Statins Are the Greatest Medical Fraud of All Time: Study Reports |: A new study clarifies that statins are the greatest medical fraud of all time. The claims made for them are false. The amount of harm they do is staggering, resulting in millions of lives devastated and ended. The worst part of all, though, is that it was entirely predictable—but studies were designed to hide the truth. The media, the health agencies, and the doctors all provided cover for Big Pharma. After all, there was money to be made.
In the Whistleblower Chalet | Motherboard: "I met the whistleblowers in a peculiar location, an unassuming, identikit cluster of Dutch holiday chalets, contoured by optimistic spectrums of tulips and bursts of water fountains, thirty kilometers north of Amsterdam. We had come for OHM2013, an international hacker festival, where their attendance would help galvanize an army of hacktivists. Still, the battlefield looked like a pastoral idyll."

Why I Will Never, Ever, Go Back to the United States | Niels Gerson Lohman: "The first part of the trip, from Montreal to New York, is known to be one of the world's prettiest train routes.

On top of the envelope I filled in my migration form with utmost dedication. I love border crossings. Forms don't lie."

OpEdNews - Article: Stand Up Americans!:" In less than 2 days, if the Treasury secretary can be believed, the Treasury will not have enough money to pay all its bills and will have to prioritize. This doesn't mean default, as interest on Treasury bonds, notes, and bills will be right up there with the military and NSA. If Washington defaults on its bonds, Washington's power will be gone with the wind regardless of whether the Treasury pays the military."

'The bra is a security threat': Harassment and interrogation at Ben Gurion airport: I took a deep breath and looked around at my surroundings. I mostly kept tabs on the other people who I had been in line with. While most went through the baggage scan machine and straight to their ticket desks, the other members with yellow stickers on their luggage like myself had all been cleared after a 10-15 minute bag check with only one or two of their bags being searched. I was the only person left at the checking tables. The thin bald man in the suit came over once again.
