I trust this finds you fit and well.


Did you hear what Julia Gillard’s raise is going to be this year? $90,000. That means her income will be $470,000 a year.

The pay increase doesn’t just apply to Gillard. At a time when the government is planning to cut spending in a number of vital areas, this pay raise will add an extra $40,000 a year to the salary of even the most junior parliamentarian.

This move was not even brought up for debate in Parliament, a fact which Bob Brown, leader of the Greens party, called “disgraceful.”

I signed the petition to tell our leaders that they don’t need an extra $50,000 or so a year. Will you join me?

DHL Attachment Trojan

At the time of writing there is a new spam campaign masquerading as a shipping notification from DHL that none of the major anti-virus providers are capable of catching and quarantining. As such, this scam has the potential to be successful and can have serious consequences.

Your users may already have messages in their inbox, therefore, we recommend that you take the following action:

  • Notify all your email users about this threat
  • Caution your users not to open any attachments from DHL or any unknown sender
  • Be aware that this is a rapidly-changing virus. Even if your anti-virus provider lists it as covered, you may still be at risk.

Share the Truth About Vaccinations With Your Children

Stephanie Messenger had her baby die in her arms at 12 months of age due to an adverse reaction from a vaccination. Needless to say she does not want that to happen to other mums. What is unusual is the lengths to which she will go to take responsibility for getting the message out to other mums and dads, even to the extent of doping lecture tours and now writing a children’s book.

Australian Journalist Wins Prestigious Award for Exposing Flu Vaccine Scandal

Natasha Bita, a journalist for The Australian has just won a Walkley Award (the Australian equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize) for an in-depth article series on the CSL Afluria flu vaccine, a shot that caused convulsions in one percent of Australian infants who received it.

To put this vaccine scandal in perspective, the CDC states that ‘seizures can occur after vaccination,’ 33% of infants who have a first seizure will have more seizures and 10% of infants who have one seizure can develop epilepsy. According to the Merck Manual (the largest-selling medical textbook), seizures are a symptom of encephalitis, which the Merck Manual defines as a vaccine adverse reaction. Vaccine-induced encephalitis can leave a spectrum of permanent brain damage in its wake – post-encephalitic syndrome (aka epilepsy and autism). In other words, kids that have convulsions from Afluria can have lifelong neurological disabilities.

Incredibly, the defective CSL flu vaccine Afluria is still on the market in the US: FDA-approved and CDC-recommended. The only concession US vaccine authorities have made to this Afluria scandal is to raise the recommended age for this vaccine, but even that feeble response is colored by a direction to give Afluria to young kids anyway if no other flu vaccine is available.

This vaccinate-at-any-cost mentality displays the utter depravity of US vaccine authorities. They really don’t care about vaccine adverse reactions or the victims of defective vaccines. When vaccine regulators are so transparently irresponsible, it is up to individuals and families to defend their own health by rejecting the gung-ho vaccine recommendations of the CDC, FDA and medical profession.

This award is a smack in the face to asleep-at-the-wheel US journalists, who are being instructed by the National Press Foundation (at the behest of Seth Mnookin, Gates’ GAVI vaccine alliance and minions of Paul Offit) to censor all negative reports on vaccine issues and stick to big pharma’s and the CDC’s party line.

Death To The Invaders!

At the first sign that you’ve contracted the flu, use known pathogen destroyers to crush any viruses that do start to flourish in your body during the incubation phase, when they are most vulnerable. You can identify the incubation phase at the point that you feel the first onset of sickness, before it hits full bore. Symptoms include a scratchy throat, unexplained muscle aches, slight fever, and/or the first hints of congestion. Natural antipathogens will do a better, safer job at eliminating the virus than any pharmaceutical antivirals such as Tamiflu can. Pathogen destroyers don’t build immune function as immune boosters do. Instead, they "free up" immune function by directly destroying pathogens in the body that would otherwise "occupy the attention" of your immune system. Some of the most powerful options are olive leaf extract, oil of wild mountain oregano, and garlic.

North Korea may soon be able to strike USA with ultimate doomsday weapon that deactivates (nearly) all electronics

This article has some useful tips that apply to our almost exclusive reliance on electronics. These tips could come in just as handy in the event of a certain type and size of solar flare.

Who Will Kill You? You or Your Doctor?

The ancient Greeks used to say, "We dig our graves with our spoon."

Fast forward 2,000 years.

While that is every bit as true, may be even more, today as it was 2,000 years ago, a hidden danger is present of which most are not aware.

In this week’s excerpt from "Lessons from the Miracle Doctors," Jon Barron exposes the failure of the modern medical paradigm.

"It is not a coincidence that time after time, when doctors go on strike, mortality rates drop dramatically in those cities or countries. In 1976, in Bogota, Columbia, medical doctors went on strike for fifty-two days, with only emergency care available. The death rate dropped by 35 percent.

In 1976, in Los Angeles County, a similar doctors’ strike resulted in an 18 percent drop in mortality. As soon as the strike was over, the death rate went back to previous levels.

A 50 percent decrease in mortality occurred in Israel in 1973 when there was a thirty-day doctors’ strike—with similar results seen in doctor strikes in 1983 and 2000!

This should not be surprising when you also note the Institute of Medicine’s report entitled To Err is Human, which states that medical errors cause as many as 98,000 deaths each year in the U.S. alone, more than traffic accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS. Right behind prescription drugs, medical error is the fifth leading cause of death.

Understand, this is not an attack on medical doctors, the vast majority of whom are extremely competent, highly dedicated, and often even heroic. Nevertheless, it is important to realize that when it comes to the major diseases of our time, the modern medical paradigm of searching for “magic bullets” and managing symptoms with drugs has failed miserably."

"But yeah, no dinner tonight."

One of my friends resolved to make up for eating some "home-made cookies and sweets" by skipping dinner. She normally eats very healthy so it’s probably no big deal for her but if someone less disciplined were to make a habit out of the practice... ...this is what I would say...

Hmmm... shortage of viewpoints, as you know, there are as many as there are people, by definition.

Here’s another one for you. Every time you eat a low nutrient\empty carb food and you "make up for it" by not eating a high nutrient meal, you are creating a nutrient deficit.

Nutrient deficits generate disease. (“8 of the top 10 causes of death are directly related to poor nutrition.” Dr. C. Everett Koop, former US Surgeon General.)

The alternative is to eat your normal dinner in order to get the nutrients your body so desperately needs in this polluted toxin bowl called civilised society, and work off the extra empty carbs you ate with more exercise. Sort of like a healthy penalty to penalise the down statistic! :-)

Wow! I just put two datums together. The other two leading causes of death, numbers 4 and 5 in the top 10, are prescription drugs and medical error!

So eating right and staying away from the doctor are the two single healthiest things you can do.

Awesome advice to plan into your 2012 action plan!

Some Thoughts From Me on "I Tried It And It Was Hard"

Anything you do for the first time leaves you somewhere on the scale from "it felt foreign" to "boy that was difficult" to "gee that was really hard" to "that’s impossible to do". That’s why it takes 10,000 hours of practice and training to become world class at any thing.

If it is worthwhile it will take effort, perseverance, courage, determination and persistence to accomplish it. Sometimes the obstacles you have to overcome are daunting, challenging, overwhelming or discouraging. That’s where the mental bit comes in. That is the difference at the top of any field. The winner had a better handle on how to overcome the inclination to quit, fail or lose. They knew how to remotivate, reinspire and reenergise their distracted mind and exhausted body to push past the pain to attain the gain.

May you always create obstacles to overcome and may you always find the strength to overcome your obstacles.

Albert Einstein

A quote from Albert Einstein

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of our consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

A Message to Garcia

I was fortunate enough to have this booklet recommended to me when I was about 15. With the marvel of the internet and the grace of people who make material available on it, here it is for you to enjoy for naught but the small investment of time it takes to read it. You know someone who needs it. Feel free to pass it on to them.
