I fully realize I’m not writing in a way that pigeonholes me in some easy category. This has been the way since the beginning of this site. And there is a reason why. I was a painter for many years before I began working as a reporter. From painting, I saw that magic was real and it was powerful. I experienced it. I also saw that there was an operation underway to bury the individual—and worse, to eradicate the memory of the idea of the individual.


Real magic is the territory of the individual, not the group.


Individual power is the target of the globalists.


So I work both sides of the street, so to speak. I don’t exclude subjects simply because it puts some puzzlement in the minds of my readers. I want to shake things up. I want individuals to take full advantage of the fact that there is much, much more to life than is usually advertised. That’s why I put together THE MATRIX REVEALED. I thought it was time to lay it all out on the table.


Real magic isn’t something that takes place in dark rooms with symbols and rituals and costumes and robot followers. It isn’t a code word for Satanic. It has nothing to do with all that garbage. Real magic has everything to do with the innate ability of the individual. It has to do with breaking through the illusion that the space-time continuum rules and limits our lives. This isn’t a voyage everybody wants to embark on. But it’s a journey some people have been waiting their whole lives to take, because they realize there is something phony inherent in the reality we accept as final.


Reality isn’t only what elites are doing to the global population. It’s also about what we do to restrict our own individual power, and I’d be a liar if I didn’t point that out.


1) Introduction


You can pose a problem to a person that pits one of his emotions against another. It’s a clever strategy. In fact, it’s more than clever. It’s ingenious. For example, you hogtie him by balancing his desire for freedom against his desire to serve, to be liked.


This is no small thing. The person can’t wrap his mind around such a paradox. He feels like a steel ball in a pinball machine. He wants to be free and independent and strong, but at the same time, he wants praise and he wants to be known as “good.”


This problem, over time, if not resolved, acts like a drug on consciousness. It produces a state of narcosis. Which is another way of saying: surrender.


Surrender is a close cousin to sacrifice. Here is a quote from the Edward Bernays of fiction, the fat little manipulator, Ellsworth Toohey, a pivotal character in Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead:


Every system of ethics that preached sacrifice grew into a world power and ruled millions of men.”


These days, millions of young students all over the world are being conditioned to support a new world in which the sacrifice and lessening of the individual are sacred virtues.


The students approve and join ranks, because they have nothing else to live for. They can’t think for themselves, they can’t imagine the other option, which is individualism. For them, individualism is degraded and stands for nothing more than unattractive unbridled greed and petty materialism. So they’re trapped.


The truth is they shouldn’t be in college at all. They should be living in the world and discovering for themselves the meaning of their lives. They should be free to make mistakes, to fail, to start over, to test themselves against group consciousness and rise above it or submit to it and experience fascism first-hand.


The famous mind-control doctor, Jose Delgado, who worked out of Yale, once wrote, “Man does not have the right to develop his own mind…” That’s precisely the position of the guardians of the Matrix.


They seek the Landru, which was the name given to a computer-simulated dictator that ruled a planet in a Star Trek episode. The population is kept subservient by this machine—all for the sake of peace and the end of violent conflict.


Well, everyone wants peace. So on one level, this radical Landru solution seems reasonable. But the price to be paid is the liberty of every person.


The aim of mind control is the use of universal ideals as the lever to push populations into a diminished state of power. “You want X, don’t you? Of course you do. You can have it, if you’re willing to make a sacrifice.”


And what is that sacrifice?




So you get this paradox, for example. “All selves want peace. Here is peace. Just give up self.”


A careful reading of the Bhagavad Gita, the famous battlefield conversation between Krishna and Prince Arjuna, reveals that Self is presented as a shifting ground of meaning. One the one hand, Self is distinct and individually immortal. On the other hand, Self is a piece of a larger Being, a piece of cheese in the Big Cosmic Cheese.


This latter version is important as one instance among thousands, historically, in which we’re told that Self should be splendidly sacrificed—after all, it is an illusion that walls us off from “greater enlightened consciousness.” But the illusion is not self; it is actually the fabrication of the Big Cheese. That is the principle that enabled the ancient caste system—and it is being repeated today, as individuals are enlisted in the Larger Cause of “humanity.”


Here is the problem. If distinct and individual self is defined as petty and grasping and shallow and arrogant and even “mentally disordered,” then when a person considers the possibility of rejecting the Big Cheese of “higher collective consciousness,” the alternative (individuality) seems unpleasant, to say the least.


And that is why I have been writing on these pages for the past ten years.


Because there is a way to see the individual as great and free and powerful and creative, possessed of an infinite quality called imagination. And when that view comes to the foreground, the world (and the Matrix) are turned upside down. Forever.


All spiritual systems are false. They either teach individual absorption into some greater whole, or they teach freedom while organizing that freedom under the banner of authority, which is no freedom at all.


2) Notes on the Foundation of Magic


Magic rests on the ability to set aside the personal conviction that physical reality flows always and only as we experience it every day.


There are an infinite number of possible magics, which is to say, one can come at magic from an infinite number of paths. They are not rote copies of someone else’s system. And by system, I mean something divorced from self, divorced from one’s own desires.


As an analogy, consider the following: you read a book containing a hundred short stories. In each of these stories, there is a person who does magic. Each person does magic in a different way. You discover that, in one of the stories, the way a person is doing magic has a particular resonance, a particular closeness for you. Would you try to do magic by using the other 99 approaches, or would you go to the one that has strong appeal first?


Magic works changes in the space-time continuum. Magic overrides or replaces or supersedes the normal actions of the continuum.


Trying to explain how magic works by citing principles, methods, laws, and systems of the continuum is not informative.


The continuum can be likened to a machine that makes drip-coffee, one drip at a time. Serial time and serial chains of cause and effect are the patterns. Magic does not operate in that fashion.


The stories and sustaining myths we tell ourselves over and over, the stories to which we return, again and again, are capsules in which we float; and we sense that, if we can extend those tales, take them further than we have ever taken them before, we might emerge into the realm where we can do magic. This is called escape from the labyrinth.


Certainly, our state of mind, when we try to do magic, is important. If we are carrying too much baggage, if we feel burdened by our situation in life, we reduce our chance of success.


Magic has been called manifestation, and it is that. But the idea that one can start from zero and achieve manifestation in five minutes is a product of our warped desire to have everything we want all at once. It is a first cousin to entitlement.


The road to magic begins with imagination, which is the capacity to create realities that do not exist in the continuum.


The Matrix is the sum of things that keep us from doing magic. One of those things is continuing to perceive reality as we always have. Imagination is more powerful than perception.


Emotional magic begins with imagining what you desire. It is the first step. Living with and around and inside the imagining is the next step.


Trying to do magic out of an abject sense of desperation is asking for disappointment. Magic isn’t about failing to live in this world. It isn’t about mere escape. It isn’t about the overwhelming nostalgia that accompanies trying to regain something from the past that was lost. It isn’t about excusing a lack of success.


Achieving what is called the paranormal isn’t about trying to cut one’s self off from the world.


Doing magic isn’t merely substituting manifestation for hard work. A person who shrinks away from hard work shouldn’t go anywhere near magic.


A person who conceives of his own desires in some superficial flattened form needs to revolutionize and deepen his outlook. Is the absolute upper limit of what he desires a Rolex?


Wanting to help others isn’t a sign of weakness. But buying into a system that preaches and teaches helping others, while actually using that impulse to control massive populations is illusory and anti-magic.


A person who has gone beyond basing his ideas on mere feedback signals from the world and his own body, who has gone beyond seeing everything under the sun as a problem that needs to be solved, who has glimpsed the wider meaning of living a truly creative life has taken his first steps on the road to magic.

Since I’ve been investigating, researching, and writing about what manipulators and controllers have been doing to the population, it may SEEM as if I’m saying you and I and everybody else are, at bottom, victims. You could read it that way if you were predisposed to. But you would be wrong.


Becoming more deeply aware of what the Matrix is and what it entails is highly important. But it’s really only important if the individual already has a strong foundation of responsibility.


I’m talking about making up your own mind about your own life and your own profound objectives and your own deep desires. And acting on that. And taking responsibility for all this in a very natural and final way. What ideas do you buy? What ideas do you reject? What will you create for the next 50 years? Your decision. Your choice. Your action.


We all fall into the victim trap now and then. The question is, do we dig ourselves out of it? Or do we wallow in it?


Freedom is such a basic thing because, in that space, you make your own most important decisions privately and finally, and you alone take the consequences. You, I, everybody. That’s not a theory. It’s the way it is. In a sense, it’s proof that freedom exists.


Now, when a nation or a world sinks to the point where so many individuals are so unaware of what’s happening around them, what decisions are being made on their behalf, it looks like we’re all victims forever. It looks like we never had a choice about anything important. We’re all slaves and we have no power. And this is where a lot of people stop and settle on a picture of what reality is. And that picture is: THE CONTROLLERS ARE DOING BAD THINGS TO ME AND I CAN’T STOP IT. I HAVE NO WAY OUT.


AND WITH THAT PICTURE IN PLACE, the individual will embark on a project of finding the worst thing that’s being done to him, the thing he couldn’t possibly fix, and he’ll say: “You see? That’s proof! That shows I’m helpless. We’re all helpless.”


So be it. If that’s where a person wants to stop and make his home and set up shop, that’s his choice. But that’s not just a choice about chemtrails or radiation from Japan or war or the global bankers, that’s his BASIC choice. That’s what it becomes: his basic choice about his own life and his own power.


As in: he doesn’t have any. He doesn’t have any choice and he doesn’t have any power and he doesn’t have any imagination he could use to make his life far, far different. That’s a hell of a conclusion. But so be it.


Of course, our esteemed leaders try to cultivate and create more victims, because more victims are the building blocks of the world they want to make. But that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the space of freedom, within which an INDIVIDUAL DECIDES TO PLAY A HOLE CARD AND BLAME SOMEBODY ELSE FOR HIS OWN CHOICES AND HIS OWN FAILURES AND HIS OWN INACTION.


You see, when it comes right down to it, that’s his version of power. That’s his best version of power. And if he wants to fight that war and lose and destroy himself, that’s his choice. And it turns out there is nothing you or I can do about it, even if we wanted to do something.


And this victim situation I’m describing? You can find it in the street thug, you can find it in academia, you can find it all the way up to the boardrooms of the most powerful corporations on Earth. That’s right.


Let’s sweep out the room. Let’s clear out the confusion. No one exits the Matrix thinking he’s a victim. Doesn’t happen. The premise that ANYONE is the kind of authority who can tell you what to do is based on a lie. The lie of your submission and surrender, which is followed by regret.


For the person who is strong, being deceived by an authority through misjudgment is a vital lesson. It shows you what fascism is really all about, on whatever stage it played out. You learn. You see. You react. You bought the con. You were drawn in one step at a time. You paid the price. You took the bait. You didn’t notice the strings being pulled. It’s a joke. In fact, it’s a cosmic joke, because if you look at human history, you see all the ways authorities of one kind or another have been propped up and sold.


Political authorities, religious authorities, money authorities, business authorities, psychological authorities, esthetic authorities, personal authorities, cultural authorities, “universal” authorities, the authority of the one space and one time and one energy and one continuum. All packaged and sold and delivered.


It was all invented through somebody else’s imagination, and we bought that imagination instead of finding our own.




The victim ALWAYS buys somebody else’s imagination. He keeps buying and buying until he’s broke, and then he wants to blame somebody for his own habit, his own addiction.


When you offload enough of other people’s imagination and find enough of your own, you discover that reality can be far, far, far, far different than you supposed. There is actually no limit on what imagination can create and bring into being. With work.


It takes strength to go on that road. It’s not a little party with doilies and ribbons and balloons and cartoons. It’s certainly not a party where somebody cries and gets mad because the cake fell apart and somebody else has to be blamed.


If you think what I’m doing here is ULTIMATELY about BLAMING the shapers of this fake consensus Reality, stop. That isn’t it. I’m talking to intelligent strong individuals who want both knowledge and power. Power that comes from living an intense creative life, a life of imagining and inventing new unprecedented realities. ON THEIR OWN. Period.


Do I care what Rockefeller and global bankers and CFR and Trilateralists and Bilderberg and the Vatican and mega-corporations and governments and intelligence agencies and fake scientists and fake media are all doing? OF COURSE I CARE. But that’s step one. That’s something that is a prelude to the INDIVIDUAL AND HIS POWER, HIS IMAGINATION, HIS INFINITE CREATIONS.

“I am what is mine. Personality is the original private property.” — Norman O Brown


“Man does not have the right to develop his own mind…” — Dr. Jose Delgado


School is the advertising agency which makes you believe that you need the society as it is.” — Ivan Illich


“The cooking vessel of the soul takes in everything, everything can become soul; and by taking into its imagination any and all events, psychic space grows.” — James Hillman


First, a mention of my new collection, THE MATRIX REVEALED. It’s my firm belief that the material in it will stand you in good stead, will provide you with insights you won’t find anywhere else. The collection is the result of ten years of original research.


Okay. The biggest intelligence operation inside The Matrix is the development of: A CULTURE OF THE INTELLIGENTSIA. THE EDUCATED CLASS.


Why? Because once indoctrinated, once given privilege, the intelligentsia, in institutions of learning, in government, in think-tanks, in media, will defend to the death the civilization they represent. The intelligentsia will do this on their own, without prodding, without meetings, without explicit agendas. They will also become attack dogs who go after “outsiders” who poke gaping holes in the substance of The Prevailing Culture.


And what is that Culture? On one level, it is the promotion of endless conflicts among opposing forces, exactly as portrayed so shallowly and expertly, by television network news. “Tonight in Syria…” “Today in Washington…” “The president met today with leaders from…”


On a deeper level, the Culture is an enhanced psychological preference for groups over individuals, for the collective mass over the individually unique.


The Culture carries many definitions of limits on what the individual can achieve. This is purposeful. The intelligentsia play an important role in this operation, by floating images and suggestions about the “restricted nature” of the individual, about his problems, his “dangerous tendencies,” his inability to see the larger picture.


In the West, the intelligentsia have been at work since the time of Plato. If you examine the “highlights” of philosophy since Plato’s ascension (as they are taught), you will see emphasized the works of men who, in one way or another, preached on behalf of collective solutions. This held until John Locke and a few others broke the mold.


Several minutes after the signing of the US Constitution, frantic repair efforts were underway to bring the population back to the notion that collectivism was the prime reality.


We are now at a point where one “respected news commentator,” looking down his nose, arrogantly and offhandedly dismissing the idea of individual power, can deliver more negative effect than the totality of trauma-based mind control achieved by the CIA in its early MKULTRA phase.


This is the strength of Culture and its intelligentsia.


And nowhere is that strength exerted to greater effect than in propaganda that individual Will Power is a myth. A hundred years ago, the Will was seen as the motor that drives achievement. There was no need to talk about commitment or decision-making or “underlying negative beliefs” or “existential doubt” or “meeting needs” or “prior conditioning.” The Cult of Victimhood had not yet formed. Disability had not yet taken precedence over Ability. We had not yet experienced the onslaught of cultural analysis that made a case for a Hitler (or a Lee Oswald) as the illustration of what happens when “the individual is left to his own devices,” outside the pale of “social restraints.”


However, with the intelligentsia’s gradual acceptance, first, of Freudian analysis and, then, various branches of psychology, and finally, the proliferation of “mental disorders,” the cultural landscape underwent a radical change.


Problems, neuroses, maladjustment, compensatory behavior, “acting out,” “denial,” “chemical imbalances”—these became the flags waved by the educated classes.


Those who didn’t go along with the tide were exiled beyond the walls of the establishment.


It finally became clear that all this manipulation was aimed at building a new version of Collectivism.


The citizen and the private person are looked at as feral dogs who need to be brought into the fold and tranquilized.


The intelligentsia are the buffer and the agent between elite controllers and the masses. They are the Kissingers and Brzezinskis and far lesser lights who “interpret meaning” for our time.


The intelligentsia urge a generalized support for more Science. More research. As if that were an automatic magic wand waved over the future. Never mind what parades for climate science, for pharmaceutical drug science, for genetically modified food science. Never mind the devastating effects of these researches, or the fact that the resultant technologies are funneled directly into giant corporations that roam the Earth and criminally gobble up more land, resources, and people.


The intelligentsia are dimly aware that those individuals who can deploy great imagination and great creative power are jokers in the deck, trump cards, rule-breakers, whose very existence can initiate the destruction of outmoded institutions and outmoded ways of perceiving reality itself.


Individuals of this nature make the Matrix look like Swiss cheese. Suddenly, all bets are off. The rock of common consensus and perception starts to disintegrate and there is no predicting what might take its place. Old certainties dissolve.


There is no “cure” for the tiger of imagination.


What happens if many people, looking at an individual of such power, wake up to the fact that their own self-image is a foolish and diminished cartoon?


Brilliant philosopher and social critic Ivan Illich once wrote, “School is the advertising agency which makes you believe that you need society as it is.” Education, the offspring of the intelligentsia, is there to define what normal society and a normal life are. Education is there to induce the conviction that every sane person will live his life within the parameters of normal society—and if some people slip through that net, their schooling will have ill-prepared them to discover how life can be lived beyond those boundaries.


In the Matrix, you pick your life role from a canned list, and you walk out on stage and act the part.


A real school would explore, uncover, and explain the Matrix in the deepest way possible, so that students would have an opportunity to liberate themselves from a mechanical future.


James Hillman, a profound critic of traditional psychology, wrote: “The cooking vessel of the soul takes in everything, everything can become soul; and by taking into its imagination any and all events, psychic space grows.”


This is a vision of realities beyond Matrix, beyond consensus, beyond materialistic philosophy. Even though the individual has buried his own creative power, he can recover it. He can alchemically transform the raw material of experience and use it to create new spaces, times, energies, futures. This is imagination at work. This is power. This is magic come home to where it belongs.


For the past ten years, I’ve been writing about imagination, and doing seminars about imagination. Some people get it and some people don’t. Some people get it but don’t go on to live through and by imagination. Some people fall back into “life as consensus reality.” So be it. Some people think I’m writing about my imagination, not theirs. I fully understand this isn’t an easy subject. But rest assured, I’m not writing about my imagination, I’m writing about yours. About every individual’s. And what you do with that is up to you.


In my audio seminars, I offer exercises and techniques you can use to liberate, access, and employ your imagination and your power in your life.


It’s all based on a platform of individual freedom. That’s the launching pad.


No one ever got very far by only thinking they SHOULD live through imagination. They also have to WANT TO.


I call this the great adventure. It marks a great shift from Matrix to individual power.


Individual power means, among other things, that you, making your own way, inventing your own path—actually DOING IT—become responsible for your own actions. Because you want to be responsible for them.

Breaking News: Click here to access all the articles on this FDA Genocide Murder news story.

With the recent revelation (exposed by yours truly) that FDA knows the drugs it’s approving are killing Americans at the rate of 100,000 a year (*), it’s time to shut down the buildings at Agency headquarters, fire all the employees, fumigate the place, and start over.


(*) Note: All articles pertaining to this breaking story have been placed under the “FDA category” on this blog (in typical reverse chronological blog order).


If we had a Department of Justice, I’d say prosecute the FDA offenders for mass murder, but DOJ is too busy putting pot smokers in jail, or selling guns to Mexican drug cartels, or something.


The FDA literally considers the pharmaceutical industry its Client, to which it owes remarkable and steadfast allegiance, through thick and thin (and it’s always thick), so shutting down the FDA would solve that corrupt love affair.


The close-out of this terminally corrupt Agency would also silence the tower of bullshit that ceaselessly pumps out limited hangouts to explain why drug after drug is killing and maiming Americans.


My number-one all-time hangout was voiced by FDA Commissioner David Kessler, in 1993 (JAMA): “If an adverse event occurs in perhaps one in 5,000 or even one in 1,000 users, it could be missed in a clinical trial but pose a serious safety problem when [the drug is] released in the market.”


I see. We should forget drug companies burying studies that show their drugs kill. Forget FDA drug-approval panels being stacked with doctors who take money from those drug companies. Forget researchers literally inventing diseases and disorders that “require” new drugs. No, it’s just that pesky one in a thousand in trials that has a bad reaction that’s missed. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.


But hey. Only a million Americans die every decade from the drugs. Only 20 million experience strokes, heart attacks, neurological damage, etc., from the drugs.


And it’s only the FDA who looks the other way and instead goes after sellers of food supplements, which kill nobody.


The FDA. We’re looking at a criminal racket. Posing as Science.


Exhibit 1, the smoking gun, is the FDA’s own web page on which it admits the 100,000 yearly deaths. Google “FDA, Why Learn About Adverse Drug Reactions.”


I’m ready to roll out Exhibit 2. This one takes a bit of thought, so follow closely as I take you through it.


In the last few months, I’ve offered devastating evidence that all so-called mental disorders are sheer inventions, brazenly concocted by committees of psychiatrists. These committees arrange menus of human behaviors and label them with names like Oppositional Defiance Disorder.




Never has been. Not for ADHD, not for schizophrenia, not for clinical depression, not for Bipolar, not for any of 300 billable diagnoses shrinks hand out to patients.




Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.


For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of “research.”


Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these fictional disorders, are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.


But we have a mind-boggling twist. One of the great psychiatric honchos, who has been out in front inventing mental disorders, has gone public. He’s blown the whistle on himself and his colleagues.


His name is Dr. Allen Frances, and he made VERY interesting statements to Gary Greenberg, author of a Wired article: “Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness.” (Dec.27, 2010).


Dr. Allen Frances is the man who, in 1994, headed up the project to write the latest edition of the psychiatric bible, the DSM-IV. This tome defines and labels and describes every official mental disorder in the known universe. The DSM-IV eventually listed 297 of them.


In an April 19, 1994, New York Times piece, “Scientist At Work,” Daniel Goleman called Frances “Perhaps the most powerful psychiatrist in America at the moment…”


Well, sure. If you’re sculpting the entire canon of diagnosable mental disorders for your colleagues, for insurers, for the government, for pharma (who will sell the drugs matched up to the 297 DSM-IV diagnoses), you’re right up there in the pantheon.


Long after the DSM-IV had been put into print, Dr. Frances talked to Wired’s Greenberg and said the following:


There is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.”




That’s on the order of the designer of the Hindenburg, looking at the burned rubble on the ground, remarking, “Well, I knew there would be a problem.”


After a suitable pause, Dr. Frances remarked to Greenberg, “These concepts [of distinct mental disorders] are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the borders.”


Wait, there’s more.


It’s another nugget, this time from PBS Frontline. The program was: “Does ADHD Exist?”


PBS FRONTLINE INTERVIEWER: Skeptics say that there’s no biological marker—that it [ADHD] is the one condition out there where there is no blood test, and that no one knows what causes it.


BARKLEY (Dr. Russell Barkley, professor of psychiatry and neurology at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center): That’s tremendously naïve, and it shows a great deal of illiteracy about science and about the mental health professions. A disorder doesn’t have to have a blood test to be valid. If that were the case, all mental disorders would be invalid…There is no lab test for anymental disorder right now in our science. That doesn’t make them invalid.




Actually, Dr. Barkley, that DOES make them invalid. And you just admitted, out in the open, that all mental disorders are concocted. Congratulations.


Yes, people have problems. Yes, people suffer and feel pain and confusion. Yes. We all understand that. But carving up human emotion and behavior into neat categories of “mental disorders” is one of the great con jobs of our time.


Especially since, what follows from these gratuitous diagnoses is TOXIC DRUGS, drugs that maim and destroy lives.


If you want the evidence, start combing the adverse effects of drugs like Prozac, Ritalin, Zoloft, Paxil, Lithium, Valproate, Risperdal.


All right. This is all background for the payoff.


Should we say the FDA experts are ignorant and confused, are well-meaning bumblers, or should we face the obvious truth and say, instead, that THEY KNOW ALL THESE MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, THEY KNOW THERE ARE NO LEGITIMATE TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS?


The answer is obvious. THEY KNOW.


And yet they continue to approve, as safe and effective, all the toxic psychiatric drugs that treat these NON-EXISTENT conditions.


So here we have a compound crime. The disorders are fictional. And the drugs are toxic. And nobody at FDA blows the whistle. The silence is deafening.


Does this make you squirm a little? I know. We’re supposed to cut people a break. We’re supposed to say, reflexively, maybe they just don’t understand, they want to do the right thing but they’re making a mistake. They’re basically good people who are confused.




In a half-sane world, the following conversation would take place:


SENATOR BLAH-BLAH: Dr. Johnson, you have served on many FDA panels that have approved psychiatric drugs as safe and effective. Is that correct?


DR. JOHNSON: Yes, Senator.


SENATOR BLAH-BLAH: But now, under great stress, you’ve come forward to make a statement.


DR. JOHNSON: That’s right.


SENATOR BLAH-BLAH: You’re telling this Committee that none of the mental disorders these drugs are supposed to treat are real.


DR. JOHNSON: That’s correct, sir.


SENATOR BLAH-BLAH: And you’re also saying, under oath, that you have many colleagues at the FDA who know these mental disorders are fictions, that none of the disorders are diagnosed through legitimate tests.


DR. JOHNSON: Absolutely, Senator. It’s common knowledge at FDA that there are no tests. It’s also common knowledge among many doctors around the world.


SENATOR BLAH-BLAH: But you’re also here today to say something about the drugs.


DR. JOHNSON: They’re toxic, sir. Every one of them.


SENATOR BLAH-BLAH: This is a titanic revelation.


DR. JOHNSON: It is, sir. But only because it hasn’t been voiced in a public forum before. Everything I’m telling you is widely known.


This is what we’re talking about. This is the open secret.


And the FDA knows the secret.


And they’re doing nothing about it.


It’s yet another reason why they are a criminal organization. A mafia. They know how to pretty themselves up. They know how to speak nonsensical technical language. They know how to appear authoritative. But they’re a mafia.


And if you want an accomplice before, during, and after the fact, look no further than several miles away from FDA headquarters, where the Department of Justice makes its home. They, too, do nothing. THEY KNOW, TOO. Through their knowledge, they become a functioning part of the RICO operation that sustains grave injury and massive death-counts in Pharmaceutical America.

Breaking News: Click here to access all the articles on this FDA Genocide Murder news story.

Six days ago, I broke a story about the FDA. On one of its own web pages, the agency admits that medical drugs kill 100,000 Americans a year.


Of course, none of those drugs would have reached the public, if the FDA had ruled them out as dangerous. The FDA is the single entity responsible for certifying medical drugs as safe and effective. On its web page, the FDA neglected to mention that fact.


Imagine this. You go to an FBI web page and read the following: “Murders committed by FBI agents are the third leading cause of homicides in America every year.”


Wouldn’t that set off alarm bells? Wouldn’t there be a public outcry? Wouldn’t the the press go crazy with the story?


Yet somehow, the FDA gets away with its crimes, its homicides. There are no alarm bells, no arrests, no hearings, no public statements, no press reactions, no shakeups at the Agency.


It’s a miracle.


As I’ve been saying and writing for a decade now, the power of the medical cartel is gigantic.


When I was running for a Congressional seat from the 29th District of California, in 1994, and during my participation in the Health Freedom movement of that period, I insisted we had to take the attack to the FDA. We had to make their crimes public.


I was told by the people who were leading the charge for Health Freedom that priority had to be given to passing a law that would protect us all from attacks on nutritional supplements. Then, when we had that law, we could think about going after the FDA.


Well, we got the law, which only gave us temporary protection, and afterward, there was no “going after the FDA.” It was suddenly a dead issue.


I remember the people who said, “Don’t attack the FDA.” I remember their attitudes, their faces, their words. They were not my friends, and they weren’t your friends. Some of them were yuppies selling “let’s be nice” New Age sentiment. A few were most likely plants who had infiltrated the Health Freedom movement to water it down.


Various liars sell their lies through various strategies.


I assure you, there are doctors out there who know the statistics on medically caused death in the US. They know about the drugs that kill. They know what’s going on. They know the FDA is accountable. They remain silent. They feel no pressure to make a public statement. They’re living under the umbrella of protection provided by the government and the press and the medical system. These doctors are silent witnesses to ongoing mass murder. Just as the FDA is a silent witness to its own mass-murdering practices. And of course, the doctors write the prescriptions for the drugs.


Obama, Bush, Clinton; none of these men have indicated the slightest awareness of the “problem.” Did they know? Do they know? Just as I predicted, correctly, that the FDA knows, I say these men do know. They prefer to remain silent as well. They don’t want to touch this genocidal crime. They don’t have the character or the courage.


Presidents and deans of medical schools know. Teachers at these schools know. Pharmaceutical executives know. Medical researchers know. The CDC knows. The World Health Organization knows. Editors and reporters at major press outlets know. The DEA knows. The US Dept. of Justice knows.


And now, a growing segment of the Internet knows. Will this story, finally, build into an irresistible roar? Or will it again sink back into the shadows?


A Matrix of hypnotic effect and cognitive dissonance is the obstacle. People find it extremely difficult to believe that a federal agency, in broad daylight, year after year, countenances and sustains the unnecessary deaths of 100,000 people per year.


People find it extremely difficult to believe that, were such a story true, they would not have heard about it already.


People want to believe that a crime of this boggling magnitude would already have been prosecuted to the full extent of the law.


People want to believe the secular religion known as Medicine is devoted to healing in all its forms.


People want to believe that, since doctors can put accident victims back together in one piece and can set broken bones and diagnose tumors and temporarily reduce inflammation, the practice of medicine must be uniformly successful across the board.


To shatter all these firmly held conviction in one fell swoop is too much for many people to absorb.


I want to correct an inadvertent impression about the FDA story. I have no reason to believe the FDA is admitting to its own crimes or that it is thumbing its nose at the public by allowing its web page to remain standing. I think someone at the FDA made a serious mistake (or was trying to get word out) by posting that web page. It was placed online as a come-on for an educational module about adverse drug effects. The module link no longer works. A few days ago, I was forwarded data that appear to be from the module. The data are rife with excuses and explanations for the 100,000 deaths per year—patients self-medicating, incorrect drug-combining, doctors’ prescribing errors. None of this could possibly add up to 100,000 deaths a year, every year. No, it is the FDA approval of drugs that are lethal to begin with that is the cause of the holocaust. And if and when the FDA learns how exposed they are, they will take that web page down.


Since I posed my article six days ago, the story has blown open at Infowars (click here to access the video — and, see also this article), the Robert Scott Bell show (click here to access the podcast — and, see also this article), The Corbett Report (link forthcoming), and Natural News (click here). Other websites have followed suit. It remains to be seen how far the story will travel.


Keep in mind that, as the FDA approves drug after lethal drug, it also attacks nutritional supplements, and it attacks genuinely promising treatments for “cash cow” diseases.


Here is an illustration of such a promising treatment. The following information comes from Daniel Haley’s brilliant book, Politics in Healing: The Suppression and Manipulation of American Medicine.


Haley recounts how a 1991 clinical trial of the innovative and “alternative” cancer medicine, hydrazine sulfate (HS), was rigged.

Rigged to fail.

A spectacularly promising medicine, HS had shown good results in trials at Harbor/UCLA hospital and in Russia. NCI felt obligated to test the drug. But there was a catch.

The drug’s discoverer, Dr. Joseph Gold, had found that HS could provoke very dangerous effects if patients were taking other drugs, especially tranquilizers. Several warnings were given to NCI before it began its test. The warnings were explicit. Patients could DIE if they were taking tranquilizers.

It turned out that none of the NCI patients were warned about this. It turned out that 94% of those patients were in fact on tranquilizers.

Barry Tice, an investigator for the US General Accounting Office (GAO), looked into the NCI trial of hydrazine sulfate after it was over. He called Dr. Gold and told him he had found a “smoking gun.” There was an internal NCI memo which showed that NCI was well aware of the problems involved in the drug combinations.

But the GAO did not back up its own investigator. The final GAO report on the NCI clinical trials of hydrazine sulfate simply accused NCI of sloppy bookkeeping.

In the June 1995 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology, a letter from the NCI was published. The letter stated that NCI had omitted mentioning, in its own published account of its cancer study, that 94% of the patients had been on tranquilizers. But, because this letter did NOT mention how dangerous that situation was, it looked like NCI was simply admitting to a technical and unimportant mistake. A clerical error.

So what did happen to the patients in the NCI hydrazine sulfate study?

In his book, Politics in Healing, Dan Haley reports that all the patients in the study died.

The drug, hydrazine sulfate, a competitor for chemotherapy dollars, was eliminated. Hydrazine sulfate is a cheap, widely available, unpatentable substance. No profit there.

Was this story splashed across the front pages of major newspapers in America? Did the “great men” of television, those holy anchors, insist on covering it with the emphasis it deserved? Of course not.

The story was originally unearthed and published in Penthouse, by reporter Jeff Kamen, who should have won a Pulitzer for it, but won nothing.

And NCI has a rule that none of its patients in clinical trials can have their names revealed.


There is more to this incredible story. Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione’s wife, Kathy Keeton, who was the founder of Longevity, a magazine that was part of the Guccione empire, was diagnosed with “galloping breast cancer” in 1995. She was given 6 weeks to live.

She refused chemotherapy and became a VERY high-profile case of a person taking hydrazine sulfate instead.

She also chose radiation to reduce one of her many tumors–a growth around her bile duct. Dr. Gold said the dose of radiation should be small, because hydrazine sulfate would enhance the effect of the radiation. But the radiologist gave her the full dose instead, burned her liver and caused later scarring.

Overall, Keeton recovered. In fact, a year after her predicted death date, her cancer was in full remission. The hydrazine sulfate was a remarkable success.

Guccione ran ads in Penthouse, asking for families of the dead victims in the NCI experiment to come forward and join a class-action suit against NCI.

Guccione estimated there had been 600 victims in the NCI clinical test.

In October 1997, Kathy Keeton went into a major and well-respected NY hospital for surgery. From all accounts, this operation had nothing to do with cancer. Amazingly, complications occurred. She died.

Most of America assumed she had succumbed to cancer. Further “proof” that hydrazine sulfate did not work.

Predictably, the FDA got into the act. On April 23, 1998, that federal agency raided a distributor of hydrazine sulfate, Great Lakes Metabolics, in Rochester, Minnesota. In 2000, the FDA shut down the company that supplied hydrazine sulfate to Great Lakes, and Great Lakes went out of business.

In 1996, when hydrazine sulfate (HS) was still very much in the public spotlight, Dr. Gold stated he received 20 phone calls in one day from doctors at Sloan Kettering, the world’s number one center for toxic chemotherapy research and treatment. These doctors wanted to obtain HS on the sly for their patients. Gold stated that roughly 2/3 of the patients were from the doctors’ families. And six of these doctors had refused to give HS to other patients at Sloan Kettering. The phrase, scum of the Earth, comes to mind.

Author Haley offers a dozen patient testimonials re HS. They are anecdotes, to be sure, but they are remarkable.

Example: “Oncologist report in today. No cancer anywhere, after two and a half months on HS and vitamins/minerals and supplements. They have no idea where cancer went.”

Example: “Seven weeks on hydrazine sulfate. Brain and lung lesions disappeared.”

Example: “I purchased some HS for my sister a few weeks ago. Too early to tell, but she went from near death at the hospital on chemo to a campground some place, with a fishing pole.”

HS studies at Harbor/UCLA and in Russia did not cure everyone, not by a long shot. There are questions about those protocols too, because ordinary foods like raisins are incompatible with HS–and who knows what the patients were fed.

No well-designed studies have ever been done using HS on patients in early stages of cancer, where the results might be even better.

More notes on HS (hydrazine sulfate)…

One session of conventional chemo costs enough to pay for 10 years of treatment with HS.

In 1973, a doctor with a terminal Hodgkins patient approached Dr. Gold for help. Gold recommended a dosage level. In a few weeks, the patient was up and around, not dead. By October of 1973, 1000 patients in the US were on HS.

Dean Burke, head of cell chemistry at NCI, said in 1974 that HS was “the most remarkable anticancer agent I have come across in my 45 years experience in cancer…this material is so cheap because it is made by the trainload for industrial purposes.”

In September 1973, Sloan Kettering (SK), the most prestigious cancer center in the world, started an HS study on terminal patients. The lead physician, Dr. Manuel Ochoa, had agreed to give each patient 60 mg a day for 3 days and then 60 mg 3 times a day after that—but Dr. Gold learned Ochoa was changing the protocol drastically—he was giving 1 mg the first day, then 2 mg the next day, and so on, building up to a top of 30 mg—-except in some cases he actually gave patients 120-190 mg a day—brutal overdoses.

In 1975 SK announced HS was worthless.

Dr. Gold then did a study for Calbiochem, a drug company. 70% of 84 patients gained weight and had less pain. HS was, in fact, designed to alleviate wasting away in the first place. 17% of the patients showed tumor regression or a stabilization of their condition for one year.

In 1975, Russian researchers published two positive study findings on HS.

In 1976, the American Cancer Society (ACS) put HS on its dreaded blacklist of “unapproved” cancer treatments. ACS neglected to mention it owned 50% of a competing and highly toxic cancer drug, 5FU.

By 1978, the FDA was cracking down on HS. 5000 patients in the US were on the medicine. The FDA falsely stated that HS caused bone marrow toxicity. In fact, conventional chemo—approved by the FDA—destroys bone marrow.

Jeff Kamen, the reporter who got the HS story out in Penthouse? Here is how he became interested in the first place. His mother Erna came back from cancer with HS. She gained 23 pounds and was doing much better. Then her doctor convinced her to stop HS and go on an experimental chemo drug. In five days, she was dead.

“The function of the artist is to provide what life does not.” — Tom Robbins, Another Roadside Attraction


“Those people who recognize that imagination is reality’s master we call ‘sages,’ and those act upon it, we call ‘artists.'” — Tom Robbins, Skinny Legs and All


JUNE 11, 2011. No guts, no glory. Pursuers of any great goal can tell you that.


In the human psyche, from the moment a newborn baby emerges into the light of day, he/she has a desire for magic.


We are told this is an early fetish that fades away as the experience of the world sets in. As maturity evolves. As practical reality is better understood.


In most areas of psychology, sensible adjustment to practical reality is a great prize to be won by the patient. It marks the passage from child to adult. It is hailed as a therapeutic triumph.


In truth, the desire for magic never goes away, and the longer it is buried, the greater the price a person pays.


A vaccine against a disease can mask the visible signs of that disease, but under the surface, the immune system may be carrying on a low-level chronic war against toxic elements of the vaccine. And the effects of the war can manifest in odd forms.


So it is with the inoculation of reality aimed at suppressing magic.


One of the byproducts of the “reality shot” is depression.


The person feels cut off from the very feeling and urge he once considered a hallmark of life. Therefore, chronic sadness. And of course, one can explain that sadness in a variety of ways, none of which gets to the heart of the matter.


It is assumed that so-called primitive cultures placed magic front and center because they couldn’t do better. They couldn’t formulate a “true and rational” religion with a church and monks and collection plate and a European choir and an array of pedophiles. They couldn’t fathom what real science was.


Their impulse for magic had to be defamed and reduced and discredited. Why? Obviously, because the Westerners who were poking through ancient cultures like demented professors had already discredited magic in themselves—they had put it on a dusty shelf in a room in a cellar beyond the reach of their own memory. But they couldn’t leave it alone. They had to keep worrying it, scratching it, and so they journeyed thousands of miles to find it somewhere else—and then they scoffed at it.


And we wonder why, under the banner of organized religion, there has been so much killing. It’s because, at a deep level, the adherents know they’ve sold their souls and they’re depressed, angry, resentful, remorseful, and they want to assuage and expiate their guilt through violence.


The urge for magic is forever.


And yet the charade goes on. While paying homage and lip service to ordinary practical reality seasoned with a bit of fairy-tale organized religion, people actually want to change reality, they want to reveal their latent paranormal power, they want to get outside reality, they want to create realities that, by conventional standards, are deemed impossible.


They want to find and use their own magic.


In our modern culture, we’re taught that everything is learned as a system. That, you could say, is the underlying assumption of education. It has far-reaching consequences. It leads to the SYSTEMATIZING OF THE MIND. The mind is shaped to accommodate this premise.


If I want to know something, I have to learn it. Somebody has to teach it to me. They will teach it as a system. I will learn the system. I will elevate the very notion of systems. EVERYTHING WILL BE A SYSTEM.


In the long run, that’s a heavy loser. That’ll get you a lump of coal in a sock, a spiritual cardboard box to live in.


As I reconstruct the legend of Merlin, one of my favorite guys, I put him in my sights as the one who taught himself magic by abandoning all systems. That was his genius. Don’t misunderstand. He didn’t turn himself into a blithering idiot. He just stepped outside systems. He went down roads based on his own naked desire to make magic.


To modern man, this makes no sense.


The intellectual enrolls at Harvard, he studies anthropology for six years, he flies to a jungle in South America, he digs up remnants of a lost culture, he infers they performed arcane ceremonies six times a week, he writes monographs—and he concludes they were a very picturesque society with fascinating customs and totems, and their brand of magic can best be understood as an inevitable consequence of their matriarchal organization, which itself was an accommodation to rainfall levels.


The anthropologist takes two Paxil and goes off to teach a class on the meaning of ancient eyebrow trimming in Tierra Del Fuego.


The rocket of real magic is still on the launching pad. It’s waiting.


Last night, Wilmington police, aided by a SWAT team, invaded the house of John Q Jones. ‘We warned Mr. Jones,’ said Captain Frank Brock, ‘that he was still living his life enveloped by systems. We told him it was time for him to recognize his desire to make magic and begin that journey. Hopefully, our message got through.’”


Systems are wonderful things. They produce results. They take us into technological triumphs. They help us become more rational. But when they are overdone, when the mind itself becomes shaped like a system, it reaches a dead-end. Then the mind works against the unquenchable desire for magic. Then society is organized as a tighter and tighter system and turns into a madhouse.


And then people say, “Maybe machines can actually think and choose and decide. Maybe machines are alive. What would happen if we grafted computers on to our brains? It might be wonderful.”


People move in this direction after their own minds have been shaped, like putty, into systems. They don’t see much difference between themselves and machines.


When you have a world run by a million machine-systems, you encounter horrific problems. One of those problems stems from the fact that each system gets things a little bit wrong, each system is skewed to one side just a little bit—and when you add up all these little wrong bits, you get a real threat to basic survival; the whole ship of civilization is tilting dangerously in the water.


Far worse than that, the deep desire for magic in every individual is squelched. That’s the real problem. So the first order of business is the restoration of imagination, from which all magic flows. Imagination is sitting right there, always ready to go, waiting.


Imagination is saying, “The mind has been shaped into a system? I can undo that. I can liberate the mind and make it into an adventurous vessel. I can provide untold amounts of new energy.”


Life is waiting for imagination to revolutionize it down to its core.

Medical liars lying about medicine

Medical liars lying about medicine

Inventing medical reality

May 19, 2012


Breaking News: Click here to access all the articles on this FDA Genocide Murder news story.


Now that I’ve shown the FDA is completely aware their approved medical drugs are killing 100,000 Americans a year, we move to the next fact:

They’re also aware that hundreds and thousands of published studies are FAKE. Why? Because those studies “proved” THE DRUGS WERE SAFE.

See how the crime proliferates?

Analogy: During a murder trial, a witness claims he saw the defendant at the time of the murder eating ice cream on the other side of town, and he talked to the defendant and they went bowling—but later in the trial, the prosecution unveils a video showing the defendant shooting the victim. Therefore, the witness was committing perjury. Everybody knows that.

That’s what we have here. The FDA knows that huge numbers of studies on drug safety were faked. Faked studies are a crime. It’s called fraud. And when the fraud leads to the deaths of people taking the drug, that’s a lot worse than fraud.

In this case, the FDA knows the studies are faked, BUT THEY DON’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THEY LET IT RIDE. That makes them an accomplice to the crime.

This is all quite simple, when you pick it apart. Any idiot can see the truth. Those of you who heard me on Alex Jones yesterday know I wasn’t polite about these crimes. Should we tread daintily when we know the federal agency responsible for drug safety is allowing 100,00 people to die every year? This is murder. It’s not really negligent homicide, not when it keeps happening. It’s murder. It’s on the order of a Nazi war crime.

Try this image: you are a gatekeeper. Your job, on the first day of every year, is to unlock the gate and leave it open, so people can pass through. But you know that, when you open the gate, 100,000 people will die in the following year. Yet, every January First, you keep opening the gate.

Okay? Case closed.


It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” — Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.

“The secret of acting is sincerity. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.” — George Burns

In light of my recent release of THE MATRIX REVEALED, the information in this piece takes on special meaning. The faking of medical reality is, at bottom, an operation designed to bolster the power of the medical cartel, one of the most important forces on the planet.

What do doctors rely on? What do medical schools rely on? What do medical journals and mainstream medical reporters and drug companies and the FDA rely on?

The sanctity of published clinical trials of drugs. These trials determine whether the drugs are safe and effective. The drugs are tested on human volunteers. The results are tabulated. The trial is described in a paper that is printed by a medical journal.

This is science. This is rationality. This is the rock. Without these studies, the whole field of medical research would fall apart in utter chaos.

Upon this rock, and hence through media, the public becomes aware of the latest breakthrough, the newest medicine. Through doctors in their offices, the public finds out what drugs they should take—and their doctors know because their doctors have read the published reports in the medical journals, the reports that describe the clinical trials. Or if the doctors haven’t actually read the reports, they’ve been told about them.

It all goes back to this rock.

And when mainstream advocates attack so-called alternative or natural health, they tend to mention that their own sacred profession is based on real science, on studies, on clinical trials.

One doctor told me, “The clinical trials and published studies are what keep us from going back to the Stone Age.”

So now let me quote an article in the NY Review of Books (May 12, 2011) by Helen Epstein, “Flu Warning: Beware the Drug Companies.”

Six years ago, John Ioannidis, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Greece, found that nearly half of published articles in scientific journals contained findings that were false, in the sense that independent researchers couldn’t replicate them. The problem is particularly widespread in medical research, where peer-reviewed articles in medical journals can be crucial in influencing multimillion- and sometimes multibillion-dollar spending decisions. It would be surprising if conflicts of interest did not sometimes compromise editorial neutrality, and in the case of medical research, the sources of bias are obvious. Most medical journals receive half or more of their income from pharmaceutical company advertising and reprint orders, and dozens of others [journals] are owned by companies like Wolters Kluwer, a medical publisher that also provides marketing services to the pharmaceutical industry.”

Here’s another quote from the same article:

The FDA also relies increasingly upon fees and other payments from the pharmaceutical companies whose products the agency is supposed to regulate. This could contribute to the growing number of scandals in which the dangers of widely prescribed drugs have been discovered too late. Last year, GlaxoSmithKline’s diabetes drug Avandia was linked to thousands of heart attacks, and earlier in the decade, the company’s antidepressant Paxil was discovered to exacerbate the risk of suicide in young people. Merck’s painkiller Vioxx was also linked to thousands of heart disease deaths. In each case, the scientific literature gave little hint of these dangers. The companies have agreed to pay settlements in class action lawsuits amounting to far less than the profits the drugs earned on the market. These precedents could be creating incentives for reduced vigilance concerning the side effects of prescription drugs in general.”

Also from the NY Review of Books, here are two quotes from Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, perhaps the most prestigious medical journal in the world. (“Drug Companies and Doctors: A Story of Corruption”)

Consider the clinical trials by which drugs are tested in human subjects. Before a new drug can enter the market, its manufacturer must sponsor clinical trials to show the Food and Drug Administration that the drug is safe and effective, usually as compared with a placebo or dummy pill. The results of all the trials (there may be many) are submitted to the FDA, and if one or two trials are positive—that is, they show effectiveness without serious risk—the drug is usually approved, even if all the other trials are negative.”

Here is another Angell statement:

In view of this control and the conflicts of interest that permeate the enterprise, it is not surprising that [drug] industry-sponsored trials published in medical journals consistently favor sponsors’ drugs—largely because negative results are not published, positive results are repeated in slightly different forms, and a positive spin is put on even negative results. A review of seventy-four clinical trials of antidepressants, for example, found that thirty-seven of thirty-eight positive studies were published. But of the thirty-six negative studies, thirty-three were either not published or published in a form that conveyed a positive outcome.”

It turns out that the source of the informational pipeline that feeds the entire perception of pharmaceutical medicine is a rank fraud.

It would be on the order of an intelligence agency discovering that the majority of its operatives were actually working for the other side.

And then continuing on with business as usual.

The Matrix Revealed

Sometimes the body is dead even though it keeps on walking. It can smile and nod and perform basic functions—a zombie—but it is doing so only because certain implacable criminals back it up and give it a machine-like force.

We have the clinical trials of studies on drugs and they are published in top-rank journals. We are the epitome of science.”

Yes, false science. Riddled from top to bottom with lies.

Perhaps this will help the next time a friend, pretending he actually knows anything, tells you pharmaceutical medicine is a resounding success.

If you need more, cite Dr. Barbara Starfield’s famous study, “Is US health really the best in the world?” Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000. Starfield concludes that 225,000 people are killed by the medical system in the US every year—106,000 by FDA-approved medicines. That latter figure would work out to over a MILLION deaths per decade.

A final note: The august editors of medical journals have a game they can play. Suppose a drug company has just finished writing up the results of a clinical drug trial and has submitted the piece to a journal for publication. The editor knows the company carried out a half-dozen other such trials on the same drug…and they didn’t look good. The drug caused wild fluctuations in blood pressure and blood sugar. There were heart attacks. Strokes. But this ONE study, the one submitted for publication, looks very positive. The editor knows if he prints it and forgets about “ethics,” the drug company will order re-prints of the piece from him and distribute them to doctors all over the world, and to reporters, professors, government officials. The drug company will order and pay for so many re-prints, the medical journal can make $700,000 from publishing THAT ONE STUDY. Let’s see. In one hand, the editor sees: I won’t publish it=no money. In the other hand, he sees: I’ll publish it=$700,000. What to do?
