New Thought Police NewsGuard Is Owned by Big Pharma

Dr. Mercola, GuestWaking Times The media is using a variety of tactics to restrict your access to the truth from websites like mine, including NewsGuard, a self-appointed internet watchdog that sells a browser plugin to rate websites on nine criteria of credibility and transparency.

John W. Whitehead, RutherfordWaking Times “Pity the nation oh pity the peoplewho allow their rights to erodeand their freedoms to be washed away…”—Lawrence Ferlinghetti, poet And so it continues. This impeachment fiasco is merely the latest in a never-ending series of distractions, distortions, and political theater aimed at diverting the public’s attention from the sinister advances of the American Police State. Don’t allow yourselves to be distracted, diverted or mesmerized by the cheap theater tricks. This impeachment spectacle is Shakespearean in its scope: full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.…

Could Worms Be One Solution to the Plastic Problem?

Dr. Mercola, GuestWaking Times In 2013, the world produced 299 million tons of plastic, of which polystyrene — one brand name is Styrofoam — is one part. A report by the Worldwatch Institute showed that this number increased by 3.9% from the year before.

The Power of Intention in the Physical World

Jacob Devaney, GuestWaking Times The Power of Intention in the Physical World Can thought, intention, and emotion influence the physical world? Many people believe that they can, but scientific models for testing and quantifying this idea often fall short. Classical physics has been very successful at understanding the physical nature of the universe, yet this world-view assumes that reality is limited to matter. This leaves classical physics ill-equipped to measure or quantify non-physical phenomena. This has led to a movement towards post-material science. If you experience intuition and other non-physical phenomena, you will be…

The two nations de-escalated back down to their previous high level of dangerous hostilities with an understanding between them that neither side wants a full-scale…
