We are all free-thinkers. We hold the ability to form our own opinions, daydream, overthink, critically think, and even conjure up tales of adventure and loss using our creative minds. Our minds are separate from the Self, so even though the mind is essentially an illusion, it can be thought to represent a portion of our individuality.
Have you ever thought about how much of your thoughts are truly and authentically your own? The fact of the matter is that we are subject to propaganda, false advertising, and other methods of manipulating our thoughts and perceptions every day. For a long time, the elite have used different tools to influence our thoughts and actions, a tactic often referred to as frequency control.
Here are 8 ways the elite manipulate our perception of reality:
1. Mass Marketing
It’s practically impossible to escape mass marketing advertisements in North America now. Even if you live in a rural area, you’re bound to come across a giant McDonald’s sign eventually. We’re told what to eat, what clothes to wear, and even what pharmaceutical drugs to take through advertisements!
Even though it’s illegal for Big Pharma to advertise drugs in other countries, it’s completely legal in North America. The advertisements are often misleading, overstating the benefits and completely omitting the risks or potential side effects (or simply putting them in tiny, illegible letters). The FDA has stepped in multiple times, sending pharmaceutical companies warning letters or even forcing them to take down their ads because they are false, misleading, and/or exaggerate the effects of their drugs (source). Whether it’s an ad for cancer drugs, over-the-counter meds, or even an ad targeted at parents for ADHD pills for their children, they’re often a form of false advertising.
Why do you think everyone seems to own the same things? Everyone wants the newest iPhone, the latest pair of Nikes, and more. We live in a consumeristic world, a fact that has become so blatantly obvious that North American teenagers are starting to look like clones of one another. This begs the question: How much of what you like to wear or eat is actually because you like it, and how much because you’re being told to like it?
2. Defining Social Norms
After graduating from high school, society encourages us to go to university, get a steady 9-5 job, get married, buy a house, have children, and save a ton of money for retirement. If these societal goals aren’t met, we’re deemed unsuccessful. We decide we want to get married before we’ve organically met the right person and we claim we want to have kids when we don’t even know ourselves yet. People seem to be more concerned about accomplishing these goals than actually living in the moment and enjoying life. Who was it that created this social timeline and why do we feel the need to follow it?
Married or single, gay or straight, rich or poor — these norms have created labels that we use to differentiate one another. We begin to identify ourselves using them, tying them to “who we are” when the answer to that question cannot be explained by these physical illusions. The elite has essentially forced Stockholm Syndrome onto society; we are so caught up in these norms that we don’t even realize we’re trapped and imprisoned by them, and we start to love them. The moment someone else deviates from the norm, we consider them “crazy,” when in reality they’ve just woken up!
All of the advertisements and systems in place encourage us to follow this path and idolize it. Don’t get me wrong — there’s nothing wrong with going to school, getting married, having kids, and working a lot. If you’re happy and fully connected to yourself and your surroundings, then clearly this works for you. But the increasing divorce and suicide rates suggest that perhaps these societal pressures aren’t working for everyone.
3. Classifying Information and Keeping Secrets
Keeping us in the dark is something that the elite is very skilled at, especially since many people don’t even know who “the elite” are (or the shadow government). Documents upon documents are kept classified, particularly UFO files and black budget programs.
A few years ago, Edward Snowden, a former intelligence contractor, leaked the very first documentation proving the existence of clandestine black budget operations (1) (programs that are extremely classified regarding technology, information, and more). In fiscal year 2013, a staggering $52.6 billion was set aside for black budget operations. Keep in mind that this is just the reported number; some evidence suggests this number is much higher. For example, Canada’s former Minister of National Defence, Paul Hellyer, said in 2008:
It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard. It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief no nothing about. (2)
These projects are those that are carried out through the black budget. There are other government programs designed to keep inventions and information in the dark, such as the Invention Secrecy Act (you can read more about that in our CE article here).
Even science cannot always be trusted when it comes to withholding and falsifying information, as a whopping 50% of scientific literature is estimated to be false. And this isn’t just random scientific studies; this includes peer-reviewed articles and government studies. For example, CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson publicly apologized for falsifying research, much of which was considered “pro-vaccine.” Years later, he came out admitting what he’d done, and confirming that the vaccine-autism link is very real (learn more in our CE article here).
The modern education system is filled with propaganda that only benefits the elite. For example, many people grow up thinking that North America was founded by the British. In reality, when the Europeans took over America, it represented perhaps the greatest genocide in history. American anthropologist and ethnohistorian Henry F. Dobyns estimated that more than 100 million people inhabited the Americas prior to Europe’s arrival (source). Other scholars have estimated the number to be as low as 10 million, and everything in between. For example, William M. Denovan, Professor Emeritus of Geography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, believes there were approximately 54 million inhabitants (source).
It’s no wonder that so many people feel the need to pursue further education past high school, since they don’t actually learn valuable skills otherwise. Children are taught to follow authority, conform, and memorize information as opposed to actually thinking and leading. The following video outlines the issue with modern day education:
Another example is the education provided in medical school. Doctors aren’t taught any sort of preventative measures and they’re barely informed on proper nutrition. The Rockefellers, who dominate pharmaceutical markets, have actually helped design medical school curriculum, not to better it, but rather to push the usage of more pharmaceuticals in order to raise their profits.
Pharmaceutical companies, rather than qualified and unbiased doctors, define a lot of the information that MDs are taught, and Big Pharma often influences medical professors and funds university programs. For example, 1,600 Harvard professors stated that they or a family member have ties to drug companies that could bias their teachings or research. The pharmaceutical industry donated more than $11.5 million to Harvard in 2008 for “research and continuing education classes.” Many Harvard students have expressed concern over this and it even made mainstream news when a student was belittled by his professor for asking about the side effects of a drug his professor was unlawfully promoting in class.
This has also been a prevalent issue within psychiatry. As Dr. Irwin Savodnik of UCLA explains, “The very vocabulary of psychiatry is now defined at all levels by the pharmaceutical industry.” This is partially because the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), the text most psychiatrists in the U.S. refer to to diagnose and treat their patients, is heavily biased toward using pharmaceutical drugs instead of therapy. Read more about this in our CE article here.
5. Fake News
It’s no secret that the elite control mainstream media (MSM). They orchestrated 9/11 to be reported as a “terrorist attack,” for election data to be falsified, and for us to be fed propaganda at all levels, especially when it comes to war. If you’re only watching MSM, you likely have no idea what’s actually going on in Syria, with Russia, or in regards to any foreign conflict or wars.
The CIA’s Operation MOCKINGBIRD is the government program referring to its interest and relations with MSM. MOCKINGBIRD stemmed from the CIA’s forerunner, the Office for Strategic Services (OSS, 1942-47), which, during World War II, created a working relationship with journalists and psychological warfare experts operating primarily in the European theatre.
This banned Saturday Night Live segment perfectly sums up how MSM is controlled and operated by the elite:
6. Entertainment Industry
A lot of what we buy, how we feel, and what we value is determined by the entertainment industry. Society tends to idolize celebrities, watching their every move on reality TV shows and in magazines and allowing them to inspire our choices, especially our buying habits. There’s a lot of strange elite and occult symbolism found in music videos and movies, which, if you’re interested in, you can read about on Vigilant Citizen. It’s even been speculated that Monarch Mind Control, an extension of the governmental program MK Ultra, has been used in Hollywood (read our CE article here).
Not many people know this, but the CIA has an entire department dedicated to the entertainment industry. It’s run through the CIA’s Entertainment Industry Liaison Office, which collaborates in an advisory capacity with filmmakers. The CIA doesn’t just offer guidance to filmmakers, it even offers money. In 1950, the agency bought the rights to George Orwell’s Animal Farm and then funded the 1954 British animated version of the film. Its involvement had long been rumoured, but only in the past decade have those rumours been substantiated. The link between Hollywood and the CIA isn’t something new (you can read more about that in our CE article on whistleblower Roseanne Barr here).
Tons of people over-eat, indulging in foods that are terrible for our bodies and are extremely low frequency. Food is designed to energize us; it should be benefiting our health, not cutting years off our lives. This begs the question: Are we eating foods that are unhealthy because we like the taste or because we’ve been manipulated into doing so? We are surrounded by advertisements for food (most of which is terrible for us), and food has shifted from being a means of sustenance to a global industry.
Corporations play a significant role in defining what’s healthy and what should be considered legal or illegal in regards to the food industry. For example, the USDA Food Guide Pyramid states you should eat 2-3 servings of milk, yogurt, and cheese, despite the fact that only 75% of people can actually digest milk properly, as well as 2-3 servings of meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts per day. Walter Willett of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard University states that “individuals can be very healthy with no dairy consumption at all,” and numerous studies have proven that meat consumption can cause cancer, heart disease, obesity, and many more health complications. However, according to the USDA guidelines, that’s incorrect. So, where did the disconnect occur between the government and science?
Well, the government has heavy ties to the dairy industry, as the government has helped food providers become more dairy-based, and implemented milk education into school programs. Check out this video that elaborates on the government’s ties to the dairy industry here.
The USDA has heavy ties to many advertisements and campaigns encouraging consumers to purchase meat. The U.S. government spends $38 billion annually to subsidize the meat and dairy industries, in comparison to only 0.04% of that on fruits and vegetables. If the government didn’t benefit from meat and dairy sales, our recommended intake of animal products would look significantly different.
8. Financial System
When it all comes down to it, the elite have control over the financial system, and finances control us. We live in a society that functions off of the money that circulates throughout it. Money is the very basis of all societal systems, and it is one of the key motivators behind the elite’s actions.
“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.”
– John C. Calhoun, 7th Vice President of the United States
The following video clip is from the Thrive documentary, created by Foster Gamble, the heir to the Proctor & Gamble Corporation:
The elite control so many aspects of our lives that it can sometimes be difficult to even think of our lives as being our own anymore. However, it’s important that we don’t meet this with fear. By educating one another, we can begin to recognize how these systems affect us and look at things objectively.
If you find yourself surrounded by billboards or listening to propaganda on the news, ask yourself: How is this affecting my decisions and my life? By raising our consciousness, increasing our vibration, and educating ourselves, we can shield ourselves from this type of manipulation and frequency control!
Video: The Most Significant Leak About Extraterrestrial Craft Just Went Public
- The Facts:
A recently leaked document has exposed notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, who was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space craft.
- Reflect On:
UFOs used to be a conspiracy, now they are quite mainstream and their existence is backed by tremendous amounts of evidence. The next question is, where are they from, and who made them? Will this information be suppressed too?
A quote I love to use in many of my articles comes from Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell. He said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” (source)
The thought that governments and/or rogue agencies around the world have been involved in taking down and even possibly revere engineering possible extraterrestrial craft is nothing new. Available to the public are statements from the highest ranking positions within government and the military, and there are also declassified documents that hint toward the same idea.
For example, former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer once told the public that the protocol with regards to UFOs was to “shoot first and ask questions after.” Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England who was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13 uncovered documents showing that the Royal Air Force was desperate to capture one of these UFOs and reverse engineer it. You can see those and read more about it here.
Most Significant Leak?
Check out our video segment on this new leak, or read more below.
More recently, what some are calling the most significant leak in UFO history has been made public – and it may be one of the strongest documents linking UFOs to extraterrestrials.
The document goes into detail about a meeting that was had between Dr. Eric Davis, and Vice Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson. Who is Eric Davis? He is a very well known scientist, and quite the legend. For many years he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS)(Owned by Robert Bigelow), the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin in Austin, Texas; and he is the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics who consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from July 1999 to July 2002, prior to that he was the Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The document is in the form of notes that were written by Davis after their meeting that took place in 2002, regarding a series of events that took place during the spring of 1997, when Wilson was Deputy Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Since the leak of this document, there has been no denial publicly by Davis regarding the authenticity of these documents, and the focal point of the document is about a meeting (and what happened after that meeting) that took place in 1997 between UFO researcher Dr. Steven Greer, Admiral Wilson, Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut) and other high ranking individuals within the military. This meeting was spoken about by Dr. Greer and Dr. Mitchell nearly four years prior to the leak of these documents, so it’s all very interesting. In the episode, we actually play footage of Mitchell confirming and talking about this meeting as well as Greer.
The documents point towards a program that involves the crash retrieval of extraterrestrial craft, that are “not made of this earth, not made by man.”
You can view the entire document here.
if you missed the video embed above of myself and Joe Martino having a discussion about these documents in detail, you can watch it here.
“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee
The fact that we are not alone has huge implications from science to technology, to history and possible metaphysical/spiritual implications as well. It really opens up Pandora’s Box, and it is one out of many examples that are allowing us to see how humanity has been conditioned to think a certain way, limit our reality, despite all of the evidence, that conflicts with long held belief systems.
At the end of the day, the idea that there are other highly advanced, intelligent lifeforms in the universe, or multiverse, and possibly other dimensions that are and have been visiting our planet, and others, for a very long time is most likely just the very tip of the ice-berg.
This is not a new discovery. We have had this type of knowledge of UFOs and ETs for a very long time, culture and elites have simply suppressed this knowing.
British Home Secretary Has Signed Extradition Order To Send Julian Assange To US
- The Facts:
British home secretary Sajid Javid has signed the extradition order to send Julian Assange to the US. This now leaves the final decision to the courts. It's likely that the extradition decision process will take many months to decide in court.
- Reflect On:
Is this another step in harming the freedom of press? The freedom of revealing truth to citizens? Is this government overreach whereby they feel it's OK to pretend to the public that their knowledge of truth is not important?
The British home secretary, Sajid Javid, has just signed a request for Julian Assange to be extradited to the US where he faces an 18-count indictment, issued by the US Department of Justice, for charges linked to computer hacking and revealing government secrets in collaboration with Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley Manning. The charges all fall under the Espionage Act.
“He’s rightly behind bars. There’s an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow.” – Sayid Javid
Officially, Assange is accused of soliciting and publishing classified information and conspiring to hack into a government computer. “It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts,” said Javid.
If you were to look entirely at the law, you might say “yes, technically if he did these things, there is a case to be made.” However, was Assange involved enough in this process to prosecute him? Did he do something that was a disservice to the people? Or did he do something that was a disservice to the powerful elite?
That is something for you to decide, ideally without the manipulative rhetoric from the powerful elite and the mainstream media they own. Attempts to suggest he threatens the patriotism of the US and the national security of the US might be something to observe as a clear sign of bait and switch: get upset at this, instead of looking at what he revealed about the powerful elite in the totality of the leaks he has put out.
Swedish courts had just recently rejected an extradition request for Assange to be sent back to Sweden for an alleged rape case dating back to 2010. Assange denies the accusation and has since the beginning. The decision out of Upsalla to deny his request was fueled by the claim that Assange did not need to be detained.
Assange is currently in jail for 50 weeks for skipping bail after he spent seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. He was recently too ill to appear at a hearing at Westminster magistrates court in relation to the US request. The hearing has been rescheduled for Friday, June 14th, 2019.
Thomas Garner, an extradition lawyer at Gherson Solicitors, said Javid’s certification of the request was “an important though merely procedural step” to start the extradition process.
“I would expect the court to set a preliminary timetable for the extradition process tomorrow,” he said. “It is likely to be many months before any hearing at the magistrates court and of course either side may then seek to appeal that decision in due course. Despite this, the Swedish authorities will be monitoring the process carefully as the further down the line the US proceedings get the harder it might become for the home secretary to give precedence to any competing request.”
From a systematic standpoint, this is a necessary procedural step in extraditing Assange to the US and it has been granted. It could have been blocked but Javid felt it was necessary for ‘justice to be served.’
As we can see, this is an example of a spot where someone could have stood up and said “no I don’t support this given what it does to protect the powerful elite and given what it does to journalism and the maintenance of secrecy.” Obviously, Javid would have faced much criticism if he had stood up, perhaps legal problems too, we were not able to confirm that, but we are seeing a system play entirely along with the power elite in this case.
In the video below, there is an important discussion on some of the ‘Qanon’ ideas in relation to Assange. My analysis on that is that it appears to be heavily misguided, but you decide for yourself.
Top Cancer Research Advisor Compares Wireless Radiation To Cigarettes
- The Facts:
Doctors treating patients from over-exposure to wireless radiation joined scientists at Queen's Park to recommend the Ontario Government take steps to protect public health before the roll-out of 5G – the next generation of cell phone tech.
- Reflect On:
How are technologies like this approved by federal health regulatory agencies without any appropriate safety testing?
It’s truly astonishing how the health concerns regarding wireless radiation, which are firmly established in scientific literature, are often ignored and not addressed within the mainstream media. Given the fact that mainstream media controls a large amount of people’s perception and awareness with regards to multiple issues, the health concerns regarding 5G are still largely off the radar on the minds of many.
We’ve seen many examples of how federal health regulatory agencies have been completely compromised by corporations, and the new 5G issue appears no different at the moment. This is how certain products and services get approved without ever really going through any appropriate safety testing.
A great example of this type of corporate corruption in the United States, for example, was outlined a few years ago by a group of more than a dozen scientists from within the CDC who put out a public statement, while remaining anonymous, outlining the big problem of corporate influence and the effect it is having on health policy decisions. They were referred to as the Spider Papers. The authors heavily stressed just how big of a problem this truly is.
Fast Internet, But Huge Health Risks
One of my latest articles on the subject of 5G brought to light a report published by Martin L. Pall, a PhD and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, who stated that “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.”
These health concerns are exactly why a Belgian government minister announced that Brussels is halting its 5G plans. Even before the 5G rollout, multiple countries banned Wifi & Cell Phones around schools, young children & fetuses.
With so much information and initiatives out there being created, it really goes to show that we do no live in a democracy at all. Various “things” are imposed on the populace without our knowing, and politicians never address the real concerns that the people have. Take Donald Trump for example, who recently stated that “5G is a race we will win.” On CETV we analyzed why Trump is pushing so hard for 5G, you can watch the segment here. I also recently wrote an article regarding Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau and 5G, where he also completely ignores the well known health concerns.
The truth is, doctors have been treating patients from over-exposure to wireless radiation for a while, despite the fact that many out there still, unfortunately, believe it to be a mental condition, which is misguided given all of the published science and clear harm that’s being inflicted. Scientists and doctors recently came together at Queen’s park in Toronto, Ontario, urging the provincial government to take steps to protect public health before the roll out of wireless 5G – the next generation of cell phone technology. That being said, 5G tech is already rolled out, a lot of people are using it for their internet connection, for example.
You can watch the full hearing below.
“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.”
Scientists and doctors from dozens of countries are now coming together to warn their governments about what is going on. The only issue is that governments have been compromised by corporations, but awareness is still charging ahead. The initial 5G infrastructure in Ontario 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.
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.”
The doctors 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 at Canadians for Safe Technology C4ST.org http://c4st.org/ontario-doctors-warn-of-rising-health-care-costs-after-5g-roll-out/
As always, if you want to find out more information and science about this subject, as well as ways you can reduce our exposure and protect yourself, a great place to start is with the Environmental Health Trust.
I am a big believer in the mind-body connection, some say it’s simple as, “if you don’t believe it’s harming you, it’s not.” Although that thought does have truth in it, I believe that type of mind-body effect, the ability to alter your own biology amidst environmental toxins, requires deep meditation and practice. We are so heavily bombarded with this stuff regularly that it’s simply not reasonable to overcome these effects while keeping up with daily life.
This why when highly skilled mind-body practitioners are used by scientists in the lab, still only small effects are observed. At the end of the day, there is a reason why various rates of disease ailments are on the rise, and it’s quite clear that our environment is the problem.
Again, you can protect yourself, your home by reducing your exposure. You can even purchase EMF protective paint, there are a number of ways to protect yourself but at the end of the day this is a big problem, and awareness is key. In an age of extreme censorship and a lack of coverage by mainstream media on the most important issues on our planet, it’s up to us to continue speaking up, and doing so in a credible way.
