Is Wikipedia stealing the news? Part 1 of 2 — A special edition of Ghost in the Machine series, Part 7

You may think Wikipedia — originally funded with revenue from soft-core pornography1 — is the best thing since Cliff Notes, with quick and easy access to all the facts and news you ever needed to know. Some believe Wikipedia is even better than Encyclopedia Britannica; indeed, Wikipedia’s founders intended it to be a replacement for it. But is Wikipedia really a trustworthy source?

Wikipedia is not a reliable source

Interestingly enough, while Wikipedia has become the world’s most powerful thought leader — controlling a vast amount of internet information and being used to determine the credibility of experts across most fields — Wikipedia itself warns it is NOT a reliable source. It states:2

“Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Wikipedia can be edited by anyone at any time. This means that any information it contains at any particular time could be vandalism, a work in progress, or just plain wrong.

Biographies of living persons, subjects that happen to be in the news, and politically or culturally contentious topics are especially vulnerable to these issues. Edits on Wikipedia that are in error may eventually be fixed.

However, because Wikipedia is a volunteer run project, it cannot monitor every contribution all of the time. There are many errors that remain unnoticed for days, weeks, months, or even years. Therefore, Wikipedia should not be considered a definitive source in and of itself.”

Despite this blatant admission of unreliability, Wikipedia is the go-to site for Google quality raters to assess the expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness of an author or website. There’s also evidence showing Wikipedia is edited by people with a very specific agenda, and anyone who tries to clarify or clear up inaccuracies on the site is simply blocked.

Wikipedia is ruled by skeptics with biased agendas

Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, for example, has repeatedly tried to “correct provably false facts” about her background on Wikipedia, only to be told she’s not a reliable source and having her edits overridden by anonymous editors that guard her page, making sure her award-winning work is kept hushed and her character portrait tarnished.3

Anyone looking at Wikipedia to assess Attkisson’s expertise as a journalist — without already being familiar with her stellar body of work — would walk away thinking she’s an unreliable source, when in fact she’s one of a very few impeccable truth-tellers of our time.

Other examples of “sanitizing” certain pages and tarnishing others can be found in a June 28, 2015 article4 in The Epoch Times. As noted by Deepak Chopra in a 2013 article:5

“Thanks to the Internet, skepticism can spread with the speed of light, carrying in its wake all forms of unfairness and bad faith. A distressing example has been occurring at Wikipedia, where a band of committed skeptics have focused their efforts to discredit anyone whom they judge an enemy …

[S]keptics … have become so skilled at thwarting anyone who disagrees with their point of view that a small swarm of skeptical editors is capable of outnumbering, bullying, and even banning all those who oppose them.”

Similarly, British journalist and author Robert McLuhan, who covers consciousness, spirituality and psi research, had the following to say about Wikipedia in 2013:6

“Recently I’ve been poking around on the site to see how psi topics are presented. My impression is that a novice would come away with a pretty jaundiced view. It’s obvious that sceptics are busily re-editing articles in their favour, and a reader has kindly sent me a link that shows how they do this.

It’s a project called Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia,7 run by Susan Gerbic, who recruits sceptics to give pages a makeover, both those that publicise their own side (ie debunkers, key sceptic figures, etc) and also the opposition’s (celebrity psychics, paranormal claimants, etc).

This is a specialised activity and Gerbic’s blog8 gives tips and techniques. Recently she’s gone global, getting sceptics to edit foreign language pages.”

According to Wired, the Guerilla Skepticism on Wikipedia project had at least 120 editors as of 2018.9 For an inside look at what many Wikipedia editors seeking more neutral coverage are up against, read this six-part series on The Weiler Psi blog.10 To learn even more, check out Wikipediocracy11 — an entire organization dedicated to exposing the many problems and hypocrisy of Wikipedia.

Even Lawrence (Larry) Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001, bailed ship the very next year,12 saying “trolls sort of took over” the site, that “The inmates started running the asylum,”13 and that “In some fields and some topics, there are groups who ‘squat’ on articles and insist on making them reflect their own specific biases.”14,15

In 2012, evidence also emerged revealing a Wikipedia trustee and Wikipedian in Residence were being paid to edit pages on behalf of their clients and secure their placement on Wikipedia’s front page in the “Did You Know” section,16 which publicizes new or expanded articles17 — a clear violation of Wikipedia rules.

Study conclusion: Wikipedia wrong on 90% of medical advice

If you ever use Wikipedia for health information, take heed, as this may be a costly and potentially dangerous tactic. An important May 27, 2014, article18,19 in Time magazine addressed this, reporting on a study20,21 looking into the veracity of medical claims made on Wikipedia. As reported by Time:

A team of U.S. scientists said they found ‘many errors’ in Wikipedia articles concerning the 10 costliest medical conditions. The researchers cross-checked Wikipedia entries on coronary disease, lung cancer, hypertension and back pain, among other ailments, against the latest research from peer-reviewed journals.

Nine out of 10 entries analyzed on the crowd-sourced encyclopedia contained assertions that were contradicted by the peer-reviewed sources …

‘Health care professionals, trainees, and patients should use caution when using Wikipedia to answer questions regarding patient care,’ wrote the study’s authors … The authors laid particular stress on medical professionals; a recent study22,23 found that 50 percent of physicians admitted using Wikipedia as a reference source.”

Wikipedia hates holistic medicine

Meanwhile, the Guerilla Sceptics have deleted expert articles on homeopathy,24,25,26,27 energy medicine and the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), just to name a few, replacing them with entries that present these topics as various forms of “pseudoscience,” disregarding the peer-reviewed scientific evidence that supports them.

Even the president of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine reports he was prevented from posting positive information about antiaging derived from the academy’s own research.28 One blatant example of how Wikipedia twists content with slanted and biased presentations is the entry for the founder of homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.29

Rather than simply describing Hahnemann as a physician best known for creating the system of alternative medicine called homeopathy, they attribute to him the creation of “the pseudoscientific” system (with a hyperlink to pseudoscientific) of homeopathy.

There’s nothing objective about this entry, and it’s quite clearly designed to manipulate public opinion about homeopathy, seeing how research showing the efficacy of homeopathic medicines has been published in several of the world’s most respected medical journals.

Overall, you’re not going to find out the truth about alternative medicine on Wikipedia — in large part due to the intense bias of its co-founder, Jimmy Wales, who is openly hostile against holistic medicine, and who in 2014 rejected and derided a Change.org petition to bring in more positive discussion of holistic medicine on Wikipedia.30,31,32

Understand how Wikipedia operates and how it’s being used

Truth be told, Wikipedia is dependent on your lack of knowledge about how they really operate — and the fact that they post a disclaimer stating readers should not trust everything they read on Wikipedia.

Taking advantage of your desire for a quick, let-them-do-the-work information search, their goal is to shuttle your thoughts, opinions and knowledge into a silo that doesn’t allow anything in except what they put in there. And, despite their claims of neutrality, what they’re putting on their site is some of the most biased information you’ll find anywhere in media today.

Worse, they’ve partnered with Google so your searches will go straight to Wikipedia, or at the very least high on the Google search page. Wikipedia’s cozy relationship with Google is not just curious (considering Google’s quality raters are told to treat Wikipedia information as the gospel of truth); it’s dangerous to free thought and free speech on the internet.

Case in point: Do a Google search33 on Wikipedia and you will see that Google allows top placement for answers to questions about Wikipedia — such as: Is Wikipedia fake information? Does Wikipedia tell the truth? How reliable is Wikipedia? — created by Wikipedia itself. Talk about letting the fox not only guard, but run, the henhouse!

How are readers to know what’s true and what’s fake about Wikipedia when Wikipedia is its own fact-checker?34 Perhaps a better question might be: Just how much does Google’s $2 million donation35 to Wikipedia figure in to how Google answers questions about Wikipedia in its search engines?

Wikipedia also gets funding from the likes of George Soros, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg — all individuals who are notorious for stamping out free speech, free thought and objective exchanges of information.

They’ve also gained the favor of institutions of higher learning that once banned Wikipedia as a source, but now promote them, and have chummied up with one of the oldest, most-respected news leaders in the U.S., the Poynter Institute, which I’ll discuss in further detail below.

Now, instead of asking the questions behind the questions and doing their own original investigative journalism, the media is allowing these outside-funded entities — Wikipedia and Snopes, along with so-called “fact-checkers” in the form of a group called The International Fact-Checking Network36 — to do their jobs for them.

What’s particularly tragic is the fact that the Fourth Estate — the last bastion of a free world with real news — doesn’t even seem to realize the power they’ve handed over to anonymous agents with zero accountability.

Wikipedia as a generator of news

In recent years, it’s become clear Wikipedia is not just a simple repository of encyclopedic information but an actual generator of breaking news. A May 1, 2019, Newswise article37 talks about this trend, saying that it looks like Wikipedia may be the “new” media, generating news (often in real time) but without the codes of ethics that conventional news sources have historically adhered to. As reported by Newswise:

“Dr. Bunty Avieson from the University’s Department of Media and Communications has examined Wikipedia as a breaking news source, in a new research paper38 published today in prestigious internet studies journal First Monday.

‘When a major global news event occurs, such as the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka or the Christchurch shootings, Wikipedia contributors from around the world come together in a virtual ‘newsroom’ to craft a narrative, followed closely by readers seeking the latest information,’ she said.

Her research found in any given month, the site’s most popular articles — both in number of views and number of edits — are those that report breaking news … Avieson’s research also highlighted some of the consequences of using Wikipedia as a source of news:

‘Wikipedia contributors don’t undertake the core role of journalists, which is to produce new work. Contributors’ news gathering practices are solely ‘aggregation and assemblage’ …

‘Similarly, in terms of professionalism, contributors don’t answer to journalism codes of ethics and the hierarchy that has formed is based on seniority and meritocracy, where editors gain administrative privileges according to the culture of Wikipedia. This raises some ethical concerns.’”

In a twist of irony, Wikipedia uses real news to create “new” news. The problem with this is that Wikipedia also stands as a repository of all they believe is worthy of knowing, and any information that threatens their tunnel-visioned world is simply edited out.

Why you should never rely on Wikipedia

According to the book, “The Wikipedia Revolution,”39 at its inception, co-founder Wales said Wikipedia’s only “nonnegotiable” policy would be its neutral point of view. Ideas and facts were to be presented “in such a fashion that both supporters and opponents can agree.”

Yet Wikipedia is far from neutral. Today, there is only one point of view, and that is Wikipedia’s viewpoint, which in turn is influenced if not outright dictated by industry and funders with no room for opposing views.

Unfortunately, while colleges used to ban40,41 students from citing Wikipedia and Snopes in their papers due to it being riddled with “mistakes and sometimes deliberate falsehoods,”42,43 many now encourage it — a trend that will ensure the perpetuation of bias into a new generation of professionals.

In 2011, Mark E. Moran wrote an article44 about “The Top 10 Reasons Students Cannot Cite or Rely on Wikipedia” for Finding Dulcinea, Librarian of the Internet. It’s an excellent compilation of why you cannot rely on Wikipedia, and while several years old, it’s more than relevant today. Among these 10 reasons, Moran cites:

  • You must never fully rely on any one source for important information
  • You especially can’t rely on something when you don’t even know who wrote it
  • The contributor with an agenda often prevails
  • Individuals with agendas sometimes have significant editing authority
  • Accurate contributors can be silenced

Some industries allowed to control own Wikipedia presence

Again, the main problem with Wikipedia is that its “facts” are carefully cherry-picked to support a particular agenda. It doesn’t tell both sides of any given story. By so doing, they are destroying investigative journalism, which at its core is about questioning prevailing “facts” to get insight into the story behind the story.

Good journalism asks questions beyond a presentation of facts. A lawyer cannot win a case presenting just the facts. More often than not, intention and motivation need to be taken into account. This is where Wikipedia fails — yet they’ve convinced the very people who should know better (academia and news media) that everything anyone needs to know is on a Wikipedia page.

In “The Wikipedia Revolution,” author Andrew Lih reveals IBM has a senior staffer who polices Wikipedia’s references to IBM 24/7.45 Meanwhile, many public figures and industries are banned from editing their own pages — including me.

Equally disturbing is the fact that Wikipedia is now teamed up with “fact-checkers” around the world, led by the Poynter Institute, an Associated Press-affiliated, long-standing mentor institution and school for journalism whose motto is: “Democracy needs journalism. Journalism needs Poynter.”

Earlier this year, Poynter compiled a list46 of 515 “unreliable” websites, including 29 conservative media outlets, based on “fake news” databases created by the Annenberg Public Policy Center, Merrimack College, PolitiFact and Snopes, among others.47 Poynter also called on advertisers to blacklist the named sites, as advertising dollars is what keeps them going.

On May 2, 2019, after significant backlash,48 Poynter issued a retraction,49 saying they had found “weaknesses in the methodology” used to create the list. In two May 1, 2019, Tweets, Stephen Gutowski50 — a staff writer for The Washington Free Beacon who covers U.S. politics and in 2016 received the Gun Rights Policy Conference’s Journalist of the Year award51 — wrote:52

“I see the @FreeBeacon is still included in @Poynter’s list. I know for a fact that their staff shares my reporting so I’d love to hear any explanation for why my work and the work of my colleagues is now being deemed unreliable without so much as a single accusation of inaccuracy …

What a disgusting exercise in bad faith from an organization that’s supposed to be about improving and promoting journalism. Instead, they’re creating tabloid-level listicles to smear reporters without offering even a single piece of evidence. Shame on you, @Poynter.”

However, while Poynter issued a statement saying, “We regret that we failed to ensure that the data was rigorous before publication, and apologize for the confusion and agitation caused by its publication,” it appears the blacklisting is still occurring, through the joint efforts of its International Fact-Checking Network and known free speech deniers Google, Facebook and Snopes.

Wikipedia-Google-Poynter — A censorship trifecta

You may wonder how the Poynter Institute,53 the mission54 of which is “to fortify journalism’s role in a free society [by championing] freedom of expression, civil dialogue and compelling journalism,” could allow itself to partake of the poisoned apple of subjective censorship and systematic elimination of free thought and freedom of expression.

It does, and it’s important to understand how Poynter not only enables this silencing of free speech, but ultimately is a partner in this effort. In a nutshell, Poynter is a partner with Google, and Google is partners with Wikipedia by virtue of its investments.

October 26, 2017, Google, which funds Wikipedia, announced55 its partnership with Poynter’s International Fact-Checking Network, which aims to bring together and support fact-checkers across the world56 by promoting best practices and information exchange, monitoring trends, tracking the impact of fact-checking, providing training and advocating for increased fact-checking.57

The Network also holds an annual fact-checker’s conference called Global Fact.58,59 Among this year’s participants were Facebook (which uses Wikipedia for its fact-checking), Google, Snopes’ David Mikkelson and YouTube.60

Again, as with Wikipedia contributors and editors, the vast majority of fact-checkers do not have a traditional journalism background, nor are a majority of fact-checking sites run by established media. Increasingly, then, news — and the fact-checking that used to be part of a journalist’s job description — is being outsourced to individuals who aren’t journalists and aren’t trained to think and act like one.

Boycott Google and support independent media

The situation we face today is quite remarkable. Not only has investigative journalism gone the way of the dinosaurs, but Wikipedia, which since its inception in 2001 has proven to be among the least reliable of sources on certain topics, is now being pushed to the foreground as a premier source of breaking news and authentication of expertise and reliability by an internet monopoly, Google, which is leading the charge on global censorship of information that might tarnish the most destructive and dangerous industries on this planet.

It doesn’t get a whole lot worse than this, which is why the myth of Wikipedia’s supremacy needs to be revealed for what it is — a bias-driven agenda to shape public opinion and thought — and Google’s monopoly needs to be broken.

While the U.S. Department of Justice is slated to investigate Google for breach of antitrust laws,61 we cannot afford to simply hope and wait for the DOJ to break it up. If we work together to boycott them, Google will crumble under its own weight.

Boycott Google by avoiding any and all Google products:

? Stop using Google search engines. Alternatives include DuckDuckGo62 and Startpage63

? Uninstall Google Chrome and use the Opera browser instead, available for all computers and mobile devices.64 From a security perspective, Opera is far superior to Chrome and offers a free VPN service (virtual private network) to further preserve your privacy

? If you have a Gmail account, close it and open an account with a non-Google affiliated email service such as ProtonMail,65 and encrypted email service based in Switzerland

? Stop using Google docs. Digital Trends has published an article suggesting a number of alternatives66

? If you’re a high school student, do not convert the Google accounts you created as a student into personal accounts

How to find Mercola.com articles moving forward

As discussed in “Google Buries Mercola In Their Latest Search Engine Update” Part 1 and Part 2, you can no longer get any of my articles using keyword searches only in a Google-based search engine. To find my articles, you have to add “Mercola.com” to your search term (example: “Mercola.com heart disease” or “Mercola.com Type 2 diabetes”). Even skipping the “.com” will minimize your search results. So, moving forward, here are a few suggestions for how to stay connected:

  • Become a subscriber to my newsletter and encourage your friends and family to do the same. This is the easiest and safest way to make sure you’ll stay up to date on important health and environmental issues.
  • If you have any friends or relatives who are seriously interested in their health, share important articles with them and encourage them subscribe to our newsletter.
  • Nearly all major search engines except Yahoo! and Bing use Google as their primary engines, so if you use them, be sure to type mercola.com in your search query. This way, you will still find our deeply buried content. Remember, relevant Mercola.com articles will NOT show when you’re using a keyword search alone anymore.
  • Use the internal Mercola.com search engine when searching for articles on my site.

Why coffee affects metabolism

Many people struggle with obesity and being overweight. According to the CDC,1 the prevalence of both conditions was measured nationally in 2015-2016, finding 71.6% of the U.S. population were either overweight or obese. Although some corporations, like Coca-Cola2 propose you may out-exercise a poor diet, research has found it is a combination of a healthy diet and exercise that has the greatest benefit.3

In mid-2015 The New York Times4 reported on the activities of Global Energy Balance Network, a nonprofit organization funded by Coca-Cola to promote the argument that exercise is more important than diet. The organization disbanded by the end of the year.5

Weight loss and weight management is worth $66 billion each year according to a report in late 2017 by market research firm Marketdata, LLC.6 In their press release7 they reported that the number of active dieters had fallen by 10% since 2015. Some of the products used in the weight loss industry include diet pills, shakes and supplements, medical weight loss clinics, frozen entrees and online services.

There are several factors contributing to your ability to lose weight, including getting enough quality sleep each night,8 supporting a healthy gut microbiome9 and choosing to eat more whole food and less processed food.10 A recent study published in Scientific Reports11 has demonstrated coffee may affect your metabolism and mobilize metabolically active brown fat.

Study shows coffee stimulates brown fat

Brown adipose tissue (BAT) may generate heat (thermogenesis)12 and burn glucose and fats through a mitochondrial reaction mediated by mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1).13 Energy balance prevents the development of obesity, and while physical activity may dissipate some energy, the body also uses a system of thermogenesis, or the production of heat through the burning of energy.

Upregulation of UCP1 may reduce the potential for obesity and improve insulin sensitivity as it is one of the systems of thermogenesis in brown fat.14 In the Scientific Reports study, researchers looked at the effect of caffeine on BAT both in the test tube and in humans.

They wrote that past studies demonstrated the activation of BAT through nutrients or cold exposure. Caffeine demonstrated an upregulation of UCP1 in obese mice but the extent that it directly affected BAT in humans was not known. The researchers first used cells from mice and human bone marrow stem cells cultured in a test tube and then introduced caffeine.

Their analysis was performed using several tests, including mitochondrial staining, transmission electron microscopy and gene expression analysis. Next, nine healthy human volunteers with a mean body mass index of 23,15 within normal range,16 were engaged to participate. They either drank a caffeinated beverage or water and then remained sitting for 30 minutes.

The researchers found treatment of the cell cultures with caffeine increased the expression of UCP1. They also analyzed and compared the thermal imaging done 30 minutes after drinking the beverages against those done before.17

The images showed an increased temperature of BAT in the subclavicular area in adults after drinking coffee. This reflected an increase in heat production in BAT not demonstrated after drinking water.

Standard cup of coffee may help weight management

The Scientific Reports researchers said this is the first study to demonstrate caffeine’s stimulation on UCP1 in vitro that could be projected to the ingestion of caffeine by humans through a standard sized cup of coffee. Michael Symonds, Ph.D., from the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham, co-directed the study. As reported in a press release from the university, he commented:18

“From our previous work, we knew that brown fat is mainly located in the neck region, so we were able to image someone straight after they had a drink to see if the brown fat got hotter. The results were positive and we now need to ascertain that caffeine as one of the ingredients in the coffee is acting as the stimulus or if there’s another component helping with the activation of brown fat.”

The researchers believe this suggested that caffeine in a standard cup of coffee could increase the metabolic rate and enhance BAT function. They theorize this activity has the potential to contribute to weight loss. They wrote:19

“In conclusion, these results provide new complementary in vitro and in vivo evidence that caffeine (and a coffee beverage) can promote BAT function at doses compatible with human use.”

Daily coffee affects metabolism in multiple ways

New discoveries about coffee and the impact it has on health are reported frequently. Some reports state that caffeine helps you live longer,20 while others associate caffeine with increasing your potential risk to danger.21 It can be difficult to know what to believe.

In a study published by Northwestern Medicine,22 scientists discovered coffee changed significantly more metabolites in the body than had been known. After eating or drinking, your body produces metabolites, or chemicals. A higher number of affected metabolites may explain, in part, the number of effects coffee has on the body.

The researchers gathered 47 habitual coffee drinkers and ask them to stop drinking coffee for one month.23 In the following month the participants drank four cups of coffee each day and in the last month they drank eight cups of coffee each day. During the study, the researchers collected samples of their blood, evaluating for the number and type of metabolites.

They found that the levels of 115 metabolites were altered by drinking coffee, 82 of which were known to affect 33 biological pathways. They also discovered three novel links to coffee including steroid metabolites, fatty acid metabolism and the effect it had on the endocannabinoid system.24

Your body normally has cannabinoid receptors in the neurological system.25 The researchers found the neurotransmitters related to this system were reduced after drinking four to eight cups of coffee each day. The effect is opposite of what would be expected when cannabis is ingested.

The researchers point out the body’s endocannabinoid system regulates cognition, immunity, sleep, appetite and energy functions to name a few.26 Additionally, they found the metabolites related to the androsteroid system, suggesting to the researchers coffee may help eliminate steroids from the body.

This may help in cancers significantly affected by steroid levels. Lead author Marilyn Cornelis, Ph.D., assistant professor of preventive medicine, commented:27

“These are entirely new pathways by which coffee might affect health. Now we want to delve deeper and study how these changes affect the body. The increased coffee consumption over the two-month span of the trial may have created enough stress to trigger a decrease in metabolites in this system. It could be our bodies’ adaptation to try to get stress levels back to equilibrium.”

Regarding the association among coffee, weight loss and a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes, she said:28

“This is often thought to be due to caffeine’s ability to boost fat metabolism or the glucose-regulating effects of polyphenols (plant-derived chemicals). Our new findings linking coffee to endocannabinoids offer alternative explanations worthy of further study.”

Brown, beige or white?

Three different types of fat perform different functions in your body. Researchers in the featured study were interested in the effect caffeine would have on activating BAT, and thus increase thermogenesis and energy metabolism. Symonds commented:29

“Brown fat works in a different way to other fat in your body and produces heat by burning sugar and fat, often in response to cold. Increasing its activity improves blood sugar control as well as improving blood lipid levels and the extra calories burnt help with weight loss. However, until now, no one has found an acceptable way to stimulate its activity in humans.

This is the first study in humans to show that something like a cup of coffee can have a direct effect on our brown fat functions. The potential implications of our results are pretty big, as obesity is a major health concern for society and we also have a growing diabetes epidemic and brown fat could potentially be part of the solution in tackling them.”

The most common type of fat cells are white adipocytes, where excess energy is stored, increasing the risk of obesity. Overloading these cells leads to related conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.30 On the other side of the spectrum are brown adipocytes, which are thermogenically active31 and more prevalent in children than adults.32

Researchers have discovered white fat cells may be programmed to turn brown, but this programming is suppressed by the FLCN protein. The function to suppress brown fat programming is performed in cooperation with another pathway,33 which is active during cell processes, including tumor formation, insulin resistance and fat cell growth.34

That particular pathway, called mTOR, is activated by amino acids and insulin,35 as well as growth factors, which in turn help suppress brown fat programming.36 The conversion of white fat to BAT cells is known as “brite” or “beige” fat cells.

The body’s sympathetic nervous system is capable of doing this on a small scale but since white fat cells are connected to other organ systems, on a large scale within the body it is not possible.37 Scientists are experimenting with conversion of white fat outside the body to beige fat and then reintroducing to help fight obesity.38

Fat location makes a difference

Where fat is located on your body makes a difference to your health. White fat performs two important functions: It stores excess calories and releases hormones that control metabolism.39 Fat may be stored directly under the skin, called subcutaneous fat, or deep in the abdomen around your organs, called visceral fat.40

Subcutaneous fat is often found on the thighs and buttocks and does not usually cause as many problems as visceral. According to Harvard Health, 90% of body fat in most individuals is subcutaneous,41 which might be described as the fat you can pinch. It accumulates in the lower body, creating a pear shape.42

The remaining 10% is intra-abdominal or visceral fat, beneath the abdominal wall and surrounding your organs.43 This type of fat is strongly associated with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.44 In a study45 from the University of Illinois, researchers found a regulatory molecule produced a bodily response leading to higher amounts of visceral fat with increased caloric intake.46

Activate your brown fat stores

One way the mTOR pathway is stimulated is through excessive protein intake. This stimulation helps suppress white fat to BAT programming. To discover how to determine your optimal protein intake, see my article, “Precision Matters When It Comes to Protein.”

There are additional ways of activating your brown fat to burn more energy and convert some of your white fat to beige, also increasing thermogenesis, without drugs or surgery. Here are five additional strategies you may consider:

Exercise — In a study from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center,47 researchers found one reason exercise may boost metabolism is through increasing levels of a lipokine molecule that had been linked to cold temperatures in the past.48

? The researchers found the function of brown fat during exercise was to tell the muscle to use more fatty acids as fuel. They confirmed their results in an animal study during which they found lipokines after the mice exercised, but once BAT was removed from the mice there was no evidence of exercise-induced increase.

Cold — Several studies have demonstrated that exposure to cold temperatures increases glucose burning in brown fat and upregulates UCP1 proteins.49 It also increases BAT activation, reduces fat50 and changes mitochondria in skeletal muscle and BAT.51 Daily exposure increases the volume of BAT and the oxidative capacity.52

Sleep — One method53 studied to expose participants to a cool environment was to reduce the ambient temperature during sleep. Researchers engaged five men over four months. The participants did their regular activities during the day and then returned to their rooms each evening.

? The temperature in the room was set to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (F) during the first month, 66 F in the following two months, and 81 F in the final month. After one month of exposure to mild cold temperatures the researchers measured a 42% increase in BAT volume and 10% rise in metabolic activity in the participants.54

Zinc deficiency linked with gluten sensitivity

Scientists have been researching several aspects of celiac disease for decades, but in recent years, studies have revealed that adults with specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies, particularly low levels of zinc, are associated with gluten intolerance and the more serious form known as celiac disease.

Celiac disease, aka gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is the result of an immune reaction that takes place when genetically susceptible people ingest gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, oats and rye,1 according to a study2 published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

One in 141 people in the U.S. reportedly suffer from this condition,3 and its prevalence has increased over the past 50 years.4 Classic symptoms often include diarrhea, fatigue, anemia, weight loss and other problems. One of the first directives doctors give their patients is to explore going on a gluten-free diet.

The researchers in the Mayo Clinic journal article studied 309 men and women between January 1, 2000, and October 21, 2014, with an average age of just over 46, plus or minus 15.1 years. All had been tested and newly diagnosed with celiac. The featured study showed that among the celiac patients, age, sex and body mass index (BMI) and other factors were considered along with individual symptoms, but weight loss was a factor in only 25.2% of the cases.

But most importantly, while several of the noted micronutrients were low in each patient, the zinc deficiency eclipsed them all. In fact, 59.4% of the patients were found to be zinc deficient, and to varying but lesser degrees, deficiencies in the other nutrients, including copper. Dr. Adam Bledsoe, a gastroenterology fellow at Mayo Clinic’s Rochester campus and lead author of the study, noted in a Mayo Clinic news release:5

“It was somewhat surprising to see the frequency of micronutrient deficiencies in this group of newly diagnosed patients, given that they were presenting fewer symptoms of malabsorption …

Our study suggests that the presentation of celiac disease has changed from the classic weight loss, anemia and diarrhea, with increasing numbers of patients diagnosed with nonclassical symptoms.”

The authors concluded that at the time people are diagnosed with celiac disease, a micronutrient assessment, particularly on vitamin D, iron, folic acid and vitamin B12 (cobalamin), should take place, as those seem to go hand in hand with the condition.6

Issues surrounding gluten intolerance

The scientists were intrigued by the symptoms, such as fewer signs of malabsorption than had been prevalent in celiac patients in the past. On average, the subjects were also found to be overweight rather than exhibiting the low body weight and weight loss commonly characterized as a symptom.

Gluten sensitivity attacks the mucosa in your gut, which leads to inflammation. Over time, the inflammation wears away tiny nodules called villi in the small intestine’s lining, a condition known as villous atrophy, which prevents the absorption of zinc, as well as the other nutrients crucial for health. Very Well Health details the implications:7

“Villous atrophy occurs when your intestinal villi — the microscopic, finger-like tentacles that line the wall of your small intestine — erode away, leaving a virtually flat surface. Since your intestinal villi are responsible for absorbing the nutrients contained in the food you eat, losing them to villous atrophy can result in serious nutritional deficiencies.”

However, not every case of villous atrophy stems from celiac disease, nor does a wheat allergy. A disorder known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS),8 reportedly affecting an estimated 6% of people in the U.S., sometimes involves similar symptoms, such as Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)9 or problems resulting from H. pylori bacteria.10

However, celiac disease can lead to other serious disorders and disease, such as infertility, neurological disorders, other autoimmune disease, reduced bone density and even cancer.11 A 2016 study notes:12

“Interest of patients and physicians in celiac disease is growing worldwide, but without a corresponding increase in the awareness of the disease. Many patients are diagnosed as celiacs even without completing the whole diagnostic process, with consequent risk of misdiagnosis and delay in the evaluation of other diseases.”

It’s important to note that more than wheat, rye, oats and barley may contain gluten. Many processed foods may contain gluten that you’d never associate with those or other grains, including starches, flavorings and both hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) and texturized vegetable protein (TVP).

Additional studies on gluten sensitivity

Advances in Nutrition outlined the first case of zinc deficiency in the U.S. in 1969.13 The 21-year-old patient suffered from hypogammaglobulinemia (which prevents the immune system from making enough antibodies),14 hypogonadism (a testosterone deficiency),15 giardiasis (a diarrheal disease from a microscopic parasite),16 strongyloidosis (a nematode parasite infection),17 schistosomiasis or snail fever (caused by parasitic flatworms),18 and dwarfism.

Treatment with zinc supplements reportedly improved his growth and development.19 In the same study, in the case of a 2-year-old girl with severe acrodermatitis enteropathica, also known as primary zinc malabsorption syndrome, she was given a drug for the parasites and placed on a “lactose-deficient synthetic diet,” but didn’t improve. Finding her serum zinc concentration to be extremely low, they gave her zinc:

“Surprisingly, the skin lesions and gastrointestinal symptoms cleared after zinc supplementation. When zinc was inadvertently omitted from the child’s regimen, the child suffered a relapse; however, she again completely responded to oral zinc therapy. The authors attributed zinc deficiency to the synthetic diet that the patient received.

The authors, however, soon realized that zinc might have been fundamental to the pathogenesis of this rare inherited disorder and that the clinical improvement reflected correction of the zinc status in the patient. This original observation was quickly confirmed in other patients with acrodermatitis enteropathica (AE) throughout the world.”20

Authors of the featured study noted that copper deficiencies have had a history of coinciding with neurological symptoms. In another Mayo Clinic study in 2014, nine of 44 patients with celiac disease also had neurological symptoms, leading researchers to attribute celiac as the cause.21 The findings are consistent with similar studies around the world, according to the featured study:22

  • A study in Italy on more than 1,000 celiac patients — adults and children older than 14 years of age — found that 50% of them had a shortage of ferritin, a blood cell protein containing iron, and 73.8 were low in folate, “correlating these results with the degree of villous atrophy.”
  • In Denmark, another study of 93 adults with celiac disease found that 30% of the patients were anemic, 40% were low in iron, 17% were deficient in vitamin B12, 33% were low in vitamin D, 20% of them were low in folate, and 51 had a serum zinc deficiency.
  • Among 37 newly diagnosed adults participating in a Finnish study, 32% of the patients were anemic, 37% had low erythrocyte folate (also called low red blood cell folate or RBC), 16.2% were low in vitamin B12 and 35% were low in ferritin.

About zinc: You need it, but your body can’t make it

Zinc is the second most abundant trace mineral in your body.23 As important as zinc is, your body can’t store it; it must be consumed daily. It’s essential for the proper function of over 100 enzymes in your body, relating to your brain, bones, kidneys, liver, pancreas and muscle development.

Besides supporting your immune system,24 zinc is important for healing wounds and numerous other functions, including “energy metabolism, hemoglobin production, carbon dioxide transport, prostaglandin function, synthesis of collagen, protein synthesis and vitamin A metabolism.”25 Several symptoms point to a zinc-deficient condition,26 including:

Low energy

Nervousness

Depression

Impaired taste and smell

Problems adjusting to light

Skin rashes, acne

White spots in fingernails

Thinning hair/ baldness

Slow wound healing

Frequent infection

Male infertility

Anemia

The National Institutes of Health27 lists 22 of the highest sources of zinc sourced from food, with 3 ounces of cooked oysters providing by far the greatest amount with 74 milligrams or 493% of the dietary reference intake (DRI). In the same amounts, beef chuck roast offers 47% of the DRI; and Alaskan king crab nets 43% of the DRI.

However, if you’re very low in zinc, supplementation may be a wiser course until your stores rise to a sustainable level. Zinc deficiency is a worldwide problem, particularly in developing countries, mainly because many people generally ingest less than 10 milligrams (mg) per day,28 when zinc requirements for adult women are 8 to 12 mg per day, depending on your age and whether you are pregnant or lactating, and for men, 11 mg per day.29

One study asserts that babies, children and adolescents, as well as pregnant and lactating women, have increased requirements for zinc compared to most adults, which makes zinc depletion more of a risk, and further, “zinc deficiency during growth periods results in growth failure.”30

If your zinc is low, recover it quickly

While there have been innumerable cases of gluten sensitivity misdiagnosis, it’s clear that if your zinc levels are deficient, raising them quickly is key to avoiding several of the physical problems associated with the condition. Even a mild zinc deficiency can seriously alter your immune system and, with it, your entire body.

Vegetarians are at particular risk because of the absence of meat, which offers high amounts of bioavailable zinc. In addition, though, vegetarians generally consume a lot of beans and whole grains, and both raise lectins while binding zinc and slowing its absorption.31

Because few plants contain zinc, and absorption is often limited, vegetarians may need to consider taking one-and-a-half times the amount suggested for adults. One study notes, “The requirement for dietary zinc may be as much as 50 percent greater for vegetarians whose major food staples are grains and legumes.”32 In addition:

“If you are newly diagnosed celiac disease you will probably need to supplement with a higher amount of zinc until your levels get up and you are better absorbing nutrients again. Work with your nutritionist to determine how much you might need.”33

David Wilcock NEW ARTICLE 7-7-19… “IT BEGINS: Epstein Indicted [arrested, actually], Black-Ops Mega-Base Destroyed!”

[Kp update: I’ve added several more highlights, and a link to the text only version of the article.]

Well, here we go. David picked up with all of this recent Epstein stuff right away. It’s a full article. I’m posting the first few paragraphs with links, but after the link to David’s book, it’s all text. I’ll highlight a couple things quickly, but I wanted to get this out right away. I may add highlights after the initial posting.

For safekeeping, I’ve downloaded the page for safekeeping. Download as Text only; HTML only; Complete Web page (zip folder)

Highlights
“IT’S TRUE: Jeffrey Epstein has actually been arrested. Indictments have been unsealed. This is the case that will bring down the House of Cards. Everything we just prognosticated in DECLAS is coming true. Big Tech knew this was coming, and has grossly restricted freedom of speech online as a result.

“The California Independence Day earthquakes may have been strikes intended to take out the Deep State’s last, best chemtrail-attack facilities, as we will see. The Deep State may have intended to usese the facilities in a final attempt to destroy America right before the indictments unseal.

“Look. It’s very simple. These quakes destroyed a gigantic military base. No one can stay there except for “Mission Essential Personnel” to assess the damage. It is entirely possible that the Deep State was preparing some devastating, final attack against America from this China Lake base. Think about it… this is one of the main military centers in America for air-based weapons, and that’s just the unclassified part. The more-classified part is that this facility may have been a key center for chemtrail operations.

“The first quake was suspicious enough. It was a whopping 6.4, the biggest in Southern California since Northridge in 1994 — 25 years — and it literally happened on Independence Day. This is the day in which America celebrates her freedom. It is the ideal day for the Alliance to do something that will later be noteworthy.

“WHAT IF IT WAS THE ALLIANCE?… One possible speculation is that this quake was an Alliance strike against a massive above-ground and likely underground base in the China Lake area. We have heard about many other quakes that were visible indications of attacks against underground military facilities engaged in nefarious activities.

“A VERY SPECIAL DAY TO END THE WAR… It would certainly be appropriate and timely if the final strike that won the insider war against the Deep State was carried out on Independence Day… It is also possible that the second, larger 7.1 quake the next day, on Friday the 5th, may have been needed to finish the job.

“We have no briefings one way or another on this yet, but the correlation and timing of these events is very compelling… It is entirely possible that the Deep State was preparing some devastating, final attack against America from this China Lake base.

“Our briefings do indicate that the Alliance now has control of the majority of all the earthquake- and storm-making technology, and has since last year’s infamous 11/11 incident.

“REVIEWING THE 11/11 [2018] QUAKE… Now that we’ve seen some suitably disturbing data about the China Lake facility, let’s explore the idea that the Alliance may have been able to conduct a strike against it, using earthquakes. The big “reveal” that the Alliance could control earthquakes occurred with a very suspicious event on November 11th, 2018… “Strange Worldwide Earthquake Pulses Repeated Every 17 Seconds

“WHAT IS THE SEVENTEENTH LETTER OF THE ALPHABET? We were told that the Alliance used newly-acquired Deep State satellites to pulse this long series of 17-second quakes through the earth. This precision of rhythm and wave shape seemed impossible, but it happened. If it went on for 20 minutes, that’s [20×60=] 1200 seconds. Divide that by 17 and you get about SEVENTY different pulses, seventeen seconds apart. The seventeenth letter of the alphabet…. is Q.

“THE DEEP STATE HAS LOST ALMOST EVERYTHING… This 17-second pulsing “Q-Quake” seemed to be the Alliance’s first major action after taking over the weather-control satellites, as they had indicated in preceding Q posts.

“THUS BEGINS THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF CARDS… With all the people who went to Epstein’s island, you’d better believe this arrest is a “kill shot” for the Deep State — and they know it. Thus begins the fall of the House of Cards. Is this all a coincidence?

“If you don’t ‘get’ how important this arrest is, just look at the following Tweet:

“Alex Salvi @alexsalvinews… The judge who unsealed the #Epstein documents said the public’s right to access case information outweighed the privacy of individuals, including: •Prominent American politicians •Powerful business executives •Foreign presidents •Prominent Prime Minister •Other world leaders”

“ZERO HEDGE GETS EVEN MORE DIRECT: IT’S CLINTON, STUPID… In their classic and fearless manner, Zero Hedge went for it. If Epstein is arrested — and he just was — the Clintons and the Deep State go down with him

[Last bit from David] “As one last tidbit, we were getting insider briefings to expect “something big” this past week, but then nothing happened. Saturday, however, we were not disappointed. The arrest of Epstein may have been delayed by him delaying his own departure from his vacation. This, in turn, may have synchronistically led to the possible China Lake earthquake strike being conducted on Independence Day.

History is in the making. These are very exciting times.… I must admit I have never been more excited about anything in my entire life.

History is in the making. Disclosure is coming. GET READY.

IT BEGINS: Epstein Indicted, Black-Ops Mega-Base Destroyed!

IT’S TRUE: Jeffrey Epstein has actually been arrested. Indictments have been unsealed. This is the case that will bring down the House of Cards.

Everything we just prognosticated in DECLAS is coming true. Big Tech knew this was coming, and has grossly restricted freedom of speech online as a result.

What independent YouTube creator WOULDN’T want to talk about the biggest story of the year, which may soon become the story of the millennium?

Get ready for a TORRENT of new information coming out that none of us could possibly have foreseen. This is it. DECLAS is happening!

The California Independence Day earthquakes may have been strikes intended to take out the Deep State’s last, best chemtrail-attack facilities, as we will see.

The Deep State may have intended to usese the facilities in a final attempt to destroy America right before the indictments unseal.

Mass censorship won’t stop this Truth Avalanche from falling. We are just now seeing the first pebbles… and we probably won’t need to wait very long.

VERY EXCITING, HAD TO TAKE SOME TIME OFF FOR THIS

Once I got our epic, 53,000-word DECLAS Ebook done, I immediately plunged into finishing Awakening in the Dream, for its imminent release this December 3rd.

And I have to say, I am having a fantastic time with this creative process. A true spiritual renaissance. The best I’ve felt in many years!

Awakening has gone much better than I could have even hoped, and will probably be seen as my most important and noteworthy book of all.

We are going FAR deeper into the spiritual arena than any of the previous volumes, blending science, philosophy, synchronicity, prophecy, the Law of One, Ascension, Secret Space Program, Disclosure, the Solar Flash, etc… but alas, I digress.

Please note that only hardcover orders count towards getting us on the New York Times Best-Seller List. You can pre-order now and lock in a lower price of around 20 bucks!

We need to clear about a thousand more to make it likely that we will hit the list, unless we get suppressed… so this is a great way to help us out. And it will be well worth it!

On 9/11, my father refused to go home until he had finished the article he was writing, regardless of what disasters may have been happening to New York State and the United States right outside his door.

In a mode like this, where I have cleared 100 percent of my time to write and am on a very strict deadline and solo retreat, any breaking news would have to be God-damned amazing for me to cover it.

This is that breaking news, my friend.

Texts, emails and you name it came slamming in. This is real. This is happening. This is NOW.

ARE THE EARTHQUAKES AT ALL RELEVANT?

Epstein’s arrest story first went up yesterday, July 6th, 2019.

This was only ONE day after the second, very disturbing Los Angeles earthquake that I endured while deeply engaged in this mystical writing process.

Both the first and the second quakes were not at all random for me. Some part of me was very aware of what was going to happen.

That doesn’t change the fact that both of them really freaked me out, and particularly the second one, which felt a lot more violent.

The July 4th quake happened just one paragraph after I wrote about the earth being dynamited and the ground shaking in Rosendale, New York. This was where I lived when the contacts described in the book began in 1996.

These dynamite explosions were used to mine the cement that launched the Industrial Revolution. Rosendale was the “Womb of America.”

This was such a powerful synchronicity that I wrote it right into the book after it happened, in what is currently Chapter Six, Page 127.

THE SECOND QUAKE

The second quake occurred on my mother’s birthday, the next day, July 5th.

I had severe eyestrain and had decided to lie in bed and meditate deeply after dinner. This was very abnormal behavior for me.

A dog had been going super crazy outside for at least ten minutes, shrieking like a pack of coyotes. Jesus! Then it finally stopped. In relief, I decided to lie down and rest.

Just five minutes after I got comfortable and began a deep meditation, IT began.

I actually heard the shockwave before feeling it, which was extremely intense.

The sound was like a huge roar, similar to a massive bowling ball in a lane, heading due south. It appeared to be going about 1000 miles an hour. It was so fast.

At the moment this very fast sound hit the house, WHOMP — a painting in my bathroom slammed against the wall. OK, that was definitely real. Uh-oh.

About four seconds later, everything started shaking like mad. I quickly realized this was not a meditative experience, but was very, very real. It kept getting worse. And before long I got the hell out of there.

SYNCHRONICITIES AND DREAMS

Let’s be clear that for someone living in Los Angeles, having a smaller quake and then a larger quake 24 hours later is very, very troubling.

As I was lying there on my bed, and it kept getting worse and worse, I didn’t know at first if I was about to die. That is a very humbling experience.

That same morning, I had a dream about being on the top of a building that completely fell over. I was able to just step off of the roof onto the pavement safely. And I was indeed safe in this real-world quake.

I found out later on that a prominent friend of mine had texted me one minute before the quake began, for the first time since January.

In a subsequent text from late that same night, he revealed that he had just finished watching an episode of my show about how our consciousness influences earthquakes.

He had texted me to talk about my show, at 8:18 PM. Just one minute later, that’s when the second quake happened.

Hopefully I can get his permission in the future to discuss this story in more detail. We will see. It was mind-blowing!

THE INDEPENDENCE DAY QUAKE?

The first quake was suspicious enough.

It was a whopping 6.4, the biggest in Southern California since Northridge in 1994 — 25 years — and it literally happened on Independence Day.

This is the day in which America celebrates her freedom. It is the ideal day for the Alliance to do something that will later be noteworthy.

Once you have the classified information in hand, you no longer see all earthquakes as simply “natural events.”

The technology most definitely exists to produce earthquakes. It involves microwaving a fault line and melting the crust until it slips.

Some, but certainly not all of the earthquakes in today’s world will be deliberately generated.

So, when we see the biggest shaking in Los Angeles for 25 years, and it lands right on July 4th, that certainly becomes… interesting.

WHAT IF IT WAS THE ALLIANCE?

One possible speculation is that this quake was an Alliance strike against a massive above-ground and likely underground base in the China Lake area.

We have heard about many other quakes that were visible indications of attacks against underground military facilities engaged in nefarious activities.

If you are new to this aspect of our work, start out with Disclosure Imminent? Two Underground NWO Bases Destroyed from September 17, 2011, currently with over a million views.

Then click the following links to read Part Two, and then Divine Intervention from May 9, 2012, for critical additional context and data.

A VERY SPECIAL DAY TO END THE WAR

It would certainly be appropriate and timely if the final strike that won the insider war against the Deep State was carried out on Independence Day.

This, of course, is the day where we celebrate America’s freedom from tyranny here in the US.

The Alliance may intend to tell us all of this in a post-Disclosure society, making the news all the more interesting once we get there.

It is also possible that the second, larger 7.1 quake the next day, on Friday the 5th, may have been needed to finish the job.

The initial July 4th strike may not have adequately solved the problem by wiping out the China Lake bases, if that’s indeed what was intended.

There have apparently been many strikes like these that have destroyed various underground bases in this “shadow World War III.”

The epicenter of the second quake was only 12 miles away from the first one. China Lake’s own site says the combination of these two quakes wiped out their facilities.

THE CORRELATION IS UNDENIABLE

Even on the surface, we know that great destruction was done to this GIGANTIC Naval Air Weapons installation at China Lake.

How gigantic? Bigger than the state of Rhode Island. Fully 85 percent of the Navy’s entire testing area for weapons systems on land!

We will have a quote that proves this in the next paragraph section below.

As many insiders have revealed, underground bases almost always have a physical location on the surface that some personnel access them through.

With a base this gigantic, there would be absolutely no way for civilians to know where all those soldiers are actually working.

NOW LET’S READ ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF THE BASE

Although the Navy has a significant majority of Alliance components, nothing in today’s world is 100 percent.

We are about to see that whistleblowers have already indicated that at least parts of this base were up to no good.

Before we get there, it is very important for you to see just how massive the damage was to this utterly gigantic military base from these two earthquakes.

Check it out:

7/6: Earthquakes Knock Out Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake
https://taskandpurpose.com/earthquakes-knock-out-naval-air-weapons-station-china-lake-non-essential-personnel-evacuate

The Navy’s massive base in China Lake, California, has ordered an evacuation for non-essential personnel after recent earthquakes have rendered the installation “not mission capable,” a message posted on the base’s Facebook page says.

“Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake is responding to a 5.0 magnitude earthquake at 8:16 p.m., and a 7.1 magnitude earthquake at 8:19 p.m. Pacific time and multiple, consistent aftershocks on July 5 following a 6.4 magnitude earthquake and numerous aftershocks on July 4,” the message says.

“NAWS China Lake is not mission capable until further notice; however, security protocols remain in effect. Safety of personnel is currently the highest priority.”

Accordingly, the commander of Navy Region Southwest has authorized non-essential active-duty service members, drilling reservists, civilian employees, and military dependents to evacuate to Naval Base Ventura County, California, the message says.

Base personnel who are evacuating can receive more information by calling a Family Information Call Center at 1-844-523-2025.

“NAWS China Lake access remains Mission Essential Personnel only,” the Facebook message says. “Do NOT attempt to access the Installation unless you are Mission Essential Personnel.”

Located in the Mojave Desert about 150 miles north of Los Angeles, the sprawling installation covers more than 1.1 million acres, which is larger than the state of Rhode Island, according to the base’s website.

The installation contains 85 percent of the land that the Navy uses for the research, development, acquisition, testing, and evaluation of weapons systems.

IT IS VERY COMPELLING TO SPECULATE

We have no briefings one way or another on this yet, but the correlation and timing of these events is very compelling, if not obvious.

Look. It’s very simple. These quakes destroyed a gigantic military base. No one can stay there except for “Mission Essential Personnel” to assess the damage.

It is entirely possible that the Deep State was preparing some devastating, final attack against America from this China Lake base.

Think about it… this is one of the main military centers in America for air-based weapons, and that’s just the unclassified part.

The more-classified part is that this facility may have been a key center for chemtrail operations.

Yes.

CHEMTRAILS WERE ONE OF THE ONLY ATTACK WEAPONS LEFT

Our briefings had already indicated that one of the only covert “war toys” the Deep State still had left to fight with was a certain number of chemtrail planes.

Based on the insider testimony you are about to read, those planes may very well have been stored at China Lake.

Now the runways are devastated and the planes cannot take off. The planes themselves may have been wiped out by falling debris.

I could definitely see the Deep State doing a lethal aerosol attack from this base… as soon as DECLAS began, and top SatanicDiddlers(TM) started getting arrested.

In the case of an attack like this, whatever gets sprayed on us from these planes might be very different from “normal” chemtrails.

God only knows what they could think up. Consider Michael Crichton’s classic 1969 thriller, The Andromeda Strain.

Diseases, airborne pathogens, chemicals that induce mass hysteria, hallucinogens, nanites, you name it.

NOW LET’S READ FROM THE WHISTLEBLOWER

Additional, valuable data comes to us from Anthony Etienne Jaime, in a very interesting whistleblower article from December 1st, 2014.

The article is quite lengthy and you should read the whole thing.

Here is a brief synopsis of Jaime’s credentials as a whistleblower:

12/1/14: China Lake Weather Modification: The Secret City

Weather Mod & China Lake Connection: Part 1 – The Secret City

“I am a former employee of the China Lake Naval Weapons Center (NWC) as it was known when I worked there.

“During my time there, which spanned nearly 9 years beginning in 1973 and ending in 1982, I was employed in several different capacities.

“I started off as an apprentice electrician in the Public Works Department in 1973 and after completing the program and making journeyman, I wound up transferring to the Range Department and the Supersonic Naval Ordinance Research Track or SNORT, as it is commonly known.

“After leaving the base for a brief time in 1979, I returned to the Public Works Department as a power lineman in the high-voltage shop before leaving civil service again for good in 1982.

“All of these jobs afforded me plenty of opportunities to travel all over the base in the performance of my duties.

“In addition, I spent nearly 30 years working out of I.B.E.W. Local 428 in Bakersfield, Ca., including many DoD projects at China Lake, Edwards AFBFTC, Vandenberg, and spent several months working in the extremely secret and much speculated upon Northrup Tejon Ranch RCS facility located in the Tehachapi Mountains west of Rosamond, Ca.”

CONSIDER THE LOCATION

Before we go on, remember that the China Lake base is close to Edwards and Nellis, both notorious for their underground cities — such as the infamous Area 51.

In this map it is listed as NAWS China Lake:

THE CHINA LAKE WHISTLEBLOWER

Now let’s read just a bit from this fascinating site, and you will soon see how deep the rabbit hole goes:

12/1/14: China Lake Weather Modification: The Secret City

Weather Mod & China Lake Connection: Part 1 – The Secret City

My journey began in the early morning hours of July 30th, 2012, with a UFO sighting that took place over the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station in California that lasted for several hours.

[This] led to continued UFO sightings and other strange sights in the sky for the next three days, including witnessing what I now believe to have been a full-on holographic demonstration of Project Bluebeam.

After overcoming my initial sense of shock and disbelief, I became completely engrossed in a search to find rational explanations for the strange sights I was seeing in the sky.

At that particular point in time I had never heard of a chemtrail or many of the other terms I was to become so familiar with, but that was rapidly to change.

Already, we are seeing UFOs and chemtrails here. This is looking very interesting indeed.

MANY UFO SIGHTINGS AND A CHEMTRAIL CONNECTION

Now let’s read from another section of this fascinating insider testimonial:

12/1/14: China Lake Weather Modification: The Secret City

Weather Mod & China Lake Connection: Part 1 – The Secret City

As I struggled to wrap my mind around the incredible sights I was seeing in the skies, I compiled a short list of possible causes, but I kept coming back to the Navy and the China Lake base as the most likely explanation.

The top three possibilities of that list were: 1) government research with military applications; 2) ET really is here; 3) a combination of 1 & 2, which is still my favorite theory.

Over time, my personal observations and experiences have allowed me, along with a great many other people who were accompanying me, to witness an incredible assortment of extraordinary sights in many different locations.

The one constant throughout my journey to date has been my proximity to the Naval Air Weapons Station at China Lake, California, which in turn is in close proximity to a large number of other related military facilities that I believe also play a role in what we are witnessing in our skies.

While many of us may hear some the names of some bases mentioned frequently, far too few really know or understand what goes on behind those closed gates.

I believe that it is through understanding what role these bases play that we will come to a much fuller understanding of the nature of the Chemtrail phenomenon and what is occurring in the skies.

The majority of activists documenting Chemtrails are looking up in an effort to understand what we are seeing, but let me assure you that there is most definitely a terrestrial connection to ground-based facilities.

Our briefings do indicate that the Alliance now has control of the majority of all the earthquake- and storm-making technology, and has since last year’s infamous 11/11 incident.

We will cover this story in just a minute, as it provides extremely valuable context.

For now, we will continue with the “China Lake Dossier.”

WEATHER MODIFICATION AND HIDDEN LAND

In this next excerpt, Jaime gets into more detail about the weather modification connection to China Lake, and how it is all being done on publicly-restricted land:

12/1/14: China Lake Weather Modification: The Secret City

Weather Mod & China Lake Connection: Part 1 – The Secret City

As previously mentioned, China Lake is an enormous facility, most of which is comprised of sparse, unpopulated tracts of desolate desert.

In the eyes of the visionaries who chose this location, [it is] perfectly suited for testing a wide variety of naval ordinance and weapons.

[This includes] missiles, propellants, and bombs, with the list growing to include radar cross-section testing, electronic counter-measures, laser/optics research and testing, aircraft survivability, ejection seats testing, and also weather modification….

Another facet to consider is that while many people have their attention focused on bases like AREA 51, there are activities occurring at China Lake, hidden in plain sight, which go unnoticed because of that fact.

Additionally, there is the BLM, which has closed off large tracts of public lands from vehicle traffic, ostensibly to preserve wilderness areas from encroachment by the public.

However, from my experience, it is my opinion that the BLM serves as a plausibly benign first line of security by keeping prying public eyes to a minimum, since foot traffic only is allowed in some of the rugged areas of public land adjacent to the base — where I believe testing or other activities are occurring.

THE CHEMTRAIL CONNECTION

In this next quote, Jaime reveals that within the known world of weather modification disclosure, there is a clear connection to China Lake:

12/1/14: China Lake Weather Modification: The Secret City

Weather Mod & China Lake Connection: Part 1 – The Secret City

I would like to bring the focus back to chemtrails and weather modification programs.

It is hard to believe now that I failed to make the connections, but so many things that seemed to just be loose threads with no connectivity were right there in front of me for a long time.

The first big indicator for me was the regular increase in lightning storms during the summer months of July and August, beginning around 1998.

They always occurred over the base in the northeastern mountain ranges surrounding the valley here, and much of it was point-to-point lighting and not ground strikes.

In addition, while there was a lot of lightning, there was very little thunder or rainfall.

During the early years of my life, earthquakes were far more common here than lighting storms, and these lightning storms were something new.

The odd storm or two might have gone unnoticed, but when they began to occur with such frequency over a long period of time, I began to notice the change.

The weather seemed to be just a little out of the ordinary, but nothing I could really put my finger on, and the words “climate change” had not yet gained much traction in the public’s or my own perception.

Also, during my early years I can remember the Navy’s Hurricane Hunter Squadron flying in and out of China Lake on a fairly frequent basis, which would seem to be a little out of their normal area of operation.

And from my years of employment aboard China Lake, I can remember the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department, which was headed up by Dr. Pierre St. Amand, an individual whose name is frequently mentioned in regard to the development of military weather modification efforts.

[St. Amand is] most notably [linked to] Project Popeye and Operation Stormfury.

Dr. Pierre St. Amand

[This] explains the Hurricane Hunters coming to China Lake, since that project involved attempting to lessen the strength of hurricanes.

Project Popeye, the first wartime military weather modification operation, took place during the Vietnam War.

[This] was Dr. St. Amand’s brainchild, and really began the pursuit of weather modification as a weapon by the military.

And ironically enough, in both 1982 and 1984, there was some extremely bad flooding that occurred at China Lake that did some major damage to the facilities there.

Since I was working there in 1982, and was the temporary foreman of the high voltage shop, my hands were full directing crews that were restoring power to facilities all over the base that had been damaged by the flooding.

In the years since then, I have been informed by more than a few friends that the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department was experimenting with cloud seeding and it got away from them, causing those floods.

Another individual that played an integral role in China Lake’s development of Project Popeye was Ben Livingston.

[His] interview with Alex Jones regarding weather modification can be viewed in this video, The Father of Weaponized Weather:

This was just Part One. In Part Two, which was released just two weeks later on December 15th, 2014, Jaime went even deeper.

ON TO PART TWO OF THE “CHINA LAKE DOSSIER”

Now we will continue with just a few brief excerpts from the very lengthy, detailed and fascinating Part Two installment, documenting China Lake’s extensive involvement with weather modification:

12/15/14: Connecting the Dots on Weather Mod and China Lake, Part II

Connecting the Dots on Weather Mod and China Lake PART II

Yet another historical link between China Lake and weather modification efforts is provided by the China Lake Museum’s reference to the CHINA LAKE WEAPONS DIGEST, and its description of “The Cold Cloud Modification System, successfully used in cold-fog mitigation;

“China Lake was for many years a world leader in weather modification for drought relief (GROMET), hurricane abatement (Cyclops, Stormfury), fog abatement (Foggy Cloud), and rainfall enhancement for military purposes (Project Popeye).” 22

Photo of Cold Cloud Modification System

Based upon the foregoing evidence and historical background, it should be patently clear that the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station has a demonstrated connection to military weather modification efforts, and that these are programs the government has been working on for decades.

The above link to Cold Cloud on China Lake’s own museum site was, of course, deleted… but thanks to the magic of Archive.org, here it is. Check it out, it is fascinating:

https://web.archive.org/web/20101203205852/http://www.chinalakemuseum.org/history/overview_pages/coldcloud.html

Although a Part 3 was teased at the end of Part 2, it does not appear to have ever been written… but what we already have here is more than enough.

REVIEWING THE 11/11 QUAKE

Now that we’ve seen some suitably disturbing data about the China Lake facility, let’s explore the idea that the Alliance may have been able to conduct a strike against it, using earthquakes.

The big “reveal” that the Alliance could control earthquakes occurred with a very suspicious event on November 11th, 2018.

First of all, the date of 11/11 is a “numerical synchronicity.” Fans of Q and the Alliance are often looking for these types of repeating numbers in Q posts.

Read for yourself. No one can cover up how strange this worldwide earthquake was:

11/28: Strange Worldwide Earthquake Pulses Repeated Every 17 Seconds
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2018/11/strange-earthquake-waves-rippled-around-world-earth-geology/

On the morning of November 11, just before 9:30 UT, a mysterious rumble rolled around the world.

The seismic waves began roughly 15 miles off the shores of Mayotte, a French island sandwiched between Africa and the northern tip of Madagascar.

The waves buzzed across Africa, ringing sensors in Zambia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. They traversed vast oceans, humming across Chile, New Zealand, Canada, and even Hawaii nearly 11,000 miles away.

These waves didn’t just zip by; they rang for more than 20 minutes. And yet, it seems, no human felt them.

Only one person noticed the odd signal on the U.S. Geological Survey’s real-time seismogram displays. An earthquake enthusiast who uses the handle @matarikipax saw the curious zigzags and posted images of them to Twitter.

That small action kicked off another ripple of sorts, as researchers around the world attempted to suss out the source of the waves. Was it a meteor strike? A submarine volcano eruption? An ancient sea monster rising from the deep?

“I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it,” says Göran Ekström, a seismologist at Columbia University who specializes in unusual earthquakes.

“It doesn’t mean that, in the end, the cause of them is that exotic,” he notes. Yet many features of the waves are remarkably weird—from their surprisingly monotone, low-frequency “ring” to their global spread. And researchers are still chasing down the geologic conundrum.

Why are the low-frequency waves so weird?
In a normal earthquake, the built-up tensions in Earth’s crust release with a jolt in mere seconds. This sends out a series of waves known as a “wave train” that radiates from the point of the rupture, explains Stephen Hicks, a seismologist at the University of Southampton….

However, there was no big earthquake kicking off the recent slow waves. Adding to the weirdness, Mayotte’s mystery waves are what scientists call monochromatic.

Most earthquakes send out waves with a slew of different frequencies, but Mayotte’s signal was a clean zigzag dominated by one type of wave that took a steady 17 seconds to repeat.

“It’s like you have colored glasses and [are] just seeing red or something,” says Anthony Lomax, an independent seismology consultant.

ANOTHER ARTICLE ON THE 17-SECOND PULSE FROM THE NEXT DAY

A day after this very mysterious National Geographic article came out, other follow-ups appeared, like this notable one from Bustle:

11/29: Unusual Seismic Waves Shook Earth On 11/11, Scientists Still Don’t Know Why
https://www.bustle.com/p/unusual-seismic-waves-shook-the-earth-on-nov-11-scientists-still-dont-completely-know-why-13221267

For 20 minutes on Nov. 11, 2018, strange seismic waves reverberated around the Earth for nearly 11,000 miles — and we have no idea what they were.

No one felt them; nothing was destroyed by them; if it wasn’t for the data collected by various tools and sensors around the world, we might never even have known they had happened.

Scientists are hard at work unraveling the mystery as we speak — and they’re starting to have some idea of what might be going on, so it’s perhaps not quite fair to say that “we have no idea what they were” anymore — but the work is ongoing.

I love a good weird science mystery, so let’s take a look, shall we?

Many factors combine to make these seismic waves exceptional.

First, there’s the distance they traveled: The Earth’s circumference measures not quite 25,000 miles; with the waves covering 11,000 miles, they literally stretched almost halfway around the world.

Then, there’s their regularity: Whereas a typical earthquake would have produced waves of many different frequencies, these waves were “monochromatic,” consisting of one shape — what National Geographic described as “a clean zigzag” — repeated at regular intervals of 17 seconds.

As volcanologist Helen Robinson, a PhD candidate at the University of Glasgow, put it to the Independent, “They’re too nice.”

WHAT IS THE SEVENTEENTH LETTER OF THE ALPHABET?

We were told that the Alliance used newly-acquired Deep State satellites to pulse this long series of 17-second quakes through the earth.

This precision of rhythm and wave shape seemed impossible, but it happened.

If it went on for 20 minutes, that’s [20×60=] 1200 seconds. Divide that by 17 and you get about SEVENTY different pulses, seventeen seconds apart.

The seventeenth letter of the alphabet…. is Q.

This was one of the most interesting and controversial “Q Proofs” of all.

In case they did 71 different pulses instead of 70, which is fully plausible, that would be another “17” in reverse.

[Please make sure you have read DECLAS in order to fully understand this context.]

THE MEGA-QUAKE ORIGINATED BELOW THE “ISLAND OF DEATH”

We can also look at the name of the island where the quakes began for further possible clues, since this appears to have been done deliberately:

The Word “Mayotte” Means “Island of Death”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayotte

The name is believed to come from Mawuti, contraction of the Arabic ????? ????? Jaz?rat al-Mawt – meaning “island of death” (maybe due to the dangerous reefs circling the island) and corrupted to Mayotta in Portuguese, later turned into French.

The Alliance may have chosen to start this worldwide earthquake from the “Island of Death” to send a message to the Deep State….

Time’s up.

It is also possible that there was a huge underground base there, like Diego Garcia, which is also in the Indian Ocean. We have had many insider briefings about that base.

THE DEEP STATE HAS LOST ALMOST EVERYTHING

This 17-second pulsing “Q-Quake” seemed to be the Alliance’s first major action after taking over the weather-control satellites, as they had indicated in preceding Q posts.

[This September 8th article, Stunning New Briefings: Spy Satellites Down, Deep State Arrests Imminent? was our biggest ever, with currently over 4.4 million views.]

IF YOU THINK THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE….

Anyone who thinks ‘We’ don’t have the technology to create natural disasters through pulsed microwave beams is not paying attention.

Just because a technology is highly classified doesn’t mean it is fake. This is very, very real. The heat of powerful microwave beams can push clouds around or melt crust inside a fault line.

We have heard in briefings that the Deep State is far less likely to be able to do any strikes like this now. They have lost almost all of their ‘toys’ already.

Now we have a working theory. The Alliance may have struck China Lake right before it was set to unleash chaos when the indictments unseal — and the BIG arrests begin.

If so, it seems very likely that the Deep State never anticipated an attack this massive in the midst of this “Shadow World War III,” but look — China Lake is gone. Toast. The entire base.

Is there any other evidence to support this theory? Are there any weird hints that something big is about to happen? Absolutely.

POTUS GIVES VERY FASCINATING ‘CLUES’ ON THE SAME DAY AS THE SECOND CHINA LAKE QUAKE

At this point, we are still on July 5th. This was the day that the second and larger quake hit us as I laid there meditating in bed.

Very importantly, the China Lake Quake hit just one day BEFORE the all-important Jeffrey Epstein arrest occurred.

I was actually on my Iphone, reading about the second quake I just got through in the Daddy Chair, after heading downstairs.

Then I ‘accidentally’ clicked on the following article, which I hadn’t even seen (emphasis added):

7/5: Trump Gives Mysterious Warning of Events Happening in Two Weeks
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7218343/Trump-deepens-mystery-Mike-Pence-canceled-trip-New-Hampshire.html

President Trump deepened the mystery of why Vice President Mike Pence abruptly canceled a trip to New Hampshire

Trump said there was ‘a very interesting problem’ in the state and that all would be revealed in the next week or two

‘I can’t tell you about it,’ Trump said. ‘But it had nothing to do with the White House. There was a problem up there’

Earlier this week, questions arose when Pence canceled his trip at last minute

He was on Air Force Two preparing to leave when it was canceled

President Trump on Friday deepened the mystery of why Vice President Mike Pence abruptly canceled a trip to New Hampshire earlier this week, saying it had to do with a problem in the state and all would be revealed in ‘about two weeks.’

It was ‘a very interesting problem that they had in New Hampshire,’ he told reporters at the White House.

‘You will know in about two weeks,’ he added.

But the president, known for his frequent tweets on all manner of subjects, refused to give a hint as to what it could be.

‘I can’t tell you about it,’ Trump said. ‘But it had nothing to do with the White House. There was a problem up there. And I won’t go into what the problem was, but you will see in about a week or two.’

Pence abruptly cancelled an appearance at an opioid event in New Hampshire on Tuesday afternoon because of an ’emergency.’

Chief of staff Marc Short told reporters at the White House that it would be ‘weeks from now’ before the reason would be disclosed, according to Bloomberg.

The bizarre situation began at lunchtime, when a Pence representative came on stage at the New Hampshire event to say the VP had been recalled.

‘Air Force Two was heading this way. There’s been an emergency callback. The vice president has been asked to return to Washington,’ Randy Gentry said.

Pence’s office clarified later that AF2 never left the ground.

The vice president, however, was on the plane preparing to leave when the trip was canceled….

Principal Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley tried to tamp down anxiety, telling a group of journalists huddled in the corridor outside his office that there was ‘no cause for concern.’

‘Something came up that requires the VP to remain in D.C. There is no cause for concern,’ he declared….

It remained a mystery what the ’emergency’ was that caused Pence to cancel, and who had called him and asked him to come back.

A senior official told White House reporters that neither the president nor the vice president was experiencing a medical emergency.

‘No medical emergency with either person,’ the person said.

National security concerns were also ruled out as reporters scrambled to figure out why Pence had cancelled his event.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS…

So in all honesty, let’s ask about the odds. We have the two biggest LA quakes in 25 years, beginning on Independence Day.

The Alliance already made it very clear on 11/11 that they had gained control of the earthquake technology and could use it for military strikes.

Then this very mysterious article where POTUS telegraphs a “very interesting… emergency” with a one or two-week deadline comes out… at 5:37 PM Eastern time.

This was just six hours before the second quake.

Then the VERY NEXT DAY, FBI agents smashed in the doors at Jeffrey Epstein’s house… and arrested him.

7/6: FBI Agents Pound Down Jeffrey Epstein’s Door and Arrest Him
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article232374872.html

Around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, about a dozen federal agents broke down the door to Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse to execute search warrants, witnesses and sources said.

“We heard the loud banging and we walked over and saw all these FBI agents just pounding down the door,” a witness told the Herald.

Epstein, 66, is expected to be arraigned in federal court in New York on Monday on charges that he molested dozens of underage girls in New York and in Florida, the sources said.

His arrest, first reported by the Daily Beast, comes nearly two weeks after the Justice Department announced that it would not throw out his 2008 non-prosecution agreement, even though a federal judge ruled it was illegal.

THUS BEGINS THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF CARDS

With all the people who went to Epstein’s island, you’d better believe this arrest is a “kill shot” for the Deep State — and they know it.

Thus begins the fall of the House of Cards. Is this all a coincidence?

If you don’t ‘get’ how important this arrest is, just look at the following Tweet:

Alex Salvi
@alexsalvinews
The judge who unsealed the #Epstein documents said the public’s right to access case information outweighed the privacy of individuals, including:

ANOTHER WEIRD SYNCHRONICITY

Here’s another strange synchronicity. A couple of months ago I went to a local fancy restaurant here in LA for a nice dinner with my wife.

Jeffrey Epstein was there. Over by the wall, next to the fireplace.

He was wearing a tan felt baseball cap. I looked him right in the eye. He looked me right in the eye.

He very likely knew who I was, and the shenanigans of his that I have reported on. I was not afraid… but it did definitely creep me out.

He had his back against the wall and people on either side of him. I thought about how brave he was showing his face in public, quite honestly.

I wondered how in the world this man was still free and able to walk around… but that’s all changed now.

And best of all, a SEALED INDICTMENT was just unsealed and led to his arrest. That’s it, folks… the Proof has arrived.

It is On like Donkey Kong.

LET’S READ ABOUT EPSTEIN

We will first quote from the Daily Beast, followed later by Zero Hedge for more context. Take a look:

7/6: Jeffrey Epstein Arrested for Sex Trafficking of Minors
https://www.thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-epstein-arrested-for-sex-trafficking-of-minors-source?ref=home

Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, and will appear in court in New York on Monday, according to three law enforcement sources.

Saturday’s arrest by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force comes about 12 years after the 66-year-old financier essentially got a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls in Florida.

For more than a decade, Epstein’s alleged abuse of minors has been the subject of lawsuits brought by victims, investigations by local and federal authorities, and exposés in the press.

But despite the attention cast on his alleged sex crimes, the hedge-funder has managed to avoid any meaningful jail time, let alone federal charges.

The new indictment—which, according to two sources, will be unsealed Monday in Manhattan federal court—will reportedly allege that Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for “massages” and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his palatial residence in Palm Beach….

ZERO HEDGE GETS EVEN MORE DIRECT: IT’S CLINTON, STUPID

In their classic and fearless manner, Zero Hedge went for it. If Epstein is arrested — and he just was — the Clintons and the Deep State go down with him:

7/6: Zero Hedge on Epstein Arrest: It All Ties Back to the Clintons and the Deep State
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-06/jeffrey-epstein-has-been-arrested-sex-trafficking-minors-0

Recall, back in 2017, we wrote about former secret service agent Dan Bongino threatening to reveal new details about Bill Clinton’s 26 documented trips aboard notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”

Bongino dropped a ominous-sounding threat at the time: “…people know things not yet released publicly about your messiah Hillary. Don’t poke the bear loser, you may not like the results. #Epstein #EmailGate,” tweeted Bongino….

Epstein allegedly installed beds in his custom jet, and also purportedly filmed powerful men during romps with underage girls to obtain materials for blackmail.

According to Fox News, Epstein allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 to service his friends on Epstein’s “Orgy Island,” an estate on Little St. James in the US Virgin Islands. Epstein now lives permanently in the US Virgin Islands.

Clinton chose to continue his association with Epstein even after the lurid trial, according to the Alliance to Rescue Victims of Trafficking, “everyone within his inner circles knew was a pedophile.”

Speculation that Clinton was involved with Epstein was noted in “Bill Clinton Was Here”: The Elite One-Percent’s ‘Orgy Island’ Exposed.”

An article by the now defunct Gawker titled “Flight Logs Put Clinton, Dershowitz on Pedophile Billionaire’s Sex Jet” added to speculation about Clinton’s troubling relationship with the convicted sex offender.

Back in 2017, we revealed the full flight logs from Epstein’s “Lolita Express”.

Also check out this compilation of data from Brad Kauilapele, which includes links to all of Q’s posts on Epstein and his little island.

THE STORY KEEPS HEATING UP….

Just two hours ago as of the time of this writing, another article from the Miami Herald emerged with even more information about this fast-breaking case.

Check it out:

7/7: Epstein’s Arrest Could Bring Down Many Other Powerful Individuals
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article232385422.html

Jeffrey Epstein spent a second night in a New York jail cell Sunday, with a federal indictment expected to be unsealed Monday, charging him with sex offenses involving underage girls he and others allegedly trafficked in New York and Florida, sources have told the Miami Herald.

His Saturday arrest capped months of investigating, led by federal agents and prosecutors with the Southern District of New York’s Public Corruption Unit, assisted by investigators with the sex trafficking division.

Although details of the case remain undisclosed, there are indications that others involved in his crimes could be charged or named as cooperating witnesses.

Among those potentially on the list: Ghislaine Maxwell, a 57-year-old British socialite and publishing heir who has been accused of working as Epstein’s madam; and Jean-Luc Brunel, who, according to court records, was partners with Epstein in an international modeling company.

Epstein, 66, was arrested at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday, as he arrived on his private jet from Paris, where he had been vacationing since June 14th, aviation records show.

About an hour after they picked him up, federal agents arrived at his imposing Manhattan townhouse, breaking down the door to execute search warrants….

The fact that search warrants were issued shows that federal investigators have new evidence against Epstein beyond the sex cases he was given federal immunity for in Florida in 2008, legal experts told the Miami Herald.

“They can’t take information from a case in 2002 or 2005 to get a search warrant today; there had to have been something for probable cause that contains evidence of a crime found now, so I’m interested in what that evidence is,’’ said Francey Hakes, a former federal prosecutor who once oversaw the Justice Department’s child exploitation crimes division.

Lawyers for Epstein’s victims, in court filings, have often likened Epstein’s sex operation to an organized crime family, with Epstein and Maxwell at the top, and below them, others who worked as schedulers, recruiters, pilots and bookkeepers….

For her part, Maxwell, whose social circle included such friends as Bill and Hillary Clinton and members of the British Royal family,

has been described as using recruiters positioned throughout the world to lure women by promising them modeling assignments, educational opportunities and fashion careers.

The pitch was really a ruse to groom them into sex trafficking, it is alleged in court records….

Epstein’s arrest could open a window to expose other influential people who knew about or participated in his crimes.

The question is what evidence or information does Epstein have against them and how might he use it?…

Monday’s first appearance is expected to be brief, with the actual indictment revealing little of substance.

More crucial will be a bond hearing later in the week to decide whether Epstein can go free while awaiting trial.

NEW GOOGLE WHISTLEBLOWER HAS EMERGED AS WELL

If you read and enjoyed DECLAS, you will certainly recall the Facebook Insider Dossier.

That ‘leak’ inspired a similarly high-placed insider to spill the beans on Google founder Eric Schmidt. This is a long one and I will only give you a taste of its contents.

I do think this insider may be a little too heavily putting all the blame on China, rather than on the C!A and the Deep State itself.

Either way, it is SO ON:

7/2: Google Founder Eric Schmidt Exposed by Ex-Lover
Former Lover Exposes Eric Schmidt

JANE DOE: What I am about to tell you has seldom ever been said out-loud. Brin and Page were stooges. They were chosen because they would lie, not because they invented something.

They were given a top-secret DARPA program called Memex, which we had used as the best search engine we could develop. It was all military and the “dark web” at first.

We used it to sucker in the enemy, unbeknownst to them, and then subliminally brain-wash them attempting to create behavioral outcomes through digital dopamine reward systems and adrenalin excretions.

It worked like a charm, so the C!A’s In-Q-Tel agency suggested we give the system out to everyone in the world and see if we can’t control the world globally through digital addiction and manipulation.

Again, it worked like a charm, so we created the fake National Science Project that Brin and Page participated in.

They simply did the best job of the dozen people involved, but they didn’t invent anything. They simply used Memex and made it commercial.

Facebook and Zuckerberg did the same thing with Lifelog, which was another DARPA/In-Q-Tel project that needed a boy-genius as the front-man. Mark was simply used.

I find it amazing how easily people are lied to effectually. Eric is one big fat lie. Mark, Jim, Elon, Peter, and the whole gang got their inventions from DARPA and In-Q-Tel’s theft of patents. I know. I was there in the meetings.

PATRIOT: So, are you evil too?

JANE DOE: Yes, in a way I fell into the same evil trap, but for different reasons. I actually was naïve, and thought I was doing it for my country. I only found out after years in DARPA what was really going on.

It actually comes down to a handful of people who control the world. I happen to know most of them.

No one does anything without tech support.

I was at the heart of high-tech innovation at DARPA, Motorola, Boston Dynamics, Facebook Building 8, and many other “skunkworks” projects for Lockheed, Boeing, BAE and others….

PATRIOT: So, are you saying Eric’s plans to dominate America are already in place?

JANE DOE: Yes, I’ve already mentioned his election rigging activities, but his Digital News Service controls all main stream media outlets.

Eric owns the program that runs Avid and Isis Management, the system that filters every word on 127 media outlets.

That’s why the news is the same wherever you look. Eric’s program scrubs the news. Eric created a dozen look-alike programs for Europe, where his programs have effectively stopped free speech….

Any parting comments?

JANE DOE: I can’t tell you how this makes me feel. I am not one for sentiment but I feel a huge weight lifting off my chest.

I am pleased with my decision to have no further working with the companions of darkness. A new day needs to come when lies are like mill-stones around the neck of the liar.

ONE LAST BIG ONE….

Last but certainly not least, Neon Revolt has done some truly ground-breaking independent work exposing the Secret Space Program, and deserves a mention here.

I had forgotten about the quotes supporting the idea of a secret lunar base in William Cooper’s classic, Behold a Pale Horse, but then it all came back when I read this piece.

Neon Revolt links the classic quotes from Cooper to recent revelations from William Tompkins, who I had regular telephone conversations with as an insider:

6/28: Majestic 12, the Secret Space Program and the Wilson Memo

Majestic 12, the Secret Space Program, and The Wilson Memo. Deeper Disclosures with #NEONREVOLT. #QAnon #GreatAwakening

[From Cooper’s book:] “A multi-million dollar secret fund was organized and kept by the Military Office of the White House. This fund was used to build over 75 deep underground facilities.

Presidents who asked were told the fund was used to build deep underground shelters for the President in case of war. Only a few were built for the President.

Millions of dollars were funneled through this office to MJ-12, and then out to the contractors and was used to build top-secret alien bases as well as top-secret DUMB (Deep Underground Military Bases)….

“A Moon base, Luna, was photographed by the Lunar Orbiter and filmed by the Apollo astronauts. Domes, spires, tall round structures which look like silos, huge T-shaped mining vehicles that left stitchlike tracks in the lunar surface, and extremely large as well as small alien craft appear in the official NASA photographs.

It is a joint United States and Soviet base: The space program is a farce and an unbelievable waste of money….

The Apollo astronauts were severely shaken by this experience, and their lives and subsequent statements reflect the depth of the revelation and the effect of the muzzle order which followed.

They were ordered to remain silent or suffer the extreme penalty, death, which was termed an “expediency…”

VERY EXCITING….

As one last tidbit, we were getting insider briefings to expect “something big” this past week, but then nothing happened.

Saturday, however, we were not disappointed. The arrest of Epstein may have been delayed by him delaying his own departure from his vacation.

This, in turn, may have synchronistically led to the possible China Lake earthquake strike being conducted on Independence Day.

History is in the making. These are very exciting times.

If things keep up at this pace, you will have to bear with me, as I simply must get this book done… and I am loving the process!

At least this way, we are up to date as for right now.

I must admit I have never been more excited about anything in my entire life.

Both Elizabeth and I are on book-writing retreats… and we both knocked out articles, almost simultaneously, while we were “supposed to be” working on our books!

Almost immediately after I posted this, she emailed me to let me know she had just posted HER article!

This is detailed and rich with visuals, and provides valuable spiritual context to what we have discussed here.

Elizabeth has been working on this since May, and a lot of work and information has gone into it. Check it out:

Milk Sales Plummeted By $1.1 Billion In 2018

Good news! Dairy sales dropped by $1.1 billion in 2018! You may not know why this is good news just yet, but we’ll get there! Dairy Farmers of America during released the new statistics during an annual meeting in 2018. Sales dropped 8% from $14.7 billion in 2017 to $13.6 billion in 2018. This was due to low milk prices and a massive consumer shift toward plant-based alternatives like cashew milk, almond milk and soy milk.

In response to the losses, dairy lobbyists have been pushing to ban marketable terminology like ‘milk,’ ‘cheese’ and ‘dairy free’ from being used by creators of plant-based products. It seems the hope is that this will confuse the marketplace or make it harder to describe new products, ultimately pushing people back to dairy.

The act was officially titled “The Defending Against Imitations and Replacements of Yogurt, Milk, and Cheese to Promote Regular Intake of Dairy Everyday Act.” Michele Simon, the executive director of 130-member lobby group Plant Based Food Association, believes this is misleading and unconstitutional.

Simon stated:

“In an era of increasing innovation in the food industry, this legislation would send a chilling message to small and emerging businesses: The marketplace is rigged against you in favor of large and powerful special interests,”

“This mean-spirited bill would harm innovative plant-based food companies that are growing rapidly, providing new, great-tasting options for consumers. This bill would declare the free market dead with the promotion of protectionist policies pushed by dairy-state politicians and their lobbyists.”

The dairy lobby is clearly not happy about this, and with the following statistics, you can see why this could be alarming for their business. The United States Department of Agriculture released a report in 2017 that showed milk consumption had declined by 22% between 2000 to 2016. It further revealed that vegan dairy alternatives currently worth $17.3 billion is predicted to nearly double by 2023.

 Dairy Is Scary – It’s Time For Change

Of course, the move away from dairy hasn’t come randomly, research continues to come out every few months illustrating just how bad dairy is for human consumption. From bone issues, increased cancer rates, inflammation, and pesticide and hormonal intake, we see only a small amount of what one might expect from regular dairy consumption.

What is interesting to observe is that instead of making an adjustment away from an unhealthy product, the dairy lobby holds onto its grip in fear of change. They also took up arms in creating and spreading lies to deceive the public on the health of dairy.

But not all dairy farmers are fighting back, some are actually looking at the health concerns and animal abuse and are changing. Elmherst Milked was a dairy producer that has now turned to plant-based alternatives.

Henry Schwartz, whose grandfather started Elmherst Milked stated:

“It was time to reevaluate the past and start creating the food traditions that would carry us into the future.”

It took just two years of transition and the company was on track producing healthier, nutritious, humane and environmentally friendly milk.

The Takeaway

The world is shifting! Holding onto old patterns simply because we are afraid to change or don’t want to see the truth coming to the surface in new research and understandings will only make it more challenging for us to thrive and it will turn us towards egoic tendencies of deception and manipulation in order to survive for just a bit longer.

It’s time to truly question what we do and why… not just that, but the effect it has on others including animals and our environment. Elmherst Milked was able to adjust and do well, so can others. Everyone is going through a challenge in one way or another, comparing who has it worse won’t lead us forward but will only have us spinning our tires.

Change can happen – it is happening.

Government’s Own Pro-vaccine Medical Expert Admits There is a Vaccine-Autism Link That is Being Covered Up

Earlier this year investigative independent journalist Sharyl Attkisson ran a report on Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, a world-renowned pediatric neurologist whom the U.S. Government used in 2007 to testify in the U.S. Vaccine Court that vaccines did not cause autism.

However, Dr. Zimmerman also stated in an affidavit that vaccines can cause autism in a certain subset of children, but that testimony was suppressed.

Sharyl Attkisson writes:

[O]n Full Measure, we will be running a replay of what I think is the most important vaccine-autism report this year.

It tells how the government’s own pro-vaccine medical expert, a world-renowned pediatric neurologist, concluded — based on scientific studies and other scientific information — that vaccines can cause autism, after all, in “exceptional” cases.
