Cornell University Physician: ‘I Was Wrong about Covid Vaccine Mandates’

By Foundation for Economic Education (FEE)

Scientists and public health officials must act more humbly and recognize the limits of their knowledge, writes Dr. Paul Fenyves.


The great martial artist Bruce Lee reputedly said that all mistakes are forgivable—if one has the courage to admit the mistake.

Paul Fenyves, a primary care physician in New York City who specializes in internal medicine, seems to have learned this lesson. Fenyves, a primary care doctor at Weill Cornell Medicine, recently admitted he was wrong to support vaccine mandates.

“I was initially supportive of Covid vaccine mandates in the Fall of 2021. At the time, I was told that Covid vaccines don’t only protect the individual receiving the vaccine, but they also benefit the community by reducing spread of the virus,” Fenyves wrote on the Substack Sensible Medicine.

Convinced that mandatory vaccination would create a “wall of immunity” that would bring the pandemic to an end more quickly, Fenyves said it seemed “reasonable to prioritize societal welfare over individual autonomy,” noting that early clinical trials of Pfizer’s vaccine were shown to stop 95 percent of infections.

“Surely a vaccine that prevents almost all infections would halt community spread, right? Wrong,” he writes. “Perhaps there was a time when Covid vaccines could significantly reduce community transmission, but that time was short-lived, and the virus quickly evolved and learned to evade vaccine-induced immunity.”

For Fenyves, his awakening moment came in December 2021, when Portugal experienced a massive surge of Covid despite a vaccination rate of more than 90 percent.

Fenyves concedes there are other reasons one could support mandatory vaccination even if it doesn’t reduce community spread, noting that some contend forced vaccination is moral because it’s done “for their own good.”

“I find these arguments to be weak justifications for violating an individual’s autonomy and mandating a medical intervention,” he writes. “Furthermore, these arguments are completely inadequate when applied to young people, whose risk of hospitalization from Covid is low, and whose likelihood of benefiting from vaccination is similarly low.”

Some may argue that Fenyves is right about vaccine mandates, but for the wrong reasons.

Vinay Prasad, an associate professor in University of California, San Francisco’s Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, argues vaccine mandates would be wrong even if there was a community benefit because the social costs are too high.

“My conclusion was always that the societal harm of mandates far exceeds any benefit, and as such I always opposed mandates,” writes Prasad in an introduction to Fenyves’s article.

Others might wonder why it took Fenyves until December 2021 to recognize he was wrong about vaccine mandates. Put aside for a moment that vaccine mandates violate bodily autonomy and the non-aggression principle, which makes them inherently immoral.

As early as August 2021 it was clear that “vaccine breakthroughs” were quite common and that naturally immunity conferred powerful protection against Covid. Why was it not until December 2021 that Fenyves realized he was wrong about vaccine mandates?

These are fair points, but they should not overshadow the larger lesson Fenyves is sharing, which is that scientists and public health officials must act more humbly with their immense power and recognize the limits of their knowledge.

“Those in the medical community who, like me, argued that vaccines should be mandated to protect the community should feel chastened,” writes Fenyves. “When considering mandating vaccines in the future, we should proceed with humility, acknowledging that our knowledge is far from perfect and our truths are often transitory.”

Two words in the last sentence are incredibly important: knowledge and humility.

These same two words are found in F.A. Hayek’s famous 1974 Nobel Prize speech, in which he warned against scientists and planners acting on “a pretense of knowledge.” Instead of recognizing the limitations of knowledge in an infinitely complex world, Hayek saw modern humans “dizzy with success” over the marvels of modern science, which had convinced them they possessed enough knowledge to engineer society effectively.

“The curious task of economics,” he famously wrote in The Fatal Conceit, “is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.”

The antidote to this fatal conceit—which Hayek warned leads to “grave consequences”—is humility.

T.S. Eliot once observed that humility “is the most difficult of all virtues to achieve,” and a lack of it is what lurked beneath the deadly collectivist schemes of the twentieth century, from Stalin’s Five Year Plans to Mao’s Great Leap Forward and beyond.

The “fatal striving to control society” is born of arrogance, Hayek understood. And it was this arrogance that led public health officials and politicians to decide they had enough knowledge to make life-and-death decisions for others during the pandemic, to decide what they had to put into their bodies.

Fenyves is right that a healthy dose if humility is in order, and that the knowledge we possess is far from perfect.

If we fail to learn this lesson, the consequences could be even worse the next time government officials attempt to prevent a crisis from happening.

Bald, Golden Eagle Deaths Permitted Under New U.S. Wind Energy, Power Line Rules thumbnail

Bald, Golden Eagle Deaths Permitted Under New U.S. Wind Energy, Power Line Rules

By The Geller Report

How many pipelines and energy projects were stopped dead in their tracks over some innocuous environmental concern or obscure fish “endangerment.”

By: The Oregonian, September 30, 2022:

The Biden administration has proposed a new permitting program for wind energy turbines, power lines and other projects that kill eagles, amid growing concern among scientists that the rapid expansion of renewable energy in the U.S. West could harm golden eagle populations now teetering on decline.

The Fish and Wildlife Service program announced Thursday is meant to encourage companies to work with officials to minimize harm to golden and bald eagles.

It’s also aimed at avoiding any slowdown in the growth of wind power as an alternative to carbon-emitting fossil fuels — a key piece of President Joe Biden’s climate agenda. It comes after several major utilities have been federally prosecuted in recent years for killing large numbers of eagles without permits.

The federal government already issues permits to kill eagles. But Thursday’s proposal calls for new permits tailored to wind-energy projects, power line networks and the disturbance of breeding bald eagles and bald eagle nests.

Fish and Wildlife Service Director Martha Williams said the new program would provide “multiple pathways to obtain a permit” while also helping conserve eagles, which she described as a key responsibility for the agency.

Bald eagle numbers have quadrupled since 2009 to about 350,000 birds. There are only about about 40,000 golden eagles, which need much larger areas to survive and are more inclined to have trouble with humans.

The number of wind turbines nationwide more than doubled over the past decade to almost 72,000, according to U.S. Geological Survey data, with development overlapping prime golden eagle territory in states including Wyoming, Montana, California, Washington and Oregon.

In April, a subsidiary of the Florida-based utility industry giant NextEra Energy pleaded guilty in federal court in Wyoming to criminal violations of wildlife protection laws after its wind turbines killed more than 100 golden eagles in eight states. It was the third conviction of a major wind company for killing eagles in a decade.

Federal officials won’t divulge how many eagles are reported killed by wind farms, saying it’s sensitive law enforcement information.

Nationwide, 34 permits in place last year authorized companies to “take” 170 golden eagles — meaning that many birds could be killed by turbines or lost through impacts on nests or habitat, according to permitting data obtained by The Associated Press. More than 200 permits were in place to allow the killing of 420 bald eagles, according to the data.

For each loss, companies are responsible for ensuring at least one eagle death is avoided somewhere else.

Illegal shootings are the biggest cause of death for golden eagles, killing about 700 annually, according to federal estimates. More than 600 die annually in collisions with cars, wind turbines and power lines; about 500 annually are electrocuted; and more than 400 are poisoned.

MADMAN: Newsom Signs Bill to Allow ‘Castration’ of Minors from Other States Without Parental Consent thumbnail

MADMAN: Newsom Signs Bill to Allow ‘Castration’ of Minors from Other States Without Parental Consent

By The Geller Report

The Democrats war on the family, the basic building block of civilization, is part of their war on G-d. This is a deep state culture that is embracing degeneracy, depression and death.

Eliminating parental authority, paves their way to absolute control and autocracy. The Democrats war on the family, the basic building block of civilization, is part of their war on G-d.

The case against this horrendous surgery is a whole other matter. Ten to 15 years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate of those who had undergone sex-reassignment surgery rose to 20 times that of comparable peers.

BREAKING: Newsom signs bill to allow minors from other states to receive medical gender transitions without parental consent

Newsom’s signature on the the bill, SB 107, comes nearly a month after the California legislature passed State Senator Scott Wiener’s bill, which was introduced in 2021.

By: Hannah Nightingale, Post Millennial, Sep 30, 2022:

On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law a piece of legislation that will designate the state as a sanctuary for children and teens seeking medicalized gender transitions.

Newsom’s signature on the bill, SB 107, comes nearly a month after the California legislature passed State Senator Scott Wiener’s bill, which was introduced in 2021.

The bill allows families or individual minors who traveled to the state for the purpose of these medical procedures to be safe from out-of-state authorities acting on subpoenas, warrants, and child custody issues if the minor was brought into the state for procedures like surgical gender reassignments or the prescribing of cross-sex hormones.

The bill would also “prohibit law enforcement agencies from making, or intentionally participating in, the arrest of an individual pursuant to an out-of-state arrest warrant based on another state’s law against receiving or allowing a child to receive gender-affirming health care.”

If a child comes into the state by themselves, the bill states that “A court of this state has temporary emergency jurisdiction if the child is present in this state and the child has been abandoned or it is necessary for an emergency to protect the child because the child, or a sibling or parent of the child, is subjected to, or threatened with, mistreatment or abuse, or because the child has been unable to obtain gender-affirming health care or gender-affirming mental health care.”

In addition, the bill that the state will not honor or enforce “A law of another state that authorizes a state agency to remove a child from their parent or guardian based on the parent or guardian allowing their child to receive gender-affirming health care” if a case is pending in California courts.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Newsom commended the bill during its signing.

“In California, we believe in equality and acceptance. We believe that no one should be prosecuted or persecuted for getting the care they need — including gender-affirming care,” Newsom said. “Parents know what’s best for their kids, and they should be able to make decisions around the health of their children without fear. We must take a stand for parental choice.”

It started with Obama’s ‘Safe Schools Czar’ Kevin Jennings who pushed books that encouraged children to meet adults at gay bars for Sex

By The Geller Report

Long time Geller Report readers know full well the sexualization of our public school children is nothing new. It all began with Obama. Remember, he appointed Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) which sponsored the conference that produced the notorious “Fistgate” scandal (in which young teens were guided on how to perform dangerous perversions including “fisting”) to head up “Safe Schools” efforts at the Department of Education.

It All Started with Obama: Barack Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Pushed Books that Encouraged Children to Meet Adults at Gay Bars for Sex

By Jim Hoft, September 24, 2022:

Earlier this week investigative journalist Christopher Rufo reported on the teacher’s union promoting how-to guides on “anal sex” and “fisting” to children.

This is shocking news to most Americans that the nation’s largest teachers’ union is promoting such material to America’s children.

“It All Started with Obama: Barack Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Pushed Books that Encouraged Children to Meet Adults at Gay Bars for Sex”>But this trend of perversion did not start during the Joe Biden regime. Back in January 2010, The Gateway Pundit reported on Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings. “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings and his organization GLSEN was encouraging children to meet adults in gay bars for sex. From our 2010 report: This story just gets freakier and weirder and the fact that the mainstream media completely ignores this dangerous man working in the Office of Safe and Drug-free Schools makes the story even more scandalous. You’d think the AP could peel away a few of its reporters from Going Rogue to investigate this radical czar. This avoidance by the democratic-media complex won’t keep us from reporting the truth. Our goal of protecting children is greater than our desire to protect a political party. Kevin Jennings’ was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) until he left his post in 2008. GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books for children that the radical organization believes all kids should be reading. The books on the list promote all kinds of radical ideas from child rape, to first graders having sex to the joys of prostitution. Recently it was discovered that these books were not only on GLSEN’s reading list but that Kevin Jennings personally promoted several of these books during his career. One of the books he promoted encouraged children to go to gay bars for sex with adults to see if they like it.

Mass Resistance Blog reported:

Jennings had recommended these books himself in his 1994 high school reader Becoming Visible (published by porn publisher Alyson Books). On p. 278 in his Questions/Activities section for Chapter 17, he wrote:

15. Other resources for reading are Bennett Singer’s Growing Up Gay, Ann Heron’s One Teenager in Ten: Writings by Gay and Lesbian Youth, Aaron Frick’s Reflections of a Rock Lobster: A Story of Growing Up Gay, and Paul Monette’s Becoming a Man. Films include Robert King’s The Disco Years and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, based on Jeanette Winterson’s autobiographical novel.

These questionable books (haven’t looked at the films yet…) have been described by Linda Harvey in 2002 (also here), NARTH (late 1990s), and more recently at Gateway Pundit/BigGovernment.com (Dec. 2009)…

UN Declares: ‘We own the science’ & ‘the world should know it’

By Marc Morano

‘We partnered with Google’ to ensure only UN climate results appear.


The United Nations revealed that they “own the science” of climate change and they have manipulated Google search results to suppress any climate view that deviates from UN claims.

Melissa Fleming, the UN’s Under-Secretary for Global Communications said at a World Economic Forum event: “We partnered with Google. For example, if you Google ‘climate change,’ you will, at the top of your search, you will get all kinds of UN resources…We were shocked to see that when we Googled ‘climate change,’ we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top…We own the science, and we think that the world should know it.”

[ … ]

Marc Morano comment: “As I wrote in my book, The Great Reset, the public health bureaucracy and the ‘climate community’ have become political lobbying organizations, and they are using ‘The Science’ to support their preferred policies—policies that dovetail with the Great Reset and advance the power of the administrative state.” The UN now joins Anthony ‘I am The Science’ Fauci in claiming ownership of science. Experts need to “own the science” because they want to own us.” – The Great Reset: Global Elites and the Permanent Lockdown – By Marc Morano

Climate Depot Special Report

The United Nations revealed that they “own the science” of climate change and they have manipulated Google search results to suppress any climate view that deviates from UN claims. Melissa Fleming, the Under-Secretary for Global Communications at the United Nations made the remarks at a World Economic Forum ‘Tackling Disinformation’ event on September 29, 2022 titled “Sustainable Development Impact Meetings 2022.”

Melissa Fleming:  (Full Video“We partnered with Google. For example, if you Google ‘climate change,’ you will, at the top of your search, you will get all kinds of UN resources. We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we Googled ‘climate change,’ we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top. So we’re becoming much more proactive. We own the science, and we think that the world should know it, and the platforms themselves also do. But again, it’s a huge, huge challenge that I think all sectors of society need to be very active in.” (Full transcript here)

As I wrote in my book, The Great Reset, “the public health bureaucracy and the ‘climate community’ have become political lobbying organizations, and they are using ‘The Science’ to support their preferred policies—policies that dovetail with the Great Reset and advance the power of the administrative state.”

“We trained scientists around the world and some doctors on TikTok, and we had TikTok working with us” — Melissa Fleming

Melissa Fleming – Under-Secretary for Global Communications at the UN

Via: Tim Hinchliffe of Sociable:

During the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Sustainable Development Impact Meetings last week, the unelected globalists held a panel on “Tackling Disinformation” where participants from the UN, CNN, and Brown University discussed how to best control narratives

Fleming also highlighted that the UN worked with TikTok on a project called “Team Halo” to boost COVID messaging coming from medical and scientific communities on the Chinese-owned video sharing platform. “We had another trusted messenger project, which was called ‘Team Halo’ where we trained scientists around the world and some doctors on TikTok, and we had TikTok working with us,” she said.

The UN, Anthony Fauci, and the WHO both claim to own “the science” of COVID and authoritarian mitigation measures like lockdowns.

See: Anthony Fauci: ‘I represent science’ “So it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science, because I represent science,” he said. “That’s dangerous.” & Fauci: ‘Attacks On Me, Quite Frankly, Are Attacks On Science’

COVID tyranny is expanding. See:‘The Science’ is tyranny! Australia doctors warned they ‘are obliged to’ follow public health messages – Also warned against ‘authoring papers’ that contradict public health messaging– Now you know how ‘the science’ is created!

California passed a similar bill: Stanford’s Dr. Jay Bhattacharya April 12, 2022 excerpts: “A proposed California law threatens to make such dissent career-ending by handing the state the power to strip medical licenses from doctors who disagree with government positions on Covid.”

The WHO’s “science” is under the influence of Bill Gates. Bill Gates is 2nd largest donor to the WHO: Morano Great Reset book Excerpt:

The World Health Organization’s second-largest donor, behind the United States government, is (drumroll, please) . . . the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. According to the 2018 WHO financial report, while the U.S. government’s contribution was in the amount of more than $281 million, the Gates Foundation came in at over $228 million—out of the total $2.2 billion that made up the WHO annual budget. (Gates gave over $324 million to WHO in 2017.) The Gates Foundation contributed more to the WHO than many developed nations.

Bill Gates also lavishly funds the media. See:Bill Gates buys the media: ‘Pumps out tens of millions of dollars annually to pay for positive media’ – Morano’s The Great Reset book excerpt– The Great Reset book by Marc Morano: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation pumps out tens of millions of dollars annually to pay for positive media. Media partnerships and sponsorships essentially buy slick public relations for Gates and his foundations. 

Bill Gates is also a Covid Profiteer: See: Between March 18, 2020 (the beginning of COVID Mania) and May 4, 2022, Bill Gates experienced a wealth increase from $98 billion to $129.8 billion, driven in large part from his COVID-related “investments.”

“The science” is routinely manipulated to support policies the government and bureaucrats desire.

The following is an excerpt from Chapter 6 of The Great Reset: Global Elites and the Permanent Lockdown – By Marc Morano

Chapter 6 (page 133) How “The Science” Was Manipulated to Support Long-Desired Policies

Excerpt:    At this point, no researcher looking for government research money would put his name on a study that was against the politically accepted views on COVID lockdowns or mask mandates or climate-crisis claims. During the COVID-19 panic, public health bureaucrats, politicians, and media figures constantly invoked “The Science” when determining how hard and long to hammer the public with lockdowns and mandates. In reality the Great Reset was underway in 2020, with the promotion of authoritarian COVID-19 “mitigation” measures utilizing decades of corrupted “science.”

French President Emmanuel Macron warned that, because of COVID-19, “We must all limit the number of people with whom we’re in contact with every single day. Scientists say so.”

“Scientists say so.” But which scientists “say so”? And on what evidence do those scientists base what they say?

In the age of COVID lockdowns and mandates, a pending Green New Deal, and a Great Reset, an insight of renowned economist Thomas Sowell is more valuable than ever: “Experts are often called in, not to provide factual information or dispassionate analysis for the purpose of decision-making by responsible officials, but to give political cover for decisions already made and based on other considerations entirely.”

Another name for it—Science to support the policy.

As C. S. Lewis warned, “I dread specialists in power because they are specialists speaking outside their special subjects. Let scientists tell us about sciences. But government involves questions about the good for man, and justice, and what things are worth having at what price; and on these a scientific training gives a man’s opinion no added value.” Lewis was sounding the alarm against the kind of technocracy that we live under thanks to COVID—the control of society by an elite unelected cadre of experts.

‘Science Lost’

“There was a clash between two schools of thought, authoritarian public health versus science—and science lost.”

—renowned Stanford epidemiologist John Ioannidis, expressing his opposition to COVID lockdowns

Whenever they invoke “The Science,” you know something other than science is at play.

“A theory becomes The Science when a mitigation or solution to the theory becomes more important than the theory itself,” explained Dr. William M. Briggs, coauthor of The Price of Panic: How the Tyranny of Experts Turned a Pandemic into a Catastrophe. “This is, as mentioned, the Cult of Science. Members are easy to spot. Not only do they use phrases like ‘We believe in The Science’ and ‘Denier!’—has there ever been a clearer indication of religious intent than this one word?—but they all evince scientism, the false belief that knowing a (‘scientific’) fact implies morally what should be done about that fact,” Briggs pointed out.

“In plain science theory is made to fit Reality. In The Science this is flipped,” he added. “The Science has nothing to do with science and everything to do with solutions and mitigations.” Briggs detailed how “how the theory-Reality relationship is reversed” because the “elites benefit from mitigations.”

He demonstrated by a thought experiment how “The Science” is not real science. “Say you disbelieve the theory but support the mitigation, and you will be praised. But say you believe all the models of exponential ‘cases’ and deaths, but you don’t think lockdowns and mask mandates should be implemented, and you will be loathed,” Briggs wrote.

“Try it with any science that has become The Science. Accept the theory but reject its mitigation. You will very quickly learn The Science has nothing to do with science and everything to do with solutions and mitigations,” he added.

Eisenhower Warned Us

We were alerted about being ruled over by scientists and experts. In his 1961 Farewell Address, President Dwight D. Eisenhower bluntly warned of this danger.

Eisenhower explained that “a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity” and “the prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.”

According to Eisenhower, “We must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”

Soviet-Style Science

“Communists saw their political beliefs as so all-encompassing that even science was political: if science contradicted the goals of communism, it wasn’t science. In today’s United States the slow death of liberalism has resulted in the blatant politicisation of science, to the extent that as in Russia, scientists teach things which are obviously untrue because it supports the prevailing ideology. Then there is the media, much of which parrots the party line with almost embarrassing, ‘Comrade Stalin has driven pig iron to record production’ levels of conformity.” —Ed West, deputy editor, UnHerd

Before the CDC’s Dr. Anthony Fauci supported “The Science” in favor of lockdowns, he supported “The Science” against them. In 2014, Fauci opposed quarantines of health care workers in response to Ebola as “draconian” and warned of “unintended consequences.”

Fauci complained about the “unscientific” policies of a number of U.S. governors who had imposed a targeted quarantine on health care workers arriving from Ebola-infected regions. “We have to be careful that there are [not] unintended consequences,” Fauci said.

“We need to treat them, returning people with respect,” Fauci explained during the outbreak of Ebola in Africa.

“You can monitor them in multiple different ways. You don’t have to put them in a confined place,” Fauci added.

“Go with the science,” he said.

But then the coronavirus came along, and suddenly “The Science” said exactly the opposite.

Journalist Jordan summed up Fauci’s duplicity on quarantines: “As we’ve discovered, the 50-year tenured government health bureaucrat wasn’t always a fan of quarantines. As recently as 2014, he was emphatically against them. Has ‘the science’ changed that much in the last 6 years, or is something else afoot?”

BOX

Fauci: I am The Science

In 2021, Fauci declared that attacks on him are “attacks on science.” He claimed, “A lot of what you’re seeing as attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science. If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking, not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science.”

Maybe “Science” Is a Liberal Conspiracy

A bumper sticker promoted by progressives reads: “Science is not a liberal conspiracy.”

“Oh yes it is. Or, yes, it can be, and much of it is. And here is where that bumper sticker is wrong. When the regulatory state—i.e., the Environ- mental Protection Agency, the United Nations, the U.S. federal govern- ment—when they want to regulate, they look for justifications and causes, and that’s the natural state of any government. . . . So essentially the regulatory state is using the climate scare now to achieve its ends. . . . The science must support the government policy, and the network of government and academic funding peer-pressure is designed to ensure ‘The Science’ ends up supporting the politicians’ favored policy. Any dissenters have to face intimidation and censorship.” —Marc Morano in a 2019 interview

When you believe you are saving the world, the only science that matters is “The Science” that supports your preconceived political views.

How Dual Diagnosis Affects Veterans thumbnail

How Dual Diagnosis Affects Veterans

By Kevin Morris Delphi Behavioral Health Group

Dual diagnosis is one of the most important concepts in assessing and diagnosing the complexities of substance use disorders (SUDs) and mental health. Even before the era of COVID-19, it was estimated that upwards of 8.2 million people had dual diagnosis. While dual diagnosis plays a vital part in connecting the puzzle pieces for anyone with an SUD, it turns out that dual diagnosis is especially prevalent among veterans. Here’s how dual diagnosis affects veterans and how we can help.

What Dual Diagnosis Is

The first piece of the puzzle is exploring the question of what dual diagnosis is. On its face, it might sound like a phenomenon to describe different SUDs that people experience at the same time, such as someone who struggles with alcohol addiction and benzodiazepine addiction, for example. This example and any variety of co-occurring SUDs can certainly make up a dual diagnosis. However, while dual diagnosis can speak to the complex condition of multiple SUDs at once, it most commonly refers to the connection between SUD and mental health.

For example, dual diagnosis identifies the co-occurring phenomenon of an SUD alongside mental health issues, such as depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, schizophrenia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The effectiveness of dual diagnosis is its respect for the complexities of addiction and the distinction between mental health and substance use.

Often, the mental unhealth of people who struggle with substance abuse is dismissed merely as the side effect of the substances they abuse. While this is certainly possible, it is not always the case, and the failure to distinguish between substance abuse and mental health can often leave people with an inadequate treatment plan and an unsuccessful recovery. Dual diagnosis seeks to investigate, diagnose, and ultimately treat people based on their full medical and personal/family history. On this last point, we can begin to sense the importance and the connection between dual diagnosis and veterans.

Dual Diagnosis and Veterans

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) shares on its website the mental health resources available for veterans. Moreover, mental health crises are so common among enlisted and veteran military service members that a military mental health crisis line is available, too. Common mental health conditions that military veterans experience include:

  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Sexual trauma
  • PTSD
  • Schizophrenia
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Substance use

When we think about the demands and complexities of military service, it’s easy to understand why this is the case. Perhaps the most common mental health crisis military veterans experience is PTSD. The reason for this is complex, but it includes issues such as combat experience, isolation, traumatic dreams, and the service era that veterans served in the military, such as World War II or the Vietnam War.

Military service members face a complex set of problems, risks, and deadly threats. Unfortunately, suicide is a regular threat for those who cannot cope with the mental and physical demands of military service, and suicide deaths are predicated by substance use in as many as 45% of army suicide attempts alone. After serving faithfully in the military, these problems do not simply go away with certificates or service medals; they carry on in the mental experience of those who transition from enlisted to veterans.

What to Do

It cannot be understated just how important dual diagnosis is among the military veteran community. However, dual diagnosis is only part of the problem. What can and should follow dual diagnosis is treatment. In this way, we should all be reminded of the crucial part we play, both in understanding and supporting the complexities of SUDs and mental health among our beloved veterans.

The better we understand the complex nature of what military veterans struggle with, the better we can support them in their recovery. Additionally, the better we understand the role of dual diagnosis among veterans, the more we can serve those who struggle with SUD and mental health conditions that have not yet received treatment. If you or someone you love is a veteran with an SUD and mental health issues, it is vital to seek out the medical help you need — medical help that takes the concept of dual diagnosis seriously.

Hurricanes Aren’t The Only Thing Climate Alarmists Lie About thumbnail

Hurricanes Aren’t The Only Thing Climate Alarmists Lie About

By John Eidson

How can climate alarmists explain away ancient megadroughts? They can’t!


As reported by Fox News, a 2015 study published in the journal Nature Climate Change compared 117 computer model projections during the 1990s with the amount of warming that actually occurred. Of the 117 projections, only three were roughly accurate. On average, the computer models predicted twice as much warming as that which actually occurred. The projections wildly overestimated global warming, so much so that it’s hard not to suspect that something fishy may have been behind the lopsided results.

Amid a relentless drumbeat of global warming hysteria dating to the early 1980s, NASA data showed that the period Feb. 2016 – Feb. 2018 was the greatest two-year cooling event of the last 100 years. So at least for that two-year period, apocalyptic forecasts of climate doom weren’t just wide of the plate; they weren’t even in the ball park.

Another indication that global warming forecasts have been embarrassingly off base was reported in the UK Express, which ran a story in 2018 with the headline “Climate change is ‘not as bad as we thought’ say scientists,” followed by the subheadline “Climate change is likely to be markedly less severe than forecast, study claims.”

For four decades and running, a virtually endless trail of horrifying predictions of imminent climate collapse has been trumpeted by an unquestioning western media. But despite the alarm bells, not one of those Chicken Little predictions has been on target, which brings me to the dire prediction described below.

“Risk of megadrought in southwestern U.S. could exceed 99%”

In 2015, California and much of the southwestern U.S. was in the final stage of a severe four-year drought. The same year, a terrifying study published in Science Advances forecast that man-caused climate change is making a catastrophic megadrought in the region a virtual certainty before the end of the century.

According to the study’s authors, the risk of a megadrought could exceed 99 percent. “This will be worse than anything seen during the last 2,000 years and would pose unprecedented challenges to water resources in the region,” said Toby Ault, a professor of earth sciences at Cornell University and one of the authors of the study. He continued, “As we add greenhouse gases into the atmosphere—and we haven’t put the brakes on stopping this—we are weighting the dice for megadrought conditions.”

I have a question for Professor Ault. But first, here’s an inconvenient piece of climate history which those who incite fear about droughts hope and pray voters will never discover:

Studies of tree rings, sediment and other natural evidence have documented multiple extreme droughts in the southwestern U.S. over the last 1,000+ years, including several which lasted more than twenty years—that’s FIVE TIMES longer than the relatively puny 4-year drought that hit California and other parts of the Desert Southwest in 2012-15.

Twenty years is a long time, but some past droughts in what is now the southwestern U.S. lasted even longer. Much longer.

One that began in the year 850 AD crawled on for a mind-boggling 240 years, and that megadrought occurred more than a thousand years before the climate fear industry dreamed up the man-made global warming theory in the early 1980s. According to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the drought of 850 was so severe that it led to the demise of an entire civilization—the Mayan Empire. And that drought wasn’t alone. Fifty years before it began, another megadrought, one which lasted 180 years, was just winding down.

With that bit of climate history in mind, here’s my question for Professor Ault: What caused  those megadroughts?

The professor and his co-authors know the answer, but don’t want you to know. They certainly can’t blame megadroughts of the last 1,000 years on the Industrial Revolution, which didn’t begin in earnest until the 1800s, a full millennium after those severe droughts wreaked havoc on what is now the southwestern U.S. and parts of what is now Mexico. Since they can’t scapegoat man’s use of fossil fuels for having caused those ancient environmental calamities, how do they and their allies in the climate fear industry hope to frighten you with the specter of an “unprecedented” megadrought that could be “99% certain”? They pray you will never learn about Earth’s climate history, that’s how.

Earth’s climate history is no friend of global warming fearmongers

Absent historical context, extreme weather can be overhyped in ways that lead the uninformed to conclude that unpleasant things like severe droughts never happened before humans began using fossil fuels. In fact, extreme climate events have occurred with monotonous regularity for a long, long time.

According to the Nature Education Knowledge Project, Earth has had a climate going all the way back to the Archean Eon, from 3.9 billion to 2.5 billion years ago. Only God knows how many megadroughts occurred over that time. But whatever the number, it has to be off the chart. When the next one arrives—and one most certainly will—Professor Ault will have been right about one thing: its cause will be Earth’s ever-changing climate, the same vexing culprit which caused the megadrought of 850 AD and 100% of the multitude of other seemingly endless droughts which have plagued the planet since time immemorial. Professor Ault’s prediction that greenhouse gases will be to blame for the next one is speculation based on what likely will be yet another in a long line of dire “studies” that left egg on the face of its authors.

In my Canada Free Press article “Green is the new Red,’ I explain why I believe beyond a shadow of doubt that global warming alarmism is the most brazen scientific hoax the world has ever seen.

Colorado School Board Proposes Toolkit Suggesting Educators Hide Student Transitions From Parents thumbnail

Colorado School Board Proposes Toolkit Suggesting Educators Hide Student Transitions From Parents

By The Daily Caller

A Colorado school board proposed a “gender expansive” toolkit that directs educators on how to address transgender and non-binary students, including keeping gender transitions a secret from parents, according to the Post Independent.

The Roaring Fork School Board in Carbondale, Colorado, heard public comment on Wednesday with plans to vote on the toolkit on Oct. 11, according to the Post Independent. The “Toolkit for Supporting Transgender and Gender Expansive/Nonconforming Students” advises educators to keep a student’s gender identity a secret from their parents if the student wishes and to make changes to school records as they see fit.

“We previously affirmed students’ rights without yet specifying supporting practices,” Roaring Fork School District Chief Of Student And Family Services Anna Cole wrote in a memo to the board. “We have since learned the importance of providing clear guidance and programmatic support, and have heard requests from students and staff for more explicit procedures. The toolkit is our response to these requests.”

The toolkit suggests a “gender tree” to explain gender identity and calls the soil, “societal influence,” which is the way “social, cultural and institutional influence” shape “gendered individuals.” Included is “fluidity and history” as the “rings of the tree” to represent a person’s “deeply-felt sense of gender” that can expand beyond man and woman to “genderqueer and agender,” the toolkit showed.

Under the “toolkit,” educators are advised to allow students to use whichever restroom and locker room corresponds with their gender identity. On overnight trips, students should receive accommodations “on a case-by-case basis with the goals of maximizing the student’s social integration.”

“It’s one thing to identify as a gender, but quite another to compel others to use special pronouns, and to open bathrooms and locker rooms to transgender students or allow transgender students onto sports teams of the opposite sex,” a board meeting attendee said to the Post Independent. “The rights of those not identifying as transgendered are being trampled.”

In Florida, a school board implemented a sexual education curriculum that links to Planned Parenthood documents and teaches 12-year-olds “all the ways pregnancy can occur.” An Ohio school is allowing educators to wear LGBTQ badges, despite parental pushback, in an effort to show students they are allies to the community.

The Roaring Fork School Board and Roaring Fork School District did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

The High Cost of Getting High thumbnail

The High Cost of Getting High

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

A new poll shows many in the U.S. are now smoking more marijuana than cigarettes, so it’s a good time to look at what increased marijuana use means for our future.

New research further documents the adverse effects of marijuana use on the young, even in the womb.  Prenatal cannabis exposure is associated with psychopathology in childhood and adolescence.  This includes rule-breaking, aggressive behavior, bad conduct, and social problems.  Thanks a bunch, mom.

Virginia legalized recreational marijuana in 2021 and is now seeing a spike in calls to poison control centers involving the consumption of THC products derived from hemp, edibles shaped like popular candies.  Most of the calls are from teens and young adults, and others concern kids age 5 and younger.  This is exactly what critics said would happen, because it happened previously in Maine and Colorado.

Another recent study showed marijuana is almost as addictive among 12-to-17-year-olds as prescription opioids.  There is also evidence marijuana can harm developing brains and cause mental disorders like anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia; lower IQ; and fewer career opportunities later in life. States that legalized marijuana are seeing a rise in the number of psychotic episodes among teens who are vaping high-concentration THC products.

The adverse health effects of marijuana are not limited to the young.  Marijuana edibles also produce overdoses in adults.  High-potency marijuana is linked to psychosis and addiction in grown-ups.  We’re talking about schizophrenia, paranoia, delusions, and running down the street naked.  None dare call it Reefer Madness, but you might call it that now, given that marijuana is so much more potent than it was a generation ago.  In addition, marijuana users are 25 percent more likely to need emergency care and hospitalization.  Marijuana users are showing up in emergency rooms with nausea and cardiac issues, among other problems.

Marijuana is causing more than personal health problems.  The number of drivers involved in fatal crashes testing positive for THC has doubled since marijuana was legalized in Washington state.  Oregon legalized recreational marijuana but is now plagued by illegal pot farms allegedly controlled by crime syndicates that deplete the water and steal farm equipment.  China, not content with flooding the country with fentanyl, is involved.

Let’s give lawmakers who voted for all this the benefit of the doubt and say they didn’t realize pot is ten times stronger than it was when they were kids, and didn’t think through the unintended consequences of legalizing it or heed warnings from those who did.   They probably didn’t realize Pueblo, Colorado was the future of all this, a town where doctors say their ERs look like horror movies, other drug use is up, families and kids are failing, there’s not enough foster care to deal with the wreckage, the town is hooked on marijuana-related tax revenue, and employers can’t find enough workers who aren’t stoned all the time.

But now, evidence of marijuana’s adverse effects and unintended consequences is piling up and lawmakers have no excuse.  It’s time to rethink the entire legalization enterprise.  In addition, this entire mess is subsidized by federal Medicaid money.  It’s time to look at that, too.

Busted: 4 Dozen Interviews Throw Bill Gates Under the Bus— Health Officials Admit Bill Gates Runs the World thumbnail

Busted: 4 Dozen Interviews Throw Bill Gates Under the Bus— Health Officials Admit Bill Gates Runs the World

By MERCOLA Take Control of Your Health

In a report published in Politico, US and European officials and global health specialists admitted that Bill Gates is running the global COVID response.


STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • September 14, 2022, Politico published a special report based on four dozen interviews with U.S. and European officials and global health specialists, who admit Bill Gates is running the global COVID response
  • Four health organizations — The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GAVI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the Wellcome Trust — rapidly took a lead on the global pandemic response, and while all four claim to be independent organizations, they’re all actually founded and/or funded by Gates
  • During the earliest days of the outbreak, the Gates Foundation, GAVI, CEPI and the Wellcome Trust began a coordinated effort to identify vaccine makers, fund tests, drug treatments and mRNA shots, and develop a global distribution plan in collaboration with the World Health Organization. In the end, they failed to meet their own goals on all fronts
  • Gates is unqualified to make health recommendations, and he’s never been elected to represent the public
  • Gates has used his wealth, influence and sheer shrewdness to get him into a position where he can dictate global health policy for his own financial benefit

The idea that Bill Gates exerts undue influence over global health has consistently been denied and dismissed as a loony conspiracy theory. But as with so many other things, this conspiracy theory is now turning out to be a conspiracy fact.

September 14, 2022, Politico published an extensive special report based on “four dozen interviews with U.S. and European officials and global health specialists,” headlined, “How Bill Gates and His Partners Took Over the Global COVID Response.”1

As noted by Igor Chudov on Substack,2 within hours the headline was edited to read: “How Four Private Groups Used Their Clout to Control the Global COVID Response — With Little Oversight,”3 as illustrated in Chudov’s screen captures below.

Curiously, five hours after that edit, Politico changed the headline back, so at the time of this writing, it reads:4 “How Bill Gates and Partners Used Their Clout to Control the Global Covid Response — With Little Oversight.” The only word now missing from the original headline is “his.” You can see how the headline shifted back and forth over the course of 15 hours on archive.today.5

Four Gates Organizations Monopolize the Global COVID Response

According to Politico,6 four health organizations — the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GAVI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the Wellcome Trust — rapidly took a lead on the global pandemic response, and while all four claim to be independent organizations, they’re all actually founded and/or funded by Gates.

“When Covid-19 struck, the governments of the world weren’t prepared,” Politico writes. “While the most powerful nations looked inward, four non-governmental global health organizations began making plans for a life-or-death struggle against a virus that would know no boundaries.

What followed was a steady, almost inexorable shift in power from the overwhelmed governments to a group of non-governmental organizations, according to a seven-month investigation by POLITICO journalists based in the U.S. and Europe and the German newspaper WELT.

Armed with expertise, bolstered by contacts at the highest levels of Western nations and empowered by well-grooved relationships with drug makers, the four organizations took on roles often played by governments — but without the accountability of governments.”

Six Takeaways From Politico’s Investigation

During the earliest days of the outbreak, while governments were still debating the seriousness of it, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GAVI, CEPI and the Wellcome Trust began a coordinated effort to identify vaccine makers, fund tests, drug treatments and mRNA shots, and develop a global distribution plan in collaboration with the World Health Organization. In a side bar, Politico highlights six key takeaways from their investigation:7

1 The four organizations have spent almost $10 billion on COVID since 2020 – the same amount as the leading U.S. agency tasked with fighting COVID abroad.

2 The organizations collectively gave $1.4 billion to the World Health Organization, where they helped create a critical initiative to distribute COVID-19 tools. That program failed to achieve its original benchmarks.

3 The organizations’ leaders had unprecedented access to the highest levels of governments, spending at least $8.3 million to lobby lawmakers and officials in the U.S. and Europe.

4 Officials from the U.S., EU and representatives from the WHO rotated through these four organizations as employees, helping them solidify their political and financial connections in Washington and Brussels.

5 The leaders of the four organizations pledged to bridge the equity gap. However, during the worst waves of the pandemic, low-income countries were left without life-saving vaccines.

6 Leaders of three of the four organizations maintained that lifting intellectual property protections was not needed to increase vaccine supplies – which activists believed would have helped save lives.”

Unqualified and Unelected

As detailed by Politico, through Gates’ lobbying and financial might, the international response to COVID rapidly shifted from individual governments to “a privately overseen global constituency of nongovernmental experts.”

“What makes Bill Gates qualified to be giving advice and advising the U.S. government on where they should be putting … tremendous resources?” ~ Kate Elder, senior policy adviser for the Doctors Without Borders’ Access Campaign

In the U.S., president Biden has earmarked $500 million to CEPI alone in his $5 billion COVID budget, which has yet to be approved by Congress. But, as noted by Kate Elder, a senior vaccines policy adviser for the Doctors Without Borders’ Access Campaign:8

“What makes Bill Gates qualified to be giving advice and advising the U.S. government on where they should be putting … tremendous resources?”

Lawrence Gostin, a Georgetown University professor who specializes in public-health law told Politico:

“I think we should be deeply concerned. Putting it in a very crass way, money buys influence. And this is the worst kind of influence. Not just because it’s money — although that’s important, because money shouldn’t dictate policy — but also, because it’s preferential access, behind closed doors.

[It’s] anti-democratic, because it’s extraordinarily non-transparent, and opaque [and] leaves behind ordinary people, communities and civil society.”

Gates ‘Owns’ the WHO

Many have pointed out that Gates, through his billions in donations to the WHO, has significant leverage over the WHO’s decisions. In September 2021, Astrid Stuckelberger, Ph.D., a WHO insider, blew the whistle on Gates, explaining how the WHO is, in fact, controlled by Gates, who in turn dictates policy for his own personal financial benefit.

Of the four organizations Politico focuses on, GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance, may be the most important. GAVI, founded by Gates, is headquartered in Switzerland. In 2009, GAVI was recognized as an international institution and granted total blanket immunity, including qualified diplomatic immunity, which is extremely odd considering the organization has no political power that would warrant diplomatic immunity.9

Odder still is that GAVI’s immunity clauses go beyond even that of diplomats. GAVI’s immunity covers all aspects of engagement, including criminal business dealings. Equally strange is the fact that they’re completely tax exempt.

GAVI can basically do whatever it wants without any repercussions. Police can’t even investigate or collect evidence from GAVI were they to be implicated in a criminal investigation. That’s how well-protected they are. And, according to Stuckelberger, GAVI is the entity that is really directing the WHO.

According to Stuckelberger, Gates did, in 2017, request to be put on the WHO’s executive board — like a member state — ostensibly because he gives them so much money. There’s no evidence that Gates was ever officially granted the status of a member state, but it appears he figured out an alternative power play.

Stuckelberger pointed out that Gates and the WHO entered into a three-way contract agreement with Swissmedic, the Food and Drug Administration of Switzerland, which is highly unusual. So, essentially, when Gates did not get voted in as a one-man nation state, he created three-party contracts with member states and the WHO, essentially placing him on par with the WHO!

One curiosity that supports the idea that Gates is either the real power behind the WHO, or has the same amount of power as the WHO, is the fact that Gates has repeatedly been the first to announce what the world needs to do to address the pandemic, and then the WHO would come out with an identical message that member states then had to follow.

But who the heck is Gates to direct global health and pandemic responses? He’s a nobody. He has no medical training. He’s completely unqualified to speak to any health issues whatsoever. He didn’t even graduate college. And he’s never been elected to represent the people in any capacity.

Basically, what we have here is one wealthy individual who figured out a way to unofficially monopolize the decision-making ability of a global health authority in order to enrich himself, which is beyond crazy.

The WHO Was Instrumental in Gates’ Rise to Power

Gates’ influence over the WHO is undoubtedly why the WHO allowed these four Gates-funded groups to direct the global response to COVID in the first place. As reported by Politico:10

“The WHO was crucial to the groups’ rise to power. All had longstanding ties to the global health body. The boards of both CEPI and Gavi have a specially designated WHO representative.

There is also a revolving door between employment in the groups and work for the WHO: Former WHO employees now work at the Gates Foundation and CEPI; some, such as Chris Wolff, the deputy director of country partnerships at the Gates Foundation, occupy important positions.

Much of the groups’ clout with the WHO stems simply from money. Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, the Gates Foundation, Gavi, and the Wellcome Trust have donated collectively more than $1.4 billion to the WHO — a significantly greater amount than most other official member states, including the United States and the European Commission, according to data provided by the WHO.”

It would be one thing if these organizations actually did an excellent job. But they didn’t. An independent review11 by Dalberg Global Development Advisors, a New York policy advisory firm, found the initiative created by Gates’ groups, the Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator (ACT-A), failed on all fronts.

Despite a $23 billion budget,12 ACT-A procured only 16% of its target number of tests for low-and middle-income countries, and of the 245 million treatments it was supposed to deliver to low- and middle-income countries, they only allocated 1.8 million. Similarly, of the 2 billion COVID shots that were supposed to be delivered by the end of 2021, only 319 million doses were delivered.

Of course, one could argue that failure to deliver fraudulent CPR tests and dangerous treatments and mRNA shots were a blessing in disguise. But the fact remains that these organizations are far from excellent and fail miserably in reaching many of their stated goals.

They overpromise and underdeliver. They’re willing to sacrifice lives to maintain control over moneymaking patents. And, while they’re more or less singlehandedly shaping the global response to pandemics, there’s no one to hold them to account for their performance.

What Politico Left Out

While Politico’s report is sweeping in breadth, it still failed to include a number of important puzzle pieces listed in Chudov’s Substack article. For example:13

  • SARS-CoV-2 appears to be an intentionally engineered bioweapon.
  • The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation helped organize Event 201, a tabletop pandemic preparedness exercise in October 2019 that prophetically predicted COVID-19 — and the need for a massive propaganda and censorship campaign to quash “conspiracies” about the virus.
  • Gates purchased 3.1 million shares of BioNTech in September 2019 for $55 million.1415 At the time, BioNTech was working on patient-specific immunotherapies for cancer and other chronic diseases. In mid-March 2020, BioNTech partnered with Pfizer to develop a COVID mRNA jab.16 By August 2021, Gates’ prescient investment was worth $1.7 billion.
  • The Gates Foundation financed EcoHealth Alliance,17 the organization suspected of having a hand in the development of SARS-CoV-2.
  • The Gates Foundation also financed the University of North Carolina (UNC) with at least 56 different grants, where Ralph Baric, Ph.D., conducted gain-of-function research linked to the development of SARS-CoV-2. Baric also worked with EcoHealth Alliance and the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).

As noted by Chudov in his closing remarks:18

“Nevertheless, the mere publication of this article has huge importance. The things that most of us know and talk about, are appearing in the so-called ‘mainstream press’ — after the damage was all done, of course.

The virus was released; millions died; over a billion young people were force-vaccinated under false pretenses. When it is too late to change anything, Politico is finally stating the obvious. Still, it is better than nothing.

Almost everything in the Politico article was known a year ago. Where was Politico then? Busy taking government COVID vaccine advertising money. The pandemic was a crime, not an accident.”

The Gates-Fauci Scheme to Vaccinate the World

Gates is far from the only nemesis in this orchestrated drama, however. Dr. Anthony Fauci is another key player. Ironically, Gates claims he’s “taken the brunt of COVID conspiracy abuse” because Europeans are not familiar with Fauci. He recently told Fortune magazine:19

“It was quite a phenomenon; here in the U.S., it focused on myself and Tony Fauci, and internationally it was more just me because they didn’t know who Tony was — he really missed out on that!”

But while Gates tries to pass it off people’s concerns about his undue influence over their health as a joke, there’s no shortage of evidence that he really is pulling strings he’s far from qualified to pull.

In “Bill Gates Lays Out Plan for Global Takeover,” I review Gates’ role in the WHO and the WHO’s plan to, ultimately, seize control over all health care decisions, worldwide. I’ve also reviewed how Gates and Fauci have collaborated, forming a formidable public-private partnership that wields incredible power over the American public.

As early as 2000, Fauci and Gates formed an agreement to control and expand the global vaccine enterprise, which in 2021 culminated in a plan to inject every man, woman and child on the planet with an experimental COVID shot. Gates and Fauci’s collaboration are detailed in Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s best-selling book, “The Real Anthony Fauci.” The video at the top of this article summarizes their joint scheme.

LGBTQI+ Has Added a New Letter – E for Eunuchs thumbnail

LGBTQI+ Has Added a New Letter – E for Eunuchs

By MercatorNet – Navigating Modern Complexities

The latest heavenly body in the constellation of gender-diverse identities.


The ever-expanding acronym LGBTQI+ has a new letter, E. That’s E for eunuch, the latest official gender identity. It comes stamped with the seal of approval of the world’s leading medical association for other-gendered folks.

For the first time the new edition of Standards of Care and Ethical Guidelines (SOC8) published by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) has included a chapter on care for eunuchs.

In a talk explaining this at a recent WPATH conference in Montreal, Dr Michael S. Irwig described eunuchs as “one of the most marginalized and stigmatized communities in any culture anywhere across the world”. His colleague, Dr Tom Johnson, estimated that there are 8,000 to 10,000 “self-identified voluntary eunuchs in North America today.” They claimed that there is a large online peer-support community for eunuchs which offers advice on chemical and surgical castration.

Together they recommended that doctors create a “welcoming environment” for men who have been castrated or who are thinking about it.

This is not the only startling news to emerge from WPATH, but it might be the most significant. (For news about 9-year-olds on puberty blockers, click here.) We are privileged to be present at the creation of an entirely new gender identity. It’s like watching the Mexican volcano Parícutin as it emerged from a cornfield overnight.

Here’s the gender identity playbook for official recognition. We’ve applied it to eunuchs, but it would work for any of the dozens of gender identities out there.

Dr Tom Johnson presenting a talk on eunuchs at the WPATH 27th Scientific Symposium on September 20

First, prove that eunuchs have always existed. The supporters of the new identity say that it has existed for thousands of years. Dr Johnson is deeply versed in the history of eunuchs.  It is the “the oldest recognized gender outside the binary,” he told the WPATH conference. Back in 2014 he even recommended that the Islamic State should create a cadre of castrated bureaucrats to ensure its survival in an article that he co-authored in The Washington Post.

It is an academic question as to which is more barbaric: to behead (murder) or to castrate (mutilate). But of the two choices, if Islamic State continues along its current path, it is likely to be remembered like the Vandals – that is, as murderous marauders who get a brief mention in high school history classes.

Second, prove that this is a really big deal. In the age of the internet, this is relatively easy. Although, as Dr Johnson was honest enough to admit in his talk at the Montreal conference, there are only a few thousand voluntary eunuchs in the US and Canada, the WPATH guidelines cites numbers which are much higher. There are 130,000 registered members of an on-line discussion forum; close to 220,000 posts; instructions on self-castration which have been read one million times; annual eunuch conferences since 2001 in Minneapolis. These figures are essentially irrelevant to the existence of eunuchs as a gender identity, but big numbers are always impressive.

Three, prove that eunuchs suffer from minority stress. The chapter in SOC8 describes eunuchs as a “distinct gender identity” which battles with stigma and negative stereotypes.

Fourth, prove that eunuchs need gender-affirming medical care “to gain comfort with their gendered self”. Hence, the expertise of transgender specialists is necessary to keep them from self-harm. “We recommend health care professionals consider medical intervention, surgical intervention, or both for eunuch individuals,” say the guidelines, “when there is a high risk that withholding treatment will cause individuals harm through self-surgery, surgery by unqualified practitioners, or unsupervised use of medications that affect hormones.”

Fifth, prove that doctors do not act unethically if they castrate their patients. The mere presence of a chapter on eunuchs in the WPATH standards is a giant step forward towards this goal. WPATH’s approval is important to give doctors at least a fig leaf of legal protection and to pave the way for insurance coverage for their patients. As Dr Johnson told the Montreal conference:

… having this in the SOC is so huge, because it’s now in the official guidelines. And a lot of doctors and surgeons, you know, they don’t want to be seen as, you know, being rogue, and doing things that are—may get them into trouble, or that they may get their licenses pulled on. So now that there’s a chapter in the SOC8 saying, here’s this population, here are the services that they’re looking for, this is an appropriate, you know, management— it helps alleviate some of their concerns, I think.

Sixth, prove that eunuchs are ordinary folks, just differently gendered. They could be your brother or cousin or workmate. But because eunuchs have historically been a stigmatised and marginalised group, they are invisible. According to Dr Johnson, they seem to be better educated than the rest of the population. About 30 percent of Americans over 25 have a bachelor’s degree, compared to 48 percent of eunuchs. And 3 percent have PhDs, compared to 8 percent of the eunuchs.

Seventh, prove that eunuchs are reasonably well understood by contemporary medicine. Dr Johnson says that there are three types of people who seek voluntary castration. Men with extreme gender dysphoria are described in the WPATH standards. Men with body integrity dysphoria are described in the International Classification of Diseases for Mortality and Morbidity Statistics, number 6C21. The third are fetishists, mostly religious – and they are not covered by SOC8.

The WPATH standards assume that voluntary eunuchs are always adults. But they hold out some hope that children and adolescents could someday be included if there were adequate data:

Like other gender diverse individuals, eunuch individuals may be aware of their identity in childhood or adolescence. Due to the lack of research into the treatment of children who may identify as eunuchs, we refrain from making specific suggestions.

The seven steps in the gender playbook can easily be applied to other gender-diverse people to help them to reach, as the WPATH guidelines state: “lasting personal comfort with their gendered selves with the aim of optimizing their overall physical health, psychological well-being, and self-fulfillment.”

Eventually chapters could be added on zoophiles (people who are attracted to animals) and paedophiles. These communities are even more marginalised and stigmatised than eunuchs. Of course, it may take time. The first version of the WPATH Standards of Care was published in 1979; eunuchs had to wait 43 years to be recognised. Zoophiles and paedophiles need to be patient. But their day will come. Just follow the playbook.

The On-Going Plot to Reduce Global Population thumbnail

The On-Going Plot to Reduce Global Population

By J.W. Bryan

According to Kelleigh Nelson’s News with Views article of March 22, 2022, “The Homicidal Killing Fields of America’s Medical System,” her extensive research  confirms that what we are currently experiencing has been in the planning stage for at least two decades.

Its purpose was to establish a crisis, through fear, by which the public mindset would accept the existence of a pandemic that would completely endanger our health globally, and provide the excuse for destroying all current law. However, there is much evidence that what was chosen (a virus – COVID-19) to initiate the outset of the “pandemic,” very possibly doesn’t even exist.

The reason I use the word, “possibly” is because I can’t positively confirm all existing intelligence.  However, the best I have found is contained in an article by Jon Rappoport, published in the Peoplesvoice.org, on January 29, 2021.

According to Rappoport, “There is no Covid pandemic.” He points out that the whole notion that Covid-19 is one health condition is a lie. COVID is not one thing.

He states that this the most difficult and yet the simplest point to accept and understand and that we shouldn’t reject the existence of the virus and then say, “So what is the cause of people dying?” His response to that is, there is no ONE CAUSE. There is no one illness. There is no “it.”

The article continues…Rappoport states that none of the “COVID deaths” in the entire world require the existence of a new virus. For instance, in Wuhan, where the whole business began, the first COVID cases of pneumonia occurred in a city whose air is heavily polluted. In China, every year, roughly 300,000 people die from pneumonia. That means millions of cases. None of these deaths need to be explained by invoking a new virus.

He continues, “Add to this the fact that the PCR test for the virus is irreparably flawed and useless.” (For a variety of reasons, I have explained in other articles.) The test spits out false positives like a fire hose. Thus, the high case numbers. The authorities have to go to such extremes to paint a picture of a spreading viral epidemic…in order to plant fear and thus compliance in the citizenry. However, there is no evidence that an actual germ is traveling around the world felling people. The ‘evidence’ is invented.

The” pandemic” is invented.

The fraud is promoted.

And, if you think there are other major reasons to explain “why all these people are dying,” keep in mind that “lung” conditions are an expanded category worldwide. For instance, there are about one billion cases of flu-like illnesses every year on planet earth. Repackaging/relabeling just a small percentage of those cases alone would account for all official COVID death numbers.

But we have known for some time that the “Agenda” for world government has been planning, for three or four decades, something comparable to what we are experiencing currently.  The so-called “pandemic,” which is fueled by something called COVID-19, very probably doesn’t exist except in propaganda and in the minds of the people.

According to Kelleigh Nelson’s News with Views article of February 8, 2020, “Mass Murder by a medical System that has Lost its Direction and Soul” she states that the AMA, CDC, FDA, NIH protocols for treatment of patients with COVID have saved no patients; they have purposely murdered hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, who could have been saved. She makes a point, “That the dissident doctors, scientists and healthcare workers know that there are repurposed drugs (inexpensive and available) that could have saved up to 86% of those who perished.”

Following is a list of comments relative to the above.

“People were dying, (yet) all my ideas were getting shouted down. My superiors were showing up (to my clinical meetings) and getting me to stand down, because I was entertaining the idea that we should do this, that and the other thing, and they didn’t want anything to be done.” – Dr. Pierre Kory

“This is a war on cheap repurposed drugs.” – Dr. Paul Marik before testifying on NH bill that would make ivermectin available OTC in NH.

“I never thought I’d see the day where doctors are censored, and patients are kept from care.” – Dr. Peter McCullough.

As we have observed, practically all hospitals are in lockstep with everything that is being carried out by the forces behind this so-called pandemic. We know this is true because of the evidence given by dissident doctors, scientists, healthcare workers and parents or families of patients who failed to survive their hospital stay. The hospital protocols were used to further their goal of diminishing the global population.

Also, the hospitals are given monetary incentives by the government to label all illnesses as Covid. This, of course, results in the enhancement of the number of C-19 cases reported daily across the country and figures into the national mind set of the acceptance of existence of a “pandemic.”

Additionally, the hospitals are given bonuses for deaths from “COVID” or listed as COVID, but nothing for those who survive. So, we can imagine what the incentive leads to, hundreds of thousands of dollars.

A Case in Point

This brings me to an ordeal experienced by Beth, my wife’s niece, whose son Jonathon, was in a hospital with “COVID.” She kept a daily journal of her son’s progress, which to all appearances, even though he was on an ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) Machine, was daily improving.  He was able to participate in physical therapy and occupational therapy.  She had videos confirming this.

All this transpired over a period of about three months.  Toward the end, she was told that they might have to remove the ECMO machine to be used with patients who had been vaccinated, which her son had not. Later, when this came about, it resulted in him having trouble breathing, in fact, he was gasping for breath. For this they began giving him shots to stop the gasping.

She was informed by the staff that this was why the shots were being administered, to which she replied that “she didn’t want him to be gasping for breath,” because she wanted him to at least have the opportunity to try to live. In the response, the doctor said, “If he gets this miracle, it doesn’t matter what I do.” But when the gasping stopped – after the 4th injection he was dead.

So, now comes the aftermath.

Beth is tough, both mentally and emotionally. But she’s been through a lot recently. She lost both parents in a short period of time, then came the loss of her son. It’s been a lot of heartbreak and stress. At the very outset, upon arriving at the hospital she requested that he be given ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), or other repurposed drugs, but of course, that didn’t happen. Since the repurposed drugs were denied, what do you think he was given instead? It very well could have been Paxlovid which is worthless, or Remdesivir, which, according to reports, is very expensive as well as deadly.

I’ve talked with her three times to prepare to give an account of all this in order to present to others. She is convinced that her son was murdered, even though the hospital staff was only obeying the protocols handed down by the insiders at the top, you know who they are…the AMA, CDC, NIH, FDA etc.

We could say that the hospital staff only takes on the alter ego of the hospital, which also takes on the alter ego of all the powers at the top. They follow what they’re told to do in order to keep their jobs, even if they know what they’re doing is not normal or right.  Never mind the fact that the ECMO machine was taken from her son and given to a vaxed patient and would not help the vaxxed patient to survive. It is probable that the reason the other patient was in the hospital was due to the COVID injections. In this case, as in others, the hospital wouldn’t help them survive, even if it was possible, as they receive no monetary benefits for those who survive.

The amount of evidence is endless that the vaccine was designed purposely to either kill or seriously injure. The obvious outcome is the depopulation of America and the entire world.

All this plays into the agenda of the great reset by the invisible government which is the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).  All the components of it, the United Nations, the Democratic Party, The World Economic Forum (WEF), and the socialist sleepers who have infiltrated the Republican Party, and many others are having their day, but it will be short lived. Just when they believe they have everything under complete control and everything nailed down so that nothing can stop them, something is going to play into the Lord’s time-table which will result in their total destruction.

A few years prior to that something will have played into His plans that brought about that blessed day when the Lord himself, will have descended from heaven and with a shout, “With the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first.”

“Then, we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

And this is the day that Beth will be looking forward to with total assurance that a joyful occasion will transpire when she is reunited with her son, Jonathon.

Conclusion

Beth isn’t the only one who is experiencing this; we know that there are many thousands, maybe even millions, who are going through much heartbreak as a result of the protocols being ordered by the medical authorities and the federal government to continue this façade of a pandemic using fear to control the masses.

And it will get worse. So, we need to prepare for whatever comes, and the only way I know that we can do it is to grow stronger in our faith and dependance upon God to see us through all the travails that are forthcoming.

Please, share this article with as many as possible.  The time is close at hand.

TAKE ACTION: Tell CDC to Stop Promoting Occult Resources to Youth! thumbnail

TAKE ACTION: Tell CDC to Stop Promoting Occult Resources to Youth!

By The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property

TAKE ACTION: SIGN OUR PETITION TO STOP THE CDC FROM PROMOTING THE OCCULT


The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is directing youth to online discussions on sexual behavior and “transgender” resources. One discussion instructs children on occult practices and astrology. Worst of all, the resources give minors the ability to hide the resources from parents. According to reports:

“The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is promoting to youth an online chat space that discusses sex, polyamorous relationships, the occult, sex change operations, and activism, and is specifically designed to be quickly hidden while being used. It also mixes LGBT adults and children and is run in part by Planned Parenthood [sic].

“Called Q Chat Space, the platform is advertised on the CDC’s LGBT Health Youth Resources page… The chat service, which describes itself as ‘a community for LGBTQ+ teens,’ is available for those ages 13-19, can be hidden from parents, and focuses on a number of mature themes.”

Read more.

(Source: Breitbart.com)

Some of the topics for discussion are:

  • “Drag Culture 101,”
  • “Sex and Relationships”
  • “Having Multiple Genders”
  • “Queer Youth Activism”
  • “Gender Affirmation Surgeries”
  • “Queering Tarot”

Everywhere on the Q Chat site, there is a large, green “quick escape” button, so users can immediately leave the site and appear to be looking at something else. Q Chat also gives the option to have “discreet” text reminders. This allows youth to receive automatic updates about upcoming discussions. But, the message hides the discussion topic and hides the name of the name of the source (i.e., Q Chat). In other words,

CDC is sidelining parents from what their children are learning.

Promoting sexual and occult practices will bring irreparable moral damage to the youth. And encouraging distrust in parents is a grave blow to the bond children should have with their family. Please sign our petition to the CDC, demanding that it remove sexual and occult practices from its resources.


TAKE ACTION: SIGN OUR PETITION TO STOP THE CDC FROM PROMOTING THE OCCULT


PETITION TEXT

To: The Center of Disease Control,

I am appalled at the resources you are offering to youth and minors, as Q Chat. Among the topics included are deviant sexual practices, “transgenderism” and sex-transition surgery, and even occult practices like astrology.

This site also promotes distrust of parents. It provides means to keep the topics from being seen with a “quick escape” button, and deliberately hides topics of discussion with a “discreet” option for automatic reminders.

This will cause serious moral damage to youth. It will open them to immoral practices, and encourage distrust within families. Above all, it is a serious offense to God.

I urge you to remove these resources at once. Stop targeting our youth.

Sincerely and urgently,

Ohio school district promotes NEA ‘LGBTQ+ resource guide’ with instructions on prostitution, abortion thumbnail

Ohio school district promotes NEA ‘LGBTQ+ resource guide’ with instructions on prostitution, abortion

By Jihad Watch

The idea here seems to be to create an unbridgeable rift between parents and children and render the children weak, pleasure-obsessed, emotionally stunted individuals who are totally dependent upon the state and ripe for conquest.

This Ohio School District Is Promoting an ‘LGBTQ+ Resource Guide’ With Instructions on Sex Work, Abortions

by Elizabeth Troutman, Washington Free Beacon, September 23, 2022:

Teachers in an Ohio school district are wearing name badges that students can scan with their phones to access an “LGBTQ+ resource guide,” which includes instructions on how to get abortions and “organize like a sex worker.”

Hilliard City School District participates in the National Education Association’s “I’m Here” program, which encourages teachers to wear the badge. The group says the program is supposed to educate teachers on how to respond to LGBT students. But a Washington Free Beacon review found that the QR code takes students to resources that describe abortion as the removal of “pregnancy tissue,” encourage gender transitioning without parental consent, and promote sex work….

“The badge has a QR code that once scanned takes you to a website that has extremely inappropriate information, and as a parent that crosses the line,” Hilliard City parent Lisa Chaffee said.

Hilliard City superintendent Dave Stewart said the badges only concern “adult learning,” though the website from the QR code provides resources aimed at K-12 students. After backlash from parents, the district advised teachers to cover the QR code on the back of the badge, according to a statement from Stewart….

“LGBTQIA+ students should be respected, affirmed, and protected in Texas schools, even if they do not have the full support of their parents or guardians,” says “Free to Be Me: A Toolkit to Protect LGBTQIA+ Students’ Rights.”

Another link in the guide takes students to a post called “Organize Like a Sex Worker: Learning from Worker and Organizer Kate Adamo.” The post says recognizing that “sex work is work” is “critical to ensuring the reproductive and sexual liberation of everyone.” Kate Adamo, the “sex worker” interviewed in the post, compared “transphobia or homophobia, being anti-abortion, or anti-sex work” to eugenics.

Sex workers “face stigma, judgment, and pushback from both the Christian right, and sex work exclusionary feminists (SWERFs) on the left,” Adamo said.

Another link promotes a project from Planned Parenthood Toronto with videos like “Are you queer enough to be here? Spoiler Alert: YES!” and “Sex acts that don’t get enough play.”…

The resource guide also provides a handbook to help minors understand their gender identities, which says “sex assignment does not take into account one’s true gender identity.”

“Your true gender may be different than the gender that a doctor assigned you, which is perfectly normal, valid, and wonderful,” the handbook reads.

The Hilliard City School District did not respond to a request for comment.

New Bloodbath Ahead, COVID Shots Were Just the Beginning—Biden EO Advances Biotech-Transhumanist Agenda thumbnail

New Bloodbath Ahead, COVID Shots Were Just the Beginning—Biden EO Advances Biotech-Transhumanist Agenda

By MERCOLA Take Control of Your Health

“I predicted this ‘no testing required’ formula would spread beyond COVID shots, and according to the executive order Biden just signed, that’s exactly what’s about to happen.” — Dr. Joseph Mercola


STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • September 12, 2022, President Biden signed the “Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy”
  • Specified in that order is the development of genetic engineering technologies and techniques “to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers,” as well as genetic technologies to “unlock the power of biological data” using “computing tools and artificial intelligence”
  • This executive order establishes a fast-tracked pipeline of mRNA shots and other gene therapies that will further the transhumanist agenda to create augmented humans and bring us into a post-human world
  • Drug makers have clearly expected this free-for-all as they have loads of mRNA candidates in their pipelines. September 14, 2022, Pfizer initiated a Phase 3 study that will test a quadrivalent mRNA-based flu shot on 25,000 American adults
  • Moderna began its Phase 3 mRNA flu jab trial in early June 2022. Ultimately, Moderna wants to create an annual mRNA shot that covers all of the top 10 viruses that result in hospitalizations each year

September 12, 2022, President Biden signed the “Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy.”1

Specified in that order is the development of genetic engineering technologies and techniques “to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers,” as well as genetic technologies to “unlock the power of biological data” using “computing tools and artificial intelligence.”

Additionally, “obstacles for commercialization” will be reduced “so that innovative technologies and products can reach markets faster.” What we have here is, in a nutshell, the creation of a fast-tracked mRNA pipeline.

When, in June 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration quietly implemented a Future Framework” scheme2 to deliver reformulated COVID boosters without additional testing, I predicted that this “no testing required” formula would spread beyond COVID shots. And, according to this executive order, that’s exactly what’s about to happen.

In early September 2022, the FDA also put out medically false and misleading COVID booster campaign messages that prove we’ve officially entered the era of transhumanism:

“It’s time to install that update! #UpdateYourAntibodies with a new #COVID19 booster.”3 “Don’t be shocked! You can now #RechargeYourImmunity with an updated #COVID19 booster.”4

Is This the Death Knell to Allopathic Medicine?

Historically, gene therapies have had to jump through extra hoops, which is why so few exist on the market. As of 2021, there were 20 gene therapies commercially available.5 The world’s first gene therapy trial didn’t begin until 1990, so this is still a very new field.

The entire gene therapy field actually collapsed overnight in 1999, when a teenage trial participant died from side effects. An FDA investigation concluded research had moved too fast and that safety “had not been put first.”6 Progress, thanks to increased caution, slowed from there on.

Such caution is now being thrown to the wind, and it’s not difficult to predict there will be disastrous ramifications. Millions will die from poorly tested gene therapies and, eventually, medical research and allopathic medicine will both cease to exist, as survivors vow to have nothing to do with that murderous cabal ever again.

The only way they might be able to keep going is if they are in control of people’s brain function and/or able to force drugs under threat of death, or worse — neither of which is impossible at this point, shockingly enough. In the meantime, we’re looking at a cornucopia of mRNA shots coming our way.

mRNA Flu Shots Are in the Works

Not surprisingly, mRNA flu shots are in the works.7 While we probably won’t see mRNA flu shots during the 2022/2023 winter season, there’s every reason to expect they’ll be rolled out next year.

September 14, 2022, Pfizer initiated a Phase 3 study, which will test a quadrivalent mRNA-based flu shot on 25,000 American adults.8 Pfizer is also exploring mRNA technology that uses self-amplifying RNA (saRNA), for potential use in the future.9

Moderna began its Phase 3 mRNA flu jab trial in early June 2022.10 It’s also working on mRNA shots for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV), which is in the herpes family, as well as a SARS-CoV-2-influenza combination shot. Ultimately, Moderna wants to create an annual mRNA shot that covers all of the top 10 viruses that result in hospitalizations each year.11

Its current flu jab candidate, mRNA-1010, encodes for the hemagglutinin (HA) glycoproteins of four different influenza strains, including influenza A/H1N1, A/H3N2, influenza B/Yamagata and B/Victoria. According to Moderna:12

“HA is a major influenza surface glycoprotein that is considered an important target to generate broad protection against influenza and is the primary target of currently available influenza vaccines.”

The Transhumanist Agenda

transhumanism human 2.0

Over the past three years, I’ve written several articles exploring the transhumanist agenda, which all these mRNA shots and genetic technologies are part and parcel of. Basically, the goal of the transhumanist movement is to transcend biology through technology, and to meld human biology with technology and artificial intelligence.

In September 2020, I posted a video with Dr. Carrie Madej (above), in which she suggested we were standing at the crossroads of transhumanism, thanks to the fast approaching release of mRNA COVID-19 shots.

“One reason why it’s important to know whether synthetic RNA creates permanent changes in the genome is because synthetic genes are patented. If they cause permanent changes, humans will contain patented genes, and that brings up very serious questions, seeing how patents have owners, and owners have patent rights.”

Since these shots are designed to manipulate your biology, they have the potential to also alter the biology of the entire human race. Nearly two years later, we still don’t know the extent to which they might be doing that, yet more fast-tracked and untested gene therapies are on the way.

One reason why it’s important to know for certain whether synthetic RNA ends up creating permanent changes in the genome is because synthetic genes are patented. If they cause permanent changes, humans will contain patented genes, and that brings up very serious questions, seeing how patents have owners, and owners have patent rights.

US Defense Department Aims to Create Human Cyborgs

The hydrogel used to preserve the mRNA can also contain nanobots to create a bioelectric interface capable of connecting to a smartphone or other interface. Novel technologies that measure biological data, such as blood sugar, are based on this. Such technologies will, of course, have immediate ramifications for our privacy.

Who will collect and have access to all this data? Who will be responsible for protecting it? How will it be used? Also, if your cellphone can receive information from your body, what information can your body receive from it, or other sources? Could transmissions affect your mood? Your behavior? Your physical function? Your thoughts or memories?

So far, it doesn’t appear as though the COVID shots have these kinds of capabilities built in, but we do know for a fact that militaries around the world are exploring and working toward such capabilities. In fact, it’s an arms race in its own right.

In his September 14, 2022, Substack article,13 “Human Cyborgs Are Just the Beginning,” Dr. Robert Malone reviewed several of those plans. Certain report titles alone tell the story, such as the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Biotechnologies for Health and Human Performance Council’s report,14 “Cyborg Soldier 2050: Human/Machine Fusion and the Implications for the Future of the DOD.” It doesn’t leave a whole lot to the imagination, does it? According to the assessment abstract:

“The primary objective of this effort was to forecast and evaluate the military implications of machines that are physically integrated with the human body to augment and enhance human performance over the next 30 years.

This report summarizes this assessment and findings; identifies four potential military-use cases for new technologies in this area; and assesses their impact upon the DOD organizational structure, warfighter doctrine and tactics, and interoperability with U.S. allies and civil society.”

Human augmentation technologies deemed technically feasible by 2050 at the latest include ocular enhancements to improve sight and situational awareness, optogenetic bodysuit to restore or improve muscular strength and control, auditory enhancements, and neural enhancement of the brain for two-way data transfers and brain-to-brain communication.

Changing What It Means To Be Human

In “The Plan to Turn You Into a Genetically Edited Cyborg,” I covered another shockingly dystopian report by the U.K. Ministry of Defense and the German Bundeswehr Office for Defense Planning, published in May 2021.

That report, “Human Augmentation — The Dawn of a New Paradigm, a Strategic Implications Project,”15 reviews the scientific goals of the U.K. and German defense ministries, and they basically mirror that of the U.S. DOD. On page 12 of the report, the concept of the human body as a platform is described, and how various parts of the human platform can be augmented. For example:

  • Physical performance such as strength, dexterity, speed and endurance can be enhanced, as well as physical senses. One example given is gene editing for enhanced sight
  • Psychological performance such as cognition, emotion and motivation can be influenced to activate and direct desired behavior. Examples of cognitive augmentation include improving memory, attention, alertness, creativity, understanding, decision-making, intelligence and vigilance
  • Social performance — “The ability to perceive oneself as part of a group and the readiness to act as part of the team” — can be influenced. Communication skills, collaboration and trust are also included here

They list several different ways to influence the physical, psychological and social performance of the “human platform,” including genetics (germ line and somatic modification), synthetic biology, invasive (internal) and noninvasive (external) brain interfaces, passive and powered exoskeletons, drugs and nano technology, neurostimulation, augmented reality technologies such as external holograms or glasses with built-in artificial intelligence, and sensory augmentation technologies such as external sensors or implants.

As noted in this report, “Human augmentation has the potential to … change the meaning of what it means to be a human.” This is precisely what Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), has stated is the goal of The Fourth Industrial Revolution.16

WEF has been at the center of global affairs for more than 40 years, and if you take the time to dive into WEF’s Fourth Industrial Revolution material, you realize that it’s all about transhumanism. It’s about the merger of man and machine.

This is a dystopian future that WEF and its global allies are actively trying to implement, whether humanity at large agrees with it or not. Importantly, the “Human Augmentation” report readily admits that human augmentation can “directly enhance behavior.”

And, if you think these reports are just brain fodder for geeks in uniforms, think again. The U.K. Defense and Security Accelerator (DASA) is currently, right now, accepting proposals for human augmentation technologies such as those listed above.17 Grants of 70,000 euros ($74,000), will be given to proposals that can provide proof of concept.

We’re Already Being Programmed to Accept Transhumanism

Both the DOD’s “Cyborg Soldier” report and the British/German “Human Augmentation” reports discuss the fact that human augmentation will inevitably widen already existing disparities, inequalities and inequities, and therefore, “efforts should be undertaken to reverse negative cultural narratives of enhancement technologies.”18

In other words, don’t let people come to the conclusion that human cyborgs are a bad idea, because at worst that might prevent their development, and at best, it’ll pitch regular people against the augmented elite, making their efforts to rule the plebs more difficult.

As noted by Malone, “Once again, we are being played before we even know what the playing field looks like.”19

Disturbingly, considering how nontransparent governments have been so far, it’s not inconceivable that technologies capable of influencing thoughts and behaviors would be used on populations without informing anyone, which makes the list of potential risks one takes with each new mRNA injection even longer than it already is.

But we don’t need to be genetically reengineered or have nanobots introduced into our brains to be at risk of outside manipulation. That’s already happening through noninvasive means.

Control Capabilities Go Far Beyond Orwell’s ‘1984’ Vision

In a November 2019 interview with CNN,20 history professor Yuval Noah Harari, a Klaus Schwab disciple, stated that humans are already “hackable,” meaning the technology exists by which a company or government can know you better than you know yourself, and this knowledge can be used for both good and ill.

According to Harari, the available capabilities already go far beyond Orwell’s “1984” authoritarian vision, and it’s only going to become more powerful from here.

He predicted that algorithms will increasingly be used to make decisions that historically have been made by humans, either yourself or someone else, including whether or not you’ll be hired for a particular job, whether you’ll be granted a loan, what scholastic curriculum you will follow and even whom you will marry.

For example, there are even ongoing attempts to upload the human mind into the cloud, ultimately creating a form of “digital hive mind” where everyone communicates via “Wi-Fi telepathy.” This, despite the fact we still do not fully understand what “the mind” actually is, or where it’s located.

Final Thoughts

I don’t know what it will take to prevent the dystopian post-human world envisioned by Schwab and his technocratic minions, but I suspect education would be a cornerstone of such an endeavor. In order for there to be a resistance, enough people need to be aware of what the plan is, and where we’re actually being led with all these novel therapies and inventions.

In the shorter term, it’s crucial to realize that the fast-tracking of “genetic engineering technologies and techniques to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers” means they’re going to cut corners. Loads of them.

Testing is basically going to be done on the population at large, just as they’ve done with the COVID jabs. The results of such experimentation are relatively predictable. People will be seriously injured and many will die. So, think long and hard before you agree to take any of these forthcoming gene therapies.

The Connection Between Xanax and Cancer thumbnail

The Connection Between Xanax and Cancer

By Kevin Morris Delphi Behavioral Health Group

For people taking Xanax to treat their anxiety, it could be potentially concerning to hear about the possible link between Xanax and cancer. But is this actually true? If so, such a serious issue of using Xanax and other related benzodiazepines should cause people great pause before taking this medication. If not, where did this rumor come from? Here’s what you need to know about the connection between Xanax and cancer.

When the Warnings Started

Xanax comes from the polarizing class of drugs known as benzodiazepines. These drugs were initially marketed as safer alternatives to barbiturate drugs. At one time, they were the most widely used prescription drug. Xanax is certainly the most popular of the various benzodiazepines, and it’s generally prescribed to treat anxiety and panic disorders. It is also used as a sedative. Beyond personal use via prescription, Xanax and other benzodiazepines treat people undergoing alcohol detox and even opioid recovery programs, too. However, these drugs are also notorious for their highly abusive and addictive potential.

So what makes Xanax, in particular, a culprit in developing cancer? Unfortunately, there are conflicting studies related to this. Some studies assert that Xanax does not have a direct link to causing cancer whatsoever, while others argue that it can only be linked to certain types of cancer. For example, The Guardian reported in recent years that there is a link between Xanax and the development of lung cancer. Still, other studies conclude that only certain benzodiazepines, not including Xanax, have a link to cancer. The medical research verdict at this point is “unclear,” which unfortunately means we just don’t know yet.

Is Cancer a Necessary Side Effect?

What we do know might make a big difference, though. Xanax comes from a long history of drugs initially marketed as safe. At first, barbiturates were thought to be safe drugs to treat many of the same symptoms that benzodiazepines do. Over time, however, barbiturates were understood to cause severe dependence and abuse. Then came benzodiazepines, a drug thought to solve some of the dependence problems that came with the territory of barbiturate use. Just consider the way the drug was originally advertised as a personal savior during the 1970s. However, it didn’t take long for benzo users to show the same patterns of abuse and dependence as those who used barbiturates.

Not only do we not see the kind of magazine advertisements for Xanax that you could find decades ago, we now see more explicit warnings about the drug coming from updated drug labeling by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). An official statement from the FDA in September 2020 announced that the drug labeling would be updated with its strongest warning to signal “potential abuse, misuse, addiction, physical dependence, and withdrawal reactions.” This warning is known as the FDA’s black box warning, its strongest warning. This is important because Xanax and other benzos have not changed chemically from their early days. What has changed is how much we know about these drugs today after decades of statistical use.

The same pattern of research regarding Xanax and other drugs tends to follow a similar path; the more we learn about drugs already approved for widespread use, the more we learn of their previously unknown dangers, not their harmless nature. Drugs tend to be deemed more dangerous over time because we can learn more about them over time, and Xanax is no exception to this.

We know much more about Xanax’s addictive potential than when the drug first hit the markets, including the Xanax withdrawal symptoms, which range from restlessness to life-threatening delirium tremens (DTs). We know that people experiencing Xanax withdrawal are the most vulnerable during the first two weeks of detox. We also know those who take blood pressure or heart medications should avoid taking Xanax in most cases because of the risk of adverse drug interactions.

Taking the Gamble of the Unknown

Whether Xanax is the culprit or a contributing factor to cancer is still unclear. We do know that mixing Xanax with other substances increases the risk of organ damage, chronic illnesses, and, yes, even cancer. Since Xanax is already part of the equation in those cases, it seems best to treat long-term use of the drug as a dangerous option.

While Xanax has a legitimate use in medical treatment, we can’t afford to downplay its high abuse potential or the ongoing research that adds to the list of dangers.

Pro-Abortion Case Just Got Weaker thumbnail

Pro-Abortion Case Just Got Weaker

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

The case for abortion just got weaker.  How do I know?  Because leading abortion advocates are out there saying the most ridiculous things.  Take Stacey Abrams, for example, the woman who thinks she’s Governor of Georgia.  She claimed in a video that surfaced last week that, “There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks.”  She went on to say what sounds like a heartbeat is just a “manufactured sound” invented by the patriarchy to control women’s bodies.  In this latter claim, she is echoing other abortion advocates who have claimed ultrasound machines produce the sound on their own, generated from what is just ‘electrical activity’, not a functional heartbeat.

Experts beg to differ.  The Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, and the authoritative Merck medical manual have all stated there is a heartbeat by six weeks.  “The heart begins to pump fluid through blood vessels by day 20,” the Merck Manual states.  That’s the definition of a heartbeat – “cardiac tissue contracting to pump blood through the circulatory system.”   The Mayo Clinic and Planned Parenthood recently scrubbed their websites to remove any reference to a heartbeat, with Planned Parenthood now claiming ultrasound machines produce the sound on their own.  Sure, and I’m the tooth fairy.  Not a good look, changing your story like that.

Stacey Abrams joins other abortion advocates who have said the most preposterous things about killing babies in the womb.  A feminist said last year abortion is an “act of love” when it allows a mother to take better care of her other children.  And when the going gets tough in the future, will it be OK to kill those children, too?  Why not?  How’s it any different?

We also know the case for abortion is getting weaker because advocates are censoring contrary information they don’t want you to hear.  YouTube has started censoring videos containing truthful information about the links between abortion and breast cancer, as well as abortion and infertility.

We also know the case for abortion is getting weaker because, after having lost in the court of public opinion and in the Supreme Court, abortion advocates are using their temporary control of the federal government to push abortion every way they can.  Joe Biden signed an executive order to that effect in July.   Among other federal acts, VA hospitals are now performing abortions in states where it is outlawed.  The White House would not rule out building abortion clinics on federal land, if that’s what it takes to provide abortions in every state.  Biden’s immigration authorities are steering illegal aliens to states where abortion is legal, violating a federal law which prohibits the use of taxpayer money to facilitate the procedure.

We also know the case for abortion is weak because apostates continue to leave the abortion industry to tell the truth about what really goes on there.  A former Planned Parenthood clinic director facilitated 22,000 abortions during her time there, but left to become an anti-abortion activist.  She now regrets telling expectant mothers their babies would not feel pain while being torn apart, and otherwise duping women into abortions they didn’t really want.  But when’s the last time you ever heard of someone leaving the pro-life movement to become an abortion activist?  It doesn’t seem to happen.

It’s been my experience in life that people who make the most hysterical arguments are often rationalizing their desire to do something they know deep down is wrong.  So when Stacey Abrams says there is no fetal heartbeat – the machines are making the sounds – you gotta wonder, what does she really believe deep down inside?

Why did the Community Foundation of Sarasota County fund ‘QUEERCON’ at the School of Arts and Sciences public school? thumbnail

Why did the Community Foundation of Sarasota County fund ‘QUEERCON’ at the School of Arts and Sciences public school?

By Dr. Rich Swier

We recently had a number of concerns from our readers, including links, to troubling information about how public schools are grooming children to have sex with perverts, pederasts and pedophiles.

These concerns bring up the hot-button topic of public schools “socially engineering’ pupils to be something that is scientifically impossible—becoming non-binary.

This issue has led to a national movement to give parents control of what topics their children are taught in public schools. It has also led to legislation, in states like Florida, that makes it illegal to discuss sex or teach about sex in elementary schools. It has lead to the review of materials in public school media centers that are pornographic or depict sexual acts like sodomy.

Here are some examples of what we have received from concerned parents, community leaders and even Judicial watch.

First, here’s an email we received from a community leader that was sent to his wife,

Hi Joni,

Hey, I don’t know if you’re aware of this event [‘QUEERCON’ hosted by ALSOYouth the Community Foundation of Sarasota CountyGulf Coast Community Foundation and Manatee Community Foundation] that’s going to be held at one of our public charter schools this weekend [Saturday, September 17th, 2022], but it would be great if you guys could pray over this and we could get it to be stopped or just pray for protection over our children.

My husband is going to be there holding a sign that says ‘Jesus saves’ and passing out gospel tracts. If anyone wants to join him just give him a call at •••-•••-••••.  He wrote the principal and she wrote back unapologetic about the event and claimed that it was something that would actually help prevent the higher rate of suicide in the LGBTQ community.

Anyway, I also wrote a few other faith leaders and would love to see if we can stop this event or at least present the truth to these kids.

Thanks,

Melissa

Second, we were sent this tweet from Judicial Watch.

What are these men doing? https://t.co/ntSjP7NV2s

— Tom Fitton (@TomFitton) September 25, 2022

Then we we received a link to an article titled Chris Rufo lays out how teachers’ unions plan to ‘queer up’ sex education in schools that included this video.

Who’s Funding These Queer Up Sex Education Events?

Using the QUEERCON event which was held at the School of Arts and Sciences a charter school in Sarasota County, we looked at the Queer Up Sex Education event’s sponsors. RE: The Community Foundation of Sarasota CountyGulf Coast Community Foundation and the Manatee Community Foundation.

We decided to focus specifically on the School Board of Sarasota County, the Sarasota based organization ALSOYouth and the Community Foundation of Sarasota County to understand who’s funding Queer Up Sex Education events and for how long.

What we learned was shocking.

After calling the Community Foundation of Sarasota County we learned that they have sponsored ALSOYouth and other LGBTQ organizations. In the case of ALSOYouth they have been sponsoring similar events since 1998.

As we began writing this column we were notified that Ranata Reeder, Vice President for Community Impact, that sponsored QUEERCON had resigned her position and will be replaced by Kirsten Russell. In an email the President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, Roxie Jerde, wrote,

I regret to inform you that Ranata Reeder is no longer with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. We are committed to the Knowledge & Equity department and will be evaluating the job profile in the coming weeks to refill the leadership role of this team. In the interim, Kirsten Russell will oversee the Knowledge & Equity team members. We informed our staff verbally of this change Monday morning, September 19 and have a goal of posting the position by the start of October.

The ALSOYouth homepage banner states, “Empowering LGBTQ+ Youth & Their Allies & Creating Inclusive Communities. Sarasota & Manatee.

Notice how Roxie Jerde has said that Kirsten will oversee the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s Knowledge & Equity team! Remember that the Democrat Party is committed to three social principles: diversity, equity and inclusion.

Note that the ALSOYouth homepage banner uses the words “empowering” and “inclusion”.

It appears that the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, ALSOYouth, and groups like Embracing Our Differences are like minded. For example Community Foundation of Sarasota County since 2004 has funded Embracing Our Differences courses for  grades 6-8 public school students like “Diversity Redesigned” created by Brittany Braniger. The Embracing Our Differences website states,

Since 2004, more than 529,000 students have participated including 52,274 students during the 2021-2022 school year alone.

In addition to free field trips, Embracing Our Differences initiatives include workshops by nationally recognized educators and lesson plans connected to art appreciation, character building and Social Emotional Learning. All lesson plans are created under the supervision of Sarasota County School District’s curriculum team and fully incorporate Florida State Standards.

Follow The Money

During our research on how Queer Up Sex Education and events like QUEERCON are happening we learned, sadly, that it’s all about the money.

It appears some public schools are more than willing to take money to promote a diversity, equity and inclusion agenda funded by non-profits.

Interviews with some key local community leaders indicated that:

  1. It isn’t the Sarasota County Teachers Union, pushing or wanting Queer Up Sex Education, as they are an independent union and focused solely on defending their members.
  2. It isn’t the teachers, with some notable exceptions, teaching Queer Up Sex Education classes or wanting them in their classrooms.
  3. It wasn’t, necessarily, even the school board pushing these Queer Up Sex Education classes and events.

It was the Sarasota non-profits who are funding and promoting Queer Up Sex Education classes and events.

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County gives out millions in grants yearly to promote a diversity, equity, inclusion and Queer Up Sex Education type lesson plans to the School Board.

Over the last two years, a number of school board meetings in Sarasota County have become heated over hot-button issues relating to parental rights, transparency and what is being taught in Sarasota County’s public schools. This lead to a major flipping to a pro-parent, pro-education, pro-learning new school board.

Currently the Sarasota County School Board is controlled by Jane Goodwin, Tom Edwards, and Shirley Brown three very liberally minded individuals. The only pro-parent members are Bridget Ziegler and Karen Rose. However, that will change on November 8th, 2022 when incumbents Bridget Ziegler and Karen Rose are re-sworn in along with two new school board members Tim Enos, the former Sarasota Schools police chief and longtime educator Robyn Marinelli.

The Sarasota County School Board, which was 3-2 leaning left, becomes a school board that will now be 4-1 leaning right thanks in part to the endorsement of these two incumbents and the two new members by Governor Ron DeSantis.

We will be looking for the new school board members to divest themselves of funding from non-profit organizations that promote Queer Up Sex Education. It is time for our public schools to boycott, divest and sanction those organizations who’s seeming intent and focus is on grooming our children for sex with perverts in the name of diversity, inclusion and equity (DIE).

The Bottom Line

Parents, grandparents and concerned citizens who turned out during the primary election and voted in this new school board have high expectations.

The tide is shifting toward empowering parents and and teaching students how to learn, not what to learn, i.e. indoctrinating them.

This will begin the fight at least in Sarasota County public schools of focusing on age appropriate materials in the classroom and school media centers.

This years school board election results sent a very clear message, enough is enough.

BTW, if Tara Tahmosh, the Principal of School of Arts and Sciences where QUEERCON was hosted, really cares about preventing a “higher rate of suicide in the LGBTQ community” then she would stop exposing her students to those who want to psychologically, emotionally, physically and spiritualty fundamentally transform her children into sodomites for the use and abuse of older male pedophiles, pederasts and perverts.

For you see these children know that what is being done to them is wrong, hurtful and harmful. Yet adults like Tahmosh are promoting, encouraging and defending this sinful behavior.

EDITORS NOTE: Staff sent the following email questions to Roxie Jerde,

Roxie,

I was troubled to learn that you and the Community Foundation funded QUEERCON at the Sarasota charter School of Arts and Sciences on September 17th.

This type of event is designed to groom underage children to have sex with pederasts, pedophiles and perverts.

I would appreciate your response to the funding of this event.

Please send me the list of organizations that your Knowledge & Equity department fund.

Joe and Hunter Biden Selling U.S. Natural Gas and Drilling Assets to China thumbnail

Joe and Hunter Biden Selling U.S. Natural Gas and Drilling Assets to China

By The Geller Report

Rep. Comer recently obtained new documents that show Hunter and Joe Biden were working to sell American natural gas and drilling assets to Communist China.Rep. James Comer (R-KY) went on with John Solomon from Just the News on RAV on Thursday.

The Biden regime has banned energy for Americans. But plenty for their paymasters

Treason as policy.

From the Committee on  Oversight and Reform:

House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) today is pressing Department of the Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen for information about the Biden family selling American natural gas to China in 2017 and Joe Biden’s involvement. Documents and communications obtained by Committee Republicans reveal Joe Biden was involved in the arrangement as a business partner, had office space, and may have benefitted financially from his family’s transaction selling American energy to a Chinese business closely affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party. Ranking Member Comer is calling on Secretary Yellen to provide all suspicious activity reports for the Biden family’s transactions with Chinese entities.

“Documents obtained by Committee Republicans show that the Biden family received millions of dollars from a Chinese business closely affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party, and therefore the Chinese government, to ship American natural gas to China. According to additional information provided by a whistleblower, Joe Biden was involved with this arrangement as a business partner, and documents reveal he even had office space to work on the deal. This comes to light at a time when the cost of natural gas is at a 14-year high and Americans struggle to pay their energy bills. The President has not only misled the American public about his past foreign business transactions, but he also failed to disclose that he played a critical role in arranging a business deal to sell American natural resources to the Chinese while planning to run for President,” wrote Ranking Member Comer. “We are concerned that the President may have compromised national security in his dealings with the country most adverse to U.S. interests—China.”

Under the Biden Administration, the Treasury Department changed its policy for releasing Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs)—a tool provided in the Bank Secrecy Act—to Congress. According to media reports, Hunter Biden and other Biden family members have racked up at least 150 SARs related to their foreign business deals. On May 25, 2022, Ranking Member Comer wrote to Secretary Yellen requesting all SARs generated for Hunter Biden and other Biden associates and family members’ financial transactions. He reiterated his request on July 6, 2022. In the Treasury Department’s September 2, 2022, letter to Committee Republicans, Treasury stated that SARs may be provided “upon a written request stating the particular information desired, the criminal, tax or regulatory purpose for which the information is sought, and the official need for the information.”

“Multiple whistleblowers have confirmed to Committee Republicans that from 2017 to 2021, the Biden family made promises to business associates that: (1) Joe Biden would run for President in 2020 and, (2) those who worked with the Bidens in 2017 onward would reap the rewards in a future Biden Administration. As America now struggles in an energy crisis, it is critical to understand why the Biden family was selling American energy reserves to the Chinese, if that is affecting President Biden’s decision making today, and why President Biden has never disclosed his relationship with the Chinese to the American public,” continued Ranking Member Comer. “If President Biden has worked to enrich not only himself but his family by promising, in exchange for millions of dollars, access or policy influence in a future Biden Administration, Congress and the American people are entitled to that information. Particularly since the Biden family promised business partners similar access to a future Biden Administration in other business deals, all while President Biden continues to deny any knowledge of Hunter Biden’s business dealings.”

The letter to Secretary Yellen and associated documents can be found here.

Prism of America’s Education

By Karen Schoen

“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.” ― Joseph Stalin


As I have said many times, the Globalists listen to their leaders. They followed Stalin’s advice.  Using George Soros’ money, World Economic Forum (WEF) graduates became Secretaries of State.  These people didn’t have to excel in college. Many got to college through Affirmative Action aka Diversity, Inclusion, Equity (DIE). This form of selection always leads to mediocrity. America is being run by these poorly educated people who have been trained to act and react upon emotion, cannot think for themselves and are just following orders. This thought process is filtered through the bureaucracy. Now these agencies are fully armed.  Is this the private military that only answered to the Executive Branch that Obama wanted? Will they replace our strong, competent military with illegals who will have no problem firing on Americans sin they have no allegiance to America? https://populistpress.com/the-long-slow-decline-of-the-u-s-military-puts-america-in-danger/

A New World Order (NWO), a new government controlled by the CCP, Marxists, Muslims, the rest of the communist dictators and America/Israel haters housed at the  United Nations (UN) will be the governing body.  You will now be known as a Global Citizen. Your allegiance will be to the World. The Globalists have been psychologically trained to manipulate the useless eaters into believing they will own nothing and be happy. Their view of humans is that we are worthless and deserve to suffer for destroying the planet and being racists.    https://rumble.com/v10ah9d-yuval-noah-harari-what-to-do-with-useless-people-my-recommendation-is-drugs.html

It is not difficult to see that the Globalists (those who want a NWO, New World Order with the communist UN at the helm) are in both parties. They are helping in the managed decline of America. Their choice is a world of poverty where they have their luxuries while We the People beg for crumbs from the global elite. In order to make this happen, the American middle class is now the enemy. Not only will we be censored, we will also be monitored. https://www.vice.com/en/article/y3pnkw/us-military-bought-mass-monitoring-augury-team-cymru-browsing-email-data

Will you allow this to happen on our watch.

Globalists have plans for us and MAGA is in the way. In order for them to execute their plans, they must lie. Whatever globalists say, think the opposite. Globalists hate the fact that we love America and the freedoms we still have. Obiden trashed MAGA without ever once saying MAGA stands for MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. Whistleblowers are stepping up and relaying the evil in this regime.

This election is our last chance. Who do you want to control your future?   United Nations with overly communist globalist members? or yourself? Join us today. Become part of history that preserves America.

Join the fight to get America out of the UN. Please share Important message from Karen Bracken:

He joins us today from Monterey where he has been on administrative hold since May.
