Possibly this is propaganda from those on Assad’s side, but let’s ask ourselves if this could be true. We are being lied to on a daily basis from our media and our governments. Nothing should surprise us anymore.
The West is literally stealing Syria’s assets, oil, under the guise of freedom and democracy. Bullshit, it’s theft and robbery. It is a war crime. Where the hell is the United Nations?
“•The Assad family belongs to the tolerant Islam of Alawid orientation. • Syrian women have the same rights as men to study, health and education.
• Syria women are not forced to wear the burka. The Sharia (Islamic law) is unconstitutional.
• Syria is the only Arab country with a secular constitution and does not tolerate Islamic extremist movements.
• Roughly 10% of the Syrian population belongs to one of the many Christian denominations, all fully integrated in Syrian political and social life.
• In other Arab countries the Christian population is less than 1% due to sustained hostility.
• Syria has banned genetically modified (GMO) seeds, stating his decision was made in order “to preserve human health,”
• Syria alongside Lebanon have an opening to Western society and culture like no other Arab country.
• Its media and universities openly debate the global power elite’s influence in things. This means that they fully grasp the fact that real power in the West lies not in the White House but rather with the complex and powerful grid of elite think-tanks and central banks.
• Throughout history there have been five popes of Syrian origin. Religious tolerance is unique in the area.
• Prior to the western sponsored current civil war, Syria was one of the only peaceful countries in the area, having avoided major wars or internal conflicts.
• Syria was the only country that admitted Iraqi refugees without any social, political or religious discrimination
• Syria clearly and unequivocally opposes Zionism and the Israel government.
• Following a massive oil find in Syria’s Golan Heights, occupied by Israel since 1967, Netanyahu recently asked Obama to recognize its annexation of the territory. To consolidate its hold, plans are afoot to quadruple Israeli settler numbers to 100,000.
And the most two important points: • Syria is one of the only countries in the Middle East without debts to the International Monetary Fund (Pre-invasion Libya & Iran the only others) • Syria is the only Mediterranean country which remains the owner of its oil company, with an oil reserve of 2,500 million barrels, the operation of which has avoided privatization and is reserved exclusively for state-owned enterprises.
So now ask yourself, why are we truly attempting to overthrow yet another government? What are we hoping to fix here?
If the recent invasions and illegal assassinations of Presidents like Qaddafi and Saddam have taught us anything, it should be the understanding of the blow-back effect of such lawless actions by the West and the vacuum of chaos that always supersedes it.
Debt Conquer. Invent a reason to invade and destroy, then offer $Trillions in IMF funding to rebuild… conveniently paid back by control of your oil fields and the free access to build gas pipelines to the west.” #SyriaHoax
Did you know that there was a shocking study published in the Public Library of Science Journal, that found“up to 72%” of scientists admitted their colleagues were engaged in “questionable research practices,” and that just over 14% of them were engaged in outright “falsification”?
But it gets even worse; scientists at the Thousand Oaks biotech firm Amgen, set out to double-check the results of 53 landmark published studies in their fields of cancer research and blood biology. What they found was shocking; only 6 of the 53 studies could be proven valid. That means almost 90% were flawed, yet passed off to the public as fact. 
In other words, there’s a lot of scientific bullshit floating around my friends.
This becomes especially concerning when we consider how “science” seems to have replaced organized religion as the new authority that should blindly be obeyed in many ways. People speak of it as if it is infallible, and anyone who questions the high priests of science are generally attacked, degraded, and dismissed as modern day heretics.
But science, just like any religion, is not a god that only speaks unadulterated Truth. It is far from being infallible and is constantly in need of being updated, upgraded, challenged, revised, and changed, for the simple fact that science is subject to the narrow confines of mankind’s tiny flawed human perception; which is forever growing and expanding — and easily skewed by things like prejudice, pride, and corruption.
In and of itself, science is obviously inanimate and can do neither good nor bad because it has no mind of its own. It is not a person, so we need to stop talking about science like it is a super hero. It is simply a vehicle that requires a driver, and the destination obviously differs from one driver to the next.
While some may have the earnest pursuit of objective Truth in mind, most can be corrupted by the pursuit of money (such as Iowa State University professor Dong-Pyou Han who is now sitting in jail for his AIDS vaccine fraud), the want of fame, or simply personal prejudice and egotistical pride. And to help remind people why they should not blindly trust “science” — or any other body of purported knowledge for that matter — I decided to write this short article on how scientific bullshit has been used throughout history to manipulate our perceptions and beliefs.
Big Tobacco & The Sugar Industry
More than half a century ago, big tobacco used science as a weapon to convince the naive and gullible about the safety of their cigarettes.
Notice the key phrase, “Scientific Evidence”/Image credit: Adpast.com
A number of different medical organizations and journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), were indeed on the payroll of Big Tobacco and helped to promote their agenda through the promotion of flawed “science”.
Notice the key persuading phrase in the above advertisement; “…the final results, published in authoritative medical journals, proved conclusively that when smokers changed to Philip Morris, every case of irritation cleared completely or definitely improved.”
This is something we all need to understand my friends; our global society is run as a business, not as a non profit organization that values human life. And this means that any line of profession can easily be corrupted by money. Unfortunately our problems are systemic and have their roots in this painfully flawed paradigm.
Coca Cola was also caught paying scientists (to the tune of $132.8 million) to downplay the severity of consuming their sugary drinks, and other unhealthy products. In fact, corporations do this all the time. A perfect example, is a study conducted by the University of Colorado that claimed that diet soda was better at promoting healthy weight loss than water. Unsurprisingly, this study was funded by the soda industry.
Another study claimed that children who ate candy weigh less than children who don’t, and are less likely to be obese. This, unsurprisingly again, was funded by a trade association representing candy giants Butterfingers, Hershey and Skittles.
Today, a number of questionable practices in the name of science continue. Sadly, the manipulation (or incompetence) of science is something that most likely will never be truly eliminated from society because it is rooted in human fallibility and corruption. This is not to say that the concept of science does not serve an important purpose, because it certainly does; I personally use scientific methods and principles daily in my life, and even relied on scientific research to highlight corruption within the scientific community in this blog. But this was written specifically to remind us all that “science” can be used to deceive us — has been used to deceive us — and should always be questioned as a result. Scientists obviously need money to conduct their research, and corporations who place material profit above human life have plenty of it. The hand that gives usually controls the hand that takes.
Until we design a system that promotes unadulterated education, more than it does propaganda and ignorance; and rewards integrity more than the willingness to do anything for “money,” this type of pathetic human behavior will persist for obvious reasons.

US intelligence officials have admitted to CNN that the US launched the attack against Syria without being able to confirm that a sarin chemical attack had taken place.
Over the weekend, the United States led a coordinated attack—along with French and British forces—on the sovereign country of Syria. The attack consisted of hundreds of missiles which were recorded hitting civilian targets and also reportedly struck a cancer research facility. And now, we are learning that all of it was based on an alleged use of sarin gas for which they had no evidence.
According to a report from CNN today, US intelligence agencies have admitted that they were not certain the Assad regime had used the nerve agent sarin against civilians—but launched the massive attack anyway.
Officials merely claimed that they were confident Assad did use chemical weapons and that was enough for the attack.
According to CNN, the lack of complete information played a role in deciding not to strike a larger set of targets including airfields, aircraftand helicopters, one defense official said. Others factors, like Russian positioning, also played a role in the decisions.
After the strikes Friday night, the French and British governments also released the supposed evidence they had to justify the act of war carried out by allied nations in Syria. The reports admitted to not having any actual intelligence and the “evidence” was based on “open source” information widely available on the internet.
On Tuesday, it was also reported that Secretary of Defense James Mattis attempted to take the constitutional approach to war by seeking Congressional approval before the strike, but he was overruled because that would take too much time, not allow for an actual investigation, and allow for time to the US to be proven wrong about their claims.
As the NY Times reported, Mattis urged President Trump to get congressional approval before the United States launched airstrikes against Syria last week, but was overruled by Mr. Trump, who wanted a rapid and dramatic response, military and administration officials said.
Instead of investigating the alleged attack or following the constitution, the US government engaged in an act of war against a sovereign country—and they did so based entirely on a hunch.
As CNN notes, the reality was that prior to the US strike, full confirmation could not be made of whether Syria had used sarin in its attack.
“It’s a hard, long process, especially in an attack like this without physical access to victims, site. Therefore we had to work with closest allies quickly to ensure we had confidence in the intelligence picture, enabling policymakers to choose best course of action,” an intelligence official told CNN.
The Trump administration determined a “standard of evidence had been met,” the official said.
What’s more, western journalists, who are actually on the ground investigating the attack, have reported that no such chemical strike happened and the widely circulated video was something entirely different.
As TFTP reported, critically acclaimed war reporter Robert Fisk published a stunning account of the alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7, which included testimony from a doctor who works at the hospital featured in the widely circulated video purported to be the aftermath of a Syrian government chemical strike.
In an exclusive first-hand report for the Independent, Fisk, who has twice won the British Press Awards’ Journalist of the Year prize and is a seven-time winner of the British Press Awards’ Foreign Correspondent of the Year, reported:
This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks–and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world’s most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week. There’s even a friendly doctor in a green coat who, when I track him down in the very same clinic, cheerfully tells me that the “gas” videotape which horrified the world– despite all the doubters–is perfectly genuine.
War stories, however, have a habit of growing darker. For the same 58-year old senior Syrian doctor then adds something profoundly uncomfortable: the patients, he says, were overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation in the rubbish-filled tunnels and basements in which they lived, on a night of wind and heavy shelling that stirred up a dust storm.
Additionally, a report from Douma, Syria, by One America’s Pearson Sharp, confirmed Fisk’s reporting, noting that residents there deny an attack happened and instead claim it was staged by rebel forces in an effort to precipitate a response from western forces.
We don’t trust nutrition studies funded by soda companies. Why would we trust alcohol studies funded by the booze industry?
Officials at the government agency tasked with studying the health effects of alcohol aggressively courted alcohol executives to fund a $100 million clinical trial on “moderate drinking,” according to recently published investigations by The New York Times, Wired and Stat.
The executives complied, according to the Times, with the understanding that this research would probably conclude alcohol is safe and lowers the risk of disease.
Together, these reports paint a disturbing picture about the way alcohol companies are trying to influence scientific understanding, and thus public perception, of alcohol as a health tonic.
If you’ve ever seen headlines about how red wine is good for your heart, or how moderate alcohol use is linked to longer life, you’ve seen the alcohol industry’s influence on health science at work. And Americans seem to be swallowing that message. A 2015 Gallup poll found that 1 in 5 Americans believe “moderate” drinking is good for health, and that this was especially true among those who drink alcohol.
This belief is a boon for the alcohol industry for at least two reasons: It links alcohol consumption to a healthy lifestyle that can improve heart health, and it relies on the concept of “moderation,” a squishy term that in practice ends up meaning whatever drinkers want it to mean.
Alcohol executives were allowed to help pick the scientists and preview the trial’s design, reports the Times, while Wired reported on how dependent the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) is on industry funding to complete the expensive, long-term study. Finally, Stat has a story about how scientists who published unflattering research about the alcohol industry were verbally abused by NIAAA officials and cut off from funding.
It’s kind of the whole reason we have an independent science sector ― to wall it off from conflicts of interest like this. David Jernigan, Boston University School of Public Health.
Even though the scientists involved in these studies, all from prestigious universities, may insist that they have independence in their work, studies show that research funded by the food industry is four to eight times more likely to conclude something that financially benefits the sponsor. Industry-funded research also tends to suppress negative data. When pharmaceutical companies fund studies, the findings are less likely to be published than research funded by other sources.
“The obvious conflict of interest is that the funder of this research stands to benefit when the research comes out with findings that encourage more people to use its products,” said David Jernigan, a professor at the Department of Health Law, Policy and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health. “It’s kind of the whole reason we have an independent science sector ― to wall it off from conflicts of interest like this.”
Why food and drink companies love the word ‘moderation’
Research on the concept of “moderation” reveals that the more a person likes a food or drink, the bigger their definition of what a “moderate” serving is. And food and beverage companies may be using that to their advantage, said Michelle vanDellen, an expert in self-control and eating behaviors at the University of Georgia.
“I don’t know if food and beverage companies have done research on moderation,” she said. “I have, and I know that moderation messages are poorly defined, they increase the scope of what is considered healthy and they lead to increased intended consumption.”
When it comes to alcohol, at least, there is a seemingly objective unit of measurement for moderation: up to one drink a day for women, and up to two drinks a day for men, as defined by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. These amounts form the basis of claims that alcohol may have a positive effect on health.
But careful analyses have debunked the association between moderate alcohol consumption and health by taking the “abstainer bias” into account. People who currently abstain from alcohol include those who have never consumed it and former drinkers. But many former drinkers have quit alcohol for health reasons, so the “abstainer” group is already biased toward worse health overall than a group of people who are still moderate drinkers and haven’t had to quit because of their health.
Since 2011, more than 18,000 Syrian human beings have had their organs harvested. Men, women and children. And the mainstream media has been silent. No one is doing anything to stop it. Because it’s business: Human trafficking, Satanic ritual abuse, organ harvesting. #PureEvil.
Our government and our media have been peddling lies to justify war, from WMDs in Iraq to humanitarian intervention in Libya. The latest? A U.S.-led missile strike on Syria for the alleged use chemical weapons on civilians. This, just a week after President Trump said we were ready to get our troops out of that country. This is a Reality Check you won’t get anywhere else.
So you’ve become a regular at the gym, turned vegan, and done almost everything in your power to stay physically healthy. What about staying mentally fit as well? Mental health is just as important as physical health. Mental fitness protects us from depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other diseases.
Neuroscientist Dr. Lisa Mosconi, director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College, New York claims we can prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia through healthier food and lifestyle choices. In her new book Brain Food: How to Eat Smart and Sharpen your Mind, Mosconi says that while genetics plays a key role in causing dementia, lifestyle factors, like diet, are just as crucial.
Maintain your sugar levels — Our brain depends mainly on glucose (sugar) and needs 62 grams of glucose daily. Before you grab that extra-large pizza though, Mosconi says our brains’ ‘sugar gates’ open when it needs sugar, but shuts down once it’s had enough. Excess glucose can’t enter the “sugar gate.” Instead, it leads to high blood sugar levels and weight gain.
Know how your nutrients interact — Nutrients in your body should interact withe each other. Make sure you get a balance of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and vitamin B.
Have plant-based meals — Our vegetarian ancestors knew it all along. Plant-based foods are the best. In fact, 98 percent of those who live long, healthy and dementia-free lives are vegans.
Choose organic food well — You can also save on costs by choosing fruits that are in season. You can also opt for wild fish over the farmed variety, since the former tends to have less pollutants and pesticides.
Always eat breakfast — Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day, because the brain needs an energy source in the morning. This means fresh fruit, whole grains, and lean protein.
Go for red wine — Because it is rich in the antioxidant resveratrol, red wine protects our brains and helps us live longer. Mosconi advises women to take a small glass of wine a day for brain health. Organic pomegranate juice, grape juice, and prune juice are good substitutes.
Try fasting overnight — Research shows that cutting down on calories enhances cognitive capacity and help you lives longer. Brain cells grow stronger when hungry, so skip that midnight snack and try overnight fasting. This means taking a 12-to-16-hour break from food between dinner and breakfast.
Take a cue from ‘blue zones’ — These are regions around the world with the highest number of centenarians. Indians, who consume brain-protective food like spice turmeric, are not as prone to Alzheimer’s than Americans are. The latter are eight times more prone to the disease than their Indian counterparts. People living in Mediterranean countries also live longer because of a diet rich in wild greens like dandelions, legumes, beans and potato, fish and olive oil and an occasional cheese and red wine.
Stick to traditional cookware — Mosconi suggests stainless steel, glass and ceramic, not aluminium, plastics, and synthetic cookware with Teflon surfaces since they may have a compound (polytetrafluoroethylene) that can endanger brain health.
Take time to sleep — Studies show that adults who slept less than five hours a night showed higher levels of Alzheimer’s plaques in the brain than those who slept more than seven hours. Sleep gives the brain time to clear toxins and flush waste products away.
Keep a glass of water by your bed — Drinking eight to ten cups of water a day can boost brain performance by 30 percent. A glass of water when you wake up makes you feel more awake and able to think better.

The single most important thing that happened Friday night when the US military on President Trump’s orders launched a wave of over 100 cruise missiles against Syria was that once again the US violated the most profound international law of war: initiating a war of aggression against a nation that posed no threat, imminent or otherwise, to the US or its allies.
Called a “Crime against Peace,” this violation (whose perpetrators, under the precedent set in the Nuremberg Trials that followed World War II, can face capital punishment), is considered worse than any other war crime because, as US Nuremberg prosecutor Robert Jackson explained in his argument at the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi war criminals, a war of aggressionis “not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”
President Trump, during his televised White House announcement just after the launching of his bombing attack on Syria, said, “The purpose of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons…We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents.”
He was making the argument that the US, acting on its own authority without any sanction from the UN Security Council as required under international law, somehow had a duty to, on its own, punish Syria for its alleged violation of a Geneva Convention against the use of chemical weapons.
Putting aside for a moment the important question of whether the Syrian government actually did use chemical weapons in the Douma suburb of Damascus, which is in fact highly suspect, even if that country’s leader, Basher al Assad, did order the use of a banned chemical weapon, Assad’s crime would be far less serious than the crime Trump and the US perpetrated under international law.
Fortunately, it appears as if saner members of the largely crazy Trump administration — notably Secretary of Defense James Mattis, a retired four-star Marine general — prevailed over the neoconservative warmongering chicken hawk John Bolton, recently ensconced in the ever-changing National Security Advisor spot, with the result that the much ballyhooed US cruise missile attack on Syria’s purported “chemical arms infrastructure” was limited to three sites.
More importantly, earlier talk of hitting “command-and-control” centers like government buildings in Damascus, or Syrian air bases — places where Russia had warned that it had its own military personnel and that could have provoked a Russia military response — was pushed aside and such targets were left off the hit list. That meant the risk, about which Mattis pointedly warned in recent days, of this US attack morphing uncontrollably into a war between the two nuclear superpowers operating in Syria, the US and Russia, was minimized.
Fortunately too, for the Syrian people in target areas of the US cruise missiles and the handful of missiles launched by America’s two willing “allies,” Britain and France (whose participation was meant to give a sheen of “multilateralism” to the crime), at least some reports including from Russia claim that up to two-thirds of the US missiles launched were knocked down or blown up in the air by Syrian anti-missile defenses.
So we aren’t facing the threat of a nuclear exchange, or a tense period in which US and Russian soldiers and airmen face each other with tense fingers on triggers in the midst of the Syrian conflict.
The question is what happens next.
First there needs to be a real investigation, official and by real journalists — the thing that should have happened before Trump jumped in with his blustery missile attack (as he Tweeted: “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!”) — into whether there was a chemical attack at all on April 7 in the suburb of Douma, and if so, who was behind it.
The claim of an attack is being made by the so-called “White Hats,” a supposedly non-governmental medical aid organization backed and funded by the US and founded by a member of British intelligence which reportedly has links with the Al Nusra terrorist organization in Syria. The Syrian Red Crescent organization which is affiliated with the Red Cross and has a much better reputation as both an aid organization and as a non-partisan truly medical service, has not confirmed a chemical attack. Meanwhile, the Russian television service RT is reporting that the White Hats actually rushed into a Damascus hospital where victims of fighting in Gouda were being treated, and set off a panic among patients by shouting “chemicals, chemicals!” and dousing people with water, leading to the charge of a chemical attack. Russia is also claiming that British intelligence agents were behind the staging of the event.
Many critics are noting that, as in prior questionable cases of the Syrian government being accused of using banned chemical weapons, this one occurred not when the government was losing and in a desperate situation, but when it was close to winning control of an area and was really in the “mopping up” phase. Indeed, rebel fighters had already given up and were availing themselves of an evacuation agreement, boarding chartered buses to take them to a safer area in the north of Syria, when the alleged “attack” occurred. (Why one has to wonder, would Assad have launched a chemical attack in that situation, knowing it would provoke another US military response? It makes no sense.)
It is also suspicious that the UN had already ordered inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to go to the site of the alleged attack to look for evidence of chemical use, but the Trump administration couldn’t even wait the four days it would take them to get there to launch an attack — an attack that is bound to delay their arrival and make finding that evidence increasingly difficult and problematic.
It is also significant that the OPCW has been instructed only to search for evidence of chemical weapons use, not to determine blame for its use.
The danger of course, is that if the Syrian government has not been the perpetrator of this or earlier gas attacks, as some investigative reporters like Robert Sheer have claimed, those who would then likely be responsible — the anti-Assad rebel forces — could be encouraged by this attack and the one Trump launched last year after a similar questionable use of chemical weapons, to launch more such faked Syrian attacks, in hopes of luring the US deeper into the Syrian civil war quagmire.
Obviously, such concerns are not being even considered at the White House. Indeed, if this contrarian line of reasoning is correct, it would be more likely that the US and its allies, Britain and France, are involved in the planning of such “false flag” attacks on civilians.
The US media, are largely cheerleading this attack, with reporters asking for details about its success at hitting alleged targets of Syrian chemical weapons storage, manufacture and research, instead of demanding answers as to the attack’s legality. When the decision to launch the attacks is questioned at all, it is not its obvious violation of international law that is raised, but the far subordinate question of whether the president has the right to order such an attack on his own, without the prior approval of Congress. While that is certainly an important question for Americans to ask, given that there was and is no imminent threat of Syria attacking the US or US forces (which in any case are in Syria illegally), it would hardly be any better if Congress did declare war on Syria, since that too would be a war crime under international law.
Clearly we are now in a very dangerous period, with a president, unconstrained by a Congress controlled by his own party, at the same time facing grave and mounting legal threats to his presidency. He is clearly looking at ways to divert media attention from himself and his own criminal behavior and to get an increasingly restive public to rally ‘round the flag and around himself as “commander in chief” of a nation at war.

Exorcism is again in the news, as the Vatican announces a new training course will be held to meet increased demand for deliverance ministry. So what does this actually mean, and should it be a cause for reassurance or concern? Newspaper headlines about a “rise in possessions” may bring to mind horrific scenes from The Exorcist, but sensationalism doesn’t help public understanding of a serious and complex reality.
Broadly speaking, exorcism signifies freeing a place, person or even object from some form of negative spiritual influence. Beliefs and rituals which could appropriately be labelled exorcism are found in almost all cultures and faith traditions, but in the West are encountered most frequently within Christian or Islamic settings.
It is important to emphasise that within both Muslim and Christian circles, however, there is a wide spectrum of opinion about exorcism and its place in the 21st century. For instance, there are theological voices within Roman Catholicism and Anglicanism which would deny the existence of demonic entities altogether – but institutionally, these churches do accept the possibility of human possession and provide for specialist ministry in such cases.
The reality within these churches is very different from the picture presented by Hollywood. These matters are only dealt with by specially trained priests and always with the minimum of publicity.
How it works
A key element of the training is to help priests discern whether the cause of the problem relates to mental health or emotional issues, rather than anything supernatural, and to support the person in seeking appropriate help. Indeed, exorcism rites should never be carried out without medical assessment by a suitably qualified doctor.
Consequently, providing a training course for deliverance ministers should not be straightforwardly translated as an endorsement of the idea that there has been a perceived sudden increase in demonic activity. What it really means is that the Church is experiencing a growing number of people coming and seeking help because they feel themselves to be suffering from spiritual evil.
The causes of this increased demand are a matter of debate, but there are voices expressing reasonable concerns that a growing recourse to exorcism rituals may lead to vulnerable people being harmed. After all, not all religious organisations have structures or controls to safeguard participants.
For Anglicans and Roman Catholics, tight regulation is in place – because exorcism is an exceptional practice which involves people who will always be fragile, and may often be ill. When carried out, the rite will involve spoken prayers, readings from scripture and sometimes the gentle laying on of hands. Authorised exorcism will never include any violent contact, touching in intimate areas or interaction which could be interpreted as having sexual connotations. The term “deliverance ministry” is preferred to “exorcism”, and it is seen as part of the Church’s broader ministry of healing.
In contrast, within some other traditions, for instance some forms of Pentecostalism and Charismatic Evangelicalism, exorcism is seen as routine and many members of the community receive it without worry or stigma – almost akin to purifying rituals. Those undergoing them are not necessarily at risk, but there is always the danger they could be.
In a liberal, democratic society, the state does not seek to make value judgements in relation to the religious choices of citizens. Without good reason, there is no justification for limiting the freedom of individuals to express their faith as they see fit. It would be difficult to argue for secular regulation of exorcism across the board.
But equally, it would be irresponsible to ignore the challenges which some exorcism practices can present. There have been a number of tragic cases of people, children as well as adults, dying as a result of exorcism rituals in the UK and elsewhere. There is also ample evidence of people who feel that they were subjected to rituals to which they did not properly consent, or were kept from accessing medical treatment or other forms of support for some time, prolonging their suffering and the distress to those around them.
In some respects, the law in England and Wales is clear. Where children are concerned, child abuse is child abuse, regardless of the motivation behind it. If a child is suffering, or at risk from harm which is sufficiently serious, then public authorities need to act – and they are required to do so.
Where adults are concerned the picture is much more complicated. Some faith groups practice exorcism rites which involve a degree of violence – the understanding is frequently that the evil spirit is occupying the body, and so by making the body an uncomfortable place to be, it can be driven out.
This is especially dangerous, because pleas to stop can be interpreted as coming from the demon rather than the sufferer. Here, consent – even if given – will probably not avail a defendant if the victim suffers actual bodily harm (anything more than “transient or trifling” injury).
In many Western countries, exorcists have considerable freedom. And there is still clearly demand for them. But this is an ancient ritual which must very much stay on the right side of the modern law.
An infectious flesh-eating ulcer caused by a bacteria is spreading so quickly through Australia that scientists in the state of Victoria are declaring this outbreak an epidemic. Normally abundant in West and central Africa and, the buruli ulcer is now taking hold in the “land down under.”
In a study published Monday in the Medical Journal of Australia, the authors caution that the outbreak of the ulcers, described as an “epidemic” in the study, requires an “urgent scientific response.” They report that Victoria is facing a worsening epidemic “defined by cases rapidly increasing in number, becoming more severe in nature, and occurring in new geographic areas.”
Buruli ulcer is caused by infection with the organism Mycobacterium ulcerans. It often affects the skin by deteriorating the tissue, but can go so deep it affects the bone structure. The organism belongs to the family of bacteria that causes tuberculosis and leprosy. However, M. ulcerans is an environmental bacterium and the mode of transmission to humans remains unknown. The organism produces a unique toxin – mycolactone – which causes tissue damage and inhibits the immune response.
According to numbers reported by CNN, in 2016, there were 182 new cases reported, a spike of 72%. But even this number was dwarfed by a further increase of 51% from November 2016 to the same month a year later. In November 2016, there were 156, which rose to 236 cases.
“In Australia, it seems more to be a terrestrial transmission whereas in Africa, for example, the strain is very different and is mostly transmitted through aquatic ecosystems,” said Andres Garchitorena, a researcher at the Institute of Research and Development in France and an expert on Buruli ulcers, who was not involved in the most recent report.
But the cases in Australia are becoming more severe and doctors also do not know the reason. “One possibility is maybe there’s some resistance to the antibiotics that they are using,” Garchitorena said. “It is difficult to prevent a disease when it is not known how infection is acquired,” wrote the lead author and associate professor Daniel O’Brien, an infectious diseases consultant.
Although some deaths from the infection have been reported, most cases are not life-threatening, according to Garchitorena. “There are cases where people have died, but the most common outcome when it’s not treated is a handicap: People may need an amputation or surgery with functional limitations for life,” he said. WHO also reports management of the buruli ulcer becomes more difficult when the patient is dealing with a coinfection of HIV, perhaps lending to the increased severity of the infections in Africa, although that’s largely speculation as still more in-depth studies of this disease are warranted.
The majority of cases are still being reported in West and Central Africa, including Benin, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Ghana. There are no predictable trends in the number of cases reported yearly either.
OAN Investigation Finds No Evidence of Chemical Weapon Attack in Syria.
America’s Pearson Sharp visited the war-torn town of Douma outside the capital of Damascus, looking for evidence of a chemical attack. However, residents there denythe claims of an attack, and say it was staged to help the rebels escape.
Veteran UK reporter Robert Fisk went to Syria’s Douma and heard that residents shown in notorious “gas attack footage” actually suffered from oxygen loss due to hiding in trash-filled shelters, and not from chemicals.
If you feel overwhelmed by MSM coverage of the “chemical attack” in Douma, here’s your voice in the wilderness. Robert Fisk, a veteran UK foreign correspondent with the Independent, and one of the few Western reporters to have interviewed Osama bin Laden, went to Douma to go beyond what the Western media portrayed in early April as the “Bashar Assad regime’s chemical attack.”
Fisk’s thought-provoking piece is centered around the witness accounts of Assim Rahaibani, a 58-year-old local doctor who told him that patients caught in the heart-wrenching video – the one claiming to show the aftermath of the alleged chemical weapons attacks in Douma – did not actually suffer from any toxins.
They were “overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation” because they had to live in rubbish-filled underground shelters in order to survive the perils of fighting. The doctor told the Independent reporter that on the night of April 7, when the alleged attack supposedly took place, “there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived.”
Patients began to arrive in his subterranean hospital suffering from hypoxia and oxygen loss, Dr Rahaibani continued. “Then someone at the door, a ‘White Helmet’, shouted “gas!” and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other.” He added: “Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”
The footage in question was posted on YouTube on the day of the alleged chemical attack. Shortly after, graphic images purporting to show the horrific consequences of the attack began flooding social media. Though there may have been inconsistencies within the video and the images themselves, they were widely reported by Western media outlets which were quick to put the blame on the Syrian government.
The US and its allies the UK and France cited the purported gas attack in Douma as the pretext for military action against Syria that saw over 100 cruise missiles pounding Syrian civilian and military targets on April 14.
However, in the war-ravaged town of Douma, people seemed unable to link the alleged chemical incident and the US-led air assaults, Fisk writes.
“Oddly, after chatting to more than 20 people, I couldn’t find one who showed the slightest interest in Douma’s role in bringing about the Western air attacks,” he notes. “Two actually told me they didn’t know about the connection.”
Fisk says people in Douma were happy to see foreigners among them, and were willing to talk about other things. They told him of “the Islamists under whom they had lived,” and of militants who “had stolen civilian homes to avoid the Syrian government and Russian bombing.”
“How could it be that Douma refugees who had reached camps in Turkey were already describing a gas attack which no one in Douma today seemed to recall?” he asks in conclusion, adding that news would have spread incredibly slowly among residents who were so isolated from each other.
This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks – and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world’s most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week. There’s even a friendly doctor in a green coat who, when I track him down in the very same clinic, cheerfully tells me that the “gas” videotape which horrified the world – despite all the doubters – is perfectly genuine.
War stories, however, have a habit of growing darker. For the same 58-year old senior Syrian doctor then adds something profoundly uncomfortable: the patients, he says, were overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation in the rubbish-filled tunnels and basements in which they lived, on a night of wind and heavy shelling that stirred up a dust storm.
As Dr Assim Rahaibani announces this extraordinary conclusion, it is worth observing that he is by his own admission not an eyewitness himself and, as he speaks good English, he refers twice to the jihadi gunmen of Jaish el-Islam [the Army of Islam] in Douma as “terrorists” – the regime’s word for their enemies, and a term used by many people across Syria. Am I hearing this right? Which version of events are we to believe?
By bad luck, too, the doctors who were on duty that night on 7 April were all in Damascus giving evidence to a chemical weapons enquiry, which will be attempting to provide a definitive answer to that question in the coming weeks.
France, meanwhile, has said it has “proof” chemical weapons were used, and US media have quoted sources saying urine and blood tests showed this too. The WHO has said its partners on the ground treated 500 patients “exhibiting signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals”.
At the same time, inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are currently blocked from coming here to the site of the alleged gas attack themselves, ostensibly because they lacked the correct UN permits.
Before we go any further, readers should be aware that this is not the only story in Douma. There are the many people I talked to amid the ruins of the town who said they had “never believed in” gas stories – which were usually put about, they claimed, by the armed Islamist groups. These particular jihadis survived under a blizzard of shellfire by living in other’s people’s homes and in vast, wide tunnels with underground roads carved through the living rock by prisoners with pick-axes on three levels beneath the town. I walked through three of them yesterday, vast corridors of living rock which still contained Russian – yes, Russian – rockets and burned-out cars.
So the story of Douma is thus not just a story of gas – or no gas, as the case may be. It’s about thousands of people who did not opt for evacuation from Douma on buses that left last week, alongside the gunmen with whom they had to live like troglodytes for months in order to survive. I walked across this town quite freely yesterday without soldier, policeman or minder to haunt my footsteps, just two Syrian friends, a camera and a notebook. I sometimes had to clamber across 20-foot-high ramparts, up and down almost sheer walls of earth. Happy to see foreigners among them, happier still that the siege is finally over, they are mostly smiling; those whose faces you can see, of course, because a surprising number of Douma’s women wear full-length black hijab.

Many Federal Agents, aka Feds, “sell out” to the evil Ruling Cabal because of great pay, the best benefits and a sense of power; and the alternative would cause major personal losses and extreme “forever” problems.
Why do so many Federal agents, aka Feds, seem unaware or uncaring of the monstrous evil they contribute to when they follow the illegal and unconstitutional policies of their agencies which are mandated by the evil Ruling Cabal?
The majority of all Feds have drunk the Cabal Koolaide and have been effectively mind-kontrolled by their internalization of the particular subculture of power wearing the USG cloak of authority they have been socialized into.
Thus, it is fair to say that they have become true believers in their subculture and all the Cabal myths that support their false beliefs. It is the powerful rewards for internalizing this authoritarian subculture of the Cabal and all the rewards given them for doing so that motivates them to “sell out” to this Cabal-defined and -controlled Hierarchical system of authority and control.
However, there are always some feds who learn that the subculture of their agency is a lie, and most of the time they just live in quiet desperation to maintain their great pay and top benefits (which includes the best retirement packages imaginable).
Those that have too much character and integrity to go along just to get along, leave their jobs. Those few that try to change things get stepped on hard by the Cabal – often fired, blacklisted, sometime harassed for life, some get jailed on phony trumped up charges and some get murdered.
Older Feds are more likely to learn the sad truth that they work for evil, satanic kingpins of the Cabal, top policy-makers that are part of powerful think-tanks and organizations outside the mainstream USG.
But why do those that learn of the total corruption at the top of their agencies do nothing and usually go away quietly? Because they know that if they cross the set policies of their agency and appear to veer away from the prescribed belief set, they will be stepped on hard by the full authority of the USG like a boot in their face 24/7.
The USG provides all kinds of low-labor “sweetheart jobs” to the Cabal-approved “yes-men and -women”, most of whom are connected to the Cabal families.
This is a major and truly disgusting theft and waste of US Taxpayer monies. It’s always “pigs at the taxpayer trough” for DC officials and elected politicians. But the large corporations that stack the US Congress with massive Campaign funds (thanks to the Citizens United case) feed at this taxpayer trough even more.
Why does the US Department of Justice have a cadre of 500 lawyers designated the Senior Executive Services who are basically untouchable and who receive very high salaries and benefits? And why do they cover up so many crimes of the USG and Ruling Cabal?
Why don’t Feds do their jobs and start arresting all the pedophiles and crooks that populate DC?
First, most Lower level Feds are so highly compartmentalized and removed from the secret evil and Globalist NWO agenda and policies of the Ruling Cabal, that they just do not understand how their agency serves as a parasitical plague on We The People, and the world. Most of their daily responsibilities are basic Law Enforcement and actually much needed services by the public. But a fair portion are predatory and based on anti-human evil self-serving policies of the Ruling Cabal top policy-makers.
Second, most Feds have completely internalized the false ideology of their agency which has been carefully provided by the Cabal leaders and is quite anti-human in many ways when carefully examined. And these Cabal leaders who sit at the top of a USG (including military and Intel) and corporate Hierarchy, set all their major policies, and create the agency subcultures which fit together to support their age-old Globalist NWO Agenda.
Third, those Feds that do find this out and feel compelled to speak out get “stepped on” by the Ruling Cabal. Of course, the Ruling Cabal’s several top leaders are able to easily subvert and neutralize the Rule of Law. Cabal leaders can do this because of the extreme, absolute Caesarean Power they wield by occupying the very top of their Hierarchy, thereby easily making self-serving policies and exerting Control over all aspects of the USG, Congress and Law Enforcement.
It is this evil Ruling Cabal that runs the Secret Shadow Government (SSG) and sets the top policies that govern every Federal agency. These several evil parasitical, soulless Cabal top leaders determine set policies that determine how USG agency leaders cover up major Cabal and Federal Crimes, often imposing national security as a false but effective cover.
The Cabal policies in place that control the alphabets and LE agencies ensure the continuing cover-up of their crimes.
These covered up crimes usually include Treason, Sedition, major criminal and civil RICO, pedophile, war-making, crimes against humanity, subversion of the US Rule of Law, the Constitution and Bill or Rights. Crimes the Cabal used the FBI and Department of Just-us to cover up typically include satanic-based pedophile, child sacrifice, sex trafficking, organ trafficking, and many other unimaginable crimes.
Supervisors in these federal agencies appear to follow the orders given at the top of the Ruling Cabal Hierarchy and always follow these mandates and policies set by these top Cabal leaders or their Cutouts (without questioning them). If they don’t, they know that severe life-destroying sanctions will always follow in short order. Any Fed can “sandbag” (look busy but accomplish little as a way of silently dissenting, a frequent occurrence nowadays.
Part of the problem is that many Federal agents enact one small piece of the total work product of their agency, and do not know the full work product and output.
Nor do they understand or comprehend the extent of the evil done to individuals or society at large by the overall functions of their total agency work product, especially with those cases directly managed by their agency leadership.
Take the FBI for example. Any serious cases with potentially serious public blowback are taken over by the Washington Field Office (WFO). The WFO then carefully manipulates the evidence, covers it up, sometimes using extreme and completely illegal methods using specially deployed, closely trusted specialists. Many of these specialists have sold out to the Cabal or been deeply compromised themselves or mind-kontrolled to believe the false narratives provided by the Ruling Cabal. This keeps most ordinary field agents from ever understanding the final work product, which is often a serious RICO crime or cover up initiated to protect the interests of the Ruling Cabal or the agency itself.
I know about these false-narratives of the Cabal because many years ago I was briefed by a Fed who gave me what is known as the “John Cathey talk”. When I asked this man if he ever felt bad about his agency (the Company) bringing in massive amounts of illegal narcotics to sell to raise off-the-books black ops money, below is what he stated to me as something I should pay attention to. This high ranking Intel man was not part of the trafficking operations but knew about them and accepted them as normal Intel procedures. Here is what he told me, and he said this was the talk given to him by “John Cathey” years before, when he was briefed.
“Drugs and prostitution have always been here. It is a fact of history and no one is ever going to stop these vices. Now these are hard realities of life. Drugs will always be imported and sold; it’s a fact of history and a fact of life. We don’t force anyone to use drugs, it’s their own free choice. Now do you want all this money to go to the scumbag street urchins to waste, or doesn’t it make more sense for this money to go to your government to be used to protect the national security of America so America can remain strong and you can have true freedom? Nobody forces anyone to buy or use drugs, it’s an individual choice, but it just happens to be an historical reality that it goes on. So grow up and think like a big boy. If you don’t do this, somebody else will anyway, so it’s not like your refusal would ever make a dent in all this anyway.”
We all know that the “Feds” are: FBI, DHS, FEMA, DEA, CIA, US Marshals and all other agents of the USG who carry arrest rights for federal crimes.
Lately even the mere suspicion of a federal agency under the Patriot Act and NDAA can result in a search warrant, a national security letter that “suggests” your employer fire you for being a suspected terrorist (when you are not), or a warrant for your arrest. Under the Patriot Act you can be arrested, taken to a black military prison for life, tortured (or murdered) and never given any legal counsel or even come before a judge at any time.
Many of us know that it is very difficult to ever hold any Feds accountable for their illegal acts and individual crimes unless they are set up to be discredited or cast out of their agencies because they have gone outside allowed parameters of behavior (which happens once in awhile to make the public think there is actually rule of law for top officials and Feds—there isn’t).
Why do so many Federal Agents habitually continue to violate the spirit of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights while putting on the appearance that they believe they are in fact doing what is right and just?
After all, Feds have to take an oath of office to uphold the US Constitution and defend it from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Evil has become institutionalized as normal in these agencies and is now expected because “this is just the way things are done”.
Most lower level Feds been provided big lies, false-narratives and propaganda by the Cabal which they have believed, and they have been convinced that their immoral, unconstitutional actions are normal and okay.
Have most lower level “worker bee” Feds been bamboozled by the massive wealth and power that stands behind their badge, and has it corrupted their thinking and motivation? Or have many identified with their evil leaders? The answer is yes to both of these questions.
Is there a common process that has corrupted most Federal Law Enforcement Officers that has also corrupted the leaders of those agencies they work for? The answer is yes.
And if so, has this process that has corrupted the leaders of LE agencies and Federal LE Officers also corrupted the Major Mass Media who help to support it in lock-step. Have most USG-elected and appointed officials been corrupted by this Cabal-created policy, high pay and the pleasure of wearing the USG badge of power and speciality? Is this why all FBI are called “Special Agents”?
Yes, there appears to be a common process to this indoctrination of Cabal ideology and values for those wearing the cloak of USG authority and power. Most become seduced by the job security and great sense of power they gain by working as an agent of the Ruling Cabal which runs America and much of the world.
Psychologists have identified the process by which folks attempt to create cognitive consistency in their world. When they are being directed and well paid by a very powerful Ruling Cabal, there is strong motivation to identify with the prescribed values and practices, as well as the culture created by the Cabal at the top of the USG Hierarchy and to view it as a favorable part of themselves. All such is necessary to receive great pay, great benefits and great retirement. Feds are thus motivated to resolve any major cognitive dissonance in their daily jobs by aligning their operational beliefs with their agency’s practices and culture. They do this by realigning their beliefs and forming new norms and expectations for behaviors to establish cognitive consistency.
First, it is a fact that national security is often invoked as a false cloak providing cover for many of the illegal and unconstitutional acts of these Federal agents, and this serves as a strong motivator for Feds to just accept that sometimes rules and laws must be broken to protect America. The term “national security” is actually best defined as the personal security of the top Cabal members and their close associates and Cutouts who serve them and their policies directly.
Second, there are long term norms and strange subcultures that have emerged which have normalized these grave crimes against We The People and America. Breaking laws, violating the Constitution and Bill of Rights and doing abject evil on behalf of the Ruling Cabal is the new norm and what is not only expected but is often relished because many Feds love wearing the cloak of Cabal power. Many enjoy using and abusing this government power provided by the Cabal against ordinary Americans who they often label and view as under-socialized low-lifes and scum.
Recently a significant number of disgruntled active and former agents have leaked the actual methodologies used to circumvent the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, and current state and federal laws as well as RICO. Many leaked in secret, some now done openly to a degree never before dared occasionally as a group. More and more are now coming to believe that illegal and unconstitutional actions and attempts to use secrecy and national security to cover them up are serious RICO crimes in and of themselves, and nullify secrecy rights. I believe that this is a proper view that will soon be upheld in some federal courts, as populism continues to expand geometrically.
It’s a sad fact that some Cabal Leaders and their high associates and Cutouts, members of the US Congress and the administration, federal agents, and federal Judges are the biggest, most serious law-breakers in America. No doubt the top Ruling Cabal Policy-makers are the biggest lawbreakers who do the most unimaginably inconceivable evil of anyone and get away with it because they control Federal Investigations and have historically been able to stop them or sidetrack them anytime they want. The FBI and CIA and all alphabets including DHS are actually functioning as a large RICO crime syndicate, continually servicing the needs of the Ruling Cabal (which some call the Deep State or Secret Shadow Government SSG).
Take the amazing case of Lee Wanta, known to insiders as the 27-Trillion-Dollar financial genius.
Here is a man who became a Fed and lived by his Christian beliefs and values, filled with character and integrity and a great unwavering love for our Constitutional Republic of America and Rule of Law for everyone. Lee Wanta became known by President Reagan as a rare financial genius and was asked by President Reagan to help him take down the Evil Empire of the Soviet Union.
Lee Wanta was recruited from his multi-role Federal agent status by President Reagan to serve as his personal secret agent under the Totten Doctrine (which dated back to the American Civil War). He was falsely jailed on trumped up, fake charges even though he had diplomatic immunity. The real reason was that Lee Wanta refused to break the law and could not be compromised by the Cabal.
It was Lee Wanta who personally negotiated an end to the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain (Operation Stillpoint) and was able to negotiate a win/win Agreement of Cooperation with the New Russian Federation and the USA. For years the details and documents of this amazing operation were buried due to its deeply classified nature.
The SSG has spent many millions of USD trying to discredit Lee Wanta’s story, but has failed due to a smoking gun recording of his planned assassination by two puppet-masters. Thousands have heard this recording left by mistake on Ambassador Wanta’s DC answering machine by mistake. This recording prevented the perps from murdering Ambassador Wanta. Because Ambassador Wanta’s many LE roles were top secret, supporting documents were easily buried by the Cabal. Because the USG agencies make so many copies for different facilities, it has been possible to now recover a great deal of them. And these documents fully support Lee Wanta’s incredibly interesting mission to help transform the Soviet Union into the new western oriented, deeply Capitalistic Russian Federation which now supports the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church and supports religious freedom in this new Russian Federation.
The Ruling Cabal creates and mandates all the top USG policies. The earlier members hijacked America in 1913 when they used human compromise ops and bribery to pass their notably illegal and unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act, the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on Americans. Approximately 40% of our federal taxes paid goes to the Federal Reserve System (Banksters) as payments on the illegal interest they charge us for using what should have been our own real money in the first place, but which now has become Cabal-issued, interest-bearing debt-notes instead.
The Ruling Cabal can create money out of thin air at will, enough to buy, bribe and control every single part of the USG, from top to bottom. This evil, satanic Cabal has used its unlimited money power to construct a Hierarchy of its authority that engulfs the whole USG as well as every state government top to bottom. Thus today, America is now organized in a big Hierarchy of agents of Cabal control. When a Federal agent crosses the Cabal or its senior Cutouts, he or she is subject to the full weight of the Federal, State and local governments being brought down upon their head and a USG boot in their face 24/7 for the rest of their life.
What this means in practical terms is that if you are in Federal Law Enforcement or work for an alphabet or a USG or DOD contractor, and if you buck the Cabal, they can step on you wherever you are. A Cabal member at the top can give the order to step on you, and it will be passed down to your neighborhood level. Your local police will be told a false story about you labeling you as a criminal, pedophile or terrorist and they will always believe it and do whatever is asked of them, even if they break the law doing such. You will perhaps lose you job, become blacklisted, maybe jailed on a minor trumped up phony charge (like great America Heroes like Lee Wanta, Scott Bennett, or Susan Lindauer and a number of other great American Heroes). You may be attacked psychotronically, followed and gang-stalked by those paid under a DHS private contract.
If you are a federal or major corporate whistleblower, mandated policies set by the top Cabal members can result on the FBI being sicked on you and following you around, harassing you and keeping you from working. Or local satanic cults or retired Intel can be hired to surveil you or even gang stalk you. Most satanic cults are deputized by the CIA under national security like many large corporation and defense contractors, and their security departments are licensed to buy and use advanced remote psychotronic equipment in some cases.
If you are a big enough problem, the Cabal can order your elimination under national security. These wet-boy squads are now being deployed by top FBI officials with no Potus signatures as Signed Intelligence Findings. Some large corporations and their associations have their own wet teams and harassment or neutralization teams. Every agency is alleged to have a list of wet-boy contractors as does big Pharma too and many large DOD contractors. J. Edgar Hoover ran numerous teams, some pure Mafia as reported in the true story based book, The Squad by Michael Milan.
There are numerous true easily verifiable stories about Feds who had high levels of integrity and honesty and who refused to do illegal things and paid a deep price for not going along to get along.
Doubt this, then carefully research the case of great American hero Geral Sosbee, former FBI agent who refused to break the law and violate the Constitution. He disclosed FBI crimes, like the other great America hero Dr. Frederick Whitehurst. Frederick Whitehurst, M.D. used advanced data caching methods to protect himself, but Geral Sosbee was not so fortunate and has been harassed by senior FBI AGENTS for years upon the orders of the Ruling Cabal.
There are numerous other great American heroes who have been wrongly jailed using phony trumped up charges. Right after the Iran Contra, “drugs in/weapons” out through Mena, Arkansas. One whole federal prison in California (Vacaville) was filled with CIA pilots and CIA assets that were feared to have learned too much about the Iran/Contra affair (which was a complete violation of the Boland Amendment).
None of them had talked about what they did know, many had no idea what they were contributing to and thought they were serving the national security interest of the USA. All were illegally jailed on phony trumped up charges to discredit them and keep them from ever testifying about anything they did know about the massive arms out for drugs in through Mena, Arkansas. I know about this because I talked with one on the phone when he got out who was an associate of a friend of mine.
However, despite all these heavy-handed sanctions that are readily deployable by the Ruling Cabal to scare Federal agents from ever disclosing any major Cabal crimes they ever learn about or help cover up, more and more agents are leaking evidence about these Cabal crimes and even coming forth publicly.
Thanks to the emergence of the powerful worldwide Internet that communicates information and knowledge at the speed of electricity, information of Cabal crimes that are leaked spread like wildfire all over the Western world. The Internet is actually the world’s New Gutenberg Press.
If the FBI were ever deeply investigated by a non-corrupt Congressionally fully-supported honest special prosecutor or Inspector General, the evidence uncovered would show that the FBI set up the first Twin Towers bombing using the Blind Sheik and insisted that real explosives were used and also was deeply involved covering up the second Twin Towers bombings on 9-11-01.
Several years ago I predicted that because of the Internet, all secrecy would be ending and all Ruling Cabal Crimes would eventually become fully exposed. The number of average citizens who are learning of these serious Cabal crimes that include perpetual war-making for profit and pedophilia, sex trafficking, massive narcotics sales for black ops money and payoffs is increasing by the day. So far, it is not increasing quite fast enough to overpower the constant Cabal big lies, false-narratives and propaganda cover ups of the Cabal’s Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM).
However, every day more and more folks reject the CMMM and seek breaking news on Alt media websites through their personal computers and smart phones.
Most VT readers understand that the FBI’s main job is to create domestic false-flag terror, entrap retarded or mentally ill folks in such activities set up by the FBI and to cover up the serious crimes of the Ruling Cabal.
The FBI’s criminal investigations for the Department of Justice on financial frauds and crimes are sometimes impressive, but never go for the “Head of the Snake”, that is, the top leaders of the Ruling Cabal that sit at the top of their Hierarchy and set all the USG policies and pull all the strings. This leads some to believe that the FBI is merely enforcing some laws to limit any serious crime competition for the Ruling Cabal and its close associates and Cutouts. Certainly it is well known by the top LE experts on Ruling Cabal based pedophilia, child sex trafficking and child organ trafficking (all are related) that the FBI always covers these Cabal crimes up and runs protection for the Cabal, always.
The major crimes of the FBI are now being exposed in spades, and many of the good FBI special agents are now thoroughly disgusted with the top FBI leadership who have been functioning as RICO criminals for the Ruling Cabal.
And the worldwide Internet has become the greatest source of a new and broad based societal populism that is now perhaps and unstoppable threat to the Ruling Cabal.
The Cabal is believed by some insiders to be massively retaliating by A.I.-run back-removals of posts, censoring the large web forums they control like Facebook-type, google-type searches and Youtube-type web service providers, and by demonetizing the web as much as possible to restrict alt media websites and postings.
These actions to strike back at users who want truth and the Internet Truth-warriors that publish and broadcast it have begun to generate massive blowback, more spontaneous emerging populism and numerous new net private services to get around all these manipulations to restrict truth.
Everyday more and more evidence of serious Federal Agency and USG crimes of the Ruling Cabal are being disclosed on the Internet to the masses. We now know for certain that the distribution of all the crimes and unimaginable evil of the Ruling Cabal across a broad base of society will eventually erode the hegemony of the Cabal’s six Controlled Major Mass Media (a virtual News and Media Cartel and and illegal monopoly), will unconsolidate the CMMM and will then displace the Cabal from ruling power.
This massive diffusion of hard core truth via the Internet from legitimate truth-Warriors detailing the actual evils of the Cabal is the ultimate antidote for the Cabal’s illegitimate and parasitical rule over America.
Once American populism reaches a certain threshold and critical mass of approximately 12%, it is expected that the whole Cabal Major Mass Media News Cartel of false-news will fail and collapse. We are stuck now at about 11% and that is why the Cabal is now locking down the Internet’s social websites, dropping National Security Letters on many if not most big web providers, forcing them to censor and remove many posts, bring in censors and demonetized alt media or Truther posters.
All the Cabal’s incredible damage can be alleviated by “We The People” refusing to cooperate with the USG corruption and working to organize politically. Once this critical mass is reached and folks organize politically around the Alt Media disclosed Truth, We The People can take the American Republic right back to 1913. Then all the illegal, unconstitutional systems that the Cabal set up in America to hijack and parasitize it can be neutralized and removed one-by-one in rapid succession.
Only by neutralizing all these evil Ruling Cabal systems set up right after the Federal Reserve coup d’état in 1913 can the Republic and the US Constitution and Rule of Law ever be restored. Yes, we have to take the whole USG system back to the initial hijacking of America in 1913 by the Ruling Cabal of Banksters from the City of London. All the corrupt institutions they set up, including the roots of the the FBI, the IRS (their own private collection agency), the crooked Supreme Court which is not the highest court in the land which is the DC Court of Appeals, must be replaced or eliminated if unconstitutional.
We need our own banking as a part of the US Dept of the Treasury, with real money backed by gold, silver, metals, and other commodities to be used by us without pernicious usury applied.
Every single evil system the Satanic Pedophile-based Ruling Cabal set up in 1913 has to be addressed, neutralized and all the Cabal’s assets clawed back using Military enforcement, due to the presence of the Cabal’s crimes of Treason and Sedition related to their 100-year drive to establish an illegal, unconstitutional Globalist NWO without the US Republic.
Yes, We The People must take it all back to square one, the actual Cabal hijacking in 1913. Only then can new norms of honesty, integrity and righteousness be instilled in Federal Agents, instead of the self-serving, Cabal-created evil, anti-Constitutional, illegal agency subcultures.
After several years of steady investment growth and higher contributions from taxpayers, most of America’s public sector pension plans are still awash in red ink.
According to a new report from the Pew Charitable Trusts, the states collectively carry more than $1.4 trillion in pension debt—and only four states have at least 90 percent of the assets necessary to meet their long-term obligations to retirees. The Pew paper, which is based on states’ 2016 financial reports, shows that pension debt increased by about $295 billion since the previous year, making 2016 the 15th consecutive year in which state-level pension debt increased.
The really scary part is that pension debt keeps increasing despite the fact that taxpayers’ contributions to state-level pension plans have doubled as a share of state revenue in the past decade. Also worrisome: Pension plans are chasing increasingly risky investments. The gap between returns on safe investments and state pension plan investment assumptions was the highest in decades, the Pew researchers note, leaving pensions more vulnerable to market volatility and raising concerns that another downturn could drive already deeply indebted systems over a cliff.
Higher contributions from taxpayers and good returns in the market should bring well-structured pension plans back to good health. But only four states—New York, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Wisconsin—have at least 90 percent of the necessary assets to cover their retirement liabilities, Pew says.

There are two problems here. One is embedded in the very design of public sector pension plans. The other involves the politicians who are trusted to keep those plans funded properly.
“Our citizens should know the urgent facts…but they don’t because our media serves imperial, not popular interests. They lie, deceive, connive and suppress what everyone needs to know, substituting managed news misinformation and rubbish for hard truths…”—Oliver Stone
