The Deceit of ‘The Steady State’ – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on September 13, 2018

Yes, he’s a loose cannon, untied, rolling mightily and unpredictably around the deck of this ship in a terrible storm. You don’t know what he will destroy in his path. You don’t know who he will destroy. And that’s okay. In fact, a lot of Americans want the whole ship destroyed, and rebuilt differently, and all the officers permanently removed – the more, the better. That’s one path to greater freedom. They chose Trump because they wanted D.C. to turn into a figment of the corrupt state we knew, to turn into something unrecognizable, because moderation doesn’t work against these extremists.

The New York Times as Iago, by Diana Johnstone – The Unz Review

Posted by M. C. Fox on September 9, 2018

When nobody, not even the President of the United States, has the right to meet and talk with Russian leaders, there is only one remaining form of exchange. When dialogue is impossible, all that is left is force and violence. That is what is being promoted by the most influential media in the United States.

http://www.unz.com/article/the-new-york-times-as-iago/

The New York Times continues to outdo itself in the production of fake news. There is no more reliable source of fake news than the intelligence services, which regularly provide their pet outlets (NYT and WaPo) with sensational stories that are as unverifiable as their sources are anonymous. A prize example was the August 24 report that US intelligence agencies don’t know anything about Russia’s plans to mess up our November elections because “informants close to … Putin and in the Kremlin” aren’t saying anything. Not knowing anything about something for which there is no evidence is a rare scoop.

A story like that is not designed to “inform the public” since there is no information in it. It has other purposes: to keep the “Russia is undermining our democracy” story on front pages, with the extra twist in this case of trying to make Putin distrustful of his entourage. The Russian president is supposed to wonder, who are those informants in my entourage?

But that was nothing compared to the whopper produced by the “newpaper of record” on September 5. (By the way, the “record” is stuck in the same groove: Trump bad, Putin bad – bad bad bad.) This was the sensational oped headlined “I am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration”, signed by nobody. Read the rest of this entry »

Forum of Fools – Taki’s Magazine

Posted by M. C. Fox on September 6, 2018

The halitosis of the Times and Cohen’s intellect is overpowering at times—no pun intended—so my paternal advice to Takimag readers is to try to avoid Athens for those four days in late September and if need be go to Palm Beach instead.

The New York Times has announced a forum to discuss democracy in the cradle of democracy, Athens, sometime in September of this year. It is as if the late John Gotti held a forum to discuss crime in Chicago, God rest his soul. Gotti committed crimes in order to live like a Sulzberger. Sulzberger commits crimes daily by slanting news and waging unremitting war on whites, Christians, and those of us who are attracted to the opposite sex.

In an advertisement for the upcoming forum in my hometown—as if we didn’t have enough problems already, as they say in Tel Aviv-on-the-Hudson—I noticed that “emerging democracies are backsliding into authoritarianism…” and other such slanders the Times publishes daily. This is a libel against Poland and Hungary, two nations that are resisting central control by Brussels and also telling illegal Africans to leg it back to their own continent.

But the reason I write this has nothing to do with the two best countries in Europe, which are both Christian as well as independent enough to tell the unelected capos in Brussels to shove it. I write because of the small print accompanying the advert:

EconomicPolicyJournal.com: “The New York Times” Publishes a Genius

Posted by M. C. Fox on September 1, 2018

So how do things get made and services performed if everyone sits back waiting for their free stuff?

Please explain. Oh yeah, taxes from people waiting for free stuff!?!?

Taxes are the penalty you pay for being productive and contributing to society.

“The New York Times” Publishes a Genius

The New York Times features an op-ed today by Corey Robin, a professor of political science at Brooklyn College and the City University of New York Graduate Center.

Under the title, The New Socialists: Why the pitch from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders resonates in 2018, he concludes his essay with this gem:

The socialist, by contrast, believes that making things free makes people free.

Oh yeah, who needs to understand supply and demand and that we live in a world of scarcity, just declare everything free for everybody.

Are the Elderly Really Taking Too Many Vitamins?

Posted by M. C. Fox on May 31, 2018

That’s 106,000 dead Americans every year from properly prescribed drugs, not medical errors; drugs taken as directed, not overdose. That means that each decade, “normal” side effects of drugs are killing about 1 million people in the U.S.

I am betting the failing NYT is hooked on drug advertising ‘supplements’.

https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2018/05/27/are-the-elderly-taking-too-many-vitamins.aspx

By Dr. Mercola

The conventional view of dietary supplements is, for the most part, predictably negative. The New York Times recently offered a perfect demonstration of this view in its April 3 article, “Older Americans Are ‘Hooked’ on Vitamins.”1 In this interview, Dr. Andrew Saul, editor-in-chief of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service and author of “Doctor Yourself: Natural Healing That Works” and “Fire Your Doctor: How To Be Independently Healthy,” breaks down the myths and inaccuracies presented in that article.

While drug overdoses are currently killing 63,000 Americans each year — with opioids being responsible for nearly 50,000 of them and being a leading cause of death for Americans under 50 — the media is still pretending that people getting “hooked” on vitamins is a dangerous trend.

“The funny thing is that for those who are hooked on opioids, high doses of vitamin C had been shown — in two really good studies — to enable people to get off opioids without withdrawal symptoms, or greatly reduced withdrawal symptoms. Being hooked on vitamin C would actually help you get unhooked from heroin,” Saul notes.

Getting back to that New York Times article, “The Times has laid-off or fired a very large number of copyeditors … They wanted to save money, so they eliminated the copydesk. They got rid of about 100 copyeditors … In my opinion, this article is a good example of a piece that should have been properly copyedited and fact-checked, and wasn’t,” Saul says…

The New York Times article also states that older Americans get plenty of essential nutrients in their diet, and that the Western diet is not short on vitamins. “This is demonstrably nonsense,” Saul says, adding “The elderly tend to have poor diets in general, especially those who live alone or are institutionalized.”…

Saul also notes that Harvard School of Public Health has assessed the role of drugs in deaths at great depth. When properly prescribed and taken as directed, the lowest estimated death toll from pharmaceutical drugs is still around 85,000 people a year. The high estimate is around 135,000 people annually, while the generally accepted estimate is about 106,000 people a year.

That’s 106,000 dead Americans every year from properly prescribed drugs, not medical errors; drugs taken as directed, not overdose. That means that each decade, “normal” side effects of drugs are killing about 1 million people in the U.S.

According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), which has been tracking this information for over three decades, there have been 13 alleged deaths from vitamins in 31 years. However, Saul notes, “My team looked into this and we could not find substantiation, documentation, proof or convincing evidence of one single death … from vitamins in the last 31 years.” In most cases, the individual was taking both drugs and vitamins…

As a general rule, most Americans are not getting enough vitamins, minerals and micronutrients from their foods, in large part thanks to the prevalence of processed foods. Dietary supplements, especially if your diet is largely processed, is generally advisable. In the long term, growing more nutrient-dense food is a big part of the answer…

Why a “Media Blockade” Could be Right for You | The Daily Bell

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 13, 2018

You will discover there is a whole different world that the media do not want you to see.

The New York Times ran a piece called The Man Who Knew Too Little.

Too little of what the NYT wants him to know.

http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/why-a-media-blockade-could-be-right-for-you/

By Joe Jarvis

There are things that matter, and there are things that you can control. There are few things that matter and that you can control. Focus on these.

For instance, preventing global nuclear war matters. But you cannot control it.

You can control what color car you drive. But this doesn’t really matter.

But eating healthy matters, and you can control it.

The New York Times ran a piece called The Man Who Knew Too Little. He decided to create a news blockade in his life after Trump got elected last year…. Read the rest of this entry »

Light It Up

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 6, 2018

http://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/light-it-up-2/

It must be hard on The New York Times editors to set their hair on fire day after day in their effort to start World War Three. Today’s lead story, Russian Threat on Two Fronts Meets Strategic Void in the U.S., aims to keep ramping up twin hysterias over a new missile gap and fear of Russian “meddling” in the 2018 midterm elections… Read the rest of this entry »

Neocons Hate LRC – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on December 29, 2017

If Google, NYT and WaPo hate it. You should like it.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/12/lew-rockwell/neocons-hate-lrc/

 …Murray has more and more influence. Both NyTi and WaPo are notoriously close to the CIA. National Review was founded by CIA agent Bill Buckley, and all continue to fight for the welfare-warfare state, and smear anyone, especially on the right, who doesn’t join their cabal….

The ‘Lost Cause’ of Bolshevism – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on November 10, 2017

I am amazed at how the media and government schools continually forget about Uncle Joe’s starvation of a people. It didn’t bother FDR.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/11/william-l-anderson/the-new-york-times-and-the-lost-cause-of-bolshevism/

According to the New York Times, we should be mourning the passage of this era and all of its promises of a better life for all.

New York Times Acknowledges US Global Empire – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on October 30, 2017

The NYT has finally seen the interventionist elephant in the room. The problem is they have only gotten as far as the trunk.

http://original.antiwar.com/srichman/2017/10/29/new-york-times-acknowledges-us-global-empire/

The Oct. 22 editorial, “America’s Forever Wars,” began:

The United States has been at war continuously since the attacks of 9/11 and now has just over 240,000 active-duty and reserve troops in at least 172 countries and territories.

That alone ought to come as a shock to nearly all Americans. The UN has 193 member states — and the US government has a military presence in at least 89 percent of them! The Times does not mention that the government also maintains at least 800 military bases and installations around the world. That’s a big government we’re talking about. And empires are bloody expensive.

The Times went on: Read the rest of this entry »
