Time to Put 'Democratic Security' Strategies to Work to #StopTheSteal

Trump rally in Wildwood, NJ, January 28, 2020
Trump and his supporters must now employ "Democratic Security" strategies such as staging large-scale but very peaceful rallies in his support in the remaining undeclared states in order to stop the steal that the Democrats are conniving to commit, but even if (or rather, when) he's declared the victor, the "deep state" and their proxies might have already thrown the election's legitimacy into doubt through their last-ditch attempt to defraud the vote, thus setting the stage for a possibly unprecedented intensification of the decades-long Hybrid War of Terror on America.

The decades-long Hybrid War of Terror on America might be about to experience an unprecedented intensification after it first went kinetic over the summer as a result of the Democrats' last-ditch effort to defraud the vote by temporarily suspending the release of ballot counting in the remaining undeclared states. As it stands, Trump is correct in stating that it's almost statistically impossible for them to steal his victory, yet he's taking those states to court in order to defend the integrity of the country's democratic process despite declaring that he already feels like he won. It's not the incumbent that's taking America to the brink of domestic disaster, but his opponent, or rather the Democrat candidate's handlers (since it's visibly obvious that Biden doesn't have full control of his mental faculties) who are desperately trying to throw Trump's re-election into doubt for the purpose of providing ammunition for the next four years of their information war against him.

Breaking a Lance in Support of Trump

Trump buy American
Fair warning: I'll squarely defend Trump in this article. I'll hone in on the good things he has done. Lo' and behold: there are many. With Trump's press coverage being 95% negative, I think that approach is needed, necessary and long-overdue.

I tried to make each section readable in and by itself. So skim over the headlines, pick a topic, read a bit, get upset (because "I defend the orange monster") and think: what if?

Objective:Health - The Pharma Deluge: How Much Medication is Too Much?

O:H header
Back in the good old days, people would generally take a medication, one at a time, when they were sick, and discontinue it when they were well. But we currently live in an age where it is relatively common for people, particularly the elderly, to be taking multiple medications, (often 10 or more) for years, if not a lifetime. This is known as polypharmacy: the concurrent use of multiple medications by a patient, and the problem is only growing.

In the US, 31% of older adults were taking 5 or more medications per year in 2006. Five years later, that number had increased to 36% . In a Swedish population study, 17% of adults were taking five or more drugs per day in 2006. This had increased to 19% in 2014.

To make matters worse, their are few to no studies actually looking at the effects of taking multiple drugs at a time - particularly in elderly patients. The fact is, no one knows what this is actually doing to us.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health when we explore the question: Do we really need all these drugs?

A Biden Presidency Means 'The Return of the Blob'

return of the blob
What happens on November 3rd? It's like a larger than life replay of the famous Hollywood adage: "No one knows anything."

The Dem strategy is crystal clear, spawned by the gaming of election scenarios embedded in the Transition Integrity Project and made even more explicit by one of TIP's co-founders, a law professor at Georgetown University.

Hillary Clinton, bluntly, has already called it: Dems must re-take the White House by any and all means and under any and all circumstances.

And just in case, with a 5,000-word opus, she already positioned herself for a plum job.

As much as Dems have made it very clear they will never accept a Trump victory, the counterpunch was vintage Trump: he told the Proud Boys to "stand back" - as in no violence, for now - but crucially to "stand by", as in "get ready".

The stage is set for Kill Bill mayhem on November 3rd and beyond.

Always Covid & Never Christmas: Breaking the Spell That Holds us in its Grip

narnia
"Boris Johnson? Who is he?" asked Lucy.
"Why, it is he that has got all Covidia under his thumb," said Mr Tumnus. "It's he that makes it always Covid. Always Covid and never Christmas; think of that!"
- The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, CS Lewis (with a few changes)
Were he around today, I have no doubt that C.S. Lewis, one of the 20th Century's greatest intellects, would be utterly scathing of what the British Government has done to this country over the past 7 months, given that it has been the very epitome of the scientific and technocratic oligarchy he warned us about decades ago. And so I feel somewhat at liberty to take his comment about the White Witch turning Narnia into perpetual winter without joy and without Christmas, and apply it to our own situation in the land of Covidia (which is where you now live) - a place of perpetual fear and misery, where ordinary life is impossible, and where any hints of joy breaking out must be nipped in the bud before they are allowed to grow to challenge the new winter normal that is settling fast around us.

The words may even turn out to be literally true. In Scotland, they are already talking about what they call a digital Christmas, whatever absurdity that is, whilst in England a psychological game of Good Cop/Bad Cop is going on, with Comrade de Pfeffel Johnson apparently desperately hoping that we'll all have a normal Christmas, but with members of the ironically named SAGE committee saying this is wishful thinking. Who will win out? Of course the Bad Cops will win out, but no doubt carefully managed and cleverly messaged to present it as a kind of victory for Good Cop, whereby he wangles some concessions for us, such as a relaxation of the Rule of 6 to the Rule of 6+1 for a day, so that Great Aunt Maud doesn't have to spend the day alone, and with Rishi Sunak perhaps pledging some more of his magic beans to fund subsidised turkeys. Come to think of it, cut-price turkeys would be a fairly apt metaphor for those in charge of this debacle. But lest they try to befuddle us with silly details over the next few weeks, hold this thought front and centre: The idea that anyone should need permission from the likes of de Pfeffel Johnson and his crew to be able to celebrate with their family and relations the coming of the King of Kings into the world is beyond parody.

MindMatters: The Weird World of Color Perception and Adaptation: Interview with Dr. Katie Tregillus

tregillus
Everyone likes a good optical illusion, but fewer understand them. Today we interview Katie Tregillus PhD about her research on color perception and adaptation. Katie takes us through the strange and complex world of color, from basic physiology up to conscious perception. How can different people looking at the same image 'see' totally different colors? How do colored lenses change our perception of the world of color? And what are some of the craziest visual illusions and perceptual adaptations known in the field today? All this and more today on MindMatters.

Objective:Health: - D‌eath in Covid Vaccine Study - No Safety Concerns?‌

O:H header
A participant in the trials of a Covid-19 vaccine being developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University has died. Seems like kind of a big deal. But the authorities have assured us that, after a "thorough" review, there's nothing to worry about and the trials are proceding. AstraZeneca said in a statement that it could not comment on individual cases but it "can confirm that all required review processes have been followed... These assessments have not led to any concerns about continuation of the ongoing study." Very reassuring.

As could be expected, there is very little information given about the circumstances surrounding the death, and what has been released has been confusing and contradictory. Some are reporting that the participant wasn't in the vaccine group, but was in the placebo group, but then the placebo group, apparently, aren't getting an inert substance, but are instead getting a meningitis vaccine. But the guy didn't die from that vaccine either, he died of Covid related complications. So how exactly did that happen?

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we try to sort through this mess and talk about other aspects of the vaccine of the century.

Bad Guys

The Corruptocracy

biden and hillary
Most political philosophy is just an elaborate justification for theft and fraud.

What's called the silent majority is really the ignored majority, who for the most part are happy being ignored. Their lives revolve around their families, jobs, friends, and community, not the media, publicity, polls, or politics. They're sick of elections well before they've seen their hundredth campaign ad, received their hundredth mailer, or ignored their hundredth telephone call. They know that politicians are phony and corrupt and make jokes about them, but hope that their rulers don't screw things up too badly, cross their fingers, and vote for the perceived lesser of two evils.

There's a shortage of blue-ribbon pedigrees, Ivy League degrees, and gold-plated resumés among the ignored majority, but a surfeit of hard-knocks wisdom and common sense. Benjamin Franklin said, "Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other." Everybody does foolish things, but by and large, the ignored majority learns from the dear school and puts its lessons to good use.

The gilded class denigrates those outside it: Hillary Clinton deploring the "deplorables," Barack Obama saying working-class voters, "cling to guns or religion," and Obama telling entrepreneurs, "you didn't build that." Yet, it consistently, almost invariably, demonstrates a complete lack of the common-sense street smarts found in abundance among those it disparages.

MindMatters: Our Place in the Cosmos, and Why the New Atheists Are Wrong

as above
Today on MindMatters, Harrison and Adam use one of David Ray Griffin's recent books as a jumping-off point to bring together many threads from previous episodes. What is our place in the cosmos? What can the study of nature tell us about ourselves, and about the cosmic mind? From the smallest bits of 'matter' and energy, to animals, minds, and meaning, we tie together our previous discussions with Ken Pedersen, John Buchanan, James Carpenter, along with ideas from Gurdjieff, Ibn Arabi, Stoicism, Jordan Peterson and more, to attempt an initial answer to the question.

Along the way we discuss the merits of the anthropic principle and 'fine-tuning', the self-destructing arguments of the new atheists, one of Rupert Sheldrake's coolest ideas, and why importance is perhaps the most important thing for philosophy.

World Doctors Alliance: Open Letter to UK Government, World Governments and Citizens of the World

first harm hippocratic oath
We are an independent non-profit alliance of doctors, nurses, healthcare professionals and staff around the world who have united in the wake of the Covid-19 response chapter to share experiences with a view to ending all lockdowns and related damaging measures and to re-establish universal health determinance of psychological and physical wellbeing for all humanity.

Introduction

We were told initially that the premise for lockdown was to 'flatten the curve' and therefore protect the NHS from being overwhelmed.

It is clear that at no point was the National Health Service (NHS) in any danger of being overwhelmed, and since May 2020 covid wards have been largely empty; and crucially the death toll from covid has remained extremely low.

We now have hundreds of thousands of so-called 'cases', 'infections' and 'positive tests' but hardly any sick people. Recall that four fifths (80%) of 'infections' are asymptomatic1 Covid wards have been by and large empty throughout June, July, August and September 2020. Most importantly covid deaths are at an all-time low. It is clear that these 'cases' are in fact not 'cases' but rather they are normal healthy people.
