“Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?”

Who is this? If you’re interested, find out for yourself. Google the quote, dig. Find out, use your curiosity as a cudgel. Accept nothing as fact unless you verify it. Expand your worldview, open your eyes....

The perfect analogy. Detective Frank Drebin in The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988) is an imposter, an undercover cop pretending he’s a major league umpire and hoping no one catches on. He’s a cop in an area and venue he knows nothing of and about. But once he says the...

Now you see it, now you don’t. This may shock you, so, I trust you’re sitting down. Cashless societies stories have been missed altogether by this incredibly impuissant media, well, to be fair, the American mainstream media, which rank consistently as the most detached and disconnected...

Gawd bless this man. For this. Dr. Oz dared to discuss the toxicity of the biotech industry’s favorite pesticide “glyphosate” — a dangerous chemical that even the World Health Organization now admits likely causes cancer and the “Monsanto Mafia” was sicced on him. Haven’t you heard? He...

A concept you must understand. The gatekeeper. In my circles this word and term of art have significant meaning. It’s the concept of bottlenecking news and information and data or, better yet, the distraction and deflection of public awareness. Think rodeo clown: “Today in the USA, the...

“High-frequency traders, for example, introduce greater instability into our financial markets through arbitraging gimmicks that add no value to the economy.”

It’s not propaganda; it’s the truth. The laughable moment when it hits you: what’s the truth? When is the truth true and not skewed and varied and altered reality? And according to whom? Tell me the story of the Vietnam War — from the point of view of an NVA regular. Wait, that’s not the...

The Rubio version of Watergate.

All day I face the barren waste without the taste of water, cool water. Behold the flanking maneuver crafted by Jeb and his handler. Jeb and Marco are old buddies, having forged a weird bond through a ceremonial sword...

Why in the hell do we even bother teaching kids in the first place? Anatole France said that “[t]he whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.” Look how we destroy their spirit. In this simple...

The illusion. Look, he’s got a great policy on smoking dope. Big deal. Look back to Bill Buckley, Milton Friedman and George Schultz — arch-conservative paleocons — and they were for the legalization of all drugs before Rand could make a fist. He’s articulate, seemingly more in touch with...

Walter Scott is seen here being executed for having the unmitigated audacity to disrespect a cop who was going to arrest him by running away. Who knew that nonpayment of child support was a capital offense in South Carolina?

A cult is defined as a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object or a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing. Any questions?

A comparison. The mainstream media report on stories, detailing specific facts, and then ignore the skepticism that reading their stories would inspire! They don’t even follow up on facts they report. They ignore their own stories. Let that sink in as I provided this comparison.

The perfect word for perfect deception. That’s the truth. Bullshit, that is. All that you’re told is mendacious connivance. Period. Partly with the desire to confuse and distort but mostly out of laziness and intellectual torpor. No need to clarify or explain. No need to illuminate and...

This is not in any way a crime. Ashley Judd says that she intends to press charges against those who have been harassing her on Twitter with threats of sexual violence. Threats of sexual violence. I’m not too sure about that. Long-distance, ethereal “threats.” And I’m not being too...

Orwell simply had no idea. “The media is the right arm of anarchy,” thus spake Dan Brown. Can I hear an “Amen!”? They still enjoy cover from the hoary and anachronistic that they and we share concomitantly an interest in news proliferation. Accurate at that.
