    NaturalNews: Nestle’ CEO seeks to control the world’s water supply

    April 22, 2013 by: Lance Devon

    (NaturalNews) Gun control may be a hot topic, but what about water control? Recent comments from Nestle CEO Peter Brabeck imply that the world’s water will soon come under the control of corporations like his. Brabeck makes the astonishing claim that water is not a human right, but should be managed by business people and governing bodies. He wants water controlled, privatized, and delegated in a way that sustains the planet. View the astonishing interview here:

    Water control hitting the United States
    All of this means that Brabeck’s future plans include monitoring and controlling the amount of water people use. One day, cities and towns may be forced by international law to limit each household to a set amount of water. People may have to obtain permits to dig wells or pay fines for collecting rainwater. Laws like these are already in motion in the United States. Learn more here: http://www.naturalnews.com/029286_rainwater_collection_water.html

    And Nestle’ has been very busy

    Nestle Sustainability Report way back 2000-2001. What’s been done over the years with this I don’t know.



    I remember reading something else recently Nestle’ is involved with that didn’t settle well. Oh well.
    Get ready to shave your heads to save water.

      The other alarming issue I can’t remember about Nestle’ is also this just out recall of Nestle’ food.

      No telling what country Nestle’s spinach was grown to make their frozen dinners. Pretty lame that Consumer Affairs doesn’t report where the heck. If it’s manufactured in California it could be from Mexico or South America.

      “Did you know…

      Nestlé has 468 factories in 86 countries around the world and around 330 000 employees. Nestlé is the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company with an unmatched portfolio of more than 2,000 global and local brands.”

      Still couldn’t find out where their bottle Pure Life water comes from, but what is good for the goose is good for the gander, and there should be limit to how much water Nestle’ gets.

    The news of talentless NBA ‘awful-star’ (1.1 points a game) Jason Collins coming out of the closet to admit he enjoys anal sex with other men, has many benefits for liberalism:

    1. It’s a needed distraction for Benghazi, Fast & Furious gun-running debacle, and the terrible economy.
    2. It gives a wink and a shout-out to liberal voters, to pretend something like this is actually progress.
    3. It deliberately sets a trap for heretics to be exposed from the shadows, shouted down and berated.

    Victim 1: Asante Samuel very gently and innocently states his opinion, NFL.com reporter states HIS opinion of Samuel’s opinion which is somehow Ok. http://tinyurl.com/c79u5n9

    Victim 2: ESPN abuses and shouts down NBA reporter Chris Broussard who used his Constitutional right to also come out as a Christian and moralist. http://tinyurl.com/c6bayov

    Victim 3: Bryan Fischer boldly states his opinion, Huffington Post MUST dutifully respond instead of just shrugging it off as a personal opinion everyone has a right to. http://tinyurl.com/ct2ugeo

    Victim 4: Conservative Christian church in Wisconsin dis-inviting recent LOUD-MOUTH and ex-Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler. http://tinyurl.com/bw55rfx
    (Strange how quiet Butler was when teammate Reggie White came out against homosexuality)

    Victim 5/6: Past woodshed victims: Former NBA star Tim Hardaway in 2007 said he ‘hates gay people’ and Chris Culliver of the San Francisco 49er last year had to do a Mea Culpa after his supposed anti-gay comments January 30, 2013.

    Every single time the issue of homosexuality comes up, I don’t know why Conservatives do use it to discuss in gory detail the nature of what the liberal support? Why not talk about the obvious link, gay men + anal sex = disease. Why not talk about the gay men who abused boys in the Catholic church, or Jerry Sandusky’s homosexual conviction? Why not challenge the idea that behavior is a CHOICE humans make, and INSTINCT is what the animal world runs on?

    My gosh, the opportunities to stick it in these people’s face and embarrass them into shutting up is monumental! Yet, there is no rebuttal, because it’s all political perception in the minds of the Washington crowd, “Gee, we better not say anything if we want the gay people to vote for us (which they absolutely won’t) so we better look inclusive and not bigoted (which the media will call you anyway).”

    Cook County Sheriff Wants Own Conceal-Carry Law
    CHICAGO (AP) – Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart is proposing a county concealed-carry ordinance if lawmakers in Springfield can’t come up with a statewide law.
    A federal court has ruled Illinois’ ban on the public possession of firearms is unconstitutional and gave the state until June 9 to come up with a concealed-carry law.. But Dart worries that if lawmakers don’t come up with anything by then, it will be legal for anyone with a firearm owners’ identification card to carry a gun anywhere. So he wants a countywide ordinance ready to go just in case.
    His ordinance would give him the authority to approve and reject licenses to carry concealed firearms in the county and applicants would have to pay $300 fee for a license.

    Washington Post
    Tuesday, June 29, 2010
    The Second Amendment provides Americans a fundamental right to bear arms that cannot be violated by state and local governments, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a long-sought victory for gun rights advocates.
    “It is clear that the Framers . . . counted the right to keep and bear arms among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty.”
    The decision extended the court’s 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller that “the Second Amendment protects a personal right to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes, most notably for self-defense within the home.” That decision applied only to federal laws and federal enclaves such as Washington; it was the first time the court had said there was an individual right to gun ownership rather than one related to military service.
    Monday’s decision might be more symbolic than substantive, at least initially. No cities have laws as restrictive as the handgun bans in the District and in Monday’s case from Chicago and its suburb of Oak Park. Although the court’s decision did not specifically strike down those laws, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley said it will make the city’s 28-year-old law “unenforceable.”
    Justice Stephen G. Breyer objected to the majority decision and read his dissent from the bench. He disagreed with the majority that it is a fundamental right, saying the court was restricting state and local efforts from designing gun-control laws that both fit their particular circumstances and save lives.
    “In a nation whose constitution foresees democratic decision-making, is it so fundamental a matter as to require taking that power from the people?” Breyer wrote. “What is it here that the people did not know? What is it that a judge knows better?”
    Although it might seem unsurprising to most that the Bill of Rights applies to states and cities, it was conceived as a restriction on the federal government. In the past century, the court has said most amendments also apply to state and local governments.

    wwwOur Documents /gov

    ” During the debates on the adoption of the Constitution, its opponents repeatedly charged that the Constitution as drafted would open the way to tyranny by the central government. Fresh in their minds was the memory of the British violation of civil rights before and during the Revolution. They demanded a “bill of rights” that would spell out the immunities of individual citizens. Several state conventions in their formal ratification of the Constitution asked for such amendments; others ratified the Constitution with the understanding that the amendments would be offered. ”

    The State Of Chicago” doesn’t need any stinking Constitution”

    Recalls of Colorado anti-Second Amendment senators heat up

    Colorado Springs, May 5, 2013

    Recalls in the southern Colorado cities of Colorado Springs and Pueblo heat up as the Democrat Party machine strikes back at recall efforts against senators John Morse (Colorado Springs) and Angela Giron (Pueblo).

    Petition-signing efforts in both districts are going well and as the 60-day deadlines near, both seem likely to get the required number of signatures.

    Morse forms a committee

    John Morse, who had said publically that he couldn’t be recalled, now has an issue committee organizing on his behalf. The committee formally registered on March 21st—just one day after the infamous anti-gun bills were signed into law. This strongly suggests that Sen. Morse knew, as he should have known, that the bills he rushed through the senate were wildly unpopular.

    The heck you say! You mean these statists would vote for something their constituents didn’t want?

    The committee is called “A Whole Lot of People for John Morse,”…How many is A Whole Lot of People? Six…the committee has raised $1,250 dollars from six people, the bulk of it ($750) from two lawyers.

    In Pueblo, efforts to recall Sen. Angela Giron continue…Citizens feel that Sen. Giron has betrayed the trust of her constituents. This weekend they again converged on the Pueblo West Wal-Mart parking lot to sign petitions to recall her. According to organizers, about 60% of their signatures are from Democrats.

    There hasn’t been much discussion of the fallout from Colorado’s new anti-gun legislation. I though it was worth mention that there is a political price being paid by these statists. Even some democrats think they have gone too far. That’s quite a strong statement, coming from the party of Pelosi, Reid, nerobama, et al. The article is a decent-length read and covers a few more issues, such as the Voter Fraud Bill that the same democrats are trying to shove through the state legislature. The Voter Fraud Bill would allow same-day registration and voting without any ID (which would be convenient if you had a bus load of people and drove them from polling place to polling place, allowing them to vote at each stop).
