Forest Ecstasy and the Bluebirds of My Happiness

One Fall afternoon, during my college days, I ditched class for a self indulgent escape from the hectic work and school schedule, which had all but drained me dry. I drove alone out to Cave Run Lake and to my delight found it completely void of other humans. It was a gorgeous day, just chill … Continue reading

A Hero Stumbles, Alex Wubbels and the Failure to Pursue Justice

It took a viral video to even get this far with the people in positions of power and authority to actually do something, other than the obligatory department internal investigation. The officer should have been immediately suspended from duty from the body cam video alone, until determination of what possible criminal charges should have been made for such offenses. As late as yesterday, Wubbels was interviewed and as she had stated previously in a press conference the day prior, she had not made up her mind as to whether or not she would bring civil suits against the officers involved or the police department itself.

When listening to her statements, that is when it occurred to me that here was one of the greatest opportunities ever to bring to light the all too common practice of police overstepping their legal boundaries and police violating rights of common people. I have watched countless video clips of police staging unconstitutional DUI stops, involving mandatory blood draws on demand, roadside strip and body cavity searches and too many more things to even list here. None of this has ever sparked the outrage that one overworked, nurse/mother in charge of a burn unit has caused. Americans love their nurses. It’s likely the most respected job in the U.S. today. It’s a tough job. Most people at some point in their lives are exposed to them. The public understands and appreciates the efforts of these largely unsung heroes, who do battle on behalf of others every single shift. You can tell just by looking at Wubbles on duty in the video, that she’s seen a lot of battles and is like most nurses, weary from the effort. She has that look of the typical nurse who works on a high stress, critical care unit. I’ve been in burn units before and even I don’t know how those nurses do it. It’s the most horrifying, painful, heartbreaking specialties that exists. I salute any nurse who’s ever done that job. People are moved by the kind of dedication it requires to do these jobs day in day out. Many people would never choose a career that hard and more could never even do it. It’s really that difficult, and that’s why the public loves them. Continue reading

Did the NSA lead a soft coup d’etat?

This article is being publish now in light of the recent article by The Nation, entitled: A New Report Raises Big Questions About Last Year’s DNC Hack. Former NSA experts say it wasn’t a hack at all, but a leak—an inside job by someone with access to the DNC’s system. By Patrick Lawrence, AUGUST 9, … Continue reading

Neoliberalism is a species of fascism

Originally posted on OffGuardian:
by Manuela Cadelli, President of the Magistrates’ Union of Belgium, via Defend Democracy The time for rhetorical reservations is over. Things have to be called by their name to make it possible for a co-ordinated democratic reaction to be initiated, above all in the public services. Liberalism was a doctrine derived …

Why “Safe Places” Are Necessary In Our Universities; Individualism Will Not Be Tolerated

Today’s society prevents the formation of individuality by conditioning people all the way from primary to secondary school and now more than half of them are subjected further advanced indoctrination into collectivist thinking at the university level. They are programed to think what is “right”, but most lose the ability to “think” what is right any longer. Continue reading

U.S. Boots on the Ground Syria; The Stage Now Set For A False Flag

Non-linear warfare propaganda at its finest Tonight while America was ordering their Friday night pizza and settling in to watch game 3 of the World Series,  the White House announced that Special Forces are now being deployed in Syria. This would appear to be a set-up for a false flag. Anyone who would believe that … Continue reading

Living in the Economic Skinner Box of Learned Helplessness: The Collective Victim

“Press bar to receive pellet for correct response of helplessness.” Collectivist victim mentality has been induced on a mass scale in the West. It’s learned helplessness by design. This is exactly the mind-set which allows all of the economic rape and pillage by the global banking cartel to continue. People recognize that they are being … Continue reading

In today’s news, what you should think:

The ongoing stock market crashes have nothing to do with the government allowing the Federal Reserve to shovel the banks TRILLION$ of dollars over the past 7 years at zero interest to speculate on and pump up the stock markets. Your 401K is safe and the dollar is strong. The refugees flowing into Europe are … Continue reading

Homosexuality and Chimerism, Rethinking Our DNA

Why is such an obvious possible biological cause of homosexuality being ignored? It has perplexed me for a number of years now that the scientific community has not come to the conclusion that homosexuality is predominately genetically based. It doesn’t require an advanced degree in reproductive genetics to connect the dots and come to a conclusion which … Continue reading

The Populist Cry For Glass-Steagall

Is the New Glass-Steagall a Trojan Horse? The housing crash of 2008 wiped out over $6 trillion dollars in American assets and dropped household net worths by almost 40%.  Not only that but the banking debacle also cost an additional $26 trillion in bailouts and another $3.6 trillion in Quantitative Easing. The latter was to keep interest … Continue reading
