Addressing cops’ confusion over ‘the public duty doctrine’

Addressing cops’ confusion over ‘the public duty doctrine’

Proper training on the principles of the public duty doctrine and how it applies to police officers is essential to avoid liability on the part of the department and officers

Jan 5, 2012

Co-authored with Eric P. Daigle

The so-called public duty doctrine provides that “absent a special relationship between the governmental entity and the injured individual, the governmental entity will not be liable for injury to an individual… the governmental entity owes a duty to the public in general. The doctrine has been commonly described by the oxymoron, ‘duty to all, duty to none’.”1

The concept of “duty” establishes a great moral obligation in those who have taken an oath to serve and to protect the public. Officers are instilled with the principles of honor, integrity, and selflessness. As a result of these basic principles, officers often feel required to take action in certain situations when taking no action may actually be the best course of action. Often, officers believe that they have a legal obligation to act above and beyond what is actually required of them.

Law enforcement professionals’ lack of understanding of the legal principles of the public duty doctrine often leads to inappropriate actions on the part of the officer. In addition, the fear of liability for “failure to act,” and the personal code of honor that many sworn public servants hold, influences their decision take action at all costs to protect and defend life and property. While this desire to serve the public is commendable, police officers must understand that they have no obligation to protect any one individual unless a “special relationship” exists. Rather, an officer’s sworn duty is to the general public.

Confusion and Conflict
As a general rule, an individual has no duty to come to the aid of another. A person who has not created, by his words or deeds, a danger to another, is not liable for failure to take affirmative action to assist or protect another unless there is some relationship between them which gives rise to a duty to act.2 The application of these general principles in the area of law enforcement and other police activities has produced some confusion and conflict. The confusion is further exacerbated by widely-held misconceptions concerning the duty owed by police to individual members of the general public.3

By becoming a police officer, an individual does not give up his right to the protection of these general principles. A police officer does not “assume any greater obligation to others individually. The only additional duty undertaken by accepting employment as a police officer is the duty owed to the public at large.”4

Following these general principles, “California courts have found no duty of care and have denied liability ‘for injuries caused by the failure of police personnel to respond to requests for assistance, the failure to investigate properly, or the failure to investigate at all, where the police had not induced reliance on a promise, express or implied, that they would provide protection.’”5

The concept of a lack of any special duty owed to any individual member of society who is in need of assistance often flies in the face of law enforcement professionals who have taken an oath of office to “protect and defend.” The oath of office for law enforcement officers, however, as required by the California Constitution, does not mandate duty to an individual.6 Rather, the oath cites the support and defense of the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of California “against all enemies foreign and domestic.”7

In Our Nature to Help
While neither the California Constitution’s oath of office, nor the International Association of Chiefs of Police model oath of honor8, suggest that officers have duties other than the support and defense of the Constitution, and the maintenance of character, integrity, and public trust, no officer wants to see innocent individuals victimized or suffer harm of any sort.

One duty-dilemma issue, for example, may be the concern of contracting a fatal disease from performing CPR on a subject. Indeed, this is a real concern as just this past March, a deputy in Florida died five years after having contracted a virus while conducting CPR on an infant.9 Officers must discern the pros and cons of taking action in such a case to balance this unlikely tragic outcome against the more likely heartbreaking consequence of failing to act in a timely manner.

An officer’s misconception of his duty owed to the individual, however, may cause that officer to believe he has no choice but to provide assistance in the matter. While the officer is under no legal obligation to render aid to any one individual, once that officer decides to render aid to a victim, a special relationship may be established that produces a duty to an individual.

Examples from Case Law
Federal and State case law provide, for example, that:

a police officer’s failure, upon stopping an automobile, to advise the passenger to leave the vehicle and find other transportation was not an actionable breach of duty to the passenger10
an officer owed no duty of care to a tow truck driver struck by a passing vehicle while working an accident scene because the officer did not create or increase the risk of harm that led to the injuries11
no duty existed where a police officer, upon responding to a disturbance, confiscated a gun that was later returned to the individual through department procedure and was used sometime thereafter to shoot the complainant because the initial seizure of the weapon did not establish a special relationship with complainant that would continue indefinitely12
a police officer owed no duty to order an accident victim who had sustained a spinal injury not to leave the scene13
police officers who recognized an assailant as a likely perpetrator of a prior assault, and conducted surveillance of assailant in a Laundromat in which the victim was present, did not establish a special relationship between the officers and the victim to impose a duty on the officers to protect the victim from the assailant14
a police officer, who stopped a motorcyclist for speeding but did not perform field sobriety test, had no legal duty to use due care to recognize signs of intoxication and prevent the motorcyclist from continuing to drive, and therefore, was not liable when the driver was involved in an accident ten minutes later15

Courts typically find that no duty has been established and deny recovery for “injuries caused by the failure of police personnel to respond to requests for assistance, the failure to investigate properly, or the failure to investigate at all, where the police had not induced reliance on a promise, express or implied, that they would provide protection.”16For example, a plaintiff was unable to establish a duty on behalf of police when police failed to respond to a plea for assistance forty-five minutes before a homicide.17

The courts, however, have found that police officers may create a “special relationship” with individuals in certain circumstances, thereby establishing a duty of care to that individual. This “special relationship” may be created when an officer performs an affirmative act which places a person in peril or increases the risk of harm. For example, an officer who investigated an accident and instructed an individual to follow him to the middle of the intersection, where the individual was hit by another car, established a duty of care for that person;18 a highway patrol officer established a duty to an individual when he parked his vehicle with lights engaged behind the stalled motorist, but later left the scene without warning the motorist who had relied upon his protection and was struck by another car.19

Departmental Policy
Some departments have internal policies that stipulate the circumstances in which a special relationship may exist. The San Jose (Calif.) Police Department’s policy for rendering first aid, for example, states that officers who have begun rendering aid have created a special relationship with a victim and now have a duty to continue providing care unless one or more of the following conditions is present:

1.) The scene becomes unsafe,
2.) The officer is too physically exhausted to continue,
3.) The officer is relieved by someone of same or higher medical authority, or
4.) The victim revives20

A source of confusion for some officers may be that while federal law is clear that there is no liability for failure to act when no special relationship exists between law enforcement and an individual, some liability may exist in certain situations where the state legislature enacts laws mandating an officer’s duty to take action.21 One such state-mandated duty to an individual arises in the area of domestic violence. Throughout the country for many years, officers failed to take seriously the dangers of family violence. As a result, states enacted legislation mandating special provisions and protections for victims of child and spousal abuse. 22 As further documented in the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training domestic violence workbook23, these requirements include that officers shall make every reasonable effort to identify the “dominant aggressor,” shall complete a report in all domestic violence cases, and shall take custody of any firearm or deadly weapon in plain sight.

A Solemn Pledge
While legislated exceptions to the public duty doctrine exist, the officer must still understand that in only certain circumstances will he be exposed to liability for failure to act. This misunderstanding can lead an officer to take inappropriate action which violates an individual’s constitutional rights and could ultimately lead to litigation against the officer and the department.

Law enforcement personnel are moral and honorable public servants. Most sworn officers take their oaths of office as a solemn pledge — a pledge to safeguard life and property. Officers lose their lives every day attempting to fulfill this oath. Officers, however, often put themselves at risk because they incorrectly believe that they have a duty to act when, in fact, no such duty exists. Officers must balance the pros and cons of taking action against the rights, responsibilities, and the limitations of the profession imposed upon them by the Constitution, statute, and case law.

Proper training on the principles of the public duty doctrine and how it applies to police officers is essential to avoid liability on the part of the department and officers. The training should include a full and comprehensive review of the exceptions to this doctrine and any statutory requirements to act or protect individuals, as well as those situations in which, through an officer’s actions or omissions, create a “special relationship” resulting in a duty to persons.

What Binge Watching Can Physically Do To Your Body

I’m sure that you hesitated before choosing to read this article, as most of us have been sucked into a binge watching marathon on more than one occasion (myself included). While it may seem like we’re buckling down to give ourselves a break, we may actually be hurting ourselves far more than we realize. Sitting for prolonged periods of time has proven to be harmful to our bodies, especially for adults over 50, and when you match lounging with television, you create a deadly combo.

In an Australian study published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, researchers examined more than 8,900 adults and found that each additional hour of TV viewing was associated with a 12% increased risk of inflammatory-related death, and those who spent more than four hours a day watching TV were at an even higher risk.

In general, watching television has proven to negatively impact mental health; it alters your brain, lowers your attention span, and has the potential to make you more aggressive. You don’t need to experience the “trance-like” state television can put us in, but I’m sure you’ve witnessed it before. This trance occurs roughly 30 seconds after you start watching TV. Your brain begins by producing alpha waves, leading to a light hypnotic state that makies the viewer less aware of their environment and more open to subtle messages — aka programming.

In the 1990s. Dr. Teresa Belton, a visiting fellow at the University of East Anglia, studied the effects that television has on the imagination of 10-12 year old children, ultimately concluding that television negatively impacts their development: “The ubiquity and ease of access to television and videos perhaps robs today’s children of the need to pursue their own thoughts and devise their own occupations, distracting them from inner processes and constantly demanding responses to external agendas, and suggests that this may have implications for the development of imaginative capacity.”

And these physical affects are becoming increasingly apparent. Not only does it eventually lead to immobility as you age, but with the risk of creating inflammation in the body, you are susceptible to a host of diseases including kidney disease, diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer’s, and even depression.

Dr. Megan Grace is the lead investigator at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne. Between 1999 and 2000, her team quizzed adult participants about their viewing habits via a questionnaire. Again, this was before we had access to popular streaming websites like Netflix. The participants were separated into three groups based on their TV viewing habits: less than two hours per day, greater than two hours but less than four hours, and more than four hours.

“TV time was associated with increased risk of inflammatory-related mortality. This is consistent with the hypothesis that high TV viewing may be associated with a chronic inflammatory state,” the authors wrote.

They followed up with their participants 12 years later and found, of 909 deaths, 130 were inflammatory-related. Of the inflammatory-related deaths, 21 were from diseases of the respiratory system and 18 of the nervous system, and those who watched between two to four hours of TV a day showed a 54% higher risk of inflammatory-related death. Additionally, people who watched more than four hours of TV a day doubled their risk of dying from an inflammatory disease compared to those who watched two hours.

In addition to cutting down the amount of time you spend sitting in front of the TV and sitting or lying down, you can help combat inflammation with a number of foods like avocados, berries, sweet potato, onions, and watermelon, and herbs like, cloves, ginger, rosemary, and turmeric.



‘Faces of Ancient Europe’ Blocked in Europe for No Apparent Reason — Unless European Cultural Pride is Now ‘Offensive’ and ‘Hateful’

The Internet Watch Foundation’s (IWF) original charter was to monitor and block child sexual abuse material online. This was driven by direct requests made by individual customers. IWF is a QUANGO, or a quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisation. As such, it performs governmental functions, often in receipt of funding or other support from government.

In recent years, IWF and similar entities extended their sway to include so-called racist materials and have passed on URLs to social media providers like YouTube and Facebook. Included among flagged content is a category defined as “hateful.” Of late, the Orwellian term “offensive” has cropped up as well. Many countries in Europe use IWF blacklists to block YouTube videos.

But apparently “offensive” doesn’t include XXXtension’s viral white-child hanging video. Try your luck at reporting this one to IWF. We have. The New Nationalist (TNN) is now challenging IWF’s charter. It has become more lax on child abuse and morphed into an Orwellian tool.

In recent months, TNN noted European YouTube content has become more and more restrictive with country blocks a common occurrence. Additionally, when an IP address in Europe switches to VPN and directs to the U.S., one can expect to experience buffering issues and often are never able to view the content. So far, most European blocks are viewable from non-VPN directed U.S. IP addresses — but we are watching. However, the method in the U.S. is now to put whole sites into the memory hole.

A prima facie example of how extreme this witch hunt for “hateful and offensive” content reporting has become: One of our favorite YouTube channels, the fabulous “Faces of Ancient Europe,” is country blocked in Europe. As of this writng you will see this on their one month and older videos.  It has a modest following of 8,157 subscribers. TNN has used some of its content in our Video Spotlight widget in the right column of the home page. The name is a misnomer, because this is an amazing collection of pre-modern European art, architecture, culture, mythology and history. Most of this is outside of the Kosher-approved inversion art Matrix.

The site is definitely pro-European pride, but there is no narrative in the videos. If you examine the hundreds of videos Faces has online, you will see only two illustrative of “National Socialist” art. There are also a few German sculptors from the pre-WWII era who are blacklisted because they failed to resist. But mostly, the site has scores of European artists whose primary offense is simply nationalism. There is one Europa heritage video TNN would characterize as tame.

It is not the Internet provider doing this, as this site is fully viewable at VidMe, which is one of the new generations of video sharing services that has emerged to counteract You Tube censorship.

While we call out IWF as an example of a censorship organization, it should be noted that we are not saying it is directly responsible for the European block of “Faces of Ancient Europe.” There are new QUANGOs sprouting up. We don’t know on whose blacklist Faces appears — and that’s another important point: There’s no accountability- the Memory Hole perps can hide under rocks and out of sight.

TNN’s takeway: Faces is blocked simply because it doesn’t follow the multicultural narrative, and because it effectively promotes traditional Europeanism. Thus, this site and the artists highlighted are being cast into the Memory Hole.

FULL SPEECH [9-19-17, on RT]: “Trump addresses world problems at the 72nd UN General Assembly”

Click image to go to 8:12 in the video.

I felt drawn to post this after viewing a note by PAB on FB. I add Peter’s comment:

“THE PEOPLE ARE SOVEREIGN. The “awake” good people of the internet, around the world, know.. ALL good people, are sovereign.. AND President Trump, just let it be known, that, HE ALSO KNOWS IT..!!

“This.. of course goes clean against what those pushing the New World Order “Holy” agenda are trying to bring about..!”

The theme of individual personal and individual country sovereignty is being “put out there” by President Trump quite often. Also he continually speaks about taking care of the US country and its people first, and assisting the rest of the world after that. And that is what struck me from this speech. I suggest starting at 8:12 and listening for a few minutes.

From the beginning, I have “got” that in one way or another, President Trump is indeed working with an alliance to bring constructive change to this planet. I still believe that, and “feel” it.

There are surely some things I will not align with from that speech, but that particular “sovereignty snippet” really “stood out” for me, and that is what I primarily wanted to share.

The Real Dangers of Electronic Devices and EMFs

By Dr. Mercola

I was recently interviewed by Dave Asprey when I visited his Bulletproof lab on Vancouver Island.1 In it, I review the real dangers of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted by electronic devices. I will also do a more comprehensive lecture on this topic at Asprey’s Bulletproof Conference October 13 through 15 at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, California.

Avoiding excessive EMF exposure is an important component of optimizing mitochondrial health. In fact, this is going to be the topic of my next book. Like my latest best-seller, “Fat for Fuel,” which details my metabolic mitochondrial therapy program, I want the book on EMFs to be peer-reviewed by the leading scientists and researchers in the world who understand the truth and are free of industry corruption.

The key is to translate the science into clear and understandable language, and offer practical recommendations on how to remediate the problem. After all, we are swimming in an invisible ocean of EMFs just about everywhere you go these days. It’s near-impossible to avoid microwave exposure completely, but there are ways to reduced it, for sure.

Your Cellphone Is a Major Source of EMF Exposure

As noted by Asprey, his studio is hard-wired, and that’s one simple way to reduce exposure from Wi-Fi. You can also shut your Wi-Fi down whenever you’re not using it, and certainly at night when you’re sleeping. When using your cellphone, use the speaker phone and hold the phone 3 feet away from you, using a selfie stick. I’ve measured the radiation and you decrease your exposure by about 90 percent this way.

When not in use, make sure your cellphone is in airplane mode and/or keep it in a Faraday bag. These are just a few quick examples of how you can protect your health while still living in modern society. I have carefully measured the radiation coming from my phone and even when it is on and not calling someone the radiation doesn’t come down to safe ranges until I am 25 feet away, which is why I keep my phone in airplane mode most of the time and only use it for emergencies or when I am traveling.

It took me awhile to figure this out. I got rid of all the wireless devices and Wi-Fi in my house, yet the EMFs were still high. Then I finally realized that it was my phone (while on) that caused it. My levels dropped below 0.01 volts/meter once I put it in airplane mode. This is a key point. For nearly everyone reading this, the majority of the radiation you’re exposed to is not coming from the outside into your home; it’s coming from the items in your home.

Nonthermal Damage

Most of the radiation we’re exposed to today is microwave radiation, which does include radiation from your microwave oven. If you still have one, I recommend replacing it with a steam convection oven, which will heat your food just as quickly but far more safely. When you turn that microwave oven on, it will expose you to very dangerous microwave radiation at levels that are far in excess of your cellphone. We’re not talking about thermal (heat) damage here. We’re talking about nonthermal damage.

I recently interviewed Martin Pall, Ph.D., who has identified and published several papers describing the molecular mechanisms of how EMFs from cellphones and wireless technologies damage plants, animals and humans.2,3,4,5 Many studies have shown that when you’re exposed to EMFs, intracellular calcium increases. Pall also discovered a number of studies showing that you can block or greatly reduce the effects of EMFs using calcium channel blockers — medication commonly prescribed to patients with heart disease.

This turns out to be a crucial point, because it’s the excess calcium in the cell and the increased calcium signaling that are responsible for a vast majority of the biological effects of EMFs.

Pall has discovered no less than 26 papers showing that EMFs work by activating voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs), which are located in the outer membrane of your cells. Once activated, they allow a tremendous influx of calcium into the cell — about 1 million calcium ions per second per VGCC.

Importantly, the cellular membrane is 7 million times more sensitive to EMFs than the charged particles inside and outside of the cells, which are what safety standards are based on. In other words, the safety standards are off by a factor of 7 million!

A Chain Reaction of Harm

When there’s excess calcium in the cell, it increases levels of both nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide. While NO has many beneficial health effects, massively excessive NO reacts with superoxide, forming peroxynitrite, which is an extremely potent oxidant stressor.

Peroxynitrites, in turn, break down to form reactive free radicals, both reactive nitrogen species and reactive oxygen species (ROS), including hydroxyl radicals, carbonate radicals and NO2 radicals — all three of which do damage. Peroxynitrites also do damage all on their own.

So, EMFs are not “cooking” your cells. It’s not a thermal influence. Rather, the radiation activates the VGCCs in the outer cell membrane, which triggers a chain reaction of devastating events that, ultimately, decimates your mitochondrial function and causes severe cellular damage and DNA breaks. It also decimates your cell membranes and cellular proteins. In a nutshell, it dramatically accelerates the aging process.

Common EMF-Related Health Problems

As noted by Asprey, he used to keep his cellphone in a pants pocket on his right leg. He now has 10 percent less bone density in his right femur, which he believes is related to carrying his cellphone there. Needless to say, he no longer carries his phone on his body. Now, since the biological damage is triggered by activation of your VGCCs, it stands to reason that tissues with the highest densities of VGCCs will be more prone to harm.

So, which tissues have the highest concentration of VGCC’s? Your brain, the pacemaker of your heart, your nervous system, retina and male testes. Indeed, studies dating back to the 1950s and ’60s show the nervous system is the organ that is most sensitive to EMFs. Some of these studies show massive changes in the structure of neurons, including cell death and synaptic dysfunction.

When the VGCCs are activated in the brain they release neurotransmitters and neuroendocrine hormones, and elevated VGCC activity in certain parts of the brain has been shown to produce a variety of neuropsychiatric effects. Among the most common consequences of chronic EMF exposure to the brain are: 6

Common heart problems linked to EMF exposure include:

  • Cardiac arrhythmias (associated with sudden cardiac death)
  • Atrial fibrillation / atrial flutter
  • Premature atrial contractions (PACs) and premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), also known as heart palpitations
  • Tachycardia (fast heartbeat) and brachycardia (slow heartbeat)

Many who suffer these conditions are on dangerous drugs. If you have any kind of heart or brain-related condition, you really need to take EMF exposure seriously, and take steps to remediate it. There’s simply no question about it — EMF exposure can trigger these and many other conditions. The drug is not treating the cause of the problem, and if you truly want to get well, you need to address the causes. EMFs may not be the sole contributor, but it’s a significant one that should not be overlooked.

Reproductive Effects and Cancer

EMF exposure may also increase a man’s risk for infertility if he wears his cellphones near his groin and/or uses a laptop on his lap, and a woman’s risk for breast cancer is higher if she tucks her cellphone in her bra. Studies have linked low-level electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure from cellphones to an 8 percent reduction in sperm motility and a 9 percent reduction in sperm viability.7,8

Wi-Fi equipped laptop computers have also been linked to decreased sperm motility and an increase in sperm DNA fragmentation after just four hours of use.9 In regard to breast cancer, the most common location for breast cancer is the upper, outer quadrant. When the cancer is located in the upper, inner quadrant, it’s more likely to be related to cellphone radiation (if you’ve been carrying your phone in your bra).

How to Lower Your Exposure

The first step to lower your exposure would be to identify the most significant sources. Your cellphone is a major source of exposure, as are cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth headsets and other Bluetooth-equipped items, wireless mice, keyboards, smart thermostats, baby monitors, smart meters and the microwave in your kitchen. Ideally, address each source and determine how you can best limit their use. For example, remedial interventions could include:

Swapping a wireless baby monitor for a hardwired one

Carrying your cellphone in a bag instead of on your body, and keeping it in airplane mode and/or in a Faraday (shielded) bag or case when not on a call

Turning off your Wi-Fi at night. Even better, don’t use Wi-Fi and switch to wired Ethernet

Using your laptop on a table rather than your lap

Using your cellphone with a headset or on speaker phone, and keeping the phone as far away from your body as possible using a selfie stick. Ideally, use landlines whenever possible

Hardwiring as many devices as possible to avoid Wi-Fi fields. This includes mice, keyboards and printers. Avoid Ethernet over power (EOP), however, as this strategy increases the variability in your power lines, causing dirty electricity. You can partially remediate this with capacitors or filters, but it’s not an ideal solution. EOP is better than Wi-Fi, but not as good as running an Ethernet cable

Installing a Faraday cage (copper- and/or silver-threaded fabric) around your bed. If you live in a high-rise and have neighbors beneath you, place the Faraday fabric on the floor beneath your bed as well. This may significantly improve your sleep quality, as EMFs are known to disrupt sleep

If you have a smart meter, take steps to have it removed and replaced with an old analog meter. If your area is planning on installing them, be proactive in preventing its installation. For more information about this and guidance on how to go about preventing smart meter installation or getting it reversed, see “InPower: A Mass Action of Liability

To identify EMF sources you might not have considered, it would be a worthwhile investment to buy a microwave meter. The Cotnet ED88T10 is likely the best low cost meter out there, but their manual is terrible so you need to watch this video by Lloyd Burrell to learn how to use it.

When I travel, I’ll check the room in which I’m staying to determine the best side of the bed to sleep on. I’ve found there can be a tenfold difference between one side of the bed and the other. The Trifield meter is quite popular, but it’s important to realize that Trifield meters only measure magnetic fields, not microwave radiation.

Nutritional Intervention

Nutritional intervention can also help reduce the harmful effects of EMFs. It’s not a permanent solution you can use in lieu of remediation, but it can be helpful while you’re implementing more permanent solutions. The first is magnesium, as magnesium is a natural calcium channel blocker. Many are deficient in magnesium to start with, and I believe many may benefit from as much as 1 to 2 grams of magnesium per day.

Increasing Nrf2 is also helpful. NRf2 is a biological hormetic that upregulates superoxide dismutase, catalase and all the other beneficial intercellular antioxidants. It also:

  • Lowers inflammation
  • Improves mitochondrial function
  • Stimulates mitochondrial biogenesis
  • Helps detoxify the body from xenobiotics, carbon-containing toxicants and toxic metals
  • Activates the transcription of over 500 genes in the human genome, most of which have cytoprotective functions. This includes the three genes that encode enzymes required for synthesis of reduced glutathione, which is one of the most important antioxidants produced in your body

You can activate Nrf2 by:

  • Consuming Nrf2-boosting food compounds such as sulforaphane from cruciferous vegetables, foods high in phenolic antioxidants, the long-chained omega-3 fats DHA and EPA, carotenoids (especially lycopene), sulfur compounds from allum vegetables, isothiocyanates from the cabbage group and terpenoid-rich foods
  • High-intensity exercises that activate the NO signaling pathway, such as the NO dump exercise
  • Calorie restriction (such as intermittent fasting)

The Benefits of Molecular Hydrogen  

Another helpful supplement is molecular hydrogen. Tyler LeBaron’s website,,11 lists several hundred studies relating to hydrogen. You can also find a number of his lectures on YouTube. In summary, molecular hydrogen consists of two atoms of hydrogen, the smallest molecule in the universe, which:

  • Is a neutral molecule that can defuse across any cell membrane, instantly
  • Has no polarity
  • Is a potent, selective antioxidant

Free radicals are actually important; they do serve health functions. The problem is excess free radicals, or the wrong ones. Molecular hydrogen has been shown to target free radicals produced in response to radiation, such as peroxynitrites. Studies have shown molecular hydrogen can mitigate about 80 percent of this damage. The take home message is it can be quite valuable when flying, for example, to counteract the damage caused by gamma rays encountered at 35,000 feet.

Your body actually makes hydrogen gas, about 10 liters a day, which benefits your body. However, when you have a steady state of exposure, you don’t get the other benefits, so you want to pulse it. That’s where you get the benefit. I’ve taken molecular hydrogen tablets on my last few flights, and it worked great. There are a number of different ways to get it, but the most practical way is to take molecular hydrogen tablets.

Once you’re at about 5,000 to 10,000 feet, put the tablet in a small bottle of lukewarm water. Put the cap back on and leave it on while the tablet dissolves to prevent the gas from escaping. Once dissolved, drink it as quickly as possible. The hydrogen gas will continue working for about two hours, so if you’re on a longer flight, you may want to do a second dose halfway through.

Also consider joining me at the Bulletproof Conference October 13 through 15 in Pasadena, California, where I will deliver a keynote lecture that will go into this topic at greater depth. During one of the breakout sessions I’ll also share some of my favorite biohacks.

Ketogenic Diet Recipe: Delectable Asparagus With Soft-Boiled Eggs, Capers and Bone Marrow Broth

Recipe by Pete Evans


I’ve recently worked with renowned chef Pete Evans to create
a specialized cookbook focusing on the ketogenic diet that will greatly complement
my latest book, “Fat for Fuel.” The cookbook, scheduled to be released November
14, will feature recipes to help you fully apply the ketogenic diet into your
daily routine.


To celebrate the upcoming release, Pete Evans has shared
with us a very appealing way to combine vegetables, meat and healthy fat in one
recipe. The beef bone marrow provides the vegetables and the eggs with a deep
flavor the whole family will enjoy. The dish requires some time and effort to
prepare, but I guarantee that the results will be worth it once you’re done




2 pounds of beef marrowbones, cut into 2-inch

4 1/4 cups of organic beef stock

1 teaspoon of raw apple
cider vinegar

1 teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme leaves

3 bunches of asparagus, trimmed

4 organic free-range eggs

2 tablespoons of coconut
, plus extra as needed

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons of baby capers, rinsed

1 tablespoon of chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 tablespoons of pine nuts, toasted

Sorrel (preferably red-vein)




To make the bone marrow broth,
remove the marrow from the bones, slice the marrow into one-half inch-thick
pieces and set aside.

Heat the beef stock in a saucepan for 15 to 30
minutes over medium heat and reduce by just over half, or until 1 1/2 cups
remain. Add the vinegar, thyme, sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to
taste; set aside and keep warm.

Cook the asparagus in boiling salted water until
tender but still slightly crisp, about one minute, then drain. Plunge in cold
water to stop the asparagus from cooking further, and then set aside.

To prepare the eggs, bring a pot filled with
water to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and add the
whole eggs with shells to the pot. Cook for five minutes (for soft-boiled), or
adjust the cooking time to your liking. Remove with a slotted spoon and then
peel off the shells.

Warm a frying pan over medium heat, gently heat
the oil and then add the garlic and cook until it starts to brown, about one
minute. Add the asparagus, capers, salt and pepper, then cook, tossing the pan
until the asparagus turns slightly golden all over, for about 30 seconds.

To finish the bone marrow broth: In another
frying pan over medium heat, add a little oil and pan-fry the bone marrow for
30 seconds on each side, or until lightly browned. Add the reduced broth to the
bone marrow and bring to a boil, then remove from the heat.


To serve, divide the asparagus among four serving plates and
spoon over the caper dressing from the pan. Cut the eggs in half and top the
asparagus with the egg halves. Garnish with pine nuts and sorrel, spoon over a
generous portion of the bone marrow reduction and finish with freshly cracked
black pepper to serve.


Note: This recipe
makes four servings.


Coconut Oil and Free-Range Eggs Provide Healthy Fats


The core of the ketogenic diet is
healthy fat, and one easy way of adding it to your diet is by using coconut oil
during cooking. Research has found that it contains medium-chain
triglycerides (MCTs)
that may promote a variety of benefits, such as:


your energy:
Your liver immediately converts MCTs into ketones that provide
you with a clean source of energy that is healthier than carb-loaded foods.

The lauric acid in coconut oil can help destroy harmful microbes
and control pathogenic microorganisms from spreading in your system.

MCTs help you feel full longer, thereby helping you prevent
overeating and gaining excess weight.


Eggs, on the other hand, are a great source of omega-3 fat. Many studies
have been published about the health benefits of omega-3, and I can’t stress
enough that you need to include it in your diet regularly because your body
can’t make it on its own.


Omega-3s have been found to help normalize and regulate your
triglyceride levels more efficiently compared to statins, and may even keep
your brain functioning properly by helping lower your risk of cognitive
dysfunction, memory loss and other neurological conditions. Needless to say,
everyone can benefit from this important fat to help keep their mind in top


Asparagus Has Dietary Fiber and Nutrients Your Body Needs


If you’re looking for a vegetable with well-rounded
benefits, asparagus should be at the top of your list. It is low in fat,
cholesterol and sodium, while being abundant in various vitamins, most notably
folate (also known as vitamin B9) that may help promote tissue growth and proper
cell function, as well as stimulating the production of digestive acids.[i]
Furthermore, asparagus may help with the following:[ii]


The vitamin K content in asparagus can help your blood clot better if
you have wounds and cuts, while the B vitamins can help regulate homocysteine,
an amino acid linked to heart disease when there is an excess of it.

Glutathione found in asparagus may help give you radiant skin by
protecting it from sun damage and pollution.

Asparagus comes with generous amounts of dietary fiber that may
help promote regular elimination of bowels. It also contains a unique prebiotic
fiber called inulin. When it reaches the large intestine, inulin nurtures your gut
probiotics to help improve nutrient absorption from the other foods you eat.

your risk of
Type 2 diabetes: According
to a 2012 study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, asparagus has
been found to help improve insulin secretion and beta cell function in diabetic


Beef Bone Marrow Contains Unique Nutrients, Along With a Tasty Flavor


Marrow is the spongy, gelatinous tissue found inside the long
bones of animals, and is known for its dense, rich and fatty flavor. It’s not typically
cooked in American homes, but it is a popular delicacy in Europe and Asia.[iv]


I recommend you give it a try not only for its very beefy
flavor, but also because bone marrow may be healthy for you. According to the
University of Michigan Health System, the fat tissue is a potent source of
adiponectin, a hormone that may help reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity-related cancers.[v]
Additionally, it may help:[vi]


your immune system:
Bone marrow contains a selection of various minerals
that may help with immune support.

Calcium, phosphorus and magnesium from bone marrow may help build
stronger bones.

sleep quality:
Bone marrow may help you sleep better, leaving you
well-rested once you wake the next day.

your joints:
The glucosamine in bone marrow may help protect your joints
from inflammatory diseases like osteoarthritis.


Be Sure to Use High-Quality Ingredients When Cooking This Dish


To maximize the flavor and the nutrients you can obtain from
this recipe, be sure to use organic ingredients, especially for the bone
marrow, spices and vegetables. This also ensures that
you’re minimizing your risk of ingesting harmful toxins, antibiotics and other
pollutants that are lurking inside the ingredients. Similarly, the eggs should
be sourced from local, organic, free-range farms to guarantee that you’re
consuming high-quality poultry products.

David Wilcock FULL article 9-23-17… “Personal and Global Attacks Become Lethal: Is the Disclosure War Reaching a Climax? [Part I]”

Okay, this is a posting with the full text (no images or links). I’ve also added a few highlights. This just came out this morning.

And now David has added a couple of numerical synchronicity updates, including a 666 followed by a 777.

“So much has happened since our last update a month ago that it is difficult to summarize everything. Are these events interconnected? The answer definitely appears to be yes.

“The SSP narrative is so far removed from conventional reality that it seems almost impossible to imagine something like this ever becoming common, public knowledge. However, anyone who has studied UFO lore has heard that the US government acquired craft with interstellar travel capabilities ever since the Roswell Crash of 1947… these craft were “reverse engineered,” leading to working models being built out of them with our own technology. If we could cruise around our solar system within a few years after Roswell, that means our military-industrial complex has had nearly 70 years to establish manned bases out there. The amount of money that has gone missing is vastly, vastly greater than what it would cost to build a fleet of reverse-engineered, advanced spacecraft.


“Just after I wrote the last article, William Tompkins died — and he was our valuable eyewitness to the US’s discovery of the Nazi SSP in WWII. He revealed that the Nazis had cut a deal with sinister reptilian ETs many insiders call the Draco… Tompkins also was instrumental in designing prototypes for massive “space submarines” that became part of the Solar Warden program Corey was involved in.

“Even stranger was that Bill died just hours before the total solar eclipse — which is in keeping with the Cabal’s method of doing ceremonial assassinations. Graham Hancock nearly died the week before, as we will discuss. This happened within days of when the brakes went out on my car.

“Pete Peterson recently validated much of Goode and Tompkins on Cosmic Disclosure. This is a show I host on Gaia, the “Netflix of Seeking Truth.”… When we last checked in, Pete was under threat of having everything stolen. Day after day we have watched this continue. Nothing has been able to stop it. Pete has now had his house emptied to the bare walls by agents of the bank. The current sheriff has nothing to do with this operation and is innocent.

“My insider friend ‘Paul,’ who personally autopsied about 2000 different types of ET corpses, and had been working closely with me, also lost everything he owned. This event occurred only three days after I leaked his new testimony about the “Zombie Program,” using advanced cloning technology, on August 14th.

“THANKS AGAIN FOR HELPING PETE — HE NEEDS IT… You stepped up marvelously to help Pete rebuild from this devastating loss, for which I greatly appreciate your help. So far we have raised over 53 thousand dollars to help him rebuild. This was a stunning demonstration of public support:

“Pete will be making a public statement thanking you for your amazing generosity in the near future. I will probably bring him on the radio. He is using the money to finance the construction of a new lab, so his valuable technical work can continue forward.

The bank has… completely broken the law by failing to move the items to a storage facility that we could then reimburse them for, and recover the valuables… We are trying to file motions to have this elevated to a criminal charge and I will keep you posted.”


Personal and Global Attacks Become Lethal: Is the Disclosure War Reaching a Climax? [Part I]

Unprecedented solar emissions. Huge wildfires smoking out the US. Massive earthquakes. Three different monster hurricanes that steered perfectly into Houston, Florida and Puerto Rico.

Damages to the already fragile US economy could easily exceed 1 trillion dollars — at a time when there is nothing left to restore it with.

Within the UFO / Seeking Truth community, we saw the tragic deaths of Jim Marrs and William Tompkins — as well as the possible attempted murders of Graham Hancock and David Wilcock, as we will discuss in Part Two.

David’s insider ‘Paul’ had everything he owned stolen from him, as well as serious death threats. Pete Peterson’s house has now been emptied to the bare walls and his trailers, packed with priceless classified items, are under imminent threat.

A massive, coordinated online attack against Corey Goode, including the destruction of his business and the expected loss of his children, was intended to lead to a fake, staged ‘suicide’, made believable by his overall anticipated collapse.

This all occurred shortly after Ancient Aliens, a top History Channel show, featured Corey Goode and William Tompkins’ Secret Space Program testimony in an episode entitled “The Majestic Twelve”, which aired on July 7, 2017.

So much has happened since our last update a month ago that it is difficult to summarize everything. Are these events interconnected? The answer definitely appears to be yes.

Since I am still on vacation, we will break this up into two different parts in order to not create any further delays. We will start by “following the money.”



Let’s begin our investigation with a mental exercise.

Even if you have trouble with the idea of a Secret Space Program, or SSP, being real, let’s just imagine for a minute that it actually is true.

What would happen to our society if we were given absolute proof that the testimonies of the late William Tompkins and others such as Corey Goode, as presented in the “Majestic Twelve” episode of Ancient Aliens, were completely authentic?

The [MJ-12] episode also covers Project Horizon and other secret space bases, structures on Mars dubbed “ancient builder race” by astronauts, NASA hacks that say the MJ-12 and the space programs they helped start existed, Roswell and other UFO cases.

What if we discovered that countless trillions of dollars of our money, since as early as the 1950s, have been spent on developing vastly superior technology to anything we see today?

What if the scope, depth and sophistication of this build-out is vastly bigger than most of us could even imagine — and indeed extends throughout our solar system?


Let’s just say that the insiders are right… and these convenient, quick-sounding labels of words like “billion” and “trillion” have been used to obscure how much stuff could really be manufactured with this much money.

What if this money financed antigravity craft, massive bases on Mars, the Moon and other satellites in our solar system and beyond — some of which comfortably house hundreds of thousands of employees?

What if the full release of this technology would instantly propel us into a world of everyday space travel and interaction with countless different races of humanlike ETs?

What if the Cabal that planned and financed all of this was still clinging to power on earth, but was now threatened with complete exposure to the public?

And… what if an Alliance within the military, intelligence and governments themselves is threatening this Cabal with complete exposure if they do not surrender — and agree to tell us the truth?

That’s the world that some of us are living in — right on the front lines. This “shadow World War III” may very well be reaching a stunning conclusion in the near future.


The SSP narrative is so far removed from conventional reality that it seems almost impossible to imagine something like this ever becoming common, public knowledge.

However, anyone who has studied UFO lore has heard that the US government acquired craft with interstellar travel capabilities ever since the Roswell Crash of 1947.

Furthermore, it is considered common knowledge that these craft were “reverse engineered,” leading to working models being built out of them with our own technology.

It is commonly accepted by most open-minded investigators that such exotic aircraft have been tested in bases such as ‘Area 51,’ and are occasionally seen in our skies.

If we could cruise around our solar system within a few years after Roswell, that means our military-industrial complex has had nearly 70 years to establish manned bases out there.

The amount of money that has gone missing is vastly, vastly greater than what it would cost to build a fleet of reverse-engineered, advanced spacecraft.


I was an angst-ridden 12-year-old when the news about the Packard Commission came out in February 1986. It only made me even more convinced that our world was run by an evil Cabal.

This disclosure was extremely embarrassing to the military-industrial complex, as it revealed they were vastly overpaying for simple items like toilet seats — on a massive scale.

This revelation likely came from the same Alliance faction that had just started pushing the Iran-Contra scandal through a few months earlier, as of August 20th, 1985.

As I discuss in The Ascension Mysteries, Iran-Contra was very likely intended to end the Cabal — as it revealed treasonous collaboration with terrorists and cocaine dealers at the Presidential level.

By typing in “military hundred dollar toilet seats” into a search engine, it came up right away:


Take a look at what we hear in the original article from the New York Times:

Disclosures about the Defense Department paying hundreds of dollars for a hammer and hundreds more for a toilet seat have infuriated President Reagan, who has called the reports a ”constant drumbeat of propaganda” and not typical of the way the Government operates.

But that ”propaganda,” the President apparently forgot or did not know, originated with a commission on governmental efficiency for which he has been full of praise, the Grace Commission.

Reagan and his administration — many of the same people who became known as “Neocons” and are implicated in 9/11 — did not at all like these revelations.

Reagan attempted to defend them by calling this “propaganda” and acting as if it made him angry, rather than being interested in understanding why this was happening.


In this next article from the LA Times on July 30, 1986, the reviewer makes a joke early along, only to reveal this is how the US military really worked:

You may have read in the paper the other day that a division of Litton Industries and two of its former executives are accused of defrauding the government out of $6.3 million on military contracts.

According to the U.S. attorney, the company “grossly inflated prices intentionally” on about 45 contracts from 1975 to 1984.

It makes you wonder if all our weapons aren’t overpriced….

A handy book for any taxpayer is “The Pentagon Catalog” (Workman), which describes and shows diagrams of numerous pieces of military hardware that authors Christopher Cerf and Henry Beard describe as “ordinary products at extraordinary prices.”

They claim that their firm, Pentagon Products, can supply any of these items to anyone at the prices our military paid for them, and they boast, “We will not be oversold.”

Anyone who buys this paperback for $4.95 gets a $2,043 nut free.

The nut is glued to the inside of the back cover, in the upper right hand corner, and fits in a hole in the pages, so it goes through to the front.

This nut, which is described as “a plain round nut,” was made by McDonnell Douglas for the Navy at $2,043 each.

But, as the book points out, wouldn’t it be embarrassing if some big piece of equipment failed because of a spare part that cost only a few cents? We certainly don’t want to risk our airplanes by fitting them with cheap nuts.

The book also lists a claw hammer sold by Gould Simulation Systems to the Navy for $435. In the picture it looks like the kind you can buy at any hardware store for $10.

Comparatively reasonable is McDonnell Douglas’ price of only $37 for a screw. It appears in every respect to be an ordinary screw, but the book points out:

“The fact is, a screw this expensive simply cannot get lost! How many times have you had a screw roll off your worktable and disappear, then just casually reached for another one because the missing fastener was too cheap to hunt for?

“Lots of times, right? Well, you can bet your bottom dollar . . . that if one of our screws rolls into some dark corner, you’re going to conduct a full-scale search!”

Other items offered in the catalogue include:

a $285 screwdriver,
a $7,622 coffee maker,
a $387 flat washer,
a $469 wrench,
a $214 flashlight,
a $437 tape measure,
a $2,228 monkey wrench,
a $748 pair of duckbill pliers,
a $74,165 aluminum ladder,
a $659 ashtray and
a $240- million airplane.

Pentagon Products may be a fictional company, but these prices are not. They are documented.


In 2015, we found out that a single helmet for a fighter jet was supposedly worth 400 thousand dollars:

Would you pay $400,000 for a single helmet? Of course you wouldn’t – but that is precisely what the U.S. government is doing.

Just the helmet for the pilot of the new F-35 Lightning II is going to cost taxpayers nearly half a million dollars. And since we are going to need 2,400 of those helmets, the total bill is going to end up approaching a billion dollars. But what is a billion dollars between friends, eh?

Sadly, our military has a very long history of wasting money like this. Back in the 1980s, the “six hundred dollar toilet seat” became quite famous.

Average Americans were absolutely outraged that the government was wasting so much of our hard-earned money, and promises were made that things would change.


Then in 2016, an expose’ from The Nation revealed even more examples in current times.

This journalist was able to track down 33 billion dollars in mysterious over-spending just on his own:

The latest revelations of waste at the Pentagon are just the most recent howlers in a long line of similar stories stretching back at least five decades.

Other hot-off-the-presses examples would include the Army’s purchase of helicopter gears worth $500 each for $8,000 each and the accumulation of billions of dollars’ worth of weapons components that will never be used….

Keep in mind that the above examples are just the tip of the tip of a titanic iceberg of military waste.

In a recent report I did for the Center for International Policy, I identified 27 recent examples of such wasteful spending totaling over $33 billion. And that was no more than a sampling of everyday life in the 21st-century world of the Pentagon….

The first person to bring widespread public attention to the size and scope of the problem of Pentagon waste was Ernest Fitzgerald, an Air Force deputy for management systems.

In the late 1960s, he battled that service to bring to light massive cost overruns on Lockheed’s C-5A transport plane. He risked his job, and was ultimately fired, for uncovering $2 billion in excess expenditures on a plane [in late 1960s dollars]….

The C-5A fiasco, combined with Lockheed’s financial troubles with its L-1011 airliner project, led the company to approach Congress, hat in hand, for a $250 million government bailout….

In a time-tested lobbying technique that has been used by weapons makers ever since, Lockheed claimed that denying it loan guarantees would cost 34,000 jobs in 35 states, while undermining the Pentagon’s ability to prepare for the next war, whatever it might be.

The tactic worked like a charm….

By rewarding Lockheed Martin for its wasteful practices, Congress set a precedent that has never been superseded.

A present-day case in point is—speak of the devil—Lockheed Martin’s F-35 combat aircraft.

At $1.4 trillion in procurement and operating costs over its lifetime, it will be the most expensive weapons program ever undertaken by the Pentagon (or anyone else on planet Earth), and the warning signs are already in:

[There are] tens of billions of dollars in projected cost overruns and myriad performance problems before the F-35 is even out of its testing phase.


What if we learned that the US government created vast Ponzi schemes as fundraisers, where the actual costs of wars and the space race were much less than what was reported to the public?

[This is precisely what multiple insiders, who have proven their high-level credentials, have told us over the years. The Packard Commission was just a taste.]

What if these mega-fundraisers included the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Apollo moon missions, the trillion-dollar fighter jets, the nuclear arms race and now the War on Terror?

Take a look at some figures anyone can obtain via internet search:


If you add up just the above, in conventional dollars, you have 341B + 770B + 110B + 5.48T + 2.1T, for a total of 8,801 billion, or 8.8 trillion dollars.

Then throw in the absolutely ridiculous figure of 1.4 trillion for the F-35, and you are now up to 10.2 trillion dollars.

Multiple insiders have risked their lives to reveal that these methods are used as a way of funneling vast amounts of money into secret projects.

Some of this money was obviously spent legitimately on these programs — but we are told that a significant majority of it was redirected elsewhere.

On a far more mundane level, when I was given a bribery and threat attempt on July 3rd, 2017, just four days before the MJ-12 episode aired, I was told I could sell something and be vastly overpaid for it.

I was told “This is how we do it. This is how we get money where it needs to go without it being anything easy to trace.”


Some of the articles we linked to above have some interesting facts worth exploring at this point.

Let’s take a look at our first example, from the hyper-expensive nuclear weapons program:

Nuclear weapons have cost the United States at least $5.48 trillion since 1940.

For most of that time neither Congress, the armed services nor the President had a clear idea what was being spent, according to a four-year study sponsored by the Brookings Institution….

The money spent on nuclear weapons, plus money for environmental cleanup, would buy 290 million automobiles, says an author of the study.

[The author’s name is] William J. Weida, a professor of economics at Colorado College in Colorado Springs and a former director of the Economic Policy and Analysis division of the Defense Department.


Just so we are clear, the current US population is about 324 million.

The money we have spent on nukes could buy a new car for almost every man, woman and child in America.

You could build an entire civilization for that kind of money.

How many nukes does the US now have to show for this astonishing 5.48 trillion-dollar expenditure? A mere 6,800 — and better yet, only 1800 of them are deployed:

As of July 8, the United States has 6,800 warheads, according to data from Hans Kristensen and Robert Norris at the Federation of American scientists.

2,800 of them are retired, 4,000 are stockpiled, and 1,800 are deployed. The total number of U.S. warheads is second only to Russia, which currently has 7,000 of them.

That would mean that each missile would theoretically cost as much in pure economic value as the manufacture of 42 thousand, 647 different automobiles.

That would add up to a price of over 805 million dollars per missile — a staggering number that approaches a billion dollars.

This is obviously approximate, but it at least puts us in the ballpark.


Granted, you also need a delivery system in order to make a missile, as this New York Times article suggests:


The cost includes money spent to invent them and produce them, build the missiles, bombers and submarines to deliver them and to defend against enemy nuclear attacks.

In total, we have:

The amount of raw materials and labor involved in the invention of the technology;
the mining of fissile fuel, with appropriate equipment and safety precautions;
the refining and machining of the materials to make the missile;
the costs of manufacturing a portion of the plane or sub that would deliver one missile, and:
the labor involved in the construction of one missile.

This combined cost for one missile should certainly be less than what it takes to develop over 42 THOUSAND different automobiles.

Once you consider that these glorified rockets could be a lot cheaper than we are being told, everything starts to make a lot more sense.


As this next quote reveals, Mercury cost 265 million per flight. Gemini cost 723 million per flight.

Yet, somehow, the price tag for each Apollo flight added up to 9,900 million bucks — or 9.9 billion dollars each.

How is it that we could successfully launch over 37 Mercury flights for the same money it cost to do one Apollo flight?

Mercury put astronauts into orbit around the earth for the first time. Gemini again put them in earth orbit, but included longer trips and spacewalks.

Is it really 37 times more expensive to send astronauts to the moon than it is to launch them into earth’s orbit and safely return them?

Here are the details if you want to read it for yourself:

Project Mercury spanned five years (1959–1963) and cost $277 million in 1965 dollars, which translate into $1.6 billion in 2010 dollars.

Since six Mercury piloted missions were flown, that amounted to $265 million per flight in today’s money.

As for Gemini, the program costs $1.3 billion in 1967 dollars during its six-year lifespan (1962–1967).

In today’s money, it would amount to $7.3 billion, or $723 millions for each of its 10 piloted missions. We thus could say that a Gemini mission cost twice as much as a Mercury’s.

As reported above, the Apollo program costs $20.4 billion if we simply added yearly spending of its 15 year-lifespan (1959–1973), or $109 billion in today’s money.

Since 11 Apollo piloted missions were flown, that amounts to $9.9 billion per flight.

That’s way over Mercury and Gemini mission costs, reflecting the complexity of going to the Moon.

And if we consider these $109 billion resulted in six lunar landings, each of these missions costs some $18 billion!


This writer naturally assumes the outrageously higher cost was simply due to “the complexity of going to the Moon” — but multiple insiders have risked their lives to say there is much more to it than that.

Let’s also not forget that each Mercury mission required a rocket to be launched. Just like a nuclear missile, which is also a rocket.

Nonetheless, a Mercury rocket only cost 265 million per flight, whereas a nuclear rocket supposedly costs over 805 million per unit — as we said above.

Once you get the basic design perfected, and know where to mine the fissile materials, should it really cost so much more to produce a nuke?


Numbers like “million,” “billion” and “trillion” get thrown around all the time, but do we really understand exactly how much we can build with this kind of money?

Most people have no idea. None whatsoever. This is the result of generations of mass-media brainwashing.

The numbers give us convenient labels to file everything away under a short sub-heading in our minds.

How many people could really even imagine the difference between having and spending 10 million, 100 million, 1000 million or 1,000,000 million?

Yet, this all-too-easily ignored figure of a trillion dollars is literally, again, one million, million dollars.


Let’s say you were lucky enough to get handed a trillion dollars. The only catch was that you actually had to spend it.

If you tried to spend one million, million dollars, you would probably run out of ideas pretty quickly after the first few million — perhaps 100M at the most.

“Nonsense, David, I’d start making hundred million-dollar movies!” Okay, great idea. Go “all in” at 100M per movie. Make it big.

In order to spend a trillion dollars you would need to personally produce ten thousand of these Hollywood blockbusters.

If you could read and approve a 120-page script a day, every day of your life, it would take you 27.39 years to get through ten thousand of them.

Each of these films requires tens of thousands of highly skilled employees to work full time for several months at least.

Right now we are lucky to see ten movies of that caliber and price point per year, maybe 20 if you are very generous.

The amount of time and effort it would take to train enough people to even make, say, 50 films of this size and cost per year is astronomical.

It would take you 500 years at our current production speed to spend a trillion dollars by making 20 major blockbusters at 100M each per year.


Now we are starting to get a better sense of exactly how big a trillion dollars is. If Hollywood made 20 films at 100M each per year, it would take them 500 years to burn through a trillion dollars.

Each film requires the labor of armies of tens of thousands of people, extensive materials costs to build sets and props, and tons of computer power and time.

Our back-of-the-envelope calculation for the on-the-books costs of Korea, Vietnam, Apollo, the nuclear arms race, the F-35 and the War on Terror was 10.2 trillion dollars.

This doesn’t even begin to cover the money that is just flat-out missing.

What if US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced that 2.3 trillion dollars was “missing” from the US defense budget on the day before 9/11?

What if the total amount of “missing” money, in addition to the 10.2 trillion already mentioned and other fundraising methods, is now 6.5 trillion dollars as of August 2016?

A relatively obscure audit report from the Office of Inspector General of the United States Department of Defense suddenly is getting a lot of attention for what it apparently reveals: The Pentagon can’t account for $6.5 trillion.

At ArmstrongEconomics, the blog reported, “Once again, the office of inspector general has come up with a huge hole in the Department of Defense with a missing $6.5 trillion.”

The day before 9/11, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld admitted $2.3 trillion was missing from the Defense Department budget, noted the blog.

That figure has now grown to $6.5 trillion and counting.


Now we’ve looked at 10.2 trillion spent on a handful of wars, a fighter jet and a space program with six moonwalks, and another 6.5 trillion that is “missing.”

The US military budget has been approaching a trillion dollars a year in total spending for the last decade, as you can see here — even though we went through a crippling financial crisis in 2008.

The numbers in this diagram are in billions:


For all the fear-mongering we hear in the media about China and Russia, the article that features this budget breakdown also shows how absurdly high this figure really is:

U.S. military spending is its largest expenditure after Social Security benefits. It’s greater than those of the next 10 largest government expenditures combined.

It’s four times more than China’s military budget of $216 billion. It’s almost 10 times bigger than Russia’s budget of just $84.5 billion.

It’s difficult to reduce the budget deficit, and the almost $20 trillion debt, without cutting defense spending.

We are being told by the media that Russia is this terrifying adversary, as if the Cold War is back on again. Yet the US has ten times more military cash than they do.

China is supposed to be an even bigger and scarier villain. The US has 400 percent more military spending than they do.

What the heck is going on here?


The entire world is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. All the money is gone. The US alone is nearly 20 trillion dollars in debt, as you just read.

The Cabal’s own “Too Big to Fail” mega-corporate banks didn’t have anything left in 2008, and needed a 29 trillion-dollar bailout, as we revealed in Financial Tyranny.

Yet, in practical terms, this makes no sense. All that money had to go somewhere. 29 trillion is nearly half of the entire wealth of the planet in a given year, as measured in world GDP.

If you play “follow the money,” the obvious answer to the problem is that they had to spend it on something.


If we assume that wealthy elites stole this money and spent it, what could they have bought with it?

You may have imagined them dining on caviar and fine steak, washing it down with a 400-dollar bottle of Dom Perignon champagne on their private jets.

They might have fleets of Bentleys waiting in the garages of a few different mega-mansions around the world, and towering yachts in the harbor.

The costs of these luxuries are much less than the ten trillion in assets held by the top 92,000 people, who represent the .001%.

If each one of them had exactly the same amount of money, which is highly unlikely, it would amount to 108 million, 698 thousand dollars and change.

A private jet ‘only’ costs a maximum of 4 million a year.

Sprawling mansions owned by the top celebrities typically weigh in at 10 to 20 million. The most expensive cars still only cost 1/10th of a million, except for certain very rare examples.


Yachts are where things can get ridiculous.

There aren’t enough super-yachts for all 92,000 of the 0.001 percent to have one, but if there were, they could spend all they have trying to get one and go broke, since they are 275M each.

Forbes was only able to identify 125 super-yacht owners enough to know their nationalities, though they also say 355 of them were sold in 2013, totaling 3.5 billion.

How many super-yachts at 275 million could you buy with ten trillion dollars? That’s 36 thousand, 363 — vastly greater than the number known to exist.


The top 92,000 individuals alone possess 10 trillion. However, the total number socked away by the super-rich is as much as a staggering 32 trillion dollars:

In July of 2012, James Henry, a former chief economist at McKinsey, a major global consultancy, published a major report on tax havens for the Tax Justice Network.

[He] compiled data from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the IMF and other private sector entities to reveal that the world’s super-rich have hidden between $21 and $32 trillion offshore to avoid taxation….

With roughly half of the world’s offshore wealth, or some $10 trillion, belonging to 92,000 of the planet’s richest individuals — representing not the top 1% but the top 0.001% — we see a far more extreme global disparity taking shape than the one invoked by the Occupy movement.


Now let’s take a look at the combined wealth of entire nations as it stands today in 2017, based on GDP, or Gross Domestic Product.

What you are seeing here is that the total value of the US is 19.4 trillion, China is 11.7 trillion, Japan is 4.8 trillion, and so on:

Everyone is talking about how wealthy China is. They are buying up everything in sight, going through a massive construction boom, you name it.

Yet, as you can see here, their combined GDP for 2017 is $11.79 trillion.

This is just a bit higher than what the top 92,000 people have stuffed under the couch.

How much could you actually do with 11.79 trillion? Let’s take a quick look at China and find out.


Just some of China’s 11.79 trillion per year has been allocated to the construction of utterly vast, creepy “Ghost Cities” that no one is even living in.

Here is one article about this from the February 2016 issue of Wired Magazine, complete with stunning photographic documentation:

The Kangbashi district of Ordos, China is a marvel of urban planning, 137-square miles of shining towers, futuristic architecture and pristine parks carved out of the grassland of Inner Mongolia.

It is a thoroughly modern city, but for one thing: No one lives there.

Well, almost nobody. Kangbashi is one of hundreds of sparkling new cities sitting relatively empty throughout China.

[They have been] built by a government eager to urbanize the country but shunned by people unable to afford it or hesitant to leave the rural communities they know.

Chicago photographer Kai Caemmerer visited Kangbashi and two other cities for his ongoing series Unborn Cities.

The photos capture the eerie sensation of standing on a silent street surrounded by empty skyscrapers and public spaces devoid of life.


In April 2017, China announced the construction of yet another city, which would soon expand to literally being three times the size of New York:

Plans for the Xiongan New Area, a special economic zone that authorities say will eventually cover an area nearly three times that of New York, were announced by the Communist party’s top leaders on Saturday with a flurry of government propaganda….

Official news agency Xinhua said Xiongan’s creation would reduce pressure on China’s car-clogged, 22 million-resident capital, and “usher in a new chapter in the country’s historic transitioning to coordinated, inclusive and sustainable growth”….

China has created dozens of “new areas” in recent years as part of a massive urbanisation drive that has seen hundreds of millions of people pour into its cities.

Critics say many have become ghost towns but in a recent interview Wade Shepard, the author of a book on the phenomenon, said some were now beginning to take off.


Even though China already has a total of 650 established cities, they intend to use part of this 11.79 trillion per year to build an additional 285 of them.

This, of course, means that one of the most highly populated countries in the world is literally about to double the size of their cities with the money they already have.

11.79 trillion per year is more than enough to do this:

Two hundred and eighty-five. That’s the number of new purpose-built eco-cities that China claims to be developing.

This is not a joke or an ironic jest… This is a very real development that is taking place in a China that is attempting to rapidly transition and stabilize on many fronts…

In a country that has roughly 650 established cities, the impact of this eco-city building bonanza could be drastic — even if only a modest portion of them are ever actually completed and populated….

This is a country that has urbanized faster and more extensively than any other country in history — by far.

Since 1949, when the Communist Party first came to power, China created (or designated) over 600 new cities.

In the past three decades alone, the country has urbanized more people than the entire population of the United States.

By 2030, [China] expects to have over a billion urban dwellers — which means an Estonia-size population chunk is going to have to urbanize each month (yes, month).

Remember — all of these expenses are in excess of China’s yearly military budget of 216 billion, which is only 0.2 trillion dollars.


Now maybe you have a better idea of what it means when 92,000 people have socked away ten trillion dollars.

Forget about 92,000 private jets, five mansions per person, five Bentleys per person, and so on.

Look at what China is doing with a similar amount of money in any given year.

We are literally talking about enough money for the .001 percent to build entire countries — entire civilizations — if they had the land and raw materials to do so.

And that may well be the point.

The hidden cities we are looking for do indeed exist, according to brave insiders — one of whom just died at a very suspicious time.

The cities are either underground or off-planet. It is as simple as that.

Yet, for some reason, the idea that we have been lied to about something this massive in size seems to defy people’s emotional threshold completely.


Adolf Hitler spoke about the value of telling a “big lie” in Mein Kampf, and this idea should be kept at the forefront of our awareness as we survey this concept.

This quote comes from the Jewish Virtual Library website, where it is presented for our consideration. I have bolded certain passages for emphasis:

In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily.

And thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.

Even though the facts which prove this [colossal lie] to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.

For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. — Adolf Hitler


You’ve just read a quote from Hitler’s manifesto that precisely explains what is going on right now. It has often been shortened and paraphrased.

Simply put, if the Powers that Were tell a big enough lie, most people simply could not believe that it could be true.

The people have, as he put it, “primitive simplicity in their minds” where they could never handle telling such a “colossal untruth” within their own personal lives.

For this same reason, they couldn’t imagine anyone else telling a lie of such colossal magnitude either.

Even when the “broad masses of a nation” see irrefutable evidence that this “big lie” is real, “they will still doubt and waver… and think that there may be some other explanation.”

Cue the invariable cry of the skeptic:

“That would never happen to ME! I am Highly Intelligent! There Is No Scientific Evidence! You Have a Huge Ego and Are Writing This Only to Make Money!”

Yep. So why don’t you stop reading and go do something else? Don’t waste one precious minute of your resources on something you know is not true.


In conclusion, we have shown ample evidence of awesome military over-spending, documented for generations now.

China has just over half the yearly GDP of the US, and yet they are on a building spree unlike anything the world has ever seen.

My point is simple: All the tools are there to see that the military-industrial complex, or MIC, could be experiencing an even bigger construction binge.

Opulent cities large enough to house millions of people can be built, and have been built, with that level of cash. We just haven’t been allowed to see them. Yet.

On the face of it, you might think the idea of a Secret Space Program is ridiculous.

However, there is no denying that powerful people are trying to assassinate Corey Goode and me both — as well as others in our field.


Just after I wrote the last article, William Tompkins died — and he was our valuable eyewitness to the US’s discovery of the Nazi SSP in WWII.

He revealed that the Nazis had cut a deal with sinister reptilian ETs many insiders call the Draco.

They were also called “Saurian Men,” and were described with the code name “S-M” by insiders who wrote notes on Carlos Allende’s copy of Morris K. Jessup’s “The Case for the UFO.”

Read this article on Mysterious Universe to get a good overview of this very strange ‘leak’ from the MIC that emerged back in 1957, as notes added to Jessup’s book.

Tompkins also was instrumental in designing prototypes for massive “space submarines” that became part of the Solar Warden program Corey was involved in.

Even stranger was that Bill died just hours before the total solar eclipse — which is in keeping with the Cabal’s method of doing ceremonial assassinations.

Graham Hancock nearly died the week before, as we will discuss. This happened within days of when the brakes went out on my car.

Graham is the world’s leading expert on ancient civilizations, and has already linked the Giza monuments to what we see on Mars in The Mars Mystery.


Pete Peterson recently validated much of Goode and Tompkins on Cosmic Disclosure. This is a show I host on Gaia, the “Netflix of Seeking Truth.”

The corroboration of their testimonies is absolutely stunning. This goes far, far beyond the possibility of anyone creating such an interconnected set of lies.

You can go here and see all 8000-plus titles on Gaia, pay only 99 cents for the first month, and cancel without penalty if you don’t like it.

When we last checked in, Pete was under threat of having everything stolen. Day after day we have watched this continue. Nothing has been able to stop it.

Pete has now had his house emptied to the bare walls by agents of the bank. The current sheriff has nothing to do with this operation and is innocent.

My insider friend ‘Paul,’ who personally autopsied about 2000 different types of ET corpses, and had been working closely with me, also lost everything he owned.

This event occurred only three days after I leaked his new testimony about the “Zombie Program,” using advanced cloning technology, on August 14th.

More on this in Part Two. They even left a bullet on the countertop in an otherwise emptied-out house to send him a message.

They drilled holes all over the place in his walls to find possible secrets hidden in there — and did in fact get a box containing priceless computer files.


The point is, someone absolutely does not want us doing what we are doing.

I recommend reading all three of the previous updates to really understand the scope and depth of this story, if you haven’t already done so:

UPDATE ONE: Why David Needed a Time-Out

UPDATE TWO: David’s Brakes Sabotaged

UPDATE THREE: Dark Alliance Mega-Attack Repelled… For Now

Graham Hancock’s brush with death happened at exactly the same time that Pete’s house started to be emptied out — just days after the brakes went out on my car.

Tompkins died almost immediately after I wrote Update Three — just hours before a total solar eclipse over America.

Jim Marrs, the world’s leading JFK expert, had died not that long before all these events started.

Corey Goode has just navigated another very serious threat while he was in Spain, which we may or may not even be authorized to discuss in any detail.


You stepped up marvelously to help Pete rebuild from this devastating loss, for which I greatly appreciate your help.

So far we have raised over 53 thousand dollars to help him rebuild. This was a stunning demonstration of public support:

Pete will be making a public statement thanking you for your amazing generosity in the near future. I will probably bring him on the radio.

He is using the money to finance the construction of a new lab, so his valuable technical work can continue forward.

The bank has now stolen and destroyed over 2 million dollars worth of belongings for a house that was only worth about 300K.

They have completely broken the law by failing to move the items to a storage facility that we could then reimburse them for, and recover the valuables.

The items have been thrown in the dump, driven over by bulldozers, and then covered with wet garbage, followed by dry garbage, so they can never be found.

We are trying to file motions to have this elevated to a criminal charge and I will keep you posted.


Given the active threat I and others now face, I don’t expect to wait that long to write Part Two. Stay tuned.

Despite the level of threat going on, I am very excited about the possibility that this could mean disclosure is imminent — and will be much bigger than we thought.


I just came back here to make a final round of editorial tweaks. I uploaded them, refreshed the page, and bam — 6066 views.

The “666” obviously is the number from the Book of Revelation regarding the Antichrist.

What we are seeing in this investigation matches the Bible prophecies very nicely.

As I have said many times, this happens without any conscious effort.

It continues to be an indication that positive forces out there have our backs.

There is much more to share in Part Two.

The Cabal is obviously very vulnerable right now if they are conducting so many obvious acts of desperation.

Things have gotten really serious with the acceleration of earth changes. This is a call for each one of us to step up and defend ourselves and our planet.


I posted this update, re-read the whole article from the beginning, got to the end and hit Refresh. Boom — there it was again! 7770.

I’ve always seen 777 as a nice counter-balance to 666 in numerology so this was particularly significant to me. No effort required — it just works.

Let’s just say that if all the dreams and briefings are real, we could soon be in for the most astonishing “mass awakening” in recorded history.
