It is with great relief that we announce the following: Monsanto corporation – now a part of Bayer – lost the trial of the century against a man dying of cancer, his cancer alleged to be caused by Roundup herbicide. The corporation was found by a jury to be responsible for all claims and ordered to pay $250 million dollars in punitive damages to school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, who’s life and limb are stricken with deadly lymphoma after years of using Roundup Pro and Ranger Pro.

After weeks of arguments and court deliberations, a San Francisco jury sided with Johnson on Aug 8. As ABC7 reports:

Forty-six-year-old Dewayne Lee Johnson filed the civil suit against the pesticide manufacturer.

Johnson’s attorneys say he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma after spraying Roundup weed killer for two and a half years.

Monsanto released a statement regarding Friday’s verdict:

“We are sympathetic to Mr. Johnson and his family. Today’s decision does not change the fact that more than 800 scientific studies and reviews – and conclusions by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. National Institutes of Health and regulatory authorities around the world – support the fact that glyphosate does not cause cancer, and did not cause Mr. Johnson’s cancer. We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product, which has a 40-year history of safe use and continues to be a vital, effective, and safe tool for farmers and others.” 

The jury had different ideas, however.

They felt that the herbicides did in fact cause his Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and that Monsanto failed to warn him of the risk.

Moreover, the jury found that Monsanto “acted with malice, oppression and fraud.”

This trial is the first of its kind and was allowed to proceed speedily because of Mr. Johnson’s terminal condition.

Our hearts are with Dewayne Johnson and his family during this time of resolution. We certainly hope that the comparatively small compensation is some kind of token of justice, although it can never make up for his suffering.

We also hope that groundskeepers and horticulturalists everywhere will take heed of this story and realize the risks that they unwittingly take.

Social media giant Facebook, which has been embroiled in privacy scandals lately now wants banks to give them your financial information in exchange for their users’ data. Not only have they asked for your nude photos to protect you, they are now asking you to trust them with your banking information.

Facebook has asked the larger United States banks to share detailed financial information about customers as it seeks to boost user engagement and enhance the Messanger app. According to The Wall Street Journal, Facebook increasingly seeks to be a platform where people buy and sell goods and services, in addition to connecting with friends. Over the past year, the social media giant has asked JPMorgan Chase,  Wells Fargo, Citigroup,  and U.S. Bancorp to discuss potential offerings it could host for bank customers on Facebook Messenger.

Facebook has talked about a feature that would show its users their checking-account balances, said people familiar with the matter. It has also pitched fraud alerts, some of the people have said.

These talks are taking place as Facebook faces several investigations over its ties to political analytics firm Cambridge Analytica, which accessed data on as many as 87 million Facebook users without their consent. One large U.S. bank pulled away from talks due to privacy concerns, some of the people said. The ploy is to get people to spend more time on Facebook Messenger.

The company is trying to deepen user engagement as investors shaved more than $120 billion from its market value in one day last month after it said its growth is starting to slow. Facebook said it wouldn’t use the bank data for ad-targeting purposes or share it with third parties.

“We don’t use purchase data from banks or credit card companies for ads,” said spokeswoman Elisabeth Diana. “We also don’t have special relationships, partnerships, or contracts with banks or credit-card companies to use their customers’ purchase data for ads.”

For the last two months, I’ve been warning about the rising risk of a major false flag attack taking place before the mid-term elections. The aggressive, unprecedented PURGE of Alex Jones / InfoWars underscores the desperation of the totalitarian deep state that’s about to make a move to eliminate President Trump and / or steal the elections.

Anyone who believes that the sudden de-platforming of Alex Jones across over a dozen online services and platforms isn’t coordinated collusion is delusional. The coordinated de-platforming effort is clearly directed by the deep state to eliminate a prominent, dissenting voice in preparation for unleashing a history-shaping false flag attack that’s likely going to be bigger than 9/11.

The radical Left is escalating its violence across America, and the tech giants are dramatically escalating their censorship actions to silence all independent voices that might question any “official” narrative. It all points to something big about to come down — something so big that only the official narrative can be allowed to be heard or spoken.

We are living under an Orwellian totalitarian regime beyond any horrific imagination. Google, Apple, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other tech giants are engaged in the most criminal, malicious racketeering and tyranny imaginable. This is not sheer coincidence. They’ve all been ordered to censor the independent media in preparation for what’s coming next. As I explain in this video, the most likely false flag assault to be staged by the Left might be a “mass shooting” at CNN or another media giant, all staged with impressive theatrics to augment the real violence with a false narrative. Watch my entire warning, below:

The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has been asked to testify before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee as part of their Russia investigation, according to a letter signed by Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) posted by the WikiLeaks Twitter account.

The letter was delivered to Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

“As part of the inquiry, the Committee requests that you make yourself available for a closed interview with bipartisan Committee staff at a mutually agreeable time and location,” the letter reads.

WikiLeaks says their legal team is “considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard,” after which the whistleblower organization added a tweet linking to a list of 10 Democratic senators who demanded in late June that Assange’s asylum be revoked in violation of international law.

Recently, Activist Post reported that “The War Is On To Stop The Extradition Of Julian Assange” and that Ecuador and Britain are in high-level discussions over Assange’s situation, according to a report by the Sunday Times of London.

Assange has been arbitrarily detained according to the UN for nearly 6 years in the Ecuadorian embassy. Now Ecuador has expanded that arbitrary detainment to solitary confinement by forbidding Assange from any human contact including visitations, phone calls and barring his Internet usage — all without Assange ever being convicted of a crime besides publishing documents exposing corruption and shedding light on the truth.

In March, Ecuador and its leader Lenín Moreno pulled the plug on Julian Assange’s Internet connection. Then, Ecuador further demanded Assange remove a specific tweet referencing a foreign political prisoner Carles Puigdemont. The irony here is that Ecuador accused Assange of “interfering in a state” for mentioning another political prisoner and Assange himself had more of his own rights taken away.

“In 1940 the elected president of Catalonia, Lluís Companys, was captured by the Gestapo, at the request of Spain, delivered to them and executed. Today, German police have arrested the elected president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, at the request of Spain, to be extradited,” Assange tweeted.

Ecuador has clarified its position on Julian Assange’s asylum by drafting new rules limiting his communications according to WikiLeaks.

Last year, Moreno vowed to stop Assange from revealing further corruption about the United States for the duration of his stay at the embassy, stating he would “gag Assange from revealing further corruption about the U.S.”

Although Moreno claims to support Assange’s asylum, he previously said that he would ask him to “be very delicate when he addresses international politics, especially regarding countries with which we have good relations,” reported Latin American news outlet teleSUR.

It’s interesting to note the former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, who gave Assange asylum is now being threatened with extradition from his current country in Belgium for an unrelated matter dealing with the alleged brief kidnapping of opposition lawmaker Fernando Balda in 2012.

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that the UK’s Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt dared Assange to walk out of the Ecuadorean embassy. He might have said a little too much about an active investigation when he said that Assange was facing “serious charges,” because the article is now absent from News.com.au’s website.

In May, Swedish prosecutors decided to discontinue their investigation into the claims, which Assange denies and he has never been formally charged with.

“Chief Prosecutor Marianne Ny has today decided to discontinue the preliminary investigation regarding suspected rape concerning Julian Assange,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement, as quoted by Reuters.

Charges against Assange in Sweden have been dropped and he is facing only a minor charge in the UK for failing to turn up to a court hearing.

So it is unknown what “serious charges” Hunt was referring to. And this may be why the article was just taken down without notice now displaying a 404 error. It’s worth noting this is exactly what happened when Tommy Robinson stories were demanded to be deleted.

The media is ignoring Assange’s plight with very few articles being circulated about Assange’s situation in the MSM. So much so, that recently Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and investigative reporter John Pilger attacked press coverage of Julian Assange in an interview with Dennis Bernstein and Randy Credico with Consortium News.

We are all Julian Assange … especially journalists, U.S. President Donald Trump has set the atmosphere for the push against fake news and licensing journalists. I guess it’s only ironic that Trump’s administration goes after an organization with a perfect record for revealing the truth.

The precedent that this can set for other journalists and bloggers in the U.S. and abroad is monstrous, and a nightmarish thought. If Assange is extradited to the United States, that’s the subsequent death of Freedom of the Press as well-known human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson QC has previously said.

Events are in the process of being planned worldwide that if something happens to Assange people all over the world are prepared to mobilize and protest in response. That information will be made available if and when the time comes.

This reporter is in a #Unity4J server helping organize the protest efforts both online and off. You can join #Unity4J and help defend Assange’s human rights and publisher rights (here.)

If the UK decides to illegally hand over Julian Assange to the U.S. in violation of two UN rulings, then it’s inevitable that we see a rain of leaks that the world has never seen. That will undoubtedly rock society as WikiLeaks has consistently for 11 years.

There are dozens of insurance files that can seemingly become public with just key phrases. Although, this reporter suspects that WikiLeaks will play a game of chess.

For up-to-date accurate information on Julian Assange’s plight, see @Wikileaks@AssangeMrs, and @Unity4J Twitter accounts. The website Unity4J will be up to date with information, live streams, and places where protests will be held in support of Julian Assange.

Assange has recommended that WikiLeaks supporters use cryptocurrency to donate to the organization in order to circumvent the blockade.

America Uncensored | August 9, 2018

Breaking discovery proves another crazy conspiracy theory to be true.

Prosecutors say a man caught during the raid of a New Mexico compound several days ago, was training children to be school shooters.

As reported by Associated Press:

Prosecutors say in court documents that the father of a missing Georgia boy was training children at a New Mexico compound to commit school shootings.

The documents filed Wednesday say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj (see-DAHJ’ IBN wah-HAJ’) was conducting weapons training at the compound near the Colorado border where 11 hungry children were found in filthy conditions.

Prosecutors filed the documents while asking that Wahhaj be held without bail.

Wahhaj was arrested last week with four other adults. They are facing child abuse charges.

Authorities say the remains of a boy also were found on the compound but have not been positively identified by a medical examiners.




And now on CBS:

More to come as details unfold.
