This Is What One Drink Of Soda Does To Your Body

Coke is the most valuable brand in history, and “Coca-Cola” is the world’s second-most recognized word after “hello.” However, the beverage itself is like a poison to the human metabolism. Coke is very acidic, it’s only one point higher on the pH scale than battery acid. Consequently it can clean surfaces equivalent to and often better than many toxic household cleaners.

The Global Financial System Comes Unglued

The global financial system has come unglued.

You Might Not Know Where Chad Is, But the US Military Has Big Plans For It

Admit it. You don't know where Chad is. You know it's in Africa, of course. But beyond that? Maybe with a map of the continent and by some process of elimination you could come close. But you'd probably pick Sudan or maybe the Central African Republic. Here's a tip. In the future, choose that vast, arid swath of land just below Libya.

Why Do We Allow Ukraine’s Government to Write the Official Report on Their Shoot-Down of MH17?

There are only two suspects in the shoot-down of the MH17 Malaysian airliner over Ukraine on July 17th: the separatist rebels, whom the Ukrainian Government charge had shot it down mistaking it for one of the Ukrainian Air Force bombers that routinely drop bombs onto the separatists and their families and indiscriminately onto everyone else in that region; or otherwise the Ukrainian Air Force itself, as a means for President Obama to be able to win increased international sanctions against Russia for Russia’s support of those blamed rebels.

How The U.S. And Israel Support Al-Qaeda in South Syria

When the Obama administration said it bombed the "Khorasan group" in north Syria expertswondered what that meant. There was and is no such group. What the Obama administration called Khorasan group were leadership people of Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syria branch of al-Qaeda, which years ago had been active in Afghanistan and Pakistan before coming to Syria. So why make a distinction between Jabhat al-Nusra active all over Syria and a leadership group of Jabhat al-Nusra situated in north Syria?

They meet behind closed doors, at five-star hotels, where participants are encouraged to speak frankly – meaning “off the record” and away from the prying eyes and piercing ears of the public.

Abuse Victim : British Politician ‘Murdered’ Young Boy During Depraved Elite Party

The recent scandals emanating from Great Britain involving high level politicians, businessmen and celebrities (see Jimmy Savile) provide us a glimpse of the dark, twisted world of the occult elite. One of their favorite kinks : Preying innocent children, violating them in horrific ways and feeding on their youth as if it was a source of life force. These crimes are not the product of a few deviant individuals, they are the result of a high level and highly institutionalized group that was dubbed by the Westminster paedophile ring.

Have Central Banks Entered an Undeclared War?

"The Eurozone and the Pacific Rim now have a pair of regional wars being fought out primarily by financial and monetary means. We can infer that the major central banks won't be anywhere near as cooperative during a crisis as they were in 2008."

Obama extends deportation reprieve to 5 million undocumented immigrants

Obama announced his plan for unilateral action on immigration via a prime-time address from the White House. He will sign the executive order during a rally in Las Vegas on Friday. Because the plan will not be passed by Congress, it could also be easily reversed by a new president after Obama’s term runs out in just over two years.

Obama’s Plan for a Backdoor Internet Tax

It’s very possible, said FCC commissioner Mike O’Reilly at a conference sponsored by the Free State Foundation in Washington on Friday. The tax, which could total over $7 per month on the typical American’s broadband bill, would be imposed as a consequence of regulating the internet via “net neutrality” rules that President Obama has urged the FCC to adopt.

Paying Up: Payday Loans Prey On The Desperate

Payday lenders are able to profit off of the loans they provide by charging interest, which can get out of control. For example, “For a loan of $300, a typical borrower pays on average $775, with $475 going to pay interest and fees over an average borrowing cycle.” It was noted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland in 1999 that the loans have “annualized interest rates often ranging from 213 percent to 913 percent” or 4.4%-19% a week! Thus, while the interest rates might not seem ridiculous at first glance, they can easily grow out of control.

Obama to issue immigration order on Mexico’s ‘Revolution Day’

No doubt it’s just a quirk of the calendar, but President Obama is making his announcement to grant legal status for millions of illegal immigrants on Mexico’s “Revolution Day.” The president’s prime-time address Thursday coincides with the date in 1910 when the Mexican revolution began. The timing hasn’t escaped the notice of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, a group that opposes the president’s plan.

Wall Street is Taking Over America’s Pension Plans

Coverage of the midterm elections has, understandably, focused on the shift in political power from Democrats toward Republicans. But behind the scenes, another major story has been playing out. Wall Street spent upwards of $300M to influence the election results. And a key part of its agenda has been a plan to move more and more of the $3 trillion dollars in unguarded government pension funds into privately managed, high-fee investments — a shift that may well constitute the biggest financial story of our generation that you’ve never heard of.

Who Trusts This Government to Regulate the Internet?

The principle of net neutrality is easy to understand and support; to treat the delivery all data equally. This has been the status quo. Works great. Few oppose that, but supporting the principle of net neutrality is not the same thing as supporting the government's plan to enforce that principle.

How Police Use Military Tactics to Quash Dissent

As we wait for the grand jury verdict on whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown, schools in Ferguson are preparing to close, the police are stocked up on riot weapons and white supremacists are pledging to kill.

Protesters are organized and eschewing violence for clever forms of civil disobedience, but know they will likely face violence: Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has already declared a state of emergency in Ferguson.

Crime-Fighting Robots Go On Patrol In Silicon Valley

The security robots are autonomous, meaning they operate on their own. They don’t chase a bad guy down or make arrests. They are designed to avoid confrontations. When someone steps right in front of one, the robot will stop. Then it will redirect its path around the person. All the while, sending video inside to a control center where a human is monitoring.

This Is Why Police Shouldn’t Investigate Themselves

As a grand jury prepares to rule in Ferguson on the police officer who shot Michael Brown, it’s a good reminder that bad police officers across the country are routinely cleared of wrongdoing. The shooting of Michael Brown, as tragic as it is, isn’t unique; and if Officer Wilson is cleared of any wrongdoing, it will be far from the first time.

G 20 and BRICS Great Schism

Global trade relationships and agreements are moving in very different directions. The public relations press releases hide the undercurrents that are driving the formations of alternative economic alliances. While the G 20, markets its all inclusive umbrella policy forums, the mere formation of a BRICS counterweight forecasts deep and fundamental differences. So what is really behind the creation of a different approach to the post WWII dominate U.S. lead model? A clue can be found in an attempt to modify the operations and direction of IMF functions.

Tour the Destruction of a Ukrainian Battlefield Through the Eyes of a Drone

What follows is a surreal perspective into what the modern battlefields of Ukraine actually look like, from a drone's eye view. Bombed-out fields dotted with what appear to be fox holes and artillery explosions litter the grim landscape. The flatness of the Ukrainian plains brings to mind images of WWI, especially how the leafless trees and the dying grass mimic trench scenes from Belgium or France.

Fusion Centers are spying on innocent Americans & have virtually no oversight

The Government Accountability Office has come out with a new report that exposes the lack of accountability for use of federal funds at fusion centers. But it doesn’t address the most serious issue with fusion centers: that they’re yet another weapon in the government’s bloated surveillance arsenal—and there’s virtually no oversight for what they’re doing and how they may be violating peoples’ rights.
