Letter to our NM Governor Susana Martinez regarding climate change (re: effects of toxins found in groundwater and soils)!

Dear Fellow Patriots:

I want to take the liberty of sharing the following letter that I forwarded to our NM Governor Susana Martinez today regarding climate change (re: effects of toxins found in groundwater and soils that are increasingly turning up in both our drinking water and general food supplies):

Letter To Governor Martinez:

"March 7, 2014

Dear Governor Martinez:

I again am taking the liberty of sharing the following letter that I recently sent to our NM U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich regarding climate change (re: effects of toxins found in groundwater and soils that are increasingly turning up in both our drinking water and general food supplies).

My main reason for sharing this letter with you is that the information contained therein reveals that residues of arsenic, lead and other heavy metals have been detected in well water, crop soils and general food supplies all across our country, to include New Mexico, and yet the nation’s regulatory authorities are hardly batting an eye at this travesty:

Letter To Senator Heinrich:

“March 7, 2014

The Honorable Martin Heinrich

United States Senate

110 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, DC 20510-3101

Dear Senator Heinrich:

On or about February 16, 2014, I responded to your letter of February 14, 2014, regarding the issue of “contrails” vs “chemtrails” and to-date I have not received a response from your office, which honestly does not surprise me, but be that as it may, today I wanted to share three recent articles and/or blogs with you, in their entirety, which I believe relate to this extremely disturbing matter:

The first article and/or blog, reveals that something is seriously wrong in the fertile Yakima Valley located in Washington State because of a surging number of babies (8.4 per 10,000 live births) that are born with major birth defects (e.g. anencephaly: a condition in which babies are born without much of their brain and skull, etc.), and the reason(s) for these horrifying conditions are eluding state health officials. 

The author of this article and/or blog stated in closing that: “On the surface, this looks like yet another example of poisoning that Natural News editor and founder Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, wrote about recently when he said humanity doesn’t stand a chance of surviving this onslaught of corporate-sponsored genocide.”:

Surge in babies born without brains in Washington State!-Posted on Natural News-By J. D. Heyes-On March 5, 2014:

(NaturalNews) There is something seriously wrong in the fertile Yakima Valley region of Washington. A surging number of babies are being born with major birth defects, and the reasons why are eluding state health officials.

As reported by CNN, a nurse in the area, Sara Barron, was the first to report on a particularly horrifying condition: anencephaly—a condition in which babies are born without much of their brain and skull.

“I was just stunned,” she told the network in an interview. “Three in a couple-of-month period of time... that’s unheard of, and they have such tragic, terrible outcomes.”

Her shocking finding and report eventually prompted an investigation by the state health department. Investigators found some disturbing results.

Over a three-year period, there were 23 cases concentrated in three southern Washington counties—Yakima, Benton and Franklin. That’s a rate (8.4 per 10,000 live births) that is four times the national average (2.1 per 10,000 live births), CNN reported.

What could be causing such a phenomenon? Is it just one of those weird coincidences, or is something more sinister at play?

Mandy Stahre, with the Washington State Department of Health, conducted the investigation into the high rates of anencephaly. She says she and other investigators are stumped.

“We have not found an answer, and that’s a very frustrating part, because this is such a devastating diagnosis for a woman to have,” she told CNN.

Barron, however, says she wonders if state health authorities did not find anything because they didn’t look hard enough at all possible causes.

‘We have to weigh how invasive we want to be’

For one thing, she said, the health department has not spoken to any of the parents of the babies who had birth defects. So they don’t know what the parents may have eaten, or what environmental conditions they have been exposed to, or what kind of chemicals or substances they all might have come in contact with—like, perhaps, the pesticides that are routinely sprayed in the heavily agricultural region in which they live.

Andrea Jackman, whose daughter Olivia was born with spina bifida, another type of neural tube defect, said she wasn’t asked anything by state investigators.

“Nobody’s asked me anything,” she told the network.

So, exactly how did the state conduct its investigation? Stahre said investigators examined data in each parent’s medical record—what sort of prescription drugs they were taking and preexisting medical conditions.

“The study examined medical records from January 2010 through January 2013 and looked at possible risk factors including family history, pre-pregnancy weight, health risk behaviors such as supplemental folic acid and medication use, and whether the woman’s residence received drinking water from a public or private source. No significant differences were found when comparing cases of anencephaly with healthy births in the three county area,” said a health department press release.

“But medical records don’t have details about diet or pesticide exposure,” CNN’s Elizabeth Cohen reported, “two key considerations for this type of birth defect.”

Indeed, the health department—in its press release—even admitted: “Medical record reviews might not have captured all information, preventing a cause from being identified.”

So why not talk to the mothers?

“Well, we have to weigh that,” said Stahre. “This is a devastating diagnosis, and we know that for a lot of these women, they had to make some hard choices. We do have to weigh about how invasive we want to be with these types of reviews.”

Engineered end of humanity?

At least one mother—Jackman—said she would have “been fine” with being questioned. She wants answers so that other mothers don’t have to go through the same thing.

On the surface, this looks like yet another example of poisoning that Natural News editor and founder Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, wrote about recently when he said humanity doesn’t stand a chance of surviving this onslaught of corporate-sponsored genocide:

After having now analyzed over 1,000 foods, superfoods, vitamins, junk foods and popular beverages for heavy metals and other substances at the Natural News Forensic Food Labs, I have arrived at a conclusion so alarming and urgent that it can only be stated bluntly.

Based on what I am seeing via atomic spectroscopy analysis of all the dietary substances people are consuming on a daily basis, I must now announce that the battle for humanity is nearly lost. The food supply appears to be intentionally designed to end human life rather than nourish it.

The second article and/or blog, reveals that heavy metal poisoning is becoming a very serious issue in America today, due to toxins that are found in groundwater and soils, some of which have persisted there for decades and are increasingly turning up in both our drinking water and general food supplies.

This article and/or blog also reveals that all across our country, to include New Mexico, residues of arsenic, lead and other heavy metals have been detected in well water, crop soils and even foods marketed toward the health-conscious, including some popular rice protein brands, and yet the nation’s regulatory authorities are hardly batting an eye at this travesty:

Which parts of America are the most contaminated with arsenic?-Posted on Natural News-By Ethan A. Huff, staff writer-On March 5, 2014:

(NaturalNews) Heavy metal poisoning is becoming a very serious issue in America today, as toxins in groundwater and soils, some of which have persisted there for decades, are increasingly turning up in both drinking water and the general food supply. All across the country, residues of arsenic, lead and other heavy metals have been detected in well water, crop soils and even foods marketed toward the health-conscious, including some popular rice protein brands, and yet the nation’s regulatory authorities are hardly batting an eye at this travesty.

Arsenic in particular, which the International Agency for Research on Cancer designates as a Class A human carcinogen, has been in the alternative news frequently as of late following the publishing of test results revealing the presence of potentially disturbing levels of arsenic in brown rice, brown rice protein and various other rice-based products. This revelation has already prompted many companies who use such products to begin testing their products for heavy metals, with some even promising to set new safety thresholds.

USGS map reveals arsenic contamination in water supplies nationwide

So where is the bulk of this arsenic, some of which is present in highly toxic inorganic form, hiding? A U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report on groundwater contamination, which includes well water and springs, found that it is essentially all over the place. But particular hotspots of contamination include New Jersey, Maryland and surrounding northeastern states as well as Michigan, Idaho, California, Arizona and Washington. Other studies have also identified large swaths of the central South and Southeast where arsenic is being absorbed by rice crops.

The study, which was published in 2000, shows concerning levels of arsenic greater than 10 micrograms per liter all across central Michigan and Idaho, as well as in California’s Central Valley where the bulk of the nation’s fresh produce is grown. Other highly contaminated areas, according to a USGS map, include Nebraska, South Dakota, central Oklahoma and Illinois, and parts of Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.

Many public water supplies are also contaminated with arsenic, according to the report, and public utility filtration systems typically do not remove this toxin before delivering water to customers. This means that untold millions of people who drink unfiltered tap water are also consuming arsenic, just as they are by consuming most commercial rice.

Long-term exposure to low-level arsenic a major threat to human health

Though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is on record as claiming that the short-term health effects of arsenic exposure at these levels are nonexistent, it is precisely the perpetual, cumulative toxic exposure over the longer term that is of major concern. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) admits that even exposure to low levels of arsenic can cause major health damage over time.

“Because it targets widely dispersed enzyme reactions, arsenic affects nearly all organ systems,” says the CDC, noting that arsenic is also linked to gastrointestinal effects, renal damage, cardiovascular events, neurological damage, skin problems, anemia, leukemia, reproductive problems and cancer, including several types of skin cancer.

“Arsenic can cause serious effects of the neurologic, respiratory, hematologic, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and other systems,” adds the agency.

Countering the effects of arsenic exposure could be as simple as taking in more organic, methylating minerals like selenium and vitamin E, both of which protect the gut lining against arsenic-induced damage. Raising awareness about the presence of arsenic in water and soils is also beneficial, as food companies will be increasingly compelled to conduct heavy metal tests and establish contamination tolerances in the interest of public safety.

The third article and/or blog, reveals that The climate engineering corporate media/military/industrial complex is doing their best to create a very deceptive picture for much of the American population because they want the public to believe that the whole world is as cold as the “engineered cool down” areas of the US and Canada, but this is a lie:

Climate Engineering, Media Deception, And Hard Facts!-Posted on geoengineeringwatch.org-By Dane Wigington
geoengineeringwatch.org-On March 7, 2014:

The climate engineering corporate media/military/industrial complex is doing their best to create a very deceptive picture for much of the American population. They want the public to believe the whole world is as cold as the “engineered cool down” areas of the US and Canada, but this is a lie.

First, how “balanced” is the NOAA map below? Does this map look “unusual”? It should, meteorologically speaking. This map is quite profound, and it gets worse throughout the year as the maps continue through this article. The totally unbalanced temperatures from west to east are the telltale signs of massive climate engineering.

{…}

HOW COLD WAS IT GLOBALLY?

Take note of the only blue areas on the NOAA global temperature “departure from normal” map below. This map shows deviations from the “30 year average” temperatures.  Something that must also be considered when looking at this map, we have just passed the 37th year in a row of above average global temperatures. This fact skews the “average” temperatures to the warm side. Even with this consideration, the ongoing temperatures are still far above the warmer than average last 30 years of temperature readings used as a baseline.

2013 is the 37th consecutive year of above average global temperatures


http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/yep-global-warming-still-t...

November 2013 was the warmest November ever globally.


http://earthsky.org/earth/globally-november-2013-was-warmest-novemb...

AGAIN, TAKE NOTE OF THE ONLY AREAS SHADED IN BLUE ON THE MAP BELOW, THESE ARE AREAS OF ESPECIALLY INTENSE CLIMATE ENGINEERING FOCUS.

{…}

THE MAPS BELOW ARE FOR DECEMBER 2013, ONCE MORE, TAKE NOTE OF THE ONLY REGIONS OF BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES SHADED IN BLUE.

{…}

NOW LET’S MOVE ON TO JANUARY 2014, THE MAP BELOW ALSO SHOWS INCREDIBLY UNBALANCED TEMPERATURE VARIATION FROM WEST TO EAST.

THE NEXT MAP BELOW COVERS A TIME FRAME FURTHER INTO JANUARY. THE RADICAL IMBALANCE CONTINUES. MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NOT COVERING THE TRUE GLOBAL PICTURE AT ALL.

January 2014 was the 4th warmest on record globally.

January 2014 also saw record breaking warmth in Alaska.


http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2014/01/23/alaska-warm-weathe...

{…}

GOING INTO MARCH 2014, THE GLARING UNNATURAL CLIMATE IMBALANCES CONTINUE.

{…}

FURTHER INTO MARCH, THE IMBALANCES INTENSIFY AND ALASKA AGAIN HEADS FOR FAR ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

THE CLIMATE ENGINEERS CONTINUE TO FOCUS THEIR EFFORTS ON COOLING THE EASTER US.

{…}

RADICAL JET STREAM MANIPULATION , AND ARTIFICIAL/CHEMICAL ICE NUCLEATION ARE BOTH MAJOR COMPONENTS OF THE ENGINEERED COOL DOWNS. THE CLIMATE ENGINEERS HAVE CONCENTRATED THEIR EFFORTS ON THE SAME REGIONS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. THIS CREATES THE IMPRESSION OF A COLD WORLD FOR THE MOST DENSLY POPULATED ZONES OF THE US. THE FOCUSED COOLING IN THE SAME SPOTS OVER AND OVER ALSO CREATES SOME “GLOBAL COOLING” HEADLINES AND MEDIA HYPE, ANOTHER GOAL OF THE CLIMATE ENGINEERS AND THEIR MEDIA LAP DOGS.

THE NASA “TEMPERATURE DEPARTURE FROM AVERAGE” TEMPERATURE MAP BELOW SHOULD MAKE CLEAR WHAT IS COLD, AND WHAT IS NOT.

{…}

NINE OUT OF THE TEN WARMEST YEARS ON RECORD OCCURED IN THE LAST DECADE. WHAT ABOUT THE HEADLINES THAT SAID GLOBAL WARMING STOPPED? JUST ANOTHER LIE THAT MANY UNFORTUNATELY BOUGHT INTO.

2012, WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR THE US BY FAR

2012 SAW 362 ALL TIME RECORD HIGHS SET IN THE US, THERE WERE ZERO RECORD LOWS

http://bradleydibble.authorsxpress.com/2013/01/08/2012-us-temperatu...

If we are to successfully convey the truth about climate engineering to others, it is imperative we have an accurate assessment of the facts. There is no natural weather at this point, and this is especially true in the case of the engineered “cool downs”. We must look past our own immediate horizons to understand the true state of the global climate at this point. The ongoing climate engineering has many purposes for the power structure, one is to hide the severity of the planetary meltdown that is already unfolding rapidly. The paradox is that the artificial cool downs are actually adding to the warming of the planet overall, they are making an already dire situation far worse still. In addition, the ongoing geoengineering is literally poisoning all life on Earth, shredding the ozone layer, and completely disrupting the hydrological cycle.

We need everyone to help with the fight to shine the light on the crimes of the climate engineers, we must wake the sleeping public to this dire and immediate threat.

Dear DeniseInAZ:
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog regarding these extremely disturbing issues and for your much appreciated feedback. I have family in Apache Junction, AZ and every time I visit them I see the effects of these "chemtrails", which everyone calls "contrails."
Thanks again.

I enjoyed reading your post.  Finally someone is finding out what our government is doing to all of us.  so many people call it crazy but here in Arizona, I have seen these chemtrails.  I watch the jets flying over and making the X and the grids.  One time at sunset, I saw one of those dirty trails coming down to the earth like rain but not rain. These chemtrails last most of the day and turn a sunny day into a gray murkish day.  You never get rain out of those.  Their thing is after a few minutes they spread out.  Some trails have what I call uptroughs that you can see with the naked eye.  Just glad that someone else is taking it seriously.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
