Man-Made Drought: A Guide To California's Water Wars
by Rep. Devin Nunes
June 12, 2015
For decades, extreme environmentalists have tried to remove 1.3 million acres of California farmland from production by depriving farmers of water.
From Merced all the way down to Bakersfield, and on the entire west side of the Valley as well as part of the east side, productive agriculture would end and the land would return to some ideal state of nature. I was stunned by the vicious audacity of their goal - and I quickly learned how dedicated they were to realizing it. Much of the media and many politicians blame the San Joaquin Valley's water shortage on drought, but that is merely an aggravating factor. From my experience representing California's agricultural heartland, I know that our water crisis is not an unfortunate natural occurrence; it is the intended result of a long-term campaign waged by radical environmentalists who resorted to political pressure as well as profuse lawsuits.
The health benefits of blackstrap molasses
by Michael Ravensthorpe
June 4, 2015
Molasses is a thick syrup produced when the sugar cane plant is processed to make refined sugar for mass consumption.
Whereas the toxic and unhealthy refined sugar is destined for our supermarket shelves, the highly nutritious molasses - which contains all the minerals and nutrients absorbed by the plant - is more likely to be sold as livestock feed instead.
Actor Rob Schneider has obtained copies of CDC cover-up documents, urges California to investigate scientific fraud
by Mike Adams
June 1, 2015
The CDC whistleblower story is exploding, and despite the best efforts of the mainstream media to maintain a total media blackout on the story, the truth is spreading like wildfire across the internet and social media.
The essence of the story is that CDC scientist William Thompson has admitted to committing scientific fraud over the last ten years in conjunction with other CDC scientists. They retroactively altered study data to hide the proven fact that MMR vaccines cause a huge increase in autism risk in African-American children, and the CDC's top criminal, Dr. Julie Gerberding, orchestrated the entire fraud.
An alternative perspective

For many of us, homeopathy is one of those things we've heard of... but we might not be able to describe it, exactly.
Why are we talking about this? Well, the FTC will be hosting a free, public workshop on September 21, 2015, to take a closer look at advertising for over-the-counter homeopathic products. Because there are plenty of products, and plenty of ads for them. You can find the products in stores and pharmacies, on the shelf right next to conventional medicine - and you've probably seen the ads online or on TV.
Water Defense Call For Halt to Irrigating Food Crops with Oil Field Wastewater in Nation's Produce Basket
May 26, 2015
National advocacy organizations Food & Water Watch and Water Defense are calling on California Governor Jerry Brown to protect Americans who consume California produce by ending the practice of using toxic oil field wastewater for irrigation.
Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Times revealed that testing by Water Defense had found toxic industrial chemicals present in the recycled oil field wastewater used to irrigate crops in California’s Central Valley.
Marjoram drug racket in Coles herb aisle
by Monique Bowley
May 21, 2015
Coles' prices may be down down but one man has accused the company of helping consumers get up up on a drug induced high, selling Marjoram willy nilly.
The herb, with sweet pine and citrus flavors, is synonymous with oregano, with varieties including sweet marjoram, knotted marjoram, and even "pot" marjoram. It goes brilliantly with roast chicken, tomato based dishes and quiche. There are no known cases of it causing a disorientation, lack of physical coordination, often followed by hysterical laughing, paranoia or sudden and unexplained craving for snack food.
Consumer Reports reveals the best insect repellents
by A. Pawlowski
May 13, 2015
When it comes to protecting your skin from bug bites, DEET - a popular ingredient that some people eye with suspicion - has some serious competition.
The top scorers included Sawyers Fisherman's Formula, whose active ingredient was 20 percent picaridin; and Repel Lemon Eucalyptus, which contained 30 percent oil of lemon eucalyptus to keep bugs at bay.
Are there studies on how red dyes affect hummingbirds?
by Sheri L. Williamson
May 7, 2015
A recent visitor to the Field Guide to Hummingbirds Facebook page asked a question that comes up frequently in discussions of the use of petroleum-based food dyes in hummingbird feeder solutions:
Have any scientific studies been conducted to determine the effects of these chemicals on hummingbirds? Some people are surprised to learn that the answer is an emphatic "NO." Despite oft-repeated (and oft-debunked) urban legends that the San Diego Zoo, Audubon Society, or some other trustworthy source tested red dye on hummingbirds and found one or more specific effects (liver damage, kidney damage, cancer, tumors, "birth defects," weakened eggshells, or, in some versions of the story, no harm at all), there is no evidence that any such testing has ever been conducted on hummingbirds by anyone anywhere.
Is California's Epidemic of Vaccine Legislation About Merck's Political "Health?"
April 20, 2015
Between December 17-20, 2014, measles arrived at the happiest place on earth and all hell broke loose. Anti-vaxxers were shamed and maligned by everyone from Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel to Dr. Richard Pan.
According to the California Department of Public Health's latest measles surveillance report (3/6/15), since December of 2014, there have been 132 confirmed measles cases reported in California residents out of a population of 38.8 million. 40 cases visited Disneyland during the period in question. 81% were not hospitalized. 56% were over the age of twenty. 18% were between the ages of five to nineteen. 19 cases were between the ages of one through four. 15 cases were under the age of one. This affected exactly 34 kids from birth to age four. Since the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in December of 2012, there have been 109 school shootings and no legislation. There is no measles epidemic. There is, however, an epidemic of vaccine legislation.
There's A Simple Way To Make A Big Dent In California's Drought. Why Aren't Government Officials Promoting It?
by Leighton Woodhouse
April 8, 2015
If just one in ten Southern Californians were to install a greywater system in their home, the state would conserve as much potable water as it expects to generate through the massive $1 billion desalination plant that is about to come online.
So why aren't more state and local government officials encouraging California homeowners to install residential greywater systems as a key part of reducing urban water usage throughout the state?
