A groundswell of Native American activists has temporarily shut down construction on a new oil pipeline worth $3.8 billion that would carry about half a million barrels of crude oil per day from the Bakken oil field to Illinois, linking with other pipelines to transport the oil to Gulf Coast refineries and terminals.
Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirschmeier explained in a press conference that “construction of the Dakota Access pipeline south of Mandan [N.D.] has been stopped — for safety reasons.”
The protest occurred at a spot where the pipeline would pass beneath the Missouri River, just upstream from the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, a community of 8,500 situated on the Missouri River in North and South Dakota.
Now, North Dakota’s homeland security director has ordered the removal of state-owned trailers and water tanks from the Dakota Access Pipeline protest campsite Monday due to reports of unlawful activity, including the presence of pipe bombs and guns. Over the last week, 28 protesters were arrested, including Standing Rock Chairman Dave Archambault, who wants protesters to comply with the law.
“The position of our tribe is clear — There’s no place for threats, violence or criminal activity,” Arhcambault explained to reporters. “That is simply not our way.”
But Homeland Security Division Director Greg Wilz believes there is cause for concern. “Based on the scenario down there, we don’t believe that equipment is secure,” he said.
Tribal members from across the nation have streamed to the Standing Rock Sioux protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, with thousands coming to the peaceful “prayer camps” in recent days, prompting state officials on Monday to remove the demonstrators’ drinking water supply.
Standing Rock spokesman Steven Sitting Bear hinted that the protest is only just beginning, as he’s received “notifications from tribes all over the country that have caravans in route, so it’s continuing to grow.”
And in Washington D.C., high-profile activists and supporters are rallying outside the U.S. District Court, where members of the Standing Rock Sioux will argue that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers granted Energy Transfer Corporation permission for the pipeline without tribal consent.
In July, the environmental group Earthjustice filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, seeking an injunction against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who signed off on the pipeline’s construction. “The construction and operation of the pipeline, as authorized by the Corps, threatens the Tribe’s environmental and economic well-being, and would damage and destroy sites of great historic, religious, and cultural significance to the Tribe,” the lawsuit notes.
According to the tribe, the pipeline puts the sacred waters of the Missouri River at great risk.
The demonstrators held signs during a rally last Thursday in Bismarck that read, “No Dakota Access Pipeline” and “ReZpect our Water,” while they chanted, “We can’t drink oil. Keep it in the soil.”
Climate campaigner and 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben supports the protest, even penning an op-ed on Monday titled “After 525 years, it’s time to actually listen to Native Americans.”
He believes that in recent years, it has been Indigenous people like the Standing Rock Sioux who “have been the vanguard of the movement to slow down climate change.” He also implied that stopping the pipeline process would send a message that, after 525 years, someone actually paid attention to the good sense the Native Americans have had from the start.
He also said:
One has the ominous sense of grim history about to be reenacted at Standing Rock. North Dakota authorities—who are in essence a subsidiary of the fossil fuel industry—have insisted that the Sioux are violent, that they have “pipe bombs.” There are rumors about calling in the National Guard. The possibility for renewed tragedy is very real.
But the possibility for a new outcome is there as well. The Army Corps of Engineers might back off. The president might decide, as he did with Keystone, that this pipeline would “exacerbate” climate change and hence should be reviewed more carefully. We might, after five centuries, actually listen to the only people who’ve ever successfully inhabited this continent for the long term.
As for the U.S. District Court hearing on whether a preliminary injunction should be issued against the protesters, it has now been rescheduled from Thursday to Sept. 8, though a restraining order against the demonstrators has also been extended to that time.
From the Dakota Access Pipeline Resistance: (contact information in the link)
We, the Indigenous defenders of the land and water within the traditional treaty lands of the Oceti Sakowin, makean urgent appeal to the international community to assist us in facing a human rights crisis. Dakota Access is trying to put a crude oil pipeline under the Missouri River. This is a dire threat to the drinking water and future generations of the Oceti Sakowin who have lived here for generations.
For the past few days there has been unidentified air-craft circling the camp and we’ve been surrounded by federal and state police. We believe the elders, women and children present at this peaceful assembly could be under threat and in danger of imminent harm and possible violence from state and federal police (including Homeland Security) as well as private security. The Governor of North Dakota has issued a state of emergency and closed roads and restricted freedom of movement. We are unarmed. We do not have cell phone service or wifi. We are unable to communicate and document for the world community this peaceful assembly.
We are committed to peaceful defense of our water and our territory.
We urgently seek national and international human rights observers to come. We need United Nations’ rapporteurs, NGOs (especially Indigneous NGOs), and Churches, to be aware of the rapidly escalating dangers facing this peaceful gathering. Please come and bear witness.

Confirmed: High-Dose Vitamin C Has Successfully Treated 50 Moderate to Severe COVID-19 Patients
- The Facts:
Medicine in Drug Discovery, of Elsevier, a major scientific publishing house, published an article of early and high-dose IVC in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. Intravenous vitamin C has helped moderate to severe covid-19 patients recover.
- Reflect On:
Why is something that's true been ridiculed within the mainstream, who claims there is no basis at all for vitamin C treatment for coronavirus?
An article published by LiveScience, a mainstream science website, states that “Vitamin C is extremely unlikely to help people fight off the new coronavirus.” This is the narrative that’s been portrayed by multiple mainstream media outlets since the beginning of the new coronavirus outbreak. In fact, they’ve gone as far as labelling the suggestion that vitamin c could help, as ‘”fake news” in some cases. This is one of multiple examples of ‘fact checkers,’ who have been given tremendous amounts of power with the ability to severely limit the social media distribution of certain media organizations, abusing their power.
Here at Collective Evolution, we’ve been subjected to immoral and unethical ‘fact checking’ that has greatly reduced our ability to sustain ourselves. We are even fearful of our Facebook Page being deleted, so we are encouraging all those who want to continue to receive and be able to find our content to sign up for our email list. This is very important if you want to continue to follow our work in case Facebook deletes our social media platform(s).
As far as Vitamin C treatment for Covid-19 goes, regardless of what some media outlets are claiming, Medicine in Drug Discovery, of Elsevier, a major scientific publishing house, recently published an article on early and high-dose IVC in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. The article was written by Dr. Richard Cheng, MD, PhD, a US board-certified anti-aging specialist, from Shanghai, China. Dr. Cheng served in the United States Army as a commissioned officer (Major) and an Army physician. While in the Army, Dr. Cheng served in various positions including Chief and Medical Director of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. It’s safe to say that he’s probably a much more trusted source on the topic given his background and recent peer-reviewed publication about it than an article claiming that this is false information.
In his article, he states the following:
High-dose intravenous VC has also been successfully used in the treatment of 50 moderate to severe COVID-19 patients in China. The doses used varied between 2 g and 10 g per day, given over a period of 8–10 h. Additional VC bolus may be required among patients in critical conditions. The oxygenation index was improving in real time and all the patients eventually cured and were discharged. In fact, high-dose VC has been clinically used for several decades and a recent NIH expert panel document states clearly that this regimen (1.5 g/kg body weight) is safe and without major adverse events.
His article was published on the 26th of March, but prior to that, Dr. Cheng was providing updates with regards to multiple clinical trials that have been underway in China for treating covid-19 patients with intravenous vitamin C. The US National Library of Medicine posted the information about their clinical trials on their website. The title of one of the trials is “Vitamin C Infusion for the Treatment of Severe 2019-nCoV Infected Pneumonia.” The sponsor is ZhiYong Peng, and the responsible party is Zhongnan Hospital in Wuhan University (ZNWU).
Dr. Cheng has been updating everyone via his YouTube channel about vitamin C treatment cases out of Chin prior to the publication of this article. We have been covering his updates as he is in direct contact with this treatment and isn’t simply an armchair scientist at the moment. We feel in this time this is a very important detail as he is seeing and hearing results first hand, not simply theoretically.
Cheng also had a message for the ‘fact checkers’ as posted in the description of his latest Youtube video.
I was made aware that FB Fact Check claims “Shanghai did not officially recommend high-dose IVC for the treatment of Covid-19” (left on the above photo). Let me make it clear that not only Shanghai, but also Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, another major city in China, publicly endorsed high-dose IVC for the treatment of Covid-19. Those who does Fact Check, please be more careful.
In one of his latest videos he also commends New York hospitals for becoming aware of the information regarding vitamin c, but claims they are not using high enough doses.
According to a recent article by the New York Post, who has also picked up on the topic,
Seriously sick coronavirus patients in New York state’s largest hospital system are being given massive doses of vitamin C — based on promising reports that it’s helped people in hard-hit China, The Post has learned. Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive-care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C. Identical amounts of the powerful antioxidant are then readministered three or four times a day, he said. Each dose is more than 16 times the National Institutes of Health’s daily recommended dietary allowance of vitamin C, which is just 90 milligrams for adult men and 75 milligrams for adult women. The regimen is based on experimental treatments administered to people with the coronavirus in Shanghai, China, Weber said.
How To Take Vitamin C For The Everyday Person
I have turned to the following credentialled individuals to make the statements in this article. They have also pointed to numerous studies which I will list below. These individuals are Damien Downing, who has a bachelor’s in medicine and surgery, Andrew W. Saul, Ph.D., Gert Schuitemaker, Ph.D., and Richard Z. Cheng, MD, Ph.D., International Vitamin C China Epidemic Medical Support Team Leader. – Joe Martino, Collective Evolution Founder

For anyone looking for a high-quality vitamin C, we have been using and recommending liposomal vitamin C. There are many brands out there. We are using this one from PuraThrive as it is very high quality and has an incredible clinically proven absorption rate.
It’s truly a heads scratcher as to win intravenous vitamin C treatment for sick patients isn’t really being explored, nor mentioned at all by mainstream media networks. Is this really a surprise?
Even the pharmaceutical companies have been able to purchase congress. They’re the largest lobbying entity in Washington D.C.. They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressman and senators combined. They give twice to congress what the next largest lobbying entity is, which is oil and gas… Imagine the power they exercise over both republicans and democrats. They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (source)
Ultimately, when it comes to sickness, we must ask ourselves where government allegiance lies. It’s a for-profit model, first and foremost. That’s not to say there aren’t many great things about our health care system
Donald Trump Signs The “Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2020″ Into Law
- The Facts:
President Donald Trump signed into law a pair of bills designed to boost wireless and broadband networks: the Secure 5G and Beyond Act and the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act.
- Reflect On:
Why has the president not addressed or even acknowledge the concerns being made by many scientists and doctors about the potential health hazards that may be associated with 5G technology?
5G wireless technology and the implementation of it is one of many examples of how we truly don’t live in a democracy, but rather, a ‘corporatocracy.’ We are living in a world where powerful corporations seem to dictate governmental policy, and heavily influence various politicians as well as the president of the United States. We’ve seen this for a number of years now, and some presidents have warned about the power that exists which seeks to control all. President Dwight Eisenhower referred to it as the “military industrial complex,” president Theodore Roosevelt referenced it by stating that, “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.” Today, Donald Trump refers to it as the “deep state.”
Sadly, right now, we seem to be living in the illusion of democracy, we believe that the people direct most of what happens, but perceived unethical and immoral implementations and measures taken by governments today usually go against the will of the people, or they simply go through and get approved due to the fact that these measures receive little or no attention at all and many people are simply unaware of the concerns associated with them.
5G is no different in this sense, and it’s one of many great examples. Paul Bischoff, a tech journalist and privacy advocate, recently compiled data regarding telecom’s political contributions to influence policies that benefit their industry, it’s quite revealing and may shed some insight as to why the concerns of 5G are constantly ignored and not even acknowledged by our ‘leaders.’
In the case of 5G wireless technology, a number of scientists, journalists and activists have voiced their concern regarding the implementation of such technology. A few months ago, a number of doctors, scientists and activists have sent a National 5G Resolution letter to President Trump, requesting a moratorium on 5G technology until the potential hazards for human health have been appropriately investigated.
Dr. Martin L. Pall, PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University wrote a report whose title says it all: “5G: Great risk for EU, U.S. and International Health! Compelling Evidence for Eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by Electromagnetic Field(EMF) Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them.” In his report he bluntly stated the following:
“Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world.”
And he’s clearly not alone in his opinion. The Environmental Health Trust Points out with regards to the letter sent to President Trump,
The 5G Resolution was developed during the first three-day US medical conference fully dedicated to this topic, Electromagnetic Fields Conference on Diagnosis and Treatment, which convened in Scotts Valley, California in September. (Watch videos from the conference here.)
Unfortunately, President Trump recently signed into law two bills designed to boost wireless and broadband networks: the Secure 5G and Beyond Act and the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act. The first requires the president to develop a strategy to secure and protect 5G technology, while the second is meant to improve the accuracy of maps detailing where broadband is and isn’t available in the US.
Under the 5G Act, the president must consult with Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense and other agencies and submit to Congress a plan for rolling out secure 5G, both within and outside the US, within 180 days.
The next generation of wireless technology, 5G brings increased networks speeds and network responsiveness and promises to help bring about real-time mobile applications for technologies like driverless cars and virtual reality. The nation’s biggest wireless companies, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, began rolling out 5G service last year.
The Broadband DATA Act, meanwhile, is expected to change how and what information the FCC collects about broadband access to ensure that the federal government has more granular information about where broadband can be found.
Where I live, in Ontario Canada, 5G infrastructure is set to begin in the Toronto to Montreal corridor. Without this implementation, daily human exposure to microwave radiation is already much higher than a trillion times higher than it was before cell phones.
Again, president Trump has not acknowledged the concerns being raised by the citizenry regarding 5G technology.
A Few Examples of Concern
Dr. Anthony Miller, Professor Emeritus with the University of Toronto, and adviser to the International Agency for Research on Cancer said: “Many scientists worldwide now believe that radiofrequency radiation should be elevated to a Class One human carcinogen, on the same list as Cigarettes, X-Rays, and Asbestos.”
Doctors have advised the province that increased health care costs can be avoided if the government takes precautions to protect the public from exposure to wireless 5G technology. You can get a transcript of the event and more where Dr. Miller spoke at Canadians for Safe Technology.
“My clinic is already assessing patients from across Ontario who are sensitive to microwave radiation from their wireless devices including cell phones, Wi-Fi, and an increasing number of smart appliances,” said Dr. Riina Bray, Medical Director of the Environmental Health Clinic at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto. “We expect wireless 5G to add to this burden.” – Miler.
Frank Clegg Former President Of Microsoft Canada has released an insider’s view educational video regarding the health and safety concerns of 5G and wireless technologies. You can access that here.
This stuff is indeed hitting the mainstream, one recent example of mainstream awareness is an article published in the blog section of Scientific American titled “We Have No Reason to Believe 5G is Safe” written by Joel M. Moskowitz. It’s great to see such a publication at least mention the health concerns of this type of technology, it shows how awareness continues to be created.
Yet there is a completely different side, one that claims 5g technology is completely safe and poses absolutely no risk to human health. That being said, wireless companies continue to warn shareholders, but not people, that EMFs are not insurable.
If you’re interested in learning more about the concerns being raised with 5g wireless technology and what you can do to protect yourself, this resources page via the Environmental Health Trust is a great place to start
Proof: Fact Checkers Are Misleading You
- The Facts:
We share multiple instances where Collective Evolution has been 'fact-checked' and yet the fact-checkers were wrong yet haven't admitted so.
- Reflect On:
Is it time we end the paradigm of "us vs them?" Are these instances happening to expand our mind to what is truly going on in our world and inspire the need for change?
Online censorship has a new disguise: fact-checking. But this article is also going to bring another reflection into view because it’s important we move away from the stories of “us vs them,” and this age-old paradigm of disconnection, and instead awaken a new awareness – connection and empathy. It’s in this that I believe we will truly find clarity and solutions to shift the type of thinking and consciousness we are being asked to shift at this time.
Are all of these ‘fact-checks’ cases of censorship? Or are we also seeing and coming to understand a state of thinking/consciousness that is coming to the surface for us to change? The religion and paradigm of modern science is on display, and we have a chance to see the importance of taking a step and questioning our beliefs, but will we?
A big part of this story is going to point at one company called Health Feedback. They are a division of Science Feedback, and believe they are activating real science and scientists to ‘fact-check’ false claims on the internet. But there is a real challenge with what they are doing, and I strongly feel they are misleading the public on many important issues.
Before I continue, I want to recognize that mistakes happen on the internet, and correcting them is important. I also recognize that there are many websites out there who knowingly create and post false stories to get traffic and make money. At CE, we do not fall into that category, and we have relied on solid research, science, whistleblowers, and experts to formulate our information for 11 years. It has been difficult to operate in the field we are in because simply covering some of the topics we do automatically makes people think they are untrue as there are hundreds of other sites out there covering the same topic poorly and with a sensationalist tone. We don’t and have never done that here.
Further, in the video below I will discuss one of the main editors at HealthFeedback, Flora Teoh. I do not believe she is a bad person, nor do I feel it is useful to attack her online or have anyone in our audience do that to her. It’s actually this sort of ‘us vs them’ approach that I believe gets us collectively into these messes and is also what drives so much fact-checking to be false.
The reality seems to be with this topic, and this is my observation, that either fact-checkers are purposefully rating some content false because they are told and pressured to do so, or that they truly have a narrow scope of information and research and thus have already settled in their beliefs even when evidence arises that should question these beliefs.
This is exactly the challenge we face today with the modern religion of ‘science.’ According to many modern scientists, no longer is the scientific method used to better understand our material and non-material world, but instead, we already KNOW so much and have arrived at consensus’ that are merely beliefs disguised as truths.
It’s this paradigm, mindset, and frame of consciousness that I feel could be the biggest contributing factor as to why, not just fact-checkers, but people in general have such a hard time expanding their minds – they identify with their beliefs and get stuck.
But it’s in that that we see the solution – a shift in consciousness. A conscious choice to question your beliefs, ideas, and what you think to be true. This is why I developed the CE Protocol, a series of concepts designed to help anyone shift their thinking, consciousness and way of being towards a new paradigm of openness, connection, love and authenticity.
Without further adieu, I share with you the major missteps taken by fact-checkers thus far that we have seen, and show you email threads and techniques they use that mislead the public – either purposefully or accidentally through ignorance.
It is my intention to allow people an inside look at what goes on with fact-checking, and encourage a new approach to how we look at information and how we relate to one another? Does this bring up anger in you? If so, why? How can you shift to stay present and peaceful, while taking effective action, when you observe this?
