Dr. Mark Skidmore of Michigan State University joins us to discuss his research with Catherine Austin Fitts into the $21 trillion in unaccounted transactions on the books of the US Department of Defence and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. We discuss what we know and don't know about the subject, the Pentagon's nonsensical and inadequate excuses for the debacle, the new accounting guideline that legally allows every department of the federal government to create fake and altered books for public consumption, the recent failed Pentagon audit, the government's refusal to provide any information about the problem, the failure of congress to pursue the issue, and the failure of the press to report on it.

The Mystery of Consciousness | Interview with Dr. Michael Clarage

Thunderbolts Project | Feb 25, 2015

Perhaps the greatest mystery of human experience is consciousness itself. Today, the fields of neuroscience and neurotechnology provide astounding insights into the electrical and chemical processes of the brain. Consequently, institutional science proposes with confidence that the brain alone creates conscious experience. Yet despite all that science has learned, the very source and essence of consciousness remains a puzzle. Thunderbolts colleague Dr. Michael Clarage shares with us his thoughts on the enduring mysteries of consciousness.

Dr. Clarage received his PhD in physics in 1992 from Brandeis University, studying the biological and statistical behavior of proteins. Prior to that, he spent several years studying binary pulsars at the Arecibo radio telescope. With his brother, he gave traveling lectures about their discoveries in the areas of fractional calculus, fractals, and chaotic systems. Over the past 15 years, he has presented public lectures on such topics as Relativity and Dimensions, Metaphysics in Biology, Transformation in Supernova and Metamorphosis in Biology.

Johnson & Johnson shares plunge after report that says it knew about asbestos in its baby powder

Health Nut News | Dec 14, 2018 | Erin Elizabeth

It was reported today that Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) stock fell today, as much as 11% (on track to be its worst day since 2002) “after a Reuters report said the company knew for decades that asbestos was in its baby powder.” 1(This plunge has caused a ripple all over Wall Street as they are among the most widely held stock and a member of the Dow.)

This is another blow to the company who has been dealing with lawsuits that claim some of its talcum powder products caused cancer.
“…the Reuters report cites documents and other evidence that indicate company executives, mine managers, scientists, doctors and lawyers knew about the problem and failed to disclose it to regulators or the public.

Reuters said it examined documents, including depositions and trial testimony, that show that from at least 1971 to the early 2000s, J&J’s raw talc and finished baby powders sometimes tested positive for small amounts of asbestos, a human carcinogen that can cause cancer.

According to Reuters, the documents also depict successful efforts to influence US regulators’ plans to limit asbestos in cosmetic talc products and scientific research on the health effects of talc.”2
However, I’m sure it will not surprise any of you that Johnson and Johnson called the article “one-sided, false and inflammatory,” and their baby powder, “safe and asbestos-free.”

The company insists that they have always cooperated with the FDA and that over a number of decades, using the “most advanced testing methods available”3 they have done thousands of tests showing their talc does not contain asbestos. (They said that regulators, independent labs, and academic institutions have also found the same thing- their cosmetic talc is asbestos-free.)

French TV Channel Under Fire for Photoshopped Anti-Macron Placard

The anti-government Yellow Vests protests have been dominating national headlines in France since mid-November. A major French TV network gave a gentle, yet controversial, touch to the protesters' narrative, which was exposed by the eagle-eyed audience.

France 3, the nation's second-largest public TV channel, was accused of violating freedom of speech after it emerged that a recent news broadcast featured a doctored photo of a Yellow Vests' protest.

The image in question, supplied by French news agency AFP, shows a protester with a placard reading, "Macron" with a blank space under the president's name. However, it appeared that the banner on the original AFP photo was saying "Macron Out" — something that gives it a whole new meaning.

The France 3 news anchor that cited the retouched photograph brought her apologies to the viewers for what she called "a human error". "We have identified its origin. It will not happen again", she pledged.

It seems, however, that some were not satisfied with the channel's apology.

"Open the photo on Photoshop by mistake, take the eraser tool by mistake, delete 'out' by mistake, save the modified photo by mistake, project it on the screen by mistake, watch France 3 by mistake… It won't happen again", a user tweeted.

Several angry French viewers said that they had filed a complaint with France's broadcasting authority, the Superior Council of the Audiovisual (CSA).

Thierry Mariani, a French MP and former minister, likened France 3's faux pas to "North Korea's propaganda" and asked who was responsible for the move.
