(TibetanReview.net, Dec21, 2017) – Some 30,000 cases of hydatid disease (Echinococcosis), a fatal parasitic tapeworm disease, have been found in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) following a screening of around 3 million people, reported China’s official Xinhua news agency Dec 20. It said the disease leads to death if left untreated.
The report said the screening involved more than 800 medical teams consisting of over 3,000 medical workers from TAR and 500 experts from China sent to villages in 74 counties and districts of the region.
The report said the regional government will provide surgery and other forms of medical treatment to those suffering from the serious parasitic disease, caused by the larval stage of the dog tapeworm.
The disease is said to mainly affect herding areas in Gansu, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Qinghai, Sichuan, TAR and Xinjiang.
The report cited Wang Yunting, director of the TAR health and family planning commission, as saying the regional government’s aim was to control the disease by 2020.
Every inch of creativity and thought forward that does not support the existing lame and fake political and social platform is deliberately being decimated bit by bit until we are so’ dumbmified’ we just stop fighting.
Example: WordPress was, is, the best word processor ever and it was free. Now, it will cost you a few dollars per month to have a blog. Think about this for a second. We will be charged for creating and thinking. I hate crap capitalism.
The dude who started WP as a “Free source software” is now a billionaire. So why does he allow this to happen? This was not his dream. He was eaten alive and given wealth in exchange for his compliance?
Example: Many videos on YouTube have been censored and deleted. Many others you cannot embed on a post because they are controversial or the original owners smell a buck. It’s come down to his pathetic level of pettiness where people are fighting over pennies.
So far so good, say the ruling Masters of the Universe in this particular matrix.
No wonder I love the idea of karma. You kind of have to think in eons of time. Evolution is another dimension altogether.
And these little pathetic amoebas who don’t understand we are all in this together will be excluded from the future genetic gene pool. For the price of fame, a few coins, and a pic on Facebook?
Eternity is a bitch.
I am, simply speaking, shattered:
While we are here, under our thumb every evil corporation, meaning a bunch of self-deluded humanoids, that think they can control us without impunity. Remember what happens to Those who don’t remember history mofos.
I actually feel sorry for this bastard. The fault is not his but the system that made him. I blame his parents, his kindergarten teachers, and all those who gave him a false belief system.

Toronto police Const. James Forcillo, who was convicted of attempted murder in the 2013 shooting death of Sammy Yatim, has been charged with perjury and attempting to obstruct justice.
The charges come as a result of breach of bail allegations by the province’s Special Investigations Unit, which sparked a separate investigation by the Toronto Police Service’s professional standards unit, according to the police force.
Last year, the 34-year-old Forcillo was sentenced to six years in prison for shooting 18-year-old Yatim on a streetcar.
Forcillo had been under house arrest as a condition of his bail while he appealed the conviction, but the provincial watchdog’s investigation alleged Forcillo had been living at a different address than that listed in his bail conditions, a spokesperson for the professional standards unit told CBC News.
The horrific behavior of the American police state has become so overt that it has garnered international attention. The United Nations is now calling for an investigation into multiple departments for the use of excessive force via tasers which they are finally referring to as “torture.”
The Free Thought Project has reported on countless incidents in which police officers in America have been captured on video torturing individuals—many of them restrained in handcuffs or chairs—with tasers. While we have long been referring to this practice as “torture,” the media at large has refused to do so which has allowed it to progress to its current horrifying state. However, it now appears that this is all changing.
Thanks to a recent report out of Reuters, which included footage of 22 incidents in four jails—Franklin County, Ohio; Franklin County, Arkansas; McCurtain County, Oklahoma; and Cheatham County, Tennessee—the U.N. special rapporteur on torture has finally acknowledged the abuse.
According to Reuters, after reviewing footage of jail incidents obtained by Reuters, Nils Melzer said the “grave abuse” from Taser use in some U.S. jails violated the United Nations’ prohibition on cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment and, in some cases, amounted to torture.
The videos of these incidents are so disturbing that they can no longer be swept under the rug.
“I think it’s good that we’ve got international oversight of this issue,” Attorney Ben Raybin said of the U.N. citation. “I think excessive force in our jails and prisons is a significant issue that often goes overlooked.
“Taser devices…have a great ability to be overused and misused, and I think having this oversight is an important (part) in improving how people are treated by law enforcement.”
Almost as equally disturbing as the videos is the fact that the officers in most of these cases have never faced discipline despite millions of dollars being paid out in lawsuits. In fact, one of the cops seen torturing a handcuffed, mentally ill man has been promoted to commander of the corrections center.
One of the jails in question happens to be the Cheatham County Jail in Tennessee. As TFTP reported at the time, in an extremely disturbing video, Cheatham County Sheriff’s Deputies are seen holding 18-year-old Jordan Norris down with a gag while another deputy sadistically and repeatedly deploys the taser. Naturally, Norris squirmed as 50,000 volts ran through his body. His movement seemed to provoke the deputies who responded with more taser strikes.
At one part in the video, you can hear a deputy tell Norris, “I’ll keep doing that until I run out of batteries.”
Norris said he remembered deputies asking him, “Do you want me to do it again? We got a whole bunch of batteries we can drain into you pretty much. We will do it over and over until we have no more.”
When Norris was released from prison, he was covered in burn marks from the taser. Somehow he made it through the torture without his heart stopping and went on to file a lawsuit against the deputies.
In another disturbing video, deputies in Columbus, Ohio were seen on video torturing an innocent pregnant woman with a taser for not removing her tongue ring fast enough.
“Take the tongue ring out,” Deputy Shawnda Arnold said. However, the victim, Martini Smith was struggling as her hands had been cuffed behind her for six hours and her numb fingers couldn’t grip the stud to unscrew it. She pleaded with police to get her a paper towel so she could get traction on the ring, but they refused.
“I will tase you!” barked corporal Matthew Stice.
“I just want to go to sleep,” Smith cried.
Instead of getting the helpless pregnant woman a paper towel to help her remove the tongue ring, Stice barked his warning again and then shot the taser directly into Smith’s bare chest.
The surge of debilitating electricity caused the mother to be to collapse into the concrete wall and then to the floor. Smith cried out in agony, gasping as she tried to maintain a bit of her humanity while being tortured—half-naked—by a male cop.
“Why did you Tase me?” she moaned. “I wasn’t harming nobody. I can’t just take it out.”
Just five days later, Smith would have a miscarriage. She had been wrongfully arrested for defending herself against her abusive boyfriend. She was entirely innocent.
Norris and Smith are just two people on a long list of others who’ve been inhumanely tortured by those sworn to protect and serve. The fact that the UN has had to get involved shows just how out of hand this problem has gotten.
Sadly, however, even though the UN claims it is going to investigate, their history in doing so indicates that not much will change. In 2014, as TFTP reported at the time, the UN stepped in during the protests in Ferguson, MO in which the military police state reared its ugly head. However, very little happened as a result of the UN attention.
Until the officers themselves are held accountable for their actions, we can expect to see more mentally ill men, pregnant women, and completely restrained teenagers endure torture in the land of the free.
But, if you are the president of the United States, or a doofus politician that he approves of, then everything is OK.
We all have been 14 year-old silly girls who don’t realize the consequences of our actions, but no worries, moronic politicians, mostly males, know way better what to do.
Who wants to bet that every single one of these male politicians behind this are more than likely to think there is nothing wrong with having sex with a 14 year-old anyway? Hypocrites of the highest kind.
Dear Kim Yung, when you start the bombing can you start with Minnesota?
The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota (ACLU-MN) is calling on Rice County juvenile court to throw out felony child pornography charges against a 14-year-old girl known only as “Jane Doe,” according to KSTP-TV.
Doe admits to sending a sexually explicit selfie to a boy she met at school. She used the social media app Snapchat, but the boy shared the photo more widely, according to court documents cited by KSTP. The boy is also being charged.
“Sexting is common among teens at my school,” Doe said in a statement released by ACLU-MN, “and we shouldn’t face charges for doing it. I don’t want anyone else to go through what I’m going through.”
ACLU legal director Teresa Nelson, who’s defending Doe, says the girl’s family is “upset,” as “this could have a devastating effect on her life,” KSTP reported.
“The purpose of the law is to protect people who are victimized, to protect children who are victimized,” Nelson said. “We don’t have a victim in this case. She was not coerced. She was not creating child pornography of someone else.”
State law, however, does not seem to recognize the difference between a child or minor photographing themselves sexually for private use, versus, being used by someone else for pornographic purposes.
Rice County Attorney John Fossum, who is prosecuting the case, said she will not comment on cases involving juveniles.
The ACLU-MN claims Doe “cannot criminally use or victimize herself” by sending a selfie. In other words, they’re trying a no victim, no crime defense.
“I think this is a teachable moment for educators, for parents, to talk to her about the consequences,” Nelson said. “It’s a cautionary tale, and probably a call to action for the legislature to update our law to make it clear that, in this situation, kids shouldn’t be charged with felonies for creating material of themselves that they share.”
JEA: Let’s start with your book, Putin’s Praetorians: Confessions of the Top Kremlin Trolls. In a chapter written by Charles Bausman, it states:
“Russia is an incomparably fascinating, deep, wonderful civilization, one of the great world civilizations, with a fantastic wealth of ideas, culture, and Christian spirituality. The truth is that it is, and was, routinely smeared by its enemies, and its true nature is barely understood in the West.”
Can you put some flesh in the bone of that statement for us?
PB: Charles has studied many years to gain a scholarly understanding of Russia and her culture. History verifies his apt reflections here, and I can only add this. Most people do not understand that Russia is still a vast empire in the geographic, cultural, and strategic sense. Like all great empires/civilizations she is also under constant internal and external stress, and subject to various expansion and contraction fluctuations.
It is because Russia is an empire, and because of the existent potential, that nations like Britain and the United States have sought to “contain” her. And since the fall of the Soviet Union the mission of the liberal order in the west has been to break up what remains of this empire.
JEA: Bausman again states:
“It is fair to say that the average Westerner, even the average highly-educated one, has a very faulty and slanted knowledge of Russia, tainted as it has been now for three centuries of outright hostility. I see it again and again when talking to highly educated and fair-minded people, especially older ones.”
Why is that? Would you attribute this to media disinformation?
PB: The media and information “bubble” that westerners live under is not an overnight construct. The “reality” created for the public is not simply a newspaper, radio or TV fabrication, either. Even at the local level, in the church or at the factory, the idea of exceptionalism permeates western societies.
It is the essence of this false exceptionalism that powers what you would call Russophobia. The same modus also powers ultra-capitalism and the unsustainable democracies we’ve created.
JEA: Bausman: “Perhaps we are on the cusp of a new era, when observers can write and think about Russia with a new eye, and begin to understand her majesty and promise, as Russia is only now beginning to do herself. She truly has much to offer the world, in knowledge, wisdom, and spirituality…”
One of the most cogent scholars who has been doing exactly that for the past ten years or so is Stephen F. Cohen. Yet he has been deliberately demonized as an intellectual outcast and the Kremlin’s puppet. Is the West ready to accept the truth about Russia?
PB: People in the west cannot deconstruct their existence so easily. The tidy, quaint, and safe little walled garden in which we Americans have lived for decades is the reality. People like the so-called “Kremlin trolls” in this book are so misunderstood. I can tell you that each of them has gone through this “deconstruct” in order to be able to see the truth of these matters. I know Charles Bausman has. I imagine that Stephen Cohen has. And I know for certain that I have.
For the west to embrace Russia as a friend and partner a transition is necessary. We saw this modern transition come to a halt when the hegemony began regime change in Libya, Ukraine, and then Syria. We saw the “preparation” for normality destroyed when the Sochi Olympics were trashed by the liberal world order in February 2014.
JEA: Have you stumbled upon the writing of Masha Gessen? She is one of the most dishonest people I have ever encountered when it comes to Russia. She also cannot put two coherent thoughts together. I have discussed some of her writings in the past.
PB: I wrote a story about Gessen, which is about to be published. Ordinarily, I shun harsh personal criticisms of such individuals, but this woman is an especially onerous and dangerous case. Suffice it to say she is “damaged goods”, or someone a psychologist might refer to as irrational or “unbalanced” – I would not consider anything she says credible.
Gessen’s agenda is entirely wrapped around her gayness and the LGBT empowerment agenda. Like the ousted Russia oligarchs, the western hegemons see her influence in this community as a weapon. This is the open book of Masha Gessen.
JEA: You are absolutely right on target here. What frustrates me most about these issues is that these people don’t seem to understand elementary logic. Let me give you one example. Gessen once posited the claim that “It’s a no brainer that gays have the right to marry.” In the very next breath, she magically asserted: “I also think equally that the institution of marriage should not exist.”
So, which is it? She found herself in a torrent of contradictions because she is operating under a wicked ideology which doesn’t allow her to clear her head. What’s your take here?
BP: Once again, if you examine Gessen’s narrative with an open mind you see she is one big contradiction. The woman has an identity crisis, a loyalty crisis, a sexual identity crisis, and a paranoid delusion the mainstream liberal media broadcasts like an air raid siren.
Gessen is presented as a “New Russia” authority on comedy shows, at the Council of Foreign Relations, on PBS, in the New York Times, as if she is the great Karnak of soothsaying Russia experts. She is actually nothing of the kind. She is a tool with a mission to help destroy the traditional values of Russia, and to assist in the completed destruction of western traditions such as the institution of marriage. Anyone who cannot see this is in danger of becoming damaged goods just like Gessen. This is my honest take.
JEA: I again completely agree with you here. I remember how she intellectually humiliated herself when she hopelessly tried to defend the Pussy Riot, the Trotskyite group whose purpose was to desensitize Russia. We’ll probably discuss this later, when your article on Gessen is published.
New York City — The Trump administration received a concerted middle finger from much of the rest of the world on Thursday when it learned very publicly that its longstanding bullying tactics may be losing their effectiveness. From the New York Times:
“In a collective act of defiance toward Washington, the General Assembly voted 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions, to demand that the United States rescind its Dec. 6 declaration on Jerusalem, the contested holy city.”
The United Nations resolution, drafted by Turkey and Yemen, was the second condemning Trump’s decision to upend decades’ worth of internationally recognized policy on the hornet’s nest that is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The first resolution, written by Egypt, went before the fifteen-member U.N. Security Council on December 18. United States delegate Nikki Haley vetoed the draft while all fourteen other member nations voted in favor of it.
It was Haley, in a letter sent to U.N. member nations on Tuesday, who fanned the flames of what was already a controversial decision — which includes moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — on the part of the Trump administration. She wrote that the president would be watching Thursday’s vote “carefully” and that he’d “requested I report back on those countries who voted against us.”
She echoed the warning on Wednesday via Twitter, claiming the embassy move was “the will of the American ppl” and that the U.S. would be “taking names” of those who stand against the decision.
Trump praised Haley’s effort at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday. This was also when he made the threat to cut off financial assistance to nations opposing the will of the United States:
“I like the message that Nikki sent yesterday at the United Nations, for all of these nations that take our money and then they vote against us at the Security Council, or they vote against us potentially at the assembly. They take hundreds of millions of dollars and even billions of dollars and then they vote against us, well, we’re watching those votes. Let ’em vote against us. We’ll save a lot. We don’t care.”
Following Thursday’s lopsided vote, a defeated Haley said the U.S. would “remember this day” on which it was “singled out for attack in the General Assembly.” Continuing, Haley reiterated her president’s position, saying the administration wouldn’t forget the affront when it was “called upon once again to make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations.”
But it was precisely this threatening tone that rubbed so many people the wrong way in the first place, and some took the opportunity to speak on the subject once the vote had been tallied.
“The world is not for sale,” said Venezuela’s representative to the U.N., Samuel Moncada Acosta, adding that U.S. threats “imperil global peace.”
Palestinian foreign minister Riad Malki produced a comparable sentiment, stating that Palestine “will not be threatened” and that the Trump administration, with its action regarding Jerusalem, is “ignoring the dangerous repercussions of its decision.”
Palestinian ambassador Riyad Mansour questioned the motivations behind the U.S. decision itself:
“What does this decision serve? It serves the Israeli government in implementing its colonial plans. It serves the powers of extremism.”
Mansour then highlighted that even stalwart U.S. allies such as Britain and France voted in favor of the resolution.
“Does the United States not wonder why it stands isolated,” he asked, “and why even its closest allies couldn’t turn a blind eye to this decision?”
Fittingly, in his comments, the foreign minister of Turkey — one of the two drafters of the resolution — used the word that best sums up the U.S. strategy to get countries to play ball on the vote: bullying.
Calling Trump’s decision on Jerusalem “an outrageous assault to all universal values,” Mevlut Cavusoglu vocalized what many appeared to be thinking.
“This is bullying,” he said. “We will not be intimidated.” Then, addressing the U.S. directly, he added: “You can be strong, but this doesn’t make you right.”
Despite such unified opposition, the Trump administration remains resolute. Nikki Haley has already rejected the U.N. vote and said that plans regarding Jerusalem, including moving the U.S. embassy there, will go forward as scheduled.
Putin is a chess player. He can wait until his opponent plays foolishly and self-destroys. All there is to do is …nothing. What do we expect from the USA’s massive spread of military bases all over the world? And this at a time where its total infrastructure is falling apart. Bring your troops home America. No one appointed you as the world police.
Moscow is not seeking to get involved in a “pointless” new arms race, and will stick to “smart decisions” to strengthen its defensive capabilities, Putin said on Friday during an annual extended meeting of the Defense Ministry board.
“Intelligence, brains, discipline and organization” must be the cornerstones of the country’s military doctrine, the Russian leader said.
The last thing that Russia needs is an arms race that would “drain” its economy, and Moscow sure does not want that “in any scenario,” Putin pointed out.
“There is something else that we take into consideration – and I am speaking without irony – we rely on our peaceful foreign policy. That’s crucial, since we don’t need countless bases all over the world, we are not seeking to play the role of the world gendarme – we do not need that,” Putin stated.
Russia is set to scale down its military budget after the surge it experienced back in 2016. “Next year it will be some 2.8 percent of GDP. It will even slowly decrease further,” Putin explained.
The president also touched upon the prospects of the country’s military development in the future. Russia must be among the leaders of building a “new generation army,” implementing cutting-edge technologies, he said. In certain fields, Russia even must be an “absolute leader” to bolster defensive capabilities and ensure the safety of the country. New technological tendencies must not only be “considered” but become a foundation for “military planning and building,” he stressed.
Homo sapiens is estimated to have appeared some 200,000 years ago, emerging from the African savannah only about sixty thousand years ago. It wasn’t until the early twentieth century that he came to believe that he should put an end to war, but in the country most able, materially, to lead the way, those efforts appear to have lasted less than a hundred years.
When America’s forefathers landed in the New World in 1620, they did not create a democracy, but were lead by an autocratic churchman, William Bradford, under the terms of a ‘compact’ to:“remain loyal subjects to King James, despite their need for self-governance; live in accordance with the Christian faith, creating one society and work together to further it, creating and enacting laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions and offices for the good of the colony, and to abide by those laws.”
Throwing off their king, the Pilgrims bowed only to God. Inevitably, some rose above others, however, the colonists did not begin to think in terms of democracy until one hundred and fifty years later, when Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. By that time, Europe having produced Voltaire, Hume, Rousseau, Diderot, Kant, the emphasis was on the requirement that individuals — through a democratic process — approve of the power held over them. A contemporary, Adam Smith, believed that the thriving of each would ensure the well-being of all.
In the following century, Smith’s notion having failed to be proven correct, Hegel, Feuerbach, Darwin, Marx, Engels and Nietzsche, claimed that the role of government, beyond maintaining security, was to ensure the welfare of each citizen. These conflicting certainties have become central to the modern era, including in the standoff between Sunni Arabia and Shia Iran.
Although the Soviet Union tried to ensure economic equality, it expired almost a generation ago. Mao morphed into Xi, and liberalism too, acquired a ‘new’ form, taking itself global. Mean-while, earlier concerns that humans were becoming slaves to their inventions were followed by evidence that they had become the victims of money, transformed into ever more sophisticated arms, as war became a superb money-machine — inevitably followed by the equally wealth-generating reconstruction of war-ravaged nations.
Americans are well aware that the election to the White House of a crafty businessman marked the ultimate failure of democracy, (even if they blame the Russians). But it is only a year later that a few commentators are waking up to the fact that the new president wants to substitute personal deals for war-making. An astute friend of mine said months ago that the reason why Washington cannot figure out what to do about President Trump is that it assumes he is playing football, when in reality he is playing baseball, whose rules are different. (Any two games could be mentioned, however, the irony is that football is a violent sport compared to baseball, and Trump doesn’t see the need for violence in order to make deals, even if, when taunted by Kim Jong Un, he cannot resist bragging about America’s destructive capabilities.)
With the most powerful nation ever to have existed failing to shed the foundational mistrust of everything foreign that began with the Pilgrims, breaches of the international peace became increasingly lethal, making humanity truly desperate to end wars, yet powerless to do so. Claims of Moscow’s so-called ‘bad behavior’ allow the US to brand it as an enemy, when in fact what we are witnessing is America’s determination to remain international top dog. This goal requires that communications by the President and his team with foreign countries (who, by definition can never be entirely trusted), are viewed as nothing short of treasonous.
Never mind that pre-inauguration conversations, most likely intended to reassure Russian President Vladimir Putin that the sanctions imposed by the outgoing American President, Barack Obama, would be reversed as soon as Trump moved into the White House, were not intended to be political, but rather to serve the President’s megalomaniacal need to build monuments to himself, this time by erecting a tower in Moscow.
The Beltway continues to wonder out loud why on earth President Trump would want to “be nice to Vladimir Putin”, incapable of entertaining the idea that his organization’s interactions with Russian officials, whether from show-biz or the Kremlin, starting on the sidelines of Trump’s 2013 Miss Universe Pageant, were intended to further his personal goal, as was plainly spelled out by a business associate Felix Sater “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it” (the permission to build a tower)….I will get all of Putin’s team to buy into this.”
Whether or not President Putin envisaged a quid pro quo in which, in return for getting his Tower in Moscow, President Trump would steer the American ship of state away from the pursuit of Lone Ranger hegemony, the one-percent of twenty-first century Homo Sapiens Americanus have obviously trashed the goal of getting along with other nations in order to avoid terminal war. They will get rid of any leader who, by advocating for peace among nations, would derail their wet dream of permanent American rule.
Trump will not be impeached because he gives tax breaks to the one percent — or even because he winks at white supremacy, but because he prefers to build instead of blowing up or infecting with biological weapons the largest country in the world that could eventually pose a threat to our hegemony. The plan of the deep state, spelled out in the Wolfowitz Doctrine, was drafted in the nineteen nineties and has never been superseded as official America’s foreign, i.e.., military policy. And that’s why, even before being inaugurated, the current American president and his pro-Russian (and therefore pro-human survival) aides, were being investigated. Recently, Paul Manafort, who is under house arrest, was accused by the Special Counsel carrying out that task, of trying to write an oped piece that presumably would tall his side of the story, with the help of a Russian ‘deemed to have ties to Russian intelligence’.
And the worst thing that Washington can say about a Russian is that he or she has ‘ties to Russian intelligence’, in an obligatory reminder of President Putin’s first job.

“The countries that have survived and prospered have always been the most efficient killers. Winners play by no rules. Even today aggressive power rules the world, and probably always will.”

(A world with no future)
HOLLYWOOD PUPPETMASTERS DRINK
THE BLOOD OF TORTURED CHILDREN
Disintegration nation, Humpty Dumpty City. What genius can put it back together again? In our fruitless quest to conquer death, humans try to improve upon Mother Nature’s boundless gifts. You see the results: Manic monsters burn the world in their bleeding cesspool of money and lies. And one by one, all the other creatures of this world eventually disappear from the weight of the trash in this human waste receptacle known as Planet Earth.
Let me get this straight! We’re waiting for a bunch of women who insist President Donald Trump molested them and want him to resign his office before he can decide to nuke North Korea. Is that what our world has come to? A perfect ending to a movie about an insane asylum! Absolute lunacy that could end life as we know it. Has it always been this way? When you look hard into history beyond the spin, regrettably you will see that it has.
The countries that have survived and prospered have always been the most efficient killers. Winners play by no rules. Even today aggressive power rules the world, and probably always will.
But if we were rich beyond our wildest dreams and could do anything we desired, would it be to rape children, drink their blood and eat their flesh — as people who are so rich they are above the law are alleged to do in our ugly world? The rumor in Hollywood is that rapist execs drink the blood of children to keep them potent. http://yournewswire.com/mel-gibson-parasites-blood-kids/, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3718758/Peter-Thiel-believes-blood-transfusions-young-key-living-forever.html and especially this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M6-dDoccsI
Is this the zenith of human civilization, as those who practice such things in their secret sanctuaries would have us believe? This is a core ontological question about the human species. How is it that this awful practice has been going on so long, yet the powerful perpetrators remain at large? In many of the royal halls of Europe, even. Is the ultimate power of money a license to rape, murder, and bribe your way out of criminal charges?
Or is all this merely the tragic emblem of a twisted species doomed to cannibalize itself because of an itch it cannot scratch?
In any case, this recent mass emasculation of libido-driven celebrities cannot help but be for the good as sheds light on men’s crimes that have been hidden in the dark for centuries. Wouldn’t it be nice if this light could be shed on more places of darkness, specifically the Deep State’s control of the worldwide heroin business that has kept it at war in Afghanistan for many decades.
I’ve given up asking people to recognize what really happened on 9/11. The enforced coma is just too deep, and brainwashed citizens are likely to call the police if you insist on telling them the truth.
Alzheimerization of the planet
We are headed toward a point when all the humans of the planet will be declared to have a contagious condition analogous to Alzheimer’s disease. It will be labeled by improperly credentialed political functionaries as an inability to conform to the dictates of the state. As a result conscientious individuals will legally labeled as unable to think for themselves. Therefore, it will be necessary for the proper authorities to determine what is best to care for these poor unfortunates, who may not be allowed to mingle with the “healthy” population lest they pollute society’s legally permissible spectrum of thought. Their confiscated property will be distributed among those who cherish the wisdom of the state. They themselves will be retrained to the specifications required by a compassionate society and/or furnish portions of themselves to assist in the health maintenance of their fellow citizens. For all practical purposes this is the situation as it already exists, remembering those who now harvest the organs of kidnapped children for use by their kosher brethren. We also see the human knowledge base shrinking daily based on the banning of all anti-Jewish thoughts from the kosher thought-control apparatus of Google/Facebook/Amazon/etc.
Your surrogate’s future
As your memories and capabilities are downloaded into a more durable carrying case with vastly more functional and intellectual capabilities, the vast majority of people will be allowed to expire somewhat naturally, although their journey will be hastened by tasty but lethal food and doctor-ordered medications. Although not likely to be spotted in the 3D world, your surrogate, who already has a long history in cyberspace, will carry out your duties as a citizen without those obnoxious episodes of conscience which retard the commercial efficiency of the world. Though the surrogate may see things through your eyes, you of course will not see through ITS cleverly restricted field of vision, which will provide the agreeable new population with an untroubled peace of mind that the old, antagonistic humans could never seem to achieve.
Why the wars never stop
The American economy has always depended on the sale of weapons, and Trump’s recent deal with the Persian Gulf fiefdom of Qatar nicely illustrates the syndrome that keeps Americans trapped by this overwrapped fixation to protect itself.
The point about selling weapons is not to protect Qatar, but to fulfill the eternal campaign promise of creating jobs. The tiny petro state of Qatar signs a $12 billion deal for the purchase of the F-15QA fighter jets creating 60,000 new jobs in 42 states across the United States. Ah, prosperity!
(Natural News) Hopped up on vaccine industry funds, the mainstream media went all out in 2015 trying to convince the public that unvaccinated children are spreading disease and endangering society. In tune with other lying mainstream media outlets, The International Business Times lied about the true source of disease while calling for the continued segregation of normal, healthy, unvaccinated children from society. The IBT asked the question: “Should a child whose parents chose not to vaccinate be allowed to share the same pencils and playground as children whose parents did?” In California, children who are not vaccinated are banned from school altogether under the chokehold of SB277. In other states, parents must conform to vaccine laws or beg for exemptions to get their kids into school.
The truth is many vaccines are formulated with live attenuated viruses that go through a process called viral shedding after injection into humans. These vaccines are clinically proven to spread disease for days, weeks, and sometimes months following vaccination. This not only puts the unvaccinated at risk, but poses a real threat to the immune-compromised.
To make matters worse, the live attenuated pathogens, once injected, are capable of replicating within host cells and reverting back to pathogenic form. Live virus vaccines are unpredictable and can cause the disease they are trying to prevent in the vaccine recipient. This is why live virus vaccines are not recommended for people with compromised immune systems, people on chemotherapy, people who are HIV positive, etc. Live virus vaccines include injections for the following: Tuberculosis, smallpox, adenovirus (oral), rotavirus, measles, mumps, rubella (combination), influenza, yellow fever, polio (oral), chickenpox, and shingles.
In 2011, a team of scientists looked specifically at how the shingles vaccine spreads the virus that causes chickenpox infection. The paper, authored by Duane L. Pierson, is titled, Varicella Zoster Virus DNA at Inoculation Sites and in Saliva After Zostavax Immunization.
The study looked at 36 individuals over the age of 60 who were recently vaccinated with Zostavax (shingles vaccine). Before the vaccine, saliva samples were taken; none contained pathogenic material. After the vaccine was administered, 50 percent of the recipients tested positive for varicella zoster virus, a neurotropic alphaherpesvirus that causes varicella (chickenpox) in children. In the 28 day follow-up period, the researchers would go on to detect varicella in 58 percent of the recipients. At day fourteen, 31 percent of the recipients tested positive for VZV DNA. At day twenty-one, 28 percent were still carrying the virus. At the end of the month, all but two recipients had eliminated the virus from their system.
What this proves is that, for up to a month after vaccination, those who receive the shingles vaccine are a threat to children. The study authors warn that “the detection of VZV DNA in saliva of Zostavax recipients for up to 28 days suggests that contact with saliva of recently immunized individuals represents a potential source of transmission.”
Polio vaccines are also notorious for causing the disease they are trying to prevent. The vaccine may cause a condition called vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP), which can be worse than a natural, benign polio infection. Also, recent measles and mumps outbreaks in the U.S. have been documented in vaccinated populations. When the live virus sheds and spreads to the unvaccinated people in the group, the dishonest media blames the unvaccinated for spreading the disease.
Even though the results are clear — that vaccines spread disease unpredictably and uncontrollably — the mainstream media will continue to call for the segregation of the unvaccinated from society. The vaccine industry’s misinformation continues to spread faster than viruses, perpetuating ill-gotten science, confusion, fear-driven vaccination, and more disease.

The first time when it became clear to me that I live in a dictatorship was in 2014 when reading, prior to its publication, the landmark (and still the only) scientific empirical study to address the question as to whether or not the United States federal Government is, authentically, a democracy — or, whether, alternatively, it’s instead more of a dictatorship, than a democracy. This study documented conclusively that America’s Government is the latter.
So, on 14 April 2014, I headlined “US Is an Oligarchy, Not a Democracy, Says Scientific Study”. Subsequently, my editor linked it to the published article at the Journal where the study was published, Perspectives on Politics, from the American Political Science Association, and the full study can be read there.
On 30 April 2014, was posted at youtube the video that remains, to this day, the best and clearest ordinary-language summary of what that badly-written academic study proved. See its explanation here:
That summary’s title is also better than the title of my article was; this excellent video headlines “Corruption is Legal in America”, which is another accurate conclusion from that study. Every American citizen should know what this 6-minute video says and shows from the academic study, because it explains how the super-rich, as a class, steal from everyone else (everyone who isn’t super-rich): They do it through corruption.
Then, that same person who created the video did another presentation of it, but this time with text accompanying the video, and this article was titled “One graph shows how the rich control American politics”, and it indeed showed how. The super-rich carry out their control via corruption, which is legal in America and which can be done vastly more by rich people than by poor people — poor people simply can’t buy the Government, and any who would even attempt to do so would be using only the illegal means, which the US Supreme Court says constitutes the only illegal means, and that’s blatant bribery, which is lower-class corruption, not the far more lucrative type of corruption that super-wealthy individuals have access to. Only the forms of corruption which are available only to the super-rich are legal in America. That’s the reason why the super-rich keep getting still-richer, while the rest of the population are lucky if they don’t become poorer.
On 28 July 2015, former US President Jimmy Carter was frank about this situation; as a caller at a progressive radio show, he said this about America’s soaring top-level corruption:
It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or being elected president. And the same thing applies to governors, and US Senators and congress members. So, now we’ve just seen a subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect, and sometimes get, favors for themselves after the election is over. … At the present time the incumbents, Democrats and Republicans, look upon this unlimited money as a great benefit to themselves. Somebody that is already in Congress has a great deal more to sell.”
Three days later, Huffington Post published my article about that statement, which was headlined “Jimmy Carter Is Correct That the US Is No Longer a Democracy,” and it had over 60,000 likes on Facebook (here the article is shown a bit earlier, when it had 56,000) but HuffPo reduced that number down to its currently shown number, 18,000; and this article turned out to have been the last submission of the 100+ that they accepted from me. They’ve rejected all of my submissions after it. No explanation was ever given, and I never heard anything from them again.
The scientific article about America’s Government had reviewed 1,779 pieces of proposed legislation during the period from 1981 to 2002, and it found that only what the super-rich wanted to become law did become law: “The preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy,” they said. That’s certainly not a democracy.
There has been speculation as to how far back historically America’s government-by-the-aristocracy (or, simply, America’s being an aristocracy — a rule over the public by the few super-rich, an “oligarchy”) has been in effect. Prior to Ronald Reagan’s Presidency, going back to the time when FDR died in office in 1945 as the President, the distribution of income and of wealth was much more equal in America than it started to become as soon as Reagan entered the White House and began the subsequent dominance of supply-side economics, which is based upon the supply-push belief that wealth trickles down from the few rich, instead of (as FDR believed) in a demand-pull way, that it percolates up from the many poor. FDR believed that what drives an economy is needs, not the products and services to fill needs. Reagan believed in the opposite, Say’s law, which says that whatever is produced will fill needs (or at least desires) — that production is what drives an economy, and that needs (and desires) just take care of themselves. So, FDR focused on “the common man” and especially the poor, but Reagan focused on “entrepreneurs” or the owners of businesses. (The middle class isn’t an issue here, but is simply the richer portion of the poor. Historically that has been the case. For example, America’s middle class has declined while the poor have mushroomed, but the top 5% are getting all of the gains; and most of that is going to the top 1% or even less. So: “poor” here includes the middle-class; and, to refer to “middle-class America” is now like referring to a dying breed — but it’s a breed of poor, not of rich.)
However, the extreme corruption at the top in this country is showing up more sharply than ever in recently declassified US Government documents about the JFK assassination — showing up as having begun much earlier than had generally been suspected, begun at least by the time when President Kennedy came into office on 20 January 1961. Kennedy found himself surrounded by the military-industrial complex that his predecessor, Eisenhower, had cultivated while he was in the White House and that “Ike” hypocritically warned the American public against, on his way out of office, only on 17 January 1961 — three days before Kennedy’s inauguration. Some of these corrupt people were ones whom Kennedy himself had brought in. Not all of them were Ike’s holdovers. But Kennedy was apparently shocked, nonetheless.
The beginnings of this profound corruption might be traced still farther back to moles in the Government (such as the Dulles brothers, Averell Harriman and Prescott Bush) who had built their careers after World War I by means of plying and mastering the revolving door between the Government’s foreign-policy Establishment and Wall Street. Starting at the very end of WW II, in 1945, agents of these moles ended FDR’s Office of Strategic Services and started Truman’s CIA. Right from the get-go, the CIA was deeply corrupt, as the following 2.5-hour BBC documentary from 1992 makes clear:
Operation Gladio – Full 1992 documentary BBC
It documents from testimony of former CIA operatives in Europe, that the CIA had been hiring European aristocrats and committed fascists and even ‘former’ Nazis, to set up terrorist incidents in Europe rigged so as to be blamed by the public against communists and against any entities that were favorable in any way toward the Soviet Union. Numberless Europeans were injured and killed in terrorist incidents that were set up by the CIA to be, basically, anti-communist propaganda. This CIA operation was called “Gladio,” and it continues to this day, even though communism itself is gone.
Subsequently, a video was done that’s far briefer, 50 minutes, and which starts with interviews of some of the survivors of these CIA-NATO operations, so that it’s far more from the victims’ perspective than was the BBC’s lengthier documentary:
NATO’s Secret Armies (2009)
When Kennedy became President, he found himself surrounded by advisors who were urging him such as, on 22 March 1962, John Kennedy’s own brother and US Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy did, when RFK held a meeting to discuss “the possibility of US manufacture or acquisition of Soviet aircraft” because:
“There is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air, to launch a surprise attack against enemy installations or in a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack US or friendly installations in order to provide an excuse for US intervention. If the planes were to be used in such covert operations, it would seem preferable to manufacture them in the United States.”
“We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of a Cuban agent and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.”
Even JFK’s own brother RFK, and Secretary of ‘Defense’ Robert McNamara, and Secretary of State Dean Rusk — plus lots of holdovers from the Eisenhower Administration — thought that this sort of thing would be worth the President of the United States considering. Fortunately, JFK didn’t.
Michael Ellison had gotten to see a bit of the 12 April 1962 document decades earlier and he reported it on 2 May 2001 in Britain’s Guardian under the headline “Memos disclose US cold-war plot to frame Castro”. Ellison wrote that “The idea was an element in a wider scheme that ‘may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the US government’, asserts James Bamford.” Since Bamford is perhaps the world’s leading journalist and historian who has written about the NSA (books such as his 1983 The Puzzle Palace), for even him to have expressed surprise in 2001 that the US Government, at its top level, was predominantly staffed by people who were racking their brains to figure out ways to fake Soviet terrorism and attacks so as for the US and NATO to have a pretext to invade the Soviet Union, indicates how much more cynical we all have become after George W. Bush’s lies about ‘Saddam’s WMD’ as pretexts for the US and its collaborators to invade and destroy Iraq in 2003. Not only was John Kennedy surprised to discover it in 1962, but James Bamford was surprised to discover it even as late as 2001. Bamford in 2001 might not have said what he said there if he had seen that 1992 BBC documentary, which showed that the top level of the CIA had been like this from the time when the CIA started in 1947. But with so much history behind us now and which had still been classified information, and thus non-public, until 2001 when Bamford said that the 12 April 1962 document described “may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the US Government,” we today are hardly surprised at all to discover it. The corruption at the top of the US Government has long since overflowed its banks, out into the public’s consciousness. Not all the king’s horses and all the king’s men can put the myth of US Government decency together again.
After a 45-minute infusion of ketamine, clients at a clinic in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood are not partying.
Instead, they’re in a state of quiet contemplation — reclining on cushioned chairs, listening to music, or occasionally striking a tranquil yoga pose.
These clients are patients at one of ten ketamine clinics operated by Actify Neurotherapies, a network that offers the treatments to people diagnosed with severe forms of anxiety and depression. Ketamine is best known for its illegal recreational uses — it is a powerful dissociative that can induce feelings of being separated from one’s own body. But it is also one of the safest and most widely used legal anesthetics. And ketamine’s utility as an antidepressant has recently started to gain attention.
A new study out of Columbia University Medical Center found that ketamine worked significantly better at curbing suicidal thoughts in depressed patients than a commonly used sedative.
A spate of studies over the past several years have also suggested that ketamine may provide swift and powerful relief to people suffering from some of the hardest-to-treat forms of depression — an illness that is the leading disability worldwide. The findings have been so promising, in fact, that some researchers are calling it “the most important discovery in half a century,” though other experts say more research is still needed.
The US Food and Drug Administration has not approved ketamine for the treatment of anxiety or depression, so clinics that offer it for these uses are doing so off-label. Actify Neurotherapies is one of an estimated 50 to 100 such clinics taking the same approach across the US.
Actify Neurotherapies’ San Francisco office is a cross between clinical and therapeutic. In each treatment room, a reclining clinical chair sits facing a large window. In the corner is a chair decorated with a colorful crocheted blanket.

“We’re striking a balance between a clinical setting and a home setting,” Steve Levine, a psychiatrist and the CEO of Actify Neurotherapies, told Business Insider.
Each two-hour visit includes 45 minutes of ketamine infusion, 45 minutes of a saline drip, and a consultation with Alison McInnes, a physician who founded a regional ketamine therapy program with Kaiser Permanente.
“Therapy and ketamine go together like peanut butter and chocolate,” Levine said. “And with our approach, you have someone with an extensive background in mental health and therapy always present, and talk therapy happens before and after the infusion.”
The latest research on ketamine’s potential to treat depression — specifically the deadliest complication of the disorder, suicide — was published in December in the American Journal of Psychiatry. The Columbia University researchers found that ketamine did a significantly better job of curbing suicidal thoughts in depressed patients than a commonly prescribed sedative.
After months of tension between the US and North Korea, a new report states the Trump administration is mulling a strike against North Korea to give Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un a “bloody nose.”
“Well-placed” sources told the Daily Telegraph Wednesday that the US military is preparing to attack North Korea, which has tested ballistic missiles at a record pace in 2017.
The US attack could target missile launch sites or aim to destroy weapons and munitions depots, the news outlet said.
The strike could be similar to the one carried out by US forces against the Sha’irat airbase in Syria on April 7, the former security official with knowledge of the policy told the Daily Telegraph. In the Syria strike, US Navy vessels fired 59 Tomahawk long-range cruise missiles at the airbase.
“The Pentagon is trying to find options that would allow them to punch the North Koreans in the nose, get their attention and show that we’re serious,” the official said.
However, an attack on missile launch sites, while dramatic, wouldn’t actually have much effect on Pyongyang’s lethal capabilities, some note.
“Say it with me,” tweeted Jeffrey Lewis, director of East Asia Nonproliferation programs at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, “Mobile missiles [like Hwasong-15] don’t need launch sites, Donald.”
Some analysts are skeptical that such a plan is being considered by the Pentagon and the White House at all. “I think the source is off base and this doesn’t reflect what’s actually being seriously discussed,” Aaron Stein, a researcher at the Atlantic Council, tweeted December 20.
Vipin Narang, a political science professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said on Twitter that “the notion in DC that you can give North Korea a ‘bloody nose’ without the US or an ally suffering a severe stab wound in return is delusional.”
