Includes what David calls ‘the most important chapter I have ever written’.

Deeper in the rabbit hole than ever before, solution-based and right up with current events.


Richie Allen Review of Phantom Self


‘I’ve just finished David’s new book “Phantom Self (And how to find the real one)” and it’ll prove a bigger and braver book than anything else in 2016. It’s almost surgical how David knits together historic and recent events to throw a glaring spotlight on who and what is manipulating our daily lives. I’ve never read a book before that so clearly and effortlessly illustrates how what we think is our world, what we see as our lives, is nothing more than a virtual reality-type programme, which has enslaved us.

The chapter entitled “Transphantomism” is at once a revelation and a siren call to the masses to get up, stand up and reclaim your own sovereignty from those pushing the trans-humanist agenda. It’s an outstanding book which compliments David’s unparalleled body of work. It’s also full to the brim with positivity and solutions and as I said, bang up to date with current geopolitical events.’

‘In a world where governments are blowing up children with drones and calling them collateral damage in phony terror wars on a daily basis, social engineering has turned average people into walking arguments that the film Idiocracy was actually a documentary, busily wasting their time fretting over how offensive otherwise innocuous words are.

Human beings are mammals. A female mammal who has children has traditionally been called a “mother” or “mom,” to separate this mammal linguistically from the male version, who has traditionally been called a “dad” or “father”.

Well, not anymore in one Florida college classroom where a professor has decided that language is offensive because it isn’t “inclusive” enough.’

‘Many of us saw it coming a long time ago — increasing confrontation between liberty proponents and the corrupt federal establishment leading to increasing calls by political elites and bureaucrats to apply to American citizens the terrorism countermeasures designed for foreign combatants. It was only a matter of time and timing.

My stance has always been that the elites would wait until there was ample social and political distraction; a fog of fear allowing them to move more aggressively against anti-globalists. We are not quite there yet, but the ground is clearly being prepared.’

‘Almost 18 months after Israel’s summer 2014 war in Gaza, reconstruction or repair of the homes of 74 percent of Palestinian families who were displaced has not even begun, according to a report by the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, or OCHA.

“The impact of the 2014 Gaza-Israel hostilities continues into 2016,” notes OCHA’s latest humanitarian bulletin on the occupied Palestinian territories.

Just 15 percent of Gazan families that were displaced in the war have been able to return to their repaired or reconstructed homes.

More than 16,000 families, amounting to approximately 90,000 people, remain displaced or homeless.’

‘If you were asked to make a list of the most evil corporations in existence, which names would first come to mind?

Monsanto? Philip Morris? Union Carbide? Those are all great examples, but if you neglected to include Nestle, the list would remain incomplete.

Nestle has a long history of dirty dealings and putting profits before people’s health. Their sordid past and current misdeeds make them one of the top contenders for the scummiest corporation prize.

Right now, the company is faced with a Rs 640 crore ($94.6 million) class action lawsuit filed by the Indian government for Nestle’s “unfair trade practices, false labelling and misleading advertisements,” as reported by Reuters and cited by Legally India.’

Untitled‘French comedian Kevin Razy landed in hot water after he appeared in a government-sponsored video against conspiracy theories that have mushroomed on the web since the Paris attacks. Another video quickly resurfaced, showing Razy chatting with those who believed in an official cover-up.

In the Education Ministry’s campaign video, titled “You’re being manipulated” and posted online on the French government website, Razy makes fun of a wide-eyed youngster, who is reading an article “explaining that the secret service organized the Paris attacks.” After it turns out that the article is published on a conspiracy website, Razy tells the teen: “You should always verify your sources.”

But it turns out Razy may have actually failed to properly verify his own sources just recently.’

‘Congress’s failure to update the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976 has prompted numerous states to enact their own restrictions pertaining to the chemical industry. The move has forced the American Chemistry Council (ACC), a top trade organization representing North American chemical manufactures, to fight chemical regulation legislation at the state level.

The ACC argues that chemical regulation is best dealt with at the federal level through TSCA rather than a “patchwork of state regulations,” but public awareness regarding the dangers of chemical exposure has forced state legislatures to take action.

In response, the ACC has redirected their focus to state-level activity by increasing its financial contributions to state and local candidates, according to a new report [PDF] from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).’

‘America the police state has become a labyrinth of rules, regulations and mandates, the amount of which is impossible to know, let alone comply with. But you know, that ol’ “ignorance of the law is no excuse” excuse wielded by faceless, un-elected bureaucrats wins out every time against the hapless, helpless citizen. In fact, some Americans cynically believe that rules are nearly impossible to comply with, and that they are written that way on purpose so as to justify the size, scope and power of the state.

That’s what seems to be the case in Ohio, whose Republican governor, John Kasich, wants to be the next president of the United States. His state’s department of education is so stringently absurd, that for lack of a piece of paper, it seeks to jail parents who dare to homeschool their kids.’

‘A study led by researchers at the University of British Columbia and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Public Health has found that hallucinogens such as LSD and psilocybin may have therapeutic potential in reducing domestic violence, or in the preferred terminology of the study, “intimate partner violence.”

Domestic violence is a serious social problem, with 20 people being beaten or otherwise assaulted every minute, adding up to more than 10 million incidents every year, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The coalition reports that one in three women and one in four men have suffered domestic violence over the course of their lives.’

‘Condemning the Trans-Pacific Partnership as a “death sentence,” two cancer patients last week staged a civil disobedience at the headquarters of the Big Pharma trade group that lobbied to include medical monopolies in the mega-deal.

“The TPP will effectively take some patients backwards in time to the dark ages of cancer treatment,” said Zahara Heckscher, a 51-year-old mother and author living with advanced breast cancer who staged the direct action. “It will prevent too many people with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses from accessing the new treatments they need to stay alive.”’
