Did you know that to this date we have explored less than five percent of the world’s oceans? (source) Think about that for a moment, we practically know nothing about our oceans and the lifeforms that could dwell there. Again, 95 percent of this realm remains unexplored and unseen by human eyes. It’s not hard keeping an open mind with regards to new discoveries when it comes to our oceans, they cover more than 70 percent of the planets surface. So when reading this article and watching these videos, it will probably serve you best to be open to the possibility that aquatic humanoid type beings might actually exist.

Mythology Of Mermaids

The story of aquatic humanoids or “mermaids” have been told and depicted in the mythologies of nearly every human culture in history for a very long time, which lends to the belief that these creatures once existed, and still do (in my opinion). I wrote an article about prehistoric flying machines, and illustrated how they were well documented throughout ancient history, and mirror much of the documentation that’s available today on UFOs. I have a feeling that the mermaid phenomenon could be another  truth that’s considered a part of ancient mythology. You can read that article HERE

Apparently, below is footage taken by Marine Biologist Dr. Torsten Schmidt and former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Biologist Dr. Paul Robertson confirmed that it was similar to a body that was found by himself and a team of scientists prior to this footage. This isn’t the only footage, apparently more footage was captured by the British coast guard which reveals a very similar looking aquatic humanoid type being, the faces are almost identical (will show later in the article).

If you forward the footage to approximately the 1:50 minute mark, you can see a close up of the face which again, is very similar to the footage captured by the UK coast guard that’s presented later in the article.

Is This Footage Real or Fake?

This footage was revealed by Animal Planet, a division of Discovery Communications that has a reputation for presenting scientific information to their viewers on the full range of life within the animal kingdom. It’s known as an educational channel, so for them to present something  completely fictional is highly questionable.

The show states that the film “is science fiction based on some real events and scientific theory, and amateur footage, including photos and videos shot by deep-sea fishermen that has never been seen the United States. It includes ncludes compelling, credible evidence.” (source) (source)

What about the ones involved within the film? One criticism of the film is that the people in the film aren’t really real, that they are actors. These theories have been flying around on websites, but nothing is mentioned by animal planet. Many websites claim that he (Dr. Paul Robertson, NOAA Scientist) is an actor named Andre Weideman. When you look at Andre’s pictures and compare them with Dr Paul Robertson, they actually look nothing alike, along with the other supposed actors in the film. But I am still open to the possibility, although it is hard to believe, especially after watching these interviews.

What lends further credence to the possibility that these people are who they say they are is this video below. Why would animal planet continue on with these interviews if it wasn’t real footage?  Why would the program have an appearance by the Mayor of Kiryat, Yam in Israel? (makes an appearance at 9:42) It is indeed him, and the show presents him as him, along with other guests (like Dr. Paul Robertson). Why would this 40 minute dialogue be mixed with real political figures and fake Marine Biologists and Geologists?

There is also very compelling footage in this interview at approximately 13:40, when the freeze face looks very similar to the one that the geologists captured in the video above.

 

Controversy Behind The Film

Another interesting note to mention is Dr. Paul Robertson’s twitter account. Which replies to questions of real and fake with responses such as “this is real.” Another comment that stood out to me was “Thanks to Animal Planet for making our story public. Don’t trust everything the government is telling you, hashtag “believeinmermaids.” (source)  Why would he have a twitter account, continually supporting the film, the facts that mermaids are real and creating awareness about other atrocities that happen in the ocean. Why would he tweet something like this?

Please read this related article, another phenomenon that was exposed by this mermaid documentary, something that the US Navy has denied for years : The U.S Navy Killing Thousands (possibly millions) of Whales, Dolphins and other marine life with Sonar & Weapons Testing.

Discovery news also points out that “there were interviews with real NOAA scientists.” They also point out that “though the filmmakers acknowledged that the film is science fiction mixed with fiction, it makes a strong case for the existence of the mermaid.” (source)

The NOAA has responded stating that no evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found saying that:

“The belief in mermaids may have arisen at the very dawn of our species. Magical female figures first appear in cave paintings in the late Palaeolithic (Stone Age) period some 30,000 years ago, when modern humans gained dominion over the land and, presumably, began to sail the seas. Half-human creatures, called chimeras, also about in mythology-in addition to mermaids, there were wise centaurs, wild satyrs, and frightful minotaurs, to name but a few. But are mermaids real? No evidence of acquatic humanoids has ever been found.” (source)

So, is there anyone out there that can add to this? If this is real footage, and there has been evidence found to support that mermaids, or mermen are real, do you think the government would tell us? I believe that anything that threatens our current understanding of human history, mythology, religion, evolution and more is not always told to us, that it would break the very foundations of the current control structure. I believe there are multiple reasons to illicit a cover up on such information, but that’s another topic in itself. The fact that the US government alone classifies almost 500 million pages of documents a year points to that. Also, the fact that governments have been caught lying on a number of issues for a long period time also lends credence to that possibility (Like Navy sonar and weapons testing killing marine life).

If there is any information about this footage that you can share in the comment section, whether it debunks it or proves it, please  do so. 

Further Information

I’ve been reading a book called The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall. This is for those who in their hearts actually do believe in aquatic humanoids.

I’d also like to point out Christopher Columbus claims to have seen mermaids in his “Natural History.” (source) William Shakespeare also made many references to mermaids, so it’s not just ancient history, it’s all the way up to modern history that the idea and claims of sightings of mermaids have existed.

As the gnomes were limited in their function to the elements of the earth, so the undines (a name given to the family of water elementals) function in the invisible, spiritual essence called humid (or liquid) ether. In its vibratory rate this is close to the element water, and so the undines are able to control, to a great degree, the course and function of this fluid in Nature. Beauty seems to be the keynote of the water spirits. Wherever we find them pictured in art or sculpture, they abound in symmetry and grace. Controlling the water element, which has always been a feminine symbol, its natural that the water spirits should most often be symbolized as female.

There are many groups of undines. Some inhabit waterfalls, where they can been seen in the spray; others are indigenous to swiftly moving rivers; some have their habitat in dripping, oozing fens or marshes; while other groups dwell in clear mountain lakes. According to the philosophers of antiquity, every fountain had its nymph; every ocean wave its oceanic. The water spirits were known under such names as oreades, nereides, lemonades, naiades, water sprites, sea maids, mermaids, and pot amides. Often the water nymphs derived their names from the streams, lakes, or seas in which they dwelt. 

In describing them, the ancients agreed on certain salient features. In general, nearly all the undines closely resembled human beings in appearance and size, though the ones inhabiting small streams and fountains were correspondingly lesser proportions. It was believed that these water spirits were occasionally capable of assuming the appearance of normal human beings and actually associating with men and women. There are many legends about these spirits and their adoption by the families of fishermen, but in nearly every case the undines heart the call of the waters and returned to the realm of Neptune, the King of the Sea.

Practically nothing is known concerning the male undines. The water spirits did not establish homes in the same way that the gnomes did, but lives in coral caves under the ocean or among the reeds growing on the banks of rivers or the shores of lakes. Among the Celts there is a legend to the effect that Ireland was peopled, before the coming of its present inhabitants, by a strange race of semidivine creatures; with the coming of the modern Celts they retired into the marshes and fens, where they remain even to this day.(Coincidentally the apparent real footage above is shot off the coast of Ireland) 

Diminutive undines lived under lily pads and in little house of moss sprayed by waterfalls. The undines worked with the vital essences and liquids in plants, animals, and human beings, and were present in everything containing water. When seen, the undines generally resembled the goddess of Greek Statuary. They rose from the water draped in mist and could not exist very long apart from it.

There are many families of undines, each with its peculiar limitations. It is impossible to consider them here in detail. Their ruler, Necksa, they love and honour, and serve untiringly. Their temperament is said to be vital, and to them has been given as their thorne the western corner of creation. They are rather emotional beings, friendly to human life and fond of serving mankind. They are sometimes pictured riding on dolphins or other great fish and seem to have a special love of flowers and plants, which they serve almost as devotedly and intelligently as the gnomes. Ancient poets have said that the songs of the undines were heard in the West Wind and that their lives were consecrated to the beautifying of the material earth.

New Study Links Acetaminophen (Tylenol) To Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity

Published

on

Another damning study indicates it is simply time to pull the plug on this outdated drug.

The study just published in JAMA Pediatrics once again indicated that women who take acetaminophen during pregnancy are more likely to have a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The researchers also found that prenatal exposure to the medication was associated with a higher risk of having children who exhibit other emotional or behavioral symptoms.

Recent detailed analysis of clinical studies on acetaminophen (Tylenol) have concluded that this popular drug was ineffective for low back pain and provided no significant clinical relief of hip or knee osteoarthritis (OA) pain, while quadrupling the risk for liver damage.

All together, the results from all of these analyses further calls into question whether this drug should still be on the over-the-counter market or at all.

Background Data:

Acetaminophen is the only remaining member of the class of drugs known as “aniline analgesics” that is still on the market, as the rest were discontinued long ago. Acetaminophen only blocks the feelings of pain and reduces fever, it exerts no significant anti-inflammatory or therapeutic action.

It is well-known that acetaminophen is very hard on the liver. About 40% of regular acetaminophen users show signs of liver damage. Acetaminophen reduces the liver’s store of the important detoxifying aid and antioxidant glutathione. When acetaminophen is combined with alcoholic drinks or other compounds toxic to the liver including other medications, its negative effects on the liver are multiplied. It should definitely not be used in anyone with impaired liver function and given the stress the liver experiences during pregnancy, it appears unwise to use it while carrying a child for both mother and the developing fetus.

Acetaminophen is often the drug of choice in children to relieve fever. However, use for fever in the first year of life is associated with an increase in the incidence of asthma and other allergic symptoms later in childhood. Asthma appears to be another disease process that is influenced greatly by antioxidant mechanisms. Acetaminophen severely depletes glutathione levels not only in the liver, but presumably other tissues as well, and should definitely not be used in people with asthma.

Each year acetaminophen causes over 100,000 calls to poison control centers; 50,000 emergency room visits, 26,000 hospitalizations, and more than 450 deaths from liver failure. In addition, regular use of acetaminophen is linked to a higher likelihood of Alzheimer’s disease, infertility, and hearing loss (especially in men under 50 years of age). Acetaminophen use during pregnancy has also been linked to the development of ADHD confirming animal studies showing acetaminophen use in pregnancy can disrupt normal brain development.

New Data:

To more closely assess the associations between maternal prenatal acetaminophen use and behavioral issues in their children, researchers in the United Kingdom collected and analyzed data 7,796 mothers along with their children. The data included acetaminophen use and behavioral assessments of the children were 7 years old. From this data the estimated risk ratios for behavioral problems in children after prenatal exposure to acetaminophen was determined.

The results showed that prenatal acetaminophen use at 18 and 32 weeks of pregnancy was associated with a 42% increased risk of the child having conduct problems and hyperactivity symptoms, while maternal acetaminophen use at 32 weeks was also associated with a 29% increased risk of the child having emotional symptoms and a 46% increase in total behavioral difficulties.

Obviously, the researchers concluded “Children exposed to acetaminophen prenatally are at increased risk of multiple behavioral difficulties, and the associations do not appear to be explained by unmeasured behavioral or social factors linked to acetaminophen use.”

Comment:

The results from this study and others are clear. Stay away from acetaminophen. Most people consider acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol) as being an extremely safe pain reliever for both children and adults. The reality is that it can be extremely dangerous and causes significant side effects. The FDA has done a poor job alerting the public to the dangers of acetaminophen. In my opinion, it is a drug that serves no real medical purpose in the 21stcentury. Bottom line, it is time to pull it from the market.

As far as alternatives to acetaminophen during pregnancy, I would recommend ginger. Historically, the majority of complaints for which ginger (Zingiber officinale) was used concerned the gastrointestinal system as well as pain and inflammation. Several double-blind studies have shown ginger to yield positive results in a variety of gastrointestinal issues, especially those related to nausea and vomiting including severe morning sickness. In regards to pain and inflammation, dozens of clinical studies have supported this use with positive results in various forms of arthritis, chronic low back pain, muscle pain, and painful menstruation.

Ginger powder, ginger tea or a shot of fresh ginger juice added to any fresh fruit or vegetable juice is certainly a much better option to acetaminophen anytime, but especially during pregnancy.

My overall interpretation of the study is that depletion of glutathione caused by acetaminophen leaves cells, especially brain cells, susceptible to damage. I believe that future studies will not only show more evidence of a link to ADHD, but also autism as well. Glutathione is absolutely critical in protecting cellular function. Any factor that depletes glutathione is obviously going to alter proper development. In addition to acetaminophen, the following factors can deplete glutathione:

To boost your glutathione level it is important to focus on a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables. Their rich source of antioxidant phytochemicals and nutrients spare the use of glutathione and help to keep cellular levels high.

‘Targeted Individuals’ Activist Getting Stonewalled In Seeking Anti-‘Organized Torture’ Legislation

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Tomo Shibata, who has asked 9 California legislators to introduce a bill that specifically criminalizes 'Organized Covert Torture,' has uncovered evidence of undue influence from the perpetrators over the legislative process.

  • Reflect On:

    How can those of us within the awakening community take the efforts of Dr. Shibata and use them to help us all better understand the truth about 'Organized Covert Torture' in a way that we are empowered to put an end to it?

In a previous article, “New California Bill Proposal Aims To Protect ‘Targeted Individuals’,” I described how Dr. Tomo Shibata proposed a bill to members of the California legislature entitled ‘The Organized Torture Act,’ which seeks to criminalize many of the types of attacks that are clandestinely made on targeted individuals.

Now, it appears that Dr. Shibata is getting stonewalled by the California lawmakers she has approached to introduce the bill. And it is Dr. Shibata’s belief that the very forces she is fighting against, including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center intelligence contractors in coordination with local law-enforcement officials, are influential in dissuading these politicians from introducing the bill.

What Is ‘Organized Covert Torture’?

This article by Ramola D explains the genesis of Dr. Shibata’s bill proposal and helps us better understand the attacks that ‘targeted individuals’ are facing:

This proposal was made, Dr. Shibata states, on the basis of complaints to human rights groups from high numbers of residents across California from various cities including San Diego, Berkeley, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Palo Alto, and others, of “organized covert torture” whereby, in lieu of outright abduction, victims are kept under constant control of the covert torture organizations by organized stalking, sustained surreptitious monitoring, cyberstalking, and stealth physical assault and battery with radiation weaponry such as microwave/radar surveillance weapons. Different sources offer varying estimates, running into hundreds of thousands, of the numbers of organized covert torture victims often labeled “Targeted Individuals” within the USA and around the world.

It may be hard for some to believe that this phenomenon is real, let alone affecting hundreds of thousands, and possibly millions of individuals on the planet. But that is why this is such a diabolical process. It is designed to appear to outsiders as though it is not happening at all, while some of the tactics are not fully hidden from the victims themselves, when the desire is to inflict a sense of helplessness and paranoia upon the victim.

What is beyond doubt, for those who have researched into this matter, is that technology does indeed exist to remotely target individual people with invisible weapons that cause physical pain as well as debilitating mental and auditory stimulation (source).

advertisement - learn more

This form of torture and human experimentation has the most power when the general public does not believe in its existence. This is why the awakening community must stand behind victims and give their stories credence, as I outlined in a previous article ‘Targeted Individuals Need The Awakening Community To Believe Their Stories.’ And this may be one reason why Dr. Shibata is working tirelessly to get this bill proposal introduced in the California legislature, since just the introduction of the bill (let alone the passing of it into law) will bring it into the public domain and give this issue the legitimacy it desperately needs.

The Culprits

However, ‘legitimacy’ is the last thing that the perpetrators of organized covert torture want. This is why Dr. Shibata believes that these perpetrators are playing a direct role in overtly and covertly discouraging California State legislators from introducing ‘The Organized Torture Act.’

In Dr. Shibata’s email to me (which is the source of all the quotes from her in this article), she specifically points to local law enforcement in concert with Fusion Centers as the most visible culprits of ‘Organized Covert Torture’:

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center intelligence contractors “empower frontline law enforcement…to understand local implications of national intelligence, thus enabling local officials to better protect their communities.” (source)—the Fusion Center’s rationale for the organized surveillance and covert torture operations of those who are wrongfully named as criminals and/or terrorists without any due process, as per Former FBI Special Agent Geral Sosbee’s testimony.

Dr. Shibata believes that these intelligence contractors could “empower” police groups as a front organization to mind-control the California legislature:

The police have very strong lobbying groups at the California state legislature. The Fusion Center intelligence contractors could help police lobbying groups in becoming so “strong” in influencing the California legislature, by deploying the following technique: covertly manipulate those who exert the most influence on the target-legislators, who might introduce the bill to prohibit organized covert torture, in order to safeguard the excessive privileges of the police/intelligence contractors to torture targeted individuals.

And indeed, her experience dealing with legislators bears this out.

Stonewalled By Legislators

In total, Dr. Shibata has asked 9 California legislators to review the bill proposal and introduce it to the legislature. Any bill that amends the Penal Code is required to go through an ‘analysis’ by the Public Safety Committee Counsel. This analysis, according to Dr. Shibata, ‘exerts considerable influence on the voting outcome of the members of the committee.’ The committee majority approval is needed first before the bill is introduced to all members of the legislature for voting. So, although the proposed bill has not yet been introduced, the legislative director of Assembly Member Shirley Weber went ahead and asked the Assembly Public Safety Committee Counsel to issue a provisional analysis of the proposed bill, in order for Dr. Weber to find out the prospects for the proposed bill in the legislature. Dr. Shibata believes that the opinions of this counsel have resulted from the undue influence of police lobby groups that front the intelligence operations behind covert organized torture.

In communication with Dr. Weber’s legislative director, Dr. Shibata was made aware that Weber’s office received the following advice from Assembly Public Safety Committee Deputy Chief Counsel Sandy Uribe:

1. The acts of organized covert torture and organized stalking, which the proposed bill prohibits, are already proscribed by the current Penal Code. There is no need for an addition law.

2. The incident, where a civilian complained about his inner ears injured by the police’s ongoing act of using an ultrasonic weapon at him, shot and killed a rookie female police officer in Davis, CA (20-minute driving distance from Sacramento) on January 10, 2019, would discourage the legislature from voting favorably on the proposed bill. The location of the incident is so close to the California capitol that this incident would considerably influence the voting results of the proposed bill.

Dr. Weber decided not to introduce the proposed bill upon receiving this advice. Yet, Dr. Shibata finds the advice highly questionable, and refuted it as follows:

Assembly Public Safety Committee Counsel Deputy Chief Uribe’s above advice prejudicially interprets the proposed bill text and the recent police officer’s murder incident in the light that is most protective of the excessive privileges of the police to torture targeted individuals. Please note that the police abuse discretion vested in them and elect not to enforce the existing laws against organized covert torture and organized stalking. The socio-legal context of the proposed legislation parallels that of the anti-domestic violence legislation, because the police abused their discretion vested in them and did not enforce the pre-existing law against battery in domestic relations, prior to the anti-domestic violence legislation. Just as many police officers themselves committed domestic violence at home back then, many police officers commit organized covert torture themselves today, along with the Fusion Center contractors and under the supervision of the FBI, as per Former FBI Special Agent Geral Sosbee’s aforementioned testimony.

The anti-domestic violence legislation established the rule of law in domestic relations and drastically reduced the killings of husbands by the battered wives at home. The proposed bill will establish the rule of law surrounding organized covert torture and thus will substantially prevent the killings of the police officers by the civilian victims of organized cover torture by the police, as exemplified by the aforementioned Davis police shooter, who had a violent criminal record. Indeed, L.A. law enforcement officers fire electronic weapons remotely at prison inmates, which the ACLU describes as “tantamount to torture,” according to CBS News. Therefore, the recent Davis police officer’s lethal shooting incident only casts light on the urgent need for the rule of law surrounding organized covert torture, instead of discouraging the legislature from voting against the proposed bill.

Another legislator Dr. Shibata asked to introduce the bill was Ed Chau, the chair of the Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee, and a former judge and an engineer, who has successfully authored bills against the technological invasion of privacy and is already aware of one of the most sophisticated technologies used against targeted individuals, “synthetic telepathy,” which is known to have been researched by the University of California at Irvine and funded by the Army (source). The task of preparing an internal report to Chau on the proposed bill was delegated to Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee Consultant/Attorney Nichole Rapier Rocha. In a phone conversation with Rocha, Dr. Shibata found out that Rocha had received unsolicited advice from Sandy Uribe similar to the advice she gave Dr. Weber’s office, which led Dr. Shibata to ask the following question:

Why did super busy Sandy Uribe go out of her way to identify/trace which influential staffer at the legislature was still reviewing the bill proposal for potential recommendation and further to “warn” that influential staffer of the said “problems” of the bill proactively?

While Ed Chau has not yet decided whether to sponsor the bill, the following legislators have already declined: Assembly Member Reginald Jones-Sawyer, Senator Nancy Skinner, Senator Jim Beall, and Senator Chris Holden. Their refusal to take up the challenge, according to Dr. Shibata, is partly “due to their apathetic complicity in leaving thousands of victims, in California alone, continuously and indefinitely exposed to irreversibly maiming torture and slow-kill murder.” But she also has seen telling signs of infiltration within legislators’ committees and the possible influence of the pharmaceutical industry in discouraging these legislators from introducing the bill.

Aside from Assembly Member Ed Chau, those legislators who have yet to make a decision are Senator Steven Bradford and Senator Holly Mitchell. Whether or not the tremendous effort made by Dr. Tomo Shibata to get this bill introduced to the California legislature will come to fruition rests in their hands. Time is short, as the bill introduction deadline is February 22, 2019. If you would like to show your support for Dr. Shibata, please try to let your opinions be known to these three remaining California legislators or go to Dr. Shibata’s GoFundMe Page.

The Takeaway

While her proposal to introduce legislation may not be accepted this time around, the time and effort that Dr. Shibata has put into this enterprise has still afforded us the opportunity to see a little more deeply into the mechanisms of control behind organized covert torture and the complicity between politics, law enforcement and intelligence that is needed to keep it in place. Her work is helping to bring the phenomena more into public awareness, and it is through growing awareness and our commitment to uncover the truth that we will one day end these kinds of operations.

YouTube Will Stop Recommending Videos Of 9/11 ‘Conspiracy Theories’ To Users

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    YouTube has decided to change its algorithm for recommending videos by excluding certain videos such as those they feel 'make blatantly false claims about historic events like 9/11.'

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see through the deception and come to know the truth about mainstream media's efforts to promote a false narrative and create within us a disempowering perception about our world?

Heartwarming, isn’t it? Social media giants like YouTube are willing to sacrifice advertising profits in order to ensure that their cherished viewers are deterred from seeing content that YouTube deems dangerous and potentially damaging to their viewers’ mental and emotional health. They’re doing this even though these viewers have demonstrated that they want to see this content. It’s just like having a Big Brother around to help steer us onto the straight and narrow path, isn’t it?

Examples the social media giant cited include videos “promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historic events like 9/11.”

Now, we can talk about any of these examples cited above for wildly different reasons, but let’s stick with the 9/11 theme. While there is no denying that it was a ‘historic event,’ what is implied by this phrase is that 9/11 has an established, well-proven historical account based on the government’s explanation of what happened and supported by the ‘official’ report cobbled together by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). For YouTube, this report is seen as the authoritative ‘last word’ on what happened in New York City on September 11th, 2001.

I could spend pages detailing how many 9/11 ‘conspiracy’ videos, like ones done by the Architects and Engineers For 9/11 Truth, are much more coherent, objective and evidence-based than the NIST report or mainstream media coverage on the subject. But no need, as this is fairly self-evident for anyone who has done a modicum of research into the subject.

What is important to note here is to read the phrase ‘making blatantly false claims’ as really meaning ‘making claims that deviate from the official, controlled mainstream narrative.’ In this regard, the takeover of social media companies by the global elite, as with the prior consolidation of traditional media companies, has been done mainly to try to continue to have a stronghold on how human beings interpret past events, in a way that advances their agenda.

Understanding ‘Recommended’ Videos

Now, to be specific, YouTube is not simply deleting videos they don’t want on their platform (well, they’ve done that too, but that’s another story). They are changing the process by which YouTube ‘recommends’ videos to users based on that viewer’s preferences.

advertisement - learn more

‘Recommended’ videos are those videos that YouTube makes available to the viewer alongside whatever video they are watching, using artificial intelligence to come up with a selection most likely to tempt viewers to continue watching after they are done with the video they are engaged with.

Guillaume Chaslot, a former Google engineer that helped build the artificial intelligence (AI) used to curate recommended videos, said the goal of YouTube’s AI was to keep users on the site as long as possible in order to promote more advertisements. What’s the ‘problem’ with this, according to YouTube? This algorithm encouraged some people with a penchant for ‘Conspiracy Theory’ (to use the famed psy-op label coined by the CIA) to go down a dangerous rabbit hole of misinformation, delusion and potential violence.

Andrew Mendrala, supervising attorney of Georgetown Law’s Civil Rights Clinic warns that the previous YouTube algorithm is “an echo chamber. It’s a feedback loop. It creates an insular community that is continually fed misinformation that reinforces their prejudices.”

Chaslot agrees with this sentiment, saying that when a user was enticed by multiple conspiracy videos, the AI not only became biased by the content the hyper-engaged users were watching, it also kept track of the content that those users were engaging with in an attempt to reproduce that pattern with other users. In a thread of tweets he recently posted, Chaslot praised the change that actually prevents flagged videos from being included within the recommended selection. His comment about this change should give us pause:

“It’s only the beginning of a more humane technology. Technology that empowers all of us, instead of deceiving the most vulnerable.”

Humane? Censorship and controlling information have been couched in many terms recently, but to call this change ‘humane’ feels like the height of hypocrisy. It truly strains credulity to imagine that a corporation like YouTube actually cares about the ‘most vulnerable’ people in society.

Mainstream Rationalization

Let’s call this most recent change in policy by a social media giant what it is: a small step in a subtle, ongoing effort to control the minds of people and reinforce mainstream perceptions rather than letting people sift through a variety of opinions and think for themselves.

There is little the public can do about the policy change itself because YouTube is a private company with legal rights to decide what is broadcast on their platform. But it is the rationalization that we hear in the mainstream for justifying this change that is hard to endure. YouTube claims that the change “strikes a balance between maintaining a platform for free speech and living up to our responsibility to users.” Here’s how a Guardian article frames the mainstream narrative on this particular subject:

YouTube, Facebook and other social media platforms have faced growing scrutiny in recent years for their role in hosting and amplifying political propaganda and abusive content that spark real-world consequences and can lead to violence.

In 2016, the conspiracy theory that became known as “Pizzagate” – a popular rightwing fake news story alleging that the Comet Ping Pong restaurant was linked to a child sex ring involving the Hillary Clinton campaign – motivated a gunman to fire a weapon inside the restaurant.

It’s amazing how often this one stooge firing a weapon inside Comet Ping Pong–quite possibly a staged event–is pulled out in mainstream media to try to discredit any investigations into Pizzagate. This technique is used often to bring fear and ridicule upon people following alternative narratives in an attempt to sway the public back to the mainstream perception.

Mainstream Projection

Then the mainstream parades out people like Mendrala, who will make claims that providing viewers more of what they are interested in creates an ‘echo chamber’ and a ‘feedback loop.’ In reality, these comments are pure projection, as this is what mainstream media has been and is desperately trying to continue to be: an untouchable, self-perpetuating Ministry of Truth. As George Orwell wrote in his novel 1984:

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

Accordingly, we see how the mainstream media has been working in alliance with the social media giants to ‘control the present’ by incrementally removing certain content from view as we move forward, a slow and patient high-tech form of ‘book burning.’ In controlling the present, they then control the past–i.e. they get to say what events in the past mean, creating a controlled interpretation of the past that then informs us about who we are and what life is about. This then allows them to control the future, which enables the gradual acceleration of the program to enslave humanity.

The Takeaway

Our ability to see through the mainstream deception is going to be our greatest asset in averting the agenda of global elite enslavement. While they do have the power and the wealth, we have the numbers, and we have the truth on our side. If together we truly aspire to awaken to know the truth, it will set us free.
