    These ‘End-Of-Life Doulas’ Are Guiding People Peacefully To Their Death

    When we typically hear the term doula, we either think ‘what the heck is that?’, or we may already know that a doula is a trained professional who assists in a more natural process of childbirth, usually in the home. So essentially, a ‘death doula’ is virtually the opposite: someone who assists a person who has a terminal illness, as well as helping that person’s friends, family members and even animals come to terms with the fast approaching morality that we will all face one day. In the world of mainstream medicine, doctors themselves don’t offer much to people who are on ... Read More

    Image copyright Getty Images Image caption Investments that have caused deforestation in the Amazon have been linked to offshore tax havens Deforestation in the Amazon and widespread illegal fishing have both been linked to tax havens, according to a new study.Some 68% of the investments tracked in the Amazon came from companies based in countries where no tax is paid.

    Information Warfare & Alex Jones: Journalistic Responsibility In A Post-Truth Era

    In our quest for truth, we all have intuitions, hunches, and personal insights that we may not be able to prove.  Whether it’s spiritual premonitions, conspiracy theories, or superstitious synchronicity, our conscious thought is an explorer in a universe of ideas, possibilities, and theories.  However, if there is no filter in place to bring form and meaning to these free-flowing ideas, the truth quickly becomes whatever we want it to be; feelings and opinions become just as “true” as verifiable, well-researched facts. The revolutionary ideas that produced the American experiment enshrining the Enlightenment principle of freedom of expression has produced ... Read More

    Mark Crispin Miller, a Professor of Media Studies at New York University, is best known for his analysis of U.S. Election fraud and the overall deception and obfuscation of truth perpetrated by those at the top of the power pyramid. He characterizes the books that serve the truth about American history, politics, war, economics, and media as ‘an embarrassment of riches,’ but his aim is to sift through all these books and find the ones that most pressingly need to be heard about, known, and widely read. He speaks about why these books, many of which are ‘out of print,’ ... Read More

    Who Is Q? Mainstream Media Crashes The Party To Take Control Of The Narrative

    • Who is Q?
    If you don’t have a clue, then you are one of the people that the mainstream media is targeting to make sure you get their narrative on the subject first. But let’s be frank here. Our mainstream friends never wanted to cover the Q-Anon phenomena. Their idea was to not dignify the movement with any recognition, so as not to bring any more attention to it. But that was before Trump rallies across the country started showing a growing number of supporters sporting Q shirts and posters. The Deep State must have figured that not saying something ...

    Hollywood celebrities ripped into the Trump administration’s plans to create a Space Force program, decrying it as everything from a waste of money to a distraction from the Mueller investigation.

    New Physics Theory Questions The Big Bang: How Did Our Universe Really Begin?

    Popular writer and scholar Graham Hancock once said that we’re like a species with amnesia, and it’s true, the origins of the human race, and the universe is supposedly unknown to us. But it’s human nature to question things, and as a result, we’ve developed a few theories that despite being pushed as fact within the mainstream educational realm, they’re not scientifically sound in several ways and actually appear to be very weak. The theory of evolution is one great example, and the big bang is another. The big bang theory suggests that everything in existence results from one event that ... Read More
