Anyone can practice the Chinese arts of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and it doesn’t take very long for a beginner to develop enough sensitivity to be able to feel Chi, or life force energy, moving and flowing throughout and around their own body.

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

This experience is so common and so accessible that Tai Chi and Qi Gong programs have spread throughout the West and continue to flourish, even though many who haven’t experienced it are unable to reconcile this seemingly magical worldview with the rigid scientific-materialistic paradigm we’ve been programmed to believe is the only way of understanding our world.

So, if so many people can experience Chi first hand, then why is so hard to believe visual demonstrations of this living power when we see them on the internet?

READ: JAPANESE MASTER DEMONSTRATES THE POWER OF CHI BY CONTROLLING ANIMALS

A video of a very simple demonstration illustrates this dilemma. YouTuber TheKunsthammer posted an experiment whereby a folded piece of origami paper was placed on a needle with a clear plastic bowl over it. He then uses his hands, outside of the bowl, to direct energy onto the paper, which begins to slowly move after some time.

The experiment is really nothing that far out. It doesn’t even compare to the video of a chi master setting papers on fire with his hands, or of Master Kanzawa Sensei who ‘exchanges energy with animals to put them to sleep. What’s speaks volumes about our culture and our connection to nature are the comments to the video of the experiment, in which the majority of people believe the experiment, while many call it out as a fraud.

Some comments to consider:

Danny Gonzales – I felt it!!!! why and how can I feel this?!?!? It’s like a magnet, exactly like a magnet but with your palms… this is insane Allen Taylor I’m a big skeptic. I did the experiment and felt it. could there be a scientific explanation for this? Sanjay Ra I have been hearing so many things about energy, mind, body and spirit but never believed. My heart wanted to believe this but my senses never experienced. This is the first time I have ever experienced in my life in such a short time, with an easy experiment. rockinanrollin girl i can feel it, weird like “electric” feeling in my hands, but why my other hand starts to get cold as the other one starts getting warm? now, after the practice i feel little tired and my hands are tingly, like the feeling when you clap your hands really hard and then stop… but i didn’t clap at all, like a warm vibrating cloud in my hands…

At some point, modern science will eventually bridge the gap and find a way to understand chi energy, but for now, analysis by Dr. Jwing-Ming Yang does a great service by relating chi to the concept of bioelectrcity.

“We must look at what modern Western science has discovered about bioelectromagnetic energy. Many bioelectricity related reports have been published, and frequently the results are closely related to what is experienced in Chinese Qigong training and medical science. For example, during the electrophysiological research of the 1960’s, several investigators discovered that bones are piezoelectric; that is, when they are stressed, mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy in the form of electric current. This might explain one of the practices of Marrow Washing Qigong in which the stress on the bones and muscles is increased in certain ways to increase the Qi circulation.” [Source]

Perhaps try this experiment for yourself and report back to us. But be forewarned, because recently a Catholic Bishop has warned the world of the demonic nature of using your hands to transmit healing (or evil) energy.  and for another simple exercise teaching you to feel the chi moving between your hands, check out the following video:

In an effort to understand the neural and cognitive pathways associated with strong beliefs and how some people seem more willing and able to challenge belief systems, neuroscientists looked at how authoritarianism and religious fundamentalism

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

In a study for Northwestern University entitled, biological and cognitive underpinnings of religious fundamentalism, researchers looked at the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) as a critical portion of the brain for representing beliefs.

We hypothesized that the vmPFC represents diverse religious beliefs and that a vmPFC lesion would be associated with religious fundamentalism, or the narrowing of religious beliefs.” [Source]

The hypothesis hoped to explain why some people are so closed-minded when compared to others, and how this characteristic either changed the structure of their brain, or how their brain was affected by their devout and unflappable beliefs.

“To test this prediction, we assessed religious adherence with a widely-used religious fundamentalism scale in a large sample of 119 patients with penetrating traumatic brain injury (pTBI). If the vmPFC is crucial to modulating diverse personal religious beliefs, we predicted that pTBI patients with lesions to the vmPFC would exhibit greater fundamentalism, and that this would be modulated by cognitive flexibility and trait openness.” [Source]

The findings serve well to establish a first link between religious fundamentalism and actual brain damage, an assertion that would surely confound those who believe so fervently in religion.

“Instead, we found that participants with dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) lesions have fundamentalist beliefs similar to patients with vmPFC lesions and that the effect of a dlPFC lesion on fundamentalism was significantly mediated by decreased cognitive flexibility and openness. These findings indicate that cognitive flexibility and openness are necessary for flexible and adaptive religious commitment, and that such diversity of religious thought is dependent on dlPFC functionality.” [Source]

READ: RELIGIOUS CHILDREN ARE MEANER AND MORE PUNITIVE THAN SECULAR KIDS, STUDY FINDS

Here, journalist Bobby Azarian explains what is meant by ‘religious beliefs:’

“Religious beliefs can be thought of as socially transmitted mental representations that consist of supernatural events and entities assumed to be real. Religious beliefs differ from empirical beliefs, which are based on how the world appears to be and are updated as new evidence accumulates or when new theories with better predictive power emerge. On the other hand, religious beliefs are not usually updated in response to new evidence or scientific explanations, and are therefore strongly associated with conservatism. They are fixed and rigid, which helps promote predictability and coherence to the rules of society among individuals within the group.” [Source]

Relating this to the study, it would appear the findings indicate that certain people are more predisposed to latching on to beliefs and evangelizing them, and that those people are also more likely to show a lack of cognitive flexibility, or open-mindedness. Both of these characteristics are more likely to be accompanied by damage to the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, thus establishing a link between radical religious fundamentalism and actual brain damage.

On Monday, I exposed the fact that most “flu” is not the flu.

For example, here is a quite suggestive quote from Peter Doshi’s report, “Are US flu death figures more PR than science?” (BMJ 2005; 331:1412):

“[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.”

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

OOPS.

Today, I want to look at the mind control aspect of this insanity.

If someone says, “You have the flu,” he means you have one thing and other people who have the flu have the same thing.

It is caused by a virus, and everyone who has the flu has that virus.

If you say, “No, the so-called flu could be caused by many different things,” people might appear to agree with you, but they’re still thinking, “The flu is one thing.”

They won’t let go. That’s called mind control.

Person A has a cough, fatigue, headache, and fever. Why? A combination of stress, exposure to cold weather, and contaminated indoor air.

Person B also has cough, fatigue, headache and fever. Why? A combination of junk food, nutritional deficits, and a toxic pain reliever.

Do persons A and B have the same thing?

No, they don’t. If they did, the causes would be the same. And they aren’t.

Now take 10,000 people who have the above list of symptoms. But none of them has the flu virus. Do any of them have the flu? No. Do they all have the same thing? No, because the combination of causes and the precise nature of each cause are not the same from person to person.

If 10,000 people have the flu virus, do they all have the flu? No. People with strong immune systems don’t get sick. People with weak immune systems do get sick. The determining factor is the condition of the immune system, not the presence of the virus. Therefore, the tight equation, “flu virus equals flu,” is false.

Understanding all these factors rearranges the thought process vis-à-vis “the flu.”

“Flu outbreak across America” is a generality. It doesn’t hold together. Once you take it apart, you see something different.

You’re no longer in a state of hypnosis about “the virus.”

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

“Yes, but all these people getting sick…showing up at hospitals…they must all have the same thing…”

No. They might have similar symptoms, but that doesn’t mean “they have the same thing.”

If you want one factor, which combined with other immune-suppressing factors, might be at work, why not start with the freezing weather across America? That could be a clue. But it’s far from the whole story.

Person C has cough, fatigue, headache, and fever. In his case, it’s caused by a combination of freezing weather, five toxic medicines on his night table at the nursing home, and a forced change of diet that increases the load of empty calories.

Person D has cough, fatigue, headache, and fever. In her case, it’s caused by grief over the loss of a loved one, a bad reaction to the flu vaccine, and a power outage that cut off heat in her home for two days.

And so forth, on and on.

Casually blaming “the virus” is a response dictated by the stimulus of news and government propaganda about “the flu.”

And the propaganda ignores the most important factor: the condition of a person’s own immune system. THAT is a non-medical situation; and increasing the power of one’s own immune response requires something the medical system refuses to recognize—all the actions a person could take under the general banner of “natural health.”

From which the medical system makes zero money.

This is called a clue.

“Let’s see. We can tell people that when they get sick with ‘flu symptoms,’ they have the flu, and it’s all about the virus. Then we can sell flu vaccines and drugs like crazy. OR we can tell them these so-called flu symptoms come from different combinations of causes, which in many cases are environmental and should be identified—and most importantly, we can tell them they need to strengthen their immune systems through ‘natural’ methods—and then we make no money and go out of business and end up pumping gas in Death Valley. Hmm. Which choice do we make? Let’s take a vote…”

As you are no doubt aware, presently the United States is experiencing an opioid epidemic. There are many reasons for this—one of the most obvious being the reckless over-subscription of opiate-based painkillers by doctors, leading to dependency. But on a psychological level, we have to take into account the strong relationship between addiction and the lack of a sense of purpose.

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

To some extent, addiction is the result of a lack of purpose. It’s partly the consequence of experiencing what the psychologist Viktor Frankl called the ‘existential vacuum’—feeling as though there is no purpose or meaning to your life. With a strong sense of purpose, we become very resilient, able to overcome challenges, and to bounce back after setbacks. We are also better able to deal with—and perhaps more motivated to overcome – the painful effects of past trauma. We never wake up in the morning with no reason to get out of bed. Life seems easier, less complicated and stressful. Our minds seem somehow tauter and stronger, with less space for negativity to seep in.

But without a sense of purpose, we are more vulnerable to becoming depressed in response to negative events. We become more susceptible to psychological discord—to boredom, frustration and pessimism. We are more liable to feel the residual pain of trauma from the past (and traumatic past experiences in themselves have also been linked to addiction). Drugs and alcohol are therefore appealing as a way of escaping the psychological problems caused by a lack of purpose. But addiction can also be seen as an attempt to find a purpose. After all, when a person becomes an addict, their lives take on a very strong sense of purpose: to satisfy the addiction. I have often heard addicts describe how life simple life becomes in addiction. There is always a clear goal in your mind and a motivation behind every moment of your existence. Everything else is secondary to the overriding purpose of feeding your addiction.

And just as there is a relationship between addiction and a lack of purpose, there is a relationship between recovering from addiction and gaining a new sense of purpose. Research has shown that, without a new sense of purpose, recovery does not tend to last. The stronger and more established a person’s sense of purpose is, the greater chance they have of remaining sober. Partly this is because there has to be something to replace the sense of purpose provided by the substance, otherwise a person is likely to return to that purpose. At the same time, a new sense of purpose can provide the resilience needed to overcome the challenges that arise with new sobriety.

A Crisis of Purpose

In my view, the present-day prevalence of addiction is a least in part symptomatic of a crisis of purpose in secular Western culture. It’s partly the result of a sense of disorientation and frustration due to the lack of the availability of fulfilling, purposive modes of living. The primary purpose that our cultures offer is what you could call a ‘self-accumulative’ purpose. We are encouraged to think of happiness in terms of acquisition and achievement. We try to get as many qualifications as we can so we can get good jobs, earn good money, buy possessions and pleasures, and slowly work our way up the ladder of success. But it’s not surprising that so many people find this type of purpose unfulfilling. After all, there is very little evidence that material success and professional achievement contribute to personal wellbeing. And due to the fact that success and wealth are limited commodities, there is a great deal of competition for them. It’s easy for people to fall behind, to lose motivation, or even to fall off the ladder altogether.

Another possibility is a religious purpose. Religion is appealing to many people because it does provide a strong sense of purpose and meaning. However, taking on a religious purpose usually involves accepting questionable and irrational beliefs, and subsuming one’s individuality and intellectual independence within a pre-given framework, which is difficult for many of us to do. As a result, religion offers only limited help.

More Fulfilling Types of Purpose 

To my mind, therefore, large-scale problems with substance abuse are an inevitable result of a culture that is ‘purpose deficient.’ It’s clearly essential to take appropriate social and political measures, such as reducing the availability of prescription opioids and funding recovery programs, but at the same time—from a longer-term perspective—we need to encourage the adoption of more satisfactory and fulfilling types of purpose, beyond self-accumulation and religion.

(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 a research project at my university, we studied the effects of different types of purpose and found that an altruistic and a ‘self-expansive’ purpose were much more strongly associated with well-being. (By ‘self-expansive’ we mean that a person’s sense of purpose is to grow, to expand themselves and their horizons, and to fulfill their potential. This often means following a creative path, or a path of personal or spiritual development.) Altruism is much more fulfilling than self-accumulation because it connects us to other people, and helps us to transcend a self-centered preoccupation with our own desires or worries. Altruism is also non-material, and therefore limitless. We don’t need to compete against each other for kindness. A self-expansive purpose is so fulfilling because it gives us a sense of dynamic movement, with feelings of flow and accomplishment and meaning.

So in order to transcend our present state of purpose deficiency (and so transcend the psychological discord that so easily leads to addiction), there ought to be a cultural movement to encourage the adoption of these different types of purpose. Rather than encouraging consumerism and competitiveness, we should be encouraging altruism, creativity and spirituality. Perhaps most of all, this should begin with an overhaul of education systems, which tragically neglect these areas, in favor of training pupils and students for a treadmill of unfulfilling striving.

Unless this happens—whilst it may be mitigated by social and political changes—the tragic specter of addiction will always hover over us.

Astronomers have once against detected a set of strange signals coming from a distant galaxy 1.5 billion light years away. The signals have been picked up by a telescope in Canada, and the nature and precise origin of the radio waves is completely unknown.

Scientists recorded 13 fast radio bursts, commonly known as FRBs, these are essentially extremely powerful energetic emissions that can be measured by the technology we have produced here on Earth. These blasts only last a few milliseconds on average, which makes the need for computer analysis of them necessary in order to make any sense of them. While we are unsure of where exactly these signals come from, scientists have been cataloging them for quite some time now, but a lot is still unknown.

What makes this recent detection so special is the fact that among the 13 FBRs was a very unusual repeating signal that came from the same source, approximately 1.5 billion light years away. Such a repeating signal has only been reported once before, which makes this particular detection more mysterious, and quite historical.

Knowing that there is another suggests that there could be more out there. And with more repeaters and more sources available to study, we maybe be able to understand these cosmic puzzles – where they’re from and what causes them.” (source)

The detection came from the CHIME observatory in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, which consists of four 100-metre-long, semi-cylindrical antennas, which scan the entire northern sky each day.

“We have discovered a second repeater and its properties are very similar to the first repeater, this tells us more about the properties of repeaters as a population ” said Shriharsh Tendulkar of McGill University, Canada.

“This tells us more about the properties of repeaters as a population.”

Again, this is only the second time a “repeater” has been found, and although we don’t really know what that means, Tedulkar  emphasized that the structure of this repeater is very similar to the previous one, the only other one to be detected.

The team has published their new findings in the journal Nature.

Next Steps?

Right now, the next step is for the researchers is to understand whether the repeating FBRs and single FBRs are from different sources. Where do they come from? What objects are they coming from? Are they related in some sort of way to each other?

We are trying to figure these things out, so that’s really exciting

By the sounds of it, obviously scientists have no clue where these are coming from at this point, and what exactly is sending them, but that’s all part of the fun.

There is a lot of fun in the not knowing. You keep adding more information, but as in all sciences, whenever you solve on mystery, it always opens up three more. –  Shami Chatterjee, a senior researcher at the Cornell Center for Astrophysics and Planetary Science who was not involved in the latest discoveries

The radio waves get twisted as they travel through space and can scatter or be absorbed by gas and plasma. The team believes that all 13 bursts likely originated from dense, turbulent regions inside of their host galaxies, particularly areas with a lot of violent activity, such as near dense supernova remnants or close to black holes.

Could They Be Alien?

There is also the possibility that perhaps, these could be signs of extraterrestrial life, but this is common with any-type of mainstream science article contemplating the idea, they completely ignore the fact that there is already “abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visited us for a very long time.” – Dr. Brian O’Leary, Ex NASA Astronaut and Princeton physics professor. (Source)

“There is another way, whether it’s wormholes, or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re [extraterrestrials] here shows us that they found a way.” (source) – Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska.

Whether these signals do or do not originate from extraterrestrial life, in my opinion, is irrelevant when talking about the alien subject. We already know they exist and have been in contact with them, the question is why do we still explore these signals as somehow pertaining to alien life when the more fascinating fact is that they already exist and we know that?

The Takeaway

As human beings, we are born curious, it’s simply in our nature. From the moment of our first breath, we become explorers and discoverers, full of curiosity and wonder. This natural state also represents humanity, and throughout history, all we have done is explore and discover.

Unfortunately today, things have changed. We are no longer living in an environment that’s conducive to what we are naturally built to do. Instead of following our hearts and curiosity, we are all put on the same path, into the same system, and encouraged to become “a productive member of society” by entering into the workforce in order to pay bills and put food on the table.

The truth is, we have much greater potential than that, and as a collective we can create a human experience where everybody can truly thrive. Just imagine what we’d do if we chose to provide everybody with their basic needs, and if we unhooked ourselves from the dependency of a very small group of people and the corporations they run. What if we used a model of cooperation, and love and instead of being taught to compete in the game of ‘survival of the fittest.’

Many still don’t see how this is possible, or how a moneyless/workless society is possible, but if it was achieved, we would go back to what we naturally do, explore and discover.

Today, the gifts of exploration and discovery have been replaced with limitation and brainwashing. Fortunately, humanity is waking up. It’s quite clear that there’s a massive shift in consciousness taking place right now, and we are becoming more aware of is not only happening right in front of us in our world, but how much potential we actually have. If you don’ think the world can change, it simply means your mind and perception is limited to one small viewpoint.

The search for extraterrestrial life perhaps represents our desire to discover and explore. Space is the next frontier, and most likely not the final one. The realization that we are not alone leaves no aspect of humanity untouched, and it will allow us to learn more about ourselves, as well as the nature of reality, human consciousness, the soul, and much more.

These radio signal detections do nothing but open the minds of the masses even more, in what seems to be a speedy process to acclimatize the human mind to the idea that there is much more out here than just us.

The United States stands almost entirely alone among developed nations in adding industrial silicofluorides to its drinking water—imposing the community-wide measure without informed consent. Globally, roughly 5% of the population consumes chemically fluoridated water, but more people in the U.S. drink fluoride-adulterated water than in all other countries combined. Within the U.S., just under a third (30%) of local water supplies are not fluoridated; these municipalities have either held the practice at bay since fluoridation’s inception or have won hard-fought battles to halt water fluoridation.

Dozens of studies and reviews—including in top-tier journals such as The Lancet—have shown that fluoride is neurotoxic and lowers children’s IQ.

The fluoride chemicals added to drinking water are unprocessed toxic wasteproducts—captured pollutants from Florida’s phosphate fertilizer industry or unregulated chemical imports from China. The chemicals undergo no purification before being dumped into drinking water and often harbor significant levels of arsenic and other heavy metal contamination; one researcher describes this unavoidable contamination as a “regulatory blind spotthat jeopardizes any safe use of fluoride additives.”

Dozens of studies and reviews—including in top-tier journals such as The Lancet—have shown that fluoride is neurotoxic and lowers children’s IQ. Fluoride is also associated with a variety of other health risks in both children and adults. However, U.S. officialdom persists in making hollow claims that water fluoridation is safe and beneficial, choosing to ignore even its own research! A multimillion-dollar longitudinal study published in Environmental Health Perspectives in September, 2017, for example, was largely funded by the National Institutes of Health and National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences—and the seminal study revealed a strong relationship between fluoride exposure in pregnant women and lowered cognitive function in offspring. Considered in the context of other research, the study’s implications are, according to the nonprofit Fluoride Action Network, “enormous”—“a cannon shot across the bow of the 80 year old practice of artificial fluoridation.”

According to declassified government documents summarized by Project Censored, Manhattan Project scientists discovered early on that fluoride was a leading health hazard to bomb program workers and surrounding communities. A little history

During World War II, fluoride (a compound formed from the chemical element fluorine) came into large-scale production and use as part of the Manhattan Project. According to declassified government documents summarized by Project Censored, Manhattan Project scientists discovered early on that fluoride was a “leading health hazard to bomb program workers and surrounding communities.” In order to stave off lawsuits, government scientists “embarked on a campaign to calm the social panic about fluoride…by promoting its usefulness in preventing tooth decay.”

To prop up its “exaggerated claims of reduction in tooth decay,” government researchers began carrying out a series of poorly designed and fatally flawed community trials of water fluoridation in a handful of U.S. cities in the mid-1940s. In a critique decades later, a University of California-Davis statistician characterized these early agenda-driven fluoridation trials as “especially rich in fallacies, improper design, invalid use of statistical methods, omissions of contrary data, and just plain muddleheadedness and hebetude.” As one example, a 15-year trial launched in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1945 used a nearby city as a non-fluoridated control, but after the control city began fluoridating its own water supply five years into the study, the design switched from a comparison with the non-fluoridated community to a before-and-after assessment of Grand Rapids. Fluoridation’s proponents admitted that this change substantially “compromised” the quality of the study.

In 1950, well before any of the community trials could reach any conclusions about the systemic health effects of long-term fluoride ingestion, the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) endorsed water fluoridation as official public health policy, strongly encouraging communities across the country to adopt the unproven measure for dental caries prevention. Describing this astonishingly non-evidence-based step as “the Great Fluoridation Gamble,” the authors of the 2010 book, The Case Against Fluorideargue that:

“Not only was safety not demonstrated in anything approaching a comprehensive and scientific study, but also a large number of studies implicating fluoride’s impact on both the bones and the thyroid gland were ignored or downplayed” (p. 86).

In 2015, Newsweek magazine not only agreed that the scientific rationale for putting fluoride in drinking water was not as “clear-cut” as once thought but also shared the “shocking” finding of a more recent Cochrane Collaboration review, namely, that there is no evidence to support the use of fluoride in drinking water.

Bad science and powerful politics

The authors of The Case Against Fluoride persuasively argue that “bad science” and “powerful politics” are primary factors explaining why government agencies continue to defend the indefensible practice of water fluoridation, despite abundant evidence that it is unsafe both developmentally and after “a lifetime of exposure to uncontrolled doses.” Comparable to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s bookThimerosal: Let the Science Speak, which summarizes studies that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and “credulous journalists swear don’t exist,” The Case Against Fluoride is an extensively referenced tour de force, pulling together hundreds of studies showing evidence of fluoride-related harm.

… death rates in the ten most fluoridated U.S. states are 5% to 26% higher than in the ten least fluoridated states, with triple the rate of Alzheimer’s disease.

The research assembled by the book’s authors includes studies on fluoride biochemistry; cancer; fluoride’s effects on the brain, endocrine system and bones; and dental fluorosis. With regard to the latter, public health agencies like to define dental fluorosis as a purely cosmetic issue involving “changes in the appearance of tooth enamel,” but the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT)—a global network of dentists, health professionals and scientists dedicated to science-based biological dentistry—describes the damaged enamel and mottled and brittle teeth that characterize dental fluorosis as “the first visible sign of fluoride toxicity.”

The important 2017 study that showed decrements in IQ following fluoride exposure during pregnancy is far from the only research sounding the alarm about fluoride’s adverse developmental effects. In his 2017 volumePregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix, John D. MacArthur pulls together hundreds of studies linking fluoride to premature birth and impaired neurological development (93 studies), preelampsia (77 studies) and autism (110 studies). The book points out that rates of premature birth are “unusually high” in the United States. At the other end of the lifespan, MacArthur observes that death rates in the ten most fluoridated U.S. states are 5% to 26% higher than in the ten least fluoridated states, with triple the rate of Alzheimer’s disease. A 2006 report by the National Research Council warned that exposure to fluoride might increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

The word is out

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix shows that the Institute of Medicine, National Research Council, Harvard’s National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Toxicology Program all are well aware of the substantial evidence of fluoride’s developmental neurotoxicity, yet no action has been taken to warn pregnant women. Instead, scientists with integrity, legal professionals and the public increasingly are taking matters into their own hands. A Citizens Petitionsubmitted in 2016 to the EPA under the Toxic Substances Control Act requested that the EPA “exercise its authority to prohibit the purposeful addition of fluoridation chemicals to U.S. water supplies.” This request—the focus of a lawsuit to be argued in court later in 2019—poses a landmark challenge to the dangerous practice of water fluoridation and has the potential to end one of the most significant chemical assaults on our children’s developing bodies and brains.

The ketogenic diet has gained a tremendous amount of popularity over the past few years, and it’s become a trend that many people are adopting without doing their own research first. We’ve written multiple articles on the ketogenic diet, a diet that promotes a high fat/low carb intake in order to prolong the production of ketone bodies in one’s blood. The release of these ketone bodies happens when we fast and deplete our glucose reserves, which develop from eating carbohydrates that turn into sugar. One can prolong the production of these ketones by sticking to a low carbohydrate/high fat diet, and essentially run off of fat instead of their glucose reserves.

The ketogenic diet is being used as an intervention for cancer, and there are multiple studies showing how ketones can actually kill cancer. It’s becoming well known that cancer cells cannot efficiently process ketone bodies for energy. Essentially, the cell starves itself, and ketones help slow the proliferation of tumor cells. Dietary ketones have been shown to completely halt metastasis. For example, a study titled “The Ketogenic Diet & Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Prolong Survival in Mice with Systemic Metastatic Cancer” explains how it’s already known that the ketogenic diet elevates blood ketones and has been shown to slow cancer progression in both animals and humans. The study also revealed that the ketogenic diet “significantly decreased blood glucose, slowed tumor growth, and increased mean survival time by 56.8 percent in mice with systemic metastatic cancer.”

Fasting (when you fast you produce ketones) is also being used for cancer intervention, seizure prevention (epilepsy), and as a potential therapy for alzheimer’s disease, parkinson’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders.

A TEDx talk given by Mark Mattson, the current Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience, at the National Institute on Aging goes into detail about fasting, ketones, and how beneficial it is for the brain. He is also a professor of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University and one of the foremost researchers of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying multiple neurodegenerative disorders.

In 1923, scientist Otto Warburg hypothesized that cancer was caused by a metabolic process whereby cancer cells fuel their growth “by swallowing up enormous amounts of glucose [blood sugar] and breaking it down without oxygen.” Coined the Warburg Effect, the theory was considered controversial at the time, but the past few decades have sparked new interest in it and oncologists now use the dependence on glucose that cancer cells have to locate tumours within a patient’s body.

Warburg made his discovery around the same time the ketogenic diet was found to be beneficial for epilepsy. Studies have shown that when the body produces ketones, they form a protective barrier around the brain, which is why more and more paediatricians are recommending the diet for children with epilepsy. It has a huge success rate, but since fasting is neither marketable nor profitable, it receives little mainstream attention.

All of these are specific interventions for certain diseases, and they can be healthy. On a personal level, I believe fasting a few times a month is extremely healthy and can be very beneficial for the body. All of the studies in human and animal models show nothing but benefits.  Keep in mind that while you fast, you also get the benefits of ketones.

This is far different from continuing on with a no carb, high fat diet where you are constantly producing ketones and burning fat. It doesn’t seem normal unless you have to do it for a specific intervention, like cancer. Despite the potential health benefits, the ‘ketogenic diet’ has become a fad with potential dangers that people should also be aware of.

The Five Reasons

Below is a list of points regarding the ketogenic diet from Michelle McMacken, an internal medicine physician, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the NYU School of Medicine, and Director of Bellevue Hospital Weight Management Clinic.

I came across these via her Instagram, which make it clear she does not support the diet:

1. That we know of, no population in history has ever thrived on a very-low-carb/high-fat diet. There is exactly zero scientific evidence that a keto diet is conducive to longevity & longstanding vitality – unlike a plant-centric diet, the foundation of the longest-lived people on earth.

2. A keto diet may cause short-term weight loss, but possibly at a serious price. A 2010 review found that low-carb, animal-based diets increased cardiovascular death by 14%, cancer death by 28%, & all-cause mortality by 23%- trends confirmed in other large studies.

3. A keto diet hasn’t been shown to prevent, control, or reverse type 2 diabetes in the long run. Avoiding carbs will temporarily lower your blood sugar if you have diabetes. But this simply masks the underlying problem, which is insulin resistance – ie. glucose in our blood can’t enter our cells & the liver overproduces sugar. This is NOT the fault of carbs from healthy foods – whole grains, legumes, fruit, or even starchy vegetables. In fact, a high-carb, high-fiber, plant-based diet is exceptionally protective against diabetes & can actually REVERSE insulin resistance & lower diabetes complications. In contrast, low-carb diets can promote diabetes over time, as they foster inflammation & fat buildup in our cells, causing insulin resistance.

4. Keto diet research is in its infancy, focusing on short-term blood results & body weight – not actual rates of disease or death. And some findings are concerning. LDL cholesterol levels tend to rise (or at best, stay the same) on keto diets. An overwhelming wealth of research shows that the higher the LDL, the higher the risk of cardiovascular disease.

5. A keto diet is low in refined grains & added sugar, which is great. But it also can be low in phytonutrients, antioxidants, & fiber, all of which have profound benefits, and it forbids some of the most powerfully health-promoting foods on earth – whole grains, legumes, & many fruits. To me, that’s just not good medicine.

The Takeaway

It’s great to see the world becoming more health conscious, it’s one of multiple contributing factors in raising our vibrational frequency, and feeling more ‘alive.’ That being said, a lot of ‘fads’ seem to pop up in this field, which are coupled with a great misunderstanding of how these specific diets, like the ketogenic diet, is supposed to be used. At the end of the day, balance is key, and it’s best to incorporate more organic fruits and vegetables in your diet, and completely cut out all processed foods, and substances like high fructose corn syrup etc. Being healthy is not hard, and it’s not complicated. If you’re going to incorporate a specific diet into your lifestyle, just make sure it’s not one that’s specifically designed to combat certain diseases, like the ketogenic diet.

Ending The Debate About The Ketogenic Diet – 9 Studies You Must Be Aware Of 

 

We recently published an article about the fact that a Federal Grand Jury will be tasked to listen to and deliberate on evidence of a controlled demolition of all three towers on September 11th, 2001. This is exciting news, and it’s one of multiple examples that illustrate how America is far from being a democracy. Millions of Americans (well over 50 percent) have expressed their concerns over what really happened that day, and have been demanding an investigation into the events for nearly 20 years. If Americans lived in a real democracy, the voice of the people would have been heard already and an investigation would be taking place. But there have been no further investigations, and our cries continue to be ignored, which is why it’s great to see citizens standing up and taking action for themselves instead of relying solely on the government.

There is more than enough evidence to prove that foul play occurred on 9/11, and much of it comes from US intelligence agencies. For example, General Albert Stubblebine, who is credited with redesigning the U.S. Army intelligence architecture during his time as commanding general of the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command, has been very outspoken about 9/11, claiming that a plane did not actually hit the Pentagon. We also have peer-reviewed studies published in physics and engineering journals concluding that all three towers were brought down by a controlled demolition, a president of the United States (Donald Trump) stating that there is no way planes brought down the towers, and thousands upon thousands of architects and engineers alluding to the same thing.

You can see these articles and access those studies further down within this article, as they’re linked below the video.

And how about the fact that George H. W. Bush met with the Bin Laden family the morning of 9/11?

Regardless of what you believe, all of this information warrants an investigation, and the fact that this hasn’t been done yet simply isn’t right. Why has the US government refused to publicly investigate 9/11 for this long?

Perhaps some of the most shocking revelations regarding 9/11 come from the people who were actually there. Unfortunately, many of the people passed away during the event,  but some managed to escape the building and many firefighters on site survived as well. (See video below).

Below is a picture taken in 1997 of Robert McIlvaine (far left) and his family, including his son Bobby (far right) who died in the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. McIlvaine has become a vocal 9/11 truth activist, along with countless other family members of the victims of 9/11.

Bobby McIlvaine was the inspiration behind The Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act, which is a draft legislation aimed at investigating the destruction of all three WTC towers. Bobby lost his life at the age of 26 when he entered the north tower, and his father has been a leading advocate for a new investigation.  You can contact your members of Congress through their website at http://AE911Truth.org/Justice or directly on your own to help with this cause.

Below is a video of Bobby’s father and a compilation of multiple clips of survivors and firefighters who were actually in the building that day. It’s really something else to watch a video of people who actually experienced this event and heard the explosions go off inside.

The Takeaway

Despite how tragic 9/11 was, it ultimately served a purpose. It ‘woke up’ millions of people to the fact that “the war on terror” is a complete sham, and that events like 9/11 are often used as justification for the infiltration of other countries to serve ulterior motives. However, 9/11 is not the only example of this. For example, the chemical gas attacks in Syria were another false-flag terrorist attack, and for the first time in history, multiple politicians actually used the term “false flag.”

But again, it’s a narrative that’s been emphasized forever. “The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.” – former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook (This quote was given at the House of Commons, I retrieved it from Pierre-Henri Bunel)

9/11 and other events that followed have created a massive shift in consciousness, and this change in perception is still gaining momentum.

Tragedies like 9/11 serve as a reminder that we must strive not to repeat history. We need to question the truth of these events and conduct our own research in order to prevent further corruption from occurring. These events provide us with the opportunity to see through the veils that have been blinding the masses for decades.

Take a moment to compare the narrative we were told on that day to the research we’ve uncovered nearly 20 years later. We’ve gone from thinking it’s a terrorist attack to amassing tons of studies, research, and witness testimonies in support of 9/11 being an inside job.

More and more people are waking up to the reality of what happened on 9/11, and the Fawcett will not stop dripping.

With an aging population comes increasing fear of a disease that may be more frightening to many people than cancer or heart disease. Both of those diseases—formerly death-sentences if diagnosed—are showing improving survival rates due to breakthroughs in research and improved diagnosis and treatment methods.

Alzheimer’s Disease is the scourge of the elderly and near-elderly. Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia can sometimes reduce high-functioning adults to little more than large-sized two-year-olds, robbing them of language, problem-solving abilities, reasoning, memory, and other cognitive functions.

The threat of losing dignity, independence, and self-sufficiency of basic human needs is a great fear for those approaching their elder years. Some rationalize that those with severe dementia may lack the sufficient mental acuity to realize the full extent of their illness, preventing some victims from recognizing that they even have dementia.

Is Dementia Inevitable?

According to Alzheimer’s Disease Statistics, an estimated 5.7 million people in the United States have dementia, with twenty-five percent of those suffering severe dementia. Though common in older people, dementia is not thought to be a normal result of aging, as many in their 90’s and above are symptom-free. However, the causes of dementia are not known at this time.

Everyone has moments of forgetfulness or so-called ‘senior moments,’ such as the inability to find the right words, difficulty remembering names, forgetting where things were placed, and the classic frustration felt when you’ve gone purposefully into a room only to realize the purpose has been forgotten. These normal moments of forgetfulness can trigger fear that dementia is approaching.

Can Alzheimer’s Disease be Prevented?

Alzheimer’s Disease is one form of dementia, a general term for diminished mental capabilities. There are many classifications of dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease. Alzheimer’s is characterized by clumps of protein called plaques and tangled fibers inside the nerve cells of the brain. Other forms of dementia affect the brain differently. Dementia cannot be cured; however, there is growing evidence that steps can be taken to delay or prevent the onset of dementia.

A comprehensive dementia report on WebMD describes some of the factors apparently offering some protection or delay against the onset of dementia. These include maintaining tight control of glucose levels and engaging in intellectually stimulating activities or mind exercices. Scientists hypothesize that intellectual activity increases the brain’s ability to compensate for the physical changes associated with dementia.

Other factors being studied with potential impact of preventing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia include lowering blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine, lowering cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, increasing exercise, and obtaining higher education.

Diagnosing Dementia – A Dementia Test

After eliminating diseases and physical injuries that can cause dementia-like symptoms, doctors arrive at a dementia diagnosis if two or more brain functions are significantly impaired. Impaired brain functions might include memory loss, loss of language skills, impaired perception, dramatic personality changes, and impaired problem-solving, reasoning, and judgment.

Normal memory loss can be frightening, as one may fear the onset of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. There may now be an easy means of calming one’s fears or helping to confirm the worst. Scientists at The Ohio State University Medical College have developed a self-administered dementia test called SAGE, which they claim can identify mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early dementia. The test, which is available for free download, takes about fifteen minutes and includes self-scoring instructions.

Protection Against Dementia

Though Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia are widely feared due to the impacts they have on mental functioning and maintaining self-sufficiency, there is promise that the onset of dementia can be prevented or delayed by exercising the mind, physical exercise, and making other healthy lifestyle choices. The SAGE dementia test may ease the minds of those concerned that dementia is beginning.

“Silk Road was supposed to be about giving people the freedom to make their own choices, to pursue their own happiness, however they individually saw fit. [It] turned out to be a naive and costly idea that I deeply regret.” ~Ross in sentencing letter to his judge

The internet’s first successful global black market was Silk Road, a website founded by ‘Dread Pirate Roberts,’ the web pseudonym of Ross Ulbricht.

Currently 34 years-old, Ross is serving a double life sentence plus 40 years in federal prison as a political prisoner of the United States. At its root, his crime is that he created a place where people around the world could engage in trade with each other without the oversight of the state. It was an experiment in true privacy and voluntary association that worked so well the state shut it down and inhumanely punished Ross for thinking outside of the statist matrix.

You see, the state is control by force of violence. The lives so many of us enjoy are in effect curated by the laws, regulations and whims of the state, and so long as we don’t think too deeply about the possibility of a stateless world with a truly free economy, Uncle Sam (or Uncle Joe, or Chariman Mao, or whomever) is happy to let us graze in his wide pastures. Should we stray to far, we can expect to be severely beaten as an example to others who might be considering the same.

More than anything, Ross committed thought crimes. That is, he clearly articulated why the state has no place in the lives of truly free, sovereign human beings, and proposed and executed on ideas to realize this vision for humanity.

Read the following quotes by Dread Pirate Roberts to better understand why the state threw the book at Ross, and to understand why the state must at all costs stamp out certain ideas should they prove to be real-world, viable alternatives to the violence and coercion of state control.

1.) On the Libertarian principles on which Silk Road was founded:

“Silk Road was founded on libertarian principles and continues to be operated on them. It is a great idea and a great practical system…It is not a utopia. It is regulated by market forces, not a central power (even I am subject to market forces by my competition. No one is forced to be here). The same principles that have allowed Silk Road to flourish can and do work anywhere human beings come together. The only difference is that the State is unable to get its thieving murderous mitts on it.” [10/1/2012]

2.) On the War on Drugs and agorism:

“Silk Road has already made an impact on the war on drugs. The effect of the war is to limit people’s access to controlled substances. Silk Road has expanded people’s access. The great thing about agorism is that it is a victory from a thousand battles. Every single transaction that takes place outside the nexus of state control is a victory for those individuals taking part in the transaction. So there are thousands of victories here each week and each one makes a difference, strengthens the agora, and weakens the state.” [9/23/2012]

3.) On fighting state power with ingenuity:

As a community, if we are going to survive, we need to adopt a LONG TERM vision. Getting the most out of this thing before it gets taken down is NOT going to bring us success. In that world, Silk Road will be a shooting star that burns out quickly and dies as little more than a dream, swallowed by the nightmare reality of an ever-expanding, all-powerful global oligarchy. Planning ahead and doing everything we can NOW to prepare for the war to come is the only way we are going to have a shot at this. We are still mostly ignored by our true enemies, but this incubation WILL NOT last forever.

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

I don’t like writing this kind of stuff publicly because it taunts our enemies and might spur them into action, but I risk it because the context for what we are doing is too often lost in the day to day stuff that happens here and it needs to be put in from time to time. Silk Road NEEDS our support. It needs everything we have. The return on what we put into it will be immeasurable if we can get through the months and years ahead and gain a real foothold on the global stage. HELP ME GET US THERE!!! Do it for me, do it for yourself, do it for your families and friends, and do it for mankind.” [1/11/2012]

4.) On the potential for a state ban on Tor or Bitcoin:

“The state may try to ban our tools, but if we never use them for fear of them being banned, then we have already lost, no? Personally, I don’t think they can be effectively banned at this point. Iran and China, for example, are actively trying and failing.” [9/23/2012]

5.) On the right to self defense:

“We at Silk Road have no moral objection to the sale of small-arm weaponry. We believe that an individual’s ability to defend themselves is a cornerstone of a civil society. Without this, those with weapons with eventually walk all over defenseless individuals. It could be criminals who prey on others, knowing they are helpless. It could be police brutalizing people with no fear of immediate reprisal. And as was seen too many times in the last century, it could be an organized government body committing genocide on an entire unarmed populace. Without the ability to defend them, the rest of your human rights will be eroded and stripped away as well.

That being said, there is no reason we have to force everyone into a one-size-fits-all market where one group has to compromise their beliefs for the benefit of another. That’s the kind of narrow thinking currently used by governments around the world. It’s why we are in this mess in the first place. The majority in many countries feel that drugs and guns should be illegal or heavily regulated, so the minority suffers.” [2/26/2012]

6.) On honoring the most important member of society, the individual:

“Here at Silk Road, we recognize the smallest minority of all, YOU! Every person is unique, and their human rights are more important than any lofty goal, any mission, or any program. An individual’s rights ARE the goal, ARE the mission, ARE the program. If the majority wants to ban the sale of guns on Silk Road, there is no way we are going to turn our backs on the minority who needs weaponry for self defense.” [2/26/2012]

7.) On the Federal Reserve banking system:

“The Federal Reserve system relies on the force of government to maintain its monopoly power on the issuance of money. This is how all central banks maintain their control. Without the state’s involvement, people would be free to use whatever currency they like. Historically this was gold. If the founders of the fed tried to do what they did w/o the Federal Reserve Act legislation, and later the Brenton Woods agreement, they would have failed miserably. No one would have bought into their system.

In fact, this is the beauty of libertarianism. The people are free to choose what system they want. No need for one size fits all government solutions. If you want to use a debt based inflationary monetary system, go right ahead, doesn’t affect me so long as you don’t try to force me to use it as well.” [1/30/2013]

8.) On the problem with the U.S. Constitution:

“I have a pet theory about where the framers went wrong. First off, I can’t applaud them enough for what they accomplished given the circumstances. It’s easy to critique centuries later, supported by the wealth their system allowed to emerge. But I wonder how things would have happened differently had the constitution been 100% voluntary. As in, here are the rules our members live by and how those rules are amended. If you want to be in the club, you must pay your dues and follow the rules, but if you want to go it alone, or join a different club, we won’t bother you unless you bother us, and you are free to go at any time.” [10/16/2012]

9.) On the need for conscious agorism:

“Anything you do that is outside the control of the state is agorist, so in some sense we are all agorists whether we know it or not. Some people just take those actions because of the personal gain they can obtain, which is perfectly fine, but some do it as a conscientious objection and act of rebellion against the state as well.

I’m out to turn unconscious agorists into conscious active ones. :)” [10/04/2012]

10.) On the so-called positive benefits of warfare:

“There is an important point you are overlooking in your assessment of the positive benefits of warfare, and that is the costs, both seen and unseen. The seen costs are obvious: death and destruction. However, the unseen costs alone make the benefits you mentioned not worthwhile. That unseen cost is lost demand in the private sector. It’s simple: the resources used in warfare are unavailable to private individuals. We have no idea what people would’ve done with the trillions of dollars worth of resources that have gone into blowing people and things up, not to mention the resources that were directly destroyed. Considering the efficiency with which people competing in the market operate, and the inefficiency of the military bureaucracy, I suspect that the innovation and wealth produced by a world without war would make any advances the military has made look negligible.” [10/11/2012]

11.) On how to fix TSA and airport security:

“Here’s a market solution for ya: hold airlines accountable for any destruction that comes about as a result of misuse of their planes or other property. They would then insure against it and actuaries would be able to put a price on this potential cost and the risk reduction of security measures in airports so airlines could make economic decisions about what measures to take. Customers would also get a say as they choose their airlines based on cost vs. security measures taken.” [10/11/2012]

12.) On the paradigm of large corporations wielding so much political and social power:

“The people who run corporations, heads of state, the person selling you food, you, me and every human being are all fallible and capable of using power to dominate other people. Liberty is not a pill that makes men angels. What it does do is limit the extent to which evil can be expressed in the world. Right now, in any given geographic area, we have a monopoly on many of the most vital social institutions that is maintained through violence. If voluntary organizations consolidate their power and turn on their customers and start stealing from them, putting them in cages, killing them, spying on them and telling them what they can and can’t do, well then we’re back to where we started, the present day state. But, if I am correct, and the pressure for those firms to compete with one another for our favor leads them to serve us, then we can have freedom and prosperity the likes of which the world has never known.” [10/3/2012]

13.) On the police state vs. free market security:

“State police scare the hell out of me. Who would you trust more, someone who you paid to protect you and who’s livelihood depends on your continuing to pay them, or someone who steals from you (taxes), buys guns with the money (FBI, DEA, ATF, Military, local and state police, etc.), and then forces you to do things against your will when you are not hurting anyone else?

…Bullies are bad and should be spanked.” [10/1/2012]

14.) On why we need true government not a monopoly of force: 

“This may shock some of you to hear coming from me, but we absolutely NEED government, and good government at that. In fact, the services the current governments of the world monopolize or regulate are some of the most demanded and needed: security/defense, law, dispute resolution, education, healthcare, transportation, utilities, quality control etc.

The question I present to you is, do we want a single entity monopolizing the provision of all of these critical goods and services, or do we want a choice?” [9/29/2012]

15.) On legalizing, taxing drugs, and ending the war on drugs:

“I keep hearing this argument come up when people talk about drug prohibition: legalize, regulate and tax it. On the surface it sounds like a good idea. No more drug war, more tax revenue, government regulators can make sure it is safe. Makes sense, right?

I can’t help but think something is wrong though. Feels like the bastards that have been screwing everyone over all this time still win in this scenario. Now all that money can go to the state and to their cronies, right?

Here’s the rub: the drug war is an acute symptom of a deeper problem, and that problem is the state. If they “legalize, regulate and tax” it, it’s just one more part of society under their thumb, another productive sector that they can leech off of.

If prohibition is lifted, most people here will go away. You’ll go back to your lives and get your drugs from whatever state certified dispensaries are properly licensed to sell to you. Drug use will be as interesting as smoking and drinking.

Here’s my point: Silk Road is about something much bigger than thumbing your nose at the man and getting your drugs anyway. It’s about taking back our liberty and our dignity and demanding justice. If prohibition is lifted, and the drug industry is placed under the yoke of the state, then we won in a small way, but lost in a big way. Right now, drugs are ours. They aren’t tainted by the government. We the people control their manufacture, distribution and consumption. We should be looking to expand that control, taking back our power, no giving what is ours to the very people that have been our enemies all along.

It’s easy to justify though. Think of all the horrors the war on drugs has caused that will be gone, almost instantly. That pain could stop!

Don’t be tempted by this short-term easy fix of “let the government handle it.” Their time is coming to an end. The future is OUR time. Let us take this opportunity they’ve given us to gain a foothold from which we can throw that yoke off completely. We are NOT beasts of burden to be taxed and controlled and regulated. WE are free spirits! We DEMAND respect! The future can be a time where the human spirit flourishes, unbridled, wild and free! Don’t be so quick to put on that harness and pull for the parasites.

If prohibition is lifted, where will you be? Will you forget about all this revolution stuff? Will you go back to ignoring that itching feeling that something isn’t right, that men in uniforms and behind desks have just a bit too much control over your life, and are taking more and more of your sovereignty every day? Will you go back to thinking that taxes are as inevitable as death and the best you can do is to pull as hard as you can for them until you mind, body and spirit are all used up? Or will you feel the loss, as one more wild west frontier comes under the dominion of the enemy, and redouble your efforts to stop it?

I know where I’ll be. I won’t rest until children are born into a world where oppression, institutional violence and control, world war, and all the other hallmarks of the state are as ancient history as pharaohs commanding armies of slaves. The drug war merely brings to light their nature and shows us who they really are. Legalizing it won’t change that and will only make them stronger. Hold on to what you DO have, and stand for the freedom you deserve!” [4/29/2012]

With the movement to legalize cannabis for medical and recreational purposes, scientists are able to look more closely at the unique components of this plant, learning evermore about the positive effects it can have on our physical and mental health. A recent medical study in Israel looked at how an organic compound in cannabis can help to mitigate inflammation.

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

Chronic inflammation has become a serious health issue in our society today, caused by the introduction of adulterated and processed foods, toxins in our environment and insanely high levels of stress. Some doctors and researchers have even suggested that inflammation is the cause of all modern disease, therefore, natural solutions to stopping inflammation are critical to health.

A Israeli study conducted in late 2018 looked at how compounds in cannabis can positively affect inflammation. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one such compound in cannabis that has a wide range of medical benefits and is becoming wildly popular in the marketplace, but a lesser-known compound, terpenoids, demonstrated remarkable power to mitigate inflammation.

Terpenoids, often referred to as terpenes, are volatile, aromatic oils released by the cannabis plant when flowering.

“Different chemotypes of cannabis have a distinctive composition of terpenoids. These essential oils do have anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities that vary according to their composition, but they had no effect on TNFa titers [antibodies].”

 

“We suggest that terpenoids may be used to diminute acute inflammation effect, whereas the cannabinoids to inhibit chronic inflammation symptoms.” [Source]

In short, this means that we may be on the cusp of yet another revolution in medical cannabis, and that producers and innovators will certainly find ways to develop powerful new medicine from terpenes, much like what has occurred with CBD’s.

A final quote from the report on the significance of today’s research in validating the medical efficacy of cannabis.

“Human beings have used Cannabis or Cannabis products in various forms for thousands of years and references to therapeutic use of the plant are found in Hieratic script on papyri dated around 1700 BC.2 More recent reports have reviewed the history and characteristics of the materials and determined their clinical and biological properties.” [Source]

The United States stands almost entirely alone among developed nations in adding industrial silicofluorides to its drinking water—imposing the community-wide measure without informed consent. Globally, roughly 5% of the population consumes chemically fluoridated water, but more people in the U.S. drink fluoride-adulterated water than in all other countries combined. Within the U.S., just under a third (30%) of local water supplies are not fluoridated; these municipalities have either held the practice at bay since fluoridation’s inception or have won hard-fought battles to halt water fluoridation.

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

Dozens of studies and reviews—including in top-tier journals such as The Lancet—have shown that fluoride is neurotoxic and lowers children’s IQ.

The fluoride chemicals added to drinking water are unprocessed toxic waste products—captured pollutants from Florida’s phosphate fertilizer industry or unregulated chemical imports from China. The chemicals undergo no purification before being dumped into drinking water and often harbor significant levels of arsenic and other heavy metal contamination; one researcher describes this unavoidable contamination as a “regulatory blind spot that jeopardizes any safe use of fluoride additives.”

Dozens of studies and reviews—including in top-tier journals such as The Lancet—have shown that fluoride is neurotoxic and lowers children’s IQ. Fluoride is also associated with a variety of other health risks in both children and adults. However, U.S. officialdom persists in making hollow claims that water fluoridation is safe and beneficial, choosing to ignore even its own research! A multimillion-dollar longitudinal study published in Environmental Health Perspectivesin September, 2017, for example, was largely funded by the National Institutes of Health and National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences—and the seminal study revealed a strong relationship between fluoride exposure in pregnant women and lowered cognitive function in offspring. Considered in the context of other research, the study’s implications are, according to the nonprofit Fluoride Action Network, “enormous”—“a cannon shot across the bow of the 80 year old practice of artificial fluoridation.”

According to declassified government documents summarized by Project Censored, Manhattan Project scientists discovered early on that fluoride was a leading health hazard to bomb program workers and surrounding communities. A Little History

During World War II, fluoride (a compound formed from the chemical element fluorine) came into large-scale production and use as part of the Manhattan Project. According to declassified government documents summarized by Project Censored, Manhattan Project scientists discovered early on that fluoride was a “leading health hazard to bomb program workers and surrounding communities.” In order to stave off lawsuits, government scientists “embarked on a campaign to calm the social panic about fluoride…by promoting its usefulness in preventing tooth decay.”

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

To prop up its “exaggerated claims of reduction in tooth decay,” government researchers began carrying out a series of poorly designed and fatally flawed community trials of water fluoridation in a handful of U.S. cities in the mid-1940s. In a critique decades later, a University of California-Davis statistician characterized these early agenda-driven fluoridation trials as “especially rich in fallacies, improper design, invalid use of statistical methods, omissions of contrary data, and just plain muddleheadedness and hebetude.” As one example, a 15-year trial launched in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1945 used a nearby city as a non-fluoridated control, but after the control city began fluoridating its own water supply five years into the study, the design switched from a comparison with the non-fluoridated community to a before-and-after assessment of Grand Rapids. Fluoridation’s proponents admitted that this change substantially “compromised” the quality of the study.

In 1950, well before any of the community trials could reach any conclusions about the systemic health effects of long-term fluoride ingestion, the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) endorsed water fluoridation as official public health policy, strongly encouraging communities across the country to adopt the unproven measure for dental caries prevention. Describing this astonishingly non-evidence-based step as “the Great Fluoridation Gamble,” the authors of the 2010 book, The Case Against Fluorideargue that:

“Not only was safety not demonstrated in anything approaching a comprehensive and scientific study, but also a large number of studies implicating fluoride’s impact on both the bones and the thyroid gland were ignored or downplayed” (p. 86).

In 2015, Newsweek magazine not only agreed that the scientific rationale for putting fluoride in drinking water was not as “clear-cut” as once thought but also shared the “shocking” finding of a more recent Cochrane Collaboration review, namely, that there is no evidence to support the use of fluoride in drinking water.

Bad Science and Powerful Politics

The authors of The Case Against Fluoride persuasively argue that “bad science” and “powerful politics” are primary factors explaining why government agencies continue to defend the indefensible practice of water fluoridation, despite abundant evidence that it is unsafe both developmentally and after “a lifetime of exposure to uncontrolled doses.” Comparable to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s bookThimerosal: Let the Science Speak, which summarizes studies that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and “credulous journalists swear don’t exist,” The Case Against Fluoride is an extensively referenced tour de force, pulling together hundreds of studies showing evidence of fluoride-related harm.

… death rates in the ten most fluoridated U.S. states are 5% to 26% higher than in the ten least fluoridated states, with triple the rate of Alzheimer’s disease.

The research assembled by the book’s authors includes studies on fluoride biochemistry; cancer; fluoride’s effects on the brain, endocrine system and bones; and dental fluorosis. With regard to the latter, public health agencies like to define dental fluorosis as a purely cosmetic issue involving “changes in the appearance of tooth enamel,” but the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology (IAOMT)—a global network of dentists, health professionals and scientists dedicated to science-based biological dentistry—describes the damaged enamel and mottled and brittle teeth that characterize dental fluorosis as “the first visible sign of fluoride toxicity.”

The important 2017 study that showed decrements in IQ following fluoride exposure during pregnancy is far from the only research sounding the alarm about fluoride’s adverse developmental effects. In his 2017 volumePregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix, John D. MacArthur pulls together hundreds of studies linking fluoride to premature birth and impaired neurological development (93 studies), preelampsia (77 studies) and autism (110 studies). The book points out that rates of premature birth are “unusually high” in the United States. At the other end of the lifespan, MacArthur observes that death rates in the ten most fluoridated U.S. states are 5% to 26% higher than in the ten least fluoridated states, with triple the rate of Alzheimer’s disease. A 2006 report by the National Research Council warned that exposure to fluoride might increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

The Word is Out

Pregnancy and Fluoride Do Not Mix shows that the Institute of Medicine, National Research Council, Harvard’s National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Toxicology Program all are well aware of the substantial evidence of fluoride’s developmental neurotoxicity, yet no action has been taken to warn pregnant women. Instead, scientists with integrity, legal professionals and the public increasingly are taking matters into their own hands. A Citizens Petition submitted in 2016 to the EPA under the Toxic Substances Control Act requested that the EPA “exercise its authority to prohibit the purposeful addition of fluoridation chemicals to U.S. water supplies.” This request—the focus of a lawsuit to be argued in court later in 2019—poses a landmark challenge to the dangerous practice of water fluoridation and has the potential to end one of the most significant chemical assaults on our children’s developing bodies and brains.

The idea of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) is no longer taboo, and has been officially verified by multiple governments around the world including the United States.  These objects are often tracked on military radars and seen by the pilots who are sent out to take a closer look. There have been millions of pages of UFO related documents declassified detailing these encounters, hundreds of testimonies from credible people within military, intelligence, and government agencies exposed, and tons of electro-optical data and physical evidence released. You can read about some examples of military encounters in more detail here.

In 1979, General Carlos Cavero told the world that “everything” has been “in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world. On a global scale, the nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon” and there is “an international exchange of data.” There are tons of similar, reputable statements like this out there, including the following one made by the first CIA director, Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter: “Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” (source)

Despite the vast amount of evidence in support of extraterrestrial and UFO phenomena, the ‘secrecy campaign’ is still ongoing, influencing the minds of the masses and convincing people that it’s all a “conspiracy theory.” Perception manipulation is a tool frequently used by the ‘powers that be’ in all areas, especially within the political realm.

Whether it be a former Chairman of the Royal Navy telling us that “there is a serious possibility that we are being visited, and have been visited by people from outer space,” a former Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Barry Goldwater stating that “I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified,” or an Apollo 14 astronaut  saying that  “yes, there have been crashed craft and bodies recovered,” there is no shortage of high-ranking insiders attesting to the reality of this phenomenon.

However, this goes far beyond mere witness testimonies.

One of the biggest mouthpieces for “the establishment,”  The New York Times, admitted something that the establishment has been concealing for years: UFOs are real. The Times broke the story about a secret Pentagon program about UFOs, but any UFO researcher knows these programs are far more in-depth, expensive, and expansive than anything that’s described within the article.

This was then followed by a Washington Post article written by Christopher Mellon, a member of To The Stars who spent 20 years in the federal government, holding prestigious roles including the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Clinton and Bush Administrations. To The Stars is a company founded by the musician Tom Delonge, which aims to inspire a newfound appreciation for ‘the profound yet unresolved mysteries involving science and the universe,’ including UFO phenomena.

All of a sudden, after these articles, UFOs were perceived as ‘real’ within mainstream media. Many have criticized Tom Delonge and To The Stars, claiming that the company is a deep state operation looking to bring about misinformation about UFOs. Some will post pictures of Tom Delonge with John Podesta, for example, and claim that he is ‘one of them.’ However, I do not believe these accusations.

It’s similar to Harvey Weinstein being pictured with Oprah. A single image doesn’t make Oprah a rapist or a supporter of sexual misconduct, and we shouldn’t judge others based on a photograph or who they spend their time with. Tom might be completely unaware of Podesta’s reputation, as it’s quite clear his main interest is the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon. Delonge has done nothing but good for the UFO movement and has inspired massive awareness surrounding the subject.

Perhaps we should be more concerned with the transparency of the US government than with Tom Delonge’s motives. So far, the US government has proven that they cannot be trusted when it comes to being transparent about this subject. This is why it’s ok to have concerns about where this mainstream disclosure movement is headed, and whether or not it’s rooted in good will.

It’s evident that politicians are becoming more and more persuaded and coerced by corporations and the global elite, something Roosevelt referred to as the “invisible government” that “sits enthroned” behind the “ostensible government.” (source)

Another great quote:

The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. – John F. Hylan, Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925, (source)(source)

It remains to be seen where To The Stars will take this, but I fully believe that if there are some sort of ‘sinister’ intentions within To The Stars, Tom and most of the team probably have no idea about it. So far things are looking good, and they’ve done nothing but create awareness.

The team he assembled is actually pretty extraordinary, as their backgrounds are quite impressive, and Tom deserves all the credibility he’s garnered. Sure, there is no evidence that his claims are true (like the image pictured below), but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t entertain his thoughts, especially given the fact that thousands of similar encounters have been reported. Here is one of many great examples of verified encounters with documented proof, in case you were curious.

Why Would Multiple Nuclear Attack Submarines Do This?

As an avid researcher into the field of UFOs for nearly half of my life, I can confidently say that not only are there unidentified crafts performing maneuvers that defy our known laws of aerospace and physics, but these crafts have been spotted entering and exiting our oceans as well. This is something that’s still new to many UFO researchers just entering the field now.

I’d like to highlight one thing here. After decades of military encounters, it seems the protocol for multiple governments is to try and shoot these crafts down.

Below is a quote from Dr. Steven Greer, creator of the most popular documentary on Netflix last year, Unacknowledged. Greer is well known for the Disclosure Project, where he amassed hundreds of military/intelligence personnel with verified backgrounds to come together and share their testimonies and experiences regarding UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence.

Below he shares a perspective many may not know about:

 

Here is a great quote from Paul Hellyer,

Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about where we were headed and offered to help. But instead we, or at least some of us, interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. The inevitable result was that some of our planes were lost, but how many were due to retaliation, and how many were a result of our own stupidity, is a moot point.” (source)

By the way, “the preservation of the planet” (Colonel Ross Dedrickson, from this interview with Dr. Greer) is a common theme in extraterrestrial lore. However, that is not to say that some malevolent forces aren’t at work as well. Who really knows!

If you’re interested in learning more, here’s a related CE Article: “This Planet Will Be Theirs” – Professor Explains His Startling Conclusions About Alien Abductions

Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England, and the former curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13, outlined what some of the UK’s documents say regarding this type of technology.

These documents reveal how the RAF expressed great interest in finding UFOs to help come up with new and innovative ways to become their enemies during the Cold War. Apparently, they were gathering evidence that other nations had collected this technology. Having been an avid researcher into the field myself for more than a decade, I can confidently say that stories of crash retrievals of unknown aerial objects are abundant–Roswell is certainly not the only example.

Dr. Clark told The Daily Mail,

Even though they have been partly censored they can’t conceal the fact the UK military were interested in capturing UFO technology or what they coyly refer to as ‘novel weapon technology’…And the files reveal they were desperate to capture this technology – wherever it came from – before the Russians or the Chinese got hold of it first….Although this was 1997, Russia was still regarded as an undefeated enemy with a weapons programme regarded as a threat to the West.

The Takeaway

What makes us think this planet belongs to us? What right do we have to shoot down intelligently controlled crafts that may have been around for decades? Clearly, if there was a threat associated with them or some type of ‘armageddon’ scenario, it would have happened already.

All the global military industrial complex wants to do is find out what’s going on and what’s inside these crafts, even if that means disregarding basic morals.  These are not actions we should be proud of, as they highlight just how difficult it may be for any potential outside visitors to explore our planet.

Does the elite actually care about the preservation of our planet? Or do they only care about looking out for their own interests, regardless of the implications their actions have on others?

The extraterrestrial/UFO phenomenon truly leaves no area of humanity untouched. The implications on spirituality and human consciousness are huge, and it’s a topic that will eventually force us to take a closer look at who we are, where we came from, how we treat our planet, and why we are so much more than the bodies we inhabit.

Mercury is one of the most toxic substances known to the human race, and any scientist or doctor would agree. That being said, there is a dangerous scientific theory that plagues the medial industry: That it’s somehow ok to be exposed to ‘trace amounts’ of mercury. This makes absolutely no sense, because when it comes to the toxicity of substances like mercury, any amount can have a detrimental effect on human biology. Sure, you may not die, but mercury poisoning is very real and can have significant long-term health effects. And how big is a ‘trace’ amount of mercury compared to the size of a neuron or a neuronal pathway, anyways?

What’s really concerning is that mercury is still added to many vaccines, including some flu shots as well as some vaccines that are administered to the elderly and those in third world countries. The bioaccumulation of these substances, including after being given a vaccine, has never been studied. Heavy metal contamination is one of the biggest problems today, yet the medical industry completely ignores it, thus there is very little awareness surrounding this issue.

In nature, toxic metals generally are bound with other elements rather than being present in their pure form. However, with the advent of large-scale industrial processes to extract metals from naturally occurring compounds, humans let the genie out of the bottle, contributing significantly to the distribution of mercury, aluminum and other heavy metals in the environment. When released from nature’s semi-protective hold, these “invariably toxic” metals wreak havoc on living systems, including humans, animals and plants alike.

Modern-day scientists have been amassing evidence of mercury’s toxicity for decades, with a growing focus in recent years on the metal’s association with neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A new review article in the multidisciplinary journal Environmental Research pulls together a wide body of literature with the aim of summing up current research and emerging trends in mercury toxicology. Geir Bjørklund, the study’s lead author, is the founder of Norway’s non-profit Council for Nutritional and Environmental Medicine and has published prolifically on topics related to heavy metals, autoimmune disorders and ASD. – Robert F Kennedy Jr.

Mercury is present everywhere in our environment, and exposure to mercurial compounds is now widespread, despite feeble attempts to ban some uses. Bjørklund et al.’s review covers all three categories of mercury: elemental, organic and inorganic. Exposure to volatile elemental mercury can come about as a result of occupational contact or vapor from dental amalgam fillings. Organic mercury—the most frequent form of exposure, according to Bjørklund and colleagues—exists as methylmercury (in fish) and ethylmercury (in the vaccine preservative thimerosal). Coal-fired power plants send inorganic mercury into the environment, where the toxic metal works its way up the marine food chain. Mercury plays no constructive metabolic role whatsoever, and humans have not evolved effective mechanisms to excrete it. Children with ASD have a particularly hard time detoxifying and excreting mercury.

Below is a video  from the University of Calgary, in which researchers look at a neuron isolated from snail brain tissue. In the video, it’s displaying normal, linear growth. Growth “cones” in all species have identical structure and behavioural characteristics. So, regardless of the species, this is what mercury does to the body.

The Vaccine Issue

Mercury has been used in vaccines for decades, and what’s worse is that there have been no appropriate safety tests, it’s simply presumed to be safe. Here is a quote from Dr. Jose G. Dores, a professor at the University of Brasilia’s Department of Nutritional Sciences who recently published a study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health which further emphasizes my point. In the study, he offers the following observation:

“Despite their long use as active agents of medicines and fungicides, the safety levels of these substances have never been determined, either for animals or for adult humans—much less for fetuses, newborns, infants, and children.”  (source)

A couple of years ago, Robert F. Kennedy Junior and Robert DiNero actually offered a $100,000 reward for any scientist, journalist or doctor who could present one paper or proof that mercury is safe to inject into children. At that conference, they brought more than 100 peer-reviewed studies showing how it isn’t.

A fairly recent Meta-Analysis published in the Journal Bio Med Research International points out what all of these other studies did as well:

 “The studies upon which the CDC relies and over which it exerted some level of control report that there is no increased risk of autism from exposure to organic Hg in vaccines, and some of these studies even reported that exposure to Thimerosal appeared to decrease the risk of autism. These six studies are in sharp contrast to research conducted by independent researchers over the past 75+ years that have consistently found Thimerosal to be harmful. As mentioned in the Introduction section, many studies conducted by independent investigators have found Thimerosal to be associated with neurodevelopmental disorders. Considering that there are many studies conducted by independent researchers which show a relationship between Thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders, the results of the six studies examined in this review, particularly those showing the protective effects of Thimerosal, should bring into question the validity of the methodology used in the studies.” (source)

Do Injected Metals Stay In The Body?

Scientists recently discovered that injected aluminum from vaccines gets carried by macrophages (a type of white blood cell) and transported into various organs throughout the body, eventually accumulating in the brain, where it can still be detected one year after injection (as found in animal models). This study was the first of it’s kind, as pharmaceutical studies have never actually looked to see where the aluminum goes.

After this, the scientists opened the brains of multiple autistic people and found the highest brain-aluminum content ever measured in brain tissue. If you inject your child with a vaccine that contains aluminum, it does not exit the body. This implicates aluminum in a variety of neurodevelopment disorders early and later on in life. It also makes you wonder about the bioaccumulation of all of the other ingredients often found in vaccines such as mercury, aborted human fetal cells, serum from aborted calf fetus blood, cells from army worms, cells from monkey kidneys, cells from dog kidneys, mouse brain, chicken embryos, gelatine, Formaldehyde, MSG, egg protein, antibiotics, nanoparticles that pollute almost all vaccines, and more. Keep in mind that all vaccines have different ingredients within them, so these would only be found in some vaccines, not all. 

You can read more about aluminum and access those studies in the article linked below:

Brain Imaging Shows Autistic Brains Contain High Amounts of Aluminum

The Takeaway & The Solutions

The takeaway here is to recognize that it’s ok if you choose to not vaccinate your child. There are multiple reasons more and more parents are doing this.

The idea that vaccines aren’t entirely safe gained a lot of attention when one of the lead authors of a 2004 study came forward. His name is Dr. William Thompson, a senior researcher at the CDC who co-authored one of the most widely cited studies to debunk any link between the MMR vaccine and autism. The study allegedly found:

“The evidence is now convincing that the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine does not cause autism or any particular subtypes of autism spectrum disorder.”(source)

10 years later, he countered the original study, arguing:

“The [CDC] co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the [MMR vaccine] study. The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.” (source)

So, it’s not only the science, but the corruption involved too.

If you have been vaccinated or you have chosen to vaccinate your children, it’s important to note that you can use cilantro, spirulina, and other natural substances to detox heavy metals from the body. It simply takes a little research on your part, but it’s not hard to find.

At the end of the day, more and more parents are choosing to not vaccinate their children. The idea that unvaccinated children pose a threat to vaccinated children is completely false, because that’s not how herd immunity works. Nevertheless, the concept of herd immunity is often used to coerce parents into vaccinating their children.

It’s wonderful to see more health conscious parents, and I do hope this trend continues to grow. We must address heavy metal contamination in our environment and create awareness around this subject, especially as the medical industry and Big Pharma continue to ignore it.

If you have been distracted and bogged down with the necessities of living day to day, you are not alone. The purpose for distractions is so that you fail to see the change that are taking place around you.

Without fanfare, a new world order is taking shape under Agenda 2019: Loss of Identity. You may have not heard of this agenda but you can follow the crumbs that have been left over the last year in the headlines. These crumbs are disclosure.

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

Many changes have already taken place in California to set the stage for the rest of the country. California rolled out the country’s first vaccine mandates (see SB 277) that remove philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions, as well as informed consent. Despite Americans voicing their opposition to the fascist law, the mandate stands. Currently, all state legislatures across the country are following California’s lead in introducing similar bills which include denying tax exemptions for children not fully vaccinated.

Understand that the agenda to conform humanity is well underway. And Hollywood actors are working overtime to normalize and influence you, starting with the PR stunt that played out in the audience during the 2019 Golden Globe Awards. This mock ritual of forced flu vaccination by “white coats” armed with syringes even included dissenters, in Keith Urban, who pretended to be outraged. All an act to prepare everyone for the main act, the U.N Healthy People 2020 Act. More on that below.

The New Rome

Global mandates are coming. They fall under the auspices of the United Nations (U.N.). The U.N. seeks to concentrate power for a select group who are represented by world leaders to do their bidding. They have no use for plebeian identities. Plebeians are citizens of Rome. In ancient Rome, these citizens were not members of the elite patrician, senatorial, or equestrian classes. Plebeians were the backbone of the country: the farmers, bakers, builders or craftsmen, who did the work to support their families and the country. Plebeians still form the backbone of this country, because the Roman Empire still exerts its power.

Rome never fell. The city of Rome has only expanded its power, thanks to all of us. The New Rome goes under cover as the U.N. The U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals, are part of the 2030 U.N. Agenda. There are 17 U.N. goals, all meant to UNdo the freedoms that modern plebians have enjoyed since America was founded under the Declaration of Independence in July, 1776. If you have been asleep, you are now waking up to the New Rome. Like a thief in the night, change has arrived.

Lost Identity Under the Guise of ‘Unity’

Lost Identity is hidden because it falls under the mask of “unity” rhetoric. Unity, under the guise of uniformity and conformity, looks like a genderless society. Genderless means males and females no longer exist. When males and females no longer exist, true humans no longer exist. The creation of this society is part of the U.N. Agenda as Goal #5 Gender Equality.

The UN message is this:

While the world has achieved progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education between girls and boys), women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world.

 

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.

Note: the words”progress toward” means that the end objective of equality is never achieved because true equality between men and women already exists. As humans, equality is inborn. There is no law written that changes the truth that we are all born equal.

However, the U.N. ignores truth and plans to implement “new legal frameworks” to bestow rights, which are really privileges, to end gender-based discrimination in every country. Privileges are not inherent rights. What does the U.N goal look like in reality? The answer is disclosed in the news headlines, which are codes that set the stage for the outcome. The UN counts on you not seeing the Big Picture to connect the dots to the loss of your identity.

In the headlines, in case you missed it, here are the dots to connect for yourself:

The UN works its way through the fashion industry, too. The U.N. wants you to know that clothes have no gender!

Hollywood celebrities, led by Celine Dion, are blowingSmart Dust everywhere to cast their spells on the plebeians to let everyone know that babies are non-binary and should dress appropriately in gender-neutral clothing.

The Internet of Things

To tie things together, the Telecom industry is rolling out 5G, in addition to 4G, as an integral component of the Lost of Identity Agenda. By its structure, it tells you that you will assimilate and resistance is futile. 5G, or Fifth Generation, is less about communication speed and more about weather control and mind control. After all, once your mind is not your own, you can accept anything. See my 2017 article, Are we losing identity to the hive?

You will be connected as part of the Internet of Things. Remember, you are no longer human, you are a thing. RFID microchips are being implanted in people all over the world. More than 3000 Swedes have already tagged themselves with microchips. Others have been implanted without their permission …. well, they did sign a document but didn’t read the fine print. Microchips are small enough to also be injected via vaccines and breathed in via chemical fallout as “pollution.” Hospitals have been tagging babies with microchips through ankle bands for years. Why not, instead, add them in those first vaccines? Chips are marketed so employees, like those in Wisconsin who accepted the chip, will be able to merge with machines to open doors, log into computers, store health information. Your body is not only the property of the State, but now it is suddenly hackable, too. Just look at the number of accidents from those self-driving cars:

Self-driving car accidents will keep happening. We need to learn from them

Self-driving car Kills Pedestrian in Arizona: Where Robots Roam

Was Uber’s fatal driverless crash avoidable? 

Microchips and nanochips will place every American citizen on an electronic leash with the federal government holding the other end. Short of the chip, there will be the National ID card which will likely contain your fingerprints, a scan of your iris, and even your DNA profile. This national card will allow pleibians to be tracked while they travel. These agendas also tie to food. The U.N. wants food conformity and are encouraging everyone to eat crickets! See more about The Cricket Devolution, here.

One world. One currency. One food source. One mind.

Go Rogue!

The UN message is only real if you make it so. When you look at your body as a divine creation, is it stamped with the logo of the U.N.? No.

In Nature, which is where you live, there is something called balance. We see that life always strives for balance, as part of nature. This attempt toward balance shows up in the news headlines as one or two rogue states, which attempt to buck the system that binds them to conformity. For instance: South Dakota may ban gender identify instruction in public schools. In Virginia, one teacher refused to use trans-pronouns.

In Indiana, a school teacher who refuses to call trans-students by their chosen name says, “I’m fine to teach students with other beliefs, but the fact that teachers are being compelled to speak a certain way is the scary thing.”

If you can know your own mind, you can control your own body.

The loss of identity means we conform to a mindset dictated by an entity that is not human, known as the UN, aka Rome. Under a genderless society, where male and female become obsolete, there are also no inherent rights to choose for yourself. The group mind will choose for you, which is controlled through a chip by the Roman elite.

Without gender, there is no need and no way to reproduce. Everyone becomes part of a blob identity. From this new set-point, those who wish express themselves differently will be deemed U.N.-American, U.N.-Patriotic, and U.N.-Acceptable. The same will be true for those who choose not to vaccinate.

Speaking of vaccination, get ready for the U.N. Healthy People 2020 Act, a cradle-to-grave Act where everyone will be rolling up their sleeves to get the shots deemed necessary by Rome. These medical records will be recorded on your chip. No celebrities needed. Hollywood’s efforts will have had its effect. New Romanesque laws being tested in Australia would punish vaccine skeptics with ten years in prison. No joke.

As the Loss of Identity Agenda becomes normalized, be aware of who you are. Are you a cog in the wheel of a genderless, mindless system heading toward Artificial Intelligence? Are you a citizen of Rome? If not, you better find a safely and quietly way to exit the Empire. The time for revolution has passed.
