Vaccine Rant: Yet Another Reason Why John Oliver Is A Total Douchebag

July 14, 2017

John Oliver first made his big splash on the Daily Show when he was a welcome diversion between John Stewart’s wonky facial expressions and jeery comedy routines. He since graduated to have his own show Last Week Tonight on HBO.

Oliver can at times be incredibly funny – we’ll give him that. Even when you don’t fully agree with him, he can make you laugh. If you’re moderately informed about the state of the world, however, Oliver can come across as a more humorous version of Piers Morgan. In other words, a douche bag.

So after shilling for corporations, the Democratic Party and against individual rights, it might be helpful to make a few points as to why Oliver is what he is.

The vaccine rant

Last Week Tonight is not so much a new show as it is a comedy show and it is not so much a comedy show as it is a non-traditional form of televangelism. The same viewers tune in at the same time (actually, they watch it on the Internet) to hear Oliver rant, rave and preach confirmation bias and make them feel some level of comfort in a crazy world. The difference is that Oliver uses humor instead of screaming and spitting and he doesn’t pass the plate, well, maybe some screaming and spitting, but you get the idea.

At no time was Oliver so frantic than in his recent episode regarding vaccines where he lambasted vaccine critics and of course, Donald Trump, for daring to question Big Pharma.

Clarissa Explains It All: CNN Reporter Colludes With Terrorist To Create War Propaganda

July 17, 2017

Fresh on the heels of resignations of several CNN reporters due to their exaggerations, breach of ethics, and outright lies regarding the Trump-Russia story as well as the fact that a CNN in producer was caught on camera saying that the Russia story was “Bullshit” and that the “news organization” was indeed engaged in a witch hunt against Donald Trump, the embattled propaganda organization is now facing scrutiny over its close relationship with terrorists and the manner in which it presented them to the general public.

The particular reporter in question this time is the infamous anti-Assad, pro-terrorist Clarissa Ward who built her career based upon her incessant lie-riddled propaganda regarding the “crimes against humanity” committed by Bashar al-Assad’s government and the “bravery” of the Western-backed terrorists. Ward has long come under fire from informed observers in the alternative media and the poster boy of much of her reporting, Bilal Abdul Kareem, has even been criticized by more independent outlets like Alternet.

A recent piece by Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal, whose record on Syria has been better than most MSM writers but who also still leaves the path of imperialism open in many of his pieces, brought to light the obvious connection not only between Kareem and Ward but between CNN and the terrorist organizations it has so undyingly supported since the very beginning of the Syrian crisis.

CNN’s Clarissa Ward first entered Syria under the cover of being a tourist but, in reality, she was on a mission that was anything but sight-seeing. She acted as a wing of the Western-backed destabilization providing deceptive coverage and propaganda pieces for the Western proxies fighting on the ground.

Ward says, “Then, I sort of slipped off into an alleyway in the old city, put a headscarf on, and went and lived with some activists for a week.” When she got back, she had created what amounts to a campaign commercial for the terrorists in Syria, notably the Free Syrian Army. She described the FSA as fighters who “pledge to defend the Syrian people against the Assad regime.”

CIA Director Pompeo Admits Convincing Trump Over Disproven Chem Weapons Attack In Syria

Activist Post
July 15, 2017

Ever since the tragic and stupid launch of 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria by the United States took place in April, the entire incident has been represented as a one man show by the corporate and even by the alternative media. The corporate press, which virtually never gives Trump a break on any issue real or imagined, was strangely approving of The Donald after his war crime while his detractors in the alternative media were presenting the act as that of a madman who is frighteningly close to the red button.

On June 25, veteran journalist Seymour Hersh released a bombshell article revealing a number of facets regarding the alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheykhoun, Syria and the resulting volley of Tomahawk missiles fired by the United States at the al-Sha’aryat airbase in response. Hersh’s article provides the reader with what many of us already knew and wrote about at the time; i.e. that the Syrian military did not conduct a chemical weapons attack and that the United States was fully aware of that fact. Still, the U.S. government opted to use the attack as a justification for launching 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase that resulted in the deaths of Syrian soldiers, civilians, and children from the nearby village.

Hersh’s article shows that not all key personnel were on board with the decision to launch Tomahawk missiles at al-Sha’aryat or even of the whole Syria/Iraq mission. The article reveals real concerns amongst knowledgeable personnel that the Russians will not continue to act as the cooler heads and that Russia has long wanted peace in the region. Most notably, it reveals the fact that there is a “secret agenda” moving forward in regards to Syria, Iraq, and Russia. Hersh’s article also points to the President as the individual who made the decision to launch attacks in Syria, against the advice of the military and intelligence community. In fact, Hersh’s article makes the entire incident appear as if it were the Trump show from beginning to end.

CNN, Clarissa Ward Work With Nusra Terrorist To Create Propaganda, Try To Cover Tracks After The Fact

Many of these deeper connections have come to light as a result of Kareem’s anger at CNN for leaving him out of the credits for its propaganda series against the Syrian government. Kareem’s irritation is the result of the fact that the Undercover In Syria documentary, which both he and Clarissa Ward played a major role in, won the Peabody Award. However, while CNN and Clarissa Ward were showered with praise and Ward given the opportunity to give speeches about human rights to rooms full of bow-tie wearing propagandists, Kareem was not only left out of the spotlight, his name was reduced to a mere mention in the fine print (literally) of the Peabody press release and CNN apparently didn’t even mention his name at all. The reason for slighting Kareem was not fully addressed by the organization but it is abundantly clear that CNN did not want to draw any more attention to the fact that their documentary was produced with the help and in concert with a known terrorist.

U.S. Bases Strategically Placed To Prevent Syrian Military From Advancing; Outlining Borders Of Kurdistan

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 12, 2017

Despite the spits and spurts of World War Three, it seems the United States (at least part of the establishment) and Russia are beginning to move toward a cooling of their approaches to the Syrian crisis. While we have seen this many times in the past – the apparent mutual understanding of Russia and the U.S. – we have been consistently been rattled by an abrupt push by the United States toward a greater involvement in Syria and a push that could very well be the catalyst for a third world war.

While there obviously remains the possibility that the United States will once again lash out like a dying lunatic empire, risking the lives of everyone on earth, we might also ask whether or not the U.S. has had a change in strategy or even perhaps whether or not the American “Plan B” is coming to fruition.

U.S. Bases In Syria Set The Borders For A Federalized Country

The United States is currently, by stealth, setting up a situation in which it is firmly entrenched in its illegal occupation of Syrian territory. The American bases in Syria which have now reached a count of eight, possibly even nine according to some sources, follow along a distinct line of what will be the formation of the borders of a fractured Syria and the creation of a Kurdistan. Combined with Israel’s illegal occupation of the Golan Heights, the United States has set up a number of bases that traverse Kurdish held territory both in the North near Ayn al-Arab (Kobane) and all along the Turkish border as well as throughout the southeast of the country in territory taken by the Syria Democratic Forces, a brigade of fighters made up of Kurdish extremists and Islamic terrorists.

We’re Not Joking: Sen Schumer Wants The FDA To Crack Down On Raw Cacao

Brandon Turbeville
July 10, 2017

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) appears to be a man with way too much time on his hands. Either that, or he has grown temporarily bored with promoting the disproven conspiracy theories of Russian hacking.

Something is obviously amiss. What other explanation can there be for the Senator’s recent ridiculous campaign to force the FDA to begin regulating chocolate?

Schumer launched his initiative on Saturday in order to enlist the FDA in a fight to regulate “snortable chocolate” powder that is being used by some in clubs for euphoria and energy.

Schumer specifically targeted products like Coco Loko whose product is marketed as raw cacao snuff. The product includes powder that is made from raw cacao beans which contain caffeine.

Coco Loko also specifically contains other substances including taurine, guarana and ginkgo biloba.

While informing consumers of a potential risk if it exists is by no means a bad thing, it’s obvious that Schumer is simply following the same path as fellow idiot Jeff Sessions in promoting yet another extension to the drug war. Either that or his obsession compulsion with regulating, taxing, banning and bombing has become an actual psychosis.

Don’t believe me? Here’s a brief list of things that Chuck Schumer has tried to ban:


One In Two Chance Of Cancer In Canada As GMO Products Flood Food Supply

It’s been a familiar retort for the last decade, that correlation does not equal causation. That may be true but it is also true that correlation is irrelevant or that it has no bearing to causation.

Most reasonable people could agree that when it comes to health and human life, potential dangers should be examined from all possible angles. Unfortunately, members of government, media and the medical industry don’t seem to agree.

This is particularly true in the case of rising cancer numbers which experts claim to have them baffled. For instance, in an article published by the Canadian press in June 2017, it was announced by a new report from the Canadian Cancer Society that almost one in every two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Those numbers are staggering. So just think about that for a second. If you live in Canada, you have a 50/50 chance of being diagnosed with cancer.

This is an all-time high and cancer numbers are continuing to rise. Experts within the CCS expect to see a dramatic increase in the number of cancers diagnosed in Canada by 2030. But while these experts attempt to attribute those rising cancer cases to age, it’s obvious that such an explanation is not only too simplistic, it simply doesn’t line up with other statistics.

One thing not being discussed is the direct correlation between the introduction of genetically modified foods and the growing cancer rate.

Canadians have been eating genetically modified food since the mid-1990s and the number of GMOs on the market and on Canadian plates have done nothing but increase ever since. Of course Canadians didn’t know they were eating GMOs until long after they were introduced and they certainly didn’t know about the dangers of GM food until long after that.

In fact, many Canadians are still unaware of the dangers because of the massive propaganda campaigns launched at them by their media and the international biotech firms that partly own it.

U.S. Threatens World Seed Security In Its War On Syria

Brandon Turbeville
July 7, 2017

ICARDA (International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas) is one of 15 important international agricultural research centers. It is also the host of a seed bank which contains 150,000 samples in its temperature-controlled seed vaults.

Based in the Syrian town of Tal Hadya, the organization was focused not only on saving seeds and working with the Svalbard Seed Vault in the North Pole, but also focused on improving livelihood in dryer areas such as Syria’s east.

But ICARDA’s work was suddenly interrupted when the United States launched its proxy war against Syria. Tal Hadya was overtaken by western-backed terrorists, also known as Al-Nusra and Ahrar Al-Sham. As is the nature of western-backed terrorist groups, anything remotely resembling civilization and progress was banned, killed or destroyed.

Somehow, America’s deviance overlooked the ICARDA facility, and for awhile the organization was able to continue operations. Foreign employees were removed from the facility early on but some employees were unable to flee and instead preserved the facility, putting their lives at risk because at any moment, America’s freedom fighters might have decided to give them a heavy dose of democracy which usually takes the form of beheadings, rape and torture.

These employees that remained, were of course, Syrians. They negotiated their way to the facility so that they could continue to retrieve data and check operations. The herbarium, a collection of 16,000 pressed and dried, wild, cereal and legume specimens coming from the fertile crescent which traverses Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iran, was rescued, packed away and sent to a safer location at the center of Aleppo.


France Makes Vaccines Mandatory In 2018

france vaccines mandatoryBrandon Turbeville
July 7, 2017

Europe’s banana republic is at it again after being given a scare by Germany and Italy, France is making sure that it takes the lead as the most authoritarian communo-fascist country in Europe.

This is because a new French law will force all parents to vaccinate their children in 2018.

According to Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, all vaccines that are universally recommended by health authorities will be compulsory by law. These vaccines are 11 in total.

With a whole host of “services” that became “officials” and are now “authorities” it is no difficult task for the French government to monitor who is vaccinated and who is not.

Thankfully, for the French government, the country already has a robust police state completely unconcerned with individual rights so enforcing the law will be relatively simple.


While French officials are blaming the anti-vax movement for measles deaths in France, they are noticeably silent on the fact that France is coming a part at the seams. An economy on life support, an immigration crisis and tanking living standards are all contributing to lower quality of life and greater social unrest, two things that contribute to increased spread of disease

Still, despite the fact that France is largely a failed state, it has plenty of money for bombing. With all of this in mind we can only imagine that many Frenchmen are wondering how much better off the country would be if the French government would put this much effort in to preventing terrorist attacks and putting their heads together to prevent a situation that is ripe for such attacks to take place.

U.S. Outmaneuvers Itself In Syria Over Damascus-Baghdad Highway

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 6, 2017

As the Syrian military makes massive gains throughout the country, particularly in the East, it is now painfully obvious that the United States and its Western allies are desperately trying to prevent the Assad government from reaching the Iraqi border and unifying Syria.

One need only look at the strategic positioning of U.S. and allied troops as well as Western-backed terrorists to see that this is the case. For instance, the presence of the United States at al-Tanf was strategically planned to block Syrian military forces from linking up with Iraqi military forces and, thus, Iranian forces via the Damascus-Baghdad highway. This much is evidenced by the fact that the U.S. forces stationed there have repeatedly shot down and attacked anti-ISIS forces moving in their direction under the ridiculous guise of “self-defense.”

In an interview with Sharmine Narwani, a U.S. military Colonel claimed that the U.S. forces are not in al-Tanf to fight Assad but to fight ISIS. If the Syrian military shows itself willing and able to fight ISIS, the Colonel said, the U.S. would have no reason to have troops stationed there. The idea that the Syrian government wants to fight and defeat ISIS is not in question. Neither is its ability to fight, assuming the West would stop arming and directing the terrorist organization and continually acting as its air force. Indeed, the Syrian military is ramping up its campaign against ISIS in the east. Still, the American forces have repeatedly attack the SAA in its attempt to do defeat the terrorist organization, a fact which contradicts Colonel Dillon’s claims.

So what is the real reason the Americans are based at al-Tanf? As mentioned earlier, the goal is to block Syrian military forces from linking up with Iraqi military forces and, thus, Iranian forces via the Damascus-Baghdad highway.


Congress Goes After Kratom, Attempts To Expand Drug War

Brandon Turbeville
July 5, 2017

With the 4th of July holiday having just passed, there’s nothing to remind Americans of their freedom more than the staggering speed at which their government has taken and continues to take it away.

After having come under attack by one of the most useless organizations in the federal government – the DEA – kratom survived only to be attacked by state governments all over the country. But because more and more Americans have realized that decades of propaganda coming from the DEA and other government organs regarding drugs is utter bullshit, many more Americans have tried kratom, which only entrenched their view that the DEA is more concerned in mission creep than anything resembling public health.

This is clearly the case since the DEA recently labeled CBD oil as a Schedule 1 drug. While the DEA may feel proud of itself for being able to reclassify a non-psychoactive substance in the same schedule as heroin, it simply reaffirmed its belligerence to individual rights and its obvious connection to Big Pharma and Big Prison in the eyes of many Americans.

While the DEA was forced to back down last year, the federal government is once again creating a platform for a War on Drugs renewed. This is likely coming as a result of drug war relic Jeff Sessions’ fanatical desire to increase the police state and throw more Americans in cages.

The Children of Syria MSM Doesn't Want You To See

Diane Mantzaris
July 4, 2017

These pictures show 35 children of Syrian martyrs dressed in holiday clothes generously donated by qerdaha newspapers (Lattakia) Syria, and Gigi (Syrian childrens clothing label) in preparation for Eid Al-Fitr festivities, benefiting 95 children over four days.

Take a good look at these children who the US, with the assistance of our government [Australia], have waged a war on with their death squads and llegal air invasion.

No charity goes in the front door to Syria as a result of our countries war against Syria. Our governments have cruel sanctions in place on greater Syria. These sanctions drive up inflation, the price of food, medicine, hospital and medical care, including cancer treatments. The health and wellbeing of ordinary Syrians are affected by sanctions, not governments. It is the people who pay the price.

Even moreso, most US and allied charities do not deliver to greater Syria. They actually support the cruel sanctions while exploiting the image of Syria’s children to profit their cruel US and allied war agenda. Aid for refugees is delivered to allied neighbouring countries who have been facilitating the invasion of some 350,000 US /NATO backed mercenaries and delivering to terrorist groups for the last 7 years. None of it goes to the 75% of refugees and orphans that have fled within Syria to the safety of government-retained and Syrian army defended areas.

Write and ring Australia's MPs! Challenge our Lying media! End this seemingly never ending kowtow to US wars of agression, now also on our own region and our good neighbours! Help end this US allied support for this horrific war on Syria, which cannot be sustained without US allies (us) paying for it. Lift Australia's cruel sanctions! Lift your voices! Get out and stay out! Hands off Syria!

As Americans prepare for the 4th of July holiday which, for many of them, will involve drunken trips to the beach, I thought it would be appropriate to show a few photos from this past weekend in Tartous, Syria. Please note, these women are not wearing Star Wars costumes (aka the Burqa) or being barrel bombed by Assad. This is the Syria the Western corporate media and the NATO governments do not want you to see. It is also the Syria they are trying to destroy.

UFC Veteran Speaks Out Against Vaccines After Tragic Death Of Son

nick catone vaccine death sonBrandon Turbeville
July 1, 2017

“This is unacceptable, I will fight for my son, this happened to the wrong family.” – Nick Catone

Former UFC fighter, Nick Catone, is making waves on social media. But while many fighters are drawing attention to themselves for attacking their opponents, Catone is gathering attention for another reason: his vocal criticism of vaccination.

For him, the issue is very personal since on May 12, his otherwise healthy 20-month-old son passed away in the middle of the night. While the family was initially perplexed as to how a healthy little boy could just simply die without warning, consultations with numerous doctors and even an autopsy yielded no results. Instead, the cause of Nicholas’ death was listed as “natural.”

Shortly after, however, Catone began hearing stories from other parents regarding their child’s adverse reactions to vaccines, ranging from seizures to autism and death. Catone began doing his own research and is now convinced that it was the vaccine that killed his son.

Catone wrote on June 27th:

On April 25th my son got his dtap shot, I remember he had a rash for a day or so after, had a little cold and runny nose on and off, Sunday May 7th had a fever wasn’t himself most the day. Monday May 8th woke up fine with no fever back to himself for the next 4 days happy, playing, eating running around with his sister then Friday May 12th my son just doesn’t wake up. Doesn’t make sense. I started researching and the more people I spoke to hearing about stories of kids having seizures after shots and diagnosed with austism after shots and kids unexpectedly passing away is horrifying. The preservatives and crap they pump into our kids today is bullshit. I didn’t realize all this until I starting reading up on it. If you never researched about vaccines I suggest you do. I wish I knew what I do today and my son would never have gotten any. All about money in this fucked up world we live in. We’re going to keep fighting and do everything we can to get answers. Manner of Death – “Natural” does not do it for me.

Catone’s story hit a nerve with many parents and a day later he wrote this:

MSM Distorts OPCW Report; OPCW Claims Sarin Used Without Visiting Site of Incident

June 30, 2017

CNN and other corporate media outlets are once again alight with “proof” that Assad used chemical weapons against civilians in Khan Sheikhoun. So what, exactly, is their proof? Well, they don’t have any. That shouldn’t be surprising in and of itself but it is at least entertaining the lengths to which corporate media outlets and Western governments will go in order to blame their own crimes against humanity on the Syrian government in order to justify new Western crimes against humanity.

Neverthless, the western corporate media is eagerly reporting the OPCW has “found” that sarin was indeed used as Khan Sheikoun, then spending the rest of their “reports” pointing the finger at the government of Bashar al-Assad.

In this regard, two points must be made.

First, the OPCW has made a declaration without the requisite evidence. The organization has yet to actually visit the site, despite repeated calls by Russia and Syria to do so. It can’t access the area because it is occupied by the West’s freedom-fighters and thus, simply entering the general area would put inspectors at risk of having their heads lopped off. Instead, the OPCW has been taking samples from terrorist supporting “NGOs” and taking testimony from terrorists and their families. With investigation standards like this, it’s no surprise what conclusion the team would come to.

Second, it must be noted that, contrary to the claims made by Western governments, the OPCW has not determined who was responsible for the attack. The OPCW is not tasked with determining who is responsible for committing such acts.

U.S. Invents Chem Weapons Threat And Claims It Defeats Threat By Warning Syria, Iran And Russia

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
June 28, 2017

In a bizarre moment of geopolitical theatre, the United States announced that Syria was planning “another” chemical weapons attack and the Syrian military would “pay a heavy price for doing so.” Apparently, U.S. military intelligence graduated from using facts to outright prophecy. Or, rather, should we say it graduated from facts and lies to outright absurdity?

The warning, which was announced by the White House amidst a rash of confusion in the wings of the Executive branch, was attributed to intelligence received pointing toward “active preparation” at a Syrian airfield for the use of chemical weapons.

As Reuters reported,

Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said the United States had recently seen activity at Shayrat airfield, the same base targeted by a U.S. cruise missile strike on April 6.
"This involved specific aircraft in a specific hangar, both of which we know to be associated with chemical weapons use," Davis said. 
Davis said the activity occurred during "the past day or two." He did not say how the United States collected its intelligence. 
The White House said on Monday it appeared the Syrian government was preparing for another chemical weapons attack and warned Assad that he and his military would "pay a heavy price" if it went ahead.

Par Brandon Turbeville, le 25 juin 2017

Pendant que les beaux parleurs du Congrès US s’adonnent à des discours auto-promoteurs régurgitant le mensonge de la « menace russe » et poussent à de plus sévères sanctions et actions contre la seule autre superpuissance planétaire, le journaliste chevronné Seymour Hersh a une fois de plus lâché une bombe médiatique qui pulvérise la version officielle de l’attaque aux armes chimiques de Khan Cheikhoun. L’article est un « protocole de conversation » entre un soldat US et un analyste US de la sécurité. Le soldat est en service actif, en poste sur une base aérienne stratégique de la région, bien que le lieu exact de son déploiement soit tenu secret pour des raisons évidentes.

L’échange révèle non seulement que le gouvernement syrien n’a pas lancé d’attaque chimique à Khan Cheikhoun, mais que les États-Unis savaient qu’il n’y avait pas eu d’attaque chimique. De plus, l’échange démontre que tout le personnel concerné n’adhère pas au choix de lancer des missiles Tomahawk sur al-Sha’aryat, ou même à l’ensemble de la mission en Syrie et en Irak. Il révèle de réelles inquiétudes parmi du personnel bien renseigné, selon quoi les Russes ne continueront pas éternellement à jouer les têtes froides, et que la Russie a depuis longtemps désiré la paix dans la région. Plus notablement, l’échange révèle qu’il existe un « agenda secret » en cours de déploiement concernant la Syrie, l’Irak et la Russie.

Une analyse plus détaillée suivra. Pour l’instant toutefois, il importe de lire l’échange tel qu’originellement publié par Welt am Sonntag et Seymour Hersh. Le voici ci-dessous:

"We Got A Fuckin' Problem:" Chat Between Security Analyst/Soldier Reveals Chem Attack Lies, Secret Agenda By US Gov't

Activist Post 
June 25, 2017

As congressional grandstanders make self-serving speeches repeating the “Russian threat” lie and push for greater sanctions and actions against the world’s only other superpower, veteran journalist Seymour Hersh has once again released a bombshell article blowing the official story of the chemical weapons attack at Khan Sheikhoun out of the water. The article is a “chat protocol” between an American military soldier and an American Security analyst. The soldier is on active duty at a key airbase in the region although the location of his deployment is being kept secret for obvious reasons.

The chat reveals that not only did the Syrian government not launch a chemical attack at Khan Sheikhoun but that the United States knew there was no chemical attack. In addition, the chat shows that not all key personnel are on board with the decision to launch Tomahawk missiles at al-Sha’aryat or even of the whole Syria/Iraq mission. The chat reveals real concerns amongst knowledgeable personnel that the Russians will not continue to act as the cooler heads and that Russia has long wanted peace in the region. Most notably, it reveals the fact that there is a “secret agenda” moving forward in regards to Syria, Iraq, and Russia.

More detailed analysis will follow. For now, however, it is important to read the chat as it was published by Welt Am Sonntag and Seymour Hersh originally. The chat is provided below:

New Study Shows How Ketamine Works Against Depression, Stupidity Of Drug War

ketamine for depressionBrandon Turbeville
June 23, 2017

Apparently there is a new trend in science: proving what hippies, ravers and EDM fans have been telling people for years.

One approach has simply been to shout down the drug-addled kids and ignore everything they have to say as they are shoved in to a cage with actual criminals. Another approach is simply to test what they are saying and see if it’s true.

Thankfully, UT Southwestern Medical Center scientists have been taking a closer look at ketamine and just why the drug works as an antidepressant.

The very idea that scientists would investigate these properties in the first place is controversial. Drug war takfiris only know that it has been used recreationally for psychedelic properties – something the government, for reasons I will let the readers to speculate on, seems absolutely terrified of.

Brain-altering chemicals, according the government should never be a choice left up to an individual. They should be handed out by authoritarians in lab coats even if it is against the patient’s will. At least the government is consistent – individual choice doesn’t play a role.

Obviously it is an issue of which brains should be altered and which brains shouldn’t that is in question, but I digress.

This new study from Peter O’Donnell Junior Brain Institute is looking at what proteins in the brain that ketamine targets to produce its effects.


Magic Mushrooms Cure Depression, Only Scientists Are Surprised

After decades of a drug war, authoritarianism and hundreds of billions of dollars, scientists are finally starting to discover what 20-year-old hippie kids bouncing from festival to festival could have told them all along: magic mushrooms help with depression.

A study that was published in the Lancet details an experiment that involved 12 human volunteers who had been struggling with depression for over 17 years on average. None of the participants had found relief with standard treatments such as SSRIs even if they had undergone multiple rounds. Psilocybin mushrooms, however, were able to lift that severe depression in every single one of the volunteers.

“This is the first time that psilocybin has been investigated as a potential treatment for major depression,” says lead study author Dr Robin Carhart-Harris of the Imperial College London, where the study took place. “Treatment-resistant depression is common, disabling and extremely difficult to treat. New treatments are urgently needed, and our study shows that psilocybin is a promising area of future research.”

What is even more noteworthy is that the depression lifted considerably after just one treatment and it did so for every single person in the study.

For a majority of the participants, the mushrooms’ antidepressant effects were still in effect three months after the dose. Five of the participants were in complete remission from depression three months after the study despite the fact that they were not following any other treatment plan.

Stay Strong Firefighters, Al-Qaeda Supports You

As the Grenfell tower fire began to die down, propaganda began ramping up in England. Channel 4, long known to support terrorist organizations and the war in Syria, aired a shockingly insulting video directed at London firefighters that scarcely anyone in the firefighting community or general public even noticed. The Channel 4 program aired what was supposed to be another round of tribute for London firefighters and their bravery at Grenfell, but what it actually showed was terrorist support group White Helmets “expressing solidarity” for the London firefighters and holding up banners expressing the same sentiment.

“Long distance prevent us from coming to help but we felt London’s pain through last night’s events. Our hearts are with you. #WhiteHelmets #Idlib,” the banners read, with pictures of terrorists holding these banners flashing throughout the video.

“We were saddened to hear about the loss of souls in the Grenfell tower fire, including al-Mohammad al-Haj Ali, a Syrian from our home of Daraa, who had fled to London seeking safety from death and destruction. We appreciate your efforts to search for bodies for days in a row and we feel your pain because this horror is our daily reality,” the video continued.

The video then cuts to the White Helmets’ propaganda narrative and competition in the tragedy olympics (always a tasteful act in the wake of a tragedy) with a typical “my tragedy is bigger than yours” statement. The narration is as follows:

In Daraa, we’re under the heaviest attacks we’ve ever seen in this deadly war. Hundreds of airstrikes have destroyed entire neighborhoods and fires are everywhere. Just like you, our teams are rushing toward the blazes and we do all we can to rescue the injured. The past 16 days have seen 88 people killed and nearly 35,000 civilians displaced from their homes. A civil defense centre was targeted and destroyed, and five volunteers were injured in the bombing. As you know, it’s a terrible thing to see your teammates suffer. You have been so generous to us, donating equipment to our teams when you met with our teammates in London. We’ve received training from British experts in search and rescue and firefighting. Who knows, we might have been trained by the same people And who knows we may also be saving the lives of Mohammad al-Haj Ali here in Daraa. We feel we have so much in common. We all risk our own lives to save as many people as possible as fast as possible. Our hearts are with you and we wish we could help you in your search for victims. We send you strength for your mission and we hope to meet you one day.


India and Russia's Cooperation May Make India A Target Of The West's Terror Apparatus

With India moving firmly into the Russian orbit, the regional heavyweight is likely opening itself up to vengeful sabotage on the part of the Western establishment. Although clearly an impoverished police state not interested in civil liberties or individual freedom, India is nonetheless realizing that Perfide Albion (a moniker once reserved for England but now able to be placed on virtually the entire Western NATO world) cannot be trusted and is thus apt to go more for the Russian carrot instead of the American stick.

Evidence for this is the fact that Russia and India have now implemented over 400 joint scientific and development projects since the beginning of their cooperation initiative. This includes the recent announced possibility that Russia may offer India assistance in building the world’s most advanced nuclear reactor in the world.

In addition, it appears that Russia will also be assisting India with defense initiatives. On June 21, it was announced by Russian arms exporter, Rosoboronexport, that it will soon sign a contract with India for the delivery of the much-vaunted S-400 Triumf missile systems. As TASS reports, “The S-400 Triumf is the most advanced long-range antiaircraft missile system that went into service in Russia in 2007. It is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range missiles, and can also be used against ground objectives.”

This new cooperation between India and Russia is significant in many ways but one noticeable aspect is the potential for a wave of destabilization and terror attacks that may follow the same footsteps in India as it has in other countries; i.e. Syria, Philippines, Iran, etc. that begin moving away from the American orbit. In other words, as India moves closer to Russia look for Western-backed terror organizations to begin assaults in India in order to destabilize the government there and shake up the Russian influence.

"New Chemical Attack In Syria Crosses 'Red Line' OR U.S. Crosses Its Own 'Red Line' In Syria

Throughout 2017, the United States has continued its race to become the most hypocritical nation on the face of the earth by continuing not only to violate basic principles of respect for human life and international law but also its own “red lines.” Despite Obama’s grandstanding over “red lines” and chemical weapons and Trump’s bloviating and subsequent war crimes surrounding “chemical weapons” and “beautiful babies,” the United States has committed what amounts to its own chemical attack on the Syrian and Iraqi people.

Although not specifically considered a “chemical weapon” in the traditional sense, White Phosphorous is, in effect, a chemical agent. It is used largely for its smoke screening purposes but there is also a psychological element since contact with white phosphorous results in excruciatingly painful deep first, second, and third degree burns.

The use of white phosphorous over heavily populated civilian areas is prohibited under international law. In fact, white phosphorous is only allowed if the agent is being used for the purposes of masking or camouflage. If being used as a weapon, it is banned as a chemical weapon under the Chemical Weapons Convention. International law, however, has never gotten in the way of America’s goals and, for that reason, the U.S. has used the chemical repeatedly in both Iraq and Syria for some time.

But while little evidence has been produced demonstrating any harm came to civilians by the use of the chemical by the U.S., it is important to point out that the city of Mosul, Iraq is indeed a densely populated area and also one in which the U.S. has used white phosphorous. Indeed, Western media reports have also stated that Raqqa, despite being controlled by ISIS, is heavily populated with civilians who were not allowed to leave by Western-backed terrorists.
