Exclusive: Dr. Paul Connett interview on shocking new fluoride study

Explosive: new mainstream study concludes fluorides are lowering children’s IQ.
The study referred to in this interview was published in Environmental Health Perspectives, in September 2017. It is titled: ‘Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6-12 Years of Age.’ It is often referred to as the Bashash study, after its first listed author.
The study concluded: ‘…higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at age 4 and 6 – 12 y.’
In short, pregnant women exposed to fluorides give birth to children who later show up with lower IQ.
I interviewed Paul Connett, PhD.
From his CV: ‘Paul Connett is Professor Emeritus in Environmental Chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY. For the past 30 years, Paul has put his scientific knowledge to work by helping (without fee) communities around the world understand the science of controversial issues like…fluoridation. In addition to explaining the dangers of these practices he offers details of the alternatives…[Dr. Connett is the author of] The Case Against Fluoride (Chelsea Green, 2011, co-authored with James Beck & H. Spedding Micklem).’
‘Paul has researched the literature on fluoride’s toxicity and the fluoridation debate for 17 years. He helped to found the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).’
I found the following items from Dr. Connett’s bio fascinating:

“Extraordinary & Worrisome” – WSJ Demands To Know How FBI ‘Meddled’ In 2016 Elections

Via The Wall Street Journal’s Editorial Board,
Congress needs to learn how the FBI meddled in the 2016 campaign.
When Donald Trump claimed in March that he’d had his ‘wires tapped’ prior to the election, the press and Obama officials dismissed the accusation as a fantasy. We were among the skeptics, but with former director James Comey’s politicized FBIthe story is getting more complicated.
CNN reported Monday that the FBI obtained a warrant last year to eavesdrop on Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign manager from May to August in 2016. The story claims the FBI first wiretapped Mr. Manafort in 2014 while investigating his work as a lobbyist for Ukraine’s ruling party. That warrant lapsed, but the FBI convinced the court that administers the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to issue a second order as part of its probe into Russian meddling in the election.

What Do ‘Think Tanks’ Think About?

‘Russiagate’ WEST RIVER, MARYLAND – We’re back at our post – watching… reading… trying to connect the dots. And we begin by asking: What do ‘think tanks’ think about? The answer in a minute.
First, there is a dust-up in the Washington, D. C., area. ‘Russiagate,’ it is called. As near as we can make out, some people think the Trump team had or has illegal or inappropriate contacts with the Russian government.
***
It’s all very obvious, if one looks closely… Putin has inundated the brains of US voters with his evil Putin rays from his redoubt in Moscow, causing them to make the wrong choice.
This knowledge, such as it is, has apparently been obtained by illegal or inappropriate leaks of information gotten by illegal or inappropriate eavesdropping by government agencies doing illegal or inappropriate things for illegal or inappropriate reasons.
Does it matter one way or another? Probably not. The insiders are firmly in control no matter which way it turns out. What we have here is a fight among insiders – a scrap over who gets to rip us off and how.
Mr. Trump has proven to be flexible and compliant. He is willing to go along with practically every scam and bamboozle in the Deep State repertoire. But much of the establishment finds him unreliable, embarrassing, and vulnerable.

THE NSA ONCE SPIED ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WITH A BLIMP

Most of us think of blimps as an antiquated technology. On the rare occasion that we see one, we assume that we’re probably going to see an ad on the side. But Americans are largely unaware that the sight of one of these aircraft could also mean that the NSA is spying on them.
That’s because, according to The Intercept, the NSA has several blimps, which can be equipped with devices that are capable of eavesdropping on people below it. One of these blimps has actually become a common sight in Maryland, which is where the NSA headquarters is located.
Ostensibly these airships are to be used in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan, and Maryland is just where they’re being tested. You wouldn’t think that a blimp would be suitable for the battlefield, but apparently some of them have a low infrared signature, and are invisible to radar.

Hacker Group Releases Password To NSA’s “Top Secret Arsenal” In Protest Of Trump Betrayal

Last August, the intel world was abuzz following the news that a previously unknown hacker collective, “The Shadow Brokers” had hacked and released legitimate hacking tools from the NSA’s own special-ops entity, the “Equation Group”, with initial speculation emerging that the Russians may have penetrated the US spy agency as suggested by none other than Edward Snowden. The Shadow Brokers released a bunch of the organization’s hacking tools, and were asking for 1 million bitcoin (around $568 million at the time) to release more files, however failed to find a buyer.
Attention then shifted from Russians after some speculated that the agency itself may be housing another “mole” insider. At the time, a former NSA source told Motherboard, that ‘it’s plausible’ that the leakers are actually a disgruntled insider, claiming that it’s easier to walk out of the NSA with a USB drive or a CD than hack its servers.” As famed NSA whistleblower William Binney – who exposed the NSA’s pervasive surveillance of Americans long before Snowden confirmed it – said, ‘My colleagues and I are fairly certain that this was no hack, or group for that matter, This ‘Shadow Brokers’ character is one guy, an insider employee.”
In a subsequent Reuters op-ed by cybersecurity expert James Bamford, author of The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA From 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America, and columnist for Foreign Policy magazine, he said that seemed as the most probable explanation, and that Russia had nothing to do with this latest – and most provocative yet – hack.
Since then, the Shadow Broker group, whose origin and identity still remains a mystery, disappeared from the radar only to emerge today, when in an article posted on Medium, the group wrote an op-ed, much of it in broken English, in which it slammed Donald Trump’s betrayal of his core “base”, and the recent attack on Syria, urging Trump to revert to his original promises and not be swept away by globalist and MIC interests, but far more imporantly, released the password which grants access to what Edward Snowden moments ago called the NSA’s “Top Secret arsenal of digital weapons.”

Furious British Spy Agency Slams “Utterly Ridiculous” Claim It Wiretapped Trump

After a report by Fox News’ Judge Napolitano that UK spies helped Obama spy on president Trump during the presidential campaign, the British spy agency GCHQ issued a rare and angry denial of the “utterly ridiculous” allegation that it eavesdropped on President Donald Trump during the election campaign.
In a rare public statement, the furious Britain’s eavesdropping agency said the charge, made first on Tuesday by Fox News analyst judge Andrew Napolitano, was “utterly ridiculous”. The signal intelligence agency went public after Spicer quoted judge Napolitano to support Trump’s claim that he was wiretapped by President Barack Obama.
In a testy press briefing Thursday, Spicer cited former New Jersey judge Andrew Napolitano, who alleged on Fox News that Obama “went outside the chain of command” and used the British agency so that there were “no American fingerprints” on surveillance of Trump. Spicer said it was one of many reports that suggest the president’s claims “merit looking into.” It brought a swift, highly unusual and furious public response from GCHQ, which is broadly similar to America’s NSA and monitors global communications.
“Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct ‘wire tapping’ against the then President Elect are nonsense,” a spokesman for GCHQ said, adding that “they are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.”

Welcome to Totalitarian America, President Trump!

Trump vs. the Deep State
If there had been any doubt that the land of the free and home of the brave is now a totalitarian society, the revelations that its Chief Executive Officer has been spied upon while campaigning for that office and during his brief tenure as president should now be allayed.
President Trump joins the very crowded list of opponents of the American State which includes the Tea Party, tax resistors, non-interventionists, immigration opponents, traditional family advocates, and a host of others who have been spied upon, persecuted and badgered by federal ‘intelligence’ authorities.
While Congress conducted some feeble hearings and investigations of the shenanigans of the US spy agencies during the interminable Obummer Administration, no real action or reform was taken to reign in the eavesdropping and spying by the national security state on American citizens.
Hopefully, the surveillance of President Trump will change his outlook on the US ‘intelligence community’ especially in regard to those courageous souls who have spoken out and risked life and limb to alert the public about their rulers’ nefarious activities.
Edward Snowden should be among the first to receive a pardon while the person who provided him sanctuary from his American persecutors, the reviled Vladimir Putin, should be commended for his noble act, a rarity among world leaders in this democratic age.

REP. KUCINICH: ‘WE ARE SLIDING DOWN THE SLIPPERY SLOPE TOWARD TOTALITARIANISM, WHERE PRIVATE LIVES DO NOT EXIST’

The White House has been pretty mum on the Wikileaks’ Vault 7 release and the idea that the CIA can exploit all of our internet-connected devices to turn them into covert surveillance tools inside our own homes. The CIA refuses to comment on the authenticity of the Wikileaks documents either, but they definitely aren’t denying any of it.
In a statement on the new revelations, former rep. Dennis Kucinich declared that we are ‘sliding down the slippery slope toward totalitarianism, where private lives do not exist’.
He wrote in part:
If Tuesday’s WikiLeaks document dump is authentic, as it appears to be, then the agency left open electronic gateways that make all Americans vulnerable to spying, eavesdropping and technological manipulation that could bring genuine harm.
That the CIA has reached into the lives of all Americans through its wholesale gathering of the nation’s ‘haystack’ of information has already been reported.

FBI Director Asked DOJ To Publicly Reject Trump Wiretapping Claims

In the latest dramatic plot twist to emerge from Trump’s accusation that Obama wiretapped the Trump Tower prior to the election, the NYT reports that FBI director James Comey asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s allegation that Obama eavesdropped on the soon-to-be president. According to the NYT, which cites ‘senior American officials’ Comey has argued that the “highly charged claim” is false and must be corrected as there is no evidence to back them up, but the DOJ has not yet released any such statement.
In other words, just a few months after Democrats savaged Comey for supposedly attacking Clinton, and even being responsible for the failure of her presidential campaign according to John Podesta, now it is the Republicans’ turn to accuse him of turning on Trump.
Comey, who made the request on Saturday after Mr. Trump leveled his allegation on Twitter, has been working to get the Justice Department to knock down the claim because it falsely insinuates that the F. B. I. broke the law, the officials said. What is strange is that the FBI is requesting the DOJ to publicly deny Trump’s claim when it is the FBI that has the jurisdiction to request a FISA warrant. It is therefore perplexing why Comey, if he wants to put the matter to rest, does not make the public denial himself instead of asking the DOJ to do it on the FBI’s behalf.
To be sure, as the NYT adds, a statement by the DOJ or by Comey refuting Mr. Trump’s allegations “would be a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement officials in the position of questioning the truthfulness of the government’s top leader” and adds that the situation “underscores the high stakes of what the president and his aides have unleashed by accusing the former president of a conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump’s young administration.”

Free Speech Will Soon No Longer Be Tolerated, At All.

Free speech is continuously under attack.
The federal government has total freedom to eavesdrop on every form of communication you have. The government has that freedom, you do not. The police can confiscate any cash you have when stopped by them. You are presumed guilty. The government is in the process of banning cash so it can monitor every transaction you make. No one is stopping this onslaught of individual freedom.
Now, the process of silencing any dissent deemed unacceptable by those in charge will keep you from expressing your independent point of view. Like the proverbial Boiling Frog, people are increasingly tolerating the intolerable.
Our Forefathers are rolling over in their graves.

Put Up Or Shut Up: Judicial Watch Sues FBI, NSA, CIA For Flynn Records

As we noted previously, given the FBI has already ‘cleared’ Flynn, the only possible path for escalation from here by the deep state, is to leak the actual recorded calls to the press, thus “proving” Flynn lied, assuming of course, he did.
Furthermore, as Mike Krieger recently raged, the public should demand the Flynn transcripts
…How do we know what was really said without the transcript? The New York Times tells us…
“During the Christmas week conversation, he urged Mr. Kislyak to keep the Russian government from retaliating over the coming sanctions – it was an open secret in Washington that they were in the works – by telling him that whatever the Obama administration did could be undone, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing classified material. Federal officials who have read the transcript of the call were surprised by Mr. Flynn’s comments, since he would have known that American eavesdroppers closely monitor such calls. They were even more surprised that Mr. Trump’s team publicly denied that the topics of conversation included sanctions. Prosecutions in these types of cases are rare, and the law is murky, particularly around people involved in presidential transitions. The officials who had read the transcripts acknowledged that while the conversation warranted investigation, it was unlikely, by itself, to lead to charges against a sitting national security adviser.”
I have so many issues with the above reporting it’s hard to know where to start. Everything mentioned above is given to us secondhand via ‘anonymous American officials.’ Nowhere do I see any specific quotes from the transcript, despite the fact that the paper admits it talked with federal officials who read it. Why not? Why must we hear about the content of the transcripts secondhand from anonymous officials? This is the most significant red flag with this whole story. If the leakers were truly interested in transparency, and wanted the public to know the truth, why not leak the transcript to Wikileaks and let the public decide?

Snowden Lashes Out At Congressional Report He Is Colluding With Russia

First, read three-time Pulitzer-winner @BartonGellman's takedown of several documented, provably false claims: — Edward Snowden (@Snowden) December 22, 2016

The anti-Russian propaganda launched into overdrive today with a two-for-one special.
First, the “CrowdStrike” cybersecurity firm run by an anti-Putin Russian Dmitri Alperovitch, alleged that the Russian hacking of the “elections” was similar to Russian hacking of Ukraine artillery units (CrowdStrike was the same company which immediately in the aftermath of the DNC hack also was the “experts” cited by everyone as evidence Putin was responsible for breaching the the Democrats’ server).
Then, according to newly declassified portions of a 37 page report by the House Intelligence Committee released on Thursday, it was none other than Edward Snowden – who lives in Russia under a 2013 asylum deal – that was again attacked by the US with accusations the former NSA contractor “had and continues to have contact” with Russian intelligence services. According to the report, the Pentagon found 13 undisclosed “high risk” security issues caused by Snowden’s disclosure to media outlets of tens of thousands of the U. S. eavesdropping agency’s most sensitive documents.
The report was announced in September, right before the premiere of Oliver Stone’s Snowden movie. Only the highlights were released to the public at the time, and Snowden likewise challenged them. The full report was published on Thursday, after it went through the redaction and declassification process.

Wikileaks Releases Half A Million Diplomatic Cables From “Year Zero” Of The Modern Era

RELEASE: More than half a million US diplomatic cables on the Iranian revolution, the siege of Mecca and morepic.twitter.com/23AP8vmzaO
— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) November 28, 2016

Coming on the sixth year anniversary of the infamous “Cablegate”, when on this day in 2010 Wikileaks made global headlines when it unveiled classified cables sent to the US State Department, revealing assessments of countries and details of eavesdropping, this morning WikiLeaks released more than half a million US diplomatic cables from 1979, covering various diplomatic events and incidents such as the Iranian revolution, Osama bin Ladin’s departure of his native Saudi Arabia for Pakistan to support the Mujahideen, the siege of Mecca, Saddam Hussein becoming president of Iraq and much more.
Consisting of 531,525 cables, the latest batch is also known as “Carter Cables III.”
In a statement on the Wikileaks website, Julian Assange, rumors of whose death or disappearance seems greater exaggerated, writes that “If any year could be said to be the ‘year zero’ of our modern era, 1979 is it. In the Middle East, the Iranian revolution, the Saudi Islamic uprising and the Egypt-Israel Camp David Accords led not only to the present regional power dynamic but decisively changed the relationship between oil, militant Islam and the world.”

John Kerry Blasts Turkey For Accusing US Of Orchestrating Failed Coup, Admits US Had No Idea It Was Coming

In a confirmation that either the NSA remains painfully confused about global geopolitical developments (one can’t help but wonder if instead of surveilling the world for dangerous developments, the US “superspy” agency remains mostly focused on local eavesdropping), or that indeed the Turkish “coup” was staged as there was no actual preparation for it, earlier today John Kerry once again repeated that “US intelligence had no infromation” about the upcoming coup.
***
While this was hardly surprising, a more notable development following Turkey accusing the US of being “behind the Turkish coup”, was the US expressing concern that their longtime NATO ally and critical regional partner believed that Washington would try to overthrow their government calling the claims “harmful to bilateral relations.”
As Reuters reports, John Kerry urged Turkey on Saturday to exercise restraint after a failed military coup sparked a government crackdown, and warned its NATO ally that public suggestions of a U. S. role in the plot were “utterly false” and harmful to relations. Kerry also said that authorities should respect the rule of law during their probe of the coup.
Suggesting that US diplomatic relations with Turkey are deteriorating rapidly, Kerry added that “public insinuations or claims about any role by the United States in the failed coup attempt are utterly false and harmful to our bilateral relations,” the State Department said.

Summer Fun, Hot Dogs, Fireworks, And an Invasion of Syria

I suppose we’re all supposed to be shocked by this terrorist attack by ISIS over in Turkey just a couple weeks after the one in Orlando. I don’t suppose anyone will recall that Turkey is a NATO nation, like the United States who honchos the whole NATO shebang. Gosh, and Turkey is hopping mad and demanding revenge. Imagine that.
I wouldn’t think that the quiet buildup of U. S. military forces in the region might herald an invasion of Syria, would you? Nah, none of this has anything to do with that. I mean, according to the government, ISIS can only really be found in Syria. Well, except when they’re launching attacks in other countries, evidently unimpeded by the vast resources in electronic eavesdropping the government has. No, I don’t think that these attacks might be used to justify an invasion of Syria people would not otherwise support, do you?
If I had to predict when such an invasion would take place, I’d have to say probably August. Obama slipped up and mentioned that if the ‘civil war’ in Syria didn’t end by then, the United States would need to step in. How very interesting that attacks from or inspired by ISIS are ramping up as August approaches. I think the invasion is already in progress. I think the military forces are already being put into place and quite a few are already there. Many placed in nearby regions, too, under the cover of ‘military exercises’ which is, after all, how Germany invaded Poland in 1939.

Democracy Is No Better Than a Monarchy… or a Dictatorship

‘Flaming Lunatic’
MUMBAI, India – The Dow managed a small bounce late last week. The bounce came as crude oil gushed higher, back above $30 a barrel. What next? We wait to find out…
We had dinner in London last night, before boarding a plane for India.
‘A large part of the U. S. population must feel threatened by any kind of intelligence,’ said a voice at a nearby table. A group of Englishmen were discussing U. S. politics. We eavesdropped.
‘Can you imagine? That Trump… he seems like a flaming lunatic. His campaign is nothing but telling voters that he’s a good negotiator. He thinks it’s all just making deals with people. All that matters is getting a good deal.
‘Now he thinks people will vote for him because he got an endorsement from that total idiot Palin. What is the matter with Americans? How did they get to be so stupid?’
We almost got up from our chair. It was time to straighten these Brits out. But what would we say? Besides, it is a fair question: How did Americans come to be so stupid?
Of course, the same question could be asked of almost any nation. And it being Friday as we write this, and we being laid low by an epizootic and airline travel, we dug into our archives for an answer…

NSA Spies on Congress

The NSA has been caught taping conversations between Capitol Hill and Israel. Glenn Greenwald reported that the ‘NSA under President Obama targeted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his top aides for surveillance. In the process, the agency ended up eavesdropping on ‘the contents of some of their private conversations with U. S.’’ He notes that those who supported the NSA suddenly had a different tone when they realized that they had been the targets.

NSA Spied on Israeli Prime Minister During US-Iran Nuclear Negotiations

In an unexpected confirmation of what every thinking person realized upfront, the Guardian reports US ‘spied on Binyamin Netanyahu during Iran nuclear deal talks’
Despite Barack Obama’s promise to curtail eavesdropping on allies in the wake of the Edward Snowden revelations about the scale and scope of US activities, the National Security Agency’s (NSA) surveillance included phone conversations between top Israeli officials, US congressmen and American-Jewish groups, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The White House did not confirm or deny the report. Ned Price, spokesman for the National Security Council, said on Wednesday: ‘We are not going to comment on any specific alleged intelligence activities. As a general matter, and as we have said previously, we do not conduct any foreign intelligence surveillance activities unless there is a specific and validated national security purpose. This applies to ordinary citizens and world leaders alike.’

Scandal: Obama Caught Spying On Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu And Members Of Congress

If you found out that one of your ‘friends’ was secretly peeking in your windows at you and your family throughout the day, would that person continue to be your friend? Of course not. But that is exactly what Barack Obama has been doing to Israel. According to the Wall Street Journal, during Obama’s first term the decision was made to monitor the communications of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders. This represents an astounding betrayal of our closest ally in the Middle East, but the scandal doesn’t end there. In the process of monitoring Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders, the NSA also collected private conversations that they had with members of the U. S. Congress. So that means that Obama and the NSA were spying on Congress, which is a very serious violation of the law.
This wasn’t supposed to happen. Two years ago, Obama promised that he was going to quit spying on the leaders of other nations that we are allied with.
But just like most of Obama’s other promises, this one proved to be hollow as well. The following comes from the Wall Street Journal…
President Barack Obama announced two years ago he would curtail eavesdropping on friendly heads of state after the world learned the reach of long-secret U. S. surveillance programs.
But behind the scenes, the White House decided to keep certain allies under close watch, current and former U. S. officials said. Topping the list was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
So when did all of this spying on Israeli officials originally start happening?
Apparently, the surveillance of Netanyahu began ‘late in Obama’s first term in office’…

In Latest NSA Spying Scandal, World Learns Obama Lied Again; Congress Furious it Was Spied On

In January 2014, during the scandalous aftermath of Edward Snowden’s NSA snooping revelations, one which revealed the US had been spying on its closest allies for years, Obama banned U. S. eavesdropping on leaders of close friends and allies and promised he would begin reining in the vast collection of Americans’ phone data in a series of limited reforms.
Below are the key highlights from his January 17, 2014 speech:
Our capabilities help protect not only our nation, but our friends and our allies, as well. But our efforts will only be effective if ordinary citizens in other countries have confidence that the United States respects their privacy, too. And the leaders of our close friends and allies deserve to know that if I want to know what they think about an issue, I’ll pick up the phone and call them, rather than turning to surveillance. In other words, just as we balance security and privacy at home, our global leadership demands that we balance our security requirements against our need to maintain the trust and cooperation among people and leaders around the world.
The bottom line is that people around the world, regardless of their nationality, should know that the United States is not spying on ordinary people who don’t threaten our national security, and that we take their privacy concerns into account in our policies and procedures. This applies to foreign leaders as well.
