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!

Rabies Vaccine to be dropped from the air

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.

Cancer, Aids, and Vaccinations

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.

Excerpts:

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.

Protect Our Supplements

  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.

It is a good start to labeling our foods

  Numerous reports have documented Genetically Modified (GM) foods are a significant threat to our health. No evidence of benefits of GM crops was found. Please do your own research to find out more.

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

To Inform Anthem Members Who Use Walgreens

December 27, 2011

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

Secret War on Raw Milk Farmers

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 “.

Excerpts:

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.”

Why is internet community screaming about SOPA?

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.
