Who Cares? Headline Debates are Wasting Your Time

from Daily Bell:

NFL players are kneeling, standing, sitting maybe, and probably laying down at times. Perhaps they are protesting police killings, or maybe they hate America, and some of them are very patriotic and do or do not support Donald Trump. I don’t know. Who cares?

How many headlines has this stupid manufactured controversy taken up? How many arguments and fights have ensued? Do people even know what they are arguing over?

North Korea is shooting missiles, and Trump is calling Kim Jung Un Rocket Man. Okay, this one seems a little more relevant to my life. I don’t want to be blown up. But is there anything I can do to stop Kim Jung Un or Trump from doing what they are doing? Is my worry going to solve anything?

Those are the big ones in the news right now, but there is still the usual cocktail of crime, death, and fear. And don’t get me wrong, it is great to stay up to date with what is going on. Knowing what crazy actions the Federal Reserve is going to take can help you protect your finances. Being aware of government abuses can help you steer clear of becoming a victim. Understanding what laws and regulations coming down the pipe can allow you to make a decision about how to structure your life to avoid the brunt of it.

But the big headlines, the “news” that is shoved down our throats doesn’t actually have to do with real life. It is all distraction. The news is just full of memes meant to elicit an emotional response and corral our behavior into one of a few pre-determined pens.

If you want the best dissection of cultural memes, watch South Park. Last season, in one episode the NFL announcers told fans and players to stand for the national anthem–or sit, or kneel–in order to show their support. Problem solved.

Climate alarmists demand imprisonment of climate change skeptics … want to charge them with MURDER

by Tracey Watson, NaturalNews:

It’s official: The last vestiges of common sense have now finally gone out the window. The Washington Times is reporting that climate alarmists are calling for those who do not buy into the catastrophic man-made global warming narrative to be jailed … for murder! That’s right folks; if you don’t accept the idea that humans are causing temperatures to soar at an alarming rate and destroying the planet, you’re a murderer – and must be punished as such.

Recent headlines clearly reflect the increasing frustration felt by climate change fanatics.

A September 1 headline in Outline declared, “Climate change denial should be a crime,” with writer Brian Merchant claiming, “In the wake of Harvey, it’s time to treat science denial as gross negligence — and hold those who do the denying accountable.”

An article a week later in the Nation boldly stated that, “Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” with the writer angrily declaring that “murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”

These writers and other global warming believers claim that any who contradict or refuse to accept this belief – but particularly those in governmental and other positions of authority – should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Alarmism has risen exponentially since Hurricanes Harvey and Irma made landfall in the States, with many – mistakenly – believing that global warming was responsible for their exceptional power and destructiveness. (Related: Preppers see Hurricane Harvey as a precursor for what’s coming; some disasters are just too big for governments to handle.)

Look Around! Common Law Works. Government Statute Doesn’t.

0

from Daily Bell:

How can something be considered a crime if there is no victim?

This is a problem. You can go through life making sure you don’t hurt anyone, and still break the law. Wouldn’t that be great if you could simply base your actions on common sense and respect for the standards of a community?

Instead, people must also make sure they don’t do anything labeled wrong by the government. Of course, it is impossible to know all the laws which the government has created. And what they call wrong is not always intuitive, nor offensive.

Government statute law goes beyond the resolution of disputes between individuals and groups. In contrast, the whole point of common law was to settle disputes in non-violent ways.

Now, there are third-party enforcers trolling around looking for a statute that has been broken. There doesn’t have to be a victim. No one has to have been wronged by the legal breach. They actually create conflict instead of resolving it. Their actions often lead to violent altercations, rather than deescalating disputes.

In an essay called “The Obviousness of Anarchy,” John Hasnas discusses the origins of common law, and how it was born out of anarchy. He says that clearly, no society can exist without governance. Part of the definition of a society is that it is somewhat organized and held together by common traditions. But that does not necessarily mean government, as the term has come to be understood.

In arguing for anarchy, I am arguing that a society without a central political authority is not only possible but desirable. That is all I am doing, however. I am not arguing for a society without coercion. I am not arguing for a society that abides by the libertarian non-aggression principle or any other principle of justice. I am not arguing for the morally ideal organisation of society. I am not arguing for utopia. What constitutes ideal justice and the perfectly just society is a fascinating philosophical question, but it is one that is irrelevant to the current pursuit. I am arguing only that human beings can live together successfully and prosper in the absence of a centralised coercive authority. To make the case for anarchy, that is all that is required.

Public School Accuses 5 Year Old of Making Terrorist Threats

0

from Daily Bell:

When I was in kindergarten, I found a knife in the pocket of a hand-me-down jacket I was wearing for the first time. I gave it to my teacher, and I don’t remember her reacting at all. She gave the knife to my parents when they picked me up at the end of the day. And that was that.

I used to run around at recess at that age with the other kids, and use bent sticks as fake guns. We shot at each other, rolled down hills dying from fake bullet wounds, and used pinecones as grenades. Looking back that sounds a little bit morbid, but I think I ended up fine. I didn’t torture small animals nor did I become a serial killer. In fact, I never killed anything bigger than a bug until a few weeks ago when I slaughtered some chickens for the first time.

I’m pretty confident that some of my 5-year-old artwork in school included death and destruction. But that was decades ago. Now, kids are labeled terrorists for acting like kids.

It’s no wonder kids pretend the way they do with the violent focus of the media. You probably couldn’t insulate your kid from bombs and bloodshed if you tried. I wouldn’t be surprised if they discussed it in the kindergarten class.

Yet a 5-year-old was suspended for making a terrorist threat. The tuition-free public charter school in Modesto California said the five-year-old intentionally made threats meant to intimidate and harass.

The kid, Jackson, told the teacher he couldn’t take off his backpack because there was a bomb in it, and it would explode if he did. Sounds like a hero to me.

Vaccine industry celebrates Disneyland measles outbreak operation as a huge success, seeks to model similar outbreaks for more fear propaganda

by Tracy Watson, NaturalNews:

There’s nothing quite as effective as a good outbreak story to keep the masses in line when it comes to vaccines. While resistance to vaccine mandates and the CDC’s vaccination schedule have been steadily growing in recent years, there is no doubt that the mainstream media can manipulate an outbreak story very effectively to frighten some who were unsure into vaccinating their children. This was recently confirmed by a study which sought to determine how best the media can manipulate an outbreak story in the “most compelling” way. The study was published in the journal Vaccine.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 28 December 2014 and 8 February 2015, 125 people were diagnosed with measles after visiting one of the Disney theme parks or having contact with someone who did.

Interestingly, according to that same report, only 45 percent of these patients were unvaccinated, but the mainstream media made sure nobody knew that.

The research team set out to see which stories received the most play, particularly on social media, with a view to using the same strategies in the future.

The authors went on to examine how best to get a pro-vaccine article to “go viral.” Their conclusion? Include “a clear bottom-line message explaining the meaning of vaccination.” (Related: Learn how the mainstream media manipulates the facts at Outbreak.news.)

The team discovered that articles that only contained anecdotes or stories were not likely to move anyone to action, while articles that contained facts and statistics did marginally better. To really get people frightened and motivated, they determined, an article “must clearly explain the bottom line, or gist, of vaccination.”

The study skirts around the issue of what this bottom line is, but one can only imagine that it would run along the lines of: If you don’t get vaccinated you will put others in harm’s way and leave yourself and your children vulnerable to terrible diseases. Vaccination, on the other hand, is 100 percent safe and 100 percent effective.

The problem is, this is simply not true. Vaccines are neither 100 percent effective nor perfectly safe. In truth, they contain ingredients and adjuvants that many people are not comfortable with, and carry the risk of serious side effects. (Related: CDC lies – Measles outbreaks confirmed among children already vaccinated.)

As an example of this, let’s examine the vaccine package insert for the MMR (mumps, measles and rubella) vaccine, as posted online by Merck, the vaccine’s manufacturer.

First off, the growth medium for the vaccine contains recombinant human albumin – the serum albumin found in human blood, derived from aborted fetuses. This would already be enough to disturb the consciences of thousands of potential patients, but you’ll never hear the media breathe a word about it.

Zuckerberg To Spend $1 Billion On Video Content

by Jamie White | Infowars.com:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is poised to spend $1 billion on creating original video content for the social media platform through next year, according to a report.

The social media giant is willing to spend $1 billion through 2018 to quickly expand its reach and influence through original video content, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

Zuckerberg hinted last year that video would soon dominate social media.

“We’re entering this new golden age of video,” Zuckerberg said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you fast-forward five years and most of the content that people see on Facebook and are sharing on a day-to-day basis is video.”
