American Inquisition

The thinking classes in America want to emulate the theocratic lunacy of the Sixteenth Century. They have become everything they used to despise as cruel, unjust, and crazy.

The world turns and things change. Everybody knows that. But the turnings and changings throw off sparks, which light fires. The intellectual turnings of the European Renaissance lit fires in the lumbering bureaucracy of Roman Catholicism, burdened as it was with abstruse theology larded with lingering, age-old superstition. Witch hunts, inquisitions, and persecutions ensued, even as the authority of the old order wobbled and frayed. The gross cruelties of the people in charge didn’t bolster their prestige, and a few centuries later you see the result: belief is dead.

Likewise in Western Civ today. Our authorities have disgraced themselves behind a new theology of degenerate “science” that veers back into superstition and necromancy. Proof that they don’t believe their own story shows in their desperate efforts to hide the data, confabulate numbers, ignore true facts, and lash out viciously at anyone who discloses their zealous deceits.

Case in point: the persecution of Meryl Nass, MD, in the state of Maine by its Board of Licensure in Medicine. Dr. Nass is an internal medicine physician and a recognized expert in bioterrorism who famously uncovered the origin of the mysterious “Gulf War Syndrome” as a reaction to the US Army’s own anthrax vaccine. She has testified before Congress and in many state legislatures about vaccine safety. After the emergence of Covid-19, Dr. Nass spoke out and blogged about the dangers of the new vaccines, and in favor of early treatment protocols using ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Her outspokenness attracted the ire of Maine Governor Janet Mills, and Mills’s sister, Dora Anne Mills, the “Chief Health Improvement Officer” at Maine Health, a huge network of twelve hospitals, 1,700 doctors, and 22,000 employees, deeply invested in the Covid vaccine program.

In January of this year, Dr. Nass’s license was suspended by the Licensure Board based on complaints by two “activists” that she was “spreading misinformation” and for her use of early treatment protocols with her own patients. The board compelled Dr. Nass to undergo a neuropsychological evaluation to determine if she was a drug abuser or suffered from mental illness. (Flag that, since it implies official defamation of her character.) The board accused her of “fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation” in her practice, “conduct that evidences a lack of ability or fitness,” and being “an immediate jeopardy” to public health.

For most of this year, the board refused to entertain any defense by Dr. Nass against her suspension until a hearing held last week, October 11, when she appeared before the Licensure Board with her attorney, Gene Libby. The hearing in its entirety can be watched on video at Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Children’s Health Defense website. (The first two-thirds the board prosecutes its case; the last hour Dr. Nass presents her defense.) Days before the hearing, the Licensure Board withdrew all the “misinformation” charges against Dr. Nass without explanation and now bases its case on Dr. Nass’s use of early treatment protocols.

The hearing was highly instructive on the tactics and strategies for defeating official persecutions against doctors in America (and broadly across all of Western Civ these days), since the Maine licensure Board acted with obvious ignorance and malice that is easily revealed. Dr. Nass’s attorney Gene Libby deftly got the Board on-record attesting to their own deliberate misconduct. For instance, he repeatedly invoked their charges against “spreading misinformation,” forcing the chair, an eye doctor named Maroulla S. Gleaton, to affirm that the charges had been precipitously dropped days before. There was also some lively discussion of the board’s imputations against Dr. Nass’s mental health and insinuations of drug abuse — Dr. Nass testified that she’d never been treated for mental health issues, had never taken pharmaceuticals for them, never took illicit drugs or been accused of it, and, where alcohol was concerned, enjoyed “about five drinks a year.”

Watch the video. I think you can see that the Licensure Board members begin to realize in the proceeding that Dr. Nass is fixing to sue the living shit out of them, and that just about everything they’ve said implicates them in a malice-driven campaign to defame her. In fact, it may be appropriate as events move forward for a court to recommend suspending the medical license of board chair Maroulla S. Gleaton, and the several other board members who are doctors (some are not) for official misconduct, as well as paying damages to Dr. Nass.

The archbishops, confessors, and tortureors in the Inquisitions of yore had, in retrospect, at least one excuse for their misdeeds (what we might call today “crimes against humanity”): empirical science was then in its infancy and their ideas about how the world worked were still largely driven by myth, fear, and occultism. Until fairly recently, when Western Civ went off-the-rails, the thinking classes of America would have easily labeled the activities of the old Inquisition as a form of group insanity.

Alas, the thinking classes across Western Civ have now gone insane. Today, they are the ones perpetrating real crimes against humanity. They have given themselves permission — as elites will — to behave cruelly, unjustly, and idiotically against the public interest and against the inherent rights of individuals to fair treatment. They’ve subjected millions to injury and death. They’ve maintained the fraudulent “Emergency Use Authorization” (EUA) for hugely profitable, ineffective, and dangerous drugs by prohibiting treatments with proven effective drugs — the use of which would nullify the EUA and the legal protections it affords the drug-makers. They’ve concealed the statistics that would show all that. And they appear to be acting with arrant malice driven by political actors offstage.

Dr. Nass is demonstrating how they can be effectively opposed. There should be thousands of heroic figures like her among the doctors of Western Civ. Ask them why they are not standing up in places like California, with its new, idiotically-written law against doctors speaking freely with their patients for the sake of informed consent (“spreading misinformation”). These reprobate lawmakers — and the depraved Governor Gavin Newsom who signed the act — need a lesson in what it means to be civilized. The people running the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA deserve severe floggings in the civil and criminal courts. They all know it now, too, and they’re running scared.

    I would like to see the licenses pulled from these doctors who castrate young boys and cut the breasts off young women. Whatever happened to, “First, do no harm!”

    • MaryQueen October 17, 2022 at 9:54 am #

      Same. Just saw a tweet yesterday of a trans-culted young woman who is smiling and showing off her uterus in a jar. They didn’t stop at cutting off the breasts of young women, now they are yanking out their uteruses as well.

          • Woodchuck October 17, 2022 at 4:06 pm #

            @ Rain Waters – I’m unsure of what you are getting at here.

            I’ve a distant ancient relative in the family who made himself famous by accidentally sparking a methane explosion in an underground tank holding animal poop. This was back in the 1800’s when real cesspools were around. The explosion shattered the wooden lid over it and sent some poop and people flying. I shit you not! Fortunately nobody suffered any major injuries.

            Your phrase “sticking one’s head in a shitter and reposting crap” reminded me of this crappy old story about the good old days. A time when you could get a real job shoveling shit all day long. That was valuable shit before the days of synthetic fertilizers. No shit – no food!

          • MaryQueen October 19, 2022 at 7:28 pm #

            @Rain Waters they get social credit for reposting their crap.

      • Penelope Dreadful October 17, 2022 at 9:59 am #

        They are sick people. Cutting off healthy body parts. If I was under the delusion that I was Admiral Nelson, would they cut off an arm for me??? Of course, my boobs would have to go too. Would they do that, or would they send me to a shrink?

        The recent admission that they knew the Pfizer vaccine would not stop the spread should be the final straw.

        • benr October 17, 2022 at 10:05 am #

          There is a term for people who want to cut off body parts they feel don’t belong.
          Body Dysmorphia an actual mental disorder.

          • C.O.Jones October 17, 2022 at 10:15 am #

            That Jolie woman led that charge a few years ago when she announced she was having her breasts removed because her mom died of ovarian cancer.

            Her husband commended her for her bravery. I’m pretty sure they are now divorced.

            While this was taking place, I told my now ex-wife I was going to seek castration because my dad died from lung cancer. She said that “made sense.”

            Using Hollywood imbeciles as thought leaders is devious but effective.

          • redrock October 17, 2022 at 10:19 am #

            They are all mental disorders. We used to call them fucking lunatics, now I call em dimmyk rats.

            I’m confused C.O., do you breath through your testicles?

          • C.O.Jones October 17, 2022 at 10:40 am #

            Yes hmuller, I learned to breathe thru my testicles by watching the aforementioned Ms. Jolie ovulate via her breasts. Makes sense, no?

          • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 10:49 am #

            Angelina carries mutation in the BRCA genes. People with those mutations are at higher risk for breast and ovarian cancer both.

            Whether removing the breasts and ovaries fixes the whole problem remains to be seen; but Angelina did not want her children to go through losing their mother to cancer early.

            Rush Limbaugh of all people, called her brave for that decision.

            Hollywood is full of women with fake breasts anyway.

          • C.O.Jones October 17, 2022 at 11:08 am #

            I certainly don’t want to argue, Beryl but mutilating yourself does not make sense no matter what reason you choose to give.

            Living a healthy lifestyle – diet, exercise, the whole schmere – would seem to be a better cancer preventative that self-mutilation.

            I have no desire to speak ill of the dead but being commended by Rush Limbaugh would make me uneasy at best.

          • Jarek October 17, 2022 at 11:43 am #

            Yeah, it was a rational decision based on her family history. She was a woman of great beauty. No negative body issues there, except perhaps the normal ones of losing it, growing old and in her case, of dying due to breast cancer.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 11:46 am #

            CO I’m not arguing, I’m just pointing out her reasoning, which wouldn’t seem nutty to her.

          • Amman October 17, 2022 at 1:11 pm #

            Mental disorder is another way of saying nut-case, right?

          • GreenAlba October 17, 2022 at 1:51 pm #

            “I certainly don’t want to argue, Beryl but mutilating yourself does not make sense no matter what reason you choose to give.”

            Beryl’s right. Lots of ordinary young women who have this dangerous gene have prophylactic surgery to reduce their chances of leaving their children motherless. It’s a brave but hard decision to make.

            Eating good food will do diddly to deal with a defective and dangerous gene. Some people are born unlucky.

          • mrs_saj October 17, 2022 at 6:54 pm #

            Breast cancer runs in my family on my mother’s side. Last year I had the genetic testing done to rule out BRCA as well as a number of other breast cancer genetic mutations.

            Yes, I was that worried about it. I am not sure it’s bravery, maybe pragmatism, but it surely isn’t body dysmorphia. So I don’t judge her, nor would I allow her health decisions affect mine.

          • Islander October 17, 2022 at 8:21 pm #

            GA and others:

            I don’t get the reasoning of cutting off breasts before any cancer is detected.

            Wouldn’t intensive monitoring be a better way to go?

            The amount of publicity that was attached to the double mastectomy IMHO indicates that it was partially intended as an example for others to follow.

            No doubt it functioned as a publicity stunt, even if the original reasoning was medical.

            Otherwise the surgery would have remained private, like any number of other surgeries that Jolie might have undergone.

            For instance, removal of genital warts.
            Not to mention lip plumping, cheek definition, and other extensive plastic surgery she has had done on her face. That was not advertised.

            You can easily find before/after pix on line.

            One result of the boob publicity is that now people tend to take a second look at photos of her that include her chest area. All publicity is good publicity!!

          • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 11:22 am #

            I don’t know that much about it, islander, but I presume they discuss the relative risks with their surgeon, in terms of surgery, or regular testing. I think one of the mutations has an 86% risk of cancer
            (breast and/or ovarian) by age 50, so it’s largely a major risk in pre-menopausal women, in whom such cancers grow very aggressively. So, even if you were getting an annual check, a lot of damage could be done in the year before the next one. Ovarian cancer is known for being quite far advanced before you know you’ve got it.

            Leaving aside trans folks, I don’t think anyone, even Angelina Jolie, would choose to lose her boobs for publicity. Sometimes the celeb angle is a genuine help. There was a young woman in the UK called Jade Goody, who was on Big Brother. She died very young of cancer (leaving a little boy of four) through not getting a regular smear test, and the publicity around her death did push up screening levels.

          • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 11:23 am #

            Same phenonemon when Bobby Moore, the England team footballer, died of bowel cancer, which people didn’t talk about much before that. Now everyone is screening!

          • C.O.Jones October 18, 2022 at 4:12 pm #

            I’m a huge fan of JHK and of this site and I am regularly entertained by the posts in the comments. I have no desire to be ostracized but I have to ask… Green Alba are you aware that men can get breast cancer? Before you tell me how rare it is, be aware that I know first hand. Are you also aware that the BRCA genetic condition can affect men? Do you advocate men having their breasts removed because those breasts might become cancerous? Does anyone really believe that having an appendage amputated will prevent a gene from triggering cancer in the underlying system? OK, I’m done.

          • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 4:48 pm #

            You seem to have got your knickers in quite a twist, Mr Jones. Why the tone, I wonder.

            I spent 20 years editing medical books, but even without that I’m perfectly aware of the occurrence of male breast cancer. Male breast cancer is a much more dangerous beast specifically because of the small amount of breast tissue between the hypothetical tumour and the adjacent non-breast tissue, making early metastasis more of a risk. I suspect it would also make the idea of prophylactic mastecomy a bit of a nonsense. But I’m not a doctor or a surgeon so I’m just surmising.

            I’m not sure where you got the idea that I advocated anything at all. Perhaps you could point me to the part where I gave out any kind of medical advice.

            Once you’ve calmed down, obviously.

            It seems to me that what I did was (a) explain that perfectly ordinary women who are not actresses get prophylactic mastectomies to reduce their chances of dying of breast cancer. When challenged (again, I advocated nothing), I emphasised that I had no expertise but am aware that said women would have discussed their individual situation with their surgeon. Again, when you’ve calmed down, perhaps you can tell me where I failed your standards of conversation.

          • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 4:51 pm #

            Would it be OK to opine that you come over as a bit of a pompous ass?

            OK, I’m done.

          • C.O.Jones October 19, 2022 at 3:37 pm #

            No, Green Alba, my knickers are not in a twist but I do find it amusing that you decide to go ad hominem with your pompous ass comment. Interesting observation given that I’m neither pompous nor an ass. I am, however a critical thinker who has spent more than 2 decades designing, coding and testing medical and surgical software as well as serving as a technical consultant for those performing similar work.

            Quoting you here: “Lots of ordinary young women who have this dangerous gene have prophylactic surgery to reduce their chances of leaving their children motherless. It’s a brave but hard decision to make.”

            A “brave but hard decision” could be interpreted as advocacy but your invitation to have that pointed out to you is disingenuous at best. It’s pretty obvious that you’re looking to justify your opinion and gain a perceived upper hand by putting someone else down. Encouraging someone who is completely calm to “calm down” is an obvious attempt to appear thoughtful and rational when your defense of self mutilation is pointed out to be what it is – hogwash.

            My main point is that if your genes are triggering cancer, self mutilation is hardly a logical response even if Hollywood encourages you to chop off body parts. Eye of the beholder and all but your bravery is seen by some as nothing more than publicity seeking stupidity.

            I’m glad I could clear that up for you.

            I’m off to queue up Blind Willie Johnson’s Motherless Children….

          • GreenAlba October 19, 2022 at 5:59 pm #

            Thanks for making my point by admitting that saying ‘a brave and hard decision’ could be interpreted blah blah.

            You can ‘interpret’ something any way you want, but it could equally be a brave and hard decision to decide not to go for surgery. To my mind it takes courage either way. I was arguing against your presumption regarding Angelina Jolie’s or anyone else’s motives, which are not yours to know, but you can be pretty sure that anyone in that position has both taken expert advice and considered the pros and cons extremely seriously.

            The fact remains that I advocated and advocate nothing. You made that up and your credentialism doesn’t change a thing.

            And I continue to consider your sarcastic and presumptuous ‘I have to ask, GreenAlba, are you aware …’ etc. pompous, sorry.

          • GreenAlba October 19, 2022 at 6:00 pm #

            I could say your tone ‘could be interpreted as pompous if that makes you feel better.

          • GreenAlba October 19, 2022 at 6:09 pm #

            For your further information (which I do not endorse or make any comment on, other than offering it):

            cancer.gov/types/breast/risk-reducing-surgery-fact-sheet

            How effective are risk-reducing surgeries?

            “Bilateral prophylactic mastectomy has been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer by at least 95 percent in women who have a deleterious (disease-causing) mutation in the BRCA1 gene or the BRCA2 gene and by up to 90 percent in women who have a strong family history of breast cancer (2-5).

            “Bilateral prophylactic salpingo-oophorectomy has been shown to reduce the risk of ovarian cancer by approximately 90 percent and the risk of breast cancer by approximately 50 percent in women at very high risk of developing these diseases (1).”

            That was just the first source I came across. I presume if one were in the unenviable position of men or women with sucj a choice to make, one would look up a lot more sources of information and ask one’s doctor and hypothetical surgeon. But 95% is quite significant.

            Or one could just ask for your opinion. I certainly wouldn’t offer mine.

          • GreenAlba October 19, 2022 at 6:58 pm #

            Actually I take back that softener where I said your tone could be interpreted as pompous.

            I just noticed your ”I’m glad I could clear that up for you.’ so I fully reinstate my initial judgement of pompous ass. Particularly in view of the statistics I just provided for you.

          • C.O.Jones October 20, 2022 at 5:23 pm #

            So Green Alba, tell me again please, who needs to calm down? 🙂

          • Walter B October 20, 2022 at 6:07 pm #

            So, what do people do who have brain cancer that runs in their family?

          • GreenAlba October 20, 2022 at 6:33 pm #

            I’m perfectly calm, Mr Jones. I just say what I have to say and move on.

            Interesting that you didn’t bother to comment on the statistics.

            You seem to have calmed down, though, so that’s good. Perhaps we can call it a day.

          • GreenAlba October 20, 2022 at 6:40 pm #

            Walter

            Lopping things off isn’t a thing for every cancer in the world. For instance, I had a colleague whose family had multiple instances of fatal eye cancer. I don’t think anyone would think of removing an eye just in case they might get cancer.

            The BRCA mutations are a very particular case, in that about 86% of women (I don’t know anything about the situation in men) are likely to get breast cancer by age 50 if they have one of the mutations – I can’t remember which one.

            They are also at high risk from ovarian cancer and ovarian cancer is much harder to spot early enough to treat it. So people with a BRCA mutation tend to consider surgery for those two types of cancer. They are also at risk of other types of cancer, but while you can survive without ovaries and breasts, there are other organs that you just have to take your chances with, I guess. With the BRCA gene, it’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer that are the biggest risk, as far as I know.

        • Islander October 20, 2022 at 12:17 pm #

          Re “So, even if you were getting an annual check, ”

          An annual check is not aggressive monitoring.

          If I had this kind of gene I would get a monthly check.

          • GreenAlba October 20, 2022 at 3:18 pm #

            If you mean mammograms, islander, I expect 12 of those a year would not be without risk. With an aggressive cancer you wouldn’t want to wait until it was palpable – I’d have thought, anyway. But I’m not a medic or even a nurse. I suppose there is ultrasound.

            I was supposed to get 10 years of annual check-ups following my relatively minor breast cancer in 2019 and I declined the mammogram last year as I thought 10 of them was a lot, although I did go for the check up.

            However, as luck would have it, the NHS is collapsing, so by my second visit they’d reduced the follow-up to every 2 years and only for 5 years. I don’t expect to be around in 5 years, so I’m not that disappointed. It will only be a short time before they make the NHS App (currently being enhanced into a full digital ID) a gateway to the NHS (Sajid Javid’s own words, although not to the public), so it will be theoretical at that point, as I won’t be allowed in hospitals or medical premises at all. Ho hum …

        They don’t castrate the men anymore. The whole “trans” agenda is sexist beyond words, and no one seems to want to say that.

        It’s the girls who are butchered and mutilated, and even rendered sterile.

        • MaryQueen October 17, 2022 at 10:32 am #

          Correct, although I suppose that could change (rate of males being castrated).

          Then again, it depends on which pathology the male is suffering from. There is ‘transing away the gay,’ but then there is autogynophelia.

          The most recent stats I read were that 95% of trans-identified men do NOT remove their penises.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 11:01 am #

            People were countering the argument that “trans” wasn’t just men who liked to dress up and portray themselves as women (trannies), by pointing out that Iranian trannies did not want to have the surgery offered them by the government.

            The MSM started putting out misleading articles like this one, suggesting that “gays” were being forced to become women.

            SEXUAL ‘CLEANSING’ Iran is forcing thousands of gay people to have gender reassignment surgery against their will or face execution
            https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10998169/iran-gay-people-gender-reassignment-surgery/

            No they weren’t, as no one can know you are gay just by looking at you, if you do not go out of your way to appear so.

            What Iran does is offer “aid” to a man who thinks he was meant to be a woman. That the trannies did not want that “aid”, which is exactly the same thing the medical establishment was doing for the “trans” in this country, showed how bogus the whole “I was born in the wrong body” issue was. “Trans” women know damn well they are in the right body, because they want to keep their functional male parts.

            So, “they” changed the rules, and now we have to all agree that women can have male genetalia and men can become pregnant.

            Yes, Beryl, and here the process of turning gay males into ‘females’ we refer to as “transing away the gay,” and it’s a form of conversion therapy.

            The religious conversion therapy’s got nothin’ on the lefty trans agenda – whose conversions are permanent and horrific.

          They are castrating young men – sometimes even boys. I don’t get where you coming from. Even Mary – no friend of the male sex – has admitted this.

          Is this some feminist attempt to grab all the Victimization points and leave male victims out in the cold?

          Go to some detransition sites: There are many men who want their genitals back after being mutilated.

          • outsider October 17, 2022 at 2:50 pm #

            There are also many men who want their God-given natural penises back after being circumcised against their will as infants.

          • Suburban_elk October 17, 2022 at 3:02 pm #

            Thanks for bringing that up Outsider.

            Circumcision, which is a euphemism, by any honest reckoning is mutilation.

            and It’s of a piece with the trans agenda.

            120 MILLION baby boys in America and Canada, had their genitals disfigured, as neonates.

            It’s fair to say that a 14-year old should not be given to choice to radically alter their bodies, but it’s inarguable that they have more agency, than does a baby.

            All this horror at the trans agenda, and hardly a word about the 120 MILLION baby boys who were genitally reduced w/o their consent, is a glaring contradiction, and indicative of the double (triple?) standards that Americans have their children, and specifically their boys.

          • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 3:28 pm #

            Circumcision is a barbaric custom, for sure.
            I have been speaking out against it for years.

            Yes, teenagers are too young to make a life-altering decision about staying forever child-sized or mutilated, but babies don’t even get a choice.

            It should be outlawed.

            Anyway, two of our sons had medicalcircumcisions, for legitimate physical reasons. The first (and youngest) at age 3 and the oldest at 28 (to satisfy his wife!).

            I have seven younger brothers and aside from the two oldest (myself & next brother) all were circumcised – the difference between an old school GP in the late 50s and his younger successor, I believe.

            Comments appreciated and noted.

            Liberal Redneck — if ADULTS want to take off their body parts, that is entirely a different kettle of fish and NOT what is the topic, “the outrage.”

            As for “medical reasons” for cutting out the sensitive part of a boy’s genitals — here is a fact: most of the time, these medical reasons are over stated, and over sold, and the alteration of the genitals is not necessary.

            “medical reasons” was used as a justification for ALL the genital reductions, that were done on the 120 MILLION boys who suffered; “cleanliness” — remember that one?

            So “medical reasons” as a stated excuse, is dubious. And also the larger point of appealing to medical authority?? the 70s called dude, it wants its trust in the institutions back.

            As for ur relative getting his dick reduced, in order to satisfy his wife? What a clown. A better example of beclowning oneself, will not be found in this world.

            “You don’t like my equipment, honey? No problem, let me cut it out for you! (and don’t worry, they will give us a discount on the deductible if we sign the waiver to sell it to the pharmaceuticals for the face cream, the one that Oprah and Ellen like to use”

            that’s literally (literally) the state of manhood in America, and it goes to the more general complaints about “where are all the good men?”

            RL, I know you take contrary views to the tone of this board, on most political issues, but allying ur-self in favor of cutting out the genitals of neonates, is despicable, and every one with a clear ounce of conscience, knows it.

            This is our opponent, ladies and gentlemen. This is a “liberal redneck.”

          • Suburban_elk October 18, 2022 at 11:36 am #

            Also I would note, Redneck Liberal, that per your post, you were not genitally reduced. Consider yourself fortunate, man.

            Do you have the respect for your fellows, to allow that they might be aggrieved, for having been violated in such a gross way, to have their most sensitive and private parts crushed and torn off and literally (literally) thrown in the trash “w/o so much the courtesy of biowaste disposal protocol.”

            Is not the integrity of a baby’s physical body, to be respected?

            And to the larger point, this issue which you denigrate sarcastically as a fake outrage, is OF A PIECE, to the “trans agenda” which is violating the dignity of the human form, and those who would bring it to life.

            but hey, in America, “don’t complain because everyone’s doing it” — that’s how we got to this point, is people not standing up to the abuses and excesses of institutional power, and specifically, institutional medical authorities, who because they have fancy outfits..

            It’s a clear and direct connection to their abuses which continue thru to today.

          • Paula D October 18, 2022 at 11:54 am #

            Redneck, how much more evidence do you need that someone is evil than her demanding that her husband removed part of his penis?
            You want me to google around for more?

            As for you having no choice in your brothers’ mutilation, the point we are making is that THEY should have had the choice, not the ”younger” doctor, presumable more brainwashed into adding onto the medical bill even back then. As Suburban points out, there is no medical reason to routinely remove newborn boy’s penis tips, and there are known horrific consequences. But the doctors get to add a nice chunk of change to their bill.

            The rot runs deep.

          • Redneck Liberal October 20, 2022 at 9:46 pm #

            Well, that perspective got a few danders up, huh?

            Sub Elk, Paula et al – we are talking about circumcision, not castration for fuck’s sake.

            My experience (in NOT having the snip) was in the late 1950s, and the rest of my brothers in the 1960s (’60 to ’69). Whoever was talking about the doctor doing it to fatten his fee is a dimwit – New Zealand has a free health system – there are no bills to fatten and birth & perinatal care pays a flat fee to the hospital, midwife & doctor involved, so just for once, leave the ‘greed’ out of what is already a flimsy argument.

            Cultural norms change over time, yet here you all are judging from 2022 what happened in the 1960s.

        • Suburban_elk October 17, 2022 at 2:45 pm #

          The whole “trans” agenda is sexist beyond words, and no one seems to want to say that.

          It’s the girls who are butchered and mutilated

          This assertion here is that there are no boys who are mutilated by the trans agenda.

          This is patently false; not to mention an outrageous assertion.

          How many boys versus how many girls, have had their genitals mutilated, by the trans agenda? Those numbers should not be too hard to find, one would hope.

          • Suburban_elk October 17, 2022 at 2:54 pm #

            W/o full-on full on effort posting on the question, of how many boys and how many girls, have had their genitals mutilated by the trans agenda, it should be kept in mind that the sexual development of a child is, in all likelihood, permanently altered and impaired, by a course of hormone treatment, aka puberty blockers.

            IOW these unfortunate young boys who undergo this, will NEVER become the men that they might have.

            Whether or not that counts as “mutilation” which has a particular meaning, is its own question.

            But isn’t it true, that courtesy of the trans agenda, more boys than girls, are being given puberty blockers?

          • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 3:34 pm #

            Yes, Surburan Elk, the puberty blockers are another form of mutilation, since the penis remains child-sized forever, unless the boy has it cut off when he turns 18.

            The claim is that no boys are castrated before age 18 and that may be broadly true. But again, stopping normal growth and maturation is another form of mutilation, imo.

            They are cutting off the breasts of girls as young as 13 y.o.

            I think the hysterectomies come later.

            We know that puberty blockers stop the development of the secondary sex organs, but we also know that they have effects on the bones and brains of the recipients, and in the case of girls, the ovaries and uterus, which is why they end up with hysterectomies around 20.

            The entire agenda is so diabolical it boggles the mind that it would be allowed, let alone pushed so heavily.

          • MaryQueen October 17, 2022 at 5:28 pm #

            Well, there are way less boys being forced into becoming girls than there are girls trying to become boys.

            The reasons are different.

            It all sucks. The number of girls trying to become male increased 4000% in recent years. That’s an epidemic.

            Still, both are horrific. The grossest case in the male-to-female column I’m seen is the Jazz Jennings fiasco. That one makes me sick to my stomach. Poor young boy was turned into a tranny star. His mom admittedly sexually abuses (rapes) him. He ballooned up & gained 100 lbs in one year, so messed up on hormones and with body dismorphia, etc. What a train wreck.

            Yet, it’s still being hailed as a ‘success’ for the trans agenda. Mind-boggling stuff.

            I can assure you that anyone who is fighting this trans agenda, whether it’s women, men, feminists, conservatives, etc. are all just as against the transing of boys as they are girls.

          • MaryQueen October 17, 2022 at 5:30 pm #

            Also, the puberty blocker hormones I have read are the same things they use to chemically castrate men. But I am not 100% sure on that, because I haven’t fully vetted it.

            Imagine that, giving boys chemical castration drugs.

            Yes, the healthy body continues to mature well into the twenties (that is an average, of course). Not just height is relevant, but also muscle growth and other factors.

            Not to mention, the brains! Seriously, it takes a few years to recover from the confusions and physical stresses of puberty. Adolescents are famous for thinking they “know everything.” Later they grow up and realize how limited adolescent thinking actually is.

          These are the same people actually. My new new working theory, reinforced by the goings on in Ukraine over the last couple of decades, is that the Nazis never really went away, they just dispersed and went underground for a while to regroup – Operation Paperclip being the most obvious example, and now are reemerging in their true (Satanic) form. One might marvel at how similar the behavior of the modern institutional psychopath is to the Nazi, but it makes perfect sense if they actually ARE Nazis. Ditto for the Department X bunch you mentioned, same people again.

        • MrMangoOnMyShoulder October 18, 2022 at 1:59 pm #

          Wow, quite the discussion on circumcision here!

          For those that didn’t have one or haven’t known someone (in the – ahem – familiar sense) that has…it is not sexual mutilation. Sexual mutilation is removing something, or taking away the chance of future sensation for inhumane purposes.

          It’s one tiny snip, the original skin remains there. Just a cleaner look, like parting ones hair, or trimming ones beard. A choice that some parents make, because, well, they’re used to it.

          A tonsilectomy is far more traumatic (though you do get ice cream after that one, so there’s that…).

          The “unit” still does what it’s supposed to do, and feels mighty fine while doing so.

          Hey – I’ve seen some pretty messed-up belly buttons…should that O.B. doc be accused of mutilation for giving someone a bloated outie or a twisted innie while tying up the job?

          Anyway, there are much worse things to worry about in the world than a modern Western penis.

          Now…getting one at 28? I’ll pass.

          • Paula D October 19, 2022 at 2:31 pm #

            You are mistaken, Mango.
            The skin does not remain, it is removed.

            It is not painless like cutting hair. It is slicing off a piece of skin with multiple nerve endings that are exquisitely sensitive.
            Yes, the remaining part of the penis still has sensation, but it is crass to pretend that removing so many nerve endings has no effect on the ability to feel mighty fine.

            Plus, removing the hood of the penis exposes, toughens, and dries out the head, which is meant to stay protected and lubricated. This obviously has an effect on future sexual activity.

            Funny that you mention tonsillectomy. There was quite a scandal back in the 60s (I think) when it was revealed that pediatricians were forced by their group practices to recommend tonsillectomy for profit. The practice was stopped and there are no longer routine tonsillectomies for American children.

            The profit motive is the same with circumcision, except that the newborn baby is not anesthetized for the surgery.

            Belly buttons are not fashioned by the doctors. The umbilical cord dries up and falls off naturally.
            Surely you knew this?

            But you are correct, Paula, some skin is technically removed.

            The majority just falls to the sides after being snipped up top and heal up just fine.

            I was just pointing out that it is of extremely little concern in the grand scheme.

            If there are nerve endings I’m missing out on, I wouldn’t know. Nor do I have any complaints.

        We ought to call it the “Western Inquisition” because its’ tentacles have spread to every country, including my own Canada. In a weird case of politics making the strangest of bedfellows, the powerful right-wing Ukrainian Canadian Congress has joined with Canada’s governing left to censor, cancel and defame any citizen who dares question our nation’s support for the Zelensky regime. Canadians who openly support a peaceful resolution to the conflict are written off as modern-day Neville Chamberlains and accused of a plethora of crimes against the motherland, including collaboration with Vladimir Putin, using social media to spread disinformation and promoting anti-Semitism because, according to the thought police, Zelensky has a Jewish background and can’t be branded a fascist. I sincerely hope that the conflict in Ukraine doesn’t escalate into nuclear conflict, but every indication from Western leaders and their media lackeys demonstrate that they won’t be happy until Russia finally loses their patience with us and lobs nuclear bombs at Western capitals.

      A quack Turkish national posing as a MAGA candidate, and the cultists are telling me this is not a hill to die on, we “need” Oz.

      • JohnAZ October 17, 2022 at 11:04 am #

        Hmmm. Logic spoken here.

        Vote for the guy who is going to vote with Biden 100%.

        Pro abortion as birth control

        Tax, tax, tax.

        Spend, spend, spend.

        Let the crud out of jail.

        Pro drugs.

        Open border.

        Shows up 40% of the time for his job.

        Cannot understand what he hears, not really a problem as he will vote yea on any Biden, Schumer item.

        Why do people vote against folks for one item when forty items they are against the electee stands for 100%.

        Why did so many RINOs vote against Trump when the result is the total idiocy we have in DC right now? Unbelievable to me.

        It is amazing to me that with the country and the world falling of a cliff right now, people’s votes say

        Give me more, more of the same, I love having my economic and social system destroyed.

        Again, unbelievable.

        Items for. 42. Items against 1.

        Vote against!! Hmmmmm?

        • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 11:50 am #

          If you are for the sickest part of the globalist agenda, are you really against any of it?

          What GOOD is a sick-in-the-head quack to MAGA?

          Oz was the ONLY POSSIBLE pick?

          He’s not even a real American.

          Are their degrees of evil, once you cross that line?

          • stelmosfire October 17, 2022 at 12:17 pm #

            Not even a real American? He was born in Cleveland. His parents have been here since the fifties. I’m first generation American also. I also have several friends with dual American- Irish citizenship. Are they American?

          • JohnAZ October 17, 2022 at 12:20 pm #

            Yes, most of his belief system is conservative, that is what needs to be voted for. Voting for Fetterman is sending yet another socialist to DC. If you want to rubber stamp the DNC, so be it.

            Arguing that OZ is not an American is senseless. He is the candidate.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 1:49 pm #

            I’m not sure I want someone with dual loyalties in a high national office. Look at Vindman.

            Would we want a president with dual citizenship?

            Doctor Oz’ strong ties to Oprah are worse than his ties to Turkey.

            He’s a garbage candidate, and Trump is listening to the wrong people once again.

          • Redneck Liberal October 17, 2022 at 7:07 pm #

            SF – are you also a citizen of Turkey, like Mehmet Oz? Is that even allowed? He certainly couldn’t be a Turkish citizen and run for the Presidency, so why can he run for the Seate?

          • Bilejones October 17, 2022 at 7:17 pm #

            It’s voting against not for. Control of the Senate helps protect the Supreme Court from Biden.
            The Court, as you know damn well, is far more important than having to put up with one more dipshit Rino.

        • Wizard of the Saddle October 17, 2022 at 1:47 pm #

          The answer is simple: Mob Democracy never works because a working majority of the populace is intellectually lazy, impaired, deranged, apathetic or just wholly disinterested in doing their civic duty to ensure good government.

          The Founders understood this well – which is why the voting franchise was severely restricted at the time of the adoption of the constitution.

          Gradually, over time, the voting franchise has been expanded repeatedly until now we are at the point where ANY moron who can fog a mirror is guaranteed the right to vote.

          So, an illiterate, indigent, dope smoking, mentally deficient, deviant of questionable citizenship can now march to the polls every Election Day and cancel my vote if sufficient incentives (bribes) are offered – usually in the form of promised “freebies” from the U.S. Treasury at the taxpayer’s expense!

      It is clear that the American government has been stealing our freedoms and taking power onto themselves that are NOT granted by the ruling documents of this nation. It started downhill with President Dick Cheney and his patsy George with the un-Patriot Act and the never-ending war on terrified Americans. Obama made it worse and perpetrated crimes against us all with crap like Fast & Furious and the strengthening of the un-Patriot Act.

      Donals Trump spent most of his time trying not to get assassinated or thrown out of office so the downhill slide may have been slowed, I cannot say for sure, but this brain-dead pedophile and his masters have pulled all the stops out and are going for broke.

      The law no long exists for those who hold political power with the sellout in the sunglasses with Uzi’s protect them, and we people that do not buy into the narrative of the collective are demonized. How long before we are rounded up and “re-educated”?

      Heck even Paypal has been weaponized in changing their terms to allow them to penalize people who “spread disinformation’ up to $2,500. Whoda thunk it could get this bad? Well guess what, it’s gonna get a LOT worse, and soon.

        It is disconcerting watching the polls drift left with the country heading the direction it is. The media right now is deriding the Fed trying to control inflation, cherry picking data saying there is no inflation.

        Are people just stupid, not making the connection between inflation and the Dem. Dogma that causes it.

        Or has Franklin’s fear come true and the gimmes do not give a damn about liberty and independence any more?

        ThiS IS NOT my father’s America any more, it is getting closer and closer to the autocratic states they fought against in WW2,

          To JohnAZ

          That “autocratic ideal of the USSR you fought against” actually provided it’s citizen with free health care, free education, including university level, free accomodation (apartments were not flash, being mass build but had all the mod cons), there was NO unemployment and hardly any crime. People in the West were indoctrinated to see ONLY the oppressive side, which was present as well but not to the absolutely black, horrible levels painted for western minds. One always needs to be objective and informed.
          In the 90s Russia there was a great nostalgia for the soviet times, as life during those terrible 90s became a survival for many. Those were the years when Russia was pillaged and looted by the West..

            I’m no apologist for the materialist, looting West, including its role in helping the Bolsheviks come to power in Russia. (See Antony Sutton’s “Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution.”)

            But your description of the Soviet materialist utopia that replaced Orthodox Russia leaves out the large-scale “free” blood-letting that also took place for decades.

            During their 70-year reign, the Soviets destroyed or repurposed tens of thousands of Orthodox Christian churches, convents, and monasteries, and killed thousands of clergy (bishops, priests, nuns, and monks), in addition to brutally killing millions of ordinary citizens.

            Don’t tell me that part of the story is Western propaganda.

          • MaryQueen October 19, 2022 at 7:44 pm #

            You have pretty much summed it up. “Collective West” is the one that is also trying to “weaken Russia” by any means possible – according to your “leadership” goal. Here I will give you a description of Pax Americana as defined by Dmitry Orlov. (Exceptional Russian born analyst, who lived and worked for decades in USA and with whom JHK had done a podcast not that long ago. You can click on that above and have a listen. Well worth it).
            ..”Pax Americana” is a globalist parasitic regime that attempts to extract wealth from the rest of the world through the imposition of a transnational financial oligarchy backed by a system of worldwide military bases and an expeditionary force that exacts obedience through financial oppression and military violence”..
            That describes ‘West” absolutely – in a nutshell, as they say.

          • Katerina October 18, 2022 at 9:24 pm #

            To Fireside Chats

            Russian Orthodox Church destruction was carried out by so-called “Bolsheviks”, most of them being Jews and hating it. Also hating Russians for well known historical reasons – they were expelled from Russia some centuries back, from an enclave known as Khazaria, as they were making live a living hell for their Russian neighbours.
            (Not much has changed with them since these times – just ask the Palestinians!)
            So-called “Russian Revolution” was their revenge on Russia. Something that seems very difficult for western minds to grasp and fully understand, after decades of brainwashing.
            You, like most people in the West, conflate that period with the rest of the Soviet Union existence. Under Stalin, in Russia at the time, what was carried out is a much needed “clearing of the swamp” as those creatures had infested EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE, much as they have now done in USA. He wasn’t “killing millions of ordinary citizens” – yes, absolutely another BS propaganda, he was going after THEM, the Zhidovski Cabal. He was eliminating them and their followers, in droves, hence the hysterical demonization of the man in the West; but of course. In Russia he is a hero. USA now desperately needs their own Stalin as it has also been totally and completely taken over by them and now is being systematically destroyed. These creatures have loyalty to no-one, except to Talmud and Mamon. Greed for money, power and control is all that matters. You people are screwed if you continue to do nothing. I think that you really need to fully concentrate on your own enormous problems rather than dragging over whan Russia had to go through in it’s historical past. Most of that “knowledge” is lies and garbage.
            If you don’t fight them you are done. Understand? And as I have said before, my advice to americans would be to ask for help the only other country that had such destructive expierence with this ghastly, foul lot and that is… RUSSIA.
            Another advice to you people – self-reflection is never easy, but is good for the soul. Practice that sometimes.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 11:56 am #

        It did start with the Republicans. Now we are supposed to vote for them to save the country, as if it is the D affiliation that is suddenly the problem.

        Remember how we voted R in the midterms, to stop Obamacare? I did too, although I was telling anyone who would listen that voting R was not going to make a difference, and it did not.

      Penelope, We not only haven’t answered this question, we haven’t even asked it. Is it acceptable for a doctor to remove healthy body parts because a patient asks for it? I want to hear these bastards answer that question. If they answer yes, there’s no logical reason why it should be acceptable to remove some unwanted body parts and block the removal of others. What if someone can’t bear the idea of being able to see, and wants a doctor to remove their eyes? What if someone doesn’t want hands or believes that they were born with someone else’s hands, in one of those fundamental errors that, apparently, Nature (in her confusion) is constantly making?

      I want to hear them say in public: yes, doctors should be empowered to remove any body part that any given person does not want. Because this is really what the “affirming” and “health care” and other weasel words comes down to, and I want to hear them say it. Incidentally, it used to be understood that threatening suicide if you didn’t get your way was, in itself, evidence of mental illness.

      Particularly relevant for me this morning, as I’ve read Dr. Nass’s blog in the past and been profoundly disgusted at the outright persecution she’s been subjected to. We’re doing this to the best of us, and I doubt there are a hundred other people in Maine who know what has happened to her.

      But they do know that Janet Mills is just another one of “them”. The traitors in Portland managed to get her elected, but the rest of the state is longing for the return of LePage, who was subjected to the same treatment by the press as Donald Trump.

    • SW October 17, 2022 at 11:42 am #

      Great post and a story I’d never heard but needs to be heard by every adult. I live far from Maine and it won’t ever be seen on MSM. If she had folded like a cheap tent it would have been touted as “another doctor is prosecuted for spreading disinformation and dangerous treatments! Details at 6.”

      Dr. Nass fortunately has the ability to sue and most doctors do not. They are well-educated, fully captured wage slaves for the administration and don’t dare cross them. If even 10% would stand up to this abuse of power, I think the tide would turn — especially if it were covered in the media. What are the chances? Slim.

    Hope it turns out well for Nass, but somehow I suspect it won’t. Legal outcomes being secondary to maintaining the official narrative these days. If we all have to wait for the legal wheels to turn to stop this madness then we’ll all due waiting. Go Russia!

    • Rowdypiglet October 17, 2022 at 11:51 am #

      In a court of law, it’s sometimes possible to still prevail if the chicanery becomes sufficiently transparent. I have some hope Dr. Nass may receive justice and/or a very large sum of money; it does occasionally happen.

      I know we’ve often said and thought that certain revelations were going to unravel this whole mess and bring down those who have caused it. It hasn’t happened. But I do believe that there’s such a thing as critical mass, and clearly we haven’t reached it yet. When we do, a line will be drawn between the past we’ve known and an uncertain future where nothing will be the same. But there’s no doubt in my mind that some forms of societal sickness will quickly disappear.

      I’m an optimist by nature, so I think some of the things we lose will be well lost. Right now, we’re seeing two things: the survival, for the time being at least, of those who were disobedient and refused the vax – and the elimination from the gene pool of the weakest and least fit to raise children. Is anyone really sorry that the pitiful creature displaying her uterus in a jar will never be anyone’s mother?

      Remember that vaccines give you a mini version of the disease to instruct your immune system. Sometimes the immune response is equal to the disease itself.

        Without bothering to look for it (2A) I recall it was what I found quite lacking, thus echoing ‘nonstarter’ when she first emerged on the public stage.

        Haven’t heard or read anything where she has changed this stance.

        It’s not a litmus test, it’s a test regarding upholding the Constitution.

        I haven’t heard or read anything where she commented on the violation of 4th Amendment rights at the hospital located a significant distance from where the alleged shooter in the recent Raleigh, NC incident was barricaded.

        The Raleigh PD was frisking and searching people with metal detectors at a hospital not located near the crime scene. Clear 4A violation.

        This is also not a litmus test, it is a test regarding upholding the Constitution.

        • U R IntheVillage October 17, 2022 at 1:44 pm #

          IQ test for Kamala. That would be funny. We’d need to see a raw score though, no equity multipliers or offsets.

          I’d like to see the following for all candidates for office and all office-holders:

          1. IQ test score

          2. As long as employers can legally require drug tests for applicants and employees, all political candidates must undergo drug testing with results made public. People in office must have one every quarter and at random. Same for judges, FBI officials, and cabinet secretaries. (If this were enacted, watch a law be passed immediately that prohibits employer drug testing.)

          3. All academic transcripts and SAT, LSAT, etc scores must be on public record for every politician.

          Wouldn’t the results be interesting.

          • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 3:43 pm #

            Employers shouldn’t be allowed to force people to squat and pee on their command.

            That was one of the first indignities to which people were forced to submit. It’s a slippery slope.

            Extending it is going the wrong way.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 4:33 pm #

            Paula, you can fail one of those tests, even if you have never touched an illegal drug in your entire life. Then what recourse do you have?

            I remember when this started to become a popular thing, discussing the issue with someone who was in favor of it.

            I argued that if an emplyee had a bad enough drug habit that it was affecting his work, you could fire him for poor performance, but if he was a raging coke head and still getting the job done, why would you want to lose him?

          • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 7:36 pm #

            Ha, ha, that’s right.

            I had one friend who was drug tested to work at WalMart.
            He said, “If I can’t stock shelves while high I don’t think they should want me anyway.”

          • Anthea October 17, 2022 at 10:08 pm #

            My thoughts on the drug testing for employment is that few employers really care if an employee tests positive. If you’ve ever worked where there are a lot of younger people, you will have noticed that they all cram into someone’s car and smoke pot during the lunch hour, or gather around at the back of the store for breaks. The restroom may often smell of pot. Supervisors and business owners know this–and clearly don’t really care.

            I think what drug testing is really for is those cases when you want to fire someone and don’t want to go to the trouble to document the real reason: they just failed the drug test. This also probably gets the employer off the hook when it comes to unemployment compensation. If the employee files for unemployment, you can simply provide a copy of the failed drug test, rather than produce a lot of written documentation of poor work habits. Maybe you rather not make a written allegation that the employee is a thief–which might invite a lawsuit.

            From the amount of drug use I’ve seen in the workplace, my guess is that failed drug tests are rarely used to fire anyone; the employer ignores them unless he wants to fire someone.

          • Not_GeorgeT October 18, 2022 at 1:26 pm #

            Drug testing:

            Paula agree, don’t feed it

            Beryl agree , easy to fail one for no reason.

            IntheVillage, imo there would be rampant false results both + and – depending on the target . No trust. Maybe you have more faith than I at this point.

            Example of fail for no legit reason: NCAA D1 players are given a list of foods etc to avoid because they mimic forbidden drugs in the NCAA world

      She’s one of Schwab’s promising young WEF toadies that he crowed about having “inserted” into governments all over the world. She’s potentially more dangerous than most, because she can very effectively imitate a reasonable, thoughtful person (unlike Jacinda Ardern).

      If she has had some sort of realization and decided to separate herself from her mentors, she should publicly repudiate the WEF and its goals. It’s questionable whether I’d believe her (probably not) but I’d adopt a wait and see attitude. Many of us who comment here were once on the opposite side of the fence, so I don’t discount the possibility of someone having a change of heart. But I’d have to see plenty of proof, and a public commitment to second amendment rights.

    Here’s the thing: practicing medicine is hard. Similarly, practicing science is hard. It is much easier to climb the ladder, make the bucks, and accrue the power if you concentrate on practicing politics.

    Of course when the rubber meets reality, the results of decades of this nonsense show.

    For more on the matter, search for the now decade-old John Michael Greer essay “The Suicide of Science.” (I’d post a link, but you know…) It’s also expanded and reprinted in his book “Dark Age America.” And yes, we are definitely headed towards a new dark age if this sort of inquisition keeps on rolling, silencing well-done research.

      Medical care is a business now, pure and simple and no exceptions to making money for the stockholders.

      But what isn’t a racket in the US now? Education is an expensive joke — insurance is mandatory if you own a car or have a home mortgage and the rates can be raised anytime — weapons manufacturers run the Pentagon — stocks and bonds are backed by massive debt, not assets — well, it’s a long list and no secret anyhow.

      • Dr. Coyote October 17, 2022 at 1:09 pm #

        I do want to point out here, SW, that there is a difference between an ethical business and a racket.

        Yes indeed and as you just now and JHK often have said, medicine and education have become rackets. That is, money extraction schemes. They can, and once did, have their legitimate business sides, which served to support their stated functions. SW, I think we agree that that time is largely passed. It’s going to be a long way out of this trap.

        • SW October 17, 2022 at 2:45 pm #

          The last hospital I worked at, the administrators got a bonus by keeping costs down (not unusual) but since the biggest cost was wages, what ended up happening was direct staff was cut to the barest minimum. Who really ended up paying? The patients of course who had no idea there should have been twice as many nurses and techs.

          In the late 90s I saw a huge change when HCA took over our hospital. It went from being primarily a hospital to an extraction scheme aimed at insurance companies. But they caught on and passed costs on to the patients with much higher deductibles and copays.

          • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 4:35 pm #

    TPTB are trying to run the country into the ditch in order to implement CBDC. If citizens allow this, they will be on their knees forever because TPTB will control each citizen’s money and whether or not they get or have any. Citizens will not question or push back against any government decision for fear of not getting paid, or having savings taken away. It will be checkmate for the vast majority of humanity.

    Two weeks after Pfizer CEO bailed on EU testimony in the wake of a report highlighting a ‘secretive’ vaccine deal between himself and European Commission President Ursula ‘missing texts’ von der Leyen, the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) has opened an investigation into the EU’s Covid-19 vaccine purchases, Politico reports.”

      My prediction: nothing will happen. Since when has any EU bureaucrat been held accountable for anything?

      • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 7:08 am #

        The only one that was ‘held accountable’ was David Sassoli, head of the EU parliament, who died early on in the vaxx rollout of ‘complications due to problems with his immune system’. That was before they started reporting sudden deaths as people just ‘passing away’, even if they were 15 years of age.

        I doubt anyone will be held accountable for anything much (although I do hope Dr Nass will get some satisfaction from suing her malicious colleagues) unless people wake up and get to the hanging-people-from-lamp-posts stage. They top nobs won’t be around for that – they’ll get a few doctors, nurses and journalists, probably. Although I have my doubts about many Brits doing anything at all, even when they find out what’s gone on.

        John O’Looney (the whistleblower funeral director) said that when he went with scientists and doctors – including Mike Yeadon and Tess Lawrie – to speak to Sir Graham Brady (head of the 1922 Committee) Brady clearly knew what was going on. When he was warned that people would rise up when they found out, Brady said the government was ready for that – in fact they were amazed it hadn’t happened already. That must be over a year ago.

        According to an interview I heard the other day, John O’Looney reckons Brady – who said he’d do what he could but did nothing – probably isn’t even an instigator, but just some high-up character who will watch the way the wind blows and play the game accordingly. A bit like our mitchellc, really.

      But an anonymous doctor wrote to Steve Kirsch and said that he had prescribed Ivermectin to a patient (fully vaccinated) and the authorities came down hard on him.

    While our long running Covid Theater has historic analogies to the conflicts of Roman Catholicism with Renaissance Europe, it is important to recall Roman Catholicism remains with us today.

    When an Establishment is “all in” it is unlikely to find a “judge” who is not.

            Why sugget that I would want life without meaning? Life is described as how I observe it. I see babies with crooked backs, why would I not recognize, or even want that?

            Some people,, might be psychologically, intellectually, or otherwise unable to suspend belief in the secular and find faith. I do not think that that is a negative. Who would not embrace something that brings Joy, or at least relief from the howling Universe? From the Worm? I just cannot generate the level of trust to accept unquestioned faith. You can, and I applaud you for it. You may be a better person for it.

            You might suggest that those that cannot accept faith are somehow bent…incomplete. I can accept that as an argument.

            I don’t believe in eternal hell and that puts me well outside the Christian mainstream, or what used to be the mainstream. Many Christians today don’t even believe in hell or much of anything anymore.

            My problem with you is your blasphemy. Calling Christ a pedophile in unacceptable. But I wouldn’t want you to burn forever because of it. Just for a long time or until you repented.

            Jarek,
            Well, the post in question was an example of how reciting scripture in a discussion or argument can be subverted. I am fully aware of the accepted meanings of the words “suffer” and “touching”. It was an example of how religious “leaders” sometimes twist scripture to their needs.

            Do I believe the out of context outrage as presented? No

            Do I believe the text in it’s original was the literal word of God? No

            Do I believe the Bible, Koran, Torah, and that ridiculous Indian text good morality plays? Yes.

            Do I believe your motivation towards outrage in this issue honest and accurate? Who; knows…?

          • Jarek October 18, 2022 at 7:56 pm #

      All the insanity of the far left is really playing out in states like Colorado and in Oregon. To the point that nine counties in Eastern Oregon for pushing to leave the state to join Idaho.

      And they are threatening to leave forcibly if the governor of Oregon does not let them leave peaceably. The governor of Idaho says they will welcome them either peaceably or, if they leave by force.

      I listened to TIM pools broadcast this morning on YouTube and I forget the congressman‘s name that is on his show early this morning, pertaining to this, RED-HOT-ISSUE.

      The name of the video on YouTube by Tim is this and this is how you look it up.

      “EASTERN OREGON COUNTIES FORCE VOTE TO SECEDE FROM THE STATE.”

      If you listen to the video you will hear everything that they are prepared to do starting out easy to leave and then ramping up if the governor tries to stop them. They’ve already took a 9 Count vote, and not one person voted against it.

      Every mayor in every town in every county is for it. Every Sheriff Of every county is for this, so is the cities that have a city police Dept. The Chief of Police in 31 cities voted for it and so did each, entire City Police Dept Members / Sheriff Dept Members all voted for it.

      They listed the ways that these Counties will start out which they’ve already passed the one hurdle of the Counties holding their own vote to leave and, join Idaho.

      If the government of Oregon does not let them leave they will start out first in the court system with expedited hearings. The people that live in these counties are all prepared to stop, paying taxes just as soon as they are given the word from their leaders of their County.

      These people are not fucking around. Unlike some of the other people in other locales, they are not fucking around they’ve had enough. Yes there has been other movements in some years past like in northern California and in 7 Western Counties inside, the State of Colorado, that have been wanting to leave and join Wyoming.

      But in years past they were not facing issues like today and that is state and county officials screwing with people’s kids. Like they are today. I won’t go into listing all the ways that this is happening because I know the readers of Howard Kunstler, are not stupid.

      They keep up with what’s going on. They are well familiar with the, CRT And with another issue, and that is with white people being forced to bend the knee to every issue that the most degenerate / disgusting / evil / most dangerous race in our Nation.

      The disgusting black race. And they fit the bill to everything that I just listed and you that read my comment, you know they do!! You know they do.

      But anyway, we are facing issues today, along with, defunding police departments and with no cash bail which means that I’m nutshell it does no good to arrest anybody pertaining to many various crimes because they’re just going to get released as soon as you arrest them!! There is an entire list that Tim ran down / verbally ticked off in his show. And this congressman talked about the different ways that they can leave the state of Oregon.

      It’s not red state versus blue state. It’s big city versus 90% of the rest of the state. The reason for the electoral college was to prevent this kind of abuse on a national level. They couldn’t foresee cities becoming so big it would cause such an imbalance on a state level.

      There was no way they could foresee this. This is exactly why I’m not the only one thinking that we need to start using the electoral college or one like it within the states.

      Folks inside our “Rural Counties”, shouldn’t Be forced to live their lives by the way these insane idiots are forcing them to live by their big city evil tyrannical Ways.

        To tell you the truth, I have always voted, even though I remember reading in the Reader’s Digest as a child, “I don’t vote. It only encourages them”, and then hearing a PSA by Henry Kissinger
        “Ve don’t care who you vote for, ve only care that you vote”.

        OK, they clearly want us to vote. The propaganda is much like the clot shot propaganda. “Do it!”

      I’m not getting anymore injections, I haven’t voted in over 50 years, but I do use credit cards. I haven’t paid any interest on them for years because I fully pay my bill every month. If the cash in my checking account is running low, I just hold back on my spending until my cash builds up.

      The biggest issue for people with credit cards is that many people use them as a substitute for cash when they have none. CC interest is very high, and once their account balance builds, they become debt slaves to the bank. It’s not that I’m so smart, but I know enough not to fall into a debt trap. I’m very lucky to have earned enough to pay my way. I feel badly for people who have no choice but to go into debt. Generally speaking, I try to spend my money wisely and eat wisely. No tobacco, very little alcohol and no recreational drugs for me. I can have an enjoyable life without them.

          I just got back from the bank where I had to cancel my debit card and get a new one. My card was stolen twice in six weeks and I never use it for online purchases, only locally for gas and groceries. But from now on, only cash.

          One of the worst things to happen to our country was credit cards. And guess where most of these businesses were set up? Delaware, home to our very own President. Without cc’s this frenzy of spending couldn’t have happened. I’ve never seen a graph or anything showing the accelerated spending in the last 30 years but I don’t doubt it looks like a hockey stick. They’re just too easy to use.

          About 15 years ago I saw an interview with a middle-aged woman whose son had committed suicide at the end of his freshman year. He was a National Merit Scholar and was making good grades, met a girl, no one suspected anything was wrong. When she dropped him off at the university, she remembered tables set up by cc companies signing up kids. She found out he had gotten several cc’s, hit the max and panicked how he would pay and was ashamed to tell his parents. When she tried to get the administrators to stop this practice, she was ignored.

          I know most kids don’t commit suicide over debt but what is happening is conditioning them to use cc’s and overspend.

            “Hunter Biden got a five-year gig starting in 2001 worth at least half a million dollars with credit card company MBNA Corporation when his-then U.S. senator father, Joe, was pushing for passage of bankruptcy legislation that ended up benefiting his son’s employer.

            After it became law in 2005, the year that Hunter’s work for MBNA ended, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act made it difficult for Americans to get rid of credit card and student aid debt when declaring bankruptcy.

            The bill pushed by now Democrat presidential nominee Biden ultimately helped the MBNA Corporation, one of the largest members of the credit card industry at the time, and reportedly helped fuel the student debt problem. It made private student loans one of the ten debts that cannot be forgiven during bankruptcy.”

        The credit card companies keep sending me offers to get $200 cash back and 0% APR for a year or two, if I open and account. (The fact that it’s only $200 probably speaks poorly of my credit rating. My daughters have gotten offers for more.) I’ll be getting $200 back in about a month, and have another such offer in hand. If they want to keep giving me free money, it’s okay with me.

        • SW October 17, 2022 at 6:35 pm #

          The Bidens have an ugly history with the cc companies that has been swept under the carpet. Both Hilary and Joe voted for the punishing bankruptcy act that made it more difficult for ordinary people to file for protection.

          The cc companies, student loans, “no payment for two years!” and the rest of the scams have created debt peonage for a chunk of US citizens. Yes, they should have been smarter and now it’s a big problem. But maybe we shouldn’t be sending billions to Ukraine to fight a senseless war and instead taking a look at what’s happening to the citizens right here.

    What many people don’t understand is that modern ‘health care’ is based on a model that was funded and perpetuated (and still is) by the criminal Rockefeller Foundation. It started in the 1930’s and was focused on an alliance between the health care facilities and big pharma (including makers of surgical ‘kits’ and materials). There was a purge in medical schools of all ‘disallowed’ methods and ideas, including electrotherapy (currently making a comeback attempt), non pharma remedies (herbal medicines), and manipulation treatments (the AMA and Liason Committee regularly evaluates and insures compliance). Additionally, the structure was that of ‘military’ with ranks up and down, the attendings ‘supervising’ (e.g. brainwashing) senior residents, who supervised junior residents who supervised med students when the latter were doing hospital rotations. A ‘NAZI’ model characterized by an obsession with regimentarianism and authoritarian behavior evolved. Bright and inquisitive MDs are discouraged from questioning many issues (esp big pharma products such as statin drugs and mRNA vaccines) but can question things about a given patient case. I have seen this first hand in my medical career of 35 years as an attending at a major academic medical center, a consulting physician at several regional MCs, and as a fellow, resident and student many years ago. This model has produced a system where about 3/4ths of physicians are merely arrogant drones/technicians who, now, follow orders from the MBAs who now run ‘big health care’ (i.e. hospital systems). When they were told the mRNA experimental gene therapies were ‘safe and effective’ they simply conveyed that ostensible ‘fact’ to their patients, like good NAZIs they followed orders. Hopefully the modern NAZIs will get to experience Nuremberg II; perhaps that will shake younger physicians out of their brainwashed trance.

    • Jarek October 17, 2022 at 12:04 pm #

      Nazis! Like the ones in Ukraine – the ones who serve Global Finance.

      Unlike the ones in old Germany – the real ones who threw the bankers out and precipitated an economic renaissance.

      As Confucius said, the first step in reform is “Rectification of Names”. Words must be returned to their real meanings or be given real meanings if the former is impractical.

      Most people are eating Chinese food at a restaurant called “Luigi’s”, commenting on what great Italian it is.

      Luigi died and his son sold it to a Chinese guy who was smart enough to keep the name. All the old servers and cooks are gone and he didn’t try to keep it Italian. Why bother? Name loyalty is enough for the stupid dog eyes and baizuo.

    • JohnAZ October 17, 2022 at 12:45 pm #

      Primary care MDs used to be who you saw to fix 90% of your problems.

      The increase of technology has made it so that specialization is required has turned primary care into a switchboard putting patients with specialists. The degradation of the primary care MD, Hospitalist too, is so gross that NPs and Med assists are taking over the function.

      Primary Care is now being bought up by hospital corporations or even primary care corporations. The final product will be a instance controlled primary care level medical system that controls both entry points to the medical community, the Primary Care MD and the ER. Just as Neurodoc just described.

      All these supposed cost savings? The Medicos still lead the inflationary categories.

      I almost lost my kidneys to statins. I disobeyed my doctor and stopped taking them. He dropped me. I been a nurse for several years, but before that, I worked on aircraft and worked in heavy industry. I started to troubleshoot the problem. The conclusion I came to was that this was the newest medication I was on, and I wasn’t having these problems before. I also realized that I was sleeping maybe 1-2 hours a night for several months, all within the timeframe of the addition of the new medication. When I told the doctor this, he acted like I didn’t know what I was talking about. I knew that if my kidneys failed, he was just going to say he was following protocol, but I will be in dialysis. When I got referred to a kidney specialist, I got copies of my labs and found out other things that he never told me about, some things that could be fixed with vitamins and an iron supplement. This had been going on for years. I’m willing to bet, there are people on dialysis who did everything the doctor ordered and still ended up on it all because of a medication. I told my new doctor that I am not going make you pay for the previous doctor’s sins, but I don’t follow anyone blindly.

      • neurodoc October 18, 2022 at 2:44 pm #

        Before I retired from teaching residents in a medicine dept of a major med ctr, I told several residents of a recent article from the British Journal of Medicine (highly ranked worldwide) that presented a highly valid meta-analysis of the effects and side effects of statins across hundreds of studies. Briefly, they find that statins have a beneficial effect in only 18% of patients–those with brittle diabetes and very high triglycerides. This means that 82% of patients have no beneficial effects whatsoever and the majority have significant side effects from low testosterone, low estrogens, muscle cramps and spasms, and in some case depression and suicides. One of the residents told another attending about the study and his response…..’Don’t read British or European journals, they’re all bullshit and most DON”T EVEN HAVE ADVERTISEMENTs for support.’ (How dare they, BMJ, question the cholesterol mythology). Typical response from a NAZI doctor—believe only what big pharma says or supports. Glad I’m out of NAZI medicine.

      @ neurodoc:

      What I see–based on what little contact I have with doctors–is that all treatment seems to be done on a “flow chart” model. Every step of diagnosis and treatment is set for in order on the flow chart. Most of the time, every step in this series of treatments seems to have either no benefit at all or a negative outcome. It’s like the flow chart is designed to make the patient sicker.

      • Anthea October 17, 2022 at 5:23 pm #

        I have the impression that they would surgically remove your polyps, whether you had them or not, if that was the next step on the flow chart.

        I also suspect that the flow chart is produced by the insurance companies.

      • neurodoc October 18, 2022 at 2:56 pm #

        The flow charts are in hand held computers and they are developed by big pharma; all drugs in the end result are BRAND, not Generic. Think money; metformin for diabetes type II costs about 10 cents a pill and is highly effective, and NOT on any of the flow charts I’ve seen—what’s there are the new diabetes meds you see on TV that can costs in the thousands per month. Money talks. Money rules.

        • Anthea October 19, 2022 at 7:46 pm #

          @ neurodoc:

          My expeience (as a diabetic) and the experience of multiple diabetic friends is that metformin is pushed relentlessly–prescribed to everyone.

          In my case, the side-effects from metformin were so severe that I flatly refused to take it. It also did not appear to me that metformin was having any effect whatsoever. I spent almost a year telling my endocrinologist, “I’m not taking it,” while she continued to insist that I take it. Finally, a friend who is an RN (and also diabetic) said, “Why don’t you ask her to prescirbe something else?” She told me what she took, though I can’t remember the name of the drug. The next time I saw my endocrinologist, I asked her to prescribe a different drug and mentioned the one my RN friend was taking. The endocrinologist said, “Okay.”

          I started the new medication, which had no side-effects but did not seem to be lowering my blood sugar. So after that I stopped going to the doctor for a number of years and worked on controlling my blood sugar with diet. (Apparently I am too far gone for that to be effective.)

          Finally, my daughters insisted that I go to a local doctor in private practice in a nearby small town. (She is known for prescribing Ivermectin.) She was horrified at my A1c, which was 10, but gave me a prescription that lowered by A1c to 6.3.

          She also gave me a prescription for arthritis (Meloxicam). I noticed I seemed to be getting a lot of itchy bug-bites, but I assumed that this was because it was spring and the chiggers and fleas and such were unusually bad. When it got to where the itching was very severe and I had developed numerous sores, I finally realized that this problem had started with the Meloxicam. I stopped taking it and the itching cleared up, though many of the sores don’t seem to heal. I think this drug was also deleterious to my skin in general.

          Probably all of the NSAIDs class of drugs are contraindicated, if that one has bad side-effects. So I guess I will ask the doctor about other methods of treatment, as I understand that they can give you injections in the offending joints. (Hyaluronic acid? Steroids? I’m not sure what is used.)

      My son is a smart caring 25yo in his 4th yr of medical school with interviews at Duke, Vanderbilt, and NYU thus far. To get to the “next level” he will have to learn what is required. He can’t turn off his brain but he has to listen to what his teachers tell him. He was brought up right and should be a good doctor. Practically speaking, when can HE decide what’s best for the patient? Does he tell the attending to take a hike because he thinks a problem is nutrition not a surgery issue? We are trying to protect him from dependency by minimizing his student loans but I’ll have to hope he will see through the medical racket and do what’s best.
      As a side note, my own personal physician, a friend since HS retired 3 years ago. He sold his practice to 4 women who I soon gleaned wanted a ladies only practice. When Covid commenced, I asked about their protocol if I tested positive–hoping I would hear something about the interesting results from the Zelensky early treatment protocol but no, their advice was stay home until I couldn’t breathe and then head to the ER. The nurse was quite specific, we don’t treat Covid. So I fired them and got a new young guy, late 20’s, full sleeve tattoo and just out of residency. I liked him but in 6 months he had me on BP meds, statins, Flo-max and I told him I never felt old till I started taking all these meds so I’m ditching them and now feel better. Whether I’m closer to dying than I would be is another story. He thought I should get the Covid VAX so being skeptical I checked back with my retired Dr. friend who was adamant that everyone over 65 should get it and so I did, quite early in Jan 2021. I told my 3 children it was experimental and to let the old folks go first for a couple of years to see how it goes. But I have moved to the “no way Jose” on any more and will not be getting a regular flu vaccine either. My long time Dr. friend came down with a bad pulmonary embolism 2 months after a booster but does not think it caused it. I guess I have to let him marinate in that reflection….
      I was at a neighbor’s wedding for their son Sat night and my rough survey was that none of us old people have had any problems with either Covid or the vaccine. My own “Covid” infection was quite mild. People seemed predisposed to forget the whole thing. But what perfidy is lurking behind this moment of forgetfulness while we worry about the poor Ukrainians?
      My big question–who is going to insist on any investigation of the criminals who fomented this mess and how can they be stopped from their self serving plans?

      • SW October 17, 2022 at 6:47 pm #

        I’m sure your son will do his absolute best to make good decisions with his patients. The problem — and it’s a very big problem — is he won’t be in charge of important decisions. About two weeks ago I had dinner at a friend’s and their good friend was the CEO of a local hospital. He said he’d had to call in two ER doctors and “go over policy with them”. His wife chirped up “it’s a business!!” What I’m hoping will happen is younger doctors will ban together and fight this power grab, because this is what it is — a power grab. Hospitals can not function without doctors and they have steadily and surreptitiously convinced them otherwise.

          There used to be a naturopathic doctor in my area: Dr. Lawrence Dorman, who was located in Independence, Missouri. He was an MD. He had a huge and thriving practice. I used to take my kids to him, and the waiting room was always full. In the 90s, he charged $50 for an office visit. Prescriptions, which you got filled next door at an herb-and-supplement store, usually ran about about $50. That was for psoriasis. For pink-eye, all you needed was a bottle of castor oil, a hot compress, and some boric acid eyewash.

          The Board of Healing Arts took away his license about 20 years ago, based on what looks to me like a set-up.

          That’s what happens to naturopathic doctors if they get too successful.

        Tell your son to keep his opinions about alternative medicine (e.g. nutrition, herbals, supplements, etc) to himself and to try hard not to lose that perspective during 4 years of brain washing. I learned that the hard way, as I was a science PhD BEFORE entering med school and had graduate students under my purview, where discussion and questioning were critical parts of the learning process. I was in a top 10 med school, residencies and fellowship, and they were all NAZI pharma oriented to the core, and I learned quickly to bite my tongue to the point of needing to buy stock in the ora jel company :). Smaller schools may be more tolerant as they are less hooked into big pharma bid money. Something for him to think about. But he probably won’t, I didn’t. It easier to see this reality in hindsight.

    Since we can’t seem to get our priorities straight, I think it’s high time someone invaded us and kicked our silly asses around for a few years. Then maybe we would quickly forget all the woke idiocy, including the absurd fascination with fluid genderism and start worrying about what really matters…..trying to stay ALIVE! We have become a truly sick disgusting society or moral decay and I don’t see that changing until we simply have no time for that shit anymore because we have to do REAL things to stay alive. You know, generating energy, growing food, learning how to defend our selves (not via the “police” but on our own or within our clans), etc. And to that, we must change our education systems to teach our kids real life matters….not woke and anti-white shit. We’ll find that we need each and every one of us (no matter color of skin) to defeat the invader(s).

  25. Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 12:24 pm #

    Something I have talked about before, but I’ve been realizing more and more how many ways it has been a part of the globalist agenda.

    The laying of the obesity epidemic at the feet of “fast food” and McDonald’s in particular.

    One of the things that started this particular ball rolling was when a performance artist made a film called Supersize Me, in which he stuffed himself silly with large amounts of McDonald’s food and gained a lot of weight.

    Not having watched the film, my impression was that his main point was our overeating culture, rather than the particular form of overeating.

    Whatever, a performance artist’s creation is hardly science, but that did not stop TPTB from taking it and running with it, as if it were so.

    I understand now that the reason for this is likely threefold:

    1) They don’t want you eating beef, and McDonald’s sells beef.

    2) They don’t want anyone looking behind the curtain and investigating the real causes (and I believe there are more than one) of the obesity epidemic.

    All those folks on late night television making the McDonald’s/fat people jokes was no accident. The entertainment industry is part of the MSM, and they will joke about what they are told they may joke about, or should joke about.

    Notice that today you hear the term “keto” more and more? Keto is no less than the Atkins diet, which Dr. Atkins was vilified for promoting, back when the “high protein” and then the low fat diet recommendations started to be pushed on Americans.

    The government had some corn to sell.

    Calling the old Atkins diet, with a tweak or two, “keto” enables those who pushed the false and harmful high carbohydrate diets to claim that these are new discoveries. Doctor Atkins was right, they knew he as right, but his being right did not fit the agenda, so they are never going to admit it.

    3) Once they had your attention that McDonald’s was a bad, bad place for making people fat, it was easier to attack them for not paying their employees a living wage, even though here are millions of other jobs that do not, and the bulk of McDonald’s employees are exactly who the minimum wage exists for- unskilled minors on their first entry into the labor market.

    Remember all the programd discussing the “inequality” in America, and the absolute scorn the term “flipping burgers” was spoken with?

    All according to plan, you weren’t going to eat meat anymore, and fixing it so McDonald’s couldn’t afford workers was all part of that.

    • malthuss October 17, 2022 at 12:51 pm #

      keto is cool. keto is good for fat loss. I do not recommend as a permanent way.

    • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 1:26 pm #

      Interesting points and you may be right about them, except the corn.

      Most of the corn is fed to the cows, not the people. We do get a lot via corn syrup and such, but cows eat a lot more.

      Also, McDonald’s when it first started employed older men, not women and not teenagers.

      • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 1:27 pm #

        Cows and chickens and pigs are all fed corn.

        And I don’t know how much the older men were paid, back in the old days.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 2:16 pm #

        Back when Butz backed the corn, it was going to be a way to feed the world or something.

        The push for the high wage because they couldn’t support a family on minimum wage, didn’t come until everybody but some of the politicians knew that most like workers were kids, and that plenty of older people with families in more responsible jobs didn’t make anywhere near 20 dollars an hour.

        Andrew Cuomo had no idea that many state government workers weren’t making that.

        No one seems to get that 20 dollars an hour for part-time work doesn’t support a family either.

        Cows should eat grass, not corn.

        • benr October 17, 2022 at 6:40 pm #

          Grass fed cows taste better and are healthier.
          I suspect the corn is not the real issue but how the corn is grown.
          With that said the cows would probably be healthier eating the corn stalks and not the corn kernels.

          A better use for the corn stalks would be ethanol.

            “Grass fed cows taste better and are healthier.”

            benr,
            Allow me to apologize in advance…

            “Grass fed beef” is a marketing ploy. It is pure bullshit. You cannot find a cow fed on grass only that will grade better than “choice”. I have processed numerous cows, mostly grass fed, and they are marginal in quality, at best. Neighbor has been a cattleman for his entire life…currently runs over 2000 head. Says he would never eat any but corn finished beef.

            The term “Prime Rib” is a cut that is graded “Prime”…not choice or utility. Prime, choice, etc. is determined by fat marbling of the meat.

            The Grass Fed Beef marketers would feed you shit and have you pay extra for the insult.

            Trust me on this.

          • justanotherguy October 17, 2022 at 10:48 pm #

            plenty of locally raised beef around here, always has the “grass fed” pitch on the label.

            most of it is burger – dry, tough burger.

            a grass fed steak has another life – shoe leather.

            anybody who hadn’t tried it might not know. but the corn – oh the corn.

            roundup ready, gmo shit that no human would eat anyway – the local sweet corn is what really fits the bill – and probably is the reason most people think “corn is good”. only some corn is good.

          • Paula D October 18, 2022 at 12:15 pm #

            Well yes, humans like fat as well as sweet things.

            It’s a genetic preference. Of course humans prefer fat cows to skinny cows. Cannibals probably prefer fat humans to skinny humans.

            I believe that benr was talking about the health of the cows in his statement, although I could be wrong.

            Cows obviously can eat corn, but they end up like Morgan Spurlock if they eat it for too long.

          • cbeard October 18, 2022 at 3:59 pm #

            I bought a variety pack from a local farmer that contained grass fed beef, pork chops, free range chicken, bacon, ham and lamb chops. None of it was edible to me. The beef was particularly awful. It doesn’t taste anything at all like a good corn fed cow. Also it was tough and stringy. I tried all of it and wound up throwing it out. I did eat some grass fed beef on a trip to Hawaii a few years ago that was quite good. But it was ground beef and probably mixed with other fats. Either beef or pork. The fat on the locally bought steaks was awful. When I grill a steak, the fat on the corn fed animals tastes great. The grass fed stuff was rank, horrible stuff. It may be a matter of taste. If you never had corn fed beef as opposed to grass fed, I guess you may think it is good. I have dabbled with the keto diet. It worked really well, alleviating some health issues that I had, but no more grass fed beef for me. Life is too short to eat bad tasting food for your health.

        • Night Owl October 18, 2022 at 5:47 pm #

          Indeed. Grass-fed beef is common here in Europe.

          Incredible taste. Though most Americans would call it “gamey,” as they are used to eating Frankenproducts, unless they have the money to shop at high-end organic shops.

          Schwab chuckles.

          • justanotherguy October 19, 2022 at 11:03 am #

            i like gamey – but our grass fed beef tastes off, not gamey.

            venison is the epitome of rich game flavor, but it is usually a very lean meat.

            the lesser cuts get ground, and the burger isn’t usually that good. but i had some venison that was ground with fatty bacon, and that’s just another world of flavor – all the problems of a too-lean burger fixed, exceptionally well complemented flavor.

            but yea, grass fed local has many benefits, and in the world to come, will probably be a rare treat, but for now, its good to support the infrastructure making it possible.

            grass fed beef works best in stews, chili or the like. i like leaner beef for those dishes, and that’s where we use it.

          • Islander October 20, 2022 at 12:25 pm #

            Why the purist-ism?

            Plain old meat loaf is improved by mixing fatty pork with beef and usually veal.

            Many peasant dishes involve combining different types of meat, often stewing them for hours or marinating or pounding or using other techniques to reduce stringiness. Also, all to most parts of the animal are used.

            The obsession with steaks is a symptom of degenerate pickiness!

      “Not having watched the film [Supersize Me], my impression was that his main point was our overeating culture, rather than the particular form of overeating.” — Beryl

      Wrong on several fronts.

      Unlike you, I watched the movie when it came out.

      One of Morgan Spurlock’s points was the rather unsurprising one that junk food is bad for you. His angle and hook is that he demonstrated this by getting a blood panel, weight check, insulin check, etc before beginning his experimental diet protocol of three meals a day of McDonald’s meals. He also had to accept any clerk’s request to get “supersized”, when made. The experiment was to last 30 days.

      Heroic stuff.

      The first 5 days did not go well. On the sixth day, he puked and lay in bed all day. Then the process flipped. As happens with diet, one’s body “adjusts” to the new reality. In its infinite, natural wisdom, ‘re-regulates’ the health of organic systems in order to process the flood of oncoming junk. He was just “fine” (ostensibly) for a few weeks until the body couldn’t compensate any more. Bloated, sick, fat and depressed, at day 27 he phoned his wife (he toured the country), who wanted him to quit. He finished, and then got the results. Liver was shot, overweight, blood pressure and fasting insulin level up, adrenals crashed, digestion trashed, all blood markers abnormal.

      His conclusion? Bureaucracy and media colludes to sell kids and adults crap in order to profit from it. But — like a true left-winger — he never castigated the gluttons and lazy parents. It’s like they were just passive victims, with no other options but to line up for that crap.

      Now the pendulum has swung the other way. We have a growing bureaucratic push to “eet zee bugz!” But thinking people can easily defeat that push, too. How? Refuse to eat that shit.

      As an aside, Spurlock’s wife was a gourmet vegetarian cook who made her living at it. Years after this documentary, she announced she was reintroducing meat into her diet because she needed it, and was having health issues.

          One way archaeologists tell whether a culture was a hunter-gatherer culture or an agricultural (grain-eating) one is by looking at the teeth of the skeletons. Tooth decay was virtually unknown before people began eating grains.

      • Beryl of Oyl October 17, 2022 at 2:37 pm #

        So, he did make a point about overeating, by accepting the supersize version whenever it was offered, and it was being offered at the time.

        Just as I believed from what little I saw, and, what I read.

        If you stuff yourself with an unbalanced diet, it does lead to poor health.

        What the documentary did not do is prove that McDonald’s is driving the obesity epidemic.

        Which was my point, my point was not to criticize his work.

            Speaking of McDonalds!

            Went to my local one and tried to order from inside as the drive thru was ridiculous.

            I was ignored for a couple of minutes and then the guy pointed to a sign that said please use the kiosk.
            So, I reluctantly did.
            When I was handed my food order it was missing an item and had the wrong breakfast sandwich in it.
            I got a sausage McGriddle but ordered a Sausage McMuffin.
            Look at my receipt it showed 2 hash browns and a Sausage McGriddle so I asked for my other hash brown and took a bite of the McGriddle.

            Damn sandwich was nasty.

            In the time it took for me to order my food, get the food and decide the entire meal was disgusting I watched four different people refuse to use the Kiosk and after being ignored walk out.

            In disgust I walked back up and returned the food.
            The sandwich was under cooked and had raw pancake batter in it.
            The hash browns were cold greasy as well as over salted and the coffee tasted like they brewed it with a dirty sock.
            Normally you can count on McDonalds to have decent coffee hot fries and coke products.
            I thought about how long it had been since I had McDonalds and realized before the plandemic.

            I have the receipt and will be complaining about the service and the food.
            I have never bothered to complain about food or service in my 53 years on this planet.

            It will be AT least three years before I bother to attempt McDonalds again.

        Another good documentary on the subject of McDonalds is “McLibel”. Two activists from some obscure English environmental group were handing out brochures describing how McDonalds is bad for: the environment, its workers, its consumers, probably other things I have forgotten.

        They were hauled into court (UK) by MickeyD. Despite proving that all of the allegations in the brochure were factual, the activists were found guilty, and fined – in the longest trial in UK history.

        Worth watching, if you’re on the fence about McDonalds, or if you just want to add fuel to your hatred of that behemoth.

        Thank you for your synopsis of the movie. One other point about the methodology that I wanted to include is that he systematically rotated through the menu. So he wasn’t eating the same thing every day and some of the menu options were salads. I forget what his policy was on deserts. Maybe he had a rotation for that too.

      Take out all processed foods to your dumpster. They contain all sorts of nasty shit including corn syrup.

      The paleo diet works. It’s what we humans used to eat. No bread, no pasta, no potatoes, no sugary anything of any kind. No beer, no alcohol.

      Just eat meat and vegetables cooked in a healthy oil like olive. The weight will fall off fast.

      On point with Jim’s piece- I am glad the sitting ducks are finally beginning to shoot back. This period of time reminds me of the poor Japanese Americans who got shafted in a royal proclamation by FDR.

      You think you have rights? You may have to argue the point over a gun barrel.

        Bread and carbs are not inherently bad for you. Carbs give you energy to burn.

        The problem is processed carbs. Over here in Europe, there are still actual bakeries around that make breads from scratch. That stuff is fine for you. Wonderbread not so much.

        Beer isn’t bad either, particularly in moderation. Some types of beer, such as Trappist beer, are bottle fermented and have all kinds of good stuff in them — particularly the sediment in the bottle.

        • malthuss October 17, 2022 at 3:19 pm #

            The type of carbs matters, though.

            This is something most Americans don’t understand, as most carbs are in the form of highly processed shitfood.

          My home brew is fermented until zero sugar in a 5 gal carboy. When bottled in 16 oz bar bottles sugar is added and final fermentation takes place in the bottle causing carbonation and yeast sediment. There is no way you could do the primary fermentation in the bottle without having the bottles explode. My brew is unfiltered and everyone seems to like it. All these micro brewerys don’t make a decent lager as it must be fermented at lower temps for several months and they don’t want to refrigerate due to cost. They mostly make ales. I do the lager in the winter so no cost. I prefer German lagers not ales.

          • elysianfield October 17, 2022 at 6:55 pm #

            Saint,
            I use the infusion method with an over-pressure bottling system when decanting.

            No sugar, no exploding bottles, no over or under carbonation. You will need a cornelius keg and a bottle of CO2…make the overpressure system yourself with a few valves.

            Oh yeah, and the brew is ready in only a couple of days.

          I was taken aback, when I lived in Germany, at how much bread was eaten.

          Also with–or as–a main meal. With Aufschnitt.

          I was assured that this was a good way to to eat.

          Of course Geman bread is famously better than American (or French, for htat matter), from a nutrition pov. .

          Bread is still the “staff of life” in “the West.”

          As for Germany, all the bread is probably balanced out by the sauerkraut!!

          • Night Owl October 18, 2022 at 1:53 pm #

            We do eat lots of bread here. Abendbrot instead of a warm meal was a big change for me.

            Lots of German beer is terrible, and the best ones are not brewed in line with the Rheinheitsgebot.

      • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 4:06 pm #

        I think we’ve had this argument before.

        Back then I pointed out that the ”meat” most people ate was bugs, not wooly mammoths.

        Then someone argued back that people in some places, like Alaska, ate mostly meat, not bugs.
        OK, true. Most humans eat whatever is available and easy to get. You know, like hamburgers nowadays or carrion and bugs back in the old days. My ancestors were known to pick corn out of horse manure, because they were hungry. Humans can eat almost anything, like the scavengers we are.

        But now that our overlords have announced that we will all be eating bugs, we have people strenuously asserting that “humans” can’t eat bugs. I find that hilarious.

        Tell it to the Mexicans and the Thais, for starters. Crickets are crunchy snacks to them.

        Or aren’t they ”human”? Just Americans?

        • Islander October 17, 2022 at 5:02 pm #

          I wonder what the bugs will be “farmed” with.
          A wild bug is a different animal from a “farmed” one.

          Just like farmed salmon. Never touch the stuff.

          Better to eat one helping of wild-caught per week than a helping of farmed every day.

          • malthuss October 17, 2022 at 7:29 pm #

            I look at the insect markets in Thailand and think, no way those are “wild caught”.

            Back in the day, humans used to turn over logs and eat whatever was there, but nowadays…..we got farms!

          • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 8:22 pm #

            I don’t eat meat anyway, so I can just sit back and snicker at the howls of anguish.

            What? I will happily point to a handcuffed lobster in a tank and say “Boil that one alive for me”, but no way will I eat a cricket!

            But they tell us that if you’re allergic to lobster you are probably allergic to crickets.

            Doh.

            2 things about bugs:

            parasites and chitin

            even farm raised bugs are noah’s ark for parasites. studies now making the rounds.

            chitin is a protein that humans cannot digest. it has been linked to ugly cancers, like retinoblastomas. studies making the rounds.

            lobsters shells are not on my diet. lobsters are remarkably parasite free.

            show me a locust that fits the bill, and i’ll ask to see your microscope for pulling the meat from those tiny legs. probably good that way – but bet nobody’s ever tried it.

            parasites:

            pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31283777/

            “The aim of this study was to identify and evaluate the developmental forms of parasites colonizing edible insects in household farms and pet stores in Central Europe and to determine the potential risk of parasitic infections for humans and animals. The experimental material comprised samples of live insects (imagines) from 300 household farms and pet stores, including 75 mealworm farms, 75 house cricket farms, 75 Madagascar hissing cockroach farms and 75 migrating locust farms. Parasites were detected in 244 (81.33%) out of 300 (100%) examined insect farms. In 206 (68.67%) of the cases, the identified parasites were pathogenic for insects only; in 106 (35.33%) cases, parasites were potentially parasitic for animals; and in 91 (30.33%) cases, parasites were potentially pathogenic for humans.”

          War on Vietnam. Three American grunts on R’n’R, hanging out in Thailand, girls on their arms.

          As they are sipping their Singha Beer and snacking, a sweet young thing comes strolling by with a rack of fresh-fried locusts slung around her neck.

          One of the GIs dares his pal to try them.

          “All right”, his buddy says, and brings out ten Baht, waving it at her as she obliges.

          He crunches down on a couple of locusts and makes a bright expression. “Hey these aren’t bad after all.”

          Locust-seller nods cheerfully.

          Other grunt, puzzled, asks his English-speaking girlfriend whether it’s not really difficult to catch the little flying fellas. She queries the seller, who responds cheerfully…

          “No, not at all!” and waves her hand about, making a PSSSSST! sound like an aerosol can of insecticide.

    This is about the third term it has been reveled that the vaccines did not prevent covid.

    The head of Pfizer DID say they did, when he knew they didn’t. We knew BEFORE they were made available, that they would not and could not do that.

    Deborah Birx has admitted that she “hoped” they could, but it has to be remembered that Birx is a stupid stupid woman who almost killed her own parents because she for some reason believed some voodoo she pulled out of her own butt “might” work.

    Why was a woman with a background in vaccine failure on the covid task force? Because Pence’s Deep State plants wanted her there.

    Usually Charles M. Blow, opinion columnist for the NYT, will support any Black or gay (he being both Black and gay). But today he wrote a piece I agree with 100%. He said of Herschel Walker “The Republican Senate candidate is devastatingly inarticulate.”

    I recall hearing Herschel speak back in his glory days following some athletic exploit (football game? probably) and noting his pathetic command of American English so typical of Blacks in general.

    Re: The Oregon vote to have several eastern counties join Idaho by moving the state line.

    Why don’t those counties simply join together to secede from the state of Oregon entirely and create a brand-new state? This would be just as challenging as their current endeavor. Plus, by doing this they would have more control over their future governance, especially if Idaho begins to go the way of California and western Oregon what with all the crazies moving out there for better standard of living.

      I agree, at the article’s end, that the WEF don’t raise up or empower relatively unknown people, at least the figures I’m more familiar with. They go with the already powerful. (Justin Trudeau was feared as Prime Minister Harper’s chief future rival long before Trudeau beat him in the election, and for obvious reasons. Trudeau Jr. could trade on his famous father’s name, and the son was even more ruthless in ambition.)

      But I disagree with the rather facile assertion that the WEF are just a party club, essentially a front for positive publicity in order to accrue more money. The ties between the WEF and the Bank of International Settlements, central banks, media, sovereign state political leaders, and big business (including Big Pharma) is undeniable. Not to mention key billionaires schmoozing in public with Schwab.

      It doesn’t take an in-depth and fearless journalist to uncover the links. And the woman quoted extensively in this link-piece isn’t exactly an insider, so that’s no excuse. Ditto for the article’s author, Pam Ho. Both of their opinions are unfounded and naive.

      • Night Owl October 17, 2022 at 3:10 pm #

        “I agree, at the article’s end, that the WEF don’t raise up or empower relatively unknown people”

        I disagree. Many of the Young Leaders are and were nobodies who go on to positions within governments, corporations, and CEOs and push the agenda.

        Some rise to the top and are aided by the globocap media machine. A perfect example of someone bursting onto the scene is Greta Thunberg. Not a WEF YL, but an Open Societies product. She was nothing one day, and the next she is lecturing world leaders on science (a prospect that is ofc beyond absurd).

        The media machine that WEF and co. own is what makes YLs into somebodies.

        • MaryQueen October 17, 2022 at 3:58 pm #

          Yes. I think I either posted or read an article linked up here (but I could be wrong) months ago, when we were discussing the YGLs. It was obvious that they promote absolute nobodies into low-level profeessional white-collar jobs. There were 22 year olds fresh out of college ‘winning’ all sorts of ‘awards’ (business stuff) and given profiles that made them look like geniuses and over-achievers. But it is all smoke and mirrors. They are groomed and given these positions so that they can steer whatever business into the direction the WEF wants.

          Now I really want to re-find that article.

          • Night Owl October 17, 2022 at 4:33 pm #

            They are indeed groomed, and in many cases their academic credentials are faked.

            Here in Germany there is an ongoing scandal over Christian Drosten’s doctoral thesis (initially there was no thesis on record), and Annalena Baerbock (a prominent WEF YL now in a top position in the government), has numerous questionable items on her CV.

            She’s a Young Global Influencer, beloved of Nicola Sturgeon, and pals with Gates and Chelsea Clinton. She’s just published a book and can’t believe how her ordinary little self has become such an achiever. Loads of these people are mediocre nobodies (being pretty helps, in her case) who get propelled into positions they’d never get without a patron. They are easily flattered, so eternally grateful and compliant.

            The answer to everything for this horror is … global surveillance. What a surprise.

            just because not all their pretty toys are rewarded, doesn’t mean the wef would not be interested in exercising influence and offering rewards to those who will play, and are worth the pay.

          But wasn’t Thunberg’s selection also a long-planned grooming by the collaboration of her parents with Open Societies? The tyke making her naive propaganda shrieks in public, which caught the attention of that public before the bureaucrats? IOW, it wasn’t just the WEF plucking her out of the blue, as with the quoted woman in Paula’s link?

          • Night Owl October 17, 2022 at 4:30 pm #

            No one knew who she was, and she was catapulted into the limelight.

            She had no background in doing anything of politcal import, and neither did her parents.

            Many of the YLs come from money, but they have not done anything.

            There is also a video of Schwab talking about how they observe people from a young age and invite them to the forum’s program.

            The reason the governments and public sector have been successfully infiltrated is that many of these people are pencil-pushers brought in through WEF partners in addition to the spotlight programs.

    “Our authorities have disgraced themselves behind a new theology of degenerate ‘science’ that veers back into superstition and necromancy.”

    The Times may change. Centuries may pass. And still, Planet Earth is always ruled by a small group of ignorant degenerates who treat the Earth and its inhabitants as their own personal property. They peddle lies and spread darkness upon the Land generation after generation. They hate Truth and the human spirit. They hate LIFE. They are dead inside and all They have to share with the World is death and emptiness.

    “The archbishops, confessors, and tortureors in the Inquisitions of yore had, in retrospect, at least one excuse for their misdeeds… their ideas about how the world worked were still largely driven by myth, fear, and occultism.”

    And today, we live in our Oh-So-Modern-and-Woke 21st Century. And how do we run things in this Age of Wokenlightenment? We use myth, fear, and dark occultism to keep the People of the World fearful, compliant, confused, unfulfilled, alienated, angry, despondent, and above all… quiet and deeply medicated.

    “Alas, the thinking classes across Western Civ have now gone insane.”

    Actually, what PASSES for ‘thinking classes’ are insane. But They in fact do not think. They do not know HOW to think. Thinking has been bred out of them so that it can’t annoying reappear within them some time in the future.

    There ARE true thinking classes still around today. But they have gone underground. They HAD to go underground in order to preserve their sanity, safety, and careers.

    When has a good and righteous person ever had to resort to fear and threats and dehumanizing others in order to lead properly? That would be NEVER. And it will always be… never.

    If someone is using fear and shaming and Cancelling tactics to conduct their business then They have telegraphed their toxicity and intent of bad purpose for all to see.

    Once our political and social and business and educational and religious institutions became corrupted… then that meant that anyone within those organization was or became corrupted as well. You have to be and stay corrupt in order to be part of that group or They will quickly drive you out.

    Groucho once said that he did not want to become a part of any group that would have him as a member.

    Want to know if you are personally on the right path? No one wants you part of their group.

    And you can be thankful to High Heaven for that.

    Anyone else notice that this year both baseball and football have been staging gigantic Safety! pageants?

    Never mind the game, safety comes first, that pitcher might hurt his arm or something if he pitches too many innings.

    I don’t follow football, but I heard that the fans were none too pleased with the umpires and their safety rulings at a recent game, I do not offhand recall which.

    The players do not like this, the fans do not like this, but it will continue so all understand that Safety! is the most important goal of any government, and that it is not a responsibility but a right of the authorities to impose Safety! in whatever form they determine it takes.

    • Roundball Shaman October 17, 2022 at 8:12 pm #

      Beryl of Oyl: “Anyone else notice that this year both baseball and football have been staging gigantic Safety! pageants?”

      Safety yes, but much more. Professional Sports (and Major College Sports) have become a primary source of widespread and heavy social engineering and propaganda dispersal.

      Fifty years ago there were three major television networks and major cities all had influential newspapers. These were the go-to places for people to be conned and properly indoctrinated.

      Since then, the media market has become much fractured and major city newspapers are just a shell for what they used to be and the influence they once had. People just don’t gather there like they used to anymore.

      Enter… Sports Entertainment! This is still one place that always draws millions of viewers with regularity. That’s where the mind control efforts upon us have shifted to.

      Worship the military… fight this disease… stamp out racism… be Safe!… get your toxic injections… eat food that’s bad for you… drink stuff that’s not good for you either… on and on the social indoctrination goes without end. And we are soaking all that in both consciously and subconsciously. And it is doing things to us.

      During a typical sports telecast you will be subject to endless commercials for Big Telecom, Big Pharma, Fast Food Restaurants… and the subtle social promptings of mixed race couples… disappearing older people… the worship of youth and ‘the children!’… and other social messaging aimed right at the core of what were once traditional values that now have been set for full erasure.

      Athletes have become brands. They have become filthy rich… as have the Owners. Everyone is awash in money and most everyone is promoting pure-grade propaganda and endless horse manure.

      The Game has become a Trojan horse for all kinds of toxic messaging and social re-engineering. There’s the Game you think you are watching… and then there’s the much bigger Game that being DONE TO YOU.

      And guess what? We LOSE every time.

    Great post and link to the kangaroo court of Maine Board of Medical Licensure! They messed with the wrong woman! Dr Nass happens to be an expert in pandemics, bioterrorism and SARS-Covid among other things going back 30 years. She is smart as a whip and knows her stuff.
    The first three hours are the Attorney General questioning her voluminous patient notes to try to demonstrate that she was somehow incompetent. Starting at 3:00:00 is her atty reviewing her many medical accomplishments and then reviewing the communications and unfounded complaints with no evidence Dr Nass received from the board to revoke her medical license.
    After going on ad nauseum for three hrs about the contrived complaints and patient notes, the moderator had no patience to hear the plaintiff’s side of the story.
    Apparently, the board reversed their ruling a week after this hearing. It became obvious that they were in the wrong.
    I hope she sues the hell out of them for loss of reputation and business.

    “US government tells Arizona to remove border containers”

    www (dot) msn.com/en-us/news/politics/us-government-tells-arizona-to-remove-border-containers/ar-AA13429E

    “The federal government is demanding the state remove double-stacked shipping containers placed to fill gaps in the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, saying they are unauthorized and violate U.S. law.”

    So I guess Buttigig wants these containers back in an effort to solve the shipping problems? Or maybe they can go direct to Mexico so the cartels can stuff them full of illegals and truck them back over the border? Either way, the State of Arizona should tell the Feds to go blow themselves.

    • Paula D October 17, 2022 at 4:15 pm #

      I find it hard to believe that the US can’t control its border without a wall.

      Suckers, please. There are drones and a Border Patrol (which hassles white Americans inside the US miles from the border) and cameras, but we have to build a wall?

      No, enforce the damn laws. You never see any Mexicans trudging along the roads of the US once they cross the border.
      Why? Where do they go? How do they get there?

      You can’t tell me that the government isn’t fully aware of buses or trucks or whatever they use to move people from the border.

      And that goes for the drugs also.

      They want the cheap labor and the drugs, it is clear to me.

        If the Feds are determined not to enforce the current laws, then bring in the containers.

    President Joe Biden found himself in hot water with his critics after he discussed the strength of the economy despite the rocketing inflation rates.

    The 79-year-old was captured on video eating a Baskin Robbins chocolate chip ice cream cone while chatting with a reporter in Oregon when he made the surprising claim on Saturday, October 15.

    The reporter asked him if he was worried about the the U.S. dollar, to which he replied, “I’m not concerned about the strength of the dollar. I’m concerned about the rest of the world. Our economy is strong as hell.”

    “Inflation is worldwide. It’s worse off than it is in the United States,” he continued. “So the problem is the lack of economic growth and sound policy in other countries not so much ours.”

    Last month, the annual U.S. inflation rate was at 8.3%, and in September the number remained fairly steady, only dipping slightly to 8.2%.

    Biden was caught on video posing for photos with a small group of people, but after the snapshot, he gave the girl an odd piece of advice.

    “Now a very important thing I told my daughters and granddaughters — no serious guys until you’re 30,” he told her in the clip. The girl awkwardly laughed off the remark, replying, “Okay. I’ll keep that in mind.”

        Niggertown, Islander, obviously.

        (Can’t control it. Stop me before I do it again.)

        An anecdote:

        It was 1988 and I had just made my escape from ugly Manhattan, where I’d been manhandled, and had begun my ESL-once again teaching career in faroff Jakarta.

        My students – “participants” – almost all middle-aged plump Muslim civil servants, studying English on the gubmint’s dime.

        Land Department, Technology Institute, Bank BNI, etc.

        First week of class. We are discussing some common aspect of life in the west, and a hand is raised. “What about the niggers? Can they make as much money?”

        I naturally did a double-take at this, while no one else in the class reacted, nary a whit. So as an aspect of the “cultural training” of my teaching I plowed into the subject head-on.

        “We don’t use that word anymore. As a matter of fact, it’s dangerous to say it out loud, in most English-speaking countries.”

        A puzzled look.

        “But I listen to rap music and hip-hop all the time, and they are going on ‘nigger nigger nigger’ all the time.

        Gentleman had a point.

        “Well look at it this way, Bambang. If you are a black person, then it is, ahh, not uncommon to say the word – likely to or about another black person. You will never hear it from an educated urban white person.”

        [Not precisely true but close enough for the educational context.]

        A puzzled look. “So if you are a nigger you can say ‘nigger’ but not if you aren’t one.”

        I nodded gravely. “That’s about the size of it. Don’t ask me why, because I have no idea.”

        A pointed question to the teacher. “Did you ever use the word?”

        “Maybe… when I was a kid back in Texas.”

        (Couldn’t help thinking of those erratic fizzing flying firecrackers we used to call “niggerchasers”, but I declined to share the memory.)

        I wrote the word “niggardly” on the whiteboard, and shared its definition. “A full professor lost his position at an American university for using this word in a lecture. That’s how serious it is.” (serious = silly)

    Have you noticed, on CNN & the BBC, reports of Ukranian glorious battlefield victories have ceased; on the contrary, evidence ominously suggests that Russia is getting ready to bring down the hammer? Massive troop buildups in Belarus & on the Russian border are just one indication of what is coming. Biden just the other day announced another $765 million in aid (that’s all?) for Ukraine, which may be the last cash infusion that can be squeezed out of the US before disaster strikes and armageddon ensues.

    Incidentally, these Iran manufactured drones that Russia is using to deliver explosives into Kiev and other cities seems to be something new and revolutionary. The job is getting done without the risk of losing expensive bomber aircraft and pilots. Add this to what we have seen in the Armenian – Azerbajain conflict — unmanned drones taking out tanks on the battlefield — and I believe we are looking at the future of warfare, just as Kurt Vonnegut predicted way back in the 1950s.

      Western State Media coverage of the war has a type of Peter Pan Syndrome attached to it.

      You are being told to close your eyes and just listen to propaganda.

      The Ukrainian military is degraded to the point that their offensives consist of a mix of pickup trucks, sedans, and whatever armored vehicles they’ve gotten from Germany or the US. They have little in the way left of artillery. Handfuls of M777s, HIMARS, mixed European arty systems, and Soviet ones. The Ukrainian air force is nascent and gets shot down if it lingers too long over the battlespace. And then there is the “anti-air” capability of the Ukrainians. We saw it in effect the last few days in Kiev: Men with AKs and RPGs desperately attempting to knock down those drones.

      • Paula D October 18, 2022 at 12:39 pm #

        It looks like the plan is to empty Ukraine of the last Ukrainian, as announced.

There are more images provided than you could shake a stick at.

    • Anthea October 18, 2022 at 9:58 am #

      @ GreenAlba:

      The listeria “outbreak” sounds like bullshit.

      “Six cases of Listeriosis dated from 2017 to 2022”? And these cases are not linked to the products but to the particular strain of listeriosis. And the products that were examined were not found to be contaminated, either: listeria was “found in one of the facilities.”

      Wikipedia says, “Listeria monocytogenes is commonly found in soil, stream water, sewage, plants, and food.” So the listeria “found in one of the facilities” could have come from dirt or water tracked in by employees, vegetation stuck to shoes or clothing, employee sack lunches, restroom toilet bowls or wash basins. Maybe the FDA checked the P-trap on the sink.

      • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 10:48 am #

        I agree. It’s just (a) more fear, (b) removing more food from the supply and (c) adding to the bad-mouthing of dairy products.

        I believe there are different kinds of listeria, some of which can be found in cheeses and are entirely harmless. The EU shut down some independent Irish cheese producer one time, years ago, claiming his cheese was dangerous (I think it was unpasteurised) and it was based on junk science. Not that I’m an expert on listeria.

      • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 10:55 am #

        Well, the new-normal ‘speed of science’ for novel genetic drugs is to be 100 days from scare to ‘vaccine’, ergo no plans for proper testing. Although, in the present situation, ‘testing’ doesn’t mean what it’s meant to mean anyway.

        As long as 50% of all ‘vaccinees’ don’t drop dead on their way out of the ‘vaccination’ centre, that’s all they need to know. Testing, from their point of view, just means how long will it take for the thing to do its worst and how many ways do we have of denying any links to the ‘vaccines’? The greater the variety of ill effects the better for hiding the link.

        And now that they’ve introduced the bivalent vaxx tested on 8 mice, people are accustomed to the practice of ‘building’ on the previous vaxx and not asking any questions about testing. The good news is that uptake levels have plummeted, so they will need something more scary to get into coercion and mandate territory again.

          The next day, I sent them an article from the Government’s own website by Matt Hancock (aka Midazolam Matt) praising the 4th Industrial Revolution and Uncle Klaus, and asked if they might turn their talents to producing a hit piece on it, calling it onspiracy theory and misinformation.

I didn’t expect an answer (other than ‘fuck off’, possibly!) – nor did I want one – and I didn’t get one.

            I’d never heard of the other guy, so I kind of hoped it would create some kind of embarrassing dynamic, addressing them together, with her being a big name at the Graun. If even someone like the secondary hack wakes up and thinks about his kids that would be something. Hyde is the daughter of a baronet, so she’s aristocracy, kind of. I don’t think that will necessarily save her kids in the future, once she’s served her purpose. It’s impossible to know what’s in the minds of these mercenary clowns.

            SSL, if you check out the link I provided to the Spanish film (with English narrative) upthread, at 1h44 or thereabouts there’s a section on16-digit MAC codes being emitted by vaxxed people, that can be picked up via bluetooth on certain phones and other devices.

            It was very strange. One of the researchers said that the codes come and go – they’re not stable – and if you try to contact them with a PIN they disappear as if ‘self-securitising’ or something. They are just speculating about the purpose, although tracking seems likely as a basic one. They were surmising as to how long the code would last and is that why they want people boosted every few months (in France, when they had digital vaxx passes, they were having to get boosted every 4 months).

            odysee.com/@thebigreset:1/ENGLISH:bb

            Dr Rima Laibow, in an interview I listened to the other day, speculates on even more sinister purposes. She reckons they are implicated in the people who drop rigidly dead (she calls it planking). She says no-one every died like that previously – people having heart attacks would ‘fold’ and collapse. She also speculated that the requirement for social distancing might be because you need 2 metres between people for a digital signal to distinguish between one and another.

            Creepy stuff. But nothing would be too evil for the ghouls.

      Wow that is so sad. In a polite society whomever placed him on that stage would be tried and convicted for elder abuse and elder fraud. That is unless they examine him and find that he is an appliance rather than a human. I think part of his whole deal is a humiliation exercise foisted upon us by those in the shadows pulling his strings.

        It would be sad if it were someone other than that career criminal slimeball. Instead it is disgusting that the mob that runs this country is able to put a demented old pervert in the Oval Office and we the people can’t or won’t do anything about it. And to think that there are many out there who will defend this braindead fool – I think that’s the worst part.

    I wonder if Skeet actually got around to tattooing Kim’s kids names on his body. Imagine tattooing the names of your whore girlfriend’s black kids on your body and then having her leave you. Poor Skeet.

    Ye said that Skeet said that they would make love in front of the fireplace in honor of his grandmother. How did this honor his grandmother?

    Ye said, “And he saying this to a Christian woman!”. Kim is Christian, Ye? The word doesn’t mean much if so. As someone once said, If she ever had a soul, she farted it out a long time ago.

    Ye also thinks Blacks are Israelites just like the Jews are. I’m not following this either, but I suppose it’s no more ridiculous than Whites who think they are. And not all that much more ridiculous than Jews who think they are the same people as those in the Old Testament.

I don’t know if this is true or just a planted article or maybe even a diversion, but I didn’t care for it too much. Trump thinks he could be the PM in Israel. He also touts that he is more popular in Israel than he is with American Jews. When I see that I just think to myself, “And is that really what you are looking for” and then I just move on and try not to think about it too much. Skeet LOL. What a nickname. He sounds dirty.

            Yes, I don’t doubt that given just the level of corruption throughout the government and the whole system. But I wonder if our side could develop the parallel system needed given that the wealthiest elites seem to be on the side of the globalists. And it looks like we need our own oligarchs in a way.

            It is quite possible. Farming coops, with food delivered sans middle man.

            I was listening to Rainer Fuellmich recently, and they are working on getting independent healthcare practices together for people who want out of the system.

            For the latter, I think the market will only increase, as there is already a strong demand for “unvaccinated” blood.

            The beauty of this approach is that the globalist mafia has to resort to naked agression to stop this sort of society from developing. For the fence-sitters, this leaves no doubt as to what is going on.

          • MaryQueen October 19, 2022 at 12:39 pm #

            N.O., even 1.5 years ago I was seeing comments on alternative news blogs by healthcare practitioners with a conscience who had left the big conglomerates and opened up their own clinics. They were getting so much business they almost couldn’t handle it.

            People want the old system back, where it was affordable to see a doctor and you didn’t need insurance and if you did need a prescription (rare) it was also affordable.

            And doctors understood that diet is the biggest factor in health (along with exercise).

    Biden lately has argued that inflation will get worse if Republicans win control of Congress, painting Democrats as the party standing up for working people.

    He’s been adamant that the U.S. isn’t heading for a recession, but he acknowledged in an interview with CNN last week that there is a possibility of a “very slight recession.”

    The president’s party has gained seats in a midterm election only twice in the past 80 years: in 1998 during former President Clinton’s second term and in 2002 during former President George W. Bush’s first term the year after the Sept. 11 attacks.

    With everything going on in the country at this time, the forecast certainly looks against the Dems, so if they happen to gain seats then this is almost certain proof that the jig is up and the election was fixed.

    • Redneck Liberal October 18, 2022 at 6:07 pm #

    No. Ye is the better man. He should run for President. He would better represent Whites than Trump would. At least he thinks our lives matter, even if we aren’t the Chosen like Blacks are.

    • cowbell81 October 18, 2022 at 1:13 pm #

      That would be so truly rich if Ye was to run for President as a Republican or an independent. It would certainly show the hypocrisy and true colors of people when they refuse to vote for him yet spout a bunch of BLM bullshit.

    Sanofi flu quaxxines being pushed here on local TV (the flu is personified as a wolf, stalking victims in a hospital) with the claim “helps prevent harmful flu complications such as pneumonia and heart attacks.” So the standard line now is that flu can lead to heart attacks? That’s news to me. More normalizing the CV-19 quaxxine narrative here at work. CV-19 not as bad as we thought? Oh well, flu is just as bad! Matter of fact [speaks in whisper] CV-19 WAS just the flu (at least until you took the quaxx, then you had some REAL shit!), but don’t tell anybody.

      Well, is being a “climate denier” less evil than being an “ageist”? Climate alarmists might be puzzled at the weather news right now for Michigan, up to 18 inches of snow has fallen in the northern areas of the state.

      I got curious about this news, and checked the southern forecast, using the Atlanta Ga. forecast as typical for the south. Freeze warnings are in effect for Wednesday nite, 27 degrees F. Warnings are posted for farmers to protect crops. And warnings to protect water pipes outside.

      I’m telling ya, this global warming is gonna kill us all. The climate hysterics tell us we will all be burnt to cinders in ten years. Then they tell us they gotta hang up the phone and go outside to shovel a tunnel out to get to their mailbox.

      • GreenAlba October 18, 2022 at 7:35 pm #

      • beantownbill. October 18, 2022 at 10:23 pm #

        Snow is composed of water. It’s rain that occurred when the temperature falls below freezing. 18 inches of snow equals approximately 1.8 inches of rain, depending on its moisture content. Is it very rare for snow to fall in mid-october?

        Anyway, early snow doesn’t mean the climate is cooling. Do you know the average temperature for Michigan so far this year (I don’t)? Climate change trends happen over long time periods. I have no side in the global warming/cooling debate, but it seems to me that the only valid answer must depend on longer time scales before any conclusions can be drawn.

        • Not_GeorgeT October 19, 2022 at 2:39 am #

            (trannys must be slow? oops, different topic)

            The stick in reverse with clutch pedal in and tranny re-engaged as the snow slows the blade to stop is, imo, the way to go. Not so many stick shifts being made these days, difficult to find.

    Looks like George Floyd’s family is looking to cash in on Ye! Poor George, he was such an upstanding citizen that never did anything wrong….

    Article snippet:

    The mother of George Floyd’s daughter announced they are filing a $250 million lawsuit against Kanye West over his recent statements about Floyd’s death. The rapper, who goes by Ye, erroneously declared on a podcast that Floyd died from fentanyl, not as the result of police brutality.

    “Kanye’s comments are a repugnant attempt to discount George Floyd’s life and to profit from his inhumane death,” attorney Pat D. Dixon III said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that the goal with the lawsuit is to “hold Mr. West accountable” for his “flagrant remarks.”

    The lawsuit will go after West’s “business partners” and “associates” as the comments caused “harassment, misappropriation, defamation, and infliction of emotional distress.” Gianna is the sole beneficiary of Floyd’s estate.

    “The interests of the child are priority. George Floyd’s daughter is being retraumatized by Kanye West’s comments and he’s creating an unsafe and unhealthy environment for her,” added Attorney Nuru Witherspoon.

    Roxie Washington, acting on behalf of her and Floyd’s child, Gianna, retained the Witherspoon Law Group and Dixon & Dixon Attorneys at Law. They fired off a cease and desist to West.

    “Mr. Floyd’s cause of death is well-settled through evidence presented in courts of law during the criminal and civil trials that were the result of his untimely and horrific death. Nevertheless, you have maliciously made statements that are inaccurate and unfounded, causing damage to Mr. Floyd’s estate and his family,” the letter reads, which was obtained by Yahoo Entertainment.

    • Woodchuck October 18, 2022 at 6:06 pm #

      In my opinion, the second most disreputable profession in the USA is lawyers. The first most is the “health care” industry. Maybe the third sleaziest profession out there is the music industry. There are always a few exceptions, it looks like Kanye is waking up. He is discovering that a slogan we once used in childhood is no longer true.

      “Sticks and stones can hurt my bones but words can never harm me”!

      Back in the day, if you were a fellow always getting his feelings hurt then you’d become a joke. It seems today’s humans are so fragile that their lives can be ruined by the casual comments and formerly harmless talk of others. What will our population ever do when confronted by real problems instead of all these imaginary ones?
