Liberals Are Betting More of The Same to Win US Midterm Elections

media npc
The 2018 US midterm elections are shaping up to be not just a rematch of the 2016 presidential race but a rerun, as Democrats and the media seem determined to repeat the same mistakes that produced the presidency of Donald Trump.

Just look at the headlines, the polls, and the talking heads on television. Doesn't this remind you of 2016? Once again, celebrities and late-night show hosts are beseeching their fans to vote, while newspapers pen fawning pieces about Democrats "making history," the inevitability of the "Blue Wave," and the racist, racist, RACIST nature of every Republican ever, especially Trump.

The only thing that has changed is that most media outlets - which had overwhelmingly endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 - don't even bother hiding their preferences. Everything is out in the open now, stripped of all pretense and posturing. Ironically, that is one of the effects of the Trump presidency.

Soros Looking to Make Obscene Profits From Funding European 'Forced Migration'

The philanthropist George Soros recently published a letter in the Wall Street Journal entitled, 'Why I'm Investing 500 million USD in Migrants'. In this article, I will be looking at that letter and separating what it means from what it appears to say.

Soros' letter begins:
"The world has been unsettled by a surge in forced migration. Tens of millions of people are on the move, fleeing their home countries in search of a better life abroad. Some are escaping civil war or an oppressive regime; others are forced out by extreme poverty, lured by the possibility of economic advancement for themselves and their families."
This is quite true. And Soros should know since his think tank is fully on board with that "forced migration". He has either initiated it or facilitated it and, according to Viktor Orban, Prime Minister of Hungary (which is presently holding a referendum on whether to accept migrant quotas as demanded by the EU), as quoted by Bloomberg:
"His name is perhaps the strongest example of those who support anything that weakens nation states, they support everything that changes the traditional European lifestyle [...] These activists who support immigrants inadvertently become part of this international human-smuggling network."
Soros-backed activists are at the center of that network.

NewsReal: Is War on ('Islamic') Terror Morphing Into War on 'White Nationalism'?

white nationalism
The evils of 'white nationalism' has been a hot topic in the mainstream media lately, especially following the phony mail-bomb campaign targeting Democratic figures and the mass shooting of Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue, sparking countless 'soul-searching' psychological profiles of 'the typical Trump supporter' ahead of the US Midterm elections.

If we reflect on older events, like the Battle of Charlottesville last year, or the massacre at a black church in Charleston in 2015, and even elsewhere in 'NATOstan' - the massacre of children of Norwegian elites by Anders Breivik in 2011, for example - it's clear that this theme of 'white extremists' holding severe grudges against 'all racial and ideological enemies' has been percolating to the surface for some time.

Is it mere coincidence then that - just as nationalist feeling is growing in countries the world over, and producing electoral results that 'shock' the status quo - extremist caricatures of nationalism begin proliferating, occasionally commit atrocities, and thus blacken nationalism and mandate government crackdowns on all dissent that 'smells like nationalism'?

This week on NewsReal With Joe & Niall, your hosts wonder if the 'War on Terror' has become what it apparently always wanted to be: a war on political dissidents...

Paper Tiger Sanctions on Iran Will Speed The End of Pax Americana

New shiny sanctions for Iran, from the US Deep State!
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran, the P5+1 and EU was announced on July 14th, 2015. According to the US fact sheet, the EU would terminate all nuclear-related economic sanctions, and the US would terminate all of its secondary economic and financial sanctions once the International Atomic Energy Agency verified Iran's implementation of its key nuclear commitments, as laid out in the agreement.

On January 16th, 2016, UN inspectors declared that Iran had dismantled significant elements of its nuclear programme, leading to many of the international sanctions imposed over the past decade being lifted. If the lifting of sanctions continued as planned, Iran's total trade could have increased by $61 billion annually, which would add 32 percent to Iran's GDP. However, US President Trump withdrew from the deal earlier this year, and reimposed all sanctions against Iran. In addition, tomorrow, November 4th, new sanctions against Iran will be imposed.

The Empire Strikes Back: Experts Claim Doubts About Statins Perpetrated by Dangerous 'Cholesterol Deniers'

darth vader luke skywalker

Darth: Question the veracity of the lipid hypothesis and suffer my vicious name-calling, Luke! Luke: I'll never join you! I'd rather be ejected into space than attempt medical interventions based on faulty premises counter to overwhelming evidence!
If there's one thing I can be thankful for, it's the fact that the Guardian keeps publishing BS dietary and medical propaganda in massive quantities so that I never run out of things to write about. Another piece just hit the internet this week decrying the rise of the dangerous "cholesterol sceptics". Titled "Butter nonsense: the rise of the cholesterol deniers", by Sarah Boseley, it's yet another appeal to the authority of 'experts' to prop up the woefully outdated mainstream cholesterol hypothesis in the face of mounting evidence challenging its position. It reads like a typical hatchet job, full of projection, lacking in actual evidence and bolstering the 'official position' over dissenting voices.

The use of the term 'deniers' is, no doubt, a calculated one. Much as with the term 'climate-change denier' in regards to those who dare to question the orthodoxy of the AGW position, the term is used to bring an association with holocaust deniers, a term steeped in racism, conspiracy theory and a favoring of hate over logic. It's a hell of a thing to associate someone with, especially if their position is relying on logic, research and bravely stepping away from a position that is popular to one that is potentially career-ending, because it's closer to the truth. It's also ridiculously hyperbolic, reminiscent of the NPC command-line response "everyone who disagrees with me is a Nazi". At this point, if you see the loaded term 'denier' in a headline, you can be sure that anything that follows is a smear intended to shut down legitimate criticism.

Autohemotherapy: Re-Activating Your Body's Natural Capacity to Heal

autohemotherapy
Autohemotherapy is a concept attributed to Dr. Paul Ravaut at the beginning of the last century (1912) which involves the injection of blood withdrawn from your arm using a syringe and needle - just as a sample is taken when you have a blood lab analysis - and is then immediately injected back into the muscle (intramuscular) in your buttocks.

To illustrate how this simple technique proved to be useful throughout medical history, we're going to review one of the most astounding research articles on this topic. 'Autohemotherapy in Psychiatry' was published in the Maryland State Medical Journal by Robert Reddick back in 1955 when he was President of the Dorchester County Medical Society. He reports,
Within the last three decades, beneficial effects from the use of autohemotherapy have been reported in the treatment of the following conditions: pulmonary tuberculosis, drug addiction, scarlet fever, acne, carbunculosis, rheumatic fever, various dermatoses, hyperemesis gravidarum, hormone deficiencies, lymphopathia venereum, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, various allergies, fixed serologic reactions, septic conditions following miscarriage and abortion, furunculosis, various virus infections, urticaria, serum sickness, hemiplegia, bronchial asthma, acute chorea, leg ulcers, malaria, pleurisy, rabies, homologous serum jaundice, arthritis, Landry's polyradiculitis, acute anterior poliomyelitis, diphtheritic polyneuritis, duodenal fistula, tuberculous peritonitis, cardiovascular diseases, menstrual and menopausal complaints, various pneumonias, psoriasis and others.
That is a pretty compelling list whose track record should not be underestimated. We'll have a look at some of it later on, but first let's go back to Reddick's report on autohemotherapy in a population of psychiatric patients:

The Truth Perspective: Churches Behaving Badly: How Religions Succeed or Fail to Prevent Pathocracy

inquisition
Some critics of organized religions argue that religions are the root of all evils. Some of the faithful argue that atheism and secular ideologies like communism or capitalism produce the worst atrocities. But is either side correct? Or are they missing an important piece of the puzzle?

Today on the Truth Perspective we discuss a chapter in Andrew Lobaczewski's Political Ponerology on religion and pathocracy: how religious ideologies get infected with pathological material, which can remain semi-dormant for centuries; how religions can be hijacked by malevolent individuals and groups; how the same pathological influences produce secular systems that then attack the faithful; and how despite their errors, religions still offer the best defense against political and interpersonal evil.

Religion is both our greatest aid against evil, and also - because of its importance - one of the greatest portals for evil to manifest itself. Both sides of the debate are correct, in a sense. Ponerology fills in the holes of our understanding of spirituality and evil, bridging the gap between the two and pointing the way to a reconciliation between the scientific and religious domains, where each has an important role to play.

The Health & Wellness Show: To Booze or Not to Booze?

old drink alcohol age
Alcohol consumption is one of humanity's most socially sanctioned drugs. Humans have been serving up the booze for tens of thousands of years and will surely continue to do so until the end of time with or without the blessing of the established health authorities. At this particular moment in history the medical establishment tends to lean toward advocating a moderate level (whatever that means) of alcohol consumption for its supposed heart healthy benefits. Other health professionals state that there is no safe level of consumption and alcohol's benefits are wildly exaggerated.

Whether you're a teetotaler, a fine wine aficionado or a straight up boozehound join us for this episode of The Health and Wellness Show where we'll discuss the world's favorite drug and if it has any place in the diet of a health conscious person.

Stay tuned, at the end of the show, for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be language in animals.

The Attack on Social Network Gab Proves That Free Speech Was Never Free

"Who Runs Bartertown!?"
- Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
The First Amendment protects your right to say whatever you want free from government prosecution. It does not protect you from saying hateful things on private properties or privately-owned forums without fear of repercussion.

That is the very definition of freedom of association.

Friday's attack by an unhinged, vile piece of human excrement on a Synagogue in Pittsburgh wasn't hours old before real world agendas pushed to the top of the news.
  • Twitter alternative Gab was immediately dropped by PayPal without specific reasons.
  • Then immediately, Gab's latest hosting service unilaterally gave the company a 48-hour termination notice of its contract.
  • This is the second time Gab has had to switch providers this year. They have been denied an app in the iOS store. Google will not allow their Android app to be in the Play Store.
Why is Gab targeted?

Witches, Comets and Planetary Cataclysms

When you think of Halloween, what is the first image that comes to mind? I took a little informal poll among my friends, family and associates. Guess what image came in first? Jack-o-lanterns! Bet you thought I was going to say "witches". Well, I sure thought it would be witches, but they only came in a close second!..

When I think of Halloween, I think of grade-school art projects where we cut out silhouettes of witches to paste onto large yellow moons made of construction paper. The witch was always on a broom with her black dress flying in the wind, accompanied by a black cat sitting on the back of the broom. I wondered even then how the cat managed to stay on and why anybody would think that straddling a broomstick as a seat would be even remotely comfortable.
