Resignation of Bolivia's Evo Morales Was No Victory for Democracy, but a US-Sponsored Coup

Bolivia coup
Evo Morales, an indigenous leader who bucked the IMF and condemned US imperialism, has been pressured by the military to resign after winning an election. Yet Washington calls this blatant coup in Bolivia a victory for democracy?

Morales was re-elected as Bolivia's president on October 20. The coup-backing Organization of American States (OAS) wasn't pleased and went ahead and interfered in the electoral process of a sovereign nation - as the US itself does so well - issuing a report that the vote result wasn't satisfactory.The heavy funding from the US surely has no influence on OAS policies...

In any case, on November 10, President Morales first announced a new election. Later that day, he announced his resignation, naming as reason the recent brutality of Bolivia's right-wing opposition, including "kidnapping and mistreating" families of indigenous leaders and burning down the homes of public officials.
"I resign from my position as president so that (Carlos) Mesa and (Luis Fernando) Camacho do not continue to persecute socialist leaders."
Morales was clear that his move was solely due to the violence incited opposition leaders. However, it soon became clear that this was a coup, not a resignation.

O:H header
It's time again for another of our 'In the News' (ITN) shows, where the Objective:Health hosts weigh in on some of the headlines showing up in our feeds in the world of health.

We cover a lot this week: A new study showing children who live closer to fast food joints are more likely to be obese (duh); genetic testing shows many vaccines contain aborted fetal cells; Tylenol taken by pregnant women may cause autism, ADHD or other developmental issues; chemicals in consumer products lead to kids with lower IQs; a not-in-the-least-bit shocking study finds previous studies showing red meat is bad for you were all really crappy studies; and finally, Scientific American, the mainstream of the mainstream science publications, actually publishes an article suggesting 5G may not be safe.

Join us for our hot, and not so hot, takes on the latest in health news.

British State Has Stolen Thousands of Children From Families it Deems 'Potential Risk' - Hundreds of Pregnant Women Fleeing UK Shores


Comment: This is completely outrageous.



'Punishing people for crime they have not committed is wrong', campaigner insists

adoptions children
A British businessman who lives in France is one of several people who regularly help women to flee the UK to give birth abroad and keep their babies.

Ian Josephs told Connexion he got involved after learning of a woman's case while he was a county councillor in Kent.

He receives several calls a day after women contact him through his website (forced-adoption.com). He gives advice and pays for the mothers to leave the UK.

They mainly travel to France or Spain. Ireland is another destination.

Mr Josephs, 87, said:
"Every woman should be given the chance to raise her child. While they are still pregnant, they can leave the country. The UK system is totally unfair: it is based on what may potentially happen in the future. In what other circumstances is someone judged for a crime they have not committed? People can't believe it if I say one reason given for a child to be removed is a potential future risk of emotional abuse. People say I may be helping people who go on to abuse a child but we are talking about predictions. The women cannot hide their birth in the new country and they enter into the system there. They don't go off the radar."



Comment: He is making this up, surely?


Comment: A SOTT commenter recently complained that we spend too much time publishing stories about 'social engineering' and its consequences in the UK.

Evidently, that country is 'further down the road' of said social engineering.

Here's the French TV documentary mentioned above:

Stolen Children of England, Part 1


Stolen Children of England, Part 2


And here's a talk about this abomination by the above-mentioned activist, Ian Josephs:


Check out Josephs' website, forced-adoption.com, where he lays out what has been happening in the UK for years, and what parents can do about it.

This madness was apparently started under the Blair regime and has now grown into a billion £ market. Ostensibly, it was done to 'protect' children from harmful family situations, but that was just the cover for something completely different. As Josephs explains in his video talk, the victims aren't necessarily the poorest - the fostering industry targets the most vulnerable.

In 2015, RT UK picked up the scent and published the following documentary, which tells the stories of many families' efforts - some successful, the vast majority not - to get their children back from the state and whichever strangers it sold them off to...

The Aryan Christ - Jung, Hitler And Today's Postmodernist Insanity

Road to hell
© Man on the Silver Mountain
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions
The movement that brought Hitler into power did not happen in a vacuum, nor was it an anomaly of history. It may have sprung up like wildfire, but the ground was set for him long before. The same could be said for the sudden surge in the popularity of an equally radical ideology: postmodernism. In trying to better understand the nature of these two ideologies, I was indirectly encouraged to read a few books on Carl Jung and Hitler. While Hitler and Jung aren't exactly common bedfellows, a lot can be learned from the cultural background that each shared and how that acted as a catalyst for their ideas.

The first was a book by Milton Mayer written in 1955 called 'They Thought They Were Free: The Germans' where Mayer attempts to understand what caused ordinary Germans, en masse, to follow Hitler and the Nazi movement. This was followed by Richard Noll's book 'The Aryan Christ: The secret Life of Carl Jung', and lastly 'The Psychopathic God: Adolf Hitler' by Robert Waite.

The following is an attempt to summarize the above books while presenting a rather shocking and little-known historical account of Carl Jung and how someone who is considered one of the most influential psychiatrists of the 20th century could be even remotely connected with someone as universally despised as Adolf Hitler.

MindMatters: Meaning in Chaos: Exploring Jordan Peterson's Maps of Meaning (Chapter 2)

maps of meaning
Dr. Jordan Peterson's 1999 classic Maps of Meaning contains much the raw material for his more recent lectures and writing. While a dense read at times, it's worth the effort. On this episode of MindMatters we take a look at the first sections in Chapter 2, which explore the universals of human experience: the unbearable present, the encounter with chaos, and its transformation into the ideal future.

With examples from everyday life and neuropsychology, Peterson shows how we are hardwired to respond to novelty, constantly comparing our present state with our ideal future - however vague our notion of it may be. And how the inescapable presence of chaos and novelty mean we must constantly adapt our goals and the steps we take to reach them, constantly learning in the process and constantly transforming the present into the future.

For a discussion on the Introduction and Chapter 1, see:

An Obituary to Reality and Truth in the Western World

rip common sense

Societies’ that base their foundations on subjective facts and lies have no legs to stand on
During the course of my life I have watched the Western World abandon all of the values that made it successful. Despite all its crimes, and they are many, the Western World succeeded. Everyone wanted to be part of it, and it will be the demise of the Russians that they still do.

The Western World succeeded, because it believed in objective truth and searched for it. This resulted in scientific and technological discoveries, in architectural and artistic beauty, and in brilliant literature that educated the educatable into the human condition.

But objective truth is no longer acceptable in the Western Woke World, because it is contrary to the woke ideologies, such as there is no difference between men and women, that there are many genders and that men and women can be born into the wrong bodies, that hurt feelings are more important than empirical facts, that many subjects are not subject to examination or debate, because they offend emotive beliefs of feminists, people of color, Jews, the new transgendered species, and whoever else can make a claim of victimhood.

Everyone can claim to be a victim except white male heterosexuals. They are branded "exploiters" of everyone else, and they are unable to get out of this trap. In the Western World white heterosexual males face the same fate as the bourgeoisie under Lenin. A white heterosexual male who defends himself or his fellows is immediately branded a misogynist or a white supremacist. Increasingly courts treat white heterosexual males as if they are members of a criminal class.

We now live in a world in which a self-declared "victim" can block truth, because truth offends them. The offended are able to get the truth-teller fired and removed from employment. His crime is that he exercised free speech. Today free speech is the most sure path to self-destruction for a white heterosexual male.

Comment: In this day and age, we have been saturated with lies in every single aspect of life: from politics to economics, from education to science, from justice to arts and climate...

And when thinking, feeling people with a conscience are force-fed so many lies, their unconscious will rebel against it and they will act out in ways that aim towards actual destruction. And that's what we see in the recent protests that are happening around the world:

World in Flames: Why Are Protests Raging Around The Globe?

Russiagate is a Cult, Complete with Unquestionable Doctrine, Dissent-Shaming, and Us-vs-Them Cosmology

Americans still clinging to the idea that their candidate lost the 2016 election because of meddling by the Russian state have much in common with victims of brainwashing cults. For them, doctrine has eclipsed reality.

Russiagate true believers are already screaming about foreign interference in the 2020 election and it hasn't even happened yet. Months after the long-awaited special counsel's report failed to serve up the promised evidence of "Russian collusion," they have held fast to their conviction that President Donald Trump is a Russian asset placed in office by Vladimir Putin, and the intelligence agencies that serve as their oracles have predicted further "meddling" will occur to keep him in office. Indeed, their beliefs only grow stronger the more contrary evidence is presented, to the point where they have more in common with a cult than any other political group.

Russiagaters are back in the headlines after the Justice Department, the Pentagon, and a cluster of intelligence agencies released a joint statement on "ensuring security" for the 2020 elections on Tuesday. But to be fair, they never really left. Just last month, they were pearl-clutching about Russians on Facebook targeting Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden, and before that, it was a non-story about Trump supposedly telling Russian officials he wasn't concerned about the (still-unproven, but who's counting) Russian interference in the 2016 election.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - October 2019: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

sott earth changes
Fire in the sky! Meteor/fireball sightings and barely detected asteroid flybys surely got our attention this past month. What is the cosmos trying to tell us?

Ireland, Scotland, Portugal, US, Canada, and China were witness to some of the most important meteor sightings in October, while NASA was put to shame by so many undetected NEOs, making it clear that we are defenseless against a possible 'out of the blue' hit by one of these rocks.

Severe storms and floods continued to wreak havoc around the world, leaving a trail of destruction in Saudi Arabia, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, India, Japan and Spain.

Hurricane season continued with Japan seeing its strongest storm in 60 years with the arrival of super-typhoon Hagibis and Korea suffering the effects of typhoon Mitag. The UK and Ireland also saw torrential rains in advance of, and in the aftermath of, hurricane Lorenzo, which severely damaged the Azores on its path northward.

In the Philippines, several were killed and many injured as the country was hit by not one, but three earthquakes registering over M6 in a two week period.

Snow in October is now becoming the norm. So much for less ice at the poles, dying polar bears, and record heat. October left a month's worth of snow in a single day in the Southern Yukon; 10 inches of snow in Washington; unexpected cold and heavy snow in Texas as well as parts of Russia and Canada... and it's still Autumn.

Richard Dawkins and Half a Wing

Dawkins evolution

Evolution in progress. You are now obsolete and awaiting removal by natural selection.
What good is half a wing? That is the question. If wings evolved step by step on some wingless species, there had to be half a wing at some point, so we might ask this question. In fact, we might ask lots of questions, because nothing about Darwinian evolution really makes sense, but this one is traditional. So let's ask, what good is half a wing? And who could enlighten us better than Richard Dawkins, the king of evolutionary explanations. He spoke thus in his highly delusional book The God Delusion:
"Half a wing is indeed not as good as a whole wing, but it is certainly better than no wing at all. Half a wing could save your life by easing your fall from a tree of a certain height. And 51 per cent of a wing could save you if you fall from a slightly taller tree. Whatever fraction of a wing you have, there is a fall from which it will save your life where a slightly smaller winglet would not. The thought experiment of trees of different height, from which one might fall, is just one way to see, in theory, that there must be a smooth gradient of advantage all the way from 1 per cent of a wing to 100 per cent."
If Richard Dawkins had 1% of a wing, he'd be really happy to have such a magnificent evolutionary advantage. He could fall from 1cm higher than you without dying. His offspring would fill the earth, and we would all die out. Natural selection would somehow make sure of that. 1,000 generations later, somebody would evolve 2% of a wing, and the one-percenters would die out because there's no way they could compete with 2% of a wing. This has to happen very slowly and gradually but never leave any incriminating evidence in the fossil record. It's evolution, baby!

Objective:Health #35 - Organic Hemp Farming and More with Dave & Erica of Highlander CBD Farms

O:H header
The consequences of the ongoing misguided "war on drugs" have been devastating on multiple fronts not the least of which is the lack of research into actual benefits. On the last episode of Objective:Health we looked at the new research being done on psychedelic drugs to help with a whole range of mental issues. This week, we shift our focus to cannabinoids, better known as CBD, a powerful medicinal from the marijuana plant.

Joining us today are our regular O:H host Erica and her husband Dave who will be telling us all about their recent venture: Highlander CBD Farm. We discuss the healing potential of CBD and the multiple conditions it can help address, as well as getting into the differences between CBD and THC and the healing potential of both. We also talk about the nightmare Dave and Erica are going through trying to navigate the bureaucracy of constantly changing regulations on the federal and state levels. It sometimes feels like one step forward, two steps back!

Tune in for this interesting show where we talk about all things CBD!
