Washington’s SFABs Will Teach the Art of War to Foreign Armies

by Valery Kulikov, New Eastern Outlook:

In spite of its irresistible urge to address the challenges it created by a handful of armed interventions in various states of the world that Washington has these days, we’re witnessing its ever decreasing commitment to direct warfare, as it prefers to lead regional forces from behind. The experience accumulated in this sort of leadership in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Middle East and Africa is now going to be applied on a global scale by the US.

Under these circumstances, we’re noticing an ever growing demand for “military instructors” that are sent to all sorts of states as an instrumental part of the new US military doctrine. In fact, a new industry is being created as entire drill brigades were formed by 2016 as the US 10th Mountain Division prepared Iraqi Army units for an assault on Mosul.

For this reason, last summer the Pentagon would announce its plan to create six Security Force Assistance Brigades (SFAB) which will be employed as “military advisers and instructors” across the world to support the power of pro-US regimes across the world. This process is being carefully supervised by the 39th Chief of Staff for the US Army, General Mark Milley.

The first brigade of such instructors that is known as 1SFAB or the “Legion” started its formation in the spring of 2017 on the basis of Fort Benning (Georgia) under the supervision of Col. Scott Jackson. Of its 529 troopers, 360 are officers. Servicemen of the brigade receive a bonus of five thousand dollars a year in addition to their respective salaries. The subdivision is formed on a voluntary basis. As early as November 30, the 1SFAB “Legion” brigade should be operational and prepared to carry out its missions abroad, while the funds have already been allocated on the creation of the second similar brigade.

All six such SFAB, according to the Pentagon, are expected to be fully operational by 2022. It is planned that each regional command of the USA (for example, AFRICOM, EUCOM, etc.) will receive a SFAB brigade under its command. Should the situation in any of US satellite states become aggravated, the Pentagon expects that local forces trained by SFABs will be dispatched to “resolve the situation” on their own. Should there be any more assistance needed from Washington, a full-fledged brigade of four thousand servicemen will be formed on the basis of one of such SFABs, consisting of 500 servicemen in the shortest possible time.

The Pentagon’s SFAB brigade program provides training for US military personnel in foreign languages, it’s expected that more that 200 servicemen will undergo intensive foreign languages courses for four months, while they will be allowed to get acquainted with foreign weapons samples. Also, SFAB soldiers will be informed of the importance of understanding local customs, culture, traditions, political nuances. The officers will also be instructed to establish personal contacts with local political and military figures.

The training of new military advisers will take place with the involvement of the same US special forces that are already operating in various regions. This will be an additional burden for them. Therefore, the decision of the Pentagon on the new brigades SFAB caused a lot of controversy in the military environment, especially among representatives of the special forces, as many did not understand what functions will be assigned to this new type of units. Indeed, until recently, it was the US special forces that would spend a lot of their time instructing and training local security agencies, learning the situation on the ground, while establishing informal contacts with local populations. It would be understatement to say that those units were simply engaged in routine military operations. Many fear that the new SFAB will either duplicate certain functions of special forces, or will simply replace them.

Uranium One: Previously Undiscovered FOIA Documents Could Be Game Changer in Investigation

by Pamela Geller, Freedom Outpost:

Once again, the media’s outright ignoring the left’s scandals — while all eyes are turned on the Republicans, digging under whatever rocks are available to tie President Donald Trump to nonexistent Russia collusion charges.

Now here comes a new report about the uranium story — the widely underreported uranium story — that sheds more dark light on the left.

An Internet researcher may have actually stumbled upon a hidden nugget within the whole Uranium Once-Hillary Clinton scandal that’s been dotting the FBI’s radar for some time now.

And the key?

It’s within a file that came to light via a Freedom of Information Act request.

The blog The Conservative Tree House has more:

Internet researcher Katica (Twitter GOPollAnalyst) may have found the hidden thread that unravels a much bigger story within the Uranium One-Clinton-FBI scandal.

In an otherwise innocuous FBI FOIA FILE Katica located a notice for preservation of documents sent by an FBI special agent to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on August 28th, 2015. What is interesting about the preservation request(s) are the recipients, their attachment to CFIUS (Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States), and the timeline of events surrounding the agent’s notification.

The time-line here is very important as it might change the perception of exactly what the FBI was investigating as it relates to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Therefore a backdrop to understand content and context is important.

Up to now the general perception of the FBI’s involvement surrounding the Clinton emails has been against the backdrop of using a personal email server to conduct business, and the potential for unlawful transmission of classified data.

Additionally, the circumvention of official information technology protocols was the narrative most often discussed. The headlines were “Clinton used bad judgement” etc.

In essence, throughout 2015, 2016, 2017 the arguments, including FBI legal probes, were thought to center around “process“. However, Katica’s discovery re-frames that argument to focus on the subject matter “content” within the emails, and not the process.

Bear with me… The first notification of a Clinton email problem stemmed from the discovery that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her personal email (and server) to conduct official government business. Those initial revelations were discovered around March of 2015. [New York Times, March 2nd]

Sometime around August 3rd, 2015, we discovered the FBI inquiry was actually a “criminal probe“. [USA Today August 4th] – [Washington Post August 3rd] – [New York Post, August 5th, 2015] The media reporting in early August of 2015 showed the FBI investigation was actually a criminal probe. The dates here are important.

The discovery by Katica shows that on August 28th, 2015, an FBI special agent sent a notification to preserve records to: •Nuclear Regulatory Commission; •The U.S. Dept. of Treasury; •Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI James Clapper); •The National Counter Terrorism Center; and the •U.S. Department of Energy (DoE).

Each of these agencies was intricately involved in the 2010 approval of the Uranium One deal. Indeed, each of these specific agencies is involved in the CFIUS approval process for the purchase within the Uranium One deal. Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State at the time.

Five Days later, on September 2nd, 2015, the FBI special agent sent another notification for preservation of records to the same agencies -beginning with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission- and adding: the National Security Agency (NSA – Admiral Mike Rogers) and the United States Secret Service (USSS).

The following day, on September 3rd, 2015, the FBI special agent submitted a supplemental notification for preservation of records to: •The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), •Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and •The Department of Defense.

Taken in their totality those FBI special agent notifications now encompassed every member of the CFIUS group who “signed off” on approval of the Uranium One deal.

It would be intellectually dishonest not to see the very likely attachment of the special agent’s action. That is to say an FBI probe originating as an outcome of information retrieved in parallel to the timing of the “criminal probe” of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email use.

The sequence of events highlights a criminal probe starting [early August 2015], followed by notifications to the “Uranium One” CFIUS participants [late August 2015].

Don’t Be Fooled by Soros’ Great Deception-America and Trump Are In Grave Danger

0

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

George Soros is preparing to unleash holy hell on America. His so-called “Purple Revolution” is designed to produce a civil war and at the same time force Donald Trump from office.

The dreaded November 4th day of infamy has come and gone and we are still alive, we are still here. Today, on November 5th, we all are breathing a collective sigh of relief. The much dreaded Soros-led revolution against our country has come and gone and it has failed miserably. Antifa has become Antifail. The much anticipated nationwide protests, designed to remove Donald Trump from office has failed and failed miserably. The good guys have won and the bad guys have failed. The Independent Media has is rejoicing in America’s good fortune. For example, here are two reports from Breitbart and Infowars where they are proclaiming defeat for America’s 5th column forces.

From Breitbart:

“…the group behind this weekend’s multi-city Antifa rallies, claims to be “organizing millions of people to drive out the fascist Trump / Pence regime.” Actual turnout on the first day of their nationwide rallies was far lower.

The group, founded by Revolutionary Communist Party chairman Bob Avakian, took out a full-page ad in the New York Times to promote the rally, and has enjoyed free press in the national media in the past few days.

Despite the press attention, turnout was low at many of Refuse Fascism’s rallies, which were scheduled to take place in 20 U.S. cities. The exception appears to have been L.A, where local news reported that close to 2,000 protesters gathered.

There were no reports of violent incidents, although a woman accused of deliberately splashing her drink on a Trump supporter was reportedly arrested at the Refuse Fascism march in New York City.”

Infowars filed a report which indicated a similar dismal turnout with all the excitement of watching the paint dry on the wall.

Has Soros Lost the Ability to Launch Violent Protests In Which People Die and Governments Topple?

The question posed in the previous subtitle is ridiculous on its face. The recent deadly riots at Charlottesville stands as a case in point. Then why and how did the George Soros organization, Antifa, fail so badly in bringing people together for the purpose of destabilizing the country in such a manner that Trump would be deposed? The simple answer is that it is all part of the planned deception.

Do not make the mistake of discounting George Soros and his criminal enterprises consisting of social justice warriorsfrom carrying out their deeds of destructio. Don’t make the mistake in assuming that these groups have somehow lost their effectiveness. Soros’s organizations are effective because they employ successful battle plans. Their arsenal of mishief and mayhem consists of a combination of Rules for Radicals and the ancient teachings of Sun Tzu and The Art of War.

November 4th was an abject failure from a strategic point of view based on self-generated violence, violent deaths, raw numbers of participants and the promotion of regime change inside the United States. Before making the mistake of thinking that yesterday’s designed protest were a failure, please consider the following admonitions from Sun Tzu as published in The Art of War. Please note that these teachings form the backbone for teaching military strategy at the military academies. And I have found these historical admonitions to be useful in tracking and predicting Soros strategies which are designed to take down America.

Consider the following quotes from Sun Tzu which have proven applicable to past Soros-led acts of violence.

“Appear at points which the enemy must hasten to defend; march swiftly to places where you are not expected”

“You can be sure of succeeding in your attacks if you only attack places which are undefended.”

“The spot where we intend to fight must not be made known; for then the enemy will have to prepare against a possible attack at several different points.”

“Numerical weakness comes from having to prepare against possible attacks; numerical strength, from compelling our adversary to make these preparations against us.”

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

 

From the abovementioned quotes, I see the strategies behind the Vegas massacre, the “hands up don’t shoot” violence in the St. Louis area and the ISIS attack upon innocent and defenseless persons in Manhattan. These quotes also tell us what is coming next.

Antifa is definitely a force to be reckoned with, just ask the concert goers in Las Vegas. However, I repeatedly warned that November 4th would likely be a dud and as I said, nobody in their right mind would telegraph a terrorist attack.

What Is Coming

The artificially created threat of terrorism has forced America to defend the venues of sporting events and air travel. However, what security protections have been enacted at malls? One gets scanned and potentially frisked when they travel or go to a game. However, one should consider the fact that there are no equivalent security measures in effect at shopping malls or at a schools or at large churches? Now that these facts are out on the table, America, ask yourself, if you were Soros, where would you attack next? Where would your big false flag attacks occur? And if your goal is national destablization, what would you do given these facts?

Why aren’t DHS and the FBI moving to correct these glaring deficiencies? Instead, the defense of these soft targets has been made easier by the implementation of gun-free-zones. The terrorists know that there will be virtually no opposition at these vulnerable venues.

Wait, what? Warmer air temperatures have helped HEAL the ozone layer; hole is the smallest it’s been in 30 years

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

The far-Left has told so many lies and indoctrinated so many young people about the climate and so-called “global warming” for decades now that it is getting harder to hide the truth, thanks in large part to alternative media like us.

For years liberal scientists have claimed that the earth was warming in large part because chemical use and pollutants around the world were thinning the ozone layer, which of course is vital to maintaining life on our planet.

In fact, the damage was so severe that the wider the hole became, the hotter and more unsustainable earth would become.

Yes, well now you can scratch all of that because none of it is true.

According to the most recent research, average warmer temperatures are having a positive effect on the ozone hole — that is, they are helping to close it, a new study has found.

As reported by Science Daily, measurements taken via satellites during 2017 indicate that the hole in the ozone layer that forms over Antarctica each September was the smallest it’s been since 1988.

Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and NASA say that the hole reached its peak diameter September 11 and covered an area some 2.5 times larger than the United States, or about 7.6 million square miles, but then declined throughout the rest of the month and into October.

The site noted:

NOAA ground- and balloon-based measurements also showed the least amount of ozone depletion above the continent during the peak of the ozone depletion cycle since 1988. NOAA and NASA collaborate to monitor the growth and recovery of the ozone hole every year.

“The Antarctic ozone hole was exceptionally weak this year,” said Paul A. Newman, chief scientist for Earth Sciences at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “This is what we would expect to see given the weather conditions in the Antarctic stratosphere.”

Researchers say that the smaller hole was largely due to an unstable — and warmer — Antarctic vortex, which is a stratospheric low-pressure system that rotates clockwise in the atmosphere above the continent.

“The formation and persistence of these clouds are important first steps leading to the chlorine- and bromine-catalyzed reactions that destroy ozone, scientists said. These Antarctic conditions resemble those found in the Arctic, where ozone depletion is much less severe,” Science Daily reported. (Related: Global warming hoax: Earth COOLER now than when Gore won his BS Nobel prize.)

Warmer temps also tempered the size of the ozone hole in 2016, researchers said, when it reached its maximum size of 8.9 million square miles — or some 2 million less square miles than the previous year.

Since 1991, NOAA and NASA scientists say that the average size of the ozone hole has been roughly 10 million square miles.

Of course, the agencies had to temper these findings with the usual warning that the hole is still quite large and it’s because we’re still using too many dangerous chemicals — which is true. But they also said that the smaller holes over the past two years are not a sign of ‘rapid healing,’ meaning that the planet is still at risk of vanishing in one huge fireball someday.

But how can it be that warmer average temperatures are both healing to the planet and harmful?

Declassified Docs Show CIA Poisoned Entire Town with LSD in Massive Mind-Control Experiment

0

By Jay Syrmopoulos, The Free Thought Project:

The CIA intentionally dosed a French village with LSD as part of a top-secret mind control experiment according to documents released under FOIA.

For decades, after a French village was struck by mass insanity and hallucinations in 1951, it was widely believed that a local bakery’s flour had become contaminated by ergot, a poisonous fungus that occurs naturally on rye and causes hallucinations. However, a discovery by an investigative journalist doing research for a book about the incident uncovered damning evidence that the village’s food was intentionally contaminated with LSD as part of a secret CIA mind control experiment.

On August 16, 1951, numerous locals were suddenly stricken with horrifying hallucinations of fire, dragons, and snakes, with dozens being committed to asylums and hundreds left with varying degrees of madness. The incident was known locally as the mystery of Le Pain Maudit (Cursed Bread).

Time magazine wrote at the time: “Among the stricken, delirium rose: patients thrashed wildly on their beds, screaming that red flowers were blossoming from their bodies, that their heads had turned to molten lead.”

A local postman at the time, Leon Armunier, was doing his rounds in the town of Pont-Saint-Esprit when he was suddenly overcome by a feeling of nausea and wild hallucinations.

“It was terrible. I had the sensation of shrinking and shrinking, and the fire and the serpents coiling around my arms,” he told the BBC.

Armunier, now 87, fell off his bike and was taken to the hospital in Avignon.

He recalls being put in a straitjacket and sharing a room with three teenagers who had been chained to their beds to keep them under control.

“Some of my friends tried to get out of the window. They were thrashing wildly… screaming, and the sound of the metal beds and the jumping up and down… the noise was terrible.

“I’d prefer to die rather than go through that again,” Armunier said.

According to H.P. Albarelli Jr., who published a book about the experiment, the incident had nothing to do with ergot contaminated bread, and instead, was part of a top-secret mind control experiment conducted by the CIA.

Albarelli’s findings are based upon a CIA documents he uncovered while investigating the incident entitled:

“Re: Pont-Saint-Esprit and F.Olson Files. SO Span/France Operation file, inclusive Olson. Intel files. Hand carry to Belin – tell him to see to it that these are buried.”

The Telegraph reports:

Mr Albarelli came across CIA documents while investigating the suspicious suicide of Frank Olson, a biochemist working for the SOD who fell from a 13th floor window two years after the Cursed Bread incident. One note transcribes a conversation between a CIA agent and a Sandoz official who mentions the “secret of Pont-Saint-Esprit” and explains that it was not “at all” caused by mould but by diethylamide, the D in LSD.

Further research revealed that F. Olson, according to the BBC, was Frank Olson – a scientist that had spearheaded research into LSD for the CIA, while Belin was a reference to David Belin, who was executive director of the Rockefeller Commission created by the White House in 1975 to investigate abuses carried out worldwide by the CIA.

The Pont-Saint-Esprit and F. Olson Files, mentioned in the document, would show – if they had not been “buried” – that the CIA was experimenting on the townspeople, by dosing them with LSD, according to Albarelli.

The United States Is Melting Down Under Extreme Corruption

0

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research:

I have fond affection for my sense of right and wrong – morally, spiritually and legally.  But it’s becoming increasingly difficult to behave responsibly as a citizen given the thorough corruption which has engulfed nearly the entire population of elected officials and business leaders.  Fraud, corruption, grand-scale theft and remarkable dishonesty is endemic to Wall Street, DC and across corporate America.

Every single elected official at the Federal level, and at most State levels, is a paid servant of  big banks, corporations and wealthy families/individuals.  Obtaining a House or Senate seat is worth $10’s of millions.  Getting into the Oval Office is worth $100’s of millions.  For those you who still harbor disillusions of Obama’s integrity, recall that he campaigned aggressively on a platform in 2008 that promoted “cleaning up Wall Street” as a high priority.  Not only did he not clean anything up, he enabled the same fraudulent business activities that sunk the financial system in 2008 to become even more grand in scale and stealth.  Now he’s greedily pocketing $1 million speaking engagement with the banks he bailed out in 2008 with $800 billion in taxpayer funds.

Anyone who believes their vote matters has their head buried in sand.  Even though he must believe his vote still matters, James Kunstler has written must-read commentary on the current plight of the U.S. political system:

What America might want to know right now is: how come Hillary Clinton doesn’t have any legal problems? Why aren’t DOJ investigators examining the financial records of the Clinton Foundation? You would think somebody would want to find out how over $120 million of Russian “charitable donations” ended up on its ledgers around the time that Secretary of State HRC approved the Uranium One deal — compared to which, Bill Clinton’s $500,000 payment from a Russian bank for giving a speech around the same time just looks like walking-around money…

…Watergate begins to look as quaint and simple as a game of Chutes and Ladders compared to RussiaGate. Not only are both parties implicated one way or another in multiple nefarious schemes, plots, and intrigues, but the Department of Justice and its subsidiary, the FBI, look culpable in a range of cover-ups and mis-directions. If the DOJ becomes disabled, how does any of this get resolved?

The whole extravaganza is heading toward a constitutional crisis that might clean out the system like a Death Wish coffee enema. Sentiment may arise for Mr. Mueller to step aside, if President Trump doesn’t make the rash decision to simply fire him. The latter would certainly foment a constitutional crisis that could include an effort to run Trump over with the 25th amendment. In the event, we’ll be in a new kind of civil war.

CLINTON’S LINK TO PUTIN is the underreported ‘dossier’ bombshell

by Marc A. Thiessen, Washington Post:

The news that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid forresearch used in the discredited Trump-Russia “dossier” is a bombshell. But even more shocking — and overlooked — is the revelation that the firm the Clinton campaign hired to compile that dossier, Fusion GPS, is the same firm that has been accused in recent congressional testimony of launching a smear campaign in Washington against Sergei Magnitsky, the Russian lawyer who was tortured and killed in a Russian prison in 2009 after uncovering a $230 million tax theft by 23 Kremlin-linked companies and individuals close to President Vladimir Putin.

Which raises the question no one seems to be asking: Why was Hillary Clinton using an opposition research company with Putin-linked clients to dig up dirt on Donald Trump?

The claimed link that was identified in congressional testimony has its roots in the Putin regime’s lobbying for the repeal of the 2012 Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act, which froze assets and banned visas for Russians involved in or benefiting from Magnitsky’s murder, as well as for others involved in torture, extrajudicial killings or abuses against those seeking to promote human rights or expose illegal activity by Russian officials. So far, some 35 Putin cronies have been sanctioned under the act, infuriating the Russian president.

After the act passed, prominent Magnitsky supporters in Russia began to be mysteriously poisonedthrown off buildings or shot on bridges in front of the Kremlin. At the same time — according to testimony by Magnitsky’s boss, Hermitage Capital Management chief executive William Browder, recently made to the Senate Judiciary Committee — Fusion GPS launched a lobbying campaign in Washington to repeal the Magnitsky Act by charging (a) that Magnitsky was not murdered and (b) that he and Browder were, in fact, the ones responsible for the tax fraud. Of course, Magnitsky was blameless, and Browder’s only crime was that he virtually single-handedly led the charge for passage of the Magnitsky Act — originally opposed by the Obama administration, including Clinton’s State Department.

One of the faces of the campaign to repeal the Magnitsky Act was the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya (the same lawyer who famously met with Donald Trump Jr. in 2016). She visited the United States in 2016 ostensibly to lobby on adoption issues (Putin had barred Americans from adopting Russian children in response to the passage of the Magnitsky Act), but her real purpose was to push the repeal of the act and prevent the passage of a global law bearing Magnitsky’s name. Concurrently, Veselnitskaya defended Prevezon, a company sanctioned under the Magnitsky Act for laundering money from the tax fraud Magnitsky uncovered. Prevezon is owned by Denis Katsyv, a Putin-linked oligarch and son of a former Russian government minister.

In July, Browder appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he testified that Prevezon “hired Glenn Simpson of the firm Fusion GPS to conduct a smear campaign against me and Sergei Magnitsky. . . . He contacted a number of major newspapers and other publications to spread false information that Sergei Magnitsky was not murdered, was not a whistleblower and was instead a criminal.” As a former Wall Street Journal reporter, Simpson had extensive contacts with his former media colleagues he could use to spread anti-Magnitsky propaganda.

MUST READ: Things Have Gotten Fishy in the Chicken Industry

0

Contributed by Sam Bocetta, SGT report:

We all grew up on that urban legend about the lady who bit into a piece of chicken at her neighborhood KFC and discovered that it was a deep-fried rat. Most rational people realize at once that this is the stuff of folklore or myth. But the truth may be just as strange as the fiction.

A recent report on fast-casual restaurants found that the vast majority of fast food joints use meat that has been treated with antibiotics that are believed to create bacteria that is immune to traditional antibiotics. What this means is that if you eat their meat and then you get sick, the drugs your doctor prescribes to treat your illness may not work.

In other words, the chicken and sausage at your local Popeye’s or Dunkin Donuts could be just as unhygienic and unhealthy as eating a deep-fried gutter dweller.

And it doesn’t stop there. A larger problem is also afoot and it involves the food industry’s fudging of numbers when it comes to food safety dates.

In late-September, the Guardian blew the lid off UK-based 2 Sisters Food Group. The food group in question is the top supplier of supermarket chicken in the United Kingdom allegedly misled customers into purchasing out-of-date meat. The evidence pointed to the tainted meat being distributed to no less than five chain grocers in the region, including Aldi.

Even those companies that received passing scores in that recent survey aren’t above suspicion. McDonald’s, a chain that scored a B+, just introduced their Buttermilk Chicken Tenders and they are definitely cause for raised eyebrows. In a taste test earlier this month, I found them to be the grisliest meat on the fast-casual scene.

When you attempt to rip one in half, you are met by resistance. Instead of tearing, the meat twists like you are wringing out a washcloth. If it is, indeed, chicken, it is some sort of mutant chicken that’s pure sinew. If these things aren’t on steroids, I’ll eat my hat (at least my hat is hormone-free).

It would appear as though there is no safe place to get meat these days unless you kill the chicken and cook it yourself in your own backyard. And it’s hardly a conundrum that’s brand-spanking new. Back in 2014, companies like Burger King, McDonald’s, KFC and Starbucks were involved in a toxic food scandal after it was discovered that they were supplying their Chinese branches with expired meat.

What’s worse is the fact that we’re not only forced to cope with the questionable quality of the chicken we purchase from grocery stores and fast food restaurants. We also must grapple with our meals being potentially compromised by unethical employees.

Earlier this year, a Mississippi Jack’s Family Restaurant location came under social media scrutiny for alleged food contamination after a 16-year old girl reported an employee for smearing menstrual blood on a customer’s hamburger.

The madness doesn’t stop there either; Burger King has admitted in the past that they sell “beef” burgers that actually contain horsemeat. In 2016, a Mirror expose revealed that Mickey D’s so-called “chicken” McNuggets only contain 45{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of actual chicken.

Among the other ingredients in McNuggets, there is dextrose, a sugar that shoemakers use to make leather more pliable. It’s not uncommon for fast food joints to add fillers as well. Oftentimes, they will use additives to beef up their chicken tender’s profile and use the excuse that the ingredient limits oil spatter during the frying process.

Fortunately, we live in more self-aware, health-conscious times and reputable companies are beginning to take notice. Several poultry purveyors advertise the fact that their meats are antibiotic and non-GMO on their labels.

Here is a short list of supermarket brands that you can trust:

  • Whole Foods

  • Katie’s Best

  • Readington Farms

  • Feel Good Foods

Unless you’re a scientist, you will likely never know exactly what you are getting from any frozen food provider which is why the best option is to go directly to the source. In a perfect world, everyone would be able to buy from a local farm, right?

Well, the truth is that you can. By joining a club like Local Harvest or Eat Wild, you are guaranteed to get fresh, farm-raised meats. They connect you to nearby farmers who are committed to promoting the benefits of choosing 100{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} grass-fed animals and other animals that have been given natural diets.

If you’re hankering for the fast-casual experience, there are still fresh options available to the public. According to nutrition specialist Dr. Josh Axe, the healthiest fast-food restaurants include Chopt, Freshii, Pizza Fusion, Tender Greens and Veggie Grill.

If none of these region-specific restaurants have locations in your area, you’re not alone. Of the ten that Dr. Axe mentions, I’ve only ever heard of two of them and seen one. So for those of us who don’t reside in major cities, here is my list of the healthiest fast-casual dining establishments in America:

  • Panera Bread (Their chicken is hormone-free and their organic whole wheat wraps are awesome)

  • Chipotle (Unlike Taco Bell, you won’t get leathery chicken strips or pale tomato chunks here, everything is certified fresh; you get robust, natural ingredients freshly prepared in front of your very own eyes)

  • Taco Del Mar (Low-cal burritos with less sodium and fat than the competition…just don’t eat their Mondo Breakfast Burrito or you’ll be on that treadmill all day long)

Now that we’ve taken a look at the best of the best, let’s take a look at the worst of the worst.

  • Zaxby’s (Grilled chicken with more calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger and more sodium than a serving of canned soup)

  • Chick-Fil-A (MSG-loaded breading is just the beginning of my problems with this one)

Now that we’ve seen how fishy the meat industry can be, it should be easier to select a healthier option. When in doubt, make sure to pay extra attention to what the packaging says. For one thing, “organic” does not necessarily mean “antibiotic-free.” Always research the meat you eat before you eat it. That being said, don’t be a chicken because, as we’ve seen, there are plenty of reputable sources available for quality meats.
