Reality is disproving the media’s narrative of division
As the spirit of unity fuels the process to rescue the citizens of Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the rest of America continues to be torn apart by rhetoric from the left.
The exploits, which affect several pacemakers built by Abbott Laboratories, allow an attacker to issue commands to the device after compromising its authentication algorithm.
“Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow a nearby attacker to gain unauthorized access to a pacemaker and issue commands, change settings, or otherwise interfere with the intended function of the pacemaker,” an ICS-CERT advisory said.
The vulnerable pacemakers and CRT-P devices from Abbott Laboratories, formerly known as St. Jude Medical, include the Accent, Anthem, Accent MRI, Accent ST, Assurity and Allure.
Applied to the device’s firmware, the update “requires an in-person patient visit with a health care provider.”
“The update process will take approximately 3 minutes to complete,” the FDA said. “During this time, the device will operate in backup mode (pacing at 67 beats per minute), and essential, life-sustaining features will remain available. At the completion of the update, the device will return to its pre-update settings.”
The FDA argued that despite the small risk associated with internet-connected devices, technological advancements in medical devices “also often offer safer, more efficient, convenient, and timely health care delivery.”
Abbott Laboratories previously recalled 400,000 heart devices in 2016 after a battery issue resulted in two deaths in Europe.

Gorka said Ryan (R-Wis.) and McConnell (R-Ky.) are living in a “fantasy illusion” and have failed on promises made to the American people, most notably on repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
“I don’t think [Ryan and McConnell] are working against [Trump], but they’re definitely not working with him,” said Gorka, who left the White House on Friday, one week after the dismissal of his ally, White House strategist Stephen Bannon.
“We are working closely with the fleet to develop this important new capability, and this was a key milestone in giving our Aegis ships an enhanced capability to defeat ballistic missiles in their terminal phase,” said MDA Director Lt. Gen. Sam Greaves. “We will continue developing ballistic missile defense technologies to stay ahead of the threat as it evolves.”
The drill suggests that a Navy destroyer in the Sea of Japan could potentially knock down a North Korean missile, an increasingly likely scenario after North Korea fired a KN-17 missile over Japan on Saturday.
In response, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered 1500 Russians near the North Korea border to evacuate as military action against North Korea becomes plausible.
“The surprise move comes after President Donald Trump warned ‘all options are on the table’ in terms of a U.S. response to the missile launch,” Newsmax reported. “Trump said North Korea has ‘signaled its contempt for its neighbors, for all members of the United Nations, and for minimum standards of acceptable international behavior.’”
The petition can be found HERE and reads as follows:
FBI records section chief David M. Hardy told investigator Ty Clevenger that he did sufficiently demonstrate that the public’s interest in disclosing (Hillary’s FBI records relating to her personal secret server email investigation) outweighed her personal privacy interests. This petition will show the Executive branch that there is sufficient public interest in releasing all FBI records pertaining to this case. Hillary Clinton was shielded by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey during the email “investigation”. Hillary has continued to echo Russian interference in the 2016 election and releasing these records should help clear the air on this matter. President Trump should compel the FBI to release to the public all records related to this investigation.
The petition has already garnered over 3,000 signatures in its first day, at the time of this writing, and must reach 100,000 by September 28th to be entered into consideration by the federal government.
On August 28th, investigator and attorney Ty Clevenger received a letter from David Hardy, a DOJ Section Chief, informing him that his FOIA request had been shot down.
“This is in response to your additional correspondence dated August 11, 2017, in which you ask the FBI to reconsider your request for public interest, we have determined you have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject,” wrote Hardy. “In the absence of a privacy waiver or proof of death, it is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.”
In response, a shocked Clevenger has accused the FBI of “protecting” Clinton, also offering his opinion that the agency may as well still be under the oversight of the prior administration or that Clinton herself.
“I’m just stunned. This is exactly what I would have expected had Mrs. Clinton won the election, but she didn’t. It looks like the Obama administration is still running the FBI,” he said in comments to the Washington Times. “How can a story receive national news coverage and not be a matter of public interest? If this is the new standard, then there’s no such thing as a public interest exception.”
Clevenger’s FOIA request, which was filed on March 7, 2016, and can be read in full HERE, was initially delayed on August 8 by Hardy, who demanded Clevenger produce additional supporting information to compel the release of the requested documents and communications.
“Last week the FBI informed me that it had not released records pertaining to my Freedom of Information Act request about the Hillary Clinton email investigation because of concerns for her privacy rights. I kid you not,” Clevenger wrote in an article on his website at the time. “It looks like Mrs. Clinton is being protected from every angle.”
It is therefore crucial that the public use the aforementioned petition to properly demonstrate their overwhelming interest in the release of these files on Hillary Clinton to Attorney Clevenger, which could potentially lead to answers to questions that continue to haunt the nation – and possibly new discoveries.

Armstrong is known for successfully predicting the 1987 Black Monday crash as well as the 1998 Russian financial collapse.
He also accurately predicted a political uprising against the status quo in America two years before Donald Trump was elected.
“There are always people within a government who would assassinate him if he appeared weak. Such is the fate of dictators.”
Armstrong cites September 11-12 as the key “window for a conflict on our war model with North Korea.”
“We must be on guard for this is the prime period where a confrontation could emerge,” he concludes.
In response to North Korea’s latest provocation, Russia has reportedly ordered a mass evacuation of 1,500 people from its border with the Stalinist state.
The test of an upgraded B61 nuclear bomb in the Nevada desert could also “mean that the United States is preparing for war,” according to military analyst Oleg Glazunov.
Meanwhile, Alt-Market.com’s Brandon Smith thinks the way the media is treating the situation is ominous.
“The mainstream media has instead been going out of its way to downplay any chance that the current inflamed rhetoric on both sides of the Pacific is anything other than bluster that will end with a whimper rather than bomb blasts,” writes Smith.
“This is one of the reasons why I think war is imminent; the media is a notorious contrarian indicator. Whatever they predict is usually the opposite of what comes true (just look at Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, for starters). Another generalization that is a sure bet is that the mainstream media usually lies, or at the very least, they are mostly wrong.”

In Italy, millions of Italians have been demonstrating since June, protesting the infringements to parental rights.
On July 28, industry-beholden Italian legislators voted 296-92 to pass a one-size-fits-all law that mandates multiple doses of ten vaccines for preschoolers through teenagers, imposing steep fines for parents who do not comply.
Why Italy? And why now? Italy’s pharmaceutical sector is one of the largest in the world.
Vaccines are big business, and the new vaccine mandate ensures the continued flow of profits to the $32 billion industry despite steady erosion of public confidence in vaccine safety.
A recent survey found widespread doubts among Italian and French citizens about the importance and safety of vaccines. A cascade of recent scientific studies have described the emergence of new vaccine-related autoimmune illnesses and the inferior health status of vaccinated compared to unvaccinated children.
Furthermore, a slate of films, news reports and government investigations have exposed widespread corruption among vaccine regulators, government efforts to hide serious vaccine-related adverse reactions and intimidation of scientists who publish data contrary to the orthodoxy that all vaccines are always safe for all children.
One important study, published in early 2017 in the International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccinationby two highly regarded Italian scientists, raises alarming new questions about quality control by vaccine manufacturers with implications for the vaccine safety debate. (The World Mercury Project previously summarized the study here.)
Coauthored by physicist Antonietta Gatti and pharmacist Stefano Montanari, the study uncovered the nearly universal presence in vaccines of “micro-, sub-micro- and nanosized inorganic foreign bodies” and “debris”—ingredients not declared in the package inserts.
In a reasonable world, the startling finding that vaccines are widely contaminated with heavy metal particulates would be front-page news, and the two researchers who discovered the contamination would be hailed as diligent scientists dedicated to improving vaccine safety. Instead, Drs. Gatti and Montanari have become targets for violent threats on Facebook. Accusers denounce their meticulous laboratory work as “pseudoscience” and call for the two scientists to be “beaten until they bleed,” “punched,” “kicked” and “taken out of commission” so as to make them “understand that they need to remain silent.”
An army of pharmaceutical industry trolls and bloggers have pressured the badly shaken journal editor to “unpublish” the study, which was published after a rigorous peer review process. Although these tactics have succeeded in rattling the editor, the article stands. Gatti and Montanari believe so strongly in the integrity of their findings that they have made known that they will sue if the journal takes down the paper.
Despite the passion of their attacks, industry bloggers have been hard pressed to find substantive fault with Gatti/Montanari’s methodologies. An industry flack, Guido Silvestri, working at a vaccine center in Atlanta, took a bungling shot at the Gatti-Montanari study on Italian Facebook by misapplying a nineteenth-century law of chemistry called Avogadro’s number. Silvestri misinterpreted Avogadro’s law, which applies only to gases and cannot calculate nanoparticle concentrations. According to Drs. Gatti and Montanari, the medical doctor “erred by 13 orders of magnitude but did not even understand his own mistake.”
Gatti and Montanari work in the emerging fields of nanopathology and nanotoxicology. The two researchers coined the term “nanopathology” in the early 2000s after finding that nanoparticles (particles less than 100 nanometers in size) “induce far more severe [health] effects” than larger particles. As they explain, the minute size makes it “extremely easy” for the particles to infiltrate the body’s tissues.
Drs. Gatti and Montanari used cutting-edge electron microscope technology to physically examine inorganic, particulate contaminants in vaccines and identify their chemical composition. They assessed 44 vaccines manufactured in Italy and France (43 human vaccines and one veterinary vaccine), taking pains to include different types, batches and years of production. In every human vaccine, Gatti and Montanari found wide-ranging contamination, including minute particles of lead or stainless steel in all of the vaccine samples analyzed; chromium in over half (25/44); tungsten in almost a fifth (8/44); and many other varieties of metallic particles.
Ironically, the single veterinary vaccine tested as “clean,” proving that it is possible to manufacture a debris-free vaccine. Gatti and Montanari believe that the pristine hog vaccine is a homage to ham, a sacred culinary and agricultural product in Italy. Hog farmers, aware that aluminum adjuvants in vaccines harm their meat, had enough clout to successfully lobby for uncontaminated veterinary vaccines.
One of the study’s most sobering findings was the detection of “organic-inorganic composites” that represent a “nano-bio-interaction” between the inorganic particulate matter and the organic (protein) vaccine components. Gatti and Montanari believe that the immune system is permanently damaged by these composite particles, which constitute “a bigger-sized compound that is not biodegradable and can induce adverse effects,” including both immediate and deferred autoimmune problems.
Dr. Gatti has considered several hypotheses about the origins of the vaccine contamination, including shoddy line protocols in the manufacturing process. According to Gatti, “The facilities need to be really clean to ensure that dust and pollutants do not find their way into the vaccines. If the labs do not have proper filtration, then this kind of contamination is very possible. And unfortunately, there are no regulations requiring manufacturers to do this kind of quality control, even though the manufacturers know that there is something wrong.” In short, the manufacturers “see no need to spend more money on quality control.”
Gatti and Montanari see an urgent need for more studies of the association between the debris and vaccine-related adverse events. “We still don’t know whether the kinds of adverse events that result from vaccines are the result of the aluminum adjuvants or the nano-bio interactions or something else. That is why it is so important to study the effects of the nano-bio materials inside the blood and body.”
Exposure via injection is known to induce toxicity reactions as compared to inhalation or ingestion. A study in mice found that exposure route was a crucial factor influencing toxicity and that orally administered compounds exhibited a “decrease of toxicity…as compared with injection route.” Scientists agree that “engineered metal-based nanoparticles can translocate to tissues,” and, in Gatti’s and Montanari’s view, when they enter the body via injection, “they stay there forever.”
Another point is that the barrage of toxic adjuvants and ingredients in vaccines (including aluminum and thimerosal, formaldehyde, antibiotics and “adjuvant systems” involving squalene and polysorbate 80) “have a synergistic action, thus…enhancing their aggressive potential.” Toxicologists know that, with toxins, one plus one rarely equals two but, in Dr. Gatti’s words, “always a higher number.”
Finally, Dr. Gatti observes that “the contaminants might not be homogenously distributed within a given batch of vaccines. For example, the bottom of the batch might be more contaminated than the top, which could explain why some people don’t have reactions and other people do.”
Drs. Gatti and Montanari outline a number of research topics that should form the basis of serious efforts to improve vaccine safety:
Unfortunately, in Italy, as in the United States, serious studies of vaccine safety face practically insurmountable headwinds. Italy’s Minister of Health, Beatrice Lorenzin, has explicitly “forbidden” any research on nanoparticles in vaccines. Lorenzin aggressively pushed passage of the law mandating children’s vaccines. Lorenzin, a former journalist, has no formal education beyond ordinary high school. Gatti and Montanari point out that she has “no knowledge of chemistry or biology.” They add, “If you mention the nanoparticle research to her, she gets mad.” According to the two researchers, Lorenzin “does not understand science, but she understands money” and relies for guidance on Dr. Ranieri Guerra, the Ministry of Health’s Director General for Prevention. Guerra served on the board of Italy’s Smith Kline Foundation. The Smith Kline Foundation receives financial support from founding partner GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Consumer advocacy organizations and legislators in Italy have harshly criticized Guerra for conflicts of interest.
A year before the passage of the new vaccine mandate, an April 2016 news report indicated that GSK-Italy was “doubling down” on its vaccine portfolio and “betting 1 billion euros on Italy.” The drug company is beefing up a vaccine research and development hub in Siena and a vaccine manufacturing plant in Rosia. The article quoted the global president of GSK Vaccines, who characterized GSK’s vaccine branch as a “motor of innovation” and guarantor of the company’s long-term sustainability. The same GSK executive described Italy’s pivotal role as a vaccine research and production hub as “a not insignificant step” toward further “progress” in the vaccine marketplace.
Italian officials have historically been important supporters of aggressive vaccine policies. In 2009–2010, the Italian government (via the taxpayers) purchased 24 million bird flu vaccines that were never used. The unused vaccines were thrown away but, says Dr. Montanari, “the companies made a lot of money.” Referring to this situation as a “flop,” the Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported that the country was left holding the bag for the cost of the unused vaccines while the apparent “pandemic” evaporated into thin air.
Dr. Montanari views the new vaccine law as both a social and medical experiment: “The government and the pharmaceutical industry want to see what happens when 60 million people are forced to be vaccinated.”
