In an isolated rural area of a prairie along the banks of the Missouri River in the state of North Dakota, a line has been drawn in the sand (or in this case, the water). This line represents the fundamental difference between the paradigm of the industrialized and the paradigm of the caretakers of the earth. For the past months, the two mindsets have clashed on land, air, and in the water.
Indigenous Nations Unite To Protect The Earth
Founded by LaDonna Bravebull Allard in April of 2016, what started as a small camp at a centre of cultural preservation and spiritual resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline has become a centre point of cultural renewal for the Oceti Sakowin, commonly known as the Lakota/Dakota Nation, and many other tribal nations. Over the past several months, the camp has transformed into a gathering place for over 300 Indigenous nations from the Americas and around the world. They have come to share in their struggles against the destruction of their bio-regions by industrial fossil fuel extraction. Peace agreements and unity compacts between Indigenous nations have been formed and sealed with sacred ceremony.
Non-native allies have also been called to support the camp and to stand as partners for the protection of the natural world and future generations. Since its founding, the camp and its environmental protection resolve has grown into an international movement. To date, the camp fluctuates between 1000 and 3000 people at any time, with millions of people around the world supporting from home.
The Sacred Stone Camp was originated to be a place of spiritual renewal, a place to pray and to protect the earth and the waters. The mantra of the camp is called out to all who can hear, “Mni Wiconi,”— “Water is Life.” Indigenous people say they are not protestors, but rather, “Water Protectors.”
The Truth Behind The Police Brutality
On the other side of the line is the Dakota Access Pipeline, its security forces, and the militarized police. The Dakota Access Pipeline is the latest attempt at creating pipeline transportation infrastructure to pump crude oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Texas refineries. Then, it would be shipped out and sold on the international market. This private cooperate venture has repeatedly used unethical methods and manipulated laws to achieve its goals.
They have enacted eminent domain on private landowners, supported by local and state government, even though this project doesn’t meet the qualifications of eminent domain. They disregarded and dismissed tribal governments in the planning process before construction began. They willfully destroyed areas of cultural and historic significance without allowing full and proper assessment. They have hired contract security who used attack dogs on unarmed men, women, and children. They have collaborated with state and local law enforcement to violently attack anyone who stands against their interest. They have not once reached out to peacefully navigate this conflict, choosing instead the route of force and violence.
Conflicts and tensions have peaked during the past weeks as the pipeline construction approached the Missouri River and the Sacred Stone Camp. Water Protectors set up a front-line protest camp directly in the path of the pipeline after President Obama’s call for the Dakota Access Pipeline to voluntarily halt construction near the river went unheeded. On October 27th, multiple police agencies in riot gear and armed with heavy military vehicles violently forced the protectors out of the front-line camp. The conflict between militarized police and Water Protectors has continued and is now located on the shores of a tributary of the Missouri River.
This ongoing struggle located in the middle of the vast and sparsely populated Great Plains has become a convergence of two alternate stories of humanity. On one side of the line, there’s the Indigenous peoples and their allies whose mindset and hearts are in intimate relationship with the nature. They believe that which supports all life to be the most sacred. Their motivation is life and for the future generations. On the other side of the line is the industrialized mindset, which includes tearing a trench in the earth to pipe liquid death across the land and through the waters. They are protected by misguided police clothed in riot gear, guarded by paid mercenaries — all in the name of profit and the continuation of a dangerous paradigm.
The actions taken by the Dakota Access Pipeline and the State of North Dakota against the Water Protectors has become the edge of the fight for the survival of the human relationship with nature.
The Oceti Sakowin call the pipeline the “Black Snake.” This title speaks to more than just the colour of the crude oil which it may transport; it speaks to tribal prophecy of a time when a black snake will come upon the land to poison and kill life. To many people, the Dakota Access Pipeline is the latest attempt of the Black Snake trying to find a foothold. Legitimate fears that the pipeline will eventually rupture and spill its venom upon the land and in the waters are at the heart of the protector camp.
The fight against the Black Snake is revealing the power of fossil fuels to corrupt. The Black Snake is not just a pipeline that will pump toxic crude oil over 1000 miles across the land and water, potentially contaminating the environment that provides food and water for millions. The pipeline is only a manifestation of a much greater poison. The true poison of the Black Snake is much more pervasive, elusive, and has seeped into almost all of humanity. This Black Snake is the insatiable energy of contention, greed, violence, and deception.
This Black Snake is as old as western history. It has infected the people as they forgot or were ripped away from their original relationship with the earth. It is like a parasite that enters the belly of humans and starts oozing the toxins of fear into its hosts; the snake feeds the deepest fears of the human psyche. Fear and a sense of lack fill its victims, strengthening the snake. Eventually, fear is not enough and violent action is called for. People begin to dominate one another. This Black Snake has been living with people for generations now.
This paradigm was once contained in the Middle East, in a land that has been ravaged by continuous wars for the past 5,000 years. The current state of the Middle East is the product of this snake reaping its harvest. Over the last thousand years, the snake’s power has grown and the infection has spread. It was brought to the Americas in the belly of the Conquistadors and the colonizers. The snake now is as big as the world and has the earth in its strangle hold. It is squeezing the life out of the earth and all of its inhabitants.
Over the past months I have vigilantly followed the unfolding events, watching the Black Snake and the Water Protectors. I have supported the Sacred Stone camp from afar with constant prayer and financial contributions. On October 28th, a fire was awakened in me and I knew that now is the time to go to the Sacred Stone Camp. Within a few hours I talked to my wife and confirmed my plane tickets.
What lit the match was seeing the violent arrest of two of the medic team while treating the patients during the events October 27th. As a healthcare professional and someone who has worked 17 years in emergency medicine, I can tell you that police violently arresting medics is beyond outrageous. People providing medical treatment in any conflict, and not engaging in combat, is considered sacred. Respect and protection of medical personnel is even written into the Geneva Convention:
Article 9 of the 1906 Geneva Convention provides:
The personnel charged exclusively with the removal, transportation, and treatment of the sick and wounded, as well as with the administration of sanitary formations and establishments … shall be respected and protected under all circumstances. If they fall into the hands of the enemy they shall not be considered as prisoners of war.
Of all people to know this, the police should know this best. Medics are not there to take sides. They are there to provide help and hope to all people in need. Perhaps it was a slip in ethics and a temporary disorientation of the moral compass of the police? Are they so truly lost in the violence of protecting the cooperate state and unreasonable laws that they can’t see their own humanity? Have they forgotten that they too will one day be injured or sick, and will call upon the help of medics?
It was while watching the violent arrest of my fellow medical professional that I knew the Black Snake was corrupting even the most sacred of our human connections. It was time to go and help.
As an ally to the Indigenous people, it was important to be in a supportive role. In my former career, I was a paramedic/EMT. I was trained in Critical Incident Stress management and Incident Command Systems. With this background in mind, I heard the call from the Water Protectors at the Standing Rock Camp. Helping the Water Protectors on the front line is something that I can do. Something that I can tell my grandchildren I did to make their lives better.

Apple Will Start Tracking Your Calls & Emails To Assign You A ‘Trust Score’
- The Facts:
Apple iPhone users will now have their data on phones calls, texts and emails track by Apple so they can be given a 'trust score.' They claim this data collection will help prevent fraud.
- Reflect On:
Is this not just behavioural and user data collection disguised as 'trying to protect you?' Is this data going to be used to sell you more products? Or maybe sold to other companies? Do we have ANY reason to trust Apple?
We live on a great planet, and there are a lot of incredible people here. Let’s not forget that. At the same time, there are some serious concerns that are rising and need to be brought to light regarding the people that basically control our planet, this powerful conglomerate that sit atop the financial pyramid control everything, including politics. This group is often called the Deep State or cabal.
This is something that can be seen given many examples, one basic example is the power that corporate America has on government and how decisions are really made. It’s not the people deciding what happens, and what happens is hardly even ever disclosed to the public, and if it is, it’s hardly done so in a truthful manner.
We’re living in an age of mass surveillance and data connection, one which the global elite claims is for our own protection in the “fight against terrorism,” a fight and a war that’s been based on lies and completely fabricated, as emphasized, shown and explained by many politicians, academicians and researchers around the world. It’s an important narrative to share, given the fact that it’s one mainstream media refuses to touch.
If the reasons for mass surveillance are not actually for our own safety, and truly for ‘national security’ reasons, then what is it for? Why are they doing it, and why are they doing it in such a secretive, sneaky, and powerful manner?
“At least 80% of fibre optic cables globally go via the US, this is no accident and allows the US to view all communication coming in. At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US. The NSA lies about what it stores. The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control.” – William Binney, a former high ranking intelligence official with the National Security Agency (NSA). He is one of the highest placed intelligence officials to ever blow the whistle
Bribery is also used, multiple politicians have explained how ‘men in dark suits,’ perhaps representatives of the Deep State that runs corporate America, and imposes its will on a global scale. When a president is elected into office, if they are elected, and not “selected” as Rosevelt once said, then they are most likely confronted with every piece of dirt that the Deep State has on them.
There are many things to consider, but ultimately, the agenda of those who control global politics remains intact no matter who is president, and those that become president are usually just puppets and ‘partners’ with this powerful group of international people.
All of this is important to mention whenever it comes to any type of surveillance or data collection activity. At lower levels of the spectrum, it’s also being used for profit, and our data, online habits, phone conversations and more are collected and sold to various corporations. There are even corporations teaming up with pharmaceutical companies to sell data related to your DNA. You can read more about that here.
We all know about data collection and Facebook, and other social media platforms…
Apple’s New Policy
To help identify and prevent fraud, information about how you use your device, including the approximate number of phone calls or emails you send and receive, will be used to compute a device trust score when you attempt a purchase. The submissions are designed so Apple cannot learn the real values on your device. The scores are stored for a fixed time on our servers.
All we get from these corporations are justifications for taking such action, and we buy into it. At the end of the day, we have a choice, and we can choose to support these products, or opt out for some better options.
The explanation seems too vague, how does knowing how many phone calls or emails one sends combat fraud? Is this just a complete lie for something else that’s really going on? The truth is, transparency in our world, especially our corporate world, has gone completely fell down the drain. Big corporations have become a political tool. Take a look at Facebook, which basically became a tool of the intelligence agencies, and agencies like DARPA used to collect massive amounts of data and spy on people.
Now, it’s being used as a tool to censor information and shut down a narrative that doesn’t agree with ‘them.
Facebook also convinced users and businesses to bring all of their people and practices over to Facebook to create a community, only to see that community ripped out from under them as Facebook essentially said “You can’t reach your community anymore, pay us to reach them.” Yet Facebook profited billions off the data of your people. Good old bait and switch.
Are these corporations acting in a way that protects us? Or are we simply customers that represent billions in profit? Why do we continue to support corporations that these companies and what they do if we have other options? While we don’t yet know what this new data collection will be used for, can we not learn from the recent Facebook data scandals?
Weekly Q&A: Trump’s Role, Censorship, CETV, Reader Love

“The Consistency Is Mind Boggling” – University Professor On Alien Abductions
- The Facts:
Dr. David M Jacobs, a recently retired Professor and historian, shares the fact that those who claim to have been abducted, and there are millions, share extreme consistency with their stories, and come back with proof.
- Reflect On:
Why is this not addressed? As Jacob's points out, if it's not true, then we have the greatest discovery of all time with regards to neurology.
We know that the phenomenon is very, very widespread around the world. People think that this is an American phenomenon, it is not. I’ve worked with people from Africa, and Asia, and Latin-America, and Europe and so forth… All say the same thing all around the world, it does not matter where they’re from. People often ask me whether there’s any consistency in abduction accounts, the consistency is mind-boggling.
The quote above comes from Dr. David M. Jacobs, a recently retired professor of History at Temple University, from the video below. He’s one of many academics who’ve been studying the ‘alien abduction’ phenomenon for a long time. We’re talking about full-out investigations and actual case work. Himself and practically every other researcher in this field would tell you that yes, the consistency is indeed jaw-dropping. People who claim to have been abducted by intelligent extraterrestrials, or come in contact with beings, and there are millions of them all over the world, all share remarkably consistent stories.
I work with people who have MD’s, or psychiatrists, psychologists… people who are university professors, and people who have never been able to hold a job…and everybody in-between. The vast material that they talk about has never been in the public domain, without consistency there is no phenomenon, and it is the consistency that keeps coming back…People are physically missing from their normal environments when they are abducted, people come back with unusual scars on their body, fully formed scars that weren’t there before.
It’s important to make a distinction here. There are all sorts of contacts happening. There are forced abductions, we call these people abductees, then there are simply contactees. Contactees don’t experience any type of forced abduction or strange procedures that are performed on them like abductees, there is also a wealth of data showing that a lot of people have friendly, informative, and mysterious type of contact experiences as well, and there are a range of beings (which also show up with consistency in multiple experiencer accounts) that have also been reported with consistency, including human looking ones. Along with these experiences come telepathic messages, in many cases appear to warn of future destruction unless human rapidly evolves and, grows up, so to speak.
Many abductees also report a sense of remorse and empathy within some of these forced abductions, others do not.
Here’s a great example, a case that involves more than 60 school children in Zimbabwe.
Dr. Jacobs goes on to state, regarding abductions, a very interesting point
Now, let us suppose it is not happening, all those things still remain, and yet it’s not happening, there is no such thing as the abduction phenomenon. If that is the case, we have found the most important thing ever in the history of neurology, brain function, cognition… All these people are saying the same thing at their risk, this is not going to bring applause to them, that they say they’ve been abducted by aliens from outer space. High functioning people say thisnknowing full well it could destroy their careers, and they say this around the world…And it’s not happening, then what?
The mainstream world has and is currently addressing the UFO topic, but the talk of extraterrestrial visitation as one possible explanation for some of these UFO visitations has still been left out of the equation. For the latest updates on that, you can refer to this article:
All of these people, again, are not crazy. They are normal human beings, many of them who have or had no interest in the phenomenon prior. So, again, either something very important in the history of mental health is going on, or the exact opposite, and if we actually take time to examine the evidence, the answer becomes quite clear.
Some of what people report as UFOs are extraterrestrial (ET) vehicles. Some of those extraterrestrial vehicles actually have ET crews, and some of those ET crews catch and release humans.” — Dr. Don Donderi, a retired McGill University Professor of 40 years in the Department of Psychology (source)
Below is a brief account of one example that pertains to abductions, again, something different from regular contactee experience as mentioned earlier in the article. There is footage of Dr. Jacobs here as well.
Are We Being Prepared For Contact?
Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel – Roscoe Hiellenkoetter (source)
Now, with the emergence of mainstream UFO disclosure, although not really addressing the extraterrestrial question, these topics are slowly creeping into the mainstream. It appears that the process of ridicule which existed for so long, via mainstream media, movies, popular television shows and more, seems to have turned into a process of disclosure.
The topic touches all areas of humanity, including metaphysics, spirituality, not just science, technology and questions in those areas. It represents an evolution in all areas, most importantly an evolution in consciousness. It really forces us to question ourselves, and help us understand who we really are as well.
Humanity is at a crossroads, and our hesitance to accept certain realities these days is drifting, and acceptance is coming in. Our perception of reality is shifting, and that alone is creating action around the world to bring about something that can’t really be put into words.
Perhaps this is becoming more relevant at this because there is a message here for humanity, and the experiences of contactees and abductees could perhaps help us decipher that message if they haven’t already. The common theme is something we all internally know in our hearts, the golden rule, and the caretaking of our planet and life upon it.
We as humanity have an enormous amount of potential to create an experience where this type of existence can happen, where we can be free from the chains of economic slavery and allowed to grow and advance as a species. Our destiny is no doubt in the stars.
Recently we interviewed Susan Manewich about her research into this space as well. One of the many profound truths she shared was that of all the contactees they have studied, there is a strikingly similar message shared by all. Check it out below
