Fast Food Causes Alzheimer’s Disease, Makes Population Stupid

From: Natural News

What happens when you feed a mouse a nine-month diet of high-fat, high-sugar junk foods? They develop signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

That’s what Swedish researchers discovered in recent findings published by the Karolinska Institutet’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. They were attempting to test the effects of fast food and junk food on individuals with the apoE4 gene variant, which is present in 15 to 20 percent of humans.

Mice with the same gene variant took only nine months on a fast food diet to develop the abnormal brain tangles and chemical changes indicative of Alzheimer’s disease. …

For example, a linguistic analysis of the recent debate between Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Joseph Biden revealed that Palin spoke at about a ninth-grade level, while Biden spoke at an eight-grade level.

One hundred and fifty years ago, in 1858, Abraham Lincoln spoke at an eleventh-grade level during his debates against Stephen Douglas. …

In 2008, the American population has become so stupid that the majority of voters can no longer linguistically parse the meanings of complex sentences or even understand the implications of cause and effect. Thus, presidential races come down to popularity contests, short slogans and emotionally-driven rallies that offer nothing substantive to an intelligent voter.

The intelligent candidate for this most recent election, Ron Paul, was too “complicated” for mainstream America because he tried to explain the inner workings of the banking system and the money supply. Too bad he didn’t know the way to win the hearts of the American voter is to speak to their junk-food-poisoned minds at a fifth-grade level. …

The Romans inadvertently poisoned their people with lead. The American empire, in contrast, is poisoning its own people with processed foods, pharmaceuticals, vaccines and poisonous chemicals in personal care products. The Romans, at least, ate a Mediterranean diet….

Ron Paul: How We Bully the World — “You do it our way & we’ll give you money. If you don’t do it our way we’ll bomb ya”

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from Ron Paul’s Russia Today interview

“We have set the stage for people to be motivated to despise what we’re doing, because we’re always telling other people what to do.

We do one of two things. We either say: ‘you do it our way and we’ll give you money. If you don’t do it our way we’ll bomb ya.’

I would tell him [President Obama]: reject those two. Be friends with people. Talk to people. Have negotiations and diplomacy.”

Ron Paul Warns Of Secret Plans To Create International Central Bank — “REAL PLANNING will not be out in the open until they want us to know about it”

From: InfoWars

Texas Congressman Ron Paul has warned that international forces are planning the creation of a global central bank that will see a new fiat monetary system come to dominate the world economy.

The 2008 presidential candidate also warned that Barack Obama’s administration will only represent a change in faces and not in policies.

War veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan came to Capitol Hill earlier this year to testify before Congress and give an eyewitness account about the horrors of war. Like the Winter Soldier hearings in March, when more than 200 service members gathered for four days in Silver Spring, Maryland to give their eyewitness accounts of the injustices occurring in Iraq and Afghanistan, “Winter Soldier on the Hill” was designed to drive home the human cost of the war and occupation—this time, to the very people in charge of doing something about it. […]

SERGIO KOCHERGIN: […] One other responsibility we had in al-Najaf was to guard an ammunition supply point about thirty miles northeast from our base. Our job consisted of patrolling ASB, and when we came into contact with Iraqis stealing stuff, we would take a physical action and to make sure they would never come back. We would shoot their tires out or shoot their windows, putting them on their knees like we’re about to execute them and just shoot in the air and laugh and yell at them and tell them that the next time will be worse. Our orders directly from command was to roughen up all the guys up. They would always tell us that everybody is an enemy and that we can’t trust them and the only way to keep them in place is to put as much fear as possible and to let them know that we’re not playing around. During the deployment in al-Najaf, nothing was fixed or intended on being fixed at all, except keeping the city in the occupied hands and instill the fear into the people at every chance we got.

My second deployment was in the city of Husaybah in Al Anbar province in Al Qaim region on the Syrian border. First thing I want to talk about is the drop weapons. Drop weapons are the weapons that are given to us by our chain of command in case we kill somebody without any weapons, and so that we would not get into trouble. We would carry an AK-47, and if the person that was shot did not have the weapon, an AK-47 would be placed at his corpse, and when the unit would come back to the base, they would turn it in to identify the shot man as the enemy combatant. The weapons could not come from anywhere else but the higher chain of command, because after the raid, all weapons were turned in into the armory and should have been recorded.

Two months into deployment, our rules of engagement changed to a personnel with having a bag and a shovel at the intersection or on the roads, that they were suspicious. This gave us a bigger window on who we can engage. Looking at the situation, this point of view, a lot of enemy combatants that we shot were in the wrong place at the wrong time. We were tired, mad, angry, Continue reading “ Winter Soldier on the Hill: War Vets Testify Before Congress About the Horrors of War — Dehumanization = “What makes the green grass grow?

Secret Citibank Memo: ‘Inflation Shock,’ Depression and/or Civil Disorder Coming in 2009/10

From: Natural News

An internal memo from a top Citibank analyst reveals what the banks really think about the global financial situation, and the outlook is grim.

“The world is not going back to normal after the magnitude of what they have done. When the dust settles this will either work, and the money they have pushed into the system will feed through into an inflation shock,” wrote Tom Fitzpatrick, Citibank’s chief technical strategist.

He goes on to explain that the massive money creation efforts by the Federal Reserve and other central banks will end with one of two things: A resurgence of inflation, or a fall into “depression, civil disorder and possibly wars.” Either outcome, he says, will cause the price of gold to skyrocket. Gold will push to well over $2,000 per ounce, he explains.

The timing on all this? Sometime in either 2009 or 2010, said the analyst.
