A recent Consumer Reports test of 45 brands of bottled water (including 12 sparkling waters) found “PFAS” chemicals in several of them.
Consumer Reports found the most PFAS in Topo Chico.
They found the most levels of PFA in Topo Chico. There was also over the 1 ppt recommended limit in other popular sparkling waters, like Polar, Bubly, Poland Spring, Canada Dry, LaCroix, and Perrier. To ensure reliable results, they independently tested 2-4 unopened samples of each variety, which were blind-coded to preserve their identities.
Here are the worst offenders:
Topo Chico (now owned by Coca-Cola) (9.76 ppt)
Polar Natural Seltzer Water (6.41 ppt)
Bubly Blackberry Sparkling Water (2.24 ppt)
Poland Spring Zesty Lime Sparkling Water (1.66 ppt)
Canada Dry Lemon Lime Sparkling Seltzer Water (1.24 ppt)
LaCroix Natural Sparkling Water (1.16 ppt)
Perrier Natural Sparkling Mineral Water (1.1 ppt)
What are PFAS chemicals contaminating our water and how do they harm our health?
PFAS stands for a group of over 5,000 toxic fluorinated chemicals that have been used in manufacturing by big corporations (and by governments) for decades. They contaminate our environment and drinking water.
Exposure to PFAS are linked to all kinds of tragic health issues:
Suppressed Immune System
Thyroid Hormone Disruption
Delayed Mammary Gland Development
Decreased Vaccine Antibody Response
Increased Cholesterol Levels
PFAS chemicals stick around forever…
For decades, DuPont chemical company used “PFOA” (perfluorooctanoic acid) to make non-stick Teflon and 3M used “PFOS” (perfluorooctanesulfonic acid) to make Scotchgard and firefighting foam. These chemicals escaped from their factories, poisoning our drinking water. Even though companies no longer use these two substances, we are still paying the price.
PFAS substances are persistent – and don’t just disappear. They stick around in our environment and in our bodies when we consume them. That is why they are called “Forever Chemicals”.
You’ll now find PFAS in virtually all major water supplies in the U.S., but some areas are worse than others.
PFAS chemicals are found in all kinds of products – like nonstick pans, food packaging, cleaning products, carpets, clothing, and more.
Instead of creating strict limits, the EPA issued “voluntary” guidance that allows 70ppt (parts per trillion) of two of the most dangerous PFAS chemicals (PFOS and PFOA) in drinking water.
This is WAY TOO MUCH according to many natural health experts. The consumer advocacy group, Environmental Working Group, says the limit should be 1ppt.
And, other advocacy groups like the NRDC say that 1ppt is even too high!
Most of the non-carbonated bottled waters they tested had low levels of PFAS, except for two:
Tourmaline Spring Sacred Living Water (4.64 ppt.)
Deer Park Natural Spring Water (1.21 ppt)
What about heavy metals in bottled water?
Consumer Reports only found heavy metals in one brand of water: Starkey Spring Water, which is owned by Whole Foods. It contained arsenic (a known carcinogen) at nearly 10 ppb, which is 3 times what Consumer Reports advises as safe: 3 ppb.
James Dickerson, Ph.D., chief scientific officer at Consumer Reports says a single bottle won’t harm you, “But regular consumption of even small amounts of the heavy metal over extended periods increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, and lower IQ scores in children, and poses other health issues as well.”
The least contaminated brands…
The sparkling waters with the least amount of PFAS detected included San Pellegrino Natural Sparkling Mineral Water (0.31) and Spindrift Raspberry Lime Sparkling Water (0.19 ppt).
Mountain Valley Spring Water (in the green glass bottles) wasn’t tested by Consumer Reports. However, the water quality report on their website shows it is tested for Arsenic, PFOA, PFOS, and other PFAS substances, and none were detected in their water.
Research facts on homeschooling show that the home-educated are doing well, typically above average, on measures of social, emotional, and psychological development.
According to National Home Education Research Institute, measures include peer interaction, self-concept, leadership skills, family cohesion, participation in community service, and self-esteem.
In the spring of 2019 there were about 2.5 million homeschool students in grades K-12 in the United States. It appears that the homeschool population is continuing to grow (at an estimated 2% to 8% per annum over the past few years).
By March 2021, there were an estimated 4.5 to 5.0 million homeschool students in grades K-12 in the United States. This represented about 8% to 9% of school-age children.
The most common reasons given for homeschooling is to provide a safer environment for children and youth, because of physical violence, drugs and alcohol, psychological abuse, racism, and improper and unhealthy sexuality associated with institutional schools.
Other reasons given for homeschooling include:
customize or individualize the curriculum and learning environment for each child,
accomplish more academically than in schools,
use pedagogical approaches other than those typical in institutional schools,
enhance family relationships between children and parents and among siblings,
provide guided and reasoned social interactions with youthful peers and adults,
provide a safer environment for children and youth, because of physical violence, drugs and alcohol, psychological abuse, racism, and improper and unhealthy sexuality associated with institutional schools, and
as an alternative education approach when public or private institutional schools are closed due to acute health situations such as related to disease (e.g., Covid-19, Coronavirus)
protect minority children from racism in public schools or lower expectations of children of color (e.g., black) (e.g., Fields-Smith, 2020; Mazama & Lundy, 2012).
teach and impart a particular set of values, beliefs, and worldview to children and youth.
The home-educated typically score higher on SATs and ACT than their public-school counterparts. Homeschool students are increasingly being actively recruited by colleges.
Homeschool students score above average on achievement tests regardless of their parents’ level of formal education or their family’s household income.
Whether homeschool parents were ever certified teachers is not related to their children’s academic achievement.
Degree of state control and regulation of homeschooling is not related to academic achievement.
Home-educated students typically score above average on the SAT and ACT tests that colleges consider for admissions.
Homeschool students are increasingly being actively recruited by colleges.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during a press briefing Monday the Biden administration will continue to advise young people to get vaccinated, despite reported cases of myocarditis.
CDC is investigating reports of teens and young adults vaccinated against COVID who experienced heart problems.
The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices released an advisory May 17 alerting doctors to reports of myocarditis, which seemed to occur predominantly in adolescents and young adults, more often in males than females, more often following the second dose and typically within four days after vaccination with Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Johnson & Johnson has not been approved for teens yet.
The CDC claim its monitoring systems had not found more cases of myocarditis than would be expected in the population, but members of the committee on vaccinations said healthcare providers should be made aware of the reports of the “potential adverse event.”
Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle that can lead to cardiac arrhythmia and death. According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, myocarditis can result from infections, but “more commonly the myocarditis is a result of the body’s immune reaction to the initial heart damage.” Pericarditis is inflammation of the tissue surrounding the heart that can cause sharp chest pain and other symptoms.
One week after the CDC announced it was investigating heart inflammation in recently vaccinated young adults, Connecticut reported 18 new cases of heart problems among teens who had received a COVID vaccine. All 18 cases resulted in hospitalization — the vast majority for a couple of days, while one individual remained hospitalized as of May 26.
The latest VAERS data revealed 262,521 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines, including 4,406 deaths and 21,537 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 21, 2021.
VAERS is the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S. The CDC uses it for their data.
Friday’s data indicate between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 21, showed an increase of 205 deaths over the previous week — and 21,537 serious injuries, up 3,009 since last week.
Last week’s data showed 3,449 total adverse events, compared with 943 reports last week, among 12- to 17-year-olds. Last week’s data included 58 reports of serious adverse events in the 12- to -17-year-old age group.
In the U.S 281.6 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of May 21. This includes 120 million doses of Moderna’s vaccine, 152 million doses of Pfizer and 10 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccine.
Of the 4,406 deaths reported as of May 21, 23% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination, 16% occurred within 24 hours and 38% occurred in people who became ill within 48 hours of being vaccinated.
Last week’s VAERS data show:
20% of deaths were related to cardiac disorders.
54% of those who died were male, 44% were female and the remaining death reports did not include gender of the deceased.
The average age of death was 74.4 and the youngest deaths reported include two 15-year-olds (VAERS I.D. 1187918 and 1242573 ) and a 16-year-old (VAERS I.D. 1225942). There were other reported deaths in children under 16 that could not be confirmed or contained obvious errors.
The Pandemic Year of 2020 taught millions of Americans about job security. After the presidential election and inauguration, the current resident of the White House immediately starting cutting jobs. Soon America was turned into a tailspin of insecurity, socialistic handouts, free rides for illegal immigrants, laxed border protection and both domestic and foreign problems.
Fire Your Boss was written by Stephen M. Pollan and Mark Levine Publisher: Harper Collins, 2004
This book helps some learn how to look for new employment, choose among numerous job offers, and thrive in this economy. You will find out why it is not beneficial to keep relying on your boss for financial security and job satisfaction. Here are my summary notes from Fire Your Boss.
You must rely on yourself !
The Job of Your Dreams .
Believe it or not, you can take charge of your career. You don’t have to keep worrying that your job security depends on the whims or moods of your current boss. The job of your dreams is within your reach. In fact, you can even transform your current job into that dream job.
Seven Steps to Gain Control of Your Work Life :
Fire Your Boss… and Hire Yourself.
2. Kill Your Career… and Get a Job
3. There’s No “I” in Job .
4. Go Fish
5. No One Hires a Stranger.
6. It’s the Money That Counts.
7. Hello, I Must be Going.
Fire Your Boss… and Hire Yourself >The first thing you must do to get the job of your dreams is to fire your boss and hire yourself. To do this, you must not allow your boss control what happens in your career. You must take charge of your work life. Firing your boss is a mental exercise. You should not walk into your boss’ office tomorrow and demand a resignation. Even if you have fired your boss and hired yourself as a manager, you must appear as loyal and as dedicated as ever. This time, you’ll be determining your own value. You will be setting your own goals. You will be in charge of selecting the skills you wish to attain. You will also have your own personal work plan. To start doing this, you must undergo a process of self-examination.
Write your own job description > Write a brief description of your job. However, do not align yourself with a certain company, profession or specialization. Reflect on what you do each day and each week. Give yourself a performance review. Find out what other people with the same job description earn. Also find out the skills that are valued in this certain field. Define alternate courses. After you have done the two steps above, you will realize that there are alternate courses available to you. Brainstorm about all the other fields and occupations that would suit the job description that you created. Put your plan into writing. Develop your own plan for your work life. Remember that your future plans should not hinder the alternate courses you have defined. Note down the new skills you need to acquire.
Kill Your Career… and Get a Job >Most people don’t see their jobs as emotionally satisfying. In fact, most people work because they need to put food on the table. Killing your career does not mean quitting. Rather, it means that you should stop looking for emotional satisfaction in your job. Instead, look for a job that provides a large and secure income. Reserve the search for emotional satisfaction to your personal life. You should stop thinking of your work as a career. It is far healthier to view it as a job. Ask “Why Do I Work?”
Usually, there are eight reasons why people work: power. / respect. / security. / travel. /serve. / meet people. / express yourself. / money.
You must learn to derive satisfaction outside work, and basically expect only Money from your WORK. You must earn respect off the job, find security away from work, and travel for pleasure (and not for business). If you are working to meet people, remember that there are far better places that are more suitable for making friends.
There’s No I in Job > You must realize that you have been lied to. In the past, you have been told that to succeed in your career, you must show up on time and work as hard as you can. You were also promised that you would be rewarded if you show up early, work all day, and stay late at night. Even if you have been a model employee, your job is not secure. You must realize that people act in their own self-interest and not in the company’s interest. Instead, to succeed in your career, you must stop focusing on your own success and start worrying about your boss’ success instead.
The best thing you can do is to help your boss meet his goals. This is the best path towards job security. If you make your boss look good to others, you will look good to your boss.
Six Personality Types of Bosses and What They Want
He wants to be one of the guys. Have lunch with your boss every time he asks and ask him sometimes as well. Include him in your group activities.
He wants to do his job and not be bothered with anything else. Help your boss stay away from other people. Offer to attend weekly meetings on his behalf. Volunteer to teach the new hire.
He follows the rules and wants everyone to do the same. Follow the rules. Show up on time and dress the same way he does. Do things by the book even if you think it might hamper productivity.
The glory seeker
He needs to be the hero. Make sure that all of your triumphant efforts are reflected on your boss. Always ask him for advice. Compliment him on both actions and appearance.
A boss who needs conflict. Do not allow yourself to be a target. Offer scapegoats and divert his attention to other potential targets.
He is always afraid. You must help your boss by eliminating anything that may cause fear. Offer to take the blame for something that has gone wrong.
Go Fish >Today, you can get laid off even if you are doing a good job. To make matters worse, the job market has been so tumultuous that getting a good job is now harder than ever. You must turn job hunting into a proactive and ongoing part of your life at work. After all, nowadays, employees are hired to get fired or replaced. You must learn to cultivate as many offers of employment possible. This will allow you to choose the job that is best for you.
You must stop hunting for one specific job. Instead, fish for as many jobs as possible and look at everything that bites. Then decide which jobs you can take, and which ones you can throw back.
How to Act During Job Interviews >Make sure that you are dressed neatly and that you are well-groomed. Do not wear too much perfume or jewelry. Arrive on time. Smile. Shake hands firmly. Make eye contact. Do not sit until you are invited to. Do not slouch, cross your arms or legs or touch your face.
No One Hires a Stranger >Networking is not as effective as it used to be. Nowadays, business executives are aware when they are approached by individuals who are using networking as a disguise for a job hunt. Instead of relying on networking, you must learn to turn to your personal life when seeking job opportunities. Become active in your church or pursue a new hobby. Go to social activities whenever you can. Of course, you can not rely on personal contacts alone when you are on a job hunt. Take advantage of old-fashioned methods such as answering help wanted ads and visiting employment agencies.
Appearance Counts>Always make sure that you are wearing something clean and appropriate. Furthermore, be conscious of your manners when you are meeting with people. The best way to make friends is to smile and to look people in the eyes.
Engaging with Strangers >Here are some tips you can use when talking with people you have just met: Ask questions. Listen closely and don’t interrupt. Don’t argue or disagree. Avoid frowning. If you can’t draw the other person into talking about himself, talk about something you share. When asked to share about yourself, do not take too long. Make sure you do not one-up the other person.
It’s the Money That Counts >Companies nowadays are trying to lure employees into their folds by offering non-monetary benefits. These perks include health club memberships, company-owned cafeterias, and even concierge services. You must not forget, however, that your main reason for getting a job must be to increase your stream of income. Rewards that do not affect you financially are useless.
You need to get a job that pays the most money possible. When choosing between job offers, you must take into consideration and Isolate the Factors That Are No Longer Important : Amenities /Auto (car) /Challenging /Culture /Disability insurance /Environment /Expense allowance Health insurance /Income /Life insurance /Opportunity for advancement /Opportunity for learning /Paid time off /Proximity /Retirement plan //Stability /Status /Title /Tuition reimbursement /Unpaid time off
Hello, I Must Be Going >Now that you know that your departure is inevitable, you must plan for it. Think of the reasons why you would want to leave your current job. Think of negative developments that can force you to leave. Think of other jobs and the positive attributes they might have that can cause you to jump ship.
Leave Before You Are Pushed Out >Your job is not secure. Remember that if you leave your current company out of your own accord, you will receive better offers.
The Life of Your Dreams >Remember, you can turn your work life around. By firing your boss and hiring yourself as manager, you cease to depend on other people for job satisfaction. You can increase your income, spend less time at work, and have more time for your family. By finding the job of your dreams, you can have the life of your dreams.
The Democrats are like a cheating boyfriend who won’t let you look at his cell phone.
Keep the law firm Perkins Coie in mind.
It was Perkins Coie, after all, that handled Barack Obama’s fake birth certificate press conference and the aftermath.
Maricopa County Democrats in Arizona are the perfect examples of the cheating boyfriend analogy. They are using the very same law firm–Perkins Coie— that went to the many governors and state attorney generals to get election rules changed before November 2020 election.
Media and the Democrats are supporting this politically connected legal team known as “Protect Democracy” to circumvent legal attempts to audit Arizona votes. The Protect Democracy group uses Bill and Hillary Clinton’s infamous law firm, Perkins Coie.
As Perkins Coie prepare for more fraud, it’s much easier with Democrats and Mainstream Media in control.
Remember when the Department of Justice (DOJ) did nothing about the whole FISA fraud scam against President Donald J. Trump? The only exception was a sacrificial lamb FBI lawyer who lied on an email that Carter Page never worked for the CIA. He will get a slap on the wrist with a year’s probation.
The FBI and DOJ have turned into a cleaning service for Deep State and Democrats rather than an anti-crime program.
When the Arizona legislature authorized a full and comprehensive audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election ballots, the Maricopa County board of elections threw every roadblock against the state legislature to block the audit.
A state judge agreed with the legislative intent and affirmed the authority of the audit. Then the county board held an emergency secret meeting and refused to allow the auditors to use their facilities.
Part of the audit authorization (included in the state’s audit instructions) was for a limited canvassing of actual voters; meaning the auditors can go to the homes, locations of people, groups and verify they actually voted or submitted the ballots attributed to them.
This was why Perkins Coie was called in. One of their first acts was to threaten the contracted auditing agency, Florida-based Cyber Ninjas.
They sent a letter indicating legal action was imminent if Cyber Ninjas followed through with their authority and question the voters who are attributed as sources of thousands of ballots in single geographic locations.
Besides Perkins Coie being the firm that paid Fusion GPS on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, they worked for the Democratic National Committee to produce the infamous Christopher Steele dossier that served as part of the scheme for the FBI to investigate ultimately disproven Russia collusion charges.
This dossier contained wild and unsubstantiated charges, but it was cited as purported evidence in four successful FISA court applications to conduct surveillance on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Under President Trump’s direction last fall, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified documents that revealed former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton’s purported “plan” to tie then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia as “a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server” ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
The cat was out of the bag when Ratcliffe declassified Brennan’s handwritten notes – which were taken after he briefed Obama on the intelligence the CIA received – and a CIA memo, which revealed that officials referred the matter to the FBI for potential investigative action.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence transmitted the declassified documents to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.
Brennan’s notes read:
“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED]. CITE [summarizing] alleged approved by Hillary Clinton a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security service.”
The notes state “on 28 of July.” In the margin, Brennan wrote “POTUS,” but that section of the notes were redacted.
“Any evidence of collaboration between Trump campaign + Russia,” the notes read.
The remainder of the notes are redacted, except in the margins, which reads: “JC,” “Denis,” and “Susan.” “
Months later, we now know “JC” was referring to then-FBI Director James Comey, “Susan” was National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and “Denis” was Obama chief of staff Denis McDonough.
The declassification came shortly after Ratcliffe shared newly-declassified information with the Senate Judiciary Committee which revealed that in September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral on Hillary Clinton. It was purportedly approving “a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections” in order to distract the public from her email scandal.
That referral was sent to Comey and then-Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Peter Strzok.
“The following information is provided for the exclusive use of your bureau for background investigative action or lead purposes as appropriate,” the CIA memo to Comey and Strzok stated.
“This memorandum contains sensitive information that could be source revealing. It should be handled with particular attention to compartmentation and need-to-know. To avoid the possible compromise of the source, any investigative action taken in response to the information below should be coordinated in advance with Chief Counterintelligence Mission Center, Legal,” the memo, which was sent to Comey and Strzok, read. “It may not be used in any legal proceeding—including FISA applications—without prior approval…”
“Per FBI verbal request, CIA provides the below examples of information the CROSSFIRE HURRICANE fusion cell has gleaned to date,” the memo continued. ““An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”
The memo was heavily redacted.
Ratcliffe informed the committee that the Obama administration obtained Russian intelligence in July 2016 with allegations against Clinton, but cautioned that the intelligence community “does not know the accuracy of this allegation or the text to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggeration or fabrication.”
According to Ratcliffe’s letter, the intelligence included the “alleged approval by Hillary Clinton on July 26, 2016, of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services.”
“To be clear, this is not Russian disinformation and has not been assessed as such by the Intelligence Community,” Ratcliffe said in a statement to the media, who later briefed Congress on the sensitive sources and methods by which it was obtained.
“This is not Russian disinformation. Even Brennan knew, or he wouldn’t be briefing the president of the United States on it,” a source confirmed later. “There is a high threshold to orally brief the president of the United States and he clearly felt this met that threshold.”
The release of these documents were ignored or downplayed by most Mainstream Media because the “information has been sought by hundreds of congressional requests for legitimate oversight purposes and was withheld for political spite—and the belief that they’d never get caught.”
The week prior to the release of these documents, during a Senate Judiciary Committee, James Comey was asked whether he received an investigative referral on Clinton from 2016. He said it didn’t “ring any bells.”
“You don’t remember getting an investigatory lead from the intelligence community? Sept. 7, 2016, U.S. intelligence officials forwarded an investigative referral to James Comey and Strzok regarding Clinton’s approval of a plan [about] Trump…as a means of distraction?” Senator Leslie Graham asked Comey.
“That doesn’t ring any bells with me,” Comey said.
“That’s a pretty stunning thing that it doesn’t ring a bell,” Graham tossed back. “You get this inquiry from the intelligence community to look at the Clinton campaign trying to create a distraction, accusing Trump of being a Russian agent or a Russian stooge.”
Graham questioned “how far-fetched is that,” citing the fact that Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, through law firm Perkins Coie, hired Fusion GPS and ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to author and compile information for the controversial and unverified anti-Trump dossier.
Again, it was the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, through Perkins Coie, who hired Fusion GPS and ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele to author and compile information for the controversial and unverified anti-Trump dossier.
About 45 miles south of Tucson, Arizona, rises what remains of Tumacacori Mission, now a national park. The 18th-century church was built by Spaniards hoping to convert the pagan Opata and Papago Indians. The missionaries hired the Indians to work in their nearby silver mines and store the yield in a giant room.
The Opata kidnapped a woman they believed was the Virgin Mary and wanted her to marry their chief. She refused, so the people sacrificed her to their gods by tying her to the silver, rubbing poison into cuts in her hands, and dancing and singing around her.
The missionaries, so dismayed by the pagan violation of their Christian teachings, had the entrance closed off, presumably sealing in the woman’s skeletal remains—and all of the silver—still waiting to be found.
Lost Dutchman Mine Apache Junction, Arizona
Rich in gold, but—some believe—cursed, the fabled Lost Dutchman gold mine generates endless stories. The treasure hunters who mysteriously go missing while looking for the gold fuel the 120-plus-year legend. Today, some wonder if the Superstition Mountains really harbor the gold or if the stories have piled upon stories to bury the truth.
Sometime after 1868, a German (not Dutch) miner named Jacob Waltz found the Peralta family mine and worked it with an associate, Jacob Weiser. Legend has it that they hid some of the gold near Weaver’s Needle, a local landmark. Details after that are unclear, according to Lost Dutchman State Park information. Either Waltz killed Weiser or Apaches killed him, leaving Waltz as the only person who knew the whereabouts of the mine.
His neighbor in Phoenix, Arizona, who took care of him before his death in 1891, and countless others have searched unsuccessfully for the gold.
Dodie and I have spent the past two weeks traveling the American Southwest with stops in Arizona and Colorado.
Thursday and Friday (May 27-28, 2021) we visited southeastern New Mexico to learn what we could about the famous Roswell UFO Incident of July 8, 1947.
If any UFO related event has garnered the highest number of headlines and people’s attention in history, it was here.
Driving in Roswell reveals much evidence around town that the community embraces their UFO history.
From storefronts with cartoonish aliens to alien street light lamps to a variety of alien-inspired attractions and museums, this definitely is a Mecca for UFO enthusiasts.
Allegedly, an alien spacecraft crashed in a ranch northwest of Roswell and was actually covered by both the local newspaper and Air Force news.
The news was blasted across the globe but was rapidly covered up by the US military and federal government. Over the years official statements alleged the crash was a weather balloon. In the 1990s it was identified as “radar targets”.
However, there are many secrets of the Roswell alien and UFO story that point toward the fact that what had crashed was nothing but an alien spacecraft.
(1) The Roswell Army Air Field or the RAAF had initially released a press release based on the Roswell Daily Record newspaper with the headlines ‘RAAF captures flying saucer on ranch in Roswell region’. The news however got changed to the crashed object being a weather balloon by the next morning.
(2) On July 2. 1947, a UFO was seen flying northwest in the skies above Roswell, New Mexico, but what happened to that UFO was not known to anyone. It is believed that it is the same UFO that had crashed a few days later.
(3) Rancher Mac Brazel, whose ranch was the crashing ground for the unidentified flying object had reported that the crash had happened in the first week of July, however the cover-up story said that the weather balloon had crashed on 14 June 1947. Such a timing gap certainly reveals a lot about the probable cover-up attempts by the officials.
(4) In 1989, a young local mortician, Glenn Dennis, claimed that his friend, who worked as a nurse at the Roswell Army Air Field, entered one of the examination rooms to discover that the doctors were bent over and examining the bodies of three creatures. As per the description of the nurse, the creatures had big bald heads, small bodies and long arms.
Dennis was working at Ballard Funeral Home when he received some curious calls one afternoon from the Roswell Air Force morgue. The base’s mortuary officer was needing small, hermetically sealed coffins and also wanted to know how to preserve bodies that had been exposed to the elements for a few days and avoid contaminating the tissue.
Dennis later said that evening he drove to the base hospital, where he saw large pieces of wreckage with strange engravings on one of the pieces sticking out of the back of a military ambulance. He entered the hospital and was visiting with the nurse he knew when suddenly he was threatened by military police and forced to leave.
The next day, Dennis met with the nurse, who told him about bodies discovered with the wreckage and drew pictures of them on a prescription pad. Within a few days she was transferred to England; her whereabouts remain unknown.
(5) Many witnesses reported seeing a blazing aircraft high up in the sky moments before it crashed onto the ground. As per the witnesses, what crashed down certainly did not look like a weather balloon of any type.
(6) As per witness rancher Mac Brazel and Major Jesse Marcel, the debris of the crash site contained small beams that were about ¾ or ½ inch square with some sort of hieroglyphics on them that was completely undecipherable, rubber strips, tin foils and a type of tough paper with sticks and many more unidentifiable objects. The debris that was shown to the press later on did not have any of these things.
(7) If a weather balloon would have crashed in reality, there should have been long strings that would have connected the 700 feet long Project Mogul weather balloon, but in reality there was nothing like that observed in the wreck that was shown to the press, leaving the question burning that was it actually a weather balloon that had crashed in the fields of Roswell.
(8) The RAAF officials had given testimonials that the spread of the debris was nothing beyond 200 yards, whereas the reality is that the debris of the crash had a spread of ¾ mile long and around 500 feet wide.
(9) The wreckage of the object that had crashed in Roswell was loaded on a B-29 fighter plane and flown to Wright Field, which later was renamed Wright Patterson Air force base and served as a storage ground for all UFO related contents.
(10) Apart from the crash at Roswell, there was another crash site in an area known as Plains of San Agustin that lay west of Socorro in New Mexico. A damaged metallic craft was recovered, and allegedly dead alien bodies were discovered. This news was completely suppressed by the Air Force according to locals.
Sedona, Arizona, was extremely busy and has grown since my last visit in 2016. Always beautiful, we stopped briefly to live in the moment of this enchanting destination, but elected to move on. That took a while as we endured the traffic jams.
I will seriously think twice about going through again and thought it sad that one of my favorite places ever has become far too popular.
It was melancholic realizing future generations will never experience the magic many of us did.
Commercialized and extensively developed, Sedona is well on her way to a busy future.
We drove on north to the mountain town of Flagstaff, a truly charming place to stop for a while. We spent the night on May 20th. Dodie’s favorite hotel there is Little America, but we didn’t make reservations this time.
We will be back, perhaps this fall, in our camping van to explore the historic downtown area, where various art galleries, enticing boutiques, Native American shops, outdoor outfitters, eateries, and microbreweries dwell amid the 19th-century streets.
Dodie’s son, Jackson, graduated from Northern Arizona University there, so she is familar with university’s museum, the intriguing Lowell Observatory, and the turn-of-the-20th-century Riordan Mansion State Historic Park.
There are three national monuments located within 7.5 to 33 miles of Flagstaff: Walnut Canyon National Monument, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, and Wupatki National Monument. We’ll be back.
Almost 50,000 years ago a giant fireball streaked across the North American sky from east to west before it struck the Earth with a force 150 times bigger than the atomic bomb.
The last time I visited Meteor Crater was in June 1979. My, it is a far better experience seeing and learning from it as a man in my 60s (vs 20s).
We discovered, through their museum, two quick movies and visitor center, that the impact “generated immensely powerful shock waves in the meteorite, the rock and the surrounding atmosphere. In the air, shock waves swept across the level plain devastating all in their path for a radius of several miles. In the ground, as the meteorite penetrated the rocky plain, pressures rose to over 20 million pounds per square inch, and both iron and rock experienced limited vaporization and extensive melting. Beyond the melted region, an enormous volume of rock underwent complete fragmentation and ejection.”
“The result of these violent conditions was the excavation of a giant bowl-shaped cavity. In seconds, a crater 700 feet deep, over 4,000 feet across, and 2.4 miles in circumference was carved into this once-flat rocky plain. During its formation, over 175 million tons of limestone and sandstone were abruptly thrown out to form a continuous blanket of debris surrounding the crater for a distance of over a mile.”
Before we drove east on IH-40 (old Route 66) to visit the Crater, we ate breakfast at IHOP. As I walked out the front door, I heard a loud crack-pop burst. I thought it was lightning.
The winds were so hard it popped the top third of a 40 foot Juniper tree in two. We were parked less than 30 feet from it.
Highway warning signs advised of hard winds and dark dust storms ahead. The five mile drive from the highway to the Crater Visitor Center was surreal as if we were on Mars. I could barely stay on the two lane road with red dirt and heavy gusts fighting me all the way.
When Dodie took Mr. Beefy to the visitor center’s dog kennel, I went to purchase tickets. Again, I heard a loud crash and whirling noise as I was about to enter. I held the door open for a man who was exiting and he yelled, “Oh my God!”
He saw the front windshield blow out of his truck and watched it fly over 400 feet away–luckily, away from the parking area into an empty pasture.
Roland, an employee, told us the reported winds were 45-55 mph with gusts into the 90s. Before we proceeded into the museum, a young couple drove up and the front grill and bumper blew off their car. Roland remained busy filling out incident reports that afternoon.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finally admitted their “number of reported COVID-19 vaccine breakthrough cases is likely a substantial undercount.”
On May 27, 2021 the CDC acknowledges the 10,562 infections among people who are fully vaccinated against the disease have been underreported.
This is due to the data coming from VAERS, the national surveillance system that relies on passive and voluntary reporting. A large percentage of cases with “breakthrough infections” do not seek testing including those who show no symptoms.
Through April 30th, 10,262 breakthrough infections were reported from 46 U.S. states and territories to the CDC. These high rates of known cases prompted the CDC to stop counting breakthrough infections as of May 1, except for those that cause hospitalization or death.
Breakthrough cases are those appearing two or more weeks after a person’s vaccine final shot. That’s primarily the second Pfizer or Moderna dose, but can be the single-shot Johnson & Johnson.
Of the cases released by CDC, more than six in 10 occurred in females. The median patient age is 58.
Approximately 10 percent of the patients required hospital care two weeks or more after their last jab, and 160, or about 1.5 percent of them died. This does not include those who died within two weeks.
Sequencing data were available for only 555 of the breakthrough cases. The CDC admitted sequence data are only available for a small proportion of the cases that were reported–and those are acknowledged are drastically underreported.
Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, said the report indicates that the three vaccines authorized for emergency use in the United States are “not 100 percent. Nothing in life is 100 percent. So, yeah, we’re going to see some breakthrough infections…” he told ABC News.

Countering the “official” 2020 election results, a new survey reveals the America First policy is preferred over the Biden immigration policy.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of U.S. adults believe that immigration policy should prioritize the interests of the U.S. and its current citizens. A Cato Institute survey found that only 37% take the opposite view and believe the policy should do whatever benefits the most people regardless of nationality.
Most Republicans (85%) and independents (61%) say U.S. interests should come first. Most hardline liberal Democrats (54%) take the opposite view.
The survey found that “only 33% of the public favors removing all restrictions on immigration after the pandemic is over.”
Seventy-two percent (72%) of strong liberals favor open borders as do 54% of moderate liberals. However, 82% of conservatives oppose open borders.
The Cato report adds that 86% oppose the immigration system giving priority to those with family living in the U.S.: 58% say high-skilled workers and those with U.S. relatives should be given equal preference, and 28% prioritize high-skilled workers first.
Mainstream Media, their polling partners and U.S. education indoctrination efforts began accelerating their information propaganda at the turn of the century.
Based on Political Action Committees (PACs) and heavy lobbying from New World Order (NWO) and other anti-American socialism causes, Deep State operatives in FBI, CIA, DOJ and other government departments run their organizations with this acceleration in mind.
“Changes in Democrats’ views largely account for this shift,” reported CATO. “Today, nearly half (47%) of Democrats support increasing immigration to the U.S., compared to 21% of independents and 11% of Republicans.”
“In contrast, in 2001 Gallup found only 17% of Democrats, 16% of independents, and 7% of Republicans wanted to increase immigration. Thus, about 20 years ago partisans had more similar attitudes. Views diverged starting around 2010 (after Obama was elected) when Democratic support began to accelerate.”
