August 9, 2019, I used to be contacted by Washington Put up reporter Lena H. Solar. She requested an interview, which I needed to decline on account of journey and talking engagements. As a substitute, I requested her to ship me the questions, so I might reply in writing.
Contemplating the biased and clearly industry-favorable reporting achieved by Solar and The Washington Put up on earlier events, I might not be stunned if my solutions are twisted or misinterpreted to help an narrative, so I’ve determined to publish all of The Washington Put up’s inquiries to me, alongside with my full solutions. I anticipate The Washington Put up article to be printed later this week.
In my response, I additionally confronted Solar about The Washington Put up’s concerted efforts to “dig up grime” on me and my firm, in addition to her failure to publish a correction to a vaccine story by which she made a provably false declare. Under, you will see correspondence to Solar in its entirety.
As famous in an August 6, 2019, HuffPost article1 by Paul Thacker, media reporters and columnists are routinely enlisted, groomed and secretly used to disseminate propaganda, and Solar’s reporting bears most of the hallmarks and speaking factors of the vaccine . Her inquiries to me have them as nicely.
In his article,2 Thacker highlights one other Washington Put up columnist, Tamar Haspel, whose blogs and articles persistently favor the GMO and chemical agriculture. Haspel has additionally grow to be a voice for GMO Solutions (an entrance group created by Monsanto’s PR agency, Ketchum). Not surprisingly, there’s now proof suggesting Haspel works somewhat intently with Monsanto and Ketchum. In line with Thacker:
“For a lot of who’ve been suspicious of Haspel’s relationship with agrichemical giants, the paperwork are additional proof that she’s too near the she writes about and that her distinguished column at The Washington Put up gives a perch to unfold deceptive details about agriculture and the meals we eat.”
The battle on well being freedom is heating up
I’ve been publishing articles concerning the risks of social engineering and information assortment by the most important monopolies for a number of years. Fb, Google and Amazon are engaged in a harmful try to regulate the lots by way of huge information assortment, surveillance and censorship.
These expertise tyrants are working time beyond regulation to forestall entry to data that contradicts their world view and supreme aim, pushed by greed, conquest and insatiable lust for management.
Whereas the justifications given for the present censorship on holistic well being usually and vaccine security particularly is that of “public security,” one should query the rationale behind blocking first-hand testimony of vaccine harm, and bullying and maligning of victims of medical hurt somewhat than supporting them and investigating the causes that permit for harms to happen on such huge scales.
Between the present on-line censorship and the exponential development of synthetic intelligence, our capacity to assume independently is below rapid risk. Social engineering techniques are employed from each angle — the manipulation and management of a good portion of the worldwide inhabitants is happening proper earlier than our very eyes.
There is a motive that information has grow to be the world’s most useful useful resource, exceeding the worth of oil.three As reported by The Economist in 2017,four Amazon captures 50 cents of each greenback Individuals spend on-line, whereas Google and Fb between them “accounted for nearly all of the income development in digital promoting in America” in 2016.
Fb alone makes billions by monitoring each click on, picture, phrase and GPS location of its customers after which promoting that data to anybody prepared to pay. Google, in the meantime, has infiltrated just about each nook and cranny of our lives.
By taking on colleges, it now has the means to begin its in depth information harvesting proper from childhood, constructing probably the most in depth character profiles of a technology ever conceived.
And, whereas present censorship and social engineering efforts are centered totally on eliminating voices which are vital of vaccines, it will be silly and naïve within the excessive to consider it is going to finish there.
In the end, the tip aim is complete management — they will let you know what you want, be it a vaccine, a medicine, a poisonous meals or any different items or companies, and you might be to conform, handing over your thoughts, physique and money, no questions requested.
Surveillance and social manipulation by way of censorship and “curated content material” are all required for such a nonviolent but hostile takeover to work, and all of them are at the moment in play, proper earlier than our eyes, behind our backs.
Large Brother joins massive tech in ‘Surveillance Valley’
As reported by NBC Information5 August eight, 2019, Amazon is now “growing high-tech surveillance instruments” for the U.S. police drive, saying it “has an obligation to assist police, protection and intelligence businesses.”
Whereas there are advantages, there are additionally hidden drawbacks and uncomfortable side effects of such partnerships, the obvious one being the enlargement of presidency’s capacity to surveil Individuals with out simply trigger.
Amazon founder and CEO Jeffrey Bezos additionally purchased The Washington Put up in 2013.6 Now, what might the proprietor of an enormous monopoly, who has no newspaper expertise, need with a newspaper?
Contemplating the ability of gathering information and controlling data on the scale that this surveillance permits, logic will let you know that once you mix mass information assortment capabilities with an enormous media empire, you develop the synergistic capacity to guard and additional your aim — no matter it may be, from second to second.
Google and Fb comply with the identical mannequin — they gather information, management data and use synthetic intelligence for social engineering functions. I’ve been the goal of hit items pushing propaganda for a very long time, and I’ve been speaking concerning the risks of those technofascists for years.
We at the moment are trying on the “endgame” for the continued existence of freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and never solely your capacity but in addition your very proper to take management of your well being. All of those fundamental human rights of autonomy and self-determination are below assault, and except we defend them with all the things we’ve received, we could nicely lose them all.
What follows are my responses precisely as I wrote them to Solar’s questions precisely as she wrote them for her Washington Put up article, beginning with my commentary on her makes an attempt to extract data from former Mercola.com workers.
Confronting Solar about grime digging and false statements
Earlier than I reply your questions, I’ve a remark to make: We’ve acquired disturbing communications from former workers informing us of your makes an attempt to solicit unfavorable opinions and confidential enterprise information from them. If you’re taken with seeing the true tradition at Mercola.com, the next video was not too long ago produced by a few of my workers to have a good time our 22nd anniversary.
Moreover, in an October 25, 2017, story you printed false details about vaccines and whooping cough, which you said doesn’t happen in communities with excessive charges of immunization. We duly despatched you a correction. Your response, oddly, was to delete the false data however, to our data, you didn’t concern a correction.
Should you did publish a correction and we missed it, please advise.
This kind of journalistic error being coated up and your repeated questions containing false claims and assaults on others supporting knowledgeable consent rules demonstrates a reckless disregard of the reality and adherence to truthful journalism requirements which embrace presenting opposing views and totally different views.
Among the claims you make about me and my firm should not remotely true.
• You declare that I state “my merchandise are higher than vaccines.” If such an announcement is certainly discovered on my web site, why don’t you present the hyperlink? To allege that I declare “my merchandise are higher than vaccines,” is fake, and demonstrates a reckless disregard of the reality.
• You declare I “inform[s] folks to not get vaccinated and to take Vitamin D as an alternative.” That assertion is twice false: I don’t inform folks to not get vaccinated, and I don’t say to take vitamin D as an alternative of getting vaccinated. Making both declare in any article you publish would show a reckless disregard for the reality.
• You infer that I make massive income by taking up unpopular positions and getting attacked by critics. I donate a major quantity of gross sales to nonprofit teams — none of it earmarked — to advance particular person and public well being by encouraging folks to take management of their well being and defend their freedom to do this.
Customers have huge energy if they’ve the data and freedom to wield it, and I urge everybody to make knowledgeable selections that enhance their well being and reduce their must depend on pharmaceutical merchandise or medical interventions which have actual dangers and trigger tens of 1000’s of deaths annually, not simply on this nation however in international locations across the world.
The Washington Put up Q&A
Query: Inform us your story, how you bought into medication and pure well being.
Reply: As a toddler I dreamed of turning into an astronaut and started my tutorial research in an engineering program earlier than altering my main to pre-med. I graduated from Chicago Faculty of Osteopathic Drugs in 1982 and have become board licensed in household medication in 1985 earlier than beginning my very own apply.
I reply most of those questions in additional element on this brief video.
Query: What number of merchandise do you promote and the way would you categorize them? What are your hottest merchandise? Why are your merchandise higher than vaccines, as you say in your website?
Reply: There are greater than 100 totally different merchandise at store.mercola.com that embrace nutritional vitamins and dietary supplements, natural fruit and vegetable powders, biodynamic meals, Alaskan seafood, grass fed beef, natural cotton clothes and pet merchandise.
Please present the reference concerning the declare that “my merchandise are higher than vaccines”. That may be a blatantly false and defamatory assertion.
If you’re referring to this video recorded by Dr. Joe Prendergast, he explains why he believes Vitamin D is extra highly effective than any vaccine. I am unable to discover something that resembles your false accusation.
Query: How has your enterprise developed? What had been you promoting within the 90s, mid 2000s, and later? How a lot do your companies make? Within the pure well being house, how massive of a participant are you?
Reply: I began my web site within the late 1990’s to share data with my sufferers and their households. For the primary three years of working the location, I supported the associated fee totally from my medical apply alone and bought no merchandise.
I ultimately realized that didn’t scale nicely as the location grew in recognition. The one lifelike choices had been to both cost for a subscription for the knowledge, settle for promoting, or promote my very own merchandise.
Subscribers wished free data, and I did not need to promote merchandise and companies that I did not belief or consider in – so I formulated, examined, and bought my very own model of merchandise to help the web site.
I’ve round 175 workers. It’s a pretty small enterprise compared to the businesses that make up a majority of the nutraceutical house.
My enterprise makes lower than Jeff Bezos makes whereas shaving.
Query: Do you continue to apply medication/see sufferers and if not, when did you cease working towards medication?
Reply: I finished seeing sufferers in 2009 so I might focus my time on publishing my analysis. As a substitute of serving to tens of 1000’s of individuals in my workplace, I might assist a whole bunch of tens of millions of individuals nationally and internationally. My web site is now printed in 11 languages.
Query: How would you characterize your place on vaccines and the way has it developed, if in any respect?
Reply: I consider very strongly within the precept of knowledgeable consent and am deeply involved concerning the huge quantities of cash spent by pharmaceutical corporations to foyer federal and state legislatures. The deep conflicts of curiosity that exist due to public-private enterprise partnerships between drug firm giants and federal well being businesses has created a revolving door that’s progressively eroding shopper security.
I don’t consider in a one-size-fits-all-cradle-to-grave mandated use of liability-free vaccines as a result of it violates particular person freedoms and eliminates well being care selections. I feel medical insurance policies that rely nearly completely on indiscriminate use of prescribed drugs and vaccines by kids and adults doesn’t shield particular person or public well being.
The revolving door between prime authorities well being officers and pharmaceutical corporations is especially disturbing. Gottlieb goes to Pfizer, Gerberding goes to Merck – the checklist goes on and on.
The CDC itself deceives the general public by presenting disclaimers that erroneously declare no monetary conflicts of curiosity whereas receiving tens of millions of dollars from pharmaceutical corporations.
The pharmaceutical selections we make should stay free from any legally mandated social penalties. The pharmaceutical and pesticide industries function primarily in the identical means as felony organizations exploiting folks for monetary acquire. The mass media is kind of pleasant to speaking factors and really protecting of its advertisers and promoting cash.
The pharmaceutical corporations spend billions of dollars yearly promoting by way of media.
Query: We perceive that you simply reached out to Barbara Loe Fisher round 2007/2008 to work together with her. What prompted you to take action? Tax data present you have given round $400,000 a 12 months to the Nationwide Vaccine Data Heart — why did you determine to do that and what do you see because the profit for Mercola.com?
Reply: I personally reached out to NVIC over a decade in the past as a result of they produce correct, referenced data and are fully aligned with my philosophical beliefs.
I can strongly guarantee you that being an adversary to highly effective industries will not be a constructive for a enterprise like mine being focused with main discrediting campaigns and the leveraging of regulatory businesses, which is only a small a part of the associated fee required to interact in these battles.
Query: Tax data additionally present you fund the Natural Client Affiliation and others. Are you able to inform us why you determined to fund these teams. Are you able to additionally inform us extra about what the Well being Liberty Coalition does and why you based it?
Reply: I help the Natural Customers Affiliation due to their dedication to bettering meals & agriculture. Good well being requires good meals, however we have polluted many of the earth’s water and depleted a lot of the soils. Agriculture consolidation and management is threatening the very existence of farmers, and the fertilizer / pesticide treadmill the present processed meals enterprise depends upon is poisonous and unsustainable.
The pesticide is more and more damaging our well being and deceiving folks, extending their tentacles into scientific journals and media.
A Washington Put up columnist’s relationship has not too long ago been uncovered as a part of a strategic relationship for the agrichemical enterprise.
Regeneration Worldwide is an initiative I help by way of the OCA.
The entire organizations I help may be discovered within the footer of my web site. They’re all devoted to defending particular person rights, the setting, and bettering well being by serving to eradicate limitations that and authorities have created to attain optimum well being. All contributions are within the type of unrestricted grants. I consider within the mission of those organizations and ask for nothing in return.
Well being Liberty was began as a means for non-profits working to empower folks with data to community and share data. There may be huge social engineering occurring, particularly by the technofascists of Silicon Valley – and I consider that all the things that may be achieved needs to be achieved to empower people to take management of their well being.
Query: Has NVIC helped your enterprise? In that case, what are the examples?
Reply: As said beforehand, for greater than a decade I’ve financially supported the work of the Nationwide Vaccine Data Heart, a charitable group based by dad and mom of vaccine injured kids in 1982 to forestall vaccine accidents and deaths by way of public schooling. I consider of their mission and their sturdy protection of civil liberties and human rights, together with the human proper to train knowledgeable consent to medical procedures or use of pharmaceutical merchandise like vaccines which have dangers. The knowledge they publish is nicely researched and helps folks make educated vaccine selections, which is what everybody needs to be doing.
Publicly supporting non-profits like NVIC which are being attacked by the media for criticizing drug corporations, authorities well being businesses and medical commerce associations for not doing their jobs with regards to defending kids’s well being doesn’t assist my enterprise, however it’s the proper factor to do.
Query: You inform folks to not get vaccinated and to take Vitamin D as an alternative. However you additionally promote Vitamin D. How can folks belief your motives and your credibility?
Reply: I inform folks to grow to be knowledgeable and make their very own selections. I personally would by no means take the influenza vaccine. Getting a flu shot yearly could make some folks extra inclined to influenza-like sickness attributable to different respiratory viral infections, in addition to improve dangers for influenza. As well as, the effectiveness of influenza vaccine has been lower than 50% throughout the previous decade.
I get my vitamin D from managed publicity to the solar, as I inform everybody to do, as a result of a vitamin D complement is inferior to pure sunshine. Nevertheless, particularly for individuals who stay in northern latitudes, vitamin D dietary supplements will help preserve acceptable vitamin D ranges.
Optimizing your vitamin D ranges to between 40-60 ng/ml is without doubt one of the finest methods to enhance immune system perform.
Almost yearly the flu vaccine is promoted for the aged as a life-saving drug and but yearly it’s a failure for these most weak to influenza:
Flu vaccine damage is without doubt one of the most generally reported vaccine accidents, together with within the federal vaccine damage compensation program that has awarded greater than $four billion to vaccine injured kids and adults since 1988. It needs to be famous that the producers of flu vaccine, just like the producers of all vaccines licensed, advisable and mandated within the U.S., shouldn’t have any legal responsibility in civil court docket when a toddler or grownup suffers a vaccine response that may completely harm well being and even trigger loss of life.
You’ll be able to learn extra about my place on influenza vaccines right here. Who can folks belief? It is as much as every one among us to determine who to belief and what to do about how we need to keep nicely. That’s the level – folks ought to have the liberty to decide on.
Query: How do you reply to critics saying that you simply’re profiting off of dangerous medical recommendation?
Reply: It takes many years earlier than what’s criticized at present turns into customary therapy of care sooner or later. I have been criticized for my positions on synthetic sweeteners, acceptable sunshine publicity, extreme mammograms, glyphosate, ketogenic diets, EMF’s, ldl cholesterol, eggs, statins, Vioxx – the checklist goes on and on. Over time, my positions have been confirmed right as a rule.
The apply of drugs should change. Many present medical insurance policies and practices are present process scrutiny by each the general public and critics contained in the medical occupation and can ultimately be discarded, however the pharmaceutical will proceed to work to silence the critics by way of smear campaigns and monetary lobbying to persuade legislators that nothing ought to change to allow them to shield market share.
My intent is to empower people to take again their well being. I defend freedom and autonomy. I consider that folks needs to be allowed to establish and entry easy, cheap and protected alternate options to the traditional medical system, which is contributing to the untimely loss of life of tens of millions and is inflicting pointless ache and struggling in nice half as a result of multinational companies need to improve their revenues.
It has been my expertise and commentary that these multinational companies and oligarchs will do all the things of their energy to regulate the folks, management the meals, the drugs and authorities applications to allow them to additionally management the cash.
Query: State and federal regulators have warned you about false and deceptive claims in your website about your merchandise. How do you reply to these prices?
Reply: The warning associated to thermography was based mostly on political strain from the vastly oversold, multibillion greenback mammography .
I have been speaking about this for practically 20 years. This reality has grow to be extra widely known.
The FTC settlement concerning my views on UVB well being advantages was based mostly on criticisms and political strain from the American Academy of Dermatology and a place taken by a dermatologist Surgeon Common, who had developed an motion plan focusing on UVB advocates. The AAD & Surgeon Common are incorrect and offering harmful recommendation by saying there isn’t a protected stage of solar publicity for any pores and skin kind.
I consider it’s a grave error for the American Academy of Dermatology to suggest that folks fully keep away from sunshine as a result of UVB is instrumental to producing Vitamin D. There’s a giant that directs everybody of all pores and skin tones to keep away from the solar – but indoor staff find yourself with probably the most pores and skin cancers due to this entire misunderstanding of the significance of accountable UVB publicity. Others are starting to acknowledge this mistaken recommendation as nicely.
Query: We observed you could have moved your basis and your companies to Florida. What is the motive for that? We additionally observed you have created a brand new basis known as the Mangrove Pines Farm Basis — are you able to inform us about that and your plans for it?
Reply: I moved the enterprise to Florida as a result of it provided the chance for a greater life-style match for the corporate. Avoiding Chicago ‘s harsh winters has important benefits for well being, and the state of Illinois has severe monetary issues that make it a really difficult setting for small and medium-sized companies.
The Mangrove Pines Farm Basis is in growth and it’ll grow to be an academic non-profit to show folks learn how to develop their very own meals regeneratively, with out artificial fertilizers or pesticides.
