Kash Patel Reveals Pelosi, Schumer Wanted Tanks at The Capital; Marines Speak of the State of The Military; COVID UPDATE: What is the truth? – PMC (nih.gov);CNN Speaks Truth?

Kash Patel just revealed that Pelosi, Schumer & Co were calling them (the DoD) during the “insurrection” and asking for M1 Abrams tanks, APC’s (armored personnel carriers) and humvees plated up with machine guns to come to the Capitol. Literally stuff you see rolling down the street in Afghanistan.

COVID UPDATE: What is the truth? – PMC (nih.gov)

78.11 Questioner: Could you elaborate please on the nature and quality of the matrix and the potentiator?

Ra: I am Ra. In the mind complex the matrix may be described as consciousness. It has been called the Magician. It is to be noted that of itself consciousness is unmoved. The potentiator of consciousness is the unconscious. This encompasses a vast realm of potential in the mind.

In the body the matrix may be seen as Balanced Working or Even Functioning. Note that here the matrix is always active with no means of being inactive. The potentiator of the body complex, then, may be called Wisdom for it is only through judgment that the unceasing activities and proclivities of the body complex may be experienced in useful modes.

The Matrix of the Spirit is what you may call the Night of the Soul or Primeval Darkness. Again we have that which is not capable of movement or work. The potential power of this extremely receptive matrix is such that the potentiator may be seen as Lightning. In your archetypical system called the tarot this has been refined into the concept complex of the Lightning Struck Tower. However, the original potentiator was light in its sudden and fiery form; that is, the lightning itself.  Law of One

Edgar Cayce And The Children Of Law Of One

65.9 Questioner: We would seem to have dual catalysts operating, and the question is which one is going to act first. The prophecies, I will call them, made by Edgar Cayce indicated many Earth changes and I am wondering about the mechanics of describing what we call the future. Ra, it has been stated, is not a part of time and yet we concern ourselves with probability/possibility vortices. It is very difficult for me to understand how the mechanism of prophecy operates. What is the value of a prophecy such as Cayce made with respect to Earth changes with respect to all of these scenarios?

Ra: I am Ra. Consider the shopper entering the store to purchase food with which to furnish the table for the time period you call a week. Some stores have some items, others a variant set of offerings. We speak of these possibility/probability vortices when asked with the understanding that such are as a can, jar, or portion of goods in your store.

It is unknown to us as we scan your time/space whether your peoples will shop hither or yon. We can only name some of the items available for the choosing. The, shall we say, record which the one you call Edgar read from is useful in that same manner. There is less knowledge in this material of other possibility/probability vortices and more attention paid to the strongest vortex. We see the same vortex but also see many others. Edgar’s material could be likened unto one hundred boxes of your cold cereal, another vortex likened unto three, or six, or fifty of another product which is eaten by your peoples for breakfast. That you will breakfast is close to certain. The menu is your own choosing.

The value of prophecy must be realized to be only that of expressing possibilities. Moreover, it must be, in our humble opinion, carefully taken into consideration that any time/space viewing, whether by one of your time/space or by one such as we who view the time/space from a dimension, shall we say, exterior to it will have a quite difficult time expressing time measurement values. Thus prophecy given in specific terms is more interesting for the content or type of possibility predicted than for the space/time nexus of its supposed occurrence. Law of One

Depressed Woman Dies on Operating Table, Sees Heaven and Future Events, Returns to Life a New Person

BY TARA MACISAAC TIMEJUNE 12, 2022

Tricia Barker was depressed. She was 21 years old, in college studying English, unsure what career would follow, and generally feeling that life was hopeless and painful. She tried to take her own life by washing a handful of pills down with alcohol.

She woke up 36 hours later still in her own room. She didn’t tell anyone she had attempted suicide, but decided to move forward with her life. As a symbol of getting her life back on track, she started training for a 10 km race.

On the way to the race, she had a terrible car accident.

After her suicide attempt, Barker trained to run a 10 km race as a way to recover from deep depression. After weeks of training, she was on her way to run the race when she had a head-on collision. Her back was broken in several places, she couldn’t feel her legs, and she had internal injuries. Without health insurance, it took nearly 20 hours to find a surgeon who would operate on her. She spent those 20 hours lying in the hospital without painkillers or any relief.

Finally on the operating table, Barker was anesthetized.

In an instant, her spirit left her body.

“The anesthesiologist put the mask over me and then I was out of my body,” she said, snapping her fingers to show how quickly it happened.

“At the time, I was agnostic and so I was so shocked the spirit goes on. I wanted to pop back in my body, wake up, and tell all my friends, ‘Hey, we do go on!’” she recounted in a video she made, sharing her experience.

She saw her own body on the table, with her back opened up and blood everywhere. Two angels came to her and calmed her. She saw them send light through the surgeons and into her body.

At that moment, she knew the surgeons would be able to remove the debris from her back and she would walk again.

But that’s when she saw the monitor flatline.

While her body lay there dead, she visited her loved ones and saw events that were later verified to have really happened.

Distressed at seeing her body there dead, unsure how the doctors could revive her, she didn’t want to view the scene any longer. With that thought, she was instantly in the hallway.

This is where something happened that has made her case of great interest to near-death experience (NDE) researchers. She saw her stepfather, a health nut who would never touch sweets, getting a candy bar from a vending machine in the hallway of the hospital and eating it. This was later verified to have really happened.

Such an event is called a “veridical perception.” Veridical perceptions are observations a person remembers from an out-of-body experience that can be independently verified. These are things that they could not have known through ordinary means.

Some scientists, like neurologist Kevin Nelson at the University of Kentucky, try to explain NDEs as processes in the brain similar to those that occur when a person dreams or suddenly loses oxygen.

Scientists have tried to explain NDEs as processes in the brain, but Dr. Jan Holden says none of those explanations can account for the phenomenon.

Yet Dr. Jan Holden, a professor at the University of North Texas and a long-time NDE researcher, has identified about 100 cases of veridical perception. She has determined through her examination of hundreds of NDE cases that this common phenomenon cannot be explained through the kind of ordinary processes proposed by Nelson.

“Any material explanation that’s been attempted doesn’t account for some of the things that happen in NDEs,” Holden said in a recorded lecture she gave to present her book, “The Handbook of Near-Death Experiences.” “None of those models can explain how Tricia knew that her stepfather was vending a candy bar while she was unconscious and flatlined in the surgical room.”

Barker’s is one of the many NDE cases Holden has investigated.

One in five people who have a brush with death have an out-of-body experience.

Holden has found that about one out of every five people who have a brush with death have a similarly profound out-of-body experience. Many people don’t discuss them openly, for fear of ridicule. Some NDEers have even been put in psychiatric care because of talking about their experiences.

But Holden has found that the mental health of NDEers reflects that of the population at large. These people are as sane and rational as anyone else. The impacts of these experiences are vastly positive. About 90 percent of people who have an NDE find it a pleasant experience, and many of them come back happier and with a strong sense of purpose.

“I had never felt any love like that — a mom’s love, romantic love, nothing could compare.”

Barker’s experience didn’t end with the candy bar. She heard the silent prayers of her mother, her aunt, and others. When she heard the sorrow in her family’s prayers, she almost wanted to go back. But a light beckoned. “The light was so incredible, I had never felt any love like that — a mom’s love, romantic love, nothing could compare,” she recalled.

She found herself in a field more real and beautiful than anything on Earth. Her grandfather, who had already died, was there with her.

Then she saw hundreds of lights, and she knew that each represented a future student of hers. She knew she should be a teacher; that would be her career path. Not only would she teach English, but she would teach others about what she had experienced in death.

She felt what it was like to be on the receiving end of her actions, what impact she had on others.

The past as well as the future flashed before her. It wasn’t necessarily the major events or relationships in her life that were emphasized, but rather her interactions with people who had played small roles. There were people she didn’t connect with because she thought they were different from her, but she saw that they had prayed for her and worried about her when she was depressed.

She was able to feel and see how her actions toward others impacted them. Holden said this is a common experience during NDEs. It often makes NDEers more committed to considering others in their actions, because they know that at the end of their lives they will have to experience again all of the feelings they cause in others.

She felt that the angels and God did not judge her negatively for the things she had done.

Although Barker felt remorse for some of her actions, she felt that the angels and God did not judge her negatively for the things she had done. They felt sad for some of the choices she made, but they didn’t judge her in a bad way. They just wanted what was best for her.

She saw that when she attempted suicide she had multiple paths around her she could have taken instead. She could have reached out to people around her.

(The Epoch Times)

She saw that the main choice she should have made was to be good to herself, to treasure herself, and treat herself with compassion. “When you believe you are worthy of your own love, you start creating a life around you that is so much better,” she said.

Though it was hard for her to see her mistakes in life, the overall experience was immensely joyful. She didn’t want to return to her body, but was told by God that she had to come back. She would help others understand that there is an afterlife and would help people let go of their fear.

Her body felt like a costume, as she realized it was just something her eternal soul would wear for a relatively short time on Earth.

When she slipped back into her body, she felt so limited after her transcendent experience. Her body felt like a “costume,” and at first, she spoke of herself in the third person, like “Tricia Barker” was just a limited incarnation of her eternal being.

Barker recovered from her back injuries, as she had seen she would during her out-of-body experience. Just one year later, she ran the 10 km race. Not only did it symbolize her recovery after attempted suicide, but also her vitality after a near-death experience that changed her profoundly.

Ways To Clear the Spike Proteins From The Body As Vaccine Injuries Skyrocket

HEALTH VIEWPOINTS

Latest US Data Shows Vaccine Injuries Skyrocketed; How Will We Recover?

BYDR. YUHONG DONG AND HEALTH 1+1 TIMEMAY 28, 2022
At present, the adverse events brought about by the COVID-19 vaccines are getting more and more attention from the public. If vaccination causes injury or damage, how can the body heal itself?

 

Juliana Mastrantonio of New York is an 18-year-old full-time college student and part-time pharmacy technician. Prior to the vaccination, she was in good health and exercised daily. Juliana was infected with COVID-19 in December 2020 and recovered without long COVID symptoms.

Juliana received her first dose of Pfizer vaccine on December 10, 2021 and her second dose on January 2, 2022. Within one week after the second dose, Juliana developed pelvic pain that gradually worsened, and she became hospitalized.

Four days after being discharged from the hospital, she developed other severe symptoms, headaches, and tremors. When she woke up the next morning, she found herself immobile from the waist down, and was paralyzed. And she is currently undergoing rehabilitation.

Juliana previously had no underlying medical condition. However, after the vaccination, she developed this set of symptoms in a short period of time without any other trigger, so it is entirely plausible that there is a link between the vaccination and Juliana’s paralysis.

It may be that the antibodies produced by the body against the spike proteins attacked nerve cells, including the spinal cord, and caused inflammation of the spinal cord. The spinal cord connects and controls all parts of the body, so serious damage to the spinal cord can cause paralysis. The European Medicines Agency has also updated the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine’s product information to include rare spinal disorders as a side effect of the vaccine.

In addition, the COVID-19 vaccine can cause mitochondrial damage and induce cytokine storms that further impair the body’s immune function and lead to autoimmune diseases.

As studies, physician observations, and patient experiences have revealed many times previously, the COVID-19 vaccines, regardless of the technologies used to produce them, may cause autoimmune diseases in several organs of the body if they contain the spike proteins or other components of the virus.

Alarming Data in VAERS 

Recently, controversy regarding the COVID-19 vaccines has been gradually growing.

Under the unique circumstances of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the COVID-19 vaccines have been marketed rapidly and used worldwide without adequate safety testing or certainty regarding their effects on humans. With such a large vaccinated population, it is only natural that adverse events would occur on a massive scale, and the medical and scientific community is increasingly discussing these adverse events publicly.

As of May 13, 2022, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), jointly administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration, had received more than 1.2 million adverse event reports since the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccines.

However, according to estimates published by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the number of adverse events reported by the VAERS was less than 1 percent of the actual number.

As of May 13 2022, OpenVAERS has compiled the data on adverse events from VAERS records, which include more than 28,000 deaths, over 157,000 hospitalizations, over 129,000 cases requiring urgent care, and more than 190,000 cases requiring doctor office visits. All of them meet the definition of a serious adverse event.

VAERS also has 32 years of data on deaths from all types of vaccines worldwide. According to its data, the number of deaths remained steady at a few hundred per year until 2021, when it suddenly spiked to 21,889. And as of May 2022, there had been 6,955 deaths, and the count is still ongoing.

Some may say that as the vaccinated population worldwide is large, so is the number of reported deaths. Nevertheless, the point is that the impact of this global vaccine program on human health as a whole is enormous.

For each adverse event, even if it was reported as a rare percentage (e.g. death rates 0.01 percent, serious adverse events 0.6 percent) in vaccine phase 3 trials, a huge number will be seen by a denominator of a 5 billion vaccinated population (two thirds of of total 7.7 billion).

A more important statistic is the vast majority of vaccine-related deaths that occurred within three days of vaccination, which shows the strength of the association.

People may argue that those people who died have intrinsic mechanisms including chronic diseases or risk factors that put them into a highly risky status to jabs. That is not necessarily wrong. Any disease normally would be a result of interplay of intrinsic factors plus external attacks. However, without adding those jabs, they would not die so early but would enjoy more time to live until they naturally reach their endowed lifespan.

Of these deaths, 65 percent were related to the Pfizer vaccine, which is the most used vaccine; 26 percent were related to Moderna; 9 percent were related to Johnson & Johnson (Janssen vaccine); and the rest were unknown.

In terms of gender distribution, the deceased were predominantly male, with 53 percent (14,758 cases) of the deaths; and 42 percent (11,747 cases) were female.

The most common COVID-19 vaccine related adverse events reported by VAERS:

  • Permanent disability: nerve injury
  • Myocarditis, Pericarditis: cardiac injury
  • Heart attacks: cardiovascular injury
  • Bell’s palsy: facial nerve injury (with unknown etiology)
  • Shingles: dormant virus activated

These adverse events could have been caused by direct damage to the body’s functions, attacks on the immune system, and blood clots caused by damage to blood vessels.

If we have an adverse event after vaccination, what can we do to eliminate the effects of the spike proteins?

Enhancing Autophagy 

There are different strategies to detoxify spike proteins with western medicine from natural sources and Chinese herbal medicine: one is to prevent the attachment of spike protein to the ACE2 receptors (e.g. ivermectin, suramin, catechin, curcumin, Prunella vulgaris extract), the other is to neutralize the downstream toxicity by using N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), etc.

Autophagy & Fasting: All You Need To Know

Another method is to enhance the self-repair mechanism of cells.

The human body has amazing self-cleansing and repair mechanisms. When cells age, become inflamed or produce metabolic waste, instead of resigning themselves to death, our cells will activate their self-cleansing mechanisms. One of the most important of these mechanisms is called autophage (aka autophagy)–which literally means “devouring oneself.” This may sound like a bad thing, but in fact it is beneficial, because what is being devoured is the corrupted materials inside the cells, so this mechanism will make the cells healthier.

The autophagy mechanism was discovered by Japanese cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi, who has found that autophagy is associated with tumors, metabolic diseases, aging, and other life phenomena, and that it can play an important protective role in the human body. For these discoveries, he was awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine.

In 2015, a study jointly published in the authoritative EMBO Journal by 32 scientists from Europe and the United States summarized four important roles of autophagy in human health:

  • Maintaining normal cellular metabolic mechanisms and mitochondrial function;
  • Mitigating DNA damage;
  • Degrading bad proteins;
  • Reducing inflammation.

Theoretically speaking, the body’s autophagy mechanism can help reduce the damage caused by vaccines and spike proteins by cleaning up spike proteins and removing altered genes and harmful viral components.

The phagocytic vesicles in cells identify the mitochondrial fragments that have been damaged by spike proteins and do not function properly after becoming fragments, as well as toxin fragments, harmful proteins, and inflammatory factors.

A phagocytic vesicle would wrap them up and form an autophagosome, which breaks down these components with catabolic enzymes and sorts out those that can be recycled, such as amino acid molecules after proteolysis. The components that cannot be recycled will be broken down into water or electrolytes, which are then excreted from the body.

Therefore, if the body can boost its autophagy mechanisms, this can neutralize or even reverse the injury caused by spike proteins to cells.

How to Enhance the Autophagic Ability of Cells

The human body is an intelligent system, and our cells have many ways to enhance their autophagic ability, one of which is through diet changes.

One way to trigger the cells’ autophagy mechanism is intermittent fasting.

In an intriguing animal experiment published in the journal Autophagy, researchers divided mice into two groups, with one being fed normally and the other fasting for one to two days. Then they observed the autophagosomes in the liver cells of these mice and discovered that

  • only a small amount of autophagosomes could be detected in the hepatocytes of the normally fed mice;
  • there was an increase in autophagosomes in the hepatocytes of mice after 24 hours of fasting;
  • there was a further increase in autophagosomes in the hepatocytes of mice that had fasted for 48 hours.

The researchers also performed quantitative analysis of autophagosomes, by measuring the number, area, and circumference of autophagosomes in each cell and studying the expression of autophagosomes. They discovered that the number, area, and circumference of autophagosomes in mice after 24 hours of fasting increased significantly compared with those in normally fed mice; and after 48 hours of fasting, there was a further increase.

If intermittent fasting can enhance the autophagy of hepatocytes, it can reduce the damage to the liver caused by the vaccine spike proteins.

In addition, the researchers also analyzed the data of autophagosomes in mice brain cells and discovered them similar to those of hepatocytes.

The enhancement of autophagic cells in the brain is also helpful in eliminating adverse events caused by vaccines on the nervous system, such as brain fog.

We do not need complete fasting, as intermittent fasting can have a similar effect.

In addition, fasting is not about eating less or not eating anything, but about “eating the right things.”

As mentioned in the journal Antioxidants, there are organic chemicals called polyphenols in plants that have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties and can have effects similar to autophagy by initiating the process of apoptosis, or programmed cell death, a natural and essential process initiated when cells are too old and need to be eliminated.

The following foods are rich in dietary polyphenols:

  • Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG): from tea leaves
  • Oleuropein: extract of olive leaves
  • Punicalagin: The most abundant polyphenol in pomegranate
  • Apigenin: commonly found in vegetables, fruits, herbs, and chamomile tea
  • Resveratrol: from fresh vegetables and fruits
  • Pterostilbene: a resveratrol derivative
  • Curcumin: found in curry

Therefore, it is recommended that we eat a lot of commonly seen vegetables and fruits in our daily life. In addition to replenishing our levels of vitamin C, this can also supplement many nutrients that enhance our autophagy and the ability to repair ourselves.

We have introduced three ways to relieve spike protein damage, including:

  1. blocking the entry of spike proteins into the cells, by using ivermectin, suramin, catechin, curcumin, and Prunella vulgaris extract;
  2. neutralizing free radicals and antioxidants to reduce the damage caused by spike proteins after they enter the cells, by using NAC (N-acetyl-L-cysteine), Vitamin C, and antioxidants;
  3. enhancing the body’s self-repairing ability to devour toxins by itself

Furthermore, we will introduce another strategy to reduce the damage caused by spike proteins in an upcoming article.

 Healing is done in the time/space portion of the mind/body/spirit complex, is adopted by the form-making or etheric body, and is then given to the space/time physical illusion for use in the activated yellow-ray mind/body/spirit complex. It is the adoption of the configuration which you call health by the etheric body in time/space which is the key to what you call health, not any event which occurs in space/time. In this process you may see the transdimensional aspect of what you call will, for it is the will, the seeking, the desire of the entity which causes the indigo body to use the novel configuration and to reform the body which exists in space/time. This is done in an instant and may be said to operate without regard to time. We may note that in the healing of very young children there is often an apparent healing by the healer in which the young entity has no part. This is never so, for the mind/body/spirit complex in time/space is always capable of willing the distortions it chooses for experience no matter what the apparent age, as you call it, of the entity.

The Advantages of Activating Heart Feelings in the Morning

Taking a few moments to establish a positive emotional environment in the morning is a highly effective practice that adds lift and flow to your day ahead. It sets an energetic tone that allows for deeper connection with your heart’s intuitive promptings. This clears the path for easier decision-making and more harmony in your interactions. Watch the video for a simple, effective daily practice you can add to your morning routine.

Let us remember that we are all one. This is the great learning/teaching. In this unity lies love. This is a great learn/teaching. In this unity lies light. This is the fundamental teaching of all planes of existence in materialization. Unity, love, light, and joy; this is the heart of evolution of the spirit.

5 Tips for Improving Your Spiritual Well-Being

Life offers us endless opportunities to elevate our character, if we have the wish
BY TATIANA DENNING TIMEJUNE 5, 2022

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” — Albert Einstein

In today’s fast-paced world, with so many things to distract us, it’s easy to focus on the outside world and neglect what’s on the inside. In our quest for more, it often seems like we’re trying to fill some sort of void that we can’t quite identify; perhaps the void is a spiritual one, which is why it never seems to be filled by material pursuits or empty distractions.

While spirituality varies among cultures and among individuals, there are some basic truths connecting those with upright intentions, and these principles can guide us in living as good people.

When we work on fostering our spiritual sides, studies show that memory and cognition improve, immunity is boosted, blood pressure improves, things like depression, stress, and anxiety lessen, anger and resentment decrease, and the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions also decreases.

Strengthening our spiritual sides increases our overall levels of happiness, hope, optimism, and internal calm. We may find a deeper meaning and purpose for our lives. An analysis of research studies revealed that those who are more spiritual have stronger marital relationships, commit fewer crimes, have significantly lower rates of substance abuse, perform better in school, and thus have an overall positive impact on those around them and society as a whole.

With so many great benefits, let’s take a look at a few simple things we can do to strengthen our spiritual well-being.

Cultivate Integrity

According to the American Heritage dictionary, integrity is “steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code,” or “the quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness.”

Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. Of course, looking at it from a spiritual perspective, nothing truly goes unseen.#SignsYouWereRaisedRight You do the right thing when NO ONE IS WATCHING!

Integrity requires being honest with oneself and others, self-discipline and willpower, and a commitment to upholding our values and principles, even if it means we lose out as a result. It means not taking the easy way out, and not choosing our self-interest over what’s right.

There is a proverb that says, “There’s no pillow as soft as a clear conscience.” A clean conscience comes only through living a life of integrity, and its importance was well-known to older generations, who were often heard saying, “The reason I sleep well is because I have a clean conscience.”  Unfortunately, the value of integrity has been largely lost in modern times, and in its place, a focus on money and a desire to get ahead have taken its place. Coincidentally, problems sleeping are common.

To live with integrity, it’s important that we identify our values to help determine the kind of person we are and who we want to be. This brightens our moral compass. As we strive to live this way, our character becomes more grounded in goodness, while our negative aspects are weakened and eliminated.

Forgive and Let Go

Forgiveness is an integral part of all upright spiritual teachings. For example, Jesus said, “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.” Luke 6:27–28

When we are treated unkindly or in a way we view as unfair, we may feel justified in our anger or resentment toward another person. But when we carry these things in our hearts, as the saying goes, it’s like drinking poison and thinking it will harm the other person. 

Several years ago, I had a co-worker who regularly disagreed with me. It created a lot of tension, and over time, I developed resentment toward her for being controlling and trying to tell me how to do my job. I found myself increasingly disliking going to work, and even considered looking for another job.

Then one day, a light bulb went off. I thought: “This is my job. I can either go to work and be miserable, or I can go to work and be happy. It’s up to me.”

With this realization, I went to work the next day with a different attitude. I forgave what I viewed as my co-worker’s transgressions, and began to let go of the resentment I’d had. I kept a pleasant demeanor and didn’t let little things get to me, and as a result, I somehow felt lighter. The things that had bothered me now seemed so insignificant that I often didn’t even notice them unless someone pointed them out.

The amazing thing was, as I changed myself, my surroundings changed. My co-worker stopped trying to tell me how to do my job all the time, and the situation between us became harmonious. This unintended consequence of practicing forgiveness and working on changing myself benefitted not just me, but the environment around me.

Act Selflessly

Altruism, or selflessness, is another universal teaching in upright spiritual practices. As Buddha said, “A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

To act with selflessness is to let go of one’s own desires for the benefit of others. It means helping another person out of the goodness of your heart, without any expectation of reward. It is putting yourself in another person’s shoes and having true compassion.

Unfortunately, in today’s society, the opposite isn’t only promoted, but often applauded and even rewarded. But the good news is, with some introspection and awareness, selflessness can be learned and gradually become a part of our daily lives.

Little acts of kindness, such as listening to another person without thinking of what we’re going to say next, bringing a cup of coffee to a coworker, or mowing our elderly neighbor’s lawn, are simple ways we can put others before ourselves.

As we go about our day, it’s a good idea to pause and ask ourselves, “Why am I doing this?” In other words, what’s our true motivation behind our actions? Are we taking our ill friend a bowl of soup because we know how miserable it is to have the flu and want to help her feel better, or because we want to hear we’re such a great friend or what a good cook we are? Examining our thoughts is key.

Helping for the sake of helping, with a pure and genuine heart, benefits others, and inadvertently ourselves as well. Studies have shown that altruistic behaviors lead to more peace of mind, lowered cortisol levels, and even decreased risk of heart disease, to name a few.

Practice Gratitude

In a world where we can have almost anything we want whenever we want it, it’s easy to take things for granted and lose sight of the importance of gratitude.

Recently, an incident occurred when I was teaching my son about being grateful for what he had and not expecting more and more. My husband overheard our conversation and joined in to stress what I was saying. He surprised me when he told our son: “Every day when I wake up, I say a prayer. I don’t ask for anything. I only say ‘thank you,’ even if it’s just for my two arms and legs that allow me to go to work, or for the roof over my head.”

Being grateful for what we have, without desiring or asking for more, even in the face of difficulties and struggles, is most certainly a worthwhile endeavor.

Studies have shown that gratitude can be cultivated. By doing things like keeping a gratitude journal, or reflecting on three things we’re grateful for at the end of every day, we strengthen our gratitude muscle. We can even learn to be grateful for the hard times.

Leonardo da Vinci said: “Obstacles cannot crush me. Every obstacle yields to stern resolve. He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind.” Our difficulties help steel our resolve to achieve our goals and strengthen who we are. And without the hard times, how would we know what we’re capable of?

Look for the Lesson

Not a day goes by that we don’t encounter multiple opportunities to improve ourselves. Everything happens for a reason. While we may not understand why things occur, what we can come to understand is the lesson contained within.

While working with my co-worker, I had another realization: The things that annoyed me about her were actually things that existed in me—she was just a mirror reflecting what was in me. At first, this wasn’t something I even wanted to admit to myself, let alone anyone else, and wondered if I really had such a controlling way about myself.

As I paid attention to my thoughts and behaviors, sure enough, I saw the hard truth: I, too, had my own way of wanting to control things. As I reflected on the situation more later, I discovered that the situation was an opportunity to look at myself and learn some valuable lessons.

 

I also realized that when a certain type of situation kept repeating itself, though it might take different forms, it was trying to teach me a lesson. As I began to watch for patterns in the things that happened in my life, I also learned that if something about another person annoyed me, it was a sure sign that I had that thing in me in some form or another.

Over the years, I’ve seen that my most valuable lessons have actually come out of my most difficult situations. Though I didn’t relish having those painful or hard times, I saw that they did, in fact, serve an important purpose—self-growth. And if I didn’t work on improving that part of myself, the situation would keep recurring in different scenarios.

When my son entered elementary school, I began having regular talks with him that we dubbed “life lessons.” I tried to teach him the importance of being kind to others, no matter how he was treated, to be honest, thoughtful, patient, and to share with others. I also made up “what if” scenarios to get him to think about how he might handle different types of difficult situations, and then we would discuss possible solutions.

One day, when a little boy treated him unkindly in second grade, he came home and told me that he wasn’t mean back to him, and said, “I think his momma must not teach him about life lessons.” When my son did do something wrong, I tried to get him to understand why it was wrong and to think about how he could do better next time.

My hope is that these lessons laid the groundwork for my son to learn how to reflect upon his own actions, see what he could learn from them, and continually strive to be a better person.

In my view, what happens in our lives is meant to teach us to rectify our wrongs and change ourselves for the better by improving our patience, honesty, kindness, empathy, and other good qualities.

In Conclusion

Research has borne out what common sense tells us: Strengthening our spiritual well-being is good for both our mental and physical health. It elevates our moral character, strengthens our relationships, improves our performance in school and at work—and is an essential underpinning of a good society.

As Rumi said: “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” By employing some of these techniques in our everyday lives, we can improve ourselves, and naturally have a positive influence on the world around us.

Is The CIA Involved In School Shootings?

History of the Second Amendment

The Second Amendment provides U.S. citizens the right to bear arms. Ratified in December 1791, the amendment says:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. 

James Madison originally proposed the Second Amendment shortly after the Constitution was officially ratified as a way to provide more power to state militias, which today are considered the National Guard. It was deemed a compromise between Federalists — those who supported the Constitution as it was ratified — and the anti-Federalists — those who supported states having more power. Having just used guns and other arms to ward off the English, the amendment was originally created to give citizens the opportunity to fight back against a tyrannical federal government.

Time to Fight Back; Thousands of Deaths and Adverse Reactions Deleted From VAERS; Mind Heart Coherence

We are living in a time the world has never experienced. The Vaccine was mandated for many, while many of our family and friends voluntarily took the experimental jab. As the truth comes out, people are waking up to the conspiracy of deep state to overthrow the United States government as well as Governments around the world.  It is time to take our countries back. It starts with seeking the truth and passing information to others. While encouraging others, consider our physical  and metaphysical  worlds are inseparable. To help with seeking the truth, use your gift of discernment or intuition. You have that ability, you just have to trust yourself.

With that in mind, We The People,  will take our country and world back. The more we wake up from their slumber, the greater the storm will be.  The first video gives you the tools to fight back. The following videos gives you more information on the experimental jab.

Thousands of Deaths and Adverse Reactions Deleted From VAERS

BY JOSEPH MERCOLA TIMEMAY 21, 2022
Publicly available data from VAERS clearly reveal that these shots are the most dangerous ‘vaccines’ ever created; they account for more injuries and deaths than all previous vaccines from the last three decades combined. Evidence also shows reports have been deleted.

Story at-a-glance

The U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) was created as an early warning system to identify vaccines that may be triggering a higher than expected number of adverse events

Publicly available VAERS data clearly reveal that the COVID shots are the most dangerous “vaccine” ever created, accounting for more injuries and deaths than all previous conventional vaccines combined over the last three decades

Data analyst Albert Benavides has been analyzing VAERS data since the release of these novel shots. According to Benavides, at least 10,000 reports of death or serious injury following COVID “vaccination” have vanished since the rollout of the shots — and they were not duplicate reports, which is a common “explanation” for their removal

About 2% of all COVID jab-related reports are deaths, and about 5% of death-related reports are being deleted

Only the initial VAERS reports are available to the public. Updated reports are only viewable internally. That means we have no way of knowing how many of those who were injured have since died from those injuries. This is a loophole that can make a vaccine appear less deadly than it actually is

The U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) was created as an early warning system to identify vaccines that may be triggering a higher than expected number of adverse events. One of its primary objectives is to:1

“Provide a national safety monitoring system that extends to the entire general population for response to public health emergencies, such as a large-scale pandemic influenza vaccination program.”

It’s far from perfect, but it’s still incredibly useful and does serve its purpose. Publicly available VAERS data clearly reveal that the COVID shots are the most dangerous “vaccine” ever created, accounting for more injuries and deaths than all previous conventional vaccines combined over the last three decades.

But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which jointly run VAERS, continue to insist the shots are “safe and effective,” and that not a single death has been directly attributed to the shot.

Such claims are outlandish in light of the available data, and perhaps they’re starting to realize the pickle they’re in as well, because in recent months, investigators have discovered that VAERS reports are being deleted in ever growing numbers. As noted by Stew Peters of the Stew Peters Show (above):

“VAERS is supposed to simply collect reports filled out by doctors and other medical professionals from around the country — reports of people suffering injuries and illnesses and even death after taking vaccines.

Nobody is supposed to be editing or curating or fact-checking it. It’s supposed just be the reports of doctors for the entire world to see. But now we have evidence that that’s, in fact, not what’s happening at all.”

Who’s Deleting VAERS Reports?

Peters interviews Albert Benavides, an RCM expert, data analyst and auditor, who’s been analyzing VAERS data since the release of these novel shots.2,3 According to Benavides, at least 10,000 reports of death or serious injury following COVID “vaccination” have vanished since the rollout of the shots — and they were not duplicate reports, which is a common “explanation” for their removal.

Benavides cites the case of a young child in Alaska who reportedly died after the jab. That death report is now gone, and there’s no other remaining report that matches it.

VAERS ID 18150964 is another example. This is the case of a 13-year-old girl in Maryland, who died 16 days after her first jab. This report was entered October 25, 2021, and deleted April 15, 2022. VAERS claims it was deleted because it was a duplicate, but there are no 13-year-old girls in Maryland who died, anywhere else in VAERS.

According to Benavides, over the past 30 years, some 4,000 non-COVID reports have been deleted, and of those only a couple of hundred were deaths. For the COVID jab, VAERS is deleting a far higher proportion of severe injuries and deaths. About 2% of all COVID jab-related reports are deaths, and about 5% of death-related reports are being deleted.

The result of this is that the ratio of deaths to other injuries appears lower than it probably is. Overwhelmingly, it’s reports of severe injuries and death that are being deleted, which gives the distinct appearance that they’re trying to hide the true extent of the harm of these shots. Who could possibly be doing this? Benavides insists the direction to delete valid reports must be coming from the very top of the FDA and/or CDC.

If you want to dive deeper into Benavides’ data, you can find his VAERS Analysis Dashboard here. Another resource you’ll want to bookmark is the VAERS Wayback Machine on MedAlerts — a search system specifically for deleted VAERS reports.

Other Factors That Downplay COVID Jab Risks

Benavides also points out that only the initial VAERS reports are available to the public. Updated reports are only viewable internally. What that means is, we have no way of knowing how many of those who were injured have since died from those injuries. This is a loophole that can make a vaccine appear less risky than it actually is.

65% of all COVID related reports have the lowest severity classification, meaning they’re not serious. However, when you actually read the reports, you find heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolisms and other clearly serious injuries. So, many are clearly misclassified.</aside>What’s more, Benavides is finding that they’re routinely misclassifying the event level of severity; 65% of all COVID-related reports have the lowest severity classification, meaning they’re not serious and didn’t require medical intervention or hospitalization.

However, when you actually read the reports, you find heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolisms and other clearly serious injuries. So, many are clearly misclassified, or mis-coded. Benavides has also found 65 reports where the patient died after the COVID shot, but because the box for death is not checked, they are not included in the total death tally.

We also have evidence that VAERS is throttling the release of reports. It can take months before a filed report is actually published, as COVID jab victim Brittany Galvin has discovered.

In January 2022, she was eight months into the reporting process to VAERS and was advised by VAERS staff that it would likely be another six to 12 months before her case would be posted.5 In early June 2021, Peters interviewed her about her injuries and experience with the VAERS process (video below).6

VAERS Analysis Reveals Hundreds of Serious Side Effects

An earlier VAERS data analysis by Benavides, reported by Steve Kirsch in November 2021,7 revealed there were by then already hundreds of serious adverse events associated with the COVID shot that were far more elevated than the admitted risk of myocarditis, identified by the Department of Defense (although that fact was for a time dismissed as “conspiracy theory”).

“The evidence in plain sight shows that they are either lying or incompetent. Or both,” Kirsch wrote.8 “In a … VAERS data analysis performed by our friend Albert Benavides (aka WelcomeTheEagle88), we found hundreds of serious adverse events that were completely missed by the CDC that should have been mentioned in the informed consent document that are given to patients.

And we found over 200 symptoms that occur at a higher relative rate than myocarditis (relative to all previous vaccines over the last 5 years). All together, there were over 4,000 VAERS adverse event codes that were elevated by these vaccines by a factor of 10 or more over baseline that the CDC should have warned people about …

The FDA and CDC have basically been batting .000 in terms of spotting safety signals that have been sitting in plain sight the entire time … The CDC has repeatedly said you can’t ascribe causality to data in VAERS. Not true.

The VAERS data analysis (temporal data, the dose dependency, and the elevated reporting rates compared to baseline) provide ample signal to enable us to show causality on all of these events using the five Bradford-Hill criteria applicable to vaccines.”

Of the hundreds of side effects Benavides identified, neurological, cardiovascular and female reproductive problems topped the list. (You can view and download the data from Kirsch’s article.9) Here are some selected highlights from Kirsch’s comprehensive review of Benavides’ findings:10

High Rates of Post-Jab Myocarditis Confirmed

Getting back to myocarditis (heart inflammation), which is the only side effect the FDA and CDC have really admitted, a recent JAMA study found that:12

“Both first and second doses of mRNA vaccines were associated with increased risk of myocarditis and pericarditis. For individuals receiving 2 doses of the same vaccine, risk of myocarditis was highest among young males (aged 16-24 years) after the second dose.”

Among double-jabbed men (age 16-24), there were four to seven excess myopericarditis events per 100,000 vaccinees in the first 28 days after the second dose of Pfizer’s mRNA shot, and anywhere from nine to 28 excess myopericarditis events per 100,000 after the second dose of Moderna.

According to the authors, “The risk of myocarditis in this large cohort study was highest in young men after the second SARS-CoV-2 vaccine dose” and “this risk should be balanced against the benefits of protecting against severe COVID-19 disease.”

Rheumatologist Reports High Rate of Jab Injuries

While fact checkers are hard at work trying to debunk VAERS data as too unreliable to pay any attention to, doctors and specialists around the world — those brave enough to speak — are reporting absurdly high rates of side effects among their COVID jabbed patients.

One of the latest ones is Dr. Robert Jackson, an award-winning rheumatologist in Missouri. Kirsch recently interviewed Jackson (video above),13 who reports that 40% of his COVID jabbed patients have been injured by the shots; 5% remain unresolved, 5% have developed a new clotting disorder and 12 have died. For comparison, he normally sees only one or two deaths a year.

Of his 5,000 patients, about 3,000 got the shot. That means just over 1 in 300 were killed by the shot. Jackson’s clinical experience matches nicely with data from other rheumatologists, published in the BMJ.14 They report a 37% adverse event rate among jabbed patients; 4.4% of patients also had a flare up of their disease after the jab.

In the interview, Jackson also discusses some of the treatments he’s using on these vaccine injured patients. Interestingly, he’s seen significant improvement using a 30-minute infusion of mesenchymal stem cell derived exosomes.

Non-COVID Excess Deaths Are Exploding

Across the world, and in most U.S. states, we are now seeing excess deaths rates skyrocketing, and it’s not due to COVID. For U.S. data, check out USmortality.com,15 where the excess mortality for each state is listed.

In California, the excess death rate rose from 13.5% in 2020 (38,799 excess deaths) to 18.7% in 2021 (52,278 excess deaths). And, less than five months into 2022, California’s excess mortality has already breached the 20% mark.

For the U.S. as a whole, there were 3,440,546 deaths of all ages for the year 2020. The expected numbers were 3,028,959, so that was an excess of 13.6% (411,587 above expected). In 2021, there were 3,459,496 deaths of all ages, which was 16.4% above expectations. As of mid-April 2022, the excess death rate was already at 14.1%, with 1,041,538 reported deaths of all ages. Among working age Americans, deaths are up 40%, compared to prepandemic levels.16

If the COVID jabs worked, you’d expect excess mortality to drop, yet that’s not what we’re seeing. We’re also not seeing mass death from COVID. The only clear factor that might account for these discrepancies is mass injection with an experimental gene transfer technology.

Cyprus is also reporting elevated all-cause mortality for 2021 (16.5%, perfectly matching that of the U.S.).17 Third and fourth quarter rates are particularly elevated, which corresponds with the rollout of booster shots. Canada, meanwhile, is seeing a shocking 70% excess death rate for ages 0 to 44, compared to 2014 through 2019,18 and U.K. data show COVID-jabbed children, aged 10 to 14, are dying at 28 times the rate of their unvaccinated peers.19,20

I’ve provided other data examples in other articles, and they’re all showing the same trend. The most tragic part of this is that it’s intentional. None of the agencies charged with protecting public health have lived up to their mandate. Instead, they’ve been serving the Great Reset agenda.

Eventually, though, I believe the truth will simply be too overwhelming and obvious to be ignored by the masses. FDA and CDC can’t delete enough reports to make the jabs look safe. People’s personal experiences also trump that of any data set, and now, vaccine injuries are so commonplace, most people know of someone who had a bad reaction, got COVID anyway or died from it. And they can’t scrub that.

Our Negative Expectations Can Create or Worsen an Illness
BY EMMA SUTTIE TIMEMAY 25, 2022

Most people are probably familiar with the placebo effect, but may not be aware of its less popular cousin, and opposite, the nocebo effect. According to the latest research, this mysterious phenomenon is perhaps more prevalent than many people realize, even medical professionals.

Let’s define them both.

The placebo effect occurs when someone is receiving either medication or having a medical procedure and experiences positive results even though the treatment or medication is inert. An example would be a clinical trial studying the effects of a new drug. There is usually a control group of participants given a “placebo,” often a sugar pill, that looks identical to the actual drug but contains no active ingredients.

The placebo effect occurs when the participants taking the sugar pill experience positive results even though the medication they took contained no medicine whatsoever.

The nocebo effect is the exact opposite.

The nocebo effect is when a patient experiences negative effects, symptoms, or side effects of a medication or treatment even though the drug or treatment was inert or contained no active ingredients.

Let’s use another example.

A patient is told she needs medication for her diabetes, and it comes as an injection. The doctor reads her the possible side effects, which include headaches, nausea, and stomach pain. The patient decides to proceed with the injection and afterward reports feeling all the listed side effects—when the injection she received was just water. These negative side effects demonstrate the nocebo effect.

The word nocebo comes from the Latin “nocere,” meaning “to harm.” By contrast, the word placebo comes from the Latin “placere” meaning “to please.”

What Causes the Nocebo Effect?

Apparently, the nocebo effect is prevalent in medicine, but its mechanisms aren’t well understood. Various studies on the subject suggest a number of contributing factors. Some of them are listed below.

Nocebo effects happen due to many factors and vary extensively depending on the individual. This makes trying to pinpoint the exact causes difficult.

The Nocebo Effect in Action

In a 2012 study of the nocebo effect, researchers from the Technical University of Munich in Germany conducted one of the most thorough reviews of the nocebo phenomenon at the time. Researchers took 31 empirical studies involving the nocebo effect and examined their biological mechanisms and the problem they caused for doctors and researchers in clinical practice.

They concluded that, although puzzling, the nocebo effect was surprisingly common and something that should be taken into consideration by medical professionals in their daily practice.

In many of the experiments they studied, the suggestion or expectation of pain elicited significantly more negative responses from participants.

In one study, 50 participants suffering from chronic back pain were given a flexibility test. Half the test subjects were told they might experience some pain beforehand, and the other half weren’t. Afterward, the first group reported significantly more pain than the group that was kept in the dark, despite doing the same test.

Our perceptions may even prove fatal. In one case study, researchers noted one individual that attempted to commit suicide by swallowing 26 pills. Although the pills were only a placebo and unable to harm him even at such high doses, the patient experienced dangerously low blood pressure and needed fluid injections to be stabilized. His physiological reaction was based solely on his belief that he had taken a deadly dose of medication. Interestingly, after the patient was told that the medication was only sugar pills, his symptoms quickly disappeared.

It seems that words, thoughts, and expectations play a more significant role in our health than we may realize.

So how does the medical establishment treat patients effectively while being forthcoming about all the possible side effects they might experience, knowing that this information may cause them to occur?

The Tricky Issue of Informed Consent

This presents medical professionals with a bit of a conundrum because of something called informed consent. Physicians are obligated to inform their patients of all possible outcomes, side effects, and adverse reactions resulting from medications, treatments, and procedures to stay compliant with informed consent laws. The patient must consent to most treatments, having been told about all possible outcomes beforehand.

One way medical personnel can counteract the nocebo effect is by being mindful of how they talk to patients and the way they describe procedures. Reframing and focusing on the positives has been suggested as a way to buffer a possible nocebo effect.

An article from John Hopkins Medicine states that doctors-in-training spend just 12 percent of their time interacting with patients directly. Perhaps more time spent with patients and more time in medical school spent on learning how to communicate with patients effectively could help counteract nocebo effects.

Final Thoughts

It seems the healing process may be more complex than we may realize. Studies of the nocebo effect, and its counterpart the placebo effect, suggest that there are other things at play we don’t fully understand. An individual’s beliefs, expectations, the environment, the medical personnel they interact with, as well as their demeanor and the way the information is presented, all seem to play a role. Although the medical profession has made great strides in understanding how the human body works, we may still have a long way to go to unravel the mysteries of human healing.

‘Knowledge Is Power’: Constitutional Scholar Strives to Educate the Public and Rein in the Federal Government

By Matt McGregor
May 27, 2022 Updated: May 28, 2022

Christin McMasters’ strategy for teaching about the U.S. Constitution is first to establish a foundation by answering why we have a government, and from there, why we have a constitution.

McMasters, also known as The Liberty Belle via her blog, has initiated a North Carolina-based constitutional-advocacy crusade to answer those questions in classes, speaking engagements, and informative articles that can be found on her website: thelibertybellenc.com.

For McMasters, the answer to those questions is simple, but it’s been lost under a rapidly accumulating pile of bureaucratic gobbledygook, doublespeak, and propaganda.

“We created the government to do a job for us, so they’re our employees, and we the people are their employers,” McMasters told The Epoch Times.

But without a job description, those government officials have no reason to do what their employers require of them if the employers themselves aren’t even sure of what the job is.

“The job description specifically tells our government what it can and cannot do,” McMasters said.

And this is where the U.S. Constitution enters the picture, McMasters said.

“It’s huge because, throughout world history, governments have had arbitrary power, which is power that comes from nowhere,” McMasters said. “It’s unconfined and limitless.”

But if government officials have an agreed-upon job description—and both citizens and government officials know their assigned roles—veering off a clear path into the shadow of capricious mandates, restrictions, and even lockdowns isn’t an option for the employers or the employees.

“The Constitution has nothing to do with my feelings, thoughts, or beliefs,” she said. “It has to do with the fact that we don’t want a government that can do whatever it wants. I haven’t found a Democrat or Republican who wants a government with arbitrary power.”

One of her inspirations for starting her initiative, McMasters said, was her observation that many people don’t know why they believe what they say they believe, she said.

Combine that with what she described as “the amount of very effective propaganda that’s being pushed in the academic world,” and students are left with no foundation, she said.

“I can’t blame college students for falling for everything they’re being told because it pulls on all the right emotional strings, and it seems to make sense, but the ‘whys’ are never answered still,” she said. “Many students go into these college environments and fall for everything because they don’t stand for anything.”

‘Why We Should Care’

McMasters, a self-described “millennial constitutionalist” from Charleston, South Carolina, got her doctorate in political science at the University of South Carolina, though she said she’s not the average academic.

“I actually love this country and love liberty and will fight for it at all costs,” she says on her website.

Not wishing to censor herself, McMasters chose not to reenter academia after getting her doctorate, so she teaches at a local community college while networking as The Liberty Belle, she said.

“I’m very passionate about what I do,” she said. “I want to make the Constitution relevant to all students by answering the big questions, like why they should care.”

McMasters doesn’t drape her classes with opinion as many academics tend to do, she said, because what’s most important is what the Constitution says, she said, not what she thinks.

When she speaks on national issues, she addresses them from a “purely constitutional perspective,” she said.

“I have strong feelings about things, but my fundamental goal is to confine the government to one that has to do what it’s told, not whatever it wants,” she said. “As I’ve given presentations throughout North Carolina, I’ve found that many people have genuinely never been taught some of these basic principles of the Constitution, which is why I build that foundation first.”

Getting students to drop their ideological convictions and make educated, objective arguments based not on opinion but around the parameters of the Constitution is rewarding, she said.

Threats to the Constitution

Two of the biggest threats to the U.S. Constitution, McMasters said, are ignorance and dwindling respect.

“In Charles Montesquieu’s ‘The Spirit of Laws,’ Montesquieu writes about the love of the law for a country to last,” she said.

There have been countries that took the U.S. Constitution model for their own but eventually still failed, she said.

“They end up getting overthrown in like ten years, and this has happened time and time again,” she said. “So why on earth has ours lasted so long? There’s this genuine respect people have for the document.”

Though the Constitution is violated “left and right and all over the place,” it’s done so under the pretense that it’s still being followed, she said.

“You’ll notice politicians say, ‘That’s not constitutional,’” she said. “The only reason they feel like they should say that is because they know there’s still a shred of respect in the American public whose favor they could lose if they go too far.”

However, that shred of respect is being slowly whittled down, she said.

This is what concerns McMasters, and why she said she started The Liberty Belle.

“The inherent spirit of the Constitution that exists in our hearts and minds is being killed, and when that happens, the government can do whatever it wants, as publicly as it wants, and nobody’s going to blink,” she said.

In many classrooms, the teaching of critical race theory (CRT)—the Marxist philosophy that sees society as a class struggle between oppressors and the oppressed, specifically labeling white people as the oppressors and all other races as the oppressed—has minimized the U.S. Constitution as an outdated document written by what proponents of CRT have deemed as racists.

To this, McMasters responded, “What’s more outdated: a government that has the arbitrary power of kings, queens, czars, and emperors—which is what we’ve had since the beginning of time—or this so-called outdated document that protects our liberties and keeps us from having an unconfined government?”

The United States, she said, has done something revolutionary and modern in that it confined government.

Just Say No

However, over time citizens have become less informed about the relationship between them and their employees: the government officials.

This has led to a bloated government, McMasters said, and with that, the shadow of arbitrary power has cast itself wider.

Constitutional violations on a federal level have been numerous, which is why she said citizens need to get involved in their local governments to hold them accountable by making them assert themselves within the framework of their own state constitutions.

“States have been able to successfully protect their citizens because local government officials know where the federal government’s power starts and stops,” she said. “The problem now is we have states hooked on federal money.”

When states take federal money, the federal government can then dictate how laws are written, which McMasters said brings the issue back to ignorance.

“Unfortunately, citizens are the ones demanding that states take that money because many of them are uninformed and not realizing that they’re asking the government to provide arbitrary power,” she said. “If we can get people educated, however, so that they’re aware that this isn’t a federal job, then suddenly you’ve changed the game and the states can start saying, ‘No,’ and pulling themselves off that money.”

Education and law enforcement have fallen into these traps, she said, and there are many local police who have been deputized on a federal level.

“Despite the fact that we have multiple federal policing agencies now, there’s technically no policing allowed in the Constitution for the federal government,” she said.

When local law enforcement agencies take federal money, they become subjects to the arbitrary power of the federal government, opening the door for potential ethical violations, including violations of human rights.

“If the federal government tells these agencies to round up all of the unvaccinated people, we need a police force to say, ‘Sorry, that’s not within our power, and it’s not within yours,’” McMasters said. “But they have to know they can just say no.”

This is why McMasters said she’s willing to bring her educational political consulting to all local agencies such as law enforcement and grassroots organizations, because she said local citizens need to know when the federal government is exceeding its boundaries, a historically dangerous practice that leads to local entities becoming subjects of a federal rule.

For McMasters, it’s not just a cliché when she says, “Knowledge is literally power.”

Musk Says Twitter Deal on Hold Over Spam Bots

By Tom Ozimek
May 13, 2022 Updated: May 13, 2022

Billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk said that the deal to buy Twitter is “temporarily on hold” until detailed information comes to light that backs Twitter’s claim that bots or fake accounts make up fewer than 5 percent of users on the platform.

“Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5 percent of users,” Musk wrote in a tweet.

In his missive, Musk linked to a Reuters report from early May stating that Twitter had estimated in a filing that false or spam accounts represented fewer than 5 percent of its monetizable daily active users during the first quarter.

Twitter said in the April 28 filing (pdf) that “there are a number of false or spam accounts in existence on our platform.”

“We have performed an internal review of a sample of accounts and estimate that the average of false or spam accounts during the first quarter of 2022 represented fewer than 5 percent of our mDAU [monetizable daily active users] during the quarter,” the company added.

Twitter’s disclosure came days after Musk said one of his priorities would be to remove “spam bots” from the platform, which he has offered to buy for around $44 billion.

The Epoch Times has reached out to Twitter for comment.

Musk’s announcement was met with a mixed response by Twitter users, with economist Peter Schiff seeing it as proof that Musk “never actually intended to buy Twitter” and that he was “bluffing the entire time,” while trader Sven Henrich, who has been critical of fake accounts on the platform, gave Musk’s message a thumbs up, saying, “due diligence is always worthwhile.”

‘Authenticate All Real Humans’

Musk has said that, if his bid to buy Twitter is successful, he intends to authenticate all real humans on the platform.

“If our twitter bid succeeds, we will defeat the spam bots or die trying,” Musk said in an April 21 tweet. He followed that message up with a pledge to “authenticate all real humans.”

Spam bots on Twitter are automated accounts that can take actions like real humans, such as sending out tweets, following other users, as well as liking and retweeting other users’ posts. Such accounts can be programmed to try and drive traffic to a product or service as part of a commercial endeavor or spread content as part of a social or political influence operation.

While Twitter allows some bots to operate on its platform as long as they are labeled as automated accounts, Twitter does not allow spam bots and has policies in place to try and eliminate them.

Permissible bots can be used for benign purposes like broadcasting information about adverse weather events or emergencies. Malicious spam bots, on the other hand, have been used to spread content containing malware or subjecting users to other scams.

‘Definitely Their Enemy’

Musk’s plans to reform Twitter include trying to clean up the platform of spam bots. In an April 25 statement, Musk spoke of “enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans.”

“If someone is operating a bot and troll army, then I am definitely their enemy,” Musk said at a Met Gala in early May.

Some prominent Twitter users have backed Musk’s effort to cleanse the platform of spam bots.

“You have hit the nail squarely in the head with these tweets,” wrote Chief Investment Officer at Hayman Capital Management, Kyle Bass, in a tweet commenting on Musk’s pledge to tackle the spam bot problem.

“The fact that spam bots (Chinese, Russian, etc) overwhelm real conversations on Twitter degrades the platform and is designed to spread propaganda into the West. It’s time to demand authentication and delete bots,” Bass added.

While reining in spam bots is sure to be hailed by users concerned about their malicious or fraudulent activity, a tougher crackdown could have an adverse impact on Twitter’s total user count.

Twitter had 229 million users who were served advertising in the first quarter of 2022.

‘Inclusive Arena for Free Speech’

Musk has said his aim in seeking to buy Twitter is to take the company private and transform it into an “inclusive arena for free speech.”

The takeover attempt is not about making money, Musk has insisted, but to affect a number of changes to the platform and reduce the “civilizational risk” to freedom and democracy from what Musk has described as Twitter’s excessive and opaque restrictions on expression.

Besides seeking to crack down on spam bots, Musk has vowed to make the algorithm open source to bolster transparency, while looking to shift the content moderation policies towards erring on the side of more free speech.

Musk has also spoken out against permanent suspensions on the platform, suggesting he would lift Twitter’s ban on former President Donald Trump if his bid to buy Twitter and take it private succeeds.

“Permanent bans should be extremely rare and really reserved for accounts that are bots, or scam, spam accounts,” Musk said at an event hosted by the Financial Times.

“I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake,” he added.

Questioner: Is there then, from the point of view of an individual who wishes to follow the service-to-others path, anything of importance other than disciplines of personality, knowledge of self, and strengthening of will?
Ra: I am Ra. This is technique. This is not the heart. Let us examine the heart of evolution.
Let us remember that we are all one. This is the great learning/teaching. In this unity lies love. This is a great learn/teaching. In this unity lies light. This is the fundamental teaching of all planes of existence in materialization. Unity, love, light, and joy; this is the heart of evolution of the spirit.
The second-ranking lessons are learn/taught in meditation and in service. At some point the mind/body/spirit complex is so smoothly activated and balanced by these central thoughts or distortions that the techniques you have mentioned become quite significant.
