Treaty People Gathering: Rise, Protect, Stop Line 3

On June 5-8, people will gather in Northern Minnesota to stop construction of Line 3 and tell the world that the days of tar sands pipelines are over.

We will not stand by and watch a fossil fuel corporation line its pockets as so much is destroyed. Only a major, nonviolent uprising—including direct action—will propel this issue to the top of the nation’s consciousness and force Biden to act. 

“We rise together for treaties. We rise together for climate. We rise together for our water. We rise together for one another. As Enbridge builds Line 3 through Anishinaabe treaty land and the Mississippi Headwaters, we continue to stand strong in our resistance.

Please consider showing up for this crucial movement and supporting the Indigenous people who have been working to protect our water!

Open Letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack on Organic Standards

When you purchase food labeled USDA Organic, you expect it to be the gold standard for health and sustainability. 

Although USDA Organic remains the preeminent standard, the principles of true USDA Organic standards are unfortunately under attack. As the market for organic foods increases, large corporations are tempted to use their power and influence to weaken USDA Organic standards.

Some of today’s most critical issues threatening the integrity of USDA Organic are: 

• Hydroponic production

• Origin of Livestock and Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices final rules are badly needed

• Enforcement of the Pasture Rule is weak 

• Organic grain fraud continues

At the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) meeting in April, authentic organic farmer and former NOSB member Francis Thicke addressed these issues. 

He read a powerful and well-reasoned letter to USDA Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, signed by 40 other former NOSB members, explaining these critical concerns about safeguarding organic standards.

Standing together, real organic farmers, consumers, and advocates must work to uphold the highest level of USDA Organic standards.

Regenerating Hope

It seems every day we hear of how bleak our environmental future looks: droughts, floods, forest fires, extreme weather, melting ice caps and dwindling freshwater supply are among the major issues. Recently, however, we heard some hopeful news that we want to share.

Our friends at White Buffalo Land Trust have bought a 1,000-acre ranch near Santa Barbara, California, with plans to regenerate the land and create a research and education center focused on regenerative agriculture:

“So the center specifically will host workshops and courses and field days. We will be modeling different cropping systems and livestock management systems that are appropriate for the climate context and culture of this place, and we will be engaging with ongoing research, collaboration with institutions of higher education and research partners.”

White Buffalo Land Trust says it hopes to inspire and inform other projects and individuals by “demonstrating the power and potential of regenerative agriculture and the principles and practices of regenerative agriculture to actually restore ecosystems through the process of agriculture.

Well, we have to say it’s already inspiring us and regenerating our hope for a healthy future on this planet.

OCA Needs You

We are proud that OCA’s efforts to tell the truth and expose the lies of the Establishment are having a big impact. After over a year of debunking the “official” story on the origins of COVID-19, even the mass media and Congress are waking up. 

But we’re tired of being pushed around and threatened by Big Tech, Big Pharma, Big Food, and now Big Brother politicians, who understand little or nothing about the power of organic food, natural health, or even low-cost, non-patented generic drugs to prevent and treat disease and safeguard our health. 

OCA needs your support now, more than ever.

Cover-Up #4: The Reckless “Gain-of-Function” Experiments that Created COVID-19 Continue

Although the media are finally waking up to the real lab origins of COVID-19, there has been very little coverage of the fact that “Gain-of-Function” (GOF) research, even after the Wuhan lab leak, is continuing at numerous so-called “Biosafety” or “Biodefense” labs in the US, China, and across the world.

Among the ongoing funders of GOF experimentation are Dr. Fauci’s National Institutes of Health, the Big Pharma-affiliated EcoHealth Alliance, as well as a secretive and little-known network of U.S. military biowarfare/biodefense funders including DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and the Assistant Secretary of Preparedness and Response (ASPR) for the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. 

For a history of lab accidents and releases of potentially pandemic pathogens from the 1960s through February 2014, see this eye-opening article by Dr. Martin Furmanski: “Laboratory Escapes and “Self-fulfilling prophecy” Epidemics.” 

Although there is finally a unanimous bi-partisan call from the U.S. Senate to cut off all U.S. funds to Chinese labs for GOF experiments, there are still 200 labs in the US alone equipped for GOF engineering, with hundreds more across the world.

In a Jan. 22 Twitter post, biotech scientist and COVID-19 investigator Yuri Deigin warned that Italian GOF researchers have created a SARS-CoV-2 variant that bypasses acquired immunity and negates the immunity you normally would have after recovering from the infection. Deigin writes:

“Ok, the prize for the craziest and most dangerous gain-of-function research goes out to Italian virologists who took SARS-CoV-2 and passaged it in vitro in the presence of neutralizing antibodies. It quickly obliged and mutated to escape them. Yay for a novel, more dangerous SARS3!

Other reckless and ongoing GOF research includes scientists in the U.S. attempting to combine the SARS virus with super-deadly anthrax bacteria at the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Vaccine Research. The director of the Pittsburgh Center is W. Paul Duprex, a gain-of-function enthusiast who’s received significant funding from the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Other GOF Frankenviruses and pathogens currently being engineered include airborne Ebola, funded by Fauci’s NIAID at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Human Pork Vomit Virus, concocted at Ralph Baric’s lab at the University of North Carolina, as well as virus-infected insects, and resurrecting deadly viruses such as the Spanish Flu which killed 50 million people in 1917-18.  

We still don’t know what gain-of-function ghouls Dr. Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) are funding today—and these are probably the government agencies engaged in gain-of-function research that are the most transparent. 

In addition, very little is known about what goes on at the Pentagon labs in 30 countries operated under the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s Cooperative Biological Engagement Program. We do know that DTRA funds EcoHealth Alliance’s virus hunting. In the last 6 months, EcoHealth has received $10 million (34 percent) of the $29.1 million DTRA has invested in scientific research.

We’ll know even less about what happens at the new CIA Labs, but “bioscience and biotechnology” are listed under “What We Do.”

Cover-Up #3: Generic Drugs that Can Prevent or Treat COVID-19: Ivermectin

As pointed out by Nate Doromal in the article above, there are safe, effective, proven alternatives (generic drugs and natural health supplements and remedies) for people seeking protection or treatment for COVID-19. 

Instead of being injected with experimental gene therapy (messenger RNA) drugs (Pfizer or Moderna) or rushed-to-market vaccines (Johnson & Johnson or AstraZeneca) with limited, deeply flawed pre-market safety testing and already apparent serious side effects (262,521 reports of adverse events following COVID vaccines, including 4,406 deaths and 21,537 serious injuries between Dec. 14, 2020 and May 21, 2021) as well as indications of long term health damage, there are inexpensive, non-patented generic drugs, with a long history of use, and no side effects. 

One of the most important drugs in this category is Ivermectin, available over-the-counter in a number of nations including Mexico, where it has been used effectively in Mexico City on more than 50,000 patients since December 29, 2020.  

As medical practitioners such as Dr. Beginino Agbayani point out regarding Ivermectin, there are “over 26, as of today, randomized control trials showing effectiveness, even as high as 89% for prevention, and as high as 80% for treatment.”

Despite widespread use worldwide and numerous clinical trials demonstrating its effectiveness, Ivermectin has been attacked by Big Pharma and vaccine manufacturers, with information on Ivermectin censored by the mass media (who of course get much of their revenue from Big Pharma ads in the US) and the internet giants. 

Only after sustained pressure from doctors, patient advocates, scientists, and health experts has the U.S. National Institutes of Health began to tone down its previous attacks on Ivermectin, admitting as of February 21, 2021 that “there are insufficient data for the COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel  to recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.”

Ivermectin was originally developed, patented and sold by pharmaceutical giant Merck as a treatment for parasites, with over 3 billion doses successfully used, with no side effects. But no doubt because its patent expired in 1996, allowing other companies to make Ivermectin very cheaply, Merck has attacked the use of Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19, meanwhile developing a new, patented, expensive drug for early treatment of COVID-19.

Cover-Up #2: Vaccine Mania

Vaccine mania is sweeping the nation. One cannot go a day without hearing about the COVID vaccine and the need for increased vaccination rates so “we can get back to normal.” 

However, since the COVID vaccine supply is now exceeding demand, it reveals that many people do not want the vaccine, and public health authorities are turning to more “coercive” incentives.

Media organizations are pressuring people to get the vaccine by name-calling, universities are requiring the COVID vaccine for those wanting to attend college, criminals are being offered reduced sentences for vaccinating, and businesses are using vaccine passports as an “incentive” to vaccinate despite the public backlash against them and the new inequalities it is creating. 

All of this occurs in the backdrop of censorship of public health criticism by Big Tech that is implicitly encouraged by lawmakers.

With this new normal, it can feel like we are living in a crazy-land. Even our top politicians have taken a strangely paternalistic obey-us-or-else tone. President Biden tweeted earlier in the week: “The rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do. The choice is yours.”

All of these efforts have one mission, to protect the public from COVID-19. However, an important question remains, “What about COVID vaccine injury?”

What Else Are They Covering Up?

Now that OCA and our allies (, Children’s Health Defense, GM Watch, US Right to Know, Alliance for Natural Health, DRASTIC, Unlimited Hangout, and others) have forced the mass media, the White House, and even a growing, bi-partisan group of Democrats and Republicans in the US Congress to begin to admit that SARS-CoV-2 likely leaked from a secretive, accident-prone lab in Wuhan, China, rather than being a natural occurrence, we need to look at what else is being covered-up about COVID-19. 

Even Big Pharma-indentured Facebook announced this week that they will no longer censor information on the lab origins of COVID-19, meanwhile continuing to censor alternative information about prevention, treatment, and vaccine safety issues.

Now that we have begun to expose the fact that the Chinese government, the Trump and Biden administrations, a cabal of US, Chinese, and international scientists carrying out reckless so-called “Gain-of-Function” experiments on viruses, aided and abetted by Big Pharma and Silicon Valley, have been trying to cover-up or downplay the importance of this catastrophic lab accident, we need to broaden our attention to include other, life-or-death cover-ups surrounding the pandemic.

For a full critique of the “official story” on the origins, nature, virulence, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19, and an exposé of Bill Gates and the global elite’s diabolical plan for a Great Reset, please purchase my new book, co-authored with Dr. Mercola, with a powerful Foreword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., The Truth About COVID-19.
