Out of control: AIDS and the corruption of medical science

By Celia Farber

Joyce Ann Hafford was a single mother living alone with her thirteen-year-old son, Jermal, in Memphis, Tennessee, when she learned that she was pregnant with her second child. She worked as a customer service representative at a company called CMC Call Center; her son was a top student, an athlete and musician. In April 2003, Hafford, four months pregnant, was urged by her obstetrician to take an HIV test. She agreed, even though she was healthy and had no reason to think she might be HIV positive. The test result came up positive, though Hafford was tested only once, and she did not know that pregnancy itself can cause a false positive HIV test. Her first thought was of her unborn baby. Hafford was immediately referred to an HIV/AIDS specialist, Dr. Edwin Thorpe, who happened to be one of the principal investigators recruiting patients for a clinical trial at the University of Tennessee Medical Group that was sponsored by the Division of AIDS (DAIDS)—the chief branch of HIV/AIDS research within the National Institutes of Health.


The objective of the trial, PACTG 1022, was to compare the “treatment-limiting toxicities” of two anti-HIV drug regimens. The core drugs being compared were nelfinavir (trade name Viracept) and nevirapine (trade name Viramune). To that regimen, in each arm, two more drugs were added—zidovudine (AZT) and lamivudine (Epivir) in a branded combination called Combivir. PACTG 1022 was a “safety” trial as well as an efficacy trial, which means that pregnant women were being used as research subjects to investigate “safety” and yet the trial was probing the outer limits of bearable toxicity. Given the reigning beliefs about HIV's pathogenicity, such trials are fairly commonplace, especially in the post-1994 era, when AZT was hailed for cutting transmission rates from mother to child.


The goal of PACTG 1022 was to recruit at least 440 pregnant women across the nation, of which 15 were to be enrolled in the University of Tennessee Medical Group. The plan was to assign the study's participants to one of two groups, with each receiving three HIV drugs, starting as early as ten weeks of gestation. Of the four drugs in this study, three belong to the FDA's category “C,” which means that safety to either mother or fetus has not been adequately established.


Joyce Ann Hafford was thirty-three years old and had always been healthy. She showed no signs of any of the clinical markers associated with AIDS—her CD4 counts, which measure the lymphocytes that are used to indicate how strong a person's immune system is, and which HIV is believed to slowly corrode, were in the normal range, and she felt fine. In early June 2003, she was enrolled in the trial and on June 18 took her first doses of the drugs. “She felt very sick right away,” recalls her older sister, Rubbie King. “Within seventy-two hours, she had a very bad rash, welts all over her face, hands, and arms. That was the first sign that there was a problem. I told her to call her doctor and she did, but they just told her to put hydrocortisone cream on it. I later learned that a rash is a very bad sign, but they didn't seem alarmed at all.”


Hafford was on the drug regimen for thirty-eight days. “Her health started to deteriorate from the moment she went on the drugs,” says King. “She was always in pain, constantly throwing up, and finally she got to the point where all she could do was lie down.” The sisters kept the news of Hafford's HIV test and of the trial itself from their mother, and Hafford herself attributed her sickness and nausea to being pregnant. She was a cheerful person, a non-complainer, and was convinced that she was lucky to have gotten into this trial. “She said to me, ‘Nell’ —that's what she called me—‘I have got to get through this. I can't let my baby get this virus.’ I said, ‘Well, I understand that, but you're awful sick.’ But she never expressed any fear because she thought this was going to keep her baby from being HIV positive. She didn't even know she was in trouble.”


On July 16, at her scheduled exam, Hafford's doctor took note of the rash, which was “pruritic and macular-papular,” and also noted that she was suffering hyperpigmentation, as well as ongoing nausea, pain, and vomiting. By this time all she could keep down were cans of Ensure. Her blood was drawn for lab tests, but she was not taken off the study drugs, according to legal documents and internal NIH memos.


Eight days later, Hafford went to the Regional Medical Center “fully symptomatic,” with what legal documents characterize as including: “yellow eyes, thirst, darkening of her arms, tiredness, and nausea without vomiting.” She also had a rapid heartbeat and difficulty breathing. Labs were drawn, and she was sent home, still on the drugs. The next day, July 25, Hafford was summoned back to the hospital after her lab reports from nine days earlier were finally reviewed. She was admitted to the hospital's ICU with “acute and sub-acute necrosis of the liver, secondary to drug toxicity, acute renal failure, anemia, septicemia, premature separation of the placenta,” and threatened “premature labor.” She was finally taken off the drugs but was already losing consciousness. Hafford's baby, Sterling, was delivered by C-section on July 29, and she remained conscious long enough not to hold him but at least to see him and learn that she'd had a boy. “We joked about it a little, when she was still coming in and out of consciousness in ICU,” Rubbie recalls. “I said to her, ‘You talked about me so much when you were pregnant that that baby looks just like me.’” Hafford's last words were a request to be put on a breathing tube. “She said she thought a breathing tube might help her,” says Rubbie. “That was the last conversation I had with my sister.” In the early morning hours of August 1, Rubbie and her mother got a call to come to the hospital, because doctors had lost Hafford's pulse. Jermal was sleeping, and Rubbie woke her own daughter and instructed her not to tell Jermal anything yet. They went to the hospital, and had been there about ten minutes when Joyce Ann died.

The AMA Writes the Laws

D o w n s i z e r - D i s p a t c h


QUOTES OF THE DAY:

"It would be unconstitutional for Congress to create a statute stating that it was a crime to engage in conduct forbidden by the AMA, or by particular HCBPs, or by the health care industry as a whole. This is because neither the AMA, nor the HCBPs, nor the health care industry more generally are governmental entities, and Congress does not have the power to delegate law-making authority outside of the government."
- DEFENDANTS JOINT MEMORANDUM, United States v. Stephen J. vs. Linda K. Schneider

"Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!"
- Sir Thomas More, in Robert Bolt's "A Man For All Seasons"

SUBJECT: The AMA Writes the Laws

Should the American Medical Association (AMA) have the power to write laws? Some bureaucrats think they already do.

DownsizeDC.org proposed the "Write the Laws Act" (WTLA) to prevent unelected bureaucrats from writing regulations that have the force of law. Only elected representatives should have that power. We believe there should be "no legislation without representation."

Sadly, we've just learned that the problem WTLA seeks to fix is even worse than we thought. Unelected bureaucrats in the Justice Department have now taken to treating the standards of a private organization, the AMA, as if they had the force of law.

A doctor in Kansas is facing twenty years to life for failing to conform to the standards of the American Medical Association.

Dr. Stephen J. Schneider and his wife, nurse Linda K. Schneider, are charged with illegally distributing prescription drugs, along with several counts of related fraud and illegal monetary transactions.

Did the Schneiders sell illegal drugs? No. They simply prescribed FDA-approved medications to people in pain. Now they face years in prison simply because the Justice Department disagrees with their medical judgments.

That's bad enough, but there's more . . .

While the Schneiders are charged with violating the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), the Schneiders didn't actually violate any specific provision in it. Instead, the Justice Department accuses the Schneiders of violating . . .
  • The policies of the Health Care Benefit Providers (HCBP's) whom they billed -- if true, then the HCBP's should sue the Schneiders in civil court.
  • Kansas state law  -- if true, then Kansas should prosecute them, not the federal government.
  • "Industry principles" -- but those "principles" aren't encoded in federal law, and if the Schneiders violated them, they should instead be investigated by medical licensing boards. 
  • The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code book, a "privately written, trademarked and copyrighted publication of a commercial affiliate of the American Medical Association."
The AMA, of course, is a private organization, and while the CPT is used by the government, it is not law.

It's important to recognize that Justice Department bureaucrats want to imprison the Schneiders because they disagree with the Schneider's medical judgments, NOT because the Schneider's broke the law. Mere bureaucrats are treating the guidelines of private organizations as if they were laws. Like a six year-old in a playground game, the bureaucrats are "making it up as they go along." 

This prosecution threatens all doctors -- and their patients, including you.

The Schneider's case, and others like it, will encourage doctors to let their patients suffer in agony rather than risk a prison sentence. But . . .

Under WTLA the Schneider's case would be dismissed, because the couple isn't being accused of violating any law enacted by Congress. According to the WTLA, this would constitute a complete defense. 

Thomas More is right: if the Devil breaks the law he should be prosecuted, but not before then. The same should go for doctors and everyone else. This is a fundamental principle of free society. Our constitution says that the only valid laws are those enacted by Congress, not those written by unelected bureaucrats or lifted from the guidelines of private organizations by tyrannical prosecutors.

Tell your Representative and Senators to introduce the "Write the Laws Act." In your personal comments, tell them about the Schneider case and how the Justice Department is treating AMA rules as if they had the force of law. Tell them the WTLA would prevent such a legal travesty from ever occurring again. You can send your message here.

Also, we're down to 4 days left in the month of June, and we need just $763 to earn the $3,600 in matching contributions and make budget for this month. We really need your help to make the goal by the deadline. You can contribute here.

Thank you for being a a part of the growing Downsize DC Army.

Better To Bless

There are those who would tell us
We will never fight enough wars to bring peace.
We will never feed enough hungry to end starvation.
We will never build enough living spaces to house the homeless.
We will never be outraged enough to end all atrocities.
We will never build enough jails to end crime.
And we will never make the earth green
enough to end global warming.
Maybe it's time to choose another way.

We believe there is a higher standard of living available to all of us and that it can only be attained through the raising of consciousness. Blessing those people and circumstances around us allows us to individually and collectively raise our consciousness to a higher level. By joining forces through the gentle process of blessing, we believe we have the capability to impact the world in a powerful and amazing way.

Only in the last couple of centuries have we come to understand that no matter how it might look and feel, our world is not the solid chunk of spinning rock it appears to be. It is, instead, made up of countless little particles of energy, all vibrating together and conforming to the dictates of our collective thought patterns. What we, as the human race, have thought, we have created. Whether we now judge this collective creation as good or bad will not change it one iota. It is our judgment of it, in fact, that keeps it exactly as it is. The only way to change it is to first release it from judgment and then collectively see it as we would have it be. Blessing allows us to do just that.

A blessing is a release from any perspective that limits us. While both spirituality and science agree with Shakespeare, that nothing is either good or bad but that thinking makes it so, most of us still tend to be labelers of the people and circumstances in our life, and it is in this labeling -- this judgment -- that our limiting perspectives are formed. Blessing releases us from the need to label and allows us to recognize the Divine contained in everyone and everything.

A blessing is also a choice. Though we are rarely aware of it, we are continually choosing between building up and tearing down. A blessing is a conscious choice to build up by raising the person or situation in our minds to a higher vibration, a vibration that is filled with light and love and healing. When we consciously choose to bless, we choose to construct, rather than destruct. We become architects and builders of Good.

With this simple premise in mind, we invite you to join us in our efforts. Beginning today, and for each of the next 30 days, we invite you to accept our: Blessing Way Challenge

Some Brain Surgeons Don't Hold Cell Phones To Their Brains

Some Brain Surgeons Don't Hold Cell Phones To Their Brains

Posted: 19 Jun 2008 11:13 AM CDT

Three prominent neurosurgeons declared on Larry King Live that they don't hold cell phones to their ears because they believe they're dangerous. So of course the New York Times came to the rescue of cell phone makers with an article containing mixed information, entirely watering down the message.

Even Senator Kennedy was recently diagnosed with a cancerous glioma, a tumor in the brain stem that is associated with cell phones.

Keep in mind that everything written in this post about cell phones applies to cordless home phones as well, because they use the same frequency and therefore cause the same damage:

"All modern (DECT) digital cordless phones emit the same type of pulsed microwave radiation (about 1.8 GHz) as ordinary (GSM) mobile phones."

Even though the brain surgeons quoted below were bold enough to speak out on CNN, they seem to be unaware that most headsets actually magnify the effects of cell phone radiation by causing it to travel up the wire and enter the brain in a concentrated amount in one small area.

Therefore it's important not to use an ordinary headset, but rather one designed to stop radiation from traveling up the cord, such as Blue Tube. A ferrite bead wrapped around the cord helps even further. The Cell Phone Protector, as small disc that sticks to the back of the phone, also works well at blocking radiation (I tested it, in addition to the fact that it has been independently tested and proven to work).

Here is a comprehensive, detailed and well-referenced article on the dangers of cell phones featuring 2 reports from The Lancet, a prestigious British medical journal:

If Mobile Phones Were a Type of Food, They Simply Would Not be Licensed

If you are concerned about your radiation exposure from cell phones, computers and x-rays, I take Modifilan and calcium bentonite clay, which are superior at safely removing radiation as well as heavy metals.

There are a few things from the NYT article below that objective research agrees with. Using the speaker phone as much as possible to avoid radiation exposure to the brain is a good idea. Also, one doctor below expresses concern for children using cell phones, and children's use of cell phones and wireless devices has indeed has been proven to be far more damaging than that of adults, due to their developing brains.

The following piece from the New York Times is nothing more than an attempt to support their advertisers...

Experts Revive Debate Over Cellphones and Cancer
By TARA PARKER-POPE

What do brain surgeons know about cellphone safety that the rest of us don't?

Last week, three prominent neurosurgeons told the CNN interviewer Larry King that they did not hold cellphones next to their ears. "I think the safe practice," said Dr. Keith Black, a surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, "is to use an earpiece so you keep the microwave antenna away from your brain."

Dr. Vini Khurana, an associate professor of neurosurgery at the Australian National University who is an outspoken critic of cellphones, said: "I use it on the speaker-phone mode. I do not hold it to my ear." And CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a neurosurgeon at Emory University Hospital, said that like Dr. Black he used an earpiece.

Along with Senator Edward M. Kennedy's recent diagnosis of a glioma, a type of tumor that critics have long associated with cellphone use, the doctors' remarks have helped reignite a long-simmering debate about cellphones and cancer.

That supposed link has been largely dismissed by many experts, including the American Cancer Society. The theory that cellphones cause brain tumors "defies credulity," said Dr. Eugene Flamm, chairman of neurosurgery at Montefiore Medical Center.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, three large epidemiology studies since 2000 have shown no harmful effects. CTIA — the Wireless Association, the leading industry trade group, said in a statement, "The overwhelming majority of studies that have been published in scientific journals around the globe show that wireless phones do not pose a health risk."


The F.D.A. notes, however, that the average period of phone use in the studies it cites was about three years, so the research doesn't answer questions about long-term exposures. Critics say many studies are flawed for that reason, and also because they do not distinguish between casual and heavy use.

Cellphones emit non-ionizing radiation, waves of energy that are too weak to break chemical bonds or to set off the DNA damage known to cause cancer. There is no known biological mechanism to explain how non-ionizing radiation might lead to cancer.

But researchers who have raised concerns say that just because science can't explain the mechanism doesn't mean one doesn't exist. Concerns have focused on the heat generated by cellphones and the fact that the radio frequencies are absorbed mostly by the head and neck. In recent studies that suggest a risk, the tumors tend to occur on the same side of the head where the patient typically holds the phone.

Like most research on the subject, the studies are observational, showing only an association between cellphone use and cancer, not a causal relationship. The most important of these studies is called Interphone, a vast research effort in 13 countries, including Canada, Israel and several in Europe.

Some of the research suggests a link between cellphone use and three types of tumors: glioma; cancer of the parotid, a salivary gland near the ear; and acoustic neuroma, a tumor that essentially occurs where the ear meets the brain. All these cancers are rare, so even if cellphone use does increase risk, the risk is still very low.

Last year, The American Journal of Epidemiology published data from Israel finding a 58 percent higher risk of parotid gland tumors among heavy cellphone users. Also last year, a Swedish analysis of 16 studies in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine showed a doubling of risk for acoustic neuroma and glioma after 10 years of heavy cellphone use.

"What we're seeing is suggestions in epidemiological studies that have looked at people using phones for 10 or more years," says Louis Slesin, editor of Microwave News, an industry publication that tracks the research. "There are some very disconcerting findings that suggest a problem, although it's much too early to reach a conclusive view."

Some doctors say the real concern is not older cellphone users, who began using phones as adults, but children who are beginning to use phones today and face a lifetime of exposure.

"More and more kids are using cellphones," said Dr. Paul J. Rosch, clinical professor of medicine and psychiatry at New York Medical College. "They may be much more affected. Their brains are growing rapidly, and their skulls are thinner."

For people who are concerned about any possible risk, a simple solution is to use a headset. Of course, that option isn't always convenient, and some critics have raised worries about wireless devices like the Bluetooth that essentially place a transmitter in the ear.

The fear is that even if the individual risk of using a cellphone is low, with three billion users worldwide, even a minuscule risk would translate into a major public health concern.


"We cannot say with any certainty that cellphones are either safe or not safe," Dr. Black said on CNN. "My concern is that with the widespread use of cellphones, the worst scenario would be that we get the definitive study 10 years from now, and we find out there is a correlation."

How to Heal the World

How to Heal the World

by Owen Waters


The Shift to the New Reality has been gaining speed for many
years. We have now entered a phase of The Shift which is now
bringing rapid transformation to our world.


Heart-centered consciousness is the gateway to spiritual
consciousness. Spiritually-minded people today are transforming
the world from material consciousness into heart and soul
consciousness. This transformation is best realized by using
intention to actively fill the world with love and light. This
spiritually-conditioned energy powerfully transforms the lower
energy of fear and hate within the global mind atmosphere.


The energy of transformation can be channeled into a spiritual
focus, into emotional release or it can be allowed to manifest
in the only remaining field of popular action, the physical
world. There, it will erupt through emotion-driven, physical
phenomena - volcanic eruption, earthquakes and violent storms,
for example. All of these "natural" disasters are driven by the
chaotic emotional energy of mankind. All of them can be healed
and prevented when people channel enough spiritual energy to
soothe the chaos.


Today, it is more important than ever to send healing energies
into the world. If enough people enter their inner, spiritual
space regularly, then the incoming energies of transformation
can be expressed on a spiritual level.


You can make all the difference in the world today when you
help balance the incoming energies of transformation by using
the following technique.


The Infinite Being Heal the World Technique:


Reconnect with your spiritual source daily. Use the Infinite
Being meditation, or your own meditation technique, the first
thing every day. Make it a habit, a part of your morning
routine.


End your meditation session by spending time in gratitude for
life, nature and the Infinite Being from which you
materialized. Let a sense of gratitude for everything in your
life fill your heart.


Then, intend world peace and enlightenment. Send this
intention out into the world as love energy through the heart
chakra just in front of your breastbone.


This alone would be enough to make a big difference in the
world today. However, by adding a third component to the
technique, it becomes enormously powerful and effective.


Powerful acts of creation all have three essential components
- intent, feeling and motion. Those are the only three tools
which Infinite Being used to create the universe and everything
within it. That's how powerful those three components are, when
used together in equal balance.


So far you have set the first component,


(1) Your intention - world peace and enlightenment.


You have also set the second component,


(2) A love-inspired environment - gratitude for the universe
and everything in your life.


Now, it's time for the third component,


(3) Action. It is time to move that energy, in large
quantities, into the global mind atmosphere surrounding the
Earth. This is how:


On every in-breath, imagine white light from the Cosmos
entering your crown chakra, above the head, and traveling down
your spine to the level of your heart, then traveling forward
into your heart chakra, just in front of your breastbone.


At the same time, see white light from the Earth entering the
base of your spine and traveling up the spine, then forward, to
merge with the cosmic energy in the heart chakra.


The energies of the Cosmos and the Earth will fuse together
and cause an energetic reaction at the frequency of the heart
chakra. This fusion forms a ball of energetic white light in
the heart chakra.


With every out-breath, send the power of this energetic
reaction out to the world. Direct it as a beam of white light
from your heart chakra, out into the world.


Continue this in-breath, out-breath cycle for at least five
minutes each morning and you will not only help heal the world,
you will change your entire day for the better.


The universe reflects who you are. When you practice healing
the world, by automatic reflection, you heal who you are. Any
and all issues which have been challenging for you will move
closer towards resolution as you help the world in this way.


There's nothing like starting your day helping to heal the
world in these critical days of transformation. It's one of
those things that brightens your day, makes you feel good to be
alive, and lets you know that you are taking the type of action
that you came into this life to perform.


*If you enjoyed today's article, forward it to a friend!
They will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

South Africa Bans AIDS Vitamin Trials

South Africa Bans AIDS Vitamin Trials

Posted: 15 Jun 2008 12:42 PM CDT

South Africa receives billions of dollars in US aid for the purpose of "treating" AIDS, and therefore a lot of money would be lost if word got around that nutritional products can actually cure AIDS, as opposed to AIDS drugs which have been proven not to lengthen lifespan.

South African President Thabo Mbeki has been saying publicly for years that AIDS patients need nutrition rather than pharmaceutical drugs. He has been highly criticized for this, of course, and as you'll read below, there is great resistance to this line of thought.

I have seen nutrition cure AIDS patients, but it needs to be high quality nutrition, including superior nutritional supplements such as U-Fn.

South African court bans AIDS vitamin trials
Fri 13 Jun 2008, 13:14 GMTcc

CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - A South African court on Friday issued an order banning unauthorised clinical trials of vitamin therapies for AIDS conducted by a team including a former adviser to President Thabo Mbeki.

The Cape High Court ruled against German physician Matthias Rath and U.S. doctor David Rasnick, a former member of Mbeki's AIDS advisory council, in response to a case brought by the lobby group Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) and the South African Medical Association (SAMA).

The two bodies accused Rath of conducting illegal clinical trials among poor blacks and profiteering by selling and distributing unregistered vitamin treatments among poor communities.

"It is declared that the clinical trials conducted in South Africa ... are unlawful," Cape High Court Judge Dumisani Zondi said in his ruling.

South Africa has one of the world's highest incidences of HIV, with an estimated 500,000 people infected each year. About 1,000 die every day from AIDS-related illnesses.

Rath and his Rath Foundation promote vitamin pills and micronutrients, mainly minerals such as iron or iodine, that they say can reverse the course of HIV/AIDS.

Critics say Rath's work has led to unnecessary deaths when HIV-positive people stopped using life-saving anti-retroviral drugs.

In court papers, TAC and SAMA accused the South African government of not doing enough to stop Rath and failing in its constitutional and statutory duty of care to the public.

Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang, who has herself courted controversy by advocating garlic and beetroot instead of anti-retroviral drugs, denied the allegations.

Tshabalala-Msimang and a senior Health Ministry official argued before the court that Rath's products were not really medicines but foodstuffs that were outside the Medicines Control Council's regulatory scope.

The court said on Friday that Rath and Rasnick, two of 12 people mentioned in the suit, would be prohibited from conducting unlawful clinical trials in South Africa or from publishing advertisements for their products.

Hopefully...

A few nights ago, Truth Brigade Radio interviewed Peter James, who is running for US Congress in Maryland on June 17th.

During the show, Christie (Truth Brigade's wonderful host) asked me to speak on some of the issues I cover.

I told the candidate that I believe food irradiation is one of the greatest threats to Americans at this time, and that I'm very concerned about the Codex Alimentarius which, if nothing is changed, will make effective nutritional products illegal beginning December 31, 2009.

Peter James took the Codex issue very seriously, especially when I explained that the founders of the Codex Alimentarius were convicted at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials for being Hiter's accomplices.

Peter says that if he is elected to Congress, he will invite me to speak there. I told him, "Only if I speak 'the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth' about fluoride, natural cures for cancer and AIDS, the pharmaceutical industry and Codex." I'll add vaccines to that list when the time comes.

I'm sure most of you are wondering why I would even consider speaking before the very people who are being paid to poison us to death, especially since I know about the New World Order and their goal of reducing the population by over 90%. Well, I feel that I would have blood on my hands if I refused such an opportunity, so we'll see what happens.

My general approach is that since I can't bring down the pharmaceutical cartel singlehandedly, I can at least make people aware of the truth so that one at a time, they step out of the deadly system and accept responsibility for their own health and recovery. This is something that is happening on a much greater level than I ever expected when I began this blog and my You Tube videos.

Peter James, by the way, is not your average politician. He supports Ron Paul and wants to restore the Constitution as well as eliminate the Federal Reserve. He is very aware of the real issues we are facing and is not just another pretty face chanting, "Yes we can!" and talking about "change" without giving one single example of what he'd like to change. Believe me, I will remind him of who I am if he's elected, until I really do go to Washington.

Most Americans are rallying behind members of the CFR rather than men of truth such as Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel and of course Ron Paul, who is the only one of them still in the running.

Did you know that Senator McCain is not the only Republican candidate running for president in '08? If elected, Congressman Ron Paul will restore the US Constitution and end the illegal war in Iraq, a country that never killed a single American until being invaded by it.

War is profitable for weapons dealers, some of whom are sitting in chief positions at the White House, which is a big part of why the US has been invading other countries over and over again.

If you've never heard of Ron Paul, you're not the only one. He has been purposely left out of debates and blacked out (and laughed at) by the media. NBC had actually scheduled him for a debate and then canceled him just days before it was scheduled to air, with no explanation. That's because the people who control them and pay them for advertising want it that way.

911 AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER

The medical industry is a big part of the New World Order's agenda to decrease the population and control those who survive. They are already doing it.

In the video below, Aaron Russo speaks to Alex Jones after learning from Nicholas Rockefeller that the private banking industry plans to implant everyone with microchips for the purpose of total population control.

Russo also talks about hearing plans to invade Afghanistan and Iraq for oil 11 months before 911.

The RFID chip made by VeriChip is already in new US passports and being implanted in children and Alzheimer's patients, despite the fact that it causes cancerous tumors in 10% of lab animals.

U.S. Government Sought Customer Book Purchasing Records from Amazon.com

Source: http://www.naturalnews.com/023388.html

(NaturalNews) Recently unsealed court records shed more light on the federal government's attempts to secure the online book purchase records of 24,000 Amazon.com customers.

In 2006, federal prosecutors investigating Robert D'Angelo, a Madison, WI official accused of fraud and tax evasion, subpoenaed online book retailer Amazon.com for transaction records on anyone who had purchased books from him through Amazon Marketplace since 1999. Prosecutors said they were hoping to find witnesses to testify against D'Angelo.

Amazon agreed to tell prosecutors what books D'Angelo had sold, but refused to turn over information on the buyers, citing its customers' First Amendment rights to privacy. The government came back with a request for only 120 customers, but Amazon still refused. The case went before U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephen Crocker, who ruled in June to strike down the subpoena on First Amendment grounds.

"The subpoena is troubling because it permits the government to peek into the reading habits of specific individuals without their knowledge or permission," Crocker wrote in his ruling. "It is an unsettling and un-American scenario to envision federal agents nosing through the reading lists of law-abiding citizens while hunting for evidence against somebody else."

Crocker also expressed concerns that allowing the government to pry into people's reading habits could function as intimidation, thereby depriving them of their right to read what they wish.

"The chilling effect on expressive e-commerce would frost keyboards across America," he wrote.

Under Crocker's urging, prosecutors reached a compromise with Amazon in which the company would send letters to the 24,000 customers sought in the initial subpoena, inviting them to contact prosecutors if they wished to testify.

Crocker also criticized prosecutors for seeking to force Amazon's hand rather than seeking a compromise on their own.

"If the government had been more diligent in looking for workarounds instead of baring its teeth when Amazon balked, it's probable that this entire First Amendment showdown could have been avoided," he said.
