Brazil: This Motorbike Runs on WATER!

  • Published on Jul 20, 2015
    A motorcycle able to travel up to 500 kilometres (310 miles) on a litre of water was trumpeted by creator Ricardo Azevedo in Sao Paulo, Monday. Called the ‘T Power H20,’ the design features a combination of water and a single, external car battery used to produce electricity and separate the hydrogen from the water molecule. The process, involving a pipe-system, results in combustion which subsequently creates the energy necessary to power the bike.

Brazilian Bloodbath: Currency Halted, Futures Crash, Bonds Tumble Most On Record

  • Brazilian Bloodbath: Currency Halted, Futures Crash, Bonds Tumble Most On Record
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    As first reported last night, Brazil has plunged back into yet another political crisis less than a year after the impeachment of Dilma Rouseff, when a report in Brazil’s O Globo newspaper revealed that President Michel Temer was involved in an “hush money” cover-up scheme involving the jailed former speaker of the lower house of Congress, Eduardo Cunha, who was the mastermind behind the impeachment of Rouseff.

    Already an impeachment request against Temer has been filed by the opposition, although it was unclear who would replace him or what the process would look like. If Temer resigns or is impeached, Congress would elect an interim president until the next scheduled vote in October of 2018. An early election could only be held with a constitutional amendment approved by lawmakers.

Tensions Rise As US Announces Military Drills Near Embattled Venezuela

http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisaracket.html

Useful Idiots: “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” ~ Henry Kissinger (Council of 12/13?).

Invasion begins!

  • Tensions Rise As US Announces Military Drills Near Embattled Venezuela
    by , http://theantimedia.org/
    (MPNThe involvement of the U.S. military in an upcoming multilateral military drill in South America has raised concerns over potential ulterior motives on the part of the U.S. The drill, dubbed “Operation: America United,” will involve the installation of a temporary military base on the triple border shared by the drill’s other participating nations: Peru, Brazil and Colombia.

    According to Theofilo de Oliveira, the top general of the Brazilian Armed Forces, the U.S. military will carry out the drill along with the three Latin American nations this November over a period of ten days. The Brazilian military has asserted that the objective of the exercise is to “ develop greater knowledge, share experiences and develop mutual trust.” Brazilian government officials have strongly denied rumors that the exercise will lead to the establishment of a multinational military base in the Amazon.

    The U.S. was invited to participate by Brazil’s unelected president Michel Temer, who has notably boosted Brazilian military spending by 36 percent while simultaneously freezing public spending for two decades through a controversial constitutional amendment.

    A friendly relationship with Brazil’s military is key for the U.S.’ strategic interest in South America. As Hector Luis Saint Pierre – coordinator of international security, defense and strategy at the Brazilian Association of International Relations – told the BBC: “Brazil is a strategic partner for the doctrine of the military. If the United States has a good relationship with the Brazilian navy, it is easier to spread its message among the military in the region.”

    Pierre pointed out that the drill is of particular interest to the U.S., as it presents an opportunity to focus on the political situation in Venezuela. According to Telesur, President Donald Trump has already met with the presidents of Peru and Colombia to discuss the U.S.’ interest in Venezuela.

    As MintPress has previously reported, Venezuela has been the target of ongoing economic warfare as the U.S. continues to disrupt the leftist government first brought to power by the late Hugo Chávez. While Nicolás Maduro – Chávez’s successor – certainly bears some of the blame for Venezuela’s current situation, the U.S. has worked to covertly devastate the Venezuelan economy through a combination of sanctions and oil price manipulation.

After Terrorizing America with Zika Scaremongering, Washington Post Now Admits Zika Virus Doesn’t Cause Brain Deformities After All

Zika-Virus-a-Hoax

  • After Terrorizing America with Zika Scaremongering, Washington Post Now Admits Zika Virus Doesn’t Cause Brain Deformities After All
    by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, http://www.naturalnews.com/ 
    (NaturalNews) The entire leftist media is not merely dishonest and corrupt, their science writers are unbelievably stupid and ill-informed about nearly everything in the natural world. Today, after months of printing fear-inducing “Zika terrorism” stories that scared America half to death while convincing the government to funnel billions of dollars into Zika vaccine research for Big Pharma, the Washington Post now admits it had no idea what it was talking about.

    But rather than admitting its own science writers were scientifically illiterate propagandists pushing quack narratives as news, the paper now blames other scientists for the gross error by publishing a headline that’s once again dishonest and deceptive: “Scientists are bewildered by Zika’s path across Latin America,” it proclaims.

    Bewildered about “Zika’s path?” The story headline should actually read, “Zika HOAX revealed… it doesn’t cause brain damage after all.” (Read it at this link.)

    Washington Post has been shamelessly pushing the Zika HOAX for months… with no apology to readers
    In the story, writers Dom Phillips and Nick Miroff essentially reveal that what the Washington Post has been writing about the Zika virus has been based entirely in government propaganda and pandemic lies pushed by the CDC, which of course has close ties to the criminal vaccine industry:

    Nearly nine months after Zika was declared a global health emergency, the virus has infected at least 650,000 people in Latin America and the Caribbean, including tens of thousands of expectant mothers.

    But to the great bewilderment of scientists, the epidemic has not produced the wave of fetal deformities so widely feared when the images of misshapen infants first emerged from Brazil.


    Yes, the Washington Post now says the scientists are “bewildered” that their apocalyptic scare stories that caused female athletes to skip out on the Rio Olympics and scared tens of millions of Americans into poisoning themselves with DEET (a neurotoxic chemical) turned out to be total hogwash. DEET, by the way, combines with carbamate class pesticides to cause neurological dysfunction in humans, which coincidentally increases the number of people who watch CNN or read the Washington Post.

    For the record, no one who reads Natural News is surprised by this revelations that has left mainstream scientists “bewildered.” It’s not bewildering to me. I called Zika a total hoax from day one, pointing out that the brain deformities were caused by larvacide chemicals dumped into the water supply, not by Zika. See some of my stories that clearly spelled all this out months before the Washington Post had any clue what they were writing about:

Zika: Brazil Admits It’s Not the Virus that Causes Microcephaly

Microcephaly

  • “This gives a consistent interpretation that there is no direct link between Zika and microcephaly except for random co-occurrence.”
    – According to NECSI:8
  • Zika: Brazil Admits It’s Not the Virus that Causes Microcephaly
    by Dr. Mercola, http://www.mercola.com/ 
    Amidst growing fear-based propaganda warning of the threat of Zika virus comes a quiet admission from health officials in Brazil: Zika alone may not be responsible for the rise in birth defects that plagued parts of the country.

    While there is some (limited) evidence suggesting Zika virus may be linked to the birth defect microcephaly, and the virus has been spreading throughout Brazil, rates of the condition have only risen to very high rates in the northeast section of Brazil.

    Since the virus has spread throughout Brazil, but extremely high rates of microcephaly have not, officials are now being forced to admit that something else is likely at play.

    Dr. Fatima Marinho, director of information and health analysis at Brazil’s ministry of health, told the journal Nature, “We suspect that something more than Zika virus is causing the high intensity and severity of cases.”1

    Nearly 90 Percent of Brazil Microcephaly Cases Occurred in the Northeast
    Since last November, more than 1,700 confirmed cases of congenital microcephaly or other birth defects of the central nervous system have been reported in Brazil.

    When the cases first began and were reportedly linked to Zika virus, health officials believed they’d see “an explosion of birth defects” across Brazil, according to Marinho.2 But that hasn’t happened.

    Data compiled by Marinho and colleagues, which has been submitted for publication, suggest socio-economic factors may be involved. Most of the women who gave birth to babies with microcephaly were poor and lived in small cities or on the outskirts of big cities.

    In addition, the outbreak occurred in a largely poverty-stricken agricultural area of Brazil that uses large amounts of banned pesticides.

    Between these factors and the lack of sanitation and widespread vitamin A and zinc deficiency, you have the basic framework for an increase in poor health outcomes among newborn infants in that area.

    Environmental pollution and toxic pesticide exposure have been positively linked to a wide array of adverse health effects, including birth defects. For instance:

    Vitamin A deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of microcephaly3
    • The CDC lists malnutrition and exposure to toxic chemicals as known risk factors4
    • The CDC also notes certain infections during pregnancy, including rubella, cytomegalovirus, toxoplasmosis and others, are risk factors


    Data Is Lacking to Confirm Zika-Microcephaly Link
    It’s also been suggested that microcephaly may be the result of Zika virus occurring alongside other infections, such as dengue and chikungunya.

    The Brazilian doctor who first reportedly established the link between Zika virus and microcephaly is even considering whether another disease, Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), may be involved, as BVDV proteins were also detected in the brains of three fetuses with microcephaly.

    BVDV causes birth defects in cattle but is not known to infect people. Researchers suggested that infection with Zika virus may make it easier for BVDV to infect humans.5

    Adding to the complexities, much of the microcephaly data from Brazil comes from incomplete hospital reports. In most cases, tests to confirm Zika infection were not carried out.

    In June 2016, the Zika in Infants and Pregnancy Study was launched in Puerto Rico. It aims to monitor up to 10,000 pregnant women to examine Zika virus along with nutritional, socio-economic and environmental factors and their potential link to birth defects. However, the results of a similar study have only raised further doubts.

    12,000 Zika Cases Confirmed in Pregnant Colombian Women — Zero Microcephaly Cases
    According to a report by the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), there are serious questions about whether Zika virus is the cause of microcephaly. They cite the preliminary results of a New England Journal of Medicine study, which followed nearly 12,000 pregnant Colombian women infected with Zika virus.6

    NECSI also suggested, “An alternative cause of microcephaly in Brazil could be the pesticide pyriproxyfen, which is cross-reactive with retinoic acid, which causes microcephaly, and is being used in drinking water.”10

  • Another US-Sponsored Coup? Brazil’s New President Was An Embassy Informant For US Intelligence
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com  
    When we explained yesterday the next steps in the Dilma Rousseff impeachment process, we predicted that “Brazil’s problems are only just starting” for several reasons, chief among them being that the man who is now Brazil’s next active president, Michel Temer, is almost as unpopular as the president he is replacing, and is stained by scandals of his own.

    As AP noted, “Michel Temer, who hasn’t won an election on his own in a decade, is famed as a backstage wheeler-dealer, and his critics say he’s leading the plot to replace his boss, embattled President Dilma Rousseff.” And with Temer now the acting president, the AP frames the big question as follows: can he avoid ouster himself

    Among his documented transgressions, he signed off on some of the allegedly illegal budget measures that led to the impeachment drive against Rousseff and has been implicated, though never charged, in several corruption investigations.

    Best was AP’s snide addition that “the son of Lebanese immigrants, Temer is one of the country’s least popular politicians but has managed to climb his way to the top, in large part by building close relationships with fellow politicians as leader of the large but fractured Brazilian Democratic Movement Party.

    However, as much as we would like to believe that Temer is simply the real world version of Frank Underwood, there is a much simpler explanation for the 75-year-old’s dramatic ascent to the peak of Brazil’s power elite.

    As it turns out, the Temer presidency may be nothing more than the latest manifestation of the US state department’s implementation of yet another puppet government. We know this because earlier today, Wikileaks released evidence via a declassified cable that Brazil’s new interim president was an embassy informant for US intelligence and military.

MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH: Hemp Cannabidiol (CBD) Product Approved by Brazilian Government for Treatment of Cancer

Cannabis_Cures_Cancer_BigPharma_Patent

  • Apparently, the Brazilian government agrees with people like me: Cannabis cures cancer. So, for all those of you who gave me a hard time about cancer cures: the jokes on you buddy. Am I giving false hope or are you a totally deceived useful idiot?
  • MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH: Hemp Cannabidiol (CBD) Product Approved by Brazilian Government for Treatment of Cancer
    by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, http://www.naturalnews.com/ 
    (NaturalNews) In a stunning medical breakthrough for humanity, a hemp cannabidiol (CBD) product from Medical Marijuana, Inc. has been approved by the government of Brazil as a treatment for cancer. The product, called Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO), is also approved by Brazil as a prescription medication for epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and chronic pain.

    This move puts Brazil far ahead of the United States in the realm of compassionate, safe, affordable medicine that can treat serious medical conditions such as cancer. “We have the utmost respect for the Brazilian government that decided hemp CBD oil should be available to their people, for a variety of reasons,” said Stuart W. Titus, PhD and Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc. “Brazil is a shining example of how a national government has responded to humanitarian interests and has swiftly and diligently passed favorable legislation on behalf of the health and well-being of its people – children in particular.”

    The corrupt U.S. government only seeks to protect the profits of Big Pharma and its opioid drugs
    The U.S. federal government, in contrast, seeks solely to protect the profits of Big Pharma at all costs. Medical marijuana continues to be criminalized at the federal level as a tactic to protect the highly lucrative opioid prescription drug market that enriches the pharmaceutical corporations. Meanwhile, an epidemic of opioid drug deaths is sweeping across America and recently claimed the life of the popular musician and performer known as Prince.

    “Today, any resident of Brazil who has a government-approved medical indication can have access to RSHO hemp oil products and may do so with both a doctor’s prescription and government-approved import documentation,” reads a press release announcing Medical Marijuana, Inc’s partnership with HempMeds Brasil.

    Laboratory tested and verified
    CBD and hemp products are notorious for being counterfeit or contaminated. Because the hemp industry exists in a “Wild West” atmosphere, some hemp growers use toxic pesticides, herbicides and extraction solvents to create their hemp products. In contrast, Medical Marijuana, Inc. works with a laboratory to quantitate and validate the CBD content of its products.
