Craig Bartmer Says 911 Was an Inside Job

Former NYPD Officer Craig Bartmer was a 9/11 First Responder and a committed worker at Ground Zero. He, like many others who worked to clean Ground Zero, has developed respiratory illnesses as a result of the toxic dust inhaled at the site. Also like many others who were physically affected by the attacks, Craig Bartmer is now combating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In this interview he details his eyewitness account of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7. He also speaks out against the official 9/11 story, the lies told by the EPA about the air quality at Ground Zero and the critical need for a fresh independent investigation into the 9/11 attacks.

Debunker Debunked: Blacksmith Unwittingly Proves Controlled Demolition-AE911Truth Statement


“The truth is, before 9/11, the term global collapse didn’t even exist. Buildings survived fires, plane crashes, earthquakes, terrorist attacks, botched demolitions and even nuclear explosions. Never, before or after 9/11, have we seen such catastrophic failures.” MacQueen

The following statement was released by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth on December 18, 2015.

Viral 9/11 Truth-Debunking Blacksmith Gets It All Wrong


Much hay has been made in recent days about a YouTube video posted by a blacksmith named Trenton Tye, who tries to debunk the theory that the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7 were destroyed by controlled demolition.
Within the first two days of being posted, Tye’s video received five million views and was covered by the Washington Post, the Daily Mirror, and the Huffington Post — the latter with the celebratory headline, “Metal Worker Shuts Down 9/11 Truthers… With His Pinkie.”
In fact, Tye's attempt to disprove controlled demolition by heating a half-inch piece of steel to 1,800°F and bending it like a “noodle” is way off. He seems to think the controlled demolition argument goes like this, “Fire can’t melt steel, so the buildings couldn’t have collapsed from fire.” He couldn’t be more mistaken.
The only reason that melting steel is discussed at all is because government officials, engineers, first responders, and others observed large amounts of molten metal (requiring temperatures of more than 2,800°F) in the debris of all three buildings.
Tye’s sixth-grade-level demonstration that structural steel loses strength at 1,800°F does nothing to address the presence of molten metal at Ground Zero. If anything, Tye proves that the fires in the World Trade Center could not have generated the molten metal that witnesses saw. What did? The only plausible explanation is thermite, an incendiary that can be used to cut through structural steel.
Putting aside the molten metal, Tye’s demonstration is wholly irrelevant for the simple reason that the fires in the World Trade Center could not have heated the structure anywhere near as high as the 1,800°F to which Tye heated his piece of steel using a furnace.
Jet fuel fires reach temperatures of around 1,500°F only under optimal conditions. In open air conditions like the WTC buildings, they burn at around 600°F. Even according to the government agency that investigated the disaster, there is no evidence that any of the steel was heated to the point where it would lose its strength.
There have been literally hundreds of hotter, larger, longer-lasting fires in steel-frame high-rises over the last century, and never has one caused the total collapse of a building. Tye’s simplistic logic implies that many of these infernos should have led to a total collapse. Of course, none has — and that also goes for the three steel-frame high-rises that were destroyed on 9/11.
Click Pic to Enlarge
That this YouTube video has become an overnight sensation testifies to the alarming lack of journalistic rigor and scientific acumen with which the media has approached the debate surrounding the World Trade Center destruction on 9/11 — and to the rampant misinformation that has followed.
We encourage anyone who thinks there might be some validity to Tye’s confused science experiment to visit AE911Truth.org and to read our most recent publication, Beyond Misinformation: What Science Says About the Destruction of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7, for real expert analysis of the evidence.

Coast To Coast AM - December 21, 2015 The Christmas Alien & Alternative Health

In the first half, Dr. Peter Glidden, who has over 25 years of education, training, and experience in holistic medicine, discussed how to use natural remedies and supplements to maintain health and even recover from debilitating conditions. Sadly, due to a lack of pragmatic medical advice, the things many people do for their health are usually counterproductive, even though they have the best intentions, he remarked. And the last 10 years of most people's lives are often not that great, he continued. "It's the golden years brought to you by conventional medicine," with the elderly needing prescription medicines to wake up, to fall asleep, to manage their blood pressure, and heartburn, as well as an additional prescription to manage all the side effects of the other medications. Conventional medical doctors are trained how to manage patients' symptoms rather than bring about good health, he added.

Regarding evaluating whether a specific nutritional supplement is working for you, Glidden said that after a 90-day trial period, if you don't get any noticeable results, you should abandon it and try something else. Heartburn and insomnia are both related to calcium deficiencies, whereas magnesium and selenium are good supplements for heart health, he reported. Cholesterol is actually important for health, "and we have been led down the goose path by the pharmaceutical industry for the last 40 years," who have demonized this natural body substance, he asserted.

100 Year Old Christmas List From A 7 Year Old Boy Shows How Materialistic Our Society Has Become


Where did we go wrong?

Michael Snyder | End Of The American Dream - December 22, 2015

If there were no presents at all, would you still want to celebrate Christmas?

100 years ago, a little seven-year-old boy named Homer Mellen sent Santa Claus a letter asking for “a box of paints, also a nine cent reader, and a school bag to put them in.” And he added that if Santa happened to have “any nuts, or candy, or toys to spare” that he would love to have some. My, how times have changed. Today, nearly all of us expect to be showered with presents on Christmas morning, and then almost immediately people begin posting photos of their “Christmas loot” on social media websites such as Facebook. And as you will see below, the “Rich Kids of Instagram” have taken boasting about wealth to an extreme that nobody has ever seen before. Our society has become deeply, deeply materialistic, and whatever “meaning” Christmas once may have had has become almost completely lost at this point.

When I first came across this 100 year old Christmas list, I was quite stunned. First of all, this young boy was able to express himself far better than most seven-year-old boys can today. Secondly, his letter to Santa reflected a sense of humility and thoughtfulness that is extremely rare in this day and age. In case you cannot read the letter that I have posted below, here is what it says
“Dear Santa Claus,” the boy begins in cursive handwriting. “Will you please send me a box of paints, also a nine cent reader, and a school bag to put them in.”

He modestly continues, “And if you have any nuts, or candy, or toys to spare, would you kindly send me some.” If so, Homer concludes, “You will please a seven year old boy.”

The Mellen family kept and cherished this note for 98 years in a little box containing “private little things like locks of hair, or the first picture that was taken,” Mellen explained, in order to “put away for memories for grandchildren.”
100 Year Old Christmas List - Homer Mellen

I don’t know about you, but that letter touched my heart, and it made me long for an era that has long since passed away.

In 2015, things are very different. Most people spend the month of December eagerly anticipating all of the stuff that they are about to get, and this is ingrained in our children from a very early age.

If you don’t think that this is true, just spend some time on the “Rich Kids Of Instagram” Tumblr page this holiday season. You will see example after example of rich kids boasting about the stuff they hauled in over their holidays.

To these young adults, Christmas is far better when you are rich. And from a worldly perspective, it is hard to argue with their logic. Just check out how “rich kid” Serena Marron spent her holiday season last year
Need a break from parties? Spare a thought for Serena Marron, who is waking up after a week of uninterrupted revelry that started at lunchtime on Boxing Day.

That was when the 20-something student, who lives in New York, stepped off a private jet on the holiday island of St Kitts in the Caribbean and took up residence on a 62m motor yacht called the Apogee.

The next week saw her spend her days lying on the deck of the yacht (which costs £350,000 a week to charter) and nights flexing her Wall Street financier father Donald’s credit card inexclusive bars, restaurants and nightclubs.

In just two days, Serena and friends lunched at the £300-a-head Hotel Isle de France on St Barths, drank £150 fishbowl cocktails at the Le Thi nightclub and knocked back £400-a- bottle champagne at Nikki Beach bar.

She ended this bender shortly before dawn yesterday, posing bleary-eyed at £3,000-a-night Villa Rockstar at the Eden Roc hotel.
Does that sound like any Christmas that you have ever had?

And check out how 20-year-old “rich kid” Evan Luthra spends his dough
Another major spender is self-made millionaire Evan Luthra, who boasts 126,000 Instagram fans.

‘I go to clubs and spend maybe $20,000 (£14,000) a night on alcohol or charter a yacht for $50,000 (£33,000) day,’ he said.

The 20-year-old who lives in LA has been developing apps since the age of 12 and the wealth he’s amassed allows him to travel around by helicopter.

‘One of the services I have, it’s like Uber for helicopter,’ he revealed. ‘You press the button and they give you a helicopter near you in five minutes.’

In his downtime, Evan likes to hire a yacht and post an invitation on his Instagram account for people to join him.
Within an hour he’ll have 20 girls texting him, eager to come along.
Where did these young people learn to act this way?

The truth is that this is what our society glorifies, and most of our young adults would act like this if they had enough money to do so.

As it is, the average American will spend 830 dollars on Christmas this year. Most people pile up lots of debt on their credit cards buying lots of useless stuff, and much of it will just end up sitting on a shelf somewhere taking up space. But most Americans do this year after year because society tells them that this is what they need to do in order to be happy.

Of course the truth is that most people do not find happiness during the Christmas season. In fact, the rate of suicide spikes to the highest level of the entire year during “the holidays”, and one survey found that 45 percent of all Americans say that they dread the Christmas season.
Where did we go wrong?

If Christmas really is all about stuff, what does that mean for those that cannot afford to buy much? Are their holidays “worse” than those that have a lot of money for presents?

It is often said that “whoever dies with the most toys wins”, but I totally disagree with that. Our lives are not about the stuff that we accumulate, and we can’t take any of it with us when we die. Instead, our lives should be about loving God and loving each other.

Rather than teaching our children to greedily look forward to all of the goodies they are going to get on Christmas morning, what if we taught them to try to be people of great love?

How different would our society look?

Just something for you to think about as you and your family enjoy “the holiday season”…

Many US primary care docs feel unprepared for complex cases: survey

December 8, 2015 by Karen Pallarito, Healthday Reporter

(HealthDay)—Compared to their international peers, doctors on the front lines of U.S. medicine feel they aren't prepared to treat the sickest patients, a new survey finds.

 Nearly one in four U.S. primary care doctors said their practices aren't well-prepared to care for patients with complex medical needs. In both Germany and the Netherlands, just 12 percent of primary care doctors reported that their practices weren't well-prepared.

The United States has the highest incidence of chronic disease in the 10-nation survey. Yet, on many measures of care management, the United States ranks in the middle or bottom of the pack.
"We need a strong primary care infrastructure and we don't have it, and we haven't had it for a long time, and it's actually getting worse," said Dr. David Blumenthal, president of The Commonwealth Fund.

The survey was published in the December issue of Health Affairs.

In many countries with strong primary care systems, doctors act as gatekeepers, and nurses and care managers help manage complex patients, explained study lead author Robin Osborn, a vice president at The Commonwealth Fund.

Study co-author Eric Schneider, senior vice president of The Commonwealth Fund, said better primary care requires better teamwork.

The new survey culled data from more than 11,000 primary care physicians in Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

In the United States, primary care doctors include general and family physicians, internists and pediatricians.

The report exposed gaps in care coordination, communication, access to care and use of information technology across the 10 industrialized nations.

Only one in three U.S. doctors says he or she is always notified when a patient is discharged from the hospital or seen in the emergency department. The Netherlands leads all nations on those measures, with two in three doctors saying they hear from the hospital or emergency department.

In the Netherlands and Great Britain, more than 80 percent of doctors frequently make home care visits; in the United States, only 6 percent do so.

In nine of the 10 surveyed countries, doctors said they feel least prepared to manage severe mental health and substance abuse problems. Confidence levels are lowest in the United States and Sweden, with fewer than one in six saying they are well-prepared.

"We really operate in different silos," said Dr. Nitin Damle, a private practice physician in Wakefield, R.I., and president of the American College of Physicians. "We have the behavioral health system and we have the medical system and, really, the two don't communicate that well," he said.

The survey points out other shortfalls and barriers to better patient care:
  • Fewer than half of U.S. doctors feel prepared to manage patients with dementia (47 percent), those needing palliative care (41 percent) and people needing home care (46 percent).
  • Only 39 percent of U.S. primary care doctors said their practices arrange for patients to see a doctor or nurse after hours without having to visit the emergency department, and that was the lowest percentage among the 10 countries surveyed.
  • More than half of U.S. doctors said time spent on insurance issues is a major problem, a feeling shared by their colleagues in Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland—all countries that have multi-payer private insurance systems.
  • Primary care doctors in the United States are least likely to feel the health care system works well, needing only minor changes. Only 16 percent agreed with that statement.
There were a few bright spots in the survey. Having made major strides in the adoption of electronic medical records in recent years, 57 percent of U.S. primary care doctors said patients can communicate with them by e-mail. Sixty percent—substantially more than in any other country—said patients can access their medical records electronically.

The study authors called for continued experimentation with new care delivery and payment models.
Damle, who is also a clinical assistant professor of medicine at Brown University's Alpert School of Medicine in Providence, said assembling teams of providers to manage chronic-care patients requires a lot of money.

"That's a major stumbling block to any of this really happening," he said. "We need to be adequately reimbursed to provide these services."

Two states to allow pharmacists to prescribe birth control

(HealthDay)—California and Oregon will soon implement groundbreaking laws that enable women to get contraceptives from pharmacists without a doctor's prescription.

This will make it easier for millions of women to have access to birth control, and public health advocates hope similar measures will be introduced across the country, The New York Times reported.
In California and Oregon, pharmacists will be able to prescribe contraceptives after women provide information about their health and medical histories.

Contraceptives prescribed by pharmacists will be covered by insurance, as they are now, The Times reported.

New Evidence of Harm from Fluoridation

Today we begin a series of bulletins looking back on 2015. We hope these summaries will provide you and other campaigners with useful ammunition in the efforts ahead in 2016. The first retrospective will be from Fluoride Action Network’s Campaign Manager Stuart Cooper who will summarize the new evidence of harm from fluoridation. Before we get to this here is an update on our fundraiser.

Over the weekend we received $3,020 from 17 donors bringing our grand total to $65,847 from 280 supporters. This means that we need to raise just over $9,000 to reach our mini-goal of $75,000 by midnight Dec 24. A few days ago this was looking impossible, now with your generous help I think we can do this. To speed us on our way we have two pledges:
One super-angel will donate another $600 when we reach 300 donors. Another will TRIPLE each donation today (up to a total of $1000). This means that for the first few donations that arrive each $ you donate will be worth THREE $ to us!  
See donation details and our “12-days of Christmas Competition" update after Stuart's article.

 Looking back on 2015, part 1:  More Evidence of Harm From Fluoridation
Scientific reports continue to show the potential for significant adverse effects from the obsolete practice of water fluoridation.  The scientific, medical, and ethical case against fluoridation is already very strong.  And just when you thought the evidence against the practice couldn’t get any more damning, several new studies and reviews were published in 2015 that ought to bring us significantly closer to consigning fluoridation to the history books once and for all.  

1. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

A new study--the first to systemically look at the relationship between a behavioral disorder and fluoridation--was published in February linking fluoridation to ADHD in the United States.  The study entitled, “Exposure to fluoridated water and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder prevalence among children and adolescents in the United States: an ecological association,” was published in the journal Environmental Health.  The authors, psychologists Christine Till and Ashley Malin at Toronto’s York University, discovered that states with a higher rate of artificially fluoridated water had a higher prevalence of ADHD.  According to the authors:

“State prevalence of artificial water fluoridation in 1992 significantly positively predicted state prevalence of ADHD in 2003, 2007 and 2011, even after controlling for socioeconomic status.

A multivariate regression analysis showed that after socioeconomic status was controlled each 1% increase in artificial fluoridation prevalence in 1992 was associated with approximately 67,000 to 131,000 additional ADHD diagnoses from 2003 to 2011. Overall state water fluoridation prevalence (not distinguishing between fluoridation types) was also significantly positively correlated with state prevalence of ADHD for all but one year examined.

Conclusions: Parents reported higher rates of medically-diagnosed ADHD in their children in states in which a greater proportion of people receive fluoridated water from public water supplies." 
 
2. Hypothyroidism
 
Also in February, a major new fluoridation study was published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health--a British Medical Journal publication.  The study, entitled “Are fluoride levels in drinking water associated with hypothyroidism prevalence in England?  A large observational study of GP practice data and fluoride levels in drinking water,” is the first study to ever look at fluoridation and hypothyroidism in a large population (in this case, England).  

It found a relatively strong and statistically significant effect, with General Practice (GP) areas being 62% more likely to have high rates of diagnosed hypothyroidism if their drinking water fluoride levels were above 0.7ppm compared to areas with fluoride levels below 0.3ppm.  This was after researchers had accounted for key confounders, which are other factors that influence hypothyroid rates.

In an additional comparison of two large metropolitan regions, one that is artificially fluoridated at a level of about 1.0 ppm (greater Birmingham area), and the other which is nearby and similar demographics but is not artificially fluoridated (greater Manchester), the study found a 94% greater probability that GPs in fluoridated Birmingham would have high hypothyroidism rates compared to Manchester. 

For all of England, the prevalence rate of hypothyroidism was almost 10% greater in those GPs with higher fluoride levels compared to those with lowest levels.

The findings led to the researchers calling for a “rethink of public health policy to fluoridate the water supply,” adding “consideration needs to be given to reducing fluoride exposure, and public dental health interventions should stop [those] reliant on ingested fluoride and switch to topical fluoride-based and non-fluoride-based interventions.”

According to FAN’s Science Director, Chris Neurath, “Scientific and medical research stretching back to the 1920s has shown that fluoride can affect the thyroid.  The levels of fluoride exposure known to lower thyroid function overlap with the levels of exposure known to occur in some people drinking artificially fluoridated water.  Hypothyroidism is a very common disorder in the U.S.  It can have serious adverse health effects.  Reduced thyroid function in pregnant women is linked to reduced IQ in their children.  There is accumulating evidence that fluoride, at levels within the range fluoridated populations are exposed to, is associated with lowered IQ.  Fluoride's effect on thyroid function might be the mechanism by which it lowers IQ.”

The article notes that "thyroid dysfunction is a common endocrine disorder..."  The first time fluoride was labeled an endocrine disrupter was in the 2006 landmark report of the National Research Council of the National Academies. According to the National Institutes of Health, “Research shows that endocrine disruptors may pose the greatest risk during prenatal and early postnatal development when organ and neural systems are forming.” As far as we know, promoters pushing fluoridation have never referred to this ominous label. 

For more information, please also see: 
3. New IQ Study Links Fluorosis to Neurotoxicity

There are over 100 animal experiments linking fluoride consumption to a decrease in IQ.  There are also 31 animal experiments out of 33 that investigated animal behavior that showed learning and memory problems associated with fluoride consumption, and 49out of 56 human studies have shown that modest levels of fluoride negatively affect IQ.  A team from Harvard School of Public Health recently reviewed 27 of these studies.  26 of these studies showed a decrease in IQ (an average drop of 7 points), and the average fluoride level in the water for 20 of these studies was only 3.2 ppm, which is lower than the current safe drinking standard in the U.S. for fluoride of 4.0ppm.  Knowing this, it should come as no surprise that a new study on fluoride’s impact on IQ further proves the neurotoxicity of the drinking water additive.

This new pilot study in China, Association of lifetime exposure to fluoride and cognitive functions in Chinese children: A pilot study, (by Choi AL, et al. 2015) published in Neurotoxicology and Teratology was carried out at fluoride levels, which overlap levels used in U.S. fluoridation programs. They didn’t measure IQ specifically in this study but reported the results of a very simple test: the child’s ability to repeat a sequence of numbers both forwards and backwards. Even children with very mild dental fluorosis performed poorer on this specific mental development test, than children without fluorosis. One of the experts involved in this study was Dr. David Bellinger who is world famous for his studies on lead’s neurotoxicity.

Another co-author was Dr. Philippe Grandjean and in an editorial on his website “Chemical Brain Drain” he used this study to counteract the claim from proponents that the IQ findings were not relevant to the fluoride levels used in water fluoridation. For the children in this study, Grandjean writes:
“Their lifetime exposures to fluoride from drinking water covered the full range allowed in the US. Among the findings, children with fluoride-induced mottling of their teeth – even the mildest forms that appears as whitish specks on the enamel – showed lower performance on some neuropsychological tests. This observation runs contrary to popular wisdom that the enamel effects represent a cosmetic problem only and not a sign of toxicity. At least one of five American children has some degree of mottling of their teeth…Prevention of chemical brain drain should be considered at least as important as protection against caries.” (my emphasis, PC).

For more information, please also see FAN’s webpage on Fluoride & IQ.

4. HHS Admits Overexposing Americans to Fluoride

In May, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) admitted that the fluoride levels, which they promoted and encouraged as safe, has damaged children’s teeth.  Because of the huge increase in dental fluorosis (white spotted, yellow, brown and/or pitted teeth) on the teeth of at least 41% of young teenagers, HHS says that water fluoride levels should be lowered to 0.7 mg/L (formerly most communities used 1 mg/L while the guideline was 0.7 – 1.2 mg/L) and in ten years they’ll check children’s teeth to see if they were right about this new level.

HSS did not address the fact that infants who receive formula made with fluoridated water at the new guideline level will receive 175 times more fluoride than the breast-fed infant.  David Kennedy DDS, a member of FAN’s Board of Directors, noted: “The HHS continues its long term support for a policy that grossly overdoses bottle-fed infants and others in our communities with fluoride.”

According to the HSS, the good news is that “the new recommendation will lead to a reduction of approximately 25% (range: 12%–42%) in fluoride intake from drinking water alone and a reduction of approximately 14% (range: 5%–29%) in total fluoride intake.”

HSS said that at least 96% of the 19,300 comments submitted during their review of fluoridation were opposed to adding fluoride to drinking water. They mentioned Fluoride Action Network indirectly when they said that 18,500 comments came from “an organization opposing community water fluoridation.”

5. The Evidence Keeps Piling Up

As if the government admitting to overexposing 41+% of our children to fluoride, increasing rates of ADHD, increasing rates of hypothyroidism, and lowering IQ wasn’t damning enough, 2015 also brought us:
  • UK Cochrane Group could find no quality research proving fluoridation reduces tooth decay, but did find that 40% of children in fluoridated areas have dental fluorosis. (FAN’s Media Director, Carol Kopf, will provide more information about the Cochrane review in an upcoming bulletin)
  • An American Journal of Public Health article (Carstairs, 2015) reports fluoridation was adopted prematurely without harms and risks fully explored.
  • In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, FAN uncovered documents showing that since 1962 officials at the U.S. Public Health Service knew that black Americans were disproportionately harmed by fluoride with significantly higher rates of dental fluorosis (permanent damage to the enamel) rates compared to white Americans. But for over 40 years they hid this information from communities of color.
What will 2016 bring? A lot more if we can continue to get the generous support from our supporters.
 
Sincerely,
 
Stuart Cooper

Protecting Your Family from Fluoride

Of course, the best way to avoid fluoride is to work with your friends and neighbors to get it out of your water – or keep it out of the water.  That requires organizing and education.  We need education not fluoridation!
When fluoride was first added to water in the 1940s, in an experiment to prevent tooth decay, not a single dental product contained fluoride: no fluoride toothpastes, no fluoride mouth rinses, no fluoride varnishes, and no fluoride gels. In the past 60 years, as more communities began fluoridation and one fluoride product after another entered the market, exposure to fluoride increased considerably, particularly among children.
Exposure from other sources has increased as well, such as: infant formula, processed foods, soups, soda and beer made with fluoridated water, food grown with fluoride-containing pesticides and fumigated in warehouses with sulfuryl fluoride (buy organic!), iced tea, raisins, fruit juices, wine, mechanically deboned chicken, and A few pharmaceuticals and fluorinated anaesthetics that metabolize to yield a free fluoride ion.  Taken together, the glut of fluoride sources in the modern diet and at the tap has created a toxic cocktail, one that has caused a dramatic increase in dental fluorosis (a tooth defect caused by excess fluoride intake) over the past 60 years. The problem with fluoride, therefore, is not that we are receiving too little (we don’t need any!), but that we are receiving too much.
FAN guides to help you reduce your exposure to fluoride.

Don't Let Monsanto Kill GMO Labeling!




You can also find your Senators' contact information by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. A phone call has greater impact than an email, but a face-to-face meeting is usually the most impactful of all. In addition to contacting the two Senators representing your state, you can also sign the Food Democracy Now!'s petition, addressed to members of Congress, the FDA, and the President Obama.
