  2. Are we alone?? No, we aren't.

    They have been hiding this "out of this world" technology from us for many years.

    This will be one of the GREAT things RELEASED when the "Awakening" begins.

    -------------------------------------------------

    MEDBEDS AND FUTURE HEALING

    Imagine, if you dare, your free will and fantasy allowing you to envision the most mind-wrapping methods that your body could endure to heal the human body. These alien technologies were suppressed for decades via the Military-Industrial Complex and DC politics and alphabet government agencies; that’s correct, alien technologies!

    Envision a place where physics meets with reversed technology and engineering, where lightyears meet with human contemplation respecting the laws of people, animals, and the earth’s environment.

    Have we as a human race become VEXED by the Military-Industrial Complex and the DC Political Boogiemen, whereby our history as a civilization was coveted from unimaginable truths residing between fact and fiction like the Wizard of Oz behind the iron curtain, controlling and manipulating all aspects of our life here on earth, from our food, belief systems, health, environment and more.

    Secret Space Whistleblower Jared Rand, and Editor of “Stillness in the Storm,” is one of the latest alleged secret space insiders to step forward.

    In conversation, he talks about the highly advanced off-world technologies such as tachyon healing chambers, portal technology, resurrection beds, replicators, and rejuvenation pills; he is not the first nor the last person to discuss these covert patented technologies.

    These life-altering inventions are literally from "out of this world". They involve the ability not only to grow back missing limbs and cure diseases yet rejuvenate the atoms and cells in the body and reverse the aging process.

    This AI-Computer program would create healing within the body, renewing it systemically through a painless atomization process, unaffecting the (memory, wisdom, knowledge, qualities, etc.) where the patient lies in the med-bed and goes into a deep sleep. It is hard to wrap our heads around a concept, so Sci-Fi could recreate a missing body part or a complete rejuvenation of reversing decades and layers of age.
     

    Trained healthcare professionals would manage these devices as these miracle med-beds identify DNA while scanning the body for imperfections, then uses plasma and tachyon technology with a controllable AI computer to treat according to the person’s desire. In-depth health maintenance will provide a holistic approach along the lines of naturopathy, Ayurveda, homeopathy, and many others. The practices of these devices will not be used in allopathic hospitals but other appointed clinics. When the patents are released to the public, they will be protected against the greed and political establishment that have infiltrated every arena of our lifestyles. These devices will not replace healthcare, only be an adjunct to it as there are many other patents to be released that will compliment the likes of med beds.

    Some of the very first people to receive healing sessions will be those suffering the most painful and severe conditions, and eventually, through time, it is said that every household will have its own devices.

    Rand mentions several technologies that certain extraterrestrial people have covertly shared with selected groups on earth for decades.

    As part of a research team, Jared Rand claims to have tested and verified all the technologies’ effectiveness. He also claims there are two specific pills to rejuvenate anyone within 24 hours.

    There are massive patents and inventions to heal every ill known to man, yet most of us realize why these inventions have been withheld from seeing the light of day. The elite will never allow this as it will tap into the government and globalist greed.

    On issues of healing the environment, there is a stunning approach silently existing that cleans the waterway, oceans, soil, and plants, and more, which is a 600 million-year-old microbe; once this is properly fermented, it has the ability to clean up oil spills, and after the cleanup, it exhausts itself, leaving only nitrogen and oxygen behind.

    Public invited to ‘Walk in Penn’s Woods’ with Penn State DuBois Wildlife Students

     

    DuBOIS, PA – Penn State DuBois Wildlife Technology students will lead the 2021 “Walk in Penn’s Woods” beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 3, at the historic Camp Mountain Run Boy Scout camp, 4980 Mountain Run Rd., Penfield, PA, 15849. All members of the public are invited to join this educational hike.

     

    Participants will meet at the fishing pond and experience an introduction to Tree identification by students in the Penn State DuBois Wildlife Technology Program. Throughout the custom 2-mile, the group will be introduced to approximately 25 species of woody plants, including a combination of native and non-native trees, shrubs, and vines.  This non-traditional, education-focused hike can be characterized as moderate in rigor, as it will span a variety of terrain ranging from wet bottomland floodplains to gently rolling, moderately dry hillside slopes that require sturdy footwear and agility to navigate through laurel thickets and narrow game trails. The hike is not wheelchair or stroller accessible.

     

    This is one of the various sites across the state where Pennsylvanians of all ages will participate in Walk in Penn’s Woods by getting out and building appreciation for the forest, the people who own them, and the importance of caring well for them.

     

    Since 2017, the first Sunday in October has been designated as an opportunity for Pennsylvanians to join hosted walks to learn more about Penn’s Woods and gain easy access to expert forest and wildlife professionals. Some walks have children’s activities; others highlight managed wildlife habitat or watersheds; you may see the results of harvesting activities or plantings of native trees and shrubs; still others may demonstrate the effects of urban tree cover or riparian buffers. “Walk in Penn’s Woods” also features a growing number of sites with wheelchair and stroller accessible walks. For a complete list of individual walk locations, times, descriptions, ways and places to discover Penn’s Woods all year round, and more, go to www.walkinpennswoods.org. The website is regularly updated as new walks are added, so keep checking.

     

    The 2021 “Walk in Penn’s Woods” organizing partners include the Pennsylvania Forestry Association, The Center for Private Forests at Penn State, Penn State Forestry and Wildlife Extension, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Pennsylvania Forest Stewards, the Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, the Pennsylvania Chapter of the Association of Consulting Foresters, and the Pennsylvania Sustainable Forestry Initiative.

  4. HUNTER GUEST SPEAKER FOR HISTORICAL DINNER

                It was a night of returns at the DuBois Area Historical Society's 38th dinner.

                First, the dinner was held for the first time since 2019 because of the Covid pandemic. Eighty-two visitors and guests took advantage to attend the event held at Christ Lutheran Church.

                Second, DuBois' born and raised outdoors communicator Ken Hunter entertained and informed attendees, which included former teachers and classmates, with his presentation "Little Did I Know".

                "Little did I know what would happen in my life," said Hunter. "I grew up on Spring Avenue and graduated from DuBois High School in 1965. I wanted to do something in the outdoors."

                Looking back at his high school years, Hunter recalled art teacher Sam Richards giving him his first lessons in painting. Richards also took Hunter fly fishing for the first time. Hunter's family doctor, Colson Blakeslee, was the first to take him ice fishing. Needless to say, Hunter was hooked.

                The road to Hunter's ultimate success went a different direction. He graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania with a degree in comprehensive social studies. He taught school for 10 years before leaving to pursue his passion of outdoor communications. By that time, he was married to DuBois native Sheila Boyer and freely admits he had no idea how he was going to meet that goal.

                But, meet it he did. Hunter's first published pencil art work was a grouse for use in the late Jim Ross' outdoors column in The Courier-Express. Things blossomed from there. His art work would eventually appear on magazine and catalog covers including the pinnacle of these publications Sporting Classics magazine. "That cover was shown in a scene in the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire"," said Hunter.

                He also became involved in television. With no experience he was invited to co-host the prime-time ABC network program Pennsylvania Outdoors. "This was something for someone who didn't want to give an oral report in a high school English class," said Hunter.

                Success took Hunter to the White House where he presented the original drawing of a bison commissioned by the National Park Service in honor of its 75th anniversary to First Lady Barbara Bush.

                "God gave me the ability to do what I'm doing," summed up Hunter, who is still active in his profession.

                Finally, Hunter returned something special for his hometown. He donated a drawing "Final Farewell" depicting a hunter saying goodbye to a deceased military veteran to the Marine Corps League – 289 HCL Sgt. William L. Dixon Detachment of DuBois. The drawing will be raffled off to raise money for the annual Toys for Tots drive in DuBois. Attending and accepting for the local Marines were Dick Castonguay, Louie Gregori, Ray Hetrick, Bob Pernesky and Joe Woods.

                President Ruth Gregori led the brief business meeting to open the evening. The following were elected to two-year terms:  Tom Schott, second vice president; Gene Aravich, secretary; Allen Minns, treasurer; Dick Castonguay, director of genealogy; Caitlin Kalgren, director of museum and curator; Robin Powers, Huston Township representative; Denise Katchmarchi, Falls Creek representative; Emma Miller, Bloom/Brady Township representative; and Betty Lou Cook, Treasure Lake representative. The 2022 proposed budget was also approved.

    Returning on Saturday, October 9, after a one-year absence due to the pandemic, the DuBois Area Historical Society will host the Thirteenth Spirit of DuBois Lantern Walk. The first tour leaves from the Society's E. D. Reitz Museum, 30 W. Long Ave., DuBois, at 5 p.m. Additional walks will leave every 15 minutes starting. To make advance reservations for a specific walk time, telephone 814-371-4627 between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m., starting September 20. Tour groups will be limited to 20 people. Walk-ins are also welcome and will be assigned to the next available tour. The walk is a little less than a mile and will last a little over an hour.

    • Dr. Maria Gonzales, ER Doctor, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: “All this is bullshit. Now, [a patient] probably [has] myocarditis due to the [COVID] vaccine. But now, they [government] are not going to blame the vaccine.”

    • O’Malley: I’m not afraid of blowing the whistle “because my faith lies in God and not man…You know, like what kind of person would I be if I knew all of this -- this is evil at the highest level.

  9. 2021-09-19_1-12-19.jpg

    Dear Jimmy Kimmel,

    During your show on 8 September 2021, you commented on the shortage of ICU beds, saying “Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right on in, we’ll take care of you. Unvaccinated guy, who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy.” I take issue with your commentary for three primary reasons: 1) the comments appear to be racially discriminatory, 2) the comments are not founded in science and serve to further divide a country that, unfortunately, is taking medical advice from too many non-physicians, and 3) the suggestion that doctors should selectively treat patients is unethical.

    To be clear, I am vaccinated against COVID and am not “anti-vax.”  In addition to the COVID vaccine, I have been vaccinated against smallpox, anthrax, rabies, and a whole litany of diseases the military deemed worthy.  Instead, I value informed patient consent and ultimately patient choice.  Patients may make personal health decisions

    I do not agree about a great many health conditions, but it is my DUTY to lay out the risks and benefits of treatment options and, in the end, respect patient autonomy and decisions. So, let me address each of my original points individually:

    First, the category of “unvaccinated Americans” includes ALL racial/economic groups.  In my practice a large percent of the unvaccinated patients are non-white – on the surface, your statements could make you appear racist since you are targeting unvaccinated Americans and non-Whites disproportionately make us this group.  You may want to further understand the group of individuals you are suggesting should not be treated. Our country has already come so far in providing non-discriminatory medical care. Do you really want to encourage us to regress?

    Second, if we follow your logic to its reasonable end, as healthcare providers should we stop treating a multitude of other conditions that derive from personal choice and cost our country far more in terms of money, time, and hospital resources?  These categories are, at a minimum:

    Drug addicts

    Alcoholics/drunk drivers

    Smokers

    Criminals

    Diseases of Obesity (heart disease, strokes, diabetes, many cancers, orthopedic injuries, etc.)

    Your suggestion that we deny patients care based upon a vaccination status would indicate that you would endorse denying treatment to all of these people as well. Is this really how you think?  This would require hospitals to triage patients with a drug test, breathalyzer, weight scale, etc., and deny treatment accordingly.  Your own backyard in Hollywood is rife with those who would be denied health care if these were the new rules of healthcare.

    According to the CDC’s website, “The risk of severe COVID-19 illness increases sharply with elevated body mass index (BMI).”  So, if you’re suggesting we deny access to treatment based upon a personal choice of getting or not getting the vaccine, then, we must also deny treatment to those who are obese, which is caused in large part by personal choice. I would think that Hollywood’s efforts would be better suited to emphasize making personal choices that would increase the likelihood of survival through healthy eating, regular activity, and internal locus of control over wellbeing rather than support governmental edicts that close churches, gyms, and schools.  Eighteen months into the pandemic Americans should have been exercising more, eating better, taking supplements, and practicing faith to reduce the negative physiological consequences of COVID. Consider for a moment how many lives would have been saved from COVID and other diseases in America if there was a national personal health and accountability crusade?  How many hundreds of thousands of non-COVID deaths directly related to obesity could have been prevented and billions of dollars saved? How many children would not be put on diabetes medications this year?

    America was fought for and founded on the principle of respecting freedom of choice.  COVID is NOT going to wipe out the human race.  It can, however, destroy friendships, families, and our society with hate as is contained in Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue.  Don’t let it get the best of you and destroy the goodness that makes America the beacon of hope to others in the world.  What would the US have thought of you if you behaved this way and mocked Prince’s death for overdosing (preventable and his choice) and even had weekly TV events to mock the dead by name of the victims of AIDS during the AIDS epidemic?  Are average American’s lives worthless to you than celebrity lives?

    Third, US physicians refusing to treat unvaccinated patients have been given media attention.  It is, in my opinion, a violation of the Hippocratic Oath to refuse to treat those in need in order to make a political statement.

    I have had COVID despite being vaccinated. In 18 months of seeing COVID patients, not once did I shy away from doing battle with the virus.  I treated everyone because it was the right thing to do.  It was the American thing to do. And, ALL physicians take the Hippocratic Oath which means we MUST do our due diligence in reading and understanding the scientific research, not just the opinions of a small group of individuals.

    In my military career, I spent nearly 3 years in Iraq and Afghanistan.  In combat, I treated wounded Taliban and many other insurgents that had committed brutality that would have even made Charles Manson cringe.  I treated them with the same standard of care that I afforded our brave American and Allied wounded warriors.  I did it without reservation, without a second thought, because it was the right thing to do.  It was the American thing to do.  It was expected of me, and it is expected of ALL American health professionals working in US hospitals.

    Someday, the pandemic will end.  Extremist views and actions will make it difficult, if not impossible, to resume civil behavior between Americans who became adversaries during the crisis.  Imagine pushing women and children overboard to get the last seat on a Titanic lifeboat, and then trying to meet up with the survivors once back on dry land.

    True character often emerges during crisis.  The brave at heart show bravery.  Cowards run away.  The truly evil take pleasure in tormenting others during their time of duress.  I have made my share of public and private gaffes, especially in the ‘heat of the moment.’  Your monologue, however, was not a drunken rant or angry retort in an argument but instead was a well-planned, well-thought-out dialogue with very specific and hurtful terms you chose to use to thunderous applause from the audience.  It is the natural progression in America these days from public education to public pressure to where we are at cancel culture now.

    Jimmy Kimmel, to paraphrase the Bible:  You have been weighed.  You have been measured.  You have been found wanting.

    Look in the mirror and see if this is who you want to be when COVID is behind us.  Apologize to the American people.  Regain your humility and humanity that you have shown so many times before.  You sought empathy for your son’s medical issues in the past.  Now give that empathy back to fellow Americans.  Start to mend the bridge that used to connect us as Americans.

    Dr. Smith
