Bank of America Seizes E-Commerce Funds of Online Gun Parts Retailer, Says They ‘Shouldn’t Sell’ Guns

January 11, 2013 Leave a comment

‘It seems that gun bias is deepening in some sectors of American society, even enticing some firms to break the law – or, at the very least, abuse the law – in order to pursue their anti-Second Amendment agenda.

That certainly seems to be the case with Bank of America, which has reportedly seized the e-commerce funds of a legitimate gun maker for no reason other than to oppose the fact that the company sells firearms and ammunition online.’

Drug Companies Pushing to Replace Nutrition with Pharmaceuticals; Take Your Medications Even if You Have No Symptoms


Monday, 01 October 2012

‘Medications are nutrition. That’s essentially the rationale behind a couple of Big Pharma corporations’ decision to give a failed Alzheimer’s drug a second chance.

In early August, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson said they were ending large-scale clinical trials of their experimental drug bapineuzumab in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease, because patients taking it did not show signs of improved memory or thinking skills.

That was disappointing to millions of Alzheimer’s sufferers and their families, though the results of the trials were all but expected by researchers and investors who believed the drug had little chance to succeed.’

Monsanto Promises Pain to EU, Assault Underway


Friday, 13 July 2012

‘Since the introduction of genetically modified (GM) crops into the food supply in the mid-1990s, the European Union has generally resisted allowing these crops to be planted in member countries. This resistance has primarily been due to the fact that there is much debate over the potential harm that GM crops could do to the environment and other non-GM crops, and the potential harm that food containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) may do to humans.

This resistance seems to be weakening, however, no doubt due to persistent pressure from Monsanto, the world’s leading biotechnology firm, and Monsanto’s many allies in the U.S. government.’

The Bank of England Told Us to Do It, Claims Barclays


Thursday, 05 July 2012

‘A memo published by Barclays suggested that Paul Tucker gave a hint to Bob Diamond, the bank’s chief executive, in 2008 that the rate it was claiming to be paying to borrow money from other banks could be lowered.

His suggestion followed questions from “senior figures within Whitehall” about why Barclays was having to pay so much interest on its borrowings, the memo states.

Barclays and other banks have been accused of artificially manipulating the Libor rate, which is used to set the borrowing costs for millions of consumers, businesses and investors, by falsely stating how much they were paying to borrow money.’

Banking Scandal: How Document Trail Reveals Global Scam

Monday, 02 July 2012

‘The interest rate rigging scandal that has engulfed Barclays was the result of a coordinated attempt at collusion by traders working for a coterie of leading banks over at least five years, according to a series of lawsuits and legal rulings filed in courts in Asia and North America.

The lawsuits allege the fraud was extensive, spanning at least three continents and involving trades worth tens of billions of pounds. The allegations raise further serious questions about the banks’ ability to police themselves and the role of senior management in monitoring the activities of their employees.

In a 28-page statement of facts relating to last week’s revelation that Barclays had been fined a total of £290m, the US Department of Justice discloses how a network of traders working on both sides of the Atlantic conspired to influence both the Libor and Euribor interest rates – the rates at which banks lend to each other. It was, in effect, a worldwide conspiracy against the free functioning of the market.’

‘According to two Merck scientists who filed a False Claims Act complaint in 2010 — a complaint which has just now been unsealed — vaccine manufacturer Merck knowingly falsified its mumps vaccine test data, spiked blood samples with animal antibodies, sold a vaccine that actually promoted mumps and measles outbreaks, and ripped off governments and consumers who bought the vaccine thinking it was “95% effective.”‘
