Wake up America

Dear Editor:

General Douglas McArthur wrote: “In the day of gathering storms, as moral deterioration of political power spreads its growing infection, it is essential that every spiritual force be mobilized to defend and preserve the religious base upon which this nation is founded: for it has been that base which has been the motivating impulse to our moral and national growth. History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual re-awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”

These words were written over 50 years ago but they still apply to America today. I fear for our children and grandchildren. We are leaving a mess for them to deal with. Wake up America!

The three M’s of Mammon

Dear Editor:

The three M’s of Mammon

The love of wealth in the USA has our nation beyond fiscal redemption and separated from God.

Muslim is one of the three, as a complete domination of the poor, women, and religion and including God’s people Israel. They feature Mecca as God’s capitol up front.

Mormon is the second and features angel Moroni and golden plates in New York. Joseph Smith claims he gave the gold plates back to the angel Moroni.

Poor Mr. Smith started a denomination and moved many times from citizens in several states who disliked his gospel. Mr. Smith and a brother ended in up in jail. A mob attacked the jail and killed both Smith and his brother.

Smith featured polygamy and the Mormon church had many splits also with federal government.

Mr. Smith was a Mason and his church features many secret things.

Masonry is the third and also features secrecy, religion and also very diversified including much pagan features of ancient Egypt and Arabia. Example: Shriners are called “The Mystic Arabian Knights” (Saudi Arabia is not friends of the USA and finances destruction of the USA).

Egyptian demonic Gods such as Osiris and Isis are adored and featured in a sublime manner in Washington D.C. out front of the House of the Temple. The word “house” is about pagan zodiac sections of heaven.

I feel as a Christian that God will have to deal with Osiris’s phallus feature when we see it above our capitol! He did with an earthquake!

God help the USA!

Fluoridegate Part 2

Dear Editor:

“We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” - Edward Bernays, the ‘father of public relations’ (Propaganda, 1928, ch.1) The accepted level of daily fluoride in drinking water for Americans is approximately one part per million (that’s one milligram in 33 ounces of water). So let me get this straight. The dosage is the same for a 50-pound kid and a 225-pound man? That’s right. And who consumes only one liter of liquid a day?

Fluorine is highly toxic and it’s the most reactive element found in nature. As such it chemically binds with endless other elements to form new compounds that have delighted industry and consumers for decades.

The fluoride added to your water is a drug, according to the federal Food & Drug Administration (http://www.fluoridealert.org/re/ fda.letter.to.calvert.dec.2000.pdf). This drug, which has never been subjected to clinical trials or double-blind experiments, is one for which you cannot give “informed consent” even though you are required to give that consent (your signature) every time you pick up drugs at the pharmacy.

Due to its chemical nature, about 50 percent of the fluoride that enters your body stays there (bioaccumulates) and builds up in bone, bone marrow, the thyroid gland, the pineal gland in your brain and likely in other organs and brain centers (Murphy, 2008).

“Recent information on the role of the pineal gland in humans suggests that any agent that affects pineal function could affect human health in a variety of ways, including effects on sexual maturation, calcium metabolism, parathyroid function, post menopausal osteoporosis, cancer and psychiatric disease (National Research Council, 2006).

There are concerns that fluoride is linked to some cancers, including bone cancer in young males (Bassin, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, 2001).

The Centers for Disease Control in 1999 acknowledged that fluoride’s predominant mechanism of action is “topical,” not “systemic.” This is very important. What that means is that fluoride may work on the surface of teeth but not from inside the body (Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Review 48, no. 41, Oct. 22, 1999). Yet, for some unacknowledged reason CDC and the American Dental Association continue to support fluoridation, even though such a route bypasses our teeth (topically) and goes straight into our bodies

(systemically) where it can be absorbed into our bones, thyroid gland, brain and other areas. But wait, I thought fluoride was supposed to be helping our teeth.

And perhaps as devastating as any of the above are the studies showing a potential link to lowered IQ (brain damage) in children.

One of the most recent “indicated that fluoride in drinking water was highly correlated with serum fluoride, and higher fluoride exposure may affect intelligence among children.” (Environmental Health Perspectives, Dec. 2010) Fluoride has also been implicated in diabetes, kidney disease and Alzheimer’s (because it readily binds with aluminum, making the metal’s absorption into the brain more accessible).

Here are a few heavily documented resources for those who are interested in the fluoride topic: The Case Against Fluoride (2010- comprehensive and easy to read); The Fluoride Deception (2004- documents the industrial interests in fluoridation); and The Devil’s Poison (2006-written by a dentist and, though heavy into biochemistry, it’s the most frightening book I’ve ever read). Other resources include the exhaustive website Fluoride Action Network (www.fluoridealert.org), Daniel Stockin’s website http:// spotsonmyteeth.com/ and the Parents of Fluoride Poisoned Children at http://www.poisonfluoride.com/pfpc/ that includes symptoms of fluoride poisoning and the contents of fluoride in foods and medications.

Three huge questions, for which space does not permit adequate answers, are why was fluoride introduced, who benefitted and why do powerful groups like CDC and ADA continue to support it? The answer to all three is one word: business.

As Murphy said in The Devil’s Poison (p.8): “Up until about 1940, fluorine’s effect on life was always deemed poisonous. It was determined to be altering enzymes used by a living organism to carry out a multitude of tasks. Around World War II, sporadic then increasingly more common articles were appearing that fluorine ‘might’ be good for teeth and even bones. The change in direction is profound and a researcher cannot miss the abrupt about-face.”

Fluoride was a toxic byproduct of the aluminum industry (with lawsuits piling up), then the nuclear industry and now the phosphate fertilizer industry.

Bryson in The Fluoride Deception (p. 148) notes the work of the Paley Commission, set up by President Truman in 1950 (William Paley was head of CBS television.) Fluoride had been declared a strategic and critical material. The commission called fluoride “an essential component of enormously vital industries. Without this little known mineral ... little or no aluminum could be produced; steel production would be reduced substantially; the output and quality of important chemical products such as refrigerants, propellants for insecticides and plastics would be significantly reduced.”

And finally, there was (Forsyth Dental Center-Harvard University) toxicologist Phyllis Mullenix, the developer of the Computer Pattern Recognition System. She was the scientific sweetheart of giants like 3M, Exxon, Colgate-Palmolive, DuPont, NutraSweet and Procter & Gamble until she discovered the truth about fluorine’s effects on the central nervous system, including cognitive problems leading to confusion and (does this ring a bell) indifference.

“I thought how odd,” Mullenix said of her presentation at the National Institutes of Health, one of her last acts before being dropped by academia and industry. “It’s 1990 and they’re talking about the miracle of fluoride, and now I’m going to tell them that their fluoride is causing neurotoxicity that’s worse than that induced by some cases of amphetamines or radiation.”

I don’t expect mainstream, party-line-parroting Republicans or Democrats or industry apologists to buy off what you’ve read here. I do expect that independents, or just maybe Tea Party and 912 affiliates, might be willing to do the research with an open mind.

Bottom line, your federal government has failed you miserably and knowingly for generations on this side of the healthcare issue. I think we’re so dumbed-down that we’re content to keep taking chemo and other meds for our ills without ever asking about the causes of those ills.

That said, the tide has turned and what is soon coming will be the beginning of a series of events that will likely make the deleterious health issues involving tobacco, lead and asbestos combined pale in comparison. What is coming is Fluoridegate. If you’ve done the research, you won’t be surprised. If you haven’t, you may laugh or you may mock, but just make sure you remember where you heard it.
