Agenda 21: The End Of Western Civilization: Part 3
Overview When public policy is made by elected officials who are accountable to the people who are governed, then government is truly empowered by the consent of the governed. Sustainable development has designed a process through which public policy is designed by professionals and bureaucrats, and implemented administratively, with only symbolic, if any, participation by elected officials. The professionals and bureaucrats who actually make the policies are not accountable to the people who are governed by them. Henry Lamb, Sovereignty International...[full story]

Red Tape Cut #1
Dear Prime Minister Harper,   If you are serious about cutting red tape, then we respectfully request that you eliminate the Natural Health Product Regulations.  These regulations (a) are doing what doesn’t need to be done, (b) are causing harm rather than preventing harm, (c) are in violation of the Constitution Act, 1867, and (d) have cost taxpayers an estimated $1 billion to date....[full story]

Pediatrician calls state trooper, child protective services on mother for refusing to vaccinate child
What would you do if your pediatrician called the cops and child protective services on you for refusing to get your child vaccinated? That is exactly what happened recently to Rachel Garmon of Pennsylvania when she told her new pediatrician that her healthy and vibrant two-and-a-half year old son had never been -- and never would be -- vaccinated. InfoWars reports that Garmon, a well-known member of her community and director of a sports and wellness program at a local community organization, had been having a reasonably pleasant interaction with her new pediatrician until the conversation moved on to the topic of vaccines. The pediatrician, Garmon did not name, apparently began to badger Garmon with typical pro-vaccine propaganda in an attempt to convince the mother to vaccinate her son....[full story]

Sec 105 of SOPA threatens freedom of health speech, aligns with FDA Trilateral Cooperation Charter to potentially eliminate access to dietary supplements
Identifying threats to health freedom and freedom of health speech often requires connecting the dots between seemingly unrelated verbiage in one piece of legislation and a trade agreement, for instance, or reading between the lines to identify the full intent or scope of a provision or phrase added to an unrelated bill. And this is the case with the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA), which contains language that could one day target websites that sell, promote, or otherwise talk about the benefits of dietary supplements....[full story]

EBR Comments - Ostrander Point Wind Energy Park Proposal
On behalf of National Audubon Society representing 456 active local chapters and 408,536 members, I thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Ostrander Point Wind Energy Park Proposal, a Class 4 Wind Facility with a total expected generation capacity of 22.5 megawatts (MW).  Audubon’s mission is to protect birds, other wildlife and their habitats, and our comments focus on the potential impacts to those. National Audubon strongly supports the development of clean alternative sources of energy, including wind power, when properly sited so as to minimize risks to birds and their essential habitat. The Ostrander Point project fails to meet the standard of being properly sited, imposing unnecessary risks to many species of birds and degrading one of the most important bird areas in the world. As a result, we are strongly opposed to the development of this specific project and ask that the Ministry turn down the application at this site....[full story]

Wind turbines blow down resale value of homes: Pedlar
GRAND BEND - If you can see a wind turbine from your window, chances are your house is going to sell for a lot less money than you want. That's the message Doug Pedlar, a real estate broker with ReMax in Grand Bend, brought to about 300 people in the village recently. Pedler talked with a number of real estate professionals across the province about the impact of industrial wind turbines on home sales and found studies about the subject from around the world. He says in general, the value of a home within view of the rotating blades takes longer to sell and could sell for 30 percent less than market value....[full story]

Wind power versus rural power
Sir: The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is calling on the provincial government to suspend the invasion of rural Ontario with industrial wind turbines.  Earlier this week, OFA took a hard look at our own concerns with wind turbines. We have always been concerned with the price paid for wind power and the fact that it is not dispatchable – it is not stored for use during peak demand periods, making it highly inefficient. This was noted by Ontario’s Auditor General in his annual report in December 2011.    ...[full story]

EPA drops jackboot on necks of couple for daring to build on their own land
Stories about overreach from Washington, D.C. abound, but just when you think you've heard them all comes yet another that makes you shake your head in disbelief and wonder just whom is supposed to be working for whom in this grand old Republic of ours. Taking into account that most of us want clean air, fresh water to drink and a sustainable environment - and that government has a role to play in ensuring these resources are preserved - there comes a point where that role grows well beyond its original intent and begins to infringe on the constitutional rights of the citizens. Just ask Mike and Chantell Sackett, who are battling the leviathan Environmental Protection Agency just to be able to build a home on land they bought years ago in Idaho. ...[full story]

Senator pushes for GMO labeling in Washington State
Regardless of whether the Republicans or Democrats occupy the White House, federal regulatory officials continue to disregard concerns about genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), and stonewall all efforts to mandate proper GMO labeling. As a result, individual states are having to craft their own GMO labeling legislation, including a new bill recently introduced in Washington State that would mandate GMO labeling beginning in 2014. The Epoch Times reports that Washington State Senator Maralyn Chase has sponsored a new bill that would require both raw GMOs and processed foods containing GMOs to be properly labeled beginning July 2014. Any food product containing GMOs will have to bear a list outlining which ingredients are natural and which ingredients are GMO. Several other GMO labeling bills have also been introduced in the state legislature....[full story]

Fact: 80 percent of U.S. pharmaceuticals made with overseas ingredients, nearly half produced in foreign facilities never inspected by FDA
Big Pharma advocates (the few that exist outside the corrupt government structure and the drug industry itself) regularly defend the industry with claims that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) maintains strict regulatory protocols that ensure safety. But a new report reveals that not only are most drug ingredients sourced from unregulated foreign sources, but nearly half of all drug production facilities are located overseas, most of which have never been inspected by FDA....[full story]

SOPA and PIPA bills could threaten natural health websites with government-ordered shutdown
On Wednesday, January 18, 2012, NaturalNews.com went "dark" to protest SOPA, the "Stop Online Piracy Act" that is actually a thinly-veiled government censorship effort. We are also protesting PIPA, the "Protect IP Act," which is similarly destructive in its effects. You may have arrived at this page from our mock "seizure" index page which depicts what might happen if SOPA becomes law....[full story]
