War Over Nutrition, Healthy Fats Quietly Rages Behind the Scenes as Americans’ Health Continues to Decline

Information about what we should eat and drink to enhance our wellness is confusing. Seemingly every week we’re bombarded with a new directive as to what a healthy diet should or should not include. A new book finally puts the kibosh on faulty information we have long been told about the advantages of a low-fat diet. In fact, it turns out, our bodies need certain fats to maintain optimal health.

By Christopher J. Petherick

There’s a war going on inside this country. However, this one doesn’t involve militarized police kicking down doors and shooting innocent people or even the propaganda war that’s being waged to control your thoughts. This fight is over your health—more specifically, what you’re being told is good to eat in order to ensure optimal health.

It’s evident that regular Americans are losing this battle, because for too long they have followed the advice of the medical and dietary experts who have argued that eating fat-free foods is the only path to good health. Thankfully, though, new research is validating what many health advocates have been saying for years: Your body needs fat to function, and if you want to lose weight and live a long and healthy life, then eat more fat.

Sally Fallon Morell, the founder and president of the Weston A. Price Foundation and owner of PA Bowen farmstead in Brandywine, Md., has long said that human beings need to eat healthy fats to achieve peak health. Her new book, titled Nourishing Fats: Why We Need Animal Fats for Health and Happiness*, makes just this case, arguing cogently that fat-free margarines and certain vegetable oils are not just making people fat and unhealthy, they’re actually killing us.

Mrs Morrell also maintains her own “Nourishing Traditions” blog on health and nutrition.

The premise of the book is laid out right on the cover of the book: “Animal fats are not villains.”

Over the years, Americans have been inundated with bad advice on how to eat healthy that’s not just inconsistent, but schizophrenic. One day, it’s “Don’t eat any fats—they’re all bad for you.” The next day it’s, “Okay, you can eat some fats from fish and avocadoes.” Then, the next day, they tell us, “Well, eggs and meat aren’t that bad for you after all.”

Now, an editorial published in The British Journal of Sports Medicine by several leading cardiologists states: “It is time to shift the public health message in the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease away from measuring serum lipids [cholesterol] and reducing dietary saturated fat. Coronary artery disease is a chronic inflammatory disease, and it can be reduced effectively by walking 22 minutes a day and eating real food.” The real food they’re referring to consists of full-fat milk and other once-maligned foods that your parents and grandparents ate.

It’s no wonder the average person is totally confused by this. It’s also no wonder obesity rates are through the roof.

Mrs. Morell’s farm is only a few miles up the road from this editor’s house. She sat down with me recently to discuss her book as well as her tireless work to educate Americans on healthy living.

Her views are devastating to the medical and dietary establishment, arguing that animal fats are not just not bad for you—they actually are vital for the human body to function.

“Animal fats are essential for us,” Mrs. Morell told AFP. “One thing that the mainstream media and the establishment has never budged on is that saturated fats are the enemy. They’re bad. They’ll clog your arteries. And this is where we’ve gone wrong. Saturated fats are critical for our health, and, of course, we get saturated fats mostly from animal fats.”

Mrs. Morell told AFP, “What’s in the animal fats are nutrients we can’t get anywhere else—vitamins A, D, and K—that are absolutely critical for our health.” Her book contains nearly 30 pages of footnotes that cite scientific research studies and books proving that animal fats are healthy for the human body.

AFP is carrying Mrs. Morell’s book, Nourishing Fats, which also includes 35 pages of healthy recipes.

To put it simply, if you want to be healthy and live a long, happy life, give up the fad diets and the refined and processed foods and go back to eating real food. You’ll lose weight and feel better, and you’ll get to eat amazingly well, too.

Isis Is Us

Isis Is Us: The Shocking Truth Behind the Army of Terror

Did the “Islamic State” spring full-blown into spontaneous being as the fanatical scourge of the Middle East, or was it helped along by state sponsors?

There are uncanny parallels with Iran-Contra. In the 1980s, the Reagan team wanted to topple the government of Nicaragua, using mercenaries, or death squads, based in Honduras. But Congress passed a law against it. So they went around by financing the Contras via Iran.

Thirty years later, the hawks in Washington wanted to topple the elected governments of Libya and Syria, crush the popular resistance in Iraq, and split up those countries on ethnic lines. Once again, they wanted to do this using death squads. So they got around Congress by having Qatar and the Saudis finance it.

To set up the Sunni and Shiite death squads to fight each other in Iraq, they sent John Negroponte as ambassador to Baghdad in 2004. The same guy they sent to Honduras as ambassador from 1981 to 1985. Then in 2011 they sent some of those killers from Iraq to Libya to overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, with NATO air cover. From Libya, they were sent to Syria to start the killing there.

The U.S.embedded media perversely pinned these killings on Libyan leader Bashar al-Assad, following the script for another NATO invasion. Only Russia’s UN veto spared Syria. So the sheikhs kept financing the “rebels” – and the U.S. pretended to fight them – until they grew into the ISIS terror army. They and their backers have still not quit.

Even Fox News is saying the U.S. coalition against ISIS is a myth.

In a recent U.S. poll, just 18% think we have the upper hand in the “war on terror.” In a Syrian poll, 82% of respondents there said the U.S. and its allies created ISIS.

The wave of refugees, attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and early reception to this book, indicate that people want an end to the “war on terror,” and they want to know what’s really going on.

European efforts to subjugate the Middle East go back to the British, Napoleon, the Crusades, the Romans, and Alexander the Great. The British knew the best way to permanently hold a territory was to settle it. This is how they beat the French in North America. The Old World was already well-settled, though. So to capture the Near East prize, England joined forces with Herzl’s Zionists. In 1917, their Balfour Declaration announced the plan for Jewish settlement in Palestine.

Another way to hold vast domains is divide and sow chaos, to smash them up into quarreling fiefdoms. And the cheapest way to get people to fight each other is with religion. British, French, Israeli and American strategists have all written plans to rule the Muslim world by breaking up all the Arab states along sectarian lines. That goal is what “ethnic cleansing,” Al Qaida, ISIS death squads, “Islamic jihad” terrorism, the Bushes’ wars on Iraq and even 9/11 are really all about.

Ecology, Ideology and Power

Ecology, Ideology and Power

This book warns against the effort to sell a reactionary economic, political, and social agenda dressed up as concern for and protection of the environment. The author is in no way opposed to any genuine ecological concerns, but this work demonstrates that what we call “environmentalism” is primarily an expression of the world view of segments of the world’s upper class. When they talk to us about pollution, resource scarcity, and overpopulation, they are actually talking about their own fears and hatreds of the common people, and their ambitions for themselves. Whatever label we affix to today’s environmentalism, it is certain that it carries over into the 21st century the same kinds of reactionary, aristocratic, and elitist tendencies evident two centuries ago in England and Germany. Such tendencies also emerged in a significant way in the late 1800s in the United States, involving Malthusianism, social Darwinism, and the eugenics movement.

The New World Order in Action, Vol. 1

The New World Order in Action, Vol. 1: Globalization, the Brexit Revolution and the Left (Post Election)

This is the first of a three-volume major project which aims to cover all aspects of the New World Order (NWO) of neoliberal globalization, with its effort at full integration of every country in the world into this new order. The phasing out of economic and national sovereignty implied by this process has led to a global popular movement for sovereignty, i.e. self-determination and against globalization.

The rise of the NWO and the role of the Transnational Elite, that is, the network of the economic and political elites which administers it, are examined in the first volume. Furthermore, the mythology used by the elites as well as by the globalist “Left” is examined.

It was the full integration of the Left into the new order, which has led to its political bankruptcy and the rise of a neo-nationalist movement, embraced by most of the victims of globalization and particularly the working class that used to support the Left. The need for a struggle for national as well as social liberation has become imperative today.

In the following volumes it will be shown how the use of economic and military violence in the Middle East and Europe was successfully used for the full integration into the NWO of Iraq, Libya, Syria, as well as Ukraine and Greece.

The Controllers: Secret Rulers of the World

The Controllers: Secret Rulers of the World

Throughout history, there have always been powerful people who work secretly behind the scenes to advance their own objectives, often to the detriment of the public as a whole. President Woodrow Wilson said in 1913, “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the fields of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

Twenty years later, FDR said in a private letter, “A financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the United States since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

Andrew Jackson himself said, “I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.”

In the mid-1900s, President Dwight Eisenhower added this, “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”

And shortly before his assassination, President John F. Kennedy added this: “The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.”

The situation is no different today. A few thousand wealthy and influential people and societies who operate mostly behind the scenes, and keep their objectives secret from the public, largely control the world. This book identifies them, exposes some of their past activities, and sets forth ways of dealing with them.

A system of global control, referred to as the “New World Order,” by President George H.W. Bush in many of his speeches, is in effect today. Insiders are promoting a one-world government, a one-world economy and a one-world religion, with themselves in charge of everything.
A growing number of people are becoming aware of what is going on behind the scenes, and are becoming increasingly resistant to a global socialistic dictatorship. This book seeks to add to that awareness so that freedom can be maintained without violence.

The Bilderbergers: Puppet-Masters of Power?

The Bilderbergers: Puppet-Masters of Power? An Investigation into Claims of Conspiracy at the Heart of Politics, Business, and the Media

Since 1954, a discrete and select group of wealthy and powerful individuals have attended a private, yearly conference to discuss matters of their choosing. This group represents European and North American elites, as well as new talent and rising stars, from the worlds of politics, business, media, academia, the military and even royalty, and has included household names such as Margaret Thatcher, Henry Kissinger, and Prince Philip. In recent years, their numbers have featured David Cameron, Tony Blair, Angela Merkel, Bill Clinton, and David Rockefeller. They are “the Bilderbergers,” named for the hotel where their secret gatherings were first hosted.

Investigative writer Gerhard Wisnewski explores the numerous claims of conspiracy that swirl around the group, revealing names of participants, their agendas, and their goals. The scene opens in the sun-kissed seaside resort of Vouliagmeni, Greece, where Wisnewski tries to observe and report on a Bilderberg conference. He soon attracts aggressive, unwanted attention from police and undercover security, and it is made abundantly clear he is not welcome.

From this rude introduction, Wisnewski works backward to the founding of the Bilderbergers in 1954 by a shadowy Jesuit with secret service allegiances. Examining records and hidden reports, the author uncovers the true history of the organization, alliances among key individuals, and their common interests.

Hidden History

Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politics

The U.S. government has spent as much time covering up conspiracies as it has helping the American people. In Hidden History, you will see the amount of effort that our government has dedicated over the past 50 years to lying and covering up the truth to the world.

Starting with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, author Don Jeffries chronicles a wide variety of issues that have plagued our country’s history. Whether it is the assassinations of MLK and RFK, Iran-Contra, the Oklahoma City bombing, TWA Flight 800, voting fraud, or 9/11, every major disaster or war that we’ve witnessed has somehow been distorted by those who are supposed to be protecting us. Jeffries also delves into extensive research on the death of John F. Kennedy, Jr.—and what he finds will shock you.

Whether you’ve only heard bits and pieces of these stories or you’ve read several books on the topics, Hidden History is the book that belongs in every conspiracy theorist’s library, as the information included here has never been collected together in any other published work available. So sit down, strap in, and get ready to be shocked and awed by how much has been hidden by our government over the past 50 years. Updated for 2016, this version features a new introduction by political insider Roger Stone.

Bohemian Grove: Cult of Conspiracy

Bohemian Grove: Cult of Conspiracy

They secretly meet for 17 days each July in a remote “sacred grove” of ancient redwood trees in the deep forests surrounding San Francisco. Some 1,500 in number, their membership roll is kept secret, but includes the super-rich, blood dynasty member families of the Illuminati, heavy-hitting corporate chieftains, and high government officials. Mingling among them are a number of Hollywood movie stars, Broadway producers, famous entertainers, musicians, authors, painters, and poets. Great statesmen and – so we’re told – gentlemen.

The names you’ll recognize: Former U.S. Presidents William Howard Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr. and Jr. Most of the Bush administration’s top officials, such as Colin Powell, were also members of this exclusive men’s club. Former California Gov. Pete Wilson, mayors of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other major cities; astronauts Wally Schirra and Frank Borman; former FBI and CIA directors; former Secretaries of State George Schultz and Henry Kissinger; international bankers; heads of big oil companies (ARCO, Mobil, Pennzoil, Texaco), and corporate CEOs frolic in the redwoods with some of the most famous creative people in history: Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce, Bret Harte, Jack London, Will Rogers, Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, and Art Linkletter all “let their hair down” here.

Even Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth showed up in 1983. Her Majesty was honored with an ecstatic pagan dance ceremony, complete with expensive, elaborate stage props such as Egyptian pyramids and Babylonian ziggurats. Yet, even the Queen of England could not join this club if she applied for membership. Why? Because this club is exclusively male. Women have not ever been allowed since the club’s founding in 1873.

So what is this ultra-elite club with the bizarre Druid customs? They are the Bohemians, formally known as the Bohemian Club. They practically own their own county north of San Francisco, a 2,700-acre summer camp they call the Bohemian Grove. Since the 1890s, the “Grovers” (as they are known to intimates) have gathered amongst these redwood trees to “get away from it all,” have a little summer vacation fun, and avoid business dealings altogether for two weeks. At least, that’s the official story.

Then, there are the other stories … some of them too strange to believe. Tales of world leaders plotting the world’s destiny there in secret “war rooms,” hand-picking presidents and future leaders from the Bohemian Grove. Reports of occult rituals being conducted by these same powerful men, clad only in hooded red, black, and white robes, offering an effigy of a human being to be sacrificed by fire to a towering 45-foot stone owl god, the “Great Owl of Bohemia,” in a ceremony called “The Cremation of Care.” Sometimes, they discard the robes, don women’s clothing and parade around onstage in theatrical productions or—if the spirit so moves them—they wear no clothes at all!

Things get even stranger still. Stories have come out of the Grove about wild homosexual orgies, male and female prostitutes being engaged in what can only be described as extreme sexual games, young children being exploited in unspeakable ways, up to and including cold-blooded ritual murder. There are stories involving actual human sacrifice on the “altar” of the owl god statue. Understandably, it’s all very hard to believe.

But is any of it true? Does the Bohemian Grove emulate the ancient mystery cults of Babylon, Rome, and Greece? Do its members celebrate the old gods such as Molech, Ishtar, Lilith, Attis, Mithra, Apollo, Zoroaster, and others? Or is it a western secret society like the freemasons and Yale’s exclusive Skull and Bones? Are they just having “good clean fun” at the Grove? Or are they covertly plotting to take over the world? Why do our world leaders meet here to share a fascination with the arts and all things Bohemian? Why the obsession with the occult and ancient Babylon? This book proposes to answer many of the most frequently asked questions about Bohemian Grove, investigate the rumors, fully document what is known to be true, and hopefully destroy a few misconceptions.

Closed to the public and sealed off by helicopters, a private security force, and armed guards, there can be no doubt that without the prying eyes of the public upon them, the power elite may engage in whatever activities they wish at the Grove. Whether it’s crafting policy matters in secret, dancing around in drag, cheating on their wives with prostitutes, taking drugs, practicing black magic, or even committing murder, the pristine isolation of the Bohemian Grove provides a convenient cover for any immoral, illegal, or “un-gentlemanly” behavior one desires.

For most of the club’s long history, the public could only speculate as to what these men were doing in there. Books and news articles about the Bohemian Grove have been scarce; we could only rely on a little “leaked” information from insiders and the tireless work of a few dedicated researchers and activists.

Now the truth can finally be revealed. Mike Hanson is a firsthand eyewitness who has been inside the Bohemian Grove. In the summer of 2000, Mike secretly “infiltrated” the Grove. He filmed several hours of footage, including the entire “Cremation of Care” ritual, which will be published in full here for the first time. He peers behind the deep, green foliage and twisted vines and the moss-covered brown limbs and trunks of ancient, gnarled trees to discover what really goes on at the Bohemian Grove.

Bohemian Grove: Cult of Conspiracy, available from American Free Press, promises to uncover the Grove’s hidden history and expose the secrets of the redwoods.

JFK-9/11: 50 Years of the Deep State

JFK-9/11: 50 Years of the Deep State

From the Cold War to the “War on Terror,” JFK-9/11 exposes the hidden powers at work in the Empire’s foreign policy. It highlights the role of undercover and paramilitary operations, psychological warfare and disinformation, and false-flag terror. Relying strictly on documented evidence and state-of-the-art research on the JFK assassination and 9/11, the book cuts through the layers of government and mainstream media lies. JFK-9/11 assembles the most significant and well-documented “deep events” of the last 50 years into a coherent narrative of the “deep history” of the United States and its sphere of influence. The result is both a concise introduction for newcomers and an insightful perspective for informed readers.

The book is divided in two parts: The first deals with the underlying forces of the Cold War, the second with the driving forces of the War on Terror. The period investigated begins just before November 22, 1963 and peaks on September 11, 2001, the two deep events that weigh most heavily on the unfolding of American and world history.

The author highlights their structural similarities, examines how one made the other possible 38 years later, and follows the underlying thread leading from the one to the other, in the hope of anticipating and circumventing future atrocities.
