MSG is sometimes hidden in food with labels that say "No Added MSG,"

Manufacturers are acutely aware that many consumers would prefer not to have MSG (1) in their food.(2) Some manufacturers have responded by using "clean labels," i.e., labels that contain only ingredient names they think consumers will not recognize as containing MSG -- names such as "hydrolyzed soy protein." Others advertise "No MSG," "No MSG Added," or "No Added MSG," even though their products contain MSG. Most offenders are small processors who are possibly being misguided by the FDA, the USDA, and/or consultants. Hain and Campbell's, both large companies, are among those who have been alerted to both the deception that they are perpetrating and the illegality of what they are doing, yet continue with what the FDA has termed deceptive and misleading labeling.

You ain't seen nothing yet: after Hurricane Ivan, prepare for the return of El Niño (Sept 12)

Disastrous weather is set to continue for at least another six months, it was officially announced yesterday, as Hurricane Ivan headed for the Cayman Islands and Cuba after leaving at least eight people dead in Jamaica. The US government confirmed that a new El Niño is about to strike, bringing torrential rain and droughts around the world. (...) During an El Niño, warm water flows eastwards across the Pacific, bringing heavy rain to the US West Coast and most of Central and South America. By contrast Australia, Indonesia and parts of north-east and southern Africa usually suffer drought. Europe is relatively unaffected. The last big El Niño in 1997-98 cost hundreds of lives and caused $34bn (£19bn) in damage worldwide, partly through flooding to Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia and partly through failing harvests in Australia, the Philippines and Indonesia. A more recent, milder one in 2002-03 caused the worst Australian drought in a century. CLIP


Ivan May Just Be a Messenger (September 15, 2004),1282,64952,00.html

Hurricane Ivan is among the most powerful Atlantic storms in recent history, and more such storms are likely in the future due to global warming, say climate experts. "Global warming is creating conditions that (are) more favorable for hurricanes to develop and be more severe," said Kevin Trenberth, head of the climate analysis section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.

Bush: Global warming is just hot air (Sept. 10, 2004)

Don't expect President Bush to discuss global warming -- the world's most serious environmental problem -- on the campaign trail in the next eight weeks. The former oilman from Texas doesn't dare alienate his friends in the fossil fuel and auto industries, prime purveyors of global warming. Bush still refuses to admit that burning Chevron with Techron in our Jeep Grand Cherokees, not to mention megatons of coal in our power plants, has brought us 19 of the 20 hottest years on record since 1980. "You're talking about a president who says that the jury is out on evolution, so what possible evidence would you need to muster to prove the existence of global warming?" says Robert F. Kennedy Jr., author of the new book "Crimes Against Nature." "We've got polar ice caps melting, glaciers disappearing all over the world, ocean levels rising, coral reefs dying. But these people are flat-earthers." In fact, Bush's see-no-evil, hear-no-evil stance on global warming is so intractable that even when his own administration's scientists weigh in on the issue, he simply won't hear of it. CLIP

The Psycho State

by Rep. Ron Paul, MD

A presidential initiative called The "New Freedom Commission on Mental Health" has issued a report recommending forced mental health screening for every child in America, including preschool children. The goal is to promote the patently false idea that we have a nation of children with undiagnosed mental disorders crying out for treatment.

One obvious beneficiary of the proposal is the pharmaceutical industry, which is eager to sell the psychotropic drugs that undoubtedly will be prescribed to millions of American schoolchildren under the new screening program. Of course a tiny minority of children suffer from legitimate mental illnesses, but the widespread use of Ritalin and other drugs on youngsters who simply exhibit typical rambunctious, fidgety, and impatient behavior is nothing short of criminal. It may be easier to teach and parent drugged kids, but convenience is no justification for endangering them. Children?s brains are still developing, and the truth is we have no idea what the long-term side effects of psychiatric drugs may be. Medical science has not even exhaustively identified every possible brain chemical, even as we alter those chemicals with drugs.

The Coincidence Theorist's Guide to 9/11


I posted an earlier version of this last week at Democratic Underground . I've added a number of more entries, and links for all.


Happy coincidenting!

That governments have permitted terrorist acts against their own people , and have even themselves been perpetrators in order to find strategic advantage is quite likely true, but this is the United States we're talking about.

That intelligence agencies, financiers, terrorists and narco-criminals have a long history together is well established, but the Nugan Hand Bank , BCCI , Banco Ambrosiano , the P2 Lodge , the CIA/Mafia anti-Castro/Kennedy alliance, Iran/Contra and the rest were a long time ago, so there's no need to rehash all that . That was then, this is now !

That Jonathan Bush's Riggs Bank has been found guilty of laundering terrorist funds and fined a US-record $25 million must embarrass his nephew George, but it's still no justification for leaping to paranoid conclusions.

That George Bush's brother Marvin sat on the board of the Kuwaiti-owned company which provided electronic security to the World Trade Centre, Dulles Airport and United Airlines means nothing more than you must admit those Bush boys have done alright for themselves.

That George Bush found success as a businessman only after the investment of Osama's brother Salem and reputed al Qaeda financier Khalid bin Mahfouz is just one of those things - one of those crazy things.

That Osama bin Laden is known to have been an asset of US foreign policy in no way implies he still is .

That al Qaeda was active in the Balkan conflict, fighting on the same side as the US as recently as 1999, while the US protected its cells, is merely one of history's little aberrations .

'Hate Crime' Law Passes Senate - On To House

Grievous Constitutional Destruction The End Of Free Speech Nears

By Ted Twietmeyer
tedtw [at] frontiernet [dot] net

Recently, within a defense bill on Capitol Hill another bill was hidden. This hidden attachment pertains to so-called "hate crimes." The bill is Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act (S. 933), a pro-homosexual hate crimes bill. The Defense bill with the 'hate crime' attachment passed the senate 65 to 33, and will now be going to the house. What does this mean? Simply put, it permits the GOVERNMENT to decide what is a hate crime. The measure also extends into our freedom of speech. EVERYONE should be aware, that almost anything you do or say can be construed as a 'hate crime' by someone, somewhere if that person or group chooses to silence the views and thoughts you are discussing. We've already seen the Patriot Act abused during the RNC, as over 1000 Americans have been arrested merely for expressing their rights of free speech and dissent as AMERICANS. Now, if the DOJ couples this new bill with the Patriot Act, we are in grave trouble. Remember that most all acts are named after WHO THE 'ACT' IS AGAINST: Riot Act - Against riots in public RICO Act - Racketeering and organized crime Patriot Act - Against patiots, and those that refuse to believe it you can read the act online at sites like An example of a "hate crime" under this new legislation would be to simply mention the word homosexual in any any CHURCH...and that could be grounds to be arrested. Everyone who knows about this act of madness which has NO BOUNDS OF INTERPRETATION UNDER THE LAW MUST CALL THEIR CONGRESSMAN IMMEDIATELY. Neo-con lord bush will sign it, as he signs EVERY law that helps to promote a police state. ONCE THIS PANDORAS BOX IS OPENED TO CANCEL YOUR RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH, THERE WILL BE NO CLOSING IT. REMEMBER THAT IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO ACT AND BE A COUCH PATRIOT.

Update - Apparently Hatch and company have re-submitted the hate crimes bill, and it is now known as S.966. On the traditionalfamilyvalues website and elsewhere, it shows the bill listed as S.933. Here is another write up about the problems such a bill can create from the senate:

The ONLY solution is to enforce The Plan and reinstate God's Perfect Laws of Liberty:-

9/11 - 'War of the Worlds'

This article by the Publisher of MER, Mark Bruzonsky*, appears in a European edition
  of Playboy Magazine this month (Oct 2001) and was completed on 17 September 2001:

 "This crusade, this war on terrorism, is going to take a while.  We will rid the world of the evil-doers." - President George W. Bush, 16 Sept

The United States of America will surely prevail in the new war of our worlds -- in the short term.

That is the case not because of any gods out there taking sides and not because of good or evil – metaphysical concepts both of the mismatched combatants constantly insist on invoking each within their own rich historical paradigms.  The sheer military might and technological superiority of the Americans, now fully engaged in the wake of the surreal events of 11 September 2001, is simply beyond the capabilities of anyone else on the planet to successfully resist -- in the short term.

In the case of America's new war, the full might of the USA is being mobilized not against the armies of other nation states, but against the fanatical descendants of a puritanical militant Islam whose calling has become relentless opposition to American hegemony and passionate assertion of their own quaintly medieval religious constructs.

This is hardly the next war that most anticipated since the Great Wars that decimated so much of Europe and Asia in the last century.  But radical as it may sound to many this is the war many in the American military-industrial establishment have been waiting to engage.

An Evening In Pursuit Of The Truth

By Judy Andreas

Words cannot express what an inspiring, exciting event I attended on September 11, 2004 in New York City. It was called Confronting the Evidence: 911 and the Search for Truth.

My friends and I arrived at the Manhattan Center at 7:00, a full hour before the program. The streets were already full. The Manhattan Center must hold 1000 people and yet there were additional hundreds outside hoping for cancellations. This was a very good sign. Recently a Zogby poll stated that over 40% of New Yorkers do not believe the official story of the events that transpired on September 11, 2001. Several people believe that the 9/11 Commission should have been re-titled the 9/11 Omission as it was nothing more than a whitewash.

The Hidden Truth about Russia's Beslan Siege
Submitted by: Anonymous "September 11, 2004

The events at Beslan have a precedent and follow a clear pattern. People are recruited to carry out acts of terror by the CIA, MOSSAD, MI6 or Russian FSB but are not told everything and sometimes are caught as at Beslan. This was the case at Bali, 9/11 planners in Germany, Hamas and in Kenya etc.

According to Russian lawyer Mikhail Trepashkin (google him) the Russian secret services were responsible for the 1999 apartment bombings blamed on Chechen muslims and the Moscow theatre seige last year also blamed on Chechen muslims. He has been imprisoned for 4 years for saying so.

According to the Jamestown Foundation, 4 agents of the Russian secret services were among the hostage takers at the moscow theatre seige and they were in COMMANDING POSITIONS.( type "dubrovka" at the Jamestown Foundation's own search engine). They also say that the storming of the theatre was totally unecesssary as an agreement was reached with the "terrorists". Was the storming of the Beslan school necessary? Probably not if it had not been for the FSB.

The following is what most likely occurred and the links below back it up...

Dershowitzian Logic: Amend International Law to Attack Iran--The Ultimate Chutzpah

By Kam Zarrabi


Responding to the article by Alan Dershowitz in Forward Newspaper Online, August 20, 2004: ³Amend International Law to Allow Preemptive Strike on Iran²

The renowned defense attorney and Harvard Law School professor, Alan Dershowitz, needs no introduction to the American public, and not just for his involvement with the so-called Dream-Team of defense lawyers in the O. J. Simpson trials. Dershowitz is also the author of several books, among them Chutzpah and The Case For (the Jewish State in, but not of) Israel.

Israeli spy nest in the U.S. ? Ashcroft says: 'Don't arrest them!'

The Washington Post is confirming the analysis, posted here two days ago, that (the Jewish State in, but not of) Israel's spy nest in the Pentagon involves a lot more than neocon ideologue Larry Franklin leaking the text of a draft presidential directive on Iran to AIPAC employees, who then passed it on to (the Jewish State in, but not of) Israel:

Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of Scripture for the people of this nation.

Patrick Henry, who is called the firebrand of the American Revolution, is still remembered for his words, "Give me liberty or give me death"; but in current textbooks, the context of these words is omitted.

Teflon Chemicals are a Threat to Health


Dupont recently defended its position about partially complying with federal reporting guidelines on the health risks of a key ingredient found in Teflon.

The chemical giant has been criticized on many sides for its decision not to release all the information it compiled on perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a soap-like ingredient used in making non-stick surfaces and materials. As a result, EPA has sought fines up to $300 million, arguing the company failed to inform the government and public about PFOA. The concerns:

21:20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son [is] stubborn and rebellious [against God], he will not obey our voice; [he is] a GLUTTON, and a drunkard.

American couch potatoes take note Diet, weight can affect brain function: study

The Australian From AP
20 July 04


EATING vegetables like broccoli and spinach may help older women retain some memory abilities later on, while avoiding obesity in middle age lowers the risk of later Alzheimer's disease in both sexes, new studies suggest.

The work mirrors prior evidence that people may help keep their brains healthy by following standard health advice, including things like staying active and keeping cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure under control.

In fact, one of the new studies found evidence that obesity, high cholesterol and high blood pressure in middle age each added substantially to the risk of developing Alzheimer's or other dementia later on.

Major temperature rise recorded in Arctic

August 28, 2004

German scientists probing global warming say they have detected a major temperature rise in the Arctic Ocean this year and linked it to a progressive shrinking of the region's sea ice.

Temperatures recorded this year in the upper 500 metres of sea in the Fram Strait - the gap between Greenland and the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen - were up to 0.6 C higher than in 2003, they said. The rise was detectable to a water depth of 2,000 metres, "representing an exceptionally strong signal by ocean standards," it said.

Congressman McFadden's Speech On the Federal Reserve Corporation
On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND TREASON.

Quotations from several speeches made on the Floor of the House of Representatives by the Honorable Louis T. McFadden of Pennsylvania. Mr. McFadden, due to his having served as Chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee for more than 10 years, was the best posted man on these matters in America and was in a position to speak with authority of the vast ramifications of this gigantic private credit monopoly.

The Constitutional argument against this Fed's creation:

Section. 8.
Clause 1 : The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
Clause 5 : To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures; " I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs ." --Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President.

Top Ten Farces of the Bush Administration

by Jim Bovard
Thu Sep 2, 2004 18:14 Top Ten Farces.htm

* Money Laundering Muff: Bush and Ashcroft brag about how the feds' new surveillance powers will stop terrorist financiers. But the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control has ten times more agents assigned to track violators of the U.S. embargo on Cuba as it has tracking Osama Bin Laden's money.

* Attorney General John Ashcroft claims that federal agents have become far more savvy in defending America against terrorists. But last December, the FBI warned 17,000 local and state law enforcement agencies that people traveling with a World Almanac could be terrorist plotters.

* The Transportation Security Administration was disgraced last Fall by a 20-year old college student who smuggled simulated explosives onto airplanes and left them stashed onboard. The student sent TSA an email detailing his actions but the agency never bothered to read it. After the fiasco became public, a top TSA official angrily proclaimed: "Amateur testing like this does not in any way assist us or show us where we have flaws in our system."

* The TSA is imposing fines of up to $1500 on Americans show bad attitudes when passing through TSA airport checkpoints. But the feds have done little or nothing to rein in the arrogance and rudeness of TSA agents who seem to believe that browbeating grandmothers is the same thing as thwarting Al Qaeda.

Get ready for the USSA

The former head of the KGB, General Yevgeni Primakov, (reputed to be "the Henry Kissenger" of the Russian Federation - Ed.), has been hired as a consultant by the US Department of Homeland Security. Do you think he will share his expertise in "security" to prepare US citizens for domestic internal passports under the pretense of fighting the never-ending "War on Terrorism"?

CAPPS II is the name of the new program which is technically under the auspices of the US Department of Transportation, but that's only . . . to use the Transportation Department's budget to buy the computer hardware and software they need.

Microwaving Your Food Isn't Safe

Water one pot with water that has been microwaved, the other with regular tap. The seeds that received microwaved water won't sprout. If microwaved water can stop plants from growing, think of what microwaved food can do to your health!

Israeli espionage and national security

Not again.

The FBI says it has found a Pentagon employee who has been slipping secrets about Iran to the Israelis. The Israelis deny everything, as usual, and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) likewise denies serving as the conduit.

There are many reasons to be skeptical of these denials. Here are just a few.


"Following decades of intense lobbying by the mind control psychiatrists and psychiatric-medical establishment, the U.S. government made plans to establish mega-agencies, such as HEW (Health, Education and Welfare) and VA (Veterans Administration). It can be no coincidence that through these agencies many of the atrocities of the Invisible War have been committed."

    China's Farmers Cannot Feed Hungry Cities No Longer Self-Sufficient in Food, the Country Today Increasingly has to Buy Abroad...

After a steady fall in grain harvests, the world's most populous nation recently became a net importer of food for the first time in its history, raising domestic political concerns and driving up international prices of wheat, rice and soya. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Bush, Kerry and partisan hypocrisy

That sort of reversal might seem odd if it wasn't so reminiscent of other partisan battles over the past decade. Washington has become mired in a Red Team-Blue Team battle that leads partisans on both sides into rank hypocrisy .

    Genetically Engineered Foods May Pose National Health Risk

    By Jeffrey M. Smith

    In a study in the early 1990s rats were fed genetically modified (GM) tomatoes. Well actually, the rats refused to eat them. They were force-fed. Several of the rats developed stomach lesions and seven out of forty died within two weeks. Scientists at the FDA who reviewed the study agreed that it did not provide a “demonstration of reasonable certainty of no harm.” In fact, agency scientists warned that GM foods in general might create unpredicted allergies, toxins, antibiotic resistant diseases, and nutritional problems. Internal FDA memos made public from a lawsuit reveal that the scientists urged their superiors to require long-term safety testing to catch these hard-to-detect side effects.

    We Must Fight!

    by Patrick Henry

    No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the house. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen, if entertaining, as I do, opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the house is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery. And in proportion to the magnitude of the subject, ought to be the freedom of debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself guilty of treason toward my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of Heaven when I revere above all earthly kings.
