https://libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/5-13-21-max-blumenthal-on-the-real-history-of-israel-palestine/ Scott talks to Max Blumenthal about the true state of affairs between Israel and Palestine, which you won’t hear about in most mainstream media sources. Although the situation is often depicted as two neighboring states engaged in a religious conflict, the truth is that the Palestinians are second-class citizens in what has become a de facto single apartheid state. The widely-publicized rocket attacks are the actions of an oppressed minority fighting back in the only way they can. Any violence against Israeli civilians is of course condemnable, but we can’t lose sight of the fact that Israel has a massive advantage in money, weapons and international support, and has been killing innocent Palestinians for decades. Scott and Blumenthal also discuss the extent to which Iran actually supports Hamas Discussed on the show: Oslo Accords “4 Million Bullets: The Untold Fight for Survival” (IMDb) “Norman Finkelstein on Israel & What’s happening Here” (YouTube) Do you condemn the killing of Palestinian children?

https://healthimpactnews.com/2021/barbara-loe-fisher-seeing-through-the-covid-19-spin-how-big-pharma-and-government-are-spending-billions-to-deceive-the-public-with-misinformation-on-covid-vaccines/ Seeing through the COVID-19 spin is a challenge even for those who have been writing and talking for years about the need to limit Big Pharma’s influence on health policy and law. Perhaps the greatest change I have seen in vaccine regulation, policymaking and law over the past four decades has been the development of public-private business partnerships between Big Pharma and the government. [1 2 3 4 5] That seismic change has affected how new vaccines are developed, licensed and regulated and is influencing what we see happening today. [6 7] Since the coronavirus pandemic was declared by government officials in early 2020, lawmakers have been persuaded to build the entire global pandemic response around a single experimental biological product. [8 9 10] That single product is generating billions of dollars in profits for liability free drug companies and their partners. [11 12] The COVID-19 spin is reaching dizzying new heights every day, [13 14] with fundamental facts about the experimental product’s risks and failures getting lost in the hard sell. At dinner time, if you turn on any major television network in the U.S., you will see that the evening news has turned into one long COVID vaccine commercial infused with a heavy dose of fear mongering. Before the pandemic declaration, we had learned to ignore prescription drug advertising in-between getting news of the day. Now newscasters and TV docs are Pharma’s new COVID “vaccine” sales reps and the only way to get away from the 24/7 sales pitch is to turn off the TV. Billions of Dollars Paid to TV Networks for DTC Pharma Ads We should not be surprised. The U.S. and New Zealand are the only two countries in the world that allow direct to consumer pharmaceutical product advertising. [15 16 17] In this country. Big Pharma pays US television networks five billion dollars per year to push use of drugs and vaccines. [18] Taking a page out of Big Tobacco’s old book and upping the ante, Big Pharma has become a business partner of government. [19] The COVID business deal is perhaps the single biggest one in the history of public health programs. [20 21 22] Already wealthy drug companies were given at least nine billion dollars from the government to develop experimental COVID vaccines in record breaking time, [23] shaving five to 10 years off the normal vaccine development, testing and licensing process. [24 25] But that wasn’t enough. Congress also handed companies a liability shield from lawsuits whenever the product government paid them to produce fails to work as advertised or a person is hurt by using it. [26] If you or a loved one dies or is permanently injured by an experimental or soon-to-be FDA licensed COVID vaccine, you cannot sue the drug company who made it, even if there is evidence the company could have made it less reactive or more effective.
