The Clothes do not Make the Man

If the clothes do not make the man, and for example if it is not enough to declare oneself Pope at the service of the poor to actually be like this, what can do the man what he is? If we succeed in answering this question, we will gain greater discernment about to the real nature of those who govern us and of those who give them orders. We will no longer rely blindly or stupidly on the appearance, the image often created through marketing and the media. They all too often manage to sell us margarine for butter when it’s not ten times worse. (from: https://pixabay.com) What makes man, whether monk, pope or president of a republic, is neither his clothes, his material possessions, his personality, nor his title… According to the point of view exposed here, this who defines him, what makes him what he is, is more his soul or the deepest part of his being, then what emanates from him, what radiates from his center, what he does and creates (or on the contrary destroys) by these means… In other words, an individual cannot be properly evaluated and discerned only on the basis of his profession, his…

The Bureaucracy Against Freedom

Our modern societies have gradually developed an increasingly burdensome and omnipresent bureaucracy. It now manages almost every aspect of our lives and has significantly diminished our freedom of movement and action. It has such a hold and such a presence that it seems natural to many people. These are born with it and will die with it, prisoners of its regulations from one end to the other of their life. Those who break these often earn nothing other than prison or heavy fines. To find a true freedom, we will, however, have to learn how to do without it. Even before the birth of a child, parents generally feel obliged to rely on hospital bureaucracy for ultrasounds and other tests, the results of which must then be recorded. Even if by chance, they break away from this stage, they will have to obtain the toddler's birth certificate. Then, they will have to register him in a nursery, or in a nursery school ... But before that and without the least discussion, they will have to vaccinate him to behave as good model parents and, of course, to write this in a vaccination booklet . To transport it by car, they…

Let’s stop the cows!

There is a fairly recent tendency to reject cow's milk and dairy products under the following pretexts: It would be indigestible for lack of lactase (which allows the digestion of lactose). It would be allergenic. It would be pathogenic growth factor (promoting cancer). It would produce diabetes and autoimmune diseases. It would produce many other health problems (Crohn's disease, arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatism, constipation, chronic fatigue) ... Dairy calcium is poorly assimilated. The human species is (or would be) the only species to consume milk of another species. The following can be answered: Lactose is almost totally absent from dairy products processed by bacterial fermentation (cheeses, yogurts, etc.) and lactase is still present in many humans until old age ; Is milk itself the problem, especially of allergies, or the fact that only "industrial" milk (from cows packed in real factories - and not outside in nature) -, fed not with grass, but with flour stuffed with pesticides, injected regularly with antibiotics and even hormones, etc.)? Does organic milk produce the same effects? Is not human breast milk, like that of a cow, a growth factor, promoting both healthy cells and cancer ones? Average composition of milk in grams per liter…

Social & complementary currencies

In various parts of the world, there are already alternative arrangements to official currencies to facilitate the exchange of works, services, products or goods. For example, the page https://www.ritimo.org/Monnaies-sociales-complementaires mentions: Social & complementary currencies 2011-12-08 The so-called social and complementary currencies (or complementary Community currencies, MCC) designate exchange devices, payment tools, organized around a specific unit of account, allowing the exchange of goods and services and used in addition to the official monetary policy of the country in question (the dollar, the euro, etc.). Largely ignored by mainstream economics, these currencies still occupy a prominent place in the search for alternative economic models, and attract more and more interest from local actors. In the French context, they are part of the movement of the social and solidarity economy, but it is a phenomenon on a global scale, visible in particular in South America, North America, Europe and in Asia (especially in Japan). If innovations abound, especially since the 1980s, their real impact is still marginal, whether in economic, social or environmental terms. Expanded definition Wherever they emerge, the social and complementary currencies are part of a particular history and context, and the overall movement is characterized by an abundance of…

Understanding Why They Lie and Why They Get Away with It

(...)Is there really anybody out there who will deny that the US government lies pretty much about everything and anything?. And it’s not just the Executive Branch, Congress lies possibly even more (both parties, of course). In fact, I would argue that lying is both necessary AND expected from any US politician. When somebody like Tulsi Gabbard or Ron Paul don’t abide by this rule, the media immediately dismisses them as “Putin agents” or something equally insipid.

Our Fundamental Disagreement About WWII, Hitler, Jews and Race

"The topic of Russians and Jews is clearly a “hot” one. Over the past few years I wrote several articles on this topic including “Putin and Israel A Complex and Multi-Layered Relationship”, “Why Is Putin “Allowing” Israel to Bomb Syria?”, “Russia, Israel and the Values of “Western Civilization” – Where Is the Truth?” and “Debunking the Rumors About Russia Caving in to Israel”. And yet, for a while now I have felt that there is much more which could, and should, be said on this topic."

Is the new ‘deadly China virus’ a covert operation?

New virus in china. Watch out. Spreading. Animals to humans? Pandemic coming up? Obey medical authorities. All hands on deck. Centered in wuhan. City of 11 million. Will they quarantine and shut down hong kong? Travelers with the virus getting through to europe and america? What’s the name of the virus? 2019-ncov or ncov2019. What? Thank god the chinese are under a tight dictatorship, they can crack down and quarantine anybody on a whim. If your body temperature is elevated on a test, they stop you? Wow! We may need that in the usa, as long as they don’t stop me. Impeachment? Forget that, it’s the virus.

How the Incoherent Theory of Evolution Distorts Our Thinking

"In my experience, most people who believe in Darwinian evolution know very little about what the theory really says and how this evolution is supposed to work. They believe that it most certainly works, but when you ask questions about the specifics, you won't get much out of them. And if you do, it will likely turn out that what they say isn't actually true."

Don’t buy the media hype over the new China virus

A CNN reporter broadcasts from Wuhan, China, on the recent viral outbreak. There is nobody near who could possibly infect him ­— unless the cameraman has Guinness Book of Records coughs and sneezes. So why does he insist on wearing a blue surgical mask while talking? It’s called “drama,” which is badly needed, because there appears to be nothing very special about this outbreak of the 2019-nCoV or Wuhan ­virus. It should actually be called the DvV, or Déjà vu Virus, because we have been through these hysterias before.

The War Pigs Are Finally Revealing Themselves – And This Is Just The Beginning…

Brandon Smith In 2016 during the election campaign of Donald Trump one of the primary factors of his popularity among conservatives was that he was one of the first candidates since Ron Paul to argue for bringing US troops home and ending American involvement in the various elitist fabricated wars in the Middle East. From Iraq, to Afghanistan, to Syria and Yemen and beyond, the Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs at the behest of their globalist masters had been waging war oversees unabated for over 15 years. The time was ripe for a change and people felt certain that if Hillary Clinton entered the White House, another 4-8 years of war were guaranteed. There was nothing to be gained from these wars. They were only dragging the US down socially and economically, and even the idea of “getting the oil” had turned into a farce as the majority of Iraqi oil has been going to China, not the US. General estimates on the costs of the wars stand at $5 trillion US tax dollars and over 4500 American dead along with around 40,000 wounded. The only people that were benefiting from the situation were globalists and banking elites, who had been clamoring…

Trump’s Point of No Return

Author: Tom Luongo When I wrote that the coup against President Trump had morphed into a Civil War, I wasn’t kidding. The sham impeachment created the perfect environment for the Democrats and Republicans to get something definitive from him by playing the House and the Senate off each other. With the Senate Neocon Occupied Territory the escalation of belligerence since Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed through the impeachment vote has been serious. First, there was the rider to the NDAA which upped the sanctions on everyone willing to work on Nordstream 2. Then Lindsey Graham pushed the frankly insane DASKA bill through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Pelosi forced her impeachment vote through the House on partisan lines. Then, clearly overstepping her authority, she refused to send the Articles to the Senate hoping to add a more serious charge, like Obstruction of Justice or Treason for laundering Russian money through Deutsche Bank. It is under these circumstances we should view the events in Iraq over the last week, especially the killing of IRGC Quds Forces Commander Qassem Solemaini. Because I’ve warned from the beginning of this impeachment, Trump was just 17 votes in the Senate away from conviction. And failure on…

The Rush To A Cashless Society Only Serves Globalist Interests

A fundamental pillar of true free markets is the existence of choice; the availability of options from production to providers to purchase mechanisms without interference from governments or corporate monopolies. Choice means competition, and competition drives progress. Choice can also drive changes within society, for if people know a better or more secure way of doing things exists, why would anyone want to stay trapped within the confines of a limited system? At the very least, people should be allowed to choose economic mechanisms that work best for their particular situation. This is NOT how our society functions today, and free market do not exist anywhere in modern nations including the US.

Avoiding the Coming Ice Age

Most people like predictability in their lives. Some like a modicum of excitement and wild things, but even then they tend to prefer the outcome to be predictable; eventually, they want to come home and go back to work rather than end up marooned on a desert island or eaten by a polar bear. Public cravings for predictability create a market niche for people who make predictions. Oddly enough, it doesn’t matter much whether the predictions are accurate or not. Weather is chaotic, and therefore not particularly predictable beyond a few days, but people like to complain, and weather forecasts give them something to complain about. Stock markets are chaotic too, but there are analysts to suit every mood, from very bullish to very bearish. Cyclical phenomena are the easiest to predict accurately. The prediction industry got its start many thousands of years ago, when priests and shamans started gazing up at the stars and the planets and lining up rocks to sight them in. They used the information they gained through their stargazing to accurately predict the best times to plant crops or go fishing. People were duly impressed by such feats and thought that this was some sort…

About Trump

The timing is right for everyone to understand what Donald Trump is doing, and try to decrypt the ambiguity of how he is doing it. The controversial President has a much clearer agenda than anyone can imagine on both foreign policy and internal affairs, but since he has to stay in power or even stay alive to achieve his objectives, his strategy is so refined and subtle that next to no one can see it. His overall objective is so ambitious that he has to follow random elliptic courses to get from point A to point B, using patterns that throw people off on their comprehension of the man. That includes most independent journalists and so-called alternative analysts, as much as Western mainstream fake-news publishers and a large majority of the population. About his strategy, I could make a quick and accurate analogy with medication: most pills are designed to cure a problem, but come with an array of secondary after-effects. Well, Trump is using medication solely for their after-effects, while the first intent of the pill is what’s keeping him in power and alive. By the end of this article, you’ll see that this metaphor applies for just about…

Lies Which the West Manufactures and then Consumes

After my work in the Middle East had finished, at least for the time being, I was waiting for my flight to Santiago de Chile. In Paris. I could count on a few ‘free’ days, processing what I had heard and witnessed in Beirut. Day after day, for long hours, I sat in a lounge, typing and typing; reflecting and typing. As I was working, above me, France 24 television news channel was on, beaming from a flat screen. The people around me were coming and going: West African elites on their wild shopping sprees, shouting unceremoniously into their mobile phones. Koreans and Japanese doing Paris. Rude German and North American beefy types, discussing business, laughing vulgarly, disregarding ‘lower beings’, in fact everyone in their immediate radius. No matter what was happening in my hotel, France 24 was on, and on, and on. Yes, precisely; for 24 hours, recycling for days and nights the same stories, once in a while updating news, with a slightly arrogant air of superiority. Here, France was judging the world; teaching Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, about themselves. In front of my eyes, above me, on that screen, the world was changing.…

Why Is The Elitist Establishment So Obsessed With Meat?

I don't know how many people have noticed this, but in the past three months it has been impossible for a person to throw a beef burger patty in any direction on the compass without hitting a news article on the “destructive effects” of the meat industry in terms of “climate change”. There's also been endless mainstream articles on the supposedly vast health benefits of a vegetarian or vegan diet. This narrative has culminated in a tidal wave of stories about vegetable-based meat companies like Beyond Meat and their rise to stock market stardom. The word on the street is, meat based diets are going the way of the Dodo, and soon, by environmental necessity, we will ALL be vegetarians.

Tulsi Nails it on National TV… US Regime-Change Wars

No wonder Democratic Party bosses and mainstream media are trying to bury presidential contender Tulsi Gabbard. She is the only candidate, perhaps the only politician in the US, who is telling the American public exactly what they need to know about what their government and military are really up to: fighting illegal regime-change wars, and to boot, sponsoring terrorists for that purpose. It didn’t come much clearer nor more explicit than when Gabbard fired up the Democratic TV debate this week. It was billed as the biggest televised presidential debate ever, and the Hawaii Representative told some prime-time home-truths to the nation: “Donald Trump has blood of the Kurds on his hands, but so do many of the politicians in our country from both parties who have supported this ongoing regime-change war in Syria that started in 2011… along with many in the mainstream media who have been championing and cheer-leading this regime-change war.”

The Connections Between Emotional Stress, Trauma and Physical Pain

Studies have shown that chronic pain might not only be caused by physical injury but also by stress and emotional issues. In particular, people who have experienced trauma and suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are often at a higher risk to develop chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as prolonged physical pain that lasts for longer than the natural healing process should allow. This pain might stem from injuries, inflammation, or neuralgias and neuropathies (disorders of the nerves), but some people suffer in the absence of any of these conditions. Chronic pain can debilitate one's ability to move with ease, may hinder their normal functioning, and the search for relief can lead to pain medication addictions, which compound the problem. Chronic pain is also often accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, depression and anxiety. Many people are already familiar with the fact that emotional stress can lead to stomachaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and headaches, but might not know that it can also cause other physical complaints and even chronic pain. One logical reason for this: studies have found that the more anxious and stressed people are, the more tense and constricted their muscles are, over time causing the muscles…

BBC Fake News on 5G Decoded: Health Impacts Denied Despite Overwhelming Scientific Evidence

Open letter to the “Under the Radar” BBC Programme Producer was hoping that I could leave it to others to refute the latest fake news on 5G from the BBC, but I feel obliged to wade in with the evidence since the BBC signally fails to provide it, perhaps corrupted like others by its recently rumoured collaboration with various telecommunications companies (Transparency International: Investigating Corruption in the Media and Telecoms Industries).

Truth is an Endangered Species

Dear Readers, you have kept this website going longer than I had hoped. It is a lot of work for me. My columns and those of guests generate a lot of appreciation and also a lot of demonization and expressions of hatred toward me. The slightest criticism of Israel labels one an anti-semite. People who are aware understand that this word is so over-used that it has become meaningless, but the insouciant conclude that if you are labeled an anti-semite you are some kind of monster who wants to harm Jews. If you point out the double-standards that white people suffer, you get branded a “racist white supremacist.” If you point out that #MeToo feminists are criminalizing heterosexual sexual attraction, you become a misogynist. If you expose the official lies fed to the American people—Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, Iranian nukes, Russian invasion of Ukraine, 9/11, Gulf of Tonkin, and so on—you are dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist” who hates America. Instead of seeing you as someone who is trying to rescue America, morons ask “If you hate America so much, why don’t you move to Russia?” or Iran, or China, or Venezuela, or…
