Microscopic 3D-Printed “Smart” Fish Nanobots to Swim in Bloodstream & Remove Toxins

A newly-developed technology at the University of California- San Diego called microfish will one day allow for tiny 3D-printed “smart” microbots to travel through a person’s bloodstream and deliver drugs to specific places in the body, as well as sense and remove toxins. The high-tech fish are extremely small, smaller than the width of a human hair. The revolutionary devices are extremely easy to create, but are remarkably high tech, with the ability to act as both a toxin sensing and detoxifying robot, according to researchers at UC-San Diego.

Boeing Tests X-Box-Controlled Laser Cannon

Drones have been turning up in strange places lately. For instance, back in April, a mailman delivered a campaign reform letter to Congress by landing a drone on the Capitol lawn and just a few days later, a radioactive drone turned up on top of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s office (Kuroda paradropping yen?). Then, in May, a drone showed up in Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids, Michigan and literally rained down money from the heavens.

The Police: Our Enemies in Blue?

The police are specialists in coercive force. Their distinguishing characteristic is the combination of surveillance and violence to make people do what people with power want them to do. That usually gets described in terms enforcing the law, but what I found in my research is that the real distribution of power is a much better indicator of how the police will act in any given situation. On the whole, they behave in ways that serve the interests of the powerful at the expense of the rest of us.

Yes – Animals Suffer from Genetically Modified Foods, Says Primatologist Jane Goodall

Goodall has joined forces with attorney Steven Druker in a book he penned to disclose the dangers of GM organisms on animals. Since much of the GM soy and corn grown in the US ends up in animal feed, she urges us to notice what happens to the animals once they’ve consumed a biotech-altered diet. Druker’s book focuses on FDA regulation (or lack thereof) of GMOs, detailing a cozy relationship with Monsanto and other Big Ag corporations. The attorney was also present at the recent National Press conference, and let the audience know what many Natural Society readers are already cognizant of – that FDA deputy commissioner Michael R. Taylor, used to work for Monsanto as the company’s VP.

Bill Clinton Attempted to Give Paid Speeches to North Korea and the Congo While Hillary was Secretary of State

With each passing day, it become clearer and clearer just what a crumbling charade of greed, cronyism and phony humanitarianism the Clinton family really is. In the latest revelation, we find out that Bill Clinton tried to get State Department support to deliver paid speeches to two of the most repressive regimes in the world: North Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
