Segregation by Censorship

In his recent FrontPage Mag article, “Fighting Political Segregation with a Digital First Amendment,” Daniel Greenfield argues in favor of passing legislation to protect free speech specifically on the Internet.

Using an argument that even a radical liberal could love, he compares the recent silencing of alternative and conservative opinions online to racial and economic segregation.

Greenfield is careful to point out that the Constitutional First Amendment is limited to protection against abuses by government, not private enterprises.

For this reason, he writes, “…when those enterprises have more power over speech than governments, when their scale is such that they can sweep away entire categories of ideas across the world with the press of a key, a digital First Amendment is needed to maintain the relevance of the Bill of Rights in a new technological era when government censorship is outsourced to corporate partners.”

You could, of course, point out that at this stage, governments are owned by the corporate partners they serve. And you’d be right.

Death, Incorporated. The Internet is a sprawling virtual continent that out-scales every country and corporate media monopoly on the planet in terms of influence and viewership. (Greenfield supports this with multiple statistics – just read the article.)

For the various behemoths currently profiting from this limitless opportunity to claim that they are “private companies” is like the bubonic plague calling itself a cold sore. Big tech can inflict a lot of death on a lot of opinions and facts with a few clicks.

Unforeseen consequences. Imagine yourself a citizen of such an unlikely place from the viewpoint of those who drafted the Constitution. They never foresaw it, but here you are.

You establish your virtual domain and quietly busy yourself furnishing it with windows and doors that open onto unique views. You furnish your domain with as many books and news sources as you can find on the subjects of your choosing and go to work drafting your own articles and essays, inviting comments from the outside world.

And suddenly, you have visitors: Messrs. Madison and Hamilton knock on your door with the intention of hearing what you have to say about something as arcane to them as the Internet: Crisis actors.

“What manner of masque or, to wit, black comedy are such actors engaged in?” asks Madison. Hamilton stands there with a puzzled expression.

Before you can answer, your windpipe is blocked by a sudden gust of ones and zeroes and you and your domain are sucked into the virtual back of the bus — to a dark outer dimension.

And you see at last what the Lords of the Internet intended for you all along: Disconnection. Isolation. Silence.

But as you blow away, you can see Madison and Hamilton down there shaking their capacious heads, wondering what the devil that was all about.

“It must be the return of ignorance and barbarism,” says Hamilton. “Witchcraft,” says Madison.

I agree with them, as I agree with Greenfield: What we need is a digital First Amendment to retain the relevance of the Bill of Rights.

Without it, everyone* will eventually be silenced.

Alex Jones outed as a tranny pornster?

On August 27, 2018, Memory Hole Blog alerts us to the shocking discovery that Alt-Media giant, Alex Jones of Infowars, may be an aficionado of hardcore “transgender” pornography and, as such, may be compromised because of blackmail.

The discovery comes in the form of a video outtake from a recent Jones broadcast in which he was promoting “personal wellness” products when he clicked away from the products page on his smart phone. For a split second the camera, still trained on his smart phone’s screen, showed an array of open tabs including a still image of a hardcore transvestite porn video, “Naughty T-Babe Melissa Minx and Moka Mora Hot Sex”.

“Tbabe” is a term used to refer to “transgender” porn actors such as Marissa Minx, a so-called MtF (male to female) “transgender” who is really a biological male with breast implants. On his web site, Minx describes himself as a “sexy Australian tgirl” with an average-size penis.

The thumb-nail image on Jones’ smart phone is a crop of this larger image from the tranny porn video, labeled “Big titted T-girl Marissa Minx f*cks a guy”.

Below is a YouTube video on the revelation:

Reporting for the UK Independent yesterday, Aug. 28, Tom Batchelor claims that Alex Jones “made no comment about the page at the time of the video and has yet to respond publicly”. Batchelor crows:

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, whose transphobic rants have seen his broadcasts removed from YouTube, unwittingly revealed transgender pornography on his phone….

He has a long history of using his broadcasts to attack the LGBT+ community, suggesting on one occasion that homosexuality was not “normal biological behaviour”….

Addressing drag performers in July, Mr Jones told them: “We’re going to destroy you. You will ascend to Hell in the reverse order. You need to fear god. Your god has stolen your soul.”

More than hypocrisy, if Alex Jones indeed is a tranny pornster, his disgusting fetish may be used to blackmail him. Certainly, there are persistent rumors that he and Infowars are “controlled opposition“. As Dr. James Tracy points out:

Can someone so Janus faced and with such apparent prurient interests be entrusted to carry forth the banner defending free speech? To what degree is Jones blackmailed via such obsessions? Is this perhaps one of the reasons why Jones can’t seem to get the story straight on so many false flag incidents?

This would explain why Infowars first published, then quickly took down a post on Amazon.com banning the book, Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. Infowars even scrubbed the post from the Wayback Machine‘s Internet archive.

Update:

According to Mediaite, today (August 29) a caller into Infowars asked Jones bluntly: “What about the trans porn on your phone Alex, are you going to talk about that?”

Jones said:

“I saw a couple of news articles about that, it’s ridiculous. I was like looking up some reporter we’re trying to hire today and punched in some number and it popped up porn on my phone. Everybody has had porn pop-up on their phone, hundreds of times. So I’m sitting there with a phone on air, showing it to everybody, cause I couldn’t get a URL up in the studio, and then like some thing pops up and oh my god. And I looked at it and it wasn’t — the news blurred it out because it was nothing there. They blurred it to then say something was there, and then you went to it and it was some porn menu. I probably had porn menus pop up 500 times on my phone, so I appreciate your call. It’s insane ladies and gentlemen.

There’s two types of people: People who look at porn and people who lie about it. But I wasn’t looking at porn on my phone. I don’t take phones on air that I look at porn on.”

Question to my readers:

Does porn just “pop up” on your smart phones?

Petition to President Trump to Protect Free Speech on Internet

The social media tech giants — Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Disqus — are all owned and operated by liberals/Democrats/Progressive, i.e., the Left. Although they are separate corporations, their similar political partisanship and ideology make them a virtual monopoly. When they each act to censor and stifle the American people’s freedom of speech in social and alternative media, their collective reach approaches totalitarian in scope.

See “U.S. tech giants are waging a war against free speech

There is a petition on WhiteHouse.gov to President Trump, that he requests Congress to pass a law prohibiting the social-media tech giants from banning and censoring our speech on the Internet.

Below is the petition:

Protect Free Speech in the Digital Public Square

Created by W.C. on August 28, 2018

The internet is the modern public square. It is where political campaigns are fought and won, where journalism is created and distributed, and where grassroots movements are born. Yet, the free and open internet has become a controlled, censored space, monopolized by a few unaccountable corporations.

By banning users from their platforms, those corporations can effectively remove politically unwelcome Americans from the public square. That is repugnant to our shared values of free speech and freedom of the press.

The President should request that Congress pass legislation prohibiting social media platforms from banning users for First Amendment-protected speech. The power to block lawful content should be in the hands of individual users – not Mark Zuckerberg or Jack Dorsey.

The petition needs 100,000 signatures by September 27, 2018 to get a response from the White House.

Begun today, the petition thus far has 3,060 signatures.

Go here to sign! — and spread the word.

Greg Holt of Olive Branch Report has drafted a bill for Congress — Americans For Internet and Social Media Fair Use Act. Click here!

Separated at Birth: Sandy Hook’s Adam Lanza, Parkland’s David Hogg, Jacksonville’s David Katz

We are told that Adam Lanza was the 20-year-old lone shooter responsible for killing 20 first-graders and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.

By now, we are all familiar with that now-iconic, curiously fuzzy pic of Lanza, speculated by some in the Alt-Media to be a photoshop. Others question whether Adam Lanza was even a real person.

Born on April 22, 1992, Adam Lanza would be 26 years old today, had he lived and were he a real person.

Curiously, Adam Lanza bears a striking resemblance to David Hogg and David Katz.

David Hogg is the media-hog student activist of the M.S. Douglas High School shooting of February 14, 2018 in Parkland, Florida. We are told Hogg is 20 years old, born on April 12, 2000, but there are some who wonder if he’s actually older.

Note Hogg’s and Lanza’s similar eyebrows; same eyes; same nose; same small, thin-lipped mouth; same facial shape; same ears, especially their right ears.

David Katz was the 24-year-old lone gunman who, we are told, shot and killed two people and injured another ten before committing suicide, at a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, on August 26, 2018, at about 1:30 pm.

Source of David Katz pics: Heavy.com

Note the similarities between Katz and Lanza: same curly bangs on forehead; same facial shape; same deep-set eyes; same nose; same “cupid’s bow” upper lips; same sunken cheeks; and identical square jaws/chins.

Tech giants meet secretly to plan 2018 election strategy

The social media tech giants — Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Disqus — are all owned and operated by liberals/Democrats/Progressive, i.e., the Left. Although they are separate corporations, their similar political partisanship and ideology make them a virtual monopoly. When they each act to censor and stifle the American people’s freedom of speech in social and alternative media, their collective reach approaches totalitarian in scope.

See “U.S. tech giants are waging a war against free speech

The latest is Facebook‘s elimination, via shadow-banning, of 93% of traffic to several top conservative websites.

Note: Urban Dictionary defines shadowban: as “Banning a user from a web forum in such a way that the banned user is unaware of the ban. Usually takes the form of showing that user’s posts/profile/etc. only to that user; other users never see them. Considered underhanded chicken-shit behavior.”

Now, giving further evidence that they are a cabal, representatives from the biggest U.S. tech companies met secretly on Friday, August 24, 2018, to coordinate their strategy for the upcoming November midterm elections.

According to an email obtained by Buzzfeed, Facebook’s head of cybersecurity policy, Nathaniel Gleicher, invited employees from a dozen companies, including Google, Microsoft, and Snapchat, to gather in a private meeting last Friday at Twitter’s headquarters in downtown San Francisco to share their tactics in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections.

Gleicher wrote in his email:

As I’ve mentioned to several of you over the last few weeks, we have been looking to schedule a follow-on discussion to our industry conversation about information operations, election protection, and the work we are all doing to tackle these challenges.

Gleicher wrote that the private meeting has a three-part agenda:

  1. Each company presents the work they’ve been doing to counter information operations.
  2. A discussion period for problems each company faces.
  3. Talk about whether such a meeting should become a regular occurrence.

In May 2018, nine of those companies met at Facebook with two US government representatives, Department of Homeland Security Under Secretary Chris Krebs and Mike Burham from the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force, created in November.

Tech companies, Facebook and Twitter in particular, have faced intense scrutiny for how slowly they initially reacted to reports that foreign intelligence and affiliated operations used their platforms to manipulate users ahead of the 2016 election, leading to drops in user confidence and a threat of regulation from lawmakers.

11 years ago, Adrenochrome was featured in UK TV series 'Lewis'

Last November, our Trail Dust published a post, “Adrenochrome and Elite Vampirism,” about AltMedia rumors of elites kidnapping children not just for pedophilia, but to kill them for adrenochrome.
Needless to say, ingesting a human’s adrenochrome is a form of cannibalism.
At the time, cautiously skeptical, I wrote this comment:

Adrenochrome is a chemical compound produced by the oxidation of adrenaline. (Oxidation is the loss of electrons during a reaction by a molecule, atom or ion.)
Every credible source I’ve read on adrenochrome says its effects may be hallucinogenic and psychotropic, and may trigger psychotic reactions such as thought disorder, derealization, and euphoria. Nothing on adrenochrome being rejuvenating or life-extending. Which then beggars the question of why the “elites” would consume adrenochrome.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adrenochrome
http://www.chemistrylearner.com/adrenochrome.html
Since the buying and selling of adrenochrome is legal in the United States (it can even be bought online here), the question must be asked why would the “elites” resort to killing children for it? . . .
And if adrenochrome indeed slows the aging process, you can be sure Big Pharma would have manufactured adrenochrome pills to sell to us.
Going by the decrepit appearances of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros, whatever “anti-aging” thing they’re ingesting sure isn’t working.


To which, Trail Dust responded:

My thesis is that the chase for a drug rush from adrenochrome is entirely separate from the quest for rejuvenation. I believe the desire for the fountain of youth is expressed in the evil harvesting of “long” telomeres from aborted or murdered children. And the lust for physical power is directly associated with harvested adrenochrome.
So we have a person in power seeking to reverse aging with baby telomeres, and we have a person seeking a thrill fulfilling it by drinking blood heavily infused with adrenochrome. Sometimes that’s the same person, sometimes the same sacrificed baby providing both substances.
When I was a little child, a friend and I stumbled into a trap set by evil local boys (one is still thought to be genuinely evil 50+ years later) in our neighborhood. We were walking through the woods near our homes when my friend was suddenly hoisted upside down into the air by a noose on his ankle. I immediately identified this as a death trap and burst out towards the nearest safety, which was my friend’s mother’s house. I have never been a super fast runner, even thought then and now I have been athletic. But at that moment my legs moved at seemingly supernatural speed. The enemy kid chasing me could have easily caught me under normal circumstances, but my speed at that moment was beyond anything I have ever experienced. Now, think of a Hollywood actor or producer finding access to a sip of blood from my adrenal gland at that moment of maximal terror at a very young age (I think I was about 7 years old); think of nearly unlimited physical speed for a flight or ferocity for a fight.
People without a good conscience might accept the moral evil for the personal gain. And all that is still separate from the seeking of power through devils by committing the sacrifice of children (the very spiritual crime that finally brought the wrath of God down on the jews).

And my response:

Since it is legal to buy and sell adrenochrome in the U.S. (you can even buy it online), then why the need to obtain adrenochrome by killing children? That makes no sense.

It turns out that eleven years ago, long before Andrenochrome became the stuff of AltMedia chatter, the drug was featured in second episode of Season One of the TV series, Lewis, which was first aired in Britain on February 18, 2007. [Inspector] Lewis is a spin-off from the popular Inspector Morse series.
In Episode Two, “Whom the Gods Would Destroy,” written by Danny Boyle,  beginning at about the 1:16:50 mark, DI Lewis and DS Hathaway were searching a suspect’s apartment, in a case concerning the murders of two members of an Oxford University club from 30 years ago — the Sons of the Twice Born (a reference to the Greek god Dionysius). Those murders harken back to the murder of a prostitute 30 years ago by the Oxford club.
In the suspect’s apartment, Hathaway found a note-pad with the imprint of the word “Adrenochrome”.
Hathaway explains: “It’s a drug, a very special drug found in a very special place. To harvest adrenochrome, you have to go to Hell itself. You’ve got to murder for it.
The scene then cuts to Lewis and Hathaway interrogating the female suspect.
Lewis: “Do you know what adrenochrome is? . . . Adrenochrome is a drug, Tina. And Platt and his crew (referring to the Oxford students club), they thought drugs could work wonders for them, couldn’t get enough of them. And how they wanted to try adrenochrome, but try it in its purest form which, myth has it, gives the highest of highs. But the thing about it is, in its purest form adrenochrome comes from the human adrenal gland. When you remove that, the donor dies.

It is said that director Stanley Kubrick’s death, at age 70, from a massive heart attack on March 7, 1999, mere days after submitting a final cut to Warner Brothers of his last movie, Eyes Wide Shut, was the Illuminati’s retribution for Kubrick revealing their secrets in the movie. (See “Eyes Wide Shut: Occult Symbolism“)
Here’s a video showing the Illuminati symbology employed by Kubrick in Eyes Wide Shut:

Kubrick was not being far-fetched.
In my November 2012 post, “There really are sex orgies of the global elite,” I quoted the New York Times — that the criminal charges against former IMF managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn:

“offered a keyhole view into a clandestine practice in certain powerful circles of French society: secret soirees with lawyers, judges, police officials, journalists and musicians that start with a fine meal and end with naked guests and public sex with multiple partners. […]
The exclusive orgies called “parties fines” — lavish Champagne affairs costing around $13,000 each — were organized as a roving international circuit from Paris to Washington by businessmen seeking to ingratiate themselves with Mr. Strauss-Kahn.”

Then there’s that sinister 1972 masked ball thrown by the Rothchilds in the UK. Among the creepy pics of the ball is this photo of a table centerpiece comprised of mutilated baby dolls. Was that a hint at child sacrifice?

If Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut indeed is fact-based, then we have reason to suspect that the reference to adrenochrome in the Lewis episode “Whom the Gods Would Destroy” is also fact-based.

Homeland Security to compile database to track bloggers, journalists and other 'media influencers'

Amidst “concerns” regarding accuracy in media and the potential for “fake news” to influence elections and policy, the Trump Administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is compiling a database to track “media influencers,” including journalists, correspondents and bloggers.

On April 3, 2018, DHS posted a solicitation notice for a contractor to create a “Media Monitoring Services” database.
According to the DHS’s “Statement of Work” (RNBO-18-00041_SOW_-_Draft.docx), the chosen contracting company will perform the following “media monitoring” services:

  1. Monitor and track traditional news sources as well as social media for coverage relevant to Washington, DHS or a particular event, to include:
    • > 290,000 global news sources.
    • Online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, local sources, national/international outlets, traditional news sources, and social media.
    • > 100 languages, including Arabic, Chinese and Russian.
    • Translation function to instantly translate these articles to English.
  2. Analyze the media coverage in terms of content, volume, sentiment, geographical spread, top publications, media channels, reach, AVE, top posters, influencers, languages, momentum, circulation.
  3. Monitor the public activities of media members and influencers by “location, beat and influencers”.
  4. Create for users to access a 24/7 password-protected, online platform, mobile app, and media influencer database, including journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc.

QAnon: John Podesta in ill health; Tony Podesta in custody

John Podesta is a longtime Democratic Party operative who was White House chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s administration, White House counselor in the Obama administration and, most recently, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Tony Podesta, John’s brother, is a powerful DC-based Democrat lobbyist.

The mysterious Trump Administration insider, Q Anon, posted this about John and Tony Podesta on January 28, 2018:

“John Podesta is in ill health at the moment. Skippy was in a military medical facility till Monday, just left. Waiting to hear where he is right now. His brother is in the lower 48 in Military Custody.
GITMO journeys R 2 get the intel, they are not yet permanent residents. Again, for the record,we have never said they were there permanently.We said they had visits,some for much longer than others.There R so many moving parts that it changes not by day/week but by the minute….
No deals for the people at the very top.”

In early November 2017, it was rumored that Tony Podesta had been indicted and arrested. He had not tweeted (@realTonyPodesta) since June 16, 2017.
You already know about the Podesta brothers’ fondness for a cannibalism painting and their invitation to “artist” Marina Abramovic’s satanic spirit cooking dinner, as well as a hanging sculpture in Tony Podesta’s living room, “The Arch of Hysteria,” which is a homage to how cannibal serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer posed one of his victims.

Here are more “fun” facts about the Podesta brothers:
(1) John Podesta has an alter ego named “Skippy”: He told an interviewer that his hot temper “accounts for the occasional appearance of Skippy, his sarcastic and ill-humored alter ego.” (Politico)
(2) John Podesta likes to slaughter pigs: In that same fawning Politico article (July 10, 2009) by Marian Burros, John Podesta said that while attending law school at Georgetown, to earn money he spent two years working at Turkey Run Farm (now called Claude Moore Colonial Farm) in McLean, VA, where he learned how to butcher and roast a pig. Podesta said:

“It’s best to do the butchering at 4 a.m., because pigs should be slaughtered when it is cool, and it takes a long time to roast them. The pig is hauled on a front-end loader in order to split and gut it. It’s most important to slow the pig down by shooting it between the eyes so you can cut its throat. It makes the pig less ornery and a whole lot more cooperative than if you just stick a knife in its throat.”

Podesta used to have a picture of a pig on a spit as his computer screen saver, but his staffers made him get rid of it, because “They couldn’t stand looking into the pig’s eyes during meetings.”
(3) Tony Podesta once sent an email to John and wife Mary, with the subject “Last night was fun,” referencing a “torture chamber” (source: WikiLeaks):
Podesta torture chamber email
(4) In an appearance at Duke University on November 29, 2017, the charming John Podesta reacts to a question about Pizzagate from someone in the audience:

Tell Congress to release the 'explosive' FISA memo that'll put officials in jail!

Update: Full FISA Memo released!!!
Yesterday, January 18, members of the House of Representatives were given a four-page memo, described by journalist Sara Carter as so “shocking” and “explosive”, it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the end of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.
According to ZeroHedge, the memo details the Obama Administration’s abuse of power in ordering a FISA wire-tapping of then-candidate Donald Trump, as well as the administration’s extensive and illegal collusion with the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump during and after the 2016 presidential election.

Note: FISA or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 is a federal law that establishes procedures for the U.S. government’s physical and electronic surveillance of foreign powers and domestic (U.S.) agents of foreign powers suspected of espionage or terrorism. The Act created the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

In 2016, the Obama Administration used the “Russian dossier” and its  baseless claim of a Russian-Trump collusion as the pretext for a FISA court-approved surveillance on then-candidate Donald Trump and members of the Trump campaign, including phone- and wire-taps.

Members of the House of Representatives who have seen the memo are calling for its immediate release, including:

  1. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told Fox News: “It is so alarming the American people have to see this.
  2. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said: “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”
  3. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) tweeted: “I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was & .
  4. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) tweeted: “Immediately #ReleaseTheMemo #FISAMemo & ALL relevant material sourced in it. Every American needs to know the truth! We wouldn’t be revealing any sources & methods that we shouldn’t; only feds’ reliance on bad sources & methods.”
  5. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) tweeted: “The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation. While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth.”
  6. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), referring to DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr, said, “I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice” and that “people will go to jail“.
  7. According to Sara Carter, a senior government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the memo, said: “The document shows a troubling course of conduct and we need to make the document available, so the public can see it. Once the public sees it, we can hold the people involved accountable in a number of ways. Some of these people should no longer be in government.

WikiLeaks is offering a reward of up to $1 million for the memo.

A source told Fox News that releasing the memo to the public requires a committee vote and as long as there are no objections from the White House within five days. 
Clearly, the above Congressmen have gone public urging for the release of the memo, hoping that “outside” pressure from the American people could be brought to bear on the House.

#ReleaseTheMemo !!!

Why did U.S. State Department purchase frozen penguin pineal glands from Argentina?

It’s Sunday night. Not much is happening beyond the usual, never-ending political bickering.
Are you in the mood for a mystery?
Among the treasure trove of documents obtained by WikiLeaks is a very curious telegram on August 1, 1973, sent from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the U.S. State Department, concerning the shipment of frozen penguin pineal glands. The telegram says the shipment would arrive in Boston on August 4, 1973.
Below is a screenshot of the telegram:

In August 1973, William P. Rogers was Secretary of State in the Richard Nixon administration.
Penguins are native to the Southern Hemisphere. A common misconception is that penguins are only found in Antarctica. In fact, major populations of penguins are found in Angola, Antarctica, Argentina, Australia, Chile, Namibia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Several penguin species are found in the temperate zone: one species, the Galapagos penguin, lives near the equator!
Two interesting and really cool things about penguins:

  1. Their flippers have at least three branches of the axillary artery. They limit heat loss from flippers by enabling cold blood to be heated by blood that has already been warmed. This system allows penguins to efficiently use their body heat and explains why such small animals can survive in the extreme cold of Antarctica.
  2. Penguins can drink salt water because their supraorbital gland filters excess salt from the bloodstream. The salt is then excreted in a concentrated fluid from the nasal passages.

But why was the U.S. State Department so interested in penguin pineal glands? Searching around the net, this is what I found:

  • The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the brains of nearly all vertebrates. The shape of the gland resembles a pine cone, hence the name “pineal gland”. Located in the epithalamus, near the center of the brain between the two hemispheres, the gland is tucked in a groove where the two halves of the thalamus join.
  • From the point of view of evolution, the pineal gland is a kind of atrophied photoreceptor. In the epithalamus of some species of amphibians and reptiles, the gland is linked to a light-sensing organ — the parietal eye, aka pineal or third eye.
  • French philosopher René Descartes believed the pineal gland to be the “principal seat of the soul“.
  • Function: The primary function of the pineal gland is to produce the hormone melatonin, which helps modulate sleep patterns. Since melatonin production is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light, the long Antarctica winter would mean the pineal glands of Antarctica penguins produce a lot of melatonin. Studies on rodents suggest that melatonin can protect against neurodegeneration.
  • According to a 1975 article in the International Journal of Biometeorology, polar mammals, such as walruses and some seals, possess unusually large pineal glands. The article does not say if polar penguins also have unusually large pineal glands.
  • Pineal glands become calcified — the accumulation of calcium salts. Calcification has been observed in children as young as two years of age, and increases with age. Some studies show that the degree of pineal gland calcification is significantly higher in patients with Alzheimer’s disease vs. other types of dementia.
  • Pineal glands of mammals like rodents contain Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) — a tryptamine molecule that some call “the spirit molecule”. DMT can be consumed as a powerful psychedelic drug and has historically been used by various cultures for ritual and healing purposes. Illegal in most countries, DMT can be inhaled, injected, or orally ingested.
