ENDNOTE: The Medical Industrial Complex is a health risk

Don’t Automatically Trust Your Doctor – It Might Kill You
By Dr. Mark Sircus — DrSircus.com — April 7, 2018

*** begin quote ***

Former vice President of Pfizer, Dr. Peter Rost, has blown the whistle on the dangers of the Gardasil vaccine – and claims that Big Pharma aims to keep people unhealthy. This is no surprise and the vaccines companies do not care because they are not liable for anything in terms of all the damage vaccines do to children and their families.

As Dr. Frost says, everyone is looking for money and “only the big multinationals have it. Meaning the human race is depending on a greedy, crooked, lying, deceiving medical industrial complex and are getting shafted for their trust.”

*** end quote ***

I’ve seen the medical establishment. While some docs are caring folks, some are arrogant buffoons.

When your loved one is dying, I’d have taken an answer from anyone.

But, all to often, there’s no “answer” in their “playbook”.

That’s why “We, The Sheeple” need to make the FDA an advisor without power — like Underwriters Laboratory or Consumers Reports. 

The analogy I stole to use with doctors is the old joke: “In the making of ham and eggs, the chicken is interested but the pig is committed.” Unfortunately, in today’s medical world, the establishments are the chickens and the patients are the pigs. Argh!

And don’t tell me that Obama – SCOTUS – Trump care, VA medical care, Indian medical care, Canadian / English / Europe’s health care will be so much better.

The only thing that’s going to work is raw naked mean old capitalism. 

“We, The Sheeple” has to pay for what works.

Argh!

ENDNOTE: State-Enforced Paganism in America begins with the Gooferment Skrules

State-Enforced Paganism in America
By Fay Voshell

*** begin quote ***

But Christians who believe the Ten Commandments are an expression of God’s higher laws are irrational and must be expunged from any meaningful role in society.

Persecution of Christians is nothing new, of course; though it has been relatively restrained in America until recent decades.

Instances of persecution abound, both past and present. During the reign of Louis XIV of France, the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, which had offered some protection of the Huguenot minority, meant Protestants were deprived of any rights whatever. The Sun King’s enforcer, Cardinal de Richelieu, succeeded in breaking any political power held by Huguenots by banning them from holding public office and by decreeing their children be taken from their homes to be instructed in the tenets of the Catholic faith, which was to be absolute.

In similar manner, America’s Christian parents, protestant and Catholic alike — most of whom do not have affordable and easily accessible alternatives — find their children forcibly instructed in the tenets of New Paganism in public schools. The doctrines of the New Paganism, including polytheistic multiculturalism, moral relativism, and political correctness exclude teaching of Christian principles.

*** and ***

The New Paganism, which in its most current form of transgenderism is both anti-Christian and anti-science — and thus anti-Western — is deeply committed to the use of state power to quell opposition, Christian or otherwise, as has recently been shown in the case of a feminist British woman who was interrogated by police because her tweets questioning the castration of a sixteen-year-old boy were deemed prejudicial to transgenderism. All dissenters, not just Christians, should be appalled by such raw use of state power to suppress opposing views.

The New Paganism is bound to think America would be better if it were rid of Christians. Riddled with pre-science superstitions better belonging to pagan barbarism, the New Paganism is dead set against any restraints whatsoever. Christians, however, know human will is capable of great evil, particularly when it brooks no restraint. They know human will must be restrained by allegiance to a higher law than the state. They know the New Paganism is horribly regressive and inevitably oppressive, as are all ideologies that permit the absolute ascendency of human will, be it the will of an elite class or individuals. The ineluctable descent of the sexual revolution into bestiality, pedophilia and the mutilation of the human body in order to create a facsimile of the opposite sex are revelatory of a truly barbarous religion.

*** end quote ***

The hierarchy of the various churches have lost all moral authority due to human flaws and the desire to please the “king” lest they be prosecuted for those human flaws.

If “we” don’t stop Gooferment “education” — which the Communists were excoriated for “brainwashing children”, then how can we stop the Left’s relentless march towards socialism. Then comes dictatorship and eventually genocide for the Christians. Nothing can dislodge the Gooferment’s desire to be the people’s “god”. And, there can only be one “god”. Argh!

“We, The Sheeple” must push back and insist that parents educate their own children without interference from “the State”. For those who insist that children “will not be properly educated”, all that has to be done is to point to the results “achieved” by Gooferment Skrules!

Argh!

ENDNOTE: Is Holy Mother Church being led by petty leftist Pope?

Vatican Cracks Down on Critics of Pope Francis
By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D 
Breitbart
March 24, 2018

*** begin quote ***

The Vatican has taken new measures to punish critics of Pope Francis in a move that seems to belie the pope’s earlier calls for greater dialogue and debate within the Church.

On Thursday, the Rome-based Sovereign Order of Malta, which reports directly to the Holy See, suspended historian Henry Sire after he was revealed to be the author of the bestselling book The Dictator Pope: The Inside Story of the Francis Papacy, a critical examination of the pontificate of Pope Francis.

Meanwhile the Vatican has hired the international law firm of Baker McKenzie to force a small Spanish website called InfoVaticana.com to close its doors, allegedly for its sometimes critical tone toward aspects of the Francis papacy. The firm recently threatened a lawsuit if Infovaticana isn’t shut down and “its internet domain transferred to the Vatican.”

*** end quote ***

Sad to say but the Church’s leadership, with its unbelievable non-response to the pedophilia scandal, may have just condemned it forever to irrelevance. 

Once it was the equal to the various Kings in power and influence. Now it’s been neutered as a moral authority by the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats.

Just have to shrug one’s shoulders and move along. No sense paying any attention to this particular “train wreck”.

Sadly.

ENDNOTE: Innocent man executed; DNA exculpatory

Injustice by lethal injection: ‘Stocking Strangler’ is executed for raping and killing seven women DESPITE Mail On Sunday reporter uncovering vital DNA evidence that he claims proves his innocence
Carlton Gary, 67, known as the ‘Stocking strangler’ was executed on Thursday
He supposedly murdered seven women and raped another in Columbus, Georgia
His execution came despite DNA tests proving that the 67-year-old was innocent 
By David Rose for The Mail on Sunday
PUBLISHED: 18:17 EDT, 17 March 2018 | UPDATED: 03:50 EDT, 18 March 2018

*** begin quote ***

At about 10pm last Thursday, Carlton Gary, the prisoner condemned as the ‘Stocking Strangler’, a man who supposedly murdered seven women and raped another in Columbus, Georgia, was hustled into a white breeze block building at the state prison in Jackson – the death house.

*** and ***

Various appeal courts refused to examine evidence of Carlton Gary’s innocence, which included:

  • The DNA test: The first victim, Gertrude Miller, identified Gary as her attacker in the most dramatic point of his trial. But DNA testing on semen on her nightdress and sheets proves she was raped by someone else.
  • The crime lab sabotage: A semen sample from another victim, locked away for years, was rendered useless after someone at the Georgia state crime lab smeared their own semen over the precious slide.
  • The bite mould: Also hidden for years was a mould of the killer’s teeth, made from a bite wound on another victim. It did not match Gary’s teeth.
  • The shoe print: The killer left shoeprints on an air-conditioning unit at one of the crime scenes. They were size 9, but Gary has size 14 feet – as MoS reporter David Rose testified at a 2014 appeal hearing.
  • The hidden lab papers: Documents unearthed 14 years after the 1986 trial show that the killer was a ‘non-secretor’ – a condition that means a person does not secrete his blood group marker into other bodily fluids. Gary is a secretor – as David Rose proved when he smuggled a sample of Gary’s semen out of prison after visiting him on death row.

I found that, if as reported, the “confession” is suspect and must be deemed “bogus” at best; criminal action by the police at worst.

Hence, my renewed objection to the “death penalty”. When the Gooferment makes an OBVIOUS mistake and refuses to correct it, the “innocent” is no longer alive to get justice.

Every honest person should be outraged.

Argh!

ENDNOTE: Will “Human Flow” be propaganda?

Human Flow – an Amazon Original Movie

From the topic, I would assume it is worth watching. I really hope it’s honest and not some more “political propaganda”. I really don’t care if the “propaganda” is from the left (i.e., the pseudo anti war group that only pop up when there is an R in the white house) or from the right (i.e., Fox News & Sean Hannity “carrying water” for Big Gooferment & the R’s whenever a D is in the white house). I just don’t want to waste my time. I’ll watch it and report back if it’s worth the time.

ENDNOTE: Gun rights activists are not stupid enough to disarm themselves

Vilifying Gun Owners Doesn’t Lead to a Better Society
Progressives push their luck with their totalitarian insistence that everybody is with them or against them on guns and so much else.
J.D. Tuccille | March 5, 2018

*** begin quote ***

Last week, outdoor gear retailer REI became the latest business to pledge its fealty to the raging culture war against wrongthink. It’s a high-stakes move that’s unlikely to end well for the activists pushing the effort.

*** and ***

“The NRA is so engrained in the American culture now because of their very successful messaging of, ‘Don’t take away my gun’ or ‘You’re infringing on my Second Amendment rights,'” actress Alyssa Milano told an interviewer about the push to get NRATV dropped. “What a campaign like this allows is for a cultural hack.”

*** and ***

David Brooks sees the danger of a reaction, warning that “illiberalism breeds illiberalism.” He suggests that progressives risk a “political backlash that could make Donald Trump look like Adlai Stevenson.”

That would be quite the booby prize if progressives manage to pull it off. Instead of achieving their moment of triumph by forcing people and businesses to declare loyalty to the cause, partisans playing at heavy-handed speech and thought police might instead reap the whirlwind (and so will we all).

And if any progressives really care about the gun issue, they should consider that vilifying gun owners, demanding professions of fealty, and attempting to silence dissent guarantee that few if any ideological opponents would ever disarm. In an all-or-nothing political environment, they’d have to be suicidal to even consider the idea.

*** end quote ***

I don’t understand how (1) the “gun control” folks forget the genocides; and (2) the “gun control” folks think that “gun rights” folks won’t defend their natural or “pre-Constitutional” rights.

It’s going to get pretty messy.

Everyone should remember the immortal George Carlin explains how “the Game is Rigged”: “It’s a Big Club and You Ain’t in It”! 

We’re all a minority in some way or another.

“First they came …” is a famous statement and provocative poem attributed to pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis’ rise to power and the subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came_…

Remember Kristallnacht — THE “NIGHT OF BROKEN GLASS” — it can happen here.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

POLITICS & POLICY
How the Nazis Used Gun Control
By STEPHEN P. HALBROOK
December 2, 2013 9:00 AM

*** begin quote ***

In 1968, bills to register guns were debated, with opponents recalling the Nazi experience and supporters denying that the Nazis ever used registration records to confiscate guns. The bills were defeated, as every such proposal has been ever since, including recent “universal background check” bills.

As in Weimar Germany, some well-meaning people today advocate severe restrictions, including bans and registration, on gun ownership by law-abiding persons. Such proponents are in no sense “Nazis,” any more than were the Weimar officials who promoted similar restrictions. And it would be a travesty to compare today’s situation to the horrors of Nazi Germany.

Still, as history teaches, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
