(Natural News) Suppose you’ve ever wondered why the mainstream media appears to be all in with promoting climate change. In that case, part of the reason is that most people in the media are far-left sycophants, and they are all in with the authoritarianism that climate change policies usher in.
But there is a financial aspect to their allegiance as well, according to a new investigative report.
The Associated Press, one of the largest and most widely published newswire services on the planet, admitted last year that it had managed to secure $8 million to promote climate change-related stories and content. “This far-reaching initiative will transform how we cover the climate story,” the newswire’s executive editor crowed at the time.
There’s no doubt that has been the case, writes Daniel Greenfield for Frontpage Magazine:
The philanthropic quid-pro-quo saw five organizations fund the AP’s dedicated team of “more than two dozen journalists” to cover “climate issues” that the wire service would then plant in papers around the country to terrify Americans into supporting ‘green’ taxes and subsidies. The Associated Press did not bother to explain to its readers or the newspapers that run its stories why these organizations were impelled to throw millions at it except sheer benevolence.
Nor did it explain why they might be particularly interested in convincing Americans that the climate sky is falling and that our economy must be dismantled and ‘greened’: raising energy prices and putting millions out of work.
One of those five organizations, Quadrivium, was created by James Murdoch and his wife, who left the Murdoch (of Fox and Fox News origins) family over disagreements with conservative news coverage. The organization says it hopes to reach “a majority of the public” in order to generate “urgent action” on the “bipartisan passage of a US climate strategy.”
The idea being pushed is called the “carbon rebate plan,” and it involves taxing Americans via their carbon emissions with the promise of repaying some of the money back to them. It comes from an organization called the Climate Leadership Council, whose board includes James’ wife, Kathryn Murdoch. The group’s partners include major banks like JP Morgan, Santander, and Goldman Sachs, as well as energy companies BP, Shell, and Conoco, the latter of whom believe, for some reason, that they’ll be spared from bankruptcy if they go along with the lunacy.
Media organizations like the AP begin to play their role with climate change propaganda pieces like “Carbon tax plan worthy of bipartisan support.” The newswire’s editorial board described the CLC as a “group of venerable Republicans” while laughably claiming that taxing Americans for the benefit of special climate interests is “a quintessentially conservative plan” — though conservatives and Republicans, in general, push for tax cuts and minimum government in everyone’s lives.
“Serious journalism would ask questions or at least mention some of this in passing. The AP instead acts as a mouthpiece without even enough lingering self-respect to disclose any of that,” Greenfield writes.
As for the Murdochs, they have invested in several projects that include pushing leftist climate policies, all of which empower government and companies over hapless consumers who are expected to simply go along with the scheme. Most of the ‘convincing’ revolves around scaring people to death with false claims of how cattle flatulence and SUVs have put the earth on a short-term timetable to destruction. And, of course, every warning becomes more dire.
But the AP doesn’t mention any of this, as Greenfield notes.
“The AP is taking money from organizations heavily leveraged in green investments to promote the need for green investments. And it fails to disclose the financial interests that its funders have in promoting global warming hysteria,” he writes, adding: “The next time you see an AP story about ‘climate change,’ you know who’s paying for it.”
(Natural News) In a series of tweets, Benjamin Carlson, former editor of The Atlantic, outlined seven key takeaways from the Twitter Files revelations that show just how important they are to our understanding of the world in 2023.
For one, the Twitter Files have changed history. What many thought were established facts about covid, for instance, are now the subject of much debate because of what has been revealed.
We now know that covid was an inside job, and that those who perpetrated it used Twitter and other social media platforms to control the official story. We also know that Hunter Biden’s laptop was full of damning information that likewise was blocked from spreading online.
Donald Trump also said too much, which is why he, too, was silenced and stopped from tweeting. All of this illustrates that the free flow of information and open debate were halted on Twitter, which had “real consequences,” according to Carlson.
It was also revealed that much of what was dubbed a “conspiracy theory” turned out to be conspiracy fact. The FBI was, it turns out, colluding with Twitter to shut down the conversation on numerous sensitive issues, including covid and the Biden Crime Family.
“Blacklists & shadow bans were real,” Carlson says. “U.S. intel lobbied to censor accounts … Covid-19 convo heavily manipulated … Twitter rules changed & enforced by whim”. (Related: Twitter also censors critics of Big Pharma.)
Big Tech is basically just Big Government in disguise
Much of the censorship taking place on Twitter is being orchestrated by three-letter government agencies, the Twitter Files further reveal. And the excuse is that such censorship is necessary in order to promote and preserve “safety” in society.
Twitter actually redefined “safety, harm, and violence” in its policies to apply to ideas, meaning certain topics were deemed off limits because they might cause “harm.”
Opinions and information deemed “unsafe” was systematically silenced on Twitter, as were jokes, memes, and even just honest questions about, for example, the true origin of covid.
The FBI was so committed to keeping a lid on these and other topics that it created an 80-person staff to infiltrate Twitter’s ranks and keep a constant eye on speech. “Unsafe” accounts were flagged and punished while those pushing the accepted narrative were promoted to the forefront.
As all this was happening, social media executives lied both to the public and under oath to Congress. They claimed that Twitter was open to everyone, and that everyone who uses it is treated equally – which is not the case.
At the top of the pyramid are three or maybe four individuals who are calling all the shots, the Twitter Files also reveal. These individuals were later replaced by Elon Musk when he took over the platform.
Prior to this, Twitter employees had staged an insurrection, of sorts, that led to Trump being banned; widespread censorship of covid conversations; and a massive increase in user bans throughout 2021 and 2022.
Since dropping the Twitter files, Musk has become enemy number one in the eyes of those whose misdeeds are now in full view for the world to see. Carlson urges Musk to “watch out” because they will likely be after him for what he has done.
“Twitter protects and facilitates propaganda networks,” Carlson tweeted, noting that various military psychological operations (psyops) ran rampant on the platform.
“The confirmation of involvement of U.S. intelligence apparatus is the most striking,” Carlson further added about what he believes is the most damning aspect of the Twitter Files.

(Natural News) Just days after Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field mid-game, another athlete, Old Dominion University (ODU) basketball player Imo Essien, suffered a similar fall during a game – and under the same mysterious circumstances as Hamlin.
Reports indicate that Essien, after falling to the ground for no apparent reason, “had to be tended to by training staff from both ODU and Georgia Southern.” According to a report from WAVY, Essien “did not appear to lose consciousness” during the episode and was eventually helped to walk off the court – Hamlin, meanwhile, had to be rushed by emergency personnel to a local hospital following his collapse.
“Members of the Old Dominion men’s basketball team watched in shock,” WAVY reported, with one account adding that “many held back tears” as they watched the episode in dismay.
Old Dominion later released a statement about the incident that reads:
“Imo Essien was evaluated by the ODU Athletic Training staff along with the GA Southern medical staff. He was responsive throughout and was able to sit with his team for the duration of the game and travel back with the team. He is in good spirits and will work with the ODU Sports Medicine staff when they return to Norfolk.”

Fans want to know: What’s Essien’s vaccination status?
As you will notice, Essien is clearly clutching his chest while on the ground, which suggests that his fall, like Hamlin’s, was cardiac related. Old Dominion has yet to address that particular aspect of the incident, instead brushing off the incident as a minor blip in Essien’s performance.
On Twitter, some users were quick to respond to the ODU account with questions about Essien’s vaccination status. One of them wrote that it “was all the rage to ask in 2021,” adding: “Is that fad now over?”
Others wrote that covid shots never should have been mandated on sports players because clearly something is wrong as increasingly more of them suffer what appear to be cardiac-related events right in the middle of games.
Another person asked what the “excuse” will be for Essien’s fall:
“Dehydration, again?” this person wrote. “During the 1st quarter?”
Someone else chastised Old Dominion for “pushing these young men to be pharmaceutical test subjects,” again linking covid injections to Essien’s fall mid-game.
“Pharmaceutical companies are immune from lawsuits but you are not,” this person further warned.
Almost nobody seems to believe that Essien’s fall was some kind of random coincidence, seeing as how it is just one in a long line of other recent falls and collapses mid-game that never used to happen prior to the unleashing of covid “vaccines.”
“From January 2021 to present, 1,101 athletes died from cardiac arrest,” explained another commenter, pointing to this article from Good Sciencing that maintains an up-to-date tally of athlete cardiac events.
“Over a prior 38 years (1966-2004), 1,101 athletes under the age of 35 died due to various heart conditions … The same number of athletes died in the last TWO years as compared to a prior 38 years. And the numbers grow daily.”
Others noted that the establishment could end up blaming “long covid” for Essien’s collapse, assuming none of the other provided excuses stick.

At the end of December 2022, John Campbell, Ph.D., posted a video calling on the British health authorities to halt the use of mRNA COVID injections, as the data suggest there are far too many safety issues
Campbell argues that while the risk of complications and death due to COVID has significantly lessened since the early days of 2020, the risks associated with the COVID jabs remain the same. Hence, the risk-benefit ratio of the mass injection campaign has flipped, and the risk associated with the shot now outweighs the risk of infection
The COVID jabbed are now dying in greater numbers than the unjabbed — so much so that it has driven down the overall life expectancy in the U.S. by nearly three years
Across the world, excess mortality has dramatically risen since the rollout of the jabs. If they were beneficial, you’d expect excess mortality to drop. We’re also not seeing mass death from COVID. The only clear factor that might account for these discrepancies is mass injection with an experimental gene transfer technology
Most COVID-19 related deaths are also occurring among the fully jabbed and boosted
Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, John Campbell, Ph.D., a retired nurse educator, has gained a following for his even-handed evaluations of COVID science and statistics. While he’s not known for taking a stand against the COVID shots, that recently changed.
At the end of December 2022, Campbell posted a video (above) calling on the British health authorities to halt the use of mRNA COVID injections, as the data suggest there are far too many safety issues to continue.
Moreover, most COVID-19 hospitalizations in 2022 were incidental, meaning they were not hospitalized “for” COVID but, rather, tested positive once admitted. Waves of outbreaks with newer, less hazardous variants have also resulted in high levels of natural immunity.
Campbell argues that while the risk of complications and death due to COVID has significantly lessened since the early days of 2020, the risks associated with the COVID jabs remain the same as they were at the outset.
Hence, the risk-benefit ratio of the mass injection campaign has flipped, and the risk associated with the shot now outweighs the risk of infection. Campbell is now urging the British government to pause the continued booster campaign until a population-wide risk-benefit analysis has been carried out, and the data published with full transparency so that independent researchers can verify the findings.
What Campbell does not address in this video, but has reviewed in others, is that the COVID jabbed are actually dying in greater numbers than the unjabbed — so much so that it has driven down the overall life expectancy in the U.S. by nearly three years.
In 2019, the average life span of Americans of all ethnicities was 78.8 years.
By the end of 2020, it had dropped to 77.0 years
and by the end of 2021, it was 76.4.
We know this drop isn’t due to people dying of COVID-19, because the age groups with the highest increases in mortality were working age adults, 25 through 54, followed by children between the ages of 1 and 4.
And, they are not tiny increases.
Rates of death increased 16.1% for 35- to 44-year-olds, 13.4% for 25- to 34-year-olds, 12.1% for 45- to 54-year-olds, and 10.1% for 1- to 4-year-olds. Meanwhile, COVID mortality was, from the start, highest among the elderly.
The average age of death due to COVID-19 was 82,
which is actually older than the average life span, and mortality rates only increased by 3.8% among 65- to 74-year-olds and 2.4% among those aged 75 to 84. Life insurance data also confirm that it’s working age adults who are dying in record numbers.
COVID-19 is also an unlikely cause for the rapid decline in life expectancy for the simple fact that it’s not a major contributor to rising excess mortality, which only took off after the introduction of the COVID shots in early 2021.
Excess mortality is a statistic that is related to but separate from life expectancy. It refers to the difference between the observed numbers of deaths (from all causes) during a given time, compared to the expected number of deaths based on historical norms, such as the previous five-year average. (Formula: reported deaths – expected deaths = excess deaths.)
Across the world, excess mortality has dramatically risen since the rollout of the jabs, and barely a day now goes by without a healthy adult suddenly dropping dead with no apparent cause.
If the COVID jabs were beneficial, you’d expect excess mortality to drop, yet that’s not what we’re seeing. We’re also not seeing mass death from COVID. The only clear factor that might account for these discrepancies is mass injection with an experimental gene transfer technology.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data also show that most COVID-19 related deaths are now occurring among the jabbed and boosted, and this despite the fact that numbers are artificially suppressed by only counting people as “vaccinated” or “boosted” if they’re at least two weeks out from their last shot. As reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF):
“In fall 2021, about 3 in 10 adults dying of COVID-19 were vaccinated or boosted. But by January 2022
… about 4 in 10 deaths were vaccinated or boosted. By April 2022 … data show that about 6 in 10 adults dying of COVID-19 were vaccinated or boosted, and that’s remained true through at least August 2022 (the most recent month of data).”
The data from this chart come from the CDC, which collects data on the number of deaths by vaccination status from 30 health departments (including states and cities) across the country.
In order to be counted as vaccinated, a person must be at least two weeks out from completing their primary series … Similarly, to be counted as having a booster, a person must be at least two weeks out from their booster or additional dose before testing positive. People who were partially vaccinated are not included in this data.”
Another reason to halt the COVID booster campaign that Campbell does not address is the very likely possibility that the shots are fueling mutations, giving rise to ever new and more resistant variants. As reported in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece by Allysia Finley,
“The virus appears to be evolving in ways that evade immunity,” which is bad for the jabbed and unjabbed alike.
“Public-health experts are sounding the alarm about a new Omicron variant dubbed XBB that is rapidly spreading across the Northeast U.S.,” Finley writes.
suggest it is as different from the original COVID strain from Wuhan as the 2003 SARS virus … It isn’t clear that XBB is any more lethal than other variants, but its mutations enable it to evade antibodies from prior infection and vaccines as well as existing monoclonal antibody treatments.
Growing evidence also suggests that repeated vaccinations may make people more susceptible to XBB and could be fueling the virus’s rapid evolution …
Under selective evolutionary pressures, the virus appears to have developed mutations that enable it to transmit more easily and escape antibodies elicited by vaccines and prior infection.
The same study posits that immune imprinting may be contributing to the viral evolution. Vaccines do a good job of training the immune system to remember and knock out the original Wuhan variant. But when new and markedly different strains come along, the immune system responds less effectively.
Bivalent vaccines that target the Wuhan and BA.5 variants … prompt the immune system to produce antibodies that target viral regions the two strains have in common … XBB has evolved to elude antibodies induced by the vaccines and breakthrough infections.
Hence, the Nature study suggests, ‘current herd immunity and BA.5 vaccine boosters may not efficiently prevent the infection of Omicron convergent variants.'”
Indeed, a drawback of the original COVID shot that was widely ignored was that it only triggered the creation of antibodies against a single piece of the virus (the spike), whereas natural immunity creates antibodies against all of its parts.
Experts warned that embarking on a mass injection campaign would put enormous pressure on the spike that would result in mutations to evade immunity, and this is precisely what happened.
The idea that vaccines can cause viral mutations is not new. As explained in “Vaccines Are Pushing Pathogens to Evolve,” published in Quanta Magazine
in 2018, “Just as antibiotics breed resistance in bacteria, vaccines can incite changes that enable diseases to escape their control.”
The article details the history of the anti-Marek’s disease vaccine for chickens, first introduced in 1970. Today, we’re on the third version of this vaccine, as within a decade, it stops working. The reason for this is because the virus continuously mutates to evade the vaccine. What’s worse, the virus is also becoming increasingly deadly and more difficult to treat.
A 2015 paper
in PLOS Biology tested the theory that vaccines are driving the mutation of the herpesvirus causing Marek’s disease in chickens. To do that, they vaccinated 100 chickens and kept 100 unvaccinated. All of the birds were then infected with varying strains of the virus. Some strains were more virulent and dangerous than others.
“Viruses mutate all the time, and if you have a leaky vaccine, meaning one that doesn’t block infection completely, then the virus will mutate to evade the immune response within that person.”
Over the course of the birds’ lives, the unvaccinated ones shed more of the least virulent strains into the environment, while the vaccinated ones shed more of the most virulent strains. As noted in the Quanta article:
“The findings suggest that the Marek’s vaccine encourages more dangerous viruses to proliferate. This increased virulence might then give the viruses the means to overcome birds’ vaccine-primed immune responses and sicken vaccinated flocks.”
The take-home message here is that viruses mutate all the time, and if you have a leaky vaccine, meaning one that doesn’t block infection completely, then the virus will mutate to evade the immune response within that person.
As it happens, that is one of the distinct features of the COVID shots. They’re not designed to block infection. They allow infection to occur and at best lessen the symptoms, and as a result, the virus can mutate more or less unhindered. So, while the unjabbed were initially accused of being the ones responsible for mutations, it’s actually the jabbed who are the primary vectors.
While newer variants can circumvent both “vaccine” immunity and natural immunity, natural immunity still provides far better protection, because the more shots a person gets, the more predisposed they become to COVID-19 infection.
This was most recently demonstrated in a Cleveland Clinic study,
which concluded that the risk of COVID-19 infection “increased … with the number of vaccine doses previously received.” As reported by Finley:
“Notably, workers who had received more doses were at higher risk of getting sick. Those who received three more doses were 3.4 times as likely to get infected as the unvaccinated, while those who received two were only 2.6 times as likely.
‘This is not the only study to find a possible association with more prior vaccine doses and higher risk of COVID-19,’ the authors noted. ‘We still have a lot to learn about protection from COVID-19 vaccination, and in addition to a vaccine’s effectiveness it is important to examine whether multiple vaccine doses given over time may not be having the beneficial effect that is generally assumed.'”
The COVID jabbed are also contracting other infections, as the shots weaken their innate immune system. In December 2022, MIT researcher Stephanie Seneff and Drs. Peter McCullough, Greg Nigh and Anthony Kyriakopoulos published a paper
in which they described how the COVID shots inhibit the type-1 interferon pathway, which is the first-stage response to all viral infections.
As a result of this interferon inhibition, your innate immune system is suppressed, opening the door for all kinds of infections. Type-1 interferon also keeps latent viruses in check, so if your interferon pathway is suppressed, latent viruses, such as shingles,
can start to emerge. Importantly, cancer can also proliferate unchecked when your immune system is impaired.
The Cleveland Clinic study
cited earlier also found that the bivalent COVID-19 booster was only 30% effective in preventing infection “during the time when the virus strains dominant in the community were represented in the vaccine.”
In other words, the boosters provide minimal protection even when well-matched to the circulating strain, and as its protection wanes, it leaves you at higher risk of infection than before.
If you already got one or more jabs and now have concerns about your health, what can you do? Well, first and foremost, never take another COVID booster, another mRNA gene therapy shot or regular vaccine. You need to end the assault on your system.
If you developed symptoms you didn’t have before your shot, I would encourage you to seek out expert help. Unfortunately, most conventional doctors are clueless when it comes to COVID jab injuries (and vaccine injuries in general), so you’ll need to do some homework.
At present, the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) seems to have one of the best treatment protocols for post-jab injuries. It’s called I-RECOVER and can be downloaded from covid19criticalcare.com.
is also helping patients with post-jab injuries. I interviewed her about her treatment strategies in May 2022.
The World Health Council has also published lists of remedies that can help inhibit, neutralize and eliminate spike protein, which most experts agree is the primary culprit. I covered these in my 2021 article, “World Council for Health Reveals Spike Protein Detox.”
Other treatments and remedies that may be helpful for COVID jab injuries include:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, especially in cases involving stroke, heart attack, autoimmune diseases and/or neurodegenerative disorders. To learn more, see “Hyperbaric Therapy — A Vastly Underused Treatment Modality.”
Lower your Omega-6 intake. Linoleic acid is consumed in amounts 10 times higher than the ideal in well over 95% of the population and contributes to massive oxidative stress that impairs your immune response. Seed oils and processed foods need to be diligently avoided. See “How Linoleic Acid Wrecks Your Health” for more information.
Pharmaceutical grade methylene blue, which improves mitochondrial respiration and aid in mitochondrial repair. A dose of 15 to 80 milligrams a day could go a long way toward resolving some of the fatigue many suffer post-jab.
It may also be helpful in acute strokes. The primary contraindication is if you have a G6PD deficiency (a hereditary genetic condition), in which case you should not use methylene blue at all. To learn more, see “The Surprising Health Benefits of Methylene Blue.”
Near-infrared light, as it triggers production of melatonin in your mitochondria
where you need it most. By mopping up reactive oxygen species, it too helps improve mitochondrial function and repair. Natural sunlight is 54.3% infrared radiation, so this treatment is available for free. For more information, see “What You Need to Know About Melatonin.”
Lumbrokinase and serrapeptidase are both fibrinolytic enzymes that, when taken on an empty stomach one hour before a meal, or two hours after, will help reduce your risk of blood clots.
