Toxic Forever Chemicals Lurking in Eco-Friendly Food Packaging?

Chemical Free Life

Some health- and environment-conscious consumers and food retailers are starting to think they are damned if they do and damned if they don’t.   Even when they opt for the newer, “healthier and more eco-friendly” food packaging over plastic or Styrofoam for takeout meals there seems to be problems.  In this case (as there was previously with Whole Foods food packaging for their deli offerings) there is evidence suggesting that the compost-based, eco-friendly food packaging used by some carryout restaurants and delis contain toxic PFAS chemicals which have been demonstrated to leach into the food–and therefore into the consumer’s body.

Toxic PFAS chemicals may be in your eco-friendly takeout food containers

A recent report released by the New Food Economy, a non-profit newsroom that investigates food-related issues, reported the “cancer-linked” presence of PFAS, also called “forever chemicals,” in the fiber bowls used at fast casual dining spots and other…

Stop Poaching: Petition

Guardians Of Life

Petition by: Darragh Campbell

Dear Simon Birmingham

I’m campaigning against animal poaching and my goal is to raise awareness against poaching that is mainly happening over in Africa. I’m respectfully asking you to ensure that labelling on alternative medicines imported from Asia is complete and accurate. This is important because in recent years products have been tested here in Australia and have been found to include traces of endangered animals.

DNA testing of traditional Chinese medicines has shown that many contain traces of endangered animals. The tests were performed by Australian scientists devising new ways to detect exactly what plant and animal materials are contained in traditional Chinese medicines and herbal teas. In the past some have been found to contain materials from endangered species, banned medicines and even toxic metals. Some samples were found to contain DNA from potentially harmful plants, and from endangered species such as black bears…

Dems refuse to condemn Antifa, their own brownshirts – Not One Dem Presidential Candidate Condemns


Democrats refuse to condemn Antifa, their own brownshirts

Aug 9, 2019 By Thomas Lifson

As America slips into what many are calling a “cold civil war,” not a single Democrat running for president is willing to condemn Antifa, the contemporary version of the Brownshirts that terrorized opponents of the Nazis in Weimar Germany.

CNS News repeatedly sought comments from all 23 Democrats currently running for president, and not a single one of them would condemn the thugs terrorizing and suppressing their own opponents.

Despite the well-documented violence of the radical left Antifa group — the Department of Homeland Security classifies it as “domestic terrorist violence” – not one of the 23 Democrats running for president would condemn Antifa when repeatedly asked by over the course of 12 business days.

The Trump administration did respond, within a day, condemning Antifa.

Here It Is… Complete List of Clinton Associates Who Allegedly Died Mysteriously or Committed Suicide Before Testimony, Including Jeffrey Epstein — The Gateway Pundit

Truth2Freedom's Blog

On Saturday multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, the highest profile prisoner in US custody, was found dead in his prison cell in Manhattan.

This occurred the day after two thousand previously sealed court documents involving the Jeffrey Epstein child sex abuse case were released to the public.

The documents described how Bill Clinton held a private party on Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile island.

Clinton made at least 27 times trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane. Most of those flights were with underage girls.

Despite a previous attempt on his life just three weeks ago the prison guards skipped the 30 minute required checkson Epstein’s cell last night.

Early this morning they found him dead.

Jeffrey Epstein is the latest in a long list of Clinton family associates and acquaintances who died mysteriously or committed suicide before their public testimony.

Has anyone actually read the El Paso manifesto?


by Byron York | August 07, 2019

The manifesto written by accused El Paso mass killer Patrick Crusius is the basis for the argument that the shootings were inspired by President Trump. Media commentators, Democratic presidential candidates, and all types of Trump critics have made that case in the days since the murders.

Much discussion was spurred by an article in the New York Times with the headline, “El Paso Shooting Suspect’s Manifesto Echoes Trump’s Language.” The story quoted just 28 words of the nearly 2,400-word manifesto. It noted that Crusius specifically wrote that his views “predate Trump.” And it warned that “linking political speech, however heated, to the specific acts of ruthless mass killers is a fraught exercise.” Nevertheless, the Times declared that even “if Mr. Trump did not originally inspire the gunman, he has brought into the mainstream polarizing ideas and people once consigned to the fringes of…

African-Americans Sued Mississippi Company for Discriminating Against Them in Favor of Latinos; ICE Raid Removed Almost 600 Illegal Latino Workers

Update: ‘The Hunt’ movie ads pulled; film depicts elites killing Trump supporters, pro-lifers. The movie was scheduled to be released September 27th has now been put on hold!
By Brandon Showalter, CP Reporter | Friday, August 09, 2019

UPDATE: 1:35 P.M. ET Aug. 10: NBC Universal has pulled the Sept. 27 release of the film “The Hunt” but still plans to distribute it at a later date.

The studio released a statement on Saturday, saying: “While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for ‘The Hunt,’ after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film. We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film,” Deadline Hollywood reports.

Advertisements have been pulled from an upcoming satirical horror film in which elites hunt and kill “deplorables” amid intensifying political hostilities. The decision was made to pull the ads but not the movie after three mass shootings were committed this summer.

The plot of the NBC Universal movie “The Hunt,” which is slated for release on Sept. 27, follows wealthy thrill-seekers who board a private jet and fly off to a secluded five-star resort where their mission is to hunt and kill so-called deplorable Americans.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC’s Universal is now reconsidering its ad strategy following the mass shootings at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California, the Walmart shopping center in El Paso, Texas, and at a nightclub in Dayton, Ohio. The studio’s reevaluation came amid reports that sports network ESPN had removed a trailer for the movie that was previously approved for broadcast.

“The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse [production company] follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals,” The Hollywood Reporter noted.

Characters in the movie that are considered prey for the hunters are referred to as deplorables, a term former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used to describe supporters of presidential candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

“Did anyone see what our ratf—-er-in-chief just did?” one character in the movie asks, making an apparent reference to President Trump.

“At least the hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables,” another character replies.

“The Hunt,” which features Oscar winner Hillary Swank, was originally titled “Red State vs. Blue State.” Among the deplorables in the film — who were pre-selected to be murdered — were those who voiced opposition to abortion.

“The script for ‘The Hunt’ features the red-state characters wearing trucker hats and cowboy shirts, with one bragging about owning seven guns because it’s his constitutional right. The blue-state characters — some equally adept with firearms — explain that they picked their targets because they expressed anti-choice positions or used the N-word on Twitter,” The Hollywood Reporter added.

The outlet noted that some studios didn’t want to touch the movie because of its content and cited a filmmaker who questioned the wisdom of making a film of this kind given recent events. An NBC Universal executive said in response that the film is satire, and is intended to show “what a stupid, crazy world we live in” and that the movie may now prove to be even more powerful.

After conservative news outlets reported about the movie’s themes and its ads being pulled, the left-leaning website Snopes — that claims to fact-check news reports — gave an “unproven” rating to the claim that the film will feature liberal or left-wing characters hunting Trump supporters for sport.

“How exactly did anyone think this was a good idea even before the El Paso and Dayton shootings?” political author Matt Margolis asked in an op-ed published by PJ Media, referencing violent attacks in the past few years on Republican politicians, such as Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.

In a segment on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Catholic author and journalist Raymond Arroyo said the movie is disgusting and should be pulled, particularly in light of the ongoing tension surrounding gun violence.

El Paso Shooter Promoted Population Control: “If We Can Get Rid of Enough People” Planet Will be “Sustainable”



The man who police say committed the deadly shooting spree in El Paso, Texas, is believed to have published an anti-immigrant manifesto minutes before the attack.

Law enforcement officials said they were confident that an anti-immigrant screed posted online belongs to Patrick Wood Crusius, 21, who they said is responsible for Saturday’s mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso—leaving at least 20 dead and 26 wounded or injured.

The nearly 2,400-word manifesto outlines reasons for launching the attack, breaking down the “political” and “economic” motivations.

The entire diatribe argues that U.S. leaders—both Republicans and Democrats—are guilty of allowing unfettered immigration into the country and that violent action is needed to preserve the white population.

“This attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas. They are the instigators, not me. I am simply defending my country from cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an…

FBI Was Preparing To Hire Social Media Monitors Weeks Before El Paso, Dayton Attacks


By Jennie Taer -August 5, 2019

Several weeks before the shootings that took 29 innocent lives the FBI had posted on the bureau’s website a request for private sector monitors to assist federal agents in tracking social media posts to prevent future attacks, according to the post.

It wasn’t soon enough. Over the weekend in the span of 13 hours two gunmen, one in El Paso and the other in Dayton, Ohio took the lives of 29 civilians, including the gunman from Dayton.

According to the FBI website, there is a dire need to access “real time” information on users of all social media platforms. The FBI’s mission for the project “is to detect, disrupt, and investigate an ever growing diverse range of threats to U.S. National interests.”

On Monday, President Trump called on the FBI and DOJ to work closely with social media giants.

Caravans of Illegals Have Brought Deadly “Assassin Bug” and Chagas Disease to the U.S.

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Many of us have been wondering about diseases brought into the U.S. by illegal immigrants.  Little did we know that deadly bugs never seen in our country have now invaded half of our States.  These bugs come from Mexico, Central America and South America.

The bug goes by various names.  One of these names has a rather endearing sound to it:  the Kissing Bug.  But don’t be fooled. When you see why it was named this, you will be alarmed.

The Kissing Bug name came about because when these insects enter your home, they wait till the middle of the night and bite around the mouth area and also around the eyes.

July 4th Quake Centered at Skytop Rocket Propulsion Test Facility; Quake Swarm Appears Mostly Centered in Low Risk Area-Away from Faults

Mining Awareness +

This area of the US Naval Air Warfare Center, China Lake dates from the Manhattan Project. Common sense, as well as eye-witness testimony, indicate that there are underground facilities, as well as above ground ones. We can only speculate as to the extent of the underground network. There are likely old mines in the area, as well. Most likely old mines were expanded and turned into underground tunnel-test facilities. The original M 6.4 earthquake was centered in the area of the Skytop Rocket Propulsion Test Facility, described further below. The quakes appear to be apart from known earthquake faults, or at least apart from any major ones. They are almost entirely within the Naval Air Warfare Center, China Lake.

Historic hot spells in Churchill, Polar Bear Capital of the World, in late June/early July


Amid reports of a late June heat wave in Europe this year, I thought I would check out the temperature in Churchill, Manitoba – where sea ice off the coast has been rather slow to melt this year with no reports yet of polar bears onshore. It turns out that Churchill has fairly often seen very hot weather (around 90F/30C) for a few days at this time of year but 2019 has certainly not been one of them. Temperatures in Churchill on 28 June this year were about 40 degress F below previous highs (more than 15 degrees C) according to online Environment Canada weather comparison reports that go back to 1943 (although their records for Churchill go back to 1929).

Reality of Greenland’s melting ice sheet shown in photo of sled dogs walking through water – CNN

In this photo taken on Thursday June 13, 2019 sled dogs make their way in Northwest Greenland with their paws in melted ice water.

Steffen Olsen, a scientist with the Danish meteorology institute, was on a routine mission in Northwest Greenland to retrieve oceanographic and weather monitoring tools place by his colleagues on sea ice when he ran into a problem.

He couldn’t see them — they usually flat white sea ice was covered in war, the result of flooding from Greenland’s ice sheet, the second largest on the planet.

The incredible photo he took, of sled dogs ankle deep in a wide expanse of white blue water, quickly went viral, destined to join pictures of starving polar bears, shrunken glaciers, stranded walruses and lakes turn bone-dry in the pantheon of evidence of our ongoing climate catastrophe.

As Olson said on Twitter, communities in Greenland–mainly indigenous — “rely on sea ice for transport, hunting and fishing.” They will be among the first affected by the melting of the ice sheet, but the repercussions will not remain limited to Greenland or even North America.

Proposed US House Laws Appear to Remove Benefits Agreement Guarantees for Places where Nuclear Waste is Sited; Give California Waste Priority Removal

Mining Awareness +

Any priority in removal of spent nuclear fuel (nuclear waste) should be based on multiple factors, including flood and fires, and not earthquakes alone. Many California members of Congress are currently trying to rig the system and make sure that California nuclear waste gets ahead in line, when, and if, an interim or permanent nuclear dump is opened, by specifying that earthquake prone areas, with closed reactors and high population, get priority removal. Instead of this bill, there should be investigation of which sites are most at risk. Earthquakes and nearby population shouldn’t be the only criteria. Flooding and/or fire may be more serious issues for protecting the nuclear waste. This should be a technical decision and not a political one. If the California nuclear waste were properly repackaged and housed correctly, it might survive a major earthquake.

Concern rises about possible uranium mining near Grand Canyon

By Gregory Wallace, CNN

(CNN)  Federal officials are expected to rule in the next month on a petition that could eventually lead to uranium mining around the Grand Canyon, which conservation advocates warn could irreparably pollute the region’s limited groundwater supply.

While the petition is under consideration, the Commerce and Interior departments have made a series of decisions including reclassifying uranium as a critical mineral and developing a plan calling for increased domestic mining.
The departments’ decisions have raised the concern of those who oppose mining in the region, who worry the administration may use the moves to justify modifying or rescinding the Department of Interior’s 2012 decision that largely blocked mining on more than 1 million acres near the national park for 20 years. That 2012 decision, which was made to give the…

Occasionally, I used the radar to ?see? through rainfall and detect the navigation buoys (which had special radar reflectors mounted on them) that marked the entrance to a safe harbor (the sailing equivalent to ?flying on instruments?.)
