Blood Money 3

 By Anna Von Reitz

The last couple of days we’ve been going over the different kinds of money and things that substitute for money; these include two forms of asset-backed money— (1) commodity backed money and (2) labor backed money, and commercial script — certificates, bonds, shares, promissory notes, etc. 
We learned that in addition to the traditional commodity-backed money, like gold and silver coins, there is labor-backed money, also known as “blood money”, because it is assigned value based on the value of labor, energy, skills, and intellectual property belonging to living people.  
Federal Reserve Notes are Blood Money.  Millions of Americans misidentified as British Territorial U.S. Citizens have been bonded as indentured servants owned and operated by the British Crown.  As part of their servitude, their labor assets and intellectual assets are “bonded”.  
This basically means that bonds, known as Birth Certificate Bonds, are issued against the estimated value of their lifetime labor and intellectual property; and, in “equitable exchange”, Federal Reserve Notes equal to the value of these individual bonds are issued and the Serial Numbers on these Federal Reserve Notes are assigned under the name of the victim. 
Of course, ole Dumb Bunny is never told a word about this. 
Although this is lined out under Public Law 10: Chap. 48, 48 Stat. 112 formerly HJR 192 of June 5, 1933 of 31 U.S.C. 5118(d)(2), the Emergency Banking Relief Act of March 9, 1933, and Public Law 73-1, 48 Stat.1., telling us that all forms of currency are an individual’s credit per Public Policy, PL 73-10, it isn’t actually told to you in words that average people could understand. 

It means that you own the currencies, lock, stock, and barrel, and it also means that all the corporations are in your debt.  

So your labor and your intellectual assets, your Good Name, your copyrights, your patents, your trademarks, etc., have all been seized upon by the Brits, and sold into indentured servitude to back the Federal Reserve Notes and all other forms of currency– including coupons, stamps, tariffs, taxes, promissory notes, money orders, wire transfers, USD, FRN’s, traffic citations, court cases, digital currencies — you name it, and you are on the hook for it, 

It’s your Blood Money that they are using to run their currency system and pay their payrolls, while they have conveniently cashiered away your gold and silver resources for “safe-keeping” in the Philippines and Indonesia and other Ports of Call and blocked your access to this alternative form of commodity-backed money. 

They’ve forced you to slave away and bear the entire brunt of supporting their labor-backed currency issues, while blocking your access to your own gold and silver resources.  Those resources could have been used to issue a commodity-backed currency, instead, as President Kennedy directed—but they killed him and pushed their filthy “petrodollar” instead.  And jacked your energy costs skyhigh as your reward. 

A singular labor-backed currency system lets the rats freely manipulate the value of commodities — everything from the value of gold and silver to sow bellies can be “fixed”, and as long as there is no parity or fixed standard for commodity values, it’s perfectly legal to engage in commodity price fixing, because, well, there is no way to determine a price for commodities.  (Cough, cough, cough….) 

Remember what the Queen’s Uncle Adolph did in Germany with the Deutsche Mark?  He set up the “commodity standard” and the “labor standard” in one simple stroke — establishing an exchange rate of 1 DM per loaf of good bread or, alternatively, 1 DM per hour of labor.  Both.  At once. 

What these Vermin have done, is to arbitrarily define and use only a labor standard, so they could put the entire burden of supporting the currency on you, while they artificially rigged the price of commodities — everything from shoes to Bob Dole’s pineapple — which, of course, has been used to gouge you at the gas station, the grocery store, the post office, and everywhere else.  

There was really no need to use Blood Money to front the currencies. There was, instead, a desire to subject you to foreign law, undermine your actual currency—-the United States Silver Dollar, and pull another fraud scheme involving pre-planned bankruptcy of their Municipal Corporations, claims of abandonment against your actual government, and destructive inflation of fiat currencies attributed to you without your knowledge or consent, to reduce you, good ole Dumb Bunny, to homelessness, poverty and economic collapse.  

Meanwhile, they intended to take their “winnings” and repeat this same process in China, using our purloined wealth to buy their way into Beijing, convince the CCP to sell them the Chinese People for the same purposes, and…. 

The image of Jealousy in Ezekial 14 comes to mind. 

It’s like having a leech attached to your back.  You can’t see it, but it is sucking you dry nonetheless. And that is what your purported Trustees in international jurisdiction have been doing to you for the past 100 years. 

Having been “discovered” and having the DTCC and within DTCC, Cede and Company, identified as the Issuer and Holder, respectively, of the Birth Certificate Bonds that have been used to obtain the Blood Money to do all this — the Holy See has been left holding the bag, and has recently offered to return all the Birth Certificate Bonds that are supporting all the various kinds of currency. 

Isn’t that just ducky, Dumb Bunny?  We get the paper that enslaves us returned— the instrumentality of the crime against each and every one of us, comes home to the actual American Government, and we, the Victims, are left to sort it out and deal with the situation.  

It’s like being given a Pawn Shop Ticket to retrieve our own stolen goods.

 And when we walk through the door to claim our stuff, there’s an even odds chance that the police will be there (and still contriving to mistake us for someone else) to claim that we are, somehow, the ones responsible for the Mess and all the abuse that we have suffered and even the theft of our own labor assets. 

Color me cynical.  Say that I’ve been to too many rodeos.  Played too many card games with the Father of All Lies. 

Over the years I’ve had many people miss the point in what I am telling them. It somehow sails right over their heads like a helium balloon.  

They hear about these bonds and how these bonds have so much value and they immediately think that this is a good thing, and boy, howdy!  We are rich! Rich beyond our wildest dreams!  Lalalalalah—- but that’s not what a “bond” is and that’s not what a bond on your labor implies. 

A bond is debt.  If it’s a labor bond, you have to work until you pay the debt off.  All that “money”? That’s debt money.  If you are holding a bond against your own labor worth $400 million, guess what?  

On top of that, millions of Americans have been misidentified as British Territorial Citizens and bonded when they were innocent Third Parties —not even “eligible” to be bonded in the first place.  So all that bonded debt has to be offset and what happens when you do that? 

Without the bonds backing the currency the currency loses value like a house on fire, the economies collapse, people starve, wars commence, and so on. 

So here we are, victims of a crime, being given the knife that stabbed us.  Like Atlas we have the choice of carrying the burden someone else created and laid on us, or, we can use it as a bowling ball, destroy everything, and give the enemies of Mankind what they want anyway.  
One apparent step forward is to lean hard enough on the Queen’s Government and the Government of Westminster to secure access to our purloined gold and silver assets and to re-issue a commodity-backed money standard and currency to go with it.  That takes pressure off the labor-backed currency and acts like a steam release valve on a pressure cooker. 

Careful management of the bonds in a similar gradual release of indebtedness and Debt Relief owed, especially to Americans who never should have been roped into this scheme in the first place, is a second apparent step.  

Another sore point and issue with the Queen’s Government and Westminster is the replacement of SERCO as both Paymaster of our Armed Forces and manager of our Patent Office.  The US Patent Office has been criminally mismanaged for years, resulting in such travesties as granting Bill Gates a patent on living people used as wi-fi devices.  

We suggest that Bill Gates, if he is still alive, be turned into an antenna at the earliest possible opportunity, and that he and the officials at SERCO who approved any such patent “in our names” all be bundled off to a nice padded cell.  

Although these and other similar issues may not at first glance appear to address the issue of Blood Money and the ticking currency time bomb, a more careful consideration will prove that they well and truly do contribute to the miasma of enslavement, genocide, pollution, and all the other ills of the modern world.   

Key to any permanent solution of the problem is the application of pre-paid credit to gradually discharge debt and to mitigate the harm done to living people and small businesses, the development of new currencies to convert debt-based currencies to credit-based currencies, to consolidate asset-backed monetary standards, to end the exploitive abuse of commodity controls for political purposes and unjust enrichment, and most of all, to finally teach the people of the world what money is, and is not.

Why you should consider ordering The Matrix Revealed

by Jon Rappoport

My mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, contains interviews with two men who go farther in explaining how Matrix Reality is built, brick by brick, than anything I’ve ever encountered.

The first man is Ellis Medavoy (pseudonym), a retired propaganda master who, for many years, served the Deep State/ shadow government. Over a series of interviews (28 interviews, 290 pages), Ellis reveals how the space, time, and rhythm of the mind is shaped by operators who know more about REAL psychology than all the academics at all the colleges in the world.

The second man is brilliant hypnotherapist, Jack True. Jack and I researched together for several years. In 43 interviews (320 pages), Jack lays bare his experiences with patients, and how he discovered mechanisms of the mind that could be manipulated—or used to liberate the mind from its own traps and diversions and deeply ingrained habits.

Together, these two men showed me more about the Matrix than I had found in decades of investigation. Their insights are as much about liberation as they are about mind control.

The Matrix Revealed also contains my logic course, designed to immerse people with a high-school reading level in the first waves of rational thinking and analysis.

You can order the collection here.


the matrix revealed


Here are the full contents of The Matrix Revealed:

* 250 megabytes of information.

* Over 1100 pages of text.

* Ten and a half hours of audio.

The 2 bonuses alone are rather extraordinary:

* My complete 18-lesson course, LOGIC AND ANALYSIS, which includes the teacher’s manual and audio to guide you. I was previously selling the course for $375. This is a new way to teach logic, the subject that has been missing from schools for decades.

* The complete text (331 pages) of AIDS INC., the book that exposed a conspiracy of scientific fraud deep within the medical research establishment. The book has become a sought-after item, since its publication in 1988. It contains material about viruses, medical testing, and the invention of disease that is, now and in the future, vital to our understanding of phony epidemics arising in our midst. I assure you, the revelations in the book will surprise you; they cut much deeper and are more subtle than “virus made in a lab” scenarios.

The heart and soul of this product are the text interviews I conducted with Matrix-insiders, who have first-hand knowledge of how the major illusions of our world are put together:

* ELLIS MEDAVOY, master of PR, propaganda, and deception, who worked for key controllers in the medical and political arenas. 28 interviews, 290 pages.

* JACK TRUE, the most creative hypnotherapist on the face of the planet. Jack’s anti-Matrix understanding of the mind and how to liberate it is unparalleled. His insights are unique, staggering. 43 interviews, 320 pages.

* RICHARD BELL, financial analyst and trader, whose profound grasp of market manipulation and economic-rigging is formidable, to say the least. 16 interviews, 132 pages.

Also included:

* Several more interviews with brilliant analysts of the Matrix. 53 pages.

* The ten and a half hours of mp3 audio are my solo presentation, based on these interviews and my own research. Title: The Multi-Dimensional Planetary Chessboard—The Matrix vs. the Un-Conditioning of the Individual.

(All the material is digital. Upon ordering it, you’ll receive an email with a link to it.)

This work is all about reinstating individual power, above and beyond what the Matrix implies and stands for. It is about insight, yes—but it is also about liberating one’s consciousness from the habit of accepting life on the terms by which it is given to us.

Thought and action can align themselves with Matrix, or they can strike out in a far more adventurous and galvanizing direction. A thrilling direction unique to each individual.

StillnessInTheStorm 4-8-21 VIDEO… “BANNED VIDEO: Shocking Truths About Masks, Covid And Why Everything’s Upside Down” (plus “normie edition”)

This is a pretty “mind opening and expanding” video about the mask. Go to about 1:20 to view the tests Del Bigtree ran on a young subject, and it shows the accumulation of CO2 to hazardous levels with a variety of “approved” face masks (there’s also a “normie edition” that has some of the “deeper state type” parts removed).

I’ve been going through a h— of a lot the last couple days with knowing how many people are “automatically” getting in the vaccination line, with an occasional “mask issue”, and with just feeling CRAPPED OUT by this whole show. Thus I was feeling a small bit “PO’d” after viewing this. So I went and got a Culvers, and cooled off.

Paraquat Poison — Another Hazardous Chemical in Your Food

Each year the Environmental Working Group releases a list called “The Dirty Dozen” of produce that is most heavily contaminated with pesticides.1 The results are from an analysis of data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In 2021, strawberries, spinach and kale occupy the top three spots on the list, of which 90% of the samples tested positive for two or more pesticides.

Data from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which evaluates produce for pesticide residue, indicate that every time you eat conventionally grown fruit you’re likely consuming a measurable amount of pesticides.2 The FDA continues to assert that pesticide residue is not a cause for alarm, yet the long-term consequences of cumulative exposure are unknown.

The most current FDA report3 using data from 2018 was published in September 2020. The testing methods used in 2018 found 809 pesticides and industrial chemicals, and residues of 212 different pesticides in 4,404 human food samples tested in the program.

The FDA report revealed the list of pesticides included the organophosphate chlorpyrifos, which was detected in 228 samples.4 The chemical, known to disrupt brain development and cause brain damage, neurological abnormalities, reduced IQ and aggressiveness in children, has a half-life on food of several weeks, making nonorganic foods a major source of exposure.5

Neonicotinoids were also widespread in the samples, including imidacloprid that took the top spot found in 395 samples. These chemicals are known to impair the immune system of bees, making them more vulnerable to infection and death when exposed to viral or other pathogens.6

Although the report evaluated 27 selected herbicides, it did not include paraquat, which the EPA states is “one of the most widely used herbicides in the United States.”7

Paraquat Herbicide Has a History of Poisoning People

Paraquat dichloride, commonly shortened to paraquat, is the active ingredient in Gramoxone, which is an herbicide widely used in agricultural practices to control the growth of grasses and weeds.8 The chemical was developed in the 1960s and is active against most plant species.

Glyphosate was first registered in the U.S. in 1974.9 However as more glyphosate-resistant weeds are appearing, paraquat is becoming more popular once again.10 Farmers use it to clear fields of weeds and unwanted plants before planting soybeans and as a desiccant on legume crops.

The chemical is nonselective — meaning, according the National Pesticide Information Center, that it will kill most plants. It is inactivated when it comes in contact with soil,11 which agribusiness found to be one of the greatest breakthroughs at the time of discovery. This meant that once sprayed on the soil, it would kill the weeds, but no biologically active residues would remain, allowing farmers to plant almost immediately after spraying.

However, it is also highly toxic to humans and even one sip can kill a person. After exposure on the skin or if inhaled during the application, it can result in seizures, heart failure and lung scarring.12 In the 1970s, the U.S. government encouraged Mexico to spray marijuana fields with it in the hope it would kill the crops.13

Instead, what it produced were paraquat poisoned marijuana plants that were being harvested for commercial-grade marijuana and then sold.14 Once the leaves were burned and inhaled it began causing massive damage without a known antidote.

According to The New York Times15 in 1978, the dangers of inhaling, drinking or skin application of paraquat were not a secret to the U.S. State Department. According to The Intercept, the manufacturer was evaluating ways of ameliorating the danger in 1976 when Michael Rose, a scientist at Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), which was the current manufacturer of paraquat, produced the “Rose Report.”16

In collaboration with the French newspaper Le Monde,17 The Intercept scoured through hundreds of internal documents and thousands of pages disclosed by Syngenta, the successor to ICI and current manufacturer of paraquat. Documents were also supplied by nonprofit organizations that had been extensively researching paraquat and another chemical the company had added to induce vomiting in an effort to stem a rising toll of deaths from people ingesting the paraquat.

The additive was named PP796 and the problem appeared to be the concentration at which the chemical was added to paraquat. In the “Rose Report,” it appeared the scientists had “cherry-picked” the data to determine the concentration at which PP796 should be added.

At issue was the life-saving additive’s cost, which was the reason the company did not add the emetic to the chemical until deaths were being recorded around the world.18

The EPA Has Not Protected US Citizens

The company’s apparent motivation to finally add PP796 to Gramoxone in the U.S. came in 1986 when the U.S. EPA was considering subjecting the chemical to a special review that may have resulted in banning it from the market.19

In 1990, Jon Heylings, a junior scientist at Imperial Chemical Industries, discovered the concentration of PP796 was much less than would be needed to induce vomiting in case of accidental or suicidal consumption as was being reported globally. He reported the discrepancy to his superiors and believed it was being addressed.

More than 40 years after the “Rose Report” was published with the doctored calculations, Syngenta has not made alterations to the concentration of PP796, which Heylings describes as “a conspiracy within the company to keep this quiet.”

Additionally, papers released during litigation revealed that just one week before the “Rose Report” was released, another scientist at the company also reported the planned concentration of PP796 did not induce vomiting.20

PP796 was added to Gramoxone in other countries years before it was added in the U.S. In 1981, an ICI scientist discovered reports from the U.K. and Japan clearly showed the emetic was not effective. In a memo released by Syngenta, ICI scientist Peter Slade wrote:21

“No statistical evidence has emerged that the emetic has reduced the number of deaths with the product. At best, only a few people have survived paraquat poisoning because of the inclusion of the emetic.”

The company responded to questions from The Intercept, sending an email that emphatically denied that PP796 was ineffective at the concentration reported in the “Rose Report.”22 According to Syngenta, Heyling’s claims that the concentration of emetic is much too low have been investigated and dismissed by the current company scientists.23

In November 2019, EPA published new requirements,24 hoping to mitigate risks associated with the application of paraquat. To meet standards under these new rules companies only had to include label changes, target training materials for those using paraquat, restrict the use to people who are certified to apply the chemical and use a closed packaging system for applications of less than 120 gallons.

In other words, the EPA added a label to a highly toxic chemical that is lethal when just drops are consumed. Mandatory training can be taken online, and certification is given after the individual takes a quiz.

Paraquat Associated With Neurological Diseases

Evidence of an association between paraquat and Parkinson’s disease (PD) emerged in the 1980s.25 After the release of studies showing that animals and humans exposed to paraquat had an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, Syngenta mounted a defense.

The Intercept reported26 that documents released in the litigation showed the company had developed a strategy to address issues of neurotoxicity, which they believed to be a threat to their “business objectives,” and documents showed the company’s global regulatory manager advised taking steps to “shift the focus of serious PD research to other environmental factors.”

Based on scientific evidence, the European Union Court of Justice banned the pesticide in 2007, all while paraquat use continued to increase in the U.S. The number of poisonings and deaths continued to rise.

Although researchers continue to work on identifying the mechanism through which pesticides impact the neurological system,27 these chemicals are known neurotoxins, including paraquat, organophosphates and organochlorine. In addition to the immediate effects, long-term, low-dose exposure may also be harmful.28

Evidence has suggested that cumulative exposure can contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease as well.29 In one animal study, researchers investigated the effects that paraquat had on the development of beta-amyloid plaques and changes in cognition, finding there was an increase in oxidative damage in the mitochondria of the cerebral cortex that directly correlated with impaired learning and memory.

Other animal studies30 have demonstrated the chemical impairs memory, learning and cognition in offspring when exposed during development. Beyond Pesticides31 reports that there is mounting evidence in the past years indicating low levels of exposure to pesticides have an adverse effect on the central nervous system, including the development of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease and dementia-like diseases.

Many of the pesticides share features, including the ability to induce neuronal cell loss, mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress.32 Another study33 used MRI imaging to look at the poison’s effects on humans by focusinv on the acute neurotoxic damage caused by paraquat. They found a significant number of abnormal signals in the brains of survivors after the acute toxic phase.

The results demonstrated that paraquat exerted a sustained neurotoxic effect during the acute and recovery stages of poisoning. Another animal study demonstrated that long-term, low-level inhalation of paraquat caused some male mice to lose their sense of smell.34 The researchers35 suggest that this data supports the importance of identifying the route of exposure when evaluating neurotoxicity.

Danger Increases When Pesticide Is Used on Lectins

Choosing nongenetically modified plants can help to reduce your exposure to pesticides and herbicides. But even if you manage to avoid GMO foods, you still might be paraquat-affected because, at harvest, some farmers may use herbicides as a desiccant to quick-dry the plants and speed ripening in preparation for the harvesting machine.

Farmers can be penalized if grain is moist at harvest, so desiccation also helps to improve profits. Paraquat is one of the chemicals used as a desiccant, which becomes exponentially more hazardous when it’s combined with plant lectins.

Data published in the journal NPJ Parkinson’s Disease in 201836 revealed that when paraquat is combined with lectins it can trigger hallmark damage found in people with Parkinson’s disease. Lectins are compounds found in many plant foods, especially legumes such as peas, lentils, soybeans, beans and nuts.37

The study suggests that these changes to lectins are the key link between paraquat and the resulting increased risk of Parkinson’s disease. To address these concerns, in 1997 the EPA set residue tolerance levels for paraquat for 80 raw agricultural commodities, processed foods and animal feed.38

However, during the re-registration, their updates for the acceptable dietary exposure tolerances for certain crops, included more than doubling the levels allowed in sorghum, soybeans and hops, and establishing a tolerance level for popcorn.

In 2014,39 they updated residue tolerance levels for tuberous and corn vegetables, including ginger, potato and true yam, to 0.5 parts per million, which is one of the highest acceptable levels.

Between GMO crops and the act of desiccating the others with herbicides, this means that most plant-based foods that are conventionally grown are laced with dangerous levels of residual herbicides. Paradoxically, if the raw food found in your local grocery store isn’t enough worry, Bill Gates is now advocating that all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic “beef” like that manufactured by Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods.

According to the ingredient lists found on these fake meat products, many ingredients come from plants commonly sprayed with herbicides and desiccants. These include pea protein, mung bean, potatoes and soybeans.40

You can read more about Gates’ investments and plans to push many nations into a “full solution to the protein problem globally”41 in “Bill Gates Says He Will Force You to Eat Fake Meat.”

The irony that Gates, who lives in a 66,000 square-foot mansion and travels in a private jet that burns 486 gallons of fuel each hour, is talking about how we can save the environment, is not lost on everyone. The Nation criticized Gates’ contradictions, calling him a “Climate Warrior. And Super Emitter.” writing:42

“According to a 2019 academic study43 looking at extreme carbon emissions from the jet-setting elite, Bill Gates’s extensive travel by private jet likely makes him one of the world’s top carbon contributors — a veritable super emitter. In the list of 10 celebrities investigated — including Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, and Oprah Winfrey — Gates was the source of the most emissions.”

Reduce Your Risk With Locally Sourced Organic Produce

So, while Gates lives in a carbon-emitting heated and air conditioned 66,000 square-foot home, he advocates “saving” the environment by forcing the rest of us to eat highly processed plant-based foods laced with toxic chemicals. Now also the biggest U.S. farmland owner, Gates is calling plant-based and lab-grown meat substitutes “sustainable” and something that people can “get used to.”44

As I’ve already pointed out, it’s important to realize that exposure to pesticides and herbicides is not restricted to GMO plants. Even non-GMO foods may be contaminated when the herbicide is used as a desiccant immediately before harvest. And remember: The poison paraquat is considered one of the “best” drying options for legumes, which are high in lectins and therefore present an increased risk for toxic overload.

This means many of the foods that vegans and vegetarians rely on currently as their protein source pose a significant health risk. To avoid or at least minimize these hazards, it is important to buy organic beans, peas, potatoes and other foods high in lectins from a reliable source, ideally a local farmer you can trust and with whom you can discuss his farming methods.

Why Most People Are Deficient in Minerals

It’s estimated that 1 in 3 Americans is deficient in at least 10 minerals, including potassium, manganese, magnesium and zinc, putting them at risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.1

The Mineral Fix,” written by James DiNicolantonio, Pharm.D., with whom I co-wrote “Super Fuel,” and Siim Land, author of “Metabolic Autophagy,” provides a comprehensive guide about the role of essential minerals and why you need them to optimize physiological function and survival. There are 17 essential minerals, broken down into seven macrominerals and 10 trace minerals. There are another five minerals that are possibly essential.

The primary role of minerals is to act as cofactors for enzymes, but that’s just the bare minimum. “They literally are the shields for oxidative stress,” DiNicolantonio said, “because they make up our antioxidant enzymes. They help us produce and activate ATP, help us produce DNA, protein, so literally every function in the body is dependent, in some way, on minerals.”

Minerals’ role in the creation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) alone is a clue to their importance. As the energy currency in your body, ATP is essential for cellular functions throughout your body, including in your heart, which is dependent on sufficient amounts of ATP to function properly. DiNicolantonio believes that not getting enough minerals in your diet can be just as damaging as eating an unhealthy diet focused on sugar and seed oils.

Three Reasons Why You May Be Deficient in Minerals

About a third of the U.S. population is likely deficient in the below 10 minerals (estimated % not hitting RDA/AI or estimated % deficient):2

  1. Boron (> 75%)
  2. Manganese (~ 75%)
  3. Magnesium (52.2-68%)
  4. Chromium (56%)
  1. Calcium (44.1-73%)
  2. Zinc (42-47%)
  3. Iron (25-34%)
  1. Copper (25-31%)
  2. Selenium (15-40%)
  3. Molybdenum (15%)

DiNicolantonio cites three primary reasons why so many people are deficient, including the fact that our foods are more nutrient-depleted. People also aren’t selecting the right foods to hit optimal intakes of minerals, and chronic diseases states are compounding the problem.

For instance, gastrointestinal damage can decrease the amount of minerals you absorb, while if you are living in a high state of inflammation, it’s taxing to your system, which will increase the burn rate of minerals. Kidney damage increases the excretion of minerals, while high insulin levels will cause minerals to be excreted in your urine. “Those three key factors are why so many of us are depleted in so many minerals,” DiNicolantonio said.

Minerals for Antioxidant Defense and Immunity

You may associate antioxidants with vitamins, such as vitamins C and E, but minerals were the first antioxidants in living organisms. DiNicolantonio uses the example of blue-green algae that lived billions of years ago, producing oxygen and creating an abundance of oxidative stress. They utilized selenium and iodine as antioxidants. In humans, we use these similarly.

Iodine is an essential mineral that helps prevent polyunsaturated fats from oxidizing, provides your thyroid with the necessary nutrients to produce thyroid hormones, and is a natural antibacterial agent. Thyroid hormones are essential for normal growth and development in children, neurological development in babies before birth and in the first year of life, and in regulating your metabolism.3

However, DiNicolantonio said, thyroid hormones also act as antioxidants, with effects 100 times stronger than vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione. You need minerals, including iodine and selenium, to form your thyroid hormones, and your levels of powerful antioxidants like glutathione are directly dependent on your selenium and magnesium status.

There’s also superoxide anion, the product of a one electron reduction of oxygen, which is the precursor of most reactive oxygen species and a mediator in oxidative chain reactions.

These oxygen free radicals attack the lipids in your cell membranes, protein receptors, enzymes, and DNA that can prematurely kill your mitochondria. Superoxide dismutase neutralizes superoxide anion, but it depends on copper and zinc. DiNicolantonio explained:

“If you’re low in copper and zinc, you can’t neutralize the superoxide, it combines with nitric oxide, reducing your nitric oxide levels, increasing blood pressure, leading to atherosclerosis and heart disease, and then you form the toxic peroxynitrite. So it goes to show you how just having a low mineral status can lead to high inflammation.”

RDAs Are Inadequate

The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for many minerals may be inadequate to protect your health and don’t get you to the levels needed to optimize your antioxidant defenses, DiNicolantonio said, calling this issue the crux of their book.

RDAs are based on studies to make sure you’re not deficient, but this level isn’t the same as the one that will give you optimal health. In the case of enzymes dependent on vitamin C, for example, you need to consume 120 milligrams (mg) to 150 mg of vitamin C to make sure those enzymes are highly optimized, which is far more than the 6 mg to 8 mg of vitamin C needed to prevent scurvy.

“You can have up to a 1,000-fold difference between preventing deficiency and optimal intake,” according to DiNicolantonio. Magnesium is another example but with lower differences between deficiency and optimal. You only need about 150 mg to 180 mg a day to prevent deficiency, but optimal levels are closer to the 600 mg/day level.

For comparison, the RDA for magnesium is around 310 mg to 420 mg per day depending on your age and sex.4 But like DiNicolantonio, many experts believe you may need around 600 mg to 900 mg per day. As noted in Open Heart:5

“Investigations of the macro- and micro-nutrient supply in Paleolithic nutrition of the former hunter/gatherer societies showed a magnesium uptake with the usual diet of about 600 mg magnesium/day …

This means our metabolism is best adapted to a high magnesium intake … In developed countries, the average intake of magnesium is slightly over 4 mg/kg/day … [T]he average intake of magnesium in the USA is around 228 mg/day in women and 266mg/day in men …”

Another important point that DiNicolantonio makes is that simply increasing your mineral intake by taking supplements may not be enough, because you need to be insulin sensitive to utilize the minerals properly. If you’re insulin resistant, you can’t drive the minerals into the cells to work well, and you’ll be eliminating the minerals in urine as well.

“So really the first step,” he says, “is to eliminate the harmful substances that are causing you to be insulin resistant in the first place. That’s automatically going to boost your mineral status, because you’re going to be able to utilize those minerals better.”

Top Food Sources of Minerals

The best way to increase your mineral intake is via healthy foods. For copper and iron, for instance, DiNicolantonio recommends pairing muscle meat with liver, or eating oysters, which are also high in zinc. A lot of oysters may be contaminated with cadmium, however, so they should be eaten in moderation depending on where they’re sourced from.

One of the foods with the highest minerals overall are mussels. They’re high in manganese, chromium and copper, which are minerals many people are deficient in. Liver is another nutrient-dense food that’s rich in minerals, but it’s possible to overdo it.

According to DiNicolantonio, in terms of mineral consumption, one-half to 1 ounce of liver per day is the ideal amount, which will give you vitamin A, folate and copper. He recommends pairing this with about 10 to 12 ounces of pastured red meat per day, for the vitamin B12, protein, zinc and iron it provides.

If you don’t like the taste of liver, try a blend of meat made with pastured liver, heart and muscle meat. You can add in more pastured ground beef to make it more palatable and still reap the rich mineral benefits.

Women need more than twice the amount of iron as men, so animal-based sources of iron, which are 10 times more bioavailable than plant sources, are important. For those who don’t eat meat, combining vitamin C with beans, spinach and other iron-rich greens may help make the iron more bioavailable.

Benefits of Mineral Waters

It’s important to balance animal foods with alkaline minerals like potassium and magnesium from plant foods or mineral waters, which will balance out the acid and help protect your kidneys. Mineral waters that contain bicarbonate can help with this acid-base balance, while providing an additional source of minerals like calcium and magnesium.

Drinking mineral water with a meal is also beneficial and can increase mineral absorption while lowering postprandial blood sugar. It’s also useful to sip mineral water throughout the day, DiNicolantonio said, citing a study that found consuming 7 ounces of mineral water seven times a day increases magnesium absorption and retention by 40%, versus consuming larger amounts twice a day. He continued:

“It’s that slow infusion, which mimics more of an evolutionary intake — we would have just drank water throughout the day and it would have been natural. It wouldn’t be these artificially softened waters, it would be natural waters that contain bicarbonate, that contain magnesium, that contain calcium. So it’s something that I do.”

Less-Known Minerals That You May Be Missing

Minerals like boron often get overlooked, yet they’re extremely important for well-being and health. Boron, consumed at levels of about 3 mg daily, is beneficial for bone health and testosterone, but it’s thought that most Americans only consume about 1 mg.

The highest concentrations of boron are found in bones and tooth enamel and, according to the Natural Medicine Journal, it “appears to be indispensable for healthy bone function,”6 as it reduces excretion of calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.

There may also be other, as yet poorly understood, mechanisms by which it benefits bone-building and other aspects of health. The optimal dosage is unknown, but you can get significant amounts of this trace mineral by eating small amounts of raisins, peaches, prunes, dates, black currants and avocadoes.

A trace mineral supplement can also be helpful in optimizing your levels of “overlooked” minerals like boron, chromium and molybdenum. Chromium, which has been linked to improved blood sugar levels,7 can be found in mussels, lobster, crab and shrimp, as well as broccoli, in smaller amounts.

Further, chromium is lost in sweat, so you if sweat a lot due to living in a hot climate, sauna usage or exercise, a chromium supplement may be necessary, especially if you don’t regularly consume chromium-rich foods. Copper is another mineral lost through sweat, and since most people don’t consume much copper, it’s possible to lose more copper than you’ve taken in if you sweat heavily for about an hour a day.

Molybdenum is another often-overlooked mineral, which is an essential catalyst for enzymes to help metabolize fats and carbohydrates and facilitate the breakdown of certain amino acids in your body. The best dietary source of molybdenum, according to DiNicolantonio, is liver.

If you want to learn more, or are concerned that you’re not getting enough minerals, “The Mineral Fix” goes much more in-depth about the role of the 17 essential minerals your body needs, including optimal intake levels, symptoms of deficiency, how to test your mineral levels and best food sources.

Several "Great Reset" Proponents Recently Deceased…

This was sent to me, it apparently originated with the Sorcha Faal web site. Sorcha has a decades long reputation for being mostly disinformation, until it publishes something factual.   I don’t vouch for its accuracy other than these people are really dead.  My data says Putin is also dead, but there are at least 6 “Putini” (look-a-likes) so maybe Merkel was talking to one of those?

Message forward from Sorcha Faal

The transcript of this exchange is in both Russian and German, and because it notes President Putin and Chancellor Merkel are speaking German, this gives the best account of what they’re saying—and in English shows: Merkel: “Prince Charles lost another one…”—Putin: “That makes two…”—Merkel: “The first was his favorite you know…”—Putin: “Yes, I have been informed…”—Merkel: “This is not a coincidence…”—Putin: “We know that too…”.


The context surrounding this remarkable exchange between President Putin and Chancellor Merkel sees Prince Charles being a main proponent of “The Great Reset” socialist-globalist agenda—two of whose staunchest socialist-globalist allies for this agenda were Britain’s richest man Sir Richard Sutton, and Petr Kellner, the wealthiest man in the Czech Republic—with Prince Charles having first met Kellner when he visited the Czech Republic in 1991, and in 2009, saw Prince Charles leading the effort to select Kellner as a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum.


A fortnight ago, on 27 March, it was reported that Petr Kellner was killed in a mysterious helicopter crash in Alaska—then yesterday it was reported that Sir Richard Sutton was mysteriously stabbed to death at his home in the west of England—mysterious deaths that have now been joined by the news that the father of Prince Charles, Prince Phillip (the husband of Queen Elizabeth II) died in hospital at the age of 99.


The significance of President Putin and Chancellor Merkel both agreeing that the mysterious deaths of close Prince Charles socialist-globalist allies Sir Richard Sutton and Petr Kellner are not coincidental is monumental—specifically because it strongly suggests that these deaths are targeted killings sent as a message to those advocating for “The Great Reset”—and as one would expect to occur, as this socialist-globalist agenda seeks to remake the entire world, and whose powerful forces opposing it will never allow it happen—which is why President Putin warned these dangerous idiots at the World Economic Forum that the path they’re walking on is exactly like the one used in the 1930s, that predictably led to World War II… Sorcha Faal

Scientists at Sloan Kettering Discover mRNA Inactivates Tumor-suppressing Proteins, Meaning It Can Promote Cancer

(Derek Knauss) There’s a secret layer of information in your cells called messenger RNA, that’s located between DNA and proteins, that serves as a critical link. Now, in a medical shocker to the whole world of vaccine philosophy, scientists at Sloan Kettering found that mRNA itself carries cancer CAUSING changes – changes that genetic tests don’t even analyze, flying completely under the radar of oncologists across the globe.
