Journalists Outraged Over Trump Were Silent About Obama Threatening Press Freedom s

Oh the humanity! The horror!

President Trump this week tweeted this:

 

 

The Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes wrote this on NewsBusters on May 8

The liberal media’s war against President Trump was as fierce as ever during the first four months of 2018, but the onslaught appears to be for naught: In the face of massive and hostile coverage from ABC, CBS and NBC, Trump’s overall job approval rating actually rose, from 37 percent in mid-December to roughly 43 percent at the end of April.

The Media Research Center studied all broadcast evening news coverage of the President from January 1 through April 30, and found 90 percent of the evaluative comments about Trump were negative — precisely the same hostile tone we documented in 2017.

From the spineless White House Correspondents’ Association came this gift-wrapped hypocrisy:

“Some may excuse the president’s inflammatory rhetoric about the media, but just
because the president does not like news coverage does not make it fake. A free press must be
able to report on the good, the bad, the momentous and the mundane, without fear or favor. And
a president preventing a free and independent press from covering the workings of our republic
would be an unconscionable assault on the First Amendment.”

This, mind you, from the self-same group to which I sent the following inquiry before their recent dinner that made much of celebrating the First Amendment. To Margaret Talev, this year’s WHCA president, I wrote: 

“This year there have been boycotts to force Laura Ingraham off of her Fox show and another attempting the same with Sean Hannity. Kevin Williamson, as you know, left National Review to accept an invitation from The Atlantic, where he was fired after two days for controversial tweets from an earlier time. When he pointed out to editor Jeffrey Goldberg that the late Atlantic contributor Christopher Hitchens was noted for controversial writings the response was: ‘Yes. But Hitchens was in the family. You are not.’

With all of that in mind, I note you have said of President Trump that “he will actively encourage members of the executive branch to attend and join us as we celebrate the First Amendment.”

My question: In celebrating the First Amendment, will anyone speaking at this year’s dinner be defending the free press/free speech rights of Laura, Sean, and Kevin? If not, why not?”

And the response from Ms. Talev? Complete and total silence. When the dinner rolled around there was not a peep about the assault on the First Amendment rights of Hannity, Ingraham and Williamson. (And full disclosure, I write columns at Hannity.com) Say again…not…a…peep. A check last year on this subject with Rush Limbaugh and I was told they had never bothered to stand up for him either when he was under assault from liberals wanting to get him off the air. 

Now? Mere words from a president using his own First Amendment rights and suddenly WHCA leaps into what passes for action from them. They castigate the President – really! – for “inflammatory rhetoric” – but are silent as liberal media was busy castigating Trump as another Hitler, an authoritarian and more. Hey…no inflammatory rhetoric there! 

Let’s recall a few things here about a president who actually did serious damage to press freedom. As the WHCA dinner loomed in 2017 (and yes, I was there for that one) The Washington Examiner’s Becket Adams took note of all the faux outrage by various media outlets that President Trump was stiffing the dinner for a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The event is decorated with lavish media parties strewn throughout the weekend of the Saturday night event, not to mention on Saturday itself. But in 2017 with Trump in the White House and taking repeated shots at the “Fake News media”? With unerring accuracy, Adams wrote:  

“Though Time, People, The New Yorker and Bloomberg are coy about what drove them to cancel their parties, Vanity Fair’s editor in chief, Graydon Carter, came right out and said it was Trump. 

It’s a strong reaction to a president who, in spite of all his anti-media tough talk, hasn’t actually done anything like what his predecessor did to curb press freedoms.

The Trump administration hasn’t, for example, subpoenaed reporters in an effort to get them to reveal their sources. Nor has it secretly collected reporters’ phone records. Nor set new records for denying Freedom of Information Act requests.

These distinctions go to Obama, whose two terms in office included several real infringements on the press.

In February 2011, for example, federal investigators were revealed to have spied on the New York Times’ James Risen. They were attempting to determine whether he was the recipient of leaked CIA information. Investigators went through Risen’s credit reports and his personal bank records, and they obtained information about his phone calls and travel, according to a motion filed in a federal court.

In April of that year, the New Yorker, Vanity Fair and Bloomberg hosted WHCA parties as if nothing had happened.” 

Note well that James Risen called Obama the “greatest enemy of press freedom in a generation.” 
He wrote an op-ed in The New York Times headlined: “If Donald Trump Targets Journalists, Thank Obama.” 

Hmmm. 

So what do we have here? The Correspondents’ Association has its knickers in a knot because of things Trump has said – which is to say they are not pleased that he has used his own First Amendment rights to express his displeasure with the media. But boycott a WHCA dinner featuring President Obama when the Obama administration is busy using the Department of Justice to jail reporters, eavesdrop on reporters, threaten reporters and “secretly collect” information about reporters? Hey…party on! And didn’t Mrs. Obama look stunning tonight!

To borrow from an old movie, that old Paul Newman classic Cool Hand Luke, “What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.” So let’s make this as plain as possible.

Giving a left-wing President of the United States a pass when he is busy trying to jail, snoop on and otherwise actually assault the First Amendment is disgraceful. Being stone cold silent on the First Amendment assaults on a Hannity, Ingraham, Williamson and a list of conservative media figures from various members of the American Left while pretending support for a free press is inexcusable. 

All of which, in turn, makes utterly laughable the business of flying into a tizzy when that President’s successor merely verbally chastises the media for, as the Media Research Center vividly demonstrated, a mind-blowing and quite deliberate bias. What is really going on here is that the liberal media effectively gives a nod to those who would “pull the credentials” of the conservative media.

Worse, when the mob forms for a Rush Limbaugh or a Lou Dobbs or other conservative media figure the silence of liberal media is effectively a nod to the idea that somehow those in conservative media are illegitimate.  And, as it were, therefore not only should conservative media have their “credentials pulled” they have no right to have those credentials in the first place. And when that fails? Sic liberal media investigative reporters on their private lives – something that would raise holy you-know-what if done in reverse.

Over at The Washington Post, media journalist Erik Wemple praised the Correspondents’ Association reaction to Trump’s latest statement by praising the group  for, incredibly, getting “a spine.” Apparently a limp noodle passes for a spine in Dr. Wemple’s view. Wemple closed out his  column by saying:

“As ever, the President’s ongoing effort to poison American journalism among his followers is far more lethal than anything he could do with White House press passes.”

It would be respectfully suggested here that American journalism has determinedly been swallowing its own journalistic arsenic – liberal elitism – for decades. Now so self-poisoned – the word that comes to mind is addicted – the liberal media that shoots up by trashing Trump and refusing to stand up for conservative media is stunned to find themselves viewed in more untrustworthy terms than Lucy promising Charlie Brown that this time, really, honest, she will hold the football.

The real bottom line is that the liberal media pulled the credentials of their own credibility a long, very long, time ago.

Pregnant Mom Thrown in Prison for Legally Defending Her Family with a Gun—NRA Silent

NRANRA

As the National Rifle Association holds its annual conference in Texas, a mother is sitting in prison in Michigan, where she will soon give birth to her second child, as she spends the next two years serving the mandatory sentence for felonious assault and a felony firearms conviction.

But Siwatu-Salama Ra, 26, was a legal gun owner with a concealed carry permit in a state that allows open carry, and when she pulled out her gun, she was defending herself, her mother and her 2-year-old daughter.

The incident occurred in July 2017 at Ra’s mother’s house when there was a conflict between Ra’s niece and a friend. Ra ordered the friend to leave the property, and when the friend’s mother, Chanell Harvey, drove to the house to pick up her daughter, a verbal conflict with Ra ensued.

Ra’s legal team told the Metro Times that Harvey attempted to run over Ra’s mother and started ramming her vehicle into Ra’s car, while Ra’s 2-year-old daughter played inside. Ra responded by reaching into her glove box and pulling out her legally registered handgun, which was unloaded.

While Ra’s decision to point the gun in Harvey’s direction stopped any further aggression and resulted in Harvey finally leaving the property, but she did so after pulling out her phone and taking pictures of Ra holding the gun—raising questions about whether she was actually concerned that Ra was going to use it to shoot her.

Harvey went straight to the police and claimed that she was the victim, and Ra was the aggressor who confronted her with a gun in her hand when she attempted to pick up her daughter. Ra also went to the police on the same day and filed a report claiming that she was attacked by Harvey and she pulled out her gun to defend herself and her family.

Given the fact that Ra was a legal gun owner with a concealed carry permit, it would be assumed by many that the law would act in her favor, especially since Michigan has a “Stand Your Ground” law, which states:

(1) An individual who has not or is not engaged in the commission of a crime at the time he or she uses deadly force may use deadly force against another individual anywhere he or she has the legal right to be with no duty to retreat if either of the following applies:

(a) The individual honestly and reasonably believes that the use of deadly force is necessary to prevent the imminent death of or imminent great bodily harm to himself or herself or to another individual.

(b) The individual honestly and reasonably believes that the use of deadly force is necessary to prevent the imminent sexual assault of himself or herself or of another individual.

However, three weeks later, a SWAT team broke down the front door and raided Ra’s house, and she quickly learned that law enforcement had already chosen a side in the case. Her lawyers told the Metro Times that a detective from the Detroit Police Department testified in court that “the department considers the person who arrives at the police station first to be the victim,” which automatically made Ra the aggressor, even though she arrived hours later to file her own report.

When the case went to trial, the court had little mercy on Ra, and her attorney, Victoria Burton-Harris, told Vox that she believes the jury was not fully informed on the facts of the case—which were not accurately collected by detectives who sided with Harvey—and they were not aware that a conviction carried a mandatory sentence.

This case was simple—a black woman, a mother, a daughter, an activist was afraid—and it didn’t matter. Her fear wasn’t significant enough for a jury of her peers to believe it. We’ll never know what more she needed to endure to justify her fear. She stood her ground and is now serving a mandatory two-year prison term. It’s a hard pill to swallow,” Burton-Harris said.

As the Metro-Times reported, before Ra was labeled as a convicted felon, she was an outspoken activist in Detroit who educated young mothers on nutrition, and she served as the co-director of the Cass Corridor’s East Michigan Environmental Action Council.

The executive director of the Sierra Club, Michael Brune, released a statement last month, condemning Ra’s sentence and the inhumane treatment she was receiving as a pregnant mother in prison:

“Siwatu-Salama Ra is a powerful and inspiring leader in the Michigan environmental justice community, and a member of the Sierra Club family who has been unjustly incarcerated for defending herself and her family as should be permitted by law. Siwatu has spent her life fighting environmental injustice and pushing back against the big polluters who are violating the law to poison her community. She does this difficult work against the backdrop of a legal system and society that disproportionately oppress people of color, particularly Black women, at every turn. In this case, it does not appear that she is being afforded the protection of the law she deserves, as is all too often the case for women of color dealing with our criminal justice system. Black women are incarcerated at a rate four times higher than white women, and Siwatu’s case is a tragic example of this injustice.”

While the NRA proudly touts the increasing number of women and mothers who are carrying concealed firearms and actively working to protect their families, it has stayed eerily silent when it comes to Ra’s case. This has left many to question if it is because Ra is Black, given the fact that the NRA has failed to speak out when Black gun owners are targeted or killed by police, even when they are following the law.

If the NRA actually cared about the Second Amendment and Americans’ civil liberties—instead of just how much money can be raised and how much public support can be garnered from powerful politicians—then it would be adamantly speaking out about the unjust arrest, conviction and overall treatment of Siwatu-Salama Ra, a mother who was wronged by a corrupt justice system and now will never be allowed to legally protect her family with a firearm again.

Teen’s Chinese Prom Dress Sparks Firestorm as Americans Stay Silent on Killing of Kids in Middle East

promprom

The debate over whether a teenage girl’s Chinese prom dress qualified as “cultural appropriation” has ignited the internet, and both Americans who are adamantly for it and fervently against it are serving as a reminder that while they are engaging in a spirited debate about what a girl is wearing, their government is actively killing young girls and boys in the Middle East.

Keziah Daum was one of many high school students who proudly posted photos on social media with the caption “PROM” this weekend. But her post was met with backlash on Twitter after another user shared her status and wrote, “My culture is NOT your goddamn prom dress,” which sparked an argument over whether the cheongsam, or traditional Chinese dress, Daum wore was appropriate.

The outrage over Daum’s choice to wear the dress was apparent. The original Tweet from Jeremy Lam criticizing it received more than 40,000 retweets and nearly 180,000 likes. In a follow-up Tweet, he wrote, “I’m proud of my culture, including the extreme barriers marginalized people within that culture have had to overcome those obstacles. For it to simply be subject to American consumerism and cater to a white audience, is parallel to colonial ideology.”

Other Twitter users commented and accused Daum of “whitewashing” the dress by wearing it to her prom and “playing dress up” without appreciating the cultural significance. One user suggested that because she is not Asian, “maybe it’s best to listen to people who actually are since you’re all about ‘appreciating the culture.’”

While everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion and social media is the place where people voice their opinions, the spirited debate from social media users raises the question:

If the thousands of Americans who voiced their opinion about a girl wearing a dress that they thought was disrespectful to a culture channeled their outrage into calling out their government for disrespecting cultures in the Middle East by destroying their cities and killing their civilians, what kind of an impact could they have?

The United States has spent years imposing its culture on sovereign nations in the Middle East by invading countries, working to overthrow Democratically-elected presidents, and exerting control over the countries’ natural resources.

What if the people who commented and said, “This is not OK,” were referring to the fact that the United States has been supplying weapons for and funding genocide in Yemen for the last three years, and its coalition recently bombed a wedding and killed at least 20 peoplemostly women and children, including the bride.

What if the outrage was targeted at the longest war in U.S. history, which is as old as many of the teenagers who attended prom this weekend? It has cost more than $1 trillion and more than 31,000 civilian deaths have been documented—with the number increasing drastically over the last few years. Yet despite the fact that the United States’ mission to bring “freedom and democracy” to Afghanistan has clearly failed, there is no end in sight.

What if the outrage from Twitter users focused on that fact that the U.S. government worked hand-in-hand with the mainstream media to sell Americans the lie that it needed to invade Iraq to rid the country of “weapons of mass destruction,” and now that same lie is being used to accuse Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of carrying out chemical attacks on his own people to justify U.S. troops remaining in the country.

The point is that anyone can get offended by anything they see on the internet, and if thousands of Americans are willing to speak up for a culture when they believe it is being disrespected by one teenage girl, where are they when cultures are being attacked by their government in the form of illegal invasions and military action?

Many of the teenage girls who live in Syria, Yemen, and Afghanistan have lost their homes, their families, and even their cities because of bombs dropped by the United States, and that has to be the greatest form of disrespect.

Double Standard: CNN’s Stelter Silent on NBC Pressuring Female Journalists to Back Brokaw

Early last month, CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter was apoplectic that Sinclair Broadcasting Group dared to have anchors on its network of local television outlets read a scripted corporate statement railing against fake news and promising to remain factual in their reporting. Flash forward to Tuesday, May 1, and the latest instance of a media corporation pressuring its journalists involved the women of NBC feeling pressured to sign a letter defending Tom Brokaw, and the network’s reputation, from more sexual misconduct allegations. And on this, Stelter was dead silent.

Stelter’s hyperventilation about Sinclair’s scripted corporate statement began in early March when journalists at Sinclair owned stations started reaching out to him. “The promo requirements are the latest reason why some Sinclair journalists are upset with the company’s Maryland-based management. In recent years Sinclair’s owners, the Smith family, have made several programming decisions that reflect a right-wing agenda,” he decried at the time.

But that wasn’t the first time Stelter had criticized Sinclair. As the Daily Caller discovered just a couple days after he began railing against them for the scripted statement, Stelter had been a long time hater of Sinclair. “Brian Stelter won’t tell his audience he doesn’t just question Sinclair’s editorial choices but thinks the entire company is ‘evil,’” the Caller’s Joe Simonson wrote. Stelter was upset that they wouldn’t run a particular episode of ABC’s Nightline and left placards in their parking lot in protest.

Almost a month after his first report on Sinclair’s scripted promise, Stelter found a former Sinclair producer who quit his job over the corporate-directed campaign. With all of the hype Stelter was using to promote the producer’s exit, he failed to mention his strong liberal leaning on many issues and how that might have played a role in his decision. But still, the issue of Sinclair’s corporate meddling was an issue Stelter held dear.

Now to the Brokaw defense letter fiasco.

Just two days after entertainment magazine Variety published sexual harassment accusations against Brokaw, over 60 women at NBC became signatories on a letter in which they stepped up to the plate to vouch for Brokaw’s character.

Tom has treated each of us with fairness and respect. He has given each of us opportunities for advancement and championed our successes throughout our careers,” the letter said. “As we have advanced across industries — news, publishing, law, business and government — Tom has been a valued source of counsel and support. We know him to be a man of tremendous decency and integrity.

But according to a New York Post article published on Tuesday, NBC executives were breathing down the necks of their female staffers to sign the letter or face the consequences. According to an anonymous NBC staffer:

We felt forced to sign the letter supporting Brokaw. We had no choice, particularly the lower level staffers. The letter was being handed around the office and the unspoken threat was that if your name was not on it, there would be some repercussion down the road. Execs are watching to see who signed and who didn’t. This was all about coming out in force to protect NBC’s golden boy; the network’s reputation is tied to Brokaw . . . If more women come forward, that’s a big problem.

Despite this disturbing account of the hostile pressure those women were subjected to, there was not a peep out of Stelter publically. On his Twitter account, the Brokaw situation was only mentioned twice: Once saying the story would be treated just like Sinclair and another time arguing that the Brokaw story led his newsletter once. On a side note, according to botcheck.me the account he was arguing with “exhibit[ed] patterns conducive to a political bot or highly moderated account tweeting political propaganda.”

But even with Stelter’s assurances, it would be treated like Sinclair, NBC’s pressure campaign didn’t even make it into his media newsletter Tuesday night. Of course, the seriousness of NBC’s corporate directive greatly overshadowed that of Sinclair since it involved sexual misconduct and not just a difference in political opinion. And as of the Publishing of this piece, Stelter still has yet to Tweet about the NBC pressure on its female staffers.

After Using His Son to Beg for Socialized Medicine, Jimmy Kimmel Silent as It Kills Baby Alfie

babybaby

A 23-month-old baby boy has died after he was held hostage by the British government against the wishes of his parents who may have been able to save his life. The denial of medical care to baby Alfie—which was being offered to him for free by doctors in Italy—happened, not out of some vile conspiracy to harm a child, but as a function of the British healthcare system.

“My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30. I love you my guy,” Tom Evans, Alfie’s father wrote on his Facebook page Saturday.

“Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am,” his mother Kate wrote. “We are heart broken. Thank you everyone for all your support.”

Alfie’s life began as a struggle and the toddler had been in a hospital since December of 2016 because of a rare degenerative neurological disorder. This year, the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, run by bureaucrats who are apparently more interested in saving money than saving lives, decided that Alfie’s life was no longer worth saving.

The Vatican hospital in Rome offered free medical care, with experimental treatments that are not offered in the UK, which could’ve saved Alfie’s life, and came at no expense to the UK government. However, the bureaucrats ruled that “all medical experts agreed that further treatment was futile and that it would be against Alfie’s best interests to travel to Italy.”

Alfie’s father had been attempting to appeal these rulings so the family could seek this treatment. But despite the fact that this would have come at no cost to the UK government or the hospital, they forced the family to stay in the UK.

Alfie was denied food by his “caregivers” at the hospital and his life came to a tragic and potentially preventable end this week as he was starved to death by the state. And, in spite of multiple protests from governments and political figures from around the world—including the Pope—no one will be held accountable because Alfie’s death was a function of the state.

“When we give the government the power to make medical decisions for us, we, in essence, accept that the state owns our bodies,” former Congressman Ron Paul once said. In their decision to refuse the parents the opportunity to treat their child as they wished, the British government made its point that it owns the bodies of its citizens.

But Alfie was sick and was going to die anyway, many people will claim. However, it should have been up to his parents—not the government—to decide Alfie’s fate.

Had Alfie been able to leave, as the case of Ashya King illustrates, he may be alive today. King, whose cancerous brain tumor earned him a similar death sentence, fled the U.K. with his parents and sought treatment, ultimately in the Czech Republic. Today, he’s cancer free.

Unfortunately, this system that effectively sentenced a baby to die is championed by many who claim that government should be in charge of medicine.

For example, talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue last year about his new son, who was born with severe heart defects requiring emergency surgery. At the end of it, he urged Americans to support the Affordable Care Act. This speech was picked up by media everywhere and repeatedly covered to push for the ACA.

Kimmel claimed that before 2014, “if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you’d never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition. You were born with a pre-existing condition and if your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not live long enough to even get denied because of a pre-existing condition.”

However, this is false. If parents have health insurance, their child would be covered. Also, the term “pre-existing condition” is used to describe uninsured chronically ill people who apply for insurance coverage, not for a child in need of immediate care like Kimmel’s son. What’s more, hospitals in the United States are legally obligated to provide emergency care to all patients—regardless of insurance status.

Kimmel then wrapped up his monologue stating, “If your baby is going to die and it doesn’t have to, it shouldn’t matter how much money you make.”

Indeed, it should not matter, but it also should not matter what the state tells you to do in regards to saving your baby’s life. And, the very system Kimmel proposed that night as he shilled for the ACA—which is a direct giveaway to big insurance companies (but another topic altogether)—is what forced a baby to die, even though he didn’t have to.

Where is Jimmy Kimmel now?

America’s health system is far from perfect. But for now, at least, babies are allowed to receive any treatment their parents wish, up to and including being able to leave the country and receive free care from the Vatican.

I Was Poisoned By Mercury: The Silent Heavy Metal Pandemic That Could Be Affecting You



Next Story

I was six years old when my mouth first became a well of metallic poison.

I remember the screech of the drill as it carved into my lower molar. My hands clutched the arms of reclining blue chair while my mother sat beside me in distress. I started crying and my dentist told me to be quiet, that it would all be over before I knew it—not the friendliest way to deal with a traumatized child— and afterwards I remember my mother saying that we’d never go back to him again.

I was relieved that I’d escaped the “pain monster” as I had deemed him, but the irony was that, little to my mother or I’s knowing then, the real monster had just taken root in my mouth, one that would soon wage a gradual, life-long war against my sanity.

Eventually I would discover the culprit of my mystery conditions (my depression, anxiety, brain fog, irritability, ADD)—a poisonous metal alloy cleverly guised under the name, “amalgam,” hiding in the shadowed craters of my mouth. But I wouldn’t discover the culprit before four other teeth were filled, and not before suffering for over two more decades.

I was poisoned by mercury, and I learned I’m not alone. Mercury and heavy metal toxicity is a silent pandemic that has found its way down through generations and generations of unlucky victims.

The problem with heavy metal toxicity is that it wrecks havoc on your system slowly. Over the years you experience various unpleasant symptoms such as allergies, memory and concentration problems, fatigue, depression, anxiety, digestion problems, mood disorders, etc., and while all of these symptoms are inconvenient, in the beginning they are not typically bad enough to seek outside assistance. Instead these symptoms fester and repeat day after day until you eventually accept the way you feel as normal.

And even if you were to go to the doctor, it would be extremely rare for any doctor to know that your symptoms are related to the fillings in your mouth or the seafood you eat every day. Heavy metal poisoning just isn’t talked about in the way that it should be, especially by the medical community who still hold onto the notion that mercury fillings are “safe and effective.”

A life plagued by mystery symptoms

It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when my mercury symptoms began. That’s one of the problems with mercury toxicity, its effects are so damaging and varying that any physical or emotional symptom you experience could be related to the mercury. Looking back on my life I wonder how many of my emotional and cognitive struggles were due to the metal poisons seeping into my system.

Throughout my teenage years I remember constantly feeling fearful and depressed. I also found it difficult to retain and understand what I read in books. As I moved into adulthood I found it more and more difficult to concentrate on my school work. Studying in college was a game of torture. I would read over something I was trying to memorize and feel like the information was just vanishing out of my mind. Anytime I would try to read my textbooks my eyes would jump all over the page in a scrambled mess making it difficult to fully understand what I was reading.

Mercury and other heavy metals accumulate all throughout the body.

These cognitive challenges got worse after college. I got a writing job at a media company, which was my dream job in many ways, but every time I sat down to write an article I would have to fight my brain to stop jumping from one internet tab to the next. My productivity suffered immensely, and eventually I accepted that I was just one of those millennials plagued with technology-induced ADD.

My brain fog got worse over the years, as did my ADD, eventually sabotaging my life-long dream to write a novel. During this period of my life I moved through bouts of depression on a weekly basis. I felt like I was slipping deeper and deeper into a dark vortex that I couldn’t escape from. I was constantly irritable with my partner, and began losing motivation for most things in my life. The way I described it to others was that it was as if I was living with a cloud over my head while I watched others around me laugh and experience joy. All I wanted was to be able to experience those states of joy as well, yet I had no idea why I couldn’t.

For decades I had no idea my brain was under siege by mercury.

The same year I began experiencing pain in my joints which I likened to early onset arthritis. I remember trying to get up from the couch and my hips and legs completely locking up for half-an-hour. I started experiencing constant injuries at the gym as if my bones had become brittle.

I wanted out of this mystery-symptom prison. I tried various modalities of healing, such as plant medicine retreats, sound healing, coaching, eating “healthy”, energy medicine, you name it. These only helped for a period of time before I would slip back into my depressive fog.

Medical Medium shines a light on my health issues

Soon my prayers for answers were granted when a friend of mine leant me a book called, “The Medical Medium.” In the book, the author (named Anthony Williams) tells his life story about how at a young age he started hearing a voice from a spirit who called itself the “Spirit of Compassion.” This spirit granted Anthony the ability to scan anyone near him and provide highly accurate information about their state of health. After helping thousands of people miraculously heal their mystery illnesses, Williams eventually compiled his knowledge in a book which called out the root cause of ‘chronic’ diseases such as Lupus, MS, Chronic Fatigue, ADD, and more.

Williams explained how there are four main factors contributing to most diseases today. He called them the “Unforgiving Four,” and they are: Viruses, DDT, radiation, and heavy metals.

All of this information struck a big chord in me. I quickly read through the book and stopped on the heavy metal section. Here Williams described how heavy metals accumulate throughout the body, mainly in the brain, causing a slew of neurological symptoms. As he listed them my body froze: ADHD, ADD, autism, depression, OCD, mood disorders, Alzheimer’s, focus, autoimmune diseases, allergies, food intolerance, gut dysbiosis, hormone imbalances, infertility, concentration and memory loss issues, and much more.

He then went on to reveal the main causes of heavy metal accumulation in the body. Seafood and vaccines were high up on the list. But the most devastating source? Mercury (Amalgam) fillings.

At this point I had a horrible feeling rising in my gut. I knew I was getting closer to the truth, so I typed ‘heavy metal toxicity’ into Google and discovered volumes of people’s real-life horror stories.

Mercury poisoning causes people to literally go ‘mad.’ For that reason many people call it “mercury madness.” Mercury and other heavy metals short-circuit our neurotransmitters and cause a wide range of neurological issues such as depression, ADHD/ADD, anxiety, mood disorders, and the list goes on.

Some coined what they experienced as “mercury madness,” and in most cases the stories of what people went through were far worse than what I experienced.

Some people were pushed to the brink of insanity due to their mercury poisoning. What began as gradual physical and psychological symptoms eventually escalated into a complete psychosis, to the point that many lost their jobs, marriages, and everything else important to them.

Some people reported spending hundreds of thousands of dollars hopping from specialist to specialist, trying to understand why they were so sick but only to feel as if they were losing their minds because no one had answers for them. But just when all hope was lost, somehow an angel on their shoulder would whisper the words “heavy metals,” leading them in the last-minute to discover the unsuspecting culprit to their sickness.

I thought back to all of my dental procedures as a child and the truth hit me like a fist in the gut. All these years I was being poisoned by the metal fillings in my mouth. All these years my quality of life was being disrupted, my happiness compromised, by mercury. This realization opened Pandora’s box as I began a deep dive into the history and damaging effects of mercury and other heavy metals.

Mercury passed down from generation to generation

As Anthony Williams the Medical Medium states, our exposure to mercury and other heavy metals began long before we were even born. Heavy metals are passed down the family line from our mothers and can be thousands of years old.

In the seventeen and eighteen hundreds, doctors would prescribe patients mercury elixirs which caused horrible side-effects. Many people went insane because of it. The worst part is that mercury and other heavy metals are passed down from mother to child and can stay in family lines for over a thousand years; many of us are still dealing with the impact of our ancestor’s mass poisoning today.

Anthony states that the older metals are the most dangerous because each succeeding generation becomes more intolerant to their oxidizing effects. This oxidation of the surrounding tissues causes inflammation, inflicting damage on virtually every system and organ, including our brain, liver, digestive system, and other parts of our nervous system. These metals also put an immense burden on our immune system, leaving us vulnerable to a variety of illnesses.

One of the most insidious ways that heavy metals made their way into our bodies happened during the seventeen and eighteen hundreds. Doctors would give mercury elixirs to patients suffering from anything as mild as a stomach ache to something more severe such as a broken leg. The effects were devastating, with many patients losing their families, their jobs, and their sanity. Today we are still suffering from the impact of our ancestor’s mass poisoning.

Mercury exposure today

The two primary sources of mercury exposure today are dental amalgams (mercury-based fillings) and seafood consumption, followed by thimerosal-containing vaccines and mercury pollution from coal-burning power plants.

Dental amalgams are composed of 50 percent elemental mercury. This form of mercury evaporates from the surface of the amalgam and is inhaled, absorbed into the blood, and then converted to inorganic mercury, the most toxic form of mercury to cells. Inorganic mercury builds up far more in your organs of elimination — it’s 100 times as high in your kidneys and liver than in your brain. But when it does make its way into your brain, it’s far more damaging than any other form.

Below is a chart showcasing other sources of mercury and heavy metal exposure:

Mercury binds to important trance minerals in our body

Mercury’s toxicity stems from its affinity for binding to other molecules in our body. Sulfur groups and their reduced forms known as ‘thiols’ are particularly under siege from mercury. Some important thiols in our body include cysteine and the super-antioxidant glutathione.

Mercury also binds to important trace minerals in our body such as zinc; this causes a depletion of nutrients crucial for proper cellular function. As the mercury leeches to available nutrients in the body, the body must then take important minerals from our own stores (such as our bones) to try to maintain homeostasis.

This is why most people suffering from mercury or heavy metal poisoning are severely malnourished.

The brain and digestive tract under siege

In his article, Revised Protocol for Detoxifying Your Body from Mercury Exposure , Dr. Mercola explains the damaging effects of what happens when mercury enters our system:

“Mercury vapour emitted from amalgams passes readily through our cell membranes, across our blood-brain barrier, and into our central nervous system where it causes immunological, neurological, and psychological distress.

Mercury destroys the cells in our gut, and since the gut is the frontline of our immune system, mercury toxicity almost always leads to digestive issues and autoimmune disorders.

At the same time, mercury is leaching into our saliva and being swallowed, making its way down our digestive tract where it causes inflammation and damages our immune system — because the frontline of our immune system is in our gut. 

Additionally, mercury shuts off the ability of our liver and kidneys to move mercury into our gut for elimination. So, if you have amalgams in your mouth, you are bathing your digestive tract and your brain in mercury every day, poisoning your brain while at the same time blocking its route out of the body.”

For this reason detoxing mercury and heavy metals is a long, sensitive and strategic process. Committing to a complete heavy metal detox will never be a quick fix solution. It is a lifestyle change in its entirety. It requires cleaning out our eliminative pathways, nourishing our body with raw, whole foods, and gently chelating the metals from your body over a long period of time. Later in this article I share my recommended protocol for the safe and effective removal of heavy metals from your system.

Detoxing mercury: How I learned the hard way

Heavy metal toxicity is not to be taken lightly. These elements are powerful antagonists which during their removal can cause more damage than good if the proper protocols aren’t followed.

I learned this the hard way.

Once I had read other people’s stories and knew that mercury fillings were the root cause of my suffering, I immediately found a holistic dentist to have them taken out. I had five fillings taken out within a month and half (which I would recommend doing slower), and soon after I jumped into a chelation protocol. It was a big mistake to rush the process, because immediately after I experienced a detox crisis that rocked my world.

Detoxing heavy metals can be dangerous is not done carefully. I learned this the hard way when I tried a chelating supplement after my amalgams were removed. I experienced a detox crisis that rocked my world. I was ridden with anxiety, depression, and insomnia for a few weeks after. In the end it was a humbling experience which taught me not to underestimate the heavy metal detox process. 

I tried taking a few supplements recommended by others called DMSA and alpha-lipoic acid, both of which are manmade supplements known for their powerful chelating abilities. These were recommended by those following the Andy Cutler protocol. Andy Cutler was a chemist who suffered from mercury poisoning and who went on to study mercury extensively and developed a chemical chelation protocol which he called “frequent-low-dose chelation.”  I had a terrible experience trying this method, and in the end it was a big lesson to stay far away from chemical supplements.

Severe brain fog, headaches, anxiety, insomnia—these were the symptoms that hit me over the head when I tried chelating mercury without a plan. I remember thinking how strange I felt during this period, like someone had taken over my body and mind. Soon after I fell into a terrible spiral in which I felt too depressed and unmotivated to try to help myself.

Interestingly, during this time I started craving heavier foods. For some reason my body wanted fat, and so I listened to that instinct and gorged. Afterwards the more severe detox symptoms lessened, and I realized that this was my body’s way of cushioning the dislodged metals in my system.

A few days later I was able to regain my bearings, but it was a humbling experience to say the least. After moving through my first acute mercury crisis I recognized that removing this ancient poison from my body was going to be a long process that required a deeper and more strategic commitment to my health.

The complete guide to detoxing mercury & other heavy metals

Step 1: Cleanse to open your eliminative pathways

Luckily for me, right around the time I had my amalgams taken out I had already been detoxing my body for about a month and a half.

I had just began my journey with the Mucusless Diet Healing System, a way of living that involves periods of fasting while eating primarily raw fruits and vegetables, as well as having regular enemas. (You can read more about the Mucusless Diet Healing System in my articles HERE and HERE.)

Before mercury detox can begin it’s imperative that you prepare the body through deep cellular cleansing. This should be done for at least a few months before getting your amalgam fillings removed. A diet high in fruit and raw vegetables is essential to open up your eliminative pathways. You will also want to eliminate all animal products as they will only further clog your eliminative organs.

So in short I had already begun the work of opening my eliminative pathways, especially my kidneys, liver, and colon, but even with having nearly two months of dedicated detox under my belt my body still struggled to remove the mercury without experiencing unpleasant symptoms.

This brings me to my first point.

Before anyone is to have their amalgams taken out, it is crucial that they do the work to prepare the body for the process. Mercury is insidiously toxic to our organs and cells. If we are already running with a toxic and overburdened system, then our body will not be able to safely pass these metals through our various eliminative channels. Instead they get stuck in places like our brain, liver, kidneys, and gut, where they will damage these organs and potentially make you very sick (and also crazy).

So the first order of business is to clean out your body.

For me, there is no better system of detoxification and regeneration than the Mucusless Diet Healing System. This system returns us to eating in the way our body was designed to consume food.

Seafood is one of the highest contamination sources of mercury today. The reason being is that mercury released from industrial processes or mercury circulating through our water supply finds its way into the ocean food chain, starting with plankton and working its way up to larger fish like tuna and swordfish.

It cleans out your eliminative channels, all the way down to the cellular level, and restores you back to a level of vitality and vibrancy you  experienced as a child. This lifestyle will quickly prepare your body for the safe removal of mercury and other toxins. Additionally, during this initial cleansing process you will naturally begin chelating heavy metals in your system, the only difference being that your body is doing it at a much slower and controlled pace.

It’s imperative to stop eating contaminated seafood in this period of cleansing as well. Larger fish such as tuna and swordfish are notoriously known to contain high levels of mercury and other heavy metals. The amalgam fillings need to be dealt with strategically, but cutting out seafood is a step that you can take right away.

I recommend being on a deep cleansing protocol (involving minimal to no animal products, high amounts of raw fruits and vegetables, regular enemas, and periods of dry fasting) for at least two to three months before getting your amalgam fillings removed. This will ensure your organs are ready to handle the toxic load that is inevitably released during the process.

If you are interested in learning more about living Mucus-Free or would like support in making this lifestyle change, email me at info@jeffrobertswrites.com.

Step 2: Remove the source of your heavy metal toxicity

Once you’ve prepared the body by cleaning up your diet and removing obstruction in your organs, the next imperative step is to have your amalgam fillings removed.

Amalgam removal must be done by a trained dentist. It requires special equipment to ensure the patient is exposed to the least amount of mercury as possible. I worked with a holistic dentist to have all five of my fillings removed and I was thankful to be in good hands. Even the smallest vapour of mercury can have detrimental effects on our system.

This should be done by a dentist experienced in amalgam removal. The process requires things like special suction equipment, an oxygen mask, and a cotton/rubber damn setup, all of which ensure the least amount of mercury exposure as possible.

As a side note, it’s also important that your dentist does a full set of dental x-rays to ensure there is no amalgam hidden underneath crowns or other fillings. Trying to chelate mercury from your body while still having amalgam fillings is only a way to torture yourself.

The day before and after your amalgams are to be removed, increase your fat intake by eating foods like avocado, tahini, brazil nuts, etc., as this will help bind excess mercury being released during the procedure.

Cruciferous vegetables are important to consume during a mercury detox, the reason being is due to their sulfur content, which has a high binding affinity to mercury.

Cruciferous vegetables (kale, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, arugula, radishes, bok choy) are especially important to begin eating every day if you aren’t already. The reason being is that these vegetables contain high levels of sulfur, which, as I mentioned earlier, has a binding affinity to mercury. On top of that cruciferous vegetables will also keep food debris moving through your GI tract.

Furthermore, consuming a special toxin binder is an absolute must during the amalgam removal process (and a long while after for that matter). My favourite toxin binder is from the Master Fast System. It’s composed of activated charcoal, psyllium husk, bentonite clay, and some water or grape juice to mix. This plasma pudding sucks up toxins as it moves through your GI tract and will help to reduce any unpleasant symptoms (headaches, mood swings, brain fog) brought on by the dislodged metals.

I recommend taking the pudding a few times a day around the time of your amalgam removal and then once in the evenings from there on out.

Step 3: Chelation and the ongoing detox process

Once your amalgams have been safely removed, give your body a grace period to deal with any mercury that may have been dislodged during the procedure.

Even a skilled dentist can’t prevent mercury from entering your system during the amalgam removal. Remember that mercury is toxic in extremely minute amounts, even a micro-vapour can cause substantial damage to the surrounding tissues. I recommend waiting at least one month (ideally 2-3) while practicing the Mucus-Free diet before beginning the more direct chelation protocol. Avoid being too eager and jumping into chelation right away, I did this and experienced serious physical and psychological consequences.

Once your grace period is over and you’ve given the body time to naturally chelate any excess metals, then it’s time to dive into a more focused chelation protocol.

The heavy metal detox smoothie by the medical Medium is one the best allies in removing mercury and other toxic metals in your body. The reason has to do with the unique blend of ingredients which actively dislodge heavy metals in hard to reach places and then binds to these toxins and holds on until they’ve been eliminated.

One of my most powerful allies in detoxing heavy metals is from the Medical Medium himself—appropriately titled the heavy metal detox smoothie. It contains a unique blend of plant-based ingredients which safely and efficiently pull heavy metals from the brain, organs, and tissues, but most importantly this team of ingredients hold onto the heavy metals until they are safely eliminated. Here is a little more about each ingredient in this smoothie:

Cilantro – Goes deep into hard-to-reach places, extracting metals from generations past. Using cilantro on its own to chelate can cause unpleasant symptoms as it will normally drop the picked-up heavy metals before they are eliminated, causing many serious side-effects.

Hawaiian spirulina – Unlike its clumsy cousin chlorella, this edible blue-green algae draws out heavy metals from your brain, central nervous system, and liver, and soaks up heavy metals extracted by barley grass juice extract powder.

Barley grass juice extract – Prepares the mercury for complete absorption by the spirulina. This nutritive grass has the ability to draw heavy metals out of your spleen, intestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and reproductive system.

Wild blueberries – Draw heavy metals out of your brain tissue, healing and repairing any gaps created by oxidation when the heavy metals are removed. It is important to use wild blueberries, as they possess unique phytonutrients with special detoxifying capabilities. The potent antioxidants in wild blueberries help reverse any oxidative damage left behind by the heavy metal removal. This is especially important for your brain tissue—in fact, wild blueberries are the most powerful food for halting or in some cases reversing Alzheimer’s and dementia. Eat at least one cup daily. Note: while cultivated blueberries are nutritious, they lack the metal-drawing ability of the wild blueberries. Wild blueberries can be found in the freezer section of most supermarkets.

Atlantic dulse – In addition to mercury, this edible seaweed binds to lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel. Unlike other seaweeds, Atlantic dulse is a powerful force for removing mercury on its own. Atlantic dulse goes into deep, hidden places of the digestive tract and gut, seeking out mercury, binding to it, and never releasing it until it leaves the body.

Together these ingredients are one of the safest and most powerful ways to detox heavy metals from the body. I try to have this smoothie every day (see the smoothie recipe below).

Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie

Ingredients:
2 bananas
2 cups wild blueberries
1 cup cilantro
1 cup orange juice or 2 navel oranges
1 tsp barley grass juice powder
1 tsp spirulina
1 small handful of Atlantic dulse
Optional: water to blend

Additional detox tools

I also recommend lemon enemas once a day for the first month of chelation. Lemon enemas strip toxins from the colon wall and help maintain regular bowel movements during detox.

Our colon is one of the primary pathways through which heavy metals eliminate, so if we aren’t having regular bowel movements, the toxins sit in the gut and recirculate through our blood. It may sound intimidating to do enemas regularly but I can attest that once you find your groove you will love them. They are an important tool to use during any detox period.

Tinctures offer glandular and organ support during detox. They will take your detox to an entirely new level.

Next on your ally list are tinctures. Herbal tinctures offer support for our organs during detox. Once we open Pandora’s box, toxins begin flooding our system and our organs can take a beating if it’s all happening too quickly.

Herbs purify our blood and lymph, and they support our various endocrine glands as well as our nervous system. I personally recommend Dr. Morse’s tinctures, especially the tinctures for liver support, kidney support, adrenal support, lymphatic support, and the brain and nervous system. He also carries a heavy metal detox tincture that can be used to dive deeper into the chelation process.

Remember that mercury and other heavy metals are buried all throughout the body, not just in the mouth. Over decades of exposure these heavy metals leech into our brain tissue, our gut, our bones, organs, hair, etc. Once we remove the primary source of mercury and heavy metal exposure, our body begins pulling the metals hidden in our deep tissues.

Breaking your fast with a juice gets your lymph fluid moving and opens up your eliminative channels for the day.

Breaking your morning fasts with a green juice or citrus juice is also a great way to open your detox pathways for the day. I usually do a citrus juice that includes grapefruit, orange, and lemon, which is amazing for moving the lymph and cleansing the liver and kidneys. Citrus fruits are also high in vitamin C which increases glutathione production. Glutathione is the master antioxidant; it protects the body from oxidation by binding to heavy metals. My green juices will usually include celery, lemon, cilantro and pineapple, all of which are amazing chelation allies.

Another important component to chelation is sweating. Our skin is another major eliminative pathway for heavy metals, so ensuring that we are sweating regularly will help speed up the healing process. Hot yoga, saunas (infrared or traditional), running, and rebounding are great ways to get your sweat on.

I’ve been applying all of these principles and protocols for the last three months and I’m feeling better everyday. One of the biggest factors to accept about this process is that there is no quick fix; you have to walk through the fire one step at a time and allow the body to purge its toxicity at a safe pace.

So for this reason and so much more, detoxification has become a way of life for me, and so much more than the physical aspects has unfolded since taking this journey. You can read more about this in my article, 5 Ways Your Life Transforms When You Go Mucus-Free.

Detoxing is an opportunity to heal your body in its entirety

All of what I’ve written about might seem like a lot to take in at once. You might be thinking, “I just want to get rid of the heavy metals, isn’t there an easier way?”

To that I say yes, there are other ways to chelate heavy metals. There are intravenous chelation therapies which have worked for some but which have also caused horrible side-effects for others. Then there is Andy Cutler’s protocol (frequent-low-dose-chelation) which involves taking manmade chemicals every three hours (night-time included) for up to years on end. I was considering doing this protocol for a while as I saw it worked for the community of people who committed to it, but the thought of having to get out of bed throughout the night to take a pill sounded terrible and unnatural in my opinion.

Beyond that, what I feel all of these chelation protocols fail to address is the body as a whole.

Detoxification isn’t just going in with an ice pick and hacking away at one specific poison.

Detoxification involves a complete preparation of mind, body and spirit for the birth of a new you. It is a regeneration on a cellular level.

I speak for nearly every person on the planet when I say that we are a degenerate species. We’ve stepped so far away from nature that our cells have mutated, our organs have become obstructed, our nervous system weakened to the point that we no longer have the capacity to detox in the way we were designed to detox environmental poisons. For this reason we can’t expect to remove these heavy metals without addressing all aspects of our health at the same time. Cellular detoxification, the process which I’ve outlined in this article, is the only foundation for true healing in my opinion.

I always say, if you aren’t ready to make the changes necessary to heal your body, then you haven’t suffered enough. You haven’t suffered enough to let go of the things that are causing you pain and suffering, otherwise you would take the leap.

Many of us are attached to our disease label or story; it’s become a part of our identity to the point that we don’t want to let go of it. If this is where you are, honour your choice and know that you will be ready eventually. But if you are ready to let go of your suffering once and for all and experience new heights of living, then get ready for the joy and bliss you’ve been waiting for your whole life.

For those wanting assistance throughout this process, I offer one-on-one detox support to help make the process as smooth as possible. You can visit my website jeffrobertswrites.com or reach out to me personally at info@jeffrobertswrites.com.

Independent witnesses report silent ghost plane over Ripley, UK which ‘turned the sky dark’

Was a ghost plane really seen in Derbyshire's skies?

    

Separate reports of a mysterious ghost plane have emerged in Derbyshire where witnesses have seen a dark, silent shape’ sweep across the sky.

Onlookers have stated they have seen a dark shape in the sky at around 6.45pm on Monday night at different locations across the county.

Mark O’Brien believes he saw a quiet, low-flying plane fly above him after picking his daughter up from her swimming lesson in Ripley.

He said: “It was so low, it must have been only been around two or three houses high. I thought it was going to crash at one point but it was large and very quiet.

“I remember it flying above me and my heart stopping for a second. It looked like an old World War Two plane but it was dark so I couldn’t make it out.

“I panicked because I thought it was coming down on the houses near Ashford Rise which is near my house. There was no noise or smoke. It just flew off and disappeared between some nearby trees.

“I came into work today and told my colleagues about what had happened, thinking they would expect me to be crazy.

Dozens more sightings of silent ghost plane over Derbyshire

“But one of them said they had saw the plane as well fly around Heage. It’s so weird really but I know quite a lot of people have seen them before”.

Lyndsey Taylor, of Barnsley, claims to have seen two ghost planes at the same time as Mr O’Brien, only this time near the village of Hope, in the Derbyshire Peak District.

She said: “The whole thing was really weird, we were driving towards Bamcroft when the radio suddenly lost all signal and the sky just went really dark.

“All of a sudden this huge old aeroplane flew straight over our heads, completely silent and was heading for the ground.

“My partner and daughter both saw the same thing. We thought it was going to crash, but then it just disappeared.

“Seconds later we saw what looked like the same aircraft, this time to our left, and it banked over on its side and looked as though it was going to crash before disappearing.

“There is no way a real plane could have had the speed or the height to pull out of it, but we heard no crash at all.

“The plane looked really old with propellers and was green.

“The whole thing lasted a couple of seconds and before we knew it, it was all over and it had got brighter again.

“I don’t know if there is such a thing as a ghost plane, but I cant think what else it can be.”

Pam Orridge said the news of the new sightings prompted her to remember a sighting from a few years ago.

She said: “My son and I were driving along the A6 towards Rowsley from Darley Dale.

“We had just passed Church Road on our left and well before Arconic Forgings and Extrusion also on the left.

“Suddenly in front of us was an aircraft flying very low towards us.

“So low we thought it would crash into us but then it banked sideways and disappeared.

“We could not identify the aircraft other than it was old because it happened so quickly and left us quite shocked.”

Media Silent as Trump Administration Gives Power Over Gun Control to Federal Agencies

gungun

The Trump Administration has announced its support for a number of measures involving gun control, and not surprisingly, the mainstream media has chosen to highlight the measure that would have little effect, while ignoring the administration’s support for a bill that would have a devastating impact on the Second Amendment.

CNBC’s headline said, “Trump gun proposal skips age limits, focuses on teaching educators how to use guns instead,” and BBC News went with “Trump drops calls to raise guns age limit.” The media’s coverage has relied heavily on the idea that if the legal minimum age requirement for gun purchases was raised from 18 to 21, then it may have an effect on stopping mass shootings—without taking any other legitimate factors into consideration.

“On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting. States are making this decision,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly).”

However, while the media focused on Trump’s response to age requirements, they ignored the support he pledged for one of the most egregious bills being considered by Congress. H.R. 4477, the Fix NICS Act, states that it would amend the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to “require each federal agency and department, including a federal court, to certify whether it has provided to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) disqualifying records of persons prohibited from receiving or possessing a firearm.”  

As The Free Thought Project reported in December, the Fix NICS Act will pressure federal agencies and states to report as many names as possible to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, “making it only a matter of time before this list becomes so large that nearly any activity could serve to remove your Second Amendment rights.”

Although versions of the bill have been proposed in both the Senate and the House, and have received support from Republicans, Democrats and even the National Rifle Association, Rep. Thomas Massie warned that Congress will try to pass the Fix NICS Act by rolling it into another bill that looks harmless.

Congress first tried to accomplish this in late 2017 by including the Fix NICS Act in H.R. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which states that its purpose is to amend “the federal criminal code to allow a qualified individual to carry a concealed handgun into or possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows individuals to carry concealed firearms.”

When that bill was stalled, they shifted their attention to H.R. 4909, the STOP School Violence Act, which is supposed to be voted on this week. Massie warned that the supporters of the Fix NICS Act will use the STOP School Violence Act to “sugar coat it,” in order to obtain their original objective.

Rep. Massie summed up the FIX NICS Act by noting that it encourages administrative agencies, not the courts, to submit more names to a national database that will determine whether you can or can’t obtain a firearm.

“When President Obama couldn’t get Congress to pass gun control, he implemented a strategy of compelling, through administrative rules, the Veterans Administration and the Social Security Administration to submit lists of veterans and seniors, many of whom never had a day in court, to be included in the NICS database of people prohibited from owning a firearm,” Massie said. “Only a state court, a federal (article III) court, or a military court, should ever be able to suspend your rights for any significant period of time.”

While Trump took to Twitter to claim that a “very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks will be fully backed by White House,” he failed to mention that the legislation to implement background checks has serious flaws, and its consequences go far beyond his time in office.

Now that the Trump Administration has officially pledged its support for the Fix NICS Act, and the mainstream media has done the same by refusing to report on the blatant problems that exist within the legislation, it serves as a reminder that the real divide exists—not between Democrats and Republicans, but between the establishment and the people.

The Silent Majority Is Asking Questions-False Flag Events Will be the Answer

America is slowly, but surely awakening from its slumber and the gross ignorance about the danger posed by the Deep State. Even the American that is ignorant of what we do in the Independent Media, do not like the direction that the country has taken. The “silent majority” as Richard Nixon called them, are voting, with their feet, against the tyranny of the New World Order. The silent majority is beginning to ask questions. The globalists have heard them and have already prepared their answers.

America used to have a love affair with Hollywood. The idolatry was sickening and the money the starts make is undeserved and disgusting. Hollywood now champions every perversion (eg child trafficking) and every anti-American attitude known to man. Hollywood has long been used to shape public opinion and set trends in society that matches the direction the the so-called elite want to take the masses. This is not true any more, movie-going is at a 25 year low. The Oscars had the lowest ratings ever.

The “elite” were scambling so much that they could not even think of a coherent explanation to describe the preciptous drop in ratings. The intellectual giant, Jimmy Kimmell said it was America’s fault that the Oscar Ratings were so low. What? I am still scratching my head on that one. In short, many of the silent majority are saying no to the direction that Hollywood wants to take the country.

In another development, we see more evidence that people who have never heard of the New World Order are turning their backs on the lunatic liberals and the direction that they are plotting to take the country. As a case in point, CNN’s ratings are lower than the Home and Garden Network.

The silent majority is voting with their feet. they are disgusted by the ultra-liberalism of the left. They are disgusted by the fact that these lunatics are not willing to do one thing to make our school children any safer. They read about laws that can send people to jail for failing to acknowledge that there are now 97 separate declared genders and in places like California, anyone who persists in defining the human race as a two-gender species, risks going to jail.

The silent majority is tired of the media attacks upon the family, the church and upon their conservative belief systems. What used to be considered perversions is championed as a preferred life-style. Jesus is not real and perverts and law-breakers deserve special protection under the new laws.

The silent majority has awakened to the fact that conservative points of view, which most Americans stil align with, are being censored by Youtube, Facebook and Twitter.  Over 34% of Millennials have terminated their Facebook accounts. Viewership on Youtube has leveled off. People are seeking alternatives to the extreme liberalism and censorship practices of the left.


IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT MOST OF THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE REJECTING THE PHILOSOPHIES OF THE LUNATIC LEFT HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THE DEEP STATE AND THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF ALEX JONES, STEVE QUAYLE AND DAVE HODGES. THEY ARE JUST SICK AND TIRED OF BEING RULED BY PERVERTS AND THEIR MINIONS.


 

Z Brzezinski, the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller, former President Obama Soviet Studies professor, and former President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor stated “It is easier to kill a million” wrote a book in 1970 that accurately predicted the struggles that America faces today. The “easier to kill a million” comment marked a shift in globalist thinking. In order to defeat the rising tide of global populism a devastating world war  and/or a series of catastrophic false flag attacks are the only remaining option  to people’s desire for the right to self-determination. Seven years  after Brzezinski’s infamous quote, the prophetic nature of the quoted comment speaks to what is coming.

The silent majority, in increasing numbers, are discovering the Independent Media. We are helping to make sense of the moral dilemmas that these newly awakened people find themselves in. The globalists know this and they need to head off this populist movement where the former mechanisms of propaganda are no loner having the desired effect. Therefore, the sleeping giant must be killed before it full awakens. How do you kill an awakening sleeping giant? You kill it through starting a nuclear war and/or unleashing a series of devastating false flag attacks.

Every member of the Independent Media can sense that something very big is about to happen. The awakening of the silent majority must be thwarted. The people must be sufficiently frightened so they will retreat into survival mode and this is where the globalists do their best work!

I may have some insight about what is coming in the near-term in order to deflect the rising tide of populism.

Approximately 30 days ago, I received an email that claimed that a passenger aboard to a Frontier Airlines plane with about 60 passengers witnessed what was a Beta test for a terrorist takeover of a plane. I did not pay much attention at the time and I have forgotten some of the details. However, what do I remember is contained the following facts:

  1. Shortly into the flight, the Captain, against FAA regulations, exited the pilots cockpit with a firearm attached to his hip and used the bathroom.
  2.  His co-pilot later emerged and he was from the Middle East.

This was a stand-alone email and I dismissed it as unsubstantiated oberservations which may, or may not, have been accurately interpreted. I deleted the email, but yesterday, I received another which paralleled the fist one. Here is the account:

Hey Dave, 

Why would I jump to such conclusions? It is simple. With the majority of the country on the verge of awakening, the globalists need a game changer. A war does not seem as likely given the developments in Korea and the fact that Putin is not escalating Russian military aggression to a threatening level. Therefore, I think we are in for a series of devastating false flag attacks. I think these two flights are merely a small microcosm of what is coming our way. It is now easier to kill a million than to control a million.
