A former lobbyist at Coca-Cola has come forward with bombshell information about the junk food corporation’s deceptive, racist, and potentially criminal behavior.
Calley Means, who worked on behalf of The Coca-Cola Company in years past, says the multinational purveyor of poison “food” paid the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) to slander as “racist” any and all scientists, researchers, or other “opponents” whose work exposed Coke products as toxic.
Coke also paid off willing parties to produce pseudoscience “debunking” the link between soft drink consumption and diseases like obesity and diabetes. (Related: Ten years ago, Coca-Cola tried to boost sales by marketing its high-fructose corn syrup [HFCS]-laden junk food soft drinks as healthy for breakfast.)
“Early in my career, I consulted for Coke to ensure sugar taxes failed and soda was included in food stamp funding,” Means recently revealed. “I say Coke’s policies are evil because I saw inside the room.”
“The first step in playbook was paying the NAACP and other civil rights groups to call opponents racist. Coke gave millions to the NAACP and the Hispanic Federation – both directly and through front groups like the American Beverage Association (ABA).”
In 2011 when the idea of soda taxes really started to gain legislative traction, Coke amped up the slander and bribery agenda. Means says the conversations he heard within the walls of Coca-Cola corporate were “depressingly transactional.”
“We (Coke) will give you money,” Means recalls about the typical conversations that would take place internally between Coke and its target allies. “You need to paint opponents of us as racist.”
As silly as it all sounds, these tactics worked. As the Farm Bill for 2011-2013 was being negotiated and finalized, thousands of articles flooded the news cycle that helped Coke avert soda taxes and possible removal from the food stamp program.
Aggressive lobbying and slander allowed Coke to lie to the public that soda pop is “one of the cheapest ways to get calories”
Means says Coca-Cola also partnered with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to funnel money into “academia,” which used it to produce “research” claiming that soda taxes would harm low-income populations.
“I watched as the FDA funneled money to professors at leading universities – as well as think tanks on the left and right – to create studies showing soda taxes hurt the poor,” Means says.
“They also paid for studies that say drinking soda didn’t cause obesity.”
Coke was also able to get away with making the false and ludicrous claim that its soft drink products are “one of the cheapest ways to get calories,” which Means describes as “a flagrantly inaccurate statement when factoring in the health consequences.”
It was none other than the ABA that aided Coke in purveying the lie that taxing soda pop would hurt not just poor people but also “local businesses” while “unfairly targeting one product.”
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is also complicit in this racket, having put forth more lies claiming that “there are no bad foods, only bad diets.”
The entire regulatory structure of the United States has clearly been co-opted by Big Industry, which is steering all the “science” in its own favor. Coca-Cola is just one example among many of what an absolute joke this entire system has become – and that some would argue always was.
“The word ‘racist’ has lost all its meaning,” wrote a commenter about Coke’s flagrant abuse of the English language. “The word has been so overused that it lost its meaning.”

Not to spoil your holiday season, but a good reminder of how the system actually works against you. Being corporately controlled of course it’s inevitable. So is emphasized the need to be proactive. It was by falling ill that I suddenly had time to explore the vagaries and dishonesty of the corporation that is in reality, psychopathic by nature. Don’t believe me? Watch The Corporation movie. That was my biggest eye opener. They even target your babies. A familiar theme currently. As a social sciences student in the ’80s, the University I attended told us that ‘in the future’ corporations would control governments. Predictive programming at its finest! See how well Unis are funded by the corporates. Search ‘Otago University, Bill Gates’ and see for yourself … EWR
Doctors predict that by 2030, half of the world’s population will be overweight or obese. An epidemic of obesity is causing a rapid rise in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. It’s becoming the biggest health challenge worldwide. Why has no country managed to stop this epidemic? The food industry and government authorities say it’s due to a lack of individual self-discipline. Is this true? Or is it the result of collective failure — a symptom of a liberal society that abhors obesity, yet produces people who are overweight. Is society itself to blame for this situation? Around the world, politicians, priests, doctors, and average people are standing up to multinational food corporations. They want to take back control of their nutrition and their bodies — and they’re using the law, scientific evidence, and political activism to correct the claim that people who are obese have only themselves to blame. These critics focus on sugary drinks that can be as addictive as some hard drugs; misleading advertising directed at children and low-income people; governments that turn a blind eye to junk-food companies; and lobbying that pushes the limits of legality. These people say that a “hostile takeover” of our food has been underway for four decades, and they’re demanding new legislation to put a stop to it. This documentary investigates how Chile is leading the way in this struggle. Which country will be the next to confront the big food corporations in the name of public health?
For decades, Swiss chemical giant Syngenta has manufactured and marketed a widely used weed killing chemical called paraquat, and for much of that time the company has been dealing with external concerns that long-term exposure to the chemical may cause the dreaded, incurable brain ailment known as Parkinson’s disease.
Syngenta has repeatedly told customers and regulators that scientific research does not prove a connection between its weed killer and the disease, insisting that the chemical does not readily cross the blood-brain barrier, and does not affect brain cells in ways that cause Parkinson’s.
But a cache of internal corporate documents dating back to the 1950s obtained by The New Lede in a reporting collaboration with the Guardian suggests that the public narrative put forward by Syngenta and the corporate entities that preceded it has at times contradicted the company’s own research and knowledge.
And though the documents reviewed do not show that Syngenta’s scientists and executives believed that paraquat can cause Parkinson’s, they do show a corporate focus on strategies to protect product sales, refute external scientific research and influence regulators.
In one defensive tactic, the documents lay out how the company worked behind the scenes to try to keep a highly regarded scientist from sitting on an advisory panel for the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The agency is the chief US regulator for paraquat and other pesticides. Company officials wanted to make sure the efforts could not be traced back to Syngenta, the documents show.
And the documents show that insiders feared they could face legal liability for long-term, chronic effects of paraquat as long ago as 1975. One company scientist called the situation “a quite terrible problem,” for which “some plan could be made….”
That prediction of legal consequences has come to pass. Thousands of people who allege they developed Parkinson’s because of long-term chronic effects of paraquat exposure are now suing Syngenta. Along with Syngenta, they are also suing Chevron USA, the successor to a company that distributed paraquat in the US from 1966 to 1986. Both companies deny any liability and continue to maintain that scientific evidence does not support a causal link between paraquat and Parkinson’s disease.
“Recent thorough reviews performed by the most advanced and science-based regulatory authorities, including the United States and Australia, continue to support the view that paraquat is safe,” Syngenta said in a statement.
Chevron issued a statement saying that the company and predecessors had no role in causing the plaintiffs’ illnesses, and it “will vigorously defend against the allegations in the lawsuits.”
As part of a court-ordered disclosure in the litigation, the companies provided plaintiffs’ lawyers with decades of internal records, including hand-written and typed memos, internal presentations, and emails to and from scientists, lawyers and company officials around the world. And though the files have not yet been made public through the court system, The New Lede and the Guardian reviewed hundreds of pages of these documents.
Among the revelations from the documents: Scientists with Syngenta predecessor Imperial Chemical Industries Ltd. (ICI) and Chevron Chemical were aware in the 1960s and 70s of mounting evidence showing paraquat could accumulate in the human brain.
Do I think the condition of society is terminal? No. It is wildly out of balance, completely polarised, and financially strapped, but these are still things that hopefully can be fixed. So why have they happened?
Consumers Can Switch to Bidets if They Are Unhappy
Yesterday I wandered glumly around my local supermarket, morosely looking at price tags. Toilet paper which pre-pandemic sold for $8.50 for 18 rolls, was now selling for $18.50 for 24 rolls. Despite the bigger package, you can’t disguise the fact that this is a wicked price increase of 63%. Callously a supermarket spokesperson joked New Zealand consumers can switch to bidets if they are unhappy.
This price increase, and many others like it (too many), is more a reflection of how corporations have come to regard customers than it is related to any underlying economic conditions. The global and local economy has slipped into a predatory frame of mind.
Economic decisions are taken by individuals. The current economic downturn implies that individual decision-makers have become more isolated from the needs of their fellows. Society is not a reality TV show where the winner takes all, the individual and social interest need to remain balanced. So how have we lost this perspective?
Mind-body Balance is Fundamental to Health
Balance of mind is supported by balance of body—balance of physiological processes. Loss of a balanced perspective involves a loss of physiological balance. Traditional systems of healthcare like Indian ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and many others regard balance as a fundamental of health. Ayurveda seeks to maintain physiological balance through herbal and other interventions. It identifies three fundamental components of physiological (and incidentally mental) balance: Transport, Transformation, and Structure.
RNA, in one form or another, touches nearly everything in a cell. RNA carries out a broad range of functions, from translating genetic information into the molecular machines and structures of the cell to regulating the activity of genes during development, cellular differentiation, and changing environments.
Note these RNA responsibilities: Translating, Regulating Activity, and Maintaining Structure. Which run exactly parallel to the ayurvedic components of balance.
You can see where this is going. Change the way the RNA works in our trillions of cells, and how much have you interfered with balance? Not just physiological balance, but crucially balance of mind. Body and mind are intimately connected; they are not separate but are two sides of one coin.
It is widely accepted that drugs affect mental processes, so why is it not routine to test the possible mental effects of novel medical interventions?
Consumption of Psychotropic Drugs Has Been Normalised Despite Questions About Safety
When a close friend was studying at Auckland University, they were asked to write an essay on the morality of drug use with reference to the philosophy of John Stuart Mill. Mill combined philosophy with economics. He believed that the individual is free to choose what makes them happy unless it interferes with social well-being. According to Mill’s philosophy, the question was asked whether individual drug taking was right or wrong.
My friend argued that individual drug taking should be considered a social ill because of the conditions under which drugs are supplied lead to a lot of undesirable effects on families and healthcare systems. The paper was awarded a low mark. Faculty expected that students would decide that drug taking was an acceptable individual choice.
This story had a happy ending, my friend appealed their mark which was raised on independent review. The bad taste in the mouth remained for me—we live in a society where the consumption of psychotropic drugs, both legal and illegal, has been normalised despite questions about safety.
In other words, mental and physiological balance has been put aside in favour of the superman philosophy. Any sign of trouble, dodge into a phone booth, pop a pill, and emerge ready to save the world. Naturally, our response to the pandemic had to be a pill or an injection. The fundamentals of health—diet, lifestyle, rest, exercise, and happiness had already been relegated to a distant second place by our fascination with all things pharmaceutical and even labelled conspiracy theories.
The Rush to Vaccinate Turned Out to Be a Fatal Mistake
According to medical orthodoxy, vaccination should have been an individual and social good, one of which Mill would have approved. However, mRNA injections involve a novel technology which resets fundamental physiological processes. Novel mRNA vaccines upset balance throughout the body, including our circulatory, reproductive, and respiratory systems. The blood-brain barrier and the placenta are breached, and the heart and mind are affected.
The solely pharmaceutical paradigm of health could be out of place in the adverse effect post-pandemic landscape. Those damaged by mRNA adverse reactions are facing an uphill struggle to source effective treatments and meaningful compensation. Reportedly some adverse effect sufferers are being offered additional risky experimental ‘remedies’.
In the USA, the drug Humira, an immune system suppressant sometimes used in the treatment of Crohn’s disease, has been offered to some. Humira’s label highlights the risk of serious infections leading to hospitalization or death, including TB, bacterial sepsis, invasive fungal infections and infections due to opportunistic pathogens. It also features cancers, notably lymphoma and hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma. Other warnings listed on Humira’s label include severe allergic reactions, hepatitis b reactivation, neurological reactions, blood reactions, worsening congestive heart failure and lupus-like syndrome—out of the frying pan into the fire.
Some of these adverse reactions sound depressingly similar to those which can follow mRNA vaccination. There is a reason for this. Humira belongs to a class of medicines called biologic drugs. It is made from a synthetic (bioengineered) antibody. It belongs to a group of medicines called ‘anti-TNF’ drugs or therapies. This is because it works by suppressing a protein in the body called TNF-alpha (tumour necrosis factor-alpha). Your body naturally produces TNF-alpha as part of its immune response, in order to help fight infections by temporarily causing inflammation in affected areas.
In other words, Humira takes over control of our natural immune response by blocking a key pathway in the chain of events which originates with the DNA to RNA transfer of information. Sound familiar? We need to exit from a biotechnology paradigm which seeks to re-engineer the relationship between our DNA and the immune system it orchestrates—a relationship we depend on every second of the day.
The ultimate sources of mental balance, of philanthropy, kindness, security, understanding, and happiness are no doubt tied to our bodily processes. If these are irreversibly altered, recovering from social polarisation might be difficult, but history records remarkable regeneration following great ups and downs. It is perhaps right to assume that such will eventually be the case.
However, if we are to secure our individual and collective future, we will need to wake up from our fatal fascination with an exclusively pharmaceutical dream of health—it is becoming a nightmare. We need Global Legislation Outlawing Biotechnology Experimentation—GLOBE. We have no desire to be lab rats or drug addicts.
Do you ever get the sense that your favorite steak at that Quick Service Restaurant of your choice keeps getting thinner and thinner all while your check size at the end of the night continues getting larger and larger. Well, it is.
How else are publicly traded chains going to continue to deliver margin growth to wall street in the midst of rising labor costs, rising commodity costs and shrinking customer traffic?
As a study in the U.K. just revealed, shrinking portion sizes among food manufacturers is actually way more common than you might think and you probably never even noticed it. In fact, according to data from the Office for National Statistics, over 2,500 consumer products in the U.K. shrunk in size over the past five years despite being sold for the same price.
But it’s not just food manufacturers that are shrinking portions while maintaining price as many consumers goods items from chocolate to coffee to toilet paper are all experiencing the same trends.
Bayer has been in the news recently (rightfully so) for – you guessed it – poisoning the planet. We have stood against Bayer/Monsanto for twenty years and it’s high time they stand accountable for their planetary injustice.
What you likely didn’t hear is that Bayer/Monsanto has been systematically undercutting science and making large investments to build propaganda that attacks organizations like IRT, GM Watch, NonGMO Project, and other non-GMO activists.
In a 2019 Huff Post article, Bayer stated they, “no longer provided support for the Genetic Literacy Project” – a misinformation website designed to produce content devaluing other scientific studies which are not pro-GMO.
The article (again dated in 2019) points out how Bayer leveraged its many resources to suppress evidence of the health and environmental damage caused by glyphosate and challenged the World Health Organization’s determination that it’s probably “cancer-causing.”
During the Monsanto trials, a secret company email targeted our founder Jeffrey Smith. The subject line was “Whack-a-Mole,” an internal Monsanto joke about how they attack those who expose the true dangers of their products. They even had a large budget-item called “Let Nothing Go,” funding used to suppress all evidence that GMOs, glyphosate, and Gene Editing cause dangerous side effects. Jeffrey’s extensive reporting over two decades was one of their familiar targets.
Their lies and attacks continue. The latest is pretending that gene edited GMOs are safe. And they’ve paid all sorts of organizations and scientists to repeat the lie. Tragically, numerous governments have been tricked, and now allow gene edited GMOs to be introduced into our food supply and environment without any safety checks or even notifying regulators This poses an unprecedented threat to each of us, and future generations. The time to act is now.
As Britain and the Commonwealth celebrate the Queen’s birthday this weekend ….
“Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is one of the world’s richest women, worth £17 billion. Her investments in the arms trade include firms that produce the uranium used in depleted uranium (DU) shells. The deployment of these shells by the US military in its attack on the Iraqi city of Fallujah in 2004 is believed to be the cause of a huge increase in cases of cancer and birth defects.”
Jacinda Adern likes to play pretend that we are all going to be driving electric cars (or at least those who have not been eliminated or forced into poverty) without once asking the question where all this electricity is going to come from.
The answer is either COAL or the economy will be collapsed (and NOT ONLY from attacks on the farming industry).
Today I give you the true story about how modern medicine became the only show in town. This is an important lesson to know, because it will help you to understand the business of medicine better, and the unsavory and corrupt beginnings of our current system of medicine.
When you are sick and go to the doctor, you take it for granted that you are going to the person who knows what to do to help you get better. When the doctor diagnoses what your problem is, and then pulls out his or her prescription pad and writes you a prescription for a drug that will take care of the problem, you then feel relieved.
But how would you feel if the doctor’s prescription was for an herbal or homeopathic remedy, or instead of a prescription the doctor gave you nutritional advice, and/or performed acupuncture on you?
These days, you might like this second scenario better. With the growing popularity of integrative medicine, more and more people are embracing a holistic model of medicine. But not too long ago, there were no choices, and any health provider who didn’t practice the modern medicine approach was labeled a quack and run out of town as soon as possible.
Modern medicine often calls itself “Traditional Medicine,” and other systems of medicine “Alternative.” But modern medicine has been around a little over 100 years, while traditional medical systems such as Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine have been around a few thousand years. Even more recent medical systems have been around as long or longer than modern medicine—Homeopathy has been around over 200 years; and Chiropractic and Naturopathic medicine have been around over 100 years. And of course, people have been using herbs and dietary remedies since the beginning of recorded history.
So how did it come to be that modern medicine grabbed such a stronghold on the field of healing, essentially becoming a monopoly called Health, Incorporated?

Here’s a recent headline to ponder from the Beltway-buzzy Axios: “The sovereign state of Facebook vs. the world.” The sovereign state of Facebook? Did we miss something there? Did we miss that moment when Facebook became a country and joined the United Nations?
The power and dominance of social media has created a power base that the combined military might of multiple nations cannot match, and to that point, Facebook is beginning to look on itself as a sovereign nation. When a tech company can silence a sitting United States president, that is a whole lot of power.
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4 (KJB)
In case you have not been following the global trends, and we are happy to keep an end time eye on that for you, social media is the way the whole world communicates, and it is unprecedented in the annals of human history. When you add to that that nearly all social media is owned by Liberals who use their platforms to create and change public opinion, you have a weapon that even Adolf Hitler didn’t have access to, and he was able to start WWII.
This film follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz’s help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz’s groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron’s story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.
Gates’ business strategies were called into question in 1998 & Microsoft was sued for anti-trust violations. An eighteen months long trial. Anti competitive & exclusionary practices designed to maintain its monopoly in personal computer operating systems. Gates then went on to spend on a repackaging campaign to see himself viewed globally as a ‘philanthropist’. Do watch James Corbett’s ‘Who is Bill Gates?’ an expose of Gates’ history. It’s far from philanthropic.
A clear case in my opinion of disgruntled dentists being denied their bloated profits. Their prices are so high people just can’t afford them. It’s why they head off to other countries to get their dental work done, the fares & treatment still costing less than local charges. Covid’s put paid to that of course. In this case the woman’s only technical ‘crime’ if you like was to take the impressions (ie putting her fingers in patients’ mouths thereby risking health). WINZ however saw fit to sign her up and use her skills for their clients. Now MOH is prosecuting her. The MOH showed up in an unannounced raid, treating her like a criminal. The MOH is of course a corporation, being a ‘subsidiary’ of the NZ corporation (your ‘government’ in case you didn’t know) … it is guarding dental profits. Remember, they threatened to prosecute retired Dr Charles Baycroft for caring about NZers’ health, which is all this dear woman was doing. Watch the video in the article and see all the people she’s helped to smile again. Huge kudos to her. And thumbs down to the MOH. EWR
Dozens of people have turned out to a hui in Northland to show their support for a woman facing charges over claims she made hundreds of dentures without certification.
Kaikohe woman Claire Wihongi-Matene – known by locals as the “tooth fairy” – is facing seven charges brought by the Ministry of Health – one charge of claiming to be a health practitioner and six charges of performing a restricted activity.
The 40-year-old mother of five faces up to $190,000 in fines and is awaiting trial.
Wihongi-Matene has a fine arts degree and 10 years of experience making and repairing dentures in labs in Auckland and Hamilton. Her clients say she charged about a third of the price of dentists.
“My tupuna (ancestors) were tohunga (healers) – they helped heal people – and so I believe I was blessed with the ability to be able to help people and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do,” she told The Hui.

This year’s presidential election is not for the faint of heart. In fact, over the past several months, mental health professionals have noted a significant uptick in anxiety and emotional distress related directly to today’s elections.
According to a survey1,2 by the American Psychology Association (APA) published October 7, 2020, 68% of Americans say the upcoming elections are a significant source of stress. Those with chronic health conditions are faring the worst, with 71% reporting feeling stressed about the elections, compared to 64% of those who do not have a chronic health condition.
A clear majority, 77% (up from 66% in 2019), also say they worry about the country’s future, and 71% say this is the lowest point in U.S. history that they can remember. As noted by the APA, uncertainty tends to foster stress, so it’s important to focus on the things that you do have control over. Recommendations provided include:
Avoid ruminating on worst-case scenarios
Engage in meaningful activities
Stay socially connected
Stay physically active
Revealing government and industry corruption as it impacts our personal health and security has been part of my educational mission since I started this newsletter. It has been my observation that such corruption invariably and inevitably ends up harming people’s ability to take control of their health.
Sadly, the problems have gotten progressively larger and more pervasive despite these attempts. Now, with the rollout of a clever technocratic agenda under the guise of COVID-19 pandemic responses, the depth and breadth of the problem is becoming more readily apparent, and it’s probably more disturbing than anything we’ve previously seen.
It doesn’t matter if the wrongdoers are Democrats or Republicans, my chief aim has always been to identify the root cause of the problem, which is that the United States is largely run by corporations, to the detriment of us all. The censorship implemented by Big Tech in the last couple of years is a strategy to spread their technocratic narrative and implement even further restrictions of our freedoms and personal liberty.
Today, we find ourselves struggling to access crucial information about topics that have significant bearing on our health and our lives: information about SARS-CoV-2’s origin and COVID-19 treatments being just two of many examples.
Despite all of that, I urge you to foster optimism toward the future and how we can use our individual power to collectively foster positive change — regardless of the outcome of the U.S. presidential election.
The US Has Become a Corporate Oligarchy
Unfortunately, positions of power have always attracted people who most want that power, and today we have many morally flawed people working in a corrupt government.
The goal of the technocratic agenda is to continue concentrating power at the global level. Ultimately, the goal is to take power away from the individual and concentrate it at the highest level possible, in the hands of unelected leaders. It’s really all about controlling the global population.
In a 2014 study,3 two political scientists explained that the U.S. is really an oligarchy, not a democracy, with the wealthiest elites in American society wielding the most control over the issues Congress and the White House ultimately take action on.
Career politicians and the allowance of massive corporate political contributions ensure this oligarchy will be a dominant force everyone needs to be aware of. Now, however, we’re starting to realize that it’s even worse than that. There’s an even greater power grab at work.
Ultimately, the technocratic plan is to govern society through technology, programmed by scientists and technicians and automated through the use of artificial intelligence, rather than through democratically elected politicians and government leaders.
Ultimately, the technocratic plan is to govern society through technology, programmed by scientists and technicians and automated through the use of artificial intelligence, rather than through democratically elected politicians and government leaders.
It is an alarming plan, once you begin to wrap your mind around it in its entirety, but it’s crucial to remember that only a fearful public can allow the technocratic elite to dictate our future and rip away our personal freedoms. It’s fear itself that allows tyranny to flourish. There are more of us than there are of them, but enough of us must be willing to stand up and say no, we won’t accept this plan.
Fortunately, scientists, lawyers, medical professionals and academics are increasingly recognizing that the deliberate fear-mongering that has kept the COVID-19 pandemic alive now threatens to replace democracy with “fascist totalitarian models” of government, and more are now trying to speak out and inform others. In Germany, a Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee4,5 is also preparing the biggest class-action lawsuit in history6,7,8,9 to expose the COVID-19 fraud.
Media, Big Tech and the Military-Industrial Complex
As noted in my interview with investigative journalist Whitney Webb this past Sunday, “the line between Silicon Valley and the national security state has become so blurred, you really can’t distinguish where one begins and what were the other ends.” Media also play a crucial role in this scheme, as they are refusing to report the truth about what’s happening, and won’t lay out the ramifications of going along with the various plans currently being introduced.
As just one example, in my interview with Webb, she describes the undisclosed implications of Operation Warp Speed, a program funded and operated primarily by the CIA and the U.S. military. It’s not just about the rapid creation of therapeutics and vaccines for COVID-19. The program includes a whole lot more than that, and appears to be a key component of a new biosurveillance system in which our very biology is being monitored and capitalized upon.
All of this is of course in addition to all the other conflicts of interest that have permeated our society, such as agricultural policies that feed into the agendas of Big Pharma and the pesticide industry.
The media has also been consolidated — to the point that 90% of what you read in newspapers, magazines and see on TV is now controlled by six media giants.10 This consolidation allows for tremendous influence on all matters, and has led to censorship being more the rule than the exception.
True unbiased, in-depth investigative journalism has joined the hairy-nosed wombat as an incredibly rare and near-extinct species, and you’d be wise to not swallow whole everything you read in mainstream media.
American internet giants have also proven themselves to be a core part of the U.S. surveillance apparatus, as detailed in “Harvard Professor Exposes Surveillance Capitalism.” Big Data is the new Big Oil, and Google leads the pack as a key data mining operation, and data mining is a crucial component of technocracy.
Without this vast data stream, the plan simply cannot work. This is why I’ve been urging everyone to eliminate Google and Facebook from your life. There are now plenty of alternatives that are not engaged in massive personal data mining and theft.
Don’t Panic — Refocus
Regardless of who wins the presidency, please realize that your power as an individual lies in your day-to-day decisions, and that no matter who bears the title of president of the United States, the corporate influence will remain, as will the threat of the technocratic agenda.
Also realize that creating divisiveness among people is part of a carefully orchestrated plan that works in the oligarchy’s favor, so we really need to get smarter about how we engage in the political process and avoid falling for their carefully constructed and sophisticated propaganda that limit us from having any really hopeful choices.
As long as we’re at each other’s throats over things we have little or no control over, it distracts us from analyzing and addressing the underlying system that is creating the problems in the first place. So, let people have their opinion, whether we’re talking about political or presidential candidates, because these are all false choices anyway.
Ultimately, controlling interests are writing the laws and paying the politicians to pass them. But knowledge is power, so use your knowledge to take control. I believe it’s crucial to understand where the technocrats are trying to take us, so if you haven’t read through the articles I linked to earlier, consider going through them.
Avoid Victim Mentality by Realizing Where Your Power Lies
The power of the individual is alive and well, even in this deeply flawed system, and even in the face of growing totalitarianism. It becomes yours by stepping outside of the system with every decision and purchase you make.
With every action you take, you also set the example for others to follow, thereby making you a change-agent within your own small circle of family, friends and acquaintances. In the end, our collective actions will create the changes that are so desperately needed, and thinking locally will eventually have a global effect, not just in terms of commerce, but in terms of safeguarding our constitutional rights as well.
It’s important to realize that the only reason technocracy has not yet been able to overtake the U.S. — although they’re getting incredibly close — is because of our Constitution. This is why we must fight to protect our Constitution at all costs. One of the most effective ways to do this is through grassroots movements and getting involved in local politics.
What the technocrats are doing is making an end run around national sovereignty. Rather than a frontal assault on the system, which has never been successful, they’re simply eroding national sovereignty piece by piece. In “The Pressing Dangers of Technocracy” (hyperlinked above), American constitutionalist Patrick Wood reviews what we can do to save our republic and thwart the steady march of technocracy:
“I believe very strongly that local activism is the only way to rebuild our country, if there is going to be any rebuilding at all. Local activism — because this is how they got us. They built [the technocratic system] from the bottom up. We cannot tear their house down from the top down. It’s simply is just not going to happen. They’re too powerful.
There is no national government or any element of national government that’s going to save us from these technocrats and technocracy. There’s no state government, either, or local government, the way it stands now, unless that local government gets influenced and populated by people who know better and who are willing to tell these others:
‘Go away, you don’t belong here. This is not the way we’re going to run our community, our town, our city,’ whatever it is, and we have access to those people.”
“This is a crucial time in American history, and we actually have a peaceful and effective solution to it. The only thing that needs to happen is your local officials, especially your sheriff, keep [their] oath of office. That’s the only thing he has to do … The sheriff is here to protect your civil liberties, your God given rights.”
If enough people get involved and make sure they elect sheriffs who follow the Constitution, we can create Constitutional counties and take back America, county by county, one sheriff at a time.
Eventually, all the police forces will be on the same page as well, and will no longer enforce unlawful, unconstitutional orders, whatever they may be, including unconstitutional mask and vaccination mandates. Another way you can have a significant impact is by getting personally involved in local government.
Aside from those two key areas of influence, remember the industries that are currently buying our politicians and writing their own laws cannot maintain power without your ongoing support. While we may not have a significant choice in how our tax contributions are distributed to these industries through subsidies and contracts, we do have a very powerful influence by making responsible purchases each and every day.
Withdraw your financial support by not buying what they’re selling (or using their product if it’s free, such as Google and Facebook, where your personal data is what they make their money on) and you automatically redistribute financial power to more benevolent businesses that are aligned with your core principles.
An example of this is when you buy locally-grown foods from an organic farmer. You’re empowering that farmer to continue growing foods for the community that support environmental regeneration and human health, and you’re disempowering the big junk food manufacturers that wield undue influence over agricultural policy. This is how you wield your collective power, and the decisions each of us make every day therefore matter.
Realize ‘Left Versus Right’ Is a False Narrative
We should not play the game and choose to be part of this false narrative of “left versus right,” or “Democrat versus Republican.” Technocracy is not a political system and it does not belong to or support either side. It is an economic system based on technological control and digital surveillance.
Most people are still trapped in the mindset of opposition and there are great people across the board that need to come together. Readers of Mercola.com are split almost evenly between those identifying as Republican or Democrat, and working collectively has produced tremendous results by strategically organizing consumer marketplace pressure.
We must keep in mind that it is the concentration and accumulation of power that is a clear and present danger to our individual rights, and that this accumulation of power is attracting the worst kinds of people who seek control and power.
To learn more about how a tiny minority of people, the ultra-wealthy elite, have caused a majority of the environmental, financial and health challenges currently facing us, see my recent interview with Vandana Shiva, Ph.D., featured in “Oneness Versus the 1%.”
Food Independence Is Key to Other Forms of Independence
It’s time to dissent, to step out of the globalist technocratic system. I’ve already listed some key ways to do that: Get involved in local government; focus on getting a constitutional sheriff; and buy or use products made by companies whose core values align with your own and don’t further the technocratic agenda of totalitarian control.
Another key area of focus would be your food. If you cannot grow your own, then get to know the farmer that can. Keep your money in your community; the closer the better. Kissinger said it best:11 “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.”
If you don’t like the state of the nation (or the world), stop eating processed and ultra-processed junk foods. Some may initially think this decision would have nothing to do with anything that is wrong in the world, but if you give it some thought, you’ll realize that the more independence you gain with your food, the more independence you will create in other areas as well.
Because food is such a potent form of control, breaking that control mechanism will have a ripple effect that extends outward into many other industries and fields of activity, including the political arena.
Food is important for another reason too. We now know that insulin resistance is a key risk factor for severe COVID-19 and death. Since diet-related comorbidities are responsible for 94% of all COVID-19-related deaths, taking control of your diet is a simple, common-sense strategy to lower the risks associated with this infection.
Break the Chains of Control
So, instead of fretting about the election, use it as motivation to step into your personal power, and join the revolution to create independence and break the chains of control.
Sooner or later everyone must decide which is more important: personal liberty or false security? The good news is that many are in fact starting to see the writing on the wall and starting to choose liberty over brutal totalitarianism in the name of public health.
Bioterrorism is now used to keep us in fear, and fear is what allows the technocrats to implement their agenda. Part of the answer, therefore, is to educate yourself about this supposed threat. In previous articles, I’ve addressed the importance of outing and pushing back against biowarfare research.
I’ve also reviewed data showing this pandemic really isn’t something to fear, as the lethality of this virus is no greater than that of seasonal influenza. I’ve also covered many prevention and treatment strategies that have shown tremendous success. At the end of the day, the more knowledgeable you are, the less fearful you’ll be.
At the start, Jacques prompts me to say, have a pen and paper ready, stating not to believe all that he says. That he too, is endeavouring to work it all out, through intense research into old records and books on the web etc all about the ‘forgotten past. Saying that we have no understanding or even knowledge of what has come to pass. Because things are not as they are and as a researcher of both historical events as well as new technologies that are released on today’s society, we can not necessarily believe the status quo. It starts with Tim mentioning his interview 5 weeks ago of Dan Hermansen – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guzOg… – and the United Tribes flag of 1835 in early NZ, keeping Aotearoa NZ ‘as a free country’ and that King William the lV would have Great Britain protect it. However that flag was cunningly displaced by the Union Jack at the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, in 1840 – that contrary to what the Maori chiefs were aware of, New Zealand basically became a colony of Great Britain. Hence Hone Heke, the first Maori chief, to sign this Treaty, cut down the flag staff 4 times due to his disgust in which this Treaty was being administered. That then, in the comments field of Dan’s interview was this – ‘The Auckland City Council is a Corporation listed on Dun and Bradstreet – So Tim did a web search and we find it in Wiki’ – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dun_%26… Also mentioned early in this interview was the British East India Company because it was an overseas extension of the British Government and was in many cases a ‘law unto itself’ where it cunningly introduced opium into China in 1825 that soon after, the Chinese addiction to opium expanded (to 4-12 million people). So this opens the question who was this Company and who governed it? As they had no apparent conscience. Yet, its flag was an ensign that was accepted by the British Government and Admiralty. Adjusted for inflation, at its height, the company was worth $4.1 trillion. (Oct 17, 2018) other searches suggest $7.9 trillion. Jacques, says he has worked for the Central Government in South Africa and in Local Government here in NZ and is horrified at what he believes to have found! Stating there are 2 fundamentals that are universal as it relates to the Law; in this case British Law. They are: 1) Contracts 2) Jurisdictions Fundamentally all law is a contract A contract aims to control the behaviour / actions of two or more parties. Shortly after Jacques was born, the legal system in South Africa impelled his Dad to sign him away as a bonded surety to a ‘bankrupt franchise.’ Note that South Africa was part of the British Commonwealth until 1961 and rejoined again in 1994. Unbeknown to his Father, while he thought he was doing the right thing, apparently registering Jaques birth, and signing the birth certificate, was actually signing a contract; He made Jacques the surety to a bond in the ALL CAPITALS fictional name that the corporation had created to enslave Jacques for the rest of his life. This Corporation? This will come later … ALL CAPITALS you ask? Yes, they use what is called Dog Latin, which is capitals or block letters. By the way, Dog Latin was used to trick and deceive back in the days when serfs could not understand what the more educated were able to control how Law was administered. Note The Latin alphabet started out as uppercase serifed letters known as Roman square capitals. Ancient Greek started off this way too. And it seems the legacy continues to this day; In the English language all capital writing is not a proper noun; A proper noun is the name of a man or woman, place or physical thing; That all capitalised name is not a proper noun and therefore not a name; For example a name used for an individual person, place, or organisation, spelled with an initial capital letter, e.g. Jane, London, and Greenpeace. Often contrasted with common nouns. Is it a lawful contract? No, because his Dad was never given full disclosure of what he was actually signing; So the birth certificates of everyone are traded on the capital markets and heaps of money is made from them, according to Karen Hudes, former World Bank lawyer. (do your own research). ‘Everyone includes people who are born in countries like NZ, Australia – and very possibly Canada, and the USA plus UK. Is India and Pakistan? Research it. The Corporation establishes how much tax the child will pay over his or her lifetime and that birth certificate / bond is then traded on the capital markets; Who is this Corporation and why does it trick parents into doing this? The answer to the why question is easy; control and trillions of dollars; But there is also a sinister reason, which he will come to later. https://www.ourplanet.org/greenplanet…
Two excellent videos from Corbett. James Corbett adds the missing pieces in the world government puzzle. These really are a must watch. Don’t be put off by ‘oil’ … Corbett traces a meticulously researched, intricate & largely hidden chain of events that start with oil & end with education, health, medicine, food, banking, you name it …. bringing perfect clarity to today’s events. EWR
TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=16888 From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the oil industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.
TRANSCRIPT AND MP3: http://www.corbettreport.com/bigoil The 20th century was the century of oil. From farm to fork, factory to freeway, there is no aspect of our modern life that has not been shaped by the oil industry. But as the “post-carbon” era of the 21st century comes into view, there are those who see this as the end of the oiligarchy. They couldn’t be more wrong. This is the remarkable true story of the world that Big Oil is creating, and how they plan to bring it about.
Deal with the devil: Monsanto PAID Google to CENSOR search results, discredit journalists
(Natural News) If you’ve ever wondered why there isn’t more outrage over the dangers of pesticides and herbicides, even as environmental consciousness seems to be rising, the answer is simple: Manufacturers like Monsanto have entire departments devoted to discrediting journalists who expose their corrupt ways and paying off Google to censor search results.
Note well we’ve tolerated this virus for many years & as the meme says, we still don’t hear a lot about it. Nor do we hear the truth about why this is ignored. Compare with the CV figures which are minuscule by comparison. Have you noticed also when these nations have a disaster happen, these helpful folk from the so called ‘developed’ nations show up with vaccines!! (Article continues below the meme).
In the comments under this on Facebook came one of those predictable replies … “They need to feed these people with no food birth control I thought of that strategy when I was 6yrs old. If they didn’t have babies to starve to death then that would end that problem” … the mainstream lie we’ve been fed for years and years. Below is information copied from our ‘Resources’ page that debunks the ignorance of comments like the above which always make my blood boil. If you read all the freely downloadable resources linked to, you will see my point. Please also note the role in the perpetuation of this lie, that of the eugenics movement (Bill Gates’ father was involved, as also is Bill who clearly advocates depopulation). This movement can no longer shamelessly promote its ‘theory’ that various strains of humanity need to be expunged (themselves excluded) so it has reinvented itself under the guise of ‘too many people on the planet and not enough resources’ hence we have ‘Family Planning’. Don’t be fooled. On that topic (Gates and his ilk) watch James Corbett’s exposé of that here. Note also, we are also being told I read today, that we need to restrict ourselves to one child only. Getting quite fascist isn’t it?

Who Owns the World: The Hidden Facts Behind Landownership
“Discloses for the first time the world’s 1,000 top individual landowners and the top 1,000 corporate owners, and brings to the fore the political and economic consequences of ownership.”
Who Owns the World: The Surprising Truth About Every Piece of Land on the Planet
“You don’t have to be a student of geography or cartography to have an interest in the world around you, especially with globalization making our planet seem smaller than ever. Now you can IM someone in Alaska, purchase coffee beans from Timor-Leste, and visit Dubai. But what do we really know about these lands?
Who Owns the World presents the results of the first-ever landownership survey of all 197 states and 66 territories of the world, and reveals facts both startling and eye-opening. You’ll learn that: Only 15% of the world’s population lays claim to landownership, and that landownership in too few hands is probably the single greatest cause of poverty. Queen Elizabeth II owns 1/6 of the entire land surface on earth (nearly 3 times the size of the U.S.). The Lichtenstein royal family is wealthier than the Grimaldis of Monaco. 80% of the American population is crammed in urban areas. The least crowded state is Alaska, with 670 acres per person. The most crowded is New Jersey, with .7 acres per person. 60% of America’s population are property owners. That’s behind the UK (69% homeownership).
With its relevance to contemporary issues and culture, Who Owns the World makes for fascinating reading. Both entertaining and educational, it provides cocktail party conversation for years to come and is guaranteed to change the way you view the U.S. and the world.”
Among many similar globalist states, The UK State is a public-private partnership between government, financial institutions, multinational corporations, global think tanks, and well funded third sector organisations, such as so called non governmental organisations (NGO’s) and large international charities. Through a labyrinthine structure of direct funding, grant making and philanthropy, the UK State is a cohesive globalist organisation that works with selected academics, scientific institutions and mainstream media (MSM) outlets to advance a tightly controlled, predetermined narrative. This designed consensus serves the the interests and global ambitions of a tiny group of disproportionately wealthy people.
This appeared in my feed today. As the person who shared it said…”I hope everyone is enjoying their sanitized masks”. A point to ponder. I have no idea what country this hails from but I dare say they are paid pennies per day for their tireless, unrewarding slave labour… yet another blot on the books of the corporates and their corporations that use and abuse with impunity. They will be making top dollar from this forced labour. It’s the way corporations work. And yes we hope there’s no virus we might catch on the floor or anywhere else there…. especially on the masks. Remember, corporations also lie without conscience. They are fined regularly for this, the fines are out weighed by the monetary rewards for sales. It’s how they roll. So are you noticing any holes in the narrative people? (No pun intended) EWR
No surprises really. They’ve made it no secret they have a reset planned & they want rid of cash. EWR
“The United States printed more money in June than in the first two centuries after its founding,” Morehead wrote. “Last month the U.S. budget deficit — $864 billion — was larger than the total debt incurred from 1776 through the end of 1979.”
