  • 4 New Raw Milk Lies Big Dairy Wants You to Believe

    https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2024/05/16/lies-against-raw-milk.aspx The USDA recently announced they confirmed avian flu virus in milk, and warned against drinking raw milk (supposedly pasteurized milk is okay?). But is this true - and is it hazardous to consume raw milk, otherwise known as 'Nature's perfect food'? The truth may surprise you. Raw Milk at the Crossroads, Again Analysis by Sally Fallon Morell STORY AT-A-GLANCE The campaign against raw milk began with a fabricated 1945 article in Coronet magazine claiming a deadly brucellosis outbreak in a nonexistent town, leading to restrictive laws against raw milk starting in Michigan in 1948 A 2007 PowerPoint presentation by an FDA official falsely maligned raw milk using flawed reports; none of these reports proved pasteurization would have prevented alleged outbreaks The 2024 USDA announcement attributed symptoms in dairy cows to avian flu without confirmed viral presence in milk, relying on questionable PCR testing methods Despite claims, there is no peer-reviewed evidence supporting transmission of highly pathogenic avian influenza from raw milk to humans While pasteurization is promoted as making milk safe, the actual diversion or destruction of milk from infected animals suggests that pasteurization may not guarantee safety ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Few of us were born when the forces for milk pasteurization launched the first major attack on Nature's perfect food. In 1945, a magazine called "Coronet" published an article, "Raw Milk Can Kill You," blaming raw milk for an outbreak of brucellosis in a town called Crossroads, U.S.A., killing one-third of the inhabitants. The "Reader's Digest" picked up the story and ran it a year later. Just one problem with this piece of "reporting." There was no town called Crossroads and no outbreak of brucellosis. The whole story was a fabrication — otherwise known as a lie. And lies about raw milk have continued ever since. Unfortunately, the fictitious Crossroads story paved the way for laws against selling raw milk, starting with Michigan in 1948. Here's another example of lies against raw milk (which I referenced in an earlier post,1 but it is worth repeating). In 2007, John F. Sheehan, BSc (Dy), JD, US Food and Drug Administration, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (USFDA/CFSAN), Division of Dairy and Egg Safety, prepared a Powerpoint maligning raw milk; it was presented to the 2005 National Conference on Interstate Milk Shipments (NCIMS) by Cindy Leonard, MS.2 As shown in the table below, all of the fifteen reports associating outbreaks of foodborne illness with raw milk that Sheehan cites are seriously flawed. For example, in two of the fifteen, the study authors presented no evidence that anyone consumed raw milk products and in one of them, the outbreak did not even exist. Not one of the studies showed that pasteurization would have prevented the outbreak. Fast forward to the present and the ruckus about bird flu in dairy cows — more lies, very clever lies, but lies nevertheless. In a press release dated March 25, 2024,3 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state veterinary and public health officials, announced investigation of "an illness among primarily older dairy cows in Texas, Kansas, and New Mexico that is causing decreased lactation, low appetite, and other symptoms." The agencies claim that samples of unpasteurized milk from sick cattle in Kansas and Texas have tested positive for "highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI)." Officials blame the outbreak on contact with "wild migratory birds" and possibly from transmission between cattle. The press release specifically warns against consumption of raw milk, a warning repeated in numerous publications and Internet postings. According to the press release, national laboratories have confirmed the presence of HPAI (Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza) through testing, but it does not reveal the type of test used to detect this so-called viral illness. Lie No. 1: Researchers Have Found HPAI Virus in the Milk of Sick Cows Officials have NOT found any viruses in the milk or any other secretions of the sick cows. The CDC has yet to reply to repeated requests for proof of finding the isolated HPAI virus in any fluid of any sick chicken or other animal.4 Nor have health and agriculture agencies in Canada,5 Japan,6 the UK7 and Europe8 provided any proof of an isolated avian influenza virus. As for all the studies you can find in a PubMed search claiming "isolation" of a virus, not one of them shows the true isolation of a virus, any virus, from the fluids (phlegm, blood, urine, lung fluids, etc) of any animal, bird or human.9 The truth is that "viruses" serve as the whipping boy for environmental toxins, and in the confinement animal system, there are lots of them — hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, methane and ammonia from excrement, for example.10 Then there are toxins in the feed, such as arsenic added to chicken feed, and mycotoxins, tropane and β-carboline alkaloids in soybean meal.11 By blaming nonexistent viruses, agriculture officials can avoid stepping on any big industry toes nor add to the increasing public disgust with the confinement animal system. Way back in 2006, researchers Crowe and Englebrecht published an article entitled, "Avian flu virus H5N1: No proof for existence, pathogenicity, or pandemic potential; non-'H5N1'z causation omitted."12 Nothing has changed since then. Here's your homework assignment: Contact USDA at Aphispress@usda.gov and ask them to provide proof of the isolation of the HPAI virus or any virus in the milk of the sick cattle. Lie No. 2: National Laboratories Have Confirmed the Presence of HPAI Through Testing They don't say anything about the kind of test they used, but it almost certainly the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test. The PCR test detects genetic material from a pathogen or abnormal cell sample and allows researchers to make many copies of a small section of DNA or RNA. The test was not designed to determine or diagnose disease, it was designed to amplify or increase a certain piece of genetic material. Each "amplification" is a doubling of the material. If you amplify thirty times you will get a negative; amplify 36 times or more, and you will get a positive. At 60 amplifications, everyone will "test positive" for whatever bit of genetic material you believe can cause disease.13 If you want to show that you have a pandemic brewing, just amplify, amplify, amplify. Folks, this is not a valid test, not good science by any stretch of the imagination — especially as there was no virus to begin with. How many times did our health officials amplify the samples they obtained from the milk of the sick cows? Be sure to ask them when you email Aphispress@usda.gov for proof of the virus. Lie No. 3: The 'Virus' Is Highly Pathogenic According to the "Wall Street Journal," one — just one — person working in the dairies got sick and tested positive for avian influenza after exposure to dairy cattle presumed to be infected with the H5N1 bird flu.14 The person reported eye redness, or conjunctivitis, as his only symptom — a symptom that can be explained by exposure to any of the many airborne toxins in confinement dairies. (How are they treating the illness? With vitamin A and herbal eyedrops? No, the poor sod is getting treatment with a toxic antiviral drug.) According to the CDC, the disease in humans ranges from mild infections, which include upper-respiratory and eye-related symptoms, to severe pneumonia. If the "virus" is so highly pathogenic, we'd expect a lot of workers working around these sick cows to end up in the hospital ... but we've heard of none so far. Lie No. 4: You Can Get Avian Fly From Drinking Raw Milk, but Pasteurized Milk Is Safe According to medical biologist Peg Coleman,15 "Recent risk communications from CDC, FDA, and USDA regarding transmission of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus or HPAI (subtype H5N1) to humans via raw milk include no supporting evidence of viral transmission from raw milk to humans in the peer-reviewed literature. An extensive body of scientific evidence from the peer-reviewed literature ... does not support the assumption by these US government agencies that [nonexistent] HPAI transmits to humans via milkborne or foodborne routes and causes disease. Nor does the scientific evidence support the recommendation that consumers should avoid raw milk and raw milk products [emphasis in the original]."16 Coleman notes the suite of bioactive components in raw milk, including bovine milk, that destroy pathogens and strengthen the gut wall. "Many of these bioactive components of raw milk are ... sensitive to heat and may be absent, inactive, or present in lower concentrations in pasteurized milks. Cross-disciplinary evidence demonstrates that raw milk from healthy cows is not inherently dangerous, consistent with the CDC evidence of trends for 2005-2020 and evidence of benefits and risks. There is no scientific evidence that HPAI in raw milk causes human disease." And while USDA, FDA and CDC assure the public that pasteurization will make milk safe, they note that "Milk from infected animals is being diverted or destroyed," implying that pasteurization alone does not guarantee safety. In any event, sales of industrial pasteurized milk continue their relentless decline. Fortunately, raw milk drinkers are already skeptical of government pronouncements and are skilled at seeing through lies. Both large and small raw milk dairy farms report that sales are booming. The current bird flu fracas is just another Crossroads, U.S.A., a bunch of lies fostered by a dishonest dairy industry taking aim at the competition.

  • Pfizer just agreed to settle 10,000-plus Zantac cancer lawsuits – but it did it QUIETLY hoping nobody would notice

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2024-05-14-pfizer-settles-10000-zantac-cancer-lawsuits.html You probably missed it since barely anybody is reporting on it, but Pfizer, unbeknownst to the vast majority of America, just settled more than 10,000 lawsuits linking Pfizer's antacid drug Zantac (famotidine) to cancer. Zantac has been on the market since 1983, if you can believe it. It was originally manufactured by Glaxo Holdings Ltd, a company now owned by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Zantac eventually became Pfizer's deal between 1998 and 2006, though the company is probably wishing it never signed up to be a producer of the drug. According to reports, both over-the-counter (OTC) Zantac and prescription Zantac are loaded with a carcinogenic substance called NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine) at levels far, far above the acceptable level. "Patients consumed more than 300,000 nanograms of NDMA through each tablet," one report explains. "The acceptable level of NDMA is only 96 nanograms per day. Taking a single tablet of Zantac meant taking 3,000 times the recommended dose of NDMA." Even when consumed in very small amounts, NDMA can cause serious illnesses. Combined with the fact that Zantac affects gut health, including the permeability of the absorption membranes, Pfizer has a lot of blood on its hands. (Related: Have you seen the proof from both the FDA and Pfizer showing that Wuhan coronavirus [COVID-19] "vaccine" shedding is more real than you might have thought?) Lawsuit settlements don't entirely cover Pfizer's exposure to Zantac While the agreements concerning all these cases cover state courts all across the United States, they do not completely resolve Pfizer's exposure to Zantac claims, this according to people familiar with the matter who spoke to Bloomberg on the condition of anonymity. Concerns about Pfizer's exposure to Zantac claims helped nosedive the company's market value by $45 billion in combined market value in the summer of 2022. Pfizer's share price has since recovered, at least for now. "Pfizer has explored and will continue to explore opportunistic settlements of certain cases if appropriate, and has settled certain cases," the New York-based company said in a statement. "The company has not sold a Zantac product in more than 15 years and did so only for a limited period of time." The reason Pfizer is on the hook for all this is because the company allegedly hid the cancer risks of Zantac from patients. Untold millions of people became injured or died, in other words, and Pfizer ran away with the loot. While this spate of Zantac lawsuit settlements might not be enough to take down the drug behemoth entirely, keep in mind that Pfizer has a whole lot of restitution still to be paid for all of the harm caused by its many other drugs, including most notably its mRNA (modRNA) Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) "vaccines." "Apple cider vinegar (organic with the mother) alleviates heartburn and acid reflux naturally," wrote "T." (@tswarbrock) on X. "It balances pH and alkaline levels in the body. Add 1-2 tablespoons to 8oz filtered water and sip. ACV also clears infection and is antifungal." "They should rename it as Zantac vaccine," joked another, making the point through humor that vaccines generally skip the normal regulatory approval process as they are rushed to market at warp speed. "Problem solved!" "How about all the victims of the clot shots?" asked another. By God's grace, the pharmaceutical industry will eventually come toppling down into a ruinous heap.

  • The practice of "toe tagging", meaning marked for death and OK to let DIE, discussed at The Scottish Covid Inquiry. (2 min, 15 sec)

    The asinine Scottish Government told paramedics to mark anyone over 70 as not worthy of life & therefore not to receive treatment. Discussions then took place about reducing this age limit to anyone over 50.

  • Prof. Mattias Desmet: Truth connects people’s souls; sincere speech will overcome totalitarianism

    https://expose-news.com/2024/05/15/truth-connects-peoples-souls/ Truth is the only remedy for a society sick of lies. It connects people from soul to soul.  As such truth is the real cure for the loneliness and disconnectedness that makes modern human beings so vulnerable to propaganda. As soon as the group connected through sincere speech is energetically stronger than the propagandised masses, the era of totalitarianism is over. SUBSCRIBE Propaganda, Sincere Speech, and the Intuition of the Samurai By Professor Mattias Desmet Here is one of the big questions of our times: What can we believe? As the space for open-minded conversation and non-conformist opinion shrivels in our society, answering this question gets increasingly difficult. Swarms of “digital first responders” anonymously ridicule and criminalise dissident opinions on social media, machine learning technology identifies and suppresses online narratives that go against the mainstream, search engine algorithms guide people inconspicuously to politically correct answers to all their questions, and so on. The battle for the hearts and minds of the people rages more fiercely than ever – we truly live in the era of propaganda. And we live in the era of artificial intelligence (“AI”).  AI generates chatbots, artificial images, and deep fake videos that can put the innocent in bad daylight and make the guilty go free; it writes master theses for sneaky students and poems for lazy lovers; it creates a “woke” version of history with a radical contempt for facts. Humanity gets lost in a world of manufactured falsehood. Who will protect society from censorship and falsehood? Journalism maybe? Walter Lippmann won two Pulitzer Prizes and is considered the father of modern journalism (see Stiles, 2022, p. 28). It is telling that he favoured a technocratic model of journalism in which “experts” must construct narratives about every major news event and subsequently feed them to editors and journalists. Here is a quote from Lippmann’s book ‘Public Opinion’: “Public opinion must be organised for the press if they are to be sound, not by the press as is the case today.” This quote says as much as this: Forget the free press. It was written in 1922. Lippman is said to be the most influential journalist of the 20th century. Ever wondered why media articles around the world all look a bit similar? Now you have an idea why. The army of fact-checkers claiming to fight “fake news” are part of this problem as well. These “ambassadors of truth” have little to do with truth. A few years after the corona crisis, we know that even better than before. The origin of the virus, the mortality of the virus, the efficacy of the vaccines and the safety of the vaccine – the fact-checkers promoted fake news and fought correct information. It’s clear to everyone who wants to see it: They are a veritable Orwellian Ministry of Truth. What is truly mind-boggling, however, is that even when “experts” such as Gates and Fauci admit that the vaccine didn’t stop the spreading of the virus, even when the experts of Imperial College admit the mortality rates of the virus were far lower than their models predicted, a major part of the population doesn’t really want to hear it. Never in history is it demonstrated so convincingly that indeed, the most fundamental passion of the human being is not love, not hate, but the passion for ignorance. Upon closer consideration, the problem of deception in society is far more complex than just a bunch of manipulative propagandists who mislead the guileless population. It seems that most people don’t care too much about being deceived. They even seem to admire those who deceive them. It makes me think about this quote from Hannah Arendt: “The totalitarian mass leaders based their propaganda on the correct psychological assumption that, under such conditions, one could make people believe the most fantastic statements one day, and trust that if the next day they were given irrefutable proof of their falsehood, they would take refuge in cynicism; instead of deserting the leaders who had lied to them, they would protest that they had known all along that the statement was a lie and would admire the leaders for their superior tactical cleverness.” And even more: In the final analysis, there is a little propagandist and manipulator in all of us. And it is so skilled, that it succeeds in deceiving ourselves. As a human being, we constantly hide behind what I would call “the veil of appearances.” We constantly hide certain aspects of who we are from others, we constantly try to conform to all kinds of ideal images that circulate in society. And in the end, we believe that we are the illusion we created ourselves – we fall prey to the deceptive nature of our ego. This applies in the first place to the act of speech. We are censored by others indeed, yet before others censor us, we already censored ourselves. In the end, we speak words of which we don’t realise anymore that they are not our words but just hollow echoes from the matrix of social forms in which our being is absorbed. Can we find the way out of this labyrinth of deception? Is there such a thing as Truth? And can we find it in this world of falsehood and illusions? Quite a lot of people have tried to define strategies to deal with the plague of propaganda in our society, (see also Stiles, 2022), yet the problem seems to me that they usually ignore the fundamental complicity of the human ego in the game of deception. And as such, they are by and large ineffective. Please allow me to summon an archetype which is being banned in our culture – the archetype of the warrior. A warrior always stands with one leg in the land of death. Truth is wandering around in this land. Samurai and ninja culture showed us an interesting relationship between truth on the one hand and intuition on the other. And I believe this relationship is relevant because it comes to finding a solution for the problem of propaganda and totalitarianism. For the samurai the martial arts boiled down to this: To develop the capacity to discern truth from lie. The movements of the martial arts are linguistic in nature. Sometimes they lie, and sometimes they speak the truth. The sword in the right hand attracts attention – the dagger in the left hand strikes. He who can discern truth from lies survives on the battlefield, he who can’t, dies. One doesn’t survive on the battlefield by looking with his eyes. Our eyes see a world of appearances; they are easily tricked. What really matters is zanshin, a kind of awareness of the world around you which is not based on ordinary sensory perception. The entire art of the samurai aimed to develop this potential – the sixth sense of the warrior. Whether or not a student in the martial arts had developed his intuition well enough was tested in samurai culture through the sakki or godan test. The candidate kneels, a grandmaster positions behind him outside of his field of vision. The grandmaster waits for some time and then strikes suddenly, aiming for the neck of the candidate. If the candidate’s intuition is well developed, he will move away at exactly the right moment, if not, he loses his head. Nowadays this test is done using wooden swords (‘boken’) but it used to be done on the razor’s edge. By the way: Akira Kurosawa showed a variant of this test in his timeless cinematographic masterpiece ‘Seven Samurai’. How did the samurai develop this intuition? The intuition of the warrior is related to the act of speech. Unlike Plato, samurai culture believed that the pen and the sword should be wielded by the same hand. Samurai practised the art of speech. And one of the elementary principles of this art was sincerity (see for instance the principles of Budo according to Saitõ Chikamori). We can roughly distinguish between two types of speech: speech from the ego and speech from what we might call the soul. The ego is an imaginary structure, based on identifications with outer ideal images. When we speak from the ego, we do not really articulate what we feel or experience inside. We rather say what we think we have to say to be accepted by others and society. Such speech keeps up appearances. It makes us win something at the level of our ego yet it also comes with a price – we slowly lose touch with the essence of who we are. And it also makes us lose touch with the world around us. Ego-speech focuses our attention and psychological energy on the outer ideal images, on the surface of our being. It literally makes the psychological “shell” thicker. In this way, we get isolated inside this ego-shell and stop resonating with the world around us. In other words: our zanshin or intuition gets weaker. What is the alternative to ego-speech? Inside the shell of the ego, there is something which in religious and mystical traditions, and in some intellectual traditions as well, is referred to as the soul. “The soul” seems to be an obsolete concept, yet in many respects, it is a fruitful one. It refers to an inner essence, something that is inside an outer form. From a psychological point of view, speaking from the soul means to give voice to those things that we truly feel or experience; those things that are usually hidden behind the ideal images. It means saying those things that are not in line with the matrix of social ideal images, dogmas and norms. Such speech makes us vulnerable, it puts us at risk of excommunication and rejection, in particular when we practise it in the presence of people who use the world of appearances as their major stronghold. Opposite of ego speech, sincere speech makes us lose something in the world of appearances and it makes us win something in the real world. It is a kind of speech that emerges from within and literally penetrates through the outer ideal image we hide behind. It quite literally pierces holes in the ego. And through these holes, a new resonating connection between our essence and that of the world around us can emerge. It is at this level that we can situate the phenomenon of truth. This might seem abstract, yet it isn’t. Just try it. Share something that makes you feel vulnerable, something you usually hide from the world, with some trustworthy people. You will immediately feel a deeper connection – from soul to soul. You can sense it almost physically. Practice the art of sincere speech day after day, week after week, month after month, try to make progress step by step, and your intuition will improve step by step. It is at this level that we can understand the connection between sincere speech and the intuition of the samurai – sincere speech makes you aware of the world around you beyond ordinary sensory perception. Sincere speech makes your soul resonate with the world around you – indeed. From a subtle materialistic perspective, for which physicist Erwin Schrödinger laid the foundations in his book ‘What is Life?’ (see Berkovich, 2003 and Van Lommel, 2011, p. 286), we could consider the human body as a vibrating substance, which resonates with the frequencies of the world around it. And through the vocal apparatus, the human being can creatively return the music to the universe with a singular touch. The samurai was very well aware of exactly this: what kills you on the battlefield, ultimately, is not so much the sword or arrow of your enemy, it is your own ego. And what makes you powerless against propaganda, is not so much the propaganda itself, it is your ego. It makes you incapable of discerning between truth and deception and it makes your voice hollow and weak and incapable of creating the connection with others that is necessary to make propaganda powerless. Truth is the only remedy for a society sick of lies. It connects people from soul to soul, as strings vibrating on the same frequency. And as such it is the real cure for the loneliness and disconnectedness that makes modern human beings so vulnerable to propaganda (see Jacques Ellul’s concept of the lonely mass). As I said before, as soon as the group connected through sincere speech is energetically stronger than the propagandised masses, the era of totalitarianism is over. Not sooner, not later. In this respect, the only way to contribute to the solution of the big crisis of our society is to face our shadow and overcome our own individual crisis and trauma, which means to transcend our ego through sincere speech.
