So what now?  Where do we go from here? How do we save ourselves – without a leader because ALL potential leaders at this point are corrupt? How do we stop fearful, tired people who willfully will not think for themselves or take responsibility for their own health from gleefully submitting to lining up and getting a shot that will at worst kill them and at best make them so ill that they will have no quality of life?

How do we stop people from doing the work of the invaders for them by freely and quickly committing suicide? HOW??????


After the last 4 months it has been shown that both sides of the two ruling parts in this country are really the same head of a two faced demon, a hidden, elitist group of aloof, arrogant, black hearted, haughty, high-and-mighty, highfalutin, high-handed, imperious, overweening, predatory, pompous, pretentious, supercilious, superior, uppity, bigheaded, egoistical, prideful, conceited, self-important, stupid, assholes. They have fucked up our earth, our animals, our crops, our water, our air, our healers our medicine, our educational system, and our children and now they have us all lined up like little wooden soldiers ready to fall at the mighty stroke of a needle. 

It defies logic, what is happening right in front of us. It defies sanity, when just the tiniest bit of research should be able to cast enormous doubt on the safety of what is being passed for medicine of any kind. It awakened my deepest gut and heart feelings that there is something terribly, terribly WRONG ! I have that creepy-crawly feeling on the back of my neck and a dropping sensation in the pit of my stomach. I feel like I am screaming at the top of my lungs in a vacuum. It doesn’t matter how hard I scream – no sound comes out. 

It feels like they are hoarders and to clean up their homes they just decided to torch it. I used to think that evil was just the other side of good – opposites – I did not see it as the overwhelming, seething, filth that it is today, now, in 2021. I believed in balance, the great middle way. I still do. However for energies to have gotten this far out of balance before anybody noticed, reminds me of end-stage alcoholism. Everybody is so used to the drunk being a drunk that until he dies, it was never an issue. Well these supercilious assholes that are hell-bent on eliminating what they consider to be lesser life forms, namely us, in any way they can, have to be stopped now, or there will be no us left. 

We are the heart and soul, the empathic, the artists, the musicians, the writers, the creators, of those who walk this earth. We keep love, we keep mercy, we keep peace, alive in our hearts for this place – this earth and all its denizens, and with our ilk passing from this place never to be felt again here, our mother will mourn us to her death. With no heart left to keep her, to love her and hear her melody – our mother will pass. This earth will die, because what mother would want to survive past her children’s life? Not me.

I know this is a discombobulated piece, but I am overwhelmed with knowing we are almost too late, and without a herculean effort to turn this around, it will be too late.

General McInerney:

Hope is NOT a strategy.

March 22nd. 2021

The truth is out there: but pay no attention to the man behind the curtain…

Well, here’s a little commonality that strikes me as hinkey, the last step in the decimation of the human populace is the vaccine which: Must. Be. Voluntary. Must be asked for!  Is that like voluntarily asking for an intervention from ET? Its been said over and over again that before ET will come and help enough people have to ask. Better yet:

One must, if one has even a shred of brain left ask, ‘What the fucking hell is going on here????’

People are lining up for the experimental gene therapy shot. WITHOUT the proper trials, WITH mounting evidence of immense adverse reactions which are being hushed in the mainstream reporting and played down and fact-checked (code word for pay no attention to the man behind the curtain). When you come into contact with the virus and your immune system is stimulated to get rid of the virus and your own body sees that you have the viral proteins in your own cells and organs and your memory antibodies… the mechanism that makes specific long term antibodies against a pathogen ….your adaptive immune system….YOUR OWN IMMUNE SYSTEM IS GOING TO START KILLING YOU. ORGAN FAILURE! ** the condition will initially present as sepsis and organ failure follows! To put this in a readily understood football metaphor listen to this. As clear as it gets! https://thehighwire.com/videos/a-coming-covid-catastrophe/

There is also mounting evidence that three to four months after the second shot, there is going to be a melt down in the systems of those people who blindly went and got both vaccinations, which, IMO is why they are shutting down the UK for the summer, because they KNOW what is about to occur. The real ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE. Seriously. Boris Johnson has been warned that a vaccine war with the EU would put the UK’s recovery at risk, as he admitted that this country would be hit by the third wave spreading through Europe. The prime minister said that previous experience showed that rising infections in France and Italy would soon “wash up on our shores as well” – despite the continued decrease in cases, hospital admissions and deaths across the country. He made the comments as new legislation was published, revealing that foreign holidays would be illegal from Monday until at least 30 June, with police able to issue fines of up to £5,000.

Fear is more powerful than common sense. We have been programmed to believe that doctors are the last word on health. Mostly they are, unless they have been duped too. However, there is a whole contingent, hundreds and hundreds out there that ARE aware of what is going on, and they are yelling at the top of their lungs about it, but no one is hearing them because they have been censored in the lamestream media! If they can’t censure them, then they kill them.

The head of a country was taken out for standing up to this whole script. Tanzanian President Magufuli was ‘suicided’. Since the pandemic was declared in March 2020, Magufuli had downplayed the severity of the virus. At one point, he made fun of the country’s coronavirus testing facilities, saying he had secretly sent samples of papaya and goat and that they came out positive.

These ‘jabs’ can not even be called a vaccination. They are called gene therapy because they are. All animals in previous mRNA vaccines studies died when reintroduced to the virus in the mRNA. This is unethical to do in human trials. The deaths in the animal trials are due to spike proteins. This mRNA injection is not a vaccine. It does not fulfil the legal definition of vaccine. It does however fulfill the definition of a device. https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/classify-your-medical-device/how-determine-if-your-product-medical-device

There may be no way to turn this jab off once you get it. 

The ‘jab’ turns this system on; however, there is no way to turn it off. When do the cells know to stop making this “viral protein”? The cells don’t; therefore, this continues for the duration. In a normal vaccine, the immune system attacks the limited amount of “particles” in the adjuvant to produce antibodies or immune response that the body can recognize at a later time if the individual comes in contact with the same or similar “particle”. https://thewashingtonstandard.com/bombshell-moderna-chief-medical-officer-admits-mrna-alters-dna/

But Wait! There’s more. Once they have effectively put an operating system into your DNA you are trackable. Combine that with the great reset to digital currency you will effectively become a slave of the state, your money coming from the ‘company store’ which can be shut off for any reason, at any time, not the least of which your social profile being out of line with the company policy.

So, are you a sheep and going to line up nicely for your ‘jab’ to get your vaccine passport and a trip straight to hell, or do you have any brain left to question the narrative?

Choices, choices, choices…

Bitch! That’s all this wicked witch does on this blog. Well, after all, it is my blog….

The ‘Normy’ box and the woo field. 

Gotta LOVE, love, love Cliff High for so succinctly describing this!

Cliff High

Some of us were born for the sole purpose of floating in the woo field (born in the woo). We find it very difficult to exist in the Normybox. Working in the real world makes us physically ill, nobody really wants to talk to us about important stuff (woo) and most who try, get lost 5 minutes into a conversation. This tends to help us develop a very strong LOW sense of self. It also makes some of us seriously research our own madness levels. Just to be sure. Once we realize we are sane it tends to make us feel even more disassociated from regular society. 

Like Cliff has just stated in his latest video, the normybox has gotten leaky, extremely leaky. (happy dance) Then there is part of me who feels very let down because I’ve struggled all my life to go unnoticed in the normybox and now they are invading my woo and acting like they are freaking experts. Ahem. I mean, it’s great and all, its going to heal the world when the cycle is complete, however, I’m still on the outside. Sigh. So, yeah, I’m bitchy about it. This whole blog is about how to stick your big toe in the woo field, with simple examples and to quote Arlo:

…27 eight-by-ten color glossy photographs

With circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one

Explaining what each one was…

And I guess this blog is no longer needed. In a way that is good. And seeing as how the Big Fucking Contrived Covid Mess has gotten in the way of things – downright stopped most all things, facts about it were all I have really been able to say for a year in these pages. 

I have been bitchy and mean and angry and sad and urgent – all because of the normybox. 

So here’s my message:

Literally EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING you have heard, read or been told is true. If you can’t WAKE UP and at least consider that, it’s on you. The future happened while you were sleeping. It’s here. End of Story. Get with it or end up in the junk yard rusting into oblivion with the rest of the anachronisms. (noun: a thing belonging or appropriate to a period other than that in which it exists, especially a thing that is conspicuously old-fashioned.) 

Or fight into the future to perhaps help make it into something worth existing for. 

Your choice.

Just THE FACTS, ma’am

Getting Kerry Cassidy and Jay Weidner together in one place is an alchemical recipe for dense, thick truth. These two, tell it like it really is. Not some filtered nambie-pambie diluted bull shit. Not that I am amazed – I know most of this (I’ve been at it for 60 + years) but that they just put it all out there. Flat out. This is a wonderful interview. Take notes. Pay attention. You need to. Trust me.

Once again – PRESS THE BLUE BUTTON – watch on Vimeo.

The Darkness

I feel like I am caught in a nightmare with no way to wake up. SARS-Cov-2 or Covid19, or Covid20, or Covid21 are all out there in the world plus a whole host of others – they are legion. However, if you look at the numbers on world-wide deaths, they have remained the same. What has happened is the shifting of the causes of those deaths – the title on the type of death. That has all been shifted to be Covid. Covid+diabetes, Covid+heart disease, Covid+COPD, Covid+age… you get my drift. Oh! But we have cured the common cold and the common flu, those things no longer exist in the lexicon of medical diagnosis. 

What I have watched in the last 2 years is a shifty, underhanded psychological program going out to the public like a virus, infecting more and more people – even ones that KNOW better! Insidiously finding its way into the subconscious minds of every one on earth that has any connection digitally. This means the media is the viral vector to this mind virus. 

What is alarming is that I find my self slipping, and I KNOW what is going on. I KNOW because I have done over two years of research, in depth research – reading the science journals, the white papers, and listening to those who have written them. The media-vector of disbursal has been so effective, that I have to check my own mind, I found it creeping up on me, this media hyped fear – but I know how to recognize that. 

What is most alarming is the people I know and love that have been overcome by this propaganda psy-ops. Some who know the facts, but are succumbing to the infectious vector of media subliminal programming. I am beginning to see just how powerful the programming is.

Personally, all I can do is hard-look at the facts and understand that I will be mourning them in one way or another. They will be changed. They will be owned, manipulated and forever in the clutches of the dark faction that runs this world. That’s if they live. The evidence points to about a three month period after both vaccines (one and two) are given, when becoming infected by a regular everyday flu, their immune system will be so confused because of the genetic modification of their bodies from the vaccinations which ARE gene therapy (and not a real vaccination) that their bodies will not be able to handle the wild virus and they will literally kill themselves from the inside-out because of an over reaction.  There is also a theory that the body will not recognize a wild strain of flu virus and it will over run the system. This will be because the body will already have the spike protein on every cell in the body. This is the end game. The last death.

In the interim, the psychological manipulation of the hearts and souls and minds of people, especially those I love is so heart wrenching that everyday I mourn. I am watching those that cannot be aware of the ghost in the machine possessing them by deceit and lies, through the back door of their subconscious minds through everyday media. I know, because I have felt it. The reasons for wearing a mask or three, the reasons for lining up and getting gene therapy vaccinations don’t matter. What does matter is that most people do not even realize what has happened to them in their own minds. They do not see that they are being hollowed out inside so the darkness will have a place to come and live. The darkness is insidious. That is the way it works. Until one day it simply owns you and you never noticed, will never know that you are no longer you, the transition was so smooth that you never woke up to see it. That is the way the darkness works.

I mourn. That is all that is left to do.

impact of covid 19 on freedom


  • While the casualties of government-imposed COVID-19 countermeasures are manifold, the biggest and most tragic of them all is the loss of individual freedoms
  • We either choose freedom, or we choose to live under authoritarian rule. Even if restrictions are lifted, public attitude can place freedom on shaky ground, as public acceptance of overreach will allow for the same to occur again and again at a moment’s notice
  • The freedom to interact with other human beings is a crucial, most basic human need

  • The answer, if we really want to protect the masses, is to educate and promote healthy living at all stages of life. Improving your health through a healthy lifestyle, sunshine, fresh air and real food, is the best way to protect the most people

While the casualties of government-imposed COVID-19 countermeasures are manifold, the biggest and most tragic of them all is the loss of individual freedoms. As noted by Jonathan Sumption in his February 15, 2021, Telegraph commentary:1

“What makes us a free society is that, although the state has vast powers, there are conventional limits on what it can do with them. The limits are conventional because they do not depend on our laws but on our attitudes. 

There are islands of human life which are our own, a personal space into which the state should not intrude without some altogether exceptional justification.

Liberal democracy breaks down when frightened majorities demand mass coercion of their fellow citizens, and call for our personal spaces to be invaded. These demands are invariably based on what people conceive to be the public good. They all assert that despotism is in the public interest.”

A Fragile Freedom

As Sumption points out, “We cannot switch in and out of totalitarianism at will.” We either choose freedom, or we choose to live under authoritarian rule. Even if (and that’s a big if, at this point) restrictions are lifted, public attitude can place freedom on shaky ground, as public acceptance of overreach will allow for the same to occur again and again at a moment’s notice.

This is a serious problem, as there will always be other epidemics and pandemics. There is always the threat of terrorism and climate change. There will always be a public health calamity, be it obesity or diabetes, that can be used as justification for government intrusion into our private lives. 

“A threshold has now been crossed,” Sumption writes.2 “A big taboo has gone. Other governments will say that the only question that matters is whether it works and whether they can ‘get away with it’ … We already have a striking example. The vaccine, which was supposed to make the lockdown unnecessary, has become a reason for keeping it in force …

Infections, hospitalizations and deaths are plunging, but millions who are at virtually no risk are being kept in house imprisonment. This is being done mainly because a selective regime of controls would be too difficult for the state to enforce. Coercion quickly becomes an object in itself.”

Personal Liberty Is Worth Fighting For

Personal liberty, as Sumption points out, is critically important, and perhaps most important of all, for our mental and physical health, is the freedom to interact with other human beings. It is an absolutely crucial and most basic of human needs. Infants robbed of physical interaction fail to thrive and are at increased risk of death. 

But children, adolescents, adults and the elderly have no lesser need for it. We may tolerate it for longer without marked ill effect, but over time, it takes its toll on health, emotional stability and longevity. The fact that we’re allowing government to ban human interaction is a dire sign of a society at the brink of self-destruction. 

“I do not doubt that there are extreme situations in which oppressive controls over our daily lives may be necessary and justified,” Sumption writes.3

An epidemic of Ebola, with a death rate of 50%, for example, might qualify. However, COVID-19 is nowhere near that serious a threat. As noted by Sumption, COVID-19 “is well within the range of perils which we have always had to live with, and always will.”

Data4 show the overall noninstitutionalized infection fatality ratio is 0.26%. People under the age of 40 have a mere 0.01% risk of dying from the infection. The vast majority that test positive for SARS-CoV-2 have no symptoms at all, and most do not get seriously ill.

We Must Relearn to Accept the Inevitabilities of Life

What’s more, the average age of death from COVID-19 is somewhere between 76.9, according to one study,5 and 82, according to U.K. government data cited by Sumption.6

Either way, this is right around the average age of death from any cause anyway, and therefore not an outrageous threat to public health. Yet, the public willingly relinquishes the freedom to live a normal life, somehow oddly convinced that by trading in their freedom, people at the end of their life will be spared the pain of death. They won’t. None of us will. 

The answer, if we really want to protect the masses, is to educate and promote healthy living at all stages of life. Improving your health through a healthy lifestyle, sunshine, fresh air and real food, is the best way to protect the most people.

The inevitabilities of life — which include uncertainty, moment-to-moment risk and the surety of death — demand that we not require people to cease living in order to “save” others from the ramifications of ill health, regardless of their age. It’s as inhumane as it is illogical. 

Rather, the answer, if we really want to protect the masses, is to educate and promote healthy living at all stages of life. Improving your health through a healthy lifestyle, sunshine, fresh air and real food, is the best way to protect the most people. Quarantining and shunning human interaction are probably the worst things you can do for yourself and society at large. 

And let’s not go down the road of all the psychological devastation caused by teaching children to fear their own hands, other people, the air they breathe, and that their very presence poses a lethal threat to others. 

The Press Has Become an Instrument of Control

Historically, the press has been viewed as a crucial instrument for a well-informed public, and thus supportive of a free and democratically-run society. Indeed, this is why journalists and news outlets were known as “the Fourth Estate.” It was an acknowledgement of their societal influence. To be effective, the press had to develop a certain amount of public trust. Today, trust in mainstream media has dramatically eroded, and for good reason. 

Time and again, reporters and entire news outlets have been caught peddling fake news, and when the press misleads rather than informs the public of the facts, they become tools for tyranny. Their viewers become more ignorant by the day rather than more informed, and thus more easily controlled and manipulated. 

In a recent substack article,7 independent journalist Matt Taibbi addresses the attempt by UCLA professor and co-leader of the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry, Sarah Roberts, to shame readers away from substack. “Substack is a dangerous direct threat to traditional news media,” Roberts tweeted. 

According to her half-baked reasoning, journalists who leave mainstream newsrooms for substack and other independent portals are taking unfair advantage of the trust they earned while gainfully employed within the Fourth Estate. Then, once on their own, they can print whatever they want without having to go through the onerous chore of fact checking and other standard checks and balances.

“To imply that trust is a thing that can only be conferred by a mainstream newsroom is beyond insulting, especially since mainstream news organizations already long ago started to become infamous for betraying exactly those hallowed ‘norms’ to which Roberts refers,”Taibbi writes.8

“Why did a source like former NSA contractor Edward Snowden choose to come forward to Glenn Greenwald in particular? He surely wasn’t bothered by the fact that Glenn didn’t come up through the ranks of a paper like the New York Times or Washington Post.

The answer connects to one of the primary reasons audiences are moving to places like Substack: the perception that traditional news outlets have become tools of the very corporate and political interests they’re supposed to be overseeing. 

Roberts complains about lines between opinion and reporting being blurred at Substack (an absurd comment on its own, but that’s a separate issue), but the ‘blurring’ problem at those other organizations is far more severe. Are newspapers like the New York Timeschecks on power, or agents of it?”

A Century of Controlled Media 

As detailed in “Reuters and BBC Caught Taking Money for Propaganda Campaign,” infiltration and manipulation of the media has been a routine occurrence since 1915, when J.P. Morgan interests, including the steel and shipbuilding industries, purchased editorial control of 25 of the most influential newspapers, thereby allowing them to control news about military preparedness, financial policies and other stories deemed crucial to their private and corporate interests. 

Then, in 1948, the CIA launched Operation Mockingbird, a clandestine media infiltration campaign that allowed the agency to control and inject its own propaganda into the mainstream press. Today, several decades later, it’s clear that Operation Mockingbird never ceased. As noted by Taibbi:9

“The major ‘traditional’ cable networks, as well as many of the bigger daily newspapers, have for years now been engaged in mad hiring sprees of ex-spooks, putting whole nests of known perjurers and Langley goons on their payrolls as contributors, where they regularly provide ‘commentary’ on news stories in which they themselves have involvement.”

The modern propaganda machine also includes Big Tech, which allows for previously unthinkable information control through automated censorship across a much broader spectrum of sources. 

Literally overnight, an individual or company involved in the dissemination of truthful information that goes against the status quo can have their website shadow banned by search engines, their social media accounts eliminated, their web hosting and email services canceled and their online payment systems shut down. From one day to the next, you, your thoughts, opinions and all your hard work can be effectively erased.

Political Powerbrokers Call for Massive Censoring 

We’re now even seeing politicians starting to throw their weight around, demanding censoring of political opponents and news outlets that fail to properly toe the political line. 

U.S. House Democrats from California — Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney — went so far as to send a letter to a dozen cable, satellite and streaming TV companies, basically telling them to censor or remove Fox News, Newsmax and OANN. As noted by Glenn Greenwald in an article10 on the rapid escalation of government calls for censorship:

“Democrats’ justification for silencing their adversaries online and in media — ‘They are spreading fake news and inciting extremism’ — is what despots everywhere say … Since when is it the role of the U.S. Government to arbitrate and enforce precepts of ‘journalistic integrity’? 

Unless you believe in the right of the government to regulate and control what the press says — a power which the First Amendment explicitly prohibits — how can anyone be comfortable with members of Congress arrogating unto themselves the power to dictate what media outlets are permitted to report and control how they discuss and analyze the news of the day?”

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr has strongly denounced the Democrats’ actions, calling it a “marked departure from First Amendment norms,” adding that the demands are “a chilling transgression of the free speech rights that every media outlet in this country enjoys … No government official has any business inquiring about the ‘moral principles’ that guide a private entity’s decision about what news to carry.”11

To What Aim Control?

It’s important to realize that authoritarian dictators are not, in fact, trying to help you. They’re trying to change you. Censorship does not protect the public. It’s a control mechanism, as you are unlikely to rebel against an injustice that you don’t even know exists, or if you know about it, your understanding of the problem is diametrically opposed to the truth; hence, you’ll support a “solution” that will perpetuate or deepen the problem. 

At an even deeper level, censorship and information suppression is an effort to alter your cognitive faculties, because how do you even define people and things that you are not allowed to criticize? As noted by Taibbi, Big Tech and media are tools for politicians, corporations and the intelligence industry, the interests of which are frequently diametrically opposed to that of the people. 

Chemical companies cannot sell their toxic wares if an informed public shuns them. The fake food industry cannot flourish if the public understands the basics of health. Technocracy cannot be implemented if an informed public opposes the agenda, and so on. 

What we see clearer than ever these days, is the schism in journalism where the old-school norms of gathering data and then delivering it to the audience and allowing them to make up their own minds as to whether it’s good or bad has been replaced by subjective interpretation of the data. 

Essentially, most mainstream reporters now tell you how to think about a given topic. They even tell us how to think about people who refuse to think the way they’re instructed to think. That way, the public ends up doing the dirty work of censoring, canceling and dehumanizing the undesirables for them. 

Rule Through Medicine

While the rise of dictatorships has historically involved the use of armed forces to subdue an unruly public, the budding dictatorship of today relies heavily on weaponized medicine and the control of information. If you’ve taken the time to familiarize yourself with the concept of technocracy, which has a distinct transhumanist component to it, you will see why this makes perfect sense and was, in fact, entirely predictable. 

By tying the issue of health care into the digital surveillance apparatus, you end up with a very robust platform for automated mass control. The use of fear also works well in this scenario, since most are keen to stay alive and don’t want their loved ones to die. So, they fall for lies like “we have to shut down the world and sequester indoors for months on end or else we all die.” 

A leading figure in this medical dictatorship scheme is Bill Gates, who now wields a dominating influence over not just Big Tech but also global health policy, agriculture and food policy (including biopiracy and fake food), weather modification and other climate technologies,12 surveillance, education and media. As reported by The GrayZone:13

“Beyond the public relations bonanza about Gates lies a disturbing history that should raise concerns about whether his foundation’s plans for resolving the pandemic will benefit the global public as much as it expands and entrenches its power over international institutions. 

The Gates Foundation has already effectively privatized the international body charged with creating health policy, transforming it into a vehicle for corporate dominance. It has facilitated the dumping of toxic products onto the people of the Global South, and even used the world’s poor as guinea pigs for drug experiments. 

The Gates Foundation’s influence over public health policy is practically contingent on ensuring that safety regulations and other government functions are weak enough to be circumvented … Strong evidence suggests that the Gates Foundation functions as a Trojan horse for Western corporations, which of course have no goal greater than an increased bottom line.”

Indeed, as reviewed in “Bill Gates — Most Dangerous Philanthropist in Modern History?” Gates donates billions to private companies, and is invested in the very products and businesses he donates money to and otherwise promotes as solutions to the world’s problems, be they hunger, disease, pandemic viruses or climate change. 

As suggested by The GrayZone, Gates’ global health empire is more about building an empire for himself and his technocrat cronies than promoting public health.14

The Great Reset — A Plan to Capitalize on COVID-19 Pandemic

For a time, there was so much uncertainty about SARS-CoV-2 and the infection it causes, you’re forgiven if you opted to err on the side of caution. Now, however, a full year later, it’s become obvious that this pandemic was never as serious as portrayed by the media, and that it is being used (whether preplanned or not) as a convenient vehicle for a radical overhaul of just about every aspect of life. And not for the better. 

In a recent report, independent journalist Johnny Vedmore delved into the professional history and personal background Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum, who wrote the books “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” (2016), “Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution” (2018) and “COVID-19: The Great Reset,” thereby cementing his role as a leading figurehead for the modern technocracy movement. Vedmore writes:15

“As the driving force behind the World Economic Forum … Schwab has courted heads of state, leading business executives, and the elite of academic and scientific circles into the Davos fold for over 50 years. 

More recently, he has also courted the ire of many due to his more recent role as the frontman of the Great Reset, a sweeping effort to remake civilization globally for the express benefit of the elite of the World Economic Forum and their allies …

Like many prominent frontmen for elite-sponsored agendas, the online record of Schwab has been well-sanitized, making it difficult to come across information on his early history as well as information on his family. 

Yet, having been born in Ravensburg, Germany in 1938, many have speculated in recent months that Schwab’s family may have had some tie to Axis war efforts, ties that, if exposed, could threaten the reputation of the World Economic Forum and bring unwanted scrutiny to its professed missions and motives …

Digging even deeper into his activities, it becomes clear that Schwab’s real role has long been to ‘shape global, regional and industry agendas’ of the present in order to ensure the continuity of larger, much older agendas that came into disrepute after World War II, not just nuclear technology, but also eugenics-influenced population control policies … 

Is Klaus Schwab trying to create the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or is he trying to create the Fourth Reich?”

Is Depopulation Part of the Agenda?

Gates’ family history is also heavy on eugenics,16 as is the Club of Rome’s agenda,17 another technocratic power center. The United Nation’s Agenda 21 also hints at the need for a dramatic reduction in population size in the coming decade.18

The idea that eugenics might make a comeback may seem like a remote possibility, but considering the history of using vaccinations to secretly inhibit fertility in native populations, it would be naïve to dismiss the possibility out of hand. As reported in a 2014 paper written by researchers at the University of Louisiana and the University of British Columbia:19

“Published research shows that by 1976 WHO researchers had conjugated tetanus toxoid (TT) with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) producing a ‘birth-control’ vaccine. 

Conjugating TT with hCG causes pregnancy hormones to be attacked by the immune system. Expected results are abortions in females already pregnant and/or infertility in recipients not yet impregnated. Repeated inoculations prolong infertility. Currently WHO researchers are working on more potent anti-fertility vaccines using recombinant DNA. 

WHO publications show a long-range purpose to reduce population growth in unstable ‘less developed countries.’ By November 1993 Catholic publications appeared saying an abortifacient vaccine was being used as a tetanus prophylactic. 

In November 2014, the Catholic Church asserted that such a program was underway in Kenya. Three independent Nairobi accredited biochemistry laboratories tested samples from vials of the WHO tetanus vaccine being used in March 2014 and found hCG where none should be present …

Given that hCG was found in at least half the WHO vaccine samples known by the doctors involved in administering the vaccines to have been used in Kenya, our opinion is that the Kenya ‘anti-tetanus’ campaign was reasonably called into question by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association as a front for population growth reduction.”

Certain vaccines have also been found to cause infertility as an unexpected side effect. For example, a 2018 study published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health20 found that women who received HPV vaccinations suffered higher rates of infertility. 

According to this study, “if 100% of females in this study had received the HPV vaccine, data suggest the number of women having ever conceived would have fallen by 2 million.” After “skeptic” critics of scientific evidence that vaccines have significant health risks publicly attacked the study, the paper was withdrawn by the publisher.21

What We Lose Is Exponentially Harder to Get Back

Safeguarding our Constitutional rights and civil liberties against unlawful government overreach is essential. Yet many are willingly giving up freedoms that, once gone, may be difficult, if not impossible, to get back. Vaccine passports are just one example.

By showing proof that you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine, through a digital certificate or app on your phone, the hope is that you can once again board an airplane and travel freely, attend a concert or enjoy a meal in your favorite restaurant, just like you used to. 

Except, being required to present your “papers” in order to live your life isn’t actually freedom at all — it’s a loss of personal liberty that you once had, one that disappeared right before your eyes and one that’s setting the stage for even more intrusive surveillance and privacy erosion. 

While government has a duty to protect the health and welfare of its citizens, this duty must be balanced against the loss of individual rights and liberties. Right now we’re facing a battle of freedom versus tyranny. Long term lockdowns are clearly not in the public’s best interest. Rather, it’s tantamount to abuse. 

Will You Obey or Fight for Freedom?

It is vital to understand that the vast majority of information you are exposed to in mainstream media is carefully designed propaganda crafted from nearly two decades of stolen personal data collected from you. 

This data is then run through very sophisticated and advanced deep learning algorithms that are then able to accurately predict what will trigger your emotions to achieve their desired behavior.

As I have carefully identified in many previous articles, this plan will result in progressive loss in your freedom and liberty that eventually results in tyranny and slavery. So, be ever vigilant and seek the truth so you can understand reality well enough to distinguish between fact and a fictional narrative that promises to offer you liberation but, rather, eventually enslaves you.

In my newest book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” I investigate the origins of this virus and how the elite use it to slowly erode your personal liberty and freedom. I’ll also show how you can protect yourself against this disease and what you can do to fight back against the technocratic overlords. 

My book will be available April 29, but you can preorder it now on Amazon. Why Amazon, you may ask? Well, this book talks in detail about pandemic profiteers, and by getting its ranking pushed up via one of the biggest Big Tech companies benefiting from this global pandemic — although I am not thrilled about associating with Amazon — we are actually using their platform against them! https://articles.mercola.com/sites/mercola/special-content/truth-about-covid-index-tag.aspx?cid_medium=email

LARP: Live Action Role Play

noun: live action role-playing: a fantasy role-playing game in which participants dress in costume, use props, and act out roles.

verb: (used without object) LARPed, LARP·ing. To participate in a live action role-playing game.

Fake: fakeness

a thing that is not genuine; a forgery or sham.


Deception, an act or a statement intended to deceive

Charlatan, a person who practices deception to obtain money or other advantages

Counterfeit, a reproduction of an item, intended to deceive

Cover-up, an attempt to conceal wrongdoing, error, or other embarrassing information

Decoy, a person, device, or event meant as a distraction

Put those two together and you have the UFO game that has been in action since the 40’s. IMO after seeing how well this worked on an intelligent dogged community like we UFO researchers (even after we know we have been larped in the ubiquitous 20 year cycle, we get back at it) what if the globalists decided to use it politically? I mean this last year has all the earmarks of several ongoing LARPs. 

We have the Space Force (once upon a time called the SSP: Secret Space Program) which is hooked into the military and budget funding that connects it to politics. We have the Covid Program which is hooked into big Ag and big Pharma, and funding which connects it to politics. We have the media used as a tool to ensure the LARPs work. (I’m sure there are more, but this is adequate for my discussion)

It’s like politics has turned into UFO world where they pull the rug out from under you every 4 years, instead of every 20 UFO years, and then start it all over again. Maybe UFO world was simply a testing ground to see if it would work on a global population? It seems like a game of lies because nothing we see happening feels real – in any quadrant – doesn’t matter where you look. It also feels glitchy to me – like there is/was a mistake and reality is being altered, yet again! Which is causing a failure to thrive. Nothing is what it should be, its all skewed. All spun. 

Just like the UFO genre, politically we have our emerging stars in this arena, the home grown heroes promising wonderful things.  Curiously, they are even merging themselves with the information from the UFO field. Using the characters and story structure like they created it. I find that very telling in a lot of ways. Very fishy, if you ask me. Too good to be true…

So, we in the UFO field know how much research and work it takes to get our proverbial asses up off the floor after being unceremoniously dumped there when the rug was pulled, but does the rest of everybody even have a clue of how to do that? We are used to it – and we carry on, we fact gather we never cease and we certainly don’t expect a savior to step in and fix it, a.k.a. the government announcement on the white house lawn that the aliens are here with a live alien demonstration. So, what makes us think that there will be a political savior that will step in and put a stop to all the political stupidity? 

IMO we are going to have to treat this political fakeness fiasco the same way we do it in UFO world, knuckle down, do our research, somehow get it out there and change the world, one person at a time. Until we do, get ready for the 4 year ubiquitous land on your ass cycle.

Oh Gee, how fun.

Development of new vaccine technology has been plagued with problems in the past. The current RNA based SARS- CoV-2 vaccines were approved in the US using an emergency order without extensive long term safety testing. In this paper the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was evaluated for the potential to induce prion-based disease in vaccine recipients. The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations. In the current analysis a total of sixteen UG tandem repeats (ΨGΨG) were identified and additional UG (ΨG) rich sequences were identified. Two GGΨA sequences were found. Potential G Quadruplex sequences are possibly present but a more sophisticated computer program is needed to verify these. Furthermore, the spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine RNA, binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), a zinc containing enzyme. This interaction has the potential to increase intracellular zinc. Zinc ions have been shown to cause the transformation of TDP-43 to its pathologic prion configuration. The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases. The enclosed finding as well as additional potential risks leads the author to believe that regulatory approval of the RNA based vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 was premature and that the vaccine may cause much more harm than benefit.


Vaccines have been found to cause a host of chronic, late developing adverse events. Some adverse events like type 1 diabetes may not occur until 3-4 years after a vaccine is administered [1]. In the example of type 1 diabetes the frequency of cases of adverse events may surpass the frequency of cases of severe infectious disease the vaccine was designed to prevent. Given that type 1 diabetes is only one of many immune mediated diseases potentially caused by vaccines, chronic late occurring adverse events are a serious public health issue.

The advent of new vaccine technology creates new potential mechanisms of vaccine adverse events. For example, the first killed polio vaccine actually caused polio in recipients because the up scaled manufacturing process did not effectively kill the polio virus before it was injected into patients. RNA based vaccines offers special risks of inducing specific adverse events. One such potential adverse event is prion based diseases caused by activation of intrinsic proteins to form prions. A wealth of knowledge has been published on a class of RNA binding proteins shown to participating in causing a number of neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s disease and ALS. TDP-43 and FUS are among the best studied of these proteins [2].

The Pfizer RNA based COVID-19 vaccine was approved by the US FDA under an emergency use authorization without long term safety data. Because of concerns about the safety of this vaccine a study was performed to determine if the vaccine could potentially induce prion based disease.


Pfizer’s RNA based vaccine against COVID-19 was evaluated for the potential to convert TDP-43 and or FUS to their prion based disease causing states. The vaccine RNA was analyzed for the presence of sequences that can activate TDP-43 and FUS. The interaction of the transcribed spike protein with its target was analyzed to determine if this action could also activate TDP-43 and FUS.


Analysis of the Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19 identified two potential risk factors for inducing prion disease is humans. The RNA sequence in the vaccine [3] contains sequences believed to induce TDP-43 and FUS to aggregate in their prion based conformation leading to the development of common neurodegerative diseases. In particular it has been shown that RNA sequences GGUA [4], UG rich sequences [5], UG tandem repeats [6], and G Quadruplex sequences [7], have increased affinity to bind TDP-43 and or FUS and may cause TDP-43 or FUS to take their pathologic configurations in the cytoplasm. In the current analysis a total of sixteen UG tandem repeats (ΨGΨG) were identified and additional UG (ΨG) rich sequences were identified. Two GGΨA sequences were found. G Quadruplex sequences are possibly present but sophisticated computer programs are needed to verify these.

The spike protein encoded by the vaccine binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), an enzyme which contains zinc molecules [8]. The binding of spike protein to ACE2 has the potential to release the zinc molecule, an ion that causes TDP-43 to assume its pathologic prion transformation [9].


There is an old saying in medicine that “the cure may be worse than the disease.” The phrase can be applied to vaccines. In the current paper the concern is raised that the RNA based COVID vaccines have the potential to cause more disease than the epidemic of COVID-19. This paper focuses on a novel potential adverse event mechanism causing prion disease which could be even more common and debilitating than the viral infection the vaccine is designed to prevent. While this paper focuses on one potential adverse event there are multiple other potential fatal adverse events as discussed below.

Over the last two decades there has been a concern among certain scientists that prions could be used as bioweapons. More recently there has been a concern that ubiquitous intracellular molecules could be activated to cause prion disease including Alzheimer’s disease, ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases. This concern originates due to potential for misuse of research data on the mechanisms by which certain RNA binding proteins like TDP-43, FUS and others can be activated to form disease causing prions. The fact that this research, which could be used for bioweapons development, is funded by private organizations including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Ellison Medical Foundation [2] without national/international oversight is also a concern. In the past, for example, there were prohibitions for publishing information pertaining to construction of nuclear bombs.

Published data has shown that there are several different factors that can contribute to the conversion of certain RNA binding proteins including TDP-43, FUS and related molecules to their pathologic states. These RNA binding proteins have many functions and are found in both the nucleus and the cytoplasm. These binding proteins have amino acid regions, binding motifs that bind specific RNA sequences. Binding to certain RNA sequences when the proteins are in the cytoplasm is believed to causes the molecules to fold in certain ways leading to pathologic aggregation and prion formation in the cytoplasm [2]. The current analysis indicates Pfizer’s RNA based COVID-19 vaccine contains many of these RNA sequences that have been shown to have high affinity for TDP-43 or FUS and have the potential to induce chronic degenerative neurological diseases.

Zinc binding to the RNA recognition motif of TDP-43 is another mechanism leading to formation of amyloid like aggregations [9]. The viral spike protein, coded by the vaccine RNA sequence, binds ACE2 an enzyme containing zinc molecules [8]. This interaction has the potential to increase intracellular zinc levels leading to prion disease. The initial binding could be between spike proteins on the surface of the cell transfected by the vaccine and ACE2 on the surface of an adjacent cell. The resulting complex may become internalized. Alternatively, the interaction could initially take place in the cytoplasm of a cell that makes ACE2 and has been transfected with the vaccine RNA coding for the spike protein. The interaction is quite concerning given the belief that the virus causing COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, is a bioweapon [10,11] and it is possible that the viral spike protein may have been designed to cause prion disease.

Another related concern is that the Pfizer vaccine uses a unique RNA nucleoside 1-methyl-3′-pseudouridylyl (Ψ). According to FDA briefing documents, this nucleoside was chosen to reduce activation of the innate immune system [12]. RNA molecules containing this nucleoside will undoubtedly have altered binding [13]. Unfortunately, the effect on TDP-43, FUS and other RNA binding proteins is not published. The use of this nucleoside in a vaccine can potentially enhance the binding affinity of RNA sequences capable of causing TDP-43 and FUS to assume toxic configurations.

There are many other potential adverse events that can be induced by the novel RNA based vaccines against COVID-19. The vaccine places a novel molecule, spike protein, in/on the surface of host cells. This spike protein is a potential receptor for another possibly novel infectious agent. If those who argue that the COVID-19 is actually a bioweapon are correct, then a second potentially more dangerous virus may be released that binds spike protein found on the host cells of vaccine recipients. Data is not publicly available to provide information on how long the vaccine RNA is translated in the vaccine recipient and how long after translation the spike protein will be present in the recipient’s cells. Such studies pertaining to in vivo expression will be complex and challenging. Genetic diversity protects species from mass casualties caused by infectious agents. One individual may be killed by a virus while another may have no ill effects from the same virus. By placing the identical receptor, the spike protein, on cells of everyone in a population, the genetic diversity for at least one potential receptor disappears. Everyone in the population now becomes potentially susceptible to binding with the same infectious agent.

Autoimmunity and the opposing condition, metabolic syndrome, are well know adverse events caused by vaccines [14]. COVID-19 infections are associated with the induction of autoantibodies and autoimmune disease [15,16] making it more than plausible a vaccine could do the same. One author has found amino acid sequences coded by the spike protein to be identical to sequences in human proteins including proteins found in the CNS [17]. Autoimmunity can also be induced by epitope spreading when a foreign antigen, like the spike protein, is presented by an antigen presenting cell that also has self molecules attached to its MHC molecules.

Finally, others working in the field have published additional support that COVID-19 vaccines could potentially induce prion disease. Authors [18] found prion related sequences in the COVID-19 spike protein which were not found in related coronaviruses. Others [19] have reported a case of prion disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, initially occurring in a man with COVID-19.

Many have raised the warning that the current epidemic of COVID-19 is actually the result of an bioweapons attack released in part by individuals in the United States government [10,11]. Such a theory is not far fetched given that the 2001 anthrax attack in the US originated at Fort Detrick, a US army bioweapon facility. Because the FBI’s anthrax investigation was closed against the advice of the lead FBI agent in the case, there are likely conspirators still working in the US government. In such a scenario the primary focus of stopping a bioweapons attack must be to apprehend the conspirators or the attacks will never cease. Approving a vaccine, utilizing novel RNA technology without extensive testing is extremely dangerous. The vaccine could be a bioweapon and even more dangerous than the original infection.
