Why Corporate Media Won't Tell You What's Being Done to the Amazon

Dylan Charles, Editor
Waking Times

Some 90% of the world’s media is controlled by a mere six corporations. The business model of this industry is dependent on advertising revenue, which means that the content they produce must serve well the bottom lines of advertisers, or more significantly, content cannot be of detriment to the profits of corporate advertisers.

This is the reason why so much of the most important news in our times goes un-noticed and under-reported on, most notably environmental news, for if our attention was sufficiently directed to these issues then we would certainly change our attitudes, priorities and behaviors, potentially harming the income streams of the biggest environmental destroyers on the planet, and the biggest advertisers.

The Proof That the Sugar Industry Manipulated Science to Get You Hooked

Dr. Mercola, Guest

For years, we’ve been warned about the dangers of eating too much fat or salt, but health authorities and media have been relatively silent about sugar, despite rising obesity rates and failing health in just about every area that has adopted a Western processed food diet.

The sad truth is, there’s copious amounts of research, spanning many decades, showing that excess sugar damages your health in many ways, yet the sugar industry managed to bury the evidence and cover it up with faux science that supports its own claims, which is that sugar has little or nothing to do with weight gain and ill health.

To this day, they want you to continue believing the outdated myth that saturated fat is to blame instead of sugar, and the calories-in, calories-out myth. Fortunately, the truth is finally starting to see the light of day, and many brave souls have stepped up to the plate to expose and dismantle the orchestrated deception.

Pioneering Grandma Building Tiny Sustainable Homes Out of Hemp

Vic Bishop, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The DEA considers hemp to be a dangerous substance and it’s still classified as a schedule I drug, alongside heroin and ecstasy, even though the plant contains almost no THC and has no psychoactive effects. Many believe this classification is the result of the oil industry’s grip on the legislative process in America, because hemp is one of the most viable alternatives to plastics, fuel and other building materials, in fact, it used to be an important domestically produced crop, and it even contains extraordinary health benefits.

“Hemp is the only plant that can feed you, house you, clothe you and heal you.” [Source]

Our Right to Informed Consent Being Usurped - Will You Resist?

Alex Pietrowski, Staff
Waking Times

Through case-law, as well as by the 4th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, it is well established as a legal precedent in the United States that an individual has the right to informed consent of any invasive medical procedure.

“No right is more sacred, or is more carefully guarded by the common law, than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law…To compel any one, and especially a woman, to lay bare the body, or to submit it to the touch of a stranger, without lawful authority, is an indignity, an assault, and a trespass…”  ~Union Pacific Railway Co. v. Botsford (1891)

“Mandating an invasive procedure in order to give informed consent is not a proper role for the state. No person should be directed to undergo an invasive procedure by the state, without their consent, as a precondition to another medical procedure.” ~Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell (2012)

“We are dreaming a symbolic world, only briefly waking to what is real.” ~Arthur Deikman, M.D.

“He not busy being born, is busy dying.” ~Bob Dylan

Something is not quite right…you feel it…you may have experienced this feeling, this nagging, for a long time. So you most probably just try to ignore it and hope that it goes away; but sooner or later the persistent nagging finally brings an idea to your mind – there’s something very odd about the way the world is. Maybe you feel like you are at the cinema watching a film and yet you sense there must be something wrong about the film you are seeing. The images are all there, but there’s a feeling that something is out of sequence, or the frames are running out of ‘normal’ time. However, after a while you get used to the style of the film, and your senses adjust to its rhythm and you lose the sense of strangeness and you get pulled into the show and you go along with the ride…

This Photo is the Perfect Metaphor for How the Resistance Will be Won

Dylan Charles, Editor
Waking Times

A photo taken in Santiago, Chile freezes an intense moment between a riot policeman and a protester, capturing the compelling power dynamics at play right in the world at large and revealing how these dynamics will ultimately be defeated.

Worldwide resistance to the destructive paradigm of state/corporate dominion over all life on planet earth is taking many forms, simultaneously happening on many battlefields both macro and micro, both outside and inside of the self.

Many of us understand how power can be and is derived from violence, and how thoroughly the present paradigm has seized upon this script to relentlessly control us. But do we understand the nature of our own power? Do we understand how violence can be overcome without brute force?

Why The DEA and HHS Should Be Abolished

Dr. Mercola, Guest
Waking Times

The use of marijuana for medical purposes is now legal in 25 states and, as of this writing, two additional states (Arkansas and Florida) have pending legislation or ballot measures to legalize medical marijuana.1

Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Colorado and the District of Columbia have also legalized recreational use of marijuana for adults, while 16 states have decriminalized certain marijuana possession offenses.2

According to estimates, between 85 and 95 percent of Americans are in favor of medical cannabis, and nearly 60 percent support complete legalization of marijuana. And, contrary to what you might think, doctors overwhelmingly agree.

The Insane Things the 1% is Doing With the Wealth They're Stealing From Us

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

For decades, independent researchers and real investigative journalists like Bob Chapman warned us about the financial bubble that was being created by the world’s political and financial elite. It was intentional, another planned cycle of boom and bust made possible by central banking institutions in corroboration with corrupt legislators and regulators, designed to create a debt bubble that would ultimately make it (supposedly) necessary for governments to bail out ‘too big to fail’ banks. Public money was then to be given away to the most complicit private corporations, destroying the middle-class economy and widening the enormous gap between the uber-rich and the rest of us.

CDC's Power Grab: Quarantine and Vaccination for Suspicion of Infection

Sayer Ji, Green Med Info
via Waking Times

You’ve had this dry cough for a couple of days but are otherwise feeling ready for your much awaited annual ski trip to Utah. On the security line, an officer signals for you to come with him. Not knowing why you’re being selected out of the crowd, you follow to learn that you meet criteria for quarantine. Sound like science fiction?

In what appears to be an unprecedented power grab, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) just issued a proposed amendment to its domestic and foreign quarantine regulations giving itself the power to legally apprehend, detain (isolate or quarantine), and treat (including vaccinate) anyone simply for suspicion of being infected by a communicable agent.

According to a recent Harvard study, 16.5 million Americans have detectable levels of at least one kind of polyfluoroalkyl or perfluoroalkyl chemical (PFASs) in their drinking water. About 6 million Americans are drinking water that contains PFAS at or above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) safety level.1,2,3,4
