On September 23, 2014, an Italian court in Milan award compensation to a boy for vaccine-induced autism.  (See the Italian document here.)  A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boy’s permanent autism and brain damage.  While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the U.S. press has been silent.
Like the U.S., Italy has a national vaccine injury compensation program to give some financial support to those people who are injured by compulsory and recommended vaccinations. The Italian infant plaintiff received three doses of GlaxoSmithKline’s Infanrix Hexa, a hexavalent vaccine administered in the first year of life.  These doses occurred from March to October 2006. The vaccine is to protect children from polio, diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis B, pertussis and Haemophilus influenza type B.  In addition to these antigens, however, the vaccine then contained thimerosal, the mercury-containing preservative, aluminum, an adjuvant, as well as other toxic ingredients.  The child regressed into autism shortly after receiving the three doses.  When the parents presented their claim for compensation first to the Ministry of Health, as they were required to do, the Ministry rejected it.  Therefore, the family sued the Ministry in a court of general jurisdiction, an option which does not exist in the same form in the U.S.
Based on expert medical testimony, the court concluded that the child more likely than not suffered autism and brain damage because of the neurotoxic mercury, aluminum and his particular susceptibility from a genetic mutation.  The Court also noted that Infanrix Hexa contained thimerosal, now banned in Italy because of its neurotoxicity, “in concentrations greatly exceeding the maximum recommended levels for infants weighing only a few kilograms.”
Presiding Judge Nicola Di Leo considered another piece of damning evidence: a 1271-page confidential GlaxoSmithKline report (now available on the Internet).   This industry document provided ample evidence of adverse events from the vaccine, including five known cases of autism resulting from the vaccine’s administration during its clinical trials (see table at page 626, excerpt below).
Description: GSK autism
As in many other developed countries, government, not industry, compensates families in the event of vaccine injury.  Thus GSK’s apparent lack of concern for the vaccine’s adverse effects is notable and perhaps not surprising.  In the final assessment, the report states that “[t]he benefit/risk profile of Infanrix hexa continues to be favourable,” despite GSK’s acknowledgement that the vaccine causes side effects including “anaemia haemolytic autoimmune,thrombocytopenia, thrombocytopenic purpura, autoimmune thrombocytopenia, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, haemolytic anemia, cyanosis, injection site nodule, abcess and injection site abscess, Kawasaki’s disease, important neurological events (including encephalitis and encephalopathy), Henoch-Schonlein purpura, petechiae, purpura, haematochezia, allergic reactions (including anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions),” and death (see page 9).
The Milan decision is sober, informed and well-reasoned. The Ministry of Health has stated that it has appealed the Court’s decision, but that appeal will likely take several years, and its outcome is uncertain.
Rimini: 2012
Two years earlier, on May 23, 2012, Judge Lucio Ardigo of an Italian court in Rimini presided over a similar judgment, finding that a different vaccine, the Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccine  (MMR), had caused a child’s autism.  (See: Italian MMR Remini decision 2012)As in the Milan case, the Ministry of Health’s compensation program had denied compensation to the family, yet after a presentation of medical evidence, a court granted compensation.  There, too, the Italian press covered the story; the U.S. press did not.
In that case, a 15-month old boy received his MMR vaccine on March 26, 2004.  He then immediately developed bowel and eating problems and received an autism diagnosis with cognitive delay within a year.  The court found that the boy had “been damaged by irreversible complications due to vaccination (with trivalent MMR).”  The decision flew in the face of the conventional mainstream medical wisdom that an MMR-autism link has been “debunked.”
Both these Italian court decisions break new ground in the roiling debate over vaccines and autism.  These courts, like all courts, are intended to function as impartial, unbiased decision makers.  The courts’ decisions are striking because they not only find a vaccine-autism causal link, but they also overrule the decisions of Italy’s Ministry of Health.  And taken together, the court decisions found that both the MMR and a hexavalent thimerosal- and aluminum-containing vaccine can trigger autism.
These court decisions flatly contradict the decisions from the so-called U.S. vaccine court, the Court of Federal Claim’s Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.  There, from 2007 to 2010,  in the Omnibus Autism Proceeding, three decision makers, called Special Masters, found that vaccines did not cause autism in any of the six test cases, and one Special Master even went so far as to compare the theory of vaccine-induced autism to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.  The Italian court decisions contrast starkly with these U.S. cases based on similar claims.
How do we reconcile the difference between the U.S. and Italian decisions in similar cases?  What’s different about Italy?  Well, there may be many differences, but a critical one is that in the U.S., if someone loses in the government vaccine injury compensation program, she cannot sue the government in civil court; she can sue only the manufacturer.  In the U.S., her family would have to shoulder legal fees in a David and Goliath mismatch, pitting a global pharmaceutical behemoth against a family likely already suffering financially from serious health costs.
Furthermore, since 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court has foreclosed potential cases and class action lawsuits to contest unreasonably dangerous vaccine designs, such as the use of thimerosal as a preservative or the simultaneous administration of multiple live viruses, such as the MMR.  Since the Supreme Court’s 2011Bruesewitz v. Wyeth decision, no court in the U.S. can entertain vaccine design defect claims, the most likely legal actions to aggregate plaintiffs in similar circumstances against large, pharmaceutical defendants.
Unlike American victims of vaccine injury, the Italian plaintiffs didn’t have to sue GSK; they sued the Ministry of Health.  In both the Milan and Rimini decisions, the plaintiffs won compensation based on findings that vaccines caused autism.  One might say that these cases achieved nothing more than a small payout for injured children.  But arguably the families, lawyers and medical experts behind these cases achieved far more.  They took the issue of vaccine-induced autism to impartial courts, and they got clear a clear judicial answer based on the evidence: vaccines cause autism.
Are court decisions science?  Of course not.  There is a desperate need for more science on autism and the role that vaccines play, flimsy industry, medical and government retorts to the contrary notwithstanding.  But in the current absence of the necessary science on vaccines and autism, decisions of impartial judicial tribunals, based on extensive evidence and testimony, may be some of the best sources of information and insight we have.

Muslims in high places

"There are none so blind as those who will not see."

When you read this you will understand why Obama refuses to say the
words "radical Islam."Did you know that we now have a Muslim

John Brennan, current head of the CIA, converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia.

Obama's top advisor, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.

Hillary Clinton's top advisor, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are involved in the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for  Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim.

Homeland Security Advisor, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.

Obama advisor and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.

Obama's Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim.

Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a

And last but not least, our closet Muslim himself, Barack Hussein Obama.
It's questionable if Obama ever officially took the oath of office when he was sworn in. He didn't repeat the oath properly to defend our nation and our Constitution. Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again in private?

CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a

Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the

Congresswoman Michele Bachman was vilified and almost tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government.

Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East.
The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he's become!
Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to destroy us. It can only get worse.

If you fail to pass this one on, there's something wrong ... somewhere

This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish.  And send it on to everyone.  Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so  quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities.  

Can a good Muslim be a good American?
This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:
Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia. 

Religiously - no. Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam. (Quran,2:256)(Koran) 

scripturally - no. Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
Geographically - no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially - no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically - no. Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.
Domestically - no. Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him. (Quran4:34 )
Intellectually - no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
Philosophically - no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran does not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or   autocratic. 

Spiritually - no. Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' The Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names. 

Therefore, after much study and deliberation... Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL  MUSLIMS in this  country. They obviously cannot be both  'good' Muslims  and 'good' Americans.  Call it what you wish it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who  understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future.
The religious war is bigger than we know or understand!

 Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from within.  SO  FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.  

Please don't delete this until you send it on.

"Well, how old is the Great Pyramid?" asked Rick. "Some say it is 10,000 years old, long before Egypt was founded, while others say it is much younger."
Evidence. that's what Rick wanted. In fact, I do receive quite a few emails asking this same question.
So, if you were wondering, here are some fascinating facts.

Some scientists contend that the Great Pyramid itself tells the date of its construction (foundation).  
In the 19th century, the Astronomer Royal of Scotland, Professor Piazzi Smyth, spent 6 months camped near the Great Pyramid. He went to work with the mind of a Master Astronomer to solve some of the 
pyramid’s mysteries. Smyth explored the Descending Passage which pointed upward to the sky on the pyramid’s northern face. He found that it was set at an angle of 26 deg. 18 min. 10 sec. 
The eminent Sir John Herschel had discovered that this Descending Passage pointed to a Constellation of stars known as Draconis (“The Dragon”).  With careful astronomical calculation, Smyth now confirmed 
While in the Descending Passage, Smyth was excited to find two “Scored Lines”, which pointed upwards at right angles. These indicated to an astronomer to examine their direction in the sky.
These “Scored Lines” were about 4 feet long.  Smyth was amazed at their precision. Having long been an astronomical transit observer, he felt that he was in the familiar surroundings of an observatory! Calculating carefully, he found that these “Scored Lines” pointed upwards, through the Pyramid, to the star Alcyone in the constellation known as “The Pleiades”.
Alcyone was regarded as the PIVOT of the solar system, around which all other “fixed stars” appear to revolve. It was called “The Central One”.
Professor Smyth made an exciting discovery.  At the SAME TIME that the Descending Passage was pointing to the POLE Star (Alpha Draconis), these “Scored Lines” were pointing to Alcyone, the “PIVOT” star.  That conjunction took place on September 22nd, 2144 B.C.
Here, fixed into the pyramid’s construction, was a definite date - 2144 BC.In the absence of evidence to the contrary, we may now ask, could the “scored line” indicate 2144 BC as defining the EPOCH OF THE PYRAMID’S FOUNDATION? 
And now a remarkable fact comes into play. Tradition from the Euphrates region (Mesopotamia) seems to identify Alcyone with the ceremony of FOUNDATION-LAYING. This is significant when you discover that the Pyramid builders have been traced to a Euphratean origin.
Furthermore, a researcher into ancient astronomy informs us that  “Alaparos (the second of the ten antediluvian kings of Euphratean legend) is equated with Alcyone (Tauri).
The Euphratean astronomical abbreviation of the Sign is Te or Te te, the highly abraded form of the Akkadian dimmena (‘foundation stone’) = Assyrian, timmena timmen timme-tim tem te (‘foundation’).

The ‘Foundation’ star (Temennu) is the Pleiad, or particularly Alcyone.” (Brown, Primitive Constellations, vol. 1, p.57) Remember Betty and Barney Hill were abducted by Pleiadian’s and Betty remembered the star map on the wall of their ship. It was later studied by a brilliant woman Marjorie fish who created a 10 point match indicating that the Pleiadian star cluster was their home base. Apparently they have been coming here a very long time.

Was the pointer to Alcyone the “FOUNDATION Star” fixed in stone to record the date of the “FOUNDATION” of the Pyramid?  A strong probability.

The “scored line” defines actual observations at midnight of two successive Autumn Equinoxes, that of 2145 BC. and that of 2144 BC. These observations fix the astronomical zero for reckoning of days, as associated with midnight.  They likewise define the commencement of the Pyramid's solar year at the Autumnal Equinox.

According to researcher Basil Stewart, the Egyptian “Book of the Dead”, suggested that the Ascending Passages would represent “years for inches" in the Pyramid.  (Stewart, The Mystery of the Great Pyramid, pp 17 -19)
From the “Scored Lines” of 2144 BC,  the passage was measured  - until at 200 inches a dark granite plug was reached.  Calculating on the “inch to the year” scale, this brought interesting results.
If these 200 inches truly represented 200 years, then the conclusion was astonishing.  Why? Because going back 200 years before 2144 BC takes us back to the date the Great Flood ended in 2344 BC!
Had this dark plug been set in place to symbolize the darkness which came over the earth at that time?
Then emerged something almost as startling.
The star group Aquarius (“the Waterman”) was also found to be featuring in the astronomy of the Pyramid. Ancient peoples associated AQUARIUS with the waters of the GREAT FLOOD.
The accepted date for the ending of the Great Flood is 2344 BC. And - was it by coincidence or by design -  the SAME “Scored Lines” that pointed to Alcyone the Foundation Star in 2144 BC, also pointed to the precise spot in the sky where AQUARIUS would have been directly overhead in 2344 BC! 
Just think about that.
I am NOT saying that the Great Pyramid was already built before the Flood, with its “scored lines” standing there pointing to Aquarius while the Flood was on. No, the pyramid was built AFTER the Great Flood. (Its measurements incorporate the length of the new, post-Flood 365¼ day year, and NOT the 
pre-Flood 360 day year.) And the “scored lines” were positioned to commemorate an event that had already occurred.
Let it be understood that I am not endorsing such things as predictions of the future in pyramid measurements, as some do. We are simply attesting to some known facts of history.

The ancient races believed that the devil (represented by a serpent, or dragon) had hijacked Planet Earth and entrapped  mankind into rebellion against the Creator. They also recorded this understanding in the pictures of the constellations on their star maps.
In 2144 BC, Thuban Alpha of the DRACONIS Constellation (representing the DRAGON, identified as representing SATAN) shone down the Descending Passage towards the so-called “Bottomless Pit” at the bottom.  In the ancient world, Satan (Lucifer) was understood to have caused man’s descent to darkness, desolation and death.
That star of the Dragon constellation, shining over the Descending Passage, symbolised SATANIC INFLUENCE.
By contrast the “Scored Lines” pointed to the PLEIADES which symbolised a sweetening influence.  Hence in the old book of Job we read: Can you bind the SWEET INFLUENCES of Pleiades? (Job 38:31) 
In ancient traditions, the Pleiades star group was associated with benign influence and blessedness.
So in this sense, the Great Pyramid encapsulates the struggle between Good and Evil. Did they see the uplifting influence of the Pleiades as a symbol of the Creator’s intervention to save man from the results of his own folly?  Was this a message that man need not be always on a slippery downward path but can look upward?
This much is certain. The ancient world was very conscious of the two opposing forces behind world events.
The influence of Evil, well illustrated by the Descending Passage with the Dragon Constellation shining down it, was depicted by writers such as Isaiah: How you  are fallen,.. O Lucifer  [The Dragon].  For you have said in your heart, ‘I will exalt my throne above the stars  of  God:  I  will  sit . . . in the sides of the NORTH.’ (Isaiah 14: 12 15) 
Thuban Alpha, shining over it, is situated on the NORTH face of the Great Pyramid!
Modern Astronomy has confirmed that midnight, September 22nd, 2144 BC, was the date when Alcyone of the “sweet” Pleiades was in position over the “Scored Lines”, just at the same time when Thuban-Alpha of the “evil” Draconis was shining down the Descending Passage to the “Pit”.
Thus Astronomy gives a date which may have great significance for the Great Pyramid.
The ancient calendars had a 360 day year. In harmony with this,  the earth was divided into 360 degrees. The ancient Chinese calendar was 360 days long. So was the Babylonian. And the Roman. And the Mayan. And the Indian. And the Egyptian.
But later, every nation changed its calendar. 
This rearrangement of the calendars in antiquity has long been a puzzle to scholars. Why did ALL those  ancient nations change their calendars from years of 360 days to 365 ¼ days?
My neighbour Rob Payne thought he had come up with the answer. “Oh, I can explain that,” he said. “The ancients first proposed a rough system of yearly count, and later, when their mathematical knowledge increased, they refined it.”
Nice try, Rob. Except we’ve now discovered that those ancient peoples were already excellent astronomers and mathematicians - yes, even when they created the 360 day calendar.
For example, the Maya have left us some of their calculations. They computed the synodal period of the moon as 29.5209 days, as accurately as we can calculate today with our sophisticated equipment. Their degree of accuracy would surely not have been less for the year.
Now let me ask you: Why would so many cultures in such widely scattered regions of the world all have made the very same mistake for the length of the year, and then all rectify it in the same way?
I know some folk like to think the Great Pyramid of Egypt is much older. But realistically, there is good reason to believe  that it was built within a few hundred years after the Flood. The Great Pyramid accurately stands in the center of the land surface of the earth as it NOW exists and must have existed at the time the pyramid was built.
It could be called a huge planet marker, a giant survey post. It marks both the longitude and latitude at which there is more land and less sea than at any other meridian on earth.  Evidently the builders were well acquainted with the exact amount of land on the surface of the earth as it existed AFTER the Flood (not before), as well as its geographical distribution.. This suggests that results of the post-Flood global survey were already in.

It would also explain why the NEW LENGTH OF THE YEAR was also incorporated into the measurements of the Great Pyramid.
The external features, dimensions and units of this pyramid together give precisely and accurately every essential value of the earth’s PRESENT motions and orbit – not the PREVIOUS one that existed before 2345 BC.
This identifies the Great Pyramid as a post-Flood structure. Definitely not pre-Flood.

For example, intentionally or by accident, the circuit distance around its base, measured direct from corner to corner, is 36,524.22 primitive inches. This is exactly 100 times 365.2422 - the value in days of our solar year.
Even though the calendar was still 360 days long. This is so astonishing; we must take off our hats to those early post-Flood scientists. They were ahead of us in many ways. There was no rough count; it 
was precise to the ten thousandth of a decimal point.

A tablet discovered at Tanus in the Nile Delta in 1866 reveals that in the ninth year of Ptolemy Euergetes (c. 237 BC), the priests at Canopus decreed that it was “necessary to harmonize the calendar according to the present arrangement of the world.”
The reason the ancients gave for the re-calculated calendars was not that they were in error, nor that they had improved on more primitive techniques.  It was that there was a “changed order of things.”
And with each passing century, the calendar misalignment had become more pronounced. The nations that sprang up after the Flood with a ready-made culture, inherited their knowledge basically from the world that was wiped out at the Deluge. They continued where Noah left off. They inherited, along with everything else, the antediluvian (pre-Flood) calendar of 360 days.
Was there, at the time of the Deluge, a change not only in the planet’s axis, but a change in its orbit, which in turn caused the lengthened year?
It does bring to mind that curious biblical reference to the Creator, who was believed to “move the earth out of her place.”  (Isaiah 13:13)
The Great Pyramid constructed in 10,500 BC? No, not before 2144 BC. So much for another myth. Would you like to know more ancient secrets?

"Central banks lie. That is what they do. Not too long ago, the Swiss National Bank promised that it would defend the euro/Swiss franc currency peg with the “utmost determination”. But on Thursday, the central bank shocked the financial world by abruptly abandoning it.

More than three years ago, the Swiss National Bank announced that it would not allow the Swiss franc to fall below 1.20 to the euro, and it has spent a mountain of money defending that peg. But now that it looks like the EU is going to launch a very robust quantitative easing program, the Swiss National Bank has thrown in the towel. It was simply going to cost way too much to continue to defend the currency floor.

So now there is panic all over Europe.
On Thursday, the Swiss franc rose a staggering 30 percent against the euro, and the Swiss stock market plunged by 10 percent.  And all over the world, investors, hedge funds and central banks either lost or made gigantic piles of money as currency rates shifted at an unprecedented rate.  It is going to take months to really measure the damage that has been done.

Meanwhile, the euro is in greater danger than ever.  The euro has been declining for months, and now the number one buyer of euros (the Swiss National Bank) has been removed from the equation.  As things in Europe continue to get even worse, expect the euro to go to all-time record lows.  In addition, it is important to remember that the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s began when Thailand abandoned its currency peg.  With this move by Switzerland set off a European financial crisis?
Thomas Jordan, the head of the SNB has repeated said that the Franc peg would last forever, and that he would be willing to intervene in “Unlimited Amounts” in support of the peg. Jordan has folded on his promise like a cheap suit in the rain. When push came to shove, Jordan failed to deliver.
The Swiss economy will rapidly fall into recession as a result of the SNB move. The Swiss stock market has been blasted, the currency is now nearly 20% higher than it was a day before.
The euro is falling apart, and the Swiss did not want to be married to it any longer.  Unfortunately, when any marriage ends the pain can be enormous."
