It’s very hard, very challenging to get people to talk about these big, aching issues of our times: Medical fraud, vaccination, pollution, pesticides, fake pandemics, government malfeasance, corruption, and control… People love sci-fi movies and tv shows in which the world is going to shite: Batman, X-files, Hunger Games – but when it comes to [...]

by Liam Scheff I always enjoy it when the culture becomes self-righteously vexed, because it lets us see what a bunch of cunts we all really are. The Onion called a young actress a ‘cunt’ in an online thread, and then apologized. The response has been the usual hailstorm or self-righteous recrimination. So, for the [...]
The Conspiracy Realist versus Conspiracy Theorists! It’s a hot time on the PsoNick Aitchison show (Type 1 Radio Lounge) out of sunny Brighton, England battling out the Judy Woods concept of 9/11.

by Liam Scheff Do you stop yourself from writing complete, unabbreviated words, even when using a full-sized keyboard? If so, you may be unintentionally making yourself less intelligent.

Will “Cat” Be the New “Turkey?” By Amanda Arju for LiamScheff.com Tues 20 Nov 2012 With the epidemic of bird flu causing turkey farmers to burn their flocks and the problem of toxicity from antibiotic injections and related tumor-growth, this may be the worst turkey season in fifty years. Recent exposés of turkey farms aren’t [...]
A short treatise on what is right and wrong with some aspects of the current “paleo/primal” and Sally Fallon (anti-soy) movements. I’ve done this in two languages, so those who eat a great deal of pork and beef, and those who don’t can both follow along. In three parts. First, for the boeuf crowd: 1. [...]
Yesterday I was attacked by… Weston Pricers! Oh, it wasn’t that bad – just an FBI social network blow-up; but it’s happened so many times, I think I need to be public about it.

Erection 2012. I toldja. It’s a game. The make-believe “dems” felt that they had to tolerate GWB for 8 years – him, a nut, a criminal, not fit to be dog catcher… And so the elites hand it to the ‘dem’ candidate (a real Manchurian candidate, to be sure) for 8 years. And so it [...]

Texas Governor, and Bilderberg ‘chosen one’ Rick Perry loves Gardasil, but “hates cancer,” or so he said in the last Republican debate.

The model continues [...]

The most disturbing and bravest book I’ve seen in a long, long time is this one: I can’t believe the candor, or the excess, and the lack of pride or self-aggrandizement in the telling. It’s the American Dream, the California Dream, the dream of “liberation,” but it’s no fantasy. It’s a plain horror, lived in [...]

It’s historic, and I congratulate, and embrace my finally multi-cultural-to-the-top nation. (If “Harvard” equals “multicultural). But, whatever, I get it, and wish the dude well.

Israel, although I support a democratic and protected Jewish state, I do not support the invasion and bombing of Palestine.

The contentious, much reviled Reverend Jeremiah Wright is interviewed by PBS’s only good man, Bill Moyers.

Jack goes on the record about sex, sex and sex in in this month’s Rolling Stone interview: Interviewer Erik Hedegaard: ”[W]hen the AIDS crisis started, he [Nicholson] tried wearing condoms, but they prevented him from feeling the “full catasrophe” of the sex act, so he went to a doctor, who told him not to worry [...]

I’m becoming convinced that history will record the causes of the fall of the American Empire the way that Edward Gibbon records the fall of Rome. So I thought as I left Best Buy today…No, really. But briefly, back to Rome and its fall: For it, Gibbon blames Christianity (at least in part – and [...]
Proposition: AIDS is a Land Grab, A Brand Name, and Every Disease in the Poor World. True or False…and why do you say so?
No, I’m not talking about Condit, Clinton, Kennedy, Jefferson, Cleveland or Harding. Not them, but those who inspired them. Here are some historical notes on the perversions of the leaders of Rome; truly an inspiration to our folks in Washington (All quotes from Suetonius’ The Twelve Caesars): The emperor Otho (A.D. 69) – The first [...]
Notes from the beginning of one Empire (from the end of another). From Suetonius’ The Twelve Emperors: “Aware that the City was architecturally unworth of her position as capital of the Roman Empire, besides being vulnerable to fire and river floods, Augustus [the first Emperor of Rome,] so improved her appearance that he could justifiably [...]
Currently Reading: Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus The 12 Emperors. Julius Caesar1 (grabs the crown) Augustus (Octavian)1 (catches it) Tiberius (dirty old man) Gaius Caligula (loves horses) Claudius (a nicer fella) Nero (not so nice) Galba (short and brutish — moiduhd!)

A few thoughts on African loss of life (and eugenics), for those for whom history began before 1979. We’re told that Africa has an AIDS problem. I used to think this was so. But after copious reading research and discussion, I am more than fairly convinced that Africa has a number of severe problems that [...]
Lords of Science, Convince Me that (Gore’s) Global Warming isn’t just another Narcissistic Leftist Fantasy… Oh, before you get your hackles up! Yes, I’m sure that things are cooler and warmer and wetter and drier, zone to zone, in parts of the world. Sure I’m sure that the black smoke billowing from sooty brick pipettes [...]

The culture that brings people to America is the culture that’s destroying America; the culture of now-cheaper-faster and everything-must-go. Not America the civil society; not America the grand democratic experiment. Yes, I know, only a great many of the protesters were/are illegal. Tens to hundreds of thousands of people in major cities, taking to the [...]
