While Media Focuses On Russia, Govt’s Own Data Shows U.S. Interfered In 81 Elections

While the US spin machine hurls accusations about Russian election meddling, it's worth nothing the US is a seasoned pro at interfering in elections.

By: Claire Bernish / The Free Thought Project   Ask an average American who makes a habit of following government-mouthpiece corporate media about interference in national elections and you’ll likely elicit a nebulous response concerning Russian hackers and a plan to install Donald Trump in the White House — but you probably won’t hear a single syllable pertaining to United States government’s actual attempts to do the same.

On Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed for the first time publicly the bureau is officially investigating hotly contentious allegations of Russian meddling in the U.S. election — but, even if proven true, such geopolitical escapades better characterize the routine behavior of accuser than of accused.

“The F.B.I., as part of our counterintelligence effort, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 president election,” the director announced, adding the bureau would conduct a probe to discern whether Trump’s associates had contact with Russian officials.

Fertility Regulator Has Approved Three Parent GMO Babies

by Jessica Murray, True Activist

Approval has been given by the UK’s fertility regulator to create a baby using the DNA of three people. According to reports, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) announced its “historic” decision in December last year, after explaining that it would begin to accept applications from various fertility clinics that are wanting to become licensed to perform the technical procedure. Now commonly known as the “3-parent baby technique”, the procedure is designed to prevent a small number of children from inheriting diseases from their mothers that could be potentially fatal. The new DNA techniques are primarily intended to fix problems that are linked to mitochondria, which are the structures outside of a cell’s nucleus that produce energy. Any mitochondrial problems could cause diseases such as muscular dystrophy, major organ failure, and severe muscle weakness.

US Government Has Been Allowing A Pipeline To Release Methane Into The Ocean For Months

by Jessica Murray, True Activist

An eight inch pipeline in Alaska is currently releasing around 310,000 cubic feet of methane into the ocean every day, and reports say that it could be months until it is stopped. The pipeline located in Alaska’s Cook Inlet has been actively releasing methane daily for the past three months, and there could be a wait until May before anyone shuts it down. Hilcorp Alaska’s pipeline ruptured back in December, causing it to begin releasing an enormous amount of methane into the ocean. Despite the vast quantities, the leak was not reported to the US Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration until frothing and bubbling at the surface of the water was spotted by a helicopter pilot on February 7. EcoWatch reported, “PHMSA said that the natural gas discharge could pose a risk to public safety, the environment and marine mammals and has given Hilcorp until May 1 to permanently repair the line or shut it down.”

BREAKING: 800 Families File Lawsuit Against Saudi Arabia for Role in 9/11

By: Matt Agorist / The Free Thought Project   New York, NY — For the first time in history, families of victims of the 9/11 terror attacks are using a new law and are going after Saudi Arabia in a lawsuit for their role in the attacks. In this landmark lawsuit, the families of 800 victims are suing Saudi Arabia for aiding the hijackers.

For more than a decade and a half, Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush kept secret the alleged role Saudi Arabia played in the September 11 attacks on America. Becuase of the cozy relationship the US has with the terrorist nation, special interests within the government have chosen to protect their Saudi friends instead of telling Americans the truth about what happened that fateful day.

Only because of the vigilance of those seeking the truth is this lawsuit now a reality.

Scientists Cannot Explain Why Humpback Whales Are Displaying This Strange Behaviour

by Jessica Murray, True Activist

Despite the fact that humpback whales are generally solitary creatures, huge groups of them have suddenly begun grouping together just off the coast of South Africa, but no one knows why. Although scientists previously referred to groups of 10 to 20 humpback whales as “large”, groups have now been spotted in numbers from 20 to 200, each weighing about 65,000 pounds, according to recent reports. Even more surprisingly, humpback whales are not usually seen in the region of South Africa, as they migrate up to tropical waters to breed and then typically travel south to the icy waters of Antarctica during this time of the year. Recent scientific expeditions have been regularly sighting these super-pods and compiled their findings into a published journal called PLoS ONE at the beginning of March. Although the researchers have a few vague ideas about the “new” behavior of the humpbacks, these are merely guesses as the true reason why they have congregated in this area is still very unclear.

Sir Patrick Stewart Reveals He Uses Marijuana Daily To Reduce Arthritis Pain

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

The English actor indulges in edibles, ointments, and sprays and says he hasn't experienced one negative side effect from using the product.

Professor X is all about that herb and wasn’t shy to admit so when recently, he disclosed in a statement that he uses cannabis sprays, ointments, and edible products nearly every day to soothe his arthritis. The Telegraph reports that the 76-year-old actor opened up about his use of cannabis to support a project from Oxford University that seeks to explore the medical benefits of the plant.

“Two years ago, in Los Angeles, I was examined by a doctor and given a note which gave me legal permission to purchase, from a registered outlet, cannabis-based products, which I was advised might help the ortho-arthritis in both my hands,” shared Stewart. “This, it would seem, is a genetically-based condition. My mother had badly distorted and painful hands.”

Scientific Studies Reveal How Soil Can Help Depression

by Jessica Murray, True Activist

Spending time gardening releases particular chemicals in the brain.

It’s a commonly known fact that the act of gardening can reduce stress and improve moods, but recent scientific studies have now shown that a particular microorganism that is found in soil can improve wellbeing and even act as an antidepressant. Mycobacterium vaccae is commonly found in soil, and has been proven to activate the release of brain serotonin, according to reports. The chemical serotonin together with dopamine boost immune systems and keep people happy. Both of these chemicals are neurotransmitters, which act as chemical messengers in the brain. dopamine affects emotions, movements and sensations of pleasure and pain, whilst serotonin regulates mood, social behaviour, libido, sleep, memory, and learning. When a person is gardening, M. vaccae is present on the skin when bare hands are in the soil. This is then either inhaled or enters into the bloodstream through any cuts.

The Sale Of GMO Apple Goes Ahead Despite Public Health Concern

by Jessica Murray, True Activist

The apples will not be labeled so there is no way of telling if they are genetically modified or not.

GMO apples have hit the supermarket shelves in the United States, although their labels do not state what they truly are. The roll-out of these apples is said to be a trial run of the new “non-browning” Arctic apple, which has been developed by the Canadian company Okanagan Specialty Fruits, according to reports. The apples are only on sale in ten selected and unnamed stores across the American Midwest. Although the developer of the apples previously announced in a statement that they would be labelling and branding the apple, in fact they will not be labelled as GMO out of a fear that the apples will be “demonised” with a “big GM sticker”.

Activist Replaces Billboards With Pictures Of The Landscapes They Block

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

The project sends an important social message about the necessity to reconnect with the environment.

As one drives down an interstate in the United States, they will undoubtedly be bombarded with advertisements that are hoisted along the side of the road. The loud signs are called billboards, and they’re as obtrusive and obnoxious as they sound, though few think twice about the installations as the method of advertising is as American as apple pie.

One of the main complaints billboards receive is that they block stunning views of nature. It’s for this reason that visual artist Jennifer Bolande decided to take on an ambitious project which entails replacing billboards in the Coachella Valley with images of the mountainous landscape they block.

As TwistedSifter shares, the Visible Distance / Second Sight project sends an important social message about the necessity to reconnect with the environment.

Canadian Journalist Exposes Corporate Media For Reporting Syria Misinformation

Eva continues her campaign to end in the imperialist war in Syria and, in the meantime, continues to expose the hypocrisy and treachery of media outlets.

By: Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post   

Ever since having utterly destroyed a smug mainstream journalist at a UN Summit over corporate media’s claims that they had sources inside East Aleppo, hospital bombings, and other “atrocities” committed by the Assad government, Eva Bartlett has been the subject of a corporate media smear campaign.

Corporate media outlets and their NGO talking heads have maligned her as a “Russian agent,” a “Syrian agent,” and, probably the most ridiculous of all, even a racist (meaning white supremacist). This last one, of course, is a hallmark of the more NGO-funded or mentally handicapped SJW contingency, the usual suspects who compulsively make this accusation. The argument is that saying the alleged “revolution” of bearded jihadist freaks was funded and orchestrated by the West is to deny that Arabs have the ability to orchestrate their own subhuman revolution of savagery. (Yawn.)
