Propaganda Perpetuates the Pandemic and Censorship

  • COVID-19 is the largest, most sophisticated propaganda operation in history. Psychological techniques were extensively used during 2020 to incite fear and panic in the population

  • Propaganda strategies were also used to get people to support and defend irrational COVID measures such as masking, isolation, social distancing, lockdowns and jab mandates

  • What made the COVID propaganda so much more effective than any previous propaganda operation is the fact that a virus is the perfect enemy. It’s invisible, could be carried by anyone, including those you love the most, and could “get” you anywhere

  • Classical rhetoric is about persuasion through argument. It appeals to logic. Propaganda, on the other hand, is a kind of subrational manipulation that appeals to our most basic instincts, such as fear. An informal definition of propaganda is “an organized attempt to get people to think or do something — or not think or do something”

  • The Great Lie is possible because the more divorced a lie is from reality, the more likely it is to succeed, as most people are reluctant to think that authority figures would lie and completely ignore reality

In the video above,1 2 initially published in August 2021, professor Piers Robinson, Ph.D. — co-director of the Organization for Propaganda Studies, whose research specialty is organized persuasive communication and contemporary propaganda — speaks to Asia Pacific Today about propaganda in the age of COVID.

As noted by Robinson, COVID-19 is unquestionably the largest, most sophisticated propaganda operation in history. Psychological techniques were extensively used during 2020 to incite fear and panic in the population, while other persuasion strategies were used to get people to support and defend COVID measures such as masking, isolation, social distancing, lockdowns and jab mandates.

Indeed, propaganda is what allowed for draconian and unscientific COVID measures to be implemented in the first place. Without propaganda and simultaneous censorship of opposing views, little of what we’ve been through would have been possible.

As noted by Robinson, while the use of state propaganda could initially be justified as a necessary means to achieve a public health objective — protecting people from COVID-related illness and death — it quickly became apparent that this was not the case, and likely never was.

Today, three years in, it’s quite evident that COVID is a psychological operation. For example, since 2022 at the latest, COVID has been nothing more than another endemic respiratory infection, much like the common cold, yet the pandemic has not been declared “over.”

We now also have clear evidence that the COVID jabs don’t prevent infection or spread of the virus, which negates the entire premise for vaccine passports, yet they’re being pushed anyway. In short, COVID-19 was (and still is) a means to an end; to suspend and strip us of Constitutional rights and civil liberties, and to further social, political and financial restructuring objectives outside democratic processes.

Another propaganda expert who has spoken about the overt use of propaganda to create and maintain the pandemic is professor Mark Crispin Miller, Ph.D., whom I interviewed in June 2021 about the academic censorship he experienced at New York University.

Ironically, it was his teaching students how to question and resist propaganda that brought on the curtailment of his academic freedom, after teaching this important subject for over 20 years. Like Robinson, Miller believes that what we’ve experienced over the past three years is a propaganda “masterpiece” of unequaled scale and sophistication.

It began with the outbreak of an unknown pathogen in China. Media showed images of people allegedly dropping dead in the streets. This has never happened anywhere else since then, which strongly suggests those images were misappropriated for one purpose — to spread fear.

According to Miller, the type of fearmongering used to propagate the belief that COVID-19 was a lethal threat was the most devastating ever used in propaganda history. What made the COVID propaganda so much more effective than any previous propaganda operation was the fact that a virus is the perfect enemy.

It’s invisible, could be carried by anyone, including those you love the most, and could “get” you anywhere. As explained by Miller, in previous propaganda operations, the enemy was typically portrayed as having the ability to “infect” the people and the nation with its evil.

This was the case both with anti-communist propaganda and the “war on terror.” Communism was likened to an infectious disease set to ravage the nation, and terrorists were likened to a pandemic that had to be controlled and combated. With COVID, the propaganda shifted to the thing of fear itself — an actual virus.

Despite a long-held understanding that asymptomatic infection doesn’t exist, the propagandists even managed to convince the public that perfectly healthy people could spread the virus. It was a complete fiction, a scientific falsehood, which is how we know that the pandemic narrative was a psychological operation, yet people were so fearful, they didn’t question it.

As noted by blogger and propaganda analyst Klark Barnes,3 if we want to be free, we must know what propaganda is and how it works. Classical rhetoric is about persuasion through argument. It appeals to logic. Propaganda, on the other hand, is a kind of subrational manipulation that appeal to our most basic instincts.

An informal definition of propaganda is “an organized attempt to get people to think or do something — or not think or do something.” Propaganda can be true or false, or somewhere in between, and can be used for both good and ill. Public service ads encouraging you not to smoke, for example, are a form of benevolent propaganda.

The problem with propaganda is that it’s inherently biased and one-sided, which can become outright dangerous if the other side is censored.

This is particularly true when it comes to medicine and health, and the censoring of COVID-19 treatment information and the potential hazards of the COVID shots is a perfect example of this. State propaganda and war propaganda also rely heavily on the incitement of fear and anger, which makes people behave in ways they normally wouldn’t.

As noted by Barnes, media forecasts of other “imminent ordeals” are also a way “to keep widespread fear and anger simmering:”4

“The possible next acts include a cyber-attack (‘by Russia’); a breakdown of the world supply chain, and consequent food shortages, or famine (likely to be blamed on Russia); a heightened ‘climate crisis,’ necessitating further lockdowns …

‘[T]terrorist’ attacks, by ‘white supremacists’ and angry blacks (portending war between the races); an ‘alien attack’ on Planet Earth, as in The War of the Worlds or Independence Day; and — of course — another plague or two, or three, caused by some further COVID ‘variant,’ smallpox … the Marburg virus, and/or whatever other pathogen, real or imaginary, might serve the same old purpose …

Such looming sequels to the COVID propaganda … would also each inflict a vast amount of further suffering on humanity — and so those of us who study propaganda critically, as public intellectuals, must speak out loud and clear, to set things right.”

According to Barnes, setting things right involves, first and foremost, sharing the truth. Propaganda narratives that must be countered with careful and thorough analysis include but are not limited to:

  • The origin of SARS-CoV-2

  • The actual lethality of SARS-CoV-2

  • How COVID “cases” were fraudulently augmented using flawed PCR tests that cannot identify active infection

  • The futility of lockdowns and their catastrophic harms

  • The “homicidal impact” of standard COVID treatment

  • The availability and effectiveness of early treatment protocols

  • How key terms such as “pandemic,” “cases,” “herd immunity,” “vaccine” and “fully vaccinated” were redefined in order to enable the pandemic narrative

  • The likely motives behind the alleged crisis

  • The ever-growing toll of the experimental “vaccination” program

Over the past three years, I’ve written many articles detailing all of these. But setting the record straight on individual propaganda topics is not enough. If we are to retain our freedoms, Barnes believes the public also needs to get much savvier about propaganda overall.

For decades, we had a free press that helped keep pro-industry advertising lies in check. Professional investigative journalists working for magazines, newspapers and broadcast outlets would write in-depth exposés, outing the truth behind deceptive advertising and countering industry propaganda with science, statistics and other documented facts.

As a result of the free press doing its job, ineffective or toxic products were often driven off the market. The answer that industry came up with for this problem was to control the press with advertising dollars. By becoming a major revenue stream, advertisers more or less automatically ended up controlling the content.

Even though media management and editors will deny it, if advertisers don’t want you to speak about certain issues that might adversely impact their business, all they have to do is threaten to pull their ads.

At that point, you have to make a decision: Ditch the truth or ditch your income. Most news organizations will ditch the truth for payment, and simply will not run reports that might harm the bottom line of its advertisers. As explained by Barnes:5

“That real-life Ministry of Truth was not set up ex nihilo by some iron faction of totalitarian oligarchs but gradually took shape out of a corporate media cartel with interlocking boards, heavily dependent on the advertising revenues of Amazon, Big Pharma … and the media’s own parent companies … with its assets closely managed by BlackRock, Vanguard and UBS …

[As] that vast commercial system has become more unified, it also has maintained, or even tightened, its covert relations with the military and ‘intelligence community’ …

And while the commercial media system has been thus corrupted top to bottom … the ‘public’ media and ‘alternative’ press — from NPR, PBS, the BBC and CBC … to nearly every single outlet on ‘the left’ — have also been absorbed into the juggernaut primarily by their funding through such sturdy CIA pass-throughs as the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Open Society Institute …

[The] ‘free press’ … has been turned into a bio-fascist fear machine, its propaganda services assured by Bill Gates’ ‘strategic media partnerships,’ and the concomitant ‘fact-checking’ operation that he also largely funds.

The propaganda gushing daily, hourly, from that system also has depended on the wisdom of such global PR firms as Weber Shandwick, Edelman and Hill+Knowlton Strategies … and, within the Fourth Estate, the rise … of ‘journalists’ prepared, in university, to be far less concerned with honest journalism than with … serving ‘social justice.'”

Indeed, as Barnes notes, advertising companies have likely played an important organizational role in the COVID propaganda. Another major one, which I suspect may have had a central role, is the Publicis Groupe. I detailed some of its many connections in “The Web of Players Trying to Silence Truth.”

In summary, Publicis represents a long list of major companies within the technology, pharmaceutical and banking industries in more than 100 countries.6 These companies, in turn, have various partnerships with the U.S. government and global nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

Publicis has ties to NewsGuard/HealthGuard, educational institutions, Big Tech companies like Google, Microsoft and Bing, the U.S. State Department and Department of Defense, global technocratic institutions like the World Health Organization, national and global NGOs like the Center for Countering Digital Hate. And, it dominates health websites like WebMD and Medscape.

Taken together, this explains how certain views can be so effectively erased. Publicis itself is also a partner of the World Economic Forum, which is leading the call for a “reset” of the global economy and our way of life. As such, Publicis appears to be coordinating the suppression of information that runs counter to the technocratic narrative.

Marshall McLuhan once said,7 “Little lies don’t need to be protected. But the great lies are protected by public incredulity.” Basically, people will deny really big lies by saying “Come on, you’re crazy, they wouldn’t do that.” It’s far easier to call people “conspiracy theorists” than it is to face the possibility that what they’re saying is true.

“Little lies don’t need to be protected. The big lies are protected by public incredulity. ~ Marshall McLuhan”

In a November 4, 2022, article,8 clinical and public health physician Dr. David Bell noted that the more divorced a lie is from reality, the more likely it is to succeed, thanks to the quirks of human nature and normal psychology:

“In a former role I had a boss who lied a lot. The lies were pure fantasy, but massive in scope and delivered with sincerity. They were very successful.

This success was based on the reluctance of most people to consider that someone in a position of authority in a humanitarian organization would completely ignore all semblance of reality. People assumed the claims must be true as fabricating information to that extent in those circumstances seemed to defy logic.

The principle of Really Big Lies is based on the lies being so divorced from reality that the listener will assume their own perception must be flawed, rather than doubt the claims of the person telling the lies. Only an insane or ridiculous person would make such outlandish claims, and a credible institution would not employ such a person.

Therefore, given that the institution is apparently credible, the statements must also be credible, and the listener’s prior perception of reality was therefore flawed. Lesser lies, by contrast, are likely to be perceived as sufficiently close to known reality to be demonstrably wrong. Inventing truth can be more effective than bending it.”

I believe this is precisely the strategy employed by Big Pharma, health agencies, government officials and the deep state propaganda arm over the past three years. Their claims have been so far from any semblance of reality, anyone aware of the facts has been left feeling more than a little crazy.

Unfortunately, while most humans have a moral and ethical compass, few end up following it when confronted by psychopaths in authority and the peer pressure to conform. As noted by Bell, good team players almost always end up supporting false narratives, and those who refuse to go along with what are clearly lies tend to be but a tiny minority.

As Bell correctly points out, over the past three years, health care workers, patients, researchers, academics and public health employees have been forced to embrace a long list of fantasy-based dogmas that are contradicted by prior public health orthodoxy.

But it’s the sharp break from factual reality that makes it impossible to question them because, if you do, you’re now questioning “the entire current hierarchy of public health,” Bell says. To quote Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re not attacking him when you question his irrational flip-flopping, you’re questioning science itself.

If you question these fantasy-based beliefs, you’re a science-denier, and you’re putting your employment and reputation at risk. And, unfortunately, those risks are not imaginary. Many doctors and scientists whose reputations and contributions to public health have been beyond reproach for decades have been stripped of their medical licenses and lost their jobs for speaking out against the reigning COVID narratives.

So, where do we go from here? How do we end the madness and return to reality-based public health? Bell believes that public health professionals who have misled the public will inevitably pay a heavy price for their betrayal. He writes:9

“Whilst growing their industry’s finances, public health professionals are degrading themselves and betraying society. The betrayal, based on incessant lying, is something for which they will inevitably face consequences …

Eventually, even the most dedicated followers will begin to question the sense of putting on a mask at a restaurant door only to remove it 10 steps later, or vaccinating vast populations against a disease to which they are already immune whilst they die of other readily preventable diseases.

The way out of this is simply to refuse to lie, or cover for the lies of others … [The] truth will catch up, one day, with those who don’t … It is far better to leave early and live with dignity.”

Throughout the years, the Healthy Pets website has grown with the support of loyal pet guardians like you who want only the best for their furry or feathered best friends. And now, we’re taking our growth to the next level. I’m so excited to share with you the amazing news: Healthy Pets is expanding beyond the Mercola umbrella and into its own brand!

Introducing bark & whiskers — a brand-new comprehensive website featuring integrative pet health strategies and advice straight from yours truly!

Although we’re rebranding and getting a new website, our mission to help you take control of your pet’s health will never change. Through bark & whiskers, I’ll continue to provide you information you can use to improve your pet’s wellness and longevity, including advice on species-appropriate nutrition, proactive pet care tips, natural home remedies, cute pet videos and so much more.

Subscribers will continue to receive my free newsletter and enjoy the same benefits they did with Healthy Pets on bark & whiskers — no need to subscribe again. The only difference is, instead of receiving emails from Healthy Pets, you’ll soon be getting my newsletter from bark & whiskers.

You will start to receive the new bark & whiskers newsletter beginning this week and all new content moving forward will be posted exclusively there as well. This content will still be the same: the most-up-to date information on pet health.

One of my consistent messages is that biologically appropriate nutrition, coming from the freshest foods possible, forms the first building block of good health in animals. Unfortunately, the myths perpetuated by the pet food industry have managed to confuse many pet owners about what constitutes a biologically appropriate diet for dogs and cats, and deceive them into thinking that highly refined, starch-filled pellets are the best choice for lifelong nutrition.

Big players in the pet food industry have funded the vast majority of pet food research and conducted most of the nutrition training in veterinary schools. They’ve been quick to disregard the growing body of research and tens of thousands of “anecdotal reports” about the benefits of minimally processed, biologically appropriate diets from integrative veterinarians and pet parents in favor of studies that support their high-starch, ultraprocessed products.

Case in point, one study that pet food companies love to promote states that dogs have adapted to high-starch pet food,1 therefore it’s the ideal diet. But the question that pet parents should be asking before believing this is: What is really best for pets? A diet that requires their body to adapt in order for them to survive, or a diet that provides them natural nourishment and resonates with their innate metabolic machinery?

When you think about how carb-rich, ultraprocessed pet food can put your pet at risk of obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes and a host of other chronic health problems, it’s clear that a nutritionally balanced, biologically appropriate diet that contains high-quality animal protein, moisture, healthy fats and a small amount of prebiotic-rich fiber, with low to no starch content, is more beneficial.

And while the goal is to feed as much minimally processed fresh food as possible, sometimes (for financial or medical reasons) we have to make compromises; I’ll show you how to do the very best you can for your pet, no matter your circumstances.

Ultimately, it is up to pet guardians like you to ask questions, seek better answers for your animal companions, and become knowledgeable advocates for your pet’s overall well-being. As you read through my articles at bark & whiskers, it’s my goal that you’ll learn valuable information that can help you make the wisest dietary and lifestyle choices to help your pet thrive.

The most well-loved articles on Healthy Pets, which span a variety of topics that have helped pet guardians navigate the ups and downs of pet parenting, are moving to bark & whiskers, where you can read them anytime you want, and share pertinent articles with other animal lovers. Some of our most popular articles that you’ll see on bark & whiskers include:

We’re looking forward to growing the bark & whiskers community with you, so we’re inviting you to like and follow us on these brand new social media channels, where you can get our latest bark & whiskers content and interact with other proactive pet guardians:

Don’t forget to visit the bark & whiskers website and scroll through the numerous articles we currently have and new articles that we’ll be adding daily. I can’t wait to provide you with more pet health information to help you make the wisest decisions for your animal companion. Let’s continue working together for the health and happiness of your pets!

COVID-19 Destroys the Weakest and Poorest

  • COVID-19 has been called the great equalizer, but nothing could be further from the truth. The disease clearly affects certain groups far worse than others, and the countermeasures implemented to quell the outbreak have been a phenomenal boon for wealthy globalists while decimating the lives of the rest

  • Certain comorbidities significantly raise your risk of complications and death from COVID-19. Among the top ones are obesity, insulin resistance and vitamin D deficiency

  • While the media and political and economic institutions claim the pandemic narrative is based on scientific consensus, this clearly isn’t the case. There’s no evidence supporting universal mask use and there’s even less scientific support for lockdowns

  • While 45.5 million Americans filed for unemployment due to pandemic lockdowns, 29 new billionaires were created. The five richest men in the U.S. grew their wealth by a total of $101.7 billion (26%), between March 18, 2020, and June 17, 2020, alone

  • Now, as reckless government overreach has destroyed many small businesses and engineered catastrophic unemployment around the world, world leaders are joining the World Economic Forum in calling for a Great Reset of the global economy that will benefit wealthy powerbrokers while enslaving and impoverishing everyone else

COVID-19 has been called the great equalizer, but nothing could be further from the truth. The disease clearly affects certain groups far worse than others, and the countermeasures implemented to quell the outbreak have been a phenomenal boon for wealthy globalists while decimating the livelihood, and perhaps even the will to live, of the average person. As reported by IPS News:1

“According to the latest ILO reports,2 as job losses escalate due to lockdowns, nearly half of the global workforce is at risk of losing livelihoods, access to food and the ability to survive.

The World Economic Forum states that ‘With some 2.6 billion people around the world in some kind of lockdown, we are conducting arguably the largest psychological experiment ever.’3

As governments and corporations tighten political authoritarianism4 and technological surveillance, curtailing privacy and democratic protest, much of humanity is succumbing to anxiety, depression and a sense of powerlessness.”

An ever-growing number of doctors, academics and scientists are now questioning the origin of the virus, the validity of using PCR tests to diagnose “cases,” the usefulness of face masks, the questionable classification of COVID-19 deaths, the suppression of scientifically verified methods of prevention and treatment, and the safety and usefulness of COVID-19 vaccines.

There are clear problems in all of these areas, yet questions and logical thinking have been, and continue to be, met with harsh resistance and denial.

Those leading the charge in terms of pandemic responses — most notably the World Health Organization, media companies and Big Tech — have not been shy about their censoring of counter-narratives, almost without exception. Even military information warfare units are being deployed in the fight against “anti-vaccine propaganda.”5

When it comes to the disease itself, we now know certain comorbidities significantly raise your risk of complications and deaths. Among the top ones are obesity, insulin resistance and vitamin D deficiency.

While these conditions are exceptionally common overall, they’re particularly prevalent in Black and indigenous communities, and when combined with inadequate access to health care, these groups also end up being disproportionally affected by COVID-19. As noted by IPS News:6

“The disproportionately higher rates of COVID deaths among American Indians and Alaska Natives,7 for example, are due to higher rates of obesity, diabetes, asthma and heart disease than among more privileged U.S. communities.”

Research8 suggests even mild obesity can influence COVID-19 severity, raising the risk of respiratory failure by 2.5 times and the risk of needing intensive care by nearly five times. Inflammation triggered by obesity is also thought to be responsible for the threefold greater risk of pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs) seen in obese COVID-19 patients.9 10

Certain groups — particularly the elderly and those with darker skin — are also far more prone to the illness due to the fact that they’re also at highest risk for vitamin D deficiency.

While the media and political and economic institutions claim the pandemic narrative is based on scientific consensus, this clearly isn’t the case. There’s no evidence supporting universal mask use, for example, and there’s even less scientific support for lockdowns — a strategy based on a high school project that won third place.11

James Corbett of the Corbett Report discusses this shocking revelation in the video above. As it turns out, the young girl’s father is Robert Glass, a senior researcher at Sandia National Laboratories, who worked on pandemic emergency response plans for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

His proposal to shut down schools and businesses in the case of an influenza pandemic was published in the November 2006 issue of the journal of Emerging Infectious Diseases.12

Now, as many small businesses are failing thanks to months-long shutdowns and employment opportunities look bleak in many areas, government leaders around the world are suddenly joining the World Economic Forum in calling for a Great Reset of the economy.13

This hardly seems like a random coincidence. This plan, which has been brewing for decades, will further empower and enrich wealthy, unelected powerbrokers while enslaving and impoverishing everyone else.

The fact that the pandemic has been used to shift wealth from the poor and middle class to the ultra-wealthy is clear for anyone to see at this point. As reported by IPS News:14

“The combined wealth of U.S. billionaires ‘surpassed $1 trillion in gains since March 2020 and the beginning of the pandemic,’ according to a study by the Institute for Policy Studies.15

While 45.5 million Americans filed for unemployment, 29 new billionaires were created, the Institute for Policy Studies reported in June 2020,16 and the five richest men in the U.S. — Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett and Larry Ellison — grew their wealth by a total of $101.7 billion (26%), between March 18, 2020, and June 17, 2020, alone.17

“The disparity in treatment of big box stores and small retailers is striking — and illogical. Why is it safe to shop with hundreds of people in a Walmart but unsafe to shop in a store that can only hold a fraction of that?”

Pandemic profiteers include big tech companies like Zoom and Skype, along with some of the largest retailers. Walmart and Target report record sales this year.18 And no wonder, when they’ve frequently been the only places that haven’t been shut down. Online retailers like Amazon19 and Wayfair20 are also boasting record revenues.

The disparity in treatment of big box stores and small retailers is striking — and illogical. Why is it safe to shop with hundreds of people in a Walmart but unsafe to shop in a store that can only hold a fraction of that? Why has the largest retailers been allowed to remain open while mom and pop shops have been forcibly shut down? It makes no sense, yet the targeted destruction of small businesses continues. As noted by IPS News:21

“The COVID pandemic has not been the ‘Great Equalizer’ as suggested by the likes of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and members of the World Economic Forum. Rather, it has exacerbated existing inequalities along gender, race and economic class divides across the world.22

That the COVID-19 pandemic is a form of class war is also evident in the way rules are enforced. While citizens are told what to do, those who lay down the rules repeatedly break them. It’s “rules for thee, not for me.”

In the eight-minute video above, YouTuber Joey B. Toonz highlights the hypocrisy of government officials who restrict public gatherings but keep a different set of rules for themselves.

From telling people they have to wear masks between bites to closing down indoor gatherings at dining establishments and small businesses across the country, the hypocrisy of different states’ governors is blatant.

Threatening criminal citations and even arrest, these governors demand obedience “for the public good.” It’s all about “saving lives,” they say. Yet these same governors continue living life more or less normally, socializing and traveling as they always have, without repercussions.

White House news reporters don’t get off the hook, either, as the video shows how they, too, have one standard for the president and the public and a different set of rules when they think the cameras are off.

The hypocrisy of the ruling class makes the restrictions all the more difficult to bear, as it’s becoming increasingly clear that there really are two sets of rules, and they’re based on class.

There’s the haves and the have nots, and those with meager finances are also disproportionally robbed of their freedom to socialize and travel, which is just as devastating as not being allowed to make a living. The video highlights the case of an elderly woman who asked to be euthanized because she just couldn’t take the restrictions any longer.

At this point, it should be obvious for anyone paying attention that the pandemic is being prolonged and exaggerated for a reason, and it’s not because there’s concern for life. Quite the contrary.

It’s a ploy to quite literally enslave the global population within a digital surveillance system23 that is not of our own choosing — a system so unnatural and inhumane that no rational population would ever voluntarily go down that road.

“The ‘Great Reset’ seeks to … expand corporate control of natural resources and state surveillance of individuals,” IPS News writes.24 “In the post-pandemic ‘Great Reset,’ there would not be much life left outside the technological-corporate nexus dominated by monolithic agribusiness, pharmaceutical, communication, defense and other inter-connected corporations, and the governments and media serving them.

The proponents of the ‘Great Reset’25 envisage a Brave New World where, ‘You will own nothing. And you will be happy. Whatever you want, you will rent, and it will be delivered by drones.’

But it is more likely that this elite-led revolution will make the vast majority of humanity a powerless appendage of technology with little consciousness and meaning in their lives.”

It should also be clear that most if not all pandemic restrictions to freedom are meant to become permanent. Indeed, they’re bound to become even more restrictive and invasive once plans for health passports, an all-digital currency, standard basic income, debt forgiveness in return for relinquishing all future rights to private ownership, digital IDs and a social scoring system are fully implemented.

It’s important to understand that now’s the time to fight back: to resist any and all unconstitutional edicts. Once the “new world order” is in place, you will no longer be able to do a thing about it.

Your life — your health, educational and work opportunities, your finances and your very identity — will be so meshed with the automated technological infrastructure that any attempt to break free will result in you being locked out or erased from the system, leaving you with no ability to learn, work, travel or engage in commerce.

It sounds far-fetched, I know, but when you follow the technocratic plan to its inevitable end, that’s basically what you end up with. The warning signs are all around us, if we’re willing to see them for what they actually are. The only question now is whether enough people are willing to resist it to make a difference.

We must keep pushing for transparency and truth. We must insist on medical freedom and personal liberty. Do not allow yourself to be bullied into silence.

And, even more importantly, release the fear. It’s a fearful public that allows the technocratic elite to dictate the future and rip away our personal freedoms. It’s fear that allows tyranny to flourish. Really look at the data, so you can see for yourself that panic is unwarranted.

For practical strategies on how you can respond in light of all the tyrannical interventions that have been imposed on us, check out James Corbett’s interview with Howard Lichtman below. I also recommend reading “Constitutional Sheriffs Are the Difference Between Freedom and Tyranny.”

Last but not least, now is also the time to take control of your own health. Remember, insulin resistance, obesity and vitamin D deficiency top the list of comorbidities that significantly raise your risk complications and death from COVID-19. These are also underlying factors in a host of other chronic diseases, so by addressing them, you’ll improve your health overall.

Hollywood Lost $500B in Market Value Last Year; More Woke, More Broke

by Jon Dougherty,

While the entertainment industry managed to score some major successes throughout 2022, overall, Hollywood experienced a very bad year and much worse than many other industries. According to reports, the entertainment industry lost more than a half-trillion dollars in market value last year, thanks in large part to a string of overrated, under-watched films.

“Major studios, streamers, cable providers, and other media giants lost a combined $542 billion in market value in 2022, with left-wing studios the Walt Disney Co., Netflix, and Comcast accounting for the bulk of the bloodshed,” Breitbart News reported, citing the Financial Times.

“The Dow Jones Media Titans index, which tracks the performance of 30 of the world’s biggest media companies, shed 40 percent this year, with its total market value declining from $1.35 trillion to $808 billion,” Breitbart News noted further.

The total losses for the entertainment industry were greater than other sectors of the economy, including banking, which fell about 14.5 percent over the year, and telecommunications, which dropped about 11.2 percent in value.

 

“Hollywood’s horrible year was the result of a one-two punch of a downturn in the streaming market coupled with consumers continuing to cut the cord by the millions. In addition, the advertising market has cratered as households cut spending as the costs of essentials like food and energy continue to skyrocket due to President Joe Biden’s (D) disastrous economic policies,” the outlet continued, adding: “Woke companies paid the highest price” last year.

The Walt Disney Company suffered the biggest fallout, losing market value and market share, thanks to its plunging stock prices.

Breitbart noted:

Disney, whose stock is on course for its worst year since 1974, spent 2022 embracing radical LGBTQ activism and waging a calamitous political war with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) over the state’s anti-grooming Parental Rights in Education Law.

Netflix experienced an unprecedented two consecutive quarters of subscriber losses this year, which resulted in layoffs and cost-cutting across the board. For the year, the stock is down more than 50 percent.

Disney’s top leadership went all-in on the ‘woke’ movement.

And it’s already cost them dearly in reversed tax breaks and special privileges.

Now woke LGBTQ Disney is facing failure at the box office.

The mad rush by so many of the nation’s biggest corporations to go ‘woke’ is coming back to haunt them.

Turns out the American people aren’t actually in favor of the woke, cancel-culture crowd.

The days of the whole world loving and trusting Disney are over.

The company used to have 7 – 8-billion-dollar box office films each year.

Now, their most successful franchises will be without its box office stars, and instead of inspiring us – or even just entertaining us – they’ll propagandize to us with condescending diversity and homosexuality involving even underage children.

Disney’s new woke policies have cost them – even their stockholders have filed a lawsuit against the Mouse.

Last year, Disney stock was trading at $153.63. Now it’s down to $87.02.

Disney is no longer a family-friendly enterprise, they are evil, disgusting child groomers making woke, leftist propaganda instead of family entertainment.

Other big losers include Paramount Global, whose stock has dropped more than 40 percent, and Warner Bros. Discovery — the parent company of CNN — whose stock has tumbled more than 60 percent.

Perhaps one of the highest-profile mistakes made by Disney was to pick a fight with DeSantis, which likely contributed to former CEO Bob Chapek being replaced by once-retired and previous CEO Bob Iger late last year.

Recently, DeSantis pushed back on Iger, as well, after the entertainment chief reflected on the conflict between Sunshine State Republicans and the media behemoth.

DeSantis, who won reelection last month in a landslide, responded to a video clip of Iger during an appearance on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s program on Tuesday evening, in which Iger, who recently replaced the tumultuous tenure of former CEO Bob Chapek, claimed Disney was “dragged into” a fight with DeSantis and the GOP legislature over the “Parental Rights in Education” law.

“I was sorry to see us dragged into that battle. And I have no idea exactly what its ramifications are in terms of the business itself,” Iger said during a town-hall event with Disney staffers.

“What I can say is, the state of Florida has been important to us for a long time, and we have been very important to the state of Florida,” Iger noted. “That is something I’m extremely mindful of and will articulate if I get the chance.”

DeSantis was quick to respond that it wasn’t him or his GOP-controlled legislature that picked a fight with Disney, but actually, it was the other way around.

“We didn’t drag them in, Tucker,” the Florida governor told Carlson. “They went in on their own and not only opposed the bill. They threatened to get it repealed.”

“These are parents’ rights, important policies in our state that are very popular. And so they brought this on themselves,” he continued. “All we did was stand up for what’s right. And, yes, they’re a big, powerful company. But you know what? We stand up for our folks. And I don’t care what a Burbank-based California company says about our laws.”

The Return of Spirit

the-return-of-spirit

Clearing of the Chimera group continues. The Light Forces are using Mjolnir technology to remove the black holes from the implants and from the inverted grid on the surface of the planet.

When the critical mass of those black holes is removed, the positive spiritual energy from the Buddhic plane will again begin to precipitate on mental, astral, etheric and physical planes on the surface of the planet for the first time since 1996.

This positive spiritual energy will, when it becomes strong enough, trigger the New Renaissance, the real spiritual awakening of the Age of Aquarius and will be the foundation for the activation of Operation Dreamland:

http://2012portal.blogspot.com/2012/08/operationdreamland-operationdreamland.html

This positive spiritual energy will finally dissolve the black hole quantum anomaly around Earth and reactivate the Ascension process for this planet. It will connect the surface of this planet to Tunnels of Light, which are exact opposite of the Tunnels of Set. Tunnels of Light are connecting the whole universe into One, and they will ultimately Ascend the whole universe into one giant rainbow fuzzball of Oneness at the end of the next cosmic cycle.

 


 

Millions of years ago, the Chimera have built huge particle accelerators in the form of Dyson rings billions of miles in diameter in the Rigel star system in Orion.

They were using those Dyson rings to create a sufficient amount of top quark and strange quark condensate to create a sufficient amount of toplet and strangelet bombs to control the Rigel and Sol star systems:

They were also using those particle accelerators to create other forms of degenerate matter:

Degenerate matter is created under extreme pressure and/or temperature and is so dense and compressed that quantum effect influence its characteristics significantly.

Aside from material for toplet and strangelet bombs, they were mostly producing large amounts of quark gluon plasma:

and also some neutron degenerate matter:

Great portion of this quark gluon plasma and neutron degenerate matter was brought to Earth during the Great Invasion of 1996 and some of the still remaining containers of those two types of degenerate matter are protecting the last pit from the final assault of the Light Forces:

Here it is interesting to know that mainstream scientists are trying to find technosignatures of alien civilizations, including Dyson spheres:

Knowing their defeat is near, the Chimera are trying to strengthen the quarantine by launching absurd number of satellites into the Near Earth orbit:

The Light Forces are now trying to manifest a timeline in which a peace agreement is reached between Russia and Ukraine:

Russia ad Ukraine are involved in a war that neither side is likely to win, and many people are growing tired of this war. So a peace deal is finally becoming possible, like the peace of Westphalia:

or 11:11 armistice that ended WW1:
