Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is back to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Joe Biden: ‘America Was an Idea’ “America was an idea.” Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted that statement Wednesday evening, describing the country he wishes to lead — in the past tense. The full text of the tweet reads: “America was an idea. We’ve never lived up to it but we’ve never walked away from it before.” Biden included a link to a podcast interview with Brené Brown, and an audio clip in which he repeated the same message — “America was an idea”: America was an idea, an idea. “We hold these truths to be self-evident.” We’ve never lived up to it, but we’ve never walked away from it before, and I just think we have to be more honest. Let our kids know, as we raise them, what actually did happen. Acknowledge our mistakes, so we don’t repeat them. Biden’s words were a re-hash of his stump speech — with some important modifications. For two years, Biden has cited the Declaration of Independence on the campaign trail, arguing that while ours has never been a truly equal society, we have never given up trying to make it so.
Joe Biden Flip-Flops Again: My Coronavirus Plan ‘Starts with a Mask Mandate Nationwide’ Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is back to calling for a nationwide mask mandate despite previously admitting that the Constitution would prevent him from enforcing it. Speaking to WISN-ABC on Tuesday, Biden criticized President Donald Trump’s response to the Chinese coronavirus. “Take responsibility. This president says it’s not his responsibility. The federal government’s role is [to] have a national response to tackle this national pandemic. But Donald Trump took no responsibility, failed and continues to fail to do that,” Biden said, accusing Trump of “downplaying” the virus and not having a plan. “I put my plan out in March. You can read it all online, go to JoeBiden.com and it starts with a mask mandate nationwide,” Biden told the outlet. Biden has continually flip-flopped on promoting a nationwide mask mandate as a federal response to the Chinese coronavirus, calling for a nationwide mask mandate on several occasions over recent months. In June, when asked about using federal leverage to issue the mandate, Biden said, “Yes, I would from an executive standpoint, yes, I would.” However, he backtracked in September, proclaiming himself as a Constitutionalist and adding, “You can’t do things the Constitution doesn’t allow you the power to do.” Days later, he told Arizona’s CBS 5 that there is a “constitutional issue whether the federal government can issue such a mandate.”
Facebook and Twitter Cross a Line Far More Dangerous Than What They Censor The New York Post is one of the country’s oldest and largest newspapers. Founded in 1801 by Alexander Hamilton, only three U.S. newspapers are more widely circulated. Ever since it was purchased in 1976 by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, it has been known — like most Murdoch-owned papers — for right-wing tabloid sensationalism, albeit one that has some real reporters and editors and is capable of reliable journalism. On Wednesday morning, the paper published on its cover what it heralded as a “blockbuster” scoop: “smoking gun” evidence, in its words, in the form of emails purportedly showing that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, traded on his father’s position by securing favors from the then-vice president to benefit the Ukranian energy company Burisma, which paid the supremely unqualified Hunter $50,000 each month to sit on its Board. While the Biden campaign denies that any such meetings or favors ever occurred, neither the campaign nor Hunter, at least as of now, has denied the authenticity of the emails. The Post’s hyping of the story as some cataclysmic bombshell was overblown. While these emails, if authenticated, provide some new details and corroboration, the broad outlines of this story have long been known: Hunter was paid a very large monthly sum by Burisma at the same time that his father was quite active in using the force of the U.S. Government to influence Ukraine’s internal affairs.
Google, prepare to be cowed In what will surely go down in Big Tech history as an “about time” moment for censor-weary Americans, the U.S. Justice Department filed a suit against Google, accusing the online giant of antitrust violations. Google, prepare to be cowed. At least a little bit. Even citizens who aren’t especially political have a point of order to make in this case, and it’s one that goes like this: Quit clamping speech! “Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation,” said Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, in a statement. “Google and its fellow Big Tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information. And Google in particular has gathered and maintained that power through illegal means.” Specifically, DOJ is alleging that Google has outright and purposely stifled competition by juggling its online search returns to favor the company’s own special winners and picks. Google dismisses those allegations as frivolous. “Today’s lawsuit,” a company spokesperson said to Fox News, “is deeply flawed. People use Google because they choose to — not because they’re forced to or because they can’t find alternatives.” Google has a point.
Millennials and democracy: Young adults are the most disillusioned generation ‘in living memory’ No matter what country you’re in, you’ll usually see young people leading the way at political rallies. While it may seem like their enthusiasm in the democratic process is high, a new report finds most millennials are losing faith in democracy. When it comes to global politics, researchers says the millennial generation is the most disillusioned group in memory and their dissatisfaction is only getting worse as they age. The Centre for the Future of Democracy at the University of Cambridge reveals 18- to 34-year-olds in nearly every democratic nation show the steepest declines in satisfaction with democracy. Equally troubling, millennials in advanced democracies seem to be fueling the political divide in many countries. Researchers find young adults are the most likely group to think people with opposing viewpoints are morally flawed. Among western democracies, over 40 percent of millennials say you can “tell if a person is good or bad if you know their politics.” The report comes from the largest global survey on democratic legitimacy ever conducted. Cambridge researchers partnered with the HUMAN Surveys Project to examine data from nearly five million respondents in over 160 countries. The surveys measured the level of satisfaction each person had with their country’s political system between 1973 and 2020.
Supplement Doomsday Coming? The FDA could be completing policies that will wreak havoc on the supplement industry. They must be opposed. Action Alert! The FDA is asking for comments on its procedures for submitting new dietary ingredient (NDI) notifications. This NDI notification system (think of it as “new supplement” notification) threatens the entire future of the supplement industry and must be opposed. We’ve covered the major problems with this system in the past. According to the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), any dietary supplement introduced to the market in the US after 1994 is considered “new” (an NDI) and the manufacturer must notify the FDA at least seventy-five days in advance of plans to market the product. The problem is that the FDA is using this part of the law to create a drug-like pre-approval system for supplements that experts have estimated will result in the elimination of tens of thousands of supplements from the market. Part of the issue is that the FDA is adopting a broad definition of an NDI and thus expanding the number of supplements that will be subject to NDI notification procedures. For example, supplements that have not been “chemically altered” are not required to comply with these procedures; but the FDA is adopting an expansive definition of what it means to be “chemically altered” such that almost all modern supplements would probably qualify and thus be subject to NDI requirements. It appears that this is quite intentional. The aim is to destroy supplement innovation in the hope that this will eventually destroy the supplement industry.

Will covid-19 vaccines save lives? Current trials aren’t designed to tell us The world has bet the farm on vaccines as the solution to the pandemic, but the trials are not focused on answering the questions many might assume they are. Peter Doshi reports As phase III trials of covid-19 vaccines reach their target enrolments, officials have been trying to project calm. The US coronavirus czar Anthony Fauci and the Food and Drug Administration leadership have offered public assurances that established procedures will be followed. Only a “safe and effective” vaccine will be approved, they say, and nine vaccine manufacturers issued a rare joint statement pledging not to prematurely seek regulatory review. But what will it mean exactly when a vaccine is declared “effective”? To the public this seems fairly obvious. “The primary goal of a covid-19 vaccine is to keep people from getting very sick and dying,” a National Public Radio broadcast said bluntly. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, said, “Ideally, you want an antiviral vaccine to do two things . . . first, reduce the likelihood you will get severely ill and go to the hospital, and two, prevent infection and therefore interrupt disease transmission.”
Questions of The Day!
I have tried many many times to access “limbic arc”,from your web site-no matter how many times I try all I ever get is a blank white page. If I use you tube I can get some information-if I use google to access limbic arc once again all I get is a blank white screen. If I click on the web address provided by you tube no luck. Is there a phone number or another way I can reach limbic arc?
Hi I have bought your book and read the relevant chapter on the silver aloe protocol.
Do I need to take a binder as well ? You mention NAC and Selenium on page 69 to remove the bad guys but I am not sure if I take them at the same time?
I take the silver and aloe and the probiotics at night do I need to take other supplements you mentioned on page 90/91 or are the 3 I just mentioned applicable for this protocol only?
Medical mystery! Doctors find new organ that lives behind our noses After centuries of practicing medicine, you’d think scientists would know every part of the human body, right? Researchers in the Netherlands say they’ve actually found a new organ behind the nose which seems to be an unknown set of salivary glands. Their study finds this could be a major breakthrough in preventing certain side-effects of cancer treatment. Researchers at the Netherlands Cancer Institute were studying a new type of scan when they uncovered something in the back of the nasopharynx, behind the nasal cavity. This new type of cancer scan highlights salivary glands so doctors can spare these organs from radiation exposure. Oncologist Wouter Vogel and oral and maxillofacial surgeon Matthijs Valstar, who investigate the effects of cancer radiation on the head and neck, say they weren’t expecting anything to light up in this region. “People have three sets of large salivary glands, but not there,” Vogel explains in a media release. “As far as we knew, the only salivary or mucous glands in the nasopharynx are microscopically small, and up to 1,000 are evenly spread out throughout the mucosa. So, imagine our surprise when we found these.”
