Just had a bright idea to help to spread a little light around the world… create a few candle images to spread light on various aspects.

If you’d like to share the light on your own blog/site, please feel free to save any or all of the candle images from this post to use in a post, or as a sidebar widget, or however you feel the light should be shared. Quite a few of us are affected by the ‘darkness’ in various ways at present, and quite a few of us are doing our own thing to spread the light. Let’s do it together!

How many African Green Monkeys are infected, euthanized and then organ harvested each year to make FDA-approved vaccines?

TheBreakAway

[Editor’s Note]

For those that think this is a joke, this very document at the CDC’s very own website shows this, and many other toxins within vaccines.  This is why its imperative people do their research, because if people really knew what vaccines had, they’d think they woke up in another reality.

Now that it’s been proven that vaccine manufacturers harvest kidney cells from African Green Monkeys to produce vaccines that are injected into children, many are now wondering just how many of these monkey are captured, euthanized, and processed into vaccine ingredients each year to make these FDA-approved poison jabs?

As you may recall, Natural News was falsely accused of spreading “fake news” after breaking the story on African Green Monkey kidney cells, and other horrific ingredients, being used in the manufacture of vaccines. For merely publishing the ingredients listed on…

9 Months Later: Jesus’ Tomb Restored By Scientists In $4M Project

Nwo Report

Tomblayla velasquez

A team of Greek scientists and restoration crews have finally completed a nine-month project to restore Jesus’ tomb, the Guardian reports.

According to the Christian faith, after Jesus was crucified, he was taken off the cross and laid to rest in a tomb donated by a wealthy benefactor. A stone was rolled in front of the tomb and guards were stationed. Therein occurred the miracle that Christianity hinges upon—the Easter story. In a great earthquake, the stone rolled away and when guards inspected the tomb, they found his body was gone. Jesus was thought to have risen from the dead. Christian writings teach that he appeared to a handful of friends in the days following.

The tomb is on the property of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Christian quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City. It has been a tourist attractions for Christians the world over…

How Bullfighting Breeds of Cattle can Save Jaguars

The Jaguar

Reducing rates of human-jaguar conflict, through the use of San Martinero cattle, might help to save jaguars. Jaguar by Cautrok77. CC BY-NC-SA 2.0

One of the most significant threats to jaguars comes from human-jaguar conflict. In other words, people often kill jaguars in order to protect livestock. While the total number of cattle killed by jaguars is often low in comparison to other causes of death, it is not evenly spaced. This means that some ranchers lose a significant portion of their herds to predators. Also, since cattle ranching is not overly profitable in much of Latin America, any loss can be hard. The problem is not helped by the fact that most cattle varieties have been bred to be docile. This means they have few, if any, anti-predator instincts (Rabinowitz, 2014). The same is not true for San Martinero cattle.

This remarkable breed is descended from the…

5 Plant Foods For Protection During Cold and Flu Season | VegNews

Life or Lunch?

Consuming healthful plant-foods regularly will decrease your risks of catching the dreaded cold or flu.

You know it is going to be a rough few days the moment when the sore throat, runny nose, headache, cough, and body aches begin. Often, these ailments—aka, a common cold and the flu—are caused by the rhinovirus, coronavirus, respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza virus, and the influenza viruses. Contrary to popular belief, vegans can get sick, too, as vitamin and nutrient deficiencies can trigger a significant decrease in our immune system function, therefore allowing the invasion of one of these viruses into our bodies. The good news is that certain plant foods can help prevent—and even treat—the common cold and flu. Here are five foods I recommend to my sick patients. Of course, if you find that you develop a high fever, have trouble breathing, or have a sudden worsening in your symptoms…

Senate votes to let ISPs sell your Web browsing history to advertisers

Nwo Report

ISP now stands for “invading subscriber privacy,” Democratic senator says.

Jon Brodkin

The US Senate today voted to eliminate broadband privacy rules that would have required ISPs to get consumers’ explicit consent before selling or sharing Web browsing data and other private information with advertisers and other companies.

The rules were approved in October 2016 by the Federal Communications Commission’s then-Democratic leadership, but are opposed by the FCC’s new Republican majority and Republicans in Congress. The Senate today used its power under the Congressional Review Act to ensure that the FCC rulemaking “shall have no force or effect” and to prevent the FCC from issuing similar regulations in the future.

The House, also controlled by Republicans, would need to vote on the measure before the privacy rules are officially eliminated. President Trump could also preserve the privacy rules by issuing a veto. If the House and Trump agree with the Senate’s action…

An ancient olive grove in southern Italy is currently on the frontlines of grassroots resistance to the Southern Gas Corridor project, the EU’s flagship energy project.

Earlier this week, members of the No TAP Committee, a local civil society group, and residents from the town of Melendugno mobilised to protest against what appears like the beginning of the works on the Italian section of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), the westernmost point of this gigantic energy infrastructure. The protesters have been met with fierce police response, and this development is an unprecedented escalation of a years long stand-off around the landfall site of the pipeline.

In the early hours of Monday (March 20), TAP excavators moved in, in a bid to uproot the olive trees and…

Russia and Europe has been doing resource related colonialism/ imperialism for longer than the US has existed. The US itself is the product of European imperialism and imperial competition, including Russian. Even today, Putin “kingmaker” and oligarch Roman Abramovich is among oligarchs owning the company Evraz, which provided a large percentage of the pipes for the Dakota Access and Keystone pipelines. Evraz will probably provide pipes for the Bayou Bridge pipeline, as well, which will impact US wetlands. Abramovich made much of his money exploiting the indigenous lands of the Russian far-east for gold and oil. His roots are far away along the Volga.

Censorship: Google to start flagging “offensive” content as another form of censorship 

sentinelblog

Source: Natural News, by Jayson Veley

One of the most dangerous words in America today is the word “offensive,” not because it’s used to describe something that hurts one’s feelings, but because of how it is used by the progressive Left. It goes without saying that the word “offensive” is a subjective term that can mean many different things to many different people; what Sally finds offensive may not be offensive to Joe, and vice versa. Because of the term’s lack of definition, it is up to us to give it definition. This is dangerous because it invites people to use the word in a way that best suits their own biases or agendas. Such is the case with the Democratic Party, which has essentially hijacked the word “offensive,” and now uses it to mean anything that comes out of the mouth of a conservative.

These Are The Most Dangerous Countries For American Tourists

Each year, the State Department issues dozens of advisories with the intent of keeping Americans safe as they travel abroad. What countries are targeted by these advisories, and what risks do Americans face by visiting them? Are State Department advisories effective in keeping American travelers safe?

We decided to investigate what are the most dangerous countries for American to visit as measured by State Department warnings and also by actual deaths. We used data from Priceonomics customer data.world, a platform that ties many different data sets together so it’s easy to analyze them (you can download their dataset here).

Whose Side Is God On?

Around the time of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln was asked if God was on his side. His response is a classic: “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”

Lincoln actually thought much about this matter. For example, he wrote a “Meditation on the Divine Will” in which he said: “In the present civil war, it is quite possible that God’s purpose is something different from the purpose of either party.”

All that is good advice, and we should heed these wise words. As I am now reading through the book of Joshua again I just came upon some rather similar words. Joshua has just been confronted by a person of great authority with sword drawn, so like an alert sentinel, he asks him: “Are…

Russia Plans to Fuel Floating Nuclear Reactor(s) in St. Petersburg – Endangering the City of 5 Million, Before Towing It Around Scandinavia

Russian State owned Rosatom, which answers directly to the President of Russia (Putin). Thus, it appears more accurate to say Putin Plans. He/it has recently forced an expensive, unwanted, nuclear power station upon Bulgaria through international legal action, and is building reactors in Iran, Turkey, and elsewhere. As Toshiba-Westinghouse’s probable bankruptcy shows, the nuclear industry cannot survive in free markets, even where it gets massive subsidies. The US taxpayer may lose part of its $8.3 billion loan given for reactors. French State owned Areva is undergoing massive injections of money but must answer, somewhat, to the French parliament. Russian State owned Rosatom is unique – it only answers to the Executive, i.e. Putin. Apart from free speech issues, this is the single biggest reason not to be owned by Putin.

I strongly oppose the recent voting actions by five of our Wisconsin United States Representatives, who swiftly and quietly, voted in favor of H.J. Resolution 69, authored by Alaska’s Rep. Don Young (R). The intent of Resolution 69, is to rollback a federal rule that was crafted to stop some of the most appalling “so-called” hunting practices imaginable on 16 national wildlife refuges covering 76 million acres in the state of Alaska. The Wisconsin Representatives who voted to remove critical rules protecting wildlife from cruel hunting practices on Alaskan Public Lands were Duffy, Gallagher,Grothman, Kind, and Sensenbrenner.

Dogfighting is an absolutely disgusting and inhumane practice that is unfortunately still too common in our society. Not only are the dogs forced to hurt one another, the people who fight them will often harm the dogs themselves. While the people who did this to Baron still haven’t been caught, Baron’s horrific injuries point to what is likely dogfighting. They could be have been carried out on him as punishment for losing a fight or as a crude way of treating injuries he sustained from another dog. Because of the extent of his injuries, investigators assume more than one person must have been involved:

Generally, one would expect something “new and improved” to be presented via a high-budget advertising campaign, press releases, and a giant hurrah.
