    “In his press conference in regards to the massacres in Aleppo, President Obama stated that “The world as we speak is united in horror at the savage assaults by the Syrian regime and its Russian and Iranian allies on the city of Aleppo…We have seen a deliberate strategy of surrounding, besieging and starving innocent civilians. We’ve seen the relentless targeting of humanitarian workers and medical personnel, [neighborhoods] reduced to rubble and dust. There are continuing reports of civilians being executed. These are all horrific violations of international law.”

    Another thing Obama did was introduce Obamacare, and overhaul our medical system. Obamacare was introduced under the guise that everyone would have medical insurance, the only thing is that it was mandatory and people had to pay for it themselves. In some cases the deductibles were so high that people were left unable to even use the insurance that they were being forced to pay for. I could get more into that subject, but what I really want to cover is the more sinister side of it. The real sinister side is that Obamacare changed medical care forever by encouraging doctors to provide less care and penalize those who did. It raised mortality rates and people who would have lived began to die. Since Obamacare, doctors are literally being indoctrinated to provide less care. They have become the gate keepers of life and death. According to their single handed judgment a patient either lives or dies. All too often the gate keeping decision is based on how they will get paid, or whether they will be penalized for providing you the adequate care you need.

    While it’s true that we all have the right to be seen by a doctor, it’s not true that we have the right to receive care once we are in the office. These kinds of health policies, whether intended or not, affected the weak and vulnerable of society, and those who are not healthy enough or strong enough are the first to perish.

    There was a time when medical care was about saving lives. Now, not only do they tell you that mammograms are unnecessary, but they don’t even want you to examine yourself. That says it all. If it was truly about the cost, then surely they would still let you do a free self exam. But that’s not where they are going with it, as you will see in the following quotes. Anyone who is a fan of critical thinking should pay attention. It’s amazing sometimes the things officials say and do, just assuming we are all incapable of putting 2 and 2 together.

    “Running The Numbers On Mortality Rates Suggests Obamacare Could Be Killing People:
    We know that the same year Obamacare’s insurance expansion provisions took effect, there was a pronounced, and statistically significant, surge in U.S. adult mortality. We know the surge in mortality remains after removing drug-related deaths, and other external morbidity causes, from the statistics”.

    “Section 3025(a) of the law required the Department of Health and Human Services to reduce Medicare payments to hospitals with higher-than-average readmission rates. The program began in October 2012, and since October 2014 has reduced payments by 3 percent to hospitals with high readmission rates for three conditions: heart failure, heart attacks, and pneumonia”.

    “In the decade prior to announcements of 30-day readmission penalties, 30-day heart failure mortality had dropped 16.2%, but over the analysis period, 30-day heart failure mortality was back on the rise. In 2008 the 30-day mortality was 7.9% and by 2014 it was up to 9.2%, a 16.5% increase, and an even larger increase relative to the pre-study trend with decreasing mortality”.

    “The Hospital Readmission Reduction Program Is Associated With Fewer Readmissions, More Deaths”.

    COPD readmissions reduction program decreases 30-day hospital readmission, may increase mortality:

    “Researchers from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston have found that while the 30-day readmission rate for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease has decreased, the mortality rate has increased”.

    “The findings, said first author Daniel Puebla Neira, UTMB Pulmonary & Critical Care Fellow, are concerning in that some hospitals, in seeking to avoid financial penalties by reducing readmissions, may inadvertently affect minority and disadvantaged patients – people who may have a higher risk of dying”.

    ObamaCare risks for the elderly:

    “Don’t trust ObamaCare’s definition of “value” either. Everyone wants value, but ObamaCare defines it in a way that produces the opposite: dangerously skimpy care for seniors.

    Section 3001 sets up a bonus system to reward hospitals for “value.” Bravo for rewarding hospitals that prevent infections. But the lion’s share of bonus points go to hospitals that spend the least per senior.

    That cost-cutting will shorten lives. Evidence from 208 California hospitals shows that Medicare patients treated in the lowest-spending hospitals had a worse chance of surviving their illness and going home than patients with the same diagnosis treated at higher-spending *hospitals”.

    “Medicare Proposal Pays Hospitals A Fixed Price For Heart Attacks:

    Medicare is offering to pay hospitals fixed amounts for heart attacks, following a proposal to pay set compensations for hip and knee replacements instead of letting healthcare providers bill for every service give to senior Americans, the Obama administration announced. This new proposal is the most noteworthy extension of the Obama administration’s efforts at cutting costs and improving the quality of care Medicare funds, the Wall Street Journal reports. Under this plan, hospitals that admit patients for cardiac care will be given a fixed price for all of the services provided in the hospital and within 90 days after discharge. If the hospitals bill for less, they can keep the remaining amounts but if they bill for more, they will have to reimburse Medicare. The proposal also includes prices for hip and femur fractures.

    Medicare generally pays hospitals and doctors separately for each service, which has been criticized as a reason for overtreating patients. The White House announced in 2015 that within three years, it would transfer half of Medicare’s expenses from managed care into alternative contracts with new incentives to control hospitals’ and doctors’ spending”.

    “Obama Administration Issues New Rounds Of Cancer Care Cuts Amidst Healthcare Reform Chaos:
    The Community Oncology Alliance (COA) issued a plea today to Congress to immediately stop the latest round of payment cuts the Obama Administration will make effective January 2014 to providing chemotherapy and other life-saving drugs to seniors with cancer”.

    “Limiting an oncologist’s ability to provide current, cutting-edge treatments, as
    will occur if the “Part B Drug Payment Model” is implemented, will likely result in inferior
    outcomes for Medicare beneficiaries with cancer. As a provider caring for Medicare
    beneficiaries diagnosed with cancer, I believe the proposed “Part B Drug Payment Model” is
    unworkable and ask Congress to please stop this experiment on seniors with cancer and other
    serious diseases treated with Part B drugs.

    I will use my time with you today to discuss why nationwide oncologists agree that the “Part B
    Drug Payment Model” will work counter to CMS’ goal of reducing costs and improving
    outcomes for cancer patients and will be detrimental to the medical care provided to the most
    vulnerable populations—seniors and disabled individuals covered by Medicare”.

    “How to Stop the Overconsumption of Health Care:

    Doctors and patients in the United States must work together to minimize waste in health care.

    In 2012, the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation launched the Choosing Wisely campaign to encourage doctors and patients to discuss the issue of unnecessary tests and treatments, also known as “overuse.” Building on initial efforts by primary care organizations, more than 60 medical specialty societies have identified more than 300 recommendations that should be addressed. The Choosing Wisely campaign focuses almost exclusively on professional education (through participating medical societies) and on public education in the form of videos and brochures for patients produced by Consumer Reports. As more and more health care organizations, medical groups, and individual doctors implement its recommendations, Choosing Wisely is helping to transform the culture of health care”.

    “Concern Is Growing That The Elderly Get Too Many Medical Tests: increasingly, questions are being raised about the overtesting of older patients, part of a growing skepticism about the widespread practice of routine screening for cancer and other ailments of people in their 70s, 80s and even 90s. Critics say there is little evidence of benefit — and considerable risk — from common tests for colon, breast and prostate cancer, particularly for those with serious problems such as heart disease or dementia that are more likely to kill them”.

    “Setting Limits on Demanding Patients”.

    “HealthWatch: Saying 'No' To Unnecessary Medical Tests: When it comes to good health, sometimes just saying 'no' to an unnecessary medical tests may be the best course of action.

    As for Dr. Bortz, he says just say 'no.'

    'No' to pap tests - if you've had a hysterectomy or over 65.

    'No' to PSA tests or mammograms - if you're over 75.

    'No' to electrocardiograms, blood panels and annual cholesterol tests - if you are otherwise healthy.

    Dr. Bortz maintains that patients need to know about health and be literate in how to take care of themselves”.

    “Doctors Call Out 90 More Unnecessary Medical Tests, Procedures: Doctors, often criticized for ordering up unneeded tests and procedures that harm quality and add to the nation’s tab for medical care, are calling into question scores of tests and medical procedures.

    The new lists include recommendations that advise medical-care providers:

    · “Don’t use feeding tubes in patients with advanced dementia.”

    · “Don’t perform routine annual Pap tests in women 30 – 65 years of age.”

    · “Don’t automatically use CT scans to evaluate children’s minor head injuries.”

    “Reducing the overuse of health care resources is a critical part of improving quality of health care in America,”

    “Doctors Could be Penalized for Ordering Prostate Tests: Medicare officials are considering a measure that would penalize doctors who order routine prostate-cancer screening tests for their patients, as part of a federal effort to define and reward quality in health-care services”.

    “Should women do breast self-exams? For years, many of us were told by our doctors to do regular breast self-exams (BSEs)’when we look at and feel our own breasts to detect lumps. It seems like a no-brainer, a kind of early warning system. But lately GPs have been telling us we should not do BSEs. That’s because, in 2007, the Canadian Cancer Society stopped recommending it as a way to find cancer. In 2006, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada changed its long-standing position, stating that BSE shouldn’t be taught to women unless they request it”.

    “New recommendations say most women don't need yearly mammograms”.

    “Why Skipping Even One Mammogram Can Be Dangerous for Your Health: Now a new study finds women who skip even one scheduled mammogram screening before a breast cancer diagnosis can face a significantly higher risk of death”.

    Obama took 716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. This cut would mean less care for the vulnerable.

    “Obama administration cut backroom deals with the nation’s top drug companies to win support for President Obama’s health care overhaul, threatening them with steeper taxes if they resisted and promising a better financial deal for the industry if they acquiesced.
    Obama agreed to drop his long-standing support for letting Americans buy cheaper foreign prescription drugs”.

    “In exchange, the White House gave them direct input into the new policies and promised to let them continue to set their own drug prices”.

    In the same way that half of congress and their families took Ivermectin and left the rest of us to die, they receive the best medical care in the world, and assign us all to the care in which no care is better care. It’s a sad day when medical care begins to resemble genocide of the elderly, poor, and weak.

    Here we thought they worked for us, not at all. They have put themselves in a class above the rest, to decide what is best for us all, not taking into account how we think or feel at all, treating us as subhuman. What they decide for us, even if it costs us our lives, does not apply to them.

    Obamacare was passed with public proclamations that it would make medical and prescription costs more affordable for all Americans. It was said to reduce Medicare costs. But the budget of Medicare will continue to rise out of control, because even more money will be given to hospitals for providing less care. The Medicare bonus system in place is a poorly disguised genocide on American seniors. Obama was a smooth talker and seemed dignified in appearance, but his actions in office were anything but dignified.

    This brings us to some of his other acts of “benevolence”. We will start with Obama teaming up with DARPA to map the human brain. The selling point is that it will be for medical purposes such as brain disorders. If that was the true intent of the project, indeed it would be a noble endeavor.

    “BRAIN Initiative:

    On April 2, 2013, at a White House event, President Barack Obama announced The BRAIN Initiative, with proposed initial expenditures for fiscal year 2014 of approximately $110 million from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Science Foundation (NSF)”.

    “All the President's Neuroscientists:

    President Obama's proposed Brain Activity Map Project could lead to cures for Alzheimer's, autism, and schizophrenia. But members of Congress should read the fine print when the $3 billion proposal hits their desks next month — because the project might also provide the first viable means of remotely controlling the human mind.

    The project, which is slated to cost north of $3 billion, is already well into its planning stages, and funding for it will probably be part of next month's federal budget proposal. A handful of scientists have come forward and revealed that they have been instrumental in the project's planning. Interestingly, most of these same scientists collaborated last year on an article in the academic journal Neuron. The article is called, "The Brain Activity Map Project and the Challenge of Functional Connectomics." There's every reason to believe that this article is a template for the soon-to-be-unveiled initiative. As such, it's worth a close read.

    Here's where things get sketchy. The technologies required to map the brains of lower life forms won't cut it with us. Our brains are too big, too complicated. While nanoprobes and other extensions of existing technology might get us part of the way, in order to get deep inside we'll have to invent an entirely new class of what the Neuron paper calls Wireless and Synthetic Biology Approaches. "We think that it will ultimately become feasible to deploy small wireless microcircuits, untethered in living brains, for direct monitoring of neuronal activity," the paper's authors write. A little later, they add that "potential options for a human BAM Project include wireless electronics, safely and transiently introducing engineered cells to make tight (transient) junctions with neurons for recording and possibly programmable stimulation, or a combination of these approaches."

    Two things should leap out from reading the above quote. First, the redundant and distracting use of the words "transient" and "transiently," a heavy-handed way to assure us that these untethered, internal brain monitors don't have to be permanent, trust us. Second, note the reference to "possibly programmable stimulation." Let's be clear about what that means: These probes they envision injecting into human brains will not only be able to record the firing of vast networks of individual neurons, but will possibly be able to control the firing of those individual neurons as well. Later in the paper, they come back to a variant of this same point, writing that they anticipate the project will foster the "development of novel devices and strategies for fine control brain stimulation."

    Of course, you could argue that these neuronal stimulators would just be more highly tuned versions of the implanted brain electrodes that the FDA already approves for the treatment of certain conditions like Parkinson's disease. There's a huge difference, though. It's one thing to give a coarse and leveling shock to a relatively huge swath of dysfunctional brain tissue. It's something else altogether to be able to wirelessly and independently stimulate every single neuron in the insanely complex intertwined circuits that make up the human brain. The Brain Activity Map Project wants to understand how our brains do what it is that they do, but it just so happens that the technology the project will develop to gain this understanding could also be used to make our brains do whatever they want. Wirelessly. From a distance. The truth is, most major scientific breakthroughs, like the human minds that give birth to them, have light and dark sides. And some of those dark sides are darker than others”.

    “The Brain Activity Map Project and the Challenge of Functional Connectomics”.

    “Barack Obama, Neural Nets, Self-driving cars, and the Future of the World:

    Obama: My general observation is that it has been seeping into our lives in all sorts of ways, and we just don’t notice; and part of the reason is because the way we think about AI is colored by popular culture.

    Obama: The way I’ve been thinking about the regulatory structure as AI emerges is that, early in a technology, a thousand flowers should bloom. And the government should add a relatively light touch, investing heavily in research and making sure there’s a conversation between basic research and applied research. As technologies emerge and mature, then figuring out how they get incorporated into existing regulatory structures becomes a tougher problem, and the govern*ment needs to be involved a little bit more”.

    (2016) “The Administration’s Report on the Future of Artificial Intelligence:

    Under President Obama’s leadership, America continues to be the world’s most innovative country, with the greatest potential to develop the industries of the future and harness science and technology to help address important challenges. Over the past 8 years, President Obama has relentlessly focused on building U.S. capacity in science and technology. This Thursday, President Obama will host the White House Frontiers Conference in Pittsburgh to imagine the Nation and the world in 50 years and beyond, and to explore America’s potential to advance towards the frontiers that will make the world healthier, more prosperous, more equitable, and more secure.

    Today, to ready the United States for a future in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a growing role, the White House is releasing a report on future directions and considerations for AI called Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence. This report surveys the current state of AI, its existing and potential applications, and the questions that progress in AI raise for society and public policy. The report also makes recommendations for specific further actions. A companion National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan is also being released, laying out a strategic plan for Federally-funded research and development in AI.

    In the coming years, AI will continue contributing to economic growth and will be a valuable tool for improving the world in fields as diverse as health care, transportation, the environment, criminal justice, and economic inclusion. The Administration believes that it is critical that industry, civil society, and government work together to develop the positive aspects of the technology, manage its risks and challenges, and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to help in building an AI-enhanced society and to participate in its benefits”.

    At the time, we were told our data was harvested for our own protection against possible terrorist threats. However, as you see in the following quote, the data was being used for AI. The Brain mapping program just mentioned above, that was for brain disorders, is also mentioned as an indirect contributor to the progress of AI research.

    “Major national research efforts such as the National Strategic Computing Initiative, the Big Data Initiative, and the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative also contribute indirectly to the progress of AI research”.

    “The current wave of progress and enthusiasm for AI began around 2010, driven by three factors that built upon each other: the availability of big data from sources including e-commerce, businesses, social media, science, and government; which provided raw material for dramatically improved machine learning approaches and algorithms”.

    Although Obama sells the endeavor towards AI, in a purely practical sense, he leaves out the many other avenues of use or possible abuses. He focuses on positive aspects and acceptable uses that we can all agree on, in other words, he’s selling it. Surely someone in his position who walks had in hand with DARPA couldn’t possibly be so naive as to not know of the darker endeavors in the works. Surely we can’t treat them all like flowers allowing them to flourish and then come in and trim them up later. Once this level of AI is out of the bag, it wont go back in. And let’s be frank and honest here. This is about remotely controlling American’s thoughts and emotions in line with whatever happens to be the agenda needed today.

    This same DARPA that Obama tasked for AI development is working on things like this.

    (2015) “DARPA Wants to Jolt the Nervous System with Electricity, Lasers, Sound Waves, and Magnets The defense agency announces funding for 7 projects under its new ElectRx program:

    Viewing the body as a chemical system and treating maladies with pharmaceuticals is so 20th century. In 21st century medicine, doctors may consider the body as an electrical system instead, and prescribe therapies that alter the electrical pulses that run through the nerves.

    That’s the premise of DARPA’s newest biomedical program, anyway. The ElectRx program aims to treat disease by modulating the activity of the peripheral nerves that carry commands to all the organs and muscles of the human body, and also convey sensory information back to the brain.

    Look at an anatomy chart and the importance of the vagus nerve jumps out at you. Vagus means “wandering” in Latin, and true to its name, the nerve meanders around the chest and abdomen, connecting most of the key organs—heart and lungs included—to the brain stem. It’s like a back door built into the human physiology, allowing you to hack the body’s systems.

    The final project will rely on magnetic fields to activate neurons, using a technique that could be called “magnetogenetics.” An MIT team led by Polina Anikeeva will insert heat-sensitive proteins into neurons, and will then deploy magnetic nanoparticles that bind to the surface of those neurons. When exposed to a magnetic field, these nanoparticles heat up and activate the neurons to which they’re attached”.

    While all of this sounds altruistic, there is more to the story. Remember in an earlier section “digital transition”, I mentioned Polina Anikeeva and a Ted talk she gave, in that talk she speaks of this very technology and how it could be used to hack the brain, without the subject ever being aware of it. It seems like they left that part out of their article.

    Rethinking the Brain Machine Interface: Polina Anikeeva 2015, “ Maybe we can start hacking the brain, without it ever noticing that it is being hacked”.

    Under the Obama administration things were really getting heated up in the world of body hacking science.

    (2016) “Genetically engineered 'Magneto' protein remotely controls brain and behaviour:

    Several earlier studies have shown that nerve cell proteins which are activated by heat and mechanical pressure can be genetically engineered so that they become sensitive to radio waves and magnetic fields, by attaching them to an iron-storing protein called ferritin, or to inorganic paramagnetic particles.”

    “The new technique builds on this earlier work, and is based on a protein called TRPV4, which is sensitive to both temperature and stretching forces. These stimuli open its central pore, allowing electrical current to flow through the cell membrane; this evokes nervous impulses that travel into the spinal cord and then up to the brain”.

    “They used genetic engineering to fuse the protein to the paramagnetic region of ferritin, together with short DNA sequences that signal cells to transport proteins to the nerve cell membrane and insert them into it”.

    “the researchers inserted the Magneto DNA sequence into the genome of a virus, together with the gene encoding green fluorescent protein, and regulatory DNA sequences that cause the construct to be expressed only in specified types of neurons. They then injected the virus into the brains of mice, targeting the entorhinal cortex, and dissected the animals’ brains to identify the cells that emitted green fluorescence. Using microelectrodes, they then showed that applying a magnetic field to the brain slices activated Magneto so that the cells produce nervous impulses”.

    “In one final experiment, the researchers injected Magneto into the striatum of freely behaving mice, a deep brain structure containing dopamine-producing neurons that are involved in reward and motivation, and then placed the animals into an apparatus split into magnetised a non-magnetised sections. Mice expressing Magneto spent far more time in the magnetised areas than mice that did not, because activation of the protein caused the striatal neurons expressing it to release dopamine, so that the mice found being in those areas rewarding. This shows that Magneto can remotely control the firing of neurons deep within the brain, and also control complex behaviours.”

    “Neuroscientist Steve Ramirez of Harvard University, who uses optogenetics to manipulate memories in the brains of mice, says the study is “badass”.

    During Obama’s second term DARPA awards Pfizer 7 million to research and develop protective antibodies to an emerging pathogen.

    (2013) “Pfizer Awarded DARPA Biodefense Contract – DoD Daily Contracts:

    Pfizer, Inc., has been awarded a $7,670,632 technology investment agreement. Pfizer shall perform a research and development program designed to develop a technology platform to identify and subsequently induce the production of protective antibodies to an emerging pathogen directly in an infected or exposed individual. Work will be performed in Cambridge, Mass. The estimated completion date is Dec. 8, 2016. Fiscal 2013 research and development funds are being obligated at time of award. The contracting activity is the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Arlington, Va”.

    “DARPA Hires Pfizer to Perform Groundbreaking Vaccine Research:

    For $7.7 million, DARPA wants Pfizer to rewrite the rules by which vaccines are created and diseases treated.

    The traditional method of "curing" a disease -- from which DARPA is deviating -- involves extracting a pathogen, isolating its antigen, and using that antigen to create a vaccine in vitro. This vaccine is then injected into a patient to stimulate his or her immune system to fight off subsequent exposures to the pathogen. DARPA, however, appears to be tasking Pfizer with finding a shortcut, whereby all of this would happen in vivo, within the patient's body, thus dramatically cutting the time between the discovery of a pathogen and the military's ability to treat it. Incidentally, if Pfizer is successful in this work, its research could have significant applications in the civilian world as well”.

    In that same year 2013, Moderna is awarded 25 million by DARPA for Advancing mRNA therapies and vaccines for biodefense.

    “CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Moderna Therapeutics, the company pioneering messenger RNA therapeutics™, a revolutionary new treatment modality to enable the in vivo production of therapeutic proteins, announced today that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded the company up to $25 million to research and develop its messenger RNA therapeutics™ platform as a rapid and reliable way to make antibody-producing drugs to protect against a wide range of known and unknown emerging infectious diseases and engineered biological threats”.

    Along with initiating a vast vision for Artificial intelligence, science, and medical research, Obama was also gathering vast amounts of information on every citizen through unconstitutional data gathering methods.

    An intelligence alliance called the Five Eyes, comprised of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States increased their intelligence capabilities after 9/11.

    “As of 2010, the Five Eyes also have access to SIPRNet, the U.S. government's classified version of the Internet.

    In 2013, documents leaked by the former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed the existence of numerous surveillance programs jointly operated by the Five Eyes. The following list includes several notable examples reported in the media:

    PRISM – Operated by the NSA together with GCHQ and the ASD
    XKeyscore – Operated by the NSA with contributions from the ASD and the GCSB
    Tempora – Operated by GCHQ with contributions from the NSA
    MUSCULAR – Operated by GCHQ and the NSA
    STATEROOM – Operated by the ASD, CIA, CSE, GCHQ, and NSA”

    The people wouldn’t find out about these unethical violations until Edward Snowden leaked them to the media. For this he was not treated like a hero, but instead treated as a criminal to be hunted down, in a seemingly ultimate message to the people that outing our public leaders for crimes, is a crime.

    “On June 6, 2013, Americans learned that their government was spying broadly on its own people.

    That’s when The Guardian and The Washington Post published the first of a series of reports put together from documents leaked by an anonymous source. The material exposed a government-run surveillance program that monitored the communications records of not just criminals or potential terrorists, but law-abiding citizens as well.

    Three days later the source unmasked himself as Edward Snowden, a National Security Agency contractor”.

    Snowden’s first leak:

    “The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April.

    The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.

    The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk – regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.

    These recent events reflect how profoundly the NSA's mission has transformed from an agency exclusively devoted to foreign intelligence gathering, into one that focuses increasingly on domestic communications”.

    The next day, Michael Hastings would publish his last article regarding Snowden’s leak. The last words in his article were “ Perhaps more information will soon be forthcoming”.

    Michael Hastings last article published on June 07, 2013

    “Why Democrats Love To Spy On Americans: For most bigwig Democrats in Washington, D.C., the last 48 hours has delivered news of the worst kind — a flood of new information that has washed away any lingering doubts about where President Obama and his party stand on civil liberties, full stop”.

    “Who Killed Michael Hastings?
    Early in the morning on June 18, a brand new Mercedes C250 coupe was driving through the Melrose intersection on Highland Avenue in Hollywood when suddenly, out of nowhere, it sped up. According to an eye-witness, the car accelerated rapidly, bounced several times then fishtailed out of control before it slammed into a palm tree and burst into flames, ejecting its engine some 200 feet away.

    The driver in the fatal crash was Michael Hastings, a 33-year-old crack investigative reporter for Rolling Stone magazine, whose June 2010 article, “The Runaway General,” exposed the behind-the-scenes failure of top U.S. General Stanley McChrystal’s counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan—and, even more damagingly, revealed McChrystal’s mocking attitude toward the Obama administration, which ultimately led to the general’s resignation.

    Hastings continued to report stories that illuminated the darker side of U.S. military actions, including an investigation into the Army’s deployment of psyops, or psychological operations, on U.S. senators visiting combat zones in order to secure more war funding.

    In Hastings’s 2012 book, “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” Hastings wrote about being approached by one of Gen. McChrystal’s aides. “We’ll hunt you down and kill you if we don’t like what you write,” said the unnamed aide, who afterwards apologized to Hastings for his remarks.

    Hastings later wrote, “I wasn’t disturbed by the claim. Whenever I’d been reporting around groups of dudes whose job it was to kill people, one of them would usually mention that they were going to kill me.”

    But never did those fears escalate the way they did during the final days and moments of Hastings’s life.

    L.A. Weekly interviewed Hastings’s neighbor, Jordanna Thigpen, who said Hastings was convinced that he was a target of surveillance after reading about the Department of Justice’s seizure of AP phone records in May. He became even more wary, she said, when details about the NSA’s domestic spying programs emerged in early June through former contractor Edward Snowden.

    “He was scared, and he wanted to leave town,” Thigpen said.

    The story that Hastings was working on at the time of his death centered around CIA Director John Brennan, the chief architect of President Obama’s foreign drone program. It related specifically to Brennan’s role as the administration’s point man tracking investigative journalists and their sources in Washington.

    This email from Stratfor, a CIA-connected private security firm whose emails were hacked and released to the public by Wikileaks in February of last year, reveals that Brennan was indeed behind the “witch hunts of investigative journalists.”

    The night of his death, Hastings had contacted Wikileaks attorney Jennifer Robinson and sent an email to his colleagues at the news site BuzzFeed, saying he was working on a big story and was “going off the rada[r],” citing fears over federal authorities interviewing his friends. Hastings blind-copied his friend, the Staff Sgt. Joe Biggs, whom Hastings had known from his time embedded in Afghanistan.

    According to L.A. Weekly, just hours before the deadly crash Hastings had asked to borrow his neighbor’s Volvo because he suspected his own car’s computer system had been hacked.

    The Los Angeles Police Department said repeatedly it suspects no foul play. Questioned after Hastings’s death, the FBI confirmed that the journalist was not under any investigation.

    But those statements were directly contradicted in September when redacted FBI documents surfaced following a Freedom of Information Act request by the news network Al Jazeera, which showed that Hastings was in fact under investigation for a story in which he had interviewed a U.S. soldier who had been captured in Afghanistan”.

    If you read Hastings last article, you will see he was telling us that although the citizens were unaware that we were being spied on, congress knew, and allowed it to happen. This says everything. He tells of two representatives that repeatedly tried to warn the people that there were serious violations taking place, and they couldn’t say what it was because they were bound by oath, and it was classified. Yet how is it possible that only two tried to speak up? This clearly shows how congress really operates. And that they are not on the side of the people. All of them knew.

    In Hastings last article he seems to almost be taunting the very government he had chastised in the article by saying more information will soon be forthcoming. In that same article Hastings rants about the people who have tried to expose government wrongdoings being targeted by the Obama administration, one of those targeted people he mentions is an investigative journalist Barrett Brown.

    Brown was involved with a research wiki called, “ProjectPM” (PPM). It is thought that Hastings was being investigated for having an association with Brown. At the time of Hastings death, Brown was serving time in a Texas prison facing a one hundred year sentence for having sifted though emails acquired by PPM. Those emails happened to be from the cybersecurity firm HBGary Federal and its parent company HBGary obtained thorough hacking.

    At the time of Hastings death he was working on a story about Brown’s case, was scheduled to interview him, said he was working on something big, and was in fear for his life.

    No one knew exactly what Hastings planned to cover, but it is thought it could have been about the hacked emails and ROMAS/Coin.

    “Your Data Is Mine

    Gallagher, who was briefed on the last discussion Hastings had with Brown before the planned interview, says, “Hastings had specifically asked about Romas/COIN.”

    Romas/COIN was the name given to a program through which the U.S had been conducting “a secretive and immensely sophisticated campaign of mass surveillance and data mining against the Arab world,” according to emailshacked from the cybersecurity firm HBGary Federal. Evidently, this program allows the intelligence community to “monitor the habits, conversations, and activity of millions of individuals at once.”

    “Over the course of a year, Aaron Barr, CEO of HBGary Federal, sought out various companies to form a consortium that could wrest control of Romas/COIN from the current contract holder, Northrop Grumman. Eventually the consortium included no less than 12 different firms — ranging from niche software companies to behemoths like Google, Apple, and even Disney.

    From the emails, it’s clear that “mobile phone software and applications constitute a major component of the program,” concludes the entry in ProjectPM. Periodic references to “semantic analysis,” “Latent Semantic Indexing,” and “specialized linguistics” indicate that the government agency overseeing the contract was clearly interested in automated dissection of spoken or written communication. This is the hallmark of NSA surveillance.

    Is it possible that this consortium planned on developing mobile phone software and applications with bugs that would allow the US government to hack into targets’ phones and give it access to all of the communications within?

    As detailed by New York Times national security reporter Mark Mazzetti, mobile phone intrusion has been par for the course in the military’s signals intelligence work abroad”.

    “Endgame Systems, one such company cashing in on this new market, was of particular interest to Brown and ProjectPM. Deep in the cache of Aaron Barr’s emails are indications of just how secret the work of Endgame is.

    In an email to employee John Farrell, then-Endgame CEO Chris Rouland states: “Please let HBgary know we don’t ever want to see our name in a press release”.

    “One look at Endgame’s product line explains a lot about their wariness. Their premier software, “Bonesaw,” shows what a powerful asset the corporation has become to America’s intelligence agencies.

    Bonesaw is a targeting application that tracks servers and routers around the world. It maps out all the hardware attached to the Internet. Through these access points, NSA and Cyber Command can hack into or launch attacks against adversaries. The Bonesaw program functions essentially as a user-friendly map.

    That map has at its disposal the geolocation and Internet address of every device connected to the Internet around the globe. By designating a country and city — like Beijing, China for example — and the name or address of a target — say, a People’s Liberation Army research facility — a user can find out what software is running on all of the computers inside the facility, what entry points to those computers exist, and a menu of custom exploits that can be used to sneak in”.

    “Other clues as to what ProjectPM-related material may have led the FBI to investigate Michael Hastings can be found in his published work.

    In a May 18, 2012, article on propaganda efforts by the State Department, Hastings referred to a “program being developed by the Pentagon [that] would design software to create “sock puppets” on social media outlets.” The HBGary emails are littered with references to this type of “persona management” technology.

    Principal among these was a June 2010 United States Air Force (USAF) contract from the 6thContracting Squadron at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida. It sought providers of “persona management software” that would allow 50 users to control up to 500 fictional personae.

    These sock puppets were required to be “replete with background, history, supporting details, and cyber presences that are technically, culturally, and geographically consistent.” In other words, avatars so convincing they could fool the people with whom they were interacting into believing they were real.

    MacDill Air Force Base is home to the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), the section of the military that oversees and coordinates all special-forces activity globally. USSOCOM lists under its “core activities” the employment of psychological operations (PSYOPS) and information operations (IO)—exactly the type of activity this “sockpuppeting” technology would be employed in.

    To put it another way: a clone army for future psywars”.

    It’s not shocking that our government would decide to use Psyops on their own people, since they were even using it on each other, something Hastings brought to our attention, most likely another reason he was hated by our Government. But you have to wonder how far they went to keep us from finding out?

    “Another Runaway General: Army Deploys Psy-Ops on U.S. Senators: The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in “psychological operations” to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned – and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.

    The orders came from the command of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in charge of training Afghan troops – the linchpin of U.S. strategy in the war. Over a four-month period last year, a military cell devoted to what is known as “information operations” at Camp Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell. When the unit resisted the order, arguing that it violated U.S. laws prohibiting the use of propaganda against American citizens, it was subjected to a campaign of retaliation.

    “My job in psy-ops is to play with people’s heads, to get the enemy to behave the way we want them to behave,” says Lt. Colonel Michael Holmes, the leader of the IO unit, who received an official reprimand after bucking orders. “I’m prohibited from doing that to our own people. When you ask me to try to use these skills on senators and congressman, you’re crossing a line.”

    The list of targeted visitors was long, according to interviews with members of the IO team and internal documents obtained by Rolling Stone. Those singled out in the campaign included senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, Jack Reed, Al Franken and Carl Levin; Rep. Steve Israel of the House Appropriations Committee; Adm. Mike Mullen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; the Czech ambassador to Afghanistan; the German interior minister, and a host of influential think-tank analysts.

    The incident offers an indication of just how desperate the U.S. command in Afghanistan is to spin American civilian leaders into supporting an increasingly unpopular war. According to the Defense Department’s own definition, psy-ops – the use of propaganda and psychological tactics to influence emotions and behaviors – are supposed to be used exclusively on “hostile foreign groups.” Federal law forbids the military from practicing psy-ops on Americans, and each defense authorization bill comes with a “propaganda rider” that also prohibits such manipulation”.

    “Congressmen Seek To Lift Propaganda Ban: An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned.

    The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the independent Broadcasting Board of Governors, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee's official website”.

    “The bill's supporters say the informational material used overseas to influence foreign audiences is too good to not use at home”.

    “ says one source on the Hill, who is disturbed by the law. According to this source, the law would allow "U.S. propaganda intended to influence foreign audiences to be used on the domestic population."

    The new law would give sweeping powers to the government to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”

    On Sept 11 1990 exactly eleven years before the 9/11 attacks, President Bush Sr called for a New World Order.

    “We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective -- a new world order -- can emerge: a new era -- freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony. A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we've known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice”.

    Only 9 months after declaring the vision to bring about a New World Order on June 13, 1992 Bush Sr signs the US onto Agenda 21.

    “We've signed a climate convention. We've asked others to join us in presenting action plans for the implementation of the climate convention. We've won agreement on forest principles. We found a warm reception among the G - 7 and many developing countries to our Forests for the Future initiative. Many U.S. proposals on oceans and public participation on the importance of economic instruments and free markets were included in this mammoth Agenda 21 document and the Rio Declaration”.

    The premise of Agenda 21 sounds somewhat noble. Most of us would agree that we need to do all we can to stop deforestation, adopt cleaner energies, and protect our waters. But what started out as Agenda 21 has morphed into something grotesque. It involves bio engineering, trans-humanism, and total surveillance, in other words and end to everything we have ever known and loved. It is clear, this agenda has nothing to do with saving the environment, and everything to do with bringing about a New World, as Bush Sr said, “a world quite different from the one we've known”.

    While one could be led to believe that the reasoning behind reducing population, or implementing climate agendas could have altruistic reasoning should take heed at Ferguson's words as quoted earlier in the Population control section, “Once population is out of control it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it. "The professionals," said Ferguson, "aren't interested in lowering population for humanitarian reasons. That sounds nice. We look at resources and environmental constraints. We look at our strategic needs, and we say that this country must lower its population-or else we will have trouble”.

    It seems every president no matter who they are have been following a similar pattern and agenda, that all seems to be leading to the same place. But then you read the transcripts, and it all starts to make sense.

    “Ferguson and others involved with the OPA and NSC group maintain that the United States will continue a foreign policy based on a genocidal reduction of the world's population."We have a network in place of cothinkers in the government," said the OPA case officer."We keep going, no matter who is in the White House.

    Need famine, disease' However, said Ferguson, "The population might weaken itself, especially if the war drags on, [and] you could have disease and starvation, like what happened in Bangladesh and Biafra. Then you can create a tendency for population to fall very rapidly. This could happen in El Salvador. When that starts happening, you have total political chaos for a while, so you must have a political program to deal with it.

    "I can't estimate how many people might die that way. It could be a great deal, depending on what

    The preconditions for the holocaust Ferguson hopes for now exist in EI Salvador.

    The New York Times reports that the country's small and medium-size villages are already depopulated by 50 percent. EI Salvador survives on exports of sugar, cotton, and coffee. This year's coffee crop has been cut more than half, sugar is down by over 20 percent, and coffee by 7 percent. These facts spell mass starvation in the near term for the war-weakened peasantry”.

    As you read these words it all sounds reminiscent. The wars, the fabricated food shortages, and penetrating the cabinets.

    There is a master plan and the people keep being fooled into picking a side, but none of those sides are on our side, they are simply the means necessary to herd the masses.

    President Trump 2

    In my Introduction and throughout this outline I have covered President Trump, and what seems to be his contributions to the agenda. So I will keep this section on Trump brief as the rest is written throughout. If you lay out his actions, whether by ignorance or by design, he helped pave the way for what are seeing in the world. Each President has worked to further the agenda weakening the Liberties of the people. He took specific actions early in in his presidency that enabled the agenda to move forward unhindered.

    Just like Obama had done passing legislation to fast track Artificial Intelligence.

    “Trump signs executive order to spur US investment in artificial intelligence: President Tump signed an executive order creating the “American AI Initiative” — a high-level strategy guiding AI development within the US.

    The initiative will redirect federal funding and resources towards AI research, as well as call for the creation of US-led international standards in AI, and new research into the retraining of American workers”.

    These are powerful tools, and would play a vital role in his police reform, and pre-crime vision.

    “Video surveillance is becoming far more powerful than most people realize”.

    “ A face recognition and video analytics company has created a product that provides a stark reminder of the power of these technologies and how they are likely to be used over time by law enforcement, powerful corporations, and others, if we as a society allow it”.

    “Now, face recognition and other analytic techniques appear to have brought social network analysis to video surveillance. And who knows what purposes such mining could be used for”.

    “The bottom line is that when we see a video camera today, we need to update our intuitions about what it’s capable of. It may no longer be just collecting inert and unused video, but, especially if that camera is part of a larger network, the data it collects could be mined for insights about our lives across space and time”.

    “Government agencies at the local and federal level are exploring, and in many cases already using, automated tools to allocate resources and monitor people. This raises significant civil rights and civil liberties concerns”.

    “In some cities, police are using artificial intelligence to predict where crimes might occur and to deploy officers and surveillance technologies accordingly. The Trump administration wants to collaborate with Silicon Valley to build a system to mine the social media accounts of foreigners to determine who might be a "threat."

    “Worse, such algorithms tend to be shrouded in secrecy, closed off to external auditors who might be able to test them for bias and make needed corrections. Because of that secrecy, often imposed by private companies that refuse to reveal their source code, people can’t effectively contest the decisions made by these tools. The data and algorithms used to make fateful decisions about people’s lives are simply out of public reach”.

    During a recent rally in April of 2022, he reiterated that if he is elected he will bring back the rule of law.

    “We will stop the Democrat crimewave. We will give police the power they need, and the respect they deserve”.

    “We will restore law and order in America”.

    Another threat to our Liberties, enabled by the pandemic was “Health Surveillance”.

    “The Coronavirus Relief Bill Promotes Surveillance for Health:
    The package includes $500 million for tracking and data collection, worrying some government watchdogs.

    “President Trump on Friday signed the largest relief bill in US history, a $2 trillion lifeline to businesses, hospitals, and workers hit hard by the explosive spread of the coronavirus. More than 160,000 Americans have tested positive for the virus, according to the John Hopkins Coronaviurus resource center, more than any other country. But some civil liberties advocates and government watchdogs worry that the measure could enable new types of surveillance of Americans, without adequate privacy safeguards. They fear that emergency provisions could become routine over time”.

    “This includes $500 million for a “public health surveillance and data collection system” meant to track the spread of the virus. Other countries use similar data to detect disease hot spots, decide where to allocate resources, and enforce quarantines or lockdowns”.

    “ Legal scholars say the final version focuses on providing money to strengthen local and state responses, with a heightened focus on data collection and surveillance”.

    “Information and data collection are vital parts of the plan. The CDC will issue grants to carry out a number of tasks, many of which could be handled by technology companies: real-time updates on the spread of the virus, community messaging via social media, identifying and counteracting misinformation, assessing travelers’ risk of exposure, and predictive modeling of the future spread of the virus.

    “This new information will drive the next phase in our war against this invisible enemy,” Trump wrote to the governors”.

    These trends that we have all watched transcend and evolve from president to president, did not end with the Trump Administration. It has taken many years to slowly introduce the agenda, however the coronavirus seems to have fast tracked it for implementation, with the universal acceptance of our loss of liberties, and the lessening of health care.

    President Biden

    “Joe Biden Is Privatizing Medicare: The Biden administration is expanding Donald Trump’s Medicare privatization scheme that is forcing hundreds of thousands of seniors onto for-profit health plans”.

    “Joe Biden is forcing hundreds of thousands of seniors onto new private Medicare plans without their consent”.

    “Medicare Advantage plans often deny needed care, federal report finds: Every year, tens of thousands of people enrolled in private Medicare Advantage plans are denied necessary care that should be covered under the program”.

    “The development represents a troubling new dimension in the fight by corporate interests to privatize Medicare, the federal health insurance program for people sixty-five or older. Medicare Advantage, which allows for-profit health insurers to offer privatized benefits through Medicare, already results in unexpected costs for routine procedures and wrongful denials of care”.

    In many ways what the other presidents paved the way for, Biden is rolling out mercilessly. For instance, he had assured the people that he had no intention of mandating the vaccine.

    “President-elect Joe Biden on Friday said that he won’t impose national mandates to get vaccinated for COVID-19”

    ““No, I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it be mandatory,” Biden said of vaccines at a press conference in Delaware”.

    Only 9 months into his term, he changes his mind.

    “Biden declares sweeping new vaccine mandate: 'This is not about freedom': President Joe Biden formally announced his plan to force companies with more than 100 employees to vaccinate workers against the coronavirus or test them weekly and dismissed concerns about encroaching on personal freedoms.

    "This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden said during a Thursday address to the nation. "It's about protecting yourself and those around you, the people you work with, the people you care about, the people you love. My job as president is to protect all Americans."

    “In his speech, Biden expressed frustration with unvaccinated Americans multiple times and said that he "understands" the "anger" that the vaccinated have against those who have not taken the vaccine.

    "We've been patient but our patience is wearing thin and your refusal has cost all of us," Biden told the tens of millions of unvaccinated people in the country”.

    Come to find out that Pfizer already knew their vaccine had killed 1200 people in the first three months, yet they mandated it anyways.

    This was an unprecedented move, as Dr. Peter McCullough has said, “after five reported deaths where a medical product is suspected of being involved, the FDA will issue a black box warning — a notice to consumers warning them that the drug might cause death. At around 50 suspicious deaths, the product is pulled off the market”.

    It wasn’t long before we began firing those who would not take the vaccine. This opened up the old playbook for manufacturing a crisis.

    Our nation was already in the throes of a labor and health care worker shortage, during a covid spike, then we fired those who would not comply, compounding the issue. This would create a grave crisis in the hospitals, where hospitals would be understaffed and flooded with more patients than they could handle, resulting in more deaths. Not only that, the labor shortage would create supply chain issues. Shelves would go bare. Keep in mind food shortages at home mean starvation abroad.

    Also it has been proven that the vaccinated can be infected and have the same amount of viral shedding as the unvaccinated, and the right masks, such as an N95 when used properly, do work. If this is the case, as we know it is, then the reasons for mandates don’t add up.

    “Officials warn vaccine mandates could exacerbate truck driver shortage: Federal vaccine mandates to be imposed on companies with more than 100 employees may exacerbate a truck driver shortage across the U.S. that could contribute to further supply chain delays”.

    “Supply-chain crisis, hoarding products spark food shortages across US: Parts of the US are now battling food shortages as worried Americans have emptied supermarket shelves amid the supply chain crisis threatening the nation’s economy and holiday shopping”.

    “Land O’Lakes, one of the biggest farm cooperatives in the country, told Bloomberg that it’s producing plenty of milk, but that the massive backlog of ships waiting to enter California’s two largest ports has led to problems getting milk to people.

    “The challenges in the supply chain continue to be issues such as driver shortages, labor and congestion at the ports,” Land O’Lakes chief supply officer Yone Dewberry told the outlet.

    Meanwhile, in Denver, shoppers have reportedly struggled to find milk due to broken parts at the regional supplier’s plant”.

    “Bloomberg also reported there have been snags in the production or distribution of cereals, tortillas and juices that have kept those products off the shelves”.

    “Vaccine mandate firings cascade as employers face toughest labor market in years: Government mandates, company policies requiring COVID-19 vaccines, lead to thousands of firings”.

    “The cascading firings come as the U.S. has 10.6 million job openings, according to the Labor Department, which works out to 0.7 job-seekers per open job”.

    “Some layoffs are mandatory due to government policies. In October, more than 33,000 health care workers in New York state were fired, retired or placed on unpaid leave because they refused to get vaccinated in accordance with the state's policy”.

    “Health care workers quitting over vaccine mandates adds to staffing crisis: Dec. 3—Stress, burnout, politics and frustration have all led Indiana nurses and health care workers to leave the field in droves as the COVID-19 pandemic approaches its third year.

    Now, another issue has been added to list: vaccine mandates”.

    “What happens when nursing homes have to downsize due to staff shortages brought on by the state’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate? There’s growing concern that the vaccine mandate imposed on most healthcare and support workers at hospitals and nursing homes will result in a crisis”.

    “An upstate New York hospital will stop delivering babies later this month, in part because of employee resignations over a requirement they be vaccinated against COVID-19”.

    These are manufactured crisis. The worker shortage was manufactured, it didn’t have to happen. The effect’s are bare shelves, poverty, and higher covid death rates. Not just covid death rates, but death rates in all other health fields. Inflation isn’t getting better, but only getting worse. In many ways this is also a slow, drawn out fleecing, slowly the poor and middle class will begin to lose what they have. The poor will get poorer while the rich get richer.

    “Inflation will cost the average US household $5,200 more in 2022: When comparing the cost of goods and services in 2021 to expected costs this year, Bloomberg economists said the average U.S. household will spend $5,200 more, or $433 more per month”.

    We fired truckers during a food shortage amid the highest inflation in years, we fired nurses during a healthcare worker shortage amid a pandemic. These were not the only manufactured contributions.

    (Nov 2021) “Fuel oil — up 60% to average of $3.42 per gallon
    Gasoline (unleaded regular) — up 57% to average of $3.48 per gallon”.

    The truth is that gas prices are something that can be manufactured based on production, the largest oil producers are the US, OPEC, and Russia. In the past the US was at the mercy of OPEC who could manipulate the market at will. Now that the US is the number one producer it is not as susceptible.

    Across the internet you will find fact check after fact check stating that gas prices have nothing to do with Biden, that it’s simply due to low supply and high demand. What they left out of the fact checks is that the president has the power to broker deals that raise or lower production. The gas prices are set according to production and demand and that can be controlled through production.

    In March of 2019 gas prices were soaring once again, President Trump asked OPEC to increase production to lower prices. If you look at the graphs there is no rise in production by either OPEC or Russia, but the graph for the US shows an increase. It appears his requests were declined, so he took matters into his own hands and increased production at home.

    (March 2019) “Trump says it’s ‘very important that OPEC increase the flow of oil’ because prices are too high: President Donald Trump told OPEC on Thursday that its members should start pumping more oil, marking his second warning to the producer group this year as crude prices continue to rise.

    Trump’s latest tweet comes as OPEC and a group of allies led by Russia are cutting production following a collapse in oil prices in the final months of 2018. The output curbs by the so-called OPEC+ group have played a major part in the rebound in the oil market this year”.

    Then the pandemic hit, people weren’t driving as much, there was more production than demand, and the price began to plummet. Some states were paying as little as $2.00 a gallon. This time President Trump wanted to bring the prices back up. He then threatened to pull US Support in the Saudi led war on Yemen if they didn’t lower their production in order to bring the price of oil back up. In they end they agreed, it wouldn’t be long before inflation began to rise, and gas prices increased again. If you look at the graphs both OPEC and Russia drastically cut production in April of 2020 after President Trump requested it. Also the production was reduced at home. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how the prices are manufactured. These prices affect more than the how much it costs to fill up our tank. It also sets inflation, and that affects all markets.

    US crude oil production.

    OPEC crude oil production.

    Russia crude oil production.

    “Special Report: Trump told Saudi: Cut oil supply or lose U.S. military support: April 2 phone call, Trump told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that unless the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) started cutting oil production, he would be powerless to stop lawmakers from passing legislation to withdraw U.S. troops from the kingdom, four sources familiar with the matter told Reuters”.

    “A senior U.S. official told Reuters that the administration notified Saudi leaders that, without production cuts, “there would be no way to stop the U.S. Congress from imposing restrictions that could lead to a withdrawal of U.S. forces.” The official summed up the argument, made through various diplomatic channels, as telling Saudi leaders: “We are defending your industry while you’re destroying ours.”

    “On April 12, under pressure from Trump, the world’s biggest oil-producing nations outside the United States agreed to the largest production cut ever negotiated. OPEC, Russia and other allied producers slashed production by 9.7 million barrels per day (bpd), or about 10% of global output. Half that volume came from cuts of 2.5 million bpd each by Saudi Arabia and Russia, whose budgets depend on high oil-and-gas revenues”.

    Less than one month after Trumps deal with OPEC to cut production:

    “US grocery costs jump the most in 46 years, led by rising prices for meat and eggs: The Labor Department reported Tuesday that prices U.S. consumers paid for groceries jumped 2.6% in April, the largest one-month pop since February 1974”.

    If the world governments wanted to lower gas prices and stabilize the economy they would. If they don’t it’s not because it is out of their hands but because they chose not to.

    As if food prices, inflation, and the cost of gas weren't enough, now the Government wants to take more. What will happen when everyone is taking more than we have to give? Now property taxes are set to skyrocket, in some cases going up more than 100%. At the same time that they are creating the conditions for people to suffer major financial loss, corporations are buying up all of the homes, outbidding regular buyers. The corporations are fleecing the people, and their government rubber-stampers are just along for the ride, approving and assisting everything they do. To be clear, the government has been nothing more than an enforcement and legislative arm of the corporations for a very long time now.

    “The next shock for homeowners: Surging property tax assessments: Anne Van Donsel said she didn't quite believe it when her hometown of Burlington, Vermont, last year sent her a new property tax assessment stating that the value of her home had doubled — raising her property taxes by 20%”.

    "We had about 10,000 appeals" out of about 210,000 property parcels after the county sent out its new appraisals, he added. "A lot of them, their complaint was that it went up too much — some went up 50%, some 100% or more — and the complaint was it just went up too much at one time, and I understand that. It's the sticker shock."

    “BlackRock, other investment firms 'killing the dream' of home ownership: The New York City risk and investment management titan BlackRock is among several high-powered firms pushing working families out of the housing market and into rentals, therefore depriving them of capital and the opportunity to build credit and equity.

    According to a Wall Street Journal report, BlackRock – led by billionaire Laurence Fink – is purchasing entire neighborhoods and converting single-family homes into rentals; while in cities like Houston, investors like Fink account for one-quarter of the home purchasers”.

    Just in case the people weren’t crushed enough the Feds decided it was time to raise the interest rates. Claiming that it will lower demand for products, and although it might not lower prices, it will slow the rise of inflation. In other words- starve us out. This will outright crush the poor, already mortgage rates are rising to unbearable levels, preventing more people from owning a home. What they are saying is we will raise inflation and the prices on everything to the point that people can’t afford to buy anymore, then inflation will slow down. This is nothing more than a fleecing, and a giant step toward reducing our consumption.

    “reduced demand lowers inflation

    At the same time, this is exactly what slows the pace of inflation. Prices for goods and services typically go up when demand for them rises. But when it becomes more expensive to borrow, there’s less demand for goods and services throughout the economy. Prices may not necessarily go down, but their rate of inflation will usually decline”.

    “The risks of raising rates too quickly

    But our example assumes a fixed supply. As we’ve seen, the global economy has been dealing with massive supply chain disruptions and shortages. And these problems have driven up production costs in other parts of the world.

    If high U.S. inflation stems mainly from these higher production costs and low inventories, then the Fed might have to raise interest rates by a great deal to contain inflation. And the higher and faster the Fed has to raise rates, the more harmful it will be to the economy”.

    “Why interest rates aren’t really the right tool to control inflation: When the problem is lack of supply, the Fed’s tool kit is useless”.

    “It may be heresy to those who think the Fed is all-powerful, but the honest answer is that raising interest rates wouldn’t put out the fire. Short of throwing millions of people out of work in a recession, higher rates wouldn’t bring supply and demand back into balance, a necessary condition for price stability.

    The Fed (and those who are clamoring for the Fed to raise rates immediately) have misdiagnosed the problem with the economy and are demanding the wrong kind of medicine.

    The problem isn’t too much demand; it’s too little supply”.

    In the article above the writer spoke about how the Feds haven’t addressed the true problem that normally raising the rates would be the fix if people were spending more, but in our current case interest rates are said to be rising because of too little supply, and that raising the rates is not the right answer. Something else to take into consideration is that there isn’t really too little supply either, there is plenty of supply but those supplies are being suppressed from reaching the people. That makes this entire thing orchestrated.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    Blackrock CEO Larry Fink has said that corporations are going to have to start forcing behaviors.

    “Behaviors are going to have to change, this is one thing we are asking companies. You have to force behaviors, at Blackrock we are forcing behaviors”.

    “BlackRock exec says ‘entitled generation’ who ‘never had to sacrifice’ will face shortages: BlackRock President Robert Kapito on Tuesday said an "entitled generation that has never had to sacrifice" is going to face shortages as they've never experienced before.

    "For the first time, this generation is going to go into a store and not be able to get what they want," Kapito said, adding: "We have a very entitled generation that has never had to sacrifice."
    “He warned that people who have grown accustomed to having everything available to them at the supermarket would soon face "scarcity inflation."

    "I would put on your seat belts because this is something that we haven’t seen," he said”.

    It’s no shock that suddenly CEO Larry Fink said, globalization is ending and we are going back to domestic production. This is clearly the stage they have set, to cut off supplies to those who need them the most. These people have done everything in their power to suppress the supply of everything. If we and the rest of the world withdraw our food and supplies from global markets, those in third world nations will face imminent starvation. Who are they to decide what’s best for the world, or who gets to live or die?

    Larry Fink says globalization is over — Here’s what it means for markets: “There is a lot of talk about countries going back to local production and the era of globalization and long overseas supply chains is over,”said Chris Rupkey.”

    “Russia’s aggression in Ukraine and its subsequent decoupling from the global economy is going to prompt companies and governments world-wide to re-evaluate their dependencies and reanalyze their manufacturing and assembly footprints —something that Covid had already spurred many to start doing,” Fink said”. https://www.markettradingessentials....s-for-markets/

    I think most of us would be happy to hear there may be an end to globalization, however based on everything we have seen and know, we are not being told the truth, and this is simply a means of herding the masses. In this case the agenda is not even a secret anymore, yet we keep being fooled and herded like sheep.

    Interest rates are rising, and we are being told to reduce our consumption in an already scarce market. While ships sit in ports out to sea for miles, the cost of shipping in some cases have risen up to 659%. All of these changes are increasing the cost of everything. These are manufactured crisises. Larry Fink stated publicly that corporations need to force people to change. Somehow even with words as blunt as those, we don’t seem to put two and two together.

    “The biggest price jump was along the route from Shanghai to Rotterdam in the Netherlands, with the cost of a 40-foot container soaring 659%”.

    Global container freight index 2022 | Statista.

    These are not the only tools being used to manufacture the crisis we are seeing in the world.

    Nation wide farmers are being paid to not grow crops, the reasoning behind the program does make some sense, however consider the fact that our world is facing a true food crisis, where there will be mass starvation and death. Many factors have impacted our food supply, fuel prices, inflation, war, climate, and storms that have devastated farm land. Taking crop land out of circulation during such a crisis is unthinkable, it could directly relate to the deaths of hundreds of thousands if not millions. It could be considered deliberate. Measures such as these should not be taken during times of crisis.

    The program was created in 1985, it rents land from farmers for 10 years to leave some of their land unplanted to create wild life habitats, reduce agricultural run off, and prevent soil erosion. Biden’s new program would up the rental to 30 years.

    (nation wide program) “The Biden administration will pay farmers more money not to farm: The goal is to add 4 million acres of farmland to the Conservation Reserve Program, which takes land out of production to blunt agriculture’s environmental impact.

    “The Biden administration announced on Wednesday that it would expand a program that pays farmers to leave land fallow, part of a broader, government-wide effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030. The new initiative will incentivize farmers to take land out of production by raising rental rates and incentive payments”.

    This raising of rental rates on American farmers implies the Biden administration is conspiring with banks or companies that are renting the land to selectively punish farmers who do not comply with higher rent prices. Since when is this OK?

    In California there is an old water war taking place, since they built the dams to ease drought conditions, the salmon population was driven to near extinction. Year after year water is held back at the Shasta dam, and then released later in the year when the salmon make their run. When the water in the reservoir is too shallow, it gets too hot and kills the salmon eggs. The solution has been to hold more water back so that it’s deeper, and colder.

    The issue is that when the water is held back Californians are placed on drought restrictions, and farmers don’t get the water they need to irrigate. Then when the salmon run, the water that was held back from the residents and farmers is just dumped into the sea. I won’t argue the importance of the salmon, they are critical. But year after year all of that water is released in the efforts to save 30 to 1000 salmon.

    As we speak the world is facing mass starvation, you would think that during an emergency such as this that they would reconsider this practice, at least until the crisis is over. Many believe the drought conditions are exacerbated by these practices, making the severity of the droughts manufactured.

    To make matters worse California has begun to buy back water from farmers, and is paying farmers to not grow crops in order to save water. California is one of the largest producers of food in the world, also referred to as the “Food Basket of the World”. The world depends on them, and now while the world faces mass starvation, we are asking them to stop growing food. This cannot be left unquestioned as millions of lives hang in the balance.

    Another thing that is intensifying the drought and issues we refer to as climate change is that, when we ask the farmers to ration water from the rivers, they are forced to resort to drawing from the aquifers, and this has caused many of the aquifers to run dry. This only compounds the issue, never giving the aquifers a chance to recharge. In many ways these are manufactured catastrophes.

    “The Central Valley Feeds the Country and the World”: “California continues to set the pace for the rest of the nation as the country’s largest agricultural producer and exporter, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture”.

    According to the U.S Geological Services the Central Valley supplies eight percent of U.S. agricultural output and produces 1/4 of the Nation’s food, including 40 percent of the Nation’s fruits, nuts and other table foods.

    According to the USGS website, more than 250 different crops are grown in the Central Valley, and it holds an estimated value of $17 billion per year.

    The valley was almost made to become what it is today, one of the leading producers of various types of foods, with the world’s largest patch of Class 1 soil, the best there is”.

    “California is the country’s biggest exporter of many agricultural commodities, supplying more than 99 percent of almonds, artichokes, dates, dried plums, figs, garlic, kiwifruit, olives and olive oil, pistachios, raisins, table grapes and walnuts”.

    “California’s 77,500 farms produce more than 400 commodities, and two-thirds of the nation’s fruits and nuts. About one-quarter of what California produces is exported around the world”.

    “Central valley is home to almost 7 million people .It's is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world. Its nick name is "the Fruit Basket of the World." Central valley is home to a large live stock farms making California the first State in term of cheese and milk production passing the State of Wisconsin, and oranges (more than the State of Florida), cotton (more than the State of Texas). Central Valley is also the primary source for a number of vegetables and fruits found in all US markets including apricots, almonds, tomatoes, grapes, asparagus, corn and much more”.

    (2015) “10 Billion Gallons of Water to Save a Few Fish?: Congressman Tom McClintock blasts the Obama administration in comments regarding a 10 billion gallon water release from the New Melones Dam.

    Mr. Speaker:

    California is now in its fourth year of the worst drought on record. Hydrologists estimate it is the worst drought in 1,200 years. The Sierra Snowpack today is just six percent of normal. Many of our reservoirs are nearly empty. One of our largest, the New Melones Reservoir on the Stanislaus River, is at just 22 percent of its capacity – with the rainy season now officially over.

    Water rationing is now in effect in many communities. Many Californians face $500 fines if they take too long in the shower or spill a gallon of water on their sidewalks.

    And yet in the last several weeks, the Bureau of Reclamation has released about 10 billion gallons of what precious little water remains behind the New Melones Dam in order to nudge a handful of steelhead trout toward the ocean”.

    “Who in his right mind would dump enough water to meet the annual residential needs of a population of 300,000 human beings in order to nudge toward the ocean the offspring of maybe 29 steelhead trout – it could be as few as 6 – in the worst drought in 12 centuries? Yet that is precisely the policy of this administration”.

    “Ironically, before we built these dams, in a drought like this, there would be no water in the rivers and there would be no fish”.

    (2016) “How plans to save fish species could cut summer water supply: This year was supposed to be different. With Northern California’s reservoirs finally brimming and cities liberated from stringent conservation rules, farmers were expecting more water for their crops. The worst of the drought seemed over.

    Or maybe not.

    Despite a winter of fairly abundant rain and snow in the north state, federal fisheries regulators are considering a set of plans that would put Sacramento Valley reservoirs on a tight leash again this summer. Their aim is to prevent two endangered California fish species from going extinct.

    Critics say two federal plans under discussion could cause another year of water shortages in farms and cities across the state”.

    “The first proposal involves holding back substantial volumes of water at Shasta Lake into the summer to protect juvenile winter-run Chinook salmon. Maintaining a deeper pool of water behind Shasta makes for colder water. The idea is to release that colder water later in the year, when the salmon make their annual return to their spawning grounds below the dam”.

    “The second plan aims to rescue the Delta smelt, which also teeter on the brink of extinction. The Bureau of Reclamation, which operates dams in the federal government’s Central Valley Project, is considering letting more water flow to the Pacific Ocean through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta this summer”.

    (2015) “California’s drought has been devastating to the state’s environment, economy and its residents. This year, it will cost California about $2.7 billion and over 10,000 agricultural jobs. Nearly 600,000 acres of farmland in the state lay fallow because of the drought”.

    “Since 2008, 1.4 trillion gallons of water has been flushed into the San Francisco Bay to protect the Delta smelt, an endangered species of fish, from water pumps. That’s enough water to sustain over 6 million people for six years”.

    (Apr 2021) “Newsom will reveal his updated budget proposal next month. Assembly Democrats updated their “budget blueprint” on Wednesday to include “increased investments” in things like “drought resiliency” and clean water”.

    “About $285 million would be spent protecting fish and wildlife from the drought, including the state buying back water from farmers so it can be returned to the Sacramento and San Joaquin river delta”.

    (Mar 2021) “California plan would pay farmers to grow less to save water: SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California would pay farmers not to plant thousands of acres of land as part of a $2.9 billion plan announced Tuesday aimed at letting more water flow through the state’s major rivers and streams to help restore the unique habitat in one of North America’s largest estuaries.

    The agreement, signed Tuesday between state and federal officials and some of California’s biggest water agencies, would result in about 35,000 acres of rice fields left unused — or about 6% of the state’s normal crop each year, according to the California Rice Commission".

    “California Wants to Pay Farmers to Not Farm This Year : This year, California farmers have been given a financial incentive to not plant crops”.

    “As part of a $2.9-billion plan to try to keep water flowing in California rivers, the state will pay farms to keep thousands of acres vacant this growing season”.

    “The most impacted sector will be the rice industry, as the plan would leave 35,000 acres of rice fields in the northern Central Valley—adding up to about six percent of the yearly crop—unused.

    California produces virtually all of domestically grown sushi rice, and the Central Valley is responsible for a quarter of the nation’s crops”.

    “The new initiative keeps wildlife in mind, as officials are looking to restore 28,300 acres of additional habitat for animals and help revitalize populations of creatures such as salmon”.

    “California Farmers Facing Drought Are Choosing Empty Fields”.

    Biden appeals to his voters by promoting a climate agenda, but just how climate friendly is Biden? We should always look at actions as well as words.

    Let us look at the facts, Biden claims to care about the environment, yet the US remains the largest producer and exporter of LNG in the world, and the third largest producer of oil.

    “With a conservative estimate of 9,352,000 barrels per day, the United States has been a top oil-producing country for years. The United States is also one of the largest oil consumers on the planet. Given the country’s economic reliance on oil, the United States should not expect to see a drop in oil production anytime soon. Despite being the world’s third largest oil producer, the US purchases and imports 7.5 billion barrels of oil-related goods per year”.

    “Top 10 Countries that Produce the Most Natural Gas: United States — 914.6 billion, Russia — 638.5 billion, Iran — 250.8 billion”.

    “US becomes world’s top exporter of liquefied natural gas”.

    “U.S. LNG Is Quickly Becoming The World’s Hottest Commodity: U.S. LNG exports are soaring as some of the world’s top buyers race to purchase American gas. Russia’s war in Ukraine will likely drive even more demand for U.S. LNG in the coming months”.

    “Japan will consider providing financial support to boost production of liquefied natural gas in the U.S.”

    “Hagiuda and Granholm also are to issue a statement expressing the importance of U.S.-produced LNG and affirming that expanded American output would help stabilize global energy supplies.

    Senior Japanese officials will meet to advocate for expanded American production of LNG. They plan to increase investment for existing projects in the U.S. through Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp., the state-owned explorer known as JOGMEC”.

    “Largest oil and gas producers made close to $100bn in first quarter of 2022: The tumult of war and climate breakdown has proved lucrative for the world’s leading oil and gas companies, with financial records showing 28 of the largest producers made close to $100bn in combined profits in just the first three months of 2022”.

    While the fossil fuel industry raked it in big, Biden touted a climate revolution, while with the other hand he was busy maintaining and expanding his place as the number one producer of LNG, and one of the largest producers of oil in the world. These actions are anything but environmentally friendly. LNG requires fracking, and that is one of the greatest offenders and threats to our fresh water supply.

    Our world is facing water scarcity and droughts, this has nothing to do with water disappearing naturally, the truth is that water on our planet never goes away, it moves from one place to another wherever conditions are sufficient. However there is one thing that does remove water from future use, and that is pollution. Some practices pollute water to such a degree that the water must be stored forever in underground aquifers or wells, rendering that aquifer and water unusable for consumption ever again. One of these practices is fracking.

    The process of fracking alone contaminates nearby aquifers destroying the environment killing and sickening people and animals. The nearby aquifers will be rendered toxic, causing a massive loss of already scarce fresh water sources, and that does not include the millions of gallons used in the process of fracking that will be too contaminated to ever use again.

    Biden has vowed to protect our waters, yet if we look at his actions, they say otherwise. The water used for these dirty practices will not go back into circulation. This will only exacerbate droughts, and the water crisis leading to eventual famine. We will keep blaming the change in our climate on everything but the real culprits.

    (2014) “Fracking is depleting water supplies in America's driest areas, report shows: From Texas to California, drilling for oil and gas is using billions of gallons of water in the country's most drought-prone areas”.

    “America's oil and gas rush is depleting water supplies in the driest and most drought-prone areas of the country, from Texas to California, new research has found.

    Of the nearly 40,000 oil and gas wells drilled since 2011, three-quarters were located in areas where water is scarce, and 55% were in areas experiencing drought, the report by the Ceres investor network found.

    Fracking those wells used 97bn gallons of water, raising new concerns about unforeseen costs of America's energy rush”.

    “It can take millions of gallons of fresh water to frack a single well, and much of the drilling is tightly concentrated in areas where water is in chronically short supply, or where there have been multi-year droughts”.

    “Facking is destroying U.S. water supply, warns shocking new study: Toxic wastewater from fracking jumps 14-fold from 2011 to 2016 — and it may get 50 times bigger by 2030.

    An alarming new study reveals fracking is quite simply destroying America’s water supply.

    That means we are losing potable water forever in many semi-arid regions of the country, while simultaneously producing more carbon pollution that in turn is driving ever-worsening droughts in those same regions”.

    “Shallow Fracking Wells May Threaten Aquifers: An analysis finds that thousands of oil and gas hydraulic fracturing wells are less than a mile deep”.

    “Several thousand near-surface hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, operations for oil and natural gas production in the U.S. pose a potentially significant risk of contaminating drinking water sources”.

    “Fracking uses water, sand, and an often-proprietary blend of chemicals, which may include benzene, toluene, and other hydrocarbons. Oil and natural gas drilling companies force the mix underground under high pressure to fracture pockets of rock and release oil and gas trapped within, which they draw to the surface.

    Shallow wells are cheaper and easier to operate, says Robert B. Jackson of Stanford University, who led the new study. “However, they pose a greater risk for groundwater contamination since they are close to drinking water aquifers.” These groundwater sources can rest from hundreds to thousands of feet below the surface, and natural geologic cracks or faults and past drilling activities can provide a pathway between shallow fracking sites and an aquifer, allowing fracking chemicals, oil, and methane to reach drinking water supplies. Currently, groundwater in Wyoming and California is being investigated for possible fracking-related contamination”.

    “Fracking Can Contaminate Drinking Water: It took nearly a decade, but former EPA scientist Dominic DiGiulio has proved that fracking has polluted groundwater in Wyoming”.

    Eight years ago, people in Pavillion, Wyo., living in the middle of a natural gas basin, complained of a bad taste and smell in their drinking water. U.S. EPA launched an inquiry, helmed by DiGiulio, and preliminary testing suggested that the groundwater contained toxic chemicals.

    Then, in 2013, the agency suddenly transferred the investigation to state regulators without publishing a final report.

    Now, DiGiulio has done it for them.

    He published a comprehensive, peer-reviewed study last week in Environmental Science and Technology that suggests that people’s water wells in Pavillion were contaminated with fracking wastes that are typically stored in unlined pits dug into the ground.

    The study also suggests that the entire groundwater resource in the Wind River Basin is contaminated with chemicals linked to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking”.

    “Fracking Fluids Could Contaminate Freshwater Aquifers, Says Study: The study, done by hydrogeologist Dr. Tom Myers and published in the peer-reviewed Ground Water, raises renewed questions about the potential for hydraulic fracturing to fundamentally alter shale rock formations and the hydrogeologic cycle in ways that could affect freshwater drinking supplies”.

    How Fracking Has Contaminated Drinking Water: Lisa Finley-DeVille started drinking bottled water around the same time her friend’s horses began to get sick and die. A half decade ago on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in western North Dakota, Finley-DeVille drove up to see her friend in the New Town area. The horses looked dehydrated and brittle, just skin and bones. They’re eating, but it’s like they’re not eating, her friend told her.

    The explanation, Finley-DeVille believes, was down the hill, at the pond the horses drank from. She suspects wastewater from nearby oil and gas production leaked there, where the horses drank it up, poisoned. “I’m always worried,” Finley-Deville says. “This is why we don’t drink the water.”

    “We’re Just Starting to Learn How Fracking Harms Wildlife: Mounting evidence proves that natural-gas and oil extraction threatens wildlife and ecosystems — much as it harms human health”.

    “Chemicals in fracking fluid and wastewater are toxic, study shows”.

    Not only that but in order to save the forests, Biden has proposed that we double logging, and implement more controlled burns. Controlled burns are one of the largest threats to forests, they have ignited many of the largest forest fires in history.

    “Biden's order directs federal land managers to define and inventory mature and old-growth forests nationwide within a year. The order requires the Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service to identify threats to older trees, such as wildfire and climate change, and develop policies to safeguard them.

    The order does not ban logging of mature or old-growth trees, the White House said”.

    “Timber industry representative Nick Smith said before the order was made public that loggers are worried it will add more bureaucracy to a forest management framework already unable to keep up with growing wildfires due to climate change.

    That would undercut the Biden administration's goal of doubling the amount of logging and controlled burns over the next decade to thin forests in the tinder-dry West, said Smith, a spokesman for the American Forest Resource Council, an Oregon-based industry group.

    "The federal government has an urgent need to reduce massive greenhouse gas emissions from severe wildfires, which can only be accomplished by actively managing our unhealthy and overstocked federal forests," he said”.

    “Critics, including many forest scientists, say officials are allowing removal of too many older trees that can withstand fire”.

    “Forest Service in ‘paradigm shift’ to use logging, controlled burns to prevent wildfires:

    The report calls for a “paradigm shift” in preventing fires, shifting away from fire suppression and toward a combination of logging to reduce forest density and prescribed, controlled burns.

    “We need to thin western forests and return low-intensity fire to western landscapes in the form of both prescribed and natural fire, working to ensure that forest lands and communities are resilient in the face of the wildland fire that fire-adapted landscapes need,” the report said.

    Under the plan, the Forest Service could treat an additional 20 million acres of national forest area, plus 30 million acres of other federal, state and tribal lands over the next 10 years, according to the report”.

    Biden's prescribed burns are already being implemented, and have now caused one of the largest forest fires in that states history.

    (2022) “U.S. Forest Service defends prescribed burn that caused Hermits Peak fire: A United States Forest Service spokesperson said the prescribed burn that got out of control to become the Hermits Peak fire is a rare occurrence, and she defended prescribed burns as a necessary risk required to protect the nation’s forests”.

    “A Santa Fe National Forest crew ignited what was supposed to be the 1,200-acre Las Dispensas prescribed burn April 6, and officials have since said “unexpected erratic winds” fanned embers beyond the perimeter of the burn site.

    What became the Hermits Peak fire burned about 7,500 acres before joining forces with the Calf Canyon fire a couple weeks later. At the time it merged, the Hermits Peak fire was about 91% contained, according to the Southwest Coordination Center.

    The combined Hermits Peak-Calf Canyon fire has now burned nearly 190,000 acres in northern New Mexico — according to Monday, May 9 numbers — quickly becoming the second-biggest fire in state history. The megafire caused thousands to flee their homes and torched hundreds of structures.

    Unprecedented wind surges in the coming days could mean the fire spreads even further out of control. It’s 43% contained”.

    “Last week, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham called on the federal forest agency to rework its rules around prescribed burns in the Southwest, specifically when it comes to starting fires in the spring windy season. U.S. Rep. Teresa Leger Fernandez also wrote a letter last week to the USFS secretary demanding answers about how the prescribed burn was approved.

    A New Mexico fire expert told Source New Mexico last week that it was “extremely risky” to have ignited the burn in early April”.

    “Prescribed burns have caused some of the largest fires in New Mexico: ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In the past 22 years, 8% of the state has been on fire and two of the largest fires to burn land in New Mexico were started by the federal government”.

    Let us look at the facts, we are being told to save forests we need to burn them and thin them. The forests are too dry, and so they easily ignite and turn into catastrophic fires. While the part about them being dry is true, let us look at why that is. It is as though scientists aren't doing their science thing.

    If a person takes even a short time to study the hydrological cycle they will see that thinning the forests and burning them will only make them even more dry, increasing the risk of even more fires.
    When we remove trees we change the climate, trees breathe and cool the air, they produce rain by a process called evapostranspiration. You can clearly see it when you look out over a forest and see the dense cloud layer that sometimes forms. The trees crate rain that recharge aquifers, and feed rivers and lakes. If we cut them down, there will be less moisture in the air, and the water cycle will change, and disrupt the climate. It will only get hotter and drier.

    To truly save the climate we would have to stop cutting down trees, especially our old growth trees, and plant as many more as we could. It is the most natural way to cool the planet and end droughts. Our unchecked logging has led to this mega disaster, and we want to log our way out of it. The more we cut, the hotter it will get, and when trees get too hot they stop absorbing carbon, leading to even more devastating effects on the climate.

    When we remove forests, we change the water cycle, changing the regional climate, and the water will move to areas of the planet where conditions are sufficient. This could cause storm energy as weather patterns try to balance themselves out. This, in turn, leads to floods and droughts, causing a domino effect of crop failures and famine. As the climate changes people will be displaced.

    “Evapotranspiration (ET) is a term used to refer to the combined processes by which water moves from the earth’s surface into the atmosphere. It covers both water evaporation (movement of water to the air directly from soil, canopies, and water bodies) and transpiration (movement of water from the soil, through roots and bodies of vegetation, on leaves and then into the air). Evapotranspiration is an important part of the local water cycle and climate, as well as measurement of it plays a key role in agricultural irrigation and water resource management”.

    You have to wonder, is the Biden administration really concerned about the environment or is it just something that sounds good, but is also serving an alternate agenda? Those of us with enough intelligence should take a closer look and see if this administration’s actions align with what they say.

    Old growth trees are the most important trees in the forest, they capture more carbon because they grow faster than young trees. In California a fire swept through one of our most precious old growth forests, these trees are designed to withstand fire, yet they are set to be logged.

    “Big old trees grow faster, making them vital carbon absorbers”.

    (Oct 2021) “After California wildfire, thousands of trees to be removed: In the wake of California wildfires, upwards of 10,000 trees weakened by fires, drought, disease or age must be removed, work that will keep a nearby highway closed to visitors who seek the world’s two largest sequoia trees”.

    “Forest officials said earlier this month the fires may have killed hundreds of giant sequoias, but the full extent of the damage has not been determined.

    The fire’s impact on giant sequoia groves was mixed. Most saw low- to medium-intensity fire behavior that the sequoias have evolved to survive, and the most notable trees survived”.

    (Aug 2021) “Following the money: Who profits from trees damaged by the SQF Fire being cut down? There’s a huge amount of distrust in the Sequoia Crest community right now”.

    “People living in the Giant Sequoia National Monument were told to sign paperwork to allow an arborist and forest management specialist onto their property to mark trees that pose a threat of falling.

    But then people saw that trees they viewed as healthy were being marked.

    Cal OES says it marks trees that are dead, dying, or likely to die as a result of the SQF Complex Fire within 5 years that pose a risk to infrastructure or roadways.

    If there’s a roadway or building within the distance of twice the length of a tree that meets that criteria, it comes down.

    Ann Campbell says that was not explained before people signed the Right of Entry paperwork.

    “They say they’re here to help us and help the community yet they’re harming us by taking down green trees and using a five-year window, which no arborist I’ve talked to thinks is valid. That’s where it’s hard to reconcile that they’re trying to help us. It doesn’t seem like they are.”

    There are also some trees that aren’t marked when people think they should be. Gloster has been taking pictures of them.

    “I mean, giant spirals that are completely no limbs, absolutely dead, dangerous, ready to come down, within 50 feet, maybe even less of the [public] roadways, but they’re focused on cutting down live trees,” said Gloster.

    “Some of the mistrust is over where the money is coming from to fund the Hazard Tree Removal Program, and where it’s going”.

    “They’re ripping up the soil and damaging trees in the process, too, particularly in the Valley where it’s very steep and it’s also drainage. They responded to me at the meeting and also in writing that it’s not their issue and they’re not responsible if wash-out erosion happens because of what they’ve done, take it up with your insurance company. Well I asked the insurance company, and they said, not their problem.”

    (Nov 2021) “The Forest Service’s massive hazard tree removal proposal: The Forest Service is proposing a massive “Post-Disturbance Hazardous Tree Management” program that would clear dead, dying, and damaged trees along hundreds of miles of roads and trails on nine National Forest in California. The program “…includes hazard tree felling and removal, as well as removal of downed woody fuels resulting from hazard trees (slash), to reduce public safety hazards along portions of roads, trails, and near facilities (campgrounds, trailheads, Forest Service offices).”

    “Forests affected by the program include the Klamath, Six Rivers, Shasta-Trinity, Mendocino, Lassen, Plumas, Sierra, Sequoia, and Inyo. The program is in response to numerous wildfires that have burned through these Forests in the last few years”.

    The cleared areas would equal up to 1.5 times the average height of the dead and dying trees. Assuming the average tree height is 100 feet, that means a 150-foot-wide area would be cleared on each side of an affected road or trail, creating a cleared swath more than 300 feet wide. The Forest Service claims the program is needed to protect public safety from falling trees and to reduce fuel loading on the ground to reduce future wildfire threats”.

    “The Forest Service may seek an “Emergency Situation Determination” (ESD) from the Chief of the Forest Service to expedite the proposed project. This would enable the agency to sell hazard trees for their commercial value before they begin to rot, but it bypasses the pre-decisional objection process, which allows the public and other affected agencies to object to project actions and negotiate positive changes”.

    “Wide cleared swaths are also proposed along major access trails leading into some of California’s most popular and iconic wild places”.

    “Wide swaths of forest along some of the most scenic highways and roads in Northwest California and in the Sierra Nevada are proposed for clearing”.

    (Oct 2021) “How a California state forest became a battleground for logging redwoods on public land: Surrounding this tree are other redwoods that have been felled or girdled, meaning large swaths of their bark have been carved away from their trunks. More redwoods are marked blue — they too are slated for a timber harvest. Dead foliage and piles of branches abound.

    The wounded and dead trees look like casualties left behind on a battlefield. And in a way, that’s what they are”.

    “Welcome to Jackson Demonstration State Forest, a 48,652-acre forest managed by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire). Although it’s little-known outside the coastal Northern California county of Mendocino, Jackson has become ground zero in an escalating war over the management of redwoods on public land, with catastrophic wildfires and global climate change necessitating urgency and raising the stakes”.

    “You can't fight over fallen trees,” says Michelle McMillan, media representative for a direct action group called the Mama Tree Network, which has thwarted multiple logging attempts over the past six months. “We want to change the long-term management of this forest.”

    The debate can feel complicated, but this much is clear: Jackson contains some of the most important second-growth redwood stands in the world. And this time, they aren’t going down without a fight”.

    “Last year, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order directing state agencies to develop nature-based solutions for addressing climate change by sequestering carbon, creating wildlife habitat and benefiting all Californians, particularly those in disadvantaged communities. Since the announcement, Cal Fire has contracted timber companies to harvest large, second-growth redwoods in six areas of the forest”.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    (2022) “Lawsuit challenges timber plan that allegedly includes thousands of old growth trees”.

    What we are seeing is a man made perfect storm, for one of the greatest disasters of our time. It seems we are being sold the snake oil version of environmentalism. One manufactured crisis after another the world falls deeper and deeper into the pit of fear.


    The Biden administration has taken steps toward what he calls protecting water, but is there an ulterior motive? He wants to introduce water surveillance, keep in mind during the Trump administration they introduced health and wastewater surveillance. This might sound like a good idea, but this is all part of a bigger agenda. If you take a dive into the Digital EU, you will find that environmental surveillance is a major part of the agenda. They want to use surveillance to monitor the entire earth, and all of our actions in the name of saving the climate. Their agenda goes hand in hand with the Great Reset. Earlier I posted a quote out of Policy Horizons Canada that gave a hypothetical of what our future could look like. If you look at all of the evidence, all of the actions it points to the fact that they are rolling out the infrastructure for this future they envision as we speak.

    This vision of theirs gives them total control, and it means the loss of liberty, freedom, and individuality. If they want to implement something that all of us would oppose, they just use fear. If they tell us it is to protect us, we let them do what we would have never let them do otherwise.

    “Exploring Biodigital Convergence: As I head to the bathroom, I pause at the window to check the accelerated growth of the neighbouring building. Biological architecture has reached new heights and the synthetic tree compounds are growing taller each day. To ensure that the building can withstand even the strongest winds – and to reduce swaying for residences on the top floors – a robotic 3D printer is clambering around the emerging structure and adding carbon-reinforced biopolymer, strengthening critical stress points identified by its AI-supported sensor array. I am glad they decided to tree the roof of this building with fire-resistant, genetically modified red cedar, since urban forest fires have become a concern.

    While I’m brushing my teeth, Jamie, my personal AI, asks if I’d like a delivery drone to come pick up my daughter’s baby tooth, which fell out two days ago. The epigenetic markers in children’s teeth have to be analysed and catalogued on our family genetic blockchain in order to qualify for the open health rebate, so I need that done today.

    I replace the smart sticker that monitors my blood chemistry, lymphatic system, and organ function in real time. It’s hard to imagine the costs and suffering that people must have endured before personalized preventative medicine became common.

    Also, I’ll admit that it sounds gross, but it’s a good thing the municipality samples our fecal matter from the sewage pipes. It’s part of the platform to analyze data on nutritional diversity, gut bacteria, and antibiotic use, to aid with public health screening and fight antibiotic-resistant strains of bacterial infections”.

    “Biden administration moves to boost cybersecurity of water systems: The Biden administration on Thursday announced a new plan to secure U.S. water systems from cyberattacks, part of a broader effort to defend elements of domestic critical infrastructure from digital threats.

    The White House and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a new “action plan” for the water sector that aims to encourage water utilities to adopt technology that helps detect cyber threats to industrial control systems, or ICS, early on. The administration intends to implement the plan over 100 days, according to the White House”.

    “Public Health Surveillance: Preparing for the Future”

    “Our strategy to improve public health surveillance builds on prior progress inside and outside CDC. It prioritizes rapid improvements that can be made at CDC in the short term, while laying the groundwork for ongoing evaluation and modification of surveillance systems. It challenges CDC to transform and modernize our surveillance systems, demonstrate rapid improvements, and inspire trust with surveillance partners in the field, all using a stepwise approach”.

    “National Wastewater Surveillance System (NWSS): A new public health tool to understand COVID-19's spread in a community. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC launched the National Wastewater Surveillance System (NWSS) in September 2020”.

    “Ethical Justification for Conducting Public Health Surveillance Without Patient Consent: Public health surveillance by necessity occurs without explicit patient consent.

    There is strong legal and scientific support for maintaining name-based reporting of infectious diseases and other types of public health surveillance.

    We present conditions under which surveillance without explicit patient consent is ethically justifiable using principles of contemporary clinical and public health ethics. Overriding individual autonomy must be justified in terms of the obligation of public health to improve population health, reduce inequities, attend to the health of vulnerable and systematically disadvantaged persons, and prevent harm”.

    “Post-COVID Public Health Surveillance and Privacy Expectations in the United States: Scenario-Based Interview Study: In the context of pandemic mitigation technology, including app-based tracking, people perceive a core trade-off between public health and personal privacy. People tend to rationalize this trade-off by invoking the concept of "the greater good." The interplay between the trade-off and rationalization forms the core of sociotechnical issues that pandemic mitigation technologies raise”.

    “Privacy Versus Public Health: The Impact of Current Confidentiality Rules:

    Public health research and practice often have been facilitated through the evaluation and study of population-based data collected by local, state, and federal governments. However, recent concerns about identify theft, confidentiality, and patient privacy have led to increasingly restrictive policies on data access, often preventing researchers from using these valuable data.

    We believe that these restrictions, and the research impeded or precluded by their implementation and enforcement, have had a significant negative impact on important public health research. Members of the public health community should challenge these policies through their professional societies and by lobbying legislators and health officials to advocate for changes that establish a more appropriate balance between privacy concerns and the protection of public health”.

    “Although these well-intentioned national and local standards are designed primarily to protect human participants' rights and confidentiality, they have unintended consequences. They have had a major negative impact on the conduct of public health research and practice”.

    Clearly our rights have become a hindrance. These hindrances are mitigated through fear based tactics, and new policies are implemented for the “greater good”.

    In all truth if we wanted to save the environment we would just implement cleaner energy, stop dumping contaminated water into our freshwater sources, and manage our land and water better. That alone would go along way towards solving the issues, and to clean the air.

    Currently the world is being sold on total surveillance as the method to implement the cure to our climate woes. How on earth does total surveillance of our every waking moment have anything to do with going green? The green movement has been hijacked by powerful people with an ulterior agenda to reshape the world. The people who did this to our planet, are the same corporations behind these new agendas. While our representatives and leaders talk about saving the climate, if you truly look at their actions they are doing no such thing, facts are facts. Instead of saving the earth, they are looking for ways to manipulate and control the entire world population.

    “Digitalisation for the benefit of the environment: Council approves conclusions:

    The Council today approved conclusions addressing the twin societal challenge of digital transformation and green transition and exploring ways to contribute to building the necessary bridges between them.

    The conclusions give political guidance to the Commission with a view to presenting appropriate initiatives to exploit the opportunities offered by digitalisation for environmental protection and climate action”.

    “Digital monitoring of environmental zones: A new law is to make it possible to scan number plates in Germany to prosecute criminal offences. This could also lead to digital monitoring of vehicles in German low emission zones. Other EU states are leading the way”.

    “According to article 1, the objective of the European Regulation 2019/1020 on Market Surveillance and Compliance Products is to improve the functioning of the internal market by strengthening the market surveillance of products.

    Among other things, EU Member States must ensure EU product surveillance and verify how efficient are the EU RoHS, REACH SVHC, Battery, and Packaging regulations by July 21st, 2021. In doing so, a Product Compliance Network for coordinated enforcement is established (chapter 8 of 2019/1020) and the cooperation of both local “economic operators” and international organisations is required”.

    Emergency and environmental surveillance.

    Due to these threats of fear we have allowed surveillance to slowly creep into every aspect of our lives. One by one giving up our liberties and birth rights as living beings. The elite are rolling out their agenda nearly unhindered. They believe the people will not rise up to stop them, and that even if we organize and rise up against them, we don’t stand a chance.

    As Yuval Noah Harari, lead advisor for Klaus Schwab said, “I think once you’re superfluous, you don’t have power.

    Again, we are used to the Age of the Masses, of the 19th and 20th centuries…We saw all these successful massive uprisings; revolutions, revolts. So we got used to thinking about the masses as powerful. But this is basically a 19th century and 20th century phenomenon.

    I don’t think that the masses, even if they they somehow organize themselves stand much of a chance. We are not in Russia of 1917 or in 19th century Europe”.

    They must have been in for quite the shock when the Truckers in Canada began their peaceful protest. Successful uprisings weren’t supposed to be possible. For a time the people had begun to awaken from their brainwashed state, this was a threat to the status quo. It was only getting started, the uprisings began to go global. It wouldn't have been long before the world awakened from its madness.

    “The Canadian trucker convoy is the single most successful human rights protest in a generation: this protest is less than a week old and already is causing deep pain to at least one global industry. It's hard to overstate the historical significance of what we're watching right here”.

    They knew these peaceful protests threatened the agenda, they immediately started to drop vaccine and mask mandates world wide. They said it had nothing to do with the protests. This wasn't their only move. They also published a terrorist advisory that would deem certain forms of speech as terrorism, going to so far as to include calling “undermining public trust in the government” as terrorism. In the bulletin they appear to state they will be working with big tech to implement it.

    The corporations have had more say than the people for a long time now, but what will we do when the illusion of government and democracy is gone? What will we do when corporations are no longer managing from the shadows, but become the government themselves? This pairing of government and corporations is just the first step. Just like the TV series “Contiuum” that was widely popular, but bought out by a corporation and canceled. If you want a peek into the future they have planned for us, I recommend you watch this series. In the series they had a Corporate Congress that enslaved the people and chipped their brains, recording and controlling their every waking moment. In the show there is a part where they have traveled back into the past to stop this future from happening, and there is a point where law enforcement and government teams up with corporations, and it is the first step in the future corporate congress. Seeing this document below is very much like that part in the show.

    “Summary of Terrorism Threat to the U.S. Homeland”.

    “The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest”.

    “The proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions.”

    “DHS and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) continue to share timely and actionable information and intelligence with the broadest audience possible. This includes sharing information and intelligence with our partners across every level of government and in the private sector”.

    These moves were not enough, however. Convoys were gathering worldwide to emulate the Canadian’s. As facts about vaccines and mandates were coming out, the Biden administration needed something powerful to shift attention. We immediately started a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine. This would tick so many boxes for the agenda, and implement roll outs unhindered. This would crush the uprising, diverting attention, pave the way for ending those pesky legacy systems, population reduction through mass starvation, and control of the people through perpetual fear. This would open the door to more surveillance, emergency use excuses, and losses of Liberty.

    Wait, we started the Ukrainian conflict? In order to understand how Biden forced Russia’s hand in war you have to look at recent history in an unbiased way.

    Whoever controls the flow of energy controls the world, holding title as the greatest superpower.
    Trump set out to make the US energy independent, but that was not all, he also wanted to be the number one exporter in the world. His great nemesis was Nord Stream 2, the only thing in his way.

    Trump worked to sell the idea of US LNG imports to replace Russian imports, claiming it was protection from Russia, which was code word for we will dominate the market.

    It wasn't long before Trump achieved making the US the largest exporter if LNG in the world.

    To keep the US place of power he put sanctions on Nordstream2, stopping Russia's advancements toward independence & power. Both the EU & Russia strongly condemned the sanctions.

    Fast forward to the Biden administration and you will find some things never change, the ambition is still the same.

    Behind the scenes a lobbying war has been taking place over the Nordstream2 pipeline. Ukraine spent millions lobbying against Nordstream.

    Russia pays Ukraine 2 billion per year in transit fees. Nordstream would have meant that Putin no longer had to rely on Ukraine for the transport of gas.

    Biden threatens to shut the pipeline down if Russia invaded Ukraine. Biden claimed it was a measure he would take to punish Russia if they invaded Ukraine.

    Going against his own word, Biden pulled the trigger and shut down Nordstream, even though Russia had not yet invaded Ukraine.

    Biden knew the stakes, actions speak louder than words. Had Putin not acted, he would be admitting defeat. Biden appears as a knight in shinning armor but he leveraged war. How easily the people are fooled when they don't understand the politics behind the scenes.

    Instead of working to stop the war between Russia and Ukraine, the US and the world are funding it and perpetuating it, ensuring a long drawn out campaign, that only ends in the total destruction of Ukraine, and enormous loss of life. We pretend we are helping, while we are leading them to destruction and death. We don’t see anyone from the Biden administration on the news talking about using the Ukrainians as cannon fodder for our foreign policy, but that is exactly what is happening. And millions of Americans are cheering the Ukrainians on out of sheer ignorance.

    “Fact Sheet on U.S. Security Assistance for Ukraine
    March 16, 2022
    • Statements and Releases

    President Biden today announced an additional $800 million in security assistance to Ukraine, bringing the total U.S. security assistance committed to Ukraine to $1 billion in just the past week, and a total of $2 billion since the start of the Biden Administration. The assistance will take the form of direct transfers of equipment from the Department of Defense to the Ukrainian military to help them defend their country against Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified invasion.

    The new $800 million assistance package includes:

    800 Stinger anti-aircraft systems;
    2,000 Javelin, 1,000 light anti-armor weapons, and 6,000 AT-4 anti-armor systems;
    100 Tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems;
    100 grenade launchers, 5,000 rifles, 1,000 pistols, 400 machine guns, and 400 shotguns;
    Over 20 million rounds of small arms ammunition and grenade launcher and mortar rounds;
    25,000 sets of body armor; and
    25,000 helmets.

    In addition to the weapons listed above, previous United States assistance committed to Ukraine includes:

    Over 600 Stinger anti-aircraft systems;
    Approximately 2,600 Javelin anti-armor systems;
    Five Mi-17 helicopters;
    Three patrol boats;
    Four counter-artillery and counter-unmanned aerial system tracking radars;
    Four counter-mortar radar systems;
    200 grenade launchers and ammunition;
    200 shotguns and 200 machine guns;
    Nearly 40 million rounds of small arms ammunition and over 1 million grenade, mortar, and artillery rounds;
    70 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) and other vehicles;
    Secure communications, electronic warfare detection systems, body armor, helmets, and other tactical gear;
    Military medical equipment to support treatment and combat evacuation;
    Explosive ordnance disposal and demining equipment; and
    Satellite imagery and analysis capability.

    In addition to the U.S.-produced short-range air defense systems the Ukrainians have been using to great effect, the United States has also identified and is helping the Ukrainians acquire additional, longer-range systems on which Ukraine’s forces are already trained, as well as additional munitions for those systems.

    The United States continues to expedite the authorization and facilitation of additional assistance to Ukraine from our Allies. At least 30 countries have provided security assistance to Ukraine since the Russian invasion began. In 2022, the Department of State authorized third-party transfers of defensive equipment from more than 14 countries, a number that continues to grow as Allies and Partners increase support to Ukraine”.

    “US aid to Ukraine could hit $53B: Congress is poised to approve more than $40 billion in emergency funding to support Ukraine, an amount nearly three times greater than what the U.S. has already committed in military, humanitarian and other assistance to beat back Russia's invasion.

    Along with the $13.6 billion passed in March, the combined $53.7 billion is about 81% of Russia’s 2021 defense budget.

    It’s more than one-quarter the size of Ukraine’s pre-war economy”.

    Not only did the war in Ukraine end the peoples uprisings around the globe, faced with the threat of imminent nuclear war, it will assist in leading millions to starvation and death. Ukraine is known as the bread basket of the world. It’s not just Ukraine’s wheat that is removed from circulation but Russia’s too, as the world severs business ties and sanctions kick in.

    “The most important sector in Ukraine's economy is agriculture. Dubbed Europe's bread basket, the country is the world's biggest exporter of wheat due to its vast swathes of fertile soil that make up about a third of all arable land in Europe”.

    “In Russia, the world’s top wheat producer, exports are being interrupted as international companies abandon long-standing business ties and extricate themselves from the country amid massive Western sanctions”.

    Biden's new sanctions on Russia could hit grain, fertilizer, seafood and luxury goods: President Joe Biden on Friday announced that the United States and allies would revoke Russia's 'most-favored nation' trade status”.

    “Russia and Ukraine are responsible for more than a quarter of global wheat exports and for around 80% of the world’s supply of sunflower oil. Russia — along with ally, Belarus — is also a huge source of fertiliser, accounting for around 15% globally”.

    “Russia is the world's top wheat exporter and the largest producer after China and India. And Ukraine is one of the top five wheat exporters worldwide”.

    While the middle east faces starvation due to the wheat crisis, we are asking them to take sides. If they side against Russia it could mean starvation.

    “Russia, Ukraine: Whose side are Middle Eastern countries really on?: At first, it seemed they couldn't decide whose side they were on. Earlier this week, a number of Middle Eastern nations, who are traditionally friendly with the United States and the European Union, didn't want to immediately or overtly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

    But over the past few days this has changed. After initially appearing reluctant to join a United Nations resolution condemning the invasion and calling on Russia to withdraw all forces from Ukraine, almost all countries in the Middle East signed the resolution on Wednesday.

    Of 193 UN member countries, 141 voted to support the motion. Another 35 nations abstained. Only five voted against the resolution”.

    “The Middle East is facing severe food shortages due to the war in Ukraine, which could spill into fresh conflict and uprisings, warns the UN’s World Food Program (WFP). Much of the region relies on imported grains – especially wheat – to prevent starvation, and experts are saying if Russia’s offensive continues, it will cause widespread death in many other countries”.

    “50 million people will face starvation in the coming months due to the war in Ukraine: Tens of millions of people on the planet will face it hunger in the coming months because of the war in Ukraine”.

    “Speaking after the G7 summit in Germany, Ms Burbok said up to 50 million people, especially in Africa and the Middle East, would face hunger in the coming months”.

    “Drought and soaring food prices from Ukraine war leave millions in Africa starving: the United Nations reported that hundreds of thousands children could die in Somalia by the end of the summer.

    Russia's February invasion of Ukraine disrupted shipments from the countries, which the report notes supply 90% of the wheat in East Africa”.

    “A food insecurity expert predicts that there's only 10 weeks of wheat supplies left in the world as Russian invasion disrupts production”.

    At a time when the vulnerable are facing mass starvation and death food programmes are to cut funding.

    “Soaring inflation drives cuts to hunger-relief programmes: A dearth of funding coupled with a surge in inflation is forcing hunger-relief programmes across the globe to cut back on services just as the world’s poorest need it most, creating a situation that will erode human welfare and possibly plant the seeds of political instability”.

    In order to ease gas prices Biden has pledged to increase production of ethanol, a biofuel made from corn. 40% of corn production in the US is used for ethanol. At a time when the world faces imminent starvation, President Biden wants to increase the already downsized food production, and put corn into gas instead of feeding the hungry. In other words, we will use up crops that could have been food instead, and use it do fill our SUV’s while millions starve to death. Is this the price of the climate agenda?

    “Biden to allow more ethanol in effort to ease gas prices”.

    “Approximately 40% of the maize production in the United States is converted into ethanol”.

    “Corn Used to Create US Biofuel is Enough to Feed 412 Million People for a Year”.

    While our world faces drought conditions, food insecurity, and water scarcity, we use up our fresh water for fuel. A real kicker is that rising ethanol production will cause the price of food to rise even higher in an already stressed economy, exacerbating the threat of financial collapse and starvation.

    “Life cycle studies show that corn ethanol ranges from barely better than petroleum fuels to significantly worse, especially if you take into account land and water use issues, increased deforestation, and increased fertilizer use.

    Corn ethanol contributes to rises in food prices because of competition for arable land to grow food. With more corn for biofuels taking up that space, the price of grains and other agricultural products increases.

    For many in the developing world, rising prices mean they don’t eat. People in poor countries, especially in import-heavy sub-Saharan Africa, feel the impact of rising food prices far worse than in developed countries. This is because they spend so much more of their income on food….Poor people do not have that luxury. As the UN Reported (in October), 26 countries, mainly in sub-Saharan Africa, are still at extreme risk of hunger, with biofuels playing a significant role in exacerbating the problem”.

    Global Food Prices Soaring As Demand For Biofuels Continues To Climb: As many of the world's governments continue pushing to a greener future, the energy transition is colliding with another challenge facing the world as it struggles to emerge from the pandemic: skyrocketing food prices.

    Many energy companies plan to increase their biofuel capacity by 2030, mainly using crops like corn and soybean oil as a major feedstock.

    But such a move is driving price inflation for a host of commodities and vegetable oils, including palm oil, canola and soybean oil. Meanwhile, corn, oil, copper, and gasoline futures prices have all doubled from a year ago while lumber has more than tripled.

    Simply put, accelerating demand for renewable biodiesel fuels is directly responsible for a worrying commodity price inflation”.

    “JPMorgan Chase & Co estimates that under Biden's Climate Plan, U.S. production capacity for renewable diesel will jump almost sixfold by the end of 2024”.

    Another aspect to adding higher concentrations of ethanol to our gas supplies is the effect on vehicles. Gasoline with higher ethanol concentrations absorbs more water, leading to clogged fuel lines. It also makes an engine burn hotter, and can burn out engine valves, especially in vehicles older than 2001. When we think of the people who work in America’s labor intensive jobs for minimum wage, the essential backbone of our food and manufacturing production, these people are not driving new vehicles. The prospect of these workers suddenly being without transportation to and from work, and completely unable to afford a new vehicle, is quite scary. This could force millions of vehicles off the road, compel people to migrate into more condensed urban areas with public transportation, and further cripple supply chain issues as people quit jobs they can’t get to. This also seems to fit very well with the Great Reset agenda of ending legacy systems of personal ownership, and moving people into urban areas with a more controlled and monitored environment.

    Only days after the start of the Ukraine war, while the world was caught up in the fear of nuclear annihilation, Biden made another strategic move in ending our legacy systems.

    “Biden signs order on cryptocurrency as its use explodes: President Joe Biden has signed an executive order on government oversight of cryptocurrency that urges the Federal Reserve to explore whether the central bank should create its own digital currency”.

    Earlier I mentioned the summary of terrorism bulletin put forth by the Biden administration, with their new definitions of terrorism to include those who spread false information online, conspiracy theories, or those who undermine public trust in government.

    The next stages are to put these new ideas into law. Biden made his first attempt with the “Disinformation Governance board”. Keep in mind in the bulletin disinformation is now considered as terrorism, and a national security threat, as stated in their own words.

    “Joe Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’: The Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced this week that it has launched what is being dubbed a Disinformation Governance Board to combat “misinformation.”

    “Disinformation Governance Board, the so-called ‘Ministry of Truth,’ paused as Nina Jankowicz resigns: Federal and state agencies treat disinformation as a national security threat”.

    The effort was put on pause, but is still in the works. This isn’t the only legislation being pushed through. The next piece of legislation would be the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

    “GOP says domestic terrorism prevention bill latest push to expand the surveillance state: The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act is the latest iteration of a Democratic push to enlarge the federal government's surveillance powers, according to Republican naysayers”.

    “The House recently passed the bill along party lines”.

    “As for budget, the bill specifies that the agencies appropriate “such sums as may be necessary,” essentially a blank check”.

    “The GOP leadership advised members to vote against the bill because it “would create unnecessary and duplicative domestic terrorism offices” and “these agencies already have the necessary authorities to investigate, prosecute, and interrupt legitimate domestic terrorists.”

    “By diverting resources that could be used to actually combat domestic terrorism mandating investigation into the armed services and law enforcement, this bill further weaponizes and emboldens the DOJ to target Americans’ First Amendment rights to go after those who they see as political threats,” the party leadership said in an email”.

    “AN ACT: To authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism”.

    As if this weren’t enough the WHO is moving full speed ahead with the “WHO Pandemic Treaty”. With a call for global surveillance, curbing disinformation, and International vaccine passports. They are laying the foundation for this new world vision bit by bit.

    “Zero draft report of the Working Group on Strengthening WHO Preparedness and Response to Health Emergencies to the Seventy-fifth World Health Assembly”.

    Only months into office Biden Launches an Artificial Intelligence Task force.

    “The Biden Administration Launches the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource Task Force: Today, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced the newly formed National Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research Resource Task Force which will write the road map for expanding access to critical resources and educational tools that will spur AI innovation and economic prosperity nationwide”.

    “The US Senate approved the investment of $250 billion for scientific endeavors ranging from AI to quantum communications”.

    Artificial Intelligence and the True Objective

    In the earlier sections, I covered digital transition. There is a darker side that I believe deserves attention. In many ways the last laugh is on the ones who are pursuing artificial intelligence for power, going so far as to alter the human genome, removing freedom, privacy and individuality. They may or may not be aware of it, but the ultimate goal of the people who are pushing this technology is not the betterment of mankind but the elimination of it.

    These people view humans as lower life forms, with low intelligence. They see artificial intelligence as superior, to the degree that they believe it will become a new life form all of it’s own once we create it, and in the end we will be replaced.

    You only need to listen closely and pay attention to what they say, this is not some hidden secret agenda, they are open about it, and give public talks describing their digital aspirations. Those who envision this new world with a cult like fervor, depend on the greed of the powerful to implement it. So far the ball is rolling at full speed in their desired direction.

    Since the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs there has never been a greater threat to life as we know it.

    Juergen Schmidhuber, the Father of AI describes his vision for the future in this Ted Talk, it is a future where humans are replaced by AI, and then that AI spreads through the universe. The scariest part is that his vision is being fast tracked as we speak.

    TEDx Talks, Juergen Schmidhuber, known as the father of AI:

    “At the moment almost all research in AI is very human centric, it’s all about making human lives longer, healthier, and easier, and making humans more addicted to their smart phones. But in the long run AI’s are going to, especially the smart ones are going to set themselves their own goals. I have no doubt in my mind they are going to become much smarter than we are, and what are they going to do? Of course, they are going to realize what we have realized a long time ago namely, that most of the resources in the solar system or in general are not in our little biosphere. They are out there in space. So of course they are going to emigrate. And of course they are going to use trillions of robot fabricating factories to expand in the form of a growing AI bubble which within a few hundred thousand years is going to cover the entire galaxy by senders and receivers such that AI’s can travel the way they are already traveling in my lab by radio from sender to receiver. Wireless.

    So, what we are witnessing now is much more than an industrial revolution, this is something that transcends humankind, and even life itself.

    The last time something so important has happened was maybe 3.5 billion years ago when life was invented. A new type of life is going to emerge from our little planet. It’s going to colonize and transform the entire universe.

    The universe is still young it’s only 13.8 billion years old. It’s going to become much older than that, many times older, so there’s plenty of time to reach all of it or all of the visible parts. Totally within the limits of light speed and physics.

    A new type of life is going to make the universe intelligent. Now of course we are not going to remain the crown of creation, of course not. But there is still beauty in seeing yourself as part of the grander process that leads the cosmos from low complexity towards higher complexity. It’s a privilege to live at a time where we can witness the beginnings of that, and where we can contribute something to that.

    Thank you for your patience.”

    Lately Elon Musk has reached rock star status becoming what seems like an ambassador of freedom and truth in his supposed bid to purchase Twitter. He appeals to the masses as being altruistic, and contributing to the world. If we look at his actions, they tell of a person who is shaping and molding the world for corporate control and merging humans with AI, and removing self-determination and individuality. Gaining the trust of the people is the most important step, certainly it is worth the 44 billion dollar investment, when you will gain the world.

    As his then girlfriend Grimes said in the lyrics of a song titled “We appreciate power”, “What will it take to make you capitulate?”.

    Elon brought attention to Starlink when he donated to Ukraine. But his starlink isn’t just for the purpose of helping everyone on the globe have access to high speed internet. This is the infrastructure necessary for merging man with machine, there must be global connection of the highest quality.

    “Starlink, Elon Musk's initiative to bring the Internet to every place on Earth, is gaining momentum”.

    “The major purpose of Neuralink according to Elon musk is to develop ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces for connecting humans to computers”.

    If his then girlfriends AI song is any indication of his true intentions, we are in some trouble.

    Grimes Lyrics
    "We Appreciate Power"

    “What will it take to make you capitulate?
    We appreciate power
    We appreciate power
    Elevate the human race, putting makeup on my face”

    “Simulation, give me something good
    God's creation, so misunderstood
    Pray to the divinity, the keeper of the key
    One day everyone will believe”

    “What will it take to make you capitulate?
    We appreciate power
    We appreciate power
    When will the state agree to cooperate?”

    “People like to say that we're insane
    But AI will reward us when it reigns
    Pledge allegiance to the world's most powerful computer
    Simulation - it's the future”

    “And if you long to never die
    Baby, plug in, upload your mind
    Come on, you're not even alive
    If you're not backed up on a drive
    And if you long to never die
    Baby, plug in, upload your mind
    Come on, you're not even alive
    If you're not backed up, backed up on a drive”

    “We appreciate power”

    “Neanderthal to human being
    Evolution, kill the gene
    Biology is superficial
    Intelligence is artificial
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    Grimes and Musk named one of their children “X A.I. Archangel,” or “X”– “in May 2020”.

    “Artificial intelligence and machine learning will create computers so sophisticated and godlike that humans will need to implant “neural laces” in their brains to keep up, Musk said in a tech conference last year”.

    “Elon Musk: Humanity Is a Kind of 'Biological Boot Loader' for AI:”

    “It seemed to me some time ago that you could sort of think of humanity as a biological boot loader for digital super intelligence. For those who don’t know what a boot loader is, it’s a very tiny piece of code without which the computer cannot start. But it's sort of like the minimal bit of code necessary for a computer to start. Like you couldn't evolve silicon circuits—there needed to be biology to get there”.

    “I think generally, people underestimate the capability of AI. They sort of think like, it's a smart human. But it's, it's really much—it's going to be much more than that. It’ll be much smarter than the smartest human”.

    “the biggest mistake that I see artificial intelligence researchers making is assuming that they're intelligent. Yeah they're not, compared to AI. And so like, a lot of them cannot imagine something smarter than themselves, but AI will be vastly smarter—vastly”.

    “you know, the old saying, if you can't beat them, join them. You know, that's what Neuralink is about”.

    “I really think that there should be other companies like Neuralink, essentially, to create a high bandwidth interface to the brain. Because right now, we are already a cyborg. People don’t realize we are already a cyborg”.

    “Elon Musk wants to hook your brain directly up to computers: The Tesla and SpaceX founder announced a goal of implanting chips into human brains as early as next year to create direct human connections to computers”.

    “describing a campaign to create "symbiosis with artificial intelligence."

    “Musk repeated Tuesday night that one of the goals of Neuralink was to treat brain disorders, saying, "We can solve that with a chip."

    But he went on to say that it also sought to help you "preserve and enhance your own brain" and to "create a well-aligned future."

    “Musk said Tuesday, will require finding a way for the brain to "merge" with AI, most likely through tiny wireless chips implanted in the brain through a 2-millimeter incision to create what he called "some sort of symbiosis with artificial intelligence," with a goal of no less than securing "humanity's future as a civilization relative to AI."

    “The biggest technical hurdle is bandwidth, Musk said, meaning the tools humans use to interface with computers, like current hardware systems and smartphones”.

    “The ultimate hope is for "some sort of symbiosis with artificial intelligence," which he said would take root "at the civilizational scale."

    "With a high-bandwidth brain interface, I think we can have the option of merging with AI," he said”.

    “Jack: I love Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing we have to a global consciousness”.

    “In principle, I don’t believe anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company. Solving for the problem of it being a company however, Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness”.

    Elon Musk: “let us secure the future, secure the future of consciousness, such that life of the lights of consciousness is not extinguished”.

    “Elon Musk: Even some of the best AI software engineers in the world don’t realize how advanced Tesla AI has become”.

    Yuval Noah Harari: “I want to talk to you today about the future of our species, and really the future of life. We are probably one of the last generations of homo sapiens. Within a century or two earth will be dominated by entities that are more different from us than we are different from neanderthals or from chimpanzees. Because in the coming generations we will learn how to engineer bodies, and brains, and minds. These will be the main products of the economy, of the 21st century economy, not textiles vehicles and weapons, but bodies and brains and minds.

    Now how exactly will future masters of the planet look like? This will be decided by the people who own the data. Those who control the data, control the future not just of humanity, but the future of life itself.

    Why is data so important? It’s important because we have reached the point when we can hack not just computers, we can hack human beings and other organisms.

    What do you need in order to hack the human being? You need two things, you need a lot of computing power, and you need a lot of data, especially biometric data. Not data about what I buy or where I go, but data about what is happening inside my body, and inside my brain. Until today nobody had the necessary computing power and necessary data to hack humanity”.

    “Advances in computer science, and especially the rising of machine learning and AI are giving us the necessary computing power”.

    “I think the biggest question in maybe in economics and politics of the coming decades will be what to do with all these useless people?

    The problem is more boredom and how what to do with them and how will they find some sense of meaning in life when they are basically meaningless, worthless?

    My best guess, at present is a combination of drugs and computer games as a solution for most. It’s already happening. Under different titles, different headings, you see more and more people spending more and more time or solving their inner problems with the drugs and computer games, both legal drugs and illegal drugs.

    You look at Japan today, Japan is maybe 20 years ahead of the world in everything. And you see all these new social phenomena of people having relationships with virtual; virtual spouses and you have people who never leave the house and just live through computers”.

    “What we are talking about now is like a second Industrial Revolution but the product this time will not be textiles or machines or vehicles or even weapons. The product this time will be humans, themselves.

    We are basically learning to produce bodies and minds. Bodies and minds are going to visit, I think the two main products of the next wave of all these changes.

    That is is optional. Again, and if you think about it from the viewpoint of the poor, it looks terrible, because throughout history, death was the great equalizer. The big consolation of the poor throughout history was that, “OK, these rich people they have it good but they’re going to die, just like me.”

    But think about the world, say in 50 years, 100 years, where the poor people continue to die but the rich people, in addition to all the other things they get, they also get an exemption from death.

    Once you really solve a problem like direct brain-computer interface; when brains and computers can interact directly; for example – to take just one example – that’s it, that’s the end of history; that’s the end of biology, as we know it. Nobody has a clue when what will happen, once you solve this.

    If life can basically break out of the organic realm into the vastness of the inorganic realm, you cannot even begin to imagine what the consequences will be, because your imagination at present is organic.

    So if there is a point of singularity, as it’s often referred to, by definition, we have no way of even starting to imagine what’s happening beyond that. Looking before the point of singularity just as a trend, it is gathering pace”.

    “Covid is critical because this is what convinces people to accept legitimize, total biometric surveillance”.

    “Klaus Schwab Sees Everyone Microchipped in Next 10 Years: When Klaus Schwab, the leader of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, talks about fusing the physical, digital, and biological world, he is also talking about microchipping everyone. First, microchips will be implanted in our clothes and eventually, our brains or skin.

    Certainly, in the next ten years, everyone will be implanted with chips, he says. It will enable direct communication between our brain and the digital world”.

    “What we see is a kind of fusion of the physical, digital & biological world”.

    “European Chips Act: The European Chips Act will bolster Europe’s competitiveness and resilience in semiconductor technologies and applications, and help achieve both the digital and green transition. It will do this by strengthening Europe’s technological leadership in the field”.

    People don’t even seem to realize they are being manipulated and shaped, herded into a desired direction. These “influencers” are simply sowing the seeds of transition. While the world fights about cryptocurrency and bitcoin, it’s as though they haven't stopped to think they were herded into that fight, as part of the transition to make people think it is what they themselves wanted. They speak of eliminating the middle man, which we call government. We are told this will bring the cure, and end to our troubles. What will we do when the middle man is eliminated, and the corporations no longer operate in the shadows, and become the government themselves?

    “Nick Adams: Politicians are the problem, not billionaires like Elon Musk!”. (43.1K likes)

    “Elon Musk, Cathie Wood and Jack Dorsey Unanimously Agree on Crypto’s Main Mission: The Tesla founder said he hopes cryptocurrencies can make money more efficient to its core, so that there will be less government interference, which Musk called “error.” According to the billionaire, cryptocurrencies will benefit and empower people, increasing the power of individuals over the government.

    Musk also stated that the government is just a big corporation, so it is strange, in his view, that people hate corporations and praises state power. The Tesla and SpaceX founder believes that anyone who does not like corporations must also hate the government”.

    Cathie Wood: “The famous investment manager also expressed hope that in the future there will be a deep convergence between crypto and AI, which will increase the networking effect of cryptocurrencies and change the world in ways we cannot imagine”.

    Elon Musk makes claims that crypto currencies will empower the people over their governments. He knows this is a lie. Crypto currencies only really differ from modern day digital banking practices by the use of a block chain record. Today, I can withdraw cash from the bank and use it to buy something in person. With a cryptocurrency, even those transactions would be recorded in perpetuity. When regulations are expanded and all crypto transactions are taxed, you will even -pay taxes at a yard sale. And the government and companies associated with the block chain record will have all that information at their disposal. This does not empower the people, it empowers the corporations and big government.

    “Use of the word “billionaire” as a pejorative is morally wrong & dumb”.

    (Twitter poll by Elon Musk, 145.8K likes, 3,351,394 votes)
    “Who do you trust less? Real question.

    While working to enslave us all, Elon Musk says he is giving us our freedom back. If we have surrendered what we consider as our freedom to one social media platform we are surely doomed. Let us hope that the people of the world stand up while they still can and prevent this terrible future from coming into existence, and to stop the ongoing atrocities.

    These AI masterminds are playing on the greed of world leader’s desire for control of the world. For so long, world leaders have worked to shape humanity and the future, this is neither secret nor conspiracy. It only takes a few hours of investigating and sifting through documents to see the reality. The goal has always been controlling population growth, and herding humanity into a desired direction. With the advent of recent technology, leaders of the world, both corporate and government, finally see the possibility of total implementation within their sights. While they work to cull populations, and bend the knee of humanity at their feet, they aren’t even aware that they are being used by the people who are the AI masterminds. They don’t realize that they themselves are set for extermination. The ultimate design is to eliminate humanity altogether, and create a new form of life. These people see human beings as inferior life forms, with inferior intelligence. They envision a world where humans play the role of god creating new life and then allow themselves to be completely eliminated.

    They are simply using the greed of the powerful to get the ball rolling, to begin the end of humanity as we know it. The fourth industrial revolution may very well be an extremely short one.

    Further Study on Sodium Benzoate

    Sodium Benzoate

    Sodium Benzoate, a common ingredient used in soda as a preservative to intensify the flavor, and acidity, is also used to treat psychiatric disorders, it is a carcinogen, and causes infertility. If you ingest it and take vitamin C it produces benzene a known carcinogen. Not only that some sodas, contain both sodium benzoate and citric acid, can turn into benzine, especially when exposed to light, heat, or are stored for long periods of time.

    One of the greatest issues with this compound sodium benzoate is that it’s included in such a wide range of products. It’s a major ingredient in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, food and beverage industry. The FDA considers it as safe.

    “There is no evidence in the available information to show that benzoic acid and sodium benzoate as food ingredients constitute a hazard to the general public when used at levels that are now current or that might reasonably be expected in future”.

    When Sodium Benzoate is combined with vitamin C it becomes benzene, there are no warning labels on your products advising against the use or consumption of vitamin C if you use their products. I find it hard to believe that very many people would consent to using a product if they knew it would turn into a known carcinogen like benzene inside of their body.

    In rat studies it was found to have negative affects on fertility:

    “Ascorbic acid and sodium benzoate synergistically aggravates testicular dysfunction in adult Wistar rats: “The effect of the concomitant use of sodium benzoate (NaB) and ascorbic acid on human health remains controversial. Therefore, the current study is designed to investigate the effect of NaB and ascorbic acid on the testicular function of adult Wistar rats.

    Treatment with NaB significantly altered the cytoarchitecture of testicular tissue, sperm quality, testicular endocrine function and oxidative stress status without any alteration in body weight gain compared to control. In addition, treatment with NaB+ ascorbic acid exacerbated testicular tissue disruption, impaired sperm quality and testicular endocrine impairment with significant reduction in oxidative stress and unaltered body weight gain when compared with NaB-treated group. Conclusion: This study suggests that ascorbic acid and NaB synergistically aggravates testicular dysfunction. This is independent of oxidative stress status”.

    “Dose-dependent reproductive toxicity of sodium benzoate in male rats: Inflammation, oxidative stress and apoptosis: “Our results demonstrate that SB as low as 1 mg/Kg BW/day for 90 days induces significant changes in sperm parameters, plasma levels of sex hormones and testes’ architecture in male rats. SB induces mitochondrial damage, inflammation and oxidative stress in the testes resulting in apoptosis and cell damage. The no-observed-adverse-effect level of SB on the reproductive system is determined to be less than 1 mg/kg BW/day. Thus, the present study highlights the risks associated with long-term”.

    Sodium benzoate is used to treat psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, psychosis, and dementia. Yet at the same time studies show that it also induces anxiety.

    “Sodium benzoate, a food preservative, induces anxiety and motor impairment in rats: The performance of the NaB-treated rats was impaired in the elevated plus maze, an indicator of anxiety. Their riding time in fixed and accelerating speed rotarods was decreased, indicating motor impairment”.

    “Several studies have shown the affect on food additives such as how sodium benzoate could initiate and maintain a chronic state of low-grade inflammation in obese people. It was also shown to lower leptin levels. “Decreased leptin release during the consumption of nutrition-derived food additives could decrease the amount of circulating leptin to which the central nervous system is exposed and may therefore contribute to an obesogenic environment”.

    Leptin is a hormone that controls hunger, if your levels are low it triggers you to eat more. But interestingly leptin levels also control fertility.

    “Leptin is now considered an important signalling molecule of the reproductive system, as it regulates the production of gonadotrophins, the blastocyst formation and implantation, the normal placentation, as well as the foeto‐placental communication. Leptin is a peptide hormone secreted mainly by adipose tissue, and the placenta is the second leptin‐producing tissue in humans. Placental leptin is an important cytokine which regulates placental functions in an autocrine or paracrine manner. Leptin seems to play a crucial role during the first stages of pregnancy as it modulates critical processes such as proliferation, protein synthesis, invasion and apoptosis in placental cells. Furthermore, deregulation of leptin levels has been correlated with the pathogenesis of various disorders associated with reproduction and gestation, including polycystic ovary syndrome, recurrent miscarriage, gestational diabetes mellitus, pre‐eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction”.

    “Sodium benzoate, a common preservative, inhibits growth, shortens lifespan, induces premature aging, and accelerates neurodegeneration:

    Sodium benzoate is one of the most commonly used preservatives in the food industry. Although
    the compound is recognized as safe by the FDA, the effects of sodium benzoate on human health
    have been of interest to both the public and the scientific community.

    The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) is an ideal model organism to study the health effects of sodium benzoate because of its simplicity and its well established genetic toolkit.

    In this study, I found that sodium benzoate restricts C. elegans growth, shortens its lifespan, induces premature aging, and accelerates neurodegeneration. Sodium benzoate functions in parallel with the
    insulin/IGF-1 pathway to decrease lifespan. Using an Alzheimer’s disease model that expresses
    human beta amyloid peptides, sodium benzoate was revealed to also significantly accelerate neurodegeneration. Sodium benzoate induced age-pigments in young worms through accumulating age-pigments in lysosome-related organelles (LROs), contributing to premature aging and neurodegeneration.

    Using GFP marker strains and quantitative RT-PCR assays, I uncovered the role of sodium benzoate in suppressing the irg-1 innate immunity gene expression. The compromised innate immunity response is another underlying mechanism for the phenotypes described above. Overall, these results reveal the long term detrimental effects of sodium benzoate on animal health and it may have similar consequences on human health”.

    “Sodium benzoate is a preservative that promotes cancer and kills healthy cells: (NaturalNews) Organic consumers and nutritionists may already know, but the rest of the general population does not know about sodium benzoate. It has the ability to deprive the cells of oxygen, break down the immune system and cause cancer.

    This killer is flying under consumer radar with its user friendly tag line, "as a preservative." This silent cell choker has found its way into thousands of products, even foods that are labeled as all natural. But don't be fooled. While benzoic acid is found naturally in low levels in many fruits, the sodium benzoate listed on a product's label is synthesized in a lab.

    Derived from a reaction of benzoic acid with sodium hydroxide, sodium benzoate is actually the sodium salt of benzoic acid. Sodium benzoate is a known carcinogenic additive which, when eaten or applied to the skin, gets transported to the liver, where it is supposed to be filtered, and expelled in urine, but the damage gets done before that process is completed.

    Sodium benzoate chokes out your body's nutrients at the DNA cellular level by depriving mitochondria cells of oxygen, sometimes completely shutting them down. Just as humans need oxygen to breathe, cells need oxygen to function properly and to fight off infection, including cancer.

    The FDA says it's safe because the amount used to preserve foods is very low, but don't ever combine it with vitamin C or E, as this causes benzene to be formed. This is dangerous. Benzene is a known carcinogen, which means it causes cancer”.

    “The Effects of Citric Acid and Sodium Benzoate on Liver and Kidney Tissue: Food preservatives used for prolonging shelf life of prepared foods is the leading chemical which is exposed by
    humans every day. That some food preservatives could be toxic on the living was reported in previous studies.

    In our study, both BS and CA were seen to cause degenerative changes in tissues. In the studies in rats, CA administered via peroral route [29] and [32] and intraperitoneally [32, 33] were seen to cause necrotic changes in liver and kidney. SB administered via peroral route was reported to cause dose dependent hepatic degeneration in rats [3] and [42]. These results are similar
    to those of previous studies.

    In our study, both preservtaives were detected to lead to degenerative changes both in hepatic and renal tissues as the result of light micrsocopic and electron micrsocopic examinations.

    On electron microscopic examinations, degeneration and necrotic changes were observed in hepatic and renal tissues both in SB and CA group. Degenerative changes in hepatic tissues included injury in hepatocyte membrane, crista loss in mitochondria, degradation in nuclear membrane; membrane degeneration, basal membrane injury and degenerative changes in renal tissue included crista loss in mitochondria, membrane degeneration, injury in basal membrane and nuclei. These results are similar to those of previous studies conducted with SB [3] and CA [32] and [33].
    In the study, serum, hepatic and renal tissue TSA levels were analysed together with degenerative changes resulted from SB and CA administered through gavage.

    Beside degenerative changes observed in the cells, serum and tissue TSA amounts were observed to decrease significantly as the result of short term SB administration (Table 1). This reduction was suggested to be related with disorders in sialic acid biosynthesis developing as the result of SB-related tissue injury. Cell surface sialic acid levels are known to play an important role in cell adhesion. It is
    considered that the reduction in tissue TSA levels could alter cell surface sialization and thereby affect adhesion. Sialic acids which are bounded to complex carbohydrates in cell membrane play important roles in many cellular functions due to this location. They protect particularly cells and macromolecules from enzymatic and immunologic attack [9]. SB-related degenerative changes
    observed in membranes are of great importance with this aspect.

    Sialic acids are accepted as an important marker for diagnosis of many diseases today. Elevations in tissue and serum sialic levels are associated with various cancer types [2], [27], [48] and [49].
    Association between cancer and sialic acid gradually gains importance.

    In our study, TSA level was observed to increase in kidney tissue due to CA administration (Table 1). This elevation in TSA levels was considered to arise from lipid peroxidation and cell membrane degradation. TSA elevation in tissues was reported to be related with lipid peroxidation and could alter the structural integrity of glycoproteins in membranes [15] and [50]. It is suggested
    that glycosaminoglycans (GAG) consisting extracellular matrix significantly increased physiologic levels of plasma GAG as the result of tissue injury [51] and this increase was originated from the injury in hepatic mesenchymal tissue [41].

    In our study, increased sialization in kidney tissue caused by CA is important given the relationship between sialic acid levels and carcinogenesis. In addition, serum TSA concentrations were reported to increase in some liver diseases [37].

    SB and CA were determined to cause degeneration in organels in hepatic and renal tissues and cellular metabolism could be impaired as the result of these degenerations. Integrity of cytoplasm is quite important for maintenance of cellular vital functions. Integrity of cytoplasm is important also for regular functioning of intracellular transport mechanisms. These transport mechanisms are considered to be impaired due to cytoplasmic vacuolization. Structural changes observed in
    nucleus and ER which play an important role in biosynthesis of glucoconjugates could probably lead to impairment in glycolization mechanisms. Potential injuries are likely to affect cell surface sialization as it arises both in transport mechanisms and glycolization mechanisms.

    Integrity of mitochondrial membrane is important for maintanence of vital functions and determination of apoptotic process. So these degenerations in mitochondrial membranes and crista structure could have negatively affect oxidative metabolism and vital balance limits of the cell.

    Food preservatives used for prolonging shelf life of prepared foods is the leading chemical exposed by the humans in daily life. Previous studies have revealed that some food preservatives could be toxic for the living [3], [32], [33], [42], [46] and [47]. these substances had also genotoxic and mutagenic effects [23], [35] and [39].

    However studies investigating the effect of food preservatives on serum and tissue TSA levels were not encountered. Therefore potential effects of SB and CA, the widely used food preservatives in many fields, on TSA were investigated. The elevation in TSA level in renal tissue is important particularly due to CA administration”.

    “Investigating the effect of sodium benzoate on immune cells and microbial populations in the small intestine of murine species.microbial populations in the small intestine:

    Dietary ingredients can influence the mucosal surface morphology and mucosal immunity of the gastrointestinal tract. Additional health concerns and behavioral changes have been attributed to the consumption of foods containing preservatives and additives.

    Sodium benzoate (SB) is a commonly used bacteriostatic in food and beverages. This study investigates the effects of SB on the gut bacteria and mucosal health in the gastrointestinal tract of laboratory mice. There was statistically significant lymphocyte infiltration in response to SB suggesting possible alteration in mucosal immunity of the gut. Sodium benzoate increased the food intake and changed the gut microbial population compared to the controls. Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes decreased while Enterobacter increased in relative abundance. In conclusion, SB consumption may influence gut microbial population and mucosal immunity in murine species. Further studies should be conducted to better understand the mechanisms and long-term effects and SB on the body”.

    “Human gut microbes are susceptible to antimicrobial food additives in vitro:

    The aim of this work was to test the hypothesis that antimicrobial food additives may alter the composition of human gut microbiota by selectively suppressing the growth of susceptible gut microbes.

    Our data show that some human gut microbes are highly susceptible to antimicrobial food additives. We speculate that permanent exposure of human gut microbiota to even low levels of additives may modify the composition and function of gut microbiota and thus influence the host's immune system. Whether the effect of additive-modified gut microbiota on the human immune system could explain, at least in part, the increasing incidence of allergies and autoimmune diseases remains to be shown”.

    Studies have shown that food additives including sodium benzoate can harm gut bacteria, this matters in the context of overall health. Many people who have nutrient and vitamin deficiencies do so because of a lack of gut bacteria, and these deficiencies lead to a host of other ailments.

    I would like to offer a brief description of what sodium benzoate is made from. It has toxic origins, and it’s not surprising that sodium benzoate itself would also be toxic or cause health problems when you look at the evidence.

    Sodium Benzoate can be made from a few different compounds using three different methods. I won’t delve too deep into the process just enough for you to get an idea of what compounds are used. Kind of like knowing how an ingredient is extracted. Sometimes knowing where something comes from matters.

    It can be made in three different ways, but all three ways include neutralizing benzoic acid. In the first method Toluene is oxidized using molecular oxygen, this process is accomplished by utilizing atmospheric pressure separating the benzoic acid.

    The second method combines Chlorine and Toluene which creates a compound called Benzotrichloride, it is refined further to create Sodium Benzoate.

    The third method produces benzoic acid from phthalic anhydride. Phthalic anhydride is a product of oxidization of naphthalene with vanadium pentoxide. Anhydride vapor, and water vapor are placed in a chamber with a catalyst, with high temperatures and yeilds benzoic acid. It is then further refined, and the benzoic acid filtered out.

    The end product in all three methods is granular sodium benzoate.

    Let us take a look at some of the compounds used to produce sodium benzoate.


    In method 1 toluene is used, what is toluene? First it is noteworthy to mention it is listed on the CDC website under the toxic substances portal.

    “Toluene is a clear, colorless liquid with a distinctive smell. Toluene occurs naturally in crude oil and in the tolu tree. It is also produced in the process of making gasoline and other fuels from crude oil and making coke from coal. Toluene is used in making paints, paint thinners, fingernail polish, lacquers, adhesives, and rubber and in some printing and leather tanning processes”.

    “Hazard Summary from the EPA:

    Toluene is added to gasoline, used to produce benzene, and used as a solvent. Exposure to toluene may occur from breathing ambient or indoor air affected by such sources. The central nervous system (CNS) is the primary target organ for toluene toxicity in both humans and animals for acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) exposures. CNS dysfunction and narcosis have been frequently observed in humans acutely exposed to elevated airborne levels of toluene; symptoms include fatigue, sleepiness, headaches, and nausea. CNS depression has been reported to occur in chronic abusers exposed to high levels of toluene. Chronic inhalation exposure of humans to toluene also causes irritation of the upper respiratory tract and eyes, sore throat, dizziness, and headache. Human studies have reported developmental effects, such as CNS dysfunction, attention deficits, and minor craniofacial and limb anomalies, in the children of pregnant women exposed to high levels of toluene or mixed solvents by
    inhalation. EPA has concluded that that there is inadequate information to assess the carcinogenic potential of toluene”.

    “Reproductive and developmental toxicity studies of toluene. II. Effects of inhalation exposure on fertility in rats:

    Male and female Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to toluene vapor at 600 and 2000 ppm for 6 h/day, and effects on their fertility were investigated.

    In conclusion, embryo-fetal toxic effects were apparent in female rats exposed to toluene before and during the early stage of pregnancy. Subacute exposure to a high level (2000 ppm) of toluene vapor elicited mild toxic changes in the kidneys, thymus, and reproductive organs of males. Toxic effects on fertility and reproduction were thus demonstrated not only in females but also in males exposed to toluene vapor in the present study”.


    Now let us look at benzotrichloride, the compound used in the second method for producing sodium benzoate. Remember benzotrichloride is made by combining chloride and toluene.

    “EPA Hazard Summary

    Benzotrichloride is used extensively in the dye industry and as an intermediate in the chemical industry. Acute (short-term) exposure to the vapors of benzotrichloride are highly irritating to the skin and mucous membranes. In mice and rats chronically (long-term) exposed by inhalation, proliferative lesions of the respiratory tract have been observed. Human data on the carcinogenic effects of benzotrichloride are inadequate. Increased incidences of tumors at multiple sites have been observed in female mice treated orally, dermally, and by inhalation. EPA has classified benzotrichloride as a Group B2, probable human carcinogen”.

    “Benzotrichloride is classified as an extremely hazardous substance in the United States as defined in Section 302 of the U.S. Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (42 U.S.C. 11002), and hence its use is subject to a list of reporting requirements by companies or institutions which synthesize, store or use it in large quantities. In 2018, EU member states have approved a European Commission proposal to restrict the use of carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic (CMR) substances in clothing, textiles and footwear. In 2015, the Commission published a preliminary list of 286 CMRs it proposed to restrict. Benzotrichloride was listed in this document as a toxic and carcinogenic compound.[2]

    According to the harmonised classification and labelling (CLP00) approved by the European Union (EU), this substance is toxic if inhaled, causes serious eye damage, may cause cancer, causes skin irritation, is harmful if swallowed, and may cause respiratory irritation”.

    Genotoxic potential was shown in bacteria and mammalian cell system, micronucleus formation occurred in bone marrow cells. Actual cancer incidence increase was clearly observed too: The same study finding bronchitis after long term respiratory use, found that 81% of mice had lung adenomas(8% in control), 27% skin adenomas (0% in control), 11% malignant lymphomas (0% in control).[14] Similar studies also showed significant carcinogenicity.[4] This shows that even though long-term inhalation damages the lungs, it also increases cancer risk, which is a risk needing stricter regulation”.

    TCIchemicals safety data sheet:

    Danger, Hazard statements Harmful if swallowed, May be harmful in contact with skin, Fatal if inhaled
    Causes skin irritation, Causes serious eye irritation, Suspected of causing genetic defects, May cause cancer, Suspected of damaging fertility or the unborn child, Causes damage to organs through, prolonged or repeated exposure : Liver Blood Thyroid gland Respiratory system Kidney May cause respiratory irritation”.

    Phthalic anhydride

    The compound used in the third method:

    “Used in the manufacture of materials such as artificial resins”.

    “Exposure to phthalic anhydride may occur during its use as a chemical intermediate in the plastics industry. The acute (short-term) effects from exposure to phthalic anhydride in humans consists of irritation to the eyes, respiratory tract, and skin, but no permanent injury is observed. Chronic (long-term) effects observed in workers exposed to phthalic anhydride included conjunctivitis, rhinitis, rhinoconjunctivitis, bronchitis, and irritation of the skin and mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. Animal studies indicate that chronic exposure to phthalic anhydride vapor causes congestion, irritation, and injury to lung cells. No studies are available on the reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of phthalic anhydride in humans. EPA has not classified phthalic anhydride for carcinogenicity”.

    Acute Effects:

    Phthalic anhydride is irritating to the eyes, respiratory tract, and the skin in humans, but no permanent
    injury is observed. Since phthalic anhydride has no effect on dry skin, but burns wet skin, it has been
    suggested that the actual irritant is phthalic acid, which is formed on contact with water. (2) suggested that the actual irritant is phthalic acid, which is formed on contact with water. (2) Tests involving acute exposure of rats have shown phthalic anhydride to have moderate acute toxicity. (3)

    Chronic Effects (Noncancer):
    Conjunctivitis, rhinitis, rhinoconjunctivitis, bronchitis, and irritation of the skin and mucous membranes of the respiratory tract have been observed in workers exposed to phthalic anhydride. Other effects observed in workers chronically exposed to phthalic anhydride were occasional bloody sputum, emphysema, lower blood pressure, and minor signs of central nervous system (CNS) excitation. (1,2,9)

    Animals exposed to heated phthalic anhydride experienced congestion, irritation, and injury of lung cells. (2) Hypersensitivity of guinea pigs to phthalic anhydride dust has been reported, with bronchoconstriction, transiently increased respiratory rate, and elevated IgG antibodies observed following an inhalation challenge. (9) Decreased body weight, increased incidence of lung and kidney lymphocytosis, bile duct inflammation, adrenal atrophy, and mineralization of the thalmus were reported in mice exposed to phthalic anhydride in the diet.

    Reproductive/Developmental Effects:

    No studies regarding reproductive or developmental effects in humans were available. Phthalic anhydride was reported to be teratogenic in mice following intraperitoneal injection. (4) Decreased spermatozoa motility time was reported in one study in which male rats were exposed via inhalation.

    Cancer Risk:

    No studies were available on the carcinogenic effects of phthalic anhydride in humans”.

    Remember Phthalic anhydride, is made from two other compounds, naphthalene, and vanadium pentoxide, let’s take a look at those.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    “EPA Naphthalene Hazard Summary:

    Naphthalene is used in the production of phthalic anhydride; it is also used in mothballs. Acute (short-
    term) exposure of humans to naphthalene by inhalation, ingestion, and dermal contact is associated with hemolytic anemia, damage to the liver, and neurological damage. Cataracts have also been reported in workers acutely exposed to naphthalene by inhalation and ingestion. Chronic (long-term) exposure of workers and rodents to naphthalene has been reported to cause cataracts and damage to the retina. Hemolytic anemia has been reported in infants born to mothers who "sniffed" and ingested naphthalene (as mothballs) during pregnancy. Available data are inadequate to establish a causal relationship between exposure to naphthalene and cancer in humans. EPA has classified naphthalene as a Group C, possible human carcinogen”.

    The primary use for naphthalene is in the production of phthalic anhydride. However, o-xylene is replacing naphthalene as the preferred raw material for phthalic anhydride production. (1) Other uses of naphthalene include carbamate insecticides, surface active agents and resins, as a dye intermediate, as a synthetic tanning agent, as a moth repellent, and in miscellaneous organic chemicals.

    Individuals may be exposed to naphthalene through the use of mothballs. (1) Workers may be occupationally exposed to naphthalene during its manufacture and use, especially in coal-tar production, wood preserving, tanning, or ink and dye production. (1) Naphthalene is released to the air from the burning of coal and oil and from the use of mothballs. Coal tar production, wood preserving, and other industries release small amounts.

    Acute exposure of humans to naphthalene by inhalation, ingestion, and dermal contact is associated with hemolytic anemia, damage to the liver, and, in infants, neurological damage. Symptoms of acute exposure include headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malaise, confusion, anemia, jaundice, convulsions, and coma.

    Cataracts have been reported in humans acutely exposed to naphthalene by inhalation and ingestion.
    Cataracts have also been reported in animals following acute oral exposure. Tests involving acute exposure of rats, mice, rabbits, and guinea pigs have demonstrated naphthalene to have moderate to high acute toxicity from ingestion and low to moderate acute toxicity from dermal exposure.

    Chronic Effects (Noncancer):

    Chronic exposure of workers to naphthalene has been reported to cause cataracts and retinal hemorrhage. Chronic inflammation of the lung, chronic nasal inflammation, hyperplasia of the respiratory epithelium in the nose, and metaplasia of the olfactory epithelium were reported in mice chronically exposed to naphthalene via inhalation. Rats, rabbits, and mice chronically exposed to naphthalene via ingestion have developed cataracts and degeneration of the retina. Diarrhea, lethargy, hunched posture, rough coats, decreased body weight, and lesions in the kidneys and thymus were observed in rats and mice chronically exposed via gavage (experimentally placing the chemical in the stomach).

    Reproductive/Developmental Effects:

    Hemolytic anemia has been reported in infants born to mothers who "sniffed" and ingested naphthalene (as mothballs) during pregnancy. The mothers themselves were anemic, but to a lesser extent than the infants. Signs of maternal toxicity (e.g., decreased body weight and lethargy) but no fetal effects were reported in rats and rabbits exposed to naphthalene via gavage. Maternal toxicity (increased mortality and reduced weight gain) and fetotoxicity (reduced number of live pups per litter) were observed in mice exposed via gavage.

    Cancer Risk:

    Workers occupationally exposed to vapors of naphthalene and coal tar developed laryngeal carcinomas or Workers occupationally exposed to vapors of naphthalene and coal tar developed laryngeal carcinomas or neoplasms of the pylorus and cecum. However, this study is inadequate because there were no controls, exposure levels were not determined, and subjects were exposed to complex mixtures containing other demonstrated carcinogens.

    Di-, tri-, and tetramethyl naphthalene contaminants of coal tar were found to be carcinogenic when applied to the skin of mice, but naphthalene alone was not. An increased number of alveolar/bronchiolar adenomas and carcinomas were reported in female mice exposed by inhalation.
    No carcinogenic responses were reported in rats exposed to naphthalene in their diet and by injection.

    EPA has classified naphthalene as a Group C, possible human carcinogen”.

    “Naphthalene Toxicity in Clinical Practice: Naphthalene toxicity usually occurs abruptly and leads to acute hemolysis, methemoglobinemia, renal failure, respiratory depression, and acute brain dysfunction that are difficult to manage. The toxicity is more marked in patients with G6PD deficiency and associated with high morbidity and mortality”.

    Vanadium pentoxide

    “Vanadium is an abundant element with a very wide distribution and is mined in South Africa, Russia, and China. During the smelting of iron ore, a vanadium slag is formed that containvanadium pentoxide, which is used for the production of vanadium metal. Vanadium pentoxide is also produced by solvent extraction from uranium ores and by a salt roast process from boiler residues or residues from elemental phosphate plants. During the burning of fuel oils in boilers and furnaces, vanadium pentoxide is present in the solid residues, soot, boiler scale, and fly ash.

    In inhalation and oral studies in laboratory animals, absorbed vanadium in either pentavalent or tetravalent states is distributed mainly to the bone, liver, kidney, and spleen, and it is also detected in the testes. The main route of vanadium excretion is via the urine. The pattern of vanadium distribution and excretion indicates that there is potential for accumulation and retention of absorbed vanadium, particularly in the bone. There is evidence that tetravalent vanadium has the ability to cross the placental barrier to the fetus”.

    “NTP toxicology and carcinogensis studies of vanadium pentoxide: Under the conditions of this 2-year inhalation study, there was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of vanadium pentoxide in male F344/N rats and equivocal evidence of carcinogenic activity of vanadium pentoxide in female F344/Nrats based on the occurrence of alveolar/bronchiolar neoplasms. There was clear evidence of carcinogenic activity of vanadium pentoxide in male and female B6C3F1 mice based on increased incidences of alveolar/bronchiolar neoplasms”.

    “Inhalative Exposure to Vanadium Pentoxide Causes DNA Damage in Workers: Vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) is used for the production of metal alloys, for the manufacturing of lithium batteries and high-pressure lamps, and for the synthesis of chemicals [International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) 2006]. Its annual production worldwide is in the range of 60,000 tons (IARC 2006; Woolery 1997). Occupational exposure to the oxide occurs at production sites, during processing and refining of vanadium ores and sludges, during manufacturing of vanadium-containing products, in the course of combustion of vanadium-rich fuels, and by handling of catalysts in the chemical industry (Plunkett 1987). Environmental exposure to the metal and its oxides occurs via inhalation in the vicinity of metallurgical plants or through consumption of contaminated foods (Barceloux 1999; IARC 2006). Although foods contain low concentrations, nutrition is the major source of exposure for the general population.


    V2O5 causes oxidation of DNA bases, affects DNA repair, and induces formation of MNs, NPBs, and Nbuds in blood cells, suggesting that the workers are at increased risk for cancer and other diseases that are related to DNA instability”.

    Reprotoxic and genotoxic studies of vanadium pentoxide in male mice: Effects of vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) treatment on reproductive function and testicular DNA in male mice were investigated. These functions were evaluated with fertility rate, implants, resorptions, sperm counts, motility, and morphology. The DNA damage in individual testis cells was analyzed by single-cell gel electrophoresis technique (COMET assay). V2O5 treatment resulted in a decrease in fertility rate, implantations, live fetuses, and fetal weight, and an increase in the number of resorptions/dam. Sperm count, motility, and morphology were impaired with the advancement of treatment. Vanadium treatment induced DNA damage depending on the dose in the testis cells that was expressed and detected as DNA migration in the COMET assay. The distribution of DNA migration among cells, a function of dose, revealed that the majority of cells of treated animals expressed more DNA damage than cells from control animals. It is concluded that vanadium pentoxide was a reprotoxic and genotoxic agent in mice”.

    It’s hard to imagine, but we are taking these toxic compounds, that pollute the environment, cause cancer, harm fertility, and cause death, and we are refining them and putting them in our food, drinks, and every day products. This is only one of those chemicals. The list goes on.

    I do apologize that this is slightly out of date, I finished this last month and so much has happened since then that could have been included. Also that copy and paste function inst quite perfect and there are lots of spaces and broken sentences where there shouldn't be but it would take too long to fix all of that. I just wanted to share this, because I feel the information is important. I hope you are all doing well out there. We are living in crazy times for sure.
