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.

Richard A. Watson, MD “Human Papillomavirus: Confronting the Epidemic

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.

 

 

 

 

Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons

4-Star Admiral Slams Obama: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated All Of Our National Security Agencies

Published on Jan 28, 2015

During a press conference on how to combat radical Islamic extremism, Admiral James A. “Ace” Lyons (U.S. Navy, Ret.), former Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet, stated that under the leadership of Barack Obama the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated all of the National Security Agencies of the United States. Furthermore, Lyons said that Obama is deliberately unilaterally disarming the military and spoke to the need for the new GOP controlled congress and Military leaders to stand up to the administration and uphold their oaths.


Marxist origin of the homosexual movement

Lana, a reader of FOTM, recently made a very insightful comment, citing the thesis of E. Michael Jones in his book Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control. Lana writes:

…the further the sexual deviance and permissiveness i.e. sexual liberation, the inevitability of the need for social control. In other words, there is a method to the madness. TPTB promote this extreme excess because it has been scientifically shown that it paves the way for political control and repression…. [T]he end-game of the so-called “sexual liberation” — of which women’s “liberation” and the homosexual movement are part and parcel — is a way for the state to gain control.

As constraints on behavior increasingly are loosened, the social fabric increasingly becomes frayed, resulting in increasing chaos and disorder. But a society cannot function under such circumstances, so citizens increasingly turn to the state as a solution, thereby expanding the powers of government.

Indeed, Numbers 26 and 40 of the 1963 Communist Goals For America, which was entered into the Congressional Record (Appendix, pp. A34-A35) on January 10, 1963, state:

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

40. Discredit the family as an institution.  Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

On March 16, Mike published a post on “Communists Conceived Women’s Liberation Movement.” Here’s a companion piece on the Marxist (aka communist) origin of the homosexual movement.

The revolution of the family: the Marxist roots of ‘homosexualism’

by Hilary White
Life Site News
Aug 23, 2013

A few days ago in The Guardian, Peter Tatchell wrote a pretty good description not only of that ideology’s goals but its origins. This political ideology, often called “queer theory” by its proponents in academia, is what is being pushed, quite openly these days, by the “gay rights” movement. Despite what we are told all day by their collaborators in the mainstream media, from the six o’clock news to your favourite sit-com, this movement is not about “equal rights”. It is about re-writing the foundational concepts of our entire society. I predict that it will not be much longer before the pretense of “equality” is dropped, having done its work.

… Others have pointed out the Marxist origins of the Sexual Revolution as a whole, and it is clear that the sudden explosion of homosexualism is merely the next logical step in a systematic programme. A close cousin to radical feminism and grandchild of Marxism, homosexualism was developed out of the politico-academic pseudo-field of “gender studies” and has, for 30 or 40 years, been pushed on a mostly unwilling public, through “anti-discrimination” and “equalities” legislation by a coalition of lobbyists, NGOs and politicians on the extreme left, and in increasingly powerful international circles.

Peter Tatchell is a prominent British homosexualist, which means he is a proponent of a specific political and social ideology that he wants to see adopted in British society and elsewhere. He is also a homosexual man, that is, he experiences sexual attraction for other men, a condition whose origin is still debated by doctors, psychiatrists and geneticists. The two things are not the same. This is a fact that tends to escape a lot of people who read and write about the Culture Wars, especially in its current manifestation that seems to have suddenly become all about homosexuality. Not all homosexuals are homosexualists, and not all homosexualists are homosexuals.

Tatchell’s Guardian piece was a paean to a document put together in 1971 by what he describes as a collective of “anarchists, hippies, leftwingers, feminists, liberals and counter- culturalists” to bring about “a revolution in consciousness”. He called the “Gay Liberation Front: Manifesto” “a pioneering agenda for social and personal transformation” that started with the proposal that “subverting the supremacy of heterosexual masculinity was the key to genuine liberation.” Tatchell said it was the book that changed his life.

The Manifesto sums it all up, Tatchell says, by “critiquing” “homophobia, sexism, marriage, the nuclear family, monogamy, the cults of youth and beauty, patriarchy, the gay ghetto and rigid male and female gender roles” … the whole kaboodle of the sexual revolution.

The Manifesto itself is quite blunt about identifying the main enemies to defeat: “The oppression of gay people starts in the most basic unit of society, the family.”

“Consisting of the man in charge, a slave as his wife, and their children on whom they force themselves as the ideal models. The very form of the family works against homosexuality.”

Most tellingly, the Manifesto says that “reform,” in other words “equality,” is never going to be enough; what is needed is a total social revolution, a complete reordering of civilisation. Reform, it said, “cannot change the deep-down attitude of straight people that homosexuality is at best inferior to their own way of life, at worst a sickening perversion. It will take more than reforms to change this attitude, because it is rooted in our society’s most basic institution – the Patriarchal Family.”

Far from being “the source of our happiness and comfort,” it says, the family is the oppressive “unit” in which the “dominant man and submissive woman” teach children “false beliefs” about traditional “gender roles” “almost before we can talk”.

The core concept of gender ideology is given: there is “no proven systematic differences between male and female, apart from the obvious biological ones. Male and female genitals and reproductive systems are different, and so are certain other physical characteristics, but all differences of temperament, aptitudes and so on, are the result of upbringing and social pressures. They are not inborn.”

“Human beings could be much more various than our constricted patterns of ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ permit – we should be free to develop with greater individuality.”

“Our entire society,” the Manifesto says, “is built around the patriarchal family and its enshrinement of these masculine and feminine roles. Religion, popular morality art, literature and sport all reinforce these stereotypes. In other words, this society is a sexist society, in which one’s biological sex determines almost all of what one does and how one does it; a situation in which men are privileged, and women are mere adjuncts of men and objects for their use, both sexually and otherwise.”

It is this that must be overturned, entirely eradicated, before the true freedom we all deserve can be put in place.

It does not take a degree in political theory to recognise the origins of this kind of language: throw off your chains, comrades! Indeed, a very little digging will take you directly to the origins of the Gay Liberation Manifesto in the writing of the first Marxists: in this case, Friedrich Engels, who wrote a document describing what most of us call the traditional family in terms nearly identical to that of the Manifesto.

Engels called it “monogamous marriage” and said that it exists “not as the reconciliation of man and woman, still less as the highest form of such a reconciliation. Quite the contrary. Monogamous marriage comes on the scene as the subjugation of the one sex by the other; it announces a struggle between the sexes unknown throughout the whole previous prehistoric period.”

“The first class opposition that appears in history coincides with the development of the antagonism between man and woman in monogamous marriage, and the first class oppression coincides with that of the female sex by the male.”

“The modern individual family is founded on the open or concealed domestic slavery of the wife, and modern society is a mass composed of these individual families as its molecules.” Engels’ solution, of course, we all know already.

The Gay Liberation Manifesto, like Mr. Engels’ work before it, proposes that once we throw off the ancient shackles of “heterosexism, male privilege and the tyranny of traditional gender roles” we all get to live in a glorious and shining “new sexual democracy” in which “erotic shame and guilt would be banished”. This means, in practice, more or less what we now have: everyone gets to sleep around with whomever, and nobody gets to have any long-term claims on anyone else either in marriage or as parents.

Now that it has started the global “gay marriage” snowball, the ideology’s promoters seem to have only a few mop-up operations left to accomplish. The pressure is already starting to widen the burst-open definition of marriage to include multiple partners of either sex and to legalise and accept paedophilia – as an expression of “children’s rights”.

But as with all utopian visions, homosexualism’s great weakness is the failure to consider the entirety of human nature. It proposes, essentially, a permanent state of self-indulgent adolescence, and to other self-indulgent adolescents, this sounds pretty good. Have all the cake you want, eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and never get fat.

Unfortunately, since the 1960s, most of us have been raised to think that this programme is the very meaning of freedom and securing it the whole purpose of democracy. The ideology was already being promoted to children on television to children when I was a child. I remember the huge splash made in 1974 by an animated TV show called “Free to be you and me” that told us through a series of cute animated sketches, narrated by the icons of the 70s lefties Marlo Thomas and Alan Alda, that it was wrong to assume, or adopt, traditional sex roles. Gender ideology for tots.

For those who actually try to put it into practice, however, it quickly becomes obvious that humans were simply not meant to function this way, and basing an entire culture on the proposition, as we have since the 1960s, is going to create dismal state of emotional and social chaos, misery, loneliness, poverty and selfishness such as the world has never seen before.

The main problem with the homosexualist version of the Marxist dream is that you have to get everyone to agree. And I mean everyone. Marxist theorists have always known that utopia will only work if no one is allowed to raise any objection. Everyone has to agree, and no voice of dissent can be tolerated to pop the soap bubble logic of the enterprise.

The first voice to be aggressively silenced, as always, is therefore the Church that proposes something rather more rich and (ahem) fertile for man’s destiny than this facile materialism and sensualism. The Church that, furthermore, has a more comprehensive understanding of human nature, and knows that total license is not a recipe for human happiness… far from it.

Son of President Reagan says he’s not afraid to burn in Hell

Ron Reagan, the younger (and biological) son of the late President Ronald Reagan, made a 30-second ad campaign to promote atheism for the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).

FFRF ran a radio version of the ad last year on “The Randi Rhodes Show.” A TV version has been broadcast more recently on “The Daily Show” and repeatedly on CNN. ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox declined to run the ad.

In the ad, with a mocking sneer, 56-year-old Ron proudly declares that he’s “a lifelong atheist, not afraid of burning in Hell.”

Ron has been a nonbeliever since childhood and is surprised when people react negatively when they hear about it. He told the L.A. Times last year, “I think when you hold an opinion that you find entirely reasonable, you are surprised when you discover that other people don’t also consider it reasonable, and kind of get up in arms.”

VA Official Paid $288K In ‘Relocation Payments’ To Move 140 Miles

th

DailyCaller: The director of the Philadelphia VA regional benefits office was paid $288,000 in “relocation payments” to move the 140 miles from Washington, D.C. to her new home last year.

Diana Rubens was tapped last June to take over the Philadelphia regional benefits office, which is one of many VA hospitals and benefits offices currently being investigated over benefits claims.

Rubens, who previously served as the D.C.-based deputy undersecretary for field operations, where she oversaw 57 regional offices, was brought in to help fix the embattled Philadelphia facility.

A breakdown of Rubens’ “relocation payments” was not immediately available, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, but a VA spokesman said that there was nothing inappropriate with the spending.

Federal regulations allow for the reimbursement of relocation expenses including the “costs of house-hunting, moving, terminating leases, and a per-diem rate for meals and temporary housing for an employee and his or her family,” the spokesman said.

But that hefty repayment is nearly 160 percent of what Rubens earned in base pay all of last year, raising questions over what exactly that money could have gone towards. Rubens was paid more than $181,000 in 2014, according to the website FedSmith.com, which maintains a database of federal employee compensation.

“The government shouldn’t be in the business of doling out hundreds of thousands in cash to extremely well-compensated executives just to move less than three hours down the road,” Florida Rep. Jeff Miller, the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, told the Inquirer.

“For VA to pay such an outrageous amount in relocation expenses at a time when the department is continually telling Congress and taxpayers it needs more money raises questions about VA’s commitment to fiscal responsibility, transparency and true reform.”

Rubens has been mentioned before in articles criticizing other money she’s been paid by the VA. According to the Center for Investigative Reporting, in 2011, she received a bonus of more than $23,000 even though patient backlogs — one area Rubens was in charge of managing — increased by 300,000.

The Washington Examiner reported last year that Rubens received more than $97,000 in bonuses between 2007 and 2011 even though the average time to process veterans’ claims doubled to 325 days on her watch. The ratio of backlogged cases nearly doubled as well, from 37 percent in 2009 to 71 percent in 2013.

WND EXCLUSIVE

OBAMA’S ‘JIHAD AGAINST JEWS’ SPILLS ISRAEL’S NUKE SECRETS

White House declassifies details of Middle East democracy’s defenses

by BOB UNRUH

In a move blasted by commentators as part of President Obama’s “jihad against Jews,” the White House has abruptly declassified details of Israel’s nuclear program.

According to Israel National News, the Obama administration declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document with details of Israel’s assets, “a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race.”

The report said until now, the U.S. has respected that effort by remaining silent.

“But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the U.S. reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth,” the report said.

It openly questioned, “Obama revenge for Netanyahu’s Congress talk,” and other commentators were more direct.

At Shoebat.com, started by a former Muslim terrorist turned Christian, was the blunt headline “Obama’s evil revenge on Netanyahu continues.”

Pamela Geller, on her Atlas Shrugs blog, called it “Obama’s jihad against the Jews.”

“Obama is sick, sick with Jew-hatred – unbalanced, unhinged, a danger to this this country, our allies, the world. Israel’s nuclear program, whatever it may be, is purely existential insurance. If they have a nuclear weapon, they have had it for 50 years and have never used it, despite the decades-long Muslim wars against the Jews,” she wrote.

“Israel has shared its secrets with the U.S. for decades. They never imagined a jihadist in the White House…”

Obama administration tracking Muslim candidates for military, Pentagon positions

Special to WorldTribune.com

WASHINGTON — The administration of President Barack Obama has been identifying Muslims in the military in an effort to encourage their presence.

Officials said the Defense Department has been keeping records and tracking Muslims. They said the administration sought to attract Muslims both to the military and to the Pentagon.

Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work on May 22.  /Glenn Fawcett/Office of the Secretary of Defense

“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of
the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands
of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long
period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.

The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on
July 3. It was not clear how the Pentagon identified the Muslims. The department
has not given statistics on members of other religious faiths.

In 2009, a U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, shouting “God is great,”
opened fire and killed 13 of his colleagues. Later, authorities acknowledged
that Hasan, a psychiatrist, was linked to Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Critics have accused the administration of promoting Islam as the
preferential faith in the United States. Over the last year, a senior
adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, issued a
statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and
that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”

“I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary
said in a Twitter post on June 30.

On July 3, Work attended the annual Pentagon ceremony of Iftar, or the evening dinner after a day-long fast that continues throughout the Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pentagon has been conducting the ceremony since 1998 in commemoration of Islam.

“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come
together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our
beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an
important part of the Muslim community,” Work said.

The Pentagon, which hired Saudi-sponsored groups to raise awareness, has
reported the employment of 1,000 Muslims. Officials said they included
civilians and contractors for the Defense Department.

In his address, Work quoted Obama as saying that Ramadan reminded Americans of the principles of peace, justice and equality. The deputy
secretary also urged those at the Iftar to remember their responsibility to
the defense of the United States.

“Our country’s founders understood in a visceral way [that] the best way
to honor the place of faith in the lives of all Americans was to fight for
justice and equality as well as liberty and freedom,” Work said. “That is
exactly what the men and women both in and out of uniform who serve in the
Department of Defense do every single day. They are safeguarding the very
ideals deemed so precious by our founding fathers.”
