From the beginning of this crisis many have been pointing out that there are two mutually contradictory messages at the heart of the covid19 rollout, and, just as Orwell describes in 1984, a major point of the exercise seems to be to get people to believe both at the same time. 1. Be very afraid. 2. There is nothing to fear.
In actuality the virus is only dangerous to the most vulnerable in the population. So they are the ones who need to be cautious, but healthy people need to go on living. In the meanwhile all this knee jerk reaction to a virus less threatening than this years flu has ruined our economy.
You have to stop and wonder was this a contrived response to bring about changes which would have never happened under ordinary circumstances. Everyone is having to remote work or not work at all. Many essential personnel now scurry about to maintain a very sluggish supply chain.
Cash is frowned upon, that nasty germ laden stuff. Of course it’s always been that way, yet suddenly through germaphobic eyes, it looks somehow more dangerous. This would seem to the casual observer to be trending toward a more digital solution. Was that the plan all along.
Our socio-economic system looks very Orwellian. We have mom and pop businesses, including independent truckers, going out of business by the handfuls daily. So in the end there will be only big corporations selling us what we need. And of course it’s looking more like nothing will return to any sort of normalcy until the big shot in the arm is given to all.
Some say that the inoculation is the answer. Some say that it will be the end of mankind. All the lemmings are at the very edge of the cliff right now. Pockets of them are decrying resistance here and there. It’s really hard to organize with that six foot distance thing and those masks make it hard to get enough oxygen to their brains to think about what’s really going on here.
Oh come on this is the digital age, right? We need to make strides in getting everything online. God forbid that we would have to monitor our appliances and adjust thermostats in our homes. We need everything computerized. Everything and everyone! We need self driving cars and replicated food and all those obsolete ideas of creating and growing things with our own hands are old hat and should be thrown on the trash heap, right? Welcome to the age of the cyborgs. Interesting, isn’t it?
This is about a young man named Jacob as told on Facebook by his mother:
His work had a mandatory flu shot that he went and got Thursday. By Friday morning Dr. Beiser picked him up at the house and took him to his clinic and ran some test on him. Then this morning we had to rush him to the Emergency Room. Now we just have to wait and see what happens. Hopefully medicine will cure it.
It’s not good Dr. Ervin Seamster said he has a brain virus and has amnesia he could possibly die within 24 hours if medicine doesn’t take a hold. We’re doing everything we can possibly do for him at this moment. Yes please keep us in your prayers for a fast recovery.
I don’t know if the flu shot has caused this or not. But it sure seems like it. He has lost a lot of memory and he still can’t remember anything from one minute to the next.
Jacob is home resting now he was awake most of the night. He has lost a lot of his memory and he was very stressed last night about his job. He remembers he had a job but he struggled remembering who he worked for. He remembers he runs electrical wires and he uses tools. But he’s very nervous about going back to work because he doesn’t remember anything else about what his job is. He doesn’t remember how to do his job. Please keep Jacob in your prayers that he regains his memory, his strength, and his health.

There are numerous studies measuring the benefits of magnets to improve the quality of life. Speaking in general terms, most studies showed 65 to 75 percent of the people studied recognized benefits from magnets. There were a smaller number of people on placebos that also recognized benefits. And in general about 25 percent of the people could not recognize any benefits. However there are cases where people could not recognize the benefits until they were off the study for a week and immediately purchased magnetic jewelry to regain the benefits of magnetic therapy. The benefits are subtle and every one has a different pain level. We suspect in many cases people don’t recognize the benefits because they are expecting more immediate and dramatic results. However we recognize that some people do not benefit from magnetic therapy. Following are some summaries of the many studies observed.
Mon Oct 20, 5:38 PM ET
WASHINGTON – The government has approved the first noninvasive brain stimulator to treat depression — a device that beams magnetic pulses through the skull.
If it sounds like science-fiction, well, those woodpecker-like pulses trigger small electrical charges that spark brain cells to fire. Yet it doesn’t cause the risks of surgically implanted electrodes or the treatment of last resort, shock therapy.
Called transcranial magnetic stimulation or TMS, this gentler approach isn’t for everyone. The Food and Drug Administration approved Neuronetics Inc.’s NeuroStar therapy specifically for patients who had no relief from their first antidepressant, offering them a different option than trying pill after pill.
“We’re opening up a whole new area of medicine,” says Dr. Mark George of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, who helped pioneer use of TMS in depression. “There’s a whole field now that’s moving forward of noninvasive electrical stimulation of the brain.”
While there’s a big need for innovative approaches — at least one in five depression patients is treatment-resistant — the question is just how much benefit TMS offers.
The FDA cleared the prescription-only NeuroStar based on data that found patients did modestly better when treated with TMS than when they unknowingly received a sham treatment that mimicked the magnet. It was a study fraught with statistical questions that concerned the agency’s own scientific advisers.
For a more clear answer, the National Institutes of Health has an independent study under way now that tracks 260 patients and may have initial results as early as next year.
Quantifying the benefit is key, considering the price tag. TMS is expected to cost $6,000 to $10,000, depending on how many treatments a patient needs, says Dr. Philip Janicak of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, who helped lead the NeuroStar study. That’s far more expensive than medication yet thousands of dollars cheaper than invasive depression devices.
Neuroscientists have been using TMS for years as a research tool in brain studies. Zap a powerful magnet over a certain spot on the head — where motion is controlled — and someone’s arm can suddenly, involuntarily, lash out. Beyond the “wow” factor, magnetized pulses were triggering brain activity.
The question was how to harness that activity in a way that might improve disease. TMS also is being studied in stroke rehabilitation and other brain disorders.
“Nobody thought this would work; it was a crazy idea. I had to do it at 6 in the morning before the real scientists came in,” South Carolina’s George laughs as he recalls work he began in 1993.
But, “the brain is an electrical organ,” George adds, explaining the rationale. “Electricity is the currency of the brain. It’s how the brain does what it does.”
For depression, psychiatrists aim the magnet at the left front of the head, the prefrontal cortex. Since everyone’s brain is different, they first zap the top of the head to find a patient’s motor-control region, and then carefully move 5 centimeters forward. Then, the NeuroStar beams about 3,000 pulses a minute during a 40-minute treatment, done about five times a week for up to six weeks.
The theory: Stimulating brain cells in the prefrontal cortex triggers a chain reaction that also stimulates deeper brain regions involved with mood
TMS did prove to be very safe: Patients in the NeuroStar study suffered no seizures or memory problems like shock therapy can cause, or other reactions throughout the body. The chief complaint from the sessions was headaches.
The FDA cleared the device after focusing just on a subset of the patients initially enrolled — 164 who had failed one antidepressant during their current bout of depression, not those who were more severely treatment-resistant.
What’s a modest benefit? About 24 percent who got TMS scored significantly better on standard depression measures after six weeks, compared with 12 percent who got the sham, says Janicak. That’s about as well as patients respond to a single antidepressant, he says.
Some reported remarkable improvement.
“One day it was like a light switch went off,” says Steve Newman, 60, of Washington, D.C., who enrolled in the NeuroStar study at the University of Pennsylvania in 2005.
Newman had suffered repeated bouts of depression since he was a teenager, and drug after drug barely blunted it. He was considering shock therapy when he heard about TMS.
After two weeks of treatment, Newman was wondering if he was getting the sham — when suddenly, he started feeling lots better, and doctors spotted a corresponding major improvement in his depression measurements.
“I was awake. I was there,” says Newman who said he still gets what he calls a “maintenance dose” of TMS about once a month.
MAGNETIC DISCS COULD KILL CANCER CELLS
PARIS (AFP) – Tiny magnetic discs just a millionth of a metre in diameter could be used to used to kill cancer cells, according to a study published on Sunday.
Laboratory tests found the so-called “nanodiscs”, around 60 billionths of a metre thick, could be used to disrupt the membranes of cancer cells, causing them to self-destruct.
The discs are made from an iron-nickel alloy, which move when subjected to a magnetic field, damaging the cancer cells, the report published in Nature Materials said.
One of the study’s authors, Elena Rozhlova of Argonne National Laboratory in the United States, said subjecting the discs to a low magnetic field for around ten minutes was enough to destroy 90 percent of cancer cells in tests.
In a commentary on the report, Jon Dobson of Keele University in Britain said antibodies could be used to direct the discs towards tumour cells.
“This provides an elegant and rapid technique for targeting tumour destruction without the side effects associated with systemic treatments such as chemotherapy,” Dobson wrote.
Efficacy of static magnetic field therapy in chronic pelvic pain: a double-blind pilot study.
Brown CS, Ling FW, Wan JY, Pilla AA.
Department of Pharmacy Practice and Pharmacoeconomics, University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, Memphis, USA. firstname.lastname@example.org
OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to determine the efficacy of static magnetic field therapy for the treatment of chronic pelvic pain (CPP) by measuring changes in pain relief and disability.
STUDY DESIGN: Thirty-two patients with CPP completed 2 weeks and 19 patients completed 4 weeks of randomized double-blind placebo-controlled treatment at a gynecology clinic. Active (500 G) or placebo magnets were applied to abdominal trigger points for 24 hour per day. The McGill Pain Questionnaire, Pain Disability Index, and Clinical Global Impressions Scale were outcome measures.
RESULTS: Patients receiving active magnets who completed 4 weeks of double-blind treatment had significantly lower Pain Disability Index (P <.05), Clinical Global Impressions-Severity (P <.05), and Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement (P <.01) scores than those receiving placebo magnets, but were more likely to correctly identify their treatment (P <.05).
CONCLUSION: SMF therapy significantly improves disability and may reduce pain when active magnets are worn continuously for 4 weeks in patients with CPP, but blinding efficacy is compromised.

Ist Dpt of Internal Medicine, Jessenius Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University, Martin, Slovakia. email@example.com
Therapeutic application of pulsatile electromagnetic field in disorders of motility is recently becoming more frequent. Despite this fact information about the effectiveness of this therapy in the literature are rare. The aim of this study was therefore the treatment of 576 patients who suffered from vertebral syndrome, gonarthritis and coxarthritis. For application of pulsatile electromagnetic field MTU 500H Therapy System was used. Pulsatile electromagnetic field had a frequency value of 4.5 mT in all studied groups and magnetic induction value 12.5-18.75 mT in the 1st group. In the 2nd group the intensity was 5.8-7.3 mT and in the 3rd group it was 7.6-11.4 mT. The time of inclination/declination in the 1st group was 20/60 ms, in the 2nd group 40/80 ms and in the 3rd group 40/90 ms. The electromagnetic field was applied during 10 days. In the 1st-3rd day during 20 minutes and in the 4th-10th day during 30 minutes. The therapy was repeated in every patient after 3 months with values of intensity higher by 50%. In the time of pulsatile electro-magnetotherapy the patients were without pharmacotherapy or other physiotherapy. The application of pulsatile electromagnetic field is a very effective therapy of vertebral syndrome, gonarthritis and coxarthritis. The results have shown that the therapy was more effective in patients suffering from gonarthrosis, than in patients with vertebral syndrome and least effective in patients with coxarthosis. Owing to regression of oedema and pain relief the motility of patients improved. (Tab. 3, Ref. 19.)

Biological effect of static magnetic field was investigated by using ferrite magnets to conduct a magnetic field exposure experiment on three species of bacteria: Streptococcus mutans, Staphylococcus aureus, and Escherichia coli. The effects were evaluated by culturing the bacteria and determining their growth rate, the maximum numbers of bacteria, and [3H]-thymidine incorporation. The results showed that the ferrite magnet caused strength-dependent decreases in the growth rate and growth maximum number of bacteria for S. mutans and S. aureus when cultured under anaerobic conditions, but that their growth was not inhibited under aerobic conditions. In addition, [3H]-thymidine was added after culturing each of the species of bacteria for 18 h. After that, culture was continued until 24 h, and changes in [3H]-thymidine incorporation were investigated. But no effect of the magnetic fields was detected. These findings suggested that oxygen related to growth the cases of S. mutans, S. aureus. However, no growth effects were detected on E. coli cultures.

CANCER AND CHEMOTHERAPY
Effect of magnetic fields on human and rodent cancer cell survival.
Tata, D., Vanhoutten, N., Brook, C., &TrItton T.
In a laboratory study, several rodent and human cancer cell types were exposed to permanent magnetic fields for one hour to determine what percent of the cells would survive compared to unexposed cells. The permanent magnetic field was extremely strong (11.6 Tesla = 116,000 gauss) and was generated by sophisticated equipment. Some of the surviving cell fractions included 25% for human breast carcinoma, 40% for human ovarian carcinoma, and 4% for human mouth carcinoma. Non-Invasive permanent magnetic field modality induces lethal effects on several rodent and human cancers.

The aim of the present study was to identify the effects of a static magnetic field (SMF) on rat brain structures that control autonomic functions, specifically heart rate and heart rhythmicity. The experiments were carried out on 44 male Wistar rats under ketamine-xylazine anesthesia. SMF was induced using samarium-cobalt fused magnets (20 x 20 x 10 mm in size) placed bitemporally. Magnetic induction intensity was 100 mT on the surface of the head. Duration of magnetic field application was 15 min. An electrocardiogram was recorded from limb lead II, and both heart rate (average duration of cardiac cycles) and heart rhythmicity were analyzed before and after SMF application. SMF evoked changes in both heart rate and rhythm in 80% of the animals; the predominant effects were bradycardia and disappearance of respiratory sinus arrhythmia. However, the effectiveness of SMF in large measure depends on both functional peculiarities and functional activities of brain autonomic centers.

Biochemical study of human periodontal ligament: preparation of cell attachment materials induced by pulsed electromagnetic fields.
Department of Oral Biochemistry, Kanagawa Dental College, Japan.
The periodontium, especially the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone, are tissues constantly subjected to physical stress such as occlusion and mastication. This study was designed to explore the effect of the pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) on the cell attachment and the spread of human periodontal ligament fibroblasts (HPLF) and rat osteoblasts (ROB). PEMF are categorized as one type of mechanical stress. HPLF were obtained by the explantation method described by Saito et al. They were then subcultured in Dulbecco’s modified Eagle’s medium (D-MEM) and supplemented with 2 mg/ml dialyzed fetal calf serum protein (FCSP), 50 micrograms/ml ascorbic acid and penicillin/streptomycin after trypsinization. ROB were isolated from a two-day-old rat calvaria by the sequential bacterial collagenase digestion method described by Dziak and Brand and were subcultured in D-MEM supplemented with FCSP, ascorbic acid and penicillin/streptomycin. After the confluent HPLF were cultured with serum-free MCDB 107 medium, the quiescent HPLF were exposed with or without PEMF for 24 hr. This was followed by the collection of the control conditioned medium (C-CM) and PEMF exposed conditioned medium (PEMF-CM). The cell attachment assay was performed so that the hydrophobic 24 multiwells were coated with the whole conditioned medium or fractionated conditioned medium by a PO-60K column. After coating, heat inactivated BSA blocked nonspecific sites for cell adhesion, and 3H-TdR labeled HPLF or ROB were cultured on the precoated wells. The activity of cell attachment and spreading was determined by the radioactivity of 3H-TdR using a scintillation counter. The characters of cell attachment factors derived from HPLF were hydrophobic, heat labile and proteolytic enzyme digestible. In addition, the fractionated PEMF-CM enhanced the spreading activity of ROB. PEMF induced the 10 KDa which can enhance the HPLF and ROB spreading. Therefore, the cell attachment and spreading factors secreted by human periodontal ligament fibroblasts exposed with pulsed electromagnetic fields may regulate human periodontal ligament fibroblasts and also rat osteoblasts.

Universitatsklinik fur Physikalische Medizin und Rehabilitation, Wien. firstname.lastname@example.org
To verify the efficacy of electromagnetic fields on various diseases we conducted a computer-assisted search of the pertinent literature. The search was performed with the aid of the Medline and Embase database (1966-1998) and reference lists. Clinical trials with at least one control group were selected. The selection criteria were met by 31 clinical studies. 20 trials were designed double-blind, randomised and placebo-controlled. The studies were categorised by indications. Electromagnetic fields were applied to promote bone-healing, to treat osteoarthritis and inflammatory diseases of the musculoskeletal system, to alleviate pain, to enhance healing of ulcers and to reduce spasticity. The action on bone healing and pain alleviation of electromagnetic fields was confirmed in most of the trials. In the treatment of other disorders the results are contradictory. Application times varied between 15 minutes and 24 hours per day for three weeks up to eighteen months. There seems to be a relationship between longer daily application time and positive effects particular in bone-healing. Patients were treated with electromagnetic fields of 2 to 100 G (0.2 mT to 10 mT) with a frequency between 12 and 100 Hz. Optimal dosimetry for therapy with electromagnetic fields is yet not established.

Department of Urology, School of Medicine, Fatih University, Ciftlik Cd. No: 57, TR-06510 Emek, Ankara, Turkey. email@example.com
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of extracorporeal magnetic stimulation for the treatment of stress and urge urinary incontinence in women.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 35 patients with stress incontinence and 17 with urge incontinence were enrolled in this study. All patients were evaluated by means of a detailed history of incontinence, a gynecologic examination, urine culture, urinary system ultrasound and a urodynamic study. All patients were asked to keep a 3-day voiding diary. A pad-weighing test was done for each patient at their first visit. For treatment, the patients were seated on a special chair containing a magnetic field generator. Pelvic floor muscle stimulation was performed for 20 min (10 min at 5 Hz and 10 min at 50 Hz) twice a week for a total of 8 weeks. The mean follow-up period was 16.8 months (range 12-32 months). A total of 44 patients completed 1 year of follow-up and were re-evaluated by means of voiding diary, pad-weighing test and cystometric study.
RESULTS: Of the 44 patients, 11 (38%) with stress incontinence and 6 (40%) with urge incontinence were cured 1 year after the treatment. In addition, there was an improvement in symptoms in 12 patients (41%) in the stress group and 7 (47%) in the urge group. Pad weight was reduced from 15.4 to 5.8 g in the stress group and from 12.4 to 4.7 g in the urge group (p = 0.000 and 0.001, respectively). Mean Valsalva leak point pressure was increased from 87.3 +/- 15.9 to 118.0 +/- 11.0 cmH (2) O in the stress group (p = 0.000).
CONCLUSIONS: Extracorporeal magnetic stimulation therapy offers a non-invasive, effective and painless treatment for stress and urge incontinence in women.

MIGRAINE & HEADACHE
Treatment of migraine with pulsing electromagnetic fields: a double-blind, placebo-controlled study.
Sherman RA, Acosta NM, Robson L.
Orthopedic Surgery Service, Madigan Army Medical Center, Tacoma, WA 98431, USA.
The effect of exposure to pulsing electromagnetic fields on migraine activity was evaluated by having 42 subjects (34 women and 8 men), who met the International Headache Society’s criteria for migraine, participate in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Each subject kept a 1-month, pretreatment, baseline log of headache activity prior to being randomized to having either actual or placebo pulsing electromagnetic fields applied to their inner thighs for 1 hour per day, 5 days per week, for 2 weeks. After exposure, all subjects kept the log for at least 1 follow-up month. During the first month of follow-up, 73% of those receiving actual exposure reported decreased headaches (45% good decrease, 14% excellent decrease) compared to half of those receiving the placebo (15% worse, 20% good, 0% excellent). Ten of the 22 subjects who had actual exposure received 2 additional weeks of actual exposure after their initial 1-month follow-up. All showed decreased headache activity (50% good, 38% excellent). Thirteen subjects from the actual exposure group elected not to receive additional exposure. Twelve of them showed decreased headache activity by the second month (29% good, 43% excellent). Eight of the subjects in the placebo group elected to receive 2 weeks of actual exposure after the initial 1-month follow-up with 75% showing decreased headache activity (38% good, 38% excellent). In conclusion, exposure of the inner thighs to pulsing electromagnetic fields for at least 3 weeks is an effective, short-term intervention for migraine, but not tension headaches.

Weak electromagnetic fields attenuate tremor in multiple sclerosis.
Sandyk R, Dann LC.
NeuroCommunication Research Laboratories, Danbury, CT 06811, USA.
It has been estimated that about 75% of patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) have tremor which can be exceedingly disabling. The most common tremor observed in patients with MS is a cerebellar intention tremor (‘kinetic tremor’) although postural tremor (‘static tremor’) is also common and often extremely incapacitating. Currently there is no effective medical treatment for the tremor of MS which, in some severe cases, may be abolished by stereotactic thalamotomy. It was reported recently that extracranial application of brief AC pulsed electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in the picotesla (pT) range produced improvement in motor and cognitive functions in patients with MS. The present communication concerns three MS patients with a chronic progressive course of the disease (mean age: 39.3 +/- 8.3 years; mean duration of illness: 11.3 +/- 3.2 years) in whom brief external applications of pulsed EMFs of 7.5 pT intensity reduced intention and postural tremors resulting in significant functional improvement. The report suggests that these extremely low intensity electromagnetic fields are beneficial also in the treatment of tremors in MS and that this treatment may serve as an alternative method to stereotactic thalamotomy in the management of tremor in MS. The mechanisms by which EMFs attenuate the tremors of MS are complex and are thought to involve augmentation of GABA and serotonin (5-HT) neurotransmission in the cerebellum and its outflow tracts.

The effect of pulsed electromagnetic fields on osteoporosis at the knee in individuals with spinal cord injury.
Garland DE, Adkins RH, Matsuno NN, Stewart CA.
Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center, Downey, California 90242, USA.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields on osteoporotic bone at the knee in individuals with chronic spinal injury. The study consisted of 6 males with complete spinal cord injury at a minimum of 2 years duration. Bone mineral density (BMD) was obtained at both knees at initiation, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. In each case, 1 knee was stimulated using The Bone Growth Stimulator Model 3005 from American Medical Electronics, Incorporated and the opposite knee served as the control. Stimulation ceased at 6 months. At 3 months BMD increased in the stimulated knees 5.1% and declined in the control knees 6.6% (p < .05 and p < .02, respectively). By 6 months the BMD returned to near baseline values and at 12 months both knees had lost bone at a similar rate to 2.4% below baseline for the stimulated knee and 3.6% below baseline for the control. There were larger effects closer to the site of stimulation. While the stimulation appeared useful in retarding osteoporosis, the unexpected exaggerated decline in the control knees and reversal at 6 months suggests underlying mechanisms are more complex than originally anticipated. The authors believe a local as well as a systemic response was created.

A drug naive parkinsonian patient successfully treated with weak electromagnetic fields.
NeuroCommunication Research Laboratories, Danbury, CT 06811, USA.
Brief cerebral application of picotesla (pT) electromagnetic fields (EMF) has been demonstrated an efficacious, revolutionary treatment modality for the therapy of Parkinson’s disease (PD) with clinical benefits being evident in all motor aspects of the disease as well as in nonmotor symptoms such as mood, sleep, pain, sexual dysfunction, autonomic regulation and cognitive functions. Since treatment with pT EMF has involved PD patients who were treated with dopaminergic agents at the time they received EMF there may have been a synergistic interaction between dopaminergic drugs and EMF. The present communication concerns a 49-year-old male Parkinsonian patient with stage 3 disability on the Hoehn and Yahr scale (1967) who, in response to brief extracranial applications of pT EMF, demonstrated a marked improvement in motor, depressive symptomatology and cognitive functions and was classified as stage 1 several weeks later. This case is remarkable in that the patient did not receive treatment with dopaminergic drugs prior to or during the course of EMF therapy. It suggests that (a) pT range EMF may be efficacious as a monotherapy for PD and should be considered also as a treatment modality for de novo diagnosed patients, and (b) application of these EMF improves Parkinsonism by a mechanism which involves, among others, augmentation of dopaminergic and serotonergic neurotransmission.

As far as our government and other national governments all over the world are concerned, the truth is not in them. That being said, if they were to come clean and tell the truth about what is going on, people’s first reactions would be shock and then rage. The truth only comes out when it is leaked or enough people catch on to something that the government starts admitting parts of the current deception in which they have been involved.
If they really wanted to tell the truth and clear the air they would say that they have been working with alien technology since the Roswell incident that there are different types of aliens: grays, tall whites, reptilian looking ones, and those walking among us who are hybrids and wear contacts to disguise their alien looking pupils. The Industrial Military Complex and the other alphabet departments of the government has been involved in this back project and are working on creating super soldiers for world domination. Behind all that is the Elite or Illuminati which control the banking and riches of the Earth.
Speaking of coming clean, the spraying of our atmosphere with things like alumina, barium, and radioactive waste in the Chemtrails has got to stop. They think people don’t notice but we are waking up to this and many other things going on with the atmosphere. Things like the H.A.A.R.P. which uses frequency waves to manipulate the weather are also being noticed by people. Have you noticed that the more the conspiracy goes around about this, the more of the actual information is slowly admitted to by the government agency involved? They announced the closing of H.A.A.R.P. only to say it is taken over by D.A.R.P.A., which is an agency involved in many dark projects. Then we find out that H.A.A.R.P. never really shut down. Smoke and mirrors are the games they play with us.
All the Chemtrail spraying is experimentation with blocking the effects of solar flares from our Sun among a few other things. This is the final year in an eleven year cycle of solar unrest and scientists have predicted a bad flare coming in the middle of September of 2013. That is all combined with their experimenting with nano-type particles they wish to be inhaled by us to change our health, test how humans tolerate certain metals and chemicals and a darker project to change our genes and even change the way our brain works in their effort to control our minds. People in my area have an increasing problems with sore throats, lung problems, and unexplained illnesses and allergic reactions.
You can call me crazy if you like. I really don’t care about that. What I want to say is there are many of us that are not fooled and we will not blindly get in line to get the next contaminated flu shot or joyfully stand in line to get that R.F.I.D. chip in the backs of our hands. We will not go quietly into the night for it is the light we seek. We are not of the dark like them we are the children of the light, the children of God.
After research and trying to connect the dots, I have an answer as to why Chemtrails are all over the world in increasing frequency. I know that from my home here in Southeast Texas, I can’t recall a day of the nice blue sky I once knew. Hazed over day follows hazed over day that is accompanied by weird cloud formations and the all too common spray streaks.
I don’t believe the initial purpose of this world wide spraying is depopulation at its root. It’s true that the Elite don’t care if millions die from it. I have been researching Sun spots and storms of late and have come to the conclusion that the Sun is in a bit of a temper tantrum which happens in a cyclical rhythm. The Sun is in one of those tantrum cycles which exhibits the worst possible eruptions and is capable of mass destruction of communications and could cause a crash in goods and services never seen on this Earth before.
I find it hard to believe that the Elite would want to destroy their empires built on the backs of normal humans on this Earth. Therefore, think logically at the depopulation they have in mind as a goal. They do not wish to destroy productive people only to control. Take for instance the genocide they have created in Africa as an example of ridding themselves of the unproductive who populate an area rich in resources.
To the point I am trying to make about the Sun Spot Cycle, I believe they think that there is a mega event coming in September of 2013. That is the cause of everything suddenly getting worse and worse as far as the sprayings are concerned. This mega event is predicted by some to be so catastrophic it could destroy and interrupt the economies of all countries on Earth. Once I realized this then all other facts fall into place: Fema Camps, Riot Control, Bullets and Guns bought by Fema, etc. They do no fear us trying to take back our government. They truly believe they have exacted a coup on it and do not think we are smart enough to see that they control everything, even the Congress. The stockpiling of weapons and ammo and the Fema camps is all about round up the rioters from a Sun Spot Catastrophe to prevent economic losses. Think about it. Owning everything is what it’s all about. This is a preservation move by the Elite to protect their own interests in the event of a great cosmic catastrophe.
The best thing we can do now is prepare for loss of goods and services for an extended period of time.
One thing you don’t want to be during the coming “crunch” is dependent on the system.
The more you can take care of yourself, the better off you’ll be physically, financially, emotionally and even spiritually.
Here are 17 ways (in no particular order) that you can become more self-sufficient right now:
Get a small solar system that can be used to run a laptop or recharge batteries
Drill a water well and install a hand pump or solar-powered DC pump
Set up a rainwater collection system or barrel
Stash some cash: stock away some green dollar bills and lots of U.S. nickels ( Quarters from 1964 and older still contain 90% silver, so they are a safe bet!)
Own and learn how to use a handgun, rifle and shotgun
Store plenty of ammunition (this one may be pretty hard to do right now…)
Own and know how to use a water filter
Start a garden this spring and acquire more food production skills
Save garden seeds so you can plant the next generation of food. ( Only Non GMO seeds will yield multiple crops)
Acquire a wood-burning stove for heat and cooking
Possess a large quantity of stored food; enough for at least 90 days
Get to know your local farmers and ranchers
Store up valuable barter items that are relatively cheap today: Alcohol, coffee, ammo, matches, etc.
Safely store extra vehicle fuel (gasoline, diesel) at your home or ranch. Be sure to use fuel stabilizers to extend their life.
Learn emergency first aid skills and own first aid supplies. (This could save a life or possibly save a trip to the emergency room)
Start growing your own medicinal plants. Aloe vera, oregano, garlic, cayenne pepper and other medicinal herbs that can replace a surprisingly large number of prescription drugs.
Own emergency hand-cranked radios so you can tune in to news and announcements
In case you think I’m totally off base on this, here are a few links you can research for yourself.
When I was in high school, I read “1984”. That was a date far off in the ’60’s. It seemed like a surreal idea and at the time, it was a science fiction idea that could never possibly happen in any reality I knew. That was then and this is now. Today it’s real. Today we have every corner of our lives poked and prodded by various government agencies seeking out anything they deem we should not be saying or doing. Words like Patriot, Constitution, Conservative, and Tea Party are threats to their agenda. Now it is perfectly clear what has happened in Washington, Congress must tow the mark to the administration’s agenda or their utmost, deepest, darkest secrets will be brought forth in a scandalous way. This happened even in our Supreme Court with Justice Roberts and the ruling he made on ObamaCare. General Petraeus was forced from his position by scandal when he wished to go against the administration’s agenda.
