Inner Terrain vs. Outer Terrain: Which Do You Emphasize for Good Health?

Your Inner Terrain

defines you and your state of health. Your microbiome, which consists of bacterial cells that outnumber your human cells 10:1, is the key to your health. This is why natural health and medical experts have declared that your gut is like your second brain. However, the last thing that Big Gov and Big Pharma want you to understand is how powerful you are. Stories of a bad bacterium or virulent virus are far more sensational, sexy and scary – far more of an easy sell – than the plain old truth that you have to work to consciously foster and create a healthy inner terrain to ward off disease. What money can Big Pharma make by telling you to carefully take more micronutrients (e.g. minerals, vitamins, enzymes, cofactors, etc.) to build strength? It’s far better for them if you believe the world is full of scary micro-creatures and diseases, and that there’s nothing you can do other than take their products – vaccines, synthetic pills, radiation and more. Yes, there is truth in both perspectives, but if you only focus on the outer terrain and germ theory, and minimize or forget about the inner terrain, you are playing right into their hands. The whole debate of inner terrain vs. outer terrain goes back at least to the days of Louis Pasteur and Antoine Bechamp in 19th century France, so let’s take a closer look at what happened there to understand where we are now.

 Do you know the importance of the inner terrain vs. outer terrain for your health?                                                           Does it really make sense to fear germs & bugs the way you have been?

Pasteur vs. Bechamp

French scientists Louis Pasteur and Antoine Bechamp became bitter rivals as they advocated completely different theories of disease and infection. Pasteur proposed the idea of germ theory which taught that disease was caused by pathogenic microbes which invaded the body. He pioneered heating substances like raw milk to very high temperatures to kill the germs (this technique named pasteurization is still used today and named after him). This approach went hand-in-hand with Western Medicine’s drug-based approach, since it’s all about killing the germs before they kill you. On the other hand, Bechamp proposed the idea of host theory which taught that microbes are opportunistic and only attack and gain a foothold in organisms which are already weakened. Bechamp saw germs as the footnote to the disease, the end product of a longer process which started with the person already weakening their inner terrain. This could have been done through lack of nutrition, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, stress, emotional imbalance, poor lifestyle choices and exposure to toxins. Bechamp realized that people already have bacteria and viruses in their bodies all the time, yet the balance of beneficial bacteria keeps the harmful bacteria in check.

So, according to host theory, you don’t ‘catch’ germs that make you sick. Disease-causing germs arise opportunistically and begin to thrive in you only after you have already developed an internal weakness or imbalance in your body. They are a byproduct of the disease, not the cause of the disease. Bechamp theorized that germs were actually the chemical byproducts, dead tissue and degenerative aspects of a body’s unbalanced state. He stated living entities called microzymas (tiny enzymes) created bacteria in response to host and environmental factors. I often avoid using the heavily-biased Wikipedia for information (and in this area it is very pro-germ theory, pro-allopathy and pro-vaccine), however in this specific paragraph it does a good job summarizing Bechamp’s idea:

“Claiming discovery that the “molecular granulations” in biological fluids were actually the elementary units of life, Béchamp named them microzymas—that is, “tiny enzymes”—and credited them with producing enzymes and were the builders of cells while “evolving” amid favorable conditions into bacteria. Denying that bacteria could invade a healthy animal and cause disease, Béchamp claimed instead that unfavorable host and environmental conditions destabilize the host’s native microzymas, whereupon they decompose host tissue by producing pathogenic bacteria.”

Germ Theory Triumphs; People Forget about the Inner Terrain

Germ theory prevailed over host theory in the minds of many at the time, especially within the medical community. Despite this, that it is reported that, on his death bed, Pasteur renounced germ theory and admitted that Bechamp had been right all along (“Le microbe n’est rien, le terrain est tout.” [“The microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything”]). In my opinion, the acceptance of germ theory and the denigration of host theory has had disastrous effects for human health. It has conditioned people to be fearful of germs, to focus on the outer terrain and to look outside of themselves to antibiotics, petrochemical drugs, vaccines, radiation, chemotherapy and other allopathic interventions to save them from disease. Yes, there is a time and place for some of these measures, but the side effects are horrible, including vaccine-induced damage and the rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs, a whole new class of microbes which are on the verge of rendering antibiotics useless.

Béchamp got the bigger picture. He understood it was all about balance. He realized the importance of the inner terrain environments we create. As mentioned above, there are many factors that go into the creation of your bio-terrain, but the primary factor is the food you ingest. Food is medicine. Food can either strengthen or weaken your bio-terrain, and that means the difference between supporting health and ease or supporting sickness and disease.

Virus and Epidemic Hoaxes: The Fear Racket

Over the last 2 decades or so, Big Government (via the WHO [World Health Organization], branch of the UN) has hyped quite a few virus epidemic scenarios, such as the swine flu hoax, the ebola hoax and the zika hoax. In all of these cases, there was a massive amount of fear and disinformation promulgated by the MSM to encourage people to buy the latest Big Pharma product to supposedly ‘protect’ themselves from a virulent virus. However, if you dug a little deeper, you found suspicious behavior by the CDC (not accurately counting all the cases), poisons being sprayed beforehand in the area (authorities sprayed the insecticide pyriproxyfen beforehand in the zika breakout areas) and even evidence of bioweapons(zika was a Rockefeller-created virus). In this context, it’s important to remember this quote:

“Traditionally, the power of medical sciences has been based on the fear of disease, particularly infectious disease.”

– Peter Duesberg, author of Inventing The AIDS Virus

It’s also important to consider host theory here. What if epidemics were not really about the rise of a virulent virus but rather an indication of the collectively poor inner terrain environment of a group of people? What if they were evidence of mass poisoning? Jim West investigated these and other issues and came up with some startling conclusions:

“The vaccination programs are irrelevant to the decline of polio, while pesticides correlate perfectly with polio. The unfunded, ostracized theory of poison causality far exceeds all other theories in simplicity, exactitude, and directness regarding correlations within all data areas: dosage, physiology, etiology, epidemiology, economics, and politics.”

“Orthodox virology omits toxicology, and is thus void. Toxicological causation is obvious and toxicology is avoided by the media like the plague. Forget the intellectual, scientific intrigue of virology. Without toxicology, virology is a mind-trap. Virology is the deadly virus. Orthodoxy could claim that a “virus” has any number of fearful characteristics, but those characteristics are meaningless if the victims are poisoned. Without poisoning, perhaps the virus is a nutrient.  Perhaps there is no virus. Most likely, the “virus” is harmless human nucleic acid, rearranged as a response to poisoning, and thus always a test for said “virus” would be positive during periods of poisoning.”

“Epidemics are biomarkers for pollution.”

– Jim West

Heal the Patient, Not the Infection

We need to radically readjust our worldview if we want true lasting health. We need to lessen our fear of germs and bugs, and return to what we do have control over – our inner terrain. Health is not about killing germs, but restoring balance and strength so that germs cannot invade, infect or arise in your body again. Here is what one holistic and chiropractic health clinic has found works with their patients:

“Bechamp was indeed right when he said that as health returns to the patient, the germs and infections leave on their own and do not come back unless health becomes compromised again. We have found this approach to be very satisfying in terms of results for the patient.

We feel that it is a mistake to try to kill the infection directly rather than searching for the cause as to why that person’s immune system did not handle the infection on its own … We feel that if all you do is kill the infection without addressing the dysfunction in the patient’s immune system (which allowed the infection to manifest in the first place), the patient will simply become sick again at a later date.

Another problem with this approach is that in chronic infections you almost never see just one type of infection. When a person’s immune function becomes compromised, one infection such as a bacteria will open the door to other infections such as viruses, parasites, and fungi.”

Parallels Outside the World of Health

This idea of emphasizing the inner world over the outer world does not just apply to health. It is a key concept in other areas of life. For example, in the well-known book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey, the author lists 1 of the 7 habits as the habit of focusing on what you can control. The idea is to focus on your sphere of influence, because it is there you can make the biggest difference. Of course, your sphere of influence starts with you, even before it extends to your inner circle of family and friends. This idea is also summed up in the phrase think globally, act locally; it is important to have a broad view of the overall picture, but when it comes to doing, you have more control over actions at a local level. It can be disempowering to be constantly focused on how a tiny NWO cabal are plotting more and more centralization of power; it can be empowering to act in your community to thwart this agenda by pushing forward decentralization of power in whatever way you can.

There are also parallels in the sphere of spirituality, religion and life in general. How many people in your life do you know who are always looking outside of themselves for some kind of “salvation”? This could be in the form of drugs, sex, money, material acquisition, adrenaline rushes or the next romantic relationship; it could even be some patriarchal, judgemental “God” who allegedly promises them eternal life (+72 virgins) in the afterlife. Much of organized religion emphasizes that God is outside of you not inside of you, thus further promoting the tendency to look outside rather than to look within when confronted with challenges, obstacles or an existential crisis. Imagine if, by default, all children were taught to look within, and all people started to practice looking within, whenever a problem arose?

Conclusion: Time to Elevate the Importance of the Inner Terrain

It’s time to bring back host theory into our understanding to counterbalance germ theory. This doesn’t mean throwing out germ theory altogether, but rather lowering it to its rightful position so that our focus can return to building our health from within. According to current UN WHO stats, 71% of all deaths globally are from NCDs (non-communicable diseases). These don’t require synthetic drugs to wipe out a bug. That means over 7 out of 10 people are dying from preventable disease! This website highlights humanity’s predicament:

“Germ theory does not acknowledge how powerful your diet can be for preventing and treating diseases (especially chronic diseases or non-communicable diseases … such as cancer, heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, etc.). Some drugs are needed for infectious diseases, which is a completely different category. Infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, polio, and tropical diseases are easily spread through personal contact, water, air, and even mosquitoes and flies. But even these are looking for a more opportunistic host — someone with a compromised immune system or area of internal weakness to exploit.”

All this is more reason than ever to look within, on all levels – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Fortunately, this is within the control of each and every person.

American Capitalism Is Based on Plunder

The plunder is getting worse

By Paul Craig Roberts

August 19, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –  American capitalism is based on plunder. With the continental USA plundered, American capitalism hoped to continue enriching itself by plundering Russia as it did under Yeltsin, carefully including the Russian “Atlanticist Integrationists” in the spoils in order to have support from the liberal, progressive forces in Russia for stripping Russia of its assets. But Putin more or less put a halt to the American/Israeli rape of Russia, although it still continues through the neoliberal economics that Harvard brainwashed into the Russian central bank and economics profession. Brainwashed Russian economists are the main reason Washington is able to punish a powerful country such as Russia with economic sanctions.

The dependency of American capitalism on plunder is the reason Washington seeks to overthrow the people’s government of Venezuela. Chavez established a reformist government in Venezuela, one continued by Maduro. The reformist government nationalized Venezuela’s oil reserves. Instead of the profits being carted off by the American oil companies, they were kept at home where they raised the literacy rate and lowered the poverty rate. American capitalism wants the revenues back. Thus Washington’s attack on Venezuela.

The same for Iran. The Iranians were the first and most successful in throwing off the yoke of American imperialism. They overthrew the American puppet, the Shah in 1979, and used the oil revenues for the development of Iran instead of the purchase of arms from the US military/security complex. All of the propaganda against Iran is part of the effort, supplemented by sanctions, to regain control of Iranl’s oil wealth and to shut down Iran as a supplier of the Hezbolah militia that has prevented Israel’s occupation of Southern Lebanon.

Russia and China are also targeted, and the governments of both countries continue in their gullibility to play into Washington’s hands. Both governments permit American-financed Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to operate in their countries in open treasonous activities against the governments. The ongoing street protests in Hong Kong are a Washington operation directed at undermining the reputation and stability of the Chinese government. One must wonder why the Chinese government sets itself up as a target for Washington.

The Putin government’s toleration of American-paid traitors resulted in the recent riots and protests that the Russian police were pressed to control. The Russian government investigated not the protesters and their American financiers, but the police for protecting public order in Russia! The Russian police were criticized for being “too brutal” in the Russian government’s view in putting down the American organized attack on the Russian government. A government this confused has a low survival rate. Perhaps the situation is different inside Russia from how it is presented in the US media, but the way it is presented in the US is the way the world sees it. And it is not to Russia’s advantage.

Little wonder Washington regards Putin and the Chinese leadership as politicians who can be trifled with.

Perhaps Russia and China are so desperate for Western approval that they prove how democratic they are by permitting foreign orchestrated insurrection. The Hong Kong youth waving American flags must be unaware that the US is ruled by a smaller and worse oligarchy than China.

The US allows no foreign countries other than Israel to finance NGOs dedicated to influencing the United States Government. I am unaware of any Russian, Chinese, Iranian, or Venezuelan NGOs that are permitted to operate in the US. Who can imagine Israel permitting Palestinian NGOs to operate in Israel and stage street demonstrations and riots. In the United States the President is not even permitted to communicate with Russia without being accused of being a “Putin stooge” involved in a conspiracy to sell out America to Russia.

Russia has one economist who understands economics. His name is Sergei Glazyev. Glazyev, the most competent economist in Russia, understands that Russia’s economic development does not depend on foreign loans and capital from abroad. Loans from the West are simply a way of ensnaring Russia in the hands of external creditors, as happened to Greece. According to a recent report, Glazyev has been removed from his position as an adviser to Putin. It seems as if the pro-American Atlanticist Integrationists are going to keep Russia down until Russia has to submit to Washington for a bailout.

Awaiting the chance to resume exploitation of Russia, Iran, Venezuela and China, American capitalism in the meantime is going to plunder what is left of the public’s lands—the national forests, parks, monuments and wildlife refuges. You can read about it below.

Trump Regime Opens US National Forests to Plunder by Private Timber Companies

http://www.addisonindependent.com/news/proposed-change-would-cut-public-input-green-mtn-national-forest

If a proposed change in federal land use rules goes through, the 90,000 acres of Green Mountain National Forest that fall within Addison County could see a lot more commercial logging, road building and utility corridors — all without environmental review or public input.

“Basically, the rules would take the ‘public’ out of public land management,” said Jamey Fidel, Forest and Wildlife Program Director for the Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC).

At issue is a proposal by the United States Forest Service (USFS) to revise the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which is the foundation of environmental policy making in the United States. It requires agencies like the USFS to analyze the environmental effects of their proposed actions prior to making decisions.

The USFS proposal would drastically alter those requirements by greatly expanding the number and type of projects that would count as “categorical exclusions,” which can be approved without environmental assessments or impact statements.

Projects the USFS would reclassify as “categorical exclusions” include:

  • Commercial logging, including clear cutting, on areas up to 4,200 acres at a time.
    • Building new roads through the forest up to five miles at a time.
    • Reconstructing old roads through the forest up to 10 miles a time.
    • Bulldozing up to four miles of pipeline and utility rights-of-way through the forest.
    • Closing roads and trails used for recreational purposes.
    Adding illegally built roads and trails to the official USFS road and trail system.

New rules would also allow the USFS to bypass public input on nearly every project decision.
According to estimates from a number of forestry and environmental organizations, the proposal would eliminate public and environmental review from more than 90 percent of all USFS projects.
The Forest Service says it needs to do this because, among other things, the agency has a backlog of “special use permits or renewals” that “are awaiting environmental analysis and decision affecting more than 7,000 businesses and 120,000 jobs.” [The jobs are not needed if in fact the US has a full employment rate of 3.5% unemployment. ]

In addition, such challenges as the recent increase in wildfires are taking up more and more of the agency’s resources and personnel. [In other words, global warming is using up the agency’s budget fighting fires.]

What the USFS does not mention, however, is that according to the Congressional Research Service, the Trump administration has proposed cutting Forest Service spending by nearly $1 billion for fiscal year 2020, including a $654.4 million cut in Wildland Fire Management.

“This (proposed change to NEPA) is happening at a time when the Forest Service is slashing its own budget, and lacks the resources to evaluate what it’s doing,” wrote Sam Evans in The New York Times.
Evans, who works in the Southern Appalachian national forests, went on to call the USFS proposal “an attack on the very idea” of public lands.

“If the Forest Service has its way, visitors won’t know what’s coming until logging trucks show up at their favorite trailheads or a path for a gas pipeline is cleared below a scenic vista.”
The USFS insists that the changes “meet both the spirit and intention of the NEPA,” but critics see the recent proposal as part of a larger trend.

Last December, after revoking permits that would have allowed the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to build through parts of the George Washington and Monongahela national forests, as well as across the Appalachian Trail, the 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals rebuked the Forest Service for granting permits that violated both the National Forest Management Act and NEPA.

The three-judge panel concluded that the agency had “abdicated its responsibility to preserve national forest resources.” Of particular note was the way the Forest Service’s “environmental concerns … were suddenly, and mysteriously, assuaged in time to meet a private pipeline company’s deadlines.”

IN THE GREEN MOUNTAINS

In Vermont, recent USFS projects in the Green Mountain National Forest (GMNF) have sparked concern among a number of environmental organizations, including the VNRC.

“In the past, when the Forest Service has undertaken major projects on the GMNF there has been ample opportunity (in accordance with the NEPA) for public comment and involvement,” wrote VNRC officials in a May 3 blog post. “VNRC has participated in these opportunities and we have enjoyed a collaborative relationship with the GMNF.”

But starting in the second half of 2018, the USFS began limiting public comment on projects — one to conduct even-aged timber harvesting on 15,000 acres in the southern half of the forest, and another that would require dozens of miles of new roads to implement 9,630 acres of timber harvesting.
Altogether, according to the VNRC, “the Forest Service is planning to construct 84 miles of road (57 miles of new and temporary roads and 26.7 miles of reconstructed roads over the next 15 years) with no opportunity for public comment on the environmental impacts of these activities.”

The Green Mountain National Forest is one of only two national forests in New England. It was established in 1932 in response to excess logging, fire and flooding. As of 2011, the GMNF covered 821,040 acres, nearly half of which was federally owned.

More than 18 percent of Addison County lies within the forest.

The Independent was unable to reach GMNF officials for comment in time for this story.
Supporters of public and environmental review see the proposed NEPA changes as an attempt by the Trump administration to codify the Forest Service’s recent practices.
And many of them are fighting back.

Organizations ranging from the National Audubon Society to the Sierra Club to the National Parks Conservation Association are urging concerned citizens to submit a public comment on the proposed rule changes.

The deadline for commenting is Aug. 26.

“Please make your comments specific and unique to your concerns and relate your comments to a particular national forest, like the Green Mountain National Forest,” wrote VNRC officials on July 25. “The Forest Service will lump together (similar comments) and count them as one comment, so please make your comments unique to be counted.”

Release of official autopsy showing broken bones in Jeffrey Epstein’s neck is all the proof we need that he’s still ALIVE… here’s why

Image: Release of official autopsy showing broken bones in Jeffrey Epstein’s neck is all the proof we need that he’s still ALIVE… here’s why

(Natural News) The bombshell news for today is that the official autopsy results for Jeffrey Epstein have been released. According to mainstream media outlets such as the Washington Post — a mouthpiece for the deep state — Jeffrey Epstein’s neck bones were broken in a manner that is consistent with strangulation. As reported by True Pundit:

An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings, deepening the mystery about the circumstances around his death. Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. Jonathan Arden, president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, said a hyoid can be broken in many circumstances, but is more commonly associated with homicidal strangulation than suicidal hanging.

Remember, this is what the establishment wants the public to believe. It’s the “official” finding. The establishment, in other words, wants the public to believe that Jeffrey Epstein was likely murdered, since that’s what the autopsy evidence strongly supports.

But why would the establishment want the public to believe Epstein was murdered when it’s so much easier to simply announce he committed suicide?

The first casualty of the government’s info war is the truth

Don’t think for a minute that autopsies of such high profile deaths are carried out with a sense of “transparency” or truth. It’s all about shaping the message for a strategic purpose. And this autopsy in particular was carried out by Medical Examiner Barbara Sampson with Dr. Michael Baden observing. Dr. Michael Baden is, of course, the very same person who oversaw the autopsy of JFK after he was shot and killed by the deep state in 1963. (Yes, Dr. Baden’s career spans many decades.) Dr. Baden was also involved in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. investigation and even served as an expert witness in the defense of O.J. Simpson. (Source)

If you think Dr. Michael Baden isn’t connected to the highest levels of globalist deep state power, you’re clueless about the history of the world in which you live.

If the establishment wants you to think Jeffrey Epstein is dead, it’s only because he isn’t dead. He’s still alive, and he has obviously been moved to another location to be grilled by the people who now have him. The only real question is: Who carried out the body swap?

The evidence leans toward a military team operating under the orders of President Trump. Jeffrey Epstein was rescued, the theory goes, so that his testimony could be secured to help bring down the deep state. Jeffrey Epstein can name names, and he no doubt has elaborate records and video files showing the world’s powerful elite having sex with under age girls (or boys). A clever blackmailer like Epstein would have obviously made multiple copies of this evidence and hidden those copied in many locations, probably connected to a “dead man’s switch” that would release files if he doesn’t check back in from time to time. (h/t to Dave Hodges at TheCommonsenseShow.com who knows even more about this than I. He and I recorded a one-hour talk about all this last night, and the recording will be posted soon as his website.)

The proper way to set this up, by the way, is to digitize all the video files and encrypt the files using strong encryption. The decryption key is placed under the control of an unaffiliated third party who is instructed to post the decryption keys in a public forum if the original control person (Epstein) doesn’t check in and provide a password or proof of life every 48 – 72 hours. Simultaneously, independent teams that are tasked with holding the encrypted files are instructed to watch various public forums for keyword-triggered postings of a decryption key. If such a key appears, they are instructed to decrypt the files they posses using the decryption key that has been publicly posted. Once the decryption is complete, they are instructed to post the decrypted video files to various locations which may include video sites, 4chan, reddit, etc. This is the basic structure of a so-called “dead man’s switch” involving digital files.

Once you understand this, it’s not difficult to realize that kidnapping and torturing Jeffrey Epstein would give you control over the dead man’s switch. Under duress, Epstein could either be forced to prevent the release of the files, or to trigger their release, depending on what the kidnapping party wants to see happen.

The fact that no bombshell video files or other evidence hasn’t yet been publicly released is very nearly proof that Epstein is still alive. In fact, it’s strong evidence that Epstein is being allowed to (or forced to) reset the countdown triggers on the dead man switches.

Two scenarios are now possible, depending on which party took Epstein alive

Now, the only question is who has him? Is it the Trump camp, or the Clinton camp?

If Trump operatives have Epstein, the play book runs like this:

Step 1: FAKE the autopsy and report to the world that Epstein was murdered or “suicided.”

Step 2: FORCE Epstein to keep resetting his dead man switches so that blackmail evidence doesn’t get publicly released yet, providing time for Trump’s military operatives to interview Epstein on camera and gather bombshell evidence that names deep state Democrats as child sex predators.

Step 3: PROTECT Epstein until he can testify in court. Continue to promote the narrative that Epstein has been killed, thereby dissuading the Clinton deep state from trying to find him and murder him.

Step 4: At some point, ALLOW Epstein’s files to be released by blocking him from resetting the dead man switches. The timing of this is crucial. It must happen near the time that Epstein’s newly-recorded video testimony is also released to the world, probably around the time the DOJ files criminal charges against deep state Democrats.

If Clinton operatives have Epstein, the play book runs like this:

Step 1: TORTURE Epstein to force him to reset his dead man switches every 48 hours or so, thereby preventing the release of his blackmail files.

Step 2: KEEP TORTURING Epstein in an effort to get him to disclose his dead man switch contacts in the hopes of tracking them down and disabling those switches.

Step 3: FIND all the blackmail material and destroy it. This is the job of the FBI, of course, which now exists as the “Clinton crimes cover-up committee” which is the whole point of the FBI recently raiding Jeffrey Epstein’s “Orgy Island.” The goal wasn’t to find evidence of crimes, but to destroy evidence of crimes. (The FBI is now totally corrupt and functions as a criminal crime syndicate.)

Step 4: MURDER Epstein and dump his body somewhere that it will never be found.

Bottom line? If the Clinton deep state operatives have Epstein, he’s probably having his skin peeled off right now. If Trump operatives have Epstein, he’s probably being interviewed and interrogated to divulge everything he knows. That evidence would likely be timed to coincidence with the coming DOJ criminal indictments of corrupt deep state officials like James Comey and John Brennan.

Either way, Jeffrey Epstein is going to burn in Hell. The only question is whether some of the other Demoncrats will join him after being exposed for the sicko pedophiles they truly are.

Let us hope Trump’s people have Epstein. Presently, I give that about 70/30 odds.

Or, I suppose, you could just believe the official story and conclude that the government always tells you the truth. Yeah, and JFK was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, too, and Oklahoma City was carried out by Timothy McVeigh. If you believe all that, you’ll probably believe anything the government tells you. So take your vaccine shots, eat your GMOs and trust Google on everything. You don’t believe in “conspiracy theories,” remember? And there’s a chemotherapy clinic waiting for you, too, so that your brain can be damaged to the point where you don’t even remember what it’s like to be a free citizen.

Epstein, Faction, and Neopatrimonialism

By Dan Corjescu

Faction: a number of citizens, whether amounting to a minority or majority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.

— James Madison Federalist #10

August 14, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –   Never has the word “conspiracy” been spoken so easily.

Never has the dark evil that is Factionalism and Neopatrimonialism been on such stark display.

If you think Jeffrey Epstein, a man with an inordinate, if strongly misguided lust for life, killed himself rather than was murdered by his erstwhile “friends and associates” you still haven’t taken the red pill.

The writers of the Federalist Papers were famously concerned about the possibility of faction in the United States; their fear was founded in part by their understanding of human psychology and ancient history. They were rightly skeptical about the possibility of totally avoiding the rise of an organized collection of individuals who would capture the state and by implication spread their influence and power throughout the fabric of civil society.

Such a relatively large faction is in existence today, although it is, for the most part, hidden in its day to day workings. As the founding fathers well understood, nothing is more natural than a group of persons tacitly agreeing to work together to further their own private interests at the expense of all others who are not included in their surreptitious compact. The group that can successfully capture the state is master of all else. This activity is emphatically not a direct result of capitalism but of something much more ancient and primordial; the lust for total control and unlimited power. Cabals, cliques, compacts, conspiracies, secret hierarchies have existed in all types of polities, places, and times. Machiavelli spoke of it at length. Even Kant mentioned it. It is nothing outlandish or new. People will scheme for unfair advantage and privilege; even animals do it on a regular basis.

Yet the problem is that human beings are also equipped with a sense of justice and fair play. When a polity that purports to epitomize the ideal of a modern democratic state with the rule of law, representative government, separation of powers, an impartial bureaucracy, and careers open to all talents is de facto nothing of the sort, it becomes inevitable for symptoms of decay, rot, and outrageous human vice not unlike that of the Roman Empire to increasingly appear.

When a faction, however large, has taken over a society that society becomes what is known as Neopatrimonial. Even conservative thinkers such as Francis Fukuyama have pointed out the accelerating nature of this political disease that, like a cancer, spreads its tentacles throughout the world’s bodies politic, even the most “progressive ones”. Neopatrimonialism presupposes powerful elites who as patrons work closely with armies of less powerful clients who are often dependent on them for current positions, possible advancements, and other privileges and emoluments not limited to themselves, but crucially, for their offspring as well. A telephone call, a manipulated email, a lunch meeting, a tacit agreement by powerful lawmakers, all the way to secret directives tailor made by the security forces and the “executive” (often, maybe always, one of the de facto administrative chiefs not of the “people” but of the “faction”); all are but a few examples of how Neopatrimonialism functions.

At times, the fierceness of the faction shows as well as their haughty disregard and unconcern at public exposure. So sure are these consummate assassins of the body politic of their perfect unassailability. So sure are these cool headed ringleaders in their total command of the real that nothing can threaten their mobility, reach, and Morphean powers over the manufacturing of collective gullibility. Sheep are to be sheared and faction rules are to be obeyed.

Somewhere along the line, Jeffrey Epstein, for all his power, wealth, and connections significantly betrayed the trust of those who not only raised him up from literally nothing but protected him for so many years. A protection that extended, not surprisingly, from the state itself. The “faction” has the power of deciding the “exception”. And for a long time, Jeffrey Epstein was one of those exceptions.

If you believe that Epstein’s sexual depredations are what ultimately brought him down you are confusing means with cause. The fatal breach that led to both his incarceration and eventual murder within the heart of American Empire (for it is truly New York City and not Washington D.C.; the first is the iron fist, the second the theatrical glove) the public will never know. But the draconian rules of the faction are clear; we are many and you are only one; nothing, not billions, fame, potential usefulness, belated contriteness, can excuse the dictatorial rules of factionalism in a Neopatrimonial state masquerading as a representative democracy. Jeffrey Epstein’s demise is not one of conscience, fear, self-pity, inmate rage, or ironic justice; the voracious hive has deliberately, admonishingly devoured one of its own.

Who wanted Jeffrey Epstein dead?

By Patrick Martin

August 14, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –  Let’s begin by stating the obvious: Jeffrey Epstein’s violent death in a Manhattan jail cell prevents a trial or a plea deal that threatened to expose business associates and political enablers who made use of the services provided by his alleged sex-trafficking activities, or who profited from this and other sordid operations of the multimillionaire money manager.

Given the extraordinary circumstances surrounding his death, the efforts of the media—and theNew York Times in particular—to dismiss out of hand any suggestion that Epstein’s death was the result of anything but a suicide reek of a high-level cover-up. Whether he was strangled in a jail cell by a hired killer or allowed to hang himself is almost beside the point.

Epstein’s life came to a violent end while in the custody of the US government. This is an undeniable fact. Even if he committed suicide, the act could not have succeeded without the direct complicity of those who were responsible for his safety.

And while Epstein was accused of deplorable crimes, it should hardly be necessary to point out that he—yes, even Epstein—had the right to a vigorous defense in a trial. That his untimely death preempts and prevents the trial from taking place is a matter of staggering seriousness.

The suspicion of homicide is clearly justified. That Epstein was murdered—whether by an assailant or by the calculated enabling of his jail cell suicide—is far more plausible than the official account of what took place at the Metropolitan Correctional Center over the past three weeks. According to prison officials, Epstein was found hanged in his cell Saturday morning. His guards had neglected to perform their every-half-hour inspection during the night and only belatedly took a look at their prisoner at 6:30 a.m.

This occurred even though Epstein was arguably the most notorious prisoner currently in federal custody, with his arrest on sex-trafficking charges given saturation coverage in the New York and national media. Moreover, he had been placed on suicide watch from July 23, when he was reportedly found unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck, until July 31, when the special provisions, including 24/7 surveillance, were lifted without explanation.

Epstein’s attorneys and other visitors said they saw no signs that the multimillionaire was in low spirits or likely to take his own life, and he had been participating in preparations for his legal defense in an upcoming trial for as much as 12 hours a day.

Investigations have now begun by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Attorney General William Barr and the Justice Department inspector general, all of whom have ample reason to rig the result and cover up what really happened. So far, the most elementary facts have been withheld from the public. It has not been reported how and with what material Epstein was hanged, or whether there is a video recording of his cell that would show the alleged “suicide” or otherwise shed light on the physical circumstances of his death.

The legal and political circumstances of Epstein’s death are a different matter; they strongly suggest that Epstein had become a danger to an entire section of the Wall Street and political elite, who had a powerful motive to silence him.

The media has quickly moved to denounce anyone who points to the obviously concocted character of the official story as the promoter of a “conspiracy theory.”

The New York Times is aggressively promoting the official claims of suicide. The newspaper’s editorial Sunday begins, “By apparently committing suicide in his Manhattan jail cell on Saturday morning, Jeffrey Epstein spared himself a lengthy trial that could have sent him to prison for the rest of his life on federal sex-trafficking charges.”

The use of the word “apparently” is entirely out of place. In the absence of any details relating to this death, nothing is “apparent.” The Times is simply conditioning the public to accept the suicide narrative without an urgently required criminal investigation into Epstein’s death, which must be considered suspicious.

Furthermore, why does the Times state that Epstein was “spared” a trial? Do the editors have information that supports their assumption that Epstein did not want to have a trial? What about the possibility that his death “spares” other powerful and influential people from having their connections to Epstein’s proven and alleged criminal activities, either sexual or financial, brought into the public eye by a lengthy legal proceeding.

“Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department’s inspector general would open an investigation into the circumstances of Mr. Epstein’s death in federal custody. While Mr. Epstein will never face a legal reckoning, the investigations into his crimes, and those of others connected to him, must continue. His premature death shouldn’t stop law enforcement authorities from finishing the job that they finally took up seriously years after they should have.”

This is cynical claptrap: The Times knows full well that Epstein’s death, without a trial or conviction (technically, Epstein dies an innocent man, at least on the most recent charges), will effectively end the investigation. There is no longer the danger of a plea deal, which Epstein’s lawyers would certainly have attempted to negotiate in return for his testimony in trials of others whom he might have implicated in the alleged sex-trafficking ring.

The Times does not raise these obvious issues, let alone demand a criminal investigation and public hearings into the circumstances of Epstein’s highly suspicious death.

Any elementary review of the facts makes clear that Epstein’s death must be treated as a criminal investigation. Only 24 hours before his death, more than 2,000 pages of documents were released by a Florida court in a civil suit brought by one of the women who has charged Epstein with enslaving her as a teenager as part of his systematic abuse of young girls. The woman filed a defamation suit against Epstein’s partner, Ghislaine Maxwell, who allegedly had acted as a procuress, recruiting teenage girls to service him.

Maxwell is herself a product of the super-rich milieu that vomited up Epstein. She is the daughter of the late British billionaire publisher Robert Maxwell, also the target of numerous allegations of fraud and other financial crimes.

In a grisly similarity, Robert Maxwell died under mysterious circumstances in 1991, when he allegedly fell off his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine (named after the daughter), and his naked body was found floating in the Atlantic Ocean several days later. The death was ruled accidental, although both suicide and homicide were widely suggested at the time.

The documents released Thursday named a number of prominent political and society figures as patrons of Epstein’s sex ring, including two top Democrats, former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and former governor and Clinton cabinet member Bill Richardson, a one-time presidential candidate, as well as Prince Andrew, second son of the Queen of England.

Whatever the truth of the allegations against these individuals, there is no question that Epstein was for many years an integral part of the financial and political elite in the United States, hobnobbing with former presidents like Bill Clinton and future presidents—and equally corrupt billionaires—like Donald Trump.

Epstein was a Palm Beach neighbor of Trump, and some of the girls he abused were recruited at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. That circumstance may account for Trump’s extraordinary response to the news of Epstein’s death, as he retweeted a right-wing supporter’s suggestion that Epstein was murdered at the orders of Bill Clinton.

The death of Epstein so obviously invites the assumption that this is a case of removing an inconvenient personality, one who could have implicated dozens if not hundreds of powerful people if he were finally brought to trial, that the official claim of suicide made possible by neglect on the part of low-ranking prison guards has been greeted with disbelief. Epstein’s death evokes recollections of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather.

The Epstein case, in all its criminal depravity, sheds light on the state of American capitalist society. The super-rich prey upon the poor and the vulnerable, using them as they wish. They make use of their connections to cover up their crimes, or, depending on the circumstances, arrange for the elimination of those former friends and associates whose activities have become an inconvenience or a danger.

Italy was the world’s superpower TWICE. They screwed it up both times

In 750 BC, according to ancient legend, the twin brothers Romulus and Remus founded a tiny hilltop settlement in central Italy.

Romulus slew his brother for violating a magical superstition, and then named their new city after himself: Rome.

And for the first several centuries of its existence, Rome was nothing special. It was one of many minor kingdoms on a peninsula controlled by the Etruscan civilization… and existed at a time when Greek city-states like Athens and Sparta were the dominant superpowers.

Rome’s status began to rise dramatically after Alexander the Great died in 323 BC and left a void of power in the Mediterranean.

Did you know? You can receive all our actionable articles straight to your email inbox… Click here to signup for our Notes from the Field newsletter.

But it took until 146 BC, when Roman general Scipio Aemilanus vanquished Carthage in the final siege of the Punic Wars, for Rome to become the clear, undisputed superpower of the known world.

The city’s dominance lasted for nearly 500 years until Roman emperor Constantine the Great moved the capital city to modern-day Turkey in the 4th century AD.

In that time, Rome surpassed even ancient Greece as the most advanced civilization in the history of the world up to that point.

From their vast road networks to the famed aqueducts, ancient Rome’s engineering works were unsurpassed in Europe for more than 1,000 years.

Their architecture and military tactics were copied for centuries.

Their rule of law is still widely used in many modern legal codes to this day.

And the system of government they created has been emulated throughout the world countless times.

During the time of Augustus in the early 1st century AD, it would have been impossible to imagine a world in which Rome wasn’t the dominant superpower.

And yet the managed to screw it up.

Weak leadership, ridiculous overspending, excessive warfare, currency debasement, idiotic trade policies, price controls, etc. all contributed to the gradual decline of Rome’s wealth and power.

Eventually all of Italy was conquered by invading barbarian tribes, and the grandeur of ancient Rome was relegated to the history books.

Then something interesting happened.

Nearly 1,000 years later, when there was yet another void of economic power in the Mediterranean, a handful of Italian city-states began to emerge as regional leaders.

The movement started in Venice, where the city took steps to enshrine economic freedom and create an economy where anyone who worked hard and took risks had the chance to become prosperous.

This was a radical concept in medieval Europe, when most of the continent was stagnating under the remarkably foolish Feudal System, in which peasants had few rights and zero prospects for growth.

Venice was truly the America of its day– a shining beacon of freedom and opportunity that attracted hard-working, talented people from all over the world.

In time, other Italian city-states like Florence, Genoa, and Pisa also rose to prominence, and Italy once again had become the center of wealth and power in Europe.

Similarly, it would have been nearly impossible for one of the powerful banking families of Florence living during the time of Cosimo de Medici in the early 1400s to imagine a time when they weren’t the dominant superpower.

And yet they managed to screw it up as well.

This is history’s constant lesson: no one… no country, no empire, no ruler… is entitled to the top spot forever.

Wealth and power are constantly changing. And the most pompous superpowers invariably believe that they’re going to last forever. They simply cannot imagine a world where they’re not #1.

Italy is very unique in this sense because it was the dominant superpower TWO times in its history– the first with Ancient Rome, and the second during the early Renaissance.

Both times they were eclipsed by other rising powers, in large part from their own mistakes and stupidity.

The world has seen so many superpowers in its history– from Ancient Egypt to the Ottoman Empire to the Mongols to the Soviet Union.

Every single one of them eventually faded… and sometimes rather chaotically.

It would be utterly foolish to presume that this will never happen again… to believe that THIS time is different.

It’s never different.

But it would be equally foolish (and paranoid) to believe that some great historical reset is going to take place tomorrow morning. Or that the world’s dominant superpower is going to ‘collapse’ overnight.

These things take time. Decay is a slow process.

But it never hurts to take sensible steps to protect yourself from what may come.

As an example, if you happen to be living in a country that has accumulated the largest mountain of government debt in the history of the world, you might not want to keep 100% of your wealth and savings there.

If your central bank is INSOLVENT on a mark-to-market basis, you might not want to keep 100% of your savings denominated in its currency.

If your home country is highly litigious where some of the most ridiculously frivolous lawsuits can cost millions, you might not want to keep all of your assets there.

If your government routinely snuffs out its most basic, enshrined freedoms under the guise of safety and security, you might consider options for a second citizenship based on your ancestry.

If Bolshevik politicians who hate individual success are rising to power and calling for absurd tax rates, you might want to start thinking about legal ways to reduce your tax bill.

Each of these ideas makes sense, no matter what happens (or doesn’t happen) next.

You certainly won’t be worse off lowering your tax bill, or making it more difficult for people to sue you, or taking steps to inflation-proof your savings.

But if the decay accelerates, these are potentially game-changing solutions.

And that’s what a good “Plan B” is all about.

Cerberus: A New Android ‘Banking Malware For Rent’ Emerges

Cerberus android banking trojan

After a few popular Android Trojans like AnubisRed Alert 2.0GM bot, and Exobot, quit their malware-as-a-service businesses, a new player has emerged on the Internet with similar capabilities to fill the gap, offering Android bot rental service to the masses.

Dubbed “Cerberus,” the new remote access Trojan allows remote attackers to take total control over the infected Android devices and also comes with banking Trojan capabilities like the use of overlay attacks, SMS control, and contact list harvesting.

According to the author of this malware, who is surprisingly social on Twitter and mocks security researchers and antivirus industry openly, Cerberus has been coded from scratch and doesn’t re-use any code from other existing banking Trojans.

The author also claimed to be using the Trojan for private operations for at least two years before renting it out for anyone interested from the past two months at $2000 for 1 month usage, $7000 for 6 months and up to $12,000 for 12 months.

Cerberus Banking Trojan: Features

According to security researchers at Threat Fabric who analyzed a sample of Cerberus Trojan, the malware has a pretty common list of features, like:

  • taking screenshots
  • recording audio
  • recording keylogs
  • sending, receiving, and deleting SMSes,
  • stealing contact lists
  • forwarding calls
  • collecting device information
  • Tracking device location
  • stealing account credentials,
  • disabling Play Protect
  • downloading additional apps and payloads
  • removing apps from the infected device
  • pushing notifications
  • locking device’s screen

Once infected, Cerberus first hides its icon from the application drawer and then asks for the accessibility permission by masquerading itself as Flash Player Service. If granted, the malware automatically registers the compromised device to its command-and-control server, allowing the buyer/attacker to control the device remotely.

To steal users’ credit card numbers, banking credentials and passwords for other online accounts, Cerberus lets attackers launch screen overlay attacks from its remote dashboard.

In screen overlay attack, the Trojan displays an overlay on top of legitimate mobile banking apps and tricks Android users into entering their banking credentials into the fake login screen, just like a phishing attack.

“The bot abuses the accessibility service privilege to obtain the package name of the foreground application and determine whether or not to show a phishing overlay window,” the researchers said.

According to researchers, Cerberus already contains overlay attack templates for a total of 30 unique targets, including:

  • 7 French banking apps
  • 7 U.S. banking apps
  • 1 Japanese banking app
  • 15 non-banking apps

Cerberus Uses Motion-based Evasion Tactic

Cerberus also uses some interesting techniques to evade detection from antivirus solutions and prevent its analysis, like using the device accelerometer sensor to measure movements of the victim.

The idea is straightforward—as a user moves, their Android device usually generates some amount of motion sensor data. The malware monitors the user’s steps through the device motion sensor to check if it is running on a real Android device.

“The Trojan uses this counter to activate the bot—if aforementioned step counter hits the pre-configured threshold it considers running on the device to be safe,” the researchers explain.

“This simple measure prevents the Trojan from running and being analyzed in dynamic analysis environments (sandboxes) and on the test devices of malware analysts.”

If the user’s device lacks sensor data, the malware assumes that the sandbox for scanning malware is an emulator with no motion sensors and will not run the malicious code.

However, this technique is also not unique and has previously been implemented by the popular Android banking Trojan ‘Anubis’.

It should be noted that Cerberus malware does not exploit any vulnerability to get automatically installed on a targeted device in the first place. Instead, the malware installation relies on social engineering tactics.

Therefore, to protect yourself from becoming victims to such malware threats, you are recommended to be careful what you download on your phone and definitely think thrice before side-loading stuff as well.
