Bayer’s Stock Has Lost 44% of Its Value Since They Bought Monsanto

John Vibes | Waking Times

Bayer’s stock price fell to a seven year low this week, after the company lost a $2 billion lawsuit over claims that the weedkiller Roundup causes cancer. Roundup weedkiller is a product that was developed by the controversial biotech corporation Monsanto, but the company was purchased by Bayer for $66 Billion in 2016. Along with the acquisition of the extremely profitable company, Bayer has also inherited a long list of lawsuits and reputation problems.

Bayer’s stock has been in a freefall all year, as more bad news about Roundup reaches the public. The company’s stock is down by more than 44% since the acquisition of Monsanto.

Roundup contains a chemical called glyphosate, which has been shown in many studies to cause cancer. Despite these findings, the EPA has concluded that the chemical is safe, citing other contradictory studies. However, as an Intercept investigation revealed, the vast majority of those contradictory studies were commissioned by Monsanto. The data that the EPA was using to determine the safety of glyphosate was actually provided by Monsanto, which represents an obvious conflict of interest.

As the expenses from the Roundup lawsuits began to mount, Bayer shareholders began to question the wisdom of the Monsanto acquisition.

Earlier this year, Bayer shareholder Christian Strenger, filed a motion of no confidence in Bayer’s board complaining of negligence on the part of Bayer CEO Werner Baumann in the Monsanto acquisition.

Strenger pointed to the “almost complete failure to deliver the key objectives presented by Baumann in May 2016 for the Monsanto acquisition.”

“Mr. Baumann from Bayer always refers to 800 opinions that glyphosate is a safe product. But the big issue is how was it applied, and was it sold properly with sufficient warning signs. [Bayer] should have insisted. These were not military secrets. Bayer should have told Monsanto, ‘Either you get the DOJ to permit disclosure, or we’re not going to proceed with the transaction,‘” Strenger said, according to Fortune.

Strenger accused the decision-makers at Bayer of being “lenient with a proper analysis of the legal situation.”

SURPRISE YouTube Is In Major Pain After Censoring YouTubers!

By Luke Rudkowski | We Are Change

In the mainstream media’s ongoing efforts to control the publication of so-called “fake news,” Google and YouTube are just some of the companies which have been called upon to assist with policing social media. As with other companies, YouTube and Google use algorithms to do this kind of work, and certain websites which do not pass muster can get “demonetized.” This act of demonetization can cause great hardship on the YouTubers behind these websites.

The following video shows how YouTube’s efforts are not without consequences, as many of the demonetized websites have been so popular – apparently in many cases because the viewers see them as being more truthful than the mainstream alternatives – that YouTube’s revenues are suddenly down nearly 10% – which translates into $70 Billion in total losses for this huge company.

Amazon Joins Big Tech Assault on Anti-Vaccine Information

By Jason Erikson | Activist Post

 

As major media and big tech continue freaking out over 159 measles cases in the U.S., anti-vaccine campaigners are increasingly being likened to terrorists as their ability to share information and earn money is being cut off.

The origin of this latest move against the free flow of information seems to have stemmed from a letter sent by Adam Schiff (D-CA) to the heads of Facebook and Google wherein he lamented the increased viewership of the vaccine debate:

“There is strong evidence to suggest that at least part of the source of this trend is the degree to which medically inaccurate information about vaccines surface on the websites where many Americans get their information,” Schiff wrote in the letter. “The algorithms which power these services are not designed to distinguish quality information from misinformation or misleading information, and the consequences of that are particularly troubling for public health issues.” (Source: Bloomberg)

Facebook was the first to agree with Schiff’s call to action and vowed that they were “exploring additional measures” to fight the appearance of anti-vaccine messaging to the reading public.

But it was YouTube (Google) that appears to have taken the swiftest measures against anti-vaccine proponents by announcing that their two-pronged approach would include demonitizing videos with “dangerous and harmful” content, plus adding a stern warning from the World Health Organization that being anti-vaccine is “one of the top ten global health threats of 2019.”

In the true spirit of competition for which big tech company can foster the most censorship and destroy the key values of democracy, Amazon has followed suit by burning the digital books (videos) of those who have made it their life’s work to educate the public and spur debate. And, again, it seems that the public comments made by a single rep – Adam Schiff – have been enough to alter company policy which affects millions of people.

The move came days after a CNN Business report highlighted the anti-vaccine comment available on the site, and hours after Rep. Adam Schiff wrote an open letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, saying he is concerned “that Amazon is surfacing and recommending” anti-vaccination books and movies.

Anti-vaccine movies that were previously available free for Prime subscribers, like “We Don’t Vaccinate!,” “Shoot ‘Em Up: The Truth About Vaccines,” and “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe,” are now “currently unavailable.” (Source: Fox2now)

As the Fox report referenced above highlights, while some items have fully disappeared from “recommended” areas of the site, others do remain. Fox specifically cites one of the more egregious offenders still in front of the delicate eyes of viewers: “Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Summarized for Parents and Researchers.” Because why should anyone be encouraged to read primary research into the efficacy of something being injected into their own body and the bodies of their loved ones — it almost sounds like informed consent. It’s also a sign that Amazon holds its own core system of peer-to-peer reviews and recommendations in contempt as it resorts to algorithmic adjustments to hide the realities of real-world discussion.

Perhaps most troubling here is that this tactic, as well as the rhetoric being used, is straight out of the anti-terrorism lingo that we hear from the government and their revolving-door corporations like Facebook, Google, Amazon, et al. It’s the same strategy that has resulted in cutting off the funding of people from all walks of independent media for all types of different and “dangerous” thoughts that could “radicalize” the unsuspecting public.

Some still continue to argue that these are private companies with private policies that can do what they wish with their own businesses. That sounds true until a single U.S. representative sends a letter that changes the policies of multiple companies virtually overnight. And it sounds OK until an entire country revokes the visa of David Icke for his brand of “dangerous” information, which was assumed to include anti-vax and global warming questions, as Activist Post recently reported.

The virus-spreading anti-vaxxers — if that is what one chooses to believe — are no match for the infection that has spread like wildfire across our formerly free and open Internet. Perhaps we have given too much of ourselves to the middlemen of big tech and have forgotten the value of direct communication. Now is the time to remember how to communicate without the contrived structures of “social” systems of media, and without their approval.

Activists Unite in Houston to Save Independent Media in 2019

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gO9vWhfhvXM

By The Conscious Resistance

Derrick Broze talks with Jason Bassler, co-founder of The Free Thought Project, about ongoing censorship of alternative and independent media and the upcoming (January 12, 2019) United for Common Ground Summit in Houston, Texas.

Can the Independent media be saved in 2019?

The United for Common Ground Summit is the first attempt at bringing together digital activists, journalists, and influencers from around the United States and abroad for a one day event in the Houston, Texas. The independent, or “alternative”, media will partner with veteran activists to brainstorm solutions to combat the 2018 wave of social media censorship. This censorship by online platforms has greatly affected activists and independent journalists efforts to organize and spread awareness.

We seek to unify all truthful, anti-censorship, pro-peace journalists & activists that question the political establishment, both left and right, as well as the corporate media establishment. To be clear, this is not a conference or a festival, but a meeting of the minds to network, strategize and plan how to move forward in an era of social media censorship.

The United for Common Ground Summit was organized by Houston activist and radio show host Derrick Broze and Jason Bassler, co-founder of The Free Thought Project. 

“There has never been a better time for those of us in the alternative media community to put our heads together,” Bassler says. “Censorship is only getting worse but with the right coordination and strategy we can strike back and ensure a sustainable future free from establishment control.”

WHEN: January 12, 2019, 9 am to 4 pm at Talento Bilingüe de Houston (333 South Jensen Dr. Houston, Texas 77003)


The Conscious Resistance Network is an independent media organization focused on empowering individuals through education, philosophy, health, and community organizing. We work to create a world where corporate and state power does not rule over the lives of free human beings.

Canada Hate Crimes Up 47% As Muslims, Jews and Black People Targeted

The Guardian

  • Figures for 2017 mirror similar rise recorded in US
  • Hate crimes against Muslims double to 349

Hate crimes in Canada increased 47% in 2017, primarily targeting Muslims, Jews and black people, according to new figures released by the country’s statistical agency.

The biggest increase was in crimes targeting Muslims, Statistics Canada reported, in a year that saw a deadly mass shooting in a Quebec mosque, followed by a government motion to study Islamophobia that itself sparked anti-Muslim sentiment.

The spike mirrors an increase in hate crimes south of the border in the United States, where they rose in 2017 for the third consecutive year, according to the FBI.

“We were shocked by the numbers – and, at the same time, we weren’t,” said Ihsaan Gardee, the executive director of the National Council of Canadian Muslims. “This increase didn’t occur in a vacuum.”

Canada is not immune to rhetoric coming from the United States, said Amira Elghawaby, a board member of the Anti-Hate Network advocacy group.

Facebook is targeting what they deem “fake news” with third party verification, while in the EU the fascist oligarchy in the European Parliament has passed the Copyright Directive with Articles 11 and 13 which are targeted directly at free speech, which fortunately is protected in the United States by the Constitution, and on line by the Fair Use clause. But it’s clear that the NWO would like to kill the internet and cleanse it of free speech because they are losing badly in the public square of ideas.

5 Ways Essential Oil Can Clean Your Home Better Than Cleaning Products

Image Credit: Power Of Positivity

By Power Of Positivity

You may already be well-educated on the ways essential oils can benefit your health and mood. Those are not the only uses for essential oils. They are amazing tools to clean your home with. Boost the cleaning and deodorizing power of your homemade cleaners by adding essential oils.

There are many uses for an essential oil when cleaning your home. They can be used in any room of your home. They are non-toxic and all-natural, so you do not have to worry about your pets or children.

5 Genius Essential Oil Hacks to Clean Your Home

 

1. Make Laundry Fresher

Enhancing the scent of your laundry detergent or dryer sheets are great ways to use an essential oil. When you wash your baby’s clothes, add a few drops of lavender oil will help keep the baby calm and relaxed. Essential oils are non-toxic and all natural. They are better than commercially purchased scent boosting crystals or sheets, and the scent of essential oils last much longer.

2. Clean Carpets With Natural Ingredients

When it comes to your floors, especially carpeted surfaces, cleaning can be a serious chore. Smells get trapped in those surfaces. Just as easily, stains can take over and leave your carpet looking less than desirable. Hiring a cleaning company is extremely costly. Most commercial cleaning products contain many harmful chemicals. Your cleaning efforts may seem counterproductive when you use those types of cleaners to clean your carpet. You would be adding harmful chemicals to the world that is ruled by your pets and children.

If you want a more Earth-friendly way to clean your carpet, consider using a mix of baking soda and an essential oil. First, you should thoroughly vacuum your floor to remove any surface dirt. Next, mix together two cups of baking soda with ten drops of your favorite oil. You can combine oil fragrances as well like tea tree and lemongrass. Once you have created the perfect mixture for you, sprinkle it over the entire surface you wish to clean. Use a brush or sponge to make sure the mixture settles into your carpet. Leave it there for at least two hours then vacuum the area once again.

3. A Friendly Way to Disinfect

Disinfecting is a big job in your home. The kitchen and bathroom areas are highly susceptible to bacteria growth and spread. If you don’t properly clean these areas, you will risk making yourself or your family ill. The same goes for the bathroom toilet and sink areas. The bacteria found in these locations are grotesque. For a natural and fragrant way to clean these areas, look no further than these essential oil hacks. Many oils on their own do not offer the antibacterial power needed to kill everything on contact. Mixing a few together, however, can give you a real bang for your buck. Peppermint and tea tree oil are fantastic and smell very nice together. The same goes for tea tree and orange oils. A mixture of lavender and rosemary oils are absolutely divine. Add some lavender oil with lemongrass oil for a relaxing yet uplifting clean.

First Arrest Made in Explosive Package Investigation

By Tyler Durden | Anti-Media

Federal authorities arrested a man at approximately 10 a.m. Friday in connection with a spate of suspected explosive devices mailed to prominent Democrats and anti-Trump figures over the past week.

According to CNN, the man was arrested in the Miami, Florida area after discovering forensic evidence that led them to a packaging center, when then led them to the suspect – reportedly at a Plantation auto parts store in Broward County.

The Miami Herald, meanwhile, reports that the suspect is in his 50s and is from Aventura. He is being questioned by FBI agents along with the joint terrorism task force.

A law enforcement source tells the Miami Herald the arrest was made at an auto parts store in Plantation. Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reports a “loud explosion” was heard at the time of the arrest, possibly from an FBI flash bomb device. – Miami Herald

Department of Justice Director of Public Affairs, Sarah Igsur Flores, confirmed that one person is in custody. A press conference is scheduled for 2:30 pm ET.

The arrest follows the interception of two more suspicious packages Friday morning, addressed to New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and former National Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper which was also addressed to CNN – bringing the total number of mailings to 13, after New York police say an X-rayed package revealed an object which appeared to be a pipe bomb.

The device for Booker was addressed to his Camden, New Jersey office but was intercepted in Florida, while the device addressed to Clapper and CNN was found in a Manhattan post office, which was evacuated in response.

“At approximately 8:15 a.m. an alert postal worker who was aware of a series of suspected pipe bombs in packages going through the mail recognized a package that postal workers across the country had been warned about and shown photographs of in the system here at Radio City station,” said John Miller, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counterterrorism. “This area was secured while emergency service and the NYPD Bomb Squad responded. The package was isolated in the post office. The Bomb Squad was able to use their equipment to conduct an X-ray. Inside they saw what appears to be a pipe bomb consistent with other devices we’ve seen this week contained in a package consistent with the packaging we’ve seen this week.”

Clapper called the packages “domestic terrorism.”

“My wife and I are away from home right now. And our neighbors have been retrieving our mail. Been very concerned about them. So in one sense, it’s kind of a relief, but it’s not a surprise,” he said. “This is definitely domestic terrorism. No question about it in my mind.




Facebook Accused of ‘Full-Frontal Suppression of Dissent’ After Independent Media Swept Up in Mass Purge

“Those who demanded Facebook and other Silicon Valley giants censor political content—something they didn’t actually want to do—are finding that content that they themselves support and like end up being repressed,” noted The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald in response to Facebook’s announcement. “That’s what has happened to every censorship advocate in history.” (Photo: Legal Loop)

The massive shutdown affected many sites devoted to covering war, police brutality, and other issues neglected by the corporate media.

After Facebook announced on Thursday that it shut down and removed hundreds of pages and accounts that it vaguely accused of spreading “spam” and engaging in “inauthentic behavior,” some of the individuals and organizations caught up in the social media behemoth’s dragnet disputed accusations that they were violating the platform’s rules and raised alarm that Facebook is using its enormous power to silence independent political perspectives that run counter to the corporate media’s dominant narratives.

While it is reasonable to assume that some of the more than 800 total pages and accounts shut down by Facebook were engaged in overtly fraudulent behavior—such as the use of fake accounts and bots to generate ad revenue—numerous independent media outlets that cover a wide array of issues say they were swept up in the massive purge despite never using such tactics.

“Facebook has removed the pages of several police accountability/watchdog/critic groups, including Cop Block, the Free Thought Project, and Police the Police,” Washington Post journalist Radley Balko noted in a tweet following Facebook’s announcement. “They’ve also apparently severely restricted activity for the Photography Is Not a Crime page.”

Activist, comedian, and political commentator Lee Camp argued that Facebook’s purge is clear evidence that the “purging of anti-establishment thought is upon us” and described the account shutdowns as “full-frontal suppression of dissent.”

Speaking to journalist Alex Rubinstein after they found out Facebook shut down their pages—some of which had hundreds of thousands of followers—the founders of Police the Police, the Free Thought Project, and other now-shuttered pages denied Facebook’s hazy charge of “fraudulent” activity and accused the company of attempting to suppress dissenting voices that refuse to toe the corporate line.

“Our approach generally is to cover stories and angles that corporate media underreport or misreport and to amplify activist and anti-war voices and stories. All of our content is professionally fact-checked and edited,” said Nicholas Bernabe, founder of The Anti-Media, a self-described “anti-establishment” website whose Facebook page was shut down along with hundreds of others on Thursday. “I can only speculate that these suspensions were a coordinated effort to stifle our message ahead of the coming elections.”

While some of the pages Facebook removed on Thursday were affiliated with right-wing sites that were spreading patently false stories, censorship opponents have long warned of the “slippery slope” of empowering corporate giants to suppress certain kinds of content, given that the suppression almost always expands far beyond the original target.

“Those who demanded Facebook and other Silicon Valley giants censor political content—something they didn’t actually want to do—are finding that content that they themselves support and like end up being repressed,” noted The Intercept‘s Glenn Greenwald in response to Facebook’s announcement. “That’s what has happened to every censorship advocate in history.”

Though Facebook has yet to release a full list of the pages and accounts it removed, several individuals affected by the purge have taken to other social media platforms to denounce the social media giant for squashing pages that took years to develop.

School District to Begin Randomly Drug Testing High School Students

Carey Wedler | The Anti-Media

A school district in Clark County, Indiana, will soon be randomly drug testing students who want to participate in extracurricular activities like sports, band, and driving to school.

“Henryville High School and Borden High School will randomly select ten students each quarter and test them for ten drugs that teenagers are most likely to use,” local ABC 13 reported.

If students test positive, they will be ineligible for one-third of scheduled extracurricular activities after the first offense.

“After the third offense, the student will become ineligible for the rest of their high school career.”

While some parents support the new policy and hope it will discourage students from bringing drugs to school, others, like Lance Leach, feel it is too invasive. “There has to be a reasoning, and you have to talk to a parent beforehand,” he said. “Like suspicious behavior or they got caught doing something, then maybe, but not just random drug testing.

The ACLU agrees. The civil liberties organization has long fought against drug testing in schools. In 1998, the organization attempted to challenge drug testing for after school activities in Indiana schools, but the Supreme Court refused to hear their arguments. The following year, they challenged an Oklahoma school district, arguing in that case, the after school activities were directly linked with coursework throughout the normal day, and that drug testing infringed on students’ “right to a public education, as well as of the Fourth Amendment protection against illegal search and seizure,” the New York Times reported at the time.

Elon Musk Smokes Weed On Camera With Joe Rogan And Says He’s An Alien

Image Credit: The Mind Unleashed

 

By John Vibes | Activist Post

This Thursday night, famous inventor and entrepreneur Elon Musk appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast for a long interview where he was able to explore many of his favorite projects and ideas.

“When I watch you doing all these things, I’m like how does this m———– have all this time and all this energy and all these ideas, and then people just let him do these things?” Rogan asked.

“Because I’m an alien,” Musk replied.

Musk turned heads by accepting to hit a joint that was sparked by Rogan during the podcast, causing an uproar among some of his backers and handlers.

“Is that a joint, or is it a cigar?” Musk asked.

“It’s marijuana inside of tobacco,” Rogan replied, then asked if Musk had ever smoked.

“Yeah, I think I tried one once,” Musk said.

“You probably can’t because stockholders,” Rogan said, then asked if Elon would get in trouble if he smoked on camera.

“I mean it’s legal, right?” Musk replied, before accepting the joint.

Moments later, Musk’s phone started going off with angry associates.

“I’m getting text messages from friends saying, ‘What the hell are you doing smoking weed?’” he said.

Musk then quickly clarified that he was not “not a regular smoker of weed” and that he “doesn’t find it’s very good for productivity.”

“It’s like a cup of coffee in reverse,” he added.

Gene Munster, a managing partner at Loup Ventures and backer of Elon Musk’s projects expressed disappointment in an interview with CBS on Friday morning.

“Elon’s actions are making it harder and harder to support Tesla as a company. At the core, we believe he wants to prove his doubters wrong, but many of his actions strengthen the case against him. If he wanted to prove them wrong with actions he would delete Twitter, drop the Unsworth conversation, and not use recreational drugs in a public setting,” Munster said.

The 10 Primary Directives of Mainstream Media

Image Credit: Activist Post

By Sigmund Fraud | Activist Post

The circus never stops, and no matter who cries fake news against whom, the fact remains that we have entered the post-truth, post-credibility, post-sanity, post-free speech world. While censorship is coming out into the open, the major corporate news organizations still have tremendous reach into the hollows of public consciousness, giving them power to direct and deflect public attention onto or away from whatever they choose.

The news industry parrots scripted narratives and talking points that are written for them by corporate, financial and political interests. This massive public relations and propaganda effort targets the intelligence, common sense and emotional stability of the body politic. It’s part of the endgame of order out of chaos.

Once you wake up to this game, though, it’s easy to see the framework in which they operate; and when you do, the talking heads and recycled government experts are a joke, albeit a dangerous one. Their tactics become more and more obvious, and their intent is easy recognized for its duplicity, subterfuge and hypocrisy.

They want to cram your mind into well-crafted box. It doesn’t matter if you end up in the right side or the left side of the box, as long as you don’t leave and so long as you stay focused on the flickering lights of the flat screen, ignoring anything that is not directly in front of you.

Corporate media has become a weapon of war, and they follow a certain missive. Consider the following directives that drive nearly everything you seen in mainstream news.

1. Be Afraid, Not Empowered

2. Omit and Forget

3. Self-Destruction is Cool, Self-Awareness is a Crime

4. You are a Victim, The State is Your Savior

5. Overreact, Don’t Overthink

6. Enrage Don’t Engage

7.  Indulge, Don’t Conserve

8. Stoke Conflict, Ridicule Peace

9. Permanent War is Normal and Expected

10.  Panic, Don’t Prepare

Now that we’ve entered the age of open government-backed corporate censorship of the Internet, the mainstream media is actively seeking to shut down independent and dissident voices. In order to do so, they must engage in treachery of every form. If you believe that you have a right to the truth, a right to speak out, and a right to demand genuine peace and justice, then you’d better be paying attention.
