YUM! YUM! All our food has the pesticide glyposate (Roundup)

You're Probably Consuming This 'Probable Carcinogen' Every Single Day
Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's popular RoundUp pesticide, is now present at all levels of the food chain.

For many people, a toasted bagel topped with honey might sound like a healthy breakfast choice. Others might prefer a bowl of oatmeal, cornflakes, or a hot plate of scrambled eggs. Few would likely welcome a dose of weed killer that has been linked to cancer in their morning meal. Yet that is exactly what private laboratory tests in the United States started showing with alarming frequency in 2014: residues of the world’s most widely used herbicide were making their way into American meals.

Testing since then, by both private and public researchers, has shown glyphosate residues not only in bagels, honey, and oatmeal but also in a wide array of products that commonly line grocery store shelves, including flour, eggs, cookies, cereal and cereal bars, soy sauce, beer, and infant formula. Indeed, glyphosate residues are so pervasive that they’ve been found in human urine. Livestock are also consuming these residues in grains used to make their feed, including corn, soy, alfalfa, and wheat. Glyphosate residues have been detected in bread samples in the United Kingdom for years, as well as in shipments of wheat leaving the United States for overseas markets. "Americans are consuming glyphosate in common foods on a daily basis," the Alliance for Natural Health said in its April 2016 report, which revealed glyphosate residues detected in eggs and coffee creamer, bagels and oatmeal.

Trump Federal employee freeze and National Park Service closures question

Anyone here a seasonal park service worker? Two of my friends who have been seasonal rangers for the past 7 yrs at the local monuments were supposed to start work in three days and they were just notified yesterday they will not have jobs (contracts to work were already signed "probably with clauses".

I live near Mountainair, NM and the main tourist pull is the three Salinas Monument mission ruins - Abo, Quarai and Grand Quivera. Our downtown is struggling and having these monuments open is a biggie for local business. My friends were told there would not be enough staff to keep all three open. I know Trump also has a freeze on "information" coming from all agencies.

Father's story just got worse and dumber in missing 3 yr old Sherin Mathews

The girl's father allegedly told detectives he directed the girl to stand next to a tree behind the fence at their home after she wouldn't drink her milk. The tree is across an alley and about 100 feet away from the home.

Mathews reportedly returned to get his daughter about 15 minutes later and discovered she was gone, according to an affidavit. He reportedly set out to try and find his daughter, to no avail.

He then went inside his home, HOPING SHE WOULD RETURN ON HER OWN, according to police Sgt. Kevin Perlich.

Mathews then did a LOAD OF LAUNDRY, according to Perlich, and wanted to WAIT FOR DAYLIGHT to search for her again.

(mother was sleeping and Mathews did not wake wife up to tell her Sherin was missing)

Republican senators lying when they said Christopher Steele would not meet with them

BUSTED: Maddow reveals senators were lying when they said British ‘dossier’ spy refused to meet with them

The infamous dossier gathered by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele got even closer investigation by Robert Mueller’s team after it was revealed the two met.

In her opening report Thursday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow explained that the vast majority of the things in the dossier have been proven correct. What is left to be proven, obviously, are the more salacious personal details. Her example was that the dossier claimed Russia was behind the hack of the DNC, which was eventually proven correct. Similarly, months before it was proven that President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization sought to build a Trump Tower Moscow project, the dossier revealed it. Long before there was proof that Russian government sources offered derogatory information about Hillary Clinton to the Trump campaign directly, Steele had the information in his dossier.

“So, a lot of this he did dead right,” Maddow said. “A lot of this that seemed nuts when we read this published in January. Since then it has been reported out and proven.”

Wednesday, it was reported that Muller has now taken over the FBI investigation to corroborate the dossier. Thursday the story broke that Mueller’s team met with Steele. The report revealed that the FBI and the intelligence community took the dossier far more seriously than it was reported.
