FDA urged to approve aspartame as hidden additive in milk products

“The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition with the FDA asking the FDA to alter the definition of ‘milk’ to secretly include chemical sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose.  Importantly, none of these additives need to be listed on the label. They will simply be swept under the definition of ‘milk,’ so that when a company lists ‘milk’ on the label, it automatically includes aspartame or sucralose. And if you’re trying to avoid aspartame, you’ll have no way of doing so because it won’t be listed on the label.  This goes for milk, yogurt, cream, sour cream, eggnog, whipping cream and a total of 17 products.”

The remaining 35 allow it, under a variety of circumstances. Some allow unrestricted retail sales, others only through co-ops or herd-sharing plans.”

Getting the Best Rates on Currency Conversions

“Forex trading platforms allow you to convert and transfer your money for minimal charges and are perhaps the best way to do so.  You may want to consider Interactive Brokers as a forex platform (but do shop for other forex trading platforms in your jurisdiction). You can do all sorts of currency conversion with Interactive Brokers, and it has extremely competitive spreads. For certain currency conversions involving the US dollar, the spread can be smaller than 1 pip (1/10,000th of dollar or 0.01%). Moreover, you can execute limit orders.  These spreads are attractive considering most banks operate at a spread of about 2.5-3%.”

No felony charges for Seattle firefighters who beat homeless man

“The two firefighters were off-duty and accompanied by a woman when they became involved in a tussle at the Seattle Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Occidental Park.  According to Seattle police, the woman began yelling at the homeless man, who was sleeping on the memorial, and then kicked him. One of the firefighters hit the homeless man with a stick and the other firefighter joined in, police said. Police said it appeared that the firefighters and the woman were intoxicated.  Ian Goodhew, deputy chief of staff for King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg, said lack of cooperation from the alleged victim also played into the decision not to file felony charges against the firefighters.”

What Is at Stake in the BLM vs. Bundy Showdown

“We need to get beneath the surface. The real problem can be seen on the maps. The federal government exercises ownership over land that it should not own.  If the federal government auctioned off this land to the highest bidders, using the money exclusively for paying off the federal debt, the nation would be a lot better off. But the government refuses to do this.  My hope is that this showdown in Nevada will raise this question: ‘If a private owner controlled access to the land, would the Bundy family work out a deal?’ I think it would.  The BLM has lost the first round: in the media. It thought it could steal Bundy’s cattle and get away with it. The plan has backfired.”

Secret video footage proves cop lied about horrific accident

“Ted was driving down Rockaway Boulevard last week when he cruised through a green light at an intersection and crashed into an oncoming border patrol van that had made a left turn from the other side of the highway, according to ABC News.  It was an illegal left turn, according to a sign prohibiting left turns at that intersection. What’s more, the border cop had run a red light, according to video evidence.  The video footage shows that the crash was quite bad. Luckily, no one was badly hurt. Ted, however, was shaken, and immediately called the police.  The border patrol officer immediately began insisting that Ted had caused the accident.”

Conspiracy Theory Goes Mainstream With Wall Street’s Mark Gorton

the-daily-bell-top-logo61

“Everything, according to Gorton, has been an inside job. It is really something. The longest and most complete of Gorton’s essays is titled ‘Fifty Years of the Deep State.’ [..] Yesterday, we called Mark Gorton to ask him about the authenticity of these documents. After a long pause, he said that he was mulling over the ‘consequences for me’ if these documents came to light. Like what? ‘People killing me and my children,’ he said. ‘This has the potential to change my life.’ Gorton did confirm that he wrote the essays, though, which he described as works in progress.”

Evidence That Consolidated Global Power Is Wielded by a Tiny Elite

the-daily-bell-top-logo61

“For the past 12 years an elite cell at the US Treasury has been sharpening the tools of economic warfare, designing ways to bring almost any country to its knees without firing a shot. The strategy relies on hegemonic control over the global banking system, buttressed by a network of allies and the reluctant acquiescence of neutral states. Let us call this the Manhattan Project of the early 21st century. The stealth weapon is a ‘scarlet letter’, devised under Section 311 of the US Patriot Act. Once a bank is tainted in this way – accused of money-laundering or underwriting terrorist activities, a suitably loose offence – it becomes radioactive, caught in the ‘boa constrictor’s lethal embrace’.”

Cows shot from helicopters, mass graves constructed at Bundy Ranch

“It is now emerging that scores of Bundy’s cattle were abused and killed, with many being dumped into mass graves. This story was first revealed by 21stCenturyWire.com. This is on top of the tasering, beating, wrong arrests and threatening of citizens with attack dogs during last week’s standoff.  In all, some $3 million of taxpayer money was spent by the government to illegally steal those cattle, only to sell many of them across the Nevada state line in Utah and California, according to 21st Century Wire.  Here’s just one photo of the cattle slaughtered by the BLM.  The mass graves are being exhumed right this minute, and the findings are heartbreaking.”
