Well, perhaps, it’s time to accept that many of these communities aren’t going to lose core members regardless of how much science or evidence is poured on them. Instead, resources should go into thwarting their growth by targeting their potential—rather than existent—members.

Today, anyone who searches for “is global warming real” or “risks of vaccination” or “who caused 9/11?” on Google or Bing is just a few clicks away from joining one of such communities. Given that censorship of search engines is not an appealing or even particularly viable option, what can be done to ensure that users are made aware that all the pseudoscientific advice they are likely to encounter may not be backed by science?

The options aren’t many. One is to train our browsers to flag information that may be suspicious or disputed. Thus, every time a claim like “vaccination leads to autism” appears in our browser, that sentence would be marked in red—perhaps, also accompanied by a pop-up window advising us to check a more authoritative source.

Okay. It’s time somebody says it. Something seems very strange about the GOP primary pre-polling and vote thus far.

As a Ron Paul fan, I didn’t want to seem like a sore loser after the odd Iowa result where the failed no-name Senator, Rick Santorum, was catapulted to victory with very little tangible support.

But now, how on earth could Newt Gingrich win the South Carolina primary when the day before the vote he had to cancel a major campaign stop because of lack of attendance?

FOOD SAFETY NEWS

Salmonella Enteritidis infections centered in Texas and Oklahoma, but also spread over 8 other states, sickened 68 people who ate at a Mexican-style fast food restaurant chain in October and November, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday.

The CDC did not identify the restaurant chain, nor did it explain why it was reporting this outbreak for the first time now, nearly two months after it occurred. The investigation report was labeled “final update,” although it was also the first announcement of the multistate outbreak.

No specific food or ingredient was determined to be responsible for the illnesses. The CDC said investigators concluded that whatever the food source was, it likely was contaminated before it reached the fast-food restaurant outlets.

Unidentified Restaurants:

This isn’t the first time a CDC investigation report did not reveal the name of a restaurant chain associated with customer illnesses. In August, 2010, the federal public-health agency reported 155 people sick in two multistate outbreaks of Salmonella Hartford and Salmonella Baildon infections.

(NaturalNews) Did you know that wild rice isn’t really rice? It’s actually a type of grass seed. Did you know that many bottled, flavored “tea” beverages contain no tea at all? Or that soy protein is made using a highly explosive chemical solvent that can be used to manufacture bombs? These and hundreds of other amazing food facts are revealed in the new “Amazing Food Fact Machine” just launched by Natural News.

The Amazing Food Fact Machine is available now at: http://www.naturalnews.com/AmazingFoodFactMachine.asp

 
There, users can click the “Generate a new fact” button to see new facts appear, along with wise-cracking comments from a cartoon character (the “office guy”) sitting on a giant apple.

“It’s surprising how little people really know about the food they eat,” explained Mike Adams, the editor of Natural News. “In creating the Amazing Food Fact Machine, we wanted to give both children and adults a fun, educational way to learn some astonishing things about where food comes from, how it’s made and what’s missing from it by the time it gets to your dinner table.”

“This year we are witnessing not just a series of brutal but fundamentally independent human rights violations committed by disparate governments around the globe. This year we are witnessing something far more fundamental and far more dangerous. This year we are witnessing the orchestrated destruction by the United States of the very basis, the fragile scaffolding, upon which international human rights have been built, painstakingly, bit by bit by bit, since the end of World War II.” – William F. Schulz, former Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, speaking in 2003. (1).
There is a conspiracy of silence about the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, otherwise known as the “Indefinite Detention Bill.”

This treasonous violation of the rights of American citizens and all human beings on “Battlefield Earth” must be understood in the larger political and historical context of the American Deep State, which professor and author Peter Dale Scott says “refers to a parallel secret government, organized by the intelligence and security apparatus, financed by drugs, and engaging in illicit violence, to protect the status and interests of the military against threats from intellectuals, religious groups, and occasionally the constitutional government,” (2).

You’ve heard about the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex.

But there was another Japanese nuclear accident last year.

As I explained in March of last year:

The 6 problem reactors which have gotten all of the press are located within the Fukushima Daiichi complex.

However, the same nuclear power plant operator that runs the Daiichi complex – Tepco – runs a separate nuclear complex 7 miles away, called Fukushima Daini. There are 4 reactors located at the Daini complex.
On March 12th, Tepco reported:

It’s often said the ability to lie convincingly is a job prerequisite for modern presidents. If so, Newt Gingrich has the skill down pat, although he will never get anywhere near the White House.

Newt lied (again) about attending Bohemian Grove the other day. Fact is, Newt not only attended the “most faggy goddamn thing you could ever imagine,” as Nixon deemed it, he delivered a speech there.

Instead of admitting it, he told Luke Rudkowski he’s living in a fantasy world. See the video below.

Here’s a photo of a much younger and slimmer Newtster at the “faggy goddamn thing” along with Bush the Elder and his son, George the Lesser. The photo is from the Annals of the Bohemian Club, Volume 7, 1987-1996. An Infowars.com reader sent it along back in 2004.
