A Different Perspective On The New ‘ISIS Video’ Of Brainwashed Kids Executing Prisoners

If you turned on your TV and watched any mainstream news network this week, odds are that you heard mention of ISIS or watched some sort of alleged footage from the infamous terrorist group. Though I believe it’s extremely important to stay up-to-date with what’s going on all over the world, it’s equally as important to ensure you’re actually being told the real story and not just being fed misinformation or propaganda.

When it comes to mainstream media (MSM), it can be difficult to decipher what’s real and what’s fake news, especially when it comes to anything regarding the war on terror. The sad truth is that you can almost always guarantee that you’re not being told the full story when MSM is discussing “terrorism” because MSM is controlled by the U.S. government, and so any dialogue that comes from the media has been heavily censored by the very organization that created and funded these terrorist groups. Yes, I’m referring to the U.S. government.

A more recent example of this is the chemical weapons attack that occurred earlier this year that Western MSM blamed entirely on President Assad. In response, Michel Chossudovsky, an award-winning author, an Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa, and the Founder and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), explained:

Trump’s decision to strike a Syrian airbase in retaliation for Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people confirms that the ‘False Flag’ Chemical Weapons attack scenario first formulated under Obama is still ‘on the table.’ Our analysis (including a large body of Global Research investigative reports) confirms unequivocally that Trump is lying, the Western media is lying and most of America’s allies are also lying. (source)

President Assad himself also claimed that the videos were “100% fabricated,” which is highly possible because the U.S. government, Western MSM, and affiliated organizations like the White Helmets have done this in the past. For example, the Pentagon paid a PR firm over $500 million to create fake terrorists videos.

In a Russia Today interview, Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI translator and the founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition, explained that ISIS was actually created by the U.S. in order to facilitate a brand change, shifting the attention from Al-Qaeda to ISIS. Al-Qaeda was starting to die down, so they needed to create a heightened state of fear about another terrorist group, which is part of the reason the U.S. funded ISIS so heavily. Edmonds also goes on to discuss Western media’s role in the creation of ISIS, as they further perpetuate the fear and fake stories surrounding these “terrorist attacks.”

You can read more about the origin of ISIS in our CE article here.

“Al Qaeda and the Al Qaeda affiliated organizations, including the Islamic State, are not independent organizations, they are sponsored, and they are sponsored by the United States and its allies. It is documented that prior to 2011, there was a process of recruitment of mujahideen to fight in Syria, and this was coordinated by NATO and the Turkish high command. This report is confirmed by Israeli news sources and unequivocally, we are dealing with a state-sponsorship of terrorism, the recruitment of mercenaries, the training and the financing of terrorism.”

– Dr. Michel Choissudovsky (source)

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard even proposed a bill recently in an effort to put an end to this government corruption, titled the “Stop Arming Terrorists Act,” which only received an alarming 13 supporters. Gabbard was quoted as saying that the “CIA has also been funneling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. This support has allowed al-Qaeda and their fellow terrorist organizations to establish strongholds throughout Syria, including in Aleppo.”

So, you have the U.S. government arming and funding terrorists, who then control MSM, and all of these parties have created fake content before. It’s important to understand the full scope of this, so we can critically think about what MSM is showing us. With that being said, let’s take a look at the latest video allegedly created by ISIS.

The New ISIS Video of Brainwashed Kids Shooting Prisoners

The following video has been circulating different MSM networks over the past few days:

The video was apparently created by ISIS and features two young boys executing two prisoners in Afghanistan. In the video, we never actually see the execution occur, and it’s unclear whether or not the video is fake or if it was in fact prepared by ISIS.

The Daily Mail reported that, “The children are so-called ‘cubs of the caliphate’ – the name given to youngsters who have been brainwashed with ISIS ideologies and trained to fight and kill for the terror group.”

On one hand, the video could have been created by the U.S. government, the elite, or other external parties with vested interests in perpetuating the “war on terror” propaganda campaign.

On the other hand, the video could be real, and ISIS may have actually brainwashed these children into thinking that killing is okay. It’s unclear what techniques ISIS uses to manipulate the minds of young children, but RT reported in 2015 that, “According to the UN, the group abducts and brainwashes children in record numbers to use as soldiers in their bloody quest for a caliphate throughout the Middle East.”

“They are abducting children and forcing them to join, they are brainwashing children and indoctrinating them to join their group. All the tools used to attract and recruit children are used by this group,” explained UN children’s representative Lelia Zerrougui.

So, what are some of the techniques used by organizations to brainwash and mind control children into committing murder and other violent or illegal acts against their will? Well, let’s look at how the U.S. government and the elite have done this in the past through the CIA-sanctioned program MK Ultra as well as Monarch Mind Control (MMC).

The CIA designed LSD with a Swiss manufacturer as part of the MK Ultra program in hopes that they could force people to take it and convince them to do unspeakable acts, all of which they’d forget the following morning, once the drugs wore off.

However, the overall scope of MK Ultra involved much more than drug testing, as a 1975 document addressed to the President stated: “The drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to study possible means for controlling human behaviour. Other studies explored the effects of radiation, electric-shock, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and harassment substances.”

By subjecting unwilling victims to extreme variations of sexual and physical abuse, the CIA and the elite could force these people to do anything. A 1954 document allegedly stated that two hypnotized women were forced into conflict, with an agent telling one of the women to “fly into a rage and shoot her,” which she allegedly did. Another hypnotist involved in the experiments came forward, admitting he hypnotized and forced “young girls to engage in sexual intercourse with him.”

MMC is said to be an underground, highly classified extension of MK Ultra, in which children and adults are mind-controlled to carry out various acts for the government and the elite, including murder, sexual occult rituals, and anything in between. You can read more about these programs in a recent article I wrote here.

If the CIA could figure out how to do this in the 1950s, then it’s clear that ISIS could figure out a way to do so now. As per the more recent video, it has not been confirmed whether or not it was fabricated, but it’s clear that the U.S. could have done so, since they would have motive.

The best we can do is keep an open mind to all possibilities and critically think about all of the information that’s put forth to us!

6 Lies Many People Tell Themselves & Their Consequences

We’re all liars.

Yes, even if you pride yourself on your honesty, I know with absolute confidence that there is a metaphorical lying bone within you, and it’s likely a lot bigger than you think.

You may not lie to others, but you most certainly lie to yourself. But don’t worry — we all do it, myself included, and that’s why I’ve put together a list of six of the most common lies we tend to tell ourselves and the consequences that come along with believing them.

Keep in mind that the purpose behind this article is not to make you feel dishonest, but to instead help you realize some of the things you may unnecessarily believe, giving you an opportunity to change it and hopefully improve your life.

Here are the six lies we love to tell ourselves, in both video and written form:

1. I Was Born That Way

When used to express pride for a particular character trait, talent, or way of being that you embody, the belief that you were born that way can be a healthy one to have. But the usage that I’m referring to is the refusal to be open to a presented change, or the justification of a particular behaviour, simply because this is how you believe that you have always been.

Even if you have maintained certain beliefs for an extended period of time, you’re also changing, learning, and growing every single day, so stop holding so firmly onto what you think represents you. I’m not suggesting you make a complete 180 on your way of being; I am simply encouraging you to remain open-minded to change.

Consequences: Close-mindedness, excessive stubbornness, and the risk of living your life in a particularly small comfort zone.

2. It’s a Dog-Eat-Dog World

While we may not use this particular lingo, what it represents is the belief that everyone is inherently selfish and as a result is always out to get you. In the business world in particular, there may be a plethora of examples to support this belief, but there are just as many, if not more, to suggest the opposite.

I’m not suggesting that you instead openly trust everyone and act recklessly, but rather that you don’t allow this belief to make you close yourself off to others and feel like you need to do everything on your own. There are many people in this world who not only love you, but would also love to see you and your ideas thrive. Approach decisions from a balanced perspective rather than one steeped in the belief that everyone is trying to screw you over.

Consequences: Untrusting, loneliness, and rudeness as a way of guarding yourself against perceived enemies.

3. You Can’t Change the World

Before you overreact, I’m not suggesting that we can all change the world’s way of being on a particular matter single-handedly. But I am referring to the excessive number of times that so many us shut down creative ideas or don’t pursue and/or partake in projects to help the world simply because we feel powerless.

Yes, we are each a tiny fish in a big sea, but so were some of the most influential figures in history. Don’t worry — I’m not expecting you to immediately get up on your soapbox and start screaming in support of your favourite cause, but I am expecting you to realize that you always have the power to change your perspective toward the world, which in essence does change the world, since your perspective is the only one you know.

Consequences: Laziness, disempowerment, and the murder of countless wonderful ideas.

4. I’ll Start Tomorrow/Next Week/Next Month

This one certainly requires the least explanation and is also the one that we are all likely guilty of believing the most. Whether it be a dietary change, a lifestyle overhaul, or even just a simple task that has helped to populate our daily to-do list for months, we love putting things off for another day.

While it’s unrealistic to expect ourselves to accomplish everything we’d like to do in a single calendar day, the problem arises when we keep putting certain things off for the perpetual tomorrow. You’ll never be younger or more capable of doing whatever it is that you keep putting off than you are today, so start reinstating the belief that you should take action now!

Consequences: Unhealthy habits maintained and a lack of drive.

5. I’m Going to Look Stupid If __________

If everything we did involved nobody else and would never be seen by anyone, we’d all be amazing at acting on our intuition and being ourselves. But instead, thanks in large part to the internet, things have gone in the opposite direction and our lives have never been more on display.

The result is that we let self-consciousness filter our decision-making and hold us back from being ourselves out of a fear of being ridiculed. If doing something is truly important to you, finding the courage to do it may seem difficult, but it’s far easier than living the rest of your life sheltered in fear of judgement.

Consequences: Overthought, giving your power to others, and not being your true self.

6. It’s Too Late

If only you had realized this earlier.

You are past your prime.

There is no point now.

The next generation will have to take care of it.

No matter how you word it or how old you are, we all seemingly love to put certain things in our mental waste basket based on the simple belief that our time to do it has already passed. While this may be the case with certain age-restricted accomplishments, most of what we cast aside can still be done at the ripe old age of whatever you currently are.

The world is filled with example of late bloomers who have accomplished so much in this world, so stop writing yourself off and go after your dreams!

Consequences: Pessimism and regret.

Victims Sue Federal Government Over “Sweet Deal” Given To Elite Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein

If you’re unfamiliar with the prevalence of pedophilia, sexual abuse, and occult rituals within the elite and high-level government, then Jeffrey Epstein’s case is a good place for you to start your research. The billionaire Wall Street financier gained a lot of attention in 2005 amongst the financial elite, but it wasn’t until 2009 that he entered into the spotlight for a very different reason — as a registered sex offender.

Epstein was accused of recruiting and forcing dozens of children into an underground network of sex slaves, who served many of the elite members of society, including former American President Bill Clinton. Epstein owned a private jet, referred to as the “Lolita Express” by mainstream media (MSM), which was used to transport Epstein and his elitist friends to Little St. James, Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands — dubbed “Orgy Island” by the tabloids.

Many of Epstein’s victims identified his private island as the location for some of the darkest crimes Epstein and his friends committed. Epstein pleaded guilty to charges of soliciting prostitution from girls as young as fourteen, yet his only punishment was serving just over a year in jail time and becoming a registered high-risk sex offender. Details regarding what many are calling his “sweet deal” were just released, provoking two victims to sue the federal government.

High-Level Pedophilia and Trafficking on Epstein’s Lolita Express

Epstein apparently had an entire team of people working for him to seek out girls as young as 12 to be trafficked onto “Orgy Island,” where they would provide illegal sexual services to his elite friends. Police investigators stated that there was a “clear indication that Epstein’s staff was frequently working to schedule multiple young girls between the ages of 12 and 16 years old literally every day, often two or three times per day.”

Prominent names who boarded the Lolita Express include former President Bill Clinton, Naomi Campbell, Kevin Spacey, Prince Andrew, Larry Summers, and other political figures, all of whom are listed on the flight logs. Even the current U.S. President, Donald Trump, has ties to Epstein, and was in fact accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at multiple different elite sex parties with Epstein. You can see the full logs here.

“Bill Clinton . . . associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” explained Conchita Sarnoff, an investigative journalist who, despite being bribed to stay silent, risked her life to expose the brutal reality of human trafficking. Sarnoff also wrote a book on the Epstein case called TrafficKing. “Why would a former president associate with a man like that?” Sarnoff asked.

Perhaps that’s because Clinton was recorded on the Lolita Express’ flight logs an astonishing 26 times. Former U.S. State Department official Steve Pieczenik explained that the Clintons and many more “have been a major part and participant of what’s called the Lolita Express, which is a plane owned by Mr. Jeff Epstein, a wealthy multi-millionaire who flies down to the Bahamas and allows Bill and Hillary Clinton to engage in sex with minors — that is called Pedophilia” (source).

If you’re trying to excuse any of the people who frequently visited Epstein’s jet, keep in mind that many of the criminal acts occurred on the airplane itself. Fox News explained the reason behind naming Epstein’s jet the Lolita Express: “The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.” Plus, some of the logs detailed that he brought his team of secret service agents with him, and other flights indicated he did not.

One of the victims, Virginia Roberts, who was allegedly trafficked by Epstein at age 15, claimed that she saw Clinton at Epstein’s private escape in 2002, though the flight logs don’t detail this.

It wasn’t just the sexual violations that occurred on the island that Epstein was penalized for; court documents in the original case proved that Epstein routinely paid girls as young as 14 between $200 to $1,000 for “sexually explicit massages” in his homes all over America.

Fox News reported:

One victim, in sworn deposition testimony, said Epstein began sexually assaulting her when she was 13 years old and molested her on more than 50 occasions over the next three years. The girls testified they were lured to Epstein’s home after being promised hundreds of dollars to be his model or masseuse, but when they arrived, he ordered them to take off their clothes and massage his naked body while he masturbated and used sex toys on them.

To learn more about Epstein’s history as a pedophile and human trafficker, as well as high-level government, celebrity, and elite involvement with the Lolita Express, check out the following RT video:

The Lawsuit Against the Government for Epstein’s “Sweet Deal”

To be clear, Epstein only spent 13 months in jail, despite being sentenced to 18. In addition, he was actually allowed to leave the premises during the day to go to work at his office. So, he really only slept in a jail cell for the most part. After completing his lightened sentence in jail, he had to register as a sex offender and was put on probation for a year.

Despite there being approximately 30 known victims of Epstein’s Lolita Express, he only plead guilty to one charge of soliciting an under-age prostitute. Epstein was known to buy the women and girls’ silence, which perhaps is why so many of his victims refused to take the stand.

However, two of the alleged victims are claiming that the federal government violated the federal Crime Victims Rights Act (CVRA), as they argued that they were never notified of the plea deal. Many people are now asking whether or not the deal accurately reflected the punishment Epstein deserved for his crimes, and so the prosecutors filed a detailed reason for the agreement.

The two victims’ main argument surrounds a 2008 letter that apparently stated that the FBI had reopened their investigation against Epstein, thus the victims assumed he would be charged with federal crimes, leading to a longer sentence. To their surprise, Epstein was awarded with what the public are calling a “sweetheart deal,” and instead of alerting the victims, they maintain that they had no idea, which would be a violation of the CVRA.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office stated that they weren’t bribed by Epstein, but rather were forced to offer this “sweet deal” because not enough women would come forward. Perhaps the underlying issue here is that the judiciary system does not offer a safe place for rape and trafficking victims to come forward, especially when it involves the government and the elite.

Attorneys Brad Edwards and Paul Cassell, who represented two of the victims, referred to Epstein’s agreement as “one of the most extraordinarily lenient plea deal arrangements in modern history.”

It certainly seems as though Epstein was let off easy in comparison to other pedophiles, which likely has something to do with his social status and involvement with high-level corruption.

Final Thoughts

The fact of the matter is that high-level political and elite involvement with pedophilia and sex slaves is nothing new. If you know anything about the government programs MK Ultra or Monarch Mind Control, it’s easy to imagine how not only unwilling adults, but children can be manipulated and brainwashed into thinking that pedophilia and sex trafficking are okay. Either that or they’re too terrified to come forward.

This isn’t the first time people were concerned over sexual abuse and pedophilia by government officials and the elite. Ted Gunderson, former FBI special agent and head of their L.A. office, worked to uncover years’ worth of information on high-level pedophilia, sexual abuse, and satanic rituals performed by the elite. You can read more about that in our CE article here.

Former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney also knew about the government’s relationship to human trafficking, and she actually addressed it in 2005. She grilled Donald Rumsfeld on DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children (source).

We tend to dehumanize pedophiles, child molesters, rapists, and abusers, demanding punishment for their crimes and responding to their actions with hate and anger. However, if we fail to recognize the humanity in them, how will we ever learn why these violent acts occurred in the first place? We need to stop shunning these acts into the dark and shed light on them, so we can finally fix this broken system.

Investigation Reveals 70,000 Dogs in Bali Murdered & Served To Tourists Every Year

Dogs are commonly referred to as “man’s best friend,” with 62% of U.S. households having a pet. They’re as smart as a two-year-old child, dream the same way as humans, have a sixth sense, and, according to science, release oxytocin when interacting with their humans, who also release the love hormone, suggesting that they love their owners just as much as their owners love them.

But not everyone appreciates the companionship of a dog. In fact, every year, 70,000 dogs are slaughtered in Bali, Indonesia. These statistics were revealed through an investigation spearheaded by Animals Australia (AA). The dogs are brutally killed, according to the findings — strangled, bludgeoned, or poisoned — before being fed to tourists who believe they’re eating chicken meat. According to AA, about seven times more dogs are killed in Bali on an annual basis than in the Yulin Dog-Eating Festival in China.

To uncover the reality of Bali’s inconceivable dog trade, an AA undercover investigator spent four months pretending to be a documentary maker. During this time, the man, referred to as Luke, was able to pinpoint the leaders of the industry, who eventually invited him to follow along as they stole, hunted, poisoned, and killed dogs.

“Tourists will walk down a street, they’ll see a street store selling satay but what they are not realizing is the letters RW on the store mean it is dog meat being served,” said AA campaign director Lyn White.

According to AA, the dogs are dumped in bamboo crates or plastic rice sacks once captured. They are then put through an immensely terrifying waiting game. Their mouths taped shut and legs tied together, they wait for hours or days without food or water, until, one by one, they are slaughtered in front of each other.

With business booming, greed is clearly a driving force that allows such horrific people to turn off morality for the sake of a full pocket.

Street vendors and restaurants are filled with the meat from these dogs, too. In fact, according to Bali Animal Welfare Association, an organization working to rescue the animals from dog traders, 70 restaurants have been found to be serving dog meat.

While it’s not illegal to eat dog meat in Bali, it is illegal to kill animals cruelly, as well as to consume meat with poison.

One one occasion, Luke witnessed hunters catching dogs by laying out fish meat laced with cyanide. Luke was overcome with guilt, disgust, and sadness, switching off his camera as he watched a puppy slowly and painfully die. “I sat stroking him as he died and found myself apologizing for the cruelty of my fellow man,” he said.

The Bali Animal Welfare Association are working hard to try and cut down on the illegal mistreatment of dogs. While they have rescued 150 dogs so far, the fact that an estimated 70,000 are slaughtered annually makes for a grim reality.

“This is not about laying blame. This is about unnecessary cruelty that puts the human health population at risk and is causing shocking animal cruelty, it also is breaching Bali laws. We are certainly also willing to partner with the Bali government to bring about positive solution here,” said White.
AA is open to ending the dog meat trade by partnering with the Bali government. To sign the petition for the governor of Bali, click here.

A New Explanation For Dark Matter Could Be The Best One Yet

The term just sounds ominous. And though it makes up an estimated 85% of the total mass of the Universe, it has remained a mystery to physicists for 80 years. It outweighs ordinary matter, which consists of all the atoms that make up stars, galaxies, and clouds in the cosmos, by a factor of four to one. It’s become apparent that it exists solely because of its powerful gravity, with galaxies relying on it to encase them as they spin incredibly fast, keeping them together.

But despite decades of trying, nobody has been able to understand it, or its origins, more than that. Scientists theorize it produced in massive quantities in the immediate aftermath of the Big Bang, but a new hypothesis could finally give dark matter an identity.

According to two physicists, dark matter has been changing forms this whole time, beginning from particles in the Universe’s biggest structures, and shifting to a superfluid state at smaller levels.

While we can’t detect dark matter, we are able to see the way it affects everything around us, like the way galaxies rotate and light bends as it travels through the Universe. This new hypothesis, presented by University of Pennsylvania physicist Justin Khoury and Lasha Berezhiani, now at Princeton University, suggests that the reason we’ve had such a hard time understanding dark matter is because it doesn’t stay the same.

“Most of the mass [in the Universe], which is dark matter, is segregated from where most of the ordinary matter lies,” explained Khoury. “On a cosmic web scale, this does well in fitting with the observations. On a galaxy cluster scale, it also does pretty well. However, when on the scale of galaxies, it does not fit.”

The cold dark matter particles account for the massive galaxy clusters, but the new hypothesis suggests that, when looking at dark matter on a singular galactic scale, it takes on a superfluid state — a form of cold, densely packed matter with no friction or viscosity.

“Recently, more physicists have warmed to the possibility of superfluid phases forming naturally in the extreme conditions of space,” Jennifer Ouellette explained for Quanta Magazine. “Superfluids may exist inside neutron stars, and some researchers have speculated that space-time itself may be a superfluid. So why shouldn’t dark matter have a superfluid phase, too?”

The shifting states are thought to work like this: The ‘halos’ of dark matter encasing individual galaxies form the conditions needed to produce a superfluid, which serves as a gravitational pull on the galaxy to keep it densely packed. The coldness of space ensures the temperature remains low. On a larger scale, this gravitational pull is too weak to form a superfluid.

The hope is that such knowledge of dark matter’s shifting state could help physicists to better understand the elusive behaviours of individual galaxies that gravity by itself cannot uncover.

According to Ouellette, disturbing an electric field creates radio waves; a gravitational field gravitational waves; and disturbing a superfluid creates phonons, or sound waves.

“It’s nice because you have an additional force on top of gravity, but it really is intrinsically linked to dark matter,” Khoury said. “It’s a property of the dark matter medium that gives rise to this force.”

While the hypothesis has yet to be peer-reviewed, it is still intriguing to think that the mystery of dark matter could soon be uncovered.

Parents, Something is Terribly Wrong With Many YouTube Videos for Children

I think most of us understand, at least on some level, that technology can harm our health and well-being, and that constant exposure to it, especially for children, is not a good thing. Yet, for a variety of reasons, parents still use technology to babysit their children.

But the physical effects are mounting, and in 2016 we wrote an article that explores the harmful effects of WiFi, cell phones, iPads, and more specifically in relation to children: “In 2011 the World Health Organization (WHO) admitted that cell phone radiation may cause cancer. The statement was based off of a cumulative decision made by a team of 31 scientists, from 14 different countries, after reviewing evidence that suggested this to be the case.”

But what about the psychological effects?

I wrote an article about why you should let your child be bored and I highlight a specific study conducted by Dr. Teresa Belton. She studied the effects that television has on the imagination of children aged 10-12, ultimately concluding that television negatively impacts their development:

The ubiquity and ease of access to television and videos perhaps robs today’s children of the need to pursue their own thoughts and devise their own occupations, distracting them from inner processes and constantly demanding responses to external agendas, and suggests that this may have implications for the development of imaginative capacity.

This study was conducted in 1990, before the internet blew up to be what it is today. Would it then be safe to assume that the effects could be similar? Maybe even worse?

When a child doesn’t exercise their ability to fill their mind with wondrous imaginings, they are susceptible to the internet filling it for them.

Film and television provoke our emotions, sometimes in fantastic ways. They can promote love and connection with our fellow human beings, and in some cases, can even provide a positive perspective on the world. The flip side is that the same can be said for negative, low-vibe emotions, thanks to things like fear-mongering news, or ads that take advantage of our insecurities. Don’t believe that we aren’t highly affected by these visuals? If we weren’t, companies would not pay up to 5 million dollars to run a 30 second advertisement during the Super Bowl, or 2.1 million dollars for the same amount of time during the Oscars.

For anyone with children, you know that they are like sponges, so allow yourself for a moment to comprehend the impact that the internet has on a child’s behaviour, social understanding, and perspective.

BBC Trending exposed how some YouTube channels have ripped off beloved characters like Peppa Pig and Thomas the Tank Engine, essentially tricking children into watching disturbing content.

Vigilant Citizen recently compiled a number of images from YouTube videos that stimulate fear and sexual emotions in children.

These videos would most likely leave a child mildly traumatized and extremely uncomfortable, as they exploit their deepest fears, featuring “blood, syringes, cutting skin, tarantulas, evil clowns attacking them, etc.” (There will be no visual link for the screenshots below so as to not generate more hits to these channels, which already generate millions of views.)

As Vigilant puts it, “A great number of videos revolve around the theme of cutting open the stomach and extracting all kinds of weird and horrible things. In this video, a scalpel cuts open this bear’s stomach and a big ugly worm pops out.” “In this video, a ‘nurse’ cuts open a small girl’s stomach and takes out all kinds of scary objects such as a huge kitchen knife.”
“Here, someone dressed as the Joker threatens to throw a baby down the toilet. A great way to start potty training.”“A giant tarantula crawling on a girl sleeping with a pacifier.” “In this video, creepy fake babies end up covered with spiders and cockroaches.” Why does this exist?

“In this video, a bear poops all over his entire family. He then ends up stuck in the washing machine as family members drop their dirty clothes inside of it. All the while, a horrible rendition of the ‘Daddy Finger’ song plays in the background. So many videos feature that song – as if something about it captures children’s attention.”

The next few shots are even more disturbing, as they reenact sexual positions that also involve well-known characters.

“Spiderman grabs Elsa’s breasts for a very long time. Hulk and a bunch of other dudes are watching in the background.”This video is insinuating exactly what you think.

“This entire video features Elsa and Spiderman in all kinds of … positions.”

In addition to these videos that children can easily stumble upon, they are directed even further thanks to these recommended videos. Take a look at the viewer count.

I’ve also often questioned the obsession children have with Slime videos. I once waited for my mechanic for 20 minutes and his three children were engrossed in slime videos, one after another, until their mother came to pick them up.

How to Protect Your Kids

  • Download the YouTube Kids app. This app filters out most inappropriate videos, but not all, so it’s important to still be watchful.
  • Create your own YouTube account for your family. When asked your age, mark under 18, otherwise you’ll have access to all the videos, including the inappropriate ones.
  • Enable Restricted Mode. Be sure to turn it on for each browser you use. If your browser supports multiple profiles, you must enable it for each profile. If you want Restricted Mode to stay enabled for anyone using this browser, you can lock it in place.
  • Monitor your child’s use. Set designated times for your child to use their phone or iPad and when it’s not in use, put it in a place only you know about. Cris Logan of Enough is Enough also recommends staying close while they peruse: “We know that 79% of a child’s access to inappropriate content occurs right through the home. If a parent is doing their job with regard to parental control and filters, the likelihood of their child accidentally coming across pornographic material will be significantly reduced.”
  • Covenant Eyes also reported that “Malicious users have been known to post blatantly pornographic video content on YouTube, pairing it with video clips of children’s programming. Children click on these videos and watch several minutes of what appears to be a benign program, only to have the video content suddenly switch to adults having sexual intercourse.”

What We Can Learn From NBC’s Megyn Kelly’s ‘Hit Piece’ On Alex Jones

Over the past week, NBC’s Megyn Kelly has taken a lot of heat over her controversial interview with Alex Jones. You may be familiar with Alex Jones’ work at Info Wars, as he’s gained an extensive following after years of work in alternative news and “conspiracy theories.” To be clear, I genuinely believe that Alex Jones has helped the movement, and I recognize the key role he played in my own life and my personal “waking up” process.

However, he is also notorious for reacting and communicating in extreme ways. Though this is clearly indicative of the passion he has for his work, which is very inspiring at times, this type of reaction did not necessarily serve him in his interview with Megyn Kelly (though I’m not sure if you could even call it an interview, as it was clearly a hit piece against Jones as well as a form of political propaganda). We get into more details about this specifically in our latest docu-series episode at the end of this article.

If you haven’t watched the interview, you can check it out here:

When I first watched the interview, I remember thinking, this cannot be the full story. This was another clear example of mainstream media (MSM) not providing the full picture, and simply publishing a “political fluff” piece rather than real, honest news. To be frank, I wasn’t sure if it was even deserving of an article at first, because it lacked substance and was clearly over-edited.

It seemed like Jones’ responses to Megyn in the interview weren’t actually his responses, but rather misplaced sentences meant to paint Jones in an unflattering light and simply put words in his mouth. However, did Alex really expect MSM to accurately portray who he is? Most of what MSM spews is altered, falsified, or dramatized, so it’s unsurprising that his interview was no different from the regular narrative we see on MSM news networks.

So, What Lessons Can We Take From Jones’ Interview?

In my opinion, one of the things we can learn from this interview is the importance of neutrality. In this particular interview, you have two very different people who represent very different things reflecting a similar state of consciousness. Both parties use extreme emotions and statements, both promote fear and anger, and neither of them are truly independent or neutral.

Megyn Kelly, who clearly had her own agenda, is not doing her journalistic duty by putting out a piece like this. Instead of choosing more relevant stories, she only focused on the Sandy Hook shootings. Not that this particular event doesn’t deserve media attention, but this occurred in 2012, and ultimately Jones has a lot more information out there that deserves to be discussed.

Why weren’t topics like the elite, occult rituals, Hillary Clinton’s corruption, or Jones’ work at the Bohemian Grove brought up? These are all stories that are far more shocking and controversial than a shooting that occurred five years ago, and that’s only four of many topics that Jones reports on that deserve to be discussed in the mainstream

Instead, Kelly only focused on one story, and involved one parent’s tragic loss. In addition, for viewers that weren’t well versed on Sandy Hook and the controversy surrounding it, they probably had no idea what was going on because she didn’t provide enough background information on the subject. Instead, she created an “I’m right, you’re wrong” dialogue with Jones, which serves absolutely no one. The entire interview lacked substance and evidence, with both offering mere conjecture and attacks on one another’s character.

Kelly also focused significantly on Jones’ ties to President Donald Trump, making it seem like this was a political propaganda piece. Kelly painted Jones in a negative light, just like MSM paints Trump in a negative light. Instead of allowing Jones to explain these relations, she only allowed him to get a few words in. Plus, by painting an inaccurate picture of Jones and then tying him to Trump, she has now associated Trump with “fake news,” which is ironic given that NBC is the real pusher of “fake news” here.

On the other hand, you have Alex Jones, who responded to the piece by referring to Megyn Kelly as a modern day “Medusa.” Don’t get me wrong, Jones clearly has reason to believe that Kelly had bad intentions, since she lied to him about the context of the interview, which he was able to prove by recording their phone calls.

However, his response was full of anger, which does not help his credibility or public image. One of the most important aspects of journalism, and communication in general, is responding instead of reacting. Kevin Trudeau put it beautifully when he compared the difference between responding and reacting in regards to modern medicine: When we respond to medication, our bodies are working with it, but when we react to something, this means we’re experiencing some sort of negative effects.

The same can be said in any other scenario. When we respond to something or someone, we are taking a neutral stance and acting as the observer, whereas when we react, we are most often responding emotionally and with a particular viewpoint. It’s crucial when it comes to independent reporting and even everyday life that we respond instead of react.

When we’re mad, we often lose track of our thoughts, overcrowd our minds, and say things we don’t mean. Our passions can be mistaken for biases, and we can lose credibility for it. I’m not suggesting that you don’t develop passions or express them, but rather that you simply try your best to remain neutral and not let your passions turn into anger! At the end of the day, this will only upset you. 

Final Thoughts

Either way, this interview represents an opportunity for both Megyn Kelly and Alex Jones to grow and learn from their actions. Kelly has had an extensive career in MSM, and perhaps the negative backlash she’s receiving from this interview will act as a catalyst for her own change and encourage her to focus more on seeking the truth than raising her ratings and succumbing to the elite’s agenda.

This interview also shows us that the rise of conscious media is incredibly important. The ways of the past where we bash one side or the other with extreme emotion or drama does not serve to bring out the truth and only puts more of this drama into the public. Whereas if we can look at information from a neutral place, without emotion or bias to persuade viewers, we can transcend a form of media that is not serving us to advance consciously.

As for Alex Jones, perhaps this interview will show him that he could benefit from remaining more neutral and not letting his anger get the best of him. After all, he probably wouldn’t have attracted this type of interview into his life if he didn’t need to learn something from it. Though this extreme reactions have clearly served him in the past, and many others, as he has inspired so many of us to “wake up,” alternative media is currently under attack with all of these allegations of “fake news,” and expressing anger probably won’t help progress the movement any further.

We already see so much fear and anger expressed in MSM, as they manufacture so many stories about false villains; let’s keep this type of mindset out of independent journalism!

CIA Document Shows The Agency Recruited Legendary American Physicist, John Wheeler, To Study UFOs

Although UFOs are no longer the fringe topic they once were, the official campaign of secrecy and ridicule against their becoming public knowledge, as described by former CIA director Roscoe Hillenkoetter, is still in effect. Recent episodes of Bill Nye’s new show, for example, openly ridiculing UFOs on national television, make this clear. The close relationship the CIA holds with the media is clearly at play here.

A wise person once said that “condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance,” and that is no less true when it comes to UFOs, a field so full of witness testimony and hard evidence that it’s a wonder mainstream media can still avoid covering it.

How anybody can still deny the existence of UFOs when the world’s brightest minds have been actively studying the phenomenon and the evidence available for decades is a mystery. Indeed, intelligence agencies like the CIA are recruiting the world’s top scientists to do so.

For example, a declassified secret document discovered in the CIA’s own electronic reading room titled a “Telephone Conversation With Dr. John A. Wheeler” shows how the agency was trying to recruit him to look into a “CIA attack on the flying saucer problem.”

The CIA has a long history of putting resources toward studying this phenomenon, as well as putting forth efforts to investigate what other countries know about it as well. For example, another unclassified document outlines:

Scientists of the PRC and the Soviet Far East have begun joint study of UFO’s. The first meeting of ufologists of the two countries has ended in the small maritime townlet of Dalnegorsk. The Soviet and Chinese specialists on anomalous phenomena have mapped out a program for investigating incidents that are already known and have also arranged to directly exchange video and photographic materials on new similar phenomena. Dalnegorsk has not been chosen by chance as the place for such acquaintance. In the last few years the number of cases of visual observation of UFO’s has noticeably increased there. In just the last four years alone no less than 10 UFO’s have been recorded. Specialists link their heightened interest in places here with the variety and wealth of useful minerals in Maritime Kray. Similar, incidents have also occurred in mountainous regions in China whose climatic conditions and natural landscape resemble our own. (source)

As for the Wheeler document, it shows how the agency really wanted him to work with the CIA on this subject, and that he regretted that he could not because of prior work comittments. It also mentions that “he would be pleased at any time to discuss the matter briefly.”  It also states how Wheeler mentioned “two foreign nationals who were currently outstanding in related fields.”

The document goes on to mention a few other names, some of which are redacted, and others not, like former Director of Research at Cambridge, Massachusetts USAF research center, Dr. O’Day.

The document pertains to a “scientific attack” on the UFO problem.

Another document regarding the call with Wheeler states that he might actually have some time available to get involved.

The document doesn’t offer much information, but its existence itself proves that as far back as 1953 the CIA was looking into UFOs and recruiting the world’s top minds to study them.

“This thing has gotten so highly-classified . . . it is just impossible to get anything on it. I have no idea who controls the flow of need-to-know because, frankly, I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of my business that I’ve never tried to make it to be my business since. I have been interested in this subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air Force has on the subject is going to remain highly classified.”

– Senator Barry GoldwaterChairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee (source)

The topic of UFOs lie within this world of classification that Senator Goldwater mentions above.  Here is another video of him speaking on it.

The United States has had a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. Though the National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

We are talking about Special Access Programs (SAP). From these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”

You can read more about the black budget here.

Just imagine the scientists working in the world of intelligence today, those who are examining these craft, and those who work inside, the ones dealing with the science that goes on in the black budget world.  These people have no lives.

Take Dr. Norman Bergrun, for example. He’s worked for Ames Research Laboratory, NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, now known as Lockheed Martin. He then went on to found Bergrun Engineering and Research.

You can view some of his publications for NASA, where he worked for more than a decade, here.

In this interview, he outlines what it’s like in that world, and how these scientists aren’t really allowed to have much of a life, as they are constantly kept behind closed doors.

The Sturrock Panel

Independent scientists have also investigated UFOs. Below is a clip from the Thrive documentary that has now amassed over 100 million views. I apologize if you’ve seen it before, as I’ve posted it multiple times.

Another great example comes from what’s know as the Sturrock Panel. In the 1990s Peter Andrew Sturrock, a British scientist and Emeritus Professor of Applied Physics at Stanford University, met with other prominent scientists from around the world to examine the physical evidence that is commonly associated with the UFO phenomenon. One example used by Sturrock in his analysis is a photo taken by two Royal Canadian Air Force pilots on August 27th, 1956, in McCleod, Alberta, Canada. (“Physical Evidence Related To UFO Reports” – The Sturrock Panel Report – Electromagnetic Effects) (source) (source)

“If it does indeed turn out that there is relevant physical evidence, if this evidence is carefully collected and analyzed, and if this analysis leads to the identification of several facts concerning the UFO phenomenon, then will be the time for scientists to step back and ask, What are these facts trying to tell us? If those facts are strong enough to lead to a firm conclusion, then will be the time to confront the more bizarre questions. If, for instance, it turns out that all physical evidence is consistent with a mundane interpretation of the causes of UFO reports, there will be little reason to continue to speculate about the role of extraterrestrial beings. If, on the other hand, the analysis of physical evidence turns up very strong evidence that objects related with UFO reports were manufactured outside the solar system, then one must obviously consider very seriously that the phenomenon involves not only extraterrestrial vehicles but probably also extraterrestrial beings.”

–  From the Sturrock Panel (source)

The 2011 Global Competitiveness Forum, at which a number of prominent scientists attended, featured a lecture by Jacques Vallee, notable for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA, and for his work at SRI International on the network information centre for ARPANET, on the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon. There, he also discusses the physical evidence we currently have.

The Science Behind Essential Oils & Digestive Health

Optimizing digestive health is often associated with eating properly. And while that’s certainly a good place to start, there are other important parts of maintaining a healthy gut.

The gastrointestinal system, also referred to as the gastrointestinal tract, digestive system, digestive tract, or gut, is made up of a group of organs that includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, small intestine, colon, and rectum. In recent years, much emphasis has been put on the importance of gut health, with experts now revealing the gastrointestinal system is more than the body’s primary site of taking in and absorbing nutrients, but is also a communication center to and from the brain. It also functions as one of the body’s primary centers for fighting diseases, and has even been referred to as “the second brain.”

To ensure that our gut stays healthy, we have to take care of our “rest and digest” parasympathetic state of the nervous system. You know that fight or flight feeling you get when things go awry? When you’re stressed out or anxious? Guilty? Feel in danger? This shuts down all functions necessary for survival, including the digestive system.

When this shutdown occurs, healing nutrients and proper energy cannot make their way through the digestive tract. This explains why people test low for nutrients such as Vitamin D, Vitamin B, Zinc, or Iron, despite frequent supplementation.

While it’s important to try to get to the root of what is harming your digestive system, be it poor food choices or high stress levels, it’s also essential to use other ways to optimize digestive function in the meantime, like your sense of smell, called the olfactory system, and the skin.

Since your sense of smell is the most primal sense, and can significantly impact your thoughts, emotions, moods, memories, and behaviours, it makes sense that smelling food would trigger the brain to activate the vagus nerve to ignite all parasympathetic responses, including the digestive cascade. Breathing, sitting in an upright position at the table, and eating slowly and consciously are all ways to trigger the parasympathetic state during meals, but when emotional issues get in the way, it can be hard to fully relax.

Essential oils can be helpful as well, as they work to stimulate the parasympathetic “rest-and-digest” state by reaching the inner-brain through nasal pathways to stimulate the nerve endings in the skin, which connect to the parasympathetic nervous system. In fact, in one study, researchers found that components of lavender oil, when applied topically, were at measurable amounts in the blood within 20 minutes, and stayed in the blood system for up to 90 minutes.

To receive this benefit for digestion, you can apply essential oils behind the earlobe, on the mastoid bone. This is the most accessible area to the surface of the skin.

Aromatherapy can be incredibly beneficial to your overall health. And while it’s not considered a replacement for healthy lifestyle choices, such as good nutrition and exercise, it is great for enhancement, and for ensuring you have a backdoor to access when your digestive system isn’t working properly due to the high levels of stress and anxiety that so commonly plague people today.

Edward Snowden: “Knowledge Has To Originate From Somewhere, And That Can’t Be A Classroom.”

In September 2015, Neil deGrasse Tyson interviewed Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower who revealed the mass spying program(s) used across the globe by multiple intelligence agencies, private governments, and more. His revelations had broad and immediate consequences for both the elite they exposed and the now-informed public, who, prior to the leaks, considered government surveillance a conspiracy theory. Leaks continue to expose government surveillance and the tools/technology they use via Snowden and other whistleblowers, document platforms like Wikileaks, and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). As a result, distrust in our governments is at an-all time high, and on a global scale.

All of these leaks have brought the existence of Special Access Programs (SAPs) and Unacknowledged SAPs into the public consciousness. These are programs run by what’s become known as “The Deep State,” or a government within the government, which has also been discussed by multiple political insiders and academics,.

Here is one out of many examples we’ve used many times:

Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people.

From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.

To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. (source)

Modern Day Education

In the interview, Snowden offers his views on education, which align closely with our own here at CE:

It’s a question of who teaches the untaught? Knowledge has to arise from somewhere. There has to be a fountainhead from which it flows. That can’t be a classroom because the teachers themselves had to learn it from somewhere. Original research, the scientific method, the pursuit of the unknown, and the questioning of accepted conventional wisdom and probing at the unknowns. The fact that the most interesting thing for someone who’s interested in how knowledge is created are the problems that haven’t been solved. It’s not what do we know. It’s what we don’t know.

The interview is lengthy and covers a range of topics, but my focus here is education.

It’s something I’ve always wondered: Who does teach the untaught? When one goes to teacher’s college, or medical school, or to any other institutions to be trained to share knowledge, information, and assistance, they are simply being taught by those who have gone through the same system — a system that is now plagued with corruption and misinformation, and which demands obedience from us, the participants, the people meant to keep this mass machine going and thriving off of our efforts. We simply take in the information and believe it, without doing any probing, questioning, or critical thinking for ourselves.

I think it will be some time before we’re all ready to open our minds to information that doesn’t fit the framework of accepted knowledge.

It reminds me of this recent “fake news” epidemic, in which Facebook has teamed up with Snopes, the Disney Corporation (mainstream media), and more to decide for people what they are able to see on Facebook’s platform and what they are not able to see. We now have outside agencies determining for us what is real and what is fake, rather than us doing it for ourselves. The key is not to censor information, but rather teach people how to think critically and examine sources.

“In our dream we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand.  The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk.  We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science.  We are not to raise up among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters.  We shall not search for embryo great artists, painters, musicians.  Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to raise up from among them lawyers, doctors, preachers, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply.”

– Rev. Frederick T. Gates, Business Advisor to John D. Rockefeller Sr., 1913

In school, we are simply taught to obey and memorize. If we don’t, we are punished. Each child is required to learn the accepted version of reality in order to fit into the specific mould necessary for us to become “productive” members of society. We are taught to be like everybody else, to never question the information we are given, and to move on and be a “product-full” member of society. Just like television, much of traditional education is simply programming. We are told we must do well in school in order to get a job so we can make money and pay our bills. It has nothing to do with the type of growth a human being needs. Good grades and marks do not signify intelligence. In school we are shown how to obey authority, how the world works, and what intelligence is — and is not.

Modern day education is heavily marketed as a place for us to learn, but is that really what it is? It’s just like many pharmaceutical grade medications — do they really heal, or have we simply been made to believe they do?

Prior to the late 1800s, education was a private practice that took place in private institutions or through home schooling. That all changed in 1902 when John D. Rockefeller created the General Education Board in conjunction with Frederick T. Gates, his close friend and business/personal advisor. The General Education Board was responsible for funding the American public school system, and provided over one hundred million dollars in 1902 while continuing their support beyond 1902. If we follow the money, it becomes clear that the GEB was responsible for the creation of the American public school system.

Does education not play a large role in manipulating the consciousness of human beings? By consciousness manipulation, I mean trying to influence the way that we perceive the environment around us. In order to implement this system, teachers need to teach, and somebody needs to teach the teachers, and somebody needs to teach them, too. It’s time we start questioning the real purpose of education, who exactly is putting human beings through this system, and for what purpose.

One cannot think for themselves in this type of environment. Real education comes from the individual, and has nothing to do with schooling.

“I want a nation of workers, not thinkers.” – John D. Rockefeller

A Real Education

I believe a real education comes from within. It is those who are passionate and curious about this world who will become truly educated, rather than receive the “education” that is used to obtain a piece of paper, so we can earn more pieces of paper in order to live.

Think of a child and how curious they are; the truly educated adult is the one who has maintained that curiosity and wonder.

All of the information presented in school can be accessed through the library. Does our continued support of the educational system, therefore, really stem from an innate desire to learn, or are we simply motivated by the idea of a good life? Do we simply want to fit in, make money, and get a job that people respect?

Forcing children through this system, into their early adulthood with post-secondary education, leaves them with no time to learn about our world because they are kept busy learning what the government wants us to learn.

We are almost at a point where it seems we’ve completely lost our critical thinking and questioning ability; the moment one questions something that is accepted by society, like eating meat for example, or the official story behind 9/11, one is instantly met with criticism and ridicule from people who haven’t bothered to research these issues for themselves.

The good news is that, with the birth of multiple social media platforms, the public now has access to information and sources that were not available to them before. We’ve seen billions of eyes viewing some sensitive information, which means there is something important happening. It means that millions of people are starting to question the world around them. This simple questioning opens the door to investigation, critical thinking, and answers. To question what mainstream media says, to question what governments tell us, as Snowden has alluded to so many times, is the duty of a true patriot.

These things are definitely not learned in the classroom, and there’s no doubt that education is key to changing our world, but school as we know it is not.

“Never confuse education with intelligence.”

– Albert Einstein
