Real Science

Good thing he didn’t nibble his Pop-Tart into the shape of a car. They kill one million people every year.

BLM fracking racket exposed! Armed siege and cattle theft from Bundy ranch really about fracking leases

a12iggymom's Blog

(NaturalNews) The Bureau of Land Management says its 200-man armed siege of the Cliven Bundy ranch in Nevada is all about protecting an “endangered tortoise.” But a Natural News investigation has found that BLM is actually in the business of raking in millions of dollars by leasing Nevada lands to energy companies that engage in fracking operations.

This document from the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology(1) shows significant exploratory drilling being conducted in precisely the same area where the Bundy family has been running cattle since the 1870’s. The “Gold Butte” area is indicated on the lower right corner of the document (see below), and it clearly shows numerous exploratory drilling operations have been conducted there.

What’s also clear is that oil has been found in nearby areas and possibly even within the Gold Butte area itself.

It is, of course, customary for the U.S. government to bring…

Scheme to neutralize 36 states’ votes advances – Lawmakers line up behind plan that dumps Electoral College without constitutional amendment

a12iggymom's Blog


The National Popular Vote effort, which could see the 14 states with the largest populations decide the presidency, is more than halfway to its goal of legally bypassing the Electoral College established in the Constitution.
Last week, the Maine state Senate voted in support of the plan one week after both houses of the New York legislature overwhelmingly supported it.
Now the governors of both states will need to decide whether to formally back the National Popular Vote, or NPV.
The plan is more than halfway to its goal of electing future presidents via the popular vote, after Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, an independent, signed on last July.
The NPV campaign seeks to obtain the consent of the majority of the 538 votes in the Electoral College to award its electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote.
Now 10 jurisdictions possessing 136 electoral votes are part…

Aspartame’s Name Changed to Amino Sweet: A Toxin By Another Name is Still a Toxin

a12iggymom's Blog

asparthame
Natural Society has been talking about the dangers of Aspartame for quite some time now. It is a dangerous artificial sweetener found in many of the foods we consume every day, including soft drinks, chewing gum, breakfast cereals, and jams. Now, it’s important to know that aspartame may be disguised as a new name in your favorite foods – aminosweet.

Used as a sugar substitute and often marketed as Nutrasweet and Equal, aspartame is an excitotoxin that destroys the brain and body. Its use has been a controversial subject since the 1980s when the CEO of Searle, Donald Rumsfeld, pushed for it’s approval to be sold on the market. Now, its name is being changed, with FDA approval, to try to dupe millions into purchasing and consuming this toxin once again.

Aspartame, even renamed Amino Sweet, is not safe. This substance is made using genetically modified bacteria in the US…

Desmond Tutu Grants The World Another 15 Year Reprieve!

Real Science

Desmond Tutu The Guardian, Thursday 10 April 2014

We need an apartheid-style boycott to save the planet We must stop climate change. And we can, if we use the tactics that worked in South Africa against the worst carbon emitters

This week in Berlin, scientists and public representatives have been weighing up radical options for curbing emissions contained in the third report of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The bottom line is that we have 15 years to take the necessary steps. The horse may not have bolted, but it’s well on its way through the stable door.

This is exactly why we are getting stuck with crap legislation, and exactly what empowers these morons in the US government. Oh, the college is gun free? Oh, good then!
