You can always count on the government to take advantage of a crisis, legitimate or manufactured.
This coronavirus pandemic is no exception.

Not only are the federal and state governments unraveling the constitutional fabric of the nation with lockdown mandates that are sending the economy into a tailspin and wreaking havoc with our liberties, but they are also rendering the citizenry fully dependent on the government for financial handouts, medical intervention, protection and sustenance.
Unless we find some way to rein in the government’s power grabs, the fall-out will be epic.
Everything I have warned about for years—government overreach, invasive surveillance, martial law, abuse of powers, militarized police, weaponized technology used to track and control the citizenry, and so on—has coalesced into this present moment.
The government’s shameless exploitation of past national emergencies for its own nefarious purposes pales in comparison to what is presently unfolding.
Deploying the same strategy it used with 9/11 to acquire greater powers under the USA Patriot Act, the police state—a.k.a. the shadow government, a.k.a. the Deep State—has been anticipating this moment for years, quietly assembling a wish list of lockdown powers that could be trotted out and approved at a moment’s notice.
It should surprise no one, then, that the Trump Administration has asked Congress to allow it to suspend parts of the Constitution whenever it deems it necessary during this coronavirus pandemic and “other” emergencies.
It’s that “other” emergencies part that should particularly give you pause, if not spur you to immediate action (by action, I mean a loud and vocal, apolitical, nonpartisan outcry and sustained, apolitical, nonpartisan resistance).
In fact, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has been quietly trotting out and testing a long laundry list of terrifying powers that override the Constitution.
We’re talking about lockdown powers (at both the federal and state level): the ability to suspend the Constitution, indefinitely detain American citizens, bypass the courts, quarantine whole communities or segments of the population, override the First Amendment by outlawing religious gatherings and assemblies of more than a few people, shut down entire industries and manipulate the economy, muzzle dissidents, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease,” reshape financial markets, create a digital currency (and thus further restrict the use of cash), determine who should live or die…
You’re getting the picture now, right?
These are powers the police state would desperately like to make permanent.
Bear in mind, however, that these powers the Trump Administration, acting on orders from the police state, are officially asking Congress to recognize and authorize barely scratch the surface of the far-reaching powers the government has already unilaterally claimed for itself.
Unofficially, the police state has been riding roughshod over the rule of law for years now without any pretense of being reined in or restricted in its power grabs by Congress, the courts or the citizenry.
This current pandemic is a test to see whether the Constitution—and our commitment to the principles enshrined in the Bill of Rights—can survive a national crisis and true state of emergency.
Here’s what we know: whatever the so-called threat to the nation—whether it’s civil unrest, school shootings, alleged acts of terrorism, or the threat of a global pandemic in the case of COVID-19—the government has a tendency to capitalize on the nation’s heightened emotions, confusion and fear as a means of extending the reach of the police state.
This coronavirus epidemic, which has brought China’s Orwellian surveillance out of the shadows and caused Italy to declare a nationwide lockdown threatens to bring the American Police State out into the open on a scale we’ve not seen before.
Every day brings a drastic new set of restrictions by government bodies (most have been delivered by way of executive orders) at the local, state and federal level that are eager to flex their muscles for the so-called “good” of the populace.
This is where we run the risk of this whole fly-by-night operation going completely off the rails.
It’s one thing to attempt an experiment in social distancing in order to flatten the curve of this virus because we can’t afford to risk overwhelming the hospitals and exposing the most vulnerable in the nation to unavoidable loss of life scenarios. However, there’s a fine line between strongly worded suggestions for citizens to voluntarily stay at home and strong-armed house arrest orders with penalties in place for non-compliance.
More than three-quarters of all Americans have now been ordered to stay at home and that number is growing as more states fall in line.
Schools have canceled physical classes, many for the remainder of the academic year.
Many of the states have banned gatherings of more than 10 people.
At least three states (Nevada, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania) have ordered non-essential businesses to close.
In Washington, DC, residents face 90 days in jail and a $5,000 fine if they leave their homes during the coronavirus outbreak. Residents of Maryland, Hawaii and Washington state also risk severe penalties of up to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine for violating the stay-at-home orders. Violators in Alaska could face jail time and up to $25,000 in fines.
Kentucky residents are prohibited from traveling outside the state, with a few exceptions.
New York City, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., is offering its Rikers Island prisoners $6 an hour to help dig mass graves.
In San Francisco, cannabis dispensaries were included among the essential businesses allowed to keep operating during the city-wide lockdown.
New Jersey’s governor canceled gatherings of any number, including parties, weddings and religious ceremonies, and warned the restrictions could continue for weeks or months. One city actually threatened to prosecute residents who spread false information about the virus.
Oregon banned all nonessential social and recreational gatherings, regardless of size.
Rhode Island has given police the go-ahead to pull over anyone with New York license plates to record their contact information and order them to self-quarantine for 14 days.
South Carolina’s police have been empowered to break up any public gatherings of more than three people.
Of course, there are exceptions to all of these stay-at-home orders (in more than 30 states and counting), the longest of which runs until June 10. Essential workers (doctors, firefighters, police and grocery store workers) can go to work. Everyone else will have to fit themselves into a variety of exceptions in order to leave their homes: for grocery runs, doctor visits, to get exercise, to visit a family member, etc.
Throughout the country, more than 14,000 “Citizen-Soldiers” of the National Guard have been mobilized to support the states and the federal government in their fight against the coronavirus.
Thus far, we have not breached the Constitution’s crisis point: martial law has yet to be overtly imposed (although an argument could be made to the contrary given the militarized nature of the American police state).
It’s just a matter of time before all hell breaks loose.
If this is not the defining point at which we cross over into all-out totalitarianism, then it is at a minimum a test to see how easily we will surrender.
Generally, the government has to show a compelling state interest before it can override certain critical rights such as free speech, assembly, press, search and seizure, etc. Most of the time, it lacks that compelling state interest, but it still manages to violate those rights, setting itself up for legal battles further down the road.
These lockdown measures—on the right of the people to peaceably assemble, to travel, to engage in commerce, etc.—unquestionably restrict fundamental constitutional rights, which might pass muster for a short period of time, but can it be sustained for longer stretches legally?
That’s the challenge before us, of course, if these days and weeks potentially stretch into months-long quarantines.
At the moment, the government believes it has a compelling interest—albeit a temporary one—in restricting gatherings, assemblies and movement in public in order to minimize the spread of this virus.
The key point is this: while we may tolerate these restrictions on our liberties in the short term, we should never fail to be on guard lest these one-time constraints become a slippery slope to a total lockdown mindset.
What we must guard against, more than ever before, is the tendency to become so accustomed to our prison walls—these lockdowns, authoritarian dictates, and police state tactics justified as necessary for national security—that we allow the government to keep having its way in all things, without any civic resistance or objections being raised.
Most of all, don’t be naïve: the government will use this crisis to expand its powers far beyond the reach of the Constitution.
That’s how it starts.
Travel too far down that slippery slope, and there will be no turning back.
As I make clear in my book “Battlefield America: The War on the American People,” if you wait to speak out—stand up—and resist until the government’s lockdowns impact your freedoms personally, it could be too late.
Just because we’re fighting an unseen enemy in the form of a virus doesn’t mean we have to relinquish every shred of our humanity, our common sense, or our freedoms to a nanny state that thinks it can do a better job of keeping us safe.
Whatever we give up willingly now—whether it’s basic human decency, the ability to manage our private affairs, the right to have a say in how the government navigates this crisis, or the few rights still left to us that haven’t been disemboweled in recent years by a power-hungry police state—we won’t get back so easily once this crisis is past.
The government never cedes power willingly.
Neither should we.

What Do We Do In The Face Of Oppression?
- The Facts:
Tensions around the world have reached a boiling point it seems. People, from different backgrounds and countries have had enough of oppression and corrupt systems are being pushed to the brink.
- Reflect On:
Is it time humanity rises up beyond the need for a ruling elite to call the shots in their lives?
The past few weeks I have not even had a clear idea as to what to even say about the state of the world. I get feelings and explore them, but what I’m observing is often unclear and points to a society that is having a multitude of issues surface at once. Most of the time, I feel like things just need to play out as they are, as opposed to going back to “normal.” Things being “normal” keeps us blind to a society built to oppress the masses, and humanity has more than enough of normal to know we don’t thrive in “normal” – we simply survive. Do we want to simply survive or do we want to thrive? It’s time to face some stuff we have been avoiding about ourselves for a long time.
When COVID-19 struck, it had all the hallmarks of an event being blown up by media and government to push forth agendas. False and ever-changing numbers, retractions that go unnoticed by the public, fear propaganda, censorship of experts with a different narrative, and so on. The whole event was one big attempt to use a virus not much different than the flu to bring about things in our world that don’t truly serve the public, but that instead serve the elite who own and control society.
Amongst COVID comes the senseless killing of a man by police officers. When George Floyd’s name began hitting the news cycle it was a sad moment as yet again another human dies at the hands of people that are supposedly there to protect people. The video evidence is clear, the public servant killed a man through the use of force, regardless of how many times Floyd said “I can’t breathe.”
Yet again, I found myself sifting through the never-ending differences of opinions and ideas as to what is happening, what happened, who is to blame, and what should happen from here on out. I’ve listened to videos from people all over the place, trying to get a clear idea as to what people are feeling so as to make sense of what solutions can be brought to the table. My passion in life is to help bring change to this world, change that starts within each of us. In that process, I find it important to get clear on issues so that we can get clear on what actions we can take.
One of the worst things we can do when trying to solve a problem that exists is take actions we think are helping when in fact they are not. This causes us to stop looking for solutions as we think we have already found it. Why it has taken me so long to figure out what to say is because I can’t get a clear idea within myself, or from the many, many voices I have listened to on this issue.
I see trends starting, the black screen on Instagram for example, where we stand in silence, apparently in unity, but is this solving anything? I don’t doubt that people’s intentions are beautiful, I question whether we are simply doing something that is trendy or whether we are once again staying silent while people’s voices should be heard. It reminds me of voting in our current modern times… Voting is being silent while you believe your voice is heard. Non-compliance, on an organized and collective level, is how your voice gets heard.
As an organizer on the ground in Oakland. I don’t need y’all Blacking out IGs. I need you reposting our asks of the community. I need you reposting our words and politics. Listen to us who on the ground doing the work. #BlackOutTuesday
— Free Jalil Muntaqim (@BlakeDontCrack) June 2, 2020
One thing I’ve learned over the years doing the work I do is that current events are often not simple to explain. Sometimes there are details that go untold, get intentionally left out, politics that get in the way, social engineering involvement, etc. And the way we hear about these issues from mainstream media is highly calculated. The same people that are piling bricks at the protest sites during these recent protests are likely the same people pushing racial divides through mainstream media. They want the public to look dangerous and out of control. They want to push already tense emotions into a state of rage so that people act out and it calls in the need for more control and crackdowns. This is how an oppressive infrastructure of rule functions.
But don’t think this is the first time objects have been laid at a protest site to cause violence, it’s a common tool used in protests all around the world. When the G20 was in Toronto, I was covering it as a journalist. I had my camera and was positioned at the front lines of the protest. Since I was about 100 meters away from the front lines to get a full shot, I was further down the road and could see how police were preparing for the coming crowds.
Police backed off, they parked cars in the middle of streets set up for a photoshoot. They had plain-clothed, mask-wearing people amongst them. The same people that ran into the crowds, destroyed business, smashed police cars, lit them on fire, and then ran back behind police lines safely. At the G20 summit in Toronto, the police stoked the violence they created it and they took part it in – OTHER OFFICERS KNEW and went along with it.
What does this tell you about the relationship police have with the communities they are supposed to protect? Are they united with them? Or united with someone else? Who are they united with? Why do governments do nothing to change this? What does that say about the actual relationship government has with people? Does it show they truly work in the favor of the people? Does it show they are providing a society where people can thrive? Why do we support such an oppressive society?
Why is it that in the US, 99% of cases where police kill someone, they go uncharged? It doesn’t matter if the dead person is black white, brown, yellow, or green, they aren’t charged. Why?
Extremely similar to the case of George Floyd in almost every detail is the story of Tony Timpa, one most people don’t know anything about. Tony called 911 for help when he was having a reaction to drugs. Released footage from Dallas police shows police officers mocking Timpa while he is handcuffed and while one officer has a knee on his back for 14 minutes. As Timpa struggles to live, the officers make fun of Timpa’s repeated cries for help. Timpa said he couldn’t breathe and felt they were going to kill him. He pleaded more than 30 times. Eventually, one officer notes that he appears to be “out cold.” They then joke that he’s merely asleep and try to wake him: “It’s time for school. Wake up!” One officer mimics a teen saying: “I don’t want to go to school! Five more minutes, Mom!” Tony dies, and even when that is confirmed, the cops are still laughing as if his death was a joke.
Timpa’s story is strikingly similar to Floyd’s. Non-dangerous men are met by police, they are posing no threat to police, they are then murdered by police while all police around don’t seem to care.
Similar to Floyd’s case and others, in Timpa’s case we saw the city of Dallas and the Dallas County officials fight for months so the footage would not be released to the public. Eventually, the records came out. The three officers involved, Kevin Mansell, Danny Vasquez, and Dustin Dillard, were indicted by a grand jury in 2017 on charges of misdemeanor deadly conduct, three months after media began publishing investigations into Timpa’s death.
Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot then dismissed charges on all three officers. They each only received a few months of administrative leave.
Tony Timpa is a white male.
I’m not telling you about this because he was white, I’m telling you about this because we have to ask why we don’t hear about these things when they are not politically useful for elites to create a divide. Hundreds of non-black Americans are killed every year and no justice is served. Why were the police protected? Why wasn’t this a huge story? Why did the police try to hide what they did?
We have an epidemic of police brutality, black people more affected, but everyone affected, and yet we are unclear how to stop it. I do not think it’s a good thing that black people have to feel unsafe in their own city because of what police might do. Racist tendencies on the police force should be weeded out by removing those officers. In situations that are life and death, we can’t take chances. But if I’m being perfectly honest, I can’t say that I feel safe with police either. Nor do I trust government who is constantly working to oppress its people. I’ve had many run ins with cops in my day, never have I committed a crime, and only once or twice were those run ins a positive experience. I’ve witnessed innocent people be beat up and taken to jail by police, why? Still to this day I don’t know.
It’s true that police are not running around hunting down citizens to do bad things to, but there is still way too much injustice taking place towards citizens, and we can’t keep turning a blind eye.
We must continue to speak out on racism and help others understand their ways aren’t supporting a loving community. We must begin to recognize the even bigger picture in that we live in a society that is socially engineered to keep us divided and enslaved to a ruling elite. This elite is who police protect. This elite doesn’t want people to see them, doesn’t want people to unite snd move beyond the dynamic of giving our power to them while thinking others in society are our enemies.
The statistics in the US show that police are killing large numbers of people from all races, yet we only hear of stories that fuel racial divide. Why? These killings are all going on without ay accountability, why? We get coaxed into focusing heavily on issues that will divide us by class, race, gender, and so forth – all in effect making it so we cannot unite.
Our company, CE, who has been reporting on the actions of this ruling elite ad attempting to unite people through love and action for over 11 years has been silenced, kicked off of platforms, defamed and has had our revenue cut by over a million dollars per year. The attack on our company by deep state-aligned platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube ad Google has taken our team from 14 down to 3. That’s how much power goes into silencing voices that go against the divisive forces that enslave and oppress us all because we do not come together, unite and move into non-compliance with their systems. We instead ask their systems for justice. How does this make any sense?
It’s time for a new approach, a new story.
Neutrality Is Key
People confuse this a lot. they often feel neutrality means you don’t stand for something, or neutrality means you don’t care about anything, this isn’t what neutrality is to me. Neutrality is about moving beyond the divisive tools that pull us out of clarity. Moving beyond things like race wars, gender, pride, patriotism, political sides, religious beliefs shaping how we see events. It means going back to seeing yourself as a human, connected to everyone and everything. Heck, quantum physics and emerging science supports the very fact that we are inherently connected to everything ad thus connected to oneness – that oneness is neutral in that it does not define itself by emotions and beliefs.
At the moment, many black feel fed up with how they are treated in the United States – and they very well should be. I can’t tell you how often someone might deal with a racial prejudice because I am not them, but I am sure it happens. On top of that, people all over the world have become completely fed up with a system of mass oppression that backs billions of people into a corner, and they have had enough of it.
What was the coronavirus lockdown? It was an overreaching lockdown about a virus that is not dangerous. It took away rights, freedoms, and free speech. It collapsed economies and will strip billions in wealth from the people. This event too boiled tensions.
This systemic collective oppression goes beyond countries, it’s a coordinated effort that affects countries all over the world. I feel like what we are seeing right now is the boiling over of all of these tensions within people, partly fueled by media narratives, and partly fueled by the deep knowing that we live in infrastructural systems that are designed to enslave and oppress the masses everywhere.
These are systems run by an extremely small portion of the population that do not have humanity’s best interest at heart, ad who are being exposed at a record rate this past year. Often called conspiracy theories, people’s knowledge about who the deep state is and how it functions is growing rapidly as we enter into a crucial phase of awakening I call Breaking The Illusion. It’s where we begin to note that the world doesn’t work the way we thought it does. We begin to see that our education systems, media and politicians have been fundamentally lying to us about almost everything.
But before we get into anger and hatred about that fact, let’s recall the next step of awakening I call Awakening Neutrality. This is where we begin to see that this doesn’t have to be a fight to perpetuate more oppression, but instead a decision to see what’s happening, and move beyond it without needing those oppressive systems to do all the change for us. It’s about choosing love ad action from love, vs simply getting angry and wanting a fight or revenge.
The Choice Is Ours
In my eyes, we are living in an epidemic of disconnection. An epidemic of division. Depending on the day of the week, we put on a new hat as to how we divide ourselves and on what issue. We don’t look at one another as humans. We don’t see the beauty and the love that we all have, we are instead trained to see all of our difference, and to focus so heavily on them that they overtake how we identify as beings.
The more we buy into the social engineering of today, the more we buy into hate and division – not love. We are then left deeply confused, all while thinking we are informed. This happens because we’ve become addicted to a fast-paced society where we are coaxed into getting stuck in a literal biochemical state where we cannot think clearly or function properly. We get trapped in our sympathetic nervous system and literally stay in stress mode all the time. It arouses our emotions, clouds our thinking and moves us into danger/survival mode… even when there isn’t a threat.
What type of world will this create? How will we thrive in a world like this? How will people act in a state like this? How will police act in a state like this? One literally cannot gain clarity from this state. And yet from this state we are making decisions, passing judgments, voting, and engaging in trying to make change. All of this from a position where we are emotionally out of touch with reality and unclear in our minds. Again, what type of world will this create?
I write this and cannot say I’m clear on what we should do. I don’t know how to stop police from disproportionately killing black people just as I am not sure how to get them to stop killing people in general. I can say we need to be more loving, more connected, and begin seeing that which unites us. I can say stop listening to mainstream media, messages of hate, and to not fall for the social conditioning of elites who are engineering a full-scale society of mass oppression, but will we consider that? Will we add to our own thoughts to the table? Will we engage in important discussions from a place of oneness instead of just our perspective?
That I believe is on us… because government and mainstream media sure as heck isn’t going to offer anything of value to this conversation. It’s time for the people to unite, become self-responsible, grounded in love, and organize.

Have you been consuming more content these days? How much of what you've been watching and listening to has a positive impact on your state of being?
Regardless of your perspective on the current global situation, one thing is undeniable, that a good portion of us have, and continue to find ourselves, with more free time than we are typically used to. While we may be filling a portion of this newfound freedom with “productive” activities, a recent Visual Capitalist study revealed what is likely not very surprising: that we are all consuming more content.
Whether it be through online videos, broadcast TV, video games, livestreams, or binge watching a new show on our favorite streaming platform we are all taking in even more than we previously were, with certain age groups being drawn to particular forms of content more than others.

The Top Three “Alternative” Treatments For Covid-19 That’ve Been Ridiculed By Mainstream Media
- The Facts:
Multiple "alternative" treatments have shown success with regards to treating COVID-19 patients. These treatments have been ridiculed and labelled as fake within the mainstream instead of being explored and discussed openly.
- Reflect On:
Why is there is much ridicule when it comes to health solutions that don't come from big pharmaceutical companies?
“Fact-checkers” are patrolling the internet hard and censoring an enormous amount of content and specific media organizations, like Collective Evolution. Working simultaneously together with this fact-checker is mainstream media, which for the most part have become mouthpieces for the “establishment,” and have become a tool to promote information that just isn’t true or has very little backing while simultaneously ridiculing anything that threatens their narrative. Big media’s connections with special interests from big corporations and government agencies alone is quite large. You can read more about that and find multiple examples in an article I published earlier on that specific topic that goes into more detail, here.
Mainstream media has been exposed many times with regards to spreading misinformation and propaganda. Examples of misinformation from mainstream media keep pouring out, and there’s little doubt in the eyes of many that they are simply being used to push a false narrative, and have been doing so on many different topics for a long time.
We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. … It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” – Edward Bernay’s (Propaganda 128)
The latest example of perception manipulation comes with regards to alternative treatments for the new coronavirus that have appeared to generate some success, at least enough that should warrant a joint investigation by multiple countries and health organizations. Instead of that happening, ridicule is instantly created using big media, and casting doubt on these alternate treatments ensues. This, to me, appears to be a very clever business tactic.
What’s even more alarming is the fact that the world’s leading epidemiologists, scientists, and many doctors are being banned from YouTube and other social media platforms for simply sharing their research and opinions, many of which go against that of our federal health regulatory organizations and The World Health Organization (WHO).
These days, it’s big business that regulates and controls what is deemed to be “the cure” or “the treatment.” This doesn’t seem to be a battle to stop Covid-19 as much as much as it seems to be a battle to exaggerate the danger and harms of Covid-19, as well as market the vaccine as the only possible solution, as the only thing without question that has any potential to work. But this simply isn’t true.
Why are people like Bill Gates becoming our health authority, why are some countries attacking the WHO? Why is there a digital “fact-checker” going around the internet? Who is fact checking the fact checkers? Should people not have the right to examine information, sources, expert opinions and evidence openly and freely and determine for themselves what is and what isn’t? What’s really going on here?
Events like this pandemic only serve the collective and encourage people to ask more questions. It helps them see and become more aware of the corruption our world is dealing with, and has been dealing with for a long time. In order to stop it, we must first at the very least become aware of it. This process has been taking place for quite some time now, and gets more intense every single day, month and year.
Who are the treatments below ridiculed? Why does the mainstream claim they have no legitimacy when clearly, they do? Instead we are told to wear masks like our lives depend on it. You can read more about the legitimacy of masks with regards to fighting the new coronavirus, here.
This does not mean that these are cures, they are simply examples of low risk treatments for coronavirus patients that have, again shown potential and success, which means they should have been openly explored by our health authorities, not ridiculed.
Vitamin C. Any Legitimacy?
Vitamin C has been completely ignored as being a substance of great use during this pandemic, and for health and other ailments in general. More than once did mainstream media and fact-checkers claim that there is no evidence whatsoever that Vitamin C could be of some assistance, but this simply isn’t true.
A doctor who was seeing success with it on Covid-19 patients recently had his practice raided by the FBI as a result of using it. You can read more about that here.
Meanwhile in China, Dr. Zhi Yong Peng, a professor and the Chief of Critical Care Medicine at Zhongnan Hospital, in Wuhan, China, recently explained how treating COVID-19 patients with high dose intravenous vitamin C has been successful. He is the principle investigator for “Vitamin C Infusion for the Treatment of Severe 2019-nCoV Infected Pneumonia” (ClinicalTrials.gov)
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 has been updating everyone via his YouTube channel about vitamin C treatment cases out of China for quite some time now. The published article explains how 50 moderate to severe Covid-19 cases have been successfully treated with intravenous vitamin C.
Multiple hospitals in New York were noticing that it was helping as well. You can read more about that here.
Again, instead of health authority figures coming together to examine this kind of thing, it’s instant ridicule and condemnation without any investigation. This doesn’t seem right? Why aren’t we working together? Why are big business interests coming before people’s health? This isn’t anything new.
Hydroxychloroquine along with Zinc have also made a lot of noise. Dr. Anthony Cardillo, an ER specialist and CEO of Mend Urgent Care explained the treatment combination he is seeing great success with or severe COVID patients. He has been prescribing the zinc and hydroxychloroquine combination on patients experiencing severe symptoms associated with COVID-19, and he’s not the only one. You can read more about that here.
Professor Didier Raoult from France not long ago published his early results for Hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for moderate to severe COVID-19 patients. 973 patients out of 1063, according to him, have shown “a good clinical outcome.” You can read more about that and find other examples, here.
President Trump has even taken this treatment, along with others within the political realm like the president of El Salvador, for example.
This drug was never considered dangerous, all of a sudden, it is now? Why?
Herbs in Madagascar
Tremendous success has been seen in Covid-19 patients in Madagascar. In an and interview with FRANCE 24 and RFI, Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina defended his promotion of a controversial homegrown remedy for Covid-19 despite an absence of clinical trials. “It works really well,” he said of the herbal drink “Covid-Organics.” They are, as the president expressed, herbs that have been brewed to extract their medicinal properties. He explains that his country has been doing things this way for a very long time, and they’ve always worked.
You can learn more about that by watching an interview with him here.
The discussion also goes into the western pharmaceutical lobby, which is quite large. Vimeo also recently banned a documentary showing the strong influence that pharmaceutical companies have on the WHO. This type of thing gained a lot more attention years ago when Wikileaks released documents showing a great deal for concern with regards to pharmaceutical influence within the WHO.
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)
Many would compare what’s going on today as a medical tyranny. It’s powerful, and in my opinion it’s one of the main causes of poor health and dangerous medicines. What’s happening in the world of medicine, from business to academia is being exposed more and more everyday. At the end of the day, this type of system needs people who believe in it. Our perception, our own consciousness has been manipulated to accept a system that greatly harms and oppresses our full potential. Imagine a world we we all explored cures and treatments for various diseases based on what works best, instead of finding a way to somehow own it, and sell it. We have the potential to do a lot better than what we are doing. Big business and control is standing in the way, and we are the tools the use to sustain their business model. The more of us that snap out of it, the closer we get to creating something completely new and effective, and something that is a true representation of our potential to treat and heal the sick.
