|Top Pizzagate Researcher David Seaman’s Videos Vanish From Youtube After BuzzFeed Hit Piece
Posted: 26 Feb 2017 09:06 AM PST
YouTube channel of journalist David Seaman, who has been a core force investigating Pizzagate, is now blank. Hundreds of videos are missing.
The independent journalist did countless video’s showing his findings in the Pizzagate conspiracy, which revolves around an alleged child sex-trafficking ring in Washington D.C.
For more on Pizzagate, check out our other articles on the subject and all the questions still remaining, like the coincidence of these pizza shops using logos that the FBI classified as pedophile symbols.
Seaman’s YouTube channel has 154,156 subscribers but is currently displaying no videos as of 12 a.m. EST 2/26/17.
Seaman’s Vid.me account is also listing no videos.
It’s officially unknown why Seaman’s Youtube channel had all of its videos wiped, but it might have something to do with Joe Bernstein, a senior technology reporter for BuzzFeed News who recently wrote a hit piece on Seaman calling him the “Pizzagate King of the Internet.”
Bernstein also mocked the topics that Seaman covers despite probably never studying anything he mentioned there.
This sentence shows your lack of knowledge “the other nabobs of the New World order” I bet you never even studied the academic documents on the New World Order.
Let me help you Burnstain, talking about the Rothschilds is now banned on Reddit, while massive fraud allegations surround the family.
While you don’t think that a New World Order or “shadow government” exist, credible people have talked about it and exposed its existence.
Congressman Larry P. McDonald and Senator Barry Goldwater warned about the plot by those various “nabobs” and Senator Daniel Inouye warned about a “shadow government with its own military and funding mechanism free from checks and balances and the law itself.” Danny Cassolaro was murdered for his investigation into what he called the “Octopus.” Today it would be termed “the deep state” or “shadow government.” President Dwight D. Eisenhower even warned of a shadow government.
The new world order is a decade old political plot to bring about one world government. Whether you believe it or not, the academic documents are all there. The plan has been echoed by the elite for years, constantly stating we need a “new world order,” a term that was originally spread by Adolf Hitler who was brought to power by the House Of Rothschild, who Hitler’s mother, Maria Schicklgruber, worked for as a servant. Hitler was also partially funded by Prescott Bush, who is George H. W. Bush’s father.
Further evidence comes from General Smedley Butler, who said that a cabal was trying to overthrow President Franklin Delanor Roosevelt and that the cabal included Prescott Bush. Decades later we received more proof from another U.S. General, Wesley Clark, who said, “wars were planned and that people within the Bush administration planned to invade seven countries within five years.” And of course, everyone remembers President John F. Kennedy’s infamous secret society speech.
Some people believe that JFK was talking about the Soviets. However, the Soviets did not control the media, which was the focus of his speech to a group of newspaper editors. The Soviets were known to the public, they were not a “secret society.” There is no question that JFK was talking about the globalists or deep state of his day the unelected shadow government.
In the year 2000, The Wall Street Journal talked about the New World Order and sex trafficking in an article titled “Sex Trafficking: A Dark Side To the New World Order.”
We reached out to Seaman for comment, but a response was not received before this article was published.
UPDATE: 1:00 P.M. EST- The following Reddit post was sent to WRC in regards to David Seaman posted by an alleged friend of Seaman.
Seaman did indeed have his friend killed previously Ashley Lauren Joy Jones who was found dead in her home along with Kelly Fears Wrenn stabbed to death as the Reddit post said.
Further confirmed by Seaman himself here with an archive of his tweet.

|White Helmets banned from entering US for 2017 Oscars, Hollywood dreams dashed
Posted: 26 Feb 2017 04:34 AM PST
LOS ANGELES (WeAreChange) — Syrian cinematographer Khaled Khateeb, who helped produce the Oscar-nominated propaganda documentary short The White Helmets, has reportedly been barred from entering the United States after officials found “derogatory information” about him. Consequently, the 21-year-old will not be attending the 2017 Oscars to be held in Los Angeles.
The Associated Press reported:
In an official statement released by the White Helmets on Saturday, the organisation made out the situation as being the fault of the Syrian “regime” yet earlier contradictorily claimed that “we won’t be at the OSCARS due to intensity of work” and that “our priority continues to be helping civilians & rescue operations in #Syria.”
“The Syria Civil Defense will not be attending the Oscars in Los Angeles,” the statement read.
“Raed Saleh, Head of the Syria Civil Defense is the holder of US visa. Raed was planning to attend but can not make it, the intense air strikes across the country mean he must focus on work inside Syria.
“Khaled Khatib, a Syria Civil Defence volunteer and cameraman on the film, was due to attend. Unfortunately Khaled Khatib was not able to travel to the Oscars due to his passport being cancelled by the Syrian regime, despite having been issued a US visa specifically to attend the awards ceremony.
“The Syria Civil Defence are grateful for the platform the film ‘The White Helmets’ is providing for their humanitarian message to reach around the world.
“The Syria Civil Defence wants to thank all the people around the world that have sent messages of support for their Oscar nomination.”
The 40-minute long Netflix documentary, which is now being turned into a feature-length film by George Clooney, portrays the White Helmets known as ‘The Syrian Civil Defense’ dramatically rescuing 60,000 people from bombed-out buildings in war-torn Syria.
However, as independent Middle East-based journalists such as Eva Bartlett and Vanessa Beeley have found through extensive investigations and on-the-ground reporting, the White Helmets “civil defense organisation” is nothing less than a terrorist-supporting, US and British-backed group of imposters, who, as Bartlett said are “white helmets by day and terrorists by night.”
Interestingly, a major shareholder in Netflix just so happens to be the Capital Research Global Investors who host a number of luminaries of the military industrial complex on its books including Lockheed Martin and Boeing. In 2015, George Soros, the infamous billionaire globalist hedge-fund manager, bought up 317,534 shares in Netflix reported to be worth $32.79 million. In 2016, Soros curiously dissolved those shares.
It is alleged that the White Helmets group has been handed $60 million from US AID, the UK Foreign Office and various EU nations such as the Netherlands to be the PR front for Western-backed propaganda about the Syrian conflict.
Despite the fact that they were created and are still generously funded by NATO members states, particularly the US and UK, the White Helmets’ official statement still deceitfully claims that they are somehow “fiercely independent” and “have accepted no money from governments, corporations or anyone directly involved in the Syrian conflict.”
Despite the fact that they are a NATO construct embedded with Al-Nusra front, ISIS (a US-created terror group) and affiliated with the majority of US-backed terrorist brigades infiltrating Syria, the group claims to hold the ground of neutrality by deceitfully declaring they are not “tied to any political group in Syria, or anywhere else”
Beeley comments regarding the below video:
“The following video is a compilation of the testimony from Syrian civilians released from a five-year incarceration in East Aleppo, under a terrorist regime and occupation led by Al-Qaeda factions (aka Nusra Front and assorted extremist militant brigades), also funded by the US, NATO and Gulf states. These testimonies attest to the US and UK construct, the White Helmets, being nothing more than ‘Nusra Front’s civil defense’.”
“The Syrian Arab Red Crescent also told 21WIRE editor, Vanessa Beeley, that they had never seen the White Helmets conducting humanitarian work in East Aleppo, either during or after occupation by the extremist groups.”
In late 2016, the White Helmets produced a staged ‘mannequin challenge’ propaganda video promoting their ‘rescue work’, which after backfiring massively was quickly deleted from the group’s YouTube account and all references promptly removed from Twitter. The footage sparked questions as to the legitimacy of the group’s other regularly posted videos which are deemed to also be staged for the purposes of propaganda promotion.
The video portrays ‘victims’ and ‘rescuers’ posing motionless for several seconds before the fake rescue operation begins immediately followed by the agonized screams of an ‘injured’ actor.
“Are we finally seeing vindication of the two years of independent investigation into this terrorist-supporting group of frauds, whose creators have milked the general public with a myriad of glossy, expensive marketing campaigns, designed to appeal to our better nature and to implicate the general public in crowd funding for terrorism inside Syria?” asks Beeley.
“Perhaps this Oscar bid for the White Helmets is an indication of the level to which the ruling elite have stooped to maintain their facade, which has been eroded so successfully by the few brave people who have taken a stand against their global machinations, such as Tulsi Gabbard and Carla Ortiz, both of whom potentially risk their careers to present the truth of what is actually happening inside Syria.
“Has the steadfast bravery, courage and resistance of the Syrian people, the majority of whom are fully supportive of the Syrian state and the Syrian Arab Army, finally demolished the wall of lies that has prevented their voices being heard?
“History will show that Hollywood narrowly avoided inviting Al-Qaeda, terrorist affiliates onto its red carpet…truth to power has once more emerged victorious as it did in the prevention of the Nobel Peace Prize for this same organization of criminals, thieves and sectarian violence perpetrators and supporters, the not-so-white White Helmets. The ghosts of East Aleppo.
“The White Helmets propaganda film may still be awarded the Oscar, but it will be a hollow prize when the recipients have been denied entry into the country of origin. It may also be used as further leverage to demonize the Trump administration, how dare they “ban” the “noble humanitarians”. Of course, that will be another straw man attack, as the oft-citedted ban was lifted prior to the White Helmets being denied entry. It is worth noting that it is the same Democratic partisan, cartel of propagandists, iconizing the White Helmets, who are demonizing Trump. Coincidence?
“If the Netflix documentary does win the Oscar, it will be fascinating to watch the director, Orlando von Einsiedel and producer, Joanna Natasegara explain away the claims that the “saviours of all humanity” are just “too busy” to attend, despite Khateeb’s euphoric declarations of his forthcoming attendance, all over his social media accounts.
“The truth is revealing itself bit by bit and when the White Helmets fall, much of the NATO and Gulf State war effort in Syria will be damaged beyond repair.”

|Cornell Student Exposes the GMO Propaganda that is Pushed in University
Posted: 25 Feb 2017 09:34 PM PST
Article Via: Alt Healthworks
My name is Robert, and I am a Cornell University undergraduate student. However, I’m not sure if I want to be one any more. Allow me to explain.
Cornell, as an institution, appears to be complicit in a shocking amount of ecologically destructive, academically unethical, and scientifically deceitful behavior. Perhaps the most potent example is Cornell’s deep ties to industrial GMO agriculture, and the affiliated corporations such as Monsanto. I’d like to share how I became aware of this troubling state of affairs.
Throughout my secondary education, I’ve always had a passion for science. In particular, physics and mathematics captured my fascination. My sophomore AP physics teacher, Mr. Jones, became my main source of motivation to succeed. He convinced us students that our generation was crucial to repairing humanity’s relationship to science, and how we would play key roles in solving immense global issues, such as climate change. Thank you Mr. Jones! Without your vision, I would have never had the chance to attend such an amazing university.
I came to Cornell as freshman, deeply unaware of our current GMO agriculture paradigm, and my university’s connection to it. It just wasn’t on my radar quite yet. After two years of school, I was rather uninspired to continue traditional study. I never felt quite at ease, jumping through hoops, taking classes and tests that didn’t inspire me, in exchange for a piece of paper (degree) that somehow magically granted me a superior life. I know many undergraduates fit right in with the university education model, and that’s fantastic. I certainly didn’t, and my mental and physical health began to suffer as a result. I was left with no choice but to take a leave of absence, and pursue another path.
Instead, I began to self-study nutrition in earnest, honestly, out of pure necessity. Luckily, I found Cornell Professor Emeritus T. Colin Campbell’s legendary epidemiological research on nutrition and human disease. His evidence was so clear that I quickly transitioned to a plant-based diet. This personal dietary shift had profound benefits, dispelled my depression, and led me to a deep fascination with the precursor to nutrition: agriculture. I became particularly interested in agroecology. I was astonished to learn that there existed alternatives to chemical-intensive, corporate-controlled models of agriculture, and that they were far safer, more effective, and more sustainable. During my time away from Cornell, I participated in three unique seasons of agroecological crop production, with incredible results. I am immensely grateful for these experiences.
It’s impossible to study and practice agroecology without becoming deeply aware of the other end of the spectrum: the genetic modification of our food supply, ruled by giant agribusiness corporations.
Currently, the vast majority of U.S. commodity crops (corn, soy, alfalfa, sugar beet) are genetically engineered to either withstand Roundup herbicide or produce Bt toxin pesticide. These “technologies” are ecologically damaging and unsafe. The majority of these crops go to feed animals in factory farms. The remainder generally gets converted into corn syrup, white sugar, vegetable oil, or biofuels — you know, good stuff! This combined approach of growing GMO commodity monoculture crops, and feeding them to factory-farmed livestock, is one of the most ecologically destructive forces our planet has ever seen. It’s also a leading contributor to climate change. In fact, some experts believe it to be the leading cause.
As Professor T. Colin Campbell will tell you, the foods that come from this system (animal products and processed foods) are responsible for causing the vast majority of chronic disease. That’s a story for another day.
Cornell’s GMO Propaganda Campaign
I came back to Cornell a changed person, with a drastically different perspective. I was in for quite a shock, however: I sat in on a course entitled “The GMO Debate.” I was expecting members of an intellectual community coming together, with proponents and critics of GMO food each giving the best verified evidence they had to support their cause. Given all that I had learned about GMO agriculture, I was excited to participate for the “GMO skeptic” side.
The GMO Debate course, which ran in the fall of 2015, was a blatant display of unscientific propaganda in an academic setting. There were a total of 4 active professors in the course, and several guest speakers. They took turns each session defending industrial agriculture and biotechnology with exactly zero critical examination of GMOs. In spite of the course’s name, there was a complete lack of actual “debate.” Here are some of the more memorable claims I heard that fall semester:
* GMO food is necessary to feed the world
It gets better. During the semester, emails were released following a Freedom of Information Act request, showing that all four of the professors in the class, as well as several guest speakers, the head of Cornell’s pro-GMO group “Alliance for Science,” and the Dean of the College of Arts and Life Sciences were all copied in on emails with Monsanto. This was part of a much larger circle of academics promoting GMO crops on behalf of the biotech industry. Jonathan Latham PhD, virologist and editor of independentsciencenews.org, documented this in an article titled “The Puppetmasters of Academia.” I highly recommend giving it a read, for further context.
Perhaps saddest of all was the inclusion of several visiting African agriculture-academics in the course. They were brought here by the “Cornell Alliance for Science. ” This organization was completely funded by a $5.6 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and appears to espouse only pro-GMO rhetoric. For those of you who are unaware, Bill Gates is a proponent of using agricultural biotechnology in Africa, India, and other developing regions. So in essence, a group of African representatives got indoctrinated into the industrial and GMO agriculture framework, and were sent home to disseminate this information … after all, who could question the expertise of an Ivy League powerhouse such as Cornell?
I then learned of Cornell’s deep historic ties to the biotech industry, which explained what I witnessed in the “GMO Debate” course. Notable examples include the invention of both the controversial bovine growth hormone, and the particle bombardment (“gene gun”) method of creating GMO crops. Both of these cases are connected to Monsanto.
To say the least, I was completely stunned.
What I’m Going to Do About All of This
You didn’t think I was just going to complain about a pro-GMO, industry-sponsored Cornell all day, did you? Good, because I have come up with a plan to create actual, lasting change on campus: a student-led, expert-backed, evidence-based GMO course.
I have decided to host an independent course on the current GMO paradigm, in response to Cornell’s course. It will be held on campus, but will have zero influence from Cornell or any biotech organization. Every Wednesday evening, from September 7th to November 16, we will host a lecture. This lecture series is completely free, open to the entire Cornell community and broader public, and will be published online (for free, forever) at my project, gmowtf.com.
There will be several experts and scientists coming in to lecture for this course. Frances Moore Lappé, of ‘Diet for a Small Planet’ and ‘World Hunger: 10 Myths’ fame, will be introducing the course on September 7, via video presentation. She will be speaking on how GMO agriculture is unnecessary to end world hunger.
Steven Druker is a public interest attorney and author of the powerful book ‘Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public,’ which Jane Goodall (in her foreword) hails as “one of the most important books in the last 50 years.” He will be giving two lectures that elaborate on the themes in the book’s subtitle and demonstrate that the GMO venture has been chronically and crucially dependent on deception, and could not survive without it.
Jonathan Latham PhD will be giving two lectures, on the dangers of Roundup Ready and Bt crops, respectively. He will also be participating in our special October 5 debate, representing the anti-GMO panel, alongside Michael Hansen PhD, a senior scientist for the Consumers Union. Jonathan has direct experience genetically modifying organisms, so his expertise is guaranteed.
Allison Wilson PhD is a geneticist and editor/science director of the Bioscience Resource Project. She will be giving a lecture on how GMOs are actually created, to dispel any industry myths of precision, accuracy, or deep genetic understanding.
Belinda Martineau PhD is a geneticist with an interesting history — she was on the team of genetic engineers that created the first commercial GM food crop, the Flavr Savr Tomato. She authored a book on her experience, titled “First Fruit: The Creation of the Flavr Savr Tomato and the Birth of Biotech Foods.” Her lecture will be a historical and personal account of the science, regulation, and commercialization of genetically engineered foods, effectively giving context for today’s GMO paradigm.
My personal scientific hero, T. Colin Campbell, who started me on this whole journey years ago, will not be speaking on GMOs per se … but will address some critically important, related topics: academic freedom and scientific integrity. He began his Cornell career over half a century ago, and has “seen it all.” He has fascinating anecdotes that will illuminate these campus-wide issues beautifully.
Jane Goodall, if you’re reading this, you are personally invited to take time out of your busy schedule to come and give the final capstone lecture. I know how passionate you are about saving our species, our planet, and all of its beautiful inhabitants. Your wise presence in this project would take it to the next level. Alternatively, please consider a short video interview. This offer stands indefinitely. Same for Vandana Shiva!
All in all, our independent GMO lecture series will focus on real threats and real solutions to our current ecological crisis … and perhaps most importantly, will feature 100% less Monsanto influence than Cornell’s course! Sounds good to me.
Taking It Further
I’m on my second leave of absence from Cornell to work on this project, and due to my experiences, I have somewhat given up on a Cornell degree … not that I was ever intensely focused on attaining one. This GMO course is by far the most important thing I can do with my Cornell “career.” However, it is just the beginning of my plan.
Remember the $5.6 million Bill Gates gave Cornell through his foundation, to push the pro-GMO propaganda? Well, to coincide with our course, we’re launching an initiative to raise the same amount of money or more to sponsor more appropriate forms of agriculture, educational outreach, and activism.
Go to gmowtf.com for more information, but in essence, this would finance:
* Continued grassroots educational activism at Cornell, and similar programs in other compromised universities (UC Davis and Berkeley, University of Florida, etc.) across the country.
Mr. Gates, if you truly care about feeding the world in a safe and sustainable manner, and if you are truly dedicated to science and to the kind of open, fact-based discourse on which it depends, I implore you to learn the important facts about which you have apparently been misinformed — and which are being systematically misrepresented by the Cornell organization you are funding.
You can easily gain illumination by reading “Altered Genes, Twisted Truth” by Steven Druker, one of our key contributors to our independent GMO course. You might find Chapter 11, on the ramifications and risks of altering complex information systems, of particular interest. You are, after all, the world’s most famous software developer!
As that chapter demonstrates, biotechnicians are significantly altering the most complex yet least understood group of information systems on earth — the ones that undergird the development and function of living organisms. Yet, they fail to implement the kind of safeguards that software engineers have learned are imperative when making even minor revisions to life-critical human-made systems. Can this be legitimately called science-based engineering?
Bill, feel free to reach out to any of the experts in our course, and don’t be hesitant to update your views on GMO agriculture in light of new understanding. A genuine scientist lives by this principle.
I invite you all to go to gmowtf.com and explore my proposals more. Please bear with the construction of the site in the coming weeks, in preparation for our amazing GMO course!
We live in somewhat of a scientific dark age. Our universities have become extensions of corporate power, at the cost of our health, livelihoods, and ecology. This has to stop, yesterday.
We cannot afford to spread lies to our undergraduate students. Cornell, please reconsider your ways. Until you do, I will be doing everything in my power to counter your industry GMO propaganda efforts with the facts.

|Karma Hits Bill Maher After Taking Responsibility For Milo Yiannopoulos’s Fall Video Surfaces Of Him Defending Pedophilia
Posted: 25 Feb 2017 08:57 PM PST
Bill Maher has been taking credit for Milo Yiannopoulos’ fall, after interviewing Yiannopoulos on his show “Real Time” days before Milo’s infamous comments were leaked, but Maher’s own past may come back to haunt him. In 1998 Bill Maher defended pedophilia in a much worse way than Yiannopoulos. These types of jokes aren’t funny to anyone.
Following decisions by CPAC and Simon and Schuster to cut ties with Yiannopoulos after video surfaced of him appearing to defend pedophilia, Maher attempted to take credit for the animosity toward the former Breitbart editor, citing Yiannopoulos’on his talk show as the beginning of the end of Yiannopoulos’s career.
“By the end of the weekend, by dinnertime Monday, he’s dropped as a speaker at CPAC. Then he’s dropped by Breitbart, and his book deal falls through,” Maher told the New York Times. “As I say, sunlight is the best disinfectant. You’re welcome.”
But Maher may be getting some karma as that same attention may now be coming his way, as a 19-year-old video from his former ABC talk show, “Politically Incorrect,” resurfaced earlier this week. The video features Maher defending Mary Kay Letourneau, a teacher convicted of having sex with a 12-year-old male student. Letourneau and the student went on to have two children together while the boy was a teenager. Letourneau was imprisoned for violating the teenager and committing pedophilia Maher felt that the imprisonment was unjustified an absolutely shocking comment.
“She is in jail because she is in love. That’s how I view it,” Maher said. “Basically, they’re having a family and they’re keeping the mother in jail because she won’t conform to what society feels should be the perfect American family.”
When Maher was challenged by rock singer Henry Rollins and conservative activist Celeste Grieg both said that it was sickening and wasn’t right.
“Absolutely sickening here is a woman who is over 20 years older and she raped this kid.”
Maher responded, “raped common how can a woman rape a man?”
“I think that an older woman can manipulate a young kid and I don’t think it’s really healthy I don’t think it’s healthy for a kid who’s going to be 14 with two children out in the world, I don’t think those children will grow up fairly damaged and that kid is going to grow up fairly damaged.”
“So you are on her side okay,” Maher said.
Maher, although probably joking, has ridiculed Yiannopoulos for his own jokes on pedophilia and it’s a pure example of hypocrisy.
What do you think about Maher’s comments and Pedophilia jokes in general in a society that is increasingly wanting to become more politically correct? Let us know in the comment section below!
|GOP draft of Obamacare repeal plan could leave 20 Million people without insurance
Posted: 25 Feb 2017 02:43 PM PST
A new GOP draft for repealing Obamacare indicates that as many as 20 million Americans could lose insurance.
Politico’s Paul Demko on Friday presented a draft of the bill drafted by House Republicans that would repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. While the details of the draft are not final, it is a widespread plan that would take apart crucial aspects of Obamacare, particularly Medicaid expansion and taxes that currently fund the health care law.
Larry Levitt – senior VP at the non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation added: “A substantial number of people could lose coverage because it’s no longer affordable.”
The draft also seeks to repeal the penalty for Americans who didn’t purchase health insurance. It also suggests shifting payments for expanded coverage to more block-style grants for individuals, as well as state governments. House Speaker Paul Ryan claims the repeal bill will also defund Planned Parenthood, and strip the organization of hundreds of millions of dollars of Medicaid’s financial investments – this makes up most of the organization’s state funding.
Ohio Governor John Kasich – more moderate of a Republican than Trump, stated he “completely” disagrees with the draft legislation and the size of the tax credits. He said he discussed it with President Trump in their meeting Friday.
By replacing Obamacare subsidies, the House bill – starting in 2020 – gives tax credits based on age rather than income. For one under the age of 30, the credit would be a sum of $2,000. This would double for beneficiaries over the age of 60. However, HHS Secretary Tom Price wants the subsidies to be less generous for most age brackets.
Key parts of the draft bill include but are not limited to:
The draft “addresses the major issues and is a serious proposal for transitioning out of Obamacare,” said Ed Haislmaier, a senior research fellow and healthcare policy expert at the Heritage Foundation, and on Trump’s transition team.
Washington State Democrat Senator Patty Murray added: “The deeply harmful path House Republicans have laid out would spell disaster for families nationwide. President Trump, who promised families he would provide insurance for everyone, should be the first to oppose it.”
It is uncertain whether some of the aspects of the bill could be realistically accomplished by budget reconciliation alone – the Republicans’ desired method for repealing Obamacare, because it only requires a majority of the Senate. Anything passed under reconciliation is required to be tied to federal spending and revenues – eliminating federal mandates on what benefits insurers must cover and allowing insurers to charge older Americans greater sums have been said to not be possible, experts claim.
