“You see them on the street. You watch them on TV. You might even vote for one this fall. You think they’re people just like you. You’re wrong. Dead wrong.”

- They Live

We’re living in two worlds, you and I.

There’s the world we see (or are made to see) and then there’s the one we sense (and occasionally catch a glimpse of), the latter of which is a far cry from the propaganda-driven reality manufactured by the government and its corporate sponsors, including the media.

Indeed, what most Americans perceive as life in America—privileged, progressive and free—is a far cry from reality, where economic inequality is growing, real agendas and real power are buried beneath layers of Orwellian doublespeak and corporate obfuscation, and “freedom,” such that it is, is meted out in small, legalistic doses by militarized police armed to the teeth.

All is not as it seems.

This is the premise of John Carpenter’s film They Live, which was released more than 30 years ago, and remains unnervingly, chillingly appropriate for our modern age.

Best known for his horror film Halloween, which assumes that there is a form of evil so dark that it can’t be killed, Carpenter’s larger body of work is infused with a strong anti-authoritarian, anti-establishment, laconic bent that speaks to the filmmaker’s concerns about the unraveling of our society, particularly our government.

Time and again, Carpenter portrays the government working against its own citizens, a populace out of touch with reality, technology run amok, and a future more horrific than any horror film.

In Escape from New York, Carpenter presents fascism as the future of America.

In The Thing, a remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic of the same name, Carpenter presupposes that increasingly we are all becoming dehumanized.

In Christine, the film adaptation of Stephen King’s novel about a demon-possessed car, technology exhibits a will and consciousness of its own and goes on a murderous rampage.

In In the Mouth of Madness, Carpenter notes that evil grows when people lose “the ability to know the difference between reality and fantasy.”

And then there is Carpenter’s They Live, in which two migrant workers discover that the world is not as it seems. In fact, the population is actually being controlled and exploited by aliens working in partnership with an oligarchic elite. All the while, the populace—blissfully unaware of the real agenda at work in their lives—has been lulled into complacency, indoctrinated into compliance, bombarded with media distractions, and hypnotized by subliminal messages beamed out of television and various electronic devices, billboards and the like.

It is only when homeless drifter John Nada (played to the hilt by the late Roddy Piper) discovers a pair of doctored sunglasses—Hoffman lenses—that Nada sees what lies beneath the elite’s fabricated reality: control and bondage.

When viewed through the lens of truth, the elite, who appear human until stripped of their disguises, are shown to be monsters who have enslaved the citizenry in order to prey on them.

Likewise, billboards blare out hidden, authoritative messages: a bikini-clad woman in one ad is actually ordering viewers to “MARRY AND REPRODUCE.” Magazine racks scream “CONSUME” and “OBEY.” A wad of dollar bills in a vendor’s hand proclaims, “THIS IS YOUR GOD.”

When viewed through Nada’s Hoffman lenses, some of the other hidden messages being drummed into the people’s subconscious include: NO INDEPENDENT THOUGHT, CONFORM, SUBMIT, STAY ASLEEP, BUY, WATCH TV, NO IMAGINATION, and DO NOT QUESTION AUTHORITY.

This indoctrination campaign engineered by the elite in They Live is painfully familiar to anyone who has studied the decline of American culture.

A citizenry that does not think for themselves, obeys without question, is submissive, does not challenge authority, does not think outside the box, and is content to sit back and be entertained is a citizenry that can be easily controlled.

In this way, the subtle message of They Live provides an apt analogy of our own distorted vision of life in the American police state, what philosopher Slavoj Žižek refers to as dictatorship in democracy, “the invisible order which sustains your apparent freedom.”

We’re being fed a series of carefully contrived fictions that bear no resemblance to reality.

The powers-that-be want us to feel threatened by forces beyond our control (terrorists, shooters, bombers).

They want us afraid and dependent on the government and its militarized armies for our safety and well-being.

They want us distrustful of each other, divided by our prejudices, and at each other’s throats.

Most of all, they want us to continue to march in lockstep with their dictates.

Tune out the government’s attempts to distract, divert and befuddle us and tune into what’s really going on in this country, and you’ll run headlong into an unmistakable, unpalatable truth: the moneyed elite who rule us view us as expendable resources to be used, abused and discarded.

In fact, a study conducted by Princeton and Northwestern University concluded that the U.S. government does not represent the majority of American citizens. Instead, the study found that the government is ruled by the rich and powerful, or the so-called “economic elite.” Moreover, the researchers concluded that policies enacted by this governmental elite nearly always favor special interests and lobbying groups.

In other words, we are being ruled by an oligarchy disguised as a democracy, and arguably on our way towards fascism—a form of government where private corporate interests rule, money calls the shots, and the people are seen as mere subjects to be controlled.

Not only do you have to be rich—or beholden to the rich—to get elected these days, but getting elected is also a surefire way to get rich. As CBS News reports, “Once in office, members of Congress enjoy access to connections and information they can use to increase their wealth, in ways that are unparalleled in the private sector. And once politicians leave office, their connections allow them to profit even further.”

In denouncing this blatant corruption of America’s political system, former president Jimmy Carter blasted the process of getting elected—to the White House, governor’s mansion, Congress or state legislatures—as “unlimited political bribery… a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over.”

Rest assured that when and if fascism finally takes hold in America, the basic forms of government will remain: Fascism will appear to be friendly. The legislators will be in session. There will be elections, and the news media will continue to cover the entertainment and political trivia. Consent of the governed, however, will no longer apply. Actual control will have finally passed to the oligarchic elite controlling the government behind the scenes.

Sound familiar?

Clearly, we are now ruled by an oligarchic elite of governmental and corporate interests.

We have moved into “corporatism” (favored by Benito Mussolini), which is a halfway point on the road to full-blown fascism.

Corporatism is where the few moneyed interests—not elected by the citizenry—rule over the many. In this way, it is not a democracy or a republican form of government, which is what the American government was established to be. It is a top-down form of government and one which has a terrifying history typified by the developments that occurred in totalitarian regimes of the past: police states where everyone is watched and spied on, rounded up for minor infractions by government agents, placed under police control, and placed in detention (a.k.a. concentration) camps.

For the final hammer of fascism to fall, it will require the most crucial ingredient: the majority of the people will have to agree that it’s not only expedient but necessary.

But why would a people agree to such an oppressive regime?

The answer is the same in every age: fear.

Fear makes people stupid.

Fear is the method most often used by politicians to increase the power of government. And, as most social commentators recognize, an atmosphere of fear permeates modern America: fear of terrorism, fear of the police, fear of our neighbors and so on.

The propaganda of fear has been used quite effectively by those who want to gain control, and it is working on the American populace.

Despite the fact that we are 17,600 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack; 11,000 times more likely to die from an airplane accident than from a terrorist plot involving an airplane; 1,048 times more likely to die from a car accident than a terrorist attack, and 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist , we have handed over control of our lives to government officials who treat us as a means to an end—the source of money and power.

As the Bearded Man in They Live warns, “They are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more people are becoming poor. We are their cattle. We are being bred for slavery.”

In this regard, we’re not so different from the oppressed citizens in They Live.

From the moment we are born until we die, we are indoctrinated into believing that those who rule us do it for our own good. The truth is far different.

Despite the truth staring us in the face, we have allowed ourselves to become fearful, controlled, pacified zombies.

We live in a perpetual state of denial, insulated from the painful reality of the American police state by wall-to-wall entertainment news and screen devices.

Most everyone keeps their heads down these days while staring zombie-like into an electronic screen, even when they’re crossing the street. Families sit in restaurants with their heads down, separated by their screen devices and unaware of what’s going on around them. Young people especially seem dominated by the devices they hold in their hands, oblivious to the fact that they can simply push a button, turn the thing off and walk away.

Indeed, there is no larger group activity than that connected with those who watch screens—that is, television, lap tops, personal computers, cell phones and so on. In fact, a Nielsen study reports that American screen viewing is at an all-time high. For example, the average American watches approximately 151 hours of television per month.

The question, of course, is what effect does such screen consumption have on one’s mind?

Psychologically it is similar to drug addiction. Researchers found that “almost immediately after turning on the TV, subjects reported feeling more relaxed, and because this occurs so quickly and the tension returns so rapidly after the TV is turned off, people are conditioned to associate TV viewing with a lack of tension.” Research also shows that regardless of the programming, viewers’ brain waves slow down, thus transforming them into a more passive, nonresistant state.

Historically, television has been used by those in authority to quiet discontent and pacify disruptive people. “Faced with severe overcrowding and limited budgets for rehabilitation and counseling, more and more prison officials are using TV to keep inmates quiet,” according to Newsweek.

Given that the majority of what Americans watch on television is provided through channels controlled by six mega corporations, what we watch is now controlled by a corporate elite and, if that elite needs to foster a particular viewpoint or pacify its viewers, it can do so on a large scale.

If we’re watching, we’re not doing.

The powers-that-be understand this. As television journalist Edward R. Murrow warned in a 1958 speech:

We are currently wealthy, fat, comfortable and complacent. We have currently a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information. Our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse, and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it, and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late.

This brings me back to They Live, in which the real zombies are not the aliens calling the shots but the populace who are content to remain controlled.

When all is said and done, the world of They Live is not so different from our own. As one of the characters points out, “The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are nonexistent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance. They have made us indifferent to ourselves, to others. We are focused only on our own gain.”

We, too, are focused only on our own pleasures, prejudices and gains. Our poor and underclasses are also growing. Racial injustice is growing. Human rights is nearly nonexistent. We too have been lulled into a trance, indifferent to others.

Oblivious to what lies ahead, we’ve been manipulated into believing that if we continue to consume, obey, and have faith, things will work out. But that’s never been true of emerging regimes. And by the time we feel the hammer coming down upon us, it will be too late.

So where does that leave us?

The characters who populate Carpenter’s films provide some insight.

Underneath their machismo, they still believe in the ideals of liberty and equal opportunity. Their beliefs place them in constant opposition with the law and the establishment, but they are nonetheless freedom fighters.

When, for example, John Nada destroys the alien hyno-transmitter in They Live, he restores hope by delivering America a wake-up call for freedom.

That’s the key right there: we need to wake up.

Stop allowing yourselves to be easily distracted by pointless political spectacles and pay attention to what’s really going on in the country.

The real battle for control of this nation is not being waged between Republicans and Democrats in the ballot box.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the real battle for control of this nation is taking place on roadsides, in police cars, on witness stands, over phone lines, in government offices, in corporate offices, in public school hallways and classrooms, in parks and city council meetings, and in towns and cities across this country.

The real battle between freedom and tyranny is taking place right in front of our eyes, if we would only open them.

All the trappings of the American police state are now in plain sight.

Wake up, America.

If they live (the tyrants, the oppressors, the invaders, the overlords), it is only because “we the people” sleep.

The Nuclear Option: Meteorologists, the Professional Fake Forecasters

The Nuclear Option: Meteorologists, the Professional Fake Forecasters

CHARLES HURT7 Sep 2019

President Trump defeated establishment Republicans and destroyed the Democrats. He has slain swamp kings along the banks of the Potomac. He stood up to Chinese President Xi Jinping, stiffed the mullahs of Iran and walked away from North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. And he utterly humiliated the Great Political Pundits of 2016.

Now come the meteorologists.

Sheathed in their nerdy white lab coats and pocket protectors, armed with their little TV weather screen clickers, they are ready for battle against the Great Orange Force of Nature.

“Trump clings to idea Alabama faced big threat from Dorian,” blares The Associated Press headline about the first major hurricane of the Atlantic season.

The meteorologists declared it a Category 5 on Sept. 1. It was a Category 5 — until it wasn’t.

Meteorologists are in the business of getting predictions wrong. Why else does anyone watch the weather news — except for the hilarity of watching them get it wrong day after day after day? They predict sunshine, grab your umbrella.

Meteorologists are so deeply wedded to fake weather predictions that they make the Great Political Pundits of 2016 look like an army of Nostradamuses.

Just when you think it can’t get any more ridiculous, the world of fake news collides with the world of fake weather forecasts. Who could have seen that coming? Certainly not the meteorologists or political pundits.

Mr. Trump’s great crime here was, as usual, a tweet.

“In addition to Florida — South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, will most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated. Looking like one of the largest hurricanes ever. Already category 5. BE CAREFUL! GOD BLESS EVERYONE!”

Every shred of information included in the president’s tweet came directly from — that’s right — meteorologists. The very same meteorologists who then turned viciously against Mr. Trump as soon as their own predictions, as usual, turned into total fantasy.

One fake forecaster complained about Mr. Trump’s tweet in an email to the AP. “Alabama was never in the five-day cone except for a tiny sliver of the southeast corner of the state at one point.”

Seriously? This is the idiot’s complaint?

In other words, Alabama was never in the five-day cone except when it was. And how is it that somehow the “tiny sliver of the southeast corner” of Alabama is suddenly no longer “Alabama”?

No wonder these people dedicate so much of their lives to giving the American people fake weather forecasts.

Another weather faker complained that since Mr. Trump has such a massive Twitter following — far larger than even the largest fake weather “forecaster” — he needs to stick with only the latest fake forecasts.

“If he’s going to be a provider of up-to-date information, he needs to be up to date,” the fake forecaster sniveled.

In other words, leave the fake forecasting to the professional fake forecasters and only pass along the very latest fake forecast that all the professional fake forecasters currently agree upon.

Thank God for Donald J. Trump.

Tetanus vaccines exposed for sterilizing 500,000 women and children

Malaria-vaccine-607x403

Tetanus vaccines exposed for sterilizing 500,000 women and children – watch at REAL.video (we believe that the video has disappeared rather than censored).

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 by Ethan Huff
https://www.depopulation.news/2018-09-25-tetanus-vaccines-exposed-sterilizing-women-children.html

A major pharmaceutical company has been outed for lacing tetanus vaccines with chemicals verified to have sterilized hundreds of thousands of innocent women and children throughout Africa.

In a new video published to REAL.video, Joe Joseph from The Daily Sheeple explains how Kenyan President Railia Odinga put forth test results to show that Agriq-Quest Ltd., a Nairobi-based pharmaceutical company, indeed allowed poisons to enter the shots and cause harm as part of a government-run public health program.

Agriq-Quest has since had its license suspended by Kenya’s Accreditation Service. But opposition leaders and various members of the public are demanding answers as they continue to tally up the number of casualties harmed by the vaccine between 2014 and 2015.

“Odinga said girls and women aged between 14 and 49 from the fastest growing populations in the country will not have children, because of a state-sponsored sterilization exercise that was sold to the country as a tetanus vaccination,” a report by Agence de Presse Africaine explains.

Catholic Church first brought up concerns about tetanus vaccines causing sterilization

According to reports, it was actually the Catholic Church – and more specifically, a group of Catholic doctors – that first brought the issue to light. They claimed at the time that Agriq-Quest’s tetanus shots contained a hormone that was dangerous to young women, and that could potentially cause sterilization.

It now appears that the use of the word “potentially” wasn’t even necessary, as the tetanus shots did, in fact, contain deadly sterilization chemicals known to be harmful to women.

“The Church’s position was informed by what had happened in Mexico, Nicaragua and Philippines, where the various governments together with WHO/UNICEF had conducted similar campaigns using tetanus toxoid impregnated with beta human chorionic gonadotropin (BhCG) that causes permanent infertility among girls and women,” President Odinga explained, according to sources.
If you vaccinate your children, you’re putting them at risk of sterilization and other health problems

As pointed out by Joseph, many Americans are likely to write off this news as, “well, that’s happening over there and doesn’t really concern us.” But if you’re one of those who believes this, you’re dead wrong.

Truth be told, vaccines produced and sold for distribution in the United States come with similar risks, including the risk of serious brain damage leading to altered perceptions about truth and reality.

“Anybody that goes out and gets a flu shot, and anybody that goes out and just gets vaccinated without doing the research first” is just plain uninformed, says Joseph, noting that, at the very least, people should be concerned about how vaccines are harming black lives in Africa.

“How about you, the black African American caucus in Congress, are you concerned about this?” Joseph asks further.

“The Catholic church has dimed out the vaccine companies here … it is a World Health Organization UNICEF program. These companies have to go through a process in order to be approved to manufacture vaccines for a UN effort.”
Agriq-Quest says Kenyan government to blame for sterilizations

After having its license suspended by the Kenyan government, Agriq-Quest was quick to blame government officials for the problem. They told the media that the government’s decisions to suspend Agriq-Quest’s license wasn’t because the vaccines were dangerous, but because Agriq-Quest refused to “doctor the tests for them.”

“The company’s results from tests carried out on the vials showed that the samples of the vaccines were contaminated as had been claimed by the Catholic Church and Agriq-Quest claimed the government wanted the results altered to show that they were fit to be administered to women and children,” reported Business Daily Africa.

“chemtrail lung,” a new health epidemic causing brain and lung problems across society

Doctor warns world about “chemtrail lung,” a new health epidemic causing brain and lung problems across society

04/25/2018 / By Isabelle Z.

https://www.depopulation.news/2018-04-25-doctor-warns-world-about-chemtrail-lung-a-new-health-epidemic.html

The existence of chemtrails used to be a topic of debate, but they are now being more widely acknowledged by experts like meteorologists to scientists. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to deny that they exist as more and more people are coming down with illnesses related to chemtrails.

When TV host Rachel Reenstra had trouble overcoming a persistent cough, accompanied by aches, pains, and fever, she visited a doctor. After chest x-rays revealed a type of bronchitis, she was given antibiotics, which only seemed to make her feel worse.

Her doctor told her that lots of bacterial infections are going around, and when she asked him where they are coming from, he told her the truth that many doctors wouldn’t dare reveal to their patients: Chemtrails are at the heart of widespread lung problems right now. Surprised by his candor, she asked if she could videotape him talking about the phenomenon. You can see the video below; the unnamed doctor appears just before the 8-minute mark.

The doctor says he has witnessed hundreds of Californians suffering from this problem, which he calls “chemtrail lung.” He says it is an “emerging problem” that is being faced all around the world, with the toxic gases, chemicals, virus particles, heavy metals and other gases that are being sprayed into the atmosphere leading to problematic levels of respiratory infections.

He added that it’s particularly bad where Reenstra lives in California thanks to the area’s proximity to Palmdale Airport. He said that the area’s topography and the Santa Ana Winds make this problem worse, and the fact that many of the nation’s most polluted cities are found in California doesn’t help. In addition, he cited gases from fracking as contributing to the problem, along with antibiotic overuse and inhaling mold and mildew.

Interestingly, Reenstra’s symptoms initially pointed to the flu. When she told her doctor she hadn’t gotten a flu shot, he was relieved. In the video, you can also see the courageous doctor admitting that he does not recommend the flu shot except for a select few and even then, he advises against getting it every year. He points out that scientists basically guess what to include in each year’s vaccine, and some years it’s less than 20 percent effective. He feels it doesn’t benefit patients, and they are better off being proactive about health and prevention than relying on shots.

Both the doctor and Reenstra are risking their careers by talking publicly about this controversial issue, and one can only hope that their courage will inspire others to speak out.

Nearly everyone on Earth breathes in unsafe air

It’s not just chemtrails you need to worry about, by the way; there’s also the matter of particulate matter. The type of fine particulate matter that comes from car exhausts, for example, can cause inflammation in the lungs and beyond, contributing to heart disease and insulin resistance.

A recent report from the Health Effects Institute found that 95 percent of our planet’s population breathes in unsafe air, which comes from everything from burning solid fuels like coal or biomass to transportation emissions. Last year, more than six million people’s deaths were related to air pollution, with causes like chronic lung disease, lung cancer, stroke or heart attack.

With so many toxins already floating around in the air we breathe, the last thing we need is chemtrails putting even more toxic substances into our air. Discover more news about geoengineering and chemtrails at Geoengineering.news.

Some natural products companies now engaging in consumer fraud over heavy metals found in their products, by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

Some natural products companies now engaging in consumer fraud over heavy metals found in their products

Heavy metals
Business-Professionals-Dismiss-Reject-Ethics

(NaturalNews) Perhaps I shouldn’t be so easily amused, but I can hardly stop laughing at the theatrical attempts by some people in the natural products industry to convince their customers that eating heavy metals is good for you. Granted, most companies in the natural health space are very ethical and responsible. They are becoming more and more aware of the heavy metals issue in their products and they are taking steps right now to source cleaner materials and provide more transparency to customers. But some companies are still in a state of total denial over heavy metals. In the aftermath of my own science-based findings of significant concentrations of heavy metals in popular “superfood” products, some of these companies are now attempting to push sheer delusions onto their own customers, claiming that heavy metals are good for you.

It all sounds almost exactly like vaccine companies — “Mercury in flu shots improves brain performance!” — or biotech firms like Monsanto who say “GMOs and glyphosate are harmless! Eat more!”

And yet, as I’m sure you will agree, the strange idea that heavy metals are safe to eat (apparently at any dose) is wholly inconsistent with the core principles and beliefs of health-conscious consumers. The very basis of the entire organic industry, natural products industry and superfoods industry is that it DOES matter what you eat!

Pseudoscience excuses
What we’re really finding is that the issue of heavy metals is rapidly separating genuine health-conscious industry leaders from the hucksters who hope you can be manipulated into eating more of their products that contain lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium.

They’ve got all sorts of bizarre, pseudoscientific arguments for denying the harm of heavy metals. One person whose products contain heavy metals is now publicly claiming that heavy metals are trace minerals that your body needs. I’m even wondering if he will soon come out with a “Heavy Metals Vitamin” product so you can meet your daily requirement for lead and mercury. It starts to sound a lot like the “energy-boosting radiation pills” sold by charlatans in the early 20th century.

Another argument organized by one particular industry group claims that you can eat all the heavy metals you want because your body doesn’t absorb them anyway. Somehow, your body absorbs iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, calcium and copper, but according to these people, your body magically and selectively does not absorb all the “bad metals” which are found in their own products.

By what digestive miracle such selective absorption takes place is never explained, of course. Perhaps selective absorption is invoked with a magic wand waved over the contaminated food before consuming it.

How can concentration not matter?
Another central argument from the heavy metals deniers is that concentrations don’t matter. If 50 ppb of a heavy metal is considered safe, then 500 ppb or even 5,000 ppb must also be safe too, they ridiculously argue.

Such a position is, of course, complete nonsense. Concentration is the single most important factor in determining toxicity for an element or chemical. The higher the concentration of a toxic element, the greater the risk of harm.

This is especially true considering the massive quantities of superfoods or natural products which are regularly consumed by millions of consumers. In the popular category of proteins, a typical one-scoop serving is 23 grams. Some readers told us on Facebook that they would eat six scoops a day. If the protein they are eating happens to contain just 2 ppm cadmium, 0.5 ppm lead and 10 ppm tungsten, this means their daily intake of these metals is:

• 276 micrograms of cadmium
• 69 micrograms of lead

To argue that the routine consumption of these levels of heavy metals has no health consequence whatsoever is beyond irresponsible. It is fraudulent, and it smacks of precisely the kind of quackery the scientific skeptics routinely accuse natural products companies of practicing.

In part, they are actually correct. There is unfortunately some level of fraud in the natural products industry just like you find in the pharmaceutical industry, vaccine industry and the dog food industry. At the same time, there are also ethical, responsible companies who go to tremendous lengths to ensure the purity and safety of their products. In fact, I’ve gone out of my way to publicize the really clean products we’ve tested such as One World Whey proteins from Synergistic Nutrition as well as all the incredibly clean iodine products across many brands.

So the argument that heavy metals don’t matter in natural products is immediately devoid of any ethical or scientific standing. Of course heavy metals matter. If Brand A of chocolate chips contains 1000 ppb lead, while Brand B chocolate chips contain no lead (but are otherwise equivalent), which brand is safer for your children to consume on a regular basis? The obvious and correct answer is Brand B. Reducing exposure to dietary toxins is always the right choice. And personally, I would really question the ethics and even the scientific grasp of anyone who argues that reducing exposure to dietary toxins doesn’t matter in the least.

Bizarre, illogical arguments
The arguments of these heavy metals deniers have no basis in rational thought, either. One person argued that heavy metals are harmless by claiming that calcium and iron are heavy metals, too, in a vague sense based on the periodic table of elements. But that argument makes no sense from a health perspective. Calcium is obviously not lead, or else they wouldn’t have different atomic weights and different names. The tactic of trying to blur the lines between the wildly different toxicities of selected elements by claiming they are all “heavy metals” is little more than parlor trick quackery and deliberate obfuscation published with the malicious intent of misleading consumers.

Some people are even arguing that eating lead, cadmium, arsenic and mercury in trace amounts is “essential” to your health in some way. “Far from being toxic, at low trace levels, many heavy metals are essential,” writes one heavy metals denier who sells natural detox products. One of his own products, by the way, was designed to remove the very same heavy metals he now claims are good for you.

The claim that toxic elements are “essential” in trace amounts is utterly false, of course. There is no essential biological or nutritive requirement for lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury or even tungsten. These elements — and many others — offer only toxicity, not nutrition. And the more you consume of them, the worse the risk of organ damage becomes. There is no “beneficial” dose of mercury for almost exactly the same reason that there is no beneficial dose of glyphosate or pesticides.

What these heavy metals deniers are doing, of course, is desperately trying to protect the profits they earn from selling products contaminated with heavy metals. It’s the dirty little secret of the natural products industry: much of what is marketed as pristine, organic, high-vibration food and superfood is actually grown in heavily contaminated regions of the world. It’s imported into the USA, packaged in fancy-looking canisters and boxes, then sold to all-too-trusting customers who are later shocked to discover that these products contain toxic elements in concerning concentrations (especially when consumed repeatedly, day after day, for a period of many years).

If they blow off heavy metals, what else might their products contain that could harm you?
My advice is that we all stop buying products from companies that blow off the heavy metals issue. After all, if they claim heavy metals are not a health concern — at any concentration — then what else might they also be hiding in their products that could be harmful?

In response to the heavy metals issue, a responsible company would say, “Although we believe our products are already safe, we are listening to our customers and working to source materials with even lower concentrations of lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, tungsten and other heavy metals.”

An irresponsible — even dangerous — company, on the other hand, essentially says, “Heavy metals? Who cares! They’re fine! Eat more!” And with that, you really have to wonder what else they’re blowing off in terms of product safety and quality control.

After all, someone who thinks eating lead is perfectly safe for their customers might also think that “a little GMO” is just fine, too. Or perhaps some pesticide residues. How about a little BPA? Or fluoride? Or even some synthetic hormones! Using the same logic they have already invoked, they could argue that “a little pesticide does the body good” and therefore you shouldn’t be concerned about eating it.

Don’t be suckered by charlatans
The bottom line truth on all this — and this might come as a total shock to hear me say this — is that just like in any other industry, there are quacks, charlatans and con artists in the natural products industry, too. Fortunately, they are few in number, but they do exist. And when confronted with scientific facts about the elemental composition of their products, they immediately leap to desperate strategies like attacking Natural News instead of just cleaning up their products and responding to their own customers’ desire for clean products.

There are profits to protect, after all. And if they can phrase their denials in some impressive-sounding pseudoscientific jargon, some people might actually buy it.

But don’t you be suckered by it. Always seek to reduce your dietary exposure to heavy metals.

Use our Forensic Food Labs to check on heavy metals levels for products you consume
Fortunately, we are working on your behalf to make that easier to accomplish. The Natural News Forensic Food Lab is publishing laboratory test results every week, and the results are available for free.

Far beyond merely pointing out products with high levels of heavy metals, we also show which products are remarkably clean of heavy metals, too. For example, just yesterday we published the results of our laboratory testing of popular brands of nascent iodine.

We’ve also highlighted the incredible cleanliness of a popular brand of whey protein, which showed the lowest heavy metals we’ve ever seen in any proteins tested so far.

Our goal with the Natural News Forensic Food Lab is to empower consumers with enhanced knowledge about what’s in their foods, superfoods and dietary supplements. This goal is a noble one pursued in the interests of public safety, and we will not be deterred by the truly pathetic attacks and quack science denials from companies who are only destroying their own credibility by claiming that the heavy metals in their products don’t matter.

Get real. Or get lost.

Carbon-Trading Fraudsters at the U.N.

Carbon-Trading Fraudsters at the U.N.

Carbon-Trading Fraudsters at the U.N.

With his usual humor and wit, James Corbett gives his much-needed, succinct perspective on the report released this week by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This has led to the Mainstream Media outlets, like the UK Guardian to scream that we have “12 years to limit climate change catastrophe”. Just a year ago, the Guardian screamed we had only 3 years left till climate catastrophe but the magical cutoff date was just moved from 2020 to 2030.

Corbett eviscerates the IPCC’s faulty science and demonstrates that there is no “hockey stick” of Global Warming in our current Holocene Epoch, whether anthropogenic (human-caused) or otherwise. Previous geological eras have seen vast swings in Earth’s temperature but the planet entered into a comparatively stable period following the end of the last Ice Age about 12,000 years ago.

Corbett amply demonstrates how Global Warming aka Anthropogenic Climate Change is bad science cooked up to justify implementing carbon taxes and a “cap and trade” financial derivatives schemes that make mortgage-backed securities look like the gold standard.

A growing list of scientists is questioning the accuracy of the IPCC’s climate projections. Deplorable “Climate Change deniers” are not saying that petrochemicals aren’t toxic or that these and other environmental pollutants and plastic garbage aren’t terrible problems. Indeed, Global Warming is a distraction from the very real threats being posed to our health in our air, food and water, from thousands of environmental toxins, ranging from glyphosate, to petrochemicals, to radionulides and microwaves.

What’s being rejected is the faulty climate science, the fraudulent carbon-trading schemes and the supragovernmental bureaucracy made up of elitist U.N. psychopaths selling us out to the Globalist banksters.

Corbett closes by saying, “Even bigger than the trillion dollar climate scam that they’re trying to run right now, which of course will generate oodles of money for certain corrupt politicians and people and corporations that are in the back pockets of the banksters – yes, there is the monetary aspect to this – but it goes much deeper into the heart of the technocratic agenda, itself by way of carbon eugenics…that is going to try to get us into the technocratic enslavement grid. It is coming and you can see it clearly. The way they hype these types of UN reports, as if they are going to be the saviors of humans. Newsflash: They’re not.

“I’ll keep drilling this point home, despite the fact that there are a lot of people out there that don’t like to hear this bitter message. It is horrible and it is hard to swallow and it is nightmarish but it is the truth and I will keep telling this truth until I get de-platformed from every platform…”
