Members of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads.com have been alerted to the fact that since 9/11 America has invaded and/or bombed seven Muslim nations, resulting in the loss of millions, possibly tens of millions, of lives.

These nations (with relevant ‘conflict’ dates) include:

Yemen – 2002, 2009, 2011

Iraq – 2003-2015

Afghanistan – 2001-2015

Pakistan – 2007-2015

Somalia – 2007-8, 2011

Libya – 2011, 2015

Syria – 2014-2015, 2018-2019

One Undergrounder (group member) says, “I’m not sure what death toll from all that would be, probably millions or even tens of millions…but I don’t think many, if any, of these military assaults would be justifiable without the 2001 attack on U.S. soil.”

He suggests, “We need to go back to the inciting incident and figure out was that for real or a false flag attack or something in between?”

Given most Undergrounders are American, some of the comments in this particular discussion thread make for interesting reading. The thread is titled ‘ FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS > The U.S. Military Industrial Complex VERSUS the American People.’ (Click on the link above to view comments).

It follows a poll we ran, which asked, “Was 9/11 a false flag attack and ‘Inside Job’?” Exactly 50% of respondents answered Yes.

Our new release action-thriller novel THE DOGON INITIATIVE, book one in The Deniables Series, was released this week on Amazon.

 

The Dogon Initiative (The Deniables Book 1) by [Morcan, Lance, Morcan, James]

A group of foreign mercenaries hired as deniable assets by a newly-formed humanitarian division of the CIA is tasked with saving Mali’s persecuted Dogon people from genocide. The operation must be carried out in stealth while journeying across some of West Africa’s most hostile terrain. As if all that’s not enough, they are also ordered to help solve an ancient astronomical mystery linked to the pyramids of Egypt.

Mission impossible? Duh!

Nicknamed the Deniables because their existence isn’t officially acknowledged by the CIA, the mercenaries are crazy enough to accept the mission anyway. However, they soon find themselves fighting for their lives when they get caught in the middle of warring ethnic factions in Mali. Their only way to survive is to join with the Dogon in a race against the clock. The stakes are so high that not only could an entire indigenous group be wiped off the face of the Earth, but all evidence that supports advanced ancient technology theories surrounding the Dogon and a lost civilization thesis may be destroyed in the process.

Inspired by a true-life mystery of astronomy, The Dogon Initiative highlights some of the many myths and theories surrounding the fascinating Dogon people of Mali. In particular, their unexplained knowledge of the invisible-to-the-eye Sirius B white dwarf star, the rings of Saturn and other heavenly bodies, and their rumored ancestral relationship to ancient Egyptians.

The Dogon Initiative is the ninth novel by father-and-son writing team Lance and James Morcan. Their previous works of fiction include the bestselling historical epics White Spirit and Into the Americas, as well as their modern thrillers Silent Fear and The Orphan Trilogy.

The Dogon Initiative  is available via Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NKTD515/

Who would you like to see win the 2020 United States presidential election? That’s the question we put to members of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group in our latest poll on Goodreads… and the results may surprise!

 

Republican National Convention: Day Four

Trump ahead in Underground Knowledge group poll.

 

Candidates include a mix of confirmed, rumored and possible candidates. Poll participants have been invited to add their own favorite candidate if they don’t see their preferred individual on the list.

Listed candidates thus far include: Elizabeth Warren, John McAfee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Jesse Ventura, Marco Rubio, Jill Stein, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Alec Baldwin, Zoltan Istvan, Donald J. Trump, Jon Rappoport, Oprah Winfrey, Howard Schultz, Al Gore, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Michael Bloomberg, Joe Biden, Kanye West, Cory Booker, Chelsea Clinton, Mark Cuban, Michelle Obama, Ivanka Trump, Bill Weld, John Kerry, Alex E.

Interim poll results have President Trump ahead with 19.1% of the early vote; next is Bernie Sanders on 13.8% followed by Michelle Obama on 12.2% and Oprah Winfrey on 6.4%.

Seems not all Undergrounders (members of our Underground Knowledge group) approve of the poll. This comment just in from one upset punter who goes by the name Angel: “Why bring this shit to Goodreads and upset people? I voted here out of principle. But seriously, I don’t think this poll is necessary. Some people come here to escape this stuff.”

Our poll moderator James responded to Angel as follows: “I apologize profusely for hurting anyone’s feelings…”

What is a bigger threat to society: Inequality (whether caused by sexism, racism or other discrimination) or Political Correctness (e.g. censorship, language controls, anti-freedom of speech regulations etc. that aim to prevent inequalities)?

That’s the latest poll question we put to members of our Underground Knowledge discussion group in Goodreads.com.

 

PC

 

Interim poll results are as follows: 35% say Inequality; 29% say Political Correctness; 34% say both; 2% are unsure.

In introducing the poll, here’s what Underground Knowledge group co-founder James says:

Hey, hey, hey, don’t shoot the messenger here regarding the phrasing of the poll (Yes, I’m a mind reader!)

This is a really tricky poll to word and I perhaps didn’t quite find the best wording.

But hopefully y’all get the gist of the two sides of the equation here.

For the record, I voted both are equal threats as I fear both extremes. And I’m also very aware that some people try to make out every single concern expressed by minorities or the disadvantaged or outcast would always equate to PC in action — that can be a subtle tactic of fascists or racial agitators or gender/sexuality haters, where they always label any sensitivity concerns expressed as “political correctness” when half the time they are legitimate concerns.

However, I must admit lately I’m getting more and more concerned about not only the more extreme side of Politically Correct (PC) culture (especially censorship) and the all pervasive “Nanny State” it’s breeding — but also the growing “we know best” brigade who seem to judge any action of a public figure that’s even slightly unsavory/distasteful as being completely unforgivable…Some of that sort of lobbying for social justice gets really vicious especially on social media…And it’s weird how those claiming to be humanitarians end up becoming quite militant or even fascist in their attempts to “deliver justice”…

So somehow it seems to be about getting the balance right where we do stand up against legitimate hate speech and purposeful marginalizing of various underdogs of society, without preventing open debate and freedom of speech. Because I wonder if our society could eventually become so overly protective in its desire to create equality and inclusiveness that it births brand new minorities…or else new marginalized groups who don’t fit in or innocently use language, or try to start debates, not deemed acceptable…Or could these measures even create greater divisions than ever existed before?

And is all this what George Orwell was warning us about in his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four?

*************************************************

“The vast majority of curricula that are taught in medical schools in this country (USA) were put together by organizations that were founded by, or are funded by, pharmaceutical companies,” according to natural health expert T.C. Hale.

That provocative quote kicks off a chapter headed ‘Kickbacks for doctors’ in our book MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures.

In the same chapter we quote Cicero, who said, “In nothing do men more nearly approach the gods than in giving health to men.” Certainly, the medical profession, in its purest form, is a noble one. And doctors are clearly at the apex of the profession.

We have no wish to denigrate doctors, or to denigrate anyone who devotes their life to helping fellow man. However, it would be remiss of us not to bring your attention to some, shall we say, gaps in the system – gaps that allow doctors to abuse their position if they are so inclined.

And we stress that those who do (abuse their position) are very much in the minority. That said, the number of doctors who have brought their profession into disrepute, worldwide, is staggeringly high. Certainly far too many for so noble a profession, we would argue.

___________________________________________________________

“An apple a day, if well aimed, keeps the doctor away.” –P.G. Wodehouse

___________________________________________________________

In Medical Industrial Complex, we list proven and shocking examples of kickbacks to doctors.

One study found that doctors in the US receiving payments from pharma companies were twice as likely to prescribe their drugs.

We quote a detailed 61-page report compiled by the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), which starts out with the comment that “While rent-seeking behavior may not be surprising generally, that financial conflicts of interest could influence physicians’ advice might be less expected. For one, doctors are highly paid, with most falling in the top 5% of the income distribution within the US”.

The UCSD report continues, “When drug companies have financial relationships with physicians, medical decisions may be influenced by pecuniary motives not directly related to patient health…”

The report’s conclusion is that “Using data from twelve drug companies, more than 330,000 physicians and nearly one billion prescriptions, we find that when a drug company pays a doctor he is more likely to prescribe that company’s drug.”

A US Federal Government report, detailing 4.4 million payments made to doctors and teaching hospitals by pharmaceutical and medical device companies sheds more light on the vexing kickbacks issue…

We conclude the chapter by saying, ‘Hopefully, this insight into doctors’ kickbacks from the likes of Big Pharma and the medical equipment suppliers hasn’t destroyed your faith in your family doctor. We stress that those who succumb to the temptations on offer are in the minority and so, statistically speaking, we’d like to think there’s a very small chance your doctor is one of the culprits.’
