Before you start reading, please keep in mind that the only thing we should really be ‘patriotic’ about is planet Earth, and all life on it.
Edward Snowden is one of many whistleblowers to have emerged over the past decade trying to let the world know what is really going on, not only in the United States, but all over the world. Fortunately, for the sake of others and their rights, Snowden has gained the attention of the masses, giving a voice to whistleblowers before him who were largely ignored or ridiculed. You have to understand, it’s very difficult for people to share information that threatens the control structure of the elite. They risk their lives doing what they do.

“The first and most important thing to understand about politics is this: forget Right, Left, Center, socialism, fascism, or democracy. Every government that exists — or ever existed, or ever will exist — is a kleptocracy, meaning ‘rule by thieves.’ Competing ideologies merely provide different excuses to separate the Productive Class from what they produce. If the taxpayer/voters won’t willingly fork over to end poverty, then maybe they’ll cough up to fight drugs or terrorism. Conflicting ideologies, as presently constituted, are nothing more than a cover for what’s really going on, like the colors of competing gangs.” — Author L. Neil Smith
The American kleptocracy (a government ruled by thieves) continues to suck the American people down a rabbit hole into a parallel universe in which the Constitution is meaningless, the government is all-powerful, and the citizenry is powerless to defend itself against government agents who steal, spy, lie, plunder, kill, abuse and generally inflict mayhem and sow madness on everyone and everything in their sphere.

According to a new report in the journal Epidemiology, people who eat a gluten-free diet may actually be at higher risk for exposure to arsenic and mercury.
This is quite concerning considering the growing popularity of the gluten-free diet with a quarter of Americans having gone gluten-free in 2015. That was a 67% increase from 2013.
The cause for the increased risk for arsenic and mercury exposure, however, is not necessarily a result of the gluten-free diet itself. Instead, it appears to be due to the fact that many gluten-free products contain rice flour as a substitute for wheat. Rice has been known to bioaccumulate both arsenic and mercury, as well as other toxic heavy metals, from water, soil or fertilizers.

A recent clinical trial indicates that Hashimoto’s disease, the most common form of hypothyrodism, may be improved by adding only two grams of powdered black seed to your daily diet.
A powerful new randomized clinical trial reveals that the ancient healing food known as nigella sativa (aka “black seed”), once known as the “remedy for everything but death”, may provide an ideal treatment for the autoimmune thyroid condition known as Hashimoto’s disease, which is the most common cause of hypothyroidism.
The new study, published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, evaluated the effects of nigella sativa on patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and in particular, assessed thyroid function, serum Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) – 1, Nesfatin -1 and anthropometric features using a randomized controlled trial.

Let’s get this straight right up front. ‘Om’ chanting is not religious. It may be practiced by Hindus, and even co-opted in yoga classes all over the U.S. and Europe, but every single religion in the world has its own version of Om chanting, which I’ll detail more completely in a moment.
The chanting of ‘Om,’ or more specifically, Au, Oh, and Mmm is a scientifically-backed system of becoming more in touch with the infinite creative energy of the Universe. This isn’t a metaphoric energy, but a real, grab-a-hold-of-it-and-look-it-in-the-eyes energy which is absolutely alive and pulsating through everything.
