What If April's $200 Plunge in the Price of Gold
by Alfred Adask
We gold-bugs like to believe that last April’s, two-day, $200 plunge in the price of “gold” was orchestrated by the Powers That Be (PTB). Therefore, we believe and declare that the price decline was artificial, fraudulent and evidence of a market manipulated by institutions determined to support an illusory value of the paper dollar by suppressing the price of “gold”.
We therefore conclude that the true, free-market price of gold must be much higher than is currently reported. More, we believe the truth will out and therefore the price of gold is inevitably headed higher. We recommend that you hold whatever gold you have, purchase more when you have the opportunity, and wait for the inevitable happy days when the price of gold skyrockets.
• But what if we’re wrong?
What if the “April Plunge” was not the result of fraudulent market-manipulation but instead a true, free-market determination of the price of “gold”? What would that imply?
Most goldbugs first reaction to the possibility that the $200 plunge was not manipulated is sputtering disbelief: “Why . . . why . . . that’s impossible! The price of ‘gold’ just couldn’t fall $200 in two days without manipulation! Right?!”
Q: Why should goldbugs be so sure that it’s “impossible” for the price of “gold” to fall $200 in just two days except by market manipulation?
A: Because if gold can fall $200 in two days (and $500 in 20 months) in a free (unmanipulated) market, then we goldbugs are in big trouble. Much of our confidence in gold’s “fundamentals” and long-term prospects may be unjustified and our investments in gold are likely to fall further. If there’s no market manipulation, we may lose our assets.
• I’m convinced that market manipulation explains April’s $200 plunge in the price of gold.
But let’s suppose I’m mistaken. Let’s assume that the April Plunge was precipitated, fair-and-square, by an unmanipulated, free market for gold.
What would that imply?
Well, before we could answer that question, we’d have to define our terms. I.e., what meaning should we attach to the word “gold”?
There may be several possible meanings for “gold,” but there are only two fundamental and distinctly different definitions that are relevant to the April Plunge: “paper-gold” and “physical-gold”.
“Physical-gold,” of course, is the actual metal. It cannot be “spun out of thin air”.
“Paper-gold” refers to paper certificates that are accepted as a substitute for physical-gold. Paper-gold can be spun out of thin air and is presumed to be “as good as (physical) gold” so long as it can be redeemed for physical-gold.
When investors talk about “gold,” they usually confuse the terms “paper-gold” and “physical-gold”. By failing to distinguish between those terms, we’ve come to see them as synonymous. Therefore, investors usually suppose that whenever someone says “gold,” they’re talking about physical-gold when, in fact, that reference may be to paper-gold.
For example, soon after the April Plunge, billionaire George Soros declared that “gold” had lost its standing as a “safe haven” and investors were fleeing to other investment vehicles. Goldbugs sputtered and declared Soros to be a fool or a liar. (How could anyone be dumb enough to say gold was no longer a “safe haven”?!) For 3,000 years, investors have found no earthly “safe haven” that’s superior to gold! It’s blasphemy for Soros to declare otherwise! Let’s excommunicate the lying s.o.b. from the Church of the Holy Goldbugs!
But, on reflection, perhaps Soros was right. Maybe (depending on your choice of definitions), it’s true that “gold” is no longer a “safe haven” for investors.
How can that be?
Easy. When Soros said that “gold” was no longer a “safe haven,” he didn’t specify whether he meant “paper-gold” or “physical-gold”—he just said “gold”. Perhaps that lack of specificity was simply an oversight by Mr. Soros. Or, maybe it was Soros’ intent to bamboozle the masses who he must’ve known would presume that he meant “physical gold” when he said “gold”.
But, in fact, Soros was telling the truth that “gold” was no longer a “safe haven” and investors were “fleeing”. Or, at least, he was telling the truth if he was referring to “paper-gold”.
US gold markets are believed to trade 99 ounces of paper-gold for each ounce traded in physical-gold. Because of that huge disparity, the US “gold” markets actually measure the price of paper-gold rather than physical-gold. The price of physical-gold is only incidentally related to the price of paper-gold.
Until just recently, American investors have routinely, but mistakenly, presumed that the prices of paper-gold and physical-gold to be identical. However, in the context of the April Plunge investors began to appreciate the distinction between paper- and physical-gold.
As a result, Soros was right to say that investors were fleeing from “gold”. But investors weren’t fleeing physical-gold, they were fleeing paper-gold and thus, the price of paper-gold was falling in the paper-gold markets. More, many investors who fled from paper-gold flocked to physical-gold.
The April Plunge only proved that paper-gold was no longer a “safe haven” for investors.
Therefore, the price of “paper gold” (which dominates and controls the American and English gold markets) fell $200 in the April Plunge. But, because we don’t have a market the deals exclusively in physical-gold, it’s less obvious what happened to the price of physical-gold.
Goldbugs who didn’t recognize the distinction between paper-gold and physical-gold tended to panic. They believed that a sudden fall in the price of paper-gold (as measured on gold markets) equated to a fall in the price of physical-gold (for which there is no public market). That was a mistake.
The proof of that mistake was seen in the global increase in demand for physical-gold. The price of “gold” fell $200 and nations around the world bought hundreds more tons of “gold”. Some dealers reported 50 buyers for every seller. In the midst of falling prices, we should’ve seen at least as many sellers as buyers. The 50 buyers to 1 seller ratio suggested an apparent contradiction that might be hard to explain—unless we defined our terms to recognize that the $200 price decline applied to paper-gold while the increased demand applied to physical-gold.
• If the April Plunge was a true, unmanipulated determination of price in the free market, then we’ve just witnessed an event fundamentally identical to those that caused President Nixon to close the “gold window” in A.D. 1971.
In A.D. 1933, the US government removed gold from domestic circulation. But, curiously, the gov-co also increased the price of gold from $20/ounce to $35/ounce in 1934.
Q: Why increase the price of gold if gold was no longer in circulation in this country?
A: Largely because paper dollars were still in circulation in foreign countries. These paper dollars were still redeemable in gold at the rate of 35 foreign-held, paper dollars for one ounce of physical gold. The American people couldn’t redeem their paper dollars for gold, but foreign governments could. So long as foreign governments could redeem US paper dollars with US physical gold, paper dollars were deemed to be “good as gold”.
More, so long as foreign governments had confidence that their paper dollars could be redeemed for physical gold, most governments didn’t bother to actually redeem those paper dollars.
Being presumed to be “good as (physical) gold,” people around the world wanted and “demanded” paper dollars. That demand gave the paper dollar a perceived value that was inconsistent with reality. The US gov-co could therefore “spin” paper dollars “out of thin air” and spend them overseas as if they were gold.
Our government wanted to maintain the illusion that that the paper dollar was much “stronger” and more valuable than it really was. Therefore, it set the “official” price of gold at $35/ounce in order to suppress the true, free market price of physical-gold and thereby exaggerate the perceived value of the paper dollar.
In the later 1960s, French President Charles De Gaulle (and others) perceived the fraud inherent in paper dollars. De Gaulle realized that a true, free-market price of gold (as denominated in paper dollars) must be much higher than the US “official” price of $35/ounce. That meant the paper dollar was significantly over-valued and physical gold was significantly underpriced.
Sensing the US government’s monetary deception, President De Gaulle lost confidence in the paper dollar. Other nations followed De Gaulle’s lead. De Gaulle bet that the free market would prevail over US government monetary decrees and manipulation. De Gaulle therefore determined to redeem every last paper dollar he could find for physical gold at the give-away price of $35/ounce.
As a result, the US Treasury’s supply of physical gold declined dramatically. President Nixon realized that if the US continued to redeem paper dollars with physical gold at $35/ounce, America’s gold reserves would soon be exhausted.
In essence, there was a ruinous “bank run” on the US Treasury’s supply of gold. Nixon stopped that “bank run” by closing the “gold window”. He refused to redeem any more foreign-held paper dollars with physical-gold.
Result? In the next four years, the free market price of physical-gold shot up 400% from $35/ounce to $175. Conversely, the purchasing power of the paper dollar (as measured in physical gold) fell by 75%. De Gaulle’s argument that physical-gold had been hugely underpriced and paper dollars significantly overvalued was vindicated. The free market prevailed over government’s price manipulation. Big time.
• Today, in the aftermath of the April Plunge, we’re seeing a similar event. Just as De Gaulle tried to “flee” paper-dollars by spending them to buy all the physical-gold he could find at $35/ounce, the nations of the world are currently fleeing from paper-gold to buy all the physical-gold they can find for $1,400/ounce. Once again, the nations of the world realize that paper-gold (as determined by US and British gold markets) is hugely overpriced while physical-gold is hugely undervalued. For sophisticated investors, that disparity constitutes an irresistible signal to buy, buy, buy—physical-gold.
Sophisticated investors understand that the April Plunge was not cause for panic but for celebration. Just as De Gaulle must’ve celebrated being able to buy an ounce of US physical-gold for just 35 paper dollars, China, India and others are currently celebrating their ability to purchase physical-gold of US markets for the paper-gold price of less than $1,400 per ounce.
This celebration by foreign governments, central banks, institutions and investors won’t end until:
1) All of the physical-gold owned by the US and British paper-gold markets is sold and exhausted and paper-gold can no longer be redeemed with physical-gold;
2) The US and British paper-gold markets close their “gold window” and refuse to continue redeeming their paper-gold certificates with physical gold; or,
3) The price of paper-gold rises so high that foreign investors no longer view the dollar as overvalued and physical-gold as underpriced. If such increase in the price of paper-gold occurred, the paper-gold certificates would once again be deemed “good as (physical) gold” and the demand to redeem cheap paper-gold with expensive physical-gold would slow or stop.
If the paper-gold markets refuse to redeem paper-gold certificates with physical-gold, those markets will cease to exist. Paper-gold can only be sold so long as it’s presumed to be “as good as” (redeemable in) physical-gold. Once the presumed redeemability of paper-gold ends, paper-gold and paper-gold markets must die.
If the paper-gold markets perish, we can expect to see the emergence of a free market for physical-gold. If the 1971, free-market price increase in physical-gold seen after Nixon closed the “gold window” is any indication—once today’s paper-gold markets stop redeeming with physical-gold, we can reasonably expect the price of physical gold to jump by something like 400% in four years or less. (That could be from, say, $1,400 to, say, $7,000.)
If, on the other hand, the paper-gold markets want to survive, they’ll have to increase the price of paper-gold enough to convince global investors that paper-gold is again “as good as” physical-gold because the prices of paper- and physical-gold are nearly identical. If that happened, I wouldn’t expect the price of physical gold to increase by 400% in four years, but it could easily double and might do so in a relatively short period of time.
Either way—free market or manipulated market—the price of physical-gold should rise significantly in the near future.
• In general, there are two possible explanations for the April Plunge: 1) It was caused by the manipulated market; or, 2) it was caused by the free market.
If April’s $200 plunge was caused by overt market manipulation, then the surprising global increase in demand for physical-gold should’ve adversely impacted the manipulators. I.e., by driving the price of paper-gold down, the manipulators must’ve been forced to sacrifice a lot of their own physical-gold—all for the sake of maintaining the illusion (the lie) that the paper-dollar still has some significant value.
In theory, the supply of paper-gold is infinite. The PTB can “spin” an endless stream of paper-gold on towards infinity. However, the supply of physical-gold is finite. Thus, the manipulators have only so much of their own physical-gold to use to redeem their paper-gold certificates. When the manipulators’ supplies of physical-gold are exhausted, they’re out of business; the paper-gold market dies; and the price of physical-gold soars.
In the alternative,
If the April Plunge was caused by true, unmanipulated, free-market forces, then the resulting rise in global demand for physical-gold only served to show that it was the price of paper-gold that actually fell. As Mr. Soros implied, paper-gold has lost its stature as a “safe haven” and investors are fleeing from paper-gold and flocking to physical-gold.
We can presume that if the price of paper-gold falls any more, the demand for physical-gold will rise proportionately. If institutions like the US Treasury and/or Federal Reserve are forced to disgorge their physical-gold at reduced, paper-gold prices, they’ll either run out of physical-gold, or close their “gold windows” and refuse to redeem paper-gold with physical-gold.
Either way—free market or manipulated market—the prices of paper-gold and physical-gold are diverging. Inevitably, the price of physical-gold must soar—just as it did after Nixon stopped redeeming paper dollars with physical-gold back in A.D. 1971.
My point is that I don’t care if the April Plunge was caused by a manipulated market or a free market. Either way, the falling price in paper-gold and rising demand for physical-gold tells us that the price of physical-gold is going up. Dramatically.
That rise will begin as soon as it’s clear that paper-gold markets are no longer able or willing to redeem paper-gold certificates with physical-gold.
I expect to see that moment of clarity before the end of this year.

Russia warns Obama: Monsanto
The shocking minutes relating to President Putin’s meeting this past week with US Secretary of State John Kerry reveal the Russian leaders “extreme outrage” over the Obama regimes continued protection of global seed and plant bio-genetic giants Syngenta and Monsanto in the face of a growing “bee apocalypse” that the Kremlin warns “will most certainly” lead to world war.
According to these minutes, released in the Kremlin today by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation (MNRE), Putin was so incensed over the Obama regimes refusal to discuss this grave matter that he refused for three hours to even meet with Kerry, who had traveled to Moscow on a scheduled diplomatic mission, but then relented so as to not cause an even greater rift between these two nations.
At the center of this dispute between Russia and the US, this MNRE report says, is the “undisputed evidence” that a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically related to nicotine, known as neonicotinoids, are destroying our planets bee population, and which if left unchecked could destroy our world’s ability to grow enough food to feed its population.
So grave has this situation become, the MNRE reports, the full European Commission (EC) this past week instituted a two-year precautionary ban (set to begin on 1 December 2013) on these “bee killing” pesticides following the lead of Switzerland, France, Italy, Russia, Slovenia and Ukraine, all of whom had previously banned these most dangerous of genetically altered organisms from being used on the continent.
Two of the most feared neonicotinoids being banned are Actara and Cruiser made by the Swiss global bio-tech seed and pesticide giant Syngenta AG which employs over 26,000 people in over 90 countries and ranks third in total global sales in the commercial agricultural seeds market.
Important to note, this report says, is that Syngenta, along with bio-tech giants Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and DuPont, now control nearly 100% of the global market for genetically modified pesticides, plants and seeds.
Also to note about Syngenta, this report continues, is that in 2012 it was criminally charged in Germany for concealing the fact that its genetically modified corn killed cattle, and settled a class-action lawsuit in the US for $105 million after it was discovered they had contaminated the drinking supply of some 52 million Americans in more than 2,000 water districts with its “gender-bending” herbicide Atrazine.
To how staggeringly frightful this situation is, the MNRE says, can be seen in the report issued this past March by the American Bird Conservancy (ABC) wherein they warned our whole planet is in danger, and as we can, in part, read:
“As part of a study on impacts from the world’s most widely used class of insecticides, nicotine-like chemicals called neonicotinoids, American Bird Conservancy (ABC) has called for a ban on their use as seed treatments and for the suspension of all applications pending an independent review of the products’ effects on birds, terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates, and other wildlife.
“It is clear that these chemicals have the potential to affect entire food chains. The environmental persistence of the neonicotinoids, their propensity for runoff and for groundwater infiltration, and their cumulative and largely irreversible mode of action in invertebrates raise significant environmental concerns,” said Cynthia Palmer, co-author of the report and Pesticides Program Manager for ABC, one of the nation’s leading bird conservation organizations.
ABC commissioned world renowned environmental toxicologist Dr. Pierre Mineau to conduct the research. The 100-page report, “The Impact of the Nation’s Most Widely Used Insecticides on Birds,” reviews 200 studies on neonicotinoids including industry research obtained through the US Freedom of Information Act. The report evaluates the toxicological risk to birds and aquatic systems and includes extensive comparisons with the older pesticides that the neonicotinoids have replaced. The assessment concludes that the neonicotinoids are lethal to birds and to the aquatic systems on which they depend.
“A single corn kernel coated with a neonicotinoid can kill a songbird,” Palmer said. “Even a tiny grain of wheat or canola treated with the oldest neonicotinoid — called imidacloprid — can fatally poison a bird. And as little as 1/10th of a neonicotinoid-coated corn seed per day during egg-laying season is all that is needed to affect reproduction.”
The new report concludes that neonicotinoid contamination levels in both surface- and ground water in the United States and around the world are already beyond the threshold found to kill many aquatic invertebrates.”
Quickly following this damning report, the MRNE says, a large group of group of American beekeepers and environmentalists sued the Obama regime over the continued use of these neonicotinoids stating: “We are taking the EPA to court for its failure to protect bees from pesticides. Despite our best efforts to warn the agency about the problems posed by neonicotinoids, the EPA continued to ignore the clear warning signs of an agricultural system in trouble.”
And to how bad the world’s agricultural system has really become due to these genetically modified plants, pesticides and seeds, this report continues, can be seen by the EC’s proposal this past week, following their ban on neonicotinoids, in which they plan to criminalize nearly all seeds and plants not registered with the European Union, and as we can, in part, read:
“Europe is rushing towards the good ol days circa 1939, 40… A new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to “grow, reproduce or trade” any vegetable seeds that have not been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy named the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”
It’s called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.”
This MRNE report points out that even though this EC action may appear draconian, it is nevertheless necessary in order to purge the continent from continued contamination of these genetically bred “seed monstrosities.”
Most perplexing in all of this, the MRNE says, and which led to Putin’s anger at the US, has been the Obama regimes efforts to protect pesticide-producer profits over the catastrophic damaging being done to the environment, and as the Guardian News Service detailed in their 2 May article titled “US rejects EU claim of insecticide as prime reason for bee colony collapse” and which, in part, says:
“The European Union voted this week for a two-year ban on a class of pesticides, known as neonicotinoids, that has been associated with the bees’ collapse. The US government report, in contrast, found multiple causes for the collapse of the honeybees.”
To the “truer” reason for the Obama regimes protection of these bio-tech giants destroying our world, the MRNE says, can be viewed in the report titled “How did Barack Obama become Monsanto’s man in Washington?” and which, in part, says:
“After his victory in the 2008 election, Obama filled key posts with Monsanto people, in federal agencies that wield tremendous force in food issues, the USDA and the FDA: At the USDA, as the director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto Danforth Center. As deputy commissioner of the FDA, the new food-safety-issues czar, the infamous Michael Taylor, former vice-president for public policy for Monsanto. Taylor had been instrumental in getting approval for Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone.”
Even worse, after Russia suspended the import and use of an Monsanto genetically modified corn following a study suggesting a link to breast cancer and organ damage this past September, the Russia Today News Service reported on the Obama regimes response:
“The US House of Representatives quietly passed a last-minute addition to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for 2013 last week – including a provision protecting genetically modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks.
The rider, which is officially known as the Farmer Assurance Provision, has been derided by opponents of biotech lobbying as the “Monsanto Protection Act,” as it would strip federal courts of the authority to immediately halt the planting and sale of genetically modified (GMO) seed crop regardless of any consumer health concerns.
The provision, also decried as a “biotech rider,” should have gone through the Agricultural or Judiciary Committees for review. Instead, no hearings were held, and the piece was evidently unknown to most Democrats (who hold the majority in the Senate) prior to its approval as part of HR 993, the short-term funding bill that was approved to avoid a federal government shutdown.”
On 26 March, Obama quietly signed this “Monsanto Protection Act” into law thus ensuring the American people have no recourse against this bio-tech giant as they fall ill by the tens of millions, and many millions will surely end up dying in what this MRNE report calls the greatest agricultural apocalypse in human history as over 90% of feral (wild) bee population in the US has already died out, and up to 80% of domestic bees have died out too.

Human bodyguards can earn as much as $1,000.00 a day. Protection at a higher level of security is what a bodyguard offers. Wouldn't it be great if we could have our very own bodyguard to be a shield from danger and injury? We just celebrated Memorial Day when we honor the nation's armed forces – a national bodyguard to be sure. Actually all believers have a spiritual bodyguard (Holy Spirit) and all humans have a build-in bodyguard called the immune system. Want to know how powerful it can be? Let's find out.
SEEK & DESTROY
Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania recently discovered just how powerful your immune system is. They took immune cells from patients, tinkered with them in the lab to create "serial killer" immune cells. Why? They wanted to see if the cells would seek and destroy specific cancer cells. The best results they were able to publish were that they declared the killer cells to offer a remission in their small test group of three patients. All that means is that symptoms of the cancer were diminished. They did not clinically reverse the cancer to restore health to its original state before the disease (a.k.a. cure). So, science modifying human immune cells was declared to be a "groundbreaking event." The treatment did not offer any solid, long-term benefits and is at best an experimental hypothesis. http://www.today.com/id/45022571/ns/today-today_health/t/easy-ways-boost-your-immune-system/#.UaUWG9j-nE1
BALANCE & HARMONY
According to the Harvard Medical School Health Publications they say there is little you can do to enhance or boost your immune system. I would have to disagree with them and would speculate that they make such a statement knowing that the use of vaccines is attempting to destroy the human immune system from birth. If you want to do just one thing to help your natural immune system it would be to say no to vaccines. The Harvard Medical School goes on to say that for an immune system to "function well it needs balance and harmony." They admit that scientific medicine "does not know about the intricacies and interconnectedness of the immune response." Yet they claim there is no scientifically proven connection between lifestyle and immune function.http://www.health.harvard.edu/flu-resource-center/how-to-boost-your-immune-system.htm. What do I have to say to that? What a bunch of horse poop. You have to ask that if they don't understand the human immune system then why are they injecting people with disease called inoculations. The answer is WE ARE THEIR TEST GROUP. If you keep reading their report they advise you to eat a healthy lifestyle to improve your defenses against illness. So which is it Harvard; lifestyle does or does not matter with regards to improving immune function?
There are a lot of mixed messages and down right lies with regard to your immune system in medicine. One is that you cannot do anything specifically to influence the power of your immunity. Not true. If it were true aspirin could not lower a fever – a direct immune system response. The fever regulates the number of and speed in which antibodies (made by the immune system) circulate in the body to neutralize disease. Therefore, aspirin or other pain products suppress the immune system response and you are sicker longer. Vaccines, suppress the immune system and antibiotics suppress the immune system. It is any wonder we have any immunity left. There is also the misconception prorogated by medicine that most disease is genetic when it is not. Most disease is caused by toxins, heavy metals, chemical toxins of which a majority are found in vaccines. For instance, cancer is rarely inherited but science has you believing it is. The truth is 95% of cancer cases are caused by lifestyle making us more prone to the disease and from other toxins (mentioned above) which attack our healthy cells.http://www.naturalnews.com/040519_genetic_diseases_cancer_Western_medicine.html
Yes, cancer is genetic because the disease messes with your genes thru multiplying but is rarely is it inherited.
Your immune system is capable to destroying some of the most deadly pathogens on the planet. The problem is we don't do our part to mark sure our bodyguard is healthy and well. The right foods, and avoiding the wrong foods, will go a long way to power-up a wimpy immune system that has been beat up by antibiotics, vaccines and poor diets. Here is a list of foods to make sure you are getting enough of:
Vitamin C – citrus fruit, broccoli
Vitamin E – nuts and whole grains
Garlic – natural antibiotic
Zinc – beans, turkey, seafood and beef
Bioflavanoids – fruits and vegetables
Selenium – chicken, grains, tuna, eggs, sunflower seeds, brown rice
Carotenoid – carrots, yams
Omega-3 fatty acids – olive oil, nuts, salmon, tuna, mackerel, flaxseed
For expectant mothers, make sure breast feeding is looked at as an immune system support for the baby. Lots of studies have been done on how breast milk helps children develop a normal immune system having a higher tolerance to infections. Breast fed children have fewer colds, ear infections, lower risk to SIDS, lower risk of juvenile diabetes and fewer allergies to name a few. A review of over 130 studies on breast milk showed that the children had protection from developing allergies. The Natural Resources Defense Council finds breast milk to be a unique food source for infants and formula manufacturers try as they may can not seem to duplicate the nutrition in breast milk. Breast milk is the best bodyguard nature can deliver to infants with an immature immunity. Infant formula cannot pass onto the infant antibodies that the mother has managed to develop from childhood thru pregnancy. This in itself will strengthen the baby's immune system giving it an advantage over formula fed infants.http://www.nrdc.org/breastmilk/benefits.asp
Our immune system takes a lot of abuse and tries not to let us down. We may let it down by interfering with it, by suppressing it with drugs and vaccines but it will fight for us. Our immune systems deserve a purple heart for putting up with all the abuse this toxic world dishes out. A majority of people are tired of being sick and fatigued. You can change all that and don't let doctors tell you otherwise. Pump more fresh fruits and vegetables into the diet (avoid GMO). Add more water and remove the dehydrating beverages (caffeine and alcohol). Stop smoking if you are and get regular exercise appropriate for your situation. If you need some help getting some super nutrition into the body to support the immune system, try Body Foundation Food Mix and the Calcium Formula (plant-based) made by Apothecary Herbs.

The true history of the AMA
by Ty Bollinger
In order to understand the current state of affairs of medical practice in the USA, it's vital to understand exactly how we got here. So, let's put on our history caps and go all the way back over 100 years to the turn of the 20th century.
When Dr. George H. Simmons began in 1899 what became a 25 year reign as head of the American Medical Association (AMA), it was a weak organization with little money and little respect from the general public. The advertising revenue from its medical journal, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), was a paltry $34,000 per year. The AMA realized that competition was causing physicians' incomes to dwindle, as the number of medical schools had increased from around 90 (in 1880) to over 150 (in 1903). Chiropractic had just been introduced into the mainstream, homeopathy was thriving, herbalists were flourishing, all the while regular doctors were unable to profit from their medical practices.
With the state governments reluctant to create laws restricting the various healing arts, Simmons hired Joseph McCormack (the secretary of the Kentucky State Board of health) to "rouse the profession to lobby." With McCormack leading the charge, the AMA began to bolster their ranks, preaching ethics (like not competing with other physicians or publishing your prices) and decrying "quackery" (anything that competed with regular medicine).
Simmons was shrewd enough to have the AMA establish a Council on Medical Education in 1904. This council's stated mission was to "upgrade medical education" – a noble goal. However, the Council on Medical Education had actually devised a plan to rank medical schools throughout the country, but their guidelines were dubious, to say the least. For instance, just having the word "homeopathic" in the name of a medical school reduced their ranking because the AMA asserted that such schools taught "an exclusive dogma."
However, by 1910, the AMA was out of money and didn't have the funds to complete the project. The Rockefellers had joined forces with the Carnegie foundation to create an education fund, and they were approached by N. P. Colwell (secretary of the Council on Medical Education ) to finish the job they had started, but could no longer fund. Rockefeller and Carnegie agreed.
Simon Flexner, who was on the Board of Directors for the Rockefeller Institute, proposed that his brother, Abraham, who knew nothing about medicine, be hired for the project. Although their names are not very well known, the Flexner brothers have probably influenced the lives of more people and in a more profound way than any other brothers in the last century, with the possible exception of Wilbur and Orville Wright .
Abraham Flexner was on the staff of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The Rockefellers and Carnegies had traditionally worked together in the furtherance of their mutual goals, and this certainly was no exception. The Flexner brothers represented the lens that brought both the Rockefeller and the Carnegie fortunes into sharp focus on the medical profession.
Their plan was to "restructure" the AMA and "certify" medical schools based solely upon Abraham Flexner's recommendations. The AMA's head of the Council on Medical Educationtraveled with Flexner as they evaluated medical schools. Eventually, Flexner submitted a report to The Carnegie Foundation entitled "Medical Education in the United States and Canada," which is also known as the "Flexner report." Not surprisingly, the gist of the report was that it was far too easy to start a medical school and that most medical schools were not teaching "sound medicine."
The medical sociologist Paul Starr wrote in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book (The Social Transformation of American Medicine): "The AMA Council became a national accrediting agency for medical schools, as an increasing number of states adopted its judgments of unacceptable institutions." Further, he noted: "Even though no legislative body ever set up ... the AMA Council on Medical Education, their decisions came to have the force of law." With the AMA grading the various medical colleges, it became predictable that the homeopathic colleges, even the large and respected ones, would eventually be forced to stop teaching homeopathy or die. And that's exactly what happened.
Published in 1910, the Flexner report (quite correctly) pointed out the inadequacies of medical education at the time. No one could take exception with that. It also proposed a wide range of sweeping changes, most of which were entirely sound. No one could take exception with those, either. However, Flexner's recommendations emphatically included the strengthening of courses in pharmacology and the addition of research departments at all "qualified" medical schools.
It is what followed in the wake of the Flexner report that reveals its true purpose in the total plan. With public backing secured by the publication of the Flexner report, Carnegie and Rockefeller commenced a major upgrade in medical education by financing only those medical schools that taught what they wanted taught. In other words, they began to immediately shower hundreds of millions of dollars on those medical schools that were teaching "drug intensive" medicine.
Predictably, those schools that had the financing churned out the better doctors. In return for the financing, the schools were required to continue teaching course material that was exclusively drug oriented, with no emphasis put on natural medicine. The end result of the Flexner report was that all accredited medical schools became heavily oriented toward drugs and drug research. In 1913, Simmons and the AMA went on the offensive even more strongly by their establishment of the "Propaganda Department," which was dedicated to attacking any and all unconventional medical treatments and anyone (MD or not) who practiced them.
The purpose was to dominate the oil and chemical (pharmaceutical) markets, and the Flexner report gave both of these tycoons the "ammunition" they needed to achieve that goal. In the end, the Rockefeller/Carnegie plan was a smashing success. Those medical schools that did not conform were denied the funds and the prestige that came with those funds, and were forced out of business.
By 1925, over 10,000 herbalists were out of business. By 1940, 1500 chiropractors would be prosecuted for practicing "quackery." The 22 homeopathic medical schools that flourished in 1900 dwindled to just 2 in 1923. By 1950, all schools teaching homeopathy were closed. In the end, if a physician did not graduate from a Flexner approved medical school, he couldn't find a job.
This is why today our doctors are so heavily biased toward synthetic drug therapy and know little about nutrition.
Please understand that it is currently standard practice in the USA to simply dismiss any piece of information that punches a hole in any widely accepted explanation of a disturbing event by tagging the new explanation as a "conspiracy theory." It's time to put an end to this name-calling nonsense once and for all. It is absolutely accurate to say that conspiracies exist all around us every day of our lives and in all walks of life.
As a matter of fact, conspiracies are a very common part of life. Children conspire to play jokes on their friends, football teams conspire (in the huddle) to outmaneuver their opponents; the rich conspire with one another to get richer; governments conspire about virtually everything. As a matter of fact every single person who has ever been convicted of a crime by a jury is the subject of a conspiracy theory; only in these cases a jury has accepted the theory as truth after seeing the evidence. The fact is that any time two or more people are involved in setting private plans to do anything, you have a conspiracy. And as research has revealed, the Flexner report of 1910 was the beginning of a conspiracy to limit and eventually eliminate competition from non-pharmaceutical, non-patentable treatments for disease.
During the infamous Spanish flu epidemic of 1918-19, it has been estimated that 25 to 50 million people died worldwide. In the USA alone, 550,000 people died, which was approximately 10% of the people afflicted with the flu. Homeopathic physicians documented then more than 62,000 patients treated with homeopathy resulting in a mortality of 0.7%. For people who were sick enough to be hospitalized, conventional medicine had a mortality of 30% while with 27,000 documented hospitalized cases, homeopathy was reporting a mortality of 1.05% (Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy 1921; 13:1028-43).
So, in light of the fact that the homeopathic success rate was many fold higher than the allopathic success rate, it is crystal clear that there must have been ulterior motives for closing the homeopathic hospitals, which were actually far superior than the allopathichospitals in the treatment of the Spanish flu. This is the "icing" on the conspiracy cake.

What's Ailing America?
Memorializing crimes against humanity as "service"
by Rebecca Carley, MD
Here we are; another "Memorial Day". As Mason Billy Graham stated in his daily article in the Charlotte Observer yesterday, it is "a day set aside to remember the sacrifices of those who gave their lives to defend our freedoms".
Excuse me ."freedoms"? How long is this propaganda going to fly with the public? The traitor in chief has recently defended his drone attacks, stating that they are a "necessary part of an overall national defense strategy", while admitting that they are creating new enemies" (especially since drone operators sometimes aren't even certain whom they are killing). Obama's "fact sheet" on using drones states that "those who can be killed must pose a "continuing and imminent threat to US persons". Who is killing and maiming US citizens with mandated bioweapon vaccines, toxic drugs, unlabeled GMO foods, chemtrails, pesticides, fluoride, etc.? Certainly the guilty parties ARE terrorists and they are located in the district of criminals. As Obama did various news conferences recently addressing the Bengazhi, IRS and AP reporters phone records scandals, there was one conference in which he stood outside in the pouring rain. I was sickened to see a US Marine, who took an oath to protect us from terrorists, holding an umbrella over the head of this terrorist/traitor. He might as well have licked the boots of his puppetmaster on camera.
How obvious can it be that the terror they have declared war on is being created by the Moussad and CIA? How many false flags will we endure before the people finally wake up in large numbers? They invent Muslim bogeymen as an excuse to continue occupation of Muslim countries which are the only holdouts to the usury of the IMF bringing them to their knees with debt. Today in the news it was reported that the Syrian government has "massacred" more than 200 people. So this is an excuse to arm the rebels to bring down that government next while 800,000 people die of properly prescribed drugs alone in this country. Yet, the American people continue to keep waving their flags, and offering up their children to become serial killers of innocent men, women and children in occupied countries. One third of enlisted women are raped by the psychopathic monsters the military is creating. What is there to celebrate?
What all these fools need to read is the document "Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars, An Introduction Programming Manual ". This was uncovered quite by accident on July 7, 1986 when an employee of Boeing Aircraft Co. purchased a surplus IBM copier for scrap parts at a sale, and discovered inside details of a plan, hatched in the embryonic days of the "Cold War" which called for control of the masses through manipulation of industry, peoples' pastimes, education and political leanings. It called for a quiet revolution, putting brother against brother, and diverting the public's attention from what is really going on. This document would not only cause the slave work units to realize that "War" had been declared against them, but would be able to properly identify the true enemy to Humanity. This document can be accessed at http://www.whale.to/b/silentweapon.html .
I especially refer citizens to the end of the document, where the following can be found:
Factor II - Father
The man of the household must be housebroken to ensure that junior will grow up with the right social training and attitudes. The advertising media, etc., are engaged to see to it that father-to-be is pussy-whipped before or by the time he is married. He is taught that he either conforms to the social notch cut out for him or his sex life will be hobbled and his tender companionship will be zero. He is made to see that women demand security more than logical, principled, or honorable behavior.
By the time his son must go to war, father (with jelly for a backbone) will slam a gun into junior's hand before father will risk the censure of his peers, or make a hypocrite of himself by crossing the investment he has in his own personal opinion or self-esteem. Junior will go to war or father will be embarrassed. So junior will go to war, the true purpose not withstanding.
Factor III - Mother
The female element of human society is ruled by emotion first and logic second. In the battle between logic and imagination, imagination always wins, fantasy prevails, maternal instinct dominates so that the child comes first and the future comes second. A woman with a newborn baby is too starry-eyed to see a wealthy man's cannon fodder or a cheap source of slave labor. A woman must, however, be conditioned to accept the transition to "reality" when it comes, or sooner.
As the transition becomes more difficult to manage, the family unit must be carefully disintegrated, and state-controlled public education and state-operated child-care centers must be become more common and legally enforced so as to begin the detachment of the child from the mother and father at an earlier age. Inoculation of behavioral drugs [Ritalin] can speed the transition for the child (mandatory). Caution: A woman's impulsive anger can override her fear. An irate woman's power must never be underestimated, and her power over a pussy-whipped husband must likewise never be underestimated. It got women the vote in 1920.
Factor IV - Junior
The emotional pressure for self-preservation during the time of war and the self-serving attitude of the common herd that have an option to avoid the battlefield - if junior can be persuaded to go - is all of the pressure finally necessary to propel Johnny off to war. Their quiet blackmailings of him are the threats: "No sacrifice, no friends; no glory, no girlfriends."
Factor V - Sister
And what about junior's sister? She is given all the good things of life by her father, and taught to expect the same from her future husband regardless of the price.
Factor VI - Cattle
Those who will not use their brains are no better off than those who have no brains, and so this mindless school of jelly-fish, father, mother, son, and daughter, become useful beasts of burden or trainers of the same.
