Mich nervt ja die Geringschtzung der Medien fr ihre eigenen Inhalte.

Der Wert kommt nur noch aus dem "ERSTER!!!1!"

Das war frher ein Running Gag in Webforen, dass immer jemand der Erste sein wollte, der kommentiert. Und so betrachten sich heute auch die Medien.

Schon die Nachrichten von heute morgen sind hufig nicht mehr angezeigt. Wenn man wissen will, was diese Woche so passiert ist? Nicht vorgesehen. Die Tagesschau hat einen Ticker. Aber was ist mit letzter Woche?

Was waren die Meldungen vom Oktober diesen Jahres?

Ist das nicht wichtig? Ist das nicht unsere Geschichte? Ist das nicht wichtig fr die Einordnung von Dingen?

Unsere Nachrichten sind eine Wegwerfgesellschaft.

Wusstet ihr, dass jngere Brder 33% wahrscheinlicher schwul sind als ltere?

Stellt sich raus: Eine Immunreaktion der schwangeren Mutter lst das aus.

Die Wissenschaftler hatten das Blut von 54 Frauen untersucht, deren Shne homosexuell waren, und es mit dem Blut von 72 Mttern verglichen, die heterosexuelle Shne hatten. Erstere hatten deutlich grere Mengen eines bestimmten Antikrpers im Blut, fanden sie heraus.
Und nicht nur das: Je mehr Shne eine Frau bekommen hat, desto mehr dieser Antikrper zirkulieren im Blut.

Dieser Effekt kann aber zusammengenommen nur von 15% der schwulen Mnner erklren. Das ist also nur ein kleiner Puzzlestein.

Krasses Urteil: LG Berlin: Demosanitter wegen Versto gegen Vermummungs- (Atemmaske) und das Schutzwaffenverbot (Helm) verurteilt.

Demo-Sanitter sind Ersthelfer, Sanitter oder rzte. Gruppen wie die Riot Medics Berlin und die Leftwing Demonstration Medics agieren meist zu sechst. Sie halten sich mitten in oder am Rande einer Demonstration auf und helfen beispielsweise, wenn Teilnehmer der Protestveranstaltungen Pfefferspray abbekommen haben. Wir verstehen uns nicht als Teil der Demonstration, sagte der Angeklagte am Mittwoch vor Gericht. Wir wollen nicht unsere Meinung kundtun, sondern einzig verletzte Menschen versorgen.
Das sah die Richterin anders. Wer als Demo-Sanitter zu einer Versammlung geht, fand sie, der wolle sich politisch engagieren und sei daher auch Teilnehmer. Und wenn Sanitter mitlaufen, frdere das die Gewaltbereitschaft der Demonstranten.

Und dann kam noch ein Widerstand gegen einen Vollstreckungsbeamten dazu, und eine versuchte Gefangenenbefreiung.

Polizisten hatten ausgesagt, in einer unbersichtlichen Situation whrend einer Sitzblockade habe der Angeklagte einen Polizisten gestoen und an der Schulter gezogen, der gerade dabei war einen Demonstranten festzunehmen.

Die Antikorruptions-Aktion in Saudi Arabien sieht bei nherer Betrachtung wie ein Shakedown aus. Die Regierung locht irgendeinen Prinzen ein, und lsst ihn gegen ein "Settlement" raus. Und wir reden hier nicht von ein paar 10k Dollar, nein!

Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, one of the most senior Saudi royals detained in the kingdoms corruption crackdown, has been released after reaching a settlement deal believed to exceed the equivalent of $1 billion, an official involved in the anti-graft campaign said.
Mal eben eine Milliarde Strafe, das lppert sich. Insgesamt wollen die Saudis damit wohl so um die 100 Milliarden zusammenerpressen. Das ist grenordnungsmig einmal deren Staatsverschuldung.

Da muss man sich doch fragen, wenn Korruption sich so doll lohnt, wieso Deutschland nicht auch solche Strafen aufruft. Da knnte man direkt aufhren, die Normalbevlkerung zu besteuern!

The 5 unsung Labour heroes of the Amendment 7 vote AAV


Much credit has been given to the 11 Tory MPs who joined forces with the opposition parties to defeat Theresa May's authoritarian scheming by bravely voting in favour of Amendment 7 to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, but there are five unsung heroes on the Labour benches too.

Of course the Tory "Mutineers" led by former Attorney General Dominic Grieve deserve credit for having put country above party for once. 

They'll obviously always be tainted by their numerous votes in favour of imposing ruinous Tory austerity dogma that has done so much damage to the British economy, public services, workers' wages, and productivity, as well as severely retarding the nation's future economic potential through the lowest levels of infrastructure investment in the developed world. However they definitely deserve credit for doing something right for a change, and standing up for the principle of parliamentary sovereignty, especially given the torrent of abuse they knew they'd suffer at the hands of the Daily Mail and the extreme-right for daring to do the right thing.

The five unsung heroes on the Labour benches are Dennis Skinner, Graeme Morris, Ronnie Campbell, John Mann and Roger Godsiff.

As you may already know, these are all pro-Brexit Labour MPs, but they all made the important distinction between backing Theresa May's objective of turning Brexit into an anti-democratic power grab, and conducting Brexit in a democratic manner.

Their ability to make this distinction between an authoritarian Tory Brexit and a Brexit conducted in a democratic manner led them to vote alongside the majority of their Labour c...

Calling for an immediate end to investments in new fossil fuel production and infrastructure Yanis Varoufakis

DECLARATION

We the undersigned, call for an immediate end to investments in new fossil fuel production and infrastructure, and encourage a dramatic increase in investments in renewable energy.

We are issuing this call to action in the lead up to the climate summit hosted by President Macron in Paris this December. President Macron and other world leaders, have already spoken out about the need for an increase in finance for climate solutions, but they have remained largely silent about the other, dirtier side of the equation: the ongoing finance of new coal, oil and gas production and infrastructure.

Ongoing global climate change and environmental destructions are happening at an unprecedented scale, and it will take unprecedented actions to limit the worst consequences of our dependence on oil, coal, and gas.

Equally as critical as drastically curbing the carbon intensity of our economic systems is the need for immediate and ambitious actions to stop exploration and expansion of fossil fuel projects and manage the decline of existing production in line with what is necessary to achieve the Paris climate goals.

Research shows that the carbon embedded in existing fossil fuel production will take us far beyond safe climate limits. Thus, not only are new exploration and new production incompatible with limiting global warming to well below 2C (and as close to 1.5C as possible), but many existing projects will need to be phased-out faster than their natural decline. Simply put: there is no more room for new fossil fuel infrastructure and therefore no case for ongoing investment.

It is time for the community of global economic actors to fully embrace, safe, and renewable energies and phase out fossil fuels. This letter affirms that it is the urgent responsibility and moral obligation of public and private investors and development institutions to lead in putting an end to fossil fuel development.

A global transition to a low carbon future is already well underway and we recognize that a full transition away from fossil fuels is an opportunity for a new economic paradigm of prosperity and equity. Continued expansion of oil, coal, and gas is only serving to hinder the inevitable transition while at the same time exacerbating conflicts, fuelling corruption, threatening biodiversity, clean water and air, and infringing on the rights of Indigenous Peoples and vulnerable countries and communities.

Energy access and demand can and must now be met fully through the renewable energies of the 21st century. Assertions that new fossil fuels, such the current push for gas, are needed for this transformation are not only inaccurate; they also undermine the speed and penetration of renewable energy.

The global investment community has the power to create the conditions under which this shift...

A Tale of Two Trials: Bundy Ranch and Pentagon Papers Philosophers Stone

Let us take a contemporaneous yet parallel walk through both trials.

 

A Tale of Two Trials: Bundy Ranch and Pentagon Papers

A Tale of Two Trials: Bundy Ranch and Pentagon Papers

by Elias Alias

(TMM) In following the Bundy trial in Las Vegas, I have revisited a story I first read in 2002. That story is about a trial which happened in 1973. That trial gained world-wide press coverage and shocked the powerful elite in the Nixon Administration. That trial seems to me today to be the perfect precedent to bring to the attention of Judge Navarro, who is presiding over the Bundy trial(s).

I noticed this past week, early in December 2017, that the defendants were finally allowed pre-trial release so they could be with their families during the remainder of the trial.  The defendants were granted pre-trial release only after it was revealed in court in early December 2017, that the FBI report on the defendants from well over a year ago had indicated that the defendants were not dangerous and were not a threat. That report had not been provided to Judge Navarro until just now.

The defendants had been held in prison for almost two years without bail, deprived of a speedy trial, and in some cases tormented while incarcerated. The prosecution had assured the court that these defendants were a threat to society and should not be allowed bail.  But that became exposed as false once the initial FBI report was discovered. In and of itself, that circumstance poses the question why would the prosecution knowingly deceive the courts? To answer that question I must ask the reader to indulge me as I lay in a bit more background.

It is my estimation that the prosecution is hell-bent on persecuting, as well as prosecuting, the defendants because the prosecution works for the government, and because the government is still reeling from its resounding defeat at Bundy Ranch in southern Nevada on April 12, 2014.  The prosecutions bias is obvious and abundant. Ill show below why I say that here.

The prosecution is under tremendous pressure to win convictions and long-term prison sentences for our cowboys because if the cowboys get away with standing up to authority, the U.S. government itself will be embarrassed by its tardiness in making available to global banking elite agendas the assets inherent in public l...

Where is the mainstream media condemnation of the extremist blue-kip takeover of the Tory party? AAV


Remember when Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader and the mainstream media had an absolute fit over it? Remember when the hundreds of thousands of new Labour Party members he attracted were continually smeared by the press as "infiltrators" and "entryists"? 

Then there was the way that any talk of democratising the Labour Party from within was described as if democratic re-selection of MPs was some kind of terrifying ideological "purge", rather than a means of actually holding them to account for their actions.

And the way that everyone involved from Corbyn all the way down to the hundreds of thousands of Labour members and supporters who voted for him were repeatedly smeared as "extremists".

Despite all of this rhetoric Corbyn's election and re-election as Labour leader were actually fantastic demonstrations of grass roots democracy in action. 

An out-of-touch clique of right-wing Labour MPs plotted to get rid of him in the summer of 2016, but ordinary Labour voters unified behind Corby...

USA - LETTER: Fluoridating water is contradictory to MAWA's mission statement UK Against Fluoridation

Meadville Area Water Authority's (MAWA) Mission Statement reads: To provide high quality, safe, dependable water service with sound water management practices at rates that encourage economic development, emphasize customer service, and protect our environment.
Dr. Anthony Cipolla, a dentist from Williamsport, a veteran and former commissioned officer in the United States Public Health Service, writes the following: Adding hydrofluorosilicic acid to Meadville's water supply violates their mission statement. The highest quality water is just H20. The addition of chlorine is needed for safety part of their mission statement.
The people of Meadville should be outraged at the prospect of receiving lower quality water. Fluorine is a very reactive halogen and competes with essential iodine for proper thyroid health. Fluoride is an enzyme disruptor, and should never be taken systemically. Its primary action orally is topical much of its anti-cavity effect comes from its anti-bacterial action due to its enzyme disruption capabilities. If Fluoride is added, then I would recommend that the water only be used as a mouthwash.
If MAWA wants to prevent tooth decay (and at the same time many metabolic diseases, such as Type ll diabetes), they should petition for proper nutrition in schools. The average American consumes 40 teaspoons of sugar a day. The root fix is addressing the root cause, i.e., sugar consumption.

examples of damage to teeth, including staining and mottling ranging from mild to severe, from dental fluorosis caused by fluoride..................The potential health risks generated from exposure to these sources of fluoride are often overlooked. Additionally, age, gender, genetic factors, nutritional status, weight, and other factors are known to influence each persons unique reaction to fluoride. For example, childrens exposure to fluoride is extremely important to consider, and this issue was made evident in recent news about a study linking fluoride exposure in utero with lower IQs. As another example, fluoride was recently identified as one of 12 industrial chemicals known to cause developmental neurotoxicity in humans.

USA - Activists want ban on fluoride in drinking water UK Against Fluoridation

BOSTON Activists are pressuring the state to ban the practice of adding fluoride compounds to public drinking water, saying it amounts to mass-medicating without public consent. A proposal that went before a legislative panel on Monday would outlaw the practice. Filed by Sen. Barbara L'Italien, D-Andover, on behalf of a constituent, it would end a decades-old public health campaign aimed at preventing tooth decay.
"Medical mandates like this are politics pretending to be science," said Karen Spencer, a Gloucester activist who is involved with anti-fluoridation campaigns. "No government has the right to put something into our water supplies that harms people's health. It's immoral."
Spencer, one of several people who supported the ban during the hearing on Monday, said studies are increasingly linking negative health impacts such as gastrointestinal ailments, thyroid disorders, kidney diseases and even autism to fluoride added to the water.
But Dr. John Fisher, a Salem dentist and a trustee of the Massachusetts Dental Society, said the health benefits are indisputable. "Drinking fluoridated water keeps teeth strong and reduces cavities by about 25 percent in children and adults," he told the Joint Committee on Public Health. "Community water fluoridation has not only proven to reduce dental decay but also lowered dental costs, leading to outcomes that have important impact on overall health."
Fisher, chairman of the Better Oral Health for Massachusetts Coalition, said research has shown that fluoridated water protects teeth without posing health risks. The American Dental Association, American Medical Association and National Cancer Institute endorse the practice. Fisher said the internet is awash with misinformation about water fluoridation. "There's a lot of distortions out there," he said. "I think these are generally good people who believe what they say, but if they actually read the studies they might be more inclined to accept the evidence in support of community water fluoridation as safe, efficient and effective."
Who has fluoride in water.
At least 140 public water systems in the state serving more than 4 million people add fluoride compounds, according to the Department of Public Health. Most have done so since the 1950s.  The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority which serves more than 2.5 million people across 61 communities including Marblehead, Peabody, Swampscott and Lynn has fluoridated the water for more than 30 years.
  
Water in Essex has been fluoridated since 1970, Gloucester since 1981 and Manchester since 1983. Half the fluoride in Rockport's water occurs naturally, according to the state Department of Health; the other half has been added since 1984.
Concerns about the health effects have kept several...

Supplementary pieces Is the BBC biased?

Its hectic chez Sue at the moment, but Id like to quickly link to pieces that relate to a couple of our earlier posts. 

Time (lack of sufficient) sometimes forces me to combine several issues in one piece and I often have to condense material that Id have liked to expand upon much more fully. Not to worry; someone far more eloquent has done it so I don't have to.  Heres Douglas Murrays article for Gatestone Institute about President Trump and Jerusalem. He compares Emily Maitliss appalling Newsnight interviews, first with Ghada Karmi and next with Mark Regev. 
The reaction around the world in recent days has been a reminder of the one central truth of the whole conflict. Those who cannot accept that Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel tend to be exactly the same as those who cannot accept the State of Israel. Consider the expert whom the BBC's flagship current affairs programme Newsnight chose to bring on to receive soft-ball questions on this issue. Dr. Ghada Karmi, from the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter, a notorious opponent of Israel, was inevitably given the sort of respectful interview style that Newsnight presenters generally reserve for when they are interviewing Madonna or some other mega-star they cannot believe their luck at having gotten to speak with. 
Here is what Ghada Karmi had to say -- with no meaningful challenge from the programme's presenter, Emily Maitlis. 
Ghada Karmi: We know that Donald Trump is not a free agent. He is surrounded by pro-Israel advisors, pro-Israel officials. 
Emily Maitlis (BBC): To be fair the American stance towards Israel has not differed particularly from one President to another. 
Karmi: No, because it's always been dictated by Israeli interests. 
Maitlis (BBC): So what are you saying that he cannot broker peace or America cannot broker peace in the region. 
Karmi: No of course not. He can't. He's compromised. He is surrounded by pro-Israel propagandists, people who want Israel's interests above any other and he cannot operate as a free agent even if he had the wit to do it.... Why it is so dangerous is because you kno...

The Sugar Conspiracy Rigged Game

By James Corbett and cross-posted from Steemit!

An explosive new study in the PLOS Biology journal confirms three things that independent health researchers have been saying for years:

  1. Sugar-heavy diets are worse for your health than fat-heavy diets.
  2. Researchers have known this fact for decades.
  3. The sugar industry actively covered up the research supporting this fact.

The studybearing the typically unwieldy title Sugar industry sponsorship of germ-free rodent studies linking sucrose to hyperlipidemia and cancer: An historical analysis of internal documentsreads like an unlikely pairing of crime thriller and academic article.

At the heart of this medical thriller lies the mysteriously named Project 259, a research study which ran from 1967 to 1971 to examine the link between sucrose consumption and coronary heart disease. From the outside, the project, headed by Dr. W.F.R. Pover at the University of Birmingham, appeared to be just another clinical study in nutritional science. It involved a feeding experiment in which lab rats were separated into two groups, one eating a high-sugar diet and the other eating a so-called basic PRM diet of cereal meals, soybean meals, whitefish meal, and dried yeast.

But this was not the passion project of an impartial scientist trying to get to the truth. This was a study sponsored by the Sugar Research Foundation (SRF), which (in case you couldnt tell) has organizational ties to the Sugar Association, the trade association of the US sugar industry.

The results of the SRFs experiment, according to an interim assessment issued in 1969, were extremely interesting:

Among [Project 259s] observations was that the urine from rats on the basic diet contained an inhibitor of beta-glucorinidase activity in a quantity greater than that from sucrose-fed animals. This is one of the first demonstrations of a biological difference between sucrose and starch fed rats.

Having been a point of scientific inquiry and debate for decades, the first experimental evidence that sugar and starch are actually metabolized differently was significant enough. But, as the PLOS Biology article explains, the way in which this difference manifested was even more significant:

This incidental finding of Project 259 demonstrated to SRF that sucrose versus starch consumption caused different metabolic effects and suggested that sucrose, by stimulating urinary beta-glucuronidase, may have a role in the pathogenesis of bladder cancer.

So, surely these results were published to much fanf...

The glaring problem for Theresa May and her Tory colleagues is that they have repeatedly voted in favour of imposing ruinous austerity dogma on the British economy. Not only does Tory austerity dogma (or deliberate under-investment as it could also be described) provably cause vast amounts of social and economic damage in general, but 86% of the burden of it has been loaded onto the shoulders of women from poor and ordinary women.

The reality is that Theresa May and her Tory mates are the misogynists who believe in economically punishing millions of women from poor and ordinary backgrounds for the reckless gambling of the wealthy (and mainly male) bankers who trashed the global economy and caused the soaring UK budget deficit in the first place.

On the other hand Labour and Jeremy Corbyn want to scrap the Tories' ruinous and discriminatory austerity agenda, and implement numerous policies that would benefit women across the UK too. For example the Labour policy of a 10 minimum wage would benefit millions of women, because the vast majority of workers earning poverty pay are female.

So while Theresa May and her elitist Tory chums fo...

The Tories and DUP are plotting to use Brexit as an excuse to tamper with democracy in Scotland and Wales. AAV


Remember when the Brexit campaigners told us all that voting Leave would give the Tory party (and their uber-nationalist DUP mates) the pability to amend the powers of the Scottish parliament and the Welsh Assembly with no democratic oversight of their actions whatever?

No. Me neither.

Well on the evening of December 12th 2017 the Tories and their DUP backers/puppet-masters joined forces to defeat Amendment 158 to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill by 315 votes to 291.

Amendment 158 sought to prevent the Westminster government from misusing the powers they were awarding themselves to amend EU derived laws in order to undermine the powers of the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly.

This safeguard is vitally important because there are plenty in the Tory and DUP ranks who would dearly love to restrict the power of the devolved parliaments, if not scrap them altogether. 

All 13 of the Tory MPs representing Scottish seats voted with the government to let them keep the power to alter or revoke devolved powers from their own national parliament without any parliamentary scrutiny of what they are actually up to!

Caedmon Principal in Sideways Shuffle North Yorks Enquirer

Caedmon Principal in Sideways Shuffle

It has quietly been announced that retiring Principal of Caedmon College Whitby, Mr Keith PRYTHERCH whose retirement, following a disappointing OfSTED Report, was reported here on the Enquirer on 21st October 2017 is to take over as temporary Executive Leader (for two terms) of Northallerton School and Sixth Form College (incorporating the former Allertonshire School) follow the links for the most recent OfSTED Reports: REQUIRES IMPROVEMENT and GOOD, respectively), where Principal Mr Chris BYRNE and Chair of Governors Mr Robert BARKER have both opted for retirement following what has been described as a turbulent time.

Mr PRYTHERCH will be assisted by Mr John KELLY, recently retired Headteacher of Risedale Sports and Community College.

Quite why Mr PRYTHERCH who is widely considered to have inflicted irreparable damage on schooling in Whitby should have been selected to fill in at Northallerton is presently unclear. However, sources in the education sector are suggesting a strong hand is needed to keep a lid on yet another reputational management conundrum at Northallerton. One former governor described the PRYTHERCH appointment as being like sending a petrol bowser to douse a forest fire.

The Enquirer will, of course, continue to enquire . . .

Stressful Year Ahead for Spanish Banks Rigged Game

The spillover effects.

Just how much more stress Europes banking system can bear will be one of the big questions of 2018. This year was already a pretty stressful year, what with two major Italian banks being put out of their misery while, another, Monte dei Paschi di Siena, was brought back from the dead. In Spain, 300,000 shareholders and subordinate bondholders mourned the passing of the countrys sixth biggest bank, Banco Popular, which was acquired by Santander for the measly price of one euro.

Now, a whole new problem awaits. A report published by Spains second largest lender, BBVA, has warned about the potential impact on the sectors profitability of new rules on provisions due to come into effect in early 2018.

Until now, banks only had to report losses when loans began deteriorating i.e. when the defaults began. But the introduction in January of a new accounting rule, known as IFRS 9, will force banks in Europe to provision for souring loans much sooner than at present. One direct result will be that banks will have to hold more capital on their books, and that will have a detrimental impact on their profits.

If next years stress test by the ECB sets the same macroeconomic conditions and parameters as those used in 2014, banks holding just over one-fifth of the market share in Spain measured in risk-weighted assets would have to undertake provisions exceeding 200 basis points, the BBVA report predicts. That would leave some entities with a solvency rating lower than 9% i.e., on the brink or even below the minimal level required by European regulation

Ounce Of Prevention | HARD Facts About SOFT Drinks UK Against Fluoridation

Soft drinks consumption dramatically escalates during the festive season. Drinking soft drinks may seem so pleasant and so innocent because this cold, artificially flavoured, sweet liquid with its acidic tang, combined with the tickle of gas bubbles, is carefully designed to seduce and addict the consumer.
According to market surveys, soft drink sales continue to escalate each year, fuelled by aggressive multimillion-dollar advertisement campaigns directed mainly at children and teenagers. In the United States, for example, young males aged 12-29 are the biggest soda consumers, drinking over 160 gallons per year - almost two quarts per day, and the girls are rapidly catching up.
Hundreds of published studies on soft drinks indicate that they are not healthy. If you regularly drink sodas, this holiday season may be the time to put the bottle or can down and take a serious look at what you are consuming.
Parents, this may be the time for you to talk with your kids and change their choice of drinks.

USA - Athens - Whatley to leave council UK Against Fluoridation


WhatleyCiting personal reasons, Athens City Council member Joe Whatley resigned on Monday following  a five-and-a-half hour meeting.
 
Whatley was first elected to the Place 3 seat in 2014. He previously served on the Athens Municipal Water Authority board.
 
Whatley is the second council member to resign since October, when Place 1 council  member Tres Winn left because he was moving out of the city limits. Robert Gross was chosen in November to serve the remainder of Winn's term.
 
At the meeting, council members discussed whether the city would continue to add fluoride to the water system. Mayor Monte Montgomery said the practice of adding fluoride to the city's water was started by AMWA in 1984.
"This came up when AMWA and the city of Athens renegotiated the contract (in 2014)," Montgomery said. "Councilman Whatley and I were involved with that."
When the city ordered a water-rate study, council members learned it was not mandatory or necessary to add fluoride to the water supply.
"Councilman Whatley and I thought, if it's not mandatory, we need to look at it," Montgomery said.
Managing Director of Public Services Ryan Adams said fluoride is a broad spectrum solution to poor dental health.
"Proponents of fluoride, they are mostly at the higher level of medical and federal regulatory entities," he said.
 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association are two major supporters of the additive. Opponents say it can cause an array of problems, including dental fluorosis.
Adams said city officials have not bout any additional fluoride since the council considered eliminating it in 2016. The council voted at that time to deny a bid to buy additional fluoride.
"We're still exhausting those existing supplies," Adams said.
The city has received numerous e-mails for and against fluoridation, Adams said. Three dentists gave their opinions on whether the substance was a benefit to a person's dental health.
Dr. Steve Woodruff said he opposes fluoridation of the water. "It is a drug. It is required, therefore, to be administered with informed consent. And I don't think you're doing that.
 
Dr. Mark Roberts thinks fluoride is beneficial and should be continued. "If you look at the bottom of the page, you'll see all of the dentists...

What is real anarchism? winter oak


By real anarchism, we mean an anarchist vision unblurred by a confusion of other ideas and influences, an anarchist point of view which is strong and coherent because it is built on the foundation stone of anarchist philosophy. Anarchism, as a political movement, is doomed to disintegrate and disappear if it fails to reconnect itself to the roots of its own world-view.

Anarchy comes from the Greek terms arkh meaning ruler and an- meaning without: it therefore means a society without r...

Bread, Butter and Brotherhood Writings - Gilad Atzmon

Gilad Atzmon addresses Keith Kahn-Harris criticism in the Forward

Every few months The Jewish Forward, a New York so- called progressive outlet, appoints one of its less gifted writers to destroy Gilad Atzmon. This week, Keith Kahn-Harris, a London-based sociologist, took on the mission.

Cloaked In Pretensions, Gilad Atzmons Anti-Semitism Soldiers On is the title  Khan- Harris gave to his article. As we will see, Khan-Harris desperately tries to present yours truly as a pretentious masturbatory writer, but instead he takes us on a spectacular journey through a hollow Jerusalemite mind. Khan-Harris fails to substantiate any of his claims. Actually, it seems that by the time Khan-Harris reaches the end of his piece, he has become something resembling an avid converted Atzmonite. Read for yourself:

Atzmons diagnoses of the pathologies of the post-political age certainly resonate with the zeitgeist in a time when extraordinary new alliances and ideological fusions emerge on a daily basis. Atzmon can offer a patina of philosophical respectability, a thrilling sense of intellectual discovery, to fellow adventurers and even if he might wish it to be otherwise, his disavowed Judaism provides a useful alibi to anti-Semites.

I can assure Khan-Harris, that his paragraph would make my Israeli mother proud.

Khan-Harris commission was to portray my work as a directionless anti-Semitic rant. Here, according to Khan-Harris, is an example of my worthless philosophical speculation:

I suggest that instead of looking at the world through the rigid lens of the Right/Left dichotomy, or a particular ideological perspective, it is more instructive to impose an alternative (meta-ideological) method that juxtaposes the human i.e. the human condition, with the political spectrum as a whole. Instead of imposing any particular ideology, be it Right, Left, Capitalism, Fascism and so on, I examine the complementarity between a political system and the...

All The Plenarys Men (Again!) Rigged Game

HSBC, one of the worlds biggest and most systemic banks, has been given yet another dainty slap on the wrist for its role allegedly laundering hundreds of millions for ruthless Mexican drug barons.

A US probe said the bank had been a conduit for drug kingpins and rogue nations. HSBC says the deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) a form of probation has now expired.

Once again, we are left with a very big question: why is it that the U.S. Department of Justice has failed to prosecute any too-big-to-fail banks ormore importantlytheir bankers, even for admitted crimes?

Its a crucial question, because after eight straight years of unremitting prosecutorial failure, it looks very much as if a select group of top banks can, in fact, do no wrong. If thats the case, then the U.S. constitutional republic isnt merely in trouble. Its dead.

A person or group of people who satisfy Blackstones criterion for ultimate sovereign powerthe power to commit crimes with impunitycant exist in a nation where the law reigns supreme. And yet here we are, a decade after the financial crisis began in earnest, and not one TBTF bank executive has gone to jail.

Legally, the TBTF banks are indistinguishable from the King, since the power to commit crimes with impunity swallows all other sovereign powers; such a power isnt even supposed to exist in the U.S., and yet it does.

Moreover, since there cant be two kings in a kingdom, the entire U.S. government, from the president on down, is just one of the Kings men under this formulation of power. The real job of the U.S. government, then, isnt to represent the will of the people at all, its to do the Kings bidding. A nation that isnt governed by law is governed instead by a kingits one or the otherand the presidents inferiority to such an above-the-law sovereign was confirmed over 40 years ago with Nixons ouster. The president, unlike the King, answers to the law (despite Nixons opinion).

Now, you may say that while the TBTF banks might arguably have the de facto power of the King, thats a far cry from wielding such power formally (i.e., having de jure criminal immunity).

The reply to that objection is set forth in this film, All the Plenarys Men, which is a sequel to The Veneer of Justice in a Kingdom of Crime.

Another objection, raised by the DOJ itself, is that it HAS prosecuted TBTF bankers, citing cases like that of Raj Rajaratnam. These cases, however, in fact reveal the DOJ acting on behalf of the criminal global banking cartel.

On that score, the DOJs abysmal track record is by now so extensive and so thorough that its possible to spot legal patterns in the DOJs protracted misca...
