“Other than the few rare individuals who saw through the hysteria from day one, we have all rescued ourselves from the clutches of fear by following a cookie crumb trail of our own questions back to sanity. COVID hysteria is built on a foundation of sand. Once someone begins to have doubts, the official narrative practically unravels under its own weight.
“But the True Believers are doing everything they can to insulate themselves from anything that conflicts with the propaganda being peddled on the 6 o'clock news. Doubt and uncertainty are threatening and lead to uncomfortable questions about those in whom they've placed their trust. So, they are working hard to protect their information bubble, which provides them with an illusion of safety. We must work to plant seeds of doubt inside the bubble they are trying so hard to defend.”

The Defender reports:
“A study published Sept. 30, in the pro-vaccine peer-reviewed European Journal of Epidemiology found the most fully vaccinated nations had the highest number of new COVID cases, based on the researchers’ analysis of emerging data during a seven-day period in September, covering 68 countries and almost 3,000 U.S. counties.
The authors said the sole reliance on vaccination as a primary strategy to mitigate COVID-19 and its adverse consequences “needs to be re-examined,” especially considering the Delta (B.1.617.2) variant and the likelihood of future variants.”

Social media has emerged as a primary source of news and other information for Americans, with 53% of adults stating that they “often” or “sometimes” get their news from social media. Facebook is the most popular among the social media sites, with 36% of Americans choosing it as a regular source of news, according to a survey conducted by Pew Research Center.
Big Tech, including Facebook, however, is actively manipulating information by censoring and silencing whatever it deems to be “misinformation.” The internet monopolies use “fact checkers” for this purpose. Facebook has partnered with FactCheck.org, which claims “to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.”

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we have written extensively about the true origins, nature, prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
We’ve exposed the lies and the corruption behind the “official story” of the so-called “natural” origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which still has such a strong grip on the media and on our policymakers.
We’ve also exposed the scandal of “gain-of-function” research that weaponizes viruses and bacteria—research that is funded by the military, Big Pharma, Bill Gates and government agencies in the U.S., China and other nations.
In the midst of an unprecedented global disaster and government failure to solve the COVID-19 crisis, it’s time for global civil society to take matters into our own hands and stop the madness.
Through our global citizens’ petition we are calling for an updating and international ratification of the original Chemical and Biological Warfare Convention that was designed to ban chemical and biological bioweapons.
We need you to sign our petition and send it to everyone you know to sign, too.
To find out more about our plans for a global mass-based lobbying campaign to stop “gain-of-function” research:

“A new study by Environmental Working Group scientists finds almost 42,000 potential sources of the toxic 'forever chemicals' known as PFAS that could be polluting surface water or drinking water in communities across the U.S… PFAS pollution affects all communities, from the affluent to those near the fence lines of industrial facilities.”

Law firm Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman announced a $39.5 million settlement to resolve a Monsanto Roundup class action litigation centered on the herbicide’s misleading, essentially false, label. Bayer is also required to reword the label, which states that glyphosate (Roundup’s key ingredient) “targets an enzyme found in plants but not in people or pets.”

The Progressive Farmer writes:
“Both the temperature and tempers are running hot this summer, as herbicide injury surfaces across the Midwest and South once again. Dicamba remains the primary source of complaints… The situation has driven Harry Stine, the normally reserved founder of Stine Seed, a longstanding independent seed company based in Adel, Iowa, to speak out forcefully and publicly about the perennial issue of dicamba injury in agriculture.
"We keep thinking that we'll wake up from this nightmare and it will be over, but it just seems to go on and on, and I'm sorry, but we can't tolerate this any longer."

OCA columnist Nate Doromal describes what it’s like to come down with a mild case of COVID-19 and what he did over a two-week period to alleviate symptoms and eventually fully recover.
As Nate explains:
“I want to paint an honest picture of what getting COVID-19 was like. There are cases of people who got it but are largely asymptomatic or have symptoms akin to a cold. In contrast, I got decently sick - overall still considered mild COVID but akin to some of the tougher flu cases I have experienced. It took me a full two weeks until I could say I was recovered, which is pretty typical for mild cases.
“While getting COVID-19 was no walk in the park, too often, the media paints too fearful a picture of it, emphasizing dying people on ventilators and then long-haul COVID. The truth is that over one hundred million Americans, including myself, have recovered from COVID-19.”

The most popular podcaster in America, Joe Rogan, who actually has a much larger and diverse (i.e. working class) audience than CNN, presses CNN’s medical expert, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on why CNN has deliberately lied about the highly effective, yet severely maligned drug, Ivermectin, used in dozens of countries and increasingly in the U.S. as part of an effective protocol for prevention and treatment for COVID-19, claiming that Rogan and others are taking a dangerous “horse dewormer.”

In this updated article on Glyphosate and COVID, Dr. Mercola and Stephanie Seneff tell us how Glyphosate may play an important role in cases of severe COVID-19. If you've accumulated a lot of glyphosate in your tissues, your immune cells will be impaired, making it difficult to clear the virus.
To avoid glyphosate exposure, the most important strategy is to eat certified organic foods whenever possible, and eat/drink more sulfur-containing foods, organic grass fed milk and butter, pure water, animal fats, and probiotic foods
To help mitigate the toxic effects of glyphosate, you can take an inexpensive glycine supplement.
As Mercola and Seneff point out:
“For years, glyphosate was assumed safe and claims of toxicity were vehemently denied. But in recent years, studies on glyphosate have been demonstrating toxicity even at very low levels… glyphosate exposure may be a key player in cases of severe COVID-19.”

“Bayer/Monsanto suffered another in a long string of setbacks in its battle to grow genetically modified (GM) corn in Mexico when the country’s highest court on October 13 refused to overturn a precautionary injunction restricting the cultivation of GM corn. In its unanimous decision, the court agreed with the citizen petitioners who sought the injunction in 2013 that cultivation of GM corn poses a credible threat to Mexico’s rich store of native corn biodiversity through uncontrolled cross-pollination.
The Demanda Colectiva, the citizen group that brought the original lawsuit, in a statement said that the unanimous decision strongly supports “the collective rights of peasant and indigenous communities and of the consumers of corn.”

Monsanto/Bayer is in some very hot water.
Their glyphosate-based herbicide, Roundup, is possibly connected with lowered immunity toward COVID-19, and is also at the forefront of a $39.5 million lawsuit. Their dicamba herbicide is wreaking health havoc in the Midwest and South, and Mexico has just upheld a ban on their GMO corn.
Things are not going Monsanto’s way. And that’s because of supporters like you.
Every day, we receive donations from supporters who are fed up with companies like Monsanto/Bayer. When donations come in to us, they go toward protecting our health, our environment, and holding major corporations accountable. Just like Monsanto/Bayer.
