses of seven already defunct saving banks – Spain’s national court called to testify six current and former directors of the Bank of Spain, including its former governor, Miguel Ángel Fernández Ordóñez, and its former deputy governor (and current head of the Bank of International Settlements’ Financial Stability Institute), Fernando Restoy. It also summoned for questioning Julio Segura, the former president of Spain’s financial markets regulator, the CNMV [National Securities Market Commission] (the Spanish equivalent of the SEC in the US).”

“The six central bankers and one financial regulator stand accused of authorizing the public launch of Bankia in 2011 despite repeated warnings from the Bank of Spain’s own team of inspectors that the banking group was ‘unviable.”

The court is questioning why they allowed Bankia to sell shares in an initial public offering in 2011, less than a year before Bankia’s porfolio of bad mortgage loans forced the government to seize control of it. There is evidence the regulators had “full and thorough knowledge” of Bankia’s plight. After its nationalization, it reported a €19.2bn ($24.7bn) loss for 2012, the largest in Spanish corporate history.

Internal emails and documents played a huge role in bringing down the central banking officials to task for the failure of Bankia. Inspectors who brought issues to the attention of superiors were allegedly ignored.

While Spanish judges are generally reluctant to sentence first-time financial criminals to prison, actions are being taken against the wrongdoings and wrongdoers of Bankia.

Meanwhile, taxpayers in the United States have yet to see Big Bankers criminally responsible for the financial ruin of millions of citizens brought to any semblance of justice.

Vaccine Induced Chronic Fatigue Syndrome*

Vaccine Induced Chronic Fatigue Syndrome*

By Christina England

Every two years, for the past twenty years, a group of approximately 70 scientists have met at different locations around the world to discuss the effects that aluminum has had on living things.

In March 2017, they met in Vancouver, Canada, for this year’s meeting, titled The 12th Annual Keele Meeting on Aluminum, which was sponsored by the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMRSI).

One of the scientists who spoke at the conference this year was keynote speaker Dr. Romain Gherardi, from the Neuromuscular Pathology Expert Centre at Paris-Est Créteil University (UPEC).

According to Ms. Celeste McGovern, who reported on the conference and the presentations, Dr. Gherardi had given an extremely frightening overview of the most novel and profound aluminum research related to vaccination.

She wrote:

“Aluminum oxyhydroxide (Alhydrogel) and aluminium hydroxyphosphate (Adjuphos), are nano-materials widely used as immune stimulants or “adjuvants” of vaccines. Children have received them in increasing doses from the hepatitis B shot on their day of birth, in diphtheria-tetanus shots given repeatedly in their first six months of life and in pneumococcal, meningitis, HPV vaccines and more.

In at least seven different countries, patients with myalgic chronic fatigue syndrome have been described after they received one of these aluminum-containing vaccines. In France in the late ’90s, Gherardi began taking biopsies of the deltoid muscle of these patients and he discovered lesions in these – clumps of aggregated aluminium hydroxide engulfed in white blood cells called macrophages — at the injection site. Subsequent studies in mice found that aluminum in these cells slowly migrates to their brains where it seems to prefer to settle, permanently. He called the phenomenon Macrophagic Myofasciitis (MMF).”

Continuing on the subject of MMF, she explained that:

“MMF mainly manifests as joint and muscle pain, fatigue and weakness, cognitive dysfunction, including attention and memory impairment and sleep disturbances. And many MMF sufferers eventually develop one of more than 100 different autoimmune disorders from alopecia to multiple sclerosis, sometimes years after the initial illness. So MMF is described as a facet of “autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants” (ASIA) identified by leading Israeli immunologist Yehuda Shoenfeld in 2011.”

She stated:

“But the MMF picture is still developing.  Another French researcher, Jérôme Authier, presented his group’s findings published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine this year showing that neuro-imaging of MMF patients’ brains by PET-scan reveals distinct patterns of impaired glucose metabolism in multiple regions of their brains.

New research presented by Housam Eidi of the University of British Columbia also looked at mouse brain function and aluminium (Al) concentration long after injections. Surprisingly, the researchers found the lowest dose of Alhydrogel exerts the greatest neurotoxic effects. And small particle size seems to be critical for this brain damage, Eidi explained”

Ms. McGovern’s information is further supported by the work of Dr. Sarah Myhill, a private medical practitioner from the U.K. who is particularly concerned that multiple vaccinations could be causing an epidemic of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Concerns About Too Many Vaccinations Being Given Together

In 2016, Dr. Myhill, a professional who in principle is not opposed to vaccination, wrote an article titled Vaccination: Pros and Cons.

In her article, she discussed whether multiple vaccinations and the overuse of antibiotics were responsible for the gradual erosion of the immune system.

On the subject of CFS, she stated that:

“Vaccinations are a two-edged sword because whilst they have the potential to prevent illness, they can certainly cause flares of CFS. Indeed, I have several patients with CFS dated from vaccinations such as flu or hepatitis B. However usually this has been on the background of overwhelming stress.” 

She continued:

Gulf War Syndrome.

GWS is a classic example of a CFS with several causes. One probable cause was the many vaccinations that the soldiers received in one day. Some said they had 14 injections at one session. It is perfectly possible that this could have caused some sort of immune disruption resulting in CFS. (own emphasis)

This information we know to be true, because in his witness statement, Gulf War veteran, Mr. Richard Turnbull, told the court that he had received the following vaccinations and a few that he could not remember:

  • Anthrax
  • bubonic plague
  • cholera
  • typhoid
  • yellow fever
  • hepatitis A
  • hepatitis B
  • meningitis

We also know that his list of vaccinations should have also included the now discontinued MMR vaccination, Pluserix, and the pertussis vaccination.

This information is supported by the original supply agreement between the U.K. government and SmithKline & French, which shows that SmithKline & French agreed to distribute 1,400,000 Pluserix vaccinations (Urabe MMR) to the U.K. for use on the U.K.’s babies and the armed forces.

The agreement, which was signed in August 1988, stated:

“This Agreement’s designated contract reference is N1D0288.

SK&F have agreed to supply and NHS have agreed to purchase for onward sale to United Kingdom Health Authorities and the Armed Forces 1,400,000 doses of “Pluserix” (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine at a cost of 3.80 per dose (exclusive of value added tax) to NHS of as NHS shall require to facilitate the United Kingdom Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccination campaign which commences on 3rd October 1988. The supply of vaccine shall be upon the terms of this agreement.”

See: Gulf War Syndrome: Documents Prove UK and US Military Personnel were Injected with Untested Vaccines for more information.

In her summary, Dr. Sarah Myhill stated that:

My concerns about vaccinations. My philosophy is always ‘mimic Nature’. A vaccination will never produce the same strength of immunity as getting the real infection. My worries are: The insidious erosion of the immune system. Giving vaccinations may block very useful cross immunity to other viruses. For example, there are some viruses which cause cancer. I do not wish to inadvertently block immunity to one of those! We are constantly meeting new viruses and our bodies have to learn to cope with them. We have no idea of what long term problems we are storing up.”

She could be correct because more and more of the vaccinations that are being recommended by our governments today contain aluminum as an ingredient. According to the free eBook published by the CMSRI, vaccines can induce autoimmune diseases in genetically prone individuals.

Toxic Amounts of Aluminum in Vaccinations

Dr. Robert Sears is another professional who is exceptionally worried about the effect aluminum is having on our health. In his paper, titled Is Aluminum The New Thimerosal?, Dr. Sears explained that aluminum is added to vaccinations to help them work more efficiently.

During his research, he came across a number of extremely worrying documents, including one written by the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN). Describing the document in depth, Sears wrote:

“The source of the daily limit of 4 to 5 mcg of aluminum per kilogram of body weight quoted by the ASPEN statement seems to be a study that compared the neurologic development of about 100 premature babies who were fed a standard IV solution that contained aluminum, with the development of 100 premature babies who were fed the same solution with almost all aluminum filtered out. The study was prompted by a number of established facts: that injected aluminum can build up to toxic levels in the bloodstream, bones, and brain; that preemies have decreased kidney function and thus a higher risk of toxicity; that an autopsy performed on one preemie whose sudden death was otherwise unexplained revealed high aluminum concentrations in the brain; and that aluminum toxicity can cause progressive dementia.”

He continued:

“However, none of these documents or studies mentions vaccines; they look only at IV solutions and injectable medications. Nor does the FDA require labels on vaccines warning about the dangers of aluminum toxicity, although such labels are required for all other injectable medications. All of these studies and label warnings seem to apply mainly to premature babies and kidney patients. What about larger, full-term babies with healthy kidneys?”

He explained:

“However, these documents don’t tell us what the maximum safe dose would be for a healthy baby or child, and I can’t find such information anywhere. This is probably why the ASPEN group suggests, and the FDA requires, that all injectable solutions be limited to 25 mcg; we at least know that that level is safe.”

If this information is correct, then why do so many of the recommended childhood vaccinations include far above the recommended amounts of aluminum?

According to Dr. Sears, the levels of aluminum included in childhood vaccinations are as follows:

  • DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis): 170–625 mcg, depending on
    manufacturer
  • hepatitis A: 250 mcg
  • hepatitis B: 250 mcg
  • Hib (for meningitis; PedVaxHib brand only): 225 mcg
  • HPV: 225 mcg
  • Pediarix (DTaP–hepatitis B–polio combination): 850 mcg
  • Pentacel (DTaP–Hib–polio combination): 330 mcg
  • pneumococcus: 125 mcg (emphasis added)

These levels far exceed the safe levels recommended by ASPEN, especially when you consider that a newborn baby is vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine, containing 250 mcg of aluminum, at birth!

In fact, according to Dr. Sears, the FDA stated that:

“Although aluminum toxicity is not commonly detected clinically, it can be serious in selected patient populations, such as neonates (newborns), and may be more common than is recognized.” (emphasis added)

Since his paper, which was written in 2008, there are even more vaccinations containing aluminum.

Terrifying Neurodegenerative Plague Expected to Affect One in Two Americans

According to Ms. McGovern, no one can say how many of the one to four million Americans and millions more globally are suffering from serious chronic fatigue due to aluminum poisoning.

She continued with the following statement:

“No one can say how many of the current 50 million cases of autoimmune disease in America are a long-term fallout from shots taken years ago.

Terrifying as that is, there were two more days of this research presented.  A 2017 study in the Journal of Translational Medicine from Exley’s lab demonstrated the presence of some of the highest contents of aluminum ever observed in brain tissue in every section of tissue sampled from brains of patients with familial early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. So, could it be that when aluminum migrates from vaccines to brains it is somehow associated with Alzheimer’s disease, the terrifying neurodegenerative plague that is expected to affect one in two Americans by 2050?

Read Scientists Prove Link Between Aluminum and Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease for further information.
The 12th Annual Keele Meeting on Aluminum is one of the many events sponsored by the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI), a medical and scientific collaborative that was established to provide research funding for independent studies on causal factors underlying the chronic disease and disability epidemic.

ACLU Files 13 Lawsuits against Government Related to Travel Ban*

By Yessenia Funes

 

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) officially filed 13 separate lawsuits today (April 12) after the federal government did not respond to its 18 Freedom of Information Act requests for information on the administration’s “Muslim ban” in February.

The lawsuits demand records from local U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Department of Homeland Security offices to learn how specific municipalities (including Baltimore, Detroit and Seattle) implemented the travel ban on-the-ground at airports and other ports of entry.

“CBP has a long history of ignoring its obligations under the federal Freedom of Information Act, a law that was enacted to ensure that Americans have timely access to information of pressing public concern,” said Mitra Ebadolahi, a staff attorney with the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties, in the press release.

The public has a right to know how federal immigration officials have handled the implementation of the Muslim bans, especially after multiple federal courts have blocked various aspects of these executive orders.”

President Donald Trump issued the controversial travel ban via executive order on January 27. After the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled against it, the Trump administration released a second version on March 6. Federal judges also stopped implementation of that one.
