The Tell-Tale Patterns Seen in Color Revolutions


Color revolutions center around large mass demonstrations.

Read “Color Revolution Revealed in 2019 ‘War Games’ Project”

The first phase is the confrontation. It takes place relatively peacefully. The authorities are simply concerned about the huge number of people in the city center. Such a mass of people need to eat, sleep and go to the toilet. There are not enough toilets for all the protesters, and the protest area acquires the smell of human feces and urine.

To establish minimum order, the authorities send ordinary, lightly armed police to the scene. But the presence of law enforcement officials is also used to amplify protest sentiments among the crowd. Suddenly, there is a call for the construction of barricades and the seizure of government buildings.

The second phase of the confrontation is more active and involves slugging it out with the authorities. By this time, the authorities are simply obliged to respond to what is happening. The city center is paralyzed by barricades, buildings are seized and there is the obligatory window smashing and looting.

This, in turn, requires the authorities to employ special forces, or riot police. But what can the riot police do when there are several hundred thousand protesters? Within two or three days, riot police are falling down from exhaustion and lack of sleep.

In parallel with the confrontation, another phase is underway: exhortation. At this time, representatives of the “peace-loving world community” begin to actively communicate with the president of the country.

A qualitative replacement of the protesters takes place: tough, severe, older men familiar with the tactics of street fighting. These are usually not locals, but come in from outside. Every effort is made to provoke riot police to violent retaliatory actions. But the riot police are not easily provoked.

Next, mysterious snipers appear on the scene. The first mentions of mysterious snipers appeared in 1991 in the confrontation in Vilnius, Lithuania, at the TV tower. The snipers shot peaceful demonstrators. Vilnius authorities filed charges against the Soviet Army and the CPSU. Several people from the military and party workers were sentenced to long prison terms. The collapse of the Soviet Union began with this sniper fire in Vilnius. And the new authorities in Vilnius have long been silent about the fact that the demonstrators were killed with the latest Mauser rifles, which were not in service with the army and special services.

In 2010, in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, mysterious snipers shot 80 people from city roofs. No sniper was found or captured. The acting president was overthrown as a bloody tyrant.

The bloodshed and civil war in Syria began with sniper shots in the city of Ham. Sixty-seven peaceful demonstrators were killed by unknown snipers.

In Yemen 2011 — during a peaceful demonstration — 17 demonstrators were killed by sniper fire. The dead were attributed to the government’s own secret services, and a coup brought down the government.

In Tunisia in 2011, 24 protestors were killed by sniper fire. In the course of further unrest, the president and the government fled.

In 2013, events in Libya began with shootings during a peaceful demonstration in Benghazi. Large number of injuries were reported in the stomach and groin. Snipers attributed to the guardsmen of Gaddafi. The uprising erupted and Gaddafi was overthrown.

In 2013, Cairo snipers shot pro-Morsi supporters. 140 people were killed and more than a thousand injured. The casualties received shots to the head.

Mysterious snipers appear on the streets of Kiev in 2014. Special forces are shot in the left eye. Subsequent hysteria in the media follows with calls to bring the regime to justice.

The term “bloody regime” is heard with all these events..

Par for the course, the Kiev snipers remain unknown. The issue of the nationality of snipers remains unsolved. The actions are blamed on the targeted regime, but we are calling them false flags.

How to permanently correct the broken voting system: Put serial numbers and watermarks on all voting ballots, just like we do with currency

Image: How to permanently correct the broken voting system: Put serial numbers and watermarks on all voting ballots, just like we do with currency

(Natural News) Anyone in their “right” mind knows that sleepy Joe did not get 80 million legitimate votes for POTUS in 2020, as tens of millions of mail-in ballots magically appeared after the polls closed. Video cameras captured thousands of “mules” loading and reloading ballots (for Biden) into machines and drop boxes, and most likely ballots that were counterfeit, counted multiple times, and even ones from dead folks and illegal immigrants.

Sounds like a very complicated issue to fix, but fortunately, it is very easy to fix. Consider that every paper money bill created has its own unique serial number, as well as every check written against a bank account. Why aren’t voting ballots created this way? Cash money bills also have water marks to protect them from counterfeiters. Are voting ballots just not that important? They seem even MORE important, as our entire constitution, democracy, economy, healthcare system, and national security are now falling apart at the seams thanks to counterfeit ballots. It’s time to make that change, and right now.

Time to put serial numbers and water marks on every voting ballot so they can never be counterfeited or counted multiple times

Cash money bills each have their own unique eight-digit-long code on them, with other letters and numbers that denote the YEAR the bill was made and where it was printed. Think about that for a minute. A total of eleven numbers and letters on each bill that can be traced using the present system, to find a specific transaction that took place, from a certain customer, at a specific merchant, retailer or bank teller. Now imagine verifying every single voting ballot this way. That would almost entirely systematically end the fraud and ‘stop the steal’ of future elections in this country.


Now, hold up money and passports to a bright light and you will see watermarks that are quite difficult to counterfeit. On a twenty dollar bill, there’s a watermark of Andrew Jackson’s face. That could easily be put on every voting ballot from now on. Watermarks like this help identify the grade of paper and the manufacturer of that paper. That means all of the counterfeit ballots made for Biden in 2020 would be traceable and could be tracked. Every ballot that was counted two or more times would be reduced to a single count in a matter of seconds, and the manufacturer surely busted for fraud, forgery, conspiracy, treason, and many other crimes.

Social security numbers on federal election ballots would ensure that non-American-citizens could not vote for our country’s leaders

Why would we ever want people from a foreign country helping decide who runs our country? Could it be because the Democrats are in debt (in more ways than one) to Communist China? Could it be because the Democrat Party is notoriously famous for giving free handouts, including money, food, housing, jobs, and drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants, assuming they will vote accordingly, if given the capability?

Welcome to our amazing technological world, where we protect money with serial numbers, rare paper, and watermarks, but voting ballots can be duplicated easier than a middle school math quiz on a standard copy machine.

When will voting ballots, like money, have QR codes, patterned micro-perforations, interact with magnets, and bear watermarks, serial numbers, or even social security numbers on them? And why not already, in this ever-digitizing world? Where’s Bill Gates with all his billions of dollars now? He must be too busy working on funding more toxic vaccines and cutting American farmland deals with the CCP.

The first watermark on a bill dates back to Italy in the 1200s. The English used watermarks on money in the late 1400s, so that papermakers and mouldmakers could not counterfeit money for revolutionary governments. By the 1840s, the English were producing the first 3-D watermarks. Today, in the USA, we have watermarks bearing the portraits on every bill from $5 dollar bills on up to $100 bills. These are also embedded to secure authentic banknotes.

Social Security numbers were created in the USA in 1936 to track earning histories of US citizens, and to compute benefit levels and entitlements. Every citizen has a social security number, that you need to apply for a job, or credit card, or a bank account, or private insurance, or to obtain a home loan, but NOT to vote. Why not? We track everything else, but never voting ballots.

THIS IS SERIOUS: Financial wizard Jamie Dimon predicts major recession coming to US thanks to worsening economy under Biden

Image: THIS IS SERIOUS: Financial wizard Jamie Dimon predicts major recession coming to US thanks to worsening economy under Biden

(Natural News) When Donald Trump was forced out of the White House after his reelection was stolen from him, he had the U.S. economy on hyperdrive.

Inflation was low, gas and diesel fuel prices were low, energy prices were down, housing starts were on the rise, wages had gone up, and a major portion of the country was already emerging from the idiotic COVID-19 lockdowns that his left-wing political opponents were using to crash the economy so they could blame it on him.

But now, less than two years later under the Biden regime, and just the opposite is true: Gas and diesel fuel prices up; cost of food up, clothing costs up; housing (rent) up; interest rates up; inflation across the board out of control. And never mind about Americans’ stock and retirement portfolios, as Biden’s economic mess has tanked the markets as well.

However, the really bad news is this: According to financial guru Jamie Dimon, things are not going to improve anytime soon and in fact, he sees a major recession coming early next year (though we have already had two straight quarters of negative growth so, technically speaking, we are already in a recession).

CNBC reported on Wednesday:

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon on Monday warned that a “very, very serious” mix of headwinds was likely to tip both the U.S. and global economy into recession by the middle of next year.

Dimon, chief executive of the largest bank in the U.S., said the U.S. economy was “actually still doing well” at present and consumers were likely to be in better shape compared with the 2008 global financial crisis.


“But you can’t talk about the economy without talking about stuff in the future — and this is serious stuff,” Dimon told CNBC’s Julianna Tatelbaum on Monday at the JPM Techstars conference in London.

CNBC added: “Among the indicators ringing alarm bells, Dimon cited the impact of runaway inflation, interest rates going up more than expected, the unknown effects of quantitative tightening and Russia’s war in Ukraine.”

“These are very, very serious things which I think are likely to push the U.S. and the world — I mean, Europe is already in recession — and they’re likely to put the U.S. in some kind of recession six to nine months from now,” Dimon added.

The financial guru said that while the Fed “waited too long and did too little” as inflation catapulted to four-decade highs, the central bank is now “clearly catching up.”

“And, you know, from here, let’s all wish him success and keep our fingers crossed that they managed to slow down the economy enough so that whatever it is, is mild — and it is possible,” he added.

But that means, for an unknown period of time, sky-high interest rates that are preventing the vast majority of Americans from financing literally anything at the moment that isn’t on a special rate like, say, a new car from a company offering special purchase rates. That means no used cars, no home financing refis, and little else in terms of buying on credit.

Dimon went on to say that what ultimately happens is still anyone’s guess but things are not looking good.

“It can go from very mild to quite hard and a lot will be reliant on what happens with this war. So, I think to guess is hard, be prepared,” he said.

Mike Shelby, CEO of Forward Observer, pushed back on President Biden’s claim this week that we may be in for a “slight recession.”

“Most, if not all, major investment banks say there’s a greater than 50% chance of a recession over the next 24 months. Several of those calls include a recession next year,” Shelby wrote in the firm’s daily subscriber email on Wednesday. “While there are predictions for a ‘mild’ recession, worsening liquidity issues, and Fed tightening risks, a financial crisis would almost certainly create a deep recession. There are additional risks that we suffer something worse than the 2008 collapse.”

  • September 29, 2021, Google deleted my YouTube account for “violating community guidelines” they’d implemented that same morning

September 29, 2021, Google deleted my YouTube account for “violating community guidelines” — guidelines they’d implemented that very same morning. September 28, 2022, I filed a lawsuit1 against Google, YouTube and Alphabet Inc. for breach of contract.2

As detailed in my complaint, YouTube unilaterally amended the contract without notice, which is a violation of its own terms, and then used this last-minute amendment to remove my content, which went back to 2005, the same year YouTube was founded. At the time YouTube deleted my content, I had more than 300,000 subscribers, and my videos had collectively garnered more than 50 million views.

While I disagreed with YouTube’s censorship, when its “COVID-19 misinformation” policy was implemented back in April 2021, I carefully avoided posting any content on YouTube that might violate that guideline.

In fact, over 16 years on the platform, I never once received notice of any “strike” against my channel for violation of community guidelines.

Then, on the morning of September 29, 2022, at 9 a.m. EDT, The Washington Post published an article titled “YouTube Is Banning Joseph Mercola and a Handful of Other Anti-Vaccine Activists.” According to the WaPo:

“YouTube is taking down several video channels associated with high-profile anti-vaccine activists including Joseph Mercola … As part of a new set of policies aimed at cutting down on anti-vaccine content on the Google-owned site.

YouTube will ban any videos that claim that commonly used vaccines approved by health authorities are ineffective or dangerous. The company previously blocked videos that made those claims about coronavirus vaccines, but not ones for other vaccines like those for measles or chickenpox.”

Six minutes AFTER the publication of that WaPo article, at 9.06 a.m. EDT, I received an email from YouTube informing me that my entire channel had been deplatformed and banned. They didn’t just take down old videos where I discussed vaccines. They took down my whole channel, including thousands of videos that were completely unrelated to vaccines.

So, as described in my complaint, the evidence suggests YouTube had considered this new guideline for some time — to not allow disparaging views against ANY approved vaccine — and they worked with a reporter from The WaPo to create that article ahead of time.

The WaPo article was then embargoed until the morning of September 29 in order to not allow me (or anyone else affected by this change) to review the new policy, take steps to bring my channel into compliance, or move my content to another platform. Instead, they simply deleted 16 years’ worth of intellectual property, without warning.

This is a clear violation of its own terms of service, which state that YouTube “will provide reasonable advance notice” of any changes to the terms of service, and that users will have “the opportunity to review them” and to remove content if they do not agree to the new terms.

The WaPo article coinciding with YouTube’s action is also a blatant illustration of how government, social media platforms and media collude and coordinate attacks to censor people and organizations with whom they do not agree, or who pose a threat to their propaganda narrative.

In a September 29, 2021, “News & Events” article posted by YouTube on its website, YouTube admitted they were “working closely with health authorities,” including “local and international health organizations” to come up with this new guideline.

YouTube’s terms of service also include a “three strikes” policy, where users are supposed to be given three warnings and opportunities to remove content that violates the guidelines BEFORE being banned.

I had no “strikes” against my channel on the day I was deplatformed and deleted. The fact that YouTube had to use underhanded tactics to create an excuse to get rid of us only goes to show how compliant we had actually been all along.

I’m also suing YouTube for unjust enrichment, as for the last 16 years, my video content, having generated in excess of 50 million views, has been of great financial benefit to YouTube, allowing them to increase advertising revenue on the site.

Additionally, they’ve refused to allow me to retrieve any of this content, which they still have in their possession. So, YouTube has unjustly benefited at my expense.

The YouTube lawsuit isn’t the only legal complaint we’ve filed to protect our rights in this new age of illegal censorship.

November 8, 2021, I, along with Ronnie Cummins, founder and director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) and the coauthor of my best-selling book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” our publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who wrote our foreword, also sued U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, both in her official and personal capacities, for violating our First Amendment rights.

The lawsuit was filed in response to Warren’s attempts to force to ban our book. In early September 2021, Warren sent a letter3 to Andy Jassy, chief executive officer of Amazon, demanding an “immediate review” of Amazon’s algorithms to weed out books peddling “COVID misinformation,” stressing that Amazon’s sale of such books was “potentially unlawful.”4 5 6

While she didn’t spell out what laws Amazon might be breaking, she appeared to be warning Jassy that the company may be held legally responsible for wrongful death and homicide by selling books that “misinform” readers about COVID-19, its treatment and COVID shots.

She singled out my book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” as a prime example of “highly-ranked and favorably-tagged books based on falsehoods about COVID-19 vaccines and cures” that she wanted banned. She wrote:7

“Dr. Mercola has been described as ‘the most influential spreader of coronavirus misinformation online. Not only was this book the top result when searching either ‘COVID-19’ or ‘vaccine’ in the categories of ‘All Departments’ and ‘Books’; it was tagged as a ‘Best Seller’ by Amazon and the ‘#1 Best Seller’ in the ‘Political Freedom’ category.

The book perpetuates dangerous conspiracies about COVID-19 and false and misleading information about vaccines. It asserts that vitamin C, vitamin D and quercetin … can prevent COVID-19 infection … And the book contends that vaccines cannot be trusted …”

As a government official, it is illegal for Warren to violate the U.S. Constitution, and pressuring private businesses to do it for her is not a legal workaround. As noted in our complaint:

“Once upon a time, the First Amendment was understood to guarantee that books challenging governmental orthodoxy could be sold without fear of governmental intimidation or reprisal.

Almost sixty years ago, in Bantam Books v. Sullivan, 372 U.S. 58 (1963), the Supreme Court held that state officials violated the First Amendment by sending letters to booksellers warning that the sale of certain named books was potentially unlawful.

The ‘vice’ in such letters and in the ‘veiled threat’ of legal repercussions they communicated, explained the Court, is that they allow government to achieve censorship while doing an end-run around the judiciary, ‘provid[ing] no safeguards whatever against the suppression of … constitutionally protected’ speech, thus effecting an unconstitutional ‘prior restraint.’

It made no difference that the officials who sent the letter lacked the ‘power to apply formal legal sanctions’ — i.e., that the officials did not themselves have the power to sanction or prosecute the booksellers in any way. Indeed this fact made the unconstitutionality more apparent.

The officials ‘are not law enforcement officers; they do not pretend that they are qualified to give or that they attempt to give distributors only fair legal advice … [T]hey acted … not to advise but to suppress.’

It also made no difference, the Court expressly found, that the letters were framed as mere ‘exhort[ation]’ or that the booksellers were in theory ‘free’ to ignore the letters, because the officials had ‘deliberately set about to achieve the suppression of publications deemed ‘objectionable’,’ and ‘people do not lightly disregard public officers’ veiled threats.’

Today, certain members of the United States Congress have apparently forgotten, or think they are above, the law set forth in Bantam Books.”

There’s no doubt our book, “The Truth About COVID-19,” is constitutionally protected speech, and that Warren’s letter is calling on Amazon to suppress protected speech.

Yet, ever since the start of the pandemic, government has systematically sought to suppress the kind of information shared in our book, using the same tactic as Warren used against us here — warning internet-based companies that if they don’t censor these views, the full weight of the government’s wrath will be turned against them.

While lawsuits like these are time consuming and costly, they are necessary. Free speech is worth fighting for, because if we lose that, then we lose everything.

As discussed in “The Biggest Casualty of COVID-19,” individual rights have been repeatedly trampled and violated ever since the beginning of this pandemic, and it’s only going to get worse from here if we don’t fight back.

It’s now clear that we have only two choices: Freedom, or life under authoritarian rule. There’s no middle ground. As the old adage goes, “Give an inch and they’ll take a mile.” It’s true that the judicial system has in many ways been weaponized against us as well, but it is still our best chance at setting the record straight and reining in these egregious rights violations.

A Powerful Mob Behind State Medical Boards

a powerful mob behind state medical boards

By: Tessa Lena

  • Federation of State Medical Boards is a very influential private non-profit whose official mission is vaguely defined as “representing the state medical and osteopathic regulatory boards”

  • Through their influence and their significant lobbying efforts, they act as a force for censoring and punishing physicians who don’t toe the official party line

  • Since 1990s, FSMB has been attacking “alternative” medicine practitioners

  • This organization is said to have significantly contributed to the problem of opioid crisis

  • Recently, FSMB was exposed by a Dr. Bruce Dooley, an American doctor in New Zealand

Recently, Bruce Dooley, an American doctor in New Zealand, exposed the role of the Federation of State Medical Boards — an influential AmericanNGO — in shaping not just American but also international health policy in favor of Big Pharma, all under the guise of “protecting” patients’ rights.

You might have heard that last year, the Federation pushed for harsh censorship and persecution of independently-thinking physicians. In July 2021, it released the following statement:

“Physicians who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license. Due to their specialized knowledge and training, licensed physicians possess a high degree of public trust and therefore have a powerful platform in society, whether they recognize it or not.

They also have an ethical and professional responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients and must share information that is factual, scientifically grounded and consensus-driven for the betterment of public health. Spreading inaccurate COVID-19 vaccine information contradicts that responsibility, threatens to further erode public trust in the medical profession and puts all patients at risk.”

Taking a cue from FSMB, in September 2021, the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) issued a statement of support of FSMB’s position, while hinting that “misinformation” really meant any medical opinion that did not support the pharma-friendly establishment views.

Then in April 2022, FSMB released another statement whose Orwellian hypocrisy is in a league of its own. This is how it started:

“Truthful and accurate information is central to the provision of quality medical care. It is instrumental for obtaining informed consent from patients and supports the trust that patients hold in the medical profession. Honesty, truthfulness and transparency are virtues that society expects of all health professionals, and they are traits that are indispensable to physicians carrying out their professional responsibilities and interacting with patients and the public.

False information is harmful and dangerous to patients, and to the public trust in the medical profession, especially when licensed physicians disseminate misinformation or disinformation about a disease or illness, including its prevention, management or treatment…”

“Physicians must remain objective and impartial in the delivery of information and in selecting or curating information that is deemed relevant to patient care and public health. If a treatment is recommended over alternatives, the recommendation must be based in scientific evidence, rather than opinion or motives that do not benefit the patient’s health or that of the public.”

Good words, right? However, here is the conclusion they drew:

“While respect for patient autonomy is an essential component of the physician-patient relationship, neither the patient’s autonomy, nor the physician’s professional autonomy, is absolute. Only reasonable [by whose standards?] requests on the part of the patient should be granted, and only scientifically justified [again, by whose standards?] treatment options should be recommended by the physician.”

They also used their original language and stated, again, that physicians who spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation risk “disciplinary action, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license.” So much for honesty, scientific integrity, and informed consent!

And just a few days ago, on September 24, 2022, the President and CEO of FSMB, Humayun Chaudhry, delivered a talk at a plenary session at the ABMS Conference 2022 on the topic of “Misinformation in Health Care: The Implications for Professionalism and the Public Trust.” Follow the science, sigh. Do as I say and not as I do?

In the meanwhile, in California, the alarming Assembly Bill 2098 was passed by the California Senate on August 29 2022 and is now awaiting Gov. Gavin Newsom’s signature. The bill is seeking to “designate the dissemination of misinformation or disinformation related to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, or “COVID-19,” as unprofessional conduct.”

Upside-down language is a technique that “hacks” our instincts in order to trick us into acting against our best interests.

“Upside-down language is treacherous because in the natural world, the method of “disguising as a friend in order to catch prey” is strictly a hunting technique — but today, the power holders apply it across the board, to the entire population. Which then, if we think about it honestly, makes it clear what kind of relationship we’ve been having with the Machine.”

The Federation of State Medical Boards has perfected this method to a fascinating degree. They seems to be loyal to the prestigious goal of protecting the interests of the owners of the pharmaceutical industry — but they are wrapping their pro-Big-Pharma campaigns in the warm and fuzzy language about protecting the rights and the safety of the patient. For shame …

FSMB is a private organization with a non-profit status whose official mission is very vaguely defined as “representing the state medical and osteopathic regulatory boards – commonly referred to as state medical boards – within the United States, its territories and the District of Columbia.”

In their own words, it “supports its member boards as they fulfill their mandate of protecting the public’s health, safety and welfare through the proper licensing, disciplining, and regulation of physicians and, in most jurisdictions, other health care professionals.”

”The FSMB serves as a national voice for state medical boards, supporting them through education, assessment, data, research and advocacy while providing services and initiatives that promote patient safety, quality health care and regulatory best practices.”

What does it mean? Like I said in my earlier Substack, “in what capacity, and by what authority, does this influential group represent and support state medical boards?” Who knows.

To add more detail from the Alliance for Natural Health, they are a “private 501(c)(6) trade association that purports to represent the seventy state medical and osteopathic boards of the US and its territories, and cosponsors the United States Medical Licensing Examination. It is tremendously powerful: whatever it suggests in terms of medical care policies are often adopted by the state medical boards.

A private trade association with no public funding, transparency, or accountability arguably has the power to interpret state medical law and grant or revoke medical licenses!”

FSMB was created in 1912, on the tail of the 1910 Flexner report that was commissioned by the Rockefeller interests and used to “consolidate” the American (and then international) medical industry “under the boot of the likes of the Rockefellers.”

The sources of FSMB’s funding seem to be veiled in secrecy, short of the publicly available information on the non-profit directory Guidestar. Dr. Paul Martin Kempen provided some more insight into the FSMB and wrote:

“Despite the implications of its name, the Federation of State Medical Boards, Inc. (FSMB … is not a governmental authority. None of these entities have official legislative or regulatory power afforded by any federal or state government.FSMB, however, uses its contacts and influence with state medical boards (SMBs) to advance its corporate products. This may be called ‘crony capitalism.’”

According to ProPublica, the list of agencies it lobbies since 2010 includes the following:

“U.S. Senate, House of Representatives, Centers For Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Health & Human Services – Dept of (HHS), Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Agency for Health Care Policy & Research, Office of Natl Drug Control Policy (NDCP), Veterans Affairs – Dept of (VA), White House Office, Defense – Dept of (DOD), Natl Institutes of Health (NIH), Executive Office of the President (EOP), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Government Accountability Office (GAO), Justice – Dept of (DOJ), Defense – Dept of (DOD), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Homeland Security – Dept of (DHS), U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Office of the Vice President of the United States, Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP), Indian Health Service, Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Transportation – Dept of (DOT), Education – Dept of, Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).”

And here is a partial list of bills:

partial list of bills

It is worth noting that they also seem to be on a mission to attack hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Case in point: two bills that they list on their website as their key “advocacy” issues:


On a side note, here is a comprehensive article by Dr. Meryl Nass about the attack on hydroxychloroquine, and here is another, also comprehensive, article by Dr. Pierre Kory about the attack on ivermectin. Both are worth checking out!

In her recent Substack, Dr. Colleen Huber described the lawsuit of the brave pediatrician, Dr. Paul Thomas, and his Amended Complaint that “goes into detail about the nefarious acts of this outfit, and its attempts to throw the kitchen sink and all the dishes in it against doctors who question the vaccine narrative.”

Here is a quote from Dr. Thomas’ Amended Complaint in which he details the direct involvement of the Federation of State Medical Boards in the creation of the opioid crisis:

128. The Federation of State Medical Boards (“Federation”) is a secretive, private, and powerful organization located in Texas. The Federation is not transparent and is unaccountable to the public. The Federation claims to represent the state medical boards in the United States and support them. In fact, the Federation wields an enormous about of power over the practice of medicine in all 50 States.

129. The Federation is funded and controlled by big pharmaceutical companies. According to poll data, Big Pharma is the least trusted industry. The Federation serves to whitewash Big Pharma’s narrative and control the state medical boards to the benefit of Big Pharma. The Federation does the bidding of Big Pharma. For example, the Federation played a major role in the disastrous opiate crisis.

130. Led by Purdue Pharma, the maker of Oxycontin, opiate manufacturers gave almost $2 million to the Federation. During the time this money was pouring in, the Federation wrote new guidelines for opiate prescribing, in which it explained that what looked like addiction was not really addiction. The guidelines included this statement: “Millions of Americans suffer from debilitating pain – a condition that, for some, can be relieved through the use of opioids.”

131. The Federation pressured medical boards to adopt the new guidelines. It created continuing medical education courses to teach doctors to prescribe more opioids to their patents. It sought to reassure doctors that following the new guidelines would reduce the likelihood of disciplinary action. Indeed, the Federation encouraged state medical boards to discipline doctors for the undertreatment of pain.

132. The Federation also promoted a book titled “Responsible Opioid Prescribing” based on its guidelines designed to encourage the broad use of opioids for non-terminal patients. The Federation encouraged the overprescribing and worsening of the opioid addiction. A four-fold increase in prescribing opioids was associated with a four-fold increase in opioid related overdose deaths.

133. The Federation was a primary purveyor of misinformation about opiates that caused a man-made epidemic of addition and death. The opioid epidemic was caused by an industry-funded campaign to encourage opioid prescribing in which the Federation had a prominent role.

134. The Federation promotes whatever is in the interests of Big Pharma. It is part of the cartel of entities that banded to together to falsely assert that the COVID-19 vaccines were safe, effective, and necessary. It labels as “misinformation” anything that would create public hesitancy in taking a vaccine, including childhood or COVID vaccines.

To the Federation, “misinformation” about vaccines represents any statement or scientific evidence that differs from the prevailing narrative of stakeholders who most stand to profit from vaccines. The Federation encourages state boards to discipline any doctor who shares information contrary to the benefit of the pharmaceutical companies.

135. The Federation has undue influence over the discipline of doctors by the state medical boards. It publishes the Guide to Medical Regulation in the United States. Guidance on physician discipline from the Federation become de facto requirements to state medical boards. The Federation publishes a quarterly journal titled “Journal of Medical Regulation.”

More detail from a 2012 article published by the Alliance for Natural Health: “the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and MedPage Today reported [in February 2012] that the FSMB asked for $100,000 from Big Pharma to help create and distribute the organization’s new policy on pain medication to their 700,000 practicing doctors.

The federation won’t say how much money it received from industry, but estimated that it will cost $3.1 million for its campaign.”

“And what is this campaign? To get the word out about ‘safe’ use of opioid analgesics in the treatment of chronic pain! That’s right, FSMB’s new policy favors the use of opioids for long-term pain management, despite an epidemic of painkiller abuse and addiction (not to mention the terrible crime rates that accompany it) — and a lack of scientific support for this use of the drugs.”

“If you think drug manufacturers might be pleased to contribute to such a campaign, you would be right. The University of Wisconsin, with funding from Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, developed a continuing education course for doctors based on the FSMB’s manual.

This is the drug company that in 2007 paid $600 million in fines in settlement of a guilty plea for having misled doctors and patients when it claimed that the drug was less likely to be abused than traditional narcotics.”

Safe and effective, and by that they seemingly meant, “lucrative and addictive!”

According to the same 2012 overview by the Alliance for Natural Health:

“It seems that the FSMB was infiltrated in the late 1990s by the so-called “quackbuster” contingent — people openly hostile to complementary and alternative medicine. At the 1996 annual meeting of the FSMB in Chicago, there was a radical shift from a focus on health fraud as defined by the federal government (overbilling, un-bundling, and kickbacks) to another definition of health fraud: alternative medical care.

It seems a concerted effort to label innovation in health care — and especially any natural treatment that competes with an emphasis on drugs and surgery as the ideal for modern medicine — as mere ‘quackery.’”

“Since then, the FSMB has challenged integrative medicine as being outside the “standard of care,” defining the term to suit its own purposes; in this, the organization mirrors and amplifies the American Medical Association’s antipathy toward integrative medicine. Because practicing outside the standard of care is grounds for a state medical board to revoke a doctor’s license, the attempt to exclude CAM therapies from the standard of care is a major threat to consumers’ access to integrative doctors.”

“If we used to be puzzled about the FSMB’s motives in attacking integrative medicine, this latest move has made it clear that a good part of it may just be about the money. Last Tuesday the article was published in 2012], the Senate Finance Committee launched an investigation into the close ties between pharmaceutical companies, the FSMB, and “nonprofit pain groups” like the American Pain Foundation.

The Foundation received 90 percent of its $5 million in funding in 2010 from the drug and medical device industry, and its guides for patients, journalists, and policymakers downplay the risks associated with opioid painkillers while exaggerating the benefits from the drugs.

Tuesday morning, two senators from the Finance Committee sent letters to the American Pain Foundation and four other pain nonprofits, three drug companies, and the FSMB, expressing concern about their relationship with each other. Tuesday evening, the Foundation announced that it would “cease to exist, effective immediately.” Coincidence?”

Earlier 1995, FSMB established a “Special Committee on Health Care Fraud” and issued a document that lamented the fact that people were taking their money to alternative health practitioners. In 1999, the committee’s name was changed to the “Special Committee on Questionable and Deceptive Health Care Practices.” In 2000, the committee appears to have been replaced by the “Special Committee for the Study of Unconventional Health Care Practices (Complementary and Alternative Medicine).”

The 1995 Committee document below was eventually deleted from the FBSM website but an archived version is still available. In April 1997, FSMB’s governing body accepted this Report as policy. Quote:

“It has been estimated that up to $100 billion is lost to health care fraud in the United States annually. Medical interventions that do not conform to prevailing scientific standards are becoming increasingly popular. It is estimated that in 1990, Americans made 425 million visits to providers of “unconventional” medicine, exceeding the number of visits to all U.S. primary care physicians, at a cost of approximately $13.7 billion.

It may be recognized that some alternative therapies may be beneficial and therefore warrant further investigation and possible integration into mainstream medical practice. However, because of the lack of reliable scientific evidence and clinical validation, safety has not been established for most of these modalities.”

Their 2002 document elaborates on the extended definition of “harm” that can come from their competitors — but not a peep about the harm that comes from their donors and sponsors. Here is how they estimate potential harm caused my “alternative” medicine:

  • Economic harm, which results in monetary loss but presents no health hazard;

  • Indirect harm, which results in a delay of appropriate treatment, or in unreasonable expectations that discourage patients and their families from accepting and dealing effectively with their medical conditions;

  • Direct harm, which results in adverse patient outcome.

As they say, it is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it. Thus, today’s lamentable state of affairs is a combination of deliberate top-down racketeering with the purpose of getting rid of economic competition — and sincere ideological arrogance of people on the ground. Just one look at some of these old commercials makes it clear.

I would like to end this story with a 1947 DDT commercial. Shut your eyes and ears. Don’t think. Anything that comes from the Big Corporate Father is safe and effective!

Aussie medical practitioners unite against edict penalizing them for opposing government narratives on COVID

(Natural News) The recently founded Australian Medical Professionals Society (AMPS), operating as an alternative to the Australian Medical Association (AMA), is pushing for medical transparency to protect patients and ensure open scientific debates.

“Our AMPS members are refusing to be silent, even under threats to our registrations. We are fighting for law reform to provide our patients with evidence-based care rather than uncritical politically driven health practice,” they wrote in a statement published in Spectator Australia.

The group was formed in response to the joint directive released in March 2022 by the Medical Board of Australia and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) that admonished healthcare providers who dare to question the mainstream Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) narrative.

The government directive warned against “any promotion of anti-vaccination statements or health advice that contradicts the best available scientific evidence or seeks to actively undermine the national immunization campaign, including via social media.” Such actions, it added, are “not supported by national boards and may be in breach of the codes of conduct and subject to investigation and possible regulatory action.”

It also included instructions to ensure doctors’ compliance with government guidelines for social media use. Moreover, it ordered doctors not to “discourage their patient or client from seeking vaccination,” even if the doctors themselves choose not to get injected due to conscientious objection.


APHRA also warned that anyone who shares “false, misleading or deceptive” information about COVID-19, “including anti-vaccination material,” may face persecution.

AMPS revealed that many healthcare providers have been disciplined or suspended for challenging the public health messaging despite having scientific shreds of evidence to support their professional view, including Drs. Mark Hobart, Paul Oosterhuis and Denes Borsos.

California doctors challenge law punishing dissent from the “scientific consensus”

Meanwhile in California, Los Angeles psychiatrist Dr. Mark McDonald and Orange County primary care physician Dr. Jeff Barke filed a lawsuit in the District Court for the Central District of California, in relation to the passing of Assembly Bill (AB) 2098.

AB 2098, signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom into law on Sept. 30, authorized the Medical Board of California to pursue professional sanctions and even license revocation against doctors who decide against their COVID-19 narrative. (Related: California legislators are on a mission to de-license ALL doctors in the state who challenge covid dogma.)

“[AB 2098] puts patients at risk. Requiring physicians to consider the state’s narrative when making a medical decision, is bad medicine and dangerous. Consensus in science only occurs when dissenting opinions are censored,” said Barke, a founding member of America’s Frontline Doctors.

McDonald and Barke also filed papers seeking a preliminary injunction to protect their free speech rights as the case unfolds.

“Reasonable minds disagreed then, and continue to disagree now, about any number of such topics, but the search for truth cannot be furthered by a government edict imposing orthodoxy from above, punishing those who disagree with the loss of their profession and their livelihood,” the suit noted.

It also alleged that the new law “intrudes into the privacy of the doctor-patient relationship” by “replacing the medical judgment of the government for that of the licensed professional and chilling the speech of those who dissent from the official view.”

Attorney Daniel Suhr, who represents the doctors, said: “We rely on our doctors to give us their best medical advice, yet the State of California is stopping doctors from doing just that. That’s not just wrong, it’s unconstitutional.”
