"I've wanted to sign up for the online LEIRG for while, so I was quick to take advantage of this current "open enrollment" period. I'm very familiar with your work, as I picked up the Matrix series years ago. The caliber of your research is impressive and I've always found your analyses timely, educational (but sometimes shocking), inspirational and fascinating ..." 8/21/15
"It's incredible, Val. I was amazed at the quantity of information on the site and I love how it's very well organized. I just finished reading about half of the advanced Matrix 5 material near the bottom of the website, and now I'm just about to begin simultaneously reading the Matrix 5 Volume 4 & 5 editions. I greatly look forward to continuing to learn from the massive amount of information on the site."
"Thank you for all you do! I really appreciate the effort you put into the site and the content available."
"Wow! Thank you so much Val. I know you must put alot of time and energy into the journal and I really appreciate this. It is my first item of the day to see what's going on around the planet. Although, some days I am disappointed I "wake up" in the physical at all however, your sense of humor does help lighten the load along with witty insight."

After more than 20 years publishing the Leading Edge International Research Journal and the various MATRIX books, we ended with the first three printed volumes of the Matrix 5 project and M6, and stopped publishing all books in Jan 2011. Our focus then turned exclusively to managing the Leading Edge Research Journal Online, which began in 2006 as a expanded reincarnation of the LE Research Journal dynamic, as well as the delineation of online versions of Matrix 5 material beyond the first three volumes. Typically more than 1500+ news articles, videos and other items from 100+ sources are reviewed daily, allowing the selection and presentation of the most informative, relevant ongoing distillation which reflects significant changes in 18 different areas (see left )which encompass all the changing dynamics on and off the planet. Furthermore, it embodies a relational analysis of ongoing dynamics which uncovers latent information and info relationships not usually realized. Having a eidetic memory and creative drive to do this makes the website indispensable. See comments below for an idea what the experience is like.
For almost a decade, it has been the
best evaluative tool available for the 'observer', one who is a non-
participant in events but takes notes and evaluates, who wishes to
look much deeper at developing events and situations in order to see the
roots of ongoing issues and dynamics. Articles are viewable through the Printfriendly®
proxy, which largely eliminates ads, cookies and unnecessary bells and
whistles, and has options to enlarge text size for those who need
help reading, as well as printing, creating a PDF or emailing the article,
making the experience safer and the time more productive. Extensive
archives provide the opportunity for subscribers to do deeper

"Your website is the best of the best! ... It beats the tube any day. Frankly, it amazes me how you do all the research (and we appreciate it). I love that the articles are balanced, (which of course you DON'T get on mainstream news) so much happening now, and so much to be aware of, and the twist of humor. Your comments are appreciated..."
"One of the few sane voices in a wilderness of howling idiots".
"Val.. Without your Leading Edge site, i would be still grasping around for answers to the conundrum of what this world is about. Now it is clear as a bell on many levels"
"I personally feel you are still doing an outstanding job, given the milieu and stasis of concurrent 'events' and their relative myriad sourced and perspective journalistic "offal" that are at your disposal....I am in utter awe of all of your work....Logging into the Leading Edge Research Online Journal is, admittedly, one of the few things I look forward to each awakening 'day' "
"I greatly appreciate all the effort you put into Leading Edge Online. Just like the whole Matrix series it is such a standout aggregation of information, insight and enlightenment. A particularly useful aspect is how the subject matters are titled and structured. No where else across the internet do you see such balanced insight"
"The website is awesome; the epitome of diligent, and thorough research."
"Your website is my front row seat. Really appreciate all you do. Awaiting the finale!"
"I have enjoyed the your fantastic journal daily. I consider it my go to site for necessary important information about what is truly going on in the world and what and who is really behind it all, and the complete picture. End game seems to be getting stranger and more interesting by the day. I must stay upon things as they unfold. Thank you for keeping me truly informed. I appreciate it immensely.
"Val, you alone put to shame the multimillion dollar budget corporate news. Your work shows what a very advanced incarnation can do when really spirit-oriented: illustrious achievements. Your site continues to provide consistent and reliable information and, very importantly, helps to keep the focus in these difficult times."
"I really have been enjoying your web site. Things seem to be getting more hectic every day. I'm glad that I have had time to read, think and understand what is going on. Who said being unemployed is a bad thing? Much of the information on your site has made a great observer out of me and has made it much more fun to agitate. Luckily I have always had a good sense of humor, because people are so damn funny. Keep up the great work."
“Your website is one really awesome creation. This is mind-boggling stuff”
"Great site!! Thank you for all you do, it is a real service to me and is what's needed in these volatile times."
"I'm just speechless about the huge quantity of hot topics and high quality sources you are offering and (renewing on a daily basis). The day would need to have 48 hours for me to sort out and digest all the jewels you have to offer. I didn't expect this huge library, I thought the Online Journal would be kind of like a news-summary like the 100 pages of the old printed Journals you once published (from which I bought most of it). Anyway, big surprise to me."
"I frequent many pages on the web but the Leading Edge Journal leaves my usual "go to" sites in the dust."
“It's like I’ve hit the accelerator button on information. It's nice to see the many different sides to what's going on at the present time. Also the astrological considerations are a great read."
You're doing a sterling job plucking "readable material out of the morass that is going on". In the last 4/5 years it's been getting increasingly difficult to find anything remotely readable, never mind truly interesting. The information gatekeepers are working overtime!"
"I just wanted to express my appreciation for the effort you put into this service; it definitely cuts down on the amount of time I spend to get my news and I have to confess that I am better informed than I was previous to reading the online journal. The best part, of course, are your comments! It's nice to have your advanced perspective."
"Thank you for all the extraordinary and superb work! Your work in keeping up the website is very much appreciated. The site is just a goldmine of information, either directly or through its links."
"I have never seen a site with this much information from all over the world. I think you've done a top notch job Val, really. Although it was my first time I saw info on topics I never found before and as I get used to browsing around it'll be my morning coffee site of choice. And I will talk to a couple people about what you offer after I can get the bigger picture and send them your way. Really great work."
"Hello, I have sent out a renewal today. I decided to go for 6 months at a time now. I have seen for years just how strange people and situations have become , I now know that until we are out of here that there is no limits to the insanity and control being placed upon most people here , I had thought that it would stop, but power and control are a drug much more powerful than the chemical ones. Your website only gets better all the time ,the work you do on the website cannot be matched by any other on this planet! It was created for a certain types of developing/evolving spirits who are working to move beyond all the bullshit in the game, I never stop growing and learning with all the materials and information you have put out for us. Thank You. I am rather excited about the earth changes and solar/space developments as this signals that we are as you have said for a while getting close to the end here. Bring it on! WOOOHOOOOOO!"
"Thank you for your hard work, consistency and patience to keep us informed."
"You sure do a great job - your research - the site's perpetual improvement - the pics and videos. I enjoy it very much, I like the diversity of subjects from financial to humor (almost the same sometimes), from space to underground-sea, etc. Thank you for your creativity and your funny notes and comments!"
The LEIRJ just keeps getting better and better, now that I've found another job until the crash it is real easy to catch up on the latest, scanning through the journal. The information is easy to find and the dates are highlighted as to remember the last visit. To me, it's worth more than it costs. Val does an excellent job finding the best data related to EndGame."
"I have now logged in and had a look around, the content is impressive ... treasure hidden in all corners."
"Thanks again for all your hard work and of course your comments, which often make me giggle (which is very much needed these days) I go onto the journal website a few times a day/night and look forward to it greatly. Its very miserable here in the UK, not just weather wise but 'people wise' - I shall be so glad when I'm out of here."
"Thanks so much for making it so easy to stay on top of what is really going on in the world today. Your online journal is the best!"
"The sane and balanced view of your site has always been a real refreshment for my spirit."
"I totally love this subscription. You guys do a great job"
"Just want to let u know that it isn't said enough, nor do you seek it, BUT; nice job on the web site. Its really great how fast you can target a topic! The expansions are great. Its one stop shopping on issues and trends! So thanks, for the work u put in on this."
"Thanks for providing and allowing access to exciting and truly educational information."
A few sample articles from a few of the 18 different sections of the website, showing convention and style (dates removed):
Commentary: "Model Explains Perspectives Of Many Cultures In The World" "A world traveler who speaks ten languages, British linguist Richard Lewis decided he was qualified to plot the world's cultures on a chart. He did so while acknowledging the dangers of stereotypes. "Determining national characteristics is treading a minefield of inaccurate assessment and surprising exception," Lewis wrote. "There is, however, such a thing as a national norm." Many people think he nailed it, as his book "When Cultures Collide," now in its third edition, has sold more than one million copies since it was first published in 1996 and was called "an authoritative roadmap to navigating the world's economy," by the Wall Street Journal. Lewis plots countries in relation to three categories: [...] • Linear-actives — those who plan, schedule, organize, pursue action chains, do one thing at a time. Germans and Swiss are in this group. • Multi-actives — those lively, loquacious peoples who do many things at once, planning their priorities not according to a time schedule, but according to the relative thrill or importance that each appointment brings with it. Italians, Latin Americans and Arabs are members of this group. • Reactives — those cultures that prioritize courtesy and respect, listening quietly and calmly to their interlocutors and reacting carefully to the other side's proposals. Chinese, Japanese and Finns are in this group (SEE Cyclic Time in the related article below) . Some more details on the categories. [...] He says that this categorization of national norms does not change significantly over time: "The behavior of people of different cultures is not something willy-nilly. There exist clear trends, sequences and traditions. Reactions of Americans, Europeans, and Asians alike can be forecasted, usually justified and in the majority of cases managed. Even in countries where political and economic change is currently rapid or sweeping (Russia, China, Hungary, Poland, Korea, Malaysia, etc.) deeply rooted attitudes and beliefs will resist a sudden transformation of values when pressured by reformists, governments or multinational conglomerates." [...] Here's the chart that explains the world cultural situation in this regard. [...] The point of all of this analysis is to understand how to interact with people from different cultures, "By focusing on the cultural roots of national behavior, both in society and business, we can foresee and calculate with a surprising degree of accuracy how others will react to our plans for them, and we can make certain assumptions as to how they will approach us," Lewis writes. Related: "How Different Cultures Understand "Time" "Time is seen in a particularly different light by Eastern and Western cultures, and even within these groupings assumes quite dissimilar aspects from country to country. In the Western Hemisphere, the United States and Mexico employ time in such diametrically opposing manners that it causes intense friction between the two peoples. In Western Europe, the Swiss attitude to time bears little relation to that of neighboring Italy. Thais do not evaluate the passing of time in the same way that the Japanese do. In Britain the future stretches out in front of you. In Madagascar it ' flows into the back of your head from behind'. • Cyclic Time: Both the linear-active northerner and the multi-active Latin think that they manage time in the best way possible. In some Eastern cultures, however, the adaptation of humans to time is seen as a viable alternative. In these cultures, time is viewed neither as linear nor event–relationship related, but as cyclic. Each day the sun rises and sets, the seasons follow one another, the heavenly bodies revolve around us, people grow old and die, but their children reconstitute the process. We know this cycle has gone on for 100,000 years and more. Cyclical time is not a scarce commodity. There seems always to be an unlimited supply of it just around the next bend. The Chinese, like most Asians, “walk around the pool” in order to make well- considered decisions, but they also have a keen sense of the value of time. This can be noticed especially in their attitude toward taking up other people’s time, for which they frequently apologize. At the end of a meeting in China, it is customary to thank the participants for contributing their valuable time. Punctuality on arrival is also considered important—more so than in many other Asian countries. Indeed, when meetings are scheduled between two people, it is not unusual for a Chinese to arrive 15 to 30 minutes early “in order to finish the business before the time appointed for its discussion,” so not stealing any of the other person’s time! It is also considered polite in China to announce, 10 or 15 minutes after a meeting has begun, that one will soon have to be going. Again, the worthy aim involved is to economize on their use of your time. The Chinese will not go, of course, until the transaction has been completed, but the point has been made. [...] The Japanese are more concerned not with how long something takes to happen, but with how time is divided up in the interests of properness, courtesy and tradition."| "Hiking Story Reveals Cultural Differences Between Finns, Italians, And Japanese" "Mary's College, Bangor, North Wales, for English language summer courses, we came up with a different nationality mix every year; after a few years we decided some mixes were better than others and began to experiment in our recruiting. One year we decided to recruit in just three countries speaking languages so different that they would be obliged to communicate socially in English, and which were so far apart geographically that there would be no “bad neighbour” problems.

Wild Card: "Russian System Blocks NATO Electronics Inside 600 Km Bubble" Webster Tarpley " ... From the combat zone in northern Syria comes news of the deployment of a new Russian electronic jamming system which can reportedly blind radar, disrupt electronic guidance systems, and interfere with satellite imagery as well. As a result, NATO is effectively blinded inside a bubble of 600 km in diameter centered on the Russian base at Latakia, reports, Thierry Meyssan from Damascus.[...] The technology in question seems similar to the KRET Richag-AV system, although it apparently functions on a larger scale. A tactical version of this system was presented to journalists in the Russian city of Back in April 2015. As Sputnik reported then: “The Richag-AV system, mounted on the Mi-8MTPR1 (a variant of the Mi-8MTB5-1 helicopter) is said to have no global equivalent. Its electronic countermeasures system is designed to jam radar, sonar and other detection systems in the aims of defending aircraft, helicopters, drones, ground and naval forces against air-to-air and surface-to-air defense systems within a radius of several hundred kilometers. It can be mounted on units from any branch of the armed forces, including helicopters and airplanes, as well as ground and ship-based forces. The Mi8-MTPR1-based Richag-AV platform, using multi-beam antenna arrays with DRFM technology, is designed to actively jam and thus ‘blind’ radar systems in order to defend against radio-electronic guided weapons systems. In a combat situation, the system would operate as part of an aviation shock attack group aimed at breaking through virtually any defense system, blinding everything up to and including the US MIM-104 ‘Patriot’ anti-aircraft missile system.” NATO supreme commander and US Air Force General Philip Breedlove was probably talking about this new KRET system when he addressed the German Marshall Fund on Monday, September 28. Here Breedlove had warned that Russia was creating an “A2/AD bubble” over the Syrian coast, and the eastern Mediterranean. A2/AD is the abbreviation for anti-access and area denial. Breedlove pointed out that Russia has already established such bubbles over the Baltic Sea at the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, and also over the Crimea and the black Sea. [...]
MSM: "Researchers Find Inexpensive Way To Turn Seawater Into Drinking Water" "Researchers at the Alexandria University in Cairo have put forth a cheap, cost-effective technology to desalinate seawater to turn it into drinking water - within minutes. The published research paper titled “Desalination of Simulated Seawater by Purge-Air Pervaporation Using an Innovative Fabricated Membrane" can be found here. The purification of water for consumption purposes has long been a cumbersome and expensive process. In what may prove to be a significant milestone in researching cheaper, efficient ways to desalinate sea water, researchers in Egypt may have found a solution, according to a report in Scidev. The lack of access to clean drinking water results in over 840,000 deaths every year. A staggering 750 million people around the world do not have the fundamental human right and need to clean drinking water, according to estimates by Water.org. Strikingly, a (the) water crisis is the most substantial global risk based on impact to society (as an indicator of devastation), according to the World Economic Forum. [...] The new technology is primarily based on membranes. Specifically, membranes containing cellulose acetate powder that, along with other components, soaks up salt particles when water passes through them, resulting in desalination. “The membrane we fabricated can easily be made in any laboratory using cheap ingredients, which makes it an excellent option for developing countries,” explains Ahmed El-Shafei, an associate professor at Alexandria University and a contributing author to the study. [...] Here’s how it works: Using ‘pervaporation’ - a technique wherein impure water is first treated and filtered through the membrane. As a result, larger particles are removed before the remaining water is heated until it vaporizes. The water-vapor is then condensed to get rid of small impurities, eventually leading to clean water. “Using pervaporation eliminates the need for electricity that is used in classic desalination processes, thus cutting costs significantly,” contends El-Shafei. The novel method can be used to desalinate and purify water contaminated with impurities such as sewage, salt and dirt. Furthermore, the membrane along with the vaporization can be used in remote locations where electricity is hard to come by, making it an efficient method of desalination in developing and poorer countries with low resources. “The technology implemented in the study is much better than reverse osmosis, the technology currently used in Egypt and most of the countries in the Middle East and North Africa,” says Helmy El-Zanfaly, a professor of water contamination at Egypt’s National Research Centre.[...]
Commentary: "India Won’t Suppress Tewari’s Free Energy Generator" "India considers its own free energy program a matter of national pride, and is very much willing to risk antagonizing Petrodollar countries with its support on Reactionless AC Synchronous Generator (RLG) invented by its own Paramahamsa Tewari, an electrical engineer and former Executive Director of Nuclear Power Corporation of India. Years ago, Tewari has also proven the theories inside Bruce de Palma’s homopolar engine which first exposed this writer to the world of free energy technologies. Obviously, a country cannot implement its own free energy program without considering all possible consequence including a military response from Petrodollar countries, e.g. Saudi Arabia, UK, US. That’s why India has been aligning its own military program with that of Russia which at present is standing up, together with the BRICS countries, against the Nazionist cabal imposing all sorts of sanctions to destroy it. The BRICS alliance has in the past promised to release all suppressed technologies, e.g. free energy, for our responsible utilization. It looks like they are keeping their word. [...]"
Commentary: "EM Drive: Travel To The Moon In 4 Hours, Mars In 70 Days" "Day trips to the moon could soon be a reality after scientists confirmed a new propulsion drive, once thought “impossible” to build, actually works and could take punters to the lunar world in just four hours. The electromagnetic propulsion drive (EM Drive) was developed by British scientist Roger Shawyer in 2000, but considered scientifically impossible by his contemporaries. NASA later revisited the design, suggesting it may be possible. Vindicating Shawyer’s findings, Dresden University of Technology’s Martin Tajmar this week revealed the EM Drive is capable of producing thrust several times greater than a photon rocket and could reach Mars within 70 days and Pluto in 18 months. The drive produces thrust by harnessing solar power to fuel multiple microwaves which are enclosed in a chamber. In theory, unless a piece of the motor breaks, the drive could keep going forever, without any fuel. Tamjer presented his results in the 2015 American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics’ Propulsion and Energy Forum and Exposition In July 2015. Shawyer, the original inventor, also claims he is months away from proving the capabilities of his drive in a peer reviewed journal. Scientists remain baffled as to how the drive actually works.[...]"
Documentary: "Afghanistan's Billion Dollar Drug War" [25:45] "Ground zero ... 3 million addicted in Afghanistan.
Commentary: "Different Brain Regions Are Infected With Fungi In Alzheimer’s Disease" "The possibility that Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has a microbial aetiology has been proposed by several researchers. Here, we provide evidence that tissue from the central nervous system (CNS) of AD patients contain fungal cells and hyphae. Fungal material can be detected both intra- and extracellularly using specific antibodies against several fungi. Different brain regions including external frontal cortex, cerebellar hemisphere, entorhinal cortex/hippocampus and choroid plexus contain fungal material, which is absent in brain tissue from control individuals. Analysis of brain sections from ten additional AD patients reveals that all are infected with fungi. Fungal infection is also observed in blood vessels, which may explain the vascular pathology frequently detected in AD patients. Sequencing of fungal DNA extracted from frozen CNS samples identifies several fungal species. Collectively, our findings provide compelling evidence for the existence of fungal infection in the CNS from AD patients, but not in control individuals. [...]"
