Thinking back to all the different mass shooting cases we’ve covered over the years, you may have noticed that there almost always seems to be one common denominator: the use of psychotropic medications by the perpetrators. Brain-altering antidepressant drugs are so often linked to cases of extreme violence these days that these drug-induced stupors, if you will, have been officially pathologized under the name “akathisia.”

In Greek, the term literally means “inability to sit,” and is a neuropsychiatric syndrome characterized by “subjective and objective psychomotor restlessness,” according to Dr. Fernando Espi Forcen, M.D., a Fellow of Psychosomatic Medicine at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Put simply, akathisia is an unusually altered state of mind that, in some extreme cases, can cause an individual to become preoccupied with thoughts of violence, whether against himself or someone else.

The ongoing trial of Richard Henry Bain is a great example of how akathisia is gaining legal precedence as a trigger of violent crime. Though he’s being accused of first-degree murder in the infamous election night shooting in Quebec back in 2012, Bain’s lawyers say that his use of antidepressant drugs is to blame for the crime, and thus Bain shouldn’t be held legally liable.

Whether or not this is a valid defense is up to the judge in this particular case to decide. But the fact that akathisia is now a “thing” in the realm of the criminal justice system begs the question: what exactly is it? And more precisely, how is it possible for antidepressant drugs to so alter someone’s state of mind that he becomes unable to control a sudden urge to harm himself or others?

Some people metabolize drugs differently, more quickly than others

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) admitted back in 2004 that SSRIs, SNRIs and other “new generation” antidepressants like the kind Bain was using can, in fact, worsen depression symptoms, and in some cases cause users to become suicidal or homicidal. The agency three years later issued a “Black Box” warning for these same antidepressants, suggesting that all users up to age 24 be monitored for extreme side effects including agitation, panic attacks, anxiety, hostility, impulsivity and akathisia.

As to why these drugs do this, researchers say it’s predicated upon a variance in how they’re metabolized by individual users. So-called “ultra-rapid metabolizers,” for instance, absorb the drugs’ active ingredients much more quickly than others, putting them at a higher risk of experiencing wild behavioral and mental fluctuations. There’s also the genetic factor; certain gene variations can precipitate variances in how antidepressant drugs affect users’ brain chemistry.

“Fast-changing levels of psychotropic substances, up or down, can cause behavioural changes as the neurotransmitters in the brain react to reach some equilibrium,” a paper entitled Study 329 explains about the chemical process. “This phenomenon makes starting and stopping medication the most dangerous times for suicide and violence, but both can happen at any time, with stress, provocation, dose change, addition or subtraction of a medication.”

Antidepressants operate within very specific biological pathways, the balances of which can easily be thrown off, depending on a person’s unique biological and genetic makeup. Antidepressants have also been shown to cause long-term brain damage, affecting the intermolecular interactions in such a way as to completely alter brain chemistry, possibly permanently.

Suppose, instead of meeting for three hours with Black Lives Matter leaders…

The President of the United States, seized with some unexplainable attack of conscience, or a drug-induced revelation, stood up in front of television cameras and spoke to the nation and the world about…

The real web that entangles and holds inner cities hostage.

Suppose the President suddenly said:

“My fellow Americans, the first thing you have to know is that, since 1966, when the federal government declared a War on Poverty, it has spent some two trillion dollars, much of it earmarked for the inner cities of America. And now, today, those areas are worse off than ever.

“For various reasons, including massive theft of funds, this War is a total failure.

“Second, the elite march toward Globalism—the control of the planet exercised by a few powerful groups—has purposely sent manufacturing jobs out of America, and out of inner cities, to Third World countries—and one effect has been the massive loss of jobs here.

“Poverty, already a fact of life in inner cities, has spread like wildfire.

“On top of all this, we have seen the expansion of criminal gangs in poverty-stricken urban communities. Violence and fear there is a way of life. And there has never been a comprehensive federal strategy for ridding our cities of this abominable scourge.

“Do you want to know why? Because gangs cooperate with Mexican cartels to distribute street drugs across America. Gangs have been vital cogs in that machine. And the federal government is in the drug business. I should say, certain players in the government, attached to government, above and behind government—bankers, for example—profit greatly from this industry.

“For instance, federal agencies struck a deal with the Sinaloa Cartel years ago, marking out free and open routes between our southern border and several US hub cities. Sinaloa does uninterrupted trafficking along those routes. No significant arrests are made. No interventions occur.

“In return for this accommodation, Sinaloa passes along actionable intelligence on its rival cartels, and our federal agencies can and do make arrests and seizures in those cases.

“Wiping out the American gang scourge would put a crimp in the permitted drug business, and therefore, those groups are left in place. We, the government, pretend these gangs are little more than ‘disadvantaged youth’ who need an opportunity to fulfill themselves. We do everything in our power to frame the problem in terms of sociological causes—and we purposely avoid the stark fact that these boys and men commit terrible crimes and hold inner cities hostage by creating and sustaining a climate of fear and danger and drug addiction.

“In truth, police brutality accounts for a very small fraction of lives lost in those inner city communities.

“Meanwhile, the relatively few citizens of inner cities who do manage, against heavy odds, to launch successful local businesses, are never deployed to spearhead and teach their neighbors how to achieve that kind of remarkable success. We may pin on a badge, or present a plaque, or stage a photo op, but we never deploy federal money to make these authentic business leaders into long-term instructors in the art they have mastered. That is tragic.

“Do you want to talk about cooperation? In several American inner cities, local heroes have created urban farms. Residents of all ages learn to grow their own food. Their own fresh, clean food. What a magnificent achievement. With an infinitesimal fraction of the federal money we have wastefully dumped into the War on Poverty, we could have these pioneers start up a hundred, a thousand, ten thousand expansive urban farms across America. —Food grown by the people who will eat it. This project alone would revolutionize life in those places. Why aren’t we doing it? Why can’t government find these private citizens who are already tremendous problem solvers and empower them to solve more problem, instead of backing tired old race-baiting blowhards?

“I’ll tell you why. The government is a jealous master. It wants to define, control, and solve problems. It doesn’t really matter whether the problems are overcome, as long as government is in charge. That is a hideous fact of life, and we have to change it. Our wasteful, incompetent, and in some cases, criminal federal programs have to be sidetracked and stopped. They are runaway trains, and they must be led to terminals and parked.

Casting Call For Extras, Actors During Cleveland RNC Violence

“Here’s your chance to take to the streets and protest for a cause you believe in. Many thousands will be at your side. When the violence hits, you can run, go crazy, and hopefully escape police batons, water cannons, and flying bullets…”

This isn’t one company looking for actors and extras to protest against Trump in the streets of Cleveland, during the Republican National Convention next week. This is much bigger.

This is a year-long recruitment drive for extras.

You can’t have violence from just a few lone individuals on a quiet street in a city. It doesn’t play well for the media.

No, you need lots of extras and dupes and know-nothings to be there—people who commit no violence themselves, but give the impression of supporting it, people the cops can attack when the going gets nasty, people who will scream and scatter and run in every direction and throw trash and destroy cars. You need a full-blown theatrical production. For the news.

So we’ve had the US Attorney General, the US President, and Hillary Clinton meeting with Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders. We’ve had major media promoting BLM. We’re seeing violent street protests against police violence across the country, and we’re seeing violence against the police.

This pumps up recruiting for the RNC Cleveland Convention next week, in a city where local officials seemed to have just awakened to the scope of the problem they’re going to face. A few months ago, they put in an order for a several hundred bicycles for cops. Cops on bikes? Really? How about cardboard barriers, too, and free marshmallows?

On the one hand, in Cleveland, we have DHS and FBI and Secret Service officers visiting the homes of “activists,” asking them what their plans are for the Convention—a clear attempt at intimidating them. On the other hand, city officials are still trying, at this late date, to work out arrangements with other cities, so policemen can be brought in to ramp up security.

Clearly, there are agent provocateurs of various persuasions, blending in and among the BLM and pro-immigration groups. These agents would commit the incendiary violence. They would strike the match. To say they are a rerun of the old FBI Cointelpro operation is an oversimplification. The infiltrators could come from several different groups with different ideologies and agendas—but initiating violence is the common denominator.

There is also no telling what kind of blanket the DHS, FBI, and Secret Service are going to try to throw over Cleveland. Is it going to be intentionally light and tattered, to give the violence a chance to spread? Are emergency calls from the mayor of the city, to the governor, going to be answered casually, and with intentional delays? After all, the governor of Ohio is John Kasich, a Republican who ran against Donald Trump for the nomination and despises him. Will Kasich send in state-guard troops right away, or will he hold back? Will the feds, who are supporting Hillary, slow-play the arrival of their forces?

Judging from the way the city government of Cleveland has handled its budget problems over the years, as the city has sunk into further debt and poverty, there is no reason to expect local security for the Convention to be anywhere near sensible or adequate.

Meanwhile, the recruiting for extras and actors continues. People-protestors are needed in the streets. People who avidly support: Bernie Sanders, BLM, unlimited immigration, gender equality, politically correct speech, gun control, the upcoming Globalist trade treaties, more jobs leaving America, the federalization of polices forces, the manufacture of running shoes overseas in slave-labor camps, love and unity, it takes a village, free cell phones, free tuition at illiterate colleges, Hobbits, Harry Potter, the EU, cheap lead-based imports from China, the full CDC schedule of vaccines, more chewing gum for the masses, and the imminent landing of humane messiahs from Andromeda.

Climb on board. Fill out the crowds in Cleveland next week. Be there. Be an extra. Be an actor when the violence begins. Feel the surge of adrenaline.

You’re a dupe.

You’re there because somebody is willing to risk your life in the service of a greater cause: creating chaos, and eventually coming in behind it to install order that sucks away rights and freedoms from everyone. Exactly what you want, right?

Globalists Are Pitting Blacks Against Whites In America To Incite A Race War – Here’s How We Can Win Together By Refusing To Be Manipulated Into Hatred & Rage

Race wars

July 11, 2016

This isn’t a long article. It’s a short piece put together after three days of contemplation on the insanity and violence that has now exploded across America. The situation is so severe that I haven’t been able to think about much else.

I’m convinced that the events in Dallas were designed to stoke a race war across America, setting the stage for martial law, nationwide gun confiscations and globalist control of the nation. As this Associated Press article explains, it now appears that militant black terrorists are being “directed by militant groups” that control the race war narrative.

That narrative is poison to us all. The purpose of executing five police officers in Dallas is not specifically to kill white people, but to invoke white rage and hatred toward blacks and the Black Lives Matter movement — an emotional tinder box ready to be manipulated by the globalist-controlled media to steer America into a state of open, bloody, civil war.

Civil war does not help anyone except for the globalists. They feed off violence and chaos because it creates the justification for totalitarian government control over society. Obama has already begun this process by demanding that the Dallas Police Department now surrender to federal control. This federalization of local police is a crucial step in the executive takeover of the country by anti-American operatives who have already taken over the White House. Their ultimate goal is to DESTROY America as we know it today; OCCUPY the territory of America; CRIMINALIZE all those who oppose the dictatorial regime in power and DEMAND absolute obedience to globalist rule (which nullifies the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights).

The point of televising acts of extreme violence is to pollute your mind with hatred and vengeance

If we respond to violence with more violence, then the globalist manipulators win. That is their goal: To plant hatred and rage in our minds and hope we act on it to tear each other part in bloody street battles. The more we give in to that hatred and rage, the more the corrupt establishment wins (and even grows its power).

That’s why it is crucial that we must not escalate this violence. If blacks are shooting whites, and then whites respond by executing blacks, we all spiral into open insurrection and deadly chaos. There are no winners in a bloody civil war… only countless victims.

This does not mean we should not seek to arrest and prosecute those who violate the law and participate in such violent acts. Active promoters of violence on the radical left must be brought to justice to halt their continued attempts to spill blood on our streets. Just as important, we as a nation must sharply enhance our respect for law enforcement officers who are the last line of defense between our families and total lawlessness in society.

We must also show far greater respect for local cops

Among cops, a running joke is that “police brutality” is any time a cop wins a fight with a criminal thug who’s trying to kill him. We must remember that police officers deal with the most brutal, violent and mentally ill elements of our society. They work under near impossible conditions and get almost zero recognition for jobs well done. They deserve our thanks, not our condemnation. The Black Lives Matter movement is wrong to condemn all cops for the actions of the few, just as Obama is wrong to condemn all gun owners for the actions of those very few who use them to commit violence.

Any person who thinks cops are bad should imagine trying to survive just 72 hours if all the cops went on a nationwide strike. A whole lot of citizens wouldn’t survive those 72 hours, and they’d be begging for the men and women in blue to return to their jobs and make the streets safer once again. (I’m actually wondering if cops might organize a nationwide 72-hour strike to demonstrate this very point… every major city would collapse into total chaos within hours.)

Black Lives Matter is a globalist-controlled, anti-American HATE group whose purpose is to invoke and instigate racial hatred across America

In refusing to participate in the escalation of violence, it’s also crucial to understand where that violence is coming from. BLM is funded by George Soros and other globalists. Its purpose is to instigate widespread racial hatred while disrupting society from coast to coast. The end game of this agenda is to cause America to collapse into a civil war from which globalists can assert totalitarian control via martial law to “reestablish order.”

The way this will be accomplished is by carrying out race-based executions that are highly visible and extremely bloody, evoking rage and vengeance by those who share the same race or skin color as the victims. Yet this race war will ultimately be waged against people of all colors. Some attacks will target whites. Others will target blacks. Still others may target Latinos. What they all have in common is that they are deliberately planned and carried out to stir up hatred, rage and bloodshed. They are part of an actual conspiracy plot to pit the races of America against each other in the hope that society will collapse into such chaos that nationwide martial law is demanded. (And voila! Suddenly the November elections could be put on hold, too!)

We the People must not allow ourselves to be caught up in this emotional trap. We must recognize these actions for what they are: contrived false flag operations that are carried out for an insidious cultural engineering purpose: to get Americans screaming for martial law and nationwide gun confiscations. That is the end goal of all this, and the globalists don’t care how many innocent people have to die to achieve their goal.

For you and me, our responsibility in all this is to call for peace, calm and solidarity among people of all colors and cultures to denounce the globalists, denounce the criminal occupiers of the White House and denounce those who would try to destroy our constitutional liberties in the name of “security.”

If we stand firm in our awareness of how this is all contrived and manipulated to evoke a public outcry — problem, reaction, solution — then we have a real chance to resist the march toward tyranny that has now been planned for America.

ACTION ITEMS:

1) Do NOT participate in acts of hatred or violence against anyone.

2) REALIZE that nobody wins if our society descends into lawlessness and chaos.

3) Condemn all those who incite violence against the police, and recognize the important role that local cops play in keeping our communities safe from violent elements.

4) TEACH others how the race wars are all designed to control the masses via emotional manipulation.

YOU ARE BEING PLAYED. It is easy to go along with it and ride the wave of anger against those who commit mass murder on our streets. It takes far more mental discipline, however, to see the bigger picture and realize this is really a war being waged by the globalists against ALL people of America, regardless of their race or color.

The globalists win if they can convince whites that blacks are their enemy (and vice-versa). They lose if we wake up and realize it’s actually the globalists who are our common enemy.

STUDY: Long Term Use Of Xanax, Valium, Klonopin & Other Psychoactives May Lead o Cancer

Psych meds

Source: NaturalNews.com
Jennifer Lea Reynolds
March 7, 2016

Benzodiazepines (BZDs), the group of central nervous system depressants known to create feelings of calm, sleep and drowsiness, are under fire for findings that suggest they may lead to cancer. This means that the likes of Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, and a host of other psychoactives, are playing a role in chipping away at people’s health, putting them at risk for one of the most life-threatening diseases around.

The finding comes from experts who engaged in a longitudinal population-based case-control study in which information was assessed from the Taiwan National Health Insurance database. The goal was to determine any association between use of BZDs and cancer risk in people who were 20 years of age or older.

Unsurprisingly, but still terribly saddening, they found that the answer was a very likely “yes.”

The psych med-cancer link

According to the published study entitled, Is Long-term Use of Benzodiazepine a Risk for Cancer?, there’s a correlation between BZDs and specific cancers. The study notes that it was observed “… that benzodiazepines exposure increased the overall cancer risk up to 21%, specifically for brain 98%, colorectal 25%, lung 10%, esophagus 59%, prostate 36%, bladder 39%, liver 18%, pancreas 41% and other cancers 27%.”

While they suggest that, “therapeutic effectiveness of BZDs should be monitored closely for long-term users” in order to fully understand the scope of the implications, the experts don’t shy away from the likelihood that the use of such drugs poses cancer-causing threats. They write that “… we assume that risk of cancers could be associated with individual BZD, which might have some relationship only with particular cancers etiology need to be identified.”

The mind-altering drugs most of us don’t need, but are prescribed anyway

Unfortunately, many of us are walking around with a variety of psychoactives in our systems, popping pills like it’s going out of style. In fact, it’s all part of a vicious cycle in which doctors prescribe psych meds to people who – in many cases – don’t even need them. At the same time, such medical experts enjoy the perks that come with Big Pharma bribes, in the form of cash, decadent meals and fancy vacations.

So, while your health is put in jeopardy, some doctors literally laugh all the way to the bank. It’s of grave concern that this behavior continues; doctors who do this are playing a role in the approximately 5 million deaths that have occurred in the West just in the past decade alone – and it’s all due to unnecessarily prescribing psych medications to people who don’t really need them in the first place.

Not only are such drugs linked to certain cancers, as the aforementioned study shows, but they’re also associated with suicides and other worrisome issues.

In addition to cancer, psych meds linked to suicides, mass shootings

The British Medical Journal found that antidepressant drugs increase the risk of suicide and aggressive behavior; although this was especially so in people under the age of 18, the finding involved all age groups. A total of 70 trials were assessed to examine the safety and effectiveness of the most common antidepressants available to consumers, and it was found that such medications put the under-18 age group at double the risk of suicide.

Use of BZDs is even linked to the surge in mass shootings that seem to be occurring just about every other day. Surely, it’s not just a coincidence that the amount of prescriptions tripled between 1996 and 2013, while the number of overdoses quadrupled – quadrupled! – during that same time. What else has been happening though the years? You guessed it – a ridiculous number of mass shootings and acts of violence, in which it’s often discovered that the person or people involved were taking mind-altering psych meds.
