12 Stories You Missed While The Media Was Telling You Russia Hacked The Election

Published

on

You’ve seen the headlines claiming that Russia hacked the DNC emails, sent them to Wikileaks, and ultimately swayed the vote that determined Donald Trump would be the next U.S. President. Since you’re reading this article, you likely know that this was a lie, as Julian Assange set the record straight by publicly stating that Russia was not responsible for the DNC hacks and revealing that they came from the inside.

Instead of taking responsibility for Clinton and her team’s corrupt actions, government organizations and the media immediately placed the blame elsewhere. However, did you ever stop and think why the U.S. was so quick to wrongly accuse Russia? Why were so many stories published on a claim that was in no way verified, going against the very definition of good journalism? The simple answer: to distract you from what was actually going on within the U.S. government and the world as a whole.

Here’s What You Missed While Being Distracted by Fake News on Russian Hackers:

The U.S. military is sending another 2,300 soldiers to Afghanistan

As a final goodbye, President Obama signed off on sending another 2,300 U.S. soldiers to Afghanistan. The decision was made as a supposed attempt to halt the Taliban from further territorial gains, as the government claimed the troops will “advise and assist.” The original decision to invade Afghanistan was an act fuelled by false flag terrorism (not that war can ever be justified), so to send even more troops to Afghanistan serves as further proof that the U.S. government does not have the people’s best interests at heart.

Kurdish-led operation to liberate Raqqa saved thousands of people

In a Sputnik Turkey interview with the Commander of the Kurdish YPJ female battalion, Cihan Sekh Ehmed, Ehmed explained that the most recent operation that commenced on December 10 saved thousands of civilians. The first stage of this operation began on November 5 and since then approximately 60 villages have been liberated. It’s interesting that Aleppo gained so much traction, yet this beautiful story of liberation was never heard on mainstream news.

Over 600 people were saved from an extreme terrorist group in Nigeria

Mainstream media seems to love the topic of terrorism, as it’s used to blame many wrongdoings or hide government corruption. So, why didn’t they share the story of 450 children being freed from Boko Haram, an extremist group in Northeastern Nigeria? Between December 7 and 14, the Nigerian army managed to rescue 69 men, 180 women, 227 male children, and 129 female children.

Violence over a pipeline being built in Mexico that affects local Indigenous community

Sounds awfully familiar, right? We’ve been so focused on fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline, and for good reason, but we can’t forget the other pipelines being built that affect other Indigenous groups. A pipeline being constructed in northern Mexico is provoking controversy as it involves a local Yaqui Indigenous community. Crossing directly through their territory, the pipeline unequivocally vioates their rights. The resistance created an uproar amongst pipeline supporters and on October 21, the supporters attacked the Indigenous tribe, killing one, injuring many, and damaging the property.

The Pentagon covered up $125 billion in bureaucratic waste

For a country that holds fairly high taxes, $125 billion seems like a lot of money to use toward administrative waste. The Pentagon actually attempted to bury an internal study that exposed this, fearing that if Congress discovered it, they might choose to decrease the defence budget.

Women in China were “required to send nude pictures as collateral to obtain loans”

Hundreds of photos and videos of naked women were recently leaked online, as these photos were used as collateral for women to obtain loans through online lending platform Jiedaibao, which was launched by JD Capital in 2015. More than 160 young women were affected by this event (source).

The U.S. halted arms sales to Saudi Arabia

The U.S. announced that they would stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia due to the extreme violence and increasing number of deaths in Yemen. This was clearly a PR stunt, as the U.S. plans to continue to support Morocco, Qatar, and the U.A.E., which all play significant roles in the Saudi-led coalition.

Green movement leaders confined in Iran for six years are still waiting for trial

After publicly questioning the result of Iran’s 2009 election, Mehdi Karroubi, former presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi, and Green Movement leader Zahra Rahnavard have been confined for the past six years in extrajudicial house arrest. They are still waiting for their trial.

Millions of children are malnourished in Yemen, seeking urgent help

The United Nations statement reads, “Nearly 2.2 million children in Yemen are acutely malnourished and require urgent care. At least 462,000 children suffer from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM), a drastic increase of almost 200 per cent since 2014.” What’s worse, the U.S. is in part to blame for this, as this is as a result of the war fuelled by the Saudis, who purchase arms from the U.S.

Director of the CIA warns Trump about “bringing back waterboarding”

Amongst many of the strange promises Trump made for if he were to become president was that he would bring back the use of torture. CIA Director John Brennan addressed some of these promises in a BBC interview, explaining that CIA officers wouldn’t support this, especially because they “took some body blows” as a result of engaging in this practice in the past. Although the U.S. is no stranger to using violence to achieve their goals, to bring back torture would no doubt be a mistake.

UN General Assembly expressed grave concern on health risks from depleted uranium

151 countries within the UN General Assembly voted in favour of a new resolution on depleted uranium weapons and the associated health risks. The document highlights specific health concerns regarding the states and communities affected by depleted uranium weapons. The document also explains the significant technical and financial barriers imposed as a result of depleted uranium contamination.

Monsanto shareholders approved a $66 billion acquisition by Bayer

The deal to truly monopolize the seed industry: If it closes, it will represent the birth of the largest seed and agriculture chemical company in the world. This company would also control more than a quarter of the combined world market for seeds and pesticides. This raises numerous red flags because it would mean more GMOs and pesticides, leading to further environmental degradation and health risks (source).

A fake U.S. Embassy in Ghana issued travel documents for 10 years

The U.S. State Department recently addressed a fake U.S. Embassy operating in Ghana for a decade. The fake Embassy was supposedly owned by Ghanian and Turkish organized crime rings and sold “fraudulently obtained, legitimate US visas” as well as counterfeit visas and false identification documents including bank records, education records, birth certificates and more.

Why This Is Important

It can be truly difficult to determine what is fake news and what’s not, so it’s crucial that we critically think about what the media is telling us. Learning to discern and FEEL information out for yourself is crucial during this time.

If a media outlet can benefit from publishing certain content, then they could hold a bias. For instance, many news outlets would benefit from blaming Russia for the DNC email hacks because of their ties to Hillary Clinton and the U.S. government. This isn’t the first time mainstream news has lied to us, and it won’t be the last.

Don’t be afraid to challenge mainstream ideas and dig deeper. You have the resources to discover the truth, even if that’s through your own intuition. When you’re reading an article, ask yourself, “Does this information resonate with me?” If not, then that could be a sign that there’s more to the story than what’s being presented.

Vancouver Council Votes Against Mandatory Mask Mandate: They’re Not Required

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Vancouver, Canada will not have a required mask policy in civic facilities, and instead will simply recommend that people wear them.

  • Reflect On:

    Should governments recommend what they feel we should do and present the science instead of forcing certain measures on the population that many people and health professionals clearly disagree with?

What Happened: The city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada will not mandate masks inside city buildings and will “strongly encourage” people to wear them instead. This is a bold move as many cities across the globe have mandatory mask measures in place.

The proposal by Counc. Sarah Kirby-Yung, which would have required masks inside city buildings, was opposed by more than a dozen speakers who pleaded with the city council to vote against it.

“Please consider our forefathers fought for our freedom, and if we release that choice, it’s the first step towards a dictatorship,” said one speaker according to City News. “Masks are used as weapons and they have certainly been used as weapons against me and others to silence and marginalize us and it’s not fair.”

According to Coun. Christine Boyle, public health experts encourage wearing masks, but a mandatory policy is not needed.

Positive Association Found Amongst COVID Deaths & Flu Shot Rates Worldwide In Elderly

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently published paper has found a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and influenza vaccination rates in elderly people worldwide.

  • Reflect On:

    Why does vaccine hesitancy continue to grow worldwide? What's going on? What information/factors are contributing to this hesitancy?

What Happened: A recently published study in PeerJ  by Christian Wehenkel, a Professor at Universidad Juárez del Estado de Durango in Mexico, has found a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and influenza vaccination rates in elderly people worldwide.

According to the study, “The results showed a positive association between COVID-19 deaths and IVR (influenza vaccination rate) of people ≥65 years-old. There is a significant increase in COVID-19 deaths from eastern to western regions in the world. Further exploration is needed to explain these findings, and additional work on this line of research may lead to prevention of deaths associated with COVID-19.”

To determine this association, data sets from 39 countries with more than half a million people were analyzed.

The study was published on October 1st, and two weeks later a note from the publisher appeared atop the paper emphasizing that correlation does not equal causation, and that this paper “should not be taken to suggest that receiving the influenza vaccination results in an increased risk of death for an individual with COVID-19 as there may be confounding factors at play.”

The paper provides evidence from others which have recently been published that ponder if the flu shot could increase ones chance of contracting and dying from COVID-19.

For example, this study published in April of 2020, reported a negative correlation between influenza vaccination rates (IVRs) and COVID-19 related mortality and morbidity. Marín-Hernández, Schwartz & Nixon (2020) also showed epidemiological evidence of an association between higher influenza vaccine uptake by elderly people and lower percentage of COVID-19 deaths in Italy, which directly contradicts the author’s own findings and suggests that the flu shot may help prevent COVID-19 related deaths.

He goes on to mention another study:

In a study analyzing 92,664 clinically and molecularly confirmed COVID-19 cases in Brazil, Fink et al. (2020) reported that patients who received a recent flu vaccine experienced on average 17% lower odds of death. Moreover, Pawlowski et al. (2020) analyzed the immunization records of 137,037 individuals who tested positive in a SARS-CoV-2 PCR. They found that polio, Hemophilus influenzae type-B, measles-mumps-rubella, varicella, pneumococcal conjugate (PCV13), geriatric flu, and hepatitis A/hepatitis B (HepA-HepB) vaccines, which had been administered in the past 1, 2, and 5 years, were associated with decreased SARS-CoV-2 infection rates.

So, its important to mention that correlations between the flu vaccine have also found that it may decrease ones chance of deaths from COVID-19.

But are there studies that have shown an increased chance of death or contracting other respiratory viruses as a result of getting the flu shot? Yes.

That’s also discussed in the paper. For example, he mentions a paper published in 2018:

In a study with 6,120 subjects, Wolff (2020) reported that influenza vaccination was significantly associated with a higher risk of some other respiratory diseases, due to virus interference. In a specific examination of non-influenza viruses, the odds of coronavirus infection (but not the COVID-19 virus) in vaccinated individuals were significantly higher, when compared to unvaccinated individuals (odds ratio = 1.36).

The study above found the flu shot to increase the risk of other coronaviruses among those who had been vaccinated for influenza by 36 percent. The study was conducted prior to COVID-19, so it’s not included and only applies to pre-existing coronaviruses. The study also found an even higher chance of contracting human metapneumovirus amongst those who had received the flu shot.

Below are some more studies regarding the flu shot and viral infections that hint to the same idea.

  • 2018 CDC study (Rikin et al 2018) found that flu shots increase the risk of non-flu acute respiratory illnesses (ARIs), including coronavirus, in children.
  • A 2011 Australian study (Kelly et al 2011) found that flu shots doubled the risk for non-flu viral lung infections.
  • 2012 Hong Kong study (Cowling et al 2012) found that flu shots increase the risk for non-flu respiratory infections by 4.4 times.
  • 2017 study (Mawson et al 2017) found vaccinated children were 5.9 times more likely to suffer pneumonia than their unvaccinated peers.

Why This Is Important: We live in an age where vaccinations are heavily marketed. We’ve seen this with the flu shot time and time again and we are also living in an age where a push for more mandated vaccines seems to be growing.

Dr. Peter Doshi is an associate editor at The BMJ (British Medical Journal) and also an assistant professor of pharmaceutical health services research at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. He published a paper in The BMJ titled “Influenza: Marketing Vaccines By Marketing Disease.”  In it,  he points out that the CDC pledges “to base all public health decisions on the highest quality of scientific data, openly and objectively derived,” and how this isn’t the case when it comes to the flu vaccine and its marketing. He stresses that “the vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and that “the threat of influenza seems to be overstated.”

This is a touchy subject that dives into medical ethics and the connections that big pharmaceutical companies have with our federal health regulatory agencies and health associations. Vaccines are a multi billion dollar industry.

At a recent World Health Organization conference on vaccine safety, it was expressed that vaccine hesitancy is growing at quite a fast pace, especially among doctors who are now becoming hesitant to recommend certain vaccines on the schedule. You can read more about that and find links to the conference here.

We have to ask ourselves, why is this happening? Is it because people and professionals are becoming aware of certain information that warrants the freedom of choice? Should freedom of choice with regards to what we put in our body always remain? Are we really protecting the “herd” by taking these actions?

In a 2014 analysis in the Oregon Law Review by New York University (NYU) legal scholars Mary Holland and Chase E. Zachary (who also has a Princeton-conferred doctorate in chemistry), the authors show that 60 years of compulsory vaccine policies “have not attained herd immunity for any childhood disease.” It is time, they suggest, to cast aside coercion in favor of voluntary choice.

When it comes to the flu shot, I put more information and science as to why so many people seem to refuse it, in this article if interested.

The University of California is currently being sued for mandating the flu shot for all staff, faculty and students. A judge has prevented them from doing so as a result until a decision has been made. You can read more about that here.

In South Korea, 48 people have now died after receiving the flu shot this season causing a lot of controversy. You can read more about that here.

The Takeaway: There are many concerns with vaccines, and vaccine injury is one of them. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid more than $4 billion to families of vaccine injured children. A 2010 HHS pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) found that 1 in every 39 vaccines causes injury, a shocking comparison to the claims from the CDC of 1 in every million.

Should these statistics alone warrant the freedom of choice? Should the government have the ability to force us into measures, or would it simply be better for them to present the science, make recommendations and urge people to follow them? When the citizenry is forced and coerced into certain actions, sometimes under the guise of good-will, there always seems to be a tremendous amount of uproar and people who disagree. Why are these people silenced? Why are they censored? Why are they ridiculed? Why don’t independent health organizations receive the same voice and reach that government and state “owned” or organizations do? What’s going on here? Do we really live in a free, open and transparent world or are we simply subjected to massive amounts of perception manipulation?

When it come to the flu shot there is plenty of information on both sides of the coin that point to its effectiveness, and on the other hand there is information that points to the complete opposite. When something is not 100 percent clear, freedom of choice in all places should always remain, in my opinion.

Some South Korean Doctors & Politicians Call To Stop Flu Shots After 48 People Die

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The number of South Koreans who have died after getting flu shots has risen to 48, but health authorities in South Korea have found no link between the vaccine and the deaths.

  • Reflect On:

    Is the flu shot as safe as it's marketed to be?

What Happened: It’s that time of year and flu shot programs are rolling out across the globe. The number of South Koreans who have died after getting the flu shot has now risen to 48 and some South Korean doctors and politicians have called to stop flu shots as a result, according to Reuters. The Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) has decided not to stop the program, and that flu vaccines would continue to be given and will reduce the chance of having simultaneous epidemics in the era of COVID-19.

Health authorities in South Korea have explained that they’ve found no direct link between these deaths and the shots. KDCA Director Jeong Eun-kyung said, “After reviewing death cases so far, it is not the time to suspend a flu vaccination programme since vaccination is very crucial this year, considering…the COVID-19 outbreaks.”

According to Reuters, “Some initial autopsy results from the police and the National Forensic Service showed that 13 people died of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and other disorders not caused by the vaccination.”

The South Korean government is hopeful to vaccinate approximately 30 million of the country’s 54 million people.

Concerns Some People Have With The Flu Shot: One concern many people seem to have is the worry of a severe adverse reaction.

Dr. Alvin Moss, MD and professor at the West Virginia University School of Medicine emphasizes in this video:

The flu vaccine happens to be the vaccine that causes the most injury in this country. The vaccine injury compensation program, 40 percent of all vaccinations in this country are flu shots, but 60 percent of all the compensations are for the flu vaccine. So a disproportionate number of  vaccine related injuries are the flu shot.

Moss is one of many who believe that the flu vaccine is not as effective as it’s been marketed to be. For example,  A study recently published in Global Advances In Health & Medicine titled “Ascorbate as Prophylaxis and Therapy for COVID-19—Update From Shanghai and U.S. Medical Institutions outlines the following:

Recently outlined A recent consensus statement from a group of renowned infectious disease clinicians observed that vaccine programs have proven ill-suited to the fast-changing viruses underlying these illnesses, with efficacy ranging from 19% to 54% in the past few years.

Dr. Peter Doshi is an associate editor at The BMJ (British Medical Journal)  published a paper in The BMJ titled “Influenza: Marketing Vaccines By Marketing Disease.”  In it,  he points out that the CDC pledges “to base all public health decisions on the highest quality of scientific data, openly and objectively derived,” and how this isn’t the case when it comes to the flu vaccine and its marketing. He stresses that “the vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and that “the threat of influenza seems to be overstated.”

These are just a few examples out of many claiming that the flu shot has not really been effective, opposing others that claim it is.  Mercury that’s still present in some flu shots also seems to be a concern.

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid more than $4 billion to families of vaccine injured children. A 2010 HHS pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) found that 1 in every 39 vaccines causes injury, a shocking comparison to the claims from the CDC of 1 in every million.

Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project stated at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference that more doctors are starting to be hesitant when it comes to recommending vaccines.

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen… still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider…

This is no secret, and actions against mandates are being taken. The University of California was recently sued for making the flu shot mandatory. That trial will begin soon, and you can read more about it here, and find information regarding the claim that the flu shot can help in the times of COVID-19.

The Takeaway: We are living in an age of extreme censorship of information, no matter how credible or how much evidence is provided, information that goes against the grain always seems to receive a harsh backlash from mainstream media as well as social media outlets. Why is there a digital fact checker patrolling the internet? Should people not have the right to examine information openly and freely and determine for themselves what is and what isn’t?

As far as vaccines are concerned, despite the fact that there are many safety issues the scientific community  is bringing up, a push for vaccine mandates continues and the idea that we are protecting other people is usually the narrative that’s pushed hard. Vaccine skepticism is growing at a fast pace among people of all professions, and people aren’t stupid. There’s a reason why more and more people are starting to question what we’ve been told for years, and those reasons should be acknowledged and openly discussed amongst people on both sides of the coin.
