Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, according The Daily Beast. Epstein is reportedly due to appear in court on Monday, about 12 years after the 66 year old received a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls.

The new charges claim that “Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for ‘massages’ and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his residence in Palm Beach.”

Epstein’s abuse allegations date back more than a decade and have been recently brought to light by his victims and authorities. Up until now, and even in the midst of the #MeToo movement, Epstein has been able to avoid any type of meaningful jail time.

In an era where #MeToo has toppled powerful men, Epstein’s name was largely absent from the national conversation, until the Miami Herald published a three-part series on how his wealth, power and influence shielded him from federal prosecution. For years, The Daily Beast reported on Epstein’s easy jail sentence and soft treatment by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, which ultimately scrapped a 53-page indictment against Epstein. An earlier version of Epstein’s plea deal included a 10-year federal sentence—before his star-studded lawyers threatened to go to trial in a case prosecutors feared was unwinnable, in part because Epstein’s team dredged up dirt on the victims, including social media posts indicating drug use.

Employees and associates of Epstein allegedly recruited the girls for Epstein, and some victims also became recruiters themselves. The girls were as young as 14 and police allege that Epstein knew they were underage. Epstein’s attorney, Martin Weinberg, declined to comment Saturday night.

Epstein has been accused of transporting young women on his private jet to facilitate the abuse, according to his alleged victims. For more background on the allegations already made in lawsuits, and in the public domain against Epstein, read the full Daily Beast article here.

Recall, back in 2017, we wrote about former secret service agent Dan Bongino threatening to reveal new details about Bill Clinton’s 26 documented trips aboard notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”

Bongino dropped a ominous-sounding threat at the time: “…people know things not yet released publicly about your messiah Hillary. Don’t poke the bear loser, you may not like the results. #Epstein #EmailGate,” tweeted Bongino.

In addition to Clinton, Epstein also has ties to President Trump. One of his alleged victims was a 15 year old employee at Mar-a-Lago and various of Epstein’s allies have close ties to Trump.

Past alleged victims of Epstein include a 15-year-old Mar-a-Lago employee. Past alleged co-conspirators include Trump ally Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew. The architect of Epstein’s past federal sweetheart deal is current Trump administration labor secretary Alex Acosta. https://t.co/a5Y9NcJWqL

For those who are unfamiliar with his story, Jeffrey Epstein is a New York City financier who pled guilty in 2008 to a single count of soliciting sex from an underage girl. He eventually spent 13 months in prison and was forced to register as a level three sex offender (considered the highest risk of re-offending) though stories of his lust for girls as young of 12 have spread like wildfire in recent years.

Epstein allegedly installed beds in his custom jet, and also purportedly filmed powerful men during romps with underage girls to obtain materials for blackmail.

According to Fox News, Epstein allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on Epstein’s “Orgy Island,” an estate on Little St. James in the US Virgin Islands. Epstein now lives permanently in the US Virgin Islands.

Clinton chose to continue his association with Epstein even after the lurid trial, according to the Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, “everyone within his inner circles knew was a pedophile.” Speculation that Clinton was involved with Epstein was noted in “Bill Clinton Was Here”: The Elite One-Percent’s ‘Orgy Island’ Exposed.” An article by the now defunct Gawker titled “Flight Logs Put Clinton, Dershowitz on Pedophile Billionaire’s Sex Jet” added to speculation about Clinton’s troubling relationship with the convicted sex offender.

Back in 2017, we revealed the full flight logs from Epstein’s “Lolita Express”.

The Jeffrey Epstein saga has been going on for years, anybody who is interested in who he is will quickly find out many shady facts, one of them being the fact that he is a registered sex offender. Apart from being a sex offender, there are many victims who have come forward over the years claiming that he abused them, many of whom are under age. One example, out of many is Virginia Roberts Giuffre, pictured here with Prince Andrew, who seemed to have a very close relationship with Epstein just like the Clinton’s, and many other powerful people, Roberts claimed that Epstein abused children as well as loaned them out to many of his famous friends, including Prince Andrew.

Over the past few years alone, an abundance of evidence has come out that really show how deep this type of activity goes, from your favourite actors and actresses all the way into politics, through the military-industrial complex and into the financial elite, royal families as well as the Vatican. The last article I wrote on this subject dealt with child-pornography sharing by hundreds of employees and people connected to the Pentagon. You can read more about that here.

I also recently wrote about the NXIVM case and all of the connections it has to powerful people in the form of the financial elite as well as politics. You can read those articles here and here.

The latest news regarding Epstein was that he was arrested and taken into federal custody and is expected to appear Monday in Manhattan federal court. He has been in and out of court for years, dodging a number of charges. This time, he’s been arrested for child sex trafficking. A message was sent to Epstein’s defence lawyer seeking comment. Epstein is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in Manhattan, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website.

Specifically, it deals with the sex trafficking of minors in both New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, he is expected to appear in court tomorrow.

The arrest was made by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force, and it comes almost 12 years after Epstein didn’t receive any penalty except a slap on the wrist for supposedly molesting and raping children in Florida.

According to the Daily Beast:

The new indictment—which, according to two sources, will be unsealed Monday in Manhattan federal court—will reportedly allege that Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for “massages” and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his palatial residence in Palm Beach. Epstein will be charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors—which could put him away for a maximum of 45 years. The case is being handled by the Public Corruption Unit of the Southern District of New York, with assistance from the district’s human-trafficking officials and the FBI.

Several of the billionaire’s employees and associates allegedly recruited the girls for Epstein’s abuse, and some victims eventually became recruiters themselves, according to law enforcement. The girls were as young as 14, and Epstein knew they were underage, according to details of the arrest and indictment shared by two officials.

David Boies, the attorney for Virginia Roberts (mentioned earlier in the article) said that “it’s been a long time coming, it’ been too long coming it is an important step towards getting justice for the many victims of Mr. Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.”

The Jeffrey Epstein case has been the most prominent of many examples that prove how America has a two-tiered Justice system, and that people that are wealthy and well-connected will be shielded from prosecution or given lighter sentences. But perhaps this is all changing? While the implication is that our justice system is indeed rigged and controlled by the Deep State, we may just be arriving at the stage of our ‘Great Awakening’ when we are actually ready to ‘handle the truth.’ We are certainly not as naive about what is going on behind the scenes as we once were, even in the recent past. And there seems to be a new energy around that is now supporting the search for truth.

The Takeaway

There are more than enough examples showing how many of the people we idolize, vote for, and regard as stars, philanthropists, religious and political leaders are heavily involved in the trafficking and ritualistic abuse of men, women and young children. It’s quite overwhelming, and anybody with a clear head on their shoulders who dives into this topic will see what everybody else who is diving into it is seeing, that it’s real and far from a conspiracy.

That said, many are still in disbelief that this type of thing has been ongoing without any end for many years. The reason for that is because this entire network politics, the courts, governments and so forth. WE work for them and they are above the law.

Moves like this represent a shift in humanities consciousness where we are ready to see who are ‘leaders’ truly are and why there is a need to awaken to our individual sovereignty and personal empowerment.

We are living in a very interesting time, one in where we have a ‘ministry of truth’ that is quite Orwellian. This ministry of truth is deciding what’s real and what’s not for people, and they hold a tremendous amount of power and resources. Google is part of this ministry, and they are playing their part in censoring, demonetizing, and hiding information and platforms that does not suit the plans, agendas and the wants of the people that run Google and who are tied to.

One of the most recent examples I wrote about was with regards to one of the top natural health/health awareness websites in the world, Mercola.com. They like many others including Collective Evolution, have been censored by Google as well as their other social media platforms for simply sharing information. No matter how solid the evidence or sources are, it’s simply being censored because of what the information implies and because of the consequences it may have for those in power, and whose powerful interests that information may threaten.

Have we really got to the point where simple information can be censored just because it is threatening? Why do we have to have global elitists determining what is real and what is fake for the population? Is the population not capable of doing this on their own? Who are these ‘fact checkers?’

If we look at FakeNews watchdog NewsGuard, it provides some insight on who is behind this type of thing. They claim to hold independent media outlets accountable for their stories. They are funded by Clinton donors and big pharma, with ties to the CFR. They are one of many who have a clear agenda in favour of mainstream establishment media and some powerful interests.

This comes at the same time that multiple award winning mainstream media journalists and de-classified documents are exposing that mainstream media outlets are paid by and run by corporations, governments and intelligence agencies. You can see a few examples in this article, as well as links to some interesting documents. It goes into greater detail on the subject.

The truth is, for years the human population, especially in the west, has been, deliberately manipulated. Our thoughts, ideas and perceptions with regards to certain areas, like geopolitics, is, for the lack of a better word, literally programmed into us. Many of us, and most of us, for a very long time never really thought for ourselves, we’ve kind of been in zombie mode you could say.

For the past few years though, this clearly changed, and more and more people have been questioning what is really going on behind the scenes. This was a result of massive amounts of information that leaked out in the form of credible journalism from various independent media outlets.

There has been a deliberate manipulation of the opinions of the masses, and that those who manipulate this “unseen mechanism, constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power” of global geopolitics. Our minds are “molded, our tastes formed” and our ideas are “suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” (Edward Bernays)

Alternatives To Google & Why

All this said, when you search for things on Google, you will see what Google wants you to see, and it WILL shape the narrative by which you see your world. It will also push you to search for certain things over others.

Here is a great example. When you type in “vaccines cause a”, nowhere in the list do you see autism, even though that is one of the most searched terms on the subject. Instead, you see a very different list, see below.

Another great example would be anyone trying to search about the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

If you type in “hillary clinton email” you get no suggestions at all

But if you tested that against “donald trump email” you get normal suggestions.

As per an admission from Google executive Jen Gennai, this is because Google is trying to draw a line in the sand and tell people what’s right and what’s wrong in our world. You can learn more about her statements here.

The day we are shut down from questioning, and forced into measures and information against our own will is the day everybody should know something is very wrong.

Being a researcher myself, the amount Google has changed over the past 10 years is pretty crazy, and it’s not longer a useful neutral search engine as many sources of information have been completely blocked by their algorithms.

Here at CE, we don’t use Google anymore for pretty well any of our searches. We are also in the process of moving away from any other Google products we use like Gmail. Currently, most of us use DuckDuckGo here at CE.

Here is a great list of alternatives you can try instead of Google. It’s interesting to compare search topics and see what comes up compared to Google:

Here are ten alternatives to Google search:

  • StartPage – StartPage gives you Google search results, but without the tracking (based in the Netherlands).
  • Searx – A privacy-friendly and versatile metasearch engine that’s also open source.
  • MetaGer – An open source metasearch engine with good features, based in Germany.
  • SwissCows – A zero-tracking private search engine based in Switzerland, hosted on secure Swiss infrastructure.
  • Qwant – A private search engine based in France.
  • DuckDuckGo – A private search engine based in the US.
  • Mojeek – The only true search engine (rather than metasearch engine) that has its own crawler and index (based in the UK).
  • YaCy – A decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer search engine.
  • Givero – Based in Denmark, Givero offers more privacy than Google and combines search with charitable donations.
  • Ecosia – Ecosia is based in Germany and donates a part of revenues to planting trees.
The Takeaway

At the end of the day, truth in all areas that surround humanity cannot be stopped. The simple fact that ‘they’ had to de-platform, de-monetize and censor various media outlets around the globe, all except the small handful of mainstream media outlets, simply exposed even more what’s really going on here.

As much as this seems rough, this is inspiring. The global elite is losing so much power that their desperation is kicking in. And just because works of fiction might suggest that sometimes the “bad guys” win, does not mean it’s going to happen here. In fact, I know you can feel that we are going to make through a big shift here, and acts like this further reveal the truth to the people. Keep on thinking for yourself and connecting with who you truly are, it’s the way forward!

One of the greatest triumphs of biomedical science today is its role in validating ancient healing modalities that long before the advent of science, and even recorded history itself, were passed down “orally” from generation to generation in the vast body of folkloric medical knowledge that still forms the basis for the majority of the world’s primary health care system.  These so-called “natural” or “alternative” modalities, which our species owes its present day survivorship to after eons of dependency on them, are increasingly gaining the attention of men and women in white lab coats intent on unlocking the mysteries of how they work, and in many cases, why they work better than patented, synthetic, chemical-based medicationsNo better example of this today exists than turmeric.

The Immense Body of Research Substantiating Turmeric for the Prevention and Treatment of Disease

Over the course of the past seven years, we have indexed over 2,700 studies investigating the health benefits of turmeric (or its components) in disease prevention and treatment, discovering an astounding 800+ different diseases that it may be of value in ameliorating. The complexity of this substance in modulating over 150 biological pathways in the body, simultaneously, in a way that almost invariably produces positive results is simply astounding, and could be interpreted as exemplifying a type of plant intelligence if not also inter-species compassion between the plant and animal kingdoms.

The research continues to pile up, with a new published study added to Medline every few days; as of the writing of this article, there are over 9,000 published studies on the topic. In fact, our database on turmeric has grown so large that it takes an entire server just to load the data for professional members performing dynamic filtering by study type, date, etc.

Our regular followers know we report extensively on the evidence indicating that turmeric, and particularly the golden-hued polyphenol known as curcumin it contains, is superior to a wide range of pharmaceuticals both in safety and effectiveness. Some of the most compelling examples are listed below:

This is only a small subset of studies available that demonstrate the exceptional versatility of turmeric (curcumin) in disease prevention and treatment. You can search through more such research on our Turmeric Research database.

Why Turmeric Has Not Received FDA Approval

Considering the sheer density of data available today to support the health promoting effects of this safe and time-tested culinary ingredient, you would think the government would allow its use to “prevent, treat, or cure disease” — the technical criteria for something to be defined as a legitimate “drug” by the FDA. Indeed, the FDA mission statement includes the following objective:

FDA is also responsible for advancing the public health by helping to speed innovations that make medicines more effective, safer, and more affordable and by helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines and foods to maintain and improve their health.

When something so safe, so affordable, so thoroughly time-tested across a multitude of cultures, has so much evidence behind it demonstrating its ability to alleviate suffering, isn’t it highly unethical not to use it, especially in cases where conventional treatments fail?

Sadly, the FDA requires prohibitively expensive clinical trials to be conducted in order to grant the legal right for the populace to be treated by medicinal substances of any kind. In fact, the average FDA-approved drug on the market today required between four to eleven billion dollars in capital to be invested on the front-end. Non-patented substances, no matter how well they work to produce positive health outcomes, are obviously not capable of producing a return on investment as they grant no market exclusivity. Economic considerations (i.e. profit motives), therefore, are the primary reason why natural medicine is still only being practiced outside the medical industrial establishment’s mile high walls.

How did we arrive at this clearly cognitively dissonant place in time?  I addressed some of these issues in a previous article, Why The Law Forbids The Medicinal Use of Natural Substances,” looking at one of the historical roots of the impasse:

It is an interesting footnote in history that shortly after the Declaration of Independence, Congress declared that natural substances, e.g. water or salt, were God’s gift to mankind and that therefore products of nature should be limited in their patent protection. While this was a noble declaration, it has actually been used against those whose rights it would protect. It has forced private interests to synthetically alter natural substances — for instance the burgeoning biotech field of recombinant DNA technology, i.e. genetically modified organisms (GMOs) — for the sole reason that it guarantees them ownership/patent rights.

And so, because natural substances are a God-given gift [insert the word “Nature-given” if you prefer], freely available without adulteration to be used to treat and even cure disease, the medical system — whose present day focus is profiting off of disease instead of alleviating suffering — goes out of its way to avoid their use, even ostracizing and/or punishing those medical professionals who do incorporate their use in their practice. Likewise, capitalized pharmaceutical interests tinker with natural lead compounds to alter them in such a way that they are converted into xenobiotic chemicals, virtually guaranteeing their toxicity, and making their subsequent FDA drug approval as a novel patentable chemical compound the equivalent of the kiss of death.

This situation has created a great rift between those who believe the government should have the authority to tell us what we can and cannot do medically speaking, and those who believe it is our inborn right to choose food or natural substances to prevent or treat disease regardless of what the Sate deems legal.  Obviously, I stand on the side of health freedom.  As long as what you choose to do for yourself does no harm to anyone else, that right to choose should be considered inviolable and sacrosanct. Truth be told, turmeric harms no one but the bottom of line of drug companies. Ultimately it is highly unethical for the medical establishment to pay lip service to evidence-based medicine, and turn a blind eye to the accumulating research that this spice, and the 1,700 other natural substances we have indexed on our database, have no legitimate value as treatments for the wide range of ailments that now plague members of our society.

Despite the fact that this topic has been considered a “conspiracy theory” for years, any intelligent person who actually decides to take a gander at the evidence cannot really deny the existence of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) as well as the idea that some of them may actually be piloted by extraterrestrial beings from somewhere else in the multiverse. As far as UFOs go, there is physical evidence in the form of materials from downed crafts, radar trackings, pictures and videos. When it comes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis, there are witness testimonies from generals, other high ranking government officials, whistleblowers, and astronauts from all over the world. The fact that these crafts perform maneuvers no known man-made aircraft can also contributes to the extraterrestrial hypothesis.

Another factor to consider is the vast amount of stories that date back thousands of years told by several cultures all over the world, from ancient lore all the way to modern day lore. Indigenous cultures from North America are a great example.

My people tell of Star People who came to us many generations ago. The Star people brought spiritual teachings and stories and maps of the cosmos and they offered these freely. They were kind, loving and set a great example. When they left us, my people say there was a loneliness like no other. (source)

For the past few months, I’ve been sharing the work of Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a Professor Emeritus at Montana State University who is Cherokee/Choctaw and has been researching the Star People and collecting encounters between them and Native Indians for many years. She first learned about the “Star People” when her grandmother told her the ancient legends of her people. I’ve written about a story she shared regarding an elder who told a story about a ship that crashed on his reservation. You can read that story here. I wrote about another elder who shared a story of a petrified alien heart, which he claimed belonged to the Star People, and you can read that one here. My last one was about the stories told by indigenous elders about Star People who are currently, and have been for a long time, living inside of the Earth. You can read that one here.

This will be my fourth article sharing the stories Dr. Clarke compiled in her book, Encounters With Star People, Untold Stories of American Indians.

Chapter three is titled “Sometimes they come for families.” Right off the bat I find this interesting because having been a researcher into the phenomena myself for a very long time, I know that the idea that some of these beings are ‘taking’ people, families, and in some cases large communities is not uncommon.

It might sound scary, but the truth is that within the lore, many of these beings don’t have much interest in hurting or harming us. That being said, there are stories of both malevolent and benevolent types of beings, but for the most part it does not seem that the various groups visiting us mean us any harm. There are things happening that we don’t understand, or perhaps we’re not capable of understanding, yet some of these events we might perceive in a fearful, harmful way. When it comes to supposed abduction stories and the claims made by tens of thousands of people, there are many consistencies in their stories. It’s truly a very interesting issue to look into, but that’s a different story.

One example Dr. Clarke shares in her book is as follows:

In 1930, a fur trapper named Arnaud Laurent and his son saw a strange light and an unusual aircraft crossing the northern sky toward Lake Anjikuni in northern Canada. The trappers described the object as cylindrical or bullet-shaped. Shortly thereafter, Joe Labelle, another trapper, snowshoed to the Eskimo fishing village of Anjikuni. The village, home to 2,000 Eskimos, appeared unnaturally silent when he arrived. He visited every hut and storehouse and found blackened stew pots, but no people. Inexplicably, he did not find a single human track in the settlement. Labelle, concerned about the missing people, went directly to a telegraph office and reported the mystery to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Several hours later, the Mounties arrived and were baffled by the mass disappearance of the villagers.

A search party looked for the missing villagers, but they were never found. The sled dogs belonging to the Eskimos were found buried under a 12-foot snow drift at the perimeter of the camp. All of them had starved to death. The search party also discovered untouched provisions and food in the huts.

Later, that night, the Mounties stared in wonder as a strange blue glow lit a steady, pulsating light, unlike the Northern Lights that frequented that part of Canada. Newspapers throughout the world reported the baffling disappearance of the 2,000 Eskimos. Many people believed there would be a rational explanation for the disappearance, but the Anjikuni group disappearance remains unsolved. Today, stories are still told in the Eskimo communities about the UFO that abducted an entire village.

While this event in Canada is rare and unusual, there are encounters spoken about on reservations where entire families have disappeared without a trace. Just as in the case of the Canadian disappearance, these events occurred simultaneously with the emergence of a mysterious craft. During the course of my research, I was told about two such events. On one occasion a family of 14 disappeared, leaving behind plates that had been filled on the dinner table, a television blaring in the bedroom, and an oven that had not been turned off. Despite years of searching, no family member was ever located, but their relatives can show you a burned out circle on the ground where they believed a spacecraft landed and spirited them away.

Interesting, isn’t it? There are even entire civilizations that have vanished without a trace, like the Mayans for example. What happened to them still remains a mystery, and some believe they were also ‘taken.’ Writing this line in this moment reminded me of Apollo 12 astronaut Al Worden, who shared his beliefs about the subject a few years ago:

“We are the aliens, but we just think they’re somebody else, but we’re the ones who came from somewhere else. Because somebody else had to survive, and they got in a little space craft and they came here and they landed and they started civilization here, that’s what I believe. And if you don’t believe me, go get books on the ancient Sumerians and see what they had to say about it, they’ll tell you right up front.” (You can read more about that and watch him state this comment in the video linked within this  article)

It’s also interesting to note the fact that multiple astronauts have said, without a doubt, that we have been visited and are still being visited, and that they’ve been privileged enough to be in on that type of information. One great example would be Dr. Edgar Mitchell, was quite outspoken on the subject throughout his lifetime.  

Dr. Clarke then goes on to describe an encounter she had with someone who would eventually become her friend, an elder who lived on a reserve in North Dakota who had an alleged encounter with the Star People. He explained how Star People visiting the reservation was not uncommon when he was a child, but when the government came in and changed the land, the Star People stopped visiting.

This man’s name was Luther. According to him:

“Sometimes when people disappeared on the reservation, it was said that the Star People had taken them away to live in the stars. Once a whole family disappeared. I was a young man when the family disappeared. The disappearance happened right after I got home from the war, probably around 1946 or 1947 maybe. They were never found. When their relatives went to visit they found everything just like they got up in the middle of dinner and walked away. Food on the table and everything seemed to be in order, except the family. There were seven of them in all: they were gone. No one on the reservation ever saw them again. The held a ceremony and the Holy man said that they were taken to live among the Star People.”

He went on to describe his experience:

It was shortly after the dam was built. Maybe five or six years or so after the family disappeared. I was down by the lake one evening. The horses went there to drink in the evenings and I wanted to harness Peanuts and put him in the barn. It was just about dusk. Suddenly the hair on my body stood up like an electrical shock. I looked around and that’s when I saw it. A huge object came in over the butte to the north of the property. It came slowly. It was the size of a battleship.

I sat down on the edge of the lake and watched. The horses ran away. I was alone. The craft moved to the center of the lake and just stayed there without moving. It was suspended in mid-air. At some point, I started back toward the cabin. That’s when they saw me, I guess. Suddenly a light came out like a search light and fell directly on me. I kept walking. I didn’t know what else to do. When I got back to the house I went inside.

I went into the bedroom to look out the window and that’s when I saw them. Two of them. They were in my bedroom. I stopped, frozen in my tracks when I saw them. They looked at me and seemed just as surprised as me.

They were about 5 foot 7 or 8. They were dressed in light coloured uniforms that glistened when the light from the craft hit them. I started backing toward the door and they told me they wouldn’t hurt me. They were searching for something. I understood it to be something they had left behind or left here, but they could not find it. When I asked them what they were looking for, they replied, but I did not understand what they said.

He went on to describe how, when they went back in their craft and left, the craft stopped and hovered over the spot where the missing family once lived.

Their cabin was submerged in water after the lake was built by the government. I watched for maybe 30-40 minutes. The spaceship just hung there. No movement, no sound, and then suddenly it moved upward and was gone. I have not seen it since.

One thing Luther vividly remembers is the fact that they had this “stick like thing.”

It had some kind of motor, I think, because I remember lights blinking on it. Strangest machine I ever saw. I had never seen anything like that and I saw a lot in the War. They held it and pointed it around the room. The stick must have talked to them or something, because once they pointed it in every direction, they seemed satisfied that I did not have what they were looking for. They put it in a holster.

They told me not to be afraid and I wasn’t. They actually acted like I wasn’t even in the room. Just ignored me so to speak. They were all business. They were shaped like humans. I remember they wore gloves because I watched that stick machine while they were in the room. I still wonder how it knew there was nothing in the room they were looking for.

The Takeaway

There are countless stories regarding supposed extraterrestrial contact, perhaps even millions. They’re all scattered throughout history and many are similar to the ones shared above. To be honest, the consistencies and corroboration that come from examining multiple stories are truly jaw dropping. There are so many similarities between the stories told by these experiencers and the testimonies from actual whistleblowers, making one thing quite clear: Something is and has been visiting us for quite some time. I believe it’s nothing to be fearful of, but something to be curious of. Perhaps the more curious we become, the closer we get to finding out on a collective level.

The idea that some people are taken goes deep, far beyond the lore of stories such as this, but perhaps that’s the topic of another article. It’s safe to say, in my opinion, that we know it’s happening, as far as why and for what reasons, that remains a mystery. I personally, for the most part and in most cases, do not believe it’s a malevolent type of thing, but I don’t know and there seems to be evidence for both benevolence and malevolence.

Child pornography as well as the trafficking of women and children are some of the biggest issues in politics today. These types of things have been happening for a very long time and seem to be continuing due to the fact that those involved hold tremendous amounts of power. One of the latest examples would be the NXIVM case, where Claire Bronfman and her sister were implicated in a company whose leader was charged with child pornography, raping a child, and sex trafficking. The Bronfman family is a powerful family that has ties to politics, is in business with the Rothschilds, and has many ties within the entertainment industry. NXIVM and Bronfman were also accused of illegally donating to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

When it comes to the Department of Defense, stories like this corroborate with a lot of other information out there. Take ex-Nebraska policewoman Kathryn Bolkovac, for example, who served as a UN peacekeeper and worked under DynCorp, a military contractor, where she learned about elite-level sex trafficking involving the UN, the State Department, and the Military. You can read more about her testimony here. This could be connected to the time when former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney announced she was well aware of the corruption that was going on within DynCorp, addressing it in 2005. She grilled former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on the government’s involvement and compliance with military contractor DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children. This further corroborates with the story of General James Grazioplene, who worked in the Pentagon and as the Vice President of DynCorp, who is currently facing charges for raping minors as well as incest. (source)

This type of thing has been going on within the Department of Defense for a very long time. The latest example is that Congress is now looking at a bipartisan bill to stop employees from sharing child porn on Department of Defense computers. Yes, it’s a real problem, which begs the question: Where are these kids coming from? Who is making these kids ‘perform,’ who is filming them, and where are these high-ranking people getting this from?

“The notion that the Department of Defense’s network and Pentagon-issued computers may be used to view, create, or circulate such horrifying images is a shameful disgrace, and one we must fight head on.” – Abigail Spanberger (D-Virginia), spoken in a  statement on Tuesday as she and co-sponsor Mark Meadows (R-N. Carolina) introduced the End National Defense Network Abuse (END Network Abuse) Act in the House.

As The Hill reports, “The Pentagon’s Defense Criminal Investigative Service subsequently identified hundreds of DOD-affiliated individuals as suspects involved in accessing child pornography, several of whom used government devices to use and share the images.”

The question I am curious about is: Who are these people? If generals of the highest rank like Grazioplene can be involved, what about their superiors? What if the “Pentagon’s Defense Criminal Investigative Service” and those who are investigating this issue are involved?

These are all important questions to ask because this is exactly how this type of activity is allowed to exist and persist.

According to RT:

The Defense Criminal Investigative Services (DIS) will receive training in how to root out and successfully prosecute those using Defense Department equipment to access and trade child porn under the new legislation. The bill also integrates DCIS into a “multi-jurisdictional task force” with “federal, state, and local law enforcement,” social services and child protection groups to help victims of child sexual exploitation – and to roll back the tide of filth engulfing Defense Department networks

Again, this has been a well-known problem within the Department of Defense for years, and Congress has known about it for at least a decade. This begs the question: Have some members of Congress also been involved in this type of activity? Nevertheless, there are multiple examples of this problem within politics, like when Immigration and Customs Enforcement identified 5,200 people who “subscribed to websites that were known to contain child pornography” during 2008’s Project Flicker investigation. This also included hundreds of individuals that were “affiliated” in some way with the Defense Department, and some of them even used their own government emails and military post boxes. Many of these individuals had some form of security clearance, and some had very high level security clearances.

The bill would put into place what’s called the END Network Abuse Act, which would require the Pentagon to enter into agreements with groups like child protection services, law enforcement services, and more. Again, I am concerned that child protective services could be involved. Based on all of the research that I’ve done on this topic, this would not be unlikely.

This is a huge issue, and goes beyond just this story. This type of activity has Royal Family connections, and connections to powerful people and the financial elite all over the world.

Steve Pieczenik is 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). He’s been openly talking about this type of thing in elitist circles. You can view an example of him talking about the Clintons here. Here’s another one of him implicating Bush Sr.

An Associated Press investigation into the United Nations (UN) has revealed that over the past 12 years, there have been approximately 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation by UN peacekeepers and other employees around the world. The latest example to come out of the UN is from the ex-chief advisor for the United Nation’s Child Labour Program, Peter Dalglish, who was recently arrested for pedophilia.

Our Interview With A Survivor of Child Sex Trafficking – She Goes In-Depth

Anneke Lucas is an author, speaker, advocate for child sex trafficking victims, founder of the non-profit organization Liberation Prison Yoga, and creator of the Unconditional Model.

Her work is based off her 30-year journey to restore her mental and physical wellbeing after surviving some of the worst atrocities known to humankind before the age of 12. Sold as a young child into a murderous pedophile network by her family, she was rescued after nearly six years of abuse and torture.

We recently conducted an interview with her. Below is a clip from the four part series, as it was a very long and detailed interview. You can access the full interview HERE on CETV, a platform we created to help combat internet censorship and allow us to continue to do our work and get the word out about various issues and topics.

The Takeaway

If you watch the Anneke interview, you will see how there is a very positive and uplifting message that comes out of all of this. Human trafficking and child abuse represent the most untold stories of our generation, as they hurt millions of souls every year, many of them being children. The International Tribunal For Natural Justice (ITFNJ) is one of many organizations to bring awareness to child sex trafficking. You can read more about that here, especially if you are feeling hopeless about this issue.

We are slowly coming to terms with the fact that this happens at elite levels, done by some of the most ‘prominent’ and powerful people. It’s time to talk about it, and it’s time to ask more questions. Let’s keep disclosure coming.

Summertime should be a carefree time of year as we head out on vacation, go to the beach, or hike in the woods. We shouldn’t have to worry about the products that we use or the environmental toxins that might be hanging around. Unfortunately, in today’s world, our children’s bodies are getting bombarded with neurotoxins and cancer-causing chemicals at every turn. If we compare total body burden to a container, we can only fill it to capacity. Anything above capacity causes spillover or, in other words, allergy symptoms and ultimately sickness.

Here are some tips for reducing toxic exposure:

  1. Stop using chemical sunscreens.
  2. Stay away from conventional bug spray with DEET and other harmful chemicals.
  3. Avoid playgrounds and sports fields that use mulch made from recycled rubber tires.
  4. Reduce exposure to weed killers and pesticides found on grass, and in food.
  5. Do not drink from plastic bottles, especially ones left in the hot sun or a warm car.
  6. Prevent your child from drinking from a hose.
Chemical Sunscreens

It’s time we stop lathering our kids and ourselves with chemical sunscreen. Many ingredients in conventional sunscreens are not safe for humans or aquatic life. It is time that we stop using them. There is an abundance of data that links the ingredient Octinoxate to thyroid dysfunction, endocrine disruption, and reproductive toxicity. It is also believed to affect development, brain function, and metabolism. Oxybenzone, sometimes called benzophenone-3, is linked to endocrine disruption,  organ toxicity, and allergies. Homosalate is used to prevent the body from absorbing UV light. This ingredient is linked to hormone disruption and is believed to enhance the absorption of toxic bug spray and pesticides.  Other dangerous ingredients include: artificial fragrances and preservatives such as BHT, which when applied to the skin is believed to be associated with toxic effects in lung tissue.

Vitamin D3 – The Sunshine Vitamin

Despite widespread belief, moderate sun exposure is beneficial to our health. Vitamin D, especially the form D3 or “the sunshine vitamin,” is the only vitamin your body makes itself with the help of the sun. So be sure to get enough sun exposure to help the body make this essential nutrient. Low vitamin D levels in your blood are linked to a higher incidence of cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, depression, arthritis, and many other degenerative diseases. So, hold off on trying to protect yourself from the rays of the sun at every turn. Allow yourself to play outside, garden, and enjoy the rays in moderation.

Safer Alternatives

To protect ourselves from overexposure to UV rays and help prevent skin cancer, here are some tips:

  1. Cover-up. Wear hats and protective clothing when appropriate.
  2. Be more mindful about sitting in the shade or purchase a sun umbrella. UV rays are most harmful between 10 am and 4 pm.
  3. Shop for natural, mineral-zinc based, certified products free from toxic chemicals. Use products that are safer for your family and wildlife. When my family is exposed to extremely hot climates or when they are in the sun for extended periods of time, we use sunscreens by Badger, Babo Botanicals, Goddess Garden, and 7th Avenue products.
  4. Use lotion over sprays as to not inhale any particles, which may pose a risk no matter how safe the ingredients. Also, lotions ensure a more even application, so you know you are completely covered.
Conventional Bug Spray

Are you being poisoned by your bug spray? Most bug repellents contain DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) or Picaridin as their active ingredient. Many do not realize how harmful these chemicals are to their health. DEET is linked to seizures, slurred speech, confusion, rashes, and other neurological disturbances. It can melt plastic and other synthetic fabrics, so you can imagine what it may do to your body. DEET is also believed to cause cell death. Picaridin does not seem to carry the same neurotoxicity as DEET. However, it is a chemical created by Bayer in the 1980s and does seem to pose some risks. A review of reports to the National Poison Data System between 2000 and 2015 found only one moderate effect reported from the use of picaridin-containing products – the remaining cases were classified as having minor impacts including ocular irritation, pain, vomiting, and oral irritation.

Safer Alternatives

To protect ourselves from mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and other pesky insects, here are some tips:

  1. Wear pants, a hat, socks, shoes, and long sleeves, especially when venturing into the woods, dense brush, or tall grass with possible bug infestations.
  2. Be mindful of adding extra protection during the early morning and evening hours as well as during periods of peeked humidity. Use nets or bug zappers over outdoor eating areas. Place nets over strollers and baby carriers.
  3. Shop for natural insect repellants that do not use harmful chemicals. Use products that are safer for your family and wildlife. Just be careful about using bug spray that contains Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus on children younger than three years old. Some products I love that work extremely well are Skedattle – Natural Bug Spray, Buzz Away, and Herbal Armor.
  4. Make your bug spray. Mix ½ cup of witch hazel, ½ cup of vinegar, and one Tbs of rubbing alcohol with a generous amount of lavender essential oil, geranium oil, rosemary oil, and citronella oil (10-30 drops of each) in a glass spray bottle and apply.
  5. Rub any dried leaf from the lavender or mint family all over your body to the delicate parts of the body such as underarms, behind ears, and neck.
  6. Eat garlic and drink Cistus tea. Bugs hate both, and your skin will secrete them acting as a natural deterrent.
  7. Pretreat your clothing with natural repellants by spraying it ahead of wearing it.
Recycled Tire Mulch

Children and athletes are exposed to dangerous turf and playgrounds. There has been increasing evidence that rubber and other synthetic materials used on playground surfaces and athletic fields are toxic to our health. They contain phthalates (chemicals that affect hormones, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and other chemicals. These chemicals are also linked to an increased risk of birth defects and cancer.

Synthetic Pesticides & Weed Killers

From the food we eat to the grass our children play on, pesticides and herbicides seem to be everywhere. They are poisons designed to kill, and unfortunately, are harming more than what they are targeting. Not only do pesticides kill insects, they also kill the good gut bacteria (the microbiome) in our intestinal system that regulates our immune system as a whole, and they kill the bugs by targeting their nervous system. Ingredients in herbicides such as glyphosate target plants by specifically blocking the action of a critical enzyme that plants use to synthesize three amino acids (tyrosinetryptophan, and phenylalanine), which are essential components of all proteins.

Without the ability to synthesize these amino acids, the plants die. Humans ingest these chemicals daily… what could possibly go wrong? For starters, many published studies have proven the relationships between exposure to pesticides/herbicides and the deterioration of human health, including neurological disorders and cancer. And yet, many are still on the market and heavily consumed. To avoid these chemicals, we must eat organic foods and become more mindful of the grass we allow our children to play on.

Plastic Bottles

So many of us walk around drinking out of plastic bottles without realizing how unhealthy this can be. Water bottles, for example, contain phthalates. They are colorless, odorless, oily liquids. Phthalates are especially dangerous because they are linked to asthma and allergies, and they also mimic hormones and can damage the endocrine system. A 2009 study in Korea showed a strong positive association between phthalates metabolites in urine and symptoms of ADHD and other neurological dysfunction.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is another industrial chemical used primarily to make plastic water bottles. Some risks include adverse effects on the endocrine system and potential damage to brain synapses, resulting in an increased risk of depression, memory problems, ADHD and other neurological disorders, asthma, learning issues, aggression, thyroid dysfunction, and cancer. It is especially important not to allow these bottles to be heated, for example, when sitting in a hot car for a prolonged amount of time, these chemicals are known to leach out.

Plastic Garden Hoses

One of my fondest childhood memories is drinking water from the garden hose. We all did it, but was it safe? Unfortunately, PVC hoses often carry a warning that reads, “This product contains chemicals known to cause cancer and birth defects and other reproductive harm.” Many hoses are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which uses lead as a stabilizer. Other dangerous materials that are toxic to the human body often found in garden hoses are antimony, organotin, BPA, and Phthalates.

Summer is the season full of fun, action, and smiles. While it’s important to try to enjoy every moment of it, let’s keep our kids safe and healthy this summer by applying the practical advice outlined above.

One mystery of our modern day world is how products and services continue to gain approval that are clearly harmful to human health. Many of these products and services are completely exempt from any health and safety testing by our federal health regulatory agencies, or our federal health regulatory agencies become compromised by big corporations that seem to control them and dictate government policy. Along with these approvals comes mass marketing campaigns that are akin to brainwashing, they make the masses believe these measures are okay, as if they’re for our own good and that the human population is being taken care of. That, unfortunately, could not be further from the truth. People are still waking up to this fact, and in many cases have a hard time believing it. Again, that comes from massive brainwashing campaigns and ridicule campaigns that don’t address the issues being created by activists.

When it comes to 5G, the science is quite clear, this is a disaster waiting to happen and it’s already being implemented. The fact that this technology is even allowed to rollout is quite disturbing, given the fact that countless doctors, scientists, journalists and activists have already been creating awareness and publishing thousands of papers regarding the dangers associated with the bombardment of electromagnetic radiation we are currently experiencing due to wireless technologies and our favourite gadgets like our cell phones.

If you want to see some of this science for yourself, a great place to start is with the Environmental Health Trust, as you can access a lot of the peer-reviewed research there.

Furthermore, we here are Collective Evolution have written a number of articles going in-depth into this issue and linking this research within our articles. For example, the latest one we wrote about was with regards to Martin L. Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, who outlined in a new report the many health risks associated with 5G technology and wireless radiation in general. He called the 5G rollout one of the “stupidest” ideas in human history. You can access that report and read more about it here.

When it comes to the current 2G/3G/4G radiation the population has been exposed to, they’ve been scientifically linked to: lowered fertility, insomnia, fatigue, depression, anxiety, major changes in brain structure in animals, cellular DNA damage, oxidative stress, hormonal disruption, cancer, and much more.  5G is a completely new and more powerful concern.

Health professionals are gathering together to create awareness about this, which is very encouraging. For example, Dr. Sharon Goldberg, an internal medicine physician and professor, recently gave her testimony regarding the dangers of electromagnetic radiation. She said: “Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period.” You can watch that testimony here.

Brussels also halted the rollout of this technology due to health concerns.

Our Campaign To Stop 5G

It’s very easy to feel helpless about a situation like this, but fear is not the answer, and you don’t have to be scared.  There are a number of things you can do to reduce your exposure to electromagnetic radiation. You could unplug all of your devices in your home that emit it, like your TV. You could shut down your computer at night and turn off your phone/reduce the amount time you use it. You could buy EMF protective paint or clothing, you can go out and spend more time in nature, you can “Earth” yourself, or “ground” yourself as this is one of the best ways to restore your body to its natural state, biologically, after being altered by EMF radiation. And don’t forget about utilizing the mind-body connection. If you are aware of it, then you can use your consciousness to mitigate its effects.

We are running a campaign to perform proper investigative journalism on the subject of 5G. We plan to investigate the telecom industry and its ties to politics as well as expose its efforts to push 5G while ignoring the dangers and failing to perform proper safety testing. But we can’t do it without your support.

You can join this campaign to help stop 5G HERE.

 

Who is Dr. Joseph Mercola? Well, he’s a well-known doctor who left the mainstream medical industry and has changed the lives of many through various avenues, and one of those avenues is through spreading information and awareness. Mercola.com is one of the most popular sites that has been providing information that the powerful elite, mainstream media, and big pharma definitely don’t want you to know about.

According to one of their most recent articles:

Over the years, the government and business monopolies, including the likes of Big Tech, have formed a global alliance hell-bent on protecting and concentrating member profits. The price for keeping business going as usual is personal liberty and freedom of speech that may impact these fascist government-industrial complexes.

The major industries colluding to take over the government and government agencies include banking, military, agriculture, pharma, media and Big Tech.

The leaders of these industries have organized strategies to buy off politicians through lobbying and to capture regulatory agencies through revolving door hiring strategies and paid-for media influence through advertising dollars.

Big Tech has joined the movement, bringing in a global concentration of wealth to eliminate competition and critical voices — voices that bring awareness to the frightening future as our rights, freedoms and competition erode into a fascist sunset, all disguised as a means to protect you from “misinformation.”

This year, we’ve seen an unprecedented push to implement censorship across all online platforms, making it increasingly difficult to obtain and share crucial information about health topics. If you’ve been having difficulty finding articles from my website in your Google searchers of late, you’re not alone.

Google traffic to Mercola.com has plummeted by about 99% over the past few weeks. The reason? Google’s June 2019 broad core update, which took effect June 3,1 removed most Mercola.com pages from its search results.

Censorship is at an all time high, and it’s almost Orwellian. We now have a powerful group of people who make up the global elite and are now deciding for the people what is real, what is fake, what they are allowed to see, and what they are not allowed to see. This would be the modern day “Ministry of Truth” Orwell speaks of in his book, 1984.

Censorship has happened everywhere. Our social media platforms, for example, have also been demonetized and heavily censored. Any information, regardless of how well sourced or how truthful it is, could be censored if it threatens the elite.

It’ All Serving

Collective Evolution has been around for 10 years now, and we witnessed our site as well as many other credible alternative media sites present information that went viral. A lot of people have woken up to various things that threaten elitist control structures and corporate profits. This became so evident and information was spreading so far and wide that the elite had no choice but to target it, label it as fake, and completely censor/attempt to shut it down. It’s truly a badge of honor to have made it onto their radar.

The only issue with their plan is that this reaction from the elite ended up further exposing what’s happening. The fact that they are demonetizing a vast number of people, like Mercola, and censoring a number of websites has only opened more eyes.

This is a clear infringement of freedom of information. Although recent moves made by Google and others might be somewhat effective, in the long run they represent a positive step towards exposing the truth and furthering the ‘transparency’ movement that’s currently affecting all aspects of humanity.

The Takeaway

It’s truly amazing to see how much consciousness has shifted on our planet. Topics and information that were once deemed ‘conspiracy theories’ are now no longer considered that. This is all as a result of information coming to light. Heck, mass surveillance was once considered a conspiracy theory, despite all of the information and evidence that existed prior to the leaks from Edward Snowden. Information is changing the way the masses perceive the human experience, and as a result the human experience is changing. We are living in very exciting times.

No doubt more information will continue to emerge as we move through 2019 and beyond, further challenging the long-held beliefs the masses have been brainwashed into developing over the years. This is a positive thing, and it’s best to keep an open mind in this day and age as more paradigm shifting information continues to emerge, despite the efforts made by those who are threatened by it to completely shut it down, erase it and censor it. The truth cannot be stopped.

The life story of David Icke, as it turns out, is not just an interesting biography of a talented and relentless individual. His life itself is one of the best and broadest chronicles into describing the nature of the hidden forces of power and control that humanity has long been up against, forces that Icke has been directly confronting for decades in his books and lectures.

And so, in a new documentary entitled Renegade: The Life Story of David Icke, it is not surprising to learn that these very forces are behind the persistent covert interference that often prevents David Icke from speaking to an awakening public hungry to hear his message and insights. The work of ‘front’ groups and social media trolls pressuring venues to cancel his appearances is one of the prime strategies used, as Icke recounts in the film:

They tell the organizers that I’m going to go on the stage and I’m going to say a stream of racist things, none of which I have ever said, none of which am I ever going to say. What then happens, staggeringly, is instead of coming to you, and saying, “Well these people say you’re going to say this, you’re going to say that, what’s going on?” they pull the event! And we hear about the event we’ve been organizing for months, being cancelled, we hear about it in the media!

His experiences along his journey of speaking out against a hidden power, purveying so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ that have earned him mountains of scorn and ridicule that would have buried lesser men, only seem to have emboldened him and, by extension, emboldened a community awakened by his words. In the wake of having his website blocked by educational institutions and government agencies, and countries like Germany never allowing him to speak there despite his having reached out to over 70 venues, he returns to the telling question he has long been asking:

Here’s me, one person, who is supposed to be this great ‘nutter,’ and the system is desperate to silence what I’m putting out, and to stop as many people as possible ever hearing it. Why?

Today this question has, for many, become purely rhetorical, as the answer is self-evident.

Grounded In Higher Consciousness

One of the reasons that David Icke has not only endured for decades but is today more relevant than ever, is that the fundamental underpinning of his discussions is a profound understanding of the nature of consciousness. He can make incisive comments on the way our perception is being controlled by a global elite, because he has a strong grasp on the nature of perception itself, and how the material world is an illusory construct emanating from a deeper reality.

This grasp, we find out in the film, is partly derived from what Icke describes as a ‘presence’ that has passed on guidance and information into his mind, though clearly felt by Icke as an ‘outer influence’. It is this presence that originally guided him in a library to a book written by psychic Betty Shine, which he then read through in 24 hours. In March of 1990 he met with her in the hopes she could describe exactly what this presence was trying to tell him. She relayed to him the then-preposterous claim that he was ‘going to go out on a world stage and reveal great secrets… I would eventually be world famous, I would face enormous opposition, but ‘they’ would always be there to protect me.’

From that point on, his life became a fulfillment of this prophesy, replete with the synchronicities and insights needed to support the process.

We Need Him As A Teacher

In the film, we see that Icke has found a kindred spirit in Alice Walker, the renowned American novelist. Amidst the vast natural expanse of Walker’s California property, Icke and Walker express their mutual admiration and share their understanding of the urgency for humanity to challenge the status quo and awaken to what is really happening on the planet.

In their own ways, both have been willing to challenge convention and orthodoxy in the face of criticism and ridicule. And while both seem to be at peace with the manifestations they have already put out into the world, they also share a still-burning fire to participate in seeing this mission through, stoking the awakening of humanity to its highest potential.

We need him as a teacher, because some of the subject matter is so strange to most people, strange, just mainly because they are not used to thinking outside of a certain box, if you will.

I love his mind, and I think for people who enjoy exploring the nature of reality, and, you know, unreality, what he teaches is very intriguing. I, for one, am just deeply grateful, I feel I’ve learned so much, and it makes me feel more at home in the mystery. — Alice Walker 

The Takeaway

David Icke takes pride in the role he has played in the awakening process, and rightly so. He has taken the brunt of the scorn and ridicule that mainstream forces could heap upon a single individual, so that the rest of us could more easily transition to a higher perception. He sees himself as a renegade, in the company of those like Martin Luther King and Ghandi who successfully challenged the status quo. He believes it takes renegades who advocate for ‘non-violent non-compliance’ to make change in the world.

And while he continues to be motivated to go around the world speaking out against the powerful forces of control and enslavement, something in the serene tone of the film suggests that he is preparing to pass the baton onto others, and is seeking the open hands and open minds to which he may pass on the responsibility. He is talking about us. His final words in the film are, ‘The world needs renegades. And it needs them now. And it needs them fast.’

Dylan Charles, Editor
Waking Times

Around five months ago we here at WakingTimes.com noticed an unusual phenomenon on our Facebook page. We would post articles as we always had, including many articles that had been posted on our page previously, and later that day we would notice that the posts were gone. Disappeared. Vanished without a trace.

We never got any notifications about missing these missing posts, but if we tried to put the articles back up, they would instantly be taken down again. So we reported the problem to FB, thinking it was a robo-error that could easily be fixed. And more articles disappeared from our feed. And nothing got fixed.

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

Then we started receiving mail from our readers, letting us know that when they tried to share or even privately message one of these ‘missing links’ from their own personal pages, they would get denied and receive a notice from FB saying that the content they were trying to share was not allowed on FB as it ‘violated community standards.’

Ok, so it started with a few articles, then more, and then even more. About this time ZeroHedge reported a similar problem. Links from their website were being instantly and automatically refused by FB and no one could post these links to the social media platform.

Well, Zero Hedge raised hell and because of their reach and influence, the problem was corrected for them in a matter of days, and they have not since reported any issues like this.

For us, however, the list of banned links has continued to grow.

I finally started keeping track of these after some time, but it is difficult because FB does not ever alert us when it does this. The only way we know that a link has been banned is because we use a program called Meet Edgar to manage our content flow to social media, and this program gives us a red flag when a link won’t go through.

I have sent literally dozens of help requests and requests to review banned links, but in many months have never once received a reply from an actual person nor have any of the links been re-approved.

Anyhow, I really haven’t cared enough about this to raise a stink because I know clear and well what FB is about these days. I don’t expect the organization to have integrity on issues like this, and so I’m not disappointed.

That said, I recently asked our audience if they would like to see the list of known banned articles, and of course, they said YES!!

So, here are the 79 articles that you cannot post or share, but if you give it a shot you’ll likely get something like this…

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

Or this…

So, have fun with this. You’ll find that the range of topics includes a lot of personal transformation, matrix-busting, and natural health and wellness stuff. I’d like to believe this is all being done by some stupid, inhumane, robotic algorithm, programmed by who knows for who knows what reasons, but we really have no clue. In other words, it may very well be random, because it doesn’t make any sense to me.

Oh, and I’ve also been curious about how long it would take for an article about this to be banned from FB. LOL! I’ll let you all know when we now.

Here’s the list… Enjoy!

As of beginning July 2019 prospects look positive for a re-election ofDonald Trump as President in November 2020. Headline stock market and GDP figures all look positive…at the present. The huge unanswered question is whether that can be sustained until the fateful elections. We see signs already that spell potential trouble for the Republicans.

A major problem for the Trump prospects to win a second term in November 2020 is the fact that since 1913 no American President, nor the Congress, control the decisions of the central bank, the legendary Federal Reserve or Fed. What few are aware of is the fact that the Fed is not a government agency. This is despite the fact the President nominates persons to serve as directors. The reality is that the Fed is privately owned largely by the international banks and financial groups that control global money flows. They determine in complex ways the control of US money creation, the heart of the economy.

In December 1913 a cabal of Wall Street Republican international bankers led by J.P. Morgan, John D Rockefeller, Paul Warburg and cronies pulled off the fateful coup d’etat that saw “Democrat” Woodrow Wilson sign away the money power of the government to the bankers. Since then, the Fed has determined the course of the nation’s economy independent of the interests of the national economy or the citizens.

The President of the New York Fed, Benjamin Strong, as head of the most powerful of the 12 reserve banks, literally determined the fate of the US and Europe until his death in 1928. His interest rate policies were directly responsible for creating the 1920s stock market bubble and the October 1929 Wall Street Great Crash. That in turn led to the 1931 global banking crisis and the Great Depression. It was the Fed under Allan Greenspan that was responsible for the creation of the securitization USA housing bubble and also for its deliberate destruction into the “Great Recession” of 2007-2008, a key factor in the 2008 Obama win. This Fed is the real power over economic good times or bad.

It can be demonstrated that every recession or boom, every so-called business cycle since 1914 has been determined by the Fed. When Donald Trump became President he selected several directors of the Fed Board of Governors, including Chairman Jerome Powell beginning February 2018, apparently believing Powell would continue an easy money regimen.

When Powell and the Fed continued the Janet Yellen interest rate increases and withdrawal from Quantitative Easing by selling off the assets it bought after the 2008 financial crisis, the effects were initially overshadowed by the Trump tax law and other factors that spurred both the stock market, the dollar and the economy. By late 2018, however, it began to become clear that the Fed was on course to create a collapse of the post-2008 asset bubble in stocks and real estate, prompting unprecedented criticism from Donald Trump of Jerome Powell, his choice for Fed chairman.

By December 2018, almost a year into Powell’s term, financial markets appeared in freefall, the stock markets down by 30% in six weeks, junk bond markets freezing and oil prices down by 40%. At that point on the urging of a group of influential business people, Trump began to attack Powell for trying to create a new recession.

By March 2019 Powell announced the Fed would likely not raise Fed Funds rates as had been planned further in 2019, holding it at 2.375%, suspending plans to do three or four added rate hikes in 2019. Markets were euphoric.

But by then Fed prior actions had set into motion deep shifts in the economy which are now becoming undeniable. Monetary actions tend to have a lag effect of six to nine months in the real economy. The aggressive Fed tightening through the end of 2018 is just beginning to show damage in the real economy. This is beginning to concern the White House. Here are some preliminary indicators that all is not peachy.

Trucking and Agriculture

According to the Bank of America’s Trucking Diffusion Index for the week of June 21, the national truck freight outlook hit the lowest level since October, 2016, just before the US elections. More alarming, the indicator is down 29% year-on-year, the largest decline since the index started. The current US outlook for freight demand is at a five-year low. Reports are that the construction sector is struggling due to weather issues in key markets.

What this suggests is that the volume of goods being shipped by truck through the US economy is showing a not healthy trend. How long this goes on is at this point not clear. It is an indicator of real problems.

If we add to this the developing crisis in US agriculture, the picture becomes darker not only for trucking but for the overall economy. Record rainfall across the Midwest farmbelt has so far had a devastating impact on crop prospects well into the key summer growing season.

The US Department of Agriculture cut its estimate of the corn harvest, a rare event, in June. Farmers say the government is downplaying the crisis. In addition lack of Congressional action on the Mexico and Canada trade agreements and the Chinese restrictions on US soybean exports are combining to create one of the worst US farm crises in recent years. The US Farm Bureau Federation, a major lobby, has stated that a third emergency farmer bailout would be necessary if export markets for US farm products are not soon reopened. The Farm Bureau states that the combination of disruption of key export markets together with low spot prices, high inventory levels, a slowing economic outlook, and damaging weather across the Midwest, “could culminate into a full-blown farm crisis on par to the 1980s.”

These are not the only signs of storm clouds in the US economy. Sales of existing homes have declined on a Year-on-Year basis for 15 straight months. Rising interest rates are a major deterrent for home buying. Further, the monthly Philadelphia fed survey of Business Outlook expectations, which monitors expected company new orders, sales, employment and other indicators of business activity, registered a sharp drop from 16.6 in May to only 0.3 in June.

This all does not yet indicate a full recession in the overall economy. However it shows how vulnerable the fragile recovery from the 2008 debacle still is. In this situation the Powell Fed is not at all playing a constructive role.

Powell proclaims Fed Independence

On June 25, Fed Chairman Powell gave a speech to the New York Council on Foreign Relations, the original think-tank of the Wall Street bankers created in the wake of World War I parallel to the British Chatham House. In his remarks Powell stressed the Fed’s independence from political pressures: “The Fed is insulated from short-term political pressures — what is often referred to as our ‘independence,” Powell said. “Congress chose to insulate the Fed this way because it had seen the damage that often arises when policy bends to short-term political interests. Central banks in major democracies around the world have similar independence.” It was a declaration of independence from Trump.

The reality, as Donald Trump noted repeatedly in public speeches in March and April, despite the Fed statement about interest rate pause in March, the Fed has not stopped tightening. It is via the little-noticed policy called Quantitative Tightening, the moves by the Fed to tighten money liquidity in the banking system and economy by forcing major banks to buy back some of the almost $4 trillion in corporate bonds and other assets the Fed bought to bail out the major banks and financial giants after the September 2008 Lehman Bros. crisis.

In early 2018 as it was simultaneously raising Fed Funds interest rates, the Fed delivered a double-whammy effect on market interest rates by “selling” some $50 billion a month of its assets from the unprecedented Quantitative Easing (QE) experiment of 2008. QE was a de facto policy of Fed money printing by buying select bonds and other securities, including mortgages, from primary security dealer banks, giving them huge liquidity in return. QT is the attempt to put the QE liquidity Genie back in the bottle by reversing the process, a highly dangerous experiment, one by no means urgent.

As the impact of Fed QT actions began to cause alarm, in February 2019 the Fed agreed to reduce the tightening, but only from $50 to $40 billion a month until now. That comes to almost half-a-trillion dollars less liquidity in the economy annually, not small. If a recession now unfolds over the next 16 months until the November, 2020 elections, it will once again by the “gods of money” at the Fed and their banker backers who caused it. If Trump then loses the 2020 re-election it will owe more to the Fed than to his bizarre Democrat opponents.

Our planet is changing rapidly, and for the better. Despite all of the challenges we face, and the many issues that remain to be solved as well as measures being imposed on the human population that they really do not desire and have been speaking up against, like 5G, there is a lot of good news coming as a result of decades and decades of information, awareness, and activism.

This results from human beings taking matters into their own hands, instead of letting a group of corporations and ‘elitists’ makes decisions that do not benefit the planet and all beings that live on it. Those are the type of decisions, in this day in age, that we need, and everywhere we look there are signs of it, and this comes despite the fact that we never really hear a peep from mainstream media. For the most part, all we are presented with are problems, fear, chaos, anxiety, worry, and brainwashing campaigns that justify the stripping of both human, and animals rights.

The latest good news with regards to animal rights came from Canada, where they completely banned the captivity of whales and dolphins. That being said, what’s unfortunate about this is that their capture is still permitted for certain scientific purposes, which is absolutely brutal. Scientific study of these majestic, empathetic and extremely intelligent beings should be limited to observation, and beings that have passed away. Furthermore, Marine Land seems to be exempt for that law, and they are permitted to keep the ones they have in captivity there for live. They will probably breed them as well allowing for the sustainability of the park, which is hard breaking.

What gives us the right to do what we do to animals? This has all been the result of brainwashing and marketing, anybody who is in touch with their heart and has qualities of empathy would never condone the capture of any animals. It hurts to see another hurt, and for those who don’t think it’s hurt full and traumatic for these animals, you are severely misinformed.

Not long after the news came out of Canada, for the first time in 17 years, there will be no whaling in Icelandic waters, at least for this summer. Because of a shrinking international market for whale meat, and an overall shift in consciousness on the planet to a more compassionate and empathetic stance, along with an expansion of a no-fishing coastal zone, both of the nation’s biggest whaling companies are apparently putting a halt to their hunting season. No whales in Iceland will die as a result of human stupidity this summer.

As the Good News Network reports:

IP-Utgerd – a company specializing in harpooning minke whales – said that the expansion of the no-fishing zone would force their ships to travel farther out to sea, making the venture far more costly than usual. The company now says that they will be focusing on collecting sea cucumbers for the summer, according to Icelandic news platform RUV

The 2019 season will be the first time since 2002 that no whales will be harpooned in Iceland’s waters, after the country decided to resume whaling in 2003 in opposition to the International Whaling Commission’s 1986 moratorium.

In 2018, 145 fin whales and six minke whales were harpooned. Prior to this recent news, Iceland was/is one of only three nations — including Norway and Japan — that have chosen to ignore the international moratorium on hunting whales, established in 1986. Hvalur HF’s ageing whaling ships use exploding harpoon guns that cause immense pain and suffering to the endangered fin whales before they die.

The Takeaway

This type of thing has been going on for quite some time, and I’m proud to live in a world where massive amounts of efforts are being created and taken by a number of individuals and organizations to spark and create positive change. Like I said, there is a lot of ‘bad,’ a lot of deception and many things about our planet that we need to change. That being said, there is a lot of good too. And as Gandalf the Grey from the Lord of the Rings once said,  “Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.”

Empathy and love is returning to Earth, and it will continue to increase and expand.

If you’re half awake today you already know that in the last couple of years we have officially entered the era of digital censorship. Independent media organizations with hard-earned followings have been de-platformed from social media and have been ejected from online business services, bankrupting many of them. This happens mostly for ambiguous reasons relating to supposed community guidelines, but the more time goes by and the more outlets that get banned and censored, the clearer it becomes that someone up high has a real problem with independent thinking.

Media companies and small websites like mine, WakingTimes.com, have seen drastic reductions in social media reach, if not banned altogether. Our YouTube account was deleted in 2017 for no clear reason, nuking a bunch of interviews I had with amazing people like Edgar Mitchell and David Icke. We’ve seen major cuts to our organic search engine traffic, and we’ve had numerous ‘fake news’ watchdog sites add our name to blacklists of sites that are supposedly doing the world harm. Usually these sites are anonymous and offer no way to seek recourse.

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

Now, however, a new organization is working to position itself as the end-all-be-all of internet truth, and they have already developed partnerships with major tech companies, including Microsoft. NewsGuard is essentially a browser plug-in that will stand between you and the content you want to see, flashing you with warning labels, hoping to scare you away from sites and content that their organization has decided are unsafe for the net. This wouldn’t be a big deal if it were voluntary but this plug-in will soon be automatically installed for you on a number of browsers and operating systems.

Now, I’m somewhat unique in that I don’t take kindly of bullying of any sort, and strong-arming really chaps my ass. You might also say I’m a bit paranoid, but that doesn’t mean they’re not out to get me. LOL (that’s one of my favorite jokes, btw)

I guess, though, when you dive deeply into the shit storm that is modern life in a world with corrupt states and corporate oligarchs,  you start to really understand the value of your own sovereignty and look for ways to establish boundaries. And when everyone you admire is being put up against the wall, you realize that at some point you’re not going to have anything else to lose. That being silent and passive no longer serves as merits.

And while all of this sucks, for sure, I’ve never been one to complain. If life puts up roadblocks on one path, it’s better to start carving a new one. That’s the Taoist in me, I suppose. It’s also easier than ever for me these days to see the bigger, cosmic picture in all of this.

None of us get off this rock alive, but that doesn’t automatically mean that any of us really live either. You have to choose to be the creator of your own life, which is challenging to do when so many petty tyrants and overpaid a-holes want to control you.

So, you’re free to look up NewsGaurd up online, I won’t bother linking to them, and to make your own opinion of them, but since it’s not in my nature to endure arrogance and bullying I thought it would be fun to post here a recent email thread I had with them.

In a nut shell, they’ve been contacting sites like mine with a list of questions seeking to establish their dominance as the authority on objective journalism and the prevailing champion of public thought-safety on the net . I disagree whole-heartedly with their mission, as I don’t believe that you or anyone else needs a for-profit company protecting you from ideas and words.

In truth, though, internet censorship has already gone so far that none of us really have anything left to lose. I think we might as well at least make it known that we do not consent to being policed by fascist organizations masquerading as polite, good-cop, objective, safety buddies, whom we have to accept into our lives or else have our business shut down and wiped off the net.

Anyhow, here is an exchange of four emails I recently had with NewsGuard staff. By posting this I am hoping to create awareness about just how institutionalized internet censorship is becoming, and also to provide inspiration for other hard-working journalists like myself who may not have yet developed the courage to stand up for themselves when approached by organizations like this.

Resistance is a spiritual affair. It is an intentional confrontation with fear, and an act of sincere self love.

Read on if you’re interested to know how you’re favorite blogs and indy media sites are being butt-sniffed by over-funded corporate watch dog organizations like NewsGuard.

NewsGuard Email # 1 from Nina Zweig, NewsGuard Staff Analyst

Hi Dylan and Anna,

My name is Nina Zweig, and I’m a reporter for NewsGuard Technologies, a new service that reviews news and information websites for credibility and transparency based on widely accepted journalistic standards. These reviews, which include a written summary and a checklist of nine criteria, are intended to help readers have more context for the news they read online.

We’re reviewing WakingTimes.com, and I have a few questions about the site’s editorial standards and transparency practices that I’m reaching out to get your comment on:

1. One of NewsGuard’s criteria is whether a site regularly corrects or clarifies errors. I found one recent correction on the site, but could not find any others published after 2015. Would you be able to send me a few examples of corrections recently published by Waking Times?

2. Who is responsible for editing Waking Times’s content?

3. Another NewsGuard criterion concerns whether a website’s headlines are accurate. How do you — or whomever edits the site’s content — ensure that Waking Times’s headlines do not contain false information?

4. Can you comment on how Waking Times verifies the accuracy of claims such as those made about the safety of vaccines and 5G cellphone technology, or the existence of “chemtrails”?

5. Do you consider Waking Times to have a particular perspective? I see that you outline some of your beliefs on the site’s About page — could you elaborate on what’s included there?

6. Does WakingTimes.com disclose its ownership by Waking Media in any location other than its copyright statement?

7. Another thing that NewsGuard looks for in our review process is whether a site consistently provides the names of content creators, including either biographical information or contact details. This information seems to be missing from some Waking Times articles. Could you comment on how Waking Times readers can contact writers or learn about their background?

Thank you for your time. I hope to hear from you soon.

Best,

Hi Nina,

I’ve been looking forward to hearing from NewGuard, so it’s great to finally get a note of interest from you. I’m eager to answering your questions, but first, I do have some I have some questions of my own, if you would be so kind as to indulge me here.

Firstly, though, I am the editor and founder of the site, and Anna is no longer with us, so please consider myself to be your contact. I am the sole person responsible for the all of the content on the site.

My questions for you:

– I understand the NewsGuard is tasking itself with addressing ‘fake news’ on the internet, and is partnering with some very big companies to do so, therefore, to gain approval and endorsement from your organization could be very profitable for my business, while being at odds with NewsGuard’s ideology and political positions could prove to be financially devastating for my small business. What exactly do I need to do in order to prevent your organization from slandering myself and my company and thereby causing me grievous financial harm?

– If I politely decline to answer your questions, will it result in my site being slandered and blocked by NewsGuard, thereby causing grievous financial harm to my business, which supports myself, my wife and my three children?

– What are your credentials as a ‘Staff Analyst?’ What background and professional experience do you have, and how does this qualify you to be evaluating and potentially publicly slandering my business?

– Who is your supervisor and how my I personally contact them? Who is the CEO or President of NewsGuard and how may I personally contact them?

– How is NewsGuard funded? What is the profit model you are using to engage in this kind of research, and if it is funded by outside parties or organizations, who are the primary sources sustaining your efforts here? Are you a non-profit, or are you able to make money by harassing and slandering small publications such as mine?

– What are NewsGuard’s political biases and explicit and inexplicit motivations for conducting your work? What are the biases of its owners and leadership? How does NewsGuard intend to maintain objectivity when reviewing sites like mine? Who decides whether or not a bit of information is to be considered factual or not?

– Of the thousands of articles we have posted on hundreds of different topics, why did you only note vaccine, 5G, cell phones, and chemtrails in your email to me? Are these issues somehow of particular concern to NewsGuard, and if so, what are NewsGuard’s official positions on these particular issues?

– Should I happen to be at odds with your positions (which I am legally, ethically, and morally permitted to be), will this result in me being slandered and having my business grievously financially harmed by your organization?

– You asked me about headlines. Have you found any headlines on Waking Times that contain inaccurate information? Please let me know if you do, because the wording of your question implies that there is, and if there is, as editor of the site I certainly would like to know. That said, you might as well have just asked when the last time I beat my wife was. Ha… there’s some humor for you, if you’re allowed to laugh at your job, that is.

– In the past, it has been considered a crime to approach a business owner and strong arm them into complying with demands under threat of grievous financial or bodily harm. Is it legal for NewsGuard to publicly slander and cause grievous financial harm to my business should I choose to exercise my legal right to opt out of your friendly questionnaire?

– Are you capable of ascertaining our editorial perspective by looking at and reading our content, or do you require explanation above and beyond what you see and read on the site?

– Will you please provide me with a detailed list of names, biographical information, and contact info of all the employees, management and ownership of NewsGuard?

– A number of my colleagues and associates have informed me that your organization has treated them exceptionally unfairly and has slandered their organizations, causing them grievous financial harm. What recourse do I have should I experience the same treatment? Is there an appeals process to clear my good name should you ultimately decide to slander my business?

Again, thanks so much for your interest in our work, and I look forward to gaining a more thorough understanding of the scope and intention of your work.

Highest Regards,

News Guard Email #2 from Eric Effron, Editorial Director at NewsGuard

Dear Mr. Charles,

Please see the responses to your questions below that you directed to Nina Zweig. I am NewsGuard’s editorial director, so I thought I would respond myself.

– I understand the NewsGuard is tasking itself with addressing ‘fake news’ on the internet, and is partnering with some very big companies to do so, therefore, to gain approval and endorsement from your organization could be very profitable for my business, while being at odds with NewsGuard’s ideology and political positions could prove to be financially devastating for my small business. What exactly do I need to do in order to prevent your organization from slandering myself and my company and thereby causing me grievous financial harm?

NewsGuard endeavors to review and rate all sites, regardless of ideology, according to nine basic journalistic criteria, which we spell out in detail on our site, www.newsguardtech.com. Before we publish anything about a site that might be seen as criticism, we seek comment multiple times. Comments from sites whose editors speak with us are included in the write-up. Once our write-ups are published and we learn we made a mistake, we correct it quickly and transparently. We also invite sites that are not happy with the write-up to submit a response on our website.

– If I politely decline to answer your questions, will it result in my site being slandered and blocked by NewsGuard, thereby causing grievous financial harm to my business, which supports myself, my wife and my three children?

We think the write-ups are stronger and more valuable when sites respond to our requests for comment. However, if a site chooses to not engage with us, that does not change our approach and our desire to be fair and accurate.

– What are your credentials as a ‘Staff Analyst?’ What background and professional experience do you have, and how does this qualify you to be evaluating and potentially publicly slandering my business?

Everyone who writes or edits our Nutrition Labels is identified on the write-up, and the byline links to a biography on the site. Biographies for all our staff are available here.

– Who is your supervisor and how my I personally contact them? Who is the CEO or President of NewsGuard and how may I personally contact them?

All of that information is explicitly detailed on the website, including all contact information.

– How is NewsGuard funded? What is the profit model you are using to engage in this kind of research, and if it is funded by outside parties or organizations, who are the primary sources sustaining your efforts here? Are you a non-profit, or are you able to make money by harassing and slandering small publications such as mine?

Information about our investors can be found on our website here. Our business model involves licensing our content to tech platforms and others. We do not charge the sites that we review. That would be an obvious conflict of interest.

– What are NewsGuard’s political biases and explicit and inexplicit motivations for conducting your work? What are the biases of its owners and leadership? How does NewsGuard intend to maintain objectivity when reviewing sites like mine? Who decides whether or not a bit of information is to be considered factual or not?

We are journalists and aspire to be as fair and open-minded as we can be. Our motivation is to help consumers make wiser decisions about the news and information that they consume. We have give the highest ratings and the lowest ratings to sites across the political spectrum.

– Of the thousands of articles we have posted on hundreds of different topics, why did you only note vaccine, 5G, cell phones, and chemtrails in your email to me? Are these issues somehow of particular concern to NewsGuard, and if so, what are NewsGuard’s official positions on these particular issues?

We think it is important to let consumers know about content that may be false or misleading, especially on matters related to public policy and human health. We don’t take positions.

– Should I happen to be at odds with your positions (which I am legally, ethically, and morally permitted to be), will this result in me being slandered and having my business grievously financially harmed by your organization?

As mentioned, we seek to be fair and accurate — which is one reason we try so hard to engage with sites before we publish. If we make a mistake, we correct it quickly and transparently.

– You asked me about headlines. Have you found any headlines on Waking Times that contain inaccurate information? Please let me know if you do, because the wording of your question implies that there is, and if there is, as editor of the site I certainly would like to know. That said, you might as well have just asked when the last time I beat my wife was. Ha… there’s some humor for you, if you’re allowed to laugh at your job, that is.

Here are some of the Waking Times headlines that we would like to ask you about:

http://archive.fo/tyg5U
http://archive.fo/OgSUL
http://archive.fo/TLsHx
http://archive.fo/aKLWZ
http://archive.fo/mNJKe

– In the past, it has been considered a crime to approach a business owner and strong arm them into complying with demands under threat of grievous financial or bodily harm. Is it legal for NewsGuard to publicly slander and cause grievous financial harm to my business should I choose to exercise my legal right to opt out of your friendly questionnaire?

Sorry, but I’m not sure what you are referring to. As a journalistic organization, we seek comment before we publish. Again, we will treat you just as fairly if you agree to be interviewed or don’t agree. But your answers will likely make our review more complete.

– Are you capable of ascertaining our editorial perspective by looking at and reading our content, or do you require explanation above and beyond what you see and read on the site?

We mostly base our assessments on what is on a site, but are happy to get further insight from the people behind the site.

– Will you please provide me with a detailed list of names, biographical information, and contact info of all the employees, management and ownership of NewsGuard?

Here again is the link to our staff list.

– A number of my colleagues and associates have informed me that your organization has treated them exceptionally unfairly and has slandered their organizations, causing them grievous financial harm. What recourse do I have should I experience the same treatment? Is there an appeals process to clear my good name should you ultimately decide to slander my business?

Again, I’m not sure what you are referring to in terms of “slander,” but as I mentioned, if any site is unhappy with our write-up, we are happy to publish their response on our website.

If you have any additional concerns, feel free to contact me.

Hi Eric, I’m just now getting to this.

Again, thanks for such a polite reply. I’m an exceptionally kind and friendly person, and I’m sure that should you and I be sitting face to face with one another we’d have a spirited and intelligent discussion about all this. Honestly, though, I’m finding it difficult to muster such high virtue in our conversation here, as I have a very acute disdain for bullies and control freaks. And let’s be honest, your organization’s mission is to control what information people have access to. This is anathema to my worldview, plus it would be exceptionally naive of me to believe that your organization is truly objective and has no agenda. Especially considering today’s climate of partisanship and open corporate censorship.

Regarding the links you sent, I’m not sure what your concern is, other than you all seem to be very interested in the issues of chemtrails (which is now openly being referred to as ‘solar radiation management,’ ‘solar geoengineering,’ ‘atmospheric spraying,’ and ‘climate hacking,’ by mainstream news sources… https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2018/08/08/this-climate-change-hack-would-reflect-more-sunlight-not-such-a-bright-idea-study-says), 5G, vaccines, and alternative views on health and wellness.

Many sites like mine are being openly censored right now by social media platforms and other tech services explicitly for covering non-mainstream views on these very topics, so your mention of only these issues out of hundreds that we cover reveals that you do in fact have a bias.

Furthermore, one of the links you sent me (http://archive.fo/aKLWZ) is from an article that I had removed from our site years ago, although it lives on at archive.today. Not double checking this and sending me a link of something that doesn’t exist is exceptionally irresponsible of you, and the fact that you’re not actually taking the time to fact check your own email to me speaks volumes about your organization’s ability to fact check the entire internet. Have you ever even visited our actual site? I wonder.

But if you want to know more about these particular articles and the headlines, just read them. Our site is available to the public, which includes you. If you don’t agree with something or don’t like our perspective, then all you have to do is click on something else. It’s really that easy, so let’s not pretend like the world can’t survive without NewsGuard.

I will say, though, that I understand what you are attempting to do and while there certainly are sites on the net that deliberately publish lies and false information, it’s pretty obvious to even the most junior news censor and grade school imbecile that Waking Times is not in that category.

I must also say that I am philosophically at odds with your mission, and therefore cannot in good conscience participate in your efforts to assert yourselves as the most trustworthy, objective fact checkers on the planet. I just don’t think that the world needs your protection. Call me crazy. When I was a kid I used to ride a bike without a helmet, too. Go figure.

Really, my hunch is that you and I are different breeds. I believe in the power of people and the greatness of the individual, and I will forever advocate for freedom of thought and freedom of speech. You, on the other hand, seem to operate with the belief that people should be saved from thinking for themselves, and that somehow everyone else simply can’t live without having the opinions of NewsGuard injected in between themselves and something they want to look at online.

I mean, really, though, you’re just a bunch of dudes getting paid to do what you’re told. If your boss says to put a public warning on Waking Times because he doesn’t like the color of my hair, you, Eric, will do it, because you need the job and you like the money and benefits package you get for following orders.

And it’s not like St. Thomas Aquinas sits on your Board of Directors. You don’t have God’s wisdom in your back pocket. You don’t have some secret sauce that no one but NewsGuard can comprehend. Get over yourselves already.

As I see it, it’s a control freak thing, and while I’m sure you’re drawing a nice salary doing what you do, your efforts here amount to censorship, which is corrosive and destructive to free societies. I cannot and will not oblige.

The work I do is honest, of high integrity, it helps people who need our kind of help, and people the world over are free to take it or leave it. Unless, of course, your organization succeeds in placing your opinions of us in between us and our readers, which, I’m certain, is the most likely outcome of our conversation here.

I am highly educated, exceptionally intelligent, a very talented writer and editor, and also very well versed on my rights, which are fundamentally enumerated in the U.S. Constitution, namely in the Bill of Rights. I seek to illuminate perspectives on issues which are often under-reported on by mainstream news sources. I pursue ideas and viewpoints which resonate with my experiences and understanding of the world, and I openly acknowledge that most people out there don’t agree with me. And that is okay.

So until you actually merge with the government and form an actual Ministry of Truth, and then carry the full weight of law and state violence in your quest to police all content on the internet, I think I’ll pass on hoping to curry favor with you organization, no matter how polite you guys are.

This means that I’m okay with whatever it is that you want to say about us. Freedom is as freedom does, so have fun warning the world of the potential dangers of 5 articles on an independent media site containing almost 8500 articles.

Most likely, though, anything negative you say about us will result in stronger support from our audience and will help us maintain our image as an organization that isn’t interested in conforming to pressures and demands of corporate censors. I know that the readers whom appreciate our work will find us no matter what kind of warning label you put on us.

So, I guess you could say that my official position is that in my opinion the world just doesn’t need you guys or anyone else telling people what and what not to think. There are so many bigger problems you could be addressing with your resources.

So feel free to publish whatever you like about us, and please send me a link when you do.

And I’m 100% certain that you know what slander is, so I’ll pretend like you didn’t ask me that.

Have a sweet day.

We are having a Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer which happens on July 2nd in the Western world and July 3rd in the East. It will be visible from the majority of South America as well as Panama and Costa Rica. The path of totality will cross over parts of Chile and Argentina which is where the Sun will be completely covered by the Moon. It will appear as a partial eclipse in the other locations mentioned.

A Solar Eclipse is a supercharged New Moon which influences a longer term period then a regular New Moon. This one marks the beginning of this eclipse season which happens every 6 months. This is when we have a New Moon and a Full Moon occur near the Lunar Nodes, which is where the path of the Sun and Moon meet from our perspective on Earth. It will be followed by a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn on July 16th/17th. (Join my mailing list here to get my article on the next eclipse and other content).

Solar Eclipses reflect changes and shifts which affect the 6 months following and could also influence up to 6 weeks prior. You may or may not see the effects of it around the time it occurs, but you may feel it and then see it actually play out in the weeks or months following.

However, each Lunar Node period lasts approximately 2 years which is when we have a series of eclipses re-occurring in the same signs, therefore some of the related themes that are playing out could last that long. The Lunar Nodes moved into the Cancer-Capricorn polarity in November 2018 and will be there until Spring 2020. However, this eclipse is the most potent one in Cancer of this process. The final eclipses in Cancer-Capricorn will occur in the Summer of 2020 and will influence the following months.

The positions of the Eclipses and the Nodes reflect an evolutionary process in how we work with the energies of these signs. What results from this series of eclipses will have longer-term effects even beyond this period.

Solar Eclipse In Cancer Opposite Saturn and Trine Neptune

The shifts reflected in this eclipse and upcoming ones influencing us until late 2020 are connected to Cancerian energy. As a water sign, Cancer is associated with emotion, feelings, and intuition.

It is about nurturing, sensitivity, bonding, family, domestic life, security, comforts, and nostalgia. It is instinctual and protective yet can also be vulnerable, insecure, smothering, subjective, clingy, overly emotional, and attached to the past.

This eclipse opposes Saturn in Capricorn which is aligned with the South Node. Generally, we can be going through a period in which we may experience challenges and obstacles that  may be connected to ambitions, career, responsibilities, business, structures, boundaries, or social status. This will be strong until early Fall but could also play out longer in some cases. This energy will also be triggered on July 9th.

These challenges that can be coming up are likely going to help to facilitate some sort of endings or release that will unfold over the coming months. This eclipse shows that the changes and evolution in how we express Cancerian energy in new ways can be connected to how these obstacles affect us.

Alternatively, we may also experience a push-pull between mundane responsibilities and emotional needs. There may be challenges when it comes to balancing both, however, it can also be about integrating more Cancerian energy into our ambitions as well.

The eclipse is also in a trine with Neptune. Although the Saturn influence can reflect obstacles and challenges, Neptune in the equation can bring a theme of compassion, empathy, inspiration, selflessness, and oneness. Our intuitions can be stronger than normal and it can also be great for creative and spiritual pursuits. This will be strong from July 10th-11th.

Mercury Going Retrograde Soon, Mars Aspecting Mercury, Uranus and Chiron

Mercury will be going retrograde on July 7th/8th for three and a half weeks. It will begin in Leo but will mostly be in Cancer. This emphasizes some sort of reorientation of how we express the energies of this sign as also indicated by the Eclipse. Issues of the past may resurface to help address this and it will be a period in which we can see things in a different way.

Mars enters Leo less than a day prior to this eclipse and will join Mercury from July 7th-9th as it begins its retrograde. The beginning of retrogrades generally have more complications, and having Mars there can amplify the potential of irritability. We could have a tendency to make hurried decisions and it would be wise to not do so if there is risk involved.

Our thoughts, communications, and even commuting can have more of an aggressive tone and there can also be ego based conflicts. The best way to utilize this is to use our drive and revisit some sort of creative effort or self-expression. Issues pertaining to romance, sex, or children may also come up for some people.

From July 10th-12th, Mars will be in a square with Uranus and trine with Chiron. At best this can be good for actions that are innovative, unconventional, or holistically oriented. However, we may also experience disruptions and changes and would need to be flexible.

Although there will be a harmonious Neptune influence (mentioned above) at the same time, there can also be potential to feel rebellious and impulsive. Considering the retrograde, we need to be cautious about our actions. If something comes up that we want to change, make sure it feels right inside.

Things To Consider

Keep in mind that Eclipses are different than regular New Moons and they are not necessarily a time to be making intentions. It is best to just try to tune into it and pay attention to your feelings and what is coming up to help you in navigating the upcoming months to serve you in your personal evolution. The themes of the Eclipse will be connected to Cancerian energies, however, it also depends on how it is interacting with your personal astrology chart based on the day and time of your birth.

Here are some suggestions of things that you can be considering at this time. Do you need to be more empathic in how you relate with others? Have you been suppressing your emotional energy and feelings? If so, what problems has it been creating for you and what are possible solutions? Do you have comforts or addictions that are getting in the way? Do you need to be more nurturing and caring? Do you need to put more attention towards family, loved ones, or domestic life? Is the fear of being vulnerable inhibiting your growth, healing, or needed experiences?

The Eclipse will peak in Totality at 7:23pm and will begin just 2.5 hours prior. The exact time of this New Moon will be at 7:16pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Anytime I write an article regarding the presidency, it’s very important for me to mention the government within the government, because that’s what America has become, and became a long time ago. It started with the warning that president Eisenhower gave in his farewell address about the military industrial complex, and his warning that it could infiltrate and take over politics by emphasizing that; “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for a disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist.”

He was not the only one to reference and warn about the secret government, in fact, dozens of presidents and politicians in the United States and many others have been quite outspoken about the ‘powers that be.’ A quote I’ve used many times before, because it illustrates my point so well, comes from president Theodor Roosevelt, he said that “behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”

It’s not just quotes, it’s the fact that the “black budget” world has gotten out of hand, as well as false flag terrorism, among other things. A Michigan State University economist teamed up with multiple researchers, including Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development and they found trillions of unaccounted for dollars missing from housing & D.O.D. They went into more detail about the black budget, and you can read more about that here.

The point is, the presidency, as well has mainstream media, has long been controlled by this power, and more and more people are finally starting to wake up to that fact.

This is why when it came to the election of Donald Trump, things became interesting. No, this doesn’t mean we here at Collective Evolution “support” Donald Trump, at all, it simply means that so far, the Trump presidency has been the best example to see the existence of this secret government, and the government that exists within the government in the United States.

One of the plans of the secret government, for those who have done their research, is quite well known by now. It’s been to infiltrate multiple countries like Iraq, Libya, Syria etc by creating and funding “terrorist” events, so they (The US and their allies) can go in and become the hero, for not good reason at all. Former Four Star General Wesley Clark, who was the Supreme Allied Commander of Europe of NATO from 1997-2000. Clark said, in an interview with Democracy Now, that the U.S. had plans to invade countries in the Middle East, including Syria, for no justified reason at all.  He offered the sentiments of some within the American military, that they have a “good military” and that they can “take down governments.”  He spoke of a memo that described how the U.S. had “plans to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off, Iran” (source).

North Korea was included on this list, and if Donald Trump was not the president you can be assured that more “fake news” about North Korea would be shared and perhaps, there would have been a war, like we saw in Iraq and most recently Syria, with North Korea in order to infiltrate that country and install a government that is subservient to the ‘powers that be.”

But it can be confusing sometimes, because the relationship he built with North Korea is something that’s never happened in the history of the presidency, no other president would have been able to do this, the establishment clearly wanted to infiltrate and take over North Korea, like they’ve wanted to do with Syria and Iran, but Trump has not followed these plans as he is with Iran, for example.

Perhaps he too has been compromised in some way?

The global elite did everything in their power to ensure a victory for Hillary Clinton, the entire mainstream media machine was used to shift the perception of the masses, and completely brainwash them, as they’ve done for years. This time it was used to

A great quote I always use when talking about this comes from academician and researcher Richard Dolan, who stated a few years ago:

For more than a year, we have been told that Trump is a racist, sexist, xenophobe, liar, cheat, and narcissist. The attack bears all the marks of a coordinated effort among the major news outlets: CNN, NYT, WaPo, HuffPo, USA Today, and the rest. It reminded me very much of the concerted media attack against Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff which culminated earlier in 2016 in her impeachment and removal from power. In the case of Rousseff, we see what has been alternately described as a soft coup or a Wall Street coup, rather along the lines of the “color revolutions” of a few years earlier (which are now largely understood as CIA-NGO orchestrated). In both cases, pretexts were created and hammered home by an insistent media that whipped up public opinion. In Brazil, it worked. It seemed like it would work in the U.S.

Again, this does not mean that we support Donald Trump, he’s clearly not someone who should be a ‘leader’ that would represent the best interests of humanity and our planet, the point is, he was an ‘outsider.’ Our position on Trump can be more clearly seen in this video, but he clearly was not a part of what Obama, Bush, and Bill and Hillary were a part of, which is the fact that they were nothing but puppets for a higher power pushing the agenda of their superiors. Whether they are part of this agenda or were simply compromised in certain ways in order to do so, who knows?

With all of this being said, although Trump has done and said many things that clearly go against the agenda of this powerful elite during his presidential campaign and even during his presidency, glimpses and going back on his words have been seen, and it’s something we always seem to see from every president. His support and close ties with the biotech industry is one example, making it easier for genetically modified foods to be on the market as well as the spraying of harmful pesticides and insecticides. His support for vaccines after speaking out against them during his campaign. His anti-war rhetoric during his campaign has not matched his actions that are currently being seen with Iran, he seems to be pushing the idea that Iran is a threat when, based on my research, they are simply being labelled a threat for ulterior motives that the secret government or the Deep State wants to accomplish.

At the end of the day, yes, Trump represents something different, but in a sense, he also represents something the same as what we’ve had in the past. It seems people with big money and connections to some type of power are allowed to hold the presidency, perhaps that will change with the next election, we are starting to see candidates that we’ve never seen before.

Candidates That Seem Real & Could Possibly Make A Difference

Tulsi Gabbard. If she’s elected, would her rhetoric change like all the others did? She has done many great things already. For example, when she was a Congresswoman, Gabbard introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, the terms of which her website outlines succinctly:

The legislation would prohibit the U.S. government from using American taxpayer dollars to provide funding, weapons, training, and intelligence support to groups like the Levant Front, Fursan al Ha and other allies of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, al-Qaeda and ISIS, or to countries who are providing direct or indirect support to those same groups. (source)

She recently made an appearance on Joe Rogan‘s podcast. Rogan asked her about WikiLeaks founder Assange and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, and she stated that they should not be persecuted for disclosing information. She has called out big corporations and government corruption.

The point is, we are seeing things in politics that we’ve never seen before, and that’s a direct result of more and more people’s perception about our world changing, and it’s reflecting in all fields as we continue to go through this change.

Marianne Williamson is another great example, she recently called out Big Pharma for their power and control, and has been an advocate for change within, a  ‘spiritual’ revolution that is needed at the heart of modern day politics.

According to her:

“We must do more than respond to external political issues. We must address the deeper, internal causes that have led to this current dysfunction. We need a new, whole-person politics of love that stems not just from the head but from the heart, not just from intellectual understanding but from a genuine affection for one another. By committing to love, we will make a meaningful contribution to the joyful, fierce and disruptive energies that are rising at this critical point in time. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, “we must think anew, and act anew . . . and then we shall save our country.” (source)

The Takeaway

All aspects of humanity reflect human consciousness, and politics is clearly one of them. Political representatives that the establishment doesn’t want are usually ridiculed, mocked, and bombarded by mainstream media. This is because the global elite, who control mainstream media, want to control the perception of the masses and influence their minds, sort of make their decisions for them..

Despite this fact, every year we are seeing more and more candidates that reflect what’s happening with humanity right now, and that’s a huge shift in consciousness.

We are seeing things in politics that we’ve never seen before, and that’s a direct result of more and more people’s perception about our world changing, and it’s reflecting in all fields as we continue to go through this change.

Corruption still rules politics right now. It’s full of lies and deception and that’s something that needs to change if it’s ever going to serve humanity. Right now, it remains a giant distraction and prevents us from moving forward appropriately.

Republican Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed a bill into law Monday that will require some sex offenders to undergo chemical castration one month prior to being released from custody, and will also ensure that offenders have to foot the bill for the treatment.Under the law, offenders “convicted of a sex offense involving a person under the age of 13” will have to be chemically castrated a month ahead of release and would also be required to continue treatment “until the court determines the treatment is no longer necessary.” Offenders would also have to pay for the procedure, but a denial of their parole could not be based “solely” on an inability to pay.

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

Chemical castration is defined in the law as “the receiving of medication, including, but not limited to, medroxyprogesterone acetate treatment or its chemical equivalent, that, among other things, reduces, inhibits, or blocks the production of testosterone, hormones, or other chemicals in a person’s body,” according to AL.com.

If a given offender chooses to halt the treatment, the move would be treated as a violation of parole, forcing the offender to resume their incarceration.

“This bill is a step toward protecting children in Alabama,” Ivey said. The bill was passed by both houses of the Alabama Legislature last month.

The use of chemical and surgical castration in controversial across the globe and has come under fire locally from the Alabama Civil Liberties Union, who have argued that the bill raises constitutional concerns and is akin to cruel and unusual punishment—a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s 8th Amendment—while also violating people’s right to privacy.

Randall Marshall, the executive director of ACLU of Alabama, also noted that the law misses the mark in preventing child molestation. In a statement to CNN Tuesday, Marshall said:

“It certainly presents serious issues about involuntary medical treatment, informed consent, the right to privacy, and cruel and unusual punishment. And, it is a return, if you will, to the dark age.

This kind of punishment for crimes is something that has been around throughout history, but as we’ve gotten more enlightened in criminal justice we’ve gotten away from this kind of retribution.

Republican Rep. Steve Hurst, who put forward the bill, has emphatically defended the measure from accusations that it may be draconian or inhumane.

Last week, Hurst told local outlet WIAT:

“I had people call me in the past when I introduced it and said, ‘Don’t you think this is inhumane?’

I asked them, ‘What’s more inhumane than when you take a little infant child and you sexually molest that infant child when the child cannot defend themselves or get away, and they have to go through all the things they have to go through?’ If you want to talk about inhumane, that’s inhumane.

They have marked this child for life and the punishment should fit the crime.”

Several states have versions of chemical castration laws on the books. In 1996, California became the first state to pass a chemical castration law. Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Montana, Oregon, and Washington also require certain sex offenders to be chemically castrated, while Texas permits repeat sex offenders to voluntarily undergo surgical castration if they so choose.

Caitlin Donovan, a spokesperson for the National Patient Advocate Foundation, has also criticized the law, noting that it may lead to a slippery slope, ultimately having a much farther reach than currently envisioned. In a statement to CNN, Donovan said:

“Medical decisions should remain between a patient and their provider.

I worry about any precedent that allows the state to use health care as a form of punishment.”

An explosive letter alleged to be written by a Facebook insider who was Mark Zuckerberg’s lover from their freshman year at Harvard was hand-delivered to a member of the Anonymous Patriot’s Conclave a few days ago and published on their American Intelligence Media website (aim4truth.org).

For those with any interest in knowing whether or not Mark Zuckerberg is really the boy-genius founder of Facebook and author of the essential computer source code that anchors today’s social media giants, calling this letter ‘explosive’ may even be an understatement.

In terms of its authenticity, AIM said this as a preamble to the letter:

American Intelligence Media has been able to quickly verify that many of the claims insinuated in this “Zuckerberg Dossier” are true and this leads us to conclude that the document is authentic and exactly what it appears to be. The true authorship of this Zuckerberg Dossier is evident to members of the Conclave, but that supposition is speculation and the Conclave does not deal in speculation. Though, if one were to listen carefully to the admission of guilt by Sean Parker (a long-time executive of Facebook) which he made repeatedly before the press, you will hear that Sean knew all about the true creation of the social media giant and its evil intents and fingers the culprits.

Therefore, it is not hard at all to figure out who may have written this expose on Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook evil. You can even see the true motivation for writing this “tell all” about Zuckerberg at this time in history, just as Facebook is facing all kinds of charges, including  anti-trust violations.

From my perspective, I have tried to establish the credibility of this letter in terms of its consistency and its coherence with established facts, as well as with many of the other allegations surrounding this matter. Piecing together many aspects of this story, let’s see if we can arrive at a cohesive whole that appears to be the likeliest of explanations for what is going on now at Facebook and in the social media arena in general.

LifeLog

Our story starts with a project called ‘LifeLog,’ the handiwork of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) which is the research arm of the U.S. Defense Department. In the spring of 2003, DARPA brought LifeLog into the public eye, after having undoubtedly worked on it in secret for a number of years. LifeLog “aimed to gather in a single place just about everything an individual says, sees or does: the phone calls made, the TV shows watched, the magazines read, the plane tickets bought, the e-mail sent and received. Out of this seemingly endless ocean of information, computer scientists would plot distinctive routes in the data, mapping relationships, memories, events and experiences. LifeLog’s backers said the all-encompassing diary could have turned into a near-perfect digital memory, giving its users computerized assistants with an almost flawless recall of what they had done in the past.” (source)

If the unveiling of LifeLog was a litmus test as to whether it would be met with public acceptance, it failed miserably. According to a Wired article entitled ‘Pentagon Kills Lifelog Project,’ “civil libertarians immediately pounced on the project, arguing that LifeLog could become the ultimate tool for profiling potential enemies of the state.” The article went on to announce the cancellation of the project, able to give only scant details behind this decision:

Researchers close to the project say they’re not sure why it was dropped late last month. Darpa hasn’t provided an explanation for LifeLog’s quiet cancellation. “A change in priorities” is the only rationale agency spokeswoman Jan Walker gave to Wired News.

The article was dated February 4th, 2004, less than a year after it had been launched. Remember that date.

The Creation of Facebook

Legend has it that Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook at Harvard University purely from a result of pet projects founded in personal self-indulgence and computer programming genius. In part, this narrative was promulgated by the movie about this entitled ‘The Social Network.’

However, the letter in question, written by an alleged Facebook insider who was Mark Zuckerberg’s lover from their freshman year at Harvard, tells a much different story. In our latest episode of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, Joe and I discuss the credibility of this letter, and its implications about what we know about Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, and the possibility that this was a set-up all along:

Here’s how the letter starts out:

To Every Facebook User,

Mark Zuckerberg, and all of us who were there from the beginning, are lying to you and using your personal life as a government-controlled experiment in brain-washing and mind-control – basically a weaponized system of the military (CIA especially) that got out of control. At this point, Mark Zuckerberg has lost control of a company that he never really owned or operated. Truly, anyone who has ever worked with Mark knows that his mind is a blank and that he is nothing more than a parrot for the government handlers who created him. Mark is incapable of running a McDonald’s, let alone one of the most powerful companies in the world. Not even his name is real and his identity has always been covered up. Mark was chosen as child for a CIA training program because his relatives were some of the people creating the program.

The letter explains how Larry Summers, president of Harvard University, created a kind of competition between teams of programmers to develop a social media site that was ultimately what DARPA created Lifelog for—”a cyber-weapon that could control the minds of anyone that could be lured into it.” It was not really made clear in the movie that Larry Summers was a main player behind the motivations of not only Zuckerberg but many other teams of students to build a social network platform, as he had actually created a competition that would supposedly award a government contract to the victor. As the letter explains, Zuckerberg was really instructed to see what the other groups were doing more than develop something on his own:

The Winkelvoss twins had developed their own version in the competition for the government contract, HC, that they changed to ConnectU. Aaron Greenspan was developing  HOUSE System, and Paul Ceglia was working with Mark to modify his StreetFax software into a Facebook too. Mark developed nothing. Absolutely nothing. Even the famous “hacking” of the Harvard systems was not done by Mark himself. Mark was the middleman for those who were the overseers of the “big project”, as it was called.

This letter details how Mark was always sure that “he was only ‘placed’ at Harvard ‘for a while’ until his ‘position’ became available to him. Mark was certain that this promise of a position included a great deal of money and power.” The “big project” really involved the powerful players behind the facade of this “school competition,” which was always designed to frame Mark Zuckerberg as the genius that would go on to solve the problem of “scalability,” which is the capacity for a single website to accommodate millions of users at the same time without crashing, the key to these modern social media sites.

In a deposition from the lawsuit brought on by the Winkelvoss twins, Zuckerberg claims to have been able to crack this problem and create the programming code that would be the foundation of Facebook “between a week and two weeks or so” while studying for finals. The credibility of this can pretty easily be brought into question in the next section.

Michael McKibben and Leader Technologies

Michael McKibben is a software developer who has had a long-standing lawsuit against Facebook. It asserts that Facebook stole the code from him and his company Leader Technologies. A lower court jury ruled that Facebook had in fact infringed on the Leader Technologies patent, but that the patent itself was invalid because Leader Technologies had sought to sell the technology before filing a patent application.

The main importance of the code that Leader Technologies developed is that it provided that scalability that would be required for social media sites in order to expand exponentially as demand dictated. While Mark Zuckerberg claims to have written it in a week or two, it is in fact complex code known to have been developed over years by a team at Leader Technologies, essentially proving that Mark Zuckerberg could not be the creator of Facebook. In fact, the letter states that Mark Zuckerberg does not really understand this code nor would he be able to write a coherent line of it.

So how did this code come into the possession of Mark Zuckerberg? As it happens, Michael McKibben’s son was at Harvard and was working on the Larry Summer’s social media competition, and McKibben sent an email to his son with a white paper containing the code attached. It is known that Zuckerberg actually participated in hacking the Harvard servers, and told MSNBC that “I believe when Zuckerberg hacked into servers at Harvard, he got a copy of the white paper.”

Professor James Chandler

It was only when so-called patent expert Professor James Chandler got involved, though, that the theft of scalability equations could be completed. McKibben says that Chandler came onto the scene and started working with Leader Technologies, with the promise of helping them with their patents and the marketing of their product. He was received by McKibben with open arms. However, instead of helping them secure their patents and create licenses for their software, Chandler stole the code and provided it to IBM, who reconstituted the code as “open source” and distributed it around the world.

It turns out that Chandler was a part of the Summers project all along, and may have been alerted by Zuckerberg’s access of McKibben’s white paper to go and steal the code from Leader Technologies. The letter states the following:

Chandler and Summers had selected Mark as their front-man to lie and claim that he had written the source code for scalability. Chandler explained that the government had seized the source code from an inventor and his company for use in the DARPA Harvard Facebook project. He explained in very flowery intellectual property theft language that Mark may get sued by the inventor, but that DARPA would shield him. Mark told them he was willing to take that chance.

Facebook As An Extension Of The LifeLog Project

The pieces of this puzzle all come together with the realization that those in power have long had a plan for cyber-surveillance and mind-control that sets the technological infrastructure for a totalitarian global state, and that creations like Facebook, as well as Google, Amazon, and Youtube, for that matter, are revealed as pieces or stages of this construction. The idea that some boy genius had created Facebook and as a result of his individual talents has become a powerful billionaire, akin to the ‘American Dream’ rags-to-riches tale, is in this case just a cover story allowing those in power to advance their agenda of control and enslavement within society.

The fact that Wired announced that ‘The Pentagon Killed the LifeLog Project’ on February 4th, 2004 is interesting, considering that Facebook is known to have started on that very date, as described in this meme.

It would not be a big stretch to simply say that once James Chandler and the powerful forces behind him assured themselves that the code he stole had been tested and would scale for Facebook to serve millions if not billions of users at the same time, it was just a matter of flipping the switch from LifeLog to Facebook. Allegations that many of the DARPA programmers that worked on LifeLog are now working for Facebook only support this contention.

The Takeaway

Like never before, allegations of deception and wrongdoing in the highest reaches of power are flooding out and being revealed, and there are no signs of it slowing down. In fact, we really need to be preparing ourselves for a virtual tsunami of information as the majority of those who have been kept silent through bribes, threats, and non-disclosure agreements really start to feel that it is becoming safe for them to open up. Here at CE we really encourage our readers to see things in the context of the bigger picture, and from a place in consciousness above the fray. In doing so, rather than being angered or depressed by revelations of wrongdoing and enslavement, we can feel empowered to be an active part of the awakening and liberation of humanity.

Fluoridation is the addition of an industrial compound to the public drinking water for the purpose of altering the consumer’s oral health. Municipalities that add fluoride to their water supplies do so based on a “one dose fits all” approach.  This blanket approach fails to address the smaller size of infants and children and the larger proportions of water and other fluoridated beverages they drink. Significantly, a formula-fed infant drinks its weight in water every three to four days, resulting in the most vulnerable members of the population consuming by far the largest dose of fluoride.

Fluoridation advocates have acknowledged that fluoride’s predominant effects for growing decay-resistant, harder teeth come from topical use (i.e., applying it directly onto teeth) as opposed to systemic exposure (i.e., drinking or ingesting fluoride through water or other means). However, research also has indicated that fluoride does not aid in preventing pit and fissure decay (the most prevalent form of tooth decay in the U.S.) or in preventing baby bottle tooth decay (prevalent in less affluent communities). In malnourished children and individuals of lower socioeconomic status, fluoride may actually increase the risk of dental caries due to calcium depletion and other circumstances. Given this body of research—and Harvard experts’ warning that fluoride is one of 12 industrial chemicals known to cause developmental neurotoxicity in human beings—why do public health officials persist in claiming that water fluoridation is either necessary or safe?

[Researchers] found that the reasonable maximum exposure estimates exceeded the upper tolerable intake and concluded that some children may be at risk for fluorosis.

Overexposure and Dental Fluorosis

Exposure to excess fluoride in children is known to result in dental fluorosis, a condition in which the tooth enamel becomes irreversibly damaged and the teeth become permanently discolored, displaying a white or brown mottling pattern and forming brittle teeth that break and stain easily. Dental researchers have identified dental fluorosis as a first sign of fluoride toxicity.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released in 2010, 41% of children aged 12-15 exhibit fluorosis to some degree, up from 23% of 12-15-year-olds in 1986 (see figure below). These increases in rates of dental fluorosis were a factor in the U.S. Public Health Service’s 2015 decision to dramatically lower its water fluoridation level recommendations, from a high of 1.2 milligrams per liter (mg/L) down to 0.7 mg/L.

The downward revision of the Public Health Service’s recommendations for fluoride concentrations in drinking water fails to account for the fact that children are exposed to many different sources of fluoride on a daily basis. Exposure to these diverse sources has drastically increased since community water fluoridation began in the U.S. in the 1940s. In addition to water and other beverages, fluoride exposure occurs through food, air, soil, dental products used at home and in the dental office, and through an array of other sources.

Several studies conducted in the United States have offered data about children’s exposure to multiple sources of fluoride, as well as warnings about the situation. Markedly, a study published in 2015 by researchers at the University of Iowa considered exposure from water, toothpaste, fluoride “supplements” and foods. The researchers found that there was considerable individual variation in exposure levels and offered data showing that some children exceed the alleged “optimal” range. Highlighting the problematic nature of issuing recommendations about fluoride intake, the authors concluded:

[I]t’s doubtful that parents or clinicians could adequately track children’s fluoride intake and compare it [to] the recommended level, rendering the concept of an “optimal” or target intake relatively moot.

A similar 2005 study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago evaluated children’s fluoride exposure from drinking water, beverages, cow’s milk, foods, fluoride “supplements,” toothpaste swallowing and soil ingestion. They found that the reasonable maximum exposure estimates exceeded the upper tolerable intake and concluded that “some children may be at risk for fluorosis.”

… research completed by Dr. Elise Bassin while at Harvard School of Dental Medicine showed that exposure to fluoride at ‘recommended’ levels correlated with a seven-fold increase in osteosarcoma in boys who had been exposed between the ages of five and seven.

Pediatric Cancers and Fluoride

In 2006, the National Research Council (NRC) issued a report discussing the potential link between fluoride exposure and osteosarcoma. This type of bone cancer is one of the most common groups of malignant tumors in children and adolescents. The NRC stated that while the evidence was as of yet tentative, fluoride appeared to have the potential to promote bone cancers; the authors also cited biological plausibility due to “fluoride’s deposition into bone and its mitogenic effects on bone cells.” A mitogen is a chemical substance that triggers cell division (mitosis)—and cancer represents mitosis that has run amok.

While some epidemiological studies have failed to find an association between fluoride and osteosarcoma, research completed by Dr. Elise Bassin while at Harvard School of Dental Medicine showed that exposure to fluoride at “recommended” levels correlated with a seven-fold increase in osteosarcoma in boys who had been exposed between the ages of five and seven. Bassin’s research, published in 2006, is the only study about osteosarcoma that has taken age- and sex-specific risks into account.

… discussion has ensued as a result of several research studies published in 2018 that linked fluoride to underactive thyroid, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other adverse impacts on health and behavior.

Other Adverse Impacts

A large number of studies associate fluoride with loss of IQ. For example, a landmark study published in 2017 (funded by the National Institutes of Health) found that prenatal fluoride exposure was strongly associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring. Interestingly, silicofluoride—the fluoride compound used in the vast majority of water fluoridation schemes—has been associated with higher blood lead levels in children, and lead is known to lower IQ. Lead has also been linked to violent behavior, and research likewise supports the potential association of silicofluoride with violence.

Meanwhile, discussion has ensued as a result of several research studies published in 2018 that linked fluoride to underactive thyroid, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other adverse impacts on health and behavior.

Protect our Children, Protect our Water

While adding a developmental neurotoxin to the water supply endangers everyone in the community, infants and children are obviously at highest risk for harmful effects. In addition to the potential adverse outcomes for this susceptible population discussed above (cancer, IQ loss and thyroid dysfunction), water fluoridation poses other health risks such as arthritis, bone fractures and learning disorders. We need to protect our children—and protect our water—by learning the facts and demanding policies that reduce and eliminate avoidable sources of fluoride, including artificial water fluoridation.

By now it’s no secret that the presidency is controlled by ‘rogue’ interests. It’s fairly easy to see in this day in age, and we’ve had proof of it for decades. Be it the approval of deadly substances like glyphosate and the revolving door between the Environmental Protection Agency and Monsanto, for example, or the connection between terrorist organizations like ISIS and the U.S government, there are now a multitude of examples showing how or government agencies have been completely compromised.

Furthermore, and this is something mainstream media and neither touched nor mentioned, despite the fact that multiple presidents and politicians have been explaining this for a very long time. Perhaps presidents only become aware of it when they are ‘elected’ into office? Vladimir Putin, in a live interview a few years ago said that “a person is elected, he comes with his ideas. Then people with briefcases come to visit him, well dressed, in dark suits, kind of like mine. Except instead of a red tie it’s black or navy. And then they explain what to do, and the whole rhetoric changes, you see? This happens from one administration to the next.” (source)

It’s not just foreign presidents, one of my favourite quotes I like to use comes from President Theodore Roosevelt, who said that “behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.” (source)

There are so many presidents and politicians who have referenced this secret government, and so many modern day examples that provide evidence of its existence, like the black budget for example, it’s truly amazing how it still operates and renders the people powerless.

A quote by JFK is really fitting here:

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. (source)

This is why when it comes to the presidential race every four years, and the debates that take place to the lead of up towards the elections, the thought in the back of my head always comes to the forefront, is it even possible for a person to make any type of significant change from the presidency? Does the president even have much power? Is it already pre-determined who will be president, or who will be in the final few in a position to make a run?

For years the presidency has been used like a puppet for the most part. A little bit changed with the election of Donald Trump, he was clearly an outsider that threatened and still does in many ways, the powerful elite. That being said, he is still connected to and ‘working for’ powerful interests, a theme that really hasn’t ended for decades.

Without changing the system and our consciousness, can anything really be different as we move towards 2020? Or will establishment mouthpieces, like Joe Biden for example, continue to run the show?

Williamson Speaks Up

Another common theme is presidents making comments and promises during their election campaigns, and then doing a complete 180 degree flip on those comments once they become president. We’ve seen it with everyone. Donald Trump, for example, caught the attention of many when he questioned 9/11, called out the US government for creating terrorist organizations and funding them, and questioning the safety of vaccines. Now, Trump seems to be the puppet who is pushing for war with Iran, and a possible new infiltration campaign under the guise of bringing democracy to another country. His connections to biotech corporations are also very questionable. He also now seems to be a vaccine supporter.

But none of this should really come as a surprise. As it was far worse with presidents before him.

Those are just a few examples.

That being said, there always seems to be some hope during the campaigns leading up to the elections, and we’re seeing it again with little bits of truth spoken here and there. One of the latest examples comes from Marianne Williamson. The author and Democratic presidential candidate was asked a question about America’s health care system.

She responded by explaining that America doesn’t have a health care system, that it has a sick care system, implying that it doesn’t seek to prevent sickness, only make people pay for it when they inevitably get it. Not to mention the environmental toxins that continually increase as a result of choices huge corporations make and aren’t held accountable for. She called out the power of big pharma, which is also refreshing to see.

Politics Reflecting Human Consciousness

All aspects of humanity reflect human consciousness, and politics is clearly one of them. Political representatives that the establishment doesn’t want are usually ridiculed, mocked, and bombarded by mainstream media. This is because the global elite, who control mainstream media, want to control the perception of the masses and influence their minds, sort of make their decisions for them..

Despite this fact, every year we are seeing more and more candidates that reflect what’s happening with humanity right now, and that’s a huge shift in consciousness. Take Williamson, for example, according to her:

“We must do more than respond to external political issues. We must address the deeper, internal causes that have led to this current dysfunction. We need a new, whole-person politics of love that stems not just from the head but from the heart, not just from intellectual understanding but from a genuine affection for one another. By committing to love, we will make a meaningful contribution to the joyful, fierce and disruptive energies that are rising at this critical point in time. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, “we must think anew, and act anew . . . and then we shall save our country.” (source)

This is a very ‘spiritual’ type of perspective that we here at CE resonate with and have been saying this is what needs to happen within politics for 10 years. And it’s something that clearly resonates with many people. We, as a species, are in the process of ‘spiritually’ evolving.

Another candidate that has caught our eye is Tulsi Gabbard,

If she’s elected, would her rhetoric change like all the others did? She has done many great things already. For example, when she was a Congresswoman, Gabbard introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, the terms of which her website outlines succinctly: “The legislation would prohibit the U.S. government from using American taxpayer dollars to provide funding, weapons, training, and intelligence support to groups like the Levant Front, Fursan al Ha and other allies of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, al-Qaeda and ISIS, or to countries who are providing direct or indirect support to those same groups.” (source)

She recently made an appearance on Joe Rogan‘s podcast. Rogan asked her about WikiLeaks founder Assange and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, and she stated that they should not be persecuted for disclosing information. S

She has called out big corporations and government corruption.

The point is, we are seeing things in politics that we’ve never seen before, and that’s a direct result of more and more peoples perception about our world changing, and it’s reflecting in all fields as we continue to go through this change.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, it’s hard to see how voting, because I believe it’s completely rigged, can make a difference. Maybe it can, but the bottom line is that the system we have in place seems to be controlled by a higher power. Candidates that are truly fit to somehow represent the country and humanity are never really put into place. Politics and the presidency has never really been about the best interests of Earth and humanity and the entire system really needs an overhaul.

Change will not come from these individuals, if anything it’s one big distraction. Change will come from us. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for, you and me. That said, these individuals can help re-shape and change the conversations that need to be had, a very important step.
