The Brownstone Institute reports on what appears to be an admission at the Davos, Switzerland world elite gathering recently by vaccine profiteer Bill Gates that the experimental COVID “vaccines” don’t work to stop transmission and that vaccine passports are not viable. “In the course of a 56-minute panel discussion the vaccine pusher [Gates] extraordinaire admitted (starting at the 18:22 mark) that the COVID vaccines do not block infection and that the duration of whatever protection they bring to the table is extremely short… He later talked (starting at 51:00 mark) of the absurdity of implementing any COVID passport program—and one can logically deduce any other measure to segregate the vaccinated from the unvaccinated—when the injections have shown no ability to do the least that one should expect from a vaccine: prevent infection and transmission.These admissions violently kick the stool out from under the arguments made in favor of the more assaultive and damaging COVID ‘containment measures’ taken in the past two years, many of which are still being pursued with pitiless vigor by public officials, CEOs, and educational ‘leaders’ all around the world.Are we to believe that Bill Gates had a sudden impulse to undermine all that he used his billions to mercilessly promote over the last two years? And that he was giving all those currently carrying out those plans permission to stand down?It’s a nice thought. But I don’t believe it to be the case.No. Bill was simply engaging in one of the more tried and true techniques of elite information management, the limited hangout, or what I prefer to call a drive to ‘save the frame’ of an argument that is quickly taking on water.Since Bill and many of the people he has paired up with to force the experimental and often harmful vaccines upon the world, effectively own or have donated untold amounts of money to many of the world’s more important media outlets, he knew beforehand that he did not have to worry much about his words being widely circulated.And so it was. Only relatively small independent news gatherers took any note of what he said. He was speaking to the fellow true believers and providing them with a rhetorical model for handling the loss of faith some among their ranks are having in the face of the vaccines’ abject failure.The key to understanding the frame game here is the clause Gates uttered right before the ‘but’ with which he introduced his truthful words about the ‘vaccines’ pitiful infection-blocking capabilities and short duration of effectiveness: ‘The vaccines have saved millions of lives.’Learn More About Gates’ Talk at Davos
Vandana Shiva writes:
“Fully artificial food is an increasingly popular trend focused on developing a new line of synthetically produced, ultra-processed food products by using recent advances in synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, and biotechnology. These new products seek to imitate and replace animal products, food additives, and expensive, rare, or socially conflictive ingredients (such as palm oil). Biotech companies and agribusiness giants are seeing the opportunity to move into this promising market of ‘green’ consumption and hence these products are marketed to a new generation of environmentally conscious consumers who are growing critical of the grim realities of industrial food production. As a result, meatless burgers and sausages, as well as imitations of cheese, dairy products, seafood, and others, have begun to flood the market, being found anywhere from fast food chains to local grocery stores.Although these products market themselves as ‘eco-friendly’, ‘healthy’, and ‘sustainable’, they are no such thing as they do little to truly address the root problems of industrial agriculture and its environmental, and health consequences. Consequences that can be largely blamed on the same circle of businessmen who today finance the development of this biotech industry. These products instead represent the next generation of ultra-processed junk foods that work to further entrench industrial agriculture models due to their direct dependence on globalized commodity chains, agrochemicals, GMOs, monocultures, and even conventional animal production. In other words, synthetic foods are quickly becoming a next means to consolidate even more power and profit into the hands of a few food giants without facing the implications of ecological devastation, worsening human health, and exacerbated climate change…”

In last week’s Organic Bytes, I wrote about the importance of constantly seeking out today’s positive solutions or best practices (food and farming, land use, energy, politics) if we wish to motivate and inspire grassroots allies or potential allies to take regenerative action in a time of profound crisis. It’s not enough to simply tell the truth in order to effect change, our truth-telling must connect up with people’s most passionate concerns.
A second rule for Regenerators as I lay out in my 2020 book Grassroots Rising, is to “connect the dots,” to understand and start off with the most pressing or important issues for an individual, constituency, or community and link these concerns to the action, strategy, or campaign we are trying to get them to understand and take action on.As I point out in Chapter 2: “In addition to highlighting positive solutions, it is important to keep in mind that people’s situations and perspectives are different. We all have different passions or priorities. One size or one approach does not fit all. Therefore, we need to integrate our motivating or Regeneration messages with the specific issues and concerns that are most important to grassroots constituencies, and then lay out, in everyday language, a strategy that makes people understand that we can actually solve the problems they care about the most, while also solving a host of other pressing problems at the same time. Only by starting from where people are at, and then connecting the dots, can we capture the attention and imagination of a critical mass of the global grassroots and get them to start thinking about how they can participate in our new Regeneration Movement and alternative economy.Objective and subjective conditions for change are different in every country in the world, and to some extent differ as well in the sub-regions and local communities of these 195 countries. Everyday people everywhere, including the most impoverished and vulnerable communities, have their burning issues as well as their secondary issues, and an inherent desire to alleviate and, if possible, solve the problems that are pressing down on them, in many cases threatening their very survival. In the activist community, major focus areas, in most cases reflecting the concerns of everyday people, include inflation and the high cost of living, freedom of choice and constitutional liberties, the climate crisis, environmental pollution, health, social justice, jobs and economic justice, peace, and democracy. Unfortunately, campaigners, both on the local and national/international levels, often work in isolation from other sectors, each in their own separate silos. This perpetuates tunnel vision in the body politic, parochial or sectarian attitudes, political polarization, and an overall weakness in global civil society.”Read More From Chapter 2 of Grassroots Rising, “Rules for Regenerators”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:
“The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a bid by biotech giant Bayer to end thousands of lawsuits alleging its Roundup weedkiller causes cancer, likely costing the company billions of dollars in settlements.The decision is another key defeat for Bayer. Together, the setbacks are expected to eliminate a legal standstill in unresolved cases, according to plaintiffs’ lawyers. Bayer now essentially has two choices, they say: Go to trial to fight more cases, or reach additional out-of-court settlements.‘Everything has kind of fallen apart on Bayer,’ said Jim Onder, an attorney from the St. Louis-based Onder Law Firm. ‘They’re kind of at the end of the rope.’Onder represents just under 20,000 plaintiffs in Roundup cases — about half of the unresolved caseload nationwide, he said.Bayer said it ‘respectfully disagrees’ with the court’s decision and that the company is ‘fully prepared to manage the litigation risk associated with potential future claims in the U.S.’"

From the lies and damn lies department. Tessa Lena covers the latest, likely engineered pathogen, Monkeypox, designed to keep us all in a panic, rolling up our sleeves, and obeying the latest mandates:
"They have the nerve to even say that the demand [for the Monkeypox vaccine] exceeds the supply. I mean yeah, the past two years have shown to our generation that with enough terroristic messaging and attacking people on every sensory front (see this torture manual), you can temporarily disable the innate self-preservation instincts in very intelligent people by creating an emotional ‘cytokine storm’ that floods the gates of rational thinking and makes people act against their interests… but even so, at this point, nobody cares for the stupid moneypox. (I think I am going to just use that word.)By the way, there have been shady gain-of-function activities around this disease, and it is entirely possible that this moneypox now is not the same as the traditional monkeypox. But if that is the case, why take a cure from the very people who gave you the disease?At this point, I don’t have a formed opinion about this moneypox business (a double-pun) other than that the campaign is driven by an effort to not let go of the minds and bodies of the citizens who have gotten tired of the, umm, COVID-pox."

Even though USDA Organic standards prohibit the spreading of toxic sewage sludge on certified organic farms, something OCA and the organic community fought hard for from 1997-2002, it is routine practice for America’s “conventional” (chemical-intensive, energy-intensive, GMO, factory-style) farmers to allow sewage sludge to be sprayed on their fields as a low-cost or no-cost “fertilizer.” But as our fellow activists in the Alliance for Natural Health point out, we’re not just talking about human and animal excrement on the fields of non-organic farms, but deadly PFAS “Forever Chemicals” as well:
“Your food and drinking water could be contaminated with PFAS ‘forever chemicals,’ at levels that are hundreds of times higher than what is considered safe, but the EPA is too busy looking out for industry to care.PFAS contamination threatens the integrity of our food supply and is upending the lives of farmers. This is the latest outrage in what is quickly becoming a national crisis in which PFAS ‘forever’ chemicals, linked to a variety of diseases, are polluting our waterways and our food—and regulators have just admitted that these chemicals are more dangerous than previously thought. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) seems determined to protect industry rather than enact meaningful standards to protect us from these dangerous chemicals. This has to stop.Our food is contaminated with PFAS via the use of biosolids on farmland. Biosolids are a euphemism for sewage sludge, municipal sewage that has been processed to obtain clean water, leaving behind a concentrated sludge full of contaminants. This used to be dumped into the ocean until the practice was banned in 1988 because it was too toxic.Biosolids are contaminated extensively with PFAS and are used extensively in agriculture. In fact, some estimate that as many as 5 percent of all crop fields could be using biosolids contaminated with PFAS. Low levels of PFAS have already been detected in vegetables, honey, dairy products, eggs, various meat products, and both bottled and tap water.Even low-level exposures are dangerous because PFAS accumulate and persist in the body. In fact, the EPA just released new health advisories regarding PFAS in drinking water. The EPA previously suggested PFOA, a common PFAS chemical, be limited to 70 parts per trillion in drinking water; the new suggestion is 0.004 parts per trillion. We use the term ‘suggestion’ because these levels are non-enforceable, and the EPA is still allowing companies to dump these chemicals in our water.”
