Here is Volume 30 of “Simon’s Edge,” previously called “Simon Says Weatherwise & Otherwise,” an out-of-box and alternative collection of news link substantiated intelligence on the subjects of climate, weather, technology, financial investments/commodities, socio-economic and health-related risks, issues, ideas, potential “Black Swans” and insights to help gain Bulldog Pundit readers an ‘edge’ in the onslaught of news from around the world.
THIS ONE WILL REALLY YANK YOUR CHAIN
If you have at least one meal containing chicken in the last, oh say 60 years, read this despicable news research. Eat more poison, in other words, but don’t consume any healing foods. That’s the FDA, killing off Americans one meal at a time while protecting the profits of the very companies that are poisoning us with their deadly ingredients. Oh, here’s another sweet little disturbing fact you probably didn’t know about hamburgers and conventional beef: chicken litter containing arsenic is fed to cows in factory beef operations. So the arsenic that’s pooped out by the chickens gets consumed and concentrated in the tissues of cows, which is then ground into hamburger to be consumed by the clueless masses who don’t even know they’re eating second-hand chicken doo-doo. Yep, move on folks, nothing to see here.
DON’T PANIC ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING (BECAUSE THERE ISN’T ANY)
Perhaps the most inconvenient fact for the AGW crowd is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. Mainstream (read: IPCC) computer models have greatly exaggerated how much warming additional CO2 can cause. Faced with this embarrassment, those promoting alarm have shifted their drumbeat from warming to all kinds of weather extremes, to enable anything unusual that happens in our chaotic climate to be ascribed to CO2.
IT’S ABOUT CONTROL
Today, we’ve basically been re-programmed to think that we need permission from the government to exercise our inalienable rights, when in fact the government is supposed to derive its power from us. The American Republic was designed so that government would serve the People to protect and uphold freedom and liberty. But increasingly, our own government is restricting people from their rights to engage in commonsense, fundamental actions such as collecting rainwater. Today, we are living under a government that has slowly siphoned off our freedoms, only to occasionally grant us back a few limited ones under the pretense that they’re doing us a benevolent favor.
A NATION OF SHEEP BREEDS A GOVERNMENT OF WOLVES
First, the Treasury steals from the Social Security Trust Fund and now it is stealing from federal employees’ retirement funds. Nice … what’s next, the 401k, then the IRAs then what?
SOLAR DATA PAGE POTENTIALLY BEING CENSORED
It is quite possible that “they” don’t want you and I knowing truthfully what the heck is going on with the solar output these days. Yes, the solar flares and CME’s are revving-up, and so we have become suspicious in what is being shown recently. The NASA site went down and data before and after was not the same. This wouldn’t be the first time the truth was covered-up so as to stop people panicking. We will continue to monitor this.
TOP FOODS (& DRINKS) TO CONSUME MORE OF IN 2012 AND BEYOND
Here is one of my fav’s – Spice Blends – with home cooks’ growing interest in global cuisine, exotic spice blends are becoming commonplace in the spice aisle of local markets. Look and you may find berbere (an earthy, aromatic Ethiopian blend) next to the bay leaves and ras el hanout (a robust Moroccan spice blend) next to paprika. These spice blends make it easier than ever to create exotic, flavorful meals in your own kitchen – and yes, they are incredibly healthy for limiting disease.
WAIT TILL MORE PEOPLE ACCEPT NATURAL MEDICINE INSTEAD OF DRUGS
Regarding Novartis, “We recognize that the next two years will be challenging in the Pharmaceuticals Division and we are proactively making these changes to further focus our pipeline on the best opportunities,” David Epstein, the group’s pharma chief said. This is just another wake-up call, on a long list, and my message goes out to all taking Big Pharma drugs – there IS a natural way to deal with almost all illness. This sickens me: a clinical study showed late last year high-risk patients with type-2 diabetes and renal impairment had a higher chance of heart or kidney problems when taking Rasilez, known as Tekturna in the United States.
MOBILE PHONE CHARGER THAT RUNS ON WATER, BUT IS IT ECO-FRIENDLY?
This Charger needs just a tablespoon of water (even salt water) to produce around 10 hours of phone battery life. It works via a chemical reaction. The water reacts with PowerTrekk’s special ingredient, sodium silicide, to produce hydrogen gas. But, is the chemistry process safe and eco-friendly (as they say it is with just some water vapor as a by-product?) Seems not: essentially you have dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO), not just a little water vapor leftover. It never ceases to amaze me how we look the other way when so much technology coming out is bad for our health. Although the U.S. Government and the CDC do not classify DHMO as a toxic or carcinogenic substance (as it does with better known chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and benzene), DHMO is a constituent of many known toxic substances, diseases and disease-causing agents, environmental hazards and can even be lethal to humans in quantities as small as a thimbleful.
WHY THE NEXT SOLAR CYCLE IS PROBABLY RELATED TO REALLY COLD WINTERS IN YEARS TO COME
There is a 92 percent chance that both Cycle 25 (peaking in 2022) and those taking place in the following decades will be as weak as, or weaker than, the ‘Dalton minimum’ of 1790 to 1830. Although this may sound rather geeky, I concur with the cooling, so please review.
A FEW FOODS YOU MIGHT WANT TO THINK TWICE CONSUMING
I like to eat raw oysters with squeeze cheese on them, served over frosted flakes, with cold cuts and Chilean sea bass for desert. This article really ruined my day (I’m kidding).
