The Daily Mail reports having successfully completed an undercover ‘sting’ operation, complete with hidden camera video, showing a licensed pharmacist selling dangerous, highly addictive drugs, with side effects including hallucinations and heart failure, to a customer ‘for prices higher than those on the street.’

Oh wait a minute. That’s not actually a crime. That’s business as usual.

The transaction caught on video—60 Xanax tablets for £ 150—was only a ‘crime’ because the person soliciting the drugs did not have a scribble of paper rubber-stamped by a Western medical doctor. And for the Daily Mail, this act exemplified an insidiously growing trend on the part of pharmacists who are circumventing the law for profit:

Pharmacists acting like ‘street drug dealers’ are flooding the black market with potentially dangerous prescription drugs such as Xanax. The drugs can then be swiftly sold on through social media to young people in schools and universities where they are increasingly being abused with devastating consequences.

Student Misuse

Drugs like Xanax in the hands of a young person who takes the drug in unsafe doses, or who suddenly stops taking the drug, certainly puts that young person at severe risk. The Daily Mail made sure to include a sidebar article about a female student who hanged herself after cutting off her unauthorized use of the drug after six weeks. Apparently, she had gotten it from a fellow student and started taking it to quell her anxiety.

But while there are grounds for genuine concern about the illegal trafficking and abuse of these dangerous drugs, these concerns should not be blatantly used as a smoke screen to obfuscate the root problem: the fact that these drugs are being manufactured at all, and are made readily available for human consumption.

Controlled Narrative

When the mainstream media voices concerns over illegal prescription drug trafficking, it serves to legitimize the ‘legal drug trade’ that is going on over the counter everywhere.  Here’s how the narrative is framed:

Julie Cooper, Labour’s community health spokesman and a former pharmacy owner, said: ‘Every decent pharmacist will want to get to the bottom of this issue because it could bring the whole profession into disrepute.’ The Government’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority [MHRA] is working with the police to crack down on the diversion of drugs from the legitimate supply chain.

This statement makes the distinction between so-called illegal procurement of these pharmaceutical drugs and what is called ‘the legitimate supply chain,’ a fancy way of describing a drug trade that carries with it an air of respectability, based on decades of careful planning on the part of the controllers of medicine in Western society.

Pharmacists are starting to see that they are just pawns in this drug trade—so some of them have decided that they want to get in on the action a little more. Some of them even know that the National Health Service sees profit, not public health and safety, as its prime motive. One pharmacist in Manchester who did not sell the drugs to the reporter without a prescription actually told him to buy the drugs from the internet. He said they wouldn’t be fake because ‘people get them from the NHS and sell them on eBay.’

‘Treating’ Anxiety

The core problem is that, as a society, we have been inculcated by the idea that personal difficulties such as anxiety are cause by a chemical imbalance in the brain, and consequently a person with anxiety should take pharmaceuticals that will supposedly restore that balance.

In fact, the chemical imbalance is not at cause, it is a symptom of something deeper: the way a person’s mind is interpreting the world and guiding their actions. Anxiety is a person’s mind and body calling on them to pay attention to their habits of thought and action, and make changes that will restore balance in their lives and alleviate their suffering.

Material Limitations

However, most Western doctors are completely unequipped to do this, because they are trained in material science only, and so don’t go beyond trying to impact material processes. And this is fully by design. What is the Western doctor to do? Well obviously, they have to prescribe something to change the situation the client is complaining about, so that they can actually justify the time and trouble the patient took to go and see them.

Doctors rampantly prescribing dangerous drugs to patients in need will one day be seen as the systemic crime that it is. At best these drugs only mask symptoms and prevents a person from being encouraged and motivated to find the root cause of their anxiety at its source. At worst, the drugs themselves cause debilitating addiction, painful side-effects, and even death.

Taking Back Our Power

For thousands of years, human societies have dealt with issues like personal anxiety through care, love, support, and encouraging a sense of belonging. Practices and habits around eating, sleeping, exercise, work and leisure were the sources of restoration for mental and emotional imbalance. As we awaken, we are starting to notice just how much we’ve surrendered our own healing capacities to the Western medical establishment.

Should we be worried that revelations of pharmacist malfeasance ‘could bring the whole profession into disrepute’? That could actually turn out to be the best thing for our collective health.

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
