Goading the Sheeple Stampede




When I got together with my extended family to give Thanks on the one day a year we are allowed to, by indulging in primal gluttony and partially-hydrogenated cheats (I eat stuffing and gravy with my turkey, despite the near certainty that the ingredients include GMO wheat flour and soybean oil margarine croutons,) the usual debates regarding religion and politics arose, and I left everyone at the table for conversation flummoxed with my contribution to the conversational bonding occasion.

The red kool aid drinkers and the blue kool aid drinkers of my family argued vociferously on the topic of race, riots and police actions in Ferguson, Missouri. Quality family time, I tell you!

Neither drunkards of the two-party kool aid charade could argue with my observation that when one watched the national news media's coverage of the event, it was readily observable that the tell-a-vision press was deliberately attempting to instigate our Brave New World Order's Post-Racial Amerikkkan Society's horizon event.

Those bastards crafting their deceptive narratives full of implied race-mongering, lies of omission and overt pandering to the emotions of the viewers are deliberately and purposely pushing for a nation-wide race war in the West.

THEY  want another episode of the Watts riots in the 60's and the L.A. riots over the King verdict in the 90's.

THEY want the underclasses to take their bait and engage in civil chaos and looting, provoking an armed response.

Nothing would please them more than to broadcast live images of crowd dispersion with tear gas and pepper spray, followed by a hail of rubber bullets and truncheon beat downs of bystanders caught up in the moment by riot-gear armored agents of the State. The more these events of unrest and violence occur, the more the elites in charge of this country have excuse to implement their agenda for creating a dystopian police state.



By expressing these ideas, I was told that I am "too conspiratorial" and "everything is not a conspiracy!"

What else can you call it, when you watch any of the national news broadcasts on the topic forearmed with the knowledge of the events that transpired thanks to the alternative media found on teh Interwebz?

I pointed out that the reporting from SeeBS national news broadcast, interviewing Michael Brown's parents emoting their sorrows at the loss of their son, while the tell-a-vision screen broadcast a peaceful photo of Brown looking happy, relaxed and completely non-threatening.


Why did such a nice looking young boy get himself shot by the police?

The implications of the news reporting on the SeeBS national broadcast was plainly obvious:

The officer was white, and we all know there is only one reason why white cops shoot black citizens...

There was absolutely zero reporting on the context of the incident itself or the events that lead up to the shooting. The only report was the teleprompter reading talking head stating something to the effect of "...witnesses stated that Micheal Brown had his hands raised when he was shot."

Michael Brown Remembered As A 'Gentle Giant'

No mention of the YouTube video viewed by millions of Brown throwing his considerable weight around with the convenience store clerk to rob the premises of some  tobacco products. Even the most liberal progressive blue kool aid drinker at my family's Thanksgiving meal couldn't deny they themselves were at least aware of the existence of that video.

I noted how the SeeBS news segment I had watched, closed with a statement by Brown's Father responding to the SeeBS tell-a-vision talking head's leading interview query: (I paraphrase from memory here:)

SeeBS Journalist: "He said he wouldn't do anything differently if he had do it all over again. What do you have to say to him?"

Father:  "Only you know why you woke up that day and decided to do what you were going to do!" 

It was an accusation of deliberate, premeditated murder with racism implied as the sole motive, in response to a quote taken out of context to make it appear like the white officer was an unapologetic murderer who gleefully shot an innocent black boy just for the fun of it.

Whatever happened that fateful day in Ferguson, one thing is for certain. The "News" was not intent on reporting the truth. They were engaged in forging a narrative and manufacturing consensus to promote a violent reaction amongst the citizenry.

THEY were doing everything within their power to utilize every conceivable propaganda trick to manufacture mass media consensus to goad and provoke all African-descended denizens of this nation into violent mobs of anarchy and eventual conflict with their communities' militarized police forces.

But my relatives who acknowledged my point about the deceptive and inflammatory reporting of SeeBS had a different explanation for what was going on...I forgot something important here: it just can't be a conspiracy...

No, they're pushing civil unrest and racial tension for ratings.

Even if that were the sole motivation for the mass media pushing a seemingly uniform narrative across all channels, the explanation proffered by the Conspiracy-deniers is that the media only engages in dishonest reporting simply to drive up advertising revenues.

Whether they are promoting racial unrest and a breakdown of civilized norms to keep us all divided, conquered and ultimately distracted so they can continue to implement their Brave New World Order police State, or if they simply doing it to get more ratings to get more profit, THEY are deliberately conspiring to promote lies, half-truths and propaganda to effect civil violence, unrest, rioting and looting.

We may disagree on the motives of the conspirators behind the creation of this "info-tainment" news reporting, but why does the idea that a CONSPIRACY automatically means one is mentally unbalanced and obsessed with UFO's, Reptile Aliens, Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster and Chupacabra?

The brainwashing of the American masses via the "news" broadcasting is a refined and perfected feat of technocratic engineering. Their vision for us has been told and sold, and we are now ready for the next stage of our global evolution as a species.




The mental short circuiting of the average INCorporated-media-shaped-mind when it comes to the very concept of CONSPIRACY, is one of the most impressive feats of brainwashing ever accomplished by our regularly scheduled programming creators.

That Wapiti Just Got A Lot More Elusive




I just noticed one of my "must read" bloggers on my blogroll, The Elusive Wapiti, has closed up shop:

Readers, it is time to shutter this blog.  Nothing's going on, merely a decision to re-allocate my finite time more toward that which matters more--my family.

I wish everyone who made a habit of reading my humble articles all the best, and I'll keep the links bar at left up a few weeks so that those who use this site as an aggregator may make alternate arrangements.

May your skies always be blue, your weather fair, and may the Lord our God bless you and yours.

EW


Bummer. I totally get the sentiment, but rather then closing up shop, I just blog intermittently, infrequently and only when I really have nothing better to do. But taking down all your posts? May I offer you the argument to perhaps convince you to at least restore your extensive archives?

Don't Delete Your Blogs
Of course, not all people will want to keep blogging forever. If you no longer feel the motivation, that's fine. It is a thankless job and the pay sucks. But please, oh please, don't delete your blog! Not only does it remove from the internet a significant body of work that others might find and read, whether old or not, but it also removes all of those links in the articles, in the comments, and on the sidebar, which support those of us who still are blogging. Most guys who quit blogging have not lost the faith in the message, they simply are fed-up with blogging. There's nothing wrong with becoming a Man Going His Own Way (MGHOW) and moving on - in fact, it is one of the natural conclusions of MGTOW. But please, if you've found a path to enlightenment through MGTOW and the manosphere which resulted in you starting up a blog, leave your work up so that others may find it, and so that the links in your blog may direct others towards those who are still actively blogging about it.    

You'll note that Rob Fedders certainly practiced what he preached. Please consider it, Brother! You were definitely one of the better bloggers out here on these fringes of teh Interwebz.

Fare thee well, EW. You will be missed.

A hui hou!

Genetically Modified Childhood



Yet again I was asked recently by someone I had not seen in a long time what my "secret" was for losing all that extra weight I used to carry around.

Used to be, anyone asked, I'd just say I did the "Paleo Diet" and if they were interested, I'd tell 'em to just check out marksdailyapple.com. But before I could even do that, the question was followed up with "You're not one of those caveman-paleo diet fanatics, are you?"

Okay. Hearing that from this particular person convinced me once and for all: the PALEO DIET has jumped the shark.

So I answered: "I'm not on a diet, I just don't eat GMO."

"That's all you had to do?"

"Yup. Thing is, once you start looking into just how much of the food we eat is sourced from GMO crops, you find yourself eating like a caveman."

Heh.

While it does appear that the Paleo diet  has indeed been co-opted, subverted and marginalized in popular consciousness, I like to think that it went through a reformation once the most influential bloggers and writers of the Paleo blogosphere eventually rejected the idea that "low carb" and "zero carb" dieting is a key component to the praxeology.

It took years to get rid of the commonly accepted idea that carbohydrate consumption itself was the reason for the rising rates of obesity and sickness of the citizenry all across the bloated plains. Same goes for various versions that involve measuring the ratios of fats to protein in your primal meals. This is because when many of us who first discovered the "paleo diet" blogosphere found successful weight loss and improved health and vitality after adopting the proscriptions, it was only too easy to credit the "low carb-high fat" theory as to why this "diet" seemed to work miraculously.

But now that many of the luminaries of the Paleo blogposphere have moved on to studying the importance of gut bacteria, gut health and the role resistant starch and fermented pre and pro biotics plays in the immune system and over all health, a new angle on just how malevolent GMO crop feed is to human health emerges.

At this point in time, when one gains a true understanding of how our modern, industrialized corporate food production system works, I can now confidently attribute it to the consumption of all three categories, for the entire feed industry is based off of manufacturing products from carbohydrates, proteins and fats...all derived from GMO plant crops. It's the GMO itself and how it affects the gut bacteria of not just we the sheeple, but any living organism that ingests it on a regular basis.

Most folks who discover the "Paleo diet" after years of ill health and weight management issues.  For the early adopters, while the low-carb paradigm has since been proven fallacious, nevertheless it does prove effective, because limiting carbohydrate intake means largely limiting your intake of GMO sourced feed.

But for most people today, it takes a health condition or weight management problems to get them to look more closely at exactly what they are eating. But I see an even bigger problem that is going to manifest in an even worse outcome in the next decade or so with regards to kids being raised from birth on GMO feed products.

Sadly today, I note that many parents in society today are feeding their children a steady diet of GMO processed feed products like cereal, chips, crackers, cookies, cakes, pastries, and all sorts of snack foods designed to make the kids stop whining and crying about their hunger for a few minutes.

Most folks never make the connection between their children's behavior and the snacks and breakfast cereals they are feeding them, and if they do, they invariably blame the sugar content. Sugar most certainly does have an effect...but that is only part of the story.

For instance, while the following article focuses on the possible link between autism and GMO feed, I found an interesting angle on the topic with regards to behavior of test animals regularly eating GMO feed:


When Dr. Huber visited an ongoing research project utilizing rats, he said those animals fed non-GMO feed were “as passive as can be. You can take them out. You can put them on your lap. Treat them almost like a pet cat.” Not so with the rats eating genetically engineered food: “You can hardly catch the rats that have received the GMO feed for a month and a half to two months,” he said. “They go off by themselves. They’re irritated. Crawl up the cage. . . . [They] don’t get along with each other.”

Farmers are reporting the same thing with pigs raised on GMO corn. According to Dr. Huber, a farmer told him that “his pigs just seem to be always irritated. They can’t get along with the other pigs.” Veterinarian Don Skow described similar odd behavior in the pigs of his client. “They would get cannibalistic. They would consume each other—ear biting and tail biting.” And when put in nurseries after weaning, he says, some “would get a condition like Alzheimer’s. They would lose the ability to know where the feed was. A lot of them would die.” Although many of these odd behaviors had been dismissed as normal stress responses for confined animals, when farmers switched to non-GMO feed and the problems went away, the real cause became obvious.

Similar antisocial patterns that Huber described were observed by a Dutch college student more than a decade ago when comparing mice fed GMO or non-GMO soy and corn. He wrote, “The mice fed on GM food seemed less active while in their cages. The differences in activity between the two cages grew as the experiment progressed.” The differences were most striking when he moved the mice to weigh them: “The mice from the GM cage were noticeably more distressed by the occurrence than the other mice. Many were running round and round the basket, scrabbling desperately in the sawdust, and even frantically jumping up the sides, something I’d never seen before. They were clearly more nervous. . . . For me this was the most disconcerting evidence that GM food is not quite normal.”[2]

Dr. Irina Ermakova, PhD, a senior researcher at the Russian Academy of Sciences, reported to the European Congress of Psychiatry in March 2006 that male rats fed GM soy exhibited anxiety and aggression, while those fed non-GMO soy did not [3]. Ermakova reported the same behavior in GM soy-fed female rats and their offspring in her study published in Ecosinform. The animals “attacked and bit each other and the worker."[4]

I know parents who are at wits end with their children's behavior. From my point of view, they love their children, but don't really like to spend time with them because of their incorrigible behavior. And they often remark at the stark contrast with my own progeny who is calm, well behaved and easy to babysit. Mind you, my kid is not "perfect." But the differences are readily apparent enough for many folks to comment. And they always tell me that I'm "lucky." At this point, I say it with full confidence that luck has nothing to do with it. 

Family who knew me as a kid are especially amazed at my offspring's demeanor, attitude and behavior, given how much of a little ADD/ADHD/ODD hell raiser troublemaker I was. My wife likes to take credit for her genes being the primary factor there, and there may be something to that. But I've seen it one too many times now, how little kids attitudes and behavior changes for the worse, sometimes in mere minutes after eating or drinking GMO-based junk feed.

When I try to suggest that maybe parents should feed their kids nutritious, home-cooked food instead of eating processed feed, they all say the same thing - there's no time for that. Everyone has got to fight traffic jams to get to school and work, so it's coffee for the adults, and breakfast cereal and snack foods while riding in the car. Then the kids get their GMO-based feed from their school vending machines, nearby convenience stores and the cafeterias. By the time working parents and school kids are home in the evening, everyone is too tired to cook, so they eat fast food or restaurant take out. It's no exaggeration to say that for many folks in our Brave New World Order, when it comes to their diet, it's all GMO, all the time.

Having read the product labels and researched the brands of much of the "kid snacks" many parents are feeding their kids (not to mention the regularity of eating fast food meals,) everything they eat is inevitably sourced from one of these 6 major corporate feed brands, who are also the primary backers for funding the opposition to several mandatory GMO-labeling initiatives that got voted on earlier this month in the mid-term elections of several States. They spent millions to fund propaganda to prevent them from having to label their GMO feed accordingly. 

Here are 6 huge conglomerates aiming to ruin your right to know what is in your food. 
1. Pepsi-Co (Including Frito-Lay and Doritos)

This behemoth has hardly been touched by consumer frustration with GMOs, even it is just as guilty as many other companies when it comes to food secrets. This is also the company who had to settle a $9 million class-action lawsuit over Naked Juice false advertising – claiming the products were ‘all natural’ and ‘100% juice’ when they are actually full of GMOs. Pepsi-Co was also revealed as one of the big spenders behind the anti-labeling campaigns illegally filtered through the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association. The company topped the list with a $1,620,899 donation to keep you in the dark about GMOs.
2. Kellogg’s
This company is downright shady. Kellogg’s company recently paid $5 million to settle a class-action lawsuit for falsely labeling Kashi products as “All Natural” or “Nothing Artificial.” They have also contributed a total of $1.6 million to defeat GMO labeling initiatives. In a consumer lab test, it was also found that Kellogg’s uses 100% GMO corn in several of their breakfast cereals and other products. Kashi products even made it onto the Non-GMO project’s list of safe foods, but they aren’t safe at all
3. General Mills

GM says: “We don’t use genetically modified ingredients in original Cheerios. Our principal ingredient has always been whole grain oats – and there are no GMO oats. We use a small amount of corn starch in cooking, and just one gram of sugar per serving for taste. But our corn starch comes from non-GMO corn, and we use only non-GMO pure cane sugar.”

This is only in one type of cereal they sell, though. Only two percent of the company’s shareholders favor a complete GMO ban. GM’s CEO says, he “sees no reason within the United States to bar ingredients grown from biotech crops.”

4. Nestle/Gerber Co

This company puts GMOs in baby food. Need I say more? The company removed GMOs from baby formulas in South Africa after public pressure forced them to, but it continues to put them in American-sold versions. Formulas like Good Start and others contain GM soybean oil, GM soy lecithin, and GM maltodextrin, as well as corn syrup derived from GM crops. Along with Pepsi-Co and Coca-Cola, the company spent over $1 million to defeat GMO labeling in Washington, and more to defeat labeling in Oregon.

5. Hershey’s

Just how much will you like that chocolate bar after finding out that Hershey’s donated $800,000 to defeat California’s Prop 37 and Washington’s I-522, and another $500,000 to defeat this year’s initiatives in Oregon and Colorado? The company has only one organic brand—Dagoba. Time for a boycott? After all, there are hundreds of non-GMO fair-trade chocolate makers out there. Try some of these non-GMO sweets instead.

6. Coca-Cola

This soda empire has contributed more than $1.5 million to keep your teeth rotting from consuming their GMO-filled sodas. They also utilize high fructose corn syrup that is almost entirely GMO-corn derived. Here are other sodas that contain GMOs, too.

I know of kids for whom it seems their entire diet is based on the products of these corporate GMO feed conglomerates. While the article I posted urges a boycott of the products of these corporations, I urge parents to boycott these products for your kids health, your peace of mind, and your sanity in trying to simply raise them.
