Two Palestinian boys, murdered by the Israeli military
Dead women, dead children, dead babies. Limbs missing, brains missing, guts spilled out on the floor. It’s impossible to put a positive spin on those kinds of images, unless you’re Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Two days ago, Bibi sought to explain why, in the space of a few hours, Israeli soldiers, under his orders, had massacred 63 people, including 17 children, in the Shuja’iya neighborhood to the east of Gaza City. He said:
“We have to protect ourselves. We try to target the rocketeers, we do. And all civilian casualties are not intended by us but actually intended by Hamas who want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can because somebody said they use telegenically dead Palestinians for the cause. They want the more dead the better.”

A grand conspiracy to poison the food supply? Not really.
“Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character the authorities consider desirable.”
~ Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society.
Anyone who has taken even a cursory look at what passes for human food these days can’t but conclude that it is literally unfit to eat. Aspartame, BPA, fluoride, MSG, preservatives, cloned or irradiated meats, factory farming, GMOs, artificial colors, artificial flavors, nanoparticles – the list of franken-foods that we are asked to happily shove down our throats is ever-expanding and ever-more horrifying. It seems every day there’s a different news story about how our food supply is being perverted in ways that take us further and further away from what actually nourishes our bodies, and therefore ever further from being able to think, move and generally function as we should.
One would be forgiven, therefore, for seeing some sort of agenda behind this perversion of our food. How else can we explain the corruption of the most essential ingredient for mental, emotional and physical health, if not by positing a grand conscious conspiracy on the part of the ‘elite’ to control the global population? A population that isn’t able to think and do, isn’t able to rebel, right? Surely a population that is addicted to food additives – and even addictive natural foods that alter our perceptions, like gluten, casein and sugar, and make us dependent on these foods – is a population that is easily molded to the machinations of a ruling class.

Daisy Coleman: victim of America’s culture of psychopathy
One of the most compelling non-fiction books I have ever read is ‘In Broad Daylight‘ by Harry N. MacLean, a true account of the life and death of Ken Rex McElroy, a thief, conman and all round deplorable excuse for a human being from Skidmore, Nodaway County, Missouri USA.
In vivid and shocking detail, MacLean exposes the truly psychopathic nature of McElroy as he intimidated, terrorised and abused his wives and children and the local population over a period of several years. Justice was a long time coming as McEIroy repeatedly thwarted attempts by the local police to catch him in the act, and used the legal system to get away with his egregious behavior. Eventually, after McEIroy shot a local store owner, the townspeople were galvanized to take the law into their own hands, and McEIroy was shot dead ‘in broad daylight’ on a street in Skidmore as he sat in his truck. No one was ever charged with his murder. Few, if any, mourned passing.
I was reminded of Ken McEIroy’s story recently because the residents of a town in the same Nodaway County Missouri (and not far from Skidmore) have been in the news.
In January 2012, 14-year-old Daisy Coleman and a 13-year-old girl friend sneaked out of Daisy’s house in Maryville, Nodaway county, at around 1am and met up with a couple of ‘jocks’ from their local high school. One of the ‘jocks’ Matthew Barnett and a friend drove Daisy and her friend to Barnett’s house. Daisy was given a tall glass of clear alcohol that the boys called the “bitch cup”, after that, she remembers nothing until a few hours later when, in a state of near hypothermia her mother, Melinda, found her scratching at the door of her house. It was while Melinda was helping Daisy to bathe that she saw the redness around her daughter’s genitalia and buttocks. It hurt, Daisy said, when her mother asked about it. Then Daisy began crying.

Thomas Sheridan: New Age Grifter, Internet Troll, Con Artist?
Compared to, say, ten years ago, a lot of people today are aware of and talking about psychopaths. On the one hand this is encouraging, but on the other, it’s a little troubling. It is heartening to see awareness of psychopathy breach the mainstream frequency fence here and there, but the signal-to-noise ratio, as with all knowledge relevant to the growth and survival of decent human beings, remains high on the ‘noise’ side. We see ridiculous studies in the news portraying psychopaths as curable and articles making the rounds about how not having a Facebook account may indicate that someone is a psychopath. We’ve also seen Twitter being touted as a tool for ‘spotting psychopaths’ and, just today, news that the US justice system is considering acceptance of biological evidence that someone is a genetic psychopath in court with a view to using it to mitigate the sentences of criminal offenders. The reasoning being that psychopaths can’t help being psychopaths, that they lack free will and therefore they bear diminished responsibility for their crimes.
Well, yeah, that’s exactly why they need to be held under lock and key permanently.

The people behind this campaign are MASSIVELY misguided. Or it’s a CIA-sponsored psy-ops.
Take for example the fact that one of the 12 ‘policy makers’ (US politicians) that they are targeting to help them ensure Joseph Kony is arrested is George ‘Dubya’ Bush. The puppet president who presided over the murder of 1.5 million Iraqi civilians. And we’re all meant to believe that people like him are going to care about the plight of Ugandan children? Kony is Bush’s ideological brother for god’s sake.
Other than their complete ignorance of the fact that the US political elite is populated by the world’s worst war criminals, the makers of this video are also massively ignorant of the truth about WHY Uganda, and many other African nations, are subjected to the brutal excesses of war lords and have been for so many decades.
