As we move through 2015 and into 2016, the medical industry continues to draw more attention for something that should be making national headlines everywhere. It’s the manipulation of science, and for decades it’s infiltrated medical literature that physicians rely on to treat patients.
A new study recently published in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology evaluated 185 meta-analyses on anti-depressant medication, and found that one third of them were written by pharmaceutical industry employees. This is significant because most professionals who rely on scientific research prefer reading a meta-analysis instead of a series of papers on one topic. Previously it was thought that pharmaceutical companies do not fund meta-analysis papers, but:
“We knew that the industry would fund studies to promote its products, but it’s very different to fund meta-analyses,” which “have traditionally been a bulwark of evidence-based medicine…It’s really amazing that there is such a massive influx of influence in this field.” – John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at Stanford University School of Medicine and co-author of the study (source)
Last month, an independent review found that the commonly prescribed antidepressant drug Paxil (paroxetine) is not safe for teenagers, despite the fact that a large amount of literature already previously suggested this. The 2001 drug trial that took place, funded by GlaxoSmithKline (also maker of the Gardasil Vaccine), found that these drugs were completely safe, and used that ‘science’ to market Paxil as safe for teenagers.
Ioannidis is also the author of the most widely accessed article in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS) entitled Why Most Published Research Findings Are False. In the report, he stated that most current published research findings are false.” And this was more than 10 years ago.
“If one looks at the manufacturer studies, they’re often not designed to detect adverse events….Obviously your not going to find what you’re not looking for…” – Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, senior postdoctoral fellow in UBC’s Faculty of Medicine (source)
The new study found that almost 80 percent of meta-analyses had some sort of industry tie, either through sponsorship, which was defined as direct industry funding of the study, or conflicts of interest where any situation in which one or more authors were either industry employees or independent researchers receiving any type of industry support, these include speaking fees, research grants and things of that nature.
This is very troubling, because:
“There’s a certain pecking order of papers…Meta-analyses are at the top of the evidence pyramid…Industry influence is just massive. What’s really new is the level of attention people are now paying to it.” – Erick Turner, a professor of psychiatry at Oregon Health & Science University (source)
It can be hard to think about these things, to think that doctors are looking at literature saying these drugs help, when in fact a large majority of them are causing harm. It’s no surprise that thousands of people die every year from prescription drug use. Sure, we are only talking about antidepressants with this study, but the scope of drugs and different diseases they supposedly treat is quite large when it comes to this type of fraudulent activity.
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet (source)
A drug may stop someones pain, it may lower ones blood pressure, but they are also causing a tremendous amount of harm in other areas that are not published and purposefully concealed. There are better ways to treat these diseases, what has the world of medicine become?
Scientific American reports that Meta-analyses by industry employees were 22 times less likely to have negative statements about a drug than those run by unaffiliated researchers. The rate of bias in the results is similar to a 2006 study examining industry impact on clinical trials of psychiatric medications, which found that industry-sponsored trials reported favorable outcomes 78 per cent of the time, compared with 48 percent in independently funded trials.
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” – (source)(source) Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal
American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and others investigated Financial Ties between the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders (DSM) panel members and the pharmaceutical industry. They found that, of the 170 DSM panel members 95 (56%) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry. One hundred percent of the members of the panels on ‘mood disorders’ and ‘schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders’ had financial ties to drug companies. The connections are especially strong in those diagnostic areas where drugs are the first line of treatment for mental disorders. In the next edition of the manual, it’s the same thing.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine” Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and long time Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source)
Ex-Google Engineer Fears AI ‘Killer Robots’ Could Perpetrate Unintended Mass Atrocities
- The Facts:
An ex-Google software engineer warns of the industrial development of AI in terms of the creation of 'killer robots,' which would have autonomy in deciding who to kill without the safeguard of human intervention.
- Reflect On:
Can we see that events such as the potential creation of 'killer robots' ultimately stem from the projection of our collective consciousness, in a way that we as awakened individuals are empowered to change course?
We have entered a time in our history in which advanced technologies based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) may become increasingly prone to unintended actions that threaten the safety and autonomy of human beings. And those of us who believe in the safety and autonomy of human beings–trust me, most at the top of the current power pyramid don’t need to become increasingly aware and vigilant of this growing threat.
The arguments for and against the unfettered development of AI and its integration into military capabilities are as follows: those in favor of the development of AI simply point to the increased efficiency and accuracy bestowed by AI applications. However, their unrestrained zeal tends to be based on a rather naive (or feigned) trust in government, corporations and military intelligence to police themselves to ensure that AI is not unleashed into the world in any way that is harmful to human individuals. The other side of the argument grounds its fundamental mistrust in current AI development on the well-documented notion that in fact our current corporate, governmental and military leaders each operate based on their own narrow agenda that give little regard for the safety and autonomy of human beings.
Nobody is arguing against the development of Artificial Intelligence as such, for application in ways that will clearly and incontestably benefit humanity. However, as always, the big money seems to be made available in support of WAR, of one group of humans having dominance and supremacy over another, rather than for applications that will benefit all of humanity and actually help to foster peace on the planet.
Ex-Google Engineer Speaks Out
Perhaps there is no way to fully prevent militaries from doing research into AI enhancements to their applications. However there seems to be one clear line of demarcation that many feel should not be crossed: giving AI programs sole authority to determine if a given individual or group of human beings should be killed.
Software engineer Laura Nolan resigned from Google last year in protest after being sent to work in 2017 on Project Maven, a project used to dramatically enhance US military drone technology, and put much more of the onus on AI to determine who and what should be bombed or shot at. She felt that her work would push forward a dangerous capability. She could see that the ability to convert military drones, for instance into autonomous non-human guided weapons, “is just a software problem these days and one that can be relatively easily solved.”
Through the protestations and resignations of brave people like Laura Nolan, Google allowed the Project Maven contract to lapse in March this year after more than 3,000 of its employees signed a petition in protest against the company’s involvement. It should be indicative to all of us that these big corporate giants do not make ethical decisions on their own, since they are fundamentally amoral, and continue to require concerned human beings to speak up and take actions in order for humanity’s interests to be considered.
Since resigning, Nolan has continued her activism amidst news about the development of “killer robots,” AI machines designed to operate autonomously on the battlefield with the capacity to kill large swaths of enemy combatants. She has called for all AI killing machines not operated by humans to be banned. She joined the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots and has briefed UN diplomats in New York and Geneva over the dangers posed by autonomous weapons.
Unlike drones, which are controlled by military teams often thousands of miles away from where the flying weapon is being deployed, Nolan said killer robots have the potential to do “calamitous things that they were not originally programmed for”:
The likelihood of a disaster is in proportion to how many of these machines will be in a particular area at once. What you are looking at are possible atrocities and unlawful killings even under laws of warfare, especially if hundreds or thousands of these machines are deployed.
There could be large-scale accidents because these things will start to behave in unexpected ways. Which is why any advanced weapons systems should be subject to meaningful human control, otherwise they have to be banned because they are far too unpredictable and dangerous. (source)
Pledge From AI Researchers?
Certainly we see mainstream headlines like ‘Top AI researchers say they won’t make killer robots‘ where pledges have reportedly been made:
More than 2,600 AI researchers and engineers have signed a pledge to never create autonomous killer robots, published today by the Future of Life Institute. Signees include Elon Musk, Alphabet’s DeepMind co-founders Mustafa Suleyman, Demis Hassabis, and Shane Legg, as well as Google’s Jeff Dean, and the University of Montreal’s Yoshua Bengio.
However this does not mean that we can desert our posts and trust that corporations that could make billions of dollars from contracts to advance such automated applications will decline to pursue them if they thought they could get away with it. Indeed, it is the watchful eyes and powerful words of conscious people that has so far prevented this from occurring.
Events in our world such as the emergence of autonomous ‘killer robots’ are ominous and foreboding, but we need not shrink away from this kind of news in a state of fear and resignation. If we can see, in the bigger picture, that it is ultimately a projection of our collective consciousness that brings these events into being, then we can take these events to be a trigger for each of us to determine exactly what kind of world we want to live in going forward, and have that determination clearly reflected in our thoughts, words, and actions. In this way, we participate in the larger awakening process and help to move humanity forward in the transition to a world of greater peace and harmony.
US Navy Confirms UFOs Are Real Using Two Videos of Mysterious Objects
- The Facts:
The US Navy has acknowledged footage showing multiple UFOs that was released a couple of years ago by the To The Stars Academy. They've recently confirmed that the videos are indeed real.
- Reflect On:
Why is all of this mainstream UFO disclosure happening when we've had years of secrecy? Is the mainstream establishment trying to control the narrative? Where are they going with this?
First of all, we don’t need government and military agencies to know that UFOs are real. Thousands of whistleblowers with verified credentials, as well as millions of pages of declassified documents have been released over the past several years that make one thing quite clear, UFOs are real, and there is a long history of military encounters.
We’re talking about objects that are tracked on radar, photographed, and video taped that are seen traveling at speeds and performing maneuvers that no known air-craft can mimic. These objects are constantly seen defying our known laws of aerodynamics. I’ve written about multiple instances, there are thousands. For example, here’s an article about an incident with the Chilean Air Force, they received a radar return of a UFO equal to the size of ten or more aircraft carriers. They had visual confirmation as well.
There are objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy – Lord Admiral Hill Norton, Former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee)
General Carlos Cavero told the world in 1979, “everything” has been “in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world.” On a global scale, “the nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon” and there is “an international exchange of data.” (source)
A lot of mainstream disclosure has happened within the past couple of years, and the topic really attracted a lot of attention from those who were previously unaware of the reality of this phenomenon when the To The Stars Academy, headed by former rock star Tom Delonge, and his team of ex high ranking government and Department of Defence personnel obtained multiple videos from the Pentagon of these objects and released them for public viewing.
One of the biggest mouthpieces for “the establishment,” The New York Times, admitted something that the establishment, or facets of it, have been concealing for years; UFOs are real. The Times broke the story about the secret Pentagon program to study UFOs where the videos in this article came from, but any UFO researcher knows these programs are more in-depth, expensive, and expansive than anything that’s described here. These programs are vast, very expensive and go much deeper than a simple Pentagon program to study UFOs.
Not long ago, A Michigan State University economist teamed up with multiple researchers, including Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development and they found trillions of unaccounted for dollars missing from housing & D.O.D. Based on my research, these programs are going towards the study of UFOs, extraterrestrials as well as an already established secret space program. Fitts makes that point as well. Everything in this area is simply deemed “classified,” receiving absolutely no oversight from Congress. They’re referred to as deep black projects that in 2008 ex-Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer described as projects that the “Commander in Chief has no idea about.”
A 1997 US Senate report described these “special access programs” as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” (source).
The Navy Acknowledgment
In the latest news with regards to mainstream UFO disclosure, the US Navy has acknowledged the videos of UFOs that were released by TTSA. The objects seen in the three clips of declassified military footage are “unidentified aerial phenomena,” Navy spokesperson Joe Gradisher confirmed to CNN. (source)
In the footage below from 2004, sensors lock on a target as it flies before it accelerates out of the left side of the frame, too quickly for the sensors to relocate it.
What is Mainstream UFO Disclosure All About? Can We Trust It?
TTSA has done nothing but bring awareness to the fact that these objects are real. They’ve stayed away from the extraterrestrial question, but CEO Tom Delonge has always been quite open about the fact that some of these objects are indeed extraterrestrial, and that this is known.
The chief of the disclosed program at the Pentagon, and now a member of TTSA also stated on CNN that he believes we’re not alone, and that this phenomenon is evidence of that. (source)
As former Princeton physics professor and NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary once said, “there is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time.” (source)
A lot of people within the community are pointing towards the fact that government and mainstream media has been nothing but deceptive to us. This is very true, so why should we believe what they put out with regards to UFOs?
The truth is, it’s quite clear that there has been a long campaign of disinformation. In fact, there has been “an official campaign of ridicule and secrecy” with this subject (First director of the CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, NY Times). Many people have lost their lives and governments, or factions within the government and those who sit above them, have done their best to cover up this topic. It’s been covered up for many reasons, perhaps because of the new energy technology that’s involved with this subject, and the fact that the disclosure of the fact that some of these objects are not from this planet really leaves no aspect of humanity untouched.
It has huge implications and would change many things. But now, it’s all being disclosed, which is confusing people.
There are multiple theories out there, one of them is that the that the global elite are preparing for a supposed false flag alien invasion. They would use this the same way they use terrorism, to heighten national security, take more of our rights away, and actually have an excuse to weaponize space. To do this they would promote a “threat” narrative, and that this is what some of these objects represent.
Another theory is simply that they are not in charge, and that it’s simply time to disclose this reality to the human population, slowly but surely.
Another theory is that they want to simply control the narrative with this topic. The global elite are clever, and by disclosing what was and is becoming obvious to the population they then have the power of “what we say is the truth.” Furthermore, disclosing the reality officially could be used to continue its secrecy. By disclosing that UFOs are real and that “this is all we know and there is still much to find out” would be a truth within a lie. Having studied this topic for a number of years, what is known goes deep into extraterrestrials, extra dimensional beings, reverse engineering of craft and much more. It’s quite clear that a lot more is known than the just simple reality of UFOs, which represents the tip of the ice berg.
Are we seeing an effort by the global elite to simply control the narrative of what is and what isn’t? Do they want to take disclosure into their own hands and tell the people about it, in their own controlled way rather than having the lid blow off of everything?
At the end of the day, UFO disclosure within the mainstream is a positive thing. That being said, we must always exercise caution and critical thinking as, most likely, the mainstream wants to control the narrative. There is a lot more credible information in the form of leaks, whistleblowers, books, and documents that go far beyond what the mainstream will ever tell us. The more the public wakes up to this reality, the more they must realize that just because something is presented by the mainstream, does not mean that it’s the be all and end all of what is known.
With all of this being said, I also believe there is still a lot of disinformation out there within the UFO community.
There is a massive shift in consciousness happening on our planet right now. We are curious, we are asking questions and we are starting to realize that there is a lot more to the story here on planet Earth that what we’ve been told or have been made to believe.
One of those realizations is that we are not alone, and that we never have been. Truth is inevitable, it will be discovered by us, not given to us. It’s time to think for ourselves.
Another Alleged Epstein & Prince Andrew Victim Comes Forward Implicating Joe Biden & “Many Others”
- The Facts:
Recent events such as the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein seem to be causing more victims of sex trafficking who had stayed silent for so long to come out and speak.
- Reflect On:
Can we create a safe and open space for alleged victims of sex trafficking to speak out with confidence, and trust that our growing discernment will ensure that the truth rises to the top?
Members of the Awakening Community often wonder, aside from our personal work being done to look inside and heal, forgive, and raise our vibration, if there is a need for external actions in the world that will help move us forward in our collective journey and foster a better and more harmonious world.
Might I suggest that at this precise moment in our history, it is incumbent upon us to come together as a community to provide a safe and sacred space to those who have been victimized by the massive, coordinated global pedophilia and trafficking rings whose full scope and influence on our world we are just starting to fathom. And that means listening to what they have to say, and aspiring to use their testimony to gain a better understanding of our world and what has been happening under the cover of darkness and privilege, difficult as this may be for many of us to accept.
Women and men who have for decades lived silently in fear of being further harmed or even killed if they spoke out, now see a ray of hope in the recent convictions of members of the NXIVM cult and the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein. There is now a sense that the fundamental complicity or at least the willful ignorance about these rings at the highest levels of global law enforcement is changing, and that many of the good people in these organizations are now being empowered to investigate and prosecute such crimes. It has previously been said to me that officers wishing to pursue leads into human trafficking crimes were often dissuaded from further action and told, ‘That’s not what the taxpayers are paying you to do.’
I know of victims who are not ready to come out in public, either because they are not far enough along in their healing journey, or they still cannot fully believe that government, law enforcement, and the judiciary are now on their side. When we consider how much we have uncovered about the far-reaching complicity of powerful institutions to silence victims and protect high-level perpetrators, there is justification for these feelings.
For those who are coming out of hiding and providing testimony, heightening our powers of discernment is critical to the process. We will not be creating a safe space if we simply believe anything we hear from anybody, for there are sure to be attempts at disinformation and manipulation for ulterior motives. At the same time, we must withhold snap judgments, and temper the application of our pet conspiracy theories so that we can focus on allowing each person to feel and be heard.
Our discernment will require us to take each testimony word by word, case by case, and ask ourselves about the motivation behind it, if the facts line up and there is consistency, and whether or not there seems to be a hidden agenda. The testimony of Christine Blasey-Ford and her allegations of attempted rape against Brett Kavanaugh in his Supreme Court nomination hearings serve as an example in which red flags were lifting up at every turn, especially in the way mainstream media unequivocally pronounced her to be credible and honest every step of the way. Her testimony could clearly be seen as having a political agenda behind it.
The Testimony Of Jessica Collins
By and large, most cases will be more subtle. One person who has recently come out with a video claiming to be a victim of Jeffrey Epstein and [Prince] Andrew Windsor certainly seems worthy of our attention. Although she does not claim to be a victim of child trafficking (she was first abducted as a student at the Catholic University of America, after she went for what she thought was a legitimate job interview), the testimony of Jessica Collins is compelling. She put a link to the video below multiple times on Twitter on September 3rd:
A look into some earlier tweets and other information reveals that Jessica’s 18-year old daughter died of Opioids in 2017, which Jessica does not believe was a suicide. In a tweet on September 3rd, she discloses that only because she believes her daughter was murdered is she speaking out. And she herself does not believe that the Department of Justice and Law Enforcement are truly attempting to prosecute these crimes at this time:
I was raped by Washington DC politicians. They murdered my daughter. That is why I am speaking out. Joe Biden, John McCain and many others are involved. They allow me to speak for bc they know Americans will not believe me. https://t.co/zkklOkf41u
— JLCollins (@MidNiteMJ) September 4, 2019
There is a lot to sift through in the testimony of Jessica Collins. I won’t go over it here but would refer you to this Before It’s News article to examine some of the more salacious claims. My purpose here is to pass on this video to our readers to share and evaluate for themselves, based on the following request made by Jessica in the video itself:
My name is Jessica Collins. I live in Virginia. Today is September 3rd, 2019. If anything happens to me it’s because this information is true and I have a lot more information about who I was trafficked to and the government people who are in the White House today.
If you could redistribute this video please save it and redistribute it. If anything happens to me at least I have this out. I have been threatened. My car was disabled by a government employee when the Jeffrey Epstein news broke.
I have been without a vehicle for 40 days. I don’t know what else to say.
Please save this video. Please redistribute. Please try and spread it. There is no way that this is going to get out there in the media. Must we the American people do the work?
The government is involved and I was trafficked for nearly 17 years. Please try to help by redistributing this, tweeting it, talking about it. I do everything that I can. Thank you for listening. Together we can get to the bottom of this and hold the criminals accountable.
Jessica Collins’ last tweet was on September 6th. There don’t seem to be any communications from her since then. Let us pray that she is safe and finds a way to tell her whole story.
We have to allow everyone who comes forward as a victim of sex trafficking the chance to speak until they have been fully heard. We must have confidence that the truth will ultimately rise to the top and shine so brightly that attempts at dark deception and manipulation, clever as they may be, will no longer prevail.
