Stephen Cohen's 2017 Prophecy About The Nuclear Threat of Russiagate is Coming True

nyt cyberattacks russia
The New York Times has published an anonymously sourced report titled "U.S. Escalates Online Attacks on Russia's Power Grid" about the "placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before" which could potentially "plunge Russia into darkness or cripple its military," with one anonymous official reporting that "We are doing things at a scale that we never contemplated a few years ago."

Obviously this is yet another serious escalation in the continually mounting series of steps that have been taken into a new cold war between the planet's two nuclear superpowers. Had a report been leaked to Russian media from anonymous Kremlin officials that Moscow was escalating its cyber-aggressions against America's energy grid, this would doubtless be labeled an act of war by the political/media class of the US and its allies with demands for immediate retaliation.

To put this in perspective, The New York Times reported last year that the Pentagon was pushing for the US Nuclear Posture Review to include the strategy of retaliating against serious Russian cyberattacks on American power grids with nuclear weapons.

Objective:Health #19 - ADHD - Childhood Epidemic or Pharmaceutical Scam?

O:H header
ADHD is a controversial subject. While the psychiatric industry would have you believe that ADHD is a legitimate diagnosis, the truth is much more surprising.

In order to determine whether a child, or adult, has ADHD, only a vague set of parameters need to be met before medication is prescribed (and many of these parameters also describe normal childhood behavior). There are no brain scans, blood tests or hard scientific analyses associated with ADHD, only a checklist, subject to the biases of the psychiatrist or medical doctor. Possible causes of behavior issues are not considered and once a diagnosis is made, medication is the next step.

Even more problematic are that the drugs prescribed for ADHD are dangerous, and not only due to its side effects. Even when working properly, ADHD medications crush the creative spirit of children, turning them into obsessively obedient automatons. Being prescribed powerful, mind-altering psychotropic medications in childhood, when the brain is still developing, sets them up for a lifetime of problems. The fact that the medications are addictive is also problematic, to say the least.

Join us on this episode of Objective: Health as we look into the terrifying world of ADHD. What are we doing to our kids?

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, as she looks at the many possible reasons a cat may be vomiting.

False-Flag Empire: Oil Tanker Attacks in The Gulf Have US Fingerprints All Over Them

oil tanker attack CIA mossad
It was the Spanish philosopher, poet and novelist, George Santayana (1863-1952), who warned us all:
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
Watching the unfolding US promoted narrative in the Persian Gulf seas over this past few days and weeks those words should ring loudly in the ears of everyone who values peace and opposes the carnage, destruction and horrific waste of life delivered by war.

If you swallow the American propaganda plastered across newspaper front pages and dominating news bulletins on every Western TV news channel then you really are as bright as a dark night.

On the morning of Thursday, June 13th, two oil tankers were allegedly attacked in the Gulf of Oman, just off the coast of Iran. The US government immediately blamed Iran for the incident, without providing any evidence.

The vessels happened to be en route to Japan at precisely the same time that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was in Tehran. The first Japanese leader to visit Iran since its revolution 40 years ago, Abe was holding a historic meeting with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei when the incident took place.

What a great plan. It must have taken months of intense thought and deliberation amongst the smartest cookies at the very top of the Iranian government.

Comment: Believe it or not, there are so many false-flag incidents in US history, it takes an entire book to list them:

MindMatters: The Triumph of Irrationalism and the Death of Metaphysics

Between hysteria, censorship, endless war and climate catastrophe it seems the world has fallen victim to chaos and irrationality. On today's show we take a hard look at the origins of this madness and what to do about it, utilizing a work by one of our favorite philosophers, R.G. Collingwood.

Collingwood, an English philosopher, archaeologist and historian, passed away in 1943. But just three years before he passed he published An Essay on Metaphysics and left the world a rigorous defense of truth, ethics, and metaphysics, as well as a warning as to what would happen if these 'ancient sciences' were neglected or cast aside by future generations.

On today's show we utilize the work that he left behind in order to understand why the world is the way it is, and to explore what it takes to be rational in a time of complete chaos.

From Dollar Hegemony to Global Warming: Globalization, Glyphosate and Doctrines of Consent

There has been an on-going tectonic shift in the West since the abandonment of the Bretton Woods agreement in 1971. This accelerated when the USSR ended and has resulted in the 'neoliberal globalization' we see today.

At the same time, there has been an unprecedented campaign to re-engineer social consensus in the West. Part of this strategy, involves getting populations in Western countries to fixate on 'global warming', 'gender equity' and 'anti-racism': by focusing on identity politics and climate change, the devastating effects and injustices brought about by globalized capitalism and associated militarism largely remain unchallenged by the masses and stay firmly in the background.

This is the argument presented by Denis Rancourt, researcher at Ontario Civil Liberties Association, in a new report. Rancourt is a former full professor of physics at the University of Ottawa in Canada and author of 'Geo-economics and geo-politics drive successive eras of predatory globalization and socialengineering: Historical emergence of climate change, gender equity, and anti-racism as state doctrines' (April 2019).

7 Reasons to be Highly Skeptical of the Gulf of Oman Incident

pompeo
In a move that surprised exactly zero people, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has wasted no time scrambling to blame Iran for damage done to two sea vessels in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, citing exactly zero evidence.

"This assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high-degree of sophistication," Pompeo told the press in a statement.

"The United States will defend its forces, interests, and stand with our partners and allies to safeguard global commerce and regional stability. And we call upon all nations threatened by Iran's provocative acts to join us in that endeavor," Pompeo concluded before hastily shambling off, taking exactly zero questions.

Here are seven reasons to be extremely skeptical of everything Pompeo said:

The Lessons of Chernobyl: It's The West That Now Needs Glasnost

The much-acclaimed series 'Chernobyl' tells the story of the 1986 nuclear disaster and the authorities' attempts to play it down. Ironically, 33 years on, it's Western leaders who need to learn how to be honest and transparent.

It was the accident which some think led directly to the fall of communism. "Reformers in the Soviet Union, and Mikhail Gorbachev himself, used Chernobyl as an argument for more accountability and greater frankness, because the initial reaction of the Soviet authorities was anything but transparent. It became a symbol of what was wrong with the Soviet system," says Professor Archie Brown, author of 'The Rise and Fall of Communism', as cited in yesterday's Sunday Express newspaper.

Just three-and-a-half years after Chernobyl, the Berlin Wall came down, and in 1991, the USSR itself ceased to exist.

MindMatters: How Responding to Evil Can Unite Humanity

What is the fate of the average individual when psychopaths openly govern a country and pathological individuals occupy every office of importance across society? Join us today as we seek answers to these questions and continue our conversation on Chapter 5 of Andrew Lobaczewski's Political Ponerology.

In previous shows we discussed how schizoid individuals create grand ideologies, character-disturbed people weaponize them and turn them into a mass movement, and how psychopaths infiltrate these movements and, through their influence, serve as conduits for something that is as close to 'hell on earth' as we can imagine.

But today we talk about what comes after the pathocracy has firmly established itself. How do ordinary people learn to navigate a labyrinth of evil while still maintaining functioning families, economies, and society as a whole? And how is all of this relevant for the West today?

Objective:Health #17 - Attack of the Soyboys - The Feminization of Men‌‌

O:H header
We all know the stereotype of the Soyboy - males lacking in manliness, utterly subservient, usually declaring themselves to be a 'male feminist' and generally wallowing in the self-hating guilt of being an oppressive male. It's a clever meme based on the conception that soy consumption leads to a feminization in men. But it's just a meme, isn't it?

As with many examples, stereotypes are sometimes based on truth. Phytoestrogens, plant compounds naturally found in some of the foods we eat that mimic the hormone estrogen, particularly prevalent in soy, have been found in many scientific studies to cause this feminization, as well as playing havoc with the hormones of women. These findings are controversial (mostly because industry funded studies often come to the opposite conclusions), but it's a safe bet that there's at least some validity to the notion. Why take the risk?

On top of soy, there are a whole host of environmental chemicals that also have an estrogen mimicking effect. Called xenoestrogens, these chemicals are found in plastics, food additives, chemicals in body-care products, pesticides and herbicides - we are literally swimming in a sea of gender-bending chemicals 24 hours a day.

Today on Objective:Health, we provide a tentative answer to the proverbial question of our times: Where have all the real men gone? We also talk about how to avoid exposure to these feminizing chemicals, offer some solutions on detoxing foreign estrogenic compounds and give tips on boosting our own testosterone.

Glenn Greenwald Rips Liberals Begging For Censorship After YouTube 'Adpocalypse'

Glenn Greenwald speaks to Tucker Carlson
Journalist Glenn Greenwald blasted 'liberal' reporters who push for deplatforming and censorship of political opponents. "Imagine going into journalism and begging corporations to silence people," he told Fox News' Tucker Carlson.

Speaking to Carlson on Thursday, after YouTube demonetized hundreds of accounts for posting content even remotely linked to controversial topics, Greenwald excoriated Vox journalist Carlos Maza, whose clamoring against conservative shock-jock Steven Crowder triggered the crackdown.


"YouTube caved in defense of the powerful," Greenwald claimed. "That's what they will always do. Defend the mob and the powerful at the expense of those who are marginalized."

"It would never occur to me to run to social media companies to beg for censorship," he said. "In part, it comes with the territory of being a public figure. I don't want to live in a world where our discourse is policed and determined by overlords who run Silicon Valley companies and will always cater to the most powerful faction."
