Hashtags are obviously quite popular, and it’s great when one sparks efforts that lead to direct action and change. The latest example is the #trashtag challenge, which has inspired people to go to locations covered in garbage, pick up trash, and then post ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures. As of yesterday, more than 26,000 posts were tagged on Instagram, and as a result, more and more volunteers are picking up trash wherever they are and posting their own before and after pictures.

Initiatives like this make you wonder what would happen if several people on our planet all came together for one common purpose. Just imagine the change we could create. If you think about it, we could literally create anything we wanted, and solve anything we wanted to. Most of the issues we face in this world, if not all of them, are because of us, which means we have the power to solve these issues. Together we are co-creating the human experience, and anytime we want to change the game, ultimately, we can.

If you want to play devils advocate and argue against this point, you might say, “Yeah, but that will never happen.” But that’s not the point. The point is to recognize and acknowledge the fact that yes, if billions of people came together for a specific purpose it would, without a doubt, manifest.

While we are talking about trash, it’s odd that we still manufacture products using plastic. Obviously, it’s big business for many, but humanity has the potential to completely revolutionize and clean up our planet. This includes manufacturing all products with a biodegradable substance that causes no harm to the planet. Hemp is a great example of a substitute for plastic, concrete, paper, oil, and many other substances. It makes absolutely no sense to use plastic given that there are so many environmentally-friendly alternatives. This is one of many confusing things about humanity’s actions.

 

It’s not quite clear on where it all started, but it might have been this post below.

Below is a posted on Reddit by u/idontknowjack69.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, change comes from within. Personally, I know if I was in a position of power to make billions of dollars by bottling water with plastic, or by using plastic in any mass manufacturing process with the intention of worldwide distribution, I wouldn’t do it. There are people who would, and people that do, and those are the people who need to experience a shift in consciousness and values. This shift is happening within many people all over the world, and the ripple will continue to spread and eventually touch those who control our planets resources.

Something’s gotta give.

Findings in a recently published European Union report showed that the Baltic States of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia make up over 30 percent of the EU countries that have already met their 2020 renewable energy targets.

Last week Wisconsin’s Madison Gas and Electric's (MGE) said its 66-MW Saratoga Wind Farm is fully operational and delivering energy to the electric grid. MGE and Vestas – the company that built the turbines – have completed testing of the turbines and electrical systems, and the wind farm is fully online.

New research shows that small run-of-river (ROR) hydropower projects can provide just as much baseload stability as reservoir-based hydropower plants while being highly responsive to real-time grid and market changes. This means that as the U.S. seeks to expand renewable energy sources without compromising reliability, one option is more flexible (and profitable) hydropower that doesn’t involve dams.

 

If you experience brain fog on the regular, you know it’s no joke. Brain fog can be so severe that it impedes your daily quality of life, down to your ability to think clearly, your ability to experience joy, your ability to work, your ability to communicate or show up as your best self in your relationships, and the list goes on.

The problem when researching brain fog is that there are so many theories and possible contributing factors floating around that it leaves you more confused than anything else. Perhaps you read that it’s due to an overgrowth of candida, the medication you are taking, or the heavy food you ate last night. But then why is it that someone who eats a diet of highly processed junk food can go about their day without the slightest degree of brain fog while someone who eats a diet rich in organic, whole foods struggles to think clearly?

The answer has to do with your liver and your brain.

The liver troublemaker: Epstein-Barr virus

The liver harbours many pathogens and toxins. That’s its job after all, to protect you from the onslaught of toxins around you. But one of the most prevalent and damaging of these pathogens is the Esptein-Barr virus (EBV). In his book Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal , Anthony William shares how EBV has created a secret epidemic.

“Out of the roughly 320 million people in the U.S., over 225 million Americans have some form of EBV. Epstein-Barr is responsible for mystery illnesses of every category: For some people, it creates fatigue and pain that go unnamed. For others, EBV symptoms prompt doctors to prescribe ineffective treatments, such as hormone replacement. And for so many people walking around with EBV, it gets misdiagnosed… Among the reasons EBV is thriving: so little is understood about it. Medical communities are aware of only one version of EBV, but there are actually over 60 varieties. Epstein-Barr is behind several of the debilitating illnesses that stump doctors.”

In his latest book, Medical Medium: Liver Rescue, he dives deeper into EBV’s impact on the liver. He explains how many people carry an EBV viral load in the liver without realizing it. EBV and other pathogens feed off of the toxins stored in the liver such as adrenaline, the stress hormone that runs rampant in most of the population’s blood stream due to the common fight-or-flight lifestyle. Toxic heavy metals and pesticides are other favourite foods for EBV, which most of us have accumulated from environmental exposure or exposure in our mother’s womb, especially in the case of toxic heavy metals like mercury.

To make matters worse, not only do pathogens like EBV continually feed off of the toxins stored in the liver, but they also create neurotoxic waste. As the liver fills up with these neurotoxins, it reaches capacity, at which point they escape into the bloodstream. William explains that neurotoxins have a unique ability to travel in the body and to cross the blood brain barrier. Once in the brain, these neurotoxins cloud and short-circuit neurotransmitters, leading to the symptom we know as brain fog.

Dirty neurotransmitters are not able to do their job of transmitting electrical impulses. As an electrical impulse runs down a neuron using an impure neurotransmitter chemical, it can’t burn clean; the impulse is shorted out, diminished, or left to run on less power. William says this discovery is nearly fifty years away in medical research.

Other causes of brain fog

EBV neurotoxins are not the only cause of brain fog, says William. Someone could have adrenal issues from prolonged periods of excess stress, which results in excess adrenaline being soaked up by the liver causing lower energy levels in the body. William also says that adrenaline can get into the brain, where it is highly corrosive to neurotransmitter activity and electrolytes. Over time our ability to produce more neurotransmitters becomes diminished due to poor diet or a stagnant liver.

As mentioned previously, heavy metals are another main cause of brain fog. These toxic heavy metals (like mercury and aluminium) oxidize in the brain and cause a metallic run-off that saturates brain tissue and short-circuits neurotransmitters. William says this type of brain fog is slightly different than the others, with moments of clarity and then fogginess.

Beyond adrenaline and heavy metals, other chemicals like solvents and prescription drugs can over-burden the liver and cause brain fog. However, this type of brain fog typically doesn’t have as much fatigue associated with it as when a virus is at play.

Everyone’s brain fog is slightly different and deserves to have its real causes recognized and identified individually. William states that many health practitioners fall prey to the belief that brain fog is purely gut-related, and while cleaning up the diet and healing the gut can do wonders for many people struggling with brain fog, those who have very high viral loads and sluggish livers congested with neurotoxins will struggle to find success by merely cleaning up the gut, especially because many gut-cleansing protocols fail to correct the aforementioned root causes of brain fog.

Detoxing your liver

Now that you have some of the answers for what’s really behind brain fog, you can move forward with healing. By eating a diet that consists of an abundance of fresh fruits, leafy greens and vegetables, along with avoiding the foods William discusses in Liver Rescue, you can begin detoxifying your liver, but also offer your adrenals and brain the support they need.

There are problematic foods—like eggs and dairy products—that feed viruses and other pathogens in the liver. That includes even grass-fed milk, cheese, and butter. Gluten is another offender. Gluten is a favoured food of the Epstein-Barr virus and other viruses and bacteria. And remember that the more a virus eats, the more toxins it will eliminate, which will only worsen brain fog and other symptoms.

Leafy greens, fruits, and vegetables, on the other hand, will support the liver in ridding viruses and toxic heavy metals from the body. Kale, red lettuce, butter lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, apples, peaches, plums, melons, papaya, wild blueberries, mango, and a little avocado—these are some of the foods William says to incorporate into your diet if you suffer from brain fog or wish to help avoid it in the future. These foods help to kill off viruses like Epstein-Barr, remove toxins from the body, detoxify and support the liver and brain, and so much more.

Straight celery juice on an empty stomach every day not only repairs neurotransmitter chemicals with its mineral salts, but also helps build new neurotransmitters in the brain. For more information on the incredible healing power of celery juice, check out this article, Why the Celery Juice Movement is Taking Over the World.

Brain fog is a serious condition impacting the lives of millions, and understanding its root cause is important so that we don’t mislabel those who are suffering. As William writes in Liver Rescue, 

“So many people are blamed for their brain fog and called lazy, irresponsible, uninspired, or unpassionate. People are called silly and even stupid because of brain fog. Children are misunderstood and misdiagnosed because of brain fog. When young adults can’t find the right words to express themselves, and the words that come out of their mouths don’t come out the way they want—that can often be brain fog. Adults often feel inadequate or useless—that can be brain fog. When anyone has difficulty making decisions and feels like the process sucks the life out of them—that can be brain fog. There are reasons you’ve experienced it, and with the right commitment, you can free yourself from it.”

In recent years we’ve seen a number of credible scientific reports indicating that electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices is linked to the development of cancers, including brain and heart cancer. And as the world’s wireless network is upgraded to 5G, we may soon see a dramatic spike in cases of cancer, and people in high places are speaking out to warn the public.

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

Additionally, warnings about the safety of emerging 5G technology are everywhere, and even the California Brain Tumor Association issued a public warning. But, we’re already living in a world that has grown dependent on wireless and bluetooth technology, with an array of consumer products like Apple’s AirPods which act as wireless transmitters/receivers sitting right next to the brain, nestled among the most sensitive parts of the ear.

This is a recipe for a public health disaster, and to emphasize this, a group of 250 scientists from over 40 countries have signed a petition to the WHO and the UN to warn them about the documented dangers of radio wave radiation from WiFi, cell phones and bluetooth.

“Apple’s wireless AirPods, for example, ‘communicate with one another using a magnetic induction field, a variable magnetic field [one] sends through your brain to communicate with the other,’ explains Dr Joel Moskowitz.

 

Dr Moskowitz, a University of California, Berkeley community health professor who focuses on cell phone exposures, says there isn’t even research on what this could do to the brain yet, let alone regulations to limit the potential effects.” [Source]

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

The opening statement of the petition lists a litany of current technological products that are all linked to physiological disorders, disease and even cancer.

“We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). Based upon peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices. These include–but are not limited to–radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitting devices, such as cellular and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors as well as electric devices and infra-structures used in the delivery of electricity that generate extremely-low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF).” [Source]

“Pity the nation whose people are sheep

And whose shepherds mislead them

Pity the nation whose leaders are liars

Whose sages are silenced

And whose bigots haunt the airwaves

Pity the nation that raises not its voice

Except to praise conquerors

And acclaim the bully as hero

And aims to rule the world

By force and by torture…

Pity the nation oh pity the people

who allow their rights to erode

and their freedoms to be washed away…”

War spending is bankrupting America.

Our nation is being preyed upon by a military industrial complex that is propped up by war profiteers, corrupt politicians and foreign governments.

America has so much to offer—creativity, ingenuity, vast natural resources, a rich heritage, a beautifully diverse populace, a freedom foundation unrivaled anywhere in the world, and opportunities galore—and yet our birthright is being sold out from under us so that power-hungry politicians, greedy military contractors, and bloodthirsty war hawks can make a hefty profit at our expense.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that your hard-earned tax dollars are being used for national security and urgent military needs.

It’s all a ruse.

You know what happens to tax dollars that are left over at the end of the government’s fiscal year? Government agencies—including the Department of Defense—go on a “use it or lose it” spending spree so they can justify asking for money in the next fiscal year.

We’re not talking chump change, either.

We’re talking $97 billion worth of wasteful spending.

According to an investigative report by Open the Government, among the items purchased during the last month of the fiscal year when government agencies go all out to get rid of these “use it or lose it” funds: Wexford Leather club chair ($9,241), china tableware ($53,004), alcohol ($308,994), golf carts ($673,471), musical equipment including pianos, tubas, and trombones ($1.7 million), lobster tail and crab ($4.6 million), iPhones and iPads ($7.7 million), and workout and recreation equipment ($9.8 million).

So much for draining the swamp.

Anyone who suggests that the military needs more money is either criminally clueless or equally corrupt, because the military isn’t suffering from lack of funding—it’s suffering from lack of proper oversight.

Where President Trump fits into that scenario, you decide.

Trump may turn out to be, as policy analyst Stan Collender warned, “the biggest deficit- and debt-increasing president of all time.”

Rest assured, however, that if Trump gets his way—to the tune of a $4.7 trillion budget that digs the nation deeper in debt to foreign creditors, adds $750 billion for the military budget, and doubles the debt growththat Trump once promised to erase—the war profiteers (and foreign banks who “own” our debt) will be raking in a fortune while America goes belly up.

This is basic math, and the numbers just don’t add up.

As it now stands, the U.S. government is operating in the negative on every front: it’s spending far more than what it makes (and takes from the American taxpayers) and it is borrowing heavily (from foreign governments and Social Security) to keep the government operating and keep funding its endless wars abroad.

Certainly, nothing about the way the government budgets its funds puts America’s needs first.

The nation’s educational system is pathetic (young people are learning nothing about their freedoms or their government). The infrastructure is antiquated and growing more outdated by the day. The health system is overpriced and inaccessible to those who need it most. The supposedly robust economy is belied by the daily reports of businesses shuttering storefronts and declaring bankruptcy. And our so-called representative government is a sham.

If this is a formula for making America great again, it’s not working.

The White House wants taxpayers to accept that the only way to reduce the nation’s ballooning deficit is by cutting “entitlement” programs such as Social Security and Medicare, yet the glaring economic truth is that at the end of the day, it’s the military industrial complex—and not the sick, the elderly or the poor—that is pushing America towards bankruptcy.

We have become a debtor nation, and the government is sinking us deeper into debt with every passing day that it allows the military industrial complex to call the shots.

Simply put, the government cannot afford to maintain its over-extended military empire.

Money is the new 800-pound gorilla,” remarked a senior administration official involved in Afghanistan. “It shifts the debate from ‘Is the strategy working?’ to ‘Can we afford this?’ And when you view it that way, the scope of the mission that we have now is far, far less defensible.” Or as one commentator noted, “Foreclosing the future of our country should not be confused with defending it.”

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

To be clear, the U.S government’s defense spending is about one thing and one thing only: establishing and maintaining a global military empire.

Although the U.S. constitutes only 5% of the world’s population, America boasts almost 50% of the world’s total military expenditure, spending more on the military than the next 19 biggest spending nations combined.

In fact, the Pentagon spends more on war than all 50 states combined spend on health, education, welfare, and safety.

The American military-industrial complex has erected an empire unsurpassed in history in its breadth and scope, one dedicated to conducting perpetual warfare throughout the earth.

Since 2001, the U.S. government has spent more than $4.7 trillion waging its endless wars.

Having been co-opted by greedy defense contractors, corrupt politicians and incompetent government officials, America’s expanding military empire is bleeding the country dry at a rate of more than $32 million per hour.

In fact, the U.S. government has spent more money every five seconds in Iraq than the average American earns in a year.

Then there’s the cost of maintaining and staffing the 1000-plus U.S. military bases spread around the worldand policing the globe with 1.3 million U.S. troops stationed in 177 countries (over 70% of the countries worldwide).

Future wars and military exercises waged around the globe are expected to push the total bill upwards of $12 trillion by 2053.

The U.S. government is spending money it doesn’t have on a military empire it can’t afford.

As investigative journalist Uri Friedman puts it, for more than 15 years now, the United States has been fighting terrorism with a credit card, “essentially bankrolling the wars with debt, in the form of purchases of U.S. Treasury bonds by U.S.-based entities like pension funds and state and local governments, and by countries like China and Japan.”

War is not cheap, but it becomes outrageously costly when you factor in government incompetence, fraud, and greedy contractors.

As The Nation reports:

For decades, the DoD’s leaders and accountants have been perpetrating a gigantic, unconstitutional accounting fraud, deliberately cooking the books to mislead the Congress and drive the DoD’s budgets ever higher, regardless of military necessity. DoD has literally been making up numbers in its annual financial reports to Congress—representing trillions of dollars’ worth of seemingly nonexistent transactions—knowing that Congress would rely on those misleading reports when deciding how much money to give the DoD the following year.

For example, a leading accounting firm concluded that one of the Pentagon’s largest agencies “can’t account for hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of spending.”

Unfortunately, the outlook isn’t much better for the spending that can be tracked.

A government audit found that defense contractor Boeing has been massively overcharging taxpayers for mundane parts, resulting in tens of millions of dollars in overspending. As the report noted, the American taxpayer paid:

$71 for a metal pin that should cost just 4 cents; $644.75 for a small gear smaller than a dime that sells for $12.51: more than a 5,100 percent increase in price. $1,678.61 for another tiny part, also smaller than a dime, that could have been bought within DoD for $7.71: a 21,000 percent increase. $71.01 for a straight, thin metal pin that DoD had on hand, unused by the tens of thousands, for 4 cents: an increase of over 177,000 percent.

That price gouging has become an accepted form of corruption within the American military empire is a sad statement on how little control “we the people” have over our runaway government.

Mind you, this isn’t just corrupt behavior. It’s deadly, downright immoral behavior.

The U.S. government is not making the world any safer. It’s making the world more dangerous. It is estimated that the U.S. military drops a bomb somewhere in the world every 12 minutes. Since 9/11, the United States government has directly contributed to the deaths of around 500,000. Every one of those deaths was paid for with taxpayer funds.

The U.S. government is not making America any safer. It’s exposing American citizens to alarming levels of blowback, a CIA term referring to the unintended consequences of the U.S. government’s international activities. Chalmers Johnson, a former CIA consultant, repeatedly warned that America’s use of its military to gain power over the global economy would result in devastating blowback.

Those who call the shots in the government—those who push the military industrial complex’s agenda—those who make a killing by embroiling the U.S. in foreign wars—have not heeded Johnson’s warning.

The U.S. government is not making American citizens any safer. The repercussions of America’s military empire have been deadly, not only for those innocent men, women and children killed by drone strikes abroad but also those here in the United States.

The 9/11 attacks were blowback. The Boston Marathon Bombing was blowback. The attempted Times Square bomber was blowback. The Fort Hood shooter, a major in the U.S. Army, was blowback.

The transformation of America into a battlefield is blowback.

All of this carnage is being carried out with the full support of the American people, or at least with the proxy that is our taxpayer dollars.

The government is destabilizing the economy, destroying the national infrastructure through neglect and a lack of resources, and turning taxpayer dollars into blood money with its endless wars, drone strikes and mounting death tolls.

As Martin Luther King Jr. recognized, under a military empire, war and its profiteering will always take precedence over the people’s basic human needs.

Similarly, President Dwight Eisenhower warned us not to let the profit-driven war machine endanger our liberties or democratic processes.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron. […] Is there no other way the world may live?”

We failed to heed Eisenhower’s warning.

The illicit merger of the armaments industry and the government that Eisenhower warned against has come to represent perhaps the greatest threat to the nation today.

It’s not sustainable, of course.

Eventually, inevitably, military empires fall and fail by spreading themselves too thin and spending themselves to death.

It happened in Rome. It’s happening again.

The America empire is already breaking down.

We’re already witnessing a breakdown of society on virtually every front, and the government is ready.

For years now, the government has worked with the military to prepare for widespread civil unrest brought about by “economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters.”

For years now, the government has been warning against the dangers of domestic terrorism, erecting surveillance systems to monitor its own citizens, creating classification systems to label any viewpoints that challenge the status quo as extremist, and training law enforcement agencies to equate anyone possessing anti-government views as a domestic terrorist.

We’re approaching critical mass.

As long as “we the people” continue to allow the government to wage its costly, meaningless, endless wars abroad, the American homeland will continue to suffer: our roads will crumble, our bridges will fail, our schools will fall into disrepair, our drinking water will become undrinkable, our communities will destabilize, our economy will tank, crime will rise, and our freedoms will suffer.

So who will save us?

As I make clear in my book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we’d better start saving ourselves: one by one, neighbor to neighbor, through grassroots endeavors, by pushing back against the police state where it most counts—in our communities first and foremost, and by holding fast to what binds us together and not allowing politics and other manufactured nonrealities to tear us apart.

Start today. Start now. Do your part.

Literally and figuratively, the buck starts and stops with “we the people.”

I recently wrote about the renewed calls for state legislatures to eliminate personal belief vaccine exemptions and restrict medical exemptions, and how California state Sen. Dr. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, is even urging the U.S. Surgeon General to push mandatory vaccinations to the top of the federal public health agenda.1,2

According to Pan, “unwarranted vaccine hesitancy” is a threat to public health as it prevents “community immunity, which protects our children and the most vulnerable.” He believes mandating vaccines, as was done for smallpox during the Revolutionary War, would “protect our right as Americans to be free of preventable diseases.”

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

Herd Immunity and Vaccination

What he’s talking about is achieving and maintaining so-called vaccine-acquired “herd immunity,” the theory which maintains that once a majority of people have been vaccinated, the infectious disease in question can no longer spread and everyone is protected, including the tiny minority who for whatever reason are not or cannot be vaccinated.

The problem with this argument is that it doesn’t work for vaccines. While there is such a thing as herd immunity among populations in which a majority has had the infectious disease and acquired a long lasting natural immunity, vaccines confer only temporary artificial immunity, and so true herd immunity is unlikely to be fully achieved, even if nearly 100 percent of the population are vaccinated.

The measles vaccine, for example, wears off after about a decade3 or two. 4,5 Whatever temporary artificial protection is obtained from other vaccines also fades in time. If you are an adult, chances are that some of the vaccinations you received as a child are not protecting you today.6 What’s more, between 2 and 10 percent of some vaccines result in “primary vaccine failure,” meaning those who get the vaccine do not gain even temporary artificial protection after vaccination. 7

Indeed, public health officials are now recommending adults born in or after 1957 to get revaccinated against measles.8,9,10 Since the Disneyland-related measles outbreak in early 2015, some public health doctors are even suggesting all adults should get a measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) booster shotbecause as many as 1 in 10 previously vaccinated adults may be susceptible to measles due to waning vaccine-acquired immunity.11

Herd Immunity Does Not Work for Measles

It’s quite possible that revaccinating adults still would not achieve herd immunity for measles. Dr. Alexander Langmuir is known as “the father of infectious disease epidemiology.” In 1949, he created the epidemiology section of what became the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). He also headed the Polio Surveillance Unit founded in 1955 after polio vaccine safety issues became public.

According to Langmuir and many other experts, one dose of the measles vaccine was supposed to eradicate the common childhood disease. But, of course, that did not happen.

By the early 1980s, more than 95 percent of children entering school in the U.S. had received a dose of measles containing vaccine but, in 1989-1990, there were outbreaks of measles among school-age children and college students. Public health officials responded by recommending a second dose of MMR vaccine for all children. In an article published in Clinical Microbiology Reviews in 1995, researchers stated:

“Measles, which was targeted for elimination from the United States in 1979, persisted at low incidence until 1989, when an epidemic swept the country. Cases occurred among appropriately vaccinated school-age populations and among unimmunized, inner-city preschool children.

In response to the epidemic, measles immunization recommendations have been modified. To prevent spread among school-age populations, a second dose of MMR vaccine is recommended at 5 to 6 or 11 to 12 years of age.”12

A 1994 study13 looking at measles incidence in Cape Town, Africa, indicated that as vaccination rates increased, measles became a disease in populations where the majority of children had been vaccinated. The immunization coverage was 91 percent and vaccine efficacy was estimated to be 79 percent. According to the authors:

The epidemiology of measles in Cape Town has thus changed as evinced in this epidemic, with an increase in the number of cases occurring in older, previously vaccinated children. The possible reasons for this include both primary and secondary vaccine failure.”

This “startling” surprise challenged the theory that vaccine-induced herd immunity would provide complete protection against outbreaks of measles. The CDC has also admitted, and reports in the medical literature have documented, that measles outbreaks occur both in highly vaccinated school populations and among vaccinated adult populations.14, 15,16 ,17,18,19,20,21,22

Examples of Measles Outbreaks in Highly Vaccinated Populations

A recent example of measles outbreaks in a highly vaccinated population occurred in Israel in 2017 in a military population ranging in age from 19 to 37, which had “high measles vaccination coverage.” The first two patients identified had both received two doses of measles vaccine. Patient zero, a 21-year-old soldier, had documentation of having received three doses. According to the CDC:23

“All patients except one had high measles IgG avidity, which is an indicator of previous vaccination or previous infection. Because all the serum specimens (except that from the primary patient) were collected two to three days after the onset of symptoms, the high avidity IgG was assumed to be a result of patients’ previous vaccination.

Although outbreaks of measles among vaccinated populations have been reported worldwide,24,25,26,27 most outbreaks in Israel have occurred in unvaccinated or partially vaccinated populations).

Measles transmission from a vaccinated person with documented secondary vaccine failure also has been described in New York City in 2011, including among vaccinated health care providers,28 and in the Marshall Islands.29 Waning of vaccine-induced immunity is a phenomenon that needs to be addressed …”

Another example is a 2014 study30 conducted in the Zhejiang province in China. Researchers found that populations which have achieved a measles vaccination rate of 99 percent through mandatory vaccination programs are still experiencing consistent outbreaks far beyond what the World Health Organization expects.

What’s more, 93.6 percent of the 1,015 participants in this study tested seropositive for measles antibodies, which theoretically means they should have been protected against the disease.

The herd immunity threshold for vaccine-acquired artificial immunity is thought to be between 80 and 95 percent,31 depending on the disease in question (for measles, it’s 90 to 95 percent) yet, even though 94 percent of individuals had antibodies against measles in this case, an outbreak still occurred.

Persistent reports of measles and other infectious diseases for which vaccines have been developed and given in multiple doses to most children calls the concept of vaccine-acquired herd immunity into question.

Natural Versus Vaccine-Induced Immunity

Again, a key factor to consider is that many vaccines do not provide long-lasting or lifelong immunity. Vaccines only confer temporary artificial immunity and sometimes they fail to do that. This has been shown to have important generational ramifications as well. Infants under age 1, who used to be protected in the first year of life by getting natural maternal antibodies from their mothers, who had experienced and recovered from measles in childhood, are now susceptible to measles from birth.

That is because most young mothers today have been vaccinated and measles vaccine-acquired maternal antibodies are far less protective than naturally acquired antibodies.32,33 To understand why this is so, you need to understand a little bit about how your immune system works.

There are two systems that fight disease in your body. One is the innate system that is always ready to work and the other is the adaptive arm of immunity. The adaptive arm consists of Th1 and Th2. Both are necessary but Th1 is commonly known as the cell mediated arm, and Th2 known as the humoral or antibody arm.

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

Most vaccines preferentially stimulate the Th2 or humoral part of the immune system. Measured antibodies in the blood (antibody titers) may be reflective of partial immunity, but it is not a perfect correlate to full immunity that involves both innate (cellular) and humoral (adaptive) immune responses, such as those obtained after recovery from viral or bacterial infections.

The benefit of only measuring humoral immunity as a means of measuring vaccine effectiveness is that it can be easily determined by drawing blood samples and conducting lab tests. If specific vaccine-induced antibodies are present in the blood and judged to be in high enough quantities, the person is presumed to be immune to that infection and protected.

Evidence of the profound importance and effectiveness of the innate and Th1 immune system can be demonstrated in individuals who are unable to genetically generate antibody production, a condition called agamma-globulinemia. When individuals with this condition were exposed to measles, they recovered just as well as those who were able to make normal antibodies.34

They also had protection in the future upon re-exposure. This discovery was made in the 1960s when measles vaccination programs were just getting underway, and demonstrates that production of antibodies is not necessary for the natural recovery from measles and acquisition of protective immunity.

Other research35,36 published in 2011 demonstrated that antibody-mediated immunity is not necessary to neutralize viruses like vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), again calling into question the idea that elevations in vaccine-induced antibody titers are necessary to produce immunity against all infectious diseases.

Delayed Infection Multiplies Risk

The inability to actually achieve herd immunity for many infectious diseases is by far not the only problem.

Using “mathematical analysis to explore how modern-era vaccination practices have changed the risks of severe outcomes for some infections by changing the landscape for disease transmission,” researchers have found that by delaying the age of infection with vaccination, the health risks are exponentially increased in vulnerable age groups within populations. This Lancet Infectious Diseases study37 found that:

“[N]egative outcomes are 4.5 times worse for measles, 2.2 times worse for chickenpox, and 5.8 times worse for rubella than would be expected in a pre-vaccine era in which the average age at infection would have been lower.”

The researchers point out that by making an illness rarer, it also raises the expected severity when the illness arises in vulnerable age groups. Now, the warning issued in this paper is that “remaining unvaccinated in a predominantly vaccine-protected community exposes … children to the most severe possible outcomes.”

What’s not addressed is the fact that routine vaccinations are increasing the severity of illness that apparently cannot be contained, as outbreaks are still occurring where vaccination rates are high enough that the population should have established vaccine acquired herd immunity.

DTaP Vaccine Increases Susceptibility to Pertussis

Yet another problem is that vaccination may raise your susceptibility to that very illness and/or other viral illness. We’ve seen this with influenza vaccination, where the flu vaccine appears to raise your risk of contracting other respiratory infections38 and/or more serious influenza.39,40,41 Another example is pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine.

As detailed in a study published in the February 2019 issue of the Journal of Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, researchers stated:42

“The first diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTaP) vaccines were developed in Japan … Afterward, DTaP vaccines were developed in the Western world, and definitive efficacy trials were carried out in the 1990s.

These vaccines were all less reactogenic than DTwP [diphtheria, tetanus toxoids, whole-cell pertussis] vaccines, and despite the fact that their efficacy was less than that of DTwP vaccines, they were approved in the United States and many other countries.

DTaP vaccines replaced DTwP vaccines in the United States in 1997. In the last 13 years, major pertussis epidemics have occurred in the United States, and numerous studies have shown the deficiencies of DTaP vaccines, including the small number of antigens that the vaccines contain and the type of cellular immune response that they elicit.

The type of cellular response, a predominantly T2 response, results in less efficacy and shorter duration of protection. Because of the small number of antigens … linked-epitope suppression occurs. Because of linked-epitope suppression, all children who were primed by DTaP vaccines will be more susceptible to pertussis throughout their lifetimes, and there is no easy way to decrease this increased lifetime susceptibility.”

The most important information is right at the end, so let me repeat it by restating it: Children who receive the DTaP vaccine are more susceptible to whooping cough; this elevated susceptibility persists throughout their life, and nothing can be done about it.

However, what these researchers and public health officials also are not admitting is that the whole cell pertussis vaccines (DTwP) used in the U.S. between the late 1950s and 1997, when the less reactive acellular pertussis vaccine DTaP replaced the more toxic whole cell vaccines, is this: The B. pertussis organism started mutating into vaccine resistant forms shortly after whole cell DPT began to be used on widespread basis by children in the 1950s.

Whole cell DPT was failing to control whooping cough in the 1980s and was found to have inferior efficacy compared to the purified DTaP vaccines tested in worldwide clinical trials in the 1990s.

As early as 1965 and all through the 1980s and 1990s, public health officials in the U.S. and Europe knew that whole cell pertussis vaccine in DPT was not preventing infections in many vaccinated children and previously vaccinated adults,” said Barbara Loe Fisher, cofounder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) in a report on pertussis vaccines published in this newsletter during Vaccine Awareness Week 2018.

Just like before DPT vaccination programs, pertussis increases continued to be reported in cycles of three to five years, including in the U.S., where 95 percent of children had gotten three to five DPT shots. Between 1986 and 1996, multiple clinical trials confirmed that the less reactive acellular DTaP vaccine demonstrated superior efficacy and effectiveness compared to the old and more reactive DPT vaccine,” she said.43

Despite this knowledge, health authorities feign surprise when pertussis outbreaks occur, and continue to blame it on “vaccine hesitancy” driven by misinformation. You may have heard that “highly contagious” B. pertussis whooping cough is spreading among teenage students at Harvard-Westlake School’s two campuses in Los Angeles County in California.44

As of February 27, 30 students have fallen ill. What’s important to note is that all of the students who contracted the illness were vaccinated. School officials admit that inadequate vaccine coverage is definitely not the problem in this case as only 18 of the 1,600 students in the entire school system have exemptions to opt out of the whooping cough vaccine, and none of those 18 are sick.45,46

NVIC’s Fisher warns that the failures of DTaP vaccine are prompting some researchers today to suggest that the old whole cell pertussis vaccine (DTwP) driven off the market in 1996 should be brought back to the U.S. and given to infants for the first one or two doses. “They want to ‘prime’ little 6- to 8-week-old babies with ALL the bioactive toxins in the whole cell pertussis vaccine’s crude brew. Apparently they think it is worth the risk to pretend like they have fixed the problem,” she said.47

Portion of Measles Outbreaks Are Attributable to Vaccine Reactions

So, is there really a rapid increase in preventable diseases? Or are the vaccine failures just becoming more pervasive and vaccine reactions more noticeable?

Circling back to measles for a moment, a recent paper48 in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology describes new technology developed to “rapidly distinguish between measles cases and vaccine reactions to avoid unnecessary outbreak response measures such as case isolation and contact investigations.” According to this paper:

“During the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees. Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences.”

In other words, about 38 percent of suspected measles cases in the 2015 Disneyland measles scarewere actually vaccine-related and not caused by transmission of wild-type measles. You may have noticed that each time a measles outbreak occurs, it’s always blamed on the unvaccinated. Yet a portion of those who become sick may actually have been sickened by the vaccine-strain measles virus.

Cracking Down on Vaccine ‘Misinformation’

As I discussed in a vaccine article last week, the media is currently filled with reports of how tech platforms such as Google, Facebook,49 Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and even Amazon50 are fueling “anti-vax” fears and spreading misinformation (or doing nothing to prevent sharing of vaccine safety related material between users).51

Pinterest has already responded to calls for censorship and now blocks all vaccine related searches.52Amazon has also pulled at least five vaccine documentaries from its streaming Prime Video platform, all of which questioned the safety of vaccines.53

It’s difficult to express just how harmful this censorship is for public health, and what the ramifications will be if all these platforms implement censoring tactics to prevent information about vaccine safety (or rather lack thereof) from being accessed.

It’s especially upsetting when health authorities, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) among them, make statements that are in absolute contradiction to established scientific facts.

Health Authorities Lie to Congress

In a January interview with CBS News,54 Fauci flat out denied the fact that vaccines can cause injuryor death — this despite the fact that the vaccine injury compensation program (VICP) created under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 has paid out nearly $4 billion in awards for vaccine damage and death, and that’s just 31 percent of filed petitions for compensation.55

In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court also declared that government licensed and recommended childhood vaccines mandated by states are “unavoidably unsafe.”56

What’s worse, Fauci recently made false statements before Congress about MMR vaccine reactions in what appeared to be an attempt to reassure legislators that vaccines are completely safe and do not cause serious reactions, such as encephalitis (brain inflammation). As reported by NVIC’s Barbara Loe Fisher:57

“On Feb. 27, 2019, the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a public hearing on ‘Confronting a Growing Public Health Threat: Measles Outbreaks in the U.S.’58 that was also broadcast live on C-span.

Parents across the nation watched and heard the renowned Anthony Fauci, MD … either tell a bald-faced lie or show his ignorance when he testified, under oath, that MMR vaccine does not cause encephalitis.

This large dose of disinformation drew gasps of protest from parents attending the Capitol Hill hearing and prompted committee chair Diana DeGette, D-Colo., to bang the gavel and warn that ‘manifestations of approval or disapproval of the proceedings is in violation of the rules of the House and this Committee.’

It is really hard to watch a distinguished physician like Dr. Fauci mislead legislators by blatantly denying the damage that serious vaccine reactions like brain inflammation can do to children’s brains.”

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, also misinformed legislators holding the congressional hearing that was broadcast live and watched by families across the nation.

Messonnier stated, “There are rare instances in children with certain very specific underlying problems with their immune system in whom the vaccine is contraindicated,” but she said that the MMR vaccine “does not cause brain swelling and encephalitis” in healthy children, and that parents would know if their child was at risk beforehand, because their child’s doctor would tell them if this were the case.

According to Merck and CDC, MMR Vaccine Can Cause Brain Inflammation

Fisher goes on to present evidence for why Fauci and Messonnier are both wrong, and are in fact presenting Congress with false information. For starters, the MMR vaccine package insert59 published by Merck states that “Encephalitis and encephalopathy have been reported approximately once for every 3 million doses of M-M-R II or measles-, mumps- and rubella-containing vaccine.”

The vaccine information statement (VIS) that doctors are by federal law required to give parents before their children receive a CDC recommended vaccine states that “severe” adverse effects of the MMR60 and MMRV61 vaccines include “deafness; long-term seizures, coma, lowered consciousness; and brain damage.”

One of the “moderate” adverse events associated with the MMRV vaccine is encephalitis. Fisher also goes through some of the medical literature showing the MMR vaccine can cause encephalitis and encephalopathy. For more data, I recommend reading Fisher’s article62 in its entirety.

“Parents, who trusted and did what they were told to do when they took their healthy children into a doctor’s office to be vaccinated and then watched their children suffer brain inflammation and regress into chronic poor health, learn that it is not a good idea to believe everything that doctors say about vaccines.

People who were healthy, got vaccinated and were never healthy again, quickly learn how to tell the difference between a doctor telling the truth about vaccine safety and one who is not, because their lives depend upon it.

If public health officials can go before Congress and provide demonstrably false statements about MMR vaccine reactions, what else are they fooling the public about?” Fisher writes.

Forced Vaccination Violates Human Rights

In a February 25, 2019, letter63 to the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, Physicians for Informed Consent urge the committee to make note of and correct a number of errors in its memorandum for its “Confronting a Growing Public Health Threat: Measles Outbreaks in the U.S.” meeting. Among the errors:

•The claim that one or two deaths occur per 1,000 children who acquire measles is an erroneous calculation error. At most, there is one death per 6,000, but more likely one death per 10,000. (For an explanation of the data for these figures, see the original letter)

•The claim that “CDC has determined that receiving the MMR vaccine is safer than getting any of the viruses” has not been scientifically demonstrated. According to Physicians for Informed Consent:

In 2017, we reported in The British Medical Journal64 that every year an estimated 5,700 U.S. children (approximately 1 in 640) suffer febrile seizures from the first dose of the MMR vaccine — which is five times more than the number of febrile seizures expected from measles.

This amounts to 57,000 febrile seizures over the past 10 years due to the MMR vaccine alone. As 5 percent of children with a history of febrile seizures progress to epilepsy, a debilitating and life-threatening chronic condition, the estimated number of children whose epilepsy is due to the MMR vaccine in the past 10 years is 2,850.

In addition, we contend that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), as a passive surveillance system, does not adequately capture vaccine side effects and that serious side effects, including permanent neurological harm and death from the MMR and other vaccines, may similarly be underreported.”

Speaking out against calls for forced vaccinations, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) sent a statement on federal vaccine mandates65,66 to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on February 26, 2019, saying forced vaccinations are unnecessary and violate human rights, and that the AAPS “strongly opposes federal interference in medical decisions, including mandated vaccines.”

When award-winning American journalist Ben Swann covered what became known as “PizzaGate” and Wikileaks tweeted Swann’s coverage of the story, it received a lot of attention online and from those within the alternative media community. The story stemmed from strange emails that were sent to John Podesta. It ended up going viral to the point where mainstream media had no choice but to address it.

PizzaGate implicated Podesta in a supposed pedophile ring while he was managing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. He was also Bill Clinton’s White House Chief of Staff during his presidential run. Right away, the mainstream labelled PizzaGate as a conspiracy theory, and didn’t really address any of the emails that made so many people believe it was real. Podesta was interviewed several times about it and constantly claimed that it was ‘fake news’ and a ‘conspiracy theory’ that had been debunked by mainstream media. I’m not going to go into PizzaGate and whether it was real or not. Anybody who has looked into elite-level pedophilia and pedophile rings that use ritualistic abuse can access enough credible information and evidence on the subject, outside of PizzaGate.

I feel that since 2006, when Congressperson Cynthia McKinney discovered the prevalence of trafficking women and children within the US government and grilled Donald Rumsfeld about it, exposure has continued to increase at an exponential rate. This is why it wasn’t much of a surprise when I found out that James Grazioplene, a high-ranking retired army general who worked in the Pentagon as the Vice President of DynCorp, was charged with raping multiple children. His daughter has since been outspoken about how she was abused by him as well.

Labelling this type of thing as a conspiracy and fake news seems to be a common tool used by mainstream media, as they constantly ignore whistleblowers who’ve been trying to expose such activities. Dr. Steve Pieczenik, a former United States Department of State official and a Harvard trained psychiatrist with a Doctorate in International Relations from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), is one of them. He held many roles within the US political system, including as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Regan, and George H.W. Bush.

I recently wrote an article about him outing Bush Sr. for “grooming and playing with little boys.” He has also been very outspoken about the Clintons’ relationship with convicted elitist sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, and how both of them  allegedly abused little boys and girls. Ex-Nebraska policewoman, Kathryn Bolkovac, who served as a UN peacekeeper and worked under DynCorp, learned about elite level sex trafficking involving the UN, and also exposed the United States State Department as being involved. You can read more about that here. Cardinal George Pell recently became the highest ranking Vatican official to ever be convicted of child sexual abuse.

So, the point is that this stuff is actually happening, regardless of whether or not you think PizzaGate was real. The point to remember is that mainstream media will always present it as a conspiracy theory with no evidence, and will never give airtime to whistleblowers who are and have been exposing these activities for a long time. This is primarily because the mainstream media is a Deep State government run organization, and there is plenty of evidence of that.

PizzaGate was also famed by many insiders, like Michael G Flynn, who left Donald Trump’s transition team after this tweet. He is the son of Michael Flynn Sr who was Trump’s pick to be the US National Security Adviser. He is a retired United States Army Lieutenant General and is still caught up in all of the political issues regarding the supposed Russian interference in the US election. However, in my opinion, these are simply efforts to impeach Trump, given the fact that he is an outsider who threatens many Deep State agendas.

There is also plenty of evidence of this type of thing running rampant in Hollywood, and not just pedophilia, but Satanic ritual abuse as well. This is why I wasn’t surprised when I came across actor James Woods’ tweet on February 26th. Clearly he is alluding to something with this tweet.

To the left you can see Tony Podesta, brother of John Podesta, and to the right you can see actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The latest articles I’ve written about strange things happening in Hollywood were about Smallville actress Allison Mack and others being ‘protected’ by billionaire Clair Bronfman, a family that has close ties to the Rothschilds, because they are currently in court for running an alleged sex cult, and Beyonce’s ex-drummer accusing her of Satanism.

Tony Podesta is an American lobbyist, and the sculpture you see above is an exact replica of one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims. Dahmer was known as the ‘Milwaukee Cannibal.’ He was a serial killer and sex offender who committed the rape, murder, and dismemberment of 17 men and boys from 1978 to 1991. Many of his later murders involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts—typically all or part of the skeleton.

Michael Flynn Jr also tweeted a picture of this sculpture in 2016. On the left, you will see a graphic picture of one of Dahmer’s victims, and to the right you will see a sculpture by Louise Bourgeois, known as Arch of Hysteria, which was made in 1993 shortly after Dahmer’s crimes and jailing. You will see Tony Podesta along with Marina Abramovic. Abramovic is a Serbian performance artist based in New York whose parents held high positions within the Yugoslavian government. The Podesta emails mentioned above revealed that Tony Podesta received an email from her stating, “I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining?” It then shows Tony emailing John asking him if he is available. It’s dated June 28th, 2015 and you can read the full email from Wikileaks hereAccording to Wikileaks, “The Podestas’ “Spirit Cooking” dinner? It’s not what you think. It’s blood, sperm and breastmilk. But mostly blood.”

It seems to refer to some type of ancient ritual, but Abramovic was once asked about it and said it’s not meant to be taken seriously, and that it’s been misinterpreted by the masses.

Dahmer’s victims were prior to the making of the sculpture. That picture below of the headless victim of Dahmer is taken from  Vernon J. Geberth’s work, who is a retired Lieutenant-Commander of the New York City Police Department with almost forty years of law enforcement experience. It comes from the third edition of his “Practical Homicide Investigation: Tactics, Procedures, and Forensic Techniques.”

Tony Podesta seems to have a thing for Serbian artists. Below is a picture of his home taken by Laura Wainman from Washington Life Magazine. On the far left edge of the window you can see a painting of a schoolgirl wearing a red top and a white skirt. The first paragraph of Wainman’s piece on Podesta reads:

If you’ve ever dreamed of strolling through a museum with a slice of pizza and glass of wine in hand, you need to befriend superlobbyist Tony Podesta. Known about town as a legendary political “fix-it” man, Podesta has turned his Kalorama home into a shrine to contemporary art, ranging from relatively under-the-radar artists such as Serbian painter Biljana Djurdjevic to those who are much better known, like French sculptor Louise Bourgeois.

Bourgeois, just to reiterate, is mentioned above. She made the sculpture that seems to replicate one of Dahmer’s victim.

Below are some more paintings by Biljana Djurdjevic. You can find the one pictured above on her website as well as the ones shown below, which apparently Podesta also had in his home, among others. Pretty weird, isn’t it?

The Takeaway

Those we choose to call our leaders and those in positions of great power who have the ability to significantly influence what happens in our world may not actually care about the wellbeing of our planet. Within politics, many of these people present a certain image on the exterior, but on the inside, it’s a completely different story. Is this really that surprising? Our world is in a constant state of war, our environment is being polluted at an exponential rate, and disease rates are rising. The state of our planet and the corruption across the globe no longer come as a surprise to many, given that our leaders have been causing this destruction for decades.

Actions taken in politics and war are no less ‘psychopathic’ than the actions some politicians and world leaders engage in themselves within their private life. However, I believe that much of this turmoil is simply a reflection of our inner states. At a deeper level, we are all collectively manifesting this human experience. But the fact that awareness is spreading as light is being shined onto the darkness suggests that we’re finally ready to collectively change these experiences. Awareness is what leads to shifts in consciousness, and as a result of those shifts, humanity will begin to manifest action in order to stop these atrocities. The more exposure, the better, and this is exactly what we are seeing happen today.
