House Unanimously Approves Sanctions on Syrian Reconstruction

This is the same script from Iraq where the US first destroyed water treatment plants then imposed sanctions so they couldn’t be put back online.

Unbelievable: Congress to Pass Sanctions Against Syria Reconstruction

The US/al-Qaeda regime-change onslaught failed so now posturing US politicians will do everything they can to make sure Syria goes through the same sanctions hell Iraq did 1990-2003:

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives unanimously passed legislation to impose new sanctions on the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad and its allies, and those who do business with them. The move comes a month after President Donald Trump’s announcement to withdraw troops from Syria, and as some Arab governments are thawing relations with the Assad regime, which has all but secured a military victory after nearly eight years of war. The measure has been passed by the House twice in previous sessions, and a companion bill currently remains pending in the Senate.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., reintroduced the standalone version of the Syria bill, H.R. 31, which passed under fast-track…

NARCO-POLITIK: Was The ‘War on Drugs’ Really A Race War That Had Nothing To Do With Marijuana?

Nixon’s War on Drugs was really a war on African Americans.

“…Former aide to President Richard Nixon pulls back the curtain on the true motivation of the United States’ war on drugs… John Ehrlichman, who served 18 months in prison for his central role in the Watergate scandal, was Nixon’s chief domestic advisor when the president announced the “war on drugs” in 1971”

Marijuana-the war on drugs was a race war that had nothing to do with the plant – By Thomasina Copenhaver

The Drug War was officially declared on June 17, 1971 when President Nixon claimed drugs to be “Public Enemy Number One.” But was that really the case? Could there have been another far deeper, carefully calculated plan that had nothing to do with marijuana?

It was a different time. Or perhaps not. In a nation struggling with civil strife, poverty, racial inequality/tension, corporate domination, ecological disasters, and a hated, highly protested Vietnam War—sharing a…

America at War: Infographic Reveals How the U.S. Military Is Operating in 40% of the World’s Nations

“Democracy”: The number one US export.

New Human New Earth Communities

Earlier this month, NBC reporter and analyst William Arkin ended a 30-year career as a journalist, announcing in a “scathing letter,” Democracy Now! reports, that “he would be leaving the network. Arkin accuses “the media of warmongering while ignoring the, quote, ‘creeping fascism of homeland security.’” He does not equivocate in a follow-up interview with Amy Goodman. “The generals and the national security leadership” are also now, he says, “the commentators and the analysts who populate the news media” (Arkin himself is a former Army intelligence officer).

The problem isn’t only NBC, in his estimation, and it isn’t only supposed journalists cheerleading for war. Most of the conflicts the country is currently engaged in are un- or under-reported in major sources. His letter “applies to all of the mainstream networks, applies to CNN and Fox, as well…. We’ve just become so shallow that we’re not really able…

Is Chemotherapy Worth It? Studies Prove That The Chemical Intervention Actually Worsens Quality Of Life And Has No Benefit To Overall Survival

Quote

Research published in JAMA Oncology shows that for many patients, chemotherapy isn’t just inconvenient — it’s immensely damaging to quality of life and offers no significant benefits to overall survival.

Truth To Power

Chemotherapy may be the cornerstone of conventional cancer treatment, but that doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Studies continue to demonstrate that chemo isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In addition to worsening quality of life, past research has shown that up to 50 percent of patients on chemo will die — from the drugs, and not their cancer.

Some research even shows that chemo spreads cancer, instead of stopping it. The toxicity of chemotherapy is well documented; scientists have known for years that a number of chemo drugs are actually carcinogenicthemselves.

Even the American Cancer Society admits that cancers caused by chemotherapy are often even harder to treat than the original cancer. Combine that with the plague of fake cancer diagnoses peddled by shameless, profit-seeking “doctors,” and it’s clear that conventional cancer treatment is less about curing patients and more about making money.

Millions of Americans Flood Into Mexico for Health Care

The human caravan you haven’t heard about.

Millions of Americans Flood Into Mexico for Health Care

At just one checkpoint in Yuma, Arizona, up to 6,000 Americans cross the border every day and enter the bustling Mexican town of Los Algodones, seeking heath care.

Unlike the Trump administration that seeks to build a wall between the countries, Los Algodones welcomes Americans seeking dental care with open arms.

Los Algodones has to be seen to believed. There are more dentists per capita than anywhere else in the world. It seems like every square foot of public space wall is covered with advertisements promising quality and affordable dental care, vision care and prescription drugs. The community’s economy is built to serve the flood of “dental refugees” — mostly senior citizens from the US and Canada seeking major dental care they cannot afford in their own countries, even with insurance.

Banning Plastic: How Jamaica Moved To Save Its Environment

Prior to law change Jamaica on record with one of the highest per capita consumption of plastic bags, with the average person estimated to use around 500 bags each year.

Repeating Islands

c49226a658f409c039826d83ae62c751.jpg

A report by James Ellsmoor for Forbes.

Last month, Jamaica introduced a ban on single-use plastic bags, plastic straws and Styrofoam in a bid to reduce the impact plastic is having on the environment. Before the ban, Jamaica was known to have one of the highest per capita uses of plastic bags in the world, with the average person estimated to use around 500 bags each year .

The ban covers the manufacture, importation and distribution of disposable plastic bags, including the formerly ubiquitous black “scandal bags”, named as such due to their opaque black color that prevents others from viewing the scandalous contents contained inside!

One of Jamaica’s youngest parliamentarians has spearheaded the movement towards waste reduction on the island. Matthew Samuda is a Jamaican Senator who has long been involved in Jamaican politics,  and was appointed to the Upper House of Parliament in 2016 at the age of just 32. Though this new role…
