Weather Underground bomber unmasked — as city schoolteacher

The Weather Underground's work...

The Weather Underground’s work…

NY Post: The “bomb guru” for the terrorist group the Weather Underground never served a day in jail — but he did spend decades teaching in New York City classrooms, a new book reveals.

Ronald Fliegelman built explosives for the Weather Underground, a far-left group that launched a domestic bombing campaign in the 1960s and ’70s, including one explosion inside NYPD headquarters.

But when the group dissolved, Fliegelman managed to safely fade away into the square life. For 25 years, he worked as a public special-education teacher, retiring to a quiet life in Park Slope, Brooklyn, according to “Days of Rage: America’s Radical Underground, the FBI, and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence” (Penguin Press).

And he’s unapologetic about his past, according to author Bryan Burrough. “Ron is proud of what he did,” he told The Post.

The Weather Underground first organized in 1969 as a splinter of the Revolutionary Youth Movement within the ’60s protest group Students for a Democratic Society. Their members were mostly white and middle class, advocating the complete overthrow of the US government.

Under the leadership of co-founder Bill Ayers — who went on to become a University of Illinois professor whose political relationship with then-candidate Barack Obama was scrutinized during the 2008 presidential campaign — the group also pushed for a sexual revolution. Their slogan? “Smash monogamy.”

To achieve their goals, the militant group — popularly known as the Weathermen, derived from the Bob Dylan lyric, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows” — embarked on a years-long bombing campaign, targeting places it considered pillars of US imperialism, capitalism, racism and anything contrary to their “ism” of choice: communism.

To protest the US invasion of Laos, for example, they bombed the Capitol Building in 1971. That same year, they targeted the headquarters of the state Department of Corrections in Albany for the deaths of 29 inmates during the Attica prison riot. They even busted LSD guru Dr. Timothy Leary out of a California jail and helped smuggle him to Algeria in 1970 — the same year they issued a “Declaration of a State of War” against the United States.

“We believed Third World countries would rise up and cause crises that would bring down the industrialized West, and we believed it was going to happen tomorrow, or maybe the day after tomorrow,” a former Weatherman tells Burrough.

“The myth, and this is always Bill Ayers’ line, is that Weather never set out to kill people, and it’s not true — we did,” group member Howie Machtinger tells Burrough. “You know, policemen were fair game.”

Despite the tough talk, the group was already in crisis not long after its formation. On March 6, 1970, a bomb exploded prematurely inside a town house at 18 W. 11th St. in Greenwich Village. Three Weathermen were killed — the two building the bomb, Terry Robbins and Diana Oughton, and another, Ted Gold, who was entering the building.

If the Weathermen were going to wage a war, they needed to do so without killing their own members, Burrough notes. “No one knew what to do. I gave a thought to giving up, and I had a gun pulled on me and was told I was not leaving,” recalls Fliegelman.

The son of a Philadelphia doctor, Fliegelman got his start with Students for a Democratic Society, where he gained a reputation for being a technically proficient workaholic, once manually printing hundreds of leaflets when the mechanical printer broke down. “Fliegelman was the one person who knew how to strip down and reassemble guns, motorcycles and radios, who knew how to weld, who could fix almost anything,” writes Burrough.

“Everyone was afraid of the stuff, for good reason,” Fliegelman says. “What we were dealing with was a group of intellectuals who didn’t know how to do anything with their hands. I did. I wasn’t afraid of it, I knew it could be handled.”

After the Village town-house explosion, Weather Underground founding member Jeff Jones summoned Fliegelman to a meeting in Central Park. “You either know how to build something or you don’t,” Fliegelman says. “[Jones] said, ‘Well, what do we do?’ And I said, ‘This can never happen again. I’ll take care of it.’ And I did.”

From that day on, Fliegelman spent hundreds of hours studying explosives. “When you’re young and you’re confident, you can do anything. So, yeah, you play with it, and try to build something. The timer is the whole thing, right? It’s just electricity going into the blasting cap,” he says.

“Eventually, I came up with a thing where I inserted a lightbulb, and when the bulb lit, the circuit was complete, and we were able to test things that way. If the light came on, it worked. The rest of it is simple.”

Members recognized his contribution. One member described him as possessing “a Santa Claus twinkle in his eye that inspired confidence.” “Without him,” former Weatherman Brian Flanagan tells Burrough, “there would be no Weather Underground.” From then on, Fliegelman says, he built most of the group’s bombs, even jetting off to the San Francisco Bay Area to help members there. “Maybe they did two or three things without me,” he tells Burrough. “But I doubt it.”

Weather Underground also bombed the Pentagon

His first attack, in 1970, was the most nerve-racking. And why not? They were going inside NYPD headquarters. “That first one was the scariest,” Fliegelman recalls. “Going into a public building, there was security, and you had to get past it. We had people who did the casings. We needed people who wouldn’t be noticed, so they went in dressed like lawyers. Still, I was scared. Very scared. We knew if we did this, they would come after us.”

But things went smoothly. “It wasn’t like they had metal detectors back then. There was just a guy at the desk, and we walked right past him,” Fliegelman tells Burrough.

The bomb — created in an apartment on quaint Amity Street in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn — had a simple design: 15 sticks of dynamite attached to a Westclox alarm clock bought at a RadioShack. The device, hidden in a hollowed-out law book, was placed above a ceiling tile in a second-floor bathroom at the Centre Street building, about 125 feet from Commissioner Howard Leary’s office.

At 6:40 p.m. on June 9, a warning was called in, and 17 minutes later, the bomb exploded, destroying two walls and blasting a 20-by-40-foot hole in the floor.

Mayor John Lindsay promised a “relentless” investigation, but that didn’t slow down Fliegelman, who built the bomb that blasted a toilet in the Corrections offices in Albany, Burrough writes.

“Tonight we attacked the head offices of the New York State Department of Corrections,” the group boasted afterwards. “We must continue to make the Rockefellers, Oswalds, Reagans and Nixons pay for their crimes. We only wish we could do more to show the courageous prisoners at Attica, San Quentin and the other 20th-century slave ships that they are not alone in their fight for the right to live.”

Fliegelman’s memory gets hazy when asked about the Capitol bombing of 1971. He says he “believes” he built the device placed in the first-floor men’s room near the Senate, which caused about $300,000 in damage, according to Burrough. And he says he can’t remember whether he built the bomb that went off in a fourth-floor rest room at the Pentagon in 1972 in retaliation for US raids in Hanoi.

Burrough says Ayers, in his memoir, “Fugitive Days,” refers to Fliegelman’s involvement in the Pentagon caper, calling him by the pseudonym “Aaron.”

“Aaron was the backbone of the group — entirely committed and trustworthy, hardworking and dependable . . . A guy we all believed could easily survive in the Australian Outback or the Siberian wilderness for weeks with nothing but a pocket knife . . . The model middle cadre,” Ayers writes.

The group began to dissolve after a peace accord was signed to end the Vietnam War in 1973, and four years later, it was defunct. By then, Fliegelman was living with fellow Weatherman Cathy Wilkerson, a bomb-maker in her own right.

The two had a daughter and split up. Fliegelman, meanwhile, simply returned to his parents’ home in Philadelphia, working at a school for troubled children, abandoning his bomb-making ways as easily as a snake sheds its skin. “For me, it was really seamless,” he tells Burrough. “No one — the FBI, no one — ever came looking for me.”

Fliegelman was among 13 Weathermen indicted on charges of conspiring to commit bombings and assassinations, but the indictment was dropped in 1973 by the Justice Department in the wake of a Supreme Court decision that barred the use of electronic surveillance without a court order. Fliegelman was underground at the time and never arrested, Burrough notes.

There’s a five-year statute of limitations on most federal crimes except for murder, so by the time he began working for the city in 1983, Fliegelman didn’t have to look over his shoulder.

He started as a special-education teacher at PS 54 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and later taught at PS 305, also in Bed-Stuy, according to the Department of Education. He retired in 2006. Now 70 years old, Fliegelman collected $40,035 in pension last year, according to public records.

His life now appears to have taken on all the trappings of the leisure class. On Thursday, he was seen walking a small white dog in idyllic Park Slope before climbing into a Subaru Forester SUV.

Approached by The Post, Fliegelman, who wears a neat ponytail, said: “What happened 40 years ago is different from what’s going on today. War was a big thing. It was on TV every night. You don’t know that with the Iraqi war, the Afghanistan war. There was the draft, as well.”

Asked whether he considered himself a terrorist, he said: “Did you ever notice how many people were hurt by our bombs? People were not hurt by our bombs.”

Paging Code Pink: Troops from 10th Mountain Division heading to Iraq this summer

Stars and Stripes: Troops from the Army’s 10th Mountain Division will be headed to Iraq later this year, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced Monday.

About 1,250 soldiers from the division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, based at Fort Drum, N.Y., will deploy in August or September to train, advise and assist the Iraqi security forces as they battle the Islamic State. The deployment will last nine months, according to Maj. Josh Jacques, a spokesman for the 10th Mountain Division.

Deploying members of the unit will replace soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division.

Illegal Aliens Gain Non-Obamacare Health Insurance If Obama’s Executive Action Implemented

illegal

Breitbart: Add non-Obamacare government health insurance to the benefits that foreign nationals currently illegally present in the United States could receive should President Obama’s November 2014 executive action be determined constitutional in the courts.

If implemented, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) would grant legal status to an estimated five million foreign nationals illegally present in the U.S.

“These immigrants are not eligible for health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act [commonly known as Obamacare], but Californians who are granted DACA or DAPA become eligible for comprehensive Medi-Cal coverage under state policy if otherwise eligible based on income,” reads a March joint report from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and the UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education. Medi-Cal is California’s form of the federal Medicaid program.

That joint report details the number of potential new DACA and DAPA recipients eligible for Medi-Cal at between approximately 360,000 and 500,000. This reflects the estimate that some 57% of those eligible for DACA or DAPA “lacked private health insurance and had income below the Medi-Cal eligibility threshold in 2013.” However, these are estimates, and the number could be higher or lower depending on a number of variables including estimates of the number of illegal aliens that exist in the state, how many apply for DACA and DAPA, and how many apply for Medi-Cal and meet the criteria.

According to the report, “Approximately half of low-income undocumented Californians are already enrolled in restricted scope Medi-Cal, which covers emergency and pregnancy-related services for undocumented residents under a long-standing federal policy.”

Between 2.2 and 3.2 million “undocumented” aliens are currently illegally present in California according to the joint AC Berkeley-UCLA policy study. Of those, between 1.23 and 1.57 million are estimated to be eligible for either DACA or DAPA.

The study also provided a chart indicating that, as of 2013, only 30% of potential DACA applicants were 18 years old or younger. Another 61% were in the 19-29 range and 9% were 30-44. Approximately 190,000 or 62% of those in California eligible for the first wave of DACA have had their applications approved, the study estimates. The great majority of eligible DAPA recipients are between 30 and 44 at 67%.

The recent decision from Texas Judge Andrew Hanen ordered a halt to implementation of President Obama’s executive action over questions of its constitutionality.

Echoing a recent assertion made by Representative Luis Gutierrez, the joint study pushes the idea that Judge Hanen’s decision will be overturned. However, the study cites “immigration policy experts” in that assertion, then links that reference only to the progressive National Immigration Law Center (NILC), an advocate for legalization of illegally present aliens.

During the Los Angeles stop on Representative Luis Gutierrez’s cross-country DACA/DAPA tour, Saturday, March 21, one woman asked what would happen if her kids got hurt or sick since they are not on Obamacare. AB 60 illegal alien driver license and programs specialist Carlos Leon told the potential DACA/DAPA applicant that “there is insurance available for undocumented individuals and it does not have to be Obamacare.”

Under ‘policy implications,’ the study makes the case that “providing comprehensive coverage will build upon availability of existing federal and state funds,” claiming, “the state’s eligibility policy will also contribute to a healthier California workforce.” The study claims “previous medical expansions,” have been associated with lower death rates and overall general better health. A 2012 study was widely circulated claiming a similar result.

However, multiple other reports correlate Medicaid with lack of sufficient or effective healthcare. The Heritage Foundation reports, “A number of academic studies over the years have illustrated that Medicaid patients have consistently had poor access to care and that Medicaid fails to meet important needs.”

Medicaid expansion is also large part of the plan to extend health insurance under Obamacare, comprising more than half of that new coverage, according to a 2012 Manhattan Institute report.

Why Are Feminists All So Damn UGLY?

image While reading DCG’s recent post http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2015/03/28/hey-guys-your-handy-guide-to-dating-a-feminist/ a revelation occurred to me: feminism is a conspiracy. A conspiracy created by big pharma in order to sell millions of dollars worth of Viagra!

Outlandish, you say. Not at all! Have you ever been to a feminist rally or seen pictures of feminists? What’s the first thing you notice? If you’re a male, like me, I know what your answer is: My gosh, they’re all UGLY! Can you see the conspiracy now???

By dismissing beauty, femininity, and girlish charm, feminism promotes ugliness. It turns beautiful, free-spirited girls into manly, dogma-spouting zombies. It brainwashes them, destroys their individuality, and casts them adrift in the sea of sameness; they become corks bobbing in the ocean of political correctness. (And ugly corks at that.) Talk about useful idiots! (http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

Now do you see the conspiracy??? Confronted by all this ugliness, men can no longer get it up! Who wants to get intimate with a brainwashed shrew? Who wants to make love with someone who looks like their brother Hank? One look at these “feminists” and any normal man goes completely limp! Then Viagra sales go through the roof!

Why it’s downright brilliant! They take young, red-blooded American males, send them off to college where they’re surrounded by dimwitted, Marxist-quoting, butched-out females, and for the rest of his life, the poor guy needs medication to get a rise!

It’s genius, I tell you! Genius! And look at the ancillary sales in liquor and mind-altering drugs! A guy would have to get stone-faced drunk in order to find feminist women attractive. No wonder frat parties serve so much booze!

Can you imagine being married to a feminist??? The horror, the horror! There’s no surprise why the divorce rate is so high now, is there?

Forget about preaching abstinence to youngsters. Send some of these feminazis around to the high schools. Teen sex will disappear faster than you can say Hilary Clinton.

Kinda explains why lesbianism is on the rise, too. When the feminists discover that no man wants to touch them, they turn to the only available source of intimacy: other feminists!

All those false rape accusations we keep hearing about from the universities? It’s their wounded pride, don’t you see? Their egos can’t take the rejection, so they make up stories!

I’d like to keep writing, but I don’t have time. Gotta call my stock broker and load up on shares from companies selling Viagra. I figure I’ll be a millionaire in no time.

Wayne Allyn Root on Obama’s Gestapo

Wayne Allyn Root

Obama’s America

Obama is going rogue. By every metric the Obama economy is melting down. We are seeing the beginning stages of another recession at best, or a total economic meltdown at worst.

At the moment there are no decent paying jobs in America. Obama has opened the border and given amnesty to at least 5 million illegal aliens already in the country, thereby putting them in competition with working class and middle class Americans.
Think I’m wrong? Did you know the government is giving businesses a $3000 incentive to hire illegal’s over native-born Americans?

Did you know cities are hiring non-citizens (and even illegal aliens given amnesty by Obama) as policemen? All you need is a work permit. Someone here illegally can wear a badge and enforce the law against you.

Did you think the border crisis was over? Obama’s amnesty has encouraged a new wave of poverty-stricken illegals at the border.

And, in a bankrupt nation with over $18 trillion in debt, Obama has used amnesty to give illegals access to food stamps, free healthcare, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, earned income tax credits…and by issuing drivers licenses and Social Security cards they will be able to vote immediately (because States don’t have the technology to tell the difference between a legal citizen or a noncitizen, legal or not).

The Obamacare fiasco gets worse by the day. The middle class is being bankrupted by skyrocketing increases in their health insurance premiums; hospitals are being bankrupted by the flood of illegal aliens accessing services; and the economy will drown in the new debt caused by Obamacare.

Obama’s claim that ISIS is on the run is a proven fraud, ripped bare by America’s embarrassing military withdrawl from Yemen.

Obama is going nuclear in his hatred for Bibi Netanyahu and Israel, force-feeding the world a weak nuclear agreement with Iran that is so bad, even France is fighting for stronger sanctions. Meanwhile Obama threatens to become the first president in history to abandon Israel at the United Nations.

But, I haven’t gotten to the bad part yet. Is it possible the terrible news about the economy, the border, ISIS and Israel is all just a distraction? Because the really important news is that Obama has created a modern-day version of “the Gestapo.”

The Obama government is using an initiative called “Operation Chokepoint” to force legal businesses it doesn’t like out of business, by threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors.

At the same time, the Obama government is urging banks to call the police to report citizens who withdraw $5000 or more from their own bank accounts. Yes, I said banks are urged to call the police, when you withdraw your own money.

This comes at the same time that FEMA announced it will no longer provide FEMA disaster relief funds to states whose Governors deny “climate change.”

And let’s not forget Obama used an FCC party-line vote to take over the Internet and institute sweeping new changes to a system that is working perfectly as the form of communication for most Americans.

Obama’s first goal is clearly massive new taxes on Internet usage, just another way to destroy the middle class and redistribute income. But is his real goal controlling communications on the Internet- specifically the anti-Obama criticism and anti-government message so prevalent on the Internet.

But let’s circle back to the most Gestapo-like Obama initiative ever. It’s called “Operation Chokepoint.” This is your government’s attempt to put morality controls (just like those in Iran) on the American public by shutting down gun stores, precious metals companies, casinos, tobacco distributors, telemarketers, and short-term money lenders.

How can they close legal businesses you ask? By threatening and intimidating banks and credit card processors to close accounts for businesses the government doesn’t like. Just like an Iranian Ayatollah, if Obama doesn’t like your business, he will “choke off” your ability to stay in business. Hence the name, “Operation Chokepoint.”

Never forget Obama has been on a 6-year long relentless crusade to raise our taxes and take away our tax deduction for charitable donations, choking off contributions to churches. Yes, Obama is trying to “choke off” the funding that keeps churches in business too.

Why is this happening? First, because Obama despises capitalism. He needs to put prosperous businesses out of business. By murdering the middle class’s ability to prosper, he creates his utopia of equality (ie “shared misery”), making everyone dependent on government in a classless, socialist society. Think Cuba and Venezuela.

Second, there is an obvious reason Obama hates these particular industries. The subtitle of my 2009 book, “The Conscience of a Libertarian” says it all. The subtitle was “Empowering the Citizen Revolution with God, Guns, Gold, Gambling & Tax Cuts.” Is it a coincidence that virtually every item I mentioned is under attack?

The businesses on the list of “Operation Chokepoint” are all dominated by people that Obama would describe as capitalists, patriots, conservatives, Tea Partiers, Christians and supporters of the Constitution. Not coincidently, those are the same groups targeted by Obama in the IRS scandal.

And then of course, if Obama can’t close your business, or “choke off” your ability to prosper, he can force banks to call the police if you dare to withdraw money from your own account.

Folks this is eerily reminiscent of The Gestapo, or the Soviet KGB, or the East German Stasi.

Is this the America you want? The NSA spying on your every move…the federal government in charge of your healthcare and now your free speech on the Internet…the IRS auditing enemies and critics of the government…the federal government forcing legal businesses they deem “unacceptable” out of business…and banks spying on their own customers and being forced to call the police when customers withdraw too much of their own money.

Yes, under Barack Hussein Obama the Gestapo is alive and well in the former “Land of the Free.”

Smartphones Are Debasing Society

image

The following appeared on Henry Makow’s excellent site:

http://henrymakow.com/2015/03/smartphones-have-debased-society.html

Thanks to smartphones, people are always
distracted. They are not interacting with people
or places in the moment. Baby boomers like
David Douthit have banished them from their lives.

by David Scott Douthit
(henrymakow.com)

Everywhere, people seem to be glued to their smartphones. I was at one of my son’s baseball games. My ex-wife and my daughter were in the bleachers behind home plate. Neither one saw any of the game, as they were both busy texting the entire game. My son hit his first home run. After the game he asked his Mom if she saw it. She answered, “Saw what?”

I tried the smartphone thing around ten years ago. The problem was people kept calling me up. They would call when I was walking the dog. They would call when I was taking a nap. They would call and expect me to call them back immediately, and get mad when I didn’t. The smart phone was much more an inconvenience, than convenience. I threw it away, and have not had one since.

My wife and I had to put a sign on our front door that reads “Turn that bleeping smartphonr off!” because her kids kept coming over to make phone calls, or at least that is the way it seemed. It was aggravating when a visitor comes over and just had to “take this call” or that call after call. Or, they would be sitting on the couch looking at the smart phone and texting. You get schizophrenic trying to converse with someone who is some place else mentally all the time.

HEALTH DANGERS

Then there is the matter of electromagnetic radiation waves emitted from the smart phone into the users brain.

There is ample evidence smartphones cause brain tumors, as well as a host of other maladies. I make it a point to tell all my family and friends about that risk. It is usually dismissed with a, “So what? Everybody dies sometime.”

Although my son has a smartphone, I do not allow him to put it up next to his brain, or carry it in his pocket next to his testicles. Organ tissue is much more sensitive than muscle or bone. My boy is only seventeen, but I would like him to use his brain, and father some grand kids someday.

This generation will be stunted. They have conceded their cognitive ability to computers and cell phones. It appears this has enabled them to argue and bicker with people non-stop. The smartphone is a extension of their sour attitude. Grammar and good manners are gone.

This generation has no morals. The breakdown of morality has a lot to do with rise of technology. You would think technology would not have affect morality, but it has enabled the wolves among us to be more wolf-like. Guys brag about bedding hundreds of women. They attribute the ability to meet more women to modern technology.

Most modern men have absolutely no standards. The only standard they have is their ability to use other people. The exact inverse of the Golden Rule.

I also try to stay off the computer. I have to admit, it is addictive. The pixels excite the brain in a drug-like fashion. I have spent too much time on the computer in the past. It didn’t make me any happier or wiser.

Knowledge and wisdom are two different things. Knowledge is accumulated information. Wisdom is the ability to know the right way to use it. Wisdom is gained by negotiating difficult situations, crises, real life moral dilemmas. Time spent on the computer is not real life experience. I think I will go for a walk and exercise some wisdom and my legs.

Makow comment- And David doesn’t even get into the surveillance aspects.

First Comment from Dan:

I’ve lived with dial phone ‘land lines’, sending letters by postman, and writing checks. “New” isn’t always better; it’s a always a trade-off. Switching from land line telephone to ‘smartphone’ exchanges one set of inconveniences for another, more complicated set.

At the moment people remain concerned mainly about the loss of privacy [1] that goes with storing every byte of information about you on these GPS tracking, hand held chipset.

But you’ll get over that. Now that they’ve got you hooked on ‘convenience’ , heavily invested into it (iPhones ain’t cheap), and visually dependent upon digitally processed images do recognize what you’re seeing on that little screen as ‘real’, privacy will become less important. – See more at: http://henrymakow.com/2015/03/smartphones-have-debased-society.html#sthash.S4TX7ugM.dpuf

It’s Colder Because It’s Warmer, Camel Urine, and HPVs

The article below by journalist, Jim O’Neill, may make some folks a bit squeamish, so if that’s the case, pass this one by.  Nevertheless, it is loaded with information and truth, some of which is quite frightening.  Jim has given his permission to repost his article.

In my last article (“The USA in Libya: Battle of Derne”) I should have perhaps made mention of the fact that among the “colorful characters” who took part in that battle was Oliver Hazard Perry, who commanded the “USS Nautilus.” Perry would later go on to gain fame during the “War of 1812,” and his statement “We have met the enemy and they are ours” became something of a cultural catchphrase. Cartoonist Walt Kelly famously turned Perry’s comment on its head in 1971 with “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

Be that as it may, this article concerns itself (albeit briefly) with a few of the many lies put out by the Obama Administration – I will wrap up the article with a couple of cautionary public health announcements.

First a glance at a few of the more outrageous liberal spins. If you thought that the global cooling trend would have the global warming alarmists scurrying for cover you would be wrong. As many of you know, we are now being told (with a straight face I might add) that the world is getting colder because it is getting warmer.

The UK’s “Daily Mail” warns us that “Global warming could be triggering increasingly cold winters in some parts of the world….” Yikes! It was bad enough when it was just getting hotter because of AGW (Anthropocentric Global Warming), but now it’s making things colder as well! Alas, it appears we are stuck between Scylla and Charybdis.

Mind you, these “scientific facts” are brought to us courtesy of the same folks who told us that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, al Qaeda is on the run, that if you like your health care you can keep your health care, and the attacks in Benghazi were the result of a barely watchable and barely watched video.  Caveat emptor people.

Now for the public health concerns. We can thank Walid Shoebat for bringing to our attention the fact that the widespread use of camel products in Saudi Arabia is almost certainly responsible for the spread of MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). This includes the practices of shampooing with, and drinking, camel urine.

Since 2012, more than 1,000 cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) have been reported and almost 400 deaths. Infection has been confirmed in the US, France, the UK and other countries, usually after travel to Saudi Arabia, where the virus was first identified.

The only reason for the virus to be shrouded in mystery is political correctness.

Walid Shoebat “MERS Is Surging Again In…Saudi Arabia: The Cover-Ups Behind Muslims Drinking Camel Urine

I concur with Mr. Shoebat. In our politically correct Brave New World of relativistic multiculturalism — where ISIS savages stand on an equal footing with Doctors Without Borders — who will dare point out that someone’s cultural norm poses an unsanitary health risk?

Speaking of unsanitary health risks, there is another health risk that appears to be an inexplicable puzzle to health officials – and this health risk is occurring in the USA.

I am speaking of the marked increase in oral and rectal cancer among young American adults. “Forbes” ran an article last fall titled “For Reasons Unknown, Colon And Rectal Cancer Rates Are Rising In People Under 50.” I think I can help point researchers in a profitable direction.

What I am about to briefly discuss does not make for pleasant “table talk,” so if you feel you might be offended by topics of a sexual nature then by all means feel free to stop reading my article at this point.

As homosexuals and the homosexual lifestyle have become increasing accepted in our culture so have sexual practices first popularized and propagated in the homosexual community – i.e. oral and anal sex. So widespread are these practices in the young adult heterosexual community these days that although I would not say that they are by any means standard sexual fare, they are far from being the rarity they once were – especially oral sex (due in no small part to the example set by former President Bill “It’s Not Really Sex” Clinton).

Is there a cause-and-effect relationship between oral/anal sex, some HPV (Human PapillomaVirus) strains, and the rise in cases of oral and anal cancer? I don’t know for sure one way or the other, but I suspect that there is indeed such a correlation. In any event, it is worth looking into — political correctness be damned.

According to Dr. Richard Watson:

HPV is now widely recognized as responsible for more than 95% of cervical cancers in women.

Today, cervical cancer is a pandemic disease worldwide, and the rapidly escalating transmission of HPV augurs even starker statistics for decades to come.

HPV is recognized to be the most frequently acquired sexually transmitted viral infection worldwide.

Whatever utility condoms may have in preventing transmission of other sexually transmitted diseases, they provide no proven protection against the transmission of HPV.

The good news is that with early detection the prognosis for successfully treating HPV-related cancers in non-smoking patients is excellent. Also, doctors report efficacious results in fighting HPV (especially the virulent strains 16 and 18) using the vaccines Gardasil or Cervarix. I am well aware of how leery, if not downright hostile, many readers are regarding the use of vaccines, and I am not promoting their use, but perhaps some of you may wish to research the topic further and come to your own conclusions.

The bad news is that cases of oral and rectal cancer continue increasing year after year. It should be noted that, in any event, partaking in certain elements of the homosexual lifestyle can lead to a significant reduction in a person’s life expectancy (e.g. one report I read noted that “anal cancers are about 35 times more common in gay men than the general population”). Be advised that the last few paragraphs should not be taken as an oblique slur on homosexuality; they are meant simply as a word to the wise. An alert awareness of the above health concerns is in order.

Being politically correct and sticking our head in the sand over these matters can and will cost any number of lives. Do not expect the “it’s getting colder because it’s warmer” crowd to inform you about such things.
