Leuren Moret. That other guy,
we’re pretty sure, is none other
“Independent scientist” is a title that not only fails to confer authority on any subject matter, but actually indicates that the bearer of the title is a completely lunatic fringe loon and conspiracy theorist. Leuren Moret is all of the above. Indeed, according to herself, she is “an internationally recognized Geoscientist and specialist on the environmental and biological effects of ionizing radiation,” which would probably come as a surprise to most scientists working in any remotely related fields (she means, of course, “recognized by her youtube audience”). Moret is no geoscientist, and has no background in science. She does, however, have a history of wildly exaggerating and lying about her credentials and background (discussed here), which is not the same thing.
Moret’s main cause is fearmongering about nuclear power, and she is probably most famous for a (years-old) clip that went viral on Facebook in 2017, claiming that the relatively high rates of diabetes found in poor and ethnic minority communities in the US are caused by deliberate shipments of radioactive milk to those communities as part of a government-facilitated genocide by radiation against black Americans. The claim fails on all conceivable levels; details here. Note that her argument does not even reach the level of a correlation/causation fallacy, insofar as she fails to establish anything even remotely resembling correlation, or even the existence (radioactivity in milk) of the phenomenon offered as a causal agent. Nor is there any link between radiation and diabetes at any levels of radiation that would regularly be encountered in the US. According to Moret, however, it’s all a coverup, just like governments are covering up all the nuclear testings they are performing everywhere all the time for somewhat nebulous purposes. Moret has written several articles about these and related things for the Exopolitics website.
As for depleted uranium rounds, another mainstay of the anti-nuclear fringe, such rounds exist (in Moret’s mind) apparently just as a means to get rid of nuclear waste, thus making it one of the dumbest and ineffective waste disposal ideas imaginable – compare dumping it. Moret, though, claims that “In some studies of soldiers who had normal babies before the war, 67 percent of the post-war babies are born with severe birth defects – missing brains, eyes, organs, legs and arms, and blood diseases.” She neglects, of course, to specify which “studies” these may be. (There are, of course, none). Apparently she and Doug Rokke (profile here) share much of their “data”.
Moret is also into various mind control conspiracies, MKULTRA nonsense, chemtrails and HAARP conspiracies, since crankery rarely comes in isolation. According to Moret, HAARP, “the new global Weapon of Mass Destruction based on Tesla technology,” was “secretly co-developed by the U.S. and the Soviet Union at Livermore nuclear weapons lab and in Russia.” So yes, the whole Cold War was just a false flag, too, to fit Moret’s preferred theories about the dangers of imaginary radiation.
And thus we enter the truly deep layers of the rabbit hole. The Syrian war is a false flag apparently perpetrated by France. The 2015 Paris terrorist attack seems to have been a false flag as well, and part of France’s strategy to betray the US in favor of Russia. Meanwhile, the Japan earthquake and Fukushima disaster was triggered by a HAARP aerosol/chemtrails plasma weapon. And according to Moret, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was shot down by the US over Singapore airspace to commence a “30 day global false flag psyops for 5 NWO objectives”, including an “NWO Malaysia oil grab” and “militarization of SE Asia”.
Heck, let’s just give you a sample of article titles from her website (much of it with contributions from one Laurens Battis); you may notice some patterns:
- “How to avoid Jesuits, U.S. & Russian mind control from turning America into a NWO prison”
- “Jesuits behind 1979 Iranian hostage crisis and 2015 Jade Helm to destroy US constitution”
- “Jesuit Depopulation Plan = Radiation + GMOs + Vaccines + GeoEngineering + Wars + $Collapse + Transhumanist Agenda”
- “Jesuit-controlled Obama/US authorizes nuclear attack on Donetsk (Ukraine)”
- “NWO Antichrist figure arises in Greece. Depopulation in USA, Serbia, New Zealand, Canada. Putin’s role: Collapse Western economy”
- “Jade Helm, Ukraine, EU & Greece Deconstruction, Pope, UN Post-2015 Development Agenda are One Integrated Jesuit Operation”.
Oh, and of course: You can prevent and heal the effects of all this radiation, HAARP effects, chemtrails and cell phone radiation with nutritional supplements – “An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure” – that Moret conveniently hawks.
Also predictably, many conspiracy theorists have concluded that Leuren Moret herself is part of the coverup and “working for The World Conqueror Zionists”. So it goes.
Diagnosis: Utterly deranged and dangerously delusional conspiracy theorist. Useful for pointing and laughing, but the fact that some – admittedly severely critical-thinking-challenged – people actually listen to her is, even after Trump, utterly baffling.
