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:
  https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/04/socialist_venezuela_now_an_exploding_supernova_of_spreading_infectious_disease_.html

“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.

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?
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-04-11-investigators-expose-mass-forced-organ-harvesting-in-communist-china.html

“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.

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):
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-04-13-health-freedom-alert-britain-to-ban-everyone-from-discussing-vaccines.html

“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.

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:
  https://www.livescience.com/65092-alcohol-cigarettes-cancer-risk.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190330-ls

“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 Problem with Fruit. Yes, Fruit By Mrs Vera West

     While most health-conscious people support the idea of increasing our fruit and vegetable intake, this new mantra requires qualification. Fruits are often high in fructose, and many people, unknow to themselves have trouble digesting it, leading to range of upsets:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-04-04-people-who-have-trouble-digesting-fructose.html

“Studies done here in America have shown that more than 50 percent of the population cannot process more than 25 g of fructose, which can easily be found in just a couple of apples. More than 80 percent cannot process 50 grams of fructose. So what happens to the fructose that is not absorbed by the body? It travels down into the large intestine where it ferments and creates gas. This bloating feeling is common after eating for many people, and this simple thing could very well be the cause. Many people, even those with a fructose intolerance, can often eat fruit but those with a sensitive stomach will more than likely end up with a gurgling gut as the gas moves through it. One way to combat the bloat is to eat foods that have both fructose and glucose as glucose makes fructose easier to absorb. There are many fruits that have a near equal ratio of fructose to glucose such as peaches and grapes. Those like apples, watermelons, and pineapple will still cause problems with the higher levels of fructose that they contain.

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.
  https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-two-americas-have-grown-much-fiercer-11553816463?

     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.

Is The Contraceptive Pill Racist? By Mrs Vera West

     Now it looks like even the contraceptive pill is racist in the brave new world of political correctness:
  https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/birth-control-pills-affect-womens-taste/

“A study published in August in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, however, suggests that women on the pill undergo a shift in preference toward men who share similar MHC genes. The female subjects were more likely to rate these genetically similar men’s scents (via a T-shirt the men had worn for two nights) as pleasant and desirable after they went on the pill as compared with before. Although no one knows why the pill affects attraction, some scientists believe that pregnancy—or in this case, the hormonal changes that mimic pregnancy—draws women toward nurturing relatives. Women who start or stop taking the pill, then, may be in for some relationship problems. A study published last year in Psychological Science found that women paired with MHC-similar men are less sexually satisfied and more likely to cheat on their partners than women paired with MHC-dissimilar men. So a woman on the pill, for example, might be more likely to start dating a MHC-similar man, but he could ultimately leave her less sexually satisfied. Then if she goes off the pill during the relationship, the accompanying hormonal changes will draw her even more strongly toward more MHC-dissimilar men. These immune genes may have a “powerful effect in terms of how well relationships are cemented,” says University of Liverpool psychologist Craig Roberts, co-author of the August paper.”

Medical Martial Law? By Mrs Vera West

     It gets more oppressive by the day. Now there is medical martial law in New York, and what happens in Zoo York, soon gets replicated across the decaying West:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-26-medical-martial-law-rolled-out-in-new-york-unvaccinated-citizens-banned.html

“Health Freedom Alert: Medical martial law has been rolled out in Rockland County, New York, where unvaccinated citizens are now barred from all public places — including schools, sidewalks, malls, churches and public transportation — all under the absurd quack science fraud that claims measles is only spread by unvaccinated people. In truth, the measles vaccine spreads the measles through “viral shedding” and improperly weakened viral strains. If the measles vaccine really worked, why would vaccinated people have anything to fear from the unvaccinated, anyway? “Effective at the stroke of midnight, Wednesday, anyone who is under 18 years of age and unvaccinated against the measles will be barred from public places until this declaration expires in 30 days or until they receive the MMR vaccination,” reports NBC New York. County officials told NBC New York that they would “not chase people down,” yet are threatening six months of jail for anyone found to be in violation of the tyrannical declaration.

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:
  https://www.smh.com.au/business/small-business/australian-entrepreneurs-sell-cans-of-clean-air-to-china-20160502-gojugx.html

“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.

Double-Banger Births! By Brian Simpson

     This is something that I once pondered, but now I need to ponder no longer, since a woman can give birth, then give birth again, a month or so later.
  https://www.livescience.com/65104-woman-gives-birth-twice-double-uterus.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190329-ls

“When a woman in Bangladesh gave birth to her first child in February, everything seemed pretty normal. But she shocked her doctors when she went into labor again only about a month later, this time giving birth to twins, according to news reports. How is this possible? The woman had two uteruses, a condition called uterus didelphys, and she was carrying babies in both wombs. The 20-year-old woman first gave birth to a baby boy in late February, and was released from the hospital after a normal delivery, according to CNN. But 26 days later, she started having lower abnormal pain, and went to a different hospital. That's when doctors performed an ultrasound and saw that she had two uteruses, and was carrying twins in one of them. The doctors performed an emergency cesarean section to deliver the twins.

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:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-06/mysterious-drug-resistant-germ-deemed-urgent-threat-quietly-sweeping-globe
  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/06/health/drug-resistant-candida-auris.html

“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.

Cat Cannibalism By Brian Simpson

     I found this interesting; what scientific reason is there for feeding cat bits to cats? Sounds crazy, but as usual … it’s science:
  https://www.livescience.com/65038-why-usda-conducted-experiments-cat-cannibalism.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190324-ls

“A new watchdog report claims that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been purchasing cats and dogs at meat markets abroad to use in gruesome experiments here in the United States. The experiments, according to the report, involved feeding their body parts to healthy cats as well as injecting them into mice. The report was published online yesterday (March 20) by a nonprofit organization called The White Coat Waste Project. It says that the experiments were conducted by the USDA's Agricultural Research Service in the name of research that had a very limited impact on improving public health. he purpose was to research toxoplasmosis, an infection caused by the common parasite Toxoplasma gondii, said Justin Goodman, the vice president of The White Coat Waste Project, who helped write the report. Toxoplasmosis is one of the most common parasitic infections in the world, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is also a leading cause of death due to foodborne illness in the U.S.

Trump Finally Attacks the Universities, The Source of Almost all Evil By James Reed

     As long-term readers would know, I have been championing a campaign the close down the universities for some years now. Sometimes it seems that someone is listening. Why, I even wrote to the White House to see if President Trump would do anything, such as cut funding to starve the cancer. I did not get a reply, but maybe someone in the office got the idea and passed it on:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-04-trump-announces-executive-order-universities-free-speech.html

“Upset that conservatives continue to be silenced, banned, and even attacked on America’s increasingly Left-wing college campuses, POTUS Donald Trump said on Saturday he’s prepared to fire a financial warning shot across their bows. Speaking to a packed, enthusiastic crowd at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, the president said he was preparing to sign an executive order denying federal funds to any college or university that did not protect all students’ First Amendment rights to free speech. “Today I am proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars,” the president said after bringing Hayden Williams on stage with him, who was sucker punched by a Left-wing activist at the University of California-Berkeley last month. As reported by The National Sentinel, police at UC-Berkley arrested Zachary Greenberg, 28, about 1 p.m. Friday after a judge issued an arrest warrant for the February 19 attack on Williams, 26. Several videos of the attack show Greenberg verbally berating Williams before punching him in the face, then physically assaulting him.

Chinese Eugenics, Race and Super-Babies By Brian Simpson

     While decadent scientists, if they can be called that, deny that race exists, the Chinese are blasting ahead with race-based eugenics, making a ironic  lie to the socialist sciences of the West:
  https://www.technologyreview.com/s/612997/the-crispr-twins-had-their-brains-altered/

“The brains of two genetically edited girls born in China last year may have been changed in ways that enhance cognition and memory, scientists say. The twins, called Lulu and Nana, reportedly had their genes modified before birth by a Chinese scientific team using the new editing tool CRISPR. The goal was to make the girls immune to infection by HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Now, new research shows that the same alteration introduced into the girls’ DNA, deletion of a gene called CCR5, not only makes mice smarter but also improves human brain recovery after stroke, and could be linked to greater success in school. “The answer is likely yes, it did affect their brains,” says Alcino J. Silva, a neurobiologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, whose lab uncovered a major new role for the CCR5 gene in memory and the brain’s ability to form new connections. “The simplest interpretation is that those mutations will probably have an impact on cognitive function in the twins,” says Silva. He says the exact effect on the girls’ cognition is impossible to predict, and “that is why it should not be done.”

Sexuality, Health and the Welfare of Lesbians By Mrs Vera West

     If I have read my notes from last year’s Cultural Studies class, which for a joke I enrolled in at the local uni., that health and sexuality are intrinsically intertwined. Thus, lesbians are eternally discriminated against in this oppressive patriarchal, racist, discriminatory, racist, bad, bad, more bad, society, so they are fatter than heterosexual women, and that leads to health problems, or so the bad, bad, racist, bad, health establishment, patriarchal, bad, bad, bad, etc.,  say:
  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2019/02/21/lesbians-likely-overweight-experts-find-sexuality-linked-health/

“A new study reveals that sexual orientation may be an indicator of weight and health. In a report published in the Journal of Public Health, researchers at University College London and University of East Anglia in the UK say that lesbian and bisexual women are more likely to be overweight than their heterosexual female counterparts. Conversely, they also found that gay men are less likely to be overweight than straight men. Lead researcher Dr. Joanna Semlyen believes certain “psychosocial stressors” put on the homosexual community in particular make sexual identity a valid “social determinant of health.” She tells The Guardian, “These stressors include homophobia and heterosexism … and are known to be linked to health.” Results on either side of the sexual orientation spectrum are “worrying,” says Semlyen, as there are a number of health concerns associated with being overweight and underweight. This study collected data from 12 UK national health surveys consisting of 93,429 participants, and is considered the first of its kind to investigate a correlation between sexual identity and body mass index. Semlyen notes that these surveys did not record sexual orientation until 2008.”

The Trauma of Censorship By Bruce Bennett

     This is something which I had not considered; the psychological effects of those plebs working for Big Tech, censoring all of us.
  https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/25/18229714/cognizant-facebook-content-moderator-interviews-trauma-working-conditions-arizona

FINDINGS
•    Moderators in Phoenix will make just $28,800 per year — while the average Facebook employee has a total compensation of $240,000.
•    In stark contrast to the perks lavished on Facebook employees, team leaders micro-manage content moderators’ every bathroom break. Two Muslim employees were ordered to stop praying during their nine minutes per day of allotted “wellness time.”
•    Employees can be fired after making just a handful of errors a week, and those who remain live in fear of former colleagues returning to seek vengeance. One man we spoke with started bringing a gun to work to protect himself.
•    Employees have been found having sex inside stairwells and a room reserved for lactating mothers, in what one employee describes as “trauma bonding.”
•    Moderators cope with seeing traumatic images and videos by telling dark jokes about committing suicide, then smoking weed during breaks to numb their emotions. Moderators are routinely high at work.
•    Employees are developing PTSD-like symptoms after they leave the company, but are no longer eligible for any support from Facebook or Cognizant.
•    Employees have begun to embrace the fringe viewpoints of the videos and memes that they are supposed to moderate. The Phoenix site is home to a flat Earther and a Holocaust denier. A former employee tells us he no longer believes 9/11 was a terrorist attack.”

Three Cheers for Chinese Brain Control! By Uncle Len with No Brain, or Control

     One of my as yet unfulfilled ambitions in life is to create super-smart rat cyborgs that can be steered through a maze with the power of human thought. And now, our friendly Chinese overlords, bless them, have done just that, so now I can die in peace:

“I’ll just come right out and say it: Scientists have created human-controlled rat cyborgs. Lest you think this is some media sensationalism at work, here’s the actual title of the paper under discussion, which came out last week in Scientific Reports: “Human Mind Control of Rat Cyborg’s Continuous Locomotion with Wireless Brain-to-Brain Interface.” That pretty much says it all. Some of this tech — such as brain-brain interfaces (BBIs) and rat cyborgs — is nothing new in science, so in a way this just a small step in an already existing race. But, put another way: people are controlling rat cyborgs with their freaking brains now. Wirelessly.

Vaccinations at Gun Point, Live Born Aborted Babies, Necks Broken! Business as Usual! By Mrs Vera West

     The ruling elites have known for thousands of years, that the plebs will take a lot before they crack, and will only be a problem if there is some Spartacus (111-71 BC) to lead their slave revolt. That is why much energy of the elites is put into humiliating President Trump, to make an example of him, and why various smaller Alt Right figures are getting their sites closed down, and some imprisoned. See, resistance is impossible, just lie back and decay.  You can’t win, they say:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-27-serious-question-when-will-the-first-vaccine-enforcers-be-shot-by-parents-defending-their-children.html

“The political Left in America today now openly advocates the murder of living human babies, even after they’re born. This is part of the new abortion legislation that has been passed and signed into law in both New York and Vermont… and the entire idea of killing human babies in the name of “women’s rights” is spreading to more states, much to the applause of Democrats who cheer the new “right” to kill babies with your bare hands. One abortionist recently told a former patient they would, “break the baby’s neck” if it survived an abortion attempt, reports LifeSiteNews: The woman said she asked the two abortionists, “If you guys were to take him out right now while he’s still, his heart rate is still, you know, going, what would you guys do?” She said one of the abortionists looked at the other one, then looked back at her, “and she told me that we don’t tell women this, and a lot of women don’t even ask this question, but if we was to proceed with the abortion and the baby was to come out still alive and active, most likely we would break the baby’s neck.”

NSAID Pain Killers and Heart Attacks By Mrs Vera West

     If you have a bad back like me, then this is something that should concern you:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-25-common-painkillers-are-associated-with-heart-attacks.html

“Overuse of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are associated with a higher incidence of coronary health risks. Did you know that taking too much Motrin, Aleve, and Advil can put you at increased risk of having a heart attack? A new study warns against overuse of over-the-counter pain killers such as diclofenac, naproxen, and ibuprofen. The five-year study out of Denmark monitored 100,000 people who had recently suffered a heart attack. About half of the patients were prescribed an NSAID and the other half were not. The researchers followed the patients for one year and found out that the NSAID users were 60 percent more likely to die from a second heart attack in a year’s time, compared to the patients who did not take an NSAID. For every 100 patients who took an NSAID, there were 20 deaths within one year. For every 100 who didn’t take a pain drug, there were 12 deaths. The correlation continued into the fifth year, with 9.5 deaths per 100 NSAID users and only 6 deaths per 100 in the non-medicated group.
