In Christopher Nolan’s epic 2014 science fiction film Interstellar, a rogue splinter group of scientists constituting the collapsed remnants of NASA hatch a plan to save Earth from environmental collapse by searching for potentially habitable planets in a distant galaxy. They get there by traveling through a wormhole and using the gravitational slingshot velocity of a massive black hole.

Though it’s been a recurring theme in science fiction for decades, a black hole itself has never been considered a feasible form of space travel because scientists have always believed that the mysterious tidal forces inside the event horizon would spaghettify and crush anything that dared to enter it.

But scientists now say new simulation models are suggesting that a rotating black hole, which contains a unique “mass inflation singularity,” may actually offer safe passage to another part of the galaxy—or a different galaxy altogether.

The team of physicists from UMass Dartmouth and Georgia Gwinnett College say their simulations show the singularity at the center of a large, rotating black hole could actually facilitate a “gentle” passage through rips in spacetime.

Physicist Gaurav Khanna, his colleague Lior Burko, and his student Caroline Mallary were inspired by the film Interstellar to test whether its central character named Cooper, played by Matthew McConaughey, could have theoretically survived a descent into the film’s fictional black hole, Gargantua.

Mallary built a computer simulation exploring the physics involved and concluded:

The effects of the singularity in the context of a rotating black hole would result in rapidly increasing cycles of stretching and squeezing on the spacecraft. But for very large black holes like Gargantua, the strength of this effect would be very small. So, the spacecraft and any individuals on board would not detect it.”

Scientific speculation concerning exotic properties of black holes has increased in recent years. A 2016 study examined the possibility of five-dimensional black holes shaped like rings which violate the laws of physics, including Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Another paper posited that black holes deposit matter into the far future.

Realistically, we likely won’t know anything substantial about the logistics of traveling the stars via black holes within our lifetime. Humans are still trying to visit the nearest planet in our solar system and the nearest black hole, Sagittarius A*—which lurks 27,000 light years away at the center of the Milky Way—is not even remotely reachable without propulsion technologies that are decades, if not centuries, from implementation.

However, within our lifetime we may learn more about how quantum gravity works inside of black holes—buoyed by new advanced telescopes and research methods—which may tell us if it’s physically possible for hyperspace travel using black holes. And even though we can’t do it, perhaps others in the universe can.

It’s truly astonishing how the health concerns regarding wireless radiation, which are firmly established in scientific literature, are often ignored and not addressed within the mainstream media. Given the fact that mainstream media controls a large amount of people’s perception and awareness with regards to multiple issues, the health concerns regarding 5G are still largely off the radar on the minds of many.

We’ve seen many examples of how federal health regulatory agencies have been completely compromised by corporations, and the new 5G issue appears no different at the moment. This is how certain products and services get approved without ever really going through any appropriate safety testing.

A great example of this type of corporate corruption in the United States, for example, was outlined a few years ago by a group of more than a dozen scientists from within the CDC who put out a public statement, while remaining anonymous, outlining the big problem of corporate influence and the effect it is having on health policy decisions. They were referred to as the Spider Papers.  The authors heavily stressed just how big of a problem this truly is.

Fast Internet, But Huge Health Risks

One of my latest articles on the subject of 5G brought to light a report published by Martin L. Pall, a PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, who stated that “Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.”

These health concerns are exactly why a Belgian government minister announced that Brussels is halting its 5G plans. Even before the 5G rollout, multiple countries banned Wifi & Cell Phones around schools, young children & fetuses.

With so much information and initiatives out there being created, it really goes to show that we do no live in a democracy at all. Various “things” are imposed on the populace without our knowing, and politicians never address the real concerns that the people have. Take Donald Trump for example, who recently stated that “5G is a race we will win.” On CETV we analyzed why Trump is pushing so hard for 5G, you can watch the segment here. I also recently wrote an article regarding Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau and 5G, where he also completely ignores the well known health concerns.

The truth is, doctors have been treating patients from over-exposure to wireless radiation for a while, despite the fact that many out there still, unfortunately, believe it to be a mental condition, which is misguided given all of the published science and clear harm that’s being inflicted. Scientists and doctors recently came together at Queen’s park in Toronto, Ontario, urging the provincial government to take steps to protect public health before the roll out of wireless 5G – the next generation of cell phone technology. That being said, 5G tech is already rolled out, a lot of people are using it for their internet connection, for example.

You can watch the full hearing below.

“My clinic is already assessing patients from across Ontario who are sensitive to microwave radiation from their wireless devices including cell phones, Wi-Fi, and an increasing number of smart appliances,” said Dr. Riina Bray, Medical Director of the Environmental Health Clinic at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto. “We expect wireless 5G to add to this burden.”

Scientists and doctors from dozens of countries are now coming together to warn their governments about what is going on. The only issue is that governments have been compromised by corporations, but awareness is still charging ahead. The initial 5G infrastructure in Ontario is set to begin in the Toronto to Montreal corridor. Without this implementation, daily human exposure to microwave radiation is already much higher than a trillion times higher than it was before cell phones.

Dr. Anthony Miller, Professor Emeritus with the University of Toronto, and adviser to the International Agency for Research on Cancer said: “Many scientists worldwide now believe that radiofrequency radiation should be elevated to a Class One human carcinogen, on the same list as Cigarettes, X-Rays, and Asbestos.”

The doctors advised the province that increased health care costs can be avoided if the government takes precautions to protect the public from exposure to wireless 5G technology.

As always, if you want to find out more information and science about this subject, as well as ways you can reduce our exposure and protect yourself, a great place to start is with the Environmental Health Trust.

The Takeaway

I am a big believer in the mind-body connection, some say it’s simple as, “if you don’t believe it’s harming you, it’s not.” Although that thought does have truth in it, I believe that type of mind-body effect, the ability to alter your own biology amidst environmental toxins, requires deep meditation and practice. We are so heavily bombarded with this stuff regularly that it’s simply not reasonable to overcome these effects while keeping up with daily life.

This why when highly skilled mind-body practitioners are used by scientists in the lab, still only small effects are observed. At the end of the day, there is a reason why various rates of disease ailments are on the rise, and it’s quite clear that our environment is the problem.

Again, you can protect yourself, your home by reducing your exposure. You can even purchase EMF protective paint, there are a number of ways to protect yourself but at the end of the day this is a big problem, and awareness is key. In an age of extreme censorship and a lack of coverage by mainstream media on the most important issues on our planet, it’s up to us to continue speaking up, and doing so in a credible way.

Note: This is Part V in a series of articles adapted from the second Children’s Health Defense eBook: Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health. The first eBook, The Sickest Generation: The Facts Behind the Children’s Health Crisis and Why It Needs to End, described how children’s health began to worsen dramatically in the late 1980s following fateful changes in the childhood vaccine schedule.]

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has issued annual vaccine recommendations for the U.S. civilian population since 1995. ACIP works in partnership with leading medical trade organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American College of Physicians (ACP) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).

ACIP’s industry-beholden membership roster reads like a “who’s who” of the individuals and organizations who spearhead the nation’s vaccine business: fifteen voting members from leading medical schools, children’s hospitals and universities; eight ex officio members from federal agencies such as the FDA and the Department of Defense (DOD); and thirty non-voting representatives serving as liaisons with entities ranging from Sanofi to Cigna and Planned Parenthood (with the latter being a leading promoter and provider of HPV vaccines).

A tangled web

The longstanding conflicts of interest that hold ACIP members captive to pharmaceutical industry interests are well known and well documented. In the early 2000s, a four-month investigation by United Press International (UPI) identified “a web of close ties” and financial entanglements between ACIP members and vaccine companies, including:

  • Sharing vaccine patents
  • Owning vaccine company stock
  • Getting research funding or money to monitor vaccine testing
  • Receiving funding for academic departments or appointments

According to an investigation by the Committee on Government Reform in 2000, the CDC not only frequently grants waivers but also looks the other way when ACIP members provide incomplete financial disclosure.

In 2003, Congressman Dan Burton described the “paradox” of the CDC “routinely allow[ing] scientists with blatant conflicts of interest to serve on influential advisory committees that make recommendations on new vaccines, as well as policy matters,” even though “these same scientists have financial ties, academic affiliations, and other vested interests in the products and companies for which they are supposed to be providing unbiased oversight.”

As per the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), individuals appointed to ACIP must file an Office of Government Ethics form and annually update a financial disclosure report. Voting members also are expected to publicly disclose “all vaccine-related interests and work” at the beginning of each ACIP meeting. However, the CDC has shown itself only too willing to issue conflicts of interest waivers if it ascertains (as it routinely does) that “the need for the individual’s services outweighs the potential for conflicts of interest created by the financial interests involved.” According to an investigation by the Committee on Government Reform in 2000, the CDC not only frequently grants waivers but also looks the other way when ACIP members provide incomplete financial disclosure. Moreover, a loophole allows a considerable amount of ACIP’s work to get done in Work Groups whose members are exempt from the FACA procedural conflict-of-interest requirements, even though the Work Groups “serve a key scientific role in support of vaccine policy development.”

Golden ticket

After ACIP makes its vaccine recommendations, the CDC publishes them in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The recommendations (in CDC officials’ own words) “have [a] major impact on immunization policies and practice in the United States and in other countries.” Stated another way, ACIP’s “imprimatur” is a “golden ticket” for vaccine manufacturers. Vaccines on the CDC’s schedule become virtually mandatory for American children attending a “public or private elementary, middle or secondary school, child care center, nursery school, family day care home or developmental center.”

At present, the childhood vaccine schedule requires almost six dozen doses through age 18 for sixteen diseases.

Vaccine exemptions are currently available to varying degrees in 47 states for medical, religious or philosophical reasons. Reflecting the public’s growing concerns about vaccine safety, the use of non-medical exemptions increased by 19% from 2009 to 2013. However, all three types of exemptions are under aggressive attack. Supported by pharmaceutical industry lobbying and CDC edicts, 12 of 13 exemption-related bills signed into law between 2011 and 2017 “limited the ability to exempt,” erecting more legal barriers for concerned parents.

Within the no-liability context of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), the CDC and ACIP played a major role in opening the floodgates for the childhood vaccine schedule’s dramatic expansion. In the early 1980s, children received three vaccines for seven illnesses—two combination vaccines (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis and measles-mumps-rubella) and a polio vaccine—totaling two dozen doses by age 18. In the decade following 1989 (beginning soon after the NCVIA’s implementation), the CDC packed multiple doses of several more vaccines onto the childhood schedule, including those for Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), hepatitis B (on the day of birth) and varicella (chickenpox), as well as a rotavirus vaccine (withdrawn a year after its introduction). Next, in the first decade of the 2000s, the CDC recommended an even larger batchof new vaccines, going after not just children but also adolescents and adults: hepatitis A, human papillomavirus (HPV), meningococcal conjugate, pneumococcal conjugate, rotavirus (again) and zoster (shingles), along with an adult tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis booster (Tdap) and a massive expansion of influenza vaccine recommendations for all ages. At present, the childhood vaccine schedule requires almost six dozen doses through age 18 for sixteen diseases.

Profits and patents

The CDC is a major player in the vaccine marketplace, buying half of all childhood vaccines in the U.S. and then selling them to contracted public health agencies through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program, which pushes free and low-cost vaccines on indigent children. Over the past three decades, the CDC’s vaccine purchases have increased 15-fold as the average cost of fully vaccinating a child to age 18 rose from $100 to $2192—while vaccine companies have raked in the profits.

… the large number of patents held by the CDC deserves an in-depth review to determine exactly what current financial relationships with vaccine makers now exist and what…current impact those revenue streams are likely having on vaccine safety positions.

The agency’s involvement with vaccine manufacturers also extends to patents, licensing agreements and collaboration on projects to develop new vaccines. In fact, the CDC and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) profit handsomely from their ownership or co-ownership with private sector partners of vaccine-related patents. An early 2017 analysis of Google Patents results showed that the CDC held 56 patents pertaining to various aspects of vaccine development, manufacturing, delivery and adjuvants. By May 2019, the search terms “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccines” retrieved 143 results in the Google Patents search engine, and a separate legal website displayed 10 screens worth of CDC patents, both vaccine- and non-vaccine-related. The author of the 2017 analysis suggests that the large number of patents held by the CDC “deserves an in-depth review to determine exactly what current financial relationships with vaccine makers now exist and what…current impact those revenue streams are likely having on vaccine safety positions.”

Gardasil is “perhaps the leading example of a new form of unconstrained government self-dealing, in arrangements whereby [HHS] can transfer technology to pharmaceutical partners, [and] simultaneously both approve and protect their partners’ technology licenses while also taking a cut of the profits.” It seems doubtful that agencies can remain impartial in the face of these profits.

At NIH, the influence on policy of profit-generating patents and licenses warrants similar scrutiny. According to one in-depth report, because “NIH frequently funds research with commercially valuable outcomes,” when NIH patents its inventions, the patents become “valuable commercial property” for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the patents’ owner. In 2006, researchers described commercial partners as “essential to the NIH’s role of helping to facilitate the formation of novel healthcare products for the public.”

Some of the key technologies underlying the development of the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix emerged from research patented by the NIH’s National Cancer Institute (NCI), which then licensed the technology to Merck, MedImmune and GlaxoSmithKline. By 2009, HPV licensing had become NIH’s top generator of royalty revenues. Gardasil is “perhaps the leading example of a new form of unconstrained government self-dealing, in arrangements whereby [HHS] can transfer technology to pharmaceutical partners, [and] simultaneously both approve and protect their partners’ technology licenses while also taking a cut of the profits.” It seems doubtful that agencies can remain impartial in the face of these profits.

NASA has just announced that it will be offering up the International Space Station as the most exclusive resort in the galaxy. The first tourists will be ale to buy their way into space as early as 2020, an effort which NASA says hopes to encourage private development of space technologies, and the beginning of the commercialization of space travel.

“We are so excited to be a part of NASA as our home and laboratory in space transitions into being accessible to expanded commercial and marketing opportunities, as well as to private astronauts.”~Astronaut Christina Koch

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

These so-called ‘private astronauts’ will be able to participate in missions lasting up to thirty days, offering a chance to not only relax in space, but to be part of the science team during ISS routines. The privately funded journeys into space will likely cost upwards of  $50 million per passenger.

“The spaceflight to the ISS will account for a large chunk of the cost.

Nasa typically pays around $75million for seats aboard a Soyuz spacecraft destined for the ISS, and even paid $82million per seat in 2015.

However, Nasa says seats aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon and/or Boeing CST-100 capsules will cost roughly $58million per seat.

It’s these capsules that will be used to ferry astronauts up to the ISS – but the cost continues to rise after the journey.

Keeping astronauts on board the ISS is a pricey business.

For instance, the regenerative life support and toilet costs $11,250 (£8,800) per astronaut each day.

And general supplies – like food and air – cost $22,500 (£17,500) per astronaut each day.

Nasa will get around $35,000 (£27,000) per night that a private astronaut spends on board the ISS.” [Source]

This move will mark the entry into space for a host of private companies and technologies ventures, which will ultimately help to fund NASA’s future projects while also creating an opportunity for a diverse range of development and ingenuity to jump-start space technologies.

“The missions will be part of Nasa’s broader plan to allow commercial companies into space. It hopes that private industry can develop the space technologies of the future, and help with its plans to return to the Moon in 2024, taking the first ever woman and the first person in decades.

 

Nasa hopes that the missions help test out and encourage future private missions into space, which could provide funding for further exploration in years to come.” [Source]

Julian Assange is seriously ill as he awaits extradition for charges that could land him in jail for the rest of his life. According to reportsfrom the Swedish and Danish speaking press last week, Assange is currently being held in the hospital ward of “Belmarsh,” the UK’s most notorious prison. Belmarsh has been called “Britain’s Guantanamo Bay,” since prisoners accused of terrorism are typically sent there.

Amid speculation about the embattled journalist’s health, independent journalist Gordon Dimmack received a letter that was attributed to Assange. Dimmack was one of many people to write Assange since his arrest, but he was nervous about revealing the response to the public because he was unsure if it was authentic.

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

However, in recent weeks, other supporters who have written to Assange have also received responses, all written in handwriting that bears an extremely close resemblance to that of the WikiLeaks founder, according to The Canary.

In the letter to Dimmack, Assange said:

“I have been isolated from all ability to prepare to defend myself: no laptop, no internet, ever, no computer, no library, so far, but even if I get access it will be just for half an hour, with everyone else, once a week. Just two visits a month and it takes weeks to get someone on the call list and a Catch-22 in getting their details to be security screened. Then all calls except lawyers, are recorded and calls are max 10 minutes and in a limited 30-min window each day in which all prisoners compete for the phone. And credit? Just a few pounds a week and no one can call in.

 

The other side? A superpower that has been preparing for 9 years with hundreds of people and untold millions spent on the case. I am defenseless and am counting on you and others of good character to save my life.

 

I am unbroken, albeit literally surrounded by murderers, but the days when I could read and speak and organize to defend myself, my ideals, and my people are over until I am free! Everyone else must take my place.

 

The US government, or rather, those regrettable elements in it that hate truth liberty and justice, want to cheat their way into my extradition and death, rather than letting the public hear the truth, for which I have won the highest awards in journalism and have been nominated 7 times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Truth, ultimately, is all we have.”

Below are images showing the handwritten letters:

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

On May 2nd, 2019, the first hearing regarding Assange’s extradition to the United States was held in London.

When the judge asked Assange if he consented to the extradition, Assange replied, “I do not wish to surrender myself for extradition for doing journalism that has won many, many awards and protected many people”.

On May 23rd, Assange was indicted on 17 new charges under the Espionage Act, which together carry a potential prison sentence of 175 years.

Last week, the official WikiLeaks Twitter account posted a statement saying that his health has “significantly deteriorated.”

WikiLeaks has grave concerns about the state of health of our publisher, Julian Assange, who has been moved to the health ward of Belmarsh prison. – See full statement: pic.twitter.com/HnZVks4kWj

— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) May 29, 2019

This week, photos were leaked to the press that showed Assange when he first arrived at the prison. The photos were taken by another prisoner and then somehow smuggled out of the jail.

In the photos, Assange can be seen looking sick, tired and malnourished, but in good spirits as he talked and joked with the other prisoners. However, according to the Gateway Pundit, who published the photographs, they were taken before Assange was admitted to the hospital ward.

The prisoner who leaked the photos to the press says that Assange is well liked among the other prisoners at the facility.

“Everyone’s got a million questions for him. He exposed the biggest scandals in the world. Whose side do you think someone in prison would be on? The government who have us locked up in here or a fellow prisoner who actually doesn’t deserve to be here?” he said.

On May 29, the Louisiana House unanimously voted to have the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality and the Department of Health study the effects of 5G technology on the environment and public health. The Louisiana legislature passed House Resolution 145 with a vote of 103 in favor and zero representatives voting against the measure. The bill calls for the results of the study to be submitted to the Louisiana House Committee on Natural Resources and Environment as well as the House Committee on Health and Welfare no later than sixty days prior to the start of the 2020 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature.

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

5G—or 5th generation cellular technology—is the name for the latest telecom technology upgrade. The new technology is expected to herald the beginning of Smart Cities, where driverless cars, pollution sensors, cell phones, traffic lights, and thousands of other devices interact in what is known as “The Internet of Things.” However, there have been a number of health and privacy concerns raised by opponents of the rapidly advancing 5G expansion. Louisiana is the first state to call for their own independent study of the technology. 

The language of HR 145 outlines the reasons that Louisiana state representatives felt the need to pass such a resolution. For example, the bill states that 5G “may pose risks to the environment due to increased radio-frequency radiation exposure,” and “peer-reviewed studies on this topic show the potential for wide-range effects,” therefore “a study is necessary to examine the advantages and risks associated with 5G technology.” The resolution also notes that “the insurance industry may have placed exclusions in policies to exempt damage caused by this technology,” a reference to reports that various insurance companies have excluded coverage related to damages acquired via electromagnetic frequency radiation.

The resolution also acknowledges that 5G technology requires small cellular towers—or small cells—to be placed every 200 to 500 feet—closer than existing towers—for the network to operate correctly. Not only is the installation of small cell sites taking place across the nation as the U.S. government and telecommunications companies roll out 5G cellular technology, this new infrastructure is being built on top of already existing 3G and 4G technology infrastructure.

Despite the growing concern from state representatives, scientists, health professionals and journalists, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has wholeheartedly endorsed the rollout of 5G, claiming that there are no public health concerns. In fact, Louisiana’s HR 145 may end up being challenged in court due to current FCC regulations.

A the Mind Unleashed has previously reported, cities and localities are raising alarm bells due to the federal government and their partners in Big Wireless usurping local control of 5G expansion. The Mayor of Danville, California went so far as to admit that the city council had “lost control” of the 5G rollout to the federal government and Big Wireless.

According to the FCC’s regulations, local governing bodies are not allowed to consider health risks when making their decisions. This is because the federal law known as the Wireless Communications Act of 1996 prohibits local jurisdictions from considering perceived health effects when taking an action on a proposed facility. Instead, cities and towns can only regulate cell sites based on the aesthetics and placement of the devices. This problem was only made worse in September 2018, when the FCC passed a new rule putting the federal government in complete control of the 5G rollout. In April, President Trump issued an executive order stating that local and state bodies must now approve new 5G infrastructure within 90 days. The Trump administration also initiated a cap on the fees local governments can charge telecom companies wanting to install 5G technology.

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

Even with the Trump administration’s endorsement of 5G, the concerns of the Louisiana House have been echoed by other state representatives and senators. On January 24, Frank Pallone, Chairman of the U.S. House Commerce Committee, accused the FCC of colluding with Big Wireless on the massive 5G rollout. Pallone sent a letter to the FCC asking for copies of communications between the FCC and the corporations involved in the current roll out of 5th generation cellular technology.

Additionally, in early February, the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee held a hearing on the future of 5G wireless technology and its impact on the American people and economy. At the hearing, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) raised concerns about the lack of scientific research and data on the technology’s potential health risks. In early December 2018, Senator Blumenthal and California Representative Anna Eshoo held a press conference asking the FCC to provide evidence that 5G technology is safe. “To ensure we communicate accurate information to our constituents we respectfully request you provide to our offices the 5G safety determination from FCC and relevant health agencies that you referred to during the field hearing,” Blumenthal wrote.

More recently, New York Congressman Thomas Suozzi sent a letter to the FCC seeking answers about the technology. “Small cell towers are being installed in residential neighborhoods in close proximity to houses throughout my district,” said Rep. Suozzi in his letter“I have heard instances of these antennae being installed on light poles directly outside the window of a young child’s bedroom. Rightly so, my constituents are worried that should this technology be proven hazardous in the future, the health of their families and value of their properties would be at serious risk.”

New Jersey Congressman Andy Kim also sent a letter, noting that, “Current regulations governing radiofrequency (RF) safety were put in place in 1996 and have not yet been reassessed for newer generation technologies. Despite the close proximity to sensitive areas where these high-band cells will be installed, little research has been conducted to examine 5G safety.” Oregon Representative Peter A. DeFazio, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman, wrote a letter to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and acting FDA Commissioner Sharpless regarding the status of the government’s research into the potential health effects of RF radiation and its relation to the FCC’s guidelines for safe human RF exposure levels.

Police are investigating after an animal rights group released disturbing video footage showing workers mistreating calves at an Indiana farm that Food & Wine once dubbed the “Disneyland of agricultural tourism,” The Associated Press reported.

The Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) released the footage Tuesday after what they said was the “largest undercover dairy investigation in history” at Fair Oaks Farms in Fair Oaks, Indiana. The farm is one of the largest dairy farms in the U.S. and produces the Fairlife milk brand in conjunction with the Coca-Cola company, according to The Indianapolis Star. The farm is also a popular field trip destination and draws more than 600,000 visitors a year.

ARM Founder Richard Couto told The Indianapolis Star that the footage was taken by an undercover investigator who was hired by Fair Oaks as a calf caretaker at its Prairies Edge North Barn from August to November 2018.

“The abuse began day one, hour one,” Couto said.

This is what the investigator witnessed, according to the group’s Facebook page:

Employees were observed slapping, kicking, punching, pushing, throwing and slamming calves; calves were stabbed and beaten with steel rebars, hit in the mouth and face with hard plastic milking bottles, kneed in the spine, burned in the face with hot branding irons, subjected to extreme temperatures, provided with improper nutrition, and denied medical attention. This resulted in extreme pain and suffering by the calves, and in some cases permanent injury and even death.

The investigation also confirmed that male calves were being sent to veal farms, despite the company’s claims to the contrary.

The video prompted an immediate response.

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday it was investigating the abuse, ABC7 reported. And three retailers announced the same day that they would pull Fairlife products from their stores. The retailers were Strack & Van Til, Jewel-Osco and Family Express, The Associated Press reported.

“At Jewel-Osco we strive to maintain high animal welfare standards across all areas of our business, and work in partnership with our vendors to ensure those standards are upheld. We apologize for any inconvenience,” Jewel Osco representatives said in a statement reported by ABC7.

Coca-Cola told The Indianapolis Star that Fair Oaks had stopped all sourcing for Fairlife from the location shown in the video.

“[We] support and respect the proactive approach that Fairlife and Fair Oaks Farms have taken and we continue to stay in contact with them to lend any support they need,” Coca-Cola told The Indianapolis Star.

Fair Oaks founder Mike McCloskey said he had identified four employees and one contracted truck driver responsible for the abuse in the video. He said three of the employees had already been terminated for abusive behavior, and the fourth was terminated Tuesday. The driver is no longer allowed on his property, The Indianapolis Star reported.

“It is with great disappointment to find, after closely reviewing the released ARM video, that there were five individuals committing multiple instances of animal cruelty and despicable judgement. I am disgusted by and take full responsibility for the actions seen in the footage, as it goes against everything that we stand for in regards to responsible cow care and comfort. The employees featured in the video exercised a complete and total disregard for the documented training that all employees go through to ensure the comfort, safety and well-being of our animals,” he said in a statement reported by ABC7.

However, Couto expressed doubt about McCloskey’s denials.

“He is a seasoned dairy man and doesn’t need me to point out what is wrong with his company,” Couto told The Indianapolis Star. “He is playing the innocent bystander here, but it is his corporation and he knows what is go[ing] on.”

Founded by Apollo 14 astronaut and the 6th man to walk on the moon, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is profoundly changing the way we view reality.

We here at Collective Evolution have written about a lot of their work, especially within the realms of parapsychology, where they explore mind-matter interactions, telepathy, precognition etc. During a time where we must begin to go within to find the answers to changing our planet and ourselves, the work IONS does is undoubtedly important. They are bringing high quality, peer-reviewed research that brings us practical solutions to understand who we truly are and what our capabilities as humans really are.

It’s time we go beyond the limitations, boundaries, and beliefs of our current world, and into mind-expanding science that really makes one question the true nature of reality and how much we have yet to discover. This is why we are happy to announce that on the 50th anniversary of the first moonwalk, IONS will be hosting its 18th International Conference, “The Possibility Accelerator: Creating Our Future, NOW.”

It will be held from July 18-21, 2019, and will bring together leading thinkers, visionaries, and wisdom keepers from around the world. Together they will explore new, boundary-pushing possibilities on the frontiers of thought and propose daring answers to questions like: How can we use the fullest extent of our human capacities? What is humanity’s next ‘moonshot’? How can we tap into our deep inner wisdom to help solve the problems of our day? What does our personal exploration offer to collective well-being?

The conference will be held in the heart of Silicon Valley at the Santa Clara Marriott. Participants can expect to dive into profound discussions, moving experiences, mind-blowing science, and mind-expanding presentations with a robust community of noetic explorers who are working to co-create a future where inner wisdom and science work together to address some of the most pressing issues in our world today.

Nearly 100 percent of all animal products come from factory farms or other extremely unethical sources. I would argue that there is no ethical source for producing or eating anything that comes from an animal, especially in today’s day and age when it’s become quite clear that using animals for goods and services as well as food consumption is completely unnecessary and represents one of the largest, if not the largest, contributors to environmental destruction. There are billions of animals raised for slaughter every single year and so many of them go through a torturous, depressing, and heartbreaking existence. How have we allowed this to happen? Our relationship with animals is supposed to be a sacred, special one. How have we become numb to the hurt and pain we cause to these innocent, vulnerable, empathetic, intelligent, and emotional beings?

The latest example of animal cruelty that’s surfaced comes from animal rights activists who released horrifying footage from a Coca-Cola farm. This footage may seem shocking to many, but it’s not shocking for most animal activists as this is very well known and a reality that’s happening everyday on the majority of factory farms.

As a result of the footage, the Coca-Cola corporation has cut ties with the farm, which was supplying milk for the company. But then again, if you drink milk and/or eat or use animal products, this is what you are supporting.

The Animal Recovery Mission sent undercover workers into Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana, one of the largest dairy farms in the country that supplies milk for Coca-Cola’s Fairlife brand.

The footage was released on Wednesday, and it shows workers punching, kicking and throwing calves as well as beating the animals with steel rods and plastic milking bottles “on virtually a daily basis.” Newborn calves are crudely branded and given inadequate food and nutrients. Dead and dying animals are left to bake in the sun and male calves are sold to veal farms, despite the farm claiming the contrary.

While we are on the topic of dairy farms, it’s important to know that cows are forcefully impregnated so they can produce milk and their babies are ripped away from them, which is heartbreaking for the animals because it’s the only piece of love they will ever experience. The babies are then grown for slaughter or killed after being ripped from their mothers not long after birth.

Furthermore, why do humans drink the milk of a cow when it’s not needed? In fact, it’s not good for us at all. Milk from cows has been touted as making our bones stronger and preventing conditions like osteoporosis. It turns out that it’s the complete opposite, that milk causes bone degeneration by leeching calcium from the bone. You can read more about that here. Futhermore, Doctor Colin Campbell, author of the “China Study,” discovered that animal protein (casein found in the milk of a cow) can accelerate and “turn on” cancer, while plant-based protein has the opposite effect. You can read more about that here.

Making space for animals that will be used for human consumption is also one of the leading causes of deforestation.

The Takeaway

Why do we treat animals the way we do? At the end of the day, we are the ones buying these products and supporting this industry, so we have the power to stop it. However, awareness is increasing and the vegan “market” has exploded, whereas dairy products are now having a harder time with sales. Milk sales in America alone declined by more than a billion dollars.

Things are changing, and we must continue to keep creating awareness and speaking up for those going through the biggest genocide in history who are unable to speak for themselves.
