Why I totally support background checks... for members of Congress and the Obama administration

Background checks
(NaturalNews) In the midst of the big debate about "background checks," I thought it important to weigh in on the issue and profess my full and total support for background checks... for members of Congress. We need to know who these people are, how they all seem to collect so much financial wealth while "serving the public," and whether they have any history of violating their sworn oaths of office to the Constitution.

We also need deep background checks on the entire Obama administration, including Obama himself whose background seems clouded in questionable documents and hidden records. And if the federal government is going to say the People of America are criminals if they smoke marijuana, then it only makes sense to call for full drug tests for the entire Obama administration. After all, if they have nothing to hide, why not submit to such tests? (See how that logic works?)

While we're at it, we should probably also test every Senator and Supreme Court justice for mind-altering pharmaceuticals and chemotherapy drugs which cause "chemo brain." We can't have Supreme Court justices sitting on the bench, making brain-damaged decisions because they're in the middle of a toxic chemo treatment. (And yes, chemotherapy really does cause brain damage.)

Psych drugs are yet another issue. How many members of Congress are on suicide-promoting antidepressant drugs? Shouldn't this disqualify them from voting on legislation because they are no longer of sound mind?

How many members of Congress are on statin drugs? Blood pressure medications? Or just badly in need of a colon cleanse or a liver flush?

While the federal government says that the People can't be trusted with anything -- and especially not firearms -- the far more sobering truth is that we the People have no real basis to trust those running the government! They might be sociopaths, power freaks, medication heads or substance addicts.

Why should we trust DHS with 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition when they refuse to even acknowledge that these bullets exist? Why should we trust the TSA to reach down our pants at the airport? Why should we trust Eric Holder to dish out "justice" when he's the guy masterminding the running of guns across the border to Mexico? Why should we trust Ben Bernanke when he's a serial counterfeiter?

I'll trust a Texas farmer with a rifle far more than I'll trust a Senator with an agenda to destroy the Constitution. And if we're going to talk about background checks, let's make 'em count where they are needed the most: checking out the backgrounds of the bureaucrats running the government.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
