Barr’s Call to the Scottish Templars


By Anna Von Reitz

The Stupid People among us are making jokes about United States Attorney General William Barr’s sudden appearance playing the bagpipes.

What they don’t know is that that is a worldwide signal to the Scottish Templars to go to war and aid him in his duty, whatever that duty is.

The wheels of a massive and ancient Brotherhood are now turning and will turn until God or another Grandmaster cancels “The Calling”. 

Whether it’s good or bad, I will leave that to all of you to determine in the days and weeks to come. 

Considering that it was a Scottish Templar corporation doing business as “The United States of America, Inc.” that began all this corruption and criminality on our shores, it doesn’t look good that the same basic organization– three generations removed– is now mobilizing.

That, together with the resurgence of US Navy influence in military affairs, indicates a British Empire impetus to do something — but against who and what — is not yet clear. 

With the eyes of the entire world now focused upon them— and rather jaundiced eyes, too– they need to be called to righteous action instead of the usual guile that has made Perfidious Albion famous since 1302.

Professional Liars and Actors


By Anna Von Reitz

There was a day in my childhood when I realized that adults lie. 

This was a staggering revelation to me at age five. 

My own Mother had lied to me about Santa Claus. 

Now, to be sure, she didn’t make a habit of lying to me or to anyone else, but she did make an exception about Santa Claus — a lapse that I never fully forgave her for. 

It isn’t that I cared that much about fat red elves in ridiculous costumes fitting down chimneys and leaving presents under dead trees.  All that struck me as bizarre then and still does now.  No, it was the fact that my Mother, an adult, lied to me.  She betrayed my trust in her word. 

I suppose it was all her loss and my gain, because I never took anyone or anything at face value again.  Any blind trust in authority figures died that day.  If my Mother could lie, so could the President.

So, when I heard that the State of Alaska Trooper’s Academy in Sitka, Alaska, was teaching State of Alaska Troopers how to lie — literally, requiring course work in the subject — I didn’t bat an eyelash.

Instead, I marked the names and faces of those responsible for this addition to the curriculum as criminals. 

Only criminals depend on lies and deceit. 

Honest men, including honest policemen, tell the truth and seek the truth whatever comes, but criminals, liars, and thugs — now that’s a different thing.

When policemen are being trained to lie, we should all know what to think and what to expect from them. 

They are being “told” by their Higher Ups that this is okay, that this is even expected of them, and they may even believe the sad old excuse that its a “matter of national security” — though anyone dumb enough to be a dishonest policeman in the first place probably doesn’t have the brains to ask — which nation?  What kind of security?

And that’s another thing I found out at the same time.  Guys were being turned away from the Trooper Academy if their IQ was too high.  Anyone above 110 could be turned down. 

So, we have policemen with loaded guns out there making split second decisions about law and danger and lives and the public good, who can barely read, who are being taught to lie, who are misdirected—- and scared. 

As another part of their New Curriculum they are being taught that there are all sorts of dangerous organized “political extremists” including [by definition] non-existent “sovereign citizens” out to get them, on top of gangs, bank robbers, drug addicts, and plain old drunks and murderers.

Doesn’t that sound like a Perfect Storm?  Dishonest police of limited intelligence, armed to the teeth, and scared silly. 

The Public is being harmed by being endangered instead of protected, and the Police who are being hung out to dry, are in no better position. 

All this rot is coming from the CIA and NSA and DHS and FBI and BATF and DARPA and DIA and all the other quasi-government “Security Services” that are supposed to be keeping us safe.  

They are all being trained the same way and fed the same Kool-Aid, and the leaders past and present of these organizations are out there proudly admitting to it, too. Ex-CIA/NSA Chief Michael Hayden had a whole PBS Special talking about “Post Truth America”.  

He sat there fat and plump as a pimple on national television, happy as a Pig in his own Slop, describing how Lies are the New Reality.

Actually, Michael, no, they aren’t.  Lies are nothing new. And they are certainly not reality. They are just the same Old Lies coming from the same Old Place: The Father of All Lies. 

The only hard part is that you and your cohorts are on the public payroll spreading this garbage and some people never learned the truth about Santa Claus. 

They actually follow your orders.  They actually look up to you and trust you and believe you —-and you, well, you are nothing but a lying immoral sack of used cottage cheese.

That’s the Truth about Michael Hayden, and unfortunately, also about John Bolton and Mike Pompeo. 

They are all on the record saying that it is smart and good to lie, condoning it in public, and they are all stupid enough to think that that is fine and dandy, because they have been trained by other Liars and Actors who came before them— FDR, Winston Churchill, et alia.  

That’s how they keep alive.  That’s how they get ahead.  They lie their rumps off and think it’s smart — and that is why dealing with them is like dealing with Evil Children involved in some bizarre game. 

Their parents never gave them a better moral compass, their teachers and heroes encouraged them in this Bad Behavior, and in the end, you have these Rotten Apples spoiling and misdirecting every level of every kind of police and military force and occupying positions of power in the government and the military.

If that doesn’t make your blood boil and run cold at the same time, it should.

These men are self-admitted Liars. We have no reason to believe them about anything at all, no matter what they say.  We have no reason to trust them and no reason to trust anyone they have trained, because anyone worth keeping in these positions of Public Trust, would leave.

Just like David Hackworth— any decent honest man faced with such “leadership” would just up and go rabbit farming in Australia.

So there again we are dis-served.  Not only are we left with a bunch of pathetic dishonest Liars in charge, but because of them no decent man or better leadership can arise from the ranks and replace them and their cankerous version of reality. 

When you talk about cleaning out Washington, DC, think mop and bucket. Think soap and water.

Think of all the kids you detested in school — the filthy little liars and tattle-tales, the glib, empty smiles gossiping behind your back, all the gutless wonders egging other people on while they, the Perps, skulked around in the background, the schemers constantly stirring the pot and trying to wrangle some advantage for themselves at everyone else’s expense — that’s what you’ve got running this country. 

It isn’t going to change until these Liars get fired, not eligible for rehire, and all their proteges and hand-picked sycophants, too.  Mop and bucket.  Root, stem, and leaf.

And as for the idea that we need Liars and Con Men and Criminals in charge of our police and our military, because that’s what other countries have going on —- no, that’s no excuse and no advantage, either. 

Here in Alaska we have a famous bar and above the bar hangs a sign: “Welcome to Chilkoot Charlie’s! We cheat the other guy and pass the savings on to you!”  

Yup. Uh-huh. Yeah, sure, you betcha.

That’s the kind of help Mr. Trump is relying on to help drain the swamp.

And if you don’t believe it,  listen to these men in their own words and read for yourselves what they’ve said.  This one is from G. Edward Griffin:

Don’t fall asleep with the TV on

If you have a habit of falling asleep with the TV on, it could be playing a role in your ability to maintain a healthy weight. The link between sleep and obesity is strong, with those who sleep fewer hours having an increased risk of obesity.1

However, in recent research published in JAMA Internal Medicine, it wasn’t sleep duration and quality that appeared to influence weight gain and obesity, but rather exposure to artificial light that was the problem.2

You needn’t have significant light exposure to potentially affect your weight, either. In the study, the weight gain association was strongest for sleeping with a light or the television on in the room.

Exposure to artificial light at night increases obesity risk

The study involved a cohort of 43,722 women, between the ages of 35 and 74, who were not shift workers, daytime sleepers or pregnant at the beginning of the study.

Compared with women who had no exposure to artificial light at night, sleeping with a television or light on in the room was associated with a greater risk of gaining about 11 pounds (5 kilograms) or more, a body mass index increase of 10% or more, incident overweight and incident obesity over the course of the follow-up period.

“Exposure to artificial light at night while sleeping appears to be associated with increased weight, which suggests that artificial light exposure at night should be addressed in obesity prevention discussions,” the researchers noted.3

As noted, there were differences in weight gain depending on the type of light exposure. While sleeping with a small nightlight was not associated with weight gain, sleeping in a room with light coming from outside the room was associated with a modest weight increase. However, women who slept with a light or television on were 17% more likely to have gained about 11 pounds or more.

Study co-author Chandra Jackson, Ph.D., head of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Social and Environmental Determinants of Health Equity Group, explained that the study could have implications for people living in urban areas, where source of artificial light like streetlights and neon signs could interfere with the sleep hormone melatonin.

“Humans are genetically adapted to a natural environment consisting of sunlight during the day and darkness at night,” she said. “Exposure to artificial light at night may alter hormones and other biological processes in ways that raise the risk of health conditions like obesity.”4

Why light exposure at night is dangerous

Exposure to light at night, even if it’s dim, leads to disruptions in natural light and dark cycles that can have far-reaching effects on health.5 In a study by researchers at Ohio State university, light exposure at night was even linked to disruptions in immune and endocrine function.

The study involved hamsters, which normally sleep during the day. For nine weeks, one group was exposed to dim light at night while a control group was exposed to typical light during the day and darkness at night. Dim light at night not only led to increased body mass in the hamsters but also affected the hamsters’ offspring.

Although the offspring were raised in normal lighting conditions, with light during the day and darkness at night, parental history of light exposure prior to conception led to offspring with impaired immune response and decreased endocrine activity.

These health conditions were passed down through either parent’s genetic material, meaning it didn’t matter whether it was the mother or father that was exposed to dim light at night; the effect could be traced to either parent.

The impaired adaptive immune function noted in the hamster offspring illustrates a transgenerational effect of light at night, and while it didn’t influence DNA sequence, it did affect the DNA’s epigenetic expression.

“Together, these data suggest that exposure to dLAN [dim light at night] has transgenerational effects on endocrine-immune function that may be mediated by global alterations in the epigenetic landscape of immune tissues,” the researchers explained.6

Nighttime light exposure alters melatonin

Melatonin is an important hormone produced by your body’s pineal gland. One of its primary roles is regulating your body’s circadian rhythm. When it gets dark, your brain starts secreting melatonin (typically around 9 p.m. or 10 p.m.), which makes you sleepy.

Levels typically stay elevated for about 12 hours, then, as the sun rises, your pineal gland reduces your production, and the levels in your blood decrease until they’re hardly measurable at all. When your circadian rhythms are disrupted, such as from shift work, jet lag or nighttime light exposure, your body produces less melatonin.

“ … [R]oom light exerts a profound suppressive effect on melatonin levels and shortens the body’s internal representation of night duration,” researchers wrote in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. “Hence, chronically exposing oneself to electrical lighting in the late evening disrupts melatonin signaling and could therefore potentially impact sleep, thermoregulation, blood pressure and glucose homeostasis.”7

Aside from helping you sleep, melatonin may help prevent cancer, acting as a “full-service anticancer agent,” inhibiting the initiation, progression and metastasis of cancer.8 In one clinical trial, patients with glioblastoma were given either radiation and melatonin, or radiation alone. While six of the 14 patients receiving melatonin were alive one year later, only one of the 16 who received radiation alone was still alive.9

Another study found that melatonin reduced the growth of prostate cancer,10 and it also has a strong correlation with breast cancer. For instance, women who live in neighborhoods with large amounts of nighttime illumination are more likely to get breast cancer than those who live in areas where it’s dark at night.11

In fact, there was a 30% to 50% higher risk of breast cancer in the countries with the highest levels of nighttime light compared to the countries with the lowest nighttime light exposure.

Light at night may even affect your brain health

Another reason to pay careful attention to the light in your bedroom at night is to protect the health of your brain and even your mood. Twenty men slept in a laboratory under varying lighting conditions — no light exposure for two nights, then a dim light of five or 10 lux on the third night (for comparison, twilight is measured at 10.8 lux12).

After the second and third nights, the participants performed working memory tests while undergoing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The goal was to evaluate the effects of dim light exposure during sleep on functional brain activation during a working memory task the next day.13

When sleeping under 10 lux light conditions, there was decreased activation in the right inferior frontal gyrus, an area of your brain involved in response inhibition, attentional control and the detection of relevant cues when performing a task.

Exposure to 5-lux light had no statistically significant effect on the participants’ brain activity, which suggests that while your brain may tolerate the extremely dim 5 lux, at just 10 lux your cognition and working memory may suffer.

That being said, in a study on hamsters, exposure to even 5-lux light at night for four weeks led to symptoms of depression — and the symptoms disappeared after two weeks when the dim light at night was removed.14

Screens at night are a bad idea

Keep in mind that it’s not only the light from televisions that is problematic. Exposure to LED-backlit computer screens, tablets and cellphones at night also significantly suppresses melatonin production and feelings of sleepiness. When your brain “sees” blue light at night, the mixed message can add up to serious health issues.

 In 2011, for instance, researchers found that evening exposure to LED-backlit computer screens affect circadian physiology. Among 13 young men, exposure to five hours of an LED-lit screen at night significantly suppressed melatonin production along with sleepiness.15

The issue extends far beyond sleep, however. LEDs have virtually no beneficial infrared light and an excess of blue light that generates reactive oxygen species (ROS), harming your vision and possibly leading to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is the leading cause of blindness among the elderly in the U.S.

LED lights may also exacerbate mitochondrial dysfunction leading to chronic conditions ranging from metabolic disorders to cancer. If you view screens at night, it’s therefore essential to block your exposure to blue light while doing so. In the case of your computer, you can install a program to automatically lower the color temperature of your screen.

Many use f.lux to do this, but I prefer Iris software for this purpose. In addition, when watching TV or other screens, be sure to wear blue-blocking glasses after sundown, and turn them off well before you plan to go to sleep.

For optimal health, you need bright light during the day and darkness at night

Sleeping in a completely darkened room, without lights from alarm clocks, televisions or other sources will improve your sleep quality, help you maintain a healthy weight and improve your overall health. If you get up during the night to use the bathroom, it’s important to keep the lights off so you don’t shut off your production of melatonin.

Also, remove any light-producing alarm clocks and install blackout drapes to keep light from creeping in your windows. You can also wear an eye mask to keep out light pollution. Even before you go to bed, I recommend wearing blue light-blocking glasses after sunset to avoid blue-light exposure.

Equally important to sleeping in pitch darkness is getting sunshine in the morning. Melatonin is affected by your exposure to both light and dark. When it is light, production of melatonin naturally drops. Getting at least 15 minutes of sunlight in the morning hours helps to regulate the production of melatonin, dropping it to normal daytime levels, so you feel awake during the day and sleep better at night.

The good news is that if you’ve been sleeping with the TV on, this is a simple and straightforward fix that can significantly improve your health. If you have a tendency to fall asleep with the TV on, make a point to watch television somewhere other than your bed, then get up to go to sleep in your dark bedroom as soon as you feel tired.

Research confirms gut-brain connection in autism

Autism encompasses a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, communication and repetitive behaviors. Autism is a spectrum disorder, meaning the symptoms can be classified in terms of their position on a scale.

Autism Speaks1 points out there is not just one type of autism but many subtypes influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Each individual has a distinct set of strengths and challenges affecting how they learn, think and problem-solve.

In some cases, people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) require significant support, while others can live independently and hold high-functioning positions. Several factors are thought to influence the development of the condition.

It’s widely known that autistic children often suffer from gastrointestinal (GI) problems, with those experiencing the worst GI problems often having the most severe cases of autism. Recent research2 again highlights the intriguing link between the gut and the brain, and how dysfunction in the gut-brain axis influences ASD traits.

Genetics cannot explain autism epidemic

In most children, symptoms of ASD appear by age 2 or 3, although symptoms of associated developmental delays may appear even earlier. In the late 1970s, researchers discovered pairs of identical twins often shared ASD, demonstrating the condition has a genetic component.3

However, genetics are by far not the only, or even primary, risk factor. Research4 from Stanford University School of Medicine, published in 2011, which again looked at twins, discovered fraternal (dizygotic) twins were more likely to share an autism diagnosis than identical (monozygotic) twins.

Fraternal twins share only half their DNA, while identical twins share 99.99%,5 which means something other than genetics is responsible for the higher rate of double diagnoses among fraternal twins. According to the researchers, environmental factors are the most likely culprit. In conclusion, they stated that “Susceptibility to ASD has moderate genetic heritability and a substantial shared twin environmental component.”

This is not an entirely surprising finding. There is no such thing as a genetic epidemic; hence genetics simply cannot be used as an explanation for the exponential growth in autism cases. Indeed, research6 published in 2008 found de novo mutations (new mutations that spontaneously arise) associated with autism were present in just 1% of children diagnosed with autism.

Environmental risk factors for autism

Instead, the majority of autism cases appear to result from the activation or expression of a number of different genes, and there are several epigenetic and environmental factors that can trigger them. Among them:

Toxic exposures, such as the heavy metals aluminum and mercury from contaminated sea food and vaccines, toxic microbes such as viruses and mold, glyphosate and electromagnetic fields from cellphones and Wi-Fi, just to name a few.

Vitamin D deficiency

Brain inflammation triggered by encephalitis following vaccination, defective placenta, immature blood-brain barrier, immune response to the mother to infection while pregnant, premature birth and toxins in the environment.7

Gut inflammation triggered by an imbalanced microbiome. Contributing factors include C-section, abnormal microbiome in the mother, bottle-feeding with infant formula and a processed food diet.

Russian neurologist Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride believes brain toxicity stemming from gut toxicity, otherwise known as Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), is a key factor that sets the stage for autism, especially when vaccines are added into the mix.

According to Campbell-McBride, toxicity flowing from the child’s gut clogs the brain with toxicity, preventing it from performing its normal function and process sensory information.

The gut-brain connection in autism

As mentioned, recent research confirms and further strengthens the theory that the gut plays an important role in the development of ASD. According to this study,8,9 published in the journal Autism Research:

“People with autism commonly experience gastrointestinal problems, however the cause is unknown. We report gut symptoms in patients with the autism?associated R451C mutation encoding the neuroligin?3 protein. We show that many of the genes implicated in autism are expressed in mouse gut.

The neuroligin 3 R451C mutation alters the enteric nervous system, causes gastrointestinal dysfunction, and disrupts gut microbe populations in mice. Gut dysfunction in autism could be due to mutations that affect neuronal communication.”

In other words, genetic mutations found in both the gut and the brain may be a primary culprit. Mutation in the neuroligin?3 R451C has previously been shown to alter synaptic function in the hippocampus and cortex, resulting in impaired social behavior.10

Other research11 has shown neuroligin-3 mutations can also trigger “specialized cognitive abilities” seen in some autistic children. Previous research has also linked the mutation to gut dysfunction.12 Lead investigator Elisa Hill-Yardin, associate professor at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, told Neuroscience News:13

“We know the brain and gut share many of the same neurons and now for the first time we’ve confirmed that they also share autism-related gene mutations. Up to 90% of people with autism suffer from gut issues, which can have a significant impact on daily life for them and their families.

Our findings suggest these gastrointestinal problems may stem from the same mutations in genes that are responsible for brain and behavioral issues in autism. It’s a whole new way of thinking about it — for clinicians, families and researchers — and it broadens our horizons in the search for treatments to improve the quality of life for people with autism.”

How neuroligin-3 mutation alters gut function

The featured study builds on earlier research, including unpublished clinical work by Swedish, Danish and French researchers. Neuroscience News reports:14

“The study of two brothers with autism by Professor Christopher Gillberg (University of Gothenburg), Professor Maria Råstam (Lund University) and Professor Thomas Bourgeron (Pasteur Institute) was the first to identify a specific gene mutation as a cause of the neurodevelopmental disorder.

This mutation affects communication by altering the ‘velcro’ between neurons that keeps them in close contact … Gillberg and Råstam also took detailed clinical notes of the brothers’ significant gastrointestinal problems.

Researchers in the Gut-Brain Axis team at RMIT have built on this clinical work with a series of studies on the function and structure of the gut in mice that have the same ‘velcro’ gene mutation. They team found this mutation affects:

gut contractions

the number of neurons in the small intestine

the speed that food moves through the small intestine

responses to a critical neurotransmitter important in autism (well known in the brain but not previously identified to play any major role in the gut)

… While this specific ‘velcro’ mutation is rare, it is one of more than 150 autism-related gene mutations that alter neuronal connections, Hill-Yardin said. ‘The link we’ve confirmed suggests a broader mechanism, indicating that the mutations that affect connections between neurons could be behind the gut problems in many patients.'”

Distinct gut microbiota differences found in healthy and autistic children

Even without a genetic component, the gut microbiome appears to play an important role in ASD. In a 2013 PLOS ONE study,15 researchers analyzed the microbial content of fecal samples from 20 healthy and 20 autistic children, finding distinct differences between the two groups. As reported by Medical News Today:16

“Specifically, three bacterial genera — Prevotella, Coprococcus, and Veillonellaceae — were diminished in subjects with autism, when compared with samples from normal children … The three genera represent important groups of carbohydrate-degrading and/or fermenting microbes.

Such bacteria could be critical for healthy microbial-gut interactions or play a supportive role for a wide network of different microorganisms in the gut. The latter would explain the decreased diversity observed in autistic samples.”

The researchers noted the autistic children’s gut microflora had reduced richness and diversity, which are essential factors in creating a bacterial community capable of dealing with environmental assaults. In other words, having an imbalanced gut microbiome may render these children more susceptible to the adverse effects of environmental toxins.

One of the lead authors told Medical News,17 “We believe that a diverse gut is a healthy gut,” and suggested that antibiotics, which may eliminate beneficial bacteria and have been found to be administered more often in the first three years of life among autistic children compared to nonautistic children, may play a key role.

The GAPS protocol may be the answer for many

Campbell-McBride’s research shows there’s a profound dynamic interaction between your gut, brain and immune system. She has developed what might be one of the most profoundly important treatment strategies for preventing autism.

In her research, Campbell-McBride discovered that nearly all of the mothers of autistic children have abnormal gut flora, which is significant because newborns inherit their gut flora from their mothers at the time of birth. Establishing normal gut flora in the first 20 days or so of life plays a crucial role in the maturation of your baby’s immune system.

Babies who develop abnormal gut flora are left with compromised immune systems, putting them at higher risk for suffering vaccine reactions. If your baby has suboptimal gut flora, vaccines can become the proverbial “last straw” — the trigger that “primes” his/her immune system to develop chronic health problems.

Simple lab tests can identify GAPS

The good news is you can rather inexpensively identify GAPS within the first weeks of your baby’s life, which can help you make better-informed decisions about vaccinations, and about how to proceed to set your child on the path to health.

The entire process for identifying children who would be at risk for developing autism from a vaccine is described in her book “Gut and Psychology Syndrome,” but to sum it up, in her practice she starts out by collecting a complete health history of the parents, and their gut health is assessed.

Then, within the first few days of life, the stool of the child is analyzed to determine the state of the baby’s gut flora, followed by a urine test to check for metabolites. Together, this can give you a picture of the state of your child’s immune system. These tests are available in most laboratories around the world.

If the test results are normal, the risk of autism after vaccination is significantly reduced. If you find that your baby has abnormal microflora, or begins to develop symptoms of autism, the GAPS program should be started immediately, as the younger the child is when you start the treatment, the better the results. The child also should not be given any vaccines until their gut microbiome tests normal.

Identifying abnormal gut flora early on is crucial to protecting your child’s health

Campbell-McBride reversed her own son’s autism using dietary changes and detoxification, and her hypothesis is in my view one of the most relevant. I believe her GAPS nutritional protocol is important for most people these days, as a majority have poor gut health due to poor diet and toxic exposures, but it’s particularly crucial for pregnant women and young children.

The best way to prevent GAPS in the first place is for the mother to avoid all processed foods, sugar, antibiotics and birth control pills before conception as these cause yeast and fungi to grow and also cause leaky gut. This can then be followed by breastfeeding and avoiding the use of antibiotics during (intrapartum) and after delivery.

Another important factor is vitamin D deficiency — especially in conjunction with damaged gut microbiome. Optimizing your vitamin D levels and your gut flora before and during pregnancy may be two of the most important prevention strategies discovered to date. For other strategies that can be helpful in the prevention and treatment of autism, see “The autistic brain: Thinking across the spectrum.”

Corn oil — Important caveats to remember

Warning: This oil comes with potentially damaging side effects due to either the ingredient it’s made from or the manufacturing process used to extract it. Because these negative effects overshadow the potential benefits, I do not recommend this oil as a food or for therapeutic use. Always be aware of the potential side effects of any herbal oil before using.

Food nutrients are highly sensitive to heat,1,2 so there are several factors to consider when cooking to preserve as much of these nutrients as possible. One of these factors is the cooking oil you use.

Some cooking oils are stable enough to resist chemical changes when heated to high temperatures, while other oils, like polyunsaturated vegetable oils, can increase the risk for heat-induced damage and create high-energy molecules called free radicals upon degrading inside your body.3,4 One of the most popular vegetable oils is corn oil. Discover the health risks of using corn oil for cooking and whether this oil is good for any other purpose.

What is corn oil?

Corn or maize oil is extracted from the germ of corn. It’s mainly used for cooking and is also a key ingredient in margarine and other processed foods.5 Corn oil is also used in various industrial applications, such as stock for biodiesel6 and a constituent in the production of resins, plastics and lubricants, to name a few.7

Despite being generally less expensive than other vegetable oils on the store shelf,8 a huge factor in its price is the staggering amount of subsidies the United States gives to corn to underwrite the cost. Corn is one of the most heavily subsidized crops in the country, raking in over $111.2 billion from the government between 1995 and 2017, according to data from the Environmental Working Group (EWG).9

As you can see, this subsidy on a basically unhealthy food easily undersells healthy choices. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that the high consumption of foods derived from subsidized commodities like corn is associated with an increased risk of cardiometabolic disease in adults.10

Moreover, the problem with using corn oil and other vegetable oils for cooking is that they contain perishable bonds that create free radicals in the presence of oxygen, a process also known as autoxidation.11 These free radicals can lead to cholesterol oxidation, which has been linked to an increased risk of diseases such as atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, retinal degeneration, age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.12

Corn oil also contains very high amounts of omega-6 fats, which can throw your body’s omega-6 to omega-3 ratio out of balance. Corn oil is reported to have an omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 46-to-113 — a far cry from the ideal 1-to-1 ratio. The standard American diet already has far too much omega-6 in it, and the serious distortion of the ratio further increases your risk for many degenerative diseases.14

Uses of corn oil

Apart from serving as a less-than-ideal cooking oil, corn oil is used in manufacturing paint, ink, textiles and insecticides.15 It also sometimes functions as a carrier oil for drug molecules in pharmaceutical products.16

Corn oil is used for skin care products as well, including soaps, balms and other bathing essentials.17 You can also massage it onto your scalp to help strengthen and add shine to your dry hair.18 Here are some of the ways you can use corn oil around your home:

  1. Lubricate a key lock — If you have a sticky key lock at home, wipe the key with corn oil before inserting it into the lock. The oil acts as a lubricant, making it easier for you to turn and pull out the key.19
  2. Clean up watermarks from wooden furniture — Mix equal parts of salt and corn oil then rub it onto the watermarks on your wood furniture. Use a clean cloth to polish it off.20
  3. Coat your snow shovel — Rubbing the oil on your shovel will prevent snow from sticking to it.21

Composition of corn oil

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, industrial and retail corn oil contains 27.5 grams of total monounsaturated fats, 54.6 grams of total polyunsaturated fats and 12.9 grams of total saturated fats per 100-gram serving.22

One important caveat you need to consider regarding this oil is that it’s typically derived from genetically modified (GM) seeds that are designed to resist herbicides like glyphosate.

A study published in the International Journal of Biological Sciences demonstrates the toxicity of three GM corn varieties from biotech company Monsanto, now Bayer. Results show that consuming GM corn increases the risk for hepatorenal toxicity and unintended direct or indirect metabolic consequences.23

How corn oil is made

To extract corn oil from the corn germ, a combination of continuous screw presses and solvent extraction is used. The initial expeller extracts around 50% of the oil content, while the solvent extraction brings the total yield to 95%. The corn oil is then refined through degumming to remove phosphatides, alkali treatment to neutralize free fatty acids and bleaching to remove trace elements and create a desirable color.

The final steps of the refining process include winterization, a process wherein high melting waxes are removed, and deodorization.24 This entire process may contribute to the potential health risks of corn oil.25

How does corn oil work?

When used for cooking, corn oil serves as a medium in which heat can be transferred. It may also help contribute to the flavor and texture of food.26 However, I do not recommend using corn oil for cooking, as it can potentially lead to a variety of health problems. For practical uses, such as for aromatherapy, skin conditioning or hot oil massage, corn oil works as a carrier oil.27

Is corn oil safe?

Corn oil and other polyunsaturated vegetable oils are heavily marketed for “healthful” cooking alongside the vilification of saturated fats, which actually do not cause heart disease and, on the contrary, serve as a healthful addition in your diet.28 Aside from the oxidized oil dangers I discussed in the first section, here are two other issues you should be aware of with corn oil and vegetables oils:

  1. The majority of these vegetables oils in the U.S. are made from genetically modified crops,29 which can contain residues of the herbicide glyphosate and Bt toxin found in GM corn and soy.
  2. They are heavily processed, potentially causing a range of ill health consequences.30

Side effects of corn oil

Some of the worst foods you can consume are those cooked with polyunsaturated vegetable oils like corn oil.31 The introduction of oxidized cholesterol into your system is a big concern, converting your good cholesterol into bad, which leads directly to cardiovascular diseases.32

When heated, corn oil produces harmful chemicals called aldehydes, which have been found to increase the risk for autism spectrum disorder, Parkinson’s disease and gastric, breast and prostate cancer.33 A study published in the Journal of Lipid Research also shows that polyunsaturated fatty acids promote hepatic inflammation.34

If you’re looking for a cooking oil that is less susceptible to heat-induced damage and will not put you at risk of various chronic diseases, consider using coconut oil. Coconut oil contains healthy fats that may help support your heart health,35 thyroid function,36 immune system,37 brain function38 and metabolism,39 among others.


Your water may not be safe to drink: Here’s how to test it

(Natural News) Water is essential to life. Humans can survive for three weeks without food, but only seven days without water. It’s even more important for a prepper who wants all of his or her bases covered. What’s terrifying is even today, water is not safe – contaminated drinking water is a danger to everyone,…

5G Antennas On Property Roof In Pennsylvania: Do You Want Them On Your House?

By Catherine J. Frompovich, author of Our Chemical Lives And The Hijacking Of Our DNA: A Probe Into What's Probably Making Us Sick

How would YOU like to have apparent 5G antennas similar to the parallel arrays on the roof of the house below in Downington, Pennsylvania?

That may become an extremely scary reality IF and WHEN mass 5G rollouts spread across towns, boroughs, cities, counties and states across the USA!

Benjamin Fulford 6/24/19: Khazarian mafia’s Satanic summer solstice Iran sacrifice backfires big time

The latest attempt by Khazarian Satanists to trigger World War III in Iran has backfired spectacularly.  What happened was that U.S. President Donald Trump, following the orders of Satanic Chabad pseudo-Jews, ordered a massive attack on Iran on June 21st, a day of Satanic summer solstice fire sacrifice, but the U.S. military refused to obey him.  In the end, the only fire sacrifice came in the form of huge explosions at a Philadelphia oil refinery that took place at the same time the Iran attack was supposed to have happened.

This came about as Iran shot down a U.S. drone entering its airspace, while deliberately not shooting down a manned U.S. airplane that accompanied it.  To save face, Trump’s Khazarian puppet masters issued laughable news reports saying they had hit Iran with a “retaliatory digital strike.”  What they should have said was a “retaliatory fake news strike.”

Iran has actually been very restrained, considering that oil storage facilities at its biggest container port were set ablaze on June 5th, while on June 7th, six Iranian merchant ships were set ablaze almost simultaneously in two Persian Gulf ports by “incendiary devices” of “unknown origin.”

Pentagon sources say Israel was the likely perpetrator of these attacks, and a direct line was established between U.S. Central Command and the Iranian Navy to ensure that third-party provocations like this would not result in war between the U.S. and Iran.

In a related move, U.S. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan was fired “because he showed up on a list of people compromised by the Khazarian mafia,” MI6 sources say.  In particular, he was deeply involved in the “weaponization of civilian aircraft by Boeing,” his long-time employer.  In other words, he was involved in the Malaysia Air Flight 370/17 mass murder and nuclear blackmail incident, the sources say.

The U.S. military also remains unwilling to supply a Secretary of Defense to, or follow orders from, the Trump administration.  Instead, “the military is sending its elder statesman, former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen, to oppose war with Iran on ABC,” Pentagon sources say.

Even long-time Trump supporters are finally beginning to realize the president is personally compromised and blackmailed by the Satanic Chabad cult to which his son-in-law Jared Kushner belongs.  These fanatics believe they have to trigger a war between Iran, China, and Russia (Gog) and the G-7 (Magog) in order to start a war that will kill 90% of humanity and allow them to enslave the remainder.

Trump, meanwhile, bounces back and forth like a ping-pong ball, depending on whether the last person he talked to was a U.S. military patriot or a Khazarian Satanic gangster.

On North Korea, Trump is getting sane instructions from the U.S. military.  That’s why North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un announced he had received a “letter of excellent content” from President Trump and that “he would seriously contemplate the interesting content.”

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7170951/North-Korean-leader-receives-excellent-letter-Trump-state-media.html

According to White Dragon Society sources in the White House, the letter proposed …

… unifying the Korean Peninsula, with Kim being offered the symbolic leadership role of Emperor, while South Korean President Moon Jae-in would become President in charge of day-to-day administration.  The U.S. military would keep its bases in South Korea, but stay south of the 38th parallel in the unified Korea, the sources say.  Chinese President Xi Jinping also promised Chinese economic help for the united Korea, Chinese government sources say.

Sources in the Japanese Yatagarasu, or Three Legged Crow secret society, confirmed this and added that work would start on a tunnel linking Japan to Korea once the peninsula was unified.  The sources added that Korea will be sending a unified team to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Also, in the future, a marriage between the Korean and Japanese royal families might be arranged to promote peace and unity in Northeast Asia, the sources say.

A resolution of the Korean issue will mean the world can focus its full attention on bankrupting the U.S. Corporate government and forcing the Zionists and their rogue state of Israel into stopping their terrorist and warmongering activities.

The WDS has suggested to various power brokers that bankrupting the U.S. Corporate government would remove the Khazarian mafia’s main source of power.  One attempt to do this nearly succeeded early this year, as the U.S. government was forced to shut down for 35 days (but remember, the U.S. military stayed funded for that time).

However, following that, Trump seems to have blinked and become a raging Zionist fanatic after all the military left his government.  Since then, the corporate media and Trump have been pumping up the stock market and chanting “the economy is doing great,” when the reality is the opposite.

Now, the U.S. corporate government is facing bankruptcy again, this time by losing the trade war with China.  The fact is that while Zionist bankers can pump up the U.S. stock market with their funny money, they cannot use it to pay for imports.

Also, because the foreign-owned so-called U.S. dollar is too strong to support the real U.S. economy, Trump’s tariffs are not bringing manufacturing back to the U.S.  Unless the U.S. issues its own sovereign currency aligned to the U.S. economy, tariffs on China would only result in factories moving to places like Bangladesh and Vietnam, not to the U.S.

The reality is that despite all the corporate cheerleading, the real U.S. economy is already facing a Lehman-like crisis.  The retail industry is undergoing an “apocalypse,” auto industry sales are “absolutely abysmal,” the agricultural industry is going to have the “worst year it has seen in at least several decades,” the real estate industry is “poised for the worst shutdown” since the subprime mortgage meltdown, manufacturing is in steep decline, and truckers are facing the biggest drop in orders on record.

It is no coincidence that at this time the U.S. Treasury is testing an emergency T-bill telephone auction system.  Such auctions would only be needed if financial system computers were shut down.  In fact, some sort of financial black swan event could happen in July if things continue as they are.

However, it may well be that the Chinese will decide at the G-20 meeting scheduled for June 28 and 29 to give the U.S. a bridge loan to tide it over for a couple of months for negotiations.  However, the entire planet will be asking for an end to the Zionist project in exchange for any continued financing of the U.S.

The U.S. military has already forced Trump to publicly distance himself from Israel following his failed attempt to start World War III.  Pentagon sources note, “Trump disinvited Israeli officials from a Bahrain economic conference.”  Also, Trump was forced to repeatedly tell the press he was grateful that Iran spared the lives of the 38 Americans in the flight crew of the P-8 surveillance craft they could have shot down, the sources note.  The U.S. military explained to their Iranian counterparts that the P-8 plane was in fact “hunting Israeli submarines,” the sources say.

Also, “by testing Iran’s robust air defenses, sacrificing a global hawk drone, and establishing a hotline with Iran’s navy, U.S. Central Command “may have neutralized warmongers [National Security Adviser John] Bolton, and [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo,” the sources say.

Also, pressure is being put on Israel to get rid of its arsenal of nuclear weapons, the Pentagon sources say.  Having the International Atomic Energy Association welcome Palestine as an observer state puts “a UN camel nose into Israel’s nuke tent,” they note.  Also, the Pentagon has informed Iran that any new nuclear deal they reach with the U.S. will include the denuclearization of Israel.

Inside the U.S., meanwhile, the undeclared civil war continues to rage on unabated.  Six different staffers working for anti-establishment icon John McAfee’s 2020 Presidential campaign have been hospitalized since he announced he was running for office, while McAfee himself became sick.

This was followed by the contents of Jeffery “pedophile island” Epstein’s entire black book being published online.  The publication of these names and the contact information means that, if necessary, these people can be hunted down, secret society sources promise.

Many senior Zionist billionaires and power brokers have already “vanished” recently, and technology is being developed to detect computer graphic attempts to make it appear that people like George Soros are still alive.

The ruling elite, meanwhile, have been using the phrase “rules-based global order” to justify their continued domination.  Linguistically speaking, what this phrase really means is that the world must obey their “rules.”  Of course, these are the people who once told me the golden rule means “he who has the gold makes the rules.”  They forget that gold is just a yellow metal that you cannot eat.  It promises to be a long hot summer, especially for the Khazarian Satan-worshiping faction of the global elite.
