EXPOSED! Proof US Gov’t Tested Poisonous Chemicals On Unsuspecting American Citizens.


Many people have said to me that the reason why chem trails cannot be true because there is no way that the United States government would intentionally poison their own people. You are about to have that myth shattered into a million, tiny pieces.

Meet Lisa Martino-Taylor

Lisa Martino-Taylor is a sociologist whose life’s work has been to uncover details of the Army’s ultra-secret military experiments carried out in St. Louis and other cities during the 1950s and 60s.

“The study was secretive for reason. They didn’t have volunteers stepping up and saying yeah, I’ll breathe zinc cadmium sulfide with radioactive particles,” said Martino-Taylor.
Army archive pictures show how the tests were done in Corpus Christi, Texas in the 1960s. In Texas, planes were used to drop the chemical. But in St. Louis, the Army placed chemical sprayers on buildings and station wagons.

Documents confirmed that city officials were kept in the dark about the tests. The Cold War cover story was that the Army was testing smoke screens to protect cities from a Russian attack. The truth, according to Martino-Taylor was much more sinister.

“It was pretty shocking. The level of duplicity and secrecy. Clearly they went to great lengths to deceive people,” she said. By making hundreds of Freedom of Information Act requests, she uncovered once-classified documents that confirm the spraying of zinc cadmium sulfide.

Martino-Taylor says the greatest concentration was centered on the Pruitt-Igoe housing complex, just northwest of downtown St. Louis in the Carr Square neighborhood. It was home to 10,000 low income people. An estimated 70 percent she says were children under the age of 12.

“This was a violation of all medical ethics, all international codes, and the military’s own policy at that time,” said Martino-Taylor. 

In 1994, then-Congressman Richard Gephardt (D-St. Louis), asked the Army to open its records and explain the St. Louis testing. At the time Rep. Gephardt said, “We want to make sure nothing went on that would harm anyone, and that all the fact are out on the table.”

Documents released in the 90s showed the Army placed sprayers on a former Knights of Columbus building on Lindell and in Forest Park. The Army always insisted the chemical compound was safe. Martino-Taylor believes documents prove otherwise.

“There is a lot of evidence that shows people in St. Louis and the city, in particular minority communities, were subjected to military testing that was connected to a larger radiological weapons testing project,” she said. For the first time, she links the St. Louis testing to a company called US Radium, a company notorious for lawsuits involving radioactive contamination of its workers.
“US radium had this reputation where they had been found legally liable for producing a radioactive powdered paint that killed many young women who painted fluorescent watch tiles,” said Martino-Taylor. While the Army admits it added a florescent substance to the zinc cadmium compound, details of whether it was radioactive remains secret. Documents uncovered to date indicate the Army never conducted follow-up studies to see whether the compound caused long term health issues.

In 1972, after years of crime, poverty, and decline, the government destroyed the Pruitt -Igoe housing complex.

Chuck Pierce: See the Unlocking and Shaking in the Next Three Years.



Chuck Pierce

Hear the clock ticking, for the Lord says I have now catapulted you into the three years ahead.  And this day the dearest of My Months I say to You I am moving you against gates that have never been moved before.  And I am causing those gates that have withstood you in the past to have to come loose so they open in days ahead!  I say to you move strategically day by day and month by month until the gate that has held back yourblessing opens up.

For I say in the 3rd year the War of the Kingdoms will begin and kingdom will rise against kingdom.  But I say I have a Kingdom now I’m preparing and I will remember this Kingdom and the seed and the seed’s seed of this Kingdom.  So I say to you know this I have a Kingdom that will triumph.

For I am beginning a highway out of Egypt but I’ll redo the highway that you’re on.  And I say now, the demons that have been trafficking and even creating trafficking throughout the earth, I Am going to unnest their headquarters.

And I’ll surprise you with the leaders of this Nation, for I have ways to cause them to bow their knees, and you think they’re going one way but you watch Me knock the feet out from under them.  And you watch them see Me in a way they’ve never seen Me before!

You’ll hear of shakings from North to West!  You’ll hear that I have come from Alaska to Maine to shake but it will be the center of this Nation that I now shake saith the Lord.  And I will cause that which has been hidden and controlling the forces of this land to shake down!

For I say to you make favor with those that even have come into places and you say, but they have evil character. I can cause every Pharaoh in this land and the lands that you’re a part of to favor you in days ahead!

And even today I call you My Army that is unstoppable. But even as in the natural there have been swarms that have crossed the Atlantic that have shown up in the most unusual places.  I call you My Kingdom Swarm and you shall invade the kingdoms of the earth and you shall extract that which is needed and you will bring it into My Kingdom says the Lord.

And that which the enemy meant to destroy through trafficking I will raise them up as an unstoppable army in the days ahead for that generation will be My Generation says the Lord!

So I say shout that the kingdoms of this earth are becoming My Kingdoms saith the Lord. And decree that the prisoners will be let go and they will come back to My House and this is a season My Altar will be filled!

A new baptism I’ll give you and I say to you My very Finger I will place in My People’s keeping.  And I say when you point your finger demons will flee!

And I say I’m going to open your eyes to those around you and you’re going to say they’re of a different kingdom. And I will say to you they are Mine bring them in now!

And in this year of honey I will cause a new hunger to arise throughout the lands for My Word saith the Lord.  And where you have known My Word in the past you will taste and see My Word in a different way!

When the Presence of God Drives You to Your Knees.

I had never been “under the power” before. Now, looking up at the ceiling of the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship, I wondered if this first touch from God was the beginning of revival for me.

It was Nov. 24, 1994. Over 18 years before, Bill, my husband, and I had left Texas and had gone to pastor a church in Pittsburgh with little more than a promise from God that one day a “river” would flow into our lives and out the doors of our church, watering the desert around us.

But after 18 years all we had seen was desert and no water. We had been up and down on a roller coaster of hope and disappointment.

As a steady stream of would-be parishioners came and went, the fear of abandonment only increased our pain. Feelings of failure pervaded our thought lives as we reeled in the wake of church splits. Too many nights I lay awake wondering where we had gone wrong, why had we missed God’s blessing.

Then in 1994, in the aftermath of surgery, I began to suffer from hormone shock. Panic attacks assaulted my already fragile emotions as waves of fear rolled over me. The wilderness had done its work well. I had become desperate for Jesus.

I was too numb from bracing myself against the storms of ministry to hope that this experience on the floor in Toronto was the beginning of the fulfillment of God’s long-ago promise. For more than 20 years since first being filled with the Holy Spirit, I had seen no value in what was happening to me now. I suppose I was among those children who wanted God to touch them but never expected that He would.

I had never fallen or responded outwardly to the Holy Spirit. But now, to my surprise, I was “glued” to the floor, afraid to move for fear of disrupting the sweet sense of His presence.

A flicker of hope leaped within me, along with a new sense that Jesus really loved me after all. I repented of my unbelief, jumped off the banks of apathy and dived into the river. For the first time in nearly two decades, I let God touch me.

The Holy Spirit must have accompanied us home from Toronto. The following Wednesday night my husband called the 60 or so members of our fledgling congregation together.

To our amazement the Spirit’s presence began to hover over our tiny group. Spontaneously, people started to worship and weep as we told them what we had seen and experienced.

Bill promised to pray at the next service for anyone who wanted prayer. He had not been outwardly touched when he received prayer in Toronto. In fact, he had felt nothing.

He knew only what he had seen-hundreds of people, many of them pastors who had literally crawled to Toronto with the same sense of hopelessness we’d had, coming back to life with the hope that maybe, just maybe, this was real revival.

Bill kept his promise at the following service. As he reached out his hand to touch those who wanted prayer, he purposely touched them gently and then put his hands behind his back to avert any conclusions that this was somehow hyped by a heavy-handed preacher pushing would-be receivers.

The presence of God began to fall upon first one and then another of our members. These weren’t strangers, as in Toronto; these were people we had known for years.

Soon the floor of our church was covered with the bodies of people responding to God in the same way we had seen in Toronto. Only none of them had ever seen Toronto! In fact, most of them had never had any outward manifestation in response to prayer before that day.

The outward signs were only the beginning. Lives began to change. Our once subdued children’s pastor was instantly set free from a three-year depression as she drummed her feet on the floor and waved her arms in the air.

One of our congregation’s most jovial members stood and wept loudly and openly as the Holy Spirit touched him sovereignly in a service, delivering him from a depression he had kept hidden from all of us.

Almost every member was being touched. Then healing miracles began to happen. Within a few weeks, five people had received documented healings confirmed by radiologists.

For me, however, the greatest miracle was taking place in my own once-cynical heart. I was falling in love with Jesus all over again.

Nearly four years had passed. I received prayer-mostly from ordinary people, not well-known ministers-hundreds of times in big and small churches flowing in this same river of blessing, and the sense of the Lord’s presence has flourished in my life. Waves of panic have been washed away by wave after wave of His healing love.

Now the trickle has become a gushing river in my soul. It has carried me into dimensions of His love I never knew existed, as well as into foreign nations and even prisons.

In Spain I saw this river touch a Muslim man, hardened by the bruises of life. He began to shake as the Holy Spirit’s presence sovereignly fell upon Him, and He turned immediately to Christ.

In England I watched a teen-age boy, unsaved and skeptical, fall to the ground under the influence of God’s power, then sit up and give his life to Jesus. In prisons, I’ve seen laughter and spiritual drunkenness overcome once-hardened sex offenders and murderers who have then turned to Christ.

I’ve seen widows healed of their searing grief. I’ve seen hopeless addicts gradually restored to lasting sobriety through repeated doses of His soaking love. I’ve seen deadly tumors disappear both suddenly and gradually under repeated touches of the Holy Spirit.

But while the river is blessing multitudes, others are wondering whether or not it is God. In the beginning I, too, was a skeptic. I ridiculed this precious outpouring, despising the laughter and all I still do not fully understand.

When I saw the river’s powerful restorative effects, however, I was faced with a choice. Would there ever be any substitute for that final risky leap of faith?

No. So I jumped in.

I’ve given myself to practically every expression of His power and love. I’ve unashamedly made 22 trips from Pittsburgh to Toronto to enjoy the meetings. I’ve received “soaking prayer” over 500 times, allowing the Holy Spirit to touch me in practically every service I’ve attended, both here and abroad.

Isn’t this extreme? Perhaps. But how would a dying man in a scorching desert react if he suddenly happened upon a pure, deep river? Would you consider his behavior extreme if he threw himself into the waters and began to drink?

Ultimately, I decided that there are no toxic levels of the Holy Spirit. Can anyone, after all, receive too much of Jesus’ love, too much of His joy, too much of His peace? Can any of us receive too much of the Father’s blessing?

Some ask, “Is it renewal-or revival?” I guess that depends on how dead you were when it started!

Whatever it’s called, I believe this is the beginning of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our generation. “There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God” (Ps. 46:4, NKJV)-and the river is here!

Ted Cruz Hints He Might Vote for ‘Terrific’ Rick Perry in 2016.


Image: Ted Cruz Hints He Might Vote for 'Terrific' Rick Perry in 2016

By Lisa Barron

Sen. Ted Cruz says Texas Gov. Rick Perry is “terrific,” despite the Republican governor’s past swipes at the state’s junior senator for his involvement in the government shutdown, among other things.

Cruz told the Dallas Morning News in a recent interview that under Perry, the Lone Star State‘s economy has been “remarkable.” He even suggested he might vote for Perry in the GOP primary should the governor decide to repeat his 2012 bid for the White House in 2016.

“Rick Perry’s been a terrific governor,” he said, adding: “I can tell you this: as a voter, the person for whom I intend to vote in the 2016 Republican primary is whoever is standing up and leading, effectively fighting for free-market principles and the Constitution.”

Perry, who has not announced whether he will seek the presidency again, has insulted Cruz in recent months. During a trip to Israel and England in October, he called the government shutdown in October that was championed by his fellow Republican “political theater” and told the Washington Times that the senator’s name had not been mentioned overseas.

Cruz has also been mentioned as a possible 2016 GOP presidential candidate, but a November survey by Public Policy Polling found both good and bad news for the tea party favorite.

While he is by far the top choice of Texas Republicans to be the party’s presidential candidate in 2016, 50 percent of all Texans say Cruz has been bad for the state’s reputation, compared to 37 percent who think he’s been good for it.

Dallas Billionaire, GOP Supporter Harold Simmons Dead at 82.


Dallas billionaire and heavyweight GOP political donor Harold Simmons, who has given millions of dollars to Republican candidates, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry, has died. He was 82.

Simmons, born to two school teachers in East Texas, became one of the richest men in the country with interests ranging from energy to chemicals. A spokesman for Simmons, Chuck McDonald, says Simmons died Saturday in Dallas. He says he does not know the cause of death.

Simmons’ wife, Annette Simmons, tells The Dallas Morning News her husband died at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas.

Perry called Simmons “a true Texas giant” who rose from humble beginnings.

Over the years, Simmons has donated tens of millions of dollars, including to charities, education groups and a Dallas medical center.

Simmons, along with Texas businessman Bob Perry, were among the last of an era of GOP megadonors. Perry died earlier this year at age 80.

While the overwhelming amount of Simmons’ donations were to Republican candidates and conservative causes, he recently donated to Planned Parenthood and to a Dallas LGBT center.

The Center for Public Integrity ranked him the second highest donor in the 2011-12 election cycle, giving almost $31 million along with his wife. They also gave to super PACS supporting Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry, Politico reports.

He started his business career with a single drug store that he developed into a chain before selling it to Eckerd. His net worth at the time of his death was $10 billion, according to Forbes, which ranked him the 40th richest person in America.

Simmons also saw his share of trouble. He was fined $19,800 for contributing above the then-federal limit of $25,000 per person. And in the mid-1990s he almost lost his fortune when his daughters sued him over a trust he had established and named himself the sole trustee.

In 2010, D magazine reported that a subsidiary of his company, Contran, had multiple lawsuits filed over environmental practices.

“Harold Simmons was one of my best friends, and it’s never easy to say goodbye to close friends,” businessman T. Boone Pickens told The Dallas Morning News. “Harold accomplished so much in his life. He was a passionate person — passionate about his family, his business, philanthropy and politics.”

“Harold Simmons was a true Texas giant, rising from humble beginnings and seizing the limitless opportunity for success we so deeply cherish in our great state,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry said.

Cruz Takes Action to Renounce Canadian Citizenship.


Image: Cruz Takes Action to Renounce Canadian Citizenship

By Greg Richter

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has hired lawyers to officially renounce his Canadian citizenship and expects the process to be completed in 2014, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Cruz says he was not aware of his dual citizenship until it was brought to his attentionby the newspaper earlier this year.

Cruz’s parents were living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, when he was born on Dec. 22, 1970. Though his mother was an American citizen and his father a Cuban citizen at the time, Cruz became an automatic Canadian citizen just by being born in that country. The United States has the same policy.

But Cruz was also born an American citizen since at least one of his parents, in this case his mother, was an American citizen. Cruz’s father has since become a naturalized American. The Cruz family moved to the United States when Ted was 4 years old.

The dual citizenship doesn’t disqualify Cruz for elected office, including the presidency, but many think his circumstances could recall the “birther” movement, in which some conservative foes of President Barack Obama challenged his qualifications because they believe he was not born in the United States.

Like Cruz’s situation, Obama’s father was not a U.S. citizen, but his mother was. That aside, Hawaiian officials have produced a birth certificate showing he was born in the state of Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961.

Though Cruz is just finishing up his freshman year in the U.S. Senate he already is being talked about as a possible GOP frontrunner in the 2016 presidential primaries.

Cruz told The Dallas Morning News he has not attempted to renounce his citizenship previously because he wasn’t even aware he had it. His mother had told him he would have had to make an affirmative act to have claimed it.

Further, he said, “There was no reason to retain counsel to analyze Canadian law, because it wasn’t relevant to anything I was doing.”

Now, serving as a U.S. Senator, he says, he believes it is improper to be a citizen of another country. He does not, however, have any ill will toward America’s northern neighbor, he said.

As for a presidential bid, Cruz gave the same line he always does when asked about any political plans: “My political perspective is focused on representing the state of Texas.”

DNC Sends Email Preparing To Defend Against Obama Impeachment.


The Democratic National Committee (DNC) sent out a paranoid email Saturday evening urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can’t impeach President Obama.

impeach-obama
The email, subject line “Impeachment,” was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC’s 2014 efforts. “What do these people all have in common?,” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.

The DNC email discussed the “I-Word” and said that “Republicans are actually excited about the idea.”

“Show these Republicans that they are way, way off-base, and give President Obama a Congress that has his back,” according to the DNC email, noting that Democrats need to win 17 GOP House seats to reclaim a majority.

The DNC, which recently expanded its political tactics to include boycotting independent news outlets, previously supported the last president to be impeached: Bill Clinton.

Obama’s staff changed key talking points on the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack; his Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election cycle; and Obama personally lied to the American people when he told them that they could keep their existing doctors and health insurance plans under Obamacare.

Obama’s expansion of executive branch authority is “setting the stage for something very dangerous in the future” according to Republican Rep. Justin Amashsource- Daily Caller.

Ted Cruz: No Surprise Washington Establishment Pushed Back Against Me.


Image: Ted Cruz: No Surprise Washington Establishment Pushed Back Against Me

By Greg Richter

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, spent his first year in Washington making a name for himself and making enemies in both parties.

The tea party favorite told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday he isn’t surprised at the negative reception he received for his efforts.

“Nobody should be surprised if you’re trying to change Washington that the Washington establishment pushes back,” Cruz told reporter Jonathan Karl.

Cruz told Karl it wasn’t him personally who had such influence, but the tea party movement he represents. Cruz was called a “wacko bird” by fellow GOP Sen. John McCain n the spring, and by fall was leading Republicans in both houses of Congress to reject a budget deal that led to a partial government shutdown.

The shutdown hurt Republicans politically, but Cruz doesn’t think his party is to blame.

“I think it was absolutely a mistake for President [Barack] Obama and [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid to force a government shutdown,” he told “This Week.”

Karl noted that Republican House Speaker John Boehner was critical of Cruz and outside conservative groups over the shutdown.

“I can’t help what other people say,” Cruz replied.

He called being a runner up to the pope for Time magazine’s “Man of the Year” as a “very strange thing,” but also admitted being the subject of a best-selling coloring book was also “a sign that the world is a crazy place.”

The book, not authorized by Cruz, says that millions of Americans see Obamacare, the president’s signature healthcare law, as being more dangerous than any war.

Questioned by Karl whether he agreed with that statement, Cruz answered, “No, of course not.”

Feds Charge Texas Man With Hate Crime in ‘Knockout Game’ Attack.


Eric Holder‘s Justice Department has charged a white suburban Houston man with a federal hate crime for sucker-punching a 79-year-old black man in a “knockout game,” a violent trend that has been sweeping the nation.

“The plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?” Conrad Barrett, 27, allegedly said in a cellphone call that was recorded, the Houston Chronicle reported Thursday, citing court documents.

The sick game is played when one or more youths decide to knock down a stranger, preferably with one punch, as they pass by. The event often is recorded so the proof  can be posted on the Internet.

It’s the first time the Obama administration has taken action on the distressing trend, The Washington Times reported, although unlike most reported “knockout” cases, in this instance the accused is white and the victim black.

According to the complaint in the Texas case, similar incidents occurred as early as 1992, and the Los Angeles Times reported attacks have been reported in St. Louis, New Jersey, New York, Washington, D.C., and Chicago, among other areas.

An assault attributed to the knockout game reportedly killed a Vietnamese immigrant in 2011 in St. Louis. At least one legislator in Illinois has called for tougher penalties, thTimes said.

Many of the victims in news accounts have been white and their assailants black, but hate-crimes charges have been rare, The Washington Times reported.

In New York, knockout game attacks have been on the rise since September, according to Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. At least one was caught by surveillance cameras in which a 19-year-old Jewish youth carrying a camera was knocked to the ground, a CBS affiliate reported.

Rabbi Yaacov Behrman told the CBS he believes the assaults are part of a disturbing game by some African-American teens.

“They’re playing a game: ‘knockout.’ ‘Knock out the Jew,’ maybe. And they’re going around the neighborhood punching Jews,” Behrman said.

Activist the Rev. Al Sharpton wrote last month of an incident in which a 78-year-old Jewish woman was walking down the street in Brooklyn and was punched in the face.

“These kids are targeting innocent people, and in many cases specifically targeting Jewish folks,” Sharpton wrote. “We would not be silent if it were the other way around, and we will not be silent now. This behavior is racist, period. And we will not tolerate it.”

New York police charged suspect Marajh Amrit with a hate crime in the alleged attack of a white Jewish man as part of a “knockout” game.

According to Texas authorities, Barrett allegedly hit his elderly victim so hard,he immediately tumbled to the ground. Barrett then laughed and said “knockout,” as he ran to his vehicle and fled, according to the allegations.

The elderly black man had two jaw fractures and was hospitalized for several days.

“It is unimaginable in this day and age that one could be drawn to violently attack another based on the color of their skin,” FBI Special Agent Stephen Morris said in a statement.

The attack occurred Nov. 24; the criminal complaint was filed under seal Tuesday and unsealed Thursday, when Barrett was arrested, television station KHOU reported.

Barrett made several videos, one in which he identifies himself and another in which he makes a racial slur and says blacks “haven’t fully experienced the blessing of evolution,” The Washington Times reported.

Barrett allegedly had been working up to playing the knockout game for approximately a week.

If convicted, he faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Liberty Institute Threatens To Sue VA Over Christmas Card Ban.


Veterans in hospitals around the country will be denied holiday greetings from well-wishers because of a stance the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs took three days before Christmas, says the Liberty Institute.

The institute promptly wrote a letter to the VA blasting it for its ban on cards that say “Merry Christmas” or anything religious.

In the letter, general counsel Jeff Mateer said the Texas teacher whose students wanted to cheer up wounded former military men and women in their town should be allowed to carry out her project – and Mateer gave the VA a deadline of Friday to avoid a lawsuit.

“The messages on the cards clearly are the private speech of Mrs. Chapman and her students,” Mateer wrote, referring to Susan Chapman, of Grace Academy of North Texas.

On Sunday, Chapman tried to deliver the cards and reportedly was stopped at the door.

“It is so sad that the VA is sending a message to our children that after all the veterans have done to fight for freedom across the world, the children have no freedom to say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to these honorable men and women,” Chapman said.

Hiram Sasser, the institute’s litigation director, said that “the VA is once again engaging in unlawful religious discrimination. It is shameful that the VA continues to censor religious speech in Christmas cards when the VA knows it is against the law to do so.”

The institute previously sued the VA for forbidding prayer at government funerals and cemeteries. The lawsuit settled, with a federal judge ordering the agency “not to ban religious speech or words, such as ‘God’ and ‘Jesus,’ in condolence cards.” That was in 2011.
