Steve Cooksey has a Diabetic Warrior website which is being investigated by the American Dietetic Assoc., which was the first state to have a unique law enacted. It seems, in NC, you can’t give dietary advice without a license. The following is the story:
This Site & Free Speech are being investigated
By Steve Cooksey, on January 28th, 2012
I tell people to eat like I do!!!! …without a license!! Horrors!!!
Here’s my story if you don’t know it… I’m just a formerly obese, formerly insulin and drug dependent Type 2 Diabetic… who has normal blood sugar… and I’m drug and insulin FREE!
Note 1: Every single person that ‘eats like me’ or similarly improves health markers… every single one.
The point? … no one is ‘hurt’ by following my food recipes nor the meal plan I follow.
Note 2: Here is a link to the NC Law I am violating, “GUIDELINE A_6“. I still, to this day have not read it… maybe I will some day. :)
Note 3: If you look on the emblem you see that the board was formed in 1992. Since they were formed, obesity and diabetes has skyrocketed in the state, the nation and the world. But yeah… don’t let me hurt someone …..
Fact #1- I attended a nutritional seminar January 12, 2012. I spoke up against the normal deceptions and falsehoods that cause diabetics harm.
Fact #2- Someone took offense to my statements, found me on the internet and reviewed my site. They then reported me to the North Carolina Board of Dietitians.
Fact #3 - I received a phone call from the director of the State Board of Dietitians. To be fair and honest… she was very nice, polite and informative.
However…. She stated that I, as a non-licensed person could provide NO dietary or nutritional advice… period. It makes no difference if I am giving the advice away or if it’s for a fee.
She also stated that having a ‘diabetes menu’ and or ‘diabetes meal plan’ was the equivalent of providing nutritional advice and was against the regulations.
Fact #4 - She stated that the full “complaint board” would review my site and provide a written review of the investigation, hopefully by the end of this month, January. She added that even IF convicted, it would only be a misdemeanor but typically these cases end without litigation, if the person agrees to change their behaviors or websites.

CPUC TO VOTE WED. ON FLAWED SMART METER OPT-OUT POLICY
Critics say Extortionate Fees are Illegal; Entire Program Should be Scrapped
San Francisco — The California Public Utilities Commission—whose members are appointed by the Governor, not elected by the people—is set to vote on a plan this Wednesday to charge Californians hundreds of dollars per year simply to retain standard electric and gas analog meters on their homes.
The vote comes amidst a growing controversy over the health impacts, safety, and privacy violations of the meters being deployed in California and around the world. Opponents point to widely reported health symptoms as one reason for the lack of public acceptance of smart grid technology- a movement which has frequently flared into open rebellion, and say that fees are only being implemented to tamp down a wider rejection of the meters. Studies done by the utility industry indicate that if the opt out were free, 40-60% of ratepayers would choose to take advantage of it. A large proportion of households deciding to opt out could lead to a possible collapse of the wireless mesh network that utilities like PG&E have already spent billions of ratepayer dollars on, so far with little but customer complaints to show for it. Electrosensitive individuals are opposing the fees, comparing the policy to charging disabled people to access a wheelchair ramp.
“Charging people with electro-sensitivity-who cannot tolerate smart meter radiation- extra on their utility bills, simply because the utilities neglected to consult with their customer base prior to roll-out, is extortion (a kind of “protection racket”) and violates the state utility code prohibiting discrimination based on disability. Once again the PUC is failing to put public safety first, and Governor Brown’s appointees are apparently no exception,” said Joshua Hart, Spokesperson for CA-based StopSmart Meters!
If you closely follow the vaccine reports, you understand what vaccinations can do to our health. The recent vaccine drop in Texas is much like fluoride, which was mandated by law to be added in our water. It is a known medical fact that fluoridation can lead to deterioration of our immune system, which can lead to unpredictable illness. Both are forms of forced medication. Why are they doing this? Shouldn’t people have the right to say no?
Rabies Vaccine to be dropped from the air
The Texas Department of State Health Services will drop vaccines from the air Wednesday. It’s part of the annual effort to protect people and livestock from rabies. They’ll drop about 1.8 million doses of the rabies vaccine over the next month. The vaccines are enclosed in small packets dipped in fish oil and coated with fish meal crumbles.
The baits don’t pose a risk to humans, but organizers say you should avoid them because animals are less likely to eat the bait if a human has been messing with it.
There are 9 politicians we have elected voted NO to mandatory labeling of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) food. After all, money IS more important than health. Please take time to call, write, or visit your representatives to let them know what your concern is.

Do you ever wonder why there is so much cancer today? There is recorded evidence that the government knew at the time that they were injecting a cancer causing virus into America’s population as far back as 1953. This SV-40 monkey virus is passed from mother to child. Please, do your own research.
The interview was never aired, however. In the interview, Dr. Hilleman acknowledges that vaccines given to millions of people worldwide contained the SV-40 monkey virus which is associated with leukemia and other cancers. He also admits that the HIV virus was introduced to humans through vaccines created using HIV infected African monkeys.
The foremost virologists studying AIDS, Drs. Robert Gallo and Luke Montaignard, agree that it is a virus from the African green monkey that causes AIDS. They have designated this virus HIV for human immunodeficiency virus. Another virus carried by the African green monkey is SV-40, or simian virus 40. Its clinical manifestations in laboratory animals are identical to those produced by HIV. In other words, SV-40 causes symptoms similar to AIDS. It is also linked to tumor growth and birth defects. Dr. Janet Butel of the Baylor College of Medicine, the lead author of the Baylor study, stated, “I feel strongly that research is warranted to determine how common human infections by SV40 may be, and what factors might predispose individuals to SV40-related tumors.”
SV-40 is the genetic glue which permits different DNAs to recombine to produce mutations and anomalies, and which allows toxic substances to penetrate cells more readily. Human blood specimens preserved frozen for 25 years have been found contaminated with this virus. More importantly, wherever SV-40 goes, so goes HIV and other green monkey viruses. The question is, how did these viruses find their way into humans so quickly and uniformly? Dr. Snead found the answer in 1987, and the Baylor study did so in 1999.
According to sources cited by Dr. Snead, cells from the African green monkey have been used since 1953 as a growth medium for the polio vaccine. The use of the polio vaccine contaminated with green monkey virus is probably responsible for the current epidemics in child cancers, birth defects, and AIDS. These diseases, coincidentally, increased dramatically after the introduction of the polio vaccine. No one knows how many batches of this vaccine have been contaminated over the years, but exposed individuals may range in the millions. Despite assurances to the contrary, Dr. Snead insisted until her death in July 2008 that the polio and other vaccines remained contaminated with animal viruses. She coined the term Immunization Related Syndrome (IRS) for the diseases associated with these contaminated vaccines. (Coincidentally, the initials are the same as those of another well-known pathogen plaguing our society.)
At the beginning of the Persian Gulf War, Dr. Snead predicted that many of the servicemen taking part in Desert Shield/Desert Storm would develop symptoms similar to those which are now associated with the Persian Gulf syndrome. She based her prediction on her research into vaccines, a careful investigation of the medical literature, and her knowledge of biology and medicine. She concluded that dangerous viruses are routinely and knowingly injected into military personnel, a claim verified in 2004 by investigative reporter Gary Matsumoto in his book Vaccine A, The Covert Government Experiment That’s Killing Our Soldiers. She warned that the viruses do not affect all servicemen the same way, nor do they necessarily affect them immediately. Some lie dormant for decades until activated by other viruses to cause cancers and other ailments.
Dietary supplements are big business. They take in billions of dollars in sales every year. Consequently, with the help of our politicians and news media, the pharmaceutical industry would do anything to protect their market shares.
In addition, prevention is not the main focus of the pharmaceutical industry in the US. The reason is because they don’t make money when we are healthy. The same goes for the politician, i.e. they don’t get contributions when there is no crisis. Also, if the media did its job in reporting about the pharmaceutical industry they would not get the advertising funds from the pharmaceutical interests.
The scenario looks like this:
Over-the-counter dietary supplements are the primary source of competition for the pharmaceutical industry.
- Americans spend $27 billion on dietary supplements; pharmaceutical interests want to re-route the money to their bottom line.
- In order for the federal government and the medical industry to control health care completely, over-the-counter supplements must be banned or reduced to an ineffective dosage.
- With Medicare spending projected to increase to $900 billion by 2018, the Feds are looking for ways to trim cost and dietary supplements are on the Feds’ radar screen as a cost-cutting measure, thus providing more incentive for pharmaceutical interests to gain control of supplements.
- DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994) presents a problem for conventional medicine. DSHEA gives Americans the right to purchase safe, over-the-counter supplements in useful dosages.
- The FDA is currently attempting to undermine and re-write DSHEA by re-defining the terms regulating dietary supplements in its new Draft Guidance. NDI (new dietary ingredients) is a side door which provides an indirect way to decimate the dietary supplement industry by increasing the cost to manufacturers in the name of providing a higher degree of “safety” for products appearing on the market after 1994, resulting in increased seizure of products and driving smaller companies out of business. The newer products which could disappear include supplements such as the Ubiquinol form of CoQ10, Resveratrol, Grape Seed Extract, Pycnogenol, Alpha Lipoic Acid, N-Acetyl-Cysteine, Green Tea Extract, etc. Details may be found in the FDA’s “Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredients: Notifications and Related Issues.”
- On the international front, the U.S. signed the World Health Organization’s trade agreement, Codex Alimentarius, which may supersede the laws of the countries signing it. Countries not in compliance are considered holdouts and may not be allowed to trade. Codex has the potential to override our DSHEA if the FDA doesn’t undercut it first.
- When pharmaceutical interests control the supplement industry, conventional medicine will control health care options.
We depend on supplements to support our health, especially for many who take prescription drugs. A take-over of dietary supplements by conventional medicine is not acceptable.

GM crops could pollute to adjacent fields, a great efforts would need to clean up contaminated field. Percy Schmeiser, a Canadian farmer, works on farming and developing his own seeds for 50 years. When his fields were contaminated, Monsanto threatened him, intimidated him, and tried to take his land away. He took them to court. After years in & out of court, He won. Monsanto paid for the clean up. See the full story here.
Dr. Mercola and Dr. Don Huber met to discuss about Monsanto’s RoundUp Ready crops. According to Dr. Don Huber, an agricultural scientist and expert in microbial ecology, is convinced that Monsanto’s genetically engineered “RoundUp Ready” crops are responsible for a new micro-monster that’s causing an outbreak of new plant, animal and human diseases.
I see this is all about food control, which fits right into UN Agenda 21. I believe it’s important to educate consumers to read label and demand to protect our foods. A coalition of consumer, public health and environmental health are campaigning for a ballot initiative to get mandatory labeling for GM foods sold in State of California. Supporters have been working tirelessly gathering signatures for CA Food Labeling Act to put on the ballot in 2012. If you would like to volunteer or donate to their efforts to do more, please go to

Starting January 1, 2012, Walgreens and its sister stores, Duane Reade’s, Happy Harry’s or Option Care, are no longer in network.
We have sent many communications across all lines of business over the last two months to try to limit disruption. We are also calling our members who may be affected.
We are making automated calls to the following:
- Members who visit a Walgreens on or after January 1, 2012, and the claim is rejected (because Walgreens is no longer in network)
- Members who use Walgreens, are on maintenance medication(s) and are approaching their refill date
- Members who use Walgreens, are on maintenance medication(s) and missed their refill window
The automated call script is designed to help members move their prescriptions to an in-network pharmacy and avoid disruption. We will run this campaign through February.
An employer email is planned for the week of January 9. Please call your sales representative with questions.
This article applies to:
· California, Wisconsin, Virginia, Ohio, New York, Nevada, New Hampshire, Missouri, Maine, Kentucky, Indiana, Georgia, Connecticut, and Colorado

FDA funds large sums of money to various State agriculture departments each month for training state-level agents using the same infiltrating and spying technique on raw dairy milk industry as described in NaturalNews. It’s odd, FDA determines Genetically Modified (GM) crops far more super, and nutritional to our health than raw milk. Am I missing something? or is it part of Agenda 21? We need to educate ourselves and others about how to protect our “God given rights “.
Resembling the Stasi East German police or KGB of the former Soviet Union, these undercover FDA agents meet each month for a “spying roundtable” phone conference called the Raw Milk Call during which techniques of infiltration are openly discussed and encouraged.
As one example, NaturalNews has learned the FDA currently pays the Wisconsin Dept. of Agriculture more than $80,000 a month for it to spend on these raw dairy spying and infiltration schemes. Shortly after the program was launched, FDA flew several of its top agents to Wisconsin to walk the local farmers’ markets with spies-in-training agents, teaching them spying and infiltration techniques in what was essentially a “Raw milk spy camp.”

What is the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA)? SOPA is legislation designed to regulate how digital communication is used. SOPA will be voted on this month. How is it going to affect you? It is going to affect every one who uses the internet as a communication tool. SOPA will definitely influence how I share my information. SOPA is designed to more than just control the Internet, and the ability of people to express their opinion, it also allows the shutting down of any website and any Internet provider as they see fit. Are we in a police state? You bet.
Stop online privacy Act – Son of Patriot Act
Watch the following video; it gives you more detail on how it regulates the internet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhwuXNv8fJM
Son of Patriot Act
Same group of people help you to violate the law and then punish you for violation.
Year end is approaching; it’s time to plan for the coming year. A great deal of state legislation has been quietly passed. If you are a small business owner or a self-employed individual, new laws may impact how you do business.
There are several changes to Labor laws which will take effect in 2012. Pregnancy disability leave and maternity coverage are amongst those. How does it affect employers and employees?
SB299, this legislation gives women more benefits on pregnancy disability leave. Previously, an employer may cease group health plan payments on behalf of an employee on this type of leave, when certain conditions were met. Under the new law, employers are now prohibited from doing so. In the past, only employers with 50 or more employees were required to follow the old rule of maternity leave for up to 12 weeks. The new changes will affect small businesses with as few as five employees; also the new law extends the time from three months to four months.
SB222 outlines how the health insurers are doing business in California? The law will take effect on July 1, 2012.
The new law requires all Health insurance providers who do business in California to provide maternity coverage, such as prenatal care; maternity services; inpatient hospital maternity care….. Individuals normally are favor of given the option to choose the maternity coverage or not. The option of non maternity coverage which would keep the premium lower would be ideal to some, especially to those 50+ individuals. Under the new law, Health insurance policy will no longer be offered non maternity coverage plan.
Under current economic environment, businesses are struggling to keep afloat, and have to cut their expenses in order to survive. Cutting labor costs are unavoidable. What did the new laws do to help small business? It will add more costs to run a business. I am wondering the new laws would create more jobs or would destroy small business? Or is it part of UN Agenda 21 plan?
Salute to Armed Forces!
Must watch the following video, it’s an outstanding performance.
PG&E had restored power to a small group of customers. However, PG&E did not install the analog meter, instead they used this device (see photo above) which does not measure electricity. http://www.stopsmartmeter.org
SF Chronicle reports.
The decision affects roughly a half-dozen PG&E customers, most in Santa Cruz County, who paid electricians to replace the SmartMeters with more traditional, analog models. PG&E cut off their power in a bid to deter others from following suit.
At first, the utility insisted it would restore electricity only if those people agreed to let PG&E install another SmartMeter. On Thursday, the company offered a second option, saying customers could also choose a digital meter that lacked a wireless transmitter. But some of the SmartMeter opponents still held out, saying the digital meters contained a power-switching device that produced its own harmful emissions.
So on Friday, PG&E said it would restore power to the remaining homes, after first removing the unauthorized analog meters. Those houses will go without electricity and gas meters altogether until the California Public Utilities Commission decides whether to create an opt-out plan for people who don’t want the wireless SmartMeters. A commission vote on the issue could come in mid-January. Read more….
In January of 2011, President Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act S510 into law. This unconstitutional legislation would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public’s right to grow; trade and transport any foods. It would give Big Brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don’t comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government. On the flip side, big corporations selling Genetically Mortified (GM) crops will have an upper hand to pollute our foods.
New Zealand special interest groups are pushing similar legislation in the name of food security. If it passes it will take away individual rights to grow food. What had happened in California, could happen in New Zealand. Watch the video.
In accordance with the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) Codex Alimentarius scheme for global food control, the NZ Food Bill, if passed, will essentially transfer primary control of food from individuals to corporations under the guise of food safety. And unless massive public outcry and awakened consciences within the NZ government are able to put a stop to it, the bill could become law very soon.
According to NZ Food Security, a group working to protect the food freedom of New Zealanders, the bill will turn growing and sharing food into a government-granted privilege rather than a human right. It will also make it illegal to distribute any type of food based on the bill’s language. This includes seeds, nutrients, natural medicines, minerals, and even water — without expressed government permission.
I am glad that CDFA had lifted the ban on selling Raw Milk. You can visit the site and find local shops:
Due to closing milk facility down at the time of ban, OPDC needs our help to support its products from loss of income and support the Raw Milk industry which continues to practice safe products for all of us to enjoy and to benefit the nutrition it brings.
You can also join RAWMI Raw Milk Institute – food safety organization and donate to the efforts to set safety standards in the local milk market.

Taking Calcium WITHOUT Magnesium can Cause Hardening of the Arteries (Atherosclerosis) – Something the FDA will Never Tell You
Taking Calcium WITHOUT Magnesium can Cause Hardening of the Arteries (Atherosclerosis) – Something the FDA will Never Tell You
( Summary) Magnesium balances calcium and its functions within the human body. It is believed that the adult human body contains approximately 1200 grams of calcium, with approximately 99% of it in the skeleton, and approximately 1% (about 12 grams) in extracellular fluids, intracellular structures, and cell membranes. This approximately 1% plays an essential role, in conjunction with magnesium, in the functions of nerve conduction, muscle contraction, blood clotting, and membrane permeability. It is believed that serum calcium concentration is maintained by several hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. It is known that dietary protein enhances calcium absorption, and dietary phosphorus causes calcium retention.
Magnesium deficiency is known to cause nausea, muscle weakness, neuromuscular and cardiac irritability, tetany, convulsions, tremors, mental depression, psychotic behavior, inhibit proper muscle function and contractions, as well as interfere with the proper utilization of calcium and potassium.
Magnesium is inorganic and is not produced by the human body. Humans must rely upon dietary sources to provide the body with its magnesium requirements. Magnesium is a natural component of the earth’s crust and finds its way into the diet of humans from the food products grown in soil. Foods containing the highest concentration of magnesium are unprocessed whole grains, legumes, seeds, and chlorophyll containing green plant foods (the central atom of chlorophyll molecules is magnesium). More than 80% of the magnesium content of unmilled grains are lost by removal of the germ portion and by the removal of the outer layer (bran) of the grains during the milling process. Diets rich in refined and processed foods, meats, and dairy products are low in magnesium content, in addition to increasing calcium absorption caused by protein consumption, and calcium retention caused by phosphorus consumption (often in the form of phosphates from processed foods and sodas)…MORE..
After California Public Utilities Commission cleared the way to allow public to OPT OUT, and to restore their analog meter back on their home. PG&E seems they are not quite co-operated; they shut off a dozen households in Santa Cruz and Calaveras Counties who had swapped out their “Smart meter” for analog. Read full story….
While we were celebrating Thanksgiving, Obama quietly signed legislation on November 18, which removed the ban on horse slaughter and allowing it for human consumption. Why did he change his position on banning the horse slaughter? As we know, President Obama made a campaign promise in 2008 to permanently ban horse slaughter and exports of horses for human consumption.
Furthermore, in certain States, the U.S. Federal Government set aside millions of acres of public lands for the indigenous wild horses, or Mustangs. The idea was to make sure this piece of “Americana” was protected from human encroachment and allowed to live free on the lands their ancestors roamed millions of years ago. Congress charged the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management with the stewardship of both the land and the Mustangs.
The following video shows that the interior’s Bureau of Land Management failed to protect the original intent allowing living free. The horse was killed in a less threatening speed during the ban. But, lifting the ban, Pro-slaughter group s estimate that between 120,000 and 200,000 horses will be killed for human consumption per year and that Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Georgia and Missouri, are considering opening slaughter plants.
Why did Obama abruptly sign this legislation while he was aboard? He must know something we don’t. Could it be due to an impending food shortage in US?
Chemtrails or Dust
By Ginny Linn
The following article in The Sacramento Bee is misleading (that’s putting it mildly). It tries to blame the increase in asthma on dust! When in reality it is from the “weather modification” taking place on an ever increasing rate throughout the West, as well as the rest of the nation and the world. It is known that there is an epidemic of asthma related illness (I’m one of them, and I have NEVER smoked). We must ask ourselves WHY?. Dust, you’ve got to be kidding!
All one has to do is start looking up and becoming aware of the white planes, and long white lines coming from the planes that spread out and cover our blue skies. The sun is not being allowed to shine through and warm the earth; it is also interfering with our ability to produce Vitamin D3 which is a hormone that comes naturally from the sun! Without it we MUST take supplements or we will increase our susceptibility to cancer http://www.mercola.com/article/vitamin-d-resources.htm. In Sacramento and it’s surrounding areas, there has NOT been a blue sky in over a week. We are completely covered in a white, milky haze. Due diligence is in order. Please research weather modification, chemtrails, and contrails to become educated on the differences. Don’t let newspapers like The Sacramento Bee or the New York Times tell you what the truth is; discover it for yourself.
Fallout far-reaching as dust kicks up in West
High winds blow dust over a car near San Bernardino last February. More dust appears to be getting whipped up in the West, affecting the economic and environmental life of cities and suburbs throughout the region. The dust’s main source is the Colorado Plateau, which stretches over four states.
