Low magnesium linked to heart disease, high blood pressure

Many people have strokes and heart attacks even though they have no high cholesterol and no high blood pressure. However, they do have nutritional deficiencies specific to the human heart.

In his book, “Holy Water, Sacred Oil; the Fountain of Youth,” C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.., explains how low magnesium levels affect our health:

As a single essential (heart and high blood pressure) nutrient, lack of magnesium may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient — our diet of white flour, white sugar and prescription drugs destroys magnesium. Magnesium is the most critical mineral required for the electrical stability of every cell in the body. With few exceptions, low or deficient DHEA magnesium is found in every illness. The majority of Americans lose 80-90% of their DHEA magnesium between the ages 30 and 80, accelerating the aging process. In perhaps no illness is magnesium deficiency more relevant than myocardial infarction (and high blood pressure) or acute heart attack and aging.

You will hear these lies as the economic collapse progresses

In the years since the derivatives disaster, there has been no end to the absurd and ludicrous propaganda coming out of mainstream financial outlets; and as the situation in markets becomes worse, the propaganda will only increase.

This might seem counterintuitive. You would think that the more obvious the economic collapse becomes, the more alternative analysts will be vindicated and the more awake and aware the average person will be. Not necessarily.

In fact, the mainstream spin machine is going into high speed as more negative data is exposed and absorbed into the markets. If you know history, then you know this is a common tactic by the establishment elite to string along the public with false hopes so that they do not prepare or take alternative measures while the system crumbles around their ears. At the onset of the Great Depression, the same strategies were used. Consider if you’ve heard similar quotes to these in the mainstream news over the past couple months:

Hillary’s desperate name-calling strategy

Just how desperate is Hillary Clinton’s campaign to change the focus of articles about her faltering campaign? For weeks now, the No. 1 topic has been the scandal about the private email server she used while she was secretary of state. How could they get the press to talk about something else?

Well, here’s an idea. How about comparing her potential Republican opponents to terrorists? Yeah, that’s the ticket. No doubt that’s why we heard the following from her, during a campaign appearance in Ohio last week:

Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups; we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States.

In The Month Of September 2015 We Officially Enter The Danger Zone

Earth Globe Planet Sky World - Public DomainIs September 2015 going to be one of the most important months in modern American history?  When I issued my first ever “red alert” for the last six months of 2015 back in June, I was particularly concerned with the months of September through December, and not just for economic reasons.  All of the intel that I have received is absolutely screaming that big trouble is ahead.  So enjoy these last few days of relative peace and quiet.  I mean that sincerely.  In fact, that is exactly what I have been doing – over the past week I have not posted many articles because I was spending time with family, friends and preparing for the national call to prayer on September 18th and 19th.   But now as we enter the chaotic month of September 2015 I have a feeling that there is going to be plenty for me to write about.

Why America Should Be On High Alert For A Major Earthquake Along The New Madrid Fault

New Madrid Fault Earthquake ZoneDid you know that a magnitude 3.5 earthquake hit the New Madrid fault about a week ago? According to Fox News, the New Madrid fault line is approximately twenty times larger than the San Andreas fault in California, and it is starting to wake up.  Most people don’t realize this, but this fault zone has produced some of the largest earthquakes in U.S. history.  In 1811 and 1812, immensely powerful earthquakes along the New Madrid fault rang church bells in Boston and permanently changed the course of the Mississippi River.  If we had similar earthquakes today, the devastation would be unimaginable.  Unfortunately for us, earthquake activity in the middle part of the country is becoming much more common.  The USGS says that the number of significant earthquakes in the middle part of the country has more than quintupled in recent years, and the USGS has publicly admitted that the New Madrid fault zone has the “potential for larger and more powerful quakes than previously thought“.  Very few Americans are talking about this right now, but as you will see below, the threat is very, very real.

ISIS embrace of gold could mean government will come for yours

The Islamic State terror organization has recently vowed to take down the U.S. financial system with the introduction of a new gold-based currency system that the jihadist group claims will undo “America’s capitalist financial system of enslavery.”

The terror group announced its war on the U.S. dollar in an hour-long video titled “The Rise of the Khilafah and the Return of the Gold Dinar,” which was released Saturday.

According to the video, ISIS leaders are working to produce gold dinar coins worth the equivalent of $139 and several other denominations of silver, gold and copper coinage marked with Islamic symbols.

The goal, the video said, is bringing down the U.S.’s “capitalist financial system of enslavement underpinned by a piece of paper called the Federal Reserve dollar note which they alone printed and imposed on the rest of the world.”

On NSA and Trump, Rand Paul isn’t afraid to battle giants

In what is perhaps an attempt to revive a GOP presidential campaign that many voters have forgotten about, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is increasing rhetoric about government surveillance, an issue that has made him popular among civil libertarians in the past. The Republican hopeful is also doubling down on condemnations of businessman Donald Trump, who continues to soak up the bulk of the presidential spotlight.

During a stop in Utah over the weekend, Paul visited the controversial National Security Agency data facility in Bluffdale to deliver a lofty promise.

“When I become President, we’ll convert it into a Constitutional Center to study the 4th Amendment! Bulk data collection must end,” Paul said during a photo op at the facility.

While it’s highly unlikely that the $1.5 billion NSA data hub is going to become a constitutional library anytime soon, Paul’s fight against the spy agency’s bulk data surveillance is nothing new.

Rocky Top embraces the gender-neutral PC madness

The University of Tennessee has become the latest public institution of higher learning to boldly step into the gender-neutral madness of political correctness.

Last week, Donna Braquet, the director for the Pride Center (UT’s official gay and lesbian outreach office), posted a set of online suggestions aimed at instructors, advising them not to “assume someone’s gender by their appearance, nor by what is listed on a roster or in student information systems.”

Braquet went further, suggesting that faculty drop altogether the use of gender-specific pronouns like “he” and “she” in favor of a word you may not have heard of: the supposedly gender-neutral, politically-correct pronoun “ze.”

Fortunately, the creators of “ze” burdened the word with the same set of declensional forms and word endings in order to show the word’s role in a sentence. That means you really have to learn this word in all its forms if you are, for some reason, serious about using it.

Illinois can’t pay its lottery winners

As former Democratic Rep. Barney Frank once famously said, “Government is simply the name we give to the things we choose to do together.”

But when it comes to playing (and winning) the lottery, the government in Illinois is sitting this one out.

Over the weekend, multiple new outlets began reporting that not-so-lucky big lottery winners in the Land of Lincoln are being told they have to wait if they want their payola. The state hasn’t arrived at a budget for the present fiscal year. And without one, nobody in government is allowed to cut the lottery winners their big checks.

“Without a state budget agreement two months into the new fiscal year, there’s no authority for the state comptroller to cut checks over $25,000. That means smaller winnings can be paid out, but not the larger lottery wins,” Time reported Saturday.

Are you ready for the next big crash?

Don’t worry. There won’t be a stock market crash. CNN told us so and even gave us five reasons to “remain (at least somewhat) bullish on the stock market.”

Great news. Someone — Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen? — has put the air back in the stock market balloon.

Even The Heritage Foundation chimed in. “Markets rise and fall all the time,” Heritage’s “expert” said of the recent carnage. “Monday’s drop is not all that unusual, and certainly not reason to panic.”

Of course, when the politicians, the talking head “experts” and the MSM tell you to not panic, it’s time to take notice … and likely time to panic, if you are like most people. Something bad is on the horizon.

So-called “experts” and the mainstream financial media claim they never see a crash coming. They are always “surprised” by bad economic news. And if it’s too “surprising,” they just manipulate the numbers after the fact to make them look better.

The GOP base is changing, and Trump’s the only one who gets it

A small handful of prominent pundits — and one politician — are beginning to grasp that the GOP establishment’s concept of its present-day party “base” is inaccurate, insulting and — most importantly — hopelessly disconnected from the emerging political reality.

Writing in The Wall Street Journal last week, Peggy Noonan gave one of the best mainstream articulations, so far, of how alien, untamable and unknowable are the tendencies of the newly emerging populist “base” to the established political class — and how fully, by contrast, Donald Trump has resonated with, and helped consolidate, that emergent zeitgeist.

“Here are some things I think are happening,” Noonan begins:

One is the deepening estrangement between the elites and the non-elites in America. This is the area in which Trumpism flourishes …

Second, Mr. Trump’s support is not limited to Republicans, not by any means.

Sanders to Democrats: Abandon the establishment or lose in 2016

Presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is urging Democrats to rebel against the establishment if they want a chance to win the White House in 2016.

According to a prepared speech reported by CNN, Sanders had planned to encourage attendees at the Democratic National Committee summer meeting in Minneapolis to increase pressure on the political establishment at all levels to cut ties with Wall Street and corporations.

“If Democrats want to keep the White House and recapture Congress and make gains in statehouses, then establishment politics won’t do it,” Sanders was to argue in the speech.

The message will certainly distance Sanders from Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, who also planned to attend the event and whose ties to Wall Street and big business are well reported.

A recent Forbes article that frames Sanders as a potential spoiler for the Democrats in 2016 highlights why the Vermont lawmaker’s establishment message could pose big problems for Clinton, even if she becomes the party nominee.

Bad medicine is killing Americans and making Big Pharma richer than ever

As pharmaceutical companies are rolling out new medications complete with glossy advertising campaigns more rapidly than ever before, the temptation for mainstream American medical practitioners to treat symptoms with pills rather than seeking legitimate cures for ills is increasing.

Also on the rise are the societal consequences of this bad medicine, which include rampant addiction and antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

Prescription pain pills are prescribed so often that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the nations’ medicine cabinets hold one bottle of opiates for every American adult.

With something like 16 million opiate prescriptions written by doctors each year, it’s not surprising that addiction and overdose associated painkiller abuse is on the rise. In fact, 46 people in the United States die each day as the result of those overdoses.

That’s why officials in states like New York and New Hampshire are putting into place initiatives to discourage doctors from overprescribing the medications.

In lieu of flowers, don’t vote for Hillary

A strange trend has begun emerging across the country in recent weeks. Some people, at the end of life, are beginning to share a common parting wish: that none of their friends and loved ones votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

First there was Larry Darrell Upright of North Carolina, whose family in April “respectfully ask[ed] that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016,” according to the gentleman’s obituary.

Then there was Elaine Fydrych of Gloucester Township, New Jersey, whose obituary ended with this: “Elaine requests, ‘In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton.’”

Now another person has included Hillary Clinton in his dying wish — and once again, he’s done so in a way that doesn’t offer Hillary much in the way of good PR.

Obama and the ‘crazies’

It appears President Barack Obama has returned from his latest party on the white millionaire’s playground of Martha’s Vineyard ready to roll up his sleeves and really buckle down on the business of America. And what was his first big action, post-vacay? More of the same juvenile blather we’ve come to expect from the thin-skinned chief executive.

Attending a party thrown by exceedingly controversial Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Obama recounted a limo ride with Reid, who oversaw the Democrats’ loss of the Senate majority, joking with the assembled Democrat deep-pockets of his plans to “deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems.” Obama was referring to opponents of his obscenely ill-advised deal allowing Iran’s islamofascists to continue their progress toward nuclear weapons without being bothered by those pesky types who think Iran + nukes = bad. The “crazies” slur comes on the heels of his disastrous speech in which he slandered opponents of the Iran sellout by claiming they make “common cause” with the psychos who think the Holocaust is a figment of humanity’s imagination.

Desperate Hillary Clinton calls Planned Parenthood critics ‘terrorists’

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lashed out against Republicans calling for the withdrawal of taxpayer support for Planned Parenthood in light of recent scandals involving the organization. Clinton equated GOP positions on women’s issued to those of “terrorist groups.”

“Extreme views about women, we expect them from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world,” she said during a Cleveland rally Thursday.

Clinton criticized her Republican rivals for pushing “out-of-date and out-of-touch policies.”

“They are dead wrong for 21st century America,” the former first lady said.

Clinton went on to attack specifically Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

“I would like these Republican candidates to look a mom in the eye who caught her breast cancer early because she was able to get a screening for cancer, or a teenager who didn’t get pregnant because she had access to contraception,” she later said.

Even the federal government has no idea how many agencies it has

If massive budget deficits and endless bureaucratic snafus weren’t enough to convince you government is too big, consider this: The ballooning size of federal government is so out of control that the Feds themselves don’t even know how many government agencies exist.

According to an analysis of official remarks in the twice annual “Unified Agenda of Federal Deregulatory and Regulatory Actions” by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the federal government is made up of somewhere between 60 and 430 separate agencies.

According to CEI, the “Unified Agenda,” a compilation of forthcoming federal regulatory proposals, lists 60 federal agencies. But that number doesn’t jive with the Administrative Conference of the United States’ “Sourcebook of United States Executive Agencies,” which lists 115 agencies in its appendix.

That publication, however, goes on to note that there is no official count of federal agencies, saying:

Holder’s private law firm ‘a shadow Justice Department’

A while back, someone casually asked former Attorney General Eric Holder if he’d accept a Supreme Court nomination, were President Obama to offer him one. Holder demurred, saying he planned to pursue his private-sector work at his old law firm, Washington, D.C.-based Covington & Burling.

But more information is coming out about Covington & Burling that suggests the high-level firm isn’t your normal private-sector stable of attorneys.

Vice News posted a lengthy feature this week on the law firm’s para-governmental activities, going so far as to call Covington & Burling a “Shadow Justice Department” for its revolving-door ties to the Department of Justice, as well as its apparent role in making sure the government doesn’t go too hard on alleged white-collar criminals.

“[T]he latest data from the DOJ reveals that criminal prosecutions for white-collar crimes are at a 20-year low,” Vice reports. “This decline and the rapid circulation of personnel between Covington and the DOJ has raised questions about the Obama administration’s handling of the banking industry and the 2008 financial crisis.”

Is Trump rethinking his GOP loyalty?

While Donald Trump has remained the lone Republican holdout in refusing to forswear a maverick third-party presidential bid, there may be signs that he’s finally ready to fully commit to a GOP-or-bust run at the White House.

The Huffington Post reports that Trump may already have made a pact with Republican leaders not to attempt an independent run if he fails to earn the party’s presidential nomination.

“Businessman Donald Trump has told several top Republicans that he will swear off the possibility of an independent bid and commit to running his presidential campaign under the party’s banner, according to several sources,” HuffPo wrote Wednesday.

Trump’s camp wouldn’t confirm that information, but a spokesman told the website that The Donald has never had “any intent” to run as an independent. That suggests that Trump’s holdout in committing not to run independently may have been a posturing tactic to persuade the Republican National Committee to treat him as a legitimate party candidate — something his staff asserts his campaign has now achieved.
