US to send 1,000s of extra Marines to East Asia to counter China – report

The Pentagon reportedly plans a “major muscle movement” from the Middle East to East China, with thousands of extra Marines to be deployed. The goal is to “persuade Pacific nations to stand with the US” and not China. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the US plans to boost its military presence in the East Pacific with rotating deployment of Marine Expeditionary Units, or MEUs. An MEU is a group of about 2,200 Marines who operate from amphibious assault ships and have their own aircraft, tanks, heavy weapons, and other resources. A typical deployment lasts for seven months and may involve missions on the shore like patrols or military-to-military training.

Why the CDC Lies about its Fluoridation Data

The Centers for Disease Control operates a website called “My Water’s Fluoride.”  On the home page it states:  “It is important to know the level of fluoride in your drinking water.  My Water’s Fluoride (MWF) allows consumers to learn about the fluoride level in their drinking water.”  However, the fluoride levels seen on the website are often false.  If a water system is adding fluoride to the tap water, a practice known as fluoridation, this website automatically assigns it a “default” fluoride level of 0.70mg/L regardless of what actual testing shows or what fluoride level the water system is trying to achieve.
