Many of you are aware the Mercola website disappeared early Friday morning, September 23, 2022. This outage wasn’t scheduled, but we have been planning and preparing for the possibility that hackers might succeed in their attempts to take us down for some time now.   

The past few years have brought many challenges. Attacks have been ongoing for the past six years, but have really concentrated over the last two. Media, U.S. senators, attorneys general, federal agencies and Big Tech have all been used by the global cabal to illegally shut down our right to free speech.

In April 2021, two state attorneys general threatened social media companies with legal ramifications if they didn’t censor me, and in July that year President Biden himself demanded I be banned from all social media.

By early August 2021, the free speech attacks had intensified to the point where the best choice available was to make articles viewable for free for only 48 hours. After that, they were transferred to a subscription platform (Substack) which provides legal protection of a private membership association.

As demanded by the White House, my reach on social media has since been throttled back to next to nothing. Still, that wasn’t enough. In February 2022, former National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins blamed me personally for the government’s inability to bring the COVID pandemic to a close. This despite the fact that I was by then heavily censored just about everywhere.

The only people, really, who saw my information were those who subscribed to my newsletter and received it by email. In this latest attack on my website, they tried to eliminate even that ability to share information.

The global cabal also have other ways to shut down opposition. A key strategy is to destroy you financially and prevent you from making a living. Before our website was successfully hacked and taken down, our bank accounts were closed and credit cards canceled. Our business partners have also had their PayPal accounts shut down. I discussed all of this in my 25th anniversary video (above).

The strategy to close financial accounts and/or withhold funds for months on end has been employed across the world,1 2 and proves many private companies are anything but independent and impartial service providers. The truth is, Big Tech has been weaponized to suppress dissent, and the global cabal is using it for all it’s worth.

It started with suppression and harassment of those who dissented against COVID tyranny. Then they started suppressing those with more conservative political views. The next target is anyone’s guess. It could be anything, really, which is why the right to free speech must be protected at all costs.

We simply cannot pick and choose “approved speech.” All speech must be equally protected. We must also ensure that private service companies cannot be used as weapons for totalitarian control, which is precisely how PayPal has been used.

As reported by Summit News:3

“Although PayPal has been banning conservatives and right-wingers for years, its recent move to terminate accounts operated by the Free Speech Union and other groups in the UK that opposed lockdowns and vaccine mandates has apparently been a step too far.

Following the controversy, dozens of Conservative Party MPs … signed an open letter to Jacob Rees-Mogg’s Business Department demanding that PayPal be legally barred from imposing discriminatory practices.

The letter asserts that it is ‘hard to avoid construing PayPal’s actions as an orchestrated, politically motivated move to silence critical or dissenting views on these topics within the U.K.’ [The] London Times also published a powerful piece4 by Jawad Iqbal which highlighted the dangers of allowing PayPal to abuse such powers.

‘This is censorship by corporate diktat: the company sets its own rules and interprets them as it sees fit. It appears oblivious to the notion that it is wrong in principle to withdraw vital services from people because of their political views.

Would it be acceptable for a supermarket to refuse to serve a customer because of their politics or for a high street bank to refuse to make a payment to a company it deemed politically objectionable?’ asked Iqbal.

After questions were asked in Parliament about the issue, a new law could be on the cards that would put an end to PayPal’s crusade against dissident viewpoints.‘Conservative backbenchers are considering launching an amendment to upcoming financial legislation in the House of Commons that would ban companies from freezing campaigners’ accounts,’ reports the Telegraph.”

We’re not giving up though. We see right through this coordinated agenda. A game of chess is being played out and our lives and future liberty are at stake. We simply cannot give up our rights and freedoms — for any reason — because they won’t stop there. They intend to take literally everything from us, all of us.

“Always remember that challenges are opportunities to become stronger as individuals and as a society. Standing up for a good cause — and there’s no better cause than freedom — actually makes you more powerful as it strengthens your resiliency.”

We have won many battles and are stronger and more enlightened by each one. Importantly, we’ve broken through the blinding fog of the COVID war together, which is why they’re upping the ante.

Always remember that challenges are opportunities to become stronger as individuals and as a society. Standing up for a good cause — and there’s no better cause than freedom — actually makes you more powerful.

Facing adversity head-on makes you more resilient as it forces you to think outside the box and come up with new and better solutions. And believe me, we have bigger and better solutions in the works to prevent these kinds of interruptions from happening in the future!

While we work on restoring everything, our website will temporarily operate through Substack, which will host our content for the first 48 hours free of charge. It is imperative that you sign up for a free subscription to my Substack to receive our daily newsletter. Please also bookmark the website should you not receive our emails. 

You can find my Substack website at: TakeControl.Substack.com. More updates will be coming, so please be sure to subscribe to my Substack website or bookmark the page and visit daily. Our online marketplace was restored over the weekend and can be reached at MercolaMarket.com.

If you’re still using Gmail, I urge you to reconsider, as Google is not only harvesting every word from every email you send and receive, they’re also censoring your inbox.

While about 50% of our subscribers are using Gmail accounts to receive our daily newsletter, the delivery rate for Gmail is HALF of other email providers, such as ProtonMail. I am certain that at some point in the not too distant future they will stop delivering ANY of our emails to Gmail accounts.

So, please understand if you are one of the 50% who are receiving our newsletter by email the time is NOW to opt out of Gmail as your primary email client. You can keep it for things that don’t matter or are irrelevant, but with anything that counts, like the vital information you receive in our newsletter, the time has come to opt out of Gmail.

It is just another clever censoring strategy they have at their disposal. So, if you’re using Gmail to receive our newsletter, please change it immediately. If you’re a subscriber, I strongly urge you to sign up to my Substack with another email account — and cancel your Gmail altogether.

ProtonMail is an excellent alternative. It provides end-to-end encryption to protect your content and other user data. Proton also provides an encrypted calendar, encrypted cloud storage and free VPN. Once Mercola.com is back online, then re-subscribe with your ProtonMail.

While the global cabal probably viewed the COVID pandemic as the ace up their sleeve — the event that would allow them to usher in The Great Reset and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (i.e., transhumanism and a post-human world) without too much trouble — it didn’t work out quite as they planned.

The authoritarian tactics have instead resulted in a worldwide awakening. More people than ever are now starting to realize that the world doesn’t operate the way we thought it did. Everything is rigged. There’s been an agenda at play for decades, and many of the things we embraced for their convenience and usefulness are now turning out to be clever traps to enslave and impoverish us against our will.

People are starting to realize that social engineering has been at work for a long time, and that data harvesting is not an innocent business venture. They’re starting to see just how the prison has been built up around us. It’s not completed yet, but the global cabal is closer than ever to their goal of controlling the global population. This is why we cannot give up or give in, no matter how many times they try to knock us down.

The fact that this cabal doesn’t have the safety and well-being of mankind as their primary motivation is now clearly self-evident. In recent months, more and more evidence has emerged allowing us to put the puzzle pieces of the COVID pandemic and its ultimate purpose together, and it’s not a pretty picture.

Between the SARS-CoV-2 bioweapon, the COVID shot bioweapon, the intentional lack of early treatment and the mistreatment in hospitals, the lockdowns, mask mandates and isolation requirements, and the subsequent mental health problems, loss of work and education, lack of medical care, suicides and drug overdoses, the decision makers in this COVID “war game” have injured and killed more people than any previous genocide in human history.

We’re literally living through the greatest crime against humanity the world has ever seen, and bioweapons research is an important factor that allowed for all of this to happen.

Evidence points to SARS-CoV-2 being the result of a lab leak, and that Dr. Anthony Fauci, Harvard researchers, China, the mainstream media, the World Health Organization and tech companies all worked together to cover it up. U.S. Right to Know recently published a detailed timeline of this cover-up.5

I’ve repeatedly discussed the end goal of the global cabal, from various angles. While their strategies are manifold and complex, the end goal is rather simple. They intend to create a two-tiered society of have’s and have not’s. The top-tier will be augmented transhumanists who will control the world’s resources — and that includes the rest of us.

To them, you and I are not only ignorant and contemptible but a resource to be used and disposed of at will, and they don’t want a disposable resource to use up more valuable resources such as land, property, food, water and energy. The Green Agenda is all about restricting our ability to access resources and live free.

They intend to seize complete control over the world and implement tyrannical global slavery, and to do that, they have to silence any and all opposition. I’m just one of many. So far, they’ve not succeeded in silencing me, and many others are also not giving up but, rather, adapting and inventing new ways to communicate truth and share information.

No matter what they throw at us, we simply must stay the course and refuse to give up or resign ourselves to their slave system. Information is power, and no matter how small your reach, never stop sharing information, and never give in to their intimidation tactics. The future of humanity is at stake.

I am committed to continue to empower you with the truth about health and the global cabal’s threats to your health and liberty. But the only way I can do that is if you continue to receive our daily emails, so please be sure the email client you are using is not Gmail as there is a high likelihood you will not receive them in the future due to their censorship strategies.

New Communist Law Forces Doctors to Promote Pharma Products

  • A proposed California law — AB 2098 — gives the state power to take away doctors’ medical licenses if they spread “misinformation” that goes against the standard COVID-19 rhetoric

  • It’s akin to putting shackles on their wrists, forcing doctors to conform to a narrative intent on pushing dangerous gene therapies and ineffective medications

  • Making the law even more unsettling is its vagueness; what constitutes “misinformation” or “disinformation” worthy of taking away a person’s medical license is anyone’s guess

  • AB 2098 is packed with misinformation that continues to be parroted as facts, ignoring the scientific truths about COVID-19

  • The bill, if it passes, will stop doctors from practicing medicine the way they deem best for the individual patient; it will also stop dissent — even when dissent is necessary and beneficial, and coming from people with expertise

A proposed California law — AB 2098 — gives the state power to take away doctors’ medical licenses if they spread “misinformation” that goes against the standard COVID-19 rhetoric.

Specifically, those who “disseminate or promote misinformation or disinformation related to COVID-19, including false or misleading information regarding the nature and risks of the virus, its prevention and treatment; and the development, safety, and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines” could be “disciplined,” which includes loss of their medical license.1

It’s akin to putting shackles on their wrists, forcing them to conform to a narrative intent on pushing dangerous gene therapies and ineffective medications. It’s also a potential warning of darker things to come.

Making the law even more unsettling is its vagueness. What constitutes “misinformation” or “disinformation” worthy of taking away a person’s medical license? It’s anyone’s guess, really. According Jay Bhattacharya, a professor specializing in epidemiology and health policy at Stanford Medical School, who has been the target of a smear campaign due to his beliefs about COVID-19:22

“The language of the bill itself is intentionally vague about what constitutes ‘misinformation,’ which makes it even more damaging. Doctors, fearing loss of their livelihoods, will need to hew closely to the government line on Covid science and policy, even if that line does not track the scientific evidence.

After all, until recently, top government science bureaucrats like Dr. Fauci claimed that the idea that Covid came from a Wuhan laboratory was a conspiracy theory, rather than a valid hypothesis that should be open to discussion. The government’s track record on discerning Covid truths is poor.”

Similarly, you don’t have to be violent to be declared a terrorist. You may simply have what the government deems to be “extremist views” or could be accused of spreading disinformation — although there’s no clear definition of what “disinformation” is. The definition of what constitutes a “domestic terrorist” is incredibly vague and based on ideologies, much like what constitutes COVID “misinformation.”

This creates a dangerous slippery slope, one that’s connected to the attempts to have increased surveillance and tracking of Americans’ data after 9/11,3 and the accelerated censorship and control that’s occurred due to COVID-19. Independent journalist Whitney Webb explained:4

“There is talk in the domestic terror strategy that people who spread disinformation can also be classified as extremists and a threat to national security, and of course, we’ve seen over the past several years, how this disinformation label can be applied to independent media as a way to promote censorship of voices that are critical of U.S. empire, among other things, or that just don’t fit a particular government narrative.”

What happens when government interferes with doctors’ ability to practice medicine? The people’s health suffers. In the case of Bill 2098, it’s packed with misinformation that continues to be parroted as facts, ignoring the scientific truths about COVID-19. Bhattacharya detailed several examples:5

  • It ignores natural immunity. Prior infection with COVID-19 results in natural immunity — immunity that’s superior to that achieved via a COVID-19 shot.6 Throughout the pandemic, government officials refused to acknowledge this when it came to vaccine mandates.

    “High quality studies have shown that this ‘natural immunity’ provides equivalent or even greater protection than immunity generated by Pfizer and Moderna’s mRNA vaccines. If this bill passes, would a California physician be in trouble for taking into account a patient’s Covid history when making vaccination recommendations?”7

  • It states that the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 shots have been confirmed by the FDA. Another misleading statement, the shots carry serious risks and failure to prevent transmission and infection have been demonstrated. “Vaccine safety also depends on any given patient’s clinical circumstances,” Bhattacharya explained. “For example, there is an elevated risk of myocarditis in young men taking the vaccine, especially with the booster.”8

The bill, if it passes, will stop doctors from practicing medicine the way they deem best for the individual patient. It will also stop dissent — even when dissent is necessary and beneficial, and coming from people with expertise. And that’s precisely the point. Bhattacharya continued:9

“[E]ven physicians who practice medicine responsibly or give public presentations grounded in solid scientific research on the evolving Covid science may face unjust license suspensions. The ultimate effect of the bill will be to chill public criticism by California doctors of mistaken government public health diktats since few will want to put their licenses in the hands of the very public health officials with whom they disagree over the interpretation of science.

Even legitimate dissent from public health orthodoxy by licensed doctors may be excised from the public square as a consequence. Worse, the widespread distrust Americans now have in public health institutions will only deteriorate further … the California Assembly bill turns doctors into agents of state public health rather than advocates for their patients.” 

California’s social medial transparency bill — AB 587 — was signed into law in September 2022, marking a first in the U.S. The bill requires social media companies to publicly disclose their policies regarding content moderation of topics like “hate speech, disinformation and extremism,”10 — again, those words with vague definitions.

It’s likely that other states will soon follow suit. According to an analysis by Computer & Communications Industry that was shared with The Washington Post, there are more than 100 bills in the U.S. targeting the regulation of content moderation policies on social media.11

AB 587 will require social media giants to submit reports to the state’s attorney general beginning in 2024. The reports must include details about how they monitor and flag content, and how much of it is removed or “deprioritized” as a result. Those that don’t submit the reports may be fined.12

While it may sound like such a bill could force more transparency into the way social media shapes content, Eric Goldman, a professor at Santa Clara University School of Law, warned of “censorial consequences” from AB 587:13

“Among other problems, by prioritizing certain content categories, the bill tells social media platforms that they must make special publication decisions in those categories to please the regulators and enforcers who are watching them.

The resulting distortions to the platforms’ editorial decision-making constitutes censorship. Any enforcement actions also will be impermissibly intrusive into the editorial practices of social media platforms, putting regulators in the middle of the editorial process and enabling them to second-guess the platforms’ editorial decisions.”

Goldman also explained that the bill won’t be useful for consumers because the statistical disclosures it dictates will not be comparable across social media sites or even within a single platform over time. The only silver lining to its censorial overreach is that Goldman predicts its time is limited:14

“The bill is likely to be struck down as unconstitutional at substantial taxpayer expense. The censorial consequences should trigger the highest level of constitutional scrutiny, but the undue burdens and lack of consumer benefit ensures it won’t survive even lower levels of scrutiny. As my blog post mentions, there are several other bases for constitutional challenges.”

What do state censorship of the Internet and the practice of medicine have in common? They’re signs of increasing measures of totalitarian control. In the past, totalitarian regimes used drastic and obvious shows of control, putting people into concentration camps. Today’s ruling establishment is far more subtle in its tactics, but possibly even more dangerous.15

People may not end up in prison-like camps as in the past, but then again, they might. Remember when the Chinese government locked people in their homes in Shanghai in the name of stopping COVID-19 spread? Think it will never happen here?

“In America, many of our officials still have not abandoned their delusions about COVID and the exercise of power this crisis has allowed,” Bhattacharya said. “As the Shanghai debacle demonstrates, of all the many terrible consequences of our public health response to COVID, the stifling of dissenting scientific viewpoints by the state might be the most dangerous.”16 

The end-game is a restrictive society based around technologies like vaccine passports and the upcoming central bank digital currency (CBDC), which could easily lead to tight control over your finances, limiting your ability to purchase food or pay rent if your access to your funds is turned off.

California’s state government doesn’t have the power of Chinese Communists, but it’s moving in that direction. History has shown us that allowing the government to regulate science is mistake multiple times over:17

“In the former Soviet Union, Stalin’s favorite geneticist, Trofim Lysenko, dominated biology and the agricultural sciences. Lysenko rejected Mendelian genetics in favor of his own theory that plants could inherit acquired characteristics.

Stalin empowered him to destroy the careers and lives of geneticists who opposed him, causing many to suffer secret arrests and even death. When his theories failed, the consequence was mass starvation in Russia. The Chinese Communists also adopted his beliefs—at the cost of the starvation of 30 million.”

It’s not only California that’s intent on hunting down doctors spreading “misinformation” like a modern-day witch hunt. The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) threatened in 2021:18 19

“Physicians who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license.”

Like California’s bill 2098, markedly absent from the statement is a definition of what constitutes “misinformation,” leaving the word wide open for interpretation. It’s not only physicians that are being hunted down but also academics, like Bhattacharya.

Bhattacharya, along with Sunetra Gupta, Ph.D., a professor at Oxford University, and Martin Kulldorff, Ph.D., a professor of medicine at Harvard University, wrote the Great Barrington Declaration in October 2020 to call attention to the devastating short- and long-term health effects being caused by pandemic lockdown policies and calling for a return to normalcy for those at low-risk.20

He and colleagues were attacked as a result, their reputations smeared; their ideas dubbed “misinformation” and censored. They even received death threats. Ultimately, the ideas they first posed at the start of the pandemic turned out to be sound and rationale. Yet, the attacks meant to silence dissent continue unabated. No lessons have been learned. As Bhattacharya said:21

“Despite the false, defamatory and sometimes frightening attacks, we stood firm. And today many of our positions have been amply vindicated. Yet the soul searching this episode should have caused among public health officials has largely failed to occur. Instead, the lesson seems to be: Dissent at your own risk.

… What is abundantly clear is that this bill [AB 2098] represents a chilling interference with the practice of medicine. The bill itself is full of misinformation and a demonstration of what a disaster it would be to have the legislature dictate the practice of medicine.”

Why Additional Engineered Pandemics Are To Be Expected

Download Interview Transcript | Download my FREE Podcast

  • Early on in the COVID pandemic, Francis Boyle, Ph.D., was sure it was the result of a lab leak. He believes monkeypox is another lab creation, as it now suddenly has 30 mutations from the wild monkeypox found in Africa

  • President Biden recently signed the Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy, and this order basically promises we’ll see additional manmade pandemics

  • Section 12, paragraph VII in Biden’s executive order states that the purpose of the order is to “develop and work and promote and implement … dual-use research of concern, and research involving potentially pandemic and other high-consequence pathogens”

  • That means they intend to perform gain-of-function research on deadly pathogens, any one of which could be released to create a global pandemic when a scare event is necessary to trick populations into choosing a false sense of safety over freedom. Boyle believes there’s no doubt there will be additional pandemics, because they’re intentionally creating them

  • Boyle believes monkeypox was engineered and released in an effort to scare governments and populations into accepting the World Health Organization’s pandemic treaty, which would make the WHO the sole decision-maker in pandemic situations

In this interview, repeat guest Francis Boyle — whose background includes an undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago, a juris doctor (lawyer) degree from Harvard and a Ph.D. in political science — shares his views on the latest efforts to instill fear in the public, this time about monkeypox.

For decades, Boyle has advocated against the development and use of bioweapons, which COVID-19 appears to be. He called for biowarfare legislation at the Biological Weapons Convention of 1972, and drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act, which was passed unanimously by both houses of Congress and signed into law by George Bush, Sr. in 1989.

Early on in the pandemic, Boyle was sure COVID-19 was the result of a lab leak. In fact, he was one of the first to bring that up. Of course, for the past two-plus years, anyone who shared the lab leak theory was vilified, discredited, censored and deplatformed. Today, we know that information was true, and even mainstream media are starting to report on it.

As detailed in “Executive Order Advances Biotech-Transhumanist Agenda,” President Biden recently signed the “Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe and Secure American Bioeconomy.”1 As noted by Boyle, this executive order basically ensures the creation of additional bioweapons:

“It’s a very lengthy executive order. At the very end, they give it all away, where it says, [in Section 12] Paragraph VII, that the purpose of this is to ‘develop and work and promote and implement … dual-use research of concern, and research involving potentially pandemic and other high-consequence pathogens …’

Now let me work that out for you. ‘Dual-use research of concern’ means offensive and then defensive biological warfare weapons. The Bidenites admit here that their agenda is to promote and implement more offensive biological warfare weapons. That’s what ‘dual-use research of concern’ means.

Then, to try to perfect these weapons with some type of bogus vaccine involving reverse engineering or something like that. Notice, they admit they are going to develop these offensive biological warfare weapons, ‘involving potentially pandemic and other high consequence pathogens.’

They are going to research, develop more biological warfare weapons like COVID-19, that the United States government was involved in. They admit this right here.

Now, you listen to the mainstream news media and everyone is saying ‘Yes, the next pandemic is coming.’ This is where it is coming from — right here, ‘dual-use research of concern involving potentially pandemic and other high consequence pathogens.’”

If you wonder whether this kind of dual-use bioweapons research might violate the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act, the answer is yes. The 1989 act directly prohibits this kind of activity. But beyond its unlawfulness, Boyle’s primary concern is that it’s existentially dangerous to continue down this path.

“COVID-19, which I was the first to blow the whistle on, was clearly an offensive biological warfare weapon with gain of function properties that had leaked out of that Wuhan BSL-4, China’s Fort Detrick.

The Bidenites have made it clear they’re going full speed ahead. They have crossed the Rubicon. They do not intend to turn back. They’re doubling down, they’re tripling down. In my opinion, this is what confronts us now today,” he says.

While some claim an executive order can override a previous law and/or signed treaty, according to Boyle, this is incorrect on both accounts.

“No, an executive order cannot override my Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act, and it cannot override the Biological Weapons Convention,” he says. “This is just an in-run around both of them — an attempted in-run, despite the fact that violation of my Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act is a felony punishable by life imprisonment.

The Department of Justice did want me, repeatedly, to put the death penalty in there, but I’m a lifelong abolitionist and I did not want any statute of mine to carry the death penalty.”

So, then, which takes precedence? And how do we resolve or reconcile this conflict? According to Boyle, no reconciliation is possible, barring new legislation by Congress.

“Whoever drafted this [executive order] knew full well that they were violating the Biological Weapons Convention and my Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act. An executive order cannot supersede either a treaty or a statute. Only a subsequent statute by Congress could do that.”

A related tangent brought up in the interview is how the Emergency Powers Act has been misused to strip us of personal freedoms and liberties. Essentially, this pandemic has demonstrated that you can turn a democratically elected Congress into a tyrannical regime that can rule without restraint.

Boyle recently published a book in which he discusses this, titled “Resisting Medical Tyranny: Why the COVID-19 Mandates Are Criminal.” In it, he also details how we can fight against this tyrannical overreach using peaceful and entirely legal means.

This is really important, and brings us to the issue of monkeypox, which was declared a public health emergency in late July 2022, as it cuts to the core of the global cabal’s strategy to enslave the world by progressively chipping away at our personal freedoms under the justification of “biosecurity.” As noted by Boyle:

“In my opinion, this monkeypox epidemic … was a biological warfare weapon with gain of function properties that came out of someone’s lab and was released in multiple locations to scare people. Why?

I don’t think it was a coincidence at all that the World Health Organization, their meeting at the World Health Assembly (WHA) was considering regulations that would have done, once again, an in-run over and around the sovereignty of the United States of America and our state and local governments to control our health care.

Under the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, public health falls within the control of state and local governments, not the federal government. That is why, down there in Florida or in Texas, you can have governors adopting different policies from [those] issued by the CDC [Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention] in Washington, D.C.

You have several governors now rebelling against these totalitarian dictatorial [edicts] coming out of Washington, D.C., In order to try to stop that, they came up with these regulations that they tried to get through the World Health Assembly earlier this summer, and that failed.

The monkeypox, in my opinion, was then released in order to scare the governments of the world into accepting these regulations. That failed,2 but … the WHO is now meeting to negotiate and conclude a treaty that will fold into it the same WHA regulations …

The purpose of this [global] WHO treaty, once again, is to do an in-run around American sovereignty to make decisions at a state and local basis as to how to treat matters of public health in the next pandemic, which they know is coming, because they’re already preparing for it in accordance with the biotech executive order that I just quoted to you.

They know it’s coming. They’re preparing it. They’re getting it ready. The next time, by means of this WHO treaty, they will then attempt to argue that the treaty is the supreme law of the land under Article VI of the U.S. Constitution and therefore trumps and displaces the ability of state and local governments … to determine public health.

Indeed, there is a Supreme Court case to that effect that they know all about, Missouri vs. Holland, that if a treaty is concluded, it does override the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. We have to understand these people know exactly what they are doing, and we have to stop them.”

The WHO met in Washington, D.C., from September 26 through September 30, 2022,3 and according to Boyle, treaty discussions were part of that session. Boyle suggests we need to call on our senators to sign a letter that they will vote against any WHO treaty coming down the line, and then forward that letter to the World Health Assembly, the WHO and member nations.

“If we can get one-third plus one members of the United States Senate to sign [such a letter], I think that will kill this proposed treaty,” Boyle says. Other nations could do the same. To be clear, this WHO treaty is global in nature, so the U.S. is not the only country that stands to lose its sovereignty were it to pass. All member states are in the same boat.

“If the treaty gets passed, then they will use that treaty to enforce WHO [recommendations] all over the world on the handling of the next pandemic, and that will get us all killed,” Boyle says.

“The WHO is a rotten, corrupt, criminal organization, and the proof of that is [that] the WHO is a sponsoring institution of the Wuhan BSL-4, which is China’s Fort Detrick. Imagine if the WHO were a sponsoring organization of our Fort Dietrich. We would know the cat was out of the bag. That’s exactly what’s going on here with the WHO.

The CDC, Bill Gates, the Chinese Communist government and Big Pharma that pay for the WHO will force everyone to continue to take more vaccines … and more boosters, forever. There’ll be no end to it.”

At present, it seems they will simply continue to push until the treaty passes. Getting at more than one-third of the U.S. Senate to reject any possible treaty with the WHO, now or in the future, may be the only way to stop it permanently.

“[The treaty] will probably pass the WHO assembly,” Boyle says. “The U.S. government representative could sign it and then they would send it to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for ratification by the Senate.

We need to head this off as soon as we can with this letter [signed by] one-third plus one of the Senate, just saying ‘We’re going to reject it.’ We have to start lobbying now against the treaty. We’ll have limited time once it goes to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Remember, the Democrats control the Senate. They control the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

They could get it through very quickly to present it to the full Senate. We have to go all out to stop this treaty. You’re down there in Florida. I would certainly hope you could alert Governor DeSantis to the dangers here. His powers will be terminated under the terms of this treaty to regulate all public health.

He’ll be obligated to obey whatever the WHO tells him to obey. If he does not, then the federal government can go into the United States federal district court and get an injunction under the treaty, mandating that he comply, and if he does not, he could be fined if not jailed for contempt. It’s a very dangerous situation.”

Indeed, most people don’t fully appreciate the implications of this WHO treaty. The ramifications are truly profound. Expanding on what could occur were it to be passed, Boyle says:

“I have already pointed out that in Biden’s executive order, they are going full steam ahead to develop offensive biological warfare weapons using DNA, genetic engineering, synthetic biology, gain-of-function properties, et cetera, including for pandemics.

That’s the next COVID-19 pandemic right there. They’ve admitted it in writing. Knowing full well the next pandemic is coming because they’re developing it, it’s coming out of their laboratories, we have to shut down their BSL-3 and BSL-4 [laboratories].

They are now planning and preparing — by means of this treaty — to demand that all public health authorities here in the United States of America obey anything the CDC tells them to do in the next pandemic, and in the COVID 19 pandemic.

If they do not, they can be sued before a federal judge in U.S. district court, get an injunction, get fines, be found guilty of contempt. That’s what’s at stake here. Yes, it will do a total in-run around the governors of Florida and Texas, North Dakota, et cetera, and eliminate all of their power.

The CDC and the WHO literally will be Stalinist dictators telling us what we have to do when it comes to the next pandemic, which they are already planning right now in accordance with Biden’s Biotechnology order. It’s that simple …

The biotechnology executive order and this WHO treaty are connected with each other, and the monkeypox [outbreak], I think, was designed to scaremonger everyone into going along with the WHO regulations and now with the WHO treaty. They needed something new, so monkeypox was released.”

At the time of this writing, there’s no U.S. campaign to get senators to sign a letter stating they will reject a WHO treaty. That has yet to be created. If you know of one, or get one started, be sure to share it in the comment section.

In the U.K, there’s a petition underway calling on the British Parliament to not sign any WHO pandemic treaty unless it is first approved by public referendum. If you’re in the U.K., you can sign that Parliamentary petition here.

The British parliament will consider all petitions with more than 100,000 signatures, and this one, at the time of this writing, has 154,660 signatures. It will remain open until November 17, 2022. (An earlier petition was rejected because it didn’t spell out what the people wanted government to do. The updated petition clarifies the desired action.)

While Boyle ended up on the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of worldview, he underwent the same education as many of the global cabal leaders who are now trying to destroy the world and, seemingly, everything and everyone in it. He explains:

“Klaus Schwab studied at Harvard, but not my program. The program I was in was the GSAS [graduate school of arts and sciences] Ph.D. program, where Harvard trains future professors of political science like [Henry] Kissinger, [Zbigniew] Brzezinski and Samuel Huntington.

Schwab went to the Kennedy School at Harvard. The Kennedy School is a misnomer because there Harvard trains future U.S. imperial governmental operatics and spear-carriers. They’re all warmongers and spooks there — I was there when it was set up — and their fellow travelers and fifth columnists in foreign countries that get incorporated into the U.S. imperial elite.

Klaus Schwab, when he studied there, said he found Kissinger to be the most competent person at Harvard. Well, Kissinger, I went through the exact same program [as him]. He is a diehard Machiavellian. There’s no question about it. He does not have a principled bone in his body … Kissinger was the one who got Schwab the job heading the Davos forum.

We have to understand that behind Kissinger, as behind Brzezinski, is the Rockefeller family paying the bills, pulling the strings. Kissinger and Brzezinski had been on the Rockefeller family payroll for quite some time. Brzezinski was head of the Trilateral Commission set up by David Rockefeller …

We also know that when Kissinger worked for Nixon, Kissinger put out that infamous national security directive that population control and reduction is part of the national security policy of the United States of America. I haven’t read anywhere that … [it] has been revoked. That is really what’s going on here with Klaus Schwab, the Davos forum, the Davos crowd, based on my experience.”

Even closer to the top of the globalist pyramid we find the Rothschild family, whose power preceded the Rockefellers by centuries. Considering Boyle has been a Harvard insider his entire career, how did he escape the brainwashing that occurs there?

“Well, what happened was, at the end of May 1967, I had just turned 17 and I was so appalled by the Vietnam War that I resolved to myself that I would get the most elite education I possibly could, and turn it against the people running United States Empire. That’s what happened. It’s what I decided to do with my life.”

As Boyle stated earlier, he believes monkeypox is another lab creation released for the purpose of scaring the public into accepting a health dictatorship under the leadership of the WHO.

“As I said, they are going to continue to release bioengineered pandemics on us when it suits their interest, like they did Amerithrax in October 2001 to ram the USA Patriot Act through Congress — which set up a police state in the United States of America that we are still grappling with — and like COVID-19 and the monkeypox too. There’ll be no end to this process.

My estimation in looking at the timing of the monkeypox, it clearly came out of someone’s biological warfare laboratory … It has 30 genetic mutations beyond the wild type monkeypox in Africa. The only way it could have gotten 30 genetic mutations beyond [wild] monkeypox is it was done in someone’s lab …

It was released just as they were trying to get these regulations through the World Health Assembly. It was deliberately designed to scaremonger governments to go along with those WHA regulations.

It’s still continuing today, to get this WHO treaty passed, though it hasn’t been as successful, I think, as they had originally believed [it would be]. [But] we know from the Biden executive order there will be some other biowarfare pandemic or epidemic coming, whenever they think they have to scare people into following their agenda, which is clearly set forth in The Great Reset by Schwab.

Just read his book. It’s all in there, including transhumanism and the rest of it … But I don’t think they have succeeded with the monkeypox to scare people enough to go along with this WHO treaty, which will put dictatorial powers in the hands of [WHO director-general] Tedros [Adhanom Ghebreyesus], the WHO, Bill Gates, the CDC and the Chinese communist government.

All that indicates is that we’ll probably have some other scaremongering biowarfare event. That’s pretty clear from the Biden administration biotech order. They’re planning and preparing it right now. It’s in someone’s lab. We just don’t know what it is going to be.”

Of course, they also have a number of other avenues they could use, including supply chain disruptions, food and fuel shortages, deindustrialization, nuclear war and more. So, there are a lot of different things they can do to activate the fear factor and seize global control.

Nuclear war is starting to look like a possibility as NATO keeps fanning the flames of conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and a nuclear emergency could also put the entire country under Marshall Law overnight. Boyle comments:

“The Bidenites appear, at this point, to be engaging in acts of hostility, belligerent acts, acts of war against Russia, without authorization by the United States Congress in violation of the War Powers Resolution, in violation of the War Powers Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

We are in a de facto, I would not say yet de jure, but a de facto state of war with Russia. Foreign Minister Lavrov has just said, ‘We’re on the verge of a de jure war with the United States.’ If it threatens to go nuclear, sure, the Bidenites could … put us all under Martial Law.”

To learn more about how you can resist tyrannical overreach, check out Boyle’s book, “Resisting Medical Tyranny: Why the COVID-19 Mandates Are Criminal.”

“I have several legal strategies in there that ordinary people can conduct, including trying to get state and local prosecutors to indict Fauci and the rest of them for murder and conspiracy to commit murder,” Boyle says.

“We want them to indict Fauci, not just file a civil lawsuit. We want them to indict. I had a 45-minute meeting by Zoom with the attorney general of Louisiana, and I went through the Louisiana homicide statute with respect to Fauci and Collins and the pharma people. He agreed with my theory of the case under the Louisiana homicide statute.

There it sits. We’ll have to see what he does with it. Then I had a 35-minute meeting with the Deputy Attorney General of South Carolina. I went through the South Carolina homicide statute with him, and he agreed with my theory of the case.

Basically, it’s a political issue. People need to demand that these two categories of people — those who developed COVID-19, Fauci and Collins, and then the executives of the drug companies making the Frankenshots — be indicted for murder and conspiracy to commit murder. Those [case details] are explained in great detail in my book, ‘Resisting Medical Tyranny.’”

Boyle also laid out this strategy in a previous interview, featured in “Roadmap for Prosecuting COVID Crimes.” I’ve been trying to implement that strategy myself, and am in the process of connecting U.S. Right to Know — a group that through FOIA request has amassed irrefutable evidence of a conspiracy to cover up the lab leak theory — with Florida’s attorney general.

I’m hoping we can get the attorney general’s office to indict the key criminals responsible for the creation of SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID shots, which have now killed and injured far more people worldwide than the virus itself. You can help by contacting the AGs of Louisiana, South Carolina and Florida and urging them to pursue these cases.

Fifth COVID Shot Recommended Without Safety or Efficacy Data

  • The emergency authorizations of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s bivalent COVID boosters are based on preliminary test results from a grand total of eight mice, and that data hasn’t even been made public

  • Based on the antibody response in eight mice, the Biden administration has ordered 171 million doses of the two boosters

  • A reanalysis of data from the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccine trials found that, combined, the jabs were associated with a risk increase of serious adverse events of special interest at a rate of 12.5 per 10,000 vaccinated. Meanwhile, the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization was only 2.3 per 10,000 participants for Pfizer and 6.4 per 10,000 for Moderna

  • According to a recent risk-benefit analysis of a third booster for university students, for each COVID hospitalization prevented, the booster will cause 18 to 98 serious adverse events

  • A number of top officials with the FDA, CDC and the NIH reportedly have serious concerns about the direction we’re going in, yet are too afraid to speak out or push back

August 31, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the reformulated COVID bivalent booster shots by Moderna and Pfizer1 — all without the required convening of its Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), which would typically discuss or vote on the authorization or approval of a new vaccine.

Instead, the FDA pushed the matter before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). ACIP met for eight hours September 1, 2022, and authorized the untested boosters 13-to-1.2 3 CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky endorsed the recommendation later that evening.

Pfizer’s new booster, authorized for people age 12 and older, is a bivalent injection targeting Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5, which are the two currently in circulation.

Moderna’s shot, authorized for adults only, aged 18 and older, targets the already extinct Wuhan strain and Omicron subvariant BA.1.4 The two bivalent boosters is only be available to those who have already received the primary two-dose series and/or a monovalent booster at least two months ago.5

As explained in “What They’re Not Telling You About the New mRNA Boosters,” the emergency authorization of these reformulated boosters is based on nothing more than preliminary test results from a grand total of eight mice,6 and that data hasn’t even been released to the public.

In an August 30, 2022, article, Science explained the makeup of the reformulated boosters:7

“Both the Pfizer-BioNTech collaboration and Moderna make their vaccines from messenger RNA (mRNA) coding for the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2. The new vaccines are bivalent.

Half of the mRNA codes for the spike protein of the ancestral virus strain that emerged in Wuhan, China, in late 2019, which is also in the original shots; the other half codes for the spike protein in BA.1 or the one in BA.4 and BA.5, which have identical spikes …

For the BA.4/BA.5 boosters, the companies have submitted animal data. They have not released those data publicly, although at the June FDA meeting, Pfizer presented preliminary findings in eight mice given BA.4/BA.5 vaccines as their third dose.

Compared with the mice that received the original vaccine as a booster, the animals showed an increased response to all Omicron variants tested: BA.1, BA.2, BA.2.12.1, BA.4, and BA.5.

The companies say clinical trials for the BA.4/BA.5 vaccines will begin next month [i.e. September 2022]; they need clinical data both for full approval of the vaccines — their recent submissions are only for emergency use authorization — and to help develop future updates.

Presumably they will measure recipients’ antibody levels, but not the vaccine’s efficacy against infection or severe disease. Such trials are very expensive and were not done for the BA.1 shot either.”

A key take-home here is that efficacy against infection and severe disease has NEVER been ascertained. Those trials were not done for the original shot, and won’t be done for the reformulated boosters. Yet the efficacy of these boosters is assumed and declared as having been “proven” based on the original trials.

Talk about a circular argument! It’s just assumptions piled upon assumptions. Yet, based on the antibody response in eight mice alone, the Biden administration has now ordered 171 million doses of the two boosters.

Let’s not forget that the mice actually did get infected with Omicron,8 although we don’t know to what degree, since they haven’t released the data. For all we know, the mice may have had a good antibody response, got sick and then dropped dead.

What’s more, the monovalent Pfizer booster authorized for children aged 5 to 11, back in May 2022, was based on the antibody levels of just 67 children.9 So, when the FDA claims the original human trials were exhaustive and have conclusively proven the shots are both safe and effective, they’re flat out lying.

In addition to apparent fraud being committed, and the fact that they eliminated the placebo groups midway, those human trials won’t even be finalized for another two years or so, as all clinical trials require follow-up.

All we have are preliminary analyses, and FOIA released documents clearly show Pfizer has been less than transparent about adverse effects, as they mislabeled and dismissed almost all of them.

A reanalysis10 of data from the Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccine trials found that, combined, Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 jabs were actually associated with a risk increase of serious adverse events of special interest of 12.5 per 10,000 vaccinated. Meanwhile, the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization was only 2.3 per 10,000 participants for Pfizer and 6.4 per 10,000 for Moderna. So, again, the risk-benefit is crazy lopsided AGAINST the shots.

Aside from the risk of immediate adverse effects of these experimental gene transfer injections, there’s also the issue of immune destruction through repeat exposure. A number of scientists have warned that repeated injections appear to be breaking down people’s immune systems. As noted by independent journalist Rav Avora:11

“The European Medicines Agency has warned12 against the potential adverse immunological effects of repeated boosting every four months.

As Dr. Marty Makary from Johns Hopkins has noted,13 recent research shows a ‘reduced immune response against the Omicron strain among people previously infected who then received three COVID vaccine doses compared to a control group that previously had COVID and did not have multiple shots.’

It is just impossible to overstate the unconditional absurdity of the FDA and CDC decision. Not only is the booster merely available to the public … but it is recommended by the state for everyone, including children and teenagers — those with least to gain and most to lose.”

Indeed, the population most likely to be mandated to take a bivalent booster are students, and according to a recent risk-benefit analysis,14 which assessed the impact of booster mandates for university students, between 22,000 and 30,000 previously uninfected students (aged 18 to 29) must be boosted to prevent a single COVID-19 hospitalization.

“For each COVID-related hospitalization prevented, a third booster will cause 18 to 98 serious adverse events.”

And, for each COVID-related hospitalization prevented, the booster will cause 18 to 98 serious adverse events, including 1.7 to 3 “booster-associated myocarditis cases in males,” plus another 1,373 to 3,234 cases of “grade ≥3 reactogenicity which interferes with daily activities.”

In short, mandating a third COVID shot for university students will result in a net expected harm of massive proportions, which is completely unethical. Anyone who cannot compute that 18 to 98 serious injuries plus another 3,000+ injuries that are bad enough to interfere with daily living is WORSE than one COVID hospitalization really should not be in a public health position. They belong in a remedial first-grade math class.

Sadly, a number of top officials within the FDA, CDC and the National Institutes of Health reportedly have serious concerns about the direction we’re going in, yet are too afraid to speak out or push back, so the death toll keeps mounting. In a July 15, 2022, Substack article, Makary and Dr. Tracy Beth Hoeg shared the following:15

“The calls and text messages are relentless. On the other end are doctors and scientists at the top levels of the NIH, FDA and CDC. They are variously frustrated, exasperated and alarmed about the direction of the agencies to which they have devoted their careers.

‘It’s like a horror movie I’m being forced to watch and I can’t close my eyes,’ one senior FDA official lamented. ‘People are getting bad advice and we can’t say anything.’

That particular FDA doctor was referring to two recent developments inside the agency. First, how, with no solid clinical data, the agency authorized COVID vaccines for infants and toddlers, including those who already had COVID. And second, the fact that just months before, the FDA bypassed their external experts to authorize booster shots for young children …

At the NIH, doctors and scientists complain to us about low morale and lower staffing: The NIH’s Vaccine Research Center has had many of its senior scientists leave over the last year, including the director, deputy director and chief medical officer. ‘They have no leadership right now …’ one NIH scientist told us …

Another CDC scientist told us: ‘I used to be proud to tell people I work at the CDC. Now I’m embarrassed.’ Why are they embarrassed? In short, bad science. The longer answer: that the heads of their agencies are using weak or flawed data to make critically important public health decisions … And that they have a myopic focus on one virus instead of overall health …

An official at the FDA put it this way: ‘I can’t tell you how many people at the FDA have told me, ‘I don’t like any of this, but I just need to make it to my retirement.’”

Even Dr. Paul Offit, one of the most prominent pro-vaccine propagandists in U.S. history and a member of the FDA’s VRBPAC, has the common sense to question the sanity of rolling out untested shots to millions of people. In late August 2022, just two days before the FDA authorized the two bivalent boosters, he told the Wall Street Journal:16

“I’m uncomfortable that we would move forward — that we would give millions or tens of millions of doses to people — based on mouse data.”

The FDA is also advertising the COVID shots — and making bizarre unscientific claims in those ads. Here are two recent COVID booster campaign messages tweeted out by the FDA:

“It’s time to install that update! #UpdateYourAntibodies with a new #COVID19 booster.”17 “Don’t be shocked! You can now #RechargeYourImmunity with an updated #COVID19 booster.”18

By law, the FDA should not engage in the advertising of drugs — historically, they’ve never even worked with drug companies to create ads19 — and the agency certainly should not put out false and misleading claims about drugs, as this is illegal. So, why are they doing both? As reported by Tablet magazine:20

“The continuation of unchecked conflicts of interest, and several recent authorizations for uses of new medical products that are in many ways unproven, demonstrate that the FDA is essentially unresponsive to public outrage, culminating in the bizarre spectacle of … promoting bivalent boosters on social media through unsubstantiated claims …

[A]cting not as a neutral regulator but actively advertising on behalf of pharmaceutical companies with government purchase contracts. The FDA’s disregard for its congressional mandate is not unique to this moment — it is a symptom of its decadeslong transformation into an agency captured by the corporations it is tasked with regulating.”

Tablet magazine also highlights the FDA’s now-consistent disregard for safety issues, even when data clearly point to problems. This includes data showing frequent boosters can weaken immune function, and the fact that Pfizer, in its pediatric trial, actually observed a higher rate of severe COVID in the vaccine group than the placebo group.

The FDA also allowed Pfizer to discount 365 symptomatic cases in the pediatric trial and only count 10 cases that occurred after the third dose. This is how they got to 80% efficacy. In reality, however, the efficacy was negative after doses 1 and 2. As noted by Tablet magazine:21

“In a vaccine meant to prevent illness for an age group that is already at extremely low risk, this data should have been a red flag for the FDA. Why, then, has the body charged with protecting Americans from inadequately tested products been so eager not just to authorize these products for emergency use, but to enthusiastically recommend them?”

Clearly, the fact that 75% of the FDA’s funding comes from the drug industry is one factor that contributes to this corruption. Another is the revolving door between the agency and industry, with officials passing back and forth between the two.

A third factor is the financial conflicts of interest of individual officials. Tablet magazine reviews several examples of VRBPAC members receiving hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars from drug companies, be it in the form of research grants, speakers’ fees or consulting fees.

In closing, at least three new studies demonstrate the insanity of continuing down the path of boosters:

  1. Japanese researchers have found in vitro evidence of antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) following Moderna’s mRNA injection.22 23

  2. A preprint study24 posted on bioRxiv in mid-September 2022 found Omicron sublineage BA.2.75.2 is exceptionally good at escaping neutralizing antibodies.

    On average, this sublineage was neutralized fivefold less potently than BA.5, making it the most resistant variant to date. According to the authors, “These data raise concerns that BA.2.75.2 may effectively evade humoral immunity in the population.”

  3. Another September preprint25 26 27 by Chinese researchers detail how and why SARS-CoV-2 variants are outracing vaccination efforts, and the role played by original antigenic sin.

    In addition to BA.2.75.2, other variants with impressive immune evading capabilities include BR.1, BJ.1, and BQ.1.1. According to the authors,28 many of the variants now emerging have mutations converging in particular “hotspots” on the receptor binding domain (RBD).

    They suspect this convergent evolution is linked to humoral immune imprinting, in other words, the phenomenon of original antigenic sin,29 the end result of which is reduced immunity and an increased risk of symptomatic infection.

    If you’re up for some, at times, complex scientific jargon, check out coauthor Yunlong Richard Cao’s Twitter thread in which he does his best to lay out the findings. Cao explains the convergent RBD evolution as follows:

    “Due to immune imprinting, BA.5 breakthrough infection caused significant reductions of nAb [neutralizing antibody] epitope diversity and increased proportion of non-neutralizing mAbs [monoclonal antibodies], which in turn concentrated immune pressure and promoted the convergent RBD evolution.”

    The take-home message here is that this convergent RBD evolution — which is making new variants increasingly capable of evading neutralizing antibodies — is the result of a narrow antibody response.

    It’s a byproduct of “vaccinating” the world during an active outbreak. The end result is that both natural immunity and the COVID jabs are rendered more or less null and void. If that’s not reason enough to quit this booster madness, I don’t know what is.

The Coming Water Wars

  • The climate crisis is blamed on human activities, but they may not be the activities you’re thinking of, like driving cars but, rather, activities that are much more nefarious, like the intentional creation of a water crisis in order to gain totalitarian control

  • The U.S. military has a history of using weather modification practices in warfare, including during the Vietnam War

  • China recently made headlines for using seed clouds to induce rainfall over the Yangtze River, and it also used cloud seeding to ensure dry weather during the 2008 Beijing Olympics

  • In 2018, researchers from the European Commission’s Joint Research Center suggested that competition over limited water resources — or “hydro-political issues” — would be the driver of future wars

  • One of the most important preparations you can make is to secure a supply of potable water, such as a large cistern to collect rainwater

Historic droughts and threats of water shortages are occurring around the world, as media reports highlight rivers — such as the Loire, Po and Danube in Europe — reaching historic lows.1 In China, a double threat of heat and lack of rainfall has led portions of the Yangtze river basin to go dry, affecting not only crops but also the drinking water supplies of people and livestock.2

In the U.S., the Colorado River is at “critical levels,” leading officials from the U.S. Interior Department to state that water use in the basin must be reduced “in order to avoid catastrophic collapse of the Colorado River System and a future of uncertainty and conflict.”3 Toward that end, Washington officials have now stepped in, announcing that certain water supplies to U.S. states and Mexico would be cut.4

Much of the crisis is blamed on human activities, but as James Corbett covers in “The Corbett Report,” they may not be the activities you’re thinking of, like driving cars but, rather, activities that are much more nefarious, like the intentional creation of a water crisis in order to gain totalitarian control.5

While geoengineering, including spraying sulfate aerosols into the Earth’s stratosphere in order to modify climate,6 is often still talked about as though it’s straight from a science fiction movie, weather modification techniques have been used for military purposes for some time.

Sometimes referred to as weather warfare, the notion that humans could control Mother Nature became a reality in 1946, when scientists working with the General Electric Research Laboratory released dry ice into clouds, creating the first human-made snowstorm.7 As noted by Smithsonian Magazine:8

“After the experiments of G.E.’s Research Laboratory, there was a feeling that humanity might finally be able to control one of the greatest variables of life on earth. And, as Cold War tensions heightened, weather control was seen by the United States as a potential weapon that could be even more devastating than nuclear warfare …

In August of 1953 the United States formed the President’s Advisory Committee on Weather Control. Its stated purpose was to determine the effectiveness of weather modification procedures and the extent to which the government should engage in such activities.”

It wasn’t long after that the U.S. military began to use weather modification practices in warfare, including during the Vietnam War. Corbett noted:9

“Unsurprisingly, the idea was put to active military use almost immediately. From 1967 to 1972, the US Air Force ran Operation Popeye, a highly classified rainmaking program deployed in Southeast Asia ‘in an attempt to slow the movement of North Vietnamese troops and supplies through the Ho Chi Minh trail network.’

The program was so classified that even President Nixon’s Defense Secretary, Melvin Laird, didn’t know of its existence until it was reported in the press. So, who went over the Secretary of Defense’s head to authorize and coordinate a scheme to weaponize the weather? Why, Henry Kissinger, of course.

… Don’t worry, though. The revelation of the program caused such international outrage that the UN introduced a convention in 1977 prohibiting the use of environmental modification technology in warfare. The US ratified that convention in 1980, so no one has ever tried to modify the weather for warfare again. (Would world leaders ever lie to the public about something like that?)”

While climatic warfare was supposed to have been phased out in 1980, weather modification — for various purposes — has been picking up steam around the globe. More than 50 countries worldwide already participate in one type of weather modification known as cloud seeding.10

The prospect of using cloud seeding to increase rainfall is its most popular usage. In the U.S., about $15 million is spent on cloud-seeding projects annually, which pales in comparison to the $100 million a year spent in China. Still, in the U.S. cloud seeding has grown by one-third in the last 10 years.11

There are a number of different ways that cloud seeding can work, but typically dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide) pellets or silver iodide are applied to certain clouds to modify their output. Seeding agents may be applied to clouds from the ground but, most often, aircraft are used to apply the materials to the clouds. This occurs either by releasing the seeding agent below the cloud into its updrafts or by dropping the seeds directly into the upper regions of the clouds.12

China recently made headlines for using seed clouds to induce rainfall over the Yangtze River, and it also used cloud seeding to ensure dry weather during the 2008 Beijing Olympics.13 In Wyoming, the Wyoming Weather Modification Pilot Program conducted a randomized cloud-seeding program, which found the seeding increased snowfall by 5% to 15% under ideal seeding conditions.14

In North Dakota, meanwhile, the North Dakota Cloud Modification Project reported that cloud seeding produces an estimated 5% to 10% additional rainfall annually in the project area while reducing crop hail losses by 45%. As for costs, they say it only costs 16 cents per acre to enhance rain and suppress hail.15

As you can imagine, aside from the benefits of protecting water supplies or the military applications, there are many people who have their hand in the pot when it comes to benefiting from weather modification. Corbett explained:16

“So many events in the course of human activity are predicated on short-term weather and long-term climate phenomena that the ability to determine (or even influence) either could be extremely valuable. Insurance companies, for example, stand to lose billions (and reconstruction-related industries stand to make those same billions) every time a strong storm makes landfall in populated areas.

So it should not be surprising that a market has evolved for ‘weather derivatives,’ effectively allowing large financial institutions to make money gambling on the weather. And it should also come as no surprise that this market was largely pioneered by that infamous globalist-connected insider corporation, Enron.”

The practice is not without controversy, however. Potential consequences of cloud seeding include environmental impacts downwind of target areas, which may have a negative impact on others — including those across political boundaries.17 Could it be, also, that global elites have already harnessed this technology for their own purposes of population-level control? Corbett thinks so:18

“Yes, of course the establishment press is lying to its readers yet again, keeping them in the dark about a well-established technology so their governmental masters can plausibly deny that any large-scale climate events are manmade. Large-scale climate events like, say, a hemisphere-wide drought.

Instead, they can safely blame the current water shortages on the globalist bogeyman … It’s all just a coincidence that we’re plunging into an age of water shortages, droughts, famine and pestilence, guys. And the answer to this crisis is more weather modification!”

In 2018, researchers from the European Commission’s Joint Research Center suggested that competition over limited water resources — or “hydro-political issues” — would be the driver of future wars.19

“Although water issues alone have not been the sole trigger for warfare in the past, tensions over freshwater management and use represent one of the main concerns in political relations between riparian states and may exacerbate existing tensions, increase regional instability and social unrest,” they wrote in Global Environmental Change.20

“The wars of the future,” the New York Post wrote, “will be fought over water not oil.”21 Indeed, other than air, there is no resource as precious as water, and if it becomes scarce, those who control it will retain ultimate power. This, Corbett believes, is part of the master plan:22

“But now let’s entertain for a moment this harebrained, cockamamie, tinfoil wing nut idea that perhaps — just perhaps — the global climactic events taking place at the moment (including the widespread water shortages taking place across the world) are not the result of your carbon footprint.

What if — and I know I’m out on a limb here — they were being deliberately engineered with the types of weather modification technology that we know the US military and other countries around the world have been actively studying for at least 80 years now? What would that mean?

Well, it would certainly create a convenient case for the UN and other would-be world controllers to step in and start restricting productive human activity in the name of saving us from the weather gods. Climate lockdowns to save the day! … Sound farfetched?

Well, as even mainstream commentators are starting to note, the water supply crisis is not simply happening by chance. It is the result of carefully planned government actions, inactions and restrictions.

The answer is obvious: the water shortage is a crisis by design, like the food crisis and the various geopolitical crises and the economic crisis … and it’s designed to justify more government control over you and your life and, in the end, to corral you into tightly controlled urban centers where your access to the necessities of life can be turned off.”

One of the most important preparations you can make is to secure a supply of potable water, as you can survive far longer without food than you can without water. An ideal system to consider, if you have a garden, is to install a large cistern to collect rainwater.

Since I have a full acre of land that I grow food on, I have a 5,000-gallon cistern that collects rainwater from the gutters on my roof. This serves to augment my irrigation system but is also a large emergency source of water. Another strategy is to install a series of connected rain barrels to your gutters.

A system like this can provide you with a source of water indefinitely, provide there isn’t a long-term drought. Just be sure to keep the water clean, using a combination of filters — a leaf diverter as well as a screen on the inlet going into the barrel — and treatment as follows:23

  • Treat the water with bleach once a month. This will help prevent algae growth. All you need is 1/4 teaspoon per gallon of water, or 2 to 4 tablespoons for a 55-gallon barrel. Beneficial microbes can also be used in lieu of bleach. One such product is Nutri-Life BAM24

  • Test the pH of your water once a month using a standard pH test strip. If the water is neutral or alkaline (aka “hard” water), add baking soda to bring back its acidity. For a 55-gallon barrel, you typically only need a couple of tablespoons to correct the pH balance. Vinegar is another option for lowering the pH

The best-case scenario is that you install such a system and don’t need it. In that case, you can still use the water for your garden. But in the worst-case scenario, in which war erupts over water rights and those in power attempt to limit or, worse, eliminate, your supply, you’ll have a backup ready.

Antibiotics Linked to Fatal Heart Condition

  • Fluoroquinolones, long associated with Achilles tendonitis and rupture, have been demonstrated to increase your risk of aortic dissection (a tear in the wall of the major artery, allowing blood to flow between the layers) or aortic rupture, which can lead to death

  • Even though “black-box” warnings are now attached to them, fluoroquinolones are still often prescribed for upper respiratory infections or urinary tract infections

  • Antibiotic use can trigger a permanent change in your gut microbiome, which accounts for nearly 80% of your immune system function, so it is important to use antibiotics only when absolutely necessary

  • You may reduce your risk of bacterial and viral infections by supporting your immune system through simple lifestyle measures, such as quality sleep, fermented foods, regular exercise and optimizing your vitamin D level

Research shows your body’s microbiome has nearly 39 trillion bacteria. During early years, your family, dietary intake and environmental exposure contribute to the variety in your microbiome, influencing your lifelong health. Everyday activities such as brushing your teeth, eating, kissing someone or handling a family pet also affect your microbiome.

This composition may be as distinct to you as a fingerprint and plays an enormous role in disease prevention, and influences the function of your skin, lungs, breast and liver. Harmful bacteria can trigger illness and disease, which is frequently treated with antibiotics. Of the 10 most commonly prescribed, two are from the antibiotic class of fluoroquinolones.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first added a boxed warning to fluoroquinolones in 2008, due to the increased risk for tendinitis and tendon rupture. Boxed warnings, also referred to as black box warnings, appear on prescription drug labels designed to call attention to serious or life-threatening risks.

An additional warning was added in 2011 for those suffering from myasthenia gravis, and updates were included in 2013 describing irreversible peripheral neuropathy. In 2018, the FDA warned fluoroquinolone antibiotics may increase the occurrence of ruptures or tears in the aorta. And, in January 2022, the FDA decided:

“We have determined that fluoroquinolones should be reserved for use in patients with no other treatment options for acute bacterial sinusitis, or ABS, acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis (ABECB), and uncomplicated UTI because the risks generally outweighs the benefits.

For some serious bacterial infections the benefits of fluoroquinolones outweigh the risks, and it is appropriate for them to remain available as a therapeutic option.”

Yet, despite these warnings, researchers found in April 2022 that fluoroquinolones are still among the most-prescribed antibiotics around the world. They concluded that some health care workers may have an “unsatisfactory knowledge” of the safety profiles and risks of these drugs, and that more education on adverse reactions to fluoroquinolones may be needed.

The aorta is the main artery in your body supplying oxygenated blood to your circulatory system. The artery comes from the left side of your heart and runs down the front of your backbone. The review by the FDA found fluoroquinolone antibiotics increase the risk of tears in the aorta, also called aortic dissections, or ruptures of an aortic aneurysm, leading to excessive bleeding and death.

The findings occurred when antibiotics were given by mouth or through an injection. This led the FDA to caution against the use of fluoroquinolone antibiotics in those at risk, unless there are no other treatment options available.

Specifically, the antibiotic should not be used in those who are at risk for, or have a current, aortic aneurysm, such as those suffering peripheral atherosclerotic vascular disease, hypertension and specific genetic conditions such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome or Marfan syndrome.

Findings were pulled from four published observational studies, which taken together demonstrated a consistent association between aortic dissection or rupture and fluoroquinolone use. The underlying mechanism could not be determined from those studies.

Some of the commonly used fluoroquinolones include ciprofloxacin (Cipro), levofloxacin (Levaquin), gemifloxacin (Factive) and moxifloxacin (Avelox). These are prescribed to treat upper respiratory and urinary tract infections. In a statement, the FDA warns:

“Fluoroquinolones should not be used in patients at increased risk unless there are no other treatment options available.

Health care professionals should avoid prescribing fluoroquinolone antibiotics to patients who have an aortic aneurysm or are at risk for an aortic aneurysm, such as patients with peripheral atherosclerotic vascular diseases, hypertension, certain genetic conditions such as Marfan syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and elderly patients.”

Viruses commonly trigger upper respiratory infections (URIs) with symptoms of runny nose, cough, low grade fever, sore throat and difficulty sleeping. URIs represent the most common acute illness in the outpatient setting, often related to the common cold, which is typically a mild, self-limited inflammation of the mucous membranes in the airways.

Bacterial illness may follow a viral illness as a secondary infection, and commonly includes symptoms persisting longer than 14 days with a fever higher than one might typically expect from a virus. Oftentimes, the fever gets worse a few days into the illness rather than improving.

Unfortunately, one of the more common reasons fluoroquinolones are prescribed is for upper respiratory infections, ordinarily triggered by a virus. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the highest number of community antibiotic prescriptions are written in the southeastern states.

Fluoroquinolones ranked No. 4 in the highest number of prescriptions written per 1,000 people in the CDC’s outpatient antibiotic prescription index in 2016. Because providers were still opting for fluroquinolones more than they should for respiratory infections such as pneumonia, the CDC reported in 2021 that an expert panel had recommended the use of these drugs for this purpose be lowered by 90%.

Bacterial and viral infections are dissimilar in important respects related to the organism’s structure and the way they respond to medications. Although both are too small to be seen with the naked eye, the largest virus is actually smaller than the smallest bacteria.16 Unlike the more complex bacteria, viruses cannot survive without a host and only reproduce by attaching themselves to other cells. Also, unlike bacteria, most viruses are specific in the cells they attack.

The differences in the structure and complexity of the organism have an impact on the type of medication that may be effective against it. Viral infections are not affected by antibiotics such as fluoroquinolones. In fact, using antibiotics for viral infections only contributes to the rising number of antibiotic-resistant infections.

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics have been associated with Achilles tendon ruptures and damage for over a decade. Other severe adverse events, such as retinal detachments as well as aortic aneurysms, may also be associated with other systems requiring collagen formation. This may also explain, at least in part, how the drug increases your risk of aortic rupture or dissection, as collagen lines your arteries and veins to allow for stretch as the heart pumps blood.

Subsequently, in July 2022 the FDA mandated another warning, “alerting physicians to the increased risk of tendonitis and tendon rupture associated with their use.” According to Dr. Renata Albrecht, who heads the FDA’s Division of Special Pathogen and Transplant Products, “Achilles’ ruptures associated with fluoroquinolones are three to four times more frequent than ruptures among people not taking these drugs.

So, if you are taking these antibiotics, you should seek immediate medical care if you experience soreness or inflammation in muscles or tendons. You should also not exercise while your joints are affected.

The drugs are also powerful iron chelating agents that may trigger epigenetic changes through the loss of agents requiring iron as a cofactor. As noted in one study, this may also explain the classic renal toxicity associated with the antibiotics:

“At sub-millimolar concentrations, these antibiotics inhibited jumonji domain histone demethylases, TET DNA demethylases and collagen prolyl 4-hydroxylases, leading to accumulation of methylated histones and DNA and inhibition of proline hydroxylation in collagen, respectively. These effects may explain fluoroquinolone-induced nephrotoxicity and tendinopathy.”

A recent study has linked the use of fluoroquinolones to the rising number of children and adults affected by kidney stones. The odds of stones increased 1.5 times with the use of fluoroquinolones and exposure within 3 to 12 months was associated with greater risk. It appeared children and adolescents were particularly susceptible.

Reactions can be bodywide, impacting your central nervous system and musculoskeletal, visual and renal systems, sometimes simultaneously. Among the serious reactions reported are:

  • Memory impairment

  • Delirium

  • Agitation

  • Disorientation

  • Retinal detachment

  • Hearing loss and/or tinnitus

  • Disturbance in attention

  • Kidney stones

  • Kidney failure

  • Hypoglycemia leading to coma

  • Aortic rupture or dissection

  • Tendon rupture or dissection

Researchers recommend further study to understand the pathogenesis caused by antibiotics in order to treat antibiotic-associated diseases through the mitigation of the intestinal environment — restoring it to its original state.

Further research has demonstrated an imbalance in gut microbiome caused by antibiotics can negatively affect health in a number of ways and for long periods of time. If your physician prescribes one of these dangerous antibiotics, ask to use another one. It would be unusual a fluoroquinolone would be the only antibiotic that could be used to treat your infection.

Remember, these dangerous antibiotics should be used as a last resort only. If it is necessary, be sure to carefully read the package insert and all the warnings, and seek medical attention the moment you notice a side effect.

The late Dr. David Flockhart, who served as professor of medicine and chief of clinical pharmacology at Indiana University School of Medicine, and who before his death was considered one of the leading experts in fluoroquinolone side effects, said in 2012 that “as many as one-third of patients taking a fluoroquinolone will experience some sort of psychiatric side effect.”

But the thing is, Flockhart had tried to call attention to these drugs over 10 years earlier, in 2001, when he decried Ciprio specifically, as he tried to stress just how dangerous fluoroquinolones are:

“Cipro is basically a big gun whose benefits outweigh its risks in certain circumstances. But the bigger the gun you use, the more damage you can expect as collateral.”

The health of your gut microbiome is a game changer. It has become increasingly apparent in recent years that the composition of your gut microbiome plays an enormous role in your health and disease prevention. Cancer and many other health conditions have been traced back to the influence of gut microbes, including obesity, depression, Parkinson’s and allergies, just to name a few.

Since your gut is the main residence of your immune system,32 disrupting your gut microbiome automatically disrupt your immune function, which can have far-reaching consequences. One way antibiotics can promote disease is by creating an oxygen-rich environment in your intestines, favoring the growth of pathogenic bacteria.

Beneficial microbes grow in an anaerobic (no oxygen) environment, while pathogenic bacteria need oxygen to survive.33 Data suggest even one course of antibiotics can negatively alter your microbiome for up to one year, which is why it’s crucial to use antibiotics only when it is absolutely necessary.

However, Dr. Martin Blaser with the Langone Medical Center at New York University argues the impact of antibiotics on gut bacteria may be permanent. In an editorial in Nature he writes:

“Early evidence from my lab and others hint that, sometimes, our friendly flora never fully recover. These long-term changes to the beneficial bacteria within people’s bodies may even increase our susceptibility to infections and disease.

Overuse of antibiotics could be fueling the dramatic increase in conditions such as obesity, Type 1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies and asthma, which have more than doubled in many populations.”

The stronger your immune system, the less chance any microbe will have of gaining a foothold in your body. Below are some basic strategies for supporting your immune system and preventing illness.

  • Optimize your diet — Avoid foods that tax your immune system, such as trans fats, fried foods, processed foods, sugars and grains. Seek to reduce your net carbohydrate (sugar, grains, fructose) and protein intake, replacing them with high-quality healthy fats.

  • Balance your gut flora — One of the best ways to support your gut is by incorporating naturally fermented foods into your diet, working up to 4 to 6 ounces per day. You may take a high-quality probiotic supplement, but fermented foods tend to offer the greatest benefit.

  • Exercise regularly — Exercise improves the circulation of immune cells in your blood, creating a more efficient system at locating and eliminating pathogens in your body. Make sure your fitness plan incorporates weight training, high-intensity exercises, stretching and core work.

  • Get plenty of restorative sleep — Research shows sleep deprivation has the same effect on your immune system as physical stress or disease, which is why you may feel ill after a sleepless night.

  • Reduce stress — High levels of stress hormones can diminish your immunity, so be sure you’re implementing some sort of stress management. Meditation, prayer, yoga and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) are all excellent strategies for managing stress, but you’ll have to find what works best for you.

  • Optimize vitamin D levels — Studies show inadequate vitamin D can increase your risk for MRSA and other infections. Your best source of vitamin D is through sensible sun exposure. Monitor your vitamin D level to confirm they’re in a therapeutic range of 60 to 80 ng/mL. If you can’t get UV exposure, consider taking an oral vitamin D3 supplement, in conjunction with magnesium and vitamin K2 (MK-7).

In addition to the lifestyle measures listed above, there are natural agents that are naturally antibacterial, including the following:

  • Vitamin C — Vitamin C’s role in preventing and treating infectious disease is well established. Intravenous vitamin C is an option, but if you don’t have access to a practitioner who can administer it, liposomal vitamin C is the most potent oral form. For more information on vitamin C, listen to my interview with Dr. Ronald Hunninghake (hyperlinked above), an internationally recognized vitamin C expert.

  • Garlic — Garlic is a powerful antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal. It can stimulate your immune system, help wounds heal and kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria. For highest potency, the garlic should be eaten fresh and raw (chopped or smashed.)

  • Olive leaf extract — In vitro studies show olive leaf extract is effective against Klebsiella, a gram-negative bacteria, inhibiting its replication, in addition to being toxic to other pathogenic microbes.

  • Manuka honey — Manuka honey, made from the flowers and pollen of the Manuka bush, has been shown to be more effective than antibiotics in the treatment of serious, hard-to-heal skin infections. Clinical trials have found Manuka honey can effectively eradicate more than 250 clinical strains of bacteria, including resistant varieties such as MRSA.

  • Tea tree oil — Tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic proven to kill many bacterial strains.

  • Colloidal silver — Colloidal silver has been regarded as an effective natural antibiotic for centuries, and recent research shows it can even help eradicate antibiotic-resistant pathogens. If you are interested in this treatment, make sure you read the latest guidelines for safe usage of colloidal silver as there are risks with using it improperly.
