Nestlé Continues Stealing World’s Water During Drought









Nestlé is draining California aquifers. From Sacramento alone they take 80 MILLION gallons annually. They then sells the people’s water back to them at huge profit under dozens of popular brand names.
Nestlé has been draining California aquifers at an alarming rate. In Sacramento alone 80 they extract MILLION gallons annually.  Nestlé then turns around and sells the people’s own water back to them at a massive profit in the form of bottle water. But this is not even the worst of it, the multinational mega corporation has also been extracting this water with a permit that expired over 2 decades ago! 









This has inspired a law suit against the company but we all know that won’t result in any actual justice since the law system capitulates to who ever has the most money and can continuously fight it out in court.
This inexcusable behavior on the mega corporations part has only been able to take place with help from the government. People, however, are growing angry and tired of this unacceptable behavior which is ultimately costing them massive amount of money. Worse still, is this company has literally single handily caused a drought! Please think about that for a moment, and let it sink in.



















The city of Sacramento is in a record drought that has lasted several years – yet the multi billion dollar Nestlé Corporation continues to bottle public city water and then sell it back to the people at a huge profit. Do I have to explain how criminal and sick this is?
A coalition, which includes the crunchnestle alliance, the Story of Stuff Project, along with co-plaintiffs the Center for Biological Diversity and the Courage Campaign Institute have come together to file a lawsuit against the unethical corporation and charge that the company is draining up to 80 million gallons of water each year from Sacramento aquifers during the drought and don’t even have a valid permit to do so (not that would make it in any better either).
“Nestlé pays only 65 cents for each 470 gallons it pumps out of the ground – the same rate as an average residential water user. But the company can turn the area’s water around, and sell it back to Sacramento at mammoth profits,” the coalition  went on record as saying.
Nestlé is currently the number one supplier of the world’s bottled water (and thief of natural water reserves), including popular brands like Perrier, San Pellegrino, Pure Life, Ice Mountain, Zephyrhills, Poland Spring, and Deer Park among other.
But this corruption is just the tip of the iceberg. Elsewhere in the world, workers engaged in mass hunger strikes for the companies criminal and corrupt ways, such as Oscar Lopez Trivino have been assassinated. In fact, fifteen Nestlé workers have been assassinated by a paramilitary organization which has discouraged others from protesting. To imagine this is some how just all a coincidence is ridiculous.
It is time for us to wake up and realize that there is no difference between criminal corporations and criminal governments and banks and the military industrial complex. They all work together against us!
But don’t take my word for how sick and corrupt Nestle is, check out what their CEO had to say about how he thinks water should not be a human right below;

Rusty Patched Bumble Bee to be Listed as Endangered Species in US













The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed listing a species of bee Native to North America, as an endangered species. The rusty patched bumble bee, a pollinator native to the upper Midwest and Northeastern United States, is the first species of bee in the continental United States to be formally proposed for listing under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.
[The] Endangered Species Act safeguards are now the only way the bumble bee would have a fighting chance for survival,” Sarina Jepsen, of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, told Reuters.
The rusty patched bumble bee, named for the red blotch on their abdomen, is one of 47 varieties of native bumble bees in the United States and Canada. The rusty bumble bee used to roam at least 26 states in the Midwest and Northeast; however, in recent years, sightings of the bees have been limited to a small fraction of these states. In fact, since the late 1990s, rusty bumble bee populations haveplummeted by as much as 90 percent, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service.
Bumble bees, as distinguished from domesticated honey bees, are responsible for pollinating about a third of crops in the U.S., making them vital to agricultural sustainability. It is estimated that bumble bees’ annual economic value to farms stands at around $3.5 billion.
As pollinators, rusty patched bumblebees contribute to our food security and the healthy functioning of our ecosystems,” the Fish and Wildlife Service said in a statement.
Disease, pesticides, climate change, and habitat loss have been named as the factors driving bee populations into decline and, in some cases, to extinction. According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, more than a quarter of the 47 varieties of native bumble bees in the United States and Canada face a risk of extinction.
According to Reuters, Jepsen believes the protections proposed for the rusty bumble bee will intensify the debate over the degree to which so-called neonicotinoid pesticides have contributed to the decline of native bees.
Neonicotinoid insecticides, one of the most widely used insecticides in the world, have been proven to have a number of devastating effects on honey and wild bee populations. Evidence from recent studies have suggested that when exposed to the pesticide, bees can become susceptible to viral infections and mites.
Another study, published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, found that male bees exposed to thiamethoxam and clothianidin, two chemicals from the neonicotinoid family of insecticides, exhibited a 40 percent decrease in living sperm. The same study also found that neonicotinoids also significantly reduce the lifespan of male bees; reduce the number of bumblebee queens produced; and severely cut the survival and reproduction of honeybee queens.
Earlier this year, the first long-term study of neonic impacts on wild bee populations revealed a strong link between the large-scale, long-term decline in wild bees across England and the use of neonicotinoid insecticides. The study, published in the journal Nature Communications, concluded that bees exposed to neonicotinoid treated oilseed rape were three times more likely to experience population declines than bees foraging from other crops or wild plants.
Our results provide the first evidence that sub-lethal impacts of neonicotinoid exposure can be linked to large-scale population extinctions of wild bee species, with these effects being strongest for species that are known to forage on oilseed rape crops,” the researchers concluded.
The public comment period initiated by the proposed listing runs through Nov. 21, 2016. During this period, members of the public, scientists and government agencies are welcome to submit expert opinions and other input that could aid the agency in its decision.

Edward Snowden Just Warned Everyone Not To Use Google’s New Messaging App















Unless you want law enforcement to be able to trawl all your communications, don’t — under any circumstances — use Google’s newest messaging app, Allo, Edward Snowden just warned.
“What is #Allo? A Google app that records every message you ever send and makes it available to police upon request,” the whistleblower advised in a tweet.


Google had earlier claimed it would include end-to-end encryption, “storing messages transiently and in non-identifiable form,” similar to its prospective primary competitor, WhatsApp. However, the company announced drastic anti-privacy changes on Wednesday — the very day it rolled out the app.
When users remember to begin a conversation in “Incognito Mode,” as can be done for Google searches, their conversations won’t be stored indefinitely, as it still provides end-to-end encryption. But conversations not expressly begun that way will be stored forever, where they would be available for any law enforcement body requesting the information.
As Snowden pointed out, anyone thinking it would be difficult for police or, say, the Department of Homeland Security, or National Security Agency to get their hands on these communications should think otherwise.


In 2015, the Guardian reported this April, the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) — the secret court ostensibly overseeing domestic spying, which rules on the validity of requests by the FBI and other agencies to gain access to people’s data — did not turn down a single request of nearly 1,500.
“The court received 1,457 requests last year on behalf of the National Security Agency and FBI for authority to intercept communications, including email and phone calls, according to a Justice Department memo […] The court did not reject any of the applications in whole or in part, the memo said,” according to the Guardian.
Included with Allo, users receive an extra helping of Big Brother — features like “Smart Reply” and “Google Assistant.” While the latter “answers questions and helps you search for things directly in your chat,” as RT reports, the former employs artificial intelligence in order to predict answers to make responding as simple as pressing a button.
However, therein lies part of the privacy concern — that convenience comes with an asterisk in bold.
“How does Allo plan on predicting your every word and witty emoji, you ask? ‘The more you use it, the more it improves over time,’ which basically means they’ll collect and store as much of your data as possible and then use artificial intelligence to guess your replies,” Zero Hedge writes.
As The Verge reported last week, Google opted to forego (our already ever-dwindling) privacy in favor of improving the Smart Reply feature, since artificial intelligence perform better when it has more data at its disposal.
And that, of course, is key to Snowden’s and privacy advocates’ concerns. The more data Google collects, the more would be available to the increasingly erratic and paranoid government that would otherwise have you believe you have nothing to worry about if you’ve done nothing wrong.
Just because you aren’t engaged in criminal activity or planning a terrorist attack doesn’t mean the government wouldn’t love to know everything about you. Environmental activists, for one of many examples, are considered in the State’s notoriously-inclusive watchlists to be as dangerous as radicals fighting for the Islamic State.
Even those who don’t consider themselves politically or otherwise active might want to consider whose eyes are peering into their lives. It’s doubtful anyone would invite a Google techie or a cop to physically sit and watch everything they do — but if you plan to use Allo, in essence, that’s precisely what you’re doing.

A Strange Situation In France: Something Big Might Happen




In France, In a town called Saumur, gardeners employed by the town made a strange discovery. They went to work on an old church. Behind that church there are old natural caves. When they arrived there they saw 3 men getting in a white van and leaving the place. So they went to see inside that cave. They found ISIS flags, audio and video stuff, newspapers in Arabic, a generator.. So, they immediately alerted the local police, which in turn alerted all the other services of the state : national police, anti-terrorist forces, the prosecutor of the republic, the scientific police, etc..
Turns out, it was “just an exercise”, led by the military center for nuclear, chemical, biological and radio-logical defense, allegedly of course. But no one was aware of that exercise, not the local police, not the anti-terrorist forces etc.., no one but some general in the army. The question is, why would they need ISIS flags and stuff in Arabic for an exercise, and a generator ? Why didn’t they inform at least the local police that there was an exercise going on ? Because that’s usually the case. Usually government officials are informed, and the local population, too in some cases.
It is to be noted that they almost always find ISIS flags in some car, or in some apartment shortly after a terrorist attack, and also stuff in Arabic. This looks like a deep state operation. An operation that is led by some state service, in the shadows.
There are almost no articles in French MSM regarding this, and if there are, it is just a short article to say that military personnel have been mistaken with terrorists.
Only this link digs deeper and ask all the relevant questions.
Here are the other MSM link:
Everything is in French.
