Farm Wars

Fear porn is running rampant. You’ve all heard the purveyors yelling “doom! doom!” at the top of their lungs every time another new and improved disease comes rolling down the pike. This year it is ebola. Last year it was the flu. Next year it will be something else.

But guess what? There are two very important things that you can do:

  1. Bolster your immune system.
  2. Turn down the volume on the fear porn.

Let’s face it. If you eat garbage, your immune system is garbage. If your immune system is garbage, you will get sick. Just how hard is that to understand? Health depends on the immune system. Sure, there are genetic predispositions towards certain diseases, but with a bolstered immune system, they can be warded off.

So, if you want a nation of sick, compliant people who are more than willing to pay through the nose for the “cure,” what do you do? Target the immune system. And that is exactly what is going on.

Our immune systems are targeted with each new GMO, each new pesticide, each new toxic food additive, each new water additive, each new vaccine, each new drug, each new…. and on and on. And believe it or not, we can include fear porn on that list.

Yes, fear porn plays a big part in weakening one’s immune system.


Fight or Flight

To produce the fight-or-flight response, the hypothalamus activates two systems: the sympathetic nervous system and the adrenal-cortical system. The sympathetic nervous system uses nerve pathways to initiate reactions in the body, and the adrenal-cortical system uses the bloodstream. The combined effects of these two systems are the fight-or-flight response.

When the hypothalamus tells the sympathetic nervous system to kick into gear, the overall effect is that the body speeds up, tenses up and becomes generally very alert. If there’s a burglar at the door, you’re going to have to take action — and fast. The sympathetic nervous system sends out impulses to glands and smooth muscles and tells the adrenal medulla to release epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) into the bloodstream. These “stress hormones” cause several changes in the body, including an increase in heart rate and blood pressure.

At the same time, the hypothalamus releases corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) into the pituitary gland, activating the adrenal-cortical system. The pituitary gland (a major endocrine gland) secretes the hormone ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone). ACTH moves through the bloodstream and ultimately arrives at the adrenal cortex, where it activates the release of approximately 30 different hormones that get the body prepared to deal with a threat.

The sudden flood of epinephrine, norepinephrine and dozens of other hormones causes changes in the body that include:

  • heart rate and blood pressure increase
  • pupils dilate to take in as much light as possible
  • veins in skin constrict to send more blood to major muscle groups (responsible for the “chill” sometimes associated with fear — less blood in the skin to keep it warm)
  • blood-glucose level increases
  • muscles tense up, energized by adrenaline and glucose (responsible for goose bumps — when tiny muscles attached to each hair on surface of skin tense up, the hairs are forced upright, pulling skin with them)
  • smooth muscle relaxes in order to allow more oxygen into the lungs
  • nonessential systems (like digestion and immune system) shut down to allow more energy for emergency functions
  • trouble focusing on small tasks (brain is directed to focus only on big picture in order to determine where threat is coming from)

­All of these physical responses are intended to help you survive a dangerous situation by preparing you to either run for your life or fight for your life (thus the term “fight or flight”). Fear — and the fight-or-flight response in particular — is an instinct that every animal possesses.


Here’s how it works: A new “threat” comes on the scene and the media launches into high gear, throwing us into instant “fight or flight” mode in which our immune systems are suppressed. If this is done over and over again, repeatedly, day after day, month after month, well, the immune system is suppressed over and over again, day after day, month after month, which leads to illness. It’s another con. Another way to profit off of our ignorance.

The media makes money because fear porn is addicting, and the docs and assorted pill pushers get rich when we get sick. Everyone makes money but the poor slob who is sucked dry. Yes, it really is that simple. And with all that money comes power, the ultimate aphrodisiac. And power is very addicting. Millionaire? Naw, not good enough… need more… and more… and more… It’s not the money anymore, it’s the high.

We are a nation of addicts and that addiction is driving us over the cliff. Time to end the addiction.

  1. Thanks, Sandy! I saw that article, and it is a really good one. Just like the human body, the immune system is essential, but instead of focusing on building up the good so that the immune system is capable of defending itself, modern farming and pharming methods concentrate on killing the bad, which does nothing to actually help the deficient plants.

  2. Sandy says:

    Barb,Just saw an article from Blacklisted News “The Amish Farmers Reinventing Organic Agriculture”
    It is about building up the immune system of the plants and doing away with the need for chemicals.
    Thought you might be interested.

    When you went to warn the school district did you have children in the school ?
    My 6th grader daughter who has done some research into the vaccine issue was trying to tell the repeater health teacher about the vaccine issues exposed by the whistleblower and the lawsuits going on in India. She got ridiculed and shut down. The repeater went on for 10 minutes a diatribe repeating key words like herd immunity, saving lives and those children are dead now.. For 10 minutes the health teacher went on about how chicken pox kills people and its her duty to get vaccinated so she doesn’t make other people sick, !”She screamed at my little girl that she was STUPID to believe such lies and that “your mother is evil not to let ÿou get vaccinated for EVERYTHING!” My question is ,”Why?” What irrational fear causes such idiotic behavior ? Fear Porn.. I forgot…

    Ebola: how to stage a fake epidemic
    by Jon Rappoport

    This is Jon’s web site. Worth a look. He can get a little windy, but not many if any does the quality indepth research journalism like he does.

    A friend on line and I have been having fun with this fear porn since the swine flu. Remember Barry’s horse left the barn speech?
    Meaning it would be stupid to close the border with Mexico. We all know he’ll never do that as long as he has the authority.
    I was just glad my Navy Dr. tipped me off about that in 1976 swine flu epidemic. Haven’t been vaccinated since boot camp and never had an illness a few hot toddies couldn’t fix.

    I’m with you. All these ‘pandemics’ have been fake, fake and more fake. I still cannot believe that so many people STILL fall for this nonsense. These Big Pharma money making, fear campaigns are obviously a big part of Big Pharma’s overall marketing scheme. What’s really disgusting is how the so-called Alt-Media keeps on spreading fear and paranoia about these fake pandemics as well as other very questionable fear porn.

    Gr8 article…push it a little further & you have a all the inherent negative manifestations of ‘hyper vigilance’ yet ultimately enervating & debilitating over time, by the continued release of stress hormones (cortisol etc) culminating in deleterious psychological/physiological ‘effects’ of P.T.S.D ….also the instinctual fear reflexes are a trivium…it’s ‘Freeze-Fight-Flight’…as the ‘Freeze’ response is most evident with people afflicted with post traumatic disorders (a crippling ‘withdrawal-response’ to full interaction with life in general….This is one way the NWO Hegelian Dialect juggernaut keeps us under their ‘Kontrol’….just observe the 24/7/365 MSM ‘Fear Porn’ that in it’s present state is far beyond the expectations of Ed Bernays & Joesph Goebbels totalitarian dreams…..sobering.

    Irene, a couple winters ago I went to see a couple principles at our local schools. I wanted them to read those series of articles I helped Dr. Swanson with about GMO’s and the skyrocketing health crisis especially with kids. Barb ran those over a series of days like the Seattle Examiner. After a couple weeks (more than enough time to read it) I went to pick it up. A sheriffs deputy was waiting for me to kick my a$$ out and NEVER COME BACK!! Servents of the public my butt!

    I just hope Christina can give that India story a happy ending. That crap they pulled in Chad was dispicable.

    BTW that flu vax mist for kids is GMO. Watch Monsatan and krew eyeballing on big pharma!! Bio-Better. GMO’s are already widely used in drugs, vaccines, and supplements. That BS safe food act of 2010 made codex alimintarious the law of the land. SEIG HEIL FRAU KLOBUCHAR!!

  11. Irene says:

    I went to the principal and PTA of the public grade school with the CDC whistleblower MMR vaccine information. It took almost 2 weeks for anyone to read the two page notice. The Principal who did admitt reading the transcript after two weeks delay mentioned it was only black boys involved and very few were actually hurt…. An other parent told me to shut up, nobody was interested since obviously their children were not involved..
    Your indian article shakes my world, I am profoundly interested and grateful that you sent the link..

    No it wasn’t, in spite of all the urban legends rolling aorund. It was discovered in 1975 by some Belgian scientists working with samples from the former Belgian Congo:


    People probably suspect the US gov’t because the Centers for Didease Control were involved in characterizing the virus and comparing it to the Marburg virus, but this was back in 1976.

    I deal with the fear porn everyday. It is the fear porn dealers who busybody around for the animal shelter, the public school, the walk for cancer pink ribbon parade, the grocery store, the school bus and the weed control board… It pours across the radio incessantly into my bowl of mush. It’s why the Bible says don’t worry , just be ready.
