Tony Newbill is the pseudonym for one of favorite Conspiracy Theory authors. I haven’t gotten an update from him in some time. If I had to guess a reason it would be because I haven’t posted any of his emails for some time. Below is a series of emails that date back to January 7, 2014. Obviously there is a chance some of the information might be outdated but I am betting Conspiracy dudes will still be intrigued. Hopefully Tony Newbill will see the post and begin sending me more Conspiracy Theories to keep up with that world that many scoff at, many believe and many are intrigued by the possibility.
USDA Gives Green Light to 2,4-D Resistant GM Crops
Sent: 1/7/2014 7:02 AM
The USDA has issued a draft statement essentially giving the green light to the marketing, sale and planting of GM corn and soybeans resistant to the hazardous herbicide 2,4-D.
Farm, food safety, health and environmental advocates denounced the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which essentially gives the agency’s green light to the marketing, sale and planting of new varieties of genetically engineered (GE) corn and soybean designed to be resistant to the hazardous herbicide, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D).
Sustainable Pulse would like to remind readers that Australia banned the use of 2,4-D HVE in 2013 over environmental concerns.
USDA’s “preferred” determination that 2,4-D corn and soy need not be regulated under the Plant Pest Act comes despite intense opposition over the past two years from farmers and over 400,000 other individuals and more than 150 farm, fishery, public health, consumer and environmental groups and private businesses. The agency’s release of its draft EIS today opens a 45-day public comment period.
Critics contend that cultivation of the new GE corn, developed under the brand name “Enlist” by Dow AgroSciences, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dow Chemical Company, will lead to dramatically increased use of 2,4-D, damage to non-GE crops—especially fruit and vegetable crops—and adverse effects on farmers’ livelihoods, as well as rural communities’ health and environments.
“American farmers and our families are at risk,” said Iowa corn and soybean farmer, George Naylor. “When Dow and Monsanto first brought out these GE crops, they assured us their new, expensive seeds would clean up our environment and reduce pesticide use. That didn’t happen. Today weeds are resistant to RoundUp, so farmers are using older, more deadly herbicides. 2,4-D corn is a giant step backwards; it’s just a terrible idea.”
“Enlist” corn is one of 8 herbicide-resistant GE crops pending approval by USDA. The others are herbicide-resistant varieties of soybeans (5), cotton (1) and creeping bentgrass (1). Two of these (soy and cotton) have been engineered to be used with dicamba, another notoriously drift-prone herbicide closely related to 2,4-D and known for easily damaging farmers’ non-GE crops. In 2013, USDA rapidly approved 7 other herbicide-resistant GE seeds, as the agency sought to speed up its GE crop approval process.
“GE herbicide-resistant seeds are clearly the growth engine powering the pesticide industry,” noted Pesticide Action Network senior scientist, Marcia Ishii-Eiteman. “These seeds are part of a technology package explicitly designed to drive up herbicide sales. By continuing to rubber-stamp its approval of Dow and Monsanto’s latest products, USDA has abandoned its responsibility to safeguard American farmers’ crops, health and livelihoods.”
Medical studies have linked 2,4-D and related herbicides to increased rates of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, low sperm counts in farmers and birth anomalies in their children. 2,4-D has also been shown to cause … READ ENTIRETY

All Norwegians become crown millionaires, in oil saving landmark

All Norwegians become crown millionaires, in oil saving landmark, so why can’t the US Government JUST Balance the Budget???????
OSLO (Reuters) – Everyone in Norway became a theoretical crown millionaire on Wednesday in a milestone for the world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund that has ballooned thanks to high oil and gas prices.
Set up in 1990, the fund owns around 1 percent of the world’s stocks, as well as bonds and real estate from London to Boston, making the Nordic nation an exception when others are struggling under a mountain of debts.
A preliminary counter on the website of the central bank, which manages the fund, rose to 5.11 trillion crowns ($828.66 billion), fractionally more than a million times Norway’s most recent official population estimate of 5,096,300.
It was the first time it reached the equivalent of a million crowns each, central bank spokesman Thomas Sevang said.
Not that Norwegians will be able to access or spend the money, squirreled away for a rainy day for them and future generations. Norway has resisted the … READ THE REST

How Roberts Was Blackmailed To Support ObamaCare
Many of us have questioned what caused Roberts to switch his vote on ObamaCare at the last minute, as reported by CBS, and doing so, so late that the Conservative Justices were forced to rewrite their majority opinion to be minority dissent.
According to some sources, Roberts wrote both the majority and a large portion of minority dissenting opinions. The liberal news outlet Salon.com has a story on July 3, 2012, “Roberts Wrote Both ObamaCare Opinions”, written by law professor Paul Campos, citing “a source within the court with direct knowledge of the drafting process.”
In 2000 Justice Roberts and his wife Jane adopted two children. Initially it was apparent that the adoptions were “from a Latin American country”, but over time it has become apparent that the adopted children were not Latin American, but were Irish. Why this matters will become evident.
In 2005 the NY Times began investigating Roberts (sic) life as a matter of his nomination to the Supreme Court by George Bush. The Times was shortly accused of trying to unseal the adoption papers and intending to violate the anonymity of the adoption process… however there is more to the story.
How were the Children Adopted?
According to The New York Times, based on information from Mrs. Roberts’s sister, Mary Torre, the children were adopted through a private adoption.
As explained by Families for Private Adoption, “[p]rivate (or independent) adoption is a legal method of building a family through adoption without using an adoption agency for placement. In private adoption, the birth parents relinquish their parental rights directly to the adoptive parents, instead of to an agency.”2
It all now makes sense.
The circumstances of these two adoptions explain not only why this would be overlooked by an overall sympathetic media, but also why a sitting Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court would not want this information to become public fodder well into his tenure. Its release and public discussion would discredit Roberts as an impartial judge of the law, and undoubtedly lead to his impeachment.
This also explains why Roberts would have a means to be blackmailed, and why that leverage would still exist even after the institution of ObamaCare.
… And it has led to flipping the swing-vote on ObamaCare, which fundamentally changed the relationship between citizen and government, making us de facto property of the state, with our relative worth in care and maintenance able to be determined by the government. Essentially it was a coup without firing a shot, much less needing even an Amendment to the Constitution.
Fukushima Debris Peaks On West Coast – Thousands exposed!
According to resistanceunited.com at no time are volunteers offered protective clothing or even a warning that they may be involuntarily exposing themselves and their children to radio-active material. The only warning they get is in the form of waiver. Of course as far as the government is concerned the California volunteers are perfectly safe and use the word “unlikely” even though no real data has been taken that can assist the volunteer in making an informed choice.
There is a fierce debate between citizens and government about whether debris from the Japanese Tsunami is radioactive or not. Private citizens with radiological detecting equipment say beaches and debris are radioactive, while the government sources maintain a veil of secrecy and guarded words about radiation. They hide behind the voice of the Japanese Tsunami Marine Debris Joint Information Center which promises to bring the public the latest information, but was last updated in December 2012! Volunteers are told it is “unlikely” debris washing up in California will be radioactive. They are also told that testing is being done which shows “no elevated levels of radioactivity”. They are reassured that California Emergency Management has “qualified emergency responders ready to help” if volunteers come across anything dangerous. By that time it will be too late to safe-guard their health.
These volunteers have cleaned up millions of pounds of debris from California’s coastline in the last three years since the Japanese Tsunami. This work was accomplished in everyday clothing with bucket in hand. None of the citizens were provided protective gear just in case debris turned out to be radioactive.

McDonald’s poised to embrace new GMO potato farming in 2014 and beyond
(NaturalNews) A new variety of genetically modified potato could show up in Idaho as early as 2015.
Nearly 13 years ago, customers revolted against Monsanto’s transgenic NewLeaf potato, which contained synthetic bacteria to kill insect pests. Now, a new company, J.R. Simplot Co., aims to bring back genetically modified potatoes to the state and elsewhere.
The Idaho Potato Commission, representing Idaho’s $3 billion potato industry, is in support of the new GMO potato variety but is wary of customer opposition. “Unless your customers are prepared to embrace this product, it’s not going to be successful,” said Frank Muir, president of the Commission.
McDonald’s on the other hand has a financial interest in the new GMO potato business.
McDonald’s vast influence could spur widespread new GMO potato farming
With a global daily production of 9 million pounds of fries a day, McDonald’s is looking for better ways to lower the cost of processing potatoes for fry production. This business move may encourage and embrace new GMO potato agriculture, spearheaded by their very own potato distributor, none other than Simplot.
Simplot has come up with a new “Innate” brand of potatoes that don’t use synthetic bacteria. Instead, their variety effectively silences potato DNA to … READ THE REST

End the Federal Reserve and let WE the people make our own Decisions about how to spend our Money Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Back before the Federal Reserve Act, the lack of getting information out to the public so there could be the ability to make decisions in a real time basis and react to Institutional Criminals. This was why fraud and cronyism with the people’s money ran amuck and thus ushered in the Federal Reserve.
It’s not 1913 anymore!!!!! In today’s Information age we can get Information in real time so informing the public on their monetary issues and making decisions on how we the people’s money should be handled can be done by the society through their engagement in real time with their representatives and get rid of this ideology of Monetary policy that’s run aground the Peoples wealth and resource development!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This guy makes the case for a return of financial responsibility over Monetary Policy and that should Be the Responsibility of We the People NOW before it is too late!!!! To Hell with all these PACs, we need REAL People that will LISTEN to We the People and when we say END the Fed – END IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s always about OUR MONEY so LET’S TAKE OUR MONEY BACK AND DO WHAT

Always having to be on the defensive instead of Being a Productive Society producing OUR OWN NEEDS and showing Our families that This is the Only way to Survive and be proud of that fundamental Liberty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hidden Gold Taxes
The Golden Solution For Inflation
Many investors and financial commentators will tell you that there is no need to read a mini-course in order to learn how to turn inflation into wealth. They say the solution can be found in two words: BUY GOLD. (Or as some say: BUY SILVER.)
I like gold and silver. Gold or other precious metals should likely play a role in the portfolio of any investor who’s concerned about high rates of inflation or the possibility of a currency meltdown. Depending on your situation and beliefs, there is a case for precious metals related investments composing at least 5% to 10% of your portfolio on the low-end, up to 60% or 70% of your assets on the high-end. The reason for precious metals is that in a time of crisis there two distinct, essential investment attributes that precious metals can deliver better than just about any other asset in the world.
Through placing her money in what is conventionally considered one of the safest possible investments, during a time of high inflation, Kate has lost 50% of her net worth. This is terrible, of course, but at least she should be able to get a nice tax deduction out of this $50,000 loss. Except that when it comes time to fill in her tax return, she starts with $100,000 in her money market fund, and ends with $100,000 in principal in her money market fund. As far as the government is concerned — there is no loss to be deducted. Kate still has every dollar she started with.
Jack decides to lock in his gains by selling his gold investment, redeploy most of his newfound wealth into some new investments, and maybe take a little out to reward himself for having made such a brilliant investment. When it comes time for Jack to fill in his tax return, it shows that he bought his gold for $100,000 and he sold it for $200,000, thereby generating a $100,000 profit. Effectively, the government looks at Jack’s having dodged the its (sic) destruction of the value of the nation’s money, and says “Great move Jack, you made a lot of money! Now give us our share.”
Even in bullion form, gold is currently taxed as a “collectible” in the US, with a 28% capital gains tax rate, or almost twice the long-term capital gains tax rate on investments that the financial industry and government prefer. We’ll call it 30% to allow for some state capital gains taxes, and to keep the numbers round. However, this rate is not sufficient to cover government spending, as the federal government is currently running enormous deficits, as are the states and municipalities (particularly when we take into account not only declining tax collections but the pension fund crisis). So it is reasonable to expect potentially much higher taxes in the not-too-distant future, both in the US and other nations. …
Turning Gold Into Lead
From a gold investor’s perspective, $2,000 an ounce gold may seem like a dream come true. And when we look at the results, $100,000 turning into $200,000, gold does look like a great investment. Until we remember that the reason gold went to $2,000 an ounce was because of inflation and we adjust our investment results for inflation. We break even. While not a net improvement relative to today, this outcome is highly desirable compared to what happened to Kate. Gold did indeed act as “real money”.
Unfortunately, we then run into one of the most deeply unfair and little understood aspects of inflation and investing in anticipation of inflation. Government fiscal policy destroys the value of our dollars. Government tax policy does not recognize what government fiscal policy does, and is blind to inflation. This blindness means that attempts to keep up with inflation generate very real and whopping tax payments, on what is from an economic perspective, imaginary income.
These taxes turn gold from a shimmering dream to a lead weight around our neck, and mean even a successful inflation hedge can lead to a devastating loss in net worth in after-tax and after-inflation terms.
So how do we deal with this lead weight of inflation taxes around our neck, trying to … READ ENTIRETY
