Acknowledging betrayal

If the official story of 9/11 is false (and all the subsequent false flag attacks), the implications are just too much for many to contemplate. So rather than face the truth, that our own governments are complicit in attacking and killing us, many retreat into denial - the result? Cognitive dissonance.

The stress and impact of suppressing such frightening truths is traumatic enough but when chemical, radiowave and psychological warfare are added to the mix, it is no wonder that mental "illness" is on the rise. However, these so called psychological conditions and syndromes are classified and treated with drugs so as to further reduce our ability to think and resist. It starts in school with ADHD and expands into thousands of classified mental conditions.

Psychiatric Diagnosis, Surveillance State Linked by Jon Rappoport
Pay close attention to this one. It’s the future coming at you like a strong wind.
First, a bit of background. As my readers know, I’ve assembled conclusive proof that psychiatric diagnosis of mental disorders is a fraud. It’s pseudoscience. There are no defining lab tests. No definitive blood, saliva, hair, brain, genetic tests.
Instead, committees of psychiatrists meet and discuss arbitrary clusters of behaviors, group them and label them with “mental-disorder” names.
But diehards insist that one of the earliest and oldest disorders, schizophrenia, is the exception. That one is solid. That one isn’t pseudoscience. That one is the “gold standard.”

If you're a "conspiracy theorist", you're a (mental) misfit, an aberration, according to academia, whereas conspiracy theorists are probably the most well adjusted in society, not least because they don't have to wrestle with the torture of cognitive dissonance.

When we can make sense of the world, when we've crossed the barriers of fear, confusion, anger and impotence, when we learn and share what we learn, we sense our own power in a world seeking to dis-empower us all.


Chemical attack and illness

We are all subject to chemical attack on a daily basis; toxic chemicals are sprayed on us and ingested through food and water. We are under further attack from toxins in cosmetics and medicines, particularly vaccines.

The Impacts of Vaccines: Aluminum, Autoimmunity, Autism and Alzheimer’s by Dr. Gary G. Kohls
Rebutting Big Pharma’s Talking Points About the Safety of Aluminum (and Mercury) in Vaccines

I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine…has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Dr. Bernard Dalbergue a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, emphasis added.

“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable…for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when vaccines kill or disable children

“The 271 vaccines in development span a wide array of diseases, and employ exciting new scientific strategies and technologies. These potential vaccines – all in human clinical trials or under review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – include 137 for infectious diseases, 99 for cancer, 15 for allergies and 10 for neurological disorders.”  Statement from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) – the pharmaceutical industry’s trade association and lobbying group.

The political economy is psychopathic; which doesn't mean everyone in the hierarchy are psychopaths. Doctors, for example, in the main, choose their vocation to save and prolong life but prescribe medicines and treatments which kill. Siloing of information and suppression of data, which could change doctors' prescription practices, and Rockefeller controlled medical schools ensure the big pharma gravy train keeps rolling.

Self-medication through diet and exercise can reduce our reliance on allopathy (orthodox medicine) and homeopathy or "nature's cures" can treat many conditions without the side effects of prescription drugs. These won't, however, protect us from chemical attack conducted without our consent. Chemtrails will only cease when people become aware and withdraw consent to being poisoned, oppressed and abused.

Just money?

UK Column gives a UK perspective on domestic and global affairs. Pearse Redmond (Porkins Policy Radio) talks from a US perspective and here discusses the privatisation of war and the furore over Russian "interference" in US politics.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 101 The Russians Are Coming with JP Sottile and Robbie Martin (1 hour 58 minutes)

During the conversations, Pearse asks the question, is it just money and crony capitalism which is driving this? Money is the visible mechanism of control and as Daily Pickings has pointed out repeatedly "who controls money controls the world".

Meanwhile, James Corbett, a Canadian who resides and works from Japan, explains the futility of left/right politics.

Criminal Psychopaths Run The Government...Let's Give Them More Power!!! (7 minute video)

James omits the role of money in driving psychopathy and kakistocracy but the overriding message, that voting republican or democrat, conservative or labour will change nothing, is important.

We are the authors of our future and we can either passively vote for the next psychopathic regime to ratchet up the war of oppression on us all or we can co-create a better future, together.

Nothing is impossible, if we don't mind who gets the credit.

Media to inform

Daily Pickings has been highlighting the importance of shunning mainstream propaganda in favour of independent news and analysis.

Mainstream media bury truth by fabricating stories and pushing trivia to divide and distract. Seldom is there continuity in reporting or historical context to help understanding. The media caravan alights on a particular story for a particular purpose, makes it big news for the desired period and then moves on. By filling news broadcasts with trivia, sport and celebrity, they can ignore important stories such as genocide in Yemen and child trafficking on a global scale.


Media institutions are complicit in paedophilia and they aren't reporting on the many links between power and paedophilia; they certainly aren't looking at the disappearance of migrant children within the paedophiles' paradise, aka. the UK's child "protection" services.

Be informed and be empowered - don't watch, don't read, don't listen, don't pay the BBC and other corrupt media. Knowledge is power.
