Mental Illness, Marijuana and Violence

Journalist challenges pot propaganda

April 2019 – In the midst of the movement to legalize marijuana use across America, a huge gap exists between what mental health professionals know and what the general public has been led to believe regarding the harmful effects of pot, according to a veteran journalist and author.

In a January speech at Hillsdale College (hillsdale.edu) in Hillsdale, Michigan, Alex Berenson said that despite a 30-year “shrewd and expensive lobbying campaign” by pot advocates, the media, and some politicians, his research indicates that marijuana use is linked to mental illness and violence.

“Almost everything you think you know about the health effects of cannabis, almost everything advocates and the media have told you for a generation, is wrong,” Berenson said after his research of studies and interviews with psychiatrists and brain scientists.

Among the deceptions that Berenson’s research undermines:

  • Marijuana has many different uses. In reality, put works only in a few narrow conditions.
    Cannabis stems opioid use. In truth marijuana is too weak a painkiller for people who need opiates.
    Pot is safe and a potential treatment for psychiatric problems like depression. Berenson said, “… a mountain of peer-reviewed research in top medical journals shows that marijuana can cause or worsen severe mental illness, especially psychosis… .”

Berenson is the author of Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence.

The eagle was fitted with a camera and released from the top of the 2,715 foot Burj Khalifa building in Dubai.

The eagle had no idea where the tiny speck of land was that his handler was standing on or what it looked like among all of the other islands and buildings and people.

Somewhere along the way, the eagle actually picks out and recognizes his trainer from among all of the other objects, people, etc.

You can see him looking, looking, looking for his trainer, who is invisible to the human eye and the camera, and then once he spots him, he folds his wings and drops like a bullet straight to his trainer. when it goes into a power dive.

 

May we all have the eyes of an eagle.

Democratic Party Agenda: ‘Answer is Socialism’

 

Now, again, if this was just five random people picked off a college campus, I wouldn’t even be wasting my time with this. These people discussed here are the people determining the political agenda of the American left or the Democrat Party. They are funding all of these think tanks and nonprofits that are pushing this whole idea of apocalypse, and they are single-handedly creating this attitude of pessimistic defeatism in young people.

And they are succeeding in creating the notion that human beings, in their natural existence, are deeply flawed, and the only redeeming aspect is socialism. And yet these people want no part of the socialism. That’s for everybody else. They want to be able to escape all of it. While they’re probably writing checks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and trying to help Kamala Harris get elected and do whatever damage she can do, they’re trying to figure out a way to get to Mars to get away from all of this that they are single-handedly creating.

These are the people that invest in CNN. These are the people that tell MSNBC what to do. These are the people determining who is fit and unfit to post on Facebook and Twitter. This is truly, truly — I mean, it’s hilarious, and it’s funny and all of this, but I am just — I shouldn’t be surprised. I’m surprised.

I’m surprised people who are otherwise thought to be this wise can believe such absolute drivel. They have to have gotten it from somewhere. They’ve had to have been taught it from somewhere when they were younger and now they’re teaching it.

You know, I remember when the hip thing to do was to make fun of those crazy survivalists, and look what these guys have become.  These guys have become the survivalists!

These People Hate God

You know, I found a way, I thought of a way to make these guys change their minds and talk them out of it.  You know what it is? Say, “You know what?  I agree with you guys!  In fact, what you guys think is gonna happen is written about in the Bible.  It’s right there in Revelation.”

They would abandon this because they don’t want anything to do with religion, nothing to do with Christianity. Nothing whatsoever! You tell them that everything they believe is in the Bible and it’s right there in Revelation, and you read it to ’em? They’ll go find some other way to explain what they think. Oh, yeah, it’s incumbent. You gotta hate God. You gotta hate religion. “It’s so simple-minded. It’s so beneath these elites.” (sigh)  You know, most of these fat cat liberals are just hoping they’re the ones that the last of the socialists don’t kill.  But, I mean, these are the people writing and producing and funding all these television shows and movies that depict all of this.

Reality Check: Upward Mobility All Over the World

The irony here is that by every effective measure, life on earth for most humans has never been better. Worldwide poverty is at an all-time low, folks. Upward mobility all over the world. You can find pockets where these things are not true. But it’s undeniable. It’s been written about in several places. Life, human life is getting better. Life expectancy is expanding. Health care and health applications are getting better.

Life on earth has never been better than it is today. It’s gonna be better tomorrow than it was today. It’s gonna be better next year. But these people don’t believe this. They’re out of the Paul Ehrlich school, the guy that wrote back in the 1970s that by this time there wouldn’t be any humanity because overpopulation would have destroyed everything. And this guy is still a believed god to these people.

 

Tech Futurist Invited to Speak to Tech Gurus

So this story that I read that ran in the U.K. Guardian after originally running at some place called The Medium by Douglas Rushkoff, who’s a professor and a futurist, the headline: “How tech’s richest plan to save themselves after the apocalypse.” You know, that headline right there tells you a heck of a lot. The piece starts out this way.

“Last year, I got invited to a super-deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech to what I assumed would be a hundred or so investment bankers. It was by far the largest fee I had ever been offered for a talk – about half my annual professor’s salary – all to deliver some insight on the subject of ‘the future of technology.’

Crackpot Theory about Dystopian Future

The mental gymnastics required to think this kind of rotgut depends on one assumption. That assumption is that humans suck. So we either have to change humans or we have to get away from them forever. And that’s what these five guys interviewing this futurist wanted to know how to do.

These are the things of greatest concern to five super wealthy hedge fund tech guys paying a journalist a ton of money to come out and answer their questions. Which region of the planet will be less affected by the coming climate apocalypse, New Zealand or Alaska? They wanted to know where they should make plans to move once global warming destroys most everything. This is serious, folks. I know I’m a naturally funny guy. I’m not trying to be funny.

Next question: Is Google really building a home for the human brain of a man named Ray Kurzweil so that he will actually never die and we will always have access to his intelligence?

“The CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system and asked: ‘How do I maintain authority over my security force after,” this climate collapse? His concern was, okay, he’s got a bunker, he’s gonna put his family in there and he’s gonna have a security force. He wanted to know how he maintains authority over them. In abject panic with every man out for himself, how does he maintain the boss relationship? And they wanted to know how are they gonna pay these servants if there isn’t any money? Because they all think a full-fledged economic collapse is coming, along with the climate collapse that’s gonna cause the end of the earth. And they’re serious!

And they refer to this as The Event, capital T, capital E. It was their euphemism for the environmental collapse, the social unrest, the nuclear explosion, the unstoppable virus, or the Mr. Robot hack that takes everything down. In other words, these five guys were dead serious wanting answers to what they should do when humanity destroys the earth.

These guys are obviously crackpots! They are obviously wackos. They obviously believe this stuff, and they are among the wealthiest people in the world. They are eccentrically wealthy. And they invest in tech companies, and they direct tech companies in how software is written and so forth. This is not just a bunch of Looney Toon leftists on campus that believe this stuff. But hang on. It gets even better.

That single question occupied them for an hour, The Event, the end of the earth brought on by humanity. These guys discussed for an hour not the likelihood, but the guarantee that humanity, being human is going to destroy the earth.

Science Facts: California Wildfires worsened by Bad Environmental Policy

Science Facts:

California Wildfires worsened by Bad Environmental Policy

 Bad Environmental Laws Make California Wildfires Worse

Charlie Spiering

President Donald Trump asserted Sunday that California’s environmental laws on water use were making the wildfires worse.

“California wildfires are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren’t allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “It is being diverted into the Pacific Ocean.”

Trump urged California to clear forests (presumably, of dead trees) to help stop the wildfires from spreading.

“Must also tree clear to stop fire spreading!” he wrote.

Trump commented on the issue after many critics blamed the fires primarily on global warming.

Trump: Bad Environmental Laws Make California Wildfires Worse…

 

Heritage Foundation Report:

History of Bad Environmental Policy

Big Government and Environmentalists Are Causing Massive Fires in Western States

Commentary By

Jarrett Stepman

Editor’s Note: In response to the deadly Carr Fire in Northern California, many in the media have advanced the narrative that it is the result of climate change. However, this misses the ongoing problem of poor forest management which has led to larger fires throughout the West. The following story was published in the wake of the devastating Tubbs Fire.

The massive fires that took the lives of over 40 people in California were not the only devastating wildfires as of late.

Utah, Montana, and other states have been hit by destructive infernos that have left death and widespread property damage in their wake.

Forest fires—what firefighters call wildland fires—are undoubtedly a part of nature and can never be stopped entirely, but the measurable uptick in extraordinarily large fires is a trend that is causing intolerable amounts of damage.

Forest management policy has become calcified and centralized over the last half century, but there are some serious ideas that can turn things around.

Since the 1970s, the number of forest fires in the United States has remained fairly constant, but there’s been a significant uptick in the size of these blazes. The average wildfire is now twice the size of fires of 40 years ago.

Some have tried to pin the blame on climate change, but as a 2015 Reason Foundation study noted, climatic factors like higher temperatures and increased droughts “cannot explain the pattern of fires observed over the past century.”

“While it is possible that climate change has played a role in increasing the size of fires, the primary cause seems to be forest management practices, which have changed several times over the course of the past 200 years,” the study said.

The United States Forest Service, which manages most of America’s wilderness, made some big changes in the 1970s that many say have led to our modern predicament.

The selective clearing of forests, in which only certain trees are removed, had been highly successful in the past. But perverse incentives for the agency made clear-cutting, or uniformly chopping down trees, more common in the 1950s. This led to a backlash of lawsuits, environmentalist attacks, and unfortunately, more centralization in Washington for the Forest Service.

“In 1976 Congress tried to resolve the debate by instituting a comprehensive forest planning process,” wrote Randal O’Toole, a policy analyst at the Cato Institute. “The resulting plans proved to be a costly mistake: The agency spent more than a billion dollars planning the national forests, but the plans were often based on fabricated data, and they did not resolve any debates.”

Nearly a half century of bureaucratic centralization and environmentalist initiatives have left forests overgrown, vulnerable to fire, and dangerous to individual property owners and the economies of many states.

Science Facts: Study of Genetics Supports Biblical Worldview of Creation versus Evolution Theory; Media Bias Ignores

Science Facts:

Study of Genetics Supports Biblical Worldview of Creation versus Evolution Theory; Media Bias Ignores

There is a God. Evolution cannot explain Creation. A cat cannot  build a hospital and never will. Nor can a dolphin. Humanity is exceptional. And we each only get one life. Most people take it for granted. What is Life? How does it happen? Where does it come from? The answer is God .~Rush Limbaugh

Media silent on genetic study defying evolution

Research found 90% of animal species appeared at same time as humans

When a scientific study was published showing that 90 percent of animals appeared on Earth at the same time as humans, you could almost hear the proverbial pin drop in the popular press, academia and evolutionary scientific community.

That was in May when Mark Stoeckle from the Rockefeller University in New York and David Thaler at the University of Basel in Switzerland, both evolutionary scientists, published in the Journal of Human Evolution the results of their meticulous and sweeping genetic study of the DNA barcodes of more than 100,000 animal species and humans showing man and all the animals seem to have sprung to life spontaneously no more than 200,000 years ago.

Media Bias Ignores Findings

Since then, not one major news agency has reported the shocking findings. There has not been any significant attempt at refutation of the research by the evolutionary scientific community. There are no reports of an uproar in the science academy.

“This conclusion is very surprising, and I fought against it as hard as I could,” researcher and co-author Thaler told one interviewer.

The first report on the study came in Phys.org, which concluded the findings are “sure to jostle, if not overturn, more than one settled idea about how evolution unfolds.” Yet, even that report buried the lead under the headline: “Sweeping gene survey reveals new facets of evolution.”

Do Large Populations Diversify Over Time? NO.

That report focused on the still disquieting but, perhaps, less disturbing aspect of the study that counters the evolutionary assumption “that species with large, far-flung populations – think ants, rats, humans – will become more genetically diverse over time.” The report then asked the lead author of the study: “But is that true?”

“The answer is no,” said Stoeckle.

The study was most ambitious and sweeping study by evolutionary biologists on the historic changes in animal and human DNA barcodes. It found not that humans and animals have been around on Earth for millions of years, but, rather, less than 200,000 years – and that they all seem to have appeared at once, a clear refutation of the theory of evolution over vast eons of time.

How extensive and time-consuming was the study?

The researchers examined some 5 million gene snapshots, or DNA barcodes, collected from 100,000 animal species by hundreds of researchers around the world and deposited in the U.S. government-run GenBank database.

However, some anti-evolutionary voices are emerging eager to seize on the findings.

Nathaniel Jeanson, who holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University in cell and developmental biology and the author of the book “Replacing Darwin,” says, “There’s a great danger to the evolutionary model in this study in ways they don’t quite realize yet.”

He notes, of course, the fact that many species formed contemporaneously with modern human beings. But he adds that data strongly suggests that the mitochondrial DNA clocks of modern humans “formed within the last 6,000 years.” That would be a confirmation of the literal Genesis account of Creation. He also asserts, after studying the data released in the report that suggests many, if not most, of the species “formed within the last 6,000 years.”

Evolutionists Fail to  Explain the Science Facts

That the authors of the study are perplexed, if not disappointed, by their own research results is affirmed by a paper they collaborated on in 2014 that pointed to the possibility of “a single global population crash – “almost a Noah’s Ark hypothesis,” they wrote dismissively. “This appears unlikely.” Instead, they explained their findings thusly: “Perhaps long-term climate cycles might cause widespread periodic bottlenecks.”

The Phys.org report did eventually get around to what it characterized as perhaps “the study’s most startling result … that nine out of 10 species on Earth today, including humans, came into being 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.”

“How does one explain the fact that 90 percent of animal life, genetically speaking, is roughly the same age?” posed the report. “Was there some catastrophic event 200,000 years ago that nearly wiped the slate clean?”

For his part, Ken Ham, founder and president of Answers in Genesis, pulls no punches, saying the research affirms what Scripture says about life’s origins. Creationists believe the catastrophic event was the flood.

“Evolution doesn’t expect the vast majority of our species to have arrived at the same time, nor does it expect species to have these clear genetic boundaries,” he said. “But this is what we’d expect in a biblical worldview – indeed it’s what creationists have been saying all along, although their timeframe of 100,000 – 200,000 years is inflated, due to evolutionary assumptions.”

Neither Stoeckle nor Thaler seem ready to abandon their faith in evolution.

For his part, Stoeckle said about the unexpected results of his study: “The simplest interpretation is that life is always evolving. It is more likely that – at all times in evolution – the animals alive at that point arose relatively recently.”

No “Missing Link”

In other words, in the evolutionary view, a species only lasts a certain amount of time before it either evolves into something else or goes extinct. But even that notion is refuted by the data collected in the study – that species have very clear genetic boundaries, and there’s nothing much in between, not much room for “missing links.”
“If individuals are stars, then species are galaxies,” said Thaler. “They are compact clusters in the vastness of empty sequence space.”

The absence of “in-between” species is something that also perplexed Darwin, he said.

Media Bias Twists Report

Here’s how some of the very few news organizations that covered the study buried the sensational, man-bites-dog news hook even in their headline treatments:

  • “Genetic differences between people across the world are no greater than differences between pigeons” – The U.K. Independent
  • “What can ‘DNA barcodes’ tell us about evolution and ourselves? – Real Clear Science

Most of the major media did not report at all on the study.

Here’s How Wrong Past Predictions on Climate Change Have Been

Walter E. Williams

Daily Signal, Heritage Foundation

Each year, Earth Day is accompanied by predictions of doom.

Let’s take a look at past predictions to determine just how much confidence we can have in today’s environmentalists’ predictions.

Earth Day  Predictions in 1970: Death of 100-200 Million People

In 1970, when Earth Day was conceived, the late George Wald, a Nobel laureate biology professor at Harvard University, predicted, “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”

Also in 1970, Paul Ehrlich, a Stanford University biologist and best-selling author of “The Population Bomb,” declared that the world’s population would soon outstrip food supplies.

In an article for The Progressive, he predicted, “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next 10 years.”

He gave this warning in 1969 to Britain’s Institute of Biology: “If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.”

On the first Earth Day, Ehrlich warned, “In 10 years, all important animal life in the sea will be extinct.”

Despite such predictions, Ehrlich has won no fewer than 16 awards, including the 1990 Crafoord Prize, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences’ highest award.

1975: New Ice Age Predicted

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection.com for his great cartoon

In International Wildlife (July 1975), Nigel Calder warned, “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind.”

In Science News (1975), C.C. Wallen of the World Meteorological Organization is reported as saying, “The cooling since 1940 has been large enough and consistent enough that it will not soon be reversed.”

In 1970, ecologist Kenneth Watt told a Swarthmore College audience:

The world has been chilling sharply for about 20 years. If present trends continue, the world will be about 4 degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990 but 11 degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.

2000: Earth will burn up from Global Warming

In 2000, climate researcher David Viner told The Independent, a British newspaper, that within “a few years,” snowfall would become “a very rare and exciting event” in Britain. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said. “Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past.”

In the following years, the U.K. saw some of its largest snowfalls and lowest temperatures since records started being kept in 1914.

Extinction of Animal Life

Also in 1970, Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., wrote in Look magazine: “Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian (Institution), believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”

” Gold and Silver to Disappear”

Scientist Harrison Brown published a chart in Scientific American that year estimating that mankind would run out of copper shortly after 2000. Lead, zinc, tin, gold, and silver were to disappear before 1990.

Erroneous predictions didn’t start with Earth Day.

” Oil and Natural Gas Depleted”

In 1939, the U.S. Department of the Interior said American oil supplies would last for only another 13 years. In 1949, the secretary of the interior said the end of U.S. oil supplies was in sight.

Having learned nothing from its earlier erroneous claims, in 1974 the U.S. Geological Survey said the U.S. had only a 10-year supply of natural gas.

The fact of the matter, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, is that as of 2014, we had 2.47 quadrillion cubic feet of natural gas, which should last about a century.

Dishonesty—the End Justifies the Means

Hoodwinking Americans is part of the environmentalist agenda. Environmental activist Stephen Schneider told Discover magazine in 1989:

We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. … Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.

In 1988, then-Sen. Timothy Wirth, D-Colo., said: “We’ve got to … try to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong … we will be doing the right thing anyway in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”

Americans have paid a steep price for buying into environmental deception and lies.

Global Warming Hoax has Origin in Nazi Germany

Revealed – How Renewables and the Global Warming Industry Are Literally Hitler

James Delingpole

Nazi vision of windmill

Have you ever wondered what kind of sadistic, totalitarian mentality you might need to want to carpet the countryside with bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco crucifixes in order to save the planet from an imaginary problem?

This book, unearthed by David Archibald at American Thinker, offers a clue: Unfortunately, Archibald reports, the scheme foundered for practical reasons. Just one of these towers would have required 27,500 tons of steel – “approaching the amount used in the Scharnhorst.” So the Germans put their renewable energy drive on hold in 1936. It was, of course, revived five decades later in their Energiewende – an ingenious scheme to replace fossil fuels with energy powered by wind and the sun in which Germany is so abundant sometimes for as many as two or three days each year.

But Nazi Germany’s contributions to the modern climate change industry did not stop with gigantic wind turbines. No. One of the earliest proponents of man-made global warming theory was none other than the Luftwaffe High Command’s chief meteorologist Hermann Flohn.

To be fair, some of us have been well aware for quite some time of the green movement’s connections with Nazi Germany: Himmler’s embrace of organic food; Hitler’s partial vegetarianism; Goering threatening to send animal abusers to the death camps; agricultural minister Richard Darre’s obsession with “Blood and Soil”; the ban on smoking on public transport; the Reich Nature Protection Law; etc. (I wrote about this in Watermelons)

Who the Real Nazis Are

After all, people on the conservative/skeptical side of the argument are far too often being accused by ignorant leftists of being literally Hitler. And I do think it’s important, every now and again, to remind these historical illiterates who the real Nazis are.

Study blows ‘greenhouse theory out of the water’

Alex Newman

‘All observed climatic changes have natural causes completely outside of human control’

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection.com for his great cartoon

BOZEMAN, Mont. – A new scientific paper contends the entire foundation of the man-made global-warming theory – the assumption that greenhouse gases warm the atmosphere by trapping heat – is wrong.

If confirmed, the study’s findings would crush the entire “climate change” movement to restrict CO2 emissions, the authors assert

Some experts contacted by WND criticized the paper, while others advised caution.

Still others suggested that the claimed discovery represents a massive leap forward in human understanding – a “new paradigm.”

The paper argues that concentrations of CO2 and other supposed “greenhouse gases” in the atmosphere have virtually no effect on the earth’s temperature.

They conclude the entire greenhouse gas theory is incorrect.

Instead, the earth’s “greenhouse” effect is a function of the sun and atmospheric pressure, which results from gravity and the mass of the atmosphere, rather than the amount of greenhouse gases such as CO2 and water vapor in the atmosphere.

The same is true for other planets and moons with a hard surface, the authors contend, pointing to the temperature and atmospheric data of various celestial bodies collected by NASA.

Salena Zito Reports from Coal Country

Jun 19, 2017

RUSH Limbaugh:

Coal country.

Well, it was announced last week that Trump had opened up essentially a new coal mine, for all intents and purposes. It was a new kind of coal mine. It was in coal country. It was gonna create new jobs that would pay 50 to a hundred thousand dollars a year.

It was ripped to shreds by the media and the climate change crowd. “This is living in the past. Coal is filthy, it’s dirty.” And it turns out that this coal plant is not even gonna be used for energy. This coal is gonna be used in the manufacture of steel, and you’d be amazed at the number of things in your daily life that have steel in them that you can’t do without. But it’s not the kind of coal that’s gonna be used for energy.

And she found that these people think that what’s been reported about their industry and this particular mine that’s going to be opened up, they’re misinformed, they’re missing the boat on this. And they think they are just as legitimately a part of America as journalists are or anybody else is. They resent being laughed at and made fun of. They resent their industry being portrayed as something archaic and dangerous and polluting and an instrument of climate change and global warming.

She goes out and finds these people. And some of the things about this plant that she uncovered are fascinating. The coal from this mine is not going to be used for energy, as I say. Instead, it’s gonna be used for the production of steel for the next 15 years. I don’t know if you knew this or not. Coal is used to make 70% of the steel in the world today. Here’s a list of places it’s found.

It’s found in cars, bicycles. Oh, my, the health crowd loves bicycles. Bicycles are saving the planet. Bicycles are reducing our carbon footprint. Bicycles are part of the quest for good health. Steel is used to make them, meaning coal is necessary. Steel is used in many different areas of public transportation, which the climate change crowd, they also love public transportation. It’s so cool, it’s so chic. It’s like Europe, trains and buses, and it’s really neato. It’s so cool. And of course it gets you out of your filthy, ugly car, and it eliminates planet destruction, and it also puts everybody together and makes them all behave accordingly. Leftists love that.

Wind turbines. The wind turbines that are part of the wind industry, they’re all made with steel. You couldn’t make them without coal.

You think the climate change crowd knows this? Do you think they know that without coal, we wouldn’t have bicycles like we do? We wouldn’t have wind turbines. Medical devices are made with steel. Roads, bridges, appliances, even iPhones and computers all contain steel. This coal plant actually represents modernization. Not a wasteful step back into time.
