Child Abuse

From an article recently posted on the Christian Post:

Eight year-old Jack Wilson was on a weekend visit to his grandparents’ house in mid-December 2016 when he informed his grandmother that his name was really Jacquelyn.

“Grammy, my name is Jacquelyn,” he complained as he walked into the room and sat down at the kitchen table for lunch. He had just received Christmas presents from friends of his grandmother addressed to “Jack” and was visibly upset.

“Why is that your name?” Amanda Wilson, his grandmother, asked in response as she set a plate of chicken and rice in front of him.

He replied: “Because I’m a girl now.”

“What makes you think you’re a girl?” she inquired.

“It’s my gender,” he said.

She pressed him: “Well, what’s a gender?”

He stared back at her, puzzled, and said: “I don’t know.”

Amanda Wilson hasn’t seen her grandson in two years and each day she longs to hold him in her arms and hug him but can’t. Her daughter, Marissa, and her spouse began believing that little Jack was really a girl around three years ago and because Wilson doesn’t agree they’ve cut off all contact with her, no longer speak, and don’t allow her and her husband to see him.

Shortly after Jack turned 7, Marissa and her spouse excitedly announced on social media that Jack was a girl and they couldn’t wait to start him on puberty blockers in two years when he turned 9. They posted a picture of Marissa’s spouse and Jack outside a children’s hospital that is home to one of the 55 transgender clinics now operating in the United States.

The social media account Wilson’s daughter had was deactivated and Wilson no longer has the exact words of her daughter’s happiness about starting Jack on puberty blockers but she still has the picture.

At Wilson’s request, The Christian Post is using pseudonyms in this report and has changed or removed identifying details in order to maintain her anonymity. Although she was baptized as a Methodist, Wilson is not a subscriber to any particular religious faith but chose to speak with CP because she felt it was important that the voice of a grandmother is heard as more parents speak out about their heartache of losing their children to what many are calling a transgender “social contagion.” She has reached out to many secular journalists to no avail.

In 2008, Marissa, who lives just outside of Portland, Maine, was in a relationship with a man, became pregnant and gave birth to Jack in 2009. That relationship ended soon after Jack was born and just a few years later, when Marissa was 26, she came out as a lesbian and started dating a woman. Approximately 16 months later, they married in June 2013. Seven months into that marriage her spouse came out as transgender and changed her name to a male name and started taking hormones. The couple separated last year and now share custody of Jack.

What do you call this if not child abuse?

As mentioned in a post last week, as Christianity has been systematically removed from western civilization so has any moral imperative to be honest.  We have seen this most notably in politics and science, to name just two examples.  Without any higher moral impetus to tell the truth, money and ego have pervaded the science community and resulted in a reproducibility crisis, amongst other things.  Another area that has been hit hard, because the science community is unwilling to tell the truth about many things, is more extensive research on “uncomfortable” topics.

There are many verboten topics in science including IQ with respect to race, sexuality, and honest climate science.  Within the past few years there has been a concerted effort to pervert sexuality.  They tell us it is on a spectrum, that there are more than 2 genders, and that homosexuality is inherently natural.  Before I go further I should say I do not have a dog in this fight, other than wanting the best for our society.  I am on a journey to seek the truth, and not turn away from it regardless if it makes me uncomfortable or reveals hard truths that are painful to swallow.

I don’t know if homosexuality is natural.  Clearly it cannot be the norm, or else we would not survive as a species.  My guidance on the matter comes from the Bible.  But we need to do far more research into the topic.  While many people are convinced that it is entirely genetic that is highly questionable.  There are some studies, though hard to confirm in this day and age, that have studied identical twins.  One of them is straight and the other is not.  If this is true, then it clearly cannot be entirely genetic.

What’s the point of all this?  The point is we need better studies on sexuality in general.  We need to understand how one becomes homosexual.  We need to better understand the underpinnings of what makes one think they are transsexual.  And we need to be honest and truthful about the results that we find.  Going further, if what we do find suggests it is something mental or points to mentally unstable people, perhaps we need to reconsider who should be allowed to be able to adopt and raise children.

Again, this is an uncomfortable topic and I am merely searching for the truth.  If we can’t even talk about the subject we have a major problem as a society.  I don’t want to have to say that we shouldn’t allow some people to be able to adopt children and others not.  But if there is consistent evidence that points to negative outcomes for the children being adopted, the entirely innocent party in this, the topic needs to be revisited.  This to me is a clear cut case of child abuse.  At least one, if not both, of the parents have serious issues, and they are foisting these issues onto an innocent child.  There is no way in hell this kid thinks they are a girl on their own.  It is being placed in their heads by the parents.  And no.  It is not brave.  It is not admirable.  It is disgusting.  They are poisoning this child’s brain with this vile garbage.  Socially (and soon unnaturally) engineering him into being what THEY want to see him become, not with the best interest of him in mind.  Can we please use some common sense and call this what it is, rather than kowtow to the sick fantasies of the parents?

Sigh. Bye bye AirPods

The jury is still out about whether this truly poses a health risk or not, but do you want to be the guinea pig for this?  I certainly don’t.  250 scientists have signed a petition warning that using blue tooth ear buds could cause cancer.

Popular wireless headphones may pose cancer risks to wearers, according to a United Nations and World Health Organization petition.

Some 250 have signed the petition, which warns against numerous devices that emit radiofrequency radiation, which is used in WiFi, cellular data and Bluetooth.

Wireless Bluetooth earbuds like Apple’s popular AirPods may represent a particularly worrisome danger.

‘My concern for AirPods is that their placement in the ear canal exposes tissues in the head to relatively high levels of radio-frequency radiation,’ University of Colorado at Colorado Springs biochemistry professor Jerry Phillips told Medium.

The scientific jury is still out on the whether or not the particular devices an cause cancer, but animal studies on the kind of radiofrequency radiation that they emit has suggested a link to cancer.

And, in some cases, the levels of radiation found to be carcinogenic were significantly lower than the maximum allowed by federal and international guidelines.

Much like my concerns with 5G, we all kind of just assume that there has been exhaustive research on this before they sell these to the public.  They do not.  At this point, why risk exposing yourself to either one when you really don’t have to.  Are you willing to take that risk for the most minor of conveniences?  It wouldn’t shock me if some day people looked back at us and how we used cell phones and wireless technology much the same way we look back at heavy smokers and wonder how they could ever possibly think that wasn’t terrible health-wise.

This article has a little bit more detail:

But some researchers question the conventional wisdom that heavier amounts of EMF are inherently more risky. In a 2018 review titled “Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health,” Martin Pall, a professor emeritus of biochemistry at Washington State University, makes the case that a device’s potential health impacts are not dependent solely on the strength or intensity of its EMF signals.

One big problem, he says, has to do with electromagnetic “pulses,” which are quick bursts of electromagnetic energy that help wireless devices communicate. “We have repeated studies that clearly show that pulsed EMFs are, in most cases, much more biologically active than are non-pulsed EMFs of the same average intensity,” he says. “All wireless communication devices communicate, at least in part, via pulsation, and the smarter they are, the more they pulse.”

He says most health authorities mostly ignore these factors. “The so-called safety guidelines do not predict biological effects,” he says.

Phillips reiterates this point. The current wireless exposure standards are “patently out of touch” with the research, he adds. “We still don’t have a handle on what constitutes dose or what parameters of exposure are important,” he says. “More research certainly is needed.”

Moskowitz thinks using wired hands-free earphones is a simple, effective way for people to lower their exposures to cellphone-emitted EMFs. “The fact that people are dependent on these devices and love them complicates things incredibly because they’ll reject any information on exposures putting them at risk,” he says. “The irony is that we don’t really need them.”

Just a reminder: this is who voted against the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”

They will want this one to disappear from the news cycle as quickly as possible.  Do not let it.  Write these senators.  More importantly, vote these monsters out when they are up for re-election.  At least three of these swamp creatures are running for president in 2020.  As a reminder, this is what they voted against:

A BILL

To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1.SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”.

SEC. 2.FINDINGS.

Congress finds the following:

(1) If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.

(2) Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.

They are literally voting to allow babies to be killed after an attempted late-term abortion.  When they are alive.  Infanticide.  Plain and simple.  It does not get any worse than this.

Whooping cough outbreak in LA

Via CBS Los Angeles:

STUDIO CITY (CBSLA) — An exclusive private school has been hit with dozens cases of whooping cough, which has sickened a large number of teenagers across Los Angeles County.

Health officials say they are monitoring three large clusters of highly contagious whooping cough among 11- to 18-year-olds. The county Department of Health issued a health alert to pediatricians and other health care providers about the uptick in whooping cough last week.

Harvard-Westlake, which has campuses in Studio City and Beverly Crest, was hit particularly hard, with 30 students coming down with whooping cough since November, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Of about 1,600 students attend Harvard-Westlake, where tuition is close to $40,000 a year, only 18 opted out of vaccinations for medical reasons. None of the 30 students who contracted whooping cough were not vaccinated.

Strange way to word it at the bottom there.  This has been a recurring theme lately across America: xyz 3rd world sickness crops up somewhere, anti-vaxxers are blamed.  That narrative is quickly being torn to pieces.  And the top comments were right on top of it.

WhoopingCoughComments

Los Angeles is a shithole.  Most major cities in California are these days, unsurprisingly given how the state is run and the policies they enact.  San Diego dealt with an outbreak of Hepatitis A only a couple of years ago, and the fecal issue in San Francisco has been well documented as well.  As cities get dirtier, homeless populations increase, and we continue to let in hoardes of 3rd world people legally and illegally the sanitation problem will only get worse, and you’ll continue to see an increase in outbreaks of diseases we had controlled decades ago.

The whole vaccination argument is a nuanced one.  Most people who are labeled as anti-vaccination usually aren’t against the idea of vaccination altogether, they are skeptical about side effects that may not be reported, or that some perhaps don’t even have the active ingredients they purport to have.  And who knows, perhaps vaccinations back when I was a kid are different than today’s.  Would it shock you to learn that some in big pharma have ulterior motives or hide things that may take away from selling their product?  Either way, now these people are pounced on as backwards, or reintroducing sicknesses we handled decades ago.  Do not fall for the trap.

Arizona looking to declare porn a public health crisis

This measure is really just symbolic, but could maybe lead to stricter regulations some day.  Via azcentral:

Citing concerns about the proliferation of erotic images online and their “toxic” effect on behavior, Arizona lawmakers are pushing to declare pornography a public health crisis.

State Rep. Michelle Udall, R-Mesa, introduced a measure that declares the crisis and states porn “perpetuates a sexually toxic environment that damages all areas of our society.”

“Like the tobacco industry, the pornography industry has created a public health crisis,” Udall told lawmakers. “Pornography is used pervasively, even by minors.”

Udall’s proposal, House Concurrent Resolution 2009, is largely symbolic and has no legal effect, but supporters say they hope it opens the door to new restrictions on porn.

Similar measures declaring a crisis have passed in at least 11 states, using similar text from model legislation written by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. The group, formerly known as Morality in Media, contends porn is directly connected to other acts of exploitation.

Issues like these are tricky.  As I wrote about recently, porn is degenerate.  Especially the kind of stuff the major porn websites push nowadays like incest and non-consensual sex.  The issue is tricky because, much like drugs, I am not sure the government should have the right to determine what you do to yourself or watch.  On the other hand, if there are serious adverse effects to society at large that may open the door to some regulations.  For example, perhaps they could ban porn that pushes incest or rape because that truly is a net negative effect to society at large, much like drunk driving.

The reality is as Christianity and Christian morals continue to decline in the west, we will continue to see more and more debauchery and bad behavior.  Unlike what they want you to believe, without that moral framework most people do not behave the same way.  A Christian society would likely not need to enact laws like this in the first place.  Perhaps some level of control is needed if we are to continue down this path straying further away from the Christian roots this country was founded on.

Pure Evil

An old article from 2015 is circulating around voat about reports of Planned Parenthood keeping aborted babies alive to harvest organs.  This is the hill worth dying on, folks.  This is pure evil.  And it is not debatable.  Shame on any pro-choicer who defends funding this institution.  Enough with the pleasantries.  IT IS NOT OKAY TO KEEP BABIES ALIVE TO HARVEST THEIR ORGANS.  I thought I was once pro-choice for very early abortions.  No more.  Via the article:

In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group’s practices.

Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.

StemExpress supervisor “gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. And I can’t even describe what that feels like,” said Ms. O’Donnell, who has been featured in earlier videos by the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group that previously had released six undercover clips involving Planned Parenthoodpersonnel and practices.

And a little further down:

California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat, said the Center for Medical Progress, which is calling for the federal government to cease its $500 million a year support to Planned Parenthood and for it to be investigated.

“Today’s video is especially gruesome, and it shows, once again, the barbarity of what takes place at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country,” said Rep. Joseph R. Pitts, Pennsylvania Republican and chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health, one of several congressional panels investigating Planned Parenthood.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Wednesday that all the videos are “disturbing,” and his committee’s investigation will look into whether “any federal funding supported transactions involving fetal tissue.”

“Top-level employees of Planned Parenthood admit to changing their procedures to harvest intact bodies of unborn children for body-part trafficking,” said Rep. Trent Franks, Arizona Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution and civil justice.

Mr. Franks and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, also said Wednesday that they have written to 58 Planned Parenthood affiliates. They are seeking 10 years of data about all abortions, late-term abortions, “born-alive” infants, fetal tissue collections and any modifications of abortion techniques to “increase the odds of preserving intact fetal tissue and organs.”

Five states — Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Utah and New Hampshire — already have defunded Planned Parenthood.

The video is posted below.  It is a little gruesome at parts, especially from the 5′ 30″ mark going forward.

The article was from 2015.  Planned Parenthood’s annual report from 2017-2018 shows that they are still well funded over half a billion dollars a year from the government.  That is your tax money, folks.

This is what happens when you turn away from God.  People can roll their eyes; once upon a time I would have too.  But it is true.  Since we have turned away from Christianity can we honestly say we are better off as a country?  Have we really progressed as a society?  No.  Christianity instilled a moral compass that has been eroded to the point where you are shamed if you question the KILLING OF BABIES.  Where some people will honestly justify this, like it is an acceptable moral position, saying a woman has a right to choose what to do with her body.  NO.  The moment you decide to make a bad decision, the moment you choose to get blackout drunk and sleep with someone you probably don’t even know, you have made your decision.  When another life now depends on your own, you do not have the right to kill it.  Shame on us for ever allowing it to come to this.  Where we cannot even hold that moral position without caving to some BS about “my body my choice”.  It is not progress to kill a human life because a woman wants carte blanche to sleep with as many partners as she wants and then not suffer any of the consequences of her actions.  Even worse is that we are all paying for it.  Why are we funding birth control measures?  Why are we funding abortions?  Yes, Planned Parenthood receives federal reimbursement through Medicaid.  Medicaid covers abortions.

Enough is enough.  Do not commit the sin of omission by sitting idly by knowing what you now know about the situation.  Write your state representatives.  Do not be afraid to call out pro-choicers, feminists, or anyone else who will try to justify this unjustifiable position.  Vote out the politicians who support funding Planned Parenthood.  Consider moving to states that will not fund this.  The reasons continue to pile up for why I should leave California and move back to New Hampshire.  California is at the very heart of all of this.  We all need to step up and take action.  Merely shaking our heads and saying how terrible it is is not enough.  Spread the word.

More abortion atrocities

This time in Virginia.  A bill has been proposed there to abort up to…and after…birth.  Via freebeacon.com:

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D.) commented Wednesday about a controversial 40-week abortion bill and in so doing said the law allows an abortion to take place after the infant’s birth.

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said, alluding to the physician and mother discussing whether the born infant should live or die.

A Democratic lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates proposed a bill Tuesday that would allow abortions through the end of the third trimester of pregnancy. The video of Delegate Kathy Tran presenting her bill led to an exchange where she admitted that her bill would allow for a mother to abort her child minutes before giving birth.

“How late in the third trimester could a physician perform an abortion if he indicated that it would impair the mental health of the woman?” Majority Leader Todd Gilbert (R.) asked.

“Or physical health,” Tran said.

“Okay,” Gilbert replied. “I’m talking about the mental health.”

“I mean, through the third trimester,” Tran said. “The third trimester goes up to 40 weeks.”

“Okay, but to the end of the third trimester?” Gilbert asked.

“Yup, I don’t think we have a limit in the bill,” Tran said.

“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth, she has physical signs that she’s about to give birth, would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified?” Gilbert asked. “She’s dilating.”

Tran responded that is a decision between the woman and her doctor would have to make. Gilbert asked if her bill would allow an abortion right before the infant was born.

“My bill would allow that, yes,” Tran said.

And a little further down:

Northam continued by saying government shouldn’t be involved in these types of decisions and that legislators, especially male legislators, shouldn’t be telling women what to do.

“I think this was really blown out of proportion. But again we want the government not to be involved in these types of decisions. We want the decision to be made by the mothers and their providers. And this is why Julie, that legislators, most of whom are men by the way, shouldn’t be telling a woman what she should or shouldn’t be doing with her body,” Northam said.

I don’t need to be a woman to know that it’s fucking MURDER to abort a baby 10 seconds before a woman gives birth.  Lady, that is not your right.  Do these people have any compassion at all?  How utterly self-centered and morally deprived does one have to be to take the position that this is okay?  This is pure evil.

Again, as with the NY abortion law, this country may not be worth saving if this is the direction we are going to go.  I do not want to live in a country where this becomes acceptable.  We have to fight back against this.  Literally murdering children.

Are people enjoying the civilization we have now since we removed Christ from the equation?  Is this really better?  Do people really feel like we’ve hit some kind of moral nirvana, some higher level of moral consciousness, since we became a post-Christian nation?  I for one do not think allowing babies to be murdered seconds before they are born, or after they are born, is a step in the right direction.  I will post this video once again as long as the link stays up to remind people what a third trimester abortion entails.

NY approves horrific abortion law

Something those at CNN will no doubt applaud as progressive and some great step forward.

On the 46th anniversary of Roe V. Wade, New York state passed a law to protect women’s access to abortion if the historic case is overturned.

“Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion. With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo after signing New York’s Reproductive Health Act on Tuesday night.
Not only will the law preserve access to abortions, it also removes abortion from the state’s criminal code. This would protect doctors or medical professionals who perform abortions from criminal prosecution. The law also now allows medical professionals who are not doctors to perform abortions in New York.
“The old law had criminal penalties. It was written that the doctor or professional could be held criminally liable,” Cuomo said during an interview on WNYC Wednesday.
The law also addresses late-term abortions. Under New York’s Reproductive Health Act, they can be performed after 24 weeks if the fetus is not viable or when necessary to protect the life of the mother.
“It’s about the health and safety of the mother and it’s always been the point where the conservatives wave the flag, they want to roll back Roe v. Wade — this is not gray here it’s black and white,” said Cuomo.
Atrocious.  This is not progress.  This is a disaster and morally reprehensible on so many levels.  Essentially they’ve legalized 3rd trimester abortions.  They now allow less qualified people to perform abortions.  And they’ve removed it from the criminal code so if a woman is assaulted and the baby and/or the mother dies the consequences are much less.
This whole notion of “my body, my choice” bullshit has gone way too far.  How about this ladies, if you make terrible decisions why not live with the consequences of your actions?  Getting blackout drunk and sleeping with numerous random partners will have consequences.  The fact that we’ve removed said consequences does not absolve the bad behavior.  It’s clear that these women clearly aren’t mother material in the first place, but it’s disgusting to think that they’d end a life, a defenseless life literally depending on you to survive, because, welp, “my body my choice”.  Please spare me the BS about the health concerns.  The amount of sketchy stuff that goes on in abortion clinics, as we’ve seen with Planned Parenthood executives bargaining to sell baby parts, does not give me any hope that they’ll have strict guidelines at all regarding the health issue.  Mental anguish will surely be enough to “warrant” this 3rd trimester abortion.
Nope.  This is pure evil.  A baby can be delivered prematurely months before they are due.  This is not just a few cells.  This is a baby.  The fact that this even needs to be discussed shows you how deep the moral rot is in our country.  Remove Christianity from Western Civilization and this is what you get: celebration over being able to abort a baby minutes before it’s born.
I’ve tried to temper my judgement for people defending this in the event that maybe they just don’t know what goes into a 3rd trimester abortion.  Share this video, if it even survives on YouTube, on 3rd trimester abortions.  Gruesome stuff.

23andMe sold access to their DNA library to big pharma giant GSK

Via vice.com:

You really, really shouldn’t give your DNA to genomics companies like 23andMe or Ancestry. As the recent arrest of the Golden State Killer reminded us, these genetic databases are a goldmine for law enforcement. Catching serial killers isn’t bad, of course, but problems start to arise when, say, these genetic databases are used to target people for deportation.

But in case you needed another reason why voluntarily giving your DNA to companies is a bad idea, on Wednesday the genomic-ancestry company 23andMe announced it was forking over its DNA data to the world’s ninth-largest pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). The exclusive partnership gives GSK access to 23andMe’s database that includes the genomes of over 5 million people.

The agreement was pioneered by the two companies’ chief scientists, Hal Barron and Richard Scheller, who previously worked together at another drug company called Genentech. Indeed, the partnership is a sweet deal for both companies. 23andMe sold GSK a $300-million stake for the four-year agreement and GSK gets exclusive access to one of the world’s largest private genetic databases. Ostensibly, the genetic information is going to be used for “research and development of innovative new medicines and potential cures.”

This sucks but isn’t altogether surprising.  It was inevitable, really.  You can opt-out by changing your consent form, but who really knows if that means anything.  The fact that 23andMe’s co-founder, Anne Wojcicki, is married to Google’s Sergey Brin doesn’t exactly give me a warm, fuzzy feeling.

Given that they’ve already used these kinds of sites to catch criminals unbeknownst to the individuals submitting their DNA, the things they can do with that kind of access are worrying.  Don’t for a second think that these people have your best interests at heart.  At best, AT BEST, you can hope that they’re just trying to make a profit on drugs for diseases and conditions that do not have definitive treatments or cures yet.  Even then, what kind of upside is it if they’re just going to upcharge an exorbitant amount, often times to the same damn customers who gave their DNA in the first place, for treatments once they’re developed.

The other side of the coin is much darker.  Very likely Deep State assets are already deeply entrenched in big pharma.  What if they have nefarious purposes far beyond just wanting to turn a profit?  Nobody doubts that some vaccines can be very effective in combating certain diseases.  What many apparently don’t understand is when people are freaking out about vaccines they’re either worried that big pharma is deliberately putting something other than the intended vaccine in (like here) or they’ve just buried studies and research that show adverse effects (autism, maybe?) because they’ve invested so much into the product already.  Who’s to say it would be any different here?  What if they use this information to synthesize drugs that would make it difficult or impossible to curb an addiction to a particular type of drug?  Check out the Sackler family some time.  Or just check out the graphic below, which happens to be comparing the number of opioid deaths as compared to those who died in German controlled concentration camps in WWII.  The comments he made at the OxyContin launch party quoted are from the mid 1990s.

187057.jpg

I don’t know if there’s a way to completely wipe out your DNA from any of these companies.  It’s too bad.  A site like this has some very cool ancestral and health benefits to it.  Imagine being able to sign up for a product or service by a company without having to worry about your damn information being sold against your will to other people?  What a crazy idea.

Even if they said they opted you out from using your DNA for research (or whatever else), can you really trust them?  Either way, if you have signed up for one of these sites, and 23andMe in particular, at the very least opt out of giving access to GSK to your DNA.

A Race to the Bottom

As the Government shutdown continues to drag on one thing seems apparent: those opposing the wall are hoping their constituents aren’t paying attention or just don’t care.  Consider a few of the facts presented by President Trump in a letter President Trump sent to Congress earlier this month:

  • In fiscal year (FY) 2018, 17,000 adults at the border with existing criminal records were arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and border agents.
  • In FY2017 and FY2018, ICE officers arrested approximately 235,000 aliens on various criminal charges or convictions within the interior of the United States—including roughly 100,000 for assault, 30,000 for sex crimes, and 4,000 for homicides.
  • We are now averaging 60,000 illegal and inadmissible aliens a month on our Southern Border.
  • Last month alone, more than 20,000 minors were smuggled into the United States.
  • The immigration court backlog is nearly 800,000 cases.
  • There has been a 2,000 percent increase in asylum claims over the last five years, with the largest growth coming from Central America—while around 9 in 10 claims from Central American migrants are ultimately rejected by the immigration courts, the applicant has long since been released into the interior of the United States.
  • In FY2017, roughly 135,000 illegal and inadmissible family units arrived from Central America. Of those, less than 2 percent have been successfully removed from the country due to a shortage of resources and glaring loopholes in our federal laws.
  • So far in FY2019, we have seen a 280 percent increase in family units from FY2018.
  • 300 Americans are killed every week from heroin—90 percent of which floods across our Southern Border.
  • Illegal immigration is a humanitarian crisis: 1 in 3 migrant women is sexually assaulted on the journey northward to the U.S. border; 50 illegal migrants a day are referred for emergency medical care; and CBP rescues 4,300 people a year who are in danger and distress.

That is an airtight case that there is a problem at the border and that a wall is one of many things that needs to be done to help curb the problem.  Then consider that through restructuring NAFTA we are saving billions of dollars (Mexico indirectly paying), or consider the staggering amounts of wasteful government spending that occurs on a daily basis.  Or how about the amount of money we spend on foreign wars that we shouldn’t even be a part of?  Or this; Rand Paul recently tweeted that we give foreign aid to China and borrow money from them to pay them back…

The point being that we waste so much money on so much crap that even if the wall was a complete waste of money, $5.7 billion dollars is less than a drop in the bucket compared to the amount we spend each year and why not give it a shot to see if it does anything?

It gets even worse.  Chuck and Nancy, the two-headed monster that is the mouthpiece of the opposition party, voted for fencing several times, as did then Senators Obama and Clinton.  We even had the money earmarked for it and the fence was simply never built.  So we’re supposed to take Chuck and Nancy on their word that it’s immoral and just bad for *reasons* while they previously voted for it in the past?  And for the cherry on top, why is it okay that we fund a wall in Jordan but cannot do the same for ourselves?  Why is it okay for Israel to have a wall but not for ourselves?  Did you know Chuck Schumer, as well as many other members of Congress have dual citizenship and are Israeli citizens as well?  Why is it okay for them to defend their borders, Chuck, but we aren’t?

It is clear they do not care about Americans and in fact think so little of us that they think we’re stupid enough to listen to them deride the wall without noticing their past track record or their current stances in general.  It is downright insulting and shows the absolute disdain with which they view the American public.

Which leads to the thrust of the idea.  I really believe these people are hoping that they can dumb down the American public faster than they think we can catch onto their lies.  Watch a news broadcast from even 15 years ago compared to today.  You may once in a while actually find a spirited debate where opposing views are actually debated at the same time and both viewpoints being heard.  Take a look at this video of Jared Taylor talking with Donahue about race in America.  This conversation would NEVER occur today.  They would NEVER want you to hear the facts or hear the viewpoint that Jared brings to the table.  No.  Now segments are one-sided and they are so short nothing of substance is ever said before another commercial break or topic change takes place.  The “opponent” in today’s segments are usually controlled opposition (read: approved).  Sometimes someone like Tucker will get someone on where there is genuine pushback but the segments are so short that neither side can really have the time to get their point across and it often ends in a screaming match that Tucker needs to end because they aren’t getting anywhere.

This isn’t a coincidence.  The mainstream media is dumbing down the American public.  They are removing the critical thinking skills that we all once had in much greater abundance.  Couple that with distracting smart phones, shorter video clips, more commercials, and less people reading, and you get a genuinely dumbed down public.  IQ scores are falling worldwide.  Mainstream media will want you to believe that is due to climate change…but it is more likely due to the reasons stated in the Unz article.  Either way, the fact is they really are falling.  People really are getting dumber.  You are not just imagining it.  And Americans are reading less and less every year which cannot help critical thinking skills or holding attention spans.

All of this adds up to people like Chuck and Nancy thinking they can somehow justify their current position on the wall and not think anyone will notice how patently absurd it is.  Or worse, maybe they do know and just don’t think anyone will care.  Entertainment has been the opiate of the masses.  So long as people are comfortable and distracted many simply will not care about a wall or the hypocrisies of these people.  I fear a majority of the population will be in for a rude awakening when civilization as we know it begins to break down because we never addressed these problems and let them fester and metastasize to the point that they become uncontrollable.  Perhaps we have already passed the point of no return.  The trend certainly seems to be pointing that way.  But maybe it has not.  And I’m thankful we have a President who is standing his ground and genuinely fighting to reverse this trend.
