"A man may take to drink as he feels himself a failure,

and then fail all the more completely because he drinks."

George Orwell

"From the time kids are old enough to turn on the television, public airwaves encourage teens watching television to drink alcohol." - Gary Cifra

"When c✡rp✡rate media forces job candidates to submit to drug tests, it is a conspirator in a culture war that should have ended with the Vietnam War.

Drug tests are essentially lifestyle tests.

Despite a short lived high, cannabis is the ONLY substance that stays in the human body long enough to make urinalysis a deterrent.

Petrochemicals are water soluble and exit the body quickly.

If you think drug users do not know this, think again.

Anyone capable of running a search on the Internet can find out how to thwart a drug test.

The most commonly abused drug, and the one most closely associated with violence, is almost impossible to detect with urinalysis.

Alcohol takes far more lives each year than all illegal drugs combined.

Hangovers do not contribute to workplace safety, and counterproductive drug tests do absolutely nothing to discourage the #1 drug problem - alcohol." - Robert Sharpe

1784 Inquiry into the Effects of Ardent Spirits on the Human Mind and Body catalogues the consequence of chronic drunkenness.

Benjamin Rush argues this condition is a disease physicians should treat.

This marks the beginning of the American Temperance Movement.

Benjamin Rush describes one of the earliest pharmacological treatments for chronic drunkenness - the use of an emetic to create a conditioned aversion to alcohol.

1826 Lyman Beecher publishes six sermons on intemperance.

"No sin has fewer apologies than intemperance." - Lyman Beecher

Lyman Beecher, father of 13 children, wore out Roxana, Harriet and Lydia.

1857 Home for the Fallen is opened in Boston – marking the foundation of the 19th century inebriate home.

1864 New York State Inebriate Asylum begins admitting patients.

1879 Keeley Institute, known for its Keeley Cure or Gold Cure, is a commercial medical operation that offered treatment to alcoholics.

1885 A Whiskey Trust monopolizes manufacture and sale of distilled liquors in America.

1891 Vladimir Shukhov, a Russian engineer, invents and patents the first thermal cracking of petroleum.

Cracking is the process whereby complex organic molecules such as kerogens or long-chain hydrocarbons are broken down into simpler molecules such as light hydrocarbons, by the breaking of carbon-carbon bonds in the feed stock.
The rate of cracking and the end products are strongly dependent on the temperature and presence of catalysts.

Cracking is the breakdown of a large alkane into smaller, more useful alkenes.

An overall process of disproportionation can be observed, where "light", hydrogen-rich products are formed at the expense of heavier molecules which condense and are depleted of hydrogen.

The actual reaction is known as homolytic fission and produces alkenes, which are the basis for the economically important production of polymers.

1898 Prince Edward Island bans the importation of alcohol.

1908 American engineers William Merriam Burton and Robert E. Humphreys independently develop and patent a similar process.

William Merriam Burton's thermal cracking processes operating at 700–750 °F (370–400 °C) and an absolute pressure of 90 psi (620 kPa).

Modern high-pressure thermal cracking operates at absolute pressures of about 7,000 kPa.

"Denaturing" process is required for manufacturers that want to avoid taxes levied on potable spirits.

1914 War Measures Act limits the freedom of Canadians.

1915 Saskatchewan bans the importation of alcohol.

1916 Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario ban the importation of alcohol.

1917 British Columbia and New Brunswick ban the importation of alcohol.

April 1, 1918 Any alcohol of more than 2.5 per cent is banned from importation into Canada.

In addition, there was no inter-provincial fair trade of alcohol.

The ban, lasting two years, was the first and last time national prohibition would be instituted in Canada.

Sam Bronfman, with his brothers Abe, Harry and Alan ('Bronfman' is liquor-man in Yiddish) have a modest hotel and prostitution chain.

Bronfman immediately enter the pharmacy business, selling via mail order, whiskey, labeling on bottles such as "Rock-A-Bye Cough Cure" and "Dandy Bracer–Liver and Kidney Cure."

Their "health tonics" contained sugar, molasses, bluestone(?), 36 percent alcohol, and tobacco.

October 28, 1919 Congress passed the Volstead Act.

Sam and Harry opened export houses along the Saskatchewan-North Dakota border.

They reduced 65-over proof white alcohol, mixing it with water, a little real whiskey and a touch of burnt sugar.

A shot of sulfuric acid simulated the aging process.

They charged $24 per barrel - it sold for up to $140.

"Sam and his brothers cut distribution deals with a fine cast of businessmen such as Arnold Rothstein, Meyer Lansky, Charles "Lucky" Luciano, and Arthur 'Dutch Schultz,' Flegenheimer.

In Detroit, the "little Jewish Navy" under Morris Dalit ferried the Bronfman liquor into the US.

In Chicago, James "Big Jim" Colosimo annoyed Sam Bronfman by showing no interest in buying his liquor, preferring to focus on his already profitable businesses of drugs, prostitution, and loan-sharking.

But Big Jim passed away suddenly. His nephew, John Torrio, took over, and wisely chose to help Bronfman usher his liquor into Chicago.

Torrio's lieutenant, a gent by the name of Al Capone, led the operations of bringing Bronfman's liquor from Saskatchewan to Minneapolis, then to Chicago, using cars, trucks and the Soo line.

Another gent by the name of Benjamin "Bugs" Siegel – and Meyer Lansky – were in charge of protecting Bronfman liquor shipments across the border against hijackers.

To meet the growing demand, Sam bought up farmland along the border and built an underground pipeline to pump his liquor – nicknamed, "Seagram Chickencock," a mixture of pure alcohol, sulfuric acid, caramel, water and aged rye whiskey – into the USA. Between 1920 and 1930, 34,000 Americans died from alcohol poisoning." - Frank Parlato

Comparison of Cannabidiol, Antioxidants, and Diuretics in
Reversing Binge Ethanol-Induced Neurotoxicity

The mechanisms by which alcohol induces neuronal oxidative damage are not known and could potentially include acetaldehyde-derived alkaloidal metabolite generation or inflammatory mechanisms.

Oxidative stress and cytotoxic edema have both been shown to be involved in such neurotoxicity, whereas N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor activity has been implicated in alcohol withdrawal and excitoxic injury.

Cannabidiol (CBD) was previously shown in vitro to prevent glutamate toxicity through its ability to reduce oxidative stress, we evaluated CBD as a neuroprotectant in a rat binge ethanol model.

TNFa, a potent cytokine inducer of neutrophil infiltration and generator of oxidative species in microglia and macrophages, has a prominent role in alcohol-induced liver disease, but its role in alcohol-induced neurotoxicity is unknown.

CBD has been shown to decrease TNFa release in a murine collagen-induced arthritis model (Malfait et al., 2000), and BHT can block TNFa activation of nuclear factor-KB (Zou and Crews, 2005), demonstrating that antioxidants can decrease inflammation.

Oxidative stress and inflammation are linked and difficult to tease apart.

mid-1920s Treasury Department estimates 60 million gallons of industrial ethanol are being stolen annually.

"The Prohibition Era in the United States is often used as an example of how banning recreational substances not only increases their popularity but also causes a boom in criminal activity.

Indeed, it was Prohibition that greatly increased the strength of the American Mafia, as the top crime lords of the day grew rich through the clandestine trade and sale of alcohol in addition to gambling and other activities." - Whitney Webb

"A riot of adulteration and chicanery ensued, with whisky being made in many saloon cellars and the dangerous secrets of synthetic booze-making being peddled abroad among the customers of the trust." - The Dearborn Independent, December 17, 1921

How Jews Gained American Liquor Control

Hidden in Plain Sight

1926 Calvin Coolidge turns to chemistry as an enforcement tool.

Some 70 denaturing formulas exist.

denature: de·na·ture [dee-ney-cher] verb (used with object), de·na·tured, de·na·tur·ing.

1. to deprive (something) of its natural character, properties, etc.

2. to render (any of various alcohols) unfit for drinking by adding an unwholesome substance that does not alter usefulness for other purposes.

3. Biochemistry - to treat (a protein or the like) by chemical or physical means so as to alter its original state.

4. to make (fissionable material) unsuitable for use in an atomic weapon by mixing it with unfissionable material.

Most simply add methyl alcohol into the mix.

Others used bitter-tasting compounds that were less lethal, designed to make the alcohol taste so awful that it became undrinkable.

To sell the stolen industrial alcohol, the liquor syndicates employed alchemists to "renature" the products, returning them to a drinkable state.

Stolen redistilled alcohol becomes the primary source of liquor.

Alcohol Activates Cellular Changes That Make Tumor Cells Spread

Treasury Department officials demand 10% methanol (CH4O) be added to all manufactured ethanol (C2H6O).

Christmas Eve 1926

Streets aglitter with snow and lights a man afraid of Santa Claus stumbles into the emergency room at New York City Bellevue Hospital.

He is flushed, gasping with fear: Santa Claus, he tells the nurses, is chasing him with a baseball bat.

The toxin-induced hallucination - a paroxysm of death - tallied up more than 60 people made desperately ill from methanol poisoning - eight dead.

Within the next two days, another 23 people died.

In New York City, 1,200 are sickened by methanol; 400 die.

Doctors see methanol toxicity regularly during Prohibition.

The bootlegged whiskies and so-called gins often made people sick.

The liquor produced in hidden stills frequently came tainted with methanol.

This outbreak was bizarrely different.

The deaths came courtesy of the Treasury Department.

"The government knows it is not stopping drinking by putting poison in alcohol." - New York City medical examiner Charles Norris

Leaky Gut: Is it Becoming an Epidemic?

Liver Disease Linked to Gut Bacteria and Leaky Gut

Leaky Gut: The missing piece in many Autoimmune Diseases

1927 Deaths in New York City climb to 700.

By this time denaturing formulas included notable poisons - kerosene and brucine (a plant alkaloid closely related to strychnine), gasoline, benzene, cadmium, iodine, zinc, mercury salts, nicotine, ether, formaldehyde, chloroform, camphor, carbolic acid, quinine, and acetone.

"Normally, no government would engage in such business. It is only in the curious fanaticism of Prohibition that any means, however barbarous, are considered justified." - Chicago Tribune editorial 1927

"Must Uncle Sam guarantee safety first for souses?" - Omaha Bee

1928 "Practically all the liquor that is sold in New York today is toxic!" - Charles Norris

Charles Norris assigns his toxicologist, Alexander Gettler, to analyze confiscated whiskey for poisons and publicized every death by alcohol poisoning.

Charles Norris points out that most of those sickened and dying are those "who cannot afford expensive protection and deal in low grade stuff."

Anti-Prohibition legislation pushes for a halt in the use of lethal chemistry.

"Only one possessing the instincts of a wild beast would desire to kill or make blind the man who takes a drink of liquor, even if he purchased it from one violating the Prohibition statutes." - Sen. James Reed of Missouri

1933 End of Prohibition: Estimates of at least 10,000 people from "denaturing".

"Our national experiment in extermination." - Charles Norris, the chief medical examiner of New York City during the 1920s

Denaturing program ends only once the 18th Amendment is repealed in December 1933.

1935 Joseph P. Kennedy, the father of John F. Kennedy, has multiplied his fortune 25x from 4 million dollars to over 100 million dollars smuggling scotch whiskey during prohibition.

Charles Shadel turns a colonial mansion in Seattle into the Shadel Sanatorium.

Gastroenterologist Walter Voegtlin and psychiatrist Fred Lemere create a medical practice that exclusively treats chronic alcoholism through Pavlovian conditioned reflex aversion therapy.

Aversion Treatment of Alcoholism: some reminiscences

1970s DEA sprays cannabis fields in Mexico with Paraquat, a herbicide, primarily intended to destroy crops.

Government officials insist awareness of the toxin will deter marijuana users.

A half century later they echo the official mantra of the 1920s - if some citizens end up poisoned, well, they brought it upon themselves.

2020 "I am troubled by evidence suggesting that Ms. Bronfman repeatedly and consistently leveraged her wealth and social status as a means of intimidating, controlling and punishing Nxivm's enemies." - Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis, Federal District Court in Brooklyn

Nxivm (pronounced NEX-ee-um), which was headquartered near Albany, became known as a "sex cult" after trial testimony showed that Mr. Raniere had groomed a group of women in the group to be his sexual partners.

During a secret ritual, the women were branded with his initials near their pelvis while saying, "Master, please brand me, it would be an honor."

The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the w☸rld ec☸n☸mic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by press☟ng em☠ti☠nal butt☠ns which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the fami♙y and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world.
