But while you’re here, if you’re interested, we put some health benefits of apples and cinnamon below. It’s some very educational information if you have the time we do suggest having a read below: Apples are great for many reasons, fibre found in apples can help beat diarrhea and constipation . Fibre can either pull water out of your colon to keep things moving along when you’re backed up, or absorb excess water from your stool to slow your bowels down. Apples are also one of the best ways to detox your liver! Red apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin. Recent studies have found that quercetin can help boost and fortify your immune system, especially when you’re stressed out.
And what about Cinnamon? Cinnamon has been consumed since 2000 BC in Ancient Egypt, where it was very highly prized (almost considered to be a panacea). In medieval times doctors used cinnamon to treat conditions such as coughing, arthritis and sore throats. But also, modern research indicates that this spice may have some very beneficial properties.
Health benefits of cinnamon:
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Cinnamon is used to help treat muscle spasms, vomiting, diarrhea, infections, the common cold, loss of appetite, and erectile dysfunction (ED).
Cinnamon may lower blood sugar in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, according to Diabetes UK.1 However high quality research supporting the claim remains scarce.
Fungal infections – according to the National Institutes of Health2, cinnamaldehyde – a chemical found in Cassia cinnamon – can help fight against bacterial and fungal infections.
Diabetes – cinnamon may help improve glucose and lipids levels3 in patients with type 2 diabetes, according to a study published in Diabetics Care.
The study authors concluded that consuming up to 6 grams of cinnamon per day “reduces serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes.” and that “the inclusion of cinnamon in the diet of people with type 2 diabetes will reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.”
In addition, a certain cinnamon extract can reduce fasting blood sugar levels in patients, researchers reported in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation.
Alzheimer’s disease – Tel Aviv University researchers discovered that cinnamon may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. According to Prof. Michael Ovadia, of the Department of Zoology at Tel Aviv University, an extract found in cinnamon bark, called CEppt, contains properties that can inhibit the development of the disease.
HIV – a study of Indian medicinal plants revealed that cinnamon may potentially be effective against HIV4. According to the study authors, “the most effective extracts against HIV-1 and HIV-2 are respectively Cinnamomum cassia (bark) and Cardiospermum helicacabum (shoot + fruit).”
Multiple Sclerosis – cinnamon may help stop the destructive process of multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a neurological scientist at Rush University Medical Center. Cinnamon could help eliminate the need to take some expensive and unpleasant drugs.
Lower the negative effects of high fat meals – Penn State researchers revealed that diets rich in cinnamon can help reduce the body’s negative responses to eating high-fat meals.

I would guess that many people have heard of the entity known as St. Germaine. This brief discussion contains a bit of history of him, how he got to the position of an Ascended Master, and what his designs and goals were and are in that capacity. In the Christian scriptures there are many references made to ‘angels’ who have sent from God with messages or even in some instances to directly intervene in human events. These angels, as we call them, would be classified as inter-dimensional as they come and go many times unseen by mortals. In this respect we might refer to St. Germaine as an ‘angel’ as he comes and goes many times undetected by mortal men. In this short presentation reference is also made to the ‘spirit’ of St. Germaine or the lasting influence that he leaves. This is much in line with the influence that Jesus left with us and other light workers such as Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, and a host of others. We still feel the influence of some of these workers after years and years. And as St. Germaine pops in and out we get that same effect. So, enjoy this short discussion. Remember: these are my own opinions, but I hope whether you agree or disagree with my analysis that you will get a little more knowledge that before you viewed.Thanks, Winston

When I began doing videos every day, I promised myself and my audience that I would speak from my heart and be as authentic as I am able to be. I’ve kept that promise. Some people like that; others do not. For those who are used to media personnel being “professional” in their reporting, my style is a real shocker. I’ve done angry videos; videos when I admitted having alcoholic drinks first; videos with no shirt on; videos where I openly revealed my weaknesses, expressed my doubts and fears, and shared personal details that make me blush; and videos where I’ve admitted I was wrong. I hope that I will keep finding the courage to stick to this pattern, because I believe it is the mark of integrity whether talking about spiritual or political things, personal or public matters. Yes, I have pissed a lot of people off; that’s the blow-back from authentic communication.

Based on a 2009 article that appeared in the Washington Post and a March 2013 report by CNN, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) – who authored a resolution calling for the Sergeant at Arms to arrest Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress – should perhaps point to a much more significant crime in response to any concerns that Lerner could become a sympathetic figure if she were arrested. That crime involves Lerner’s alleged illegal backdating of a tax exempt approval letter for an organization whose founder does business with a State Sponsor of Terrorism, business the Post says is illegal.
Here is what the Washington Post’s Dan Eggen wrote nearly five years ago:
U.S. legal requirements… mandate disclosure of work for foreign governments and whichprohibit doing business with Sudan under sanctions first imposed in the 1990s.
Here is what CNN reported in 2013:
…Sudan, which has been under strict U.S. government sanctions and a trade embargo for nearly 20 years for supporting terrorism and violating human rights.
As Shoebat.com has demonstrated for over a year now, Malik Obama – the brother of the President of the United States – has been “doing business with Sudan” since at least 2010, a year prior to when Lerner granted him tax exempt status.
Stockman was interviewed by Megyn Kelly about his resolution and one of the counterarguments raised by Kelly was that if the Sergeant at Arms is ordered to arrest Lerner, Republicans risk making Lerner a sympathetic figure. Stockman, whom we believe is well aware of the Malik Obama angle to the scandal (based on his trips to Egypt earlier this year), didn’t seem concerned with Lerner garnering sympathy during his interview:
As to the subject of the 2009 Post article, it was former Reagan National Security Advisor Robert “Bud” McFarlane. Last year, McFarlane’s Watergate apartment was raided by the FBI and in affidavit, agent Graydon Ridd wrote the following, according to CNN:
“I believe these e-mails are evidence that McFarlane was entering into an agreement with the Government of Sudan to lobby the U.S. government officials on behalf of Sudan and to provide it with advice during negotiations with the United States.”
The U.K. Daily Mail quoted Ridd as further stating that emails obtained in the raid provide further evidence that McFarlane and a Sudanese intelligence operative were attempting…
“…to hide McFarlane’s relationship with Sudan by construing the agreement to make it appear that his contractual relationship was with Qatar, when in fact it was not.”
How does all of this involve Lerner?
Simple. The admission by the Washington Post and CNN that dealing with Sudan is illegal for Americans to do, coupled with McFarlane’s alleged attempt to mask said dealings by contracting with Qatar, means that Malik Obama’s dealings with Sudan are much easier to demonstrate as being illegal. Ditto for Lerner being an accessory.
In fact, McFarlane’s alleged attempt at masking the deal could make the case against Lerner and Malik even stronger.
McFarlane’s case appears to have gone cold since Malik’s connections to Sudan were discovered in May of 2013 by Shoebat.com. In fact, he’s writing unrelated Op-eds for the Wall Street Journal and as Shoebat.comreported, even recently attended an event hosted by an organization whose Vice President is a former henchman for the Sudanese government – Abubaker Y. Ahmed Al Shingieti.
The alleged pseudo-deal with Qatar to mask dealings with Sudan netted McFarlane a $1.3 million contract.
The Post article said that McFarlane was “close to the edge of U.S. legal requirements” in his deal with Qatar potentially a cover for an actual deal with Sudan. If McFarlane is “close to the edge”, Malik Obama and Lois Lerner are over the edge. Malik for dealing with Sudan and Lerner for not only illegally letting him do it but by violating a separate law in the process.
According to the CNN report, one of the items on McFarlane’s agenda was to get Sudan off the State Sponsors of Terrorism list, quite potentially on behalf of the Obama administration, which has been seeking the same thing as reported by Shoebat.com.
In his interview with Kelly – who played the role of devil’s advocate – Stockman responded to a question about allowing the process involving the Justice Department to work by rightly pointing out that Attorney General Eric Holder has been found in contempt of Congress too. In fact, the U.S. Attorney responsible for prosecuting Holder is actually Holder’s subordinate and refused to do his job.
The notion that Lerner would be a sympathetic figure is on par with Republicans being afraid of their own shadow. Here is a woman who has for years represented a body – the IRS – that targets and bullies Americans with great regularity.
Moreover, no politician of consequence is going for the jugular in this scandal.
Last March, before Lerner was found in contempt of Congress, Shoebat.com called for House Speaker John Boehner to arrest Lerner if she were to be found in contempt.
In April, she was.Source: http://shoebat.com/2014/07/12/lois-lerner-caught-washington-post-cnn-accessory-terror-funding/
Most people have never heard of Jaime Caruana even though he is the head of an immensely powerful organization. He has been serving as the General Manager of the Bank for International Settlements since 2009, and he will continue in that role until 2017. The Bank for International Settlements is a rather boring name, and very few people realize that it is at the very core of our centrally-planned global financial system. So when Jaime Caruana speaks, people should listen. And the fact that he recently warned that the global financial system is currently “more fragile” in many ways than it was just prior to the collapse of Lehman Brothers should set off all sorts of alarm bells. Speaking of the financial markets, Caruana ominously declared that “it is hard to avoid the sense of a puzzling disconnect between the markets’ buoyancy and underlying economic developments globally” and he noted that “markets can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent”. In other words, he is saying what I have been saying for so long. The behavior of the financial markets has become completely divorced from economic reality, and at some point there is going to be a massive correction.
So why would the head of ‘the central bank of the world’ choose this moment to issue such a chilling warning?
Does he know something that the rest of us do not?
According to a recent article in the Telegraph by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Caruana is extremely concerned about rising debt levels and the current level of euphoria in the financial markets…
The world economy is just as vulnerable to a financial crisis as it was in 2007, with the added danger that debt ratios are now far higher and emerging markets have been drawn into the fire as well, the Bank for International Settlements has warned. Jaime Caruana, head of the Swiss-based financial watchdog, said investors were ignoring the risk of monetary tightening in their voracious hunt for yield. “Markets seem to be considering only a very narrow spectrum of potential outcomes. They have become convinced that monetary conditions will remain easy for a very long time, and may be taking more assurance than central banks wish to give,” he told The Telegraph. Mr Caruana said the international system is in many ways more fragilethan it was in the build-up to the Lehman crisis. Debt ratios in the developed economies have risen by 20 percentage points to 275pc of GDP since then.
And you know what?
Caruana is certainly correct to be warning us about these things.
As I have written about previously, the total amount of government debt in the world has grown by about 40 percent since the last recession, and the “too big to fail banks” have collectively gotten 37 percent larger since that time.
The U.S. national debt has grown from about 10 trillion dollars to more than 17.5 trillion dollars, and even the Bank for International Settlements admits that the globalderivatives bubble has grown to at least 710 trillion dollars.
The massive financial imbalances that we were facing during the last crisis have not been fixed. Instead, they have gotten much, much worse.
But should we trust the Bank for International Settlements?
Of course not.
This is a very secretive organization that very few people know about but that possesses absolutely enormous power. The following is a brief overview of the Bank for International Settlements from one of my previous articles entitled “Who Controls The Money? An Unelected, Unaccountable Central Bank Of The World Secretly Does“…
An immensely powerful international organization that most people have never even heard of secretly controls the money supply of the entire globe. It is called the Bank for International Settlements, and it is the central bank of central banks. It is located in Basel, Switzerland, but it also has branches in Hong Kong and Mexico City. It is essentially an unelected, unaccountable central bank of the world that has complete immunity from taxation and from national laws. Even Wikipedia admits that “it is not accountable to any single national government.” The Bank for International Settlements was used to launder money for the Nazis during World War II, but these days the main purpose of the BIS is to guide and direct the centrally-planned global financial system. Today, 58 global central banks belong to the BIS, and it has far more power over how the U.S. economy (or any other economy for that matter) will perform over the course of the next year than any politician does. Every two months, the central bankers of the world gather in Basel for another “Global Economy Meeting”. During those meetings, decisions are made which affect every man, woman and child on the planet, and yet none of us have any say in what goes on. The Bank for International Settlements is an organization that was founded by the global elite and it operates for the benefit of the global elite, and it is intended to be one of the key cornerstones of the emerging one world economic system.
The role that the Bank for International Settlements is playing today was envisioned by the global elite long ago. In another previous article, I quoted from a book that Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley wrote in 1975 entitled “Tragedy & Hope” in which he discussed how the BIS was to one day become “the apex” of the globalfinancial system…
[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.
And it is interesting to note that Professor Quigley was not against the system that the elite were setting up. He was just an academic that was trying to accurately convey what he had learned about how the global system works.
Sadly, the system that Quigley wrote about all the way back in 1975 has fully blossomed today.
Every two months, the central bankers of the world travel to Switzerland for “Global Economy Meetings” in Basel. Most people have never heard of them, but these Global Economy Meetings were actually discussed in the Wall Street Journal…
Every two months, more than a dozen bankers meet here on Sunday evenings to talk and dine on the 18th floor of a cylindrical building looking out on the Rhine. The dinner discussions on money and economics are more than academic. At the table are the chiefs of the world’s biggest central banks, representing countries that annually produce more than $51 trillion of gross domestic product, three-quarters of the world’s economic output.
So how do you feel about the fact that the central bankers of the world regularly gather to plot their next moves for the global economy?
Should an unelected group of central bankers that has no accountability to any national government really have so much power?
