Crisis Actors in a Counterfeit Society

Don Jeffries | May 2, 2023

I love the movie The Truman Show. Sometimes I feel like Truman, and look all around me, waiting for someone, perhaps a dog named Toto, to emerge from behind some undetected curtains. Virtually everyone with a public platform acts and reacts so predictably, that it truly seems they are reading from a script.

There is such a dearth of independent thinking, such an absence of out of the box perspectives, that no other explanation seems possible. Surely, with all the countless people who’ve risen to prominence in my lifetime, there would have been a few that broached forbidden topics, and showed indications that they actually wanted to help people. To be a do-gooder. Instead, they are all boring puppets, touting rhetoric every intelligent person should blanch at. You can almost see the strings behind them, pulled by their unseen puppet masters.


James Corbett on Technocratic Control and the Dangers of AI

  • Rather than squabbling about controlled opposition, we would be better served by spending our time productively engaged in research, verifying and triangulating information to discern what is true and what is false

  • “Divide and conquer” is the primary way the control network maintains control, and all that’s needed to divide a previously unified front is insinuation and the seeding of doubt

  • As AI-equipped chatbots are getting more sophisticated and start to monopolize online searches and virtual assistants, state-endorsed propaganda may become the only information available

  • Narrative is the ultimate weapon; with a convincing-enough narrative, you can motivate entire populations to go to war or anything else that you want them to do

  • One of the most important strategies you can implement to prepare yourself for the likelihood of what they plan on throwing at us next lies with community, meeting like-minded people that share your views and complement your skills. It will also be wise to relocate from high density urban areas

In this video, I interview investigative journalist James Corbett about false narratives, the global takeover by technocracy, controlled opposition and the dangers of artificial intelligence, as well as the solutions to these and other challenges.

Corbett’s journalism career began in the aftermath of 9/11, when he became “overwhelmed to discover that we are constantly lied to through the mainstream media.” 9/11 was his “red pill” moment, and he hasn’t stopped digging for the truth since.

“The discrepancy between the things that I was finding online versus what was being reported on the evening news just started getting wider and wider,” he says, “to the point where I felt that … I had to insert myself in that conversation. So that’s the reason we’re talking today.”

In 2007, Corbett launched his website, One of his hallmarks, both in his documentaries and regular reports, is impeccable citations of sources.

“I always put up the transcript with the hyperlinks to the source documents for every single quotation, every video clip, everything that I’m playing,” he says. “I want to direct people back to the source material so that they can research it for themselves.

I know, as a researcher myself who does this for a living, that’s incredibly valuable. I very much appreciate it when other people do it, so I’m trying to set that example in the alternative media.”

Corbett is also featured on “Good Morning CHD” with Dr. Meryl Nass once a month, an online news show by Children’s Health Defense.

“It’s a valuable way, for both of us, to continue keeping our eye on the ball of the World Health Organization and its latest machinations … of the global pandemic treaty and the international health regulations (IHR) amendments that they’re working on right now, which really could be the hardwiring of the biosurveillance infrastructure,” Corbett says.

When asked whether he believes the pandemic treaty and/or the IHR amendments can be stopped, Corbett replies:

“Well, they are planning on unleashing the global pandemic treaty on the world at the World Health Assembly (WHA) next year, May of 2024. And preparatory to that, they’re going to be holding a World Health Assembly this month, at which they’ll be talking about the draft of the treaty and the draft of the IHR amendments and other such developments.

So, we’re looking at about a one-year timeline before whatever it is they’re cooking up will be foisted upon the world, unless there is some dramatic movement to stop that.

In the short run, it seems unlikely that the incredible institutional momentum is going to be derailed, but having said that, we could look at things that have happened in the past that have completely derailed agendas that seemed inevitable, including the 2009 edition of the UNFCCC, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

In 2009, the UNFCCC was being promoted and hyped — even by the then-president of the EU — as the potential for world government through a new climate accord that would completely rewrite the international rule books.

That was completely derailed by a couple of interesting incidents, one of which was Climategate … Squabbles between some of the developing nations versus the developed world … [also] helped to derail that 2009 conference.

There’s potentially a similar thing happening [now] with the WHO trying to foist regulations and restrictions on developing countries that can’t afford them. As we saw over the course of the past few years, it was the African countries that held out against the biosecurity state agenda, to a large degree.

And I think people who are interested in invoking a global biosecurity surveillance net probably are most concerned about how developing countries will or will not participate in this. So, there may be a similar sort of geo-economic squabbling or something else that might derail this, so I don’t think we should simply consign ourselves to the inevitability of it before it happens.”

Determining the trustworthiness of people within the alternative news space is a challenge everyone is faced with these days. Accusations of people being controlled opposition are common. The same goes for high-profile individuals in general. For example, some people, including Corbett and investigative journalist Whitney Webb, believe Elon Musk is likely controlled opposition. What led them to that conclusion?

“It’s a question that a lot of people have, so let’s dig into it,” Corbett says. On the one side you have people who believe Musk is exposing and undermining the military industrial intelligence complex. On the other are those who think he’s just playing a “good guy” role while surreptitiously furthering Deep State goals. As noted by Corbett, it’s hard to overlook the massive support Musk has received from the military industrial intelligence complex over the course of his career.

“We don’t have to speculate about that,” Corbett says. “That is a matter of public record. We can point to the half a billion dollars or so that the Department of Defense has awarded SpaceX in a series of contracts over the past few years to send satellites up into orbit of classified nature on unregistered, unreported missions that presumably have something to do with the DOD’s declared intention to make space into a war-fighting domain.

There’s the $3 billion in NASA contracts that SpaceX was awarded in 2021 to develop the human lander for the Artemis Mission, and the never-going-to-happen constantly delayed moon trip that the public is being promised. There’s the $750 million that was awarded to Solar City in 2016 by the state of New York to build a solar cell production facility.

This, again, is another aspect of the business opportunities that Musk is involved in that I think shrieks of grift — a boondoggle at the very least, constantly promising a technology that not only doesn’t deliver but actually is actively harmful to the environment. I think that’s something that needs to be stressed.

Then, there’s the $1.3 billion that Tesla got from the State of Nevada in 2014 to build the Gigafactory, etc., etc., etc. We could go through the list of such help, but perhaps more to the point was the fact that before Elon Musk got to launch SpaceX, he was part of a trip to Russia … to purchase old Soviet ICBMs [intercontinental ballistic missiles]. That trip ultimately resulted in the starting of SpaceX.

Who was accompanying Elon Musk on that trip? Someone named Mike Griffin, who just happened to be the chief operating officer of In-Q-Tel, which is the CIA’s investment capital arm …

Griffin went on to become the administrator of NASA, who then chose SpaceX as the one company out of the 20 that was applying for it at the time, for this $400 million contract to start development of the new ISS resupply rocket in 2005, which basically launched SpaceX … and again awarded SpaceX $3.5 Billion in 2008 with a contract that Musk himself credits with saving the company.

So, there you go, the literal deep state connections couldn’t get much clearer. At every stage of Musk’s business career, he has been saved as need be with the deus ex machina of deep state agents like Mike Griffin swooping in with billions of dollars of contracts at just the right time.”

That’s why Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover and the release of the Twitter Files may seem to be a move against the military-industrial complex, but given Musk’s documentable ties to that very same military-industrial complex, we must be wary of placing faith in these developments.

After all, Twitter is a centralized platform that lends itself to censorship, algorithmic manipulation and information suppression, and Musk has openly stated that he wants to create a “WeChat”-like app capable of handling every aspect of its users’ digital life.

Corbett suggests that the best way to evaluate Musk’s ideas and contributions is to assess their outcomes.

“Is what Elon Musk advocating good or bad? Do we agree with it or do we disagree with it? Is it right or wrong? And why do we think so? That has to be the heart that we keep coming back to. So, we have to evaluate Musk’s ideas on that basis,” he says.

“For example, there are ideas that Musk promotes that I am 100% onboard with. He has talked about the overpopulation myth and the under-population crisis that humanity is facing. I very much agree with him on that assessment. When he talks about the ill effects of lockdowns … absolutely, I think he’s right about that.

However, when he talks about the imposition of a carbon tax in line with Bill Gates and Mark Carney and the like, I think he’s pushing a bad idea that is part of a plan for centralization of control in globalist hands.

When he gets on the stage of the World Government Summit and argues for universal basic income, again in line with any number of globalist operatives, I think he is promoting an idea that will be used for centralization of economic control in fewer hands.

When he talks about the … Neuralink brain chip … [he’s] exactly in line with what [World Economic Forum founder] Klaus Schwab has been arguing … I think that is a bad idea that is going to be used for control of the masses by a technocratic elite.”

As for Musk’s acquisition of Twitter and subsequent release of the Twitter Files, Corbett doesn’t think it’s a great surprise to find that the military industrial intelligence complex has been using it to monitor and manipulate people. He believes Musk’s job may well be to make the platform trustworthy again so that government agencies can continue using it for surveillance and control.

There’s other evidence pointing in this direction as well. Musk has said he wants Twitter to become the WeChat app of America. And what is WeChat? It’s a Chinese government-controlled app that monitors every aspect citizens’ lives, including their financial transactions, social transactions, communications, whereabouts and more.

It’s basically the foundation for the communist social credit system. So, while Musk claims to be a defender of free speech, he’s also talking about turning Twitter into THE central hub for the technocratic surveillance and control network.

As noted by Corbett, what we need to do is “take responsibility for our own lives rather than looking for saviors like Elon Musk to swoop in and save the day.” We can’t lay that burden on any given individual or group of individuals. We must all do our part.

“I think the conversation can get stuck on stupid because even though I tend to believe that Musk is some form of collaborator with the deep state that he pretends to oppose, I don’t have proof of that and I do not know that for a fact, in the same way that his defenders do not know for a fact that he is not part of that controlled opposition,” Corbett says.

“We can spend all our time and energy talking about this person and what we think their part is in all of this, or we could spend that time productively engaged in research, actually verifying, triangulating information, discerning what is true and what is not true.

When we take information down to that level, then it does not matter who is the person out there conveying that information to us. The important part is the information.”

It’s also important to understand that “divide and conquer” is the primary way the control network maintains control, and all that’s needed to divide a previously unified front is insinuation and the seeding of doubt. In the short-term, the globalist takeover seems to have an unstoppable momentum behind it, but seemingly inevitable moves toward tyranny have been derailed at the last minute in the past and we must not give up hope or stop resisting. As explained by Corbett:

“The term cognitive infiltration goes back to Cass Sunstein, the person who became Obama’s information czar … He co-wrote a paper about cognitive infiltration in which he openly stated:

‘The government maybe should send people into conspiracy spaces, conspiracy groups, with cognitive infiltrators who will go in there and conceal their identity as being affiliated with the government, but will try to insert facts that will break the narrative of the conspiracy theorists.’

And what was the result of that paper? Rather than anyone having been exposed as being that cognitive infiltrator on the payroll of the U.S. government, what it effectively did was give people ammunition to speculate endlessly.

‘This person is a cognitive infiltrator, that person is a cognitive infiltrator,’ to the point where, ultimately, I think Sunstein wins without even necessarily having to implement that system at all, because … the group fractures once the idea of pointing fingers at everyone becomes the norm …

That is, in fact, precisely how the FBI’s COINTELPRO program worked back in the 1950s and ’60s … One of the tactics they used was to put people into meetings in various spaces, the Black Panthers and others, in order to start spreading rumors and calling other people government agents.

The government agents were generally the ones that we’re calling other people government agents in order to disrupt the groups, so I think we have to keep that in mind and keep our eye on the real prize here, which is discerning fact from fiction, truth from falsity, productive ways forward from unproductive ways forward.”

I’ve often marveled at the effectiveness of modern propaganda. Part of what makes it so effective is the availability of technology, from social media and search engines to large language model artificial intelligence. OpenAI’s ChatGPT has taken the world by storm and companies across a range of industries are already talking about replacing large numbers of white collar workers with AI.

This, even though there are serious problems with this technology. For example, we’re finding chatbots have a tendency to lie and fantasize. Researchers are calling these instances “hallucinations.” Basically, the AI is concocting a fantasy based on the information available and reciting it as fact. And that’s in addition to the bias that can be built in by programmers. So, while it’s an incredibly exciting technology, we cannot be naïve about its risks.

One obvious risk is that state-endorsed propaganda can become the only information available to people, as this technology starts monopolizing online searches and virtual assistants.

There won’t be a multitude of answers anymore. There will only be one, and he who controls the AI will have the power to control the beliefs of the entire world. Of course, yet another risk is that no one will be able to control it and the AI will control itself. I don’t know which might be worse. Corbett comments:

“You introduced this topic with the concept of propaganda and potential uses of large language models for propagandistic purposes. We should go back to the man who wrote the book on propaganda called ‘Propaganda,’ Edward Bernays, who [said]:

‘The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government, which is the true ruling power of our country.’

That was Edward Bernays in 1928. His words are as true today as they were then, perhaps even more so. And the true ruling power of the country, of the world at this point perhaps, are those who can most effectively, consciously and intelligently manipulate the organized habits and opinions of the masses.

And I don’t think enough people have really stopped to cogitate on the fact that these large language models already starting to produce material that really cannot be distinguished from human-written material …

You don’t have to be a crystal ball prognosticator to see how this will extend out in the foreseeable future … [to] the point where you can have entire conversations, entire fields of interest and study that will be completely populated by artificial-created conversation …

A large language model that is able to accurately and without much prompting be able to populate botnets to flood social media and other places will essentially be able to dominate that conversation, [and] will consciously and intelligently manipulate the habits and opinions of the masses. At that point, you are talking about the ultimate weapon.

The ultimate weapon is narrative, because with a convincing-enough narrative, you can get entire populations motivated to war or to anything else that you seek to get them to do, like say lock down the entire productive global economy on the back of a scare that was absolutely not warranted.

So, I think once we start getting these completely synthetically-generated narratives, that will start creating these entire events that are not happening in the real world. [These events] will be deep-faked through video and audio and everything else, to convince you of an entire reality that doesn’t exist.

We are really moving into some truly world historical changing times and I don’t know if enough people are really cognizant of … how this technology could be used for good or for ill …

I think there is a real threat, and it is probably underappreciated by a large section of the public that are not keeping abreast of the daily torrent of information on this subject … Some of the testing notes for ChatGPT-4 that were released showed there was a team that was tasking the chatbot with a certain task that would require it to do things that it was not programmed to do, or even authorized to do, including solving a CAPTCHA …

[The chatbot] actually went on Fiverr or one of those types of platforms and recruited a human being to do it for it, to the point where the human said, ‘Why are you recruiting me to do a CAPTCHA? How do I know you’re not a bot? Ha-ha-ha.’ To which it responded, ‘I’m blind, I’m visually impaired, I can’t do it myself.’ Ultimately, it ended up getting that CAPTCHA solved.

It does not take a great degree of imagination to see where that can go. I don’t know what kind of safeguards you can program into a technology like that, other than to completely keep it firewalled off from the internet and from any other computer system that it may be able to commandeer.”

On his website, Corbett has a section called The Solutions Watch, where he proposes action steps that you can take to address a given problem, both big and small. For example, on the smaller scale, he’s discussed the importance of filtering your water, and testing your water to ensure it’s being filtered properly.

“One thing that I think is sort of the foundation upon which we will have to build any thoroughgoing answer to the problems we’re facing is creating conscious community with others,” Corbett says.

“Of course, that can take the form of online and virtual community. I’m not going to pooh-pooh or disdain that. I think it is important to know like-minded people online. But increasingly, how can we trust what we are reading, seeing or interacting with online?

I think the real point is to try to build real community with real people in the real world. That could take the form of intentional communities that are created from the ground up as a physical location that people will relocate to … but I think it is extremely difficult to do that.

But at the very least, people can and should be finding like-minded people within their geographical proximity that they can meet up with, who will be there in emergencies, hopefully. But also that they can start forming small groups, that they can start teaching each other about various things that they may know and bringing solutions to the table.

I think that can be the core basis upon which we start erecting other things, because one thing that I’ve looked at over the years are some of these big, huge issues that seem utterly overwhelming and completely impenetrable to the average person, like the fundamental fraud that underlies the economy itself is the monetary system, which for people who haven’t looked into it, the money supply itself is very much controlled, and the creation of money is a tool that is used for enslavement.

It could be used for human flourishing, but is not in our current economy. How do we possibly combat a problem as thoroughgoing as that? [Many people] I encounter online have ideas about the perfect alternative currency … but [they] haven’t convinced anyone to use it. To me, that speaks to the fundamental problem.”

At the top of Corbett’s solutions list is building parallel communities. That’s really a foundational strategy because without it, many other solutions can’t work. To that, I would add the recommendation to move out of crime-ridden urban and metropolitan areas and into areas where this kind of community-building is more likely to succeed. As noted by Corbett:

“Until you have a community of people who are going to be working together on projects like an alternative or supplemental currency system, how are you going to launch something like that in a thoroughgoing manner?

I think the core of the solutions that we’re looking for lies with community, meeting like-minded people … I’m not into this Pollyanna thinking that it’s all going to be easy. It’s an incredibly, incredibly difficult task to start creating an alternate currency, an alternate power grid and the alternate society that we need to protect ourselves, to buffer ourselves from this encroaching biosecurity, technocratic enslavement grid.

That’s a pretty tall order, and I can’t offer any assurances that it’s going to turn out all right. But I do know that if we just lay down and continue on the course that we’re on, we are hurtling towards a brick wall of extinction, essentially. I really see this as a fundamental existential question that we are facing not just on the artificial intelligence front, but also on the genomic manipulation front, on the manipulation of the food supply.

If you are what you eat, then what does it mean that they’re going to start feeding us insects and other such unpalatable items?

It is absolutely a war that is taking place on every front, all at once, and we’re not going to get through this by ourselves. Unless you are the type of person that can go out in the woods and live by yourself for decades … I don’t think you’re going to escape this all by yourself, so I think creating community is sort of the core of all solutions.”

Corbett’s reports, Solution Watch and documentaries can all be found on his website, He also does a weekly news update series with James Evan Pilato of, in which they examine three news stories that are either trending or have slipped beneath the radar. “We try to draw attention to them and put them in the right context,” Corbett says.

Corbett’s work can also be found on BitChute, Odyssee, Rumble, Rokfin and Substack. Other trustworthy news sources that Corbett recommends include but are not limited to:

Editor’s Note: This article is a reprint. It was originally published December 23, 2018.

In this interview, Bruce Ames, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California Berkeley, currently senior scientist at the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, discusses the importance of vitamins and minerals for longevity and explains his “triage theory” of nutrients.

Ames was born two weeks after my dad, who passed away earlier this year, so he is 90 years old. He developed the famous and widely used Ames test, which tests the mutagenicity of compounds. In recent years, he’s shifted from his work in mutagenicity to focusing on nutrition for healthy aging. He recently published a paper

in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on this topic.

In that paper, he proposes the recommended level of many vitamins may be insufficient for longevity. In other words, the levels required to diminish disease may not be the same as the levels required to optimize longevity. Ames explains:

“In 2006, I was getting interested in vitamins. I worked on mitochondria, which are the organelles in the cell that make all your adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the high-energy molecule that drives your metabolism. But one of the side effects is it bleeds out oxidants. Oxidants are mutagenic. They can damage DNA.

They can damage protein and other molecules, just like radiation. Some of the same oxidants that come from radiation also come from your own aging mitochondria. It decays with age. Anyway, I was thinking, ‘If vitamin C and vitamin E do all those good things, I wonder about the other vitamins.’

I started thinking about it, and it occurred to me that the body is becoming deficient in vitamins all the time, because people don’t eat balanced diets. They fill themselves up with sugary soft drinks and empty carbohydrates, which don’t have any vitamins.

You need 30 different vitamins and minerals … Your body cannot make minerals. You have to get them from your diet. The same thing with vitamins.”

In 2006, he published a purely theoretical paper

in which he postulated that when a cell becomes short on a vitamin, it starts to ration it, favoring protein enzymes essential for immediate survival over those that help prevent long-term diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Each vitamin is found in many proteins. Zinc, for example, is in 2,000 proteins; magnesium is in 300. Biotin, which is in the fewest number of proteins, is in only five. Now, from the time that this nutrient rationing starts occurring, it could be a decade or more before cancer or heart disease (or other chronic ailment) actually develops.

“So, what you’re doing is trading long-term health for short-term health,” Ames says. “You may look perfectly OK, but if you’re not eating a good diet, you’re aging yourself fast.”

He dubbed this nutrient rationing theory the triage theory,

from the battlefield term used by French doctors during World War I. Since they were short-staffed, wounded soldiers were divided into three groups: those who would survive without care; those who would die despite care; and those who might survive with care. The doctors treated the third group, where their time and energy could be of best use.

“Dr. Joyce McCann, [Ph.D.,] in my lab, who is a terrific scientist, said, ‘Let’s test this theory. Let’s [review] the literature on one vitamin and one mineral’ … She picked vitamin K2, which is involved with 16 proteins, and selenium, a mineral that’s only involved with 25 proteins. In nine months, she got a scientific paper

out showing that both of them have this triage system built in,” Ames says.

“It’s easy to explain for vitamin K2, because lots of vitamin K proteins are involved with blood clotting. Blood clotting is clearly essential for survival; otherwise you’d cut yourself and bleed to death. There are a whole handful of proteins that are vitamin K-dependent proteins that involve blood clotting. Those get [the vitamin K2] first. The same was shown for selenium.

The [proteins] that get starved are the ones that are preventing cancer or heart disease. My new paper

that just came out, ‘Prolonging Healthy Aging: Longevity Vitamins and Proteins,’ shows that this is going to be a major factor in aging, because we’re eating horrible diets.”

In his paper, he rank-orders the nutrients in terms of importance, many of which people tend to be deficient in, based on the estimated average requirement (EAR). For example:

  • Vitamin D — 70% of people don’t get enough based on the EAR

  • Vitamin E — 60% of people don’t get enough based on the EAR

  • Magnesium — 45% of people don’t get enough based on the EAR

That said, the EAR criterion is not an optimal amount, even for disease prevention, as it does not take long-term health into account. Evidence now suggests an ideal vitamin D level, for example, is between 60 and 80 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL), which means probably 85% to 90% of the population are deficient.

Vitamin D is primarily obtained from sun exposure. It’s called the sunshine vitamin because when ultraviolet (UV) light hits your skin, the cholesterol derivative is converted into active vitamin D. It’s a really important steroid hormone that plays an important role in gene activation.

Ames himself admits taking “lots of vitamins,” but has also eaten a healthy natural diet most of his life. Ideally, you’d get most of your vitamins and minerals from your diet. Magnesium, for example, is found in the center of the chlorophyll molecule, so leafy greens is a good source.

Similarly, folic acid comes from the Latin word “folia,” which means leaf. “My mentor at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) first isolated folic acid from 4 tons of spinach,” he says, adding the clarification, “Folate just means the salt, and folic acid is the acid.”

Omega-6s and omega-3 fats are also crucial for healthy aging. As noted by Ames:

“Omega-3s are very important in the brain. We need both of them. But our cooking oils are mostly omega-6s, and your body cares about the ratio. We’re all deficient or mostly deficient, unless you eat a lot of fish, in omega-3s.

My former postdoc, Dr. Rhonda Patrick, [Ph.D.], recently published a beautiful paper. The genetic causes of Alzheimer’s disease is a gene called Apolipoprotein E4 (ApoE4). If you have that one copy of that gene, you have three times the risk of Alzheimer’s. If you have two copies, you have 15 times the risk.

If you have one copy and you get a concussion, then you’re going to get Alzheimer’s. It’s really important. She worked out the mechanism, [showing] it has to do with transporting omega-3 into the brain as the fatty acid.

That blood-brain barrier deteriorates with age. By the time you get old like me — I was 90 [in December 2018] — the system for bringing that into the brain isn’t working very well. She marshals the evidence that that’s what’s causing Alzheimer’s.”

The ideal ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fats ranges from 1-to-1 to 1-to-5, but the typical Western diet tends to be between 1-to-20 and 1-to-50. Most people, especially Americans, are guilty of this lopsided omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, and to correct it, you typically need to do two things:

  1. Significantly decrease intake of damaged omega-6 by avoiding processed foods and foods cooked in vegetable oil at high temperatures. Common sources of harmful omega-6 to avoid include corn oil, canola oil, soy oil, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats, margarine and shortening.

  2. Increase your intake of animal-based omega-3 fats. Ideal sources include small fatty fish such as sardines, anchovies and herring, along with wild-caught Alaskan salmon, or a supplement such as krill oil.

Aside from vitamins and minerals, Ames’ paper also addresses a few other nutrients that appear particularly important for longevity, such as ergothioneine, an amino acid primarily produced in mushrooms, which he categorizes as “conditionally essential.” He explains:

“Some vitamins come from just a few sources. Ergothioneine is something that’s not officially called a vitamin, although a few people have suggested it ought to be. It does some useful things in the body. It happens to come from fungi and mushrooms.”

Other valuable longevity supplements (not all of which are included in Ames’ paper) are:

  • N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), a precursor needed for glutathione biosynthesis. Many of its benefits relate back to the fact that it helps boost production of glutathione, an important antioxidant your body produces naturally that helps reduce free radical damage and plays a role in the detoxification of heavy metals and other harmful substances.

  • Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a derivative of vitamin B3 (niacin), which is a very important coenzyme in metabolism. NAD sufficiency appears to be important for supplying an enzyme called poly ADP-ribose polymerase or PARP, which is believed to be one of the primary repair mechanisms for damaged DNA. Ames explains:

    “There are 50 enzymes cruising along your DNA looking for trouble. When they see a bump that shouldn’t be there, they cut it out and fill it in. That helps repair the DNA. They all require magnesium, so magnesium’s going to be important as well. It hasn’t been [determined yet] but I suspect magnesium deficiency gives you more mutations.”

    Taking enough niacin will help ensure you have a sufficiency of NAD coenzyme. However, while your body has a very effective salvage pathway that recycles most of the NAD in your body, if you’re abusing your body with exposures to electromagnetic fields and other forms of oxidative stress that cause DNA damage and depletes NAD through PARP consumption, then it may be wise to consider some type of augmentation program.

  • Carotenoids such as zeaxanthin, lutein and astaxanthin.

  • Choline, which is needed for detoxification of soluble toxins that we’re exposed to on a regular basis. Even though your body makes some choline, it does not produce enough.

    You can take it as a supplement, but it’s typically sold in the form of a phospholipid, such as phosphatidylcholine. One of the primary sources of choline in the diet is egg yolks. Patrick, in her paper on omega-3s and Alzheimer’s showed you can get omega-3s into the brain when it’s attached to phosphatidylcholine.

  • Acetyl-L-carnitine (not regular L-carnitine), which appears to be particularly beneficial for improving memory. Ideally, you need about 2,000 to 2,500 milligrams a day. Most notice a difference after a few weeks.

  • Alpha lipoic acid, an antioxidant shown to improve mitochondrial health and inhibit Alzheimer’s disease progression.

Ames is currently working on a paper called “Latitude Mismatch,” in which he discusses the importance of vitamin D supplementation for people with dark skin, as they’re not making enough vitamin D at northern latitudes.

“We’re trying to see whether that’ll explain why African-Americans have higher rates of certain birth defects, as well as more cancer and more heart disease. I think vitamin D might explain it more,” he says. “Vitamin D is turning on and off 2,700 genes. It’s a hugely important substance …

I point out in my paper that nutrients aren’t drugs. If you do a clinical trial on a drug, nobody has it [in their body]. But if you do it with a nutrient, maybe half the population has it, and it washes out your studies, so they’re all negative.

You have to measure it at the beginning and not test it on people who have enough. And then measure it at the end to make sure you gave enough to raise the levels to the right levels.”

To learn more about vitamins and minerals required for longevity, I highly recommend reading through Ames’ paper,

Prolonging Healthy Aging: Longevity Vitamins and Proteins.”

energy pulse at the moment of the activation was very strong yet
gentle, sending the purest energies of cosmic Love from the M87
galaxy to the surface of this planet. The pulse has corrected the
planetary timeline, decreasing the probability for conventional world
war from 33% to 27% and the probability for hard financial crash from
37% to 32%:

a few days before the activation:

the weeks before the activation and the weeks after it, the Light
forces have managed to clear many exotic weapons of the dark forces,
and the positive timeline is now much more stable than ever before.

by utilizing Mjolinr technology, the Light forces have evaporated all
physical and non-physical black holes around the surface of the
planet, including all black holes in the auric fields and all black
holes inside implants of the surface population. This has collapsed
all Tunnels of Set and the dark grid around the planet is no longer
an inverted grid, but only a distorted grid. Without black holes,
Kabbalistic black magic is much less effective, since qliphoth no
longer exist:

the Light forces have destroyed all remaining toplet bombs. This is a
huge victory, since topet bombs represented major danger to the
planet and a huge barrier against the planetary liberation.

the past, I was quite optimistic and naive by believing that as soon
as the toplet bombs are removed, the Event will happen. The reality
is much more complex. The surface population is much more programmed
than previously believed, and much more of the etheric matrix and
subquantum anomaly must be removed to safely guide the surface
population through the Event process without key persons freaking
out, because basic food and energy distribution chains must remain
largely intact at the moment of the Event.

good news is that removing all remaining obstacles will be much
easier, relatively faster and much less risky than removing the
toplet bombs.

Light forces have also manged to completely clear the higher mental
plane from all dark entitites, and they have broken the control the
dark forces had over the lower mental and the astral plane. Almost
all Invisibles have been removed. The few remaining dark entities on
the astral plane are disorganized, in flight, and are no longer part
of the dark network. All Lords of Karma (Lords of Trauma) that have
not been captured and taken to the Galactic central Sun have escaped
from higher planes to the etheric and physical planes, where they
still hold control.

bodies of humanity are recovering from the shock of 1996 and are
healing nicely.

implants on the mental and astral planes have mainly decomposed, only
the etheric implants and physical biochips remaining.

main problem remains the etheric matrix / etheric archon grid,

Tiny Battery Obliterates Breast Cancer Tumors in Mice by Creating Oxygen-free Target to Better Kill Disease


A tiny implant has placed a big target on the back of breast cancer tumors in mice, according to the results of a new study reported by South West News Service and New Scientist.

In the small study, a self-charging battery enabled a new class of medications to kill the tumors—and it took just two weeks to obliterate them, while leaving healthy tissue alone.

Salt water injected into the surrounding area causes the battery to consume oxygen, which singles-out the cancer cells and creates a condition called hypoxia.

By creating a hypoxic environment, the battery significantly boosts the efficiency of HAP cancer medications (hypoxia-activated pro-drugs) that seek to exploit this trait by only killing hypoxic cells. Previously, no HAPs have been approved for clinical use due to limited evidence of their effectiveness.

“After 14 days, the Tumors in the five mice that received both the working battery and HAP treatment had decreased by an average of 90 percent,” said lead author Professor Fan Zhang, of Fudan University in Shanghai, China, “with four of these mice experiencing complete tumor disappearance.”

Conversely, the tumors in the other mice groups either remained the same size or continued to grow.

Self-charging battery enhances anti-tumor therapy – via study from Prof. Fan Zhang / Fudan University, Shanghai

The Chinese team placed the device inside the armpits of 25 lab rodents with breast cancer. Other groups received no treatment, HAP drugs only, a non-functional implanted battery, or just the working battery.

The battery can operate for up to 500 hours within mouse tissue, producing very low voltage electricity.

“The battery can cover the Tumor and persistently consume the oxygen within it for more than 14 days, which is much longer than previous agents that worked for, usually, not more than two days,” explained Prof. Zhang.

“Hypoxia-activated prodrugs aim to take advantage of this feature by only targeting hypoxic cells—minimizing damage to healthy cells and reducing side effects.”

Reacting to the study published in Science Advances, Cambridge University Prof. Randall Johnson said he believed inducing hypoxia in a tumor may increase the risk the cancer will spread.

“While this didn’t appear to occur in these mice, the costs and benefits of the battery’s use in people needs to be assessed before any human treatment.”

Colorado Wild Horse Bill Passes With Huge Majority of Politicians Supporting Laws to Protect the State’s Mustangs

Wild horses in Colorado – In Defense of Animals

The Colorado General Assembly has passed unprecedented and groundbreaking legislation known as The Colorado Wild Horse Project, a new law that adds state protections for the rights of mustangs and burros to reside in their homes, instead of being traumatically and expensively rounded up.

The move comes as a response to last year’s tragedy when 145 horses died during a flu outbreak in a holding facility that was later found to be in breach of 13 policies.

The bill’s sponsors included the Colorado House Majority Leader, Rep. Monica Duran (D), and the House Minority Leader, Rep. Mike Lynch (R), reflecting the vast bipartisan support in the General Assembly where SB23-275 was passed by an overwhelming majority of lawmakers—an indication of how important wild horses and public lands are to a broad swath of Americans.

Nationally, the US Congress unanimously passed the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act to protect America’s wild equids. But in 2004, many of the protections that the law provided were repealed when Senator Conrad Burns (R-Montana) attached a rider to the massive 3,000-page Omnibus Appropriations bill.

“We are thrilled state legislators have honored Colorado citizens’ overwhelming support for wild horses,” said Ginger Fedak, a Colorado resident and Senior Campaigner for In Defense of Animals. “With (its) passage, we can lead the way for other states and national legislation to rebalance the rights of mustangs and burros to live on our public lands.”

Wild horse advocates have been campaigning for more humane, practical, and affordable solutions to wild horse roundups and warehousing for years. Colorado will be the first state to put some of these into practice on a state level.

SB23-275 prioritizes retaining healthy wild horse herds in Colorado’s four Herd Management Areas (HMAs), thereby reducing costly and destructive removals. The legislation also aims to improve the poor quality of expensive holding facilities where wild animals were being confined in perpetuity.

The new law also provides more staffing and resources for fertility control measures in the state’s herds.

A working group of various stakeholders experienced in wild horse issues will seek to find new areas for hundreds of the captured mustangs to live in sanctuary-type settings or be suitably adopted by horse farms when they adaptable to domestic life.

Funding for this new program will get a start-up of state funding of $1.5 million, after which private funding and support will be utilized.

WATCH: This Determined Bull Thinks He’s a Show-Jumping Horse!

After state legislators, including those with ranching interests, passed the bill last week by a margin of 58 to 7. Governor Polis, who is a strong proponent of improved wild equid management over roundups and removals, is likely to soon sign the bill into law.

“We hope Colorado can lead the way to a better, more humane approach to caring for these cherished wild horses,” says Ms. Fedak. “We stand with our allies, ready to help Colorado’s innovative new plan work and show by example how we can save our wild herds of mustangs and burros.”
