(NaturalNews) One of New York’s lesser-known institutions of higher learning is making headlines after 13 confirmed cases, and counting, of mumps emerged on two of its campuses, prompting school officials to impetuously ban all unvaccinated students from attending classes. But these same reports clearly indicate that all affected students had already been vaccinated for mumps, proving once again the utter uselessness of vaccines and the imbecilic tendencies of organizations chained to the vaccine status quo.

According to reports, concerns first arose after several Fordham University students suddenly came down with flu-like symptoms in recent weeks, which later turned out to be adult mumps in every case. The infection numbers continued to swell, prompting an inquiry into the vaccination records of the affected students. But this inquiry revealed that not a single unvaccinated student had contracted the mumps — only those who had previously been vaccinated for mumps developed the disease.

Nevertheless, Fordham officials have decided to prohibit all unvaccinated students, none of whom have contracted the disease thus far, from attending classes unless or until they agree to provide proof of vaccination. At the same time, all the vaccinated students who contracted mumps are being allowed to continue attending classes after exceeding the supposed contagious stage, a completely irrational policy move that only unfettered adherence to mainstream vaccine dogma.

“All of the students who were tentatively diagnosed with mumps had been vaccinated,” ABC News reported. “Vaccinations do not offer 100 percent protection.”

Vaccines don’t work, admits Fordham, but you must have them to attend classes

While both school and public health officials admit that the vaccine does not work for everyone, Fordham is still insistent that everyone receive it regardless. In a show of tyrannical ignorance, Fordham officials recently issued a public demand that all students be vaccinated for mumps, and those who have already been vaccinated receive booster shots.

So to recap, a university in New York reports 13 cases of an illness that should not have emerged because every single person who caught it had previously been vaccinated, and the school decides to punish the unvaccinated by denying them an education, all the while welcoming back with open arms those who caught the disease, and who might still spread it to other students.

Nothing about this type of scenario is at all reasonable from a logical perspective, as any rational-thinking person who has not been brainwashed into the vaccine religion will clearly see that vaccines do not work and actually reduce immunity. And yet in our demented society this type of decision-making is considered par for the course and a reasonable response to handling infectious disease outbreaks among the vaccinated.

“[N]atural immunity last[s] a lifetime,” states one ABC News commenter about the benefits of not getting vaccinated. Deconstructing yet another plank in the pro-vaccine house of cards, he added that vaccination lasts “2-10 years initially and then 2-3 years on boosters. This means that the adult population has not been immune to MMR, Whooping Cough, Flu, etc… for the last 50 years, and yet there have been no epidemics.”

“It is a money making, but deadly dangerous, racket bringing billions to Big Pharma and their paid political stooges.”

Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz is still holding out hope that President Barack Obama’s health care law will be repealed.

 

The Republican senator from Texas and potential 2016 presidential candidate made the comment before the Tea Party Patriots-hosted five-year anniversary event held in Washington, D.C.

“I am absolutely convinced we are going to repeal every single word of Obamacare,” Cruz told the Tea Party audience.

impo1Members of Congress and constitutional law experts testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, warning that the legislative branch is in danger of ceding its power in the face of an “imperial presidency.”

The hearing, “Enforcing the President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,” focused on the multiple areas President Barack Obama has bypassed Congress, ranging from healthcare and immigration to marriage and welfare rules.

Jonathan Turley, Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, testified that the expansion of executive power is happening so fast that America is at a “constitutional tipping point.”

“My view [is] that the president, has in fact, exceeded his authority in a way that is creating a destabilizing influence in a three branch system,” he said. “I want to emphasize, of course, this problem didn’t begin with President Obama, I was critical of his predecessor President Bush as well, but the rate at which executive power has been concentrated in our system is accelerating. And frankly, I am very alarmed by the implications of that aggregation of power.”

AURORA, Colo. – A pizza delivery driver says he was robbed at gunpoint Sunday night, had his car stolen and was then fired from his job at Papa John’s Pizza.

Reza Abolhassani said it was one of the scariest nights of his life.

He says he’d pulled into the condo complex parking lot at 14221 East 1st Drive in Aurora and saw a guy in the window of the landing.

“I thought he was the customer waiting for the pizza,” Abolhassani said. “As I walked up the stairs, two men ran at me, said, ‘shhhh, where’s the money.’”

He said the men pointed a gun at his chest and then his head.

“I just told them, ‘please don’t shoot me. I have a three year old kid,’” he said.

Abolhassani said he called his shift manager to report the robbery and she put him on hold, so he hung up and called police.

Aurora police say the alleged robbers got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and with the victim’s car, a grey, 2006 Nissan Sentra with Colorado plates 861-VBX.

The former delivery driver told 7NEWS that the regular manager called him the next day.

“He asked ‘What happened? Why did you not put your money in the red box?’ which he never gave me.”

Abolhassani said company policy limits the amount of cash that drivers can carry with them.  He said the limit is $20.  The rest of their money is supposed to be placed in a red box kept at the store.

“(The manager) gave me a box for about week, then took my name off of it and gave it to someone else,” he said.

When asked why the manager did that, Abolhassani said, “I don’t know.”

He said since he didn’t have a box, he kept the money with him and that’s why he was fired.

Supervisors at the Papa Johns on South Chambers near Alameda said they couldn’t talk about the case and referred 7NEWS to corporate.

Corporate did not return our phone call.

Abolhassani said it’s sad that the company wouldn’t give him a second chance.

“They said, ‘I’m sorry Reza.  We know you’re a good driver, but we can’t keep you because it’s the policy.’”

Abolhassani says what’s ironic is that the employee who took the order Sunday night cancelled it because it didn’t sound like a ‘legitimate’ order.

“She said the customer was rude and while placing the order, handed his phone off to another individual.”

He said that when the customer called back a second time, the shift manager pushed him to make the delivery.

“She said, ‘they’re regular customers. Just make the delivery,’” he told 7NEWS. “I told her before I left the store, ‘if I don’t come back in 20 minutes, please call the cops.”

Abolhassani said he’s looking for a new job.  He said he doesn’t want to deliver pizza late at night anymore.

“I don’t think my wife will let me do that,” he said.

Latest Snowden Leak confirms story Infowars first broke EIGHT YEARS AGO

The latest revelation concerning mass government spying confirms an issue that Infowars has been covering for close to a decade. British and American governments are spying on people in their own homes via web cams, laptop microphones and devices such as the X-box.

The London Guardian has the details in a report based on information leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The British surveillance agency GCHQ, with help from the NSA, actively spied on nearly 2 million Yahoo users via webcams built into their computers. The documents show that the agency intercepted millions of images as part of a secret program codenamed OPTIC NERVE.

The report also states that Americans were almost certainly targeted as part of the bulk collection of data, and that there is no law to prevent such activity in Britain.

NSA ragout 4

The documents show that images were collected from webcams at regular intervals, one image every five minutes, and were used by the spy agency to trial automated facial recognition programs.

The Guardian describes the process as “eerily reminiscent of the telescreens evoked in George Orwell’s 1984.”

NSA ragout 3

The documents dub the practice as “bulk access to Yahoo webcam images/events”, and spies working at GCHQ compared it to a police database of mugshots. “Face detection has the potential to aid selection of useful images for ‘mugshots’ or even for face recognition by assessing the angle of the face,” the papers read. “The best images are ones where the person is facing the camera with their face upright.”

Essentially, the spy agency appear to have been building a huge digital database containing the faces of Yahoo users.

The documents advise employees at GCHQ on how to use the system, noting “[I]f you search for similar IDs to your target, you will be able to request automatic comparison of the face in the similar IDs to those in your target’s ID”.

In one presentation contained within the documents, more technologically advanced systems, such as iris recognition cameras, are discussed as potential surveillance tools. The paper even chillingly states “think Tom Cruise in Minority Report”.

The documents state that Yahoo users were specifically singled out because “Yahoo webcam is known to be used by GCHQ targets”.

The papers also note that a large quantity of the data collected contained nudity or sexually explicit imagery. The spy agency seemingly made no effort to prevent the collection of such images.

Yahoo described the practice as “a whole new level of violation of our users’ privacy,” and strenuously denied having any knowledge of the program.

Infowars first reported in 2006, EIGHT YEARS AGO, that innocent people were being spied on through their computers. We specifically described the practice as Minority Report style technology, as the GCHQ had done.

We have since covered the issue consistently, warning that “Hundreds of millions of Internet-active Americans will all be potential targets for secret surveillance.”

Of course, some quarters dismissed our reports as “conspiracy theories”, while worried internet usersquestioned whether the reports were accurate.

The GCHQ program was seemingly not limited to Yahoo user web cams either. Another presentation within the leaked internal papers discusses the capabilities of the Xbox 360′s Kinect camera, saying it generated “fairly normal webcam traffic” and that it was being evaluated as a potential surveillance tool.

We have also documented the potential use of Xbox for surveillance purposes, noting that Skype calls made on the devices can be intercepted. We have also warned that the ‘always on’ camera of the new Xbox One, which is so powerful it can see through clothing, is wide open to abuse by hackers and government agencies.

According to the leaked documents, the OPTIC NERVE program began as a prototype in 2008 and was still active in 2012. There is no indication that the program has been deactivated.

Security expert Bruce Schneier writes that this latest revelation highlights how there is no distinction between actively spying on a person and what he called “Eavesdropping by algorithm”, in other words, automated computer surveillance. The NSA and the Obama administration have attempted to argue that what they are doing cannot be called “spying” or even “collecting” data, because when the data is gathered, a person is not looking at it. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper still uses this explanation to claim he never lied to Congress when he answered ‘no’ to the question “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”

The fallout from the OPTIC NERVE program, the creation of facial recognition databases, and the fact that spooks provably looked at images of people, even NAKED images of people, highlights the fact, Schneier argues, that the “NSA’s definition of ‘collect’ makes no sense whatsoever”, and that our governments are indeed actively spying on us.

Groups espousing extreme nationalism and xenophobia dominate new regime

On Wednesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe must “decisively condemn” the rise of “nationalist and neo-fascist” sentiment in western Ukraine.

He said the Russian government has video evidence showing how Ukrainian ultra-nationalists initiated violence that directly and indirectly lead to the death of over 100 people during the Euromaidan uprising.

“The Western media prefer not to talk about the riots for what they really were, demonstrations arranged by extremist groups. Perhaps the leaders of the European institutions do not know about the actions of these extremists who were disguised as civilians,” a statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry reads.

“We are most deeply concerned about what is happening in Ukraine. We are startled to hear that some Western countries misinterpret the events, trying to influence the situation.”

“We do not know if the authorities will be able to control the situation,”said Anna Demchenko of the Information-Analytical Center of Moscow-based daily news website Vestnik Kavkaza. “We must not ignore or hush up the involvement of radicals in the events in Ukraine.”

On Tuesday, Marina Petrova, Vice President of the Information and Analytical Center for Post-Soviet Studies at Moscow State University, warned that fascist ultra-nationalists are overtaking the Euromaidan revolution.

“A key role [in the violent protests] is being played by extremists who are not taking orders neither from the government nor the opposition and they are benefiting from the high tension and the absence of peace,” Petrova.

“There are many other groups inside the protest that are anti-Semitic and ultra-nationalist,” she said. “And the directions they are pushing the protest is very dangerous.”

Ultra-nationalist groups involved in violent confrontations against the Yanukovich government include Svoboda (Freedom), Pravi Sector (Right Sector), UNA-UNSO (Ukrainian National Army – Ukrainian National Self Defense) and others.

The racist ideology of Svoboda was underscored in 2012 when Ihor Miroshnychenko, the deputy chief of the party, wrote disparagingly of Ukrainian-born American film actress Mila Kunis on his Facebook account: “[Kunis] is not Ukrainian, she is a Yid. She is proud of it, so [the] Star of David be with her.” He dismissed her as a “dirty Jewess,” a comment resulting outrage in Israel, Western Europe and the United States.

In 2004, the party’s leader, Oleh Tyahnybok, said during a speech in Parliament that a “Muscovite-Jewish mafia” controlled Ukraine and “organized Jewry” dominates the Ukrainian government and media. Tyahnybok also said Jews plan to organize genocide in the country.

Svoboda member Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn, a deputy in parliament, has quoted Joseph Goebbels, Ernst Roehm, Gregor Strasser, and other Nazis.

Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland met with Oleh Tyahnybok earlier this month. During a phone call tapped by the Russians, Nuland said Tyahnybok confederate Arseniy Yatsenyuk should rule Ukraine.

Decriminalizing Nazi Propaganda

Fascist sentiment, however, is not limited to Svoboda, Pravi Sector and the UNA-UNSO.

A bill introduced in the Ukrainian parliament on Tuesday by Vladimir Yavorivsky of the Batkivshchyna party (Yulia Tymoshenko’s All-Ukrainian Union “Fatherland” party) seeks to decriminalize denial or justification of the crimes against humanity perpetuated by the Nazis during the Second World War.

The legislation would also decriminalize actions taken by organizations and individuals who fought against the anti-Hitler coalition and collaborated with Nazi occupiers, as well as those who promote Nazi ideology and disseminate materials justifying the crimes of Nazis and their supporters, according to The Voice of Russia.

Current legislation considers such activity a crime punishable by fines, “restraint of liberty for up to two years,” or a prison term of the same length.
