He is the author of The Invisible Universe: Why There’s More to Reality than Meets the Eye (forthcoming 2021).

A young astronomer sits cross-legged on the bonnet of her car, the towering line of radio dishes vanishing … Continue reading Contact
“Jeff Bezos has no idea that his workers are homeless, especially in New York, and I’m not the only one.” By Lauren Kaori Gurley Natalie Monarrez’s commute to work at Amazon’s colossal warehouse in Staten Island, New York City, known as JFK8, is just a few hundred steps. Since 2019, she’s been homeless and has lived out of her SUV, camping out in the facility’s parking lot. Being a homeless Amazon warehouse worker isn’t easy, but Monarrez has made it work. She has a membership at Planet Fitness, where she goes to shower and brush her teeth. She keeps a list … Continue reading A Homeless Amazon Warehouse Worker in New York City Tells Her Story
by: Nolan Barton Campaigners from the People’s Vaccine Alliance, whose members include Global Justice Now, Oxfam and UNAIDS, have analyzed Forbes Rich List data to highlight the massive wealth being generated for a handful of people from vaccines which were largely publicly funded. Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel topped the list and is now worth $4.3 billion after his company became the second to be granted emergency use authorization in the U.S. for its COVID-19 vaccine in December last year. (Related: Move aside, Big Pharma: BIG COVID is a trillion-dollar industry and those who profit from it will make sure covid never goes away.) … Continue reading Coronavirus pandemic creates 9 new Big Pharma billionaires
World’s First Invisible Sculpture Sells for a Whopping $18,000 By Spooky An invisible sculpture created by Italian artist Salvatore Garau recently acquired by a private collector who paid a whopping 15,000 euros for it during an auction. If you’re one of those people who just can’t understand how someone can pay large sums of money for digital assets like video game skins, accessories or increasingly popular non-fungible assets (NFTs), then the sale of Salvatore Garau’s immaterial sculpture is really going to do a number on your brain. Titled “I am” the invisible work of art basically represents a void, a … Continue reading WHAT THE FUCK ?
By Brandon Specktor The water contains more radioactive material than the plant’s managers previously stated. Japan’s government announced on Tuesday (April 13) that it will dump more than a million tons of contaminated wastewater from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean, beginning in two years. Roughly 1.25 million tons (1.13 million metric tons) of water have accumulated around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan since 2011, after a magnitude-9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami devastated the region. The twin disasters killed nearly 20,000 people, according to NPR, and caused meltdowns in three of the plant’s six reactors, triggering the worst nuclear disaster … Continue reading Millions of tons of nuclear wastewater from Fukushima will be dumped into the sea
(Natural News) What most people fail to realize is that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination drive is priming the bodies of people who get jabbed to be killed off by future bioweapons. by: Ethan Huff Unlike traditional vaccines, the messenger RNA (mRNA) “vaccines” from Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna do not produce matching antibodies for Chinese virus infection. Instead, they tell the body to produce spike proteins that elicit their own immune response, complete with unique antibodies that are different from the ones brought about by natural infection. What this means is that people who get vaccinated for the WuFlu not only gain no protection whatsoever against the “wild” virus, … Continue reading Communist China successfully killing the West with coronavirus
The Lone Star State is aptly named. If you’re not part of the Republican oil elite with Cruz and Abbott, you’re on your own. by Robert Reich Texas has long represented a wild west individualism that elevates personal freedom – this week, the freedom to freeze – above all else. The state’s prevailing social Darwinism was expressed most succinctly by the mayor of Colorado City, who accused his constituents – trapped in near sub-zero temperatures and complaining about lack of heat, electricity and drinkable water – of being the “lazy” products of a “socialist government”, adding “I’m sick and tired of … Continue reading Texas freeze shows a chilling truth – how the rich use climate change to divide us
Americans have shorter lives than international peers. Some researchers now say conservative policies may be to blame. BY LOLA BUTCHER IN 2013, a research team comprised of some of the nation’s top epidemiologists and demographers compared the health of Americans with the health of people in other high-income nations. They summarized their findings in the report’s title: “U.S. Health in International Perspective: Shorter Lives, Poorer Health.” Compared to 16 other nations, the U.S. ranked dead last in life expectancy for males and second-to-last for females. Beyond that, the nation ranked at or near the bottom in nine broad areas, including injuries and homicides, drug-related … Continue reading Are Conservative Policies Shortening American Lives?

by Dr. Mercola, Guest Waking Times The COVID-19 pandemic has brought us many harsh lessons. Importantly, it has shown us how easy it is to manufacture panic and control entire populations through deceptive means. Topping the list of deceptive strategies is the use of a test that falsely labels healthy individuals as sick and infectious. This allows mass testing to drive the narrative that we’re in a lethal pandemic. Of course, I’m talking about the now infamous reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test. The fact is, the PCR test is not designed to be used as a diagnostic tool as it … Continue reading ASTONISHING COVID-19 TESTING FRAUD REVEALED
