Infiltration Rather Than Invasion
The reason for introducing and continuing the highlighted thread in the last two issues (WTF is the WEF Doing and Out of the Shadows) is because it has become evident many freedoms we have taken for granted are being eroded. We are not doom-and-gloomers though! We believe in the power and goodness of humanity; that we just need to take a stand together, not consent to this takeover, and take appropriate actions to and advance the cause of freedom far beyond just restoring what we have ever enjoyed. One step in this process is awakening to the full scope of what is going on, so we can make well-informed decisions on how we can contribute to this cause of freedom, truth and justice for all.
Before we continue with this thread, let’s journey back in time a bit. Undoubtedly some of our members are well aware of a good portion of this information; we want to ensure those who have had other priorities and paths get caught up in order to place current events in a fuller context.
In the farewell address to the American people by President Dwight D. Eisenhower (from 1953-1961), the five-star General who planned and supervised the D-Day Invasion of Normandy stated that “Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peace time, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea” and issued a stern warning that “… 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.” The full text of this speech can be found here.
The next President, John F. Kennedy, broadened the scope of this warning:
“…we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed…”
The full text of this speech can be found here; the full audio can be found here.
The term “deep state” appears to have been first coined by Dr. Peter Dale Scott of UC Berkeley, who has been writing about it for 50 years. Recently the mainstream media has gone to great lengths to debunk this concept. However, just last year, the Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center agreed with Kennedy’s statement by admitting there truly was a “deep state” by posting a statement on both LinkedIn and Twitter. This document describes a “Global threat” of “state and non-state actors… targeting the United States”, infiltrating “every sector of the US economy”, a “diverse and dynamic threat” utilizing “legal and quasi-legal methods, including mergers, acquisitions, investments, joint ventures, partnerships, and talent recruitments programs to acquire US technology and innovation.”
“This new form of conflict is not fought on a foreign battlefield, but on our power grids, our computer networks, our LABORATORIES AND RESEARCH FACILITIES, our financial institutions, our healthcare providers, and our federal, state and local tribal governments. This battle will not be won by weapons and warriors, but by public and private sector partnerships and through American dedication and diligence.”
Though Kennedy was a Democrat and regarded as a hero by most people who consider themselves to be liberal, if he were to give that same speech now he would be branded by the new left as a right-wing conspiracy nut. Most likely if he gave that speech today he would include the education system, the medical industry and the mainstream media as part of that “machine” which is at war with the American people via an “infiltration instead of invasion.”
In the mid-70s the Church Committee hearings and reports by the New York Times and Rolling Stone exposed the CIA’s infiltration of the media, as detailed in an article by the CATO institute. “In some cases, the ‘journalists’ were actually full‐time CIA employees masquerading as members of the Fourth Estate…”, “…some 400 bona fide American journalists had secretly carried out assignments for the ClA during the previous 25 years…” and “the most valuable of the close associations were ‘with the New York Times, CBS and Time Inc. [the publisher of both Time and Newsweek].’ In fact, the New York Times alone ‘provided cover for about ten CIA operatives’ over a nearly two‐decade period.” This video demonstrates why this CIA operation has been dubbed “Operation Mockingbird”.

As Above, So Below – Summer Solstice
“At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness.” ~Gary Zukav
The shadow side of Pluto in Aquarius (those degrees through which it has just traversed) is, at this time, characterized as control by technology, AI…hyperrational, hyperintellectual. As Pluto retrogrades back into the final degrees of Capricorn, we have the opportunity to take a different path.
On the day of the Solstice (6/21) the Moon will be in Leo, creating with Venus and Mars what is known as a stellium (when 3 or more planets cluster in a single sign). This is Heart (Venus and Leo) energy. And staying anchored in the heart is what it means to be human. This stellium squares Jupiter in Taurus and literally mean The Expanded Consciousness (Jupiter) of Love.
The Solstice occurs when the Sun is at 0 degrees of Cancer. And as Cancer is a cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn are the cardinals), and the cardinal signs represent the World Axis, this is an indicator of something coming into public light or world prominence. Further, this Solstice precedes many of the planets currently on the cusps and are about to change signs thus ushering in new massive energy.
Another contributor to the energy changes is, according to geobiologist Rory Duff, the continually increasing harmony of the planet’s energy lines which is now at 34 days (17 days before, 17 days after) for each equinox and solstice and will boost another 20% following this solstice. It is suggested that by 2024, there will be year-round harmony of the energy lines across the Earth for 200 years.
Should you choose to meditate or participate in some solstice-related activity, this is best done the day before the solstice as this is when the energies are most in harmony. We create from the invisible particularly when we collectively come together. Also, we activate ourselves and further amplify the Earth’s energy upgrade as well.
These are extraordinary changes and opportunities and we chose to be here at this moment.

Summer Solstice Sound Bath
I am more familiar with the riotous Solstice celebration of the annual Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Parade—tribal drums, wild colors; a resemblance to New Orleans Mardi Gras or Brazilian Carnival.
However, this creation, Summer Solstice Sound Bath & Astrology Meditation for Deep Soul Nourishment, is not raucous. I enjoyed the native flute, human harmony, crystal bowls, gong, and the meditation. I was also struck by the connections to astrological aspects.
Note the dog in front of the woman. Whenever I meditate, one of my cats will come from wherever he is in the house and sit in my lap usually placing one paw on crystals. So I was intrigued to see the dog participating in a similar manner.
Salt of the Earth
Synchronicity in action. Last week’s newsletter shared information about Salt, the issues of microplastics in much of this necessary mineral, as well as good sources for purchasing salt including one in the states. In a previous issue our article on Community 1.5 we featured the story of Jill and her husband Christian who were revitalizing a soda fountain in an effort to create more community.
Now, here is Jill in her most recent article on…Salt. She has visited the salt mine in Utah where Redmond’s Salt in extracted. And, she has her own take on this ingredient.
The Most Underrated Ingredient in Your Kitchen
Good, ol salt.
It’s often ignored in the wake of more exciting homestead ingredients like bone broth, raw milk, or maple syrup.
But make no mistake– it’s just as important, maybe even more so.
Whether we’re curing meat, fermenting veggies, or brining cheese, homestead-style cooking demands that you have a solid (and affordable!) source of good salt.
And not all salt is created equal.
I recently featured a giant 25-lb bag of salt on an Instagram Reel and it generated a bunch of questions.
(Because yes, I’m a weirdo and buy my salt 25-pounds at a time. Scroll to the bottom of this email if you want a link to bulk-buy your own salt for a discount. 😉)
Several years ago, I had the privilege of interviewing an expert from Redmond Salt on my podcast, so I wanted to pull my favorite nuggets from my notes and share them again today.
Is Salt Bad for Us?
Salt is essential for life. Without salt, everything dies, as our bodies need it in order to function.
Before refrigeration, food was frequently preserved with salt and we didn’t have the health problems that are associated with salt today.
So why do doctors constantly suggest you eat less salt for your health?
Salt has received a bad rap in recent times for two reasons:
First, salt is one of the main ingredients added to processed foods to make them more palatable (sugar and fat are the others).
Someone consuming a diet primarily made up of processed foods (think lots of cheap meats (hot dogs, lunch meat, etc), fast food, chicken nuggets, TV dinners, canned soups, and packaged meals) will be consuming far more sodium than they would in a simple, whole-foods diet where a sprinkle of salt is added during the cooking process.
Second, salt has become more processed over the years. If you look at the back of a salt container at a grocery store, you will see that it contains an ingredient list. It’s not just salt.
Much of our modern salt are processed, demineralized, and amended with various additives and chemicals. Because this salt is so processed, it acts differently in our bodies.
What’s the Deal with Sea Salt?
In the 1970’s, people started to realize that additives were being added to salt. They correctly assumed that sea salt would be better since it wasn’t processed.
Unfortunately, fast forward to today, and ‘sea salt’ has become a mostly meaningless term. Nearly all salt can be labeled as ‘sea salt’ even if it’s processed or has additives.
Iodine or No Iodine?
When it comes to natural salt, there’s always a lot of concern about iodine deficiency.
In our modern times, people connect iodine and salt together. However, historically, salt and iodine were never connected. (This blew my mind!)
During World War I, the military was trying to draft men from the Midwest, but there were goiter issues (iodine deficiencies) in that region of America. This was due to the midwest not eating a lot of seafood and natural foods that are rich in iodine and also because the soils in the Midwest were depleted of these natural minerals.
Therefore, instead of encouraging the public to eat natural foods rich in iodine, the military decided that they would add iodine to salt.
It would be a surefire way to increase the population’s salt intake, since everyone had to eat salt, right?
Adding iodine to salt worked for fixing goiter problems, however, encouraging eating more iodine-rich natural foods would have been better for our health.
Real natural salt still contains slight amounts of iodine naturally, but not enough that your body needs. If you start using natural salt, consider also adding more natural iodine-rich foods to your diet.
What’s the deal with all the different salt sizes? Salt is a crystal that can be crushed into four different sizes:
- Coarse or grinder salt: This is the size of a peppercorn. You can grind this salt like you would grind pepper. I use coarse salt for curing meats, making pickles, or sprinkling on homemade pretzels.
- Kosher-size salt: Kosher salt generally denotes a certain size of salt (coarse) that is proper size for pulling moisture (blood) out of meat in a way that makes it appropriate for kosher use. It can also mean that the manufacturing facility is approved by the Jewish community and therefore appropriate for use in that style of cooking. I use kosher salt for canning and I like to keep a box under my sink for scouring gunk off of my cast iron pans.
- Granular or fine salt: This is “shaker salt” since it’s small enough to come out of the holes in a typical salt shake. It’s the best size for everyday use and what I use 99% of the time in my cooking.
- Powder salt: This salt is similar in size to confectioner’s sugar. Fine powdered salt will taste very salty and can be sprinkled very lightly on foods. It sticks to food better, so it’s perfect for popcorn, roasted nuts, etc. (A little goes a long way!)
Beyond the sizes, there are also a dizzying array of different types: grey, pink, Himalayan, Bolivian, Hawaiian, and more.
But I keep just one variety in my kitchen: Redmond. It’s all I’ve used for the last 5+ years because:
- It doesn’t contain artificial additives or unhealthy pollutants.
- It’s not stripped of beneficial trace minerals.
- It’s unrefined sea salt mined from an ancient seabed in Utah.
- It’s full of trace minerals that give it one-of-a-kind nutritional benefits and a subtly sweet flavor.
I use it for ALL my cheesemaking, canning, fermenting, curing, and cooking.
And of course, I get it in 25-lb bags because:
a) I love buying in bulk, and…
b) it’s even more affordable that way.

PMAs, a Gateway “Drug” to the Discovery of Freedom
12 years ago, I (Jason) first learned about the concept of the Private Membership Association and how to use it to move your livelihood OUTSIDE the confines of the Matrix.
My wife chanced upon a small booklet written by a nearby doctor summarizing how it all worked. He’d been successfully practicing under a PMA’s protection for DECADES.
My wife had just given up her midwifery license because she refused to follow its directives and the harm that such behavior would cause to the women she served.
She wasn’t about to quit midwifery, but she did end her relationship with the State and its control over her work via the license.
At first, we weren’t sure how she could continue her work without becoming a “criminal.” So the Universe connected us with the world of Private Membership Associations and opened up an entirely new level of understanding.
Even so, we were clueless. We were brand new to the world of the PMA and we didn’t know what we didn’t know.
- Back then, we didn’t realize that pieces of paper couldn’t give you power you didn’t already have inside of you.
- Back then, we didn’t understand that our brainwashing and conditioning had oriented us towards asking for permission in all areas of our life.
- Back then, we didn’t fully grasp the extent to which the expression of our life force was being contained by forces we didn’t even know were present in our mind and body.
And then, as we began learning more about Private Membership Associations and how we could use them, an entire world of possibility opened up to us.
We began to see what had been invisible. We began to act in ways we didn’t know were possible. Most importantly, we began to live in a manner where the obstacles between our intentions and the outward expression of those intentions were slowly dissolving.
You could say that our PMA journey was the “gateway drug” to our discovery of freedom…freedom that is available for anyone who will dare to claim it.
And from that point forward, everything changed…
You did not come to this plane to ask permission to BE or permission to LIVE or permission to enrich the lives of others with your gifts and talents.
You came to shine your light in a way that no one before you has ever done in quite the same manner. And that requires NO permission from anyone.
Our team at FreedomWorks stands waiting to help guide you through a journey that will forever change your perspective on the world and what you believe is possible for you to achieve.
If you are ready to begin that journey and move your work outside of the Matrix system, we look forward to helping you do that.
