Magnesium deficiency is one of the major contributors to cardiac arrhythmia, angina, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and sudden death from heart attack. Unfortunately, almost everyone is low in magnesium.
Magnesium is far more vital to our total health than anyone realizes. It is truly the mystery mineral! Our national magnesium deficiency came about because of badly depleted soils, the commercial food industry and overcooking of our foods.
A deficiency of magnesium is dangerous for the nervous system, heart and kidneys.
But there’s more danger to the body if your magnesium levels are low. The mineral is used by every organ in the body and especially by the heart, muscles and kidneys. Researchers have detected more than 3,751 magnesium-binding sites on human proteins. It is found in more than 300 different enzymes in the body.
There are some telltale signs of magnesium deficiency. They are:

There is government and there is us, and it seems that never the twain shall meet.
Government makes laws out of thin air. But those laws are meaningless without the consent of the people.
All too often people accept the laws even if they don’t like them, especially if government tells us they are for our own good. More often than not, laws passed “for our own good” are not good for us at all, but are good for government. They increase government power or they enrich the system, but they reduce our liberties.
Last week, I mentioned in “You are guilty!” that an unelected bureaucrat working for the Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) had taken it upon himself to write a “law” ostensibly making it illegal to carry a weapon in rest areas along Alabama’s highways and interstates. Signs then went up at all Alabama rest areas proclaiming that carrying a weapon into the rest area was unlawful and any “offender” would face fines and imprisonment.

Last week was a bad week for the Democratic front-runner. First, polls showed Hillary Clinton trailing possible Republican challengers in three key states. Next, surveys revealed — surprise, surprise! — that voters just don’t trust her. And finally, a new controversy erupted over classified material on her private email server.
Put it all together, and it’s no wonder she is plummeting in the polls.
The bad news began when the Quinnipiac University poll asked voters in Iowa, Virginia and Colorado to choose between Clinton and three possible Republican candidates: Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
The survey found her trailing the Republicans in all three states, with the gap most pronounced in Iowa and Colorado. In Iowa, she trailed Rubio by 8 points, with voters preferring Rubio by 44 percent to 36 percent, and she trailed Bush by 6 points, 42 percent to 36 percent.

Right now, the financial world is focused on the breathtaking stock market crash in China, but don’t forget to keep an eye on what is happening in Europe. Collectively, the European Union has a larger population than the United States, a larger economy than either the U.S. or China, and the banking system in Europe is the biggest on the planet by far. So what happens in Europe really matters, and at this point the European economy is absolutely primed for a meltdown. European debt levels have never been higher, European banks are absolutely loaded with non-performing loans and high-risk derivatives, and the unemployment rate in the eurozone is currently more than double the unemployment rate in the United States. In all the euphoria surrounding the “deal” that temporarily kept Greece in the eurozone, I think that people have forgotten that the economic and financial fundamentals in Europe have continued to deteriorate. Whether Greece ultimately leaves the eurozone or not, a great financial crisis is inevitably coming to Europe. It is just a matter of time.

Can you feel the panic in the air? CNN Money’s Fear & Greed Index measures the amount of fear in the financial world on a scale from 0 to 100. The closer it is to zero, the higher the level of fear. Last Monday, the index was sitting at a reading of 36. As I write this article, it has fallen to 7. The financial turmoil which began last week is threatening to turn into an avalanche. On Sunday night, we witnessed the second largest one day stock market collapse in China ever, and this pushed stocks all over the planet into the red. Meanwhile, the twin blades of an emerging market currency crisis and a commodity price crash are chewing up economies that are dependent on the export of natural resources all over the globe. For a long time, I have been warning about what would happen in the second half of 2015, and now it is here. The following is a summary of the financial carnage that we have seen over the past 24 hours…

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus wants GOP presidential hopefuls to pledge not to run third-party if they aren’t selected as the establishment’s presidential choice.
The Republican political establishment has been rocked by presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s unwillingness to toe the party line. It has also come as a surprise to members of the GOP machine that so many disaffected conservatives have delighted in Trump’s call for open season on RINOs.
According to a new CNN/ORC poll, 53 percent of Republican voters believe that Washington politicians are failing to represent their views. Among that majority of disgruntled GOP voters, 24 percent say they would vote for Trump. Following Trump’s first-place lead in support from the group is Jeb Bush, at 13 percent.
Among Republicans overall, Trump’s 18 percent favorability continues to give him a commanding lead over his fellow GOP contenders.

The conservative side of the political Internet — that is to say, the bigger, more vital, more well-read side — is about to meet its match, and its name is Al Sharpton.
Sharpton’s National Action Network has announced a new blog — The Shift Daily — that will take aim at conservatives who report on (and comment about) politics on the Web.
Clearly stung by the surfeit of writing about Sharpton’s tax woes, as well as his method of extracting donor funds by playing the race card against moneyed corporations, Sharpton and friends view their new project as a sort of online counterattack, one designed to win the hearts and minds of the millennial generation.
“Mainstream media only covers certain aspects of young people,” said Sharpton as he announced the new site.

Cybersecurity is currently a hot issue in Congress. Unfortunately, the lawmakers attempting to protect the nation’s computer networks often have little understanding of the technologies they’re writing laws about. That’s why a coalition of online privacy advocates is asking Americans to protest an upcoming cybersecurity vote using technology even the most elderly lawmaker can understand: via fax.
“Congress is stuck in 1984. It doesn’t seem to understand modern technology. So we’re going to communicate with it in a way it’ll understand: With faxes. Thousands and thousands of faxes,” said the coalition — representing the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for Democracy and Technology, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, The New America Foundation and others — on its website.
The groups hope that bombarding Capitol Hill with faxes will derail the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), which is scheduled for an upcoming vote in the Senate.

Having Bernie Sanders for a persistent, pesky adversary can force you into some pretty strange corners.
Why else would Hillary Clinton risk putting even greater distance between herself and the nation’s backbone — the working class — by conspicuously and suddenly embracing an enthusiastic, aggressive policy stance on green energy and climate change?
That’s what Fox News’ Chris Stirewalt wondered Monday, before concluding that Clinton — like some GOP establishment candidates for president in the current cycle — can’t completely abandon her lip service to the ideals of her party’s most fervent base.
“[E]ver branding oneself as to the left of Obama on global warming and as the candidate of solar subsidy is not a good move for a Democrat. But given her current electoral woes, Clinton may feel she has no choice,” wrote Stirewalt.

Few of us understand patient gradualism. We live and have our being within a few years and mostly in an unconscious automated state of mind.
But people in power are long-term planners. They absolutely understand human nature and how to channel it to the evolution and refinement of the authoritarian state.
Authoritarianism is based on long-term planning. Authoritarianism is a philosophy of collectivism. Some call it democracy. Some call it communism. Some call it fascism. Some call it National Socialism. But whatever you call it, it is all collectivism or authoritarianism; and in its ultimate form it is globalism.
The goal is perfect docility and perfect harmony with authoritarianism (economic, social and spiritual). Until the people accept collectivism under some pretext, they are not docile and completely subdued. Once they do, rebellion and confrontation are impossible. This is the ultimate goal of the globalists, and the American system is nearing this state.

There is very little that the entire world seems to agree upon, but there is one very frightening trend that is now taking hold literally all over the globe. A passionate hatred of Christianity is sweeping across the planet, and very few global leaders have been willing to step forward and speak out against this rising persecution of Christians. In many parts of the Middle East, Africa and Asia, believers are being relentlessly attacked by extremists, churches are being destroyed, and laws are being passed to try to prevent the spread of the Christian faith. In some areas, the violence has become so extreme that Christians knowingly risk their own lives just to go to church services each week. Would you risk your life to go to church? In North America and Europe, the persecution is often more subtle. Even though violent attacks are still fairly rare, Christian beliefs are being undermined by new laws, comedians and television shows regularly mock the Christian faith, and many employers will immediately mentally disqualify a potential candidate for a job if they discover that an individual is a Bible-believing Christian. Sadly, this is just the beginning. In the years ahead, those that choose to be followers of Jesus Christ will face even greater persecution than we have seen already.

Was last week a preview of things to come? There are quite a few people out there that believe that the stock market would begin to decline in July, and that appears to be precisely what is happening. Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by more than 530 points. It was the biggest one week decline that we have seen so far in 2015, and some are suggesting that this could only be just the beginning. By just about any measurement that you might want to use, the stock market is overvalued. But we have been in this bubble for so long that many people have come to believe that this is “the new normal”. In fact, earlier today someone that I know dropped me a line and suggested that our financial overlords may be able to use the tools at their disposal to get this current bubble to persist indefinitely. Unfortunately, the truth is that no financial bubble ever lasts forever, and right now some very alarming things are starting to happen behind the scenes. Over the past couple of weeks, the smart money has been dumping stocks like crazy, and the lack of liquidity in the bond markets is beginning to become acute. Could it be possible that another great financial crisis is just around the corner?

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), who’s also a U.S. Senator, is one of the key supporters of legislation calling for a nationwide hourly minimum wage of $15. But until that legislation passes, he’s free to keep paying his Senate interns $12 per hour.
Sanders recently introduced the “Pay Workers a Living Age Act,” a bill that would gradually increase the federal minimum wage to at least $15 per hour within five years of its becoming law.
But it’s hard to exemplify your ideals sometimes. In advertising to hire additional Senate interns this week, Sanders’ own web page offers a pay rate of $12 per hour – despite the fact that he is allowed to exercise his own discretion and pay them more.
Sanders, though, isn’t alone among Senate Democrats who pay their interns little or nothing. A 2013 report in The Atlantic found that Republican Senators, on the whole, outpaced their Democratic peers when it comes to compensating interns.

In the latest story about political correctness making people stupid, the Connecticut Democratic Party recently voted to rename its annual fundraising dinner to remove references to former Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson a couple of dead racists.
For nearly 70 years Democratic officials in the state gathered at an annual dinner named for Democratic Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. Later, according to the Hartford Courant, famed former party boss John Bailey’s name was added to the dinner.
But the Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner, as it is widely known, is now going to be renamed because party officials are convinced that is longtime moniker conjures images of the enslavement, whipping and raping of black people. (As opposed, I presume, to the favored imagery of Democratic fat cats gathering to plan how to best continue the vicious cycle of handout-driven poverty in the nation’s minority neighborhoods to ensure their voter rolls remain strong.)

Conservative talker Glenn Beck announced Wednesday that his program is no longer going to acknowledge the existence of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The decision follows an explosion of anti-Trump talk from the GOP political establishment. But despite efforts to shut him up, Trump is everywhere.
Here’s a rundown of the latest Trump news.
Big-wig GOP donors want other candidates to boycott Republican debates unless Trump is disqualified.
Via The New York Times:
Many national Republican officials are increasingly resigned to Mr. Trump’s looming presence. At a meeting of the Republican Governors Association this week in Aspen, Colo., donors and operatives mused about how to prevent him from hijacking the debate.

Even as news broke late last week that the government believes a bona fide criminal probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server is, at last, in order, The New York Times – one of the first to report on the topic – began revising its story to make Hillary appear somehow unconnected with the whole affair.
After originally reporting that two inspectors general had concluded Clinton’s handling of the private server – both while Secretary of State and afterward – warrants a criminal investigation, the Times massaged the language in its published story to make Hillary’s role appear much more passive and benign.
“The paper initially reported that two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation ‘into whether Hillary Rodham Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on a private email account she used as secretary of state,’” POLITICO’s Dylan Byers wrote Friday.

The American system of criminal justice is rightly named: It is criminal and run by criminals.
Is that hyperbole? Maybe. Maybe not.
America is a prison nation. One in 3 Americans will be arrested by the age of 23, many of them arrested on “crimes” including truancy and misbehaving in school. The faux war on drugs has ensnared millions of Americans for the non-crime of possessing parts of a plant.
America’s rate of incarceration exceeds that of South Africa and Iran. In America, people can be and have been arrested for taking raw milk across state lines, selling “unapproved” rabbits, growing pigs the wrong color, uprooting a plant on their own property or draining their own pond.

Could Donald Trump become the next Ross Perot? Right now, there is a push by Republican insiders to try to find a way to sabotage the Trump campaign and even potentially exclude him from future debates. These Republican operatives claim that he is “damaging the party”, but what they really mean by that is that he is playing havoc with their plans of getting Jeb Bush into the White House. You see, the truth is that most of the other Republican candidates are just there for window dressing. All of the big money is already lining up behind Jeb Bush, and his campaign recently announced that it has already raised 114 million dollars. Perhaps Scott Walker or Marco Rubio have an outside chance of contending with the Bush machine, but everyone else is just supposed to be cannon fodder and most of them know it. If everything goes to plan, Bush will clinch the nomination very early, and that is precisely the way that the Republican establishment wants it.

If you are looking for a “canary in a coal mine” type of warning for the entire global economy, you have a whole bunch to pick from right now. “Dr. Copper” just hit a six year low, Morgan Stanley is warning that this could be the worst oil price crash in 45 years, the Chinese economy is suddenly stalling out, and world trade is falling at the fastest pace that we have seen since the last financial crisis. In order not to see all of the signs that are pointing toward a global economic slowdown, you would have to be willingly blind. In recent months, I have been writing article after article detailing how the exact same patterns that happened just before the stock market crash of 2008 are playing out once again. We are watching a slow-motion train wreck unfold right before our eyes, and things are only going to get worse from here.
