Vindication

Last Update: September 05, 2020

Hi friends,

I miss all of you! It has been quite awhile since I have been here regularly though I keep an eye on what is going on. It has been so difficult and tumultuous to deal with the downfall of my websites that I just had to take a break.

As some of you know I went from the top to the bottom very quickly. I am happy to say I am being somewhat vindicated now but I would have a long uphill path to rebuild my sites. I don't know if I am willing to dedicate the time on that right now since I have my job and real estate business to focus on and my husband and I are still dealing with health problems.

The basic run down in case you are interested:

I had several websites up and running including one on natural supplements and products. This winter I started to discuss Covid 19 on this site and reviewed products that had been shown through studies to be effective against other forms of coronavirus such as SARS. I clearly stated there was NO treatment yet for Covid 19 and no one knew what would work since it was too soon for tests to be done. I said I was not a doctor. I spent a great deal of time adding links to full text studies in academic journals about these supplements so my readers could see for themselves and did not have to take my word for anything. I did not promote any product of my own, I only had links to Amazon for these supplements. I did not sell any information such as e books, so all that I said was free for anyone to read. They did not have to pay to see anything. I was relaying information that showed why the Covid 19 virus would be vulnerable to these supplements due to the fact Covid and SARS share the same type of structure and means of entering our cells. They use their spikes to attach to our cells and utilize the same enzyme to get past our defenses. Therefore, what blocks that process in one can work on the other. This was not my theory. This is a scientifically proven concept.

Despite all that I got:

All my posts unranked by Bing (which had been the source of most of my traffic for that site).

My account shut down by Amazon so I no longer make any commissions from that website or my other website that is about pet products (not related) since both sites were under the same affiliate account.

I lost over $600 that Amazon owed me but will not pay out since they claim I violated the terms of the agreement. Of course when I signed up with Amazon there was no Covid 19 yet so obviously there was nothing in the agreement that said we could not write about it. There is fine print that they can change the agreement when they want however.

Then I was threatened by the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communication Commission. They said I had to immediately remove all references to Covid on my site. I was furious at this gross breach of my 1st Amendment rights (Freedom of Speech) but I took them down.

All this was bad enough but then this summer while my husband was in the hospital I got notified that I was being investigated by my state's Attorney General's Office. I was interrogated over the phone and now just have to wait to see what they will do. They may or may not charge me with something. Because I was on the FTC list of companies that discussed Covid they came after me. When I asked why they were investigating me when there are so many sites selling mystery products with no disclaimers, no ingredients listed, no studies cited etc. they said they can't do anything about companies in other states but since I am in Alaska they can come after me. Basically I was a big target since there are not many other websites like mine based in my state.

I have no idea what happens next. It is hard to fight Amazon, the Federal Government and my state attorney general's office on my own.

Last week the Alaska Attorney General just had to step down as it was revealed he was harassing female staff.

In any case, it is interesting that I am seeing studies now on the supplements I reviewed in relation to Covid 19! They are proving to be effective against the virus in these studies! It will be harder for them to come after me now I hope.

I have no idea where all of this will end up but it sure feels nice to be getting some vindication! I wasn't crazy or misleading. I was sharing information that indicated these supplements could be useful and now that is being proven.

My husband now has bursitis in his foot and I thought how ironic it is that I could not show him my post on bursitis on my website since I have taken down all of my content. Information on many topics that could help people is being censored. It had nothing at all to do with Covid, but the investigator for the Attorney General's office asked if I planned to continue with my site. I took that to mean that they would be less likely to press charges against me if I stopped. So, at least for now, I have taken down all the content on the site. I still have it, it is just not live right now.

Anyway, it has been a very challenging year (as it has for so many people) but there is a glimmer of hope.

I hope all of you are doing well online and offline too!

Let me know!

Jessica

Oh my!

Many undergoing the same in many countries
People are sentenced wIth heavy fees.
Some even taken into prison.
Especially uk, nz , australia & soain

In europe many peaceful protests against sanitarian dictature are crushed down with agression and heavy abuse of protesters

Seems like they want to install a world order wIth imposed vaccines. Libertarian socialism as it is called. With free pedhophiles at service of satanic rituals and elites...

The truth is terrible

Holy cow!! So many websites and people are being censored! What boggles my mind is that it's a lot of science based information that is being censored!

I am so sorry you are going through this! I hope that it all settles down for you and that you are able, at some point to put up your websites again.

I am sending you hugs!

Thank you Anna! Yes. The drug companies run our country. Anything that challenges them or offers an alternative (supplements, vitamins, minerals etc.) is questioned to the point that nobody knows what to believe and many people think they are useless or dangerous. This is truly ironic since the basic vitamins and minerals are what we all NEED to survive. That is not negotiable. Most Americans have low levels of these nutrients (due to eating junk food, soil depletion of nutrients resulting in poor quality produce and many other reasons) and therefore many health problems are common. These nutrients are not able to be patented however and are much cheaper than prescription drugs. The drug companies depend on us all spending a fortune on prescriptions so natural treatments are a huge threat to them. They are so powerful they and the FDA run the medical field as well. They determine what medical students learn in medical school too! I have talked to many doctors who say they are not trained about vitamins and minerals in medical school.

How crazy is that?

Oh I know!!! It is mind boggling! The medical field is great for treating life threatening illnesses and events. But when it comes to actual health....they are clueless.

I think it's so very sad! Keep going once you are able to and message me your websites! I am all about vitamins and eating whole foods for gut health and overall health!

Take care, stay strong and you are not alone!

Thank you! I am staying out of the health niche for now. I don’t know when or if I will pick it back up.

This is horrendous but it shows you've got them rattled. I am also waiting to be struck off youtube and facebook any minute now but we all need to pull together with this one. This is the biggie and we will lose our freedoms if we put our heads in the sand. They have the money but we've got the masses. Good on you Jessica and remember, you're not alone!
Everyone needs to swamp the social media with posts and express what you believe and don't believe in. Wording your posts carefully trying to skirt around certain words. There is a black list for such words and phrases, you know what they are, so make it difficult for them. They can't ban everyone! I'm trying to put on 3-4 posts each day using Facebook and YouTube. Getting people to share is really important. Once the world is au fait with what's really going on, we may tip the balance!
Find a way Jessica to carry on with your work. This is the first time I've seen your work and I'm full of admiration! Good luck to us all!

Hello Ches,
I see you write about magnesium on your site. That was the topic of my very first posts on my site as it helped me and my family so much and so many common health conditions are linked to low magnesium. I know it is not coincidence that the most common health conditions in the U.S. such as heart disease and high blood pressure also occur with low magnesium.

I think I was a big target since I was ranked #1 (on Bing) or in the top results (on Google etc) for search terms such as "Supplements for Coronavirus" this winter. Due to the great training here at WA, it appeared that I had a professional site. When I was interrogated by the Attorney General's office they asked if anyone else was involved in my site, if I had writers etc. They commented that my site looked so professional that they had trouble believing I ran it and wrote the content myself.

What irony!!!!

Thanks for your thoughts. I hope your site continues to stay afloat.

Jessica

Good for you @chessie! They can't shut us all down! You are right about that!

Wow!

The Powers that be love to throw around their powers and they don't care who they trample over.

I'm sorry that you have got caught up in this and hopefully nothing more will come of it.

Health related issues to do seem to have come under increased scrutiny and I am sure for all the wrong reasons.

Big Pharma wants their $$$ and they want us to be dumbed down.

Take your time. Eventually shake it off. And start again.

Maybe even write a book anonymously about it later after the dust has settled.

Wishing you the best Jessica!

To Your Success!

Thank you Mel. I agree. It has been a very strange experience to do so well, have the best of intentions to try to help people and share information and then be treated like a criminal. It is very disillusioning.

Stay strong Jessica!

I believe its one of those life experiences that we can not fully understand the value of until some time in the future. I have had a few of those. :-)

Jessica, I miss you too! I think you have been wronged, and hope you get things sorted out Miss seeing you on here. Miss our messages. Some things shouldn't change, but of course we can't always control change. I do hope you are able to work something out, and can come back to us. Best of luck to you -- sending my most positive throughts.

Hi Fran! I miss talking to you. I hope you are doing well. I will keep my WA membership. I won't be leaving. It has been very hard to keep up with work while recovering from Covid. I am one of those people that had long lasting effects and seemed to have it reactivate over and over. I am not as bad as Aaron however. He has had the pleurisy, double kidney infections and type 1 diabetes all since he got sick and now the foot problems. It has been constant. Thank goodness we both work for the state and have great insurance coverage. We just maxed out his annual prescription amount in 2.5 months! Insulin isn't cheap.

You got Covid? I did not realize that...as if you didn't already have enough on your plate. I am glad you are keeping your membership, and do hope something bright is on your horizon.

Thanks Fran. I never got tested because no one in Alaska was supposed to have it yet (in February) and it was hard to get tests then since the testing centers were not set up. Now I am hearing of more and more people who probably had it earlier in the winter like us. I am pretty sure (99.9%) that I had it however. I had everything from fatigue, sore throat, cough, horrendous muscle aches, stomach issues, no appetite for weeks, pinkeye and even the loss of taste and shortness of breath. If it was not for the loss of taste and shortness of breath I could imagine it was just a bad flu but it was different. The sore throat went on for the whole month too. For a while I felt like I couldn't get enough oxygen. I had to focus on breathing deeply. That was before all the news about Covid symptoms so at the time I thought it was just the flu. Then it came back several more times. Now I know it was probably in my system the whole time and just resurfacing. I am still getting sore throat, muscle aches and fatigue off and on 6 months later. It just never ends.

Aaron also got it and we think it triggered his problems. I had to take him to the emergency room 3 times in a month (and never had to before). He tested negative 3 times but it was probably too late for it to show up on the tests by then since he didn't get all these extra problems until the second bout months later. He ended up with double staff infections in both kidneys and needed surgery as well as pleurisy and Type 1 diabetes.

That is what makes me so mad. All the people saying Covid is not that big of a deal don't understand that you may be debilitated for life even if you don't die. It is affecting young people too.

It's a terrible disease, and I, for one, certainly think it's a big deal. I am trying my best not to get it. Hope you two recover completely.
