>Eric Holder Has ATF Exporting Guns To Mexican Gangs

Why is the ATF supporting Mexican drug gangs?

We reported that the ATF (Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) has been caught
red-handed actively aiding criminals in the illegal
export of firearms (including 50 caliber rifles!)
from the US to Mexican drug gangs.

At least one of these ATF-faciliated weapons turns
out to have been used to murder a US border patrol
agent
.

Gun store owners warned the ATF about what was going
on.

They were ignored.

ATF agents on the ground warned their superiors.

They were told to “shut up” and follow orders
and that the orders came from the top, straight
from Bushbama’s Department of Justice.

So what exactly did these government criminals have
in mind when they enabled the flow of US weapons to
Mexico?

Well, if you’ve been listening to Osama Bushbama and his
fellow anti-2nd ammendment nuts over the last few years,
the’ve been singing the song that: “90% of the guns
that criminals in Mexico have come from the US.”

There’s just one problem with that story: It happens to
be a straight up lie.

But it looks like Bushbama & Company have beeen doing their
best behind the scenes to make it so by ordering ATF agents
in the field (via the Department of Justice) to stand down
and let illegal weapons exports flow unimpeded to
Mexico. 

Here’s the all-important back story that no one is
connecting to this scandal. (From our friends at 2nd
Amendment TV)

Addiction: There was a time when the LDS community thought of it as a “Word of Wisdom” problem.  Now we know that many of those things we dismiss as “bad habits” are addictions and controlling us more than we know.

>Are Cocoa And Alcohol Good For Man?

>

According to recent estimates, nearly 1-in-3 American adults has high blood pressure. But for the Kuna Indians living on a group of islands off the Caribbean coast of Panama, hypertension doesn’t even exist. In fact, after age 60, the average blood pressure for Kuna Indian islanders is a perfect 110/70.

So what makes these folks practically ‘immune’ to hypertension — and lets them enjoy much lower death rates from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancer?

Harvard researchers were stunned to discover it’s because they drink about 5 cups of cocoa each day. That’s right, cocoa!

1. Alcohol Cuts Rheumatoid Arthritis Risk by Half

People who drink alcohol are less prone to the sometimes crippling disease called rheumatoid arthritis compared with non-drinkers, according to a Scandinavian study published on Wednesday.

People who had moderate alcohol consumption were 40 and 45 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis compared with people who did not drink or drank only occasionally, it found.

Among those who had a high consumption, the risk was reduced by 50 and 55 percent respectively.

Most surprising was that the biggest benefits were seen among smokers with a genetic profile known to make them vulnerable to the disease.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects between 0.5 and one percent of people, according to figures for the industrialised world.

It happens when the immune system attacks the joints, causing inflammation and damage to the cartilage and bone.

A mixture of environmental factors, especially smoking, and genetic heritage are the deemed causes of the disease.

The authors, led by Henrik Kaellberg of the Institute of Environmental Medicine at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, note previous research that suggests alcohol interferes with inflammatory processes that trigger heart disease.

High consumption of alcohol, while apparently protective for rheumatoid arthritis, is itself linked with many other health problems.

The paper appears in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases, a specialist journal published by the British Medical Association (BMA).
