A newsfeed came across our inboxes that promoted a notion that China was somehow misbehaving regarding the use of CRISPR to create edited humans. The dialectic was a non-sequitur because earlier press releases on the efficiency of CRISPR read like a high school newspaper writing about the success of its stageplay being a success because it was over, yet was a total train wreck of a production. CRISPR can indeed edit a genome for the target mutations, however there can be a hundred downstream changes that were neither intended or predicted or controllable. That used to be called: The Operation Was A Success But The Patient Died.
What is CRISPR? CRISPR (/ˈkrɪspər/) (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats) is a family of DNA sequences found within the genomes of prokaryotic organisms such as bacteria and archaea. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnYppmstxIs

Since WWII, exposure to man‐made chemical substances have reached every nook and cranny on earth. The European Chemicals Agency has recorded around 150,000 chemical substances in its database. Most chemicals intended for commercial uses require little or no regulation before entering the market. Pharmaceuticals undergo what appears to be “rigorous” research and regulatory control, however, we know all too well how often the cover story distorts reality. Only when these multi-billion-dollar drugs chemical mixtures begin to exhibit their deadly “side-effects” out on the street do regulatory agencies scurry about for a quick fix. There’s rarely a ban or recall.
Few chemicals are thoroughly tested for toxicity. It is estimated that less than 20% of the many chemicals on the market receive a proper assessment of risks to public health and the environment. Chemicals are one of the three primary known causes of cancer – along with radiation and viruses. Continue reading “Toxic”
This will be a shorter one compared to the Peculiar Plot series. I can understand people lack the attention span to read long pieces, but at the same time do not want to fall for that “Twitter 140 character soundbite” culture where 6 second attention span seekers with the patience of a ferret on crystal meth seem to rule, up to even people who are accustomed to read long pieces or listen to hours of talks, like people in their 50s and above, half or a full generation older than me.
The idea I want to share is the self fulshilling prophecy. It is one of my many neologisms; I like to invent new words to use because the language given to us is scripted to a large extent. By using our own ability to form language, we are humans after all, we can pinpoint what we mean much better without being compromised by agenda pushers.

Every once in a while I try to explain critical elements of global debt-slavery. It’s not a popular topic, I suppose, because we all — excluding the ruling elite — live the same lie. Democracy. Freedom. Justice. Equality. You get the picture. All giant lies. The following comment over at Moon of Alabama this morning may help bring reality into greater focus for some who either deny, or cannot, for one reason or another, bring themselves to accept what simply is. Thank you “donkeytale.” Enjoy! Continue reading “Smell the Coffee.”
Fiat money has been in existence in the U.S. of America since 1973, the year Pres. Nixon removed the nation from “the gold standard.”
So, why are we stuck in pre-1973 thinking about how the federal government spends money to achieve its political (foreign and domestic) agenda.
I have attempted to write about this topic, with little or no reaction from POM readers. Let me try another tact. How about another author with a similar message, and some examples that might awaken the hypno-ape masses? See: Mulga, Japanese artist; http://mulgatheartist.net/en/shop/?post=267.
Repetition is how apes learn. I repeat my(ape)self: “ ….there is no tax-payer money” in federal finance/appropriations. https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/09/21/taxpayer-money-threatens-medicare-for-all-and-every-other-social-program/
It’s never a matter of being able to “afford” health care or a “pay for” a retirement program that keeps us from eating out of dumpsters. It’s a matter of whether or not Congress can find it in its greedy, self-serving, soulless existence to give a shit or not. Obviously, we have a lot of work to do. Patience, grasshopper.
I have one household chore that generally takes well over an hour, and so like to have background noise. This morning I listened to Brian Staveley in a 9/11 video hosted by AB and Fakeologist.
I am not a good liar, and in fact decided years ago that it is better in almost all cases (except when feelings are needlessly hurt) to be honest. Consequently, I have never studied the art of lying. My first wife was a highly skilled liar, part of the reason she was able to charm me into being her mate. I still marvel at how she can tell detailed lies with seeming innocence and absolute conviction. That is what it takes to be a good liar.

When government agencies like the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management produce the danger, the propaganda hyping the danger, and the protection against it at a price, that’s racketeering. The definition of a racketeer is someone who creates a threat and then charges for its reduction.
“War is just a racket. A racket is best described I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.” – Smedley Butler
Government land management agencies commonly simulate, fabricate and exaggerate threats in ways common to all other racketeers. Constantly at war with the forces of nature and the land they manage, this pattern of immoral extractive commerce targeting public land is a microcosm of a vast universe of Government Sponsored Enterprise (GSE). GSEs generate huge profits for private companies and government, in partnership Continue reading “Some Call it Forest Management, I Call it Racketeering.”
