Nonprofit Watchdog Uncovers $350 Million in Secret Payments to Fauci, Collins, Others at NIH
By Mark Tapscott
May 9, 2022Updated: May 10, 2022
An estimated $350 million in undisclosed royalties were paid to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and hundreds of its scientists, including the agency’s recently departed director, Dr. Francis Collins, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, according to a nonprofit government watchdog.
“We estimate that up to $350 million in royalties from third parties were paid to NIH scientists during the fiscal years between 2010 and 2020,” Open the Books CEO Adam Andrzejewski told reporters in a telephone news conference on May 9.
“We draw that conclusion because, in the first five years, there has been $134 million that we have been able to quantify of top-line numbers that flowed from third-party payers, meaning pharmaceutical companies or other payers, to NIH scientists.”
The first five years, from 2010 to 2014, constitute 40 percent of the total, he said.
“We now know that there are 1,675 scientists that received payments during that period, at least one payment. In fiscal year 2014, for instance, $36 million was paid out and that is on average $21,100 per scientist,” Andrzejewski said. “We also find that during this period, leadership at NIH was involved in receiving third-party payments. For instance, Francis Collins, the immediate past director of NIH, received 14 payments. Dr. Anthony Fauci received 23 payments and his deputy, Clifford Lane, received eight payments.”
Collins resigned as NIH director in December 2021 after 12 years of leading the world’s largest public health agency. Fauci is the longtime head of NIH’s National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), as well as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden. Lane is the deputy director of NIAID, under Fauci.
The top five NIH employees measured in terms of the number of royalty payments that they received while on the government payroll, according to a fact sheet published by Open the Books, include Robert Gallo, National Cancer Institute, 271 payments; Ira Pastan, National Cancer Institute, 250 payments; Mikulas Popovic, National Cancer Institute, 191 payments; Flossie Wong-Staal, National Cancer Institute, 190 payments; and Mangalasseril Sarngadharan, National Cancer Institute, 188 payments.
Only Pastan continues to be employed by NIH, according to Open the Books.
“When an NIH employee makes a discovery in their official capacity, the NIH owns the rights to any resulting patent. These patents are then licensed for commercial use to companies that could use them to bring products to market,” the fact sheet reads.
“Employees are listed as inventors on the patents and receive a share of the royalties obtained through any licensing, or ‘technology transfer,’ of their inventions. Essentially, taxpayer money funding NIH research benefits researchers employed by NIH because they are listed as patent inventors and therefore receive royalty payments from licensees.”
An NIH spokesman didn’t respond by press time to a request for comment.
Andrzejewski told reporters that the Associated Press reported extensively on the NIH royalty payments in 2005, including specific details about who got how much from which payers for what work, that the agency is denying to Open the Books in 2022.
“At that time, we knew there were 918 scientists, and each year, they were receiving approximately $9 million, on average with each scientist receiving $9,700. But today, the numbers are a lot larger with the United States still in a declared national health emergency. It’s quite obvious the stakes in health care are a lot larger,” Andrzejewski said.
He said the files Open the Books is receiving—300 pages of line-by-line data—are “heavily redacted.”
“These are not the files the AP received in 2005 where everything was disclosed—the scientist’s name, the name of the third-party payer, the amount of the royalty paid by the payer to the scientist,” Andrzejewski said. “Today, NIH is producing a heavily redacted database; we don’t know the payment amount to the scientist, and we don’t know the name of the third-party payer, all of that is being redacted.”
Federal officials are allowed to redact information from responses to FOIA requests if the release of the data would harm a firm’s commercial privilege.
The undisclosed royalty payments are inherent conflicts of interest, Andrzejewski said.
“We believe there is an unholy conflict of interest inherent at NIH,” he said. “Consider the fact that each year, NIH doles out $32 billion in grants to approximately 56,000 grantees. Now we know that over an 11-year period, there is going to be approximately $350 million flowing the other way from third-party payers, many of which receive NIH grants, and those payments are flowing back to NIH scientists and leadership.”
Fauci and Lane told AP that they agreed there was an appearance of a conflict of interest in getting the royalties, with Fauci saying that he contributed his royalties to charity. Lane didn’t do that, according to Andrzejewski.
The governing ethics financial disclosure form in the past defined the royalty payments as income recipients received from NIH, which meant the recipients weren’t required to list their payments on the form.
But Andrzejewski said NIH has refused to respond to his request for clarification on the disclosure issue.
“If they are not, none of these payments are receiving any scrutiny whatsoever and to the extent that a company making payments to either leadership or scientists, while also receiving grants … then that just on its face is a conflict of interest,” he said.
Open the Books is a Chicago-based nonprofit government watchdog that uses the federal and state freedom of information laws to obtain and then post on the internet trillions of dollars in spending at all levels of government.
The nonprofit filed a federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suit seeking documentation of all payments by outside firms to NIH and/or current and former NIH employees.
NIH declined to respond to the FOIA, so Open the Books is taking the agency to court, suing it for noncompliance with the FOIA. Open the Books is represented in federal court in the case by another nonprofit government watchdog, Judicial Watch.

Peterson began to receive widespread attention as a public intellectual in the late 2010s for his views on cultural and political issues.
Gregg Braden explains what happened in 325 AD. Emperor Constantine converted and established Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. The motivations of the Emperor were complex. Christianity had grown too powerful to suppress, and even Roman soldiers secretly converting to Christianity. Emperor Constantine established Christianity as the official roman religion, the 27 books of the bible where decided by a group of at and as it is today. All other forms of Christian beliefs were eliminated, by destroying and burning texts, letters and manuscripts. Many early followers of Christ were condemned by other Christians as heretics. Orthodox Christianity prevailed when in 397 C.E., the Council of Carthage established the orthodox New Testament canon with the 27 books. Through the years, the New Testament Canon had scribes copy by hand, word for word, taking or adding a word or even a letter has changed the meaning today. Nearly 2000 years later our understanding of Jesus teachings is from the New Testament Canon but with nearly 2000 years of editing. There are over 40 versions of the New Testament today. The church leaders provide their teachings to an uncertain concept, until now!
Now we have an astonishing variety of early Christian writings survive outside the canon of the New Testament. In many case, these writings expand upon the New Testament writings with a new understanding of Jesus’ message. For the first time we have access to an apocrypha Jesus, hidden or secret teachings. In 1945, original gnostic documents were found and is believed to be one of the most important archaeological finds in the 20th century. Thirteen ancient texts of Gnostic works called “codices” found in caves in Upper Egypt untouched by scribes, can be found in the Nag Hammadi Library . Among the manuscripts was the discovery of a complete copy of 114 secret sayings of Jesus, known as Gospel of Thomas, thought to be constructed in the 1st or 2nd century A.D. Some of the sayings in the Gospel of Thomas can be found in the New Testament.
We know the church version, but now we can know another version and you can seek the truth for yourself.
This is not a dimension of knowing, even subjectively, due to the lack of overview of cosmic and other in-pourings which affect each and every situation which produces catalyst. The subjective acceptance of that which is at the moment and the finding of love within that moment is the greater freedom.
That known as the subjective knowing without proof is, in some degree, a poor friend for there will be anomalies no matter how much information is garnered due to the distortions which form third-density. – Ra
As the truth is being revealed, we are learning the world is and was not as it seems. Our physical and metaphysical worlds are inseparable and today technology is being revealed before our very eyes.
HAARP - (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program) H.A.A.R.P. is a geophysical weapon so powerful, it is a weapon of mass destruction using Weather modification & manipulation.
On January 15, 1981 contact was made by an advanced extraterrestrial or social memory complex from the 6th dimension to a Group at L/L Research. The group was Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot, Carla Rueckert, a devoted Christian; , and James McCarty, the Scribe and sole survivor today. The contact was made so the group could ask questions and Ra would answer the question as long as it did not infringe on freewill. The group recorded and documented over 2360 questions and answers in 106 sessions from 1981 to 1984. Answers were given in a scientific and metaphysical vocabulary. Of particular interest is the question and answer related the above video and the events in Ukraine with Russia. The question was asked on August 8, 1981.
65.8 Questioner: Are you saying then that this possible condition of war would be much more greatly spread across the surface of the globe than anything we have experienced in the past and therefore touch a larger percentage of the population in this form of catalyst?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. There are those now experimenting with one of the major weapons of this scenario, that is the so-called psychotronic group of devices which are being experimentally used to cause such alterations in wind and weather as will result in eventual famine. If this program is not countered and proves experimentally satisfactory, the methods in this scenario would be made public. There would then be what those whom you call Russians hope to be a bloodless invasion of their personnel in this and every land deemed valuable. However, the peoples of your culture have little propensity for bloodless surrender.
Here’s a video segment by BBC documenting the NAZI problem in Ukraine back in 2017. There is evidence are pointing towards NATO armed & trained neo-Nazi battalion in the Ukraine Neutralizing & denazifying the Azov Battalion. The CIA May Be Breeding Nazi Terror in Ukraine. https://t.me/JFK_Awakening_Q17/107
Another interesting question related to weather patterns was asked and answered by Ra.
8.7Questioner: I’m puzzled by these craft that we have undersea bases for. They are [inaudible]. Is this technology sufficient to overshadow all other armaments? Do we have just the ability to fly in these craft or are there any weapons like there are… Were they given to us [inaudible] or are they just craft for transport? What is the basic mechanism of their [inaudible]? It’s really hard to believe is what I’m saying.
Ra: I am Ra. The craft are perhaps misnamed in some instances. It would be more appropriate to consider them as weaponry. The energy used is that of the field of electromagnetic energy which polarizes the Earth sphere. The weaponry is of two basic kinds: that which is called by your peoples psychotronic and that which is called by your peoples particle beam. The amount of destruction which is contained in this technology is considerable and the weapons have been used in many cases to alter weather patterns and to enhance the vibratory change which engulfs your planet at this time.
It is also interesting to note that in session 11:18 Ra spoke of mind control and enslavement by their own freewill. We that operation mockingbird?
11.18Questioner: Then we have crusaders from Orion coming to this planet for mind control purposes. How do they do this?
Ra: I am Ra. As all, they follow the Law of One observing free will. Contact is made with those who call. Those then upon the planetary sphere act much as do you to disseminate the attitudes and philosophy of their particular understanding of the Law of One which is service to self. These become the elite. Through these, the attempt begins to create a condition whereby the remainder of the planetary entities are enslaved by their free will.
The Law of One is a wonderful source of information. It takes you on a spiritual adventure revealing our purpose of existence and the consequences of our behavior. It is about love, light, wisdom, free-will and seeking the truth and as you see hints about our future. .
Scott Mandelker, PhD, said this is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”, and through a dream I was told “Ra is the largest unspoken truth”.

George Soros is publicly coming out and saying Xi, Putin and Trump need to be stopped in order to save civilization. That’s rather rich from the man who is admitted trying to destroy civilization.
This is all the confirmation I need that Xi, Putin and Trump are in ongoing special operations to expose and prosecute the deep state. And based on the mass panic from the deep state, it appears we are directly over the target. The Ukrainian US biolab activity is the entry point to investigating all US biolab activity, and discovering C19 was created and released intentionally.
If I am Russia, there is one super easy way to solve this issue and force a neutral party investigation from the UN: Agree to cease fire, if the UN agrees to enact Articles 5 and 6 of the the International Biological Convention to investigate the allegations of biological weapon production by the US.
The US would be put between a rock and a hard place. If they accept, they know what the investigation will lead to, and those responsible are subject to capital punishment a la DEATH. If they don’t accept, then they are proving they have something to hide and are willing to let war continue.
Obviously the deep state do not care about innocent life, and not saying Putin is a saint in all this, but these labs are creating genome specific bioweapons designed to target and wipe out the Russian population. This is a direct threat to Russian National Security and dictates the proper response from Putin to protect his people from ANOTHER biological weapon of mass destruction. As if C19 wasn’t enough.
If Russia was creating genome specific DNA hunting bioweapons at our border, the US MIL would be raining hell the likes of which the world has never seen.
The ball is rolling. We are now on the offensive. Do not let up. All gas, no brakes.
Ex-military meteorologist acknowledges that they are spraying chemtrails live on main stream media. All of this is under the pretense of global warming. Dane Wigington has been sounding the alarm for years about Geoengineering, but has been labeled as a conspiracy theorist, a name used to label people to ensure others do not listen or pay attention. Dane said with each passing day the transformation of our world is accelerating, the human race is pushing our once thriving planet past the point of no return.
Today, all anyone has to do is go outside on most days and just look up. What many believe to be clouds or contrails, are Chemtrails or geoengineering sprayed by aircraft spread out nd block the sunlight, called Sunshade geoengineering. All of us, including the deniers, breathe the chemicals that are sprayed which seem to be continuous. All of this is under the pretense of global warming. It is not reported by mainstream media for a reason.
They do not want public uproar, but the meantime people are sicker today than ever before. According to the Global Burden of Disease study in 2013 there are only about 4 percent of people worldwide had no health problems while a third, about 2.3 billion people, had more than five health problems. Infectious diseases are spreading around the world faster than ever, says the World Health Organization, and new diseases are emerging at the unprecedented rate of one a year.
People are taking notice. Robert Lee, a concerned citizen and U.S. Marine veteran who owns and operates Rockingham Guns and Ammo wrote “Chemtrails: What are they spraying” in the Richmond County Daily Journal. Even the CIA Director John O.Brennan, talks openly about Geoengineering, at the Council Of Foreign Relations , 29th June 2016. There is an extensive list of geoengineering patents starting in 1891. Companies are making a business out of geoengineering and there is a long list.
Harvard scientists launched one of the largest research programs into “solar geoengineering,” a controversial technique involving the injection of aerosols into the stratosphere with the goal of cooling the planet and reversing climate change. Professor David Keith admits many thousands will die from Harvard Solar Geoengineering Program 2018. David Keith, on the Colbert Report, and on Ted Talk spreading the Geoengineering Conspiracy. Bill Gates backs climate scientists lobbying for large-scale geoengineering and the UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee wrote a regulation for geoengineering in 2010. There are experiments with the HAARP Ionospheric Heater which is basically a particle beam, uses a high-energy beam of atomic or subatomic particles to damage the target by disrupting its atomic or molecular structure.
For those of you that are familiar with the Law of One, a spiritual event that occurred from 1981 to 1984, we are told “The energy used is that of the field of electromagnetic energy which polarizes the Earth sphere. The weaponry is of two basic kinds: that which is called by your peoples psychotronic and that which is called by your peoples particle beam. The amount of destruction which is contained in this technology is considerable and the weapons have been used in many cases to alter weather patterns and to enhance the vibratory change which engulfs your planet at this time” in Session 8.7. No one knew of the Experiments with the HAARP Ionospheric Heater in 1981. In session 8.27, also addresses unmanned crafts which we know as drones today. That information was not readily available to the public in 1981.
Geoengineering is being conducted based on the global warming conspiracy. It is a wonderful excuse for doing things that they want to do under the pretense of saving the planet. Even more dangerous are those with hidden political agenda. So lets review the facts.
This graph depicts changes in ice temperature during the last several glacial-interglacial cycles and comparison to changes in global ice volume. Over the past thousand years temperature changes have and did occur, a normal cycle for our planet.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer argued that stupid people are more dangerous than evil ones. This is because while we can protest against or fight evil people, against stupid ones we are defenseless — reasons fall on death ears. Bonhoeffer’s famous text, which we slightly edited for this video, serves any free society as a warning of what can happen when certain people gain too much power.
Dr. Bruce Lipton explains we have been programmed since birth and it has continued through Operation Mockingbird. Our education, media, political and religious systems play an integral part of who we have become. We have been guided daily through a world wide messaging system and are now learning they are using addictive “Brain Hijacking” to control us.
Addictive “brain hijacking” methods used by social media giants to keep users on their platforms have harmful effects, particularly on children, according to industry insider Rex Lee, who says the companies may be violating child protection laws and consumer protection laws by employing such techniques.
Lee, who has over 35 years of experience in the tech and telecom industry, recently testified before Congress, speaking to members about some of the deceptive practices used by social media networks—in particular, “brain hijacking.”
“The first time I’d ever heard of brain hijacking, I thought it was something from a science fiction movie,” he recently told EpochTV’s Crossroads program.
He said that social media apps, including those developed by Google, Meta, and Bytedance, are intentionally developed to be addictive.
Part of what makes these platforms addictive is associated with brain hijacking technologies, which involve suggestive and manipulative advertising, he explained.
Lee, who works in the tech industry for an enterprise app and platform developer, said that he was shocked after coming across an admission in a 2017 Axios interview by Sean Parker, who served as the first president of Facebook.
In the interview, Parker said that Facebook was intentionally developed using addictive technologies associated with something he described as a “social validation feedback loop.”
“That in itself is what is at the heart of brain hijacking,” Lee said. “And what that does is that reassures the end user that what they’re posting on the platform is being accepted by a lot of people. In other words, a social validation feedback loop would be associated with a thumbs up, or confetti or emojis, and that sort of thing after they do a post.”
Lee said these are addictive qualities that developers put into their app and platform designs, which ultimately end up harming the user.
“Sean Parker actually admitted this during the Axios interview when he said, ‘God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains,’” Lee said. “But it’s not only the brains of children, it’s the brains of the end user, whether it’s an adult, teen, child, or business and user.
“This is why people are checking their smartphones up to 150 times a day.”
Lee added that Parker expressly told Axios that the feedback loop was “exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting vulnerability in human psychology.”
Lee has been providing to congressional committees, as well as senators and House members, insider information on how these platforms are developed.
The cybersecurity and privacy adviser also highlighted the harmful effects these social media platforms have on young teenagers, describing the platforms as “no different than tobacco companies making bubblegum-flavored cigarettes to sell to children.”
“These social validation feedback loops are what’s at heart, and why young teen girls as well as boys who utilize this technology can be harmed by it—they get addicted to it, they never can find fulfillment in it,” Lee said.
“And then, they end up depressed and they end up always constantly having to look for that validation, not only from the technology, but from the other end users on the platform.”
“This also is dangerous because it contributes to cyber bullying,” said Lee, explaining that cyberbullies themselves may become addicted to bullying others online.
“They [cyberbullies] get a few thumbs up from that post where they’re bullying somebody and then more thumbs up comes. And then that person, the bully, becomes addicted to actually harming people, as well as the recipient starts getting harmed,” he explained. “And we all know what that leads to anxiety, self harm, as well as suicides. And all of those are up among teen and young adult adult users, especially young girls who utilize the platform.”
“It’s actually illegal for a child under 13 to use any type of technology that’s supported by predatory apps that are developed to exploit the user for financial gain through methods such as data mining and surveillance,” Lee said of the law.
Lee said he analyzed the legal language on a Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone that was pre-installed with over 175 apps created or developed by 18 companies, including Chinese tech company Baidu.
This includes the application permission statements and application product warnings “which describe in great detail how much surveillance and data mining that the tech companies can conduct on you.”
“But they don’t want that online. They hide that within the devices, and some of those application permission statements actually contain product warnings,” Lee said.
“So again, another cigarette analogy would be, it would be like the warning for cigarettes being printed on the inside of the package,” he explained. “So that after you consume the product, you understand then that it commit that it can cause cancer, it’s the same thing.”
He added, “They’re hiding the product warnings within the application permission statements, which can only be accessed from within the device and not online.”
Lee said the FTC should be taking action to investigate these companies for related harm reported by their consumers, and enforce existing customer laws, particularly since former senior executives, such as Parker, have admitted that they developed these technologies to be addictive, “even at the expense of the end user safety.”
“We not only had these platforms weaponized against the end user to exploit them for financial gain through harmful technology, such as addictive apps, but now they’re using them to oppress people and spread misinformation, censorship, crush freedom of the press, and in other things,” Lee added. “It’s unbelievable.”

Attorney Leigh Dundas provides us with update on the lawsuits filed over vaccine mandates.
We live in a worldwide system of control that is keeping us sick, possibly alternating our genes in the pretense of making it a better world. They now want to vaccinate the masses with an experimental vaccine. They have been adding harmful fluoride to drinking water for year. Science suggests the calcifications plays a role in the development of Alzheimer disease. Fluoridated water is believed to be one of the chief causes of calcification. Evidence also suggests that children reach puberty earlier now as a consequence of fluoridated water. We are told fluoridated water was to prevent tooth decay, but does it really? UK Lord speaks out in Parliament on the dangers of Fluoride so you can decide.
Perhaps the fluoride is to calcify our pineal gland, preventing us from knowing our true self. With all its research, science still does not fully understand the pineal gland, but seems to agree it is indispensable most of us take for granted. More research is needed to understand additional pineal gland functions and determine how light and melatonin affect everyday health.
We have geoengineering under the pretense of global warming polluting the air we breathe. Who controls these systems and why do they want control?
If you are looking for the truth, perhaps you should start by viewing this documentary, the Great Awaken, The World is About to Change. The documentary has been censored by YouTube and other social media platforms. Watch not just for your sake, but for your children and the children of the would. It will help prepare you for what is coming. The world is not as it seems and we cannot separate the physical and metaphysical worlds.
We are all involved in a battle of light and dark forces, realizing we are experiencing events we have never seen before. It really hard to realize we are living in the land of the free and home of the brave. Perhaps it is time to release materialistic, atheistic and totalitarian beliefs and take back our faith, freedom, country and the world and allow that to be core of our beliefs. We have allowed fear to control our lives. Fear has been falsely dictated by mainstream and social media. Fear is nothing more than a state a mind. The media is just another arm of the elites to control the masses while the puppets masters pull the strings of the bureaucrats that were improperly put in office. They were not elected by the people but are part of a conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States, as well as governments of the world. If the United States falls, so does the world.
“We have watched your group. We have been called to your group, for you have a need for the diversity of experiences in channeling which go with a more intensive, or as you might call it, advanced approach to the system of studying the patterns of the illusions of your body, your mind, and your spirit, which you call seeking the truth. We hope to offer you a somewhat different slant upon the information which is always and ever the same.”
That was the initial contacted by an advanced extraterrestrials from the sixth density or dimension named Ra, also known as a Social Memory Complex. Ra contacted L/L Research (Love and Light) because of the three members cohesiveness. The L&L members were Don Elkins, a former Physics Professor and Airline pilot; Carla Rueckert, the instrument RA used for channeling known as “tuned trance telepathy”, a devoted Christian; and James McCarty, the scribe and sole survivor today. The contacted lasted from 1981 to 1984 totaling 106 sessions through “tuned trance telepathy”. During those years Don asked 2360 questions and RA provided answers that addressed much that is happening in our world today. Answers would not be given if it infringe on free-will. James McCarthy recorded and documented each session and is known as the The Law of One. The Law of One is rich, vast and esoteric with the some of the same conceptual teachings all religions. According to RA , “The information buried within has to do with a deeper understanding of love and light, and the attempts of infinite intelligence through many messengers to teach/learn those entities of your sphere”.
Scott Mandelker PhD, said this material is “One of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus”. Scott has been studying the material most of his life and has dedicated his time, wisdom and understanding to a very important message. His reading and commentary can be found in his each of his 226 videos of Law of One series , available on YouTube. The videos are labeled by session corresponding with the online database.
The Science of Channeling webinar, CHI colleague and IONS Director of Research, Dr. Helané Wahbeh, speaks about the overwhelming amount of scientific evidence for psychic phenomena thanks to a branch of scientific study we call noetic science. The word “noetic” comes from a Greek word meaning intuitive knowing or mystical awareness. Dr. Wahbeh comes from a long line of trance channelers so she brings a unique lens to the scientific study of channeling.
To know the self is to know the universe. An entity which does not know itself sees many things and believes them. An entity which starts upon the path of spiritual seeking finds one after another landmark disappearing. It realizes that it does not know anything, that it cannot depend upon its five senses or upon logical thought in order to make skillful choices within third density.
Perhaps the goal of knowing the self in the end is to find that one does not know and cannot understand, except within that great open and radiant energy which is called the heart. – Q’uo

Meanwhile in Europe: European Parliament EU in Brussels, Christine Anderson: “In the entire history of mankind, there has never been a political elite that has been seriously concerned about the welfare of ordinary people. What makes any of us think it’s any different now?
Grace is the spiritual freedom that arises when you realize that life is a gift. From this awareness you seek to live in harmony with the Infinite Creator, the power that creates the cosmos. From this friendship arises a profound feeling of happiness as well as spiritual, emotional and mental freedom.
When You are AWAKE, You will realize, WE are the LIGHT, WE are the TRUTH, We are the WAY, We are CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS, the second coming of CHRIST.
We are living in a time when the world is experiencing a spiritual awakening and evolution. All of us are receiving thoughts and messages streaming’s from Infinite Intelligence through our guardian angels or spirit guides. We are here to learn understand our true selves, to learn how to balance love and wisdom and use our body in its natural function.
Universal Intelligence, our Creator also known as God, connects us all. Science may call it a quantum or biofield, described as “a field of energy and information. According to science the properties of the field could be based on electromagnetic fields, coherent states, biophotons, quantum and quantum-like processes. The former Dr. Valerie V. Hunt, scientist, author, lecturer and Professor Emeritus of Physiological Science at the University of California confirmed electromagnetic energy is the most plentiful constant energy of our universe. Science also tells us that our heart electromagnetic energy field can be detected and measured several feet from the body and is 100 time stronger than the field of our brains.
The Abrahamic religions, Christians, Jews and Islam may refer to this quantum or biofield as the Holy Spirit while while Taoist refer to chi or qi and the Dao or the way. Hindu refer to prana and chakras while the Buddha included prana under a different name, one that is also used in yoga. The word is virya, meaning vitality, or life energy.
Consider all the different labels of this biofield by science and some of the religious belief the same. When are energic beings that do not realize we are co-creators of our reality based on our thoughts, emotions and actions. Look at the world around us. We do not even realize how powerful we are because we do not know our true selves.
We know how our body is affected by bacteria, viruses and an array of toxins from our our foods, medications and environment. Our bodies suffer from pain that needs physical healing and the first place we go is to the doctor and get medication, instead of looking to natural cures such as food, herbs and spices. Our minds are susceptible to infection by fear, worries, anger, greed, selfishness, jealousy just to name of few, which requires mental healing that is fueled by Mainstream Media through many sources. That is Our spirit is haunted by the disease of forgetting our true nature which cause man to forget their perfect divine nature and focus on the physical world. Ignorance creates imbalances between body, mind and spirit.
So how do we heal? There is the still, small voice within each of us that knows the answer to our questions. Perhaps now more than anytime in history is the time to be aware, listen and evaluate the polarity, positive or negative, and use Love as your benchmark.
When You are AWAKE, You will realize, WE are the LIGHT, WE are the TRUTH, We are the WAY, We are CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS, the second coming of CHRIST. We are ONE!
When You are AWAKE, You will realize, You are the LIGHT, You are the TRUTH, You are the WAY, You are the CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS

Despite the passage of laws in some states banning Critical Race Theory (CRT) from being taught in schools, some educators are teaching other educators how to “back-door it” into the classrooms.
A teacher in Iowa posted a video teaching other educators how to circumvent the ban on teaching Critical Race Theory in her state.
In Florida, a Duval County teacher was removed from her position because she refused to remove a banner in support of Black Lives Matter from outside the door to her classroom.
The Zinn Education Project has collected the names of nearly 7,500 educators who vow to keep pushing CRT into classrooms despite the passage of laws banning CRT in a growing number of states.
While the head of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Randi Weingarten, denied that critical race theory was even taught in elementary schools or high schools, she vowed to fight back against “culture warriors” who are “bullying teachers.”
In June 2020, the Florida Board of Education unanimously passed a rule banning CRT from being taught in the schools.
But on Sept. 20, Florida Atlantic University sponsored a webinar where Dr. Gholnecsar (Gholdy) Muhammad—an associate professor of language and literacy at Georgia State University—taught educators in Miami Dade, Broward, Martin, and Palm Beach County how to creatively slip the divisive subject matter through the back door of any classroom, regardless of subject matter.
This was not the first time Muhammad made a conscious effort to promote CRT in the classroom. During a 2020 interview, Muhammad discussed her plans for revising the entire education system in five steps.
First, Muhammad believes educators “need to get a team together to write new learning standards that are embedded in identity, skill development, intellectualism, joy, and criticality.”
Second, Muhammad said they need “new standards for folks who are writing curriculum,” suggesting they “will no longer write a curriculum that’s absent of identity and cultural-responsiveness.”
Third, “we need to change the way we think about standardized testing,” she added. “Skills-only does not measure success for a child’s life.”
Fourth, Muhammad wants schools to “stop hiring folks who don’t have a justice-centered mindset.”
“If they don’t have this justice-centered mindset, stop hiring them as Secretary of Education, stop hiring them as school board members, as superintendents, as principals, as teachers, as staff. Period,” Muhammad said.
“The fifth part of the plan is teacher education,” Muhammad concluded, suggesting “diversity” cannot be “learned in one class” but rather it needs to be “threaded throughout the entire program.”
“This calls for hiring conscious professors who know how to research and teach within the realms of critical race theory and other theories like it,” she said.
The Epoch Times reached out to Muhammad for comment.
Difficulties in Defining CRT
“This is very similar to what has happened here in Loudoun,” Patti Hidalgo Menders—president of Loudoun County Republican Women’s Club in Virginia—told The Epoch Times. “They’re implementing CRT under the guise of equity and diversity.”
Menders explained how the new principal at Parkview High School—Dr. Jason Jefferson—immediately removed the heads of all departments and “fired the bookkeeper because she wouldn’t take the equity training.”
“Then he gave a speech about how he wanted to ‘dismantle and disrupt the American public education system,’” Menders said. “So they’re making it very clear what their progressive ideas are.”
“Dr. Jefferson asked Park View’s department chairs to re-apply for their positions,” Wayde B. Byard, public information officer for Loudoun County Public Schools told The Epoch Times. “This is a common practice used when administrations change so that the principal can interview the department chairs and get to know them. At Park View, all the department chairs reapplied and all were reappointed.”
Byard also said “there was no bookkeeper at Park View when Dr. Jefferson assumed his position on May 25. Thus, he fired no one.”
“Dr. Jefferson related to me that he did not make the following statement: ‘dismantle and disrupt the American public education system,’” Byard stated further. “I would hope that anyone who would make such an accusation would be willing to stand behind it. Attributing such a quote anonymously would be cowardly.”
Menders also shared how the Loudoun County school board “spent hundreds of thousands of dollars hiring equity consultants.”
“One group is called The Equity Collaborative,” Menders explained, “and while the superintendent of Loudoun Public Schools claims they are not teaching CRT in schools, it talks about CRT training right on their website.”
“The LCPS Ad Hoc Committee on Equity created an Equity Resolution that was adopted by the Loudoun County School Board on September 24, 2019,” the website explains.
“As a part of the on-going equity work in the school division, on June 8, 2021, the newly appointed superintendent, Dr. Scott Ziegler, recommended that the Equity Resolution be reaffirmed by the current School Board. By consensus, the board recommended that this resolution [pdf] should be publicly available.
“In recent days, media reports and social media posts have sought to distort the equity work by Loudoun County Public Schools,” LCPS Superintendent Dr. Scott Ziegler states on the LCPS website. “Misconceptions and misinformation persist. I want to take a moment to clarify LCPS’ efforts to ensure every student, employee and member of the community is treated in an equitable, respectful manner.”
“In explaining LCPS’ equity priorities, it might be helpful to state what they are not,” Ziegler explains. “They are not an effort to indoctrinate students and staff into a particular philosophy or theory. What they are is an effort to provide a welcoming, inclusive, affirming environment for all students.”
However, the Equity Collaborative website clearly states that their “goal is to help organizations develop their own capacity to create educational equity and social justice by addressing bias and oppression.”
“That means creating an environment that is capable of holding staff members in a place where they are uncomfortable enough to change, but not so uncomfortable as to disengage or revolt,” the Equity Collaborative explains.
The Epoch Times reached out to LCPS for clarification regarding what some, like Menders, see as a contradiction in claims.
“Loudoun County Public Schools has said—repeatedly—and I will repeat now,” Byard told The Epoch Times regarding this separate matter. “Critical Race Theory is not part of our curriculum.”
“They’re very good wordsmiths,” Menders said. “They’re re-branding CRT and calling it ‘equity, diversity, and inclusion.’”
“All they do is take the various aspects of CRT propaganda and change the language, change the name,” Pruitt told The Epoch Times, explaining how textbooks used to mention “Critical Race Theory, or Race Theory” by name.
“Now when you open those same textbooks, you’ll read things such as ‘diversity and inclusion or equity theory,’ which is the same baseline as CRT,” he explained. “That’s one way they back-door it.”
Asked how people can oppose “critical race theory and other theories like it” being taught in schools, Pruitt said parents can provide the first line of defense themselves.
“The best avenue is to take over the school boards to monitor and fire teachers who are determined to push CRT,” he said bluntly. “They also have to be represented in the education department at the state level. It’s not enough to take over the school board and have a blue governor. Even if you have a red governor, like in Florida. You’ll still get resistance in the education department.”
“What needs to happen is almost like the spoil system,” Pruitt went further, “where parents take over school boards and conservative governors are elected, and then the governor basically wipes out the entire state-level education bureaucracy and puts in new people. That’s the only real way to solve it.”
While Pruitt anticipates the pushback from parents at school board meetings will continue to increase, as will the number of parents who send their kids to different schools or resort to a home school program, pro-CRT publishers are going to keep “pushing the agenda they want” through the textbooks they provide to their supporters throughout the school system.
“Under a different name with new adjectives and nouns, CRT is concealed, shrouded, veiled, or disguised in the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) ELA curriculum,” Pruitt noted. “With the use of subliminal messages, teachers are guided to teach Social Emotional Learning (SEL), equity, diversity, inclusion, etc. Feelings are more important than facts.”
As The Epoch Times reported on June 8, HMH declared on its own website a “commitment” to Black Lives Matter (BLM) and “social justice.”
“We believe the education system needs to change,” the website states, “and we will continue to use our platform to make that change.”
Members of the Collier County School Board (CCSB) were made aware of this during a June 7 meeting by CCSB Vice-Chair Jen Mitchell, who said she learned of the “commitment” through an email she received from a concerned citizen. Mitchell further revealed that one of BLM’s greatest advocates in the education field—Dr. Tyrone Howard—had been given a platform to promote the principles of CRT and BLM through the HMH blog site.
“It will be a wait-out, like everything else with the left,” Pruitt explained. “In other words, they don’t have to win. The left has a hold of the publishing world, and they are teaching it in higher education. So it doesn’t matter what the textbooks say in K-12.”
Pruitt strongly suggests parents “actually open and read the textbooks and highlight passages and send it out to people to show other parents what their children are being taught.” According to Pruitt, “most parents don’t understand the language of diversity and inclusion.” He posited that, when people were first waking up to CRT, it was because it was easy to find if one only bothered to look. They used words like “white people” and “oppression,” which most people found to be “troublesome and problematic.”
“But when you use language like diversity and inclusion,” Pruitt suggested, “it doesn’t come off as rough.”
“The people haven’t changed. The committees haven’t changed. The publishers haven’t changed,” Pruitt said. “It’s the language they’re changing.”
“By the time these children graduate, they will not be able to read but they will be great activists who hate their families, God, and America,” Pruitt predicted. “What a horrible thing to do to a child.”
Pruitt said “we all breathed a sigh of relief” when the Florida Board of Education banned the teaching of CRT in Florida, “embracing a traditional American education.”
“Wonderful we thought, Florida students will be getting a great education. The entire nation said we must use Florida as an example,” he recalled. “How wrong we were. We must remember that Communists NEVER stop.”
It is the opinion of Pruitt that the curriculum department of the Florida Department of Education is either “incompetent and never reviewed the texts and curricula that they approved” or they’re “undermining Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran.”
“In either case,” he admonished. “they should be fired.”

The “black swan” event of a solar superstorm directed at earth could prompt an “internet apocalypse” across the entire globe that could last for several months, new research has warned.
University of California Irvine assistant professor Sangeetha Abdu Jyothi presented the new research, titled “Solar Superstorms: Planning for an Internet Apocalypse,” last month during the Association for Computing Machinery’s annual conference for their Special Interest Group on Data Communication (SIGCOMM).
“One of the greatest dangers facing the Internet with the potential for global impact is a powerful solar superstorm,” Jyothi wrote in the new research paper.
“Although humans are protected from these storms by the earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere, they can cause significant damage to man-made infrastructure. The scientific community is generally aware of this threat with modeling efforts and precautionary measures being taken, particularly in the context of power grids. However, the networking community has largely overlooked this risk during the design of the network topology and geo-distributed systems such as DNS and data centers,” he continued.
A solar storm, also known as a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), occurs when a large mass of plasma and highly magnetized particles violently eject from the sun. Large CME’s can contain up to a billion tons of matter and can get accelerated to large fractions of the speed of light.
When the earth is in the direct path of a CME, these magnetized and charged solar particles interact with the earth’s magnetic field, producing geomagnetically induced currents (GIC) that can potentially disrupt communication satellites and long-distance cables that provide the world with the Internet.
According to Jyothi’s research, power grids, oil and gas pipelines, and networking cables are the most vulnerable to the impacts of GIC’s, while submarine cables, which span hundreds or thousands of kilometres, are even more vulnerable than land cables, due to their larger lengths.
Owing to a lack of real world data on the impacts of GIC’s on these submarine cables, scientists still don’t know how long it would take to repair them if such an event were to occur, and—just like natural disasters such as earthquakes—CME’s are extremely difficult for scientists to predict.
The research noted that the “distribution of internet infrastructure is skewed when compared to the distribution of Internet users,” and high-latitude climates are more at risk if a solar storm were to occur.
“The U.S. is one of the most vulnerable locations with a high risk of disconnection from Europe during extreme solar events. Intra-continental connections in Europe are at a lower risk due to the presence of a large number of shorter land and submarine cables interconnecting the continent,” the report notes.
Meanwhile, if a severe solar superstorm were to occur, Singapore would maintain good connectivity to neighboring countries, while cities in China would be more likely to lose connectivity than India because China connects to much longer cables.
Australia, New Zealand, and other island countries in the region would be at high risk of losing most of their long-distance connections.
The research warns that a collapse of the Internet—even one lasting a few minutes—could cause devastating losses to service providers and damage cyber-physical systems. The economic impact of an internet disruption for a day in the United States is estimated to be over $7 billion.
While the likelihood of a solar superstorm hitting earth is rare—with astrophysicists noting that the probability of extreme space weather events that directly impact earth occurring are between 1.6 percent to 12 percent per decade—they can still happen.
In 1921, a solar storm, driven by a series of coronal mass ejections, triggered extensive power outages and caused damage to telephone and telegraph systems associated with railroad systems in New York City and across the state.
“Although we have sentinel spacecraft that can issue early warnings of CMEs providing at least 13 hours of lead time, our defenses against GIC are limited. Hence, we need to prepare the infrastructure for an eventual catastrophe to facilitate efficient disaster management,” Jyothi said.
The research pointed to “increasing capacity in lower latitudes for improved resiliency during solar storms,” and having “mechanisms for electrically isolating cables connecting to higher latitudes from the rest” at submarine cable landing points to prevent large-scale failures.
The paper has yet to appear in a peer-reviewed journal.
