Eat Insects before Insects Eat You! By Brian “the Brain” Simpson

     Yo, thanks to Chris for digging this tasty story out from the survivalist woodpile, where all the insects are. And, as the thunder roars and lightening flashes across the Melbourne skies, and I wonder if I will get electrocuted typing this article, we may have to eat insects so that everybody has enough food to continue reproducing to produce food crisis 2.0, and so on until there is no room even for the insects on the planet:

“As an alternative to meat, one scientist has suggested that humans will acquire the habit of eating maggots in order to reach their protein intake requirements. “Maggot sausages” will be the “meat” of the future according to an Australian scientist, Dr. Louwrens Hoffman. Food scientists at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia are incorporating insects such as maggots and locusts into a range of specialty foods, including sausage, as well as formulating sustainable insect-based feeds for the livestock themselves. “Would you eat a commercial sausage made from maggots? What about other insect larvae and even whole insects like locusts? The biggest potential for sustainable protein production lies with insects and new plant sources,” said Dr. Hoffman. Hoffman says that the meat industry is not sustainable, but people can start eating insects instead. “An overpopulated world is going to struggle to find enough protein unless people are willing to open their minds, and stomachs, to a much broader notion of food,” said Hoffman.

Insanity USA By Chris Knight

     A quickie proof of the insanity of contemporary America. After the failed CIA coup in Venezuela, the UY,  a country which is oh so concerned about other nations “interfering” in its politics in any way, even exposing evil doings, now has put all the cards on the table regarding Venezuela. That means full military invasion. Yet, the elites fight to allow the Mexican border be open regardless of who comes in. This is beyond pathological, and is nothing more than a country in the terminal stages of death.

“The primary objective of the American Left — and, really, the global Left — is the destruction of the United States as founded, period. … Thus, if you look at the issues that are important to Democrats and you examine their political objectives and view the policies they pursue through this lens, you can begin to understand why they do the things they do. Take the migrant invasion currently occurring along our U.S.-Mexico border. To any rational American, the right thing to do would be to give the president and our governing institutions all the diplomatic, financial, and physical tools required to secure it. But instead, Democrats fight the president tooth and nail. And what’s happening? Not only are the migrants overwhelming our ability to handle the onslaught, because of the way our laws are written — and because Democrats refuse to work with Republicans and the president to change them — federal immigration officials have been forced to release disease-ridden migrants into our cities, thus exposing Americans to diseases we eradicated long ago.

Fructose on the Brain By Mrs Vera West

     I have written some articles linking material putting the case that some fruits, being high in fructose, may need to be rationed, even though these fruit contain highly beneficial nutrients. This is somewhat paradoxical, but we live in an inane world, where layers upon layers of contradictions confront us daily. Here is more information about health concerns about fructose:

“… the sweetener affects numerous genes in the brain. Fructose causes gene alterations that are linked to serious diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes. However, the researchers from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) who conducted the study also said that these harmful changes can be reversed by the omega-3 fatty acid DHA. So eating healthy foods rich in omega-3s can restore the health of people who consume unhealthy amounts of fructose. For their study, the researchers examined the genes, pathways, and networks affected by fructose. They first taught rats how to escape from a maze then divided the trained animals into three groups. They gave the rats in the first and second group water containing the same amount of fructose found in a liter of soda but they also fed the second group foods rich in DHA. Meanwhile, they did not give the third group any sweetened water or DHA. The rats lived on those diets for six weeks. Then the researchers returned them to the same maze to test their memory. (Related: Are you one of the 60 percent of people who have trouble digesting fructose?)

The World Just Keeps Getting Sadder By Bruce Bennett

     Look, it can’t be as bad as you guys keep saying. Sure, Rome collapsed, a long time ago, but we have technology and the internet, there is still some sunshine, and I had a good steak meal last night, washed down with a few cold beers. What could possibly be wrong?

“According to a major analysis of global well-being, the world really is getting more miserable. Human beings worldwide are sadder, angrier and more fearful than they have ever been before.  Something just isn’t right on Earth. In Gallup’s annual Global State of Emotions report, all three emotions (sadness, anger, and fear) rose to record levels in 2018, for the second consecutive year. Chad took the undesirable honor of being the world’s most negative country. Wrought with war, political crisis, and human rights violations, the country is the world’s worst in terms of emotional health, according to CNN. Gallup charted humanity’s prolonged slump by holding 151,000 interviews in 2018 with adults in more than 140 countries. It has measured emotions annually since 2006. In 2018, about 4 in 10 people said they experienced a lot of worry the day before the interview, while a third said they were stressed and nearly 3 in 10 said they felt a lot of physical pain.

Japan and Vaccinations By Mrs Vera West

     If there must be mandatory vaccinations, and all the hysteria we see in Australia and the United States, with people virtually vaccinated at gun point,

what about the more laid-back Japan? It should be wiggling out the door with disease, but it is not:

Electric Cars and the Colonial Exploitation of Children Miners By James Reed

     I continue my conceptual rampage against the Greenies’ most sacred icon, next to illegal migrants, electric cars.

“Picking through a mountain of huge rocks with his tiny bare hands, the exhausted little boy makes a pitiful sight. His name is Dorsen and he is one of an army of children, some just four years old, working in the vast polluted mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where toxic red dust burns their eyes, and they run the risk of skin disease and a deadly lung condition. Here, for a wage of just 8p a day, the children are made to check the rocks for the tell-tale chocolate-brown streaks of cobalt – the prized ingredient essential for the batteries that power electric cars. And it’s feared that thousands more children could be about to be dragged into this hellish daily existence – after the historic pledge made by Britain to ban the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2040 and switch to electric vehicles. Dorsen, just eight, is one of 40,000 children working daily in the mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The terrible price they will pay for our clean air is ruined health and a likely early death.

Blame it on Pesticides By Mrs Vera West

     One is supposed to be conspiratorial, if not “racist’ for blaming disorders like autism on pesticides. How dare anyone criticise our beautiful Big Agri! But, then there is this newly released paper in the British Medical Journal:

“Objective To examine associations between early developmental exposure to ambient pesticides and autism spectrum disorder. Design Population based case-control study. Setting California’s main agricultural region, Central Valley, using 1998-2010 birth data from the Office of Vital Statistics. Population 2961 individuals with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition, revised (up to 31 December 2013), including 445 with intellectual disability comorbidity, were identified through records maintained at the California Department of Developmental Services and linked to their birth records. Controls derived from birth records were matched to cases 10:1 by sex and birth year. Exposure Data from California state mandated Pesticide Use Reporting were integrated into a geographic information system tool to estimate prenatal and infant exposures to pesticides (measured as pounds of pesticides applied per acre/month within 2000 m from the maternal residence). 11 high use pesticides were selected for examination a priori according to previous evidence of neurodevelopmental toxicity in vivo or in vitro (exposure defined as ever v never for each pesticide during specific developmental periods).

Genetically Engineering Australia By Brian Simpson

     It was the night before Christmas … no, it was not. Rather, it was the day before the federal election was called:

“The day before the Federal election was called, the Government quietly announced changes to Australia’s Gene Technology Regulations that will allow a raft of new genetically modified (GM) animals, plants and microbes to enter our environment and food chain with no safety assessment and potentially no labelling. These include super-muscled pigs, non-browning mushrooms, and wheat with powdery mildew-resistance. The deregulation comes as a new study adds to the growing body of evidencethat new GM techniques such as CRISPR are not as safe as claimed. The study found that in 50 per cent of the cells looked at, the use of CRISPR resulted in unexpected effects, including the production of new proteins. There is a risk that these proteins could be novel toxins or allergens. It is vital that GM animals, plants and microbes produced in this way are assessed for safety before being released into our environment and our food chain.”

Smoking Poo, Yeah Baby! By James Reed

     I have never smoked “dope,” but it is the drug of my degenerate baby boomer generation. Thus, I had to laugh at this one, that smokers may be smoking dried human poo, and good for them, too.

“A Spanish pharmacologist purchased ninety samples of hash off the streets of Madrid, Spain and put them under the microscope. Fellow researchers from Complutense University learned that 88.3 percent of the samples were not suitable for human consumption because they contained exorbitant levels of E. coli bacteria derived from the anuses and intestinal tracts of drug traffickers. Lead researcher Manuel Pérez Moreno says that drug traffickers are wrapping the hash in some plastic and swallowing it to get it past authorities. After the hash is concealed in their intestines, the traffickers use a laxative to get the hash out of their body so it can be retrieved and sold illegally on the streets.

Immigration Obsessed, and Technologically Challenged Economists By Chris Knight

     Here is the typical special pleading to increase immigration, this time from the United States. It has the same structure as the articles that we get tossed at us by the media here. Why do they bloody bother, since they will do what they will with a dopey population who have zero resistance? And, who are these articles addressed to since the elites who might read them agree anyway? Why waste data? So many questions, so few answers.

“We have unprecedented levels of low unemployment in America. It could even be said that we really have too many jobs and not enough people to fill them. While this currently isn’t a problem, it will soon have devastating impacts on our nation’s economic stability, and the only answer is to increase immigration to America. In the past 60 years, the birthrate in the United States has decreased by over 50 percent and is only falling faster. This is not by design. There are multiple factors contributing to this trend: people are getting married later and having kids later in life, women are focusing on their careers more than ever before, and contraception has become more effective.

Things are Moving Ever More Quickly in the Vaccination Wonderland By Mrs Vera West

     First it was banning doctors and nurses from saying anything critical of the vaccination industry. Then there were Facebook bans. But the U Decay (UK), now ramps up the volume, as the young people say (if they still do):

“Facebook has already implemented a plan to weed out information that is critical of pharmaceutical companies and their vaccine policies. For example, groups on Facebook may share information on measles, but they cannot share information on vaccine adverse events because this might cause “vaccine hesitancy.” “Hate speech” policies are now used to censor “dangerous” ideas – ideas that certain people just don’t agree with. Information that criticizes the Democrat party is now deemed “disinfo” from Russia, and can be censored out of social media using filters and algorithms. The Russia collusion hoax has led Twitter to shadow ban conservative ideas, as they claim to “protect American democracy” from foreign interference.

Censoring Natural News, Naturally By Chris Knight

     Natural my favourite site for juicy news items must be doing something right since now it has been deplatformed by Twister, YouTube and Google, which is quite an achievement.

     Oops, that article is a pretty angry one, naming names and flinging mud far and wide. And, it is best that we self-censor, and not go there. Someone might censor our Twitter, where writers here act like bigger twits than they do normally. No, actually, I don’t think that anyone has any of this, so what does it matter? Forget that I even said this. Please! I am sorry I even wrote this and humbly beg google not to vaporise me with its goooogle gargle magic.

China Harvests Organs, So it Must be Ok By Peter Ewer

     Premise one: whatever China does is morally correct. Premise two: China harvests human organs. Conclusion: therefore, it is morally correct to harvest human organs. Is that Socratic argument being taught in the schools yet? How about now?

“Back in 2016, we reported on an illicit organ trading scheme taking place in communist China, where still-living political prisoners were having their vital organs plucked from their bodies to facilitate the organ demands of “transplant tourists.” Well, this highly unethical practice is apparently still going on, undercover investigators have revealed – even though the Chinese government once promised to put an end to the horrific practice – and it’s all essentially happening right in plain sight. According to reports, undercover investigators in Canada recently decided to deepen a more than decade-long probe into what had been longstanding allegations of forced organ harvesting in China, which is said to specifically target Falun Gong prisoners of conscience. What they found is that hospitals throughout China are still wheeling and dealing high-dollar body parts on-demand to wealthy buyers, and without consequence. Human rights lawyer David Matas, along with former Secretary of State David Kilgour, were among the first to uncover evidence as far back as 2006 showing that Falun Gong prisoners of conscience were being used as literal human resources to generate large profits from the sale of their vital organs on the black market. They later published a report entitled, Bloody Harvest: The Killing of Falun Gong for Their Organs, which concluded that the frightening suspicions of what continues to go on in China are, in fact, true.

Want Exploding Supernovas of Infectious Diseases? Then Go Socialist! By Peter West

     Wow, I just lived the concept of an exploding supernova of infectious disease, truly a literacy masterpiece thinking up that metaphor, mixing cosmology and epidemiology in a fatal brew. But, that’s what happens when socialism is let out of its bottle:

“So much for all that free health care. Now for what it looks like up close: Socialist Venezuela is an exploding supernova of spreading disease vectors, with its three million fleeing refugees bringing measles, malaria, diptheria, typhoid fever, tuberculosis, AIDS, Zika, leprosy, dengue, chikungunya virus, and other diseases long thought to have been eradicated in the early 20th century, with them. What an advertisement for socialism that is.
It's the effect of the collapse of the country's medical system, brought on by socialism's unsustainable economics and Venezuela's Maduro dictatorship (unlike a lot of starving African countries) refusing to permit any aid to enter. Two alarming news reports (which eerily don't intersect) have the exact same story: First, the Washington Post, which cites an academic-NGO report just out: Venezuela's health system is in "utter collapse," according to a report, including the exponential spread of vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles and diphtheria and "dramatic surges" in infectious diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis.

No More Critiques of Vaccination: I Surrender! By Mrs Vera West

     Well, win some (maybe one), lose most. On the vaccination issue, the anti-vaxxers have been soundly defeated. Does it really matter? I am sure that there will be more severe health issues set to eliminate most of the population anyway, so energies of this old lady are best served fighting other fights. After all, what is a bit of mercury between friends?

“Australian nurses and midwives who dare to speak out against the dangers of vaccinations, regarding deadly mercury contents, foetal tissue and other harmful ingredients, on social media or in person will be prosecuted, the Australian government has warned, urging members of the public to report vaccine skeptics to the authorities. Medical professional face a jail sentence of 10 years for expressing doubt about the effectiveness of vaccinations or urging further studies into vaccine safety. Opponents of the new law claim free speech and scientific integrity is under attack in Australia by a government that has been bought and paid for by Big Pharma. “With no exceptions we expect all registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives to use the best available evidence in making practice decisions. This includes providing information to the public about public health issues,” Chair of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Dr. Lynette Cusack said in a statement.

The 5 G Apocalypse Cometh By Brian Simpson

     This is all to hard for me to summarise, but the dangers of the 5 G networks extend far beyond radiation health effects, and go right into mind and soul control! Just watch this incredible video if you are feeling too happy and do not have enough things to worry about. It is endgame in globo land: 

More Bad News for Little Old Wine Drinkers By Mrs Vera West

     Here is more evidence for my perhaps futile campaign against alcohol consumption, and for a renewed Temperance League:

“Drinking a bottle of wine per week may be like smoking five to 10 cigarettes in the same time period, in terms of cancer risk, according to a new study from the United Kingdom. The study, published today (March 28) in the journal BMC Public Health, is the first to estimate the "cigarette equivalent" of alcohol, with regard to cancer risk. The researchers found that the increase in cancer risk tied to drinking one bottle of wine per week is equivalent to smoking five cigarettes per week for men and 10 cigarettes per week for women. The goal of the research is to better convey the cancer risks that are tied to moderate alcohol consumption, which is generally thought to be less harmful than smoking cigarettes. Indeed, studies in both the U.S. and U.K. have found that many people aren't aware of alcohol's link to cancer. For example, a 2017 survey from the American Society of Clinical Oncology found that 70 percent of Americans didn't know that drinking alcohol is a risk factor for cancer.

The Trump Administration is Insane, at the Obama/Clinton Level of Insanity By Charles Taylor

     A large number of articles from mainstream sources have commented on the growing hostile cultural divide between the two America, on the one hand, the cosmopolitans mainly urban elites from the big cities, and on the other, the localists, mainly unfortunate deplorable Trump voters from rural and other regions.

     Meanwhile, Trump has gone back on every election promise that he made, and openly champions mass immigration and the displacement of American workers. While doing this, he continues the neo con mania of engaging in wars that the global elites want, with the invasion of Venezuela currently being floated. This is done even given stern warning by Russia not to intervene.

Selling Air to China! By James Reed

     I wondered how long before someone would be selling air. I remember reading a comic as a kid, where in some futuristic dystopia, bottled water was sold for $1, and I threw the comic down in disgust thinking that it was too far over the top. But, here we are with air now being sold:

“China's breathtaking appetite for all things Australian - iron ore, real estate and baby formula - has gone sky high. Now Chinese people could soon be getting a taste for Australian air, if two Sydney entrepreneurs have their way. John Dickinson and Theo Ruygrok have devised a way to bottle the air we breathe freely and are selling cans of pure Yarra Valley atmosphere for $18.80 each. "We want to give people internationally a chance to taste what our beautiful air is like," Mr Dickinson said. They already sell bottled air from the Blue Mountains, Bondi Beach, the Yarra Valley, New Zealand and Tasmania, and are looking to harvest the atmospheric blend from additional locations around the country. Mr Dickinson said the cans had been intended as a novelty souvenir item to give tourists the chance to "take a bit of Australia home with them", but Chinese buyers had seized on the health aspects. He said China's emerging middle class was becoming more worried about the country's poor air quality. "There is real interest in having some clean air from places they trust," he said. They are right to be nervous about what they breathe in. Research has found that China's poor air quality contributes to the deaths of more than 1.6 million people there each year - that's more than the population of Adelaide. Inner-city pollution is so bad that a Beijing traffic cop is lucky to make to the age of 43, because of constant exposure to car exhaust and dirty air.

The Plagues to Come By Brian Simpson

     It would not be end times without the re-emergence of good old fashion pestilence. And, it is back, for another record performance:

“Last May, an elderly man was admitted to the Brooklyn branch of Mount Sinai Hospital for abdominal surgery. A blood test revealed that he was infected with a newly discovered germ as deadly as it was mysterious. Doctors swiftly isolated him in the intensive care unit. The germ, a fungus called Candida auris, preys on people with weakened immune systems, and it is quietly spreading across the globe. Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain, forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa. Recently C. auris reached New York, New Jersey and Illinois, leading the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to add it to a list of germs deemed “urgent threats.” The man at Mount Sinai died after 90 days in the hospital, but C. auris did not. Tests showed it was everywhere in his room, so invasive that the hospital needed special cleaning equipment and had to rip out some of the ceiling and floor tiles to eradicate it.
