My show last Saturday, September 29th, 2012, had four Guests whom I consider to be Messengers of Truth in a world of misinformation, propaganda, and constant jingles, riddles, and flashing time stealers.
Steve McIntosh, Author of “Evolution’s Purporse: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins,” made several incredible points in our interview.
First, the “Big Bang” theory is not a theory. It is a fact. However, the difference with the factual beginnings of the Universe is that it is compatible with Spirituality. There was an Entity [God] before the Universe came into being.
Life and the universe are not purposeless accidents, as the original ‘scientific’ theory hypothesized.
Secondly, the Environmental movement must evolve in order to achieve its goals.
Steve says that as global warming increases, Environmentalists need to recognize how anti-establishment stridency is discouraging to the mainstream whose support they need to be effective in combating the proximate causes of climate change.
The solution to bringing this Environmental movement into the “mainstream” for immediate, full-scale community [and corporate] action requires a cultural shift that better integrates the Environmental movement with everyday society, and thereby creating greater solidarity within American [and world] culture overall.
I would like to add that I do see this happening as more people start to understand the direct correlation between their consumer and daily choices and the ecological damage that occurs as a result of these choices. I have seen an evolution in the past few years that is exciting to be a part of [albeit it very slow in some parts of the USA].
Third, Economic dominance is not the only way to provide global leadership.
Steve McIntosh encourages Americans to embrace their country’s changing responsibilities.
America’s role in the world is inevitably changing as the globalized economy increasingly empowers other countries, such as China, India and the Middle East.
As our world changes, Americans can prevent the decline of America’s global leadership by evolving their definition of leadership, and thereby evolving their culture into the next stage of historical development.
Through this cultural evolution America can demonstrate a successful form of sustainability, post-material society that provides deeper forms of fulfillment than the rewards offered by consumerism and status.
Fourth, Can artificial intelligence ever truly replicate the human self, resulting in self-conscious machines? “Trans-humanists” subscribe to the theory that self-replicating computers will soon undertake their own evolution, but Steve McIntosh explains how this premise disregards the nature of the self and what it means to be conscious.
Many of Steve’s points are incredibly rich in complexity, and really requires all of us to start thinking. This book stretched me intellectually. This is a “must read” for every person who seeks knowledge and personal empowerment.

I have talked on several shows about the horrifying, diabolical dangers of Pesticides.
ALL chemical pesticides are chemical warfare weapons that are re-packaged as “home use” pesticides. Don’t be fooled when it comes to the misleading, even fraudulent marketing and advertising when it comes to the supposed safety of chemicals used for pesticides. All of these DNA damaging substances came directly out of Nazi Germany. They are, indeed, chemical biological weapons, and they do hurt people, animals, plants, groundwater, food sources, and all life.
My Guest for this segment, Josh Vincent of the Northwest Center for Alternative to Pesticides, explained the many autoimmune disorders that are directly related to exposure to chemical pesticides that are sprayed routinely around residential homes, in our food agriculture, in our skies [for the misguided and downright stupid "West Nile" spraying], and in gardening.
The pathetic apathy that has overcome our elected officials, and then literally blanketed the consciousness of the Taxpayer is certainly something to be alarmed about. We need to stand up to these powerful Chemical lobbies that don’t care about your future, your health, your food quality, your children’s health, or your pets.
And by the way, those supposed “flea and tick” toxic chemicals that get put into the shoulder blades of our animals are ALSO deadly killers. DO NOT USE THEM! Instead, put Garlic powder into your pets food along with Grapefruit Seed Extract into their water, and just give them a nice shampoo with non-toxic, essential oil shampoos that are now readily available to keep your pets flea free.
When you can trace the DDT exposure all the way to the North Pole, and into the blubber of marine mammals and Polar Bears… you know that these chemicals are persistent and do not ‘fade’ over time. They simply travel throughout the eco-system causing damage to everything they contaminate.
We cannot afford to fall asleep on this issue. This is a big, big issue to overcome and to combat since the Chemical companies are relying on both the ignorance and trust of society to get away with murder, literally.
Check out this informative website and please take action for yourself and for your community: www.pesticide.org
Hemp is a highly nutritious “Superfood” with all Essential Fatty Acids [3,6,9] and protein that can literally feed the world because it is both easy and ecologically friendly to grow. It needs very little water, and actually remineralizes the ground soil as it grows in a process called “phytomerediation.”
Hemp can be used for housing, fuel [replacing petrochemicals], replace nylon, clothing, medicine, PAPER, replaces toxic chemical plastics, food, beauty treatments, making automobiles, airplanes, boats, agricultural feed, natural antiseptics, natural pest control …. and the list goes on endlessly.
So, why would the United States turn their backs on this opportunity to help re-charge both the Environment AND the Economy in one shot by re-establishing a PRO-Hemp agenda?
Why is it currently illegal to grow or cultivate Hemp in the United States? Why are we, as Americans, sending our money to China, India, Canada, Pakistan and other countries in order to IMPORT Hemp seeds, Hemp oil products, Hemp clothing, etc?
The Forestry and Cotton industries are behind the demise of this amazing crop from the United States. They were intimidated and obviously concerned enough to lobby Congress to prohibit Hemp because it was the same family as “marijuana.”
However, Hemp is not a hallucinogenic plant and cannot be smoked for the mind-altering affects that Marijuana offers. Although Hemp is from the Cannabis species, its THC content is negligible and cannot be used for ‘getting high’ as Opponents of Hemp argue in order to keep their special interests as the tax-guzzling crops in America’s farmlands.
The positive attributes of Hemp also include cleaning the air, preventing soil erosion since its roots grow deep, and one acre of Hemp plants produces more agricultural products than 2 acres of Cotton or 4 acres of trees! Hemp trees/plants also clean the air as they release a ton of Oxygen into the air as they grow heartily and quickly in just about any climate.
Thanks to Eric ‘the red’ Hughes of Chi Hemp Industries for his magnificent research over the past few decades, and for your voice in this very important matter for the Ecology and for the future of the Earth.
Check out www.hempoil.ca and get some yummy Hemp products and educate yourself. Let’s take back our future by restoring common sense to both our politics and to the taxpayer/consumer.
Entire families are broken apart… babies are run over cliffs or run to exhaustion and die… mothers are separated from their babies and the cries are unthinkable and heart wrenching… the Stallions are abused and castrated with crude means… the ones that are ‘too wild’ are shot dead…. and too many other wretched and totally un-American abuse of our National Heritage.
The story of our Wild Horses and the ILLEGAL Round-ups overseen by Ken Salazar of the much-corrupted Department of Interior and the ‘subsidiary’ Bureau of Land Management [BLM] has increased, surprisingly, under the Obama Administration. Sadly, it is just one more lie that our current President made when he was campaigning in 2008 and appealing to many Environmentalists like me.
When he appointed Ken Salazar as Secretary of the Department of the Interior, I had a foreboding feeling that nothing good was going to come from this very unhealthy appointment to the Cabinet to the President. This was four years ago, and it got worse with every year in terms of our Environment and our Wildlife.
And, indeed, my sense in 2008 was right. Under Mr. Salazar, we have these illegal Round-ups that kill, disable, and terrorize innocent animals, and then we saw the worst oil tragedy in the history of the world take place in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Thugs that declare a war of Terror are doing it at the bequest of the Oil and Cattle industries.
This is exactly WHY you, as a Consumer, should NEVER buy any beef from just any store under just any name [or McDonald's or any other fast food chain-- the food is NOT REALLY CHEAP! IT HAS A COST UNIMAGINABLE TO YOU, THE TAXPAYER]… you should ONLY buy Local, Organic, Humane, Sustainable, Grass Fed, and small farmed. Every time you ignore your power as a Consumer to create the change you really wish to see in this world, you are denying innocent living beings like our Wild Horses and our Wolves and all other Wildlife the right to live freely… simply because you are inadvertently supporting blood-industries like the big Agribusinesses that lobby Congress to have their way on OUR public, taxpayer lands!
Better yet, go Vegetarian. You’ll be Alkalinizing your body, and naturally healing your body. You’ll also be supporting the Environment in the right way by your lifestyle choices. Remember, all animal products create an ACIDIC body, which is the breeding ground for disease.
The point to my conversation with Suzanne Roy of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign was to both raise awareness to the Consumer and to hopefully inspire people to take Action for our beautiful remaining Wildlife, and for the ecological balance of our last remaining open spaces.
Please take a look at this amazing web site and give your support to save our Wild Horses and Burros from the horrors of Slaughter. They need us.
Thanks for listening. This was an incredible show, and is available in the “Archives” section of this blog.
Candida. Most “Conventional” or “American trained” Physicians don’t know a thing about this ferocious killer, and will even adamantly deny its existence when confronted.
Every major disease you can think of…. from Allergies, Chronic Fatigue, Learning Disabilities, ADD/ADHD, Weight Gain… to Diabetes and Cancer…. the proximate cause that all of these dis-eases spawn from is Candida.
My conversation with Dr. Jeffrey McCombs on Saturday, September 22nd, 2012 unveils the truth behind this killer that almost every human today suffers from. What causes Candida to turn into a deadly Fungus within the digestive system are several assaults to the immune system:
#2.) Pharmaceutical Drugs
#3.) Birth Control Pills
#4.) Processed/Genetically Modified “Frankenstein” food
#5.) Processed White Sugar and White Wheat [denatured] Flour
#8.) Heavy Metals [found in Silver Dental Fillings, Toxic Lipsticks, Processed Foods, Pesticides, Hair Color, Pollution]
Take the time to understand the underlying reasons for most diseases today.
The good news is that you can turn this around and clean your body of this killer! You don’t need to spend a lot of money going from one bad, clueless doctor to another…. you just need to know the truth and then take action to heal your body NATURALLY.
Sadly, our beloved Pets are now suffering from Candida overgrowth for all of the same reasons. The high rates of Cancer and other autoimmune dis-eases in our family pets is now staggering, and clearly, the corrupted medical system that enslaves humans has now wrapped its tentacles around the Veterinarian industry.
Living Consciously starts with knowledge and then making honorable choices that will both save your life and save the planet.

Where are our pollinating bees going? What is causing the die-offs?
The answer is simple and the resolution should be just as simple, but the Politics that encumber the resolutions to being enacted are unbelievably complex.
On Conscious Lifestyles on September 15, 2012, my first Guest for the day was Bee Keeper and Educator Raymond DuBois.
He told my audience about the necessity of Integrated Crop Management and how maintaining a respectful balance of the indigenous environment will bring higher, more healthy yields of food crops…. and protect the NATIVE Bees to the geographical area.
However, this is the OPPOSITE of what our American Taxes are supporting! The Bee die-offs are a result of a poor understanding of how to properly produce food without Chemical Pesticides, Chemical/petroleum based Fertilizers, and the horrendous “clear cutting” and bulldozing of the natural, indigenous environment of the agribusiness practice of “Mono Crop” production.
This practice of removing and thereby destroying the entire environment to have thousands of acres of ONE crop [such as Corn, Soy, etc.] is destroying the native Bee populations.
Add onto this diabolical practice the usage of pesticides and fertilizers that KILL our natural Bees and other pollinators, and you have massive die-offs and a critical tipping point in our Environment that is now threatening food crops and our future.
Why would the EPA ignore this obvious raping of our Eco-system? Are they NOT “The ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY?” The obvious question is Why they are not living up to the title of their very own name. Politics, pay-offs, and Lobbying by large Agribusinesses and Chemical Fertilizer/Chemical Warfare companies is a huge percentage of the answer.
This is certainly no time to be a passive tax payer. Apathy is something that the very Chemical Fertilizers and Pesticides CAUSE in the human brain, by the way! These very dangerous Chemicals kill brain cells, and cause immune dysfunction and endocrine/hormone harm.
The urgent need for the Consumer to take back the quality of food cannot be over-emphasized.
Write, email, call and be a voice to your local, elected Politicians to outright DEMAND that our taxes be funneled into Organic, Sustainable, Integrated Crop Production that respects both the Environment and our much-needed Pollinators!
Without our Bees, we have no future. No kidding here. It really is time for Action.
Check out Raymond DuBois’s Web Site www.beelove.org
Support your LOCAL, Organic, SMALL and Humane Farms. You can internet search for your local Community Supported Agriculture organizations. There are many that will deliver to your town, and even to your front door weekly! Stop supporting ALL large-scale food manufacturers and put your efforts into healing your body with natural, sustainably grown and harvested food. Food can be your medicine, and it is the only thing that can truly heal your body.
The second half of my show broadcast on Saturday, September 15th explored more detail on the horrifying topic of Vaccines in general, but the “Gardasil” vaccine that is now marketed for BOTH girls and boys ages 9-26.
The carnage this toxic vaccine has left behind is nothing short of Genocide of our next generation. The over-vaccinating of our children with extremely toxic [never proven "safe"] witches brew of Formaldehyde, Aluminum, Mercury, unknown live viruses, other dangerous adjuvants like Squalane…. is it any wonder we have ADHD, Autism, Learning disabilities and behavior issues of ALL kinds, and an array of Autoimmune dis-eases?
I highly suggest that all of my blog readers and radio audience around the world take the steps to educate themselves, and ultimately ARM themselves against the falsified, fraudulent messages that are both subliminally and overtly sent to the Consumer daily.
The buzz of FEAR tactics that are expertly utilized to gain a firm CONTROL over your behavior that makes you a PASSIVE Consumer [sucker] for these wretched vaccines is part of the Propaganda that is part of the big-Pharmaceutical/Government collusion to keep you sick, and in need of more drugs, therapy, other toxic treatments, etc.
Check out Leslie Carol Botha’s website at HolyHormones.com and learn, each day, something new about your body, and how intricately balanced it is and certainly deserves to be treated with natural, healing respect.
Tags: A Conversation With Green Building Expert David Johnston, Green Building, Sustainable Home Building Practices
The Insulated Concrete Forms [ICF] and Structural Insulated Panels [SIP] and Straw Bale building materials are strong, forever-lasting, sustainable methods of building that creates healthier homes that are better insulated, sound-proof, and eco-friendly to live in.
Why has America been so slow in adopting these incredibly fast, easy forms of building?
Our old growth forests are disappearing. “Stick frame” building is a post-war “cheapie” style of building that is totally unsustainable. Douglas Fir Forests are being destroyed for this heinous building method that really needs to be outlawed in order to re-direct our building methods to ones that are both more durable and sustainable.
The indiscriminate clear-cutting of short-sighted and greedy lumber companies along with the foolish behavior of our bribed Elected Officials has put our air quality, and the future of all life on the brink.
Did you know that these egregious Lumber companies have lobbied Congress to have YOUR Federal Land “clear cut” for their own profits? Did you also know that these Lumber companies are allowed to walk into the Forest with Guns and ammunition and kill off any wildlife that happen to be grazing or living their lives in the very Forest that your tax dollars are supposed to be protecting?
Clear cutting kills birds, deer, wolves, baby animals of all kinds, and it kills our air quality. The forests are our “Lungs” of the Earth, and we cannot have Oxygen without them.
Wood is not something that should be creating the shell of a home. We need to be using better materials that don’t mold, catch fire, or create havoc on the Earth’s last remaining Forests.
ICF’s and SIP’s are the answer. They are faster to build and the incredible beauty of a Green Built home is unmistakable. The FEELING you get when you are inside a Green built home is also unmistakable. You feel at peace, happy, and you can breathe without taking in fumes from off gassing toxic materials used in most homes by uninspired and uneducated contractors.
My Guest on this weeks show for August 18, 2012 was Author and Educator David Johnston. He is one of America’s top Green Building experts and has written four books that are easy to read and a delight to learn from. Green living is both fun and easy once you know where to get the information you need to create a sustainable, beautiful home and community.
You can also get all of the manufacturers of Green Products [literally from "A" to "Z"] from a think tank called “Building Green” based in Vermont. They publish online Guide called the “Green Spec” Directory, and this is a MUST HAVE Guide on where to buy Green Building Products, pricing, etc. Check them out and join them at www.buildinggreen.com
David made many great points in our conversation this week on HOW to Green Build, and certainly on how to locate and hire an honorable, knowledgeable and competent Green Contractor.
Don’t waste your time with people who are not educated on Sustainable living or building methods. This will only lead to an uphill climb for you, the homeowner, and your dollars are best spent with the good people who have the foresight and motivation to build cleaner, sustainable, healthier homes for their communities.
Children are highly susceptible to off-gassing of toxins. Pregnant women are, too. The elderly, and anyone who is under stress or immune compromised. People who think they are healthy can be struck with an auto-immune disease that seems to come from “nowhere” after being exposed daily to toxic building materials. Allergies, to ADD/ADHD, to learning difficulties, to fatigue and the numerous other modern dis-eases that way too many people suffer from are all able to be traced back to toxins INSIDE the home [and not to mention the ones you cannot control the minute you step outside.]
Natural Clay Plaster walls are brilliant. They come in all kinds of colors, and will release “Negative Ions” into the air, creating a healthier indoor environment. Negative Ions are cleansing and very healing to the body. It is exactly what is released in a Thunder Storm and Rain Storm. It feels good to just be around when you are in a home that has used natural paints, clay plaster, milk paint, clay paints, and natural glues/adhesives.
There really is no excuse for not seeking out such amazing ways of cleaning up the environment.
Starting at home is what I have preached on my show for quite some time. When you start to clean up your home by the consumer choices you make, you will be motivated and even passionate about cleaning up the Environment in which you live.
August 11th’s show was a much needed re-visiting of the May 26th Show on Water.
1.) Our resources for clean drinking/living water are disappearing [from chemical contamination, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, petroleum/gas exploration and extrapolation, household chemical products, body care products that all get washed down the drain or seeped into our groundwater and then into our lakes, streams, oceans].
2.) How can we protect our remaining water supply?
3.) What can you do now as an educated Consumer to obtain clean drinking water and be part of the answer to restoring our water supply?
My interview with Winston Kao from May 26th is worth revisiting.
Check out his website at www.gobeyondorganic.com
Always remember that a White Lab Coat is a COSTUME. It was developed as a method to soothe patients nearly 100 years ago with the feeling of purity and life that the color white was thought to bring in the patients mind.
However, there is evidence that many patients don’t feel so relaxed around someone with a White Coat. In fact, many people experience elevated blood pressure and worry just seeing a person approach them in such a costume.
The same feelings are exhibited by your family pets. And when you are not around [when you drop them off at the Vets and think they are safe] the unthinkable could happen.
My conversation on August 4th, 2012 with Pet Advocate Julie Catalano demonstrates to my audience how clearly urgent this matter really is in our world. It hardly ever gets exposed in the “mainstream” but it is still a huge issue. “Vet Abuse” has touched many of us, and even some people who simply don’t realize that their pet was killed or suffered injuries from a person they thought they could trust.
Our beloved Siamese cat, “Mina,” was horribly killed by a ‘holistic’ and even ‘famous’ Vets office…. and they ILLEGALLY charged my credit card on file [without my consent] for the $895 bill afterwards… sneakily, they waited about a month or so to do it.
Wow. I thought we could trust a Vet who wrote a book, gets himself on Television, Radio interviews, etc.
The Smith Ridge Veterinary Center in South Salem, NY, run by Dr. Marty Goldstein really caused the biggest anguish, shock, and unthinkable pain and suffering to our 13 year old child who lost his beloved best friend on August 4, 2010 to egregious negligence. A totally irresponsible female Vet named Dr. Jaqueline Ruskin, was charged with Second Degree Negligence by the New York State Board.
Totally horrifying. The long fight to get the charges off of my card are a whole secondary insult to injury. I won’t bore you with these details, but the nasty “office manager” [who is so fat and wretched she should not be working in a "Holistic" Vets office or any medical establishment whatsoever] fought with all she had and even lied to American Express to keep the charges on my card! Can you imagine such a thing after killing someone’s cat?
This office negligently ripped open Mina’s Trachea when they were installing an intubation tube into her throat. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT? They did not practice one ounce of correct emergency measures to get air into her lungs. The New York State Disciplinary Department told me this after examining her X-Rays and files.
Smith Ridge Vet Office played mind games, and even tried to blame our Cat for their mistake! This is a true sign of Sociopathic and Deceptive behavior. Truly Dangerous.
This terrible behavior is certainly not acceptable. But it is an occurrence that happens daily somewhere in America.
Now really is the time to fight back as Consumers to protect our Pets. They deserve to be worth more than “property” and the bad Veterinarians should be subjected to the same scrutiny and legal action that a typical bad human Doctor would have to face.
Listen to the show in the Archives, and contact Julie Catalano at www.vetabusenetwork.com if you have ever suspected foul play with a Vet.
My second Guest was the very knowledgeable Medical Journalist, Sherri Kane.
Sherri has been reporting on what is now termed “Bad Science” for a few years now. She has uncovered, along with many other respected Journalists, the misinformation that is being bombarded upon the gullible American consumer when it comes to Vaccines, Chemicals, Dangerous Pharmaceuticals [that stay on the market way too long as the FDA deliberately drags its feet before removing such dangerous drugs], and everything you can imagine that is deliberately burdened upon you as an innocent consumer, whether you realize it or not.
Sherri’s message was to do your own research into natural healing. Autoimmune dis-ease is on the rise from vaccine “excitotoxins” and brain damaging neurotoxins, along with petroleum and warfare chemicals that masquerade as “Pesticides” or “Garden” helpers, etc., and bad, de-natured, GMO food.
I believe in Integrative care. Sure, technology is fantastic when needed, but you need to become well versed in the healing miracles of Nutrition, Herbs, Homeopathy, and other exciting ways to clean your body so you won’t fall prey to dis-ease.
I believe that we could really have world peace [no kidding here] if we could start to employ the common sense of utilizing God’s Garden that is so clearly spelled out for us in both The Torah and The Bible.
It’s time to protect this Garden from mass destruction by some really bad forces that aim to profiteer from keeping people sick, destroying our water supply, our air supply, our food supply, and our future.
“How?” is the question. First, do your own research into natural gardening, plant care, lawn care, home cleaning products, and even innocent things like Deodorant have ALUMINUM in them and get right into your blood stream and intoxicate your body! Read labels, and be a voice to demand that chemicals be taken out of our body care products, baby products, and our food.
This is a good start. You will be a whole lot healthier to fight back and start the revolution to demand cars and other machinery that run on water or even cooking oil rather than something that kills millions of people over wars, exhaust, fumes, and contamination.
My Guest, Winston Kao, of www.gobeyondorganic.com gave a ton of information to the Audience listening on Saturday, and now you can hear the show on podcast in the Archives section of this blog.
Swimming in Pesticides: Chlorine in pools is an unthinkable toxic equation. No other developed nation on Earth allows this blood poisoning toxin into pools.
Ozone is the answer to a clean pool without the toxins. Winston also told us about Hydrogen Peroxide as another alternative to toxic Chlorine, which is also used all over Europe and the rest of the world.
“Salt Water” pools are also not healthy, as they are misleadingly promoted as safe as Ocean water, but they are not. Check out Winston’s web site at www.gobeyondorganic.com to find out more.
What is Real Esate doing in the “Obamacare” bill?
and WHY are ALL Congresspeople, Senators, The President, and all Cabinet Members and other Government Regime Bureaucrats AND THEIR FAMILIES completely EXEMPT from Obamacare forever?
Are we now a Marie Antoinette Serfdom?
What about setting us up for a Dictatorship, one [giant] step at a time?
Why is the IRS in charge of what has been sold to the mass media as a “Health Care” Bill? Why would a financial tax bureaucracy be in charge of Health care? Hmmmmmmmmmm.
So many things don’t make sense. And everyone needs to wake up before this Identity/personhood takeover is complete.
Mr. Obama has never had a real job. Never had to work in the real business arena. He has always been a Government Bureaucrat. He believes in Big Government, and he enjoys being in the “Government Elite” where he is protected, and his family is protected.
Did you know that if you sold your house in 2013, if Obamacare is not repealed and dismantled, you will owe the Big Brother Government 3.8% from the sale of your house?
This makes sense to anyone who believes in Socialist regimes where the Serfs work and work and work and work… to pay taxes. The Government Elites conveniently exempt themselves from this as they pocket money from this unfair imbalance of power.
Look up “Codex Alimentarius” on any search engine. Educate yourself. This was signed into Law by Mr. Obama in a very covert way back in January 2012. This essentially takes ALL Nutritional Supplements AWAY from the public and, if enforced, could wipe them OFF the shelves of every Whole Foods, Health Food Store, Internet retailer, etc.
This is one more step to setting up a “Sick” society that is under a Regime, and too weakened to fight back.
Be an educated voter. Mr. Obama is trying to distract everyone with all of his “Social” issues he brings up. Granted, many of these issues ARE important, such as Gay rights. However, if you look at the history of Mr. Obama’s speeches from the past, he was AGAINST Gay marriage just a few years ago!
This guy is trying to throw everything, including the kitchen sink, in the way of his very dark and disreputable past [and present].
I just uncover the facts and bring them to my listeners. I covet my Freedom, and I am not going to live in a Serfdom, Dictatorship, Socialist regime.
Stand up now.

Raj Patel’s book, “Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle For The World Food System” is an eye-opening expose’ on the corruption behind the agricultural practices in both the USA and around the world.
The most greed emanates from the same players: the big “Agri-businesses” that lobby the US Congress to have their way with tax subsidies and then abuse the privilege by creating factory farms, intimidation of small [Organic] Farmers around the world, and severely limiting the food choices of the honest Consumer.
There are dozens of varieties of corn, for instance, but the American market is given a mere one or two at the Grocery store. Additionally, most corn is grown with very dangerous pesticides that poisons the soil, air, waterways and human health.
Pesticides and sludge from factory farms kills the important microorganisms that create fertile soil– so we have dead soil intoxicated with increasing rounds of chemical fertilizer toxins just to get something to grow… and then the Consumer pays with their health.
The circle of deception is far and wide reaching. Where does it end? Clearly, our elected officials talk a good game about “family” and “healthcare” and other such meaningless chatter just to get elected… but they have proven unreliable for the restoration of food integrity and even its safety for consumption.
The impoverished Farmers, leading to increasing Farmer suicides around the world, are directly the result of behemoth Agri-business intimidation, unlawful practices, deception, and even manipulative legal maneuvering in order to wipe out the culturally diverse food choices that are so important for the survival of entire cultural identities along with, of course, the health of a country’s people and micro-economies ["Main Street"] that are the real backbone of any civilization.
Raj Patel’s book is a tell-all that certainly opened my eyes, and I believe is one of the many voices today that can start a groundswell of protest that is so greatly needed if we are to take back our food system and thus, our true health…. and really, what else is there in life if you don’t have your health?
Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle For the World Food System
Dr. Grayson makes the incredible point of how your mind and words alone can affect your wellbeing. He writes about an experiment that took place at a University where 4 identical plants were placed in identical rooms, with the same light sources, and given the exact same amount of water. Students were told to go into each room, daily, and speak sweet, encouraging sentiments to one plant, then to the second plant play classical music, then the third plant they were told to yell obscenities, speak harshly and negatively, and finally, the fourth plant, they were told to play acid rock to the plant only.
The first two plants that were given encouraging words, and loving energy thrived and grew. The last two plants withered and died, despite the attention that was given to give them adequate food/water/sunlight.
What does this tell us about the connection between self-talk, your environment, your exposure to either positive or to negative words/energy/people?
There is no question that there is a direct connection between your health, how well you heal, and the environment/words/energy that you are exposed to.
This fascinating book explains Dr. Grayson’s practice in healing with his patients and how all of us can choose the easy daily practices that allow our bodies to thrive.
I certainly choose to thrive and to live.
But how many of us have been exposed to negative environments or to people who simply manipulated their way into our lives… and stayed way longer than we should have ever allowed?
I now have a true consciousness on this topic after reading Dr. Grayson’s book. I always instinctively knew that someone’s energy was positive or negative, but I never really gave myself the permission to truly listen to this important message.
It is odd how the Western medical system has been so corrupted by the idea of “flat earth” science that they have completely disregarded the positive or negative energies that directly influence the outcome of your body’s healing abilities.
We are designed as SPIRITUAL living Beings [ALL of us! Including the plant kingdom]. Listen to your body, listen to your intuition, and pay attention to energies that are powerful forces on this Earth.
