DIY: Dr. Schulze’s Super Tonic The mothership and I have a fall ritual of making Super Tonic, based on a recipe developed originally by Dr. Richard Schulze. He charges big bucks for it and sells it in a 2-oz. dropper bottle, but we like it so well for so many things that we make it by the gallon and bottle it by the quart.

All should be fresh, and the mothership insists on organic, of course, but that’s up to you.

Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson warned that a Somalia-based terrorist group is encouraging “independent actors” to carry out attacks in Western countries, with the Mall of America in Minnesota among the specific targets, but he failed to mention that the U.S. continues to import hundreds of high-risk Islamic refugees from Somalia every month. The U.S. State Department’s refugee-resettlement program has placed more than 100,000 Somalis into U.S cities and towns since the early 1990s – nearly all of them Muslims hand-selected by the United Nations refugee agency. And Minnesota has become the most popular destination, with secondary hotspots in Maine, Ohio, Texas and Georgia.

Ice Cream Giant to Drop Milk with Monsanto’s rBST Growth Hormones In the face of a health-conscious collective, ice cream giant Breyers has decided to stop using milk from cows treated with the controversial, artificial growth hormone rBST. This news makes it even more apparent that a food awakening is happening as consumers demand additive-free food.

It is created using a genetically engineered E. coli bacteria, which has been banned in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Israel, and the European Union.

Marijuana didn’t cure Nikita, but she seemed to feel less pain during her final days, Kramer said.

By Jon Rappoport October 13, 2013 www.nomorefakenews.com Let’s stop screwing around and go to the heart of the matter. DEAR LEADER IS DESTROYING OUR MILITARY ONE DAY AT A TIME!
