Bisphenol A: Infertility and Infirmity – Death by Plastic – EU Crisis Deepening – Obama’s CIA: a “Killing Machine” –

September 6, 2011

OK, I’m back from a mini vacation.  I think the BPA issue is one that needs further investigation and action.  Bisphenol A is EVERYWHERE and chances are, this chemical is in your body.  Mounting scientific studies are providing conclusive evidence that BPA is linked to many serious illnesses and infertility.  Sperm counts in some studies are down by 50%.  Do you think this is just by chance?  Eugenicists, like John Holdren, Obama’s Science Czar, have often spoken and written about their goal of reducing world population, and we know the New World Order is obsessed with this topic.  Watch the movie Endgame to get caught up on the ultimate intentions of the global socialists.

Bisphenol-A now linked to male infertility

Bisphenol-A (BPA), known as the “gender bending” chemical because of its connection to male impotence, has now been shown to decrease sperm mobility and quality.

The findings are likely to increase pressure on governments around the world to follow Canada and ban the substance from our shelves.

BPA is used widely to make plastic harder and watertight tin cans.

It is found in most food and drink cans – including tins of infant formula milk – plastic food containers, and the casings of mobile phones, and other electronic goods.

It is also used in baby bottles though this is slowly being phased out.

BPA has been the subject of intense research as it is a known endocrine disrupter which in large quantities interferes with the release of hormones.

Earlier studies have linked it to low sex drive, impotence and DNA damage in sperm.

Now a new five year study claims to have found a link between levels of BPA in the blood and male fertility.

For their study of 514 workers in factories in China, researchers at Kaiser Permanente, a California-based research centre, found that men with higher urine BPA levels were two to four times more at risk of having poor semen quality, including low sperm concentration, low sperm vitality and mobility.

What is more the amount of the BPA in the blood seemed to be inversely proportional to sperm quality.

Even those with less than the national average BPA levels in America were effected, it was claimed.

“Compared with men without detectable urine BPA, those with detectable urine BPA had more than three times the risk of lowered sperm concentration and lower sperm vitality, more than four times the risk of a lower sperm count, and more than twice the risk of lower sperm motility,” said study lead author Dr De-Kun Li.

He claims the research, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, was the first human study to report an adverse association between BPA and semen quality.

Previous studies found a negative link between BPA and male reproduction in mice and rats

It was also the third study in a series by Dr Li and his colleagues examining BPA’s effect on humans.

The first study, published in November 2009, found that exposure to high levels of BPA in the workplace increases men’s risk of reduced sexual function.

Increasing BPA levels urine are also associated with worsening male sexual function, according to the second study, published in May 2010.

The latest study, funded by the US National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, throws further doubt on the safety of BPA.

“The finding of the adverse BPA effect on semen quality illustrates two points: first, exposure to BPA now has been linked to changes in semen quality, an objective physiological measure,” Dr Li said.

“Second, this association shows BPA potential potency: it could lead to pathological changes of the male reproductive system in addition to the changes of sexual function.

“When you see this kind of association with semen you have to wonder what else BPA has an effect on,” said Dr Li.

As a precautionary principle, he said, “Everybody should avoid BPA as much as you can.”

The researchers noted that BPA may also affect female reproductive systems and have adverse effects on ailments such as cancer or metabolic diseases.

BPA has already been banned in Canada and three US states.

Bottles and cans containing the chemical have been linked to breast cancer, heart disease, obesity, hyperactivity and other disorders.

Most manufacturers of baby bottles have stopped putting it in their products but older stock containing the chemical is still on sale.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supports its removal and has stated concerns regarding the impact of the chemical on babies and young children.

It can affect disorders associated with metabolism, fertility and neural development.

Aaron Dykes hosts a segment on Bisphenol A, the dangerous estrogen compound in plastic drinking bottles and food containers. BPA is a known toxic substance outlawed in Canada and Europe, but still used in the United States, even though the FDA raised concerns regarding exposure of fetuses, infants and young children to the substance.

German Constitutional Court soon to make a decision on EU bailouts

Markets here and abroad are in turmoil because of recession fears and deepening instability of the EU.  Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, who was recently calling for a stronger union between the European countries, just lost a state election, possibly due to opposition of unceasing bailouts to keep the EU afloat.  A collapse of the EU would be a welcome victory to those of us who favor national sovereignty and oppose global governance.  We’ll soon see what plays these globalists will use to make an end run around these obstacles.

CIA Has Become “One Hell of a Killing Machine,” Official Says

The Central Intelligence Agency continues to rapidly expand its global extrajudicial assassination program under the Obama administration, secretly murdering people with drones from Pakistan and Afghanistan to Somalia and Yemen. Even American citizens are fair game, according to the President.

The dramatic evolution of the agency’s priorities and operations has become so extreme that a former senior intelligence official told the Washington Post the CIA had been turned into “one hell of a killing machine.” The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the paramilitary transformation was “nothing short of a wonderment.”

But the dramatic metamorphosis, detailed in a recent exposé by the Post, entitled “CIA shifts focus to killing targets,” is hardly without critics. Some experts have even warned Congress that the illegal killings may constitute war crimes.

Thousands of suspected “militants” and civilians have been executed in drone strikes so far. At least 168 children were killed by such attacks just in Pakistan over a seven year period, according to a study released last month by the London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism. The real figure is probably even higher.

But few of the targeted suspects, if any, were formally charged with committing a crime before being blown apart — often with their entire families. Even fewer had been convicted in a court of law.

And though American authorities publicly claim the assassination programs only target high-level terror suspects, the former intelligence official cited by the Post said that is not necessarily the case. “It wasn’t always high-value targets,” he said, speaking about the intended victims of the agency’s teams on the ground. “They were trying to pursue and kill sometimes lower-hanging fruit.”

Along with its death squads, the CIA has also reportedly recruited a vast network of spies in the nations where its Predator drones are dropping bombs. The agency’s “Special Activities Division” even trains and operates own proxy militias in countries such as Afghanistan, which are apparently responsible for much of the dirty work.

According to experts, the ongoing changes in the CIA’s focus and operations have led to boundaries between the agency, the military, and U.S. war contractors becoming increasingly blurred. Even Congress is often kept out of the loop under the guise of “national security.”

But critics charge that the agency’s expanding role as an independent war-making apparatus should be cause for concern. “We’re seeing the CIA turn into more of a paramilitary organization without the oversight and accountability that we traditionally expect of the military,” National Security Project director Hina Shamsi with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) told the Post.

The myriad assassination programs are particularly troubling to critics. In the U.S. Congress, for example, representatives on both sides of the aisle have blasted the “illegal” murders.

“Think of the use of drone air strikes as summary executions, extra-judicial killings justified by faceless bureaucrats using who-knows-what ‘intelligence,’ with no oversight whatsoever and you get the idea that we have slipped into spooky new world where joystick gods manipulating robots deal death from the skies,” noted Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) in an editorial.

And it isn’t just foreigners who can be executed at any time. Last year it was revealed that the CIA — with the support of the Obama administration — maintained an assassination list that included dozens of Americans. The agency has knowingly murdered at least one American citizen in Yemen with a drone strike, and others are still in the cross hairs.

Congressman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul was among the critics who noted that murdering people without trials violates the law. “Now we are told that assassination of foreigners as well as American citizens is legitimate and necessary to provide security for our people. It is my firm opinion that nothing could be further from the truth,” he said during a speech on the House floor. “Secret arrests, secret renditions, torture and assassinations are illegal under both domestic and international law.”

Around the world, the uproar has been even more significant. In Pakistan, where hundreds of drone strikes in recent years have resulted in countless civilians deaths, outrage over the CIA’s aerial killing spree has sparked waves of massive protests.

Human rights organizations have also sounded the alarm. And at the United Nations, senior investigators have repeatedly claimed the U.S. government was openly flaunting the law.

“In a situation in which there is no disclosure of who has been killed, for what reason, and whether innocent civilians have died, the legal principle of international accountability is, by definition, comprehensively violated,” noted then-UN extrajudicial killings investigator Philip Alston, who authored a 2010 report charging that the Obama administration may be committing war crimes.

The CIA said its murder programs are used less frequently than other tactics such as arrests. But under the Obama administration, the use of drones and assassinations has surged to unprecedented heights — far beyond what occurred under Bush. The operations, however, rarely attract media scrutiny.

As The New American reported in June, increasing amounts of American bombs have been raining down on Yemen. And according to the Post’s recent article, the CIA is actually building a runway and expanded facilities for its drones — presumably because the assassination programs in that country are set to balloon.

The U.S. government’s secret war in Yemen, which used blatant lies exposed in diplomatic cables to attack targets and prop up the ruling dictatorship, has also been criticized for widespread civilian casualties. One of the American citizens targeted for assassination by the CIA is believed to be somewhere in Yemen.

And in Libya, recently leaked documents reveal that the CIA was helping Gaddafi fight the same terrorists currently being armed, trained, and financed by the Obama administration and NATO. In a sudden unexplained shift, however, the agency has since then been helping the al-Qaeda-linked rebels overthrow the regime.

Closer to America the CIA’s shadowy operations are under scrutiny, too. As The New American reported last month, the agency was almost certainly involved in the growing scandal surrounding the federal government’s “Operation Fast and Furious” that armed Mexican drug cartels. Reports also suggest that the agency’s decades-old involvement in drug trafficking continues.

Even more recently the CIA was exposed collaborating with the New York Police Department to spy on Americans. The revelations led to particularly fierce criticism because the CIA is not supposed to be engaged in domestic espionage or law enforcement operations.

While the increased scrutiny of the spy agency and its deadly operations has led to more criticism, very few policy makers have proposed solutions. Rep. Ron Paul, like former President John F. Kennedy, suggested abolishing the CIA entirely. But for now that possibility appears remote.
