HEALTH
HEALTH CARE VS DISEASE MANAGEMENT For 30 years, Robert Barnes, D.O., practiced general surgery and general medicine in Western New York when he began to realize that the medical industry was geared toward treating symptoms, rather than helping the body heal itself through alternative treatments such as chelation, ozone therapy and other nutritional therapies. Commenting on the U.S. "health care" system, Barnes says, "It's not really health care, it's disease management. Health insurance is not health insurance, it's disease insurance. It seems to pay for anything that gets rid of the symptoms of the problem, whether it be a tumor mass or aching feet, headache or heart disease - rather than helping the body reverse that."

CHAUTAUQUA FIRE DEPT: DON'T CLOSE WESTFIELD EMERGENCY ROOM 
Chautauqua Fire Department firefighters and emergency medical technicians explain why it would be a tragedy if Westfield Memorial Hospital Emergency Room were shut down (as has been proposed by Albany for 2010). We hear from Ken Aldrich, Doug Ireland, Joyce Brasted, Alisha Briggs, Royal Briggs Jr., Charlie Heinz, Charlie Schiller and L.G.Wayne Furman. Scenes from Chautauqua 2002-2009

WESTFIELD PUBLIC LIBRARY SAYS: "DON'T CLOSE OUR EMERGENCY ROOM"
Patterson Library (Westfield, N.Y.) director Eli Guinnee and library archivist Nancy Nixon recall that in 2002, Welch's Grape Juice closed its corporate headquarters and left town. Then five years later, in 2007, the State of New York closed down the town's hospital, leaving the ER open. And now, in 2009, Albany threatens to close the Westfield Memorial Hospital's Emergency Room that provides emergency care for 13 rural communities. Patterson archivist Nancy Nixon asks why the State can so arbitrarily close down a private hospital that doesn't rely on State funds. Library Director Eli Guinnee adds that the 
ER is absolutely crucial for the viability of Westfield and surrounding communities. "Closing the ER would be devastating to this town," observes archivist Nixon. youtube link 8min

GLOBAL WARMING, GLOBAL SCAM?
David Legates, PhD, Delaware state climatologist & assoc. professor of climatology, University of Delaware, asks, "Is our climate changing and if so, are humans responsible?" He answers, yes and no. Climate is always changing; and no, humans are not driving the change. Dr. Legates examines current data and finds warming has leveled off in the past 5 years, and that the earth's poles heat faster than other parts of the planet. The climatologist exposes Al Gore's fraudulent interpretation of data. CO2 does not drive climate change & changes in the sun dictate the earth's climate change. Dr. Legates spoke in Milwaukee on March 30 at an event sponsored by the Heartland Institute. Part 1 of 4).

CHEMTRAILS: Cliff Carnicom 2008
Clifford Carnicom at the California Chemtrail Convergence (May 17, 2008, LA), touched on 3 important aspects of chemtrails : 1) ionized metallic salts; 2) fibrous materials (Morgellans), and 3) desiccated blood cells. Carnicom only hints at the significance of these three deadly aspects of chemtrails (or aerosol spray), in addition to barium, aluminum etc. This video offers a tightly edited version of Carnicom's 75 minute talk.

CHEMTRAILS: Sr. Rosalie Bertell, PhD
In early 2005, snowshoefilms interviewed epidemiologist Rosalie Bertell (Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart) in New York City. Questions covered a wide range of topics, including 'chemtrails.' The interview was posted (7 parts) on Archive, and subsequently posted by others on youtube. Here is a 2009 updated edit of that interview, with chemtrail video from Sister Bertell's Mother House in Yardley, Pennsylvania (2007) and video from Chautauqua, N.Y. Note: Clifford Carnicom (Los Angeles May 17 2008 Chemtrail Convergence) calls attention to 3 aspects of chemtrails: ionized metalic salts, organic fibers, and desiccated red blood cells. It is our view that these desiccated blood cells are used to disseminate mycoplasmas -- in particular, weaponized mycoplasmas such as fermentans incognitus. See snowshoefilms' video of microbiologist Garth Nicolson for an explanation of how mycoplasmas could be disseminated via aerosol spray.

FAMILY FARM DEFENDERS: John Peck
A representative of www.familyfarmdefenders.org, John Peck exposes the hoaxes and dangers inherent in organic food labeling and corporate farming. Peck explains the source food poisoning, Mad Cow, codex alimentarius and other food issues. He notes that without rigorous inspection and rules, food certified as organic can be grown with slave (or prison) labor. When faced with the option of certified organic or local, buy local, Peck says. Peck was interviewed at the Family Farm Defenders booth at the 2008 Midwest Renewable Energy Fair - 20June2008. see also www.familyfarmdefenders.org & www.the-mrea.org  - 17min youtube links part1 - part2

CHEMTRAILS: ON THE TRAIL OF OUR ASSASSINS
Celia and Bill Abram, retired public school teachers, have been watching chemtrails since late 1998. A former meteorological observer with the Canadian Dept. of Transportation, Bill Abram knew early on that the chemtrails did not match his observations of cirrus or alto stratus or 'mare's tails' or anything else. It was chemtrails, not contrails, that was obscuring the sky. As a matter of fact, that's what the US government (and NATO) calls it. Not officially, of course, because it doesn't exist. That's why most of the

public doesn't see them or rationalizes them away. They still trust 'their' government: They are under the sway of the ersatz collective cognitive imperative (to paraphrase Julian Jaynes). Celia and Bill Abram have been watching our double crossed skies for nearly a decade now. Celia identifies the trance state this way, "They never noticed it, haven't a clue what it is, and really aren't that alarmed when we tell them." As Celia points out, our only hope is to induce some cog dis in the trance states of Canada, the U.S., Europe, Australia

CHEMTRAILS Look up at the sky, is it a Chemtrail or a Contrail behind that plane? 
What are Contrails? - The primary factors in contrail formation are air temperature and moisture content. They are usually seen at the higher colder altitudes, but will even occur at ground level in Antartica, sometimes causing a visibility problem for jets that take too long to take-off. Contrails started becoming a common sight during World War II, when bombers started flying at altitudes above 30,000 feet. They can exist in two forms: water and ice. A water droplet contrail occurs when an airplane flies though cold and supersaturated moist air and the warm water vapour produced by the engine condenses into tiny droplets. Under colder temperatures the water will freeze creating suspended ice-crystals.
What are Chemtrails? - Streaks of chemicals created in the air by spray systems on airplanes at any altitude. Chemicals are sprayed via planes for many purposes including crop dusting and mosquito control. Also fuel is sometimes dumped to reduce weight before landing. But within the Chemtrail observer community Chemtrails are the product of an active large scale operation, and Chemtrails are said to vary from contrails in their length of persistence.

U.S. PLANS TO REDUCE MAD COW TESTING(!) AP WASHINGTON  -- Despite the confirmation of a third case of mad cow disease in the U.S., the American government intends to scale back testing for the brain-wasting disorder blamed for the deaths of more than 150 people in Europe.  The U.S. Agriculture Department boosted its surveillance after finding the first case of mad cow disease in the U.S. in 2003.  About 1,000 tests are run daily, up from about 55 daily in 2003.  The testing program detected an infected cow in Alabama last week and further analysis confirmed Monday the animal had mad cow disease.  Still, a reduction in testing has been in the works for months. The department's chief veterinarian, John Clifford, mentioned it when he announced the new case of mad cow disease. read on The Calgary Sun - U.S. plans to reduce mad cow testing

RESPONSE OF REBECCA CARLEY, MD (court qualified expert in vaccine induced diseases)  to CDC's public health protection research guide 2006-2015: The CDC claims that its Research Guide "will provide a comprehensive, long-range vision of national and global public health needs that CDC and its partners can address through research.  The Research Guide will help identify critical knowledge needed to achieve CDC's new health protection goals which are designed to maximize the health impact of programs, services, and emergency responses". In the media advisory asking for public comment it is claimed that "the wide-ranging Research Guide addresses topics of critical interest to the American public including finding new ways to combat infectious diseases such as pandemic influenza, and chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes. It will be self evident from the documentation herein that the CDC and its partners are actually facilitating the creation of diseases and genocide; not the protection of public health, as this guide purports. read on

DEATH BY MEDICINE, Part I By Gary Null PhD, Carolyn Dean MD ND, Martin Feldman MD, Debora Rasio MD, Dorothy Smith PhD  A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million.1 Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics.2, 2a The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million.3 The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million.4 The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. read on

A$ $ICK A$ IT GET$:  The for-profit theft of our health. Dr Rudolph Mueller, Jamestown NY physician and author of As Sick As It Gets, speaks Jan 19, 2005 to a small group of American Association of University Women in Jamestown. He describes case after case of peoples’ tragedies resulting from the lack of health insurance or lack of adequate health insurance. Americans pay twice as much for healthcare than the top nine other industrialized nations and is ranked 39th best healthcare in the world, partly due to uninsured people not getting regular checkups resulting in emergency room care that not only costs more for all of us but often fails to save patients’ lives because it is so late in their ailments’ progression. Universal Healthcare would not only be a wiser use of our money, it would reduce crime and suffering nationwide, overnight. 58 min. 26meg quicktime thanks to archive.org

BIG PHARMA’S WAR ON HEALTH: Richard Schwartz, a Christian conservative Western New York pharmacist for 47 years, explains the high price of medicine: kickbacks, greed, sleaze and deregulation. Schwartz, who’s now in his fourth career in pharmacy, reveals why medical insurance companies don’t hold down (but rather increase) the price of drugs, how the drug industry can prey on an uninformed people (the media – magazines, newspapers, radio and television -- is paid off via big pharma’s advertising dollars). Dr. Schwartz, Frewsburg, NY, spoke Jan.13, 2005 at Jamestown’s Prendergast Library. The event was sponsored by Citizens for Ethical Choices. (59 min.)link

AS SICK AS IT GETS: THE SHOCKING REALITY OF AMERICA’S HEALTHCARE 
UPDATED version:
7.1megs thanks to PGHIMC
Play winmedia file
Rudolph Mueller, MD, a Jamestown New York family doctor, often cites Rev. Martin Luther King, ‘Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane.’ Mueller adds, “Universal healthcare is the human rights issue of the 21st century.” In his book (As Sick As It Gets: Healthcare in America), Dr. Mueller exposes the often heinous consequences of an uncontrolled pharmaceutical industry: buying politicians and high-powered ad agencies to push overpriced, sometimes unnecessary, and often under-tested drugs. Mueller challenges the blame-the-victim mentality adopted by much of the medical profession, and calls for a universal health care system. (Hospital photos by snowshoefilms). www.assickasitgets.com
