NewsReal #23: It's a Trap! The Left vs Right Paradigm

newsreal left right trap
From 'conservatives' vs 'liberals', pro-mass migration vs anti-immigration, Islam vs the West, and even men vs women, Western society appears to be in a state of increasing social conflict.

Beyond the often legitimate rationale for holding these positions lie foundational and deep psychological differences between human beings, but is it possible that 'someone' is deliberately exploiting them, ultimately against the interests of all?

Joe & Niall also discuss US Sec. of State Mike Pompeo's speech in Cairo, in which he announced a brand new US foreign policy for the Middle East. How different is it from the Obama administration's?

The Truth Perspective: You University: The Value and Art of Self-Education

book vortex
© Mike Dale/Alamy
Thousands of books entered the public domain on 1 January.
It starts with a question. How does a car actually work? How can I lose weight and keep it off? What are UFOs? What could I accomplish if I really applied myself? Our curiosity is peaked and we want to know more, but we're not quite sure where to start. If there's no formal education course we can take that has a syllabus all laid out, then what do we do? How do we create a plan that will guide us toward finding answers to our questions and reaching our goals?

Today on the Truth Perspective we discuss "The Science of Self-Learning" by Peter Hollins: how his practical advice for self-learning can be applied to multiple dimensions of personal development, and why self-education is so important. The difference between the reading and regurgitation that is common in schools and real intellectual curiosity. The usefulness of self-explanation in uncovering what we don't know, and how S.M.A.R.T. goals and thoughtful planning can help us learn just about anything.

We also share some of our favorite books from 2018 to hopefully help everyone on their journey of self-education, so join us as we discover how to make learning fun again.

The Health & Wellness Show: Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture: Interview With Linnéa Snyder and James Lovinsky

acupuncture
Today on the Health and Wellness Show, we welcome back to the show Doctors of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Linnéa Snyder (L.Ac. MSTCM) and James Lovinsky (L.Ac. MSTCM).

Linnéa was first drawn to acupuncture after receiving it as a teenager and noticing its widespread effects. Most notably, she loves the way it balances one's nervous-system and can clear emotional build-up without the necessity of attaching or sharing about the feelings or pain. Linnéa is interested in women's health, psycho-emotional disorders and stress induced illnesses. James came upon acupuncture during a very stressful period in his life. After trying several modalities to treat his own stress-induced health concerns, he settled on acupuncture. Upon changing his career and beginning acupuncture school he realized that Chinese medicine offered many treatments that could give patients an alternative to drugs and surgery. James is interested in pain management, digestive disorders and psycho-emotional health.

Linnéa and James practice at their clinic, Opus Total Health, in West Greenwich, RI (Opus Total Health - Its your life... live it in health!). They treat patients from all walks of life with acupuncture, bodywork, Chinese herbal medicine and diet and nutrition therapy.

Join us for a fascinating discussion about acupuncture, Chinese medicine and somatic therapy. And stayed tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be human history from a cat's perspective.

NewsReal #22: France's New Year's Revolution - Trump Battles War Party

newsreal yellow vests trump 2019
Despite the intervention of the holiday season and cold weather, there has been no let-up from the Gilets Jaunes protesters in France. Incredible scenes from 'Acte VIII' of the protest movement this weekend confirm just how serious the French population is about fundamentally changing the country's political order.

In this episode of NewsReal, Joe & Niall bring you up to speed on the tense stand-off between people and power in France. They also discuss the false choice of believing either that Muslims are 'evil', or that Muslim migrants should be welcomed en masse with open arms.

Finally, they recap US president Trump's battles with the Neverending-War Party over the holidays, specifically his moves to withdraw American troops from Syria and Afghanistan, and the fits of rage this sent 'leftist' Never-Trumpers into...

The Truth Perspective: The Myth of Symptoms: Why Most People Are Actually Mentally Ill

Anxiety
For many people the term mental health is synonymous with the absence of symptoms. With this outlook our mental health rests in positive emotion, our ability to cope, maintain emotional balance, and adjust to the world and society. Viewing mental health in such a way leaves little room for good or evil, high or low, or better or worse ways of adjusting, or of experiencing certain symptoms. So what would a psychology of value look like, and how mentally healthy are we when viewed through that psychology? These questions were the subject of Kazimierz Dabrowski's formidable intellect over the course of his entire career.

So join us today, on the Truth Perspective, as we use Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration to explore and add real depth to the concept of mental health, also utilizing insights gained from our discussions on the hypnotic power of the crowd, Paul and the Stoics, and experiments into the nature of consciousness, today we're taking a new look at what mental health really is for us in this crazy, upside-down world.

The Health & Wellness Show: IV Vitamin C: The Miracle Cure You're Not Supposed to Know About

Vitamin-C-Infusionen
© Yuliya/fotolia.com
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient obtained from food and supplements. It is frequently the go-to supplement used for viral infections such as the common cold and flu. One downside with oral vitamin C supplementation is that only a small percentage is absorbed by the body and large doses can cause gastrointestinal upset making its efficacy hit or miss. Enter IV (intravenous) vitamin C. This master antioxidant can be absorbed at 100% when given IV. Vitamin C given by this route is not just effective for viral and bacterial illnesses but can also be used to treat a wide range of ailments not limited to Lyme Disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, burns, wounds and various types of cancer -- yes, Cancer -- thought to have a poor prognosis.

Vitamin C has a long track record of being beneficial to one's health so why isn't it used in every hospital in the world? It's cheap and effective with few side effects but it is still seen as a 'fringe' treatment and its use is actively blocked by mainstream medical professionals.

Join us for this episode of The Health and Wellness Show where we'll discuss this miracle molecule and why it should become one of the main tools in your health arsenal. Also, stay tuned at the end of the show for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be excessive licking or grooming in cats.

NewsReal: Yellow Vest Protests, Brexit Farce - Revolutionary Climate in Western Europe?

newsreal yellow vests brexit
Is France going through revolution 2.0? La Terreur followed in the wake of the 1789 French revolution, so is last week's extraordinary coincidence of an 'ISIS/Islamist terror attack' at a critical moment in the French state's handling of the Gilets Jaunes' popular insurrection an indicator of what's likely to happen next? History may not repeat, Mark Twain said, but it sure rhymes.

Speaking of extraordinary coincidences, what is up with both France and the UK undergoing profound national crises at the same time? The Brexit chaos looks like its settling on the prediction we made two years ago: they're going to re-run the in/out referendum (then properly rig the result this time).

In this episode of NewsReal, Joe & Niall discuss the brewing revolution in western Europe, the latest Russiagate nothing-burger, and the American government's 'new' strategy for countering Russia and China in Africa.

The Health & Wellness Show: Water, Water Everywhere But Not a Drop to Drink

Students Karen Vallejo (background) and Ashley Garcia (foreground) examine triclosan extracts from plant tissues.
Water is the transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans. It also happens to be the main constituent fluid of most living organisms and an absolutely essential part of life. No known life form, including humans, can possibly survive without it. But what happens when our water becomes so polluted it's actually less harmful to go without?

Heavy metals, fracking chemicals, pharmaceutical waste, industrial pollutants, microplastics, agricultural chemicals, dangerous micro-organisms - it seems there's no limit to the amount of toxic stuff we find in our water. Gone are the days of pristine streams and clean lakes you could directly drink from. Now we need complicated filter systems just to get a drinkable glass of what we all need to live. And we in the modernized world are the lucky ones!

Join us on this episode of The Health and Wellness Show as we talk about this vital resource that the human race has managed to mess up for the entire planet. Is there a way out of this madness?

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, where she talks about how to get your cat to drink more water.

NewsReal: Mass Immigration And Climate Change: A Perfect Storm

newsreal climate migration
There are two major grievances that are motivating the ongoing 'Gilets Jaunes' protests in France (and similar protests in other European countries over the past few years). One is the the specter of mass immigration - 'accidentally' inflated by 17 years of the Global War on Terror - and the other is French and EU government policies aimed at 'preventing climate change'.

In their arrogance, however, European elites have decided to double down on these massively unpopular polices by:

(a) encouraging mass migration into Europe - with Macron currently in Morocco where he will sign the UN Compact on Migration, where signatory states are required to formalize and legalize structures for accepting and financing large numbers of migrants, and (b) implementing an EU/globalist 'ecology tax'.

So the question is: what do climate/earth changes and mass migration have in common, and what do governments know that they are not telling the people?

On this week's NewsReal with Joe & Niall, we reveal why the elites' view of the people and the people's view of the elites are so out of sync, and why the discrepancy is signalling an impending showdown of, literally, biblical proportions.
