A newly-released report from the DEA maintains that controlled prescription drugs are killing more Americans than any other type of drug. But according to Dr. Josh Bloom, who earned a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Virginia, this sounds very strange. In the first half, he joined George Knapp to discuss the truth behind the report-- many people will automatically assume that "controlled prescription drugs" refers to opioids, even though other classes of drugs are lumped together with them. Further, he pointed out that rather than prescription medications, illegal fentanyl and other synthetic analogs are now the most lethal type of opioids used in the US.
Some of the new analog drugs, often produced out of the country, are so potent and dangerous, he cited, that ingesting even a tiny amount can be fatal-- just 10 milligrams could be enough to kill 10,000 people. Bloom is concerned that patients who legitimately need pain medications are having more difficulty getting those type of prescriptions because of the opioid hysteria. It's just a very small percentage of these patients who have an addiction problem, he stated-- instead, it's recreational drug users/addicts that are fueling the epidemic. The vast majority of medical patients use their prescribed drugs responsibly, he added. For more, see Bloom's related article.
In 2010, Stuart Davis (spiritual artist, filmmaker, and songwriter) had contact with an 8-foot tall Praying Mantis entity as well as subsequent synchronicities that are hard to explain. Since then, he's written and sold three screenplays dealing with this otherworldly encounter. In the latter half, he described how this experience has not only changed him but his art too, leading to his eventual channeling of the Mantis being to get answers behind the phenomenon. Davis' brief but life-changing encounter with the Mantis took place while he had a high fever. The entity appeared in a purple robe in front of his bed, and he felt something like an electric current that was accompanied by the sounds of clicks and pops.
After the visitation was over, he was left with a curious phrase in his mind: "remember who you work for." He later saw an orb that he associated with the Mantis, as well as heard inexplicable tuning fork sounds. He documented a whole series of odd episodes where the crew working on his Mantis film encountered praying mantis insects at powerful emotional events, such as the funeral of one of their close associates. Fiona, another colleague of Davis', relayed her dream to him that he had an alien implant in his right shoulder. He indeed had one but had never told anyone about it. During his channeling session with the Mantis, the being informed him that they could use their namesake insects as signaling systems. The being also confirmed that they collaborated with the Grey aliens on occasion, but served to keep them in line. For more, check out this related audio documentary/video.
