Yes, Xi Jinping intentionally killed thousands of people in his own country with a man made virus and stalled his own economy intentionally. That was all part of his nefarious Fu Manchu plan.

It is not just at sea that North America’s smallest marine mammals with a huge appetite are benefitting the ecosystem

Sea otters eat 25% of their body weight each day to maintain their body heat.  Sea otters eat 25% of their body weight each day to maintain their body heat.

When Brent Hughes started studying the seagrass beds of Elkhorn Slough, an estuary in Monterey Bay on California’s central coast, he was surprised by what he found. In this highly polluted estuary, excessive nutrients from agricultural runoff spur the growth of algae on seagrass leaves, which kills the plants. Yet in 2010, Hughes noticed that the seagrass beds were thriving. It did not make sense.

 Records show that otters were once abundant in California’s estuaries.

“This is the highest nutrient concentration that I had ever seen on the planet,” says Hughes, a biologist at Sonoma State University. “Any model would suggest there should be no seagrass there and yet it was expanding.”

Hughes set out to solve the mystery. He examined every possible factor, including water quality, temperature and changes in seagrass coverage over time, going back 50 years. He was not making any progress until he was approached by a boat captain named Yohn Gideon who had been running wildlife tours in the slough since 1995. Over the years, the captain had handed clickers to his passengers, asking them to count the sea otters they saw.

Hughes overlaid the captain’s sea otter counts with historical seagrass coverage data and realised the two graphs were almost perfectly in sync. When sea otter numbers went up, seagrass went up, too. “You don’t see that very often in ecology. That was a eureka moment,” he says.

AMERICAN RENEWAL
The Twilight Of Great American Cities Is Here. Can We Stop It?

Some urban refugees are even looking beyond the suburbs to the countryside. In New York, the rural counties north of the city have experienced a huge increases in demand even as demand for city apartments drops. This pattern is also seen in other rural getaways such as Montana, rural Colorado, Oregon and Maine.

Even before COVID-19, millennials, as we found in a recent study for Heartland Forward, have been heading to second- or third-tier metropolitan areas like Fargo, Des Moines, Fayetteville and Grand Rapids. These areas are gaining migrants even as some big cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago have actually lost millennials over the past five years.

Leon Trotsky Murdered With Ice Pick

Richard Cavendish History Today August 20, 2020
 
Born in the Ukraine in 1879 and later hailed by one admirer as the greatest Jew since Jesus Christ, Lev Bronstein became famous under another name. From 1902 he called himself Trotsky, adapted from the German word trotz, essentially meaning ‘defiance’, which would prove prophetic. He was a leading figure in the Bolshevik movement under Lenin, after whose death in 1924 he was the most important victim of Joseph Stalin’s insatiable lust for power.

Trotsky was expelled from the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in 1927 and exiled to Turkey in 1929. He and his wife, Natalia Sedova, later moved to France and then to Norway. In December 1936 Trotsky, now 56, and Natalia were put on a freighter to cross the Atlantic to Mexico. There they were warmly welcomed by the Mexican president, the former revolutionary leader Lazaro Cardenas, and taken to live in the Coyoacan area of Mexico City at the home of two other admirers, the painters Diego Rivera and his wife Frida Kahlo, with whom Trotsky had an affair.

The Mask of the Joker
photo credit: Bigstock

Why has the world become so indignant? Boredom. The Olympic ability to have fun is in sharp decline in the new age of the cyborg brought on by nanotechnological morons. People gather to eat armed with their mobile phones, which they leave on the table like a cowboy does his Colt .45 next to his plate of eggs and beans. The youngest grow up hypnotized by tablets and push buttons with the ardor of a sensual neophyte looking for the G-spot. The new inquisition of political correctness kills spontaneity, free thinking, and humor. In this way the art of conversation is lost unless you are overtaken by the divine gift of drunkenness.

It is as if planet virus has put on the grotesque mask of the Joker and thinks only of complaining and destroying. If someone is perpetually offended, they believe to be ad hoc with the Valley of Tears. The spirit of the times is being dominated by the ayatollahs of boredom: the bolas tristes (sad balls), in Argentinean slang.

Paradoxically, the capacity for boredom and the depression that comes with it are greater in that which has so vainly been called the first world. Could it be comparable to that medieval sin that was the acedia, the vital tedium that seized monks exhausted by copying luminous manuscripts from the Hellenistic era?

Today’s bores are more dangerous, and they aim to self-immolate the planet. Their antidote is to decapitate statues or to arm an urban guerrilla, which apparently gives a temporary euphoria to the vandals of the civilization that has lived better than any in the history of humanity. In the second or third world, whoever gets bored can also become a terrorist. But most prefer to laugh and live from day to day, which is certainly more elegant.

Neither does the propaganda of fear and the multitude of lies that go viral from a powerful media, which only seeks to terrify, help to raise one’s spirits. This new international movement is fanatical in the fight against any kind of religion (but especially Christianity, which is currently turning the other cheek instead of turning a pyre). In its indignation, the offended new age does not even allow the sweet balm of comfort to those who confess to be believers. As if that were not enough, the atheist prick spends his life talking about God.

 
“The capacity for boredom and the depression that comes with it are greater in that which has so vainly been called the first world.”

But when did the new age movement stumble? A great friend, the humanist Luis Racionero, lived through the hippie era in the California of the ’60s. He lived in a macrobiotic commune and had a love affair with a splendid black woman who was proud of her skin before BLM. There they invited guru Allan Watts to dinner. When he was offered orange or beet juice as a drink, Watts made a display of Zen serenity and pulled a gin flask out of his kimono sleeve. When a passionate activist told him about her efforts to save the world, Watts replied, “My dear, you’re going to have enough work in saving yourself. Leave the world tranquil.”

Racionero confessed to me that this demonstration of drink did away with a lot of nonsense. Thus he found the good Titian red cocktail negroni, wrote Philosophies of the Underground, and refused to swallow any totalitarian prohibitions. He was always a hippie, but an elegant sybarite hippie who knew how to laugh at himself.

The traveler Patrick Leigh Fermor found these verses in a hunting lodge of the Emperor Maximilian:

“Live, don’t know how long,
And die, don’t know when;
Must go, don’t know where;
I am astonished I am so cheerful.”

Joy can be a personal conquest or a gift from heaven, but it is the most elegant attitude to walk through the daily miracle of life. If you have to fight, you fight, but don’t let the bolas tristes make your existence a bitter one.

The CIA Versus the Kennedys

By Jacob G. Hornberger

LewRockwell.comanti-stateanti-warpro-market

The Future of Freedom Foundation

August 22, 2020

Former Congressman Ron Paul and his colleague Dan McAdams recently conducted a fascinating interview with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., which focused in part on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was Kennedy Jr.’s uncle. The interview took place on their program the Ron Paul Liberty Report.

Owing to the many federal records that have been released over the years relating to the Kennedy assassination, especially through the efforts of the Assassination Records Review Board in the 1990s, many Americans are now aware of the war that was being waged between President Kennedy and the CIA throughout his presidency. The details of this war are set forth in FFF’s book  JFK’s War with the National Security Establishment: Why Kennedy Was Assassinated by Douglas Horne.

In the interview, Robert Kennedy Jr. revealed a fascinating aspect of this war with which I was unfamiliar. He stated that the deep animosity that the CIA had for the Kennedy family actually stretched back to something the family patriarch, Joseph P. Kennedy, did in the 1950s that incurred the wrath of Allen Dulles, the head of the CIA.

Kennedy Jr. stated that his grandfather, Joseph P. Kennedy, had served on a commission that was charged with examining and analyzing CIA covert activities, or “dirty tricks” as Kennedy Jr. put them. As part of that commission, Kennedy Jr stated, Joseph Kennedy (John Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy’s father) had determined that the CIA had done bad things with its regime-change operations that were destroying democracies, such as in Iran and Guatemala.

Consequently, Joseph Kennedy recommended that the CIA’s power to engage in covert activities be terminated and that the CIA be strictly limited to collecting intelligence and empowered to do nothing else.

According to Kennedy Jr., “Allen Dulles never forgave him — never forgave my family — for that.”

I wasn’t aware of that fact. I assumed that the war between President Kennedy and the CIA had begun with the CIA’s invasion at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. The additional information added by Kennedy Jr. places things in a much more fascinating and revealing context.

Upon doing a bit of research on the Internet, I found that the commission that Kennedy Jr. must have been referring to was the President’s Board of Consultants on Foreign Intelligence Activities, which President Eisenhower had established in 1956 through Executive Order 10656. Eisenhower appointed Joseph Kennedy to serve on that commission.

That year was three years after the CIA’s 1953 regime change operation in Iran which destroyed that country’s democratic system. It was two years after the CIA’s regime-change operation in Guatemala that destroyed that country’s democratic system.

Keep in mind that the ostensible reason that the CIA engaged in these regime-change operations was to protect “national security,” which over time has become the most important term in the American political lexicon. Although no one has ever come up with an objective definition for the term, the CIA’s power to address threats to “national security,” including through coups and assassinations, became omnipotent.

Yet, here was Joseph P. Kennedy declaring that the CIA’s power to exercise such powers should be terminated and recommending that the CIA’s power be strictly limited to intelligence gathering.

It is not difficult to imagine how livid CIA Director Dulles and his cohorts must have been at Kennedy. No bureaucrat likes to have his power limited. More important, for Dulles and his cohorts, it would have been clear that if Kennedy got his way, “national security” would be gravely threatened given the Cold War that the United States was engaged in with the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, North Korea, and other communist nations.

Now consider what happened with the Bay of Pigs. The CIA’s plan for a regime-change invasion of Cuba, was conceived under President Eisenhower. Believing that Vice President Nixon would be elected president in 1960, the CIA was quite surprised that Kennedy was elected instead. To ensure that the invasion would go forth anyway, the CIA assured Kennedy that the invasion would succeed without U.S. air support. It was a lie. The CIA assumed that once the invasion was going to go down in defeat at the hands of the communists, Kennedy would have to provide the air support in order to “save face.”

But Kennedy refused to be played by the CIA. When the CIA’s army of Cuban exiles was going down in defeat, the CIA requested the air support, convinced that their plan to manipulate the new president would work. It didn’t. Kennedy refused to provide the air support and the CIA’s invasion went down in defeat.

Now consider what happened after the Bay of Pigs: Knowing that the CIA had played him and double-crossed him, John Kennedy fired Allen Dulles as CIA director, along with his chief deputy, Charles Cabell. He then put his younger brother Bobby Kennedy in charge of monitoring the CIA, which infuriated the CIA.

Now jump ahead to the Cuban Missile Crisis, which Kennedy resolved by promising that the United States would not invade Cuba for a regime-change operation. That necessarily would leave a permanent communist regime in Cuba, something that the CIA steadfastly maintained was a grave threat to “national security”— a much bigger threat, in fact, than the threats supposedly posed by the regimes in Iran in 1953 and Guatemala in 1954.

And then Kennedy did the unforgivable, at least insofar as the CIA was concerned. In his famous Peace Speech at American University in June 1963, he declared an end to the entire Cold War and announced that the United States was going to establish friendly and peaceful relations with the communist world.

Kennedy had thrown the gauntlet down in front of the CIA. It was either going to be his way or the CIA’s way. There was no room for compromise, and both sides knew it.

In the minds of former CIA Director Allen Dulles and the people still at the CIA, what Kennedy was doing was anathema and, even worse, the gravest threat to “national security” the United States had ever faced, a much bigger threat than even that posed by the democratic regimes in Iran and Guatemala. At that point, the CIA’s animosity toward President Kennedy far exceeded the animosity it had borne toward his father, Joseph P. Kennedy, several years before.

HISTORY
If The Founders Didn’t Compromise On Slavery, The Constitution And United States Wouldn’t Exist

Why are Americans debating whether the Constitution is a pro-slavery document more than 150 years after the abolition of slavery? Can it be that, after decades of disinterest, Americans have suddenly realized history is fascinating?

Historical debates are usually fairly esoteric, more likely to bore than to excite the general public. When historical debates inflame passions beyond the circles of academic history, it is a sign that the debate is not really about the past, but about the present. So it goes with the Constitution; the historical debate about slavery in the Constitution is heated because it is fundamental to current political arguments over the charge that America is systemically racist.
