The Invasion Of Iraq Has Destroyed The Lives of Millions: Looking Back On The Devastation

Published

on

America’s attempted liberation of Iraq in the first decade of the 21st century was an occupation that cost the American government trillions of dollars as well as losing 4489 American lives and physically wounding over 100,000. The price Americans paid was high for this occupation. And Americans are still paying the price over ten years later, with a surreal increase in returned soldier suicide rates, now at 18 Veterans a day. Iraq will be remembered as a conflict as costly as Vietnam for decades to come.

On the other side, the damage done to the Iraq population has been investigated as well. Having their country torn apart by war for over a decade has left tragic consequences. The most devastating that is still largely unaddressed is the use of radioactive substances in Fallujah, a City 70km west of Baghdad.

Fallujah since 2004 has experienced a 12 time increase in ALL types of cancers in children under the age of 14, as well as a huge increase in child mortality rates. Complicating these child mortality rates is the rate of birth defects in children being born post 2004. In a comparison, Fallujah is finding 14 times more cases of birth defects, such as congenital malformations, than Nagasaki and Hiroshima after the Atomic bombs were dropped. Fallujah also experienced a 38 fold increase in leukemia rates and a ten-fold increase in breast cancer. These statistics are hugely out of place in relation to Iraq’s middle-eastern neighbors.

These increases in cancer and birth defects/mortality rates have recently been undoubtedly linked to the use of depleted uranium and white phosphorus by the United States in their “liberalization” of Iraq. As you can see in the video below, Al Jazeera reporter Dahr Jamail has been investigating the topic over the ten year period and the images he presents are truly horrific. What I find the most troubling in this video is the fact that this radiation will last in Fallujah and Iraq for thousands of years, with the half-life of depleted uranium being 4.5 billion years. This means the cradle of civilization, where societies that shaped the world today have existed for over 10,000 years will now be a radioactive wasteland.

In using depleted uranium in ammunition casings and white phosphorus smoke grenades the American government broke all laws in the Geneva Convention in regard to chemical warfare. America has poisoned a country indefinitely and currently is denying any allegations that long-term illness is a problem in the area, even though returned soldiers are coming home with increased rates of cancer, after being in the proximity of depleted uranium and white phosphorus.

As if it could not get any worse for the Iraqi population, the Iraqi people also lost their entire history in the occupation. In 2003, the Baghdad museum was bombarded and looted. Naomi Klein and Robert Fisk have both done some incredible reporting on this matter. (Naomi Klein – Shock Doctrine. Robert Fisk – articles cc.2003) Naomi Klein describes in her book “Shock Doctrine” how American Soldiers were in a position to stop the looting but were under orders not too. This is interesting as Andrew Lawler uncovered that months prior to the American invasion, American antiquity collectors met with the Department of defence, here they pushed Bush in weakening the Iraqi laws that were in place to stop their physical history being taken overseas. Of the items stolen were 4,795 cylinder seals as well as one of the oldest copies of the Koran in the world. These seals age from anything from 500 years ago  to

3000 years ago, and their price varies, yet prior to the invasion one seal was sold for $424,000.

The American occupation cost hundreds of thousands of lives and ruined millions more. Even though the occupation is over now, entire cities in Iraq face an uncertain future. When the civilian populations living in these cities realize the severity of this situation, I am sure the majority of those able will flock from the city as refugees. With the land radioactive there will be no sustained growth for hundreds of years, leaving the people without means to clean food or water. It is truly tragic that the population that is being most affected is the young. Not only being severely physically disadvantaged, the children of Iraq have lost their history. This unfortunately is proving increasingly harder to track down as more time lapses since the looting. The fate of Iraq is perilous. It will take more than sympathy from developed countries to help them back on their feet; and at this point in the early 21st Century it looks unlikely to happen in the short term.

Ghislaine Maxwell Has Tapes of Politicians With Children According To A Long Time Friend

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Christopher Mason, a  TV host and journalist/reporter has gone on record and said he was told that Epstein rigged his multiple homes with cameras and kept tapes of everyone/everything. He says Ghislaine Mazwell has access to this footage.

  • Reflect On:

    Is Maxwell being used to take a select few individuals down by powerful people who are also involved? Is this simply a political/intelligence ploy when this issue is far bigger?

What Happened: Christopher Mason, a  TV host and journalist known for his book, “The Art of the Seal” which exposed a price-fixing scandal within the art world that tells the story of elite people who conspired to cheat clients out of millions, has known Ghislaine Maxwell since the 1980s. He has gone on the record and said said he was told that Epstein rigged his multiple homes with cameras and kept surveillance tapes of everyone and everything that went on inside of them and that Ghislaine Maxwell, has access to all of this footage. Multiple media outlets are now reporting on this.

Here’s a picture of both of them together.

Mason is not the only one to accuse Epstein of being in the blackmail business. Jeffrey Epstein’s has clear ties to intelligence, there are clear links to U.S. and  Israeli intelligence A recent interview given by a former high-ranking official in Israeli military intelligence has also claimed that Epstein has a  sexual blackmail business, and that the operation was actually an Israeli intelligence operation run for the purposes of entrapping powerful individuals and politicians all over the world.

In an interview with Zev Shalev, former senior executive for Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence and CBS News executive producer and award-winning investigative journalist for Narativ, he claimed to have met Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell back in the 1980s and that both Epstein and Maxwell were already working with Israeli intelligence during that time period. You can read more about that here.

According to the New York Post:

“Ghislaine has always been as cunning as they come. She wasn’t going to be with Epstein all those years and not have some insurance,” the ex-friend told the news outlet….The secret stash of sex tapes I believe Ghislaine has squirrelled away could end up being her get-out-of-jail card if the authorities are willing to trade. She has copies of everything Epstein had. They could implicate some twisted movers and shakers,” the former friend said.

BUT

We must ask ourselves, has she worked something out?  Is this simply a ploy to take down a select individuals that some powerful people want taken down, when it really involves a whole lot more, including  the ones who are using Maxwell to possibly take others down? We will have to see, but it’s obviously a very important question to ask.

Why This Is Important: It’s important because there is already a lot of evidence existing that shows the people who are making major decisions, people within major global organizations like the UN, are making decisions for human beings with regards to all aspects of our life, from health, to education, to medicine and more. Politics and the world of our financial elite is overrun with corruption, deceit, lies, blackmail and more.

We have to ask ourselves, is it really surprising that our world is in the condition it is with regards to environmental issues, and many others, when those who are making major decisions in this category with regards to political policy are actively engaged in such immoral and unethical acts?

These moments that creep into the mainstream also highlight how this type of activity is able to sustain itself for such a long period of time, and that’s simply because these people have access to great power and control nearly everything.

A great example is Cardinal George Pell, who  a couple of years ago became  the highest ranking Vatican official to ever be convicted of child sexual abuse. Of course, he has now been freed from jail after Australia’s highest court overturned his conviction, but did you know that  he himself established The Diocesan Commission Into Sexual Abuse?  This is a common theme. The ones who we go to to combat these problems are often, themselves involved.

This is a very deep topic, and if you want to learn more about it you can watch our interview with Anneke Lucas, an author, speaker, advocate for child sex trafficking victims, and founder of the non-profit organization Liberation Prison Yoga, and creator of the Unconditional Model.

Her work is based off her 30-year journey to restore her mental and physical wellbeing after surviving some of the worst atrocities known to humankind before the age of 12. Sold as a young child into a murderous pedophile network by her family, she was rescued after nearly six years of abuse and torture.

You can access the full interview and start your free trial HERE on CETV, a platform we created to help combat internet censorship and allow us to continue to do our work and get the word out about various issues and topics.

You can also read this article that goes into more detail and provides more examples about this issue if you’re interested.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, do we really want to continue to follow, obey and take direction, orders and mandates from people who clearly don’t have the best interests of humanity at heart? Do we want to continue to hand our power over to a ‘leader’ who is made out to be the one who can really make change, or will we take back our power, our own consciousness and refuse to participate in a system that really leaves us no choice? What we have is the illusion of democracy, were not actually living in one.

Is Wayfair Really Trafficking Humans?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Allegations that Wayfair is trafficking humans hit the internet over the past few days as the company was selling utility cabinets, and other items, with human names for upwards of $14,000. Wayfair claims the listings were a mistake.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it our duty as citizens to not simply accept a company's denial of something? Is it important we look past the limited research of fact checkers and ask deeper questions? Where are these realizations leading us?

You have likely heard about it by now, allegations that Wayfair was selling everything from industrial cabinets, desks, pillows and shower curtains at extremely high prices, when in reality they were selling humans. It began as a Reddit thread, where a user who noticed extremely high priced utility cabinets on Wayfair asked if anyone else thought it was weird that there were female names in front of the descriptions of the items.

“Is it possible Wayfair involved in Human trafficking with their WFX Utility collection? Or are these just extremely overpriced cabinets? (Note the names of the cabinets) this makes me sick to my stomach if it’s true,” one Redditor user named PrincessPeach1987 posted.

This sparked a string of discussion into whether or not Wayfair was selling these items as a cover for trafficking humans. Over a couple of days, it blew up into a huge collective research project on the internet, rife full of great questions and at times false information. Nonetheless, any investigative journalist would tell you there is something here that has not yet been explained, and further investigation is a must because these allegations may very well be true.

A screengrab of Wayfair’s alleged website posting cabinets with human names being sold for upwards of $12,000 each.

Oddly, Wayfair’s product names match some children found to be recently missing in the US.

 

Although Wayfair has come out denying allegations of human trafficking and claimed the products were a mistake. Wayfair removed the product images from its website and said it plans to rename the products. The products were named Neriah, Yaritza, Samiyah and Alyvia ranging in price between $12,699.99 and $14,499.99.

“Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point,” Susan Frechette, a Wayfair spokeswoman.

It’s important to note that fact checkers have claimed this story is false, but their position is only based on Wayfair’s statement that it wasn’t true, not actual research and critical thinking. As per usual, no authentic and thorough research was done by fact checkers when it comes to this story.

Here at CE we asked some very critical questions and did a bit of deep diving of our own on this story. Our research is nowhere near done, but we have put some early parts of it into a segment of a show we have on CETV called The Takeaway. You can watch the segment below.

81% of Clinical Trial Volunteers Suffer Reactions to CanSino Biologics’ COVID-19 Vaccine

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines have shown severe reactions within 10 days after taking the vaccine.

  • Reflect On:

    Should we think twice about taking a rushed vaccine? Is it even necessary given the remarkably low death rate?

What Happened: COVID-19 vaccines have been in production for several months now, and clinical trials have been underway in various countries. One experimental vaccine being developed by CanSino Biologics, Inc. of Tianjin, China, has completed phase 1 of human clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccine (adenovirus type-5 Ad5-nCoV) and involved 108 volunteers, ranging in age from 45–60 years old.

Participants were given various levels of dosing, from low to high. 87 (or 81%) of the 108 participants experienced at least one adverse reaction within seven days after receiving the vaccination. Of the 87 who had reactions, 30 were in the low dose group, 30 were in the middle dose group, and 27 were in the high dose group. Overall, 10 of the participants (just under 10%) experienced Grade 3 adverse reactions, most were in the high dose group.

According to researchers conducting the study on the Phase 1 clinical trial for the Ad5-nCoV vaccine:

The most common injection site adverse reaction was pain, which was reported in 58 (54%) vaccine recipients. Pain was reported in 17 (47%) participants in the low dose group, 20 (56%) participants in the middle dose group, and 21 (58%) participants in the high dose group. The most commonly reported systematic adverse reactions overall were fever (50 [46%]), fatigue (47 [44%]), headache (42 [39%]), and muscle pain (18 [17%]). Fever was reported in 15 (42%) participants in the low dose group, 15 (42%) participants in the middle dose group, and 20 (56%) participants in the high dose group. Headache was reported in 14 (39%) participants in the low dose group, 11 (31%) participants in the middle dose group, and 17 (47%) participants in the high dose group. Muscle pain was reported in seven (19%) participants in the low dose group, three (8%) participants in the middle dose group, and eight (22%) participants in the high dose group.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) describes a Grade 3 adverse event as “severe or medically significant but not immediately life-threatening; hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization indicated; disabling; limiting self care” such as “bathing, dressing and undressing, feeding self, using the toilet, taking medications.”

CanSino’s Ad5-n-CoV vaccine uses a chimpanzee adenovirus vector that uses the HEK293 cell lines derived from the tissue of an aborted fetus. The HEK293 human fetal cell line, which was designed, developed and is licensed by Canada’s National Research Council (NRC), is also being used to produce the AZD1222 COVID-19 vaccine developed by the University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute.

Why It Matters: COVID-19 vaccines are being rushed to market, and vaccines that are rushed to market never ave a good safety record. Given that even Moderna’s COVID vaccine also showed negative reactions, people should think twice about opting in for the vaccine, especially given COVID-19 is continuing to prove it is not as dangerous or life-threatening as mainstream media has been making it sound.

While the introduction of a vaccine will mean huge dollars for pharmaceutical companies, like the seasonal flu vaccine, it seems unnecessary and potentially can cause more harm than the good it could do. Vaccines for illnesses similar to COVID-19 often don’t protect high percentages of takers from the illness it attempts to prevent.

The Takeaway: There has been a great deal of discussion regarding the introduction of a vaccine, ID card and mandating medicine in one final push towards deep authoritarian control by members of the societal and financial elite. This includes people like Bill Gates. Is this the big push for total control that has long been talked about and built up to ever since 9/11? Is the promise of contact tracing and ID cards “to keep the world safe” really what this is about? Or does the track record on measures like this prove that it’s never about ‘the virus’ and more so about the control that comes as a result of the measures that stick around long after the virus is gone?

Given millions are asking these very questions, people are awakening to truths that they never would have prior to major events like this taking place. In that sense, COVID-19 and the deceit and lies that have gone along with it have been a catalyst for further collective awakening. An awakening that can push us to re-imagine our world completely, and create one where we can truly thrive.
