PJTV – Bill Whittle – The Narrative – Political Correctness

What exactly is Political Correctness?

What is Critical Theory?

Why do feminists attack European/Christian/Jewish misogyny, but no other form?

Why is the American brief history of Slavery the only form condemned by modern inteligentsia?

I have written a little about this, and the one and Only CodeSlinger has not only widely commented on the topic, but also guest-posted ‘What is Cultural Marxism’.

If you prefer the answers in a video format, here is a very accessible summary (saying much of what CodeSlinger’s post several years ago explained) by PJ Media’s Bill Whittle:

American Academy of Pediatrics attacks raw milk

Surprise, surprise:  yet another enemy of real food attacks the traditional diet…

What is interesting in this article (and makes it worth reading) is this bit:

In 2009, former editor–in–chief of the New England Journal of Medicine Marcia Angell admitted that the “evidence-based” studies published in her former publication and most other “scientific” journals are totally unreliable:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

In her bombshell article, Drug Companies and Doctors: A Story of Corruption, she documents how doctors and scientists are bought and paid for by Big Pharma.

“Clinical trials are also biased through designs for research that are chosen to yield favorable results for sponsors,” she writes.

Yet more evidence pouring in that ‘peer-review’ is more of a ‘pal-review’…

For a deeply insightful commentary on the state of science today, see CodeSlinger’s comment here.

Having your baby riped out against your will

I think I’d go mad!!!

OK – I am uber-maternal, my ‘mothering instinct’ engaged to more than two standard deviations from the mean…

In other words, if you will let me, I will ‘mother’ you!!!

I gave up everything – from my business to some incredibly lucrative opportunities – to stay at home and be my kids’ mom.  Just because they wanted me to:  even knowing it will deprive them of video-games and expensive holidays, y kids said they’d rather have me income-less and home, available for them.  And, to me, this is the highest compliment my kids could ever pay me and the greatest indulgence my husband could ever grant me!

So, I cannot possibly imagine how this woman felt:  she had a panic attack (and, during my pregnancy with my first son, I suffered panic attacks during the last trimester, so I can relate…but they were just panic attacks caused by hormonal surges and nothing deeper than that!!!), somebody called emergency ‘to help her’ – and she got taken into a ‘psychiatric hospital’, involuntarily committed, sedated and, without her permission or even knowledge, her baby was removed via a C-section and even though she is fine now, the baby is up for adoption!!!

All I have to say to this is:  Britain – not even once!!!

Chris Schafer: NDP’s Drunk Driving Bill sets dangerous precedent

General warrants, anyone?

This does not even address the problems inherent in breathalyzer tests.

  • the sample cannot be kept, and therefore cannot be independently analyzed by a person in their own defense, should they seek to do so
  • every time a breath sample with alcohol in it is analyzed by the breathalyzer, some amount of the alcohol will adhere to the sensors:  thus, after a large umber of samples, the instrument will give higher readings (this is a known problem and something the manufacturers inform their customers about:  in order to get accurate readings, the instruments need to be taken apart, cleaned and re-calibrated regularly…yet this seldom occurs in reality)
  • refusing to take a roadside breathalyzer test is accepted in court as admission of intoxication!!!

In other words, if we refuse to submit to a test with an instrument we know is likely to give an artificially high reading and against which there is no defense (as the analyzed sample cannot be retained for more accurate re-testing), we are automatically deemed guilty.

Please, don’t get me wrong:  I do not advocate drunk driving.  As a matter of fact, I will not drive after having had any alcohol – and will abstain from drinking alcohol if I expect to be driving.  Even if I were well under the legal limit, if I were to get into an accident and harmed someone, knowing my reflexes might have been impaired by my irresponsible consumption of alcohol, I would have a hard time living with myself.  So, I always drive sober!

In other words, the inaccurate readings of the breathalysers are not likely to ever affect me in the least and I truly ‘have nothing to hide’ – as the video stresses!  It is not about ‘hiding something’ – it is about the principle involved!!!

How can so many of our ‘best and brightest’ be so dense?

FOX NEWS: Security, Trust and ObamaCare

OK, this story is interesting, or I would not have blogged it.

But, it is rather obvious:  Obamacare was clearly going to be an epic disaster from the get-go.  Governments do not give good ‘customer service’ because they can force us to submit to their wishes by the use of force – on which they have given themselves a monopoly (and, to ensure they keep it, they keep trying to disarm and infantilize us in oh so many ways)…

And, of course, there are many voices saying that it was designed to fail in the first place.  Sorry, that is another rant.

However, I did find something very interesting on this video.  Specifically, it is the speech of Dr. Frederick Chang from Southern Methodist University, at about the 3:28 marker.  Not ‘speech by’, not what he says, but how he speaks.

Please, indulge me and give it a listen:

Is this not the voice of ‘Anonymous’?!?!?
