New Social Network Project Aims to Make Facebook Obsolete

(NaturalNews) As questions continue to surface about Facebook's alleged role in aiding illegal government surveillance programs that track and monitor citizens, people are growing restless for a viable social media alternative that respects both personal privacy and the rule of law. And we just might get that from "Miramir," the "Social Network for Change" project testing the waters through a new Kickstarter campaign.

Max Sidorov, the mind behind the project, wants to develop a social networking experience that allows users to interact, create, develop and share information without the threat of privacy invasion and government intrusion. The Miramir project aims to integrate the current leading social media platforms into a unified, secure and completely private system that is sure to become an authoritarian government's worst nightmare.

Unlike Facebook, Miramir users' information is never sold, shared, or otherwise given away to third parties, including corrupt government agencies like the NSA. Miramir users also have the option to completely delete their profiles at any time – not just "deactivate" like with Facebook, which continues to store users' information indefinitely.

Miramir also seeks to spread news articles and other information via its network that are otherwise blocked or censored by the big guys like Google and Facebook. Uncensored news is what free-thinking individuals want, but you won't find much of it on Facebook, which holds a tight leash on information that might threaten the establishment or control grid apparatus.

"This is an invitation to all amazers and creators, mavericks and dreamers, the kindness doers and changemakers, all the good people of our magnificent earth to take part in a global movement for change and freedom," explains the Miramir Kickstarter page.

Use Bitcoin? Miramir supports full cryptocurrency integration

Fiat currency cronyism is driving many people to divert to so-called "cryptocurrencies" like Bitcoin, which are more difficult government authorities to track and are completely independent of usurious central banks and their fractional-reserve lending scams, as well as other similar Ponzi schemes. And Miramir is fully onboard with this emerging transition, with full cryptocurrency integration as one of its bragging rights.

Miramir users can also send messages to one another that "self-destruct," meaning they can be erased – permanently. Social media users shouldn't have to worry that their private conversations are being stored at the massive NSA spying facility in Utah, or on other government servers strategically placed throughout the world.

Content on Miramir is easily managed, much like the current Facebook format, except that users can post and share articles and information anonymously if they choose. Users are also encouraged to form subgroups based on subjects and topics of mutual interest to better organize the flow of information throughout the site.

This revolutionary social media platform "of the people, by the people and for the people" is currently in its beta launch. But it's developers need your help to bring it to an official launch. We encourage you to check out the Kickstarter page and see for yourself how Miramir stands to make Facebook obsolete while giving the power of thought and information back to the people rather than evil corporations.

"What started with an idea for freedom, for privacy, for peace, is now a global movement," say Miramir's developers. "After two years of development and testing, our beta is ready. Now we need your help to launch Miramir and make it even more amazing for you."

"If you want to live in a world filled with good, with love, and with kindness. A world of peace, compassion, and unity. Then join us in launching the most powerful alternative social network and portal in the world. It's a huge project that is going to change the course of free flowing information, and we want you to be a part of it."

CDC Scientists Held Meeting to Destroy Autism-Vaccine Documents

The results of a 2004 study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) discovered a significant link between the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps and rubella) and autism in African American boys vaccinated under or around the age 36 months; however, if it weren't for one whistleblower, you would not have been privy to any of this, because the evidence was deliberately covered up.

Dr. William Thompson, currently a senior scientist at the CDC, recently made a shocking admission that he and his colleagues specifically arranged a meeting to destroy important documents related to the study in an attempt to withhold information from the public regarding a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

As first reported by Sharyl Attkisson, a former CBS News journalist turned independent investigative reporter, Dr. Thompson and the study co-authors "scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study.

"The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room, and reviewed and went through all the hardcopy documents that we had thought we should discard, and put them into a huge garbage can."

"The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism." – CDC Senior Science Dr. William Thompson

However, aware that destroying documents in this manner was both illegal and unethical, Dr. Thompson kept hard copies of all the documents that had been disposed of, as well as maintained all associated computer files.

After securing a whistleblower attorney, Dr. Thompson came forward with his admission, providing relevant documents in August 2014 to the office of Rep. Bill Posey (R-Florida), who presented details of the cover-up on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Posey, who maintains that he is "pro-vaccine," read the following quote by Dr. Thompson on the House floor:

My primary job duties while working in the immunization safety branch from 2000 to 2006, were to later co-lead three major vaccine safety studies. The MADDSP, MMR autism cases control study was being carried out in response to the Wakefield-Lancet study that suggested an association between the MMR vaccine and an autism-like health outcome.

There were several major concerns among scientists and consumer advocates outside the CDC in the fall of 2000, regarding the execution of the Verstraeten Study. One of the important goals that was determined up front, in the spring of 2001, before any of these studies started, was to have all three protocols vetted outside the CDC prior to the start of the analyses so consumer advocates could not claim that we were presenting analyses that suited our own goals and biases.

We hypothesized that if we found statistically significant effects at either 18 or 36 month thresholds, we would conclude that vaccinating children early with MMR vaccine could lead to autism-like characteristics or features. We all met and finalized the study protocol and analysis plan. The goal was to not deviate from the analysis plan to avoid the debacle that occurred with the Verstraeten thimerosal study published in Pediatrics in 2003.

At the Sept 5th meeting we discussed in detail how to code race for both the sample and the birth certificate sample. At the bottom of table 7, it also shows that for the non-birth certificate sample, the adjusted race effect statistical significance was huge.

All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September 2002, not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting, we decided to exclude reporting any race effects.

The co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study.

The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room, and reviewed and went through all the hardcopy documents that we had thought we should discard, and put them into a huge garbage can.

However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DOJ requests, I kept hardcopies of all documents in my office, and I retain all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.

The CDC and Dr. Thompson's co-author Dr. Frank DeStefano, CDC Director of Immunization Safety, continue to defend the study as originally published.

A July 29 Tweet by Attkisson states:
So far, no hearings scheduled and no known inquiry of the alleged scientific misconduct.

STATINS RED ALERT: Widely prescribed drugs act as cellular poisons...

The statin drugs prescribed to over 100 million people around the world have now been exposed as cellular poisons that accelerate aging and promote muscle fatigue, diabetes, memory loss and more.

Scientists at Tulane University in New Orleans found that statin drugs -- which generate tens of billions of dollars a year for pharmaceutical companies -- "deactivate" the stem cells responsible for cellular repair throughout the body. While statin drugs have been aggressively pushed by for-profit drug companies as "miracle" medicines, in truth they can lead to disastrous (even fatal) side effects in many patients.

As the UK Express writes, such side effects include "memory loss, muscle pain, diabetes, cataracts, liver dysfunction, diabetes, fatigue and memory loss."

"Statins make regular users become older faster," reports the Express, "leaving them open to long-term mental and physical decline..." The Express adds:

Scientists have found the heart disease drug badly affects our stem cells, the internal medical system which repairs damage to our bodies and protects us from muscle and joint pain as well as memory loss. ... Professor Reza Izadpanah, a stem cell biologist and lead author of the research published in the American Journal of Physiology, said: "Our study shows statins may speed up the aging process."

Statin drug side effects documented to include memory loss, muscle fatigue, cataracts and diabetes

The study, published in the American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology is entitled "The Impact of Statins on Biological Characteristics of Stem Cells Provides a Novel Explanation for Their Pleotropic Beneficial and Adverse Clinical Effects."

The study abstract states that statin drug "side effects include memory loss, myopathy, cataract formation, and increased risk of diabetes." It also warns that "Statins also impaired the expression of DNA repair genes including XRCC4, XRCC6, and Apex1."

Doctors and drug companies have conspired for years to downplay the side effects of statin drugs, promoting the medications as "miracle" drugs that everyone should be taking. Some doctors even suggested statins should be dripped into the water supply like fluoride.

When patients experienced the devastating side effects of statin drugs -- memory loss, diabetes, muscle fatigue, etc. -- doctors simply put them on yet more medications for those symptoms. Statin drugs, in effect, became "gateway drugs" that led to expanding medication prescriptions for yet more high-profit drugs.

Heart industry doctors bribed to lower the limits of "high" cholesterol to push more statin drugs

To expand the scam, the medical system conspired to redefine "high cholesterol" to lower numbers, instantly thrusting tens of millions of people into a state that demanded "treatment" with high-profit medications. These decision panels of the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology were stacked with panelists who were bribed by pharmaceutical companies to redefine high cholesterol in a way that generated the most profits. As Natural News wrote in 2013:

Doctors claim the new guidelines will limit how many people with low heart risks are put on statins simply because of a cholesterol number. However, under the new advice, one-third of U.S. adults would meet the threshold to consider taking a statin, more than twice the 15 percent of adults who are recommended statins under current guidelines.

The justification for the panel having half its members with ties to Big Pharma: Ties between heart doctors and Big Pharma are so extensive that it is almost impossible to find a large group of doctors who have no industry ties.


For many years, Natural News has taught readers that statin drugs can cause nerve damage and other devastating health effects. But the medical establishment, as usual, ignored these side effects and kept pushing more statins for profit, pretending no one was being harmed.

Just like with the vaccine industry, the statin drug industry is far more concerned with pocketing huge profits than protecting lives. Now, thanks to researchers at Tulane University, the science of what causes statin drugs to be so dangerous to human health is better understood.
