James Foley – His Secret Life and the CIA

James Foley was a key propagandist in sparking the U.S. air invasion of Libya, in 2011. The proof is here. Believe it or not, it was through his kidnapping then ALSO… part of it spent on a posh resort island! Just about a year after his ‘release’ from that, he’s kidnapped AGAIN! This time, he’s calling us to attack Assad… apparently.

There seems to be plenty of evidence, that we have NOT been told the truth about Foley’s life at all – AND, perhaps not surprisingly, that he works for the CIA… under “press” cover. Does he have a second, secret life that is useful for these warmongering exercises?

Michael Sam down but not Out after St. Louis Rams cut

If Michael Sam is going to be the first openly gay player to make an NFL regular-season roster, it won’t be with the St. Louis Rams.

At least not right away.

Sam was among final four players released by the Rams on Saturday as the team finalized its 53-man roster.

He will now be subject to waivers and could be claimed by another team, meaning he would automatically make that club’s roster and find a new home by the end of the weekend. If he is unclaimed, Sam may still wind up on the Rams’ 10-man practice squad.

“I want to thank the entire Rams organization and the city of St. Louis for giving me this tremendous opportunity and allowing me to show I can play at this level,” Sam said via his Twitter account Saturday afternoon.

“I look forward to continuing to build on the progress I made here toward a long and successful career. The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I’ve always known. The journey continues.”

St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher called Sam to inform him of the team’s decision around 3:30 ET. Sam, who was in Columbia, Mo., on Saturday to watch his former Missouri Tigers teammates open their season, will meet with Fisher in St. Louis on Sunday.

“I was pulling for him, and it just didn’t work out,” Fisher said.

Sam was one of hundreds of players released Saturday. But because of the cultural significance of his status as the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL, his release certainly generated the most intrigue.

But what made his preseason memorable was that for him and his teammates, it was about his status as a football player, not as a trailblazer.

“There was no distraction. If someone perceived or thought there might be a distraction, they weren’t in the building,” Fisher said.

“This was a football decision. Mike fit in very well. Fun to be around, a good teammate. There was no issue there.”

In some ways, St. Louis was the perfect spot for Sam to begin his NFL career. He was drafted by one of the NFL’s most respected head coaches in Jeff Fisher and joined a team with strong veteran leaders like fellow defensive end Chris Long. Sam also initially remained close to Columbia, Mo., where he had been open about his sexuality to his Missouri teammates and on campus for a year without issue.

But though Sam flashed the pass rush ability in the preseason that helped make him the SEC’s co-defensive player of the year in 2013 — he had three sacks in four games — the Rams determined he wasn’t one of the five best players at a position where the team was already loaded with talent.

The top four defensive ends were clear: starters Long and Robert Quinn and top reserves William Hayes and Eugene Sims. The emergence of undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks, who showed the ability to capably play all four defensive line positions, meant there was no room left for Sam.

“Mike played well, and he has the ability to play some place,” Fisher said. “It has to be right place, has to be a fit.”

To Wade Davis, a former NFL player and now the executive director of the You Can Play Project, the best spot for Sam would be back with the Rams as part of their 10-man practice squad.

Davis, who came out as gay after his playing career was over, told USA TODAY Sports that remaining in St. Louis would help Sam’s long-term development because of the coaching he would receive there.

“He’s proven he needs more snaps,” said Davis, who spent time with Fisher and St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead earlier this week.

“By drafting him, they showed a level of investment in him already.”

Americans bamboozled – #ALS Foundation admits 73% of donations pad top execs wallets

By Carla B.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: Do You Know What You Are Supporting?

Many giving Americans have been tricked, bamboozled, hoodwinked, led astray, run a muck and a few other expletives in regards to the celebrity studded, very viral… ice bucket campaign.  Interestingly, the ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) challenge has combined both our sense of responsibility to our fellow earthlings, aimed at changing the lives of those afflicted with the disease, not to mention how giving can in fact be fun and fulfilling.


But wait? Ice Bucket Challenge donations are nearing a staggering $100 million. Where is all that money going, you ask?

Well, according to the ALS Foundation, it’s probably NOT where you think.

Here’s a nugget for y’all:

Over 73% of all donations raised are going to fundraising, overhead, executive salaries, and external donations. Less than 27% is actually used for the purpose we donated for. (see chart below)

RELATED:The ALS Challenge is Admirable but the bottom line is, well Orlando Jones brings it homes for Americans – MUST WATCH

According to the ECFA, a charitable watchdog, 27% of donations actually making it to the cause they are donated to is unacceptable. In fact, the ECFA won’t deem a non-profit as a reliable charity unless at least 80% of donations make it to their intended projects.

Healthimpactnews.com pulled up the top executives 2013 tax returns.

RELATED: Break Down of Man-Made Diseases & The Scientific Cover-Up

  • Jane H. Gilbert – President and CEO –$339,475.00
  • Daniel M. Reznikov – Chief Financial Officer – $201,260.00
  • Steve Gibson – Chief Public Policy Officer – $182,862.00
  • Kimberly Maginnis -Chief of Care Services Officer – $160,646.00
  • Lance Slaughter -Chief Chapter Relations and Development Officer – $152,692.00
  • Michelle Keegan – Chief Development Officer – $178,744.00
  • John Applegate – Association Finance Officer – $118.726.00
  • David Moses – Director of Planned Giving – $112,509.00
  • Carrie Munk – Chief Communications and Marketing Officer – $142,875.00
  • Patrick Wildman – Director of Public Policy – $112,358.00
  • Kathi Kromer – Director of State Advocacy – $110,661.00

Notably, as seen above total administration costs were under just under $2 million and “other salaries and wages” were $3.6 million, with another half million dollars in “pension plans” and “employee benefits.” Expenses for non-employee labor were about $4 million, and “travel expenses” exceeded $1.3 million.

So total costs for labor to run the association was around $12.5 million, from revenues received totaling $24 million. So we can gather that over 50% of what the ALS Association receives appears to support salaries of people working for the Association.

Here is the breakdown for the rest of the revenue:

Almost $1 million was spent on “Lobbying” (Schedule C Part II 2a). Here is what they wrote concerning their Lobbying efforts:

Explanation: The purpose of our advocacy program is to sensitize legislators to, and obtain their sympathy for, the plight of ALS victims, patients and their families, and to influence legislation regarding the appropriation of federal funds for ALS research and the use and cost to patients of “orphan” drugs.

The largest amount of what is remaining is: “Grants and other assistance to governments and organizations in the United States” (Part IX line 1) – $6.2 million. This amount is itemized on Schedule 1. Almost all of these recipients are medical schools, with strong ties to the pharmaceutical industry.

The ALS Association was started in 1985, and they still have not invested in any new cures for ALS. One of the latest failures was Biogen’s drug dexpramipexole, which halted research in early 2013. The drug was in research for more than 10 years at an estimated cost of between $75 million and $100 million, but was abandoned in last stage development due to poor results. (Source.)

If You Are Pro-life, You Are Supporting Research in Stem-Cells from Aborted Fetuses for ALS

The ALS Foundation’s primary work in “research” is in the development of new pharmaceutical drugs, and that includes stem cell research. Here is one study where they have been listed as a sponsor: A Phase I, Open-label, First-in-human Feasibility and Safety Study of Human Spinal Cord derived Neural Stem Cell Transplantation for the Treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Quote:

These stem cells have been engineered from the spinal cord of a single fetus electively aborted after eight weeks of gestation. The tissue was obtained with the mother’s consent.

When we make a contribution to a charity, typically we want to know that the particular charity reflects our own values, so this will be important information for many people.

For a review of over 500 published studies on natural approaches to ALS that you are unlikely to see referenced by the ALS charities supporting the pharmaceutical industry, see GreenMedInfo.com’s research page on ALS here.

Charities and fun activities like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge can often give us a feeling of contributing to something very helpful and worthwhile, but it is always wise to research any charity first. Examining their tax returns is one good way to find out where their money is actually being spent.

200,000 Downwind Deaths From Nevada Atomic Testing

Follow us:@eotmonline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

(Veterans Today) From 1951 to 1970 the United States Government conducted over 1100 Atomic tests in Nevada whose radiation fallout has resulted in over 200,000 deaths throughout the country ~ instant karma for the over 200,000 deaths from the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945 and now Fukushima is slowly radiating the West Coast. In less than 70 years, Karmic law has once again asserted that those who ride the forces of evil will eventually be crushed by the very same forces: Allen L Roland, Ph.D

American military forces participating in Nevada Atomic testing



I was only 11 years old when The United States dropped the first Atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. I remember the moment well for I was sitting across the street at the Thompson Club, Nahant waiting for my twin brother to join me to play baseball. Suddenly I felt an immense sense of collective loss ~ and then a short time later my twin brother came running from across the street telling me that we had dropped an Atomic bomb on Japan. Even at that young age, I somehow sensed we had released an evil powerful genie that could eventually destroy ourselves and the planet.

Power corrupts, absolute atomic power absolutely morally corrupts, particularly when it is in the hands of the Military/Industrial complex with the power to control and destroy the world ~ whereas human life eventually becomes collateral damage as it did with the Atomic testing during the sixties in Nevada.

The extent of the Nevada testing most probably included the development of the Davy Crockett tactical nuclear warheads which have been linked to many false flag events including 9/11. See VT Article http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/08/27/376708/iaea-us-not-iran-the-problem/

US-total-fallout-51-70

Here’s a chart of the radiation fallout pattern from the Nevada testing ~ please note that it extends well across the country while compensation is only being offered to a few states bordering Nevada.

As Wikipedia reports ~ Downwinders refers to individuals and communities who are exposed to radioactive contamination or nuclear fallout from atmospheric or underground nuclear weapons testing, and nuclear accidents. Currently, this article focuses on incidents in the United States, or caused by its weapons testing.

The impact of nuclear contamination on an individual is generally estimated as the result of the dose of radiation received and the duration of exposure, using the Linear No-Threshold Model (LNT). The hypothesis was adopted for regulatory purposes about 65 years ago and has no scientific evidence to support its validity in the years since then. It is vehemently rejected by the health and epidemiological communities in the face of abundant data refuting its validity. Sex, age, race, culture, occupation, class, location, and simultaneous exposure to additional environmental toxins are also significant, but often overlooked, factors that contribute to the health effects on a particular “downwind” community

Here’s some color film footage of atomic bomb tests in Nevada – especially the downwinders as well as hundreds of soldiers being exposed to high levels of radiation. 5 minute video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srbMbqlLsxo

The United States Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) is a federal statute providing for the monetary compensation of people, including atomic veterans, who contracted cancer and a number of other specified diseases as a direct result of their exposure to atmospheric nuclear testing undertaken by the United States during the Cold War, or their exposure to high levels of radon while doing uranium mining. The 1990 act provided the following remunerations:

  • $50,000 to individuals residing or working “downwind” of the Nevada Test Site
  • $75,000 for workers participating in atmospheric nuclear weapons tests
  • $100,000 for uranium miners, millers, and ore transporters

In all cases there are additional requirements which must be satisfied (proof of exposure, establishment of duration of employment, establishment of certain medical conditions, etc.).

In some cases, however, it was extremely difficult for people to receive their compensation, especially in the case of the widows of uranium miners. Because many uranium miners were Native Americans, they did not have standard marriage licenses required to establish a legal connection to the deceased. In 1999, revisions were published in the Federal Register to assist in making award claims. See Downwinders article ~ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downwinders

On April 18, 2013, H.R. 1645: The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act Amendments of 2013 was introduced in Congress and promptly referred to committee with virtually zero chance of being enacted. There have currently been no votes related to this bill ~ https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr1645

The yellow states on this RECA chart are still virtually uncompensated for their exposure to radiation from over 1100 Atomic tests due to Congressional inaction or lack of public outcry. In 1980, People magazine revealed some consequences of continental nuclear testing for American citizens. The magazine disclosed that of some 220 cast and crew who filmed a 1956 film, The Conqueror, on location near St. George, Utah, (over 120 miles from Atomic test sites) ninety-one had come down with cancer, with an unheard of 41 per cent morbidity rate.Of these, forty-six had died of cancer by 1980. Among the victims were John Wayne and Susan Hayward, the stars of the film.

reca

Color film footage of atomic bomb tests with active duty military personnel at Camp Desert Rock, Nevada Test Site, Nevada, shows soldiers in foxholes as nuclear detonation occurs nearby; light and shockwaves; blowing dust; soldiers climbing out of foxholes and running towards mushroom cloud. Some of this footage is familiar by virtue of having been seen in the film Atomic Cafe. Many soldiers who were present were exposed to high levels of radiation ~ and soon to be joined by countless civilians downwind ~ who were also assured by their government that there was nothing to fear.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Officially Married!

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt married Saturday in France

 

NEW YORK — Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married Saturday in the French hamlet of Correns, a spokesman for the couple says.

Jolie and Pitt wed in a small chapel in a private ceremony attended by family and friends at Provence’s Chateau Miraval. In advance of the nondenominational civil ceremony, Pitt and Jolie obtained a marriage license from a local California judge. The judge also conducted the ceremony in France.

The couple’s children took part in the wedding. Jolie walked the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox and Pax. Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals. Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers, the spokesman says.

Jolie and Pitt’s wedding caps years of rampant speculation on when the couple would officially tie the knot. Pitt once said that he didn’t want to marry until gay marriage was legal, but in recent years, both said they intended to. They were engaged in early 2012 after some seven years together.

‘‘It’s an exciting prospect, even though for us, we’ve gone further than that,’’ Pitt told The Associated Press in an interview in November 2012. ‘‘But to concretize it in that way, it actually means more to me than I thought it would. It means a lot to our kids.’’

They have six children together, including three they adopted: 13-year-old Maddox, from Cambodia; 10-year-old Pax, from Vietnam; and 9-year-old Zahara, from Ethiopia. The couple’s three biological children are 8-year-old Shiloh, and Knox and Vivienne, 6-year-old twins.

This is the second marriage for Pitt, who wed Jennifer Aniston in 2000. They divorced in 2005.

Jolie was previously married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller for three years in the late ‘90s and to Billy Bob Thornton for three years before divorcing in 2003.

Both Jolie and Pitt are prepping movies. Jolie’s second directorial effort, the World War II odyssey ‘‘Unbroken,’’ will be released in December. Pitt stars in the upcoming World War II drama ‘‘Fury,’’ due out Oct. 17.

Joan Rivers has been placed in a medically induced coma by doctors as her family anxiously waits by her bedside. According to HollywoodLife.com a source close to the family noted, “It is very very bad and very touch-and-go right now. Life and death decisions will need to be made. ”

(TIME) — Joan Rivers, the 81-year-old comedian and television personality, was rushed from a doctor’s office to a New York City hospital on Thursday morning after she went into cardiac arrest, according to the Associated Press.

 “This morning, Joan Rivers was taken to The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where she is being attended to. Her family wants to thank everybody for their outpouring of love and support,” Sid Dinsay, a spokesman for the hospital, said in a statement. “We will provide an update on her condition as it becomes available.”

Rivers, who rose to national fame with her 1965 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, was scheduled to perform on Friday in Red Bank, New Jersey. Count Basie Theatre said in a statement on its website that Rivers’ show has been postponed and that they “look forward to hosting the iconic comedienne in the near future.”

The entertainer gave a talk on Wednesday at the Time-Life building, where TIME is based, and had told the audience she had no physical ailments — even calling herself “lucky” — according to a reporter who was at the event. Rivers said she does not restrict what she eats and joked that the processed foods and fake sugar may be what preserves the body.

Does Josh Gordon’s punishment fit the crime?

By Cain Cawthon

Follow @EOTMSportsNews on Twitter

NFL Setting the Wrong Precedent By Upholding Josh Gordon Suspension

Today the NFL announced its decision to uphold the season-long suspension of the Cleveland Browns‘ star receiver Josh Gordon, a move that will further tarnish the billion dollar business’ image.

Getty Image


A 1-year suspension?

Seriously? Now I understand that it is outlined in the CBA between the players and teams that after a third failed drug test a player is to be suspended for the entirety of the upcoming season. However, with societal acceptance of marijuana growing everyday, and with the questionable two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for domestic abuse looming over their heads already, this was the NFL’s chance to right some wrongs.

For starters, marijuana is a drug that in some states has been legalized for recreational use already. In a matter of years it will most likely be legal in more than half the states if not the entire country. So while I understand the NFL sticking to their guns and going by what is laid out in the CBA, I also think a year-long suspension is a bit harsh for something that is quickly becoming completely acceptable. I get it if the NFL still wants to keep their players clean of the drug, but it’s not like we’re talking about performance enhancing drugs here. It was weed.

SEE ALSO:Tony Dungy issues statement after saying he wouldn’t draft openly gay player Michael Sam

To make matters worse, you throw in Rice’s two-game suspension after an altercation with his wife, where he knocked her unconscious and dragged her out of an elevator, and all the sudden the NFL looks a little backwards in their thinking. What’s the saying in society, “the punishment should fit the crime?” Have you ever heard of that, Roger Goodell? Let’s keep Rice out for two weeks because oh, he’s a changed man, but Gordon is going to get a year for something I can go buy legally in several states. Give me a break.

I don’t care if Rice helped 100 old ladies cross the street or saved 25 babies from a house fire since then, it doesn’t take away from the fact that he still sucker punched his, at the time, fiancé, knocked her out cold and then continued to drag her around and act like nothing was wrong.

There was obviously an uproar already a few weeks back when the two-game suspension for Rice was announced and they stood by the decision since then. But this was a chance to maybe salvage some respect and realize that while Gordon’s third failed drug test is unacceptable in their eyes, Rice’s domestic abuse incident is unacceptable by the human race.

The NFL blew an opportunity to take a stand on a huge issue that faces not only the United States, but the world, and instead  shrugged it off and pretended it was no big deal, while they collect their billions of dollars. Well, I hope they enjoy collecting their billions of complaint letters over the next year. An organization that recognizable should be setting an example and making a difference.

They will protect players from getting their bell rung during a game, where the purpose is to hit each other as hard as you can, but when it happens in real life it’s not their problem. What a disappointing moment for the NFL.

Is the NFL setting the wrong precedent by upholding Josh Gordon suspension? Sound off below in the comments.
