Bill Gates is back all over the media in recent days. making a few comments that help us to further understand his position on mass vaccination and the risks associated.

Firstly, though, it’s important to note that Gates also recently making a point to warn his audience and his believers that lies are spreading faster than truth.

“Very incorrect things that are very titillating…can spread much faster than the truth on social media, and we’ve always seen that with vaccines….social media can make that even worse…these social media companies can see what is being said on their platform and take things that are absolutely wrong and remove those things from the platform.

“How you divide that up, and draw that line…these are complex issues. It has been a spreader of lot of things…and how do you strike a balance?”

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

Here’s that interview:

The establishment is working very hard to dominate the narrative on Covid-19, and with these comments, Bill Gates has thrown himself into the censorship arena, warning the poor public that dangerous information is the latest and greatest threat.

Gates’ publicly stated intention to deliver ‘7 billion vaccines to healthy people‘ is no secret. But this elaborate business plan, in which his foundation has hundreds of millions of dollars invested, will not work if the public distrusts a vaccine or simply does not trust the ‘authorities.’

To address this problem, a Gates funded pandemic simulation in 2019, Event 201, outlined a strategy called ‘the flood’ aimed at flooding the internet with information favorable to the mission of the WHO, Gates Foundation, et al. Journalist Derrick Broze covered this in detail here.

The other major component of controlling the narrative on the need and effectiveness of a mass vaccine involves minimizing known and probable risks of such vaccines. Bill Gates has said in his own blog that mRNA and DNA vaccines will be the most likely candidates for a global vaccine, given that the vaccine could be produced without needing actual cultures of CV-19, instead using synthesized DNA of the virus. This would introduce a new level of risk, given that these types of vaccines have never yet been approved for human use.

We were hit by fact checkers when we tried to bring this information to the public, and subsequently found a Moderna white paper expressing the company’s uncertainty of the negative effects of DNA vaccines.

“DNA vaccine work began thirty years ago, but as yet there are no licensed DNA vaccines and most remain in Phase 1 testing.

(Figure 5) The key challenge associated with DNA vaccines is that they must penetrate the cell nucleus (crossing two membranes; the cytoplasm and the nucleus). The DNA must then be transcribed in the nucleus into mRNA before moving to the cytoplasm to stimulate antigen production. This core complex pathway often requires both larger doses and special, often painful delivery devices using electric shocks or gold microspheres into person’s skin to deliver the DNA vaccine. Once inside the nucleus, DNA vaccines have a risk of permanently changing a person’s DNA. ” [Source]

READ: Moderna Vaccine White Paper – “DNA Vaccines Have a Risk of Permanently Changing a Person’s DNA”

You have to understand that this is an unreal amount of money at stake here. Hundreds of billions are being invested in the search for a CV-19 vaccine, and to up the ante considerably, the stock market is now severely affected anytime any news of promise or failure in a vaccine is released. This has all been positioned so that the entire world economy hinges on whether or not a vaccine is found.

Given this dynamic, of course a business man like Gates is going to downplay the risks while talking up the dire need for his product. It’s sales 101.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • In 2017, he did bring it up risk in reference to a visit with President Trump, saying that Trump asked him for his opinion on setting up a commission looking at the ill effects of vaccines.

    Gates commented:

    “…Robert Kennedy Jr. was advising him that vaccines were causing bad things and I said ‘no, that’s a dead end, that would be a bad thing, don’t do that.” [Source]

    This is from 2018, and it’s footage of a nervous Bill Gates talking about how he discouraged POTUS from getting a vaccine commission together to look at the dangers of vaccines.

    Gates is being found out BIGLY!

    READ: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Responds to Bill Gates’ Statements on a Mandatory Coronavirus Vaccine

    Looking at the potential negative effects of vaccines is a ‘bad thing’ according to Bill Gates, who, again, personally has hundreds of millions of dollars invested in a CV-19 vaccine alone. Why would considering the risks of a medicine be considered a ‘bad thing?’ This is especially telling given the backdrop of heavy censorship of information about hydroxychloroquine.

    CBS News’ Norah O’Donnel recently asked Gates about a Moderna vaccine trial in which many participants reported serious adverse reactions. Gates’ reply and mannerisms further clarify his position on vaccine damage.

    If you were to approach the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and tell him that thousands of innocent people were dying of bomb and drone strikes, the head of the US Military would absolutely tell you that collateral damage is just a cost of war. The developers of the bombs would also call the dead collateral damage, in the name of a greater good.

    That’s what Gates is doing here in this interview, he is downplaying the risks and brushing off anyone negatively impacted, in order to give the impression that the benefits of his business plan outweigh the potential harms.

    Norah O’Donnell: “After the second dose at least 80 percent of participants experienced a systemic side effect, ranging from severe chills to fevers. So, are these vaccines safe?”

    Bill Gates: “Well the, uh, the FDA, not being pressured, will look hard at that. The FDA is the gold standard of regulators, uh, and their current guidance on this, if they stick with that, is, is very, very appropriate. Uh, and, you know, they, it, and, the, the side effects were not super severe, that is it didn’t cause permanent health problems for the things, uh, you know, Moderna did have to go with the fairly high dose, and so, uh, you know, to get the antibodies, some of the other vaccines, uh, are going, able to go with lower doses to get, uh, responses that are, are pretty high, including the JMJ and the Phizer. So, there’s a lot of characteristics of these vaccines, uh, it’s great that we have multiple of them, uh, that are going out there…

    Norah O’Donnell: “You know the data better than I do, but Bill, the data that everybody with a high dose had a side effect.”

    Bill Gates: “Yeah, but some of that is not dramatic, where it’s just, you know super painful, but yes, they’re, we need to make sure there’s not severe side effects. The FDA, uh, I, I, I think will do a good job of that, uh despite the pressure.”

    Norah O’Donnell: “How many doses of the vaccine will we need?”

    Bill Gates: ‘None of the vaccines at this point appear like they’ll work with a single dose. That was the hope at the very beginning, uh, maybe one of them, particularly in the second generation will surprise us. We hope just two [doses], although in the elderly sometimes, uh, it takes more, and so making sure we have lots of elderly people in the trial will give us that data.”

    Norah O’Donnell: “You’ve said more than 7 billion doses is what we’ll need…”

    Here is that clip:

    Even CBS pressures Bill Gates on the topic that almost everyone had side effects. He doesn’t seem to care.
    pic.twitter.com/2SiBmowJo3

    — An0maly (@LegendaryEnergy) July 26, 2020

    In short, Gates just passed the buck for vaccine safety to the FDA, diminished serious side effects as collateral damage in the process to invent this vaccine, and also planted the seed in public consciousness that multiple doses will be required. Let that sink in.

    A group calling themselves America’s Frontline Doctors held a press conference yesterday about the benefits of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19. The video of which immediately went viral, but was just as quickly removed from major social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Accounts have been banned over this. People’s personal Facebook accounts are being censored and posts removed for talking about this.

    It’s another circus.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    Zero Hedge notes:

    The press conference, which received over 14 million views before it was blacklisted and scrubbed by Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, featured members of America’s Frontline Doctors – a recently formed advocacy group which claims that American life has fallen casualty to a massive disinformation campaign” against Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) – a decades-old malaria drug used by India and several other countries as part of their front-line treatment of the novel coronavirus, yet which has shown mixed efficacy in studies.

    This type of immediate, hall-monitor style of content removal is similar to the recent censoring of the Plandemic film, London Real’s interview with David Icke, the video of doctors calling for an end to the lockdown, and so many more.

    Information about hydroxychloroquine as a cure for Covid-19 is being heavily censored. This is true. Whether you would choose the treatment for yourself or not, your ability to see both sides of the issue is being restricted.

    READ: Former CBS Journalist Sharyl Attkisson Calls Out YouTube for Censoring Factual Info About Hydroxychloroquine

    (function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

    Respected journalist Sharyl Attkisson, host of Full Measure, recently called out YouTube for censorship of this issue, explaining the controversy here:

    She follows through with the critical message about our ability as free people to access information in order to preserve informed consent.

    “When self-appointed fact-checkers intervene to try to stop people from accessing certain information, or to bully and controversialize those who report and read facts that are off the narrative powerful interests are trying to forward, it should be concerning to all.” – Sharyl Attkisson

    Indeed it should be.

    Whatever your position on this issue is, whether you feel that there is a conspiracy to prevent people from accessing hydroxychloroquine, or if you feel that talking about its potential benefits amounts to public endangerment, the bigger issue here is censorship. Communist Chinese style digital censorship. We’ve been warning of this for a long time, but for most, it’s a total shock to see this happening with such severity here in the United States.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • We’re not accustomed to living with censorship so overt and immediate. As a nation, we’ve always held the belief that freedom of speech was one of our most precious values, so this type of control is startling. People are finally beginning to recognize our rapid acceleration into a brave new controlled society. It will be authoritarian, and all debate will be outlawed.

    So, for the record, and in the interests of free speech and informed consent, here is a link to the most recent banned Covid-19 health video.

    In a bid to suppress protests against police brutality and racial injustice in Portland, Oregon, federal authorities have turned the city into a de facto police state in recent days, where heavily-armed security personnel roam the streets and unmarked vehicles snatch suspected protesters from city streets.

    Multiple reports from Portland indicate that the camouflaged federal officers from the U.S. Marshals Special Operation Group and the SWAT-like Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) have been escalating their tactics against residents in a manner that increasingly resembles some of the world’s most authoritarian governments.

    And to make matters worse, the federal deployment isn’t even wanted by local authorities.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    On Thursday night, Oregon Public Broadcasting reported that federal law enforcement have been driving around downtown Portland in unmarked minivans and grabbing protesters, without even offering an explanation of why they are being detained, and whisking them off.

    For lawyer Juan Chavez, the director of the Oregon Justice Resource Center, the tactics are tantamount to “abduction” and “kidnapping people off the streets” – methods of state repression that are more common in countries with notoriously wretched human rights standards like Colombia, Mexico, or the Philippines, where enforced disappearances of dissidents are the norm.

    “It’s like stop and frisk meets Guantanamo Bay,” Chavez told VICE News.

    In one such incident on July 15, protesters Conner O’Shea and Mark Pettibone were leaving a protest at the Multnomah County Justice Center and Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse when an unmarked minivan pulled up in front of them.

    “I see guys in camo,” O’Shea explained. “Four or five of them pop out, open the door and it was just like, ‘Oh ****. I don’t know who you are or what you want with us.’”

    While O’Shea said he managed to flee – after which he was pursued by a second minivan – Pettibone wasn’t so lucky.

    “I am basically tossed into the van,” Pettibone said. “And I had my beanie pulled over my face so I couldn’t see and they held my hands over my head.”

    Pettibone was understandably terrified and had no idea why he was arrested or detained before ultimately being released two hours later. However, during the ordeal he was essentially blindfolded while surrounded by armor-clad men who wore no markings and didn’t even identify themselves.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • As it turned out, Pettibone was brought to a federal courthouse before he was released.

    “It was basically a process of facing many walls and corners as they patted me down and took my picture and rummaged through my belongings,” he said. “One of them said, ‘This is a whole lot of nothing.’”

    While the two attend protests regularly, as is their right, they haven’t engaged in any property destruction, vandalism, or even shined laser pointers at officers.  However, Pettibone assumed that it was because he was profiled based on his wardrobe.

    “I just happened to be wearing black on a sidewalk in downtown Portland at the time,” Pettibone said. “And that apparently is grounds for detaining me.”

    The abductions of protesters off city streets have also been accompanied by indiscriminate violence being meted out against local residents. On Thursday night and Friday morning, federal officers in gas masks marched through downtown Portland and inundated the streets with tear gas. A federal judge had previously barred Portland police from using the chemical agent, reports New York Times.

    The violent federal deployment to Portland appears to be a result of President Donald Trump’s June 26 executive order to protect monuments across the country. However, the order also included provisions granting federal authorities like the Department of Homeland Security a six-month authorization to provide “personnel to assist with the protection of Federal monuments, memorials, statues, or property.”

    And on Thursday, acting Homeland Security secretary Chad Wolf arrived in Portland and essentially declared his intention to stamp out what he described as a “violent mob” of anarchists enabled by a weak local response.

    Local elected officials have denounced the aggressive federal intervention in Portland.

    Mayor Ted Wheeler, who has pleaded for calm since protests broke out following the May 25 killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, has blasted the deployment as totally “irresponsible.”

    “We do not need or want their help,” Wheeler earlier this week. “The best thing they can do is stay inside their building, or leave Portland altogether.”

    Meanwhile, Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese decried what he called a “significant setback” dealt by federal authorities to attempts to calm tensions between the community and the police.

    Most forcefully, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has accused Trump of essentially starting a war on the streets of Portland in a cynical move to win votes in neighboring states for the November presidential election – an approach she was sure of following her talk with the acting DHS head.

    “This political theater from President Trump has nothing to do with public safety,” Gov. Brown said in a Thursday tweet thread. “The president is failing to lead this nation. Now he is deploying federal officers to patrol the streets of Portland in a blatant abuse of power by the federal government.”

    “I told Acting Secretary Wolf that the federal government should remove all federal officers from our streets,” she added. “His response showed me he is on a mission to provoke confrontation for political purposes. He is putting both Oregonians and local law enforcement officers in harm’s way.”

    “Trump is looking for a confrontation in Oregon in the hopes of winning political points in Ohio or Iowa.”

    Let’s be honest with ourselves for a bit. Why are we really wearing face masks?

    In a recently released video, banned and censored David Icke breaks down the face mask phenomenon, comparing it to a religion, which is a belief system requiring blind faith. But people are wearing these everywhere. Are they all believers?

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    Icke articulates the three real reasons why people are wearing these face coverings.

    “The first could be that you are a statist. You believe that state representatives, government officials, know more about reality than you do. You trust them to tell you what to do. You accept their claim that they have special knowledge and have your best interests, and those of your fellow citizens at heart. You gave them your authority to control your life, and the lives of everyone else.”

    ‘The second reason, one shared by many statists and anarchists alike, is that you are forced to do as you are told. With a monopoly on the use of force, the State is the only body in society that can initiate force and get away with it. While nearly everyone in the UK would say it is morally indefensible to use physical force to make someone do whatever you tell them, it is surprising how many think it’s OK for a tiny group in Westminster to use physical force, or the threat of it, to control millions. Cognitive dissonance exemplified. None-the-less it is what it is. If you need to take the bus or the train to work, you are now forced to wear a face mask. Not because you believe there’s any point in it, but because you won’t be able to get to work and feed your family otherwise.”

    So, if we are honest with ourselves, we will wear a face mask on public transport for two reasons. We are either happy to accept that special people we’ve never met have sole authority to tell us what to do, as a slave owner would command his slave. Or we are scared that they will use force to punish or harm us if we don’t comply. We call this a free and open, democratic state.”

    “The final reason you might elect to wear a face mask is that you are convinced by the scientific evidence. You believe that donning a cheap or homemade face mask will protect you and others from a disease which you have a 0.4-5% chance of contracting and a 99.94% chance of surviving.”

    So, the reason that people are wearing face masks is the reason that a few control the world. They either A, believe what they’re told without question. The great majority. Or the they fear the consequences of not conforming to what they have perceived as a waste of time and complete nonsense, or even gone as far as to perceive it for what it is, as a psychological operation against the human psyche.”

    Now that we are being honest, are you catching on to where this is all going? If the state can mandate a person to cover their face under threat of being shut out of work or even grocery shopping, what’s next?

    The debate about opening schools in the fall is heating up, and sadly, it has already become a partisan issue. Liberals have taken the stance that it is not safe to re-open schools, while blasting conservatives who seem to really want schools to reopen.

    Whatever side you’re on in this conversation, if schools do re-open, kids will be subjected to an insane regiment of new distancing and safety measures. In fact, it won’t look like school much at all, but more like a behavioral re-education camp.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    Fullerton School District near Anaheim California recently produced a promotional video for parents, demonstrating what the ‘new normal’ will look like for school kids. And while this is, of course, just one school district, still images from the production offer a fair glimpse of what it would take to reopen schools during a pandemic.

    The bus ride:

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • (function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

    Not surprisingly, many parents are having a hard time with this, and comments to these images on FB give you a solid idea of how uncomfortable all of this makes many people.

    “This will take half of the school day.”

    “Just rediculous. It will take hours to get to school.”

    “No way!”

    Some parents applaud the measures in the name of safety, but you can’t argue that measures like these will be insanely difficult to enforce while also completely removing the social aspect, the fun part, of school.

    Entering school:

    If you have children, you already know how difficult this year has been on them. They’ve been subjected to a form of solitary confinement, and sending them to a medically regimented school will only add to the trauma.

    As writer Julian Rose notes:

    “While the situation is slowly changing, the underlying psychology of ‘obedience to the rules’ is not.

    This obedience has been taken to a new low as many schools and kindergartens have tried to apply the social distancing regulation to young school children. This has taken the form of chalking out two metre spaced apart circles or squares on the classroom and playground floor and ordering children to stay in them.

    Young children have been told to sit or stand alone in what amount to individually tailored exclusion zones and psychological prisons. Children, medical advisers say, who are not even at any risk from what is called CV-19.” ~Julian Rose

    Not sure what that imaging device is, but new rules and regulations will require frequent temperature checks, and continuous collection of data on each student.

    Lunch and snack time:

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • Most people forget just how malleable human beings are. We’re really just moldable little automatons, and subjecting children to this type of rigorous behavior control and monitoring will have lasting effects on the psyche of a whole generation of kids. The worst part is that it conditions them to be obedient and uncritical. They are learning to follow patterns and signs and orders all day long.

    I gotta go to the bathroom:

    Whatever your take on this situation, whether you believe the virus is dangerous enough to warrant this kind of behavioral management of the individual or not, demanding this level of obedience from children unnatural and psychologically dangerous.

    There’s just over 100 days till another exceptionally contentious and inflammatory U.S. Presidential election, and big tech has joined forces with mainstream media to control the narrative by hook or by crook.

    The hook is the non-stop sensationalist Trump bashing (I’m not a Trump fan, but it’s clear that the MSM has an agenda against him) over every word, tweet, or move he makes.

    The crook is the increasing censorship, shadow-banning, demonetization and cancelling of any voices who don’t toe the mainline narrative.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    If we were being honest, we’d call this election meddling, but we don’t seem to value honesty any longer in this culture. Never-the-less, you can make a case that these corporations and media companies are actively seeking to influence the November election, because they are.

    But election meddling is something the U.S. is especially good at. Specifically the CIA, that is.

    Foreign electoral intervention by the U.S. is just another tool of the empire in its work to dominate the globe. Perhaps the most well-known example of this was the United States’ interference in Iranian elections in 1952. In this case the CIA supported opposition to Mohammad Mosaddegh, who was regarded as a champion of democracy. He was overthrown and the Shah of Iran was reinstated, and the people of Iran have since toiled under an Islamic theocracy.

    The CIA has the power, the autonomy, the resources and the reach to interfere in geo-politics, and does so with zero accountability and with zero chance of the U.S. public questioning their influence. It is the head of the Deep State.

    The CIA operates with impunity, and if you had any doubt, here’s a legendary clip of former CIA director R. James ‘Jim’ Woolsey (CIA Director 1993-95) giving Fox News host Laura Ingraham a sly little wink, nod and evil laugh when she asks him about the CIA’s role in global election meddling. Woolsey thinks it’s cute and funny, because he knows that no one on the planet can hold the CIA accountable, and sadly, Ingraham just giggles by his response, as does the Fox crew behind the camera. It’s a big joke to everyone.

    Ingraham: “We don’t do that now, though, we don’t mess around in other people’s elections Jim?”

    Woolsey: Weeeeeeel, mmm, nom, nom, num, num, num. (Big smile) Only for a very good cause.

    Ingraham: “Let’s do a Vine video on this, former CIA Director…’

    Woolsey: “Only for a very good cause, in the interests of democracy.”

    Igraham: “Thanks for being here.”

    So, as the vitriol intensifies over the coming election, and both sides start calling the other out for election meddling, let’s not forget who the real, historical meddlers in Washington are.

    We humans tend to get lost in the moment, forgetting about the events that brought us to the present, and neglecting to consider what impact the present night have on the future.

    I see this happening now with Covid-19.

    Here we are being team players in some weird game, going about with masks on, splashing hand sanitizer all over the place, and shutting down the economy, all the while hoping most to satiate those twin fears of death and rejection by the tribe.

    Whatever pandemic narrative you subscribe to, all of the busyness about it serves to address only the present concerns of safety and conformity. All of the effort that went into creating our communities has been forgotten, and any concern over long-term impacts are dismissed. It’s how we’re wired. All trees, no forest.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    Let’s look at the forest for a minute.

    Lately I’ve been asking a lot of people how they’re doing. Not good.

    The vibe out there is dense. Confusion is cleaving a wedge between friends, families, and communities. Whatever camp you’re in, the wagons are being circled and the guns are coming out. People are hardening, and while we may tell ourselves it’s because the other camp is so inherently intolerable, what’s really happening is a catastrophic breakdown in human communication.

    Author Gary Z McGee considers the long view of such a breakdown, using cancer as a metaphor.

    “Cancer begins with a group of cells that fail to communicate with the conscious signal of the host. These cells become competitive instead of cooperative. When competition become primary and cooperation secondary, then we know we have failed as a species. ” ~ Gary Z McGee

    I think by now a lot of us have come to realize that communication via social media is perilous. I mean, Twitter, for crying out loud, might be the worst thing that ever happened to civil adulthood. The platforms are literally scientifically engineered to use negativity as the starting point for a dopamine feedback loop.

    Now add a lockdown to such a colossal breakdown, plus social-distancing, plus face masks, and it’s like we’ve reinvented the cold war, scaling it down to work for interpersonal relationships.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • There’s just no genuine way to connect with one another. All we have to go on is the media telling us what’s supposedly going on with our neighbors, but that’s mostly bullshit.

    It’s tough to measure precisely, but scientist figure that between 60 to 90% of human communication is non-verbal. This means that the bulk of communication is body language, which includes facial expressions.

    They say the eyes have it, but without seeing the face, the signal loss is too much. This is why talking to someone who’s wearing sunglasses is totally normal, but trying to understand them in just a Covid mask is disorienting.

    You see, words and speech are inventions of the logical mind, which needs a way of relaying experience to others. It works to a degree, but if you’ve ever been fortunate enough to go for a ride on a heroic dose of magic mushrooms and tried to explain it to someone, you know how inadequate and debilitating language really is.

    As an empathic person, I’m finding it very challenging to navigate this whole mask thing. I’m a tough SOB, too, by the way, but I feel lost and confused in this masked world. Kind of like a bumble bee buzzing around town with no antennae, trying to make sense of it all with what I’ve got left, but I can’t even rely on the power of a smile to make my way.

    “Empathy is the ability to ‘feel with’ another person, to identity with them and sense what they’re experiencing. It’s sometimes seen as the ability to ‘read’ other people’s emotions, or the ability to imagine what they’re feeling, by ‘putting yourself in their shoes.’ In other words, empathy is seen as a cognitive ability, along the same lines as the ability to imagine future scenarios or to solve problems based on previous experience. But in my view, empathy is more than this. It’s the ability to make a psychic and emotional connection with another person, to actually enter into their mind-space. When we experience real empathy or compassion, our identity actually merges with another person’s. The separateness between you and the other person fades away. Your ‘self-boundary’ melts away, so that in a sense – or to an extent – you become them.” ~Steve Taylor Ph.D

    We’re all empathic to a degree (yes, even all you psychopaths out there), but some of us are more in tune with this capacity than others. Empaths are a kind of glue that hold civilization together. Our curiosity in others is the emotional circuitry of this neurotic culture.

    “Curiosity expands our empathy when we talk to people outside our usual social circle, encountering lives and worldviews very different from our own. Curiosity is good for us too: Happiness guru Martin Seligman identifies it as a key character strength that can enhance life satisfaction. And it is a useful cure for the chronic loneliness afflicting around one in three Americans… Cultivating curiosity requires more than having a brief chat about the weather. Crucially, it tries to understand the world inside the head of the other person.” ~Roman Krznaric

    And we really need empaths around, because empathy serves a balancing force in our society, countering the rampant psychopathy that is only emboldened by the mask and the social distance. Plus, putting on a mask changes your relation not just with the world, but with yourself. You already know this to be true, just think about how much we all love Halloween.

    Masks let us masquerade as something or someone we are not. Empathy is associated with authenticity and vulnerability. Psychopaths, however, feel at home behind a mask, because psychopathy hates responsibility. The Covid measures serve to put more and more distance between a person and the consequences of their behavior.

    At a time when civil society is breaking down and fracturing along lines of race, class, religion and nationality, the presence of the empath is greatly needed. As an example of our power, Roman Krznaric, author of Empathy: Why It Matters, and How to Get It, recounts how empathy brought a Ku Klux Klansmen to leave the Klan.

    Krznaric writes:

    We all have assumptions about others and use collective labels—e.g., “Muslim fundamentalist,” “welfare mom”—that prevent us from appeciating their individuality. Highly empathic people challenge their own preconceptions and prejudices by searching for what they share with people rather than what divides them. An episode from the history of US race relations illustrates how this can happen.

    Claiborne Paul Ellis was born into a poor white family in Durham, North Carolina, in 1927. Finding it hard to make ends meet working in a garage and believing African Americans were the cause of all his troubles, he followed his father’s footsteps and joined the Ku Klux Klan, eventually rising to the top position of Exalted Cyclops of his local KKK branch.

    In 1971 he was invited—as a prominent local citizen—to a 10-day community meeting to tackle racial tensions in schools, and was chosen to head a steering committee with Ann Atwater, a black activist he despised. But working with her exploded his prejudices about African Americans. He saw that she shared the same problems of poverty as his own. “I was beginning to look at a black person, shake hands with him, and see him as a human being,” he recalled of his experience on the committee. “It was almost like bein’ born again.” On the final night of the meeting, he stood in front of a thousand people and tore up his Klan membership card.

    Ellis later became a labor organiser for a union whose membership was 70 percent African American. He and Ann remained friends for the rest of their lives. There may be no better example of the power of empathy to overcome hatred and change our minds.

    So, in this brave new normal, as we scramble for safety and conformity in the present moment, it might be wise to consider the long term implications of all the measures we are taking, and also acknowledge the positive impact that true, deep, human communication plays in creating a society worth living in.

    And for all you empaths out there struggling to feel your way around this brave new world, I feel you.

    Given the current crisis where the issue of racism is violently coming to the surface, I thought it would be insightful to ask one of my elders to share his perspective of being a black man in America.

    In this podcast I’m joined by a friend, and someone worthy of the title of elder, Vasil Abed.

    The conversation gets pretty deep into some things that people don’t typically bring up, but through the darkness of it all, he shares some incredibly valuable wisdom about what our world could look like, and what it really means to be a man today.

    Thanks for tuning in, and I hope you find something valuable in this conversation from the heart. Peace.

    Of all the depressing sights witnessed during the insane process of Covid home imprisonment, stupid social distancing and mask madness, the regimentation of children into predesignated playground /classroom ‘chalked-off zones’ is the one I find the most blood chilling.

    There are a number of factors about this Covid-19 event that stand-out. Firstly, that it is an entirely fake event. Secondly, that it is utterly manipulative . And thirdly, that it reflects an essentially anti-life agenda using fear as its predominant tool of repression.

    That may seem like a pretty brutal assessment of CV-19, but one cannot go on to speak about the way children have become a sacrificial element in this nightmarish agenda without first revealing the sheer manipulative audacity of the entire Covid master plan.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • While the situation is slowly changing, the underlying psychology of ‘obedience to the rules’ is not.

    This obedience has been taken to a new low as many schools and kindergartens have tried to apply the social distancing regulation to young school children. This has taken the form of chalking out two metre spaced apart circles or squares on the classroom and playground floor and ordering children to stay in them.

    Young children have been told to sit or stand alone in what amount to individually tailored exclusion zones and psychological prisons. Children, medical advisers say, who are not even at any risk from what is called CV-19.

    Nevertheless, there they are, sitting with sad faces as the politically correct mask clad teacher gives them their daily school instructions. The misery on the faces of these children deeply expresses the sense of horror surrounding the entire operation. A child instantly recognises a lie and exhibits the appropriate reaction.

    Under what kind of extreme conditions might such a regulation be considered supportive of the health and welfare of children? I can think of no situation, however potentially serious, in which innocent young boys and girls should be treated with such sickening disdain and lack of humanity. To do it even when there is no valid case for taking such a step, is truly shocking to behold and should be categorized as a criminal action.

    At the beginning and end of the school day, parents must ‘deliver’ their child through the school gate or door – keeping distance – with the teacher not being allowed to touch the child. Such are the instructions coming down from some perverted ‘leaders’ at the World Health Organisation – and then blindly followed by government officials, teachers and parents. It is ‘sanitary preparation’ for life in the sterile ‘smart cities’ that are just around the corner, if the same people retain control over the daily workings of this world.

    The second Covid nightmare scenario to have been imposed on school children, and parents, is ‘e-education’. Sticking children behind computers for hours on end is never recommended, for obvious health reasons. But that is what is called-for in ‘e-education’, in which parents are also forced to be complicit by being instructed to take over the role of teacher ‘in the home’.

    The tools of this trade comprise pre-designated ‘e’ tech software programmes that are essentially agents of stereotype mind control. To grow up healthy, a child needs the pleasurable interaction with other children – not sitting alone behind a flickering screen having their heads loaded with state education programming. What a shockingly heartless way to conduct the learning process!

    Technology gives the illusion of providing a means to an end, and is often associated with acquiring ‘freedom’. More accurately, the acquisition of more and more technology is a road to slavery. The technology traps its users into dependency on a virtual reality world, while the real world is ignored or categorized as boring. A sure receipt for impaired mental stability.

    What actually is going on here?

    It all starts with the education system itself. The verb ‘to educate’ comes from the Latin ‘e-ducare’ meaning ‘to lead out from’. Now ‘to lead out from’ is very different than ‘to push into’, which is the format imposed by formal education having the ambition to brainwash the pupil into accepting ‘verbatim’ a whole lot of facts about that which is deemed necessary in order to eventually get a job and make money.

    Contrast this with the idea of ‘leading out from’. Something which exists in all children is creative potential – in bucket loads. Drawing this creativity out – and thereby opening up the genius which lies at the heart of all innocent hearts and minds – is the true role of the teacher. One way closes down the life force and the other opens it up.

    But if you do decide to go with ‘e-ducare’ you are not going to find it in the formal school programmes that have been designed and set under government supervision with the purpose of ensuring the next generation conform to exactly the same patters of thinking, behaving and conforming as the current and previous ones.

    Or, to put it more bluntly, to ensure that people remain slaves to ‘the system’ whose controller’s ambition is to keep as many as possible in a state of hypnosis, unable to use their abilities for anything other than furthering the various facets of a dying status quo.

    There are some exceptions to this standard dumbing down orthodoxy. For example, Rudolph Steiner’s anthroposophic teaching method for primary and secondary school ages, and Maria Montessori’s creative behavioural encouragement in young children. There are other experimental schools in existence, as well as the possibilities of teaching from home, but that still has to conform to the state programme.

    The sight of depressed children being manipulated to sit quietly in their chalked out separate boxes for fear of infringing ‘the law’ would never be possible if our education system as a whole didn’t already start from this same position of fundamental suppression of the life force. A suppression resulting from its abject failure to follow the guidelines implicit in the origins of its name.

    Children are the bright lights of pure spirit. Behind their deep and beautiful eyes lies a whole new future for the human race. A true teacher recognises the presence of a stream of vivid imagination and helps it emerge; nurturing its formation into evolving channels of creative/artistic expression.

    This is a vocation of the highest merit. Like handling an infinitely precious gem stone. And because of what this gem might reveal, one must be humble enough to realise one is ultimately, during the ongoing development of this relationship, likely to land-up as the pupil.

    In building the New Society that must emerge out of the debris of this calamitous civilisation, the way we treat children will emerge as a critical factor in setting the standard for all that follows.

    There is a child at the centre of every one of us; if one is in doubt about the way to treat it, one is in doubt about one’s purpose for living.

    Let’s just for a moment suspend all disbelief in the official Covid-19 narrative. Let’s set aside questions about mortality rates, death certificate designations, controversy over treatments and testing procedures, and politics.

    Instead, I want to zoom out a bit and do some traveling back and forth in time in order to bring your attention to the progression of something critically important to all free human beings on this planet.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    There’s a great divergence taking place, dividing our country and perhaps the entire world. To most, this was all unexpected. A big surprise. To others, this has been a long time coming, but through the fog of confusion around us, one thing is crystal clear to those of us who’ve been watching, warning and waiting for a long time: we are on a stepping stone toward a very dystopian future where personal sovereignty and privacy will become historical ideas unfitting for such a brave new world.

    I am not a religious man, but I do come from a Christian culture, and of particular note today is a chapter in the Bible that strikes abject fear into the hearts of believers. Revelation 13, particularly the following sentence which refers to The Beast coming out of the earth:

    “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.” ~Revelation 13

    For nearly two-thousand years, believers have been looking for signs of this prophecy coming to fruition, and the term ‘The Mark of the Beast,’ is now firmly entrenched in our cultural lexicon. Kanye West used it today in reference to a Covid vaccine. Louis Farrakhan was preaching about it over a decade ago. So called conspiracy theorists have for decades been looking at institutional documents and central planning agendas, warning that a global government was being organized to conquer the planet and enslave us all with the boot of technology.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • It has gained social capital for its implied meaning that someday free people will be subjected to an authoritarian control system which treats human beings like livestock to be ID’d, tracked, traced, controlled, milked and slaughtered when the time is right.

    And shouldn’t an idea like this stoke fear in the hearts of the free and the independent? After all, it implies an end to free will and an end to self-determination. It implies total, hopeless, global slavery.

    Now here we are today. Covid face masks.

    Someone recently said to me that the masks are the mark of the beast in larval form, and this, to me, seems a fair metaphor. A larva is the juvenile form that many animals and insects take before maturing into an adult. Often, the appearance of an animal in larval form is quite different from the mature animal.

    In a matter of a few short months we we’ve gone from business-as-usual to cover up your face or you can’t buy groceries. We don’t exactly understand or agree on the precise nature of the threat, but in the blink of an eye we’ve gone from masks being suggested, to masks being recommended, to masks being mandated in some locales, to masks being mandated in all locales, and with New Jersey leading the way, masks are now being mandated outdoors in public spaces, all of this enforceable by law (which is punishable by fines and the risk of arrest), and by exclusion from the economy.

    All the while, we are watching the experts on television nonchalantly inform us that our future  participation in the economy and in society at large will be dependent on our acquiescence to whatever new rules and mandates they throw at us. That we will be surveilled, monitored, vaccinated, and contact traced everywhere we go, and that in order to buy or sell, worship, go to school or gather, we will have to show proof of submission to the system’s demands.

    In 2014, Australian writer Steven Tritton warned us that we had already crossed the Rubicon into this future, but that in order to go all the way we needed only the right crisis to catalyze public opinion in favor of such measures.

    “Perhaps in the midst of such turmoil or following a worldwide economic meltdown, comes a momentous shift to a cashless society with an embedded device compulsory for every individual to participate in the new global financial order. However, the newly hatched revolutionary system will be one that ensnares humanity in a totalitarian global surveillance society unlike the modern world has ever seen given such advanced technology in place. We have already crossed the Rubicon.” ~Steven Tritton in 2014

    (function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

    In 2012 we published an article quoting the father of a San Antonio high school girl who was objecting to the school’s requirement that all students wear RFID (radio frequency identification) badges to track student’s whereabouts in an effort to reduce tardiness and truancy. He called the badges, ‘the mark of the beast,’ and they certainly were an ample introduction to the emergent technology that will become what many fear is the real mark.

    But people aren’t stupid. They’re frightful, but not stupid. So, for the beast to make inroads on the effort to track and trace everyone, the progression needs to be incremental, touching on key points of fear along the way, always increasing the intensity of the crisis so as to allow the proverbial frog in the pot to boil before he becomes aware of his imminent doom. In order for people to accept compulsory measures like these they have to be deceived into believing that their life depends on it.

    People don’t seem to fully comprehend what is being given away in this desperate hour, but without a doubt, they will feel it, and long to have it back, in the coming dystopian future.

    My sense is that we are losing something exclusively human. That the masks actually alter the way we view each other, and that they shift our perception of others away from trust. Where once we saw smiles and community, now we see furrowed brows, concern and hazard. I feel we are jumping headlong into the dark abyss of fear, giving power and precedence to the inner authoritarian, and that as we forfeit bits of self integrity to go along to get along, we become envious and agitated with those who wish not to comply.

    “I contend that there is something hugely meaningful about humanity, something virtual reality can never match, something artificial intelligence can never be programmed with. Words such as conscience, compassion, warmth, kindness, generosity, spontaneity, imagination, inspiration and creativity, give some hint as to what this something might be.” ~Nigel Kerner

    So for today, it’s required masks. Tomorrow will see legally mandated contact tracing apps on your phone. Then required immunity certificates and special health passports. Then on to some more permanent form of traceable, wearable tech like a tattoo or an implant.

    Call it what you want, but if you want to feed your family today, you’d better mask up. And if you are reading this beyond 2020, I hope that time has proven me wrong and that we have somehow collectively managed to squash this wicked bug before it evolves into its full form.

    When I look at people’s faces covered in masks, I try to discern from their eyes alone what they are feeling. And it’s tough.

    But, it’s tough not because you can’t see their whole faces, it’s tough because people everywhere are hiding their whole selves behind their egoic masks of confidence, surety, and stoicism. They are hiding their true feelings, their pain and their suffering from the world.

    We are all experiencing unprecedented stress, loneliness, anxiety, worry, and uncertainty right now. And in this climate, it’s very easy for the mind to take you in to fear. Fear of what’s happening now, and fear of what is to come.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    But these feelings aren’t the whole story. They don’t represent the deepest truths about our lives.

    The fear is a finger pointing at the moon. Pointing to something so big that we can’t see it right in front of our eyes. Yet here there is a truth much greater and far more powerful than all the fear in the world combined. And when you connect to this truth, your power and your smile return.

    Speaking in a recent online conference, revered Ayahuasquero, Taita Juanito shares a powerful message for all people who are experiencing these challenges right now. It’s a message that gets lost in the clutter and flash of an info-drenched and drama-craving world, but it is so simple and pure, that when you open your heart to it, it cuts right through everything else.

    I hope you are doing well, but if you’re struggling right now, give some consideration to Taita Juanito’s words here, and please share them with those you know who are also in need of such a reminder.

    The following transcript was taken from an interpreter to Taita Juanito in a recent presentation by Canta Con Amor 2020:

    “All people that are going through difficulties, we send you many blessings, because you are our family. All of us are connected. Now, in this time it is different for all of us. Some of us have practices and medicines, and this is good. Continue practicing your spiritual path, and you can consult plants at home. But another part is that some of us don’t have spiritual practices. We’re in sadness. There’s absence in their life, in their heart. And for all of you experiencing this absence in your heart, please understand  that you have never been alone. Always, there is something greater, bigger, deeper, which is the Great Spirit. You have to connect more. You, who are experiencing absence, open your heart.

    Some say that you need faith. We say you need to find balance in this time, because for those that have a spiritual path and for those that don’t, there is a lesson for both. First, never feel alone, because when you close your eyes and you feel the vibration of nature, the Spirits of nature, and the Great Creator, there, automatically you’re not alone. It’s a limiting belief that is taking you there.

    For you, we pray for you, and you should pray as well, from your heart. And if you have plants, do plant baths. Share this time with your family, your children, your friends, because all this is teaching us community. We run around too frequently, searching for money, or things that we may need or want, but then we forget to live life. So now you have this chance. Live life. Live intensely, asking the Creator and nature.

    The plants have always been here when you place a good intention to a bath or steam bath with plants, or you have a visionary plant, ask of the plant, and the plant will always show you the door. This time is a gift. Many people might see it different, but when we go to the deepest aspect, there’s an ecstasy, a vibration of energy, of light.

    A few days ago I drank medicine and I was asking, and what I saw was a world full of vibration, full of colors, and we were observing it, and I was asking why are you showing me this? And it said to me, ‘you, humanity have to be here, in this world of vibration with nature.’

    It’s always been her for you. The spirits have always been here. You might call them Guardians, Angels, or Guides, but they have always been here. We have to ask from them, ask your Guardian, ask that energy of Spirits, the Angels, to come and change your memory through a prayer, through a fast, to strengthen you.

    All this fear, this absence that I feel, it is only a limiting belief which is coming, and all things which come to your life, they are for something. They will bring you strength, they will bring you study. What is this experience teaching you? What does it want to say to you? And there we connect with the art of life, the art of feeling.

    This is why the Creator gave us our senses, eyes, mouth, nose, ears, skin. Activate it. Activate the listening. It’s important to listen to the heart and to listen to all the energy of the Spirits.”

    Just prior to the global Coronavirus outbreak, serious signs of an emerging financial crisis began to emerge. As people were beginning to realize that yet another central bank engineered ‘bust’ was coming down on us, we were thrown into lockdown, shuttering millions of businesses and sending millions of people to the unemployment line.

    Now, a few months later, we are starting to realize just how deep the economic fallout will be, and Americans are scrambling to adjust their lifestyles to a totally new world order. At the top of the food chain, though, is government. City, county, state and federal.

    In the midst of such a bizarre and frightful socioeconomic crisis, the tax man is hurting too. Tax revenues at all levels of government have plummeted like never before, and the pain is especially acute for city budgets who’ve seen sales tax revenue nosedive. While the American citizenry is seeing a drastic drop in income, so is Uncle Sam and all of his bureaucratic agencies.

    Take a look at some of the numbers.

    “CBPP estimates that state budget shortfalls will ultimately reach almost 10 percent in the current fiscal year (which ends on June 30 in most states) and about 25 percent in fiscal year 2021 based on recent economic projections.

    • Kansas estimates an $827 million drop in revenues.

    • Arizona expects revenues to drop by $1.4 billon.

    • Arkansas expects $353 million less in revenue, with $193 million due to the income tax filing extension to July 15 and the remainder due to lower collections.

    • California expects revenues to decline by $32 billion in 2021 alone, according to the Department of Finance. The revenue declines in fiscal years 2020 and 2021, combined with COVID-19 costs and increased need for other state services, will result in a deficit equal to 37 percent of the general fund budget — more than three and half times the balance in the state’s substantial rainy day fund.

    • New York’s tax revenues will fall by $12 billion in 2021 and by $16 billion in 2022, according to the state’s Division of Budget.

    • Colorado’s revenues could drop by as much as $3.2 billion in 2021 and $2.4 billion in 2022, according to the Legislative Council.” [Source]

    For states like Texas, Alaska and New Mexico which depend on oil revenue to balance their budgets, the financial hit will be a double whammy.

    “Alaska is projecting an $815 million decline in revenues in the coming fiscal year, and New Mexico could see a $1.5 to $2 billion drop.” [Source]

    While Americans clamor to figure out how to make ends meet in their own households, so too is government trying to figure out how to balance budgets, and the reality is that once these emergency accounting measures really begin to sink in, Americans aren’t going to like it one bit.

    The question for mayors and governors will be, ‘how much money can we extract from the people without causing extreme poverty and triggering widespread revolt?’

    The answer, of course, is taxes. Primarily property taxes, because that’s the one thing people are still paying while locked down at home and unable to shop.

    Take note:

    “”There is no choice but to have a significant increase in property taxes,” he said. “Measured in a percent, it’s going to be on the order of more than 20 percent to be sure.” [Source]

    • Dallas, TX is looking at a proposed 8% increase in property taxes, and is having to work a loophole that allows them to ignore state law which would prevent them from raising taxes more than 3.5%. [Source]
    • Expecting a $700 million shortfall, Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot has said that a property tax increase is ‘on the table.’ [Source]
    • California is considering a partial reversal of Proposition 13, which would allow government to assess commercial properties differently, creating an increase in property tax revenue without actually increasing the property tax rate. [Source]
    • Other initiatives include “Arizona, where taxes would be raised on incomes above $250,000 to boost teacher salaries; Colorado, which is targeting corporations for at least $151 million in taxes to fund out-of-school learning; and North Carolina, which would issue bonds worth $1.9 billion in part to pay for school capital improvements.” [Source]
    • New York is pitching the idea of tax increases for wealthier people. [Source]
    • New Jersey is expected to see an unknown increase in taxes as the governor moves to borrow billions of dollars to cover budget gaps. [Source]
    • CNBC reports that many states across the nation will be looking at tax increases in many areas, including corporate income taxes, online purchases, excise and sales taxes, property taxes, and gross receipts taxes. [Source]

    As we move forward in this deepening crisis, we shall see how all of this works out, but for to be sure, Mr. and Mrs. America, even though you didn’t create the fraud in the financial system, and even though you were forced to close down your business, you will now be used as tax cattle to pay for this giant fustercluck.

    Although most people didn’t know who George Floyd was, the mark he left on this planet is visible perfectly in the background, out of sight, before his tragic passing.

    “Big Floyd” was a rapper for decades, and he was featured on the tapes of world-renowned, documentary-inspiring legendary music icon DJ Screw. Here are a few of his songs.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • The thing is, there’s much more to Houston rap culture than meets the eye. Before the slowed down, sort of happy, chilled out vibe of DJ Screw, and the artists he featured such as Big Floyd, ESG, Lil Keke, and others, there was a more revolutionary scene in Houston.

    It started in the late 80’s and early 90’s: K-Rino, arguably the world’s most famous “conscious” rapper, founded the South Park Coalition. It was a group of artists that constantly featured themes of fighting against the system in their songs.

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

    Themes of constantly struggling to survive the epidemic of crooked police in Houston, struggling to survive and make enough money to have food and shelter, are conveyed through the clever and entertaining wordplay of the South Park Coalition. Most if not all of these SPC members were close to the Screwed Up Click, of the same set of neighborhoods on the southside of Houston, and by extension these musical revolutionaries were tied to Big Floyd.

    K Rino is a Houston based activist, considered by [1] even more well known Houston legends such as Z-Ro, to be the single greatest rapper of all time. These songs below are timeless, documenting a true history of revolutionary culture.

    George Floyd can be seen in this fairly recent video with over 6.5 million views by Z-Ro, and Scarface of the Geto Boys. He’s in the red Screwed up Click (SUC) shirt, the thumbnail of the video.

    Scarface, in the video with Floyd, was making songs about the CIA essentially running drugs and trying to poison the community, way back in 1990.

    He said exact names of conspirators poisoning America during the drug war with stunning accuracy. He name dropped Manuel Noriega, pointing out the former Panamanian dictator’s connection to former CIA leader George H.W. Bush.

    The Geto Boys were vital in showing people the conspiracy of the drug war, in one of Houston’s first successful rap albums. The record is laced with the very beneficial, anti-authoritarian notion that we should not be quick to trust the system. “City Under Siege” was also a local Houston tv show resembling “Cops,” and so their song exposing the system referenced that. The song is so legendary, anti-authoritarian sentiment from it was sampled [2] for Tupac Shakur’s first album, in the song “Violent.”

    In the same song, fellow Geto Boys member Willie D lays out information that few had access to at all back in 1990. Today, Willie D is a persistent activist in Houston, recently having attended protests from Houston, Texas, to Sacramento, California.

    Think about this: there are very few places on this entire planet left, where civilians are allowed to own guns and use them for protection.

    Texas is probably the most famous place on Earth for such an ability, and Houston is Texas’ largest city, as well as the 4th largest in the United States.

    Now this is critical: activism, trying to make the world a better place, does not work unless there is some element of “fun” in it.

    Without some form of satisfaction, fun, enjoyment, festivity, human connection or whatever it is, activism utterly fails. Often, there’s actually a deficit of these qualities, in an activist’s efforts trying to accomplish something, or spread some info.

    In other words, how many people do you know, who really know the truth and have some world-changing things to say, yet when they speak it falls on deaf ears because there is no element of fun, satisfaction, connection or entertainment in their effort to communicate knowledge?

    Activism one hundred percent fails in the absence of enjoyment, or something that really captures the attention and excitement of people who then become open to hearing new information.

    Back to George Floyd and the Houston rap scene, one can see why it exploded nationwide and then worldwide: the music is fun. All the songs paint a picture of people doing whatever they want, every day, living life to the fullest and never letting the system inhibit such fun.

    In the Houston rap scene, people drive customized, fun cars, with distinct rims and colors unique to the city. Much pride and enjoyment is derived from this. People used to make tens of thousands of dollars just selling their music on the streets.

    Those people also express a great appreciation for weed, and always have. Cannabis is still illegal in Texas, but we all know what direction the entire country is going.

    There are currently CBD-only shops all over Texas, and they just popped up. They look just like cannabis dispensaries, featuring pure, unadulterated buds that happen to have no THC, just medicinal CBD, unique to those strains. This is a massive step toward full legalization in Texas.

    What made it possible for California to legalize cannabis, or for many to do it anyway in Texas, regardless of a disgraceful, brutal history between the Houston police and residents of the city?

    What made it possible, was people disobeying. People smoking anyway made it to where weed could no longer remain illegal.

    The creation of a vibrant, active fabric of culture where many people smoke and have fun, was the very thing which enabled it to be legalized.

    This is activism, believe it or not. That which renders an unjust law useless, unenforceable, is the definition of a solution.

    One might not think that cannabis or Houston rap is very revolutionary or extraordinary, but they may lack the ability to objectively recognize what gets things done, and what doesn’t.

    George Floyd would go to the studio with DJ Screw and record back in the mid 90’s, until Screw sadly passed away in 2000. DJ Screw was a shining example of the revolutionary spirit.

    He sold tens of thousands [3], if not hundreds of thousands, of his unique tapes, straight out of his house and the trunk of his car in Houston.

    It is believed that he made over a million dollars, doing nothing but having fun, making his slowed down mixes of rap from all over America, selling his 300 + tapes to tens of thousands of people in person.

    If starting your own business is revolutionary, the epitome of solution oriented, paving a way for prosperity outside of the confines of wage slave society, well then DJ Screw is one who should never be forgotten.

    The legacy of Screw, and his even more hardcore revolutionary, Black Panther-like peers, well it can now be broadcast to the rest of the world, inadvertently, due to the tragic murder of George Floyd.

    The entire world needs culture like this: the culture of freely doing what people want, creating and sustaining positive independent business derived from true passion.

    (function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

    Now, hundreds of thousands of views are piling onto the videos of Big Floyd’s music with DJ Screw, and that means the entire world is learning about their legacies.

    They are legacies of living life to the fullest, disregarding laws which are unjust, and standing strong and fearless in the face of the Houston police who notoriously harass people.

    People don’t seem to grasp the fundamental importance of culture.

    The fabric of culture wherever you are, is probably the number one determining factor in your survival: that is, the survival of all things you enjoy, all that you believe in and practice, your protection from the constantly encroaching march of the police state.

    Make no mistake, people around the world can mind their own business, never try to rebel against anything or assert themselves, and without instigating anything, the police state will take from them the few abilities, rights, amenities, that they have: just because nobody is stopping them.

    That’s how the world works. If a population, for instance, in Australia will tolerate being restricted in regard to travel, forced medical procedures, or totalitarian surveillance on the highways to check for people texting and driving, well this is what will happen.

    For tolerating the smallest bit of disrespect from their government, those people will see their situation with freedom and prosperity worsen, and worsen, until their quality of life is completely unrecognizable from how it used to be.

    This is the fabric of culture: if nobody was rebellious, armed, creative, or passionate about independent business, that society would collapse under the weight of a threat constantly looming over all people, the government.

    You can check history and believe it, or don’t. The fact is, “freedom culture” is the antidote to a population being constantly bullied, controlled, and used. Look at the most blatantly totalitarian countries in the world, such as China or the Philippines, and you’ll see where we don’t want to end up.

    The polar, complete opposite of for instance, Chinese culture of never going against the government, is Houston rap culture. Those people have stood strong, spoken out about injustice, created and paved ways for the most enjoyable and satisfying positive money making plans one could possibly think of.

    If people across the world that are unfamiliar with the culture dig deeper, they’ll find things that are even more profoundly revolutionary, such as the early music of South Park Coalition rappers Dope E, K-Rino, Klondike Kat, and more.

    For instance in this song from 1991, Dope E comedically lambasts the media with a vitriolic and understandable attitude.

    In this song from 1992, K-Rino (Killa Rhymes Intellectually Nullifying Opponents) laid out what it means to survive in the dangerous era of the early 90’s, how the system is to blame for certain conditions, and what his response is to make things better.

    In these mid 90’s songs, Klondike Kat of the same group demonstrated pure artistry. He also belonged to the group Street Military, an earlier prototype of the revolutionary / street flavor of Houston.

    It just so happens that George Floyd, of Third Ward, Houston, Texas, knew a whole lot of these people and himself was raised in this culture.

    This documentary explored the history of Houston rap. It started off more gritty and revolutionary, and ended up more fun and enjoyment based: the two modalities do fuse well.

    Nothing revolutionary ever works without enjoyment, fun, morale, and all of these things people seek and feel good from.

    If anyone ever wants to change the world, they must put off good energy and offer something enjoyable and satisfying to those who might listen. One could easily make something contrived of course, simply injecting fun or enjoyment, festive vibes into something that is much more serious.

    However, when somebody has the right touch, the right way of doing things, an artist can capture the attention and interest of viewers and then successfully deliver a life-changing message.

    Without the element of fun, there can be no successful activism.

    A highly respected doctor and current Minnesota State Senator has been speaking out about his concern over the validity of Covid death certificates, and as a result, is now being investigated by the Board of Medical Practice in Minnesota.

  • (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • Scott Jensen, Republican Senator from District 47 in the Twin Cities of Minnesota has a long history of health service and in 2016 was the recipient of the Minnesota Family Physician of the Year Award.

    “The Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP) has selected Scott Jensen, M.D., of Watertown, MN, as the 2016 Family Physician of the Year. This award is presented annually to a family physician who represents the highest ideals of the specialty of family medicine, including caring, comprehensive medical service, community involvement and service as a role model…

    Dr. Jensen has been a practicing family physician for more than 32 years. In 2001, he opened Catalyst Medical Clinic in Watertown. He is praised for his tireless commitment to his patients and the community.” [Source]

    In a heart-felt facebook video post, Jensen expresses his concern over being targeted for essentially doing his job, which is looking at data and information and making informed choices based on his experience and wisdom. Apparently, however, his statements have enraged the cancel mobs, and an anonymous complaint was filed against him.

    What are his alleged crimes or malfeasances that could result in him losing his license, job and livelihood?

    Specifically, the investigation makes two allegations against him, both of them related to public statements about Covid-19.

    Firstly, he is being targeted for comparing numbers of Covid-19 cases to the typical number of flu cases that Minnesota has each year. Something which Jensen notes has been done numerous times by Tony Fauci and many other public health officials.

    Additionally, he has been speaking out about the issue of Covid death certificates, expressing concern that people who did not die of Covid are being counted as Covid deaths, a practice which falsely inflates mortality rates and irresponsibly contributes to the climate of fear around the disease.

    Jensen notes:

    “In terms of the death certificates, on April 3rd I got an email fro the Department of Health that said very clearly that we should report Covid-19 on death certificates if it is assumed to have caused  or contributed. Well, that’s not how we do death certificates. The official ICD-10 coding for April 1st, 2020 through September 30th, 2020, during the timeframe in question says this: If the provider documents suspected, possible, probable, or inconclusive Covid-19, do not assign. Use 07.1, which is Covid-19 disease. It says, assign a code explaining the reason  for the encounter, such as fever, or cough, or shortness of breath.

    I’ve got the Department of Health in Illinois, where one of the directors says that just because we put Covid-10 down on the death certificate as cause of death, that doesn’t mean that the patient died of Covid-19. She said that.” ~Dr. Scott Jensen

    By bringing attention to this matter, Jensen prompted the Department of Health to issue two subsequent clarifications, indicating that they wold not list non-confirmed cases as Covid-19. In other words, Jensen was not spreading misinformation about death certificates, he was in fact right to express concern, but never-the-less, he is being investigated and is at risk of losing his career.

    In Jensen’s recent video he goes on to quote statements by Fauci and other officials that are nearly identical to some of the things he is being investigated for, making the case that he is being targeted and singled out by someone.

    And that’s a big part of the issue here. In cancel culture, we never get to know who our accusers are. Anonymous statements can be made by anyone with or without a political agenda, and the result is typically devastating for good people.

    Across the world, censorship of information is taking a quantum leap forward, and we are fast approaching a reality where corporations and governments have the ability to instantly silence anyone who speaks up against the mainstream narrative and paradigm.

    Jensen closes out the video with a few important questions that all Americans should aske themselves.

    “Do we think it’s okay for physicians to certify death certificates that someone died of Covid-19 even if there was never a Covid-19 positive test obtained? Even if there was never a Covid-19 test done? Even if a Covid-19 test hadn’t even been considered? And maybe the worst even if, even if the family had no clue that the death certificate they received for their loved one was going to say Covid-19?” ~ Senator Scott Jensen

    If this can happen to an accomplished public servant as Senator Jensen, it can happen to anyone.

    There are around 45,000 black farmers in America, representing about 1.4 percent of the total population of U.S. farmers.

    According to data from a USDA 2012 census report, about 33,000 of these black farmers were principle operators, that is, the person on charge of the farm’s day-to-day operation. This means that only a very small portion of America’s farms are run by black farmers.

    In the pressing national situation, where Americans are demanding greater equality and compassion for the nation’s black population, nothing works to serve this goal better than empowering black people to become business owners, become self-sufficient, and to contribute to the healing and progress of our nation.

    Historically, even U.S. farm policies have been racist, creating a wide gap of opportunity where blacks and other minorities are unable to receive the same government resources, benefits and subsidies as white farmers.

    Writing for Hemp Industry Daily, Kristen Nichols comments on this:

    “Farming co-ops were once common across the U.S. as farmers pooled resources to acquire land and equipment. In the Black community, co-ops were a way out of sharecropping and tenant-farming agreements that left them mired in poverty.

    But throughout the 20th century, racist policies at the U.S. Department of Agriculture shut out minority-run cooperatives from accessing government assistance.

    Recent changes to USDA policies aim to address historic disadvantages for farmers left behind, but farmers of color haven’t caught up. Black farmers now make up less of the population than ever before in American history.But throughout the 20th century, racist policies at the U.S. Department of Agriculture shut out minority-run cooperatives from accessing government assistance.”

    While many are out protesting for Black Lives Matter, people like Angela Dawson are busy paving the way of opportunity for black owned business. Dawson is the founder of 40 Acre Co-Op, a forward-thinking Minnesota organization aimed at reversing the decline in black agriculture, and focusing on the hemp crop for its versatility and possibility.

    “Our mission here at 40 Acre Cooperative is to promote agricultural development, as well as economic equity for socially disadvantaged farmers. Because we know if all farmers had access to all the plentiful and rich agricultural resources available, we could solve many of today’s complex problems. All farmers gaining that access is what we’re here to do.

    Disadvantaged black farmers have been the backbone of the agricultural industry for centuries. In fact, they made significant contributions to American agriculture throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Now, black farmers are socially disadvantaged, making up less numbers by population now than ever before in American history.

    In 1920, there were 925,710 African American farmers. Today, there are 45,508. We can change that, together. We can make those numbers rise again – and we’re going to.

    Why?

    Because erasing Black farmers’ history is erasing an important era of American history.

    Because Black farmers who own land have decreased so dramatically over the past generation that not only have we lost valuable agricultural resources to feed the world, we’ve lost a generation of economic and environmental solutions.

    Because the land ownership and income disparities in America are a joke, and we’re not laughing anymore.” ~ 40 Acre Co-Op

    In a recent interview, Dawson explains why hemp is the perfect crop to help with this endeavor, and explains why cop-op farming is the perfect model to help regenerate the population of America’s black farmers.

    Hemp farming has a long and fascinating history here in the U.S. and it is even well-known that the Declaration of Independence is written on hemp paper. When hemp was outlawed in 1937 the economy shifted towards fossil fuels and oil-based synthetic materials, sidelining hemp almost completely.

    Now that the crop is again being hailed for its extraordinary versatility, and laws on growing hemp have relaxed a great deal, hemp farms are cropping up all across the nation, bringing forth a wide range of possible products and supplements to help move us away from our dependency on trees, fossil fuels, and pharmaceuticals.

    Efforts like these great news for America’s black and socially disadvantaged farmers, so if you’re looking for positive ways to empower black communities, please like and share this inspiring article.

    Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite and heiress who became a confidante of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was later accused of aiding the billionaire pedophile in trafficking children, has been arrested by the FBI. According to reports, she as arrested in Bedford, New Hampshire around 8:30 a.m. on charges she conspired with Epstein to sexually abuse and traffic children.

    Maxwell’s arrest comes just days before the anniversary of Epstein’s arrest which would later lead to the convicted pedophile’s extremely controversial suicide.

    As TFTP reported, sources inside the FBI reportedly confirmed last year that the bureau was investigating the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and several other unnamed persons suspected of helping multimillionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein recruit and exploit underage girls.

    Maxwell, who reportedly dated Epstein in the early 1990s before settling in to a close friendship with the millionaire, has been MIA since Epstein’s July 2019 arrest. Soon after, Epstein killed himself while awaiting trial in Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center.

    Maxwell has been accused in court filings of organizing a sex-trafficking ring that helped bring beautiful young girls to Epstein’s expansive Manhattan townhouse.

    Back in 2003, Epstein told a reporter with Vanity Fair that Maxwell was his “best friend.”

    Maxwell is the daughter of late British media magnate Robert Maxwell, who founded a publishing house and once owned a suit of tabloids, including the Daily Mirror.

    It emerged after Robert Maxwell’s mysterious death in 1991 that he had looted hundreds of millions of dollars from employee pension funds to prop up his crumbling business empire.

    The timing of Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest is noteworthy considering the fact that just days ago the Trump administration suspiciously fired the man who was leading the investigation into the child trafficking ring.

    Geoffrey Berman, the powerful US attorney for the Southern District of New York has been the lead investigator into the Jeffrey Epstein child sex trafficking case since before the billionaire’s suspicious suicide. However, this friend of President Donald Trump who contributed to his campaign, was surreptitiously removed from his post by Attorney General William Barr — who falsely claimed Berman “resigned.”

    Last week, the lawyer for several of Epstein’s victims, Spencer Kuvin, spoke out about the “highly suspect” removal of the top attorney. He is speculating that Trump or one of his staff may have asked Berman to stop investigating Prince Andrew over his ties to the billionaire pedophile and then fired him when he refused.

    Adding to the highly suspect nature of Berman’s firing is the circumstances under which it happened. Late last Friday night, as he thought no one was paying attention, Attorney General William Barr announced that Berman had resigned. However, that was news to Berman who quickly fired back saying he was doing no such thing.

    “I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning, my position, to which I was appointed by the Judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York,” Berman — whose office charged Jeffrey Epstein with child sex trafficking last year — said. “I will step down when a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the Senate. Until then, our investigations will move forward without delay or interruption.”

    After Berman refused to resign, he was then forced out.

    In the week since the Trump administration ousted this highly respected and successful attorney who was doing an outstanding job, neither Trump nor Barr have provided an explanation, or even a plausible cover story. Trump also claimed he had nothing to do with the firing.

    “Attorney General Barr is working on that. That’s his department, not my department,” Trump told reporters as he was leaving the White House for a campaign rally in Tulsa, Okla. “But we have a very capable attorney general. So that’s really up to him. I’m not involved.”

    The above statement turned out to be admittedly false as his own press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany later said he “was involved in a sign-off capacity.”

    “Doesn’t sound like ‘stepping down,” Preet Bharara, the previous permanent U.S. attorney in New York, said in a tweet. “Why does a president get rid of his own hand-picked US Attorney in SDNY on a Friday night, less than 5 months before the election?”

    What’s more, just weeks ago, reports were in the media noting that officials could not locate Maxwell. Now, all of the sudden she is back in her home town.

    The Maxwell case is developing and we will keep you updated on how it unfolds.

    Below is a Twitter thread by investigative reporter Whitney Webb, who has been reporting on the Epstein case for years. It provides some insight into the alleged nefarious plot unfolding in front of us.

    Short thread on some things to consider re: reports of Ghislaine’s arrest.
    1. They waited until after Bill Barr fired G Berman
    2. They reportedly arrested her in NH, they’ve known where she is this whole time, waited till now. Why now?

    Shamanism is about acknowledging the unseen, and in these challenging times, it’s easy to forget that throughout this entire journey of life we are accompanied and supported by the wisdom and love of our ancestors. They made it through everything, and we will too. 

    I feel this upcoming presentation will be exceptionally grounding and help you to return your attention to the things that matter most. ~Dylan Charles, Editor 

    The ancient knowledge of our ancestors and elders is needed now more than ever — as we navigate through times of illness, painful division, and societal disruption.

    It’s time to call on the world’s spiritual midwives — those who can bridge us to a new paradigm.  

    Rooted in ageless wisdom and collective ancestral experience, with their feet planted squarely on the earth, this circle of elders (and youth) can offer sound guidance through this pivotal global transition.

    We can refer to these guides as mystics, some of them as shamans, and others as wisdom keepers.  

    A shaman can be defined as an earth-centered community guide and healer who travels between worlds to gather and transmit information that helps individuals and the community

    In slowing down to honor and learn from these sacred guides, we’re also engaging with some of the descendants of those who survived plagues and atrocities that nearly wiped out their ancestors… as they carry forward precious cultural and spiritual knowledge from time immemorial.  

    Shamanic and mystical practices that help you remember your integral place in the world can now become part of your everyday experience.

    In the midst of the upheaval of our current times, earth-based wisdom remains a lighthouse in the storm… shining the light of perennial wisdom and connecting you to the unbreakable spirit that unites us all.  

    That’s why I’m deeply honored to tell you about the Shamanism Summit  a free online event taking place July 7-10.
