ID card idea attracts high-level support
Citizen, Can I See Your ID (VERY WORRISOME STUFF!)
What has not been explained to the American people is the reason why 35,000 Army Reservists and 65,000 National Guard have been called up. It is to maintain internal checkpoints. It has nothing to do with the external "War on Terrorism." All of these people are being trained at the US Army School of Urban Control at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. CNN actually showed an urban training mock-up, what they're training on, and what the new Internal Security checkpoint is going to look like. It was mighty sinister looking. CLIP
On this structure was a sign, which read, "All citizens not having proper identification will be detained. All foreign nationals will be detained. All citizens who are deemed to be acting in a suspicious manner will be detained." At each of these posts there will be six armed Army or National Guard reservists with M-16's with full field kit. On top of the structure to the rear, the open structure on top, there's a man with a machine gun emplacement.
There's a spot on the gate that goes across the road that they had x-ed out. But you could tell what it said because the sergeant alluded to it. It said, "All citizens are required to present their National Identification Cards." But they left it blank as a black spray-painted out spot because
the legislation for that hasn't happened yet. CLIP

Anthrax, Booming Cipro Sales, And The Bayer Company
Doctor Reports Anthrax Attacks Likely Cipro Sales Scam - FBI Alerted to Possible Bayer Company Terror Financing
(...) Given the Bayer Corporation's historic association with Third Reich financing, and the unprecedented FDA endorsement of Bayer's specious drug Cipro, Dr. Horowitz considers HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson's upcoming congressional request for $643 million for mostly Cipro, premature at best, and tragic at worst. Dr. Horowitz concluded, "I hate to think American taxpayers are funding their own demise. For all we know, those behind the recent anthrax attacks may be high level white-collar bioterrorist, profiting, as Bayer officials did during WWII, from terrorism blamed on one ethnic group."

Subject: Chemtrails & Colloidal Silver to prevent anthrax
Here is a well researched and enlightening article in Nexus online about Chemtrails, which can look a lot like clouds. The article explains a lot about the recent upsurge in illness, especially hacking coughs and respiratory infections that won't go away. If you feel skeptical, please read the article carefully before dismissing the idea.
This may prove to be newsworthy.
"There is no surge capability in the U.S. health care and public health systems, or the pharmaceutical and vaccine industries," officials concluded. Are there any answers to Anthrax spores?
A simple mineral called Colloidal Silver is reported to be effective in killing this bacteria even in very weak strengths! In an article written by Ward Dean MD October 2001 Vitamin Research News he states Silver in both liquid and airborne-aerosol has been known since 1887 to be extremely toxic to Anthrax spores. He goes on to say although there is no clearly defined dosage, but as safe as Silver is that it would be wise to err on the higher use side, and that there are no known pathogens which have demonstrated resistance to Silver. In the same issue another author states that colloidal silver has caused remission in both Hepatitis C and HIV Virus. Germs are often killed that are antibiotic resistant.
Now that anthrax is showing up in the mail how will any of us know we are even infected? We can't take antibiotics such as Doxycycline ahead of time to be prepared, but you can take colloidal silver safely each day and have it in your system in case you are infected without your knowledge. And that way it can be killing the anthrax right away, and of course other antibiotics or cures could also follow it up, if you found out you were infected

Subject: Got (genetically engineered) Milk?
A new e-book from Seven Stories Press
by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D.
GET THE FACTS ON WHAT'S IN YOUR MILK!
A powerful expose of the dangers of genetically engineered (r BGH) milk, and Monsanto's longstanding attempt to suppress this information
GOT (GENETICALLY ENGINEERED) MILK?
The Monsanto rBGH/BST Milk Wars Handbook
With an Introduction by Ben & Jerry and a
Foreword by John Hagelin, Ph.D.
rBGH (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone), is a genetically engineered (GE) potent variant of the natural growth hormone produced by cows. Manufactured by Monsanto, it is sold to dairy farmers under the trade name POSILAC. Injection of this GE hormone forces cows to increase their milk production by about 10%. Monsanto and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) insist that rBGH milk is indistinguishable from natural milk and safe to cows and consumers. However:
-rBGH makes cows sick. Monsanto has been forced to admit to about 20 veterinary health risks on its Posilac label including mastitis and udder inflammation.
-rBGH milk is contaminated by pus from mastitis induced by rBGH, and antibiotics used to treat the mastitis.
-rBGH milk is contaminated by the GE hormone which can be absorbed through the gut and induce immunological effects.
-rBGH milk is chemically and nutritionally very different from natural milk.
-rBGH milk is supercharged with high levels of a natural growth factor (IGF-1), excess levels of which have been incriminated as major causes of breast, colon, and prostate cancers.
-rBGH factory farms pose a major threat to the viability of small dairy farms. Thus, rBGH enriches Monsanto while posing risks but no benefits to the entire U.S. population.
The health hazards to animals, the detriment to small farms, the cover-up in Monsanto, all the negatives attached to rGBH are in no way balanced by any benefits of increased milk production in view of the national surplus.
Got (genetically engineered) Milk? is a unique resource manual on rBGH milk. It presents a comprehensive summary of the scientific literature since 1985, and Dr. Epstein's relatively inaccessible trail blazing scientific publications on rBGH over the last decade. These publications have played a major role in influencing foreign governments to ban rBGH milk. Got (genetically engineered) Milk? includes Dr. Samuel Epstein's press releases, editorials, and extensive correspondence with key members of Congress and the FDA. Got (genetically engineered) Milk? documents evidence of interlocking conflicts of interest between Monsanto and the White House, regulatory agencies, and medical institutions including the American Medical Association and American Cancer Society; Monsanto's white collar crime relating to suppression and manipulation of information on the veterinary and public health hazards of rBGH dairy products; and behind the scenes evidence of the Dairy Coalition's "hit squad", which targeted and attempted to stifle and discredit the author.
Of additional interest is the real story behind Fox Television's firing of Jane Akre, a veteran television reporter, following her extensive and in-depth interview with the author on rBGH, and also his involvement as the lead expert testifying on behalf of Jane in her subsequent successful litigation against Fox.
Got (genetically engineered) Milk? presents other valuable resource materials including listings of national and international anti-biotech public health, veterinary and animal rights activist groups, and of rBGH-free U.S. dairy producers, such as Horizon Organic and Swiss Valley Farms.
Of key interest is the book's critical relevance to the ongoing debate on GE foods, including irrefutable evidence discrediting the unpublished "trust us" safety assurances of Monsanto, and other GE food industries. Got (genetically engineered) Milk? thus makes it clear that Monsanto's highly deceptive track record on rBGH, compounded by FDA's complicity and refusal to label rBGH milk, more than justify dismissal its assurances of safety of GE foods.
Dr. Epstein is a multiple-award winning emeritus Professor of environmental medicine at the University of Illinois School of Public Health, Chicago, author of 260 scientific publications, and author or co-author of 10 books.

Subject: GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) LABELING UNDER ATTACK IN FAST TRACK!
Please take action on this urgent issue which among other things will make all GMO labeling illegal!
GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) LABELING UNDER ATTACK IN FAST TRACK! Call Congress TODAY -- Use the AFL-CIO toll-free number to call Congress 800-393-1082. See the bottom of this message for targeted legislators in your state and their zip codes.
Bill HR 3005 "Trade Promotion Authority" is currently being considered in the US House of Representatives. It is also known as Fast Track. Fast Track is Bad for Workers, Bad for Consumers, Bad for Family Farmers, Bad for the Environment! We need to have ALL our grassroots out in force calling people telling them to vote against this bill. A VOTE IN THE CONGRESS IS LIKELY IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS!
If passed, Fast Track would allow the President to negotiate trade pacts like the Free Trade Area of the Americas (NAFTA on steroids for the hemisphere) without any input from Congress. Congress would tie its own hands and would not be able to criticize the absence of labor, human rights or environmental provisions in the final pact! But if Fast Track fails, we have a good chance of stopping the FTAA!
Pro-GMO legislators have sneakily put in language in HR 3005 that would make GMO labeling ILLEGAL as well as eliminating the precautionary principle for GMO regulation. (The Democratic "alternative" to this bill, though better in some aspects, has the EXACT SAME LANGUAGE regarding GMOs.) If either bill passes, then the US would be able to force European countries to accept unlabeled US GMO products!
*****Please Take action Today on This Urgent Issue.*****
What can you do? Use the AFL-CIO toll-free number to call Congress 1-800-393-1082. You will have to enter a zip code.
1) If one of the targeted legislators listed at the end of message is your legislator, or you live in the same city/area, call them! These legislators support Fast Track HR 3005 or are undecided. Tell them you are a constituent (if you are) or that you live in their area. Tell them you oppose Fast Track and you want to know if they do too. MANY OF THESE PEOPLE ARE AMBITIOUS FOR HIGHER OFFICES LIKE SENATOR OR GOVERNOR. THAT IS WHY IT IS WORTHWHILE TO CALL IF THEY MAY REPRESENT YOU SOME DAY. The zip code that follows their name will enable you to be connected with their office in Washington, DC.
2) If your legislator does NOT appear on the list below, please call them using the toll-free number (use your home zip code), and when you talk to the receptionist, ask what is the representative's position on Fast Track HR 3005. Thank them for opposing Fast Track, or tell them you oppose it. In EITHER case, tell them that you do not support the section in HR 3005 and the Democratic alternative bill that would make a GMO label a trade barrier. Even people on our side need to hear that we don't want that provision in the two bills!
You can also send a message to Congress NOW by visiting
enter your zip code in the Take Action Now field.

Greenpeace Action Alert October 15, 2001
Urge Senate Majority Leader Daschle to Stand Strong and Resist the Bush Energy Agenda:
The heated debate on national energy policy has reached a low boil and has potential to erupt in the next few weeks. We should not allow this time of international conflict to provide a smoke screen for impractical decisions such as passing an irrational energy plan. The public should look skeptically at a plan that, in the name of addressing terrorism, will lock the United States into an increasingly vulnerable fossil fuel and nuclear dependant future. Over the next week, Senator Tom Daschle will be drafting a "balanced" energy plan that will eventually be brought up for a floor vote. Take action, fax your congressional representatives and Senator Daschle to make sure that America's energy future is one focused on safe renewable energy sources rather than fossil and nuclear fuels.

Subject: Fighting the Good Fight: Buy Nothing Day on November 23
Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2001
President Bush and other Western leaders are urging us to save our faltering economies by hitting the mall. San Francisco mayor Willie Brown's staff are distributing 15,000 posters featuring an American flag with shopping-bag handles (see below). Consumption is being cast as "fighting the good fight."
Let's get real. Yes it's a delicate moment. It's time to grieve, it's time to reflect. But it's certainly *not* time to stifle discussion and reverse progress on what, though it has been bumped from the news agenda, remains the world's biggest long-term problem: the unsustainable consumer binge of Western nations. In fact, now may be the time to take the sustainable consumption debate to a new plane.
November 23 is Buy Nothing Day. This year, celebrants in more than 50 countries will opt not to spend any money for 24 hours, but instead to enjoy pranks, parades, street parties, credit-card cutups - and some quiet time with family and friends. Why don't you join us?
Our website http://adbusters.org/campaigns/bnd/ is a font of information for BND enthusiasts. There you'll find posters, images, event ideas and contact information for organizers in your area.
We want to know what you're planning. Be sure to keep us up-to-date on your group's activities by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact us there if you need more information or assistance.
Remember: On November 23, don't let anyone call your efforts trivial or treasonous or unpatriotic. At a time like this, getting public attention back on the big picture may be the most charitable thing any of us can do.
Thanks, and Happy Buy Nothing Day.

I just found these articles you sent on Canola oil Jan 17, 2000.
Beware of Canola Oil
By Jim Lynn - Editor EOO
Canola Oil is an Industrial Oil Not Fit For Human Consumption.
(Reprinted from Essential Oils Online)
In the light of the need now more than ever for people to build strong immunity, toxins such as canola oil that weaken us must be avoided. I get a headache, weak, and ache all over if I consume even a small amount.
It is so hard to avoid. Food at my local health food store is prepared with canola oil.
I want to spread the word to people there are many things we can do to build immunity to things like anthrax. Here in Hawaii Dengue fever is present for the first time since the 40s.
Do you have updated sources for info on canola oil?
Thanks for your awesome work
NOTE FROM JEAN: I did not receive anything new recently about the effect of canola on health but got this last June about the effect of GMO canola on the environment.
WebPosted Fri Jun 22 2001
WINNIPEG - Western farmers are struggling with a new pest in their fields - a crop that was supposed to make their lives easier. Genetically modified (GM) canola is appearing in farmers' fields where it wasn't planted, and because the plant has been engineered to resist conventional herbicides, it's tough to kill. Agricultural scientists suspect that the plants spread through cattle manure. The seeds travel through an animal's digestive tract and are deposited on the soil, where they germinate. "The GM canola has, in fact, spread much more rapidly than we thought it would," said Martin Entz, a plant scientist at the University of Manitoba. "It's absolutely impossible to control." Ottawa approved GM canola in 1996, and at the time it did consider the possibility that it could become a weed. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency describes the current problem as "a nuisance" and has advised farmers to "use another chemical." But the alternative chemicals can kill farmers' intended crops, and in some cases, the GM canola appears to be resistant to the other chemicals.
Monsanto, which created on of the GM canola strains, says that if farmers' call the company, they'll send out a team to manually pull up the weeds. But Martin Phillipson, a University of Saskatchewan law professor, said that Monsanto may be liable for damages if their GM canola continues to spread.

Blessings for your inspired work which keeps us abreast of facts, but always reminds us of the crucial element: That we are Co-Creators with the Cosmic Force which created us and can choose to build a world based on love - a world where everyone shares now in the abundance of Divine Creation. Suzanne Phillips & A. J. Lewis, Ph.D, Carson, New Mexico
From Suzanne Phillips <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Re: World Bank's former Chief Economist William Stiglitz who resigned his post in dissent of the bank's policies which cause economic devastation around the world. (Big Brother10-15-01) At the end of his interview journalist Greg Palast concluded "the solution to world poverty and crisis is simple: remove the bloodsuckers."
To do this, it's necessary to understand how the bloodsuckers obtained their power. Herewith a brief description of how a cleverly devised banking system robs the average person of the right to a decent life while providing enormous wealth for its corporate owners and stockholders:
Henry Ford, Sr., staunch member of the United States' business community, once said "If the people of the nation understood our banking and monetary system, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."
How did such a system get started? How do they keep it going? In 1935 during the Great Depression, the Senate Committee on Banking and Currency questioned the role of money as a basic cause of nationwide bank failures. To explain the workings of our monetary system they called Robert Hemphill, a former credit manager of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Georgia. Hemphill told the august committee a fable - 'The Temple of the Thirteen Suns'.
The essence of this fable is that a rich man going on a journey wanted a way to pay expenses without having to haul his unwieldy supply of gold. The goldsmith agreed to store the gold at 10% interest and gave the traveler a receipt - an I.O.U. or letter of credit. After the traveler left, the goldsmith offered to lend this gold to any local merchant who would pledge all his possessions to him as security. In each case, the new borrower asked the goldsmith to keep the gold and give him a paper receipt. Thus the goldsmith still had all the gold - not to mention mortgages on the possessions of everyone who had borrowed from him! With each loan and payment of interest the goldsmith's fortune grew until he became the wealthier than everyone in town. Reflecting upon this state of affairs he said, "What a lead-pipe cinch! I can collect just as much usury on this phony money as on the real gold."
So began the banking business. Money is based on credit. To be used equitably, money must be issued and its value controlled by governments for the general welfare of the nation and its people.
There is no need for money to be created as interest-bearing notes. However, it's still being issued this way worldwide by private banks against the security of people's own personal wealth or the wealth of other nations. The 'money' you borrow from them is created 'out of thin air.' It's a piece of paper that indicates you have pledged your possessions in exchange for your promise to repay the lenders of this money - with interest!
The crucial point to understand is that the way money is created and issued determines the workings of the marketplace. Money issued at interest by private banks, such as the United States Federal Reserve Bank, brings with it an overwhelming debt which has devastating effects on its own people and around the world. In contrast, money issued by a government without interest would benefit everyone. Instead of creating artificial shortages and causing horrendous suffering, interest-free money would simply be a medium of exchange and could release the abundance of human production.
According to authors Fraser and Morse in Tomorrow's Money: "The money of modern civilization is credit.[which] represents real wealth (goods and services}. But -- all our credit-tokens have been issued at-interest or as debt-tokens. First we had goldsmiths issuing credit-at-interest money to individuals. Next we had private banks issuing credit-at-interest money to individuals and the State. Now we have a Credit-Cartel issuing credit-at-interest to the entire world. Today, our wealth - your credit, and mine and the Nation's - is monetized in this way." (1)
"In England the goldsmith's method of issuing money was legalized under the Bank Act of 1694. [British] William of Orange needed money and [the Rothschild family] offered King William their gold - $6,000,000 - at 8% if he would give them a charter for a bank. And Permit them to issue an equal amount in paper notes at interest to themselves!" (2)
What's the matter with private banks issuing the nation's money? "The interest system enables private corporations to regulate and control the Nation's money supply - for their benefit instead of Society's" (3) (Does this remind you of the 2001 scarce energy crisis in California which suddenly turned into a glut, or the way gasoline prices rise and fall at the will of the oil barons?)
Not only is the total debt from interest physically impossible to repay - especially if based on scarce precious metals - but "The interest tribute increases our taxes, lowers our buying power, depresses and oppresses the Nation's production and business.The power and privilege to issue and regulate money are Sovereign Rights. They belong to the Nation - to us - and have been usurped and stolen from the people and the Nation to whom they rightfully belong." (4)
The American colonies' 1776 War of Independence against Britain was largely an effort to break free from the financial stranglehold placed upon them by the Bank of England. Space doesn't permit details of the struggle between Jefferson and Madison on the people's side vs. Alexander Hamilton representing a privileged group desiring to start a similar bank in the American colonies. Hamilton won and the private Bank of United States was chartered in 1791. "In all transactions, the Nation was to be jointly responsible with the bank - but was not - to receive any of the bank's profit's. Many other benefits accrued to enrich the bank and its stockholders, including a comprehensive tax exemption." (5)
Many government and other leaders in the U.S. have understood the power that money issuance gives to those who control it.
* In 1787 John Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson "All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise not from defects in the Constitution, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as down-right ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation."
* President Abraham Lincoln: "By Government creation of money, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest." Lincoln tried to change the system by having the Treasury Department issue "Greenbacks" which were non-interest bearing notes. He was assassinated in 1865.
* President James A. Garfield: "Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce."
Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution states "The Congress shall have power to borrow money on the credit of the United States...and to coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin." But since the beginning of our country, bankers have been exercising de facto power in issuing the nation's money. In 1913, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act which consolidated the power to issue and regulate the nation's money and handed it over to the Federal Reserve Corporation, a consortium of private bankers. Understand that the Federal Reserve Bank is "federal" in name only.
* Congressman Charles A. Lindberg, Sr.: "This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Wilson] signs this bill the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized. The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill."
* Senator Louis T. McFadden (for 22 years Chairman of the U.S. Banking Currency Commission): "The Federal Reserve (privately owned banks) are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen."
The U.S. public, taught to believe that our money is based on gold, becomes alarmed when someone reports that gold is missing from the Treasury. This no longer matters. Our money hasn't been backed by gold since 1935 when the Roosevelt administration took us "off the gold standard". The paper money issued by the Federal Reserve Bank reads: 'THIS NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER FOR ALL DEBTS, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE.'
* President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order
11110 in 1963 giving the Treasury Department power to issue silver certificates as the base of U.S. money. Once sufficient silver certificates existed it would eliminate the demand for Federal Reserve notes. JFK was assassinated five months later. (See: http://www.rense.com/politics4/jflandfed.htm)
Others who championed the return of money issuance to the government included Congressmen Jerry Voorhis of California and Wright Patman of Ohio. These men understood what Mayer Anselm Rothschild, patriarch of the banking House of Rothschild, stated so clearly: "Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws"
Workers around the world have vastly increased their productivity, yet their standard of living has fallen drastically. How many people work two jobs to pay back money created 'out of thin air' using their own personal credit? How many millions in this country die premature deaths because 'there's no money' for food and doctor's bills? How many people in the 'Third World' starve to death because their countries are burdened with enormous debts to international bankers? (In mid-2001, foreign debt owed to Western bankers was $3,000,000,000,000 - three trillion dollars!)
Human corruption has devastated the Earth to the point where many experts fear it's impossible to restore a healthy environment. A change in consciousness is absolutely necessary. We need to stop exploiting each other. We need to act in a kindly and beneficial way toward the Earth and each other. Returning the power of issuing each nation's money to its own government is one step that will ease financial burdens and stop massive genocide against our fellow beings.
