Seymour Hersh challenges US version of events surrounding Assad 'chemical attack'

Legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh is challenging the Trump administration's version of events surrounding the April 4 "chemical weapons attack" on the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun  -  though Hersh had to find a publisher in Germany to get his information out.

In the Sunday edition of Die Welt, Hersh reports that his national security sources offered a distinctly different account, revealing President Trump rashly deciding to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles against a Syrian airbase on April 6 despite the absence of intelligence supporting his conclusion that the Syrian military was guilty.

Hersh draws on the kind of inside sources from whom he has earned longstanding trust to dispute that there ever was a "chemical weapons attack" and to assert that Trump was told that no evidence existed against the Syrian government but ordered "his generals" to "retaliate" anyway.

Life in the USA: Cops randomly stop, assault and search an innocent man before letting him go

Dev Sanders is a veteran who lives in Maryland and works for the state. But not even serving his country could have prepared him for the treatment he says he received at the hands of the United States Park Police.

Officers Keyes and Easter (Sanders claims) pulled him over on I-295 near the National Security Agency and told him he was stopped because he was following the car in front of him too closely. We at The Free Thought Project have published many stories indicating it's one of many excuses police will use to unlawfully stop someone, mostly in an attempt to see what's inside a car or fish for anything to use to extract revenue from a citizen or deprive them of freedom.

Sanders disputed their claims that he was following too closely, and cooperated with police up until the point that they wanted him to exit his vehicle so they could search it. He told them they had no probable cause to search his car and was not willing to allow them to do so. That didn't sit well with the Park Police who reported called him a "smartass."

Illegal GE bacteria resistant to antibiotics has been found in animal feed

It's the stuff of sci-fi nightmares - an illegal strain of genetically engineered bacteria has been detected in EU animal feed through a GMO vitamin.

Jonathan Landsman, PhD and Allison Wilson, PhD claim in a new report:



 Genetically engineered (GE) bacteria have been found in riboflavin vitamin supplements intended for animal feed use according to newly published EU tests.

Contamination of food grade or animal feed supplements with GE bacteria is illegal in the European Union. In 2014, however, a German enforcement laboratory alerted EU officials to illegal GE bacterial contamination of a riboflavin supplement intended for animal feed. Further tests showed that the illegal contaminating strain was not among those the manufacturer claimed to be using.

The findings, just published in the journal Food Chemistry, were made by regulators from Germany and Italy who were sampling Chinese imports (Paracchini et al., 2017).



 Similarly, a French testing laboratory found a riboflavin sample in 2015 contaminated with a probable identical bacterial strain also from China.

Official push to hide drug & vaccine side effects; reduce informed consent

In a disturbing turn of events, Big Pharma pushes to hijack informed consent by removing side effects from direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising.

Direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising (DTCPA) has exploded during the past several decades and is now the most prominent type of health communication the public encounters. DTCPA has been legal in the US since 1985, but exponentially expanded in 1997 when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) changed a rule that once forced drug companies to offer a detailed list of side-effects in their long format commercials. The impact was immediate. Spending by drug companies on TV ads hit $664 million within a year. By 2005, the industry was spending more than $3 billion annually on televised direct-to-consumer (DTC) ads. 2008 saw Big Pharma post just under $5 billion. Spending on DTCPA rose 9% to $5.6 billion in 2016 and expected to rise further in 2017. To date, the US and New Zealand are the only two countries that allow DTCPA.

In what appears to be a coordinated effort both the FDA and the UK's Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS) have each announced their intentions to hide or eliminate side effects from DTCPA and patient information leaflets (PIL). Lending credence to larger picture unfolding, both the FDA and the AMS announced their intentions to toy with further concealing drug and vaccine side effects on the same day [June 19].

Why migraine sufferers are sensitive to light

People experiencing migraines often avoid light and find relief in darkness. A new study led by researchers at Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has revealed a previously unknown connection between the light-sensitive nerve cells in the eye and centers in the brain that regulate mood and a host of physical parameters such as heart rate, shortness of breath, fatigue, congestion and nausea.

The findings, which explain how light can induce the negative emotions and unpleasant physical sensations that often accompany migraine, were published online in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Migraines are now recognized as a chronic disorder, not simply as a headache. A migraine can last for hours and is caused when arteries are inflamed due to the release of chemicals. These chemicals are released when you have an allergic reaction, stress, sleeping pattern, menstruation, menopause, and fasting.

The U.S. hypocrisy is limitless

Having ordered to attack the al-Shayrat air field near the western Syrian city of Homs, U.S. President Donald Trump knew that the Syrian government hadn't used any chemical weapons in Khan Shaykhun. At the same time the current U.S. administration was making every effort to develop an information campaign against Damascus.

This was reported by Die Welt am Sonntag, a German Sunday newspaper. US investigative journalist and political writer Seymour Hersh stressed that, actually, Syrian Air Force had targeted a two-story building, where extremists from various terrorist groups held meetings. According to Hersh, a bomb, dropped by the Syrian aircraft in Khan Shaykhun, caused a number of detonations. The explosion let to the formation of a cloud of noxious vapour. Washington was knowledgeable about that.

The attack became an ideal occasion for the U.S. further accusations against Damascus. After a short time, the world media started to spread staged footages and photos from Khan Shaykhun. Those materials showed injured people, who were allegedly dying in a suspected sarin chemical attack.

Permanent representatives of a number of Western countries to the UN also made every effort to put all responsibility for the incident on the Syrian government, headed by President Bashar Assad. Thus, Nikki R. Haley, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, at a Security Council meeting even showed photos, allegedly proving the 'crimes' of the Syrian authorities against Syrians.
