All Art/Illustrations by artist Luis Quiles

Too few artists today have the courage to tackle important social commentaries with their art. But Spanish artist Luis Quiles has undoubtedly broken this mould with his series of illustrations that depict some relevant and unfortunate realities of our world today.

Through his art, Quiles challenges a wide range of controversial issues ranging from over-the-counter drug addiction, censorship, and corruption to sexism, violence, child abuse, and, perhaps most pertinent of all, our culture’s social media obsession.

There is something raw and hauntingly telling about the commentaries being expressed through each illustration, perhaps in part because they resonate with such truth. Many of them are difficult to look at, but all of them stand as accurate representations of some of the issues that plague our world today.

Take your time with this one to enjoy these fantastic pieces of art! And lastly, viewer discretion is advised.

The force-feeding of cheap food to the docile and lethargic public.

242

 

With the cost of living continuing to rise at a rapid pace, and in an economy which, especially in the U.S., is pushing more and more people into the lower socio-economic bracket, many families and students are basically being force-fed fast and cheap food as their only financial option. Proper nutrition keeps us running at our optimal cognitive and energetic capacities, while a lack of nutrition keeps a nation lethargic and docile.

 

  The censorship of free thought and the consequences of voicing our opinion.336

In a nation describing itself as “free,” it’s interesting to note how many laws, regulations, and fear programs exist that limit our choices and thoughts. One can get locked away simply for defying their government’s belief systems. I’m curious how long people will continue to let this censorship take place.

 

How female sexuality is used to divert the attention of a hormone-driven population of men.

527

It’s rampant throughout all forms of media today: hyper-sexualized images of women, used to stimulate a testosterone-driven population of men. Not only is this prevalent in the media, but in various aspects of our culture as a whole.

For example, many restaurants or lounges force girls to wear short skirts, heels, and even revealing tops, all to appeal to a specific audience. Female pop stars and celebrities are also often exploited sexually in the mainstream media, marking just another example of the dominating male influences at the top of the ladder.

Generation Notification: the social media crazed population.

720

Social media has undoubtedly changed our way of connecting with one another, but whether or not this has been for the better is debatable by many. Today we see a high percentage of youth and adults literally addicted to their phones, iPads, or laptops. It’s almost beginning to move towards the physical merging of technology and man, where the line between social media reality and the everyday reality is no longer distinct.

There are now multiple social media platforms available for people to get lost in, many of which are great at wasting our time as we aimlessly scroll through a never-ending newsfeed. How will this relationship with social media continue to grow in the coming years? I’m afraid to find out…

 

The innocent casualties of unnecessary war.

817

How anyone could continue to harm completely innocent civilians is something I will never understand. Children growing up around the devastation of war are often subject to the by-product of war arms, i.e., radiation and firearm-induced amputation. Whether one supports the “war on terror” or not, one simply cannot argue the absurdity of killing innocent children in the name of defending one’s own country.

 

The absolute power money holds over the people.

1017

With the way the system is currently set up, it’s almost as if people are intentionally pit against one another like a giant game of survival of the fittest. As the famous line states, “The rich are getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer.” Practically every industry today is fueled by financial gain. People are willing to step on whomever they need to in the name of money.

Most unfortunate of all, we see financial interests literally wiping out the planet, destroying ecosystems and wildlife at an unsustainable pace. How did a fabricated value system come to be more important than the health of our planet? Will mankind wake up to its own insanity before it’s too late?

 

 How professional athletes are used as products.

1415

 

How pharmaceuticals are turning a population into zombies and killing us at a frightening pace.

1517

A Los Angeles Times analysis of 2009 death statistics showed:

  • For the first time ever in the U.S., more people were killed by drugs than motor vehicle accidents
  • 37,485 people died from drugs, a rate fueled by overdoses on prescription pain and anxiety medications, versus 36,284 from traffic accidents
  • Drug fatalities more than doubled among teens and young adults between 2000 and 2008, and more than tripled among people aged 50 to 69

These facts summarize legal prescription drug statistics. An estimated 450,000 preventable medication-related adverse events occur in the U.S. every year. The cost of adverse drug reactions to society is more than $136 billion annually — greater than the total cost of cardiovascular or diabetic care. Looking over records from 1976 to 2006, researchers found 62 million death certificates related to prescription drugs, and almost a quarter-million of these deaths were coded as having occurred in a hospital setting due to medication errors. How is this considered normal?

These pictures do a fantastic job of highlighting many widely-accepted yet absurd facets of our world today. It’s safe to say that Luis Quiles is a brave, artistic genius. To see more of his work, check out his webpage here.

Judge Orders The Dakota Access Pipeline To Be Shut Down

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    On Monday, A U.S. District Court ordered Energy Transfer LP to shut down and empty their pipeline, known as the Dakota Access Pipeline.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we continue to use outdated and unnecessary means for energy production. Why is our economy an oil based economy when it doesn't have to be? Why do we have solutions that never see the light of day?

What Happened: On Monday, A U.S. District Court ordered Energy Transfer LP to shut down and empty their pipeline, known as the Dakota Access Pipeline.  It just so happens to be their largest one, and it also represents a big win for Native American’s and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, as well as citizens from all over the world who have fought the line’s route access through a critical water supply.

It’s amazing how many years have already passed since there was a mass gathering in North Dakota to stop this pipeline. Corporate America brought in the police to try and disperse the gathering. One night, a small plane spraying unknown substances flew over the gathering at night, I know this because I was there, along with CE founder Joe Martino.  There were SWAT teams everywhere. All of this for a peaceful gathering? We spent days covering the story, and all we saw was intimidation, violence, and psychological warfare tactics in order to disperse the crowd so that the company could continue building their pipeline.

This always seems to happen to peaceful protestors.

Corporate America eventually got what they wanted. Many people were thrown in jail, people were injured, all resulting from a peaceful protest. The gathering was shut down and the fight to stop the pipeline went to court, during which time the pipeline was in full operation.

Bloomberg is reporting that the pipeline must be shut down by August 5th.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia said a crucial federal permit for Dakota Access fell too far short of National Environmental Policy Act requirements to allow the pipeline to continue operating while regulators conduct a broader analysis the court ordered in a previous decision. The ruling scraps a critical permit from the Army Corps of Engineers, and requires the pipeline to end its three-year run of delivering oil from North Dakota shale fields to an Illinois oil hub. Judge James E. Boasberg said Dakota Access must shut down the pipeline and empty it of oil by Aug. 5.(source)

We will have to wait and see if The Army Corps and Justice Department intends to appeal the decision.

Why This Matters

This goes to show what we can do when we come together. Despite the fact that it’s taken years, and damage has been done, look what’s happened, it’s been halted once again. That being said, at the time the pipeline was being built and during the period it was moving oil, it was quite clear that citizens around the entire planet were against this. So I ask you, do we live in a democracy? Do citizens really have any influence at all on decision making, or is our consciousness manipulated to accept certain measures, like pipelines, as necessary? Why doesn’t planet Earth come first? Why does it take cutting through so much red ape, and so much time to try and stop such measures? What kind of system have we created for ourselves? One that protects the corporations and punishes the citizenry and mother Earth?

We don’t have to accept this.

The coronavirus is another great example of what we are capable of. Despite the fact that we were forced into lockdown by governments, billions of people, together, still collectively did it. The point is, we can accomplish great things together, as one. Imagine if billions of people around the world decided the world should shut down for one week in order to, clean up our oceans for example.

Why don’t our governments do that?

We can do anything, we have unlimited potential. We are in a time where we are being asked to wake up, come together, re-imagine our reality, discuss it, explore it, build it and use our potential to create a human experience where everybody can thrive, including mother Earth. And yes, it’s possible, we have the solutions and they’ve been available for years. The only issue is human consciousness, and the barriers we’ve built that prevent these solutions from manifesting.

Bill Gates: ‘Certificates For The Vaccinated Will Be Created To Help Facilitate Global Travel’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A few months ago, Bill Gates hinted to the idea that those who aren't vaccinated may not be able to travel.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we really live in a democracy when so many decisions are made without the consent of the majority of the citizenry?

According to Bill Gates,

“Eventually what we’ll have to have is certificates of who’s a recovered person, who’s a vaccinated person […] Because you don’t want people moving around the world where you’ll have some countries that won’t have it under control, sadly. You don’t want to completely block off the ability for people to go there and come back and move around. So eventually there will be this digital immunity proof that will help facilitate the global reopening up.” (source)

He expressed his predictions in an interview (linked above) that took place a couple of months ago. In the interview he also suggested that people should have some sort of digital identification that shows their vaccination status, and that people without this type of “proof” wouldn’t be able to travel.

Whether these intentions are for the coronavirus vaccine or perhaps some other medication down the road, this pandemic is a great example of how close we can come and are coming to mandating ‘medicine.’

It’s no secret that vaccine hesitancy is at all all time high right now, there is a growing hesitancy among scientists and physicians as well, which is why some of them are coming together to support informed consent in a world that continues to grow full of vaccine mandates. This was a sentiment recently expressed at the World Health Organization’s vaccine safety summit. You can read more about that here and access a link to the full conference if interested.

Vaccine hesitancy will no doubt result in a large portion of many populations that do not receive the vaccine. To me, it’s quite clear that for these reasons governments will not, and cannot fully, mandate the vaccine, but when it comes to travel and perhaps other public activities, they may do so if we continue to allow it.

Or perhaps they are still warming people up to the idea of a mandated vaccine? Are mandatory masks in public settings a precursor to a mandatory vaccine in a public setting? 

Why This Matters

It’s important to recognize and acknowledge what happens when we give our power away to government health authorities. Decisions are made for us that are not always agreeable to a large minority, and in some cases sometimes it seems like a majority of the population. When it comes to vaccines, despite the fact that there are many injuries and many safety concerns, many of them are required for children to go to school.

This is why the so many people have been questioning vaccines so deeply. Regardless of what government and media say, it’s not about “pro-vax” or “anti-vax,” it’s simply about looking at the science and acknowledging the fact that vaccines are not a one size fits all product.

For example, according to a MedAlerts search of the FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, as of 2/5/19, the cumulative raw count of adverse events from measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines alone was: 93,929 adverse events, 1,810 disabilities, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 463 deaths. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid out approximately $4 billion to compensate families of vaccine-injured children. As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming considering HHS claims that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

That’s just one of many examples.

Why don’t our federal health regulatory agencies acknowledge the concerns people are having about vaccines instead of simply using ridicule and character assassination? Why is there a campaign to paint those who question vaccine safety as conspiracy theorists?

For example, The Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC), a group of doctors and scientists from around the world who have come together to support informed consent when it comes to mandatory vaccine measures put out some excellent downloadable PDF’s with regards to the MMR vaccine. One of them deals with “what parents need to know about the measles vaccine” and another one presents the information that has them questioning if the MMR vaccine is safer than the measles. They point out that the chances of dying from measles and make many comparisons to the vaccine. You can can read more about that here.

Are these doctors and scientists truly just “conspiracy theorists?”

The Takeaway

There will be a in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it. – Aldous Huxley

Not only is the comment above coming true, many of us seem to enjoy it because our consciousness is suppressed to the point where we feel it’s necessary. With vaccines, and now masks, many people feel that one has a responsibility to follow mandates because we are made to believe that it protects other people. The idea that an unvaccinated child is a danger to a vaccinated child is also very flawed. Sure, if we had vaccines that were 100 percent safe and 100 percent effective we could perhaps achieve herd immunity through a vaccine, but vaccines have been around for decades and we have not yet we still have achieved herd immunity through them.

At the end of the day, people are made to feel like they are uninformed and mistaken for questioning the status quo. Is this the type of world we want to live in? One that seems to be guarded by the ‘ministry of truth’ or, in this case, a digital authoritarian Orwellian ‘fact-checker’ that’s patrolling the internet silencing some of the world’s foremost experts on this topic? One where a view that opposes our government regulatory agencies, one that is backed by evidence, is punished and ridiculed?

What’s really going on here, and why, as a collective, do we accept it? If billions of us can come together and agree to a lockdown, or at least comply to it, then why can’t we come together for all of the other important issues that need our attention? Why do we only do what we are told to do by our governments? Why do we continue to give our power away and hand over our trust to entities that seem to be lacking connection and care? Why do we constantly rely on these entities to take care of our problems for us and make decisions for us?

Today, it’s not about executing the will of the people, it’s about controlling the will of the people and convincing them your actions are justified. This is what Bill Gates, among other very powerful people, seem to be doing right now.

The US Prosecutor Wants Prince Andrew To Speak With The FBI After Ghislaine Maxwell’s Arrest

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    U.S. attorney Audrey Strauss, who is involved in working Ghislane Maxwell's case, welcomes Prince Andrew's co-operation with the FBI.

  • Reflect On:

    Will Prince Andrew be the only high profile person to go down? Could this be a dam that breaks to truly has the majority of the population questioning the character of many people in positions of power? Will this spur conscious self-governance?

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s right hand person, Ghislaine Maxwell was recently arrested on charges connected to Jeffrey Epstein with regards to child sex trafficking and abuse. Now, the acting U.S. attorney Audrey Strauss, said U.S. prosecutors would “welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk to us” during a press conference announcing the charges against Maxwell on Thursday, as many media outlets are now reporting.

“We would like to have the benefit of his statement,” Strauss told reporters. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a survivor of Epstein’s abuse, has claimed he and Maxwell trafficked her to have sex with Prince Andrew three times when she was 17 in 2001.

This isn’t the first time the Royal Family has been implicated in such activity. A member of the Royal family was claimed to be part of a suspected pedophile ring under investigation by the police in the late 1980s, a former Metropolitan police officer has said.  The officer was told by a detective sergeant that the investigation into the ring, which was also claimed to include an MP, was shut down for national security reasons. “I was in a car with two other vice squad officers … The detective sergeant said he had just had a major child abuse investigation shut down by the CPS regarding a royal and an MP,” he told the Sunday Mirror newspaper. “He did not mention names, but he said the CPS had said it was not in the public’s interest because it ‘could destabilise national security’.”

In fact, there are many examples from many different countries within Europe that correlate with elite level pedophilia and not only sexual abuse of children, but physical abuse as well as the murder of them. Multiple Royal Families have been implicated, as well as Vatican Personnel, high ranking global leaders, politicians and more.

This is not to say all are involved, but from the outside looking in, it seems a significant amount are.

If you want to dive deeper into the topic and see more examples, you can refer to this article I published a few months ago.

We have also interviewed a survivor of elite pedophile rings like the one Epstein and Maxwell ran. Her name is Anneke Lucas and you can watch her full testimony here on CETV.

You can also watch a recent documentary called Out of Shadows that explores this topic in detail on CETV as well.

If you want to read more about Epstein ad Maxwell, you can do that here.

Why This Is Important

Could Maxwell’s arrest bring down more high profile people? It could, and that’s why it’s important. With this, the collective would really see how far this goes and we would have the opportunity to ask ourselves why high profile people are involved, and why there is such a big cover up. Further, we could explore why we support these people making major decisions for the human race with regards to political policy that governs all aspects of life, from health, to education and more.

If politicians ad high profile individuals are in fact involved in this, which survivors of their rings commonly claim, we are giving our power over to people who are in a state where they lack empathy and connection, and are capable to doing thigs the general public would never dream of doing to others. This is why more people are starting to really explore this topic, because it changes how we go about giving our power to people like this.

The Takeaway

Humanity is in a process of ‘Breaking the Illusion’ we have come to accept about our reality. We have been living from a collective story that states we elect good people into government, and they act in our best interest. This categorically is not the case, and part of our collective awakening to creating solutions that can make our world thrive is waking up from this illusion we have chosen to accept.

People are beginning to learn en masse that high profile figures are involved in such acts like extreme occult rituals, sex trafficking and pedophilia, and they are beginning to wonder why.
