It is truly time we all stand up against the holocaust of our people starting in America, both from chemical and medical holocaust. Medicines now kill but herbs and vitamins ( IF free of chemicals) heal. We must demand not compromise, but complete change. The medical and political system, great merchants of earth that will likely deceive all nations. Now, since everyone was made to get insurance to ensure we develop diseases and go in debt, we need to flip it. NOW demand holistic curing on insurance plans as an alternative(true) healing plan. WE must also work to create agencies maintained with our tax money to facilitate labs to test ALL products of consumption not limited to beauty and skin care products for ALL harmful substances. If they are found, proper measures, fines, imprisonment for serial killing for non compliance until our food, water, and air are healthy again. Even oxygen, colloidal silver, and vitamin C infusions and cat claw cures cancer quickly and painlessly. Shall we allow the mafia of medical mad men destroy us all? My life is in danger for speaking out. But mine compared to millions sneakily killed as the Jews were, but we are literally existing in a radiation and chemical furnace as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. My name is Amy Williams, through the Grace of God.MM
