Federal agents have arrested 32-year old pharmaceutical company CEO, Martin Shkreli, who successfully jacked up the price of a single Big Pharma pill from $13.50 to $750. But it seems this gouging of Turing Pharmaceuticals’ anti-infective drug, Daraprim, by 5000% was not Shkreli’s only crime. He now faces charges on securities fraud linked to a firm he founded.

Shkreli has defiantly defended his greed, saying that he would have raised drug prices even higher “since shareholders expect him to maximize profits,” but the federal case being brought against him now has nothing to do with charging people ridiculous prices for a life-saving pill. He has apparently also been playing another shell game – hiding some money here, taken from over there – that is far from legal.

Prosecutors in Brooklyn have charged him with illegally taking stock from Retrophin Inc., a biotechnology firm he started in 2011, and using it to pay off debts from unrelated business dealings.

According to Bloomberg, his defunct hedge fund, MSMB Capital Management, lost millions, but he played a dirty hand to try to save it. He is alleged to have made secret payoffs and set up sham consulting arrangements. A New York lawyer, Evan Greebel, was also arrested recently. He is accused of conspiring with Shkreli in part of this scheme.

The Big Pharma tycoon is also known for squandering $3 million of investors’ funds at the age of 26, losing almost all of it within a year.

Book Review: Words To The Wise – A Practical Guide To Esoteric Sciences by Manly P. Hall

In Words To The Wise, A Practical Guide To The Esoteric Sciences, Manly P. Hall gives a detailed examination of knowledge descending from the ancient mystery schools.

Hall delves into the finer strands of all that is metaphysics, religion and spirituality in a way that’s easy to comprehend for a novice, and yet sophisticated in depth for people that have interested in the subject for quite a while and are searching for more substantial information.

Beginning with the true and false paths to wisdom, Hall picks apart many of the aspects that can be confusing for people given how much information is out there. Keep in mind, the original version of this book was published in 1936, with the updated version revised in 1963.

That being said, the information is still quite pertinent given the unfortunately slow [spiritual] development of most of society at our current moment.

Hall speaks of the importance of learning from the ancient teachers – the upper echelons of ‘an unbroken metaphysical tradition’. Teachers such as, Plato, Aristotle, Hippocrates, Plutarch, Pythagoras, Proclus, and many many more. He even mentions some books which are vital to sift through and learn from that should be part of any student/researcher’s library.

Throughout the length of the book, Manly P. Hall talks about the importance to be able to hone in much of the misinformation/disinformation that is prevalent in this field, and he even gives thorough advice as to how to go about doing that.

Hall analyzes the seven requisites for a person of character, and thence goes into how to go about seeing what type of mystery schools are out there.

Ultimately, Hall goes into the importance for the individual to work on [spiritual] self-mastery above all. This notion is harpooned from countless angles and highly cautioned upon given the fact that the modern world religions, so called ascended masters, and even modern mystery schools, all attempt to tell you what to think, and not how to think. This is why Hall focuses so much on being discerning in this particular abstruse field.

Many great things have been said about this book, and for good reason. It offers valuable information that can save you a lot of precious time that can be used incisively elsewhere.

If you are familiar with Manly P. Hall’s work, then you know the realize the high quality of his information. And if you don’t, you really ought to take a gander at it. It will be well worth your time.

To finalize, will leave you all with a snippet of the author’s mentality:

“Philosophy elevates man to the level of truth, creating within him the capacity to sense and to realize, to visualize and to comprehend.”
– Manly P. Hall

Approaching the bottom of the 9th of the year, the Holidays are winding down.

People are snazzy, have a pep in their step, and are spending dollars ubiquitously like their lives depend on it.

Its that last fact that is often quite overlooked.

The holidays are used by the establishment in a myriad of ways. Most duplicitous among the underhanded reasons lies the profit motive. This is the least analyzed, and often most harmful of all notions parroted during the holiday season to individuals & families.

Why is such the case? Because many folks will go all-in during holiday shopping, and some do it without even having the funds to do so [i.e. credit cards, loans, borrowed money, etc.]

If the holidays truly are about quantity shopping quality time, as many people are quick to expound, then the material component to the holidays isn’t needed to carry out such.

For something to have meaning, the time/experience/memory had should be exceptional to the individual. This, and this alone, should be what is related as a message. However, we know the establishment and deceitful media does not ever come close to that idea without touching the material realm.

This isn’t to say that a gift, something tangible, cannot have meaning. Far from it.

Meaning, most of the time, comes from the eyes of the beholder in a sense. Overlooked many times though, is the fact that meaning many times comes from how others see things, which just so happen to be material a lot [most?] of the time.

For instance, an object by itself is just an object. But we have all seen the power that any material object can have – no matter what it is – over people when others besides themselves crave it.

If an object isn’t lusted for by thousands, people usually don’t give it a second look. However, the second ‘everyone’ wants something, then its en vogue, in style, the new fad.

Some examples of this are phones, games, toys, purposes, clothing, brands [which comes from the word branding, which has a nefarious history, but that’s another story] so on and so forth.

At its most basic premise, what we are talking about here is the overwhelming urge to shop, for the sake of shopping. It is recreational shopping at its finest.

And if that is what is carried out, rather than the search of something meaningful for the happiness of other, then its void of substance.

Why is this? Because shopping can be done at any moment in the year, any time, any place, any locale, and the only reason most people shop during the holidays is because the corporate conglomerates and media have helped socially engineer retail rapture to unheard of levels.

The amount spent during the holidays is ludicrous. It’s the type of resources used that could literally change entire families/communities/regions, but are used to shop for things that most people aren’t in need of.

Sure, it’s called meaningful, but why should something material that’s purchased during a time that you’re ingratiated to spend money on, have any more meaning than any other time that you are taught to spend money on?

Here are some memes expounded by the establishment/media and how much money was expected to be spent for each particular holiday:

– If its 4th of July, you’re a patriot. Of course, with the establishment expecting $6 Billion for this holiday, why wouldn’t they carry out propaganda. True Translation: spend money to ‘support’ your country corporations.

– If you spend money on Labor Day, you’ve earned it due to hard work. Then again, with the establishment having expected $13.5 Billion to be spent on labor day what wouldn’t they say? True Translation: you’ve earned the right to line corporate pockets to the hilt.

– If its during Halloween, then it’s a celebration and whathaveyou. And this has become an enormous time of the year for money spent compared to what it used to be decades ago. If you’re skeptical it was estimated Americans planned on spending $7.4 Billion on Halloween alone. True Translation: spend money because that’s what celebrations are for. P.S. That includes 350 million dollars for pet Costumes. You read that correct.  

– Thanksgiving? One needs to be thankful of course! Coupled to this is Black Friday, in which people spent in 2014 $89 Billion in online sales alone. True Translation: spend even more money.

– Finally, Christmas. The reason for all bliss to exist. The propaganda is extremely high, especially given the fact that Americans are expected to spend $600 Billion dollars. True Translation: quantity/objects are where meanings are at, thus, spend money.

In none of the examples above is the press ever even dabbling into just spending quality time with people, without lining the pockets of the corporate cartels. The mere thought is sacrilegious. Such is an act of suicide for presstitutes to engage in such abhorrent behaviour. How dare they?

This is why it rests solely on the individual – the foundation of society – to be prudent, incisive, and rather discriminatory in the way that any money is spent, especially during the holiday season. Coupled with that is the fact that the very loot money that’s gathered by the corporate crooks is the profits used to throw the populace under the bus at every given turn.

That laughing sound behind the curtains is irony by way.

However, complaining about corporations that ‘run the show’ and giving them dollars day in and out, every holiday in and out, having that money used against you, is shooting yourself in the foot is shooting yourself in both feet and blaming the weapon for you shooting yourself.

Spend money? Sure. We just be wise about it.

Just remember, quality is quality.   Quantity is quantity. Some people use them interchangeably, – unknowingly [more gifts = more love] – but they are not.

In reality: quality = love / more quality = more love.

Now there’s a choice you won’t hear the current paradigm expound upon any time soon.

Be prudent.

Have fun.

Enjoy your time with those you love. That’s what life is really about.

Social Engineering – The Muslim Migration Machination & Media Manipulation

By: Zy Marquiez
December 28, 2015

We are seeing unprecedented turmoil in various regions of the world.   This is taking place for various reasons. Regardless of the reasons though, for simplicity’s sake, said turmoil is displacing an enormous amount of Muslim people.   These people are opting to vacate the region of chaos for safer grounds. At least, that’s what we’re being told.

Western Nations in the European Union, as well as the United States, have been [or are beginning to] having a notable amount of immigrants.

This has caused great concern among some populations. Main reason being that the Muslim people have been marred with a ‘terrorist’ identity that the mainstream media presstitutes keep pushing, as if the actions of a few, would signify the actions of the many.

Please keep in mind, this mass migration also serves the nefarious purpose to lock down borders and further consolidate the European Union, and other countries as well.

With a global population of 1.6 billion, the Muslim population encompasses about 20% of the entire population on Earth. With that said, and given how much the MSM loves to stoke the left vs. right paradigm, you would figure that the Earth would be in utter chaos given how, according to them, all Muslims are terrorist. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Are there radical Muslims? Sure. Nobody is debating that.

But are the actions of the few, to be used to castrate the many?

Let’s follow along MSM dense ‘logic’ here.

They extol that when the few carries out an attack, of course we should blame the many.

They argue that because two Muslim people allegedly carried out the attack in San Bernardino, even though witnesses reported seeing three white guys, [P.S. my friends, myself and countless others saw this mentioned live on multiple MSM streams online by the way] all Muslims are thus guilty.

Just for the sake of discussion, let’s engage on the same type of logic brainwashing.

Every year, like clockwork, errors in the medical system cause 119,000 deaths a year from errors during treatments, and 106,000 deaths per year from FDA-approved [yes, you heard that right FDA-approved] medical drugs. That would also pin those deaths as the third leading cause of death, as of 2013 even though those numbers are extremely old.

Those numbers were outlined by Dr. Barbara Starfield many years ago – who has impeccable credentials – in a study called “Is US Health Really The Best In The World?” there are essentially a minimum of 225,000 deaths that take place every year via the medical system.

The study can be found here.

Following mainstream media & establishment logic, since most Doctors/nurses/pharmaceutical employees in the US are white, that would make all white people guilty of negligence if not outright murder. That’s MSM logic propaganda/brainwashing.

See how ridiculous that sounds?

But you won’t hear those numbers in the mainstream press. Why? Because that’s not ‘part of the plan’.

The mainstream media only reports on that which is important convenient to stoke the left/right white/black democrat/republican muslim/christian paradigms et al.

Two muslim people Three heavily armed white men carry out an attack, and everyone’s losing their minds.

Big Medica kills 225,000 every single year, conservatively and the population hears less than nothing.

That is because knowledge like that would throw a wrench into our carefully orchestrated and manipulated reality. Never mind the fact that 70% of news advertising comes from Big Pharma. If that isn’t incentive to not bite the hand that feeds, nothing is.

Knowing this, does it stand to reason we should just take mainstream media propaganda at face value, or should we do some discernment and carefully pick apart the whole narrative with a fine-toothed comb to see what’s really what?

You decide.

In the end, we always do.

The Breakaway Guide To The CDC [Part 2]

By: Zy Marquiez
December 27, 2015

If the CDC’s [Centers For Disease Control] credibility [or lack thereof] hasn’t been teetering on the brink, then it has surely has fallen of the deep-end.

Over a year ago, the CDC was banging the drumbeats of war pandemics in an effort to fuel fears of ebola.

The CDC’s ineptitude was proven – yet again – with the fact that they admitted that Ebola can now spread through the air, despite them saying not long ago contradictory statements.

Of course, the widespread fear of Ebola spawned intense fear, and the main example is the fact that , 250,000 hazmat suits were sent to Dallas, TX.

There were many folks attempting to make this alleged pandemic [in which nigh nobody seemed to get sick] seem far larger than it really was.

Yet, even if it was a real pandemic, one death in the amount of time that it was here on US soil, coupled with the fact that the exposure that had taken place [via incompetence, or worse] was quite common, made all that took place seem rather weak and all the intense fear overblown. Fear sells though.

There are worse issues that are taking place on a daily basis, year in and year out.

One of these has been outlined and spoken at length by investigative journalist/researcher Jon Rappoport of NomoreFakeNews.com.

Rappoport has elucidated numerous times about the rather incisive example of this is the fact that at according a study conducted by Dr. Barbara Starfield in July 26, 2000 that was published in the JAMA titled Is US Health Really the Best in the World?” 225,000 Americans die every year due to medical mistakes. That is composed by 119,000 deaths that were due to errors committed in hospitals, and 106,000 deaths a year by FDA-approved drugs.

Those studies are nigh two decades old, and they are still staggering. Newer numbers elucidate to something vastly worse.

That goes without saying, with flu season among us, and Ebola displaying ‘flu like symptoms’, it surely is quite convenient for vaccines pushers that Ebola’s symptom’s mirror those of the flu.

It really wouldn’t surprise me if we began hearing Ebola fears being fanned again rather soon.

With that in mind, Johnson & Johnson not long ago announced it plans to have 250,000 experimental Ebola vaccines ready to go soon. In conjunction with that, they will push to have 1,000,000 vaccines prepared by next year

This entire ordeal seemed like the dream scenario for vaccine pushers. There was:

a] an alleged virus that can prompt extreme fear based on myriad symptoms;
b] which allows for a greater number of [false] possible victims to be established/quarantined;
c] conveniently taking place at the nascent stages of yet another hyped up virus, which mirrors the very symptoms Ebola is claimed to have;
d] being managed in a way that if it such pandemic had really taken place, the government seemed to be doing everything possible not to stop, but to allow this to spread by bringing more and more people within the country;
e] thus allowing Big Pharma/Big Medica to reap untold profits the longer this continues.

That is exactly the point. By this playing out over the long term this allows for calculated [incremental, perhaps, given Ebola’s nigh non-existent spread rate] control and perhaps medical martial law of the populace, whilst simultaneously allowing those who own the patents for the vaccines to make untold millions.

Sure seemed like something out of a script, didn’t it?

It goes to show the lack of insight, foresight and common sense bandied about by the brass at the Centers For Disease Control Creation.

In fact, we can expect even a larger propaganda campaign to be launched next time this happens. Bank on it. That is their modus operandi.

Don’t forget the fact that with flu season among us, the amount of false-positives if this happens will also be high because of the flu, and also given the inaccuracies of the PCR test.

Dream scenario for the vaccine pushers?

Yes indeed. Only if we allow it to be.
