Dailywire Article-Stanford Medical Professor Tasked With Investigating UFO-Inflicted Brain Injuries That Killed Over 100 Troops, Tucker Carlson Says

Posted by M. C. on March 17, 2023

Wowser!!! Aliens!!! This smells like a pathetic government failure cover-up.

100+ poor souls unknowing victims of some MKUltra type experiment? How about some equipment or environmental disaster?

When one has Iraqi burn pit, 30+ year Camp LeJune chemical cesspool of a water supply and agent orange lawsuits to worry about one can excuse a poorly concocted set of cover-up lies.

In a now-viral podcast interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the primetime news anchor said a Stanford professor told him that federal officials tasked the educator with investigating several cases of troops dying from traumatic brain injuries caused by UFOs.

Carlson shared the story during a “Full Send Podcast” interview last week, where he claimed an unidentified tenured Stanford Medical professor, who specializes in traumatic brain injuries, reached out to his team requesting to appear on the Fox News show to talk about a decade-old conversation between him and the U.S. government.

“He’s like, 11 years ago, the U.S. government reached out to me because I’m an expert on head injuries on brain injuries … traumatic brain injuries … as a physician,” Carlson said. “And they had all these court cases from families of U.S. servicemen — over 100 — who had been killed by UFOs. And the Department of Defense was refusing to give them death benefits or medical benefits.”

According to Carlson, the anonymous source said he was an expert researcher and witness who claimed nuclear energy appears to attract UFOs in such cases.

“For example, UFOs appear to be attracted, for whatever reason to nuclear energy,”Carlson said. “So at nuclear missile bases in the Upper Midwest, for example, nuclear powered aircraft carriers, nuclear powered submarines are all getting buzzed by these objects, including underwater.”

“And in a number of cases, these things have landed on military bases … servicemen have approached them … and they approach, and they get a traumatic brain injury, brain damage, or they’re killed,” Carlson said.

Carlson said there are dozens of open court cases that support the claim.

Risk Benefit of the Vaccines Is NEGATIVE According to a New Paper From Stanford, UCLA, Others. Whoops!

Posted by M. C. on June 24, 2022

Peter Doshi is an author of this paper. This paper puts my status as a “misinformation spreader” in serious jeopardy. They may have to start calling me a “truth teller” soon.

By Steve Kirsch
Steve’s Kirsch newsletter

This preprint paper, Serious Adverse Events of Special Interest Following mRNA Vaccination in Randomized Trialswas written by a team of highly credible authors and is now undergoing peer review. It points out that the vaccines carry more risk than benefit.

Big whoops. That’s not what the CDC and FDA have been saying. This is really embarrassing for them that now others are starting to discover what I’ve been saying for over a year now.

Don’t expect the mainstream media to cover this or ask any questions. That’s not the way it works.

Tennessee and Publix Super Markets get it

Woo hoo!

Pushback Against Wokeness at Stanford

Posted by M. C. on April 28, 2022

Will the Stanford Review get cancelled?

By Vasko Kohlmayer

A truly heartening piece of news comes out of Stanford: The Stanford Review, the school’s independent newspaper, is taking a bold stand against [the] unhinged progressivism that has taken over so many American universities.

This Monday they started a series called “Woke Watch.”

This is a laudable pushback against woke insanity at one of America’s premier institutions of higher learning.

This is what the Review staff wrote in the editorial in which they announced the launch of their admirable initiative:

“No idea should be off-limits at a university. But when an ideology becomes so prevalent that it is nearly impossible to challenge, it becomes a serious problem—and a threat to academic freedom. Over the last few years, Stanford has been taken over by a collection of theories that view society as consisting only of the oppressors and the oppressed, see words as violent and disagreement as danger, and deny the existence of objective truth. Whether these theories are called anti-racism; social justice; Critical Theory; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; or simply being “on the right side of history;” their effect is the same. They chill free speech, encourage conformity, and demonize disagreement. We at the Review are deeply concerned about the stranglehold these ideas place on rational discourse. In this spirit, we are launching “Woke Watch,” a new series that gives readers an inside look into how wokeness is rotting the intellectual foundations of one of America’s leading universities.”

It is worth reading this excellent short editorial in full which you can do here.

God’s speed to the very brave writers and editors at The Stanford Review. They are taking their good fight straight to the lions’ den.

There is every indication that they have their work cut out for them, since Stanford – like most American universities – has its share of noxious progressive educators. Earlier this month, the Review ran a story on a Stanford mathematics professor by the name of Jo Boaler. Boaler uses her prestigious position to influence public education policy in California as well as in the United States. Boaler happens to be one of the co-authors of the California Math Framework (CMF), which sets out guidelines for math education for millions of California’s pupils. The document asserts – among other things – that the notion of gifted children is a “myth.” The project is largely an attack on high standards in learning and teaching, which is something that a number of sane professors and educators have objected to.

One of those who has criticized Boaler is a Berkeley professor Jelani Nelson, who is black. Nelson argued that the guidelines co-authored by Boaler will harm minorities in particular, because they promote low quality of work. When Nelson also pointed out that Boaler was charging the government $5,000 per hour for her “consulting” work, Boaler did what most good, white progressive leftists do in such situations: she called the police and lawyers to silence her opponent.

This shows that the staff of The Stanford Review will have no shortage of good material for their “Woke Watch.”

May their work shed light of truth on the progressives’ hypocrisy, greed, immorality, lies and totalitarian mindset.

The woke progressive left represents a great threat to civilization as it aims to subsume and destroy everything that is good, beautiful, holy, decent, and wholesome.

May sanity, openness, tolerance and decency prevail at Stanford and all throughout our world.

What the Father of Kamala Harris Thinks About Marxism

Posted by M. C. on November 5, 2020

Get ready

Don Harris, a prominent Marxist Professor, has been offered a full professorship in the Economics Department here, Department Chairman James Rosse confirmed yesterday. Rosse said Harris has not yet accepted the offer, but he “expects to hear from him this week.”

The father of Kamala Harris is Donald Harris, an immigrant from Jamaica, who taught economics at Stanford University.

He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from London University in 1960. Six years later he received a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of California- Berkeley. He retired from Stanford as a professor emeritus of economics in 1998.

He joined the Stanford faculty in 1972 and his focus according to the University was “exploring the analytical conception of the process of capital accumulation and its implications for a theory of growth of the economy, with the aim of providing thereby an explanation of the intrinsic character of growth as a process of uneven development.”

In other words, there is nothing to indicate in his Stanford profile that he is a Marxist. The words Marx, Marxist, Marxism are nowhere to be found on his profile.

Indeed, when I first looked at his profile when Kamala was in the primaries, I passed him off as an unimpressive affirmative action hire.

He was a special hire all right but the fact that he is Jamaican was a bonus, there is no question he was viewed as an “alternative economist” Marxist hire.

This was the headline from The Stanford Daily when Harris was offered his post.:

The newspaper clip reads:

Marxist Offered Economics Post

Don Harris, a prominent Marxist Professor, has been offered a full professorship in the Economics Department here, Department Chairman James Rosse confirmed yesterday. Rosse said Harris has not yet accepted the offer, but he “expects to hear from him this week.”

Harris who still holds a tenured position at the University of Wisconsin, has served as a visiting Professor here, and is currently teaching at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica.

The appointment is the direct result of student pressure in recent years to hire more faculty who favor an “alternative approach” to economics, said Economics Prof. John Gurley, who now teaches the only undergraduate course in Marxist economics. 

Gurley said the appointment of Harris was the culmination of the six-month “round-the-world” search for the most qualified Marxist professor available

Exceptionally good

Gurley called Harris “an exceptionally good teacher, outstanding researcher and one of the leading young people in Marxist economics.”

One knowledgeable source told the Daily that some senior faculty members were very hesitant hiring Harris, but they gradually yielded tp student pressure.

A conservative economics faculty member, who wished to remain anonymous said he was “not part of the decision and it would not be fair to say anything. “

He also added that “as far as I’m concerned Harris is not in the same field I’m in.”


The department, Gurley said, looked for economists who espoused not only Marxists viewpoints, but other alternative perspectives as well.

Libertarian economists, who advocated untrammeled laissez-faire capitalism,for exa

mple, were considered in the selection, he claimed

Gurley said the search included those knowledgeable about socialist economies even if they didn’t sympathize with a Marxist system.

At Stanford, Harris was one of the key faculty members behind a then-new program, “Alternative Approaches to Economic Analysis” as a field of graduate study at Stanford University.

This is what he wrote about Marxism in his book, Capital Accumulation and Income Distribution (my highlights):

Marx was the theorist of economic growth par excellence. He concieved of the capitalist economy as an inherently expansionary system having an inner logic of its own. It was his purpose to discover the abstract and general principles underlying the operation of this form of society and the contradictions it entailed, so as to account for its process of change and supersession. Out of this scientific endeavor, Marx developed an integrated system of analysis with a distinctive method and quite specific formulation of the laws of motion of the capitalist economy. Others, after Marx, have attempted to elaborate upon and develop further this system of analysis, recognizing the changing conditions of capitalism as it develops. Specific elements of Marx’s own formulation as concerns, for instance, the law of the falling tendency of the rate of profit and a tendency of the organic composition of capital to rise, are subject to an ongoing debate within the Marxian tradition. The system of analysis is also incomplete in some of its essentials. Nevertheless, the Marxian system remains today as a powerful basis upon which to construct a theory of growth of the capitalist economy appropriate to modern conditions. Accordingly, an attempt is made below (see Chapters 3 and 10) to develop some elements of the Marxian theoretical system that are relevant to this purpose.

And that is how the daddy of Kamala rolls.

Kamala received a Bachelor’s degree from Howard University where she double-majored in political science and (ahem) economics and chaired Howard’s economics society.

Posted by M. C. on May 21, 2019

Her Father is a Stanford Economist

There is your clue…

…she has no idea how free markets work or pretends she doesn’t.

That is she wants to create a central planning regulation to determine what equal pay is and determine when it is paid. Talk about setting up politically distorted data tests to prove a problem that doesn’t exist.

As Mark Perry notes:

The 20/23% gender pay gap myth for doing the exact same work is an “apples-to-oranges” statistical fraud that keeps getting recycled and promoted by politicians, the NCPE and AAUW because it apparently has a huge payoff in terms of votes and financial support. And it will continue to have a payoff as long as average Americans, especially women, buy the statistical snake-oil that women are paid 20/23% less than men on average for doing the same job.

It boggles the mind to think about the ways that Harris legislation will interfere with the employment picture. One possibility is that it will eliminate women from some career paths. Who would hire a woman who is worth less in the jobs market, say because she is of child-bearing age or has children so she can’t work overtime, if one is going to be fined for giving such a woman a break?
