LIONEL PODCAST: Scientific Illiterates Yell the Loudest

This is MRT. Mitochondrial Replacement Therapy. And believe you me, the voices will rise in objection with nary a clue as to what this even envisages or implies. And that’s the theme of today’s discourse. It works like this: I don’t like you or the main proponent of an idea who’s been attached and tethered to an idea. Or I will refer to you as a Truther, Birther, Deather, Climate Change Denier and now a Vaxxer. Or anti-Vaxxer. Or I’ll dredge up Jenny McCarthy as an example of the lunacy of the idea. Funny, Bobby Kennedy Jr.’s a different story. Anyhoo. But that’s it; you’re a loon. Insane. And then you’ll meet the folks who opine loudly yet have no idea of what the science involves or the like. This goes back to the Scopes Trial in 1925, where people were up in arms over Darwinian Mechanics and evolution and natural selection despite knowing nothing of how it even works.

Be chary, Mary. You’re probably not a physician or immunologist or autism expert. But I am an expert in civil liberties and how they devolve. And, by the by, I addressed this very topic of MRT a year ago. See infra. Can you say prescient? Vatic? Pythonic? And relevant? Enjoy.

LIONEL PODCAST: Measles or Autism

Oh, really? How much say do you have over your children’s health? If you fear that vaccines cause autism, if you believe that certain drugs affect our child negatively, right or wrong, what power do you have? That’s the issue. Not Chris Christie or Rand Paul. Those aren’t the issues. The issue, as I explain herein, is your child. The issue has been personalized beyond all reason. The message is the same. The refrain never changes. The issue is whether you as a parent, who may believe that a vaccine as tested is dangerous and should be avoided, do you have the right to say no? I’m not a physician or an immunologist and have studied not autism and the like, but I will tell you anecdotally that virtually every parent I meet or know seems to have a child on psychmeds or who suffers from ADD, ADDHD or autism. I’m not exaggerating, this isn’t hyperbole, it’s true. And that in no wise means that vaccines are the reason, but as a parent aren’t you and should you be able to decide? Without being called a lunatic, that is.

LIONEL PODCAST: Anti-Vaxxers Are the New Crop of Hated Conspiracy Theorists

Argot. An anti-vaxxer is a derogatory slang term for an anti-vaccinationist or one who opposes vaccinations. They join the list of truthers, birthers, deathers and climate change deniers as the latest crop of paranoid, baseless, tinfoil hat conspiracy theory loons. It’s the latest attempt to demonize and ridicule an entire group and class of individuals.

This is the anti-vaxxer message. In a nutshell, this is their position. That kids are being forced to endure a host of untested, thimerosal and mercury-tainted poisons that cause or are linked to autism and a host of behavioral disorders. That it’s all a part of a grand new world order, globalist, UN-based, psychotic eugenic Malthusian nightmare to sterilize, castrate, lobotomize depopulate a sheeple society. Bill Gates is its master and your children are his slaves. And do you think that the autism pandemic is coincidental? Wake up! The sheer number and frequency of vaccines are unbelievable and if you can’t see that, you’re nuts. Medicine and pharmacology have made mistakes throughout history. can you say thalidomide? Lobotomies were once the rage. And must I remind you that Ignaz Semmelweis, the 19th century Hungarian physician, thought it peachy for doctors to wash their hands in obstetrical clinics. They thought he was a kook! Wake up!

The vaxxer message. Do you want polio and smallpox again? Fine. Ask the kid on the left what he thinks about vaccines. So if you don’t care to join the 21st century, then move to a desert island. There’s nothing wrong with vaccines and if there was, the government would stop it. What are you, some conspiracy theory lunatic? You think the CDC is a conspiracy? My pediatrician, whom I trust, knows what’s best for my kids and his kids and she wouldn’t suggest some poison for her own kids if here was a reasonable risk of harm. Vaccines should be mandatory. Period. No questions asked.

Enter Chris Christie. While in England, Double-C said “there has to be a balance and it depends on what the vaccine is, what the disease type is, and all the rest.” He added, “Not every vaccine is created equal and not every disease type is as great a public health threat as others.” Uh oh. He’s officially thrown down the gauntlet. And in the UK no less, he crucible of globalist groupthink. Wow. Sit back and watch the fireworks now.

This podcast. Herein I explain how the anti-vaxxers are immediately being marginalized and labeled as the newest crop of loons. Exhibit A: Jenny McCarthy. Remember you always attach someone who attracts derision to a cause you loathe. I describe the memes, the theories and what you should pay attention to to form your own opinion and worldview.

Why You Should Give a Damn About Greece and Syriza

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of Syriza

Who? This is Alexis Tsipras, the 40 year-old 186th Prime Minister of Greece since 26 January 2015, and the Leader of the Coalition of the Radical Left also known as Syriza since 2009.

Radical left?! Now, right away when many robotized and media lobotomized Americans hear not only “left” but “radical left” they react predictably patellar, in a hardwired obeisance and hypnotic reflex. The ardent right holds their noses, the professional left claps and bleats like a barking seal. Both seizing upon a morsel of data. A word, a code, a meme. And having not the faintest or foggiest idea why. It’s the script, the playbook. The directional messaging has always been the source of confounded interpretations. American global news referencing is nonexistent. And while I neither endorse nor declaim Syriza, I’m fascinated by what this means for the EU and austerity, in particular.

Well I never been to Spain but I kinda like the music. Gracias, Señor Axton. The anti-austerity movement fortified by Syriza is now seen in Spain’s Podemos (“We can”) movement. Somewhat reminiscent of Sí, se puede, used by that leftie rabble-rouser Cesar Chavez and his equally leftist, crypto-Commie UFW. Oh, yeah, and Barack Obama too. Ahem. Podemos, led by a ponytailed Pablo Iglesias, 36, the movement to reverse austerity and tackle corruption has struck a decisive chord.

Less than a week after Greece elected an aggressively anti-austerity government, the leaders of Spain’s own insurgent force, Podemos (We Can), urged supporters to take to the streets in a show of strength as it embarks on a tumultuous electoral campaign. “Tick tock, tick tock,” chanted thousands as they occupied the broad avenues of central Madrid, counting down to a year packed with municipal, regional and general elections. Just a year since its creation, Podemos has vaulted to the top of opinion polls, threatening to bring an end to the bipartisan political system that has governed Spain since the death of General Francisco Franco in 1975.

Pablo Iglesias of Podemos

Are you paying attention? No, what this means is something much deeper. A full frontal attack against globalist banksterism and asset-stripping financial terrorism. And that still won’t get folks’ attention. And mention austerity and you’ll get that blank and vapid and comatose look. Austerity is defined quaintly as “official actions taken by the government, during a period of adverse economic conditions, to reduce its budget deficit using a combination of spending cuts or tax rises.” Greek and Spanish austerity opponents would beg to differ and refer you instead to persistent unemployment, evictions and growing inequality and the contamination of systemic corruption. Pay attention. This is happening worldwide. And while we end to think of ourselves as being inoculated from worldwide calamity, we’re anything but. When Europe sneezes, we catch cold, as someone said.

Complexity is painful. Europe and the world and the EU in particular are beta tests for a new world configuration. Let me try to be clear(er). My friend, Webser Tarpley, makes this point and I want you to imagine anything like it being made or published in our MSM. Especially his reference to the “Troika of International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank/Bundesbank, and the Juncker-Moscovici European Commission.” And imagine the reference being sandwiched between the latest viral video of a duck playing the piano and Bruce Jenner’s sex change operation. Oh, I almost forgot, and The Stupid Bowl. And remember, anything with foreign names proves soporific. Unless, of course, it’s the latest man-made and manufactured terrorist group. And while we’re at it, RT has been exemplary in its coverage of the Greek elections. Truly superb. Now, as for Mr. Tarpley … .

The ability of Alexis Tsipras and Syriza to win an election and form a government within hours has stunned the Berlin neo-Brüning austerity clique dominated by the vindictive German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, Merkel’s grey eminence.

Tsipras has wisely formed a principled coalition with the conservative anti-austerity Independent Greeks of Panos Kammenos, who is now Defense Minister, showing that he is not a prisoner of the absurd left-right schema, and does not intend to let ethnocultural wedge issues block the immediate measures for economic recovery without which no problems can be solved. According to Athens political observer Michael Chiotinis, Tsipras would now be well advised to back another conservative, Kostas Karamanlis, for President of Greece — as another step towards a de facto national unity government to strengthen the hand of Athens in the coming clashes with the infamous Troika of International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank/Bundesbank, and the Juncker-Moscovici European Commission.

“If it’s not about American Sniper or Bruce Jenner or DeflateGate, I’m not interested.” I fully expect the following to be absolutely and completely missed in toto by the usual suspects but I love a challenge. What is so significant about Greece and Syriza is the following.

  • The movement involves a mass-traction economic policy. Not the vague platitudes and incoherent policy prattle of the hashtag activist dupes and dolts.
  • It’s seen as pro-worker, pro-labor and pro-infrastructure. Wow, how’s that for subversive?
  • It destroys completely the myth of the left-right paradigm and for that reason alone, sadly, will remain most cryptic and beyond the reach of many.
  • It doesn’t waste time with silly arguments about the pseudoscientific fraud of anthropogenic global warming and climate change which do more to harm the worker than anything can imagine.
  • It is not as one commentator suggested, the OWS of Greece. It’s anything but that. In fact, it’s the opposite. Antipodal.
  • It’s New Deal in spades. (When was the last time you heard that term used remotely favorably?)
  • It’s fundamentally anti-Malthusian.
  • It builds upon the notion of principled alliances.
  • It provides a firm focus on power, which (again), runs counter to the incoherent and synthetic argument of the hipster anarchist.
  • And you have two global charismatic leaders, 40 and 36 years old, respectively. While we keep rehashing and recirculating the same sorry, sallow faces.

This is know joke. Greece and Spain and anti-austerity measures and the like are not parlor talk for the Europhile or practitioner of global obscurantism. This is not to be dismissed as a rehash of the new world order argument. And, incidentally, why NWO mention inspires the eye-roll is beyond me. No, this is about a world depression resulting in large art from reckless deregulated and globalized financial speculation, especially the $1.5 quadrillion! world derivatives bubble. Greece and Spain are models, templates and indicia of a worldwide condition that you must be conversant with.

After, of course, you tackle Bruce Jenner’s transsexualism and download that “hilarious” viral video of that duck playing the piano.
