Do you think you are intelligent enough to decide for yourself the relative worth of scientific findings concerning the disease treatment and risk reduction effects of nutrients and foods? The FDA thinks you are not and that it must decide such questions for you in the first instance. Indeed, the FDA bans from the grocery store, the health food store, and online all commercial claims associating a food or nutrient with disease, regardless of whether the claims are supported by science. That broad prior restraint on speech contradicts the very premise of the First Amendment. As James Madison explained in defense of the First Amendment in his Virginia Resolutions aimed at challenging the Alien and Sedition Acts, while the law in Great Britain forbad prior restraints, the law of the United States as stated in the First Amendment went farther, forbidding the federal government not only from adopting prior restraints but also from banning speech after the fact....[full story]

Who Needs Healthy Food When We Can Eat Cash?
  The hazy, smoggy skies over Beijing during these March days are emblematic of the Codex meetings that the National Health Federation (NHF) has been attending for many days here in China. The Sun only shimmers as a strange, pale orange globe, casting an ethereal, almost futuristic “Bladerunner” look to the cityscape while city residents glide silently past with white face masks and we Codex delegates and staff work inside overheated rooms on international food-additive standards.  Given what has transpired, the setting seems apt....[full story]

"The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed." —Stephen Banta Balk if you wish, but the reality of being controlled by “outside forces” is very real. Indeed, some of those who believe in “mind control” are characterized as people who are immersed in “conspiracy theories” and there are those who are genuinely psychotically paranoid, clinically defined as “delusional.” However, the concept of exerting controls over the mind are exemplified by Descartes' "Cogito ergo sum," i.e. "I think therefore I am." To be human is to be a thinking being. If we are to survive as a nation you must recognize that it is thought itself that is the engine of society and this is why what we think is under siege. In effect, the palpable conflict we witness daily, external vs. internal (self control) mind control is the unrecognized source of the “culture wars” being waged for the minds and souls of ALL people. ...[full story]

Former United States Senator Russell B. Long (D-Louisiana) summed up the political sport of taxation this way: “Don’t tax you, don’t tax me, tax that fellow behind the tree.” Truth be told, the current IRS scandal whereby it violated the First Amendment and the Hatch Act by engaging in biased, viewpoint-based discrimination against Tea Party and Patriot non-profits, although reprehensible, is an old political story. By its very nature, progressive tax policy aims at discriminating against people based on wealth, affiliation, and status. To be sure, there is a difference between public adoption of discriminatory tax laws and non-public, political witch hunts performed by the IRS, but in the end the lesson to be learned is that events of this sort are not isolated but are routine in a state that is so large and taxes so much that it is perennially prone to abuse of power by political incumbents against political challengers....[full story]

THE WAY OF THE FORMER ROMAN EMPIRE IS THE WAY OF THE UNITED STATES The United States could correctly be likened to a huge glacier that has – through the years of its being – run a broad and seemingly non interruptible course through the world panorama, a course that emphasized its power and magnificence and illumined a connected series of divinely enhanced events, actions and developments throughout its diachronic existence. Unfortunately there has also been concomitantly a broad and morality dissipating U.S. national progression that has extraordinarily eroded its base and shorn from it the last steadying vestiges of the anchoring social and spiritual appendages that brought it into being and helped greatly to steady the journey and to stabilize the course of the whole of the mass....[full story]

The current debate about gun control, the effectiveness of the war on drugs, much, in fact, of the big debates that take place throughout American culture have their roots in pre-Civil War debates about execution. So says author Stephen John Hartnett, who's the author of the book Executing Democracy: Capital Punishment and the Making of America.

The title of today’s column, “There Is A Conspiracy,” is a direct quote from Ezekiel 22:25. In this passage, God instructed Ezekiel to blow the whistle on the conspiracy of Israel’s prophets to deny people truth, to devour people’s souls, to defraud people’s substance, and to destroy people’s lives. I dare say this conspiracy is still alive and well today. Many pastors and religious leaders in 2013 America are as guilty of Ezekiel’s charges as were Israel’s ancient prophets....[full story]

Evidence suggests that up to 90 percent of landmark cancer research may be false
The vast majority of the published scientific literature on cancer and cancer research is inherently flawed and non-reproducible, reveals a new review published online in the journal Nature. Researchers C. Glenn Begley and Lee Ellis found that a mere 11 percent of 53 papers on cancer published in reputable, peer-reviewed journals was solid, while the other 89 percent could not be reproduced, implying that it may be false or at the very least misleading....[full story]
