When Adam Koessler’s 2 year old daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma – a very serious abdomen cancer – he sought to do whatever he could to get her well again.

As a concerned parent that wanted to find the least harmful way to treat his daughter’s illness, Adam came across studies such as these, showing very positive results with treating her type of cancer with an alternative therapy – Cannabis oil.

In Australia – where Adam and his daughter reside – the use of medicinal marijuana is still currently illegal.

However, this didn’t stop Adam from trying to treat her with cannabis oil.

Arrested For Administering Medical Grade Cannabis Oil

Adam was arrested at the start of this year, January 2nd, for “allegedly administering medicinal cannabis oil” to his 2 year old daughter.  He was also charged with ”possession of a dangerous drug.” He faces up to 20 years in jail if found guilty.

His daughter has now been removed from his care (he is not in a relationship with the girl’s mother, they split up several years ago) and is allowed to visit her in the Lady Cilento Children’s hospital in South Brisbane, Australia. She is currently being treated with aggressive chemotherapy.

Before his daughter’s diagnosis Adam was allowed to see her four days a week as per a court order issued back in 2013.

He is now only allowed to visit her with restricted access, and he is not being informed about her treatment and progress – or, for that matter, about anything significant in relation to her care.

The patent (US6630507) is titled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants” and was awarded to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in October 2003.

Adam has sought to organize a registered business to supply organic meals for her to have during her stay in hospital but the hospital will not approve of the delivery of the meals.

After speaking to other parents in the same hospital, Adam was told that they are allowed to bring whatever they like to their own children. Some are even bringing food from the very same organic business that Adam wanted to use. It seems Adam is being incredibly unfairly treated.

A Parent Doesn’t Even Have A Right To Feed Their Kids Healthy Food?

Most people will agree that it’s not okay to keep a parent away from a child during hospital stays and treatments such as chemotherapy.  The trauma that can occur from this alone is incredibly stressful and damaging – particularly when the child is only two years old.

To not allow a parent to give healthier food (even airplane food tends to be far better than what is served in our hospitals!) is truly disgusting.

What’s happening to Adam is another example of how our human rights – and rights as parents – are being taken away from us.

Adam’s story is sadly not at all rare.

The government and medical system can “own” our children and do as they will when they decide to step in, and when they do, a parent loses all rights.

If you are a parent, can you even begin to imagine what that would be like? Wouldn’t it be your worst nightmare, not only to have a child diagnosed with cancer, but to not be able to decide what is given in the treatment of it, and then you are not allowed to see your child when you wish, or be in charge of what they eat in order to get well again.

Medical Use Of Cannabis Is Legal In Many Countries

The infuriating thing about this case is that medical use of cannabis is now legal in quite a few countries and jurisdictions. Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Israel, Netherlands, Spain, and some states in the US (such as Colorado), although it is illegal under US federal law. More states in the USA are set to make Cannabis legal for medicinal use. The use of cannabis oil alongside standard cancer treatment also has it’s benefits, pain and nausea are said to be far less due to the soothing effects of Cannabis.

Whilst Adam only wanted the best for his daughter and has done intense research into Cannabis for cancer treatment, Adam is being treated like a criminal. The laws in Australia clearly need to change.

As you can see from above, the US Government holds a patent for using cannabis oil as a medicine.  So it’s madness that people are vilified for using it when Governments know it works and clearly have plans for its use in the future.  Many people feel that they will only release it as a ‘drug’ when pharmaceutical companies can profit from it.

Let’s Help This Father

Adam’s story has been in the Australian media where he has a lot of support from some members of the Australian public who are petitioning that this law regarding the use of medical cannabis must be changed. Adam is now in desperate need of funding to help him defend his case in court. I therefore hope that we can get behind this and donate, even if its just $10.

There is a go fund me campaign to help Adam.  I really urge you to donate.  I personally always think when I see these sorts of cases that someone would help me if I were in the same position.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
