Anti-logic: the education plague

Anti-logic: the education plague

by Jon Rappoport

February 5, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

In all times and places, logic is never taught to the masses. There is no intention to do so.

Now, in our “egalitarian society,” education carries with it great PR pretension, a fakery that outflanks any other period in history.

Therefore, graduating students wrongly believe they know how to think.

In my latest collection, Power Outside The Matrix, I include a long audio tutorial, Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation, which is all about carrying out deep investigations of major official scenarios/stories, and discovering how and where these official structures can be penetrated, taken apart, and unfolded, so all their flaws and deceptions are exposed.

This training is meant to remedy the deep hole people find themselves in, when they go up against entrenched (or even alternative) “knowledge.”

For example, there is a particular logical fallacy I call: “this means that.”

It runs rampant throughout society. The fallacy bleeds into the reasoning process, into notions of self-worth, into people’s need to identify themselves with an “acceptable” position.

Take the concept of manmade global warming. For many people, affirming this as a reality means:

“I’m defending the sacred quality of life on Earth, I’m helping the planet, I’m exposing the nasty crimes of big corporations, I’m acknowledging and shining a spotlight on the selfish and petty actions of the masses, I’m in the vanguard of recognizing that this issue represents the greatest threat humankind has ever known, I’m transcending ‘profits over values’, I’m envisioning with others a better world, I’m aligning myself with the best international scientific minds, I’m experiencing the sensation of having a larger mission in life.”

This—manmade global warming—means all that.

Therefore, how do you approach rational discourse on the subject of manmade warming?

You don’t.

There is no logic to be found. There is only “this means that.”

The concept or idea or symbol of manmade warming is so fully packed with sentiment, it resists all attempts at entry.

Here is another example: “America must field a powerful military force all over the world.”

For many people this means: “US wars are good and righteous wars, support our troops, admire the representations of war in sports, praise large American corporations, vote for a ‘tough President’, winning is everything, expand the Pentagon budget, develop a kick-ass attitude, love technology in all forms and degrees, obey and agree with institutional authority, assume that bigger is always better.”

“This means that.”

Therefore, a rational discussion about the wisdom of deploying the US military all over the planet is impossible. The amount of packed sentiment is a suit of body and mind armor.

In the case of manmade warming, examining the science behind the hypothesis becomes completely irrelevant. To even begin to look at it feels like an act of betrayal to the person who has “this means that” firmly in place.

Nothing in the person’s education has ever challenged his reflexive hard-wired “this-that” formulation. A breakthrough has never been made in the area of logic.

Instead, education has, at best, skated across the surface of “this means that” and left it undisturbed.

With some degree of accuracy, one could say that all the other traditional logical fallacies—ad hominem attack, straw man, vague generality, circular reasoning, appeal to authority, etc.—spring from “this means that.”

When I attended college in the 1950s, it was my good fortune to have a logic professor who could analyze and separate a thousand angels dancing on the head of a pin—and at the same time, maintain his great and natural charm and sense of humor.

Our conversations outside of class were moments of excitement. They were also rugged mind workouts.

His parting shot to me, as I was about to graduate: “Know what you don’t know.”

Some 20 years later, when I began a career as a reporter, that piece of advice came back to me.

I was prepared to do investigations, because I could make assessments of what I didn’t know and therefore needed to find out.

I could evaluate sources, who would often try to deploy logical flaws to derail me.

One of the great delights of reporting is discovering that the story you’re working on isn’t the story. The story turns out to be something else entirely.

That was the case in 1987, when I got down to writing my first book, AIDS Inc (note: AIDS Inc is included as bonus in Power Outside The Matrix). People were coming at me from every direction, feeding me their half-baked theories about what AIDS “really was.”

They seemed to believe that, because they were departing from the conventional wisdom on the subject, they must be right.

Encountering that odd notion of self-entitlement stood me in good stead, from that time forward.

When I eventually arrived at the bottom of the AIDS story, I was shocked to see it wasn’t at all what I predicted it would be.

It’s astounding how many logical steps people are willing to skip over, when they have a “this means that” cooking in their heads.

Like a foreign traveler visiting a bizarre museum, I’ve encountered many varieties of sophistry over the past 30 years.

Logic isn’t the be-all and end-all. But it is, in the largest sense, an ever-expanding method you can use to probe deeper and deeper into an argument, a line of reasoning, and engage with the basic assumptions that underlie a position a person is occupying.

It’s as if you’re learning a story backwards, moving toward the beginning, where all the secrets are.

And chances are good that you will eventually encounter some form of the abiding “this means that,” hiding like a horned toad under a bush.

He’s there, he’s quiet, he’s waiting, and when you turn a branch away from a shadow, he stares at you and you know you’ve arrived at the nexus:

the unyielding stubborn source of confusion and illogic.

And sometimes, on good days, you can get the horned toad to tell his story. His real story. All the way through. And you can see him regain his lost sanity.

That’s an experience not to be missed. You’ll remember it for your whole life.

Zika: update from Brazil: towering non-evidence

Zika: update from Brazil: towering non-evidence

by Jon Rappoport

February 4, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

I can now provide the latest update on what researchers in Brazil are discovering, as they dig into their original findings about the Zika virus and cases of microcephaly (babies born with small heads and brain impairment).

A correspondent has offered a translation of an article that appeared in one of the major Sao Paulo newspapers, O Estado de São Paulo, on February 2nd, “País tem 404 casos confirmados de microcefalia”:

It is obvious that no significant connection between microcephaly and the Zika virus has been found. It’s not even close. So far, therefore, there is absolutely no reason to trumpet an epidemic of Zika. Doing so is quite insane, by any reasonable standard.

Here are the principal facts in the article (after which I’ll comment):

* As of January 30, 2015, 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly were reported in Brazil.

* Of those, 3,670 suspected cases of microcephaly, covering the entire country of Brazil, are being investigated.

* Of those 3,670, 404 cases have been confirmed as microcephaly or “other alterations in the central nervous system” of babies.

* Of those 404 cases, 17 “had a relationship with zika virus.”

* 98% of the 404 microcephaly cases come from the Northeast area of Brazil, and in that area, Pernambuco has the highest number of cases: 56.


Now, let’s take each one of these reported facts and examine it.

First: 4,783 suspected cases of microcephaly in Brazil. “Suspected” is the operative word. This number means nothing, because it says nothing about confirmation. It’s just a raw figure.

3,670 of these cases are being researched.

Of these 3,670, 404 have been confirmed as microcephaly or other alterations in the central nervous system of the babies. The key word here is “or.” The researchers don’t know how many of the 404 babies have microcephaly. At the very most, it would be 404. 404 cases of microcephaly in the whole country of Brazil, so far. That is not an epidemic. For example, every year in the US, there are 25,000 cases of microcephaly. And the literature is very clear about causes: any insult to the fetal brain during pregnancy can result in microcephaly. Severe malnutrition, falling down stairs, a blow to the stomach, a toxic street drug or medical drug or vaccine or pesticide, and so on.

Of these 404 cases of (possible) microcephaly in Brazil, 17 babies have been found who “have a relationship with the Zika virus.” It’s hard to be more vague. But for the sake of argument, let’s say that in each of the 17, with a correct test done properly, the Zika virus was isolated. This finding does not even remotely approach proof that Zika is causing microcephaly. It’s miles away from proof. Any honest researcher will tell you that. If Zika were the cause, researchers should have been able to find it in the overwhelming majority of the 404 babies. 17 out of 404 is, in fact, major evidence that Zika is not the cause.

98% of the 404 (possible) microcephaly cases come from the Northeast region of Brazil. Before jumping to any conclusions, realize that standards on reporting such cases differ from region to region. Up until now, there was no national focus on microcephaly. So there may be other cases from other regions. As for the 56 cases in Pernambuco, understand that the population of this area is 9.27 million people. It is significant to note that commercial agriculture is widespread in Pernambuco, and agriculture means toxic pesticides—an important causal factor in microcephaly, as I’ve detailed in other articles.


power outside the matrix


To sum up, researchers so far have found 404 cases of microcephaly in Brazil, and who knows how many of those are actually some other kind of nervous-system impairment. And of those 404 babies, they have found, at best, 17 cases where the Zika virus was present.

And this is the epidemic that is shaking the world.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is spearheading the baseless propaganda and the hysteria. At the very least, hundreds of employees from WHO should be immediately fired from their jobs, if not jailed.

Zika: Jon Levine of mic.com interviews me

Zika: Jon Levine of mic.com interviews me

by Jon Rappoport

February 4, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

I now have a strategy when any member of the press who could be considered “mainstream” or “almost mainstream” interviews me. I’m interviewing them, too, at the same time.

Then, when they publish something, people can see the difference between their account and mine. I like it.

I’m noting what they say to me and how they’re approaching me and the issue at hand—and I’m writing about it afterwards.

So I get an email from Jon Levine at mic.com (Jon Levine’s mic.com profile here) (mic.com’s twitter feed is here). He wants to talk to me about possible alternative explanations re Zika, or some such, he leaves a number, and I call him.

He expresses some interest in one of my Zika articles he read at Activist Post, and asks me a question. Wait, I say, is this on the record? (I thought we were just chatting or this was for background only.) Yes, he says, now, it’s on the record. Are you interviewing me? I ask. Yes, he says. Not my favorite way to begin an interview.

I figure, what the hell, so I give him an earful. I cite the latest figures out of Brazil, the center of the Zika-microcephaly “crisis.” 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly (or possibly some other kind of non-microcephaly nervous-system impairment), and of those 404 cases, only 17 “with a relationship to the Zika virus,” whatever the hell that means. In other words, zero science proving there is either a microcephaly epidemic or that Zika has anything to do with it. I hammer on this for a while with him. I want him to get the point.

He asks me why I think all this press coverage of the “outbreak” is happening, or maybe he asks me what other explanation there could be for the cases of microcephaly, or something like this—can’t remember—I didn’t take notes—and I say I’m not going there. I don’t want his readers to focus on some alternative scenario, I want them to focus on the science, of which there is none.

I keep pounding on the latest figures out of Brazil, I do mention corporations that need to be protected down there as they spew toxic pesticides all over the landscape—and, for example, atrazine has been linked to microcephaly.

I hit the World Health Organization for fomenting all this hysteria based on no science, but instead relying on “suspicion” and fear of “not acting soon enough,” which was, they say, a problem in the Ebola “outbreak.” He says something like, well, doesn’t “over-caution” (my term) make sense? And I fling around a few expletives and say no, it makes no sense at all, because there is no indication of an epidemic or the involvement of Zika—and the burden of proof is on the people who launched the announcement of the “epidemic” in the first place.

I tell him I’ve been around the block on these so-called epidemics before, and he asks for an example (of a phony epidemic), and I tell him: Swine Flu.

I then recount the whole Sharyl Attkisson-CBS story about how she discovered, at the height of the Swine Flu hysteria, that the CDC had stopped counting cases in America, and that was because the overwhelming numbers of blood samples from diagnosed Swine Flu patients and the most likely Swine flu cases were coming back from the labs with no sign of Swine Flu or any flu—and that story, by Sharyl, was put up on the CBS News website, and her editor told her it was the most original story on Swine Flu he’d seen—but when they tried to get the story on the network evening news, it was suddenly shot down, and that was that. And then I added my own piece: a few weeks later, the CDC, doubling and tripling down, estimated there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in America (which even by CDC standards for telling lies wall to wall had to rank up there among their greatest bullshit hits).

I didn’t get much of a reaction from Jon Levine of mic.com. All through the interview, he suppressed, or never had, a surprised reaction to any of my comments. I suppose this is a fine example of journalistic objectivity.

I told him there was no way he could take the actual facts about Zika-microcephaly and write them straight out for his news outlet and expose the entire scam and get the story published. It wouldn’t happen. If it did, his reputation would take a serious hit. I think I mentioned that I knew that and that he knew that, too.


power outside the matrix


That was pretty much that. So let’s see what happens. Let’s see if he publishes a Zika piece at mic.com. If he does, let’s see if he mentions the interview, and how, and in what context. Let’s see what he does with it. Let’s see if he or anyone else at mic.com goes to the CDC or WHO for a comment or, God forbid, actually digs into this insane scandal. Let’s see. Keep your eyes open. If a piece does appear, let me know. My interview with Jon Levine took place on Thurs. Feb. 4.

If I were in Vegas and could lay down money on the outcome, I think you know which way I’d go. But that’s just me.

Zika: vicious fraud: abortions at sea: the war on women

Zika: vicious fraud: abortions at sea: the war on women

by Jon Rappoport

February 4, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

You’re a pregnant woman in Central America. You’ve just been told you could have the Zika virus. No tests. No confirmation. And of course, no one is telling you that Zika has not been proved to cause anything. But you’re offered an abortion at sea, because the country you live in doesn’t allow abortions, except in very restricted cases. A group will take you out on a ship, and when you come back your baby will be gone. He or she will never be born. You’re just another casualty in the campaign to provoke fear, but now it has been your very personal experience.

February 3, 2016. Vocative.com has the story, “Pregnant Zika victims will be given access to abortions at sea”:

“Now Women on Waves, an organization which uses ships to offer safe abortion services outside the territorial waters of countries where the procedure is restricted or forbidden, has announced that they will begin serving areas affected by Zika.”

“Women on Waves is aiming to give them [pregnant women] a safe, legal alternative. They will provide medical abortions to pregnant women who have Zika in Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, Guadeloupe, Paraguay, Venezuela, Argentina, Surinam, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Panama, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. Eligible women must be less than 9 weeks pregnant and are required to fill out an online application to receive the abortifacient drugs. The group has said getting a shipment of the medicine to patients can take between one and five weeks, meaning it will require a woman who discovers she’s pregnant to act very quickly to receive help in time.”

As I’ve detailed in previous articles, the original propaganda which launched the whole Zika-birth defect hysteria, has been contradicted by Brazilian researchers who’ve gone back and rechecked the findings. They’ve found far, far fewer cases of the birth defect, microcephaly, and only a handful of cases where the Zika virus was present.

But this hasn’t stopped the fear mongers. And now we have abortions at sea, based on zero truth and zero science.

Put this together with the travel warnings governments have been issuing to women, and the advisories (“don’t get pregnant for two years”), and this is turning out to be a war against women.

Depopulation by press conference.

Who will be held responsible? No one.

Unless people begin to speak out and ignore the roar of the press and the lying public health agencies.

The abortions will continue. Pregnant women will never know the truth, that the loss of their children was created by propaganda.


power outside the matrix


Margaret Chan, the director of the World Health Organization, has admitted that the causal connection between microcephaly (the birth defect) and the Zika virus has not been demonstrated. It is “strongly suspected.” However, in order to respond quickly to the “crisis,” the world must act on a suspicion.

Someone should point out to her that abortions at sea are now a consequence of what her advisors have told her to suspect.

Zika: sex and bloodsucking vampire bugs: the movie

Zika: sex and bloodsucking vampire bugs: the movie

by Jon Rappoport

February 3, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

Evidence? Who cares about evidence? You give people the mere announcement of an outbreak plus a virus and they’ll cling to it as if it’s a long-lost relative who’s about to die and leave them a billion dollars.

In two previous articles, I laid to rest the notion that anyone has proved there is an epidemic of microcephaly or that the Zika virus causes microcephaly. Those articles are: Zika freaka: the other shoe drops: lying about case numbers and Zika: biggest news service in America absolutely clueless.

Bottom line: Brazilian researchers have only been able to confirm, so far, 270 cases of microcephaly, not 4000 as originally trumpeted. And of those 270 cases, only six, that’s six, were found to have any trace of the Zika virus. If that’s an epidemic, a floor lamp can jump up and sing I’ve Got You Under My Skin in Mandarin Chinese.

But now the Centers for Disease Control has upped the ante—a few cases of “Zika-virus transmission” through, wait for it, sex, have been discovered. The tiny Zika terrorist is riding in semen. OMG. OMG.

Put this together with biting bloodsucking mosquitoes carrying Zika and you have a blockbuster boffo box office movie. Put it up on IMAX. Who will they pick to do the Voice of God narration?

Let’s see. Transmission of a virus through sex. The virus hasn’t been shown to cause anything. Conclusion? No fear. But that doesn’t sell. That doesn’t titillate. So forget about evidence or proof. Just market the damn movie.

Here are the old standby memes: “Spread. Transmission of the virus. Infected. Carrier. New cases with the virus.”

What we’re left with, at this point, are these garbage terms the public swallows without inspection. That goes for news reporters as well, and many, many scientists. These key phrases are intended to create caution and fear, as authorities map Zika journeys from city to city and country to country.

So I’ll quickly break down the memes and reveal them for the slugs they are.

“Spread.” For a virus that has existed for who knows how long (it was first discovered in 1947), the notion of spread is moronic. Of course it spreads. It walks down the street, it takes the subway, it hails a cab, it jumps on a plane, it crawls through the woods, it rides via semen, it stands up on stage and runs a quiz show. It’s already been around the world a few thousand times and it’s already in people’s bodies from Tierra del Fuego to Nome. So? What do we have? A virus which hasn’t been shown to cause microcephaly or any serious illness is everywhere. Big deal. There are millions of different viruses. Most of them do nothing. They hang out, once they’re in a place they like, and they watch The Young and the Restless. They spread, but basically they’re already there.

“Transmission of the virus.” Ditto. I just explained that. The answer is yes and so what.

“Carrier.” Ditto again. You might have Zika. And you, too. So what?

“New cases with the virus.” Ditto one more time. Except the people with Zika in their bodies aren’t cases. They may carry cases, as in suitcases. They may try cases, as in lawyers. But they aren’t cases.

“Infected.” This word suggests a person has a virus and the virus is causing a problem. Inflammation, swelling, fever. Even accepting the traditional literature on Zika, all we see are minor symptoms and brief discomfort. It wasn’t until very recently that anyone suggested Zika is causing microcephaly. And, as I’ve shown, this notion was premature, without supporting evidence. There was no reason for the press explosion, for suggestions of an epidemic, for government and health agency pronouncements about a worldwide emergency.

As an investigator, you have to go back to the beginning. Whenever an announcement of an “outbreak” is made, and a cause is trumpeted, you have to find out how many cases of the disease actually exist. Is it really an outbreak? And then you have to look for evidence that the presumed cause is really causing anything. If you don’t look deeply into those questions, you’ll climb on board the train that has been prepared for you and take the ride. You may then come up with ideas about how the cause was “secretly introduced,” but if the purported cause isn’t the cause, and if there isn’t an epidemic, what do you have?

In the case of Brazil, genetically engineered mosquitoes and the Tdap vaccine, for example, are important factors to explore, because they can certainly have destructive effects on health. Yes. But to use those factors to explain “what’s really going on with the epidemic and the Zika virus”—you’re still riding on the basic propaganda train where there is no actual evidence of an epidemic or a harmful virus.

Unfortunately, most people are disappointed when an exotic piece of charlatan dazzle turns out to be a dud. They would rather believe, instead of experiencing the feeling of being left with nothing.

They would rather go to the movies and watch flying little demons sucking blood from unsuspecting humans and injecting those humans with invisible microscopic sub-demons and, in the wake of that, sex turns out to be a catastrophe of global proportions. That’s a two-hour jolt of adrenaline.

That’s worth the price of the ticket.

That’s show-biz.


power outside the matrix


Let me put it to you this way. If you had a few billion bucks and straight-line control of fawning media, you could concoct the most ridiculous and absurd story of fear anyone ever heard of, and the networks would blast it out as absolute fact. And people all over the world would believe it and tremble. And then, when that story was absolutely exposed as pure invention, there would still be many people who would say: “But maybe the story is true. Maybe it is. Maybe there really are green-eyed people born with a special genetic defect that makes them travel to Tahiti and shovel snow 365 days a year on the beaches, and maybe they can pass this defect along to the locals and then the defect is transmitted around the world and people will shovel imaginary snow 24/7, day after day, until they weaken and fall down and go into a coma. Yes, it could be. It would be unwise of me to reject the possibility, because if it’s true…”

That’s how fear is sold and stays sold, no matter what.

The “if it’s true” tag line.

That’s what the sleazy hustlers put on the movie posters, my friends, under the pictures of the flying demons:

“What if it’s true?”

That’s the eternal hook.

Selling hypnotic Reality

Selling hypnotic Reality

by Jon Rappoport

February 3, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

My latest collection, Power Outside The Matrix, contains a long section called, Analyzing Disinformation in the Age of Information.

It explains the buying and selling of false realities—a major occupation in the Matrix.

The key is having the tools to analyze realities, take them apart, and apply logic and other critical methods to these structures.

This goes beyond formal logic. It involves the assessment of probabilities, for example, where vital information is being hidden from us.

I’ve been at this for 30 years. In this section of Power Outside The Matrix, I offer key examples from my own extensive investigations.

The cults in charge of selling false realities take on different forms, but their objective has always been the same: create a central image that conveys basic concepts of existence—bypassing the rational mind and instead covertly appealing to automatic reflex functions.

The most important of these reflex functions is: investing emotions in presented images. This is the primary strategy of informational mind control on the planet.

During my 30 years as a reporter covering “the news behind the news,” I’ve seen countless instances in which the Matrix shows up, swims into view.

The Matrix, the central image, is a lie. But not just any lie.

It is very deep, shared, hypnotic picture of reality.

It has all the earmarks of being true. Therefore, many people accept it. People “know it’s right.”

People believe that, if it were wrong, if it were an illusion, their view of the world would melt.

So they retreat. They turn their backs. They settle into accepting the Matrix-picture.

People need more power—more individual power, so they can both stand and operate outside the Matrix.

Wherever you see false pictures of reality—in the areas of science, politics, energy, medicine, media, money, covert intelligence, the military, religion, multinational corporations—you also see the need for individuals to gain power, so they can stand and operate outside these pictures.

Limited concepts of space, time, and energy—these, too, are “given” to human beings as the be-all and end-all of a story. A story that ultimately short-circuits and short-changes what the individual is really capable of.

The entire mural of imposed Reality is aimed at radically diminishing the individual’s power.

So in addition to my work as an investigative reporter, I’ve been researching the individual’s ability to go beyond this mural of reality.

In the late 1980s, in concert with the brilliant hypnotherapist Jack True (who gave up doing hypnosis with his patients), I developed many exercises and techniques for expanding the creative power of the individual. Both Jack and I were continuing a tradition that goes all the way back to early Tibet.

Some of those exercises are included in Power Outside The Matrix. These techniques are aimed at accessing more energy, more imagination, more stability and intelligence “beyond the mural of reality.”

Power Outside The Matrix is all about being able to think, act, and create both outside and inside The Matrix. Because that’s the goal: to be able to function in both places.

People are consciously or unconsciously fixated on boundaries and systems. They are hoping for whatever can be delivered through a system.

That fixation is a form of mind control.

Freedom isn’t a system.

But freedom needs creative power, otherwise it just sits there and becomes a lonely statue gathering dust in an abandoned park.

At one time or another, every human being who has ever lived on this planet has abandoned his creative power. The question is: does he want to get it back?

It never really goes away. It is always there. It is the basis of a life that can be lived. A life that can be chosen. People instead choose roles that don’t require that power. They think this is a winning strategy.

It isn’t.

A section of my mega-collection, titled Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality, features creative exercises you do on a daily basis that will help a committed individual move toward the goal of power outside The Matrix. The exercises are all about increasing your energy and stability—and about the invention of new spaces.

Access to your internal energy, in huge amounts, is necessary for a life outside The Matrix—rather than relying on the illusory energy that The Matrix seems to provide.

I’ve developed the exercises for exactly that purpose: your energy, your dynamism.

Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation is filled with specific examples of my past investigations. Based on 25 years of experience, it shows you how to take apart and put together data that lead to valid conclusions.

It is far more than a logic course.

It’s an advanced approach to analysis.

Establishing power outside The Matrix requires that a person be able to deal with today’s flood of information, misinformation, and disinformation. I’ve left no stone unturned in bringing you a workable approach to analysis.

There is a further extensive section titled, A Writer’s Tutorial. People have been asking me to provide this Tutorial, and here it is in spades. But it’s not just for writers. It’s for any creative person who wants to grasp his own power, understand it, and use it to reach out into the world.

The Tutorial exposes you to lessons that go far beyond what is normally taught in writer’s seminars. In fact, several core concepts in the Tutorial contradict ordinary writer’s seminars, and thus give you access to inner resources that would otherwise be ignored.

And finally, I have included a number of audio seminars that offer a wider perspective about The Matrix and what it means to live and work outside it.


power outside the matrix


Here are the particulars. These are audio presentations. 55 total hours.

* Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation (11.5-hours)

* Writer’s Tutorial (8.5-hours)

* Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality—creative techniques (6.5-hours)

Then you will receive the following audio presentations I have previously done:

* The Third Philosophy of Imagination (1-hour)

* The Infinite Imagination (3-hours)

* The Mass Projection of Events (1.5-hours)

* The Decentralization of Power (1.5-hours)

* Creating the Future (6-hours)

* Pictures of Reality (6-hours)

* The Real History of America (2-hours)

* Corporations: The New Gods (7.5-hours)

I have included an additional bonus section:

* The complete text (331 pages) of AIDS INC., the book that exposed a conspiracy of scientific fraud deep within the medical research establishment. The book has become a sought-after item, since its publication in 1988. It contains material about viruses, medical testing, and the invention of disease that is, now and in the future, vital to our understanding of phony epidemics arising in our midst (and how to analyze them). I assure you, the revelations in the book will surprise you; they cut much deeper and are more subtle than “virus made in a lab” scenarios.

* A 2-hour radio interview I did on AIDS in Dec 1987 with host Roy Tuckman on KPFK in Los Angeles, California.

* My book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies

(All the audio presentations are mp3 files and the books are pdf files. You download them upon purchase. You’ll receive an email with a link to the entire collection.)

At the core of consciousness, there are two impulses in the individual. The first is: give in, surrender. The second is: express power without limit.

The teaching of every civilization and society is: don’t use your power.

When you follow the second path, when you express your power without limits, remarkable things happen.

The veil of illusion melts away.

You meet yourself on new ground.

You know what your freedom is for.

Without imposing on the freedom of others, you live the life you always wanted.

That’s what Power Outside The Matrix is all about.

Zika: biggest news service in America absolutely clueless

Zika: biggest news service in America absolutely clueless

by Jon Rappoport

February 2, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

First, many thanks to great investigative reporter and researcher, Jim West, for help on this story.

Okay, here we go.

Of course, I’m talking about the Associated Press (AP)—and its recent coverage of the Zika story: January 27, “270 of 4,180 suspected microcephaly cases confirmed.”

AP actually had its hands on the most explosive information possible, it reported that information in one stunning paragraph, and then it let that paragraph sit there like a dead corpse. It didn’t do anything with it. Just another day at the office. Connect the dots? See the implications? Never heard of it.

To set this up, earlier in the story, AP revealed that Brazilian researchers have been re-checking their own work on Zika, and lo and behold, the original 4,180 cases of babies born with small heads and brain impairment (microcephaly) have turned out to be only 270.

The Brazilians are going through more records. But so far, the “epidemic” is not even close to an epidemic. The whole story that has spread all over the world was based on 4,180 cases. Without that number, there would have been no story.

The AP piece then goes on to revelation number two. This is even more stunning:

“Brazilian officials said the babies with the defect [microcephaly/small heads, brain damage] and their mothers are being tested to see if they had been infected. Six of the 270 confirmed microcephaly cases were found to have the [Zika] virus.” (emphasis added)

Hello, AP? Anyone home? Pick up. Don’t you see what you’re reporting? Don’t you get it?

So far, there are only six confirmed cases where a baby was born with microcephaly and also had the Zika virus. Six cases. That’s six.

And on that basis, health agencies and governments and media outlets all over the world are going crazy with warnings about the Zika virus.

There is absolutely no evidence that Zika is causing anything here. Zero evidence.

To even begin to think a virus is causing a condition, you must be able to show that the virus is present in the overwhelming majority of cases.

That test has not been passed re Zika. It has utterly failed thus far.

With this information, the Associated Press did nothing. They didn’t press the experts. They didn’t go anywhere. They didn’t ask questions. They reported the bombshell…and then they walked away.

There’s more. In their story, AP reaches out to a representative of the CDC. The subject is the number of microcephaly cases in the US every year. They’re doing a comparison between the US and Brazil. AP states:

“The United States, with about 4 million births a year, has an estimated 2,500 cases of microcephaly a year, said Margaret Honein, a CDC epidemiologist.”

The reader of the article shrugs and moves on. There’s only one problem. The CDC epidemiologist is dead wrong. Or the AP misprinted the number. Incompetently. Or on purpose. Who can say? I can’t, because although I phoned the AP yesterday and left a message about the egregious error, they haven’t gotten back to me. The AP error, you see, is this:

It isn’t 2,500 cases a year. It’s 25,000. As in thousand.

Every year in the US—and the conventional medical literature is very clear on this—there are 25,000 babies born with microcephaly.

(See “Practice Parameter: Evaluation of the child with microcephaly (an evidence-based review)”; Neurology 2009 Sep 15; 73(11) 887-897; Report of the Quality Standards Subcommittee of the American Academy of Neurology and the Practice Committee of the Child Neurology Society.)

Why is this significant? Because, obviously, the Zika virus isn’t the cause. In fact, the same literature states that any insult to the fetal brain during pregnancy can cause microcephaly. The mother falls down the stairs. She is severely malnourished. She ingests a poison, a street drug, a toxic medical drug.

But if the AP, in its story, had published the actual number of microcephaly cases in the US every year (25,000 not 2,500), and compared it to the known number of microcephaly cases in Brazil at this point (270), people might wake up and say, “Why is Brazil the focus? Why is the situation in Brazil causing a worldwide crisis? Are the World Health Organization and the CDC crazy?

The answer to that last question, of course, is yes. But not just crazy. First and foremost, they’re liars.

Referring back to my original point about the Brazilian researchers finding only 270 confirmed cases of microcephaly, and then only six of those with the Zika virus, the World Health Organization has taken that information and spun it—and media outlets have followed suit. The 270 Brazilian cases of microcephaly are now coupled with the phrase: “…with evidence of an infection.”

Let me translate that clever piece of manipulation. The implication is: all 270 cases also have the Zika virus. That’s what “infected” means.

Not just six cases with the virus. No. All 270 cases.

A lie.


power outside the matrix


So, all you women who are thinking about having a baby: don’t. Don’t get pregnant. Don’t travel to 22 countries. Believe the authorities. They know what’s best for you. They always do. Surely, there’s a global epidemic underway. Out of nine billion people, 270 in Brazil have microcephaly, and six of those have the virus that could impair your baby. This makes perfect sense. Of course it does. If you have the thinking power of a rock. If you’re committed to a life of abject fear, based on nothing.

Perhaps it’s dawning on some of you that we’re in the wrong business. We should be starting our own branch of Fear, Inc. Our product would sell like crazy.

Or we could just put the World Health Organization on our personal terror watch list.
