The incredible liars who lie about psychiatry

The liars who lie about psychiatry

by Jon Rappoport

October 14, 2014

“The Reality Manufacturing Company not only turns out the past, present, and future for mass consumption. It explains why things are the way they are. It appoints itself the master of attributing causes, the king of cause and effect.” (The Magician Awakes, Jon Rappoport)

I’m posting this piece to derail the notion that “the authorities” know what causes things.

In the Ebola hysteria, millions of people blithely accept the notion that the “cases and the deaths” are caused by the Ebola virus.

“What else could it be? The authorities must be right.”

Here is an analogy that is far more shocking dangerous, and long-lived than Ebola.


If psychiatrists are experts on the human mind, mice can pilot oil tankers across the ocean.

An open secret has been slowly bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.


And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

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 “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. Under the radar, one of the great psychiatric stars, who has been out in front in inventing mental disorders, went public. He blew the whistle on himself and his colleagues. And for several years, almost no one noticed.

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).

Major media never picked up on the interview in any serious way. It never became a scandal.

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. 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.”

Frances might have been referring to the fact that his baby, the DSM-IV, had rearranged earlier definitions of ADHD and Bipolar to permit many MORE diagnoses, leading to a vast acceleration of drug-dosing with highly powerful and toxic compounds.

Finally, at the end of the Wired interview, Frances flew off into a bizarre fantasy:

“Diagnosis [as spelled out in the DSM-IV] is part of the magic…you know those medieval maps? In the places where they didn’t know what was going on, they wrote ‘Dragons live here’…we have a dragon’s world here. But you wouldn’t want to be without the map.”

Translation: Patients need hope for the healing of their troubles; so even if we psychiatrists are shooting blanks and pretending to know one kind of mental disorder from another, even if we’re inventing these mental-disorder definitions based on no biological or chemical diagnostic tests—it’s a good thing, because patients will then believe and have hope; they’ll believe it because psychiatrists place a name on their problems…

Needless to say, this has nothing to do with science.

If I were an editor at one of the big national newspapers, and one of my reporters walked in and told me, “The most powerful psychiatrist in America just said the DSM is sheer b.s. but it’s still important,” I think I’d make room on the front page.

If the reporter then added, “This shrink was in charge of creating the DSM-IV,” I’d clear more room above the fold.

If the reporter went on to explain that the whole profession of psychiatry would collapse overnight if the DSM was discredited, I’d call for a special section of the paper to be printed.

I’d tell the reporter to get ready to pound on this story day after day for months. I’d tell him to track down all the implications of Dr. Frances’ statements.

I’d open a bottle of champagne to toast the soon-to-be-soaring sales of my newspaper.

And then, of course, the next day I’d be fired.

Because there are powerful multi-billion-dollar interests at stake, and those people don’t like their deepest secrets exposed in the press.

And as I walked out of my job, I’d see a bevy of blank-eyed pharmaceutical executives marching into the office of the paper’s publisher, ready to read the riot act to him.

Dr. Frances’ work on the DSM-IV allowed for MORE toxic drugs to be prescribed, because the definition of Bipolar was expanded to include more people.

Adverse effects of Valproate (given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

acute, life-threatening, and even fatal liver toxicity;

life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas;

brain damage.

Adverse effects of Lithium (also given for a Bipolar diagnosis) include:

intercranial pressure leading to blindness;

peripheral circulatory collapse;

stupor and coma.

Adverse effects of Risperdal (given for “Bipolar” and “irritability stemming from autism”) include:

serious impairment of cognitive function;


restless muscles in neck or face, tremors (may be indicative of motor brain damage).

Dr. Frances’ label-juggling act also permitted the definition of ADHD to expand, thereby opening the door for greater and greater use of toxic Ritalin (and other similar compounds) as the treatment of choice.

So what about Ritalin?

In 1986, The International Journal of the Addictions published a most important literature review by Richard Scarnati. It was called “An Outline of Hazardous Side Effects of Ritalin (Methylphenidate)” [v.21(7), pp. 837-841].

Scarnati listed a large number of adverse affects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms.

For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:

Paranoid delusions
Paranoid psychosis
Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis
Activation of psychotic symptoms
Toxic psychosis
Visual hallucinations
Auditory hallucinations
Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences
Effects pathological thought processes
Extreme withdrawal
Terrified affect
Started screaming
Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect amphetamine-like effects
Psychic dependence
High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug
Decreased REM sleep
When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia
Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.

A recent survey revealed that a high percentage of children diagnosed with bipolar had first received a diagnosis of ADHD. This is informative, because Ritalin and other speed-type drugs are given to kids who are slapped with the ADHD label. Speed, sooner or later, produces a crash. This is easy to call “clinical depression.”

Then comes Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft. These drugs can produce temporary highs, followed by more crashes. The psychiatrist notices the up and down pattern—and then produces a new diagnosis of Bipolar (manic-depression) and prescribes other drugs, including Valproate and Lithium.

In the US alone, there are at least 300,000 cases of motor brain damage incurred by people who have been prescribed so-called anti-psychotic drugs (aka “major tranquilizers”). Risperdal (mentioned above as a drug given to people diagnosed with Bipolar) is one of those major tranquilizers. (source: Toxic Psychiatry, Dr. Peter Breggin, St. Martin’s Press, 1991)

This psychiatric drug plague is accelerating across the land.

Where are the mainstream reporters and editors and newspapers and TV anchors who should be breaking this story and mercilessly hammering on it week after week? They are in harness.

And Dr. Frances is somehow let off the hook. He’s admitted in print that the whole basis of his profession is throwing darts at labels on a wall, and implies the “effort” is rather heroic—when, in fact, the effort leads to more and more poisonous drugs being dispensed to adults and children, to say nothing of the effect of being diagnosed with “a mental disorder.”

I’m not talking about “the mental-disease stigma,” the removal of which is one of Hillary Clinton’s missions in life. No, I’m talking about MOVING A HUMAN INTO THE SYSTEM, the medical apparatus, where the essence of the game is trapping that person to harvest his money, his time, his energy, and of course his health—as one new diagnosis follows on another, and one new toxic treatment after another is undertaken, from cradle to grave.

The result is a severely debilitated human being (if he survives), whose major claim to fame is his list of diseases and disorders.

Thank you, Dr. Frances.

Here is a smoking-gun statement made by another prominent mental-health expert, on an episode of PBS’ Frontline series. The episode 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, clinical professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston): 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 any mental disorder right now in our science. That doesn’t make them invalid. [Emphasis added]

Without intending to, Dr. Barkley blows an ear-shattering whistle on his own profession.

So let’s take Dr. Barkley to school. Medical science, and disease-research in particular, rests on the notion that you can make a diagnosis backed up by lab tests. If you can’t produce lab tests, you’re spinning fantasies.

These fantasies might be hopeful, they might be “educated guesses,” they might be launched from traditional centers of learning, they might be backed up by billions of dollars of grant money…but they’re still fantasies.

If I said the moon was made of green cheese, even if I were a Harvard professor, sooner or later someone would ask me to produce a sample of moon rock to be tested for “cheese qualities.” I might begin to feel nervous, I might want to tap dance around the issue, but I would have to submit the rock to a lab.

Dr. Barkley is essentially saying, “There is no lab test for any mental disorder. But if a test were the standard of proof, we wouldn’t have science at all, and that would mean our whole profession rests on nothing—and that is absurd, so therefore a test doesn’t matter.”

That logic is no logic at all. Barkley is proving the case against himself. He just doesn’t want to admit it.

Close to 50 years ago, psychiatry was dying out as a profession. Fewer and fewer people wanted to see a psychiatrist for help, for talk therapy. All sorts of new therapies were popping up. The competition was leaving medical psychiatry in the dust.

As Dr. Peter Breggin describes, in his landmark book, Toxic Psychiatry, a deal was struck. Drug companies would bankroll psychiatry and rescue it. These companies would pour money into professional conferences, journals, research. In return, they wanted “science” that would promote mental disease as a biological/chemical fact, a gateway into the drugs. Everyone would win—except the patient.

So the studies were rolled out, and the list of mental disorders expanded. The FDA was in on the deal as well, as evidenced by their drug “safety” approvals, in the face of the obvious damage these drugs were doing.

So this is how we arrived at where we are. This was the plan, and it worked.

Under the cover story, it was all fraud all the time. Without much of a stretch, you could say psychiatry has been the most widespread profiling operation in the history of the human race. Its goal has been to bring humans everywhere into its system. It hardly matters which label a person is painted with, as long as it adds up to a diagnosis and a prescription of drugs.

300 so-called mental disorders caused by…what? No lab evidence. No diagnostic tests. No blood tests, saliva tests, brain scans, genetic assays. No nothing.

But psychiatrists continue to assert they are the masters of causation. They know what’s behind “mental disorders.” They’re in charge.

What about the generalized “chemical imbalance” hypothesis stating that all mental disorders stem from such imbalances in the brain?

Dr. Ronald Pies, the editor-in-chief emeritus of the Psychiatric Times, laid that hypothesis to rest in the July 11, 2011, issue of the Times (“Psychiatry’s New Brain-Mind and the Legend of the ‘Chemical Imbalance’”) with this staggering admission:

“In truth, the ‘chemical imbalance’ notion was always a kind of urban legend — never a theory seriously propounded by well-informed psychiatrists.”



The point is, for decades the whole basis of psychiatric drug research, drug prescription, and drug sales has been: “we’re correcting a chemical imbalance in the brain.”

The problem was, researchers had never established a normal baseline for chemical balance. So they were shooting in the dark. Worse, they were faking a theory. Pretending they knew something when they didn’t.

In his 2011 piece in Psychiatric Times, Dr. Pies tries to cover his colleagues in the psychiatric profession with this fatuous remark:

“In the past 30 years, I don’t believe I have ever heard a knowledgeable, well-trained psychiatrist make such a preposterous claim [about chemical imbalance in the brain], except perhaps to mock it…the ‘chemical imbalance’ image has been vigorously promoted by some pharmaceutical companies, often to the detriment of our patients’ understanding.”

Absurd. First of all, many psychiatrists have explained and do explain to their patients that the drugs are there to correct a chemical imbalance.

And second, if all well-trained psychiatrists have known, all along, that the chemical-imbalance theory is a fraud…

…then why on earth have they been prescribing tons of drugs to their patients…

…since those drugs are developed on the false premise that they correct an imbalance?

Here’s what’s happening. The honchos of psychiatry are seeing the handwriting on the wall. Their game has been exposed. They’re taking heavy flack on many fronts.

The chemical imbalance theory is a fake. There are no defining physical tests for any of the 300 so-called mental disorders. All diagnoses are based on arbitrary clusters or menus of human behavior. The drugs are harmful, dangerous, toxic. Some of them induce violence. Suicide, homicide. Some of the drugs cause brain damage.

Psychiatry is a pseudo-pseudo science.

So the shrinks have to move into another model, another con, another fraud. And they’re looking for one.

For example, genes plus “psycho-social factors.” A mish-mash of more unproven science.

“New breakthrough research on the functioning of the brain is paying dividends and holds great promise…” Professional gibberish.

Meanwhile, the business model demands drugs for sale.

So even though the chemical-imbalance nonsense has been discredited, it will continue on as a dead man walking, a zombie.

Big Pharma isn’t going to back off. Trillions of dollars are at stake.

You can be sure major Pharma players are meeting behind closed doors with leaders of the American Psychiatric Association (APA). The mafia is making a house call.

They are reminding the APA that they have a deal. No cancellation allowed.

“You guys promoted the chemical-imbalance theory. That was the arrangement. So keep promoting it. We don’t care how many lies you have to tell. Don’t try to develop a conscience all of a sudden. This is business.”

The mafia doesn’t like it when people try to interrupt business.

power outside the matrix

Two questions always pop up when I write a critique of psychiatry. The first one is: psychiatric researchers are doing a massive amount of work studying brain function. They do have tests.

Yes, experimental tests. But NONE of those tests are contained in the DSM, the psychiatric bible, as the basis of the definition of ANY mental disorder. If the tests were conclusive, they would be heralded in the DSM. They aren’t.

The second question is: if all these mental disorders are fiction, why are so many people saddled with problems? Why are some people off the rails? Why are they crazy?

The list of potential answers is very long. A real practitioner would focus on one patient at a time and try to discover what has affected him to such a marked degree. For example:

Severe nutritional deficiency. Toxic dyes and colors in processed food. Ingestion of pesticides and herbicides. Profound sensitivities to certain foods. The ingestion of toxic pharmaceuticals. Life-altering damage as a result of vaccines. Exposure to environmental chemicals. Heavy physical and emotional abuse in the home or at school. Battlefield stress and trauma (also present in certain neighborhoods). Prior head injury. Chronic infection. Alcohol and street drugs. Debilitating poverty.

Other items could be added.

So…in this “Ebola crisis,” when the authorities—without relevant or reliable diagnostic tests—try to pin the cause as a virus, there is no reason to accept their assessment. No reason.

The announcement of a cause in any purported crisis should be the first occasion for doubt and independent investigation.

It’s a virus. It’s a chemical imbalance. It’s brain chemistry. It’s a mental disorder.

Spin, spin, spin, spin.

In the case of Ebola, if you want to understand precisely why the “science” is full of holes, and why people are dying, you can find a number of my articles at (click here for full access to all of my “Ebolagate” articles).

    • From Québec says:

      I’ll answer my own question.
      Maybe it’s because people have a low self-esteem. So they put the all the Scientists, doctors and the whole sheebang on a pedestal and are convinced that they MUST know better than them..

      • Sherlock says:

        Here in Canada, we have wonderful politicians huh? They are all corrupted. People will never learn. Pauline Marois replaced Charest, she was supposed to remove a bill, but what she did? Nothing. She just tried to divide us as usual. Language, religion, sexual orientation, etc. It’s so obvious.

        Mayor of Montreal caught for corruption. Same in Laval. The one in Toronto smoked crack, didn’t hate the company of prostitutes, and made death threats on camera. Nobody cares. Anyway, to answer your question: “How can this be”, I think apathy is a very serious problem. We live in a culture where people are more offended by swear words than they are by dangerous drugs given to young children, titanic frauds, slavery, famine, warfare, and the destruction of our environment.

    Just remember there are no intellectual property rights on natural medicine.
    Natural medicine would I think be the best way to cure any nutritional problems – colours in food, additives etc. Also, there has been studies that prove wheat in any form can cause major problems in the stomach and intestines, may lead to behavioural problems. The stomach has to be working well for good health.

  10. ozziethinker says:

    I disagree with you here, Jon.

    You have been unfair. In fact you have highlighted the flaw in science. Anyone that has researched the work of Goswami, who, in turn, postulates on possibilities from photon wave irregularities first discovered by Geoffrey Ingram Taylor, will understand empirical science is also “stacked”.

    Get out into the multiverse and Newtonian-Cartesian physics collapses in a heap.

    The reality is that psychology is not proto-science; it is BEYOND science. This means that ignorant populations are exposed because they must have faith. Did Glenn Gould perform (BBC 1970 recording) Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier” piano sonata better than Alfred Brendel’s second recording? Each played the same notes, but there was something else – some magic BEYOND SCIENCE.

    Psychology has opened a wider issue. That is medicine, in general. Is it medicine or is it poison? To answer that effectively, YOU CANNOT BE IGNORANT!!!!

    • mry says:

      Maybe so, but not a good enough reason to give people from cradle to grave poisons that are proven to basically destroy the human body (so called “therapy” with so called “anti-psychotics”, comes right after chemo-therapy in its toxicity to the human body), without really knowing what for, for profit and often with force.

      Also, many people who end up with a “schizophrenia” label, have been “diagnosed” with ADHD as a child, been given ADHD drugs, have received the “bipolar” label because of the drug induced crashes they have experienced. They then receive “bipolar” drugs (which are often the same ones so called “schizophrenics” get) that debilitate them even more and then they end up with the “schizophrenia” label and are drugged even more.

      When someone has been drugged his whole life, they will develop “real”, irreversible drug induced illnesses (brain damage for example) at some point (“Iatrogenic illness”).

      It is like a sinister degradation ceremony.

      This has also to do with the “medicalization” of “mental-illness”, which is prevalent in the “west” since the end of the 17th century. It has not always been this way.

  11. Sandy says:

    Jon, Have you ever read the book “Focusing” by Eugene T. Gendlin? It shows a person how to focus in a way of going inside to solve issues.
    This is a great book.

  12. tracykolenchuk says:

    There are many ‘mental illnesses’ that are caused by Unhealthiness. Unhealthiness can only be treated with health. We know that lead poisoning causes confusion and irritability. We know that Vitamin D deficiency increases depression. But I suspect that if you can identify the cause, it’s outside of the DMV, because it can’t be treated with drugs, only with health.

  13. tracykolenchuk says:

    I suspect suspect that any mental illness with a real cause does not fit in the DSM. If you can’t treat it with drugs, because the best treatment is health, then it’s not a ‘mental’ illness. Depression caused by vitamin deficiency isn’t a mental illness, it’s malnutrition. So it can’t be in the DSM. Of course doctors can prescribe drugs if they misdiagnose. The DSM helps with that. If you don’t try to explain it, then you can’t explain it, look it up in the DSM and prescribe away.

    • Charles says:

      You’re saying behavior can be an illness. No way pal. They’ve pulled this stunt relentlessly since the days of the witch hunts that mutated into modern psychiatry. Depression is real—but it is in no sense a “disease.” A boy sees his dog die. His response? He’s depressed. A man goes broke. His response? He’s depressed. A woman finds her husband has an affair. Does this make her depressed? Yes—but these are adverse circumstances—not “illnesses.” Psychiatry has no business making any comments about anything. You “treat” adverse circumstances with positive influences—none of which can be supplied by synthetic chemicals.

      • ozziethinker says:

        Charles, you have shown a sad display of ignorance.

        If someone grabs an axe and attempts to chop up every person he comes into contact with, he has a “behavioural problem”. Diagnosis and remedy are the only parts up for negotiation.

        If someone decides Tony Blair, George W Bush and others are filthy, dirty war criminals and is branded “insane” for taking action against global “gods” (small “g”), pumped full of drugs to shut him up, he is [likely] perfectly sane, He should not have been “diagnosed” or “treated” in the first place.

        Understand the difference?

  14. omanuel says:


    The sad fact is that Stalin won WWII during unreported CHAOS and FEAR of nuclear annihilation in Aug-Sept 1945 and formed the UN in Oct 1945 to take totalitarian control of society.

    Eisenhower and Kennedy delayed the global takeover, but the original plan was apparently restored by Kissinger and Nixon in 1971.

  16. country music says:

    At the basis of psychiatry you have mister Sigmund Fraud(!), a satanic coke addicted sex maniac to whom money was a ‘laughing gas’, who projected his personal disorders onto others.

    Psychiatry as a medical profession with hospitals and all, started big time in the satanic Soviet Union, just to put perfectly reasoning, critical people – those were a great danger to the satanic Soviet System – into mental hospitals where they were fed the most horryfying drugs to do the trick: get them totally mad or reduced to plants.

    • ozziethinker says:

      People [that do not like his work] have a habit of labelling Freud the “root of all evil”. In effect and in reality, he branched from Carl Jung (or, rather, Jung from him) because he opted for control and idealism, Jon Rappoport’s very eloquent post more than adequately outlines the “cause and affect” of idealistic psychiatry – a monster, partially, of Freud’s invention.

      The “diagnosis” must be right “because the ‘chart’ says so” (not). The drugs must be good because they’re “proven” (not).

      Result = poisoned, damaged healthy, sane poorly diagnosed individuals.

      Additional result = healthy, sane individuals targeted by the system for conspiratorial reasons

      I believe if Jung’s realism and faith had been allowed an unbridled passage, the face of psychiatry would be unrecognisable today. This is very sad patients and professionals alike.

  17. gmail says:

    modern psychology is just another pseudo-scientific tactic of judging mankind and then placing the emphasis of man’s problems on mankind itself, without considering environmental factors. truth is as the ancient greeks told us…war is the father of us all…dealing with this sobering fact is the first cause of all pathologies both international, national all the way down to the individual. hiding this truth is the greatest scam ever perpetrated on mankind. we are born on a worldwide warfare grid, which is the mother of all pathologies

  18. TheAlmightyPill says:

    Very nice post!

    It’s also worth pointing out that attempts to remove the “stigma of mental illness” are ultimately nefarious. This is not to imply that stigma is good or should be promoted. Rather, in the case of mental illness, the removing of so-called “stigma” is inseparable from the normalization and cultural codification of the fraudulent psychiatric edifices upon which the whole pantheon of mental illness is constructed. It takes for granted that “mental illness” is a valid concept. It is not “stigma” that needs removal, but the entire enterprise of unsubstantiated classification of “mental illness” that deliberately serves to divorce both sufferers and researchers from the true underlying physical causes (e.g. poor nutrition, disease, toxicity, etc).

    It is not unlike an attempt to remove the “stigma of being domestically abused,” which would imply that that state of “being domestically abused” is a given and that we can only ever hope to affect how it is perceived socially.

  19. chris allinson says:

    “Mad in America” by Robert Whitaker… is the book to read.

    If the author of this piece is unaware of it, I strongly suggest you read it. Essentially it says that the control groups in the drug trials are all going through psychiatric drug withdrawal.

    I am pretty sure that you could get Coca Cola licensed as an anti psychotic under the current regime. The authorities are well aware of it, and are on record saying so, but allow it to continue anyway. Given the number of people in the control group for the Olanzapine trials, who (predictably) killed themselves… this is not just an academic matter. They knew it would happen.

  20. From Québec says:

    “The bigger the lie, the greater the chance that it will be believed.”
    Adolf Hitler

    • omanuel says:

      Hitler was exactly right:

      1. Cores of stars make hydrogen by neutron emission and neutron decay. This waste product is discarded to interstellar space by the solar wind. In 1946, cores of stars were suddenly made of hydrogen and powered by H-fusion. Pages 153-154 of Sir Fred Hoyle’s 1994 autobiography show the changes were made without debate or discussion.

      2. Neutron-repulsion caused cores of uranium and plutonium atoms to explode and destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Immediately after WWII von Weizsacker’s false nuclear binding energy replaced Aston’s valid nuclear packing fraction to obscure neutron repulsion, the source of energy that also powers the Sun and the cosmos as the universe expands.

      1. Neutron repulsion causes cores sof heavy elements, stars and galaxies to explode or emit neutrons.

      • ozziethinker says:

        Not entirely correct.

        The important part of Hitler’s advice was to “tell a lie over and over”. That’s why the same basic message is regurgitated in new formats (designed to confuse the ignorant) as Jon has been kind to point out in numerous of his posts.

        As for radiation and the other bit, radiation is not yet fully understood (as it is an inter-dimensional problem). Atomic/nuclear weapons DO NOT explode atoms. They cause a breach in the electro-magnetic field which creates a minor wormhole (if that’s the correct terminology). Mantids are renowned for using atomic black holes (nuclei) for inter-stellar/dimensional travel. Don’t ask me how they do it, but behind the scenes, very small is also very big. Our reality is an illusion.

        Our science, quite frankly, is gibberish.

          All heavy atoms fission spontaneously above ~232 amu and fission becomes a dominant mode of decay above ~250 amu.

          Nuclear fission is breaking apart violently with the release of ~200 MeV of energy.

          Neutron repulsion is the source of energy that causes heavy nuclei to fission in atomic bombs and in nuclear reactors.

          Neutrons emitted from cores of nuclear reactors, stars and galaxies spontaneously decay to H in about 15 minutes.

          That is how the Sun and other stars generate and discard H to interstellar space.

            Neutrons and sub-particles are an illusion tuned to this un-reality frequency. In reality, your data is nonsense. That is why science will never understand micro or macro physics. They play mathematical games suitable for infants.

            Could you imagine what a nuclear event “looks like” in dimension four and the significant change in dimension five? Of course not, because you are “contained” by mumbo-jumbo science and its mathematical magick for suckers. A computer is a useless hunk of atoms, until it is switched on. This vibrational frequency gives but a glimpse of “what is”.

            At its very centre an atom is the gateway to reality and that’s all that needs to be said. Science can’t break reality! It can only contort what is and induce an angry reaction. The other worlders know far more dangerous and awe inspiring tricks than nuclear child’s play.

            Sorry, I have grown up. Further conversation is futile.

    From what I am reading in regard to “Common Core being implemented in the schools, the experiments used in psychiatry to “diagnose people with illness” are now being applied to school children.

    They are able to use the constant school testing mandate that has been used for over 15 years. This school testing is now being used to find the personality and grit of a child and how they react and feel about specific happenings. It is no longer about teaching and learning but about gathering data on each child, this data is to be sold for profit as well as to pigeon hole the child in terms of options they have in life such as a career choice, this is a total invasion of privacy and actually violates several parenting and family rights laws.

    This is out of control and families and the general public need to do some research on this and oppose it immediately. I have only touched on the actual depth of this madness, please do your research a good place to start is the and also watch this video “FCS Tustin – Sandra Stotsky” on you tube.

    Additionally while on the web site click on this link “Idaho Teacher Exposes the Data Collection – What is being collected under ‘Grit, Tenacity and Perseverance'” and please read and share.

    Jon please do an expose on this for us all.

    The west rejected God and Religion, thinking it would be ruled by pure reason. Didn’t exactly turn out that way, did it?

    To be fair, I believe we need to differentiate between “Psychology” and “Psychiatry”. Psychiatrists prescribe medications and ECT (shock), psychologists do not – they are not medical doctors. While some forms of psychology (Freud’s psychoanalysis) may be flakey, others, such as behavioral or cognitive behavioral seek to address behaviors or thoughts that are not helpful, or are limiting to individuals. Accordingly, people with phobias, anxiety, and many other issues can learn to face fears instead of avoiding them…no poison, no voltage and current, just learning good, functional habits.

    What most people don’t realize is that the DSMs are for insurance purposes. No reputable therapist would ever use them for diagnosis or treatment. Each individual is different and must be treated in that manner. One of the most important individuals in the movement away from the DSM system was Thomas Szasz in his book: “The Myth of Mental Illness.” In it he discounts the idea mental illnesses actually exist hence, classifying them is an exercise in futility.

    I can’t believe I missed reading this and I do have an opinion. You see, in my sweet, home, state, I was court ordered to a mental facility. They took my prescription antibiotic away and said they had to dispense it. I was given something else and in a couple days, was flying high. No one would answer my questions about it. My psychiatrist said, “You don’t belong here. You’re civil rights are being violated”. At discharge, my full bottle of antibiotics was returned and drugging me was denied – Who do I have the pleasure of thanking for this? How about you break the silence and expose this? What if it were you?
    Psychiatry is a corrupt, prideful, egotistical business. Some of you need to check out Freedom from Covert Harrassment and Surveilence: There is info of people being harrassed, on purpose, until they overreact from frustration. I’m sick to death of the biplar and schizophrenia labels being thrown around because someone speaks truth or questions.
    And men this one is for you – Children need you for healthy upbringing. Too many children have A DD or “A daddy drama” issue.
    Good job, Jon. Thank you.

    That’s not all there is to know about “Doctor” Frances.

    “In a commentary published in the University of Ottawa nursing journal Aporia, Paula Caplan writes about how Allen Frances and two other academic psychiatrists were paid by Johnson & Johnson in the late 1990s to write a practice guideline that identified Risperdal, the company’s new atypical antipsychotic, as a preferred treatment for schizophrenia.”
