Kp Message 7-1-20, early AM… “I’m feeling ‘pummeling’ Energies right now”

Yes that’s right… I’m definitely feeling ‘pummeling’ Energies right now.

This entire day I’ve tried to rest, but it’s almost like the Universe has been sending one thing after another to “trip me up” and “make me react”. And I have, sometimes.

I did not do too well with them. But I am resting now and will allow “Sleeping with the Galactics” to do its work.

Many times these days, I really DON’T know what I’m doing, or where I’m going, or how I’m going to get from one place to another.

It feels very very intense.

I know I’m learning lessons I may need to learn and releasing tons of inner stuff. I do not always enjoy it. But it’s happening, nonetheless.

So we’ll see what all this goes.

GMO Mosquitoes To Be Released in Florida

In June 2020, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services gave the go-ahead to a plan to release millions of genetically engineered mosquitoes in the Florida Keys this summer to fight mosquito-borne illnesses.1 The plan follows the EPA’s recent granting of an experimental use permit (EUP) for the GMO (genetically modified organism) mosquitoes so they can be released in Florida in 2020 and in Texas in 2021.2

The mosquitoes, engineered from the Aedes aegypti mosquito species,3 were created by the U.S.-owned, Britain-based company Oxitec, which originated as a spin-off company from Oxford University and subsidiary of Intrexon.4 The company has also created genetically modified pink bollworm moths and GMO cabbage moths.

The Aedes aegypti mosquito species,5 also called A. aegypti, carries yellow fever, dengue fever, chikungunya, Zika, West Nile and Mayaro,6 a dengue-like disease. (Malaria is transmitted by a different mosquito, Anopheles.7) In the U.S., Oxitec8 is marketing the insects as Oxitec Friendly™ mosquitoes that are a “safe, targeted vector control technology” to combat mosquito-transmitted diseases.9

Citizens Question GMO Mosquito Release

Despite the previous release of Oxitec’s GMO mosquitos in the Cayman Islands, Malaysia, Panama and Brazil,10 questions remain about the GMO mosquitoes’ effect on wildlife as well as unforeseen and uncontrollable “Jurassic Park-like” events that are feared once the insects are released and can’t be “called back.”

During the public comment period before the EPA’s EUP authorization, 31,000 written comments were received. Many expressed concern about the GMO mosquito’s effect on food webs and ecosystems and fears that the released mosquitoes could interbreed with wild insects, creating dangerous hybrid mosquitoes.11

A similar concern about interbreeding with wild organisms accompanied the approval of GMO salmon by the FDA in 2015.12 In 2016, residents of Key Haven, Florida, voted against the release of Oxitec GMO mosquitoes13 and the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District board abided by their wishes.14

Reclassification Gives Oxitec Mosquitoes a Boost

The history behind this is a tale of moves and countermoves. Originally, Oxitec had submitted their genetically-engineered mosquitoes for approval to APHIS, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service division of the USDA.15 But since mosquitoes aren’t considered to be pests on plants, the FDA took over Oxitec’s review under its regulations for GE animals.

Oxitec followed up with a petition to the FDA to release its mosquitoes in Florida.16 But, after Key Haven’s citizens rejected Oxitec’s request in November 2016, the FDA decided a few weeks later, in January 2017, to hand over the regulation of GE mosquitoes to the EPA — basically reclassifying the mosquitoes as an insecticide, a product the EPA oversees.17

The transfer was a huge win for Oxitec, as the EPA is required to review new pesticides quickly, within 12 months of submission. (The FDA, on the other hand, has no time lines on its approval process — something that Oxitec officials admitted had frustrated them for years.18) Oxitec got another boost in 2018 when the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation decided to fund one of its other mosquitoes, for malaria, to the tune of $4.1 million.19

After the hand over to the EPA, Oxitec wasted no time in resubmitting its request to release mosquitoes in Florida, as well as Texas — and won the EPA’s approval. Now, as a GMO mosquito release again approaches, angry Florida residents say they refuse to be treated as “guinea pigs” for a “superbug,” “Robo-Frankenstein” mosquito.

Well-funded GMO-backed PR campaigns are rushing to assure Floridians that the GMO mosquito doesn’t bite.20

Mosquitoes Kill More People Than Any Other Creature

There was a time when people who lived in the U.S. thought of mosquitoes as just annoying insects whose itchy bites could be an impediment to enjoying summer nights. But with the emergence of West Nile, Zika and the spreading of Saint Louis encephalitis21 in the U.S., Americans now realize, like their counterparts in warmer nations, that mosquitoes can and do kill.

In addition to the diseases caused by A. aegypti, other mosquitoes transmit chikungunya,22 which can cause debilitating joint pain,23 and lymphatic filariasis, a disease that dwells in the human lymph system.24 Taken together, mosquitoes kill more people than any other creature in the world.25 According to the Independent:26

“Yes, mosquitoes — the pesky bugs that suck blood and transmit viruses from person to person — are responsible for the most animal-related deaths (830,000 per year to be exact). For comparison, humans are responsible for 580,000 human deaths per year, snakes account for 60,000 deaths per year and sharks claimed just six lives per year.”

In 2015, dengue sickened 1.5 million people in Brazil alone, including 1,600 in the city of Piracicaba located in the Brazilian state of São Paulo.27 The United Nations estimated that in Africa, mosquito nets could save 500,000 lives a year.28

Deadly mosquito-borne diseases are also getting worse, in part because of climate change, according to an article in Yale Environment 360, a publication of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.29

“[A]n international team of researchers has found that by 2050, two key disease-spreading mosquitoes — Aedes aegypti [the species that Oxitec engineered] and Aedes albopictus — will significantly expand their range, posing a threat to 49 percent of the world’s population.

‘If no action is taken to reduce the current rate at which the climate is warming, pockets of habitat will open up across many urban areas with vast amounts of individuals susceptible to infection,’ said Moritz Kraemer, an infectious disease scientist at Boston Children’s Hospital and the University of Oxford and a co-author of the new research.”

Oxitec’s GMO Mosquitoes Are Not New

Oxitec’s first release of GMO mosquitoes was in the Cayman Islands in 2009.30 Critics charged that the company rushed a GMO organism into use without informing or consulting the public, but Oxitec reported a 96% reduction in the mosquito population in a small release area in the islands.31

Oxitec also conducted GMO mosquito tests in Panama and Malaysia, but its showcase project was in Brazil, resulting from a collaboration with the University of Sa?o Paulo and the nonprofit research facility Moscamed.32 In three treated Brazilian neighborhoods, Oxitec reported a 90% mosquito population reduction.33

Brazil was chosen as a primary location for “a major scale-up” and “proving ground for tailored mosquitoes” because of the nation’s high dengue fever rates and the ineffectiveness of pesticides against the Aedes aegypti mosquito, wrote Science magazine.34

Pesticide resistance in Brazil was verified when some of Oxitec’s lab-grown GMO mosquitoes perished in Brazil upon release because they “had never been exposed to insecticides [and were] so much less resistant to them than wild mosquitoes.” wrote the magazine.35

The GMO mosquitoes, all male, have an inserted gene in their DNA that contains a “self-destruct mechanism.”36 The gene creates “tetracycline repressible activator variant,” or tTAV, a protein that inhibits other genes in the insect and causes it to die before it reaches adulthood if it does not receive tetracycline.37

However, because the GMO mosquitoes are given the antibiotic tetracycline in the lab, they survive to maturity and can mate with wild female mosquitoes and pass along the self-destruct genes so future females will not survive to breed.38 According to Oxitec:39

“… when Friendly™ mosquito males mate with wild females, their offspring inherit a copy of this gene, which prevents females from surviving to adulthood. Since these females do not mature to reproduce, there is a reduction in the wild pest population.”

According to the EPA, the effects of the Friendly mosquito should be “multigenerational” and reduce the Aedes aegypti mosquito populations in areas where it is released.40 The EPA insists it won’t pose risks:41

“Since only male mosquitoes will be released into the environment and they do not bite people, they will not pose a risk to people. It is also anticipated that there would be no adverse effects to animals such as bats and fish in the environment.”

Many See Risks With Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes

Because the mosquitoes need tetracycline to survive, doctors addressing the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board expressed concern that the insects could promote tetracycline-resistant organisms. Key West physician Dr. John Norris said:42

“These insects are designed to get into people’s houses and cause the extinction of whatever Aedes live there, but the bacteria they leave behind is left to breed because it has no death chain.

No physician is going to stand in front of you and speak negatively against the GMs, but … [t]here was a real mistake made, in my humble opinion, when they used an antibiotic as the maturation factor to an organism designed to get into people’s houses and deposit whatever else was along for the ride.”

Dr. Norris is right. Moreover, since the GMO mosquitoes were designed to die in the absence of tetracycline and the assumption was that they would not have access to the antibiotic in the wild, there is another problem.

Tetracycline and other antibiotics are now often found in soil and surface water because of their overuse, especially in farming. This could potentially create a nightmarish scenario — especially since the EPA has approved Florida and Texas citrus growers’ use of tetracycline to fight invasive bacterial infections in their groves.43

Writing in the Boston Globe, Natalie Kofler, founder of Editing Nature and an adviser for the Scientific Citizenship Initiative at Harvard Medical School, and Jennifer Kuzma, professor in the School of Public and International Affairs and co-director of the Genetic Engineering and Society Center, stated the GMO mosquito should not be released until much more thorough study is conducted:44

“For starters, an external independent group of experts should be convened to review the first GM mosquitoes … To address the complexity of such a decision, this group should consist of interdisciplinary experts representing diverse identities with expertise in ecology, genetics, vector biology, risk assessment, entomology, public health, ethics, and social science.

External peer review is a cornerstone of good science and could ensure that all necessary risks are being addressed.”

Environmental Groups Plan to Sue

The EPA has said it will have Oxitec monitor the GMO mosquito release to assure safety.45

“Oxitec is required to monitor and sample the mosquito population weekly in the treatment areas to determine how well the product works for mosquito control and to confirm that the modified genetic traits disappear from the male Aedes aegypti mosquito population over time.

EPA has also maintained the right to cancel the EUP at any point during the 24-month period if unforeseen outcomes occur.”

Of course, canceling the EUP won’t remove the already released GMO mosquitoes. Meanwhile, the Center for Food Safety, the International Center for Technology Assessment and Friends of the Earth say they plan to sue the EPA for failing to consult with wildlife agencies before determining the mosquitoes to be risk-free.46

In a letter to the heads of the U.S. EPA, the Department of Commerce, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of the Interior and the Fish and Wildlife Service, the groups wrote:47

“EPA’s ‘no effect’ findings and failure to consult are arbitrary and capricious and violate the ESA [Endangered Species Act] because they fail to follow the ESA’s mandated procedures, fail to use the best scientific and commercial data available, fail to consider significant aspects of the issue, and offer an explanation that runs counter to the evidence.”

There is a reason that careful study is part of the Endangered Species Act. Mutations and behavioral adaptations to human interventions occur in nature and cannot be predicted.

For example, National Geographic recounted that “different species of mosquitoes have changed their predatory behavior to outside and earlier in the day in the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, and Tanzania,” as a response to insecticides.48 In another instance, wrote National Geographic:

“… a fascinating study in behavioral resistance is the corn rootworm, an insect that lays its eggs in cornfields so larvae will come up the next year and feast on the roots. Farmers evaded it by rotating crops so what was a cornfield one year will be soybeans the next.

By the 1990s, however … rootworms had changed — instead of hatching every year, one species was hatching every other year, to be there when the corn returned. Another species was leaping into neighboring soybean fields to wait for them to take their turn as cornfields in the next season.”

The GMO Mosquito Plan Is Too Dangerous

While engineering insects to stop the spread of mosquito-transmitted diseases might sound preferable to insecticides and vaccines, there are too many unknowns.

At present, the use of GMO insects is in its infancy. Not only are there no precedents from which to draw potential ecological consequences, proper risk assessments have not been done — and quite possibly might be impossible to conduct, considering the many unknown aspects of tinkering with DNA and allowing it to mingle with other species.49

What will be the effect on native species like Florida Keys bats that eat mosquitoes? Are any studies investigating whether the GMO mosquitoes will harm the native bat population? Will the more virulent Asian tiger mosquito, that also carries dengue, fill the void left by reductions in A. aegypti caused by the GMO mosquito and become even more dangerous? Serious questions remain.

In a study published in the journal Ecology and Evolution, researchers attempted to identify potential ecological effects of GMO insects and cited concerning developments that could occur.50

“For instance, if vector populations were suppressed, a reduction in acquired immunity could cause a transient increase in disease incidence, a phenomenon which is not necessarily unique to GE control strategies. Disease incidence may ultimately subside, but a transient increase could have significant implications for risk management and communication.

Conversely, identifying effects occurring in the steady state phase highlighted effects that might result as the ecosystem adjusts to the changed population. For GE mosquitoes, this might include evolution of increased vector capacity, or knock-on effects through the ecosystem, which might harm valued ecological interactions.”

The authors conclude there are disturbing unknowns about GMO mosquitoes.

“[I]n evaluating GE mosquitoes, the knowledge gaps in mosquito ecology are striking … particularly with respect to mosquito effects on consumer and resource species. Data and theory on ecological hysteresis in insect communities are also lacking, which makes it difficult to assess whether any changes are irreversible.”

Genetic engineering of plants and animals is a dangerous prospect. We’re already seeing “super weeds” and resistance drift arising from the use of GMO crops, an unintended consequence that GMO critics predicted and that could easily have been foreseen. Similarly, resistant super pests are spreading across American farmland and wreaking havoc, while the human health concerns keep mounting.

Genetic engineering of plants and animals may be lucrative to the biotech companies that invent and patent them but they are no answer to farm pests or, in this case, the prevention of mosquito-transmitted diseases.

Is Nasal Irrigation More Important Than Hand-Washing?

By now, you probably understand the importance of hand-washing to prevent the spread of infectious illness. But did you know flushing your sinuses might be an even better way to inhibit the progression of a viral illness such as COVID-19? In an April 20, 2020, article,1 MSN’s Best Life features the recommendations of Dr. Amy Baxter, a pediatric emergency medicine physician in Atlanta, Georgia.

Nasal irrigation, she says, is a rarely discussed strategy that can help reduce the progression of illness in those who have tested positive for COVID-19 infection. In an April 2, 2020, response2 to a BMJ paper about the lack of personal protection equipment on COVID-19 frontlines, professor Robert Matthews also brought up the importance and potential usefulness of oropharyngeal washing to protect health care workers from infection. As reported by MSN Best Life:3

“Nasal irrigation, or a nasal wash, has long been considered an effective way to remove viruses or bacteria from sinus cavities. Baxter has multiple reasons for believing that this approach can be effective in preventing the spread of coronavirus from worsening in a sick patient.”

Why Nasal Irrigation?

As noted by Baxter, researchers have found that the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 tends to be heaviest in the sinuses and nasal cavity. Regularly rinsing your sinuses therefore makes sense since it would help clear out the pathogen and prevent it from gaining a strong foothold and migrating into your lungs.

The age and gender discrepancies observed in COVID-19 also supports nasal irrigation. Children are at virtually no risk from COVID-19, while death rates among the elderly are at their highest. More men than women also die from the infection. 

“Children don’t develop full sinuses until teens; males have larger cavities than women, and the cavities are largest [in those] over 70 years,” Baxter notes.

Research has previously demonstrated that nasal irrigation reduces the symptoms and duration of other viral illnesses such as the seasonal flu and common cold.

In one randomized controlled trial,4 nasal irrigation and gargling with hypertonic saline were found to reduce the duration of the common cold by 1.9 days and reduce transmission within the household by 35% by reducing viral shedding when done within 48 hours of symptom onset.

While it has not yet been studied as a preventive method for COVID-19 specifically, there’s reason to suspect nasal irrigation might be helpful.

Baxter points out that COVID-19 death rates in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Laos have been surprisingly low, and nasal irrigation is common practice in those areas. According to Baxter, some 80% of the Southeast Asian population do it.

How to Irrigate Your Sinuses

Baxter suggests irrigating your sinuses any time you’ve been exposed to an infected individual or test positive for COVID-19. She recommends flushing your sinuses in the morning using a mixture of boiled lukewarm water (8 ounces) and povidone-iodine (half a teaspoon).

Povidone-iodine has been shown to effectively kill not only Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria, but to also rapidly inactivate SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, H1N1 influenza virus A and rotavirus after 15 seconds of exposure.5

The mixture used in this study — 7% povidone-iodine diluted 1-to-30, which equates to a total concentration of 0.23% povidone-iodine — inactivated over 99% of the coronaviruses causing SARS and MERS.

Either a neti pot or NeilMed sinus rinse bottle can be used. The water pressure you get from a sinus rinse bottle can provide a more effective flush. If higher pressure is uncomfortable, a neti pot, which relies on gravity, may be a more comfortable choice. In the evening, Baxter recommends flushing your sinuses again with a mixture of:

  • 8 ounces of boiled lukewarm water
  • 0.5 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon table salt

Gargling May Also Be Helpful

You may also be able to reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 migrating into your lungs by gargling. As noted by Dr. Neal Naito in a March 29, 2020, New York Times article,6 while there’s “no firm proof” that gargling can prevent COVID-19, there are virtually no downsides to the advice.

Like Baxter, Naito points out that many East Asian countries such as Japan see gargling as a commonsense hygiene practice.

“In East Asia, particularly in Japan, gargling is strongly encouraged by the national government, along with other practices like hand-washing, wearing face masks and social distancing, as a matter of routine hygiene during the regular cold and flu season.

(Not everyone, though, can gargle effectively, including some people with neck pain, stroke or dementia, as well as children generally under the age of 8.) Most of the early studies7 suggesting that gargling may help to prevent and treat upper and lower respiratory infections, not surprisingly, come from Japan,” Naito writes.

An over-the-counter povidone-iodine8 oral gargle solution, used for decades by the Japanese for the treatment of sore throat, appears most useful. One small study9 from Japan, published in 2002, found patients diagnosed with chronic respiratory disease who gargled with a povidone-iodine solution at least four times a day reduced their incidence of acute respiratory infection by about 50%.

Do Not Use Iodine-Based Skin Disinfectant for Gargling

Importantly, Naito stresses that povidone-iodine solutions sold as skin disinfectants are NOT suitable for gargling as they contain potentially harmful ingredients that should not be ingested.

“It’s critical that people not gargle with skin disinfectant solutions, including those that contain povidone-iodine,” he says. So, when using povidone-iodine for gargling, be sure to look for solutions such as Betadine formulated specifically as a sore throat gargle, not products intended for cuts and wound care.

Nebulized Hydrogen Peroxide — Another Prevention Strategy

While gargling and nasal irrigation may certainly be useful, I believe nebulizing hydrogen peroxide or colloidal silver may be even more effective. Dr. Thomas Levy10 has issued guidance11 on how to use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for the prevention and treatment of viral respiratory infections, including COVID-19.

To inactivate viruses with hydrogen peroxide, all you need is a face mask that covers your mouth and nose and a nebulizer that emits a fine mist with properly diluted food grade hydrogen peroxide.

Typically, food grade peroxide comes in concentrations of 12%, which must be diluted down to 1% or less before use, as described in the chart below and video above. If you are using 3% hydrogen peroxide, then you would multiply the number in the first column by 4, or divide the second column by 4.

coronavirus

The microscopic mist, similar to smoke or vapor, can be comfortably inhaled deep into your nostrils, sinuses and lungs. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom, and it is the additional oxygen atom that allows it to inactivate viral pathogens.

Coronaviruses are held together by a lipid (fat) envelope. Soap, being amphipathic12 — meaning it can dissolve most molecules — dissolves this fat membrane, causing the virus to fall apart and become harmless.

Hydrogen peroxide works in a similar way. You can find more details about the mechanism of action in my previous article, “Could Hydrogen Peroxide Treat Coronavirus?

Some of your immune cells actually produce hydrogen peroxide to destroy pathogens. By killing the infected cell, viral reproduction is stopped. So, hydrogen peroxide therapy is in essence only aiding your immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively.

Hydrogen peroxide is also a key redox signaling agent that creates oxidative eustress.13 Contrary to oxidative stress or oxidative distress, oxidative eustress denotes an oxidative challenge that has positive or beneficial effects and is essential in redox signaling.

Many studies have looked into the use of hydrogen peroxide against different pathogens. One of the most relevant is a review14 of 22 studies, published in March 2020 in the Journal of Hospital Infection. They found 0.5% hydrogen peroxide effectively inactivated a range of human coronaviruses, including those responsible for SARS and MERS, within one minute of exposure.

If you’re already presenting with a runny nose or sore throat, Levy recommends using the nebulizer for 10 to 15 minutes four times a day until your symptoms are relieved. You can also use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for prevention and maintenance, which may be advisable during flu season, or while the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing. According to Levy:15

“As it is a completely non-toxic therapy, nebulization can be administered as often as desired. If done on a daily basis at least once, a very positive impact on bowel and gut function will often be realized as killing the chronic pathogen colonization present in most noses and throats stops the 24/7 swallowing of these pathogens and their associated toxins.

If daily prevention is not a practical option, the effectiveness of this treatment is optimized when somebody sneezes in your face or you finally get off of the plane after a trans-Atlantic flight. Don’t wait for initial symptoms. Just nebulize at your first opportunity.”

How to find what you are looking for on this blog and Anna’s website.

Who is Paul Stramer
By Paul Stramer  6/30/2020
Webmaster for this blog
and annavonreitz.com

Lately I have been made aware that some people are having trouble finding what they need on Anna’s website and on this blog.  I understand the problems involved when the database is getting as large as it is.  On this blog there are over 5430 articles spanning over 10 years of work started on September 2nd 2009, and on Anna’s website at www.annavonreitz.com there are over 2570 articles on a wide variety of subjects, spanning almost 6 years, starting on September 7th, 2014.

It is imperative that we not try to re-invent the wheel, so to speak. So I have decided to try to clarify the methodology I have used, and the mechanics that you need to understand, in order find what you are looking for.

First of all, what is each of these websites designed to do?

The www.annavonreitz.com website is designed to be a chronological archive of the progression of what Anna has written about over the last 6 years. The idea is to give the reader a bird’s eye view of where we came from, and how we got from there to here, right up to the present. For that reason, when something she writes later, changes something she wrote earlier, I have made the determination that I would not go back and try to update any of the previous articles. I had promised Anna that I would publish exactly what she writes, without changes and my disclaimer at the top of this blog reflects that policy.

In addition, the enemies of American Freedom continuously move the cheese at the end of their maze, and to go back and try to correct all of those color of law machinations is next to impossible except to point them out when they happen, which is what we are all trying to do. We want to shed light on the current situation, while at the same time show the history of the fraud without moderation of any kind to that history.

This blog (www.paulstramer.net) titled the Lincoln County Watch blog, was here long before I knew anything about Anna, and has a lot of content that has since been overwritten by modern events and for the same reasons as above, I made the decision to not remove or modify or update the previous articles where  possible. We are all trying to learn the truth, as God sees that truth, and our enemies want to bury the truth so none of us can find it.

On this blog the only search feature, in the upper right corner at the top of the right hand column, is provided by the Blogger platform and is a function of Google. I have no options for setting the search parameters, and I have tried to use the Freefind search engine on this blog, but the google programming blocks that functionality. So I am stuck with what they provide. It does a fair job of searching the entire list of over 5400 articles if you limit your search to a couple of words at a time.
For example, I just did a search for ‘Archbishop George’  which was in the first article of Anna’s over 5 1/2 years ago, and it came right up, along with several other articles. It was the first in the list of search results.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. One advantage of using Googles programming is that it ranks us higher in the Google search results.  As proof of that, early in the morning usually, if I search for Anna Von Reitz, I sometimes get over 2 million results. During the day it tends to hover around 750 thousand give or take. Not bad for a simple blog with no financial monetization.

So on this blog, just type in your keywords and try different combinations of keywords with about 3 or 4 keywords or less being optimal. What you see is what you get for results.
When you go to those results, look up the page to find the last date. That will give you a time frame.
The format here is that if I publish 5 or 6 or more articles per day, only the first one will have a date, until the next day. The first one each day will be the only one with a date. That is part of the Google Blogger programming and there is nothing I can do to change that, especially for previously posted articles.

How do I find the Title and article number on the website?

Annavonreitz.com has an exceptional search engine called Freefind. It searches every word of every page including all the PDF articles, and will find phrases that might appear in one or several articles.

The default setting is that it only searches Anna’s website. This is a site specific search engine. It does not search the internet.

To prove that to yourself just go to www.annavonreitz.com and scroll down the page and pick an article at random. Open that link, and copy a multi-word phrase from the article, then go back to the top of the home page and paste that phrase into the search box. 99% of the time it will list the article you copied from as the first search result, and it will also list other articles where the phrase or parts of the phrase are written.

So when you search for a keyword or two the results will show all the articles that have those words in them. To narrow the search, type in more keywords, or phrases. Keywords that more closely reflect what you are looking for.  For example, a search for IRS yields 242 items, but a search for IRS exemption yields only 42 results.

So once you have narrowed down your results, then look at the link in each search result.
Sometimes the link will give the title of the article, but usually you will have to click the link and go to the article to get the title. Once you have that title you should copy it by doing a control C or a right click and copy.

The next step is to use your browser’s find feature. Every browser has a way to search whatever page you happen to be on at the time, to find a word, or a phrase on that page only. In this case you would go back to Anna’s home page where all the articles are listed by number, title and link. Once there you will open the find utility in your browser and type or paste the title of the article you just found using the Freefind search engine. As you type or paste in the title of the article your browser should go instantly to that article, giving you the number, title and link to the article.

Here is a real time example.

In the freefind search box I typed IRS claims.  One of the results came back “IRS Claims of Frivolous Return.  That was exactly what I was looking for so I clicked on that link on the results page. It took me right to the article. I copied the title at the top of the article and pasted it into my browsers Find feature while on the home page of annavonreitz.com. It took me right to article number 634 which  gave me the article number and link to that article as follows.

634. IRS Claims of “Frivolous Return”  http://annavonreitz.com/frivolousreturn.pdf

In google chrome to get to the browser’s find feature you would either do a ctrl F or go to the three dots in the upper right corner and click them to get the control panel, then click on find. Other browsers have these same features, but they might not be in exactly the same place as Chrome.  Just go to your browsers help feature and type in Find, or find on this page.

Feel free to comment and ask questions of this information in the comments section below this article and I will try to answer your questions.

What I am trying to say is Let your computer do the work it was intended to do. Search and Find are probably the two most valuable things a computer can do, period.

While I am on the subject of browser functionality many are asking about the size of the text (font size) being too small and hard to read. Once again your browser has a text, or font size, feature that lets you increase or decrease the size of the text you are looking at page by page.
In Chrome go again to the three dots and find the zoom with a – or + and adjust the size according to your liking. Every browser has this, but might not call it by the same names. Just look around, and by studying the browser you are using your life will be much easier.

I hope this helps you all to find the truth in an easier way.
