This morning I rediscovered a little booklet by Louise Eggleston, God's Blueprint for Health, Happiness and Triumphant Living, which had been tucked into a drawer and forgotten. Below is something she said on page 10 that I think needs to be pondered by every person.
She was commenting on one of the phrases from I Corinthinians 13:4-8, "Love is never irritated or touchy."
She says, "Holding a hurt in you, unforgiven and not blotted out of your memory, is the root cause of every form of cancer and arthritis. A cancer patient is always a nice person, very sensitive to others attitudes, easily hurt, but he/she never fights back, or tells others about his/her hurt feelings; never returns any evil to the one who hurt him/her, but he/she has not forgiven it and asked God to blot it out of his/her memory. Even in the last hour of life, a cancer patient can be competely cured, if he/she will confess to Christ in him/her, and ask Him to blot it out of his/her memory and send love and forgiveness, or some simple act of Kindness to the one who hurt him/her. We have proved this over and over, so we can stake our lives on its Truth."

This is an enlightening and highly disturbing article by Dr. Mercola. It looks as if it is time for us to return to good ole home cooking.
While high amounts of linoleic acid (LA) is one of the primary reasons why processed foods and fast food are so bad for your health, contaminants like veterinary drugs, antibiotics, hormones and heavy metals — combined with inferior amounts of essential nutrients — are other highly-ranked reasons to steer clear of.
8 of 10 Fast Food Meals Contain Veterinary Drugs
In September 2023, Moms Across America (MAA) submitted food samples from 10 fast food chains to the Health Research Institute, a nonprofit laboratory that tests food for nutrient content, contaminants and toxins. Each food sample was tested for the presence of 104 of the most common veterinary drugs and hormones. You can read the certificate of analysis here.1
Fast food restaurants sampled included McDonald’s, Starbucks, Subway, Chick-fil-A, Burger King, Taco Bell, Chipotle, Dunkin’, Wendy’s and Domino's. Of these, only Chipotle and Subway tested negative for veterinary drugs.
This isn’t all that surprising, considering most chain restaurants rely on beef and chicken from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), where veterinary drugs are routinely used. As explained by MAA:2
"Due to large, industry, confined animal feeding operation conditions, which include extremely close quarters, unsanitary spaces, and high incidence of disease, most of America’s nonorganic meat comes from livestock that is heavily treated with antibiotics, growth hormones, and an anti-parasitic which is also a known aviary contraceptive."
6 of 10 Contain Potentially Risky Antibiotics
Six of the 10 fast food samples (Taco Bell, Dunkin', Wendy’s, Domino's, Burger King and McDonald's)3 contained a veterinary antibiotic ionophore called monensin, which is not approved for human use as it can cause severe harm. The sample with the highest concentration (Taco Bell) contained 0.64 micrograms (mcg). The "acceptable" daily intake is 12.5 mcg/kg of body weight per day.
Monensin also has a number of side effects in animals, including anorexia, diarrhea, depression, ataxia, degeneration of heart and skeletal muscles, necrosis and death.
The antibiotic ionophore narasin, which has the same side effects in animals as monensin, was found in 4 of the 10 samples (Wendy’s, Dunkin’, Domino’s and Starbucks). The highest concentration, 1.53 mcg, was found in a Wendy’s cheeseburger. The three others contained only trace concentrations. The "acceptable" daily intake is 5 mcg/kg per day.
Both monensin and narasin are toxic to dogs and horses and can cause paralysis of the hind legs at extremely low levels. They can also cause acute cardiac rhabdomyocyte degeneration and necrosis in beef and dairy cattle. The reason they’re used in cattle is because they encourage weight gain. MAA commented on these findings:4
"Moms Across America is gravely concerned about our population, especially children, unknowingly eating unprescribed antibiotic ionophores livestock, even at low levels, consistently because of potential damage to the microbiome as well as the risk of antibiotic-resistant bacteria growth.
We question if the side effects of these ionophores in dogs and horses, leaving their hind legs dysfunctional, might be related to millions of Americans presenting with restless leg syndrome and neuropathy, conditions unknown to most humans just a generation or two ago ... Until proven safe, we urge our regulatory agencies, such as the USDA and FDA, to disallow the use of these drugs in our livestock."
‘Fowl Contraceptive’ Detected in Chick-fil-A Sandwich
The Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich was found to contain nicarbazin,5 an antiparasitic drug and fowl contraceptive that causes infertility in certain poultry, such as pigeons and geese. In fact, it’s used to control geese and pigeon populations.
In chickens, it’s used to control certain types of infections and fatten them up. Side effects of the drug include increased sensitivity to heat stress, degenerative processes in the liver and kidneys, and death.
In 2009, the British Soil Association sought to have nicarbazin banned in the U.K., as evidence proving the drug would not cause genetic damage, mutations, birth deformities or malformations was lacking. As a result, a European review board was unable to establish a safe level of residue in chickens and eggs.6
Despite open questions, the European Commission and the UK's Veterinary Medicines Directorate continued to allow routine use of the drug in the poultry industry by using a legal loophole. In the U.S., nicarbazin has been an approved veterinary drug for use as an anticoccidial agent in broiler chickens since 1955.7
The Chick-fil-A sandwich contained 0.36 mcg of nicarbazin and the "acceptable" level is 200 mcg/kg per day.8 The seemingly wide safety margin does not mean there’s nothing to worry about though. As noted by MAA executive director Zen Honeycutt:
"The impact of millions of Americans, especially children and young adults, consuming a known animal contraceptive daily is concerning. With infertility problems on the rise, the reproductive health of this generation is front and center for us, in light of these results.
These are veterinary drugs and hormones ... so the only studies that I have found, and that you will find, will be for animals. [They're] not authorized for humans, and yet they're being allowed [into the food supply]. Some people are consuming this food every day, so we don't know how much they are accumulating in their body."
John Fagan, chief scientist at the Health Research Institute, also noted that the FDA’s acceptable levels are really only meaningful when we’re talking about acute poisoning. In the case of fast food, which some people eat three times a day, the concern is chronic poisoning from the accumulation of toxins over time.9
School Lunches Loaded With Pesticides
In September 2022, MAA also tested 43 school lunches for the presence of not only hormones and veterinary drugs, but also pesticides, heavy metals and nutritional content.10 The results there were even more concerning.
Ninety-five percent of the school lunch items had detectable levels of glyphosate, a carcinogenic and endocrine-disrupting weed killer routinely used on GMO grains that has been linked to liver inflammation, metabolic disorder, cardiovascular disease and cancer, including liver cancer and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.11,12
The highest levels of glyphosate were found in beef taco with soft wheat tortilla (286.77 nanograms per gram) and pizza (156.14 ng/g). As noted by MAA, these levels are highly concerning:13
"If consumed regularly, results with Total Effective Glyphosate above 25 ng/g could have harmful effects. These are levels that, if routinely fed to rats, cause them to show symptoms of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD).
NAFLD is life-threatening and is an epidemic in the USA. These levels of glyphosate in school lunches would be expected to have similar effects on children.
Levels lower than 25 ng/g can be expected to contribute to NAFLD and other pathologies because a child will eat more than one thing during the day that contains glyphosate, and the levels of glyphosate would be cumulative."
Other toxic pesticides found in the school meals include:
- Thiabendazole, which has immune suppressing effects, was found in 27.9% of the samples.
- Piperonal butoxide, present in 18 of the 43 samples (41%), is a developmental toxin that causes birth defects and neurodevelopment disruptions.
- Pyrimethanil, detected at 595.04 ppb on an apple, has been shown to cause thyroid tumors in animals.
School Meals: Drugs, Heavy Metals, but Few Nutrients
Nine of the 43 school lunches also contained four types of veterinary drugs and hormones, and a shocking 100% of meals contained heavy metals at levels up to 6,293 times higher than the maximum levels allowed in drinking water. Levels ranged from 0.5 ppb to 94.4 mcg/kg.
The highest levels of heavy metals were cadmium and lead, found at up to 46.8 mcg/kg (cadmium) and 94.4 mcg/kg (lead). Meanwhile, most of the meals were "abysmally low" in essential nutrients. As reported by the MAA:
"An advisor has calculated the contribution that the sample food would make to a person’s nutritional requirements, assuming that they ate a 4 oz portion (standardly used in nutritional analysis) and assuming that this food contributed ¼ of their nutrition for the day.
‘The nutritional items are consistently very deficient in Copper and are also consistently deficient (but to a lesser extent) in calcium, potassium, and phosphorous. Magnesium, zinc, and manganese are deficient in many of the samples, roughly 50%. The only mineral that is consistently meeting or exceeding requirements is iron. That is good but it is not enough!’ ...
Without proper nutrients, our children’s brains will not function properly, and their bodies will not be developed as needed. Often children with learning and behavioral issues are deficient in just one or two minerals or vitamins; when those nutrients are added to their diet, their mental, physical, and behavioral issues subside. Even violent behavior is discontinued. Our children must have proper nutrient-dense food."
Fast Food Cannot Sustain You
After completing the veterinary drug analysis on 10 fast food meals, MAA went on to test 21 fast food brands for essential minerals, and the top 10 brands for B vitamins.
"The testing was conducted out of concern for America's skyrocketing mental and physical health crisis," Honeycutt writes in her October 18, 2023, report.14
"Eighty-five million Americans eat fast food every day. Fast food companies often supply a significant portion of the 30 million school meals served to our children each day.
The quality of the food, including the contamination of agrochemicals and lack of nutrients due to toxic chemical inputs, contributes to our mental and physical health issues. One in five Americans have a mental illness, and 54% of our children have a chronic health issue.
For many impoverished children, school meals are the only food they consume each day. Numerous studies have linked toxins in the food supply and lack of nutrition to conditions such as autism, depression, aggression, suicide, and homicides. This report will ... disclose the mineral, vitamin B, and calorie levels in the top 20 fast food restaurants/ school lunch suppliers."
Based on the micronutrient testing done on school lunches in 2022 (above), you can probably guess what this nutritional testing revealed. The mineral content of the fast food tested did not meet the recommended daily requirements of calcium, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc and iron.
For example, the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of copper is 900 mcg per day, and Chick-fil-A’s chicken nuggets contain just 1.4 mcg of copper per gram. To meet the RDA, an adult would need to consume nearly nine servings of nuggets.
Signs of copper deficiency include fatigue, poor concentration and low mood. Also, "children with autism and violent behavior often have an imbalance of copper," Honeycutt writes.
Fast Food Nearly Devoid of B Vitamins
Even worse, zero amounts of vitamin B9 or B12 were detected in the top 10 fast food samples, and deficiencies in these B vitamins can lead to fatigue, digestive issues, heart problems, nervous system disorders and erratic behavior. Indeed, vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is known as "the energy vitamin." Your body requires it for energy production.
It also plays an important role in neurological function, and deficiency can culminate in a range of mental health symptoms, from irritability and depression to dementia and even psychosis. You can learn more about vitamin B12’s role in mental health in this November 6, 2022 article.
Warning signs of B12 deficiency include brain fog, memory lapses, mood swings, apathy, fatigue, muscle weakness and tingling in the extremities. Unfortunately, B12 deficiency may not present itself for several years, so by the time you notice symptoms, you may be quite deficient.
The fact that NONE of the top 10 fast foods contained B12 is rather remarkable when you consider B12-rich foods include beef, seafood, chicken and eggs. Beef and chicken are staples in fast food, yet fast food beef and chicken provide no B12 at all! If that doesn’t convince you that fast food meat is nowhere near the same as grass fed organic meat, I don’t know what will.
A woman would need to consume 333 servings of Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches and a man would need to eat 380 servings to meet the RDA for niacin.
Levels of B3 (niacin) were also abysmal. The RDA for women is 14 mg per day and for men it’s 16 mg. To meet that RDA, a woman would need to consume 333 servings of Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches (at a serving size of 210 grams) and a man would need to eat 380 servings.
Chipotle’s carnitas bowl with everything, which had the highest amount of B3, still requires you to eat eight servings if you’re a woman and nine servings if you’re a man, to meet your RDA of niacin. As reported by MAA:15
"On average, adults would need to consume between 64-73 servings of the top 10 fast foods to get proper vitamin B3 nutrition per day. Alternatively, a portion of liver (pasture-raised, ideally) or a can of tuna (SafeCatch) would supply enough vitamin B3 or niacin for proper nutrition for a day. Clearly, cheap fast food is not as cheap as it seems when one factors in the value of the nutrients provided in the purchase."

I found this recipe on the same site I found the Herbed Cheese recipe which is posted below. Since it was written for an InstaPot, which I don't have, I changed a few things and cooked it as a casserole. If you have an InstaPot the whole process would be much easier and take less time. I forgot to add the artichokes when I made it, so I made that optional on the recipe since we thought it was excellent without. (I plan to try adding them the next time I make this and see whether it is a good addition.)
If you are like me, you welcome suggestions of good recipes to help you get out of the rut of cooking the same thing all the time. I think you will like this.
Italian Sausage Pasta
1 lb box pasta (medium shells is best)
1 lb. Italian Sausage sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1/4 c. butter
1/2 onion, chopped
1 T. garlic, minced

I believe I have found an herbed cheese recipe to use with the steak sauce I wrote about last time. It is delicious on crackers, as an addition to recipes and spread on a filet before the whole thing is drenched in the yummy red wine steak sauce. I found it on Pressure Luck Cooking.
Here is the recipe:
Garlic Herb Cheese (Copycat Boursin) Recipe
2 8-ounce bricks of cream cheese, at room temperature so it's softened
1 stick (8 ounces) salted (or unsalted) butter, at room temperature so it's softened
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 cloves (1 tablespoon) garlic, minced or pressed
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Take a silicone, rubber or wooden mixing spoon or spatula and mix together, folding it over until well combined with even seasoning distribution or use a hand mixer.
Once done, you can either serve immediately with crackers or in a recipe or store for later. If storing for later, keep the cheese in the large mixing bowl with a lid on top or divide into 4-5 small ramekins for pre-measured portions (each ramekin will be equivalent to about one 5.2-ounce package of Boursin). Cover with plastic wrap if placing in the fridge where it will last up to a month or the freezer for several months!

On special occasions we often go to an excellent (destination dining) restaurant, Andrew's At The Westbrook, about 30 miles from our house. I always order the Herbed Cheese Filet with Red Wine/Shallot Sauce because it is heavenly! I have never tried any other main course there because I love it so much! I always recommend it to anyone who goes with us as "must try" because it is absolutely delicious! I have wanted to find a recipe that captures the taste of the sauce. Yesterday I found one that came very close in the sauce recipe for Roast Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce.
Here's the original recipe:
Red Wine Sauce
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
¾ cup finely chopped shallots, from 2-3 large shallots
1¼ cups red wine
3 cups beef broth
6 fresh thyme sprigs
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Melt 5 tablespoons of the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the shallots and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the wine, beef broth, thyme sprigs, salt, pepper and sugar, and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by about half.
While the liquid is reducing, place the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl and soften in the microwave, if necessary (it should be soft but not melted). Add the flour and, using a small spoon, mix into a smooth paste.
Once the wine mixture is reduced, reduce the heat to low and remove the thyme sprigs. Whisk the flour-butter paste, a tablespoon at a time, into the simmering liquid, and simmer for a few minutes, until the sauce is thickened. Set aside. (The sauce can be made up to this point and refrigerated up to 3 days ahead of time.)

Our corrupt government is trying to bring back Covid, mask mandates, vaccine mandates, lockdowns, etc. It is time for us to stand up! We will not comply! They fooled many of us once, but we will not be fooled again. Just say "NO" and refuse to do business with anyone who is attempting to enforce these unconstitutional regulations and mandates! It may inconvenience us for a little while but they will be put out of business. Be sure to have food and water for a few weeks. If so, you cannot be forced to wear a mask in order to buy food because you already have it.

Chase Shuts Down Bank Accounts of Mercola and Key Employees
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
July 13, 2023, JP Morgan Chase Bank suddenly informed me they are closing all of my business accounts, both banking and investment accounts, along with the personal accounts of my CEO, my CFO and their respective spouses and children.
No reason for the decision was given, other than there was "unexpected activity" on an unspecified account. The oldest of these accounts has been active for 18 years.
This is what the new social credit system looks like, and what every soul on the planet can expect from the central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) that are being rolled out. Go against the prevailing narrative of the day, and your financial life will be deleted with the push of a button.
It's difficult enough trying to navigate this hurdle today. Once everything is digitized, cash eradicated and the social credit system completely integrated and automated, this kind of retaliatory action for wrongthink could be a death sentence for some people.
My CFO, Amalia Legaspi, whose Chase accounts — including a joint account with her husband — were closed along with mine, is now struggling to figure out how to pay for her husband's health care in the Philippines. He's bedridden with dementia and is wholly dependent on her financial support, and she's not allowed to open another bank account in his name.
"I have to provide all the legal documentations including notarized physicians' affidavit from the Philippines to prove that my husband is incapable of handling his finances and request the Federal to directly deposit the pension to my own personal account," Legaspi told Florida's Voice.1
Legaspi's son's account — which he's using to pay for college expenses — was also cancelled. My CEO, Steven Rye, believes his and his wife's accounts were shut down because of my opinions on COVID-19. He told Florida's Voice:2
"I believe they cancelled all of the accounts because of Dr. Mercola's (our employer) opinions. He has carried a contradictory view throughout the COVID narrative and co-authored the best-selling book 'The Truth About COVID-19,' which exposed the likelihood that this virus was engineered in a laboratory funded by the NIH."
In May 2023, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation specifically prohibiting financial institutions from denying or canceling services based on political or religious beliefs.3
Apparently, Chase Bank is bowing to some other "authority," and perhaps they refuse to cite a specific reason for the cancellation, "for legal reasons," is because they know they're acting unlawfully.
Generational Punishment for Wrongthink
On top of closing the accounts of Rye and his wife, Rye also was told his young children will not be able to open accounts with Chase Bank.
"It's just hard to believe that your family, your wife, your kids can't have a bank account because of the opinions of your employer and they've never done anything wrong. We all have completely clear records,"Rye told Florida's Voice.4
In a voicemail reply, a Chase Bank representative told Rye the reason for closing his personal accounts and that of his wife could not be disclosed "for legal reasons." He was, however, told he could submit paperwork to have their accounts reconsidered. "We are going to try because you're a good client of our institution," the representative said.
While a common suggestion is to "just go with a small bank," this is not an ideal solution for many companies, as small banks are getting destroyed and won't get bailouts. Even if a small local bank is FDIC insured, that only covers up to $250,000.00 of total deposits between all accounts. That amount would not cover a single payroll.
As an online business, you also have requirements for payment gateways and merchant accounts — and cryptocurrency does not have the infrastructure or general acceptance to support most businesses.

Chase Bank Holds Moral Low Ground
Mercola Market has more than 150 employees and thousands of vendors that farm, process, manufacture, distribute and manage the logistics of our business. Will the banks go after all of our employees? Will they start closing the accounts of our contractors? Will they go after our customers?
Again, this is the social credit system in action. Just imagine how easy it will be to control people's expressions and actions once all currency is digital, centrally controlled and mandated.
This could happen to anyone. My CFO and CEO are not me. They're not directly engaged in the dissemination of my views, and their spouses and children most certainly have nothing to do with my business or my views. Yet they're being "punished" too, merely because they're related to people who work for me.
Imagine being retaliated against something your neighbor, your employer, a friend or some distant relative has said or done. That's our future, unless we all refuse to play along. It's crucial to reject CBDCs and to do everything in your power to not enter into that system. The life and freedom of your children and grandchildren depend on it. Your actions today will shape the future of your descendants, perhaps in perpetuity.
In closing, let me remind you that if Chase Bank is trying to stand on some moral high ground, they can't. While they may think they're doing the world a favor by debanking so-called "anti-vaxxers," they had no problem aiding and abetting child sex trafficking efforts by the likes of Jeffrey Epstein. They didn't cut ties with that notorious pedophile until a few months before his death.5
A spokesperson for Chase told The Epoch Times6 that "most account closures are done for anti-money laundering or identity verification purposes." So, the grossly tainted proceeds from Epstein's disgusting ventures were good enough for JP Morgan Chase, but deposits from a business selling natural health products and organic food is at risk for money laundering and is bad for business. That's the moral and ethical ground Chase Bank is standing on.

Have you ever watched The Fall of the Cabal by Janet Ossebaard? It is a series of 10 videos exposing among other things child trafficking and many involved. If not you haven't seen it, I recommend it as a wake-up call. You will be amazed at the association of so many familiar people and things/events that Janet Ossebaard links through her research. She continually asks you to do your own research to prove to yourself that what she is presenting is true. She has also produced a Sequel to the Fall of the Cabal of 10 more episodes and continues to add to it. I think the total is now 27. Here is a link to all of them on Bitchute.

For most of the time since the beginning of the Covid scamdemic our small non-profit committee has been working on developing a new park in our community. We began in June, 2020. A 5 acre (on two levels) wooded parcel of land that hadn't been used in several years was donated to our committee. We named it The Woodlands and began by clearing brush and an old barn off the land and then started adding equipment. Our goal was to make it a fun place for adults as well as children since there are so few places adults can have fun.
We are almost through with adding equipment. (Hopefully, we can add a couple more basket swings to the lower level since they are so popular). We still have a lot to do as far as maintenance and cosmetic improvements.
I wanted you to see what we started with and the fun things we now have in The Woodlands. (Since I have been overseeing all this work it is one reason I haven't spent much time on my blog in the last couple of years.)
The old barn on the property that had to be removed.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Interviewed by Bill Maher
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
June 26, 2023, Bill Maher, host of the Club Random Podcast, interviewed Robert F. Kennedy Jr., 2024 presidential candidate for the Democratic Party (video above).
They discussed the Kennedy family’s political history, legacy media’s fierce opposition to his bid for the presidency, ideological changes within the Democratic Party, the tragic assassination of his father mere minutes after winning California’s Democratic Primary in 1968,1 and why the claim that vaccines are “safe and effective” is false.
Regulatory Capture Is a Threat to Public Health
Kennedy highlights the link between regulatory capture by Big Pharma and the lack of vaccine safety studies. He points out that in his career as an environmental lawyer, he spent a great deal of time suing the Environmental Protection Agency over its approval of toxic chemicals, so he was well aware of the kinds of conflicts of interest present.
Thus, when he was dragged into the vaccine safety issue, the realization that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were also compromised by industry came as no great surprise. As he told me when I interviewed him back in March 2023:
“I've been an environmental attorney and advocate for 40 years, and I saw the impact of agency capture. That's why I was able to recognize it so easily when I saw it in the pharmaceutical industry. All these agencies are captured. The pharmaceutical industry owns the National Institutes of Health ... CDC, FDA. The coal and oil industry and the pesticide industry own the EPA.”
Kennedy also points out the importance of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, which granted vaccine makers immunity from liability when children were injured by their vaccines.
This law was passed because vaccine makers admitted vaccines were unavoidably unsafe, and they could not afford to make vaccines if people were allowed to sue them for damages. So, the government created a federal vaccine court to adjudicate these cases and pay out damages.
Importantly, vaccine makers were given blanket immunity “no matter how grievous the injury, no matter how reckless the behavior, no matter how shoddy their manufacturing and testing processes,” Kennedy says, adding, “and the reason we gave them that liability shield is because they were able to convince the Reagan White House that vaccines could not be made safe. They’re going to injure certain people.”
So, why is there even an argument about this, when vaccine makers, decades ago, admitted vaccines could not be made safe for everyone, and government agreed?
Vaccine Injuries Are Common, but Underreported
The next question is, are vaccine injuries rare? And if so, how rare? According to the CDC, vaccine injuries are very rare, affecting only 1 in 1 million. However, they’ve known this is a lie since 2010, when the CDC finally studied that question. The so-called Lazarus Study2 revealed that the real-world injury rate is 2.6%, or about 1 in 37 people — a far cry from 1 in 1 million.
As noted by the authors of that study, “Adverse events from drugs and vaccines are common, but underreported ... fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.” They also stressed that “Low reporting rates preclude or slow the identification of ‘problem’ drugs and vaccines that endanger public health.”3
Maher tries to argue that just because someone experiences a problem after a vaccine, that doesn’t mean the vaccine caused that problem. People have underlying conditions and the like. However, as noted by Kennedy, vaccine makers are supposed to design products that are safe for all people, not just the super-healthy minority.
After all, more than half of the American population have chronic diseases that might make them more prone to vaccine injury, so arguing that underlying health problems are to blame for vaccine injuries is hardly a solid argument. The question is, if so many people are at risk for vaccine injury, why aren’t we making sure vaccines are as safe as they can possibly get?
Vaccines Did Not Save Millions From Infectious Disease
Kennedy also rebuts Maher’s argument that vaccines have saved millions of lives that would otherwise have been lost to infectious diseases. In 2000, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health reviewed vital statistics data to assess to what degree vaccines and other interventions contributed to the massive decrease in infectious disease mortality in the 20th century.4
Interestingly, medical interventions such as antibiotics and vaccines were found to have played a very minute role. The explanation for the improvement in public health was improvements in nutrition and sanitation.
Kennedy also cites the McKinlay and McKinlay study,5 published in 1977, which found that less than 1% of the decline in mortality from infectious disease in the U.S. in the 20th century could be attributed to modern medical interventions, including drugs, vaccines and surgeries.
Antidepressants and the Rise of Gun Violence
Maher also brings up Kennedy’s views on antidepressants and their potential role in mass shootings.6 Kennedy accurately points out that selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) carry a black box warning that these drugs can cause suicidal and homicidal ideation.
So, clearly, they can play a role, and this connection is something Kennedy believes we need to seriously investigate and not simply dismiss offhand as unimportant. Indeed, research shows:
- 31 drugs, including 11 antidepressants, six sedatives and three ADHD medications, account for 78.8% of all cases of violence toward others reported to the FDA.7
- A 2021 analysis of the Violence Project database, which is funded by the U.S. Justice Department, revealed 23% of mass shooters were on psychiatric drugs.8,9
- According to CDC Surveillance for Violent Deaths data, 35.3% of those who committed suicide in 2013 tested positive for antidepressants at the time of death.10,11
But despite obvious warning signals, the government will not study the role of antidepressants in gun violence because they don’t want the answer. And they don’t want the answer because it might force them to take a stand against the drug industry. They also won’t study the role of violent video games and the like, for the same reason.
What the Science Says About the COVID Shot
Maher and Kennedy also discuss the potential risks and benefits of the experimental COVID jab. Maher got it, and shortly thereafter tested positive for COVID. He suspects there’s a link. But he also believes the reason his illness was so mild might have been because he got the jab.
I would argue that COVID was a nothingburger for the vast majority of people, jabbed or not, but Kennedy opts instead to discuss what the science says about the effectiveness of the shots. He cites a Cleveland Clinic study posted online in December 2022, which concluded that:12,13
- The shots provided protection for a couple of months, after which effectiveness wanes precipitously, and after approximately seven months, you are more susceptible to COVID than before (negative efficacy).
- The risk of COVID-19 infection increased with each vaccine dose. Those who had received two doses were 2.6 times more likely to get infected than the unvaccinated, and those with three or more doses had a 3.4 times higher risk.
- The bivalent COVID-19 booster was only 29% effective in preventing infection during the timeframe when it was well-matched to the circulating strain.
While not discussed in this interview, CDC data also reveal that by April 2022, most COVID deaths were occurring among the jabbed and boosted, and this even though numbers are artificially suppressed by only counting people as “vaccinated” or “boosted” if they’re at least two weeks out from their last shot. As reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF):14
“In fall 2021, about 3 in 10 adults dying of COVID-19 were vaccinated or boosted. But by January 202215... about 4 in 10 deaths were vaccinated or boosted. By April 2022 ... data16 show that about 6 in 10 adults dying of COVID-19 were vaccinated or boosted, and that’s remained true through at least August 2022 (the most recent month of data).”
Who Really Shot Robert F. Kennedy?
At the very end of the interview, Kennedy tells the story of his father’s assassination, which took place June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel, minutes after winning the primary election. While Sirhan Sirhan, a Jordanian man, was caught firing at Kennedy and was convicted of the murder, the real killer was a security guard hired for the event named Thane Eugene Cesar.17
Cesar was a CIA operative who worked for Lockheed and, according to Kennedy, he was a “vocal racist who hated the Kennedys” for their advocacy of civil rights for Blacks. Basically, Sirhan was a distraction. His frontal attack allowed Cesar to fatally shoot RFK from behind. Cesar passed away September 2019 at the age of 77.18 Sirhan, now 79 years old, is still in prison and Gov. Gavin Newsom has repeatedly denied his parole recommended by the parole board.

Have you seen any of Mikki Willis' great documentaries? His first was Plandemic 1, then Plandemic 2: InDOCTORnation, and just this weekend his new one, Plandemic 3: The Great Awakening was released. I highly recommend them all. They present truth that must be heard so that we won't succumb to another "brainwashing" (my word.). I will post links below so you can easily watch them. Please pass on the links.

In Dr. Mercola's email today he discusses how to save your life when hospitalized and mentions a website where you could download consent forms to be initialed and signed and then sent to your doctor, nurse, hospital, etc. to ensure you are not given medication you do not wish to have. Here is a summary of the article which can be found for a short time on Mercola.com.
- Laura Bartlett and Greta Crawford have founded an organization to address the forced treatments patients receive when they’re hospitalized for COVID-19, but the same strategy can be used to protect yourself against other medical hazards as well
- The Caregivers and Consent document they created is an “advance decision” document. So, the moment you enter the hospital, the hospital staff know what they can and cannot do to you; they are legally required to respect your current care decisions. And unlike an Advance Directive (which only kicks in when you are incapacitated) the Caregivers and Consent document goes into effect immediately
- It’s important to complete and notarize your Caregivers and Consent document BEFORE you ever need to go to the hospital
- Make sure you send the completed, signed and notarized document to the CEO of the hospital in two ways: (1) via a professional courier (one that specializes in delivering legal documents); and (2) via the Postal system with certified mail, return receipt requested. The CEO is responsible for all legal business relating to the hospital, including the medical records, so the CEO, not your attending physician, is the one whose responsibility it is to get your consent document entered into your electronic medical record
- Make at least 10 copies of the signed, notarized document and keep one copy on your person, in case you ever have an accident or acute illness requiring hospitalization. Also provide copies to the attending physician and nurse once hospitalized
- Also, should you become hospitalized (and therefore unable to personally send the document to the CEO), designate a family member or friend to send your Caregivers and Consent document on your behalf. Additional recommendations to ensure your safety are included
Here is a link if you want to look over the document and/or download it.

EXPRESS GRATITUDE by Dr. Mercola
According to the Harris Poll Happiness Index, a mere 1 in 3 Americans report being "very happy." More than half say they're frustrated at or by work.1 Other research suggests nearly 1 in 4 experience no life enjoyment at all.2 The good news is, small changes in perspective and/or behavior can add up, and practicing gratitude may be at the top of the list of strategies known to boost happiness and life satisfaction.
In "The Little Book of Gratitude," Robert Emmons notes, "We did not … get to where we are in life by ourselves. So, living in gratitude is living in truth. It is the most accurate and honest approach to life." According to Emmons, gratitude involves "affirming the good and recognizing its sources. It is the understanding that life owes me nothing and all the good I have is a gift."
Gratitude is also a form of generosity, because it involves offering or extending "something" to another person, even if it's only a verbal affirmation of thanks. After all, it's not yourself you are grateful for but rather something or someone outside of yourself. And generosity has also been shown to augment happiness. In fact, generosity and happiness are neurally linked. As noted by the authors of a recent study:3,4
"[W]e predicted that the neural link between generosity and happiness would involve functional interactions between brain regions engaged in generous behavior [temporoparietal junction (TPJ)] and those mediating happiness (ventral striatum). The results confirmed our hypotheses.
We found significantly higher levels of generous behavior and happiness, as reflected by greater TPJ activity for generous choices and generosity-related connectivity of the TPJ with striatal happiness regions in the experimental group.
We thus conclude that the interplay of these brain regions links commitment-induced generosity with happiness … [T]he amount spent did not matter … [E]ven little things have a beneficial effect — like bringing coffee to one's office mates in the morning."
Commit to Cultivating an Attitude of Gratitude
If your happiness could use a boost, this year, commit to cultivating an attitude of gratitude — every day. Gratitude not only paves the way to life satisfaction, research has also demonstrated it is the single best predictor of good relationships, and benefits both sanity and physical health. Enhancing your well-being, then, may be as simple as taking the time each day to reflect on what you're thankful for.
A simple and proven way of doing this is to keep a gratitude journal, in which you document the things you're grateful for each day. In one study,5 participants who kept a gratitude diary and reflected on what they were grateful for just four times a week for three weeks improved their depression, stress and happiness scores.
A mindfulness intervention, consisting of a mindfulness diary and mindfulness meditation, led to similar improvements. In another study, people who kept a gratitude journal reported exercising more, and had fewer visits to the doctor.6
The Many Health Benefits of Gratitude by Dr. Mercola
Aside from augmenting happiness and life satisfaction, gratitude also produces measurable effects on a number of bodily systems, including beneficial effects on mood and pleasure-related neurotransmitters, reproductive and social bonding hormones, cognition, blood pressure and more. Importantly, it lowers the stress hormone cortisol and inflammatory cytokines, which are often elevated if you have chronic disease. Health benefits associated with gratitude include:7,8
