The Roberts Trap is Sprung

By:  Bill Dunne
One of the most overlooked aspects of the year just ended is the vindication of Chief Justice John Roberts -- a vindication that showed up as the national catastrophe known as ObamaCare got rolling.  Roberts may have also doomed Hillary Clinton's chance to live in the White House again... click here to read whole editorial


Cancer Cures the Cancer “Treatment” Industry Does Not Want You to Know


Dear Editor:

   Am not much of a writer but that’s not important here and I’m a ‘nobody’ so it doesn’t matter who I am or am not.  You can be sure however that this effort and the information is sincere. and factual (if you’re not already aware of the facts...that any 15 year old high school kid can find with not too much effort).

   First, thank you very much for your great and courageous ongoing work.

   My long time reading/research covering the period of the past 150-175 years reveal that there have been not one but several cures for cancers, some with no side effects.

   Prominent is/was the individual  Royal Raymond Rife, who has to be one of the most beautiful multi-talented individuals that was ever produced by the human race...a genius in the full sense of the word.

   His unique work in the successful cancer cure quest of the early part of the 20th century was repeatedly crushed and his whole life eventually ruined by the medical cover-up that exists stronger than ever.

   When I walk into a restaurant or many places of business and see the transparent, plastic containers containing pennies and nickels and dimes and quarters from kids along with five dollar, ten dollar even twenty dollar bills from adults for “Cancer Research” it gives me a sick heart.

  Why/how can so many people be so blind, not to mention the multi-millions who have suffered and died all this time on this beautiful planet ironically filled with so much collective insanity over an absurdly long period of time and with this unparalleled mess in the presence?  Indeed, ‘What hath (your God? truly) wrought?

   This Smotherup is a ‘bed fellow’ with your/our governmental and religious ‘Ups’...infinitely so much more than ‘Oops.’

   With your expertise and ‘vehicle’ (the FFJ) might you... somebody! to research the matter who have the experience and investigative know-how in such matters.  The only one I know of who has put something of substance to the fore is the David Lynes(?) book with the sensationalist, but pure, title “The Cancer Cure That Worked” published only in Canada back in the 80’s(?) a scattering of articles and/or declarations found in various writings.




lost in a sea of gullibility,

including my own, for so long.

Dear Anonymous:

   First off, you are not a ‘nobody’- you are a somebody.  You are one of the precious few people who put forth the effort to share your views and educate your fellow man with helpful information by taking the time to actually write a letter to the editor on an important subject.  Very few of your neighbors do the same.  Most are comfortably complacent, letting the establishment run their lives and do their thinking for them.

   Your topic—cancer— is interesting and one that I have been researching for quite a few years, now.  I’ll address your points on Dr. Rife’s cancer- (and disease-) curing technology, then explore a couple of other techniques that have been shown to be successful.  This editorial will only be on the strategies that have been found to successfully cure cancer in the past.  The causes of cancer, from the radiation of Wi-Fi, cell phones and cell towers to the adjuvants in vaccines and the pesticides,  insecticides, and genetically modified organisms that our factory-produced industrial processed foodstuffs are now immersed in are all potential causes of cancer that should enjoy exhaustive attention, but will for the time remain outside of the scope of this particular editorial.


Cancer “Treatment” is Big $$$

   The cancer research and “treatment” industry is a multi-billion dollar per year bonanza of profits for the health care industry.  I put the word, “treatment” in quotes because that’s all they are really interested in, that’s where the profit is—in “treatment” not in a cure.

   With all of that money, job positions and infrastructure at stake, it is realistic to expect the establishment will not only never find a cure for cancer, but will also aggressively resist anyone who does.   There have been several successful cancer cures discovered over the past century only to be shut down by the cancer industry’s most powerful and malicious ally—government.  As long as there is big money to be made in the private sector and a government bureaucracy controlled by that money, no successful cancer cures will ever be officially sanctioned.  Therefore, it is up to the individual person to take charge of his own life, learn what causes cancer and avoid it—then what cures cancer and seek it on his own.


Cancer:  The Body’s Response

   Nearly everybody gets cancer from time to time.  Under normal conditions, their body’s immune system identifies the foreign cells,  destroys them and excretes them as waste.  It’s when the immune system is compromised—or the person’s psyche affected by societal and medical preconceptions on cancer (more on this, later) that cancer cells multiply unabated.


Successful Results


Rife Frequency Generator

   Dr. Royal Raymond Rife was a microbiologist in the 1930s.  He identified a way to kill viruses, cancer and other causes of disease using a combination of audio frequencies carried on an RF carrier.  He researched how the various frequencies are able to be matched to the disease-causing organism’s resonant frequency and destroy it.

   His Rife Frequency Generator worked with a radio transmitter that transmitted in the 20-30 MHz range.  This is not the same technique as employed in today’s radiation “treat-ments,” which use cancer-causing X-rays and sometimes even Gamma rays that are millions of times higher in frequency.  For context, a 20 MHz frequency is comparatively low.  It is found in the amateur radio High Frequency (HF) bands below the CB band (29.1MHz) and commercial radio broadcast frequency spectrum of 88 MHz—108 MHz (the standard broadcast frequency range of commercial radio stations today).

    Dr. Rife found that when he swept the radio frequency between 20-30 MHz, modulated with various audio frequencies, cancer-causing microbes that made cells cancerous, and other disease-causing organisms were destroyed.  The Rife Frequency Generator was used quite successfully until the cancer “treatment” industry saw a threat to their profits and began a campaign of discrediting and denial.

Essiac Tea

   While the Rife Frequency Generator works on cancer cells that have already developed, another process which involves herbal treatments was developed in the 1930s by Rene Caisse, who was a nurse at Sisters of Providence Hospital in Haileybury, Ontario, Canada.  This process not only combats cancerous cells, but also restores the body’s natural functions of resisting their development in the first place.

   In the early 1900s, Rene was found to have breast cancer.  After moving to Ontario, from England, she met an Ojibwa Indian medicine man who shared his people’s recipe for a ‘holy drink’ that would cure her.  The drink was a tea made from select herbs found in the area.  She began drinking the herbal tea and found that  in time it cured her breast cancer.  She was so fascinated by it that she began her own research and also started successfully treating cancer patients at the hospital she worked at. 

  Of course, the cancer “treatment” industry got wind of her progress in curing cancer and began a vehement campaign of discrediting and denial.  Some establishment cancer research labs were found to test the tea in lab animals and purposefully skewed the tests to show negative results.  Others even claimed the tea caused cancer.  This was done as a defense to the establishment cancer industry so it could continue to market and profit from less effective, toxic chemo formulas and radiation therapies which make the body sicker, rather than healthier.

   The tea that Rene developed from the Ojibwa Indians is comprised of the following plant-based materials in specific proportions (proportions which she did not reveal publicly in order to protect her intellectual property rights) :


Sheep Sorrela herb, also called “sourgrass” that has appeared in historical archives in America and Canada in the early 1900s as a cure for cancer.  Rene found that sheep sorrel not only was effective at breaking down tumors, it was also effective in alleviating many chronic conditions and degenerative diseases.


Burdock RootBurdock root, harvested at the right time of the year and made into a tea, has been used for centuries as a blood purifier.  In 1966, two Hungarian Scientists reported ‘considerable anti-tumor activity’ in purified fraction of burdock.


Slippery Elm Barkthis herbal remedy is used to dissolve mucous that has been deposited in organ tissue, lymph glands and nerve channels.  It gathers up dissolved toxic waste material from all areas in the body, including the bowel and helps to discharge them.


Rhubarb RootRhubarb root purges the body of bile, parasites, and stagnating food by stimulating the gall duct to expel toxic waste matter.  It has been shown to alleviate chronic liver problems by cleansing the liver.


   Rene developed a proprietary blend of the above herbs and marketed it under the name “Essiac Tea”.  Essiac is Rene’s last name, Caisse, spelled backwards.

   In the 1990s Flora Manufacturing in British Columbia, Canada obtained the rights to produce the tea and enhanced it with additional herbs such as Watercress, Blessed Thistle, Red Clover and Kelp.  They then began marketing this enhanced version of Essiac Tea under the name FlorlEssence and continue to this day.

   For those who are interested in reading the whole Essiac Tea story, I recommend the book, The Essiac Report by Richard Thomas, ISBN 0-9639818-0-3 published in 1993 by The Alternative Treatment Information Network.


The Cancer in Your Mind

   Another cause of cancer that has to be considered is the preconceptions of the disease psychologically implanted into a person’s mind and operating under the “placebo effect.”

     The placebo effect has been studied extensively by Dr. Bruce Lipton, M.D. His book, The Biology of Belief:  Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles (ISBN 978-1-4019-2312-9) shows how the mind, if properly convinced, can manifest a condition merely based upon belief.  In addition, Dianetic research, as proffered by founder, L. Ron Hubbard, has postulated that malignant cancer may even be engramic in cause (an engram is defined as a mental image or picture that is recorded in a person’s reactive mind—as opposed to their analytical mind—of an experience containing pain, unconsciousness, and a real or fancied threat to their survival).

   The attitude a cancer patient has with regard to his/her cancer, what they are led to believe by their doctor and what they perceive society’s beliefs to be can all affect whether a cancerous tumor develops to the point of killing them, or dissolves into nothing and never comes back.

  For example, if a person’s power of suggestion is heightened enough, a doctor could tell them they have cancer and only have two years to live—even if they don’t have cancer at all!  Their mind can be so thoroughly hi-jacked that it convinces itself its body does have cancer and subsequently causes its body to manifest the outward signs of a tumor and the other trappings of cancer.  If that person allows himself to be led through the cancer “treatment” process with the belief that he will be dead in two years, then in all likelihood his mind will cause him to die in two years as predicted, again even if he/she never really had cancer to begin with.  This is the placebo effect at its worst.

   Conversely, if a person believes a particular cure is powerful enough, when they truly have cancer, the belief alone can be enough to cause the cancer to go away even if they were covertly only given a sugar pill, or saline solution.

  In Michael Talbot’s book, The Holographic Universe (ISBN 978-0-06-201410-8) a cancer case is recounted where a patient who had softball-sized tumors was cured using a placebo of saline solution (the liquid base for many IVs used simply for hydration in hospitalized patients) because that patient believed strongly enough that what he was being injected with was a very powerful cancer fighting cure.  It was only after the medical establishment produced a “scientific study” stating that the drug the man believed was injected into him was ineffective at fighting cancer, did the cancer tumors come back and ultimately kill him.  (see Holographic Universe, pages 93-94).


An Ounce of Prevention

   Of course, the best defense is a great offense.  The best way to fight cancer is to not expose your body to things that cause it to begin with.  The RF energy from cell phones in close contact with the skull has been shown to cause brain tumors.  Under prolonged use, the Wi-Fi from laptops and other portable devices can also cause cell mutations that lead to cancer. Many of the foods we purchase at the grocery store are cesspools of toxic fertilizers, insecticides and pesticides. You should buy organic foods whenever you can.  Yes, organic foods do cost a little more than their non-organic counterparts, but they do not contain the toxic chemicals and genetically modified seed genes that commercialized “Big Agri” has deployed as a profit-booster to their factory-produced industrial foods.  For a little extra cost on the food purchasing end, you can potentially save a whole lot of money and grief within the health care industry by allowing your body the tools and foods it needs to effectively take care of itself without the need for expensive, cost-prohibitive and invasive health care and pharmaceutical drug “treatments.”

   Also, a positive attitude and resistance to pack– or mob-mentality from society, health care and the cancer “treatment” industry will also put your body way ahead in its quest to live free of cancer by not allowing the mind to succumb to the popular, preconceived notions the mainstream of society has about cancer to begin with.
